300 Km nella natura più selvaggia e incontaminata del Circolo Polare Artico. Più di 200 cani da slitta addestrati, una manciata di guide esperte e un gruppo di persone comuni. Questo è Fjällräven Polar, l’avventura invernale più entusiasmante al mondo. 

 

Torna anche quest’anno Fjällräven Polar, l’evento di successo mondiale organizzato da Fjällrävene che ogni aprile porta una trentina di persone - provenienti da tutto il mondo - nelle regioni artiche scandinave per l’avventura della vita: guidare una muta di cani da slitta per 300 chilometri attraverso la tundra. I partecipanti non devono necessariamente avere esperienze precedenti, perché si tratta di un’opportunità che Fjällräven offre per dimostrare al mondo che, con la giusta attrezzatura ed un supporto adeguati, chiunque può affrontare una spedizione invernale nella natura, anche in condizioni estreme. 

 

Fjällräven Polar si rivolge infatti a persone "normali", con lavori normali e senza particolari esperienze outdoor, a cui offre la possibilità di scoprire quanto può essere fantastica la vita all'aria aperta durante l'inverno. Durante tutto il percorso gli esperti Fjällräven sono sempre al fianco dei partecipanti per aiutarli a gestire situazioni di cui non hanno alcuna esperienza.

Durante il viaggio, ognuno sarà chiamato a guidare la propria slitta, prendersi cura dei propri cani, farsi da mangiare ed allestire il proprio accampamento. 

 

Per iscriversi, i candidati devono presentare online un video o delle fotografie. Lo scorso anno sono state caricate 4.573 richieste ed il sito dedicato alle iscrizioni ha ricevuto quasi 3 milioni di visualizzazioni, mentre i candidati hanno raccolto un totale complessivo di circa 987.000 voti.

 

 

LA STORIA

Tutto ha avuto inizio nei primi anni ’90 quando il fondatore di Fjällräven - Åke Nordin - incontrò Kenth Fjellborg, uno dei più conosciuti sleddog drivers in Sveza, in occasione della più importante competizione di sleddog: la leggendaria Iditarod Race in Alaska. Åke, infatti, rimase talmente colpito dalla gara e dai suoi partecipanti che pensò di creare qualcosa di simile in Svezia.

Nel 1997 venne quindi lanciata la prima edizione di Fjällräven Polar e per circa una decade proseguì con il format di una gara, seguendo l’esempio dell’Iditarod Race. Ma è nel 2012 che, dopo circa sei anni di perfezionamento delle modalità di partecipazione, degli aspetti logistici e tecnici, il Polar ha assunto le sue forme attuali: non una gara, non un modo per mettere alla prova le capacità di esperti in sleddog, ma un evento per persone comuni. All’inizio sembrò un’idea folle portare una trentina di persone senza alcuna abilità ed esperienza nella natura selvaggia in uno degli ambienti più difficili del mondo, la tundra artica. Ma Fjällräven ha sempre creduto che con il giusto supporto, equipaggiamento e mentalità, questa sarebbe potuta diventare per chiunque l’avventura dei propri sogni.

 

E ha avuto ragione. L’evento ha avuto sempre più successo, in particolare grazie allo spirito dei suoi primi partecipanti che hanno dimostrato come con coraggio, consigli, la guida degli esperti e un equipaggiamento di altissima qualità sviluppato per resistere alle temperature più rigide, chiunque può accettare la sfida del Fjällräven Polar.

Nel corso degli anni, i partecipanti si sono trovati ad affrontare di tutto: dalle bufere di neve ai -30°C di temperatura, fino ai meravigliosi e soleggiati paesaggi ricoperti da una coltre scricchiolante di neve bianca. Per alcuni partecipanti si tratta di un modo per ricongiungersi con la natura, per altri di un’occasione per testare i propri limiti.

Oltre ad aver cambiato le vite di circa 180 persone dal 2012, Fjällräven Polar è diventato anche un successo virale online. Ogni anno centinaia di migliaia di persone visitano il sito Fjällräven Polar e diverse migliaia si candidano per quest’incredibile avventura.

 

 

IL PERCORSO

· Signaldalen: Il punto di partenza sono le montagne innevate norvegesi che, lasciate alle proprie spalle, danno l'inizio all'avventura nell'inverno selvaggio.

· Pältsa: Prima tappa svedese, gli epici paesaggi innevati continuano attraverso una delle aree più estese d'Europa di gelo permanente.

· Råstojaure: Il percorso prosegue su una delle antiche tratte commerciali Sami.

· Kattuvuoma: L'avventura continua sul letto del Torneälven River, ricoperto da uno spesso strato di neve e ghiaccio.

