scuzele pentru ortografie nu-s destule - de Dan Manoliu la: 23/06/2005 21:42:41
(la: "Ce bine e sa fi desptept si in acelasi timp si roman")
? 1827 - Petrache Poenaru, membru al Academiei Romane si unul dintre organizatorii învatamântului national inventeaza predecesorul stiloului modern: ?condei portaret, fara sfârsit, alimentându?se singur cu cerneala?

? 1880 - Dumitru Vasescu - construieste automobilul cu motor cu aburi.
In 1769, the very first self-propelled road vehicle was a military tractor invented by French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot (1725 - 1804). Cugnot used a steam engine to power his vehicle, built under his instructions at the Paris Arsenal by mechanic Brezin. It was used by the French Army to haul artillery at a whopping speed of 2 1/2 mph on only three wheels. The vehicle had to stop every ten to fifteen minutes to build up steam power. The steam engine and boiler were separate from the rest of the vehicle and placed in the front (see engraving above). The following year (1770), Cugnot built a steam-powered tricycle that carried four passengers.

? 1881 Alexandru Ciurcu - obtine un brevet din Franta prin care prevede posibilitatea zborului cu reactie.
The earliest rockets were almost certainly Chinese—there is little doubt that the Chinese first developed “black powder,” the basic propellant used in rockets. The combination of salt-peter, charcoal, and sulphur was probably used in fireworks by the Chinese centuries before Christ lived, but the only written records available are dated well into the Middle Ages.
Mongols besieging the city of Kaifeng in 1232 used arrows propelled by rockets (though primarily as a psychological weapon).
Knowledge about rocketry seems to have moved with the Mongol invasions—the Arabs are seen as having developed rockets by the thirteenth century and are reported as having used them against Saint Louis in the Seventh Crusade; the Italians were experimenting with rockets by the fifteenth century. A major refinement in the formula for black powder was made in the thirteenth century by Roger Bacon; this resulted in the creation of gunpowder.
All of those people dreamt of sending people to the moon on the tail of a rocket … Even Cyrano de Bergerac (the real one) did that in a poem …
Conrad Hass (1551-1579), German, an artillery engineer and chief of arsenal of the town of Sibiu. Hass wrote about the construction and the flight tests of multistage rockets, apparently the earliest writings in existence about the science of rocket engineering. How about that???

? 1886 Alexandru Ciurcu - construieste prima ambarcatiune cu reactie.
It’s more complicated, Ciurcu e numai un participant … one of two; also, educated in France.
Desire and Victoire Piot (A late eighteenth century French engineer / inventor and the origins of the Vapour Pulse Jet) probably fled France on the out break of the Franco–Prussian war in 1870 finally arriving in London where he tested his first successful pulse jet boats. Desire Piot could well have been inspired by a rocket powered boat developed by Just Buisson and Ciurcu. Not so successful demonstrations of their jet boat on the river Seine in Paris took place from August to December 1886 for the benefit of the French Ministry of Defense.

? 1887 C. I. Istrate - Friedelina si franceinele.

? 1895 D. Hurmuzescu - descopera electroscopul.
Jean Antoine Nollet (1700–1770) was a clergyman and physicist. In 1748, Nollet invented one of the first electrometers, the electroscope, which detected the presence of electric charge by using electrostatic attraction and repulsion. Nollet later wrote a theory on electrical attraction and repulsion based on the existence of a continuous flow of electrical matter between charged bodies and became the the first professor of experimental physics at the University of Paris.
Many others including George Washington did the same before our guy … 1755 or so …

? 1899 C.I. Istrate - o noua clasa de coloranti.
Maybe …

? 1900 Nicolae Teclu - becul cu reglarea curentului electric si gaz.
Are you serious??? “Becul de labborator cu reglarea curentului de AER si gaz”; big difference!!!
How about Bunsen? Premix (meaning air and gas) burners were the first purpose-designed burners, and they can be traced back more than 100 years to the Bunsen and similar laboratory burners. A premix burner system really consists of two key components, the burner head or nozzle, and the gas-air mixing device that feeds it. In some cases they're built as a single unit. The mixer uses the energy of a pressurized stream of air and/or gas to mix the two and present them to the burner nozzle, which provides an ignition and anchoring point for the flame and controls its shape.

? 1904 Emil Racovita - fondatorul biospeologiei.
Absolutely correct!!!

