Ciaopeople interviews Viviane Reding

Viviane RedingOn the occasion of Safer Internet Forum, that took place last September, Ciaopeople interviews Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for Information and Media Society, to talk about children's and teenagers' on-line safety.

Safer Internet Forum, organized every year by European Commission since 2004, provides an European platform through which industries of this field, legal authorities and politicians can face issues regarding on-line safety. So Ciaopeople, as representative of Italian social networks, decided to interview Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for Information and Media Society.

Viviane Reding has underlined her interest in social networks, specifying that this phenomenon is changing remarkably "the way we get in touch, the way we search for information, the way we have fun. But, it has also given innovative tools for the management of human resources, customer service and advertising. These networking sites have transformed people in active users of technology, but we must not forget that these changes involve new challenges too. Their great popularity among teenagers creates serious problems, concerning on-line data and privacy protection".

Moreover, the European Commissioner explained that she is well-disposed to self-regulation: "As a member of the Social Christian Party of Luxembourg, I obviously stand up for an efficient self-regulation of industry compared to the creation of a new legislation. But – and as the issue of SMS roaming has confirmed – self-regulation of industry can be considered as an option, if interested stakeholders accept it and when it is actually implemented. I think it's important that 17 social networks, operating in Europe – for example MySpace, FaceBook, YouTube, Bebo, Hyves, StudiVZ and Skyrock – have decided to talk about a common set of guide-lines to assure on-line safety, in particular for children, and to improve the transparency of their utilities".

Ciaopeople is a rather large social network that has reached about 500.000 members, mostly teenagers. From the start, Ciaopeople has tried to make a safe virtual platform for its users and now, as a large chat, it underlines the importance of internet safety. Indeed, this firm wants to provide a safe on-line space for its users, in which those who surf the net will be able to find only the best aspects of the net, such as entertainment, socializing and interaction.

As a representative of Italian social networking, Ciaopeople wants to understand Italy's role in these changes: for this reason, European Commissioner mentioned two important Italian projects, financed by European Safer Internet Plus program, EASY (http://www.easy4.it) and STOP-IT (http://www.stop-it.org) managed by Save the children Italy Organization, in partnership with Adiconsum, consumers association.

In addition, the Commissioner asked social networks to agree to the European Social Networking Task Force, which is working to make a "code of conduct", that will be ready in 2009. It operates under the supervision of the European Commission.
Internet Safety is a moral obligation for social networking firms, legal authorities, politicians and people in general. So www.ciaopeople.com will agree to the guide-lines of this new code of conduct.

The Museo Regional de Durango 'El Aguacate' in Durango to host Jackie Sleper's latest exhibition dedicated to Mexico

UN GRITO DE DOLOR Y ESPERANZA - Jackie SleperIn November and December 2008, Dutch artist Jackie Sleper will exhibit "Dulce y Amargo" in the Museo Regional de Durango "El Aguacate", Durango, Mexico

From 5 November - 19 December 2008, the Museo Regional "El Aguacate" in Durango, Mexico, will host the famous Dutch artist's, Jackie Sleper, touring exhibition "Dulce y Amargo" inspired by, and dedicated to, Mexi co and the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and curated by Matty Roca.

Jackie Sleper, the winner of the section "Sculpture and Installation" at the Florence Biennale 2007, has always been fascinated by Mexico and the artist Frida Kahlo, for whom she has a profound admiration and so, when she received an offer from Matty Roca to depict her vision of Mexico she readily accepted. Over the course of the following two years, Jackie Sleper spent many months in situ, about which she says "I took in everything around me, spoke with lots of people and, in particular, got a sense of the country. My previous love of Mexico only grew stronger."

