DO YOU TRAVEL?

 

viaggi DO YOU TRAVEL? Romano Pisciotti

 

 

“To travel is to live”

It is a quote that motivate me a lot. It motivates me to always look forward to my next travel. It gives me the pleasure and energy to work harder between my vacations.

When having a vacation I enjoy:

  • The sun and beach. Relaxing at the most beautiful beaches in the world. The sun and beach for me is the same as an Iphone charger.
  • New cultures. Meeting new cultures and people is a great way to travel. I love to find the small restaurants and bars where locals catch-up on their everyday life. I love to have small interesting discussions and talks with the locals.
  • History of monuments, churhes, buildings and attractions are for me another way to experience other countries.
  • Running through the city day and night is fantastic way to be active. One of my favourite cities to run through is New York when it is evening near Hudson River. You will discover a wonderful view over the river with the skyline in the background.
  • Friends and family. Discover countries, cultures, history and more gives me and nearest friends some life experiences.
  • Shopping design, unique and limited things which I am not able to buy at home is something I think very interesting.

Genova: Ponte sul Polcevera – (Italy)

Bandiera a lutto Genova: Ponte sul Polcevera    (Italy) Romano Pisciotti

Il rispetto per i morti è sincero e dovuto, il rispetto e l’amore per questo Paese altrettanto…meno per i politicanti e i giornalai, ai quali ci si deve avvicinare con spirito critico.
Io sono convinto che le strutture vitali e i servizi di base di un Paese debbano essere principalmente, seppure non totalmente, pubbliche: acqua, luce, gas, ferrovie, telefonia, rete stradale…ecc…Tutto deve essere, ovviamente, ben gestito: non mancano esempi, o non sono mancati in passato, come non mancano speculazioni e ruberie. Non trovo esempi di efficienza in questo clima post-liberista.
Se non siamo il “paese dei campanelli” i servizi non devono avere scopo di lucro…o pensiamo di fare business con i Vigili del Fuoco o l’Arma dei Carabinieri o con l’acqua da bere e l’aria che respiriamo?
I ponti non si suicidano!!!! Crollo strutturale o atto di Dio sono sempre preceduti da incuria o errori….non stiamo parlando di un vascello in balia delle onde!
Vorrei ricordare che: “solo nel 2016, i ricavi da pedaggio di Atlantia sono ammontati a 4 miliardi. Per non parlare del fatto che, ogni anno, a gennaio arrivano puntualmente i rincari dei pedaggi in teoria giustificati dagli investimenti dei concessionari sulla rete autostradale. Negli anni, le autostrade si sono confermate una gallina dalle uova d’oro per i Benetton che le hanno acquistate a prezzi stracciati dallo Stato”.
Stato e privati sembrano congiurare contro gli utenti e nel caso del ponte sul Polcevera, come minimo, sono mancati il monitoraggio e il controllo da parte di Autostrade e da parte degli Enti preposti.
Lo Stato deve funzionare: è un nostro diritto e un dovere di tutti!!!!
Se, invece, l’Italia sta assomigliando al paese dei campanelli, me ne vergogno e lavorerò per migliorarla.

“only in 2016, Atlantia’s toll revenues amounted to € 4 billion, not to mention the fact that, every year, in January the toll price rises are justified in theory by the investments of the concessionaires on the motorway network. highways have confirmed the goose that laid the golden eggs for the Benetton who bought them at rock bottom prices “.

Quando crolla un maxi ponte, per di più sopra una città come Genova, allora dobbiamo capire che le Autostrade vanno nazionalizzate e gestite senza logiche di profitto. Se si confermerà il cedimento strutturale la revoca delle concessioni ad Autostrade sarebbe un atto dovuto e doveroso.

The first cargo ships passed through Egypt’s New Suez Canal

The first cargo ships passed through Egypt’s New Suez Canal on Saturday in a test-run before it opens next month, state media reported, 11 months after the army began constructing the $8 billion canal alongside the existing 145-year-old Suez Canal.

The new waterway, which President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi hopes will help expand trade along the fastest shipping route between Europe and Asia and give a boost to Egypt’s economy, will be formally inaugurated on Aug. 6.

Sisi wants the canal to become a symbol of national pride and to help combat Egypt’s double-digit unemployment. The old Suez Canal is already a vital source of hard currency for Egypt, which has seen tourism and foreign investment drain away in the years of turmoil since a 2011 uprising.

Three container ships crossed the new waterway, state news agency MENA reported. One was an American ship heading to Egypt’s Port Said from Saudi Arabia, another was a Danish ship sailing to the United States from Singapore, and a Bahraini ship going to Italy from Saudi Arabia.

The exercise took place amid tight security. An insurgency based in the Sinai Peninsula, which borders on the Suez Canal, has killed hundreds of soldiers and police since 2013. State television said there were helicopters circling above and showed naval vessels escorting the ships.

Mohab Mameesh, the chairman of the Suez Canal Authority who led the project, told state television from aboard the first ship that the test-run had been a success.

“This is the first trial crossing but it will be followed by more trials,” he said. “We are 99.2 percent done with everything. We should be completely done in two or three days.”

The existing canal earns Egypt around $5 billion per year. The new canal, which will allow two-way traffic of larger ships, is supposed to increase revenues by 2023 to $15 billion.

It should also reduce navigation time for ships to 11 hours from about 22 hours, Mameesh said last month, making it the fastest such waterway in the world.

The government also plans to build an international industrial and logistics hub nearby that it hopes will eventually make up about a third of the Egyptian economy. (Reporting by Omar Fahmy and Yusri Mohamed; Writing by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky)
