Nicholas Carr - Internet ci rende stupidi? Come la rete sta cambiando il nostro cervello
Italian | 2011 | 317 pages | ISBN: 886030377X | EPUB | 0,7 MB

Ogni giorno navighiamo nel Web, passando da un sito all'altro, a caccia di notizie, documenti, video; controlliamo la nostra casella di posta elettronica, inviamo SMS e non dimentichiamo di inseguire emozioni sui social network più alla moda. La rete rende più rapido il lavoro e più stimolante il tempo libero ma, mentre usiamo a piene mani i suoi vantaggi, stiamo forse sacrificando la nostra capacità di pensare in modo approfondito? Abituati a scorrere freneticamente dati tratti dalle fonti più disparate, siamo diventati tutti superficiali? Che ci piaccia o no, la rete ci sta riprogrammando a sua immagine e somiglianza, arrivando a plasmare la nostra stessa attività cerebrale. Con stile asciutto e incisivo, lontano sia dagli entusiasmi degli adepti del cyberspazio sia dai toni apocalittici dei profeti di sventura, Nicholas Carr ci invita a riflettere su come l'uso distratto di innumerevoli frammenti di informazione finisca per farci perdere la capacità di concentrazione e ragionamento.

This suite of dances from Dardanus and Platée is an ideal introduction to Rameau. Though his operas are full of articulate use of language and are, in their own polite way, theatrically charged, French baroque opera required periodic dance interludes, which is what is included here. Unlike 19th-century French opera, the dance music in these 18th-century works is often among the most fascinating in the entire opera, full of rich, unorthodox scoring and so packed with ideas underneath the mellifluous exterior that each interlude often seems like a miniature concerto for orchestra.

By the eighteenth century, Palermo-born Alessandro Scarlatti was the most widely performed Italian composer of vocal music having written more than sixty operas and well over a hundred cantatas. The cantata, more concentrated than opera, was considered at that time as the higher artistic form. Scarlatti was extremely prolific and many of his works including cantatas still remain unrecorded.

Thirteen-time #1 national bestselling author Glenn Beck realized years ago that somewhere along the way, his four children had become more focused on Santa than the meaning of Christmas. No matter how he tried, he could not redirect their attention away from presents and elves to the manger instead.

Questa è la grande storia mai raccontata della globalizzazione. I paradisi fiscali sono infatti la faccia meno conosciuta, ma più centrale, della rete finanziaria mondiale: solo per fare un esempio, più di metà del commercio mondiale e gran parte di mutui e prestiti passano per questi luoghi, almeno "nominalmente". Ogni grande corporation vi svolge continuamente attività di routine e i suoi più grandi utilizzatori non sono certo terroristi, mafiosi o celebrità, ma banche. I paradisi fiscali hanno a che fare di norma con l'evasione: dalle leggi, dai creditori, dalle tasse, in sintesi da ogni controllo e verifica democratica; e hanno avuto un ruolo decisivo in tutti i maggiori eventi economici contemporanei, compresa la crisi attuale esplosa nel 2008, fungendo spesso da base per le lobby che hanno spinto a rimuovere i regolamenti finanziari preesistenti e a tagliare le tasse per i più ricchi in tutto il mondo…

Terpsicore (HWV)(8b) is a prologue in the form of an opéra-ballet by George Frideric Handel. Handel composed it in 1734 for a revision of his opera Il pastor fido which had first been presented in 1712. The revision of Il pastor fido with Terpsicore as the prologue was first performed on 9 November 1734 at Covent Garden theatre in London, opening Handel's first season in that newly built theatre. Terpsicore mixes dance along with solo and choral singing and was patterned after models in French operas, a particular source being Les festes grecques et romaines by Louis Fuzelier and Colin de Blamont, first presented in Paris in 1723. The work featured the celebrated French dancer Marie Sallé as well as stars of Handel's Italian operas and was a success with audiences of the day.

These works both received their first performances in Leipzig - the Magnificat in 1723 and Cantata 82 in 1727. It was in 1723 that Bach had taken up thepost of Kantor at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, having previously been Kapellmeisterto Prince Leopold in Cothen. The Magnificat was originally heard ina version in E flat major at Christmas Vespers when movements with seasonaltexts were inserted; the version included on this disc was rendered by Bach someyears later, returning to the ordinary Magnificat text in order to makethe work performable all year round. Bach's approach to the evening canticle ischaracteristically large-scale. There is no use of recitative, owing perhaps tothe poetic nature of the text: the verses have little natural hierarchy and itis appropriate that they should all be afforded extended settings. The scoringis unusually rich and includes three trumpets, two flutes, two oboes, strings,continuo, and timpani - one of the largest ensembles to be assembled at theThomaskirche in Bach's time. Bach takes a literal view of the text in which, forinstance, the full five-part choir is used to demonstrate Omnes generationes ("All generations") with soloists used for the more reflective movements. Ina typically Bachian gesture the opening material returns for Sicut erat inprincipio ("As it was in the beginning").
