‫إطلاق فيلم “منارة” في مهرجان البندقية السينمائي الدولي السنوي في نسخته السادسة والسبعين

تمّ عرض فيلم الدراما اللبناني القصير في الرابع من أيلول/سبتمبر 2019 في GiornateDegliAutori (أيّام البندقية) خلال حدث خاصّ في Villa DegliAutori في ليدو، البندقية.

البندقية، إيطاليا،  أيلول/سبتمبر 2019 – رأى “منارة”(Manara)، وهو فيلم قصير للمخرج اللبناني زين ألكسندر، النور في “أيّام البندقية” 2019 في مهرجان البندقية السينمائي الدولي السادس والسبعين. ولقد عرض فيلم الدراما القصير في 4 أيلول/سبتمبر 2019 خلال حدث خاصّ في Villa degliAutori في ليدو، البندقية. 

وقد صرّح ألكسندر قائلاً: “انطلقت فكرة “منارة” من انزعاج وارتياع على مستوى شخصي من ثقافة مهووسة بالمظاهر. فإنّ جيل آبائنا مستعدّ لأن يجازف بسلامته الخاصّة وسلامة أولاده في سبيل الحفاظ على صورة لا يشوبها عيب في عيون المجتمع المحيط بهم، وعائلتهم، والبلد كلّه بشكل عامّ. من هذا المنطلق، قرّرت أن أخبر قصّةً عن عائلة ثريّة في جنوب لبنان المحافظ تعرّضت لـ”فضيحة”  معيّنة من شأنها أن تلطّخ سمعتهم لما تبقّى من حياتهم إذا انكشفت”. 

وكان فيلم “منارة” قد فاز بالنسخة الأولى من مسابقة Vitesul’acqua ضمن مهرجان Laguna Sud السينمائي الذي ينظّمه أندريا سيغري في كيوجيا، البندقية. 

زين ألكسندر هو ممثّل ومخرج من أصل لبناني متمركز في نيويورك. وهو بدأ مسيرته المهنية عندما انتقل إلى مدينة نيويورك في العام 2010. وقد ظهر للمرّة الأولى في العام 2012 في فيلم درامي بعنوان The Defector (الهارب). أمّا في العام 2017، فقد أخرج ألكسندر ومثّل في الدراما القصيرة Abroad (الغربة) التي نالت إعجاب الكثيرين. وتمّ عرض Abroad للمرّة الأولى عالمياً في مهرجان سانتا باربرا السينمائي الدولي الذي يؤهّل لجوائز الأوسكار. وفي تشرين الأوّل/أكتوبر من العام 2018، أخرج ألكسندر ومثّل في فيلم “منارة”. وبالإضافة إلى مسيرته السينمائية، هو يحمل شهادة ماجستير في علم النفس من جامعة Columbia. 

لمحة عن الفيلم: تعيش عائلة آل زيّاد في بلدة ساحلية في جنوب لبنان، وكان يبدو أنّه لا ينقصها شيء. تملك فندقاً على البحر وتتمتّع بزواج طويل الأمد وعلاقات عائلية متينة. غير أنّ هذه الصورة التي يظهر أنّها مثالية تبدأ بالتشقّق بعد أن يتوفّى الأب تحت ظروف غامضة. إلّا أنّ زوجة الفقيد عليا عازمة على الكذب بشأن سبب وفاة زوجها بهدف الحفاظ على المظاهر بالرغم من شدّة اعتراضات ولديها الراشدين رامي ونورا. وقبل ساعة من وصول المعزّين، وفي ظلّ عدم الاتّفاق على خطّة عمل واحدة، يجد عليا، ونورا، ورامي أنفسهم مرغمين على إعادة النظر في الاختلال العائلي المتجذّر الذي أودى بهم أساساً إلى هذا الوضع. 

بطولة: هلا بسمة صفي الدين، زين ألكسندر، باسكال سينيوري

Xinhua Silk Road: Enterprise Endogenous Growth Summit kicks off in SW China’s Chengdu

CHENGDU, China, Sept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Enterprise Endogenous Growth Summit kicked off Wednesday in Chengdu, Southwest China’s Sichuan province.

