In the 1973 Science&Technology Yearbook of the Mondadori Encyclopedia of Science and Technology I published two articles on cancer therapy by particles heavier than the electron. One by dr.Kirby G. Vosburgh, Staff physicist , Princeton Particle Accelerator, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. The second by prof. David K. Bewley, Chief Physicist, Medical Research Council, Cyclotron Unit, Hammersmith Hospital, London, UK. I am glad to see that this field has proceeded.

Since an old cathodic monitor to which I had attached a Windows 10 PC failed, I ordered a LCD monitor from HP and received it in a few days. It was dead on arrival. I complained to the HP Customer support by telephone and found myself talking with a Serbian girl speaking a perfect Italian. No surprise, since a Serbian aunt of mine spoke 9 languages. This is globalization. Then I had a mail from HP saying that they will bring me a new one in two days. It was made in China. This is also globalization.

From Cassini data the daily rotation of Saturn has been determined in 10 hours, 33 minutes and 38 seconds by Christopher Mankowich, a graduate student at UC Santa Cruz. He ha used the movements in the Saturn rings, since Saturn has no visible feature on its surface. This was a missing datum for many years.

People from all the world, including Russian and Chinese, work at CERN. Arabs, Islamic people, Jews and Christians work at SESAME in Jordan. Italy has built a cafeteria where Islam people can eat Halal, Jews Kosher and the rest good Italian food and wine. It is the only place in the Middle East dedicated to peaceful research, including the analysis of Dead Sea Scrolls.

Chris, a Linac is the first part of a circular accelerator like LHC. There are Electron Storage Rings which are circular accelerators that produce X-rays at a modulated energy and also coherent X-rays. One of them is installed at Basovizza near Trieste where I worked, and one of its beam lines is used for mammography, that is searching for breast cancers. But the latest medical accelerators use heavy particles (called hadrons) and also carbon ions to treat cancers which cannot be treated by surgery, especially brain tumors. Another Electron Storage Ring is SESAME near Amman in Jordan and it is a true international institution, which gets help from CERN and the Italian Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare which provided it with magnets. Its scientific director is an Italian who came from the Elettra Synchrotron in Basovizza (Basovica in Slovene, since theCarso/Karst region is inhabited by Slovene speaking people, like Boris Pahor, 106, who is a survivor from the Garman lagers and whose books were translated first in French and only later in Italian).
I love the Carso highland, with its trees, rocks,and caves in its limestone.

Schubert Ninth Symphony played by the Mozart Orchestra at Lugano LAC. Claudio Abbado founded the Mozart orchestra. He died on January 20 2014. I have seen on TV Victoria Mullova playing Bach on her violin besides Abbado's casket at his funeral service. They had a son, who is also a musician.

Both Defense spending and Science spending spend money which I give with taxes I pay. I have the right to criticize both. In my humble opinion all nuclear warheads should be dismantled and the fissile material contained in them used as a fuel of fission reactors, which are still needed to avoid global warming until a working fusion reactor is finally built. I have read The Manchester Guardian articles which say that the cost of building the Hinkley Point fission reactor is artificially maintained high to subsidize the cost of nuclear weapons. The press is free, says the USA Constitution.

Cortina used to be Austria until 1918. Slovenia also belonged to Austria.

Particle accelerators are used to treat cancer and there is a group at CERN working on this area. My daughter, in her thesis, wrote software for a hadron medical accelerator which was to be built in Milano and then went to Pavia for political reasons, so she ended in a software house for commercial uses.

I just received the last online issue of the ":Bulletin of the atomic scientists'". The modernization program of American nuclear weapons is going to cost 1 trillion US dollars. No comment.

The Swiss TV which I read on Internet said that it was an astonishing result. Marco Schwarz is a good slalom and giant slalom skier. Probably Hirscher is right.

Italy has built two aircraft carriers, the Garibaldi and Cavour, whose decks are not long enough to launch conventional planes like F18 and F22, so the admirals insist on having the F35s in place of the Harriers they have used so far. The whole fleet of UK Harriers was bough by the US Marine Corps.

Man countries, including Italy are spending money on the F35 strikefightr, which is built to carry nuclear weapons, and is useless against terrorists who use pistols, knives, cars, and trucks. They cost about 150 million dollars each.
That money could be better spent on new particle accelerators, which don't kill anybody.
