Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 gennaio 2020

Houston. La piattaforma di gestione di viaggi B2B4E, e la sua divisione Energy, Resources and Marine (ERM) hanno siglato un accordo globale preferenziale con The Visa Team, specialista nella gestione dei visti per l’industria petrolifera e gas, mineraria e marittima. La partnership dà vita a una innovativa piattaforma tecnologica e di servizi dedicata ai clienti CWT ERM, utilizzabile in fase di pianificazione e di ottimizzazione dei relativi business e delle procedure riguardanti i visti e i documenti di viaggio delle crew.
“I dipendenti dei settori energia, risorse e marittimo – in particolare gli equipaggi e il personale navigante – hanno esigenze molto diverse rispetto ai business traveler”, dichiara Raphaël Pasdeloup, Senior VP e Global Head di CWT Energy, Resources & Marine. “In azienda, i coordinatori delle squadre responsabili della mobilità adottano spesso serie di email e complessi fogli di calcolo per controllare le differenti necessità delle crew in materia di visti. L’accordo con The Visa Team ci vedrà integrare le tecnologie per favorire la semplificazione di queste procedure attraverso funzionalità avanzate, tra le quali analisi automatizzate del viaggio, aggiornamenti di stato in tempo reale e avvisi di scadenza”. “La nostra nuova partnership non solo si adatta perfettamente all’ecosistema della mobilità di CWT ERM ma apporta anche vantaggi diretti ai nostri clienti, snellendo e facilitando un processo estremamente critico legato al fattore umano”, conclude Pasdeloup.“I clienti di ERM necessitano oggi di una visione innovativa e di competenza specializzata su scala globale”, afferma Tracy Ramsey, Co-Founder di The Visa Team.“L’obiettivo di The Visa Team – aggiunge Erika Licon, l’altra Co-Founder – è integrare i servizi di ERM CWT fornendo soluzioni conformi, concrete e lineari per la gestione dei visti dei loro clienti, garantendo la massima tranquillità tanto ai viaggiatori quanto ai travel manager”. L’accordo globale di partenariato è attualmente disponibile negli Stati Uniti e si estenderà progressivamente all’Europa e all’area Asia-Pacifico nei prossimi mesi.

The battle stars of the middle east

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 2 ottobre 2011

United Arab Emirates crew wins Braun Battle of the Year qualification in Dubai on October 1, 2011 Nothing fits better to fashion stores, gold souks and a multicultural audience than b-boying. In the Emirate of Dubai, Middle East’s melting pot, 11 dance crews from as far as Jordan, Oman and Kuwait battled for the only group ticket available to represent the region at the grand final of the Braun Battle of the Year 2011 in Montpellier, France. The world’s seventh biggest shopping mall – the Dubai Mall – provided the perfect backdrop for today’s regional qualifier. All three levels of the ‘Star Atrium’ were crowded with people enthusiastically cheering the collectives on stage. The ‘Over Boys’ from the UAE break danced to victory and now get their chance at the world championship on November 19, 2011. Aladdin was on the stage, just as the Kings of Teheran and the Middle Beasts, but no one could beat the dynamic ‘Over Boys’. In a tight battle against the ‘Breakestra’ crew from Bahrain, earned the highest score from the three-headed judges panel. “I want to thank all the boys for fighting so hard and investing so much of their time in the past months and weeks. Thanks to the judges for making us so happy and thanks to all the people who came here today”, was the team’s head b-boy overwhelmed in the minutes after the official decision, jumping almost as high as the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, reaches into the sky right outside the event venue. The prize for the best show went to the ‘Middle Beast’ collective. They came all the way from Jordan and understood best how to entertain a jury of experts and at the same time a big crowd of spectators who left their buying spree aside just to support the boy crews fighting for the honour of being sent to the b-boying scene’s most important competition.
The winner of the MTV Show “America’s Best Dance Crew”, world-respected b-boy Ronnie Abaldonado, not only attended Friday’s special workshops to pass on his techniques and tricks, but was also part of the jury during the main event. Besides him, Swift Rock (GER) and Neekoe (UAE) critiqued the break-dancers’ synchronicity, stage presence, choreography as well as b-boying moves during their six-minute crew performances and the following head to head battles of the best four crews. The Middle East qualifier was the last of five main Braun Battle Of The Year qualifiers (including the USA, Germany, Italy and BeNeLux) taking place this summer. Crews from official qualifiers in Japan, Singapore, India, Brazil and South Africa among many others will also compete with each other for respect and bragging rights – and the honour of competing for the biggest prize in b-boying on November 19 at the Park & Suites Arena in Montpellier for the Braun BOTY finals. As well as the battles, there will be a series of gigs, workshops, 1vs1 performances, We B*Girlz Battles, talks, parties and much more.

“Battle born”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 agosto 2011

An enthusiastic crowd of more than 500 fans got to see outstanding performances on the stage, where all participating crews had to perform a six-minute show and were judged on synchronicity, stage presence, theme, music, choreography as well as b-boying moves. Easy Rock (Los Angeles), Lego (Miami) and Moy (Houston) could only give one group ticket to France for the winning crew. “Braun Battle of the Year US was an unbelievable competition. Just to beat The Squadron… It’s a definition of super crew, they are a bunch of spartans. We want to bring this back to the origins of BOTY: crew battles, crew shows, family. We will be trying to bring the title back to the US,“ say the lucky winners in a first statement. All night long the atmosphere was electric and whenever there were no shows or battles, everybody started battling themselves and forming “cyphers”. The competition format promised to show fierce battles, phenomenal athleticism, incredible flair and explosive group performances from the best b-boy collectives in the US. Even by Hollywood standards, the qualifiers promised to be pure box-office entertainment.
Thomas Hergenroether, organizer of the Braun Battle of the Year, break dancer since 1983 and founder of BOTY in 1990: “After three years break today’s event was a good foundation for the future. With Battle Born the right crew won, who will have to do a lot of practicing until Montpellier though to be able to battle it out against international competitors.” The event also featured stellar breakbeat and “old-skool” hiphop DJs. On the turntables: official Braun BOTY DJ Lean Rock (Boston), DJ Renegade (London, United Kingdom) and DJ Ervin (Los Angeles). The US qualifier was the first of five main Braun Battle Of The Year qualifiers (USA, Germany, Italy, BeNeLux and Middle East/Dubai) taking place this summer. The following week on August 27, German crews including 711, Flow Job and Battle Toys will slog it out for their chance at qualifying at an event at the Pavillon in Hannover.

On the rescue of captain Phillips

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 aprile 2009

I am very pleased that Captain Phillips has been rescued and is safely on board the USS Boxer.  His safety has been our principal concern, and I know this is a welcome relief to his family and his crew. I am also very proud of the efforts of the U.S. military and many other departments and agencies who worked tirelessly to secure Captain Phillips’s safe recovery. We remain resolved to halt the rise of piracy in this region. To achieve that goal, we must continue to work with our partners to prevent future attacks, be prepared to interdict acts of piracy and ensure that those who commit acts of piracy are held accountable for their crimes. I share the country’s admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew.  His courage is a model for all Americans.
