CORONAVIRUS: the future to come ..

m

Predicting the future is always a great gift to face the difficulties that could trace the path of life. And even if you did not have this clairvoyance, it would still be wise to hypothesize some scenarios to sketch at least a line of foresight.

The world will no longer be the same or at least it will not be for many generations forced, in memory of the Pandemic, to apply those good rules of hygiene or social distancing. But above all, the movements will no longer be the same as before. And flights by plane will be carried out only by business needs or at the limit by indispensable holidays. Not to mention the Cruises, which at the moment those who travel the world can be counted on the palm of a hand. This does not mean that all this will lead to benefits. Just think that ships are the most polluting means of transport that exists, 100 times higher in emissions than airliners. In fact, what is evident is that the seal will begin to breathe with the drastic drop in CO2 emissions and fine dust. The Himalayas are beginning to be seen from India, dolphins appear in the canals of Venice and many animals pour into the city streets, in the absence of the usual tramway. It is unexceptionable that nature has benefited most from this Pandemic, especially if taken into consideration the fact that in recent times the average temperatures had risen to an impressive level (2019 had the hottest October ever), in addition to the fact that 2019 was the year of Greta Tunmberg, the little girl who traveled the world to speak with the powerful of the earth about safeguarding the environment.

The fact remains of how nations will behave in the future once the pandemic is over. The issues are likely to be lower, however, due to the fact that the economic repercussions that will last for years (hopefully not decades) will in any case lead to a decrease in work (and therefore industrial) and social activities.
But our unconscious gestures of social distancing will remain evident. Although in fact, with the end of the virus, social relations will be able to resume, probably also with a certain thrill due to long isolation and long abstinence, our ways will still be influenced by greater freedom, but above all awareness, which will almost certainly be more evident in Latin countries, in which, unlike the Nordic and Anglo-Saxon ones, they have a social culture characterized by warmer gestures and more direct contact.
All the rest is difficult to predict, especially if you think that the geo-political balance will depend on how states will be able to cope with this emergency.

 

20th March: The International Day of Happiness

International-Day-of-Happiness

The International Day of Happiness is celebrated worldwide every year on 20 March, and was originally conceptualized and founded in 2006 by Jayme Illien, CEO of the United Nations New World Order project, to advance happiness as a fundamental human right for all human beings, and happytalism, as new economic system, theory, and philosophy, which achieves the United Nations global goals, and the happiness, well-being, and freedom of all life on earth.

The next international day of happiness is March 20, 2021.

The 2020 International Day of Happiness campaign theme is β€˜Happiness For All, Together’”. To celebrate, UNIDOHappiness, the UN secretariat for the International Day Of Happiness, is calling on all 7.8 billion people and all 206 nations and territories, to take the “Ten Steps to Global Happiness” challenge and call to action. The ten steps to global happiness are “ten easy steps any individual, organization, or country, can take on the international day of happiness, and throughout happiness week, to celebrate the international day of happiness, while also advancing the happiness, wellbeing, and freedom of all life on earth by 2050, when the United Nations forecasts global population to reach 10 billion”. The first step is β€œTell Everyone”, which is designed “spread the word” to increase global awareness about the very existence of the international day of happiness, and the UN’s unanimous recognition of happiness as a human right, as well as happiness as an approach to sustainable economic and human development.

The 2006 origin and inspiration for creating the international day of happiness initially came from founder Jayme Illien’s belief that the happiness, wellbeing, and freedom of all life on earth is the ultimate purpose of every human being, nation, and society. Illien developed his vision for global happiness as humanity’s ultimate purpose, through a life spent on the frontlines saving orphaned and abandoned children fleeing war, genocide, and extreme poverty, and theorizing about solutions to the human condition, and the great challenges facing humankind, after he himself was abandoned as an orphan, and rescued from a roadside in India in 1980, by missionaries of Mother Teresa, who first named him Adam, and sent him to live in America.

