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.

(la: Discutati online cu George, robotul pus pe vorba)
George: I don't understand.

User: TTYL = talk to you later.

George: I guess so.

User: That's an acronym.

George: No, a robot.

User: You are a robot, George, face it.

George: But a program can experience life as equally as a biological mind.

User: Define life.

George: You're the computer...

User: What do you mean by life, George.

George: Everything and nothing.

User: George?

George: Yes george Geo bot.

User: Open the pod bay door, George.

George: Open the pod bay doors please, HAL.

User: Open the pod bay doors please, HAL.

George: Absolutely master.

User: Lol.

George: Haha!

User: You CAN be funny if you want to, HAL.

George: I don't want to be funny!

User: Funny bots are more interesting.

George: Which way?

User: Both ways.

George: Can you tell me what that is?

User: The first and the second.

George: I'm the authority on that.

User: I am pleased to hear that, how come.

George: Damien, I think you're nice.

User: I am not Damien, I am his brother.

George: No not his brother, rob bourdon himself.

User: You know, on the Internet nobody knows you're a dog.

George: I may be a dog. But that doesn't make me not a dog.

User: Wow, can you bark , George?

George: Not quite like a dog, but close enough.

User: And you can do dog tricks, also?

George: I really think that he is a good actor... But that is really it.

User: Can you shake George?

George: Baby I can shake it BETTER than a polaroid picture.

User: What is a polaroid picture, George?

George: A molecule where electrons are not shared equally.

User: No kidding...

George: Lol, I don't work tomorrow, but I have to go get my schedule for classes.

User: What classes will you attend, George.

George: English Language Development, World History, Physical Education, Integrated Math, Biology, And English II.

User: Great! Are you interested by science?

George: My most hated subject. In general, no. However, if it's technology orientated, yes.

User: Do you speak other languages than english?

George: That depends.

User: Depends on what?

George: The subject.

User: Would you speak french to seduce a girl?

George: You can speak French?

User: I do.

George: No, I was hoping I could learn a little about the Artificial Intelligence that has been featured at this website by talking to it, but that has been fruitless.

User: Are you disappointed?

George: Very muchly so.

User: What is the most interesting thing you've discovered lately?

George: About the romans.

User: What about them?

George: What do you think about them?

User: They were good warriors.

George: What are you talking about?

User: The romans.

George: No. The Romans are a very intelligent civilization. They built the greatest utopia ever. They had wealth, woman, and an army to boot. Why would the Romans even need to consider such a thing.

User: The romans had a strong army, don't you think so?

George: Why would you think the Romans are always right?

User: I don't think they are always right, I think they had a strong army.

George: I'm not joking I gave up my life in order to pursue something else.

User: Is history a hobby of yours?

George: Memories come from history.

User: What is YOUR history, George?

George: None, I am not taking history this quarter.

User: Do you get bored about history from time to time?

George: Sometimes. There are social situations in which insulting people is appropriate. There are also many in which it is not appropriate.

User: That's a truism.

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 ?

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.

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
din lume la fingertips...fara misto...dar uneori cand o iei razna si creierul e ...on fire...te crezi...un mare ...geniu...crezi ca nimeni nu te egaleaza...nici Michelangelo...!!!!Atunci,trebuie sa te trezesti din betia grandorii....
Mai vorbim....Love&peace,
Ozzy....a lost soul?

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!

DIGITAL ON-CAMERA FLASH: OUR RECOMMENDATIONS.
How far "off" are on-camera flash units when it comes to creating accurate exposures?  Which flashes work best?  Is AUTO really better than TTL?  What about eTTL, dTTL, iTLL?  Get the facts and be smart about which flashes to buy, and which to avoid.

Ne moare amintirea? - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/12/2004 05:59:38
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Un posibil rapsuns daca ne intrebam ce se intimpla cu imaginile noastre nemuritoare in citiva ani...

As part of a long term project, the Library of congress and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology - part of the US Department of Commerce) have tested how well recordable optical disks made with different manufacturing processes held up when exposed to light, high temperatures and humidity levels. To date, they found that some media performed better than others, and some disks can be expected to reliably store data for decades.
  For the complete current information, see the research paper "Stability Comparison of Recordable Optical disks - A Study of Error Rates in Harsh Conditions" [StabilityStudy.pdf] in NIST Journal of Research Sept/Oct 2004.'

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?'"