Her works are at times reminiscent of a variety of artists: Rivera, Orozco, Tamayo and Pollock. Jackie Sleper assumes absolute freedom in applying various techniques and introducing experimental elements: her work is characterised by combinations of photography and painting, and the use of mixed media. In addition to painting, Jackie also creates objects using a variety of materials, which she then transforms into wholly a new and surprising entity, such a the wonderful and fun piece "Rocatizada", dedicated to her curator Matty Roca. The artist other works to be guided by a profound sense of humanity, and she is an artist in the truest sense of the word, her work has always been grounded in her exploration of the human existence and its significance. The art critic, Wim Van der Beek said about Jackie's work prior to her 2007 Netherlands exhibition: "Jackie Sleper's aim is not to shock, but to make things tangible and manageable. She does not want to magnify injustices, but to offe r solutions in the form of positive and unorthodox ways of seeing."

The Durango show is the fourth and last step in 2008 of Jackie's touring exhibition and she is delighted to be holding in a city which she feels has a close link with her own home town of Utrecht. The museum, "El Aguacate", is known by this name Aguacate, or avocado, due to the avocado tree planted in the garden. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city centre, built in 1890 and was the residence of the family of Francisco Gomez Palacio, son of the famous governor.

Jackie's exhibitions showing throughout Mexico in 2008 and 2009 are all being curated by Matty Roca, art historian, museum curator and art critic. They have so far been a huge success, the first was held at the Museo de la Cultura Maya in Chetumal in March and April of this year, in May-June at the Museo de la Isla in Cozumel, and most recently at the Museum of Modern Art of Gómez Palacio in July and August.

The artist will, as always, be present at the vernissage of "Dulce y Amargo" on 5 November, at the Museo El Aguacate, along with important local personalities from the political, cultural and educational scene in Mexico and from the Dutch and European communities living in the state of Durango.

Jackie Sleper was born in Amsterdam and studied at the Utrecht Academy for Visual Arts. Between 1988 and 1995 she spent time in Ireland, Spain and Prague for study purposes. Works produced in her home country, the Netherlands, include a tile plateau in honour of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, commissioned by the municipality of Utrecht, and 'light objects' for the Kruisheren Hotel, a design establishment that opened in Maastricht in 2005. Outside the Netherlands, she has exhibited in Antwerp (Art-Event), Stockholm (Art Fair), Marbella (Marb Art – Feria Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo), Geneva (Europ'Art), Klagenfurt (Biennale Austria), Salzburg (Mozart Festival), Florence (Museo Diocesano and Biennale Internazionale dell'Arte Contemporanea), Milan (Studio D'Ars), New York (Carrozzini Von Buhler Gallery and CVB Space), and in Mexico. One of her sculptures, "Modestia", was exhibited during the Venice Biennale, at Open 2007. She won the 1st prize for "Sculpture and Installation" at the Florence Biennale 2007.

La Borsa italiana: cos'e' e come funziona

La Borsa è un mercato fondato su regole precise in cui vengono scambiate determinate merci, che possiamo definire "strumenti finanziari". Le merci scambiate in Borsa sono soprattutto azioni, quote parte del capitale sociale di un'azienda, ma non solo. Rispetto al passato nella Borsa non vi è più nulla di fisico: il salone delle grida, gli agenti di cambio...sono un lontano ricordo e, ormai dal 1994, l'intero listino è informatizzato.
Da ciò deriva la possibiltà, ormai nota, del Trading online, uno strumento che consente di operare in borsa anche ai piccoli risparmiatori.

Solitamente, quando si parla di Borsa, si pensa immediatamente alle azioni, ma la Borsa è in realtà un mercato diversificato, dove sono trattati strumenti finanziari sempre più complessi. Proprio a causa di quest'ampia varietà di prodotti, si è reso necessario nel tempo ripartire la Borsa in più segmenti, secondo la logica di "un mercato per ogni tipologia di strumento finanziario". I mercati regolamentati operanti nel nostro paese sono diversi.

A seconda dei prodotti finanziari scambiati, la borsa si articola in comparti operativi: 1) Azionario (MTA - Mercato Telematico Azionario), in cui si scambiano i titoli azionari quotati in Borsa. A sua volta, questo mercato si suddivide in: a. Blue Chip, b. Star, c. Standard, d. MTA International, e. MTF (Mercato Telematico dei Fondi). 2) SEDEX , 3) After Hours (TAH), 4) MOT (Mercato Telematico dei Titoli di Stato e delle Obbligazioni), 5) Contratti a premio (MTR), relativi ad azioni, obbligazioni convertibili, warrant quotati e diritti di opzione, 6) IDEM (Italian Derivates Market).

