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.

Unele mai vechi, altele mai noi - de Pasagerul la: 15/06/2006 22:13:57
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "9")
01 . Marriage is not a word. It's a sentence (a life sentence).
02. Marriage is love. Love is blind.
Therefore marriage is an institution for the blind.
03. Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her masters.
04. Marriage is a three-ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring and suffering.
05. Married life is full of excitement and frustration:
In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
In the third year, they both speak and the NEIGHBOURS listen.
06. Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and when you see what the other person has, you wish you had ordered that instead.
07.There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married.
A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced.
08. A happy marriage is a matter of giving and taking;
the husband gives and the wife takes.
09. Son: How much does it cost to get married, Dad?
Father: I don't know son, I'm still paying for it
10. Son: Is it true Dad? I heard that in ancient China, a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her.
Father: That happens everywhere, son, EVERYWHERE!
11. Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.
12. They say that when a man holds a woman's hand before marriage ,it is love after marriage it is self-defense.
13. When a newly married man looks happy, we know why.
But when a 10-year married man looks happy, we wonder why.
14. There was this lover who said that he would go through hell for her. They got married, and now he is.
16. When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.
17. Eighty percent of married men cheat in America,the rest cheat in Europe.
18. After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin.
They just can't face each other, but they still stay together.
19. Marriage is man and a woman become one.
The trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
20. Before marriage, a man yearns for the woman he loves.
After the marriage the "Y" becomes silent.
21. I married Miss Right;
I just didn't know her first name was Always.
22. It's not true that married men live longer than single men,
it only seems longer.
23. Losing a wife can be hard. In my case, it was almost impossible.
24. A man was complaining to a friend:
I HAD IT ALL-MONEY, A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, THE LOVE OF A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, THEN POOF!........ IT WAS ALL GONE.
WHAT HAPPENED, asked his friend.
He says, "MY WIFE FOUND OUT"!!
25. WIFE: Let's go out and have some fun tonight.
HUSBAND: OK, but if you get home before I do, leave the hallway lighs on.
26. At a cocktail party, one woman said to another:
AREN'T YOU WEARING YOUR RING ON THE WRONG FINGER?
The other replied, YES, I, AM. I MARRIED THE WRONG MAN.
27. Man is incomplete until he gets married,
then he is finished.
28. It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job,
he still ends up with the same boss.
29. A man inserted an ad in the paper - WIFE WANTED. The next day he received a hundred of letters and they all said the same thing - YOU CAN HAVE MINE.
30. When a man opens the door of his car for his wife,
you can be sure of one thing - either the car is new or the wife is

--------------------------------------------------
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

Mea culpa! - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/11/2003 05:51:03
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Pe omu` respectiv il cheama Spencer Tunick. Se gasesc pe web multe poze realizate de el.

Coincidenta este ca domnia sa a fost motivul unui schimb de replici in lista de discutii Fotopro, intre mine si un fotograf american, mai putin prezent pe net - pentru ca uraste computerul - si anume Bruce Esbin.

Intii imi scrie Bruce:

===========================

Spencer Tunick, he is the DUDE!!! When someone is able to get 450
naked women to pose for them in Grand Central Station in NYC, then they are the greatest photographer in the world. Until someone is
able to do this on the Moon then his title will remain.

===========================================

La care eu raspund:

> I am very curious to see what pictures it have made...
>
> His site is ... I have not words... go here:
> http://www.spencertunick.com/individuals.html
>
> It is an idiot... This pictures are made by a groggy man... I cannot
> believe.

> Best regards,
>
> Dinu
=============================================
La care Bruce:

Though I was making a joke about Tunick being the "world's greatest
photographer". All joking aside however I do think he is a great
photographer, and I'll tell you why. Photography as you know is just a
tool that allows people to see many different things in a two
dimensional world, a world that despite being two dimensional still
enables us to experience the image on a high information level.

