Je n'en vois que trois vu que le vendredi l'etape sera de transition vers Bergerac. Ca fait donc mardi, mercredi et jeudi dans les Pyrennees. Yoshi45 wednesday 25 September at Par contre je ne suis pas d'accord pr l'ADH , Sastre y construit sa victoire. Dans ce cas nous sommes d'accord, meme si perso j'estime qu'un depart a Maubourguet pour une etape plate n'est pas une etape "des Pyrennees".
En ca fera un bel anniversaire, surement en fin de Tour. Thevenet est un grand champion, et vu sa sante probleme cardiaque lors du dernier Dauphine il ne sera peut etre plus la en Je sais que certains detestent celebrer les anniversaires, mais ce serait malgre tout une belle opportunite. Supposer un double-passage sur cette phrase me parait trop avancer. Tout ce que je retiens c'est qu'il sera au programme.

Linkinito saturday 28 September at Que proposes tu? Vinnie sunday 29 September at Est-ce que c'est possible?
C'est une erreur de croire cela. Car, bien au contraire, c'est exactement l'inverse qui risque de s'y produire. Ce n'est pas parce-que "3 cols H. Je vais me permettre un hors-sujet. Mais bon Tout ca me dit que ce sera comme en Histoire que je n'ai pas honte de voir ce genre de commentaire vaseux de cyclix. Ca fait peut etre beaucoup avec un repos du Tour, nan? Est-ce toujours le cas? Ce n'est qu'un avis perso.
Svam monday 30 September at Besancon toujours dans le coup? C'est peut etre une rumeur. Mais c'est surtout des paroles dites par un restaurateur, au mois de mai , et ces paroles elles ne s'inventent pas!!! Thomas Vergouwen monday 30 September at Eddy tuesday 01 October at En effet, Luchon-Pla d'Adet est tout aussi plausible. Svam tuesday 01 October at Dom wednesday 02 October at Totalement d'accord, mettre un repos le dernier jeudi me semble irrealiste.
Ca n'aurait aucun sens. Yoshi45 wednesday 02 October at L'article que j'attendais. Ce serait super pour notre site!!

On peut rajouter Val Louron-Azet si tu veux. J'ai souri sans regret. Jedad friday 04 October at Je passe sur l'argument "Poulidor 74" dont tout le monde a compris la valeur que je lui associe. Svam friday 04 October at Bruno friday 04 October at Supputations toujours pareil! C'est mince! Daron44 friday 04 October at Olivier73 friday 04 October at A ce momment la, je te donnerais la preuve par renvoie de mails sur ta boite, que l'EDT arrive au Pla d'Adet le 13 Juillet.
Faisable au plan logistic? Ce serait absolument grandiose! C'est un fouillis sans nom tous ces commentaires. C'est dommage. Oui c'est vrai, sauf en qui fait un peu figure d'exception. Depuis quand la distance fait-elle l'EDT? Palois64 friday 04 October at Mais Hautacam est trop loin du Tourmalet dans ce sens.
Ce serait du jamais vu de voir EdT cyclo aussi dure!! Il faut donc oublier le Tourmalet. Exemple: le retour de la rumeur PSM. Svam saturday 05 October at Un grand moment.
Attentat du Décembre | Fusillade à Strasbourg: les témoignages
Concernant La Pierre et les cols basques pour moi le secteur le plus dur de l'hexagone , ben on se dirige toujours vers le boycott, apparemment. Pour eux, il faut un maximum de monde. Vince saturday 05 October at Svam A partir d'une info qui est plausible Pau-Hautacam , on a bien le droit de fantasmer sur un parcours.
Ce serait aussi l'Etape du Tour. Faites vos jeux! Vinnie sunday 06 October at Vinnie post Martin L. Or si on passe par l'Aubisque et le Tourmalet seulement cela correspond. Vince sunday 06 October at Vince : c'est ce qu'on appelle du HS! Thomas Vergouwen monday 07 October at Svam monday 07 October at Bonjour Svam.
Je comprends que les organisateurs recherchent suspense et spectacle. Un peu moins vrai pour le Tour ! Ce n'est pas seulement un grimpeur. Badouwig monday 07 October at Mais je n'enterre pas le potentiel de Tourmalet-Hautacam. Pour Spandelles, je maintiens que ce n'est pas une lubie. Re Bonjour Svam. Mais des grands grimpeurs, on en trouve de moins en moins. Le seul vrai grimpeur, dans le peloton actuel, c'est Nairo Quintana. Il y a t il des "fuites" qui officialiseraient l'une ou l'autre?
Vinnie monday 07 October at Stochastic monday 07 October at Parler de tous les grands grimpeurs de l'histoire peut nous permettre de disserter des jours entiers. Moi perso c'est Ocana qui m'a fait aimer le cyclisme. Et pourtant!! Loin devant Gaul. C'est le meilleur grimpeur actuel.

Ni Pinot, ni Fin du Hors Sujet. Je n'ai pas le temps de disserter plus. Thomas - c etait juste pour faire passer le message que ces dernieres annees, le parcours du Giro est plus croustillant que celui du Tour Vince monday 07 October at Je mettrai un seul message sur le Giro pour eviter tropd e HS.
Le Giro est plus croustillant que le Tour a cause de la geographie du pays. En dehors du bord de mer et de la plaine du Po, les zones plates sont rares, il est possible de trouver une arrivee en cote de deuxieme voire de premiere categorie en mettant un depart d'etape quasiment n'importe ou sur le Territoire Italien. Par ailleurs le Giro n'a pas, contrairement a la France ou l'Espagne, une arrivee fixe.
Ca aide pour programmer 3 jours difficiles a la veille de l'arrivee.

Enfin, les organisateurs n'hesitent pas a faire regulierement appel a des routes de terre, comme les Strades Blanches, alors qu'en France ca reste une exception. Pour en revenir au Tour, et aux Pyrennees, on peut assez clairement s'orienter vers un schema ASO typique de ces dernieres annees, a savoir une grosse etape longue d'enchainement de cols km environ et le lendemain, km vers Hautacam avec vraisemblablement une seule difficulte, voire deux avant la montee finale.
J'aurai beaucoup aime une etape identique a celle remportee par Armstrong en Ca ferait un beau parcours propice a des attaques, si la Sky ne verouille pas la course. Yoshi45 monday 07 October at Chiffre hors normes pour le Tour. Je continu de penser que l'une des cinq va sauter On parie? Je dis que Armstrong a remporte l'etape ce jour la, car il a ecoeure la concurrence le titre de l'Equipe: Il les a eparpilles. Ma formulation etait mauvaise, mais il y a eu deux vainqueurs ce jour la en haut de Hautacam, et hormis le groupe Virenque-Jimenez qui a limite la casse, que des perdants.
Je reve de ce schema avec la derniere etape de montagne plus longue et la veille la course plus courte et nerveuse, avec des favoris qui se regardent et des outsiders qui tentent. Ils vont devoir s'adapter aux autres et ne pas se reposer sur leurs formules trop classiques. Linkinito tuesday 08 October at Mrmoving wednesday 09 October at Au sujet du classement des Cols par ASO. C'est au bon vouloir d'ASO en fonction de la course et de l'implantation du col dans la parcours. Pourquoi le Puy de Dome HC en et redevint en ? Au final, ce parcours, je le trouve chouette. Je ne pense pas.
Pour le Tour , qui sera capable de rivaliser avec Froome?? Je ne vois qu'un homme: Nairo Quintana. Le probleme de Quintana l'an prochain ce sera aussi la possible etape pavee, on sait tous que les colombiens et les equipes espagnoles sont franchement mauvais sur ce type de trace. Un gabarit de puce comme Quintana sur des paves va etre ballote de partout.
Il peut perdre le Tour ce jour la, et il n'a en theorie aucun equipier flandrien pour l'emmener au cas ou. C'est la meme problematique qui se degage d'ailleurs pour nos petits Francais qui ne savent pas se placer et qui, a part Chavanel aui ne joue pa sle general, n'y arriveront surement pas. Pour le reste, oui, ce Tour a le profil pour sourire a Quintana. Surtout que come il y a un long CLM avant Paris ca obligera les grimpeurs a se bouger car Froome va encore leur reprendre 3 a 5 minutes dans le Perigord.
Yoshi45 wednesday 09 October at Thomas Vergouwen thursday 10 October at Bonjour Linkinito , bonjour Nailouj Je suis globalement d'accord avec vous. Ce sont des "palliers". Evidemment, il y aura toujours des "points de ruptures subjectifs". Un indiscutable HC que je proposerais soit en unique course de cote sinon en enchainement de Laffrey. Flo thursday 10 October at Vincent thursday 10 October at Tiens, Vosges-Matin parle du Donon.

