–       «Heal the World With Love and Music», una actuación mundial de captación de fondos para la investigación médica del COVID-19, anuncia su debut el 21 de septiembre de 2021

Debutando en Verona, Italia; Pekín, China y la ciudad de Nueva York, el prestigioso productor ejecutivo Tony Renis, junto a los productores Gianmarco Mazzi, Julius Nasso, Frankie Nasso, Boban Zlatkovic y Gianluca Curti, se asocian con Charity Brands para llevar a cabo el lanzamiento internacional del show de captación de fondos con los principales nombres del entretenimiento

NUEVA YORK, 19 de mayo de 2020 /PRNewswire/ — «Heal the World With Love and Music« se va a convertir en un show global de consecución de fondos para la investigación médica que lucha contra el nuevo coronavirus, que debutará en tres ciudades internacionales, incluyendo Verona, Italia; Pekín, China y la ciudad de Nueva York el martes 21 de septiembre de 2021. Mostrando su apreciación por los esfuerzos incansables llevados a cabo por los trabajadores médicos y los primeros encuestados en todo el mundo y que siguen poniendo sus vidas en la primera línea, «Heal the World With Love and Music» mostrará a los principales nombres del entretenimiento de todo el mundo.

«Colaborando con el productor ejecutivo, Tony Renis, Gianmarco Mazzi, Boban Zlatkovic, Gianluca Curti y nuestro destacado equipo de producción, nuestro objetivo dentro de ‘Heal the World With Love and Music’ es aumentar la concienciación para conseguir fondos vitals de cara a la investigación médica para el COVID-19, comenzando a establecer las bases para la recuperación después del virus», afirmó Julius Nasso, prestigioso productor de cine y residente en la ciudad de Nueva York, quien recientemente ha producido y co-dirigido el destacado concierto «Asian Culture Carnival» en Pekín celebrado en el Bird’s Nest Stadium el 15 de mayo de 2019 y en el que se llevó a cabo la actuación mundial más importante realizada por Andrea Bocelli, con 1,7 millones de espectadores y frente a una audiencia en directo de 78.000 personas. Tras este éxito conseguido en el show, se encargó a Nasso la producción de una actuación en Pekín para conmemorar el 600 aniversario de la Forbidden City, contando con la participación de la soprano china Lei Jia y otros artistas destacados de todo el mundo. Hay que destacar que debido al COVID-19, este show se ha postpuesto hasta nuevo aviso.

Julius Nasso añadió: «Para ‘Heal the World With Love and Music’, nos ha emocionado asociarnos con Charity Brands Inc., firma con sede en Nueva York propiedad de Stephen Adler, una firma de patrocinio mundial que ha conseguido más de 12.000 millones de dólares para asociaciones entre organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro y corporaciones para lanzar este evento internacional, y que acaba de anunciar el Community Inclusion Fund para llevar a cabo la consecución de 500 millones de dólares para el alivio y recuperación de las comunidades impactadas por el COVID-19″.

Como Global Sponsorship and Charity Fundraiser para «Heal the World With Love and Music«, la misión de Charity Brands Consulting se basa en permitir a las organizaciones sin ánimo de lucro y corporaciones aumentar el alcance y los ingresos, trabajando juntos para inspirar a los consumidores e impactar en nuestra sociedad. Charity Brands desarrolló anteriormente la Pharmaceutical Roundtable for American Heart Association, y la asociación, que cuenta con 12 compañías farmacéuticas, redujo la enfermedad cardiaca y los derrames en un 25%, consiguiendo más de 1.000 millones de dólares; desarrollando la Heart Check for American Heart Association, que aparece en más de 60.000 millones de productos; siendo la agencia que creó Walk America y la campaña para Healthier Babies for The March of Dimes, que ha conseguido más de varios centenares de millones de dólares; actuando como agencia de registro del receptor del Global Fund de fondos RED fundados de forma conjunta por el cantante de U2 y activista, Bono; actuando como agente de licencia para el programa de coleccionables de la FIFA World Cup; además de actuar como agente de licencia para ABC en los Juegos Olímpicos.

«El concepto brillante de Julius Nasso será una prolongación de donde se quedó Live Aid. Hemos planeado llevar a los mejores socios empresariales en cada uno de los países de hospedaje como patrocinadores y para conseguir dinero de forma similar al modelo de los Juegos Olímpicos, la Copa del Mundo y otros eventos mundiales destacados», explicó Stephen Adler, consejero delegado de Charity Brands.

«Heal the World With Love and Music es una oportunidad única para propagar el amor y la esperanza de forma más rápida que cualquier virus, ayudando a las organizaciones caritativas en las comunidades locales afectadas por el COVID-19. Desde una perspectiva de estrategia, el momento es brillante, y Nasso lo ha conseguido, por lo que las comunidades están retrayéndose de la pena y el dolor, y necesitamos construir esperanza al tiempo que haya una voz en una plataforma mundial que creará Heal the World», destacó Brian Grace, responsable de estrategia de Charity Brands.