At the summit, representatives from government departments, state-owned enterprises, financial institutions and universities shared their opinions on ways of transformation and upgrading, so as to help more enterprises to achieve high-quality development.

The Enterprise Endogenous Growth Summit kicked off Wednesday in Chengdu, China

“Exploration and imagination are the keys to innovation,” said Paul M. Romer, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2018, adding that corporate innovation should create a culture that encourages exploration of the unknown and fosters imagination.

According to Romer, the innovation in business model is the key for a company, which is inseparable from scientific planning and coordination. The best planning should be general and simple, instead of being too detailed. At the same time, it is necessary to balance the interests of shareholders and create value for society, especially in areas such as climate change and environmental protection.

As of the end of June, 2019, the total assets of state-owned enterprises in Sichuan province exceeded 10 trillion yuan, ranking sixth among other provinces and regions in the country. At the same time, the province has basically formed five pillar industries, namely electronic information, equipment manufacturing, food and beverage, advanced materials, as well as energy and chemical industry.

“Currently, insufficient R&D investment, scarce innovation platform, weak innovation ability, few transformation outcomes, and weak industry drive are still prominent shortcomings of state-owned enterprises in Sichuan,” said Xu Jin, director of the Provincial State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) in Sichuan. To solve these problems, Xu suggested state-owned enterprises to implement innovation-driven development strategy and enhance innovation in industry, management and mechanism.

The summit was under the guidance of the SASAC of the Sichuan Provincial Government, sponsored by Sichuan Development Holding Co., Ltd., and supported by CHANGHONG Electric Co., Ltd. Provincial state-owned enterprises, leading national enterprises such as Wuliangye, Huawei, Alibaba and Sinomach, and world’s top 500 enterprises which have branches in Sichuan, all sent representatives to attend the summit.

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Sept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Johnson & Johnson today announced the winners of the Champions of Science Africa Innovation Challenge 2.0 at the 28th World Economic Forum on Africa (WEF) in Cape Town, South Africa. The six winning businesses and programs offer bold, entrepreneurial approaches to tackling major healthcare priorities in African communities, including Blood Delivery, Healthcare Worker Burnout, Hearing Loss, Jaundice, Malaria and Ultrasound Access.

A total amount of US $300,000 will be awarded to the winning teams, along with extensive mentoring and connection network building, to support the expansion and sustainability of the companies and programs. The Challenge reflects Johnson & Johnson’s legacy of supporting entrepreneurs around the world to uncover, develop and promote solutions that improve health and wellbeing in their communities and beyond.

“The innovation ecosystem in Africa is thriving, and the ideas and energy of its entrepreneurs and innovators have the potential to create transformational change for people across the continent and around the world,” said Paul Stoffels, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer and Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee, Johnson & Johnson. “The six winners of the Africa Innovation Challenge 2.0 are addressing major healthcare challenges with novel technology and approaches. We look forward to collaborating with and investing in them as they work to create sustainable businesses and programs that offer strong benefits to patients, families, healthcare workers and communities in markets across Africa and beyond.”

The Challenge received nearly 900 submissions from 39 countries, and the winning businesses and programs represent outstanding ingenuity and perseverance, as well as a pathway for scaling operations for long-term sustainability. The winners will be recognized today at a press conference at WEF from 1:45 – 2:15 PM SAST, along with prominent African government leaders.

“The World Economic Forum is excited to partner in announcing the winners of the Africa Innovation Challenge 2.0 at this year’s congress, which is focused on Innovation, Cooperation, Growth and Stability, critical areas that the challenge embodies,” said Elsie Kanza, Head of Africa at the World Economic Forum. “Each of the six winners brings a passion for innovation, a bold sense of purpose and a commitment to the future of their communities and the larger continent. By participation in our meeting, we hope that they will be able to gain knowledge, ideas and connections to help them take their business to the next level as well as inspire leaders to encourage and support future generations of innovators.”

