DEHA este pe scurt un hormon - de Nico la: 10/10/2003 19:13:41
(la: D.H.E.A. sau tineretea vesnica ???)
DEHA este pe scurt un hormon produs de corpul uman: dehydroepiandrosteron. Este responsabil pentru producerea si reglarea steroizilor si hormonilor sexuali. S-a observat ca nivelul acestui hormon scade dramatic cu varsta ( la 70 ani este 5% comparativ cu nivelul de la 20 ani). Acest fapt a dus la deductia logica - dar necomfirmata din pacate - ca suplimentand acest hormon imbatranirea poate fi reversata sau macar incetinita. Nu este total exlusa posibilitatea metionata de tine ... teoretic vorbind!


Pentru vorbitorii de limba engleza ( De pe Internet adunate!)):
"DHEA" is short for dehydroepiandrosterone, a hormone naturally produced in the human body in the adrenal gland.
For what is DHEA used?
DHEA / Dehydroepiandrosterone is the sole precursor hormone responsible for the production and regulation of every other steroid and sex hormone in the body. It has recently been discovered that bodily levels of DHEA decline with age (a typical 70-year old will have about 5-10% the DHEA of what a typical 20 year old produces), leading to the (logically correct and possible) hypothesis that supplementing DHEA will reverse or halt the aging process. This is probably just another round of humankind's hope for the discovery of the Fountain of Youth, but there are some valuable elements to DHEA supplementation that are worth investigating. For example, declining levels of DHEA are implicated in
Alzheimer's disease
diabetes
arthritis
obesity
cancer
atherosclerosis and heart disease
lupus

Yasser Arafat has private bank accounts worth more than $800 million built up with funds designated as aid to the Palestinian Authority, according to a report.
From the appropriated money, he transfers $100,000 a month to his wife Suha, who lives in Paris with their daughter, according to the CBS News program "60 Minutes," which will air the report Sunday.
The investigation was assisted by PA Finance Minister Salam Fayad, who is trying to trace all of the money allocated to the PA that never reached its intended destination.
The CBS investigation confirms previous reports.
A recent International Monetary Fund audit revealed Arafat diverted $900 million from the PA budget into bank accounts under his control.
In 1998, the European Union discovered through an audit of its own that $20 million designated for low-income housing was used to build a luxury apartment complex for top PA officials and Arafat associates.
A former Arafat treasurer charged last year Arafat transferred more than $500 million in international aid to personal account.

150.000 de evrei - in armata lui Hitler?
Circa 150.000 de soldati de origine evreiasca au fost inrolati in armata germana in timpul lui Adolf Hitler, potrivit unei carti aparute saptamana trecuta in Germania. Dupa decenii de cercetari laborioase, istoricul american Bryan Mark Riggs scoate la iveala in cartea sa "Soldatii evrei ai lui Hitler" faptul ca, in ciuda "Legilor de la Nurenberg", din 1935, care excludeau barbatii de origine evreiasca de la serviciul militar, nu mai putin de 60.000 de persoane cu un parinte evreu si 90.000 de persoane cu un bunic evreu au luptat in Wehrmacht (armata germana), relateaza cotidianul german "Die Welt". De-a lungul anilor, autorul lucrarii a intervievat peste 400 de fosti soldati cu origine evreiasca si a constatat ca marea majoritate a "corciturilor", cum erau numiti cei care aveau un parinte sau un bunic evreu, se considerau germani si au ramas in armata chiar si dupa decretul lui Hitler din 1940, care stipula ca toti barbatii clasificati drept partial evrei sa fie dati afara din armata.

Tunick : oamenii ca o turma - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/11/2003 09:50:06

aaa...sigur ca arta ar trebui sa transmita idei, da` fiecare arta cu meshteshugu` sau... una e meshteshugu` si alta e ideea... una fara alta nu se poate... ai o gara cu o suta de femei goale? Asta e o idee. Si? In conceptia mea asta nu ajunge... trebuie lumina, cadru, atmosfera... iacata ce spun cei mari:

"Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself: "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print - my own personal statement of what I feel and want to convey - from the subject before me?"

