Omaggio a Stephen Hawking

Prefazione all' articolo.

Coppia che si interroga sull ' UniversoNavigando sul Web, ho trovato un video  di Stephen sulla Teoria dell' Universo, visualizzabile alla fine di questo articolo, in cui è Stephen stesso che racconta. Il video è eccezionalmente bello ed interessante!

Unica pecca: il testo dei sottotitoli  contiene parecchi errori, e lascia parecchio a desiderare. Allora, ho di seguito trascritto tutto il testo del video in questo mio articolo, correggendolo dove necessario, segmentandolo in paragrafi, ed inserendo frequentemente, specie ad inizio paragrafo, i valori del tempo di visualizzazione del video (per velocizzare l' inevitabile alternanza immagine/testo). Chiude il presente  articolo una lista di interessanti link relativi a Stephen Hawking.
Buona lettura.

Italia 2018: quadro geopolitico

 Italia : quadro geopolitico

Il 4 Marzo il bipolarismo che ci ha governato per 20 anni è crollato, lasciando il posto a due nuovi poli: un nuovo centrodestra non più a guida berlusconiana, ma trainato dalla destra leghista, che è riuscita nel sorpasso cavalcando lo stesso malcontento che aveva portato Trump alla Casa Bianca. Il secondo polo rappresentato dal populismo del Movimento 5 Stelle, che ha aumentato talmente tanto i seggi in parlamento che si è assicurato un posto nel governo che nascerà.

Meet up at Bryant Park

Margareth

Bryant ParkMargareth was proud of her work and of her position. And the people who knew her were in favor of seeing her as a good financial consultant, with a quality that could hardly be precisely defined, and that her most discerning clients identified in a kind of wonderful certainty that what was being decided about or diversification of the securities of a portfolio or a brilliant pick-up would have been a sure success.

With slow steps, she approached the large window of his office, at the 30th - and even last - floor of HSBC Tower, 452 Fifth Avenue, New York: during the night the wind had swept the sky from all the clouds, and the view was magnificent, but partial. Then, as he had done before, she took a key from the desk, closed the office door behind him, ran up the two flights of stairs and then - two turns in the lock and a push - went out onto the terrace!

Now nothing stood in front of her eyes and, satisfied, she could look up to the Hudson to the left, to the East River to the right and, behind him, to all the Central Park to the north, ... and beyond, and beyond! Then, as always, her gaze slowly receded, retracing the previous vision backwards, until she pinned herself on Bryant Park just below her: New Yorker for generations, she loved her city, and in particular she loved that meadow which today shone like a face well polished of an enormous emerald.
The Bryant Park! ... Always well cared for and clean, with all those chairs and tables under the plants arranged around the rectangle of green lawn, where she went to read, or consume fast food, or at other times simply to lie down and sunbathe with her feet barefoot on the grass.
And then, in winter, all November and December, that ice rink, the Winter Village, and those shops with yellow, green, multicolored glass windows, where you can buy everything, useful and useless, a drink, a coffee, a snack, or a nice souvenir. Or even go and get your favorite book from the adjacent New York Public Library, then read it sitting on one of the many chairs available, for example, next to the statue of William C. Bryant !, poet and journalist, or next to the circular fountain , or in one of the shady alleys around the park, or in full light in the park.

The little lonely cloud

nuvoletta-solitaria1.jpg - 3,06 kBThat morning, a happy cloud wandered lonely in a blue sky, punctuated here and there by other white clouds, some in groups, others lonely as she.
A light wind pushed the cloud, and it stroked and gently molded the her  floating body, white and soft as freshly fallen snow.

That summer thunderstorm on the beach ...

A summer Thunderstorm on the beachThe woman closed behind her the chalet door so it could not be beaten by the wind.
Slender, high, she slowly moved toward the sea, with her face raised to the sky, her arms slightly stretched along and her body and her palms open upwards, graciously accepting the raindrops of that suddenly summer-storm at the beginning of the evening. When a lightning crossed the dark  sky, obscured by clouds,  illuminating for a moment her face, you could have seen in her green eyes a shiver of pleasure: that day was quite hot.
