Christie’s in Association with Whyte’s of Dublin

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 ottobre 2019

London – Christie’s, in association with Whyte’s Auction House in Dublin, will offer works from The Ernie O’Malley Collection, highlighted by five paintings by Jack Butler Yeats. Comprised of 100 lots, including early sketches by Yeats and work by the artists Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone, Louis le Brocquy, Colin Middleton and Norah McGuinness, the auction will form an anthology of Irish art from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Ernie O’Malley was an experienced officer in Ireland from 1916-22 who went on to publish two books detailing his experiences. The sale and international exhibitions provide an opportunity to discover his private passion for art and the relationships he developed with artists he encountered in America and Ireland. Highlights will be on view in New York from 23 to 27 October 2019, and London from 16 to 18 November. The full pre-sale exhibition can be viewed at the Royal Dublin Society from 23 to 25 November 2019, with the auction held in the same location at 6pm on 25 November 2019.Ernie O’Malley met Jack B. Yeats in Dublin at the home of the art enthusiast and historian Constantine Curran in 1937 where the two became friends, meeting and corresponding regularly. The Enfolding Night (1947, estimate: €500,000-700,000 / £440,000-615,000 approximately) depicts three figures walking through a barren landscape towards an intense light while a fourth figure is seated in the foreground. The painting is one of several existential subjects that Yeats painted in the late 1940s, as he approached his 80th birthday. The composition is theatrical, heightened by dramatic contrasts of light and shade.

Metis and Dublin Business School Partner to Deliver the College’s First Internationally Streamed Live Online Course

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 13 febbraio 2019

Dublin Business School (DBS), Ireland’s largest independent college, has partnered with leading data science training provider Metis on the college’s first internationally delivered live online course, a machine learning module taught live in Dublin by Metis’s New York City data science experts.Part of Dublin Business School’s new Master of Science Degree in Data Analytics, the 12-week Machine Learning module was custom built by Metis data science experts to teach students how to use machine learning techniques and skillsets to achieve business goals.One of the first of its kind in Ireland, the master’s degree program is accredited by Quality and Qualifications Ireland, the national agency responsible for qualifications and quality assurance in higher education. Metis, which was launched in 2014 by Kaplan, Inc. in the United States, is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training, an agency recognized by the US Department of Education. All Metis bootcamp and corporate training programs are designed and taught by expert data science practitioners, and Metis alumni in the US have gone on to work at top companies including Instagram, IBM, Spotify, Tumblr, Facebook, BuzzFeed, Deloitte, Apple, Tinder, CapitalOne, Uber, and many more.“Dublin has become a top European headquarters for technology multinationals, so the demand for data science expertise in the city is accelerating,” said Dr. Deborah Berebichez, Chief Data Scientist at Metis. “As Metis expands internationally to cities where data science talent is needed, we’re not losing sight of what we do best: providing dynamic, engaging learning experiences taught by top practitioners in the field.” Students from all over the world are increasingly choosing to study in Dublin, which is also home to Europe’s fastest-growing tech worker population. Dublin is set to overtake London as the biggest European data center market in 2019. Officially launched in January 2019, the first Machine Learning module cohort of thirty students includes learners from India, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Turkey. International students who receive master’s degrees from DBS are eligible to live and work in Ireland for two years.Executive Dean of Dublin Business School, Andrew Conlan-Trant, said, “We’re really pleased to commence this very exciting collaboration with Metis. The experience for students is hugely enhanced by bringing the deep expertise of Metis into the DBS classroom, and live online delivery has a very positive impact on engagement in the class. This is a real example of the strength of Kaplan’s scale and breadth and the benefit it delivers to students.”

