The past 30 years have seen tremendous advances in the world of electronics and automation. When the digital revolution began, many predicted that automation would eventually spell the end of employment as we know it. So far, this gloomy outlook has not come to fruition, and many believe it never will. Jack Pukal, CEO of Polish engineering company PROSTER Sp. z. o.o., is one of those who believe automation will continue to bring positive developments to the industrial workforce.
It is no secret that one of the most widely debated topics is the progression of human activity and the degradation of the planet we call home. While many companies remain ignorant about the importance of caring for the natural environment, some make special efforts to coexist with it. Others have made it their mission to preserve the planet as we know it, understanding that our ecosystems are not individually functioning segments but a truly connected whole. Polish company SEEN Technologie sp. z o.o. fights for this universal whole through its business and its measures to protect the beautiful environment we have been given.
It seems like a dream come true: When the founders of Gabriella were about to realise their vision of their own hosiery enterprise, it was both coincidence and luck that were they able to buy used machinery from a closed hosiery production site in Łódź.

Gabriella is market leader in Poland and the company exports its legwear to more than 50 countries worldwide.

The figures are alarming. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) more than 300 million people have depression – and numbers are constantly rising. Clinical depression has surged to significant proportions in recent decades, from little-mentioned misery at the margins of society to a phenomenon that is rarely far from the news. It is widespread in classrooms and boardrooms, inner cities, farms and suburbs – and there seems to be a link between mental ill-health in youngsters and their use of social media. In Warsaw, the Kliniki Allenort helps children and adults with new treatments and therapies to get back to ‘normal’ life.
Property has shown itself to be a solid investment over the last ten years. However, if the trick to maximizing returns is buying at a low point in a rising market, then the options in Europe are already petering out. The overheated London property market appears to have peaked while competition for up-and-coming Berlin is already intense. Into the mix comes Warsaw, which many experts believe has higher prospects for growth than more developed cities in Western Europe. The gem in its crown is Złota 44.
