(la: misoginism si feminism)
...apropo..., barbatul si femeia sunt egali, draga?

Nous, Femmes du Monde, dénonçons les violences et les différentes formes d’exploitation que les hommes nous ont fait et nous font subir depuis des millénaires :

pour nos pieds bandés
nos cous prisonniers des anneaux
nos sexes coupés ou cousus
nos lèvres à plateaux ou nos oreilles percées
pour les ceintures de chasteté ou le contrôle de notre virginité
pour les corsets qui nous étouffent
pour nos corps anorexiques ou engraissés selon leur loi
pour les femmes qu’ils privent d‘éducation, de liberté, d’autonomie
pour celles qu’ils enferment dans les harems ou aux foyers
derrière le voile, le tchador, le tchadri ou la burqa
pour les mariages précoces, les rapports sexuels imposés
les grossesses non désirées, les stérilisations forcées
les avortements de fœtus féminins
pour la polygynie, la répudiation, la pratique de la dot
la discrimination dans l’héritage
pour l’exploitation économique, l’esclavage domestique, la double journée de travail
pour les coups, les insultes, le harcèlement moral et sexuel
pour les viols privés ou collectifs
pour la pornographie, la prostitution
les femmes vendues dans le « mariage de jouissance » ou par le Crime organisé
pour les jets d’acide, la lapidation, la pratique du Sati,
pour les « sorcières » brûlées vives
pour les crimes d’honneur, les meurtres de femmes
pour les massacres religieux ou politiques
pour les petites filles qu’ils tuent et celles qu’ils empêchent de naître : il manque cent millions de femmes sur la terre…
pour le contrôle qu’ils ont exercé et continuent d’exercer sur nos vies
pour nos vies qu’ils nous ont volées
pour notre intelligence qu’ils ont étouffée
pour la division qu’ils ont instaurée entre nous pour nous maintenir en esclavage,
pour tous les crimes odieux que les hommes ont commis contre les femmes depuis des temps immémoriaux,
pour avoir fait de nous le symbole du MAL dans les religions misogynes du dieu qu’ils ont créé à leur image, un décret caractéristique de toute idéologie raciste,


Iata si-n engleza:

We, the Women of the World denounce the violence and the various forms of exploitation that men have inflicted and continue to inflict on us for millennia :

for our bound feet
our necks imprisoned in rings
our sex cut or sewn up
our plate-lips or our pierced ears
our chastity belts or virginity controls
our corsets that suffocate us
for our bodies anorexically starved or fattened according to their rules
for the women they deprive of education, liberty, autonomy
for the women shut into harems or in the home
behind the veil, the tchador, the tchadri or the burqa
for the precocious weddings, the imposed sexual intercourse
the unwanted pregnancies, the forced sterilizations
the abortion of female fetuses
for polygyny, repudiation, the dowry system
the discrimination in inheritance
for economic exploitation, domestic slavery, the double work day
for the blows, the insults, the moral and sexual harassment
for the private or collective rapes
for pornography, prostitution
women sold in “ temporary marriages ” or by Organized crime
for the acid throwing, the stoning and the rite of Sati
for the “ witches ” burned alive
for the honor killings, the murders of women
for religious or political slaughters
for the little girls they kill or prevent from being born : 100.000.000 women missing in the world …

for the control they have exercised and continue to exercise on our lives
for our lives that they have stolen
for our intelligence that they have smothered
for the divisions they have created among us to keep us enslaved,

for all the appalling crimes men have committed against women since time immemorial,
for having made us the symbol of EVIL in the misogynous religions they have created in their own image, a characteristic tenet of any racist ideology,

Cum fac altii bani din fotografie???? - de Dinu Lazar la: 18/10/2005 17:52:46
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Simplu: muncind.
Iata un raspuns pe tema asta:

There is enormous opportunity for stock photographers today, provided they are talented, business-focused and highly productive ... Far more opportunity than just a few years ago when all the challenges of digital workflow and distribution were still unclear.

I submit to the readership that success is not a question of any one agency or portal or platform or method. These days, one must diversify by creating a "pecking order" of submissions that cascades from the sales channels that create the highest dollar return per image, down to the lowest. At some point, pride and conscious must kick in.
But, that is more of a political issue than an economic one.

