    GUANGZHOU, China, Nov 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Masha Ma, a well-known Chinese fashion designer who has debuted her collections at Paris Fashion Week for each of the last ten years, has unveiled her latest collection at this year's fashion event in Paris by partnering with Chinese cosmetics brand Perfect Diary, bringing more possibilities for personal expression to today's modern woman. The event marks the second time that Perfect Diary has taken part in a global fashion show on the heels of its participation in the Milan Fashion Show.Perfect Diary's cosmetic products showcased backstage at Masha Ma's show

    The MASHAMA 2019 Spring/Summer show, "Aceso's Practice", was held around the theme of the self-determination of female identities, in reflection of how modern women today have the power to define and reshape themselves.

    Masha Ma's collection showcased at this year's Paris Fashion Week utilizes cascading polished fabrics and reconstructed leather lace as well as colorful serpentine and floral patterns, while highlighting the female form via streamlined cutting and neat silhouette design. All of these design elements combine to showcase a modern woman's innermost emotions enveloped by a hard, protective shell.

    In addition, Masha Ma, in partnership with Perfect Diary, has introduced a co-branded package at the fashion show that consists of dreamy matte lip glosses in three selected colors, as part of her efforts to create the ultimate matte lip makeup kit for supermodels and assume a leadership role in the lip product market.

    The gift package uses marine blue as its basic color and features undulating and swaying flowers in a design inspired by the science fiction film Annihilation, reflecting modern women's embracing of colors and enjoying life by constructing multiple identities on their own.

    The close partnership between Perfect Diary and Masha Ma is the perfect embodiment of "Women are not born, but formed", the core theme of the MASHAMA 2019 Spring/Summer show.

    Perfect Diary, a brand established in 2016 by Guangzhou Yatsen C-commerce Company Limited, develops cosmetics, including makeup foundation, eye makeup and makeup remover.

    The young and fashionable Chinese cosmetics brand is committed to developing a series of high quality and elaborately designed cosmetic products for Chinese women, with a view to encouraging the young generation to enhance themselves by pushing boundaries and exploring more possibilities in life. 

    This philosophy is in line with Masha Ma's design concept of highlighting the female persona through delicate craftsmanship and structured profiles.

    KEMP, Texas, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics LLC, Industrial lighting expert, has released a new explosion proof LED forklift zone light set that consists of three, 27-watt lights, ideal for hazardous locations such as warehouses and delivery bays. This set produces 2,350 lumens of intense blue light per unit to indicate the pathway of the forklift, warning pedestrians and other vehicles of ongoing operation.The EXHL-TRN-ZN-LE9-FKLT-BLU-KT.3X from Larson Electronics is a set of three, 27-watt explosion proof LED forklift zone lights which produces 2,350 lumens of intense blue light each, offering real-time notification to nearby pedestrians and works of ongoing forklift operation. Standard forklift warning systems have strobe lights that can hinder operator visibility and/or audible alarms which can irritate workers and pedestrians who must listen to the constant beeping. The EXHL-TRN-ZN-LE9-FKLT-BLU-KT.3X addresses both issues. At a height of 15 feet, the LED lamps each provide a 30` x 1.5` beam configuration and are mounted to the forklift via trunnion brackets.

    The EXHL-TRN-ZN-LE9-FKLT-BLU-KT.3X is suitable for ATEX/IECEX rated environments, as well as Class I Division 1 and 2; Class I Zones 1 and 2; Class II Division 1 and 2; and Class III work sites. This set is also NEMA Type 4X rated and supports IP66 ratings. Operating on 10-100V DC, these LED pedestrian safety lights are compatible with a range of standard forklift voltages, including 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V.

    Each light is constructed of copper-free aluminum and feature a tempered soda lime glass lens with an electrostatically applied gray powder epoxy/polyester finish. Forklifts can incorporate this explosion proof LED light set at the front, back or both ends of the forklift body for comprehensive illuminative safety.

    “Compared to laser safety lights, this explosion proof zone light set offers wider illumination for enhanced visibility,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “Also, using blue steady burn LEDs eliminates distracting strobing lights and constant alarms, while still efficiently notifying workers and pedestrians of the ongoing forklift operation.”

    *About Larson Electronics LLC: *Larson Electronics LLC is a manufacturer of industrial lighting equipment and accessories. The company offers an extensive catalog of industry-grade lighting and power distribution products for the following sectors: manufacturing, construction, food processing, oil and gas, military, marine and automobile.

    SJS Executives is part of the inaugural class of HIRE Vets Medallion Program winners

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (PRWEB) November 15, 2018

    SJS Executives, LLC (SJS), a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in facilities maintenance and sustainment services for military and federal agencies, won an inaugural 2018 Platinum HIRE Vets Medallion Program Demonstration Award from the US Department of Labor in recognition of its veteran hiring practices and the career development options it offers to formerly active servicemembers.

    This award acknowledges that 25% of SJS's workforce is composed of veterans and SJS actively considers veterans for employment opportunities within every echelon and division of the business. For example, almost every employee in its J & J Powder Coating division is a veteran.

