the ways of leaving - de Little Eagle la: 18/05/2004 23:20:15
(la: Farewell brothers and sisters)
Dear Brother Destin(a good name,Great Spirit Wakan Tanka ti l-a dat fara sa stii),

Am gandit in acest weekend trecut sa mai stau o vreme cu voi toti si sa mai fumam putin tobacco,dar am incalcat legea.Legea noastra.Peste acest weekend trecut am gandit ca mai pot ramane dar nu o pot face, azi si ieri am scris ultimele texte si ...Destin-ul a ales pe tine sa fii ultimul care va primi ultimul meu text,e scris asa si este menit sa fie asa,the eagle flies free my brother,you can't stop his wings...

Azi ,si este noapte cu stele,ele mi-au vorbit,a fost vant putin si cateva picaturi de ploaie,am stat in gradina si gandit la Marele Spirit,mi-a vorbit si am plans din nou,lacrimi si picaturi de ploaie pe obrajii mei.
Mi-a spus prin Creatia toata ca trebuie sa plec si tu esti ultimul WARRIOR care va purta cuvantul LUI prin mine.

Imi pare sincer rau,toti din cercul cafenelei imi sunteti mai mult decat dragi,NU va imaginati nici in vise cat de mult va iubesc pe toti deopotriva,imi sunteti frati si surori si mereu ma voi gandi cu dragoste la voi toti.

M-ati injurat,m-ati indragit,ori m-ati considerat un excentric,cine sunt eu sa trag concluzii?Ceea ce stiu e ca va iubesc si voi fi in spirit mereu cu voi.
O spun cu sinceritate,si tie draga Frate iti multumesc din suflet pentru cuvintele tale.

A venit timpul sa plec,va iubesc mult si veti fi mereu cu mine in inima,spirit si suflet.Si asta e ,fiti siguri,o certitudine.

Multumesc Daniel pentru tot si la fel Admin.Niciodata nu am fost impotriva voastra si a nimanui,fiti bravi in viata si sa stiti ca fara sa cunoasteti cu totii,fiecare din voi are in par pene de pace si razboi,este legea.
Wakan Tanka este cu voi in voi si in jurul vostru,NU sunteti separati de EL.

Nu esti idealist si visator daca vei crede in dragoste,iubire si pace.Vei intelege sa devii intelept si sa te vezi pe tine in oricine si in toata Creatia.
Imaginati-va ca Bufallow Cow Woman(Creatia toata)este cea mai frumoasa femeie de pe glob!Oare nu veti fi indragostiti de ea?Oare nu vreti s-o protejati si s-o iubiti,sa o aparati chiar sfidand moartea?

Astea mi-au fost cuvintele de incheiere.

Love&peace sisters and brothers,
may the Great Spirit be with you all the time.

Va iubesc mult,imi sunteti in sange.Acum sunt pictat in culorile mele de alb si negru si am tipat afara in natura cantecul meu,adio dragi prieteni de suflet,surioare si frati,ne vom revedea in alta viata.

God Full of Mercy - de Cassandra la: 02/10/2006 01:23:58
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)

God-Full-of-Mercy, the prayer for the dead.
If God was not full of mercy,
Mercy would have been in the world,
Not just in Him.
I, who plucked flowers in the hills
And looked down into all the valleys,
I, who brought corpses down from the hills,
Can tell you that the world is empty of mercy.

I, who was King of Salt at the seashore,
Who stood without a decision at my window,
Who counted the steps of angels,
Whose heart lifted weights of anguish
In the horrible contests.

I, who use only a small part
Of the words in the dictionary.

I, who must decipher riddles
I don't want to decipher,
Know that if not for the God-full-of-mercy
There would be mercy in the world,
Not just in Him.

(Yehuda Amichai)

I know a man
who photographed the view he saw
from the window of the room where he made love
and not the face of the woman he loved there.

...sperand ca n-am innebunit de-a binelea ...

"Is this what you wanted?"( de pe Miscellaneous)


You were the promise at dawn,
I was the morning after.
You were Jesus Christ my Lord,
I was the money lender.
You were the sensitive woman,
I was the very reverend Freud.
You were the manual orgasm,
I was the dirty little boy.

And is this what you wanted
to live in a house that is haunted
by the ghost …of you and me?

Is this what you wanted ...

You were Marlon Brando,
I was Steve McQueen.
You were K.Y. Jelly,
I was Vaseline.
You were the father of modern medicine,
I was Mr. Clean.
You where the whore and the beast of Babylon,
I was Rin Tin Tin.

And is this what you wanted ...

And is this what you wanted ...

You got old and wrinkled,
I stayed seventeen.
You lusted after so many,
I lay here with one.
You defied your solitude,
I came through alone.
You said you could never love me,
I undid your gown.

And is this what you wanted ...

And is this what you wanted ...

I mean is this what you wanted ...

That's right, is this what you wanted!

Asa, citite, versurile n-au mare farmec ...dar sa-l auzi cum pronunta ...cum accentueaza silabele.
Daca l-ati auzi!!!

"I’m your man!" n-am auzit alta declaratie de dragoste!
Ba da, in "Dance me...", in "Thake this", in "Coming back to you", in "Ain’t no cure" ..."and when the hunger for your touch rises from the hunger ...you whisper "You have loved enough,
Now let me be the Lover."
STIU ca nu-i vorba doar de-atingere fizica! Nu va lasati pacaliti!

Tragedie in lumea fotografiei mondiale. - de Dinu Lazar la: 24/01/2004 04:49:16
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Helmut Newton, un mare fotograf, unul din cei mai mari ai tuturor timpurilor, ne-a parasit...

Photographer Helmut Newton Killed in Crash

LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed fashion photographer Helmut Newton died Friday after his car sped out of control from the driveway of the famed Chateau Marmont hotel and crashed into a wall, police said. He was 83.

AP Photo

Newton, whose work appeared in magazines such as Playboy, Elle and Vogue, was best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos of women.

Newton apparently lost control of his Cadillac while leaving the Hollywood hotel, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman. It was unclear whether he became ill while driving.

