Quelli che votano radicale «per far ballare Prodi»

Viaggio tra gli elettori di Ds, Margherita e Prc tentati dalla strana coppia Boselli-Bonino. Per difendere la laicità dello stato e non solo.

La Rosa nel pugno in faccia lascerà il segno. Pesante. Troppo tardi per scansarsi, nel centrosinistra qualcuno lo ammette. «Siamo molto preoccupati». Potrebbe non essere da fantascienza uno scenario dove saranno Intini e Capezzone a fare il Bertinotti della situazione. Non è un sondaggio, ma è l'aria che tira. «Ma, senti un po', e la Rosa nel pugno?».

Nicht die Arbeitslosenquote zaehlt sondern der Prozentsatz der Beschaeftigten

confronto con gli altri paesi europei (fonte Eurispes) troviamo che nel 2004, in Italia, ogni cento persone con un'età compresa tra i 55 ed i 64 anni, ne lavoravano soltanto 31, contro 41 della Francia, 43 della Germania, 57 del Regno Unito e, prima tra le nazioni europee, le oltre 70 della Svezia! Inutile dire che con un numero così basso di lavoratori, il sistema previdenziale non si sostiene.

Mapping of AGROVOC to the Chinese Agricultural Thesaurus

My group got a grant from a specific program of FAO a for a joint project between FAO and the Chinese Accademy of Agricultural Science. Within this project AGROVOC will be mapped to the Chinese Agricultural Thesaurus. The lead of the project is with FAO in Rome. In Beijig a team of expert is established to do the mapping. Goal is to get deeper access to Chinese agricultural resources and to give better possibilities for Chinese speakers to access FAOs information.

This is a major achievement in the construction of the Agricultural Ontology Service

"Eine Weltinnenpolitik is an der Zeit, wie sie Carl Friedrich von Weizsaecker gefordert hat und wie sie den universalistischen Ideen von Leibniz und Kant entspricht. Die gegenwaertigen Probleme sind global und koennen auch nur global geloest werden. Das betrifft die Oekologie, die Resourcen, das multinationale Kapital, die mediale Vernetzung, den Nord Sued Konflikt, die Nichtverbreitung von Atomwaffen, den Terrorismus. Es kommt nicht auf einen grosssen revolutionaeren Akt an, sondern auf eine Perspektive, die dorthin weist und Schritte, die dahin fuehren......

Differences in Western and Chinese Thinking: Cosmology

At the cosmological level all the major philosopical schools in China shared ideas related to ancestors and heaven discussed in the last chapter. They also shared an underlying assumption that the cosmos came into being on its own without a creator of the sort so important in most western thinking. Insteasd of focusing on mechanisms that set things into motion, whicha are important where there is an assumption of a creator, these thinkers emphasizied the organismic interconnections among all the constituent parts, stressing relationships and concurrences much morethan causes.
