Antitrust: sospesi siti con meccanismo vendita buy and share

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 26 gennaio 2020

L’Antitrust ha sospeso alcuni siti che vendevano prodotti secondo il meccanismo di buy and share.”Bene, vittoria dei consumatori!” afferma Massimiliano Dona, presidente dell’Unione Nazionale Consumatori.”Basta con la versione moderna delle vecchie catene di Sant’Antonio, ossia con offerte commerciali vantaggiose, ma condizionate in realtà dall’adesione di altri consumatori. Peggio ancora se poi i prodotti non sono realmente disponibili e non vengono nemmeno consegnati” prosegue Dona.”L’E-commerce rappresenta l’unica forma distributiva del commercio in crescita, con incrementi delle vendite spesso a due cifre. Ma lo sviluppo delle vendite on line in Italia non ha ancora raggiunto i livelli di diffusione dei principali Paesi europei e questo anche perché, troppo spesso, viene tradita la fiducia del consumatore con pratiche scorrette. Da qui l’importanza dell’intervento di oggi dell’Authority” conclude Dona.

Regulatory Changes and Growth Set to Boost Reinsurers’ Share of Asia Risk

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 9 novembre 2018

In this episode of A.M.BestTV, attendees at the annual Singapore International Reinsurance Conference (SIRC) said market growth, combined with regulatory changes that emphasize solvency standards, should raise the amount of insurance premiums collected in Asia that is ultimately ceded to reinsurers. Click on to view the entire program.The hot topic at this year conference in Singapore: how to increase reinsurance growth in Asia, which contributes less than 30% to the world’s insurance premiums and less than 15% to the entire reinsurance industry.“The ones that represent the most potential are the markets that show the biggest economic growth,” said William Ho, head of reinsurance, Asia, MS Amlin. “That is where the potential is and is why so many of us reinsurers and insurers are trying to grow in this region.”Jayne Plunkett, chief executive officer, reinsurance, Asia, Swiss Re, believes that China will be the area that will offer the most growth.“I think we will see most of the growth coming from China,” she said. “Part of that reason is because the regulator in China has a very disciplined and proactive approach about building the marketplace around liability, agriculture and health.”

All EU countries must take their fair share of asylum seekers

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 ottobre 2017

europeThe Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday passed its proposals for a new Dublin regulation, the corner stone of the EU asylum system, including remedies to current weaknesses and creating a robust system for the future.The first countries of arrival would no longer automatically be responsible for the asylum seekers. Instead, the assignment of responsibility would be based on “genuine links” to a member state, such as family, prior residence or studies.
If no such link exists, asylum seekers would be automatically assigned to an EU member state according to a fixed distribution key, as soon as they are registered and after a security check and swift assessment of their eligibility for being accepted. This is to avoid that “front line” member states shoulder a disproportionate share of Europe’s international obligations to protect people in need and to speed up asylum procedures.Member states that do not follow the rules would face the risk of having their access to EU funds reduced.The draft report prepared by Cecilia Wikström (ALDE, SE) was approved by 43 votes to 16, with no abstentions. It constitutes Parliament’s negotiating mandate for talks with member states in the Council.Parliament’s lead MEP on the revision, Cecilia Wikström (ALDE, SE) said: “The European asylum system is one of the key issues determining how Europe’s future will develop. As rapporteur, my goal is to create a truly new asylum system, based on solidarity, with clear rules and incentives to follow them, both for the asylum seekers and for all member states”.
Next stepsThe plenary will be asked to formally confirm the decision by the Civil Liberties Committee to enter into negotiations during its November session in Strasbourg. Council has yet to approve its mandate.The Dublin system is the EU law that determines which EU country is responsible for processing an application for international protection. The right to apply for asylum is laid down in the Geneva Convention, which all EU member states have signed and which has been incorporated into the EU Treaties. The Dublin rules spell out how EU countries must fulfil this common, international obligation and share the responsibility for people in need of protection among member states.