Every image (and its keywording) should be created at maximum quality - the best you can be. Then, I would suggest that each photographer find their Submission Hierarchy - an inverted pyramid with the most revenue coming from the top tier. Images that are rejected by each tier (or if that sales channel is non-exclusive and permits distribution
elsewhere) rotate to the next level for re-submission.
Eventually, all images will be making money someplace.
Methodical submission tracking is needed. Start as high on the list as the quality of your imagery will permit.

One possible Submission Hierarchy:

1. Mega-Marketers - the large, well-known agencies (that are also portals and distributors) 2. Paid inclusion of the photographer's choosing at these mega-marketers 3. Direct sales from a personal website (which must be searchable and e-commerce enabled) with direct marketing via search engines (ie, Google.com, StockPhotoFinder.com) 4. Mid-tier or specialty stock photo agencies (only names you've heard of) 5. A portal or several portals (the bigger, the better) 6. Subscription royalty-free sites (this is a quantity game) 7. Micropayment sites 8. The trash can

At some point, the effort to submit will not be worth the return on investment. At that point, you're better off to use your time to create something new than in squeezing out every last dime of value from an existing image. Remember to include your general office overhead (insurance, depreciation, etc.) as well as membership/service fees in determining if you're making or loosing money on submissions to each sales channel.

Potentially, one can make a few hundred dollars per image per year for every photo on file at the top of the list, sliding down to a few dollars per image at the bottom. At some levels, the quantity of images is more important than their quality or where they are on file.

Ultimately, the goal is to maximize your time creating. This is possible only by maximizing your return on time and investment during the submission process.

Victoria's Secret IPEX Bra
Victoria's Secret promotes the 'World's Most Advanced Bra' with its New IPEX Bra.
Victoria's Secret is heavily promoting its Body by Victoria IPEX Seamless Bra as the 'World's Most Advanced Bra'. A bold statement by a company known for its aggressive marketing and hype.

While Victoria's Secret may believe their new IPEX Seamless Bra is something of which to be proud, manufacturers of fine lingerie and upscale retailers such as Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie, www.pamperedpassions.com, have been offering seamless, molded and featherlite bras for years.

Pampered Passions, for example, has been offering its customers comparable products to the Victoria's Secret IPEX Seamless Bra for years. Seamless, molded microfiber bras are nothing new. They have been a favorite item of women for years because of their superior comfort. The 'Tisha' Seamless T-Shirt Bra from LeMystere, for example, has been a favorite at Pamepred Passions because of its comfort and fit, which is precisely why the Tisha Seamless T-Shirt Bra is on Oprah's Favorite list.

Other bras comparable to the hyped-up Body by Victoria IPEX Seamless Bra are the 'Sencia' T-shirt Bra from Chantell, the 'So Smooth' seamless bra from Felina as well as the 'Body Suede' seamless bra from Wacoal. All of these bras offer light weight molded foam or padding and the superior comfort offered by Micro Modal fiber, or microfiber.

Don't be fooled by another bold Victoria's Secret lingerie campaign. Shop around and compare features and prices as well as, ultimately, the comfort of each bra. The Victoria's Secret Body by Victoria IPEX Seamless Bra may use 'laser technology', but, afterall, it's not a piece of machinery. It's a seamless bra.

Violent dreams may hint at why dreaming evolved, researchers say
Oct. 18, 2005
Special to World Science

Twenty years ago, scientists discovered a bizarre disorder whose victims act out their dreams while asleep, often hurting themselves or their spouses in the process.
One patient kicked a hole in his bedroom wall, according to a paper published in a medical journal. Another tried to jump out a window. A third fired an unloaded gun, a fourth attempted to set his bed on fire. Still others tried to choke their wives.
Now, scientists say a new study has provided surprising insights into the condition, suggesting patients tend not only to act out their dreams, but to have many more violent ones than other people.

This, in turn, hints that the disorder could shed light on an old debate, the researchers claim: why dreams evolved, and what function they serve. One theory that deserves particular attention in light of the findings, they add, is that dreams evolved as a way to mentally rehearse threatening situations.

Dreams appear “severely altered” in the disorder, known as REM Sleep Behavior Disorder or RBD, wrote the researchers in the Oct. 11 issue of the research journal Neurology. Their study of 98 patients found that the patients reported having violent dreams more than four times as often as healthy people.

This was striking, the researchers added, especially given that past research has shown aggression, misfortune and other negative thoughts tend to weigh prominently even in healthy people’s dreams.

Yet the sleep disorder patients were no more violent in real life than ordinary, the researchers wrote, and some past reports have suggested they may be even less so.