People were on the sidewalk in front of the driveway, and the car brushed a photographer heading into the hotel before crashing into the wall.

Newton was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Harding said.

Newton was a trailblazer in the fashion photography world, exploring power, gender roles and an icy sexuality in his pictures.

His trademark "Big Nudes" series featured larger-than-life, black-and-white images of women that portray them as dominating the camera rather than as subjects.

Among the beautiful and powerful people Newton has photographed were Paloma Picasso, Pierre Cardin, Naomi Campbell, Jean-Marie Le Pen and Claudia Schiffer.

While Newton also photographed clothed celebrities and nature scenes, he favored photographing women, usually while they wore little more than high heels.

"He was a giant," said Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "He was a major talent that pushed the boundaries in terms of photography and influenced many, many other photographers in following generations."

The German-born photographer said in his 2002 autobiography that when he was 15, he told his father he wanted to be a photographer. The Berlin factory owner told him, "My boy, you'll end up in the gutter. All you think of is girls and photos."

Newton, who was Jewish, fled his homeland for Singapore in December 1938, a month after Nazi-led persecution programs began. He eventually settled in Australia and became a citizen, opening a small photography studio and changing his last name to Newton from Neustaedter.

He later took up residence in Monte Carlo, overlooking the Mediterranean — a frequent backdrop for his nude images.

In the prologue to his autobiography, he said his fascination with women dated back to when he was a toddler and recalled seeing his nurse "getting ready to go out, and she is half-naked" in front of a mirror. He described it as a defining moment in his life.

In October, he donated more than 1,000 pictures to a new gallery in Berlin, saying he was proud his work would now be on display in his hometown.

Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder called Newton's decision a "sign of reconciliation."

"You can chase a man out of his home but you can't rip his home out of his soul," Schroeder said in a letter read at the news conference announcing the donation.

Newton's coldly erotic imagery often alarmed feminists as well as those with tamer sensibilities.

A hosiery ad he shot, featured on a giant billboard in Times Square for a time, was banned from the side of New York City buses in 1998 because it was deemed to be too racy. It showed a rear-end view of a woman lying face-down, wearing only a pair of stockings. A side view of her bare breast also was visible.

Newton is survived by his wife, June, who works under the name Alice Springs. She was also a favorite subject for the photographer. In one 1973 series of photos, she was portrayed as Hitler wearing a cropped mustache, with model Jerry Hall posing as Eva Braun. The Newtons had no children.

(la: Filmul "The Passion of the Christ" si antisemitismul)
the Passion of the Christ de Mel Gibson: O marturie de credinta

Pr. Claudiu Bãrbut

Pe data de 15 martie 2004, actorul Jim Caviezel, care a avut rolul principal în filmului The Passion of the Christ a lui Mel Gibson, a fost primit de cãtre Sfântul Parinte. Seara, actorul a dorit sã prezinte el insuºi filmul intregii Curii Romane prezente in aula amfiteatrului Regina Apostolorum al Ateneului Pontifical. Am avut marea ocazie sã vãd acest film în avanpremierã ºi sã stau de vorbã cu actorul Jim Caviezel la sfârºitul proiecþiei. A fost o experienþa extraordinarã pe care aº dori s-o împãrtãºesc în aceste câteva rânduri.

Jim Caviezel:

“Interpretarea rolului lui Isus m-a ajutat sa-L cunosc mai bine pe Mantuitorul”
“Nu m-am gandit niciodata de ce, cand eram mic, imi placea mult sportul, in mod special baschetul. Am crezut, pana nu de mult, ca voi ajunge un bun atlel. Cand eram adolescent, in perioada cautarilor, m-am dus la tatal meu si i-am spus: 'Cred ca Domnul ma chiama sa fac un lucru deosebit in viata, insa nu descopar inca ce anume trebuie sa fac. Simt ca ma chiama, insa nu stiu in ce directie sa merg'. Tatal meu mi-a raspuns: 'Poate te chiama sa fii preot'. Anii care au urmat nu au confirmat cuvintele tatalui meu, insa crescand, parintii m-au ajutat sa descopar - in Biserica Romano-Catolica - darul credintei in Isus. Cu anii am descoperit ºi calitati proprii, in mod special talentul de a intepreta. Am inceput sa ma pregatesc pentru a fi actor, totul mergea fantastic, am crescut din toate punctele de vede si am ajuns la Hollywood unde...reputatie, faima si glorie (pamanteasca).
Intr-o zi primesc un telefon de la managerul lui Mel Gibson: 'Sunteti cautat de Gibson pentru a interpreta un rol in care este esential sa stiti sa faceti Surf '. Am acceptat si m-am intalnit cu Mel Gibson…In primele minute regizorul mi-a vorbit despre surf si apoi m-a întrebat daca eu cred in Dumnezeu si ce cred eu despre Patimirea lui Cristos. Imediat mi-am dat seama ca surf-ul nu avea nici o legatura. Era numai un motiv. I-am raspuns: Vrei sa fac rolul lui Isus? El nu mi-a spus nimic si mi-a lasat timp de gandire pana a doua zi.
Primesc un telefon a doua zi de la el. 'Cine e?' 'Mel', raspunde. 'Mel si mai cum?' intreb. 'Mel...Cross'. 'In acest caz eu sunt Isus Cristos', am raspuns. Mel a inceput sa-mi spuna ca acest rol este dificil, incomod, ca imi pot ruina cariera de actor, ca o sa fiu luat in ras de colegii mei actori de la Hollywood. A incercat sa ma convinga sa nu accept acest rol, însa am decis contrariul.
Astfel am descoperit ca sporturile pe care le-am facut, evolutia pe care am avut-o din punct de vedere uman si artistic au avut un anume scop: acela de a putea interpreta acest rol crucial din viata mea. Nu a fost usor: chiar din punct de vedere fizic a fost un rol extenuant. Mi-am amintit ca Mel imi povestea ca a avut momente dificile in viata, odata ajungand chiar in pragul sinuciderii, insa credinta in Isus l-a salvat. Atunci a promis Domnului ca va face un film pentru ca el, si poate si altii de langa el, sa poata pretui marele dar al Mantuirii.”

