Manuela loves Portuguese...

... and I love Amy. This is Amy with subtitles in Portuguese

(and talking about Portugal, I love Mourinho too!)

Power of Silence

this is what I've learnt today:

Silence heals
it is not a weakness as we think

Silence is a strong weapon

I know silence is a gift.

if you are troubled take a moment and reflect in silence and you will be healed.

Support Google hard line towards arrogant China

Unheard before in History, a Company might be about to stand up against censorship, with a little help by Mrs Hillary Clinton.
Unheard before by a liberal socialist, we are with the Company: GO ON, SHUT DOWN OPERATIONS IN CHINA.
We are with you, Mountain View, Do the right thing, we'll always be with you if do such a courageus thing

Italian lesson #3...

... with Irene Grandi and her current top hit (as usual with lyrics)...

update: APOLOGIES!, the following one does not seem to work. I'll fix the problem as soon as I'm back on broadband at home later on tonight. In the meantime enjoy the second video down below, which works greatly!

update 2: found a video by Irene with good lyrics: just pay attention that the "nè" is wrong: it's the only letter in Italian that we have different accent: it should be "é" in this case. all other accents are OK: à, è, ì, ò, ù

... and Irene again with her greatest success (subject to review when I check the audio on broadband later on), the "tormentone" Bruci la città

both songs subject to review in order to find better audio versions, which I'll do in a couple of days as soon as I get onto a better connection (I'm travelling right now). see you soon with Italian lesson #4 !
