U.S. Polo Assn. Announces His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, India, as New Global Brand Ambassador

WEST PALM BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 20, 2024 / U.S. Polo Assn., the official brand of the United States Polo Association (USPA), has announced His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh(Pacho) of Jaipur, India, as its new Global Brand Ambassador.

Sawai Padmanabh Singh is a member of the Royal Family of Jaipur and is the current Maharaja of Jaipur. A professional polo player, Singh has played for and captained the Indian National Team and has participated in tournaments across Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Spain, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States and more.

Pacho’s passion and enthusiasm for the sport of polo has helped popularize it beyond the field, and today the tournaments in Jaipur draw visitors from around the world. With the royal patronage of the Rajasthan Polo Club, Singh continues to further the cause of supporting this unique and historic sport.

"It’s an honor to be selected as Global Brand Ambassador for U.S. Polo Assn., a brand that is so popular and respected in my home country of India and so authentic to the sport of polo," said His Highness, Padmanabh Singh, Maharaja of Jaipur. "I look forward to representing the brand with great enthusiasm at sporting and fashion events and on social media for fans and consumers around the world!"

The Role of a U.S. Polo Assn. Global Brand Ambassador

The scope of Pacho’s role as Global Brand Ambassador is broad and designed to shine the spotlight on talented polo players and the authenticity of the brand around the world. He will be outfitted in U.S. Polo Assn. apparel and performance gear both on and off the field, share his polo-related and other daily activities on social media, participate in sporting and fashion events on behalf of U.S. Polo Assn., as well as engage in media requests for interviews and campaigns.

"U.S. Polo Assn. is proud to welcome Pacho to our outstanding roster of Global Brand Ambassadors," said J. Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPA Global, which manages the multi-billion-dollar U.S. Polo Assn. brand. "U.S. Polo Assn. is a brand that spans 190 countries, including more than 400 brand stores in India alone, and Pacho is a perfect representative of a global polo player that encompasses what our sport-inspired brand is all about – global, vibrant, authentic, and exciting."

U.S. Polo Assn. will also launch a Capsule Collection of elevated polo shirts, white sports pants, oxfords, and sport-inspired accessories inspired by Pacho that he will promote as a U.S. Polo Assn. Global Brand Ambassador.

His Highness Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh and the Sport of Polo

His Highness brings to U.S. Polo Assn. his spirit of sportsmanship and distinctive style that he displays both on and off the field.

Pacho is passionate about the sport of polo and has represented India in the sport across the world. He was named Captain of the Indian National Polo Team in 2022. His journey began while he was at school in the U.K., where he joined the prestigious Guards Polo Club and played at different levels in the U.K. He has won almost every major polo tournament in India and was also the youngest player to win the India Open.

He is also working towards promoting polo in Jaipur through various initiatives like high-goal tournaments, Ladies’ Polo, and Junior Polo. He has recently revived the historic Jaipur Polo Team to keep the rich legacy of his family’s contributions to the sport alive. The Jaipur Polo Team was revered as one of the greatest in the world and reigned supreme during its time, winning every major polo tournament including the World Cup in 1957 at Deauville, France.

As patron of the Rajasthan Polo Club, Pacho has instituted various training programs for young sportspersons to enable them to learn riding and polo at very nominal rates, with special programs for girls. It is also thanks to Pacho’s efforts that every polo season now includes low-goal tournaments, Ladies’ Polo, and Out of Hat series for aspiring young players to participate in, encouraging greater participation and inclusivity in a sport perceived by many as elitist. As a result, and unlike any other polo center, Jaipur sees polo fans from many different demographics rush to see and support the game. This is encouraged by His Highness through free access for all games organized at the polo club.

U.S. Polo Assn., an India Power Brand

U.S. Polo Assn.’s popularity in India has only grown with the population, making India prime to be the global brand’s fastest-growing market. The tremendous growth in popularity and ultimately market share is not without effort, which includes a strategy focused on both brick-and-mortar and e-commerce, as well as overall brand marketing through storytelling.

"We are thrilled to have His Highness, the Maharaja of Jaipur, as a Global Brand Ambassador for U.S. Polo Assn., one of the most important brands in India," said Shailesh Chaturvedi, Managing Director and CEO of Arvind Fashions Ltd. "Pacho’s stature, popularity, sportsmanship and passion are all an excellent representation of our global, sport-inspired brand."