-Ansel Adams

It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen"
to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

-John Sexton

Bene sh-atata ...oricum ...mult! - de Alice la: 01/12/2003 13:46:48
(la: Cohen)
D-aia uite:

"What is a saint? A saint is someone who has achieved a remote human possibility. It is impossible to say what that possibility is. I think it has something to do with the energy of love. Contact with this energy results in the exercise of a kind of balance in the chaos of existence. A saint does not dissolve the chaos; if he did the world would have changed long ago. I do not think that a saint dissolves the chaos even for himself, for there is something arrogant and warlike in the notion of a man setting the universe in order. It is a kind of balance that is his glory. He rides the drifts like an escaped ski. His course is the caress of the hill. His track is a drawing of the snow in a moment of its particular arrangement with wind and rock. Something in him so loves the world that he gives himself to the laws of gravity and chance. Far from flying with the angels, he traces with the fidelity of a seismograph needle the state of the solid bloody landscape. His house is dangerous and finite, but he is at home in the world. He can love the shape of human beings, the fine and twisted shapes of the heart. It is good to have among us such men, such balancing monsters of love."

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:

(la: Ce este un gentleman? (o parere victoriana))
Desi este foarte frumos citatul ales de tine (si convingator)eu cind am spus ce am spus m-am referit strict la ce am citit sub linkul afisat de Daniel . Un mic fragment:
´´He (the gentleman) has too much good sense to be affronted at insults, he is too well employed to remember injuries, and too indolent to bear malice. He is patient, forbearing, and resigned, on philosophical principles; he submits to pain, because it is inevitable, to bereavement, because it is irreparable, and to death, because it is his destiny. If he engages in controversy of any kind, his disciplined intellect preserves him from the blunder. [From The Idea of a University, 1852]

Probabil citeva cuvinte mi-au influentat impresia generala, mai degraba barbat cu caracter slab decit un gentleman....Si acelea sint: inevitable,resigned, irreparable, destiny.......

2 Time Magazine Journalists Hurt in Iraq
By The Associated Press

19 December 2003

(AP) -- A senior reporter and a veteran photographer for Time magazine
were wounded along with two U.S. soldiers when a grenade was tossed into
their Humvee, the military and the magazine said Thursday.

Time senior correspondent Michael Weisskopf and contributing
photographer James Nachtwey were traveling with a U.S. Army patrol in
Baghdad on Wednesday night when the attack occurred, a statement from Time
managing editor Jim Kelly said.

A military spokesman said they were with a unit of the Army's 1st
Armored Division.

The military official, who spoke only condition of anonymity, said one
of the journalists was severely wounded and the other was slightly injured.
Time said both were in stable condition and were awaiting transfer to a U.S.
military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.

Nachtwey is an award-winning photographer known for haunting images of
war and poverty. He was the subject of a 2001 Oscar-nominated documentary,
"War Photographer," and has won many awards. This year he shared a $1
million Dan David prize for documenting "the apocalyptic events of our
time."

Weisskopf is an award-winning correspondent based in Washington. He
covers national politics and investigations and was a finalist in the 1996
Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.

The Paris-based World Association of Newspapers has said that at least
16 journalists have been killed in Iraq this year. Many others have been
wounded.

In the last known incident, police said the editor of an independent
newspaper in the northern city of Mosul was shot and killed on Oct. 28.

Photographer Helmut Newton Killed in Crash

LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed fashion photographer Helmut Newton died Friday after his car sped out of control from the driveway of the famed Chateau Marmont hotel and crashed into a wall, police said. He was 83.

AP Photo

Newton, whose work appeared in magazines such as Playboy, Elle and Vogue, was best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos of women.

Newton apparently lost control of his Cadillac while leaving the Hollywood hotel, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman. It was unclear whether he became ill while driving.

People were on the sidewalk in front of the driveway, and the car brushed a photographer heading into the hotel before crashing into the wall.

Newton was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Harding said.

Newton was a trailblazer in the fashion photography world, exploring power, gender roles and an icy sexuality in his pictures.

His trademark "Big Nudes" series featured larger-than-life, black-and-white images of women that portray them as dominating the camera rather than as subjects.

Among the beautiful and powerful people Newton has photographed were Paloma Picasso, Pierre Cardin, Naomi Campbell, Jean-Marie Le Pen and Claudia Schiffer.

While Newton also photographed clothed celebrities and nature scenes, he favored photographing women, usually while they wore little more than high heels.

"He was a giant," said Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "He was a major talent that pushed the boundaries in terms of photography and influenced many, many other photographers in following generations."

The German-born photographer said in his 2002 autobiography that when he was 15, he told his father he wanted to be a photographer. The Berlin factory owner told him, "My boy, you'll end up in the gutter. All you think of is girls and photos."

