April 23 - Ariston Castelnuovo Theater

I have a bar was born from the work that this group of people did within the humor rediscovery course "Laughing is a serious thing", because laughing makes those around you smile.
Laughter is one of the first things we learn in our life path, but unfortunately as we grow up we lose the habit of it, we no longer seek contact with it and sometimes we even tend to deny having been part of the "clan of laughter". Course held by Marco Mengoli between November 2008 and March 2009.

I have a Bar, it is neither a show nor an essay, but I can say ... A mirror of society.
In any bar, the patrons of the bar take turns, ordinary people, talking about a common Italy, throwing their problems, their obsessions, their worries on the barista's counter. And as in every corner of the center, where there is a bar, there is also a bartender, who listens to the patrons, seeing Italy pass in front of him ... An Italy that reads in the newspaper, but also finds himself on the counter. I have a bar, says the bartender, and like any bar rightly, this one also closes at a certain time, leaving behind one day, but already carrying a new one in my lap.

Mad Cow Disease found in Washington

  • April 4, 2021
In the first reported case of mad cow disease found in the United States, investigators tracked the infected cow to the northwest corner - in Washington state. The cow is known to come from one of the two livestock markets there. Markets have not been identified. There are approximately 500,000 beef cows in Washington state.

The public should NOT be at risk, because the brain and spine - the areas that carry the disease - were removed from that cow before it was processed. Regular cuts of meat from a cow, even if infected, are safe for consumption. Recalls are made simply as a precaution.

Mad Cow Disease - Bovine spongiform encephalopathy - gained its fame when cases broke out in Britain in 1985. The disease is caused when cows are fed from the brains of other infected cows and then catch the disease on their own. This feed is officially illegal in the United States and has been since 1997.

Humans do NOT suffer from mad cow disease. Instead, if they eat the infected spine or brain area, they can come up with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Despite the huge press about mad cow disease, only 153 humans have had the disease since it was tracked, worldwide. By comparison, 211 people died from West Nile virus in the United States in 2003 alone - and this was considered a small number.

Canada quickly banned imports of all US beef. In May, when Canada had a case of mad cow disease in Alberta, the U.S. ban on beef hurt their sales. Canadians have around 4 million beef cows, while the United States has around 34 million beef cows. Of these, about 5.5 million are in Texas alone. So our ban on Canadian beef would be similar to Canada banning all Texas beef. Instead, even though Washington has only 500,000 beef cows, Canadians have banned the meat of all 34 million cows. Some other countries followed suit.

With the United States exporting $ 2.6 billion worth of beef each year and only one cow has the disease, the likelihood of having any risk is far less than being struck by lightning twice. It is always good to think about the risks in your life, but the risk of contracting mad cow from American beef is so remote as to be questionable. If you want to worry about your health, think about exercising 3 times a week, not smoking, avoiding all junk foods and sodas, and getting your vitamins every day!

Excellent book on the problem of the industrial exploitation of animals on farms. The text describes the production processes of meat foods and explains the environmental and human health costs.

"The Mad Cow phenomenon is one of the many expressions of that unscrupulous and consumerist cynicism that is jeopardizing the equilibrium and conservation of the entire planet. Feeding cows that are herbivorous animals with sheep meat, contravening their most elementary physiology, it gives the measure of how far we have distanced ourselves from the order of the world. The fact, then, that these sheep were sick, and that their carcasses transformed into feed remained enabled to spread the contagion, is logical corollary to our perversity!

Certainly man can go beyond his own biology, and that of his domestic animals, but if he does, you can be sure that nature will sooner or later give him the bill. Which is often a boomerang hit. Like the Mad Cow, precisely "

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy

Quotes aboutbovine spongiform encephalopathy (abbreviated BSE, from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy), known as mad cow disease.

  • Sometimes nature rebels and diseases like mad cow disease arise, but that's not enough to stop our race to self-destruction. If it is true that we are what we eat, feeding on animals raised in this way can only make us sick, sooner or later. (Sveva Sagramola)
  • Beyond the risk posed by this disease, the animals we eat are known to transmit all their diseases to us. If one knew how they are raised, he would not wait for emergencies like this to ask himself what he brings to the table. (Red Ronnie)
  • So what would happen if [the bovine] instead of plants he ate meat directly? The forces that allow him to produce meat would remain unused! If we think of a factory that is capable of producing something, but does not do it while remaining active, we realize how much strength is being lost. But the forces that remain unused in an animal body cannot be lost. The bovine would ultimately be filled with such forces, and they would produce in him something other than vegetable matter transformed into meat. Those same forces would remain in him, exist in him and do something else in him, produce something wrong. Instead of producing meat, it would fill up with every possible harmful substance. In particular, it would fill up with uric acid and uric salts.
    Uric salts, however, have a strange habit of their own, they have the weakness of attacking the nervous system and the brain. Therefore, if a bovine ate meat directly, the consequence would be that it would produce a huge amount of uric salts that would go into the brain and drive it crazy. If we could do the experiment of feeding a herd of cattle with dove meat, we would get a crazy herd. (Rudolf Steiner)
  • Those who choose organic food want to avoid unnecessary risks and believe that natural production methods are healthier. This belief has received further confirmation from the mad cow epidemic in Europe and the subsequent discovery that intensively reared cattle are fed slaughter residues. By eating the meat of these animals, at least 150 people, and according to some many more, contracted a fatal disease with a relatively slow course. It is therefore no wonder that millions of consumers have decided that traditional methods can be safer, especially for their children. (How we eat)
  • The winter between 2000 and 2001, with which the new millennium began, was neither a triumphant, nor a magnificent, nor a progressive season for the peoples of Europe. They had to witness, dismayed, a paradoxical and humiliating spectacle. One of the richest continents on Earth has become as if impoverished by a crash: food, nutrition, the most elementary practice of existence has suddenly become insecure, risky. BSE, bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the disease that makes animals mad and leads them to rapid death, has spread like a new plague in all herds of Europe. (Piero Bevilacqua)
  • [On the risk of cattle becoming ill with BSE from being fed with the remains of other cattle] Now, tell me: doesn't this concern you one bit? I won't eat a single hamburger anymore. Not even one! (Oprah Winfrey)
  • Someone thought of giving him [to the cows] feed based on animal meal, transforming herbivores by definition into forced carnivores. In that case, nature rebelled, striking animals and humans with what we called "mad cow syndrome", as if we weren't the madmen. (Mario Tozzi)
