Science, 2021; 374 (6572): 1275 DOI: 10.1126/science.abi4355

The findings provide clarity about the role the icy waters surrounding Antarctica play in buffering the impact of increasing greenhouse gas emissions, after research published in recent years suggested the Southern Ocean might be less of a sink than previously thought.

The new study, published this week in the journal Science, makes use of observations from research aircraft flown during three field projects over nearly a decade, as well as a collection of atmospheric models, to determine that the Southern Ocean takes up significantly more carbon than it releases. The research also highlights the power that airborne observations have to reveal critical patterns in the global carbon cycle.

?You can?t fool the atmosphere,? said NCAR scientist Matthew Long, the paper?s lead author. ?While measurements taken from the ocean surface and from land are important, they are too sparse to provide a reliable picture of air-sea carbon flux. The atmosphere, however, can integrate fluxes over large expanses. Airborne measurements show a drawdown of CO2 in the lower atmosphere over the Southern Ocean surface in summer, indicating carbon uptake by the ocean.?

The research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which is NCAR?s sponsor, as well as by NASA and NOAA.

Uncertainty about the role of the Southern Ocean

Once human-produced emissions of CO2 ? from burning fossil fuels and other activities ? enter the atmosphere, some of the gas is taken up by plants and some is absorbed into the ocean. While the overall concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere continues to increase, causing the global temperature to rise, these land and ocean ?sinks? slow the effect.

A more precise understanding of where carbon sinks exist, how big they are, and how they may be changing as society continues to emit more CO2 is crucial to projecting the future trajectory of climate change. It is also necessary for evaluating the impact of potential emission reduction measures and CO2 removal technologies.

Scientists have long thought that the Southern Ocean is an important carbon sink. In the region around Antarctica, cold water from the deep ocean is transported to the surface. This upwelling water may not have seen the surface of the ocean for hundreds of years ? but once in contact with the atmosphere, it?s able to absorb CO2 before sinking again.

Measurements of CO2 and related properties in the ocean suggest that 40 percent of all human-produced CO2 now stored in the ocean was originally taken up by the Southern Ocean. But measuring the actual flux at the surface ? the back and forth exchange of CO2 between the water and the overlying air throughout a year ? has been challenging.

In recent years, scientists have used observations of pH taken from autonomous floats deployed in the Southern Ocean to infer information about air-sea carbon flux. The results of those efforts suggested that the carbon sink in the Southern Ocean might be much smaller than previously thought. The possibility that the prevailing understanding of the role the Southern Ocean plays in the carbon cycle might be wrong generated a lot of discussion within the scientific community and left unanswered questions, including where the excess CO2 is going if not into the Southern Ocean. Could there be a significant sink on land or elsewhere in the global oceans that scientists have missed?

The value of atmospheric measurements

In the new study, the research team sought to address the uncertainty by looking at carbon in the air instead of in the water. The atmosphere and the ocean exist in balance, and they are constantly exchanging CO2, oxygen, and other gases with each other.

The research team pieced together airborne measurements from three different field projects with deployments stretching over nearly a decade: the HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations (HIPPO) project, the O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean (ORCAS) study, and the Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) mission.

While there are also surface monitoring stations that measure CO2 in the atmosphere over the Southern Ocean, these stations are relatively few and far between, making it difficult to characterize what is happening across the entire region.

?The atmospheric CO2 signals over the Southern Ocean are small and challenging to measure, especially from surface stations using different instruments run by different laboratories,? said NCAR scientist Britton Stephens, a co-author of the study who co-led or participated in all of the field campaigns. ?But with the suite of high-performance instrumentation we flew, the signals were striking and unequivocal.?

Critically, the data from the aircraft campaigns captured the vertical CO2 gradient. For example, during the NSF-funded ORCAS field campaign, which took place in January and February 2016, Stephens, Long, and other scientists on board the NSF/NCAR HIAPER Gulfstream V research aircraft could see a decrease in CO2 concentrations on their instruments as the plane descended.

?Every time the GV dipped near the surface, turbulence increased ? indicating the air was in contact with the ocean ? at precisely the moment when all the CO2 instruments registered a drop in concentrations,? Stephens said. ?You could feel it.?

