Silvio Berlusconi has new 30-year-old girlfriend after multi-million split with ex-girlfriend
Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has appeared to confirm he is in a new relationship with a much-younger woman, shortly after agreeing to a multi-million-euro settlement with his much-younger ex-girlfriend. Marta Fascina, 30, was photographed holding hands with Mr Berlusconi, 83, at his luxurious Villa Certosa in Sardinia, as they were about to board a yacht belonging to Mr Berlusconi's long-time friend Ennio Doris. The four-time premier and media magnate, who has dominated Italian politics for more than 20 years, split in March from his partner of 12 years, Francesca Pascale, 35. The pictures were first published by Italian tabloid "Chi," owned by the Berlusconi family, which has been taken as confirmation of the relationship. According to reports in Italian media, the relationship was consolidated during quarantine and they have already moved in together to Mr Berlusconi's residence. Ms Fascina, a former journalist and press officer for Mr Berlusconi's soccer club AC Milan, has been a member of the Italian parliament's lower house since 2018 in Mr Berlusconi's Forza Italia party.

BrandPost: How Cloud Software and Service Providers Addressed an Education Crisis to Enable Remote Learning at Scale
One immediate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic this past spring was the temporary shutdown of schools all over the world, leaving over 1 billion students without classrooms.
