de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

1 a A person of Hebrew descent; one whose religion is Judaism; an Israelite.
Orig. a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to those of the ten tribes
of Israel; later, any Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as
conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation
before the exile (cf. HEBREW sb. 1), but the commonest name for contemporary
or modern representatives of this group, now spread throughout the world. The
word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not
ethnically related to persons of the main European groups, the Ashkenazim and
the Sephardim.

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Call of the wild - de Little Eagle la: 11/08/2004 02:34:05
(la: Nu stiu ce sa fac ?!!??)
Care 4 you(elev),
Cum simti in tine,aia faci,pleci ori ramai,mai vii ori stai,e uneori greu sa te decizi...parca nu stiu...mereu am tot zis ca plec din cafenea si mereu am revenit...dar e altceva,o alta situatie.
Cand faci pasul al mare te gandesti de 2 ori ,dar apoi te mai gandesti si la v iitorul tau...cum il vezi in Ro?Pt. ca pe acilea..e cam greu sa faci ceea ce visezi,si nu cresc banii in copaci si the streets are not paved with gold,my friend.
Ori esti norocos si nascut sub o zodie buna si ai usi deschise fara sa bati la ele,ori...mori de foame sau ai servicii care nu -ti dau bani indeajuns sa existi de unul singur...daramite sa mai ai si sotie si ...copil.E un sfat.

Sa nu discutam ...cum e-n Arizona ori oriunde in USA,e prea devreme,daca vii aici nu prea cred ca vei avea ...timp sa vizitezi tara...pt. ca vei munci poate 2 joburi si nu va fi poate de ajuns.Mai gandeste-te ,fii sigur ce vrei sa faci,azi nimeni aici nu te ajuta ca pe vremuri...in cazul meu de refugiat politic,cu bani,chirie etc.Pana faci pasul,mai gandeste-te,e sfatul meu dar nu-ti voi influenta niciodata opinia.Faci cum vrei si crezi,esti stapan pe viata ta si nimeni nu are dreptul sa -ti schimbe gandul.

By the way,Arizona(the desert)is amazing!!!!!!!!Multi amici indieni americani traiesc acolo....e un loc sacru si simti in tine asta.

LOVE&PEACE brother,
Ozzy























Alright now. - de Little Eagle la: 15/08/2004 21:38:42
(la: Casuta Postala A Lui Ozzy/Ovi)
AAAAAALLLLLL ABOOOARD HA!HA!HA!

The crazy train is ready now,boys and girls,wellcome to the show that never ends!Step inside my magical mistery train and world,and ride with me,the conductor,Ozzy/Ovi,I'll take you to places never seen before so .......

Wake up and I wanna see your hands up in the air!!!!
I wanna see the earth cracking ...I can't fuckin'here you!You ain't loud enough for me...!What are you? A bunch of pussies?Put some balls into it !C'mon,let-s go now!Clap your hands!
I LOVE YOU AAAALLLLLLL!!!!!

Si incep cu prezentul,cu azi de exemplu(boy,sunt sau nu poet cu rima?).
O vreme nasoala as zice de cacat,ploua,Marilyn a scos cacanarii de pisici afara
in gradina,am urmarit putin Tv olimpiada ne place mult,romanasii sunt si ei prin Grecia,ieri am vazut ceva soccer(fotbal)si spada,domne ce transpusi eram si desigur vroiam ca italianul sa-l bata pe ungur si a facut-o de am sarit in sus amandoi ca nebunii,sa nu uitam,iubesc Itali si italienii si soarta a facut sa am o sotie italianca.

Luna asta n-a fost mult de lucru pt. mine asa e vara,slow dar tot castig bine.
De aceea am acest timp liber sa scriu si trag de el pana nu vine marea furtuna cu sep....de comenzi.
Acum exact 1 sapt. am fost la un party(ziua de nastere a agentului meu,B.J)
am fost cam 60-70 persoane invitati,el are o mansion in Montclair(N.J)cu 7 dormitoare,coloane la intrare,etc.om cu banet.Si cu mari relatii....

Erau manechine de mode,colegii mei de arta si prieteni totodata.B.J.si Hildy(sotia lui)au primul copil,5 luni un baietel f. sucar deja.Ei sunt la 31 ani ca varsta si vor mai avea altul anul ce vine.

Si acum,siropul si salt&pepper to the story,I can't fuckn'heeere you...raise your hands for God's sake,c'mon,lets shake the earth now....
Domne si eu credeam ca sunt un old fart si fetele nu se mai uita la mine....
3 gagicute de 20-25 ani au vrut sa aiba sex cu mine acolo!!!!Una ma alerga si zicea,macar un blow job,alta ma pipaia la cur si ma invita sa merg afara in boscheti,alta zicea ca sa mergem la W.C.si erau...good looking!Una era manechin de mode la ELLE magazine si era asa de frumoasa ca mureai!!!!
Dar le stiu deja...plastic women!
Sex pe moment si maine nu le mai vezi .Am ...baut si m-am facut praf!!!!!

Gagicile,STIAU ca-s casatorit,au vorbit cu Marilyn si totusi se dadeau la mine ...va dati seama ca as fi putut avea ...3 femei intr-o seara?Si AM REFUZAT,s-au sucarit pe mine,dar le aratam cu degetul pe Marilyn si le ziceam:That's my girl!
In trecut....ohhh boy,sa nu credeti ca nu am visat la aceste fete,dar sunt prea loial fetei mele sa o insel si desigur i-am spus totul!Mai era un rusnac din Moscow care era homosexual si ma atingea pe mana mai mereu si imi facea avansuri sa -mi dea un blow job......l-am refuzat si pe el.

