Our chirps

How important is our smartphone for us? Definitely a lot. But if used with care it can be our best friend, if used with abuse, thinking that it can solve our problems, it becomes our worst confidant. At other times, the smartphone was replaced by a notebook or a book, which in other eras could completely influence a person’s ideas and character. Instead in the digital age, everyone counts to the extent of the insignificant infinitesimal.

Our age is characterized by the chaos and the bombardment of the news, which between social media and other web news, takes us away from reality. So that the book remains the only instrument with whom to remain connected with our fantasy, that is, our soul that is also our reality which we change with our dreams.
If we precede the richness of books and culture, only the birds will benefit, as they have remained the only ones still to hold silence as a divine song.

The books are supported by the dreams of those who wrote them and support those who believe in dreams.

Our gifts

The Christmas season is one of the periods when you buy more things. Gifts are one of the undeniable ways to present yourself as guests in the homes of friends and relatives.
Often a gift, even if of little value, can represent a lot, even the symbol of a friendship. Among adults, it is often a formality. But how many Chinese products do we buy? Surely many. And although we don’t buy them directly from the Chinese store, the origin of most of the products, above all the technological ones, is Chinese. It’s funny to think how many of the things we use have been produced in China: it’s like thinking that every Chinese worker gives us a gift when we find a low-cost product.

TINDER

tinder_51115

Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app and Web application most often used as a dating service, that allows users to use a swiping motion to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties like each other (a β€œmatch”).

Information available to users is based on pictures, a short biography, and, optionally, a linked Instagram, Facebook or Spotify account. Tinder originally required access to a Facebook account of the user of Tinder but, as of August 2019, Tinder allows users to register using a telephone number and without access to a Facebook account.

CHANNELS

channels_124462

Channels is a simple way to create posts about any topic (something for sale, event, trip, something funny, rant, etc) which is then automatically geo-tagged with your location or any location you choose on the map. Once its created, users can scroll around the map and/or perform tag & category based search to find channels they’re interested in like yours, subscribe to that channel, and immediately group chat with you and all other subscribed users. Channels are therefore just location
based posts with an embedded anonymous group chat. Most social apps require email, usernames, passwords and sometimes other information. This app is meant to be as anonymous as possible, so all we ask is for you to set a username, if and only if, you wish to chat with others or subscribe.
Channels was created to be simple and anonymous so we have no menus or ads or hidden ways to make money; just 3 screens that you can swipe between.

Chatroulette is an online chat website that pairs random users for webcam-based conversations. Visitors to the website begin an online chat (text, audio, and video) with another visitor. At any point, either user may leave the current chat by initiating another random connection.According to New York Times, the site is intensely addictive. In February 2010, a few months after the website was created, about 35,000 people were on Chatroulette at any given time. Around the beginning of March, Ternovskiy estimated the site to have around 1.5 million users. According to a survey carried out by RJMetrics, about one in eight spins on Chatroulette yielded “R-rated” content. Parody shows such as The Daily Show and South Park have lampooned this aspect of the service, and nudity has become an established part of the site’s notoriety.

Welcome December

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.

We are vampires for our needs: recharges

wampirrechargepawelkuczysnki

We are increasingly dependent on smartphones. Now when our cell phone is empty we go into a panic, worried about finding a way to recharge our cell phone. Although today there are power banks, which allow us to recharge our device wherever we are, it always happens sometimes that we are lacking in something that loads our mobile phone.

Especially when we are traveling and we need the navigator, we panic because we have to find a place where there is someone who does us the favor of reacharging our smartphone. But it can also happen while we talk on the phone or while we are consulting some things on the web. Unfortunately, although technology has made giant strides, the many features of the mobile phone quickly discharge the battery. The 3-4 day battery life of old phones is only a distant memory.

The mobile phone is an integral part of every moment of our life. And strange to think that before we lived without the ability to shoot at any time. In the past Probably the photos that were available had a more affective value because they represented a special moment. But today it seems that every day is the good one to live a magical experience and we end up living in the monotony and in the illusion that every day everything is possible.

Often we are vampires also in a figurative sense: we need things that we really don’t need. Often recalling memories only with photographic memory helps us to be even more detached towards negative things and attached to positive ones. Binding to an accessory almost always makes us feel powerless from a spiritual point of view.

Goodbye November [2019]

goodbyenovember-peanutssnoopy
illustration of Schulz [Peanuts]
November is over, and it’s about to begin December. What is the saddest month of the year? Probably for many it is November. Instead December and January are months of holidays and February is a month of preparation for the spring of 21st March.

