They rise high above the roofs of Venice, offering an absolutely amazing, breathtaking view of the city, and they mark the time that slips away but never dies. There are over one hundred bell towers between downtown Venice and the islands. In , it collapsed leaving only the main bell, the so-called Marangona, standing. It rises alone in a corner of Piazza San Marco, opposite the Church, and features a simple architectural structure consisting of a fluted brick square shaft, above which is a loggia surrounding the belfry.
The belfry is topped by a cube whose faces show the Lion of St. Mark and the female representation of Venice Justice. The tower is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden weathervane in the form of the archangel Gabriel. According to tradition, Paulinus 5th century , Bishop of Nola, was the first to use bells in Christian services, although the first documented report dates back to and was provided by Gregory of Tours who testified to the use of bells placed in a belfry to call the congregation together.
However, it was not until the 8th century that the use of bells became widespread, when Pope Stephen had a bell tower housing three bells built in St. Maria dei Miracoli e poco distante di S. Ci sono, invece, situazioni in cui il campanile veniva costruito a ridosso della chiesa o addirittura incorporato da altri edifici come quello di S.
Sofia, mentre altri si trovavano staccati da essa.
Udiamo questo gentile e cortese din, don, dan venire anche da altri campanili: In Venice, many bell towers were demolished during the s, while others fell down in the years of the Republic of Venice, some of which were rebuilt and others not. The sight-catching thing about them is that they are all different. Just take a walk along Strada Nuova to catch the differences between the bell towers of S. Maria dei Miracoli and S. What they have in common is the classic structure, featuring tower and belfry, although in some cases, such as the tower of SS. Some bell towers were built next to the church or even incorporated in other buildings, such as S.
Some are more leaning than others, like the bell tower of the church of San Giorgio dei Greci, in the Castello neighborhood. You can hear the sweet sound of the bells ringing from the towers of San Salvador, San Giacomo di Rialto, San Giovanni Elemosinario and, last but not least, San Giorgio, on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, which is one of the highest in Venice 75 meters and offers an extraordinary view of the city and surrounding lagoon.
Il volto regolare, bello, gli occhi di ghiaccio di Michael Fassbender. Pochi anni fa, Michael tentava di farsi notare a un provino per Casino Royale. Nel settembre , a Venezia, alzava al cielo la coppa Volpi come miglior attore. Tutti pazzi per Michael. Poi lo vuole di nuovo per Shame. Ma che sfocia nel risultato contrario. Michael appare nudo in scena, full frontal. Ha solo trentacinque anni. Madre irlandese, padre tedesco. Fa tanta gavetta, fino a quel giorno del in cui conquista la parte dello spartano Stelios in Poi, la Coppa Volpi alzata al cielo a Venezia.
Michael Fassbender was the icon of the last editions of the Venice Film Festival. His face is regular and beautiful with diamod eyes. A few years ago Michael went for an audition for Casino Royale but he was rejected. In September in Venice he lifted the Volpi Cup for the best actor.
Everybody went crazy for him. In Steve Mcqueen, the London director with African origin specialized in art videos, chose him to play the leading role in Hunger that tells the time Bobby Sands spent in jail and the hunger strike that brought to his death. Then he wants him to play the protagonist of Shame where Fassbender is a brilliant, rich sex addicted executive who losers his soul with pornography and prostitutes. Sex is an addiction and a therapy against fear, anguish and solitude. The result will be opposite. Michael is filmed naked and full front.
He is not a muscle man but he is the prototype of the new glam sex. He got a lot of applauses in Venice. If the movie game could have mixed together the two films, his character in Shame would have been a patient of the psychoanalyst that he was playing in the other film. He is only thirty five. He was born in Heidelberg, Germany, the small University town in the heart of the former West Germany from an Irish mother and a German father.
He moves early to Ireland where he grows up in the Kerry County. His parents managed a restaurant in Killarney. His mother language is Irish, though he can speak German fluently. His elder sister is a neuro psychiatrist. Ci sono molte scene di nudo. Ma non le trovo innaturali. Io non ho mai tenuto una pistola in mano nella mia vita, eppure nei film sembra normale.
Sa di essere diventato un sex symbol mondiale?

If you were given the chance to meet face to face with your worst enemy, what would you say? What would I say to them? That bad manners are not in the least chic. What do you do to relax?