Domne,am eu 49 ani pe 3 Sep.ce vine,am fire albe in parul lung,si desigur port ochelarii stil Ozzy,trimisi de Sharon,4 perechi,am codita la par si tot atrag fete .....

Lumea acolo la party credea ca-s un star!Si oare nu sunt?
A doua zi,merg sa fac piata la supermarket(shoprite)si o fetita de 16 ani ce lucreaza vara in vacanta sa faca extra cash(multi elevi de liceu fac asta aici) si era cashier(la cassa)cade pe jos cand ma vede(frumusica foc)si imi zice ca la 2PM iese din serviciu si ca daca vreau...o pot astepta la intrare...vede ca am VERIGHETA pe deget si totusi vrea sex cu mine.Imi poate fi copil for God's sake si as intra si in cacat fiind minora...domne,nu stiu...fetele de azi,sunt altfel dar nu prea mult schimbate de cele ce am cunoscut in tineretea mea,in Ro. sau USA.

Deci orice fac ,vreau sa traiesc o viata reclusiva si calma acum,tot dau peste aventuri aiurite mereu.Azi ..pare o zi calma....oare?Sper!
Fug de lume dar lumea ma ajunge din urma si ma prinde.
Marti merg la Dr. familiei ca de obicei,pt. consult total si la fiecare 3 luni fac asta...am probleme mari cu sanatatea...m-am refacut mult dar mi-au trebuit 4-5 ani sa ajung la asta.

Cu 9 sapt. in urma insa,asa cum stiti,iar m-am apucat de bautura si drugs(only cocaine...parca nu-i de ajuns!!!) dupa o pauza de multi ani...e greu sa te lasi domne...f. greu!!!
M-am lasat iar de ele si de fumat tigari(marijuana la fel)De fapt zace o gramada de marijuana in frigider(e locul unde o mentii bine,pt. cine vrea sa stie)in cutie de metal si NU m-am atins de ea!marilyn mai fumeaza uneori la pipa,nu joint(adica rulata la hartie).Cati din voi n-au fumat macar odata?C'mon,don't gimme the bullshit!!!

Adica...."I smoked but not inhale"?Who are you foolin'maan?

In fine,deci nu mai beau nu mai fumez nimic,nu mai pun nimic in nas!Dar e greu sa te faci bine si Dr. DeNoya a gasit ca-s okay cu inima(ca tensiune...o aveam asa de mare ca omu'se mira ca mai traiesc....)am chiar aparat in casa de masurat,electric si zilnic ma controlez.

La fel si cu ficatu',colesterolul,eram pe duca dar cred ca sunt si azi....I cheated death cred 7 times....nu prea cred eu c-o s-o mai pacalesc....dar asta-i viata!Odata tre sa si mori,nu?
Sper sa apuc sa scriu destule in 2-3 ani si daca nu apuc,din nou,cer la toti ce citesc astea sa pastreze ce am scris pana acum,mai ales admin si Daniel.

In fine,deci remember,life is beautiful,live it to the fullest,traiaste clipa oricare ar fi ea.
Si deci acum Lila(Marilyn si sa stiti ca asa o numesc in intimitate),e in gradina cu Pooghee(pisica femela de 3 ani)si curand se va duce la maica-sa pt. 2 ore.
Bebitsa,motanul de 13 ani e in casa si doarme la picioarele mele.

Azi am si gatit(eu sunt bucatarul....barbatii sunt cei mai buni,cu mici exceptii femeile,nu ma luati la pietre ci sarutati-ma),ieri am mers la Jason,un f. bun amic grec(28 ani)ce e proprietar la un restaurant pescaresc,taica-su Pete l-a pus sa fie boss.Saptamanal merg sa cumpar peste proaspat(orice vreau)
si mereu imi da in plus(pe gratis)ori sardele ,nu la cutie ci crude,masline
pesti micuti de prajit in faina sau malai,scalops sau clams fresh!

Toti,oameni colosal de draguti si prietenosi si saritori.II dau si eu uneori o sticla de vin francez sau italian si chiar romanesc...pe aici exista unul rosu(Merlot si Sauvignon) si alb(Chardonais)numit...VAMPIRE,ati auzit de el?E f. bun si cheap,cam 7 $ sticla.

Azi ,mai tarziu iar la olimpiada si revedem ....Apocalypse Now,avem o mare colectie cu Marlon...I really loved so much that man....!!!!!!!!Si ca om dar ca actor...poate fi egalat?
De Niro,Pacino si cati altii...daca ei au zis ca Marlon IS GOD(in actorie)atunci au sau nu dreptate?

Sex am avut ieri si miercuri trecuta deci cam asta e ,de 2 ori pe sapt. sex,poate nu mai este de aproape 2 ore si a ajuns la 30 min. dar la 49 ani cati avem amandoi,nu-i chiar o rusine....la inceput....Lila trebuia sa se duca la Dr. ginecologic pt. ca avea cistita si dureri si i-a zis ca prea mult sex nu-i bine....e adevarat!Si NU-s deloc John Holmes,I-m average!!!Nu conteaza marimea si lungimea ci ce faci cu ea.
Ala a avut cam 10000 femei,eu doar poate 90...si toate le-am facut fericite.
Bill Wyman(a auzit cineva de el?Basistul de la Rolling Stones?A auzit cineva de Stones?formula veche inca din anii 60,)a avut cam 1000 femei in viata lui....sunt MIC in comparatie cu el sau Holmes.

