WJC honors German Chancellor Angela Merkel with 2019 WJC Theodor Herzl Award

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 31 ottobre 2019

MUNICH – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder on Monday honored Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela Merkel with the 2019 WJC Theodor Herzl Award, which recognizes outstanding individuals who work to promote Herzl’s ideals for a safer, more tolerant world for the Jewish people. The award ceremony was held at the Jewish community center in Munich, co-hosted by President of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria & WJC Commissioner for Holocaust Memory Dr. Charlotte Knobloch.Thanking WJC President Lauder, Chancellor Merkel expressed her heartfelt gratitude for the honor of being chosen as the recipient of this award, saying: “It is humbling for me that I, as a German chancellor, can receive the Theodor Herzl Award today. Jewish life in Germany must be supported – and protected.” Recalling the attack on the synagogue in Halle over Yom Kippur, a “heinous crime that fills us with utmost shame,” Chancellor Merkel said: “These are deeply troubling developments; they are directed at Jews in our country, but by no means only them. Because they attack us all: Jews and non-Jews alike, everything that our country stands on, our values and our freedoms. They hit at the core of our shared existence, because they flow from a deep hatred of democracy. We must never accept the fact that people in Germany have to live in fear because of their religious convictions. We must do everything in our power to make sure they can live their lives free and safe. Antisemitism and racism do not begin with violent acts; it is much subtler. We must make sure not to wake up only after words have become deeds.”The Chancellor underscored the fact that hatred proliferates not just on the streets, but also online, a distinct catalyst to her government’s decision to pass a series of regulations later this week to ensure that incitement and aggressive hate speech are punished more severely.”I regard this award that carries the name of Theodor Herzl as an obligation never to be content with what has been achieved but to continue striving toward a better future in unison with our partners,” Chancellor Merkel said. “I want to encourage all of you to continue working towards a diverse and secure Jewish life in Germany – just as I will continue to do myself.” In presenting the award to the Chancellor, WJC President Lauder underscored the progress made in post-war Germany to rebuild itself and eradicate its dark past. “You, Chancellor Merkel, are the icon of this incredible success. You are the symbol of all that is good in post-war Germany,” WJC President Lauder said. “You are the guardian of democracy, the guardian of civilization and the guardian of Europe… you have always supported the Jewish community in this country. You have always stood by Israel … you are a German leader who has become a one-person dam. A dam against instability. A dam against irrationality. A dam against extremism. A dam against hate. A dam against racism. A dam against antisemitism.” But amid this great progress, WJC President Lauder said, “the ancient hate against the Jews is rearing its ugly head again all over Europe,” at violent levels unprecedented since 1945 – a hatred that demonstrated itself just 19 days ago in Halle, with the deadly Yom Kippur attack. “The problem is not a Jewish problem,” WJC President Lauder said. “It is a German one.” “We must stand united against antisemitism, racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia and homophobia. We must fight the haters of every people and of all people. And it’s up to all of us to take action, now,” WJC President Lauder said, laying out a number of steps that should be taken including police protection in all synagogues in school, increased and substantial penalties for anyone who commits an antisemitic attack, prohibition against hate speech of any kind against any group on the Internet, commitment by political parties to expel any member who engages in antisemitism, and the outlawing of all political parties that espouse a neo-Nazi ideology. “The German democracy must defend itself, defend its citizens, and defend its Jews from the dark forces now rising, on the extreme right and the extreme left,” WJC President Lauder said.