· Sevujärvi: L'opera della natura comincia a diventare più dolce e foreste rade iniziano a dominare la vista. Il traguardo è vicino.

· Väkkäräjärvi: Alla fine del percorso, sauna e cibo caldo aspettano i partecipanti, per concludere in bellezza questo viaggio entusiasmante.

 

 

COME ISCRIVERSI?

Il periodo di presentazione delle domande per l’edizione 2019 va dal 15 novembre al 13 dicembre 2018.

Anche quest’anno tutti i paesi del mondo sono raccolti in 10 macro regioni, ciascuna delle quali ha a disposizione due posti, uno per chi ottiene il maggior numero di voti online e uno per chi verrà selezionato dalla giuria.

Per inviare la propria candidatura, gli aspiranti partecipanti devono registrarsi sul portale dedicato dove sono chiamati a caricare un video o delle foto che spieghino al meglio il perché dovrebbero essere scelti. 

Il profilo che per ogni macro regione si aggiudicherà il numero più alto di voti sarà automaticamente selezionato per il Polar. Il secondo posto verrà quindi assegnato dalla giuria secondo diversi criteri, tra cui la qualità del profilo e della candidatura.

 

 

I CONSIGLI DI FJÄLLRÄVEN PER PRESENTARE LA CANDIDATURA

Un video è il modo migliore per mostrare chi sei ai giudici e al pubblico votante. Prenditi il tempo necessario per creare un video, anziché semplicemente caricare delle foto.  

Sii breve. Date le circa 5.000 richieste dello scorso anno, Fjällräven non avrà la possibilità di valutare tutti attentamente nel dettaglio.

Non è necessaria alcuna esperienza. Piuttosto che elencare tutti i viaggi e le spedizioni incredibili che hai portato a termine, mostra chi sei tu veramente.

Sii creativo! Fa’ in modo che la tua storia rimanga impressa nella memoria delle persone.

La condivisione è fondamentale. Le campagne di maggiore successo utilizzano i social media e quelli tradizionali per raggiungere il più alto numero di persone possibile.

FOREVER WARM

Fjällräven ha creato una collezione concepita appositamente per l’evento Polar e il clima a nord del circolo polare artico. Il Fjällräven Polar è il perfetto terreno di prova per lo sviluppo di indumenti robusti, capaci di far fronte alle necessità dettate da un ambiente eccessivamente freddo e spesso battuto dai venti. L’attrezzatura deve inoltre essere altamente funzionale per attività che prevedono un impegno elevato. Non si tratta solo di rimanere seduti e stare caldi, ma di attività che prevedono fatica e movimento.

Nel disegnare tutta la sua collezione di giacche invernali, Fjällräven tiene conto della sua esperienza in questo campo. Anche se non si ha in programma un viaggio ai poli il prossimo inverno, è possibile rimanere al caldo dentro una di queste giacche, novità o best-seller storici del marchio svedese.

SiGMA 2018 Launches in 2 Weeks

  [15-November-2018]  

TA'QALI, Malta, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

As a well-established staple on the iGaming calendar, it is unsurprising that the interest from the iGaming industry has been intense. In 2 weeks time the super-show plans to welcome 12,500 guests, including 400 sponsors and exhibitors and 200 speakers through its doors. To keep pace with demand, the sold-out MFCC floor space has been expanded and an extra day added to the Summit dates - SiGMA will run from the 28th until the 30th of November and will be held at the MFCC, Ta' Qali.

     (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/733430/SiGMA_Logo.jpg )

SiGMA will also be bolstered by a glamorous evening on the 27th - the iGaming Awards will seat a 1000 guests and pay tribute to companies who are shaking up the industry in Malta. Elevating the charitable event is Her Excellency, Marie-Louise Coleiro-Preca, President of Malta and tenor Joseph Calleja, one of the most recognisable faces in the opera world.

Following the black-tie event is a Poker Tournament. Held at the Portomaso Casino, the friendly-competitive event will offer an evening of relaxed networking to delegates looking to unwind before the start of the Summit.

SiGMA Pitch will make a triumphant return, providing a space for innovative young start-ups to gain valuable exposure. Finalists will gain a unique opportunity to win a space on the expo floor, score valuable invites to networking events and reel in potential funding and mentoring from industry veterans.

Since its inception, the flagship show has evolved from a local event capitalising on an untapped niche of opportunity, to a global influencer on the iGaming world stage. If last year's numbers are any prediction, 2018 is set to smash all previously held records, giving the company's ambitions plenty of space to play out.

In keeping with the global theme, SiGMA 2018 will host 6 conferences and workshops, several of which will tackle the evolution of the industry from a broader perspective, with highlights including a focus on pan-African regulation and sports gambling in the USA.