Dar am avut si eu talentele mele si femeile fericite avand sex cu mine.
In fine.Despre sex altadata.
Curand spre mijlocul lui sept. mergem cu frate-meu de sange Vern(indian Navajo)sotia lui(Vern are 44 ani,par lung pana la brau in coada si e artist plastic f. bun si vinde pictura lui ce o face in traditia indiana...eu i-am dat aceasta sugestie cu 16 ani in urma),deci cu ei si altii cherokee,comanchees,Lakota,Iroquois,shoshonees,ne vom aduna la un Sundance (un ceremonial de rugaciuni si dorinta de LOVE&PEACE pt. intreaga lume)in upstate N.Y.

The elders se vor ruga si pt. mine,si sa stiti ca Dr. nu stiu nimic....ei stiu pastile...indianul stie plante si ierburi si rugaciuni la Wakan Tanka(Great Spirit of the world).
NU oricine e primit in randurile lor.Despre ei alta data,am scris destule acum la chapter 1.

Revin candva,don't forget...
LOVE&PEACE
Ozzy





























































































































































Jafurile, la ordinea zilei daca mergeti in concediu - de Dinu Lazar la: 11/08/2005 14:49:11
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
August. Vacanta. Deconectare.
Dar altii abia asteapta sa ne-o faca.
Tocmai are loc o discutie intre citiva fotografi pe tema asta...
==========================
Try to use only very old or destroyed-look cameras and do not make any noise when you are plundered.
When this happened nobody will help you; mafia is everywere.
And try to look very poor; no clock, no chains, any gold jewelry... and a miserable bag is also suitable...
Let all your original papers at hotel and use only copies.
----------
I have had cameras or other stuff stolen in almost every country I have ever worked. The exceptions: 13 African countries, Hungary, Czechoslovakia (as was), Russia and the Middle East, Spain & Portugal. In Hungary I left two leica's under a chair in a hotel lobby. The camera's were returned to me by a furious hotel worker. "Do you know what a temptation it is for our people when they see valuable stuff lying around?" This was in the days of communism. In Africa, a herdsman walked an hour into the nearest town to turn in a viewfinder that had fallen off a camera.

London still has an organized street Mafia, I am sure. Leave anything of apparent value in a locked car, even on a busy central London street with hundreds of people passing by, and it may be taken. Within 20 minutes it will be on a train to France, or elsewhere.

New York? 2 shiny cases full of Leica gear were taken within 5 minutes of my arrival at Westbeth, a building that is kept locked at the weekend. I was in the elevator about to go up to my apartment floor when my wife returned to the building. I looked for a switch to inactivate the elevator--couldn't find one. Took 12 paces to the front door to open it for my wife. In the intervening 20 seconds the elevator went up and came down empty. This was on a Sunday morning in an apparently deserted building. My mistake was to be using flashy cases. Never again.

Italy? Hah. Dinu is right. Don't draw attention to yourself. Don't have flashy bags. If you can, find a trustworthy local to work with you to keep an eye on your stuff.
--------------------------------
I always travel "downgraded", looking like I just barely made it and my stuff too. If I lose the gear it is not the end of the world, but I HATE the paperwork and time lost processing, processing, processing . . . and it is worse in Europe, and it is an eternal hell in South America (and will never get resolved). Having said that, my only real losses or problems have been here in North America . . . what a surprise.

I read a long time ago about a film crew (might have been a photog, don't remember), who had dingy looking cases with stenciled words to the effect of "morticians" or "coroners" supplies. According to them it worked well. If you are falling into town alone it isn't too hard to look like a vagrant, but if you arrive with a crew and insist on being "the president has arrived!!!!", well rots of ruck. It is amusing to see companies like Lightware who make superb cases, also offer covers that they advise you to "shoot with graffiti, scrawl upon, etc, etc".

If you insist upon walking the streets looking like a north american with half a camera shop hanging off you, well good, you deserve to get mugged.
The best shooters ever in the history of this medium usually walked about with only a single camera and maybe one or two extra lenses . . . Bresson, Haas, etc (notice they are two extremely different styles, but both minimalists when it came to walking the walk . . . you could learn to do the same).

Make your stuff look like s**t so nobody wants it . . . it still won't save you from the smartest hit and run thief, but then not much will except for a
45 automatic. . . and that ain't exectly a good idea, not even in gun crazy america.

Check the info from sites like Lonelyplanet, Roughguide, and Footprint. It isn't an exact evaluation of the situation, but it will give you a general feel for how you should proceed . . . much better than what you will find on this list . . . their updates are fairly current.

Bruce Springsteen

DANCING IN THE DARK

I GET UP IN THE EVENING
AND I AIN'T GOT NOTHING TO SAY
I COME HOME IN THE MORNING
I GO TO BED FEELING THE SAME WAY
I AIN'T NOTHING BUT TIRED
MAN I'M JUST TIRED AND BORED WITH MYSELF
HEY THERE BABY I COULD USE JUST A LITTLE HELP

YOU CAN'T START A FIRE
YOU CAN'T START A FIRE WITHOUT A SPARK
THIS GUN'S FOR HIRE
EVEN IF WE'RE JUST DANCING IN THE DARK

MESSAGE KEEPS GETTING CLEARER
RADIO'S ON AND I'M MOVING 'ROUND THE PLACE
I CHECK MY LOOK IN THE MIRROR
I WANNA CHANGE MY CLOTHES, MY HAIR, MY FACE
MAN I AIN'T GETTING NOWHERE JUST LIVING
IN A DUMP LIKE THIS
THERE'S NOTHING HAPPENING SOMEWHERE
BABY I JUST KNOW THAT THERE IS

YOU CAN'T START A FIRE...

