Venice devastated by high water

venezia-acqua-alta-690x362

In the night between 12 and 13 November Venice was devastated by a storm that brought the sea level rise by 187cm! Although high water is almost a customary in Venice, this time the size of the event due to its intensity and consistency has not occurred since 1966, when the water rose by 194cm, a historical record for the city.

There were two victims, including one for electrocution due to a short circuit.

For years, Venice has been building a system called MOSE to block the rise of the sea. This system has cost the state 5 billion euros, with enormous delays in the completion of the works, especially for numerous investigations of bribes that led to the arrest of many people, including the former president of the Veneto region(Giancarlo Galan).

In the coming decades, Venice risks disappearing because climate change will lead to an increase in the sea. Furthermore, the land on which Venice rests is increasingly lowered.

It is incredible how this very serious theme has not led the Venetians to take measures without falling into corruption. Many think that the Mafia exists only in the south, but in recent years all the political scandals have come from the administrations of northern regions.

In the last few months Salvini of the Lega, is enjoying success, despite very debatable issues. He argued that the construction of the TAV (high speed train) was necessary but in reality it is the pretext to steal more money.

🎡 Lewis Capaldi – Bruises

 

LYRIC

Counting days, counting days
Since my love up and got lost on me
And every breath that I’ve been takin’
Since you left feels like a waste on me
I’ve been holding on to hope
That you’ll come back when you can find some peace
‘Cause every word that I’ve heard spoken
Since you left feels like a hollow street
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold ya
You’d keep my head from going under
Maybe I, maybe I’m just being blinded
By the brighter side
Of what we had because it’s over
Well there must be something in the tide
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
It’s your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
And I’m tired of being so exhausted
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Even though I’m nothing to you now
Even though I’m nothing to you now
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under

Jenniger Lopez and Shakira with Pepsi Sponsor of final NFL

Today, the social media went crazy at the news that in the interval of the next NFL final Jennifer Lopez and shakira will do a show together.

In the Super Bowl interval show, the final of the American football championship, one of the most anticipated and followed sporting events of the year: the next will be held on February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The news was given by the two singers and by Pepsi, the interval’s sponsor, on social networks.

Jennifer Lopez is now 50 years old but still makes the hearts and heads of men go crazy. One of my absolute singers and show girls.

Which other woman is like her?
I remember that when I was little, Pamela Anderson was very popular, but over the years she lost all her beauty.

Yet another Impeachment for Trump

Trump problems never end …
Is he against everyone or are they all against him?
Maybe both …

After the Russiagate investigation that put the president at risk for impeachment, there is the case of pressure on Ukrainian politicians that would have favored Trump in the elections. The president denied that he had only spoken to Zelens’kyj of Joe Biden.

Although Nancy PelosiΒ (Democratic Party) is beating for her to have an impeachment, it is unlikely that this will happen because the mid-term elections have only guaranteedΒ victory to the parliament and not to the Senate, where an impeachment presentation would be rejected.

Trump is unpleasant to many. His economic power is very large, but other politicians (democrats) would have done some trick to get more votes.

Trump’s consent is falling … but where are all those voters who voted for him in 2016? Trump is one of the few presidents to have lowered unemployment to 4%: a historical record.

Men of the right are always acted on of their power…

The new Italian government formed after the crisis

The President Mattarella and The Premier Conte

 

After the government crisis in which Italian Prime Minister Conte resigned, a new government was formed. The M5S, that in the elections of March 4 2019 was the most voted party (35%) but did not reach an absolute majority in order to govern alone, made an alliance with the Democratic party.

For many it was a political betrayal because until a few days before the M5S ruled with the right (Lega). Also for years the M5S and the PD have been insulted, especially after the Bibbiano scandals, which revealed the Democratic Party politicians in criminal cases concerning children.

The truth is that both the M5S and the PD wanted to avoid the elections because the polls gave both parties a sharp decline in favor of the Lega that have double the consensus: from 18% to 36%.

It is difficult to think that this government can last for all legislation because the parties that have joined together have very few things in common. Among the political issues of confrontation, there will almost certainly be immigration, which has been gripping the whole country for decades.

Matteo Salvini, leader of the League, was one of the few in fact to fight against illegal immigration that happens with the boats that land in the ports of the Italian coasts. This policy has led Salvini to have more enemies than friends in Italy and in Europe, where strangely a solidarity policy applies. Italy is objectively the country most penalized in illegal immigration and every year it suffers tens of thousands of landings of irregular migrants.

Despite the fact that Germany is the most hospitable to migrants, Italy is the country that hosts the most irregular immigrants.
In Germany there are precise rules and crossing German borders without documents there are very severe penalties.

