Goodyear Launches the Wrangler TripleMax Tire for Mid-Size SUV Range in Malaysia

 Market-Back Innovation (From left) Ben Hoge, Managing Director, Goodyear Malaysia Berhad, Andy Cooper, Managing Director of Goodyear ASEAN; Ronnie Dhaeze, Construction Development Engineer, Goodyear Innovation Centre, Luxembourg; introduced the all new Wrangler TripleMax – Goodyear’s new range of SUV tire made with current consumer and market demands in mind.

Last week, Goodyear launched its latest high performance tire, the Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax, in Malaysia. Designed for mid-size SUVs, the Wrangler TripleMax delivers Superior Braking Performance1, Shorter Wet Braking and Road Hazard Resistant features, offering a safer and more fun driving experience with the family.

The middle SUV segment is clearly a growing market, and is expected to increase with a compound annual growth rate of more than 12% from 2012 to 20202. This is evident as sales of SUVs in Malaysia grew 21.3% per cent YTD in June 20163. In order to meet the growing demand, Goodyear will continue to be committed to innovate and offer high performance products to our consumers.

With consumer-driven needs at the center of its tire innovations, the new Wrangler TripleMax provides peace-of-mind when driving, keeping families safer across road conditions. Goodyear developed the Wrangler TripleMax with an improved version of its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology®, along with its innovative tread design, optimized carcass and high grip compound, delivers shorter wet braking performance.

Superior Braking Performance, the Wrangler TripleMax comes with large blocks and biting edges, providing an increased road contact for better braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.

“Goodyear is known for creating a culture of safety innovations that stay ahead of the competition. The unpredictable weather and road conditions in Malaysia calls for a tire that delivers on all fronts and the new Wrangler TripleMax delivers Goodyear’s continued brand promise for safer and more enjoyable rides for drivers and their families,” said Ben Hoge, Managing Director, Goodyear Malaysia.

“As road trips become a more prominent activity among Malaysian families, it is important to note that the tire which connects their vehicle to the road can provide peace of mind and safety as the family creates memories together. The Wrangler TripleMax was developed with this in mind, offering Malaysians – who share a love for driving – a chance to go further and create more meaningful road trip stories together”, Hoge added.

The launched was held at ex8, Subang Jaya, you can find more photos on album of my Facebook. Click on the link to view the photos.
Shorter Wet Braking, More Fun Driving : Designed with Goodyear proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology®, an innovation made with enhanced ESBR compound that gives the Wrangler TripleMax an edge to handle wet roads.
 Its proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology® features a host of features that deliver superior braking performance1. The tread and cavity design of the new Wrangler TripleMax with its larger surface area contact patch, ensures an enhanced braking ability through biting edges and large block elements.

HYDROGRIP Technology® Reduces Braking Distances on Wet Roads

Goodyear’s HYDROGRIP Technology® provides an innovative new tread compound, maximizing control via a larger surface area contact patch, and translating to more rubber contact on the road. It improves braking ability by way of biting edges with large block elements. The tires are also equipped with a wide face and optimized cavity with 5 Rib Tread matching which concentrates pressure distribution on key block elements during braking. This also provides the tires a higher ESBR with optimized polymer blend, giving the tires better grip and a shorter braking distance on wet roads. All of these combined together offers a more comfortable ride.

The proprietary HYDROGRIP Technology® is a combination of three elements:

1. Superior Braking Performance1: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with large blocks and a high number of biting edges to increase contact to road asperity. This delivers better braking and grip on wet and dry roads.

2. Wet Performance: The HydroGrip Technology used for the Wrangler TripleMax, is made with enhanced ESBR compound for multipurpose performances to improve braking and grip on both wet and dry roads.

3. Road Hazard Resistant: The Wrangler TripleMax designed with rim flange protector, provides more material on the sidewall to protect the rim and tire against road hazards.

Availability and Sizes

Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax is the tire to turn to for a safer and fun driving experience. For the Malaysian market, Goodyear Malaysia is offering 16", 17" and 18" rim diameter variants, with the subsequent sizes being added to the range in due time.

