CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

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

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


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


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

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

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

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

CUBA

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

ZIMBABWE

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

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

TURKMENISTAN

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

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


BANGLADESH

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

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

CHINA

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

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

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

ERITREA

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

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


HAITI

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

THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

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

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

RUSSIA

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

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

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

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

Frate sa ma ierti, dar ma raliez Frumoasei in apararea Abbei. Ei nu au cantat pop, au cantat ABBA. Si cu toate ca nu ajung nici la glezna lui Dylan, au avut si ei farmecul lor.

Si pentru ca tot am ajuns la Dylan, am sa deschid un subiect care a fost mult comentat. Ce parere ai despre felul in care "he sold out to the establishment" (sa vandut)? Cred ca stii la ce ma refer - reclama la Victoria Secret. Faina reclama, n-am ce zice, dar ...

Black Sabath mi-au placut si mie mult. Ei, Iron Maiden si Judas Priest. In liceu ii ascultam mult. Si Accept si Led Zeppelin si Deep Purple, dar mai ales Scorpions (pana prin '89, ca dup'aia s-au cam comercializat). Acum m-am prostit, cand am timp ascult comentarii politice.

Din BS imi placea tare mult (trebuie sa recunosc, motive personale) un cantec care de fapt nu ii reprezinta deloc - "She's gone". La un moment dat mi-am facut o caseta numai cu aceasta melodie repetata intr-una. Eh, ce vrei, ticneli de adolescent indragostit. Acum am femeia, nu-mi mai trebuie melodia. Dar cand se intampla sa o mai aud inca imi umezeste ochii.

Dar sa ne intoarcem la Dylan. Nu ma rabda inima si voi posta un cantec de-al lui care este extraordinar de actual cu toate ca a fost scris prin anii '60. Imi cer iertare ne-cititorilor de engleza, dar nu voi avea tupeul de a atenta o traducere asa cum facea un guitator mentionat de tine mai devreme.

Masters of War

Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks

You that never done nothin'
But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain

You fasten the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
As young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins

How much do I know
To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
Even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul

And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand o'er your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead

I am only one, but I AM one!

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!

(la: Blade Runner a fost ales cel mai bun SF Film)
...si destule au fost omise, printre care si "Calauza"...Pacat!

Eu caut de multa vreme sa vad "Regii Nisipurilor", ecranizare a nuvelei cu acelasi nume de George R.R. Martin, (premiul "Nebula" in 1979 si "Hugo" in 1980), film care a aparut in 1995, avandu-l pe Beau Bridges in rolul principal.
Iata un scurt comentariu despre acest film:
"SANDKINGS is one of the scariest pieces of sci-fi I've ever seen.
I rank it with original INVASION of the BODY SNATCHERS because it's literal,cut-no-slack, NIGHTMARE. Beau Bridges acting as Madder Max/March Hare scientist,Dr.Simon Kress is superb.The theme drips Freudian anti-myth,as Kress in defiance of God, Nature and the most ordinary paramters of human love and responsibility "cultivates" an alien race of INSECTS. [The Insects were initially brought to Earth in soil samples garnered on Mars by a Rover-like space vehicle.] Kress nurtures this anti-race in untrammeled will-to-Power when he realizes the BREED worships him. [Sand castles are made with ICON portraits of him worked into altar-like minnaret towers. When Kress/Bridges...in exultant hubris...strides into the midst of the DisneySand experimental environment he has fashioned into Alien Eden,thousdands of the insects divide/ bow in obeisance doing him homage as GOD.] Ritual war; sacrifice and finally cannibalistic murder follows as Kress renounces attachment to family,friends and humanity.
Suspense builds into sheer terror. If the climax is a bit "predictable", the tale of terror getting there isn't.
The(revived)OUTER LIMITS used "Sandkings" as premier offering. Director Stuart Gillard, and sriptwriter Melinda Snodgrass have done magnificent jobs rendering George Martin's PM sci-fi shocker.Forget what the movie may lack compared with its literary progenitor.THE SANDKINGS'TV-movie stepchild is masterpiece of blood; cold sweat; and FEAR...

Nu-mi dau seama cum o fi ajuns preluat de arabi,insa te asigur ca este un proverb indian trecut din generatie in generatie de sute de ani pe cale orala.

Articole romanesti in National Geographic - de Dinu Lazar la: 23/10/2004 09:02:10
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
"Le platim destul de bine pe cele ce vor fi tiparite."

Ce e aia "destul" de bine? As fi curios sa stiu.