Giuseppe Conte was again chosen for the new government, despite the disagreement of some members of the Left (Democratic Party). In fact, Giuseppe Conte held a diplomatic relationship with the rest of Europe during the first year of government (with the League), earning the respect of the EU and also of US PresidentΒ Donald Trump,Β who recently has expressed sympathy for him in a tweet, wishing him to lead the country.

The Italian markets and exchanges reacted quite well, except for a few days when it was thought that the agreement between the PD and M5S was not successful. Particularly when in a day of consultations among the various parties, Luigi Di Maio, leader of the M5S, raised the tone dictating the conditions of the agreement and making to fear a lacked agreement.

Regarding the government agreement, all members of the five-star movement through the Rousseau platform also expressed their opinion. Voting was definitely in favor of the agreement with 79%. The vote was however criticized by the right-wing parties, including the Lega, because they believe it is unfair that 70000 members of the M5S can decide for millions of Italians.

Although the agreement made with the PD remained the M5S as a traitor to the values ​​of coherence and position, uniting both with the right and then with the left in the same legislature reinforces that it was a workhorse of the movement: not to be right and left but go only against the system. Many dislike the agreement because the movement was born as a party for the protest vote against the corruption of caste and politics.

Early voting was very difficult to do because a government’s 1-year duration is very short, and indeed even the President of the Republic wanted the agreement between the left and the M5S, provided, however, that the parties presented political guidelines to be implemented together.

Security problem for facebook: 489 million mobile phone numbers online

facebook

A new security problem for Facebook has been revealed at this time. This time the mobile numbers of users of the social network were affected; they were put online due to a baffling and inexplicable lack of attention in the management of the database that contained them.

Furthermore, something even more serious was discovered: that the database was not protected by any password, leaving the information available to anyone who knew how to recover them.

The figures of the numbers are impressive: according to the report there is talk of as many as 419 million telephone numbers connected to Facebook user accounts and easily accessible to anyone. Of the more than 400 million data, 133 million were US users.

However mobile phone numbers were not directly associated with name and surname but only with an identification number, with which it is difficult to trace the user’s first and last name.

Facebook has tested the elimination of the number of likes

like

Most likely a huge news will come for facebook: the elimination of the number of likes, so it will no longer be possible to see the number of likes unless clicking on the post.

This novelty has already been applied to the other Zuckerberg social media: instagram! And it brought great changes because the likes were the first indicative data to know the popularity of a profile.

This novelty is part of a Mark ZuckerbergΒ philosophy project to remove the stress and emotion that brings the number of likes on the social media.Β The company has not declared any further information and is still not sure what the platform will reserve for its users.

SPORT: First win of the season for Ferrari in Belgium

ferrari
Finally Ferrari won. The Prancing Horse has returned to victory in Formula 1 thanks to Leclerc, the young Monegasque, who celebrates his first career victory in Spa, Belgium.

The red fast, which lasted from the 2018 US GP, ended up thanks to a driver who drove magnificently throughout the weekend and a Ferrari that was also perfect in planning the stops in the race. Today the Mercedes placed Lewis Hamilton and Bottas on the podium in front of Sebastian Vettel.

It is a victory that promises to attract many fans in seven days at Monza, but certainly sad considering the death of poor Anthoine Hubert in yesterday’s Formula 2 race.

Excellent fifth place for Alexander Albon who made his great debut with Red Bull.

We hope that this victory brings the formula one on a new road to see more show and more balance, without the overwhelming power of mercedes that has characterized the championships for many years.

Social Media Makeup (Trick)

2019 DRAWING of Pawel Kuczynski

Today everyone has a smartphone and therefore they use social media.

Today a phone without APP is useless. I know friends who have a smartphone but use it for very few essential apps: email, maps, whatsapp! Obviously these are rare cases: the most people cannot do without social networks, which become a real stage with which to show themselves, sometimes even pretending and impersonating a life that does not compose with theirs.

It’s the social game. It is perhaps the game of the web in general. But perhaps some social networks are more predisposed than others.
Facebook is the one that gives the possibility to show itself with its own detailed and specific profile: images, videos, posts, preferences, likes, etc …

The smartphone thus becomes a true and primary accessory, a cosmetic with which we often make up our lives.

Sometimes it is difficult to get rid of these social networks, that doing without them is like being out of the world. But sometimes the social fatigue surfaces and can lead to a real addiction.

Sometimes it is difficult to get rid of these social networks, that doing without them is like being out of the world.

But sometimes the social fatigue surfaces and can lead to a real addiction. A mask that often leaves traces and affects our lives as well as making us lose more time than we imagine.
