Keep Walking Colombia: 6,000 Colombians Unite in Nudity and Make a Stand for Peace

leave a comment »

BOGOTA, Colombia /PRNewswire/ —

New film from Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art and Johnnie Walker® tells the human stories of progress and hope from the front line of the Colombian civil war

“Right wing or left wing, nude we are equal,” says Wilson Barreto.

Wilson was blinded by a FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) bomb attack in Bogota when he was just 19. He is one of more than 6,000 people from all sides of the Colombian civil war who posed nude at Bolívar Square, Bogota, to make a stand for peace in a unifying art installation by renowned American photographer Spencer Tunick.

The installation – Tunick’s largest in six years – captured the optimistic mood of a nation on the road to peace and is the inspiration for the short documentary film Keep Walking Colombia, from Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art (MAMBO) and Johnnie Walker®.

Released to coincide with Colombian Independence Day (July 20) – a day that marks Colombia’s Declaration of Independence from Spain – Keep Walking Colombia charts the stories of five Colombians as they take part in the creation of the art installation and iconic photograph.

In the film, Wilson stands with Luis, the FARC commander responsible for the bomb attack that cost him his sight – a man he now considers a very good friend. Wilson features in the powerful short film alongside civilian victim Pilar Navarrete, ex-army officer Pablo Emilio Moncayo, ex-right wing paramilitary activist Ederlidia Garizao and Maria Esperanza Sierra, a former FARC combatant.

“After half a century of conflict, the people of Colombia are driving their nation forward on the road to peace and freedom through their openness and unyielding hope for the future,” said Claudia Hakim, Director of MAMBO Colombia.

“These stories, told through art and film, transcend matters of politics, belief or national affiliations. They are the stories of people who have endured so much, and are determined to embrace the possibilities of a shared future.”

Pilar Navarrete’s husband disappeared during the siege at the Palace of Justice in Bogota in 1985 and his body was never found. Pilar said of her participation in the nude photograph and documentary: “I feel like I’m paying homage. I’m going to bare my soul and my body and tell everyone about Hector Jaime Beltrán.

“I’m very proud of the Colombian people. We’ve experienced a lot of pain but we are still smiling. We want and aim to be a country that includes everybody.”

Pablo Moncayo, who was held captive by FARC for 12 years, said: “We are all equal. Whatever differences you may see, we all have blood in our veins; we are all made of skin and bones.”

Daniel Leahy, Global Content Director at Johnnie Walker, said: “It is a privilege for us to be able to help get these incredibly inspiring stories out into the world. Johnnie Walker has always stood for progress and last year we launched a campaign that explored the idea that a positive outlook can help people achieve that.

“Keep Walking Colombia tells the stories of five Colombians who, despite their history of conflict, believe in a better tomorrow. Working with Spencer Tunick has allowed us to tell these inspiring, human stories which highlight the bravery, the positivity, and the willingness of those affected by unimaginable tragedy and adversity to build a better tomorrow.

“And while this is a Colombian story, we believe the sentiment of optimism and positivity as a route towards progress is something that will resonate with people all over the world.”

— 280,000-square foot LEED-certified building to include flexible workspaces and labs
DARMSTADT, Germany /PRNewswire/ — Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced plans to build a new campus in Burlington, Massachusetts that will serve as a major hub for the North American life science business of Merck. The 280,000-square-foot facility will include a customer collaboration laboratory and training center as well as office space.

“This new and more expansive Merck campus gives us a unique, multi-use life science hub in the United States — one that provides our employees and customers with a sustainable and collaborative working environment,” said Udit Batra, Member of the Merck Executive Board and CEO, Life Science. “We have a long history in Massachusetts, and as a global leader in life science, we are committed to strengthening our presence in one of the most important science and technology hubs in the world.”