Exista un "cost of doing business" unde se aduna toate cheltuielile si e foarte simplu de calculat costul de fabricatie al unei fotografii sau al unui reportaj.
Exista pe net nenumarate ghiduri de preturi si de modele de calcul si liste dedicate maririi gradului de cultura economica al fotografilor.
Un exemplu ar fi ghidul australian de la
sau paginile
http://www.johnharrington.com/rates/
ori
http://lifes-work.biz/asmp112002art.pdf
si nenumarate altele.
Bun, sa zicem ca noi suntem mai de cacao si ne multumim cu un salariu invizibil; dar costurile cu sculele, softurile, computerele, sunt maimari la noi decit la ei.
Pina la urma, la noi e mult, mult mai scump sa fii fotograf decit "dincolo" si mult, mult mai putin rentabil, tinind cont de banii care se pot obtine de la editorii din tara.

Oricum ideea de a face la gramada materiale care poate plac, poate nu plac, din care unele sa ajunga tiparite, mi se pare pur romaneasca.

In lumea civilizata se face asa; merge fotograful cu book-ul la revista si acolo marele jmekercu ochi de vultur din redactie, decide: mda, asta e bun sa faca un material despre aia, asta despre aia, asta despre aia.
Se vorbeste in principiu cite pagini sunt necesare, se discuta un model de paginatie ( fotograful sa aiba si imagini pe lat, si pe inalt, si cutare, si cutare, si detalii, si atmosfera) si omul merge si face materialul si e platit la zi sau la bucata de poza si isi face in asa fel cheltuielile incit sa ramina totusi si cu un infinit de mic profit.

Exista, la ei, mari fotografi care pe listele de discutii ii educa pe incepatori:

You have NOT been hired until you tell them what your fees and expenses are and they agree in writing to pay that amount. What if you tell them you charge $2000 per photo after you have shot the job? Do you think they will pay you? A lot of photographers work this way. Someone hires them to do photography, never talks price and then they call around after the shoot and ask what they should charge. If it is more than the client expected to pay, then they either except what the client wanted to pay (in which case they get screwed and the client assumes the photographer was trying to screw them to start with) or they stick to their price and tick the client off, both of which lead the client to be hard nose and abusive with photographers in the future.

Sorry for the bluntness, but I think a lot of the problems we have
today are a result of some photographer's reluctance to deal with price
and terms and conditions in advance for fear of not getting the work.

So let's assume that you do not have the job. Gather all the
information you need from the client about the shoot and how the
photographs will be used. This includes: how many finished photos they
expect to end up with, do they want variations to choose from, how many
books will they be printing, how long do they want to distribute that
amount, will they just be distributed in guest's rooms or elsewhere,
etc, etc.

Once you have that information, put together an estimate in writing
that spells out the exact license that you are granting, the creative
fee and prep fees you will be charging along with all the expenses
involved in the shoot. Include your terms and conditions with the
estimate and ask the client to review the estimate and T&C and call you
if they have any questions or want to discuss anything. If they have no
question and approve they should sign the estimate and send it back to
you.

Try to partner with the client to find a way to give them what they
need( which is usually different from what they want) within or close
to their budget. This may mean cutting things out of the shoot, doing
fewer variations, fewer finished photographs used, smaller print run,
less usage, etc. A lot of times what they start out wanting in usage
and what they want to spend are far different from where it ends up.
The important thing is to work with them to try and find a way to make
it happen. If you express your desire to work with them and they
respond in kind, a lot of times you can work it out so everyone wins.
If not , they realize you may be more expensive than they can afford
now, but you are someone who is willing to try and find a way to make
it work and they may hire you in the future when they can afford you.

Be forewarned that there are clients who want it their way regardless
and if they can't get it , will blow you off and move on to the next
photographer until they find one who is desperate enough to work with
them.

Base your initial fee on a specific print run for one year's
distribution (assuming that's what they want). In the estimate under an
options section, quote them a percentage of the original fee (usually
50-75%) of the original fee for a second year and an additional
percentage for each additional year. If they want to license the second
year (or more) in advance lower the percentage some.

I suspect they just don't want to tell you. They have to know how many they are printing. How else can they place the order with the printer?
If they won't give you a print run, specify a print run in your
estimate or better yet ask them if you limit the print run to 100,000
will that be enough, and base the estimate on that. Chances are they'll
say, "heck no, we won't print more than 10,000", because they realize
the price will be higher if it's based on 100,000.

