Skeeter Davis - The end of the world


Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world,
'Cause you don't love me any more?

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when I lost your love.

I wake up in the morning and I wonder,
Why everything's the same as it was.
I can't understand. No, I can't understand,
How life goes on the way it does.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when you said goodbye.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when you said goodbye.

SCRISOARE DE BUN RAMAS
(Mircea Baniciu, George Tarnea)

Iubito, cata lume intre noi,
Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Si dintr-un ochi de dor necunoscut,
Cate zapezi pe buze ne-au crescut...

Asculta-ma si lasa-ma sa strig,
Mi-e frica de-ntamplare si mie frig
Si nu mai vreau sa stiu pan-la sfarsit
Cine-a iubit frumos, cine-a gresit,

Cine-a facut spre noapte primul pas,
Cine-a plecat din joc, cine-a ramas,

Cine si-a smuls peretii rand pe rand,
Cine s-a-ntors mereu cu ziua-n gand,
Cine a pierdut si cine a castigat
De toate inlantuit sau dezlegat,
Cine a crezut mai mult in celalalt,
Sub cerul prea strain si prea inalt.

Iubito, cata lume intre noi,
Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Si dintr-un ochi de dor necunoscut,
Cate zapezi pe buze ne-au crescut...

Cand am sa uit cum suna glasul tau,
Decat tacerea, ce-mi va fi mai rau
Si cum sa pot sub stele innopta
Cand nu mai simt ce-nseamna umbra ta?

Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Iubito, cata lume intre noi.

Vincent si nu numai - de clody la: 12/01/2006 23:35:47
(la: Versuri din melodiile voastre preferate...)
Uneori ascult doar muzica pt ca nu are versuri sau sunt in vreo limba necunoscuta mie. Alteori ascult fascinata versurile chiar daca melodia in sine nu e cine stie ce. Ideal e atunci cand gasesti si melodia si versurile sa-ti placa si mai mult, sa fie in armonie si sa te poti si tu identifica cu ele.
Cateva din versurile mele preferate:

Vincent - Don Mclean

Starry, starry night
paint your palette blue and grey
look out on a summer's day
with eyes that know the
darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils
catch the breeze and the winter chills
in colors on the snowy linen land.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me
how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they did not know how
perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you
but still your love was true
and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
starry night.
You took your life
as lovers often do;
But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never
meant for one
as beautiful as you.

Dance me to the end of love - Leonard Cohen

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love

Take this walz - Leonard Cohen

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs

Dance With my father - Luther Vandross

Back when I was a child
before life removed all the inocence
My father would lift me high
and dance with my mother and me and then
spend the hours till I fell asleep
then up the stairs he would carry me
and I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance
another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
how I'd love, love, love
to dance with my father again
Take this waltz - de Daniel Racovitan la: 08/12/2003 03:47:22
(la: Cohen)
Uite o piesa, nush' dac'ai ascultat-o, e superbissima: "Take this waltz"... O pun pe picior de egalitate cu "Dance me..."
Un colaj de imagini halucinant, o [poezie] de [dragoste] deosebita:


"TAKE THIS WALTZ
--after Lorca

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years


There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now. It's all that there is."


Si iata si o comparatie cu poezia lui Lorca, dupa care Cohen spune ca s-a inspirat:

Stiu ca astea's vechi dar sunt anti-misogin :)) - de Ly la: 27/04/2004 13:30:38
(la: Femeia)
Subject: wife vs husband!

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a
word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of
them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules,
goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of
yours?"

"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

-----------------

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use
a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000.

The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat
everything to men..

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

--------------

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so
stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.

" The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so
you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be
attracted to you!

---------------------

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the
coffee each morning.

The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then
we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."

The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you
should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my
coffee."

Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible
that the man should do the coffee."

Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him
at the top of several pages, that it indeed says...