The campus will serve as a premier global customer destination, housing both a customer service and call center and an M Lab™ Collaboration Center — a state-of-the-art, shared, exploratory environment where the company’s scientists and engineers work together with customers to help solve their toughest life science challenges. The M Lab™ Collaboration Center will be one of nine centers worldwide created specifically for collaboration, where hands-on training, customer experiments and application troubleshooting take place in a non-GMP environment. Other locations will include Brazil, China, France, India, Singapore and South Korea. This new enhanced M Lab™ center in Burlington, Massachusetts will replace the flagship M Lab™ at the company’s Billerica, Massachusetts facility.

“For nearly a decade, Merck has built a significant presence in Massachusetts and we are extremely pleased to support their expansion in Burlington through the MassWorks Infrastructure Program,” said Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker. “Building long-lasting public-private partnerships is vital to growing our economy, and the Merck campus represents significant investment and confidence in our shared future as a global life science center.”

Merck’s 850 full-time Billerica-based life science employees will relocate to the new campus when construction is complete in the second half of 2017.

The $115 million (€104 million) building will be LEED certified. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is the most widely used third-party verification for green construction, certifying buildings that promote sustainability, resource conservation and human health.

The five-story, single-tenant building near Route 3 and Route 128 in Burlington is being built by The Gutierrez Company. The project includes an opportunity to expand an additional 70,000 square feet. Merck leases the property.

Merck will maintain its other North American life science hub in St. Louis, Missouri.

Earthquake Tragedy Bridges Two Continents

leave a comment »

LAGOS, Nigeria /PRNewswire/ —

SOUTH AMERICA RECEIVES AID FROM CHARITY ORGANIZATION IN AFRICA

On April 16th 2016, the nation, Ecuador was hit by a colossal earthquake of magnitude 7.8. The severity of the disaster reverberated throughout the entire country, leaving at least 500 dead and 27,500 injured. Moved by the plight of Ecuadorians, T.B. Joshua – Founder of Emmanuel TV – sent a relief team to Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador and dispatched a Boeing 727 Cargo Plane, which contained 20 tons of relief hygiene materials, perishable, and non-perishable food stuff.

Upon arrival, the relief and aid supplies were received by representatives of the Minister of Defense on behalf of the people of Ecuador. The Armed Forces of Ecuador loaded the aid into army trucks and transported to the Emmanuel TV Operations Center, situated close to Esmeraldas City. The supplies were offloaded, repackaged, and distributed to various shelter camps in the Esmeraldas Province.

The Emmanuel TV Team also extended its relief efforts to a remote village, Chachi de San Salvador, which had also been gravely affected by the quake in the areas of access to clean water and the destruction of its local school. In response to this particular community’s needs, the Team supplied the community with equipment that converts river and unclean water into potable water. The Team is also undergoing a school construction project – at a cost of US$262,000 – to rebuild the entire school complex that was destroyed. The reconstructed school will provide learning facilities for 350 students.

The people of Ecuador, as well as its Government, continue to express their gratitude for the Emmanuel TV Ecuador Relief efforts. A grateful beneficiary, from the Chachi community, said: “This is the first aid we have received from another country”. The relief efforts have aided over 5,000 Ecuadorians, totaling over half a million US Dollars.

About Emmanuel TV

As Global Tablet Market Tumbles, PC Brands Develop Survival Tactics to Cope

leave a comment »

LONDON /PRNewswire/ — Downward trends in tablet shipments, with Apple and Samsung YoY shipments falling from 62% to 54% as the market shrinks, are forcing PC brands to strategize survival tactics for their product portfolios, finds ABI Research. While Amazon and Huawei will focus on tablets despite the dwindling figures, not all vendors share this mentality. Dell and HP, for instance, made the decision to shy away from the tablet market and will instead concentrate on providing 2-in-1 systems based on Windows.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20151014/276887LOGO

“Amazon and Huawei may successfully buck the trend, but each company is taking a drastically different stance on how to best accomplish this,” says David McQueen, Research Director at ABI Research. “Amazon managed to move away from raising revenue through hardware to recurring digital content sales, but Huawei, and even Lenovo for that matter, are instead looking to form a wider product suite that includes tablets in addition to their legacy PC and smartphone products.”

