BON Cloud’s China-Europe block train video stories help to connect Central-Southern Europe with China

bon_cloud-telefriuli_broadcast_facilities_europawire_sep_13_2016

BEIJING, 16-Sep-2016 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — The biggest story coming out of China today is the launching of the Silk Road on Rails: China-Europe block trains that carry goods across the globe. The proposal to establish China-Europe railroads surprised even the most experienced of rail industry players, yet thousands of trains now traverse these tracks annually.

Telefriuli SpA, the Italian broadcaster, exclusively aired the video series across Italy’s northeastern regions of Friuli Venezia and Eastern Veneto during the first week of September 2016. Telefriuli SpA was set up in 1974 in the North East of Italy. With more than 40 years of history it is also the region’s longest-running broadcast channel.

Today, as certified by Auditel, Telefriuli is by far the most-watched broadcaster in Friuli Venezia Giulia and in Eastern Veneto, and offers its viewers a rich schedule ranging from information to entertainment.

Of the videos. Telefruili Director, Daniele Paroni, said “I think it is crucial for Europe and for China to have a “physical” link which allows more and more narrow and intense social and economic relations between these two global players. In the videos there was a brilliant comparison between the silk road and the rail which links China and Europe.”

The China-Europe rail route is the longest in the world covering almost 10,000 kilometres in total.

Referring to BON Cloud, the producer and distributor of the China-Europe block train video series, Ms Paroni continued, “Telefriuli wants to retrace Marco Polo’s steps, showing to our audience the brilliant productions [BON Cloud is] sending us which also helps to connect Central-Southern Europe with China. Now that we have established this important relationship – BON Cloud and Telefriuli – we really want to continue this journey together, to enable us to achieve mutual satisfaction and knowledge.”

The first block train left Zhengzhou for Hamburg on July 18th, 2013, connecting people along the Silk Road and shortening the distance between continents. The 12-day, six-country journey posed challenges: would European companies welcome the new trade route? Would the cargo be secure? Would the project even be practical?

The trans-Eurasia rail trip began as a once-a-month event but China soon realized it required partners to make it successful. With partners on board, Hamburg became the forerunner. The German port city now serves as both a departure and destination point for the China-Europe block trains.

This project has lowered the cost of transportation significantly and commerce is thriving. There is no doubt about the initiative’s acceptance. The service currently transports goods several times a week from China, the Republic of Korea and Japan, as well as European countries such as Germany, Italy, Poland, France and Spain. With the growing success of the initiative, the development of additional European destinations is in the pipeline.

VIVIER MORTGAGES LIMITED “VML” AND LUIGI WEWEGE MEDIA STATEMENT

DUBLIN, IRELAND, February 24, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Over the past few months VML was contacted by Mr Conor Ryan and other reporters working on a programme for RTE, the Irish broadcaster.

It soon became clear that a number of untrue and defamatory allegations – about VML and persons formerly or currently connected with it – would be made in the programme and had already been made to third parties. After VML clearly outlined the correct position to RTE, its lawyers confirmed that the programme and/or its reporting would be “fair and balanced”, “fair, impartial and objective”, “fair to all interests concerned”, “fair and accurate”, “broadcast in good faith” and contain “nothing misleading, unsavoury or malicious” nor any “distortions or untruths”. VML was further assured by RTE’s lawyers that it “adheres to high standards of journalistic ethics” and follows “proper journalistic standards”.

Unfortunately, this did not happen: despite withdrawing many of the untrue and defamatory allegations, when broadcasting its programme on 5th February, RTE retained a number of others.

Accordingly, on 13th February 2015, following the advice of Senior and Junior Counsel, VML issued proceedings against RTE and Mr Ryan. The proceedings are for defamation, procuring a breach of confidence, malicious falsehood and other wrongs, for which aggravated and exemplary damages are sought. It is expected that other parties will issue similar proceedings in the English High Court.