To All my brothers and sisters - de Little Eagle la: 27/06/2004 03:56:25
(la: Native American Indians)
Pt. ca nu veti mai avea de-a face cu mine de acum incolo,va las sa zic asa o mica mostenire din credinta poporului meu.Aceste cuvinte ,sper ca vor gasi un ecou in sufletul vostru.
Din nou si nu fac nici o reclamatie impotriva Admin,sper ca va tipari tot ce am scris azi,am zis,macar ca fiind ultimele mele cuvinte si consider ca am dreptul la ele.Unora li se da o masa buna,si poate o tigara ori o ultima rugaciune.Nu mai fumez,Nu mai beau,Nu mai consum droguri,Nu mananc carne de nici un fel
sunt vegetarian.
Cel putin lasa-ma Admin sa-mi spun ultimele cuvinte,in mod decent si sa nu fiu cenzurat.
Nu-ti fie teama,NU voi spune nimic rau nimanui!

Acestea-s cuvintele mele venite de la poporul meu,macar acum lasa-ma sa vorbesc freely:
Imi pare rau ca nu am rabdarea si timpul de a traduce in R. din engleza,totusi stiu ca voi toti sunteti inteligenti si veti intelege totul.

"When you begin a great work you can't expect to finish it all at once;therefore do you and your brothers press on,and let nothing discourage you till you have entirely finished what you have begun?
Now brother,as for me,I assure you I will press on,and the contrary winds may blow strong in my face,yet I will go forward and never turn back,and continue to press forward untill I have finished,and I would have you do the same....
Though you may hear birds singing on this side and that side,you must not take notice of that,but hear me when I speak to you,and take it to heart,
for you may always depend that what I say shall be true."

Black Hawk(Sauk-Lakota)

" Grandfather says that when your friends die you must not cry.
You must not hurt anybody or do harm to anybody.You must not fight.Do right always.It will give you satisfaction in life.
If the white man wants to live in peace with the indian,he can live in peace.
Give them all the same law.Give them all a chance to live and grow.
All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief.They are all brothers.
The earth is the Mother of all people,and all people should have equal rights upon it.
You might as well expect the rivers to run backward as that any man who was
born a free man should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleases.
If you tie a horse to a stake,do you expect he will grow fat?
If you pen an indian up on a small spot of earth,and compell him to stay there,he will not be contented,nor will he grow and prosper."

Chief Joseph(Nez Perce)

And he walked on down the hall...

He went into the room where his sister lived
And then he paid a visit to his brother
And then he walked on down the hall
And he came to a door
And he looked inside,
Father?
Yes,son?
I want to kill you,
Mother,I want to fuck you....

Come on baby,take a chance with us
Come on baby,take a chance with us
Come on baby,take a chance with us...
And meet me at the end of the blue bus

This is the end,beautiful friend
This is the end,my only friend

It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follw me

The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

Tatal Nostru... - de LMC la: 07/07/2004 00:21:03
(la: PUTEREA RUGACIUNII)
O, Birther of the Cosmos, focus your light within us -- make it useful
Create your reign of unity now
Your one desire then acts with ours,
As in all light,
So in all forms,
Grant us what we need each day in bread and insight:
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold of other's guilt.
Don't let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
I affirm this with my whole being.

Fapte Reale pt. Omulet - de LMC la: 04/08/2004 18:39:49
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Prin simplu fapt ca ai zis:

"Nu m-am mai deranjat nici macar sa deschid linkurile pe care le-ai publicat. Stiu ce contin, si propaganda fascista nu ma atrage."

asta da dovada de um om cu o minte deschisa????

Imi pare rau Domnule Goma, dar interpretarea dumitale este cea care-i obtusa. Daca te-ai fi deranjat numai pentru unul dintre linkurile care le-am listat ai fi vazut ca ceea ce era scris nu era numai de la sursa care publica. Din contra fiecare dintre linkuri arata un "headline" reportat in diferite locuri. De asemenea, ti-ai fi deschis un pic mai mult mintea si te-ai fi educat sa vezi cine-ti sint "prieteni". Vorba aia "Doamne fereste-ma de prieteni ca de inamici ma stiu eu pazi."

Din cite am citit la tine,te uiti la mine ca la un red neck, si eu ma uit la tine ca la un om care are ochii blindati. Ti-ai format o ideie anume despre conservativi, dar nici nu esti interesat sa-i cunosti. Imi pare rau dar pierzi mult mai mult decit tu crezi ca cistigi de la liberali.