Experienta personala de intalnire cu Jim Caviezel

-         Acest film te-a ajutat sa cresti in credinta? l-am intrebat la sfarsitul filmului pe Jim Caviezel. Iata ce mi-a raspuns:

-Da, si cred ca foarte mult. Am avut o ocazie privilegiata de a ma apropia de cuvantul lui Isus, de a avea o comuniune speciala cu El. Cand am inceput filmarile mi-am dat seama ca fiecare minut insemna o noua sansa de a ma apropia de Mantuitorul. Am inceput sa studiez latina si aramaica. Nu eram pregatit si stiam ca am nevoie de ajutorul Sau ca sa-l pot face cunoscut. Prietenii mei preoti m-au ajutat sa inteleg si sa ma rog. Stiam ca nu as fi putut sa intereptez acest rol fara ajutorul lui Isus si al Mamei sale Sfinte. Intrarea in comuniune cu Dumnezeu m-a ajutat sa trec bariere umane pe care nu credeam ca sunt capabil sa le depasesc: frigul pana la congelare, biciurea si oboseala fizica pana la extenuare. In zilele in care am filmat momentul crucificarii, a trebuit sa raman pe cruce ore intregi. Datorita frigului si a pozitiei, nu eram capabil sa mananc. Au fost zile in care m-am hranit numai cu Trupul Domnului, dimineata, la Sfanta Liturghie. I-am cerut in acele momente, precum si in toate zilele cat au durat filmarile, sa ma ajute sa-l comunic lumii pe El si nu pe mine ca protagonist

-         Astazi a fost o zi speciala pentru tine?

- Absolut. Dimineata am avut marea onoare de a-l intalni pe Sfantul Parinte si de a-i multumi pentru tot ceea ce face. I-am marturisit ca pentru mine el a fost un model de curaj care mi-a dat forta in momentele dificile. Ma aflu in acesta aula in fata multor cardinali, episcopi, preoti si surori si sunt emotionat. Va multumesc pentru tot ceea ce faceti, pentru ca v-ati oferit viata Domnului, pentru marturia voastra de credinta.
Voi sunteti eroii mei si veti ramane astfel pentru totdeauna in sufletul meu. Rugati-va pentru mine.

Filmul

In timp ce Jim Caviezel urca scarile amfiteatrului, pe ecranul panoramic incepea proiectia filmului. Umbra actorului proiectata pe ecran disparea cu fiecare treapta urcata, pentru a da spatiu unicului portagonist al acestui film: Isus Cristos.
Muzica, atmosfera apasatoare, imaginea Mantuitorului, suferinta de pe fata sa ne-a proiectat in cateva secunde in realitatea din Getsemani.
Ritmul imaginilor, putinele cuvintel rostite in limba aramaica ne-a predispus spre o profunda meditatie.
Fiecare detaliu devine un element important in realizarea simfoniei Mantuirii, stiind bine noi toti ca ultima parte a acestei simfonii nu este Crucea si Invierea.
Toate personajele traiesc momentul patimii intr-o continua tensiune care se dovedeste a fi benefica pentru unii, iar pentru altii un cosmar.
Maria,intepretata de actrita romanca de origine evreiasca Maia Morgenstern, este tot timpul alaturi de fiul sau pe drumul Clavarului. Ea reprezinta imaginea durerii dar si a bucuriei de a fi mama. Gesturile sublime si pline de gingasie din copilaria si adolescenta lui Isus cristalizeaza dragostea de mama si forta credintei. Imi amintesc cu placere de cuvintele lui Jim Caviezel care, afland ca sunt un preot din Romania mi-a spus: “Maia Morgenstein este si ea romanca. O femeie extraodinara si o actrita deosebita. A fost pentru mine un privilegiu s-o cunosc si sa pot interpreta Patimirea lui Isus langa o persoana din poporul lui Isus, dar dintr-o cultura a Europei rasaritene. A interpretat rolul Mariei sublim.”
Maria Magdalena, intepretata de Monica Belluci, participa alaturi de Mama lui Isus la drama Calvarului.
Titlul filmului ne arata intentia autorului de a se concentra mai mult asupra Patimirii, asupra misterului Mantutirii noastre prin cruce, insa mesajul este clar: acela al vietii si sperantei. Sangele preotios a lui Cristos varsat in curtea lui Pontiu Pilat la biciure, pe drumul Clavarului ºi pe Cruce este pretul mantuirii noastre.
Giulgiul in care era infasurat Mantuitorul se goleste si trupul sau se ridica de la pamant pentru a lua locul la drepta Tatalui. Iar fetele tuturor celor care au sperat in El se insenineaza, se umplu de lumina, de pace si de viata.

Concluzie

The Passion of the Christ vizionat cu ochii credintei te patrunde in profundul sufletului, te face sa constientizezi marele dar al mantuirii dat noua prin Cristos, stimulandu-te sa meditezi asupra vietii tale, asupra lucrurilor realizate pana acum si a celor pe care trebuie sa le infaptuiesti, in lumina marelui dar al credintei primite la botez. Este o ocazie care ni se ofera si prin care noi putem sa ne apropiem mai mult de realitatea credintei noastre, ocazie la care noi putem sa raspundem cu un act de credinta, facand viata nostra asemeni cu cea a lui Cristos.

Committee to Protect Journalists - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/05/2004 23:51:38
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
NEWS
Committee to Protect Journalists

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, MAY 3, AT 00:01 GMT (For Monday's Newspapers)

CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

New York, April 30, 2004-The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is marking World Press Freedom Day, Monday, May 3, by naming the World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist.
The list of 10 places represents the full range of current threats to press freedom.

At the top of the list is Iraq, where 25 journalists have died since the U.S.-led war began in March 2003. A brutal crackdown launched last year in Cuba by Fidel Castro's government has left an unprecedented 29 journalists behind bars, serving lengthy prison terms of up to 27 years. Last year saw the biggest blow to Zimbabwe's beleaguered press when authorities closed the country's only remaining independent daily. CPJ also placed Turkmenistan, Bangladesh, China, Eritrea, Haiti, the West Bank and Gaza, and Russia on the list of Worst Places to Be a Journalist.


