Chair of American Alliance of Museums Board Joins Leadership Team
FORT WORTH, Texas (PRWEB) January 14, 2019
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is pleased to announce Kippen de Alba Chu, executive director of Iolani Palace in Honolulu and current Chair of the American Alliance of Museums board of directors, will assume a new leadership role as chief of staff to the president. In this capacity, de Alba Chu will oversee all aspects of daily operations.
A nationally recognized museum professional, de Alba Chu brings extensive leadership experience in executive non-profit and public affairs to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. In addition to his role with the AAM board, de Alba Chu is also a member of the Western Museums Association, the Royal Order of Kamehameha and the Hawaiian Civic Club of Honolulu.
“I’m very pleased to have someone of Kippen’s caliber join our team at this time,” said Van A. Romans, museum president. “We worked together for nearly a decade on the AAM board. He is well regarded and deeply respected by his peers, and I think his dynamic leadership ability will be an asset not only to our Museum but to our community, as well.”
De Alba Chu, who speaks five languages, is a graduate of the American University of Paris and studied in Italy at Urbino and the University of Bologna. He served as chief of staff for Hawaii state representative Bertha Kawakami for nearly 15 years before assuming his role as executive director of Iolani Palace, where he led the iconic landmark through its accreditation process and a successful capital campaign to fund its restoration and preservation.
“Not only does Kippen have an outstanding track record as an innovative museum leader, but he also serves as a true champion and advocate for the museum field,” said Laura Lott, president and CEO of the American Alliance of Museums. “He brings a great perspective to the position, having served in many different roles throughout his career. Alliance members especially appreciate Kippen’s dedication to working collaboratively across our diverse field.”
Iolani Palace is the only official royal residence in the United States and has flourished as an essential cultural destination under de Alba Chu’s leadership. Visitors and revenue to Iolani Palace have more than doubled, while the site has also expanded its hours of operation. “One of our most significant accomplishments was gaining accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums in 2014,” said de Alba Chu. "We joined only four other museums in Hawaii with this distinction.”
De Alba Chu and his family will move to Fort Worth soon, and he will assume his new role at the Museum in early February. “Having the chance to work with Van Romans and his team is by far the most exciting aspect of this opportunity,” said de Alba Chu. “In the museum field, colleagues describe Van as a visionary and have deep respect for him and his creativity. FWMSH, as it stands today, epitomizes Van’s imagination and prescience of how great museums have a long-lasting and positive impact on people, especially children.”
“This is an important time for the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History,” said Romans. “We are at the leading edge of museum innovation, and the addition of Kippen to our team reinforces that commitment to excellence and our future.”

MILAN (Reuters) - Footballers in Italy's Serie A should stage sit-down protests on the pitch if there is racist chanting during a match, former Juventus, AC Milan and Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello suggested on Monday.

· *There is now conclusive proof that Europe is in the midst of an economic slump.*
· *Data released on Monday showed that industrial production throughout the whole of the eurozone dropped sharply, pointing to only a glacial pace of growth in the continent at the end of 2018.*
· *Two of the continent's four biggest economies, representing a total GDP of more than $5.5 trillion, are on the brink of recession.*
The global economy is fraught with problems at the start of 2019. President Donald Trump's trade war with China rumbles on; the US government shutdown is now the longest in history and is dragging on the country's economy; and in China, economic data points to a continuing slowdown for the world's second largest economy.
As economists, investors, and policymakers focus intently on what's going on in the US and China, there's another major economic crisis brewing.
This time, it's in Europe, where growth has slowed practically to a standstill, and two of the continent's four biggest economies, representing a total GDP of more than $5.5 trillion, are on the brink of, or already in, recession.
Data released on Monday showed that industrial production throughout the whole of the eurozone slumped into the end of 2018, signalling that the single currency area's economy is still growing, but doing so at a glacial pace.
Eurostat, the EU's statistical authority said on Monday that industrial production fell by 1.7% between October and November last year.
"The numbers bode ill for GDP in Q4," Andrew Kenningham, the chief Europe economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients.
"While the eurozone may have eked out a small increase in GDP in Q4, it has clearly shifted down a gear. And there is little reason to expect a sharp rebound in 2019."
The chart below shows the sharp contraction in industry, the traditional driver of many major European economies:
Away from the broad progress of the whole eurozone, things are even more dire. Both Germany, Europe's largest economy (GDP: $3.7 trillion), and Italy, Europe's 4th largest, and the eurozone's 3rd largest (GDP: $1.9 trillion) saw their economies slump into the end of 2018, while France is also in the doldrums.
When official data about growth is released in March, both Germany and Italy will almost certainly have fallen into technical recessions, defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth.
*Germany's economic powerhouse struggles*
Data last week showed that Germany, Europe's economic powerhouse and by far its largest economy, has likely fallen into a recession after the country's manufacturing sector reported a truly shocking end to 2018.
In the month of November industrial production fell by 1.9%, while the year-on-year data showed a 4.6% drop, the worst annual performance since the financial crisis.
*Read more:* Germany, the 4th-largest economy, probably just went into an unexpected recession
"Germany likely was in recession in H2 2018 ... Yesterday's manufacturing data in Germany provided alarming evidence of a much more severe slowdown in the second half of last year than economists had initially expected," Claus Vistesen, the chief eurozone economist at research house Pantheon Macroeconomics said.
Manufacturing is the big driver of the German economy, so when it falters, so too does Germany as a whole.
The economy already shrank 0.1% in the third quarter of last year, and the data points to a second quarter of negative growth in 2018's final three months.
Much of that slump is down to what's happening in the automotive industry, long the jewel in German manufacturing's crown. Greater competition in global markets, as well as newly introduced European Union greenhouse-gas emissions targets for automakers — the EU seeks to reduce emissions by 30% — have helped to trample on the auto sector in the country. BMW, for instance, saw third-quarter operating profits plunge 27%.
*A third recession in a decade?*
As Germany struggles, so too does Italy look to be on the cusp of a fresh recession, a third in just over a decade, as the systematic weaknesses in the country's economy continues unabated.
While the budget crisis that gripped the country in the second half of 2018 seems to finally have a solution, the country's government is volatile and highly euroskeptic, and it is not impossible that it will go back on promises made to the EU during negotiations.
Not only that, but the fundamentals of the Italian economy continue to struggle. Like Germany, Italy's manufacturing sector has bombed out in recent months, with both survey and official data showing a continued contraction in the sector at the end of 2018.