The Goodyear Wrangler TripleMax tire retails from RM443.72 to RM675.22 inclusive of GST, depending on different sizes. Consumers can now purchase the Wrangler TripleMax tires at Goodyear Autocare and Servitekar outlets, as well as authorized Goodyear dealers nationwide.

Kaspersky Lab launches Kaspersky Interent Security

 Kaspersky Lab presented the latest version of its flagship security solution Kaspersky Internet Security 2017. The solution gives users additional opportunities to manage their internet protection and to ensure their data safety.

Kaspersky Internet Security Multi Devise is the security solution for the whole family; it protects Windows, Mac, and Android users against malware, dangerous sites, online tracking, fraud and money theft.

The lack of cyber-savviness among Malaysians coupled with their high usage of unprotected non-PC/non-desktop devices is cause for concern in view of the growth of cyber threats globally. In the second quarter of 2016 alone, Kaspersky Lab solutions detected and repelled over 171 million malicious attacks from online resources, globally.

Speech by Sylvia Ng, General Mnager - SEA, Kaspersky Lab, SEA
 According to Sylvia Ng, General Manager - SEA, Kaspersky Lab, the company expects the consumer reaction to the latest products to be positively strong with the addition of more cutting edge features and the emphasis on providing even better security and value across all device platforms to consumers.

This year, Kaspersky Internet Security for Windows has integrated several new functions. Now users can protect their data from being intercepted during an unsafe Internet connection with the help of Secure Connection. In addition, they can patch potential "holes" in their device security with Software Updater and Software Cleaner.

"At Kaspersky Lab we believe that IT security about the effectiveness of a security solution that suits the usage patterns of consumers, and weighed against their cyber-savviness. Cyber savvy people are more alert to possible threats, and they also ready to apply the latest technological achievements to protect what is most important for them - whether that's personal information, files, privacy, their devices or peace of mind for their family members. We are striving to offer user these possibilities with each new version of our solutions", commented Sylvia.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2017, the solution can protect up to five devices with one simple easy to manage license. It is highly suited to Malaysian consumer digital landscape, and there is a clear need of it.

"Kaspersky Internet Security 2017 incorporates a range of new and improved technologies to protect what matters most to a user regardless of the devices they use, be it on PC, Mac or Android devices," added Slyvia.
product presentation by Nicole Woo, Territory Channel Manager, Kaspersky Lab, Malaysia.
 Secure Connection which allows users to connect to Internet safely, by encrypting all data sent and receive through the network. This is especially important when performing financial operations, authorization on sites, or transferring confidential information, as in these cases traffic interception by a stranger could cause users serious (for example, financial) loses.

The Kaspersky Lab protection component, Secure Connection, can be launched from the main window of Kaspersky Internet Security. It can also be activated automatically when the device is connected to public Wi-Fi or the user is inputting confidential information online, such as on banking websites, online stores, payment systems, email, social networks, etc.

Within the security product's license, users have 200 MB of encrypted traffic at their daily disposal, and for an additional monthly or annual fee they can get an unlimited volume of traffic.

Software Updater is one of the common methods of malware penetrating the computer is the use of errors (so-called vulnerabilities) in the programs installed in it. Developers regularly update their products, however not all users regularly update these on their devices. Software Updater can automatically find the applications that need to be updated and, if the user agrees, install the latest versions from vendor sites on their computer. The user can also request the date of an application manually or add any of them to the list of applications that should not be updated (for example, if the older version is required).

Software Cleaner will inform users of a program if it has been installed without their awareness or clear consent (for example, as additional software during the installation of another application), of it slows down the user's device, provides incomplete/incorrect information about its functions, operates in the background mode, shows banners and messages without permission (e.g. advertising), or it is rarely used.  Upon receipt of a report from Software Cleaner, the user can either remove or leave the application in question.

In addition to the new functions, Kaspersky Internet Security has been enhanced with improved advanced technologies such as the multi-level protection of financial transactions (with Safe Money), the prevention of the installation of unwanted applications (with Application Manager, part of the former Change Control feature) and the blocking of advertising banners in the browser (with Anti-Banner).

A Woman's Journey Through Health with menarini

Last Sunday morning, I attended a workshop it is related to A Woman's Journey Through Health. It's interesting as I didn't know much of the contraceptive pills and menopause. This is one stop workshop with various topics that relates to women's from all walks of life, making women feel good about themselves, empowering them to take control of their lives with adequate knowledge, finding happiness and always feel young at heart. This workshop suitable for woman from age 28 to 45 years old. One of the healthy activities in the morning include of cycling. 

