Sisma, i vigili romani lasciano le ferie e partono verso le zone terremotate

In mattinata il primo contingente ha raggiunto le zone interessate dalle forti scosse. Adesioni su base volontaria. In molti dalle ferie hanno scelto di "arruolarsi"

001-5

Roma metterà a disposizione i propri mezzi e i propri uomini per le zone terremotate". Virginia Raggi l'aveva promesso e mentre prometteva tra i vigili già partiva la gara di solidarietà, con la "chiamata alle armi" su base volontaria per assistere le persone terremotate. Numerosissime le adesioni alla chiamata, nel solco dello spirito del Corpo, ovvero dove c'è dolore ci sono i vigili.

Questa mattina, 25 agosto, un primo contingente è partito per le zone del reatino e dell'ascolano interessate dal sisma. Il gruppo è composto da due veicoli fuoristrada, 3 veicoli ordinari e due motociclette: in totale 20 agenti che stamattina sono partite alla volta delle zone terremotate, mettendosi a disposizione della Prefettura di Rieti.

Il contingente sarà guidato dalla Vicecomandante Raffaella Modafferi che, una volta presi i primi contatti sul posto, lascerà il comando del nucleo a Stefano Napoli, dirigente del gruppo Marconi. I contingenti verranno sostituiti con cadenza settimanale. Le attività della Polizia di Roma Capitale saranno prevalentemente di ausilio alla logistica, di scorta ai convogli umanitari ed altre attività che il coordinamento locale riterrà opportuno assegnare.

Da evidenziare che a seguito della circolare di reperimento di personale diffusa mercoledì mattina dal Comando Generale a tutti i gruppi, sono pervenute da subito numerosissime adesioni che continuano ad arrivare, anche con richieste di interruzione delle ferie in corso. Non una novità per il corpo che già in occasione del sisma de L'Aquilia corse in aiuto delle popolazioni terremotate. Una sorta di riscatto "mediatico" dopo le polemiche a seguito dei fatti del capodanno 2015, quando una serie di assenze di massa catapultarono i pizzardoni romani sulla cronaca nazionale come emblema dell'assenteismo di massa.

FABIO, MORTO A 40 ANNI DOPO DUE GIORNI DI AGONIA: È STATO PUNTO DA UN INSETTO NEL SUO ORTO

miz_25001031

È morto a Lecco un uomo di 40 anni, Fabio Pozzi, che nei giorni scorsi aveva avuto uno shock anafilattico dopo essere stato punto da un insetto nell'orto in località Falghera, sopra Lecco. Sono in corso accertamenti anche per stabilire esattamente la specie dell'insetto.

Pozzi era ricoverato nel reparto di rianimazione dell'ospedale Manzoni da lunedì pomeriggio. Dopo il ricovero, il quarantenne era rimasto sempre in coma. Lunedì pomeriggio l'uomo stava lavorando nel suo orto quando è stato punto da un insetto. Era riuscito a lanciare l'allarme alla moglie con il telefonino prima di perdere i sensi.

MIA, 21 ANNI, PUGNALATA A MORTE IN AUSTRALIA AL GRIDO DI "ALLAH AKBAR"

Mia Ayliffe-​​Chung era bella, aveva 21 anni e amava viaggiare. Era partita da Wirksworth, in Inghilterra, e stava facendo il giro del mondo, quando oggi, in Australia, un uomo, francese, di 29 anni, l'ha massacrata a colpi di coltello. Urlando «Allah Akbar». Un altro uomo, anche lui inglese, di 31 anni, è stato a sua volta accoltellato, e ora è in ospedale in condizioni critiche. Secondo alcune fonti, sarebbe stato ferito perché ha tentato di salvare la ragazza. E anche un australiano di 46 anni è rimasto ferito, ma in maniera non grave. E ancora, nella foga, il francese ha accoltellato a morte anche un cane, prima di essere bloccato e arrestato dalla polizia, che ha anche recuperato il coltello usato per l'assalto. In un primo momento, è stato a sua volta ricoverato in ospedale, per ferite, non gravi, che ha subito.