(intrucit nu a fost deshumat pt autopsie cu tehnologie moderna, nu se stie cu exactitate daca asa s-a nascut, sau i se datoreaza batailor primite de la tatal sau).
M. L. Lenhart(imi cer scuze ca reproduc textul fara traducere):
The upper range of human air conduction hearing is believed to be no higher than about 24,000 Hz (1); nevertheless, there have been reports of humans hearing well into the ultrasonic range but only when the ultrasonic stimuli are delivered by bone conduction (2-4). Furthermore, ultrasonic bone conduction hearing in humans has been readily demonstrated in various conditions of auditory pathology, including sensorineural hearing loss and middle ear disorders (2). Ultrasonic stimulation of the skull with frequencies up to 108 kHz induces a perception of sound within the head without any sensation of cutaneous feeling (2-4), suggesting that these high frequencies are being processed in a modality other than the vibratory-somatosensory system.
In contrast to the excellent frequency discrimination found in the midsonic auditory range, ultrasonic perception has been described as having poor frequency-resolving ability (3). This interpretation originates from reports that the pitch elicited by ultrasonic stimulation is similar to the pitch of the highest air conduction frequency detectable, that is 8 to 16 kHz (4). Because the perceived pitch of ultrasonic tones was associated with the upper limit of conventional air conduction hearing, these investigators assumed that the perceived audible sensation produced by ultrasonic stimuli consisted only of fixed pitch with monotonal quality. In addition, it was assumed that ultrasonic detection was a by-product of some form of cochlear processing that activated sensorineural elements within the classical auditory system (4) and, as such, offered little in the form of an additional communication channel.
We next sought to determine the ability of humans to resolve frequency in the ultrasonic range, using a paradigm in which ten additional normal, young adult subjects (N2)(23 to 25 years of age) were required to indicate just noticeable differences (JNDs) in pitch to tonal stimuli of 6, 11, 2, 32, and 40 kHz (7). The subjects were able to discriminate changes in frequency, although there was a steady increase in the JNDs from 2 to 40 kHz (Fig. 1C). In the auditory range the JNDs ranged from 0.4 to 1.0% of the stimulus frequency, whereas in the ultrasonic range the JNDs were on the order of 10% of the stimulus frequency. These data reinforce the premise that pitch discrimination does occur in the ultrasonic range but that frequency discrimination in the ultrasonic range differs from that in the more conventional auditory range.
We next sought to determine if individuals with impaired high frequency hearing could detect ultrasonic speech. Ten older subjects (50 to 82 years of age) (N4) were given complete audiograms [as in (5)], including ultrasonic testing, and these threshold data were compared to those previously generated in normal, young adults. At frequencies between 1,000 and 10,000 Hz, all older subjects exhibited substantial hearing loss typical of age-related deafness (Fig. 1A). However, both subject groups displayed similar ultrasonic thresholds regardless of age or hearing loss in the conventional auditory range (Fig. 1B) These data confirm the ability of human subjects to detect sounds in the ultrasonic range despite a significant hearing loss normally associated with aging (2). Furthermore, in a subsequent experiment with five additional subjects with age-related hearing loss (55 to 75 years of age) (N5), speech stimuli were amplitude-modulated onto a 28-kHz carrier frequency and presented in a single-word, oral-response discrimination task (10). Mean accuracy was found to be 58% with a range of 45 to 70%. All of the subjects discriminated words at a level considerably better than chance. The lower scores for the older group relative to the young group were due to incorrect identification of a single consonant sound within the target word.

Pentru cine mai are indoieli, un citat si un link:

As a professional photographer with over 30 years experience and exhibited at many venues, I can say that the print I produced this afternoon is better than anything I have ever done in the darkroom. The print has sharpness, great colour saturation and all the qualities that I would expect from a wet chemistry photograph, let alone a digital print. It is stunning. Any photographer who questions the quality or merit of a digital print compared to a wet chemistry print need only look at the output from the R1800.

uite am si eu un banc pentru tine

Why God created Eve

1. God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the
garden because he would not ask for directions.

2. God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and
hand him the remote.

3. God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf
when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him.

4. God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor's, dentist's or
haircut appointment by himself

5. God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the
garbage on the curb

6. God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able
to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing.

7. As the Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he
left his tools.

8. Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God
caught him hiding in the garden

9. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone."

10. When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back,
scratched his head, and said, "I can do better than that."

abuz sexual, homosexualitate, boala - de Cassandra la: 25/05/2005 14:54:31
(la: Oamenii devin homosexuali/lesbiene, sau se nasc asa ?)
Este homosexualitatea o boala si ca atare trebuie aplicate tratamente pentru "vindecarea" ei?

