Electricity comes back after months and enthusiasm goes through a school in Puerto Rico.


Puerto Rico (Porto Rico). After the huge “damages” caused by the impact of “Hurricane Maria”, one of the long-lasting consequences on the archipelago (where “around three and a half million people” live) has been the lack of electricity. Reactivating the supply of the latter took some “months” and, today, “17%” of the territory is still waiting.

Last January 11, the Academia Bautista de Puerto Nuevo (ABPN) shared on Facebook a video with the enthusiastic “reaction of” the “students” and staff members when power, “after 112 days”, went back to “their school” (Corriere della Sera.it).

Shown below, a clip of this moment made available by Today’s TMJ4 on YouTube.

Italy (Naples area). A migrant provides first aid to activist of political movement with restrictive approach towards immigration.


Source : "Il Mattino.it" (26/11/2017).Italy. A certain lack of empathy towards the institutions of the European Union and an explicit will to limit and strictly control migration inflows have proved to be among the distinctive features of the North League (Lega Nord), making its approach clearly sceptical when talking about European integration process and arrival (especially if illegal) of new migrants.

The current secretary of this political party is Matteo Salvini, who founded – in December 2014 – the political movement Us with Salvini (Noi con Salvini), in order to gain support and voters also in the centre and the south of the Country. We must not forget that, during years, the North League claimed to safeguard the interests of the Italian northern regions, also showing an ambition to state their independence.
