"Borderline" Becomes Southeast Asia's First Contemporary Artwork to be Acquired by France's Guimet Museum

  [18-August-2019]  

HANOI, Vietnam, Aug. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Vietnamese art installation "Borderline" has become the first Southeast Asian artwork to be acquired by the esteemed Guimet Museum in Paris. Since April 2019, this exclusive collaboration between designer Yen Khe and the Haute-lacquer brand Hanoia has been a part of Guimet's collection - the most extensive selection of Asian art outside of Asia.

Over the last century, the Guimet Museum has been continually developing its collection to offer visitors a comprehensive view of Asian art history and civilization. The museum has over 50,000 objects on display in a 55,000-square-meter area.

Yen Khe is an internationally recognized actress having starred in many movies directed by the award-winner Tran Anh Hung. Throughout her career, she has combined interior architecture and design with her passion for films and has created numerous cinematic designs featuring innovative aesthetics.

"Borderline" is a future-oriented Asian art piece. Like lines in a poem, the artwork's design creates an imaginary world using contemporary design to explore Vietnam's traditional culture. On the spire of a non la, a traditional Vietnamese hat, runs a floral motif that blends into the lacquer background, behind which the barbed wire fence is shown with gold leaves. The vivid red and orange colours recall the secular architectural heritage of pagodas while displaying the effervescence of Vietnamese society.

Prior to "Borderline", Hanoia has notably worked as the designer and manufacturer of timeless art pieces such as the vintage egg-shelled Vespa in celebrations of Vespa 70th anniversary; or the special gift from Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc to former French President François Hollande during his official visit to Vietnam.

About Hanoia

Well known in Vietnam as the leading Haute-lacquer house, Hanoia is a trusted name by many international luxury brands, including the top luxury houses in Paris. Entrusted with the traditional know-how and a distinct flair for modernity, Hanoia stands out having successfully conjugated Vietnamese ancestral knowledge with contemporary designs. Within each item from masterpieces to everyday artworks, is the soul of Vietnam represented by their unique forms, striking colors and elegant patterns.

With eight stores nationwide, Hanoia has been continuously striving since its inception to establish a truly exceptional house of premium Vietnamese craft products.

Private Tuition Jobs: Tutors International Founder Issues Application Advice to Prospective Private Tutors

  [16-August-2019]  

Adam Caller, founder of leading private tuition company Tutors International, comments on the Dunbar number and advises prospective tutors to register for private tuition job alerts at tutors-international.net

OXFORD, England, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a surge in direct approaches from prospective private tutors, Tutors International founder Adam Caller has issued advice to educators recommending they register for private tuition job alerts at tutors-international.net. Due to the large volume of correspondence Tutors International receives, Mr Caller advises that this is the most reliable method of notification regarding new private tuition vacancies, and dissuades applicants from asking him to 'bear them in mind'.

Tutors International founder Adam Caller advises prospective tutors to register for private tuition job alerts at tutors-international.net

Citing Robin Dunbar's famous 'Dunbar Number' â€�“ 150 being the suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships â€�“ Caller explained, "I regularly receive speculative direct approaches from would-be tutors via email or telephone, enquiring if I can bear them in mind for suitable vacancies. I understand that prospective applicants are seeking to set themselves apart fr! om their competition, but given the vast number of private tutor applications I have processed over the past twenty years since Tutors International was founded, it's impossible for me to store and recollect details of educators I haven't yet met â€�“ and even to some extent, those who I have."

"This is why it is crucial that applicants instead register on the Tutors International database at tutors-international.net and sign up to our private tutor vacancy alert emails. Those registered on our site will be the first to receive notification of new vacancies, all of which are posted on tutors-international.net. A swift, well-thought-out application demonstrating a thorough match with the job specification will be the best way of putting yourself forward for consideration."

Tutors International has been in business since 1999 and has built up expertise in the international recruitment of top-class educators. Every application is assessed by a senior member of the Tutors International team, and all shortlisted applicants are interviewed in person.  All current jobs are listed on tutors-international.net - there are no others. If a position is listed, Tutors International is still accepting applications.

For further information on the application process, and to register for private tuition job alerts, prospective tutors are advised to visit tutors-international.net.

Colour and brilliance at the September Fair

  [16-August-2019]  

HONG KONG, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The finest coloured gemstones - set as centrepieces and embellishments in finished jewellery - will be among the focal points of what industry insiders view as the ultimate jewellery marketplace - the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.

