CORONAVIRUS – The story from Italy: locked up in their own homes.

brown-and-gray-painted-house-in-front-of-road-1396122
Today, 13th March is the second day when most of the citizens are locked up at home, and after the decree implemented on 11 March, only the curfew remains as the most extreme measure. Staying at home is not difficult but often you also need a walk, especially for those who live in the apartment.

We have to stay home until April 3rd. I learn from TV and internet news that today schools have also closed in Germany, where they have now exceeded 2000 co-infected. Many international VIPs have tested positive for Coronavirus and have already postponed some Europa League matches and the first Formula 1 grand prix in Australia.

Things to do at home would be many: the best thing would be to read a few books but often the web diverts our attention, especially with social networks, especially if the VIPs, like the singers, entertain us with their concerts from home, after they ran a whole campaign inviting all citizens to stay home ..

In addition to reading, many could discover the beauty and the art of writing or even drawing (or painting). In practice it can be a period to cultivate one’s passions or even to discover new ones. It is perhaps an unrepeatable period, which can divert us from the frenzy of everyday life and from the gloabal and social world.

The TV would be avoided, even if watching it a little never hurts … Of course if you are with your family it could be a burden to always be with your wife lol …
Every now and then you could go for a walk, for a breath of air, for sports or for the dog, but only if you are in an isolated area and without assemblies of people …

Better to avoid doing stupid things, such as going out to visit a friend or going to party .. in Italy thousands of fines have already been made to those who have transgressed the rules of the new decree ..
It is a time when you have to be responsible, although young people are the most carefree and less aware of the emergency situation. The virus could remain until the summer, although, according to what I learned from some statements by the heads of state of Germany and the United Kingdom, “almost” expects the virus to infect the whole population in order to trigger that mechanism called as ‘flock immunity’.

LYRIC

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

 

 

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

Greta Thunberg has been voted person of the year 2019 by Time

greta-thunberg-formatkey-jpg-default

Greta Thunberg, the Swedish girl activist who, for many months, has been taking to the streets all over the world to protest against climate change caused by pollution, was voted by TIME magazine as a person of the year 2019.

The American magazine, which has always voted for the most influential person on the planet (for better or for worse) has left President Trump empty-handed, who was one of the contenders for the title. However, although the Swedish girl has won the title of one of the most famous and presitigiose magazines on the planet, it is right to ask oneself, if Greta Thumberg is as influential as it seems. Surely the media reports give reason to her because the news of all nations talk about her protests. But then how much does she affect the decisions of heads of state on the rules to preserve the effects of pollution?

Presidents of the most powerful nations on earth like President Trump have given little consideration to Greta, indeed they have “limited” themselves to teasing her with a few jokes.
The Trump administration formally submitted documentation to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement, keeping its promise to scrap another of Barack Obama’s legacies.

Despite the fact that Greta divides many between sympathy and dislike, without ever generating hate parties, there are many people who claim that behind Greta there are great interests, obscure in public opinion.

Greta Thunberg is the daughter of opera singer Malena Ernman and actor Svante Thunberg. When she was 13, she was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. Also due to its notoriety, much attention has been given to the symptoms she experienced and related to this syndrome: obsessive-compulsive disorder, selective mutism and attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder. Very often these informations are used to discredit she or to refute her environmental ideas. She herself spoke about her condition in some interviews.
