Interventi riguardanti gli organismi sportivi

La legge di bilancio 2019 ha mutato la denominazione della “CONI Servizi spa” in “Sport e Salute Spa” e ne ha ridisciplinato la governance, in particolare attribuendo a vari esponenti del Governo, previo parere delle Commissioni parlamentari, il compito di nominare il presidente e gli altri membri del consiglio di amministrazione.
Inoltre, ha attribuito alla stessa il compito di provvedere al sostegno degli organismi sportivi – in precedenza assicurato dal CONI – prevedendo, tuttavia, che ciò avviene anche sulla base degli indirizzi generali adottati dallo stesso CONI.
Precedentemente, era stato stabilizzato il finanziamento del Comitato italiano paralimpico (CIP) e il medesimo Comitato era stato trasformato in ente autonomo di diritto pubblico. Inoltre, era stato ridefinito il limite dei mandati degli organi del CONI, del CIP e degli altri organismi sportivi. Infine, con l’istituzione presso il CONI di un apposito Registro nazionale, si era regolamentata la professione di agente sportivo.

Disponibile Wine 4.0! Supporto per Vulkan e Direct3D 12, CSMT è abilitato di default

Dopo essere stato in sviluppo per un anno Wine 4.0 è ora ufficialmente disponibile. La nuova stable release include importanti novità come il supporto per Vulkan, Direct3D 12 e per i joypad.
Per chi non lo sapesse Wine è un software scritto in C che permette il funzionamento dei programmi sviluppati per il sistema operativo Microsoft Windows su Linux. Wine è usato anche da Proton, il layer sviluppato da Valve per Steam Play.

Disponibile Wine 4.0

wine 4.0Le modifiche introdotte con questa major release sono tantissime. Il supporto per Direct3D 12 è ancora sperimentale. Chiaramente per Direct3D 12 è necessaria la libreria vkd3d e una scheda grafica compatibile con Vulkan. Per quanto riguarda Vulkan invece è stato implementato un driver completo.

Il Multi-Threaded Command Stream (CSMT) è abilitato di default, dovrebbe fornire migliori performance lato grafica. Sono state implementate nuove funzionalità per Direct3D 10 e 11 inoltre gli OpenGL core contexts sono ora abilitati per tutte le schede grafiche e per tutte le versioni di Direct3D inferiori alla 12.

Diverse interfacce di Direct3D 11 sono state aggiornate alla versione 11.2 e altrettante interfacce di DXGI sono state aggiornate alla versione 1.6. Questo permette a tutte le applicazioni che richiedono queste nuove interfacce di funzionare correttamente.

E’ stato introdotto il supporto per le textures 3D compresse S3TC. Le textures S3TC-compressed 2D erano già supportate. Gli HID game controllers sono ora supportati nelle API XInput e Raw Input. E’ stato poi implementato un driver SDL per rendere i pad SDL compatibili con l’interfaccia HID. Ultimo ma non meno importante: presente un primo supporto per l’HiDPI su Android.

Trovate ulteriori dettagli nelle note di rilascio ufficiali. Potete scaricare Wine 4.0 dal sito ufficiale. Trovate i binari per macOS, Android, Ubuntu, Debian e Fedora.

Giovedì 24 Gennaio 2019 – 83ª Seduta pubblica : Comunicato di seduta

Seduta
Ora inizio: 09:43

Il Presidente di turno La Russa ha comunicato all’Assemblea che la Conferenza dei Capigruppo è attualmente sospesa e verrà riconvocata alle ore 10. Prima di sospendere la seduta, i sen. Casini, Alfieri (PD), Urso (FdI), Stefania Craxi (FI-BP), Vescovi (L-SP) e Lucidi (M5S) sono intervenuti sulla situazione venezuelana, degenerata negli ultimi giorni a causa delle manifestazioni antigovernative. Secondo PD e FdI, l’Italia non può far finta di niente e, al pari di altri Stati che si sono apertamente schierati, deve prendere posizione riconoscendo il Governo legittimo di Juan Guaidò, unico a poter realmente favorire un processo democratico. FI ha fatto un appello al dialogo per scongiurare il rischio di una guerra civile. La Lega ha espressovicinanza al popolo venezuelano mentre M5S ha evidenziato che il Governo italiano sta facendo la sua parte e ha recentemente siglato un accordo con il Governo venezuelano per la fornitura di medicinali alla popolazione italiana ivi residente.

Old age, hate speech, press freedom: Critical issues in Nigeria’s 2019 presidential elections

Nigeria will hold a presidential election on February 16, 2019, and all eyes are on this election as a test to prove the strength of Nigeria's democratic norms, values and unity.

This year, there are five main candidates in the race out of 73 total presidential candidates. Two major contenders include the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari (All Progressive Congress) and the opposition candidate and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar (Peoples Democratic Party).