Pourquoi pas un Champ du Feu alors? Et le lendemain, avant le Platzer qui est garanti, qu'ils aillent s'essouffler sur les rampes du Petit-Ballon. Certes la machine qu'est le Tour de France rentabilise mieux que l'Enfer du Nord. Quid de Grenoble? Le chrono collectif aux oubliettes, un exercice en cote Planche des Belles Filles ou Chamrousse est-il possible? Idem pour Froomey d'ailleurs Avec les informations de Thomas il va falloir inclure un autre contre-la-montre individuel sur ce Tour Mrmoving thursday 10 October at Je pense en effet qu'un autre chrono se cache qqpart, mais ou?
Passatempi nella giungla. Ediz. illustrata
Pour les paves, j'ai du mal a imaginer la tranchee d'Aremberg sur le parcours, ce serait un fantasme total, meme si juste avant l'arrivee cela ferait de tres gros ecarts. Malgre tout n'oubliez pas que Paris-Roubaix la prend dans l'autre sens, sens ou elle monte legerement si je ne m'abuse, ce qui la rend encore plus difficile. Bref, ne revons pas pour le moment. Froome aura peut etre aussi un peu de mal vu son poids plume meme si c'est un gros rouleur. Le plus content a l'heure actuelle ca doit etre Cancellara qui est parti pour augmenter son total de jours en jaune sur le Tour.
Yoshi45 thursday 10 October at On pourrait n'avoir qu'un seul CLM dans ce Tour, mais ce serait un fait rarissime, bien que le dernier CLM soit assez long 55 km au bas mot. Linkinito thursday 10 October at St Etienne - Chamrousse c'est kms avec beaucoup d'autoroute. A suivre, Cordialement. D'accord avec mon voisin du dessus. Par ailleurs en moyenne on a un chrono en cote sur le Tour tous les combiens? Donc on serait dans les normes. Et ca compenserait la frayeur des paves pour les purs grimpeurs.
Yoshi45 friday 11 October at FJ62 friday 11 October at Vincent friday 11 October at Quelque chose pour un petit groupe de favourtites avec des types Gilbert. Dans chrono en montagne, il ne faut pas retenir chrono mais montagne! Si on supprime le second, on devrait donc "compenser" avec un chrono individuel court km mais j'ai pas l'impression qu'il y ait la place dans le parcours. Sur la valeur de Quintana, je suis donc moins pessimiste que vous.
Svam friday 11 October at Vinnie friday 11 October at De la pure cote genre Zoncolan, c'est exactement comme une course en ligne. Perso, je me pose de plus en plus de questions sur le depart de l etape 13 arrivant a Chamrousse. Du coup, je peux me tromper mais je verrai bien tjrs une boucle autour de Grenoble en utilisant les cols de Chartreuse et les balcons de Belledonne en reference au Dauphine Ce n est que pur supposition mais ca ne me semble pas impossible.
Marion friday 11 October at En , il fait un bon classement parce qu'il a cancellara qui lui ouvre la route. Le petit colombien, il a de la viande sur les os!! Rui Costa l'a bien compris Cronoscalata : le dernier date de quand? Mais il a du faire 6 au mieux en 8 participations au Tour.
Denis71 friday 11 October at Si j'en oublie, dites-le moi! Linkinito friday 11 October at Tony friday 11 October at Quintana veut gagner le tour en c'est lui qui le dit. Froome progresser? Mais des deux, c'est clairement Quintana qui a la plus grosse marge de progression.
En tout cas pour un pur grimpeur. En tout cas, penser que Valverde peut faire un podium sur le Tour, c'est pour moi la plus grosse utopie de la discussion. N'oubliez pas que en ce moment beaucoup de personne viennent se renseigner sur le parcours donc il faut qu'il y est de la pertinence dans vos commentaires aussi. Sinon, pour revenir au parcours, je suis pris d'un gros doute. Hinault remporta son premier Tour en sur un parcours comprenant km de clm. C'est clairement un col HC! Du coup, je pense que c'est facile d'atblir un rythme pour un rouleur.
Vincent saturday 12 October at Alors, ce parcours, favorable aux grimpeurs, aux rouleurs-grimpeurs?? Pour moi, clairement favorable aux grimpeurs. Concernant les grimpeurs, l'argument principal qui les avantage tient dans la position du clm de plat. Il est grimpeur, le tour est pour lui, Vinnie saturday 12 October at Il vaut mieux se fier au profil. J'en ai vu certains discuter du classement HC de Chamrousse. Je pense que le Glandon doit surtout son HC parce que "c'est le Glandon". Certes, la longueur et la raideur moyenne sont les deux principaux indicateurs mis en avant par ASO.
Linkinito sunday 13 October at Je rappelle ici un de mes post au sujet du classement des Cols par ASO. Pourquoi le Puy de Dome HC en et redevint 1 en ? Mes souvenirs et archives peuvent toutefois me tromper. Ref sunday 13 October at Donc on peut dire entre 4 et 6. Assez logique somme toute. Berdollt Jeff sunday 13 October at Ils vont faire un chrono de 70 bornes ou quoi?
Vincent sunday 13 October at Un Froome ne pourra pas profiter d'1 chrono de mi-Tour pour envoyer l'opposition dans les cordes. Aurelien : Je passe sur l'attaque personnelle en constatant qu'on est pas d'accord et que je te pense dans l'erreur. Et la somme Svam sunday 13 October at Pierre: j'ai vu aussi l'article.

Mauvais exemple. Vinnie monday 14 October at Le grand bluff? Guillaume monday 14 October at Linkinito monday 14 October at Je me demande quelle route ils vont prendre de Maubourguet?

Un depart de St etienne pour aller a Chamrousse me semblerait etre une etape sportivement peu interessante Marion monday 14 October at Pau up to Hautacam would be fantastic.. Looking forward to the ASO announcing the route so I can start building my trip.. Have to figure out the best way to get from Barcelona to Pau though!