The new study finds that this gradient is quite sensitive to the air-sea carbon flux, offering researchers an unprecedented opportunity to characterize the Southern Ocean?s carbon uptake.

?We needed observations that included both intensive surveys at a particular time of the year and that spanned the seasonal cycle,? Long said. ?That was the motivation for combining multiple aircraft campaigns that span roughly a decade. We were able to aggregate them together to assess the mean seasonal cycle of CO2 variability in the atmosphere.?

After piecing together how CO2 typically varies in the atmosphere at a particular time of the year, the research team turned to a suite of atmospheric models to help them translate their atmospheric profiles into an estimate of how much CO2 the ocean was soaking up or releasing. Their conclusion was that the Southern Ocean takes in significantly more carbon in the summer than it loses during the winter, absorbing a whopping 2 billion tons of CO2 over the course of a year. In the summer, blooms of photosynthetic algae, or phytoplankton, play a key role in driving CO2 uptake into the ocean.

The research team noted that a regular program of future airborne observations over the Southern Ocean could also help scientists understand whether the area?s capacity to continue taking up carbon may change in the future. A similar measurement strategy could yield important information in other regions of the globe too.

?We?ve really seen that these observations are hugely powerful,? Long said. ?Future aircraft observations could yield extremely high scientific value for the investment. It?s critical that we have a finger on the pulse of the carbon cycle as we enter a period when global society is taking action to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere. These observations can help us do just that.?

Welsh actor Anthony Hopkins stars alongside Olivia Colman in “The Father”, a film in which he plays an old man dealing with progressive memory loss caused by senile dementia. In the French film Florian Zeller, which opens this Thursday in Rosario, Hopkins’ character claims his independence while his memories and the faces of those around him become blurred and even the most mundane daily activities are transformed into odyssey.

For this work, Hopkins won the Oscar for best actor in April. It was Hopkins’ second Academy Award, after his Hannibal Lecter award for “The Silence of the Innocents” (1991), which made him, at 83, the oldest man to win the statuette at the history of this category. The film, the film adaptation of a Zeller play that debuted on the big screen, also won the award for best adapted screenplay, among 24 other international awards and 131 nominations at film festivals around the world.

The Father (2021) | Official Subtitled Trailer | Anthony Hopkins

In his first film, Zeller addresses senile dementia, a condition that over time becomes more difficult for those who suffer from it and those around them. Because, the director puts in white on black the hard decisions that everyone must make to continue with their lives. For this reason, the director and playwright explained that he wanted to make the text “an experience” for the viewer rather than a film.

“” The father “was first a play, I wrote it ten years ago, and I wanted to do everything except film a play,” he said.. ?I wanted to do something cinematic, something that could only be done on film. And when you start to think about that adaptation from theater to cinema, your first ideas are about writing outdoors, taking advantage of the fact that you can do things outside. I made the opposite decision. The one to stay in that space to make that a mental space and I wanted to convey this in a cinematographic way. That was the total challenge of this film “.

Zeller assured that he transformed the space that Anthony inhabits – Hopkins shares his real name with that of his character – into another member of the team. ?When I started to write the script, I made a design of the apartment, as if it were one of the main characters and I decided very early to shoot in a studio, because it allows you to do whatever you want: remove a wall, change proportions and colors, and play with the furniture. I wanted to use all of those possibilities to play on the audience’s sense of disorientation. Take the set as if it were a maze, not as a way to provide a background for the characters. It was about telling the story through the set and the metamorphosis of the set ?.

Hopkins with director Florian Zeller, who made his film debut with the film.

In that sense, he added: ?I wanted ‘The Father’ to be not just a story, but also an experience. The experience of what it can be like to lose everything, including your own logic, as a spectator. I wanted to put the audience in that unique position of navigating that maze and questioning everything and playing with all the pieces of the puzzle. Lead her to try to find meanings in it, to try to make it combine well. Because it’s about doubting what is true and what is not, as if, in a way, you experience dementia, as if you were in Anthony’s mind. The challenge of this film is to tell the story of dementia from within. Not from the outside and stay in a friendly and moving movie. I wanted to do something more demanding, more raw, like a real experience ?.

