In a video in Indonesia, the Korean company may have revealed the shapes of the new smartphone release in March: will be water-resistant, with wireless charging and a completely new camera
Samsung Indonesian branch may have revealed the shapes of the new Galaxy S7. In an advertisement posted on Youtube, the archer Dellie Threesyadinda, famous at home, using a smartphone of the Korean giant to train. is not specified whether the new top model, but the title of the video – #TheNextGalaxy – does not leave much doubt, also in a section of the site, then removed, it is expressly mentioned that that phone was the new S7. The company has not confirmed but it is not impossible that this move will be part of an artfully made marketing campaign to pump up the exit of the new smartphone from Samsung in view of the presentation on Sunday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
From the video you can guess that the design and the soft, rounded lines of the Galaxy are essentially remained the same, while it seems that there could be a return of water and dust resistance, present already sull’S5 and not proposed in the latest release output in 2015.
The other strong point of the phone will be wireless charging ultra fast, improvements in terms of safety and a completely revolutionized camera to work better in low light conditions.
According to reports gathered over the past few weeks, the S7 will have a 5.1 inch screen while the S7 Edge will have the curved screen and will be slightly larger (5.5 inches) but both will be equipped with a port for the charging that promises to be revolutionary, because half an hour would be enough to fully charge the smartphone.

“I spent $ 40,000 on shoes and I have a place to live. Literally I am become the old lady who lived in a shoe, as in the fairy tale. “

It is impossible not to think back to this quote from Carrie Bradshaw ringing the bell of the beautiful New York apartment by Candace Bushnell. From his pen came the star of Sex and the City, made famous worldwide by bestseller, television series and movies. Almost fifty-seven years, the writer has bundled her collection of Manolo Blahnik and sold the apartment of crazy parties. But the similarities end there.
“Everyone asks me how much there is of me in the characters that I created, but I only brush: it draws on personal experiences, then you work with the imagination,” says Bushnell a bit ‘annoyed, because the parallel between her and his heroines does not stop at Sex and the City. His latest book, Golden Girl (Piemme), starring PJ Wallis, a divorced writer who can not leave behind her alter ego: the golden girl Monica and the actress who made her famous.
Hard not to make comparisons with reality. “Absolutely no. Unlike P.J. Wallis, I had an easy divorce (in 2012 by Charles Askegard, dancer of the New York City Ballet ten years her junior, ed) and in all my books there are characters who are actresses. It is a type that fascinates me: sit in front of a mirror for hours, surrounded by makeup artists and hairdressers working on your image and change your connotations, I have deep psychological repercussions. All this has always intrigued me. ”
It does not happen that way for most of the women who every day, before facing the day, carefully choosing clothes and makeup? “It is true. We live in a society obsessed by appearances. Everyone would like to be the Monica Golden Girl: beautiful, elegant and happy. I think there’s a Monica in all of us: the women – and not only – we build an artificial image showing the world through social sites or to find a soul mate. But it’s a shell, an empty shell, a game of appearances without substance. In the US, for example, are fixed with big breasts, but it is an aesthetic ideal imposed by men, we must have the courage to reject it and remain themselves. If I thought about plastic surgery? Of course, but personally I do not care to waste my time to please men. ”
Indeed, the Bushnell that opens the door – without a trace of makeup, colored leggings and boots blacks, nervous energy seeping from every pore of the small body – is very different from Candace in designer clothes of glossy magazines. “I do not like labels. You can be at the same time, a city girl and a country girl, all dressed for a gala, sloppy the next day. The important thing is not to worry too much about the external assessment. It is a freedom that I won after reaching fifty. Doubts, insecurities and self-criticism are the lifeblood of every author. I still spend most of the day to re-read what I wrote and then shout: “But how bad is this sentence.” By the time I learned to be a little ‘less hard on myself. I have no children and now, at the threshold of the 57 years I find myself single again, and yet I do not feel alone or incomplete. I came back to live in Connecticut where I took the passion of my youth, the horses. I lead a retired life, work, sports and some dinner with friends. ” In short, the Manolo Blahnik, Mr. Big and holidays Studio 54 thing of the past.
“As a young man, passing in front of this building, where Richard Gere had an apartment, I said to myself:” One day we will live too. ” I did, but this is the apartment where I lived with my husband and now it’s time to change: I just sold. I’m looking for a pied-a-terre in New York for the social occasions. I still like to dress for a party and I love fashion as an art form, but the popular favorite shoes of Carrie Bradshaw (in this case fantasy and reality coincide: the Bushnell owns a hundred, ed) are no longer topical. Even New York City has changed. Do not get me wrong, for those who want to have sex there are opportunities. But people really cool, creative people can no longer afford this city, biodynamic growing vegetables in the gardens of Brooklyn, certainly not sipping Cosmopolitan. ” Candace’s phone continues to report incoming messages. She gets up, walks nervously back and forth on the floor of the house of the Village now empty and exclaims triumphantly: “They have accepted the offer for the ideal pied-a-terre.” And so Candace Bushnell turns the page.

The ruin of the monument erected in honor of Costanzo Ciano, fascist and father of the late Foreign Minister Galeazzo, the son of the Duce was shot in ’44 in the Republic of Salo following the process of Verona ‘s “high treason” voting confidence in Mussolini on 25 July ’43, still stands in front of the sea of ​​Livorno, home town of Ciano.

Alpine skiing: The blue team work between glaciers and South America

The preparation of the national alpine skiing to winter is living its crucial phase: between August and September, in fact, almost all the teams – and Italy is no exception – fly to South America or Oceania using the austral winter and therefore the ski resorts of the two continents to return to sample the snow.