Cu ce nu ma impac eu la filme - de (anonim) la: 25/10/2004 19:43:04
(la: Filmele americane/vs/ filmele europene)
Cu ce nu ma impac eu la filmele americane e eroul principal.
Are in general toate atributele cetateanului american modern: luptator, familist, iubitor cu copiii, animalele si batranii. E moralist. E fidel institutiei familiei. Are ingredientele spiritului de echipa sau team-working-ului, dar are si spirit de initiativa, si nu odata, solidar si constient de puterea sa se hotaraste sa salveze situatia sau lumea.
Calitatile lui se identifica oarecum cu cele cerute la orice interviu de munca.
E decis sa lupte contra oricarei injustitii si in general se sacrifica pentru ca binele sa iasa ca untdelemnul etc etc
Cand ai astfel toate ingredientele unui personaj preferat, de tip ¨default¨, se poate ¨optimiza¨ prin umor, viclenie, fizic, implanturi neuronale etc.
Astfel ii avem pe Bruce Willis (simpatic fara doar si poate), pe Will Smith (o clona in varianta black), pe Harrison Ford, pe Arnold, pe Depp, pe Cruise etc, si ii intalnesti nu doar in New York cat si la Washinton, nu doar in deserturile arabe dar si, mai nou, in Grecia Antica sau in coloseumurile romane.
Personal am senzatia ca nu mai ai loc de ei in nici un moment.
Cu o alta chestie cu care nu ma impac e cinematograful american ca barometru a relatiilor externe americane. Nu vreau sa ma bag in politica, cel putin nu aici, insa daca ne amintim, in perioada razboiului rece eroul american solo sau in grup lupta contra unor amenintari ruse sau a unor dusmani rusi, cu mici exceptii.
Ulterior au urmat tarile arabe, si azi asistam in unele filme, la tot felul de conspiratii francezo-germane (europene in general) care tulbura linistea Planetei si care dau bataie de cap servicilor secrete americane.
Insa daca frenchfries au fost pentru o vreme liberty, ne putem astepta la orice.
Nu stiu daca ati vazut vreunul din filmele astea: Go, Lost in Translation, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Night On Earth (super in opinia mea), insa e tot ce-mi vine in minte acum. Precis mai exista, sigur se produce film bun american, insa e acoperit de productii nule.

Imi pare bine ca te-am facut sa razi in hohote.Nu stiu daca ti s-a intamplat vreodata in viata(probabil te crezi perfect si vreun Phd in ale literaturii)sa faci fara voia ta vreo greseala ortografica?
Am vazut la Cafenea greseli gramaticale cu gramada,nu ma intereseaza acest lucru incat sa ma leg de acea persoana.
In mod evident il aperi pe Bush in care crezi,si e treaba ta,nu te opresc eu sa nu votezi pe cine crezi,totusi cel putin ai observat cata prostie emana din el acest om?
Nu te fac sa razi greselile lui de agramat,ILLITERATE,si nonsens pe care le debiteaza.In schimb vezi un cuvant gresit din viteza la mine si tragi concluzii, ca de obicei multi ca tine ce se ascund in spatele cinismului si ironiei.

Ei bine,deci eu n-am avut parte de scoala,cel putin nu am dezertat din armata 1 an intreg sau am trecut ca rata prin apa la Yale pe baza de tatic.
E adevarat ca si eu am baut f. mult in trecut si luat droguri,dar te asigur ca ...ALITERATU a consumat mult mai mult ca mine!

Nu stiu cu ce te ocupi de-ti dai atata mare importanta.Am sa-ti spun totusi un lucru:aliteratu de mine care deci n-am avut prea multa parte de scoala,a scris un poem care a fost ales din sute de mii din USA sa fie publicat intr-un volum de culegeri cu cele mai bune poezii din USA,ca poet nou alaturi de poeti americani deja consacrati.Si acum pe langa arta de advertising ce fac pt. reclame Tv voi scrie mai multe poezii sa fie publicate in volumul meu personal pt. publicare in tara.
Deci inchei si te las in sucul tau propriu.HA HA HA

LOVE&PEACE,

Comentariu de Zell Miller, senator democrat din Georgia. Imi cer scuze, dar mi-e prea lene sa traduc. Enjoy.

I tried to tell you . . .
Democrats repel voters, who put faith in freedom

Published on: 11/04/04
America's faith in freedom has been reaffirmed. With the re-election of President Bush, America recommitted itself once again to expanding freedom and promoting liberty. Only the 1864 re-election of Abraham Lincoln, the 1944 re-election of Franklin Roosevelt and the 1980 election of Ronald Reagan rival this victory as milestones in the preservation of our security by the advancement of freedom.


This election validated not just freedom, but also the faith our Founding Fathers placed in average folks to navigate the course of this great nation. By weighing the greatest issues at the gravest times and choosing our path, ordinary people have again accomplished extraordinary things. With courage and caution, rather than fear and timidity, the voters chose a path to ensure others would enjoy the same freedom to set their own path.