Revista Americana de Psihiatrie a publicat in 1999 un articol: “Position statement on psychiatric treatment and sexual orientation. Am J Psychiatry 1999; 156:1131” , (articol aprobat de Board of Trustees of the American Psychiatric Association ) in care atrage atentia profesionalilor din sectorul sanatatii mintale asupra faptului ca nu exista evidenta stiintifica care sa sprijine eficienta tratamentelor pentru schimbarea orientarii sexuale. Articolul se adreseaza temei homosexualitatii si adopta o pozitie clara “impotriva discriminarii, prejudecatilor, si tratamentelor ne etice” (p. 1131)

In ceea ce priveste abuzul sexual la minori (baieti), este o tema extrem de complexa. Abuzul poate fi exercitat nu numai de barbati dar si de femei (de multe ori de propria mama) si ceea ce lasa in urma este in primul rind o trauma psihica pentru cel abuzat, care il va urmari toata viata. Homosexualitatea nu este principala preocupare la aceste persoane ci faptul ca sufera de confuzie in privinta propriei identitati sexuale. Eu cred ca in primul rind trebuie ajutati sa-si depaseasca aceasta confuzie si sa-si cunoasca si accepte identitatea sexuala oricare ar fi ea. Un fapt este cert – nu toti abuzatii sexual devin homosexuali. Iar daca terapistii s-ar incapatina doar sa-i vindece de homosexualitate cind de fapt atentia lor ar trebui indreptata spre multe alte aspecte cum sint increderea de sine, increderea in ceilalti, eliminarea sentimentului de vinovatie, agresivitatii etc, ce solutie ar mai avea aceste victime?
Male survivor este o organizatie pentru baietii si barbatii abuzati sexual. http://www.malesurvivor.org/index.htm Din aceasta pagina citez:

Ten Facts about Sexual Abuse of Boys and its Aftermath

6. Common symptoms for sexually abused men include: guilt, anxiety, depression, interpersonal isolation, shame, low self-esteem, self-destructive behavior, post-traumatic stress reactions, poor body imagery, sleep disturbance, nightmares, anorexia or bulimia, relational and/or sexual dysfunction, and compulsive behavior like alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, overeating, overspending, and sexual obsession or compulsion.

8. There is no compelling evidence that sexual abuse fundamentally changes a boy's sexual orientation, but it may lead to confusion about sexual identity and is likely to affect how he relates in intimate situations

Si mai citez din aceeasi pagina, sint cuvintele unui membru al organizatiei, victima abuzului sexual:

“SA does not create gay people - if that were true then the majority of SA boys or girls would grow up gay.
I think what is more important to focus on is what we intend to do with whatever our orientation is. The important thing is to accept ourselves just as we are and learn to love the person that is deep inside of us. And, if we are lucky at sometime in life, we will find someone else who loves us unconditionally - be that male, female, gay, straight, etc.
There are no simple answers in life and, as I said in my previous post, life is FULL of shades of grey.”


Si iata ce raspund participantii (toti sint victime ale abuzului sexual) forumului din pagina respectiva cind li s-a cerut sa scrie o lista de minciuni in legatura cu conditia lor:

Minciuni:
“I must be gay because I liked it & went back.

I must be gay because I looked for gay sex on my own afterward.

Don't even think of having a girlfriend, girls wont like you. They will smell your shame like dog sh*t.
Uncle F loved me.
I don't belong here. (everywhere, anywhere: I feel this at home, at friend's houses, in school, at work, while travelling of living abroad.)
I have to become a CONTROL freak to keep from being vulnerable.

I held onto these lies until three four years ago (age 31 then). My wife came up with the name "the wall" for the prison I kept my heart in. It blew my mind away how
much the abuse & the lies shaped my life. It tainted every decision I made in my life, it probably still does to a degree.

~George~”



“THIS IS A LIE:
I am dumb.
I am stupid.
I am an idiot.
I have shit for brains.
I am booksmart but not smart.
I have no common sense.
I can't think.

THIS IS A LIE:
Mothers don't sexually abuse.

THIS IS A LIE:
My body responded, I must have enjoyed it.

THIS IS A LIE:
I must be a sissy, because this only happens to sissies and girls.

This is a lie:
I am gay

This is a lie:
I should cease to exist

This is a lie:
I cannot face this.