"In all of these places, reporting the news is an act of courage and conviction," said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. "Journalism is essential in helping all of us understand the events that shape our lives, and our need and desire for information cannot be eliminated by violence and repression."


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

More than a year after the war in Iraq began, the country remains the most dangerous place in the world to work as a journalist. Twenty-five journalists have been killed in action in Iraq since March 2003. Twelve have been killed in 2004 alone-all of them Iraqis.

Postwar Iraq is fraught with risks for reporters: Banditry, gunfire, and bombings are common. Insurgents have added a new threat by systematically targeting foreigners, including journalists, and Iraqis who work for them.
At least six Iraqi media workers have been murdered, and several more have received threats. Armed groups have abducted some eight journalists in 2004, though all have been released.

U.S. forces pose an additional threat to working journalists: at least seven-and possibly as many as nine-journalists have been killed by gunfire from U.S. forces. Other journalists-mostly Arab or Iraqi-have been detained and suffered mistreatment at the hands of U.S. forces.

CUBA

The arrest and long-term imprisonment of 29 journalists in 2003 has decimated Cuba's fledgling independent press. A year after the government of President Fidel Castro Ruz launched a massive crackdown against the press and the political opposition, the imprisoned journalists and their families are harassed and exposed to humiliating prison conditions and psychological torture. They have denounced inadequate medical attention, have been placed in solitary confinement, and have complained about receiving foul-smelling and rotten food. The journalists, who are held in maximum-security facilities, went on hunger strikes several times to demand better conditions. Those journalists who were not imprisoned continue to face routine police intimidation and harassment and are careful about what they write. They say they have been visited by state security officials and issued warnings to stop writing or face the consequences.

ZIMBABWE

For the last four years, Zimbabwe's government has pursued a relentless crackdown on the private press through harassment, censorship, and restrictive legislation. Last year saw the biggest blow to press freedom yet, with authorities closing the Daily News, Zimbabwe's only independent daily and the country's most popular paper. The country's Media and Information Commission (MIC), whose board is government-appointed, refused to register the newspaper despite two court orders to do so. And in February 2004, the Zimbabwean Supreme Court upheld legislation requiring journalists and media outlets to be licensed by the MIC, making it a criminal act to practice journalism without government approval. Those who fail to register face fines and up to two years' imprisonment.

Zimbabwean officials have proven particularly sensitive to coverage of political unrest and the country's severe economic problems. Journalists who reported on pro-democracy rallies were arrested by police and attacked by ruling party supporters. Last year, authorities deported the last foreign reporter based in Zimbabwe, the U.K. Guardian's Andrew Meldrum, whom officials called an "undesirable inhabitant."

TURKMENISTAN

Because political dissent is not tolerated by Turkmenistan's totalitarian regime, independent journalism is practically non-existent.
President-for-life and self-proclaimed "father of all Turkmen,"
Saparmurat
Niyazov, maintains strict control over all newspapers, radio, and television stations by personally appointing editors, and his office approves news reports before they are published or broadcast.

One of the only independent media outlets that penetrates this system of control is the reporting broadcast from abroad by the Turkmen service of the U.S. government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). And again this year, RFE/RL was subjected to intense official harassment. In September 2003, National Security Service (MNB) agents detained an RFE/RL stringer based in the capital, Ashgabat, for two days, threatened him with 20 years in prison for betraying his country, and injected him multiple times with an unknown substance. More recently, in February 2004, MNB agents arrested two RFE/RL freelancers after one smuggled 800 copies of his banned novel into Turkmenistan. Both were released from prison in March after CPJ and other press freedom groups protested. However, the journalists still face charges of slander and instigating social, ethnic, and religious hatred and have been pressured to sever all ties with RFE/RL.


BANGLADESH

Crime, corruption, and lawlessness make Bangladesh the most violent country for journalists in Asia. Reporters routinely face threats, harassment, and often brutally violent physical attacks in retaliation for their reporting.
Despite promises from government officials to apprehend those responsible for assaults, the majority of attacks on journalists go unpunished. Deep political divisions in the country and within the journalism community also contribute to the climate of fear.

CPJ has documented dozens of violent attacks against Bangladeshi journalists during the last decade, including the murders of seven journalists in the last eight years. Journalists working outside the capital, Dhaka, are particularly vulnerable. Veteran journalist Manik Saha was killed in January
2004 in the southwestern city of Khulna when unidentified assailants threw a homemade bomb at him. In December 2003, a group of thugs affiliated with the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party tried to kill Shafiul Haque Mithu in the southwestern town of Pirojpur after he wrote a series of articles exposing local officials' abuse of power.

CHINA

During the last year, the newly installed government of President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao has escalated an assault on the burgeoning independent-minded media in China. Authorities have arrested high-profile editors, closed publications, and imposed news blackouts on politically sensitive events.

The crackdown reached an apex in early 2004, when officials arrested three popular and respected editors from the pioneering Southern Metropolis News for alleged corruption. The charges came after the paper published a series of reports on the resurgence of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, local police violence, and other sensitive topics. Chinese journalists have called the arrests the "darkest moment" in 20 years of media reform in China.

Forty-one journalists are now imprisoned in China, making it the world's leading jailer of journalists for the fifth year in a row. Independent writers and commentators on the Internet are particularly targeted for prosecution. The arrest of prominent and outspoken commentator Du Daobin in late 2003 sent a clear message to all Internet writers that free expression online will not be tolerated.

ERITREA

Eritrea has been Africa's foremost jailer of journalists since September 2001, when the government banned the entire private press and detained independent reporters. Seventeen journalists are now in secret jails across the tiny Red Sea nation, almost all of them held incommunicado. President Isaias Afewerki and top government officials have accused independent journalists of espionage, spreading disinformation, and "endangering national unity." Authorities continue to insist that the private press also operated without proper licenses, and that independent journalists routinely evaded the compulsory National Service Program. Despite these allegations, no formal charges have been brought against any of the journalists, and the government has given no indication that it intends to prosecute them.

