Roma: Fringe festival 2019

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 gennaio 2019

Roma 28 gennaio, ore 18.00 – 23.30 Teatro Vascello, Via Giacinto Carini, 78 si svolgerà la finale nazionale della settima edizione del Roma Fringe Festival, con i 4 spettacoli più apprezzati dalla rete dei teatri indipendenti italiani di Zona Indipendente, e con Antonio Rezza, Flavia Mastrella, Manuela Kustermann, Ulderico Pesce, Valentino Orfeo, Ferruccio Marotti, Giorgio de Finis, Pasquale Pesce.
Dal 7 gennaio 2019, il Roma Fringe Festival ha portato alla Pelanda un’offerta di spettacoli varia e attenta alle nuove drammaturgie, strutturando una proposta aperta alla città e composta da realtà provenienti da Italia, Gran Bretagna, Svizzera e Israele.Gli spazi dell’ex Mattatoio di Roma hanno ben accolto la proposta artistica del Fringe romano, confermando la vocazione performativa dello spazio nel segno dell’indipendenza che il festival quest’anno più che mai ha avvalorato come sua vocazione.”Indipendente è una parola chiave di questa edizione” ha spiegato il direttore artistico Fabio Galadini “perché da questo concetto abbiamo creato, grazie all’adesione di 14 teatri in tutta Italia, a partire dal prestigioso Teatro Vascello di Roma, un circuito che abbiamo chiamato Zona Indipendente. Una rete di 14 teatri che ospiteranno nella stagione 2019/2020 lo spettacolo vincitore del Roma Fringe Festival 2019. Questo, insieme alla possibilità di partecipare a uno dei fringe mondiali, è un premio, che al di là di riconoscimenti o titoli rappresenta in concreto una seria opportunità per l’artista o la compagnia vincitrice di far conoscere il proprio lavoro”.Sono stati proprio i direttori artistici degli spazi indipendenti da tutta Italia a decretare i 3 finalisti che si esibiranno il 28 gennaio 2019 al Teatro Vascello di fronte al pubblico e a una giuria di qualità composta da Manuela Kustermann, Flavia Mastrella, Antonio Rezza, Ulderico Pesce, Valentino Orfeo, Ferruccio Marotti, Giorgio de Finis e Pasquale Pesce. Biglietto 8 euro.

Local Credit Unions Help Members Affected by Partial Government Shutdown

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 gennaio 2019

Many local credit unions are providing financial assistance and support to their members who are affected by the partial government shutdown, including Educational Employees Credit Union, Central Valley Firefighters Credit Union, Kings Federal Credit Union, Merced School Employees Federal Credit Union, Noble Credit Union, San Joaquin Power Employees Credit Union, Tulare County Federal Credit Union, United Local Credit Union, and Valley First Credit Union.“The uncertainty as to when the shutdown will end has created stress and hardship for many credit union members who are now struggling to pay their bills and provide for their families,” said Elizabeth Dooley, EECU president/CEO. “Credit Unions are offering options to federal employees affected by the partial shutdown – such as skipping a loan payment or zero percent loans – to help their members get through this challenging time.” If the shutdown continues and additional assistance is needed, credit unions are prepared to discuss other options with their members.In keeping with the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” EECU and other credit unions have also offered special financial assistance packages to members who were affected by floods, hurricanes and the recent devastating California wildfires.The actions by credit unions across the state to assist federal workers have received recognition from Congress and the State Government. The chief economic and business advisor to Governor Gavin Newsom also recognized credit unions’ efforts.

Sofradir and ULIS to invest €150M in French Nano 2022 program, part of EU initiative on microelectronics

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 gennaio 2019

Grenoble, France. Sofradir and its subsidiary ULIS today announce their participation in the Nano 2022 initiative, which sees the Group invest €150M ($171M) over the period 2018-2022.This announcement follows the European Commission’s approval on December 18, 2018 of the ‘Important Project of Common European Interest’ (IPCEI), a joint project by France, Germany, Italy and the UK to give €1.75 billion (approx. $2bn) in public support for research and innovation in microelectronics.Nano 2022 is France’s initiative within the cross-border program that will support developments in nanotechnology, a market sector of strategic importance for the future, which includes applications such as smart sensors. The Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region, where Sofradir and ULIS have operations, announced it will contribute €35M ($40M) to support Nano 2022.Sofradir and ULIS, whose infrared technologies are used in a range of applications from space observation and environmental monitoring to security surveillance and predictive maintenance, will invest €150M ($171M) in the Nano 2022 initiative in order to develop next-generation infrared detectors.“Infrared technologies can offer the necessary solutions for improving assisted living, mobility, energy efficiency, security and environmental monitoring, which are all crucial societal needs,” said Jean-François Delepau, chairman and CEO of Sofradir and ULIS. “As a result of our investment, equipment manufacturers will benefit from the ease-of-use and performance these new products will offer.”Nano 2022 will enable ULIS to develop the next generations of infrared detectors to address trends in autonomous systems for smart buildings (workspace management, energy savings), road safety and in-cabin comfort of vehicles. It also enables Sofradir to develop the very large dimension infrared detectors needed for space and astronomy observations as well as compact and light sensors that can be used in portable devices and on drones. Nano 2022 contributes to the funding of the pilot lines required for developing these technologies and products.Sofradir and ULIS participate in Nano 2022 alongside other companies based in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region, including STMicroelectronics and Soitec.The IPCEI framework develops key cross-border R&D and infrastructure projects aimed at encouraging member states to channel their public spending into large projects. These make a clear contribution to economic growth, job creation and the competitiveness of Europe. The European Commission (DGComp) evaluates the funding conditions, ensuring they are in line with EU state aid rules.