Critical advice for families to help heart patients

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 19 Mag 2018

Dublin, Ireland 7 to 9 June. When a 50-year-old mother or father returns home after a heart attack, will the whole family adopt a better diet? Is it really necessary? This is an issue facing millions of families each year and one of the many to be addressed next month at EuroHeartCare 2018, the annual congress of the Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). The full scientific programme is now available for this year’s meeting, which will be held 7 to 9 June at the University of Dublin, Ireland, in collaboration with the Irish Nurses Cardiovascular Association (INCA). There is also good evidence that when patients bring a family member to appointments, they return home with more retained information between the two of them. But do they understand all of the advice from doctors and nurses? And do they think it’s important enough to act on? Nurses often discover that when patients return for appointments they haven’t been following some of the recommendations. Research will be presented at the congress to explain why there are gaps between what clinicians say and what patients do. “About 80% of chronic illness is caused by smoking, excess alcohol, insufficient physical activity, and poor nutrition,” noted Dr McKee. “So we need to keep emphasising the importance of lifelong physical activity. We’re past the stage of simply telling patients what exercise they should do. We now address the barriers patients face to starting and continuing physical activity.” A congress session is devoted to optimising physical activity to prevent first and subsequent cardiovascular events.2 Leaders in the field will discuss the use of technology, such as online education, to motivate patients to continue exercising in the long-term, after face-to-face cardiac rehabilitation has finished. Patients want life to return to normal after a heart attack. Another congress session focuses on what patients can do to prevent another event, avoid rehospitalisation, change behaviours and resume sexual activity.3 Dr McKee said: “Patients need to understand that they now have a chronic illness and are in an at-risk group. Many aspects of life change after an event and we will talk about how to start living again. Patients may have had a procedure to get them through this event, and the followup treatment will help prevent another.” The special needs of older adults with cardiovascular disease will be explored in a dedicated session, including why and how to reduce polypharmacy.4 “Between arthritis, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other comorbidities, older adults could be on 25 drugs a day,” said Dr McKee. “It leads to poor adherence, drug-drug interactions, and adverse reactions such as falls and delirium which can result in visits to emergency departments.” New initiatives will be discussed at the Congress to help clinicians review all of a patient’s medications and decide if any can be stopped. Dr McKee said: “We prescribe drugs to reduce blood pressure but they increase the risk of falls, so we then give drugs to prevent falls. It’s worth examining if both drugs are needed. Likewise, patients may have been taking some drugs for 40 years, and considering the side effects, the best option could be to discontinue them for their last decade or so of life.” Issues such as these make up one aspect of the congress theme, which is “Tackling the Complexity of Cardiovascular Care”. The theme also refers to the fact that care includes the periods before, during, and after hospitalisation, and encompasses a wide range of disciplines from prevention and psychology to surgery. Trends in cardiac surgery will be examined in a session encompassing re-do surgery in adults with congenital heart disease and replacement of atrial and mitral valves.5 Dr McKee said: “Many cardiovascular nurses work in a surgical environment every day and this session will tell them what’s new in this area.”

Asile et réfugiés: en route vers “Dublin IV”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 3 settembre 2016