The Fine Gem Pavilion, located in Hall 9 of the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE), will feature more than 70 of the world's top suppliers of coloured gemstones, including rare gem-grade materials coveted by legacy brands and collectors. The Gemstone Pavilion, where coloured gemstones in virtually every hue of the rainbow will be showcased, will occupy AWE's Halls 1, 3, 6, 8 and 10, and Hall 1 Concourse from September 16 to 20.

Buyers looking for statement pieces set with incredible gems will have their fill at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), which will feature the finished jewellery section of the show from September 18 to 22.

"The September Fair has always been known for its rich and diverse selection of coloured gemstones from top dealers, cutters and mine-to-market suppliers," says Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets. "This is the sourcing event for classic stones, exotic and hard-to-find gem material, and commercial-grade to mid-range quality gemstones. This fair offers a world-class experience to buyers."

Exhibitors ensure that compelling collections will be on tap at the September Fair.

Massa Gioconda S.A.S. of Italy will highlight collections of Mediterranean coral, Sleeping Beauty turquoise and shell cameos. "We have chosen to deal in natural and colourful materials with a glorious and long-term history and tradition. We offer high-quality products, from our raw materials selection to the final stage of the cutting and polishing process," the company says.

Thailand, one of the world's leading gemstone trading and manufacturing centres, will continue to shine at the September Fair with its roster of ruby, sapphire and fine gem suppliers. They include Blue Gems Co Ltd, which hopes to entice buyers with its exceptional selection of sapphires; Ansabro Gem Co Ltd, which will offer Zambian emeralds of a vivid green hue; and Penta Gems Co Ltd, which, will shine the spotlight on top-quality gems.

Claudia Hamann Edelstein GmbH of Germany would wow visitors with its fine gemstone layouts. One of standout pieces is a bracelet layout consisting of pink sapphires and brown spinels in double rose cut from Tanzania.

Japan-based Anjali Jewels Co Ltd will promote its precision-cut gemstones at the fair. "We will also showcase our finest cut - a Tanzanite pair - which is extremely difficult to make," Anjali Jewels shares. The precision cut is a mix of brilliant and step cut facets.

Hong Kong suppliers are also ready to launch their gemstone inventories.

Described by many as a gemstone that represents perfection and beauty, the opal will occupy centre-stage position at Hang Fong Opal Co's booth. Specialising in the production of opal doublets and triplets from Australia's famed Coober Pedy opal fields, the supplier targets gemstone wholesalers and jewellery designers.

A gemstone loved for its apple-green colour, chrysoprase sourced from Australia will be among the top exhibits of Po Yuen Gems Co.

Gleam Gems & Jewelry will impress buyers with its wide range of natural Sleeping Beauty turquoise in 5mm to 10mm round bead strands.

Fancy Gems will focus on blue and fancy sapphires, garnets, amethysts, aquamarines and rubies in graduating colours and in sizes ranging from 0.8mm to 5mm.  The supplier will also present unusual layouts like its rainbow sapphire earring sets and calibrated cabochons.

PRN: Artprice by Art Market: Latest Auction Records in Photography Fri, 16 Aug 2019 09:40:36 +0200 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/590033.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/590033.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Artprice by Art Market: Latest Auction Records in Photography

  [16-August-2019]  

Auction turnover from Post-War and Contemporary Art photographs

PARIS, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Although Photography currently accounts for just under 2% of the total value of the global secondary art market, the medium has become a permanent feature of the art world after a lengthy process of acceptance that dates back to the end of WWII and which has markedly accelerated in the last two decades. Today, the world's most influential galleries all devote energy and space to the photography medium. David Zwirner, for example, officially represents 66 artists, of whom nine are photographers.

 

Auction turnover from Post-War and Contemporary photographs

 

Being a relatively recent art form, the world's top-selling artists in the photography segment are not contemporaries of the world's top-selling early 20th century artists in other media (painting, sculpture or print). They are much closer to us... and in most cases are our contemporaries.

thierry Ehrmann, Artprice's founder/CEO, sees extraordinary potential: "Photography's share in the Art Market is not yet fully developed so it still offers exceptional opportunities for young art-lovers to start their collection. As the medium has morphed from analog to digital, an entirely new market has emerged with its own codes, its own references and even its own specific museology. This new market has managed to encompass the iconic photos of the major press agencies along with photographs created as art. The market recognises that as soon as the personality of a photographer permeates his/her work, the author of that oeuvre may be considered an artist. Artprice â€�“ the world leader in the collection and distribution of Art Market information since its creation in 1987 â€�“ has always considered photography an artistic medium in its own right. In the 1980s and 1990s it was still considered a 'distant relation' to Contemporary art."