A self-produced album created with the help of well-known musicians, featuring songs full of grace. My personal experience and that of the people I work with. By analyzing our feelings, I tried to set to music the many ways these apply to life.
This album is closely associated with love, I tried to universalize my personal experience, to bring it closer to everyone. Your first thought upon waking up this morning? One Italian date only: Un grande luogo per un grande uomo che insieme a tre amici ha inventato dal nulla la musica pop. Un evento speciale dunque, uno degli appuntamenti di punta della stagione rock mondiale. Sir Paul si lancia nel a vele spiegate dopo un che lo ha visto concludere il suo On The Run Tour con cui ha rotto ogni record: Con un nuovo 70 Venezia made in Veneto.

A great place for a great man who along with three friends invented pop music out of nothing The highly anticipated Paul McCartney concert to be held on June 25, in the city of Romeo and Juliet will be the only one in the Old World to be hosted in a historical location. This was until the announcement of the Out there tour dates in Europe which include only three as well as Italy, there is Warsaw and Vienna.
The concert is three hours long, reliving some of the greatest moments in the music of the past fifty years, and for many, this music has been the soundtrack to their lives. Sir Paul is launched full sail in after a that saw him finish his On The Run tour which broke all records: With a new album in the works and the Out.
La data del 25 giugno , segna la sua terza volta nel Veneto. La location di quello storico concerto, non era altro che la straordinaria Piazza San Marco a Venezia. Grazie per le tue lezioni eterne di eleganza, Paul McCartney. The date of June 25, marks his third time in the Veneto area. The first Beatle to perform in Italy after the legendary concert of at the Velodrome in Milan, Paul McCartney returned to our country with the Wings concert alongside the inseparable first wife Linda, September 25 of six years after the Beatles broke up and five years after the difficult beginning of Wings , for a charity performance in favour of UNESCO, and the location of that historic concert was none other than the amazing Piazza San Marco in Venice.
Twenty-five years passed before Veneto hosted him again and Venice will be doing the honours again not as a rock star, but as a producer, vocalist and composer of the music for Tuesday, an out of competition cartoon at the Venice Film Festival of Italy, however, is part of his life, given that, a year ago, for his 70th birthday he was born June 15, , the baronet of Rock had an absolutely private and guarded birthday party at a resort in the Siena countryside, celebrated in grand style with third wife, Nancy Shevell, children Heather, Stella, James and Mary, and his closest friends, including former Beatle Ringo Starr.
This unusual man has talent to burn as a composer, and bearing witness are not only his immortal songs and masterpieces.

What do you remember of the years spent here? They sold typical Venetian products: And, though the business was successful, I ran away as soon as I got the chance to become a photographer.
In Paris… Yes, it was a leap in the dark. I was married and had two children already but, luckily, after three years of working my way up, things began to click. Thanks to my wife, who has supported me from the very beginning. It was easier back then, those were the years of the economic boom, just about anybody could find a job. In the beginning, I worked as a waiter, then as receptionist at the Hotel de Paris from 7am to 1pm, then I took pictures.

Mr Nolan used his speech to the Asia Pacific oil and gas conference in Adelaide today to debunk the theory of peak oil, which suggests oil supplies have peaked and will dwindle over the next 20 years. Such predictions, he said, had been around since the s, particularly at times of high oil prices. Read the rest at: Arriva un'altra delle folli segnalazioni che girano su Internet.

Commento ricevuto da Fabrizio Argonauta La popolazione degli Stati Uniti sta per raggiungere il numero di Alarm sounds on US population boom; Report says growth threatens resources Date: Thursday, August 31, Source: Boston Globe US Author: The Northeast remains by far the most densely populated region of the nation, but it also had the slowest population growth in the country during the s, including a 2 percent population reduction in urban areas, said the Center for Environment and Population, a Connecticut-based nonprofit research organization that produced the report.
In contrast, the South and the West were booming, creating new pressure on fragile environments and water sources. For the first time, the report compared national and regional population trends with environmental indicators, highlighting stresses that growing populations are placing on nature, according to the report and outside analysts.
While some researchers focus on alarming fertility rates in poor countries, which grew by Europe during that time grew by , people, or less than 1 percent. The US population boom was attributed to high birth rates, immigration, and increased longevity. Americans consume like no other nation -- using three times the amount of water per capita than the world average and nearly 25 percent of the world's energy, despite having 5 percent of the global population; and producing five times more daily waste than the average in poor countries.
One of the most alarming findings was that baby boomers -- those born between and , about 26 percent of the US population -- were not downsizing as their children became adults and moved out. Instead, many have moved into bigger houses or bought vacation properties, and the tally of homes with space greater than 3, square feet went up 11 percent from to Despite a relatively small migration from urban areas, the Northeast continued to feel the pressures of development. The report said that elevated ozone levels make Maine's Acadia National Park the fifth-most polluted park in the country, and air pollution has damaged 30 percent of Vermont's upland forests.
But the booming South and West regions show some of the most dramatic environmental stresses, according to the report. For example, the four fastest-growing states -- Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah -- all have areas of acute water shortages. Martha Farnsworth Riche , a former US Census Bureau director and a current fellow at Cornell University's Center for the Study of Society and Economy , believes that US population increases are partly to blame for environmental headaches attributed to global warming.

