Berlusconi, with Ruby 2,5 million people in distress

Stories and News No. 259 " I made a phone call to help a person in distress ,” Berlusconi said about Ruby and Bunga Bunga fact. “ She told a tragic story, I tried to give her to someone in custody ". In addition, our prime minister has rejected the easy sarcasm on his last catchphrase, calling it a serious matter . Well, if yesterday I was joking, hearing these words, I do not want anymore. The Bunga Bunga is a serious matter ?! My thoughts are with the people that, at this time in Italy, as well as Ruby, live in distress. They are many. I hope for them that they have not ever voted for him or once and for all they will open their eyes… The Story: Once upon a time there was a strange land. The land was strange because the chief was strange too. Think that he said that Bunga Bunga was a serious matter. The other normal lands of the world had normal chiefs. For them serious things were others. Such as the unemployment. This does not mean that they did not Bunga Bunga. But

Berlusconi made bunga bunga with young girl: the evidences

Stories and News No. 258 Yes, also today I have my scoop. Let us start from the beginning. We may read everywhere in the media about yet another hard story with Silvio Berlusconi . The names of journalist Emilio Fede , TV agent Lele Mora and the Lombardy Regional Councillor Nicole Minetti , known for being the premier's dental hygienist , came out too. All emerged from statements made by a Moroccan underage girl named Ruby , about her alleged visits to the Silvio’s villa in Arcore. Above all, to attract the attention of the people of the web is a mysterious ritual called bunga bunga , practiced by Berlusconi and his female guests during the parties. " Silvio told me that the formula was copied by Gaddafi: a rite of his African harem… " Ruby said . From what I read there would be also some investigations and the crime is incitement to prostitution. Let us the judiciaries do their job. I write and tell stories, this is mine. Here are the evidences that fit not

Halloween vs Holyween 2010 costumes comparison

Stories and News No. 257 Today I read about an event that apparently exists since years and I confess: I did not know. It is Holyween , the Catholic answer / challenge on Halloween . The official website define it a way to save the eve of November 1 from the attacks of transgressive trends by neo-pagan and Celtic cults . It was created by the project Sentinelle del mattino (morning sentinels). I read that this is a network engaged in the Italy from 1998 to disseminate innovative experiences for young people . This is what Andrea Brugnoli , the promoter, says of Holyween: " We want to upholster the cities by the faces of beauty in front of a world inhabited by monsters, and in a night where many young people flirt with horror, we want to show the best image of our land: the faces of its saints. " Also according to Brugnoli, Halloween is " a teenagers thing, but it produces each year a huge turnover for who benefits and brings into the city much disorder and eventually

Paul the Octpus dead: powers to Deborah the female mice

Stories and News No. 256 I just learned about the death of Paul the octopus . Now, I understand that sometimes I can be cynical and I take this opportunity to apologize if sometimes I offended the feelings of someone. However, dear animalists, forgive me, but seeing all the attention the media give to Paul’s end - with all the daily human tragedies, I can not avoid to write something irreverent. Irreverent… Mine is a real journalistic scoop. Some of my sources told me that the German octopus, before exhaling his last water breath, have transferred its powers to another creature, chosen as a worthy heir of his divination. It is a female mice , long ago emigrated to Germany in search of fortune and in particular a better tomorrow. Its origins are unclear and the man who discovered it - the cleaner of the aquarium where Paul lived, has named Deborah, in memory of his grandmother recently passed away. Deborah, unlike the octopus, is not fond of football She – I like to speak of her as a l

Wikileaks Iraq documents: Italy soldier killed

Stories and News No. 255 It was inevitable that sooner or later, among the huge number of documents on the Iraq war recently published by Wikileaks , some revelation on Italy emerged. Today two news belie the Italian army and the Government releases on the facts. According to the former , at the beginning of August 2004 Italian soldiers blew an ambulance , killing four people , including a pregnant woman . That contradicts the official report, which speaks of a generic car that did not stop at the check point, also responding to the fire. However, the second news particularly affects my attention. For Julian Assange ’s website, the Italian soldier Salvatore Marracino did not shot himself because of his weapon jam. He was killed . In ' warglish ', he has been accidentally shot by friendly fire … The Story: Friendly fire, so they call me. Yes, you perfectly understood. I am not an oxymoron , as some insinuate. If so, then what about humanitarian war , preventive invasion o

Naples Rubbish Berlusconi drastic solution: money

Stories and News No. 254 When the going gets tough the tough get going , the legendary John Belushi said in Animal House. And what happen when the garbage problem in Naples has gotten out of hand , as the premier Berlusconi said? Simple, he enters the scene and solves everything. Well, perhaps this is hard also for a Silvio’s adorer. Let’s just say that he enters the scene. The Italian hero of the third millennium, after the Council of Ministers, convened a summit with exception members: the Interior Minister Roberto Maroni , the Environment Minister Prestigiacomo , the Head of Civil Protection Bertolaso , the trustful Gianni Letta , the President of Campania Region Caldoro and Economy Minister Tremonti . Silvio has already said that to end the civil war that is gripping the province of Naples he propose a drastic solution . I read that it consists of some economic incentives . Of course, when we have to pay money is not always easy to agree. Here is the more or less real chronicle

Naples rubbish clash police protest: first victims

Stories and News No. 253 The war - because this is it - between police and demonstrators near Naples, in Terzigno , is becoming more fierce. The first video I saw left me speechless. Not because I am particularly vulnerable to human violence. It always impresses me, but because I believe that in difficult times as now our country needs more than anything else collaboration among people. The opposite of what happens in many other parts of Italy too. I will not get into details of the rubbish problem in Campania. In my humble opinion, the story is so complex, with so widespread and cross-cutting accountabilities; it can not be faced with a single post. However, stopping my attention to the actual issue - the placement of trash landfills near wonders of nature as the Vesuvius National Park is, I could not resist to take a look at what might be at risk. Of course, the garbage problem mainly concerns people’s health more than natural beauties, but I believe that zooming my blog on a spa