Nuovo Mercato. È un mercato che si rivolge alle imprese dotate di maggiori contenuti innovativi e con alte prospettive di crescita. Permette inoltre di dare una forte visibilità europea alle imprese quotate, in quanto il Nuovo Mercato fa parte del circuito Euro.NM, alleanza di mercati azionari per le imprese innovative.

Mercato ristretto. È il mercato in cui vengono negoziate azioni, obbligazioni e warrant che non sono ammessi alle contrattazioni ufficiali di Borsa: tale mercato presenta infatti criteri di ammissione alle quotazioni meno severi rispetto al mercato principale, ma offre comunque all'investitore le stesse garanzie del mercato maggiore.

IDEM (Mercato Italiano dei Derivati). Nell'IDEM vengono trattati gli strumenti derivati come i contratti futures e i contratti di opzione aventi come attività sottostante strumenti come i tassi di interesse, valute...

Mercato dei blocchi. In esso troviamo pacchetti di azione, appunto "in blocco", ovvero con quantitativi così alti che la loro negoziazione sul mercato azionario principale uno spostamento delle quotazioni (verso l'alto in caso di un grosso ordine di acquisto, verso il basso in caso di vendita): per evitare questa situazione è stato previsto di scambiare questi pacchetti in tale mercato.

Terzo Mercato. È un mercato non regolamentato. Le contrattazioni, infatti, avvengono "spontaneamente" in un locale presso Piazza Affari, dove gli intermediari si scambiano titoli non ancora quotati nel mercato regolamentato.

Le possibilità, per chi vuole investire parte dei propri risparmi in Borsa, sono divrse: 1) essere un investitore individuale e agire in piena autonomia (attraverso il trading, lo strumento più immediato e meno costoso; appoggiandosi alla propria banca); 2) scegliere la strada del risparmio gestito, affidandosi a un professionista dell'investimento (si possono sottoscrivere quote di un fondo o affidarsi a una gestione patrimoniale).

A New Global Leader in Mobile Entertainment is Born

For more information http://www.neomobile.it/media/Neomobile_acquires_Arena_Mobile_EN.pdf

Roma and Barcelona, October 21st, 2008

Neomobile SpA (“Neomobile”), the leading Italian player in the mobile entertainment D2C Sector, and Spain’s Arena Mobile (“Arena”), the global B2B mobile content provider, announce the signing of an agreement that will lead to the birth of a major player in the global Mobile Entertainment Industry – the Neomobile Group.

Operating in the market since 2004, Neomobile has in just a few years achieved a prominent role in the Italian market. The experience gained in Italy, considered to be one of the most advanced and competitive mobile entertainment markets has allowed Neomobile to successfully set-up operations at international level in Turkey, Spain, and this year in Brazil. Neomobile markets directly to consumers (D2C) a wide variety of content and services, having developed an innovative approach to address the widest possible audience, yet guaranteeing a consistently high level of customer experience. In 2007 alone, more than 2,5 mln unique users downloaded Neomobile digital contents.

Arena Mobile, founded in 2001, is one of the pioneers of Mobile Value Added Services. Arena currently works with over 150 operators and media players in 70 countries, specializing in the provision of B2B content and solutions. Headquartered in Spain, Arena boasts local operations in Brazil, Mexico, France, UK, Portugal, Morocco, India, Singapore and Bangladesh, and has a presence also in USA, China and Japan.
Arena recently powered the “Music Box” service of TMN, the leading Mobile Operator in Portugal, awarded as one of most innovative Web&Mobile full-track store at European level.

