Christmas Special Integral Human Development «Steps on the path of good»

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 dicembre 2019

Merry ChristmasThe first proclamation, made by the angles of the birth of Christ, invites us to receive God’s love and to love him in return with the very love which is his gift. This brings forth in our lives and actions a primary and funda mental response: to desire, seek and protect the good of others. (cf. Evangelii Gaudium, n 178)
Il primo annuncio – fatto dagli angeli – della nascita di Cristo che ci invita a lasciarci amare da Dio e ad amarlo con l’amore che Egli stesso ci comunica, provoca nella vita della persona e nelle sue azioni una prima e fondamentale reazione: desiderare, cercare e avere a cuore il bene degli altri. (cf. Evangelii Gaudium, n 178)

A path towards the resilience of Syrian people

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 9 aprile 2019

A recent seminar held at the European Parliament in Brussels brought into sharp focus the situation and resilience of people in Syria, generating responses from diverse Christian voices and European Institutions. The event explored in detail possible, viable and legally durable solutions to promote the future normalization of the lives of Syrians.
The theme of the event was “The next day in Syria: A path towards the resilience of Syrian people” and the speakers touched upon topics including “humanitarian aid for all” and “reconstruction and resilience of Syria” in two consecutive sessions.
Hosted by György Hölvényi MEP and Jan Olbrycht MEP, Co-Chairmen of the European People’s Party (EPP) Working Group on Intercultural and Religious Dialogue, the seminar was organised by the Conference of European Churches, Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE), Committee of Representatives of Orthodox Churches to the European Union (CROCEU), and the EPP group in European Parliament.Mairead McGuinness MEP, First Vice-President of the European Parliament, made remarks about the theme in the introductory session of the seminar.
Metropolitan Athanasios of Achaia, Director of the Representative Office of the Orthodox Church of Greece to the European Union, spoke about the challenges faced by Syrians. “We are here to express our sincere concern in a spirit of solidarity in prayer, advocacy and practical support acknowledging our responsibility as Christians for our fellow human beings,” he said.“I believe that our efforts need to be supported by an inspiring global educational activity involving both parents and the youth. The European Institutions should take the initiative to set an example for the education system as a whole,” added Metropolitan Athanasios.Elsy Wakil, regional secretary of the World Student Christian Federation – Middle East and Program Director for Peacebuilding and Overcoming Violence was among the speakers. She highlighted the realities faced by Lebanon due to refugee crisis in the Middle East, and its impact on youth. “Immigration has become a phenomenon increasing year after year for the last couple of decades leaving a huge lack of opportunities for young people to build up and enjoy the country where they belong. It is no secret that Lebanon was not prepared politically, socially and economically to receive a huge number of Syrian refugees.”
Amidst these challenges, she said “it’s the time to talk about the rebuilding of Syria and return of the Syrian refugees to their country.” She highlighted ten points why however currently return of the Syrian refugees is unrealistic.
The discussions conveyed the significance of churches’ concern and work for the Syrian people in different areas such as education, healthcare, psychological-social and spiritual support, humanitarian aid and promoting their right to normal daily life in their homes.

A Faster Path to Pregnancy

London, (PRNewswire)OvuSense™ Takes the Guesswork Out of Pregnancy Planning. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 6 couples experience difficulty in getting pregnant and no doubt those couples are surprised when their anticipated pregnancy does not happen easily. So what steps can they take to help themselves? Firstly a woman has to establish whether she is ovulating. She then needs to know when she will ovulate as this is not always in the middle of her cycle. Even a woman with a normal cycle may ovulate at different times of the month; or may not be ovulating at all. To remove this uncertainty, and to provide women and couples with the information they need, OvuSense™, a novel fertility aid, has just been launched in the UK. OvuSense™ offers a reliable predictor of the whole fertile period by using a specially developed software programme that interprets information collected from the individual woman to give her individualised predictions. OvuSense™ does so weeks in advance. This allows women and couples to take control of their situation; to know when she is more likely to become pregnant. Each cycle, OvuSense™ in addition will reassure women that ovulation is indeed taking place; or give her warning if it isn’t so that she can ask for advice early. The system is consistent, reliable and accurate. Women who are participating in the clinical trial for OvuSense™ with Lead Clinical Adviser Dr Spyros Papaioannou MD FRCOG, have reported that they find OvuSense™ easy and comfortable to use.
The OvuSense™ system comprises two parts. The personal Sensor is made of implantable medical grade silicone and is shaped like a tampon. It is placed in the vagina before going to bed and takes 120 readings of internal, core body temperature overnight. Each Sensor lasts for three months. The Sensor is removed in the morning and placed on the second part, the Reader. The Reader features simple step by step software instructions, enabling couples to carry out home assessments. It is lightweight and portable, enabling the woman to take it with her when travelling or when visiting her doctor. The Reader constructs a personal profile throughout each month, identifies that ovulation has occurred and provides the woman with a prediction of her fertile period at the start of each new cycle.

