Giorgio Celli, Nuovo bestiario postmoderno, e altri scritti

26-lug-14

Sono 8 milioni i gatti e 7 milioni i cani (per non parlare di pesci, uccelli, roditori vari, furetti, conigli, ecc.) che vivono nelle nostre abitazioni. Ci fanno compagnia, ci osservano. Giorgio Celli ci aiuta a capirli. Raccontando del cane simulatore, del gatto allo specchio, dell’ape farmacista, della formica robot, del piccione mistico, e così via.
Racconti, aneddoti, storie vere e riflessioni del grande etologo che, nello stile didattico e divulgativo che gli è proprio, ci svela i segreti del comportamento degli animali domestici (gatti e cani) e di quelli che vivono vicino a noi (api, formiche eccetera), dei loro
linguaggi, della loro etologia.
Aiutandoci a conoscere meglio anche noi stessi.

Giorgio Nebbia, Ambientiamoci. Racconti di ecologia.

26-lug-14

L’ecologia è il racconto della vita, il copione del grande dramma, bellissimo e terribile, che si svolge sul palcoscenico del nostro pianeta. Pieno di protagonisti, dall’umile scarabeo che ricicla i rifiuti degli animali più grossi, agli esseri umani che lasciano andare i propri escrementi nei fiumi e nel mare, dalle silenziose coloratissime piante come la ginestra, alle fabbriche in cui si inventano nuove merci e ai laboratori in cui si cerca di svelare i segreti della natura.
Questo libro si propone di raccontare vita, morte e miracoli di alcuni di questi protagonisti, vegetali, animali, umani ed esseri inanimati come l’acqua, la spiaggia, il mare, l’aria del cielo, il terreno dei pendii. Tante piccole storie in cui domina la solidarietà fra esseri viventi e il loro ambiente circostante — è ben questa l’ecologia, la scienza della pace e dell’armonia.

WHITE HOUSE VIDEO MESSAGE: Embracing Economic Patriotism

WHITE HOUSE VIDEO MESSAGE: Embracing Economic Patriotism

WASHINGTON, DC – In this week’s message, Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council Cecilia Muñoz highlighted the progress our economy has made since September 2008, but also discussed the small but growing group of big corporations that are fleeing the country to avoid paying taxes, even as corporate profits are as high as ever. The best way to level the playing field, as the President’s budget earlier this year proposed, is through tax reform that lowers the corporate tax rate, closes wasteful loopholes, and simplifies the tax code for everybody.

The audio of the address and video of the message will be available online HERE.

Hi, everybody.  Our businesses have now added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 52 months.  The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since September 2008 – the fastest one-year drop in nearly 30 years. 

But there’s another trend that threatens to undermine the progress you’ve helped make.  Even as corporate profits are as high as ever, a small but growing group of big corporations are fleeing the country to get out of paying taxes.  They’re keeping their headquarters, and most of their business, inside the United States, but they’re basically renouncing their citizenship and declaring that they’re based somewhere else, just to avoid paying their fair share. 

I want to be clear: this is only a few big corporations so far.  The vast majority of American businesses play by the rules.  But these companies cherrypick their taxes.  It damages the country’s finances. 

The best way to level the playing field is through tax reform that lowers the corporate tax rate, closes wasteful loopholes, and simplifies the tax code for everybody.  In the President’s budget earlier this year, he proposed closing this unpatriotic tax loophole for good. 

Together, we can build up our middle class, hand down something better to our kids, and restore the American Dream for all who work and study and strive for it. 

Thanks, and have a great weekend.

Weekly Address: Closing Corporate Tax Loopholes

26-lug-14

WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, the President continued his call for our nation to rally around an economic patriotism that says rather than protecting wasteful tax loopholes for a few at the top, we should be investing in things like education and job training that grow the economy for everybody.  The President highlighted the need to close one of the most unfair tax loopholes that allows companies to avoid paying taxes here at home by shifting their residence for tax purposes out of the country. The President has put forth a budget that does just that, and he has called for business tax reform that makes investment in the United States attractive, and creates incentives for companies to invest and create jobs here at home. And while he will continue to make the case for tax reform, the President is calling on Congress to take action and close this loophole now.

The audio of the address and video of the address will be available online at www.whitehouse.gov at 6:00 a.m. ET, July 26, 2014.

Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
The White House
July 26, 2014

Hi, everybody.  Our businesses have now added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 52 months.  The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since September 2008 – the fastest one-year drop in nearly 30 years.  401(k)s are growing, fewer homes are underwater, and for the first time in more than a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that the world’s number one place to invest isn’t China; it’s the United States of America – and our lead is growing.

None of this is an accident.  It’s thanks to the resilience and resolve of the American people that our country has recovered faster and come farther than almost any other advanced nation on Earth.

But there’s another trend that threatens to undermine the progress you’ve helped make.  Even as corporate profits are as high as ever, a small but growing group of big corporations are fleeing the country to get out of paying taxes.  They’re keeping most of their business inside the United States, but they’re basically renouncing their citizenship and declaring that they’re based somewhere else, just to avoid paying their fair share.

I want to be clear: this is only a few big corporations so far.  The vast majority of American businesses pay their taxes right here in the United States.  But when some companies cherrypick their taxes, it damages the country’s finances.  It adds to the deficit.  It makes it harder to invest in the things that will keep America strong, and it sticks you with the tab for what they stash offshore.  Right now, a loophole in our tax laws makes this totally legal – and I think that’s totally wrong.  You don’t get to pick which rules you play by, or which tax rate you pay, and neither should these companies. 

The best way to level the playing field is through tax reform that lowers the corporate tax rate, closes wasteful loopholes, and simplifies the tax code for everybody.  But stopping companies from renouncing their citizenship just to get out of paying their fair share of taxes is something that cannot wait.  That’s why, in my budget earlier this year, I proposed closing this unpatriotic tax loophole for good.  Democrats in Congress have advanced proposals that would do the same thing.  A couple Republicans have indicated they want to address this too, and I hope more join us. 

Rather than double-down on the top-down economics that let a fortunate few play by their own rules, let’s embrace an economic patriotism that says we rise or fall together, as one nation, and as one people.  Let’s reward the hard work of ordinary Americans who play by the rules.  Together, we can build up our middle class, hand down something better to our kids, and restore the American Dream for all who work for it and study for it and strive for it.

Thanks, and have a great weekend.
