BELLUNO SOLIDARITY ON AIR

BELLUNO SOLIDARITY ON AIR

ANG in Radio #morethanbefore Belluno Solidarity on Air is the 100% Belluno Web Radio dedicated to solidarity thanks to funds from the National Youth Agency.

Belluno Solidarity On Air is therefore the voice of the guys from the Keep Calm & Go Volunteering project who were kind enough to host me in one of their podcasts!

In case you want to listen to us, you can find the podcast in the first comment.

Listening to my voice again I wonder how those who hear it perennially can bear me laughing

However, it seems that the feeling that leads to disowning or almost despising one’s own voice is quite widespread, and reading the causes explained by Focus I discovered a nice tweet by Giuliano Sangiorgi from Negramaro who tells how the first few times he didn’t even recognize himself and I was a little relieved.

On the other hand, the importance of hearing the volunteers explain their project and tell about the whole series of initiatives and activities they carry out is undoubted.

I am so very happy with this experience.

For this I thank them warmly for how they welcomed me and for the friendship that grows under the sign of our Keep Calm.

From their Committee of Understanding a fantastic understanding was born which has One more cup of coffee as its soundtrack  and an exchange of interesting and valuable tips as a common thread.

In reiterating the esteem I have for them, I once again congratulate them on their work.

To Ariela, Edisona, Hamudi, Lorenzo, Mehdi, Sophie, Veronica I dedicate:

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.

THE NEW YORK TIMES MOVES HONG KONG EDITORIAL

THE NEW YORK TIMES MOVES HONG KONG EDITORIAL

The news given on the official website of The New York Times, was reported by all the press, and in particular also by Tom Grundy: blogger and founder of Hong Wrong  closed in 2015 for the new job of editor in chief by HONG KONG FREE PRESS (HKFP) 

The reason for the transfer of part of the NYT editorial staff from Hong Kong to Seoul lies in the new Chinese national security law in Hong Kong launched on July 1st: the twenty-third anniversary of the change of flag in Hong Kong.

Carrie Lam, chief executive of Hong Kong said that the new law is not doom and gloom , but rather mild, compared to the laws in China.

Meanwhile, this law will be based on the same principle of vagueness as Chinese law and has been announced as a real Sword of Damocles on the heads of those who threaten national security.

For this reason, the group of young pro-democracy activists originally part of Scholarism within the Umbrella Revolution, merged into Demosisto, name chosen by joining

the Greek word Demos = people

and the Latin word Sixtus understood as standing a little to say those whom resist

decided to dissolve “under the circumstances.”

The announcement was published with a tweet on behalf of the most famous and representative faces: Joshua Wong, Nathan Law, Jeffrey Ngo and Agnes Chow.

About a year ago an arrest with scare tactits had already started for them.

Amnesty International called their arrest an “outrageous assault on freedom of expression”.

I have already mentioned Evelyn Beatrice Hall, on the other hand Benjamin Franklin teaches us that “Anyone who wants to take away the freedom of a nation must start prohibiting freedom of speech.”

We should NEVER underestimate the importance of free expression, and let’s not forget these guys.

HOW COULD INTERSTELLAR COFFEE BE?

HOW COULD INTERSTELLAR COFFEE BE?

We are quite used to Elon Musk’s statements about his visions of future, the latest in order of time foresees one million people on Mars by 2050.
This estimate originated from a quick tweet format calculation in response to a detractor.
Textually: “Starship design goal is 3 flights / day avg rate, so ~ 1000 flights / year at> 100 tons / flight, so every 10 ships yield 1 megaton per year to orbit. Building 100 Starships / year gets to 1000 in 10 years or 100 megatons / year or maybe around 100k people for Earth-Mars orbital sync.”
So the plan would be to build 100 Starships per year.
Meanwhile, SpaceX, in order to test the safety of the Crew Dragon capsule and to have the authorization to fly with astronauts on board, carried out a test intentionally destroying rocket Falcon 9 which crashed into the ocean off the coast of Florida.
However, while waiting to solve the problem of making the red planet livable, the closest target is the moon by 2022 to ensure the resources for people who according to the Artemis project should remain there for 5/6 days in 2024.
So I would tell: save the date.
Let’s see if these years 20s of ours will be out of orbit and let’s try to imagine what format but above all what taste the interstellar coffee will have.