Newton, who was Jewish, fled his homeland for Singapore in December 1938, a month after Nazi-led persecution programs began. He eventually settled in Australia and became a citizen, opening a small photography studio and changing his last name to Newton from Neustaedter.

He later took up residence in Monte Carlo, overlooking the Mediterranean — a frequent backdrop for his nude images.

In the prologue to his autobiography, he said his fascination with women dated back to when he was a toddler and recalled seeing his nurse "getting ready to go out, and she is half-naked" in front of a mirror. He described it as a defining moment in his life.

In October, he donated more than 1,000 pictures to a new gallery in Berlin, saying he was proud his work would now be on display in his hometown.

Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder called Newton's decision a "sign of reconciliation."

"You can chase a man out of his home but you can't rip his home out of his soul," Schroeder said in a letter read at the news conference announcing the donation.

Newton's coldly erotic imagery often alarmed feminists as well as those with tamer sensibilities.

A hosiery ad he shot, featured on a giant billboard in Times Square for a time, was banned from the side of New York City buses in 1998 because it was deemed to be too racy. It showed a rear-end view of a woman lying face-down, wearing only a pair of stockings. A side view of her bare breast also was visible.

Newton is survived by his wife, June, who works under the name Alice Springs. She was also a favorite subject for the photographer. In one 1973 series of photos, she was portrayed as Hitler wearing a cropped mustache, with model Jerry Hall posing as Eva Braun. The Newtons had no children.

Right-wing Romanian politician to visit Israel

By Amiram Barkat



Corneliu Vadim Tudor, the head of a radical right political party in Romania, intends to visit Israel in March.




News of his intention was relayed by Israeli businessman Nati Meir, who has been in contact with Tudor, the leader of the Greater Romania Party (PRM).

Haaretz has learned that Romanian President Ion Iliescu also intends to visit Israel at the end of March.

Meir, presenting himself as Tudor's adviser for overseas affairs, told Reuters news agency that Tudor will "seek forgiveness at the Western Wall."

In a speech given to Romania's parliament in 2002, and on other occasions, Tudor has claimed that Romania did not take part in the murder of Jews during the Holocaust. But Tudor is now aware that the Holocaust transpired in Romania, said Meir, adding that Tudor has sent Yad Vashem a letter about his country's culpability. Yad Vashem spokesmen, however, said they do not know anything about such a statement.

Since he announced his intention to take part in Romania's presidential elections, scheduled for September, Tudor has made several attempts to shed his reputation for anti-Semitism. But officials from Israel's Foreign Ministry and Yad Vashem believe Tudor's new stance is motivated by electoral calculations.

In past years, Tudor made several statements against Jews and foreigners and his party's official journal has been a warehouse for crude anti-Semitic opinions.

With Meir's help, Tudor met two months ago with Israeli media consultant Ayal Arad, and asked to retain his services. Arad said he is still considering whether or not to accept Tudor's offer. According to Arad, during their meeting, Tudor asked him about how he might persuade Jewish communities that he is not an anti-Semite.

At the end of November 2003, Tudor held a press conference, and said he retracts statements he made in the past about Jews. He stated that he "loves Jews," and denounced statements made by Iliescu to Haaretz about how the Holocaust wasn't distinctive to the Jews. Last month, Tudor dedicated a bronze statue of Yitzhak Rabin in Romania. Tudor invited Rabin's children to the ceremony, but they declined.

Ze'ev Schwartz, who chairs the association of Romanian-born Israelis, dismissed Tudor's recent performances as "a new element in the drama."

"This man is a Holocaust denier, and we simply do not believe him," Schwartz said. He added that he intends to help sponsor protest demonstrations of Holocaust survivors and Romanian natives during Tudor's visit.

