SIMBOLISMO  ED ARCHITETTURA ESOTERICA DA SANTA CHIARA ALLA GALLERIA UMBERTO I

 

"OBSCURUM PER OBSCURIUS - IGNOTUM PER IGNOTIUS “

Andare verso l'oscuro e verso l' ignoto attraverso ciò che è ancora più oscuro e più ignoto.

La curiosità inizia ad imperversare nella nostra mente ma pur sforzandoci di capire, nella maggior parte dei casi non sappiamo porci una risposta o quantomeno, la nostra risposta è puramente marginale. Il termine “Esoterismo”  rientra in quella visione filosofica le cui origini si perdono, nella notte dei tempi o meglio all’alba della civiltà dell’uomo. E’ il termine con cui si indicano, in senso lato, le dottrine di carattere almeno in parte segreto o riservato, che venivano divulgate attraverso simboli ed immagini. Ebbene Napoli è piena di queste simbologie esprimenti principi ermetici relegati ad una scienza che ancor oggi è ritenuta occulta Nel corso della nostra passeggiata in un percorso che abbraccia sei secoli di storia dal XV al XVIII secolo dal simbolismo esterno ed interno della Basilica di Santa Chiara ai portali ed archi dei palazzi di via Toledo cercheremo di dare quante più risposte esaurienti riguardo questa dottrina ermetica. Spiegheremo in maniera semplice soprattutto il concetto di alchimia ed esoterismo attraverso la visione di simbolismi e forme architettoniche celati agli occhi dei profani. Ci soffermeremo davanti alcune dimore storiche della Napoli che furono un tempo dimore di illustri alchimisti napoletani spiegando con brevi cenni biografici le personalità di costoro come Giambattista Della Porta, Luigi D’Aquino di Caramanico e tanti altri ancora. Il percorso terminerà nella galleria Umberto I dove sarà illustrata la particolare forma architettonica con lee varie simbologie annesse di chiara matrice esoterica.

visita guidata Napoli 25 novembre 2017 I Luoghi di Eduardo De Filippo e Filomena Marturano Fri, 17 Nov 2017 19:45:29 +0100 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459766.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459766.html Antarecs Antarecs SABATO 25 NOVEMBRE 2017

 

I LUOGHI DI EDUARDO DE FILIPPO E FILOMENA MARTURANO.

 

 

EDUARDO DE FILIPPO, icona e pietra miliare della drammaturgia teatrale partenopea. Personaggio emblematico che ha saputo tradurre in pieno  attraverso  la teatralizzazione, l’essenza ed il concetto di napoletanità nelle sue molteplici sfaccettature. Concetto elaborato tramite la rappresentazione  delle sue commedie ambientate nei luoghi popolari della quotidianità partenopea. Chi meglio di lui, al pari di tanti figli illustri nati all’ombra del Vesuvio e l’elenco sarebbe alquanto lungo, potevano dare una immagine così precisa, dettagliata e per certi versi controversa di un popolo e di sua madre Partenope che da tremila anni, è sinonimo di cultura e tradizione. Ebbene, il nostro tour non vuole essere di certo una forma di tripudio al grande Eduardo o meglio ai fratelli De Filippo bensì, un omaggio a questi figli illustri di Napoli, descrivendone la personalità raccontandone gesta, aneddoti di questi personaggi che, attraverso la loro arte teatrale hanno dato lustro a questa variopinta e splendida città.

 

Partiremo da Piazza San Pasquale a Chiaia per raggiungere in pochi minuti via Vittoria Colonna presso Palazzo Scarpetta in cui vennero alla luce Eduardo e Titina. Di lì ci sposteremo in via Bausan presso lo stabile dove nacque l’ultimo dei tre fratelli De Filippo, Peppino per poi recarci nella chiesa dell’Ascensione dove furono battezzati e per gentile concessione del parroco visioneremo gli atti originali di battesimo di Eduardo, Titina e Peppino. Proseguiremo poi alla volta dei quartieri spagnoli tra dedali di vicoli e strette strade descritte con dovizia di particolari dalla celebre scrittrice Matilde Serao. Luoghi considerati un tempo del sesso e del piacere in cui erano ubicate molte case di tolleranza, che dettero spunto ad Eduardo per comporre una delle sue commedie più famose “Filomena Marturano” personaggio che a detta di molti è realmente esistito come ad affermarlo una targa posta in Via San Liborio di fianco il terraneo dove abitava “‘o vascio “ dove riecheggiano i versi “ nir, affummecat addò a stagione nun se respira do calore pecchè a gente è assaje e ‘o viern ‘o fridd fa sbattere e rient addò nun ce sta luce manc a miezz juorn”. Non ci resta quindi che darci appuntamento a sabato 25 novembre in un suggestivo ed affascinante percorso sulle orme di Eduardo.

Aeroporto di Fiumicino è noto nel mondo.. ma il Comune? Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:28:06 +0100 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459643.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459643.html angelomontini angelomontini  

L'Aeroporto di Fiumicino è assai noto nel mondo per essere le porte di Roma.

I viaggiatori che vogliono visitare la città eterna nella stragrande maggioranza dei casi scendono in questo aeroporto ma purtroppo raramente poi vistano la città di Fiumicino.