For me the genius of what Tunick does is showing the Homo-Sapien
species as group of animals without the usual protective barrier of
clothing in different and varied environments. Very interesting
environments at least for me. Buenos Aires, New York City, Antarctica,
Vienna, St. Petersburg, etc. all juxtaposed with a single naked human
form or in huge naked groups. It is strangely interesting because it is
something we would never see otherwise especially the groups. In that
sense it is art because it allows us to see something very unique and
thought provoking on the nature of being human.

Some people could say anyone with a camera could take a picture of a
naked person outdoors, and they would be right, however let them try
and go through the effort to organize the large groups of people and
get the permission of international city governments as Tunick
succeeded in doing. So for me Tunick is far from being an "idiot" or a
"groggy man". For me he is a genuine artist with a nice sense of humor who is exploring the human form in an interesting way through the use of photography.
==========================================

Replica mea este:

> All that you write here is a good sense and true. Seeing so, it is OK.
>
> But... the light, the composition, the color, the perspective, the art?
>
> I need only a idea, only a concept? I do not need any professional sense of the light?
>
> I believe that you understand me...
>
> When I see a picture, I give in my mind notes for technique, art (
> composition) and idea.
>
> 0+0+10/3=3,3...

=======================================
Si Bruce continua:

Sometimes the technique is secondary to the concept, sometimes the technique is the concept. What I've found refreshing with Tunick's photography is his relative lack of obvious technique, the almost snapshot like quality of his pictures, as if he just showed up accidently with a Ricoh G1 loaded with color negative film and just snapped a shot of this strangeness before him.
This is what gives it power, the utter banality of technique.

============================================================

Asa ca si intre profesionisti parerile sunt impartite.
Succesul comercial al lui Tunick este insa imens.
Mie personal nu imi place ce face. Asta nu conteaza desigur.

Am vrut sa vedeti insa dincolo de usile inchise cam cum gindesc fotografii...sau unii dintre ei.

Dupa mine, talent este sa iei o cizma si sa o fotografiezi, si sa para mai atragatoare si mai sexy decit o playmate, nu sa umpli o gara cu o suta de femei goale si sa faci glamour.

Despre arta fotografica... de a face bani - de Tibi la: 25/08/2004 14:27:51
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Mi-a placut concizia acestui comentariu la http://luminous-landscape.com/
Pentru a nu va mai obosi cu cautatul l-am copiat aici:

Intrebare:

Hi, I am an instructor at a Fine Art College in FL in the Photography & Digital Imaging dept. and parents want to know how their childern (students) will make a living after they graduate. I am researching that question and would appreciate any help you have. Are their websites that will sell your images to catalog companies or to stores like Walmart (example) and how would you go about pricing your work wholesale?

Raspuns:

Seeing as how this thread has just been "observed" but no one responded, let me offer you my observations. First of all, I am not a professional. I used to be, but not with Fine Art prints, with Weddings and Commercial work.

Now, I figure folks here fall into one of two camps...

1) They really aren't able to survive on selling their artistic images alone and do other things like commercial assignments, photojournalism assignments, and photo seminars to suppliment their income.

2) They really do make a bundle on selling their photos and don't relish revealing their hard earned marketing wisdom to competition in a very small marketplace.

Very few can survive on Fine Art photography. Very Few. Those that do are simultaneously artistic masters and superb business people.

You will probably hate me for saying this, but, anyone entering college for a Fine Arts degree with an attitude of getting wealthy is woefully misinformed. There isn't anything about that curriculum that teaches you how to make it in the real world. On the other hand, you could use the degree to become a truly good photographer, but you are still left on your own for capitalizing on that asset.

I would guess that's not what you want to tell the parents.

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.

