PPG Launches Paints with Purpose

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 25 maggio 2019

PPG (NYSE: PPG) today launched its Paints with Purpose campaign, which will showcase the many unexpected applications of next-generation paint and coatings technologies. These include paints that can cool the temperature of asphalt on a hot day to protect a puppy’s sensitive paws; coatings that can absorb sound or help reduce pollution; paint that helps self-driving cars see; and stain that can be applied even on a cold, wet day.
“When people talk about painting, they’re typically focused on beautifying a space in their home or making their mark on a new one,” said David Bem, PPG chief technology officer and vice president, science and technology. “But next-generation paints and coatings will do much more. From added safety, to enhanced comfort or just an easier way to apply our products, Paints with Purpose aims to showcase real-life examples of ways that paint can help improve our overall quality of life.” PPG will roll out the global marketing campaign over the coming months, highlighting these unique applications and their impact on everyday life.“The Paints with Purpose interactive campaign will bring to life these unexpected applications through a variety of experiential activations and digital storytelling,” said Bryan Iams, PPG vice president, corporate and government affairs. “Our hope is that people will be surprised at how new, innovative paints are helping to make their life easier, and more colorful.”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 14 aprile 2019

Almirall, S.A (ALM) was recognized this week with the Distinguished Corporate Leadership award by the American Skin Association (ASA).Ron Menezes, President and General Manager of Almirall, LLC received the award on behalf of the more than 1800 employees of the company from around the globe. He talked about Almirall’s corporate purpose of helping patients realize a healthy life, which aligns to the mission of the ASA. To illustrate this, he gave a moving presentation about a real acne patient whose successful treatment transformed their world.“This was a 16 years old male patient with severe acne who was hiding away from the world” mentioned Ron Menezes. “He wouldn’t meet the eyes of his dermatologist when he first visited him to get help. At his first follow up visit 4 weeks later he already had a significant improvement, but more importantly he had “come out of his shell” as his mother said. He was reaching out to friends again and was socializing, and she was relieved and happy to see that.” Concluding, Ron Menezes said “This demonstrates how by helping patients achieve treatment of their skin diseases we can transform their world for the better.”
The mission of the ASA is to advance research, champion skin health and drive public awareness about skin disease. Over the course of their 32 years history to date, the visionary leadership of the Association has supported the work of over 300 scientists and investigators by committing more than $50 MM to advance dermatological research. Their successful projects have included the establishment of a model research facility at Weill Cornell medical college and providing free instruction on sun protection and skin health through award-winning public-school programs.Dr. David Norris, University of Colorado and President of the board of directors for the ASA, who presented Ron Menezes with the Corporate Leadership award, highlighted Almirall’s contribution to the field of dermatology. “I’m impressed with Almirall’s spectrum of new treatments for important skin diseases, in some areas that we, as clinicians, haven’t had new treatments in for years. Through pharmacological innovation and strong commitment to global health care partnerships, Almirall is dedicated to providing the tools, knowledge and science to improve the health of patients worldwide”.The recognition of Almirall by the ASA is the latest achievement in the company’s goal of being recognized as a leader in medical dermatology in the US and globally.Peter Guenter, CEO of Almirall SA said “We are pleased to have received this award from such an esteemed organization. The ASA mission aligns with the new Almirall’s corporate purpose of transforming the patients’ world by helping them realize their hopes and dreams for a healthy life. We look forward to working with them, and the rest of the dermatology community, to make this purpose a reality”.

Death Senator Ted Kennedy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 27 agosto 2009

Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn this morning of the death of our dear friend, Senator Ted Kennedy. For nearly five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well-being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts. His ideas and ideals are stamped on scores of laws and reflected in millions of lives — in seniors who know new dignity; in families that know new opportunity; in children who know education’s promise; and in all who can pursue their dream in an America that is more equal and more just, including me. In the United States Senate, I can think of no one who engendered greater respect or affection from members of both sides of the aisle. His seriousness of purpose was perpetually matched by humility, warmth and good cheer. He battled passionately on the Senate floor for the causes that he held dear, and yet still maintained warm friendships across party lines. And that’s one reason he became not only one of the greatest senators of our time, but one of the most accomplished Americans ever to serve our democracy. I personally valued his wise counsel in the Senate, where, regardless of the swirl of events, he always had time for a new colleague. I cherished his confidence and momentous support in my race for the Presidency. And even as he waged a valiant struggle with a mortal illness, I’ve benefited as President from his encouragement and wisdom. His fight gave us the opportunity we were denied when his brothers John and Robert were taken from us: the blessing of time to say thank you and goodbye. The outpouring of love, gratitude and fond memories to which we’ve all borne witness is a testament to the way this singular figure in American history touched so many lives. For America, he was a defender of a dream. For his family, he was a guardian. Our hearts and prayers go out to them today — to his wonderful wife, Vicki, his children Ted Jr., Patrick and Kara, his grandchildren and his extended family. Today, our country mourns. We say goodbye to a friend and a true leader who challenged us all to live out our noblest values. And we give thanks for his memory, which inspires us still. Sincerely, (President Barack Obama)
