Subiect - de artan la: 02/04/2004 17:24:53
(la: Vecinii de bloc - sa le ascultam manelele sau...?)
Imi place Loreena McKennitt si mie. Am sesizat un "online" care are aceasta pasiune. Si Oliver Shanti si multi altii.
Karpaten-ul nu ma lasa sa dorm. Vj cred ca sunt deja stresati de sunetul care se aude in linistea noptii cand executi tastatura. Noroc ca-l mai estompeaza D.C.D.
As vrea ca toti care citesc aceste randuri sa lase o idee in acest forum deoarece subiectul propus este atat de actual incat doar unindu-ne puterile putem sa stim ce avem de facut atunci cand avem ghinionul sa ne mutam in casa mult visata si sa constatam ca linistea noastra atat de necesara dupa un drum de 2 ore pana la munca si alte 8 ore petrecute cu niste idioti de sefi ne este tulburata de vecini "bine intentionati".
Si maine este o zi...

Personal finance - de Dantimis la: 07/04/2004 14:34:27
(la: Cat va ramane din salariu?)
E greu sa recomanzi ceva in domeniul asta. Depinde foarte mult de zona geografica in care te afli si de situatia personala.
Cel mai bun sfat e sa mergi la biblioteca, la sectia de personal finance si vei avea rafturi intregi de carti la alegere. Incepe cu ceva general care sa-ti explice diferitele moduri de investitii cu avantaje si dezavantaje (riscuri). Neaparat citeste ceva care sa explice cat e de importanta disciplina financiara, ca de exemplu: "cel care face $200/luna si pune deoparte $50/luna la sfarsitul anului va fi cu $600 mai bogat decat cel care face $2000/luna dar ii cheltuie pe toti"

Cateodata e greu si plicticos sa citesti carti cu subiect financiar, dar unii autori sunt foarte buni, chiar comici. Citind numai cateva pagini la inceput iti vei da seama daca iti place sau nu. Avantajul fata de romanele obisnuite: poti citi numai capitolele care te intereseaza si sari pe celelalte, fara a pierde nimic.

Poate unii vor rade, dar decat nimic poti sa incepi si cu "Personal finance for dummies" de Eric Tyson (daca esti in America...)

Dupa ce vei citi o carte-doua cu subiect general vei cauta poate carti care trateaza subiectul preferat mai in detaliu. Poate vrei sa afli mai multe despre diferite forme de investment (stocks, mutual funds) sau vrei sa inveti cum sa-ti investesti banii pt batranete, sau cum sa speculezi la bursa de actiuni folosind options, etc.

Daca esti in America pot sa-ti recomand un site:

http://www.investopedia.com

daca nu, cauta pe internet si sigur vei gasi ceva din zona in care locuiesti care sa te instruiasca in acest domeniu. Multe banci au tutoriale despre diferite forme de investitii in website-urile lor.

Eu folosesc o banca online:

https://www.optionsxpress.com

care are si tutorial online, destul de bine facut. Daca locuiesti in USA poti sa-ti deschizi un cont cu $0 si iti mai si trimit o carte la alegere free (eu recomand "The Options Advisor" by Bernie Schaeffer).

Multa lume considera astfel de lectura drept o indeletnicire plicticoasa, fara prea multa folosinta practica. Eu pot sa spun din propie experienta ca citirea (sau numai rasfoirea cateodata) acestor carti mi-a fost mai de folos decat facultatea de mecanica, desi lucrez ca si inginer proiectant.