The subject of the film is hard, but according to Zeller, he tried to make the story go from everyday life to drama, thriller and humor. And that, he said, only Hopkins could do correctly. ?I just wanted the audience to think after three minutes, okay, I get it, this is about senile dementia and we’re in the head of the main character. That is why the film opens towards a different tone, which borders on the thriller, and Anthony Hopkins is the best vehicle for these sensations, since he is the master of anxiety, of uncertainty. He is like a red herring where the film enters a territory of anguish to evolve towards several different emotions until it reaches the most intimate and psychological drama of this character who fights against senile dementia. And in that trajectory, I tried to explore different facets, sometimes including humor because in the loss of references there are also funny situations ?.

Hopkins thanked the Academy Award via video and from Wales.

Regarding his first experience in cinema, the director appreciated that it has been agreed with two interpreters such as Hopkins and Olivia Colman. ?Directing movies is a magnificent and intense adventure. For me, Anthony Hopkins is the best actor alive. The way he gave himself to this film, his bravery, as it is rare for an 83-year-old actor to decide to play a character opposite to what he has done so far, without any reservation, without any networkWith exceptional generosity, I was very impressed by that. And see also Olivia Colman, who is one of the most human, purest and brightest actresses I know. It was magical having the opportunity to work with them ?.

For his part, Hopkins confessed that filming “The Father” confronted him with his reality and his own fears. ?Working on this movie has focused my mind on my own mortality. In a way, I half-feel that I could avoid getting dementia by doing so. We had a lot of fun on set trying to memorize Florian’s conversational style of dialogue. Somehow, by the time the cameras were on me, I didn’t require acting. “

The acclaimed interpreter accepted that at 83 he was lucky enough to ?Survive beyond the age my father was when he died. I think I understood Anthony, my character, from the beginning, in a way it was like playing my father “, he assured.

Meanwhile, Olivia Colman said the film confronted her with her own story. ?My mother was a nurse specialized in geriatric care, when I was a child I saw her with her patients. My parents are still young enough to take care of themselves, and the roles have yet to be reversed. But I saw my mother taking care of my grandmother, so it won’t be long before I have to step forward. “said the actress.

X FACTOR 2021, THE CHRONICLE OF THE SEMIFINAL

00.10 The live broadcast of X Factor 2021 ends here. Appointment on Thursday 9 December with the final as always on Leggo.it. Thanks for joining us

23.52 Agnelli: “The TV expelled him like a pimple as always happens, I expected the table to recognize him and defend him beyond the match”. Emma: «The first one who had to protect him had to be you. In the fourth episode you mentioned his name and now don’t appeal to us. I have exalted his courageous choices and protected him ». Manuel attacks Emma: “You are not the protagonist of my thoughts,” Brown calls him rude.

23.45 The debate starts at the table during the hot factor. Manuel: «It was a failure for me, the broadcast and the whole table in particular. It was a sensitivity that needed to be protected. He remained introverted and as usual it didn’t work on TV, but I don’t want to compare with Baltimore who deserved the final.

Mika: «You are very good and you were the first to involve the public, I hope you can do it again next week. You’ve been almost too good. ” Manuelito: “I am very happy, in my opinion Mika is a bit confused first he tells you that you have to find a balance, then no, but I am very happy because you have made giant progress”

23.52 Agnelli: “The TV expelled him like a pimple as always happens, I expected the table to recognize him and defend him beyond the match”. Emma: «The first one who had to protect him had to be you. In the fourth episode you mentioned his name and now don’t appeal to us. I have exalted his courageous choices and protected him ». Manuel attacks Emma: “You are not the protagonist of my thoughts,” Brown calls him rude.

23.45 The debate starts at the table during the hot factor. Manuel: «It was a failure for me, the broadcast and the whole table in particular. It was a sensitivity that needed to be protected. He remained introverted and as usual it didn’t work on TV, but I don’t want to compare with Baltimore who deserved the final. I want to focus on the character Erio, his was a path that had never been seen in here. “. Mika: «I made a conscious decision and I don’t agree with the failure».

