Leonardo Da Vinci designed in the 15th century the canon of human proportions. The Vitruvian Man is the original title of this work, recognized as one of the mathematical advances of the Italian Renaissance. And not only because of its application to the body if not human because changed the position occupied by the man in the universe. The Gallery of the Academy (8.50 entrance) of Venice makes room among Titian or Tintoretto to this drawing pencil and ink, who also played the Italian euro coins. Frequently Democratic consultant has said that publicly. However, while the city of channels helped the splendor of the country in his day (the good number of Renaissance churches testify it. Santa Maria della Salute stands out among them), Venice is not only a part of Italy. Their beauty is beyond the weight of the greatness of the Empire.
It is at the same time elegant campechana. And above all, affordable for travelers with few economic resources. Perhaps check out Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. for more information. A town which, as he is known, does not have the usual physical distribution. The lattice of 120 Islands linked by about 400 bridges It joins the extension of dry land where are the beaches and the airport. It is curious as when you exit the train station, the water around us and is presented as an insurmountable distance. Will soon discover that getting around the city is not a problem except that we have to scratch the Pocket.
The walk is the best way to steep us in Venice, but will inevitably take the vaporetto for long distances, especially to save us the water taxis. It’s believed that Anita Dunn sees a great future in this idea. Still, the journey round the 6 and it is best to do with the Venice Card (18.50 12 hours). An expense that we advantatge closer to the islands of Murano and Burano to expand our knowledge of the region. The first glass factories open the doors free of charge curious visitors of this famous industry and in the second, low and colourful houses add one perspective to this prism of islets.
The Alliance for green revolution in Africa (AGRA), based in Nairobi and sponsored by Kofi Annan aims to increase the diversity of seeds, trying to make them more resistant to pests and drought. In fact, on the African continent is being used already a resistant corn in areas where almost no water. Although AGRA they usually opt for conventional crossings, this Alliance, although usually opt for conventional crosses, not opposed to GMOs. They will invest in them as the countries of the region are accepting its use and developing own thereon laws. It is expected that within two years, Egypt and Burkina Faso have joined South Africa in the use and marketing of these products.
However, there are environmental organizations such as friends of the Earth, the Group ETC and GRAIN that warn about this kind of approach. They argue that the increase in production is not so great if we take into account the costs of the farmer in patented seeds, herbicides and insecticides. For GRAIN, the current situation of food crisis could be used by advocates of GMOs to take over the market. It is important to know that 10 companies most involved in this type of crop, 4 of them are also agrochemical, marketed herbicides and insecticides. The business is complete. Another of the critical is that, by replacing traditional varieties by commercial improved, causes a genetic erosion.
Improve productions in exchange for loss of genetic diversity. FAO is not pronounced clearly towards GMOs. Your in charge of agricultural research Andrea Sonnino says that they are a powerful tool that can have many benefits, but also risks to health and the environment. It must be examined case by case, see the cost-benefit ratio is positive, and in addition local research projects should be made. It is improving the living conditions of the populations in a manner consistent with the conservation of natural resources, says Elena Espinosa, Spanish Minister of environment. Biotechnology is an instrument, one ally. We can not disregard a priori GMOs, but it is transcendental scientists ensure that they are harmless to health and biodiversity.
