five distinct species of human. - de Muresh la: 30/03/2006 20:37:31
(la: Oare toţi oamenii de astăzi au origină comună ?)
http://go.hrw.com/resources/go_sc/bpe/HX10GJ14.PDF
Fragmente din articolul de mai sus, scrie de catre Dr. George Johnson in "On Science".
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Out-of-Africa
all along. theory was right
Researchers now recognize
with considerable bickering about the details five distinct species of human.
While the details of this story are still quite controversial among
paleontologists, the emerging consensus is that there have been at least five species of humans, all of them evolving in Africa and four of them migrating out in successive waves to Europe and Africa.


Did our species evolve only in Africa? Some paleontologists do not accept the last stage in this story. They reject the Out-of-Africa theory that Homo sapiens evolved in Africa then migrated out, replacing earlier
human species as it spread out over the face of the globe. Instead, they put forth a multi-regional proposal, sometimes called the Regional
Continuity Theory. This theory proposes a single very early migration out of Africa to Europe and Asia, followed by two million years of evolution in place. African, European, and Asian lineages evolved separately adapting to local conditions, yet all were linked evolutionarily by occasional migration. While distinct human races developed, the exchange
of genes promoted by occasional migrants prevented major genetic differences from persisting, so no race was able to become a separate species.
Who is right? One obvious way to sort out this problem without resorting to statistical shenanigans is to find enough genetic variation to make clear comparisons, and then ask if humans in Africa, Europe, and Asia have the same amount of it. Species accumulate genetic mutations over time, and if multi-regionalism is right, then humans in the three regions should have about the same amount.
On the other hand, if our species originated
only in Africa, and migrated out to Europe and Asia later, then you would expect that many more genetic mutations would have accumulated in Africa
for our species would have been there much longer
This presents a significant problem in studying human evolution, as human species have evolved within the last two million years, too short a time to accumulate many gene differences

A clear test of the multiregional proposal is possible using such highly variable portions of chromosomal DNA, as they provide a large number of
"markers" to compare
----------------
......... analyzing two highly variable segments on chromosome 12. Sixteen hundred individuals were examined in 42 populations.
A total of 24 different versions of the two segments were found, each a different but related gene sequence. Fully 21 of them were present in African populations, while 3 were found in Europeans, and only 2 in Asians and in Americans.
Since DNA accumulates mutations over time, the oldest populations of
humans should show the greatest number of genetic differences,
the European and Asian humans haven't been around nearly as long as African ones.


debate - gaselnita - de zaraza la: 03/11/2006 20:58:33
(la: Ati participa la un miting (mars) anti-terorism?)
iata ce am gasit, un debate, exact despre subiectul ce ne framanta.
eu tin cu "marcel", imi place de el. dau mai jos doua din mesajele lui, ca le spune mai bine decat mine. cine vrea, poate citi toata discutia la linkul din finalul mesajului:

Dear Mr. Hamilton:

As many of your fellow economists, you do not seem to be aware of the process by which money is created and the advantadge that any institution or country gets from this process.

Every dollar created either by the US government or by the US banking system is a debt upon the US economy because the holder can always present it and ask for a real asset.

The US is able to run a persistent balance of trade deficit without beign penalized in the form of currency devaluation, because the rest of the world obtains oil in excahge of your green papers. Those dollars, at the end of your exchange chain, end up in the central banks of the surplus countries (China, Japan, etc.) or in the oil producing countries. What do they do with these surplus of dollars? Well, the only reasonable thing to do with them is to buy US treasury notes, i.e. long term US debt hoping (in vain, I believe) they will ever be paid. In the mean time they collect a meager interest (again paid in dollars) which usually becomes a negative interest rate because of the dollar losing value, in real terms (inflation) or against other currencies.

All in all, it simply is a house of sand waiting for some wind to be blown away.

Taking euros for oil would allow the europeans to play the same game: living out of the rest of the world.

That is the reason why the US went to war in Iraq and this is the reason why it will try to stop the iranians to go ahead with their euro-denominated bourse. They may not go to war again, because they have their hands full in Iraq, and that is the iranian gamble.

