Too Much Noise in Today’s Workplace

Too much noise in today’s open office

Industry best noise cancelling, speech recognition microphone

Irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources, especially—from other people’s voices.

the annual cost to Europe from excessive noise levels is estimated at £30 billion. With over 70% of offices now open plan, with little to no worker segregation – think of all that lost productivity.”

— The World Health Organisation

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2017 / — What do hypertension, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease, impaired cognition and being annoyed have in common? All are possible outcomes of too much noise around us. Many people complain about noise, but fewer realize how harmful it can be. Turns out, hearing loss and ailments such as the ringing ears of tinnitus aren’t the only things we should worry about. Evidence of the non-auditory effects of noise on health is growing, too.

In offices, irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources: air conditioning, obnoxious ringtones, traffic, nearby construction, unsophisticated sound-masking systems and—especially—from other people’s voices, says Julian Treasure, chairman of a United Kingdom-based consultancy, The Sound Agency. Noisy environments tend to only get worse over time, because people start speaking louder as it gets noisier around them (known as the Lombard effect).

Being constantly alert to our environment, and noise easily makes us uneasy. Lab studies on humans as well as animals have shown that exposure to noise arouses the nervous system, causing rising blood pressure and the release of stress hormones. Over time, these instinctive responses can stress the cardiovascular system and give rise to negative outcomes such as anger and exhaustion.

Without an effective acoustical solution, experts say, the negative impacts of day-to-day noise in many office environments can also be significant.

“Cognitively, there is plenty of research now that shows that the most destructive sound of all is other people’s conversations,” agrees Treasure. “We have bandwidth for roughly 1.6 human conversations. So, if you’re hearing somebody’s conversation, then that’s taking up 1 of your 1.6. Even if you don’t want to listen to it, you can’t stop it: You have no ear lids. And that means you’ve just .6 left to listen to your own inner voice.”

The noise level of 60-65 decibels that’s common in some open-plan offices is not only too loud for concentration, it can also impede effective collaboration by causing speech interference. The sound level of speech is about 60 decibels if people talk to one another, in normal tones without raising their voices, at a distance of about one meter (3 ¼ feet). This means any other noise within that same range—someone else talking nearby, for instance—can cause speech interference, so not all the words may be fully heard. “Nevertheless, a sentence may be understood because of cortical processing. This, however, is an active process that may cause reaction leading to adverse effects in the longer run of chronic noise exposure.”
In other words, in noisy environments with poor acoustics, workers can as easily get stressed by trying to hear others as by trying not to hear others—a lose/lose proposition.

The World Health Organization estimates that the annual cost to Europe from excessive noise levels is £30 billion. With over 70% of offices now open plan, with little to no worker segregation – think of all that lost productivity.

If you think the acoustic environment in your office could be harming employee productivity and well being, you don’t have to shell out tens of thousands of dollars. Consider a practical solution to reducing noise levels in your space that can be implemented immediately at little cost.

MNZO Gets New Ownership & Two New Acquisitions

The powerhouse company MNZO has recently announced some exciting news regarding the changes and improvements to the company in the last few months.

Manzo Pharmaceuticals INC (OTCMKTS:MNZO)

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS , UNITED STATES, September 21, 2017 / — The powerhouse company MNZO has recently announced some exciting news regarding the changes and improvements to the company in the last few months. MNZO has been achieving important goals recently which puts them in a position to see a substantial amount of growth. The company recently acquired two successful companies in lucrative markets and created another management company which proved to be necessary due to their recent activities. When asked about immediate goals the President of MNZO, Robert Ritch (, revealed that the company is planning to focus a majority of their attention on the cultivation of their newly acquired companies but will still be pursuing other M&A opportunities.

The Acquisition of Simple Marketing Inc.
On September 5, 2017, MNZO acquired Simple Marketing Inc. The company has amassed a total exceeding $1 million in projected annual contracts. In regard to the acquisition of Simple Marketing Inc., it has become a collaboration between Robert Ritch and Robert Downey, the founder, and CEO of Simple Marketing. Since the acquisition, Robert Downey feels very positive about the transaction and stated that his company can greatly benefit from this merger. Robert Ritch stated that the hidden value of the company is in the intellectual property and processes.
The two have known each other for years and admire one another for their business savvy. They plan to combine their collective experience and expertise to create a company that is streamlined, and benefits its clients in a way that promotes success for all. To date, the collaboration has proved to be successful and is projected to see solid numbers in the immediate future. (