? 1905 Augustin Maior - telefonia multipla.
AT&T 1902 … also Bell Laboratoryes …

? 1906, 18.03 - Traian Vuia - avionul cu tren de aterizare pe roti cu pneuri; cu ?Vuia I? acesta reuseste prima decolare fara sa foloseasca nici un mijloc ajutator, numai cu aparate aflate la bord (în fapt, primul avion din istorie).
Are you serious?
The first powered heavier-than-air flight took place in 1890 (Clement Ader, steam engine on bat-winged monoplane, 60 yards). The Wrights' 1903 flight (300 yards) was the first photographed heavier-than-air flight. [Correction: not quite true; there exist photos of Lilienthal's non-powered heavier-than-air flights in the 1890s.] After the advent of relatively light combustion engines (such as Benz, Otto, Diesel), other pioneers pursued similar approaches, but no photographs were taken by Richard Pearse (New Zealand, March 1903) and Karl Jatho (August 1903). Finally, the Wrights needed headwinds or catapults to start their planes, so they were not fully self-powered. But Brazil's Santos-Dumont was (1906, first official airplane flight).
Important stuff: Richard Pearse March 31, 1902. Accounts by witnesses of the flight vary, from "50 to 400 yards in length", but it seems most likely that it was around 350 yards long, and ending prematurely when the flying machine landed in a large hedge - 4 metres off the ground ! The aircraft was the first to use proper ailerons, instead of the inferior wing warping system that the Wright's used. The flying machine also had a modern tricycle type landing gear, thus negating the need for ramps, slides, or skids. Any suitable road would do. The flying machine was aerodynamically crude, for sure, but did the job on the day, and in fact for months afterwards. By the end of July 1903, Pearse had achieved flights of around one kilometre in length, and perhaps even more amazingly, some of them included turns ! An absolutely fantastic achievement for the time. Pearce also built the engine, which was estimated at about 15 - 22hp, but hampered by a much cruder propeller than the Wright's machine.

? 1906 A.A. Beldiman - aparatul hidraulic cu dalta de percutie pentru sondaje adânci.
Tough to prove!!!

? 1908 Lazar Edeleanu ? primul procedeu de rafinare a produselor petroliere cu bioxid de sulf din lume, procedeu care ii poarta numele.

? 1908 Acad. Nicolaie Vasilescu-Karpen - ?pila Karpen", care functioneaza înca si produce curent electric, neîntrerupt, de aproape 100 de ani!
William Grove produced the first fuel cell in 1839 over 150 years ago. He based his experiment on the fact that sending an electric current through water splits the water into its component parts of hydrogen and oxygen. So, Grove tried reversing the reaction - combining hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity and water. This is the basis of a simple fuel cell. The term “fuel cell” was coined later in 1889 by Ludwig Mond and Charles Langer, who attempted to build the first practical device using air and industrial coal gas.

? 1913-1916 Ioan Cantacuzino - vaccinarea antiholerica (metoda Cantacuzino)
Pasteur was known as the father of stereochemistry, but his contributions to microbiology and medicine were greater. Pasteur discovered anaerobic bacteria and two silkworm diseases. It was he who discovered that if you take a microbe that causes a particular disease, for instance, smallpox, and make a weakened form of it, that weakened smallpox microbe can be used to fight off the stronger smallpox microbes. Doctors now inoculate people against all kinds of diseases and, for a time, had almost eradicated smallpox. Pasteur also invented the anthrax vaccine, the cholera vaccine, and the rabies vaccine. He died in 1895.

? 1916 D. Danielopolu - actiunea hipertensiva a digitalei.
The man credited with the introduction of digitalis into the practice of medicine was William Withering. Withering was born in Wellington, Shropshire, England in 1741. He followed in the medical footsteps of his father who was an apothecary-surgeon. Withering received his MD degree in 1766. As an individual, William Withering was an extremely giving person. He would personally see and treat two or three thousand poor patients a year limiting him to making about 1000 British pounds as compared to his contemporary doctors who made 5000 British pounds per year. Withering published about 19 articles during his lifetime. After fighting a long battle with tuberculosis, William Withering, the father of digitalis medicine, died on October 6 1799, at the age of 58.

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

Articol in engleza - de mya la: 07/11/2005 21:51:47
(la: Arde Parisul?)
A man who was beaten by an attacker while trying to extinguish a trash can fire during riots north of Paris has died of his injuries, becoming the first fatality since the urban unrest started 11 days ago, a police official said Monday. Youths overnight injured three dozen officers and burned more than 1,400 vehicles.

Raincy, one of the towns in suburban Paris hit by rioting, was preparing Monday to enact a nightime curfew, the mayor's office said.

A top aide to Mayor Eric Raoult said the curfew was expected to be enacted Monday night or Tuesday. Details were still be drawn up, he said. He refused to be identified by name, saying Raoult himself would release details later.

The official would not say how the curfew might work. But he said that another suburban Paris town had in the past instituted a curfew to stop teenagers under age 15 from being out on the streets after 10 p.m. at night.

The curfew empowered police to take the teenagers home or to a police station where their parents had to come to collect them, he said.

Meanwhile, apparent copycat attacks spread to other European cities for the first time, with five cars torched outside Brussels' main train station, police in the Belgian capital said.

Australia, Austria and Britain became the latest countries to advise their citizens to exercise care in France, joining the United States and Russia in warning tourists to stay away from violence-hit areas.

Alain Rahmouni, a national police spokesman, said the man who was beaten died at a hospital from injuries sustained in the attack, but he had no immediate details about the victim's age or his attacker.

The man was caught by surprise by an attacker after rushing out of his apartment building to put out the fire, Rahmouni said.

