International Steering Committee dedicated to making Nairobi Summit a success

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 maggio 2019

The International Steering Committee (ISC) for the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 met on 26 April to discuss strategic planning for the Summit.The Summit aims to galvanize momentum and mobilize leadership in addressing outstanding and newly emerging challenges related to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action and develop a roadmap to end the unfinished business of the ICPD by 2030, particularly focusing on reaching the “Three Zeros.” These three results – which are at the heart of the ICPD Programme of Action – are embedded within the broader UN Sustainable Development Goals, and underpin all efforts to advance the unfinished elements of the ICPD agenda:
Zero unmet need for family planning information and services.
Zero preventable maternal deaths; and
Zero gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.
The Nairobi Summit is not a UN Summit in the traditional sense. It will instead adopt a format similar to that of the World Humanitarian Summit or the World Oceans Conference. In that vein, and to help spur action, the ISC members expressed their desire for the Nairobi Summit to adopt a series of global commitments focused on achieving the goals of the ICPD. Commitments are entirely voluntary, and the international community will discuss how to bring these to fruition at the Summit.ISC members expect the Summit will attract high-level political leaders and policy makers. They also hope that representatives from civil society organizations, foundations, academia, national parliaments, youth groups, and grassroot groups will take part to make the event as inclusive and dynamic as possible.

Sommetrics Selected to Present at the Respiratory Innovation Summit

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 maggio 2019

Sommetrics, a company providing products and services to improve sleep quality, today announced it has been selected to be one of five companies to present at the airways symposium of the Respiratory Innovation Summit in Dallas on May 17, 2019. This Summit is a yearly event held in advance of the American Thoracic Society’s International meeting which brings together clinicians, innovators and investors focused on new approaches for treating widespread and crippling lung and airway diseases.“This is an ideal venue for highlighting the clinical progress made in establishing our aerSleep™ system as a treatment option for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA),” remarked Dr. Richard Rose, President, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Sommetrics. ”It is particularly appropriate to discuss aerSleep™ in the context of airways disease since OSA is now believed to be the commonest chronic respiratory disorder worldwide – more prevalent than asthma or COPD. Yet, only a small fraction of individuals with OSA are currently receiving effective therapy. It is this extraordinary medical need that our aerSleep™ system addresses.”The aerSleep™ system consists of a comfortable silicone collar fitted on the front of the neck which holds the airway open via the application of mild external negative pressure delivered by a quiet, integrated vacuum pump. This system has a number of advantages over conventional sleep apnea therapies in that it is non-invasive, simple to use and maintain, highly portable and well tolerated by the majority of users. An earlier version of aerSleep has previously received market clearance from Health Canada.

