Die neue Anzeigetafel (Information board) in Wolfsberg

Dr. Harald Pressl, Sozialrat and Gesundheitsrat (Social and Health Minister), from Wolfsberg and the HTL Wolfsberg have finished their project. The numbers shining and changing every few seconds on the new information board, in front of the Rathaus Wolfsberg, are displaying the number of people that died due to smoking since the 29th of December 2007, for the whole world in the first row and Austria in the second row.

Dr. Harald Pressl: “Alle 9 sek stirbt weltweit ein Mensch am Rauchen (in Oesterreich alle 52 Sekunden) . 2020 werden es laut wHO 300 Millionen Tote weltweit sein.”

“The world and Austria needs to be informed about this and putting big numbers in front of people’s eyes usually works, at least for good deals when shopping. So, hopefully people will look and start to think.” says DI Daniel G. Pressl, son of Dr. Harald Pressl and Ceo of Redwired.

Redwired would certainly like to help in this cause and Dr. Harald Pressl has information on his ideas and thoughts as well as a link to a constantly updated view of the Anzeigetafel in his Redwired profile. You can view his profile here: www.redwired.org

Redwired presents at the St. Paul Maturaball 2007

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Redwired will present today at a big event, the St. Paul Maturaball 2007.

The St. Paul Maturaball is always a fascinating event and will open its doors today for students, alumni, people from Wolfsberg, Kaernten, Austria and the whole world. The rooms of the Konvikt in St. Paul, magically transformed by the students and teachers organizing the ball, will welcome more than 2000 guests, as usual.

Redwired hopes that some of the visitors will grasp a glims of its presentation at the ball. The St. Paul Maturaball 2007 – “St. Paul goes Broadway” is a member of Redwired and Redwired with its features tried to support it as good as possible. In the next week, even a new feature will be added to the Redwired, where users will be able to not only upload their digital fotos to their redwired album, but also develop them at their local fotostore through Redwired.

“The more the Redwired network grows the more powerful and useful its features will become for its users. We hope that some of the visitors of the ball will come to Redwired and look at pictures, as well as communicate with the students and leave feedback. The students of coming Maturaballs and future visitors will thank them, although nothing can really go wrong at such a nice and friendly event.” says DI Daniel Pressl, former student of the Stiftsgymnasium St. Paul.