The Acquisition of WS Services LLC
The other acquisitions occurred on September 9, 2017, for WS Services LLC, which is a coating company focusing on the energy sector. This market is poised for tremendous growth over the next several years and puts MNZO in a very advantageous situation. The company has a healthy annual revenue in excess of $8.4 million and is only 10 years old. This company also has a history of solid performance and a strong management team which is projected to significantly increase with the recent acquisition by MNZO. (

The Creation of Manzo Management Services
MNZO also opened Manzo Management Services on September 5, 2017, and is designed to be the operations company within MNZO. Manzo Management Services will be managing the newly acquired companies which are the current primary goals for MNZO. Manzo Management Services provides administrative support as well as general support. (

Vision For The Future
Robert Ritch said that he plans on focusing on specific markets in the future and is directing attention toward areas such as energy, financial services, real estate, and technology, which are continuously growing fields with plenty of promise for a bright future.

Robert Ritch has always admired Warren Buffet. He tries to model much of his business technique and savvy in investing after his example. One particular move that mirrors this type of strategy involved purchasing the controlling share of Manzo Pharmaceuticals Inc. This proved to be a high point for his career and allowed him to prime the performance of the company to create the abundance of success it enjoys today.
One thing is certain, the leadership and expertise that MNZO has in these rapidly growing markets, and the strategies that Robert Rich and his team use to create successful businesses, the company has a bright future ahead.

Regulation for Autonomous, Connected and Secure cars-report

Auto2x's new report provides analysis of the regulatory status and timeline for Autonomous Driving, Automotive Cyber Security & V2X in major car markets

As the automotive and technology industries race to higher vehicle autonomy the regulatory barrier becomes a determinant of their commercialisation strategies”

— Auto2x

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 21, 2017 / — Auto2x expands its "Autonomous, Intelligent & Secure car" research portfolio with the addition of a new report which analyses the regulatory landscape for the transition from Supervised to Unsupervised-Driving (SAE Level 4-5) to allow deployment of higher levels of autonomy. Since the future is also Secure and Connected, our analysis also provides insights on regulatory developments in Automotive Cyber Security and V2X (V2V-V2I).

Key findings:

– 2017 will see the introduction of technology that allows “eyes-off” the road

The first-ever SAE Level 3-automated driving system in Audi’s flagship A8 has already been announced but customer availability is subject to regional regulatory approval. What’s more, there are inherent differences between the regulatory and legal framework across major car markets, i.e. Europe, the USA and China. This could adversely affect harmonisation of common standards and also delay the adoption of higher vehicle autonomy.

– As regulation shifts from driver-centric to Automated Driving Systems worldwide harmonisation challenges deployment

Amendment of international regulations as well as national traffic laws in will soon give the green light for deployment in Europe but will there be regional inconsistences between what’s legal and what’s not between the world’s leading car markets?

– New data recording requirements for L3 and the liability shift present challenges and opportunities for the auto value chain

The transition of control between the driver and the system has been met with mix reactions with concerns over safe transition control resulting to some carmakers announcing plans to skip L3 altogether and target L4 directly. Data recording and sharing capabilities when Level 3 systems are active will be key for accident reconstruction and determination of liability in higher levels of autonomy.

– Cyber Security is the new frontier for Automated and Connected Cars

Connected Car security needs to expand from its Physical dimension to cover the Cyber-Physical dimension and from the In-Vehicle-Network to the Internet-of-Things. While recent “white hack” demonstrations have raised awareness of the risk the automotive industry faces amid the proliferation of Connected Cars, connected devices and V2X, the slow progress of regulation and the absence of common standards restrict adoption of ACS solutions.

– Standardisation of the medium for V2V-V2I, i.e. DSRC vs cellular, restricts deployment

Even though V2V-V2I communications are not a technical prerequisite for Level 3 or higher, they can enhance safety by helping to overcome the limitations of on-board ADAS sensors, e.g. line-of-sight, weather conditions.

New Gold Standard Label Guarantees ‘Green Electricity’ Purchases Support Low Carbon Transition & the SDGs

Organisation established by WWF launches certification scheme to support development of new renewable power plants and life-changing impacts for local people.

