LONDON, March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — US lottery madness continues. Millions of Europeans, Australians and Latin Americans are ordering tickets for the $625 million US Powerball on Saturday.

TheLotter”s spokesman Adrian Cooremans: ‘US lotteries pull in a global crowd once jackpots reach this sort of level. And, yes, amounts at stake are astonishing. If there will be a winner this weekend, he or she will be wealthier than the average Hollywood star or top CEO – the sum”s probably high enough to buy a Premier League Football club outright. It really is the stuff dreams are made on.’

Cooremans continues: ‘In the past few months we have seen media exposure skyrocket. There have been items about theLotter from media outlets such as CNN, NBC, BBC Radio and Germany”s Bild newspaper. I think their interest springs from the trust our customers express to have in us. We actually physically purchase paper US lottery tickets rather than merely offering a betting service like some other companies. We operate according to the rules.’

‘US Powerball rules, for example, state that you do not have to be a citizen or a resident to play the game, but, in order to be able to collect any prize, the ticket must stay in the US. That”s why we keep customers” tickets inside a safe in a secure location in the States and send them a scan proving chain of custody. Winners are flown out to the US to claim their jackpot in person. Our past winners from Europe, Australia, Canada, Iraq and Latin America were all checked thoroughly by federal and state agencies and each time the conclusion was that theLotter and the individual winners acted in accordance with the rules of the lottery and the law.’ 

‘We already work together with US state legislatures and lottery commissions, but we”re intensifying the cooperation. In the coming months we”re set to launch an array of exclusive joint ventures with them – with their official stamp of approval for online play options. Both in East Coast states as well places on the West Coast, negotiations are in the final stages. Stay tuned!’

As thierry Ehrmann recalls, André Breton (then a medical student), father of surrealism, declared: ‘Madness is the first material of Surrealism.’

Miro, the most sought-after Surrealist 

Miro is undoubtedly one of the leading artists on the Western Art Market, first because his unbridled imagination made him one of the most interesting artists of the Surrealist scene, ‘the most Surreal of us all’ according to André Breton, and secondly, because he was particularly prolific: among the approximately one thousand Miro works that change hands at auction each year, there are always a couple of treasures that deserve a place in the world”s top museums.

In concrete terms, Joan Miro is known to have produced at least 2,000 paintings, 5,000 drawings, 500 sculptures, a few hundred ceramics and a large quantity of prints which represent 91% of his lots sold at auction every year. The prices of his canvases are extremely variable, depending on the historical and artistic importance of the work. Among the 17 Miro paintings sold so far this year, some smaller works (roughly 30 cm) have fetched around $250,000 whereas others with similar dimensions have fetched well over a million dollars.

A good quality work by Miro will fetch a high price… but when quality combines with size… the prices rocket. His best works sell for over $20 million, a threshold crossed eight times so far with a notable acceleration in the last 12 months. Indeed four of those results above the $20 million line have been hammered in the last year for Peinture (1933), Femme dans la nuit (1945) and Femme entendant de la musique (1945), all three in this Top 10, as well as for Mural I / Mural II / Mural III  (1933) which fetched $20 million last May at Christie”s in New York.

His turnover total for the year 2018 is therefore outstanding (so far $107.6 million since January) placing him among the world”s most successful artists. In our provisional ranking for 2018 Miro currently occupies 13th place. Considered universal, his work has appealed to Western and Japanese collectors, but it has not yet penetrated the world”s largest marketplace… China.

Magritte, two new records in 12 months 

Magritte”s double appearance in this ranking is all the more remarkable because his two latest records were hammered in the past 12 months. The first in November 2017, for a painting from his emblematic series LEmpire des Lumières. It”s interesting to trace the series” price history: in 1996, a major canvas from this famous series reached $3.5 million in London. In 2002, another, dated 1952, fetched $12.6 million in New York. That was a new peak for a Surrealist artist at the time.

In 2017, that peak was almost doubled when The empire of lights (1949) sold for $20.5 million in New York. That record, coming just after two other new records during the same year 2017, marked the most successful year in the Belgian Surrealist”s auction history, with an annual turnover of $77.8 million. The strong demand was almost certainly fanned by ”cultural news”, particularly by the exhibition La trahison des images at the Pompidou Center in Paris and the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (2016-2017).

The effervescence has continued this year. In February, Magritte elicited the highest bid during London”s Surrealist sales (Christie”s and Sotheby”s) ahead of Miro, with a pioneering 1926 work Le groupe silencieux that fetched $10 million. Then, on 12 November, Sotheby”s set a superb new record for the artist at $26.8 million.

The most expensive Magritte ever sold, the work bears the poetic and enigmatic title Le principe du plaisir and is a portrait of Edward James, an English heir to an American railroad fortune turned eccentric poet and influential patron of Surrealist art who invited Magritte to reside and paint in his London residence for two years.

Le principe du plaisir exceeded its low estimate by more than $10 million. The painting was acquired by the seller 40 years earlier for just $74,000.

