Page14 POST;GAZETrE, MBER'13; 20-t3  ,- NEWS RIEFS NEWSPERS AND OTHER PLICATIONS) GENERAL ELECTRIC BUYS JET ENGINES (Avco) FROM ITALY. The group Aria, producer of the jet engines included those mounted on the euro fighter "Typhun," has sold its Avio division to General Electric. The transaction agreed upon by both parties was worth 3.3 billion euro's (USD @ $4.5 billion). The major shareholders of Avio, CINVEN (81%) and the multinational FINMECCANICA (14.3%) made a profit of 700 million euro's (USD $950 million). They had purchased the aviation group for 2.6 billion euro's. How- ever, the two corporations kept the aerospace division (of Avio). General Electric Aviation has expanded its strategic position in the jet propulsion production, a most interest- ing field in the aeronautical industry. MORE TALENTED UNIVERSITY GRADUATES CONTINUE TO LEAVE ITALY. Over a ten year period, from 2002 to 201 l, the number of University graduates going abroad has tripled while the classical Italian emigration, consisting of labor- ers without an education beyond middle school has dimin- ished. The young talent has chosen destinations that are close: Switzerland, Germany, France and Great Britain. Some of the skilled youngsters have chosen the United States or Brazil. The data comes from the statistical agency ISTAT. The four European countries named above are the choice of 44% of the young 'brains,' age 25 and up. The United Kingdom seems to be the preferred destination of the emigrating students, at 11.9%. The very few who return to Italy come mainly from Germany or Switzerland. A NEW AND MORE ACCURATE DIAGNOSTIC TEST FOR TUMORS DEVELOPED IN ITALY. As compared to the tra- ditional testing for tumors, the new procedure developed at Rome's National Institute for Tumors 'Regina Elena,' is more accurate and more detailed in the examination of the prostate. The new examination of a patient's blood makes it possible to predict and monitor the virulence of the tumor, doing away with the now obsolete biopsies, now unnecessary. In 2010 the American F.D.A. approved the first therapeutic vaccine against cancer to the prostate, capable of stimulating the immune system to attack the tumor. Meanwhile more studies are being conducted to find new 'weapons' to fight the most common male tumor. One of the studies is oriented toward finding a new genetic test for a precocious diagnosis on the very assumption that hereditary factors influence 40% of the diversity of the PSA levels. Stay tunedl FOREIGN MULTINATIONALS ESTABLISH A PLACE IN ITALY. How many of them are there? Where do they come from? For example, The United Kingdom lists 1,138 corpo- rations; The United States has 2.282; Germany's present numbers are 1,974; France, 1,424; the Low Countries, 544; Spain, 569; Switzerland, 1,424; Luxemburg, 535. The total foreign personnel numbers 1.2 million. The productive activities consist of: pharmaceuticals (58.8%; chemicals 31%; information and communications 14%; travel agen- cies, rentals and business support 11.8%. Do you get the picture?

(Continued from Page I) While many Americans fumed at a permit being given to a group concerned about Muslim prejudice in this country, one group decided to do something. Bikers all across the coun- try using social media planned a two million biker ride to Washington, D.C., to counter the approved Mus- lim march. The groups went before the city council, the same one that approved the March Against Fear and requested their own no-stop permit to ride through the City of Wash- ington also on September l lth and were denied the permit. Not to be stopped and in the true spirit of America, the Bikers rode on. Instead of a two hour American Pride ride through the city, they decided to ride their bikes all day in the Nation's Capital and stop at every red light. They apologized upfront for the traffic night- mare that resulted when two million bikers rode their Harleys through the city to stand up for the U.S.A. This is the true spirit of American patriotism. We remember what hap- pened on September 11 th in 2001 and again in 2012. As Lee Greenwood sings, "God bless the U.S.A." Conned Historic Boston Joy Street: The African American National Historic Site and Black Heritage Trail are minutes away from busy transit stops and bicycle routes but are dominated by vehicular traffic. A promi- nent pedestrian entrance at Joy and Cambridge Streets to the African American National Historic Site, in ad- dition to a curbless street- scape, will facilitate shared use and strengthen ac- cessible routes into the neighborhood. "This significant Depart- ment of Transportation grant will help strengthen Boston's transportation infrastructure and improve access to his- toric sites," Senator Elizabeth Warren said. "Boston's rich history attracts millions of visitors from around the world every year, and these funds will support the local tourism industry and encourage eco- nomic growth. I applaud Mayor Menino for his leader- ship in securing this TIGER grant for the city." "Boston has some of our country's most treasured his- (Continued from Page 2) toric sites, which attract tourists from around the world." Representative Cap- uano said. "These federal funds will improve visitor access to our history by bet- ter connecting the sites to public transit through pedes- trian and bike paths." Connect Historic Boston is an initiative between the National Park Service and the Boston Transportation Department to promote im- proved access for visitors and workers in the downtown his- toric area. Funded by the Fed- eral Transit Administration, the initiative has an exten- sive advisory and inter- agency group with represen- tatives from neighborhood councils, advocacy groups, non-profits, as well as Fed- eral, State, and local govern- ment representatives. Over the last twelve months, this project team has developed engineering drawings for safety and navigational improvements, and worked with local businesses, neigh- borhood councils and the non-profits that manage the city's historic sites and build- ings to develop detailed de- signs and launch an out- reach program. Outreach pro- grams supporting the project include an elementary school based-curriculum linking historic sites via the Silver Line, walks and rides, and a public arts competition. Fifty-two transportation projects in 37 states will receive a approximately $474 million from the U.S. Depart- ment of Transportation's (DOT) Transportation Invest- ment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) 2013 dis- cretionary grant program. The highly competitive TI- GER program offers one of the only federal funding possibili- ties for large, multi-modal projects that often are not suitable for other federal funding sources. These fed- eral funds leverage money from private sector partners, states, local governments, metropolitan planning orga- nizations and transit agen- cies. The 2013 TIGER round alone supports $1.8 billion in overall project investments. ACROSS 1. *It reads music on CDs 6. a Wonderful Life" 9. Praise or glorify 13.