Imi spui sa ma duc sa-mi citesc Biblia, si vreau sa-ti spun ca am citit-o mai mult decit ai fi citit-o sau o vei citi tu vre-odata. News Flash: vechiul si noul testament nu se contrazic deloc, ci se completeaza. Si ca sa-ti spun ce parere are Biblia despre prietenii tai homosexuali am sa-ti dau sa citesti citeva pasaje, si din Vechi si din Nou.

Leviticus 18:22
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

Leviticus 20:13
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Romans 1. 18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

Ai dorinta sa-mi inchizi gura, asta nu vei reusi niciodata. Atita timp cit am vlaga in mine, atita timp cit singele-mi pulseaza in vene, voi spune raului rau si binelui bine. Sa fiu sincera cu tine nu ma intereseaza ce faci sau ce face altul atita timp cit nu-mi baga nimeni pe git ideile murdare, sau guvernul tarii in care traiesc nu se asociaza cu ideile aceastea. Si eu cred ca am dreptul acesta. Nu te ingrijora, nu voi vota pentru infiintarea lagarelor de concentrare, dar vad ca lagarele de concentrare pentru care votezi tu sint aproape de infiintare. Cred ca vei fi primul care ma vei lua de la spate si ma vei impinge in cuptor impreuna cu toti ceilalti conservativi, crestini sau altii care nu-s de acord cu tine. Si inca mai ai tupeul sa-mi spui ca cica eu sint plina de ura. Ma intreb oare ce parere au parintii tai, sau bunicii tai despre tine si ideile tale.

Nu are rost sa mai continui, am sa te pun primul pe lista celor ignorati, asa ca nu-ti pierde timpul sa-mi mai scrii.

Un Mic Articol - de LMC la: 03/11/2004 22:31:38
(la: Alegeri prezidentiale in Statele Unite. Candidatul preferat)
Articolul de mai jos a fost scris si publicat de mine acum vreun an in urma. Este in Engleza, asa ca scoateti-va dictionarele.

California’s Economy: A State of Emergency

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Acest articol a fost scris pe vremea cind Gray Davis era inca Governor, de atunci lucrurile s-au mai schimbat inspre bine. Totusi inca mai suferim consecintele unui liberal al carui plan a fost sa suporte programele sociale mai mult decit cele economice.

SHE went as quiet as the dew
From a familiar flower.
Not like the dew did she return
At the accustomed hour!

She dropt as softly as a star
From out my summer’s eve;
Less skillful than Leverrier
It’s sorer to believe!