Sull'onda dell'abbassamento dei prezzi del petrolio ieri meno di 67 dollari al barile e delle notizie dal Golfo del Messico, Business Week ci informa che era un falso allarme, di petrolio ne abbiamo in abbondanza. Da notare come, all'inizio, dice che la teoria del picco del petrolio "E' vicina a diventare saggezza convenzionale".
Ma Prudhoe Bay conteneva 25 miliardi di barili in una zona relativamente facile da sfruttare. Fate un po voi il conto se sei miliardi bastano a spostare il picco in avanti di "decenni" come dice qui. Segue il testo originale http: Peak Oil is the theory, on the verge of becoming conventional wisdom, that the world's petroleum supply is topping out and will not be able to meet global demand soaring along with the economies of China and India. But a successful test in a mammoth field deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico, announced on Sept.
One huge oil reserve, even if it could rival the discovery of Prudhoe Bay and increase U. It won't even bring the U. But the capability to find and recover petroleum at extreme depths, temperatures, and pressures, as demonstrated by the Chevron team, may indeed tip the balance of supply and demand in the long term. There will be a new frenzy of drilling at these depths in the Gulf of Mexico, where about a dozen promising exploration wells have already been drilled.
Other parts of the world that once appeared beyond the pale may also come into play. Areas believed to have oil deposits extremely deep beneath the ocean floor, which could now become commercially recoverable, include the North Sea off the coast of Britain, the Nile River Delta off the coast of Egypt, and possibly coastal Brazil, says Andrew Latham, a vice-president at energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie in Edinburgh, Scotland. Other analysts say West Africa could harbor lots of ultra-deep deposits.
The areas have produced oil before but never from these depths. The record-setting Chevron well, called Jack 2, which is miles off the Louisiana coast, is more than five miles deep, including more than a mile of ocean depth. The drilling was the work of an advanced deep-sea rig—Transocean Inc. Earlier drilling had established promising reserves in an area of the Gulf miles long and 80 miles wide, but the Chevron project found a flow rate of more than 6, bbl. The discovery confirmed the area's commercial viability, strengthening hopes that as much as 15 billion barrels of oil could be recovered in the vicinity.
Steel and skilled labor rates are going through the roof, as are rental rates for state-of-the-art offshore rigs. That's because these fancy rigs, which house people and rise feet into the air, are in short supply with drilling picking up. Simmons, chairman of an energy investment bank bearing his name and one of the leading proponents of Peak Oil, is sticking to his guns. Simmons says the deep wells are "unbelievably expensive" and often fall short of expectations. It's pushing hard to produce oil and gas from difficult tar sand and shale fields as well as rejuvenating older fields with enhanced recovery methods.
Esser, a director of CERA: Inoltre, sul NY times annunciano una scoperta che sembra seria. The discovery, in the deepest water yet explored in the Gulf, could be the biggest domestic oil field since the northern Alaska field opened a generation ago. The new field's location near the coast of the United States makes it particularly attractive, said J. Larry Nichols, the chairman of Devon Energy Corporation of Oklahoma City, which holds a 25 percent interest in the find.
The discovery "could not have happened in a better place," he said in a news conference. The prospective yield of the area, called the lower Tertiary, could approach six billion barrels of oil, Devon said. The other owner, with a 25 percent interest, is Statoil of Norway. Chevron owns 50 percent. Statoil said the test results were "very encouraging and may indicate a significant discovery. Chevron said the well, known as Jack 2, and located miles southwest of New Orleans, produced a "sustained flow rate of more than 6, barrels of crude oil per day" in a production test.
The company said it found the oil producing formation about 20, feet below the bottom of the Gulf, with the well drilled to a total depth of 28, feet. Dall "Independent" del 3 Settembre un'altra storia che rovescia tutti i paradigmi accettati finora. I prezzi degli alimentari sono in aumento e si teme che la situazione vada a peggiorare. Non aiutano, anzi fanno enormi danni, sia la diffusione di allevamenti di bovini per il mercato del fast food, sia la diffusione degli "energy crops" per la produzione di combustibili. Siamo di fronte a una catastrofe alimentare che potrebbe farci ricordare le carestie degli anni '70 come delle prove di dieta a punti.
The hungry planet As stocks run out and harvests fail, the world faces its worst crisis for 30 years By Geoffrey Lean Published: New figures show that this year's harvest will fail to produce enough to feed everyone on Earth, for the sixth time in the past seven years. Humanity has so far managed by eating its way through stockpiles built up in better times - but these have now fallen below the danger level. Food prices have already started to rise as a result, and threaten to soar out of reach of many of the 4.
