If it’s bad, it costs less to ski

The classic day ticket for the ski resorts is going out of fashion and the stations are experimenting with new sales strategies

Simply, the classic day pass for the ski resorts stewed and is going out of fashion. The winter resorts are in fact developing new possibilities of ticket sales.

The first step in this direction was made by the stations of Pizol Bad Ragaz (SG) and Belalp (VS), which offer varying prices depending on the weather. In case of bad weather conditions, the ski-pass costs reduced by up to 50% of the original price.

A second alternative is being considered for next winter from Lenzerheide (GR): “Pay-per-use”, the skiers have the opportunity to pay only the systems they use and the price is calculated for each ski. Two new deals possible even in Laax (GR): one is the VIP-Ticket “Blueline” which allows those who are willing to pay more to jump the queue passing directly by a special fast track, the other is the new proposal for young people who are dedicated to Freestyle; The new “Ski-Ticket light” is in fact designed for individuals who only attend the Snow Park area.

Ischia, a romantic weekend in Sant’angelo

The best months to enjoy a weekend of total relaxation in Ischia are between late April and May, the first weeks of June, or September and October. In this period, the largest of the volcanic islands is not packed with tourists and can be admired in all its beauty and tranquility.
Sant’Angelo d’IschiaSi can get to Naples by train and then by bus from the station to the port. Or choose to arrive in the capital of Campania with the car, and leave it parked in one of the many car parks near the port of call. The most convenient is the parking Brin, 7 and EUR 20 per day. Just outside is the stop of the bus is that the taxi to reach in few minutes the boarding. Ferries, from Porta di Massa in Ischia Porto takes an hour and a half for about 50 Euros (round trip, we chose the Medmar), or is there fast hydrofoil. And depart four or five times a day. Upon arrival we are greeted by the taxi rank, which have a fixed rate depending on the location to reach established by the City. Otherwise there is a public service, as though considering that there are few main roads, very narrow and busy, then the means pass slowly, but in terms of the money you’ll save a lot.
A small village which lies at the foot of the town of Serrana Fontana. The picturesque fishing hamlet is a little gem overlooking the sea. From the characteristic square of an isthmus that connects an island where once stood a small church and where you established the cult of St. Michael, the guardian angel who gave his name to the village. On the right hand side of the village, past the parish church, you get to Cava Petrelle, where there are the famous fumaroles. Here the ground escaping steam clouds and the sea of ​​gas bubbles, produced by the large thermal energy from the ground. With a beautiful walk in the boat, or with the coaches and then over 200 steps (rather tiring ascent), you get to Sorgeto Bay that is a typical example of the natural spas, with its hot and rejuvenating pools. In fact it contains among its rocks the characteristic of having hot water in the winter months, ideal for bathrooms in the moonlight. The thermal water gushes out of the ground at 90 degrees and then mixes with the cold currents of the sea. Ascent through the tiny streets of Sant’Angelo, accompanied by the scent of jasmine, up the granite ridge, where now there are a myriad of hotels and pensions, and the view is breathtaking. Here is nice, as well as romantic, maybe have a drink while the sun sets over the sea. While going down to the harbor, between shops offering local products from limoncello to ceramics, there are many restaurants overlooking the sea.
Like a big playground, but instead of slides and roller coasters, there are waterfalls, natural saunas and massages. The Poseidon gardens are an oasis of relaxation with flowers, roses and cactus, under the pine trees and olive trees, in the Citara bay, where a thermal spring brings up the therapeutic powers of volcanic nature. Entrance costs € 32 for the whole day, half instead 27. The price is high, but it is the place where you are. By 22 curative thermal pools (two child-only), each with its own constant temperature of 20 to 40 degrees and, given the abundance, the ‘water is constantly renewed, which is not always found in other spas. The offer is complemented by a wide private beach, sauna, underwater massage, Kneipp groups, Japanese circulatory path and several restaurants, one of which is located in a beautiful grotto of local tuff. The special climate-aesthetic-environmental conditions that are associated with Poseidon offers spa therapeutic factors and those related to the helium-marine practices, forming a true “natural curative mosaic.” Then in April, back when the heat is not hot, what’s better than to dive under a waterfall at 32 degrees?

Facebook says stop arms sales

The social network blocks the sale of guns and rifles including private members. The complaints and the dangers created the change, but does not apply to specialized companies, free to advertise their arsenal.

The question remains whether it is a move only due to the change of direction indicated by the White House or a step wanted to destroy the status quo. That was not at all reassuring, because when it comes to weapons there’s no joking. If Italy is a little-known dynamic, the US exploited the most populated virtual square of the network for the sale of arms is a practice in vogue for many years. Find who offers pistols and rifles on Facebook is easy and dismissive, as much as close a deal.

Despite the first alarm launched by the US technology site Venture Beat, that more than a year ago showed how suffice fifteen minutes to take home a semi automatic, has passed under the radar, over time the spell broke even thanks to petitions Change.org by a group of mothers. Small pieces that gradually led Facebook to reflect on the issue and close the gaps. “The past two years have increased the people who use social to sell and buy goods privately, as well as we continue to test and launch new products update our policies,” explained Monica Bickert, head of the Menlo Park Product Policy.

That so bans exchanges aimed at the sale – even on Instagram, where instead of words there are the photographs to promote business – but hitting only private citizens.

The oddity of the decision is in fact the total freedom left (always) at companies, free to advertise its catalog for proliferation affairs. In the US, the country of dreams and quirks, there is indeed the Second Amendment of the Constitution to defend the rights of sellers of weapons (and that of citizens to arm themselves), immediately fired up for the stop notice from Facebook and soon placatisi before limits of the same. Beyond the official stores, the Facebook is a novelty of great impact because it closes in fact one of the most thriving markets of US weapons. Research by Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization supported by Michael Bloomberg, shows how the blue message boards have grown up to be the second largest market for the sale of the state of Nevada weapons. Beyond that, it should be remembered as the industry lobbies have enormous power often succeeding to silence prosecutors and governors. It not by chance after the latest killings (14 deaths in the attack in San Bernardino, California, in December and the 20 children killed in the Sandy Hook School in Connecticut) was Obama to change the tables. The President has supported an awareness campaign and put pressure on Congress to concretize actions always remained on paper.

Waiting to see if and how Washington will react, it is certain that even without Facebook and Instagram, those who want a weapon can succeed without even sweat too much, but for sure from now on some carnage could be prevented. To buy a gun in the store the buyer must show criminal record, pass not foreseen in the company buying and selling, so at least it closes the door on the branded eager to carry out crimes and murders.

Breathtaking landscapes, snow-capped peaks, clean air and very very cold. Those who enjoy holidays in the mountains is certainly not discouraged by low temperatures, that is clear, but perhaps not everyone knows that you can stay warm without compromising on style.

The gloves are made of wool, such as those of Coccinelle, or with the hair, such as those of Aldo. The backpacks are technical and eco-friendly; Freitag, the Swiss brand that uses waste materials and transforms them into fabric, was able to design them waterproof and colorful, as well as unique.
For the head, classic hats cap to keep warm or soft ear pads for eccentric personalities. The shoes and boots are a low shot such as Camper and Emu Australia, with stiletto for women who do not like hiking at high altitudes but the break in a cabin, or sneakers for urban female travelers.
There is no lack of plush bags and quilted fabrics and sunglasses with mirrored lenses and a contemporary design.

Do not underestimate the belly is a health risk

Do not underestimate the belly is a health risk
Research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine relates abdominal fat and the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease and diabetes

“I’m not fat, I only have a little ‘belly’. If you too entrenched behind this banal justification to avoid subscribing to the gym, you know that you are taking a risk. To say it is a recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, which further underscores the dangers of abdominal fat. The researchers analyzed the clinical picture of more than 15,000 people, coming to the conclusion that men with swollen bellies (regardless of their weight) have double the risk of mortality than those who are generally overweight or tendency to obesity.

Among the main hazards include the possibility of stroke, coronary heart disease and diabetes. The fat that accumulates on the belly (also called visceral) can indeed penetrate deep and wrap the vital organs, causing the liver to produce cholesterol resulting in hardening of the arteries. To this Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenes, one of the authors of the research, we are advised to follow healthy eating and devote at least 50 minutes three days a week to physical activity.

SKIING IN November

LOCATION ‘RECOMMENDED TO START SEASON
where to ski early in the season
Many skiers are wondering where to ski early in the season. There is a number of ski resort that are recommended because they lend themselves more than others for skiing in November because of their high altitude, perhaps for the presence of glaciers or for a snow-making system which allows very efficient early openings.

The conditions vary from year to year, but it is good practice to choose ski areas which offer runs above 2500 meters.

 

Not many Italian places where you can ski from the first days of November, while there are many ski resorts which open towards the end of the month. The Italian places that we would recommend for the first half of the season are:

Cervinia (AO) from the country’s two cable cars and a cable car leading skiers up to 3480 meters of the Plateau Rosa. The plant opened earlier in the season are all on the Swiss side. And ‘therefore necessary to have the international ski pass. From Saturday, November 8, 2014 will be open tracks also on the Italian side with the top twenty of the Plan area and the Mason – Fornet – Bontadini.
Presena Glacier (BS): the Presena glacier offers the first ski runs Adamello Ski starting Saturday 8 novebre 2014.
Solda (BZ): open from 8 November, offers three long chair lifts over 2600 meters. In mid-November, there is also the Solda Ski Happening to celebrate the opening of the slopes.
Val Senales (BZ): was one of the last resorts to offer summer skiing in South Tyrol. Now that possibility no longer exists but the high altitude and the glacier are guaranteed excellent snow early in the season.

It should be borne in mind that France, despite having locations at high altitudes tend to open their facilities to the bridge of All Saints only to close them again until the end of the month.

First snow of the season on the northern coast of Alaska in the next few days the snow whiten even the north of Eastern Siberia
Despite the many difficulties the cold, gradually, begin to appear along the Arctic coasts of North America. In recent days, the first major wave of autumn chill has affected the northern coast of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, where the influx of very cold air from the Arctic cap, has plunged the thermometer below the threshold of + 0 ° C. Even at some stations the Canadian Arctic Archipelago were recorded the first minimum below -9 ° C -10 ° C. The arrival of the first cold Arctic was accompanied by the arrival of the first snows fall on the northern coast of Alaska, overlooking the Sea of ​​Beaufort, now completely free of ice.

The first snow of the season has whitened the city of Barrow, last Tuesday, September 8, 2015, leaving the ground a small deposit of just 1.2 cm. The snow is falling at times mixed with rain, because of the positive temperature, but also of sustained winds from E-NE and NE who these days have swept the largest city in northern Alaska, with gusts that reached their peak 60 km / h. But these days far more abundant snowfalls have cloaked in white most of the northern coast of Alaska, leaving the first accumulations also on the northern plain, at the foot of the imposing mountains of the Brooks Range, which also impose a great “sto” to damp and cold northerly currents coming from the cold Beaufort Sea, which in this period and for much of the ice-free.

In the areas affected by the recent snow in the coming days it will also determine the effect “Albedo” significant that will help to lower temperatures, favoring the advent of the first true frost also on the ground, especially on the inner areas. The cold wave that hit about Alaska Northern was caused by the passage of a deep depression extratropical, headed by the polar vortex, full of cold air to all units, that the Beaufort Sea has shifted to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago . This extratropical cyclone, a cold heart, filled with very cold air to all units of the troposphere, appeared along its southern edge and western intense “pressure gradient horizontal” which facilitated the activation of strong stormy winds, first from North and N-NE subsequently rotated from NE and E-NE, that the Beaufort Sea have rapidly propagated to the northern coast of Alaska. The strong winds from O-NO and NO, which blew with gusts to over the 70 km / h in the post-frontal, channeled a portion of the block of very cold air, of Arctic origin (cold air and heavily produced over the Hood ), present in the Beaufort Sea, north to Alaska and the western Canadian Arctic Archipelago, where temperatures have plummeted under the wall of the “freezing” at sea level, allowing the arrival of the first snowfalls of up to shares flat.
With the gradual shift of deep depression Arctic to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the storms from NE and E-NE have spread to the rest of the northern coast, from the Bay of Mackenzie, across the Canadian border. In the coming days the first snowfall of the season, on a straight flat, will continue to affect the northern coasts of Alaska and even the territories of north-eastern Siberia, especially the coasts bordering the East Siberian Seas. Everything about the isolation of a deep cyclonic circulation, cold in character, headed by the “Siberian lobe”, that the coast of Siberia, Central and Eastern Europe will move in the direction of the central sector of the Arctic Ocean, as a result of the action of ” forcing “a promontory anticyclonic dynamically expanding on southern Siberia, deepened further.

This deep depression Arctic will be fed, along its western edge, from air masses rather cold aspirated directly from the Arctic Ocean. The low pressure area, while moving towards the Arctic Ocean, will push to the plateau of Eastern Siberia very cold air will invade the northern area of ​​eastern Siberia, leading to a sharp cooling and also facilitating the floodgates of the first snowfall weak and moderate intensity. By next weekend the extent of snow cover over Eurasia should begin to grow, embracing part of Eastern Siberia and the coasts of Central Siberia, where temperatures are falling at the turn of + 0 ° C at sea level. For many of these areas it will be the first snow fall, after the latest snowfall last spring. Soils snow will cause a massive cooling of the air layer present in the lower layers.

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.

It was on August 8, 1786 and the ‘heroes’ ascension was Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard. The two climbers reached the summit after 14 hours from the start and remained there for about half an hour
In the beginning was the Mont Maudit, the “Cursed Mountain” inaccessible, arcane, and why, in the imagination of the most populated with scary monsters.
Then came the scientists to explore this mysterious world to reveal its secrets. In the mid ‘800 with the top climbers and the birth of modern mountaineering, the Mont Blanc opened to men in its fascinating greatness.
The climbing history of Mount Blanc begins August 8, 1786 with the arrival at the top of Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard and time was of great epics ground and unique experience: the streets of Edward wimper, the adventures of rock and ice of the famous Italian guides, French and Swiss during the Belle Epoque and the extraordinary rock and ice routes opened in the period between the two world wars.
A doodle to celebrate an historic: the choice of Google today is to remember the 229esimo anniversary of the first ascent of Mont Blanc. It was on August 8, 1786 and the ‘heroes’ of the Ascension were, as mentioned, Jacques Balmat and Michel Gabriel Paccard. The two climbers reached the summit after 14 hours from the start and remained there for about half an hour.

The scientist Horace-Benedict de Saussure was raffled, in 1760, three guineas to those who had conquered the summit of Mont Blanc: mission accomplished only after 26 years. They spent 26 years before his dream came true. The company had been preceded by some surveys, one of which Balmat was lost and was forced to spend the night in the snow, then eventuality considered dangerous, as to leave no hope, because of the temperature.
The rise was followed constantly with the telescope by the Prussian baron Adolf von Gersdorff that from a hill above the town of Chamonix followed step by step movements write it down in a journal.
The thirties, then, saw the race “last great walls” by legendary personalities such as Riccardo Cassin and Pierre Allain, the Second World War instead saw the spotlight extraordinary figures such as Walter Bonatti and René Desmaison.

Today, the great exploits of champions such as Christophe Profit, Michel Piola and Patrick Gabarrou, alongside lesser-known adventures of thousands of climbers from all over the globe whose greatest desire is to climb Mont Blanc.
The first ascent of Mont Blanc from the Italian side dates back to August 13, 1863 and was completed by three guides of Courmayeur, Julien Grange, Adolphe Orset and Jean-Marie Perrod, with English Reginald Head and is known as the path of the Trois Mont Blanc , a name inspired by the three peaks, which, like the steps of a scale suitable for giant, brought them to the top: Tacul, Maudit, Mont Blanc.
With its 4810.02 meters high (last official measure in September 2013] is the highest mountain in the Alps, Italy, France and Central Europe in general, and of granitic, bristling with spiers and ridges, carved by deep valleys in which flow numerous glaciers. he shares with Mount Elbrus in the Caucasus at a place between so-called Seven Summits of the Planet.
The first ever winter ascent was completed January 31, 1876 by Miss I. Straton, Jean Charlet, Sylvain Couttet, for Grand Mulets and the ridge of the Bosses.

The first winter crossing was completed January 5, 1887 by Alexander, Corradino, Erminio and Vittorio Sella, Emile Rey, Jean Joseph, and Daniel Baptiste Maquignaz, and two carriers. They went the way of the Rocher de la Tournette and descended from Grand Mulets day.
The first woman to reach the summit was Marie Paradis July 14, 1808 accompanied by his son Gédéon 14 years and as a guide Jacques Balmat. The company earned its the name of Marie du Mont Blanc. The second female ascension has instead been made by Henriette Angeville of September 4, 1838, while the first woman to make the climb during the winter was Mary Isabella Stratton January 31, 1876 along with Jean Charlet, Sylvain Couttet Balmat and Michel. A Marguette Bouvier, in 1929, developed the first ski descent made by a woman.
