Atlante - notizie dal mondo in tempo reale e lingua originale
Raccontare il mondo o leggere il mondo? La domanda non è superflua perché “conoscere” è – sovente – conoscenza scritta da altri (e non controllatia. “Leggere il mondo” vuol dire, invece, monitorare (facendo la tara di quel che si racconta) il racconto.
HOP FROG, in questo contesto, offre un nuovo servizio (naturalmente gratuito) che si innesta su quello che i maggiori Media mondiali scrivono, raccontano e su cui si legge (e si interpreta) la quotidianità. Il “motore” parte da Salerno. Un’opportunità, pertanto, per coloro che vengono a Salerno (per turismo, lavoro ed altro) ma anche per studenti (per esempio i molti Erasmus risiedenti a Salerno) ricercatori, docenti, studiosi, imprenditori etc.
Atlante, dunque, come “lente specifica” (ma non deformante) per chi da Salerno (ma non solo, naturalmente) vuole restare “al centro del fiume”. Nel flusso della quotidianità senza abituarvisi.

WASHINGTON - Der renommierte Corona-Experte Anthony Fauci geht mit der Informationspolitik der abgewählten Trump-Regierung in der Pandemie hart ins Gericht.
Der Mangel an Aufrichtigkeit habe "sehr wahrscheinlich Leben gekostet", sagte Fauci am Freitag im Nachrichtensender CNN. Es insbesondere "eindeutig nicht hilfreich" gewesen, über Dinge zu sprechen, "die medizinisch und wissenschaftlich" keinen Sinn ergeben.
Fauci war am Anfang der Corona-Krise auch häufig bei Auftritten von Präsident Donald Trump dabei, verlor dann aber massiv an Einfluss, während der Präsident die Schwere der Pandemie herunterspielte. Stattdessen fand bei Trump der Radiologe Scott Atlas Gehör, der als Befürworter einer "Herdenimmunität" mit der Ansteckung vieler Amerikaner galt. Fauci und andere Experten kritisierten diesen Ansatz scharf, und warnten, dass er zu vielen Todesfällen führen würde.
Fauci sagte zuvor bereits, es sei ein "befreiendes Gefühl", dass er unter dem neuen Präsidenten Joe Biden wieder die Wissenschaft für sich sprechen lassen könne. Der 80-jährige Fauci ist Leiter des Nationalen Instituts für Infektionskrankheiten (NIAID) und gilt als integrer Experte.© Liechtensteiner Volksblatt
IT was a Presidential inauguration like no other. Masked dignitaries mingling at a safe distance from America’s 46th President.
And when it came time for him to speak, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr addressed a physical crowd of little more than 1,000.We looked back at Donald Trump’s presidency in numbers
But it was the 330million American citizens that he needed to impress — half of whom did not vote for him, some of whom cannot stand him.
Opinion polls show that a majority of Donald Trump voters still do not accept the result of November’s election.
So to avoid any repeat of the pro-Trump violence earlier this month, 25,000 members of the national guard were drafted into Washington DC to keep any mob at bay.
In a typical act of gracelessness, the outgoing President boycotted his successor’s swearing-in.
People often talk about the “divided” nature of American politics, but the truth is this has never been worse.
The country is now divided into two camps armed not just with different sets of opinions but with different sets of facts.
And they are also actually armed, of course.
So Joe Biden had better mean what he says when he talked yesterday about unifying the nation with “renewal”, “resolve” and “hope”.TALK IS EASY, ACTIONS ARE HARD
“I will be a President for all Americans and I promise you I will fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did,” went the pitch.
But, of course, talk like that is easy. It is actually doing it that is the hard part.GettyBiden and his party can now do almost anything they want, but they should be careful[/caption] AFP or licensorsThe Democrats should make sure they do not ditch policies just because Trump favoured them[/caption]
Before yesterday’s inauguration speech he taunted Trump as “the most incompetent President in the history of the United States of America”.
He has followed up such barbs by announcing an immediate gear-change from the policies of the Trump administration.
Since Biden and his party now have control not just of the White House but also of Congress and the Senate, they can of course do almost anything they want.
But they should be careful.
Not everything Trump achieved in office was bad.
In fact many of the policies he pursued are worth holding on to. And the Democrats should make sure they do not ditch policies just because Trump favoured them.
Biden and his team have already announced that from day one they will take the US back into the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
They have also announced a repeal of the various immigrations bans he put in place.
More controversially, they look set to take the US back into the Iran nuclear agreement, a deal that allows Iran to continue re-arming while pretending it has stopped its nuclear program.
If the Biden administration goes back into that it will show it is not just vengeful but naive.ReutersTrump recognised that China is not a fair competitor[/caption]
Still, the most important question will be to see what Biden does about China.
One of the best things about the Trump administration was that, for the first time, a Western government recognised what the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is up to.
It isn’t just that Trump’s team called out the concentration camp and forced labour systems that the CCP uses inside China.
The most important question will be to see what Biden does about China.
It wasn’t just that they called out the brutal suppression in Hong Kong, or the bullying of Australia.
It was that Trump and his team recognised that China is not a fair competitor.
Trade with China is not “free trade”. It is trade with a country that — with forced labour among other devices — has undercut Western markets and stripped millions of jobs from our economies.
Many of the people who voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 did so because they were hurting from this.
They were hurting from the increased power of China as a global competitor to America.
And this year, when everybody’s economy except for China’s has slumped (due to the coronavirus) it is more important than ever that the US responds to Beijing with toughness.
In part, that should be to hold the Chinese communists accountable for the virus.AFP or licensorsThe majority of Trump voters still do not accept the result of November’s election[/caption] EPAIn order to unite America, Biden must fulfil his promise to speak for all Americans[/caption]
But it should also be because pro-China policies of the type Biden has previously backed hurt American workers.
Very few US politicians ever seemed to care about that hurt. Some on the radical Left of Biden’s party even rubbed salt into the wounds.DIVISIVE TALK
They claimed Trump supporters were all white (not true) or white supremacists (even less true).
And then they talked about “white privilege’” as though an unemployed family on the poverty line in “flyover” America has any damn privilege at all.
Biden has already joined in with this divisive talk.
Last week, announcing help for small businesses recovering from the Covid crisis, he said his administration would give “priority” to “black, Latino, Asian and Native American-owned small businesses” as well as “women-owned” companies.
This type of divisive talk is what gave Trump part of his opening five years ago. That his successor should be talking like this is a terrible sign.
In order to unite America, Biden must fulfil his promise yesterday to speak for all Americans. He must seek to understand all Americans.
And he should seek to treat people as they are — first and foremost as equal citizens, not as members of various identity groups.GettyThe key will be treating Americans as equal citizens, not as members of various identity groups[/caption] Most read in News FEELING LUCKY?

