4th February (’23): World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day is celebrated on February 4, promoted by the UICC – Union for International Cancer Control – and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Now in its twenty-third edition, the day represents an important call to reflect on what institutions and individuals can do together to fight cancer.

‘Close the Care Gap – Everyone deserves access to cancer care’ is the theme of the 2022-2024 campaign. The slogan calls attention to the importance of understanding and recognizing inequalities in cancer care around the world.

“Cancer is a preventable and curable pathology. We are preparing initiatives to enhance the promotion of cancer screening and at the same time encourage correct lifestyles to reduce risk factors. Prevention is essential and for this reason we want to spread a strong message of promotion of health to the entire population and in particular to young people, starting from elementary schools” declared the Italian Minister of Health Orazio Schillaci.

♬ Miley Cyrus – Flowers

In January 2023 Miley Cyrus returns two years with a new single, Flowers, an excerpt from the new album “Endless Vacation Summer” which will be released on March 10th.

The Meaning of Flowers
Flowers is a song that was born with the aim of claiming an emotional independence achieved over time by the artist, after breaking up with her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. It talks about a beautiful relationship that ended, recounting a serenity conquered after having reached the awareness of being able to do it alone, not necessarily needing a partner to feel good.

LYRIC

We were good, we were gold
Kind of dream that can’t be sold
We were right ’til we weren’t
Built a home and watched it burn

Mmm, I didn’t wanna leave you, I didn’t wanna lie
Started to cry, but then remembered I

I can buy myself flowers
Write my name in the sand
Talk to myself for hours
Say things you don’t understand
I can take myself dancing
And I can hold my own hand
Yeah, I can love me better than you can

Can love me better, I can love me better, baby
Can love me better, I can love me better, baby

Paint my nails cherry-red
Match the roses that you left
No remorse, no regret
I forget every word you said

Ooh, I didn’t wanna leave, baby, I didn’t wanna fight
Started to cry, but then remembered I

I can buy myself flowers
Write my name in sand
Talk to myself for hours, yeah
Say things you don’t understand
I can take myself dancing, yeah
I can hold my own hand
Yeah, I can love me better than you can

Can love me better, I can love me better, baby
Can love me better, I can love me better, baby
Can love me better, I can love me better, baby
Can love me better, ooh, I

I didn’t wanna leave you, I didn’t wanna fight
Started to cry, but then remembered I

I can buy myself flowers (Uh-huh)
Write my name in the sand (Ooh, mmm)
Talk to myself for hours (Yeah)
Say things you don’t understand (Better than you)
I can take myself dancing (Yeah)
I can hold my own hand

LYRIC

Woke up this morning to somebody in a video
Talking about something I posted in a video
If it wasn’t me then would you even get offended? Or
Is it just because I’m Black and heavy? Y’all don’t hear me though
I’ve been the same since I’ve been driving slow on Bissonnet
Call up anybody I know and they would tell you that
Fame is pretty new but I’ve been used to people judging me
That’s why I move the way I move and why I’m so in love with me

I’m used to feeling alone, oh
So I thought that I’d let you know

In case nobody told you today
You’re special (special)
In case nobody made you believe
You’re special (special)
Well, I will always love you the same
You’re special
I’m so glad that you’re still with us
Broken, but damn, you’re still perfect (perfect)
(Special)

Could you imagine a world
Where everybody’s the same?
And you can cancel a girl
‘Cause she just wanted to change
How could you throw fuckin’ stones
If you ain’t been through her pain?
That’s why we feel so alone
That’s why we feel so ashamed, hmm

I’m used to feeling alone, oh
So I thought that I’d let you know (oh)

In case nobody told you today
You’re special (special)
In case nobody made you believe
You’re special (special)
Well, I will always love you the same
You’re special
I’m so glad that you’re still with us
Broken, but damn, you’re still perfect (perfect)

I know that I’m not alone, oh
So I thought that I’d let you know (oh)
Uh, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah, yeah)