The prevalence of the disorder is unknown, but estimates have ranged from 0.5 percent to 1 percent of the population. Patients are most often men, usually middle-aged or older.

The REM in the name of the condition stands for Rapid Eye Movement, a phase of sleep normally associated with dreaming. The name reflects the fact that patients act out their dreams. This isn’t the case with sleepwalking, a separate condition, which normally occurs in a different phase of sleep.

RBD is usually treatable. Doctors often prescribe the drug Clonazepam for the condition. Some physicians also argue that many cases can be treated without drugs, by taking steps to make the bedroom safer.

Patients often flail, kick and punch in their sleep. This often leads to injuries, though no deaths have been reported. If awoken, patients will often say they were dreaming of fending off attackers, protecting their families from intruders or running from a threat.

Healthy people don’t act out their dreams because the brain has a mechanism for immobilizing the body during the dreaming stage of sleep. But this mechanism malfunctions in RBD.

In the new study, Maria L. Fantini and colleagues at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, Italy, decided to see if patients also experience different types of dreams. Past reports suggested patients had more vivid or violent dreams, but the issue hadn’t been studied in detail, according to Fantini and colleagues.

They asked participants in their study simply to describe the most recent dream or dreams they could recall. Sixty-six percent of sleep disorder patients recounted at least one violent dream, compared with 15 percent of healthy people who were surveyed for comparison.

The patients’ dreams also tended to have different casts of characters, which may have been related to the threatening themes: more animals, and more strangers. But “Interestingly, sexual elements in dreams were never reported by patients,” wrote the researchers.

The violent dreams and the uncontrolled body movements in RBD likely result from the same underlying brain problem, Fantini and colleagues wrote —possibly hyperactivity in the brain stem, a primitive part of the brain connected to the spinal cord. A leading theory claims the brain stem is at the root of a brain network for dreaming.

Fantini and colleagues also said the findings draw attention to another theory, which addresses why dreaming evolved rather than how it physically occurs.

Proposed by Finnish psychologist Antti Revonsuo five years ago, the theory holds that dreaming evolved as a way to rehearse threatening situations, so that the dreamer can better handle them in real life.

For the vast majority of time that humans were evolving, the most common threatening situation was a wild animal attack, Fantini and colleagues noted. Dreams may reflect this.

Children dream particularly often of animal or monster attacks, they added. This may reflect that stage of evolution most closely, the researchers said, since all organisms tend to share traits with their evolutionary ancestors most closely when they’re young.

“Interestingly, in the present study, dreams in RBD were characterized by similar percentages of aggression and animal characters to those reported in children,” Fantini and her team wrote.

Consistent with their findings, they wrote, Revonsuo “suggested that RBD may originate from an inappropriate activation of the [brain’s] threat-simulation system, leading to an intensive threat simulation during dreams.”

The inside story - World War II

An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of
Monte Casino went to the local church for
confession. When the priest slid open the panel in
the confessional, the man said, "Father, during
World War II, a beautiful woman knocked on my door
and asked me to hide her from the enemy. So I hid
her in my attic."

The priest replied, "That was a wonderful thing you
did, my son! And you have no need to confess that."

"It's worse than that, Father. She started to repay
me with sexual favors."

The priest said, "By doing that, you were both in
great danger. However, two people under those
circumstances can be very tempted to act that way.
But if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are
indeed forgiven."

"Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind.
But I do have one more question."

"And what is that?"

"Should I tell her the war is over?"

BRONICA MEDIUM FORMAT BUSINESS TERMINATED - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/10/2005 02:12:50
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
October 14, 2005, Commack, New York — Tamron USA, Inc. announced today that it has discontinued the production of the Bronica RF645 6x4.5 range finder camera model along with its relevant interchangeable lenses and accessories. The discontinuation of this last Bronica model marks the termination of the Bronica brand business. Bronica withdraws from the medium format camera business after 47 years since its first model, the Zenza Bronica D, was introduced in 1959.

Due to the drastic worldwide shift to digital over the past few years, medium format business has suffered, particularly in the portrait and wedding photography segment, the core customer base for Bronica cameras. “I believe we all understand the issues at hand when it comes to the business of medium format,” stated Kenji Nakagawa, Sales Manager of Tamron headquarters’ Overseas Sales & Marketing Department in Japan. “We have been struggling to find the best possible solution for the medium format camera business under the Bronica brand, but after careful study and the comprehensive consideration of the market situation, we have concluded that there is no other choice but to end this business.”