YOU SIT AROUND GETTING OLDER
THERE'S A JOKE HERE SOMEWHERE AND IT'S ON ME
I'LL SHAKE THIS WORLD OFF MY SHOULDER
COME ON BABY THE LAUGH'S ON ME

STAY ON THE STREETS OF THIS TOWN
AND THEY'LL BE CARVING YOU UP ALL RIGHT
THEY SAY YOU GOTTA STAY HUNGRY
HEY BABY I'M JUST ABOUT STARVING TONIGHT
I'M DYING FOR SOME ACTION
I'M SICK OF SITTING 'ROUND HERE TRYING TO WRITE
THIS BOOK
I NEED A LOVE REACTION
COME ON NOW BABY GIMME JUST ONE LOOK

YOU CAN'T START A FIRE SITTING 'ROUND CRYING
OVER A BROKEN HEART
THIS GUN'S FOR HIRE
EVEN IF WE'RE JUST DANCING IN THE DARK
YOU CAN'T START A FIRE WORRYING ABOUT
YOUR LITTLE WORLD FALLING APART
THIS GUN'S FOR HIRE
EVEN IF WE'RE JUST DANCING IN THE DARK
EVEN IF WE'RE JUST DANCING IN THE DARK...

" The neon lights are shining on me again
I walk the lonely streets in search of a friend
I need a lady to help me to get through the night
If I could find one,then everything would be alright.

The sleepy city is dreaming the nigh time away
Out on the street I watch tomorrow becoming today
I see a man,he's got take away women for sale
yes for sale
Guess that's the answer
'Cos take away women don't fail...

Oh,dirty women,they don't mess around
You've got me coming
You've got me going around
Oh,dirty women
They don't mess around.

Walking the streets I wonder will it ever happen
Gotta be good then everything will be okay,
If I could score tonight then I will end up happy,
A woman for sale is gonna help me save my day."

okapa destin - de Belle la: 01/07/2004 02:49:12
(la: despre barbati ... fara suparare :))
eu n-am decat o singura parere: barbatii sunt buni doar sa deschida borcane, sa omoare ganganii si sa tunda iarba ;)

uite si celelalte doua bancuri de care-ti spuneam ... si promit de-acum inainte sa mai caut si bancuri in romana (nu e vina mea ca si cei din RO tot in engleza imi trimit da' o sa-ncerc sa ma conformez)

GOLF
There were two golfers on the golf course.
One of the men pulled out a cigarette, and asked his friend for a light.
His friend pulls out a 12 inch Bic lighter.
“Wow, where did you get such a large Bic?” “Oh, my genie got it for me.”
“Your genie? You have a genie? Where is he?”
“He is in my golf bag.”
The friend says, “Can I see him?” His friend says “yes, sure!” So the friend looks in the bag and out comes the genie.
The man says to the genie: “I am your master’s best friend. Would you grant me just one wish?” The genie says “yes, just one wish”. So the man wishes for a million bucks.
The genie goes back in the golf bag without saying a word. Pretty soon, the sky starts to get dark. Then it gets even darker. The man looks up and sees a million ducks flying over.
He gets really upset, and says “what is the matter with your genie? Is he hard of hearing? I said a million Bucks, not a million Ducks.”
His friend says to him: “Do you really think I asked for a 12 inch Bic?”


PISSING & MOANING
An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her telephone failed to ring when her friends called and that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady. He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1. The dog was tied to the telephone 's ground wire via a steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the phone number was called.
4. After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate on himself and the ground.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which goes to show that some problems can be fixed by pissing and moaning.

A NATIONAL ACROBAT(From Sabbath Bloody Sabbath)

I am the world that hides the universal secret of all time.
Destruction of the empty spaces is my one and only crime.
I've lived a thousand times,I found out what it means to be believed,
The thoughts and images,the uborn child of Devil that never was conceived.

When little worlds collide,I'm trapped inside my embryonic cell
And flashing memories are cast into the never ending well.
The name that scorns the face,the child that never sees the cause of man
The deathly darkness that belies the fate of those who never ran...

Well I know it's hard for you to know the reason why
And I know you'll understand more when it's time to die,
Don't believe the life you have will be the only one,
You have to let your body sleep,to let your soul live on.

Love has given love to you and now it's your concern
Unseen eye of inner life will make your soul return,oh yeah,
Still I look but not to touch,the seeds of life are sown
Curtain of the future falls,the secret stays unknown

Just remember love is life and hate is living death
Treat your life for what it's worth and live for every breath,
Looking back,I lived and learned but now I'm wondering
Here I wait and only guess,what this next life will bring....?

Geezer-bass
Ozzy-vocals+words
Tony-guitars
Bill-drums(HE IS A GREAT GUY!!!!!!!)
All great guys!!!!

Daniel,stiu ca esti poet,ce crezi de Ozzman?Beat mort,drogat dar mereu scrie versuri si poezie de cazi pe jos!!!!Ca si Jim Morrisson.....alt mare betiv si drogat de parca are vreo importanta..... sa spun cinstit? cele mai bune llucrari ce am pictat si au avut mare succes la vanzari in USa.....le-am pictat fiind drogat sau beat mort....!Cand esti...dus.....pe alt taramuri,parca ai tot talentul

(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
« Au fond, ce n’est pas la photo en soi qui
m’interesse. Ce qui je veux c’est de capter une
fraction de seconde du réel »

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004)
===================================================

Kingdoms of the world in a moment

Aug 5th 2004, From The Economist print edition
http://www.economist.com/cities/displaystory.cfm?story_id=3071607

Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose photographs defined the
20th century, died on August 3rd at the age of 95

ALTHOUGH his name was familiar almost everywhere, far
more so indeed than his work, Henri Cartier-Bresson
himself was not a familiar sight. With his alert blue
eyes and a coloured handkerchief knotted round his
neck, he would wander the streets near his home on
Paris's rue de Rivoli and seldom be recognised. One of
the greatest photographers of the 20th century was
himself rarely photographed.

