UNICEF is raising a big champaign to save the Nepal children. I am contributing to it, although I have no way to check on how they are spending my money.On the other hand, Everest climbing session will restart on May 4. They need that money.

A Milano i Black Bloc hanno rovinato la giornata dell'inaugurazione di Expo 2015. I fascisti avevano la camicia nera, questi non sono diversi.

Mio padre, capitano degli Alpini in Russia, si e' rifiutato di aderire alla Repubblica di Salo' ed e'stato perseguitato dai fascisti. E' stato salvato da un ufficiale della Wermacht cui mio padre, che parlava un buon tedesco, disse che, avendo giurato fedelta' al Re npn poteva giurare per Mussolini. Il tedesco gli diede un salvacondotto che, se fosse caduto in mano ai partigiani, l'avrebbe fatto fucilare. La vita valeva poco allora, ma i giovani non lo sanno.

Secondo Giorgio Bocca,partigiano,i partigiani hanno avuto quarantamila morti. La cifra di trecentomila morti della Repubblica Sociale e'assurda. Invece seicentomila soldati dell'Esercito, deportati in Germania dopo l'armistizio dell'8 settembre 1943, si sono rifiutati di aderire al fascismo. Molti di essi sono morti di fame e malattie.Onore al soldato italiano, abbandonato dal Re fuggito al Sud con tutta la sua corte.

Yes, Lick Observatory was to close for lack of funding due to the cost of the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea.Big fish eat small fish even in astronomy.

In the 1976 Friuli quake the Italian Army played a major role in rescue and rebuilding operations.I think that only India can help Nepal with its Army.

Reinhold Messner says that too many helicopters are used to evacuate the Everest camps while they are badly needed in villages. Climbers should descend by foot if they are not injured.But of course Everest is an income source for Nepal.

Due di loro sono morti, assieme a due altri alpinisti, e due sono i dispersi. Altri si sono salvati nella Piramide K2EV del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche a 5000 metri.

In 1975, the Community College I was attending had A computer. I can't tell you what it was. But, there was an entire department built around it.

In 1980, I had the pleasure of working with a DEC VAX 11/750, at another school. It had its own climate controlled room and was connected to a couple dozen monochrome terminals for students to use. (can you say Adventure/Colossal Cave?)

At the same time, I was playing around with a TI-58C programmable calculator ... my first personal computer, so to speak.

I played Adventure in 1981 on an Onyx computer running UNIX Version 7 on 512 kB RAM, 20 MB disk and 10 MB tape used to backup daily. Disks were 5 1/4 inches and very fragile. They were called Winchester, for some reason.

A landslide in Geneva lake could start a tsunami able to destroy both Geneva and CERN. It has happened in the past and could happen again. Nature is stronger than us.

Quattro membri del Corpo Italiano Soccorso Speleologico sono dispersi nel villaggio di Langtang sotto il Langtang Lirung (metri 7248). Nel 1982 il mio amico e cpmpagno di cordata Bruno Crepaz scomparve sul Langtang Lirung mentre scendeva per ultimo dopo che la cima era stata salita dalla squadra di punta. Spero che i quattro si salvino.

@ Tullio.
At least 18 climbers dead - many missing.

One of them is Dan Fredinburg, manager of Google Adventure, who was climbing Everest with two companions, all saved.

I am back from a vacation in Liguria.The LHC is not powered in winter because it drains electricity from the city of Geneva but now it seems to be reaching its design energy of 13 TeV.I have to read many news to learn whats has happened in the 14 days I was absent, but the main result seems to be the abundance of antiprotons discovered by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer in the ISS.This maybe a result of dark matter annihilation. This was announced by Roberto Battiston, a physicist who is now the head of the Italian Space Agency.

I was in Frascati once visiting the astronomer Paolo Maffei, but I never visited the laboratories of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, where they work also on nuclear fusion projects. Besides, there is an experimental detector of gravitational waves, of the resonating mass type. But there is also a good white wine.

E' morto a 95 anni Giorgio Salvini, fisico,ideatore del primo elettrosincrotrone di Frascati e dei successivi anelli di accumulazione ADA e ADONE, questi seguendo le idee di Bruno Touschek, fisico austriaco che collaborava con l'INFN di Frascati. Ho pubblicato due suoi articoli, uno su Scienza&Tecnica 76 di Arnoldo Mondadori,e uno su Le Scienze, rivista del Saggiatore di Alberto Mondadori.versione italiana di Scientific American, dove avrei dovuto andare a lavorare. Ma il figlio Alberto sottrasse la rivista al padre e io, dipendente di Arnoldo, andai all'Enciclopedia invece che alla rivista, dove sarei diventato giornalista e avrei guadgnato di piu', pagando anche meno il mutuo (mortgage) della casa. Cosi' va il mondo.

Chris and Julie, you are right. They don't know what they will find and this makes the search more exciting. I am taking part in it with three BOINC projects and have taken a 7 week online course from the University of Edinburgh just to learn more about it.

I used to drink it myself when my Captain brother brought me some bottle of Irish whiskey, the best in my opinion. Now he is a pensioner, like myself and I cannot afford it anymore.