Where it all began: the Maneskins return home and Thursday 9 December they will be back on stage for the final of X Factor 2021 as super guests almost obscuring the participation of Coldplay. It was 2017 when, against all odds, the Roman band lost against Lorenzo Licitra by finishing second.

Four years later Victoria (bass), Damiano (vocals), Thomas (guitar) and Ethan (drums) return to that stage after winning the impossible: They currently have over 3.7 billion streams on all digital platforms and more than 38 million monthly Spotify listeners. After the success of the album “Il ballo della vita” (released on 26 October 2018), which was followed by a long tour throughout Europe and in the main Italian clubs and festivals, on 30 October 2020 Måneskin release the new single “VENT ‘YEARS”. They win the 71st edition of the Sanremo Festival with the song “QUIET AND BUY” and triumph at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, winning first place, with an international success consecrated in a few weeks by numerous gold and platinum records collected in over 15 countries in the world. On March 19, 2021 the second album “Teatro d’ira – Vol. I” will be released, followed by a sold out tour in one hour (organized and produced by Vivo Concerti) in the main European cities, as well as a tour in the Italian palazzetti scheduled for 2022, to then culminate with an event concert at the Circus Maximus on 9 July 2022. On 15 July 2021 they present the video clip of “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” with a world premiere on YouTube, obtaining 6.7 million in just 24 hours views, finishing trending in 67 countries and ranking # 20 in the world rankings of the best artists. The song also boasts a stunning version in collaboration with rock legend Iggy Pop, released on August 6, 2021, and was certified gold in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on November 29. Måneskin distinguished themselves with other amazing records, conquering the # 1 position of Spotify’s Top 50 Global Chart with “Beggin ‘”, a song that together with “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” was also classified in the Uk Singles Charts – respectively in position # 10 and # 6 – thus confirming the band as the first Italian group in history with two singles simultaneously in the British Top Ten. On September 25, they headline along with Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran at the Global Citizen Live 2021 event from Paris. On October 8, the new single “MAMMAMIA” is released, debuting at # 24 on the Spotify Global Charts, the highest debut in the charts among the new releases and the highest ever for the band. In the fall of 2021 they fly to the United States for two special shows in New York and Los Angeles, preceded by the American television debut at the iconic Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. On November 6 they play as a special guest at the Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas and on November 8 they are guests on the popular talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The band gets the “Best Rock” award at the MTV EMAs 2021, the first victory of an Italian artist in an international category, as well as a nomination for the American Music Awards 2021 as “Favorite Trending Song” with “Beggin ‘”. By taking # 1 on the US Rock Airplay chart, the song marks the fastest rise for a new band to number one in US Alternative Airplay in the past 24 years. They receive the prestigious invitation from the Academy to the Grammy museum to read the nominations of the 64th edition. After a year of success, with 6 diamond discs, 133 platinum and 34 gold, Måneskin are the most listened to Italian artists in the world on Spotify.

On Thursday (02.12.2021) Politicians agreed that indoor sporting events should only have an occupancy rate of 30 to 50 percent. A maximum of 5,000 fans are allowed in one hall. In addition, there should be a mask requirement at the seat and the 2G regulation should apply – so access only for vaccinated and convalescent people.

Stefan Holz told the Sportschau as managing director of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) that the league with the resolutions “can already live on paper“. Especially since there was a nationwide arrangement of ghost games in the room.two big buts“.

“30 percent can probably not be used up at all”

The first is the “2G Plus scheme that will be difficult“. Entry into the halls is only granted to fully vaccinated or recovered spectators who also have to prove a current negative corona test.

Since the test capacities are currently being used to full capacity, this would prevent or discourage the visit. “This will mean that the 30 percent will probably not be exhausted at all“, so wood.

The second “but” is the announcement of the state governments in Saxony, Baden-Wuerttemberg and Bavaria, which have either already ordered or at least announced ghost games. Nine of the 18 BBL clubs are thus affected. “In fact, half the league has ghost games“Wood railed.

“The worst are unclear framework conditions”

That hit the clubs harder than last season, because at that time the lack of audience income had already been calculated. Also have it “generous state aid“given.”So it turned out well and all clubs got through the season.”

