Grande partenza per la Notte Nera di Triora!

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 31 ottobre 2011

Bagno di folla ieri pomeriggio per la prima giornata della Notte Nera di Triora, la festa organizzata dal Comune di Triora in occasione di Halloween in collaborazione con il gruppo di lavoro di Pepi Morgia e con Corelli Musica (www.corellimusica.it). Moltissime persone hanno letteralmente preso d’assalto l’affascinante borgo medioevale attratte dalle ricche proposte che gli organizzatori hanno messo a punto (in allegato alcuni scatti di Raffaella Sottile).
Apprezzatissimi gli intrattenimenti per i più piccini: la Strega Truccabimbi che ha dipinto il volto di tutti coloro che hanno voluto cambiare sembianze, i racconti di paura, i combattimenti, le danze e le sceneggiate inerenti alla cattura, al processo e alla liberazione della strega realizzate dagli armigeri, dai ballerini e dagli attori del gruppo storico degli Aleramici di Savona. La Notte Nera prosegue questa sera con la musica! Special guest, dall’Heineken Jammin’ Festival, i Plan de Fuga, la new sensation del panorama rock nazionale, band dalle influenze pop, rock, funk e dark perfettamente amalgamate per una musica viva e travolgente. I Plan de Fuga si esibiranno alle ore 23, presso Il boschetto, in opening act con i GOTHAM CREW, band italiana di new rock alternativo, look glam e sound potente. Il programma prevede anche l’esibizione del sestetto Lajò (ore 21, piazza del mercato) che proporrà musica e canti della tradizione ligure del Ponente, e dei Lumihiutale, symphonic metal band (ore 22, spianata del Castello) che può vantare del fascino dell’arpa celtica di Claudia Murachelli.Tutti gli eventi sono a ingresso libero.www.halloweentriora.it