In historical terms, photography's artistic maturity is happening now! That is why international events like the Rencontres d'Arles are so important and significant and why we are seeing the emergence of a number of new photographers whose market prices are moving very rapidly.

2. Kourtney ROY (b. 1981) - Sorry, No Vacancy 7 (2017)

3. Erik MADIGAN HECK (1983) - Dior Couture (2014)

4. ZENG Yicheng (b. 1975) - The Silent Sermon (拈花微ç¬�‘) (2018)

5. Mario MACILAU (b. 1984) - Untitled, Project (10) 
$14,500 â€�“ 15 May 2019 - Piasa Paris

The four pillars of the market

Photographers whose works regularly fetch 7-digit sums (in USD) at auction can be counted on one hand. There is the German, Andreas Gursky, the Americans, Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman, and the British duo, Gilbert & George. Born in the 1940s and 1950s, these artists are represented by the prestigious galleries Gagosian, Skarstedt, Thaddaeus Ropac and White Cube who continue to show their new works.

At the 2013-2014 highpoint in global auction sales of photographs, these four top-selling signatures accounted for 38% of the segment's total auction turnover. But their performances have substantially contracted over the past four years, as indeed have sales of all Post-War photography around the world. To a large extent, the results of these four photographers reflect the appetite of collectors for photography in general.

Nevertheless... the photography market is still four times bigger than it was twenty years ago.

New records

Some 19 photographers, other than Gursky, Prince, Sherman and Gilbert & George, have generated at least one result above the 1 million-dollar threshold over the last 20 years. Among these we find Hiroshi Sigimoto (4), Jeff Wall (2), Piotr Urlanski (1).

Earlier this year, the American fashion photographer Helmut Newton also crossed this symbolic threshold for the first time.

1. Helmut NEWTON (1920-2004) â€�“ Sie Kommen, Paris (1981)
$1,820,000 â€�“ 4 April 2019 â€�“ Phillips New York

2. Helena ALMEIDA (1934-2018) â€�“ Dentro de mim (2000) 
$128,400 â€�“ 20 February 2019 â€�“ Veritas Lisbon

3. Richard MISRACH (b. 1949) â€�“ Untitled #328-02 (2002)
$125,000 â€�“ 2 April 2019 â€�“ Christie's New York

4. Consuelo KANAGA (1894-1978) â€�“ Profile of a Young Girl (1948)
$106,2505 â€�“ 4 April 2019 â€�“ Phillips New York

5. Peter HUJAR (1934-1987) â€�“ David Wojnarowicz (1985) 
$106,250 â€�“ 20 June 2019 â€�“ Swann New York

Helmut Newton died in 2004 at the age of 84 and his prices are continuing to climb. He was in fact the top-selling photographer at auction in the first half of 2019 thanks to the sale of Sie Kommen, Paris (1981), a quadriptych measuring 193 by 88cm from an edition of 3, the first of which reached $1.8 million on 4 April 2019 at Phillips in New York. That result set a new personal record for Helmut Newton, but, more significantly, it was the year's highest photography result so far.

Demand for work by Portuguese photographer Helena Almeida is also growing rapidly, albeit in a lower price range. A retrospective in Paris in 2016 and her death last autumn have largely contributed to inflating the prices of her works. On 20 February 2019, her Dentro de mim (2000) reached $128,000 in Lisbon, a posthumous consecration for an artist who twice represented Portugal at the Venice Biennale, in 1982 and again in 1995.

Asian photography

Photography remains a niche market in Asia... with the exception of Japan, of course, which clearly established itself as a world leader of the photography industry and has produced some of the most famous Post-War and Contemporary photographers, including Nabuyoshi Araki (b. 1940) and Hiroshi Sugimoto (b. 1948).

Chinese artists seldom choose to work exclusively in the photographic medium, but some use it occasionally like the artist Liu Wei (b. 1972). Recognized by the 2016 Award of Art China (AAC), he is famous for his futuristic oil paintings, as well as his videos and installations. But Liu Wei also produced one of the few Chinese photographs that has ever sold above $100,000 at auction. On 1 April 2019, one of five prints of his very large 5-part work entitled Landscape â€�“ shown for the first time at the Shanghai Biennial in 2004 â€�“ fetched $191,000 at Sotheby's in Hong Kong.

Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur Has Formulated Detailed Service Specifications to Help Travel of Passengers Carrying Pets and Visually and Hearing Impaired Passengers

  [16-August-2019]  

BEIJING, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The travel problems of special groups such as passengers carrying pets and visually and hearing handicapped passengers have attracted more and more attention. Recently, Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur issued the industry's first refined service standards for six categories of passengers including passengers carrying pets and visually and hearing handicapped passengers, providing better travel experience to these users.

With the rapid development of economy and the continuous improvement of people's living standards, more and more people keep pets. The travel of pets has become a major problem for pet owners. For passengers with pets, Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur has formulated detailed service specifications, such as driving smoothly while carrying pets; after the order is completed, the driver needs to clean and disinfect the car comprehensively.

Considering the actual travel difficulties of visually and hearing impaired passengers, Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur has formulated special service specifications: for the hearing impaired passengers, the driver will communicate with them via the instant messaging function in the app, and help them open the door when they exit the vehicle; for visually impaired passengers, the driver should first help open the door when the passengers are exiting the vehicle and confirm whether there is anything left behind, and then escort the passengers to the sidewalk.

Through such service standards, Shouqi Limousine & Chauffeur hopes that people with pets will have no need to worry about travelling, and the visually and hearing impaired will be able to go out of their homes and enjoy their lives.

Nordic Enterprises Look to SAP S/4HANA for Finance and Supply Chain Management

  [16-August-2019]  

ISG Provider Lens™ report finds Nordic enterprises also embracing SAP to help with blockchain projects

STOCKHOLM, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprises in the Nordic countries are embracing SAP's S/4HANA software for finance and supply chain management and to adopt blockchain, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2019 ISG Provider Lens™ SAP HANA and Leonardo Ecosystem Partners Report for the Nordics finds many enterprises in the region slowly adopting public cloud services for S/4HANA, with many SAP-related providers building industry-specific solutions for the ERP software suite. Nordic enterprises are seeking SAP solutions as a way to achieve faster time-to-market for their products, the report notes.

"SAP HANA technology has had a strong impact in changing the market," said Barry Matthews, partner and head of ISG North Europe. "SAP S/4HANA allows users to radically simplify database structures within the SAP Business Suite, and updates to SAP's software give customers agility and the ability to speed up innovation."

Meanwhile, providers are seeing a shortage of SAP talent in the Nordic region. They are addressing the staffing shortage by entering into partnerships, training college students, cross-training employees and setting up nearshore facilities in Europe, the report says. Poland is emerging as a nearshore option for SAP services, the report adds.

SAP providers also are using software bots and other automated tools to offer support and resolve incidents, the report says. Bots also are helping service providers reassign staff to higher value and more complex tasks.

The report also examines the SAP Leonardo market and finds many Nordic enterprises slow to adopt the software and microservices package that enables customers to leverage technologies like the Internet of Things, machine learning, blockchain, analytics and big data.

Vision Engineering Announces the Global Launch of the World's First Ultra-high Definition Digital Stereoscopic 3D-view Microscope

  [16-August-2019]  

Pioneer of the ergonomic eyepiece-less Mantis microscopes announces worldwide launch of DRV-Z1 digital stereoscopic display systems with real time transmission and viewing of 3D images

LONDON, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Engineering, a manufacturer of high quality visual inspection and measurement technologies, launches its latest, innovative flagship product Deep Reality Viewer (DRV-Z1) microscope.

The HD 3D image of an engine component produced by the DRV-Z1 microscope

Designed at its Woking, UK HQ, the DRV-Z1 enables the user to view high definition 3D images under magnification without using a flat screen, or requiring operators to wear goggles or specialist glasses. Uniquely, by linking multiple DRV systems via wired or wireless technologies, users can share and manipulate 3D images of components, parts or products in real time.

The DRV-Z1 is set to transform supply network collaboration in manufacturing and quality, design and rapid prototyping and even in the healthcare and medical sectors. The ability to simultaneously share and discuss full 3D images of critical parts, repairs or design enhancements without any delay offers Tangible benefits. In terms of transfer of vital information and quality of view, colleagues across multi-site organisations, suppliers and their customers and designers and manufacturing engineers can use the DRV's real time connectivity to significantly accelerate and improve both product design and client response.  