It is difficult at the moment because nobody knows when the fans are likely to return in large numbers. Therefore, suspending the season is also out of the question. Wood: “The worst thing there is for an economic company are unclear framework conditions.”

Bohmann speaks of “symbolism” and “a lot of actionism”

The complete exclusion of fans in at least three federal states is also a thorn in the side of Frank Bohmann. “I doubt the proportionality“, said the boss of the handball Bundesliga of the Sportschau. Not sport, not even indoor sport, was an infection driver, but schools and local public transport, for example.

It will “Symbol politics“operated, Bohmann accused the executives, the pictures of the full football stadium in Cologne on the 13th matchday of the Bundesliga would certainly have contributed to this.”So that’s a lot of activism“, said Bohmann, who also ruled out a break for his league.

The managing director emphasized that HBL had come through the season quite well so far, also because “more than 99.5 percent“the professionals are vaccinated. Because many clubs have also started vaccination campaigns, he said:”We have done our part.

Indoor sports depending on ticket receipts

In handball, ice hockey or basketball, many clubs are significantly more dependent on audience income than in football, which lives primarily from the income from the sale of media rights.

With 2G-Plus, from an economic point of view, it is almost irrelevant whether 30 percent are approved or whether it is a ghost game“, calculated Stefan Holz.” But it is also important to maintain the bond with the fans. “

  1. Annalisa Polidori, Ruth F. Rowlands, Anita Zeidler, Mathieu Salanne, Henry E. Fischer, Burkhard Annighöfer, Stefan Klotz, Philip S. Salmon. Structure and dynamics of aqueous NaCl solutions at high temperatures and pressures. The Journal of Chemical Physics, 2021; 155 (19): 194506 DOI: 10.1063/5.0067166

Now a study from the University of Bath is shedding new light on the way saline solutions act in deep geological formations (known as aquifers), paving the way for further research into CO? sequestration beneath the seabed. The final aim of this work is for pipes to carry CO? from the earth?s atmosphere into these aquifers, where it will be stored harmlessly, potentially forever.

Working out how CO?-laden salty water behaves under extreme conditions in the presence of rock is important. Will it dissolve in the water and react with the rock, or will it simply bubble back to the surface at the first opportunity, like the bubbles from a bottle of cola after it has been shaken and opened?

In an ideal world, the combination of seawater and CO? under pressure will result in the formation of rock, though it is more likely that the blend will retain its liquid form. ?Providing the rock above the solution is fault-free and impermeable, the CO? will stay there,? said co-author Professor Philip Salmon, from the Department of Physics.

For the study, published in the Journal of Chemical Physics, the researchers observed saline solutions under conditions of pressure and temperatures that mimic the conditions found in deep aquifers. Their ?neutron diffraction? technique allowed them to examine saline solutions in more extreme conditions than ever before. Using this technique, they studied different isotopes (or versions) of sodium chloride, allowing new insight into the way salty water behaves under different sets of pressure and temperature conditions.

The chemistry of salty solutions mixed with CO?

Little is known about the chemistry of mixing saline solution and CO? at high pressures and temperatures. Previous experimental efforts to find answers have failed because the solution, under extreme conditions, is highly corrosive and destroys the lab equipment it?s contained within before results are yielded.

?Being able to hold these solutions without the apparatus falling to pieces was a big challenge,? said co-author Dr Anita Zeidler, also from the Department of Physics. ?We overcame them through the design of high-pressure apparatus and a judicious choice of containment materials.?

Describing the research, Professor Salmon said: ?Our experiments show that by using neutron diffraction, you can see how the salt ions and water molecules interact under quite extreme conditions of heat and pressure. Next, we?ll be attempting to dissolve carbon dioxide into the saline solutions. The results from these experiments will inform models on carbon sequestration mechanisms, with the end-goal being to find a way to safely sequester carbon dioxide in deep-sea aquifers.?

The sequestration of CO? in deep aquifers is one of the global strategies being explored for carbon capture and storage. Pilot plants have demonstrated the success of this strategy, but ramping-up the scale depends on solving some key issues, such as storage capacity. It?s therefore important for scientists to improve their knowledge of the physics and chemistry of CO? in the environment into which it is injected.

