Noi siamo come il mare

Non abbiamo combattuto sotto i bastioni di Orione per disperdere il nostro coraggio sulla spiaggia dei comuni denominatori. Non abbiamo navigato, dove altri hanno perso la speranza, per essere schiavi di banali pregiudizi.
Abbiamo vestito il mantello del comando, con giudizio e devozione, in una missione che non ha fine in un porto tranquillo, ma continuerà nel meraviglioso ripetersi del cielo. Noi siamo come il mare: forti e innamorati della Luna. Non è tempo di morire, non c’è un tempo per morire se avete respirato il brillare del sole sull’oceano e la densa calma di notti senza vento. I marinai vivono l’eternità delle maree.
(Romano Pisciotti)

Il sale dei ricordi

Il sale dei ricordi: sapore del tempo e di giorni divisi in quarti.
Notti solo assopite in pensieri abituati a viaggiare lontano per abbracciare persone amate e celebrare riti familiari.

Un caffè scuro per aprire gli occhi sull’orizzonte.

La prua viaggia verso il giorno, la notte si asciuga in un freddo chiarore e il sole ha già iniziato a dipingere in cielo striature arancioni sfumate nell’oro, mentre l’azzurro, sempre più intenso, cancella le ultime tracce nere della notte.

Il mare si spalanca nella luce e tu, piccolo uomo, sai che Nettuno, anche oggi, ti lascerà passare.

The perception of risk

The whole process is based on the so-called risk perception, since there can not be prevention without perception. Unfortunately, the limits of human nature in this regard are well known. Although variable from person to person, it is well known that the perception of the risk of the individual is high only in cases where it has already personally experienced the emergence of the consequences of a risk.

As strange as it may seem, the common attitude is to underestimate the possibility that something that has already gone wrong in the past may have happened to us too. This is well demonstrated by statistical studies that show how the most common and ruinous causes of design disasters are always the same, to demonstrate how project managers and designers tend not to learn from mistakes made by others in the past even in projects very similar to their own.

RISK

In general, numerous researches show that the tendency is not to think adequately about possible problems and to protect themselves accordingly, unless they are evidence that is really difficult to ignore.

Given the correspondence between uncertainty and risk, the project manager will simply have to assume that his project will run into risks.

Great President

 

Nigerian facts: the presidential elections have been postponed for a week … I leave to others the various speculations about this decision and, as I have not done before, I do not go into the merits of the programs or the aptitudes of the candidates. I’m sure that both candidates do not need to read my notes, so more than a message is my humble opinion and hope: I like to think that God, before creating the universe, dreamed it. Whoever will be the new President, I like to think that he has a dream to realize, obviously not as big as the universe, but green… like hope, like the buds, like the Nigerian flag….

 

Oh… Great President and father, slow down your path, in doing so, you will be able to see the wonderful smile of young Nigerians.

 

Nigeria is the heart of Africa; young people are African hope for the future.

 

Young people have strong hands like the experienced fishermen of the great river, like their peasant fathers, curvet over the greedy soil, but never bent in their intimate pride; young have strong legs and long footstep, like skilled hunters, and their eyes as bright as the ancient warriors.

The womb of the young is fertile, like their spirit, like the lands washed by the Niger and the Benue.

Their mind has eyes to look far, farther than the boundaries and the horizon, far beyond where their parents could look.

Their soul, rich in ancestral traditions, has learned to live in the equilibrium on the heights of urban skyscrapers and in the overflowing traffic of megalopolis: their heart beats with passion, hope and … megabyte.

 

Africa is hungry for knowledge and young people are even hungrier to know about the world and the things it offers. They want to be scientists or poets, doctors and aviators … or just honest workers, equally honourable and proud. Loving mothers and caring fathers…all citizens of a beloved and respected country.

 

All the young people on the planet have the same expectations, they need the same opportunities.

 

Oh… Great President, you will be their guide on the path of knowledge: thinking about their education, their health and taking charge of their rights … without forgetting their dreams. Let the dream of the Great Country be everyone’s dream.