“The winners of the first Africa Innovation Challenge have made significant advancements with their businesses, including hiring more workers, accelerating production and securing important patents and trademarks – all part of the ambitions and goals of the Challenge,” said Seema Kumar, Vice President, Innovation, Global Public Health and Science Policy Communication, Johnson & Johnson. “The new winners are equally impressive and talented, and we are confident that by linking the energy and ingenuity of these winners with the resources available through the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, that they will also make a real and lasting impact in communities across Africa.”

CHAMPIONS OF SCIENCE AFRICA INNOVATION CHALLENGE 2.0 AWARDEES

The Challenge winners were selected from a large and impressive pool of applications reviewed by a Johnson & Johnson cross-sector team representing our Consumer, Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical, Global Public Health, Corporate Equity and Johnson & Johnson Innovation businesses and groups. The winning teams each target a significant unmet need:

BLOOD DELIVERY

  • LIFEBANK (Nigeria) – The lack of an established blood supply network in Nigeria can make access to appropriate blood transfusion very difficult and is contributing to loss of lifei. LifeBank is working to change this dynamic. The company receives requests through a digital platform with the intent of delivering the necessary blood to hospitals in less than 45 minutes in a WHO Blood Transfusion Safety compliant cold chain.

HEALTHCARE WORKER BURNOUT

  • THE HOPE INITIATIVE (Rwanda) – More than 50 percent of emergency care workers are at high risk for burnout given the nature of their jobsii. The Hope Initiative builds upon research that has demonstrated the positive influence of intrinsic hope on health outcomes of healthcare workers and their patients. Using a validated metric, The Hope Initiative intends to measure hope among nurses and mothers to understand how hope intersects with healthcare worker burnout and perinatal health outcomes. The Initiative intends to identify interventions that positively influence hope and build both a sustainable team of healthcare workers and sustainable improvements in patient outcomes.

HEARING LOSS

  • DREET (Botswana) – More than 460 million people around the world are hearing-impairediii, and two-thirds of them live in developing countriesiv. Hearing loss can lead to unnecessary poverty and hardship in affected families and communities. DREET is a mobile phone app that allows a child in rural Africa to have their hearing tested in real time by a professional who may live thousands of miles away. Their phone-based hearing device tests the hearing in children as young as three years old, allowing parents to prepare and understand impacts of raising a hearing-impaired child, or counteracting potential developmental issues such as speech impediments due to hearing impairment.

JAUNDICE

  • CRIB A’GLOW (Nigeria) – An estimated six million babies do not receive treatment for neonatal jaundice because they lack access to effective phototherapy devicesv. If untreated, severe jaundice can cause hearing loss, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, kernicterus and even death. Crib A’glow is a solar-powered, foldable phototherapy crib provided to hospitals, health centers and parents, even in communities where access to quality healthcare and stable electricity is poor. Crib A’glow allows jaundiced babies to receive important phototherapy to help them regain health.

MALARIA

  • UGANICS (Uganda) – Uganda has one of the highest malaria transmission rates in the worldvi, and malaria is also one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Uganda, especially among children under five years oldvii. Commercial mosquito repellent sprays or gels are often not available in rural shops nor are they affordable for many low-income parents. Uganics manufactures an organic, affordable soap that repels mosquitos with intent to help prevent the spread of malaria. Uganics’ soap can be utilized in a variety of ways, such as bathing, washing hands and washing clothes.

ULTRASOUND

  • MSCAN (Uganda) – The WHO recommends at least one ultrasound scan before 24 weeks’ gestation and eight total prenatal visits for expecting mothersviii. Rural communities often lack access to ultrasound machines, requiring expecting mothers to spend valuable time, energy and resources on transportation to far away clinics in order to access ultrasound services. mSCAN’s device performs ultrasounds through the use of a portable probe and a tablet, laptop, or smartphone, allowing trained healthcare workers and midwives to be prepared for potential risk-factors during delivery.

Johnson & Johnson cross-sector teams will now begin working with each business and program and will report their progress at the Next Einstein Forum’s global gathering event in 2020. The Next Einstein Forum is a platform that connects science, society and policy in Africa and the rest of the world.