Cura de slabire dupa retete biblice - de SB_one la: 21/04/2004 12:56:40

Cura de slabire dupa retete biblice


dr. Jordan Rubin




Miercuri, 21 Aprilie 2004


Retetele de slabit de mare succes ar putea fi detronate in curind de o dieta revolutionara lansata de un nutritionist american, care se bazeaza pe respectarea cu strictete a regimului alimentar recomandat in Vechiul Testament. Saptamina trecuta, cartea “Maker’s Diet” (“Dieta Creatorului”), lansata de nutritionistul dr. Jordan Rubin , evreu adept al cultului mesianic, a ajuns in topul primelor zece publicatii de profil in Statele Unite.
Pe linga imbratisarea unui regim alimentar “natural”, adeptii acestei diete trebuie sa renunte la exercitiile de aerobic, la pasta de dinti cu fluor, la antiperspirante si chiar la dusul zilnic, astfel incit sa adopte in totalitate stilul de viata al vechilor israeliti. Orele de fitness sint inlocuite cu ore de mers pe jos, bai de soare si post frecvent. Dieta consta intr-un regim de 40 de zile in care se pot consuma alimente “aprobate de Dumnezeu”, exclusiv naturale si neprocesate, urmind regulile foarte stricte scrise in Levitic si Deuteronom. Carnea “necurata” de porc si scoicile sint excluse, insa se recomanda carnea slaba si somonul, insotite de multe salate. Carbohidratii sint chiar recomandati, insa numai din surse naturale: fructe, miere si lapte. Dieta mai include o doza zilnica de pamint (argila) care contine organisme “benefice tractului digestiv”, produs de o firma din Florida.
In virsta de 28 de ani, nutritionistul american spune ca a ajuns la aceasta dieta dupa nenumarate incercari zadarnice de a gasi un tratament pentru boala Crohn, o afectiune cronica a tubului digestiv. Dupa cum a declarat dr. Jordan Rubin pentru “New York Post”, dieta urmata cu strictete duce la o pierdere in greutate de 5-7 kilograme in primele 40 de zile. (L.C.)

Formularul cu pricina - de Dantimis la: 23/04/2004 12:50:57
(la: CHESTIONAR LEGAT DE EMIGRATIA SPECIALISTILOR IN EU,USA &....!!!!)
Probabil ca greseala webmasterului este ca nu s-a exprimat prea clar in legatura cu optiunile de completare si submitere a formularului.

Cu PDF-ul ai doua optiuni:

  • prima sa il completexi si sa-l submiti online, fara a-l downloada, asa cum am proceda eu intial
  • a doua e sa downloadezi PDF-ul, sa-l completezi si sa apesi pe butonul "Submit". Am incercat si in felul asta si a mers (am trimis formularul gol, sic). Cred ca depinde de conectia pe care o ai la internet si poate de ceva setari la browser, sau cine stie, nu sunt super expert in domeniul asta.

    O alta optiune e sa downloadezi file-ul zipped, care e in Rich Text Format, sa-l completezi si sa-l trimiti prin email.

    Intradevar, cam dureaza ceva timp sa completezi formularul, mai ales daca te intinzi la comentarii.

    Un alt aspect ar fi faptul ca formularul e in engleza, cand cred ca ar fi fost mult mai nimerit sa fie in romaneste. Nu toti romanii sunt plecati in USA, Canada sau Anglia. Dimpotriva, cred ca cei mai multi ar fi poate in Germania, Franta sau alte tari europene, nevorbitoare de engleza. Iar daca studenta respectiva e italianca si a fost in Romania, nu a prins nici un pic de romana ca sa poata face formularul in romaneste?

    Oricum, nu prea cred ca dansa va putea sa traga ceva concluzii care sa reprezinte cat de cat realitatea cu sondajul asta.

    Lectura de luni; de pe o lista de discutii adevarate - de Dinu Lazar la: 25/04/2004 23:25:08
    (la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
    Gordon Parks is and always has been one of my personal heroes.
    Born in FT Scott, KS in 1915, he spent his early years in Kansas City.
    The camera was his "weapon of choice" (his phrase) to battle bigotry, racism and prejudice, upholding the very best ideals of photojournalism.
    He did groundbreaking photo essays for Life magazine. But his creative energies and considerable intellect also pushed him to be a director of films, including "Shaft;" he choreographed a ballet, is a poet, musician, and author of a number of books.
    In today's Kansas City Star there is an excellent page one article by Lisa Gutierrez with terrific photos by Dolores Johnson.> If you don't have access to a copy, here is the online link:

    I respectfully submit that if you can afford to spend ten minutes out of what I am sure is a busy day, it would be worthwhile reading.

