Workplaces and schools actually encourage this type of multi tasking. Walk into any office and you’ll see people sending e mail, answering their phones, Instant Messaging, and on MySpace all at the same time. Research shows your error rate goes up 50% and it takes you twice as long to do things..
Of all visible creatures only man is “able to know and love his creator.” He is “the only creature on earth that God has willed for its own sake,” and he alone is called to share, by knowledge and love, in God’s own life.

Voglio qui ricordare un non dimenticabile articolo di Barbara Spinelli pubblicato dalla “Stampa” di qualche settimana fa, che forse De Bortoli non ha letto. Mi permetto di consigliargliene la lettura. I giornali ricevono molte querele e molte citazioni per danni, ricordava la Spinelli.
“New York mi ha catturato il cuore”, così la grande stilista, arrivata nella Grande Mela nel 1937, spiegava le motivazioni che l spinta a fondarela sua casa di moda, inaugurata nel 1942, proprio lì.

All that can be stated definitely is that the echoes of the status of illegitimacy appear to be far stronger in the text than the suggestion that Jesus was Mary child by Joseph.
What happened after the death and burial of Jesus is told in the last chapters of the four New Testament gospels. On Easter Sunday morning his tomb was found empty, and by Easter Sunday evening Jesus himself had appeared to his closest followers and all was well once again. Friday was hard, Saturday was long, but by Sunday all was resolved.