Je pense que l'historique et le serieux sont la, mais a 4 ou 5 jours de l'annonce du TDF, les vraies "hypotheses" sont la, et verifiees pour beaucoup d'apres ce que j'en sais :- Reste qu'il peut y avoir quelques doutes possibles eventuellement sur une arrivee a St Etienne et le lieu de depart du lendemain. Aussi a la rigueur le depart du lendemain de l'arrivee a Luchon, mais pour etre honnete Il y a qques reservations en Espagne.
Bon, enfin bref; disons que c'est un depart de Luchon avec un Joker pour Saint Gaudens. Grand Depart a Utrecht? Thomas Vergouwen saturday 19 October at Je vous le dis, le depart du 18 va etre ds les environs de Grenoble pour traverser la Chartreuse et revenir par les balcons de Belledonne Et a la surprise general ca risque d etre l edt Marion saturday 19 October at Linkinito saturday 19 October at Thomas tu vas devoir rester sur Saint-Etienne je crois Surtout que la route direct c'est environ km.
Linkinito, en effet, j'ai dit du n'importe quoi.. Pourquoi alors ce crochet Un clm en cote?
A priori tout le monde dit que non Donc une etape passant par la Chartreuse ca fait longtemps et les cols inedits de Belledonne ne parait pas impossible. Marion- est-ce que votre info parle de la date de l'EDT autour de Grenoble? Simon saturday 19 October at Thomas Il y a alors Saint-Galmier. Il y aussi Saint-Chamond ou Andrezieux grosses villes. Mathias saturday 19 October at Tout est complet sur saint etienne et aux alentours Kevin C.
Yoann sunday 20 October at NMD sunday 20 October at Risoul c est dans les Hautes Alpes Sachant que le depart est de Grenoble et qu ils passeront a Bourg d Oisans cf page fb ASO , ca ne peut pas etre le cas.

Oui, bravo thomas pour cette info in extremis. Si si Thomas je l'avais vu mais je n'ai pas le temps de poster pendant mes heures de service.
Un mot sur St Gaudens. Ce n'est que mon avis personnel Je ne charge personne loin de la! Linkinito tuesday 22 October at NYP tuesday 22 October at Mais avec ASO, pas de Parpaillon, alors Sur ce, bon boulot.

Si un gars comme Linkinito le dit, vous pouvez le croire, c'est un vrai connaisseur. Et pourtant. Sur du PLAT. Mais qu'on se le dise : ce sont les coureurs qui font la course. Tu n'aimes pas les Tours qu'ASO propose? Malheureusement tu ne peux pas y faire grand chose. Il peut tout s'y passer. Si tu veux agir pour des meilleurs parcours, vas-y. A bon entendeur. C'est assez fou de ce qu'on peut trouver et comparer avec Google.

Soulor et Spandelles Svam? Aber zuerst will ich, dass der Staat den ersten Schritt macht. Danach leiste ich gerne meinen Beitrag. Die Welt: Viele italienische Firmen hat die Krise stark zugesetzt. Wie beurteilen Sie die wirtschaftliche Lage? Sie sind internationaler geworden, auch kulturell. Wissen Sie, was die wichtigsten Auslieferungen Italiens nach Japan sind? Man muss das Land nur von alten Verkrustungen befreien. Das ist wie mit einer Flasche Champagner. Du ziehst den Korken — und dann "Boom"!
Montezemolo: Die Beziehungen sind fundamental wichtig. Ich mache da nicht mit. Die Welt: Sehen wir Sie irgendwann selbst in der Politik? Ich habe ein weites Netz an internationalen Beziehungen. Mir kommen sofort viele Ideen. Ich habe also schon viel zu tun. Die Welt: Ihr politisches Engagement erhalten Sie aber aufrecht? Montezemolo: Ich bin 65 Jahre alt. Ein Problem der Italiener ist, dass viele kritisieren, aber viele nichts wirklich anpacken. Selbst geht aber keiner auf den Platz. Schluss damit, nur noch zu kritisieren.
Alle Rechte vorbehalten. Milanese opera house revokes free pass for journalist Paolo Isotta after reviews 'used as weapons against artists'. Lizzy Davies in Rome. One of Italy 's veteran music critics has been blacklisted by La Scala after a series of reviews which the Milanese opera house has said "overstepped the limits" of journalistic propriety. In a high-profile spat carried out on the pages of Corriere della Sera, the country's best-selling daily newspaper, the acidic and occasionally offensive reviews of Paolo Isotta have led the paper's editor-in-chief, Ferruccio de Bortoli, to accuse the opera house of "wanting the head" of his top critic.
The journalist will no longer be entitled to take up his customary free press tickets at future performances, he said. Over a number of years, Isotta's reviews have been peppered with the kind of unfavourable descriptions unlikely to endear him to musicians, conductors or singers. He branded Luciano Pavarotti a "musical illiterate" and once began a review of the opera Prometheus with the ominous words: "Ladies and gentlemen, the music is over. Isotta wrote that Harding had made Wagner sound "homosexual" and also attacked his Falstaff, a co-production with the Royal Opera House.
Isotta has refused to respond to Lissner's assessment of his work, apart from saying it contained "innumerable defamatory remarks". Silvio Berlusconi has been accused by opponents of spouting "dangerous electoral propaganda" after he vowed to ease the tax burden on austerity-stricken Italians if his rightwing coalition wins elections this month. With only three weeks to go before the country goes to the polls, the threetime prime minister is gaining ground on centre-left frontrunners in what he described on Sunday as his "last great electoral and political battle".
One opinion poll released on Friday had his grouping within five points of the Democratic party-led coalition. In a speech aimed at winning over the large number of undecided voters, the billionaire media mogul cast himself once again as a friend of the people who would break with the agenda of the technocrat prime minister, Mario Monti.
Known as the IMU, the tax on first homes has been highly unpopular ever since Monti imposed it in Berlusconi has already abolished it once, upon returning to power in The year-old, who has said he will be finance minister rather than prime minister if his alliance pulls off an unlikely triumph, also said a rightwing government would abolish, over the course of five years, a regional tax on business. He promised not to increase VAT and said that, "above all", there would be no "wealth tax" on high earners.
The speech was met with a standing ovation from party chiefs and supporters but with stinging criticism from Berlusconi's opponents who accused him of irresponsible electoral trickery that Italy 's stagnant and struggling economy cannot afford. The country — in recession for the fourth time since — has the second highest public debt-to-gross domestic product ratio in the eurozone, behind Greece.
Unemployment has risen from 8. Monti, whose eclectic group of centrist parties is lagging behind in the polls, said: "Berlusconi governed for so many years and kept none of his promises. Moreover, he created many problems, so much so that he to leave [office] … Italians have good memories. Rosy Bindi, of the Democratic party, denounced the speech as "dangerous electoral propaganda", while Pier Ferdinando Casini, head of the Union of Christian Democrats UDC and a former Berlusconi ally, said the former premier was "a great salesman [who] would be capable of selling anyone a car without a motor".
But the man himself was defiant. Berlusconi was forced to stand down as prime minister at the end of by a combination of personal scandal and economic crisis, and his Freedom People PDL party supported Monti's government until December, approving nearly all the technocrats' austerity measures. But Berlusconi now added that, instead of reviving the Italian economy, tax rises and other measures had merely served to cause unemployment to increase and consumption to fall. He claimed he would cover the revenue lost by the refund with other measures including a reduction of state funding to political parties and a tax, to be agreed with Switzerland, on financial activities by Italian citizens in the neighbouring country.
A SkyTGTecne opinion poll published at the end of last week put Berlusconi's rightwing coalition on The same poll had Monti's centrists on Ian Birrell. Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio might have been a repellent human being, but he's perfect for a page-turning biography. When Liane de Pougy, one of the most celebrated Parisian courtesans, visited Florence, a famous admirer sent a carriage filled with roses to collect her. As she descended the steps, his servants threw more roses at her. This was none other than Gabriele D'Annunzio, the poet and lothario who seduced Italy to wartime slaughter with his rhetoric, scandalised Europe with his writing and set up his own city state in a forerunner of fascism.
In this exhaustive biography , Lucy Hughes-Hallett attempts to peel away the many layers of an astonishing Italian egotist who still divides opinion over his politics, poetry and prose. He was, without doubt, a revolting man, whose rampant vanity and sexual desires knew no bounds. Although he bedded scores of Europe's most beautiful women, his treatment of them was contemptuous; indeed, there are suggestions from his writing he liked the idea of raping working-class women. His housekeeper was expected to have sex with him three times a day.
Then there was his bloodlust as he sought Italian participation in the first world war, with fiery nationalist speeches and sub-Nietzschean fantasies, arguing a race only won respect by spilling the blood of its young.
Even his biographer admits she is repelled by him. Once at war, he orders soldiers to shoot some captive countrymen whom he called "sinners against the fatherland". Little wonder he captivated Mussolini. Yet he was brave in battle, a passionate protector of his men, a pioneering aviator. Above all, he was a prodigious writer whose collected works ran to 48 volumes. Puccini wanted to work with him, Proust admired him and Joyce said he was one of the three most talented writers of the 19th century, alongside Kipling and Tolstoy.
His flowery and explicit writing had flair, even if he was not, as he claimed, the greatest Italian writer since Dante. But then, even his children had to call him maestro. It all makes a splendid subject for a biography, although since he wrote constantly in his notebooks, there is a surfeit of material and at times this biography sags slightly as it tries to make sense of such a well-recorded life. There were rumours he removed his ribs to perform fellatio on himself; he claimed to have eaten the meat of children; there is drug use towards the end of his life as his health deteriorates.
Some stories were false, of course, made up by D'Annunzio or reporters soaking up his life for their papers. Here lies the key to this horrifically fascinating subject. For he was not just the prototype fascist who paved the way for Mussolini, but a pioneer of modern celebrity culture. He understood the fantastic soft power of fame. So while still a teenager, he published a volume of poetry, then informed a newspaper editor the young writer was dead, ensuring national publicity. When the Mona Lisa was stolen, he claimed it was brought to his house.
After he sat on a plane at an air show, mechanics auctioned the seat to fans. His greatest work of art was the construct of Gabriele D'Annunzio. He was undeniably brilliant — at the age of 16, he wrote to his parents in six languages. The tragedy was that he put this genius to such nefarious ends, fanning the flames of war, nationalism and blood-stained division that culminated in such tragedy for his country and continent. Hughes-Hallett dances her way through this extraordinary life in a style that is playful, punchy and generally pleasing.
She eschews chronology in places for a chopped-up style of vignettes that works surprisingly well as she seeks to separate the man from his myths. Mostly, she allows the poet to hang himself. And she shows the links between him and Mussolini are more blurred then suspected, with D'Annunzio constantly wary of the emerging fascist leader. Indeed, he seems bored by politics, with few fixed convictions beyond his own importance and a crude sense of Italian greatness, while Mussolini watches and learns from the master of self-promotion.
The best bit of the book is the description of the anarchic events at Fiume in , when black-shirted nationalists seized the Adriatic port for Italy. For more than a year, D'Annunzio is duce of it as it descends into darkness and racist divisions, a portent for scenes soon to engulf Europe. Meanwhile, he changes the flowers round his bed three times a day.
He ends his life promoted to general and living in Lake Garda, turning his home into a temple to himself. Mussolini, realising the potency of the poet's appeal in Italy, smothers him with luxury, sending him ever more outrageous gifts for his garden, culminating in a plane and the prow of a battleship. After his death in , his girlfriend turns out to have been a Nazi agent; there are rumours she killed him with a drug overdose. In death, as in life, the amazing story of D'Annunzio was painted in primary colours, but with the darkest of shadows.

