Renewable Energies and AI: a symbiosis in the 2021 energy sector

We can finally say that: one of the exciting new challenges of 2021 is a democratic Smart Energy adoption. We, as “Smart” citizens, are now better educated on the benefits of adopting technologies directed to renew and control the energy production we daily strive for.  However, when you talk with your friends about “Smart Cities”Continue reading “Renewable Energies and AI: a symbiosis in the 2021 energy sector”

Germination chemistry is all around

It has taken almost ten days to see the first effort of life growth from something that may appear unuseful: the avocado seed that remains from the lovely Israeli salad I had almost a month ago. Not that I’ve waited to have it in the meanwhile. So, what I’ve done was simply put the “brownContinue reading “Germination chemistry is all around”

How Forests “handle” Carbon Dioxide

In our century, the twenty-first one, there are many contribution directed to restore and protect forests and in a simple image of natural cycles trees are a main part in the ecosystem balanced system. They are part of the photosynthesis process, producing hydrocarbons (which fuel they growth) and over the course of their lives theyContinue reading “How Forests “handle” Carbon Dioxide”

The Uniqueness of Fungi

Fungi have a great interactive community spread along the land and allowed by a good level of humidity in the forest land.
Mushrooms are not only a tasty vegetable that we can associate with good food and folk festivals…They are inter-actors able to create lasting connections (and we talk about thousands of years) with the environment they encounter along its path of growth and development.
Specifically, the article focuses on the interaction with the arboreal and fungal species; allowed by their particular adaptation.

Sperimentare la diversità, per una nuova idea di sostenibilità agricola

Ultimamente si è osservato (e dimostrato scientificamente) che il campo agricolo di una fattoria, se viene lasciato libero, è capace di sviluppare autonomamente le proprie difese naturali. Riesce a far crescere una varietà di piante capace di essere infestata da un minor numero di parassiti, rispetto ai campi dediti alle monoculture. Gli scienziati e gli agricoltori avevano notato questa “tendenzaContinue reading “Sperimentare la diversità, per una nuova idea di sostenibilità agricola”

La Terra divisa: in superficie e nel profondo.

  Viviamo in una tappa della storia dell’umanità che tende ad essere divisa, piuttosto che a generare coesistenza ed appoggio. Forse i problemi che dobbiamo affrontare, e leggere (volenti o nolenti) sui quotidiani e sui libri di testo che fanno parte della nostra quotidianità possono essere un punto a favore del cambiamento che desidera annunciarsi.Continue reading “La Terra divisa: in superficie e nel profondo.”