In case nobody told you today
You’re special (special)
In case nobody made you believe
You’re special (yeah)
Well, I will always love you the same
You’re special (special)
I’m so glad that you’re still with us (I’m so glad)
Broken, but damn, you’re still perfect (so glad, so glad, so glad)

Special
You are, you are, you are so special
Mmm-mmm

Yeah, back to life

Then you’re gonna leave me dead

In fact, in Italy, above all for the landscape environment, they tend to place wind turbines only on windy hills of little interest… and the sea is a protected area although in recent years projects have been launched to place wind turbines in other places of the Italian coasts.

as it is known denmark has been one of the countries for decades trying to exploit wind energy more, especially at sea but now, with further works, the most powerful wind plant in the world will be obtained…

In fact Vindeby Park was the first wind farm built in the world

The last components, the three 115.5-metre blades, have finally been brought to their destination and ready to be attached to the rest of the turbine, i.e. the tower sections, the nacelle and the prototype hub, already installed and ready to enter function.

largest blades in the world

We are talking about the V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbine, currently still a prototype of what, thanks to the blades, could be the most powerful wind energy generator in the world.

The mass production of the blades will be entrusted to Nakskov starting from the second half of 2023, and from the company plant in Taranto starting from the third quarter of the same year.

The V236-15.0MW, introduced to the market in February 2021, has a rotor diameter of 236 meters and a swept area of ​​43,743 square metres, the largest in the industry to date. Even the height is an absolute record, equal to 280 meters.

According to the company, a single Vestas V236-15.0MW is capable of producing 80 GWh annually, a portion of energy sufficient to power around 20,000 European households and save more than 38,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of around 25,000 passenger cars worldwide. less every year.

Come on
Here I am on bended knees
I lay my heart down at your feet
Do I love you?
All you have to do is ask
I’ll give until there’s nothing left
Do I love you?
As long as there is life in me
Your happiness is guaranteed
I’ll fill your heart with ecstasy, darling
Do I love you?
Tell me now
Do I love you?
Ooh, ooh
Do I love you?
Indeed I do
Oh, darling
Indeed I do
The very thing that I want most
Is just to have and hold you close
Do I love you?
From morning until late at night
You fill my heart with pure delight
Do I love you?
Whenever I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord your soul to keep
And bring it on home safe to me, darling
Do I love you?
Come on, darling
Do I love you?
Ooh, ah
Do I love you?
Indeed I do

LYRIC

You see tonight, it could go either way
Hearts balanced on a razor blade
We are designed to love and break
And to rinse and repeat it all again

I get stuck when the world’s too loud
And things don’t look up when you’re going down
And I know your arms are reaching out
From somewhere beyond the clouds

You make me feel
Like my troubled heart is a million miles away
You make me feel
Like I’m drunk on stars and we’re dancing out in the space
Celestial
Celestial

You see the light shinin’ through the rain
A thousand colors in the brighter shade
Needed to rise from the lowest place
There’s a silver lining that surrounds the gray

When I get lost will you come back around?
Things don’t look up when you’re going down
Know your arms are reaching out
From somewhere beyond the clouds

You make me feel
Like my troubled heart is a million miles away
You make me feel
Like I’m drunk on stars and we’re dancing out in the space
Celestial
Celestial, ohh

We were made to be
Nothing more than this
Finding magic in all the smallest things
When we notice that’s what really matters is
Make tonight go on and on and on

You make me feel
(We were made to be
Nothing more than this
Finding magic in all the smallest things)
You make me feel
(When we notice that’s what really matters is)
You make me feel
Like my troubled heart is a million miles away
You make me feel
Like I’m drunk on stars and we’re dancing out in the space
Celestial, ohh
Celestial, ohh
Celestial, ohh

We were made to be
Nothing more than this
Finding magic in all the smallest things
When we notice that’s what really matters is
Make tonight go on and on and on

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.