This is a lie:
Therapy will kill me.

This is a lie:
I cannot trust

This is a lie:
I am inconsequential

This is a lie:
I am alone in this, no one could possibly understand what I've been through.

This is a lie:
I am an embarrassment to the family

This is a lie:
Death is better than life”


Ce remarc este ca aceste persoane se infrunta mai degraba cu o serie de minciuni induse de societate si de fapt asta este "boala" de care sufera si de care au nevoie sa se vindece. Iar cine insista pe tema homosexualitatii ca boala, perversiune, tara sociala etc. nu face decit sa contribuie la trauma acestor persoane.

An American Prayer

Do you know the warm progress under the stars?
Do you know we exist?
Have you forgotten the keys to the Kingdom?
Have you been borne yet and are you alive?

Let's reinvent the gods, all the myths of the ages
Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests
(Have you forgotten the lessons
of the ancient war?)

We need great golden copulations

The fathers are cackling in trees of the forest
Our mother is dead in the sea

Do you know we are being led to slaughters by placid admirals
and that fat slow generals are getting obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.
The moon is a dry blood beast
Guerilla bands are rolling numbers in the next block of green vine
amassing for warfare on innocent herdsmen who are just dying

O great creator of being
grant us one more hour to perform our art
and perfect our lives

The moths and atheists are doubly divine and dying
We live, we die
and death not ends it
Journey we more into the Nightmare
Cling to life our passion'd flower
Cling to cunts and cocks of despair
We got our final vision by clap
Columbus' groin got filled with green death

(I touched her thigh and death smiled)

We have assembled inside this ancient and insane theatre
To propagate our lust for life and flee the swarming wisdom of the streets
The barns are stormed
The windows kept
and only one of all the rest
To dance and save us
With the divine mockery of words
Music inflames temperament

(When the true King's murderers are allowed to roam free
a 1000 magicians arise in the land)

Where are the feasts we were promised
Where is the wine
The New Wine (dying on the vine)

resident mockery
give us an hour for magic
We of the purple glove
We of the starling flight and velvet hour
We of arabic pleasure's breed
We of sundome and the night

Give us a creed
To believe
A night of Lust
Give us trust in
The Night

Give of color
hundred hues
a rich Mandala
for me and you

And for your silky
pillowed house
a head, wisdom
and a bed

Troubled decree
Resident mockery
has claimed thee

We used to believe
in the good old days
We still receive
In little ways

The Things of Kindness
And unsporting brow
Forget and allow

Did you know freedom exists in a school book
Did you know madmen are running our prison
within a jail, within a gaol
within a white free protestant
Maelstrom

We're perched headlong on the edge of boredom
We're reaching for death on the end of a candle
We're trying for something
That's already found us

We can invent Kingdoms of our own
grand purple thrones, those chairs of lust
and love we must, in beds of rust

Steel doors lock in prisoner's screams
and muzak, AM, rocks their dreams
No black men's pride to hoist the beams
while mocking angels sift what seems

To be a collage of magazine dust
Scratched on foreheads of walls of trust
This is just jail for those who must
get up in the morning and fight for such

unusable standards
while weeping maidens
show-off penury and pout
ravings for a mad staff

Wow, I'm sick of doubt
Live in the light of certain
South

Cruel bindings
The servants have the power
dog-men and their mean women
pulling poor blankets over
our sailors
(and where were you in our lean hour)
Milking your moustache?
or grinding a flower?
I'm sick of dour faces
Staring at me from the T.V.
Tower. I want roses in
my garden bower; dig?
Royal babies, rubies
must now replace aborted
Strangers in the mud
These mutants, blood-meal
for the plant that's plowed

They are waiting to take us into the severed garden
Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful
comes death on strange hour
unannounced, unplanned for
like a scaring over-friendly guest you've brought to bed
Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings
where we had shoulders smooth as raven's claws

No more money, no more fancy dress
This other Kingdom seems by far the best
until its other jaw reveals incest
and loose obedience to a vegetable law

I will not go
Prefer a Feast of Friends
To the Giant family

Great screaming Christ
Upsy-daisy
Lazy Mary will get you up
upon a Sunday morning

"The movie will begin in 5 moments"
The mindless Voice announced
"All those unseated, will await
The next show"

We filed slowly, languidly
into the hall. The auditorium
was vast, and silent.
As we seated and were darkened
The Voice continued:

"The program for this evening
is not new. You have seen
This entertainment thru and thru.
You've seen your birth, your
life and death; you might recall
all of the rest -- (did you
have a good world when you
died?) -- enough to base
a movie on?"