Worldwide, companies and their workforces already recognise the importance of the ergonomic benefits that Vision Engineering products provide, addressing well-documented issues such as operator fatigue and eyestrain, which both result in reduced operator efficiency and productivity. Using Vision Engineering's globally patented TriTeQ3 digital 3D display technology, the DRV-Z1 moves these advantages even further forward, combining improved ergonomics with real time transfer of 3D product images for rapid and informed decision-making. DRV-Z1 systems are designed to address the important quality control and production requirements in sectors including electronics, aerospace, automotive and medical industries.

Mark Curtis, managing director, Vision Engineering comments:

"This breakthrough technology sets a new industry standard, offering users an incredible 3D viewing experience, without the need for glasses or headsets. The ability to share high definition images with other users anywhere in the world presents a huge opportunity to improve standards across key industries such as healthcare, manufacturing and the automotive sector."

Wirecard Offers Fast Track PSD2 Onboarding and Records Strong New Customer Growth in This Area

  [16-August-2019]  
  • From September 14, new regulations apply in Europe, including authentication for online shopping and banking
  • Wirecard automatically offers large as well as small and medium-sized merchants the prerequisites for two-factor authentication (3D Secure 2)

From 14 September 2019, new rules will apply in the European Union that stipulate that every online payment or banking user must authenticate himself twice (3D Secure 2): this is a combination of knowledge such as a password or PIN, items in his personal possession such as a credit card, or biometrics such as his own fingerprint. For online merchants, this means that they have to change their payment acceptance in the backend to at least two of these three factors.

Wirecard supports its corporate customers in this transition and also offers a Fast Track PSD2 Onboarding Service for all new customers. Both large customers and small and medium-sized merchants using for example the SUPR by Wirecard solution â€�“ the Group's online shop software â€�“ benefit from this. Wirecard has already recorded a sharp increase in new customer registrations in recent months and expects a further increase of 15% in August compared with July.

Sreelekha Sankar, EVP Payment & Risk at Wirecard, said, "We see the current period shortly before the transition to the new PSD2 regulations very positively. Thanks to our fast digital service offering, our merchants have nothing to be concerned about. Of course, we are pleased that, as a result, we are seeing an above-average number of new customers, both in the large merchant segment on the Wirecard platform as well as in the SME segment via SUPR."

PRN: Model Citizenship by Investment Programme Funds New International Airport in Transformed Dominica Thu, 15 Aug 2019 22:40:13 +0200 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/589873.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/589873.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Model Citizenship by Investment Programme Funds New International Airport in Transformed Dominica

  [15-August-2019]  

LONDON, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Commonwealth of Dominica continues to attract reputable global individuals to its world-leading Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme, thanks to which this Caribbean island has undergone a remarkable transformation. During his annual budget address, the Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, revealed that one of the anticipated projects sponsored by the CBI Programme is the construction of an international airport. The Government has secured technical support from the World Bank with funding partly deriving from the island's CBI Programme. 

 

Dominica Citizenship by Investment Application Process - Step by Step - www.cbiu.gov.dm

 

For over two decades, Dominica has been offering highly vetted investors and their families a means of acquiring its citizenship through an economic contribution. Successful applicants gain access to a wealth of benefits, including increased global mobility to approximately 140 destinations, enhanced business prospects, physical safety and financial security. Despite the lack of mandatory residence, economic citizens of the island have come to be recognised as part of Dominica's Global Community, a concept that transcends land borders.

Dominica's financial management has received glowing reviews from international institutions too, including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the Caribbean Development Bank. During a radio interview, PM Skerrit said that "in the Caribbean, Dominica is a model." Moreover, CBI has contributed greatly to the island's ecotourism offering and the livelihood of its residents, which in turn opens new opportunities for its economic citizens. "With the advent of the establishment of a number of five-star hotels, international airport and cruise village, Dominica is at the cusp of a major transformation of its tourism industry," mentioned Premier Skerrit.

Foreign investors interested in obtaining Dominica's citizenship have two routes to choose from: contributing to the Economic Diversification Fund (EDF) or buying into selected real estate. The EDF is particularly popular with single applicants as it requires a convenient one-time contribution of US$100,000. Alternatively, the real estate option involves investing in shares of internationally branded resorts and luxury boutique hotels.

