La session de printemps 2019 des Collections Aristophil

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 12 aprile 2019

Paris. S’achève après sept ventes aux enchères orchestrées du 1er au 5 avril par les OVA (Opérateurs de Vente pour les Collections Aristophil ; Aguttes, Artcurial, Drouot Estimations, Ader). Avec un total de 11 179 839 €, le bilan de cette session de ventes est à nouveau très positif. Maître Claude Aguttes a précisé: « Les très beaux résultats de la semaine dernière illustrent la force et la stabilité du marché ainsi que la demande importante pour les livres et les manuscrits. La confiance des enchérisseurs envers la provenance « Collections Aristophil » est incontestable, quelle que soit la nature des œuvres en étant issues, des autographes aux tableaux modernes ; confiance d’autant plus soulignée par le nombre important (45) de préemptions par l’État français. Enfin, j’estime que le succès de cette session printanière repose sur le travail commun fourni par nos quatre maisons de ventes et je suis extrêmement fier de nos équipes qui travaillent sans relâche au bon déroulement et au succès de ces sessions de ventes ».

WCIT adopts Declaration of Amsterdam

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 29 maggio 2010

During the closing session of WITSA’s 17th World Congress on IT (WCIT 2010) in Amsterdam the Declaration of Amsterdam was presented by Minister Van der Hoeven (Economic Affairs). The Declaration of Amsterdam, subtitled ‘The Digital Road to Recovery’, spells out commitments to direct the use of ICT to stimulate economic growth and address key societal challenges such as climate change, healthcare and quality of life. To address these challenges in a full and timely manner, the intelligent use of information and communication technologies (ICT) is an important enabler. The Declaration provides a strong support for the development of ICT which is important because ICT is a crucial factor on the way to global economic recovery.  According to Minister Van der Hoeven “it is important to turn the Declaration of Amsterdam and its messages into action”. As an interesting example she mentioned the way the ICT-sector in the Netherlands together with the government wants to reduce the CO2 footprint of the ICT-sector. “More of these public private partnerships are necessary,” according to Van den Hoeven. To turn the Declaration into action the WCIT website contains an Action Forum to engage a wide range of stakeholders. The results provide input for a process that will continue beyond Amsterdam, towards the next WCIT in 2012 in Montreal, Canada. According to Henk Broeders (chairman ICT~Office) about 70 interesting projects have been submitted since the opening of the website, which can make a difference in making better use of ICT to fulfill its promises.  The Declaration of Amsterdam and its Call for Action is a first step towards implementing the Granada Ministerial Declaration and the EU Digital Agenda and will be recommended for support by the G20 countries at their summit in June 2010 in Toronto, Canada. The declaration is supported by among others: ICT-office, The City of Amsterdam, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Spanish presidency of the EU and the European Commission.

Il Million Dollar Quartet conquista Broadway!

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 15 aprile 2010

Dopo due anni di successi all’Apollo Theater di Chicago, arriva anche a New York l’attesissimo cast del musical “Million Dollar Quartet”. Il debutto la scorsa sera al Nederlander Theatre di Broadway con ottime recensioni da parte della stampa e del pubblico presente. Lo spettacolo è un’omaggio all’incontro tra Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis e Carl Perkins che la sera del 4 dicembre 1956 si riunirono alla Sun Records di Memphis per quella che sarebbe diventata una delle più grandi jam session di tutti i tempi. La narrazione dello spettacolo è affidata a Sam Phillip, fondatore della Sun Records ed interpretato da Hunter Foster, e si basa sulla storia di quel fortuito incontro, con qualche correzione alla storia per poter apprezzare al meglio tutta l’energia dello spettacolo. Ma ciò che rende questo musical un vero successo sono le canzoni, che ci fanno fare un salto nel passato, quando alla radio si ascoltava “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Great Balls of Fire”, “Hound Dog”, “Peace in the Valley” e non si poteva di certo stare fermi senza ballare. Robert Britton Lyons interpreta Carl Perkins, Lance Guest è Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis è interpretato da Levi Kreis, mentre Eddie Clendening è The King Elvis Presley. Il musical cattura quel singolare momento musicale di quando quattro grandi talenti si riunirono per diventare una vera rock ‘n’ roll band!I biglietti per lo spettacolo possono essere acquistati chiando il numero 02/45077407 oppure collegandosi alla sezione musical del al seguente indirizzo

My plan for real health reform

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 14 settembre 2009

Letter from Obama. I just finished laying out my plan for health reform at a joint session of Congress. Now, I’m writing directly to you because what happens next is critical — and I need your help. Change this big will not happen because I ask for it. It can only come when the nation demands it. Congress knows where I stand. Now they need to hear from you. The heart of my plan is simple: bring stability and security to Americans who already have health insurance, guarantee affordable coverage for those who don’t, and rein in the cost of health care. Tonight, I offered a specific plan for how to make it happen. I incorporated the best ideas from Democrats and Republicans to create a plan that’s bold, practical, and represents the broad consensus of the American people. We’ve come closer to real health reform in the last few months than we have in the last 60 years. But those who profit from the status quo — and those who put partisan advantage above all else — will fight us every inch of the way. We do not seek that fight, but we will not shrink from it. The stakes are too high to let scare tactics cloud the debate, or to allow partisan bickering to block the path. Your voice, right now, is essential. (P.Obama)