Neomobile has acquired Arena in order to pursue two main strategic objectives:
1. expand and consolidate its global presence. Arena’s extensive content portfolio, broad international exposure and strong relationship with global operators media players will support Neomobile in consolidating its D2C operations in Spain and Brazil and act as a catalyst for rapid start-up of B2C operations in new markets.
2. extend and diversify its service offering. This deal allows Neomobile to enter the previously untapped B2B segment through Arena’s globally renowned brand. Furthermore Arena will also enable Neomobile’s core business to benefit from a faster time-to-market of cutting edge mobile content and innovative applications

Commenting on the transaction, Gianluca D’Agostino, CEO of Neomobile, said: “This deal represents a key milestone in Neomobile’s global growth strategy allowing us to accelerate our penetration in high potential markets, especially in Latin America and Asia Pacific regions and to bring a new B2B offering in those markets in which we have gained great expertise, such as Italy and Turkey. Arena Mobile has in the past proved to be an invaluable partner to Neomobile, and through this acquisition we look forward to establishing a tighter relationship between our complementary offerings and operations. I am confident that the synergies between the two companies will prove instrumental to further growth, allowing us to garner together the best business opportunities in the global scenario.”

Josep Anton Aliagas, CEO of Arena Mobile, added: “Neomobile is the partner we have been looking for to strengthen our business model and service offerings. We bring to the table a solid reputation and proven success story, having been a pioneer of the Mobile Entertainment Industry since 2000, edging technology and content, and serving global customers. Arena Mobile will be able to leverage Neomobile’s exposure in the global B2C market and contribute to improving its offering to operators. I have no doubt that this important move will benefit all parties involved and drive value generation. Current shareholders including myself will remain with the new Group, and are confident that this operation will add much value and contribute to the Neomobile Group becoming one of the leaders in the global mobile entertainment market in years to come.”

MARINA ABRAMOVIC to be awarded at the Florence Biennale

Marina Abramovic - The Family IPerformance artist Marina Abramovic to be awarded at the 7th Edition of the Florence Biennale. 5 – 13 December 2009, Fortezza da Basso

The seventh edition of the Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art will take place at the historic Fortezza da Basso in Florence from 5-13 December, 2009. Marina Abramovic, the acclaimed performance artist, will be the honoured guest at this edition and she will be awarded the Lorenzo il Magnifico prize.

800 artists coming from 80 countries will be exhibiting more than 2,500 artworks and there will be an extraordinary meeting of cultures, languages and diverse artistic styles. The Florence Biennale supports the United Nations program "Dialogue between civilizations", to which the Biennale has officially adhered since 2001.

As always, the Biennale will see the presence of important artists: In the 2007 edition, the "Lorenzo il Magnifico" career prize was conferred to Gilbert & George, for the 2005 edition to Christo and Jeanne-Claude and to Richard Anuszkiewicz and in 2003 to David Hockney. In the 2009 edition, Marina Abramovic will meet both the artists participating at the Biennale and visitors to the Biennale, in part of the rich calendar of conferences, meetings and video projections.

Marina Abramovic, born in 1946 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, is without question one of the seminal artists of our time. Since the beginning of her career in Yugoslavia during the early 1970s, where she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Abramovic has pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring the physical and mental limits of her being, she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in the quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. She creates works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life such as lying, sitting, dreaming and thinking. As a vital member of the generation of pioneering performance artists that includes Bruce Nauman, Vito Acconci, and Chris Burden, Abramovic created some of the most historic early performance pieces and is the only one still making important durational works.

From 1975 until 1988, Abramovic and the German artist Ulay performed together, dealing with relations of duality. After separating in 1988, Abramovic returned to solo performances in 1989. Abramovic has presented her work with performances, sound, photography, video, sculpture, and 'Transitory Objects for Human and Non Human Use' in solo and group exhibitions at major institutions in the U.S. and Europe. She has also taught and lectured extensively in Europe and America.

She was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale for her extraordinary video installation/performance piece Balkan Baroque‚ and in 2003 received the Bessie for The House with the Ocean View‚ a 12-day performance at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York. In 2005, Abramovic presented Balkan Erotic Epic at the Pirelli Foundation in Milan, Italy and at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York. That same year, she held a series of performances called Seven Easy Pieces at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. She is currently showing in a group exhibition "worlds on video" at t he Strozzina in Florence, Italy.

