Sapevi che esiste un modo per invecchiare in maniera longeva e rimanere in ottima salute? Ci sono innumerevoli studi scientifici che evidenziano come un certo stile di vita favorisca una sopravvivenza non solo più lunga, ma soprattutto più sana. In questo libro ti svelerò che non serve essere ricche di denaro per essere eterne ragazze: occorre essere ricche di fantasia, di disciplina, di sani principi e di curiosità. E naturalmente avere le giuste informazioni: quelle contenute in questo prezioso libro. Verso La Longevità COME ESSERE SEMPRE GIOVANI Perché il tuo stile di vita è il principale responsabile della tua speranza di vita ma soprattutto della tua speranza di salute. Perché l’età matura è l’occasione per affinare la propria personalità, per diventare davvero speciali. Il segreto per associare uno stile di vita favorevole ad una felice longevità. COME ESSERE ETERNE RAGAZZE IN SALUTE Come essere un’eterna ragazza lavorando sul controllo del tuo peso corporeo. Perché mangiare poco, persino meno di quello che si ritiene necessario, è utile per vivere una vita longeva. Perché per una buona longevità non basta la diagnosi precoce ma è opportuno concentrarsi anche sulla prevenzione primaria. COME ESSERE ETERNE RAGAZZE IN BELLEZZA Perché è opportuno che ogni donna individui i suoi punti deboli, per minimizzarli, e i suoi punti di forza, per valorizzarli. Come badare alla salute della tua chioma, non solo dall’esterno, ma anche dall’interno, con cibo adeguato e integratori. Perché le parole chiave per la bellezza della tua pelle sono: riposo, relax, buonumore, cibo sano, intestino funzionante e protezione. COME ESSERE ETERNE RAGAZZE ANCHE MENTALMENTE Perché è fondamentale imparare sia a liberare il proprio tempo sia a non perderlo. Come seguire l’arte nelle sue varie forme per affinare il senso estetico e dare struttura all’emotività. Perché viaggiare è un’esperienza di scoperta e perché anche i viaggi brevi e a poca distanza hanno un’importante funzione anti-età. COME VIVERE SERENAMENTE LA PROPRIA INDIPENDENZA Perché esistono due tipi di solitudini: una “solitudine felice”, frutto di una libera scelta estemporanea, e una “solitudine infelice”, dovuta alla mancanza di vere relazioni. Il segreto per trovare amicizie di valore. Perché prendendoti il giusto tempo per coltivare le tue relazioni sarai in grado di comunicare agli altri la tua serenità.

Il nostro Partito Politico Futurista è nato naturalmente dalla grande corrente spirituale del movimento artistico futurista.Unico nella storia il nostro Partito è stato concepito, voluto e attuato da un gruppo di artisti poeti, pittori, musicisti, ecc.: che, carichi di genio e di coraggio ormai provati, dopo avere svecchiato brutalmente e modernizzato l'arte italiana sono giunti logicamente ad una concezione di politica assolutamente sgombra di retorica, violentemente italiana e violentemente rivoluzionaria, libera, dinamica e armata di metodi assolutamente pratici.Poichè un passato illustre schiacciava l'Italia e un avvenire infinitamente glorioso ribolliva nel suo seno, appunto in Italia, sotto il nostro cielo troppo voluttuoso, l'energia futurista doveva nascere, dieci anni fa, organizzarsi, canalizzarsi, trovare in noi i suoi motori, i suoi apparecchi di illuminazione e di propagazione. L'Italia, più di qualunque altro paese, aveva un bisogno urgente di futurismo, poichè moriva di passatismo. L'ammalato inventò il proprio rimedio. Noi siamo i suoi medici occasionali. Il rimedio vale per gli ammalati di ogni paese.
Chiara Corbella Petrillo
Author: Simone Troisi, Christian Paccini
Publisher: Sophia Institute Press
Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, “my yoke is sweet and my burden is light,” he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?” A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.” At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her “a saint for our times.” Chiara entrusted her first baby to the blessed Virgin, but felt as though this child was not hers to keep. Soon, it was revealed her daughter had life-threatening abnormalities. Despite universal pressure to abort, Chiara gave birth to a beautiful girl who died within the hour. A year later, the death of her second child came even more quickly. Yet God was preparing their hearts for more—more sorrow and more grace. While pregnant a third time, Chiara developed a malignant tumor. She refused to jeopardize the life of her unborn son by undergoing treatments during the pregnancy. Chiara waited until after Francesco was safely born, and then began the most intense treatments of radiation and chemotherapy, but it was soon clear that the cancer was terminal. Almost immediately after giving birth to Francesco, Chiara’s tumor became terminal and caused her to lose the use of her right eye. Her body was tested, and so was her soul as she suffered through terrible dark nights. She said “yes” to everything God sent her way, becoming a true child of God. And as her days on earth came to an end, Enrico looked down on his wife and said, “If she is going to be with Someone who loves her more than I, why should I be upset?” Each saint has a special charisma, a particular facet of God that is reflected through her. Chiara’s was to be a witness to joy in the face of great adversity, the kind which makes love overflow despite the sorrow from loss and death.