In November the leaves of the trees are red, the cold becomes more intense and people stuff themselves with coats. In our mind, the idea that the current year is coming to an end comes into our mind.

In the United States in November there is a Thanksgiving Day, which is considered a very important party. Instead in the other western countries there is the party of November 1 (all saints days) which however is considered a sad recurrence because it is used as commemoration of the dead, that happens just the following day.

Although November is for many the excellence month of autumn, many consider it as a month of reconciliation with the nature. The Danish Philosopher Kierekegaard wrote:

“In autumn everything reminds us of twilight, – and yet, it seems to me the most beautiful season: he wanted the sky then, when I will live my twilight, that there must be someone who then loves me as I loved the autumn.”

Political situation in Italy [NOV 19]

di-maio-salvini
Luigi di Maio [M5S] and Matteo Salvini [LEGA]

The next elections to be held in Italy are regional ones: in Emilia-Romagna and Calabria in January 2019. Next year there will also be elections in Veneto, Campania, Tuscany, Marche and Liguria in may 2019.

The Five Star Movement, the party that differs most from all the other parties, has decided to participate in the upcoming elections of Emilia and Calabria.

The decision was taken after voting online on the movement subscribers platform. The decision obviously displaced many, because the movement, not having many candidates, and above all being in decline in the polls, could fail.
In any case, the decision has been taken and what the members have decided will be done.

In recent months, especially from the European elections of May 2019, the Italian right is increasing its support, to the detriment of the five-star movement and the Democratic Party, that is, at the expense of parties with more supporters.

There is an environment of anger and hatred in Italy, between those who call themselves anti-fascist and those who believe themselves to be right-wing.

Difficult to explain what politics is in Italy and above all political culture. From the 50s in Italy there has always been an anti-fascist culture, even when the fascimo was non-existent. Whenever we talk about the fight against migrants, because Italy and tortured by illegal immigrants the “anti-fascists” must oppose even when there is no need. Probably the bogeyman of fascism is always in the memory of many, even if in recent years mainly in the memory of those who studied it in books. And this is perhaps the greatest danger for the supporters of the left: that most of those who lived through the war years or the fathers or grandparents of the grandchildren are no longer here.

The current government, with the PD-M5S alliance, although it is going ahead with the budget maneuver and with some reforms, does not seem to have a long life, especially if the right should win in some important regions. The emilia is a region that could act as a balance point because it has always been a region of the left and should win the Lega (right) would be a historical fact. However in the last few days some students of the University of Emilia (Bologna in particular) have created a protest that has gathered thousands of people into madness. The protest is called ‘Sardine’.

Many support the Lega party (right) because they think the Migrants issue is of vital importance. Undoubtedly, Italy cannot continue to host illegal immigrants forever. But there are also many problems that only concern Italy. The five-star movement is probably the only party that is trying to do the right things, although now it is seen as a caste party, passing in a few days from the alliance with the right to the left.

 

 

Next Friday is the BLACK FRIDAY: expected incredible offers awaiting Christmas

4873210_1432_blackfriday

As almost everyone knows, the last Friday of November is black friday, the day when you can find many products at a favorable offer. This year the black friday happens on 29th November , almost close to the month of December. This will require many people to make advantageous purchases for Christmas.

Black Friday is an informal name for the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. The day after Thanksgiving was considered the beginning of the American Christmas shopping season since 1952.

Obviously, before the advent of the web and therefore the spread of online shopping portals, such as AMAZON, ebay, aliexpress, ect., Black friday was not known in the rest of the world, but above all it took place only in the United States.

In European countries, as I believe in other countries of the world, black friday is almost exclusively limited to internet promotions, as there is no Thanksgiving Day that starts this custom and there is a very large number of participants lower.

 

Some tips on purchases

  • Often tempting offerings lead us to buy with frenzy, not realizing that many of the things we buy do not serve us, but we only buy them for the exceptional price.
  • Often the offers inserted on amazon or on other sites are temporary, but it is always worth spending a few minutes to make a price comparison.
  • When we are attracted to a product we must always evaluate the entity of the price and that of the offer, considering our budget. A 50% discount on a € 5 product may not be useful. Instead a 50% discount on a € 100 product could be convenient if the product is of quality.
  • Don’t be fooled by the discount. It would be advisable to check the real price of the products before the black friday. Many may have the cunning to raise the price with the balance.
