Under the rebranding, Google will retain its best-known businesses, such as search, apps, YouTube and Android.
Some of the newer entities, such as the investment and research divisions, the “smart-home” unit Nest, and the drone arm will be run under Alphabet.
Google founder Larry Page said it would create a simpler structure for what had become a diverse group of businesses.
“This new structure will allow us to keep tremendous focus on the extraordinary opportunities we have inside of Google,” he said in the blogpost.”Our company is operating well today, but we think we can make it cleaner and more accountable,” he said. “The whole point is that Alphabet companies should have independence and develop their own brands.”
Mr Page will become chief executive of Alphabet, with senior vice president Sundar Pichai becoming CEO of Google.
Mr Page’s fellow Google co-founder Sergey Brin will become president of Alphabet, and Eric Schmidt, the current Google chairman, will be executive chairman of the holding company.
What’s in a name?
Google’s new chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, will hold the same title for both Google and Alphabet.
BGC Partners’ investment analyst Colin Gillis said the new structure should give investors greater clarity on strategy and how much Google was spending on new products.

Precariato – Ordinanza della Corte

dall’intervista all’avocato De Michele

Ma perché la Corte costituzionale non è autonoma nel suo giudizio? Non poteva risolvere la Corte il problema del precariato scolastico, visto che tutti i giudici di merito attendevano la decisione della Consulta?

Corte Precariato   Ordinanza della Corte Romano Pisciotti
Corte

“Senza dubbio è autonoma come organo costituzionale di garanzia, ma non credo che avrebbe potuto risolvere il problema del precariato scolastico più dello sforzo coraggioso già realizzato con l’ordinanza n. 207/2013 di rinvio pregiudiziale alla Corte di giustizia firmata dal Presidente Mattarella. C’era innanzitutto un problema enorme, giuridico, di ammissibilità delle questioni di legittimità costituzionale delle sette ordinanze dei Tribunali di Trento, Roma e Lamezia Terme, che avevano puntato solo ed esclusivamente alla sanzione del risarcimento dei danni e non della stabilizzazione ed avevano indicato come norma da dichiarare illegittima per contrasto con la direttiva soltanto l’art.4, comma 1, della legge n.124/1999. Del resto, mi pare che la confusione regni sovrana nella giurisprudenza di merito: Corte di giustizia (sentenza Mascolo, punto 116), Cassazione (sentenza n.10127/2012) e Corte costituzionale (ordinanza n.207/2013) sono univoche nell’escludere la possibilità che si applichi il risarcimento dei danni di cui all’art.36, comma 5, d. lgs. n.165/2001, mentre i giudici di merito continuano prevalentemente a inventarsi le soluzioni più fantasiose sul risarcimento dei danni, dimostrando ampiamente di aver perso la bussola. Quindi, non è che la Corte costituzionale, dopo aver escluso il risarcimento dei danni, avrebbe potuto individuare una sanzione effettiva diversa da quella ritenuta adeguata dalla Corte di giustizia, cioè la stabilità lavorativa dopo il superamento dei 36 mesi – tutto compreso, anche gli spezzoni di cattedra, le supplenze fino al termine delle attività didattiche, le sostituzioni effettive, oltre alle supplenze annuali -, perché la norma è chiara e non ammette un’applicazione ‘limitativa’ rispetto alla tipologia di supplenza. E anche per consentire l’applicazione dell’art. 5, comma 4 bis, d.lgs. n. 368/2001, la Corte costituzionale avrebbe dovuto fare i salti mortali e andare molto oltre le sue possibilità operative”.

He ordered samples from Fangio’s body be taken to try to resolve paternity cases brought by two men in their seventies claiming to be his sons.
Fangio won the F1 world championship five times in the 1950s.
He never married and did not declare any children, but his biographers say that he had a two-decade relationship with a woman.
Her son, Oscar Espinosa, had a brief spell in Formula 3 and was known by colleagues as “Cancho” Fangio.