    Committee to Protect Journalists - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/05/2004 23:51:38

    NEWS
    Committee to Protect Journalists

    EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: MONDAY, MAY 3, AT 00:01 GMT (For Monday's Newspapers)

    CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

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

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


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


    WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

    IRAQ

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

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

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

    CUBA

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

    ZIMBABWE

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

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

    TURKMENISTAN

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

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


    BANGLADESH

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

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

    CHINA

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

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

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

    ERITREA

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

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


    HAITI

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

    THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

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

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

    RUSSIA

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

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

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

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

    Elevi romani, premiati de NASA


    Flaviu Birsan si Andrei Costea, doi dintre constantenii care i-au uimit pe americani




    Maria Petrean
    Leila Florescu
    Sambata, 08 Mai 2004


    Flaviu Birsan si Andrei Costea, de la Liceul “Ovidius” din Constanta, si Carmen Sigovan, de la Colegiul National “Mircea cel Batrin”, sint cistigatorii marelui premiu pentru crearea unei statii orbitale independente, oferit de NASA. In concursul initiat de Agentia Spatiala Americana s-au inscris 122 de proiecte, realizate de 444 de elevi si studenti din tari cu experienta in activitatea spatiala, printre care SUA, Japonia, Germania si Rusia.
    La inceputul anului, Agentia Spatiala Americana (NASA) lansa un concurs pentru tinerii cu virste intre 11 si 18 ani, din toata lumea, al carui subiect era proiectul unei statii orbitale. Absolut din intimplare, trei elevi din Constanta, olimpici la fizica si matematica, inscrisi la Centrul de Excelenta, navigau pe Internet in cautarea unor concursuri care sa le testeze cunostintele si l-au descoperit pe cel lansat de NASA. Cei interesati aveau la dispozitie trei luni sa elaboreze proiectul unei statii orbitale. Flaviu Birsan si Andrei Costea, ambii de la Liceul “Ovidius” din Constanta, si Carmen Sigovan, de la Colegiul National “Mircea cel Batrin”, au inceput atunci activitatea de cercetare pentru participarea la competitie. Timp de doua luni au consultat peste 60 de surse de informare, de la literatura de specialitate la paginile web, apoi a urmat o luna de concepere a proiectului, cu munca asidua, cite 12 ore zilnic. Coordonati de profesorul Ion Bararu, directorul Centrului de Excelenta Constanta, cei trei tineri - toti elevi in clasa a XI-a - au reusit sa imagineze o statie orbitala care sa se sustina independent de Pamint. Ei au numit proiectul LEDA, dupa nimfa din mitologie care lua forma unei lebede, dar si ca o prescurtare a numelui statiei, Life sustaining Environment Designed for Artificial habitats si plecind de la premisa ca statia imaginata de ei are forma unei lebede. Copiii spun ca partile cele mai complicate au fost imaginarea modelului matematic dupa care sa functioneze statia si redactarea proiectului in limba engleza, in termeni de specialitate.
    Dupa ce au trimis proiectul LEDA, constantenii au asteptat raspunsul, dar, dupa cum sustin chiar ei, nu se asteptau la marele premiu deoarece in concurs s-au inscris 122 de proiecte, realizate de 444 de elevi si studenti din tari cu experienta in activitatea spatiala: SUA, Canada, Japonia, Germania, Franta si Rusia. Dintre toate proiectele inscrise in concurs, LEDA a fost apreciat drept cel mai bun si recompensat cu marele premiu. Flaviu, Andrei si Carmen vor fi invitati la sediul NASA, unde vor petrece zece zile la Centrul de Cercetari AMES. Acolo isi vor prezenta si proiectul, in cadrul unor sesiuni stiintifice. Pentru a ajunge in Statele Unite le trebuie insa bani de drum, NASA asigurindu-le doar sumele necesare cheltuielilor de cazare, masa si transport intern.