Sharon defends plan to evacuate Gaza settlements

Associated Press Writer
JERUSALEM (AP) - Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Wednesday
defended his plan to dismantle virtually all Jewish
settlements in Gaza, amid new signs that the proposal is
threatening the stability of his government.
Ten lawmakers from the ruling Likud Party sent a letter to
Sharon threatening to abandon the prime minister if he
moves forward with his plans without their consent.
«We announce beforehand that it will be very difficult
for us to support this plan without the approval of the
Likud institutions on this sensitive subject,» the
lawmakers wrote. They added that they would not support the
entry of the opposition Labor Party into the government.
A senior official said Sharon would put his unilateral
disengagement plan - including removing some settlements
and imposing a boundary on the West Bank if peace talks
fail - before a national referendum, as demanded by Likud
lawmakers. The official, speaking on condition of
anonymity, said Sharon would welcome the idea of putting
the plan before the people, because the issue cuts across
ideological lines and «has overwhelming support among the
public.»
Labor said Tuesday that it would back Sharon's plan,
assuring him of a parliamentary majority even if two
ultranationalist parties quit the government.
But one of the lawmakers who signed Wednesday's letter,
Yuli Edelstein, claimed the group had enough support from
other Likud members to block any parliamentary majority for
Sharon.
Even if the effort fails, the letter reflected the
internal divisions that Sharon faces over his Gaza pullout
plan.
Sharon on Tuesday shrugged off the growing threats, saying
he is determined to go ahead with plans to remove 17
settlements in Gaza and three in the West Bank without
waiting for a peace deal with the Palestinians. He said he
would try to form a new governing coalition rather than
back down.
The prime minister's surprise announcement Monday has
divided Israelis into two camps: those who believe Sharon,
for decades the main architect of Jewish settlement
expansion, is truly changing course; and those who suspect
him of trying to sow confusion and deflect attention from a
widening corruption probe against him.
Sharon said Wednesday that his plan is not related to the
corruption probe, Israel radio reported. Speaking to
reporters at the Israeli parliament building, he said he
was moving forward in spite of his legal troubles, not
because of them.
Sharon, who has denied wrongdoing, is to be questioned by
police Thursday on suspicion he accepted bribes from an
Israeli real-estate developer.
Commentators said whatever Sharon's motives, his
declaration has created irreversible facts, and no future
prime minister could demand to hold on to parts of Gaza in
a peace deal with the Palestinians. «The words that were
uttered can never be taken back,» commentator Dan Margalit
wrote in the Maariv daily.
Opinion polls suggested that Sharon has broad public
support for dismantling most Gaza settlements, increasingly
seen by many Israelis as a security burden. Israel controls
one-third of the strip, while 1.3 million Palestinians
share the rest.
In his first public comment on the issue Tuesday, Sharon
avoided mention of Gaza but said he was determined to press
ahead with the removal of settlements.
«Not only is this difficult for the settlers, but also,
it is more painful for myself than anyone else in Israel,»
Sharon said during a visit of the coastal city of Ashkelon.
«But I've reached a decision and I am going to carry it
out.»
Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia told Palestinian
radio he wants to see «deeds, not words. We want to see
them leaving the whole Gaza Strip, leaving Gaza as
liberated Palestinian land and leaving us to concentrate on
their withdrawal from the West Bank.»
In the West Bank on Wednesday, the army said it had
arrested a senior operative in the militant Al Aqsa
Martyrs' Brigades in the village of Tubas. Palestinian
sources identified the man as Jihad Sawafta, who they said
had escaped an Israeli assassination attempt in 2002.
Senior aides to Sharon and Qureia were scheduled to meet
Wednesday in hopes of arranging a meeting between the two
prime ministers, the two sides confirmed. A summit would be
a crucial step in reviving the U.S.-backed «road map»
peace plan.
The talks were to focus on Israel's contentious West Bank
separation barrier - which the Palestinians oppose - and
Palestinian efforts to persuade militant groups to halt
attacks on Israelis, Palestinian officials said.
Efforts to bring the two men together have faltered since
Qureia took office in October, and the road map has been
stalled for months. But Qureia has come under pressure
recently from the United States and Egypt, a key mediator
between Israel and the Palestinians, to agree to a meeting.
The road map aims for an independent Palestinian state,
alongside Israel, by 2005.
«This is maybe their last opportunity to implement the
road map,» a senior Israeli official, speaking on
condition of anonymity, said of a possible summit.
A top security adviser to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat
on Wednesday accused the United States of «blackmailing»
the Palestinians.
Jibril Rajoub said the Americans have threatened to
disengage from the peace process unless the Palestinians
arrest those responsible for an October bomb blast in Gaza
that killed three Americans traveling in a diplomatic
convoy.
«You know that the Americans stopped their involvement
waiting for the results of the investigation,» Rajoub told
foreign journalists. «I think that this is blackmail.»
American officials have said they are disappointed with
the lack of cooperation by Palestinian security forces in
the search for the perpetrators.
Sharon has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he plans
to take unilateral steps in the West Bank and Gaza -
dismantling some settlements, redeploying troops and
imposing a boundary - if there is no progress on the road
map in the coming months.