Surrealist love… 

The third Surrealist in this ranking is none other than the great Salvador Dali with a work whose price might seem excessive compared to its modest size: 33 x 25 centimeters. The Portrait of Paul Eluard is a small oil-on-cardboard whose price went from $2 million in 1989 (Christie”s New York) to $21 million in 2011 at Sotheby”s (against an estimate of just $5-8 million!).

The price of this work therefore multiplied by 10 in twenty years, setting Dali”s all-time auction… and it still stands. Painted at the same time as the Great Masturbateur, Portrait of Paul Eluard condenses the Dalinian iconography of the time, especially with the roaring lion”s head symbolizing desire.

It was 1929 when Dali painted this delirious portrait of the poet who came to visit him in Cadaquès with his wife at that time.. a certain Gala. Dali immediately fell in love with Gala, who become his principal inspiration. The work is not only the portrait of Paul Eluard, it also marks the beginning of the most famous couple in Surrealism. Faced with such a powerful love story, the bidding escaped from the limitations of the work”s format…

Surrealism 

Surrealism* is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects, and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself. Its aim was to ‘resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality’.

Works of surrealism feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however, many surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact. Leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was, above all, a revolutionary movement.

Surrealism developed out of the Dada activities during World War I and the most important center of the movement was Paris. From the 1920s onward, the movement spread around the globe, eventually affecting the visual arts, literature, film, and music of many countries and languages, as well as political thought and practice, philosophy, and social theory.

On February 6, the St Kitts and Nevis Government issued a press release announcing the introduction of a new layer of security to its Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme. Digital fingerprinting is to be included as a new part of the already extensive due diligence procedures applied to Programme applicants. Repeatedly hailed by industry experts for its robust due diligence, St Kitts and Nevis will become the only Caribbean CBI jurisdiction to operate a digital fingerprinting system. The addition displays the Federation”s commitment to a Programme based on integrity.

Launched in 1984, St Kitts and Nevis” Programme is one of the industry”s most successful. Aspiring economic citizens can obtain second citizenship in return for an investment into a national development fund: the ”Sustainable Growth Fund”. The Government”s move to reinforce the Programme”s integrity is important not only for the nation”s international standing, but for applicants” personal reputations. Economic citizens are frequently entrepreneurial businesspersons, for whom a strong business reputation is essential. By strengthening security procedures, St Kitts and Nevis will be able to better safeguard the reputations of successful applicants.

The news broke at a recent citizenship event in Dubai hosted by Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon. Mark Brantley. CBI agents and citizens attended the event, and Minister Brantley was joined by Attorney General Vincent Byron Jr. and the Head of the Citizenship by Investment Unit Les Khan. Mr Khan revealed that the necessary legislative framework for this introduction of biometric data is already established. He said, ‘agents looked at this new addition in a positive light because they are also interested in ensuring that we get the best people and that we don”t get any rogue individuals into our programme. This is something that is very important in that region, particularly because of the possibility of terrorist financing and terrorist activity, so we have to be very careful.’

Minister Brantley also took the opportunity to alleviate concerns surrounding unsanctioned discounts on the Programme”s real estate option seen last year. He stated that a full police investigation is underway and that the Government intends to bring justice to those responsible.

International legal advisory CS Global Partners is government-mandated to promote St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship by Investment Programme.

According to thierry Ehrmann Founder and CEO of Artprice: ‘For multiple reasons, 2019 is commencing with an excellent outlook for Artprice and its loyal shareholders over the last 21 years’.

The first exceptionally positive news is our penetration of the Chinese Art Market with its huge potential to generate new customers for Artprice. This move will substantially boost our sales turnover via the sale of Artprice subscriptions offered in China as of 1 January 2019 via Artron.net, our institutional partner. Artron is widely recognised as the most powerful actor on the Chinese Art Market.

The second positive news is that a week ago Artprice signed a deal with the most powerful press network in the world that will project Artprice”s hot market news to 1.8 billion people on a weekly basis.

This exceptional partnership has been concluded with the world”s leading newswire, Cision. Cision”s software allows users to identify key influencers, craft and distribute strategic content, and measure meaningful impact (see Cision”s official press release Artprice and Cision Enter Distribution Partnership at https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/artprice-and-cision-enter-distribution-partnership-300770437.html (Cision is listed on the NYSE, code CISN).

This partnership will allow Artprice to project highly pertinent Art Market News and Information on a weekly basis. Cision”s electronic newswire will communicate all of Artprice”s unique market indices… the Artprice100®, the Artprice Global Index®, the AMCI®, etc… in real time.

By reaching more than 1.8 billion targeted people in 19 languages on 5 continents (representing 90% of the world”s GDP), this move unquestionably strengthens Artprice”s position as World Leader in Art Market Information.

Thanks to this massive news & info distribution agreement, Artprice will project its unique know-how and understanding of the Art Market, reaching new art fans, collectors and professionals whose geographical location previously hindered an economical distribution of the Artprice brand and its databases.