Clashes around France left 36 police injured, and vandals burned 1,408 vehicles overnight Sunday-Monday, setting a new high for overnight arson and violence since the rioting started Oct. 27, national police chief Michel Gaudin said.

The mayhem started as an outburst of anger in suburban Paris housing projects and has fanned out nationwide among disaffected youths, mostly of Muslim or African origin, to become France's worst civil unrest in over a decade.

Attacks overnight were reported in 274 towns and police made 395 arrests, Gaudin said.

"This spread, with a sort of shock wave spreading across the country, shows up in the number of towns affected," Gaudin said, noting that the violence appeared to be sliding away from its flash point in the Parisian suburbs and worsening elsewhere.

It was the first time police were injured by weapons fire amid signs that rioters were deliberately seeking out clashes with police, officials said.

Among the injured police, 10 were injured by youths firing fine-grain birdshot in a late night clash in the southern Paris suburb of Grigny, national police spokesman Patrick Hamon said. Two were hospitalized but their lives were not in danger. One was wounded in the neck, the other in the legs.

The unrest began in the low-income Paris suburb of
Clichy-sous-Bois, after the deaths of two teenagers of Mauritanian and Tunisian origin. The youths were accidentally electrocuted as they hid from police in a power substation. They apparently thought they were being chased.

There have been 4,700 cars burned in France since the rioting began, and 1,200 suspects have been detained at least temporarily, Gaudin said.

Cenzura la case mari - de Dinu Lazar la: 10/11/2005 07:01:19
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
I would like to point your attention to the censorship to which my work has been exposed at the Korean Triennial of Photography. I am sure that the organizers had no perverse intentions, however their poorly stated arguments can only lead one to believe that their censorship resulted from the fear to address the issues that could arise from exhibiting such work.

I would have thought that events such as a Triennial would lead to the advancement of knowledge, as in discussions and debates about where we are within this medium of photography, and where we are headed towards. Instead of turning into a self-referential, auto-complacent and celebratory event that tries to avoid any real discovery.

By excluding my work, the organizers sought to evade any controversy. You can read all the details about their thinking if you go to the editorial section and click at the top of the page. After reading the facts, you are welcome to express your opinions directly to the organizers. I believe that this is not about me being right or wrong, this is about making it known that censoring work (or ideas) by anyone, is not an acceptable solution in order to resolve differences. If the photographic community uses the power of communication that we have created amongst ourselves through the internet, and confront censorship in this manner, it will probably help that other events in the future reconsider the importance of being open to ideas rather than shutting them out.

I'm sittin' here in the boring room
It's just another rainy sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time, I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around, I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder
I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast, I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder
I wonder how, I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue, blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning, turning, turning, turning, turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon tree
I'm sittin' here, I miss the power
I'd like to go out, taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
[Lemon Tree lyrics on]

I feel so tired, put myself into bed
Well nothing ever happens, and I wonder
Isolation, is not good for me
Isolation, I don't want to sit on the lemon tree
I'm stepping around in the desert of joy
Maybe anyhow I get another toy
And everything will happen, and you wonder
I wonder how, I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue, blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning, turning, turning, turning, turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree
And I wonder, wonder
I wonder how, I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue, blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon tree

Vezi, tocmai acea doza de estetica cu care e inzestrat "pictorul Ady", imbinata cu franchete de care nu toti de-aici se pot lauda, refuza sa vada in vocea surprinzatoare a acestei femei, "THE WALL" ce acopera tot.

dragul meu pictor de pietre (o sa schimb apelativul, daca nu-ti place), nu stiu ce întelegi tu exact prin "estetica", dar cu siguranta o sa ma dumiresc io...

despre franchetea-ti mult laudata ce sa zic? lauda-ti-o.

însa despre acest "the wall" al tau am doua vorbe, mai consistente...

se facuse, cândva, la o confa de muzica, ca domnia ta, meloman înrait, pusese un link cu Emerson, Lake and ..."POWER"! mi-am dat seama atunci, dupa ce te-am corectat politicos, ca faci confuzii nepermise unui meloman, ca nu-i vorba de nicio "POWER", ci de numele bateristului Carl PALMER sau, uneori, Cozy POWELL. Cu POWER nu aveam nimic ...

linkul, daca nu-ti mai amintesti, e aici:

mirosind rapid ca-i vorba de-un oarecare snobism al tau, muzical, mi-e usor acum sa te iau drept nepriceput. nu cred, sincer sa fiu, ca ai vreo ureche muzicala, nu cred ca te pricepi în a deosebi o voce comuna, obisnuita, de una ce merita vreo atentie, asa cum nu deosebesti un simplu cuvânt englezesc de numele unui membru al grupului, care pe deasupra nici nu seamana, pretinzând însa ca-ti place la nebunie. un typo de tastatura e total exclus aici ....

despre Lautrec o sa-ti raspund alta data, mai pe larg si poate în alt context, am si-acolo câteva lucruri interesante sa-ti povestesc ....pictore!

Scottsman ca Scottsmanu', da' uite ca a facut cap de afis povestea chiar si la CNN World :) Macar isi mai aduc aminte ca exista Romania... chiar daca doar legat de povestea (ne)amoroasa a unor minori(tati).