Il Comune è nato solo negli anni 90 perchè prima era una delle circoscrizioni (oggi Municipi) del Comune di Roma poi a seguito di un referendum consultivo venne costituito il Comune, che accolse dentro i suoi confini le località di Fregene, Maccarese, Palidoro, Tragliata, Tragliatella, Torrimpietra e ovviamente Fiumicino paese. Un vasto territorio con peculiarità assai diverse e distinte.

Solo a Fregene, a 15 minuti da Fiumicino aeroporto, hanno avuto la residenza: Federico Fellini, il noto regista autore di "La dolce vita" o "8 e 1/2" o "Le notti di Cabiria"; Ettore Scola regista di tanti film interpretati fra gli altri da Alberto Sordi, Marcello Mastroianni o Sofia Loren; Gillo Pontecorvo, Lina Wertmuller e tanti altri famosi artisti.

Maccarese era stata nota e ancora lo è oggi per la sua fiorente agricoltura biologica, Fregene era meta cultural-artistica negli anni 60 e 70 mentre a Fiumicino il mare è protagonista. Qui hanno sede legale numerose aziende di pesca e di costruzione navale.

Il turismo oggi non è quello caratteristico di Roma: non viaggiatori stranieri che scendono all'aeroporto internazionale ma soprattutto turisti pendolari che arrivano da Roma per gustare cibi a base di pesce o per abbronzarsi lungo il litorale sabbioso.

Ovviamente l'Aeroporto internazionale "Leonardo da Vinci" di Fiumicino è il polo industriale più importante per volume di fatturato (tra indotto diretto e indiretto) e per numero di lavoratori.

I servizi collegati sono molteplici: si va dai più evidenti servizi di ristorazione a quelli di gestione; come anche servizi consulenzialei o di trasporto (NCC Roma e Fiumicino).

Il Leonardo da Vinci dispone attualmente di quattro terminal T1 T2 T3 e T5 riservati ai voli nazionali internazionali e intercontinentali e di tre piste

Visite guidate Napoli novembre 2017 Domenica 19/11/2017 ERESIA ED INQUISIZIONE E LA SORIA DI SUOR GIULIA DE MARCO Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:06:29 +0100 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459189.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459189.html Antarecs Antarecs DOMENICA 19  NOVEMBRE 2017

 

ERESIA ED INQUISIZIONE. LA STORIA DI GIULIA DE MARCO E L’IPOGEO DEI MARTIRI DELLA RIVOLTA DI MASANIELLO NELLA CHIESA DI SANTA MARTA.

 

Eresia ed Inquisizione, termini che ancor oggi evocano terrore, timore, persecuzione e che hanno caratterizzato il lungo periodo storico della società cinquecentesca e seicentesca. Parole i cui sinonimi corrispondono a soprusi, stregoneria, torture, morte in nome di dogmi e dottrine costruite ad hoc. Ma chi erano gli eretici o per meglio dire chi era etichettato come eretico? Gente comune tra cui, intellettuali, scienziati, medici, ecclesiastici vissuti a cavallo tra il XVI ed il XVII secolo la cui sola colpa imputabile era quella di porsi delle risposte alle loro curiosità, e sete del sapere ponendosi dei semplici perché. Precisiamo subito che Napoli fu, una delle poche città d’Europa o forse l’unica metropoli del tempo insieme a Venezia che rifiutò, decisamente e con fermezza l’istituzione dei tribunali della Santa Inquisizione all’interno delle proprie mura. Ciò nonostante però molti esponenti di cultura di quei tempi non poterono fare a meno di sfuggire ne tantomeno sottrarsi, alla cosiddetta caccia alle streghe perpetrata da poteri forti che in ogni modo, cercavano di ostacolare l’evoluzione mentale dell’individuo che inevitabilmente solo nel XVIII secolo portò alla evoluzione di quel movimento filosofico e filantropico che prende il nome di Illuminismo termine derivante, da Lumina Mentis ossia apertura della mente. Ovviamente come accennavamo poc’anzi, nonostante che la nostra città abbia rifiutato caparbiamente l’introduzione dei tribunali della Santa Inquisizione molti illustri concittadini del tempo furono marchiati, come eretici, sottoposti ad indagini, persecuzione, processi, torture e sottoposti ad ogni tipo di anomia. Basta fare alcuni nomi: Giambattista Della Porta e Giordano Bruno quest’ultimo condannato al rogo. Inoltre, l’inquisizione cercò in tutti i modi di arginare il concetto di pensiero etichettando come eretici anche coloro, che avevano preso parte alla rivolta di Masaniello del 1647 e gran parte trucidati all’interno della chiesa di Santa Marta dove tutt’ora i resti mortali riposono nel sottostante ipogeo che visiteremo in esclusiva. Pur tuttavia, ad onor di onestà storica dobbiamo precisare, che tra i cosiddetti eretici ci furono anche delle esagerazioni che superavano la pubblica decenza come nel caso di Suor Giulia De Marco personaggio controverso, ambiguo e alquanto sconosciuto della Napoli seicentesca. Ebbene il nostro tour domenicale si articolerà tra i luoghi che videro la presenza di questi personaggi del passato che hanno caratterizzato la storia della nostra città. Luoghi dove hanno dimorato e nel contempo professato le loro idee in primis Basilica e Convento di San Domenico Maggiore ove dimorò Giordano Bruno. Ma c’è un altro luogo ancora in parte sconosciuto che custodisce gelosamente da circa quattro secoli i resti mortali di quelli che furono i martiri dell’eresia nonché uomini e donne dell’esercito di Masaniello, questo luogo sacro e misterioso è costituito dai sotterranei ed ipogeo della trecentesca chiesa di Santa Marta dove tra l’altro sono conservati parte degli abiti indossati dai rivoluzionari del 1647. Ma ampio spazio sarà dato alla figura emblematica proprio di Suor Giulia De Marco influente personaggio e fondatrice della confraternita della Carità Carnale una miscellana a sfondo boccacesco tra erotismo, passionalità e religione nonché i luoghi dove ha dimorato e praticato tali dottrine. Il tour si concluderà poi nella chiesa di Santa Marta con la visita in esclusiva e per la prima volta all’ipogeo dove sono custoditi i resti mortali di quello che fu l’esercito di Masaniello. Bene, allora non ci resta che darci appuntamento a domenica 19 novembre 2017, con una chiave di lettura un po’ diversa sul tema dell’ Eresia ed Inquisizione.