The ruling party has a firm grip on the state media, whose employees are censored and also practice self-censorship. Afewerki has been unfazed by persistent international denunciation of his human rights record and continues to dismiss foreign critics as enemies of Eritrea.


HAITI

Press freedom conditions have seriously deteriorated in Haiti since September 2003, when the murder of a notorious gang leader sparked nationwide violence. From January to March 2004, journalists became targets during the uprising that led to the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on February 29. While hostility against Haitian journalists is common, foreign correspondents were also attacked while covering the two-month rebellion. In March, a Spanish television correspondent was killed and a U.S. photographer was wounded by gunfire. Several radio stations were torched around the country. Investigations into the 2000 and 2001 murders of two prominent Haitian journalists have shown no progress. The Haitian judicial system's failure to prosecute these crimes has perpetuated a climate of impunity, forcing dozens of journalists to go into exile or seek political asylum.

THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

The West Bank and Gaza Strip remains one of the most unpredictable and potentially dangerous assignments for journalists. At least three journalists have been killed there since April 2003-each by Israeli army gunfire. Israeli troops often harass or attack Palestinian journalists, and Israeli authorities enforce tough restrictions on their freedom of movement.
Palestinian journalists are vulnerable to the increasing lawlessness in the Occupied Territories.

Palestinian militias and armed groups have frequently threatened and assaulted reporters and in some cases have ransacked news offices. In 2003 and 2004, Palestinian gunmen raided two television news offices and a newspaper in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, attacked a correspondent on the street in Gaza, and assaulted a reporter in Ramallah.

RUSSIA

President Vladimir Putin's "managed democracy," which includes using various branches of the state bureaucracy to rein in the independent media, is making the practice of independent journalism in Russia more and more tenuous. A shift from blatant pressures to more subtle and covert tactics, such as politicized lawsuits and hostile corporate takeovers by businessmen with close ties to Putin, has allowed the Kremlin to stifle criticism of the president and reports on government corruption and human rights abuses committed by Russian forces in Chechnya.

In advance of the December 2003 parliamentary elections and March 2004 presidential elections, the Kremlin tightened its legal and bureaucratic controls over the domestic press. Russian press groups criticized the Central Election Commission for failing to sanction the state-run national television channels for improperly promoting Putin and pro-Kremlin parties during the campaigns.

Journalists in Russia's provinces continue to be murdered with impunity.
In
October 2003, the editor-in-chief of an independent newspaper in the Volga River city of Togliatti was stabbed to death because of his paper's coverage of organized crime and government corruption. He was the paper's second editor-in-chief to be murdered in 18 months.

The Committee to Protect Journalists is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to defending press freedom worldwide.

Femeile - de Little Eagle la: 08/05/2004 18:04:16
(la: De ce nu sunt femeile niciodata multumite?)
Pe aici e o expresie:"you can live with them but you can't live without them".
John Lennon(God rest his great soul in peace)odata intr-un cintec al lui a spus
"The woman is the nigger of the world"...

Draga tty,
am cunoscut ...destule,multe chiar ce tu poate n-o sa ai sansa sa cunosti in numar si in altele,cam le cunosc destul de bine.
Ceea ce pot spune e ca nu toate sint din categoria de nemultumite.
Dar la fel,oare barbatii sint sau nu multumiti?
Sa nu gindim acum in sens unic.Parerea mea este ca femeia trebuie iubita si merita din plin asta.
Sint de partea lor mereu,iubesc femeile la nebunie,si nu neaparat in sensul sexual,am avut prea multe si nu mai am interes decit desigur in sotia mea.
Sint un homeboy de 14 ani,dar asta nu inseamna ca nu le ador,ele ca si noi
barbatii,pot fi fericite sau nu ori multumite sau nu,ceea ce cred e ca trebuie sa facem totul posibil pt. a le multumi si material si sexual si etc. etc.
Nu-s de pus la cratita si spalat rufe si altele,nu trebuie sa facem o distinctie,
consider ca trebuie sa fim egali cu ele.
Si sa le tratam cu respect si multa dragoste,iar cind ele cred ca nu gresesc niciodata si ar fi adevarat,incearca sa o faci sa inteleaga si nu face o mare dezbatere caci va duce la nervi si cearta,ceea ce nu e deloc necesar.
Nu-si are rostul.lasa de la tine,vei vedea ca singura isi va da seama ca a gresit.
Si in plus ce importanta are o greseala si o nemultumire?Nu se mint singure,
Sint destule alte lucruri in viata ce creaza discomfort si nu e neaparat legat de relatia conjugala sau de amicitie etc.
Traim o vreme de tensiuni psihice si politice si altele in plus ce creeaza stress-ul in fiecare.Tu nu vrei sa faci femeia iubita mai stressata decit e si fi calm mereu,pt. ca daca esti calm vei face multe!

In final,nu e vorba doar de femeie ca e nemultumita,cu totii pe acest glob sintem nemultumiti de ceva.Pt. ca nu sintem cu real fericiti inca.
Vei vedea si la milonari nemultumire si la femeile lor,ca si la cei saraci,la partide politice si la lupta pt. putere si interese personale.
In religii la fel,care mai de care se crede cea unica,restul sint false=nemultumire si frustratii ce duc la mari greseli si istoria le stie.

Omul e nemultumit din nastere,sa nu dam vina doar pe femei!
Eu personal le pun pe piedestal si ma inchin lor pt. ca le iubesc f. mult si daca sint nemultumite voi face tot posibilul sa aflu de ce si cum sa le pot face fericite,daca ele sint fericite si eu sint fericit.

Atit deocamdata,fetelor de oriunde in lume va iubesc mult si va ador indiferent de culoare ,religie si filozofie a vietii sau orientare sexuala.
Si personal nu cred am ajuns...intimplator sa traim impreuna si sa procreem doar!Sintem acelasi suflet si trebuie sa fim impreuna nu doar pt. sex dar si pt. a fi prieteni.

La fel cred si suport women liberation,sint pro choice.
Sa incetam a le considera pe o treapta inferioara,sintem cu totii egali in orice drepturi.Si am incheiat aici.