Fighting terrorism: share criminal records of non-EU nationals, too, urge MEPs

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 31 Maggio 2016

europolThe European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS), which EU countries use to exchange information on the criminal convictions of EU citizens, should be extended to include non-EU nationals, Civil Liberties Committee MEPs said on Monday. MEPs also want the system to be used to check the criminal records of people seeking to work with children.The committee backed an EU Commission proposal to expand the ECRIS system to include information, of non-EU citizens by 45 votes to 2, with 4 abstentions. The new directive is a key measure under the European Agenda on Security and an important tool for fighting cross-border crime and terrorism.
“We need to restore public confidence that we are able to monitor who comes into the EU, and to find people who could represent a threat. Checking people against our existing criminal records databases, and making exchanging that information much easier, will go a long way towards showing that we can find those people who mean us harm, amongst the vast majority who do not”, said Parliament’s lead MEP on the file Timothy Kirkhope (ECR, UK), following the vote.MEPs also stress that member states should be able to use the ECRIS system to pass on information relating to terrorist offences or serious crime received bilaterally from a third country. Furthermore, they want the EU’s police cooperation agency Europol and border agency Frontex to be able to access the database, upon request and case by case, to perform their tasks.
Employers should also be able to request information about a person’s criminal convictions or any disqualifications arising from those convictions when recruiting him or her to a role involving “direct and regular contacts with children”, MEPs say. They add that member states should endeavour to provide similar safeguards with regard to persons who intend to work with disabled or elderly persons.
After the vote on the draft report, the committee gave the rapporteur a mandate to start three-way talks with member states and Commission.

Nuova golden share protezionista europea?

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 marzo 2012

Prima di dire bene o male nello specifico dei progetti della nuova golden share di cui si comincia a leggere qualcosa in questi giorni, e’ bene aspettare il provvedimento definitivo, tra l’altro annunciato a breve. Ma ci sono gia’ alcune certezze sulle quali e’ bene rilevare incongruenze che denotano come la liberta’ di mercato, e quindi la liberazione dell’economia dai condizionamenti e dalle limitazioni dello Stato, e’ forse ancora una chimera del nostro tempo… nonostante Mario Monti che di liberta’ di mercato e trust dovrebbe capirne piu’ di tutti noi messi insieme…
Vediamo queste nostre due perplessita’:.
– il provvedimento di ampliamento del potere di golden share arriva quando sul nostro Paese e’ in atto una procedura di infrazione da parte dell’Ue per non ave limitato i troppi poteri che lo Stato nazionale ha sulle attuali aziende sotto questo controllo: Enel, Eni, Telecom Italia, Finmecanica e Snam. E proprio oggi il commissario Ue al mercato interno, Michel Barnier, ha auspicato che l’Italia risolva la questione “in maniera definitiva e in tempi rapidi”;
– una delle poche certezze di questo decreto della presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri (DPCM) che dovrebbe ampliare questi poteri di veto dello Stato, e’ che gli stessi potranno essere esercitati se l’acquirente che potrebbe sconvolgere gli assetti societari delle aziende ritenute strategiche per la sicurezza dello Stato, siano soggetti esterni alla Ue. Si passera’, quindi, dall’attuale protezionismo nazionale ad un protezionismo europeo. In sostanza: sempre e comunque protezionismo. Cioe’ contro la liberta’ di un mercato che, stabilire a priori che possa essere accettabile solo nei confini Ue, significa avere una limitata prospettiva e qualche deficit di analisi sui movimenti di capitali e merci nel Globo.
Noi, che siamo in prospettiva per qualcosa tipo gli Stati Uniti d’Europa, lo siamo non perche’ abbiamo desiderio e necessita’ di una nuova Patria in quanto ci sta stretta quella attuale dello Stivale, ma solo perche’ crediamo che gli interessi di consumatori e produttori hanno bisogno di regole adeguate non per limitarne il raggio di azione e di recepimento, ma per far loro meglio fruire di opportunita’ che, nel 2012, credere che siano limitate all’Ue significa -per l’appunto- avere una limitata prospettiva economica. (Vincenzo Donvito, presidente Aduc)

