Recommended Posts

“Education is not a privilege; it is a birth right,” says former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

But for millions of children around the world, this simply isn’t the case. Educational technology is hard to come by in some of the world’s poorest regions and this is amplified during this time of distance learning. Technology can have an overwhelming impact on learning and 87 percent of teachers and head teachers believe it has a positive influence on a student’s ability to learn.*

So in the small French village of Cambounet-Sur-le-Sor, LG and the local football team, FC Cambounet, are trying to make a difference through their humanitarian project, Education for Kilimanjaro, with the aim of getting children in Africa a better education with better technology. After claiming victory in the 2019 Tarn Cup, FC Cambounet footballers took their well-earned trophy across five continents, to the neediest people on their journeys. Donated equipment included computers, notebooks, books, pens and games, among others.

The champion footballers wanted to leverage their win by sharing their passion for football and helping locals they met during their world tour, a project that links their passion to their value of sharing. For example, on their first trip, the team donated items of basic necessities and served soup on Christmas to children in the favelas of Brazil.

Last month, the team made its way to Tanzania in east Africa. In collaboration with organizations Education for Kilimanjaro and Human’ISA XX, the group arranged a visit to an elementary school in the village of Mbokomu, near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak on the African continent in the northern part of Tanzania. Here, the footballers donated educational, technological and sporting equipment, among the donated educational equipment being LG’s most advanced CineBeam LED projector so the students of Mbokomu could benefit from the same technology used in the best schools in France.

“Our trip was a resounding success, helping the children of Tanzania is something we’ll never forget,” said teammate Pierre Trantoul. “Thanks to LG donating one of its advanced projectors, we were able to support a class of underprivileged students by making the learning process so much more fun and interesting.”

The entire journey from the south of France to the east African nation was documented by France’s biggest television channel, TF1, for its program Grands Reportages which reports on the remarkable exploits of French citizens around the world. But the story doesn’t end there, as this journey was just one of many to come for both a group of champion athletes and the LG team in France, who are always in search of ways to make lives better through technology and innovation.

      From newly designed street wear, injections of color and wearable art, it was clearly out with the old and in with the new at Australia’s highly anticipated fashion event of the year last month. Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW) provided Australian designers with the opportunity to launch their latest fashion lines to influential industry members and technology was at the forefront of this year’s longstanding fashion event, enhancing show formats and experiences both on the runway and behind the scenes.

      And who better than LG Electronics in Australia to educate guests about technological advancements in garment care? So it made perfect sense for LG to team up with AAFW as the official laundry appliance partner at this year’s event.
      Not only did LG Electronics get to introduce the large capacity LG Styler and LG WashTower to the Australian market for the first time, the sponsorship also provided an opportunity to connect with new consumer segments and collaborate with influential fashion industry personalities.

      Right in the heart of the central hall at AAFW where some of Australia’s most iconic designers and personalities wandered in between shows, LG Electronics had its brand activation set up with its Styler and WashTower products. The space known as the LG Refresh Zone mimicked the design of a luxury walk-in wardrobe. Guests had the opportunity to experience the unique benefits of the LG Styler, whereby they could refresh their coats, jackets and other garments by checking them in between shows.
      Adhering to COVID-19 local government requirements and to ensure the safety of all attendees at AAFW and those who entered the LG Refresh Zone, guests were required to check-in using the Service NSW app and have their temperatures checked upon entry. Guests were furthermore encouraged to wear face masks during the shows and whilst visiting the LG Refresh Zone. At the same time, capacity was monitored and hand sanitizer was readily available throughout the venue.

      The activation saw several high-profile guests stop by, including well-known bohemian-inspired Australian fashion designer, Camilla Franks. In addition, LG Electronics partnered with style icon and E! Online Australia host, Tammy White, who utilized her strong social presence to create content around “a week in the life of AAFW with the LG Styler”. This partnership created online traction and buzz about the new LG Styler and the company’s affiliation with AAFW.
      During the same week, LG Electronics Australia collaborated with sought-after Australian designer to the stars, Michael Lo Sordo, whose looks were previously worn by Kourtney Kardashian, Sarah Hellen, Solange Knowles and Jeffree Star, to launch his Resort ‘22 collection.

      As a leading sponsor of Michael’s exclusive and intimate dinner and presentation, One Night in Paris, the LG Styler was used backstage to refresh his new line made of textures and fabrications including wools, cottons, leathers and silks. Simultaneously, LG gram laptops were integrated into the presentation to demonstrate how seamlessly the device could integrate with modern luxury designs as an accessory.

      Michael Lo Sordo’s Resort ’22 collection represents a fusion of casual glamour and modernity that can be worn from day to night. The LG gram range was integrated effortlessly in Michael’s presentation, as the laptop boasts the same flexibility to suit a range of lifestyles, delivering a simple yet stylish design whilst enhancing productivity.

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards 
      Alizadeh

      Hi,
      Is there an app or a way to enhanced safety mode that I can prevent children from using TV after midnight? 
      I think it's a strong need for many parents.