    automobile si soferi - de Pacala la: 11/05/2004 16:13:39
    (la: Automobile si soferi)
    In Statele Uimite ale Americii poti sa-ti iei carnetul si daca nu te duce capul prea tare sau nu esti prea indemanatic. Probabil trei sferturi din populatia 'rutiera' din State n-ar rezista nici pentru o luna la stilul de condus din Romania. Dupa cateva saptamani de condus acasa, comentariul jumatatii mele a fost ca ar putea face o avere daca face un joc pe Playstation sau XBox cu masini pe trasee din Romania, in care sa includa soferi sinucigasi care depasesc la o palma de masina din sens invers, vaci sau alte patrupede care sa apara pe neasteptate de pe marginea drumului sau in mijlocul drumului imediat dupa o curba, biciclisti care circula noaptea fara ochi de pisica si in directia ta de mers, masini fara faruri functionale, sosele numai cu o banda pe sens, gauri mari de-ti pica masina intreaga in ele-fara semnalizare bineinteles, etc. No comments!
    In State ai nevoie de masina ca de aer, pentru ca distantele sunt enorme. Incerc sa merg cat mai mult pe jos, dar nu exista trotuare oameni buni. Mergi pe marginea drumului si lumea se uita la tine ca si cum esti de pe alta planeta. Majoritatea oamenilor au uitat si sa mearga... la o analiza mai atenta a felului de mers, se poate observa cu ochiul liber cum cei mai multi si-au pierdut indemanarea de umbla pe membrele posterioare. Exceptie face NYC unde e sinucidere curata sa mergi cu masina, pentru ca este atata inghesuiala ca-ti pierzi intreaga zi numai in masina. The average American isi petrece o buna parte a timpului in masina. Cei mai multi de la doua-trei ore pe zi...
    Si daca distanta este mica, majoritatea celor nascuti aici sau impamanteniti aici de multa vreme, vor folosi masina, fie si numai ca sa se duca pana la coltul strazii, la alimentara sa cumpere o paine sau ziarul!
    Pana sa vin aici consideram ca a conduce pana la litoralul Marii Negre odata pe an era deja ceva de-a dreptul insuportabil. Acum cinspe-douazeci de ore de condus pe autostrada sunt un mizilic. De obicei prefer noaptea cand e mai putina aglomeratie si soferii de tir stiu sa conduca la drum lung. In majoritatea timpului prefer condusul peste limita vitezei legale (prefer sa-mi petrec majoritatea timpului facand alte lucruri mai utile decat condusul!) si de aceea din cand in cand mai iau cate o amenda. Asta nu neaparat inseamna ca sunt un sofer prost sau imprudent. Stiu sa semnalizez ce vreau sa fac, sa ma opresc cand trebuie, ce e aceea prioritatea de dreapta sau traficul din directie opusa, sa bag de seama cand se schimba lumina semaforului, sa vad semnalizatoarele, samd. Ca sa nu mai vorbim de faptul ca nu mananc in masina un intreg 'meal' in timp ce conduc, nu vorbesc la telefonul mobil pe care-l tin cu o mana in timp ce gesticulez cu cealalta (!), nu-mi pun fard pe fata, nu incerc sa-mi pun haine pe mine in timp ce conduc, nu tin catelul in brate sau pe umar in tot acest timp sau nu fac sex in timp ce conduc! Parol, oameni buni, istorii adevarate...
    Cand iei amenda exista doua alternative: fie o accepti si o platesti (poti s-o faci si online), fie te duci in court si o contesti si judecatorul spune daca ai dreptate si cat trebuie sa platesti si cate puncte inseamna in carnet. Punctele pentru viteza expira dupa un anumit timp daca intre timp n-ai mai fost prins cu alte abateri. Acest timp variaza de la stat la stat, ca si multe altele, nu exista 'gospodarii' asemenatoare... tabuuri: bautura, pietonii, injuratul sau nepolitetea fata de politaiul care te-a oprit. in rest, se ocupa asigurarea de tine.
    Alte obiceiuri rele invatate in zece ani de condus acasa sunt inca prezente, desi uneori incerc sa ma abtin. Acestea includ farurile, injuraturile (in neaosa limba mioritica), folosirea limbajului mainilor, etc.
    Cam asta-i cu condusul in State... altfel, s-auzim numa' de bine!
    Cetatenii UE, egali cu romanii - de SB_one la: 16/05/2004 03:05:11
    (la: Uniunea Europeana, vecina noastra)


