DXC Technology, a Fortune 250 company and the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services provider, and UnitedLex, the leading global enterprise legal services provider, are proud to announce DXC’s award of 2019 ACC Australian Legal Team (Large) of the Year.

Australia Post Delivers IT Operations Enhancements with Snow Software

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 31 agosto 2019

Snow Software, the global leader in technology intelligence solutions, today announced that Australia Post is using the Snow platform to optimize IT operations, gain insight into its technology ecosystem and manage application sprawl. As the organization responsible for delivering over 3 billion items and managing more than 4,000 post offices nationally, Australia Post has a government mandate to deliver quality service while also earning a profit. This requires Australia Post to run its IT ecosystem as effectively and efficiently as possible in order to support the operation at scale. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2020, there will be 40 zettabytes worth of data created around the globe. The ability to collect, analyze and understand vast amounts of data is a vital part of doing business, yet it has become increasingly complex for enterprises. Australia Post has partnered with Snow to gain a deep understanding of their IT ecosystem – from high-level technology asset trends at their post offices and delivery centers to the granular details of which versions of operating systems are in use across the entire organization. With this visibility, Australia Post can redistribute assets based on usage, address technology anomalies and ensure maximum value from technology investments. “This latest partnership will give us greater insight into the performance of our software, hardware and applications assets,” said Matt Whykes, Manager of IT Billing and Finance at Australia Post. “Like many other IT departments, time is always of the essence, and Snow’s rapid turnaround with their in-depth reports means we save time and gain greater insight from that data. We’ve already begun using Snow to manage technology assets in circulation. For example, we’re able to identify idle laptops and have them redistributed to areas in need, and the accuracy of our laptop and desktop fleet data has increased from 40% to 95%. Snow’s intelligence helps us understand and manage the relationship between user, application and the device. The partnership means we can now recognize and meter well over 8,000 cloud/SaaS applications, which is a real gain for Australia Post.” “Today’s public sector organizations face a variety of challenges including the migration and optimization of the cloud, implementation of data privacy measures, control of technology sprawl and the ability to ensure efficient IT spend,” said Ken Schock, Chief Revenue Officer at Snow. “Without accurate intelligence around their technology ecosystems, CIOs and IT teams are unable to contribute to strategic business opportunities, and instead are forced into reactively deal with unanticipated technical issues. Snow empowers IT leaders with the insights needed to put the focus back into the growth and success of the business.”

L’emigrante: storie di vita vissuta. Il viaggio in Australia

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 27 agosto 2019

Sono stato sul finire degli anni cinquanta in Australia, per circa un anno, da emigrante. Da allora sono trascorsi tanti anni e taluni particolari sono rimasti sfocati nella mia memoria tranne uno che oggi mi torna vivido e bruciante. E’ stato il momento in cui la nave della flotta Lauro che mi avrebbe portato in Australia lasciava lentamente la banchina del porto di Brindisi e lì tra i tanti, che assistevano alla partenza, vi era mio padre. Ci guardammo finché fu possibile ed io probabilmente in quell’istante non colsi in pieno il suo sguardo disperato, il suo dolore. Aveva cercato in tutti i modi d’indurmi a rinunciare a questa mia avventura ma con l’incoscienza dei giovani, la voglia di nuovo e di diverso mi avevano reso cieco e sordo. Oggi a differenza di allora quel suo sguardo è rimasto come un marchio indelebile sulla mia carne. Partivo con un regolare contratto di lavoro con le ferrovie dello stato del Victoria e quindi sapevo cosa sarei andato a fare a Melbourne come “station assistent” e mi fu anticipato il costo del viaggio e data una piccola somma in denaro per le mie prime spese. Ero insieme ad una ventina di altri giovani che con me avevano avuto a Napoli, dopo un’accura visita medica, un colloquio con un funzionario australiano e un suo collega del ministero del lavoro per siglare le clausole contrattuali e garantirne il rispetto. Esso prevedeva, tra l’altro, tre mesi di corso per conoscere il lavoro e migliorare il proprio inglese. Un corso d’inglese che già sulla nave fu avviato e durò per tutta la traversata di trentacinque giorni sia pure intervallati con brevi soste a Port Said, ad Aden e a Perth.
Mi resi conto solo anni dopo che la mia esperienza da emigrante, per quanto ne posso sapere, fu il primo tentativo in Italia per favorire una emigrazione qualificata essendo tutti i miei compagni di cordata laureati e diplomati. A Melbourne mi ero, invece, imbattuto in molti miei compatrioti partiti alla rinfusa, che non conoscevano una sola parola d’inglese e più dell’italiano parlavano un dialetto del loro paese d’origine che non riuscivo a comprendere del tutto. Ne conseguì un difficile rapporto con gli autoctoni e che talvolta sfociavano in fatti di sangue. Taluni giovani australiani erano pronti a far uso delle catene delle biciclette per aggredire una persona che attraversava un parco di sera ritornando dal lavoro e che rispondeva alla loro chiamata “paisà” per essere certi che fosse un italiano. E siccome tali fatti si ripetevano il “paisà” finì con il difendersi con il coltello e lascio immaginare le polemiche giornalistiche che ne seguirono con venature razziste. E noi che ci sentivamo più istruiti e pronti ad integrarci nell’ambiente locale venivamo, in pratica, accolti con diffidenza solo perché eravamo italiani, di quelli che fanno uso del “coltello” e quando vanno nei pub per bere una birra sono tanto morigerati da non ubriacarsi. La stessa discriminazione si ripeteva sul posto di lavoro e siccome eravamo in venti a fare lo stesso lavoro nelle stazioni di Melbourne fu inevitabile che spuntarono dei contrasti. In questo frangente ci parve legittimo coinvolgere il consolato italiano ma con un nulla di fatto. Alcuni di noi preferirono pagare la penale e scindere il contratto. Lo fecero, ovviamente quelli che avevano nel contempo trovato un altro lavoro: nella televisione locale, in banca e anche in proprio come importatore di prodotti orto frutticoli italiani. Restammo in pochi e fummo ancora di più vessati. Perché ne parlo oggi? Perché la storia delle migrazioni di massa è diventato un problema globale e se vogliamo governarla senza esserne travolti dobbiamo avere le idee chiare sul da farsi. Su questa falsariga continuerò a scrivere cercando le possibili vie d’uscita e in termini meno traumatici di quanto sta avvenendo ai giorni nostri. (Riccardo Alfonso)