dublinoL’afflux massif de migrants a révélé les faiblesses existantes du régime d’asile européen commun (RAEC) et d’un de ses piliers, le système de Dublin. Bien qu’il existe des normes européennes communes, les choses se passent bien différemment en pratique. Les taux de reconnaissance divergents au sein des États membres encouragent les mouvements secondaires irréguliers des demandeurs d’asile. Un mécanisme de partage des responsabilités et des coûts entre les États membres fait également défaut.Compte tenu de ces faiblesses et des profondes implications pour la sécurité et le fonctionnement de l’espace Schengen, l’Union européenne a lancé, au printemps 2016, un processus de réforme. Ce Policy paper d’Henrik Enderlein et Nicole Koenig, respectivement directeur et chercheur au Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, notre bureau en Allemagne, vise à contribuer à ce processus en proposant la “meilleure” solution pour une révision globale du système de Dublin, qui comprend des mesures dans les domaines de la protection des frontières, de la sécurité intérieure et de la coopération extérieure.Notre proposition repose sur la conviction que l’afflux constant de migrants constitue un enjeu européen indivisible appelant à une réponse collective. Cette réponse devrait être axée sur des normes communes et mettre en pratique de manière efficace les principes de solidarité et de partage des responsabilités.Concrètement, cette proposition repose sur cinq grands piliers :
Une harmonisation des normes de jure et de facto au travers d’un statut d’asile européen unique et d’une agence européenne pour l’asile autonome et renforcée.
Un partage des responsabilités plus juste grâce à un mécanisme de relocalisation qui tienne compte aussi bien des préférences des États membres que de celles des réfugiés.
Une protection complète des frontières extérieures de l’UE dans le cadre d’une protection européenne renforcée des frontières et des côtes et d’une coopération plus étroite dans le domaine de la sécurité intérieure, notamment au niveau de l’échange d’informations, de la lutte contre le terrorisme et de la coopération des services de renseignement.
Un meilleur partage global des responsabilités par le biais d’une aide étendue aux pays d’origine et de transit, d’un programme de réinstallation élargi et de voies d’accès légales plus accessibles pour les migrants économiques.
Une répartition de la charge financière efficace à l’aide d’un Fonds Schengen global comportant quatre programmes thématiques : Asile et Intégration ; Frontières extérieures ; Sécurité intérieure et Coopération extérieure.

Dublin revision: Civil Liberties MEPs call for ambitious reform and centralised asylum system

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 7 aprile 2016

dublinoAn upcoming proposal to reform the Dublin system must be ambitious and replace the current rules with a common distribution system for all EU member states to ensure fair and smooth processing of asylum claims, Parliament’s lead MEP on Dublin and Civil Liberties Committee Chair say.Welcoming today’s communication on migration from the European Commission on a revision of the Dublin regulation (which determines the member state responsible for processing an asylum application, MEP Cecilia Wikström (ALDE, SE) who will lead Parliament’s work on the legislative proposal, said:”Europe has recently witnessed an irresponsible race to the bottom among the member states that must be stopped. I hope that the European Commission dares to put forward a far-reaching proposal well in line with the view that the European Parliament adopted recently with a very large majority.A new EU Asylum system should be developed, based on a fair sharing of responsibility between Member States. The country of first arrival criteria should be removed from the Dublin regulation and replaced with a fair and mandatory distribution mechanism between Member States, using a formula based on population, wealth and reception capabilities”, she added. Civil Liberties Committee Chair Claude Moraes (S&D, UK) stated:”The revision of the Dublin regulation will be a key step to ensuring a compassionate and organised response to the biggest refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War. With this in mind, it is key that the EU has in place an asylum system that is centred on the principle of solidarity and responsibility sharing between Member States as highlighted in Parliament’s recent proposals for a holistic approach to migration.The Civil Liberties Committee stands ready to work to improve the EU’s asylum system in order to ensure that it takes into account particular migratory pressures faced by Members States on the periphery”, ends Moraes.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 gennaio 2016

dublinoMigration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos joined the Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday to debate the implementation of measures to tackle the migration and refugee crisis, including relocation and work in the reception “hotspots”. MEPs also raised the issue of the future of Schengen as well as the need for a review of the Dublin system.Commissioner Avramopoulos condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Istanbul and referred to the recent proposals on firearms and counter-terrorism. He called on Parliament to look for compromises on these pieces of legislation. Regarding migration and refugee flows, the Commissioner admitted the relocation scheme was not working and asked member states to step up their efforts. Several MEPs asked the Commission to focus on promoting legal ways for migrant and refugees to enter Europe and criticised the lack of progress by Turkey in controlling migrant flows and combatting smugglers.

