Problemi di comunicazione e di circolazione

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

Mi riferisco, nello specifico, ai nuovi orientamenti sul trasporto urbano i quali attengono l’uso intensivo del veicolo “ibrido”, sia se dotato di un diesel a bassissima emissione di gas o a batterie, per consentire la trazione elettrica, oppure con motore ad idrogeno, con scarichi di vapore acqueo. Questi criteri sono di per sé validi. Resta, tuttavia, la mancanza di spazi per muoversi congiunto ai problemi di sicurezza, se pensiamo al modo come sia possibile manipolare un gas così insidioso qual è l’idrogeno. Attualmente i trasporti urbani di numerose città italiane ed europee utilizzano il biodiesel.
Esso è un prodotto ottenuto dalla esterificazione di oli vegetali (colza, soia, girasole) e i loro derivati con alcoli inferiori (ad esempio alcol metilico). Costa quasi il doppio del gasolio, ma non contiene zolfo e quindi bruciando non emette anidride solforosa. Ma tutto sommato si è rivelato ben poca cosa per ridurre l’inquinamento atmosferico delle grandi città. (redazionale)

Teatro: Il motore di Roselena con Gea Martire

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

Roma 15 – 26 gennaio 2020 Via del Teatro Marcello, 4 Orari spettacolo: dal martedì al venerdì ore 21.00. Sabato doppia replica ore 17,00 e ore 21,00. Domenica ore 17.00. Costo biglietti: platea 25 euro, prima galleria 20 euro, seconda galleria 18 euro sarà in scena IL MOTORE DI ROSELENA, da un’idea di Gea Martire, drammaturgia di Antonio Pascale e Gea Martire. Protagonista una travolgente Gea Martire, diretta da Nadia Baldi. I costumi sono di Carlo Poggioli.
Storia in forma monologata dell’emancipazione di Roselena, nata e cresciuta dietro al Vesuvio. Il tono è tragicomico, come lei. Roselena è infiammata da una grande passione per le macchine. Una donna! C’è chi si sogna in abito da sposa, chi in tailleur manageriale, lei in tuta da pilota. L’importante nella vita è avere un motore e lei ce l’ha in testa come un chiodo fisso. Fin da piccola. Con molta meraviglia la madre si rende conto che il rumore dei motori delle macchine l’acquieta come nessuna ninna nanna e la mette di buon umore. Crescendo, il suo linguaggio dialettale, spesso sgrammaticato, colorito e poco forbito, diventa adeguato, calzante, perfetto se si ritrova a parlare di motori, carburatori, testate, pistoni, aerodinamicità. Le reazioni di chi la conosce passano dallo stupore alla perplessità allo scherno. Perché le persone intorno a lei sono fossi pieni d’acqua dentro i quali il suo motore si affoga. La bloccano, la mandano in avarìa. Ma Roselena sa aggiustare i motori scassati e truccarli a dovere, e ogni volta mette insieme i pezzi e riparte. Riuscirà ad arrivare alla meta e battere ogni record? O prenderà altre direzioni, condotta da quella macchina che tutti chiamano destino e che procede ignorando i nostri comandi? In ogni caso Roselena avrà vinto perché ha sfidato, combattuto e, di sicuro, non si è annoiata. Durata 1 ora e 20 minuti.