The europeans are simply playing both hands: not to upset to much the US but trying to get their euros as good as oil.



si


If the oil-producers dollar holders want to dump their dolars and get euros in exchange, someone must take the dollars, right? Two things may happen:

- They cannot sell the dollars, because the European Central Bank doesn't take them. Yo know, it is one thing to go to your local bank and exchange a few thousand dollars for euros, and a different thing to find a buyer for tens of billions.

- Someone can take the dollars. In this case, the only thing that has happened is that the debt claim is now held by Europe against the US. What would the EU do with all these dollars? Exactly the same: buy US treasury notes. What else can you do with a currency that can not be interchanged for real goods and services (if they could be interchanged, the US would not have a commercial deficit).

So playing currency exchange games doesn't change the nature of the trick. The US is simply living beyond its means and the rest of the world is financing, for the time beign, the consumption spree.

You may ask, why does everybody seem to be playing according to US interests? Good question. You may realize, however, that the House of Saud, for example, is totally dependendent on US military support and most of their accumulated wealth is in dollar denominated assets that would go to the drain if the dollar collapses. Or you may also look at what happened to a guy called Saddam that tried to break the rules of the game.

It is a prisioner dilemma. I recommend you reading: SuperImperialism: The Origins and Fundamentals of US Supremacy, by Michael Hudson, Pluto Press, 2003.

Nu stiu daca e de bine, dar cartea mi-a placut mult.

Your life seems utterly bland and normal to the casual observer, but inside you are churning with a million tensions and worries. The company you surround yourself with may be shallow, but their effects upon your reality are tremendously deep. To stay above water, you must try to act like nothing's wrong, but you know that the truth is catching up with you. You're not crazy, you're just a little unwell. But no doctor can help you now.

(la: Is That All There Is...?)
Am tot cautat o traducere, dar din pacate n-am gasit nici una in romana :((.
In schimb am gasit in italiana (am inteles ca vorbesti fluent italiana). Sper sa-ti fie mai usor acum sa intelegi (vad din pacate ca alterneaza textul in engleza cu cel in italiana, mi-a fost cam lene sa-l aranjez...)


Mi ricordo di quando ero una ragazza
Our house caught on fire La nostra casa catturati sul fuoco
And i'll never forget the look on my father's face E Non dimenticherò mai lo sguardo sul volto di mio padre
As he gathered me in his arms Come mi ha raccolto tra le braccia
And raced to the burning building out on the pavement E corsi per la masterizzazione di costruzione sul marciapiede
And i stood there shivering Ed era i brividi
And watched the whole world go up in flames E guardato tutto il mondo va in fiamme
And when it was all over E quando è stato tutto
I said to myself Ho detto a me
Is that all there is to a fire? È che tutto ciò che c'è da un incendio?
Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?

Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Se questo è tutto, i miei amici, allora tenere ballo
Let's break out the booze and have a ball Let's break out the Booze e una palla
If that's all there is Se questo è tutto quello che

And when i was twleve years old E quando mi è stato twleve anni
My daddy took me to the circus Mio papà mi ha portato al circo
The greatest show on earthe La più grande mostra su earthe
And there were clowns E ci sono pagliacci
And elephants E gli elefanti
Dancing bears, Danza orsi,
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads E una bella signora in rosa calze volò alto sopra le nostre teste
And as i sat there watching E come i sabato ci guardano
I had the feeling that something was missing Ho avuto la sensazione che qualcosa mancava
I don't know what Non so cosa
But when it was all over Ma quando si è in tutto
I said to myself Ho detto a me
Is that all there is to the circus È che tutto ciò che c'è da circo

Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Se questo è tutto, i miei amici, allora tenere ballo
Let's break out the booze and have a ball Let's break out the Booze e una palla
If that's all there is Se questo è tutto quello che

