UE: Pittella, tradite aspettative regioni e parlamenti

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2012

“Le speranze innescate dal Trattato di Lisbona su un maggior coinvolgimento delle assemblee regionali, dei parlamenti nazionali e del Parlamento europeo nei processi di formazione della legislazione sono state tradite dalle prassi decisionali”. Lo ha detto il vicepresidente vicario del Parlamento europeo, Gianni Pittella, intervenendo recentemente alla seduta dell’Assemblea Legislativa della Regione Emilia Romagna. “La crisi finanziaria – ha proseguito Pittella – ha portato un senso di urgenza ed emergenza che ha contribuito a sparigliare le regole del gioco. Si è assistito nella pratica ad una sconfessione dello spirito di Lisbona. Nella gestione dei passaggi più complessi, si è infatti assistito all’affermazione di un rinnovato approccio intergovernativo che ha marginalizzato non solo le Assemblee regionali e nazionali ma anche il Parlamento europeo”. “Il duopolio franco-tedesco ha preferito affrontare la crisi economica in maniera unilaterale. E mi si lasci dire con franchezza – ha detto ancora Pittella – che questo approccio non solo si è rivelato poco rispettoso degli equilibri “costituzionali” dell’Unione europea ma è stato anche contro-producente dal punto di vista dei risultati raggiunti. Il metodo intergovernativo ha prodotto un insieme di risposte confuse e poco efficaci. (fonte: http://www.aiccre.it)

Sisvel festeggia il 5o anniversario dell’apertura di Sisvel Japan

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2012

Tokyo, (PRNewswire) Sisvel, leader mondiale nella gestione della proprietà intellettuale e nella valorizzazione economica dei diritti derivanti dai brevetti, ha festeggiato presso l’Ambasciata Italiana in Giappone alla presenza di Sua Eccellenza Vincenzo Petrone, Ambasciatore Italiano in Giappone, e di una folta rappresentanza dell’Industria dell’elettronica di consumo giapponese, il 5o anniversario dalla fondazione della filiale Sisvel Japan K.K. La società, con base a Tokyo, rappresenta una presenza strategica per lo sviluppo del business in Giappone. L’Ambasciatore Petrone ha sottolineato l’importanza dell’evento “La collaborazione internazionale nella difesa della proprietà intellettuale ha grandi potenzialità di sviluppo, in particolare nelle relazioni bilaterali tra Italia e Giappone, Paesi entrambi fortemente interessati alla valorizzazione delle proprie capacità di innovazione tecnologica. Sisvel è divenuta in questi anni un punto di riferimento in Giappone per questo settore.” In occasione della cerimonia, l’Ing. Roberto Dini, fondatore della Sisvel, ha dichiarato: “In tutto il mondo gli intangible assets, quali brevetti, marchi e design, sono diventati uno strumento essenziale nella competizione internazionale. Il lavoro di valorizzazione della proprietà industriale che Sisvel ha fatto negli ultimi anni mostra un percorso importante per l’industria italiana, ma anche per quella giapponese, soprattutto in vista delle sempre maggiori difficoltà che i paesi industrialmente avanzati hanno nel competere con i paesi emergenti.” Alle parole dell’Ing. Dini, ha fatto seguito l’Avv. Giustino de Sanctis, CEO della capogruppo Sisvel, specificando che “Le aziende giapponesi hanno sempre avuto grande sensibilità nel proteggere le loro invenzioni, perciò detengono pacchetti di brevetti tra i più importanti al mondo. Lo scopo di Sisvel Japan è quello di offrire alle aziende giapponesi le capacità del Gruppo Sisvel per valorizzare economicamente i loro brevetti.” La storia del Gruppo Sisvel inizia nel 1982 con la fondazione di Sisvel in Italia. Ad oggi il Gruppo è leader mondiale nella gestione della proprietà intellettuale e nella valorizzazione economica dei diritti derivanti dai brevetti. Sisvel è un gruppo globale presente in Italia (Sisvel a None Torinese e la Edico di Roma), Stati Uniti (Sisvel US e Audio MPEG a Washington DC), Cina (Sisvel Hong Kong), Giappone (Sisvel Japan a Tokyo), Germania (Sisvel Germany a Stoccarda) e Lussemburgo (Sisvel International) e con oltre cento professionisti tra i quali rientrano tecnici, legali ed esperti di brevetti. La storia di Sisvel è legata alla gestione di alcuni portafogli brevettuali di grande successo, tra i quali vanno annoverati quelli relativi agli standard per la compressione dei file audio noti con le sigle MP3 e MPEG Audio, nonché di tecnologie diffuse in tutto il mondo quali l’OSD (On Screen Display), l’ATSS (Automatic Tuning & Sorting System), e il WSS (Wide Screen Signaling – per la commutazione automatica delle immagini televisive). Al momento SISVEL opera patent pools (pacchetti di brevetti acquisibili con un’unica licenza) per gli standard UHF-RFID, CDMA 2000, DVB-T e DVB-T2 ed è impegnata nel facilitarne altri relativi agli standard LTE, DVB-C2 e Wi-Fi.

