There we go with the grand finale of my interview upon Iran, taken from the web-radio programme Siee, Giuee, Accaso (in Italian). This time we’ll talk about transportation, neighbour countries and much, much more!
Here below the second part of my interview upon Iran, taken from the web-radio programme Siee, Giuee, Accaso. Still in Eyetie language, apologies to the non-Italian speakers… or a good way to learn it?
Here we go with the first part of a web-radio programme (Siee, Giuee, Accaso) in which I was interviewed about my journey to Iran (the interview is in Italian, sorry)
Better to come about Persia
There has been a lot of moaning about the bill on publications announced by the Italian Government (no English there, sorry) on requiring any blog and Internet journal (in law language, “any website with a purpose of information, education, dissemination or entertainment“, Art. 2, Par. 1 of the above mentioned law) to subscribe to a national register (Art. 6 and 7 of the same law), as well as to name an editor in chief responsible for the information published.
But mind the language signs:
Learn more about the gorgia!
Let’s keep up this documentary trend!
- Last Party 2000 (US, 2001): a documentary featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman hitting the road and watching what’s going on in the months before the American elections of year 2000 (Al Gore vs. Bush). Many interesting things: seeing the film after seven years gave me the picture that is has been a loooong time ago and the world has really changed. People claiming that Al Gore is not a friend of the environment. Then you see a Michael Moore strongly supporting Ralph Nader, the independent candidate. Still about Moore: he has good points in his films, but in his later productions it seems to me he has become more and more biased as money flows more and more in his pockets. It’s nice to see Hoffman leading this documentary unpretentiously, that is, just trying to understand why things are going so crazy on the other side of the Ocean.
[lang_it]Ecco la ricetta del limoncello, il liquore “sudista” italiano, così come suggerita dal babbo Paolo.
- 1 l di alcool etilico
- 4-6 bucce di limone (dipende dalle dimensioni dei limoni)
- 1,5 l di acqua
- 1 kg di zucchero
Si toglie la pelle dei limoni (la buccia sottile senza il bianco) e si mette a macerare nell’alcool puro versato in un recipiente chiuso per circa 10-12 giorni, quindi si filtra l’alcool, ottenendo il concentrato del limoncello.
Scaldare quindi l’acqua e scioglierci lo zucchero.
Dopo aver lasciato raffreddare la mistura acqua e zucchero, versarci il concentrato e mescolare, quindi imbottigliare. La bevanda è pronta. Salute!
Nota: utilizzando più o meno acqua si può cambiare la gradazione del limoncello.[/lang_it][lang_fi]Tässä limoncellon (etelä-italialainen jälkiruokalikööri) valmisteluohjeet niin, kuin iskäni Paolo minulle kertoi.
- 1 litra pirtua
- sitruunakuorta (4-6 sitruuna koosta riippuen)
- 1,5 litraa vettä
- 1 kilo sokeria
Laitetaan pirtua lasi- tai muovitölkkiin, ja sinne lisätään sitruunan kuorta (pelkästään ulkokuorta, eli keltäinen ohut osa, ilman sisäistä valkoista).
Suljetaan tölkki ja odotetaan 10-12 päivää, sitten siivilöidään se (esim. teesihdillä)
Lämmitetään vettä niin kauan, kuin pystyy sulattamaan siihen sokeria.
Annetaan veden ja sokerin sekoitus jäähdyttää ja sitten sekoitetaan pirtun kanssa. Pulloitetaan. Juoma on valmis. Kippis!
Huom.: veden määrä voi olla vähemmän tai enemmän, liköörin vahvuuden mukaisesti.
Limoncello maistuu parhaiten kylmänä.[/lang_fi][lang_en]Here comes a recipe to prepare limoncello, a Southern Italian dessert liquor, as my dad Paolo told me.
- 1 litre of pure alcohol
- lemon rind (4-6 lemons depending on their size)
- 1,5 litre of water
- 1 kg of sugar
Put the alcohol in a glass or plastic jar, and add the lemon rind (just the yellow part, without the white internal part).
Close the jar and wait for 10-12 days, then filter the concentrate (e.g. with a tea strainer).
Heat up the water and mix the sugar in it in order to have it completely melted.
Cool down the mixture and add the concentrate to it stirring all the time. Bottle it. You’re done: cheers!
Note: The quantity of water can be more or less depending on the alcoholic strength you want to get.
Limoncello tastes best if really cold.[/lang_en]
Now it’s time for a documentary that was shown tonight on YLE2:
- Bloody Cartoons: what happened after the cartoons depicting the Islamic prophet Muhammad were published on a Danish newspaper? This documentary is based on the journey of a Danish journalist in several countries in Europe and the Middle East, interviewing the key people involved in the aftermath of the publication, and mainly trying to find an answer to the question: were the riots spontaneous, or was is a scapegoat to just inflaming the rage of Islamic extremists? And furthermore, is it really forbidden to depict the face of Muhammad in the Islamic culture?
I wish these documentaries could have a better marketing, but I’m afraid a few people will have the chance to see it.
However, I hope Why Democracy? (the documentary series, which Bloody Cartoons belongs to) will have a broader audience thanks to the interesting issues that are taken into consideration.
No, I don’t get money for this advertisement
