Today is the world day radio

radio

Every year, February 13 is the World Radio Day.

World Radio Day, promoted by UNESCO, serves to remind the importance of the radio instrument in celebrating humanity in all its diversity. And that, despite the technological progress and the advent of the web, it remains the most widespread media globally.

World Radio Day 2020 will be held on Thursday 13 February around the theme of “Radio and diversity.” UNESCO and UN calls on radio stations to uphold diversity, both in their newsroom and on the airwaves.

This edition of this year of World Radio Day is divided into three main sub-themes:

Advocating for pluralism in radio, including a mix of public, private and community broadcasters;
Encouraging representation in the newsroom, with teams representing diverse society groups;
Promoting a diversity of editorial content and programme types reflecting the variety of the audiences.
In the world, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard. Radio stations should serve diverse communities, offering a wide variety of programs, viewpoints and content, and reflect the diversity of audiences in their organizations and operations. Technological advances are also participating to diversity the radio sector: DAB+, DRM, IP streaming.

The New year in the world

2020

The New Year is celebrated all over the world, or rather all over the world that has the Gregorian calendar, that is mainly the Christian one. For example, in some eastern countries such as China, New Year is celebrated on 25th January. The Jews instead celebrate the New Year generally in September.
The Islamic New Year is celebrated on the first day of the month of Muharram and can correspond to any period of the Gregorian year, because the lunar year used in the Islamic calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than the calendar year of the Gregorian calendar, so that an Islamic date “moves” back, compared to the Gregorian calendar, by about a month every three years.

However, the New Year on the Gregorian calendar is celebrated with fireworks all over the world, although fireworks are a delicate theme every year, because there are always accidents. Due to the time zone, the New Year begins earlier in some countries. The first to celebrate will be the inhabitants of Kiritimati instead the last will be those of the American Samoe Islands.

Using cell phones since the 2000s, I can compare the difference with the present day. At one time during midnight the lines were clogged and it was difficult even to send a simple text message. Today, however, the telephone lines hold up well because everyone constantly uses the internet.

Today is a public holiday, and most countries celebrate the motherhood of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Despite this, one of the things that surprised me is that England is one of the few countries where the football matches takes place in New Year. Infact, The Brighton-Chelsea match was played today.

🎵 COLDPLAY – Champion of the world

After listening to the whole album on spotify I can say that this is the best song on the album. The style of the various songs differs greatly from that of the previous albums. Some may be disappointed by the more classic and less rock style.

In fact I like this album less, where the voices and the choirs take over the music and the voice of Chris Martin. Probably the band had the need to break a bit with the classic pop-rock that made all the songs of real hits.

The first part of the text is in Igbo language, a language of an African ethnic group that lives in Nigeria and the translation is:

What are you talking about, dear God?
For everything
God made it

 

LYRICS
Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every duel
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
“A champion of the world”

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best at taking flight
But my rocket ship reversed
Oh, referee, don’t stop the fight
Everyone can see I’m hurt
But I’ll stand before conquistadors
Till I’m champion of the world

(When I sail) And when I sail
I’m sailing west
(Know I might fail) Knowing I might fail
But still I’m hoping for the best
(In my dreams) And in my dreams
Onto my chest
She’ll pin the colours and say
“I wandered the whole wide world but
Baby, you’re the best”

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

So I’m flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I have E.T. on my bicycle
Because giving up won’t work
Now I’m riding on my rocketship
And I’m champion of the world

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO

Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

Ho fatto del mio meglio per essere proprio come
Gli altri ragazzi a scuola
Ho fatto del mio meglio per farlo bene
E morire ad ogni duello
Questo versante è un suicidio
Questo sogno non funzionerà maiAncora una scritta sulla mia lapide, che dice
“Un campione del mondo”

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

Ho fatto del mio meglio per stare tranquillo
Volare come un fuoco d’artificio
Ma la mia nave spaziale si è capovolta
Oh, arbitro, non fermare la lotta
Tutti possono vedere che sono ferito
Ma starò davanti ai conquistatori
Fino a quando non sarò campione del mondo

(Quando navigo) E quando navigo
Navigo verso ovest
(So che potrei fallire)Sapendo che potrei fallire
Ma, spero comunque per il meglio
(Nei miei sogni) E nei miei sogni
Sul mio pettoLei appunterà i colori e dirà
“Ho girato il mondo i lungo e in largo ma
Tesoro, tu sei il meglio”

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

Quindi sto volando sulla mia bicicletta
Uscendo dalla Terra
Sto saltando senza il paracadute
Fuori nell’universo
Ho E.T. sulla mia bicicletta
Perché arrendersi non servirà
Ora sto guidando la mia nave spaziale
E io sono il campione del mondo

1st December: World AIDS Day

aids

“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).

#SingaporeGP: Ferrari wins!

Ferrari win in the Singapore GP

Today Ferrari won at the Singapore Grand Prix! We hope that the Mercedes domain is over! The Ferrari won with the talent of Leclerc and with a superiority of Car demonstrated since the qualifying tests.

Today among the most popular trends and hashtags (of twitter) is the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

It remains difficult for me to think that the formula1 is one of the most viewed sports at international level, despite the victory of the Maranello team.

The #singaporeGP trand is indeed present in some of European countries, the United States and even Japan! Twitter almost always gives an image of the world trends! Except instead of those Asian rapper trand …

It is a pity that the Ferrari has “woken up” only now that the world championship is almost closed. Although in fact the world championship is still open with mathematical numbers, The probability that the Ferrari will win is a miracle.

I very much hope that the Mercedes domination is over because in the last few years I have followed Formula 1 a little. I don’t know how the rest of the world public reacted to Hamilton’s domination, but surely without balance the sport is ugly and boring.

According to a survey two years ago, Ferrari was the most popular team: Ferrari 31.9%,
Mercedes 16.2%, McLaren 15.8%, Red Bull Racing 14.1%, Williams 5%. Probably even if the popularity of Mercedes has increased with the last two world championships won, the Ferrari always remains the most popular.

Charles Leclerc 21 years

With the latest victories, Charles Leclerc promises well in the future as a champion of Ferrari and Formula 1. The 21-year-old Monegasque has a whole future ahead of him. Undoubtedly, the Ferrari has made a good choice to take a young driver and support him with a world champion like Vettel.

The clear proof of the talent of the Monegasque pilot is the overtaking done against Gasly at the Silverstone Grand Prix on July 14, 2019.

Here is the link of the splendid overtaking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=868k7_0NFAc

But the merit is not only of Leclerc because this year the roles of Ferrari managers have been renewed.

 

 

The next grand prix will take place in Russia on September 29th!

Ferrari can only hope to win the constructors ‘championship because it is achievable and not an impossible mission like the drivers’ championship.