Share our progress

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 25 dicembre 2010

Letter to editor. This time of year, Americans around the country are taking the time to exchange heartfelt messages with friends and loved ones, reflecting on the past year. They write of achievements and setbacks, of births, graduations, promotions, and moves. These messages allow us to overcome the miles that separate us. And they allow us to continue one of the most basic American traditions that has held folks close for centuries — the simple sharing of stories. And as families gather around holiday tables this season, we also have the opportunity to share the stories of the change this movement has achieved together. It is a narrative woven by individuals across America — in big cities and small towns, hospitals and classrooms, in auto manufacturing plants and auto supply stores. These are stories of rebuilding, and of innovation. Stories of communities breathing new life into old roads and bridges, of local plants harnessing alternative fuel into new energy. Stories of small businesses getting up, dusting themselves off, and beginning to grow again. Stories of soldiers who served multiple tours of duty in Iraq now coming home — and enjoying the holidays this year in the company of loved ones. These are stories of progress. In the coming days, as we gather with our loved ones at dinner tables around the nation, let’s pass them on. Let’s celebrate the spirit of service and responsibility that brought them to fruition. And let’s steady ourselves with the resolve to continue pressing forward.
Because the coming year will hold new challenges — battles that have yet to be fought, and stories of progress that have yet to be written. Take a look at the progress we’ve made in your area — and share the stories you read with your friends and family. (Barack Obama)

Piemonte share festival 2010

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 5 agosto 2010

Torino dal 2 al 7 novembre 2010 Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali. Piemonte Share Festival propone ad ogni edizione un tema particolare per ampliare la mente, affinare le capacità analitiche e ispirare la creatività.    Errori, mutazioni, fallimenti, disfunzionalità, discrepanze, incidenti, varianti impreviste, scoperte occasionali, estetiche dell’errore, scarto dalla massa, fallimenti progettuali, progetti irrealizzati, disastri, sbagli, imperfezioni, disturbi, appropriazioni, effetti collaterali lapsus, e flop.   Questi i protagonisti della sesta edizione di Piemonte Share Festival, che si dedicherà alla portata artistica e culturale dell’errore e della scoperta inaspettata. L’errore e i momenti di rottura che l’errore come scoperta imprevista hanno portato nella storia dell’umanità hanno una potenza creativa unica perché  rappresentano sempre l’emergere di un problema. Indicano una questione che necessita attenzione e questa attenzione suscita controversie, le controversie generano soluzioni e innovazione. Un punto di vista particolarmente interessante in questo periodo di emergenze globali.  In campo artistico e culturale, nella nostra epoca digitale, l’errore mantiene lo stesso ruolo di attivatore di mutamento e di valore?   Come nelle scorse edizioni una parte importante della nuova edizione del Piemonte Share Festival sarà costituita dalla grande mostra interattiva delle opere finaliste per lo Share Prize 2010. Oltre 270 progetti da 20 paesi hanno partecipato alla selezione per il premio, che fin dalla sua nascita si propone di scoprire, promuovere e supportare le arti digitali. La competizione internazionale è aperta agli artisti che usano le tecnologie digitali come linguaggio di espressione artistica, in ogni modo e forma.   E così  una giuria internazionale composta da Jurij Krpan (Lubiana), Andy Cameron (Londra), Fulvio Gianaria (Torino), e Bruce Sterling (Austin/Torino) dopo un complesso e approfondito esame di tutti i lavori ha finalmente annunciato i nomi dei sei straordinari artisti che porteranno i loro lavori a Torino e concorreranno per la vittoria dell’ambito premio. Il vincitore sarà annunciato durante la cerimonia di premiazione a Torino, il prossimo 7 novembre, nella sede del Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali che ospiterà tutto il festival.
Il web cinema mostra la sua forza unica con un remake digitale crowd-sourced del classico di Dziga Vertov L’uomo con la macchina da presa. Ogni fotogramma di questo caposaldo della cinematografia muta viene rigirato e montato da volontari su Internet, in particolare da torinesi, il cui Museo del Cinema rappresenta un centro internazionale per gli studi in cinematografia.