There is no lack sessions on shrinking glaciers, this year put to a severe test by the violent heat of July and August which kept Freezing often above the 4500 meters: in any case, the Italian team is continuing its work which, judging by the statements of the technical, it appears very satisfactory. As reported Raceskimagazine, in fact, the new head of the technical disciplines female Gianluca Rulfi says he is “pleased for the athletic level of girls, particularly those more experienced,” noting as missing “or motivations, or the potential to do very well.” Statements in line with those made by Max Carca, responsible for the men’s team, the site Fisi, we have taken up in this article.

Specifically, the group of male giant has just returned from Argentina, while slalom Stephen Gross, Giuliano Razzoli and Patrick Thaler are working in Saas Fee: Roberto Nani has instead done preparation tailored to New Zealand, taking part also to four slalom special Australian New Zealand Cup with a third place in Perisher best result. The choice of Livigno to compete despite the fever that has gripped for several days is due to the need to lower the score FIS for starting numbers among the best rapid gates and not only among the wide doors of the giant. The men’s team speed instead to work in La Parva, Chile, after a first internship in Valle Nevado.

As for the girls, a large group of gigantiste, supergigantiste and discesiste started two days ago at a time of Ushuaia, the great location and the End of the World: here, under the orders of Alberto Ghezze and Gianluca Rulfi, will host a stage of three weeks is expected to culminate with the dispute, for some athletes, the finals of the South American Cup.

Exhibitions, Pinturicchio in Cortina

 

Initially it was thought that was a myth, impossible that a work so scandalous might have been made. But then, 500 years later, “The Baby Jesus of the Hands” Pinturicchio appeared out of nowhere and, thanks to the efforts of the Foundation William Jordan, he returned to be talked about. Having wooed the most important museums in the world such as the Guggenheim in New York and the Musée Maillol in Paris, it will again be accessible to the Italian public during the exhibition to be held from December 1 to January 31, 2016 at the Museum of Art Mario Rimoldi modern Cortina d’Ampezzo. The painting is the guardian of a hidden plot that has its genesis in the apartments of Pope Alexander VI (1431 – 1503), without doubt one of the most controversial in the history and commissioned the work of Pinturicchio. The woman’s face would be shown actually to Giulia Farnese, mistress and mother of a child attributed to the Pope.

Mont Blanc, it fights on the border. Chamonix: “It ‘France’. Courmayeur: “No, it’s Italian”

Mont Blanc, is quarrel between France and Italy. Chamonix has closed access to the glacier of the Giant from Torino refuge. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage. But the shelter Turin is Italy.”

Rome, September 7, 2015 – The Mont Blanc and its border: where does Italy and France where he started? The dispute is beautiful open, and the last act of the tug bears the signature of the mayor of Chamonix. Access closed from Torino refuge of the glacier du Géant. Because what they say from Chamonix, “French territory”. Different opinion in Courmayeur – united by the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix own – where they have absolutely no doubts: “Up there is Italy, have no competence”.

THE BACKGROUND In recent days, two mountain guides from across the Alps, to the order of the mayor Eric Fournier, have blocked access to the glacier. Reason: security issues. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists in recent months – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage, also creating danger for climbers who now have to jump over a hurdle to set foot on the snow. ” “The shelter is in Turin Italy – thundered still Derriard – and there the French have no jurisdiction. The decision to close the passage will have legal consequences. It is true, our land registry does not match that of Chamonix. We still we rely on maps NATO transposing the Convention of 1860 and put the border on the watershed. ”

According to the French border passes under the Torino hut, which then would be in the Transalpine territory, for Italians instead is in the middle of the glacier, about 300 meters higher, and therefore it would be in Italy. Delfino Viglione, Marshal of the Guardia di Finanza of Entreves, for years dealing with the question: “The boundaries are on the watershed, from the Dome du Gouter to the summit of Mont Blanc, the Mont Maudit to the Tour Ronde, from the Flambeau with up to tip Hellbronner. At altitude there are the stones, is the ridge that forms the boundary. ”

BOUNDARIES AND REALITY The last clash between the two neighboring municipalities comes more than two months after the comment Renzi, that on June 23 he said “We have not invaded France” with the back of a giant glacial heart of Mont Blanc. The externalization of the Prime Minister came not by chance: with the difficult situation in the Mediterranean and the tensions at the border of Ventimiglia France-Italy, also the border dispute of Mont Blanc has resumed vigorously share. And there’s more: during a visit to the new reality of Rai2 Mont Blanc, run Catherine Bailiff, have not gone unnoticed the four tents pitched on the glacier of Giant. The French have taken pains to emphasize that the Valdostane Alpine Guides “Ici c’est nous, c’est la France”. “For us – he said recently the president of the mountain guides of Valle d’Aosta, Guido Azzalea – is more and more difficult to work on the French side.” History now base camp for that very future of RAI-2 will follow the official channels, from the ministry IGM up, the Institute of Military Geography. The inauguration of the new plant of the border, which on June 25 was attended by the Prime Minister Renzi, were not present nor the representatives of the cable cars Chamoniarde, nor the mayor of Chamonix. Now even close access. It will serve to restore peace a reality?

MOVED THE FRONTIER The boundaries also gave headaches last year at Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo, a few kilometers from White. “The French with a bulldozer – recalled a guide – they moved the boundary stone of 150 meters. As it is obvious that it is immediately returned to his place.” The dispute starts over 150 years ago, from 1865, when the French drew an ear on the southern side of the mountain. Decision which became law and that even without being a parliamentary Luciano Caveri in 1996 and a European assembly of three years after Nicholas Rinaldi was able to resolve. Since 2011, Google Maps also took note of: a reinvented border and towards the Dôme du Goûter, and towards Punta Helbronner.