Cred ca iesirile la peisaje sau la intimplari sunt foarte bune; de departe, cea mai frumoasa intimplare de anu` asta e festivalul de obiceiuri populare de la Sighet, cindva la sfirsitul anului; mai se vor organiza la Muzeul Satului si la Muzeul Taranului diverse intimplari; mai sunt chestii cu masti si obiceiuri de tot soiul; dar o chestie la care intr-adevar merita sa se gindeasca cineva care are ceva energie fotografica si nu stie ce sa faca cu ea, e sa conceapa un proiect compact si sa-l execute de la A la Z.
Adica sa faca o tema completa, nu incercari, teste si chestii care in timp aluneca in cosul de lucrari superficiale.
La modul ideal, ar trebui ca creatoru` sa fie bintuit de una, doua, maxim trei idei, pe care sa se pedaleze pina se consuma ideea ca luminarea si se poate bifa la rubrica de teme complete.
Daca eu acum as avea 25 de ani si nu as sti ce sa fac cu mine, si as vrea sa fac poze, m-as duce la circ si as cere o discutie cu directoru` si i-as spune uite stimata doamna, sunt pasionat de fotografie, nu pot sa dorm pe chestia asta, lasati-ma sa fac ceva poze pe aici citeva luni si va dau si Dvs citeva imagini sa fceti ce vreti cu ele.
Mai sunt teatrele, mai sunt atitea chestii care se pot face... o zi cu Cartarescu, o luna la spital, o saptamina la vulcanizare, si cite si mai cite.
Uite asa se poate face o opera.
SIgur, se pot face si peisaje cu gashca, dar se pot ataca si subiecte adevarate, care este. Un book bubuitor nu se poate face numai cu cetzuri si departari, desi nici alea nu sunt rele, si eu gresesc des...
Deci se pot ataca tipii care sunt sefi sau raspund de comunicare, si intreba, la 10 refuzuri o sa fie si o chestie care merge, ca asa se intimpla...
Si se pot face minunate chestii; poze la orfelinat, la o casa de batrini, la balamuc, la aeroport, la cimitir, si cite si mai cite. Mai cu ciubuc, mai cu cointeresare, mai cu miere, se poate face un book de pomina astfel.
Nu in ultimul rind, trebuie atacati editorii si cei ce au nevoie de imagine. Nu e nici o rusine sa luati legatura cu neobositul Razvan Penescu, cel care face Liternetu`, si sa il intrebati nene, eu ce expozitie fac acolo la Liternet, ce poze aveti nevoie, ce autori pot sa fotografiez?
De asemeni domnul Iancu, cel care realizeaza www.aol.ro; are nevoie de imagini permanent; si expunerea aduce alte idei, si tot asa, e ca shenila.
Viatza fotografica grozava presupune expunere, ecouri, teme diferite, dar facute cit mai complet. Ce se intimpla intimplator din intimplare cu greu isi poate gasi un loc intr-un book tare; trebuie gasite teme pe lungimea de unda a fiecaruia, trebuie lucrat pina se da in bilbiiala, si pe urma mai vorbim.
Nu in ultimul rind, trebuie gindit ca fotografia e un business care aduce bani; e o chestie care trebuie respectata ca atare si munca pe gratis de la inceput nu trebuie continuata la infinit...
Pe o alta lista un mare fotograf sfatuia un tip aflat mai la inceputuri:

1) Decide what type of photography you want to do, and how much income you will need from it.
a) Service photography, such as portraits, weddings, school groups and the like can pay well, but in some sense is merely a different version of the "burned out buildings" you have been shooting because service photography is usually expressed as a "formula."
b) Photojournalism, the "shabby grandeur" end of the business and the lowest-paying segment of the
industry and also IMHO, the most demanding and exciting.
c) Scenics, or landscapes, ala Ansel Adams
d) Books, calendars, notecards; be prepared to start on your own nickel or give up a lot of the profits to
someone else.
e) Fill in the blank___________
2) Then go to seminars and workshops that talk about and give hands on training in the type of photography you want to do. The local library helps. As do art museums for study of compositions. Early on in my career I went to our local world-class art museum the Nelson-Atkins in Kansas City, MO and just studied the work of the masters, paying special attention to lighting and composition. You do not say if you have been a student of things art in your current life. While it is certainly not impossible to gain a feel and for the artistic an ability to communicate that, if you haven't pursued it until now, much discovery lies ahead-and much work. Successful artists such as Grandma Moses and Elizabeth Layton, AKA Grandma Layton, came to art late in life.
3) When you decide what type of stuff you want to shoot, that will in large measure determine what type of equipment you will need. Serious school photography, for example, will require considerably different hardware than landscape photography.

? 1880 - Dumitru Vasescu - construieste automobilul cu motor cu aburi.
In 1769, the very first self-propelled road vehicle was a military tractor invented by French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot (1725 - 1804). Cugnot used a steam engine to power his vehicle, built under his instructions at the Paris Arsenal by mechanic Brezin. It was used by the French Army to haul artillery at a whopping speed of 2 1/2 mph on only three wheels. The vehicle had to stop every ten to fifteen minutes to build up steam power. The steam engine and boiler were separate from the rest of the vehicle and placed in the front (see engraving above). The following year (1770), Cugnot built a steam-powered tricycle that carried four passengers.