Australian Cohesity Partner Parallo Scoops Computer Reseller News Impact Award

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 4 giugno 2019

The CRN Impact Awards celebrate supplier-led Australian IT projects and technology innovators that make a difference for customer organisations. Parallo received the Modernising Infrastructure category award in recognition of its work in taking the ACU’s IT infrastructure to a modern platform supporting its goals for innovation, cost savings, efficiencies, and growth.The ACU was facing performance and capacity issues with its legacy backup and file services products. Further, the legacy infrastructure products were ageing, complex, and unsuited to next-generation architectures, including cloud. The infrastructure transformation project undertaken by Parallo aimed to reduce complexity, risk, and cost while remediating all legacy backup and file services offerings. Parallo deployed a next-generation platform from Cohesity that simplified the environment, enabled a cloud and disaster recovery strategy, and reduced total cost of ownership.Cohesity’s hyperconverged architecture helps organizations solve mass data fragmentation by consolidating all secondary workloads, including backups, archival, test-dev, file services, and object stores on a single web-scale platform that spans on-premises and cloud environments, managed via a simple, policy-driven user interface. Parallo architected and enabled migration of all backup and file services functions from five legacy management interfaces to the Cohesity DataPlatform, dramatically reducing complexity, risk, and cost, while enabling ACU to give life to its cloud strategy.
The saving was so dramatic that the new Cohesity solution total cost of ownership was less than the maintenance renewal cost of the five incumbent solutions. Further, Cohesity’s global deduplication technology removed redundancies and duplicates from data sets, putting in place an effective copy data management strategy. The lack of proprietary hardware associated with legacy systems changed the economics of the architecture significantly.Cohesity has also enabled ACU to save on data centre footprint costs, as well as costs associated with power consumption, storage, licensing, and management. In addition, it improved ACU’s Recovery Time Objective (RTO), since all backups are readily available on disks and not tapes, while it can also offload snapshots from its primary storage onto Cohesity, which freed up nearly 20 per cent of capacity, postponing the need to invest in more capacity for primary storage.

Consegna del Premio “Road Safety Award” di Dekra

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 ottobre 2018

Milano martedì 30 ottobre a Milano presso l’Enterprise Hotel in Corso Sempione, 91, a partire dalle ore 9.00. Due i temi principali che animeranno la discussione: il vuoto legislativo e i tanti problemi insoluti che ostacolano lo sviluppo della guida autonoma e i progressi compiuti per assicurare la mobilità a chi ė affetto da disabilità. La prima sessione di lavori sarà dedicata al tema “Guida autonoma: tra concretezza e passi da lumaca” e vedrà confrontarsi manager di primo piano nel settore della mobilità, leader a livello globale nel campo della tecnologia, esperti e rappresentanti del mondo associativo e assicurativo. Ad avviare il dibattito una provocazione: “Se il ‘sistema’ avesse sposato per tempo il cambio di passo del settore automotive, con benefici per la sicurezza e il traffico, l’auto senza pilota sarebbe già realtà. Invece, nonostante i costruttori abbiano già le tecnologie necessarie, non ci sono ancora le infrastrutture per promuovere il cambiamento”.
Spazio poi al tema “Disabilità. Se è l’automotive ad abbattere le barriere”. Il talk show focalizzerà l’attenzione su un mondo spesso nell’ombra, evidenziando i notevoli passi avanti compiuti dal mondo dell’industria, ad esempio, per consentire l’autonomia a chi ha problemi di mobilità, per esaudire i sogni degli appassionati delle due ruote e permettere ai non vedenti di “percepire” il paesaggio che li circonda. Ad approfondire questi e altri temi, senza dimenticare il forte gap sul fronte delle infrastrutture, ci saranno esponenti delle istituzioni, dell’automotive e dello sport motoristico. Assoluta novità di questa edizione sarà il Road Safety Award di Dekra che approda a FORUMAutomotive, affiancandosi al premio “Personaggio dell’anno per #FORUMAutoMotive” (conferito ogni anno a marzo), e che sarà assegnato ad Alberto Bombassei, presidente di Brembo. Proprio Bombassei sarà protagonista del “Faccia a faccia” con Pierluigi Bonora, giornalista e fondatore di FORUMAutoMotive che lo solleciterà sui temi di più stretta attualità sul fronte economico e automotive.

