One folly follows another. After Nice, we had Munich and then Kabul. I feel a need to pray. There is a mass Catholic youth meeting im Krakov, which will be broadcast on Italian TV. I shall pray with them.

A Roman fleet, being located or found in a lake?

That thing needs a little more explanation, in my opinion.

If it became buried in the sand, or sank to the bottom of the sea, there probably is a need for archeologists in order to get the facts of this story.

Google "Lago di Nemi" and you will find a link to Museo delle navi romane.

The folly of an Iranian in Germany has reminded me of a book written about Jesus by an Iranian refugee in the USA, Reza Aslan. The title of the book is "Zealot. The life and times of Jesus of Nazareth", Random House, 2013. He sees Jesus simply as a rebel to the Roman empire, which tried and executed Him. I reviewed this book on the monthly magazine of my parish, which was soon closed, I wonder why.

Arecibo is the only planetary radar besides Goldstone capable of tracking Near Earth Objects potentially dangerous to Earth. Since NASA has the task of counting and monitoring NEOs I think NASA should maintain Arecibo in operation, maybe with a reduced program and budget.

Froome falls in a descent and has to change bicycle with Geraint Thomas.
1 Roman Bardet France
2 Joaquin "Purito" Rodriguez Spain
Froome always first, Bardet second, Aru sixth.
Froome has a wounded knee but he is optimist. Only one stage left and nobody really attacks him. Bravo Chris.

On the July 21 issue of "Nature" there is an article on the physics of bicycles. The critical parameter for the stability of a bicycle is the angle between the vertical from the forward wheel center to the ground and the steering axis. I wonder how many cyclists know this. Incidentally, the Sky team bicycles are made in Italy.

My SUN M20 Workstation has been working 24/7 since January 2008. I have only upgraded its RAM to 8 GB, the maximum allowed by the mobo, changed and upgraded its hard disk and recently installed an audio card and a graphic board, a HD 7770 to do some crunching. The PSU is always the same, although i have a spare just in case.

I was working at Mondadori Edizioni Scientifiche in Milano. My boss called me and said the "Epoca" magazine needed some able to translate the dialogue between Apollo 11 astronauts and Houston. I said I could try and I was given three secretaries that alternated typing what I was dictating. I translated 70 pages of astronautical jargon in 24 hours and it was published as an inset in "Epoca" magazine. I still have a copy.
The then Mondadori President, Giorgio Mondadori, son of founder Arnoldo Mondadori, thanked me with a letter and a 270000 lira check,with which I paid one third of a Fiat 128 car, my first car. Happy days!

One third of the Nice victims were Muslims. Nice has a very high percentage of Muslim population. Nicolas Leslie is counted among the 6 Italian victims, since he was born in Milano from an Italian mother. RIP to all.

The totally unexplained Fast Radio Bursts were found in old Parkes data and confirmed by Arecibo and Green Bank data. They are still waiting for an explanation. See the "Nature" 30 June issue.

I get every month a mail apparently coming from my mail provider which says "Prego aprire il fattura". But "fattura" in Italia in a feminine word, so the message should be "Prego aprire la fattura".

I think Garin was born in Aosta Valley, hence in Italy and later became French. He was the winner of the first Tour de France.
