Today among the most popular trends and hashtags (of twitter) is the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

It remains difficult for me to think that the formula1 is one of the most viewed sports at international level, despite the victory of the Maranello team.

The #singaporeGP trand is indeed present in some of European countries, the United States and even Japan! Twitter almost always gives an image of the world trends! Except instead of those Asian rapper trand …

It is a pity that the Ferrari has “woken up” only now that the world championship is almost closed. Although in fact the world championship is still open with mathematical numbers, The probability that the Ferrari will win is a miracle.

I very much hope that the Mercedes domination is over because in the last few years I have followed Formula 1 a little. I don’t know how the rest of the world public reacted to Hamilton’s domination, but surely without balance the sport is ugly and boring.

According to a survey two years ago, Ferrari was the most popular team: Ferrari 31.9%,
Mercedes 16.2%, McLaren 15.8%, Red Bull Racing 14.1%, Williams 5%. Probably even if the popularity of Mercedes has increased with the last two world championships won, the Ferrari always remains the most popular.

Charles Leclerc 21 years

With the latest victories, Charles Leclerc promises well in the future as a champion of Ferrari and Formula 1. The 21-year-old Monegasque has a whole future ahead of him. Undoubtedly, the Ferrari has made a good choice to take a young driver and support him with a world champion like Vettel.

The clear proof of the talent of the Monegasque pilot is the overtaking done against Gasly at the Silverstone Grand Prix on July 14, 2019.

Here is the link of the splendid overtaking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=868k7_0NFAc

But the merit is not only of Leclerc because this year the roles of Ferrari managers have been renewed.

 

 

The next grand prix will take place in Russia on September 29th!

Ferrari can only hope to win the constructors ‘championship because it is achievable and not an impossible mission like the drivers’ championship.

Sunday
The day of rest

Summer is behind us now.

Today is the last day of summer and tomorrow officially enters the autumn with the equinox.

Lying on the sofa or in the armchair, walking around the city, the mind seeks relief from the thought of starting the week again.

The day we would like had no time and stopped in the afternoon when we are in front of the TV. Think back to Saturday, the day that has the most perspective, thanks especially to Sunday.

I try to live thinking it’s always Saturday or Sunday. The day of rest is often sad, thinking that each time the week begins with the working deadlines. Then I change the agenda: the dates remain the same but I change the days … no more Monday, Tuesday …

LYRICS

You, you take all of the li-li-light away
But, but then you give me fireworks
I, I think of leaving ni-ni-night and day
But, but then you always find the words
You’re contagious, baby
Love when you love me, hate me
The way you rock, rock, rock my body lately
You set the rain on fire
I wish the lows were higher
Wish I could stop, stop, stop to save me
Oh, I wanna stay, wanna walk out the door
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
You dry my tears and make it pour
You show me love and give me war
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
I, I always want to run, run, run away
But, but then I’ll crawl into your arms
It, it’s like we’re starting drama every day
But, but you know that’s my favorite part
You’re contagious, baby
Love when you love me, hate me
The way you rock, rock, rock my body lately
You set the rain on fire
I wish the lows were higher
Wish I could stop, stop, stop to save me
Oh, I wanna stay, wanna walk out the door
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
You dry my tears and make it pour
You show me love and give me war
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
Torn from the pages out of our book
A beautiful tragedy
I’m torn in between heaven and hell
‘Cause baby when I’m with you
I just don’t know where I’d rather be
Oh, I wanna stay, wanna walk out the door
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn
You dry my tears and make it pour
You show me love and give me war
I can’t get enough, can’t take anymore
Oh no, right now baby I’m torn

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO

Tu, porti via tutta la luce
Ma, ma poi mi dai i fuochi d’artificio
Io penso di andarmene giorno e notte
Ma, ma poi trovi sempre le parole

Sei contagioso, piccolo
Ami quando mi ami, mi odi
Il modo in cui scuoti, scuoti il mio corpo ultimamente
Hai dato fuoco alla pioggia
Vorrei che i minimi fossero più alti
Vorrei potermi fermare, fermarmi, fermarmi per salvarmi

Oh, voglio restare, voglio uscire dalla porta
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono combattuta
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono distrutta
Mi asciughi le lacrime e le fai colare
Mi fai vedere l’amore e mi dai la guerra
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono lacerata

Io, ho sempre voglia di correre, correre, scappare
Ma, ma poi mi trascino tra le tue braccia
È come se iniziassimo il dramma ogni giorno
Ma, ma sai che è la mia parte preferita

