  [17-January-2018]  

TORONTO, January 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The Stars Group Inc. announced today that PokerStars, its flagship brand, launched a shared player pool yesterday between locally licensed poker markets in France and Spain. PokerStars is the first online poker operator to offer a shared player pool under license in France and Spain, which enables players from both countries to compete against one another at PokerStars.fr and PokerStars.es.

The launch follows the July 2017 agreement concerning online poker liquidity sharing by gaming regulators in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

"We look forward to extending the combined player pool to Italian and Portuguese players, and we offer our full support to the relevant authorities in those countries to do so."

To celebrate the launch of shared liquidity in France and Spain, PokerStars will be hosting a €5 million guaranteed online poker tournament series, the France Espania Hold'em (FRESH), which will be exclusively available to players based in France and Spain from January 28 - February 11, 2018. As a result of increased liquidity, players will also have access to additional promotions surrounding the FRESH series as well as an enhanced daily tournament offering, bigger prize-pools and guarantees, and potentially larger prizes in the Stars Rewards customer loyalty program.

From a young age, Alex Pettyfer has shown the bravery, will and determination to achieve his dreams. Born in Great Britain, Pettyfer performed in school plays before auditioning and winning a role in the TV movie Tom Brown's Schooldays when he was only 13. At 15, he ventured out on his own to Los Angeles, where he was cast as Alex Rider in the movie Stormbreaker. For this, his breakthrough role, he was nominated for both a Young Artist Award and an Empire Award. Pettyfer went on to play leading roles in I Am Number Four, Endless Love, Magic Mike, The Strange Ones and the upcoming The Last Witness, as well as supporting roles in The Butler and Elvis & Nixon. His next big challenge is Back Roads, which the 27-year-old heartthrob will star in as well as direct.

In his soon-to-be-unveiled first campaign for Only the Brave, Pettyfer will lead and unite a global squadron of young and influential braves.

"The Only the Brave hero is a charismatic leader who confidently moves forward in life with strong determination and will. He is a federator. Alex Pettyfer is the perfect embodiment of this new expression of bravery. Tomorrow belongs to the braves." Guillaume de Lesquen International General Manager Designer Brands Fragrances.

HoReCa drip coffee makers are being manufactured by the various large scale companies with plants, where they are packaged and supplied globally. The majority of European based manufacturers are supplying the products globally.

Despite Interest in Coffee Market Faces Challenges as Capsule Coffee Gains Momentum 

Growing urbanization and development in the foodservice industry, the expansion of a number of MNC outlets/ local coffee chains are driving the market. Innovative coffee shops and tea houses are bringing late-night café culture to several countries globally.  It has become a part of culture with the rising population of millennials being provided with essentials in the cafés such as wireless connectivity and serene and peaceful environment and also space to socialize. The allure of drinking a cup of coffee has become a part of everyday lifestyle or in some cases an addiction - of today's growing number of millennial population. For youngsters, coffee shops have become a place to socialize which provides a clean, peaceful and serene environment. Coffee shops have become a part of coffee culture.

Some of the restraints that are potentially restricting the growth of HoReCa drip coffee maker market is the advent of new technologies and the consumer shift towards pod coffee and capsule coffee, which are some of the key roadblocks that have plagued the industry's development over the years. Continuous innovations are taking place with introduction of state-of the-art technology driven coffee machines in the market.

Preference for Automatic Machines Hamper Sales of Drip Coffee Maker Machines 

Also at the coffee outlet's end, the owners prefer to go for semi-automatic or fully automatic machines due to the ease of operations, lesser brewing time, and the wide variety of range which is available for the consumers as per their growing and changing demands globally. Furthermore, another prospective restraint of the HoReCa drip coffee maker market is the young population driving the market more for espresso coffee.

FinELib and Elsevier Reach Agreement for Subscription Access and Open Access Publishing

Joint FinELib and Elsevier press release

  [17-January-2018]  

AMSTERDAM and HELSINKI, January 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The FinELib consortium and information analytics business Elsevier today signed an agreement making Elsevier's globally published research articles available to Finnish academic institutions, while providing Finnish researches with incentives to publish open access if they so choose.

The three-year contract applies to 13 Finnish universities, 11 research institutions and 11 universities of applied sciences, and grants subscription access to around 1,850 journals on Elsevier's ScienceDirect e-platform. To support Finland's goal of transitioning to open access publishing, Elsevier and FinELib have initiated an Open Access pilot program that stimulates Finnish researchers to publish their articles open access in Elsevier journals.