In his lifetime, he travelled to all corners of the
earth, capturing images of some of the most
extraordinary moments of 20th-century history—the
Spanish civil war, the liberation of Paris after the
second world war and the funeral of Mahatma Gandhi. At
the same time he framed and preserved less famous
moments, elevating them with his genius so that they
somehow seemed to capture the essence of life itself.

His unequalled ability to seize a millisecond in time
was uncanny. In his book “The Decisive Moment”,
published in 1952, he wrote: “It is the simultaneous
recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the
significance of an event as well as a precise
organisation of forms, which give that event its
proper expression.” He was never very interested in
the technology of photography, in the effects that
could be obtained during developing and editing in a
dark room. It was all about the thrill of the chase,
the chance to seize a moment.

The man who first inspired Mr Cartier-Bresson was a
photographer called Martin Munkacsi, whose picture of
naked African boys running into Lake Tanganyika in
1931 persuaded him to take photography seriously. “I
couldn't believe that such a thing could be caught on
camera,” he said, “so I grabbed my Leica and went out
into the street.”

Between 1932 and 1935, he lived rough in Italy, Mexico
and Spain where he took some of his most memorable
images. Back in Paris he worked with Jean Renoir, a
film director, and ended up playing the unlikely role
of an English servant in the director's masterpiece,
“La Règle du Jeu”. He was a prisoner-of-war for three
years, and after the war was one of the founders of
the Magnum agency, a trail-blazing photographers'
co-operative. In 1948 he went on the road again,
mostly to India and China (in time for the fall of
Chiang Kai-shek), in an age when the images of
photojournalists like him filled the pages of picture
magazines that were, in the pre-television era,
hungrily viewed by millions.

Unassuming genius
For the last quarter of a century, Mr Cartier-Bresson
eschewed photography, taking only the occasional
snapshot of friends and family, and turning his
attention to drawing. (He trained originally as a
painter, his early work influenced by his friend, the
surrealist artist Max Ernst.) He maintained that he
scarcely wanted to discuss photography any more. “It's
like when you're divorced”, he said, “and people keep
asking about your former wife. There's something
indecent about it.”

He settled into a quiet life in France—in Paris and in
the small house that he owned for some 30 years in the
Lubéron, a region in the south of the country, to the
east of Avignon. And there he died on Tuesday August
3rd, just less than three weeks away from his 96th
birthday.

Mr Cartier-Bresson always said that to be a great
photographer you had to be unintrusive. “For me,
photography is very much a physical pleasure—it's like
hunting, except that we don't kill.” At the height of
his career he would stalk his subjects, and his quarry
would often be unaware that it had been captured on
film. His desire to remain out of the limelight stayed
with him to the end, including his wish to hold back
the world's photographers from the funeral of one of
the greatest of them.

His funeral was a private affair attended by some 50
family and close friends. Only after it had ended did
the French Ministry of Culture make an official
announcement of his death. And the next day, August
5th, many of his most famous images were splashed
across the front pages of newspapers the world over: a
woman slapping an informer she recognises at a
deportation camp in Dessau in 1945; Muslim women in
Srinagar, Kashmir, praying to the sun as it rises over
the distant Himalayas; and a French family picnicking
by the River Marne in 1938, almost a last pre-war
moment of stillness.

Of Mr Cartier-Bresson's death, President Jacques
Chirac said: “With him, France loses a genius
photographer, a true master, and one of the most
gifted artists of his generation.” But it is not only
France's loss. Mr Cartier-Bresson's fame, which grew
despite his efforts to avoid it, reminds a much wider
world of its persistent admiration for unassuming
genius, and of the dwindling stock of targets for that
admiration.

Cartier-Bresson, les photographes et l'équipe de

décès d'Henri Cartier-Bresson le 3 Août à 9h30 dans sa

Dupa cum multi dintre voi stiti saptamina asta se desfasoara conventia partidului Republican. Aseara Arnold Schwarzenegger a vorbit, iar astazi toate programele de radio si televizor si toate ziarele sau concentrat asupra speech-ului lui Arnold. Cei care doresc sa afle ce a spus mai jos puteti citi speech-ul lui. Tot aici puteti afla cine sint Republicanii si care este platforma partidului Republican. Citire placuta.

****************************************

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Thank you.

What a greeting! This is like winning an Oscar! ...As if I would know!

Speaking of acting, one of my movies was called "True Lies." It's what the Democrats should have called their convention.

My fellow Americans, this is an amazing moment for me. To think that a once-scrawny boy from Austria could grow up to become Governor of California and stand in Madison Square Garden to speak on behalf of the President of the United States that is an immigrant's dream. It is the American dream.

I was born in Europe ...and I've traveled all over the world. I can tell you that there is no place, no country, more compassionate more generous more accepting and more welcoming than the United States of America.

As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took the oath of citizenship.

Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around with an American flag around my shoulders all day long.

Tonight, I want to talk about why I'm even more proud to be an American -why I'm proud to be a Republican and why I believe this country is in good hands.

When I was a boy, the Soviets occupied part of Austria. I saw their tanks in the streets .I saw communism with my own eyes. I remember the fear we had when we had to cross into the Soviet sector. Growing up, we were told, "Don't look the soldiers in the eye. Look straight ahead." It was a common belief that Soviet soldiers could take a man out of his own car and ship him off to the Soviet Union as slave labor.