"The combination of having His Highness as our Ambassador, alongside our new, iconic Legends Campaign, our exciting India website, as well as our revamped stores – it’s an incredible time for U.S. Polo Assn. consumers to be immersed in our unique brand story in India and around the world," added Chaturvedi.

Hyris Technology Supports the Fight Against One of the World’s Deadliest Diseases, Malaria

Hyris’ molecular diagnostic technology has been adapted to enable real-time surveillance of mosquito vector insecticide resistance, which will aid in malaria control campaigns.

LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / February 20, 2024 / Hyris, working with an international team of researchers, has developed a prototype field-deployable surveillance system to detect insecticide-resistant malaria vector mosquitoes in the field without the need for transportation to sophisticated laboratories. The prototype can diagnose a mosquito for insecticide resistance at the field site three or less hours after capture. Current approaches can take up to six months since samples must be collected in remote areas and then transported to centralized laboratories for testing.

The early and cost-effective detection of mosquito resistance to insecticides is essential for planning and implementing effective malaria control strategies. Mosquito-killing insecticides remain key weapons in preventing malaria transmission in sub-Saharan Africa and other malaria-endemic parts of the world. However, mosquitoes often develop resistance to insecticides, rendering them ineffective in disrupting the spread of the disease.

The research team is led by Professor George Dimopoulos at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute, and together with Professor Charles Wondji at the Centre for Research in Infectious Diseases in Yaoundé, Cameroon the team has been working since 2021 conducting laboratory R&D, and field testing in malaria-endemic areas of Cameroon. This is enabled by the distinctive features of the Hyris System™ for molecular testing that is based on a simple portable battery-powered device rather than a heavy laboratory-based benchtop machine.

The newly developed Hyris technology of pre-filled dried cartridges enables running the diagnostic assay by simply adding the mosquito sample to a well already containing all other reagents, simplifying the testing workflow. The stability of the dried reagents enables their storage at room temperature for up to six months thereby not requiring freezers which are lacking at most sample collection sites in the field.

This research project was supported by a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant made to Johns Hopkins University.

"This new test is deployable right in-field," explains Lorenzo Colombo, CTO and Managing Director at Hyris. "Our technology enables researchers to collect a mosquito sample in the field and conduct the molecular diagnostic assay right there, with real-time acquisition, from a central lab, of insecticide resistance data from the disease-endemic area."

The team is currently exploring the path for nationwide deployment of the mosquito insecticide resistance surveillance system in Cameroon, something that would enable real-time informed decision-making on malaria mosquito control campaigns using the most effective insecticides.

Stefano Lo Priore, Founder and CEO at Hyris, further explains the advantages of this new test: "The necessity of cold chain has always been a critical roadblock for any test distribution in remote areas. This new malaria mosquito insecticide resistance test does not require any cold chain for shipping, making it one hundred percent field-deployable." Lo Priore also highlights how such projects perfectly align with Hyris’ commitment to developing advanced biotech solutions for critical environments. "We work to provide increasingly efficient ways to manage outbreak readiness and health prevention, especially in the most challenging situations."

State President offers incense to ancient king


Hanoi: State President Vo Van Thuong offered incense to King An Duong Vuong at the Co Loa special national relic in Hanoi’s outlying district of Dong Anh on February 20.

An Duong Vuong, succeeding the era of the nation founders Hung Kings, is credited with establishing Au Lac, an ancient state in Vietnam. His strategic vision and unwavering determination in national construction and defence led him to relocate the nation’s centre from the northern mountainous region to the vast and fertile plains where he established the ancient capital, known today as Co Loa.

Through extraordinary efforts, An Duong Vuong and the people of Au Lac completed the construction of the Co Loa Citadel, featuring a unique spiral three-tiered architectural design, within a remarkably short period.

During the visit, President Thuong planted a tree at the site and toured community centres of residential groups in Dong Anh district and the local culture, information and sport centre.

Earlier in the morning, the leader visited and pre
sented gifts to Phuc Loc kindergarten in Uy No commune. Covering an area of over 8,000 sq.m, it is the first public kindergarten in Dong Anh district oriented toward a high-quality preschool model./.