Sei contagioso, piccolo
Ami quando mi ami, mi odi
Il modo in cui scuoti, scuoti il mio corpo ultimamente
Hai dato fuoco alla pioggia
Vorrei che i minimi fossero più alti
Vorrei potermi fermare, fermarmi, fermarmi per salvarmi

Oh, voglio restare, voglio uscire dalla porta
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono combattuta
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono distrutta
Mi asciughi le lacrime e le fai colare
Mi fai vedere l’amore e mi dai la guerra
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono lacerata

(Combattuta, piccolo sono combattuta, lacerata)
(Lacerata, lacerata, piccolo sono lacerata, lacerata)

Strappata dalle pagine del nostro libro
Una bellissima tragedia
Sono divisa tra il paradiso e l’inferno
Perché piccola quando sono con te
Solo non so dove preferirei essere!

Oh, voglio restare, voglio uscire dalla porta
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono combattuta
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono distrutta
Mi asciughi le lacrime e le fai colare
Mi fai vedere l’amore e mi dai la guerra
Non ne ho mai abbastanza, non ne posso più
Oh no, in questo momento baby sono lacerata

 

12 September: Mary’s Name-Day

mary

The Feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an optional memorial celebrated in the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church on 12 September. It has been a universal Roman Rite feast since 1684, when Pope Innocent XI included it in the General Roman Calendar to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. It was removed from the Church calendar in the liturgical reform following Vatican II but restored by Pope John Paul II in 2002, along with the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus.

In Hebrew, the name Mary is “Miryam”. In Aramaic the language spoken in her own time, the form of the name was “Mariam”. Based on the root “merur”, the name signifies “bitterness”. This is reflected in the words of Naomi, who, after losing a husband and two sons lamented, ” “Do not call me Naomi (‘Sweet’). Call me Mara (‘Bitter’), for the Almighty has made my life very bitter.”

Meanings ascribed to Mary’s name by the early Christian writers and perpetuated by the Greek Fathers include: “Bitter Sea,” “Myrrh of the Sea”, “The Enlightened One,” “The Light Giver,” and especially “Star of the Sea.” Stella Maris was by far the favored interpretation. Jerome suggested the name meant “Lady”, based on the Aramaic “mar” meaning “Lord”.

The shadows of twin towers

twin
I was only 15 when the tragedy of the collapse of the twin towers happened. An event that shook everyone. These were the years when the Internet was spreading, the years when PC technology evolved and mobile phones were just accessories to call. A few years after 2001, especially thanks to the advent of the Internet, many conspiracy theories will come out. A theme that America has accustomed us to, especially with the moon-landing.
Few ruins remain of the disaster, but many shadows …

The Pope’s journey to Africa – Two reflections on his pontificate

In these days the Pope is traveling to Africa.
The program includes visits to three countries: Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius. In addition, the Pope will meet young people, authorities and clergy but also AIDS patients and survivors of epidemics. Only another pope had been in Africa: Pope John Paul II in May 1989.

Pope Francis’ journey will last 7 days: from 4 to 10 September!

 

Pontificate

The pontificate of Pope Francis lives all in all with conflicting opinions, although mainly favorable, probably due to his warmer charisma than his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.

The problem of immigration, which is at the center of politics due to the serious problems of hospitality that Italy has to face every day, puts the pontificate of Pope Francis in serious difficulty, which since the beginning has always supported maximum acceptance without if and without but. A philosophy that many people certainly don’t like.

Beyond the issue of immigration, there is always the problem of pedophilia, which in spite of everything in recent years has spoken little about it, even if the subject is always alive among the people.
I must say that despite the many problems that exist in Italy, Pope Francis has been able to capture the sympathy of the people, confirming the greatness (and at the same time the humility) of his name more in words than in deeds.

The image of the Pope in Italy is completely different from the one he has abroad. It is obvious that in the Latin American countries the popularity of the Pope is out of the question and when there is a journey the Pope gathers millions of faithful.
In Anglo-Saxon countries instead. the Pope’s popularity is minor. Moreover, most of the scandals or investigations into pedophilia come from the Anglo-Saxon countries.

Although the Pope has brought considerable innovation and openness to the church, some reforms have been harshly criticized. For example, changing – albeit slightly – the prayer of the Our Father, was for many disconcerting.

Surely the opening to the Gay or some sex taboos has benefited the church, but probably not enough. The pontificate of Pope John Paul II seems very far away.

Surely the opening to the Gay or some sex taboos has benefited the church, but probably not enough. The pontificate of Pope John Paul II seems very far away. As a tradition, the church always places itself as a stronghold before social and world evolution, to take the distance from possible drifts.

