Persian Idea - an innovative Iran-based ecosystem for the development of the fashion system - was presented by CEO Dr. Sedghamiz during a press conference just held in Milan. During the speech he presented Persian Idea's development project, whose aim is to open up new collaborations between Iran and the international fashion system and that - as first country to kickstar its project - has chosen Italy.

Three main values charachterize Persian Idea: an approach to fashion which is wide and involves the whole lifestyle dimension; the empowerment of young talents combined with a new vision of creativity which becomes a mean to overcome gender divisions, to bring back to the center the human dimension of the Human being; and, finally, the commitment towards the eco-sustainability.

Persian Idea started its path from Italy: after the debut in Florence - where Pitti Uomo 94 was the occasion to present the 2019 spring-summer collection - the brand plans to open in 2019 a showroom in Milan, which will be followed by an opening in Paris.

The company, whose headquarter is based in Teheran, controls directly the whole fashion chain, from creation to production and promotion, and it is based upon highly innovative technologies able to protect the enviroment and to abolish wastes. The company - led by the enterpreneur Javad Sedghamiz - plans to become a priviledged representative for the dialogue between fashion from Iran and international fashion, on both directions. A project which sees Italy as a special partner.

"After what we achieved in Florence, we are proud to present our new project in Milan. In which, alongside with gathering most talented designers of our country and presenting their spectacular work within the Persian Idea brand, it pursues three objectives. Firstly, we aim to respect the culture of our country along with using it as our main inspiration. Secondly, we plan to start new projects which are inclusive toward the countries that we share borders with. Finally, thanks to our researches and studies, offer specialized consultancies to those foreign brands that plans to export their products in our country. Now we intend to invest in Italy and - in order to present our best - we plan to open a showroom in Milan, which will be followed by an opening in Paris, in both menswear and womenswear."

Persian Idea Mode ArTech, Iran-based private company founded at the beginning of 2018, is a leader ecosystem in the activities of design, training and media for the fashion industry. It manages all the phases of the fashion chain, from creativity to production, through its specific divisions: design studio, the innovatively equipped office which gathers the most talented Iranian and international designers and is made up of two design departments, one sampe-making and one 3D department; the public relations, media & event planning area, the Educational Center, the Reaserch & Develpoment hub; and, finally the directly controlled showroom and Art Gallery.

Insitu Receives Interior Contract Award for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Services


Unmanned Aircraft Systems will assist in combatting wildfires using geospatial mapping and full motion video

COSTA MESA, California, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Insitu, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company has received a first-of-its kind contract from the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) to provide fire suppression services within the contiguous 48 states and Alaska using its ScanEagle Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS).

INSITU A Boeing Company

Per the contract, Insitu will support manned aerial operations Including fire suppression, search and rescue, emergency management, and other operations as needed on a "call when needed" basis. 

"We are honored that Insitu has been selected to bring our professional aviation, aerial data collection and analysis experience to assist the DOI as they strive to suppress devastating wildfires," said Esina Alic, Insitu's president and CEO.

Equipped with Infrared and electro-optical cameras, sensors, and a customized TK-5 Firewatch smart tactical mapping payload, ScanEagle will provide near real-time fire line maps and wide-area, high-resolution imagery intelligence to assist with fire suppression planning. With these payloads onboard, ScanEagle can "fly the gaps," operating in dense smoke and darkness, when manned aircraft typically are grounded due to hazardous flying conditions for pilots.

As demonstrated in 2017 during the nearly 50,000 acre Eagle Creek, Oregon fire, as well as two wildfires in Northern California, Insitu's ScanEagle used aerial sensors allowing data gathering, analysis and dissemination to deliver critical situational awareness for incident commanders. This critical near-real time information allowed informed decision-making for more effectively and safely deploying firefighters. ScanEagle provided near real-time full motion video and geospatial mapping to pinpoint hot spots and locate fire lines in the rugged terrain.