My family didn't have a car -- but one day we were in my uncle's car. It was near dark as we came to a Soviet checkpoint. I was a little boy, I wasn't an action hero back then, and I remember how scared I was that the soldiers would pull my father or my uncle out of the car, and I'd never see him again. My family and so many others lived in fear of the Soviet boot. Today, the world no longer fears the Soviet Union and it is because of the United States of America!

As a kid I saw the socialist country that Austria became after the Soviets left. I love Austria and I love the Austrian people - but I always knew America was the place for me.

In school, when the teacher would talk about America, I would daydream about coming here. I would sit for hours watching American movies transfixed by my heroes like John Wayne. Everything about America seemed so big to me so open, so possible.

I finally arrived here in 1968.I had empty pockets, but I was full of dreams. The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend who spoke German and English, translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism which is what I had just left. But then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting government off your back, lowering taxes, and strengthening the military. Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

I said to my friend, "What party is he?" My friend said, "He's a Republican." I said, "Then I am a Republican!" And I've been a Republican ever since! And trust me, in my wife's family, that's no small achievement! I'm proud to belong to the party of Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt, the party of Ronald Reagan and the party of George W. Bush.

To my fellow immigrants listening tonight, I want you to know how welcome you are in this party. We Republicans admire your ambition. We encourage your dreams. We believe in your future. One thing I learned about America is that if you work hard and play by the rules, this country is truly open to you. You can achieve anything.

Everything I have my career my success my family I owe to America. In this country, it doesn't make any difference where you were born. It doesn't make any difference who your parents were. It doesn't make any difference if, like me, you couldn't even speak English until you were in your twenties.

America gave me opportunities, and my immigrant dreams came true. I want other people to get the same chances I did, the same opportunities. And I believe they can. That's why I believe in this country, that's why I believe in this party and that's why I believe in this President.

Now, many of you out there tonight are "Republican" like me in your hearts and in your beliefs. Maybe you're from Guatemala. Maybe you're from the Philippines. Maybe Europe or the Ivory Coast. Maybe you live in Ohio Pennsylvania or New Mexico. And maybe just maybe you don't agree with this party on every single issue. I say to you tonight I believe that's not only okay that's what's great about this country. Here

we can respectfully disagree and still be patriotic still be American and still be good Republicans

My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans how do you know if you are a Republican? I'll tell you how.

If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government...then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group... then you are a Republican! If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does... then you are a Republican! If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children ... then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope of democracy in the world ... then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen ...if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism ... then you are a Republican!

There is another way you can tell you're a Republican. You have faith in free enterprise, faith in the resourcefulness of the American people ...and faith in the U.S. economy. To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men!

The U.S. economy remains the envy of the world. We have the highest economic growth of any of the world's major industrialized nations. Don't you remember the pessimism of twenty years ago when the critics said Japan and Germany were overtaking the U.S.? Ridiculous!

Now they say India and China are overtaking us. Don't you believe it! We may hit a few BUMPS -- but America always moves ahead! That's what Americans do!

We move prosperity ahead. We move freedom ahead. We move people ahead. Under President Bush, and Vice President Cheney, America's economy is moving ahead in spite of a recession they inherited and in spite of the attack on our homeland.

Now, the other party says there are two Americas. Don't believe that either. I've visited our troops in Iraq, Kuwait, Bosnia, Germany, and all over the world. I've visited our troops in California, where they train before they go overseas. And I've visited our military hospitals. And I can tell you this: Our young men and women in uniform do not believe there are two Americas!

They believe we are one America and they are fighting for it! We are one America - and President Bush is defending it with all his heart and soul!

That's what I admire most about the President. He's a man of perseverance.

He's a man of inner strength. He is a leader who doesn't flinch, doesn't waiver, does not back down. My fellow Americans, make no mistake about it terrorism is more insidious than communism, because it yearns to destroy not just the individual but the entire international order.

The President didn't go into Iraq because the polls told him it was popular. As a matter of fact, the polls said just the opposite. But leadership isn't about polls. It's about making decisions you think are right and then standing behind those decisions. That's why America is safer with George W. Bush as President.

He knows you don't reason with terrorists. You defeat them. He knows you can't reason with people blinded by hate. They hate the power of the individual. They hate the progress of women. They hate the religious freedom of others. They hate the liberating breeze of democracy. But, ladies and gentlemen, their hate is no match for America's decency.

We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children.

We're the America that sends out missionaries and doctors to raise up the poor and the sick. We're the America that gives more than any other country, to fight AIDS in Africa and the developing world. And we're the America that fights not for imperialism but for human rights and democracy.

You know, When the Germans brought down the Berlin Wall America's determination helped wield the sledgehammers. When that lone, young Chinese man stood in front of those tanks in Tiananmen Square America's hopes stood with him. And when

Nelson Mandela smiled in election victory after all those years in prison America celebrated, too.

We are still the lamp lighting the world especially for those who struggle. No matter in what labor camp they slave no matter in what injustice they're trapped -- they hear our call ... they see our light ... and they feel the pull of our freedom. They come here as I did because they believe. They believe in US.

They come because their hearts say to them, as mine did, "If only I can get to America." Someone once wrote -"There are those who say that freedom is nothing but a dream." They are right. It's the American dream.

No matter the nationality, no matter the religion, no matter the ethnic background, America brings out the best in people. And as Governor of the great state of California -- I see the best in Americans every day ... our police, our firefighters our nurses, doctors and teachers our parents.

