The materials do not arrive at SEVEL in Val di Sangro

With the covid there was a significant reduction in raw materials, due to both the reduction in availability and the increase in cost. Now with the war in Ukraine, things are further complicated: Russia is one of the richest passes in raw materials, especially metal materials. A small local example is the interruption of production in Abruzzo.

Three more days of production stop at Sevel in Atessa (Chieti) due to the lack of material, specifically the ZF power plants to set up the Ducato van.

The working activity will be from 14.15 tomorrow, Friday 1st April, and until 5.45 am on Monday 4th April.

This was announced by the RSA of Uilm.

The production resumes, except for various other communications, on the first shift on Monday 4 April. The CKD department of the Bodywork works only partially. For this stop will be required the economic treatment of layoffs. The Sevel management also communicated to the unions that on Saturday 9 April, turn B, and Sunday 10, turn C, they will carry out the recovery of the previous stops.

Amazon: The first American union of workers of the e-commerce giant was recently created in New York

Employees at Amazon’s Staten Island warehouse in New York voted to form the e-commerce giant’s first American union. In the vote, 2654 employees said they were in favor of the union and 2,131 were against, according to data provided by the National Labor Relations Board of Brooklyn.

The historic vote is the result of the battle of Christian Smalls, a former Amazon employee fired for organizing a protest in 2020 for greater protection against Covid, which created the Amazon Labor Union with which he obtained victory over the Seattle giant that in the past it had managed to block any other attempt at unionization.

When the results were announced, applause rang out from the small crowd gathered for the occasion at the foot of the building in the Brooklyn neighborhood where the counting took place. The name of the union, ALU, is sung several times. Its president Christian Smalls uncorks a bottle of champagne: “People have spoken today, they want a union,” he said. Shortly after, in front of the press, he ironically thanked Amazon boss Jeff Bezos for going into space, “because while he was up there, we were able to create a union.”

In decline for several decades, unions have achieved several symbolic victories in the United States in recent months, starting with the explicit support of US President Joe Biden. He also greeted the victory of the ALU union, saying “happy” that the employees can “be heard”.

E3 2022, the video game fair has been canceled

E3 2022 will not take place, in any form. The largest video game fair in the world, a traditional annual event that Los Angeles E3 2021 was held in a digital format. In 2022 there won’t even be that.

“It had already been announced that E3 would not be held live in 2022 due to the continuing health risks associated with COVID-19. Today we announce that in 2022 there will not even be E3 in digital version”, reads a statement. of ESA. “We will devote all our energy and resources to deliver a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience this summer.”

In a world that after two years of emergency tests for coexistence with the virus, albeit in no particular order (from lockdowns to the end of the state of emergency in Italy), the world of fairs linked to entertainment and technology is moving again with lead feet: after the CES and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in attendance, albeit with many defections and small ranks, E3 chooses the path of the sabbatical year, but to speak only of prudence would be an understatement.

While it is true that last week the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco was held, from which many industry professionals are rumored to have come out with COVID-19 positivity, it remains clear that more and more companies in the sector are opting to hold reviews. its online events, from Nintendo with Direct to Sony with State of Play.

If all goes well, E3 will return in 2023 taking over the reins of the videogame scene, but for this to happen it will have to be supported by the publisher and be economically sustainable. In the meantime, there are those who try to fill the void: Geoff Keighley has promptly confirmed that the Summer Game Fest will be held in June.

2 April (’22): International Children’s Book Day

International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is a yearly event sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), an international non-profit organization. Founded in 1967, the day is observed on or around Hans Christian Andersen‘s birthday, April 2. Activities include writing competitions, announcements of book awards and events with authors of children’s literature.

Each year a different National Section of IBBY has the opportunity to be the international sponsor of ICBD. It decides upon a theme and invites a prominent author from the host country to write a message to the children of the world and a well-known illustrator to design a poster. These materials are used in different ways to promote books and reading. Many IBBY Sections promote ICBD through the media and organize activities in schools and public libraries. Often ICBD is linked to celebrations around children’s books and other special events that may include encounters with authors and illustrators, writing competitions or announcements of book awards.

2 April (’22): World Autism Awareness Day

World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognized day on April 2 every year, encouraging Member States of the United Nations to take measures to raise awareness about people with Autism Spectrum Disorder throughout the world. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/RES/62/139). World Autism Awareness Day”, passed in council on 1 November 2007, and adopted on 18 December 2007. It was proposed by Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned, the United Nations Representative from Qatar and consort to Emir Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, and supported by all member states.

This resolution was passed and adopted without a vote in the UN General Assembly, mainly as a supplement to previous UN initiatives to improve human rights.

World Autism Day is one of only seven official health-specific UN Days. The day itself brings individual autism organizations together all around the world to aid in things like research, diagnoses, treatment, and acceptance for those with a developmental path affected by autism.

The terms “Autism Awareness Day” and “Autism Awareness Month” are often contested by autism rights advocates, who claim that they feed into perceived ableism against autistic people. Such groups, including the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, advocate using the term “Autism Acceptance day” as an alternative for both events under the belief that it promotes overcoming anti-autism prejudice rather than simply increasing awareness of autism.