Legendary Pictures' VR Installation Wins Special Oscar

  [12-November-2017]  

BEIJING, Nov. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 11, "Carne y Arena (Virtually Present, Physically Invisible)", a VR installation funded and presented by Legendary Pictures of Dalian Wanda Group, was awarded a Special Award, an Oscar statuette, making it the first Oscar-winning VR installation.

Legendary Entertainment Vice Chairman Mary Parent, director Alejandro G. Iñarritu, and a cinematographer Emanuel Lubezki take a photo at the Annual Governors Awards.

"Carne y Arena" changes the way audiences watching films and is of revolutionary significance in the history of world film. John Bailey, President of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, praised that "it opens for us new doors of cinematic perception."

As one of the Academy Awards, Special Honorary Oscar is awarded to outstanding works that make remarkable contributions to the film industry but cannot be classified. Previously Special Honorary Oscar winners include "Star Trek" (1977), "Superman" (1978), "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (1980), "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981), "Toy Story" (1996), etc.

"Carne y Arena," produced by Legendary Entertainment's Vice Chairman Mary Parent, is an official selection from a four-time Oscar winning director, Alejandro G. Iñarritu, and a three-time winning cinematographer Emanuel Lubezki, and takes on the plight of immigrants trying to cross the US-Mexico border for a better life in America. It made a stir when it premiered in Cannes this May, and was perceived as a piece of milestone works of the virtual reality.

"Carne y Arena" had a cutting-edge exploration towards the motion picture techniques, changed the interactive mode between the audiences and director, and achieved impressive results. It is reported that this 7-minute VR installation can even compare with the 131-minute "Pacific Rim" in total data and technical strength. In "Carne y Arena", each of the 16 roles has his/her own story line. The audience wearing VR helmet may follow any one of these characters in the scenario to watch and experience. In the process, the audience's shadow will change as the position moves. They may experience the breeze, texture of cloths, and the heartbeat. "Carne y Arena" blurs the boundary between the audience and the film itself, making the audience a part of it to enjoy the immersive experience.

"Carne y Arena" is on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Fondazione Prada in Milan, and Tlatelolco Cultural Center in Mexico City. Wanda Group plans to introduce "Carne y Arena" to China so that Chinese audience will have the opportunity to get the stunning experience brought by this high-tech film.

The 2017 Global Grad Show Exhibition Opens in Dubai with 200 Innovative Prototypes from 43 Countries

  [12-November-2017]  

DUBAI, UAE, November 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, and in partnership with Dubai Design District (d3) and supported by Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, the third edition of the acclaimed annual exhibition of life-changing inventions from graduates of the world's leading design and technology universities opens today in Dubai. Curated by renowned author and designer, Brendan McGetrick, the Global Grad Show presents 200 innovative projects selected from over 470 global entries. The selections will be presented at the Global Grad Show until 18 November, 2017 during Dubai Design Week.

     (Photo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/602251/TreeSense_Qian_Yedan.jpg )

A not for profit initiative, the Global Grad Show welcomes graduates from 92 universities to Dubai to present forward-thinking prototypes around the themes of empowerment, connection, and sustainability.

Furthermore, work from emerging markets rarely seen on a global scale are on view, including projects from designers based in Serbia, Uganda, Peru, Malaysia and New Zealand.

McGetrick curated the projects based on his personal interpretation of design that emphasises four categories: innovation that transcends technology and exists independent of wealth; equality without hierarchy amongst universities, regions and designers; universal design opens to all types of projects; and impact on the world at large through solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems.

"We organise Global Grad Show to be a celebration of beautiful ideas," McGetrick explains. "It features projects that are designed to directly benefit social and environmental causes. By presenting a cross section of design programs from around the world, we try to demonstrate how the brightest young minds are designing the future. The variety of programs offers a unique view to the ways in which designers in different places, with different budgets, cultural contexts, and tools develop solutions to the problems and opportunities of our time."

This year, Global Grad Show announces the inaugural Progress Prize, which will be awarded to one exhibiting project. The winning prototype will be selected by an international jury from fields of journalism, design, manufacturing, innovation and investment and demonstrate originality of idea, social impact, international relevance and feasibility.