Enjoy paine si circ! Se intreaba cineva cate fete rroma se marita la 12 ani, sunt batute crunt sau chiar omorate de parinti pt. ca fug de mirele care le-a fost "sortit" de familie cand inca de abia ziceau "mama" (asa cum a facut si Mrs. Cioaba - actual Birita), sunt obligate sa traiasca viata pe care o traiesc, chiar daca ele au vise mai inalte etc., etc.?... Nimanui nu ii pasa de toti ceilalti, ci doar de cateva VIPuri in jurul carora se invart cu camerele si microfoanele si carnetelele de notite. De parca toata viata tuturor s-ar agata de firul subtire impletit de stelele de carton romanesti. Si nu ma refer doar la regi si imparati, ci si la "cartoanele" de la TV, radio, presa in general. Cum ajunge cate unu sa isi puna fatza "pe sticla", e declarat vedeta si i se face statuie.

Dar de fapt care e "point-ul" meu in toata povestea asta, m-am pierdut? Scrie cineva o continuare la chestia asta?

Din nou pentru Dan Calin - de Ingrid la: 14/10/2003 15:39:55
(la: A existat holocaust in Romania?)
Despre trenul mortii, plimbat pe ruta Iasi-Calarasi(Ialomita), iata "amintiri" culese dintr-un site probabil neolegionar :
"Viorica Agarici – mit si adevar in problema "Trenului mortii"

Din capul locului declar ca nu am intentia de a nega sau minimaliza tragicele evenimente petrecute la Iasi in iunie/iulie 1941, care s-au derulat pana in gara Romanului. Despre asta s-a scris si se va mai scrie mult, incat modesta mea contributie s-ar pierde ca o picatura de apa intr-un ocean de venin. In schimb, voi aduce cateva elemente noi legate de cele intamplate la Roman. Cititorii au latitudinea sa le arunce in talgerul balantei ce li se va parea mai adecvat.

Asadar, la gara din Roman - Era in fatidica zi de 3 iulie 1941, cand s-a anuntat sosirea, in tranzit, a unui tren cu evrei deportati din Iasi. Pentru fetele de la Cantina Crucii Rosii, ca si pentru personalul punctului sanitar din gara condus de doctorita Veronica Falcoianu (foto alaturata), situatia parea similara cu cea a trenurilor de raniti cu stationare scurta, avand alta destinatie. In acest rastimp, li se acordau, in vagoane, ajutoarele umanitare si medicale necesare. Totusi, judecand bine, medicul de serviciu la punct in acea zi, in unire cu echipele de la cantina, au inteles ca situatia actuala va fi oarecum diferita. Din aceasta cauza au chemat-o in ajutor pe doamna Viorica Agarici, presedinta Filialei locale a Societatii nationale de Cruce Rosie. Dansa a venit fara intarziere, insotita de vicepresedinta, d-na Eliza Vargolici si de medicul primar al judetului, dr. Stefan Pasov. In urma lor a sosit si seful Comenduirii Pietei, cpt. I. Cocaneanu.

Din primul moment, duduia Viorica a inceput a-si organiza echipa cu care avea sa intre in actiune. Din aceasta faceau parte: Sofia Lazarescu (sefa cantinei), invatatoarele Zoe Iacobescu, Elena Taune si Maria Curelescu, tinerele Mura Hagiaturian, Rodica Lazarescu si doua maici detasate de la manastirea Agapia. Intre timp, cpt. Cocaneanu a luat informatii suplimentare de la biroul de miscare al garii, de unde s-a intors foarte posomorat. Cand au iesit pe peron, cantinierele cu tavi si cosuri cu de ale gurii, 4 soldati cu caldari cu ceai, doctorita Falcoianu insotita de of. san. V. Toma si infirmierele voluntare de Cruce Rosie, purtand medicamente pentru urgente si material de pansat, Cocaneanu s-a apropiat de d-na Agarici, soptindu-i ceva la ureche. Cei prezenti au spus ca niciodata n-au vazut-o decat blanda si amabila, dar acum si-a iesit din sarite!

Deodata intra trenul in gara - o garnitura lunga cu vagoane de marfa ("bou-vagon" cu portierele zavorate) din care razbateau voci disperate, cerand ajutor si apa! Pentru acest tren insa era un Ordin de la Comandatura militara germana din Iasi, ca nimeni sa nu se apropie.

Interventia Reginei-Mama (Relatare a doctorului Nicolae Horga, radiolog sef la Spitalul Precista)

La aflarea acestui ordin d-na Viorica Agarici i-a cerut cpt. Cocaneanu sa intervina pentru a fi deschise vagoanele si a se putea acorda asistenta medicala celor din interior. Cpt. Cocaneanu l-a contactat telefonic pe generalul de Divizie Stefan Ionescu, prefectul judetului Roman care tocmai atunci se pregatea sa intampine pe Regina Mama Elena, sosita intr-o vizita la spitalul din Roman.

