Of course still one of the best in the world in terms of cuisine and for sure a country to get inspiration from, Viva Spain´s neighbor, Viva France too! 🙂 We in the South of Europe love food!!!

Miss Marisa's Revolutions we need: Hans Rosling: Debunking third-world myths with the best stats you've ever seen


Buon Giorno a tutti!! Today at Rome we have a cloudy but warm spring day. I would like to thank Miss Lopez for the lovely, please take me to a Tapas tasting, send you a lot of baci !! And I would like to say Buon Viaggio – have a nice trip!!- to Miss miranda going to Polland, can not wait to see the pictures!!
Today the post is about a must TED video from Hans Rosling and the new way of conceive data: What if we don’t have the right data to valuate  the world that surrounds us? What if we’re only having preconceived information from media or scientists? What if the world is improving and nobody tells us? Hans Rosling gives us Good News because another important revolution of our days will be that Good  – not Bad- news will be great news.
Even the most worldly and well-traveled among us will have their perspectives shifted by Hans Rosling. A professor of global health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, his current work focuses on dispelling common myths about the so-called developing world, which (he points out) is no longer worlds away from the West. In fact, most of the Third World is on the same trajectory toward health and prosperity, and many countries are moving twice as fast as the west did.
This original authos is going to present his data in the most original way you’ve never seen
By any logic, a presentation that tracks global health and poverty trends should be, in a word: boring. But in Rosling’s hands, data sings. Trends come to life. And the big picture — usually hazy at best — snaps into sharp focus.
Rosling’s presentations are grounded in solid statistics (often drawn from United Nations data), illustrated by the visualization software he developed. The animations transform development statistics into moving bubbles and flowing curves that make global trends clear, intuitive and even playful. During his legendary presentations, Rosling takes this one step farther, narrating the animations with a sportscaster’s flair.
Rosling developed the breakthrough software behind his visualizations through his nonprofit Gapminder ( www.gapminder.com) The free software — which can be loaded with any data — was purchased by Google in March 2007.
Rosling began his wide-ranging career as a physician, spending many years in rural Africa tracking a rare paralytic disease (which he named konzo) and discovering its cause: hunger and badly processed cassava. He co-founded Médecins sans Frontièrs (Doctors without Borders) Sweden, wrote a textbook on global health, and as a professor at the Karolinska Institut in Stockholm initiated key international research collaborations. He’s also personally argued with many heads of state, including Fidel Castro.
As if all this weren’t enough, the irrepressible Rosling is also an accomplished sword-swallower — a skill he demonstrated at TED2007.
Keep well informed and feel good womanhood!! Ciao-Ciao

Miss Marisa's Woman in Fashion: Donatella Versace Spring Summer 2011


Buon Giorno a tutti!!
Was’n it amazing the Miss Mitranda Malaga Film Festival red Carpet? I love it!! and what about Miss Lopez always working to improve the blog? she’s incredible!!
Today I’ll remember you the incredible Versace spring summer 2011 collection and talk a little bit about the designer to learn who the masters are.
Donatella Versace is an Italian fashion designer, as was her brother Gianni Versace, the founder of the Versace clothing brand. She actually is Vice-President of the Versace Group and Chief Designer of the fashion line, owns 20 percent of the entire stock market assets of Versace. Her brother, Santo Versace, owns 30 percent and Donatella’s daughter Allegra Versace inherited 50% of the company stock after Gianni Versace died.
Donatella was born in the Italian city of Reggio di Calabria, the youngest of four children in her family. Her father was a personal financier to the Italian aristocracy. In the mid 1970s, Donatella followed her older brother, Giovanni (“Gianni”), to pursue knitwear design in Florence, Italy. Donatella had planned to work for her brother as Public Relations, but she was more valuable to Gianni as a “muse and critic,” in 80’s Gianni launched a perfume dedicated to her, Blonde, and gave her her own diffusion label, Versus, which remains a well-known Versace inner line.
Donatella is the first to use notable celebrities to broadcast her clothing into the world on the catwalk and other public media such as advertisements, instead of using unknown models. Donatella soon proved to be the public relations giant within the Versace label and spread its name throughout Europe and most of the United States. Donatella chose to place some of her good famous friends, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Demi Moore, in high esteem in the Versace advertising sector, making them and other A-List celebrities such as Beyonce and January Jones the persona and image of Versace. Her popularity grew when she designed the famous Versace Green Dress, also known as the Jungle-Dress, which was worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Grammys in 2000.
She now oversees the production of a dozen collections each year. Versus – which was handed to her by her brother – has been successful for more than a decade. Celebrities love her and she has a loyal following, from Elizabeth Hurley to Courtney Love.
In this Spring Summer collection 2011 you can find Greek symbols, solid strong colors and new fantasies that characterize it, gorgeous shoes and accessories. Simple, feminine and innovative.- I would love to have it all – with the yet classic futuristic retro taste typical on Versace’s style, models walk on the squared white rectangle as in a spaceship full of well-dressed woman ready for the future.
Stay ready for the future, enjoy Versace’s collection for this summer and feel-good womanhood!!
Ciao-Ciao

The world of blogging, the world of possibilities…

Hello from the world of bloggers, the world of possibilities! MISS LOPEZ miss you already! Right now I am having a meeting for bloggers at Clarion, Skanstull, Stockholm.

I am amazed about the possibilities of having my blogg! Great! Today I have met my marketing assistant, and we came to the conclusion that you´d better look at the right side of life! I agree!. See the possibilities and not just the limits! 🙂

Something I love about having my blogg is that I find people at any age, both men and women reading my blogg, from 13 to 80+. Isn´t it good? Read my blogg and Feelgood!

Here Peter in the second picture with many ties at work, at the NGO I work a few hours a week at Riddarholmen, one of Miss Lopez´s readers, everyday! He told me he would love to wear Miss Lopez T-shirt as soon it´s possible. Great! I love it!

Miss Marisa´s News from Rome and Scandinavian design. 'Form us with love'


Wow!! Spring is coming my friends and Rome is getting warm…not bad for a tortilla tapa with Miss Lopez and the bloggers around the world…I can not wait for the MissLopez app,  that will be great miss Lopez: Go for the App!!!
Today we’re going to introduce a new argument in this fantastic blog: Design, and I would like to begin with a group of designers ‘made in’  Sweden, ‘Form us with love’.
Form us with love’ is a team of designer big stars on last furniture fair in Stockholm:  John Lofgren, Petrus Palmer and Jonas Petersson are the Team and have just received the price Elle Decoration Rising Star of Sweden. They use to work with Finland company Littala  and love brands like Flos, Vitra and Foscarini.
Theis favorite designer  are Erwan brothers and Ronan Bouroullec because of their futuristic approach to tecniches and materials., and Achille Castiglioni , modernists,  Eero Aarnio from Finland and Tom Dixon.
Even if the number of products that carries its name is big for a relatively young design studio, the biggest achievement for ‘Form us with love’ isn’t the actual product, but the process of manufacture. Through its relentless search for new opportunities the team has highlighted local, Swedish manufacturing, maybe more than any other contemporary design studio in Sweden today. It is easy to consider locally produced design a thing of the past but through all of its projects ‘Form us with love’ has shown that there are still great opportunities in Sweden today.
Now they are looking for a new material to revolution design as plastic has done in 60’s, big challenge we hope they can do it!!
Keep inspired and feelgood womanhood!!
Arrivederci
