Nel torbido si pesca meglio

Pare che la parola d’ordine di alcune liste nelle prossime elezioni amministrative di Buscate sia "trasversalità": le due liste civiche capeggiate da Fabio Merlotti e Francesca Pagnutti vanno dicendo che hanno dentro candidati sia di centro-destra che di centro-sinistra e portano come un "trofeo" in particolare i candidati che secondo loro si rifanno al PD. Sappiamo tutti chi sono gli iscritti Continua a leggere

Computer Science Education for All Students

Posted by Maggie Johnson, Director of Education and University Relations

(Cross-posted on the Google for Education Blog)

Computer science education is a pathway to innovation, to creativity, and to exciting career prospects. No longer considered an optional skill, CS is quickly becoming a “new basic”, foundational for learning. In order for our students to be equipped for the world of tomorrow, we need to provide them with access to computer science education today.

At Google, we believe that all students deserve these opportunities. Today we join some of America’s leading companies, governors, and educators to support an open letter to Congress, asking for funding to provide every student in every school the opportunity to learn computer science. Google has long been committed to developing programs, resources, tools and community partnerships that make computer science engaging and accessible for all students.

We are strengthening that commitment today by announcing an additional investment of $10 million towards computer science education for 2017, along with the $23.5 million that we have allocated for 2016. This funding will allow us to build more resources, scale our programs, and provide additional support to our partners, with a goal of reaching an additional 5 million students.

With Congress’ help, we can ensure that every child has access to computer science education. Please join us by signing our online petition at www.change.org/computerscience.

Le liste a Buscate per le elezioni amministrative

Dunque pare proprio che le liste a Buscate per le elezioni amministrative siano quattro. La prima ad uscire allo scoperto è stata "Buscate possibile" la Lista Civica che propone come candidato Sindaco Guglielmo Gaviani. E’ l’unica lista di ispirazione di centro-sinistra anche se si rivolge ad un elettorato (sopratutto giovanile) che da tempo non si riconosce nelle categorie classiche di sinistra Continua a leggere

Raduno di Primavera


Domenica 24 Aprile, come per tutti i ponti e le festività ovviamente il meteo non è mai dalla parte del biker. Sono le 9.30 e ci troviamo sul molo di Portoferraio dove iniziamo a raccogliere le prime iscrizioni per il nostro raduno primaverile. 
Le previsioni non sono incoraggianti ed una leggera pioggerillina accoglie i primi partecipanti appena sbarcati.
Alle 10.30 inizia puntualmente il giro ed alla fine contiamo più di 60 partecipanti provenienti sopratutto dalla costa ma c’è presente un bel gruppo di vicentini portato anche dagli amici di 365.

Una volta partiti ci dirigiamo in direzione Antiche Saline per proseguire verso le terme di San Giovanni, dove un suggestivo passaggio sull’acqua ci conduce alle pendici delle Grotte dove è presente un antica villa Romana.

Attraversata la provinciale saliamo in quota costeggiando monte Orello sino a portarci in zona Acquabona.

Pedalando sulla salita del Buraccio, ci portiamo sul trail del Cinghiale Azzurro appena ripristinato per l’occasione.



Una volta terminato questo trail, caratterizzato da sali scendi dentro e fuori dal bosco, arriviamo sulla provinciale del Volterraio che dopo un breve tratto di asfalto ci condurrà alla meritata merenda di metà giro.


Una volta rifocillati si riparte per affrontare la discesa delle Scalette, perfettamente ripristinata dai ragazzi dell’Elba Gravity Park.


Una bellissima discesa molto panoramica, la prima parte è caratterizzata da un terreno più compatto e flow mentre la parte bassa è quella più insidiosa con lo scoglio che affiora e rende più avvincente il trail.

Una volta terminate le scalette continuiamo il giro che ormai volge al termine, rimangono infatti gli ultimi due single track curati dai residenti della zona: Federico e Mattia. Entrambi divertentissimi, molto flow super guidati fra lecci e bunker della Grande Guerra.

  
Terminato il giro finalmente il meritato ristoro con molte prelibatezze preparate dai nostri supporter. 
Vogliamo ringraziare tutti i partecipanti che nonostante le condizioni meteo non si sono tirati indietro, i supporter: famiglia Corsiper la logistica, Moby per la convenzione traghetti ed infine i ragazzi dell’Elba Gravity Park per il ripristino tempestivo delle Scalette.

Official Photos of MAFEX Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Knightmare Batman Figure!

Even way before we got our first look at the feature-length superhero showdown that is “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” there was a huge amount of chatter and speculation circling about the “Knightmare” dream sequence that shows a captured Batman (Ben Affleck) and a pretty scary looking Man of Steel (Henry Cavill). The footage provided us with a glimpse into a terrible dystopian future, a world swarming with Darkseid’s Parademons and the Omega brand burned into the ground as Batman stands above a ruined city (presumably either Gotham or Metropolis).

MAFEX Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Knightmare Batman Figure stands about 6.3-inch tall, has 20 points of articulation, includes masked and unmasked head sculpts, a rifle, a pistol along with binoculars. It will retail for 5,800 Yen or $52.00 U.S., and hits the shelves December 2016. These preview pictures give us a better look at Knightmare Batman, his outfit and weapons seen in the film.