Mia Ayliffe-​​Chung uccisa a 21 anni in Australia

L'aggressione è avvenuta davanti ad una trentina di persone, all'ingresso di un ostello di Home Hill, nel nord Queensland. Al momento, non risulta che l'aggressore, giunto in Australia da circa tre mesi, abbia o abbia avuto contatti con l'Isis o con gruppi jihadisti, e sembra che abbia agito da solo, ha detto il vice capo della polizia del Queensland, Steve Gollschewski. Si tratta di una vicenda, ha detto, «che non riguarda razza o religione. È un comportamento criminale individuale».

miz_25001031

Tuttavia, ha precisato, «in questa fase iniziale (delle indagini) non escludiamo alcun movente, che sia politico o criminale» e «gli investigatori considereranno anche se in questo incidente ci siano fattori mentali o abuso di droghe».

Resta il fatto che, durante l'aggressione, il francese, Smail Ayad, urlava «Allah Akbar», e anche durante le fasi del suo arresto, come documentato dalle 'bodycam' montate sulle divise degli agenti. Mia Ayliffe-​​Chung era in Australia da pochi giorni contava di rimanerci nei prossimi tre mesi, lavorando in una fattoria. Finora, nel suo profilo Facebook aveva postato selfie e foto dei suoi viaggi in Marocco, Turchia, India, Vietnam and Indonesia. i suoi amici la descrivono come «piena di energia» e «una ragazza dalla felicità contagiosa». come lei stessa ha scritto su Facebook, stava «vivendo un sogno». Ma la sua vita è stata stroncata da quella che la polizia del Queensland ha definito in un tweet «una violenza senza senso».

Il cantante d'opera ucraino Vasyl Slipak che due anni fa aveva lasciato l'Opera di Parigi per andare a combattere contro i separatisti nell'est del paese è stato ucciso da un cecchino vicino a Luhansk. La notizia è stata confermata dall'inviato di Kiev al Consiglio d'Europa, Dmytro Kuleba.

Slipak, un baritono, era originario della regione di Leopoli e si era diplomato al conservatorio Lysenko di Leopoli nel 1997. Aveva poi vinto un concorso dell'Opera di Parigi. Slipak aveva aderito alle formazioni di volontari del gruppo nazionalista di Praviy Sektor.

Barbara Goldsmith, Author of ‘Little Gloria,’ Dies at 85

By WILLIAM GRIMES

Barbara Goldsmith, a founding editor of New York magazine and the author of “Little Gloria … Happy at Last,” a best-​​selling account of the bitter 1934 custody battle over Gloria Vanderbilt, died on Sunday at her home in Manhattan. She was 85.

The cause was heart failure, family members said.

In 1974, Ms. Goldsmith was doing research at a law library for a novel about the art world, “The Straw Man,” when she chanced upon four fat volumes labeled “In the Matter of Vanderbilt.” They contained 8,000 pages of court transcripts from the custody case that pitted Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Gloria’s aunt, against the child’s mother, Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt, with a $2.5 million trust fund the glittering prize.

It was one of the great headline-​​hogging trials of the age, and Ms. Goldsmith threw herself into the subject with abandon. For the next five years, she pored over the court records and conducted more than 300 interviews in seven countries. The result was a 650-​​page whopper, published in 1980, full to bursting with scandal, betrayal, extravagance and wealth beyond the dreams of avarice.

The book, which Newsday called “moth-​​to-​​flame reading,” was turned into an NBC mini-​​series in 1982, with Angela Lansbury, Christopher Plummer and Maureen Stapleton.

Ms. Goldsmith went on to write several more well-​​received books, notably “Other Powers: The Age of Suffrage, Spiritualism and the Scandalous Victoria Woodhull” (1998), about the women’s rights advocate who in 1872 became the first woman to run for president of the United States, and “Obsessive Genius: The Inner World of Marie Curie” (2005).

Ms. Goldsmith was born Barbara Joan Lubin on May 18, 1931, in Manhattan and grew up in New Rochelle, N.Y. Her father, Joseph, was a founder of the nationwide accounting firm Eisner & Lubin and a real estate investor. Her mother, the former Evelyn Cronson, was a schoolteacher and, with her husband, a philanthropist.

After graduating from New Rochelle High School, she enrolled in Wellesley College, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English and art history in 1953.

In 1954, she married C. Gerald Goldsmith, an investment banker. The marriage ended in divorce, as did her second marriage, to the filmmaker Frank Perry, who died in 1995. Ms. Goldsmith, who also lived in East Hampton, N.Y., is survived by two sons, John and Andrew; a daughter, Alice Elgart; and six grandchildren.

