Sabaudia (Latina) [1] – PHOTO October

Sabaudia is a small town located on the coast of the province of Latina, south of Rome. Nearby there are also lakes that make it very humid, but on the other hand they are quite uncontaminated. I visited it on a sunny day in early October, when the cold is still not coming.

Sweden: Here is the electric bus that recharges from the street with the wireless charging system under the road surface

ElectReon (TASE: ELWS.TA), a leader in the development of on-road wireless charging technology for electric vehicles – commercial, public transport and passenger, today announced the launch of the first fully operational bus using the Dell’s wireless charging infrastructure. company in the city of Visby on the island of Gotland, Sweden.

After a long test phase with some trucks, which were able to absorb up to 70 kW at a speed of 80 km / h, with 90% efficiency, a public transport bus took service, also in Gotland, in the city of Visby. The bus works the same way, and runs on an electrified test road, covering the line that has been called “Smartroad Gotland”.

The vehicle therefore does not need to be recharged at columns or pantograph connections from the top, but takes all the necessary energy from the road, through various receptors located in the part below the floor.

The architects of the technology are the engineers of ElectReon, a company based in Israel, which deals with both the drowning of the charging system in the street and the systems on board vehicles. It is not the only successful project for ElectReon, which already has collaborations in Italy, France, Belgium and Germany, as well as Tel Aviv.

Once the tests with the bus have also been validated, it should move to the large-scale construction, according to the original project, which foresees over 2,000 km of electrified roads in Sweden by 2030, to achieve zero emissions by 2045.

26th October (2021): Intersex Awareness Day

Intersex Awareness Day is an internationally observed awareness day each October 26, designed to highlight human rights issues faced by intersex people.

The event marks the first public demonstration by intersex people in North America, on October 26, 1996, outside the venue in Boston where the American Academy of Pediatrics was holding its annual conference. Intersex activists Morgan Holmes and Max Beck participated for the (now-defunct) Intersex Society of North America, alongside allies from Transsexual Menace including Riki Wilchins. Holmes has written that the event was intended not as a demonstration but as participation in the conference. She states that Beck and Holmes had intended to deliver an address, “on long-term outcomes and to challenge their still-prevailing opinion that cosmetic surgery to “fix” intersexed genitals was the best course of action”, but were “met, officially, with hostility and were escorted out of the conference by security guards”. The group only later demonstrated, carrying a sign saying “Hermaphrodites With Attitude”.

The commemoration day itself began in 2003 with the establishment of a central awareness raising site by Betsy Driver and Emi Koyama.A central awareness raising site was later re-established in 2015 by Morgan Carpenter with Laura Inter of Brújula Intersexual, and support from Open Society Foundations.

Intersex Awareness Day is an international day of grass-roots action to end shame, secrecy and unwanted genital cosmetic surgeries on intersex children. The day also provides an opportunity for reflection and political action. Between October 26 and November 8, intersex organizations bring attention to the challenges intersex individuals face, culminating in the Intersex Day of Remembranceon November 8, the birthday of Herculine Barbin, also sometimes known as Intersex Solidarity Day.

♬ Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd – Moth To A Flame

LYRIC

Like a moth to a flame
I’ll pull you in, I’ll pull you back to
What you need initially
It’s just one call away
And you’ll leave him, you’re loyal to me
But this time I’ll let you be

‘Cause he seems like he’s good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say, “He’s the one”
His love for you is true

But does he know you call me when he sleeps?
Or does he know the pictures that you keep?
Or does he know the reasons that you cry?
Or tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies?

Yeah, you should be with him, I let you go from time
You should stay with him

‘Cause he seems like he’s good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say, “He’s the one”
His love for you is true

But does he know you call me when he sleeps?
Or does he know the pictures that you keep?
Or does he know the reasons that you cry?
Or tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies?

Right here with me, baby
Where it truly lies
My baby
Where it truly lies
Give me all of it
Where it truly lies

Where it truly lies

Where it truly lies

Where it truly lies

Prehistory: chronological evolution does not lead to the evolution of society

iilustration of Pawel Kuczysnki

The illusion of thinking that chronological progress leads to social progress implies a conformity on the indifference of social values. Television often symbolizes a departure from reality in which the viewer places ideals unconsciously to simplify reality and society, which are increasingly pungent and stressful in their complexity.
Primitive man used the cudgel to fight and use violence. Today, however, the cudgel is represented by language, which more and more often takes on the contours of violence, especially in a world where communication is everything (or almost …)

25th October (2021): Retrocession Day [Taiwan]

Retrocession Day is the name given to the annual observance and unofficial holiday and former public holiday in Taiwan to commemorate the end of Japanese rule of Taiwan and Penghu, and the claimed retrocession (“return”) of Taiwan to the Republic of China on October 25, 1945. However, the idea of “Taiwan retrocession” is in dispute.