He wants to complete the Great Society project of such progressive forefathers as both Roosevelts and Lyndon Johnson, and make it sustainable in an America that faces unprecedented global competition. How he plans to do that, when he must share power with fiercely hostile Republicans in Congress for the foreseeable future, is a more interesting question.
Mr Obama's inaugural speech, delivered this morning beneath a bright, chilly Washington sky, offered a remarkably stark answer. He plans to confront Republicans, co-opt their most cherished beliefs about American exceptionalism and individualism, pin them into a corner with the power of public opinion and—in the longer-term—to marginalise them by building his party a progressive coalition from such diverse groups as women, ethnic minorities, gays, the young, immigrants and environmentalists.
Though the speech rang with references to national unity, the founding fathers and the ties that bind Americans, it was a deeply partisan piece of work. In his second term, Mr Obama's big tent will be held up by Democratic ropes and stays. Those who insist on remaining outside, it was easy to conclude, risk feeling very cold indeed.
The power of public opinion is palpable at an inauguration ceremony, a strange and handsome hybrid of coronation and political rally. Your blogger was lucky to snaffle a seat in a sort of no-man's land on the Capitol's west front, between the serried rows of congressional spouses and the Marine Corps band, at the foot of the presidential podium. In the lull before the president's arrival, grandees of the Senate displayed themselves at a balustrade next to his still-empty lectern. They showed off silly hats several wore stetsons, one wore a beret, and Senator Bill Nelson of Florida came in a bright orange hunting-cap bearing his name.
They waved to friends, family and constituents, and generally acted like politicians seeking the love of a crowd. Then came Mr Obama, and the atmosphere gained a wholly new charge. The crowd gathered far below the Capitol may have been smaller than four years ago, but it still stretched almost to the Washington Monument and it was filled with true believers. The sight of the president on giant screens down the National Mall sent up a roar from the crowd that made hair stand on end. Mr Obama took that applause, and sought to harness it.
Inauguration speeches are often hailed as moments to reach across partisan divides, and make peace after the bruising fights of the election just ended. Time and again, Mr Obama seemed to be re-fighting that election. At the very start of his inaugural address, he offered a definition of what it means to be American: an allegiance to the idea of equal creation and unalienable rights articulated in the opening lines of Jefferson's Declaration of Independence.
It was hard not to hear a direct challenge to the argument set out by Mitt Romney, his vanquished Republican foe, and the Republicans' vice-presidential running-mate, Paul Ryan. It was Mr Ryan who, on the day that he joined the presidential ticket, galvanised American conservatives with his declaration that America was unique in being a country "founded on an idea", namely that:. Our rights come from nature and God, not government.
We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.