Challenge Social Innovation
Author: Hans-Werner Franz, Josef Hochgerner, Jürgen Howaldt
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
In recent years, social innovation has experienced a steep career. Numerous national governments and large organisations like the OECD, the European Commission and UNESCO have adopted the term. Social innovation basically means that people adopt new social practices in order to meet social needs in a different or more effective way. Prominent examples of the past are the Red Cross and the social welfare state or, at present, the internet 2.0 transforming our communication and cooperation schemes, requiring new management concepts, even empowering social revolutions. The traditional concept of innovation as successful new technological products needs fundamental rethinking in a society marked by knowledge and services, leading to a new and enriched paradigm of innovation. There is multiple evidence that social innovation will become of growing importance not only concerning social integration, equal opportunities and dealing with the greenhouse effects but also with regard to preserving and expanding the innovative capacity of companies and societies. While political authorities stress the social facets of social innovation, this book also encompasses its societal and systemic dimensions, collecting the scientific expertise of renowned experts and scholars from all over the world. Based on the contributions of the first world-wide science convention on social innovation from September 2011 in Vienna, the book provides an overview of scientific approaches to this still relatively new field. Forewords by Agnès HUBERT (Member of the Bureau of European Policy Advisers (BEPA) of the European Commission) and Antonella Noya (Senior Policy Analyst at OECD, manager of the OECD LEED Forum on Social Innovations)

Ultrasound guidance of liver surgery is a very sophisticated approach that permits the performance of otherwise unfeasible operations, discloses the true extent of tumors, increases the indications for hepatectomy, and renders surgery safer. Despite this, it has remained relatively neglected in the literature over the past two decades, during which time much progress has been achieved. This is the first atlas on the subject, and it is comprehensive in scope. The state of the art in the use of ultrasound for resection guidance is carefully documented, and new techniques for exploration of the biliary tract and facilitation of transplant surgery are presented. Further important topics include the role of ultrasound in laparoscopic approaches, the use of contrast agents for diagnosis and staging, and developments in the planning of surgical strategy. The editor is a leading authority whose group has been responsible for a variety of advances in the field. He has brought together other experts whose aim throughout is to provide clear information and guidance on the optimal use of ultrasound when performing liver surgery. This atlas is intended especially for hepatobiliary surgeons but will also be of considerable value for general surgeons.
One for the Books
Author: Joe Queenan
One of America’s leading humorists and author of the bestseller Closing Time examines his own obsession with books Joe Queenan became a voracious reader as a means of escape from a joyless childhood in a Philadelphia housing project. In the years since then he has dedicated himself to an assortment of idiosyncratic reading challenges: spending a year reading only short books, spending a year reading books he always suspected he would hate, spending a year reading books he picked with his eyes closed. In One for the Books, Queenan tries to come to terms with his own eccentric reading style—how many more books will he have time to read in his lifetime? Why does he refuse to read books hailed by reviewers as “astonishing”? Why does he refuse to lend out books? Will he ever buy an e-book? Why does he habitually read thirty to forty books simultaneously? Why are there so many people to whom the above questions do not even matter—and what do they read? Acerbically funny yet passionate and oddly affectionate, One for the Books is a reading experience that true book lovers will find unforgettable.
