29th September ’22: World heart day

World Heart Day, celebrated on 29 September each year, is a global information and awareness campaign on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, promoted worldwide by the World Heart Federation through a community of over 200 national organizations that together support the commitment of the medical society and foundations for the heart in over 100 countries.

Cardio-cerebro vascular diseases are by far the leading cause of death in many countries of the world. They are responsible for 17.5 million premature deaths each year and are projected to increase to 23 million by 2030. In Italy 127,000 women and 98,000 men die each year from cardio-cerebrovascular diseases and many of these deaths occur prematurely before the age of 60. Cigarette smoking, high cholesterol levels, hypertension, high blood sugar levels, poor diet, weight and abdominal circumference, sedentary lifestyle, stress and living conditions in unhealthy environments are the modifiable risk factors responsible for at least 80 % of premature deaths caused by cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack, heart failure and stroke, which can be avoided.

World Heart Day adheres to the “25by25” campaign launched by the World Health Organization in 2012 to urge all countries of the world to put in place alliances and the best strategies to reduce, by 2025, 25% of premature deaths caused from chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diseases of the heart, blood vessels and diabetes.

In Italy, World Heart Day is coordinated by the Italian Foundation for the Heart Association, a national member of the World Heart Federation. In September and beyond there are many free events open to the public, with the distribution of information material, organized freely by hospitals, ASLs, patient associations, hospitals, public and private bodies to sensitize people to take care of their heart.

27th September (’22): World Tourism Day

World Tourism Day

Since 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organization has celebrated World Tourism Day as international observances on September 27. This date was chosen as on that day in 1970, the Statutes of the UNWTO were adopted. The adoption of these Statutes is considered a milestone in global tourism. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness on the role of tourism within the international community and to demonstrate how it affects social, cultural, political and economic values worldwide.

At its Twelfth Session in Istanbul, Turkey, in October 1997, the UNWTO General Assembly decided to designate a host country each year to act as the Organization’s partner in the celebration of World Tourism Day. At its Fifteenth Session in Beijing, China, in October 2003, the Assembly decided the following geographic order to be followed for World Tourism Day celebrations: 2006 in Europe; 2007 in South Asia; 2008 in the Americas; 2009 in Africa and 2011 in the Middle East.

The late Ignatius Amaduwa Atigbi, a Nigerian national, was the one who proposed the idea of marking September 27 of every year as World Tourism Day. He was finally recognized for his contribution in 2009. The colour of World Tourism Day is Blue.

LYRIC

My head says I should be leaving
But my heart don’t want me to go
You play me hot and cold like a fever
And my love runs out of control

It feels like I’m drowning
There’s poison in my blood
I wanna be on it
Every piece of you
Know I should be running
You put me up in chains
I had it coming

‘Cause every time my head says I should be leaving
But my heart don’t want me to go
You play me hot and cold like a fever
And my love runs out of control, out of control
Out of control

‘Cause every time my head says I should be leaving
But my heart don’t want me to go
You play me hot and cold like a fever
And my love runs out of control, out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control

‘Cause every time my head says I should be leaving
But my heart don’t want me to go
You play me hot and cold like a fever
And my love runs out of control, out of control

WhatsApp: links for calls arrive! Here’s how the new feature works

WhatsApp: links for calls arrive
Nuove funzioni di WhatsApp

Among the various improvements in the pipeline for WhatsApp in this period, as well as for voice there are also for calls and video calls.

The latest beta of WhatsApp for Android, 2.22.5.4, contains “” under the skin “, that is hidden in the code, an addition that always concerns calls and video calls, although this time not from a visual point of view, but functional The datamining of the beta conducted by WABetainfo has in fact made it possible to discover a function that already exists in the code, even if it is still dormant, and therefore not yet accessible to users: we are talking about the possibility of creating links for calls and video calls.

The screenshot above clearly shows an unprecedented option to invite WhatsApp users to join a call, namely the creation of a link. Nothing revolutionary, but it is still an important addition, since it allows you to invite more people without them being present in your contact list: it will be enough to generate a call link and then share it.

The function can, in some ways, remember the integration with Messenger Rooms through a link, then removed: but if on the Messenger Room anyone can enter a session, even without having a Facebook account, with the new link it will still be necessary to have a WhatsApp account to take part in a call, which will then be protected by end-to-end encryption.

In short, it is a feature that aims to extend and simplify the scenarios of use of calls and video calls beyond today’s borders, but always remaining within a certain perimeter of protection. At the moment, however, we do not know when this feature will be introduced at least in beta, but the works are in progress and seem already well defined: to the eye it shouldn’t take long.

b) How many instead should there be?
The United Nations General Assembly declared International Day in December 2013, in Resolution A / RES / 68/32, following the General Assembly’s high-level meeting on nuclear disarmament, held on 26 September 2013.
NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 26 – This year United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres wanted to launch a message on the occasion of the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, at a time when the atomic threat seems to return to agitate the political scene international background to the war in Ukraine. “We reject the statement that defines nuclear disarmament as an impossible utopian dream – said Guterres forcefully – The elimination of these instruments of death is not only possible, but also absolutely necessary. In the current context, characterized by growing geopolitical division, mistrust and outright aggression, we risk forgetting the terrible lessons of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the Cold War, and provoking a humanitarian Armageddon “.

♬ Robbie Williams – Lost

LYRIC

I wake up, terrifying myself again
Caked in makeup and a little lost
These reactions are relentless
Abandoning the permafrost
Who am I fooling? Well, I got a list
I disappoint them only to exist
I lost my place in life
I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When I lost my faith in you
A walk-up of my masterpiece
To the nothingness greeting me
Everything smells like sympathy
Who am I fooling? Well, I got a list
Much too exhausted only to resist
I lost my place in life
I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When I lost my faith in you
I lost all hope
I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When I lost my faith in you
All my friends say
“Don’t give up yet
Might still get there”
But I don’t think so
Ooh, impress me (try)
Ooh, impress me (try)
I lost my place in life
I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When I lost my faith in you
I lost all hope
I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When, I lost my faith in you
I lost all hope
When I lost my point of view
I lost what it is to love
When I lost my faith in you