This obstacle has now been eliminated, allowing Artprice to be the ”glocal reference for the Art Market. (”Glocal” is a combination of two words: global and local. It is often used to indicate a global marketing strategy with local relays. Hence the dictum ‘Think global, act local‘).

Artprice was the global leader… but there were still a number of ”local” economic ”white zones”.

As of 1 January 2019, Artprice, with its loyal institutional partner Artron, will irrigate the 34 divisions / provinces of the People”s Republic of China with its paid databank content.

With Cision, no territory – whatever the continent – will escape Artprice… now a truly ”Glocal” and unique reference for the Art Market.

In short, with Cision, Artprice has become unavoidable at the global level for all matters relating to the Art Market because Cision has the world”s largest and most reliable press release network that can identify key influencers. Art Press Agency® and Artmarket.com is now the world”s leading art press agency dedicated to the Art Market.

– Wirecard reduces cash handling at airports for Latin Americas largest airline  

Payout cards provide passengers with quick and hassle-free compensation  

Wirecard, the global innovation leader in digital financial technology, will enable the LATAM Airlines Group, Latin America”s largest airline with a current fleet of 312 aircraft and 67 million passengers a year, to offer passengers quick and hassle-free compensation using payout cards in the event of flight disruptions or delay, without cash handling. As of now, affected LATAM Airlines passengers at numerous European airports will receive IROP (Irregular Operations) cards issued by Wirecard to compensate for any disruptions on their journey.

IROP cards enable LATAM passengers to receive compensation for unforeseen circumstances not only quickly and easily, but also in line with the legal regulations that apply in each case. These payout cards are issued to affected passengers and digitally loaded with the applicable amount. Before, large sums of cash had to be dealt with and lengthy, sometimes expensive, transfers had to be carried out. Now, these intuitive payout cards are the perfect compensation alternative for the airline. Passengers can use them to withdraw cash, pay at the point of sale and for online shopping.

Sandra Schlebusch, Finance Manager Europe at the LATAM Airlines Group, said, ‘Delays and disruptions can never be completely avoided in air travel. In these cases, it is very important to us that we quickly help affected passengers without any unnecessary bureaucracy. The new IROP cards that Wirecard has developed for us are the perfect solution on account of their settlement flexibility. Wirecard”s expertise in digital payment was an essential factor in successfully establishing the solution.’

Jörg Möller, EVP Sales Travel at Wirecard, added, ‘The digitization of the airline industry is a major driver of growth. As a result, passenger expectations have significantly risen. Therefore, particularly with regards to a good customer experience, it is important for airlines to offer their customers modern digital solutions with clear added value. The airlines themselves are also benefiting enormously from the launch of IROP cards as they are saving a great deal of time in terms of administration, which results in cost savings as well. We are delighted to be digitizing payment processes for the LATAM Airlines Group.’

According to current predictions, the number of flight passengers will nearly double to 7.8 billion worldwide by the year 2036. As passenger numbers rapidly grow, the risk to airlines of delays and cancellations grows with it. As a result, a hassle-free compensation process is currently an important defining characteristic in a very competitive market environment.

A quickly reloadable prepaid card is also a practical solution for airline employees: As well as IROP cards, Wirecard also offers ‘Crew Cards’, with which travel expenses can be paid quickly and directly to flight attendants and pilots.

About Wirecard:  

Wirecard (GER:WDI) is one of the world”s fastest growing digital platforms in the area of financial commerce. We provide both corporate clients and consumers with a constantly expanding ecosystem of real-time value-added services built around innovative digital payments by using an integrated B2B2C approach.

In an opening keynote presentation, Lux Research analyst Thomas Dawidczyk will trace how innovation in smart textiles is moving from the materials themselves to analysis of the data they can provide using sensor integration. The conference”s first day will examine central Industry 4.0 themes, including robotics, augmented reality and harnessing ”big data”. Day 1 will conclude with a networking reception, exclusively sponsored by MLSE®.  Day 2 begins with a keynote presentation from Ian Cronin, WEF”s project lead for accelerating sustainable production, who also heads its efforts to advance the implementation of 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies. Further topic will range from digital printing and additive manufacturing to the emerging retail demand for full supply-chain transparency.

Re:Think Materials (Wednesday – Thursday, 7-8 November) will provide expert technical insights for product developers, including market opportunities in connected textiles; conductive fibre and yarn; textiles for energy harvesting and storage; printed textile electronics; the application possibilities of graphene; and the use of MLSE (multiplex laser surface enhancement technology) for textile finishing. Keynote speakers are: TILT Innovation”s chief innovation officer, Milli Tharakan; Despina Papadopoulos, CEO and founder of Principled Design; and Anne Prahl, design and innovation consultant at Concept+Design.

Textile Business Futures (Thursday, 8 November) is an intensive one-day introduction for C-level executives and will examine digital business strategy, risk management, return on investment, leadership and culture change.