And the new "green" drive to get cars to run on biofuels threatens to make food even scarcer and more expensive. The FAO is still compiling its latest crop forecast - due to be published next month - but told The Independent on Sunday late last week that it looked like barely exceeding 2 billion tons, down from 2. The USDA estimates it will be even lower - 1.webdisk.amosautomotive.com/cija-plaquenil-e-azitromicina.php
Moscow faces global oil backlash
This would mean that it would fall 58 million tons short of what the world's people are expected to consume this year: The world's food stocks have shrunk from enough to feed the world for days in to a predicted 57 days at the end of this season, well below the official safety level. Prices have already risen by up to 20 per cent this year. The gathering crisis has been largely unnoticed because, for once, the harvests have failed in rich countries such as the United States and Australia, which normally export food, rather than in the world's hungriest ones. So it has not immediately resulted in mass starvation in Africa or Asia.
Instead, it will have a delayed effect as poor people become increasingly unable to afford expensive food and find that there is not enough in store to help them when their own crops fail. The lack of world attention contrasts with the last great food crisis, in the mids. Then Henry Kissinger - at the height of his powers as Richard Nixon's Secretary of State - called a World Food Conference, in which governments solemnly resolved that never again would they allow humanity to run short of sustenance.
The conference, in Rome, resolved to eradicate hunger by the mids. Kissinger himself pledged that "within a decade, no child should go hungry to bed". Yet, a generation later, more than million people worldwide are still constantly hungry. Every day, some 16, young children die, at least partly because they do not get enough food.
And the new food crisis threatens to be even worse than the last one. In the seven years running up to the Rome conference grain production fell below consumption only three times, compared to six now. It was at the conference that I first met Lester Brown, who has, ever since, been the principal prophet of the coming scarcity, repeatedly warning of the new crisis which is now upon us. Brown - who now heads the Earth Policy Institute, a respected Washington-based think tank - gleaned his first insights into the world's predicament as a tomato tycoon when he was a teenager. Soon the brothers were among the top 1 per cent of tomato growers in the United States.
They easily qualified for the Ten-Ton Tomato Club - "the Phi Beta Kappa of tomato growers" - which is open to those who harvested that amount per acre. Then Campbell's Soups, trying to lower costs, threw money into research to increase yields. Within a few years, the club had to change its name to the Twenty-Ton Tomato Club. But the pace of improvement could not be sustained. Despite decades of more research growth of yields slowed dramatically; by the mid- s the best growers were getting about 30 tons of tomatoes per acre.
That, says Brown, is what has been happening to the world's harvests as a whole. Between and grain yields more than doubled, but they have grown much more slowly since. Production rose from around million tons to 1. But now the world has suffered a dramatic loss of momentum. But this, too, has been running into the buffers. As population grows and farmland is used for building roads and cities - and becomes exhausted by overuse - the amount available for each person on Earth has fallen by more than half.
There are more than five people on Earth today for every two living in the middle of the last century. Yet enough is produced worldwide to feed everyone well, if it is evenly distributed.

It is not just that people in rich countries eat too much, and those in poor ones eat too little. Enormous quantities of the world's increasingly scarce grain now goes to feed cows - and, indirectly, cars. The cows are longstanding targets of Brown's, who founded the prestigious Worldwatch Institute immediately after the conference, partly to draw attention to the precariousness of food supplies. As people become better-off, they eat more meat, the animals that are slaughtered often being fed on grain.
It takes 14kg of grain to produce 2kg of beef, and 8kg of grain for 2kg of pork. More than a third of the world's harvest goes to fatten animals in this way. Cars are a new concern, the worry arising from the present drive to produce green fuels to fight global warming. A "corn rush" has erupted in the United States, using the crop to produce the biofuel, ethanol - strongly supported by subsidies from the Bush administration to divert criticism of its failure to ratify the Kyoto Protocol. Just a single fill of ethanol for a four-wheel drive SUV, says Brown, uses enough grain to feed one person for an entire year.
This year the amount of US corn going to make the fuel will equal what it sells abroad; traditionally its exports have helped feed - mostly poor - countries. From next year, the amount used to run American cars will exceed exports, and soon it is likely to reduce what is available to help feed poor people overseas. The number of ethanol plants built or planned in the corn-belt state of Iowa will use virtually all the state's crop.