Jury members include:

  • Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum -Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority
  • Mohammad Saeed Al Shehhi - CEO of Dubai Design District (d3)

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dubai Airshow â€�“ Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic), the world leader in inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC), and Emirates have today unveiled a range of industry firsts that will be introduced on the airline's newest Boeing 777-300ER on display at the Dubai Airshow this month.

The developments are the culmination of a more than 20-year partnership between Emirates and Panasonic to deliver an unmatched inflight entertainment experience. Throughout the partnership Panasonic and Emirates have remained at the forefront of passenger experience innovation, introducing a wide range of solutions including line-fit Wi-Fi connectivity along with a cutting-edge inflight entertainment system that is 12 percent lighter overall than previous versions.

Emirates' passengers will first experience the benefits of these solutions across all classes on the airline's newest Boeing 777-300ER fleet. These cabins will feature a refreshed look complemented with the very latest in IFEC technology. 

Advancements in IFEC technology, such as faster processing power, enables Emirates passengers to experience unrivalled seat back display with stunning clarity and picture quality. Passenger engagement levels are increased due to a more responsive IFEC system allowing passengers to immerse themselves further into the ice platform, Emirates' award-winning inflight entertainment system. In addition, passenger convenience is enhanced by the capability of fast charging of passenger electronics devices at the seat and the innovative First Class Room Service feature which allows passengers to experience the award winning Emirates cabin experience via the Mode Controller.

The true success of these advances is measured in Panasonic and Emirates commitment to the ecofriendly skies vision. Reduced IFEC system weight, which cuts fuel burn and emissions, and the desire to continue to push the IFEC experience forward with continuous innovation and industry firsts will challenge airlines to join Emirates as the world's leading smart airline.

In First Class, there will be a range of new Panasonic technologies that complement Emirates' own cabin innovations. These include:

  • A next generation mode controller â€�“ developed in the form of a slim tablet, acts as a second screen for seat and cabin environment control and to navigate ice. It features a larger, slim form13-inch capacitive touch screen offering Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a high definition camera, microphone and a speaker.
  • Wireless Handset Control â€�“ inspired by a pebble with smooth curves, this elegant, new wireless handset fits naturally in the palm of a passenger's hand. It provides untethered control of the ice entertainment system with a comfortable feeling of "Home TV Experience." The handset offers a full set of buttons like interactive navigation, channel, volume, flight attendant call, light, TV on/off, menu and sleep. The sleep button is unique and makes it convenient for passengers to press a single button to go to sleep mode and a second press to restore full functionality to the suite.
  • Room Service Video Call â€�“ this new feature enables passengers to communicate in real time with the cabin crew using a video chat functionality from the next-generation mode controller. Passengers will be able to place requests at their convenience via voice and video, and will also enjoy complete privacy with the device's Do Not Disturb mode settings.

In Business Class, a number of enhancements are being introduced including:

  • New 23" Smart Monitor â€�“ a new Full HD Smart Monitor with high-performance and crisp image quality offers the business class passengers a rich and entertaining experience. This is the largest monitor size in business class across Emirates fleet. It includes HDMI ports and capacitive touch screen capabilities.

In both First Class and Business Class, following enhancements are also included:

  • New High Power single USB Type-C Charging Jack â€�“ another first is the introduction of the High Power USB Type-C jack, the new standard for phone charging designed to provide passengers with access to high power charging as well as data. This is in addition to the existing high charge USB Type-A charging.
  • New HD-Premium Seat Box â€�“ this performance upgrade from the existing seat technology also supports two high power charging remote jack units and noise cancelling audio jacks. These premium HD seat boxes have an almost 20 percent higher graphic performance compared to other IFE system types.
  • New Slim Seat Power Module â€�“ this unique solution provides high power DC voltage for USB charging with reduced weight and a thinner profile.

In Economy Class, a series of new innovations offer Emirates a 35 percent reduction in weight while offering passengers the following technologies:

  • New 'Super Eco' Economy Monitors â€�“ the elegantly designed super Eco Monitor, complete with high-end, integrated physical control buttons, provides a luxury feel in the Economy class seat. With ultra-wide viewing angles, a capacitive touch screen, LED backlight and Full HD display, it delivers a superior, clear, crisp image quality. These new smart monitors will include high-power USB Type A and Type C, Bluetooth technology, a high-resolution camera, 3D multiplayer gaming and integrated audio connector. All of this new technology has been integrated into a slimmer, smaller monitor that features a 35 percent lighter design.
  • New Dual High Power Charging Ports â€�“ the Dual USB High Power jacks are designed to cater for the present and the new standard for phone charging designed to provide passengers with access to quick data and high power charging via USB Type-C (with both Type-A and Type-C) charging ports.
  • New Slim Seat Electronic Boxes â€�“ these slim, lightweight devices are designed to provide maximum performance and passenger device power yet have zero impact on passenger living space, and reduce weight by 22 percent.
  • New Slim Seat Power Module â€�“ this power source is intended to provide power for up to four seats of in-seat IFEC equipment and peripherals, with a lightweight and thinner profile unit that reduces weight. A new, proprietary power distribution solution provides, for the first time, a high charge USB charge port at every seat for passenger devices eliminating the need to share power with their neighbors.

Hideo Nakano, Chief Executive Officer for Panasonic Avionics Corp., said, "Panasonic and Emirates have worked together for over 20 years to provide best in class experiences for their passengers. Emirates challenged us two years ago to take another huge step forward with the ice experience in all classes of service, while reducing weight by 12 percent. Together, we did it."

