Today is May 1st, labor day in many countries around the world. Difficult to talk on this day when many workers risk their work due to the crisis for the Coronavirus. I will just hope that every state takes the right steps to deal with the epidemic.

 

Real Madrid wins the match (the clasico) against Barça

real

Vince, Real Madrid, who knocks out Barcelona and takes Clasico and primacy of La Liga. At the Bernabeu, under the eyes of the great ex Cristiano Ronaldo, the Merengues make the three points their own thanks to the goals of Vinicius, deployed on the left in the trident chosen by Zidane, who collects a Kroos filter, enters the penalty area and, thanks to a deviation of Piqué, hole a, so far, unsurpassed Ter Stegen, and, surprisingly, Mariano Diaz. Little, very little Barcelona, ​​with Leo Messi who, observed by the old rival sitting in the stands, is almost never seen, even making the last punishment wrong to put into the opponent’s area.

In the second half I blaugrana can be glimpsed with Griezmann in the first half and, above all, in the final of the first 45 minutes, but the game has always been in the hands of Real Madrid: worse, more aggressive, physically fresher, with a super Carvajal on the shields. Ter Stegen’s performance was applauded, as long as he can keep his feet up. Mariano Diaz’s entry onto the pitch was crazy: on his championship debut, he entered the 92nd and definitively closed the match. He had only played in the Super Cup.

 

1st March:

We hope that this month is better than February and January which have brought many problems, mainly Coronavirus, which in Italy has now infected more than a thousand people, paralyzing the country and leading to great economic losses. March is called crazy. March 8 will be women’s day and March 19 Father’s day. The Formula 1 championship will begin on Sunday 15th and the spring equinox on the 20th. In addition, the 29th of March will change to summer time.

1°March: ♪ ♬ LUCIO DALLA – Domani

On March 1st 8 years ago (2012) Lucio Dalla disappeared, one of the greatest singers of Italian music. He left unforgettable songs such as ‘Caruso’, a mix of pop and opera, very well known abroad. Here I will put one of my favorite songs ‘Domani’ (tomorrow) .. at minute 1.41 the voice explodes in one of the most beautiful treble that I’ve ever heard ..

 

LYRIC

Dovevo essere un cretino come te
Per stare a bocca aperta ad ascoltarti
Parlare tutto il giorno malissimo di te
(E la notte) uscire fuori per cercarti
Lo so perché tu sei dentro di me
E so che tu sei più forte di me
Perché ci vuole solo un cretino come me
Per stare ancora qui a telefonarti
E a farsi fare tutto il male che mi fai
Solo perché mi piace perdonarti
Perché tu sei, tu sei dentro di me
E poi tu sei molto più forte di me
È la verità
Ma come si fa
Dove saremo io e te
Domani, domani
Saremo ancora così lontani
Ci annuseremo da lontano come i cani, i cani
Proprio come due bambini io e te
Oh oh io e te
Oh oh io e te
Va bene allora adesso dimmi cosa fai
Potremmo fare in modo di incontrarci
Basta solo che mi dici stasera dove vai
Che ci vediamo, chissà se hai il coraggio di guardarmi
Perché, io so che sai
Che son dentro di te, e oh
Vedrai, son più forte di te
È la verità
Ed ecco come si fa
Ecco cosa saremo io e te
Domani, domani
Saremo nuvole nel cielo
Così almeno non saremo più lontani, lontani
E quando il vento lo vorrà ci incontreremo
Ci troveremo
Io e te domani
Io e te domani
Io e te domani

Welcome December

How many of you will spend Christmas away from your family? Many of you will spend it with your relatives. Very few instead away from home. The saying says: “At Christmas with your (parents) and at Easter with the people you want”.

When December starts the countdown for Christmas and New Year’s event starts automatically.

The days are short and the sky darkens early. The cold forces us to wear sweaters and coats, and when we walk around the shops, the windows are gorgeous.

I have always wanted to spend a Christmas away from home, and therefore far from everything that characterizes the Christmas holidays: money, gifts, consumerism, food etc …

Christmas is increasingly synonymous with consumerism but I don’t know if it is synonymous with happiness. I admire those people who volunteer on Christmas and later, delivering gifts on the streets or assisting Needy Children.

1st December: World AIDS Day

“Let us give publicity to HIV-AIDS and not hide it, because the only way to make it appear like a normal illness, like TB, like cancer, is always to come out and to say somebody has died because of HIV,” Mr. Mandela said that morning. “And people will stop regarding it as something extraordinary.” NELSON MANDELA

This year’s slogan of the UNAIDS World AIDS Day is “Community makes the difference”: a celebration of the communities with which activism and volunteering have made a concrete contribution to the cause, assisting HIV-positive people and fighting for assistance dignified health care, to raise awareness of HIV and prevent new infections.

Without organized communities and associations, 24 million people could not count today on insured medical care and the availability of antiretroviral drugs. About 6% of all HIV funding, according to UNAIDS, goes to communities that promote human rights, which challenge discrimination, criminalization and stigma

World AIDS Day, designated on 1 December every year since 1988, is an international day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations, and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.

As of 2017, AIDS has killed between 28.9 million and 41.5 million people worldwide, and an estimated 36.7 million people are living with HIV, making it one of the most important global public health issues in recorded history. Thanks to recent improved access to antiretroviral treatment in many regions of the world, the death rate from AIDS epidemic has decreased since its peak in 2005 (1 million in 2016, compared to 1.9 million in 2005).

1 November – All Saints Day: history of name-day

allsaintsday

On November 1st, as always, we celebrate the feast of all saints. This day, introduced by Pope Gregory IV, also allows us to celebrate the name day to those who have an adespota name, that is, they have a name that does not appear on the calendar with any Saint.

The name day, as well as the birthday, is celebrated in most countries. But today this tradition has been lost a bit and so often only the birthday is celebrated.

The custom of celebrating the name day derives from the fact that in ancient times, especially in the Middle Ages, when there was still no registry office, people only remembered the dates of the saints with whom they celebrated people.

Today the name day is celebrated mainly in the south and in Latin countries. In northern Italy and in other countries this custom has been lost.

The Trump administration postpones duties on Chinese products in mid-December

trump-ansa

The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.

Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.

The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.
