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.

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

26th September (’22): International Day For The Total Elimination Of Nuclear Weapons:

International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons is an international event celebrated annually on September 26. Inaugurated in October 2014 with United Nations General Assembly Resolution 68/32, this is a day of events that are organized with the support of a variety of individuals and groups in Australia, Japan, the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the UN (United Nations Organization).
During the first day, an instructive and explanatory video was distributed by Unfold Zero, the United Nations platform, asking the global population two questions:
a) How many nuclear weapons do you think there are in the world ?;
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 “.

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

The hard days are nearly over
And we’ve been hangin’ on
It feels like we’re getting closer
To dawn
We took the long way up to heaven
And got blinded by the lights
But as long as we’re together
I know it will be alright
I see a better day
I see a better day for you, for you and me, a-ayy
I see a better day
Yeah, everything is gonna change for you and me
I knew we were gonna make it
I never had a doubt
Soon we’ll be feeling weightless
Like clouds
We took the long way up to heaven
And got blinded by the lights
But as long as we’re together
I know it will be alright
I see a better day
I see a better day for you, for you and me, a-ayy
I see a better day
Yeah, everything is gonna change for you and me