- Why the concept of Gaullo-Mitterrandism is still relevant!
This idea is founded on the principles of liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination and government by consent of the governed. Six months later, in the first moments of his second term, Mr Obama took on that small-government credo. Jeffersonian truths may be self-evident but "they've never been self-executing", Mr Obama said, with something approaching audible scorn. The president bowed to core conservative beliefs about American exceptionalism, conceding that he governs a people sceptical of central authority, disdainful of the "fiction" that society's ills can be cured by government alone, and unusually insistent that it is an American's duty to seek success through hard work, personal responsibility and a dose of risk-taking.
He is right. That belief in meritocracy and enterprise sets America apart from other rich nations, notably on the continent of Europe, where people are much likelier to ascribe success to good luck or connections, and to believe that the state should intervene to ensure no citizens fall too far behind the most fortunate. But if Mr Obama is not the European socialist of his enemies' gibes, he is something closer to a European liberal, setting out a vision of a state safety net whose job is to protect responsible, hard-working citizens from the strokes of ill luck that can strike at any time Mr Obama cited job losses, sudden illnesses, or the sweeping away of a home in a terrible storm.
At that moment, the president argued, commitments made by Americans to each other, through such Great Society programmes as Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, do not sap initiative but strengthen it.
In his pointed words:. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great. He went on to list some concrete consequences that flow from his vision of a communal action as an enabler of American individualism. In a canter through big agenda items for his second term, that will be spelled out in more detail in his February state-of-the-union address, Mr Obama talked of action on climate change chiding those who "still deny the overwhelming judgment of science" on global warming and action to make America a leader in sustainable energy production.
He committed himself to seeking diplomatic solutions to security crises, and ran through a veritable to-do list of Democratic ambitions, from equal pay for women to gay equality, comprehensive immigration reform and through a coy reference to Newtown in Connecticut to action on gun violence. It was not necessary to settle centuries-long debates on the role of government, but political leaders did have to take decisions without delay, reaching imperfect and impartial agreements if needs be.
Few can have mistaken his meaning. Beneath the ringing oratory about America's journey and the work of generations, Mr Obama was directly challenging the core beliefs of today's Republican Party. From the backhand slap for climate-change deniers, to the rebuke of "absolutism", Mr Obama was attacking congressional Republicans, notably in the House of Representatives, and their entire conception of their role in a divided government.
He gave Republicans almost no ground, making the briefest of references to their defining concern, the nation's deficit spending. Perhaps confrontation will prove to be a fruitful strategy. Mr Obama's supporters would point to his first term, and the serial obstructionism of Republicans in Congress, and argue that the president has no choice but to come out fighting, as he seeks to achieve anything in his final few years in office.
I wish I could feel so gung-ho. Those same founding fathers ensured that an American president must share his vast powers with Congress, and Republicans still control the House of Representatives and can filibuster and stall legislation in the Senate, through their minority there. How did today's speech set out the process by which Mr Obama plans to govern? It was fascinating to see Mr Obama sketch out his vision of how individualism and American risk-taking need a progressive safety net to thrive.
That will be a potent argument for Democrats to promote in future elections, as they seek to occupy the centre ground of politics and corral Republicans on the political fringes. Today's inaugural address also set out attack lines that Democrats will be able to use in the event of continued Republican obstructionism, as they seek to blame their opponents for dysfunction in Washington and make Republicans pay the electoral price in the mid-terms and the general election.
But if you believe that getting anything done in the next four years will require the support of at least some moderate Republicans, it is hard to see how Mr Obama's inaugural address will have helped much. The president came to the Capitol as a victorious commander, staking claims to large swathes of American political territory.
But the public did not hand him complete victory. A majority of states have Republican governors, and partly through gerrymandering and partly through more organic quirks of electoral geography , Republicans have a lock on the House of Representatives. It was a powerful speech, but how this ends well, I struggle to see.