During wildfires, UASs operate within Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) established over large-area wildfires. This work is done in collaboration with the Federal Aviation Administration to allow beyond visual line of sight flight operations â€�” a critical capability in the smoky wildfire environment â€�” while keeping other aircraft aware and safe.

About Insitu
Insitu is an industry-leading provider of information for superior decision making. With its headquarters in Bingen, Wash., and offices in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, the company creates and supports unmanned systems and software technology that deliver end-to-end solutions for collecting, processing and understanding sensor data. We proudly serve the diverse needs of our global customers in the defense, government and commercial industries. To date, our systems have accumulated more than one million flight hours and nearly 125,000 sorties. Insitu is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company.

PRN: New NHS Immigration Rules Signal an Increase in the Need for Qualification Checks Wed, 20 Jun 2018 09:02:51 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

New NHS Immigration Rules Signal an Increase in the Need for Qualification Checks


LONDON, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

On Thursday immigration rules were softened to allow thousands more doctors and nurses from non-EU countries to work in Britain. The cap, which has now been revoked, was first introduced by Theresa May in 2010 when she was home secretary, and it set a limit for all non-EU skilled workers entering the UK at 20,700 people a year.

Research from think tank Global Future[1] showed that, 12.5% of NHS England's staff are from overseas. That number rises to 45% in certain specialities including paediatric cardiologists and neurosurgeons. With these figures now certain to rise, it is imperative that the NHS stay vigilant when it comes to verification of qualifications.

Sadly, there are some individuals within the medical profession who will fraudulently claim to have qualifications that they do not hold. The rise in 'diploma mills' - bogus universities and fake certification websites is further making the illegal activity of embellishing one's qualifications extremely accessible.

Credentials fraud needs to be kept in check by ensuring all qualifications are verified at source. However, carrying out checks, particularly internationally, can be troublesome if you do not have the experience or expertise. Language barriers, varying time zones and a myriad of legal and procedural requirements make it a complex process.

Edward Hall, CEO, Qualification Check, says: "This new change in immigration rules for non-EU Doctors and Nurses is an extremely positive step for the NHS, providing them with a wider pool of talented medical professional to choose from.  There will be more qualification checks taking place as it is a mandatory requirement in the health sector. However, it is important to ensure that these checks are being carried out at source, rather than just simply accepting paper certificates."

All health trusts will be able to use a worldwide web-based service from Qualification check that enables international qualifications to be checked accurately and efficiently at source.



Notes to Editor: 

About Qualification Check:

Qualification Check are experts in the verification of credentials and have produced a web-based service that enables qualifications to be checked accurately and efficiently at source. Operating worldwide, covering tens of thousands of universities, colleges and professional bodies, Qualification Check provide an intuitive, automated, one-stop solution for employers, government agencies and human resources professionals to verify applicants' qualifications.

"I was going through a rough patch, getting divorced and the death of a parent which hit me hard, so I was struggling to make sense of it all. I decided that the best course was to put my faith into music which allowed me to express my personal emotions. I felt that if I put everything I had into making the album it would help to untangle all the difficulties and challenges I was facing in my life. It was a spiritually uplifting experience recording the album," says Webster.

Tom brought together an eclectic host of musicians featuring a saxophonist, harpist, gospel backing singers perfectly blended with jazz, traditional Scottish folk and complemented with Tom's powerful vocals to record the album on Scotland's west coast island of Mull, produced by Glaswegian producer, Angus Stirrat.

The album of dreamy pop-folk songs captures the essence of a summer finding new love, lost love and the hope of finding love again.

The album is available now on Spotify and Apple Music.

Advanced Use of Automation to Double in Europe by 2020


By 2020, 92 percent of European companies will have deployed Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to streamline business processes

Businesses reported a 9 percent increase in RPA budgets in the last year        

LONDON, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced business use of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is expected to double in Europe by 2020, as companies seek to improve customer experience and streamline their finance operations, according to new research from Information Services Group (ISG), (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

ISG, in partnership with RPA software provider Automation Anywhere, surveyed more than 500 European business leaders to assess their adoption of RPA technology and services. The research reveals the percentage of European companies expecting to be at the advanced stage of RPA use will double by 2020, while fewer than 10 percent will not yet have started their RPA journey.