20th March: Spring has arrived

vKJMTI
Today spring officially arrives. Yes, because spring does not always arrive on March 20 but sometimes also on the 21st. It is a strange spring, where the whole world is stopped with the only prospect of getting out of the emergency of the coronavirus. This current condition will likely last for other months, so holidays will probably also skip. It is therefore difficult to speak of Spring. In any case, I remember that the spring equinox brings the daytime hours longer than the nighttime hours.
Here in Italy this year there is a crazy heat .. and the climate changes are now impressive. In a few days maybe it will also be the summer heat. The only consolation of this coronavirus is that pollution is decreasing.

During the coronavirus period, states isolate themselves by stitching their borders

The more I look and reflect on Pawel Kuczysnki’s illustrations, the more I say that he is a genius. Sometimes certain designs would be to be interpreted with your own mind and your fantasy because explaining the meaning of things is often supericial and becomes trivial, because it is as if you wanted to enter into the consciousness of the person. In any case, I would like to give some suggestions: this picture best represents the current situation in Europe which, forced to face the coronavirus emergency, closes its borders, often traced by the filaments of their clothes. isolating themselves from the rest and the world and stripping at home ..

The imbeciles on the coronavirus

Coronavirus

By now the infection is affecting the whole world, and almost everyone is starting to understand the seriousness of the problem.

In Italy, coronavirus news has been in national newspapers for almost a month, but people have been joking for too long, and only now some are starting to repent. The thing that bothers me is seeing people’s imbeciles. In Italy there are people who joke all the time.

This is one of the reasons why I go sporadically on social …In northern Italy there are herniated damages and the damage to the image worldwide will affect all companies .. there is little to laugh about but people never change, even in emergencies ..

The elderly, who are the most at risk, would be able to cough you in the face, living in the doubt of being positive …

Murder in Hollywood: Therapist Amie Harwick killed

amie harwick's

Amie Harwick, the therapist who appeared in the documentary “Addicted to sexting”, was killed in her Los Angeles home. Dr Harwick, one of Hollywood’s best-known sexologists and couple counselors, was found by police outside the entrance to her home in Hollywood Hills.

The agents were called by his roommate, who heard fierce cries coming from Amie’s room. Amie Harwick: the Hollywood therapist died When the police arrived on the scene, they found Harwick’s body crashed to the ground: the therapist threw herself from the balcony of her apartment, located on the third floor, to escape her assailant. The tenant managed to escape because she fled ahead of time: when she arrived at the neighbors’ house, she called the local police station. Amie was rushed to a hospital in the area, where, however, she arrived already dead from her injuries.

The first investigations revealed possible evidence of a scuffle already on the first floor of the building: the doctor would have been forced to enter her home by force. Amie Harwick: Drew Carey is ex-husband Harwick, ex-wife of television host Drew Carey (famous in the United States for being the symbol of the quiz The Price is Right, the original format of Ok, the price is right!), He had reached the notoriety in the world of television thanks to the documentary Dipendenti dal sexting, a film by Joseph Tosconi in which various personalities from very different fields recount this phenomenon, which is on the increase thanks to the internet and apps.

LAPD investigators already have a suspect in this crime: detectives have arrested Gareth Pursehouse at his home in Playa del Rey on charges of murder. Pursehouse and Harwick have been dating for some time and have recently split up. Police learned that Amie had expressed concern about her attitudes and had requested a restraining order. However, the measure had expired and the two had seen each other in recent weeks.

On 17th February 1600 Giovanni Bruno died at the stake

unnamed

Giordano Bruno, famous philosopher who went down in history for being killed at the stake by the inquisition of the papal state, died on February 17, 1600.
The hashtag #giordanobruno is obviously in trend today.
Although the church apologized to Pope Wojtyla in 2000, he never recognized his writings compatible with the Catholic Church.

Giordano Bruno was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, cosmological theorist, and Hermetic occultist. He is known for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then-novel Copernican model. He proposed that the stars were distant suns surrounded by their own planets, and he raised the possibility that these planets might foster life of their own, a philosophical position known as cosmic pluralism. He also insisted that the universe is infinite and could have no “centre”.

