Running in the wild

July 16, 2008 4 comments

Armed with my trusty iPhone this time (instead of the iPod) I went in my part to run a little 'to get out and a bit' to maintain a minimum level of physical fitness.

A person dear to me once told me:
"Run and all the things will start to run ..."

Surely he is right, but yesterday I had a feeling running a bit 'different ... I run and still others are: back.
I lose some, others find it ... and I'm fine ...

I admire those who run around a plant or an oval doing endless laps boring, but I can not go through the fields, including the fields of my city in complete freedom, and run ...

... And run free!

"Faith" in YamamaY ...

April 14, 2008 No comments

Finally ... after months of insistence against my colleague, I managed to convince him to take me with him to see a lot of his female cousin who plays volleyball at A1!

The team in question is YamamaY of Busto Arsizio.

Tumultuous journey by train deleted and "diversion" from our side of a bus with a driver rather bizarre but friendly and helpful (we will have probably done the sentence) in making us fall in the vicinity of this building seemingly unattainable (Palayamamay).

The match was really compelling despite the odds favored totally gave Despar Perugia, half the week before ages recovering from a major victory in the international (European champions). The final result was 3-2 to Perugia, but that effort!

Point by point ... all played in just minutes a tie-break final 16-14 for the bad guys (I tifavo rightly YamamaY).

Admittedly, in the end it was just to be missed!
Let me explain: It is possible to remove the last point, the decisive one, number 4? Oh no ... he was going to win ... removed ... lost! We had "faith" in YamamaY, really great "Faith"!

It does not matter, it was a good game, a nice evening and a good reason to give the coup de grace to my voice and my throat that were, unfortunately for me, already at the limit!

The return of the playoffs, saw a defeat clearer now ... alas YamamaY is right out of the game ... but at least I was there! If you do not believe ...


Thanks to me for having forced / convinced my colleague, and thank you girls for the lovely evening!

The politometro

March 27, 2008 4 comments

Oh Jesus!

Pardon the expletive but I remained astonished by the outcome of the tests I've done, precisely the test politometro.

A test that evaluates the political orientation of a subject through 15 multiple choice questions.

You can test by simply clicking here (sponsored by Repubblica.it).


Here's what I came out:

polimetro


Of course, it should be noted that the test is based on questions (or statements) strong (in my opinion) that easily answered with excesses (categorical categorical yes or no), and therefore fails to give an accurate assessment ... but it's a play fun.

That's why I could not vote

How would Caesar Cesaroni ... "that bitterness!"

As you can imagine not vote in elections for a political party, a preference card that, in theory, should govern for the next term and decide the fate of our country?

"Voting is a right, and first and foremost duty of every citizen of this nation"

That's what I always thought, and that until a few weeks ago I would have argued strenuously with the firm conviction of being right reasoning.

But now I'm lost, completely lost.

Not only do I identify with a political figure in the running for the top spot of the podium, which would already be a fact of success, but there is not a single person among the candidates or parties which do not try what some form of disgust / repulsion.

I've always been opposed to the extreme, then consider the idea of ​​giving a preference to the outer sides is out of my range. So we eliminate the extreme right, the group Storanchè (Storace-Santanchè), and the mixture multicolored called Rainbow I think.

The reasons:

Storanchè ... lack of expertise and professionalism, and I do not want to bring up descriptions of the characters.

Bertinotti and his party are anachronistic to me, still the 60s and affordable solutions that encourage the increase of the minimum wage to € 1,100 per month. Rather idiotic move because they result in empirically reduction of staff by businesses for being subject to a minimum roof or, in the case of this increase was supported by the State, would result in an increase in public spending by pushing up inflation and then make a record wage increase only nominal and not real (loss of purchasing power).

The greens, the brake of economic development of a country. Where are they can not build anything even when the collective good exceeds their mania to save puppies, plants and stones. "Supporting good ideals is right, cling to ideals is stupid silly"

The "big" center Casini pick up the pieces here and there and does not have a concrete program if not at the point in favor of nuclear energy. However establish an election on a point-to long-term (10 years at least) is less than utopian. Right idea, wrong time, the tools and the inability to involve other political forces on the big energy problem in this period.

Democratic Party, the Democratic Party, the party with tremendous momentum ... just against everything, a real significant trend, lost very soon including the good old Di Pietro and the Radicals. Again jumble? It makes no sense ... a party "denistra" (left-right) who still do not quite understand whether it wants to be positioned to the left or right. Well maybe this one, so you do not live more than historical legacies related to the historical concept of the Right and the Left in Italy.

Why not run alone keeping their program without no compromise with other parties? It would have been decided about the right ...

PDL, the People of Freedom. Nominate a candidate for prime minister a man already the fifth time? A man who was defeated by the last election? But what's the point? Where the spirit of innovation that would have to ride the scions of the new policy?
I did not want to repeat the various discourses anti-Berlusconi, who tied many people to make trinofare (a few votes) coalition (Olive) who willingly or unwillingly gave birth (or continuity depends on your point of view) to a phenomenon of constant and unrelenting distrust of the electorate in the political world.

What should I vote? How can I vote these people?
Regardless of what will be my choice, we will not have a strong power to govern, but again favors mediation between factions and factious.
Regardless of what will be my choice, I know that I will remain disappointed.

The vote is not wrong, but the vote each of these alternatives seem even more wrong.

I just feel lost.

Bitterness that ...!