"Elsevier's high-quality scientific, technical and medical research publications have significant value for Finnish researchers in order to stay internationally competitive," said Keijo Hämäläinen, Rector at the University of Jyväskylä and leader of the contract discussions on behalf of FinELib. "Continued subscription access at competitive rates has therefore been a key priority for us. At the same time, the Finnish research community and Elsevier have agreed to provide options for authors to publish open access. We are pleased with Elsevier taking concrete steps to support our open access goals."

Based on Scopus and ScienceDirect data, Finnish research published by Elsevier increased by 37.5 percent between 2011 and 2015 while the total number of Finnish articles published grew by 15.8 percent during that the same period. These numbers demonstrate the value Finnish scientists attach to publishing in Elsevier's high-quality journals.

"The average quality of Elsevier's articles worldwide, as indicated by the citation impact, is 30 percent above market average. This makes publishing in Elsevier journals particularly attractive to Finnish researchers, with whom we've had a long-lasting relationship" said Gino Ussi, Executive Vice President at Elsevier. "The collaboration between the Finnish research community and Elsevier is aimed at further improving the already high standard of Finnish research. We achieve this by paving the way for open access publishing and leveraging the full potential of Elsevier's ScienceDirect platform - improving the way researchers search, discover, read, understand and share scholarly research."

The industry's first holistic assessment of today's leading tech companies utilizes a 28-data-point algorithm to objectively identify organizations with the fortitude for the future in today's complex business environment. The methodology measures performance across eight pillars: Financial, Management and Investor Confidence, Risk and Resilience, Legal Compliance, Innovation, People and Social Responsibility, Environmental Impact, and Reputation. Its patent-pending approach was developed by Thomson Reuters Labs.  

"Tech companies operate at warp speed confronting competitive, regulatory, legal, financial, supply chain and myriad other business challenges. Oftentimes, their financial success overshadows their operational integrity, making it difficult to identify those organizations with true longevity for the future," said Alex Paladino, global managing director of the Thomson Reuters Technology Practice Group. "With the Top 100 Global Tech Leaders, we've identified the unique data points that embody technology-industry leadership in the 21st century; congratulations to the companies that made the list."

The world's leading tech organizations:

  • Outperform the Nasdaq, S&P 500 and MSCI World indices in year-over-year stock price change by 3.91 percent, 4.04 percent and 7.1 percent, respectively
  • Outperform global indices across other factors including YOY R&D investment, employee percent change and revenue percent change
  • Forty-five percent are headquartered in the United States; Japan and Taiwan are the next most prolific regions with 13 top 100 tech companies each

PRN: Leading German Cookware Brand Velosan Launches Promotional Campaign Wed, 17 Jan 2018 00:24:00 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/466395.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/466395.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Leading German Cookware Brand Velosan Launches Promotional Campaign

  [16-January-2018]  

COLOGNE, Germany, Jan. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest aspect of the cooking craze sweeping across the globe is the desire to have the best cooking utensils. Metro AG, a German global diversified retailer, announced the launch of a promotional campaign for 2018, allowing shoppers to collect coupons that can be redeemed in exchange for nine types of cooking utensils from local German cast iron cookware brand Velosan, rather than imported cookware during previous campaigns. Among the cooking utensils for which the coupons can be redeemed, one can find the Velosan-branded single-handle frying pan, cast iron milk pot, chopping board and slicing knife.

Velosan cookware

Since the launch of the first promotional campaign in 2015, Metro has issued coupons that could be redeemed for 350 different sets of cooking utensils, creating a path by which the retailer could re-engage with 1.1 million non-active members who then returned to a Metro outlet for purchase. An analysis of sales data by Metro showed that, among older shoppers, the preference was to save up the coupons and redeem them for expensive utensils, with veteran housewives frequently opting for the higher-priced wok and soup tureen, while younger shoppers preferred lower-priced accessories. Each campaign, on average, contributed more than 130 million euros in revenue to the retailer, with the average sale per shopper 20 percent higher than those who completed a purchase without redeeming coupons.

Founded in 1896, Velosan boasts the world's most advanced manufacturing equipment complimented by each utensil being finished by means of a manual polishing process carried out by skills artisans, in addition to Velosan's tradition of incomparable German craftsmanship in terms of exterior design. Metro revealed that they had conducted a survey prior to this year's campaign with the results showing that more than three out of ten housewives on average were aware of the Velosan brand, due to the cookware maker having previously launched promotional campaigns in supermarkets across Europe and seen how the campaigns had boosted sales. Metro aims to promote healthy cooking and dining via the campaign.

Metro said that with this year's campaign they have lowered the minimum number of points needed to complete a redemption to 25 points besides the lowest ever product unit price. For the first time, the retailer allowed shoppers to redeem select products via the points they earn, allowing more flexibility in how the coupons can be redeemed.

