Verizon Turns on World’s First 5G Network

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 ottobre 2018

NEW YORK – The very first commercial 5G network on the globe goes live today. Verizon’s 5G Home network, providing 5G broadband internet service, is officially live today for consumers in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Installations of 5G Home began this morning for “First on 5G” customers in those cities, with a resident of Houston, Clayton Harris, becoming the first 5G customer in the world.
Built on Verizon’s proprietary, pre-standard 5G network, Verizon 5G Home is the next generation of home broadband internet service that blankets your entire house in super-fast Wi-Fi.
“The world’s first commercial 5G service is here,” said Ronan Dunne, President, Verizon Wireless. “We’ve formed incredible partnerships with many of the world’s leading technology companies, the international technical standards bodies, public officials, developers and our own customers to drive the ecosystem 5G forward, faster than most had predicted. And now, actual customers. It’s been an incredible journey . . . and we’re just at the starting line.”
“First on 5G” members – early adopters of 5G technology – get exclusive perks including 5G Home service free for the first three months (after that introductory period, current Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will pay $70 per month), free white glove installation and equipment, and early access to new services, including 5G mobility. 5G Home customers will also get YouTube TV free for the first three months and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra device at installation.
Verizon has led the technology industry with our clear focus on bringing 5G service to consumers as quickly as possible. That’s why our 5G Home service is built on our proprietary 5G TF standard; we are able to deliver results and a 5G network faster than waiting for the formal 3GPP 5G NR standard to be incorporated into network equipment, devices, chipsets and software. As our 5G technology partners bring that hardware, software, chipsets and devices to market on the 3GPP 5G NR standard, we’ll upgrade First On 5G Members to that equipment at no charge. When new network equipment is available and introduced, we’ll expand our 5G broadband internet coverage area quickly and bring 5G to additional cities.
To find out if your home is 5G ready, visit and sign up for all the benefits of being a “First On 5G” Member. You can also receive updates on when 5G is coming to your area and stay up to date on 5G-related news and offers, including the launch of Verizon’s 5G mobility service.

Niman Ranch to Double Farmer Network in 10 Years

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 12 settembre 2018

Niman Ranch, a leader in sustainable agriculture and humane livestock practices, today celebrated the 20th Annual Hog Farmer Appreciation Dinner in Des Moines by pledging to double their network and add more than 750 independent family farmers and ranchers in the next ten years. The company committed to supporting 1500 sustainable family farms in the next decade. The announcement will be followed by a recruitment effort to add additional farmers.“It took us 20 years to get here and now we’ll double it in ten. We have the opportunity to break away from being captive to the commodity markets,” said Jeff Tripician, general manager, Niman Ranch. “We’ve always said, ‘One farmer at a time’ and that is and was a victory for every rural community. Now we’ll do more. The market is ready and there are farmers out there that are ready for the stability that a premium meat company like Niman Ranch can provide.” As part of the announcement, Niman Ranch will begin a recruitment effort and unveiled a first of a kind Gilt and Boar Gift program for young farmers, recent college graduates and those that have served in the military. More than $300,000 in sows have already been made available to qualifying individuals who are looking to get started in farming, grow their herds, improve their genetics and ultimately make more money. The Gilt Stocking Program was part of 16 reasons to Be a Niman Ranch Farmer Partner that was unveiled before the dinner. Niman Ranch is currently paying independent family farmers approximately double the market and promising to do much more in the decade to come.“In a time of depressed hog prices, tariffs, trade wars, and a slow outlook for hog futures, we are going to grow,” said Tripician. “Our market is stronger than ever, our customers are more committed than they have ever been, and we must keep up with consumer demand.” Niman Ranch began hog production in 1995 with one farmer, Paul Willis, from Thornton, IA. Since that time the company has expanded to 629 hog farmers in 12 states. Today, the Niman Ranch farmer is significantly younger than the national average. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the average age of farmers has steadily increased to 58-years old over the last 30 years, contrary to the Niman Ranch farmer’s average age of 47.Part of the ongoing partnership between Niman Ranch and the farmer is a yearly scholarship for farm families and their children to go to college without significant debt so they can return to the farm. This year the Next Generation Scholarship Fund became a formal 501C3 and raised more than $150,000 from more than 60 donors – giving out scholarship awards to more than 32 students. Two of the students received $10,000 as part of a special Phyllis Willis Pioneer Award and the original Dave Serfling Scholarship.

