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.

For once in your life, make it matter
For once in your life, let it be
Why don’t you hand it all over?
And sing it loudly with me?
Soon we will all be forgotten
But while we’re all still here on Earth
Sing about love and forget about loss
And shout for whatever you’re worth
C’mon, spread the word
(Christmas time)
Doesn’t everyone hurt?
Do you remember the gold old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is here
Mum’s got a lot to get together
And dad, he provides what he can
They’ve been saving up forever and ever and ever
Just to do it all over again
Got me dreaming of home
(Christmas time)
Fills my heart full of hope
Do you remember the gold old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is here
A time for a change
Must be here
So send all your loving out into the world
It’s your gift
Do you remember the gold old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is herew

 

 

The monstrous goal of Cristiano Ronaldo against the Sampdoria.

cristiano

Have you seen Ronaldo’s last goal? Yesterday, 18th December, Juve played against Sampdoria and won with two splendid goals from Dybala and Ronaldo. In particular, Ronaldo’s goal was monstrous in technique and athletic level. CR7 hit the head ball with an incredible elevation remaining suspended for an infinite time. Cristiano Ronaldo has accustomed us to similar goals, with enormous elevations, but this goal seemed to be from another planet. One of the best goals in football.

Champions League round of 16 draw

EL55rLRXkAA9Jl1

On Monday 16th the draws for the Champions League knockout rounds took place in Nyon (Switzerland), in addition to those of the Europa League. For the champions there were some very interesting draws in terms of clashes between teams.

The most balanced matches are: Chelsea-Bayern, Atletico-Liverpool, RealMadrid-ManchesterCity, on which it is difficult to make a prediction.

Probably the team that had the most favorable (lucky) draw was Juventus who will play Lyon. Even Tottenham was lucky, meeting Leipzig, which on paper is perhaps even easier than Lyon. Barcelona will meet Napoli, which although it is a difficult team, is certainly not a big danger. The atalanta, the Italian team that for the first time arrived in the Champions League and even in the round of 16, will meet Valencia. This will be a very interesting game. In theory, Valencia is favored which, as is the case in Spanish tradition, will be very difficult, but it is not certain that it will win.

The favorite teams for the Champions League final victory are surely Manchester City and Barcelona. Real and Juve have a good chance, in addition to PSG. The other teams will have a hard life.

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 ​​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.

LYRIC

I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It’s easy to say
But it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain
Now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to turn to
This all or nothing way of loving got me sleeping without you
Now, I need somebody to know
Somebody to heal
Somebody to have
Just to know how it feels
It’s easy to say but it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you helped me escape
Now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
And I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes
I fall into your arms
I’ll be safe in your sound ’til I come back around
For now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
But now the day bleeds
Into nightfall
And you’re not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved

Robbie Williams – Time for Change

 

LYRIC

I heard some kids telling me
How they’ve lost all the faith in the way
They’ve been talking world peace
And the wars in the streets
The lines on their faces so deep
A revolution or reach out and touch the day
We’re overdue child
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Oh no
I feel the the future in the hands
Of our youth will be safe
No more lies
Old, tired fools tell our future
With tarot cards, and lie of crime
The lines on their faces so deep
A revolution or reach out and touch the day
We’re overdue child
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
I’ll change
I’ll change
Not tomorrow but today
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change
Change
Now it’s time for change
Nothing stays the same
Now it’s time for change

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.