Already, we are seeing the impact of AI on team and game analysis as machine learning is breaking down complex patterns of a match through the click of a button. We are entering an exciting time in sports and AI is going to have a huge impact on its future.” Worville’s session is titled, “Data-powered Football Stories – English Premier League.” Worville serves as a senior data analyst at Opta and OptaPro, a part of Stats Perform, and has spent most of his career analysing advanced data in football.

Advanced metrics like ‘expected goals’ have become commonplace analysis with fans wanting even more insights in their match coverage. I look forward to sharing some of the exciting data-driven stories from the Premier League today.” In addition to speaking roles at the Australia Sports Tech Conference, Opta data also powered the Sports Tech Cup Hackathon over the weekend (17-18 August).

Tre giorni alla scoperta dell’Australia

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 9 luglio 2019

Roma 9 luglio 2019 dalle ore 18 alle ore 02 Isola Tiberina (Piazza San Bartolomeo all’Isola). Si inizia martedì 9 luglio, con una serata evento a inviti e la proiezione del film, tratto dal libro The Women in Black di Madeleine St John, LADIES IN BLACK, la commedia diretta dal regista di A spasso con Daisy, Bruce Beresford, uno dei maggiori registi australiani, che sarà presente in sala. Alle ore 21,30 presso l’Arena Groupama verrà presentata in anteprima una storia di donne e immigrazione, sullo sfondo delle trasformazioni sociali e culturali dell’Australia. La vicenda è ambientata nell’estate del 1959, quando Lisa, che vorrebbe frequentare l’Università di Sydney, decide di cimentarsi in un lavoro estivo presso un grande magazzino. Qui lavora fianco a fianco con un gruppo di commesse che le permetteranno di formarsi, crescere e aprire gli occhi su un mondo che va molto al di là della sua esistenza protetta.
Mercoledì 10 luglio, sempre alle ore 21,30 all’Arena Groupama, si rimane sempre in Australia con l’anteprima internazionale di una commedia romantica TOP END WEDDING di Wayne Blair. Lauren e Ned sono fidanzati e innamorati, ma prima di coronare il loro sogno d’amore devono per ritrovare la madre di lei, scomparsa da qualche parte nel remoto nord dell’Australia, e hanno solo dieci giorni di tempo per riunire i genitori di Lauren e celebrare finalmente il loro matrimonio.
Giovedì 11 luglio il viaggio in Australia termina in bellezza con il famoso, irriverente ed esilarante THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT di Stephan Elliot, vincitore di un Premio Oscar per i costumi, sempre all’Arena Groupama alle ore 21,30, con ingresso gratuito. Gli eccentrici Felicia, Mitzi e Bernadette, nomi d’arte di Ralph, Tick e Adam, sono in viaggio, nel mezzo del deserto australiano, per andare ad esibirsi in un cabaret. Felicia e Mitzi sono due travestiti, Bernadette è transessuale. Il viaggio con un vecchio e appariscente torpedone rosa shocking di nome Priscilla è il pretesto per una esibizione del kitsch e di molti calcolati isterismi, con parentesi di umanità, tra disavventure, ricordi d’infanzia, confidenze, solitudini e legami indissolubili. Il film è stato d’ispirazione anche per un musical teatrale che è andato in tournée internazionale.
Le sale dedicate alle proiezioni, agli incontri e agli eventi collaterali sono cinque.
Nella sala Arena e Cinelab si accede con un biglietto a pagamento. La sala Schermo Tevere e la Sala dell’Assunta sono spazi gratuiti. Biglietti: La Biglietteria per le sale Arena e Cinelab è UNICA, si trova presso la Sala Arena ed è aperta tutti i giorni dalle ore 20.00 alle ore 22.30. Il costo dei biglietti è di 6 euro (Arena) e 4 euro (Cinelab)