Bronica sales have drastically dropped as age of digital photography rapidly eclipses the film era. The quick adoption and shift to digital technology by the core Bronica customer, professional portrait and wedding photographers, accelerated the decline in Bronica business faster than other brands of medium format equipment. “For many years, Bronica cameras have been the workhorses used to photograph hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of weddings around the world,” stated Stacie Errera, Chief Marketing Officer for Tamron USA, Inc. “However, for these photographers, who collectively made up a huge percentage of our installed customer base, digital SLRs produce satisfactory image results, higher creativity options and increased profits (after the initial issues of workflow and printing were worked out by most), which made the switch to digital almost unanimous among this group of professional photographers.”

Am cumparat un DVD care conti - de Cassandra la: 23/10/2005 15:39:40
(la: Ce muzica ascultati in ultima vreme?)
Am cumparat un DVD care contine muzica si un documentar despre Pandit Ravi Shankar compozitor si interpret de muzica traditionala indiana care a reusit sa combine acest tip de muzica cu cea a altor culturi. A fost unul dintre cei mai mari sitaristi. Printre prietenii sai se numara (apar in documentar) Yehudi Menuhin, George Harrison, Zubin Mehta, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Steve Potts. Va amintiti de influentele indiene in muzica grupului Beatles?
Shankar a experimentat cu jazzul publicind un album Improvisations in 1962. (John Coltrane a studiat un timp cu el ) In 1966 a dat un concert de sitar-vioara cu Menuhin.
In 1990 a colaborat cu Philip Glass (un compozitor care imi place mult)
George Harrison spunea despre Ravi: "Ravi Shankar is the Godfather of World Music"
melodii de dragoste - de casyana la: 27/10/2005 19:58:53
(la: Versuri din melodiile voastre preferate...)
1.The power of love - Celine Dion

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

(First chorus)
'Cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too
Much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side

(Repeat first chorus)

(Second chorus)
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away


2.De vei pleca - Iris & Felicia Filip

De vei pleca, sa iei cu tine
Doar noptile in ca re noi am fost
Nemuritori
Uitarea vine...te rog sa-mi spui
Acum ce are rost...

De vei pleca, de vei pleca
Cerul sa vegheze drumul tau

De vei pleca, de-ti va fi bine
Un inger voi fi eu...
Iubirea mea...tu sa ai grija
Prin vant si ploi atunci cand ai sa mergi
Nu ma uita, caci eu voi fi mereu
Pe unde treci!

De vei pleca, de-ti va fi bine
Un inger iti va spune visul meu
De vei pleca....



3.Cerul - Proconsul


Pasii mei s-au ascuns in umbra ta
Nu ne-am mai vazut de mult
In urma lor a ramas glasul pe care
Uneori il mai ascult

Te-am visat in oglinda cum zambeai
Cu chipul tau curat
Lumea s-a schimat de cand ne-am despartit
Si mi-e greu, mi-e tare greu sa uit de tine.

Daca cerul ar putea sa te-aduca in viata mea
As culege in palma o stea sa te am pe tine
Am sa-ti spun cand ai sa vii vorbe pe care le stii
Ti le-am spus si cred ca vrei sa le-asculti din nou.

Lumea mea s-a inchis in clipa in care
M-ai sarutat de ramas-bun
Ma intreb, pedepsit sa fiu eu oare
Sa nu te mai vad acum

Am trecut peste tot ce mi-a fost drag
Dar atunci nu m-am gandit
Lumea s-a schimbat de cand ne-am despartit
Si mi-e greu, mi-e tare greu sa uit de tine

Daca cerul ar putea sa te-aduca in viata mea
As culege in palma o stea sa te am pe tine
Am sa-ti spun cand ai sa vii vorbe pe care le stii
Ti le-am spus si cred ca vrei sa le-asculti din nou.

Acum cand noapte vine
Te vreau iar langa mine
Parfumul tau pe perna
Ma rascoleste.

Daca ar putea sa te-aduca in viata mea
As culege in palme o stea sa te am pe tine
Am sa-ti spun cand ai sa vii vorbe pe care le stii
Ti le-am spus si cred ca vrei sa le-asculti din nou.
Daca cerul ar putea sa te-aduca in viata mea
As culege in palma o stea sa te am pe tine
Am sa-ti spun cand ai sa vii vorbe pe care le stii
Ti le-am spus si cred ca vrei sa le-asculti din nou.

