Tomato sauce, a story of contrasts

Everything starts from a fruit, but do not dare to put it in the fruit salad. The fatal embrace with wheat

The tale of
tomato sauce
is a story
of contrasts.

Everything starts from
a fruit: but be careful,
do not dare put it in
the fruit salad.

A red and liquid
temptation that seems
a perverse idea of
the Great Alchemist

to simplify sin,
making it accessible
to all.

The sauce is the art of
becoming. Moments that
turn into minutes,
hours, days

that blend only if they are
given the opportunity to
bond. And true bonds take

It is the triumph of mischief
that tempts spaghetti:
and the embrace is
fatal since wheat

- whether it be pasta or
bread - with tomatoes
always succumbs to a
sin of gulosity.

The scent of the sauce
would not be such without
the sweat that is needed
for its preparation.

Tomato sauce is the
smell of home, Sunday
scent, family

It is comfort and nostalgia, it is a smile and a tear, it is warmth and freshness.
Contrasts, precisely.

Among the major contrasts of the post-lockdown, there’s what Americans attribute to as "first-time climate dudes", referring to the beginners convinced that they are great experts on climate issues. The data available to the scientific community show that the forced closures in 2020 helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to the use of fossil fuels by 6 percent. An incontrovertible fact on the path to take, or continue as the case may be, in order to save the planet from overheating. Yet "beginner-experts" are rampant in the press and on the web. Among them are well-known names such as Bill Gates, according to whom the attempt to reduce emissions "is a fairy tale", and writer Jonathan Franzen, according to whom there is nothing to be done and one can only "accept the disaster that is coming". Unfortunately, opinions of certain importance in an area where analysis should be measured with the balance of specialization and common sense. And not with that of notoriety.

Time applied to our lives often leads us to a simplification in distinguishing two human categories: latecomers and punctuals. Psychologists and researchers from all over the world have practiced on the subject. It is generally believed that punctuality is linked to the conscientiousness of the person and, according to some, also to the time when you normally wake up (early risers would be more punctual than late sleepers). But the matter is the subject of extensive debate. A US study shows that time passes faster for anxious people than for those who are more relaxed. This was demonstrated by a simple experiment in which a group of volunteers had to mentally count up to one minute. For those who thought they never had enough time, the minute lasted an average of fifty-eight seconds, while for those who didn't feel that kind of pressure it could even reach seventy-seven seconds. Now science may have to find time to deal with other issues related to the topic. For example: is it true that latecomers are nicer? How important is latitude, is the North truly more punctual than the South? Is there a "cure" for the two excesses, the punctual maniac and the chronic latecomer? To be continued. 0 0