Sei stressato? Impara a meditare

Orvieto, Umbria, Italia

Orvieto, (Terni) 31 ottobre 2011 – Si è concluso ieri al palazzo dei Congressi di Orvieto il Congresso internazionale di psiconeuroendocrinoimmunologia sul rapporto tra stress e salute.Le conclusioni del Congresso sono state affidate al Presidente Onorario della stessa Società scientifica (SIPNEI), Francesco Bottaccioli. Il professor Bottaccioli ha delineato come nell’ultimo 20ennio le diagnosi di disturbi mentali dovuti allo stress sono cresciute di 2,5 volte. Per i bambini di ben 35 volte! Le malattie mentali sono diventate la principale causa di disabilità nei bambini soppiantando il Down e la paralisi cerebrale. Ci troviamo di fronte a un eccesso di diagnosi e, al tempo stesso, a un eccesso di trattamento farmacologico. Oggi più di 500.000 bambini assumono antipsicotici e il 10% dei bambini di 10 anni assumono farmaci per il Disordine da deficit di attenzione e iperattività (ADHD). Oggi circa il 10% degli Americani dai 6 anni in su assume antidepressivi, ma la diffusione dell’uso degli antipsicotici di nuova generazione è ancora più drammatica.  Questi farmaci hanno rimpiazzato le statine nella classifica dei farmaci più venduti in assoluto e vengono prescritti anche a bambini molto piccoli a partire dai 2 anni di età. (M. ANGEL The New York Review of Books, June 23, July 14, 2011). Anche l’Italia corre questo rischio di rispondere con farmaci al crescente disagio sociale: ogni anno il nostro paese spende più di un milione di euro per ansiolitici e antidepressivi. Occorre imparare a gestore lo stress della vita. “Lo stress è oggi una bilancia vitale che fa parte itinerante  della vita di tutti noi, il problema nasce quando esso viene  sopravvalutato o sottovalutato.” Mette ben in evidenza il professore durante la chiusura lavori del Congresso di Orvieto. “La ricerca sullo stress, con l’emergere della psiconeuroendocrinoimmunologia, ha infatti perso i suoi vaghi connotati di psicologia descrittiva diventando oggi un campo di studio interdisciplinare, nel quale confluiscono diverse figure di scienziati e di clinici. Prima della Psiconeuroendocrinoimmunologia, la questione di fondo, in ambito scientifico, era così riassumibile: “posto che lo stress altera la psiche di una persona, come fa questo malessere mentale a produrre effetti patogenetici sull’organismo?”  Ricorda il Professore –  “La psiche ha precise vie di collegamento con i grandi sistemi biologici, con il sistema nervoso, l’endocrino e l’immunitario. Uno studio dello stress che si limiti all’esame delle relazioni tra i mediatori (neurotrasmettitori, citochine, ormoni) dei tre grandi sistemi biologici studia un artefatto non l’organismo umano sotto stress. Occorre quindi inserire anche lo studio delle relazioni psicologiche perché la psiche retroagisce sul cervello e sugli altri sistemi biologici (il sistema immunitario in particolare) modificandoli.” Al riguardo, uno studio coordinato da Bottaccioli assieme all’Università di Ancona ha testato125 partecipanti ai corsi di tecniche antistress e meditative gestiti dallo stesso Bottaccioli e dalla dott.ssa Antonia Carosella maestra di tecniche meditative. I partecipanti sono stati studiati con un test di misurazione della depressione dell’ansia prima e dopo il corso e con la misurazione del cortisolo salivare sempre prima e dopo. I risultati sono che lo stress l’ansia e la depressione vengono abbattuti di tre volte e che il cortisolo salivare ha una riduzione statisticamente significativa. Questo studio verrà sottoposto a una rivista scientifica internazionale per la sua pubblicazione Riguardo al rapporto tra mente e cervello il Professor Bottaccioli ha poi citato alcuni studi recenti tra cui uno studio che ha interessato un gruppo di studenti tedeschi impegnati nella preparazione dell’esame Phisicum (esame finale del biennio pre-clinico di medicina all’Università), un test molto impegnativo che richiede 3 mesi di studio intenso.  Il cervello di questi studenti è stato monitorato con la risonanza magnetica funzionale prima dell’inizio del test, dopo, e a distanza di 3 mesi. I ricercatori hanno potuto documentare un forte incremento dell’attività di sinapsi dei neuroni  cerebrali con l’allargamento dell’aria occupata da questi stessi neuroni nei circuiti interessati alla memoria (ippocampo e corteccia parietale posteriore).  Ciò vuol dire che i comportamenti modificano la struttura del cervello e possono migliorare le sue funzioni. Al contrario uno stress cronico, causa una riduzione di queste stesse aree celebrali e una iperattivazione di quelle aree coinvolte nelle emozioni (amigdala).

Aumenta la disoccupazione

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 31 ottobre 2011

Enrico Letta at the Trento 2009 Economics Fest...

Image via Wikipedia

“I dati pubblicati oggi sull’occupazione giovanile significano solo una cosa: le parole del governo sono un racconto fantascientifico della realtà. Non c’e corrispondenza alcuna tra quanto il nostro Presidente del Consiglio e i suoi ministri stanno descrivendo dentro e fuori dai confini nazionali e ciò che avviene nel mondo reale. L’andamento della disoccupazione giovanile, che spesso abbiamo denunciato come il primo tema su cui concentrare ogni sforzo, è emblematico dell’immobilismo totale di questi anni. È chiaro che fare riforme oggi non significa aumentare già da domani i posti di lavoro, ma stare fermi non fa che acuire i problemi. L’unica proposta del governo riguarda la libertà di licenziamento, che ci viene presentata come la panacea di tutti i mali e che neanche considera il fatto che se non si dà energia all’economia non c’è liberta di licenziamento che tenga per creare nuovi posti di lavoro. È urgente, invece, una riforma complessiva del mercato del lavoro che faciliti le nuove assunzioni solo se si completa la riforma del
welfare. Purtroppo, ogni azione concreta richiede autorevolezza e credibilità, capacità di analisi e di ascolto, serietà e sensibilità. Tutte caratteristiche che né il governo, né il suo Presidente, hanno da tempo”.Così Alessia Mosca, deputato del PD, segretario della Commissione Lavoro della Camera, e vicepresidente di TrecentoSessanta, l’Associazione di Enrico Letta

