Premiere de la película ‘CORAZÓN DE PADRE’ en la Basílica de la Sagrada Familia de Barcelona

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 14 marzo 2022

El próximo martes 15 de marzo, la Basílica de la Sagrada Familia de Barcelona será escenario de la PREMIER de “Corazón de Padre”, un documental de Goya Producciones que redescubre la figura de José de Nazaret, no como una figurita de Belén o un silencioso personaje histórico, sino como ese aliado poderoso en la familia para el mundo de hoy. Andrés Garrigó, director del largometraje, señala que “es muy significativo que la proyección del documental se lleve a cabo en el Templo de la Sagrada Familia; además, inicialmente Gaudí la pensó para honrar al santo, y la historia de este templo nos lo muestra. Por ejemplo, el 19 de marzo de 1882, festividad de San José, se coloca la primera piedra, y el año 1885 se inaugura la Capilla que lleva su nombre; luego, en 1958, también un 19 de marzo, el conjunto escultórico de la Sagrada Familia es colocado en la Fachada del Nacimiento.” Por su parte, Mn. Josep Maria Turull Garriga, rector de la Basílica de la Sagrada Familia, explica que la proyección en el Templo “es un hecho excepcional y tiene razón de ser, porque estamos celebrando los 140 años de la primera piedra”.Mn. Turull agregó además que este evento “es significativo porque terminamos de celebrar el año de San José que el Papa Francisco clausuró el 8 de diciembre pasado, y ese mismo día en Barcelona se bendijo e inauguró en la basílica la torre de la Virgen María. También, el próximo 19 de marzo, se clausura el camino de San José, una peregrinación por las parroquias dedicadas al santo en la Archidiócesis de Barcelona”.El documental, que distribuye en España European Dreams Factory y que llegará a las salas de cine de España el 18 de marzo, nos descubrirá facetas ocultas del esposo de María, entre las que destaca su incesante intervención, atendiendo súplicas de millares de personas en los lugares más insospechados del mundo.“Corazón de Padre” fue rodado en diversos países del mundo (Italia, Estados Unidos, Canadá, Perú, Francia, Filipinas, entre otros), donde los protagonistas de milagros nos cuentan historias que muestran cómo, San José, que trabajaba en su taller de carpintería y que vivió hace más de 2000 años, se sigue manifestando también hoy de manera extraordinaria. En España, el documental descubre la especial presencia de San José en Toledo, en Ávila y en Barcelona, donde se han filmado escenas tanto en el templo de la Sagrada Familia como en el Santuario de San José de la Montaña.

Traxens Presents Solutions for Port Industry at Smart Ports Barcelona

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 novembre 2019

Traxens, a company providing high-value data and services for the supply chain industry, announces today that it will present its smart asset tracking solutions at the Smart Ports Barcelona event, Smart Ports, Piers of the Future, November 19 to 21. Its tailored Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions are specifically designed to meet the needs of the port industry by providing near real-time insight into the end-to-end global supply chain. Traxens’ solution provides comprehensive, precise and timely data on cargo, through tracking logistic assets in transit anywhere in the world. Traxens’ patented breakthrough Internet of Things (IoT) technology brings improved efficiency and security, greater transparency and enhanced asset utilization whilst opening up new opportunities for all actors involved in the global supply chain. With Traxens’ solutions, ports can improve their efficiency and the interoperability of the systems with a trusted third party. For example, the Cargo Community System (CCS) manages traceability within the port area, but it also needs to capture information in the hinterland, and, in general, during the pre- and post-shipment phases. This is made possible with the Traxens solution; its objective is to improve the real-time information and predictivity of the flow of goods, to streamline overall port operations.More specifically, for export, information gathered on pre- and post-carriage and on the activity in the hinterland can help determine the ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) at port gates. It can also help optimize the use of different types of terminals and of dry port areas. The transit corridors and custom routes can be secured ahead of time. Lastly, Traxens’ dry container door-opening functionality can help with the fight against contamination or theft.Ports all over the world are increasingly looking for this kind of service. Traxens has signed agreements in recent months with some of the biggest ports in Europe. Late last year, it launched a pilot IoT project at the Port of Valencia (Spain) aimed at improving the operational efficiency of the port. In July 2019, the company also joined the French Smart Port in Med initiative as an associate partner. Traxens is the only IoT company supporting the association. More recently, Traxens set up a partnership with the Port of Rotterdam (The Netherlands) for the WeAre42 smart container project. Discussions are also ongoing with a number of major undisclosed ports worldwide.

