OSOM Chief Legal Counsel Appointed to Blockchain for Europe Board

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brussels-based blockchain advocacy group, Blockchain for Europe (BC4EU), has nominated and appointed Jerome Dickinson, Chief Legal Counsel for crypto-centric wealth management firm OSOM.finance, to its board of directors.

Founded in late 2018, Blockchain for Europe advocates for balanced policy and regulatory governance for the blockchain sector in Europe. The group has been dedicated to working with its members to proactively educate European policymakers and regulators and help them develop a sensible regulatory framework to support and promote blockchain-based innovation.

Dickinson will join a diverse range of existing board members, including BC4EU’s Chair and Fetch.ai’s Director of Business Development, Maria Minaricova, Ava Lab’s General Counsel, Lee Schneider, Ripple’s Head of Public Policy, Susan Friedman, as well as Blockseed Ventures’ Managing Partner and Cardano’s Vice-Chairperson, Manmeet Singh.

“I’m honoured to have this opportunity to work with such high-calibre industry experts to help drive a flourishing crypto ecosystem in Europe. Blockchain for Europe is best placed to showcase the benefits blockchain can bring to the EU economy – such as job creation and a more competitive market for payments, banking, finance, and eCommerce services. I’m excited to be even more involved in this journey,” Dickinson said.

OSOM has been a member of the advocacy group since April 2021, responsible for leading the way in building cutting-edge solutions that comply with Estonia’s developing cryptocurrency regulations. This puts the fintech company in a strong position to propel Blockchain for Europe’s mission forward. Dickinson’s appointment will allow him to play a deeper role in driving responsible regulation and tokenisation innovation in Europe.

“We’re pleased to welcome Jerome to the Blockchain for Europe board. His experience places him in a favourable position to have constructive dialogues with policymakers, regulators, and other EU and national stakeholders about how best to govern and regulate blockchain in Europe while encouraging innovation. We look forward to the great contribution he’ll make in helping us fulfil our mission,” said Robert Kopitsch, BC4EU’s Secretary General.

Among OSOM’s leading innovations is the Crypto Autopilot, which provides a simple way for financial institutions and retail traders to gain exposure to a diversified pool of 60 pre-vetted crypto assets — all while negating concerns over custody, trading strategy and execution, and liquidity crunches. Autopilot outperformed its competitors throughout 2021, even besting the pioneer crypto asset, Bitcoin, by offering the best returns and rewards for risk-taking.

Experts to Share How to Manage and Develop Inherited Localization Tech Stacks

Welocalize logo no tagline

Industry thought leaders to present best practices for achieving a future-proofed technology platform ready to handle multiple languages and content types

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Building a localization tech stack from scratch is rare – unless you’re starting a new company. Chances are most localization and translation professionals have inherited someone else’s decisions and technology purchases. When building and developing an established tech stack, how can it be changed without breaking everything, as well as scale for future business requirements?’

Localization industry thought leaders Loy Searle, Senior Director of Localization and Global Content at Workday, and Darin Goble, VP of Solutions at Welocalize, will host a webinar, “Breaking the Concrete on Inherited Tech Stacks,” on July 27 at 12:00 PM EST to share how to achieve a scalable, future-proofed technology platform ready to handle multiple languages and content types.

During the one-hour webinar attendees will benefit from localization tech stack best practices and insights, including:
• How to approach an entrenched tech stack and instigate change.
• Knowing and understanding what you have inherited and why. Not every localization manager is a technology whizz or engineer.
• Developing a roadmap for your localization tech stack. Mapping the tech stack to meet future business needs and desired outcomes.
• Tackling change management and convincing people – understanding politics and managing multiple stakeholders.
• Future-proofing – anticipating the next best thing and making sure your tech stack can cope.

Interested attendees can register for “Breaking the Concrete on Inherited Tech Stacks” here.

About the Speakers
Darin Goble, Vice President, Solutions, Welocalize, has over 25 years’ experience producing global-ready localization solutions for leading global brands. He heads up Welocalize’s Solutions team and is responsible for deploying innovation and technology to Welocalize clients all over the world.

Investoo Group richt zich met een golf van nieuwe educatieve websites over de aandelenhandel op Belgische investeerders.

