Livigno in October opening of the fund and December ski slopes

On October 15, skiing back to the bottom ring, while on December 1 officially starts the winter season with the opening of the slopes.

From October 15th to Livigno, it will open the bottom track, made with 50,000 cubic meters of snow that have been preserved during the summer season with snowfarm technique. Last winter, 100,000 cubic meters of snow were stored, of which 20 percent was dissolved in the summer, 30,000 were used for the Contrade Trophy (summer skiing event on true snow) and the remaining 50,000 will be used to open the bottom ring.

With such an anticipated opening over the other locations, Livigno becomes the ideal destination for training a large number of international teams and international athletes and biathlon riders coming down from the glaciers to train at an altitude of 1816 mt, perfect for the High Altitude Training .

For those who love skiing and snowboarding, just wait on December 1, when the winter season will be officially inaugurated with the opening of the ski slopes.

December 2 will be the turn of the 28th edition of Sgambeda, the granite of Livigno that is part of the international circuit “Visma Ski Classics”.

On the theme of scheduled snowfall, Livigno has embarked on an innovative road, taking part in the “Prosnow” European project of vast breath that also involves eight Alpine resorts. The optimization of programmed snow production is an important challenge for ski resorts. Today, the required water volumes are estimated at the beginning of the season on often unclear bases (eg, the worst ever recorded, with a observation period limited to one or two decades), and the decision to produce or not is generally taking the same day depending on weather conditions.

The Prosnow project, co-ordinated by Météo-France with 12 European partners, aims to develop a decision support service for ski resorts, based on weather forecasts (several days) and at the same time seasonal (several months).

This is a new tool that will provide meteorological information directly available to ski area operators (eg snow / snow stock), along with specific information on forecast uncertainties. Eight pilot stations in the Alps of France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany will contribute to the development of the service and to test the “demonstrator”.

The project will last for 3 years and has been submitted in response to the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Green Economy initiative, which is associated with the social challenge 5 “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials”, with objectives for research based on the market for climate services. In addition to the latest generation forecasts, the project will also be based on the new seasonal forecasting services developed at European level under the Copernicus Climate Change Services (C3S) program.

Apple Watch, WatchOS update: 2 will be the revolution of smartwatch?

Native apps and more independence from smartphones could change everything, first of all the applications themselves

Looking at the long term, the announcement of Apple’s biggest event of the fall this year may be less than advertised: development WatchOS 2. Tomorrow will be released and the new release will be a day that could change the relationship we have had up for now with smartwatch. The new operating system from Cupertino, designed specifically for the smart watch, is designed to make the app faster and smoother, since it will run natively on Apple Watch, plus introduces new dials, the ability for third-party app to display information in the form of notifications and an innovative way to see the future events, past and more with Time Travel.

But not only, the OS also includes new communication features such as the ability to respond quickly in Mail with dictation, Smart Replies or emoji, while Digital Touch free creativity, allowing you to use more colors for their own designs.

These components may be the first step to the final explosion of a market that so far only showed great potential. Native apps will allow developers to make the most of the components of the smartwatch, with results currently unthinkable. For example, a dating app could guide us to the soul mate simply following the vibration on the wrist, or an application designed to make you lose weight might block you access to Facebook and Candy Crush, until you have done the right move daily.

Until now smartphone and smartwatch are not comparable as regards the debut: as reported on the US site Techcrunch, in the first quarter sales of mobile phones sold 334 million pieces, watches only 11. But the state of the art in recent years it has changed and the room for maneuver for wearable devices was much narrower than that of the new phones. Yet change and greater independence from the iPhone and the company could revolutionize everything, creating a new need and opening space for new apps, all new and completely rethought. Who knows if it will be the beginning of the decline of smartphones, what is certain is that the smartwatch are intended to carve out an increasingly large and if the foresight of the developers (and Apple) will be repaid, tomorrow will all feel the need to buy us a new watch.

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.

The first ascent of Mont Blanc, an August 8

229 years ago: The expedition was organized by a famous scientist, but to reach the summit for the first time were a doctor and a crystal-digger.
The first ascent of Mont Blanc took place 229 years ago, on Aug. 8, 1786: the first to arrive at the top were the crystal hunter Jacques Balmat and the doctor Michel Gabriel Paccard, to 18.23, and remained there for just under forty minutes, during which it carried the scientific measurements. With its 4810 meters, the Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps and Europe except the Caucasus, The expedition was organized by the famous scientist Horace-Benedict de Saussure, who according to some reconstructions had even promised a reward to anyone who would go up first of Mont Blanc. De Saussure was mainly specialized in the study of glaciers, and for this many years studying the Mont Blanc massif, planning to make the measurements for yourself.