Problema emigrarii - de (anonim) la: 18/02/2004 21:45:36
(la: De ce vreau sa emigrez)
Sint plecata din tara din Octombrie 1998. Aveam 26 de ani si... doua zile si... proaspata membra a Baroului Bucuresti. Aveam, totodata, un univers al meu, cu parametrii extrem de bine stabiliti si cu o mina de carti cistigatoare: familie, prieteni, profesie si un statut material foarte bun. Cu toate acestea am hotarit sa ma marit si, prin casatorie, m-am stabilit la NY. In 2000 am fost admisa la NY Law School pentru echivalarea studiilor iar in 2001 am luat examenul de barou pentru statul NY. A fost un efort crincen, atit intelectual (32 de materii) cit si fizic (12 ore de examinare). Am crezut ca, odata acest hop trecut si capatindu-mi un statut profesional extraordinar aici, mi-am rezolvat (mai) toate problemele. In fond sint maritata, nu? De fapt nu a fost asa de loc. Imi pare rau sa dezamagesc autorul acestui articol dar, din pacate, societea occidentala nu functioneaza deloc asa cum credem noi, atunci cind ne aflam inca in Europa de Est. Ne-am ivatat prost sa-i idealizam atit valorile cit si modul de functionare care nu este deloc impecabil, din contra. De la mizeria fizica in care oamenii traiesc, cel putin unii din ei, pina la oameni care mor cu zile in spitale din cauza negljentei doctorilor si pina la incultura crasa care este evidenta peste to. Vorbesc despre copii de 11 ani care nu stiu sa citeasca si de matematica de clasa a IX-a pe care noi o faceam in clasa a V-a. Vorbesc despre parinti care isi dau in judecata parintii pentru $300 si reciproc. Vorbesc despre modul de-a dreptul inuman in care se munceste aici, pentru aproape nimic si despre faptul ca esti SINGUR pentru ca nu ai timp de prieteni, sa ti-i faci si, daca ai totusi noroc sa ai doi sau trei, nu ai timp de ei, pentru ca pleci dimineata la 7 si vii seara la noua. Ca sa nu mai vorbesc despre faptul ca nu exista, pe fond, un sistem de pensii decit pentru lucratorii de stat sau guvernamentali. Ceilalti sint condamnati sa-si incheie activitatea la peste 60 de ani si sa primeasca o pensie de $1000/luna. Ca sa va dau o idee despre ce inseamna $1000/luna in NY am sa va spun ca un apartament cu 2 camere se inchiriaza aici cu $1200. In fine, ar fi multe de explicat dar, din pacate, nu pot exprima toata durerea unui emigrant intr-o pagina. Dealtfel nici nu stiu citi din cei ce vor citi aceste rinduri ma vor crede sau intelege. Imi este greu, pentru ca traiesc intr-o societate uscata, fara nici un fel de valori, in afara de cele pecuniare, infectata de ipocrizie si de o forma de comunism cu o fata care este alta decit cea pe care o stiam noi. Aici nu exista Ceausescu, in schimb exista marile corporatii care isi spala angajatii pe creieri cu slogane de tipul "team work" si "the difference between a team and a group of people is that the team is after a common goal, which is to help the corporation grow". Intrebarea care se naste logic intr-un astfel de context este "Bun, si ce am eu la afacerea asta? Daca corporatiei ii merge mai bine salariul meu e tot acelasi" Am atins si subiectul asta pentru ca inceputurile mele aici nu au fost deloc glorioase, din contra: am lucrat 7 luni vinzatoare la Lancome, inconjurata de femei care imi puteau fi mama si care aveau coeficientul de inteligenta al unui foetus si care erau foarte diligent dirijate de cite o mucoasa de 22 de ani proaspat absolventa a unui colegiu.
In concluzie, vreau sa va spun ce am descoperit un pic cam tirziu, dar poate ca nu prea tirziu: ceea ce conteaza in viata sint familia si prietenii, fara a se intelege ca nu are importanta saracia. Dar, un nivel de viata decent (ca al autorului articolului pe care il comentez) alaturi de caldura familiei si a prietenilor si a tot ceea ce cunosti sint mai importante decit sute sau milioane de dolari. De aceea contemplez serios ideea revenirii definitive in Romania, chiar cu pretul de a-mi sacrifica casatoria. Refuz sa accept ca ve veni o zi cind voi fi incapabila sa mai functionez normal in societate. Spun asta pentru ca imi dau seama ca ma indrept cu pasi rapizi si siguri spre acest dezastru. Am sa inchei cu o zicala americana: "Grass is always greener on the other side", din pacate.