AandelenKopen.be

AandelenKopen.be

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Investoo Group heeft vandaag haar portfolio van beleggingsgerelateerde educatieve websites met 11 nieuwe namen uitgebreid, die de mensen in geheel Europa en Azië willen helpen hun eerste stappen in de ontmoedigende wereld van het beleggen in aandelen te zetten, waaronder AandelenKopen.be, een website die specifiek op Belgische handelaren gericht is.

De nieuwe websites zijn in het Engels, Nederlands, Noors, Portugees, Pools, Spaans, Duits, Italiaans, Deens, Indonesisch en Frans beschikbaar, en de Investoo Group belooft dat er later in de tweede helft van 2021 aanvullende taalversies uitgerold zullen worden.

David Merry, de CEO van de Investoo Group, zei: “We zijn verheugd om onze portfolio met deze nieuwe websites uit te breiden, die duidelijke en informatieve content voor beginnende beleggers bieden. De markt heeft een tekort aan jargon vrij educatief materiaal om mensen zo te helpen de eerste juiste stappen te zetten; we geloven dat deze websites die ruimte opvullen en zijn verheugd om ze in de loop van de tijd te zien groeien en uitbreiden”

Voorbeelden van handelsplatformen op te nemen die in het gebied van de lezer beschikbaar zijn. Geo-specifieke informatie, zoals de minimale stortingen op het handelsplatform, wordt eveneens in de lokale valuta voor elke regio weergegeven. AandelenKopen.be bijvoorbeeld, dat zich op gebruikers in Nederland richt, toont dan alle voorbeelden van de handelsbedragen en minimale stortingen in EUR, terwijl de Deense versie de voorbeelden in DKK toont, waardoor het gemakkelijker en eenvoudiger te begrijpen is.

De CEO David Merry voegde toe: “Het kan al een hele uitdaging zijn om met beleggen te beginnen en we zijn van mening dat door deze educatieve gidsen niet alleen in de taal van de lezer te verstrekken, maar ook gelokaliseerd voor de plaats waar zij deze lezen, de mensen zich meer op hun gemak zullen voelen, om zo vol vertrouwen hun eerste stappen te zetten. Dit is sinds de oprichting altijd één van de kerndoelen van de Investoo Group geweest.”

Executives and engineers were asked questions pertaining to working remotely, security protocols during the pandemic, development and testing trends that they invested in, trends they moved away from and overall management challenges.

Some notable findings from the industry report include:
– 70% of executives plan on hiring at least 10 engineers over the next 12 months
– Executives spent the most money on Remote Teams, Security Risk & Compliance, and Machine Learning & AI in 2020

New “Safer Environments” Rental Program Makes High-End UV-C Disinfection Accessible to All Facilities

Program Offers Financial and Environmental Benefits

SOUTH HILL, VA, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Advanced Ultraviolet Systems (AUVS), one of the nation’s leading providers of UV-C-based disinfection products used in healthcare, has introduced the “Safer Environments” Rental Program. The program makes the company’s line of disinfection systems accessible to medical and non-medical facilities of all sizes, with rental options starting as low as $109 per month.

AUVS’ products are used throughout more than 700 Hospitals and Hospital Groups and have a proven disinfection rate of up to 99.999% against infectious contaminants including C.diff, MRSA, and Norovirus, as well as COVID 19 and the new Delta variant. The product line is anchored by two germicidal enclosures, The UV Box and The UV Cube, used to disinfect handheld devices and larger items. The enclosures are based on technology—patented by company Chief Technology Officer Dr. Wayne Clark—currently used to protect the US Pentagon from anthrax attacks and similar bio-terrorism threats. Rounding out the product line are Rollie, a compact UV-C robot to disinfect larger surfaces in rooms, and Ray EMS, a mobile UV-C system targeting ambulance interiors. Previously the company’s products were only available for purchase.

AUVS principle and CEO, Jim Psihas explains the rental program is consistent with the company’s founding principles to bring infection prevention solutions to as many organizations as possible.

“Having spent several decades in healthcare, I was well aware of how patients suffer, and the challenges hospitals face treating infections, protecting staff and safeguarding their families,” Psihas said. “If we could help people on both the provider and patient side, we’d be doing something truly worthwhile. To have the greatest impact our systems need to reach as many people as possible. The ‘Safer Environments’ Rental Program makes that possible.”

Financial and Environmental Benefits
Working with financial partner, Avalon Leasing, AUVS has developed a program that not only puts UV-C systems in place but can reduce a facility’s expenses.

