Italian Leaders Chasing American Consumers With Yearlong $21.6 Million Initiative

NEW YORK — In a major vote of confidence in American consumers, Italy’s Vice Minister of Economic Development Carlo Calenda on Monday launched a yearlong, $ 21.6 million initiative tailor-made to bolster Italian fashion exports to the U.S. market.
Before detailing the multitiered program with other leading Italian trade officials at the Jacob K. Javits Center here Monday, Calenda discussed how the dollar’s strength against the euro, the industrialization of China and the shifting global marketplace were among the factors that spurred the effort. Last year, Italian exports to the U.S. totaled 5.2 billion euros, or $ 5.6 billion, an 11 percent increase compared to 2013. Italy has seen 4.5 percent market share growth in the U.S. since 2013. Because of increased spending due to the dollar gaining strength against the euro, Italy’s growth was 23.3 percent in the first quarter compared to the same period lat year.
“In the first phase of globalization, the mantra was, ‘You have to be present everywhere.’ Now you have to be much more selective.

Chasing Midnight

Chasing Midnight


Quinn Mason is a young Southern gentleman. Perhaps, gentleman is a stretch for how he lived his earlier years. He was the kid whose life seemed charmed, a popular athlete in high school who won a full scholarship. Life was on track for him until the death of his parents. In one terrible moment, Quinn went from having everything to being everything for his young siblings. He left college and used the money from his parent’s life insurance policy to buy a bar. The bar supported him and the kids, affording him the ability to give for them the life was robbed of, even sending them to college. Mhisery Bellemy has returned to Midnight, reluctantly. Her mother died, and she is left to take care of her drunken father and the family cafe. She had escaped the small town’s clutches as soon as she was of age, and swore never to return. Now, her siblings have turned to her, leaning heavily on her for help. The woman who got out of town and made a life she loves is now forced, by the bonds of family, and the weight of obligation, to return and give up what she had worked to build for herself. These two are unlikely to cross paths, but chance throws them into the right place at the right time. Quinn’s brother is the catalyst that brings Mhisery into Quinn’s line of sight. And that’s all it took, one look and he knows he has to have her. The golden boy athlete is now drawn to the tall, tattooed woman stepping off the last bus into town. Will Quinn ever have the woman he desires, and make her his own, or will she return to the life she loves far away from the small town of Midnight, and Quinn, or will she stay and make a life with the man she loves?Chasing Midnight tells a story of love, friendship, and sacrifice. This talented duo, Shyloh & Alex Morgan, will rip your heart out and have you falling in love with the inhabitants of this quaint, quirky, town.

Chasing Che

Chasing Che


Intrepid journalist Patrick Symmes sets off on his BMW R80 G/S in search of the people and places in Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s classic Motorcycle Diaries, seeking out his own adventure as well as the legacy of the icon Che would become, Symmes retraces the future revolutionary’s path. And on the way he runs out of gas in an Argentine desert, talks a Peruvian guerrilla out of taking him hostage, wipes out in the Andes, and, in Cuba, drinks himself blind with Che’s travel partner, Alberto Granado. Here is the unforgettable story of a wanderer’s quest for food, shelter, and wisdom. Here, too, is the portrait of a continent whose dreams of utopia give birth not only to freedom fighters, but also to tyrants whose methods include torture and mass killing. Masterfully detailed, insightful, unforgettable, Chasing Che transfixes us with the glory of the open road, where man and machine traverse the unknown in search of the spirit’s keenest desires. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun


In the grand tradition of the scholar-adventurer, acclaimed author Richard Cohen takes us around the world to illuminate our relationship with the star that gives us life. Drawing on more than seven years of research, he reports from locations in eighteen different countries. As he soon discovers, the Sun is present everywhere-in mythology, language, religion, politics, sciences, art, literature, and medicine, even in the ocean’s depths. For some ancient worshippers, our star was a man abandoned by his spouse because his brightness made her weary. The early Christians appropriated the Sun’s imagery, with the cross becoming an emblem of the star and its rays, and the halo a variation of that. Einstein helped replicate the Sun’s power to create the atomic bomb, while Richard Wagner had Tristan inveigh against daylight as the enemy of romantic love. In this splendidly illustrated volume packed with captivating facts, extraordinary myths, and surprising anecdotes, Cohen not only explains the star that so inspires us, but shows how multifacted our relationship with it has been-and continues to be.
