Preti pedofili: la crisi che vive la Chiesa

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 2 settembre 2018

La lettera dell’arcivescovo Carlo Maria Viganò, ex nunzio apostolico negli Stati Uniti, pubblicata tra il 25 e il 26 agosto e in cui chiede la rinuncia di Papa Francesco, è stata una bomba per i cattolici di tutto il mondo. Migliaia di articoli, pubblicati nei giorni successivi, hanno seminato confusione ma sono anche serviti ad aggiungere nuovi dati, perfino autentiche rivelazioni, che aiutano a comprendere meglio il valore del testo.Riportiamo di seguito alcune conclusioni che si possono trarre attualmente dalle informazioni pubblicate e verificate.
Giornalisti e altre persone che prima della pubblicazione della lettera erano in contatto con l’arcivescovo Viganò hanno affermato pubblicamente che il testo era stato rivisto e approvato dal Papa emerito Benedetto XVI (cfr. New York Times, 27 agosto 2018).Queste informazioni sono state smentite dal segretario personale di Benedetto XVI, l’arcivescovo Georg Gänswein: “L’affermazione per la quale il Papa emerito aveva confermato queste dichiarazioni manca di fondamento. Fake news!”In alcune dichiarazioni al quotidiano tedesco Die Tagespost, il presule tedesco ha spiegato che “Papa Benedetto non ha fatto commenti sul ‘memorandum’ dell’arcivescovo Viganò e non ne farà”.Me le accuse di monsignor Viganò contro Papa Francesco sono vere? Nuove rivelazioni permettono di comprendere meglio la crisi che vive la Chiesa.
Come si può interpretare la partecipazione di monsignor Viganò a un omaggio pubblico all’ex cardinale Theodore McCarrick, il 2 maggio 2012, presso il Pierre Hotel di Manhattan? Si tratta di un fatto centrale, perché l’arcivescovo chiede la rinuncia di Francesco per non aver applicato le “sanzioni canoniche” che Papa Benedetto XVI avrebbe emesso privatamente contro l’ex porporato statunitense, attualmente accusato di abusi sessuali.

Syngenta Looks to a Shared Vision for Sustainable Agriculture

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 2 settembre 2018

Syngenta has announced that over the coming three months it will undertake consultation and engagement with stakeholders from around the world in an effort to build a shared vision for the future of sustainable agriculture. Through listening and dialogue, Syngenta is seeking to better understand the role it can play and the commitments needed from all sides to help make a shared vision reality.Syngenta Chief Sustainability Officer Alexandra Brand said, “We want to work together with stakeholders to build viable, productive and resilient farms, using modern agricultural technologies to safely feed the world while taking care of the planet. We will continue to provide farmers and rural communities with solutions to help them to thrive and deliver safe and nutritious food. Agriculture currently uses 70 per cent of the world’s fresh water1 and is a major source of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions2. Our products and solutions help address such challenges and improve outcomes for the environment, particularly soil health and biodiversity.” Setting out why Syngenta is doing this now, Mrs. Brand said, “It’s time to have a more direct and inclusive conversation to help rebuild the trust between society and science. As a company we need to align our role with the roles of others and work in a way that continues to build society’s confidence in the farming and agricultural innovation sectors. We want to make sure we are able to respond appropriately to the expectations of all our stakeholders so we can move forward constructively and together. Building consensus on how different agriculture systems can help support delivery of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals will be the base on which the listening sessions are built.”Mrs. Brand went on to say, “Once completed around the end of November 2018, we will be able to establish where we intend to focus our own efforts. Outcomes from the consultations will help form the basis of new commitments for achieving a future vision, together. We will establish how to accelerate the development of products and technologies that can continue to meet the needs of small farmers, large farmers and society, in the future. We will also translate our findings into the next evolution of our successful Good Growth Plan beyond 2020. We expect that by early next year we will announce how we intend to move forward.”Mrs. Brand said the listening sessions would take different forms including roundtables and one-to-one conversations. “Around the world we will reach out directly to different groups and individuals who, together, represent a cross section of those with a stake in the future of sustainable agriculture.”

Joint Whitepaper Explores Increase in DMR Tier III Adoption for Mission Critical Communications

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 2 settembre 2018

Hytera, a leading provider of innovative Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) communications solutions, jointly announced the release of a new white paper entitled “DMR Trunked: Next Generation of LMR Technology” with IHS Markit, a global analysis firm specializing in the critical communications industry. The white paper outlines the steady growth and evolution path of DMR Tier III technology and provides a comprehensive analysis on its market demand and future adoption in vertical sectors such as Enterprise, Transportation, Utilities and Public Safety.
DMR Tier II conventional technology has traditionally been a business-critical technology, supplying communications for enterprise users. With the introduction of DMR Tier III trunking, the public safety and security markets are recognizing DMR as a viable technology for mission-critical applications. With a full complement of features designed with mission-critical users in mind, DMR Tier III trunking is gaining a global foothold in the Public Safety and security markets. By the year 2021, the Public Safety vertical is expected to account for nearly 35% of all DMR Tier III shipments worldwide. According to the white paper, a key driver in the adoption of DMR technology is the rapid worldwide migration to digital technology. Historically, LMR (licensed mobile radio) communications technologies utilized analog operation. However, today’s LMR market is advanced, forward-thinking and fast-paced, with innovative technologies, concepts, and integrations hitting the market regularly. Recent technology announced by leading players for DMR Tier II, NXDN and dPMR have incorporated equipment supporting communications on both analog and digital networks – thus facilitating this transition. DMR Tier III technology has benefited from the transformation, growing as a competitive protocol for the Public Safety sector and becoming a mainstream technology for Utilities, Transportation, and Enterprise industries worldwide. Convergence is anticipated to be the future of the critical communications industry. As more countries begin considering their roadmap to broadband LTE communications systems, hybrid solutions will form a large part of the transition economy. In short, LTE will complement critical voice with data, rather than replacing PMR altogether. With enhanced system design, security protection and encryption, DMR Tier III technology provide a clear evolution path to LTE migration in the form of a converged PMR + LTE solution, which will ultimately be required to make any LTE transition viable. A converged DMR and LTE solution includes a dual-mode radio which can connect to a cellular network in addition to the DMR network, which allows video uploading and video calls via the commercial network while connecting to the DMR network for mission and business-critical voice.