Attacco a Kandahar

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Alle 6 di questa mattina, un attacco suicida organizzato a Kandahar ha causato la morte di tre operatori dell’Alto Commissariato delle Nazioni Unite per i Rifugiati (UNHCR) presso il compound dell’Agenzia ed il ferimento di altri due membri dello staff.L’UNHCR è presente in Afghanistan dagli anni 80, durante questo periodo ha facilitato il rientro a casa di milioni di rifugiati e assistito altre persone costrette alla fuga all’interno del paese. L’UNHCR sta cercando di capire meglio le circostanze dell’attacco di questa mattina, tuttavia rimane il fatto che operatori dell’agenzia sono stati uccisi o feriti e che le funzioni dell’UNHCR a Kandahar risultano seriamente compromesse. “Quanto accaduto rappresenta una tragedia per l’UNHCR e per le famiglie delle vittime e dei feriti ed evidenzia gli enormi rischi che gli operatori umanitari corrono in Afghanistan,” ha affermato l’Alto Commissario per i rifugiati António Guterres. “Sono estremamente amareggiato. Tutti noi all’UNHCR esprimiamo la nostra solidarietà alle famiglie delle vittime e dei feriti.”

Andrea Dezsö

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 31 ottobre 2011

Ridgefield, CT October 31st  from 4 to 8 pm The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum  258 Main Street, (Hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 12 noon to 5 pm  Closed on Mondays and New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, the Fourth of July) The Aldrich is pleased to announce the opening of Andrea Dezsö: Haunted Ridgefield—the latest installment of the Museum’s popular Main Street Sculpture Project—featuring folklore, fantasies, and fears. The Transylvania-born artist’s site-specific exhibition at The Aldrich showcases her skill in traditional, labor intensive, hand-crafted book-making, and will take the form of a diorama, in which a series of cut-out panels will reveal layers of a hallucinatory narrative featuring fantasy worlds and idiosyncratic characters.  Dezsö presents a powerful journey to the interior of the psyche through giant multimedia tunnel books, visible through the windows of the Museum’s historic 1783 administration building on Main Street.  Aldrich curator Mónica Ramírez-Montagut explains, “Dezsö was inspired by Connecticut’s haunted places and their stories; her exhibition will feature strange child-like creatures that populate the bizarre environment of her installation.”
Dezsö is Assistant Professor of Art at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. She was full time faculty at Parsons School of Design in New York.

Seasonal makeovers are standard for Coke cans

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 31 ottobre 2011

Surfboards and flip-flops adorned cans last summer. But, according to the company, a new can-design rollout marks the first time in the beverage giant’s history the cans will ditch their trademark red and try on a different-colored body suit — and all in the name of a great environmental cause. From November 1 through the end of February, Coca-Cola will release 1.4 billion white Coke cans in the United States and Canada, each showing polar bears against a field of white. The temporary redesign is part of a joint campaign the company is undertaking with the World Wildlife Fund to protect the Arctic habitat of its wintertime mascot, the polar bear. “We’re using one of our greatest assets — our flagship brand, Coca-Cola — to raise awareness for this important cause,” said Muhtar Kent, chairman and CEO of the Coca-Cola Company, CNNMoney reports. In addition to an initial $2 million donation to the WWF, Coke will match up to $1 million that Coke drinkers will be able to donate to the campaign via text message. The white cans’ launch will be accompanied by a marketing bonanza that includes in-store advertising, digital billboards and an Arctic-themed IMAX movie tie-in. “Through all that outreach we should be able to make it clear what we’re doing,” Coke spokesman Ben Sheidler said, the CNN story reports.