? 1881 Alexandru Ciurcu - obtine un brevet din Franta prin care prevede posibilitatea zborului cu reactie.
The earliest rockets were almost certainly Chinese—there is little doubt that the Chinese first developed “black powder,” the basic propellant used in rockets. The combination of salt-peter, charcoal, and sulphur was probably used in fireworks by the Chinese centuries before Christ lived, but the only written records available are dated well into the Middle Ages.
Mongols besieging the city of Kaifeng in 1232 used arrows propelled by rockets (though primarily as a psychological weapon).
Knowledge about rocketry seems to have moved with the Mongol invasions—the Arabs are seen as having developed rockets by the thirteenth century and are reported as having used them against Saint Louis in the Seventh Crusade; the Italians were experimenting with rockets by the fifteenth century. A major refinement in the formula for black powder was made in the thirteenth century by Roger Bacon; this resulted in the creation of gunpowder.
All of those people dreamt of sending people to the moon on the tail of a rocket … Even Cyrano de Bergerac (the real one) did that in a poem …
Conrad Hass (1551-1579), German, an artillery engineer and chief of arsenal of the town of Sibiu. Hass wrote about the construction and the flight tests of multistage rockets, apparently the earliest writings in existence about the science of rocket engineering. How about that???

? 1886 Alexandru Ciurcu - construieste prima ambarcatiune cu reactie.
It’s more complicated, Ciurcu e numai un participant … one of two; also, educated in France.
Desire and Victoire Piot (A late eighteenth century French engineer / inventor and the origins of the Vapour Pulse Jet) probably fled France on the out break of the Franco–Prussian war in 1870 finally arriving in London where he tested his first successful pulse jet boats. Desire Piot could well have been inspired by a rocket powered boat developed by Just Buisson and Ciurcu. Not so successful demonstrations of their jet boat on the river Seine in Paris took place from August to December 1886 for the benefit of the French Ministry of Defense.


? 1887 C. I. Istrate - Friedelina si franceinele.
Correct!!!

? 1895 D. Hurmuzescu - descopera electroscopul.
Jean Antoine Nollet (1700–1770) was a clergyman and physicist. In 1748, Nollet invented one of the first electrometers, the electroscope, which detected the presence of electric charge by using electrostatic attraction and repulsion. Nollet later wrote a theory on electrical attraction and repulsion based on the existence of a continuous flow of electrical matter between charged bodies and became the the first professor of experimental physics at the University of Paris.
Many others including George Washington did the same before our guy … 1755 or so …

? 1899 C.I. Istrate - o noua clasa de coloranti.
Maybe …

? 1900 Nicolae Teclu - becul cu reglarea curentului electric si gaz.
Are you serious??? “Becul de labborator cu reglarea curentului de AER si gaz”; big difference!!!
How about Bunsen? Premix (meaning air and gas) burners were the first purpose-designed burners, and they can be traced back more than 100 years to the Bunsen and similar laboratory burners. A premix burner system really consists of two key components, the burner head or nozzle, and the gas-air mixing device that feeds it. In some cases they're built as a single unit. The mixer uses the energy of a pressurized stream of air and/or gas to mix the two and present them to the burner nozzle, which provides an ignition and anchoring point for the flame and controls its shape.

? 1904 Emil Racovita - fondatorul biospeologiei.
Absolutely correct!!!