New Book From Allen Carr's Easyway Teaches How To Successfully Manage Worry & Anxiety

  [12-November-2017]  

LONDON, November 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

- 'The Easy Way to Mindfulness' available from 15 November 2017

- #EasywaytoMindfulness 

- "I know so many people who have turned their lives around after reading Allen Carr's books." -
Sir Richard Branson

Coinciding with Self Care Week 2017, the world's leading authority on addictions and empowering 'self-help', Allen Carr's Easyway, has released a brand new title, The Easy Way to Mindfulness.  Mindfulness, well known as a way for coping with stress, anxiety and depression, is an approach that echoes the underlying principles of Allen Carr's Easyway method. Both work by unravelling the misconceptions that keep us trapped in a negative, harmful way of thinking.  Both help us to see that body and mind are components of an incredible machine and by developing a closer connection to our sensory system, we can maintain focus on the present and see things as they really are.  When we are able to challenge our negative thoughts, it leads to a clearer, more positive mindset and reverses the vicious circle of negativity and sets in motion a new cycle of health and happiness.  

All of this is presented simply and effectively in this exciting and hugely relevant new title from Allen Carr's Easyway. This book shares the proven principles of mindfulness and the Easyway method with a wider audience, in simple, accessible terms that apply to real life and provide a tangible, practical outcome - happiness.

Allen Carr's Easyway is the most successful stop-smoking method of all time. Over the past 30 years, it has helped millions of smokers from all over the world to quit.  Following on from its phenomenal success in helping smokers, the Allen Carr's Easyway approach has also successfully been applied to tackle other problems including e-cigarettes, alcohol, weight, drugs, anxiety, debt, gambling, fear of flying, sugar addiction and now Mindfulness. Interestingly, Mindfulness has always been at the heart of Carr's philosophy and Allen consistently explained his method was really about enabling people to find happiness.  Easyway has proved itself to be the leading method for overcoming addictions, but it can also be used to map out a route to a specific gateway, one that leads to a mindful existence.  

Following his death in 2006, Allen's lasting legacy is a dynamic, on-going, global publishing programme which helps treat a range of issues. Allen Carr's Easyway now has centres in more than 50 countries worldwide and the network continues to grow each year.

John Dicey, Global Managing Director & Senior Therapist of Allen Carr's Easyway and co-author and editor of Easy Way to Mindfulness comments:  

"Responsibility for ensuring our books are faithful to Allen Carr's original method is mine. I'm often asked to describe myself as the author of the books that we've published since Allen passed away. In my view - to claim authorship would make me an absolute charlatan. I didn't know anything about addiction before I had the good fortune to meet Allen Carr. Not only did he free me from an addiction that would otherwise have killed me a long time ago but he taught me everything he knew about addiction. How it works. How the Easyway method tackles it.

There's not a word in our new books that Allen didn't write or wouldn't have written if he was still with us today and for that reason, the few passages, anecdotes, and analogies that were not his own work, that were contemporised or added by me, are written clearly in Allen's voice. It was amazing to work closely with Allen on the books while he was alive and a responsibility to continue our work was something I was happy to have placed on me by him when he died.

The method is as pure, as bright and effective as it's ever been, proven by how simply and effectively it can be applied to the current trend, interest and demand for Mindfulness. We are delighted to be able to launch this new title at such a key time, with so many of us realising the importance of Mindfulness and the challenges of trying to incorporate it into our demanding and busy lives. This book will make Mindfulness a simple, straight-forward option that you can easily achieve, as part of a happier, healthier lifestyle."

Published by Arcturus. Available from 15 November 2017 in Paperback: £8.99, eBook: £6.99 and Audiobook: £9.99. Available from a variety of retailers including Amazon.co.uk and via www.allencarr.com.  

#EasywaytoMindfulness

Allen Carr's Easy Way to Mindfulness - 10 Tips for Today: 

  1. Throughout the day, take a few moments to bring attention to your breathing. Observe five mindful breaths. 


  2. Notice your body while you walk or stand. Take a moment to notice your posture. Pay attention to the contact of the ground under your feet. Feel the air on your face, arms and legs as you walk. 


  3. As you sit at your desk or workstation, take a few moments from time to time to tune in to your body sensations. Simply be present in your body for a few moments. 


  4. When you have a break, instead of reading the paper or searching on the internet, get away from your computer - take a short walk and get outside if you can. 


  5. Pay attention to what you eat. Notice at least two bites. Meditate on at least the first bite and the last bite of every meal. 


  6. Tune into a routine activity like brushing your teeth, putting on your shoes or washing up, paying full attention to the sensations occurring within this. 


  7. Notice sounds around you: cars, birds singing, phones ringing and people talking. Take a few moments to really listen to these. 


  8. Before rushing automatically from one activity to another, pause. Check into your body and notice how it feels at this point of transition, any sense of urgency, of being driven. Take the opportunity to breath before moving into the next task. 


  9. Use your journey home as a way of making a transition. Walk or drive mindfully. Take your time. 


  10. Before you go to sleep at night, take a few minutes and bring attention to your breathing. Observe five mindful breaths.