    "Everyone at SJS is tremendously proud and excited to receive this honor from the Department of Labor," says Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and majority owner Gino Gonzalez. "Our company has a culture of service and ethics that is informed by the military experience of our employees, and our customers ultimately benefit from that, because we are conscientious about providing reliable, trustworthy, quality solutions to support our customers' missions."

    The Department of Labor took into account SJS's annual charitable giving toward non-profit foundations that assist service disabled veterans with obtaining specialty support services, including EQUI-VETS of Virginia Beach, which uses equine therapy to help individuals healing from combat and service-related anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress.

    SJS is 100% veteran owned. Gino Gonzalez is a service disabled veteran of the United States Navy who served aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). Roger M. LaPlante, co-owner and Chief of Operations (COO), is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps (USMC) who specialized in avionics systems on F-4 Phantom jets.

    SJS appreciates the special skills and talents its veteran employees bring to the company as a result of their military service, including their leadership and management acumen, and continuously seeks additional veteran job candidates for its more than 250 positions across 13 states.

    On the night of November 26, 2008, a bullet scraped Anil Nirmale's fingers, near Metro Cinema, Marine Lines. Nirmale, who worked for a television channel and was stationed on duty there, was engrossed in covering Ajmal Kasab's crazy gun-laced run. Ten years later, Nirmale can still feel the swoosh of the bullet as it ripped off the flesh from his palm. "I can even hear it all, the fear is still there," he told DNA, when this correspondent met him on Thursday.

    For Nirmale, surviving Kasab's wrath was like rebirth. "I thought I was dead then," he said.

    Nirmale had covered many extraordinary events as a cameraman earlier — from floods to bomb blasts and riots — but none came close to what this assignment entailed. In fact, on November 26, Nirmale had already packed for the day and reached his residence. "I was asked to return to duty and cover what seemed like a gang-war shootout then. For a long time, it was not clear what was really happening that evening," Nirmale recalled.

    The cameraman reached Metro at about 10.30 pm. He remembers seeing police vans everywhere and could hear gunshots. "This was unusual because at that time, it is usually a peaceful spot. "I saw a police jeep packed with police officials rushing towards CSMT station. We — as in all the media people standing there — were told to squat and secure ourselves. It was almost midnight when I saw the same jeep coming from the opposite direction this time and realised that something was wrong," recounts Nirmale.

    Sensing that there would be something for him to shoot, Nirmale took aim. "Terrorist Ismail was driving this police jeep and Kasab was firing from it. He fired a slew of bullets in our direction and one went through three fingers of my right hand. My camera fell and a terrible numbing sensation gripped my entire right limb. That is my last memory of that day."

    He was later operated on at JJ Hospital and for once, he who covers news himself became the news. "My family was shocked to see me on TV and my mother refused to believe I was okay till she saw me in person," smiles Nirmale. While recovery since has been difficult, Nirmale shrugs and says, "Life has to go on."

    MONACO, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safe Bulkers, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: SB), an international provider of marine drybulk transportation services, announced today that the Company has accepted an offer letter to refinance a loan facility of $51.4 million secured by 4 vessels, part of which would expire in 2022, by extending the relevant tenor by 2 years and pushing back the balloon payments to 2024, concluding the Company’s refinancing actions.Upon completion of all loan documentation the repayment schedule of the Company on a pro-forma basis is presented in Table 1, in comparison with the repayment schedule as of September 30, 2018.

    Pro-forma schedule *12.5* *56.0* *62.9* *81.5* *83.1* *72.3* *193.8* *32.9* *1.3* *14.4* *610.7*
    Schedule as of
    September 30, 2018 *2.4* *64.5* *70.2* *133.7* *216.2* *19.5* *19.1* *14.1* *1.3* *14.4* *555.4*
                           

    As of September 30, 2018, the total debt^1 of $555.4 million was secured by 37 vessels, whereas following the refinancing the total debt on a pro-forma basis is $610.7 million secured by 39 vessels. The average margin^2 following the refinancing is expected to be 211bps.

    The refinanced facilities contain financial covenants in line with the existing loan and credit facilities of the Company.

    Dr. Loukas Barmparis, President of the Company, said: “Having concluded the refinancing of our debt in close cooperation with our lenders, we believe that we have a comfortable debt profile which provides for one of the lowest cash break-even points in our industry for the following five years. Our consolidated leverage^3 was 55% for an 8.1 year average-aged fleet as of the end of the third quarter 2018. The additional liquidity will provide financial flexibility to us and is expected to be used for financing our environmental investments including scrubbers and ballast water treatment systems and for general corporate purposes including acquisitions.”

    _____________________________________
    ^1 Total debt includes deferred financing costs.
    ^2 Excludes sale and lease back agreements
    ^3 Consolidated leverage is a non-GAAP measure and represents total consolidated liabilities divided by total consolidated assets. Total consolidated assets are based on the market value of all vessels (before BWTS and scrubber installation), owned or leased on a finance lease taking into account their employment, and the book value of all other assets.