And then i fell in love E poi Mi sono innamorato
With the most wonderful boy in the world Con il ragazzo più meraviglioso del mondo
We'd take long walks down by the river We'd prendere giù lunghe passeggiate in riva al fiume
Or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes O semplicemente sedersi per ora guarda negli occhi
We were so very much in love Siamo stati in modo molto amore
And then one day E poi uno giorno
He went away Egli se ne andò
And i'd thought i'd die E I'd thought I'd die
But i didn't Ma non ho
And when i didn't E quando non ho
I said to myself Ho detto a me
Is that all there is to love È che tutti vi è l'amore

Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep Se questo è tutto, i miei amici, allora tenere

I know what you must be saying to yourselvess So che cosa si deve dire a yourselvess
If that's the way she feels about it Se questo è il modo in cui si sente su di esso
Then why doesn't she just end it all Allora perché non ha solo fine tutto
Oh no. Oh no. not me. non io. i'm not ready for the final disappointment Io non sono pronto per la finale delusione
Cause i know just as well as i'm standing here talking to you Causa So altrettanto bene come sto qui a parlare di lei
That when that final moment comes Questo momento finale che quando viene
And i'm breathing my last breath And I'm a respirare il mio ultimo respiro
I know what i'll be saying to myself So quello che verrà detto a me
Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?

Is that all there is? È che tutto ciò che c'è?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing Se questo è tutto, i miei amici, allora tenere ballo
Let's break out the booze and have a ball Let's break out the Booze e una palla
If that's all there is Se questo è tutto quello che

(la: Petrolul)
For your enlightenment…


As you may know, Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota just 6 months ago.

They sent every Kenworth (9 trucks) we had here in Alaska to North Dakota and several drivers.

They just bought two new Kenworth's to add to that fleet; one being a Tri Drive tractor and a new 65 ton lowboy to go with it.

They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) for that division.

Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in ND than Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years.

Williston is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man camps down there since there are no rooms available.

Unemployment in ND is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I checked.

See anything in the national news about how the oil industry is fueling North Dakota 's economy?

Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest.

The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together."

The U. S.. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.

It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota , and extreme eastern Montana .

Check THIS out:

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates

it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable( 5 billion barrels), at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor.

They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.'

It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada.

I bought a bourgeois house in the Hollywood hills
With a truckload of hundred thousand dollar bills
Man came by to hook up my cable TV
We settled in for the night my baby and me
We switched 'round and 'round 'til half-past dawn
There was fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on

Well now home entertainment was my baby's wish
So I hopped into town for a satellite dish
I tied it to the top of my Japanese car
I came home and I pointed it out into the stars
A message came back from the great beyond
There's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on

Well we might'a made some friends with some billionaires
We might'a got all nice and friendly if we'd made it upstairs
All I got was a note that said "Bye-bye John
Our love's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
(Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on)

So I bought a .44 magnum, it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
'Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they busted me for disturbin' the almighty peace
Judge said "What you got in your defense son?"
"Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"
Fifty-seven channels and nothin' on

I can see by your eyes friend you're just about gone

Words Women Use...

FINE
This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
FIVE MINUTES
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.
NOTHING
This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. 'Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with 'Fine'
GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"
GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
LOUD SIGH
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"
SOFT SIGH
Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.
THAT'S OKAY
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow.
GO AHEAD
At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
PLEASE DO
This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done.You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay"
THANKS
A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome.
THANKS A LOT
This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing"

Ptr. cafegii........ & Parerea mea - de Dinu Lazar la: 25/09/2004 15:13:51
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Eu prefer sa fiu injurat - ma rog, injurat vorba vine, asa se exprima el, mai violent, ca omu` a facut rugby - de unu` care a stat in umbra fotografiei citeva zeci de ani si a dus shapca lu` Breson decit de o fiinta care nu agreeaza decit poze cu muci si organe, si am numit aici o fiinta care oficial e curator de fotografie in Ro.

La AAF, am avut multi amici care imi spuneau ba, io nu mai vin acolo ca e unu` Pandele care imi critica pozele de imi vine sa arunc aparatele.

