IT Business Products : Samsung Leads STEM Education with a Million-Dollar Giveaway

As a global technology leader, Samsung knows the importance of math and science education and is dedicated to promoting enthusiasm for these subjects through its Solve for Tomorrow education program.

To affirm its commitment to advancing innovation in these key areas, Samsung has joined Change the Equation (CTEq) in its effort to answer President Obama’s call to improve science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education for every child in the United States.

Samsung and its partners are addressing this critical education issue by asking teachers in public schools nationwide to submit a short application now through October 24, 2010, for a chance to participate in Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow national video contest.

Fifty classrooms will be chosen to receive a Samsung camcorder and laptop, along with Adobe® Premiere® Elements and Photoshop® Elements software to create videos responding to the question: “How can science or math help improve the environment in your community?”

Winning teachers and students will receive a variety of Samsung electronics, Microsoft and Adobe software, and DIRECTV educational programming valued at over $1 million. As part of Samsung’s Hope for Children initiative, this concerted effort will promote math and science education as a path to fostering sustainable innovation.

Student Kaylynn Hobson and Principal Colter Barnes of Kokhanok School in Kokhanok, Alaska, provided insight into their project and life in Kokhanok, which is a fly-in-only village of 300 people. The students investigated the Spruce Bark Beetle epidemic, which is attributed to global warming and is devastating their local forests. Using algebraic equations, they determined there were 7 million dead trees that needed to be removed from the forests to stop the epidemic. They also recommended environmentally friendly uses of the dead wood, including using it to build homes, heat homes and power homes through the use of Thermal Electric Generators.

Student Jonathan Jackson and Principal Angie Pepin from the South Shore Charter Public School in Norwell, Massachusetts, were invited to the stage to discuss the subject of their video. The school has 535 students and 85 faculty members from 35 towns—with the farthest 37 miles away. After calculating the CO2 emissions of the commuters, the students recognized the need to reduce their carbon footprint. Their solution was the “veggie van,” which runs on vegetable oil. The students have proposed purchasing a new van to further develop their shuttle system.

The Environmental Science class at the Patchogue Medford High School in Medford, New York, conducted a study about the water in their community. The town of Patchogue decided to expand their water treatment plant to reduce the nitrates and phosphates that were flowing into the bay and killing shellfish in the area. The mayor asked the students to study how the water changed following the completion of the water plant. “I’m a firm believer in learning from experience,” said teacher Bob Borowski, pictured with student representative Saad Amer. “But in order to do that, you need the technology to bring out into the field.”

IT Business Products : Hope for Children Gala: A Night to Remember

The 10th Anniversary Samsung Hope for Children Gala was a star-studded affair that raised $1.4 million and honored individuals and organizations that have made a difference in children’s lives.

This year’s Samsung Hope for Children Gala was held on June 7 at Cipriani Wall Street, in the heart of New York City’s financial district. Check out this day-in-the-life-of video and get a behind-the-scenes peek at John Legend’s Hope for Children Gala experience:

Here’s a look at some of the highlights of the evening:

A silent auction was held throughout the evening that helped raise $100,000. Volunteers circulated the room with Galaxy Tabs so guests could bid on items such as sports and music memorabilia, trips, jewelry and even cars. In addition to the auction, a social action campaign was started to help get the online community involved. Every tweet that included #Hope4Children was worth 25 cents, resulting in $25,000 raised for the evening.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Giants and Jets quarterbacks Eli Manning and Mark Sanchez, actress Demi Moore, NJ Housewives star Caroline Manzo, Sex and the City star Chris Noth were just some of the notable names to make an appearance. Above, Tim Baxter, President of the Consumer Business Division, Samsung Electronics America, and Jennifer Lopez introduce the 2011 Samsung Hope for Children Ambassador Award recipient.

Former President Bill Clinton was honored with the 2011 Samsung Hope for Children Ambassador Award for his continued efforts to improve the lives of children around the world. Here, he shows one of the works of art created by Haley Moss, the recipient of the Teen Hero Award.

Haley Moss, a 16-year-old-girl with high-functioning Autism and a sought-after artist, accepts her Teen Hero Award by thanking everyone who’s helped her along the way. Her art has been shown in several galleries throughout southern Florida and she’s been featured on CNN. Haley will also be the subject of an upcoming documentary on WXEL. In addition to being an artist, Haley is also an accomplished author who wrote Middle School—The Stuff Nobody Tells You About: A Teenage Girl with ASD Share Her Experiences.

Also honored were Teachers of the Year Ryan Sawtell from the Harlem Village Academies and Jasmin Candelario from Middle School 410 for their innovation in the classroom and their efforts to challenge and inspire their students.

Gala guests were entertained by a handful of performances throughout the night, including an amazing spotlight solo by Branford Marsalis to start the evening, a memorable duet by John Legend and Jason Mraz (pictured above) and a rousing performance by Harry Connick, Jr.

The night ended on a high note with Harry Connick, Jr. leading a traditional New Orleans second line through the Cipirani ballroom.