Abramovic's work is included in many major public collections worldwide.

Passion for Life at the Grand Palais in Paris

Passion for Life at the Grand Palais in ParisThe Salon des Artistes Indépendants will host the Passion for Life art exhibition in support of the Institut Curie at the Grand Palais: Together in the fight against cancer, 15 international artists will exhibit their artwork.

The next group art exhibition Passion for Life will be held from November 21-30, 2008 at the Grand Palais in Paris, in support of the Institut Curie.

One of the objectives of the Passion for Lif e program is to collect funds for the fight against cancer. The program was founded by Antoine Gaber, impressionist artist painter and cancer researcher in drug development mostly for cancer therapies. In each country where the Passion for Life exhibition has been held, the funds raised have been entirely donated to a charitable organization or a pre-selected, local association. In this upcoming event in November in Paris, Passion for Life will be supporting the Institut Curie. Founded in 1909 based on a conceptual model created by Marie Curie, the Institut Curie now brings together 2000 researchers, doctors and health care professionals, all working with the same aim: to find cures for cancer with speed. As a recognized Foundation with public support since 1921, the Institut Curie aims to make quickly available the most recent advancements in research with a multi-disciplinary approach, whilst bringing the best available treatments to cancer patients.

Participating Artis ts: Figen Begen, Mary Brilli, Diana Calvillo, Jean Pierre Faucher, Antoine Gaber, Marybel Gallegos, Sumio Inoue, Maz Jackson, Kosmas Kroussos, Leticia Leal, Sinae Lee, Martin J.A. Nijman, Marieta Reijerkerk, Goga Trascierra, Karel Vreeburg.

UbiEst announces the mobile location based service for family peace of mind

UbiSafe will be available for on-line purchase on italian market from 18 september

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept. 8 -- UbiEst SpA, leading Italian developer of location-based mobile services, today announced at the DEMOfall 08 conference a mobile application for personal security, contact locating and emergency needs. UbiSafe can be used for monitoring elder or invalid persons in need of attendance, for personal safety (at night, in walking risk zones, etc.) or for our children's security.

Unlike other already-marketed "child locators" working from a Web-based interface, UbiSafe is an all-mobile application bringing portability and everytime/everywhere access to contact locating directly from mobile phones. Furthermore UbiSafe is a mobile-to-mobile application that doesn't require dedicated GPS trackers, as localization can leverage on any GPS equipped handset.

UbiSafe comes as a mobile Java (and Java RIM) client enabling: verification and tracking of family memb ers' positions on the map; the ability to send/receive emergency messages; the set up of personalized "safe" zones (geo-fencing); and the creation of personalized notification rules (ie. when child leaves location).

Two main features bring UbiSafe in the forefront of technological innovation in LBS for personal security: parents can create a "virtual leash" for preventing children from moving out of sight and activating a chasing mode to track simultaneously the child's movements related to the parent's while trying to reach him. A graphic toolbar helps approach the target with basic colors: red for target moving apart, yellow for constant distance and green for approaching target.

The second feature is aimed to help adolescents enjoy greater freedom of movement ensuring tranquility of the parents: thanks to a GPS receiver, parents can be warned if a newly-licensed son/daughter exceeds an agreed-upon speed-limit by car or if a sudden breaking occurs.

"UbiSafe leverages the demand for contemporary solutions for safety and care in the family. It's a brilliant example of cutting-edge advanced technology applied to universal and down-to-earth needs," says Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences.

UbiSafe is planned to be marketed worldwide by TelCo Operators on a subscription model. In addition, it is appealing for device manufacturers (and retailers) and OEMs with post-sale code activation, promoting uptake of new advanced smartphone models.

UbiEst will also activate a direct selling channel from a dedicated ecommerce platform at www.ubisafe.com.

Fortunately, the spring was full of rain and for this the emergency drought and electrical blackouts seem averted.. Anyway, the Italian civil protection ensure that the worst is not yet past and will appear in the next two months, fortunately devoted mainly to holidays and summer vacation.