Giovambattista Spadafora forgia gli award per la Mostra internazionale del cinema di Venezia

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 4 settembre 2018

Venezia. Un connubio artistico per declinare, in diverse modalità, la contemporaneità tra creazione e cinema. Il maestro Giovambattista Spadafora, orgoglio della stessa terra che ha consentito a Gioacchino da Fiore di espandere il verbo della sapienza e della riflessione, sarà presente alla 75esima edizione della Mostra d’arte di Venezia. La kermesse, sin dalla sua prima edizione, ha inteso favorire la conoscenza e la diffusione del cinema internazionale in tutte le sue forme, tra spettacolo ed industria, in uno spirito di libertà e di dialogo.
Una visione operativa perfettamente condivisa dalla famiglia Spadafora che, ben prima che la Biennale concettualizzasse l’evento, dall’amenità della Sila, si dedicava alla forgiatura dell’oro e dei metalli preziosi, incastonando gemme e sogni dedicati all’infinita realtà della bellezza. Ed è in questo passaggio che i gioielli Spadafora continuano a rappresentare un punto di riferimento nell’oreficeria d’autore, contribuendo in maniera decisiva alla costruzione del concetto più autentico di “made in Italy”.Dal passato al futuro il passo breve. Ma la presenza dei gioielli Spadafora e del maestro Giovambattista, depositario di una conoscenza che ha travalicato la storia, alla Mostra di Venezia è il coronamento di un percorso che ha visto l’azienda rinnovarsi per interagire con il cambiamento, rafforzando sempre di più la propria origine.La firma di Spadafora, dal punto di vista ideativo e realizzativo, sarà apposta sugli award che verranno consegnati, tra gli alti, all’attrice Carolina Crescentini, alla regista Malgorzata Szumowska che ha vinto due volte il Festiva di Berlino, all’attrice Susanna Nicchiarelli che, tra gli altri, ha lavorato con Nanni Moretti. Ed ancora all’attore Michele Riondino. Un “red carpet” di valore assoluto che si arricchirà ancora di più con il divenire della mostra, fino alla sua naturale conclusione.Il legame tra arte cinematografica ed alta oreficeria, che la famiglia Spadafora considera nella propria ricerca verso la perfezione, si pone come un punto di sintesi essenziale. Una sinergia che trova ragion d’essere nel lavoro e nella dimensione spirituale della creazione che induce poi alla realizzazione del gioiello. Un cammino entusiasmante, dove ogni passo comunica il senso più profondo dell’essere artigiano.

Logic Biosciences Announces International Award for LBS-101 Program

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 2 agosto 2018

Logic Biosciences, Inc., a development-stage pharmaceutical company, today announced that its lead product candidate, LBS-101, has been recognized with an Innovation in Oral Care Award from the International Association for Dental Research (IADR). LBS-101 is a long-acting topical formulation of a novel salt of bupivacaine, being developed for oral pain from mouth ulcers (oral mucositis) secondary to chemotherapy or radiation therapy for cancer. The award also includes research funding to the University of Connecticut (UConn), to advance the drug development program. This funding is supported by GlaxoSmithKline, through an unrestricted grant to the IADR. Awardees are selected by a scientific review panel of the IADR. The award was given at the IADR conference held in London, England from July 25-28, 2018.Mahesh Kandula, CEO of Logic Biosciences, stated, “We are excited about this international recognition for the LBS-101 program. It is noteworthy that the panel of distinguished judges saw the scientific value of our approach and selected this program for this honor. Since our novel drug is based on a known pharmaceutical agent, we expect to have relatively lower drug development costs and a faster path to approval.”Rajesh Lalla, DDS, PhD, Associate Professor at UConn and Chief Scientific Advisor of Logic Biosciences, stated, “Oral Mucositis causes severe pain that often requires systemic opioids, which have significant side-effects. The development of a locally acting anesthetic that is more potent and longer-acting than the current standard of care would be of great value to our patients and could reduce the need for systemic opioids.”This program had previously also received funding from the SPARK Technology Commercialization Fund at UConn, where a novel drug formulation has been developed in collaboration with Distinguished Professor Diane Burgess of the UConn School of Pharmacy. A Phase I clinical study is being planned, tentatively for 2019.