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, September 21, 2017 / — Gold Standard, the premium label for climate and development projects worldwide, has launched a new Renewable Energy Label to assure businesses, governments and other buyers of renewable electricity attribute certificates* that their purchase supports the expansion of renewable energy generation capacity and achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Currently, a large proportion of renewable electricity is generated by power plants that have been running for several decades. The purchase of renewable energy through such old plants and their issued certificates does not ultimately increase the overall percentage of electricity that is generated by renewable sources. The new Gold Standard label will certify that electricity generated comes from power plants or devices that adhere to a strict age limit. Finance generated through the sale of this electricity is expected to go towards maintaining the power plant or the expansion of renewable generation capacity through the installation of new devices.

Marion Verles, CEO of Gold Standard, said: “Some renewable power stations in use today are a century old. While all green energy is good, we want our new certification scheme to drive the global transition away from fossil fuels by funding new sources of renewable energy. Added to this, our label assures buyers that the projects they support are delivering long-term sustainable development benefits, for example by creating new jobs, providing access to safe water or protecting local biodiversity.”

All renewable energy projects certified by Gold Standard must support long term sustainable development by contributing to at least three SDGs, including SDG 13 – climate action. For example, South Pole Group’s Siam Solar Project in Thailand, one of the first projects to seek certification under the new Gold Standard Renewable Energy Label, has created 70 jobs for skilled and unskilled workers while providing 64,130 people in central Thailand with clean energy and preventing 79,889 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

With global climate targets and falling renewable energy prices, demand for renewables is expected to increase rapidly over the coming years, with 102 major companies having already pledged to operate on 100% renewable electricity by joining the RE100 initiative.

Pedro Faria, Technical Director of CDP and Chair of the RE100 Technical Advisory Group, said: “Renewable energy markets can have even more impact than they do today. An instrument like the Gold Standard Renewable Energy Label, that is moving beyond consumer choice to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and deliver measurable progress toward the SDGs, is a great leap forward.”

Renat Heuberger, CEO of South Pole Group, said: "More and more leading companies procure renewable energy. And even more want to enable true environmental impacts and social co-benefits with their renewable energy procurement, in line with the Global Goals. Supporting the development of the Gold Standard Renewable Energy Label was an exciting journey – now we are pleased to bring it to market for our clients looking to increase the impact of their renewable energy purchase." 

Mario Abreu, VP Environment in PMCO (Product Management and Commercial Operations) in Tetra Pak, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company said: “At Tetra Pak, we want to support the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable economy so it is incredibly important to us that the renewable energy we buy comes from new or recently built installations that also provide broad sustainability benefits for local communities. This is why we are pleased to be one of the first companies to be purchasing renewable energy certified under the new Gold Standard Renewable Energy Label – a guarantee that our purchase of renewable energy supports meaningful social and environmental contributions.”

Established by WWF in 2003, Gold Standard sets the best practice benchmark for climate and development projects. Strict criteria, rigorous safeguards and independent third-party verification offer assurance that projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support sustainable development. Ongoing engagement with local stakeholders ensures projects benefit local nature and communities as much as possible, and that all concerns, risks and opportunities are considered.

Gold Standard’s new Renewable Energy Label was developed with support from South Pole Group and the Overlook International Foundation. It is part of Gold Standard for the Global Goals, a new standard to quantify, certify and maximise the impact of climate and development projects toward climate security and the SDGs.


*About Renewable Energy Attribute Certificates
Renewable energy attribute certificates support consumer claims about the type of energy used and its related attributes, such as greenhouse gas emissions, produced at the point of generation. They are tradeable, non-tangible energy commodities that represent proof that one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated and fed in to the electricity grid by an eligible renewable energy source. These market instruments are commonly known as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in the United States, a Guarantee of Origin (GO) in Europe and International RECs (I-RECs) in a number of countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa.

Renewable energy attribute certificates give consumers the option to purchase the rights to renewable electricity when they are not fed directly by a renewable energy source. They are commonly purchased by organisations that want to lower their carbon footprint and support the transition to a low-carbon economy, but which are unable to generate renewable electricity onsite.

About Gold Standard
Gold Standard is a standard and certification body that works to catalyse more ambitious action for climate security and sustainable development. It was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs as a best practice standard to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions under the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) also delivered on the dual mandate to foster sustainable development. Now with more than 80 NGO supporters and 1400+ projects in over 80 countries, Gold Standard projects have created billions of dollars of shared value from climate and development action worldwide.

With the launch of new standard, Gold Standard for the Global Goals, Gold Standard now certifies a range of independently-verified SDG Impacts.