Starting on the 28th of November, the Regulatory Conference will cover important aspects of Malta's iGaming Act, as well as iGaming Law in a broader sense - including its influence on sister topics, such as AI. The Conference will feature prestigious speakers, such as Heathcliff Farrugia, CEO at the MGA, AI guru, Angelo Dalli, and an introduction from the Honourable Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta.

The first day of the show will also host a conference for Blockchain, with Mark Suwan, CEO of Blockchip taking the chair. Taking the panels to the next level is a line-up of elite guest speakers. Individuals such as Brock Pierce, an Advisor on Open Data Exchange and Joseph F. Borg, a Partner at WH Partners, will tackle complex issues, such as transparency and the right to be forgotten, blockchain investment and ICO regulation.

The second day of the Summit will see a further two conferences play out, the Conference for Payments, which is hosted by BitBay and the Conference for Affiliates and CMO's, hosted by InternetVikings.

The Payments Conference also offers a global perspective; from building smoother transactions in Sub-Saharan Africa, to navigating the licensing regime in Scandinavia. Other highlights include a panel on banking the unbanked and a feature on AML and social responsibility.

Chairing the Conference for Affiliates and CMOs is Richard Vikström, Founder at InternetVikings, who will also offer a welcome note and a talk on SEO brand protection. Other interesting topics include Humanism in Technology and a panel discussion on the Italian ban on marketing for gaming.

Kicking off the last day of the conference is the DGaming Conference, which offers an overview of a decentralised gaming industry, as well as creative AI solutions to optimise language. Hosted by DGaming Media, the conference will feature prominent speakers such as John Kamara, Director of Development at Global Gaming Media, and Marc Lesnick, President at Ticonderoga Ventures.

Rounding off the Summit is the final conference of the day - the eSports Conference, chaired by Ivan Filetti, Head of Business Development at Gaming Malta.

The Summit calendar will also provide delegates with plenty of opportunity for networking and entertainment. A fiercly competitive Hackathon has already drawn interest from developers through a generous $50k prize pool, whilst lavish dinners will feature throughout SiGMA. The Summit will also host a Crypto Cruise, and a phenomenal Closing Night event. A decadent Champagne Brunch brings things to a close on the 1st of December.

There can be no doubt that SiGMA has been a boon to the Maltese economy, operating in tandem with local growth and encouraging business to flourish on the islands. We're not resting on our laurels however, SiGMA 2018 is all set to carry on this tradition of quality and, as Malta continues to position itself as a haven for industry, can expect to continue outgrowing their limitations.

  • The high-level event will bring together over 100 government and business leaders and policymakers from the UAE and the Caribbean region 

The first-ever UAE & Caribbean Cooperation Forum, set to take place in Dubai on November 24th-26th, 2018, will explore potential to boost economic cooperation between the UAE and Caribbean region.

     (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/784608/HE_Reem_Bint_Ebrahim_Al_Hashimy.jpg )

Co-organised by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Economy and the UAE Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, the three-day forum will bring together more than 100 government and business leaders from the UAE and Caribbean countries.

High-level discussions, sessions and presentations at the forum will identify new partnership opportunities between the UAE and Caribbean countries, and place a strong focus on trade, investments, development and cultural exchange.

Announcing the forum, HE Reem Bint Ebrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, stressed: "As the UAE forges forward on its journey to development, it walks in the footsteps of its founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, perpetuating the values of human development, supporting and assisting communities around the world to ensure none are left behind in meeting sustainable development goals."

"The upcoming UAE-Caribbean Forum is a manifestation of the bridges we have built over the years with the countries of the Caribbean, where economic, cultural and developmental cooperation and partnerships come together to nurture mutual and general efforts to build a better world for future generations," she remarked. 

Furthermore, the UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund (UAE-CREF), launched during Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2017, marked a turning point in bilateral relations between the two regions in key sectors, most notable of which are clean energy and infrastructure - both vital for sustainable economic development.

On the sidelines of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2018 in January of this year, the AED183.6 million ($50 million) UAE-CREF announced the launch of the second funding cycle through partnerships with seven new Caribbean countries, which will substantially contribute to the growth and development of the renewable energy sector in Belize, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, St. Kitts & Nevis and St. Lucia.

"There is huge potential for Caribbean countries to boost trade with the GCC, Middle East, Africa and Asia, and the UAE is well-placed as a re-export hub that can provide them with easy access to these markets," said H.E. Hamad Buamim, President & CEO, Dubai Chamber.

H.E. Buamim noted that the UAE offers world-class infrastructure, strong logistics expertise and support, investor-friendly business environment, and attractive free zones, which are all important advantages that can help Caribbean companies expand their global reach. He added that the upcoming Forum would provide an ideal platform to showcase these strengths, as well as untapped business potential that exists in Caribbean countries.