After college, she worked for Art News as a critic before becoming an editor at Woman’s Home Companion. The magazine did not have an entertainment section, so she set about creating one, contributing interview-​​profiles of Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant and other stars.

Later, at Town & Country, she started a series called “The Creative Environment,” for which she interviewed important figures in the arts, including I. M. Pei, Marcel Breuer, George Balanchine and Pablo Picasso.

After being introduced to Clay Felker by Harold Hayes, the editor of Esquire, she began writing for The New York Herald Tribune, where Mr. Felker was an editor. When the newspaper went out of business in 1966, Ms. Goldsmith lent Mr. Felker $6,500 to acquire the name of its Sunday supplement, New York, which he transformed into New York magazine, with Ms. Goldsmith as one of the founding editors.

Having done Mr. Felker a good turn, she nearly scuttled his new publication with her 1968 profile of Viva, the Andy Warhol superstar. “La Dolce Viva” depicted its voluble subject as befuddled, destitute, dissolute and promiscuous. An accompanying nude photo by Diane Arbus reinforced the general impression.

Between my prose and Arbus’s photos, half the readers wanted to cancel their subscriptions, and the other half thought it was the best thing ever,” Ms. Goldsmith told The East Hampton Star in 2001.

Worried, Mr. Felker had shown the article to Tom Wolfe, his star writer. “I was standing up when I started reading — and found I was unwilling to interrupt myself long enough to sit down,” Mr. Wolfe wrote in New York magazine in 2008. He told Mr. Felker, “I don’t see how you can not run it.” Half the advertisers fled the magazine, and Mr. Felker barely survived a revolt by his investors. Mr. Wolfe included the article in “The New Journalism,” his 1973 anthology.

Ms. Goldsmith accepted a position as senior editor at Harper’s Bazaar in the early 1970s but soon left to write “The Straw Man,” a novel of intrigue and perfidy in the art world. It was her only work of fiction.

In addition to her books on Woodhull and Curie, she wrote “Johnson v. Johnson” (1987), a blow-​​by-​​blow account of the legal battle between the children of J. Seward Johnson Sr., heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceuticals fortune, and his third wife, the former Barbara Piasecka, a Polish immigrant who had been hired as a chambermaid to Mr. Johnson’s second wife. At stake was a will that left his widow, known as Basia, the bulk of Mr. Johnson’s $400 million estate.

Ms. Goldsmith became a crusader for acid-​​free paper while researching “Little Gloria.” “The books and newspapers from before 1850 were in fine shape, but some of the newer ones came apart in my hands,” she told Newsweek in 1989.

That year, responding to a lobbying campaign by Ms. Goldsmith, 2,500 authors and 40 publishers signed a declaration promising that they would, whenever possible, use acid-​​free paper for all first printings of quality hardcover trade books “in order to preserve the printed word and safeguard our cultural heritage for future generations.” At the same time, the National Endowment for the Humanities, responding to the campaign, increased its book-​​preservation budget by $20 million.

From 1987 to 2015, Ms. Goldsmith underwrote the Freedom to Write Award, given by PEN to authors facing political persecution.

In writing “Little Gloria,” the one interview Ms. Goldsmith failed to land was with Gloria Vanderbilt. She waved Ms. Goldsmith aside in a brief telephone conversation, saying that she would feel uncomfortable talking about the subject and that she intended to write her own book, which she did. “Once Upon a Time: A True Story,” appeared in 1985.

No matter, Ms. Goldsmith insisted. “I didn’t write a biography of Gloria Vanderbilt,” she told The Washington Post. “I wrote a social history about a time of opulent waste in America that will never come again, where people gave dinner parties with sand on the table and you’d dig for jewels and come up with an emerald.”

Leland Bardwell, a leading light of Irish literary scene, dies aged 94

Brian Leyden, Molly McCloskey and Evelyn Conlon pay tribute to acclaimed poet and author, a bohemian figure who also co-​​founded Irish Writers’ Co-​​operative, Cyphers and Scríobh

