If You have beeb blabbing chances are that you may be on these pictures. I have been on blab.im just for one week but this new video chat platform connected with your +Twitter handle seems to be the craze of the moment. The secret must be its simplicity and the fact that there are very few things you have to know about videochatting in order to participate actively. +Mike Downes and I go a long way back to the very beginning of +Google+ #Hangouts in 2011. Today we aren’t hanging out as much as we did when the videochatting platform was launched. The reasons may be many. Today we are happy about this new platform and the success that blab.im is having shows that there is always need for something new on the Web and people are really willing to hop in and try something that is well done and simple to use. +Team Blab is doing a great job, and I’m pretty sure these are days of bug squashing, pints of coffee drinking,few hours a day sleeping, wghile sorting all the suggestions coming in from everyone. My suggestion is to keep it simple. There are a couple of features I would love to see if I may suggest: A) An invite button, so that I could invite my friends over to my chat on Blab. B) a sound annoucing when someone wants in the room. In a multitasking world it would be very helpful.C) the possibility of screen sharing. (It could be a fifth window where anyone could share their photos or links, or desktops. That is all. I am a street photographer This is my collection on G+ so I will keep taking screenshots of blab.im Blabbers blabbing from all over the world. You can find me onFacebook Google Plus Twitter Pinterest
Vengo spesso in questa bellissima cittadina del Veneto; mi rilassa la sua Piazza Grande ancora a misura d’uomo e ricordo anche le accese polemiche che ci furono negli anni 80 quando si paventò l’idea di renderla pedonale. Allora ero il fotografo del +Gazzettino ed ho seguito la vicenda con passione. Sono felice che alla fine abbia prevalso il buon senso, regalandoci una delle più belle piazze della provincia di Treviso.
Una piazza che per un “fotografo di strada” come mi piace definirmi adesso è sempre una grande attrattiva.
All’inizio della mia carriera di fotoreporter d’assalto frequentavo luoghi più pericolosi. La guerra Serbo Croata mi ha insegnato che bisogna stare attenti alle mine anti uomo che sono verdi e sembrano dei grossi freesbee. L’Intifada in Israele mi ha insegnato che vivere o morire in certi casi è una questione di piccole decisioni prese in fretta, e così via.
Adesso sono tranquillo e ho famiglia. Le foto di guerra le lascio fare agli altri. Mi piace cogliere certi momenti nei quali la gente si ritrova anche così per caso come in questa foto fatta davanti al Duomo, dove due vecchi amici, un uomo e una suora si ritrovano per uno scambio di idee. Non ho ascoltato quello che dicevano ovviamente ma la loro conversazione era cordiale e genuina

(by pio dal cin)March 15th 2013 00:18 a.m (Rome Time GMT+1) As Pope Francesco begins His Papacy with a visit to the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome to pay respect to Mary Mother of Jesus. known to the people of Rome as
Even the +Dalai Lama made a +Google+ post to acknowledge that He knows and Loves Saint Francis of Assisi for His discipline,simple ways, and Love for All Creatures.
Being the first Pope ever to choose such a Great Name puts Him on a very important spot. Not easy to manage.
The need for a simple Man that can embrace the Original Message of Jesus through the New Testament withnessed in person by Saint Francis of Assisi was strongly needed in a corrupted and evil world that hasn’t spared even the Vatican in the past decade.
2)Pedophile Scandals in the Catholic Church
3)The IOR Vatican Bank Scandals
He has a though job ahead of Him, but His simple ways (He greeted the crowd in St.Peter with a “Fratelli e Sorelle Buonasera”) have already conquered the world. He asked the people who gathered in the Square to Bless Him, before He would Bless them.

With the Conclave Extra Hommnes from the Latin word “cum clavem” (with key) that comes from what happened in 1270 when the people of Viterbo locked the cardinals in the City’s Palace until they reached the election of Gregory X
The process to elect the new Head of the Catholic Church will begin on Tuesday March 12th.
As I stated in a previous post( A fool’s prediction), trying to make a prediction is like to be able to guess the lottery numbers. Anyone can be right or wrong.
I was brought up a Christian Catholic in a very strict way. My name comes from Padre Pio da Petrelcina whom my dad met many times when he was a “small friar” battered by the Church and confined without the permission to Celebrate the Mass as he was becoming popular among the crowds for His “miracles”.
(Mons. Albino Luciani-Pope John Paul the I with my father) I met two Popes personally in my life: Pope John Paul
the I and Pope John Paul the II. (foto copyright pio dal cin 2013)
During my travelling around the World, as a photojournalist I came in touch and I studied
Islam, Ebraism, Buddhism and the Religion of the Native Americans, out of my curiosity of understanding where, if there is one, lies the Truth.
I must admit that I wasn’t thrilled about Pope Benedict VXI; not much for His great personality and profound culture, but for the fact that he “sported” those huge golden crosses on His neck and the “fisherman ring” was big enough to buy a couple of apartments.
I kept repeating to myself that “This cannot be Sacred..” Isn’t the Church supposed to support the poverty as one of the three wows?”
Native Americans have a saying “If it is Sacred it must be Free..” I like this. But how many controversial, not free items are there in the Catholic Church today? Why is the Legacy of Saint Peter obliterated by scandals of the Vatican’s funds of million of Euros?
I learned that the IOR (the Vatican Bank)is the most powerful bank in the whole world.
This should change, in my humble opininion. Saint Francis of Assisi was called by Jesus
to “Repair the Church”“Vai Francesco, ripara la mia Chiesa” and was cited here by Benedict VXI.
Times are very hard and the sex scandals, Vatican Leaks and not so transparent transactions of the Church are “rocking the Boat” like never before.
Given my statement that “You have to be a Fool to make a prediction of choosing a Pope”, I will have another approach and “write a letter of plead to the Holy Spirit“, asking to pick the only one I saw that fits the description of Saint Francis of Assisi: Cardinal Sean O’Malley (read His blog)
LETTER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT: I will start with this Song to the Holy Spirit, that is sung by the Cardinals upon entering the Conclave, to ask for Divine Inspiration.
Dear Holy Spirit,
I am just a grain of sand in the Universe. I understand nothing about the Laws and the Forces that balance the Great Space.
Many Humans call upon Your Force and Greatness. Some call You Great Spirit, other call You Holy Spirit, other do not even believe in You.
During these days the Catholic Church is called to elect the Captain of the Ship.
It is been very hard for me in these past years to believe that Your Holy Presence is among those walls, given all the scandals that we heard about.
It is very hard to boftenelieve that the Spirit of Jesus and of Saint Peter, and Saint Francis of Assisi is behind the gold and richness ofnen shown by those who are called to be Your servants, while there are million of people who suffer in the World.
So here is my humble plea: If You are really among those walls, Shed a Great LIght upon those who are called to elect the new Pope so that His ways will be as Jesus requested of
simplicity and trasparency. a real Sheperd that can show the World that Jesus is still among us human beings in the way HE taught us.
My pick is Sean O’ Malley