The other three candidates, Obiageli Ezekwesili, Kingsley Moghalu and Omoyole Sowore, have been termed the “third force” because they lack political experience but still present significant competition.

Amid the cacophony of electoral campaigns and the attendant passion from supporters — both online and offline — here are the key issues that may get lost in the noise.

Old and the strongman syndrome

Nigeria's two major contenders, Buhari, 76, and Atiku, 72, both have long histories of political engagement in Nigeria, leaving many to question their health and longevity as presidential hopefuls.

With the end of longtime rulers like South African President Jacob Zuma, 76, and Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, 94, who was forced out of power after 37 years as president, it has felt like an end to regimes led by the old and strong men in Africa. But this hope has not lasted. Paul Biya, 84, was re-elected as president of Cameroon, making him the oldest political leader in sub-Saharan Africa.

The health of Nigeria’s leaders became a major political consideration after late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua died in office on May 5, 2010. Yar’Adua's illness and continued absence created a power vacuum because he did not hand it over to his deputy, Goodluck Jonathan, before he traveled abroad for treatment.

Incumbent President Buhari has made about ten trips to the United Kingdom for medical treatment of an undisclosed ailment. He has spent “more than 170 days in London on official medical leave since becoming president in 2015,” according to the New York Times.

Can younger candidates stand a better chance? This year, there are 10 candidates under the age of 40 and 16 candidates between the ages of 45-49. But younger candidates may not fare well because Nigeria’s long history of military rule has embedded a culture of political actors who have both the clout and wealth to fund party politics and this takes time and connections to cultivate.

Buhari and Abubakar both have strong political bases. Buhari has a loyal following in the northern part of the country, while Abubakar is perceived as widely accepted across different tribes and religions in the country. Their ages do not appear to be a factor in garnering support and loyalty.

Ethnicity and religion

Nigeria is what's known as an ethnic fault line state — ethnicity and religion have long played a central role in elections and general politics. The 2015 elections showed that the two “major contestants received bloc votes from their various states and geopolitical zones,” according to an article in the Journal of African Elections. Also, ethnic sentiments were used to appeal to voters. Ethnocentric hate speech surged both online and offline, before and after the 2015 presidential elections.

Similarly, in 2017, some Nigerian writers raised alarm over the vile ethnic hate speech that almost consumed the nation. Former President Goodluck Jonathan lost in the polls over his failure to handle the Islamic militant group Boko Haram's bombings that rattled the nation and caused widespread insecurity. Boko Haram's abduction of schoolgirls in Chibok led to a global outcry of #BringBackOurGirls when it was clear to citizens that the government was not doing enough to intervene.

Buhari and Abubakar will both rely on ethnic alliances to win votes. Buhari, a northerner (Fulani/Muslim), has retained Yemi Osibanjo as his vice-presidential candidate in order to garner votes from the southwestern (Yoruba/Christian) part of the country. Abubakar, a northerner (Fulani/Muslim) has picked his vice-presidential candidate from the southeastern (Igbo/Christian) part of the country.

Because Buhari and Abubakar are from the same ethnoreligious group, tensions may not be as high as they were in 2015 elections when Jonathan Goodluck, a southern minority Ijaw Christian, ran against Buhari.

Free speech and press freedom

Buhari's administration has been accused of major human rights violations and many hashtags have trended on social media in 2018 calling for the release of detained netizens and journalists.

On March 17, 2016, Nigerian journalist Yomi Olomofe was brutally assaulted and detained by Nigerian police in an attack against free speech. Nigerian journalist Daniel Elombah and his brother, Timothy Elombah, were arrested on New Year's Day 2017 for a story they did not even write. In August that year, Nigerian trader Joe Fortemose Chinakwe was arrested by for naming his pet dog “Buhari”.

Jones Abiri, publisher of Weekly Source, was arrested on July 21, 2016, by state security (DSS) agents at his office in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. #FreeJonesAbiri trended for several days on Twitter until Abiri was released on August 15, 2018, after a two-year detention.

#FreeSamuelOgundipe trended when Nigerian journalist Samuel Ogundipe was detained for three days by Nigeria’s Special Tactical Squad after refusing to name his sources for a story concerning the forceful prevention of lawmakers by security agents from entering the Nigerian National Assembly in early August 2018.

Deji Adeyanju, a political activist and member of the opposition party, was re-arrested in December 2018 and has been in detention since then due to “a fresh petition.”

Buhari has openly expressed his aversion to a free press and freedom of speech. In an address to lawyers last year, he stated that “the rule of law must be subject to the supremacy of the nation’s security and national interest.”

On the other hand, Abubakar has promised to run “an inclusive governance structure” that will harness Nigeria's diversity and uphold “a just and fair environment where the rights of all citizens are protected by a transparent government.”

Only time will tell how these issues will unfold throughout the election period and beyond.