Cred ca orice se zice despre o opera de arta - de bine, de rau, in sus si in jos- e o chestie pozitiva si laudabila.

Rau e cind nu se zice nimic, cind eseul sau lucrarile nu spun nimic si cind nu mesteca nimic linistea din borcanu` cu creatie, creatori si critici.

Si la mine Dl AP a gasit de nenumarate ori prilejuri - poate intemeiate, poate nu - sa dea cu sageti, pietre, vorbe si pareri; dar eu socot ca asa e bine si firesc sa fie, si daca un proiect rezista contrar celor disecate, bravo mie, si daca omul are dreptate, uite ce bine, macar nu am consumat mai multa energie in directia aia inutila.

Nu spun ca in cazul imaginilor care au stirnit discutia - si au mutat si contorul de trafic, ceea ce cred ca e foarte bine - modalitatea de analiza a domnului AP e un optim, si nici nu cred ca domnul PB a vrut sa jigneasca cu intrebarea domniei sale; mai important in acest stadiu al dezagregarii ideii de breasla mi se pare sa fim impreuna indiferent de micile sau marile diferente dintre noi sau de criticile mai mult sau mai putin intemeiate.

Cred ca in Ro se petrece un fenomen de pe urma caruia orice fotograf amator sau pro va suferi; lipsa de coeziune a breslei face sa apara multi neica nimeni care deranjaza orchestra, clienti tzepari care platesc putin sau de loc, pseudo artisti care umfla potul si iau caimacul la putinele fundatii care mai dau bani pentru arta, editori de imagine imbecili pe la reviste, clienti si redactori care vor o treaba ieftina si nu una buna, si as mai putea continua pina miine.

Ca cineva dinauntru spune ca nu-i place ceva, e foarte bine, indiferent ca are sau nu drepate.
Creste traficul, gradul de penetrare al numelui in sinapse creste, si valul care ramine e mai degraba pozitiv decit negativ.
Esential este sa raminem impreuna, sa aratam unuia ca se insala sau nu in timp, nu sa ne suparam fiecare si sa ne luam jucariile si sa plecam de fiecare data.

Spre deosebire de ce se intimpla la noi, iata ce ii preocupa la ora asta pe fotografii englezi - si ceea ce ar trebui sa ne preocupe si pe noi, daca am avea putin mai multa elasticitate si ceva dorinta de a ne manifesta ca o breasla de creatori maturi:

I believe the greatest danger facing photographers is the lack of appreciation of what professional imaging should be in terms of quality and creativity, and what it can do for the client. When the general public is being bombarded with ever increasing amounts of hype that this or that digital camera/printer will make them a pro, eventually they start to believe it.

Take the above and tie it in with the ever decreasing number of knowledgeable "commercial" buyers of our services and you have a recipe for the steady decline in expectations and thus demand for quality work.

It's down to every one of us to always present a professional image in the way we carry out our business, and to seize every opportunity to demonstrate to our clients, and those we meet that there is still a place for professional imaging. Digital has only changed the way we work, it does not of course remove the need for talent, continual learning, dedication and at times bloody hard work.

Asa ca eu zic sa raminem impreuna si sa explicam - dovedim - incercam - realizam - visam ca suntem o entitate, fotografii romani, nu niste copii care ne suparam una doua fiecare cu fiecare.
Astia suntem, si numarati de la stinga la dreapta, si de la dreapta la stinga, si de noi depinde sa aratam ca totusi suntem, asa cum dovedesc cei ce scriu in engleza mai sus ca sunt.

In atentia profesionistilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 02/12/2004 16:31:50
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Richard Kenward, Martin Orpen and Steve Climpson have been working to form a new internet discussion list for professional image creators and suppliers.

The Pro Imaging list is now open and if you are interested please go to:

www.pro-imaging.org

Why another list?
1. We felt that it was time for a professional only list, open to those earning at least 80% of their income from the industry whether they work as a photographer, illustrator, pre press, lab services, manufacturing, etc. In addition others can join if approved.

2. The range of topics is unlimited, as long as its relevant to the industry you can talk about business marketing to OS systems, film choice to ethics.
The list is not moderated.

