The current situation (war) with Iran

What will happen in the next few days or months? This is the question that everyone is asking, especially after the reaction of the Asian markets following the American raid.

Because a possible war could destabilize world markets (and stock exchanges) by generating economic crises. The price of gold and oil have already gone up. And gold has reached its listing record since 2013.

Trump gave his word that as long as he is president of the United States, Iran will never have a nuclear weapon. This is in fact the reason for the current conflict.
General Soleimani killed by the drone was planning nuclear weapons as well as possible conflicts with other countries.

The united states are supported by many countries. Israel has said it will support Trump’s action as he considers Soleimani’s work bankrupt, having killed hundreds of innocents.

Instead, France has declared that it will not withdraw troops drom Iraq, where they currently reside, and where they explicitly support the United States.

It is always difficult to judge the action of the United States, which are often the judgments of the diplomatic balances of the world, but also and above all of peace in the world. Many believe that this conflict was triggered to overshadow the judicial problems of President Trump, who in recent weeks has suffered numerous accusations and impeachment for having illegally influenced Ukraine in the voting.

Others believe that the conflict was triggered also by economic interests, mainly due to that of oil. The truth is that the United States is always responsible for the balance of the world, but often by abusing its power, it chooses the timing and methods most suited to them.

 

The Pacience of Pope Francis: slaps a faithful!

pope
During the year-end mass (31 December 2019), Pope Francis’ patience was put to the test. While Bergoglio was walking through the crowd, an oriental lady tugged on the Pope’s hand, more than generally happens when a faithful wants to touch and greet the Pope.

The Pope reacted abruptly, as has never been seen, by slapping the hands of the faithful. However the day after Bergoglio apologized for losing patience in an episode that happened the previous day, not specifying in detail what happened.

An episode that certainly does not overshadow the image of the pope, on the contrary, it even more emphasizes the eccentric character of the pontiff, who has sparked millions of comments on the network and on social media.

The New year in the world

2020

The New Year is celebrated all over the world, or rather all over the world that has the Gregorian calendar, that is mainly the Christian one. For example, in some eastern countries such as China, New Year is celebrated on 25th January. The Jews instead celebrate the New Year generally in September.
The Islamic New Year is celebrated on the first day of the month of Muharram and can correspond to any period of the Gregorian year, because the lunar year used in the Islamic calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than the calendar year of the Gregorian calendar, so that an Islamic date “moves” back, compared to the Gregorian calendar, by about a month every three years.

However, the New Year on the Gregorian calendar is celebrated with fireworks all over the world, although fireworks are a delicate theme every year, because there are always accidents. Due to the time zone, the New Year begins earlier in some countries. The first to celebrate will be the inhabitants of Kiritimati instead the last will be those of the American Samoe Islands.

Using cell phones since the 2000s, I can compare the difference with the present day. At one time during midnight the lines were clogged and it was difficult even to send a simple text message. Today, however, the telephone lines hold up well because everyone constantly uses the internet.

Today is a public holiday, and most countries celebrate the motherhood of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Despite this, one of the things that surprised me is that England is one of the few countries where the football matches takes place in New Year. Infact, The Brighton-Chelsea match was played today.

Today is the 30th birthday of the Simpson

family30thbirthaysimpson
Today the Simpsons make the 30th year of their birth. On December 17th the Simpsons made their US debut in half-hour episodes in prime time on the FOX network. Today in many channels of various nations have been transmitted the first historical episodes of the Simpsons . A cartoon that has marked an era and continues to certainly influence current generations that never tire of new episodes.
The primordial simpsons, those of the 90s, were very rough, although they still had that original idea of โ€‹โ€‹reflecting the typical American family..

I began to see the simpsons from when I was a child. In Italy in the early 1990s, the Simpsons were not yet known and known as they were today. Today it is certainly one of the most famous cartoons in the world. I also believe that there are also many adults watching them

The new Top Gun trailer has been released.