Andrew Harker, an associate director at IHS Markit, which compiles PMI, said last week that it was a "worrying end to the year for Italian manufacturers, with firms continuing to struggle to secure new business."
"This is in marked contrast to the start of 2018, when the sector was experiencing strong growth. Moreover, with business confidence at a six-year low, there appears little sense of optimism that the current soft patch will come to an end in the near future," he added.
Italian GDP, like Germany, also contracted 0.1% in the third quarter of the year, and the weakening manufacturing sector points to another quarter of contraction, and a second nation in a technical recession.
*Other nations are nearing recessions, but aren't there yet*
As Italy and Germany look to enter recessions, the rest of Europe is also struggling. In France, the eurozone's third largest economy, growth has stopped in its tracks as the continued protests of the "Gilets Jaune" subdue activity.
The yellow vest protests are expected to halve the country's GDP growth by 0.2% from 0.4% in the fourth quarter, and retailers have lost more than €1 billion in revenues since the protests started in November.

Dublin, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Poles for Street Lights & Parking Ed 1 2018" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.This report provides forecasts and analysis of an important segment of the pole market - Street Light and Parking Lot poles. They account for 21% of the 1.6 billion global population of poles. Light pole sales are growing fast, driven by the rise of the megacities in the developing world and Passive Safety regulations in the developed countries.
*Report Scope*· Sales of street light poles in units and $ value are forecast from 2017 to 2025 by country and pole type (steel/aluminium, concrete, wood, composite), for new installations and replacements.
· Replacements of concrete and wood poles with Passive Safety steel/aluminium poles are analysed.
· Passive Safety is driving a switch from wood and concrete to steel, aluminium and composite poles in the street light segment of the market, but it is not applicable in parking lots.
· Passive Safety is a significant driver of the street light pole market. The concept appeared about thirty years ago and is now accepted as essential for road safety in advanced countries. This report explains what it is and how it works.
· Not all roads need Passive Safety devices. Passive Safety poles choices are based on road category, accident rates and speed limits. These categories determine the type of Passive Safety pole required.
· Road segments and their requirement for Passive Safety are analysed.
· Types of Passive Safety poles are described, with their applications.
· In the developing world, the exponential expansion of megacities is creating a continuous demand for more street lights. Some of the Middle Eastern countries are leading in Passive Safety regulation, with increased cost per unit.
· The Smart City concept is well established and many cities are introducing smart measures. Street lighting is an important element of the Smart City, including a switch from HPS lamps to LEDs, and CMS. Passive safety is an important ingredient and poles are being modernised.
· Parking is receiving increased attention. Demand is growing and it uses a disproportionate amount of space in today's cities. The parking situation varies enormously around the world but it is becoming a 'hot' market in some countries.
· On-street parking is covered with street lights, but off-street parking consists of parking 'garages' which have light fittings, and parking lots, which have light poles. The parking market is analysed together with the parking lot pole population and annual installations.
· 56 manufacturers of poles of all materials feature in this report including; Valmont, Europole, Induo Systemholztechnik, Sabre Industries, Union Metal, Shakespeare, Strongwell, RS Technologies, Powertrusion, Duratel, Koppers Inc, Scanpole, Sapa, Jerol, Petrofisa, Structa, and others.

Passive Safety is a fundamental driver of the market for street lightng poles in the advanced countries and is reaching out into other markets. The norms define different speed classes for different levels of safety for passengers, and categorise columns as high energy absorbing, low energy absorbing and non-energy absorbing elements. In addition to composite and aluminium poles, there are two types of frangible steel pole; the breakaway or slip-base pole, and the impact absorbing pole. Outlines of Passive Safety in the EU and the main using countries, the United States and others.
*Chapter 4 - PARKING*
Parking is a smaller segment of the market for lighting poles than street lights, amounting to 9% of it. Both on-street and off-street parking can be divided into two categories, regulated and/or paid-for parking and unregulated, free parking. The global markets are outlined and installed bases tabled with annual demand.