The VIII Global Energy Prize Summit in Germany

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 aprile 2019

The VIII Global Energy Prize Summit will take place at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, on April 10, 2019. Under the heading “Energy in the new technological cycle” world-leading scientists, politicians and industry experts from 13 countries will meet to discuss the most pressing energy and climate challenges of today. Within the framework of this topic, a panel session and several round tables will be held at the Summit. World experts share the view that humanity is on the threshold of a new technological cycle, which entails changes in the main spheres of society. Undoubtedly, the transition to a new stage is not possible without efficient, reliable and safe energy. Are the world community and modern infrastructure facilities ready for large-scale transformations? The participants of the panel session “Energy in the new technological cycle” will consider the obstacles to transitioning to a new paradigm, the trends of the future of energy, and how humanity will benefit from this next industrial revolution. In addition, experts will identify ways to achieve universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy sources for all, which the UN defines as one of the key goals of sustainable mankind`s development. According to the UN, one in five people worldwide does not have access to electricity. More than a billion people, mostly in rural areas, suffer from “energy hunger”. The round table “Energy requirements for sustainable development” will consider the environmental, economic, and social aspects of achieving global energy goals and the role of international energy cooperation in this regard.The need to determine these factors today is dictated, among other things, by the fact that the scale of change and the complexity of implementing the solutions that the current industrial revolution will require is different from previous global transformations. This revolution is characterized by full automation of production, the growing role of robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as the increasing interconnection between people and machines. The introduction of cyber-physical systems and the digitalization of production processes will not only lead to significant changes in traditional industries, but also to the creation of entirely new sectors of the economy.Do we expect the revolution, or do we already live in it? What changes do we need to prepare for? Will robots and unmanned equipment be able to replace humans? Which projects of the future are already being implemented today? The experts at the round table on the fourth industrial revolution will answer these questions, among others, and consider the impact of the new technological reality on the energy sector. “Our generation is witnessing global technological changes that will affect all spheres of society. The scale of these changes is comparable to the invention of the steam engine, the first computer technology, the world wide web. We live in a period of transition. Technology is changing faster than ever, creating new challenges, including in the energy sector. We need to be prepared to accept the demands of the new era. For these purposes, it is necessary to develop a common strategy of action. I am convinced that our Summit as a permanent communication platform will help to find solutions to these issues and will contribute to the development of energy dialogue, in which the leading role is assigned to scientists-developers of advanced technologies,” said the Acting President of the Global Energy Association Alexander Ignatov.In addition to the discussion part of the Summit, the Global Energy Association will also present its new Global Energy Youth Program. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has previously expressed interest in the project and is already selecting its students to participate in it. The best researchers of the KIT will present their scientific work to the Global Energy Association`s experts and will receive meaningful assessments of their works. The authors of the best projects will get a chance to be one of the first to join the Global Energy Youth Program.

GC&E Systems Group to Host 2019 Converged Security Summit

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 16 febbraio 2019

3rd Annual Converged Security Summit (CSS) on February 28, 2019 at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CSS 2019 focuses on the convergence of information, cyber, and physical security systems and the criticality of viewing them as an integrated platform to be protected from evolving vulnerabilities and risks. With the Internet of Things driving the connectivity and integration of an ever-growing number of devices to our networks; the proliferation of IP-based physical security devices such as cameras and access control systems; and the storage of access lists, policies, and procedures on our systems, avenues of attack aimed at a multitude of enterprise assets is expanding at an alarming rate. Reliance on technology alone is not enough to secure these assets, and corporate executives are finding that responsibility for cyber security compliance falls squarely on their shoulders. Viewing information, cyber, and physical security as separate organizational or operational entities almost guarantees an organization’s inability to secure any of them. What must an organization do to protect its valuable data, systems, and people?
CSS 2019 brings together three thought leaders within the information, cyber, and physical security industries to provide their perspectives, insights, and recommendations regarding the best means to protect our organizational assets (information, intellectual and physical property, customers and employees). Additionally, more than 40 nationally-recognized, best-in-class security and IT vendors will be in attendance to demonstrate and discuss their unique products and service offerings.CSS 2019 is the not-to-be-missed security event of 2019 providing practical information that can be applied to your business or operations immediately while providing the opportunity to network and speak first hand with industry-recognized, subject-matter experts, and best-in-class vendors.

For the 7th year in a row, President Clinton presented the keynote address at the World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. In his speech, President Clinton commended attendees on the 273,077 lives saved over the last 7 years and asked participating clinicians, hospitals and healthcare technology companies to recruit others to join them. He stated, “I’m grateful that the movement just in the last year alone saved more than 90,000 lives. I’m grateful for the 4,700 hospitals at home and around the world that are part of this effort. I’m grateful that 89 technology companies have committed to share data to develop algorithms and predict dangerous trends. And I hope there will be more. I’m very happy that this is increasingly a global effort. The patient safety movement now has 35 regional chairs leading local networks across 50 countries.” He continued, “My most important message is to please stay active in this, please get more people active in it and don’t give up.”
After his speech, President Clinton sat down with the Founder & Chairman of the Patient Safety Movement, Joe Kiani, on stage and they discussed the state of the world today, the dangers of apathy, global warming and the opioid epidemic.
