Nissoli a Boston nella culla dell’italianità

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 16 dicembre 2019

nissoli a boston“Sabato scorso, ho incontrato a Boston, alla presenza della Console Generale, Federica Sereni, il Club Augusta, invitata dal suo Presidente, l’amico Enzo Amara. E’ stato un bagno di italianità così ben conservata da riuscire a comunicare a tutti i veri valori tradizionali, quelli che formano la nostra identità e che sono preservati dalle attività associative. Ho rivisto persone che mi rendono orgogliosa di essere italiana all’estero. Mi sono resa disponibile a rappresentare le loro esigenze in Parlamento, a Roma, come del resto ho sempre fatto, ed in particolare vorrei che le Istituzioni prestassero più attenzione alle associazioni di italiani all’estero, perché, come fa il Club Augusta di Boston, mostrano il volto bello dell’Italia e fanno da ponte con la terra di origine.
Il giorno dopo ho avuto un proficuo ed ottimo incontro, sempre a Boston, con il Vice Presidente del Comites di Boston, Cav Domenico Susi, il Tesoriere del Comites, Alberto Mustone, Francesca Di Benedetto, District Manager Ital UIL, e l’amico Gianni Patane’, dell’associazione SAGB. Persone vere, impegnate per il bene della nostra collettività! I Comites, assieme all’associazionismo ed ai Patronati, assicurano un collegamento costante tra i connazionali all’estero e le Istituzioni, dal Consolato al Parlamento. Un lavoro importante di cui abbiamo fortemente bisogno e per questo ringrazio tutti coloro che si impegnano su questo fronte!”.
Lo ha dichiarato l’on. Fucsia Nissoli Fitzgerald, eletta nella Circoscrizione Estera – Ripartizione Nord e Centro America.

Boston’s First Blockchain Innovation Space Launches at One Beacon Street

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 marzo 2018

Bitcoin Market Journal, in collaboration with WeWork Boston, announced today the historic launch of Genesis Block, an incubation and collaboration space for blockchain technology companies. Located at historic One Beacon Street, on Boston’s Freedom Trail, Genesis Block will serve as the nation’s East Coast hub for innovative blockchain companies.Overlooking the golden dome of the Massachusetts State House, Genesis Block consists of more than a dozen blockchain companies, entrepreneurs, and investors, taking occupancy on the 15th floor of the magnificent office tower in beautiful Beacon Hill. Tours are available by appointment.
“The first block of a new blockchain project is called the ‘Genesis Block,’” explained John Hargrave, publisher of Bitcoin Market Journal, a website for blockchain investors. “It’s the seed that grows into a mighty tree. It seemed like the perfect name for our historic group of blockchain pioneers.” Indeed, Genesis Block is surrounded by American history: just down the street is the Granary Ground, the resting place of John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. Directly across the street from Genesis Block is King’s Chapel, the first Anglican church in New England. Every day, throngs of tourists will walk past Genesis Block on Boston’s historic Freedom Trail tour.
Bitcoin, the best-known blockchain technology, has fascinated investors since increasing in value from $400 in December 2016 to more than $13,000 one year later: a 3,000% increase. It has spawned a wave of new blockchain projects, including hundreds of cryptocurrencies and so-called Initial Coin Offerings, or ICOs.In addition to Bitcoin Market Journal and EtheraLabs, Genesis Block’s anchor companies include blockchain lab Level K, blockchain real estate firm Real Estate Chain, blockchain community organizers CoCreateX, and blockchain marketing firm Media Shower. They will hold free weekly meetups to educate the public on the use of blockchain in government, education, and investing.Genesis Block also joins a growing national trend of innovative incubators working collaboratively in shared workspaces, and attracting the largest corporations who are seeking out similar coworking communities in search of great talent, partnerships, and acquisitions, particularly in the blockchain space.

bostonBoston Omaha Corporation (NASDAQ: BOMN) (“Boston Omaha” or the “Company”) announces its recent $10 million equity investment in Dream Finders Holdings LLC (“DF Holdings”), the parent company of Dream Finders Homes LLC, a national homebuilder with operations in Florida, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, Texas and northern Virginia. In addition to its homebuilding operations, DF Holdings’ subsidiaries provide mortgage loan origination and title insurance services to homebuyers.
“We are excited to invest in Patrick Zalupski and the team at Dream Finders Homes after watching them grow over the last several years while earning attractive returns on incremental capital and maintaining a disciplined land option model approach to their business. We look forward to what they can accomplish over the coming decade in what we believe could be a more conducive environment for single family construction,” said Boston Omaha’s Co-Chief Executive Officer Adam Peterson. The investment consists of the issuance of new non-voting common units of DF Holdings, constituting approximately 5% of DF Holdings’ outstanding equity interests. The terms of the investment imply a $200 million purchase price valuation and provide for the potential issuance to Boston Omaha of additional non-voting common units if DF Holdings does not achieve consolidated net income in excess of $60 million for the 2018 and 2019 fiscal years combined. The issuance of additional non-voting common units would be based on the resetting of the purchase price valuation to $140 million. In addition, the agreement provides that DF Holdings may not take certain actions without the consent of Boston Omaha. Finally, all non-voting common units will convert to voting common stock in the event that DF Holdings conducts an initial public offering.