Trusted Computing Group Releases Network Equipment Security Guidance

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 14 febbraio 2018

Trusted Computing Group (TCG) today announced new guidance and an architects guide to secure network equipment. At Mobile World Congress Feb. 26-March 1, TCG members Infineon Technologies and Juniper Networks will demonstrate these recommendations in Stand 6C4, Hall 6.
Recent attacks such as CherryBlossom and Marai have exposed some networks and data, resulting in significant data loss and impact to business. TCG’s new guidance and architects guide, developed with input from network equipment makers and their suppliers, offer designers and developers of network equipment, including routers, switches and firewalls, specific recommendations and best practices to secure against compromise. Strong hardware security enabled by the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) ensures that equipment is tamper-resistant and protected against a variety of attacks.The Mobile World Congress demo will showcase the Juniper Networks® SRX320 Services Gateway protected with the Infineon OPTIGA™ TPM. The TPM prevents physical and logical tampering of the router and securely stores an encrypted hash. If the router configuration is updated but not authorized, the router will not boot, thereby preventing a potential attack. This is just one of the 12 use cases described in the guidance document. The companies also will discuss implementation of the guidance and TPM in a webcast on Feb. 21, 2018.TCG recognizes that network equipment is shipped as a closed embedded system with security provided by the unit as a whole; equipment must boot and operate without manual intervention; and the equipment itself typically should not have the ability to hide or mask its own identity. As with many embedded and industrial systems, network equipment typically has a long life cycle. Recommendations offered by TCG and members include:Devices should provide a cryptographic device identity based on IEEE 802.1AR and use the TPM to protect keys. Cryptographic identity can provide a reliable way to identify remote devices for applications involving device management, configuration and authentication. The TPM can be used to protect confidential data, such as VPN keys in network equipment TPM-based attestation can offer assurance to the integrity of software running on network equipment Use of the TPM’s random number generator can enhance the strength of cryptographic protocols by providing additional entropy Implementing these recommendations can raise the bar for network equipment security and substantially increases the difficulty for attackers who want to undermine this security.

Manufacturers based in this region supply to international companies such as Apple, Asus, Canon, Foxconn, Huawei, Philips, Samsung and Sony, amongst others.
Zhu Yishu worked in a plant which manufactured ICT products principally for Japanese brands, such as Sony, Panasonic and Toshiba. As part of his job, he had contact with thinner, alcohol, solvent naphtha and other chemicals. In 2006, Zhu started experiencing pain in his back, bones and joints and was diagnosed as having acute leukaemia. In 2008 Zhu had a bone marrow transplant but suffered a relapse four years later. He now needs another transplant but the factory is refusing to pay for it. Zhu claims that his workplace was never inspected by clients and when officials from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) did come to inspect the plant, the manufacturer was notified before the visit and workers were told to conceal things.The research project was undertaken by two Hong Kong-based labour rights organisations – Labour Action China (LAC), and Labour Education and Service Network (LESN) – in collaboration with the Netherlands-based Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO). Fifty nine workers filled out a detailed questionnaire and another 16 workers took part in in-depth interviews. Some workers were the only worker to become ill in their factory. Therefore pseudonyms have been used and the names of the factories withheld.
Eleven of the 23 client companies named in this report responded to a draft version of this report. They stressed that they considered chemical poisoning a serious risk for workers but were not aware of concrete cases of chemical poisoning in their supply chains. Alejandro Gonzalez, Coordinator of the GoodElectronics Network: “It is about time that the electronics industry takes serious steps to come to a life cycle approach to the use of toxic chemicals. GoodElectronics is calling upon the electronics industry to meet the ‘Chemical Challenge’.”