With 890 people in attendance, the gala exceeded expectations and surpassed this year’s goal by raising $1.4 million for the Samsung Hope for Children Charities, including the William J. Clinton Foundation, NOLA Musicians’ Village, The Boomer Esiason Foundation, The Dan Marino Foundation, The Maribel Foundation, The Jason Mraz Foundation, Show Me Campaign, The DNA Foundation, Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation, The Jason Taylor Foundation and Friends of Children’s Hospital Foundation.

IT Business Products : Green Report Card

With environmental concerns on everyone’s minds, purchasing computer equipment for your company now comes with more factors to consider. How much electricity does it use? Are any of the parts made of recycled goods? Can we recycle this easily? Basically, it boils down to efficiency.

In response, Samsung created the “Green Report Card,” a collection of all the “green” ratings our products have earned. At the bottom of each product page, you’ll find a Green Report Card that shows its eco-friendliness.

Here’s what to look for:

EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool)

A program run by the Green Electronics Council, EPEAT evaluates computer equipment based on environmental attributes like longevity, reduction or elimination of toxic materials, meeting ENERGY STAR standards and recyclability.

To be EPEAT-registered, products must meet 23 of IEEE 1680’s required criteria for a bronze rating. Products may obtain a silver or gold rating—with gold being the most environmentally friendly—by meeting any combination of the 28 optional criteria, such as packaging products in reusable materials, a reduction in the amount of plastic used in the product, and availability of replacement parts.

RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment)

A UK Enforcement Authority, RoHS ensures that new electronic equipment contains no more than a specified level of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. Although it is currently not possible to produce many computer components without such substances, the goal of RoHS is to substantially reduce the amount entering the waste stream.

Products are listed as “RoHS compliant” when they contain appropriately low levels of the restricted materials. If a product fails to comply with the European directive lowering the use of these materials, it’s listed as “RoHS non-compliant.”

ENERGY STAR

ENERGY STAR was created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to identify and promote energy-efficient products and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Computers and monitors were the first labeled products, but ENERGY STAR labels can now be found on more than 60 varieties of business and consumer electronics and appliances.

ENERGY STAR products are 10–25 percent more efficient than U.S. government standards, while offering superb performance and innovative features.

The vast majority of Samsung’s globally sold TVs, monitors, notebook PCs, printers and appliances meet the latest ENERGY STAR criteria.

Samsung created the Green Report Card to help you make smarter choices, yet it also reveals just how committed we are to providing products, solutions and technologies that benefit you and our planet.

IT Business Products : Our Eco-Innovation Story

Once upon a time, it seemed like being eco-friendly and enjoying cutting-edge design were mutually exclusive. That’s no longer true. Samsung is about Eco-innovation and that’s no fairy tale.

Our Products

Take our refrigerators, for instance, which combine ENERGY STAR efficiency with best-in-class features. And, Samsung has more ENERGY-STAR qualified TVs than any other consumer electronics brand.

Every product manufactured by Samsung is considered in relation to the environment. We take sustainability very seriously, and we’re not willing to skimp when it comes to our integrity. Samsung’s designers are always mindful of how our products affect the earth, all the way from the idea phase to the final product and beyond.

Here’s how our process works:

Stage one: The environmental impact of every Samsung product is assessed.

Stage two: Essential steps are taken to ensure eco-friendly practices during manufacturing.

Stage three: Sustainable materials are ordered, and partnerships with similar eco-minded suppliers are established.

Stage four: Manufacturing begins.

No aspect escapes scrutiny. From energy and materials to products and recycling, we make every effort to be as conscientious as possible.

Our facilities use renewable energy through our participation with the EPA’s Green Power Partnership program. And through our partnership with the EPA’s Smart Way Transport program, we use fuel-efficient transportation for delivery.

We’re always trying to reduce or eliminate hazardous materials in our manufacturing, such as using mercury-free and spray-paint free processes. And our innovative packaging includes soy ink and recycled materials. Some products are made from eco-friendly materials, such as corn-based bioplastics.

Best of all, Samsung offers no-hassle, no-fee recycling and product take-back centers around the country, which will gladly accept certain Samsung products at the end of their life cycle so their components can be reused for new products. And unlike some printer manufacturers’ return programs, ours means that when you return printer toner cartridges, they are never incinerated or sent to landfills. For a complete list of drop-off locations, and to learn more about our respected recycling partners and standards, please visit Samsung Recycling Direct.

Are you interested in Samsung’s eco-innovation within the context of specific products?

Samsung’s LED TVs do not use mercury in the production process, or spray paint in the manufacturing process. It also offers a power indicator menu and an optimized energy savings mode. And because these TVs are thinner, less material is required to manufacture them. Smaller packaging allows for more sets to be shipped, and less fuel to be consumed. The Samsung LED TV is an outstanding set with stunning picture quality, but one that consumes less than 60 percent of the energy used by conventional LCD sets. It’s no wonder that the Samsung 6000 Series was honored with an Eco Design Award in the 2009 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards.

