17th Annual Solar Cup

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 19 Mag 2019

As students from 40 high schools gear up for the 17th annual Solar Cup™, preliminary scores heading into this weekend’s contest show Costa Mesa High leading the pack, with La Puente’s Nogales High and Oxford Academy in Cypress trailing closely behind.Hosted by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the nation’s largest solar-powered boat competition officially launches Friday (May 17) with boat inspections and qualifying for Saturday’s 90-minute endurance heats and Sunday’s 200-meter sprints at Lake Skinner in the Temecula Valley.While the head-to-head competition officially kicks off Friday, the contest started long before the students even set their boats on the lake. Over the past seven months, teams have been earning points for writing technical reports detailing how they built their boats’ electrical systems and drivetrains, producing a public service announcement promoting water conservation, and passing a technical inspection of their boats. These projects and other requirements represent roughly a third of the total possible points for the Solar Cup competition.In addition to earning high marks for both their technical reports, Costa Mesa High students garnered the most points for their public service announcement. The team’s creative video, developed in partnership with their co-sponsoring agency Mesa Water District, focused on the district’s water conservation efforts and shared effective tips for local residents to reduce their water use.Both Nogales and Oxford high schools also showed strong performances in all preliminary categories, earning second and third place for their PSAs, respectively. Using an effective and energetic narrator, Nogales High shared the benefits of planting California native landscapes, using their own high school campus as a backdrop. Oxford Academy presented information about Orange County’s water sources and California’s recent historic drought conditions to push the public to conserve more water. Metropolitan posted the top five student-produced conservation PSAs on the district’s Twitter account throughout this week.Prior to making qualifying runs Friday, the boats will be inspected and tested by Metropolitan and a technical advisory team from Occidental College to ensure they meet the program’s requirements and are safe and seaworthy. Saturday features two 90-minute endurance heats around a 1.6-kilometer course. The contest continues Sunday with the sprint races, closing with an awards ceremony in the afternoon. The single-seat boats, 16-feet-long, are built from kits of marine-grade plywood provided by Metropolitan. Teams equip them with steering, solar panels, batteries and motors producing up to 320 watts. The maximum weight, including the skipper, is 450 pounds.

Altai Capital Responds to Amber Road’s Postponement of Annual Meeting

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 20 aprile 2019

Altai Capital Management, L.P. (“Altai Capital”), one of the largest shareholders of Amber Road, Inc. (NYSE: AMBR) (“Amber Road” or, the “Company”), today issued the following statement regarding the Company’s sudden announcement that it will postpone the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), which was originally scheduled for May 7, 2019, by more than a month to June 18, 2019.“The unexplained decision of Amber Road’s Board to postpone the Annual Meeting appears to us to be a clear attempt to further entrench the Board and avoid accountability. We believe investors deserve the opportunity to voice, without delay, their frustration at the strategic missteps of the Company’s leadership. By delaying the shareholders’ right to elect directors at the appropriate meeting time, we believe the Company is perpetuating the pattern of self-serving actions and value destruction that have characterized Amber Road to date. We see no valid purpose for postponing the Annual Meeting and question the Board’s decision to do so only days before the scheduled date and after proxies have already been delivered to shareholders. In the absence of any explanation, we can only conclude that the Board is trying to buy more time to gather support they do not believe they have. As we have stated all along, Amber Road’s Board is in critical need of improvement—fresh, independent minds are essential to hold management accountable, to properly explore strategic alternatives and to provide shareholders with the transparency they deserve. This Board’s delay tactics only reinforce our concerns, serving as an acute reminder that the Company’s current Board, in our view, prioritizes its desire to stay in office over respecting the rights of its shareholders. To the extent that the current Board is deliberating on material decisions, we strongly believe that such deliberations should be conducted by a new, duly elected Board best-positioned to represent the best interests of all shareholders.

The first Annual Report

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 30 luglio 2014

europeanCourtHumanOn July 29, the European Union borders Agency Frontex published the first Annual Report of the Frontex Consultative Forum on Fundamental Rights. The key task of the Consultative Forum, which FRA and the Jesuit Refugee Service Europe (JRS) have co-chaired since its inauguration in October 2012, is to provide advice to Frontex on fundamental rights issues. Core areas on which the Consultative Forum is consulted include the further development and implementation of Frontex’ Fundamental Rights Strategy and Code of Conduct.
Following its establishment, the Consultative Forum began by assessing which Frontex activities may give rise to major fundamental rights concerns, in cooperation with the Fundamental Rights Officer, Frontex staff and the Frontex Management Board. This resulted in a decision for the Consultative Forum to work on selected issues in the fields of strategic planning, joint operations, risk analysis and training.
The Annual Report provides an overview of the activities undertaken by the Consultative Forum in 2013 and contains the main recommendations made to Frontex and its Management Board, as well as the subsequent impact of these on the Agency’s work.