The UAE & Caribbean Cooperation Forum will aim to generate interest in Caribbean markets among leading UAE-based companies and organisations such as Emirates Airline, DP World, Dubai Airports, Etihad Airways, Khalifa Port.

The forum will raise awareness about attractive investment opportunities within the Caribbean region's energy, infrastructure, agriculture, information technology and tourism sectors. In addition, the event will highlight key areas where the UAE can offer its expertise and investment to fill market gaps in Caribbean markets and address key economic challenges.

A series of workshops, entitled the 'UAE Technical Assistance Programme', will be hosted on the sidelines of the forum. These events will help Caribbean companies learn more about the UAE's economy and business environment, while participants will also examine strategies for fostering sustainable economic growth across both regions.

PRN: Acne Drugs Market Size Worth $5.9 Billion By 2025 | CAG 4.2%: Grand View Research, Inc. Thu, 15 Nov 2018 07:00:24 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503731.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503731.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Acne Drugs Market Size Worth $5.9 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 4.2%: Grand View Research, Inc.

  [15-November-2018]  

SAN FRANCISCO, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The global acne drugs market size is expected to reach USD 5.9 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 4.2% CAGR during the forecast period. Several factors such as emergence of biologics, unhealthy lifestyle, and rising disease incidence are anticipated to drive the market.

     (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/661327/Grand_View_Research_Logo.jpg )

Acne vulgaris is one of the most common dermatological disorders, affecting 9.4% people worldwide. Although the condition can affect people of all ages, it is most prevalent among teenagers. It has been found that the condition is prevalent in more than 85.0% people between the ages of 12 and 25. Acne can appear in forms ranging from comedones to cystic lesions, depending on its severity.

Retinoids and antibiotics remain the mainstays of acne treatment. Retinoids led the therapeutic classes in 2017, and it is expected to continue this trend through 2025. The therapeutic landscape is witnessing a shift toward combination treatment due to higher efficacy, convenient dosing, and fewer adverse effects.

By mode of administration, topical drugs currently dominate the market. Severe cases see the use of systemic medications such as oral antibiotics, hormonal agents, or other drugs. However, emergence of biologics (Gevokizumab and RA-18C3) will fuel the injectable route of administration. Biologics offer improved clinical advantage over conventional topical treatments since they target inflammatory mechanisms with disease modifying ability.

Discontinuation or termination of key pipeline candidates on account of unsuccessful clinical trials is a major restraint this market faces. Upon launch, Olumacostat glasaretil (Dermira; topical lipid synthesis inhibitor) was expected to be the first topical anti-acne drug with isotretinoin-like results without significant side effects. However, the drug failed to meet clinical endpoints, leading to discontinuation in March 2018. Similarly, SNA-001 (Sienna; silver nanoparticles solution) was deemed unsuccessful in two key trials wherein it was tested in conjunction with 810nm and 1064nm lasers in July 2018. Thesan withdrew TSN2898 from Phase II trials due to drug unavailability. Xenon discontinued development of XEN801 after the drug failed Phase II clinical trials.

Despite being one of the most common dermatological diseases in the world, innovation in acne treatment has been rather limited over the past decade. Drug companies are currently exploring novel treatment approaches including stearoyl CoA desaturase inhibition, melanocortin receptor antagonism, and anti-IL-1 monoclonal antibodies. Impending launch of late-stage pipeline products indicate a promising future for the global acne drugs market.

Further Key Findings From the Report Suggest: 

  • By type, inflammatory acne captured more than 50.0% of the market in 2017. Comedonal acne were ranked second-largest, among other types
  • On the basis of therapeutic class, retinoids led the market in 2017, followed by antibiotics. This trend is likely to continue through 2025
  • The treatment paradigm is shifting toward combination therapies and biologics. Combination products are gaining traction due to higher efficacy, convenient dosing, and fewer adverse effects
  • Topical products dominated the treatment landscape, based on mode of administration. However, introduction of biologics is likely to result in the growth of the injectables segment
  • U.S. dominated the major markets and is projected to maintain its lead through 2025, owing to rising disease incidence and ease of access to anti-acne products
  • Allergan, Bayer, Galderma, Stiefel, and Valeant are some key players operating in this market. Valeant is projected to lead the market in 2025 due to higher adoption of Retin-A micro as well as anticipated launch of pipeline candidates.

High Cost of Raw Material to Impede Demand for Organic Acids  

Despite the growing demand for organic acid and rising application in various industries, there are certain restraining factors that could deter the market growth.