“Our UV-C products make it possible for organizations to significantly reduce their use of germicidal wipes to disinfect handheld devices. The savings realized by reducing wipe usage are actually greater than the cost of the rental units and can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month, depending on the size of the organization.”

“Using very conservative formulas we can demonstrate the savings and ROI possible by simply reducing the wipes used to clean cell phones. When factoring in additional savings for disinfecting other handheld items and shared devices, including tablets and keyboards, the savings really become dramatic,” he added.

The reduction in wipes usage also has a significant environmental impact, eliminating tons of waste annually that would otherwise be headed to local landfills, according to the company.

About AUVS
AUVS is an American company with manufacturing facilities in Atlanta and Nashville. Today, in addition to the more than 700 US Hospitals and Hospital Groups, AUVS products are used in hundreds of physician and dental offices, law enforcement and EMS environments, educational institutions, food processing sites, general industry and offices.

Lumen and Forge Created Family-Friendly Immersive Wonderland for Wild Child

An industry leader in immersive venues and augmented experiences has created a unique experience that’s hard to find anywhere.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Representatives with Lumen and Forge announced today that it created a family-friendly immersive wonderland for Wild Child’s Lumens Gallery in the Bay Area, California.

“The interactive museum and play space featured games and activities complemented by motion-activated visuals and entrancing soundscapes,” a company spokesperson for Lumen and Forge said.

The company spokesperson explained that The Wild Child Museum was a pop-up children’s museum in the Bay Area created by educators, renowned artists, and early childhood development experts.

“Our team at Lumen and Forge programmed and installed the experiential Lumens Gallery, which ran for four months,” the spokesperson revealed, before adding, “The marvelous gallery consisted of several projection-mapped rooms with stunning 360 visuals and interactive elements.”

Lumen and Forge’s team created five different scenes of interactive content.

“We installed four projectors and three advanced motion-sensing cameras to create fun, reactive visuals that brought the room to life,” the spokesperson said. “Then, connected everything wirelessly to a tablet so the room could be transformed at the touch of a button and intuitive interface. We were tasked with the exciting project of creating 3D interactive content for the gallery. We used the powerful program Touch Designer software along with Cinema 4D to create an assortment of surreal interactive projections that were easily adjusted through our easy-to-use tablet interface.”

But that’s not all. Lumen and Forge recently created a 360 projection dome for Capital One. The company teamed up with Publicis Hawkeye, 360 Labs, and Pacific Domes to create a 360 projection solution for Capital One. The Capital One Venture Dome was an experiential immersion space exhibited at four locations in Denver, Colorado. Over the course of six months, we set up projectors, lighting, and sound for the exciting, multi-day feature.

The company spokesperson explained that the Capital One Venture made use of experiential marketing to encourage travel with and immersive views of local and exotic scenery. Visuals featured cascading mountains and snowcapped forests, as well as exotic scuba diving adventured and more.

In addition, Lumen and Forge also recently created the world’s largest projection dome. ‘The Dome, Miami,’ at 225 by 175 feet, was the world’s largest projection dome. Located in the heart of downtown Miami during last year’s Superbowl, thousands of guests visited our immersive, pop-up nightclub.

“Our team handled everything from managing dome construction to creating custom bespoke 360 content,” the spokesperson said. “For four nights, we had an absolute blast video mapping over 40,000 square feet of screen space. The show itself featured performances from world-renowned rappers such as Future, Cardi B, and Gucci Mane. Thanks to AG Entertainment Inc. for hiring us.”

The company, which also provides full-spectrum projection solutions, offers a range of Geodesic Projection Domes and Inflatable Projection Domes in a multitude of sizes ranging from 10 to 300 feet in diameter.

Lumen and Forge services (https://lumenandforge.com/services/) can be customized to cater to any project – big or small. Its immersive services make use of its multiplicity of 360 domes, media servers, custom interfaces, projection rigs, screens, cameras, and more so that the company can provide fully integrated options.

“Here at Lumen and Forge, we cover almost everything to do with immersive venues and augmented experiences,” the spokesperson stressed before adding, “Although we are flexible, our specialty is 360 dome projection, which is at the forefront of the advent of VR/AR. Our cornucopia of domes features ultra-high-resolution spherical screens, live-playback systems, and portable and accessible components.”

Lumen and Forge’s goal is to inspire audiences and bring 360 theater into the future.

“This is an extremely exciting opportunity that I’m thrilled to be offering in cooperation with Concierge Auctions,” stated Taugwalder. “These two units are impeccable—truly the best of the best in the heart of Bangkok in one of the finest buildings in all of Asia, coming fully furnished and move-in ready.”