? 1905 Augustin Maior - telefonia multipla.
AT&T 1902 … also Bell Laboratoryes …

? 1906, 18.03 - Traian Vuia - avionul cu tren de aterizare pe roti cu pneuri; cu ?Vuia I? acesta reuseste prima decolare fara sa foloseasca nici un mijloc ajutator, numai cu aparate aflate la bord (în fapt, primul avion din istorie).
Are you serious?
The first powered heavier-than-air flight took place in 1890 (Clement Ader, steam engine on bat-winged monoplane, 60 yards). The Wrights' 1903 flight (300 yards) was the first photographed heavier-than-air flight. [Correction: not quite true; there exist photos of Lilienthal's non-powered heavier-than-air flights in the 1890s.] After the advent of relatively light combustion engines (such as Benz, Otto, Diesel), other pioneers pursued similar approaches, but no photographs were taken by Richard Pearse (New Zealand, March 1903) and Karl Jatho (August 1903). Finally, the Wrights needed headwinds or catapults to start their planes, so they were not fully self-powered. But Brazil's Santos-Dumont was (1906, first official airplane flight).
Important stuff: Richard Pearse March 31, 1902. Accounts by witnesses of the flight vary, from "50 to 400 yards in length", but it seems most likely that it was around 350 yards long, and ending prematurely when the flying machine landed in a large hedge - 4 metres off the ground ! The aircraft was the first to use proper ailerons, instead of the inferior wing warping system that the Wright's used. The flying machine also had a modern tricycle type landing gear, thus negating the need for ramps, slides, or skids. Any suitable road would do. The flying machine was aerodynamically crude, for sure, but did the job on the day, and in fact for months afterwards. By the end of July 1903, Pearse had achieved flights of around one kilometre in length, and perhaps even more amazingly, some of them included turns ! An absolutely fantastic achievement for the time. Pearce also built the engine, which was estimated at about 15 - 22hp, but hampered by a much cruder propeller than the Wright's machine.

? 1906 A.A. Beldiman - aparatul hidraulic cu dalta de percutie pentru sondaje adânci.
Tough to prove!!!

? 1908 Lazar Edeleanu ? primul procedeu de rafinare a produselor petroliere cu bioxid de sulf din lume, procedeu care ii poarta numele.
A good one!!! Oil helped us a lot in the first half of last century.

? 1908 Acad. Nicolaie Vasilescu-Karpen - ?pila Karpen", care functioneaza înca si produce curent electric, neîntrerupt, de aproape 100 de ani!
William Grove produced the first fuel cell in 1839 over 150 years ago. He based his experiment on the fact that sending an electric current through water splits the water into its component parts of hydrogen and oxygen. So, Grove tried reversing the reaction - combining hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity and water. This is the basis of a simple fuel cell. The term “fuel cell” was coined later in 1889 by Ludwig Mond and Charles Langer, who attempted to build the first practical device using air and industrial coal gas.

? 1910 iunie - Aurel Vlaicu - lanseaza primul avion din lume fuselat aerodinamic.
See also Rolland Garos and other Santos-Dumont financed … French aircraft … and … so… on …

? 1910 Tache Brumarescu - masina de taiat sulf.
So what? The Austrians have invented the sowing machine before that. So what. The English invented the automated knitting machines before that. So what?

? 1910 Stefan Procopiu - efectul circular al discontinuitatilor de magnetism.
Bohr-Procopiu magneton … amazing participation to highly sophisticated physics. An excellent one …

? 1910 Gh. Marinescu - tratamentul paraliziei generale.
Close but no cigar! It was alive and well in America before 1900 …

? 1910 Henri Coanda reuseste primul zbor al unui avion cu reactie (fabricatie proprie).
Correct!!! First and foremost, it is now being recognized as the first air-reactive engine (jet) aircraft, making its first and only flight October, 1910. ... in Paris (not Romania, of course).


? 1910 Ioan Cantacuzino - ? fenomenul Cantacuzino? (aglutinarea unor microbi).
How about this? First experiments with streptococcal agglutination Paul Moser and Bensaude, Le phenomene de l'agglutination des. microbes. Carre, Paris 1897. ...

? 1913-1916 Ioan Cantacuzino - vaccinarea antiholerica (metoda Cantacuzino)
Pasteur was known as the father of stereochemistry, but his contributions to microbiology and medicine were greater. Pasteur discovered anaerobic bacteria and two silkworm diseases. It was he who discovered that if you take a microbe that causes a particular disease, for instance, smallpox, and make a weakened form of it, that weakened smallpox microbe can be used to fight off the stronger smallpox microbes. Doctors now inoculate people against all kinds of diseases and, for a time, had almost eradicated smallpox. Pasteur also invented the anthrax vaccine, the cholera vaccine, and the rabies vaccine. He died in 1895.