Ahmet Günestekin’s Survey Exhibition "Reflection and Resumption" to Go on View Simultaneously at Vasarely Museum, Janus Pannonius Museum and Zsolnay Museum

  [15-November-2018]  

ISTANBUL, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Ahmet Güneştekin's survey exhibition Reflection and Resumption will be on view simultaneously at Vasarely Museum, Janus Pannonius Museum and Zsolnay Museum from November 15 to February 1. The exhibition is going to be one of the largest museum survey exhibitions which display founder of an art movement in art history and a contemporary Turkish artist together.

     (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/785382/Gunestekin_Art_Center.jpg )

Janus Pannonius Museum presents artist's works in a solo show, Vasarely Museum will display Güneştekin's works along with the iconic paintings of Victor Vasarely, founder of op art movement and Zsolnay Museum will present artist's new ceramic works with its permanent ceramic collection.

Embracing a diverse range of work and bringing together two prominent artists, the survey exhibition speaks of the dialogue between the works of Victor Vasarely and Ahmet Güneştekin and traces the genealogy of this dialogue.

József Sárkány, the art historian specialized in contemporary Hungarian art including the work of Victor Vasarely and Kemal Orta, art director of Güler Sanat Gallery of Ankara, will curate Güneştekin's show in Pécs.

Güneştekin applies techniques used by Vasarely in his op art paintings in order to enhance the three-dimensional effect of the forms created by perspective distortion. This metamorphosis of the form is further enhanced by colour contrasts; the contrasts of cold, warm, dark and light shades. For Sárkány, Güneştekin's art is more of a universal nature and he reacts to the most important questions of creation and humanity and gives place to playfulness in a different way. The illusion of a cosmic, inter-planetary space reigns on several of his works of art. At this setting the viewer can discover stories grouped around two tightly related topics. They are mythological stories about creation, the love of gods and humans, birth and rebirth.

Reflection and Resumption, accentuates the phenomenon of spiritual love, exploring the concepts of creation and existence. The cohesion and juxtaposition of the artworks in the exhibition space generate a pattern revealing the way artist investigates the elements of monotheistic religions, ancient Greek mythologies and Anatolian and Mesopotamian legends.

The survey exhibition endeavours to give the audience the opportunity to journey through the transformation of the idea of optical illusion within Güneştekin's work, Op art through a new lens and thus in new realms.

PRN: Recovery Partners GP Limited: UK High Court Issues 'Significant' Ruling Against Unlawful Pursuit of Billionaire's Assets Thu, 15 Nov 2018 06:37:57 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503727.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503727.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Recovery Partners GP Limited: UK High Court Issues 'Significant' Ruling Against Unlawful Pursuit of Billionaire's Assets

  [15-November-2018]  

LONDON, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The High Court in London has issued a significant ruling in a case centred around the recovery of billions of dollars of assets belonging to an East European businessman who died in the UK.

Arkady Patarkatsishvili died 10 years ago at his mansion in Surrey. Patarkatsishvili, known as Badri, died without leaving a valid will and his death led to numerous legal proceedings over his estate, estimated to be worth several billion dollars.

The High Court has issued a judgment ruling that three men, including a prominent Georgian businessman and an English solicitor, took part in an unlawful conspiracy and breached 'serious' fiduciary duties to pursue the recovery of Badri's fortune.

The decision means that legal proceedings will continue against the three men in an effort to recover fees and success payments they received while recovering Badri's assets.

Following Badri's death, a number of people including the Russian businessman, Boris Berezovsky, laid claim to his estate and legal proceedings ensued in a variety of jurisdictions.

The task of recovering Badri's assets was initially entrusted by Badri's family to Salford Capital Partners Inc (SCPI), which had been an adviser and partner to Badri for a number of years.

A number of senior SCPI employees, including CEO Eugene Jaffe, began to work to help Badri's widow protect the estate. They also initially included Irakli Rukhadze, then director of SCPI and head of Salford Georgia, and now a prominent Georgian businessman, and subsequently Igor Alexeev and Ben Marson, an English solicitor based in London.

After three years of successful work, a dispute broke out between SCPI and Messrs Rukhadze, Alexeev and Marson, leading to a breakup in 2011.

Recovery Partners GP Limited and Revoker LLP, entities created by SCPI, undertook proceedings against the three men.