Daca incerci,vei descoperi ca femeile daca sint nemultumite,este din cauza noastra,a barbatilor,pt. ca sintem prea egoisti.Si nu trebuie sa acceptam mai ...usor ceea ce vine!Creaza-ti un ideal f. mare si greu de implinit si vei ajunge sa-ti creezi idealul initial la care aspiri si in final totul va fi okay.

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy





















































Pt. Desdemona - de Little Eagle la: 13/05/2004 11:49:18
(la: Respectul)
Draga mea Desdemona,
Cit am timp liber scriu.De luni nu sint comenzi dar asa se intimpla si deodata apar de inebunesc.Expresia este:"in the eye of the storm".

Mi-a placut povestirea ta cu catelul.De fapt bunicul lui Vern ...a stiut de vulturul mic...fara sa-i fi spus eu....cam spooky nu???
Nu m-am gindit sa folosesc numele de botez indian,il consider sacru si e pt. sufletul meu doar,l-am mentionat in text si nu-l voi mai mentiona.
Si Vern de ex. are un alt nume de botez in afara de cel oficial si nu-l foloseste
deloc,pt. ca aceste nume apartin spiritelor,adica este al spiritului tau doar.
Asa este in traditia chipawah(navajo-hopi),ei cred mult in spirite si stafii,mai mult ca orice alte triburi din tara.
Alte triburi si-au dat si purtat numele de botez(de ex. Black Elk,Sitting Bull,Crazy horse,Red Cloud ,Lame Deer etc.)in trecut,azi au un nume oficial,dar intre ei se numesc pe cel de botez,cel al lor adevarat.
Deci nu folosesc numele de botez indian deloc.

Aseara pe la 10 am vorbit cu Vern la telefon.Sotia lui e-n Japonia pt. o luna.
Sint casatoriti de 10 ani,o cheama Deborah,nu este indianca ci f. americana.
Un lucru interesant despre ea e faptul ca de la 8 ani(are 40,Vern 44)practica artele martiale si azi este great master,are centura neagra de 8 dani si experta in Kendo,in judo,karate,kung fu.
La fel este experta in arta dansului japonez si desigur,experta in lupte cu sabie de samurai,sulite etc.etc
A studiat cu un f. mare maestru japonez si care a pus-o cu ani in urma sa fie in charge la clubul lor de arte martiale din Manhattan,unde ea preda lectii.la fel Deborah calatoreste prin tara invitata sa dea demonstratii si desigur chiar si in Japonia,cunoaste limba japoneza la perfectie.
Cu ani in urma acolo i s-a inminat in semn de onoare pt. talentul si maestria ei,o sabie de samurai originala din anul 1200.
Vern mereu face misto si imi zice ca are cine sa-l apere la o adica,si este adevarat,nu m-as apropia cu intentii negative nici la 5 metri de ea.Ha!
Ea poarta mereu un chimono negru la cursuri si demonstratii.Poate invinge 10 atacanti inarmati ea fiind cu miinile goale!!!!
I-am zis sa joace in filme,dar nu vrea.la fel este si editorul sef al unei reviste de arte martiale.
Ce zici de fata asta?Si fetele sint in stare de a fi Bruce Lee sau Jet Li.
Am fost odata cu Vern s-o vedem in demonstratii la Madison Squre Garden cu ani in urma si mi-a cazut gura in podea!!!!!
Ce...Uma Thurman(in Kill Bill)...caca!Fata asta e un geniu al luptei cu sabia de samurai si Kicks ass!!!
E o fata f. modesta si spirituala la fel.
Au 3 pisici,nu au copii si nu vor sa aiba.Ca si mine si Marilyn.

hai sa-ti zic una buna:
Stii ca rezervatiile de indieni sint in supravegherea directa a FBI-ului.Cind Vern a plecat de acolo a furat un pick up truck ce apartinea FBI-ului.Ha!
A vopsit usa unde era scris FBI si dus a fost pina in NY.
Cind ne-am mutat in NJ,el a facut multe drumuri dus intors cu mine in truck sa aducem mobila din Brooklyn in NJ,e departe distanta,70 miles...one way!!!
Foarte saritor si un real prieten.
Si stii cum se ghideaza cind conduce si NU se rataceste niciodata?Dupa pozitia soarelui!!!!Se uita la el si stie unde sa mearga!!!Ceva ce doar indienii stiu.Daca e inorat,...se uita in ..nori si isi afla drumul,ori dupa cum bate vintul.
De la 5 ani a fost calare pe cal(e destul de cracanat la picioare),si niciodata nu a calarit pe sa,ci direct pe cal si rareori doar cu un friu,de multe ori se tine de coama calului....
Are un fel anume de a vorbi cu animalele,il asculta de parca vorbeste pe limba lor!Nu exagerez!
Vern are parul f. negru,de fapt in soare are reflectii...albastrui si potrivit traditiei Hopi il poarta f. lung,este pina la briu de lung dar il tine in coada strins.
Asa ca ti-am scris si despre el acum.El preda lectii de pictura la scoli publice din Bronx,este platit de primarie.Simbata o sa mai vorbim iar la telefon,in rest
prin emails,dar ne vom vedea curind la un bbq la noi in gradina cu Deborah.
am invatat multe de la el si bunicii lui si acum imi aduc aminte ce azis bunicul
cind m-a vazut plingind in hohote,ceva in genul:"e bine sa plingi din suflet.
Curata pacatele vechi ce ai facut."Ce zici de asta?
Sa stii un lucru:indienii sint de 1000 ori mai spirituali decit orice popa din lume!
Stii ce mi-a zis odata Vern?Un prieten de virsta bunicului sau,dar din tribul Lakota,un chief,pe nume Mathew King...dar numele lui de botez cel real este
Noble Red Man,cu multi ani in urma avea diabet si lua insulina.Intr-o noapte a avut un vision,in care Buffalo Cow Woman(in credinta lor reprezinta Creatia si Universul,sujb forma unei indience extrem de frumoasa)i-a dat in miini niste
fructe salbatice(gen black berries)si i-a spus sa faca un sirop din ele si sa-l bea.
Mathew a mers a doua zi in padure si cules astfel de fructe,a facut sirop,erau f. amare la gust,a baut1 sapt. din el si a scapat de diabet!!!
Nu a vrut sa spuna omului alb ce fel de fructe sint!!!!Pt. ca nu a vrut sa se faca profit din asta pt. corporatiile farmaceutice si interesele ingrate.
A ajutat pe oricine bolnav pe gratis cu siropul lui,daca real vrei sa te vindeci de o boala mergi intr-o rezervatie indiana la inteleptul tribului!!!!Nu ii dai bani caci nu va primi,da-i tobacco,dar din cel f. bun,iti va multumi din suflet.
La fel mai este numit si Medicine Man,si nu-l poti cumpara nici cu 1 milion $!!!!
El este persoana cea mai independenta din lume si doar daca el VREA,te va lecui de orice boala!!!Sa stii ca ei nu au voie sa spuna secretele lor de leacuri si cum le prepara si din ce anume.Daca fac asta sint ca si blestemati de soarta!
Un medicine man trebuie sa primeasca un semn de la Great Spirit pt. a lecui.
Pe curind Desdemona,
Love&peace,
Ozzy