Prefectul i-a expus Reginei situatia disperata din gara chiar in Spitalul Precista Mare (atunci Z.I. 448). cand se faceau prezentarile si i-a raportat tot ce se intampla in gara. Revoltata, regina l-a trimis pe aghiotantul ei pentru a verifica daca informatia este adevarata. Cand aghiotantul s-a intors si a confirmat cele spuse de prefect, Regina i-a cerut generalului Stefan Ionescu sa-i inlesneasca legatura cu generalul Ion Antonescu, care se afla in trenul Patria, aflat in exclusivitate la dispozitia sa. Regina cerandu-i sa ordone deschiderea portierelor si acordarea asistentei medicale evreilor din tren.

In tot acest timp, d-na Agarici a dus o adevarata "batalie" cu soldatii germani care pazeau si ei trenul. Ea a pasit hotarata inainte, facand fetelor semn sa o urmeze. Trebuiau sa strabata distanta pana la linia a 4-a, unde fusese tras trenul cu deportati, semn ca nu va avea cale libera. Prioritate aveau atunci trenurile militare germane si romanesti, care goneau spre front. Asa incat avea de stationat un timp, exact cat era nevoie a intra cu ajutoarele cerute. Soldatii germani, cand au vazut ca grupul de persoane in alb se apropie hotarat de trenul lor, le-au iesit inainte, cu pistoalele mitraliera intinse si strigand: "Zuruck Verboten!" (Indarat! Oprit!). Era o prima somatie. D-na Agarici, fara teama, li s-a adresat pe acelasi ton: "Verflucktes Gesindel, auf die Seite!" (Creaturi blestemate, la o parte!). Cpt. Cocaneanu, stiind de ce sunt in stare acesti ostasi fanatici, din trupele SS, a venit in graba rugand echipa sa se intoarca pe peron, caci la o a doua somatie, acestia vor trage in plin. A fost un moment de panica. Fetele si soldatii cu caldari au facut cale intoarsa. Numai duduia Viorica Agarici s-a repezit ca un glonte in fata locomotivei, prinzandu-se cu mainile de ea si a inceput a striga cat tinea o gura ca daca nu se deschid portierele vagoanelor, pentru a se acorda ajutor detinutilor, ea ramane acolo pana ce va trece trenul peste dansa!

In timpul acesta, nemtii isi vedeau linistiti de treaba, asteptand momentul cand vor putea ordona pornirea trenului, cu riscul, de a strivi romanca aceea furioasa... La amenintarea cu pistolul in piept a unui ofiter SS, Viorica Agarici a raspuns: "Wenn Du mich schiesst, schiesst Du deine Mutter!" (Daca ma impusti pe mine, o impusti pe maica-ta!).

Intre timp, generalului Ion Antonescu, informat de cele intamplate la Roman si neavand autoritate asupra militarilor germani care nu permiteau asistarea detinutilor, a luat legatura cu Comandantul al Armatei a XI-a germana, generalul colonel Eugen von Schorner solicitandu-i aprobarea celor solicitate de regina Mama. Acesta, in cele din urma, a ordonat asistarea deportatilor din trenului cu evrei.

In sfarsit au fost date la o parte usile de la un vagon, le-a aparut o scena de infern: vii si morti, claie peste gramada, cu imbracamintea sfasiata zaceau intr-un namol de fecale si urina. Era prea din cale afara! Pentru a nu alarma populatia orasului (din care peste 7000 erau evrei), care prinzand de veste, incepusera a aflui spre gara, s-a convenit ca trenul sa fie impins indarat, la Sabaoani. Acolo fura deschise toate vagoanele iar cei morti, dupa ce au fost verificati de cpt. Dr. Radu Popovici, chirurgul Spitalului Militar (venit si el cu sanitarii sai, foto alaturata), au fost depusi intr-o groapa sapata ad-hoc in dosul garii.

Dupa intoarcerea trenului in gara dintre cei vii, cei bolnavi au fost consultati de doctorita Falcoianu, o parte din ei fiind internati in Spitalul Militar pentru ingrijirile necesare. Intre timp, dr. Stefan Pasov, medicul orasului, colaborand cu Presedintele Comunitatii evreiesti, dr. med. Reznic Meer, au organizat transportarea, cu randul, a tuturor deportatilor valizi la baia Companiei a IV-a Sanitara de langa gara, unde au fost curatiti, reechipati cu haine noi, hidratati si alimentati, cu ajutorul si pe contul Comunitatii. Bineinteles, sub paza severa, pentru a se evita dezertarile. La randul lor, prin grija Companiei a IV-a sanitare, toate vagoanele au fost spalate, dezinfectate si capitonate pe jos cu paie proaspete, peste care s-au intins cearceafuri.

A doua zi, 4.VII.1941, cu obloanele descuiate, trenul - fost pana aici ???al mortii" - s-a repus in miscare. Pe parcurs, oprind in garile mai mari, se deschideau usile vagoanelor pentru ca echipele de Cruce Rosie sa poata controla si asista deportatii. E drept, ici - colo se mai auzea si cate o huiduiala, venita din partea unora, dar asta nu a influentat cu nimic tinuta ocrotitoare a organelor oficiale. Ajunsi cu bine la Calarasi (pe Dunare), la predare in lagar au fost numarati 776 de oameni. Precum se stie, in 1944, au fost eliberati cu totii.