The Art of Photography Show 2006 is an international exhibition of photographic art which will take place April 20 - June 4, 2006 at the elegant two-floor gallery within the Lyceum Theatre, located in the historic Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. This venue is perfect for exhibiting a large showcase of world-class photographic art. Arthur Ollman, the Director of the Museum Of Photographic Arts, will be the Judge for this exhibition. The website for the exhibit is www.artofphotographyshow.com. You can view a 4 minute QuickTime clip of the 2004 exhibit here.
http://www.artofphotographyshow.com/pages/trailer.htm

The Prospectus and entry details are available here.
http://www.artofphotographyshow.com/register.htm
The online entry process is very easy, simply filling out a short registration form and then uploading your digital files.
http://www.artofphotographyshow.com/all_about.html
$3,000 in Cash Awards will be given out. Images created via any form of photography will be accepted for consideration (i.e. shot on film, shot digital, unaltered shots, alternative process, mixed media, digital manipulations, montages, etc.), so long as part of the image is photographically created.

Awards
$1,000 1st Place Award
$ 750 2nd Place Award
$ 500 3rd Place Award
$ 250 4th Place Award
$ 100 (5) Honorable Mention Awards
Additional awards will be announced soon!

The Art of Photography Show 2006 will be pursuing a vigorous marketing and publicity campaign, to bring maximum media attention to the artists who are juried into the exhibition. 10,000 people are expected to attend the Show during the eight-week run at the Lyceum Theatre gallery, which is open seven days a week. So, the artists and their work will receive a tremendous amount of exposure by the media and the public.

One of our key aims is to sell the work that is exhibited at the Art of Photography Show 2006. Our great love of this art form (and being photographic artists ourselves) prompts us to 'pull out all of the stops' in order to showcase a truly excellent presentation of photographic art, to elevate and promote this art form, and to provide substantial benefits to the exhibiting artists through the significant exposure the Show will provide and through the sales revenue we will achieve for the artists.

For more information please contact the Curator, Steven Churchill:

model is still being refined, but I can release the news that it will be
the first site where photographers will pay a small fee, less than $1.00,
for each download of their images.

SuckerStock is a natural evolution of stock pricing schemes, from RM
to RF to subscription to micro to our new opportunity, which we are
calling "debit stock." Our test marketing leads us to believe we will blow away
the quantity of downloads from micro sites, as there is an
incentive for the downloader to download as many images as possible in
order to increase income. The photographer benefits, of course, through much
more extensive dissemination of their work; and, as with
all the others RF schemes and models, the photographers who sign up
with us first will be at the top of the pyramid as the innovation hits the marketplace.
There will even be an opportunity for photographers to
pay for the promotion of the site in all the major publications and online
hangouts.

fefe, cred c-a fost in vara lui 2003, stateam inca in casa cealalta... s-a intrerupt curentul cand plecam la antrenament si pana am ajuns acasa s-a rezolvat dar in alte parti a durat mai mult

uite ce chestie

Not-so bad ideas (de pe unul din articolele pe msnbc.com)

Many chefs are super-secret when it comes what they put in their dishes, a but new restaurant in London has taken culinary concealment to a whole new level: Diners eat in total darkness.
British newspaper The Daily Telegraph says customers at Dans Le Noir (French for In The Dark) haven't the faintest idea what they are eating, and that's a good thing.

http://www.danslenoir.com/london/

The idea, based on an already successful venture in Paris — its Web site says French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has eaten-but-not-been-seen there — is that not being able to view what you're consuming enlivens your taste buds.

All needs are met by eight visually-impaired waiters, which we readily admit is an innovative and enlightened use of their capabilities.

"It is a sensual feast," Edouard De Broglie, the restaurant's owner told the newspaper. "You are sitting by people you don't know. You don't judge them by your first sight. You talk to them more in the dark, then you find out what they look like later."

And feel free to belch, you can always blame your dinner companion.

Unfortunately, in 1999 García Márquez was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer, and to this day he suffers under a regimen of treatments, often taking him from Cartagena or Mexico City to clinics in Los Angeles, where his son, filmmaker Rodrigo García, lives.
Setting aside fiction for the time being, Gabo is concentrating on writing his memoirs, the first volume of which was published in 2001 as Vivir para contarla, or To Live to Tell It. Instantly selling out its first print run in Latin America, the volume quickly became the best selling book ever in the Spanish-speaking world. (It was recently published in the United States by Knopf, who will bring out an English translation sometime in late 2003.) The first of a promised set of three volumes, Vivir para contarla details Gabo's life up until 1955. He is currently at work on Volume II, which will focus on the writing and publication of his major works, including One Hundred Years of Solitude.
Hell.......Hot or Cold? - de Horia D la: 15/05/2006 17:53:30
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "9")

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that
the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of
course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.
 