3. We have taken a stance on Royalty Free images and ask that any member does not, from now on, supply RF images as we believe they damage the industries long term interest.

Details, such as the aims and policies of Pro Imaging will be found on the website. Please read the guidelines on the register page and if you agree to them then sign up. You will need to fill in a short form to include a biography of yourself. This will be in the archives for people to see and therefore we all know who is taking part in the list.

After signing up you'll get an email welcoming you to the list. All the info about posting, unsubscribing, archive access etc will be on that so please retain it for the future.
I hope to see you on the list very soon.

Regards

Steve Climpson

Mark your calendar - MARS!! - de Horia D la: 01/08/2005 16:45:24
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "4")
The Red Planet is about to be spectacular!

This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that
will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in
recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is
in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on
Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be
certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth
in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as
60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and
will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in
the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9
and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest
75-power magnification


Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.

Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.

By the end of August when the two planets are
closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its
highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty
convenient to see something that no human being has
seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at
the beginning of August to see Mars grow
progressively brighter and brighter throughout the
month.

This is so true! They always ask at the doctor's office why you are
there and you say in front of others what's wrong and sometimes it's
embarrassing.
There's nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists you
tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it.
An 86-year-old man walked into a crowded Doctor's Waiting Room. As he approached the desk, the Receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?"
"There's something wrong with my dick," he replied. The Receptionist
became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded Doctor's Room and say things like that."
"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said.
The Receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and then discussed the problem further with the Doctor in private."
The man replied, "You shouldn't ask people things in a room full of
others, if the answer could embarrass anyone."
The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered.
The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?"
"There's something wrong with my ear," he stated.
The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. "And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?"
"I can't piss out of it," the man replied.

The Waiting Room erupted in laughter

Iata un exemplu - de PROUDFRECKLED la: 03/09/2005 01:13:10
(la: Stiinta intre pierzanie si absolvire)
ce ilustreaza decalajul de care amintea autorul conferintei:

India is also the heartland of sex-selective abortion. Amniocentesis was introduced in 1974 "to ascertain birth defects in a sample population," but "was quickly appropriated by medical entrepreneurs. A spate of sex-selective abortions followed."
Dahlburg notes that "In Jaipur, capital of the western state of Rajasthan, prenatal sex determination tests result in an estimated 3,500 abortions of female fetuses annually," according to a medical-college study. (Dahlburg, "Where killing baby girls 'is no big sin'.") Most strikingly, according to UNICEF, "A report from Bombay in 1984 on abortions after prenatal sex determination stated that 7,999 out of 8,000 of the aborted fetuses were females. Sex determination has become a lucrative business." (Zeng Yi et al., "Causes and Implications of the Recent Increase in the Reported Sex Ratio at Birth in China," Population and Development Review, 19: 2 June 1993, p. 297.) In 1999, Jonathan Manthorpe reported a study by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, claiming that "the imbalance between the sexes is now so distorted that there are 111 million men in China -- more than three times the population of Canada -- who will not be able to find a wife."


Pentru acest adevarat dezastru n-a fost nevoie decit de punerea la dispozitia publicului a testului respectiv.Intentia a fost cit se poate de pasnica.Scapata de sub control iata unde a dus.
Om se intreaba:"Oare intelegem TOTI de la "vladica la opinca" pe deplin implicatiile si mecanismele? Oare ne putem maturiza/educa psihologic in ritmul AMETITOR al descoperirilor?Suntem pregatiti sa acceptam provocarile stiintei si viitorului ?"
Din exemplul dat,eu cred ca raspunsul este:NU inca.Si nu s-a vorbit de manipulare genetica,euthanasie,conceperea in vitro etc.

(i) Zomig-rapimelt = How does it work?
This medicine contains the active ingredient zolmitriptan, which belongs to a group of medicines known as serotonin (or 5HT) agonists. It works by stimulating serotonin receptors in the brain.

