QVC – West Chester Heart Walk

More than 100 QVC associates were among the over 1,000 participants who walked last Saturday at West Goshen Park to benefit the American Heart Association, one of QVC’s featured charities. The focus of this year’s Heart Walk was to create hope, inspire change, and celebrate successes.

“Supporting the health and wellness of women is a key goal of QVC’s charitable mission, and heart health is a particularly critical issue for women, who play such an important role in building strong families and communities,” said Albany Irvin, QVC program host. “The American Heart Association has been one of QVC’s featured charities for years, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of their signature event.”

TE SubCom, a company of Berwyn’s TE Connectivity, an industry pioneer in undersea communications technology, has announced that it has been named the system supply partner for the new MAREA submarine cable across the Atlantic Ocean.

MAREA will be the highest-capacity subsea cable to ever cross the Atlantic – featuring eight fiber-pairs and an initial estimated design capacity of 160 Terabits/sec. The new submarine cable system will also be the first to connect the United States to southern Europe: from Virginia Beach to Spain. This new southern route will provide greater diversity of connections and enhanced reliability for customers, as well as optimal connectivity to data centers on the East Coast of the United States.

Kathryn Jablokow, associate professor of engineering design and mechanical engineering at Penn State Great Valley, is the recipient of the 2016 Ruth and Joel Spira Outstanding Design Educator Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Established in 2001, the award recognizes a person dedicated to furthering engineering design education through vision, interactions with students and industry, scholarship, and impact on the next generation of engineers, and whose actions serve as a role model for other educators to emulate.

“Design sits at the heart of engineering, where synthesis and analysis meet and mingle,” said Jablokow. “The open-ended nature of design makes it challenging to do and to teach, but it’s tremendously satisfying when you get it right.”