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
 
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
(gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some
variant.
 
One student, however, wrote the following:
 
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we
need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate
at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a
soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.
 
As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different
religions that exist in the world today.  Most of these religions
state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell.
Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not
belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to
Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
 
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because
Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.
 
This gives two possibilities:
 
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase
until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in
Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes
over.
 
So which is it?
 
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my freshman
year that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take
into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number 2
must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already
frozen over. The  corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen
over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct... leaving only Heaven - thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh, my God!"
 
THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

36. The one thing that unites all human beings,regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.
37. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter,is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
38. Your friends love you anyway.

Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark.
A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

(la: PALAVRE DE CAFENEA (Trancaneala- editie speciala))
Due to my recent reintroduction to bachelorhood and a four month absence of a social life, I have started looking towards Hollywood for new ways of meeting women and getting them to like me. I've realized that the most important thing to do is to not have a legitimate well-paying job. This is an absolute no-no and will immediately get you cast as the villian. Also, shaving and wearing nice clothing are both big turn offs, as are full beards. Death threats or murder attempts will greatly increase your chances, as will musical talents.

Here are the things that Hollywood has taught me about how to pick up chicks:

1. Steal cars. Nothing "drives" a woman into "high gear" faster than a man who can use automobile terms in his sexual innuendo.
2. Carry a giant sword, kill thousands of British soldiers, and threaten to kill the woman's husband, the heir to the throne of England.
3. Replace your weak human skeleton with a cybernetic skeleton, travel back in time, and try to kill the woman. When that fails, travel back in time again except this time, protect her son from mercury poisoning.
4. Go to prison for five years and when you get out, rob her boyfriend's casino of one hundred sixty million dollars.
5. Do not have a job. Instead, travel along a river and play guitar. Also, grow your hair into a pony tail and have constant stubble. Having previously been an undercover cop in a high school helps.
6. Kill a New York police captain, run to Italy, find a girl walking down the street, then go tell her father that you want to marry her or you will kill him. When you are through with her, blow her up with a car bomb.
7. Carry a guitar case full of guns and kill every man you see. Apparently, when you are finished, she will have no choice but to be with you.
8. Sneak your way onto a giant boat, make up some bullshit about being able to fly, and then freeze to death in the arctic ocean.
9. Grab a friend, sing a song to a stranger, then follow her into the bathroom and offer to have sex with her on the sink. It also helps if you have previously been a pimp, race car driver, or spy.

and the absolute best way of picking up chicks...

10. If the woman's father doesn't like you, bring him to an orbiting asteroid, set a nuclear weapon, then take off before he can make it back to the ship.

For me being a nature photographer means walking in grass fields at sunrise to take macro photos; being fascinated by the view of a little bug; watching with awe a sunset between the mountains, when the landscape is bathed into the golden light...

I have begun using Photoshop years ago and now I consider it an essential component of my work. Photoshop is an extraordinary tool and I highly recommend to everyone to spend some time learning how to post-process his photos: being able to careful post process a photo is almost as important as being able to master the techniques in the field!

Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra - de ilana gillon la: 22/10/2003 09:14:24
(la: A existat holocaust in Romania?)
Sint in Israel de 40 ani si nu mai vorbesc/scriu bine Romaneste. Asi vrea sa continui in Englezeste.

I reached this site completely by chance and was amazed to see that the situation of the Jews in Romania during the communist era and before is still of such a huge interest.
My father Ing. Aurel Rozei was one of the engineers that were employed in the first Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra project. He was sentenced to death in 1952 for sabotageing the works. Is this trial known now in Romania ? What is the attitude towards it. Any information will be highly appreciated.