Nestled in the heart of Bangkok’s Central Business District, Unit #40 ND2H is an opulent two-story corner residence and an ideal oasis within bustling Bangkok. The building spirals up within the Bangkok skyline, iconic and inviting from first look. Take the high-speed elevator to the 40th floor and step into your spacious foyer with an expertly appointed kitchen beyond. The space opens to an inviting and expansive area perfect for entertaining, with a double-story wall of windows and the beautiful city stretching beyond them. The library, game rooms, fitness center, and theatre will keep guests of any age well entertained.

Retire for the evening to your spacious master suite, with its 24-square meter bedroom providing ample space to relax.

Chateau de Falloux | Loire Valley, France
Bid Now Through 22 July

A true gem of neo-Gothic architecture glitters from the heart of the Loire Valley will auction this month via Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Tony Wells of French Domaines. Previously listed for €3.8M, the property will sell with No Reserve to the highest bidder.

“I’m once again thrilled to be partnering with Concierge Auctions on one of the most spectacular properties offered in France,” stated Wells. “I’m well-versed in working with the firm, and I expect to accrue a large amount of interest once we pair our database with their global reach, and anticipate an exciting auction next month.”

The history of Chateau de Falloux can be traced back to the 18th century with extensive enhancements in the 19th century. Its recent renovation, which was completed in 2018, has breathed new life and modernity into each of its rooms, from herringbone parquet floors to soaring cathedral ceilings. Not an ounce of authenticity was sacrificed during its careful restoration. Updated luxuries, like the custom kitchen with Carrara marble surfaces and built-in appliances, bring perfect balance to the sweeping antique staircases and ornate carved fireplaces. Sumptuous chandeliers and immaculate oak paneling throughout provide a warm and cohesive design that calls you to linger in each new room. Bright, airy, and irresistibly inviting, Chateau de Falloux is as charming as the Verzee valley it overlooks.

Investoo Group retter seg mot norske investorer med en rekke nye nettsider med læremateriell for aksjehandel

KjopeAksjer.no

KjopeAksjer.no

Investoo Group har i dag utvidet sin portefølje bestående av læringsplattformer, og inkluderer 11 nye plattformer.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Investoo Group har i dag utvidet sin portefølje bestående av læringsplattformer, og inkluderer 11 nye plattformer som jobber for å hjelpe folk i Europa og Asia med å ta sine første steg inn i den tidvis skremmende aksjeinvesteringsverdenen, inkludert KjopeAksjer.no, en nettside som er spesielt rettet mot norske investorer.

De nye nettsidene er tilgjengelig på engelsk, nederlandsk, portugisisk, polsk, spansk, tysk, italiensk, dansk, indonesisk og fransk, og Investoo Group lover at de vil bli lansert på flere språk senere i den andre halvdelen av 2021.

David Merry, adm.dir. i Investoo Group, sa følgende: “Vi er svært glade for å kunne utvide porteføljen vår og inkludere disse nye nettsidene, slik at vi kan tilby tydelig og informativt innhold for de som er nye innen investering. Markedet har lenge hatt mangel på enkelt, lærerikt innhold uten komplisert sjargong som kan hjelpe folk med å ta de første, riktige stegene, og vi har troen på at disse nettsidene kommer til å fylle dette tomrommet. Vi gleder oss til å se hvordan de utvikler seg over tid”.

I tillegg til at nettsidene blir lokalisert til hvert enkelt språk blir de også tilpasset sine respektive regioner, med guider som kun inneholder eksempler fra handelsplattformer som faktisk er tilgjengelig der leseren befinner seg. Stedsspesifikk informasjon, som plattformenes minimumsinnskudd, vises også i regionens lokale valuta. For eksempel vil KjopeAksjer.no, som retter seg mot brukere i Norge, vise eksempler i NOK, mens den franske siden vil vise beløpene i EUR, slik at det blir enklere å forstå.

Adm.dir. David Merry la også til: “Det å komme i gang med investering kan virke overveldende nok, og vi føler at ved å tilby disse lærerike guidene ikke bare på leserens eget språk, men også lokalisert til regionen de befinner seg i, kan vi bidra til at folk føler seg mer komfortable og trygge i det de tar sine første steg. Dette har vært ett av Investoo Groups viktigste fokusområder siden oppstarten”.