London. Thousands of affiliates joined the race to drive traffic to EP’s online poker rooms, but only one drove away with the top prize – a brand new Porsche Carrera Earlier this week, the online gaming affiliate program Euro Partners announced the long-awaited winner of its exclusive Poker Porsche promotion. The lottery-style contest called upon the program’s wide network of affiliates to increase promotional efforts for its online poker rooms, Titan Poker and Mansion Poker. Of the thousands who participated, EP’s Research & Analysis team short-listed the top 50 who succeeded in driving the largest amounts of traffic. Davin Jacobson, EP’s newly-appointed Head of Affiliation, had not yet joined the company when the promotion began, but was pleased to be part of the prize giveaway. “Our winner is the owner and operator of several successful industry portals, including pokerinside.com. He’s a long-standing member of our program, and we’re happy that the prize is going to such a worthy contestant.” Launched late last June following the highly-publicized Full Tilt Poker scandal, the promotion was intended to offset some of the negative backlash which had reverberated throughout the poker affiliate community. “Those were precarious days for the industry and doomsday speculations were running rampant”, Jacobson said. “This promotion was our way of telling the affiliates that Euro Partners would remain a solid and reliable partner.”
Titan Poker, Euro Partners’ flagship poker brand, is currently running its own exciting promotions for online poker fans, including Titan Time, which offers $20,000 in weekly cash table and tournament races throughout the month of October, and European Football League, which offers $30,000 to players who correctly guess this season’s match results. For additional details, visit Titanpoker.com/promotions.

Art Students Drill Educational Alliance CEO on Renovation Plans

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 31 ottobre 2011

Since the summer, we have been following developments at the Educational Alliance art school, where students are up-in-arms about the historic Lower East Side institution’s renovation plans. Tonight, some of those students gathered in the rain for a brief protest in front of the Educational Alliance’s headquarters, at 197 East Broadway. They then proceeded up to the 5th floor studios, where the organization’s CEO, Robin Bernstein, fielded questions from 50-60 angry students.
A similar meeting was held in August, before the Educational Alliance board had actually signed off on a nearly $50 million proposal to “get-renovate” the 122 year-old building. During her opening remarks, Bernstein said she took seriously the concerns expressed at that initial session about a decision to shut down the school entirely during the renovation period. As a result, Bernstein explained, some classes (including ceramics, painting and drawing) would be temporarily offered at other Educational Alliance facilities above Houston Street.The architect hired to oversee the renovation project outlined the art school plan, which includes moving the studios to the lower level, eliminating the darkroom and welding studio, and shrinking the school’s space by 825 square feet. The new facility will be comprised of three “versatile” studios. Windows will extend from the ceiling to about five feet above the ground. The current 5th floor space is destined to become a mixed use community room, where seniors will be served lunch, performances will be held and neighborhood gatherings will take place.Supporters of the art school vented their frustration throughout tonight’s meeting and peppered Bernstein with many questions. They criticized the suggestion that there might be no room for sculpture and stone carving classes after the renovation. They argued that the move from the airy, sun-splashed 5th floor would deprive artists of a truly special creative environment, and “decimate” the school. They chided the organization for neglecting to consult students and teachers about changes in advance.Bernstein repeated many of the points she made during an interview with The Lo-Down last month. In a tough economy, she said, the institution was forced to balance the needs of many constituencies. While the art school is important, she explained, many other programs (including early childhood classes) are also vital to the organization’s “core mission.” Bernstein said hundreds of low-income families are turned away every year due to space constraints.Some students said they resented the suggestion that choices needed to be made between art and children. One particularly vocal student asked pointedly whether the Educational Alliance was pushing the art school from its 5th floor perch for financial reasons.In response, Bernstein was quite candid about the financial pressures her organization faces. She emphasized a commitment to serving the entire community — the traditional immigrant and low income population, as well as more affluent newcomers. Referring to expanded “wellness” programs the renovation will accommodate, she said “God willing people who can pay for services will be able to subsidize programs that don’t pay for themselves.” Last year alone, Bernstein pointed out, the organization lost $1.5 million in government funding. In the years ahead, she warned, non-profit organizations must face the reality that public funds are quickly drying up.As the questioning continued, Bernstein finally told students, “we’re going to have to respectfully disagree.” Some of the participants tonight offered specific suggestions to make the art school more profitable. Bernstein agreed to meet with a small group to discuss possible creative solutions. The renovation project is expected to get underway before the end of the year and to last for about two years.