After nearly two years of litigation and a four week trial, in her judgment (https://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Comm/2018/2918.html ) Mrs Justice Cockerill found that due to their actions the three individual defendants in the case had deprived the claimants of a maturing business opportunity. She found they conspired and took preparatory steps to split from SCPI and take for themselves the lucrative opportunity to pursue the recovery process.  The judge stated: "In the circumstances I conclude that the requirements of conspiracy are made out as between the individual defendants."[i]

The judge held that this was something they were not entitled to do and that they breached 'serious' fiduciary duties owed by them as senior employees of the claimants, stating: "There is no doubt in my mind that, in the context of the fiduciary duties owed these actions amounted to disloyalty, particularly when taken together with the actions which the defendants were taking to make themselves ready to continue the recovery services in a post-SCPI world. I conclude that each of the individual defendants breached their fiduciary duties."[ii]

Mrs Justice Cockerill also noted that Mr Marson's "casual approach to the erroneous use of Statements of Truth on the Defences … indicated that his conduct fell below the levels that one would expect for a qualified solicitor." [iii]

Following the split from SCPI, the three defendants completed the recovery of Badri's estate and created a new firm, Hunnewell Partners, for that purpose.  In the last few years, they have made a number of high-profile investments, including through Hunnewell, in Georgia, including buying substantial stakes in Liberty Bank, Rustavi Steel, Magti and Heidelberg Cement Georgia, and have established a litigation funding business.  Lawyers for the successful claimants are now preparing to take further legal steps to secure the money owed. It is estimated that they recovered over $2 billion for the estate and earned hundreds of millions of dollars for themselves in the process.

A spokesman for Recovery Partners said: "This is a significant High Court judgment which enables us to pursue our rights in recovering substantial sums of money that would have been paid to us but for the actions of those who conspired to deny the SCPI of its legitimate business opportunity.

"The proceedings will now move forward into a second phase in which the court will determine what Salford has lost as a result of the defendants' actions, alternatively what the defendants have illegitimately earned.  At the end of that second phase, the court will make an order requiring the defendants to compensate us either by way of damages or by way of surrendering the sums and other benefits which they have earned by taking the business for themselves."

Time to strengthen Rydoo's presence in Asia...  

Headquartered in Paris, Mechelen and Warsaw, Rydoo has already made several steps with a view to bringing its expense and business travel expertise to the APAC region.

The corp-up is targeting to onboard 20 new employees by January 2019; a wide range of job opportunities is available, including Sales Development Representative and Customer Success Manager.

THE ABSOLUT COMPANY: Saving the World -Cocktail by Cocktail

  [15-November-2018]  

STOCKHOLM, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --The problem with bar waste is real. The bars in London alone produce 800 000 tons of waste every year. 'The Green Hustle' is a new initiative with the mission to reduce bars waste. The initiative aims to inspire bartenders to be more sustainable by teaching fun and simple "hustles" that they can instigate today.

"Very few consumers associate bars with sustainability, but I think we will soon see the awakening of a more responsible cocktail-era. And reducing waste is pretty simple. Turn disregarded fruit into stock, ditch the plastics, start composting â€�“ and join the movement", says Bex Almqvist, Co-creator of the Green Hustle and Global Marketing Manager On Trade at Absolut Vodka.

The conversation about food waste and sustainable practices in the restaurant has been prevalent for a while. Just recently, the movement has also slowly been making its way into the bar world, with bars such as Dandelyan (London), Honeycut (Los Angeles) and Trashtiki (pop-up) as forerunners. And the challenge with bar waste is real. The 800 000 yearly tons of bar waste in London only is more than the combined weight of the city's total population. One plastic straw takes 200 years to decompose and about 8,5 billion straws are wasted in the UK alone each year. There are 50 000 bars in the UK, 60 000 bars in the US and 260 000 in Spain - that is a lot of waste.

The Green Hustle is a new global bartender engagement platform initiated by former bartender Bex Almqvist together with the anti-waste bartender duo Trashtiki and bartender Hampus Thunholm from renowned restaurant Fäviken in Sweden. The Green Hustle aims to inspire and enable bartenders around the world to be more sustainable in the bar by showcasing ready-to-implement tools and benefits in a fun and inspiring way. The initiative currently lives online at www.thegreenhustle.com and in seminar format, but will soon expand into new channels. See next page for inspirational tips for reducing bar waste, some low-waste cocktail recipes and for a list of best practice-bars where you can have delicious cocktails without being wasteful. 

"The Green Hustle is all about inspiring bartenders to get involved in applying easy, ready to be implemented hacks in their bars, that in the end of the day is both beneficial to the environment, our industry and their bottom line. The program is created by bartenders for bartenders with the objective to instigate change. Sustainability is an overwhelming topic, we hope with the Green Hustle to make it less daunting and more accessible for everyone â€�“ the smallest act can make a big impact and you can have fun and be inventive along the way", says Bex Almqvist.

Sustainability has been a priority for Absolut Vodka from the start. Having one the most energy efficient distilleries in the world, they generate 96% less CO2 emissions per liter than the average distillery. Absolut is something rare in the world of vodkas, as it is a one source vodka. This is not only a quality guarantee, but a prerequisite for environmental work that results in complete control from seed to bottle.