I believe that Top Gun 2 will be the film of the year 2020 but also one of the colossal (or historical films) of the ’20s. Although I was born in the second half of the 80s, I manged to still enjoy the legacy of this film, which has left an indelible memory of the 80s in everyone’s memory. It is impressive to think that this film launched the Reyban culture – the brand of sunglasses – and contributed to the global success of actor Tom Cruise.

Although this film will not match the success of its predecessor – at least in mass culture – it will be a great success and a great confirmation, especially for those who love the action genre.

Undoubtedly the film top gun follows the nature of many Americans in military or patriotic fanaticism. But in any case, the film still leaves a romantic imprint like few films have ever made in history. Another interesting thing is the music and the soundtrack that will accompany the scenes in the film. TopGun is unforgettable especially for its soundtrack, in particular for the song “Take my breath away” of Berlin. I don’t think there will be a hit of the same caliber but I still hope in the beauty of the music.

Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th and for the Anglo-Saxon world it is a day of misfortune. For the Latin American villages, on the other hand, it is only half or perhaps not at all. In fact, in Italy as in other European countries, the unlucky number is 17, which brings good luck to the British and the Americans. If you do not believe in misfortune, try at least not to challenge fate and walk with calm prudence.

Charlie Brown Christmas

Among the trends of today on google searches there is “Charlie Brown Christmas”.

I remind you that this year the transmissions of the new episodes of the peanuts have begun, which are broadcast on Apple TV.

I remember when I watched peanuts on TV, simple and often silent cartoons, with a profound and also very interpretative meaning.

 

 

 

The Black Friday of the President TRUMP

Peter Griffin (Griffin Family Cartoon) in President Donald TRUMP

What do you think President Trump does on black Friday? He will be almost indifferent to the people who crowd in to buy gifts and things on offer.

Donald Trump’s wealth is almost unimaginable. In recent days, on the allegations that they claimed falsifications in tax returns, he stated that he is richer than people may believe, after criticizing the New York prosecutor’s attempt to acquire “all the financial transactions I have done” .
Donald Trump announced that he will make the tax return known before the election. Like any other person, he will make Christmas presents, but surely he will not rush the day of black friday to shop, or at least not to do them all.

The president of the united states will have so many people to give gifts to, but surely an entrepreneurial man like himself often lives in a solitude of the successful man.

In fact, many people have claimed that in the years when TRUMP climbed the success it was very cold: “How much do you have to be an asshole to be a successful person?”

IfWomenWereMenForADay

Today, among the twitter trends there is: “If Women Were Men For A Day”.

Someone, on Thanksgiving Day, wanted to indulge in hunting this somewhat extravagant hashtag. There would be much to say if a woman was a man for a day. He (she) would not fall into gossip, or he would not speak in the ambiguous and somewhat bifurcated way that often characterizes a woman. It would be paranoid and save a couple of hours a day for facial makeup.

I think it is difficult for a woman to become temperamentally a man, while the opposite would be more realistic. The character of a woman, although it may become tomboy, never became completely man because a woman’s character is an indelible mark, difficult to remove or erase.ย  The woman hardly ever gives up her femininity, except in some rare cases where she wants to save herself from a system that would kill her.

๐ŸŽƒ Halloween 2019

PIC Gabriele Romano – Halloween 2019

While in the Anglo-Saxon world, halloween is celebrated and the pumpkins appear everywhere in the Latin Catholic world, this custom is imitated wearing costumes. I am a little over 30 years old and I remember that in Italy people began to celebrate this event at the beginning of the 2000s, when TV – with American films and cartoons – brought the trick or treat event to people’s homes. Cartoons have been the main influence.

Cartoons (like the simpson) were the main factors that influenced the Catholic world. It is no coincidence that three episodes dedicated to the Simpsons were broadcast on the mediaset ITALIA1 channel.

Today, however, there are many who contest the Anglo-Saxon custom by calling it opposite to the Christian-Catholic culture as well as opposed to the national tradition. However, I believe that with the passing of the years the aversion towards Halloween will diminish, giving it the main party of the disguise. In the last decade in fact the carnival has lost a lot of popularity, especially in the adult public.