Dominica's CBI Programme has been hailed as the world's best offering for economic citizenship in the last two CBI Index reports. Experts at the Financial Times' Professional Wealth Management magazine cite affordability, certified vetting standards and efficiency as key reasons for Dominica's leadership in the investor immigration industry. Processing of eligible applicants takes four months or less, provided all due diligence checks and other requirements are successfully completed.

Ayako Rokkaku: 'Fumble in Colors, Tiny Discoveries'

  [15-August-2019]  

8 June â€�“ 25 August 2019: Last ten days of exhibition

AMSTERDAM, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Museum Jan van der Togt is proud to present the exhibition 'Fumble in colors, tiny discoveries' by the Japanese artist Ayako Rokkaku. In addition to installing new paintings, Rokkaku will also provide a retrospective of the work she produced in recent years.

Ayako Rokkaku, Untitled (ARP18-024), 2018, acrylic on canvas, 200 x 300 cm., signed.

Painting technique

Rokkaku never attended art school but is completely self-taught, developing her own unique painting technique. She applies acrylic paint directly to the canvas or cardboard with her bare hands. She starts painting without a predefined idea, painting what comes naturally until a composition slowly starts to emerge. A dreamy, colorful landscape, with tiny floating flowers, animals and skulls. A recurring element in her work is the prominent presence of young girls, which she paints in the manga style, with large eyes and long limbs. Rokkaku considers these girls a way of expressing her personality in her paintings.

The diminutive artist, who is just 1.56 m tall, regularly demonstrates her painting technique during live painting performances, working on canvases that can be up to 7 meters wide. "I love painting on something that is much bigger than I am. Moving to and fro between the corners of such a huge canvas makes me feel as if the colors are flowing through my body." In recent years, Rokkaku has experimented with various new techniques and materials, creating wool and cardboard installations, sculptures made from layered acrylate and hand-painted antique Louis Vuitton suitcases.

Ayako Rokkaku

Global citizen Ayako Rokkaku (b. Chiba, 1982) lives and works alternatingly in Berlin, Porto, Tokyo and Amsterdam. She created her first paintings in 2002, applying acrylic paint to cardboard with her bare hands. Her work soon caught the critics' eye. In 2003 and 2006, she won prizes at Geisai, an art fair for emerging artists in Tokyo, organised by the world-famous artist Takashi Murakami (b. Tokyo, 1962).

Since her first solo show at Gallery Delaive in 2007, Rokkaku has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and at art fairs in Asia, Europe and the United States. She has had solo shows in Rotterdam's Kunsthal and the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Slovakia, which attracted thousands of visitors. Art connoisseurs consider Rokkaku to be one of the most promising contemporary artists.

The exhibition was developed in collaboration with Gallery Delaive, Amsterdam.

In a 60-patient clinical study done with the Venus Bliss™ device, all participants received a single 1064nm diode laser treatment to either their flanks or abdomen.

This is why we're excited to announce the clearance of Venus Bliss™, our fat reduction solution for the abdomen and flanks. The Venus Bliss™ is comfortable for patients, provides excellent results, and has little-to-no downtime.

Clear Media Announces 2019 Interim Results

  [15-August-2019]  

HONG KONG, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Clear Media Limited ("Clear Media" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; SEHK Stock Code: 100), the largest bus shelter advertising panel operator in China, is pleased to announce its interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2019.

During the period, the Group's total turnover decreased by 13.4% to RMB742.2 million due to challenging operating environment. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation ("EBITDA") increased by 27.8% to RMB396.1 million due to the effect of adoption of HKFRS 16. Excluding the effect of the adoption of HKFRS 16, EBITDA would have decreased by 54.9% to RMB139.6 million.

Net loss[1] was RMB58.2 million as compared to the net profit[1] of RMB76.2 million in the same period last year. Excluding the effect of adoption of HKFRS 16, net loss would have decreased to RMB41.4 million which was mainly due to the decrease in revenue. Basic loss per share was RMB10.76 cents (1H2018: basic earnings per share of RMB14.09 cents).

As of 30 June 2019, Clear Media operated the most extensive, standardised bus shelter advertising network in Mainland China, with a total of more than 54,000 panels (as of 30 June 2018: 54,000 panels) covering 24 cities. The Company's bus shelter advertising revenue, net of value added tax, decreased by 13.5% year on year to RMB738.0 million.

