La Dieta Anti-Artrosi

L’artrite reumatoide è una tipica malattia cronica, in cui il rivestimento delle articolazioni diventa infiammata a tal punto che il dolore e l’incapacità della funzionalità ossea sono il logico risultato negativo. I rimedi ci sono e non si tratta solo di quelli strettamente legati a farmaci, ma anche una dieta adeguata è in grado di fornire ottimi risultati e lenire le sofferenze dettate dalla condizione infiammatoria in cui il corpo viene a trovarsi.
Frutta e verdura dei tipi coltivati biologicamente, cosi come l’olio extravergine d’oliva, rappresentano i cibi base indispensabili per ottimizzare il risultato di una dieta specifica e quindi aiutare a ridurre gli effetti negativi della malattia.
La deformità delle articolazioni colpite, fatica fisica, debolezza generale, anemia e febbre bassa sono altri sintomi associati alla malattia degenerativa dei tessuti osseo – articolari. Le reazioni avverse ai suddetti cibi possono tuttavia anche svolgere un ruolo importante nei sintomi dell’artrite reumatoide.
Anche la frutta fresca e le verdure descrivendoli nel dettaglio, contengono importantissimi antiossidanti anti-infiammatori come ad esempio la vitamina C e la vitamina E, così come fibre. Gli elementi nutrienti del cibo che possono aiutare a combattere la malattia sono come già citato nei capitoli precedenti di questo e-book gli acidi grassi Omega-3 il cui equilibrio nel corpo possono risultare determinanti per stare in buona salute sempre e specie nel caso di artrite reumatoide conclamata. Quando il corpo è, infatti, ricco di acidi grassi omega-3 e coadiuvato da una buona dieta, può produrre delle cellule sane, un sistema immunitario funzionale, e delle sostanze che limitano la quantità di infiammazione che si verifica a seguito della malattia.
Un altro importante elemento come il selenio aiuta tantissimo a combattere i radicali liberi, tra i principali responsabili del danneggiamento dei vari tessuti sani del corpo.
La vitamina C è invece uno dei principali antiossidanti nel corpo.
Purtroppo, gli studi dimostrano che molti pazienti con artrite reumatoide hanno dei livelli molto bassi di vitamina C nei loro corpi, perché viene utilizzata troppo in fretta, per cui i soggetti con artrite reumatoide, hanno bisogno di ottenere molta più vitamina C nella loro dieta.
Le persone affette da artrite reumatoide tendono ad avere problemi alle ossa a causa della loro condizione e sono esposti al rischio di finire con l’osteoporosi.
Tutti o quasi amano un succo di frutta appena spremuto o un rinfrescante frullato, infatti, entrambi hanno un ottimo sapore sono ricchi di vitamine e minerali, e soprattutto in grado di offrire un modo sano per aumentare l’energia di cui il corpo ha bisogno.
Il tè verde inoltre è una delle bevande più popolari al mondo, e viene utilizzato moltissimo come coadiuvante per ridurre l’infiammazione nel corpo. In uno studio del 2010 si è scoperto che il tè verde aiuta sia i pazienti con l’artrite reumatoide che con l’osteoartrite.
Per quanto riguarda invece le erbe, i componenti attivi del rosmarino sono soprattutto degli eccellenti antiossidanti, anti-infiammatori e anti-cancerogeni.
Le diete con dei cibi ricchi di beta-carotene, presente proprio nel rosmarino sono anche associate ad un ridotto rischio per lo sviluppo e la progressione di diverse malattie.

La Compagnia Delle Illusioni

Il suo nome in codice è ’o Mollusco.
Perché un nome in codice, per lavorare nella Compagnia delle Illusioni, è indispensabile, “un nome mellifluo, imprendibile”, come imprendibile deve essere la realtà dietro la finzione.
Dopo una carriera d’attore con poche soddisfazioni – l’uni­co ruolo vagamente importante è stato Raffaele, il portiere impiccione dello sceneggiato Tutti a Casa Baselice! –, a quasi cinquant’anni Antonio Morra vive con mammà e la sorella Mari’ a Napoli e si arrabatta dirigendo la compagnia teatrale amatoriale fondata dal suo dentista per compiacere le amanti e i clienti importanti. La sua vita si è persa molti anni prima, quando Lea, l’amatissima fidanzata che portava in grembo la loro bambina, è morta. Da allora Antonio è diventato un uomo senza capo né coda: l’uomo perfetto per la misteriosa zia Maggie, che lo attrae nella rete segreta della Compagnia delle Illusioni. Ed è così che Antonio diventerà finalmente ’o Mollusco: l’interprete di mille ruoli diversi che gli permetteranno di influi­re sulle vite altrui, perché “le persone non vedono ciò che è vero, ma rendono vero quello che desiderano vedere”. Ma proprio quando crederà di essere al sicuro da ogni responsabilità verso se stesso e gli altri, quando l’illusione avrà sovvertito la sua vita e tutta Napoli, proprio in quel momento avrà l’occasione di ritrovarsi. Perché, in fondo, “la conseguenza ultima della finzione è la verità”.
Una delle voci più sorprendenti della recente stagione letteraria italiana ci regala una commedia ricca di svolte inaspettate e personaggi irresistibili, doppi, acutissimi.