This election outcome should have been implausible, if not impossible. With a litany of complaints — bad economy, bad deficit, bad foreign war, bad gas prices — amplified by a national media that discarded any pretense of neutrality, a national opposition party should have won this election.

But the Democratic Party is no longer a national party. As difficult as the challenges are — both real and fabricated — Democrats offered no solution that was either believable or acceptable to vast regions of America. Tax increases to grow the economy are not a solution that is believable or acceptable. Democratic promises of fiscal responsibility are unbelievable in the face of massive new spending promises. A foreign policy based on the strength of "allies" such as France is unacceptable. A strong national defense policy is just not believable coming from a candidate who built a career as an anti-war veteran, an anti-military candidate and an anti-action senator.

Democratic Party policies haven't sold in large sections of America in decades, and the only success of Democrats in presidential elections for 40 years was when they pitched themselves as pro-growth, low-tax, strong-defense, fiscally responsible, values-oriented candidates. Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton hummed the tune but never really sang the song, and that's why Democrat prospects have gone south in the South. In 1980, the South had 20 Democrats and just six Republicans in the Senate. As recently as 1994, the Senate had 17 Democrats and nine Republicans from the South.

A decade later, the number had reversed to 17 Republicans and nine Democrats. With this election, it is 22 Republicans and just four Democrats from the South. When will national Democrats sober up and admit that that dog won't hunt? Secular socialism, heavy taxes, big spending, weak defense, limitless lawsuits and heavy regulation — that pack of beagles hasn't caught a rabbit in the South or Midwest in years. The most recent failed nominee for president stands as proof that the national Democratic Party will continue to dwindle. The South has gone from just one-fourth of the Electoral College in 1960 to almost a third today. To put this in perspective, that gain is equal to all the electoral votes in Ohio. Yet there was not a single Southern state where John Kerry had any real chance. Would anyone like to place bets on the electoral strength of the South by 2012? Maybe they should tax stupidity. When you write off centrist and conservative policies that reflect the will of people in the South and Midwest, you write off the South and Midwest. Democrats have never learned from the second or third or fifth kick of a mule. They continue to change only the makeup on, rather than makeup of, the Democrat Party.

And so we have a realignment election. For the first time, in an "us vs. them" election and in the toughest of situations, Republicans have been re-elected to the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. Confronting an opposition that can win a divided electorate in the worst of times and that has a growing electoral base, the national Democratic Party has a choice: continue down this path toward irrelevance or reverse course. As the last Truman Democrat, I hope my party makes the right choice but know I will not be allowed to be part of it. Such is the price you pay when you love your nation more than your party.

And so while I retire with little hope for the near-term viability of the party I've spent my life building, I retire with a quiet satisfaction that after witnessing the struggle of democracy over communism and fascism, the fear I once held that America might not rise to meet this new challenge of terrorism has vanished like a fog under the radiance of a new dawn. While the threat is still real, the shadow looming across a promising future is gone.

And the credit for that goes to one man. Like the last lion of England, Winston Churchill, George W. Bush has stood alone and risked all to give the world a new, clearer path to the advancement of freedom.

Abraham Lincoln, in his second annual message to Congress, stated: "In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom for the free — honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last, best hope of earth."

George Bush has injected into a region of enslavement an incurable dose of freedom, and thus nobly saved that "last, best hope of earth" — free men.

uite versurile, si daca esti cuminte iti pot da cantecul prin yahoo messenger in uichend ;)

I can feel the darkness reaching in
As I touch the place you may as well have never been
Love can hurt much more than one can bear
When a heart beats for someone who's not there

[Chorus:]
How many times
Must I tell myself that you're gone
When will the rest of me wake up
And see what went wrong
So wrong
And turn on the light, pick up the phone
And just call
And lay pride aside
If I had any sense at all

Voices call that only I can hear
Who would have thought this love was something I would fear
Almost hold, almost smell, almost taste
On my mind, in my heart, on my face

[Chorus:]
How many times
Must I tell myself that you're gone
When will the rest of me wake up
And see what went wrong
So wrong
And turn on the light, pick up the phone
And just call
And lay pride aside
If I had any sense at all