The average number of bus shelter panels increased by 3.0%. Yield per bus shelter before value added tax ("yield") decreased by 16.0% year on year. The decrease was mainly caused by the decline in overall occupancy rate.

For the six months ended 30 June 2019, the revenue from the top three cities Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing decreased by 17.4% to RMB451.9 million (1H2018: RMB547.0 million), driven by a lower average occupancy rate of bus shelter panels 43.5% (1H2018: 61.9%). The revenue from all mid-tier cities also decreased by 7.5% to RMB330.4 million (1H2018: RMB357.1 million).

As of 30 June 2019, the Company operated a total of 247 digital panels in Nanjing (as of 30 June 2018: 251). Total sales generated from the digital panel advertising operation, net of value added tax, amounted to RMB4.2 million (1H2018: RMB4.3 million).

Mr. Han Zi Jing, Chief Executive Officer of the Group, said, "Management expects the operating environment for the second half of 2019 to remain challenging as uncertainties continue in the external environment and the overall China economy. The majority of key customers from the e-commerce and IT industries are expected to remain cautious with their spending."

Mr. Joseph Tcheng, Chairman of the Group, said, "The Group is intensifying its efforts to broaden the customer base, realign the sales organisation to improve effectiveness and implement cost savings initiatives. Despite the above strategies, if the revenue trend of the first half of 2019 continues into the second half of 2019, the Group expects to record a net loss for the full year of 2019."

Compare Bonds Take the Bond Market by Storm

  [15-August-2019]  

LONDON, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Amidst all the uncertainty in the current financial market, there is one aspect that all investors agree on, and that is the bond market remains one of the few safe havens remaining.

Compare Bonds are disrupting the money markets by offering a bond comparison service that has shaken up the industry. A bespoke offering that provides an impartial recommendation to each and every client, which is almost unheard of in the industry.

Such has been the demand by subscribers that Compare Bonds have been forced to open a second office to cater to the needs of their clientele. A Compare Bonds spokesperson stated: "It's clear that investors are looking for advice without an agenda, and nobody on the market apart from us is providing that."

Where Compare Bonds are unique in their approach is that they actively search for bond opportunities which meet their client's requirements, rather than forcing a bond to a client and convincing them it is the right choice.

Compare Bonds proactively inform their customers of scams in the financial market and have been praised for their 'customer first' stance which stands alone in a sea of companies that seek to push their own itinerary. Their customers have been alerted to several large-scale scams before the major news outlets were even aware, and it is this attention to detail that sets Compare Bonds apart from the competition.

In the face of Brexit, investors are more wary than ever. Uncertainty is rife. The last thing that people need is ambiguity with their advice. Compare Bonds understand that potential investors have worked hard for their capital and require advice that reflects dedication.

PRN: Infused Drinks Offer Consumers a New Way to Ingest Cannabis Thu, 15 Aug 2019 11:40:33 +0200 http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/589863.html http://zend.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/589863.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Infused Drinks Offer Consumers a New Way to Ingest Cannabis

FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary

  [15-August-2019]  

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, health officials conduct new clinical trials to uncover the next generation of medical treatments. Recently, cannabidiol or CBD has become an increasingly popular option because of its therapeutic effects. Additionally, CBD can be used for both recreational and medical purposes. Predominantly, the CBD medical sector is expected to account for the majority of the overall industry as, specifically, the therapeutic grade segment is expected to be the primary driver for the market. For instance, in 2018, the therapeutic grade segment accounted for 58% of the global CBD market. The compound is now primarily being used to treat neuropsychiatric disorders as well as other chronic conditions. And notably, the fibromyalgia segment dominated the industry in 2018 with a market valuation of USD 686.19 Million. Additionally, the CBD indus! try was p rimarily driven by the increasing instances of physiological disorders among young adults, while symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and other types of discomfort led the fibromyalgia disorder segment. Extensive research has also concluded that CBD can effectively be used to reduce pain, improve sleep, and reduce headstrong pains for people suffering with fibromyalgia. Additionally, CBD is also known to treat migraines and irritable bowel syndrome. While CBD isn't yet considered an approved treatment in most countries, medical institutions and researchers are continuing to evaluate its efficacy. Now, based on the overwhelmingly positive results of many trials, the CBD industry is positioned to become a flourishing medical market. And according to data compiled by Fior Markets, the global CBD industry was valued at USD 1.45 Billion in 2018. By 2026, the market is projected to reach USD 17.34 Billion whil! e exhibit ing a CAGR of 36.3% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2026. BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (OTC: BVNNF) (CSE: BEV), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB), Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYNE), Charlotte's Web Holdings, Inc. (OTC: CWBHF) (TSX: CWEB), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (OTC: TGODF) (TSX: TGOD)