L’option Excalibur

La flottille est condamnée, avec l’armée qu’elle conduit en France pour le service du roi Édouard III… Une tempête l’a surprise pendant la traversée du Lancastre à la Normandie.
Sir George Wincaster, son épouse, son fils et quelque mille chevaliers, soldats et marins ne doivent leur salut qu’à l’intervention providentielle d’un astronef extraterrestre qui les arrache à la fureur des éléments.
Mais le sauvetage est intéressé. Les maîtres du vaisseau spatial réduisent les captifs à la condition de mercenaires « primitifs », et c’est un enchaînement sans fin de batailles qui les attend pour le compte d’une guilde galactique.
Y aura-t-il un jour, dans un lointain futur, où ils pourront enfin se libérer de ce joug humiliant dont ils ignorent même la raison ?
 
Par l’auteur d’Honor Harrington
« Le roman commence avant la bataille de Crécy, mais j’arrache mes personnages à la matrice de l’histoire ; j’entraîne une entité historique, à savoir des troupes anglaises du XIVe siècle, dans un environnement de science-fiction. »

Komi Syndicate

Book 6 in the Epic Space Opera series, “Dark Seas”
The Seventh Fleet and the Adepts:
The Komi Syndicate is a thorn in Admiral Sarah Dayson’s side when she left them at the end of Book 5. All she wanted was ships to fight the Hive with, but the evil side of human nature stood in her way. So she decided to take what she needed with no regard for the suffering of those who would say otherwise.
She had no idea about the heart of evil that pumped foul blood through the Komi empire. Urdoxander Komi is like nothing she’s ever seen. Heartless. Cruel. Murderous. Genocidal.
Sarah will not have it. She has a universe to save and nothing is going to stop her. Particularly not the evil machinations of politicians. If a few vile opportunists have to be permanently removed from the picture, that’s fine with her.
Komi Syndicate has battles, both in space and on the ground. Psychological warfare abounds. Sarah finds herself in a conundrum, and she’ll have to pick between two desperate choices to get her mission accomplished. Side with the evil she’s come to revile, or risk killing the innocent lives that inhabit the planets of the Komi Syndicate.
The Obedi:
Literally beings from outside our universe, these entities of the oververse find themselves more and more entangled with the affairs of this small corner of reality. Sylange is furious when the Hive attack her children, and her onslaught of revenge is enough to fill even a renegade Hive colony with emotional terror.
The Komi:
Sometimes there is a choice between two evils. The evil that does the minimum necessary to maintain order and control, and the evil that savors the brutality that commanding a fleet of 10,000 ships makes possible. Bannick Komi is left little choice. He must confront his father.

The Knockoff Economy

From the shopping mall to the corner bistro, knockoffs are everywhere in today’s marketplace. Conventional wisdom holds that copying kills creativity, and that laws that protect against copies are essential to innovation―and economic success. But are copyrights and patents always necessary? In *The Knockoff Economy*, Kal Raustiala and Christopher Sprigman provocatively argue that creativity can not only survive in the face of copying, but can thrive.
*The Knockoff Economy* approaches the question of incentives and innovation in a wholly new way―by exploring creative fields where copying is generally legal, such as fashion, food, and even professional football. By uncovering these important but rarely studied industries, Raustiala and Sprigman reveal a nuanced and fascinating relationship between imitation and innovation. In some creative fields, copying is kept in check through informal industry norms enforced by private sanctions. In others, the freedom to copy actually promotes creativity. High fashion gave rise to the very term “knockoff,” yet the freedom to imitate great designs only makes the fashion cycle run faster―and forces the fashion industry to be even more creative.
Raustiala and Sprigman carry their analysis from food to font design to football plays to finance, examining how and why each of these vibrant industries remains innovative even when imitation is common. There is an important thread that ties all these instances together―successful creative industries can evolve to the point where they become inoculated against―and even profit from―a world of free and easy copying. And there are important lessons here for copyright-focused industries, like music and film, that have struggled as digital technologies have made copying increasingly widespread and difficult to stop.
Raustiala and Sprigman’s arguments have been making headlines in *The New Yorker*, the *New York Times*, the *Financial Times*, the *Boston Globe, Le Monde*, and at the *Freakonomics* blog, where they are regular contributors. By looking where few had looked before―at markets that fall outside normal IP law―*The Knockoff Economy* opens up fascinating creative worlds. And it demonstrates that not only is a great deal of innovation possible without intellectual property, but that intellectual property’s *absence* is sometimes better for innovation.