Family planning is important as at the workshop today get to know family that have 11 children because they don't know of importance of family planning. All tickets sales to the worskhop RM25 each will be donated to Ragunathan family.

Women's hormonal changes from her wonder years through golden years, talked by Dr. Ho Choon Moy, O&G Specialist.

Unplanned pregnancy with more than 50% of pregnancies worldwide are unplanned, they are more than a half in Asia. Sad to know half ended in abortion, this may reflect the poor contraceptive knowledge. Today there's short term contraceptives and long term contraceptives to choose from for the woman and man. There are oral contraceptive pills which is not just for family planning, but has other benefits like regulating women's hormones which could reduce some health issues. Oral contraceptive pill has low dose vs ultralow dose it's important to seek your doctor advice on which is suitable for you. Each year in the worldwide trends in contraception usage, contraception prevents 188 million unplanned pregnancies. It results in 122 millions few abortions. Proper timing and spacing of pregnancies & births reduce pregnancy-related health complications in women. This results in a lower infant mortality rate. Do you know about the sexual transmitted infections? They are Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Herpes Simplex, Syphillis, Genital warts, HPV ( Human Papilloma Virus), HIV (Human Imunodefiency Virus). This is why 'Double-Dutch' approach to contraception gives the best protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

I am glad that I attended this workshop as it's not only educate public on certain disease and health issues related also get to know about oral contraceptive and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) drugs for menopausal women.

Talking of menopause, do you know what it is? It is the final menstrual period of a woman. Post-menopause is 1 year after the last menstrual period. Peri-menopause begins anytime from 40 years old onwards until the beginning of post-menopause. Menopause is a natural and inevitable event that happens on average at age 51 years. I recalled this happened to my mom when she was in her late 40s.
What are the symptoms of menopause?
Hot Flushes
  • Nearly 75% of women entering perimenopause experience hot flushes
  • Intense heat: 30 secs - few minutes; followed by sweating, palpitations, anxiety.
  • Major cause of sleep disturbance.

Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM) is a term that refers to the changes at the vulva, vagina, urethra and bladder that happen to women after menopause. The term GSM came about in 2013 when experts from the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health (ISSWSH) and the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) got together to discuss the best way to describe the symptoms at the private parts of menopausal women so that patients can feel more comfortable seeking medical attention for their problem instead of suffering in silence.

GSM is not one single problem but a set of different problems happening at the same anatomical area, hence the treatment will vary according to woman's individual needs. Not all treatments require medication; some may be lifestyle changes or topical applications. Generally, treatment can consists of water-based lubricants, moisturisers, low-dose hormone therapy, local estrogen creams, suppositories or tablets.

Menopause is a new beginning or the beginning of the end? It's important to have a healthy lifestyle which consists of diet and exercise. Weight gain after menopause is caused by lifestyle factors. Healthy diet with several servings of fruits & vegetables each day, whole grain fibres, fish and low total fat (cooking coconut oil/olive oil). Limit sugar and salt intake, eat slowly chew longer be mindful and enjoy your food. Socialized and be physically & mentally active.

Besides woman's health talk there's also Atopiclair cream/lotion which is suitable for eczema patients. This is a non-steroidal product that is suitable even for baby and children. I might want to check this out as my dear sometimes like to scratch and makes him difficult to sleep.

I also find many woman interested in the Papulex, this is for acne skin, there are other range in Papulex as well.

The workshop session has slips to few session in a day and activities lining up for participants of the talk namely the learn about health through activities like booth tour & stamping, photography, cycling, hair grooming, blending your own healthy juices, slimming & pampering, health assessment/bone scan. There were also health talk on Myth about the virgin coconut oil and weight management, where Celebrity Testimonial, they are the Celebrity Sharing: Ms Aenie Wong & Mother. There are breakfast, buffet lunch and tea break provided.

The workshop is jointly organized by Feminine Magazine, Mommy Baby; Caring Pharmacy as the healthcare partner and Menarini as the official main sponsor, and other co-sponsors.
