I ritratti “a 45 giri” di personaggi
che hanno fatto la storia

C’è la poetessa che risponde con tre poesie in stile “Haiku”, c’è il navigante che riempie pagine e pagine di ricordi, c’è il pugile che racconta il suo incontro più difficile: quello con una malattia. Quarantuno personaggi si raccontano nell’ultimo libro di Massimo Baraldi,  “Tre giorni nella vita – ritratti a 45 giri (al minuto)” (Multimedia Edizioni, 2019), nel modo più semplice possibile, cioè rispondendo all’invito dell’autore di  raccontargli tre giorni della loro vita: uno bello, uno brutto e uno così-così.

Vaccines, the government ready to change gears

[GTranslate]TORONTO – The federal government is poised to change gears on the vaccine front. The confirmation came yesterday from Justin Trudeau during a press conference in which the prime minister did not hide a cautious optimism about the latest developments in the vaccination campaign that is about to come to life in Canada. The first factor to consider – underlined by the Liberal leader – is the approval of the third vaccine in Canada, that of AstraZeneca, which has a significant acceleration in the roadmap drawn up by the government in recent months. Yesterday – added Trudeau – the first supply of the vaccine arrived in our country with about half a million doses, which will be immediately distributed to the province and territories. “In addition to this,” he continued, “we are waiting to have a response from Health Canada on another vaccine, the one produced by Johnson and Johnson.” The latter, which in the United States has been able to give the green light by the regulator, could represent the turning point in this problematic immunization campaign against Covid-19, as a difference of all the other approved vaccines in Canada – Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca – to be effective needs a single dose and does not require recall injection.

Itong katang Ito, ay siya rin nag bigay daan para labanan ang puwersa nang happon noong ikalawang digmaan pang mundo. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE Tcdsb and Minister Lecce in legal troubles

[GTranslate]TORONTO – Enough is enough! It was expected that Del Grande would fight back. An Application for Judicial Review (JR) between Michael Del Grande and the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has been filed in Divisional Court. Understandably, it took a while to materialize in its final version.

In its reading, it resembles a thin veil pulled back that reveals the governance rot beneath the surface that has been afflicting Catholic education boards and the TCDSB in particular. It also exposes the perverse – even illegal – meddling by Queen’s Park in areas arguably beyond its jurisdiction.Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>