1. Prin anii ‘50, dupa razboi, victimele, in numar de 53, dezgropate la Sabaoani (nu "370" cum gresit s-a scris!), carora li s-a adaugat mortii in numar de 360, depusi anterior la Mircesti, au fost aduse la Cimitirul Israelit din Roman, unde au fost reinhumate in doua gropi comune alaturate, peste care s-au turnat placi de beton cu dimensiunea de 3/10 metri. Din cele de mai sus rezulta ca, daca intre Mircesti si Roman, cale de 20 km, si-au pierdut viata inca 53 de oameni, fara "minunea" de la Roman, la Calarasi ar fi ajuns numai cadavre.

A fost in mod incontestabil, meritul duduii Viorica Agarici, de a-i fi salvat pe acestia. Dar nu numai al ei, singura; fara concursul tuturor persoanelor sus mentionate, n-ar fi reusit aceasta performanta. Ii reamintim: capitan I. Cocaneanu, general divizie Stefan Ionescu, vicepresedinta Crucii Rosii romascane, Eliza Vargolici, cei trei medici cu ajutoarele lor. In fine, dar nu in ultima instanta, acordul in acest sens al conducatorului statului (si prin concursul prompt al Reginei Mama Elena), a tras mult in cumpana. Mai e nevoie sa amintim si compasiunea populatiei romascane (crestini si mozaici la un loc) care au contribuit cu totii la usurarea suferintelor atator oameni inocenti...?

2. La urma, inca ceva despre doamna Viorica I. Agarici, eroina acelor zile. Dupa anii 1949, a fost despuiata de toata averea ei (proprietatea de la Calugareni, jud. Roman, casa din oras de pe str. Alexandru cel Bun etc.) si aruncata in strada, fara chip de subzistenta. A avut totusi noroc de cateva familii romascane care i-au intins atunci o mana de ajutor. Familia av. Mart a primit-o intr-o odaita, iar dintre evrei, dr. medic Iosif Abraham si fotograful Jack Reinstein organizau lunar, pentru ea, o cheta (bani marunti), pe care doamna nu voia sa-i primeasca decat sub forma de recompensa pentru meditarea unor copii (printre care si elevul Radu Cozarescu). Desigur, fiind retinuta in casele acestora si la masa de pranz. In fond, era adusa in pozitia de cersetoare. De altfel, si umbla cu cosnita de papura in mana, unde i se mai arunca cate ceva...

Ar fi plecat din Roman, dar nu avea unde: sotul, mort de gangrena apendiculara in spitalul de aici (nu la Iasi, cum s-a scris!), cei trei fii, Georgel, Vasilica si Costache, bagati la puscarie... Abia in 1967, Georgel fiind eliberat, s-a mutat la dansul, in Bucuresti. De atunci si-a adus aminte si Federatia comunitatilor evreiesti de meritele doamnei Agarici, fixandu-i o mica renta viagera.

Acum, eroina de la Roman isi doarme somnul de veci intr-un cimitir din Bucuresti, in vreme de copacul sadit in amintirea ei, pe "aleea dreptilor" de langa Rechowot (Israel), creste falnic.

Dr. Epifanie Cozarescu

I learned not to cry
Unless I can't hold it.
The people around
Are running away
Saying: "Forget it!"

"How are you doing?"
"Thanks, I'm doing fine"
It does not matter if
You're sad or suffer
No one will give a dime.

They want to see success,
Money, fame and power.
You have to hide the truth
That your life is sour.

Depression is a shame,
Melancholy - a stigma -
Who wants to be around
Someone who lack charisma?

Go party, spend some money,
Show that you have some fun,
Smile with or without reason (!)
Nobody then will run.

Good Point (!), la cateva mile de Funeral Hills si cu vedere la Death Valley, pentru sublinierea atmosferei generale... (: (

Raspunsurile posibile/simultane, pe care le stim cu totii, sunt:
-cozile din '90 au fost expresia incantarii vremelnice in fata unui lucru nou (libertatea presei) si au avut ca obiect mai putin publicatiile de substanta (rare, e-adevarat) si mai mult ziarele de scandal.
-potentiala audienta pentru ziare de informare obiectiva si de analiza, deja redusa, nu a facut decat sa se subtieze: prin emigrare masiva si prin frustrare cotidiana => neputinta => "la ce bun?".
-majoritatea ziarele care au supravietuit fiind nevoite sa functioneze SI dupa criterii economice, au ales sa functioneze EXCLUSIV dupa aceste criterii, favorizand senzationalul ieftin, substantei.
-au fost rare (a fost, de fapt, vreunul?) ziarele ne-partinice, prin urmare adevaratii intelectuali (principalii "consumatori", de fapt, in Romania pre si post'89) s-au scarbit repejor, ei fiind in continuare putin inclinati sa "adere".
-si mai ales, dar mai ales, romanul mediu evita presa deoarece nu vede in informare o solutie la problemele vietii cotidiene iar "politicul si socialul" ii accentueaza gustul de cenuse care i-a cotropit simtirile si papilele in mod cronic.