Paccard had graduated in Turin and had already attempted the climb in 1783. Balmat instead was an expert of the mountains around Chamonix, and it was with great athleticism. They decided to organize an expedition together for convenience, although did not go over well: the idea of ​​Paccard was not to go the traditional route with which it had been attempted the ascent earlier that the Grands Mullets, but to divert first to reach the Dôme du Goûter, through the Grand Plateau, under the north face of Mont Blanc. They risked to go back, because the daughter was ill and the Balmat crystal hunter wanted to go back (he died later that day). After reaching the summit and made the measurements, Balmat and Paccard began the descent: it got dark quickly, but the two had chosen a full moon night, and were able to camp out.
The date of the first ascent of Mont Blanc coincides with the birth of mountaineering that day began the so-called “phase of conquest” of mountaineering, where one by one were climbing all the mountains of the Alps over four thousand meters high. When in 1865 Edward Whymper reached the last major peak, the Matterhorn, the nature of mountaineering was changed: if in the beginning the reasons for the climb were mostly scientific, soon he asserted the idea of ​​mountaineering as a sporting gesture. Today in the center of Chamonix a statue of Balmat showing the Mont Blanc de Saussure remembers the first ascent.

Cortina d'Ampezzo

Race solo towards the award

Tomorrow the official delivery of applications, Austria and Germany in fact support that Ampezzo.

CORTINA. The Queen of the Dolomites could be alone in the race to host the Alpine World Ski Championships of 2021.

Tomorrow they will have to deposit the International Ski Federation (FIS) applications for review 2021. Cortina yesterday has started the paperwork to make the payment of 200,000 Swiss francs needed to file the application. Until tomorrow anything can happen, but according to well informed Cortina could run alone. Apparently the world FIS has very clear that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to beat Cortina, his fifth nomination. Some federations, such as the Austrian or German, also hinted that Cortina deserved to get the World Cup 2019. In Barcelona, ​​the last Congress Fis, the festival in 2019 was assigned to the town in Sweden Are, for an extra point Cortina. Austria and Germany in fact already support the candidature of Cortina 2021.L’Austria will be a candidate for the World Cup in 2023 and by the end of summer the Austrian Federsci will decide whether to pursue Saalbach, which hosted the event in 1991 or St . Anton headquarters of the World Cup 2001. Germany is a candidate instead for the Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf in 2021 and then to the Alpine supports the Ampezzo valley.

Cortina, after months lost the referendum, is distributed by the decision of the city council on September 29, 2014. The country is a candidate to host the World Cup, the City will contribute to the initiative and the institutional committee will be formed by the City Government, Region and Province.

In council Tuesday night was I press note of the outcome of the referendum of 12 April, in which he won a willingness to reapply Cortina World Cup. He then instructed the mayor Andrea Franceschi to bring forward the first practice ahead of the official formalization of the committee in 2021.

“By paying the fee to the FIS are officially candidates,” says Franceschi, “we had to carry out the first step as a municipality as to wait for the time of the referendum had not yet signed by the notary the birth of the committee in 2021, which then would have to open a bank account and make the payment to the FIS. We again got the support of the Italian Winter Sports Federation. President Fisi, Flavio Roda, has guaranteed maximum support and waiting to get in contact with the committee 2021. Roda however already by resolution of the council of 29 September had promoted the candidacy in the FIS world. ”

The committee will sit the mayor representing the City, Roberto Padrin for the Province and Mr Roger De Menech for the government. They then wait for the regional elections to see who will be the representative of the Region. The hypothesis is that the commissioner Belluno to Venice.

“We’re trying to see if the committee formalizing the notary before the regional elections,” concludes Franceschi, “and insert after the regional representative, or do anything after. Once elected, the Committee shall in turn appoint a president and will then be involved in the work all economic categories of Cortina and you will create an operating staff. ”

The imperative is to work together, united, without controversy, or “back-stabbing”, as they were defined by the deputy mayor Enrico Pompanin, for the same goal; the World Cup in 2021 in Cortina.