    Sub umbrela UE, cetatenii se vor simti in Romania ca acasa




    A.D.
    Duminica, 16 Mai 2004


    Cetatenii statelor UE vor avea dreptul sa se deplaseze si sa-si stabileasca resedinta oriunde pe teritoriul Romaniei, beneficiind de aceleasi drepturi de protectie sociala ca si cetatenii romani, a decis guvernul printr-un proiect de lege. Actul normativ reglementeaza intrarea si sederea pe teritoriul Romaniei a cetatenilor unui stat membru al Uniunii Europene, precum si a membrilor de familie ai acestora, care isi stabilesc resedinta temporara sau permanenta pe teritoriul Romaniei.
    Astfel, cetatenii UE beneficiaza de protectia generala a persoanelor si a proprietatii, garantate prin Constitutie, si de toate drepturile si beneficiile acordate persoanelor angajate. La intrarea in Romania, cetatenii UE vor primi din partea Autoritatii pentru straini un document de identitate care va dovedi dreptul de sedere, intitulat “Permis de sedere pentru un cetatean al unui stat membru al UE sau apartinind Spatiului Economic European (SEE)”, valabil cinci ani, cu posibilitate de prelungire pentru inca cinci. Intrarea in tara a cetatenilor din statele membre Uniunii se va face in baza cartii de identitate sau a pasaportului.
    In cazul in care sederea pe teritoriul Romaniei depaseste trei luni, dar este mai mica de un an, permisul de sedere se elibereaza pe perioada angajarii in munca. Pentru o perioada de angajare mai mica de trei luni pasaportul e suficient pentru sederea in tara. Prevederi similare se aplica si cetatenilor UE sau SEE care desfasoara activitati independente sau furnizeaza servicii.
    Sanse egale pe piata muncii

    Autoritatea pentru straini emite permis de sedere pentru cetatenii statelor membre UE care urmeaza un curs de formare profesionala la o institutie de invatamint acreditata si recunoscuta, precum si sotului/sotiei si copiilor aflati in intretinerea acestuia daca dovedesc ca dispun de suficiente mijloace de intretinere si ca au o asigurare medicala pentru toate riscurile in Romania. In acest caz, dreptul de sedere se limiteaza la durata studiilor. In situatia in care cetatenii unui stat membru solicita dreptul de sedere pentru alte scopuri decit cele prezentate in lege, Autoritatea pentru straini le va acorda acest drept daca toate persoanele in cauza, inclusiv membrii de familie, poseda suficiente mijloace de intretinere, precum si o asigurare medicala pentru toate riscurile in Romania.
    Actul normativ mai prevede ca ocuparea locurilor de munca vacante de catre cetatenii UE se va realiza in aceleasi conditii prevazute si pentru cetatenii romani, fara sa li se aplice insa acele prevederi care restring numarul sau procentajul angajatilor.
    Copiii cetatenilor UE vor fi admisi in sistemul de educatie si formare profesionala in aceleasi conditii ca si cetatenii romani. In ceea ce priveste obligatiile care revin cetatenilor statelor membre si membrilor lor de familie, acestea se refera, in principal, la respectarea legislatiei romanesti si la conditia de a se supune controlului organelor de politie si al celorlalte autoritati publice competente, conform legii. Proiectul de lege, care va fi transmis parlamentului spre dezbatere si adoptare, va intra in vigoare la data aderarii Romaniei la Uniunea Europeana.

    Cauta intr-un Dex tiparit. - de Daniel Racovitan la: 19/05/2004 07:24:48
    (la: Gramatica si butélia)
    Cauta intr-un Dex tiparit. Ala online e incomplet. Uita-te eventual si intr-un dictionar de neologisme.