Sau poate ma insel...
Presa ticalosita - de zabriski la: 18/10/2003 03:34:17
(la: de ce atat de putini romani citesc ziare?)
Da, fara indoiala ca astea sunt parte dintre raspunsuri.
In plus, sunt prea multe, mult prea multe ziare. Uite, ma uit la revista presei si vad prezentate acolo, alaturi de ziarele care fac eforturi sa ofere, macar din cand in cand, si substanta, tot felul de gazetute cu tiraje de 5-6.000 de exemplare care-si spun “ziare nationale”. E o moda ca fiecare om de afaceri mai rasarit sa-si faca ziar sau sa finanteze unul din umbra. Presa e un instrument de negociere politica. Daca ai un ziar ti se poate face loc pe o lista pentru parlament, poti obtine contracte, poti manevra etc.
Ce vede cumparatorul pe taraba? Vreo 20 de cotidiene de informatie generala editate in Bucuresti (auzisem zilele trecute ca in toata Austria sunt 20 de cotidiene). Cel care nu cumpara in mod obisnuit presa e naucit. Alege la intimplare isi da seama ca a aruncat banii aiurea.
Dar mai cred ceva – ca presa s-a ticalosit, iar oamenii simt asta, chiar daca nu au acces in culisele. Cele 300 - 400 de cotidiene din Romania nu pot supravietui decat cu publicitate – iar clientii de publicitate au aflat repede ce putere au. Ziarele fara scrupule isi santajeaza clientii, ziarele mai decente le fac concesii, publica articole “caldute”, inchid ochii. Sunt putine care incearca sa se mentina si altfel pe linia de plutire – si nu se mai aud in zarva publicistica din Romania.
Ei bine, cititorii nu sunt prosti. Presa produce o singura “marfa”, si marfa aia e credibilitatea. Iar credibilitatea e fragila, se castiga in ani si se pierde repede, toata odata.
E grav. Ziaristii invata ticalosia si compromisul de la sefii lor si de la patroni, care acum domina deciziile editoriale. Vor trebui sa treaca vreo 30 de ani pana cand vor scapa de metehnele astea.
Da, Zabriskie Point. Am vazut filmul demult tare, ar trebui sa-l caut.

Greu de raspuns precis, dar... - de relu la: 28/10/2003 19:40:21
(la: Romani in strainatate)
Pot sa-mi dau si eu cu parerea. Cind am plecat in vara in '89, securitatea era dupa mine. Poate ca de-aia am plecat, dar, daca nu esti speriat de un mesaj lung (scuze), citeste mai departe:
realitatea din Romania nu era pe placul meu
bineinteles ca am vrut sa gasesc un trai mai bun, incluzind aspectul financiar, de libertate, samd
nu am ales calea cea mai usoara; am trecut doua granite ilegal si am ajuns in Austria dupa 4 zile (slabit 5Kg); a fost riscant si un tur de forta in punctul de vedere al vointei
patriotism? HA-HA-HA! Dirigintele in liceu m-a scos in fata clasei si m-a batjocorit: cum imi permit sa spun ca salariile in Canada sint mai mari decit in Romania! -- ca Romania mama ma hraneste cu piine si.. altele (zicea el). Faptul ca ma face mindru sa ma identific cu Decebal, Eminescu, Enescu, Iorga, samd, se poate numi patriotism? Cind intilnesc romani care sint: mindri, dar nu aroganti, modesti, dar nu ca un sclav, silitori, dar nu fraieri, isteti, dar nu care pretind ca toti altii sint prosti, prietenosi, sinceri, samd, atunci mi se incalzeste inima, si ma bucur. Dar sint putini asa.
renuntat la supravietuire? Hmmm, let's see; am plecat CA SA supravietuiesc! Ca cine stie ce-mi facea securitatea daca ma gasea acasa.

Am citit comentariile scrise de altii. Cu respect as vrea sa spun ca cei care sint in Rom. si nu au trait citiva ani buni in alta tara, nu cred ca au un punct de vedere realistic. Domnului din Canada (care angajeaza studenti romani): acesta este un roman care imi inspira respect. Se vede ca el a inteles viata de aici. Domnului care zice ca americanii nu sint prea inteligenti in comparatie cu romanii. Imi vine sa rid -- aceasta propozitie ne spune ca poate dumneata nu te invirti intr-o societate de americani inteligenti. Oamenii peste tot au prosti si destepti, nu conteaza ce nationalitate sint. Am intilnit o romanca care preda matematica in universitate aici si-mi spune ca a avut o eleva romanca care nu a luat nota mare la lucrare; si ca ne face neamul de ris! Vai de noi, daca romani cu doctorat gindesc asa. My point este ca poti sa ai o groaza de educatie, asta nu inseamna ca stii multe despre viata, si in mod definitiv nu iti da dreptul sa ii consideri pe altii inferiori si sa-i rapesti de umanitatea lor, si de dreptul de a fi respectat, de a-ti trai viata in cel mai bun fel posibil. Intilnesc prosti si destepti tot timpul (americani, canadieni, romani, etc.). Nu conteaza; toti sint oameni. Incerc sa-i inteleg. Poate pot sa-i si ajut. Sau poate ei pot sa ma ajute. De ce nu? Un tip care a fost scolit MIT si a avut un IQ pina la tavan a avut accident de masina care i-a crapat craniul. Cind si-a revenit din operatii, IQ-ul lui era sub pragul usii. Sper sa nu se intilneasca cu un roman din ala, care o sa-l considere prost, incuiat...