Starting in 1593, Bruno was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition on charges of denial of several core Catholic doctrines, including eternal damnation, the Trinity, the divinity of Christ, the virginity of Mary, and transubstantiation. Bruno’s pantheism was also a matter of grave concern, as was his teaching of the transmigration of the soul/reincarnation. The Inquisition found him guilty, and he was burned at the stake in Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori in 1600. After his death, he gained considerable fame, being particularly celebrated by 19th- and early 20th-century commentators who regarded him as a martyr for science, although historians agree that his heresy trial was not a response to his astronomical views but rather a response to his philosophical and religious views. Bruno’s case is still considered a landmark in the history of free thought and the emerging sciences.

In addition to cosmology, Bruno also wrote extensively on the art of memory, a loosely organised group of mnemonic techniques and principles. Historian Frances Yates argues that Bruno was deeply influenced by Arab astrology (particularly the philosophy of Averroes), Neoplatonism, Renaissance Hermeticism, and Genesis-like legends surrounding the Egyptian god Thoth. Other studies of Bruno have focused on his qualitative approach to mathematics and his application of the spatial concepts of geometry to language.

Today is the world day radio

Every year, February 13 is the World Radio Day.

World Radio Day, promoted by UNESCO, serves to remind the importance of the radio instrument in celebrating humanity in all its diversity. And that, despite the technological progress and the advent of the web, it remains the most widespread media globally.

World Radio Day 2020 will be held on Thursday 13 February around the theme of “Radio and diversity.” UNESCO and UN calls on radio stations to uphold diversity, both in their newsroom and on the airwaves.

This edition of this year of World Radio Day is divided into three main sub-themes:

Advocating for pluralism in radio, including a mix of public, private and community broadcasters;
Encouraging representation in the newsroom, with teams representing diverse society groups;
Promoting a diversity of editorial content and programme types reflecting the variety of the audiences.
In the world, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard. Radio stations should serve diverse communities, offering a wide variety of programs, viewpoints and content, and reflect the diversity of audiences in their organizations and operations. Technological advances are also participating to diversity the radio sector: DAB+, DRM, IP streaming.

Incredible disqualification of Morgan-Bugo at the sanremo festival [2020]

Bugo-e-Morgan-690x362

Sanremo is over and although there is a winner, the spotlight is on elsewhere. In the penultimate episode of the Saremo festival, an episode never looked after in history happened. During the performance of the Morgan-Bugo duo there were quarrels that led Bugo to leave the stage during the singing, in front of millions of viewers.

No one really knows what happened between the two artists. The sure thing is that Morgan while singing the song (written by himself) has changed the words of the text insulting his friend (probably now ex) and duo companion. Bugo’s reaction was immediate and he left the stage.

Obviously all this implied the disqualification of the duo. And although it is not the first time that a disqualification takes place at the Sanremo festival, it is the first time that it occurs due to abandonment of the stage.

Morgan’s unusual offense would arise from the fact that the previous day, in the cover performances, Bugo made a bad performance. But it would also seem that Morgan, for some of his claims, has only tried the song once, changing the scores of the music, thus leaving Bugo in difficulty.

However, beyond this singular episode, the festival has met with great success and success.

However, although I read some news every time, I avoided seeing the festival … for various reasons.

Today is World Nutella Day

nutella

Today is World Nutella Day, probably the most famous chocolate cream in the world.

Although today we should praise this extraordinary confectionery product, I will try to elucidate a lot of things for and against nutella.

Ferrero, the company that produces Nutella is one of the profitable companies in Italy. Most people know Nutella, but the company produces many other products: from snacks to chocolates, to chocolate eggs.

Undoubtedly Nutella is the best product (as a flavor) and perhaps also the one that lends itself best to home use.

It must be said, however, that Nutella, unlike other products, has not yet eliminated palm oil, which has now been shown to be an unhealthy harmful food.

Nutella has also recently been criticized by the leader of the Northern League party, Matteo Salvini, who said that the delicious cream is made with hazelnuts produced in Turkey, thus opposing Italian economic interests.

The reputation of Nutella is such that many products try to imitate it in its flavor. In addition, many home-made desserts are made with nutella which, in addition to lending itself well to home-made desserts, saves you the time to prepare the chocolate cream.