Lipsa de informare sau, mai r - de pegaS la: 01/11/2005 10:45:51
(la: Violenta: un "modus vivendi"?)
Lipsa de informare sau, mai rau, dezinformarea sta la baza ideilor preconcepute iar comoditatea le alimenteaza. Ne creem propriile definitii, ne stabilim propriile repere si ne raportam la acestea dupa propriile principii... asta in masura in care ne rezumam la observare. Cand trecem la critica - fie ea pozitiva sau negativa - e de preferat s-o facem in cunostinta de cauza ceea ce nu e si cazul dv.
Acel cineva are o vaga idee vis-a-vis de Hiphop avand in vedere informatia nu tocmai corecta pe care v-a furnizat-o.
Hiphop-ul ESTE o cultura - as spune chiar cu un potential enorm - manipulata, din pacate, de ceea ce numim showbiz. Cele 4 elemente (5, in acceptiuni mai noi) sunt MCing sau Rapping (partea vocala), DJing (tehnica bazata pe scratching, sampling & mixing ce asigura fondul sonor alaturi de compozitii proprii), Graffiti si B-Boying (Breakdance).. cea de-a 5-a ar fi Beatboxing (studiul si aplicarea muzicii facute cu ajutorul partilor corpului).
Originile genului si variile sale aspecte sunt mult prea complexe pt. a le putea expune aici - cei interesati pot arunca o privire la http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapping - la fel ca si raspunsul la intrebarea ta. Nu putem vorbi de un raspuns concret - Hiphop-ul este, ca de altfel orice manifestare artistica, o forma de exprimare libera (cu tot ce implica aceasta). Poate fi contra violentei, o poate promova sau poate fi parte neutra. Contrar ideii incetatenite conform careia Hiphop-ul trateaza exclusiv probleme sociale exista destule exemple in care personalul, abstractul, liricul primeaza partea muzicala fiind, de asemenea, in ton cu textul.
Cine are rabdare sa citeasca s-o faca, cine nu sa lase balta subiectul...

"I can recite the grass on the hill and memorize the moon
I know the cloudforms of love by heart
And have brought tears to the eye of a storm
And my memory banks vaults of forests and amazon river banks
And i've screamed them into sunsets that echo in earthquakes
Shadows have been my spotlight
As I monologue the night
And dialogue with days
Soliloquies of wind and breeze applauded by sun rays
We put language in zoos to observe caged thought (...)"
Saul Williams - Wine

"I played connect the dots with your beauty marks
And I ended up with picture perfect sheet music
I read your musical notes with a composer's eyes
And heard out song for the first time
My spine is still tingling, mental images of your fine tune
Is what I've been nodding my head to lately
Every now and then you can catch me humming
Your nudity under my heavy breath
I heavily suggest you resurrect
Your ancient neglected dust collector
If you distrust the distance in my seldom plucked heart strings
Sit stripped before your full length
Perform your reflection backwards
Maybe then you will understand the rhythm in my movement
Listen when the news is sent
Extend when the rules are bent
I'll be waiting to take your leave
Make me a victim of your two step
Make me an apprentice of your body parts
Teach me to dance to your beauty marks
I'm stepping on toes here and I don't care
It's hopeless, it's hopeless
It's hopelessness holding this openess to blow a kiss
So close your lips but don't get pissed
And throw a fist at this vocalist
I'm not emotionless, in fact I broke my wrist
When I wrote the list of all those I miss
This is my poker face, Mister Feel Nothing"
Sage Francis - Hopeless

"(...)There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
I'm a dinosaur with Jones Beach in my hourglass
Passing the time with serial killer coloringbooks and bags of marbles
Don't tell me you ain't the droid that held the match to the charcoals
Don't tell me Lucifer and God don't carpool
(This is our school)
I'm not trying to graduate to life at the curse on the lounge barstool
Head in a jar on the desk, feet dangling in a shark pool
(Man please) Man please
My name stands for my being
And my being stands for the woman who stood
And braved the storm could raise this evening
(Brother sun, sister moon, mother beautiful)
Yeah middle sibling suitable but far from son of excellence
(...) And I ain't getting any younger
My knuckles wear their bruises well
I've yet to lose that hunger
But only time can tell
Prodigal Son with a prodigal wish to sew that prodigal stitch
And crucify bigot voodoo doll on two popsicle sticks
See your name is Ambiguity
My name is something hands can't hold
But hearts part ocean scapes just to watch the starlet unfold (...)"
Aesop Rock - Battery

cred ca anul asta e deep fried, pentru ca anul trecut l-am facut la cuptor. Asta in caz ca nu-s invitat altundeva:))

all,
check this out!! Awsome!!
Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL has put up a very interesting page on their site.