    Exemplu: "sit arheologic" este totuna cu "locatie arhelogica".
    "Sit de constructie" este echivalent cu "loc de constructie".

    Cuvantul romanesc "sit" are sensul de "loc", "locatie", ca si englezescul "site", iar prin extensie el poate fi (si este) aplicat si la "locatiile web".
    Asadar "sit web" este traducerea corecta in romaneste a lui "web site", s iare sensul de "locatie web", exact ca in englezeste.

    Acu' ca exista fundamentalisti care zic futbol si nu fotbal, asta e alta poveste.

    (la: Jazz)
    Pacat ca nu am aflat mai devreme, dar in cautarea mea de forumuri unde pot gasi fani ai acestui gen de muzica am dat de o discutie online care s-a desfasurat acum ceva saptamani cu Harry Tavitian. Am o admiratie deosebita pentru acel om.
    Daca vreti sa vizualizati discutia, e pe forumul de la www.tufaciviitorul.ro sectiunea Invitati de Onoare. Eu sper ca oamenii de acolo sa mai cheme astfel de personalitati si, eventual, sa dea si sfoara in tara pe subiect. :)

    o idee foarte buna, mi-ar face placere sa vad pozele.

    poti folosi ID-ul de yahoo, adica bellethecharmer@yahoo.com. din pacate o sa verific e-mailurile abia maine la pranz cand ajung acasa de la scirbici (dup-amiaza n-am cum sa intru online, sper sa reusesc in sfarsit s-ajung la antrenament ca pana acum in fiecare zi din saptamana asta a intervenit ceva si am avut programul prea incarcat pentru orice altceva).

    and by the way, multumesc pentru comentariile la celelalte subiecte, o sa le citesc mai pe-ndelete cat de curand ca sa pot raspunde.

    p.s. define "departe" ;)

    distractie placuta, vreme frumoasa si sa te simti bine ...sper sa primesti urarile inainte de plecare, se pare ca serverul meu e mai lenes, mesajele tale apar aproape imediat (pot sa-mi dau seama de asta cand vad ca esti online) da' ale mele apar dupa foarte mult timp

    chip in taci ;) (adica pe limba lui shakespeare "keep in touch")

    Pt. Daniel Racovitan - de Paianjenul la: 05/06/2004 21:38:30
    (la: America si puterea petrolului)
    "...deci cine crede varianta hijack e un bou."


    - Am petrecut ZECI si ZECI de ore online (o fac SI in prezent), ANALIZIND si COMPARIND versiuni oficiale ale lui 9-11, cu versiuni "alternative"... si insist - pina la proba contrarie - ca CEL PUTIN 85% din versiunile oficiale sint GOGORITE, pe care cineva le poate crede NUMAI daca respectivul

    a. este FOARTE SUPERFICIAL informat despre subiect (caz REMEDIABIL...)...
    b. este un individ de o naivitate CRASA...
    c. are un IQ serios CHESTIONABIL...

    NU am avut intentia sa OFENSEZ pe nimeni... am recurs la metafora "BOU" (cu care m-as eticheta, in eventualitatea ca m-as incadra la punctele b. si c...)... metafora inspirata fiind si de caracterul ABSURD si INSIDIOS al unora dintre versiunile "White House" privind 9-11...

    Sint convins ca exista sute de mii de persoane decente pe glob, care fac un EFORT ca sa accepte versiunea oficiala, pur si simplu pentruca NU POT sa conceapa ca guvernul american ar fi in stare sa mearga ATIT de departe incit sa-si sacrifice propriii cetateni pentru a crea un pretext pentru razboiul de care DEPINDEA cu atita disperare recuperarea economica a USA.

    Mai exista, desigur, si categoria celor care ar suporta/aproba versiunea oficiala 9-11 FARA sa se sinchiseasca DACA e adevarata sau nu, ideea fiind ca

    ..."daca prosperitatea economica a majoritatii cetatenilor Americii presupune sacrificarea citorva sute sau mii de vieti, e un pret care tot merita platit..."...