The true position, as previously stated to but ignored by RTE, is as follows:
• In 2004, VML effectively came under the control of the British Government.
• In 2011, VML was sold by the British Government to an English private company.
• In 2014, VML was sold by that English company to its present owner.
• The beneficial owners of VML’s shares and debt are those appearing on the public register.
• VML’s current owner and directors are entirely distinct from the previous owners and directors.

Wired Magazine Announces Its Wired 100

Wired Magazine UK has published its inaugural who’s-who list of the key power brokers in the digital realm to celebrate its one-year anniversary. The new list covers who the people are who shape the world of technology? Which influencers can make or break a product launch or determine how people spend their leisure time?

The Wired list was compiled with the suggestions and insight of 120 anonymous experts across the digital spectrum, in order to arrive at this selection of the best of the best behind internet based companies, digital business strategies, communication, music and social networking.

Topping the list is Google UK CEO Matt Brittin, who led the British arm of the search behemoth through troubles such as monopoly allegations and the controversial launch of Google Buzz to company-wide profits of £15.9 billion. Other tech heavyweights in the fray of the top ten include Pascal Cagni, vice president of Apple EMEA, at number three; Ashley Highfield, managing director of Microsoft UK at number nine; and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek rounding out the top tier after revolutionising the way music is listened to online with the company’s ad-sponsored service.

A number of independent entries appear as well, with venture capitalists Saul Klein and Bernard Liautaud landing at numbers two and eight, with Klein propping up successful web ventures Skype and Lovefilm, and Liautaud netting £4.5 billion for the sale of his software company, Business Objects, in 2008. Partially due to his 1.2 million Twitter followers, actor and commentator Stephen Fry finishes at number seven on the list.

Newsmen James Murdoch and Erik Huggers go neck-and-neck at positions four and five, with Murdoch’s News Corporation challenging Huggers’ BBC site for market share in online news. Politicians also make a splash in the top rung, as the coordinator of the Conservative Party’s digital political machine Rishi Saha reaches number six.

However, the entire list of 100 is filled with movers and shakers in the digital realm. Notably making the number 20 spot is Alex Balfour, head of new media for the London 2012 Olympics. With preparations for the Summer 2012 games well underway, and construction on London’s Olympic Park in progress, Balfour, cofounder of cricinfo.com, has promised to deliver the most digitally-integrated Olympic games yet, harnessing mobile social engagement on a massive scale.

The Newsletter On Newsletters Awards Providence Publications Top Journalism Award For Second Consecutive Year

The Newsletter on Newsletters, a national publication founded in 1964, has announced its annual awards for journalistic acumen. Providence Publications, which includes the industry newsletter Workers’ Comp Executive (WCE), came away with 5 of the awards. The most prestigious of awards, the Award for Public Service, was awarded to Workers’ Comp Executive for its three years of extensive coverage regarding the State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF); notably in 2008 as the state agency was facing increased scrutiny from the public and legislature. The Newsletter on Newsletter concluded in its most recent edition, “the Award for Public Service goes to Workers’ Comp Executive, for its reporting of the issues and challenges as a bill opening the agency to the public neared legislative enactment in 2008.

In eight articles, beginning last April and running through September, WCE detailed SCIF’s attempts to gut the measure. By quoting industry executives and attorneys, WCE was able to show how those efforts would make the bill pretty meaningless.” Bess Shapiro is the capitol correspondent credited with coverage along with publisher of WCE, Dale Debber. This is the second year in a row Providence Publications has won the Top Journalism Award for Public Service, having saved insurance consumers last year nearly $6 hundred million.

Upon hearing the news, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger stated, “Good Journalism is essential for good government and I’m proud to have these California journalists recognized in the national community. We stand with all Californians in recognizing Providence Publications for its great journalism and many awards this year. Dale, Bess, and Brad are familiar faces around the Capitol and I join the whole Capitol community in recognizing not only the efforts of the whole Providence Publications team, but in thanking them for the kind of accurate and fair reporting they do. I am delighted that they brought so many prestigious awards back to California.”

Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner also comments on the awards. “Workers Comp Executive and its excellent team of writers and editors work tirelessly to pursue the latest developments in the workers’ compensation market,” said California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner. “Congratulations to Dale Debber, Brad Cain and Bess Shapiro for winning these awards and brining their readers their special brand of determined and detailed reporting.”

The award for Best Deadline Reporting also went to Workers’ Comp Executive for its story “SCIF Hides President’s Performance Bonus”. The Newsletter on Newsletters notes, “With California considering an open public records act, editor, Brad Cain and publisher Dale Debber began asking questions about the employment contract of Janet Frank, President, State Compensation Insurance Fund. State Fund refused to release details but Workers’ Comp Executive obtained them anyway. What made the contract particularly interesting was the fact that Frank was in California only four days a week, returning to her home in Denver, Colo., for the remaining three.” The story made public her pay, bonus arrangements and expenses.

Debber commented on the pattern of journalistic integrity utilized in this and all Providence Publications, “Workers’ Comp Executive is the journal of record for California workers’ comp professionals in all facets of the system. While we reflect the views of our audience, we never function as a mouthpiece and hold these same professionals accountable”.

Additionally Workers’ Comp Executive won the award from The Newsletter on Newsletters for Best Feature Article, “The Journalist in the Jury Pool”, by Capitol Correspondent Bess Shapiro. The Newsletter on Newsletters noted in the upcoming December 21st article that “Bess Shapiro’s adherence to professional journalistic ethics was enough to get her booted off a jury. The reason: She honestly told the court that while the Constitution assures a person has the right to remain silent, exercising that right would lead her to assume that the defendant had something to hide and probably was guilty”.

Another award, this one for Best Government Coverage went to Workers’ Comp Executive for its article “Governor Schwarzenegger Puts SCIF on the Block”. The coverage centered on Schwarzenegger’s plan to shore up $1 billion of the state budget deficit by selling the assets of State Fund, also known as SCIF. Publisher Dale Debber learned of the sale before it would be publicly announced, he pursued the issues and wrote a 2400 word piece that would later win the award.

Workers’ Comp Executive’s final award from The Newsletter on Newsletters was in the “Best Newswriting” category. Brad Cain followed the government meetings of the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California and learned that the bureau was recommending a 27% increase in workers’ compensation rates. The article, “27% Rate Hike Coming”, immediately sounded alarms in the insurance and business community. The Schwarzenegger administration took notice of the article and on the same day wrote a letter to the Insurance Commissioner urging a rejection to the bureau’s recommended increase. The Insurance Commissioner would reject the increase and as noted in The Newsletter on Newsletters, “Workers’ Comp Executive’s early reporting alerted the entire workers’ comp community including the commissioner and the governor that workers’ compensation rates were starting to creep up.”

First Ever Tool Bar for Writers

Canadian writer and web site manager Rowdy Rhodes of the Freelance Writing Organization – Int’l (FWO) (www.fwointl.com) has astounded the writing resource world by creating the first ever tool bar specifically for writers. Completely compatible with both IE7 and FF browsers, Instant Writing Resources (IWR) provides full access to the thousands of writing resources hosted by the FWO all with a single click of a button. The software is being released as freeware for any and all that might be interested in or currently making a living at writing.

Mr. Rhodes seized upon the opportunity when he came across an online community service system, Conduit, which provides the core engine for the tool bar and the ability to custom design a bar for the FWO. This is turn became the launch pad for IWR as it blasts off into cyberspace.

Brian Wilson, owner of the FWO, comments: “We live in an age when individuals are strapped for time due to work and family commitments, and this can often stifle creativity. Mr. Rhodes is a great example of adapting to this environment and providing a tool that will assist writers, journalists, authors, playwrights, and wordsmiths in general. He has not only been creative with accessing our system resources through the use of the IWR, he has also provided entertainment value by adding in online chat rooms, games, a radio station for writers, and a number of other fabulous options. I’m really very pleased to have Mr. Rhodes on our team, extremely impressed with the Instant Writing Resource Tool Bar and proud to be able to participate in its success.”

