American Values

1. We are an optimistic people, not a fearful people. We strive to be brave and free, not fearful and repressed.
2. We value freedom and democracy so much that we would proudly give our lives to protect and advance them.
3. We can't promote the principles of freedom and democracy by violating them.
4. These principles are our common moral compass. We may change our policies as circumstances change, but we hold firmly to these core principles.
5. In military matters, Smart is as important as Strong, and Right is more important than Might.

La laicità della sinistra

La sinistra che da mezzo secolo non esise più. Erano sbagliate, inoltre, perchè nascevano dalla solitudine politica nella quale avevo sempre vissuto e che invano avevo sperato d'alleggerire cecando d'annaffiare il derserto proprio con chi lo aveva creato. Ma soprattutto erano domande sbagliate perchè erano sbagliati i ragionamenti o meglio i presupposti su cui esse si basavano. Primo presupposto, che la Sinistra fosse laica. No: pur essendo figlia del laicismo, peraltro un laicismo partorito dal liberalismo e quindi a lei non consono, la Sinistra non è laica.

Die Linke und der Fortschritt

Nur Negativitaet is geblieben bei der oppositionellen Linken, waehrend die Linke an der Regierung nur pragmatisch werkelt. Es gibt keine Ideen. Hauptissue ist, dass keine Idee des Fortschrittes mehr vorhanden ist, keine Ueberzeugung dass wir Menschen die Moeglichkeite haben, die Welt zu verbessern,, und dass wir sie auch verbessert haben. Fortschritt existiert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Es ware herauszuarbeiten, dass alle die die die Vergangen heit beweinen Unrecht haben. Auch Dinge wie Essen und Kultur sind heute viel weiter entwickelt als in der Vergangenheit.

Die Commons und die Moderne

Es ist noetig die Moderne gegen diejenigen zu verteidigen, die glauben, die Moderne sei durch die 68er Bewegung angegriffen worden. Die 68er Bewegung war swiespaeltig und hatte insich schon auch die Negation der Moderne ("Angst vor der Freiheit") aber in Ihrem Ursprung war sie darauf gerichtet den Freiheitsanspruch der Moderne zu verwirklichen. Den Freiheitsanspruch!!!

Transferring the processing of the Central AGRIS database from Vienna to Rome

The central AGRIS database had been produced in Vienna during the 90s by a group for more than 15 persons, who processed the incoming data before adding them to the database.
After the decision of taking away emphasis from data processing to capacity building, the AGRIS production was transferred to Rome. Part of the money saved by this operation was used to create positions in the field to support the capacity building fucntions. The challenge was, to go on with the production of the AGRIS database in Rome with incomparable less resources.