Is it possible? Nature and Economy Together

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 Maggio 2009

The Venice Biennale  Preview: June 3rd, 5.00 p.m This exhibition is part of the Collateral Events of the 53rd International Art Exhibition – The Venice Biennale and has the primary objective of reopening the debate on the relationship between Nature and Economics, two very current topics that are of worldwide interest. The Single Exhibition unites two artists whose artistic pursuits have always confronted this theme, in their respective manners, in their highly-esteemed work, which has developed on an international scale for more than 30 years.   Marco Bagnoli’s Nature, broadly understood as the vital, scientific and speculative energy of Mother Nature, asks questions and seeks answers. The visual process inherent in Marco Bagnoli’s work is not revealed by its title: La Parola (come la Colonna ogni parola nel silenzio una colonna) (The Word (Like the Column, Every Word in Silence a Column) 1991-2009, displayed in Thetis’ luxuriant garden, provides a profound comparative analysis of Art as scientific and social spirituality and its relationship to man and the cosmos. The conflict between the internal and the external is the inexpressible secret of art.   The labyrinthine path followed by the viewer renders Parola undefinable; appropriating the “humus”, it interacts with the “topos”, reaching the dimension of the very step itself in the complete freedom of Time.  The viewer will find himself only through his own path. The magical sound reawakens the sleeper, embraces the whole of his nature and directs him towards the light: the dharma of the word. This is not a new experience. Only mystery, the mystery of Parola.

A path for financing smart economic development

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 Maggio 2009

The Commission on Climate Change and Development reported on its progress at the United Nations in New York and will also present its findings at the Swedish Embassy in Washington D.C. The Commission is addressing climate change adaptation and its links with disaster risk reduction. Since its launch by the Swedish government in late 2007, the group has met with governments and citizens struggling with the effects of climate change in Cambodia, Mali, and Bolivia. It will issue policy recommendations on how to strengthen resilience of vulnerable communities and countries, establish appropriate institutional and financial architecture for adaptation, and mobilize new financial resources.Developing countries are particularly exposed to the impacts of droughts, floods and wind storms as well as longer term changes in ecosystems. International negotiations have focused on reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere – with little success. Although all efforts must continue to reach agreement on implementing GHG limits, this work cannot blind governments to the need to begin to adapt to changing climate systems right now.One of the many recommendations within the Commission’s Progress Report is that funding for adaptation must go far beyond current official development assistance and that all donors honor their commitments of 0.7 percent of gross domestic product. The recent Bangladesh Adaptation Strategy for responding to natural disasters sets an interesting example.The Commission determined that knowledge of local impacts is still largely in the form of hypotheses and scenarios. While greenhouse gas reductions are measurable, it is more difficult to determine the success of adaptation and requires much more cooperation between institutions in different fields. These institutions can no longer be reactionary, as was the case after the food and financial crises of 2008. Also, existing institutions must be made as effective as possible rather than adding to the already proliferating array of institutions.The members of the Commission represent international and regional organizations as well as research, civil society and the private sector. Members participate in their personal capacities and include: Carlsson (Sweden); Angela Cropper (Trinidad and Tobago), deputy executive director for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); Mohamed El-Ashry (Egypt), senior fellow, UN Foundation; Sun Honglie (China), professor and head of the China Climate Change Expert Committee at the Chinese Academy of Sciences; Nanna Hvidt (Denmark), director of the Danish Institute for International Studies; Ian Johnson (UK), chairman of IDEAcarbon; Lash (USA); Wangari Maathai (Kenya), professor and founder of the Green Belt Movement; Ivo Menzinger (Switzerland), Managing Director at Swiss Re; Sunita Narain (India), director of the Centre for Science and Environment; Youba Sokona (Mali), executive secretary of the Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS); Bernard Petit (France), deputy director-general, Directorate-General for Development, European Commission; Margareta Wahlström (Sweden); UN assistant secretary-general for Disaster Risk Reduction and the secretary general’s special representative.

Find Your Own Path

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 24 marzo 2009

pathCostruita sul successo della global brand campaign 2008 , Asics lancia a gennaio 2009 una nuova campagna globale di consolidamento del brand. Oggi, ASICS è nel mondo del performance running il marchio numero uno. La nuova campagna consiste in uno spot televisivo, 5 differenti pagine stampa,  materiali per il punto vendita ed elementi on line. L’obiettivo: aumentare la conoscenza  del marchio e della sua unicità.   Il nome Asics è l’acronimo di Anima Sana in Corpore Sano, valore intrinseco nello sport secondo cui l’armonia della anima è l’armonia del corpo . Da questo ne deriva  lo slogan di Asics : sound mind sound body.   Per divulgare questo messaggio L’agenzia di Amsterdam Woedend! (“Furious!”) ha creato un nuovo concept: la strada immaginaria. “Running è libertà, immaginazione, Asics ti invita a trovare il tuo percorso, sia fisico che mentale, puoi correre per un lungo tragitto, o corto , dritto o complesso, la tua immaginazione non ha limiti”, spiega l’art director Lennart Driessen . “ Le campagne dell’ultimo anno sono tutte ambientate in un mondo bianco e oggi la gente inizia ad associare questo al marchio Asics. “La nuova campagna mostra le persone in questo mondo bianco ciascuna con la propria unica strada da correre. Il tuo corpo ti porta da un posto all’altro ma il vero viaggio è nella tua mente”.  Il Fotografo Ross Brown della Nuova Zelanda è l’autore degli scatti dei 5 singoli atleti, 2 uomini e 3 donne, in ogni loro azione  sul proprio percorso immaginario. Percorsi che vanno da infinite e congelate scale scolpite nel ghiaccio ad una spirale curva che ricorda la lama di un rasoio. Ogni percorso immaginario rappresenta il proprio luogo ideale per correre. (foto path)