But the real interesting thing about Mr. Axelrod is that he is known as a street fighter. Well, Mr. Monti, who usually speaks about the balance of payments and the machinery of the European Union, ripped into Angelino Alfano, the putative candidate for premier for the People of Freedom party headed by Silvio Berlusconi , using atypically aggressive sarcasm.
That kind of pivot looks inevitable given that polls show that Mr. Berlusconi is clambering back from near oblivion while Mr. The risk is he goes too far. For a while, that was the game plan — in fact, Mr.
A split that has stood the test of time
Monti needed Mr. Bersani in need of a new coalition partner. Monti recruited aboard will not be enough to form a stable government. ROME — At the tender age of 12, Pier Luigi Bersani led his fellow altar boys in a strike against their parish priest to win back tips from Easter services. Beppe Grillo is a controversial Italian comedian shaking up Italian politics. Here's his backstory. With a bigger borrowing burden than any of its neighbors save near-bankrupt Greece, Italy remains one of the biggest wild cards in the long-term viability of the euro. While serving in left-leaning cabinets in the s and s, the cigar-chomping year-old surfaced as a powerful advocate of reforms considered key to modernizing the business climate in long-stagnate Italy.
He has nevertheless raised eyebrows with investors by striking a coalition deal with more strident leftists as well as for openly suggesting he would move to fine-tune, if not overhaul, at least some of the budget-cutting measures pushed through last year. Such changes, he has said, would include higher taxes on the rich to lessen the burden on the poor. In an extensive interview this month with The Washington Post, he additionally suggested that, if elected, he would push to renegotiate strict European limits on budget deficits and debt in a bid to simulate growth.
Yet Berlusconi, who represents the center-right, has proven a far more outspoken critic of new taxes and spending cuts than Bersani. Even interim Prime Minister Monti — the fiscally tough technocrat chosen by Parliament to replace Berlusconi who is seeking a full term — has recently said some of his own measures went too far while others did not go far enough, suggesting any winner here would tinker with the formula that allowed Italy to escape financial collapse last year.
Jan 12th from the print edition. By Lucy Hughes-Hallett. Buy from Amazon. Lucy Hughes-Hallett, a British biographer and critic, in a deeply evocative new biography, suggests probably not. There is too much blood on his hands both from the first world war and from the 15 bizarre months in when he was the charismatic duce of a rogue state in the Adriatic port of Fiume now Rijeka in Croatia. And yet there is greatness in the man. During the great war, on which he had so influentially preached to his countrymen, he was capable of acts of heroism and even chivalry, as the author herself admits.
So wherein lies the problem? His life, his dress, his lovemaking, his going to war—everything was so minutely stage-managed with an eye to how it would appear in the press or in the histories. Although Ms Hughes-Hallett valiantly but ultimately without conviction teases out a few timorous examples to the contrary, it is almost impossible to believe in any spontaneous act of humility or empathy in the man.
There are acts of beauty, but these are often sinister and his story serves largely to show the moral emptiness of pure aestheticism. At first, the audience applauded him act after act; but by the end it tired of the posturing. Ms Hughes-Hallett evokes the edgy relationship between these two unaccommodating egos with particular adroitness. He was a writer, after all; a turbine of extraordinary creativity, an intense observer of the nuances of light, of faces, landscape, flowers, the gore of war and of every conceivable inflection of the sexual act.
He exhausted himself with the sheer expenditure of energy, and then recharged his depleted resources with the thrill of his most remarkable passion: aviation. For him it was both sublime and superhuman. Flying theatrically, far above the unseemly mess of footsoldiery in the trenches, he could once again be the heroic protagonist. It is not easy to make sense of the life of a man who was a silk-swathed aesthete, prophetic versifier, manic aviator and martial demagogue all in one. But in telling the story of his life, Ms Hughes-Hallett deftly unpicks the strands that compose and ultimately resolve these incongruities.
Her style is rich, ironic and pugnacious; she jousts willingly with him and the reader becomes a spectator of this subtle and fascinating contest. Jan 8th , by D. Yet this will change if a new way of assessing income, called redditometro, is a success. The system, which became law on January 4 th , aims to winkle out many of the large number of Italians who cheat on their annual income tax returns.
The redditometro , which will first be used in March to examine income tax returns for , is best described as big government meets big data meaning large data bases and huge computing power. The approach is based on the sensible idea that in order to spend one needs an equivalent income. So if tax authorities can calculate how much a person has spent, they can tell how honest he was on his tax return. All residents have a unique tax number that they have to provide for a wide range of transactions, such as utilities contracts, home mortgages and insurance policies.
It has divided Italy into five geographical areas and calculate the budget for eleven different family types, from a single under 35 years to a couple over 65 years. Those who fail the test will be asked to justify their returns. Those who are unable to do so will be given the chance to cut a deal, meaning they will have to pay the evaded tax and a reduced penalty. Predictably, the redditometro has already proven controversial.
Economists worry that it may have a dampening effect on Italy's already depressed economy. Others take issue with the fact that the system will look at tax returns that were filed three years ago. Yet others object to the use of national statistics and question the accuracy of average spending patterns. Most honest Italians, however, welcome the new weapon in the fight against tax evasion. But few are betting that tax authorities will advance smoothly to victory. Many expect the unhappy recipients of the authorities' attention to be impoverished pensioners and harassed housewives, rather than habitual tax dodgers.
Jan 5th from the print edition. THE advantage of living to a very great age is that you tend to have the last word. Rita Levi-Montalcini saw her scientific discoveries sniffed at throughout the s and s, only to win the Nobel prize for physiology in She conducted her early experiments in hiding, but rose to the pinnacle of Italian public life. Both were a matter of precision, of flair, and of insisting—sometimes loudly, sometimes in silence—on what she wanted. The battles raged right from the beginning, at the heart of her wealthy Jewish family in Turin.
Quite against his wishes, she enrolled in medical school. On her graduation in she became an assistant to Giuseppe Levi, a histologist who taught her the technique of silver-staining nerve cells so that they could be seen more clearly under a microscope. The fascists, however, had other plans for her, and in barred her from academia.
Levi, barred too, now came to work for her in secret, their roles reversed. First there, and later in a safer house in the countryside where she would cycle round from farm to farm, collecting the necessary eggs , the pair worked on the problem she made her own: how nerves growing out from an embryonic spinal cord find the particular developing limbs they will innervate.
In Viktor Hamburger, an embryologist at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, had suggested that limb buds produce an attractive chemical signal. Her own experiments, using scalpels made out of sewing needles, persuaded her that what the buds actually produce is a substance that stimulates nerve growth. Once the war was over, Hamburger noticed the clarity of her work; he invited her to St Louis to continue her experiments, and there she stayed, on and off, until her retirement in though she never really retired, snapping that it led to decay of the brain.
Eventually, in , she and Cohen shared the Nobel for their discoveries. She later showed that NGF is important in the immune system, launching a line of research that has since grown exponentially. From she began to divide her time between St Louis and Rome too much missed where she set up a laboratory. In both places, she worked ferociously. Five hours of sleep a night was quite enough. One meal a day, at lunchtime—soup, an orange—suited her fine. Work kept her going. Her roller-coaster life had given her a high sense of drama, and she could tell a good story—too good, sometimes, for the plain-words world of science.
When one neuroscientist toned down her description of their findings in a joint paper, she accused him of turning her beautiful prose into boiled spinach. He called her a cross between Marie Curie and Maria Callas. The dark side of the brain. With a mother and twin sister who were both painters, she, too, often thought like an artist.