Chief Executive of Taiwan Province Chen I (right) accepting the receipt of Order No. 1 signed by Rikichi Andō (left), the last Japanese Governor-General of Taiwan, on behalf of the Republic of China Armed Forces at Taipei City Hall.

Taiwan, then more commonly known to the Western world as “Formosa”, became a colony of the Empire of Japan when the Qing Empire lost the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894 and ceded the island with the signing of the 1895 Treaty of ShimonosekiJapanese rule in Taiwan lasted until the end of World War II.

In November 1943, Chiang Kai-shek took part in the Cairo Conference with Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, who firmly advocated that Japan be required to return all of the territory it had annexed into its empire, including Taiwan and the Penghu (Pescadores) Islands. Article 8 of the Potsdam Proclamation, drafted by the United StatesUnited KingdomSoviet Union and China in July 1945, reiterated that the provisions of the Cairo Declaration be thoroughly carried out, and the Japanese Instrument of Surrender stated Japan’s agreement to the terms of the Potsdam Proclamation.

Under the authorization of American General Douglas MacArthur‘s General Order No. 1Chen I (Chief Executive of Taiwan Province) was escorted by George Kerr to Taiwan to accept the Japanese government’s surrender as the Chinese delegate. When the Japanese surrendered at the end of World War II, General Rikichi Andōgovernor-general of Taiwan and commander-in-chief of all Japanese forces on the island, signed an instrument of surrender and handed it over to governor-general of Taiwan Chen I, representing the Republic of China Armed Forces to complete the official turnover in Taipei (known during occupation as Taihoku) on October 25, 1945, at Taipei City Hall (now Zhongshan Hall). Chen Yi proclaimed that day to be “Retrocession Day” and organized the island into the Taiwan Province of the Republic of China. Taiwan has since been governed by the Government of the Republic of China.

Incredible: Cristiano Ronaldo’s manchester united loses 5-0 to liverpool

A rampant result at Liverpool’s Old Trafford, which effectively ousted Manchester United from the championship fight and regained second position (-1 from leaders Chelsea) against City. Not even 5 minutes of play and the Reds are already ahead: Milner’s filter for Salah who serves Keita centrally, good at getting in behind Shaw and chilling De Gea with an unstoppable low shot. Question and answer between 9 ‘and 11’: first Bruno Fernandes shoots sensationally high with his right face to face with Alisson, then Firmino’s left cross is blocked in two halves by De Gea. Anyway Diogo Jota thinks about signing the goal of doubling at 13 ‘: mess between Maguire and Shaw, Keita’s opening for Alexander-Arnold and cross that crosses the area and reaches the far post, where the Portuguese is very good at reiterating on the net in split. Cristiano Ronaldo is totally out of the game and can be seen in the 22nd minute, when a counterattack by the Red Devils ends with an imprecise conclusion from the star.

A violent blow from Greenwood forces Alisson to take a plastic flight. On the opposite front De Gea saves his team from the definitive capitulation, hypnotizing Salah in low output, but the Egyptian’s trio is postponed only at 38 ‘: Salah, Firmino and Diogo Jota talk in a handkerchief, then the opening for Keita who serves the number 11 for the crazy 0-3 at Old Trafford. With half-time almost upon us, there is also the time for Salah’s double all undisturbed at the suggestion of Diogo Jota. It is part of the second half and Salah goes for a hat-trick with a delicious touch below after Henderson’s deep throw. 0-5. It pours (it is appropriate to say) in the wet for United: after the goal of the flag canceled to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Var also intervenes on the occasion of the direct red waved then to Pogba, entered the field in the interval, for a bad foul on Keita. In short, patterns and nerves are completely blown and the Red Devils sink to -8 from the top of the standings.

According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester United’s humiliating 5-0 defeat against Liverpool would represent a conviction for Solksjaer who now risks more and more sacking. According to the tabloid, there are three coaches competing for the Red Devils’ bench: the two former Juventus players Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, as well as Brendan Rodgers.

♬ ZUCCHERO – Follow you Follow me

The new single by the Italian singer Zucchero is out: Follow you Follow me. This song, as many remember, is a song from the 70s by Genesis, which the Italian singer has reinterpreted with a brilliant cover.

LYRIC

Just one single tear in each passing yearI will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

GAETA (Latina) – PHOTO October 2021

I visited Gaeta on an October afternoon, when the sun’s lights were fading into the twilight of the sunset.
Gaeta is a town almost attached to Formia, the latter a much larger city with a very large port.
Gaeta has the characteristic of being under the slopes of Mount Orlando, overlooking the sea and overlooking the beach. The road from the north to get to the city is very suggestive and at times recalls that of the California coast …