  [16-January-2018]  

BEIJING and PARIS, January 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

As the only organisation bringing consumer goods retailers and manufacturers together globally, the CGF is uniquely positioned to help Chinese companies engage and collaborate with their peers on the international stage and ensure the needs of local companies and consumers are considered when global actions are developed, such as those around halving food waste, achieving zero-net deforestation and providing greater transparency to consumers.

The Consumer Goods Forum has been heavily involved in spreading the "Better Lives through Better Business" message in China, and is looking forward to increasing its activity in the country through the new hub.

Xiao An Ji, Chairman of Beijing Hualian, has been a long-time member of the CGF's Board of Directors, while Daniel Zhang, CEO of Alibaba Group, is a more recent addition.

Peter Freedman, Managing Director, The Consumer Goods Forum, stated, "We are really excited to be launching our new China office. As one of the world's superpowers, China has the influence to set the tone for the global economy, which is why we are so keen to promote sustainability and encourage our members to support the 'Better Lives through Better Business' vision. Our new office will allow us to build on the work we have done to date in China on food safety and extend our collaborative approach to other dimensions of positive change".

Ian Cook, CEO of Colgate Palmolive and co-chair of The Consumer Goods Forum, commented, "Creating a healthier and greener society is a key business objective at Colgate-Palmolive and collaboration is essential if we are to achieve our goals - with retailers, manufacturers, governments and many other stakeholders. China is a key market for us, so we are delighted to support the extensions of The Consumer Goods Forum's work in China".

Daniel Zhang, CEO of Alibaba Group, stated, "Alibaba Group is proud to be a member of The Consumer Goods Forum, which brings together stakeholders for constructive dialogue and collaboration. China is at the forefront of the global digital economy, and will play an important role in bringing technology to bear on issues like supply chain transparency and the environment".

Patrick Yu, President of COFCO, said, "The CGF is a critical voice in the sustainability debate and we're really excited to see its new venture in China.

"Jewish Nobel" Laureate Anish Kapoor Pledges $1m Genesis Prize to Refugee Causes

  [16-January-2018]  

LONDON, January 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

 David Miliband's International Rescue Committee Major Beneficiary of Kapoor's Gift  

The Genesis Prize Foundation (GPF) and 2017 Genesis Prize Laureate and world-renowned artist and human rights activist Anish Kapoor today announced grants to five prominent NGOs engaged in alleviating the global refugee crisis.

The recipient organizations assist refugees globally and include the International Rescue Committee (IRC), led by its president David Miliband, as well as the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees (MFA), HIAS (founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), Help Refugees, and Hillel International.

The grants are funded by the $1 million Genesis Prize, dubbed the "Jewish Nobel" by TIME Magazine. Anish Kapoor has chosen to focus on refugees as an expression both of his lifelong commitment to supporting excluded people and as an expression of core Jewish values.

The Genesis Prize honors extraordinary individuals who serve as an inspiration to the next generation of Jews through their outstanding professional achievement, and commitment to the Jewish people and Jewish values, such as social justice, tolerance and charity. Laureates of the Genesis Prize include Michael R. Bloomberg (2014), Michael Douglas (2015), Itzhak Perlman (2016), and Natalie Portman (2018). In November 2017, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was selected as the inaugural recipient of the Genesis Lifetime Achievement Award.

Kapoor and The Genesis Prize Foundation have teamed up with the IRC to improve community health services for refugees in northern Uganda and to provide life-saving access to safe water for the Rohingya ethnic minority group in the Rakhine state in Myanmar. Genesis funds will also support the expansion into Italy of Refugee.Info, a digital platform, which harnesses social media and other digital tools to ensure that refugees have access to the critical information they need to make informed decisions about their lives.

Additionally, Kapoor's $1 million Genesis Prize will fund the following activities:

  • Providing life-saving winterization to five refugee camps in Greece and a refugee camp in Calais, France, including the funding of food and the most essential winter equipment (through Help Refugees)
  • Shipping 36 containers of aid to Syrian refugees (through Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees); the contents of the first two containers that MFA will ship under the Genesis Prize program will have a combined value of $20.7 million in medicines and medical equipment
  • Strengthening the capacity of local leaders in communities across America to advocate in support of immigrants and refugees to the U.S. (through HIAS); the amount of the grant was doubled as a result of recent policy debate in Washington aimed at curtailing the number of immigrants and refugees from certain countries that the U.S. would accept in the future
  • Bringing thousands of Jewish students and young adult volunteers together to assemble aid packages for 5,000 Syrian refugees (through Hillel International, in collaboration with the Joint Distribution Committee)

These grants come on the heels of an earlier announcement of a major grant from GPF to Ziv hospital in northern Israel to fund hearing restoration for Syrian children brought from the neighbouring conflict zone. The Ziv grant was made in partnership with Israeli philanthropist Morris Kahn.