The researchers hope to find collaborators with an expertise in corrosion and corrosion resistance before they start the next phase of their project. ?We want to study saline solutions under even more extreme conditions that fully fit in with real-life conditions, and these conditions will be even more corrosive. So, we could really benefit from the input of a corrosion specialist,? said Dr Zeidler.

This work was led from Bath and benefitted from the significant contributions of two PhD students, Annalisa Polidori and Ruth Rowlands. Also collaborating were researchers from three institutions in France: Sorbonne Université, Université Paris-Saclay and Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble.

The molecular messages are sent to our brain and potentially our eyes immediately after we exercise.

The ANU team is conducting research to better understand what impact these molecular messages have on retinal health, but also the central nervous system and eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Associate Professor Riccardo Natoli, Head of Clear Vision Research at ANU, says the molecules could potentially be hijacked, recoded and ?bottled up? in a pill and taken like a vitamin.

?The beneficial messages being sent to the central nervous system during exercise are packaged up in what are known as lipid particles. We are essentially prescribing the molecular message of exercise to those who physically aren?t able to,? he said.

?We think that as you age, the ability to communicate between the muscles and the retina starts to be lost. Similar to taking supplements, maybe we can provide genetic or molecular supplementation that enables that natural biological process to continue as we age.

?Our goal is to figure out what these molecules are communicating to the body and how they?re communicating.?

New ANU research has examined existing literature into the effects of exercise on the central nervous system and eyes. Specifically, the researchers set out to discover what impact exercise has on the retina ? the light-sensing part of the eye ? and whether exercise can help maintain good eyesight as we age.

Dr Joshua Chu-Tan, also from the ANU Clear Vision Research Lab, says further research is needed to understand how these molecular signals, which are sent from the rest of the body when we exercise, actually reach our brain and eyes.

He says the team?s preliminary research into the benefits of exercise on the retina has unearthed some ?promising? results.

?We know exercise is good for our eyesight, but to what extent is still unknown. Our aim is to understand the benefits of exercise at the molecular level and how it is beneficial for the central nervous system and the retina,? Dr Chu-Tan said.

?We found the benefits of exercise extend far beyond what has traditionally been known, however this has been largely understudied in the retina, despite the retina being an extension of the brain.

?One of the main goals of doing this review was to determine what?s going on inside the body after we exercise that gives us the benefits of exercise, and why physical activity is so good for our brain and eyes.?

The futuristic therapy could one day help patients suffering from neurological diseases such as Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s.

?It?s been suggested that prescribing exercise to patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s can help improve and slow down the disease progression,? Dr Chu-Tan said.

?We know that from looking at diseases like Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s if you exercise in a particular fashion you can potentially stimulate neuronal activity.

?That hasn?t really been looked at in the retina at the level we?re thinking of. We want to understand the molecular messages that underpin the benefits of exercise.?

The researchers say the supplement would be intended only for patients who have restricted movement that renders them unable to exercise at an intensity needed to reap the rewards. It is not intended for the general public.

?We can?t possibly package all the effects of exercise into a single pill, there are too many benefits that stretch throughout the entire body beyond what we could ?prescribe? and that?s not the goal,? Dr Chu-Tan said.

Dr Chu-Tan, Tuckwell Scholar Max Kirkby and Associate Professor Natoli?s systematic review of existing literature into the benefits of exercise on the central nervous system and eyes, including the retina, is published in Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology.

A window on the world, from which to admire many different destinations and countries. It looks like this the new site turisanda.it, second step of the restyling process of the Alpitour group portals, inaugurated last spring with the release of the web address of the same name and destined to end at the beginning of 2022 with the online launch of edenviaggi.it, followed by the launch of the My Alpitour app . All in the wake of the strategic development project inNova, launched at the end of 2019 by the company to accelerate corporate change by making the group increasingly efficient, fast and competitive.

Turisanda.it therefore intends to tell a travel concept intended for the most demanding customers and looking for an engaging storytelling., in-depth and immersive, capable of portraying the different destinations, the multiple moods with which to discover the world, the numerous services offered and the most exclusive brands. The goal is to become the first point of inspiration and information for future travelers.

