Europe could proceed with 'debt infringement'
If the responses to the European Commission, which the Italian government is expected to provide by today, are not satisfactory, the Commission could proceed against Italy not for the excess deficit, but for breaking the "debt rule ». The infringement of the "debt rule" (the Italian one is at 130% of GDP and not at 60% as imposed by Maastricht and Italy was committed to bringing it down) requires a correction of the public budget "which could last several years, perhaps five, during which the country's economic policy and structural reform plans would be subject to quarterly European supervision "[Bastasin, Sole].
Loves: Michelle Obama and others
Michelle Obama, in her memoir Becoming, due out tomorrow, says that twenty years ago she was forced to have an abortion. He then chose in vitro fertilization and thus had Malia and Sasha, now 20 and 17 years old. "I felt like I had failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were ... We were kind of trapped by our pain, thinking that, in a sense, we were lost."
- Couples who broke up.
Simona Ventura and the producer Gerò Carraro, son of Mara Venier's husband, "with deep respect" after eight years together. The two lived together without getting married and two years ago they adopted Catherine.
Micaela Ramazzotti and Paolo Virzì, married since 2009 after meeting in 2007 during the auditions of Tutta la vita davanti. Children: Jacopo and Anna (9 and 5 years old). To decide the farewell would have been her.

Changed the definition of kilo
«The platinum and iridium alloy cylinder stored under a triple bell jar at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in Sèvres will be replaced by a calculation using Planck's constant. As explained by the scientific director of the INRIM (National Institute of Metrological Research), Maria Luisa Rastello, there was a well-founded suspicion of a mass variation of the prototype preserved in Sèvres. A variation around 35 micrograms - the weight of a butterfly's wing - therefore slight, but the problem is that it was neither controllable nor predictable. Our society is increasingly oriented towards nanotechnologies and an uncertainty of 35 micrograms becomes a serious problem. So the international committee of weights and measures decided to move on to another concept: no longer vulnerable material samples but unchanging fundamental constants. The decision will be made official at the Versailles General Conference (13-16 November): the kilogram and the other three units of measurement - the ampere for the current intensity, the kelvin for the temperature and the mole for the quantity of substance - which had not yet been defined in terms of physics constants, from May 20, 2019 they will be »[Aluffi, Rep].
Planck's constant is the relationship between quantum particles and their energy. To give an idea of this type of definitions, which have abandoned the material models, here is that of the meter, no longer the forty millionth part of the terrestrial meridian, in its time represented by a platinum-iridium bar conserved in the International Archive of Sèvre weights and measures, but, since 1983, the distance that light travels in a vacuum in a time equal to 1 / 299.792.458 of a second.