Scuola: Concorso infanzia e primaria per 17 mila maestri

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

Sembra imminente il bando del concorso ordinario infanzia e primaria, posti comuni e di sostegno: sul sistema telematico Polis – Istanze On Line, il ministero dell’Istruzione ha pubblicato in queste ore una schermata sulla procedura rivolta agli aspiranti docenti del primo ciclo. Per Anief bisogna bandire contemporaneamente anche un nuovo concorso riservato e confermare i ruoli di chi ha superato l’anno di prova. Marcello Pacifico, presidente nazionale Anief: “Si andranno a coprire soltanto una minima parte dei posti senza titolari, mentre per decine di migliaia di precari di lungo corso si continuerà a tenere la porta chiusa, anche a coloro che saranno licenziati dopo aver superato l’anno di prova. Si deve organizzare anche un nuovo concorso riservato perché così si danneggiano i precari della scuola dell’infanzia e della primaria due volte e senza alcuna ragione.”Secondo la rivista Orizzonte Scuola, il Miur “sta effettuando le prime prove per l’inserimento delle domande e per la loro compilazione. Si stanno anche ultimando i conteggi dei posti vacanti e disponibili per gli anni 2020/21 e 2021/22”.Manca davvero poco per l’avvio della selezione dei maestri di infanzia primaria. In base al DPCM pubblicato in Gazzetta Ufficiale, il concorso servirà all’assunzione di 16.959 docenti: 10.624 per l’anno scolastico 2020/2021; 6.335 per l’anno scolastico 2021/2022. Tuttavia i posti potrebbero subire una leggera flessione in considerazione della proroga di un ulteriore anno delle graduatorie del concorso 2016. In ogni caso il concorso sarà bandito esclusivamente nelle regioni in cui, per il periodo considerato, ci saranno posti vacanti e disponibili, in modo da assicurare le assunzioni in ruolo.Il bando indicherà le date di presentazione della domanda. Gli unici titoli di accesso al concorso ordinario Infanzia e Primaria risultano la laurea in Scienze della formazione primaria oppure il diploma magistrale con valore di abilitazione e diploma sperimentale a indirizzo linguistico, conseguiti presso gli istituti magistrali, o analogo titolo di abilitazione conseguito all’estero e riconosciuto in Italia ai sensi della normativa vigente, conseguiti, comunque, entro l’anno scolastico 2001/2002. È possibile presentare un analogo titolo conseguito all’estero e riconosciuto dal Miur. Non saranno richiesti i 24 CFU in discipline antropo-psico-pedagogiche e nelle metodologie e tecnologie didattiche (richiesti solo ai laureati per l’accesso al concorso della secondaria), né requisiti di servizio di insegnamento. E potranno partecipare anche i docenti di ruolo.
Per i posti di sostegno è invece necessario essere in possesso, oltre ad uno dei titoli suddetti, del titolo di specializzazione sul sostegno per il grado specifico. Il bando specificherà la possibilità di accesso con riserva per i docenti che stanno partecipando al IV ciclo TFA sostegno: il titolo dovrà essere conseguito entro il 15 luglio 2020. Saranno ammessi con riserva coloro che, avendo conseguito all’estero i titoli di cui alle lettere a) e b) del comma 1 e di cui al comma 2, abbiano comunque presentato la relativa domanda di riconoscimento alla Direzione generale per gli ordinamenti scolastici. Il decreto scuola ha ampliato i requisiti di accesso, permettendo la partecipazione con riserva dei docenti specializzandi SOS IV ciclo TFA sostegno.