And what about the extraordinary men and women who have volunteered to fight for the United States of America! I have such great respect for them and their heroic families.

Let me tell you about the sacrifice and commitment I've seen firsthand. In one of the military hospitals I visited, I met a young guy who was in bad shape. He'd lost a leg had a hole in his stomach ... his shoulder had been shot through.

I could tell there was no way he could ever return to combat. But when I asked him, "When do you think you'll get out of the hospital?" He said, "Sir, in three weeks." And do you know what he said to me then? He said he was going to get a new leg ... and get some therapy ... and then he was going back to Iraq to serve alongside his buddies! He grinned at me and said, "Arnold ... I'll be back!"

Ladies and gentlemen, America is back! back from the attack on our homeland- back from the attack on our economy back from the attack on our way of life. We're back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush.

My fellow Americans ...I want you to know that I believe with all my heart that America remains "the great idea" that inspires the world. It's a privilege to be born here. It's an honor to become a citizen here. It's a gift to raise your family here to vote here and to live here.

Our president George W. Bush has worked hard to protect and preserve the American dream for all of us. That's why I say ... send - him - back to Washington for four more years!

Thank you, America -- and God bless you all!

__Premiere at the photokina: Leica Camera AG stages photo
exhibition »24 x 36« to mark 50th anniversary of
Leica rangefinder system

Leica Camera AG, Solms, is showing outstanding pictures of young Leica M photographers at the photokina in Cologne from 28th September to 3rd October 2004. The title of this exhibition, »24 x 36«, alludes to the central importance of the ideal format for 35mm camera film found by Oskar Barnack. The exhibition has been especially organized for this year's photokina, where it will be on view to an international public for the first time. The presentation at the photokina is the start of an exhibition tour. The next stop is the Leica Gallery in Frankfurt, where the photos will be shown for four weeks starting 9th October 2004. The idea behind the exhibition is to mark the three anniversaries of the Leica rangefinder system that the Solms company is celebrating this year: In 1879, 125 years ago, Oskar Barnack, the ingenious inventor of the Leica, was born. 90 years ago, in 1914, he created the basis for his revolutionary camera concept with the Ur-Leica. And in1954, fifty years ago, Ernst Leitz launched the first rangefinder camera, the LEICA M3, on the market.

California’s Economy: A State of Emergency

Recently I came across some articles and reports on the state of California’s economy. The findings will make anyone’s hair stand up on its end. These reports are readily available to the public on California government sites.

As you may already know California’s economy is totally out of control. The poverty rate in California is higher than that of the nation, yet the living expenses for anyone living in California exceeds most of every other American. In other words Californians make less and spend more on basic living expenses.

Anyone who’s been watching the real estate market can agree that it is totally out of control. Anywhere you go in California, especially in the Bay-area, the price of a simple home has sky-rocketed. New houses are more expensive, and less in quality. The price per square foot can exceed as much as $400 to $500 in the Bay, and renters pay as much as $2000 for a one bedroom apartment. At this time the median house price for San Francisco is $526,000 and for the Bay Area is $402,000.

You might say that people in Bay Area make more than the rest of California, and the truth is that they do. The median income for California is about $53,025 while in San Francisco and the Bay Area it ranges from $60,597 to $88,934. Even though these figures seem high, half of all the tax payers in the region earn $30,000 or less, and less than one in every six taxpayers earns at least $100,000. The situation is so bad in the Bay area that they now have a new program called the San Francisco Workforce Housing Fund which provides families with incomes up to $103,320 special mortgage plans to purchase homes up to $475,000. The plan enables someone to finance 97% of the purchase price through a “First Mortgage” and a “Deferred Second Mortgage” of up to 6% to reduce the interest rate on the first mortgage or fund the down payment or closing costs. And these houses can be purchased anywhere within a reasonable commuting distance.

Guess where they go buy their houses? The Central Valley of course!

I must also mention that in the Bay Area a family of four with two working parents would need to earn $61,593 in order to make ends meet and that 2 out of 5 renters spend at least 30% of their income just on rent. All of this means that many families at the median income level struggle to make ends meet, therefore they choose to move somewhere else, (guess where?) and commute.

So now we’re wondering how this affects those who live and work in the Valley. According to the same study, a family of four in the Valley needs to earn at least $43,528 to live without government assistance and make ends meet. The median income for the region is $46,919 and 1 in every 20 taxpayers has an adjusted gross income of at least $100,000, yet more than half of all taxpayers earn $30,000 or less. This means that many families with incomes at or below the median may struggle to meet their economic needs. To make things worse, the influx of Bay Area workers who come to live in the Valley has surged up the prices on housing and everything else. The traffic gets worse and worse everyday, and very seldom does anyone get to see the mountains on the western horizon due to the bad air. The farm land is being desolated, because nobody can afford to keep their workers working the land which makes our produce more expensive.

A couple of weeks ago one of the Central Valley papers had a very interesting article that was discretely criticizing the fact that the housing units being built did not keep up with the increase of population, but if we look at Bay Area’s problems we can conclude that their problems and inadequacies have spilled into the Valley. For example, between 1995 and 1997 the number of jobs in Santa Clara County increased 15.2% while the number of housing units increased by only 1.3%, and it is projected that by the year 2020 the region will gain 50% more jobs but only 20% more housing units.

This information led me to investigate a little further to find out the source of all these problems. Guess what I found? In the California Senate, Bay Area representatives between 1994 and 2000 have made it their war to “protect” the environment and the natural habitat of the Bay Area.