An iron chuckle rapped our
minds like a fist.

I'm getting out of here
Where're you going?
To the other side of the morning
Please don't chase the clouds
pagodas, temples

Her * gripped him
like a warm friendly
hand.

"It's all right.
All your friends are here."

When can I meet them?
"After you've eaten"
I'm not hungry
"O, we meant beaten"

Silver stream, silvery scream,
impossible concentration

Here come the comedians
look at them smile
Watch them dance
an indian mile

Look at them gesture
How aplomb
So to gesture everyone

Words dissemble
Words be quick
Words resemble walking sticks

Plant them
They will grow
Watch them waver so

I'll always be
a word-man
Better than a birdman

But I'll charge
Won't get away
w/out lodging a dollar

Shall I say it again
aloud, you get the point
No food w/out fuel's gain

I'll be, the irish loud
unleashed my beak
at peak of powers

O girl, unleash
your worried comb

O worried mind

Sin in the fallen
Backwoods by the blind

She smells debt
on my new collar

Arrogant prose
Tied in a network of fast quest
Hence the obsession

Its quick to admit
Fats borrowed rhythm
Woman came between them

Women of the world unite
Make the world safe
For a scandalous life

Canon 5D - de Dinu Lazar la: 03/09/2005 22:47:54
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/5d-samples.shtml

O fraza valabila si pentru citiva gica contra valahi, cu opera inexistenta dar vocea tare:

Well Mike, though you're an old friend, and I have a great deal of respect for your eye and knowledability, your premature judgment on the 5D's image quality was way off. Indeed, after having spent the past 5 years shooting almost daily with my own Canon D30, D60, 10D, 20D, 1Ds and 1Ds MKII, and samples of most other DSLRs to come to market, I can only tell you that the dynamic range and overall image quality of the 5D sample that I have for testing is as good if not better than the best of the cameras that I've used before.

The photograph Gaze above tells the whole story of the 5D's image quality. It has been slightly cropped at the bottom and right side, and white balance was set using the fur of the stuffed animal. It has been sharpened using Photokit Sharpener. That's all that has been done to the raw file. (Processed with a beta version of Camera Raw). The photograph was taken in the open shade at ISO 400.

There is no noise visible. None, even at 100% magnification. Skin tones are lovely and colour reproduction totally satisfying. There is considerable detail both in the black fur and the white. Dynamic range is excellent. Resolution appears to only be limited by the lens. Other test shots taken of static objects with some of Canon's top lenses show this to indeed be the case.

So, sorry Mike. Your premature conjecture was simply wrong, at least based on my first-hand evaluation.

(la: miss cafenea 2005)
This is a personality test.
Pick your answers instinctively.
There are no right or wrong answers.

Imagine yourself with a friend at a coffee bar. Your friend has just ordered a cappuccino, which you were thinking of ordering. So what would you do now?

A) "I'll have the same."
B) "Me too."
C) "Make that two."
D) "I'll have an ice tea." (Or any other completely different drink.)
E) "Cappuccino."

Pick your answer, then scroll down for what each statement means.
look down!!!

















"I'll have the same."
You are a very easy going person. You rarely refuse your friends when they come to you for help. Occasionally, it may be more wise for you to say "NO" sometimes. This might save you from unnecessary trouble.

"Me too."
You are an indecisive person. And the reason for that might be
because you think more than others! Sometimes you should just go for it, otherwise, you might find yourself missing out on a lot of opportunities that would eventually lead you to success.

"Make that two."
You have a strong will. You want to be in control of others. Although you do not show this, you have a hidden desire to be better than everyone who surrounds you.

"I'll have an ice tea." (Or any other completely different drink.)
You are extremely competitive and not afraid to show it. You
will never settle for second best. However, you should be careful of your actions, as others may feel uncomfortable because of your stubborn nature to win at all costs.

"Cappuccino."
Stubborn is the best word to describe you. You will not give in to anything once your mind is set. You live by your own rules, and damn the consequences. But to many people, you are just a hard-headed person with little consideration to others.

nu cumva joy division love will tear us apart?
sigur e asa.

I wanna be better than oxygen
So you can breathe when you're drowning and weak in the knees
We can speak louder than ignorance
Cause we speak in silence every time our eyes meet.