? 1916 D. Danielopolu - actiunea hipertensiva a digitalei.
The man credited with the introduction of digitalis into the practice of medicine was William Withering. Withering was born in Wellington, Shropshire, England in 1741. He followed in the medical footsteps of his father who was an apothecary-surgeon. Withering received his MD degree in 1766. As an individual, William Withering was an extremely giving person. He would personally see and treat two or three thousand poor patients a year limiting him to making about 1000 British pounds as compared to his contemporary doctors who made 5000 British pounds per year. Withering published about 19 articles during his lifetime. After fighting a long battle with tuberculosis, William Withering, the father of digitalis medicine, died on October 6 1799, at the age of 58.

? 1918 Gogu Constantinescu - întemeiaza o noua stiinta: sonicitatea.
Correct but not in Romania; in England where he educated himself and become a teacher of physics. Had he stayed in Romania he would have done nothing like most of us …

? 1919 Stefan Procopiu - unitatea elementara de energie magnetica (magnetonul).
Same as above, verry good!!!

? 1920 Emil Racovita - pune bazele Institutul de Speologie Cluj (primul din lume).
First in the world is tough to prove!!!

? 1920 ing. Gheorghe Botezatu - a calculat traiectoriile posibile Pamânt - Luna, folosite la pregatirea programelor ?Apollo? (al caror parinte a fost sibianul Herman Oberth); el a fost si seful echipei de matematicieni care a lucrat la proiectul rachetei ?Apollo? care a dus primul om pe Luna.
About the calculations Earth-Moon you must be kidding.
Herman Oberth also started Hitler’s V1 and, by the way, hated Romania and wrote to German leadership to dump Romania as an ally …

? 1921 Aurel Persu - automobilul fara diferential, cu motor în spate (de forma ?picaturii de apa").
Could be but it does not work …

? 1921 Nicolae Paulescu - descopera insulina; pentru ca era un anti-mason virulent, Premiul Nobel l-au primit canadienii F. Banting si J.R.J. McLeod pentru aceasta descoperire?
It should already be clear that 1920 comes before 1921 but anyway … there were others also …
1908 German scientist, Georg Zuelzer develops the first injectible pancreatic extract to suppress glycosuria; however, there are extreme side effects to the treatment.
1010-1920 Frederick Madison Allen and Elliot P. Joslin emerge as the two leading diabetes specialists in the United States.
1913 Allen, after three years of diabetes study, publishes Studies Concerning Glycosuria and Diabetes, a book which is significant for the revolution in diabetes therapy that developed from it.
1919 Frederick Allen publishes Total Dietary Regulation in the Treatment of Diabetes, citing exhaustive case records of 76 of the 100 diabetes patients he observed, becomes the director of diabetes research at the Rockefeller Institute.
July 1, 1920 Dr. Banting opens his first office in London, Ontario. He receives his first patient on July 29th; his total earnings for his first month of work is $4.00.

? 1921 Stefan Procopiu - Fenomenul Procopiu (depolarizarea luminii).
May be …

? 1922 C.Levaditi si Sazevac - bismutul ca agent terapeutic împotriva sifilisului.
Bullshit!!!
Syphilis was treated with mercury or other ineffective remedies until World War I (1914-1916), when effective treatments based on arsenic or bismuth were introduced. These were succeeded by antibiotics after World War II.


? 1925 Traian Vuia - generatorul de abur cu ardere în camera închisa si cu vaporizare instantanee.
Vuia was a great engineer, but when he tried to patent his airplane the Arsenal in Romania threw him out and he had to go to France to find forward looking people to fund his invention … Now we want him! La placinte innainte, la razboi innapoi …

? 1930 Elie Carafoli - avionul cu aripa joasa.
Bullshit!!!
Zdenek Lhota - Czechoslovakia – 1925 - flew the BH-11 low-wing monoplane.
Albert W. (Al) Mooney - chief engineer at Alexander (1928-1929) was responsible for the Bullet, an advanced, high speed, low wing monoplane. With Mooney's patented retractable landing gear, it was a mild sensation and ahead of its time.

