  1. Plus de 5 700 statisticiens, provenant de partout sur la planète, se donnent rendez-vous à Montréal entre les 3 et 8 août prochains. Parmi eux: un jeune génie américain des prévisions. Pendant cette période, le Palais des congrès de Montréal accueillera le Joint Statistical Meeting 2013, la plus importante rencontre de statisticiens sur la planète. À cette occasion, les participants en profiteront pour célébrer l’Année internationale de la statistique, et discuteront ensemble – à l’aide de 700 conférenciers et tables rondes- des plus récentes pratiques susceptibles de contribuer à l’avancement de cette science. La statistique occupe une position centrale dans l’établissement, entre autres, de politiques publiques, de décisions d’affaires, de mesures économiques ou financières. D’autres disciplines comme le sport, le météorologie et la médecine en font également un usage quotidien. Le «prodige» des prévisions Entre autres invités de renom, notons la présence de Nate Silver, fondateur du blogue politique FiveThirtyEight.com. Qualifié de prodige du «number-crunching» par le New York Times, M. Silver s’est d'abord fait connaître en 2008 en parvenant à prédire le résultats de l’élection présidentielle, dans pas moins de 49 des 50 États américains. Quatre ans plus tard, l'an passé, le jeune statisticien américain a laissé sans voix l’ensemble des analystes et journaliste politiques américains en parvenant cette fois à prédire le résultat du scrutin présidentielle dans l’ensemble des 50 États du pays. http://www.lesaffaires.com/secteurs-d-activite/general/des-milliers-de-statisticiens-bientot-a-montreal/559973#.UfGZGKw8CCg
  2. Festivals: The Festival International de Jazz de Montréal wins the prestigious 2007 Silver Posted by: eJazzNews Readeron Tuesday, January 29, 2008 - 11:26 AM Montreal, Monday, January 28, 2008 - The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International presented the prestigious Silver Adrian Award 2007 to the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal during a ceremony held today in New York. This was the 51st anniversary of the Silver Adrian Award, considered a very high distinction in the travel sector. A jury consisting of experts from the domains of hotel management, travel, tourism and media considered no fewer than 1,300 submissions before choosing the Festival in the category of "Attractions/Theme Park for Feature Placement Print-Consumer Newspaper" after having read an account in the San Francisco Chronicle. "We are very honoured to receive this prestigious award. It is the result of years of work by the Festival to develop and deploy a marketing strategy, which appears to have paid off handsomely, judging by the growing number of tourists who flock to Montreal each year for our annual 'high mass' of jazz. I would also like to highlight the excellent work and commitment of Lou Hammond & Associates, the agency which has represented us for years in the U.S. market," stated André Ménard, co-founder and artistic director of the Festival. Every summer, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal presents over 650 shows, including over 280 indoor performances and 372 free outdoor concerts on 25 different stages. Close to 3000 musicians from some 30 countries take part in this massive musical party, with over 2.1 million people pouring onto the site to enjoy it all. For its upcoming edition, the Festival is preparing an enticing outdoor program set to groove to the rhythms of the world. The 29th edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal takes place from June 26 to July 6, 2008. www.montrealjazzfest.com http://www.ejazznews.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=9071&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0