At its best, the US has been one of the greatest beacons of world democracy — a point the new President highlighted several times yesterday. Its light has flickered lately.
But it is Joe Biden’s gift to rekindle it or snuff it out.
America — and all its friends — must hope he makes the right choice. And wish him well.

THE term “woke” has been thrown around as a way to describe someone as aware, but it is also sometimes used as an insult.
But the term is not a new trend, and has been used for a number of years now. So what does woke mean?
Woke is often used to mean someone is aware of social injusticesGetty ImagesWhat does ‘woke’ mean?
According to the Oxford English Dictionary “woke” is defined as: “Originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice.”
“By the mid-20th century,” says the OED, “woke had been extended figuratively to refer to being ‘aware’ or ‘well informed’ in a political or cultural sense.”
The Urban Dictionary adds: “Being woke means being aware… knowing what’s going on in the community (related to racism and social injustice).”
To summarise: woke means a person is consciously awake.
The term of African American origin and refers to perceived awareness of issues concerning social and racial justice.
Joe Biden has been described as “woke” by a Labour MPGettyWhere does ‘woke’ come from?
The word first came into circulation in the 1800s when it simply meant the state of not being asleep.
And it started emerging in Black English at least by the 1940s, according to dictionary.com.
An “Atlantic” article from 1943 reportedly quoted a black United Mine Workers official from 1940 playing with woke in a metaphor for social justice: “Waking up is a damn sight better than going to sleep, but we’ll stay woke up longer.”
By the 1960s, woke was still used in the context of political awareness, especially regarding the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950–60s.
The term even prompted a 1962 New York Times article commenting on black slang, titled “If You’re Woke You Dig It”.
And on June 14, 1965, Martin Luther King Jr, gave a commencement address called Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution at Oberlin College.
He said: “There is nothing more tragic than to sleep through a revolution…The wind of change is blowing, and we see in our day and our age a significant development.”
He added: “The great challenge facing every individual graduating today is to remain awake through this social revolution.”
In 2008, Erykah Badu’s song ‘Master Teach’ begins “I am known to stay awake” and features the line: “I stay woke (dreams dreams).”
Woke can mean being well-informed and up to dateGETTY IMAGESWhat sparked the trend for ‘woke’ in recent years?
In 2012, unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin was shot dead in Florida by neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
The shooting sparked the Black Lives Matter movement amid a public outcry over the gunman’s controversial acquittal.
Many in the black community issued calls to “stay woke” to the discrimination and injustice black people face in the US, particularly in the form of police brutality.
Under the hashtag “#staywoke” on social media, the term took off again in 2014 after the tragic shooting of two other young, unarmed black men by police officers.
Woke has more recently been used as a term to criticise identity politics or to reference millennial “snowflake” attitudes.
GMB presenter Piers Morgan slammed “woke idiots” who are campaigning to get 1978 film Grease banned on January 3, 2021.
In light of the #metoo movement, Black Lives Matter and LGBTQIA rights and awareness, lots of viewers felt the film no longer has a place in today’s TV schedule.

Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy said in an interview with The Guardian ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration that President Biden was a “woke guy” and an inspiration for the Labour party.
The Labour MP told the paper: “Joe Biden – he’s a woke guy, he appointed an amazingly strong woman of colour who is also pro-choice as his running mate, he mentioned the trans community in his victory speech, he stood up for the Black Lives Matter protesters, he spoke out about the policing of that movement, and he’s never shied away from standing up for his values.”
Following Ms Nandy’s comments, the Prime Minister was asked by a journalist from Sky News on Wednesday, January 20: “Do you think, as some senior politicians in Britain seem to, that President Biden is woke?”
After a long pause, Mr Johnson replied “I can’t comment on that.
“What I know is that he’s a fervent believer in the transatlantic alliance and that’s a great thing.”
The Prime Minister later added: “There’s nothing wrong with being woke… I put myself in the category of people who believe that it’s important to stick up for your history, your traditions and your values, the things you believe in.”
The PMs comments later caused “being woke” to trend on Twitter as people shared Boris Johnson’s remarks.

NEW YORK - Wall Street stocks finished mostly lower Friday as investors grappled with worries over new coronavirus strains while confidence in continued fiscal and monetary stimulus supported equities. The Nasdaq edged to a fresh record, but both the Dow and S&P 500 retreated as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned a newer Covid-19 strain may be more deadly, and US President Joe Biden said fatalities in the hard-hit country are expected to exceed 600,000.