Serotonin is a natural substance in the brain that, among other things, causes blood vessels in the brain to narrow. Zolmitriptan mimics this action of serotonin by directly stimulating the serotonin receptors in the brain. This causes the blood vessels to narrow.

Although the cause of migraine attacks is not fully understood, it is thought that the widening of blood vessels in the brain causes the pain associated with migraine attacks. As zolmitriptan narrows these blood vessels, it relieves the pain of migraines. The dose should be taken as early as possible after the onset of migraine headache.

(ii)Ratio-tecnal= aspirina, cafeina + Butalbital, 5-allyl-5-isobutylbarbituric acid, is a barbiturate with an intermediate duration of action.

(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "6")
Doctor's Office

They always ask at the doctor's office why you are there, and you say in front of others what's wrong, and sometimes it's embarrassing.
There's nothing worse than a doctor's receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients.
I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it.
An 86-year-old man walked into my crowded doctor's waiting room. As he approached the desk, the receptionist said, " Yes sir, what are you seeing the doctor for today?"
"There's something wrong with my dick," he replied.
The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded doctor's room and say things like that."
"Why not? You asked me what was wrong, and I told you," he said.
The receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear, or something and then discussed the problem further with the doctor in private."
The man replied, "You shouldn't ask people things in a room full of people, if the answer could embarrass anyone."
The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered.
The receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?"
There's something wrong with my ear," he stated.
The receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. "And what is wrong with your ear, sir?"
"I can't piss out of it," the man replied. The waiting room erupted in laughter.

Words Women Use...

FINE
This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
FIVE MINUTES
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.
NOTHING
This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. 'Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with 'Fine'
GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"
GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
LOUD SIGH
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"
SOFT SIGH
Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.
THAT'S OKAY
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow.
GO AHEAD
At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
PLEASE DO
This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done.You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay"
THANKS
A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome.
THANKS A LOT
This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing"

ultimele, parol! - de om la: 12/12/2005 20:07:49
(la: Pentru orice problema exista o solutie)
The Puzzles
The man in the Elevator
A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it?
This is probably the best known and most celebrated of all lateral thinking puzzles. It is a true classic. Although there are many possible solutions which fit the initial conditions, only the canonical answer is truly satisfying.


The Man who Hanged Himself
Not far from Madrid, there is a large wooden barn. The barn is completely empty except for a dead man hanging from the middle of the central rafter. The rope around his neck is ten feet long and his feet are three feet off the ground. The nearest wall is 20 feet away from the man. It is not possible to climb up the walls or along the rafters. The man hanged himself. How did he do it?

Death in a Field
A man is lying dead in a field. Next to him there is an unopened package. There is no other creature in the field. How did he die?

Anthony and Cleopatra
Anthony and Cleopatra are lying dead on the floor of a villa in Egypt. Nearby is a broken bowl. There is no mark on either of their bodies and they were not poisoned. How did they die?


The Coal, Carrot and Scarf
Five pieces of coal, a carrot and a scarf are lying on the lawn. Nobody put them on the lawn but there is a perfectly logical reason why they should be there. What is it?


Trouble with Sons
A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year. But they were not twins, and they were not adopted. How could this be so?

Push that Car
A man pushed his car. He stopped when he reached a hotel at which point he knew he was bankrupt. Why?

The Arm of the Postal Service
One day a man received a parcel in the post. Carefully packed inside was a human arm. He examined it, repacked it and then sent it on to another man. The second man also carefully examined the arm before taking it to the woods and burying it. Why did they do this?
This one probably has more variations than any other. A great one to puzzle out. It requires plenty of good questions.


Heaven
A man died and went to Heaven. There were thousands of other people there. They were all naked and all looked as they did at the age of 21. He looked around to see if there was anyone he recognised. He saw a couple and he knew immediately that they were Adam and Eve. How did he know?


Friday
A man rode into town on Friday. He stayed for three nights and then left on Friday. How come?
A silly one - but it is surprisingly popular.