BPER Forum Monzani

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

Modena dall’11 gennaio al 2 febbraio via Aristotele, 33 BPER Forum Monzani porta sul palco grandi autori con i loro ultimi libri. Forum Eventi, la rassegna organizzata da BPER Banca con il patrocinio del Comune di Modena, propone cinque nuovi appuntamenti gratuiti con scrittori, giornalisti, filosofi, personaggi televisivi.
Si comincia sabato 11 gennaio alle 17.30 con il teologo Vito Mancuso che presenta il suo libro La forza di essere migliori (Garzanti). Viviamo secondo un modello di sviluppo che adora gli oggetti, non la lettura, la cultura, la partecipazione sociale e politica. Consumiamo, inquiniamo, ma così devastiamo noi stessi e il nostro pianeta. Essere migliori è diventato quindi un’urgenza, e il lavoro etico e spirituale una necessità non rimandabile. Ma come far nascere, in noi, il desiderio di praticare il bene? Riscoprendo le nostre radici che affondano nella cultura classica e nella tradizione cristiana Vito Mancuso ci accompagna in viaggio lungo il sentiero delle quattro virtù cardinali, e offre una nuova prospettiva di senso per le nostre vite in balìa dei tumultuosi venti dell’esistenza. Perché solo colui che non cerca più di vincere e di prevalere, ma recupera il senso profondo dell’essere forte, saggio e temperante, può infine essere giusto, e fiorire in armonia con il mondo.
Lunedì 13 gennaio alle 21 c’è ‘ la regola del 9 di Lorenzo Bernardi, una ricetta personale che ora è diventata il titolo del primo libro del famoso pallavolista – edito da Roi Edizioni, scritto in collaborazione con Serena Piazza – che Bernardi: Sarà presentata con la partecipazione di Julio Velasco, Livio Proli e Stefano Domenicali. Giocatore di punta di quella ‘generazione di fenomeni’ allenata da Julio Velasco che ha fatto splendere al massimo la stella del volley maschile italiano, Lorenzo Bernardi è oggi tra i migliori allenatori di pallavolo in circolazione.
Domenica 19 gennaio alle 17.30 il giornalista Gian Antonio Stella racconta la storia della disabilità, ripercorsa nel suo libro Diversi (Solferino): si tratta di una storia di orrori, crimini, errori scientifici, incubi religiosi fino alla catastrofica illusione di perfezionare l’uomo e al genocidio nazista degli «esseri inutili», attraverso le vite di uomini e donne che hanno subìto di tutto. Tra loro Stella cita Stephen Hawking, che poteva muovere solo la palpebra dell’occhio destro ma continuava a fare conferenze e rinnovò fino all’ultimo la prenotazione per un volo nello spazio. Dodicimilacinquecento anni prima il suo avo preistorico «Romito 8», paralizzato per una brutta caduta, riuscì a vivere e a essere utile agli altri grazie a ciò che gli era rimasto di intatto: i denti. Il libro racconta di vicende umane straordinarie, uomini e donne che hanno resistito meglio potevano all’odio e al disprezzo fino a riuscire piano piano a cambiare il mondo. Almeno un po’.
Domenica 26 gennaio alle 17.30 E’ “Il colibrì” (La nave di Teseo) il protagonista del nuovo romanzo di Sandro Veronesi, che l’autore presenta al Forum insieme all’amica scrittrice Teresa Ciabatti: la vita di Marco Carrera è fatta di continue sospensioni ma anche di coincidenze fatali, di perdite atroci e amori assoluti. Non precipita mai fino in fondo: il suo è un movimento incessante per rimanere fermo, saldo, e quando questo non è possibile, per trovare il punto d’arresto della caduta – perché sopravvivere non significhi vivere di meno. Intorno a lui, Veronesi costruisce altri personaggi indimenticabili, che abitano un’architettura romanzesca perfetta. Un mondo intero, in un tempo liquido che si estende dai primi anni settanta fino a un cupo futuro prossimo, quando all’improvviso splenderà il frutto della resilienza di Marco Carrera: è una bambina, si chiama Miraijin, e sarà l’uomo nuovo. Un romanzo potentissimo, che incanta e commuove, sulla forza struggente della vita.
Domenica 2 febbraio alle 18Pensieri ad alta voce diventati appunti scritti, che ora aprono i diciotto capitoli di Perché parlavo da solo (Rizzoli), il libro in cui Paolo Bonolis svela per la prima volta il suo mondo oltre lo schermo. Molto più di un’autobiografia, un diario intimo e ironico alla ricerca del senso della vita in cui il conduttore – tra i più amati – si interroga sul mondo, sulla felicità, sulla televisione, sullo stupore, sull’amore e la famiglia, sulla tecnologia che non rispetta i ritmi della biologia, sullo sport che è passione e su Roma. Riflessioni che svela nel volume e commenta per il pubblico del BPER Forum Monzani . Da sempre Bonolis, come racconta lui stesso, parla da solo per tornare sui suoi pensieri, elaborarli, rivoltarli. E’ nato così questo flusso appassionato e coinvolgente di ricordi, personaggi ed episodi, in cui l’autore sorprende i lettori con le sue domande ora poetiche ora al vetriolo: leggerezza e accettazione sono antibiotici per l’esistenza? Un amore è un dato oggettivo o un fiume di farfalle? Un libro da consegnare ai suoi figli e a tutti quelli che nel tempo l’hanno apprezzato o anche criticato.

FCNL Condemns Assassination, Urges Congress to Oppose Escalation of Deadly Conflict with Iran

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

In response to this week’s assassination of an Iranian military leader by the United States, Friends Committee on National Legislation’s Executive Secretary Diane Randall released the following statement:The Trump administration’s assassination of the military commander of Iran’s Quds Force is a dangerous escalation of the confrontation with Iran that will lead to more bloodshed, further destabilize Iraq, and expand conflict and instability throughout the Middle East.FCNL condemns the assassination of Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani and other pro-Iran militia leaders. We are opposed to all killings and condemn the killings of hundreds of Americans and other civilians by Iran’s Quds Force and their militia allies. The only way to de-escalate tensions and resolve our differences with Iran is through diplomacy.
As a Quaker organization, we hold firm to the faith that war is not the answer; neither is assassination or mass killings of innocent civilians. We believe the origin of this crisis lies with the Trump administration that has withdrawn from the international nuclear agreement with Iran, undermined diplomatic efforts, and escalated economic and military pressure on Iran. And with Congress’ failure to act to explicitly reject war with Iran and insist on diplomacy.
Make no mistake, Congress has not authorized war with Iran. But in December 2019, Congress struck language from a military policy bill that would have explicitly denied authorization for a war with Iran. That legislative language would have repealed the outdated 2002 Authorization for War with Iraq, which the administration may be using to provide legal cover for this assassination.Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Eliot Engel (NY), Sen. Chris Murphy (CT) and other members of Congress who have stated that Congress did not authorize this escalating war with Iran are correct. Congress should – as many members are already declaring – demand a full briefing on the attack and hold public hearings on the escalation of violent conflict with Iran. But Congress’ core concern should be stopping a destructive war. That is why we urge Congress to swiftly pass legislation taking away any legal justification and explicitly prohibiting funding for war.
Truly, these escalating acts of war will not end what has been an endless war in Iraq and other countries in the Middle East. This recent assassination will only unleash a new cycle of the deadly conflict at the cost of millions of peoples’ lives and livelihoods. It will be answered with violence and war, not peace.Congress has the power to stop the march to war with Iran and return our nation to the path of diplomacy and international engagement – that is the only way to prevent war. It must exercise its constitutional authority now.