‘Nobody knows what will come next’: Venezuelans rally in strongest challenge to Maduro yet

Juan Guaidó, the president of the National Assembly, as he swore himself in as the acting president of Venezuela at a protest in Caracas on January 23, 2018. Photo by Efecto Cucuyo, used with permission.

Every January 23, Venezuela marks the anniversary of the coup d’état that ended Marcos Pérez Jiménez's military regime in 1958, in what is commonly known as “the return to democracy”. Sixty-one years later, thousands of Venezuelans who oppose the government of Nicolás Maduro are taking to the streets hoping the winds will blow the same way.

As we write this story, people are gathering in large numbers in major cities like Maracaibo, Barquisimeto, and the capital Caracas, as well as smaller towns. The rallies were called by Juan Guaidó, the new president of the country's opposition-controlled National Assembly, who earlier this month publicly denounced Maduro's legitimacy and proposed to invoke an article of the 1999 constitution that would install a transitional government with Guaidó as president.

Speaking at a protest in Caracas this afternoon, Guaidó swore himself in as the acting president of Venezuela. Soon thereafter, the United States’ president Donald Trump publicly recognized Guaidó as the country's legitimate ruler, with most governments in the region — such as Canada, Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador — as well as the Organization of American States, following suit (notable exceptions were Mexico and Bolivia).

On the day before, January 22, the United States’ vice president Mike Pence posted a Spanish-subtitled video on Twitter and YouTube in which he directly addressed the Venezuelan people, calling Maduro a “dictator with no legitimate claim to power.” Maduro responded by breaking diplomatic relations with the United States.

Today's events are likely the toughest challenge ever faced by Nicolás Maduro, whose popularity has been shrinking briskly in recent years in the face of economic collapse, food shortages and soaring urban violence in the country. The last time such massive protests threatened his administration was in 2017, after he effectively nullified the powers of the National Assembly. Maduro survived that revolt, which left around 163 dead over the course of several months, and went on to be sworn in for a second six-year term on January 10, 2018, following an internationally condemned snap election in which opposition parties were barred from running.

Read our special coverage: “What's happening in Venezuela?”

Since earlier this month, opposition leaders have been organizing small protests in different areas of Caracas, including in traditional bastions of chavismo. On January 22, a small squad from the Bolivarian National Guard declared themselves in rebellion against the government. The army quickly managed to quell the mutiny, but for the opposition their move sparked hope, as the military is a critical actor in Venezuelan politics and unmistakably the backbone of Maduro's government.

Four people have been killed so far in today's protests, according to independent website Efecto Cucuyo. Police have responded with tear gas and rubber bullets in parts of the Caracas, according to reports from Caroata Digital, another independent outlet, and Provea, a local human rights organization.

Meanwhile, technical experts at NetBlocks have reported major disruptions to online traffic:

Government supporters have staged much smaller demonstrations in parts of the country, while some have taken to social media with hashtags such as “The streets belong to chavismo” (#LasCallesSonDelChavismo). But both sides have been using hashtags taken from passages of Venezuela's national anthem: “Let’s shout with verve” (#GritemosConBrío); “Down with the chains” (#AbajoCadenas).

Marco Teruggi, a sociologist who works with state-owned television station Telesur, tweeted that:

Los EEUU le dieron la orden a Guaidó de autoproclamarse presidente y así lo hizo. Abrieron las puertas de un escenario que van a profundizar con altos niveles de violencia y dirán que son inocentes y demócratas. #GritemosConBrio

— Marco Teruggi (@Marco_Teruggi) January 23, 2019

The United States ordered Guaidó to proclaim himself president and he's done it. They've opened the doors for a situation that they will help deepen with high levels of violence, and they will say they are innocent and democratic. #Let’sShoutWithVerve

The outcome of the protests remains to be seen. While the opposition has arguably received its most significant vote of confidence from international leaders since the National Assembly's election in 2015, the military has shown very few signs of breaking with Maduro.

Writing on the independent news site Caracas Chronicles, well-known political analyst Francisco Toro captures the feeling of both hope and uncertainty shared by many Venezuelans, at home and abroad:

Venezuela has lived through so many calamities in the last few years, we always tend to fall into the trap of thinking it can’t get any worse. It can get much, much worse. A civil war would obviously invite international intervention, on both sides. A Caribbean Syria, layered on top of a pre-existing food crisis, could make 2018 look like the good-old-days in retrospect.
(…)
The immediate future is enormously murky, and the uncertainty, understandably, drives everybody a little bit crazy. We all rebel against the simple, obvious truth: nobody knows what comes next.
(…)
In 2014, having the security services pull the plug on the Maduro regime was a fantasy. In 2017, it was a hope. In 2019, it’s the plan.

On social media, many have noted the significance of today's date. The video below reproduces an extract of the speech given by Romulo Betancourt, the former president who returned from exile after the fall of Jiménez on January 23, 1958, and would go on to be president of the country from 1959 to 1964. In his speech, Betancourt called for national unity and defence of democracy.