The offer was then designed in a simple and rational way, enclosing within itself two distinctive travel experiences: the tailor made one, with the proposals of the Turisanda 1924 and Presstour by Turisanda brands, dedicated to flexible and custom-built travel needs, as well as that goal oriented, with all the signed opportunities Made by Turisanda, among which you can choose according to your own wishes.

In short, research can now also be oriented on the basis of inspiration, in line with the distinctive approach and values ??of the brands. For each destination both traveling travel ideas (tours, cruises, travel templates) either hotels, villas or products with flight included. Through the new platform it will also be possible to book an online appointment directly with a travel designer or with a travel agent, to obtain even more in-depth and personalized advice.

Inside the site five macro-sections they also help the user to orient himself and to collect useful tips for his next trip: Destinations with the numerous destinations available and the respective descriptive pages; Explore for those looking for inspiration through other travelers’ stories, catalogs, specific interests or types of travel with the indication of the most advantageous proposals; Tailored for you with the story of the three brands (Turisanda 1924, Made and Presstour), with the related in-depth information sheets; In evidence, with particular focus on significant experiences and events relating to a specific period; Rules for traveling, which offers a useful summary of open destinations and everything you need to know to always move safely.

“Turisanda.it is the second site we have released as part of the renewal of the group’s digital platforms and is aimed at the most demanding travelers – says the chief revenue & digital officer, Paolo Meroni – The first piece of this project, alpitour.it, was released last spring, deeply improved and enriched in functionality, for a better use of users. The data confirms this change: we have recorded, in fact, a growth in the number of visits and an ever-increasing appreciation of the features. We will soon complete the circle with the release of the new My Alpitour app and the edenviaggi.it website. In the redesign of these platforms we have always had in mind an omnichannel approach that also involves travel agencies to approach the customer in a more complete and integrated way “.

Victory for Meghan Markle. The wife of the principe Harry she managed to get the better of the British media and assert her right to privacy before the courts, avoiding the hype of a possible third trial. The Court of Appeal confirmed the first instance ruling, according to which the Daily Mail is guilty of violating the right to privacy of the Duchess, publishing a personal letter from Meghan to her father.

The witness

And to say that the reputation of Meghan Markle she seemed totally compromised after the crucial testimony of Jason Knauf, the former Sussex communications officer. At the court the man had revealed how at the time the Sussexes had deliberately and regularly sought contact with journalists and even with the authors of their alleged “unauthorized” autobiography entitled Finding Freedom, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand in 2020. Kanuf’s unexpected testimony forced the Duchess to retract her statements at trial and acknowledge her involvement in the publication of the material.

Meghan’s retraction

The embarrassing turnaround of the actress, who apologized to the jury for her “forgetfulness”, had no impact on the outcome of the trial, which ultimately ended in a landslide victory for Meghan. “This is a victory not only for me, but for anyone who has ever been afraid to stand up for what is right,” Markle commented triumphantly. While this victory sets a precedent, what matters most is that we are now brave enough to reshape a tabloid industry that conditions people to be cruel and profits from the lies and pain they create. “

Some British legal experts take the opposite view, who underlined the worrying consequences of the sentence for freedom of expression: “This decision – commented the lawyer Matthew Dando – increases the concern that privacy laws allow public figures to selectively determine what can be reported about them and thus manipulate the media narrative. It is a dangerous precedent ».

Despite the opposition of public opinion and the media, with which it has never enjoyed great popularity, Meghan Markle she did not allow herself to be intimidated. “From day one (…) the accused has dealt with (the cause, ed) as a game without rules. The longer they dragged it on, the more they could distort facts and manipulate the public, making a simple case extraordinarily convoluted in order to generate more headlines and sell more newspapers, a model that rewards chaos above truth. In the nearly three years since it began, I have been patient in the face of calculated deception, intimidation and attacks. The courts have called the defendant to answer and my hope is that we all begin to do the same. Because as far as this may seem from your personal life, it is not. Tomorrow it could be you. These harmful practices don’t happen once: they are a daily failure that divides us and we all deserve better ».