Manhole Covers
Why is it better to have round manhole covers than square ones?
This is logical rather than lateral, but it is a good puzzle which can be solved by lateral thinking techniques. It is supposedly used by a very well-known software company as an interview question for prospective employees.



The Deadly Party
A man went to a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early. Everyone else at the party who drank the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die?

The Deadly Dish
Two men went into a restaurant. They both ordered the same dish from the menu. After they tasted it, one of the men went outside the restaurant and shot himself. Why?


The Realization
A man was walking downstairs in a building when he suddenly realized that his wife had just died. How?


The Blind Beggar
A blind beggar had a brother who died. What relation was the blind beggar to the brother who died? (Brother is not the answer).

The Broken Match
A man is found dead in a field. He is clutching a broken match. What happened?


The Music Stopped
The music stopped. She died. Explain.

Swimmer in the Forest
Deep in the forest was found the body of a man who was wearing only swimming trunks, snorkel and facemask. The nearest lake was 8 miles away and the sea was 100 miles away. How had he died?
This is supposedly based on a true incident. Does this make it an urban legend? Many urban legends can be restated as lateral thinking puzzles. This is a very good one of this type.


The Elder Twin
One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How come?

(la: Oamenii devin homosexuali/lesbiene, sau se nasc asa ?)
Citez dintr-un rezumat al unui articol stiintific scris de:

Henry E. Adams, PhD; Lester W.Wright, PhD si Bethany A.Lohr,de la Universitatea din Georgia. Atlanta. Articolul a aparut in Journal of Abnormal Psychology , vol. 105, no 103, paginile 440-445 si a fost republicat in Journal of Psychology si alte reviste si se intituleaza "Is Homophobia Associated with Homosexual Arousal?", adica: "Oare homofobia este asociata cu excitarea homosexuala?". Rezumatul in engleza poate fi gasit si pe net.

"Cercetatorii Universitatii din Georgia au condus un experiment implicand 35 barbati homofobici si 29 barbati nehomofobici evaluati dupa indexul de homofobie.

Toti participantii selectati pentru studiu s-au autocaracterizat ca fiind exclusiv heterosexuali atat in privinta excitatiei cat si a experientei sexuale.

Fiecare din participanti a fost expus la stimuli erotici expliciti constand din vizionarea unor filme heterosexuale, homosexuale si lesbiene (in ordine diferita). Gradul lor de excitare sexuala a fost masurat prin intermediul unei metode (penile plethysmography) care masoara cu precizie tumescentza masculina.

Barbatii din ambele grupe au avut acelasi grad de excitare la vizionarea casetei video aratand comportamentul heterosexual ca si la vederea celor cu lesbiene. Singura diferenta semnificativa in gradul de excitare a aparut la vizionarea scenelor homosexuale (cu barbati).

Grupul heterosexualilor homofobi au prezentat o crestere semnificativa a circumferintei penisului in timp ce grupul de control (nehomofobic) nu a inregistrat acest efect.

Analiza in detaliu a rezultatelor a aratat ca in timp ce 66% din grupul nehomobic nu a aratat tumescenta semnificativa in timpul experimentului, numai 20% din grupul homofobic au fost in aceeasi situatie. In mod similar, cand numai 24% din grupul nehomofobic au aratat tumescenta clara in timpul vizionarii casetei video homosexuale, din grupul homofobic cifra a fost de 54%!

Cand li s-a cerut sa-si dea o autoevaluare proprie subiectiva a gradului de excitare, rezultatele au fost in acord cu cifrele gasite cu o singura exceptie: barbatii homofobi si-au subestimat in mod sistematic gradul de excitare la caseta video homosexuala.

Intrebarea este daca semnificatia acestor rezultate este conforma teoriei psihanalitice care spune ca homofobia la barbati este o reactie la dorintele homosexuale reprimate, sau se datoreaza anxietatii?

Aceste ipoteze in competitie sunt cercetate in continuare"

Rezultatele acestui studiu au fost prezentate la liceele din Anglia. Revista "Psychology today" a comentat ca dupa cateva luni s-a constata ceva neasteptat: marii batausi ai liceelor si-au incetat obisnuitele lor batai si persecutari ale elevilor perceputi ca homosexuali. Comentariul lor a fost ca ar trebui sa se discute cat mai larg despre acest studiu!

