Last night I was happy to read that the Italian Government seems to be working towards a fair retribution for freelance journalists. 

The article appeared on Il Corriere della Sera on 28 March explained that the Camera (The House of the Senate) approved a legislation proposal to offer fair payments to Italian freelancers and discourage publication to exploit underpaid labour. 

Shall the proposal be approved by the Senate too, newspapers and media publications will no longer qualify to receive state funding unless they comply with the new retribution scheme for freelancers. 

I hope this will be just the first step towards the renaissance of Italian journalism.

The Protection of Children Is not Only a Parental, but Social and Governmental Responsibility

I was happy to see that Google is reminding us of Universal Children's Day as one can see here below from the famous Google Doodle. Yet, one has to focus on the UN Resolution 836 (IX) and which are the fundamental values of that resolution which has to be observed not only by parents, teachers, governments but by entire societies. Therefore, also children that are stateless or living in war areas, have those rights and are entitled to protection of the locals and the international community. …See More