The Green Hustle lists...

7 ways to save the world - drink by drink

A few simple examples of what you can do in your bar today, these are tips that can be instantly instigated.

  1. Turn disregarded fruit into stock: Citrus is the most common, and most wasted ingredient, and to bartenders what bones are to chefs. So get stewing and make some citrus stock.
  2. Ditch the plastics: Forget plastic straws: use tasting spoons instead when taste testing and definitely don't use anything but compostable or recyclable straws in drinks!
  3. Recycle: Recycle glass. Recycle paper. Recycle tin cans. Recycle everything you can get your hands on.
  4. Refreeze/Melted ice: refreeze melted ice at the end of the night and use it the next day. It has already been filtered so the hard part is done for you.
  5. Composting: But better than that, start getting your mind focused on composting, it's like the ultimate Green Hustle Level Up for any bar.
  6. Put a lid on it: Put lids on your bins, and use landfill stickers and marine life stickers on your bins.
  7. End single-use ingredients! : Thi nk of your ingredients as a whole and think of how many ways it can be used. Take a lemon for example, you can juice it, pickle it, peel it and use it as a garnish.

PRN: Elcomsoft Decrypts Non-Text Content of iCloud Messages, Accesses Attached Photos, Media and Other Files Thu, 15 Nov 2018 04:51:29 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503714.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/503714.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Elcomsoft Decrypts Non-Text Content of iCloud Messages, Accesses Attached Photos, Media and Other Files

  [15-November-2018]  

MOSCOW, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates Elcomsoft Phone Breaker, the company's forensic extraction tool. In addition to iCloud Messages extraction, version 8.40 gains the ability to remotely access non-text content such as attached media, documents and other data stored in Apple iCloud. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker becomes the first forensic tool on the market to extract those types of evidence from the cloud. Elcomsoft Phone Viewer received an update to support the new data categories.

"It is hard to overestimate the importance of real-time evidence," says Elcomsoft CEO Vladimir Katalov. "iMessage conversations in particular are extremely tough to obtain. Point-to-point encryption protects messages and attached content against main-in-the-middle attacks, while their cloud copies are securely protected with industry-standard encryption. We are now offering a solution allowing to extract and decrypt the entire content of the chats including media files, documents and other types of data sent or received with iMessages." 

Background 

Apple makes active use of cloud sync, and is continuously expanding the amount of information synchronized with iCloud. Synchronized information is removed from iCloud backups. iOS 11.4 brought message sync, automatically synchronizing messages across devices. Conversation histories are an important part of real-time evidence. Attached media files can provide valuable insight about the user's location at the time of sending the message. In addition, non-text content may include videos, voice recordings and other media files, shared locations and full-size previews of linked Web sites sent and received by the user. These previews may remain available even after the original linked Web site is no longer accessible.

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can extract chats from the user's iCloud account just moments after new messages arrive. The latest update gains the ability to access non-text content such as attached pictures and media, documents, shared locations and other types of data. To access that content, experts may use a combination of Apple ID and password as well as the one-time code to pass two-factor authentication. In addition, a device passcode or account password from one of the already enrolled devices is required to decrypt messages and attachments.

Extracting Non-Text Content of iCloud Messages 

While previous versions of Elcomsoft Phone Breaker were able to access messages synced with iCloud, the new release brings support for non-text content included with iMessage attachments. Non-text content such as media files and locations can provide essential evidence during investigations. Many iMessage attachments are pictures captured with the iPhone, so analyzing EXIF data may return a number of location points. One can preview and save media files using the latest version of Elcomsoft Phone Viewer that has been updated to support iMessage attachments.

Since messages and attachments are point-to-point encrypted with a key derived from the user's passcode, access is impossible without a passcode. Apple does not have access to messages stored in iCloud. As a result, neither iMessages nor attachments are delivered as part of LE or GDPR requests. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker is the only forensic tool on the market to access iCloud Messages and attachments we well as other major evidence stored in iCloud. In order to access Messages and attachments, one needs the correct device passcode or system password to one of the devices already enrolled in the sync, which is in addition to iCloud/Apple ID login and password.

About Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker is an all-in-one mobile acquisition tool to extract information from a wide range of sources. Supporting offline and cloud backups created by Apple, BlackBerry and Windows mobile devices, the tool can extract and decrypt user data including cached passwords and synced authentication credentials to a wide range of resources from local backups. Cloud extraction with or without a password makes it possible to pull communication histories, searches and browsing habits, and retrieve photos that have been deleted by the user a long time ago. The tool offers the most advanced support for Apple iCloud, decrypting many types of data that Apple itself will not return when serving Law Enforcement and GDPR pullout requests. This includes users' passwords stored in iCloud Keychain, iCloud Messages and attachments.

