Shedding Light on Paradise
BY ALISON BESTE
@ VOL 20
ON APR 18, 2014
Alison Beste's photographs explore the boundaries between the built and natural world using light effects on the ocean horizon. Light from cities, vessels, and beacons become powerful metaphors for the ways in which we interact, manage, and attempt to control the environment. In Hawaii, where expectations of an organic paradise collide with an often-manufactured landscape, Allison's work scrutinizes the tension between nature and artifice. Alison uses light to examine how constructs of nature and the artificial are interrelated, ambiguous, and mediated by culture.

Le cure palliative nel territorio: la SAMOT a Caltanissetta
BY TANIA PICCIONE
@ VOL 2
ON JUL 19, 2018
The reference to the themes of humanization and the appropriateness of the treatments lead to palliative care as a concrete possibility for the treatment of the person who is in a terminal phase of illness. Palliative care underpins a carefree paradigm at all, entering the field when medicine seems to have to surrender to its limit and the finiteness of the human condition. Yet if the horizon of reference is not the pathology to be fought but rather a human being to be treated, this approach of medicine deploys its full potential.
L’accenno ai temi della umanizzazione e della appropriatezza dei trattamenti conducono alle cure palliative quale possibilità di concreta riposta alla cura della persona che si trova in una fase terminale di malattia. Le cure palliative sottendono un paradigma assistenziale affatto scontato, entrando in campo quando la medicina sembra dover arrendersi al proprio limite e alla finitezza della condizione umana. Eppure se l'orizzonte di riferimento non è la patologia da combattere ma piuttosto un essere umano da curare, questo approccio della medicina dispiega tutta la sua potenzialità.
Climbing and Beer
During the 14 years that Joel Irby lived in Colorado, he spent hundreds of days climbing in the mountains. Every once in a while he would come across one of those great endless views, composed of layer upon layer of mountains, which eventually dissolved into the clouds on the horizon. These stone clouds gave him his company's name and continue to inspire its sense of adventure and quest for new beer experiences.