? 1933 Henri Coanda - aerodina lenticulara (farfuria zburatoare).
? 1938 Henri Coanda - efectul Coanda.
? 1938 Henri Coanda - discul volant.
The Coanda Effect is a real Romanian contribution to the progress of science. All good!!! But again in England, not in Romania. That should tell anyone something …

? 1952 Ia fiinta Institutul National de Geronto-Geriatrie ?Dr. Ana Aslan", primul institut de geriatrie din lume, model pentru tarile dezvoltate, prin asistenta clinica si cercetare. ?Ana Aslan? are, anual, mii de pacienti.
A big lie …and a lot of word of mouth phony advertising …

Exagerarea contributiei noastre la motorul societatii umane ii face pe unii romani sa creada ca, de buni ce suntem, n-avem nimic de schimbat, iar ceilalti sa ne pupe ...

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.

daca asta-i cazul, uite un banc ptr tine:)

A young cowboy walks into a seedy cafe in Laramie, Wyoming. He sits at the counter and notices an old cowboy with his arms folded staring blankly at a full bowl of chili. After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at it, the young cowboy bravely asks the old cowpoke, "If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?"

The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the young wrangler and in his best cowboy manner says, "Nah, go ahead."

Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides the bowl over to his place and starts spooning it in with delight. He gets nearly down to the bottom and notices a dead mouse in the chili. The sight was shocking and he immediately pukes up the chili into the bowl.

The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got, too."

(la: casatorie cu un cetatean american)
Presupun ca sotul este hispanic, Puerto Rico? Spune sincer ceea ce crezi la interviul cu ofiterii consulari ai US Embassy, caci daca este o casatorie formala, fii sigura ca-si dau seama. Nu incerca sa-i pacalesti, cunosc din pacate un caz similar si biata femeie s-a facut cam de ras. Succes in dragoste si in emigrare!

(la: CIRCUMCIZIA, intre ritual si igiena.)
In nemernicia si ilogica mea doream sa aduc cateva argumente in sprijinul textului Biblic fara a fi limitativ in ceea ce priveste singura problema ridicata, cea a circumciziei.
Regret lipsa de rigurozitate terminologica (imi fac mea culpa din greu deoarece sunt de meserie :)) intre fermentatie si putrefactie, la fel cu biocatalizatorii. Shame on me :)...
Daca stiam ca astepti raspuns exact as fi zis doar : asa a zis G-d(Adonai) asa facem, no comment :). Ca si copilul care-si asculta tatal. Pur si simplu. Pentru cei ce nu cred asa, liber sa poarte preputz :))). S-auzim de bine,

(la: Guru Bivolaru sau falimentul de imagine al Romaniei?)
Consiliul Superior al Magistraturii ca urmare a unei anchete a stabilit ca nici un procuror nu se face vinovat de abuzuri savarsite impotriva membrilor MISA iar in cazul extradarii lui guru Grieg s-au efectuat toate demersurile procedurale necesare.
Nu s-a mai asteptat argumentatia magistratilor suedezi. Poate ca acestora li s-a "nazarit" sa-i acorde azil, fara temei legal, ca-s si ei de vreo cativa anisori doar in democratie, in timp ce magistratilor romani nu le miroase gura dupa consumul vartos de Alium sativum.
Cum spuneam deseori mai demult, mentalitate de casta "e de-a nostri bre..." sau "stransi uniti in jurul partidului (sistemului)" a aruncat in bezna gogomaniile unor neprofesionisti. Merge si asa, e bine tavarishci!

(la: Cele o mie de fete ale nebuniei)
RSI: daca nu ma crezi pe cuvant:

He eventually fell into a period of mental illness, overwhelmed by the demands put on him by others and himself.

His father had committed suicide, did he feel then it was perfectly ok for him to do the same?

But his medical treatment to overcome his mental problems did not work and he found his memory had gone and he could not even write to appease himself.

(la: de ce credeti in dumnezeu?)
este dumnezeul parintilor nostri, bun si atotputernic. Il simt in fiecare clipa alaturi. Este cu mine si simt cand nu-I fac voia sau atunci cand il supar. El este langa mine intotdeauna chiar cand eu ma lepad de El sau nu-L marturisesc cum trebuie. El imi intinde bratele fara resentimente. Este Tata. Doar atat. Tata. Unul.