According to the Environmentalists, Bay Area’s legislators are the greenest of them all. These legislators constantly fight against home developments and expansion of housing units into the “sensitive” areas. To protect their image, they encourage concentrated housing, and redevelopment of urban buildings, but the projects they develop for such plans are not realistic and very inefficient. For example, the city of Santa Clara has proposed that 100 apartment units be set aside for low income families. These apartments consist of 2 bedrooms 1 ½ baths and 3 bedrooms 2 baths units. The 2 bedroom apartments rent for the “super low” price of $1230 and the 3 bedroom apartments for $1355. To qualify for this “wonderful” “exciting” “money-saver” housing establishments you must earn at least $29,520 and maximum $57,000 for a three person household in order to rent the 2 bedroom apartment, and for the 3 bedroom at least $32,520 and $68,340 for a five person household. Remember that the median household income for the Bay Area falls somewhere in between $60,597 and $88,934 and a family of four will need to earn at least $61,593 in order to make ends meet without government assistance. Therefore, I must say that somebody has got to go back to their basic Algebra classes, because by my calculations and comparisons I cannot imagine who in his right mind can live in an overcrowded, overstuffed, “low” income apartment and pay $1230 a month, which can be as much as half of their gross income, when in the valley the same apartment can go for $800 (which is still too much in my opinion).

We need to wake up and smell the whiff-of-money-going-down-the-drain, because at this rate California will become a national tragedy. At one time the Associated Press published the following words “California has enacted first-in-the-nation-laws this year... lending credence to the saying that wherever America is going, California will get there first...” Maybe, we should take a long hard look at who is leading this state into the whirlpool of poverty and economic disaster, because if these words are right then the whole nation can follow the footsteps of this once known as the Golden state.

In atentia profesionistilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 02/12/2004 16:31:50
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Richard Kenward, Martin Orpen and Steve Climpson have been working to form a new internet discussion list for professional image creators and suppliers.

The Pro Imaging list is now open and if you are interested please go to:

www.pro-imaging.org

Why another list?
1. We felt that it was time for a professional only list, open to those earning at least 80% of their income from the industry whether they work as a photographer, illustrator, pre press, lab services, manufacturing, etc. In addition others can join if approved.

2. The range of topics is unlimited, as long as its relevant to the industry you can talk about business marketing to OS systems, film choice to ethics.
The list is not moderated.

3. We have taken a stance on Royalty Free images and ask that any member does not, from now on, supply RF images as we believe they damage the industries long term interest.

Details, such as the aims and policies of Pro Imaging will be found on the website. Please read the guidelines on the register page and if you agree to them then sign up. You will need to fill in a short form to include a biography of yourself. This will be in the archives for people to see and therefore we all know who is taking part in the list.

After signing up you'll get an email welcoming you to the list. All the info about posting, unsubscribing, archive access etc will be on that so please retain it for the future.
I hope to see you on the list very soon.

Regards

Steve Climpson

The new priest is nervous abo - de Horia D la: 21/01/2005 17:23:49
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he
asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions.

The new priest hears a couple confessions, then the old priest
asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.

The old priest suggests, "Cross you arms over your chest and
rub your chin with one hand."

The new priest practices this in order to be comfortable with it.

The old priest suggests, "Try saying things like, 'I see,' 'yes,'
'go on,' 'I understand,' and 'how did you feel about that?'"

The new priest says those things, trying them out.

The old priest says, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than
slapping your knee and saying, 'No $h!t! What happened next?'"

Breda Photo Fair

2nd International Photo Fair

From the 23rd to 25th of September 2005 Breda Photo Fair will be presenting an international company of photo gallery’s, art photographs, publishers and specialized antiquarian book dealers. Breda Photo Fair forms part of the photo festival Breda Photo 2005.

A great number of cultural activities take place throughout the year under the late gothic arches of “Onze Lieve Vrouwen” church - the most beautiful building of Breda. Breda Photo Fair has chosen this magnificent location to organize the 2nd International Photo Fair, an unique event in the Benelux whereby quality and diversity are of the highest priority. The set-up of the fair is professional and luxurious and is managed by the same organisation as the antique fair “Antiqui Breda”.

Ambitions
The ambitions are high. Breda Photo Fair will develop into an event that can meets the same level as the photo fairs in London, Paris, Cologne and New York.

Interest
The national and international interest in photography is growing. Museums often buy photo collections, the number of private individuals that collect art photos is rising and an increasing number of gallery’s specialise in art photography. Breda Photo Fair will therefore host a number national and international galleries.

Since the development of photography as an art form many devoted publishers and designers have published expensive and rare photo books. Breda Photo Fair will host a selective group of publishers and dealers in rare book.

New talent
Besides national and international photo galleries, independent art photographers are invited to present themselves to the public and the professional photo galleries. Before the application to attend the fair is approved the collection of the photographer is subject to inspection by an independent vetting committee. An additional condition is that the photographer is not represented by a national or international photo gallery.

Breda Photo 2005
Breda Photo Fair forms part of the festival Breda Photo 2005. In 2003 the festival received a lot of national and international publicity.

With the title ‘Imaginary Beauty’ Breda Photo 2005 starts on the 17th of September and closes five weeks later on the 23rd of October. A series of exhibitions in the “Beyerd”, Breda’s Museum and “Lokaal 01” will focus on this theme. Besides that there are many smaller exhibitions spread over several locations within the boundaries of the city.

The heart of the festival is the Photo Hall which offers an experimental program: short exhibitions, lectures, workshops, performances, links with other disciplines and meetings with photographers and photo collectors. As in 2003 an “Amateur Weekend” and “Youth Project” will be held. A close cooperation is established with the photo museum in Rotterdam and Antwerp. Information is available at www.bredaphoto.nl .
