Aeroporti di Roma, President Fabrizio Palenzona, the first Italian airport is once again be a star player in a unique event of international dimension. White and colored LEDs, lighting effects and projections on giant screens

At the end of the celebrations for one hundred and fifty years of Italian Unification and the fiftieth anniversary of the Leonardo da Vinci international airport, Aeroporti di Roma will host a innovative initiative that is the only one of its kind.

An extraordinary lighting project, which falls within the broader program organized by Roma “Si mette... Read More

For millennia, philosophers have debated and pondered the “meaning of life,” as though such a thing were an inherent aspect of existence. Yet it seems far more reasonable and logical to discard the question itself. Oh, life does have meaning, let’s be clear about that. It has whatever meaning we choose to give it.

In every age, in every culture, even in every sub-culture, meaning is essentially a construct. That is, what a given people in a given time decide is important, unimportant, essential or non-essential, gives rise to the meaning of life within that specific culture, and therefore... Read More

Did you know that Australia is the only nation that has fought alongside the US in every major conflict over the past century? For better or worse its true, and after Obama’s speech to the Australian parliament, it doesn’t look like things will be changing anytime soon. Listening to Obama’s speech actually gave me the creeps - the heavy patriotic tone, the chiming phrases emanating a knuckle crack to China, the newspeak about “strategy” and “close friends”…I wonder whether Aussies amongst others honestly buy this crap?

Australia and much of the Asia Pacific Region has a lot to offer... Read More

A great celebration in Gaza is anticipated, as a thousand prisoners are about to be released. Prisoners with many heads on their belts: heads of butchered children, of toddlers, of people who took the wrong turn; prisoners who planted bombs in school busses, or knifed civilians and cut their hearts out.

In return for these prisoners, a single Israeli soldier will be released. And the Arab street is rejoicing. Not only does it celebrate the release of sons and daughters. It celebrates bringing Israeli to its knees. A thousand to one, can there be a bigger victory against the empire of... Read More

Women, for long have been a buffoon puppet of the media and entertainment. As a gratifying toy, women have mainly been recognized as an object of seeking pleasure by pulling their psychological and physiological strings. Women, more often have been recognized for their physicality and least for their inner beauty. The media portrayal of women today is nothing less than an active and passive eroticization that often leads to a desire for voluptuous figures and augmentations in young girls, an accession sadly not of their intellectual and emotional self, but more often of their physical self....

The protests and upheavals throughout the Middle East are more symptomatic of people wanting a better deal, not necessarily better government, based on democracy and the rule of law.

Remember the Arabs are a timeless people to whom autocratic and theocratic rule has been a way of life for centuries. The idea of self-rule is an alien concept. The only reason it has worked so far in Iraq is because the US organized and implemented a democratic process there. The test will come after we leave.

The developed world should not place too much hope that the results of all these protests... Read More

On New Years Eve of 2009, while attending a church service at Riverside Church, I sat in front of the pulpit Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood at exactly one year before his death on April 4, 1968 to give the sermon, "Beyond Vietnam." During this sermon, in opposition to war, he called the U.S. Government "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today...look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and I say: "This is not...