As every year, however, the indications from various institutions are useful and to respect for oneself but above all for the environment, such as to dole out the water of their water taps.

In particular, for the health of the elderly and children, the authorities always advised to avoid the dehydration by drinking at least 1.5 litres of water a day and avoid the hottest hours of the day, especially after lunch, where the organisation is already involved in digestion. In these terms, another valuable advice is to eat mainly fruit and vegetables strictly cold and in any case to stay light, without to get heavier too.

Usually to avoid, these boiling hours, it is advisable to pass them at home without taking the sun and avoid any physical activity and effort. In particular it is recommended, for who can to install air conditioners to wall and impose these with temperatures not less than 5-7 ° C compared to room temperature.

Of fundamental importance for the health, is the maintenance of these coolers and all the accessories for air conditioners used. This is to prevent malfunctions of this can lead to wrong measurements and observations, both temperature and humidity, which could be extremely harmful to the body that would suffer too many sudden changes between internal and external dwelling.

In particular, it should also be checked annually all vacuum pumps that if with a malfunction can lead to big energy wastage electric as regards the fuel gas, affecting significantly the performance with resulting damage, more than anything else , for the environment (greater demand and therefore more energy inputs to generate the same source cooler).

Precisely to avoid further problems related to the transmission of gas (fuel) from the counter to the air conditioner it should be reviewed periodically all the copper piping and the welds that eventually could be deteriorate and to exhale inside the gas with all the risks that it entails.

All this to say that it is exact try to combat the heat with the technology, but we must bear in mind other key issues: the environment, thanks to efficiency of equipment, and their health, security controls to avoid unpleasant drawbacks.

This will easily overcome these hot summer months, without incurring risks to their person and especially for the environment, which we must never forget we are directly and indirectly responsible and depend.

Eurotech announces the new Low Power ISIS PC/104+ board based on the Intel® Atom™ processor

EurotechLow Power ISIS PC/104+Eurotech has been working with Intel Corporation as an early adopter of Low Power Intel® Architecture (LPIA) devices. As a result of this work Eurotech have now released the new ISIS single board computer.

ISIS is a PC/104+ format device offering levels of functionality and performance traditionally requiring a high performance x86 board, but at a significantly reduced power consumption to less than 5 watts. This fanless x86 compatibility is achieved by harnessing the low power capabilities of the next generation embedded Intel® Atom™ chipset.

Using Intel's Hi-K 45nm technology the Intel® Atom™ Z500 series processor delivers the benefits of Intel x86 architecture in a robust, ultra-small package with exceptional performance-per-watt. The processor is matched with an Intel® System Controller Hub (SCH) US15W which is a highly integrated device combining a graphics memory controller and I/O controller into a single 22x22 mm package.

A full range of on board peripherals are provided including 8 x USB 2.0 ports, VGA, LVDS, HD-Audio, RS232/422/485, Ethernet, GPIO and IDE. Expansion requirements are well covered by a combination of PC/104 (ISA), PC 104+ (PCI) and PCI-Express Mini Card, so interfacing to real-world I/O or the latest wireless technology is easy.

The ISIS offers a choice of 1.1 and 1.6 GHz processor parts and comes with up to 1GB of DDR2 RAM and up to 4GB of soldered-down Flash for security and durability. Further solid-state Flash expansion is available via an SDIO socket. An optional ITrax300 GPS receiver with full Position/Velocity/Time functionality is also available.

Having all this performance in such a small package is a truly compelling offering that makes the ISIS ideally suitable for applications such as infotainment, interactive kiosks, access control, HMI, medical and industrial control.

A key feature of the ISIS is it's full compatibility with a wide range of desktop and pre-installed, ready to run, embedded operating systems including Windows Vista, Windows CE 6.0, Windows XP/XPe and Linux.

La dieta macrobiotica

Più che una dieta la macrobiotica è una vera e propria filosofia di vita, da makros e bios, letteralmente lunga, grande vita. Come la quasi totalità delle grandi filosofie proviene dall'oriente, dove è radicata da almeno 5000 anni. Niente di nuovo sotto il sole, ma per noi europei ed il resto del mondo questo tipo di alimentazione è nota dai primi del '900 quando George Ohsawa la portò alla ribalta del grande pubblico.