ICANN and Verisign Announce Proposed Amendment to .COM Registry Agreement

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and VeriSign, Inc. (Verisign), the registry operator of the .COM top-level domain (TLD) today announced that they have reached a proposed agreement to amend the .COM Registry Agreement (RA). In addition, ICANN and Verisign announced a new proposed framework for working together on initiatives related to the security, stability and resiliency of the Domain Name System (DNS) in the form of a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) between the two organizations.Together, these agreements fulfill commitments that ICANN and Verisign made in 2016 when they previously amended the .COM RA. The new terms, which are now open for public comment, will enhance the security, stability and resiliency of the DNS; provide limited and transparent pricing flexibility for .COM registry services; and standardize the .COM RA by including certain technical and reporting requirements based on terms in other registry agreements between ICANN and the registry operators of other TLDs.Verisign’s operation of the .COM TLD is governed by two separate agreements: the .COM RA, and the Cooperative Agreement between Verisign and the U.S. Department of Commerce. In 2016, Verisign and ICANN formally agreed that if and when the Department of Commerce and Verisign made changes to the Cooperative Agreement, ICANN and Verisign would negotiate in good faith to ensure those changes were reflected in the .COM RA.On Oct. 26, 2018, following a review and deliberation by the U.S. Government, Verisign and the Department of Commerce entered into an amendment that included an extension of the Cooperative Agreement.
Under the amended Cooperative Agreement, the Department of Commerce noted that the domain name marketplace had grown more dynamic and concluded that it was in the public interest that, among other things, Verisign and ICANN may agree to amend the .COM Registry Agreement to permit an increase to the price for .COM registry services, up to a maximum of 7 percent in each of the final four years of each six-year period (the first six-year period commenced on Oct. 26, 2018). The proposed agreement announced today updates the .COM RA to reflect those changes. ICANN is not a price regulator and defers to the Department of Commerce and the U.S. Department of Justice for the regulation of pricing for .COM registry services.While Verisign does not set retail prices for .COM domain names, the proposed amendment to the .COM RA will provide pricing certainty by limiting the potential maximum wholesale price for .COM domain names. For example, if the four standard price increases are taken in this six-year period, the maximum wholesale price for .COM domain names would be $8.39 no earlier than Oct. 26, 2020 (compared to $7.85 today), and cannot exceed $10.26 until October 2026.In addition to aligning the pricing for .COM registry services with the Cooperative Agreement, the updated .COM RA and LOI achieve four additional important objectives:Alignment with certain technical and reporting obligations for the .COM TLD with those in the Base gTLD Registry AgreementIncorporation of commitments related to the implementation of the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) Formalization of a framework by which ICANN and Verisign will work together to support additional enhancements to security and stability of the DNS, including to help combat DNS security threats
Additional funding to ICANN to continue to conduct, facilitate and support activities that preserve and enhance the security and stability of the DNS, in support of Verisign’s and ICANN’s longstanding commitment in this area and ICANN’s core mission to ensure the stable and secure operation of the internet’s unique identifier systems
Because of the significance of the .COM TLD, these security, stability and resiliency enhancements will benefit internet users worldwide. The .COM TLD is an important part of the internet’s global addressing system, providing the foundation for hundreds of millions of websites, apps, email accounts and core internet infrastructure elements across the globe. The .COM TLD is an important part of global commerce, making its continued secure, stable and resilient operation a top priority for both ICANN and Verisign.These obligations expand on Verisign’s long-standing commitment to evolving and improving DNS security, stability and resiliency, through technical innovation, active participation in groups like ICANN’s Root Server System Advisory Committee and the Security and Stability Advisory Committee, as well as in Verisign’s role as root zone maintainer, and operator of two of the world’s 13 authoritative root servers. For more than 22 years, Verisign has maintained 100 percent operational accuracy and stability for the .COM DNS.ICANN facilitates the coordination of the 12 operators of the 13 authoritative root servers. These root servers are the foundation of the DNS. In keeping with ICANN’s mission to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global internet, a pillar of its 2021-2025 Strategic Plan is to strengthen the security of the DNS and the DNS Root Server System by partnering with relevant stakeholders to strengthen DNS root server operations governance and coordination; improve awareness of security threats to the DNS; and foster greater diversity of thought to best anticipate, respond to and mitigate potential threats.