Oh, just lay pride aside
If I had any sense left at all

La intrebarea ta am incercat - de nebunica la: 26/11/2004 15:17:45
(la: Ce vor femeile?)
La intrebarea ta am incercat sa-mi raspund acum ceva vreme:

nu vreau decat sa iubesc si sa fiu iubita
vreau sa ofer si sa primesc
vreau oameni frumosi langa mine
vreau caldura, siguranta
vreau sa ma cuibaresc in bratele lui la sfarsitul unei zile plina de nimicuri si sa-i simt caldura
vreau sa facem numai dragoste
vreau sa-mi deschid sufletul si sa-l las sa intre pentru totdeauna
vreau sa-l visez ziua
vreau sa ma viseze noaptea
vreau sa stam pe canapea si sa ne uitam la un film bun, cu doua cesti cu ciocolata calda, fierbinte...
vreau ca atunci cand ma vede sa i se lumineze fata
vreau ca atunci cand ma priveste sa ma oglindesc in ochii lui cu toata fiinta mea
vreau ca atunci cand suntem impreuna sa rada cu ochii
vreau sa nu plece niciodata de langa mine

nu vreau minciuna
nu vreau ura
nu vreau indiferenta
nu vreau lucruri complicate
nu vreau jocuri periculoase
nu vreau cuvinte fara acoperire
nu vreau sa fug
nu vreau sa ma sperii
nu vreau nimic din ce m-ar putea rani...poate o face fara sa stie...

si la intrebarea care te macina...nu pot sa-ti dau decat un singur raspuns:
priveste-o ...si daca te invaluie caldura...nu trebuie decat sa-i intanzi mana si sa-i zambesti... :-)


So cruel...(U2)

We crossed the line
Who pushed who over
It doesn't matter to you
It matters to me

We're cut adrift
We're still floating
I'm only hanging on
To watch you go down
My love

I disappeared in you
You disappeared from me
I gave you everything you ever wanted
It wasn't what you wanted

The men who love you, you hate the most
They pass through you like a ghost
They look for you but your spirit is in the air
Baby, you're nowhere

Oh... love... you say in love there are no rules
Oh... love... sweetheart...
You're so cruel

Desparation is a tender trap
It gets you every time
You put your lips to her lips
To stop the lie

Her skin is pale like God's only dove
Screams like an angel for your love
Then she makes you watch her from above
And you need her like a drug

Oh... love... you say in love there are no rules
Oh... love... sweetheart...
You're so cruel

She wears my love like a see-through dress
Her lips say one thing
Her movements something else
Oh love... like a screaming flower
Love... dying every hour... love

You don't know if it's fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher
Head in heaven, fingers in the mire

Her heart is racing, you can't keep up
The night is bleeding like a cut
Between the horses of love and lust
We are trampled underfoot

Oh... love... you say in love there are no rules
Oh... love... sweetheart...
You're so cruel

Oh... love... to stay with you I'd be a fool
Sweetheart... you're so cruel

poeziile mele preferate... - de nebunica la: 29/11/2004 14:07:10
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)
1. E.E. Cummings - you said Is (XIII)

you said Is
there anything which
is dead or alive more beautiful
than my body,to have in your fingers
(trembling ever so little)?
Looking into
your eyes Nothing,i said,except the
air of spring smelling of never and forever.

....and through the lattice which moved as
if a hand is touched by a
hand(which
moved as though
fingers touch a girl's
breast,
lightly)
Do you believe in always,the wind
said to the rain
I am too busy with
my flowers to believe,the rain answered




2. E.E. Cummings - i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)



3. Edgar Allan Poe - Alone

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view


4. E.E. Cummings - I Am A Beggar Always


i am a beggar always
who begs in your mind

(slightly smiling, patient, unspeaking
with a sign on his
chest
BLIND)yes i

am this person of whom somehow
you are never wholly rid(and who

does not ask for more than
just enough dreams to
live on)
after all, kid

you might as well
toss him a few thoughts

a little love preferably,
anything which you can't
pass off on other people: for
instance a
plugged promise-

the he will maybe (hearing something
fall into his hat)go wandering
after it with fingers;till having

found
what was thrown away
himself
taptaptaps out of your brain, hopes, life
to(carefully turning a
corner)never bother you any more



5. e.e. cummings - the boys i mean are not refined

the boys i mean are not refined
they go with girls who buck and bite
they do not give a fuck for luck
they hump them thirteen times a night

one hangs a hat upon her tit
one carves a cross on her behind
they do not give a shit for wit
the boys i mean are not refined

they come with girls who bite and buck
who cannot read and cannot write
who laugh like they would fall apart
and masturbate with dynamite

the boys i mean are not refined
they cannot chat of that and this
they do not give a fart for art
they kill like you would take a piss

they speak whatever's on their mind
they do whatever's in their pants
the boys i mean are not refined
they shake the mountains when they dance

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever...".