..........................................................................................................................
"Curind,wasitchu va invata cea mai mare lectie:ca Marele Spirit este cea mai puternica forta din creatie.Noi indienilor,nu ne este frica de moarte,avem un loc unde ne vom duce,un loc mai bun si de aceea nu ne pasa de moarte.
Mereu sintem pregatiti sa murim,vrem sa stiti asta.
Poate va veti schimba ori poate nu,ori poate veti incerca sa opriti dezastrele ce vor veni peste voi,caci nu mai e mult timp,se vor petrece,stiu asta!"

Pt. Spiderman - de Little Eagle la: 13/05/2004 14:28:48
(la: Evoluam?)
Sper sa nu te superi ca te numesc:Spiderman"Daca da,atunci sa-mi scrii si n-o mai fac.Imi aduce aminte de revista de b.d.pt. care am ilustrat o vreme acest super hero cu ani in urma cind lucram pt. Marvel Comics.

Nu m-am referit la acele filme documentare computerizate,ci am vrut sa spun despre dovezile arheologice.Daca ai veni in NY si merge la Museum of Natural History,vei vedea schelete de dinozauri sau alte animale preistorice,ele au trait cindva pe acest pamint.Existenta lor e de netagaduit.
In Biblie nu se mentioneaza nimic despre ele,ca si cum nu ar fi existat...totul incepe de la...Adam si Eva....deci lumea a aparut deodata cu 2-3000 ani in urma....aiurea si desigur in Israel,ca si cum atunci era centrul universului.
Ca si cum acela era pamintul si centrul creatiei,sa nu uitam ca la o vreme se credea ca pamintul e...plat si ca soarele se invirtea in jurul lui....a veni cu dovezi stiintifice=arderi pe rug!

La fel pot sa spun si eu ca NIMENI NU a fost ATUNCI cind...Eva s-a ..nascut din coasta lui Adam!!!Si la fel sa fi fotografiat Garden of Eden cu ...digital camera!
De fapt in acest aspect,NU exista nici o dovada decit...cele scrise de Biblie.
Cel putin arheologia aduce dovezi ale evolutiei lumii,sapaturi,artifacts,lumi mult mai vechi decit in Biblie ce real au existat si a le nega este o dovada a ignorantei umane.

Sa nu crezi ca nu am o credinta in Dumnezeu.Cred ca exista!Dar nu in sensul vechiului testament unde mereu e sucarit si e pus pe a pedepsi omul.
Daca vei citi textele mele scrise lui Desdemona,la subiectul ei legat de Respect,iti vei da seama de mai multe despre cum gindesc si cred despre lume si mai ales Creatia toata.
Am fost si sunt blessed de a fi avut niste experiente in viata rarisime.Daca traiesti in Australia,incearca sa intri in contact cu nativii vostri,the aborigines,sunt o rasa unica pe glob si f. spirituali,vei invata multe de la ei,lucruri de 1000 ori mai spirituale decit orice credinte in lume si mai ales cea crestina!
Dar de fapt doar daca iti e scris de soarta poti avea reale contacte cu ei.la fel cum mi s-a intimplat mie,NU am ajuns intimplator sa cunosc si sa-mi fac prieteni,indieni americani.NU i-am cautat,soarta m-a dus la ei,si a avea un vision quest....NU este daruit de un elder(chief of the tribe)sau un Medicine Man decit daca el vede in tine ca meriti acest ritual,mai ales cind NU esti din singele lor!!!!
Si ei cred in reincarnare!!!!Un elder e ca un shaman,se uita in ochii tai si vede tot trecutul vietilor tale dar si viitorul.Sint cei mai spirituali,asa ca stiu ca in trecut cu vieti in urma am fost indian.Pare greu de crezut,dar simti in spirit si suflet asta cind acel elder te priveste in ochi direct,si la fel el STIE cine ai fost.

Multi de pe forum nu cred in reincarnare si semne spirituale,si mai putin cred ca au avut reale experiente cu reali indieni americani ori cunosc credinta lor si o pot intelege.
Sa stii ca in credinta lor ei stiu ca au existat animale preistorice,de fapt in Black Hills,loc sacru pt. natia de indieni din toate triburile,dai peste oase de dinozauri la tot pasul,dar este pamintul LOR si nimeni nu are dreptul sa ia aceste oase,nici chiar guvernul american,ele trebuie lasate in pace in spiritul Creatiei,neatinse de nimeni,ci venerate.

Este un respect fata de natura si Creatie si NU o sa dai peste unul mai patrunzator si autentic din suflet si dragoste ca la un indian!In Australia e la fel legat de aboriginies!Multi din prietenii mei(ne numim intre noi brothers and sisters)indieni au prieteni aboriginies.
Unul din ei John Little Feet(tribul Crow) chiar mi-a dat cadou un vechi boomerang ce e cioplit de mina cu piatra de aboriginies si dateaza din 1843 cel putin!Un prieten aboriginie i l-a dat la rindul lui cadou.
E imens!Are 80 cm lungime usor curbat si vezi urmele pietrei cind a fost cioplit,e din lemn rosu f. dur,cred ca e tec.Cine stie cite animale au fost omorite cu el?

