Festival dei Doni 2016

Ultimate Responsive Image Slider Plugin Powered By Weblizar

Carissimi amici,

anche il 2015 sta terminando e iniziano i preparativi per il Festival dei Doni 2016. I bambini di Vrindavana sono già impazienti di ricevere il loro pacchettino!
Come sempre, contiamo su di voi per poter distribuire quanti più doni possibile e per diffondere le immagini in allegato.
 
E quest’anno abbiamo anche un aiutino da un caro amico,  Andrea, che scrive simpatiche filastrocche (vi suggerisco caldamente di guardare  la sua originalissima pagina web www.filastrocchesumisura.it). Andrea aveva fatto volontariato presso la nostra scuola a Vrindavana e in occasione del Festival dei Doni ha scritto questo invito a partecipare alla raccolta di fondi: 
 
IL VIAGGIO DI UN SORRISO
 
Vorrei chiedere una mano
a noi, che le abbiamo piene,
rivolgendola lontano, 
a chi già ci vuole bene: 
 
ai bambini che hanno poco, 
forse neanche da mangiare, 
ma sorridono nel gioco
e hanno tanto da donare. 
 
È un sorriso che da solo
pesa più del mondo intero
e potrà prendere il volo, 
scivolare via leggero
 
e raggiungere ogni cuore
come un canto di perdono,
ricordando quanto amore
è racchiuso dentro il dono
 
del sorriso di un bambino
per cui nulla è più speciale
di un biscotto o un cappellino, 
dentro un pacco di Natale. 
 
 
Ci aiutate a diffondere la richiesta tra amici, parenti, colleghi e conoscenti e magari organizzare eventi e cene per far sì che sempre più bambini possano regalarci un sorriso?
 
Ogni pacco dono ha un valore medio di € 5. Per la donazione potete effettuare un versamento sul cc postale 40826208 intestato a Cibo per la Vita oppure un bonifico bancario indicando l’IBAN IT95K0760101600 000040826208 . Scrivete nella causale “donazione per pacchi dono”. 
(Vi ricordo che le donazioni sono detraibili dalla dichiarazione dei redditi e da quest’anno i benefici sono ancora più favorevoli :).  
Poiche’ gli avvisi di accredito non sono immediati, ci sarebbe utile conoscere via email (a questo indirizzo) l’importo della donazione, così da poter organizzare per tempo gli acquisti. 
 
Ne approfitto per inviarvi già da ora tantissimi auguri e grazie.
 
Hari Bol!

Aiuti al Nepal

Aiuti al Nepal

Carissimi amici,

non posso non aggiungermi ai numerosi appelli di aiuto che stanno arrivando da tutte le parti per dare una mano alle vittime del terremoto in Nepal.

Sono molto in ritardo con la richiesta lo so, ma sono rientrata dall’India solo da pochi giorni e io stessa ho dovuto e voluto raccogliere più informazioni possibili sulle modalità di aiuto.  Naturalmente ogni aiuto è di grande utilità.

Se conoscete l’inglese, sul sito di dandavats e su Food for Life potete trovare informazioni aggiornate, foto e modalità per inviare donazioni.

Se preferite e per facilitarvi, Cibo per la Vita puo’ fare da tramite raccogliendo le donazioni che trasferiremo immediatamente al FFL Nepal. In questo modo, anche un piccolo aiuto non vi verrà troppo gravato da commissioni bancarie e anche se non avete una carta di credito o un computer potrete offrire il vostro contributo.

La donazione puo’ essere effettuata tramite versamento su cc postale n. 40826208 intestato a Cibo per la Vita (via Osteno 8, Milano) oppure tramite bonifico (anche online naturalmente) indicando l’IBAN:  IT 95 K 07601 01600 000040826208.

Vi prego di scrivere nella causale: “donazione per Nepal” e di darmene comunicazione via email perché a volte le poste impiegano giorni prima di mandarmi l’avviso di accredito.

La donazione inviata tramite il conto in Italia può’ essere detratta dalla dichiarazione dei redditi.

Spero di sentirvi.

Grazie e cari saluti

Laptop Vpc11m1e/h

This Sony Vaio laptop VPC11M1EH may be the 1st laptop we have witnessed to make use of Intel’s brand new Core i3 mobile processor, and for that reason we couldn’t wait to benchmark it. A good general score of 77 might not really appear much, nevertheless considering that it’s equal to the speediest notebook within our recent ?00 mobile computer group test, we had been duly pleased.