She made intuitive, imaginative leaps which she then tested by experiment, rather than edging towards the truth in pigeon steps. Many of her papers she illustrated herself delighting to draw the haloes of nerve fibres growing out in orderly confidence from the ganglia of chicks ; she made her own clothes and designed her own jewellery. Tiny and bird-like, with a beautiful coif of white or rinsed hair in old age, she wore high heels with her lab coat, and wielded her minute spatulas with exquisitely manicured hands. An ardent champion of scientific training for women she set up a foundation for it , she never married or had children.
It was a girlhood decision she never regretted; she simply refused to play second fiddle, as her mother had. Nor did she care to stop. She actively supported the centre-left governments of Romano Prodi and enjoyed hobbling those of Silvio Berlusconi, especially when they proposed laws unhelpful to research. One of her great wishes was to bequeath to Italy a world-class institute for scientific research. EBRI later suffered from lack of money, and she was accused of acting like an autocrat over it; but she was swiftly forgiven, in Italy at least. In a Dance of the Seven Veils, Mr Monti, who has headed a non-party government since November , teasingly revealed his intentions.
First, he announced he was ready to serve again as prime minister after the general election, which is likely to be held on February 28th. Then he launched a policy agenda. Finally he held talks with a cluster of like-minded centre-right groups. It was decided that they should form an alliance for the election to the Senate, but run independently—with as many as four sets of candidates—for the Chamber of Deputies.
Adding to the potential for confusion in the minds of voters, Mr Monti ruled himself out of the election, but not the campaign. His name will feature on the logo of the parties that support his agenda, but he himself will not be a parliamentary candidate ostensibly because, as a life senator, he is already a member.
It was not the most propitious start, especially since two of his best-known supporters decided to pull out of the race. Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, who heads NTV, a high-speed train operator, and Ferrari, a sports-car maker, feared charges of conflicts of interest. The party leading the polls is the centre-left Democratic Party PD , which has attracted scant attention since a primary election in December that saw its leader, Pier Luigi Bersani, chosen as its prime ministerial contender. On December 29th and 30th, the PD held another primary to select parliamentary candidates.
The PD put the turnout at over 1m, a respectable tally for a vote limited to party members held just after Christmas. That would be enough to give the left a working majority in both houses of parliament. A clear-cut victory, even for the centre-left, should be welcome to the markets. Romano Prodi, who headed a centre-left government in , implemented an austerity programme that was largely responsible for winning Italy admission to the euro.
The minister in charge of deregulation was Mr Bersani. Mr Bersani, a former Communist and lifelong politician, is further to the left. And it looks as if his party in parliament will also be tilted more in that direction. To secure the prime ministerial candidacy, Mr Bersani had to fight off a challenge from the moderate wing of the PD in the person of Matteo Renzi, the young mayor of Florence.
But the results also furthered a much-needed rejuvenation of the PD that should help to erode its internal divisions. A year-old will top the list of its candidates in Lombardy, the region around Milan. Her counterpart in Palermo, also a woman, is aged Mr Berlusconi is in growing difficulties. His best hope of exerting influence after the election is in the Senate. For that he needs an alliance with the Northern League, which can deliver him seats in Lombardy and Veneto. Mr Monti poses an altogether more serious challenge to Mr Bersani.
What scant polling evidence there is suggests he can rob votes from the PD. Paradoxically, it is the reassuring Mr Monti who is most likely to cause an unstable result in the form of a hung Senate. That, however, would enable Mr Monti to offer his services to Mr Bersani as a coalition partner and, just as importantly, a counter weight to the radical left. Comentarios 6. El dimisionario primer ministro italiano ha asegurado no entender a Berlusconi. El objetivo es llevar acabo "reformas" que creen "puestos de trabajo" , dijo. Angelique Chrisafis in Paris. The Guardian , Tuesday 1 January But it is uncertain when a new version of the tax will be introduced and whether it will be watered down.
He added that the exceptional tax on France's wealthy would be "adjusted without changing its objective" but did not provide details of any new proposal. The president, who is at record unpopularity levels in the polls as he faces a grim year of further economic gloom in France, suffered a major personal blow over the weekend when France's highest court threw out his tax proposal. The temporary tax, which Hollande had described as an act of "morality" and "patriotism" by the wealthy, now faces a delay of at least a year, if not a mortal blow.
The measure was rejected as unconstitutional on the basis of a technical issue, leaving France surprised that the government could have overlooked the fine detail of its flagship measure. The embarrassed government was attacked for amateurism by political opponents to the right and left of Hollande. But it had become a crucial political marker for Hollande in terms of his support on the left. Dropping the measure altogether would be seen as very damaging to his political credibility.
Hollande also used his new year's address, a setpiece in French politics, to reiterate what he has called his "great battle for employment". He has promised to stem France's constant rise in joblessness and ensure the numbers start to drop by the end of This task now looks extremely difficult after France saw its 19th month of rising unemployment.
The new year could soon see France breaking its own record of 3. Hollande said he did not underestimate the "serious difficulties" facing the government, admitting "this march forward has not been without bumps or setbacks" but insisting his reforms would get France "out of this crisis faster and stronger". Italy mourns loss of Jewish scientist who worked undercover under the fascists and won the Nobel prize for medicine in Associated Press in Rome. The Guardian , Sunday 30 December Rita Levi-Montalcini, a biologist who conducted underground research in defiance of fascist persecution and won a Nobel prize for helping to unlock the mysteries of the cell, has died at her home in Rome.
She was The mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, said her death was a great loss "for all of humanity", adding she represented "civic conscience, culture and the spirit of research of our time". Italy 's so-called Lady of the Cells was a Jew who lived through anti-Semitic discrimination and the Nazi invasion and became one of her country's leading scientists. She shared the Nobel prize for medicine in with US biochemist Stanley Cohen for groundbreaking research.
In Italy made her a senator for life. Levi-Montalcini kept up an intensive work schedule well into old age. Her niece, Piera Levi-Montalcini, who is a city councillor in Turin, said: "A beacon of life is extinguished. At the age of 20 she overcame her father's objections to women studying and obtained a degree in medicine and surgery from Turin University in She studied under top anatomist Giuseppe Levi, whom she often credited for her own success.
After graduating, she began working as a research assistant in neurobiology but lost her job in when Italy's Fascist regime passed laws barring Jews from universities and major professions. Her family decided to stay in Italy and, as the second world war neared, she set up a makeshift lab in her bedroom where she began studying the development of chicken embryos , which would later lead to her major discovery of mechanisms that regulate cell and organ growth.
As eggs became scarce during the war, she cycled around the countryside to buy them from farmers. She was soon joined in her secret research by Levi, her university mentor, who was also Jewish and became her assistant. The German invasion of Italy in forced the family to flee to Florence and live underground. After the the city was liberated, Levi-Montalcini worked as a doctor at a refugee centre, and in she was invited to the US, where she remained for more than 20 years.
During her research at Washington University in St Louis she discovered nerve growth factor, the first substance known to regulate cell growth. She showed that when tumours from mice were transplanted into chicken embryos they induced rapid growth of the embryonic nervous system. She concluded that the tumour released a factor promoting nerve growth that affected certain cell types. Her research increased the understanding of many conditions, including tumours, developmental malformations and senile dementia.
It also led to the discovery by Stanley Cohen of another substance, epidermal growth factor, which stimulates the proliferation of epithelial cells. Levi-Montalcini returned to Italy to become the director of the laboratory of cell biology at the National Council of Scientific Research in Rome in After retiring in the late s, she continued to work as a guest professor and wrote several books to popularise science. She created the Levi-Montalcini Foundation to grant scholarships and promote education programmes worldwide, particularly for women in Africa. She had no children and never married, fearing such ties would undercut her independence.