Pricing and Availability 

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 8.40 is immediately available for Windows and macOS. This update is free to existing users with currently valid licenses. Home, Professional and Forensic editions are available. iCloud support is only available in Professional and Forensic editions, while password-free iCloud access as well as the ability to download arbitrary information from iCloud and iCloud Drive are only available in the Forensic edition. Two-Factor Authentication is available in all editions.

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker Pro is available to North American customers for $199. The Forensic edition enabling over-the-air acquisition of iCloud data and support for binary authentication tokens is available for $799. The Home edition is available for $79. Local pricing may vary.

System Requirements 

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker supports Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and Windows 10 as well as Windows 2008, 2012 and 2016 Server. The Mac version supports Mac OS X 10.7 and newer. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker operates without Apple iTunes or BlackBerry Link being installed. In order to access iCloud Keychain, Windows users must have iCloud for Windows installed, while Mac users must run macOS 10.11 or newer.

With a passion for providing the finest produce, the company looked for an EDI provider who could match their outlook and provide a high quality EDI trading network. Stefan Clements, IT Manager at Manor Fresh, states they were 'in the market for a cloud based EDI provider which would negate the need for their current onsite hardware, and as a result reduce the associated administrative tasks.'

After a recommendation from Prophet, Manor Fresh's ERP provider, the company looked into the TrueCommerce Fully Managed Service. Through seamless ERP integration, Manor Fresh have created an automated internal system which has drastically reduced cumbersome tasks and allowed Manor Fresh to refocus their time into other areas of the business.

Stefan highlighted that the, 'TrueCommerce Managed Service was a determining factor within the evaluation process. In the past it had been time consuming liaising with EDI providers when any changes were made. We reached a tipping point with our old EDI solution whereby one of our key customers, Marks & Spencer, increased their trading volumes with us. We needed a new solution which could manage our existing business relationships whilst also providing the capacity for future growth.'

Wirecard Enables Stuttgart to be the First Official China Pay City in Germany

  [15-November-2018]  

ASCHHEIM and STUTTGART, Germany, November 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

-  The partnership facilitates the use of Chinese mobile payment solutions Alipay and WeChat Pay in local businesses throughout the city  

- Around 50 locations in Stuttgart, including restaurants, retailers and museums, now accept Alipay and WeChat Pay, with many more to be added soon  

- Tourists can find Stuttgart attractions and points of interest on the Alipay and WeChat Pay apps   

Wirecard, the global innovation leader in digital financial technology, today announced a partnership with Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH, the official tourism partner of the German state capital of Baden-Württemberg. The collaboration enables the use of the most popular Chinese mobile payment methods in establishments across the city. As a result, Chinese Alipay and WeChat Pay users can now pay with their preferred mobile payment methods in around 50 locations in Stuttgart, including restaurants and bars, museums, retail stores, and transportation services. The partnership is expected to continuously expand, encompassing many more businesses in the near future.

Wirecard and Stuttgart-Marketing are capitalizing on the needs and preferences of Chinese tourists in Germany. Stuttgart is the first city in Germany to position itself as a China Pay City, with the aim of offering the Alipay and WeChat Pay payment solutions in as many locations frequented by Chinese travelers as possible.

Tourists using the Alipay and WeChat apps can find out more about a particular restaurant, hotel or shopping area with a profile in Mandarin, and be sure that they can pay for their meal and shopping items with their mobile payment apps. In addition, businesses can be looked up, reviewed, and featured in special discount sections within the apps. Wirecard will take over the full payment integration and processing, as well as support marketing activities, such as hosting in-app special offers and discounts.

Stuttgart remains among the most visited cities by Chinese tourists in Germany. In 2017, Chinese tourists made up the fourth largest foreign visitor market for Stuttgart, accounting for 65,000 overnight stays in the city. The initiative to become a China Pay City, supported by Wirecard, could be worthwhile for more German cities: China remains among the most important source markets for inbound tourism in Germany, with 2.9 million overnight stays in 2017.

"We are proud to be able to offer Chinese mobile payment methods in local businesses on a wide scale, and look forward to encouraging more and more companies to join our initiative," commented Armin Dellnitz, Managing Director of Stuttgart-Marketing. "China continues to be a growth market for tourism in Germany as a whole - and also in Stuttgart. We are responsible for marketing Stuttgart as a travel destination and therefore see ourselves as the driving force and facilitator for the new payment systems. Wirecard's support and expertise in the area of digital payments has been essential in implementing this innovative and forward-thinking solution."

Marion Laewe, Vice President Sales, Consumer Goods at Wirecard, added, "Our one of a kind partnership with Stuttgart-Marketing is extremely exciting for us.