While Europe has been slower to adopt technologies like automation than other markets, RPA is moving into the mainstream, with 92 percent of respondents saying they anticipate using RPA by 2020, and 54 percent saying they will reach the advanced stage of adoption by then, up from 27 percent currently.

ISG's research reveals RPA budgets in Europe increased on average by 9 percent in the last year, significantly ahead of the average increase for general IT spending. Of those companies that posted an increase, 25 percent saw a double-digit increase. Third parties, such as consultants and service providers, make up more than half of this budget.

Increasingly, improving the quality, speed and efficiency of client-facing and finance functions are becoming top priorities for corporate automation buyers. Over the next 24 months, respondents say RPA is expected to have the greatest impact on customer service and order-processing functions (43 percent), closely followed by finance, treasury and audit (42 percent); procurement, logistics and supply chain (40 percent), and sales and marketing (38 percent).

Adoption of RPA is in its initial stages in Europe, with three-quarters of respondents saying they are in either the early phase (up to pilot testing) or intermediate phase (automating fewer than 10 business processes). By 2020, however, nearly three-quarters expect to be in the intermediate to advanced phase (automating 10 or more processes).

Among Europe's largest markets, 60 percent of German companies expect to be in the advanced stage of deployment by 2020 (versus 32 percent today), following by 50 percent in France (up from 22 percent) and 46 percent in the UK (up from 23 percent).

However, barriers to adoption remain. Security is a key concern, with 42 percent of businesses citing this as an obstacle to expanding their RPA use. Lack of budget and resistance to change were both cited by 33 percent, followed by concerns over governance and compliance (29 percent), lack of IT support (28 percent) and lack of executive commitment (27 percent).

Commenting on the findings, Andreas Lueth, partner at ISG, said: "Robotic Process Automation is delivering improved outcomes for enterprises across Europe and our research shows many more businesses will be taking advantage of the technology by 2020 as adoption accelerates. The increasing prominence of RPA in organizations is borne out in the fact that many businesses are now choosing to appoint Heads of Automation â€�“ a role that has appeared only in the past two years.

"This technology has the potential to revolutionize customer service and back-office functions alike, but organizations should be wary of falling into the RPA trap. The decision to deploy RPA should be treated as a strategic business initiative, with defined objectives and measures. Without this, the chance of failure is high."

James Dening, vice president, Europe at Automation Anywhere adds: "European enterprises are at an exciting juncture with respect to RPA. If implemented properly, over the next few years RPA technologies will help deliver significant value for businesses across a range of European enterprises and industries, ensuring growth in productivity, efficiency and output, and helping these firms and industries stay competitive at a local, regional and global level."

First Michter's 10 Year Rye Release in Over a Year as Supply Shortages Continue


LOUISVILLE, Kentucky, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Michter's Master Distiller Pamela Heilmann has approved the 2018 release of Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye. These barrels were selected from Michter's stocks of aging whiskeys by Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson, who assessed them with Ms. Heilmann.

Shipments of the 2018 release of Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye will begin shortly before the Fourth of July holiday as a shortage in supply of Michter's whiskeys continues. "We have been expanding our operations, but great whiskey takes time," commented Michter's President Joseph J. Magliocco. "At Michter's we've made a conscious decision to continue to take the costly and time-consuming steps we do, rather than adopt practices that would increase our supply more quickly. Our team is committed to offering the highest quality whiskey possible, and we're grateful to everyone who has been loyal to Michter's as we have been working through these shortages."