Catalan referendum: Illegal entity

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 27 settembre 2017

catalanBarcelona. THE Catalan regional government of Carles Puigdemont is preparing to hold a unilateral referendum on seceding from Spain on October 1st, which it says will be legally binding. Catalans will be asked whether they want to form an independent republic. But there is a problem: Spain’s democratic constitution of 1978, which was approved by more than 90% of Catalan voters, gave wide autonomy to the regions but affirmed “the indissoluble unity of the Spanish nation”. Only the Spanish parliament can change the constitution. Mr Puigdemont’s referendum is therefore illegal, and Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s conservative prime minister, is determined to prevent it taking place.
Home to 7.5m people (16% of the total) and accounting for 19% of national GDP, Catalonia is one of Spain’s richer regions. It has formed an integral part of Spain since the 16th century (and of the Kingdom of Aragón before that), but it has its own language and culture. Until recently Catalan nationalists were content with home rule. Two things combined to increase support for independence. First, Spain’s Constitutional Tribunal rejected parts of a new statute that would have given Catalonia more autonomy. More importantly, nationalist politicians in Barcelona succeeded in deflecting against Madrid popular anger at the austerity that followed the bursting of Spain’s housing and financial bubble in 2009. Parties campaigning for independence narrowly won a regional election in 2015. Ranging from bourgeois nationalists to anti-capitalist anarchists, they are united only by the demand for a referendum, which they call “the right to decide”. Earlier this month they rushed through the Catalan parliament one law ordering the referendum and a second requiring, if the Yes vote wins and irrespective of turnout, an immediate unilateral declaration of independence. The Catalan government’s own pollster finds that while 70% want a referendum on the territory’s future, only 48% do if Spanish government doesn’t agree—which it emphatically does not. According to the same poll, support for independence is slowly declining, and now stands at 41%. Mr Rajoy is relying on the courts to stop the referendum, arguing that the rule of law is fundamental to democracy. The Constitutional Tribunal has suspended the two laws. The Civil Guard arrested 14 senior people, most of them Catalan officials, involved in organising the referendum, and has seized 9.8m ballot slips. Mr Puigdemont insists that the vote will go ahead. He is relying on popular mobilisation: tens of thousands protested against the arrests in Barcelona. But it is hard to see the vote being anything more than an unofficial consultation, similar to one held in 2014. Most supporters of “No” side won’t vote. If anything like the 2.3m alleged to have voted in 2014 were to turn out, Mr Puigdemont would claim victory.Behind the confrontations lies a deadlock. Mr Puigdemont does not have enough popular or external support to impose independence. But Mr Rajoy’s bet that time and economic recovery would calm Catalonia has proven to be mistaken. A majority of Catalans remain unhappy with the status quo. Their discontent demands a political, rather than merely legal, response. After October 1st, a fresh regional election is likely to follow in Catalonia. And the Spanish government has accepted that it will have to discuss constitutional and other changes to try to anchor Catalonia more firmly in Spain. Dialogue is essential, but in a climate inflamed by confrontation, it will be neither quick nor easy. (foto: catalan) (by The Economist)