«Este evento se supone que actuará como baliza para la buena voluntad de todos. Se trata de un símbolo de un planeta que se une en su lucha contra un enemigo formidable que no nos podemos permitir subestimar de nuevo», indicó Boban Zlatkovic, productor de Heal the World With Love and Music.

Más adelante se darán a conocer los detalles adicionales de cada uno de los shows de la ciudad, incluyendo los lugares de localización, actuaciones, programación, organizaciones caritativas y mucho más.

Surge in demand for advanced feature and rise in need for safety in automobiles drive the growth of the global auto dimming market

PORTLAND, Oregon, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Allied Market Research published a report, titled, «Auto Dimming Mirror Market by Application (Inside Rear-View Mirror and Outside Rear-View Mirror), Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicle and Commercial Vehicle), and Fuel Type (ICE, Hybrid, and Electric): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019–2026.» According to the report, the global auto dimming mirror industry was estimated at $1.86 billion in 2018 and is expected to hit $2.77 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2019 to 2026.

Drivers, restraints & opportunities-

Rise in demand for advanced feature and increase in need for safety in automobiles fuel the growth of the global auto dimming mirror market. On the other hand, high cost compared to conventional mirrors curbs the growth to certain extent. However, production of cloud based auto dimming mirrors is expected to create multiple opportunities in the near future.

Request Sample Report at: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/5621 

The inside rear-view mirror segment to retain its dominance during the study period-

Based on application, the inside rear-view mirror segment contributed to more than half of the global auto dimming mirror market revenue in 2018, and is expected to rule the roost by 2026. The fact that inside rear-view mirror offers various features such as microphones, lighting assist, home link, driver assist, forward safety camera systems, compass, and others boosts the growth of the market. The outside rear-view mirror segment, on the other hand, would grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.1% throughout the forecast period. These mirrors are powered by interior electrochromic rear-view mirrors and also include additional features such as side blind zone indicators, turn signal indicators, and courtesy lighting. This factor has empowered the segment growth.

The passenger vehicle segment to lead the trail by 2026-

Based on vehicle type, the passenger vehicle segment garnered the major share in 2018, holding nearly two-thirds of the global auto dimming mirror market. This is due to the fact that leading automotive manufacturers are providing auto dimming mirrors in their cars to increase safety of passengers and drivers. The commercial vehicle segment, on the other hand, would showcase the fastest CAGR of 5.8% during the estimated period, owing to increasing trading activities.

Asia-Pacific to remain lucrative in terms of revenue-

Based on geography, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for more than two-fifths of the global auto dimming mirror market share in 2018, and is projected to dominate during 2019–2026. The same province would also cite the fastest CAGR of 6.5% by the end of 2026. This is because the automobile industry giants in the region are introducing new range of vehicles with the feature of auto-dimming rear-view mirrors.

Los niños no son inmunes al coronavirus; Un nuevo estudio del epicentro de la pandemia describe reacciones graves de niños con COVID-19

NUEVA YORK, 19 de mayo de 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Aunque la mayoría de niños infectados con el nuevo coronavirus tienen síntomas leves, hay una minoría que requiere hospitalización y un grupo aún más reducido que debe ser ingresado en cuidados intensivos.

NUEVA YORK, 19 de mayo de 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Aunque la mayoría de niños infectados con el nuevo coronavirus tienen síntomas leves, hay una minoría que requiere hospitalización y un grupo aún más reducido que debe ser ingresado en cuidados intensivos. Un nuevo informe elaborado por anestesistas pediátricos, especialistas en enfermedades infecciosas y pediatras del Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) y del Albert Einstein College of Medicine describe las características y resultados clínicos de niños hospitalizados con COVID-19 durante los primeros días de la pandemia.

Montefiore

El informe, publicado en Journal of Pediatrics, compara datos de 46 pacientes entre un mes y 21 años de edad que recibieron atención médica en una unidad general o en la Unidad de Cuidados Críticos Pediátricos (UCCP) de CHAM. Se trata del estudio en un solo centro más amplio realizado hasta la fecha en Estados Unidos en describir en detalle el espectro completo del COVID-19 en niños hospitalizados.

Los investigadores determinaron que los niños que requirieron cuidados intensivos tuvieron niveles más altos de inflamación y necesitaron más soporte respiratorio en relación con los niños tratados en una unidad de medicina general. De los niños atendidos en la UCCP casi el 80% presentó Síndrome de Dificultad Respiratoria Aguda (SDRA) –que suele afectar a adultos con síntomas graves de COVID-19– y casi el 50% fueron conectados a un respirador. Como promedio, los niños ingresados en la UCCP permanecieron en el hospital cuatro días más que los niños ingresados en la unidad general. Los investigadores de CHAM y Einstein también determinaron que a pesar de que tanto la obesidad como el asma fueron factores muy prevalentes entre los niños de este estudio, ninguno de factores influyó en el nivel de asistencia recibido.

