Motorcycle Designer Does Not Support Self-Driving Motorcycles

Piaggio is known as the official distributor of Aprilia motorcycles in the market and its designer, Miguel Angel Galluzzi, believes that self-driving motorcycles will not be possible in the future. Galluzzi was a graduate of Art Center College of Design and he is the head of Advanced Design Center of the Piaggio Group based in Pasadena. He, on the other hand, believes that two-wheel vehicles should be powered by solar energy in the future thus the owners will not depend on using fossil fuels alone.

Galluzzi is a native of Argentinia and graduated from Art Center with the Transportation Design course in 1986. He is currently focused on larger issues such as regaining the public’s imagination when it comes to motorcycle. These two-wheeled vehicles have always been a symbol of fun as well as contemporary virtues including sustainability, future-facing as well as cost-effectiveness.

It was in 1993 when he designed the Ducati Monster which was known to be the original version of the naked bike. This is now the foundation of many minimalist designs in the automotive industry. It also set the standard for the performance of bikes with good aesthetic value.

Up until this day, custom motorcycle builders prefer to use the Monster as their platform because of the simple elements included in it. Ever since the release, the Ducati Monsters have been made into 300,000 different variations based on the original concept that was created by Galluzzi.

In his most recent interview, Galluzzi said that he does not agree with the concept of creating self-driving motorcycles. He believes that motorcycles represent romance as well as passion. This is the main reason why youth of today’s generation are buying vintage bikes because they wanted to be in touch with something they have lost. This is the same principles that govern those who still buy vinyl at this age.

Galluzzi said that he envisions a future where two-wheeled vehicles such as Aprilia motorcycles will be using alternative energy. He wanted a future where his motorcycles will be able to use the power harnessed from the sun and ride the same vehicle to work where he can recharge it and use it again when he goes home.

Co-Working Space Will Remain An Industry

There is a growing trend for co-working space nowadays and its popularity went over the roof overnight. This is an ideal option for entrepreneurs that are just taking baby steps in their business ventures. It quite common to see co working space in Bangkok and the world is starting to get used to the concept. Startups can easily grow their business with the help of co-working spaces.

Basically, a co-working space is one dedicated to serve as a communal working area for freelances, small teams under corporations or businesses and entrepreneurs. The very first co-working space in the world was introduced by Brad Neuberg who is an entrepreneur in San Francisco. He created the concept that will complement the independence provided by freelancing while mimicking the experience in an office space through structure and sense of community. Neuberg was also responsible for the ‘co-working’ term we use nowadays.

In a span of a few years, the trend has been picked up all over the world which resulted to the creation of more than 10,000 co-working spaces in different countries. Co-working offices are now a common concept to many because of the rise of entrepreneurs and business owners that are willing to take risks.

The cities of Abuja, Port Harcourt and Lagos in Nigeria are witnesses to the growing number of co-working offices in the country. It has become a phenomenon because of the various types offered depending on the comfort and facilities provided by each space. These are all designed to be a community for freelancers and a place for startups to take their baby steps.

Business owners recognize the fact that they will not be able to function without an office space. This is a challenge for those starting out with limited budget or with no budget at all. majority of the co-working space can be rented for affordable rates and it comes with basic access much like an office including reception services, conference spaces, audio and video systems and Wi-fi/Internet connection. Aside from these, having a co working space in Bangkok means a business will have a legitimate mailing address and a dedicated space that serves as a kitchen or break room.

4 Time Management Strategies For Managers And Entrepreneurs

Oftentimes, people have a lot of things to do in mind but they end up doing less or nothing at all because of poor time management. Successful businessmen and entrepreneurs have one thing in common, they have effective time management strategies and with that, they accomplish more in a day and achieve higher goals. Here are some of the most effective time management methods adhered by successful people.

Come up with daily rituals

Having rituals signals the brain that your day is starting or it is already ending. Rituals such as drinking a glass of water when you wake up at 6 in the morning or brushing your teeth at night are excellent brain signals. This also strengthens your sense of involuntary discipline since your body automatically responds to stimuli such as brushing your teeth or making your bed the moment you wake up.

Organize your tasks for the day

Before you start with the day, think about the things that you need to do for the day. You can do it mentally or note it down in your organizer. List down everything that you need to do whether personal, professional or business in nature and allocate time for every activity. Make sure that you follow your time allocation for every activity.

Use electronic calendars with reminders

One of the effective time management strategies is using electronic calendars. Sync your electronic calendar to your desktop in the office, mobile phone, laptop and other electronic gadgets so you will remain reminded no matter where you are or what you do. Turn your reminder on so you would know when to shift to another task and when to stop.

Do not multi-task

While there are those who are comfortable with multi-tasking, most people would find it hard to focus with so many things in mind waiting to be done. One working time management strategies is to focus on small and manageable tasks that make up a larger task. Break down major tasks and work on them smaller tasks one activity at a time with specific time allocation.

Tick-Tock At SIHH 2017: Brands Focus On Entry-Level And For-Women Designs

The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie this 2017 was the largest instance of the event to date, with the Geneva watch fair opening its doors to 17 big-brand main exhibitors, with the Carré des Horlogers section being populated by 13 independent exhibitors.

The centrepiece of the fair was the Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600, a Vacheron Constantin collection made from scratch featuring 23 pieces, all made by a single master watchmaker.

The recent issues with the retail market over the past 2 years didn’t seem to affect the SIHH 2017, with a fairly upbeat climate. The SIHH’s exhibitors felt the effects though, subtly stated in their exhibits; one of many featuring an entry-level novelty, and another showing a rose gold watch for ladies. The market was shifting.

Noel Wong, deputy CEO for Elegant Watches, stated that the market was now more realistic in its goals, but still quite ambitious. He says that the economic downturn had led to notable changes in the market, and companies are fighting to seize what new advantages they can get, which is why new materials are being shown off, alongside watch designs made for women, with independently-branded watches being displayed not far from an exhibit with a rose gold watch for ladies. The pieces shown in the SIHH this year were more sober than most, but still not lacking for innovation.

Companies like Jaeger-LeCoultre showed off their new designs designed to appeal to feminine sensibilities, showing the shift in focus to the women’s watches market, whilst some companies opted for a softer approach, offering their classic masculine designs with more feminine materials and colors.

Notably, the IWC Schaffhausen, with its motto of ‘Engineered for Men’, revealed two models from its Da Vinci collection for women: the Da Vinci Automatic 36 and the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36.

More independent brands have also been welcomed into the SIHH’s display halls, which, up until last year, were mostly populated with brands under the Richemont Group, with the occasional exhibit from Audemars Piguet, Richard Mille and Parmigiani Fleurier. Newcomer Ulysse Nardin, along with five new independents appeared at the event, and, in spite of some prior protests subtly made by a few executives, were welcomed quite well.

The SIHH has recently become more organized in its operations, which will allow the independent watchmakers better exposure from the media, as well as more contact with the larger names in the industry.

The presence of both big names and leading independents in the SIHH was nothing if not beneficial for retailers, who are coming into contact with customers who are more open to more unusual pieces, and, consequently, less orthodox brands.