Xiaomi also plans to follow in Huawei and Lenovo’s footsteps, recently announcing a tie-up with Microsoft to ship Microsoft Office and Skype on Xiaomi’s Android smartphones and tablets. And ABI Research predicts Dell’s and HP’s strategies, though they differ from the former trend, will work since each company is targeting the enterprise upgrade market, an area in which Apple has yet to launch product. 2-in-1 devices are thought to provide a better productivity experience in enterprise, as they offer users the best of both the tablet and laptop worlds. Their full QWERTY hard keyboards, folding form factors, productivity apps, and larger screens fuel their demand in the workforce.

“As tablet hardware continues to decline, vendors that can control software, services, and the ecosystem will win out,” concludes McQueen. “There is still room in the mid-term for shipment growth in areas where the confluence of the tablet and laptop can be exploited to stimulate demand in the growing PC replacement market. Driving this movement will be enhancements in operating systems and improvements to enterprise productivity.”

These findings are from ABI Research’s Media Tablet Market Share Tracker (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/product/1023191-media-tablet-market-share-tracker/). This report is part of the company’s Wearables & Devices sector (https://www.abiresearch.com/market-research/practice/wearables-devices/), which includes research, data, and analyst insights.

Singer Songwriter Diane Arkenstone Returns With New Interactive Children’s App

leave a comment »

-“Interactive Fairy Tales” Available Now on iTunes & Apple TV
-New Single “Touch the Sky” Available Now
LOS ANGELES /PRNewswire/ — Acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter and overall creative Diane Arkenstone can now add App Creator to her long list of titles as she returns to the public eye with a multi-lingual creative app for children (and adults), “Interactive Fairy Tales,” as well as a new single, “Touch the Sky. Arkenstone has been inspired to create a wildly colorful app for children which incorporates a dynamic mix of interactive storytelling involving a mythical world filled with fantastical creatures and people populating a series of infectious limericks. The vibrant illustrations were created by Aluna Verse and the music, a quirky mix of world music and soothing orchestral/ambient vibes, was composed by Itom. While many will hear the limericks spoken in English, the app has also been adapted for use by native speakers of Mandarin (traditional and simplified versions), Japanese and Spanish. By tapping on one of several flags, a child can read and listen to each limerick spoken in any of the other languages. “Interactive Fairy Tales” was via the Apple App Store for iPhones, iPads and Apple TV July 8th. Download the app and click on a limerick and experience for free before purchasing for $2.99. “Interactive Fairy Tales” was released on July 8th.

You can watch an overview of the “Interactive Fairy Tales” app here:
EPK

Interactive Fairy Tales iTunes Preview:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fairy-tales/id1115988410

Developed in partnership alongside a long time Apple iOS developer with over 35 years of experience creating award winning kids apps, each limerick scene in “Interactive Fairy Tales” becomes an eye-popping, ear tingling, touch inviting universe all its own, with unique characters to engage and objects to explore. “Interactive Fairy Tales” is amongst one of the first children’s apps to be available on Apple TV offering up a free form navigable experience. Children can explore and experience a wide range of creative options—more so than is typical of some children’s apps.

Says Arkenstone: “One thing about the app is that it’s very free form. You can do what you want and have fun with it, tapping and exploring different objects for new surprises. There’s no rhyme or reason, you just keep digging around to discover all kinds of hidden treasures.”

In addition, Arkenstone is celebrating the release of her new song “Touch the Sky.” The single is the first from a forthcoming album of vocal tracks from the singer songwriter known for releasing a wide range of genre-defying releases on Neo Pacifica—a label she launched in the late 90’s. “Touch the Sky” was produced and recorded by Arkenstone with Dave Appelt. Arkenstone sings and plays metal drum, Appelt plays marimba and John Adorney accompanies on cello. “Touch the Sky” was released July 15th and is available via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Pandora.

The Huffington Post recently premiered the song—check it out here:
