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.

Mountain: 10 must have accessories

abbigliamento-montagna
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 brands specialize with new technologies: fabrics light but ultra warm, natural yarns prized (and more accessible) and new combinations of materials.

The accessories for the mountains, therefore, must be simple but ensure high performance.

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.

Comes the Kit Kat coated with 24 carat gold

In Japan, the famous chocolate snack is celebrated with a luxurious limited edition: 500 bars a dark, covered with a thin sheet of gold
“Life is not black and white, is gold,” read the TV commercial of a famous perfume (yes, the one where the supermodel Carmen Kass immersed himself gradually into a pool of gold paint). “Even the mid-afternoon snack is gold” it seems to contradict today Nestlé, who in recent days has presented a novelty for true lovers of luxury: a limited edition of the snack Kit Kat, covered with a paper of 24 carat gold.
Just like that. To celebrate the milestone of one million customers of the Kit Kat Chocolatory stores, 500 bars were made special for the Japanese market. Dark chocolate, with a taste even richer and more bitter, and especially coated gold film. The price? 2016 yen, just over 15 Euros. The flashy snacks appear on the shelves of eight stores located in various parts of Japan, next to unusual variations in green tea, strawberry and wasabi that – apparently – like so much to customers of Japan.

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.