Shoppers spent their hearts away in Lazada's 11.11 sales bonanza; More than 3 times the number of items sold in first 60 seconds compared to last year

The shopping rush started at the stroke of midnight, when shoppers started grabbing the great deals and promotions. The number of items sold within the first 60 seconds this year more than tripled from last year. Nearly 8 in 10 people shopped with their mobile devices, reflecting the growing mobile penetration rate in the region.

Among the most popular items were the Xiaomi Mi A1 mobile phone, L'Oréal skincare products, Huggies diapers, Dumex milk formula and the digital players. Also sought after by shoppers were items from the Taobao Collection, which were specially selected from the world's largest online marketplace owned by Alibaba. They included watches, men's and women's apparel and kitchenware.

Shop and be entertained with Lazada

In a Lazada first, a star-studded gala show was held in Bangkok to count down to the sale's midnight start in Thailand. The first-of-its-kind interactive TV show, which was aired on Thailand's most watched Channel 3 and live-streamed on Lazada TV, featured Thailand's popular celebrities singing and taking part in interactive games. The 90-minute extravaganza drew more than 150,000 new Lazada app users.

Lazada's group chief marketing officer Charles Debonneuil said the inaugural TV programme underscores the synergy and sharing of ideas between Lazada and its parent company Alibaba, which throws an international standard live entertainment show to kick off its 11.11 Singles' Day sales. "Shopping doesn't have to be boring. By mixing entertainment with shopping we wanted to create a more engaging and enriching experience for the young generation of shoppers we cater to throughout Southeast Asia.

Largest Real Estate Transaction in Germany in 2017: RFR Holding Sells Extraordinary Real Estate Portfolio to SIGNA Prime

  [10-November-2017]  

FRANKFURT, Germany and VIENNA, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

  • The portfolio comprises five Trophy Assets: Highrise "Upper West" in Berlin, the High Street assets "Kaufmannshaus" and "Alsterarkaden" in Hamburg, development "Upper Zeil" in Frankfurt as well as the 50% RFR shareholding of the project "Karstadt at Munich Main Train Station" 
  • Largest real estate deal in Germany in 2017 with a volume of c. EUR 1.5 Bn in the most sought after locations of the 4 largest German cities Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Munich 
  • The long-term portfolio of SIGNA Prime is further diversified through the acquisition in terms of rental income, usage mix and long-term leases

SIGNA Prime Selection AG has recently acquired an extraordinary portfolio, comprised of five Trophy Assets in absolute prime locations in Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Munich from RFR Holding GmbH. With an absolute transaction volume of c. EUR 1.5 Bn, the transaction is the largest real estate deal in Germany in the year 2017. This extraordinary portfolio of assets comprises five Trophy Assets: Highrise "Upper West" in Berlin, the High Street assets "Kaufmannshaus" and "Alsterarkaden" in Hamburg, development "Upper Zeil" in Frankfurt as well as the 50% RFR shareholding of the project "Karstadt at Munich Main Train Station". The other 50% of the project is already owned by SIGNA Prim! e.

In summary this portfolio of high street assets comprises c. 160,000 m² of lettable area, spread over c. 70,000 m² retail, c. 55,000 m² office, c. 17.000 m² Hotel, c. 1,000 m² gastronomy as well as c. 17.000 m² other areas. The assets all have long-term secured and creditworthy tenants as well as a diversified usage mix with additional value-add potential. The close to fully let portfolio will, as is customary for SIGNA Prime, be held for the long-term, and will ensure the continued diversification of the portfolio in terms of rental income, usage mix and long-term leases.

The acquired assets are: 

The newly built Upper West in Berlin, which with a height of 119 meters is one of the tallest buildings in Berlin, and will be used as an office, hotel and retail location. Thanks to its attractive architecture from Christof Langhof, the building has a high recognition value and occupies a special place in the booming City West. The Upper West is showing itself to be a landmark asset in the absolute prime location of Berlin next to the Gedächtniskirche. The new build is comprised of a tower with 34 floors as well as a podium with 8 floors, and was completed in September 2017. The c. 53,000 m² lettable commercial area are essentially fully let. Main tenants are Motel One, Görtz Lawyers, WeWork and Görtz Shoes.

The Alsterarkaden, at the Jungfernstieg in Hamburg, which is based on the historical designs of Alexis de Chateauneuf for the Hamburg Rathausmarkt, is seen with its corner location to the shopping street "Neuer Wall" as the entry gate to the Hamburg luxury mile. The Alsterarkaden offer office tenants a beautiful view over the Binnenalster and the Rathausmarkt. The retail tenants profit from the tourists which walk along the Jungfernstieg and the Neuer Wall. Tenants include Wempe, Swatch, Douglas, and many more.

The in 1905 constructed, and in 2013 revitalised Kaufmannshaus presents itself in Hamburg with the historical exterior of a Kontorhaus, in the middle of the traditional shopping square of Hamburg (Große Bleichen), and offers high quality retail and office space to tenants. The Kaufmannshaus not only offers excellent gastronomy, but also retail with Marc Cain, Suitsupply, Guess, etc. which invite you to shop. The central location has attracted office tenants like Rent24, shipping company Offen, Norton Rose Fulbright, FCB and Yelp to sign up as tenants.