Alimenti base nella cucina macrobiotica sono i cereali, che devono essere non raffinati ed integrali, i grassi, tra i quali sono consentiti il burro di sesamo e l'olio extravergine di oliva (no a burro e margarina), i legumi, la cui acqua di cottura è consigliata come bevanda e le alghe.

Gli alimenti sono classificati in base alla loro componente Yin e Yang. Immaginiamo una scala graduata da 0 a 7, da una parte Yang positivo (da 0 a +7) dall'altra Yin negativo (da 0 a -7), ogni alimento avrà una sua classificazione in base al contenuto Yin e Yang. Sono Yin i cibi a componente acida, ad esempio latte, yogurt, frutta, , spezie. Sono invece Yang gli alimenti con componente alcalina, come la carne, il pesce, pollo, uova, sale. Tutto ciò che è agli estremi è dannoso ma può essere utilizzato come "medicina" quando è necessario curare uno squilibrio nella componente opposta. Il concetto è un po' difficile e non facilmente illustrabile in poche righe, per cui si rimanda alle centinaia di pubblicazioni specifiche per un approfondimento più completo.

Occorre evitare tutti i tipi di cibo pesantemente trattati e conservati a livello industriale e le ricette di cucina a base di prodotti troppo lavorati, è necessario utlizzare prodotti quanto più possibile non lavorati e naturali, soprattutto biologici. E' da eliminare tutto quanto dolcificato con zucchero e miele (crostate, torte, ecc), sono da evitare patate, pomodori, melanzane, latte e latticini in genere. E' da preferire il consumo di pesce alla carne ed è sconsigliato l'utilizzo di sale comune e/o spezie a favore del solo sale marino naturale. Un pasto sarà armonico se conterra conterrà il 50% di cereali integrali, il 25% di proteine di cui il 10% di origine animale e il 15% di origine vegetale, il 25% tra verdure (cotte e crude) e frutta. Per gli utensili da cucina sono consigliati il legno per i mestoli ed il bambù per i cestelli per cottura a vapore. Per le pentole e tegami è da utilizzare l'acciaio inossidabile o la terracotta. Da evitare gli utensili in alluminio perché andrebbero a modificare le proprietà ed il gusto dei cibi. Le cotture più indicate sono quella a pressione per cereali e legumi, e quella al vapore per i vegetali, pesce e carne, quelle sconsigliate sono quelle maggiormente elaborate quali sformati, torte salate, sughi grassi ed intingoli vari.

Italian food tradition: the polenta

Compared to the whole world Italy is a really small country but it has a very particular aspect that makes it different: having century of history and traditions that gave to Italy a deep variety in every single region of its territory.

Italy is composed of 21 districts and everyone of these has his own traditions and dialects and obviously every one has his own food tradition. The main Italian foods worldwide are pasta and pizza but if can travel Italy from North to South you can taste the local dishes unknown to the world.

For example the North of Italy, during Winter time, has a typical food made just with corn flour, the polenta. The versatility of polenta allows Italians to offer it in several ways but the most famous polenta recipe is to serve the authentic Italian polenta on a wood made dish with meat juice and sausages with Parmiggiano cheese. It needs to be served hot and in the North of Italy is a real tradition eaten almost every day during the cold winters. It is important to eat polenta with a good red wine.

The traditional polenta requires a long preparation that in the North of Italy becomes almost a family event. The polenta get usually eaten with many people or with the whole family so, since the early morning they begin to hot water and to stir the great quantity of polenta that needs hours to be ready to be served.

After a full morning of skiing it is traditional to drink wine and to eat the Italian polenta; in the last years to face the taste of more people possible, they started to offer polenta not only with meat juice but also with mushrooms, without juice, just with cheese or with some nouvelle cuisine ingredient like rare fish or vegetables.

In any case, the traditional polenta remains another precious element of Italian traditions and allows many people to enter in contact with the history of a part of Italy , the North one, full of history and traditions.