By thinking like a writer and combining his online experience, Mr. Rhodes divided the tool bar into the four most important areas that writers need instant access to:

1) How-to write resources (which the FWO has specialized in providing since 1999),

2) An employment search system linking a variety of providers together,

3) A library of Amazon books about learning how to write,

4) A socializing, entertainment area and even Writers Radio.

The tool bar took him 7 weeks to create.

Mr. Rhodes says: “Finding reliable writing resources is a difficult task these days. Everyone and his brother are touting they are writers or want to become writers. The jump in the need for how-to-write resources provides an opportunity for us to give back to the community something (the Instant Writing Resource Tool Bar) that is invaluable.”

The IWR is freeware without malware, spyware, or adware. It is simply what it claims to be; it’s a fast, reliable access tool to thousands of high quality writing resources. The tool bar can be found by going to their download page:

“The Writer Within You,” Will Help Grandma Or Grandpa Fulfill That Long-Cherished Dream Of Writing Their Own Book

An admittedly unscientific survey of 100 shoppers at each of two major shopping malls (Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ and International Mall in Tampa, FL) found that shoppers chose grandma and grandpa as the most difficult family members to choose a gift for.

Most indicated that these older folks had filled all of their physical needs over the course of their lifetimes and required little or no more as they grew older. For some respondents, a spinster aunt or an older bachelor uncle or brother posed an equally difficult gift choice.

Among the most popular gifts selected were an interesting book or a very personal memento like a photograph of grandkids or an evening out for dinner with members of the immediate family. The choice of a book was not surprising since several national polls have indicated that books are among the top five preferred gifts this year.

Combining that statistic with the finding by the Gallup Polling Organization that 81% of mature American adults actually dream of writing a book, The Writer Within You becomes a perfect gift for grandparents.

The book is subtitled A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing and Publishing in Your Retirement Years. This latest work by author Charles Jacobs has been selected as one of the Best Books of the Year by seven prestigious publishing groups, including ForeWord Magazine, USABookNews and Indie Awards. It is published by Caros Books of Woodcliff Lake, NJ.

Readers are shown how to write and move their thoughts into print, whether in a memoir for the family or a how-to book based on the knowledge they gained during their active work careers or the skills they attained as hobbyists. The book also covers the basics of writing and publishing a novel and several other genres. It has been hailed in numerous five-star reviews for both its clear instruction and the lengthy list of resources provided in the appendix to help novice writers.

The Writer Within You is available at all bookstores, including Amazon, B&N and Borders.com or on the web at www.retireandwrite.com.

More information and photos of the book cover and the author are available for the press on the Press Room page of Jacobs’ web site www.retirement-writing.com.

“Tantra for Erotic Empowerment” Wins A National Best Books 2008 Award

Tantra for Erotic Empowerment (Llewellyn Worldwide, ISBN: 073871197) by Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson has been named a National Best Books 2008 Award Winner in the Health: Sexuality category, and is an award-winning finalist in the Religion: Eastern Religions category. Last year Michaels and Johnson won the same honors for their first book, The Essence of Tantric Sexuality.

Tantra for Erotic Empowerment guides readers to sexual self-empowerment. Michaels and Johnson, who developed this book based on nine years of experience as Tantra teachers, share experiential methods for gaining self-knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of one’s own sexuality. In Tantra for Erotic Empowerment Michaels and Johnson take their readers on a Tantric journey of sexual self-discovery and show them how to experience pleasure with consciousness and intention and thereby enrich all aspects of their lives.

Featuring selections from Tantric literature for reflection, meditations, exercises, and practical techniques for exploring sexuality, plus a foreword from award-winning author, columnist, editor, and film director Tristan Taormino, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment is a practical handbook for anyone interested in exploring his or her own sexuality and having a more fulfilling life.