The humanity of Pope Francis is certainly that of having often come into contact with people. Many will always remember the phone calls he made at the homes of the people, who answered almost incredulously.
Judging a pontificate is very difficult. Each era has its socio-political-economic context.

In addition to the problems mentioned above, there are the perennial problems of the thousands of property units owned by the Vatican, which are largely exempt from taxes, and the remaining Vatican has outstanding debts.

 

The new Italian government formed after the crisis

After the government crisis in which Italian Prime Minister Conte resigned, a new government was formed. The M5S, that in the elections of March 4 2019 was the most voted party (35%) but did not reach an absolute majority in order to govern alone, made an alliance with the Democratic party.

For many it was a political betrayal because until a few days before the M5S ruled with the right (Lega). Also for years the M5S and the PD have been insulted, especially after the Bibbiano scandals, which revealed the Democratic Party politicians in criminal cases concerning children.

The truth is that both the M5S and the PD wanted to avoid the elections because the polls gave both parties a sharp decline in favor of the Lega that have double the consensus: from 18% to 36%.

It is difficult to think that this government can last for all legislation because the parties that have joined together have very few things in common. Among the political issues of confrontation, there will almost certainly be immigration, which has been gripping the whole country for decades.

Matteo Salvini, leader of the League, was one of the few in fact to fight against illegal immigration that happens with the boats that land in the ports of the Italian coasts. This policy has led Salvini to have more enemies than friends in Italy and in Europe, where strangely a solidarity policy applies. Italy is objectively the country most penalized in illegal immigration and every year it suffers tens of thousands of landings of irregular migrants.

Despite the fact that Germany is the most hospitable to migrants, Italy is the country that hosts the most irregular immigrants.
In Germany there are precise rules and crossing German borders without documents there are very severe penalties.

Giuseppe Conte was again chosen for the new government, despite the disagreement of some members of the Left (Democratic Party). In fact, Giuseppe Conte held a diplomatic relationship with the rest of Europe during the first year of government (with the League), earning the respect of the EU and also of US President Donald Trump, who recently has expressed sympathy for him in a tweet, wishing him to lead the country.

The Italian markets and exchanges reacted quite well, except for a few days when it was thought that the agreement between the PD and M5S was not successful. Particularly when in a day of consultations among the various parties, Luigi Di Maio, leader of the M5S, raised the tone dictating the conditions of the agreement and making to fear a lacked agreement.

Regarding the government agreement, all members of the five-star movement through the Rousseau platform also expressed their opinion. Voting was definitely in favor of the agreement with 79%. The vote was however criticized by the right-wing parties, including the Lega, because they believe it is unfair that 70000 members of the M5S can decide for millions of Italians.

Although the agreement made with the PD remained the M5S as a traitor to the values ​​of coherence and position, uniting both with the right and then with the left in the same legislature reinforces that it was a workhorse of the movement: not to be right and left but go only against the system. Many dislike the agreement because the movement was born as a party for the protest vote against the corruption of caste and politics.

Early voting was very difficult to do because a government’s 1-year duration is very short, and indeed even the President of the Republic wanted the agreement between the left and the M5S, provided, however, that the parties presented political guidelines to be implemented together.

Best way to Study

study

When the character is not yet modeled, studying is never easy! During the high school years it remains difficult to study for anyone, although some have more inclination.

With my years of experience, including university, I can give you some advice!

In high schools almost always the desire to study is lower than that of university years, both because one is a child and because one is forced to study.

The distractions of the study or the factors that can influence our listlessness can be divided into three categories: moral ones (which I will skip here as they are the most difficult to treat), mental ones and physical ones.

The moral factors are due to the sum of capacities, motivations and distractions.

Capabilities are generally refined over time so that you cannot hope to learn the concepts quickly but you have to work on motivations and avoid distractions. Distractions are a very important factor because some help others make our condition worse. Music, for example, often helps us because it helps us to study, if it is not a mnemonic study, in which it is necessary to speak and repeat aloud.
Other distractions like videogames instead are a total perdition because we start with the intent to stay only a few hours in front of the display and then we always postpone the study time. The television instead deceives us that it is always our friend deluding us that it can allow us to study with it when in reality it is not so.The external distractions instead like going out or practicing hobbies must be managed with extreme precision because often they bring us tiredness and they don’t allow us anymore to study as we would like. Needless to say, in fact, that with fatigue it is difficult to study even with the greatest motivations and abilities.

Regarding physical factors, I can say that a healthy body can certainly make more. Sometimes it is even possible to take energizing drinks to keep us spirited up, but not often!