Hackers target internet address bug to disrupt sites

Hackers are exploiting a serious flaw in the internet’s architecture, according to a security firm.

84650535 gettyimages 480887709 300x169 Hackers target internet address bug to disrupt sites Romano Pisciotti

The bug targets systems which convert URLs into IP addresses.
Exploiting it could threaten the smooth running of internet services as it allows hackers to launch denial-of-service attacks on websites, potentially forcing them offline.
Regular internet users are unlikely to be severely affected, however.
Bind is the name of a variety of Domain Name System (DNS) software used on the majority of internet servers.
The recently identified bug allows attackers to crash the software, therefore taking the DNS service offline and preventing URLs, for example, from working.
A patch for the flaw is already available, but many systems are yet to be updated.
The Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), which develops Bind, said in a tweet that the vulnerability was “particularly critical” and “easily exploited”.

Russia makes renewed bid for contentious Arctic regions

Russia has renewed its efforts to get the United Nations to recognise 1.2 million sq km (463,000 sq miles) of the Arctic shelf that it lays claim to.

It made a similar move for the resource-rich territory in 2001, but that was rejected by a UN commission because of insufficient evidence.
Russia’s foreign ministry said the fresh bid is backed by scientific data.
But all other countries bordering the Arctic – Norway, Denmark, Canada and the US – reject Moscow’s claim.
All five nations have been trying to assert jurisdiction over parts of the Arctic, which is believed to hold up to a quarter of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas.
The competition for Arctic resources has intensified in recent years as the shrinking polar ice opens new opportunities for exploration.

Russia said its new submission to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf contained new arguments.
“Ample scientific data collected in years of Arctic research are used to back the Russian claim,” Russia foreign ministry said in a statement.
Russia previously staked a claim to the Arctic seabed in 2007 by dropping a canister containing the Russian flag on to the ocean floor from a submarine at the North Pole.
The new move comes a week after the Kremlin said it was strengthening its naval forces in the Arctic as part of a new military doctrine.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said the plans included a new fleet of icebreakers.
Earlier this year, Russia’s military conducted exercises in the Arctic that involved 38,000 servicemen, more than 50 surface ships and submarines and 110 aircraft.

U-boat

U boat U boat Romano Pisciotti
U boat

U-boat is the anglicised version of the German word U-Boot [ˈuːboːt] , a shortening of Unterseeboot, literally “undersea boat”. While the German term refers to any submarine, the English one (in common with several other languages) refers specifically to military submarines operated by Germany, particularly in the Firstand Second World Wars. Although at times they were efficient fleet weapons against enemy naval warships, they were most effectively used in an economic warfare role (commerce raiding), enforcing a naval blockadeagainst enemy shipping. The primary targets of the U-boat campaigns in both wars were the merchant convoys bringing supplies from Canada, the British Empire, and the United States to the islands of the United Kingdom and (during the Second World War) to the Soviet Union and the Allied territories in the Mediterranean.

Liberty ship

The Liberty ship was a class of cargo ship built in the United States during World War II. Though British in conception, the design was adapted by the U.S. for its simple, low-cost construction. Mass produced on an unprecedented scale, the now iconic Liberty ship came to symbolize U.S. wartime industrial output.

The class was developed to meet British orders for transports to replace those torpedoed by German U-boats. The vessels were purchased both for the U.S. fleet and lend-lease deliveries of war materiel to Britain and the Soviet Union. Eighteen American shipyards built 2,710 Liberty ships between 1941 and 1945, easily the largest number of ships produced to a single design.

Their production mirrored on a much larger scale the manufacture of the Hog Islander and similar standardized ship types during World War I. The immensity of the effort, the sheer number of ships built, the vaunted role of Rosie the Riveters in their construction, and the survival of some far longer than their original five-year design life, all make them the subject of much continued interest.

 

Only a handful remain in 2015, two as operational museum ships.