Integrare vitamina D non riduce i raffreddori

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 ottobre 2012

Nonostante alcune ricerche, condotte in passato, suggeriscano che la vitamina D rinforzi il sistema immunitario a rimuovere in batteri, un team neozelandese di ricercatori ha dimostrato che ricorrere alla sua supplementazione non previene raffreddori e infezioni delle vie aeree alte. Il dato emerge da uno studio, pubblicato su Jama, su un campione di 322 adulti randomizzati a ricevere o un placebo oppure una dose iniziale di 200.000 Iu per il primo bimestre e poi 100,000 Iu. Nel follow up di un anno e mezzo, non c’era stata una differ enza statisticamente significativa tra i due gruppi nel numero di episodi di raffreddore e altre infezioni respiratorie, che erano stati all’incirca quattro (3,7 nel gruppo trattato, 3,8 nel gruppo placebo). «C’è una pubblicità martellante attorno all’uso della vitamina D contro le infezioni e cose del genere» commenta David Murdoch, della University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand, autore della ricerca «ma l’unica prova convincente legata alla sua integrazione è che migliora la salute delle ossa. Il ritorno economico è notevole ma non c’è un supporto scientifico». Inoltre, è sufficiente una dieta equilibrata, come ricorda Jeffrey Linder dal Brigham and women hospital di Boston, in un commento che accompagna la ricerca, per assumere il giusto apporto di vitamina D: «Prenderne di più non aiuta».(fonte farmacista33)

Diving World Series 2011 in Boston

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 agosto 2011

A big cheering crowd, high level diving and a double touch down – Boston Harbour was the perfect setting for another glorious victory for English diver Gary Hunt, who secured his second overall World Series title today with a fourth consecutive win. In his homeland, American Kent De Mond came back to the podium after a hard season with only 2.15 points separating him and second-placed Artem Silchenko from Russia. This Saturday, cliff diving went urban: Instead of natural cliffs, divers used the newly installed platform on the cantilever roof of the Institute of Contemporary Art on Fan Pier, which is more than 80 feet above the water, for the tour’s sixth stop. A stoked crowd of 23.000 spectators surrounding the area around the venue watched the first East Coast stop in the United States in the Series’ three-year history. The 2011 World Series will conclude in two weeks’ time off the Crimean shore in Yalta, Ukraine.
New divers, spectacular locations and creative tricks in the air – the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has come up with a few innovations for the third edition in 2011. Between March and September, the world’s best high divers fight for the title of World Series champion in seven challenging competitions. For the breathtaking three-second flights between take-off and hitting the water smoothly from a height of at least 26.5 metres, extraordinary natural and demanding urban venues have been chosen: kicking off in March in Rapa Nui (CHI), the World Series returns to Mexico (Yucatán) in April. The first competition on European soil takes place in Greece (Athens) in May, followed by France (La Rochelle) and Italy (Malcesine) in successive months. After a trip to the United States (Boston) in August, the grand final is hosted by the Ukraine (Yalta) on September 4. Red Bull Cliff Diving competitions are judged by five international judges with scores awarded according to the degree of difficulty and execution of the dive.

Airtime for Boston

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 19 agosto 2011

Boston on August 20 welcomes 6th stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2011 America’s major sports are all represented by four highly successful teams. This weekend a new sport will touch down in the capital of Massachusetts. The world’s most prestigious series of cliff diving competitions comes to town as the athletes of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series climb to the top of the 85-foot-high Institute of Contemporary Art building on Fan Pier to put on an exhibition of their own. The vibe at Boston Harbour inspired the 14-strong-field of participants during the first training session. For the first time ever a stop in the World Series will take place in a major urban venue outside Europe. An urban building will be the take-off board, and Boston Harbour the entry point for the chosen 14 – wildcard divers Andy Jones and Kyle Mitrione, from the US, and the impressive Mexican, Jonathan Paredes, will complete the field of participants in Boston. The platform, built on top of the ICA building, beckons individual expression and creation by way of complex diving manoeuvres. Founded in 1936, the ICA’s mission is to exhibit contemporary art. Count on the divers to deliver unforgettable impressions. Impressive for the spectators and assessed objectively by five judges; among whom will be four-time Olympic gold medallist Greg Louganis. The American diving legend joins head judge Claudio de Miro, José Antonio Martinez, Jeff Arbon and Sara Massenz. After the season’s closest competition in Italy and four divers scoring more than 400 points, competition is fierce and the penultimate and potentially decisive stop might once again shake up the rankings: After five out of seven stops it means only seven points divide positions two to four in the overall standings, with position five tied between the Colombian Duque and Frenchman Cyrille Oumedjkane. Alain Kohl from Luxembourg follows in seventh, only six points behind the top six. Don’t miss the action starting at 4.00pm local time on Saturday, August 20.
