1. #Italy – #health #system 3rd best worldwide?

punto principale: il modello adottato da Bloomberg (secondo l’articolo): ” Come incidono i tre parametri su cui Bloomberg si basa per dare il suo voto? Se il massimo è 100, 60 punti vanno alla speranza di vita, 30 al costo della sanità in percentuale sul Pil e 10 al costo pro capite per l’assistenza sanitaria”

e giustamente l’articolo mette l’accento sul primo fattore che incide: alimentazione 🙂

ma val la pena di leggere anche il resto dell’articolo 😉

2. the largest #water #reservoir from #Ancient #Rome

while digging for a new underground line, a discovery worth studying- including to see how agriculture developed 🙂

3. recurring history and current scandals #Rome

reading details about messages, connections, exchanges, etc about the current scandal in #Rome reminds me what I read within a #book about another scandal- that happened more than a century ago