Anche la Chiesa impara a stare sui social network

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 luglio 2016


Come esorta continuamente Papa Francesco, la Chiesa non deve aver paura di stare sui social network. Alle echo chambers, così tanto frequenti nell’ambiente digitale, bisogna imparare a rispondere con proposte di valore. Tutto ciò nella consapevolezza che nella comunicazione istituzionale non esiste più un portavoce unico, ma una pluralità di voci che fanno da rappresentanti.
Sono alcune delle riflessioni proposte dal nuovo libro di Giovanni Tridente e Bruno Mastroianni, entrambi docenti alla Pontificia Università della Santa Croce – La missione digitale. Comunicazione della Chiesa e social media –, che si avvale, tra gli altri, dei contributi di Daniele Chieffi, social media manager di ENI, e Daniele Bellasio, responsabile de effetti, come spiegano gli autori, il volume non è rivolto solo agli addetti ai lavori ma a chiunque voglia fare della sua presenza online un’occasione per cooperare al bene comune. Questo perché la comunicazione non è più solo per i professionisti del settore (giornalisti e comunicatori) ma qualcosa a cui ciascuno contribuisce con la sua vita in Rete.Se è dunque vero che il Web è passato da essere un semplice strumento a un ambiente da abitare, tutti (educatori, genitori, artisti, ecclesiastici, religiosi, volontari…) sono chiamati a dare il loro apporto per costruire legami, incontrare persone e arricchire le proprie esperienze.L’approccio dei saggi che compongono l’edizione è di tipo propositivo. Non si analizzano infatti pericoli e rischi che la tecnologia digitale porta con sé, ma si parte dal presupposto inverso, e cioè che ogni nuovo scenario di comunicazione – coinvolgendo donne e uomini – porta con sé le luci e le ombre della condizione umana, ed è proprio in considerazione della capacità di far luce che le ombre si possono dissipare.Più che “spegnere la tecnologia” o “mettere regole” per limitarne l’uso, il libro si domanda quindi “cosa c’è da fare” nel momento in cui i dispositivi sono accessi e connessi alla Rete. In sintesi: “puntare al valore delle relazioni per costruire, nella Rete, dei dialoghi davvero rilevanti”. (foto: tridente)

La generazione social vuole una casa pratica, a misura d’abitante, di design e con zona living

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 aprile 2016

CasafotovoltaicaHanno tra i 18 e i 34 anni, sono sempre connessi, twittano e condividono fotografie ed emozioni sui social network, hanno una concezione della casa “mordi e fuggi” e sono alla perenne ricerca di relazioni e nuove sfide: si chiamano Millennials e sono i nuovi protagonisti del mercato immobiliare. Cosa cercano e dove cercano? Qual è la loro casa ideale? ( ha tracciato una fotografia scoprendo che la voglia di rendersi indipendenti è sempre più forte: nell’ultimo anno è cresciuta del +8,3% la domanda di affitto e del +4,3% quella di acquisto da parte di giovani. Le città preferite? Come conferma anche il rapporto ‘Vita da Millennials’ del Censis, le città preferite in cui cercar casa sono quelle che si caratterizzano per maggior dinamicità dal punto di vista lavorativo e in cui si concentrano la maggior parte delle start-up innovative. Oltre a Milano – che nell’immaginario collettivo rimane sinonimo di vitalità, energia, innovazione e propensione alla crescita – i Millennials guardano anche a Torino, Bologna e Roma.
In città si sa, gli appartamenti sono più piccoli, ma questo non preoccupa i Millennials. Secondo l’analisi di, ben quattro su dieci si orientano su tagli piccoli come i bilocali, un chiaro segnale dell’approccio pratico ed essenziale dei Millennials, che cercano abitazioni con spazi progettati sulla base delle necessità di chi vive la casa. La casa ideale deve essere funzionale e preferibilmente di design: nessuno oggetto superfluo e nessuno spazio inutilizzato. “Dalle ricerche spariscono quasi del tutto solai e cantine, e anche il garage: soprattutto nelle grandi città, i più giovani si spostano con la bicicletta, usano i trasporti pubblici o il car sharing – spiega Alessandro Ghisolfi, Responsabile del Centro Studi – È una generazione in movimento che non teme di dover fare qualche scala con i sacchetti della spesa: l’ascensore non è più una priorità fra le caratteristiche dell’immobile ricercato”.
La casa è un luogo di condivisione dove ritrovarsi con gli amici e coltivare i propri interessi. Nell’ 80% delle richieste l’elemento che non può mancare è la zona living con cucina a vista, uno spazio ampio dove poter vivere appieno la convivialità di un pranzo o di una cena. La cucina si fonde con la sala da pranzo, ma non perde la sua centralità. Cucinare diventa un evento social, da condividere con le persone più care. “Come emerge anche dal rapporto Censis – prosegue Ghisolfi – questi giovanissimi sono dei Foodies, amano cucinare perché li rilassa e li diverte, e amano tutto ciò che è fatto in casa”
Comportamento dei Millennials nelle quattro città più innovative: Milano, Torino, Bologna e Roma. Se nell’affitto i Millennials che cercano casa a Milano, Torino, Bologna e Roma si orientano prevalentemente su bilocali, a prescindere dall’età, quando si parla di acquisto gli orientamenti cambiano. In questa categoria sono compresi, infatti, sia giovani studenti sia lavoratori che, superato lo scoglio della prima occupazione, sono alla ricerca della soluzione abitativa definitiva. I giovani tra i 18 e i 24 anni che vogliono acquistare casa, spesso con l’aiuto di mamma e papà, puntano ai bilocali, mentre chi è più cresciuto (25-34 anni) e decide di compiere questo passo cerca trilocali, con una camera in più, che in attesa di allargare la famiglia viene adibita a studio.