Euromediterraneo: al via i programmi comunitari per lo sviluppo rurale

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2012

L’Unione europea ha lanciato un programma per lo sviluppo dell’agricoltura e delle zone rurali per i Paesi a sud del Mediterraneo. Il Programma europeo per lo sviluppo agricolo (ENPARD) ha avviato un seminario a Tunisi lo scorso marzo alla presenza del Ministro dell’agricoltura tunisino, del Ministro per la programmazione e lo sviluppo regionale, del Ministro delle finanze e di alcune organizzazioni della società civile. Con questo programma l’Unione europea mira ad includere l’area meridionale del Mediterraneo nei suoi progetti di crescita mediante il raggiungimento di tre obiettivi chiave quali l’accrescimento del reddito dei produttori e sviluppo rurale, specie tra i più giovani, l’accrescimento della produttività del sistema attraverso il miglioramento della qualità dei prodotti, e infine il rinforzo delle capacità organizzative e istituzionali ai principi di buona amministrazione. Un programma pluriennale quindi da strutturarsi con l’ausilio di tutti i Pesi coinvolti e focalizzato sull’accrescimento della sicurezza alimentare secondo precisi modelli di sviluppo agricolo sostenibile a livello locale da un lato, e dall’altro sull’incremento degli standard produttivi e qualitativi che favoriscano una crescita adeguata del territorio e dei mercati locali. A questo va aggiunta la creazione di infrastrutture per il supporto logistico. L’Istituto agronomico mediterraneo di Montpellier (IAMM-CIHEAM) è stato assunto con il compito di sviluppare questa iniziativa in Marocco, Tunisia, Egitto e Cisgiordania.

Spread Betting With City Index: The Answer to a Double-Dip Recession?

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2012

London, (PRNewswire) Spread betting enables investors to take a position on a market that is not only rising, but falling also with the potential to net significant profits. If an investor expects a market to fall – or if it is already falling – unlike in more conventional trading, they can go short and sell. This means their profits will rise in line with any fall in that market’s price. However, if the market moves against them; they can also lose more than their initial deposit.
A recession is defined as two or more consecutive quarters of economic decline and on Wednesday 25 April 2012; Britain sank back into a recession once again.The GDP shrank unexpectedly from 0.2% between January and March this year, which followed a 0.3% contraction in the fourth quarter of 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics.This is the first double-dip since the 1970s – so thirty years later, how are investors going to trade?1970s: The Recession and Spread Betting are born. Whether older or wiser, one thing is for sure; there is a new way to trade this time around with financial spread betting. When compared to Britain’s first double-dip recession; spread betting could be considered its slightly younger and more opportunistic cousin. Where the recession occurred between 1973 and 1975 – spread betting came to fruition just after, between 1975 and 1980. Whilst the recession set about creating doom and gloom; financial spread betting provided investors with opportunities by offering them the potential to profit from a market that was not only rising, but falling also. It could be contemplated that spread betting was a reaction to the volatile markets of the early 1970s, or even just a timely coincidence. What can be said is that spread betting is a way for many investors to take a position on over 12,000 financial markets for only a small initial deposit.
Spread Betting provider City Index is one of the world leaders in spread betting and CFD trading with close to thirty years experience, having established themselves within the UK in 1983.Since then; they have grown to become a leading provider of spread betting, CFD (Contract for Difference) and FX trading.Launching first with a financial spread betting offering in 1983; they evolved quickly from 2001 to provide CFDs in the UK – and now globally.To consolidate their position as one of the market leaders; they acquired forex broker IFX Markets and spread betting provider Finspreads.
By 2008, they opened offices in Sydney, Singapore and Shanghai serving clients in the Asia Pacific region and following an acquisition of FX Solutions – a market leader in retail and white label forex services in the US – they expanded their global reach across the USA and into the Middle East.
Most recently, their developments turned to technology in order to mirror the demand for even smarter-smartphones; so in late 2009, the City Trading™ CFD trading and spread betting app for iPhone™ was launched. Since, the app has been developed for Android™ and Blackberry devices – winning multiple industry awards.
Spread betting, CFD trading and FX are leveraged products which can result in losses greater than your initial deposit. Ensure you fully understand the risks.
Today more and more individual traders are discovering the benefits of derivatives, and many of them are discovering them through a City Index trading platform.As a group, we transact in excess of 1.5 million trades every month in over 50 countries. We provide access to a wide range of instruments including margined foreign exchange, CFDs and, in the UK, financial spread betting. We constantly look to improve the performance of our platforms and expand our range of services. The result is our customers benefit from innovative trading tools with transparent pricing, competitive spreads, and a high standard of customer support.

Bilancio 2013 dell’UE: investire nella crescita

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 aprile 2012

150,9 miliardi ed un aumento del 2% rispetto all’anno scorso. A tanto ammontano gli impegni previsti nel progetto di bilancio 2013 presentato dalla Commissione europea. 62,5 miliardi di euro sarebbero destinati alla crescita e all’occupazione in Europa. Il progetto di bilancio 2013 pone anche una forte enfasi sugli aspetti del risparmio e dell’efficienza in termini di costi. Così si ridimensioneranno le linee di bilancio per i programmi che non danno prova di efficacia e si è inoltre cercato di realizzare ogni possibile risparmio su tutte le istituzioni e agenzie dell’UE, la maggior parte delle quali subirà tagli concreti al bilancio annuale(fonte: http://www.aiccre.it)

Joseph Corrė -Illamasqua Joint MD “Why should it be the case that you hit 40 and morph into a dull, boring version of your original self? Bombarded by products to hide your age rather than celebrate your experience and vitality.” Illamasqua are looking for beauty without limits – age limits, beauty has no sell-by date. That’s why Illamasqua’s new AW2012 campaign will feature people of all ages. If you’re someone who never lets age define you, or you know someone who fits that description, Illamasqua want to encourage you to nominate your mothers, aunts, grandmothers or any strong person in your life to be part of their next campaign in a glamorous beauty shoot celebrating all ages and diversities. As well as individuals, we are looking for pairs – from mothers and daughters to nieces and aunties, to grandmothers and grandsons. The combinations are endless.
In return, all those featured in the campaign receive £500, a new Illamasqua make-up kit worth £500 and a framed photo of yourself like you’ve never looked like before.