Unaccompanied minors’ asylum applications: process where the kids are, say MEPs

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 7 Mag 2015

european parliamentEU asylum applications for unaccompanied minors should be processed in the EU country where the child is present, even if this is not where the child first applied, said Civil Liberties Committee MEPs on Wednesday. Processing where children are present is usually in their best interests, and avoids moving them unnecessarily between member states, say the committee’s amendments to the Dublin Regulation, which determines which member state should examine asylum applications.The amendments aim to clarify Dublin Regulation rules on which member state is responsible for processing the asylum application of an unaccompanied minor. The current regulation is not clear on this point, saying that it should be where the minor has lodged his or her application, but not whether this should be the country where the minor first applied for asylum or, in cases where more than one application is made, the country where the minor is present.”Unaccompanied minors are very vulnerable and the best interest of the child must always come first. I am extremely happy that the committee supports this view”, said Parliament’s lead MEP Cecilia Wikström (ALDE, SE), adding that “The position of the European Parliament is clear: children should not be pushed around between member states”.
The amendments stipulate that it is the member state where the minor is present which should be responsible for processing the asylum application, so as to avoid unnecessary transfers of children and ensure a swift decision on the application, in line with the overriding principle of the child’s best interest. The only possible exception to this principle should be if an individual assessment shows that it would be in the best interest of the child to go to another country, MEPs say.The committee voted to give Mrs Wikström a mandate to start negotiations with member states, by 50 votes to 3, with no abstentions. Talks are expected to begin shortly.

Heterogenous Networks (HetNet) Market Summary & Forecasts: Macro Cells, Small Cells & Wi-Fi Offload 2012-2017

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 marzo 2013

Dublin, (PRNewswire) — Comprehensive market size and forecast projections for the global and regional markets for heterogeneous network equipment: macro cells, small cells, Wi-Fi offload gear and backhaul. Carriers are struggling to cope with the explosion of data traffic on their networks, and this has resulted in over 100 commercial LTE network deployments worldwide, with nearly 350 carriers committed to the 4G technology. However, the additional deployment of LTE and legacy 2G/3G RAN macro cell sites and procuring additional frequency spectrum resources will not be sufficient to provide the capacity for the predicted growth in traffic. Consequently, together with their on-going transition to LTE, carriers have begun to deploy Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets’) to address these ever increasing capacity demands. HetNets are a gradual evolution of cellular topology, not a distinct network unto itself. Driven by this evolution, ARCchart forecasts annual unit shipments of 1.4 million macro cells, 5 million small cells and 11.5 million Wi-Fi access points by 2017, representing a global market value of $42 billion.

Phase III for Orazol (TM)

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 17 novembre 2010

Dublin, Ireland, (Globe Newswire) — After recent consultation with the FDA in November 2010, Merrion is preparing for its Phase III study for Orazol™. If successful, the Phase III study will allow a new drug application for Orazol to be made under the FDA’s abbreviated approval procedure section 505(b)(2) using a single Phase III study. The study will compare Orazol against placebo as an adjuvant breast cancer treatment with a primary endpoint of Disease Free Survival of patients with breast cancer. If approved, this drug would provide a new treatment, which could improve prognosis, in combination with existing treatments, for early stage breast cancer patients. Merrion has been focused on an oral form of this drug (zoledronic acid) for the bone metastases indication. However this trial would expand Orazol’s potential by allowing Orazol to be used for early treatment of breast cancer in addition to bone metastases for late stage cancer patients. Zoledronic acid has been shown to improve Disease Free Survival in large-scale Phase III clinical studies, involving thousands of breast cancer patients.  Merrion has previously received scientific advice from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) agreeing the approval pathway for Orazol in Europe for the existing bone metastases indication. Following a licensing agreement, Merrion would seek agreement from the CHMP to expand the use of Orazol to earlier stage breast cancer treatment.
Orazol, Merrion’s lead product, is a unique tablet formulation of zoledronic acid, made possible by Merrion’s proprietary GIPET® technology, and for which there are issued US Orazol patents to 2027. Orazol provides an ideal product profile to address the market needs, as a well-tolerated tablet formulation with weekly dosing. http://www.merrionpharma.com