The commercial building Upper Zeil is being developed in Germany's shopping street with the highest frequency, between Galeria Kaufhof and MyZeil. The impressive glass façade of the building will spread over 45 meters and offer views into and onto the Frankfurt Zeil from all floors. The Upper Zeil is currently still in development, and will prospectively be completed end of 2018. This chance to place themselves at the hot spot of Frankfurt is being used by labels such as Benetton, Reserved, and Vodafone.

The asset Karstadt at the Munich Main Train Station offers unparalleled development potential direct in the heart of Munich, at the Munich Main Train Station. Here, SIGNA Prime will take over the remaining 50% shareholding from RFR. In a central location in Munich, between the Main Train Station and Stachus, the most important shopping street of Munich, will be created. The Schützenstraße will become a prolongation of the Neuhauser Straße, one of the most significant shopping streets in Germany. With the planned renovation of the main train station as well as the extension of the S-Bahn line, the Schützenstraße will only become even more important.

"The acquisition of this unique portfolio allows us to continue to build out the market position of SIGNA Prime as one of the leading European real estate companies, and to position itself as one of the largest European real estate companies," Timo Herzberg, Executive at SIGNA Prime Selection AG. 

"A transaction like this requires a lot of trust between the involved parties. We have had good, constructive and trusting discussions with SIGNA Prime from the start. That is why we are particularly happy to sell these extraordinary assets to one of the most successful real estate companies in Europe," Michael Fuchs, Founder RFR Group.

Sofidel Awards the Most Sustainable Suppliers in London

  [10-November-2017]  

LONDON, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Sofidel - known for its Regina Blitz household towel - just held the second Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Awards (3Sawards), acknowledging suppliers who have opted for environmental and social sustainability actions. Dame Ellen MacArthur joined the event at East Wintergarden and noted:

"I was delighted to speak at the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award ceremony to share my story and be a part of this important step from Sofidel to help improve sustainability across their full supply chain, which supports our shared value to accelerate the transition to a circular economy." 

As a company who has always put sustainability at the heart of its operations, the 3Sawards were born to motivate suppliers to enhance best practices of the industry and improve environmental and social sustainability across the full supply chain.

"Promoting sustainable and responsible growth also means engaging our partners in our vision and making them more aware of their environmental impacts," said Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of the Sofidel Group. "We're convinced that building a sustainable future will have to go through a widespread and shared commitment; the need to take on new and broader responsibilities."

The awards are based on the "TenP" project, built by the Global Compact Network Italia Foundation, of which Sofidel Group is founding member. A performance, self-assessment tool, built from the UN Global Compact's Ten Principles, it aims to identify challenges and provide solutions to improve sustainability within the supply chain.

Sofidel set up three categories:

  • Best Supplier, for companies that obtained the highest score based on the TenP platform. The winning companies were Suzano Pulp and Paper Europe, Valmet, Kuehne + Nagel and Vizeum Deutschland GmbH
  • Best Improver, for companies that were able to better their results by undergoing new sustainability and environmental procedures. The winning companies were Zellstoff- und Papierfabrik Rosenthal GmbH, Windsor Engineering (Hull) Limited, and LKW WALTER Internationale Transportorganisation AG
  • Best sustainable project, recognition that goes to companies that implemented a particularly relevant environmental and social sustainability initiative. The winning companies were Fibria International Trade GmbH, Skymark Packaging International Ltd, Dasara trasporti S.p.A., and Groupe SGP

Sofidel has always made sustainability a strategic lever of growth and to date have reduced direct emissions of CO2 to 19.1% and the use of water resources within production processes (7.0 l/kg compared to a benchmark of 15-25 l/kg), as well as obtaining 100% of cellulose supplies through certified forestry schemes.

European Business Review: A Potentially Damaging "Bidding War" has Broken out for Ownership of One of Russia's Most Prized Economic Assets

  [10-November-2017]  

BRUSSELS, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

In this article ( http://www.europeanbusinessreview.eu/page.asp?pid=2255 ) published on the European Business Review on November 10, 2017, Martin Banks notes that the Eurasia Drilling Company (EDC), a large Russian onshore and offshore drilling company covering some 16% of the Russian market, has attracted the attention of several foreign investors to acquire its stakes.

The author argues that EDC is currently the target for two major suitors. The glittering prize for any eventual victor is easy to see: control of a big - and independent - player in the lucrative oil service market. The biggest offer so far has come from Schlumberger, a US company, which for the second time is trying to strike a deal to acquire 51% stakes of EDC. The deal has to be validated by the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), which has expressed concern.

The author reports indeed Russia's deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich's declarations stating that the approval of any Schlumberger deal would be delayed due to the "unpredictable situation" regarding western sanctions against Russia: the fear is that sanctions could force EDC to halt its operations soon after any deal.

The second offer to invest $150 million in Eurasia Drilling Company comes from a joint investment fund composed of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Russia-China Investment Fund (RCIF) and investors from the Middle East, among them Saudi Arabian Saudi Aramco.

However, this new application is also controversial: the big concern is that such a deal will change the energy landscape and significantly increase the foreign presence in Russia's domestic energy markets. Indeed, latest data reveals the full scale to which foreign investors have now got a foothold in the highly lucrative Russian energy market.

The author remarks that the Tyumen Association of Oil and Gas Industry estimates that the share of foreign players in the national oil and gas market in Russia has grown six-fold from 2002 to 2012 and now accounts for no less than 65 per cent of the entire market.