Independent de acest articol, un documentar despre crimele facute in Texas contra homosexualilor a prezentat cu doi criminali condamnati la inchisoare pe viata pentru ca au ucis doi tineri prin injunghiere bestiala. Unul din ei era foarte satisfacut si striga la reportera: "Read the Bible!". Celalat era fiu de pastor neoprotestant, cu mai multa constiinta si a marturisit: cand omoram acel om ma simteam de parca as fi omorat partea "rea" din mine. Atunci nu aveam curajul sa ma privesc in fatza; acum ma cunosc bine, dar e prea tarziu"

Problema homofobiei exista in masura diferita la toti cei care am crescut sau crestem in civilizatia crestina (sau islamica, sau evreiasca), datorita traditiei in care am crescut. Cand inveti un copil ca e pacat sa furi, i-ai dat un sprijin moral. Dar cand inveti un copil ca e pacat sa fie cine este, pentru ca daca este el insusi il mananca iadul, atunci i-ai dat o lovitura puternica in orice va putea fi pe viitor sprijinul lui moral.

E foarte greu sa ne dezvatam de homofobie, pentru ca "o sugem odata cu laptele mamei" (expresia unui baiat mai tanar).

As adauga ceva: cand homofobia e moderata poate fi un semn de lipsa de cultura sau saracie cu duhul. Dar cand e excesiva, este intodeauna mai mult decat atat. Un barbat cu adevarat heterosexual, sigur pe sine si fara complexe, nu se sinchiseste daca cineva face bancuri pe seama lui ca ar fi femeie sau ii face avansuri, ci va spune clar: stii, eu nu sunt ce crezi. Insa un barbat complexat recurge la orice insulte sau invective ca sa-si salveze in ochii sai barbatia sau aparentza de barbatie.

Cand eram student, intr-o iarna eram intr-o masina aglomerata cu un coleg care purta parul mare si un palton imblanit gros. O femeie din spate l-a vazut a strigat la el:"doamna, ce te impingi asa ca ma nenorocesti!", la care el si-a intors capul spre ea si a spus cu o voce tunatoare de bas: "In primul rand ca nu sunt doamna, sunt domnisoara!!!!" Toata lumea a ras si atmosfera s-a destins.

Daca era vreun obsedat ca unii care ne insulta aici pe net, sigur ca ar fi avut o reactie de isterie:"cum sa-mi cofunzi mie sexul? nu se vede ca sunt barbat cu b mare" (stil Paunescu.)

Dar el era sigur si confortabil cu sexul sau si nici o injuratura nu l-ar fi scos din pepeni.

Ciumpalacu` alb - de Dinu Lazar la: 29/03/2006 12:08:51
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Omul zice ca nu isi bate joc... cafegii stiu ceva fizica, stie cineva
cum sta treaba in realitate? Mi se pare absolut stupid sa fie asa.

Dino, this is not a joke, this is very serious. How do you think auto WB works?
The RAW file is never modified. When you shoot, every RAW file simply records what
is there - complete with colour casts. WB is applied by a process which reduces
exposure, and alters the gain or curve conversions of the raw file in the camera.

If you understand raw files, you will know that the highlight end of the scale
uses a massive amount of the available bit depth - the high bits as well, not
the low value bottom end 'low bits'.

When the camera does auto WB, it is discarding up to two stops of the blue channel's
overall dynamic range. This has the effect of extending the histogram of the blue channel
so that increase noise appears in the low bit zones.

If you use an 80B filter, and convert to tungsten by filtering and not using auto WB,
you gain a great deal in terms of quality, highlight detail and reduction of shadow to
midtone coloured noise.

This is not a joke, and it's not misinformation. Ask anyone who understands the process
by which a 12-bit or 14-bit raw image gets converted to JPEG in the camera, or out of it.
