ROME (Reuters) - Italy's Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, continuing a war of words between Rome and Paris, said on Monday that France had no interest in bringing calm to violence-ravaged Libya because of its energy interests.

World Economy Forecast To Slow In 2019 Amid Trade Tensions

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — The world economy absorbed more bad news Monday: The International Monetary Fund cut its growth forecast for 2019.

The fund cited heightened trade tensions and rising interest rates. “After two years of solid expansion, the ...

Ever wondered why violins have f-shaped holes?

Instruments have gone through hundreds and sometimes thousands of years of refining to the form we recognise them in today. So why do guitars have a big circular hole in the centre whilst violins have fanciful f-shapes on either side of their strings? The earliest known depiction of a lira. Carving found in a Byzantine ivory casket (900 – 1100 AD) Over 1000 years ago the fiddle, or ‘fithele’, was spreading across Europe as string instruments became more complex and sought after.

To Help Digitize and Forever Preserve the Sound of Stradivarius Violins, a City in Italy Has Gone Silent

Image by Mark Ordonez, via Flickr Commons We all have respect, even awe, for the name Stradivarius, even those of us who have never held a violin, let alone played one. The violins — as well as violas, cellos, and other string instruments, including guitars — made by members of the Stradivari family 300 years ago have become symbols of pure sonic quality, still not quite replicable with even 21st-century technology, with rarity and prices to match. But to truly understand the preciousness of th...

Well-Planned Retirement

Funny, but untrue story: Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant... The fees for cars ($1.40), for buses (about $7). Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the zoo management called the city council and asked it to send them another parking agent. The council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the zoo's own res...

Models of Purity: St. Thomas Aquinas’s Devotion to St. Agnes

St. Thomas Aquinas’s feast day (January 28) is the octave day of the feast of St. Agnes (January 21). While this may seem inconsequential, there are many points of connection between these two great saints. First, they are both from central Italy: St. Agnes from Rome and St. Thomas from just south, Aquino, between Rome and Naples. Second, they both were from influential aristocratic families, Agnes from a noble Roman family and Aquinas from a mixed Germanic and Italian family, related to the Hol...