Michter's Distiller and Vice President Production Dan McKee, an integral member of the distillery's tasting panel, had the opportunity to sample the 2018 release of Michter's 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye prior to its bottling, and he commented, "I'm excited about this 10 Year Rye release. It's a great representation of a Kentucky style rye at a really sweet spot in the maturation process. Pam and Andrea decided to bottle it at just the right point."

The suggested U.S. retail price per 750ml bottle of Michter's 10 Year Rye is $160.

Beyond its main distillery in the Shively section of Louisville, Michter's operations extend to two other sites in Kentucky. In Springfield, Michter's has begun farming estate grown grain on its 145-acre property, while in downtown Louisville, Michter's is planning to open its second distillery in the historic Fort Nelson building later this year.  Fort Nelson boasts a prime location on West Main Street opposite the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum and on the same block as the Frazier Museum.

Michter's makes highly acclaimed, limited production whiskeys that are subject to allocation because demand has exceeded supply. Michter's is renowned for its single barrel rye, small batch bourbon, single barrel bourbon, and small batch American whiskey.  For more information, please visit, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

    PRN: Prima distribuzione per il Rye di 10 anni di Michter dopo oltre un anno, mentre continua la carenza di approvvigionamento Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:38:11 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

    Prima distribuzione per il Rye di 10 anni di Michter dopo oltre un anno, mentre continua la carenza di approvvigionamento


    LOUISVILLE, Kentucky, 20 giugno 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pamela Heilmann, mastro distillatore della Michter, ha approvato la distribuzione del Kentucky Straight Rye di 10 anni Single Barrel della Michter per il 2018. Questi barili sono stati selezionati dalle scorte di whisky in invecchiamento di Michter dal Maestro della Maturazione Andrea Wilson, che li ha valutati insieme alla Sig.ra Heilmann.

    Le spedizioni dell'edizione 2018 del Kentucky Straight Rye di 10 anni Single Barrel della Michter inizieranno poco prima della festa del 4 luglio, mentre continuano a scarseggiare le forniture di whisky di Michter. "Abbiamo ampliato le nostre operazioni, ma un buon whisky richiede tempo," ha commentato il Presidente di Michter Joseph J. Magliocco. "Alla Michter abbiamo preso la decisione consapevole di continuare a eseguire i costosi e dispendiosi passaggi che adottiamo, piuttosto che adottare pratiche che aumenterebbero più rapidamente la nostra offerta. Il nostro team è impegnato a offrire il whisky della migliore qualità possibile e siamo grati a tutti coloro che sono stati fedeli alla Michter poiché abbiamo lavorato con queste forniture ridotte."

    Il Vice Presidente di Produzione e Distillatore della Michter Dan McKee, un membro a pieno titolo del panel di degustazione della distilleria, ha avuto l'opportunità di assaggiare l'edizione 2018 del Kentucky Straight Rye di 10 anni Single Barrel della Michter prima del suo imbottigliamento, e ha commentato, "Sono entusiasta di questa edizione del Rye di 10 anni. Rappresenta al meglio la segale in stile Kentucky a un punto davvero dolce nel processo di maturazione. Pam e Andrea hanno deciso di imbottigliarlo al momento giusto."

    Il prezzo di vendita al dettaglio consigliato per gli Stati Uniti per la bottiglia da 750 ml del Rye 10 anni della Michter è di 160 dollari USA.

    Oltre alla sua principale distilleria nella sezione Shively di Louisville, le attività di Michter si estendono ad altri due siti nel Kentucky. A Springfield, Michter ha avviato una una tenuta agricola coltivata di grano su una sua proprietà di 59 ettari, mentre nel centro di Louisville, Michter sta pianificando di aprire la sua seconda distilleria nello storico edificio di Fort Nelson entro la fine dell'anno. Fort Nelson vanta una posizione privilegiata sulla West Main Street di fronte al Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum e si trova nello stesso isolato del Frazier Museum.

    Michter produce whisky a tiratura limitata molto apprezzati che sono soggetti ad assegnazione limitata poiché la richiesta ha superato l'offerta.