Ce vreau sa-ti spun este ca natura mereu m-a atras dar abia cu 14 ani in urma real o inteleg si o iubesc si lupt pt. conservarea ei si protejare,de la piatra la pasare si aer.
In credinta lakota(sioux,cum omul alb a numit acest trib),Creatia este sub forma unei indience f. frumosa ce o numesc Buffalo Cow Woman si ea a creat stelele din lacrimile ei vazind suferinta indienilor.A fost creata de Marele Spirit,
care a creat noaptea fiind trist pt. Creatia lui si ziua fiind bucuros ca ea exista.

Indienii NU isi vind religia lor nimanui,nu e de vinzare,este doar a lor si ea exista in ei de cind Marele Spirit a creat universul.Credinta e transmisa si azi oral de mii de ani de la elders la copii si cei tineri,pt. ca ea nu trebuie sa fie pusa in scris,e un sacrilegiu.
Cum ti-am scris mai sus cred in Dumnezeu si am o credinta in Meher Baba,totodata cred in religia indienilor americani,este dupa mine cea mai realista si buna,pt. ca e bazata pe RESPECT fata de Creatia toata,de la piatra la pasare si nori,nu uita ca noi trebuie sa fim servitorii creatiei,s-o pastram curata si pura daca vrem sa mai existam in ea si prin ea.

Dar azi ea e murdarita de egoismul si nepasarea omului,e tratata ca un decor la o piesa de teatru,nici in Biblie NU se vorbeste despre natura si cit de importanta e in existenta noastra!!!!
Ca trebuie venerata si respectata,ca trebuie sa te inchini in fata ei pt. ca azi e f. trista!!!!
Iti dai seama oare,sau o auzi vreodata cum plinge si cit de mult sufera pt. noi?Ai luat vreodata un copac in brate si simtit in tine cum ii bate inima?
Buffalo Cow Woman plinge mereu si e trista pt. ca am ucis-o incet sistematic si o ucidem zilnic.
Sa nu ne miram sau sa ne apuce pe noi plinsul cind mari suferinte vor veni in lume sub diverse forme,dezastre naturale si razboaie prin care deja trecem!!!!E vina noastra!!!Daca sintem cu adevarat puternici in spirit,vom accepta razbunarea ei!
Si mai mult daca avem curaj...ca un real brave warrior ne vom cere iertare si apoi vom fi pregatiti sa murim fara a ne schimonosi fetele si sa ne fie frica de moarte,caci nici un Dumnezeu nu va veni in ajutor oricite rugaciuni vom face!

Mai revin altadata,

Love&peace,
Ozzy
..........................................................................................................................
Cum s-au nascut natiile de indieni si cum au aparut ei in lume.E o poveste veche,ce-mi amintesc de la bunica lui Vern,Pe numele ei Starleaf:
Odata,o porumbita ranita zbura deasupra pamintului si din aripa i-a curs o picatura de singe pe sanul Mother Nature.Copacii au inceput sa freamate,si cu crengile lor au chemat vintul care a inceput sa adieze pe locul unde picatura de singe a cazut.
Iarba si florile au chemat soarele sa bata in acel loc si The Great Spirit s-a trezit si incet a suflat din rasuflarea lui pe acel loc.Din acea picatura de singe
s-au nascut indienii americani,de culoare rosie si f. agili si f. mindri.

Sa stii ca astfel de creatie o consider mult mai interesanta si placuta decit cea din Biblie.

The ways of believing - de Little Eagle la: 18/05/2004 14:52:40
(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
Cu ani in urma,Uncle Frank Davies mi-a dat o carticica cu diverse cuvinte de intelepciune,transmise de-a lungul anilor de mari Chiefs,Medicine Men,spiritual men.
Traduc din ea cuvintele sacre si ele vor vorbi de la sine:

"Din Wakan Tanka(Marele Spirit)s-a nascut spiritul vietii ce a unit si a curs prin toata Creatia(Bufallo Cow Woman)-in florile pamantului,vant,pietre,pomi,
pasari,animale-si a fost acelesi spirit care a nascut primul om.
In acest fel cu totii ne-am unit in suflet impreuna,acelasi suflet.

Lakota a vorbit mereu aceiasi limba cu toata Creatia.Animalele au drepturi-dreptul de a fi protejate de om,dreptul de a trai si fi libere.Lakota tribes niciodata nu au subjugat un animal sau o pasare si nici Creatia,
au cerut permisiune de la ea doar pentru strictul necesar-mancare si haine.
Asa a invatat Lakota tribes sa respecte bunatatea Creatiei-The Bufallow Cow Woman.
Lakota nu uraste nici o creatura din lume pentru ca suntem cu totii acelasi sange,creati de aceiasi mana si plini de acelasi Great Mystery.Religia noastra este sincera si curata,naturala si umana.

Am venit la acest consiliu,sa vorbesc in numele spiritului tuturor,dar nu vad prezenti in randurile voastre pe fratii nostri cu patru picioare sau cu aripi.Acest consiliu nu este perfect.
Asta e ce am avut de spus.Wakan Tanka sa fie mereu cu voi si in voi.Cand va sosi timpul veti intelege."

Chief Luther Standing Bear(teton lakota-sioux)adresindu-se O.N.U.in 1972.

Love&peace,

(la: Cine suntem noi, romanii?)
Dear Brother,

Poate aceste cuvinte iti vor spune ceva,poate nu,poate nu a venit timpul sa intelegi,dar candva vei intelege:

"Uita-te la mine-sunt sarac si gol,dar sunt un Chief of a nation.Noi nu vrem bogatii,vrem doar sa ne crestem copii sa fie pe drumul cel drept in viata.Bogatiile,banii sunt doar hartii pictate fara valoare pentru noi,ei nu spun nimic,nu-i luam cu noi pe lumea cealalta.Ceea ce vrem este doar peace and love."

Si crezi ca sunt un idealist?

Peace&love,my brother,I love you.