It begins as a view of the Milky Way Galaxy viewed from a distance of 10 million light years and then zooms in towards Earth in powers of ten. 10 million, to one million, to 100,000 light years and then it finally reaches a large Oak tree.

You then venture into a leaf of the tree and ultimately into the proton of a cell and beyond.

If ever there was a witness to creation, FSU has captured it for our viewing pleasure!

Once you click on the site, the software does all the work. Sit back and imagine how perfect our universe is! You can play it forward and backward to be amazed over and over. At the end it says AUTO.... click on that and review the process in reverse!

Chiftele cu Spanac - de fefe la: 03/11/2005 23:35:36
(la: Retete aristocrate)
MEATBALLS WITH SPINACH
(Chiftele cu spanac)

2 pounds ground pork or 2 pounds ground pork sausage
(2 pounds carne de porc macinata sau carne de porc pentru cirnat)
8 oz. frozen spinach
(8 oz. spanc inghetat)
2 or 3 slices of white bread, cut into small pieces
(2 sau 3 felii piine alba, taiata in cubulete)
2 eggs
(2 oua)
garlic to taste
(ustoroi dupa gust)
salt & pepper to taste (if the sausage is seasoned you can skip the salt)
(sare is piper dupa gust, in cazul ca folosesti carne de cirnat nu mai adaugi sare)


Combine all of the above ingredients and form the meatballs (they should be slightly larger than the size of a golf-ball.) In a pan heat the oil on medium heat, place the meatballs making sure they remain in their round shape (do not flatten the balls). The meatballs are done when they are evenly brown on all sides. If the oil is too hot turn down the heat to a lower position. Remove the balls and place them on a papertowel to absorb some of the oil. The outside of the balls will be crispy and the inside should be soft and juicy. Enjoy!

Amesteci toate ingredientele de mai sus si formezi chiftelele (sa fie un pic mai mari decit o minge de golf) apoi intr-o tigaie incinsa cu ulei se asezi usor fara sa le strici forma rotunda. Chiftelele sint gata cind s-au prajit pe toate partile, daca uleiul se incinge prea tare, dai focul mai mic. Chiftelele se aranjeaza pe un platou sa se scurga de ulei in hirtie de bucatarie. Pe deasupra chiftelele vor fi crocante iar inauntru zemoase. Pofta Buna!

Same Difference: Twins' gene regulation isn't identical
Christen Brownlee
Although identical twins have identical DNA, they often harbor clear-cut differences: slight variations in appearance or stark distinctions in disease susceptibility, for example. Scientists have suggested that the interplay between nature and nurture could explain such differences, but the mechanism has been poorly understood.
A new study suggests that as identical twins go through life, environmental influences differently affect which genes are turned on and which are switched off.
Called epigenetic modification, such gene activation or silencing typically stems from two types of chemical groups that latch on to chromosomes as charms attach to a bracelet, says Manel Esteller of the Spanish National Cancer Centre in Madrid. Methyl groups that clip on to DNA tend to turn genes off. On the other hand, acetyl groups attaching to histones, the chemical core of chromosomes, usually turn genes on.
Suspecting that such epigenetic differences might account for variations between identical twins, Esteller and his team focused on the two chemical changes. The scientists recruited 80 pairs of identical twins, ranging in age from 3 to 74, from Spain, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.
After extracting DNA from blood, inner-cheek cells, and biopsied muscle, Esteller's team screened the twins' genomes for differences in epigenetic profiles between members of a pair. The researchers also had each twin or, for children, a parent answer a comprehensive questionnaire on the twins' health history and lifestyle, including diet, exercise habits, and alcohol or tobacco use.
In the youngest twins, the scientists found relatively few epigenetic differences. However, the number of differences increased with the age of the twins examined. The number of epigenetic differences in 50-year-old twins was more than triple that in 3-year-old twins. Esteller's group also saw especially large epigenetic differences between twins who had spent most of their lifetimes apart, such as those adopted by different sets of parents at birth, the team reports in an upcoming Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