Vacanze invernali

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 10 novembre 2015

Sri LankaSri Lanka1Mare caldo, spiagge assolate e un territorio ricchissimo di storia, natura e tradizioni, tutte da scoprire. Sono questi gli elementi che fanno dello Sri Lanka, l’isola a sud dell’India che Marco Polo descrisse come “l’isola più bella del mondo”, una delle migliori destinazioni per le vacanze invernali al caldo secondo CartOrange. «La stagione secca in Sri Lanka va da dicembre a marzo–spiega Silvia Romagnoli, Travel Stylist CartOrange il più grande network italiano di consulenti di viaggio– e questo ne fa una destinazione davvero interessante per l’inverno, che piacerà sia a chi desidera rilassarsi tra mare e natura, sia a chi è interessato alla storia e alla cultura di una popolazione gentile e ricca di tradizioni. Di sicuro un viaggio in Sri Lanka è anche un viaggio spirituale, che arricchisce».
Sri Lanka2Sri Lanka5La proposta di CartOrange è particolarmente orientata alla scoperta degli aspetti meno noti dell’antica Serendib e al contatto con la cultura, la religione e le usanze locali. Si comincia visitando l’antica capitale Polonnaruwa con le sue enormi dagoba (reliquiari buddhisti) e le statue del Buddha, patrimonio dell’umanità. Si prosegue poi per l’antico sito archeologico di Sigiriya, per i templi di Dambulla, esempi fra i più alti di arte buddhista, e per Kandy, città regale dove si assiste a uno spettacolo di danze tradizionali. L’altopiano centrale è tutto da scoprire con un viaggio in treno panoramico: si Sri Lanka3Sri Lanka4visiteranno le piantagioni di tè e le cascate di Devon Santa Clara, Ramboda e Diyaluma. Dopo aver visitato il parco nazionale di Yala con i suoi felini, si arriva infine a Katagarama, con il suo santuario dove è possibile assistere al rito serale della Puja.«Queste sono solo alcune delle esperienze straordinarie che si possono vivere durante un viaggio in Sri Lanka –prosegue Silvia Romagnoli–. La natura offre occasioni uniche, come l’osservazione delle balene e dei delfini a Mirissa, l’escursione notturna per vedere le tartarughe a Rekawa e la visita all’Orfanotrofio degli elefanti a Pinnawela. E le attività sportive vanno dal rafting, anche notturno nelle notti che precedono la luna piena, alla navigazione in canoa e kayak per raggiungere templi sperduti, fino ai trekking diurni e notturni che toccano parchi nazionali e siti archeologici, da sorvolare anche in mongolfiera».Per prepararsi al meglio al viaggio, CartOrange offre anche due servizi esclusivi: la guida e-book La terra dei Re; testimonianze di un’antica civiltà e la video lezione preparatoria Sri Lanka, la lacrima dell’India.
Lo Sri Lanka è una meta sicura e attrezzata per accogliere i turisti. Il periodo consigliato per visitarla comprende tutto l’anno a eccezione di ottobre e novembre. (foto: Sri Lanka)