«Sabemos que en los adultos la obesidad es un factor de agravamiento de la enfermedad; sin embargo, sorprendentemente, nuestro estudio determinó que los niños ingresados en la unidad de cuidados intensivos no presentaron una prevalencia de obesidad más alta que los de la unidad general», asegura el investigador principal del estudio Jerry Y. Chao, MD, M.Sc., anestesista pediátrico en CHAM y Profesor Adjunto de Anestesiología en Einstein.

Los investigadores también determinaron que más de la mitad de los niños no tuvo ningún contacto conocido con individuos que hubieran dado positivo en el test del COVID. Esto quizá refleje que el virus se propague a través de personas asintomáticas y que el COVID-19 sea más frecuente en comunidades con altas densidades de población.

«Por fortuna la mayoría de los niños con COVID-19 progresan bien y, de hecho, algunos ni siquiera llegan a presentar síntomas; pero esta investigación nos recuerda que los niños no son inmunes a este virus y que algunos incluso requieren niveles de atención más intensivos», comenta el autor principal del estudio Shivanand S. Medar, MD, FAAP., especialista en Cuidados Intensivos Cardíacos en CHAM y Profesor Adjunto de Pediatría en Einstein. «Estas averiguaciones preliminares contribuyen a nuestra comprensión del COVID-19 en pacientes pediátricos, pero sería necesario seguir investigando para determinar cómo impacta realmente en los niños».

Los coautores del artículo son Kim Derespina, MD, Asistente en Cuidados Críticos de CHAM y Profesor Adjunto de Pediatría en Einstein; Michael D. Cabana, MD, MPH, Médico Jefe de CHAM y Jefe de la Cátedra The Michael I. Cohen, MD en el Departamento de Pediatría de Einstein y Montefiore; y Betsy Herold, MD, Jefa de la División de Enfermedades Infecciosas Pediátricas y Vicepresidenta de Investigación, CHAM y Einstein, y Profesora de Pediatría, de Microbiología e Inmunología, y de Obstetricia, Ginecología y Salud de la Mujer en Einstein.

Los pasos siguientes consisten en monitorizar a los pacientes y examinar sus resultados a largo plazo.

Children Not Immune To Coronavirus; New Study From Pandemic Epicenter Describes Severe COVID-19 Response In Children

NEW YORK, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — While most children infected with the novel coronavirus have mild symptoms, a subset requires hospitalization and a small number require intensive care. A new report from pediatric anesthesiologists, infectious disease specialists and pediatricians at the

NEW YORK, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — While most children infected with the novel coronavirus have mild symptoms, a subset requires hospitalization and a small number require intensive care. A new report from pediatric anesthesiologists, infectious disease specialists and pediatricians at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, describes the clinical characteristics and outcomes of children hospitalized with COVID-19, during the early days of the pandemic.

Montefiore

Published in the Journal of Pediatrics, the report compares 46 children between one month and 21 years old, who received care either on a general unit, or in the Pediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU) at CHAM. This is the largest single-center study from the United States to date to describe in detail the full spectrum of COVID-19 disease in hospitalized children.

Researchers found that children requiring intensive care had higher levels of inflammation and needed additional breathing support, compared to those who were treated on a general unit. Of the children being cared for in the PCCU, almost 80% had Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), which is more commonly associated with critically ill adult COVID-19 patients, and almost 50% of children with ARDS were placed on ventilators. On average, children in the PCCU stayed in the hospital four days longer than children on the general unit. Researchers at CHAM and Einstein also found that while obesity and/or asthma was highly prevalent in children in this study, these complications did not increase the likelihood that a child would need enhanced levels of care.

«We know that in adults, obesity is a risk factor for more severe disease, however, surprisingly, our study found that children admitted to the intensive care unit did not have a higher prevalence of obesity than those on the general unit,» said lead author Jerry Y. Chao, M.D., M.Sc., pediatric anesthesiologist, CHAM, and assistant professor of anesthesiology, Einstein.

Researchers also found that more than half of the children had no known contact with a COVID-positive person. This may reflect the fact that the virus can be spread by asymptomatic people and COVID-19 may be more prevalent in communities with a high population density.

«Thankfully most children with COVID-19 fare well, and some do not have any symptoms at all, but this research is a sobering reminder that children are not immune to this virus and some do require a higher level of care,» said senior author Shivanand S. Medar, M.D., FAAP., attending physician, Cardiac Intensive Care, CHAM, and assistant professor of pediatrics, Einstein. «These preliminary findings contribute to our understanding of COVID-19 in pediatric patients, but more research is needed to determine how the virus truly impacts children.»

Co-authors of the paper include Kim Derespina, M.D., critical care attending, CHAM, and assistant professor of pediatrics, Einstein; Michael D. Cabana, M.D., M.P.H., Physician-in-Chief at CHAM and The Michael I. Cohen, M.D., University Chair, Department of Pediatrics at Einstein and Montefiore; and Betsy Herold, M.D., chief of the division of pediatric infectious diseases and vice chair for research, CHAM and Einstein, and professor of pediatrics, of microbiology & immunology, and of obstetrics & gynecology and women’s health, Einstein.

For next steps, the investigators plan to follow the patients and examine their long-term outcomes.
