Nino, buongiorno. GALLONI: Buongiorno! MESSORA: Benvenuto su, a queste interviste volute dalla rete. GALLONI: Credo che la data dalla quale dobbiamo necessariamente partire sia il 1947, quando al Trattato di Parigi De Gasperi cede una parte della nostra sovranità, ma in cambio ottiene il riassetto di certi equilibri. MESSORA: gli Stati Uniti hanno avuto un bel ruolo in questa decisione. GALLONI: Gli Stati Uniti hanno avuto un bel ruolo perché chiaramente gli aiuti del Piano Marshall erano condizionati all’uscita dei comunisti dal governo. Ma torniamo all’industria.

(KABC) -- New stand-alone fast food restaurants have been banned from setting up shop in South Los Angeles, due to rising health concerns by the city council. How many fast food eateries does one area really need? The Los Angeles City Council thinks South Los Angeles and South East Los Angeles need new choices as these regions face an over-concentration of such restaurants. "This is not an attempt to control people as to what they can put into their mouths. Perry's new plan bans new so-called "stand alone" fast food restaurants opening within half a mile of existing restaurants. Such stand-alone establishments are on their own property, but those same restaurants are OK if they're a part of a strip mall, according to the new rules. "Give a grocery store and a housing combination a chance to come in," Perry said. Residents had mixed reactions to the new plan. "People don't need to be told what to eat or what they want to eat.

Weight Loss Advice From 1920: Does It Still Hold Up Today? By Lauren Gelman for Reader's Digest Published in the very first issue of Reader's Digest magazine, the article "How to Regulate Your Weight" is full of diet tips that are surprisingly forward-thinking -- along with others that are woefully outdated. Here, key weight-loss lessons we can all re-learn. 1920 Tip: "Each of us has an ideal weight which is perfectly easy to attain and still easier to retain." 2013 Update: The concept of a "set point" is scientifically valid, notes David Katz, M.D., founding director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center and editor in chief of the medical journal Childhood Obesity. "There is a weight range that is normal for any given body, based in part on genes and in part on weight established in childhood." It's also not necessarily easy to maintain your ideal weight, notes New York City-based nutritionist Keri Glassman, MS, RD, author of The New You and Improved Diet. 1920 Tip: "Limit your sugar to three teaspoons daily."

HEAT WAVE: THE NATION; In Chicago, Week of Swelter Leaves an Overflowing Morgue They came like a parade of death: police truck after police truck, delivering the bodies to the Cook County morgue, until finally there was no more room for the dead. Wicked heat is being blamed for hundreds of deaths across the eastern half of the country, and perhaps 300 deaths in Chicago alone, said Edmund Donoghue, the medical examiner for Cook County, where refrigerated trucks are being used to store the overflow from the morgue. "I've never seen anything like this in my life," said Dr. Donoghue. "We're overwhelmed." The temperature hovered near 100 for most of the week in Chicago, peaking at 106 degrees on Thursday, and the humidity was extremely high. Temperatures fell to the low 90's by Saturday, and were expected to moderate early in the week. Elsewhere scores of deaths were attributed to the heat wave, which brought temperatures of 109 degrees in Omaha on Wednesday, 104 in Toledo, Ohio, on Friday and 106 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on Saturday.

Even Barbara Walters is mystified by the GOP candidate who wants to outlaw oral sex in Virginia By David EdwardsMonday, July 22, 2013 14:35 EDT On Monday, hosts of ABC’s The View blasted Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli over his campaign to reinstate a “Crimes Against Nature” law that would outlaw oral and anal sex even between consenting straight couples. “What ever happened to the slogan, ‘Virginia is for lovers’?” co-host Barbara Walters wondered. “Only man-on-top lovers, that’s it,” co-host Joy Behar pointed out. “What he does is he automatically equates oral sex with homosexuality, okay,” Walters observed. “Well, then I’m as gay as a gay two dollar bill,” co-host Sherri Shepherd quipped. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg demanded that Cuccinelli prove that he had not personally “indulged” in his so-called crimes against nature. “The second thing is, why are you in my bedroom?” “So sir, you’re not going to become the governor if you stay on this track,” Goldberg promised. “Anal sex too,” Behar noted.

Hot Dog Nights JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. — Some neighbors in Jamaica Plain without a lot in common have found a way to get along. On one side of South Street live white collar professionals; on the other, low income people in a housing project. Bridging the divide are hot dogs. VOICE: Hey you guys there’s hot dogs! MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: About a dozen kids and adults line up before a folding table packed with dogs, buns, chips and sides. NATALIE TERRERO: What do you want with it? MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: Terrero says she’s been coming to these weekly cookouts every Tuesday since she can remember and now she’s old enough to help. NATALIE TERRERO: I’m helping to do the hot dog night because I would love to volunteer. MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: The South Street housing development is made up of squat three story brick buildings and concrete courtyards. But when they do, they get a hot dog and a hello from a woman with short grey hair in dreadlocks. MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: Hot dog night appears to be unique.

What's in My Meat? Walk into the grocery store into the meat aisle and you’ll be inundated by a huge amount of choices meats, different brands, different packaging, some showing just plain ‘ole labels of what’s in the package and others that specify that they are grass fed, with no growth hormones, all natural, organic… It can be overwhelming. Seeing everything laid-out before you will lead even the most informed consumer to ask, “What’s in my meat?” Meat producers regularly inject the animals with antibiotics to keep them healthy. It makes them gain weight and prevents them from getting sick but according to it is also “contributing to the evolution of drug-resistant bacteria, including strains that can infect humans.” The result of this practice is that antibiotics are becoming less-effective and the bacteria that cause illness are no longer affected by the antibiotics previously used to treat them; one example is multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