Subsequently, the author reminds that it is not the first time that Schlumberger, already controlling some 11 per cent of the Russian oil service market, has tried to seize effective control of EDC in September 2015.

A successful Schlumberger bid now would increase the American company's investment stake in Russia to some 29 per cent. Schlumberger was rebuffed on the two previous occasions for much the same reason: rising fears that Russia was fast becoming a "honeypot" for overseas energy investors.

The author argues the spectre of another foreign presence on the energy scene in Russia does not sit easily with the authorities in Russia, who point to the "America-first" mantra being peddled by President Trump in the United States. Since his election, President Trump has made no secret of the fact that he will pursue a robust protectionist trade agenda. The appointment as Secretary of State of Rex Tillerson, formerly chief executive of oil giant Exxon Mobil also denotes renewed relevance of the energy sector in the US and has added to the uncertainty about future American energy policy, not just in Russia but around the world.

The author reports the declaration of one leading Brussels-based energy expert to the publication: "The feeling is that what is good for the US, that is, protecting its own markets, is good for other countries too and that includes Russia. Such developments and especially the sudden and unexpected introduction into the equation of Saudi Arabia - a country previously absent in the Russian energy market sector - have raised real and perfectly understandable concern among the country's energy experts and authorities."

The author concludes that with serious question marks against both the two current bids, the future of EDC remains unclear: however, as the Russian authorities are particularly keen to avoid yielding control of one of the country's most prized energy assets, it will not be a surprise if another would-be suitor emerges.

PRN: 'Find Me and Lose Yourself', a Campaign by a Finnish Artist and a German Body Painter to Promote Canary Islands Nature Tourism Fri, 10 Nov 2017 16:37:51 +0100 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459926.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/459926.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

'Find Me and Lose Yourself', a Campaign by a Finnish Artist and a German Body Painter to Promote Canary Islands Nature Tourism

  [10-November-2017]  

LAS PALMAS, Spain, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Using bodypainting as an artistic resource, human body is mimicked with nature, creating a visual game that serves as an analogy to the campaign's title, 'Meet Me and Lose Yourself', an inspiring proposal to recreate a landscape that invites you to merge within it

Canary Islands are synonymous with natural wealth, rivers of volcanic lava and rocky formations as in the futuristic films, multi-coloured sand beaches, endemic fauna and flora, high summits bathed by cloud seas, lush magical forests, deep ravines - A diversity of unique landscapes in which you can merge with nature, revitalize and recharge your energy.

That variety and immensity of nature is reflected in 'Meet Me and Lose Yourself', the latter promotional action of the Canary Islands tourist brand, in which the natural spaces of the Islands are highlighted by art and photography.

With an innovative creative approach, the action shows the richness and diversity of the natural landscapes of the Islands, which turns them into the ideal destination for nature tourism. The harmony between art and nature as a creative space dye this promotional action from Canary Islands towards Europe. Using bodypainting as an artistic resource, human body is mimicked with nature, creating a visual game that serves as an analogy to the campaign's title, 'Meet Me and Lose Yourself', an inspiring proposal to recreate a landscape that invites you to merge within it.

The realization has counted on the participation of two very renowned protagonists in Europe. One is the Finnish photographer of nature and influential instagramer Konsta Punkka; he gives testimony of this action through his profile in Instagram, @kpunkka, where he daily publishes impressive pictures that interact with many of the more than one million followers he has. The other one is the German artist Léonié Gené, an expert in body make-up and especially in themes related to nature.

The result consists of five artistic photographs, along with their corresponding gifs that reveal the person camouflaged in nature through a subtle movement of the model. The astonishing images have been taken in different landscapes of the Islands:

- The cardon is an endemic plant of the Canary Islands outstanding for its multiple arms in the shape of a large candelabrum. It is the protagonist of a unique ecosystem where we can find wonderful landscapes with spectacular examples. In this photo, we can see how the model fuses into one of them.

- In the Canarian archipelago, it is also possible to enjoy virgin beaches with white sand dunes that contrast with the black of the volcanic lava flows. In the image, we can see how the model is integrated within the jable in one of the beaches bathed by crystalline waters.

- In a landscape of lunar aspect, the rocks and the volcanic earth continue until they fuse with the body of the model. Almost as if it were a movie scenario, the lunar landscape seems out of this world. These amazing rock formations are the result of the erosion of wind and water that for thousands of years have been acting on the volcanic rock, giving rise to these capricious forms.

- The Canary Islands are one of the few refuges in the world for laurisilva forest, a plant formation composed of several species that disappeared in the Tertiary era. This moist and ghostly-looking forest is another scenario where the body of the model has been transformed into a tree trunk. A unique place to discover, to breathe deeply and feel the energy of the twisted trunks, covered with a moss mantle, and listen to all the secrets of our ancestors.

- The volcanic origin of the Canary Islands has created amazing landscapes, which do not look like belonging to this world. It is the case of the extensive fields of little eroded lava, known as Malpais for presenting an irregular and chaotic surface. A perfect scenario to integrate the body of the model through makeup, to the point that it is almost impossible to recognize it between rocks.

The Canary Island are a paradise of great wealth, whose diversity of natural landscapes make this destination the ideal place to discover, get lost and enjoy. A unique archipelago in which volcanic nature has a real revitalizing effect on people.

This project has been co-financed by 85% by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER in Spanish).