Anish Kapoor said: "Like many Jews, I do not have to go far back in my family history to find people who were refugees. Directing Genesis Prize funds to this cause is a way of helping people who, like my forebears not too long before them, are fleeing persecution.

"In recent months, awareness of the plight faced by tens of millions of refugees and displaced persons worldwide has fallen significantly while the refugee crisis continues unabated. I believe in a world of compassion, and am fortunate to be able to work with The Genesis Prize Foundation and the terrific NGOs receiving our grants to bring more compassion into the world."  

Michael Fridman, co-founder of The Genesis Prize Foundation, said: "I believe it is a moral obligation of every Jew to do whatever he or she can to help refugees, displaced people, and those seeking asylum. There was a time not too long ago when the world turned its back on Jewish refugees, with calamitous results. We, Jews, should not allow history to repeat itself when it comes to other persecuted peoples and religious and ethnic minorities. Otherwise, we have learned nothing from history." In addition to co-founding The Genesis Prize Foundation, Fridman is a major contributor to many other Jewish and Israel-focused philanthropic initiatives, including the recently announced renovation of the Israeli Lounge at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, David Miliband, himself a son of Jewish refugees, said: "Grants like the one from The Genesis Prize Foundation are vital to supporting our work as we grapple with the largest displacement crisis since the Second World War, affecting a staggering 65 million people.

"We are grateful to The Genesis Prize Foundation, which is leading the way in raising awareness of the refugee issue in the Jewish community. It is more important than ever for people to help those who have been forced to flee their homes. With these funds, the IRC will have the ability to provide much-needed resources and support to displaced people in areas across Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia."

CORRECTION: North American Oil Industry Expecting Impressive Growth as 2018 Production Forecast Nears 11 Million Barrels Per Day

  [16-January-2018]  

PALM BEACH, Florida, January 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

MarketNewsUpdates.com News Commentary 

The oil industry has enjoyed a considerable upswing since the new administration took office in the United States in 2017. In the past year, exports of crude oil have increased exponentially and the global oil economy has taken notice of the impressive revenue and production levels emerging from America. New horizontal drilling technologies are tapping into vast reserves of oil and gas trapped in shale field as companies are expecting exciting results heading into the new year.  The surge in U.S. production is being driven by output from shale fields, where drillers use advanced methods like hydraulic fracturing to squeeze oil and gas from tight rock formations.  With favorable policies in place, the American industry is only expected to continue its growth, with experts pinning the latest forecast of product! ion near 11 million barrels per day in just two years. Notable companies in the industry this week include:  Jericho Oil Corporation (TSX-V: JCO) (OTC: JROOF), Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG), Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK), Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG).

Jericho Oil Corporation (TSX-V: JCO) (OTC: JROOF), announces that it has entered into an agreement, through its Oklahoma STACK Joint Venture ("STACK JV"), to swap a portion of its undeveloped acreage in Blaine and Major County with Staghorn STACK, LLC ("Staghorn").   The acreage swap will allow the Company to (i) strategically grow its acreage position in areas in or proximate to current horizontal well development; (ii)participate in the drilling of multiple strategic horizontal wells targeting the Meramec and Osage formations within the Company's acreage footprint; (iii) continue to aggregate critical drilling, completion and lateral placement data from a proven, best-inclass STACK operator; (iv) secure tag-along rights for a portion of its Blaine County STACK JV acreage; and (v) cost effectively grow production and potentially reserves. Read this and more news ! for Jericho at  http://www.marketnewsupdates.com/news/jco.html

Accordingly, Jericho has elected to participate in the drilling of the Wardroom well (Section 12-19N13W; 46.87% WI / 37.5% NRI to STACK JV) with Staghorn as the Operator and pay its proportionate working interest share of costs related to drilling and completion.  The Wardroom well has been spud and is currently being drilled.  It is approximately a 4,500-foot lateral targeting the Meramec formation in the normally-pressured oil window.

Brian Williamson, CEO of Jericho Oil, stated, "With a New Year and oil prices at our back, we are excited about our growing STACK position and to be participating in our first horizontal STACK well targeting the prolific Meramec formation.  Our acreage swap agreement ensures Jericho receives critical data for future operated drilling activities, and participation in the drilling of proximate horizontal wells to our footprint, with a proven best-in-class STACK operator.  We look forward to updating our shareholders on future growth opportunities as 2018 unfolds."    The acreage swap is subject to customary due diligence and is expected to close by the end of January.