Chiara Albanese. Rosario Crocetta says he is married to the people, but he is in a unique position to raise awareness in a conservative region. Sicilian, devoted Catholic and homosexual. This unlikely collection of words defines Rosario Crocetta , the newly elected governor of Sicily. But his election, which has come at the expense of Silvio Berlusconi's rightwing People of Freedom party, is not a victory for Italy's gay rights movement.
He is one of only two openly gay men to be elected governor in Italy, but Crocetta has never used his sexual orientation to raise awareness of gay rights, or to commit to change Italy's unique status as a western country that does not recognise any kind of same-sex union. On the contrary, Crocetta has been quoted as saying that if he won he would refrain from sex. The Union of Christian and Centre Democrats, a centrist party close to the Catholic church, which joined the leftwing Democratic party to form the coalition Crocetta leads, is also likely to limit pro-gay political initiatives in the region.
Crocetta's inability to act on social rights will be compounded by the lack of power given to governors under Italian legislation. Isolated initiatives approved in Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany and Umbria central and northern Italy have not positively affected daily lives of gays and lesbians, who still face social and legislative discrimination," says gay activist Stefano Bucaioni. Crocetta has often rejected the common perception that southern Italy has a more homophobic attitude than central and northern regions.
After leaving prison in England, Oscar Wilde took refuge in Palermo. Seen like this, there is lot people have to learn about the south," he said recently. Yet the latest data from Italy's national institute of statistics, Istat, seems to contradict him. Young gay people who come out in southern Italy are more likely to be the victim of acts of aggression more directed at men than women or of discrimination in the workplace and are more likely to take their own lives.
Since the beginning of his political career in , when he was elected mayor of his hometown of Gela, Crocetta has been able to offset the potential disadvantage of his sexual orientation by not emphasising it in public. The new governor is mostly known to the public for his anti-mafia initiatives and his strong religious beliefs. After he voted on Sunday, Crocetta headed back to Gela for prayers. The Catholic church, of course, still strongly opposes the introduction of gay marriage in Italy.
Crocetta shares his religious affiliation with Nichi Vendola, governor of the southern region of Apulia since , and Italy's only other openly gay governor. But unlike Crocetta, Vendola has put gay rights at the top of his political agenda, saying that he would like to marry his partner and adopt children with him, positively impacting on social attitudes towards gay people in the region and nationally.
The hope is now that, having succeeded in something that would have been unbelievable only a few weeks ago, Crocetta will channel his political power to encourage greater respect for gay people, and he will use his personal story to demonstrate that a successful Italian politician can be gay and Catholic at the same time. Catholic church mouthpiece devotes five articles to film Skyfall, praising 'beautiful Bond girls' and 'essential vodka martinis'. Tom Kington in Rome. He is known for the violent retribution he administers to his enemies, thinking nothing of shooting, stabbing or electrocuting them as he hands out justice on behalf of Queen and country, before uttering a dry quip over their corpses.
So you might imagine that James Bond 's approach to forgiveness does not have much in common with the Catholic Church. But the Vatican 's daily newspaper has overlooked such niceties and given delirious coverage to Skyfall , the latest Bond film, claiming it shows a new, introspective side of the British agent while thankfully cramming in the usual dose of exotic locations and "extremely beautiful Bond girls". L'Osservatore Romano has tried recently to move with the times, praising cult films such as the Blues Brothers, lauding Bob Dylan and publishing a women's supplement, ever since the editor, Gian Maria Vian, was told by the pope in to liven up the year-old daily.
But its Skyfall review takes things to new limits for the newspaper, which ran it in Wednesday's edition alongside coverage of the th anniversary of the Sistine Chapel, the appointment of new bishops in Peru and the Philippines, and the welcome news that catholic numbers are rising in Ireland.
The 23rd Bond film is one of the best in the longest cinematic story of all time," it states, adding the film "does not lack any of the classic ingredients which have made James Bond a legend — the title credits song, adrenalin pumping action, amazing hyper-realistic chases, exotic locations, extremely beautiful Bond girls, the usual super villain and the essential vodka martini. For the bishops, priests and cardinals itching to catch Skyfall, the paper gives a breathless breakdown of the plot, admiring the generational clash that "is the key to the film".
Daniel Craig, who claimed in Casino Royale that he preferred having sex with married women, is deemed to be "ever more convincing", in his latest appearance, while Judy Dench is "perfect" as M. Javier Bardem, is described as terrific, "up there with Goldfinger, Dr No and Rosa Klebb", although no mention is given to the homoerotic feel he gives his character. Summing up, the paper declares: "Nothing will ever be the same again on the big screen for James Bond. A background piece on Ian Fleming follows, with L'Osservatore Romano's extensive coverage wrapping up with a focus on Bond soundtracks, heaping praise on Monty Norman's Bond theme.
And in a eulogy eloquent enough to make any priest sob into his bible, it praises the "two minutes of music played during the legendary gun-barrel sequence which evokes a world of impeccable dinner jackets, cocktails, casinos, luxury villas, femme fatales and powerful cars.
Mais pourquoi pas? Il n'y a pas de sujet tabou. Lire : 39 heures : le "pourquoi pas" de M. Ayrault, un "couac" pour la droite. Euro-Kris e. Michael Day. Wednesday 24 October The head of the Major Risks Commission has resigned in protest at the conviction of seven colleagues found guilty of failing to give adequate warning of the L'Aquila earthquake. Ein irischer Abgeordneter sieht durch den Mechanismus das Haftungsverbot verletzt. Ein Entscheidung der Luxemburger Richter wird in den kommenden Monaten erwartet. Claudio Eva says ruling against him and five others for falsely reassuring statements over quake was 'eye for an eye'.
An Italian physicist handed a six-year jail sentence for giving falsely reassuring statements over an earthquake has condemned as "medieval" the court that convicted him. Claudio Eva, who was sentenced on Monday along with five other scientists and a government official over the earthquake in that killed more than people and levelled the city of L'Aquila, said the verdict was an "eye for an eye". The ruling by a court in the shattered city, which defied the commonly held view that earthquakes cannot be predicted, has prompted outrage from the world's scientific community October 5, , am.
Instead, Mr. Obama — and the economy — received some unexpected good news. Economists will spend the rest of the day parsing the numbers and arguing over exactly the best way to describe the report, but there is little question about its overall thrust: positive. Speaking to 1, supporters at George Mason University a few hours after the numbers were released, Mr.
More Americans entered the work force; more people are getting jobs. The rate dropped sharply , to 7. The survey of businesses showed a smaller gain, but it also showed that hiring gains in July and August were larger than expected. Obama conceded that too many Americans were still out of work. But he turned the good economic news into a rallying cry against his opponent, Mitt Romney , lashing him to the policies of the George W.
Bush administration. But Mitt Romney sought to deny Mr. Campaigning in Abingdon, Va. Romney said the unemployment rate has declined because people have given up looking for work, and are no longer counted in the rate. So it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11 percent.
At this point in the presidential race, any single unemployment report is unlikely to have a major effect on the campaign. The recovery from the financial crisis continues, but it will take a long time before the economy feels healthy. For Mr. Obama, however, a fundamental change in the contours of the race is not the goal.
Polls have consistently shown him with a small lead. The worry among his campaign advisers is that Mr. That concern no doubt remains, but it would have been all the stronger if the jobs report had been weaker. Obama, in an interview shortly after his election, said that if unemployment remained above 8 percent, he was unlikely to win a second term.
And a standard component of Mr. Obama, on the campaign trail and in his advertising, is the fact that the unemployment rate had remained above 8 percent. Obama took office. The report covers the middle of each month, before a new president is inaugurated on Jan. For all the numbers in the report, the simple summary is that more people had jobs last month than economists expected. That gain was the main reason for the sharp drop in the unemployment rate. Of the gain, , of the jobs came among part-time workers who wanted to be working full time. The monthly survey of businesses showed a gain of only , jobs, which in the broad range of the number needed merely to keep up with population growth.
But each monthly jobs report also updates the numbers from the previous two months, as the Labor Department economists receive more detailed information. This month, that information showed that the economy gained 86, more jobs in July and August than previously thought, ameliorating earlier worries about a slowdown in August hiring.
Combining the revisions with the September numbers, the new jobs report effectively shows a gain of , jobs in the business survey. In both the household survey and business survey, that is, the overall gain in full-time jobs was stronger than expected. In the last 12 months, the economy has gained an average of , jobs a month. It gained an average of 85, in , and in , it lost an average of , At the current pace of hiring, the economy remains years away from an unemployment rate that economists consider healthy.
Obama has emphasized that the economy is moving in the right direction after a severe financial crisis, while Mr. Romney has emphasized that it has improved more slowly than many voters hoped or than Mr. Obama predicted. The surprisingly strong report led to suggestions from some Republicans on Friday morning that Labor Department economists were manipulating the numbers for Mr. Many economists of both parties believe such accusations are false.
The Labor Department economists who compile the jobs report are not political appointees. Michael Barbaro and Ashley Parker contributed reporting. EZB-Chef im Bundestag. Abgeordnete laden Draghi ein. Eine Rede vor dem gesamten Parlament wird vor allem von der Union kritisch gesehen. Ein Termin stehe aber noch nicht fest.
What did you discuss? I suggested to President Van Rompuy that it would be good if he organized an informal brainstorming of the 27 heads of state of the European Union to reflect on whether the attitude of people vis-a-vis European integration is satisfactory or whether, as I tend to believe, the euro-zone crisis is creating resentments between the various countries of Europe. It would be very unfortunate if the single currency, which is the most ambitious part of the long process of integration, were to become the seed for.
There is a big debate in Europe: Is the euro crisis leading to a deeper European Union or is the euro zone breaking apart? How do you see it? Both things are true. The euro zone is not falling apart. Precisely because of the euro-zone crisis, European integration in the sense of more common policymaking is making progress.
Like on previous occasions, crisis brings progress in European integration. Except this time, the use of money by some countries to support other countries is creating some acrimony. There has been a clear manifestation of this, in particular with regard to the Germans and Greeks. I welcome very much the decision by the ECB. It will feel free to buy on the secondary market government securities of the countries which are characterized by unduly high interest rates. How would you characterize what you have accomplished so far? We reformed the labor market in a way that will contain wages in the future.
We reduced the deficit through austerity measures to the extent that it will be in balance next year. Also, we introduced a reform of the pension system, raising the retirement age and linking it for the future to the life expectancy of the population.
We introduced many liberalization measures — new shopping hours, that is one. We introduced many measures in the area of competition, like preventing interlocking directorates — namely a director being at the same time on the board of two banks which compete. We unbundled the gas production from the gas distribution, so as to allow greater competition among the gas producers. Do you believe that austerity is enough? Or do you need to focus on growth? Austerity is certainly not enough.
We need to have growth. Growth in any individual European country has to be the result of policies for growth pursued in that country consistent with budgetary discipline. But [there must] also [be] growth policies conducted at the level of the E. We are pursuing growth policies domestically through these liberalization measures, and we have been very active in promoting a series of measures that the European Council in June adopted to foster.
Do you see any way for Greece to exit the euro zone and not to harm the other countries? No, I believe there is no way for Greece to exit the euro zone and not to harm other countries. It is also in the overwhelming interest of all other countries that Greece should stay in the euro zone but, of course, continue the deep process of fiscal discipline and structural reforms that it has embarked upon. What the Greeks are achieving is falling short of the requirements of the E. Normally, it takes a generation to have a change in culture and policies of the sort that we want Greece to achieve in three or four years.
That they deliver fully is unrealistic. That they deliver to a sufficiently high degree is realistic — painful but needed. Under those conditions, and this will be the position of Italy, we should support Greece and its continued membership in the E. That is one of the reasons why it is in the general interest that Greece stays. What about your own future? Reportedly, a coalition could be formed in the next election that would ask you to stay on as prime minister.