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 settembre 2017

barcellonaBarcelona – Almirall has announced positive top-line results, which shows that Duaklir (aclidinium bromide/formoterol 400µg/12µg twice-daily) met the primary endpoints in the AMPLIFY high-level read-out, demonstrating a statistically significant and clinically relevant improvement in lung function in moderate to very severe stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients compared to each individual component (either aclidinium bromide or formoterol).The Phase III AMPLIFY study proves that the efficacy, safety and tolerability profiles for aclidinium bromide and formoterol were consistent with current knowledge. In comparison to tiotropium bromide 18µg once-daily, both Duaklir and aclidinium bromide monotherapy demonstrated significantly higher levels of bronchodilation during the night-time, whilst aclidinium bromide monotherapy showed non-inferior bronchodilation to tiotropium over 24 weeks.Eduardo Sanchiz, Chief Executive Officer at Almirall said: “These results represent a significant milestone for Almirall’s respiratory business transferred to AstraZeneca, as they support the previous regarding of Duaklir and will contribute to making this combination treatment available to COPD patients in the US”. Based on the positive results of the AMPLIFY study, AstraZeneca is preparing a New Drug Application (NDA) submission to the US FDA for Duaklir (aclidinium bromide/formoterol 400/12mg).The global collaboration between Almirall and AstraZeneca includes milestones associated to development, launch and future Duaklir sales in US. “This agreement has allowed us to evolve our respiratory strategy to maximise the return and value of our assets and capabilities while it will keep improving the financial position of Almirall and contributing to the company’s long-term growth,” commented Eduardo Sanchiz.Almirall entered an agreement to transfer to AstraZeneca the rights for the development and commercialisation of its respiratory franchise, as well as its pipeline of investigational novel therapies in November 2014. The franchise includes products such as Duaklir, the combination of aclidinium with formoterol (LAMA/LABA) approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as a maintenance treatment for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Local and Regional Governments from all corners of the globe celebrate International Day of Democracy with view to Rabat

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 19 settembre 2013

Barcelona. United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) will celebrate, along with the international community, the International day of Democracy taking place just two weeks before the World Summit of Local and Regional Leaders. As representative body of self-governing and democratic local and regional governments, UCLG seeks to increase the role of these institutions situated closest to citizens in the construction of Democracy. In the framework of today’s celebration to “Reinforce the voices of Democracy”, UCLG is inviting the international community and its members and partners to “Imagine Society, Build Democracy” during the Second World Summit of Local and Regional Leaders and 4th UCLG Congress that will address this topic in Rabat, Morocco, from the 1st to the 4th of October.After one hundred years of the International Municipal Movement, this Summit will be a turning point in re-affirming the agenda of cities in the 21st century, building and reinforcing Democracy with the involvement of local and regional authorities in the work that has been initiated on the future of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) post 2015 and on the definition of the new global urban agenda in the framework of Habitat III, in 2016.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 28 febbraio 2012

Barcelona, Spain (PRNewswire) Ideal for emergencies, international travel, and when power is not accessible, SpareOne has immediately become the world’s most usable cell phone. SpareOne™, the world’s only cellular phone that runs on a single AA battery, made its European debut today at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona. SpareOne provides up to 10 hours of talk time and 15 years (yes, years) of talk-ready stored power using a single AA battery (based on Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA battery, included with phone.) Because AA batteries are the most widely used batteries in the world, SpareOne has immediately become the world’s most usable cell phone, even in the absence of electricity.
SpareOne’s slim, lightweight, minimalist design makes it ideal for slipping into purses, briefcases, backpacks, and auto glove boxes – anywhere it might be needed when power fails or a primary cell phone runs out of juice. Equipped with an emergency call button (such as 911 or 112), SpareOne can access emergency services with or without a SIM card and transmit the phone’s current location. SpareOne includes helpful functions such as the ability to pre-program important phone numbers and auto text reply. Users may swap the SIM cards from their primary cell phones that have lost power, and continue to send and receive calls using their existing phone numbers. SpareOne also comes with a micro SIM adapter to work with iPhone SIM cards. Created by XPAL Power, the battery technology company behind leading portable power brands PowerSkin® and Energizer® Energi to Go®, SpareOne is a dual-band GSM cell phone with patented technology enabling it to be powered using any AA battery (Alkaline, NiMH or Lithium). “In addition to providing a vital lifeline during emergencies, SpareOne is a perfect back-up phone that you never have to worry about keeping charged,” said Alan Cymberknoh, SpareOne Project Director at XPAL Power.