More extraordinary, is that its 2.13GHz Core i3-330M may be the least pricey in the brand new range of cpus; a line which also consists of mobile Core i5 and Core i7 chips with base clock speeds around 2.66GHz. Each of the unique chips are usually dual-core and also have Hyper-Threading to boost efficiency while multitasking. The majority of cpus in the range likewise make use of Intel’s overclocking Turbo Boost technologies, which boosts clock speeds if your computer chip isn’t operating around its maximum heat range. Sadly, the entry-level Core i3 utilized in Sony Vaio VPC11M1EH does not contain this.

Intel has went to a 32nm production process for the new processors, using more compact transistor sizes, enabling the chips to be a lot more energy efficient, using a TDP of simply 35W. Intel has also included a new graphics processor on the chip, that gets rid of the demand for a devoted graphics chip plus decreases energy usage. Sony, although, has opted to make use of a devoted graphics chip in this case alternatively ?the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 ?for the reason that integrated chip is not strong enough for playing modern day 3D games.

Provided all this, its battery score of 3 hours 15 mins had been slightly unsatisfactory. However, the battery itself is not quite large and the devoted graphics chipset negates any potential gain from the processor’s onboard GPU. We have seen this like a problem when using the Sony Vaio VPC11M1EH laptop, rather than Core i3 laptops generally. That mentioned, at above three hrs, it’s even now enough http://supermariorunhackcheatsz.com/ for infrequent mobile use.

Sony’s new VPC Range is a attractive notebook computer, having a subtle two-tone style. The lid and the location above the laptop keyboard are a gentle silver colour, whilst on our design, the laptop keyboard panel and also wrist rest were finished in white. The wrist rest alone carries a glossy finish with a subtle sparkle, and it is produced of a higher quality plastic material that is comfortable to work on and also feels solidly designed.

This high quality finish and selection of intriguing materials extends throughout the whole chassis, along with attention to detail as we’d anticipate from a Vaio. As an example, the energy button carries a small LED indicator where it meets the edge of the case, so it’s nevertheless visible when the lid shut. Our only concern has been the DVD drive tray, which can be flimsy as well as loose when open; a slot drive would have been a lot more in standing using the rest of the case.

The dedicated ATI graphics card assisted the Sony Vaio VPC11M1EH reach almost 20fps within more details our CoD4 benchmark. This isn’t fast sufficient for hardcore gaming, but much less action-oriented games, like Dragon Age: Origins or Mass Effect 2 will probably function easily at reduced resolutions and with a lot more sophisticated graphics options turned off.

HD video clip will not be a problem, and there is an HDMI port for delivering to your home entertainment system. The internal audio system are relatively loud, but tinny at higher wavelengths and lack bass, so in the event you wish to get the most from movies you’d be advised to connect a good audio system.

The screen is also much less amazing as we would wished. It carries a glossy finish which will reflect overhead illumination, and also vertical viewing angles are restricted. Colours are organic and energetic, however without having LED backlighting, contrast is not as good as some screens we have witnessed recently. The backlight is not as bright as some, nevertheless it is generally even, with simply a couple of darker patches across the bottom side.

Sony used to include a good software bundle including Adobe Photoshop Elements, but that’s missing from this design. You nevertheless obtain a lot of Sony utility software, although its effectiveness is questionable, and you obtain Sony’s media center substitute, obtainable via a dedicated button above the keyboard, which is slick yet doesn’t actually add anything that Windows’ own Media Center can’t provide. Another button commences the Vaio Care help software, which provides you with access to troubleshooting, backup and recovery resources.

Sonic, Super Mario And Other Addicting Games And Christmas 2008.

Computer Gaming has really evolved big time as of late. There is now talk even of the Music Industry now no longer interested in just providing suitable soundtrack material for the games themselves, but with the latest release of Guitar Hero actually becoming more and more proactively involved in the design and implementation of the games themselves.

This is a major development and one that is certain to make waves throughout the industry and it could herald another source of major investment in the genre. OK so what about Computer Games and Christmas? What鎶?it all about?

OK, Christmas first and then Check our website an explanation about the toys later.

