    Francesco Cirillo developed his famed system for improving productivity as a college student 30 years ago. Using a kitchen timer shaped like a pomodoro (Italian for tomato), Cirillo divided the time he spent working on a project into 25-minute intervals, with 5-minute breaks in between, in order to get more done, without interruptions. By grouping a number of pomodoros together, users can tackle a project of any length, and drastically improve their productivity, enhance their focus, and better achieve their goals.

    Central Banking in Turbulent Times examines fundamental questions about the central banking system, asking whether the model of an independent central bank devoted to price stability is the final resting point of a complex development that started centuries ago. It dissects the hypothesis that the Great Recession has prompted a reassessment of that model; a renewed emphasis on financial stability has emerged, possibly vying for first rank in the hierarchy of objectives of central banks.

    L'assertività è la capacità di esprimere i propri sentimenti, scegliere come comportarsi in un dato contesto, difendere i propri diritti, esprimere serenamente un'opinione in disaccordo con gli altri, chiedere agli altri di modificare i loro comportamenti quando vengono percepiti come fuori luogo o offensivi. Tutto questo è fatto in modo costruttivo. Sviluppare un comportamento assertivo permette di gestire le relazioni professionali e sociali con fermezza, evitando sia la risposta aggressiva, sia quella passiva. L'obiettivo dell’assertività è quindi creare rapporti interpersonali basati sulla collaborazione e, al tempo stesso, affrontare con efficacia anche le situazioni problematiche

Over some 40 years he wrote 366 sonnets to Laura, whom he probably never even spoke to, and they remain immediate and affecting even now. Called "Rime Sparse (Scattered Rhymes)", they influenced Chaucer and many others.

    Il periodo che va dalla conquista del potere di Mussolini, nell'ottobre del 1923, alla sua caduta nel luglio 1943 è passato alla storia con il nome di "Ventennio fascista" e avrebbe mutato la politica, l'economia e la vita sociale degli italiani. Il fascismo non fu un semplice partito, una corrente di pensiero o un movimento conservatore. Fu prima il sogno, poi il tentativo, di Mussolini di cambiare l'Italia.

    Gaio Giulio Cesare è il personaggio più famoso della storia di Roma antica, nonché uno dei più noti condottieri di tutti i tempi. In suo onore vennero chiamati "Cesare" gli imperatori di Roma, gli imperatori tedeschi e gli zar russi. Eppure Cesare non fu mai imperatore o re. Nel corso degli ultimi, tempestosi anni della Roma repubblicana, fu cinque volte console, pontefice massimo per quasi vent'anni e dittatore.

    Il processo che ha portato all'Unità d'Italia è stato lungo e violento. Guerre e rivolte si sono alternate a alleanze di comodo e indigesti trattati di pace. Scambi di territori sono stati spesso legittimati da plebisciti.