Fiind aici de citiva ani si incercind foarte serios sa ma incadrez in societatea asta, am realizat ca majoritatea oamenilor de alte nationalitati tin unii la altii. Se angajeaza unii pe altii, se ajuta, si nu prea au fumuri. Cei mai multi (88%) romani pe care ii intilnesc aici si sint noi in tara, sint ingimfati, aroganti, si nu le place nimic. Fiindca viata mea se cam desfasoara intr-un dept. de informatica in universitate, intilnesc de multe ori romani studenti. Cind vin prima data aud: "canadienii astia sint prosti de tot", "cursurile astea sint usoare, sa vezi ce studii serioase faceam eu la Timisoara/Bucuresti/Iasi", "studentii astia de masterat/doctorat fac niste comentarii asa de timpite in ore ca ma mir ca au fost acceptati in scoala", samd. De obicei le spun: "e bine ca tu deja te-ai orientat fiind aici numai de 2 saptamini; totusi, e posibil ca te inseli?". Apoi ii intilnesc pe la sfirsitul semestrului si-aud: "aoleu, ca ma omoara astia cu munca!"

Afara de universitate aud des: "Canada e imputita -- oamenii de la birou sint parsivi/nu e istorie/viteza maxima pe autostrada e 100Km/h/oamenii sint prost imbracati/barbatii/femeile sint obeze/fructele nu au nici un gust/benzina e proasta/masinile americane sint de rahat/samd! Europa era faina de tot!" Le spun: "de ce nu te intorci in Germania/Austria/Franta?" "Ah, nu, ca nu e convenient!" Fiindca am fost un an jumate in Austria, intr-un fel ii inteleg. Dar, fiecare tara are avantaje si dezavantaje. Tara perfecta, din pacate, nu exista, pentru ca noi, umanitatea, nu sintem perfecti! Asa ca adapteaza-te, incearca sa fi fericit cu ce ai, sau daca nu poti, atunci "move on". Nu te mai vaita, ca le faci si viata altora mizerabila. Dar, fiind o tara libera, vaita-te daca chiar vrei, dar nu e sanatos.

Get the idea? Mai sint multe exemple, care pur si simplu arata mentalitatea multora care vin din Rom., de curind, sau de mai de mult dar refuza sa invete ceva despre viata din afara Romaniei. Mentalitatea oamenilor a fost unul din motivele mele principale de a fugi din Romania. Si mentalitatea unei natiuni este cel mai greu lucru de schimbat. Daca as deveni miliardar peste noapte nu m-as intoarce in Romania. E ca si cind ai fi avut o mama care te-a batut si nu ti-a dat de mincare cind erai mic, te-a tinut in casa tot timpul si n-ai putut sa te joci afara, nu ti-a dat bani sau jucarii, nu te-a lasat sa te uiti la TV decit putin, si, cel mai important, ti-a promis ca toata viata ta o sa fie asa. Si-apoi, dupa ce ai fugit la o mama vitrega, care nu numai ca te-a lasat sa-ti refaci viata, dar si te-a sprijinit, cu sperante si bucurii, cu sfaturi bune, cu ocazia de a face prieteni care te vor ajuta, te-a iubit, te intreb eu: o iubesti pa mama ta naturala? De ce nu te intorci la ea? Ceea ce se petrece la un nivel micro, de obicei se petrece si la nivel macro. Singele apa nu se face? Poate ca nu. Dar nu o sa refuz o transfuzie daca ma salveaza de pe patul de moarte. In societatiile mai dezvoltate copii abuzati de parinti sint luati si dati la alte familii. Cind imi aduc aminte de unii prieteni de-ai mei si cum erau batuti (cu curele, cu bat, cu de toate) cu vinatai si vai de capul lor, si cum societatea pur si simplu era de acord, ma bucur ca nu mai sint acolo. Da, inteleg ca lucrurile s-au schimbat; poate.

Ca sa inchei, spun ca da, mi-e dor citeodata de blocul unde am crescut, de dealurile pe care m-am jucat, samd. Dar poate ca este numai nostalgie de copilarie. N-am fost in Rom. din '90. Dar inca am citeodata cosmaruri ca m-am dus in vizita si cumva, nu ma mai pot intoarce in Canada. Cind ma trezesc, rasuflu usurat -- "thank God it was just a dream!"

Ai vorbit ca un tarabostes; nu-mi ramine decit sa adaug cele de mai jos.