Australia’s reigning Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series champion remains

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 14 Mag 2019

unbeaten while Dublin’s record weekend crowd of 145,000 witnessed the first-ever Romanian winner. With a dominant 30-point win Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland was the pinnacle of perfection in the women’s competition when the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series debuted in Ireland’s Dún Laoghaire Harbour. Canada’s Lysanne Richard took her second podium this season while Adriana Jimenez of Mexico completed the top three. Constantin Popovici, Olympic diver from Romania, earned the top score from the jury and put an end to Gary Hunt’s (GBR) winning streak from the 27m platform in one of the closest results to date. America’s David Colturi placed third in an event held with an adjusted format due to cold water.It was the immaculate execution of his final round dive, an inward 4 somersault half twist pike, that earned the 30-year-old his first ever 10, the highest possible score, in the World Series, becoming the 14th man to win an event. Following the Romanian’s second place at the season opener in the Philippines, World Series record winner Gary Hunt expects a very tight race for the 2019 King Kahekili Trophy. The ‘brilliant Brit’ fell short of his 36th win today by just 1.85 points, however he distanced himself from Colturi in third place by 78.6 points in the chilly conditions in Dublin Bay.From the 21m platform in the women’s category, 27-year-old Iffland extended her five point day one lead over her nearest rival from Canada to create a little piece of history. Her victory in Ireland equalled the longest women’s winning streak – four in a row across seasons – held by former champion Rachelle Simpson (USA).In front of 85,000 fans gathered on the pier on Sunday, Richard kept her title hopes alive by making it two podiums in a row while 2018 runner-up Jimenez defied the wind to secure her ninth career podium.After a weekend at the season’s most northerly and newest location in Ireland the cliff diving elite will travel to the sport’s European home in Polignano a Mare, Italy. In the town where houses rise from the rocks, the athletes will dive from a private rooftop terrace in just three weeks’.
Since 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has provided a platform for aesthetic free-falls and dives of ever growing complexity, spotlighting the sport’s finest athletes as well as the most promising talents and in 2014 it introduced a Women’s World Series. In its 11th season, the sport’s best athletes will once again leap, twist and somersault from breathtaking heights with no protection, except their concentration, skill and physical control during seven demanding competitions around the world. Between April and September, this pure extreme sport will hit waters in natural and urban environments as well as remote and iconic venues at oceans and rivers across Asia, Europe and the Middle East to crown two new champions.

Tilray® Announces Support of Two New Clinical Research Studies in Australia and Canada

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 aprile 2019

Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), a global leader in cannabis research and production, today announced its support of two new clinical studies: a pilot study led by Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) in Melbourne, to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a larger randomized placebo-controlled trial of cannabis extract as a form of treatment for reducing Severe Behavioral Problems (SBP) in pediatric patients with Intellectual Disabilities (ID); and a study with McGill University Health Centre’s Division of Infectious Diseases and Chronic Viral Illness, to examine the effectiveness of medical cannabis on immune activation in People Living with HIV.“Tilray is at the forefront of clinical research in the medical cannabis field and we’re very proud to support two groundbreaking studies that have potential to identify more indications in which medical cannabis can benefit patients in-need,” says Philippe Lucas, VP of Global Patient Research and Access, Tilray. “We are committed to advancing cannabinoid-based science to further understand the potential benefits of medical cannabis as a treatment option among these critical patient populations. There is a serious need for more clinical data in our field, and we are proud to support research like this around the world.”Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Australia:Over 50,000 youth in Australia today have Intellectual Disability with Severe Behavioral Problems such as irritability, aggression, and self-injury. Anti-psychotic and other psychotropic medications are prescribed for half of these patients in Australia, despite limited evidence for their efficacy and a high risk of serious side-effects, including weight gain, metabolic syndrome and extrapyramidal movement disorders. Polypharmacy and off-label prescribing are common in these patients, and drugs are sometimes added to treat side effects. Novel interventions are urgently needed for this highly vulnerable patient group. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians have highlighted the need for further research into the therapeutic uses of cannabinoids in youth. There is intense interest from parents and physicians in medical cannabis as a treatment for SBP in youth with ID. Research to date suggests that CBD and other cannabis extracts, have had fewer reported side-effects than anti-psychotic medications; however, there is currently insufficient evidence to inform its use in treating SBP. MCRI is among the first institutions to conduct research specifically testing the effectiveness of CBD on patients with intellectual disabilities to reduce severe behavioral problems.