The latest Samsung Plasma TVs feature new circuitry and panel techniques that meet the newest ENERGY STAR v3.0 requirements, and are produced entirely with lead-free materials.

The Reclaim Mobile Phone is utterly groundbreaking. Not only does it come with an ENERGY STAR-qualified charger, but 40 percent of the phone’s shell is made from bioplastic material. Eighty percent of the total materials are recyclable. And the packaging is made with 70 percent recycled material, and printed with soy ink.

Samsung’s WF448 front-loading washer line is the world’s first 4.5 cubic foot front-loading washers, and a gentler way to keep clothes clean while reducing environmental impact. (The line earned an Eco Design Award from the 2009 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards.) With such a large capacity, the total number of loads run during the life of the product is potentially reduced for lowered water and power use. This extraordinary line boasts the ENERGY STAR-based CEE Tier 3 ranking (the highest available), and features Samsung’s SilverCare™ cycle option, which saves 92 percent on energy when compared to hot water sanitization.

If, like so many people, you spend much of your time in front of a computer monitor, you might like a sleek, elegant, energy-saving Samsung LED monitor, which is EPEAT gold-rated, TCO 5.0 certified, and ENERGY STAR compliant. Samsung’s eco-innovative model uses up to 40 percent less energy compared with conventional LCD monitors. No mercury is used in the LED production process.

We extend “green” thinking even down to memory chips. Our DDR3 Memory is a server memory chip that’s super fast but uses less energy. Its technology provides twice the bandwidth of DDR2, yet it can attain an astonishing 73 percent power savings at the module level, and 38 percent at the system level when compared with an equivalent system using DDR2 technology.

Those are just a few examples of Samsung’s innovative thinking when it comes to our impact on natural resources. If we sound remotely boastful, that’s because we’re awfully proud of our eco-friendly record. And we’re working hard every day to make it even better.

IT Business Products : What are Rear Wireless Speakers?

Until now, wireless has never been an option for those with high home-entertainment standards. Speaker cable was required to achieve maximum audio quality, no matter how complicated the wiring or unsightly the cables. Enter rear wireless speakers—the choice is no longer between form and function; now you can have both.

Surround Yourself

The beauty of modern home entertainment is the ability to recreate the theater experience at home. Essential to achieving that is the extra dimension that rear speakers provide. They create a sense of space that lets you know where a sound is coming from.

Originally the exclusive domain of the technophile, rear speakers have evolved from luxury to necessity. Though their effects can be subtle, they are in many ways the key to a truly outstanding home audio system.

Free Yourself

The days of running speaker wires underneath the rug or underneath the floor are over. No more complicated connections. Once you find placement for your rear wireless receiver in the back of the room, all you’ll need is a simple speaker wire from that rear receiver to the rear speakers. Wireless speakers give you the freedom to sculpt sound however you wish, adjusting speaker placement for optimal acoustics.

IT Business Products : The Art of Reheating in a Microwave

There are hundreds of culinary creations you can make in a microwave. But let’s face it, for most of us the microwave is all about reheating. That being said, after trying to ingest cardboard pizza, petrified potatoes and soggy croissants, we know there’s a big difference between reheating leftovers and revitalizing them.

Retaining Moisture is Key

Although there are plenty of culinary creations you can make with a microwave, for most of us the microwave is all about reheating. The secret to reviving food in a microwave is moisture. A damp paper towel is an easy way to help foods retain water. Place one over a leftover croissant, burger or burrito, and you’ll be surprised at how much better your food tastes.

Revitalizing Pizza and Sandwiches

Of course, how you reheat something depends on what you’re eating. For pizza, try running the crust under the kitchen tap, or, using a microwavable dish, lay the pizza on a short stack of paper towels. Will your slice be crispy and crusty? Probably not, but it won’t taste like cardboard, either. In fact, sandwiches can benefit for this method as well. A few drops of sprinkled water will make a roll or a slice of bread fluffy rather than soggy.

Invigorating Noodles and Rice

Chinese or Mexican food can be tricky. One tip is to heat the rice separately and add a bit of water before you microwave it. As for a chicken dish—like Kung Pao Chicken or Arroz con Pollo—you’ll want to keep an eye on it, stirring every minute or two.

Even coffee can be refreshed in the microwave with water. If it’s been sitting at room temperature for a while, it’s probably bitter. Add a splash of water to cut the bitterness and pop it in the microwave—just be sure it never comes to a boil.

A good rule of thumb to ensure that you won’t overcook leftovers is the “half-and-half” rule: half the power and half the time. Adjust the temperature setting by half; and halfway through cooking, flip, stir, or rearrange your food, so it will cook more evenly.

Containers Matter, Too

Just because your food was delivered in it, doesn’t mean it can go in the microwave. Never reheat food in metal or aluminum foil, and recent health studies have advised against heating plastic containers or plastic wrap. However, a glass plate is always a safe bet.

Try these tips and tricks and you’ll be surprised at how much better your food—or coffee—tastes.