    ... Ii consider pe acesti suporteri COMPLICI morali ai CRIMINALILOR de la Casa Alba... si am pentru ei un declarat si deschis sentiment de DESCONSIDERATIE...

    (...Regret daca ofensez, dar in situatiile in care POLITETEA si SINCERITATEA se exclud reciproc, pentru mine IMPORTANTA ramine SINCERITATEA...)...

    Vazand lungimea povestirii, m - de alexbrie la: 14/06/2004 12:24:26
    (la: Zanele de papadie si ploile acide)
    Vazand lungimea povestirii, ma trecuse gandul sa critic recenta moda a textelor kilometrice pe Cafenea. Citisem undeva ca de cand cu textele online, se creeaza un nou val de scriitori de proze ultrascurte (maxim 2 ecrane), adaptate noului mediu electronic.

    Citindu-ti povestirea, am constatat insa ca ma inselasem. Ritmul alert si separarea accentuata in paragrafe o fac mai mult decat citibila. Si subiectul e genial. Bravo.

    Mici observatii: incepi cu un exces de descrieri, inutil; din fericire ritmul te prinde din urma rapid si continua natural, fara fortari. Poate ar fi nimerit sa mai elimini din descriptivele inutile de la inceput(repetitia lui "atata"-"atatia", de pilda)

    Pen`ca vine uichendu`, imi face placere sa va indrept catre o lectura foarte placuta, care arata ca fotografia editoriala merge inainte, nu e impotmolita si ragushita si moarta ca la noi:

    PDNOnline has been updated with the latest news.


    -A preview of some exhibits and evening slide shows planned for this year's Visa Pour l'Image in Perpignan reveals there will be a few "softer" photo essays among the usual images of war and destruction. (Be sure to click on the More Images feature).

    -The fight over the freelance contract from The New York Times may be over soon. We detail the paper's concessions and find out what the changes mean to the photographers who capitulated to the earlier agreement.

    -Ad news: Behind the scenes of two new campaigns for two different energy companies -- including the photographers the ad agencies considered and eventually rejected. (Be sure to click on the More Images feature).

    -People on the Move: People magazine's photo department loses its veteran leader; turnover continues at New York magazine; a new executive creative director takes over at J.
    Walter Thompson; a former art director becomes a rep at Marnie Rose Agency; news from Nicki Peters & Associates. ($ premium for subscribers only).

    -A new photo festival is being launched on the banks of the East River in New York; organizers Jimmy Moffat of Art + Commerce and educator Stephen Frailey are looking for emerging photographers to exhibit.

    -ASMP Foundation unveils its new grant program, and names new members to the board.

    you're funny! ai deviat nitel (mai mult) da' nu ma deranjeaza iar parte din ceea ce-ai scris deja citisem la alt subiect ;) (asa cum am mai spus in alt subiect, prefer sa citesc decat sa raspund/comentez)
    tu ai avut noroc fiindca ai talent si ai avut unde sa-l exploatezi, poate si daca ramaneai in tara aveai succes sau ajungeai un ratat, asta nu se stie niciodata si zau ca n-are importanta
    si daca ai fost mai nebun si mai "altfel" in tinerete nu-nseamna ca te "iubesc" mai mult sau mai putin acum, n-are nici o legatura ... orisice pe lumea asta se intampla cu un motiv si nu sunt eu cea care sa dau cu parul sau sa ridic in slavi. intotdeauna am acceptat faptele ca atare, fara sa le judec, si am incercat sa cunosc oamenii asa cum sunt inlauntru si nu cum vor sa arate altora (hai ca acum si eu am deviat lol)
    nu mai scriu ca-s obosita, intrasem online doar pentru cateva minute pentru altceva si vad ca m-am ratacit nitel si pe la cafenea
    continuam altadata
    b.
    p.s. tot n-am apucat sa ma uit pe sit-ul ala, promit ca maine seara e primul pe lista cand intru online