Christmas day or Christmastide or just plain good old Christmas is arguably the most popular of all public holidays and is celebrated on the 25th of December and marks the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. As with most things historical, the truth is actually slightly different from the fiction and due to a change in Calendar systems in the 1500鎶?from the old Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar, named after the then Pope, Pope Gregory VIII it would appear that though we celebrate Christmas day as the anniversary of Christ鎶?birth, the actual birth date may now differ slightly.

Nowadays to be brutally blunt, the holiday is all about commercialism, the purchasing of gifts and the giving of these gifts but lets not create too much of a downer on the entire season, who doesn鎶?like receiving gifts? The giving of gifts, the display of various decorations including the lighting up of lights on the Christmas tree with mistletoe etc are more representative of what Christmas actually means to us nowadays.

Also celebrated as a secular festival as well as being honoured by the worlds Christian population, the percentage of those who celebrate Christmas continues to rise. The holiday is widely celebrated around the world, including in the United States, where it is celebrated by 96% of the population. As has been mentioned the number of those worldwide celebrating Christmas has grown almost exponentially to appoint where more details for example, in the USA, it is reckoned that Christmas is celebrated by over 96% of the population.

Because gift-giving and several other aspects of the holiday involve heightened economic activity among both Christians and non-Christians, Christmas has become a major event for many retailers. To sum up, Christmas is now big business whether we like it or not and it is one of the facts of modern day life that we are going to have to get used to.

So to arguably to this years must have Computer Games and where to find them, the list is long and fulsome and to be honest it is quite a sight to see some of the older and more established names in the Industry appearing to make a comeback but perhaps they never went away.

It certainly looks that way.

Top of the share here list of comeback heroes yet again is the time honoured warhorse of the genre, Sonic the Hedgehog and his cohorts Knuckles et al. Alongside Sonic we see the re emergence of the mighty Italian Plumber Mario and his colleagues. For those a little less enlightened you could be forgiven that it was 1990 all over again but this time the technology is better.

Sonic And Friends To The Rescue!

If you thought Sonic goes about saving the world (his world, at any rate) all by himself, you thought wrong my friend. This supersonic, all blue, Hedgehog has a lot of help coming his away from his host of friends. He has made friends in all different places and even in different dimensions. He is often pitted against one character by the evil plans of Dr. Egghead but still Sonic remains friendly terms with him. With so many friends around him, it is hard to imagine how Sonic would’ve saved the day without his multitude of friends.

Tails, the golden-yellow fox with two tails is the first amongst those whom Sonic can count as friends. More than just a friend, Tails is Sonic’s best pal who often helps Sonic out of tight spots. Tails uses he uses his two tails to fly up in the air like a helicopter but it is not a continuous flight. He can only last for a short duration in flight. So he often helps out Sonic by airlifting him out of the danger zone. Tails has been known to be good at mechanical things and almost as good share this site as Dr. Eggman in certain cases. He is very admiring of Sonic and looks up to him as click this website a true blue hero.

Next comes Amy Rose Hedgehog, a pink hedgehog who loves to see Sonic as her boyfriend. Yes, our speeding, blue hero has a female admirer and the admirer is often the Damsel in distress whom Sonic ultimately goes to rescue. Egghead, like any other super villain, loves to have hostages that will surely lure our Hero into his evil lair. Amy makes for the perfect hostage in that regard who does not put up much of a fight. Sonic of course goes to rescue her and this in aggravates Amy’s crush on Sonic. Although a soft character, Amy has recently been developing an aggressive side and hence she might not be as easy to capture as before.

Knuckles, the last surviving more details member of the lost race of Echidna is a character with whom Sonic often has to fight. The fights take place mainly because Egghead deceives Knuckles and Sonic in to becoming opponents. However, they usually share a healthy rivalry and do not go at each other’s throat for any reason. Knuckles gets him name from the knuckles or spikes that are on his hands, two on each hand. Together, Sonic and Knuckles are a formidable team and they have often worked together to save their world.

Blaze the cat is a being from another dimension, which is in constant flux with Sonic’s dimension. The flux creates tears in the very fabric of time that allow for easy passage between the two dimensions. Blaze is fast but not as fast as Sonic and instead depends on her abilities as a pyrokinetic (fire manipulator) to get things done. There’s also Cream the rabbit, who is more of a kid character who loves adventure and ice-cream but is also inexperienced and immature.