Medical cannabis can be ingested in various ways, however, most people tend to either smoke or vape it. The most common consumption method is smoking dried cannabis flower through rolled joints or other paraphernalia. Consumers also vape cannabis-based extracts or concentrates because it is much more potent and delivers faster than smoking. While smoking and vaping are the most popular methods, savvy consumers and entrepreneurs have developed other innovative ways to consume cannabis. For instance, edibles and topicals have become highly popular because they don't involve the harmful effects of smoking or vaping. However, cannabis-infused beverages have also become highly popular because they introduced a completely new method to ingest cannabis. Generally, consumers can find beverages such as coffee, soda, juice, tea, and alcohol, packed with either THC or CBD. And typically, most infused beverages contain minimal traces of THC or CBD so they are not highly potent. Recre! ational u sers can simply enjoy an infused beverage to relax. On the other hand, medical patients may seek to consume infused beverages to treat their mild ailments. Predominantly, CBD-infused beverages are much more common because they are globally more accessible and available. However, in some instances, patients suffering from unbearable conditions that cause immense discomfort may prefer to use a tetrahydrocannabinol or THC-based solution. While CBD and THC can both effectively treat conditions, the mind-altering and cerebral effects of THC are much more effective in suppressing symptoms. Despite the efficiency of THC, many producers aim to negate or minimize the psychoactive properties by mixing CBD content into THC dominant products, thereby reducing the mind-altering effects while maintaining the therapeutic benefits. For example, some products can be an 80-20 mix of CBD to THC, which would not cause any psychoactive effects on the consumer. Depending on the severity, some pa! tients ma y opt for a 50-50 mix of CBD to THC. "CBD is the most promising drug that has come out for neuropsychiatric diseases in the last 50 years," said Dr. Esther Blessing, an Assistant Professor at New York University School of Medicine. "The reason it is so promising is that it has a unique combination of safety and effectiveness across of very broad range of conditions."

BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (OTC: BVNNF) (CSE: BEV) is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (CSE: BEV). Yesterday, the Company announced breaking news that, "their proprietary powder ingredient, Deeper Green™, has successfully completed independent laboratory testing.

Deeper Green is a tasteless, odorless, water-soluble powdered ingredient, and has been proven to be a stable ingredient that when tested with THC, consistently delivers target concentrations within one batch (±0.3%) and from batch-to-batch (±0.6%).

'The successful testing of Deeper Green is exciting in that it will extend BevCanna's assortment of products,' said Emma Andrews, Chief Commercialization Officer at BevCanna. 'As beverage experts, we're already planning a number of ready-to-drink formulations, and we can now add powdered options to our range.

The new sites in Quebec and British Columbia will be used for cultivation research to develop new technology, genetics and intellectual property in order to drive sustainable, high-quality outdoor production.

Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYNE) is the leader in pharmaceutically-produced transdermal cannabinoid therapies for rare and near-rare neuropsychiatric disorders. Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. recently announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had granted Fast Track Designation for the Company's lead development candidate Zygel™ (ZYN002 CBD gel) for treatment of behavioral symptoms associated with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS). FDA's Fast Track program is designed to facilitate the development of drugs intended to treat serious conditions and fill unmet medical needs and can lead to expedited review by FDA in order to get new important drugs to the patient earlier. Zygel (CBD gel) is the first and only pharmaceutically-manufactured CBD formulated as a patent-protected permeation-enhanced clear gel, designed to provide controlled drug delivery into the bloodstream transdermally (i.e. through the skin). Recent studies suggest that FXS and othe! r neurops ychiatric conditions may be associated with a disruption in the endocannabinoid (EC) system. "The FDA's decision to grant Fast Track Designation for Zygel underscores the significance and severity of the unmet medical need that exists for patients living with Fragile X Syndrome and their caregivers," said Armando Anido, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zynerba. "We believe that Zygel has the potential to be the first treatment indicated to directly address the core behavioral symptoms of this syndrome, and we look forward to working closely with the FDA to obtain approval to market Zygel as soon as possible."