Martin Doyle and Cathy Dillon

Leland Bardwell, the poet and novelist, died in Sligo yesterday. She was 94. A member of Aosdána, she published five novels, five collections of poetry, several plays, including a musical about Edith Piaf, a memoir and a collection of short stories in a career spanning five decades.
An influential figure on the Irish literary scene, she was a founder editor of the literary journal Cyphers in 1975 along with Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Pearse Hutchinson and Macdara Woods, established the Irish Writers’ Co-​​operative with Desmond Hogan, Neil Jordan and Steve McDonagh, and set up the literary festival, Scriobh, in her adopted Sligo.
Brian Leyden, a fellow writer, friend and neighbour paid this tribute today: “Leland Bardwell lived life at the same jaunty angle she tilted a cigarette or wore her beret. Quick thinking, self-​​vigilant, a true bohemian, friend to Patrick Kavanagh and Luke Kelly, in her poems, plays, and novels she belonged in the first rank of Czeslaw Milosz’s ‘secretaries to the invisible’. She loved to quote Pearse Hutchinson on raw experience, ‘If it’s bad enough, you might get a poem out of it’. Prone to the sudden tizz, her conversations often began: ‘It’s all rather awkward, actually….’ She embodied that bird of passage in her poem Cuckoo On Top Of The Protestant Church, Dugort: ‘gate crasher, percher on steeples. Such selfishness, such panache, never in the one place twice’.”
Author Molly McCloskey said: "I first met Leland in 1990 in Sligo, at a small writing group Dermot Healy had started. She came in with Dermot one night and I can still see her there, the look of concentration as she listened to our stories, the seriousness with which she took them. We became close friends in the years after. Leland was an unusual combination of things – both a hell-​​raising party pal and a caring maternal figure I relied on enormously. She had an incisive mind, and was one of those rare people who, as she aged, remained deeply interested in the new and in the young. She was ahead of her time in many ways, and carved for herself a life that was not always easy but that was certainly, in the years I knew her, her own. She was independent, irreverent, hilarious, and very generous."

'Steely, determined, stubborn': Colm Tóibín on Leland Bardwell
Ní Chuilleanáin, the next Ireland professor of Poetry, said of her new and collected poems, The White Beach: “it is good to see her work of the decades collected - it has inspired many Irish poets, male and female, and should be much more widely known. Leland Bardwell’s poetry is witty, full of sharp, intimate honesty, full of truth and surprises. She is a poet who has felt the shocks of our time, the private impacts and the historic changes.”
Born in India to Irish parents, she was brought home at the age of 2 and grew up in Leixlip. Co Kildare. She was educated at Alexandra College, Dublin and the University of London.
Her father, Pat Hone, had a family lineage that included the artists Nathaniel Hone (the elder and the younger) and the stained-​​glass artist Evie Hone. In interviews, she said that categorising her as an Anglo-​​Irish writer was inaccurate, as her family originally came from the Netherlands, but she frequently wrote about being Protestant in Ireland after independence.
As the description in her memoir, A Restless Life (2008), attests, she had an extremely difficult childhood. Her parents openly favoured her elder, more beautiful sister, Paloma, and her mother, perhaps jealous of her younger daughter’s intelligence and talent, convinced Leland that she was ugly.
Her adult life, unsurprisingly, was indeed restless. She married, in 1948, but later separated. There were subsequent affairs and entanglements. She drifted from bohemian postwar London back to Dublin, where she carved out a life for herself and six children, and became a fixture on the literary scene, counting among her friends Patrick Kavanagh and Paul Durcan.
She struggled to bring up the children and applied herself to writing, bringing to both her poetry and her prose a clear-​​eyed, unsentimental empathy for the disadvantaged, those rendered less powerful by their gender, poverty, lack of education or emotional injuries.
Fellow writer Evelyn Conlon paid tribute. “I interviewed her for the Irish Writers’ Centre and what a night. We were just about to start when her ex-​​husband came in and sat in the front row. She took a few deep breaths, let out a chuckle and carried on. That night she said, among other things, that you could never really be poor if you didn’t have children. I was asked to write for a festschrift for her 70th birthday and then about a year later was asked to her 80th. She said that once she hit 70 it was time to come out, which was a thing we never expected, because she was truly ageless. That London Winter is a gem, one of the coldest, clearest echoes coming from that time. I will miss knowing that she is there.”
Her works include poetry collections The Mad Cyclist, The Fly and the Bed Bug, Dostoevsky’s Grave: Selected Poems; The White Beach: New and Selected Poems, 1960-​​1998; and The Noise of Masonry Settling; novels Girl on a Bicycle; That London Winter; The House; There We Have Been; and Mother to a Stranger; the memoir A Restless Life and Different Kinds of Love, a short story collection.
