Pentru cei care citesc Engleza - de LMC la: 02/09/2004 01:20:55
(la: Cum sa devii un liberal de nota 10!)
Dupa cum multi dintre voi stiti saptamina asta se desfasoara conventia partidului Republican. Aseara Arnold Schwarzenegger a vorbit, iar astazi toate programele de radio si televizor si toate ziarele sau concentrat asupra speech-ului lui Arnold. Cei care doresc sa afle ce a spus mai jos puteti citi speech-ul lui. Tot aici puteti afla cine sint Republicanii si care este platforma partidului Republican. Citire placuta.

****************************************

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Thank you.

What a greeting! This is like winning an Oscar! ...As if I would know!

Speaking of acting, one of my movies was called "True Lies." It's what the Democrats should have called their convention.

My fellow Americans, this is an amazing moment for me. To think that a once-scrawny boy from Austria could grow up to become Governor of California and stand in Madison Square Garden to speak on behalf of the President of the United States that is an immigrant's dream. It is the American dream.

I was born in Europe ...and I've traveled all over the world. I can tell you that there is no place, no country, more compassionate more generous more accepting and more welcoming than the United States of America.

As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took the oath of citizenship.

Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around with an American flag around my shoulders all day long.

Tonight, I want to talk about why I'm even more proud to be an American -why I'm proud to be a Republican and why I believe this country is in good hands.

When I was a boy, the Soviets occupied part of Austria. I saw their tanks in the streets .I saw communism with my own eyes. I remember the fear we had when we had to cross into the Soviet sector. Growing up, we were told, "Don't look the soldiers in the eye. Look straight ahead." It was a common belief that Soviet soldiers could take a man out of his own car and ship him off to the Soviet Union as slave labor.

My family didn't have a car -- but one day we were in my uncle's car. It was near dark as we came to a Soviet checkpoint. I was a little boy, I wasn't an action hero back then, and I remember how scared I was that the soldiers would pull my father or my uncle out of the car, and I'd never see him again. My family and so many others lived in fear of the Soviet boot. Today, the world no longer fears the Soviet Union and it is because of the United States of America!

As a kid I saw the socialist country that Austria became after the Soviets left. I love Austria and I love the Austrian people - but I always knew America was the place for me.

In school, when the teacher would talk about America, I would daydream about coming here. I would sit for hours watching American movies transfixed by my heroes like John Wayne. Everything about America seemed so big to me so open, so possible.

I finally arrived here in 1968.I had empty pockets, but I was full of dreams. The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend who spoke German and English, translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism which is what I had just left. But then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting government off your back, lowering taxes, and strengthening the military. Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

I said to my friend, "What party is he?" My friend said, "He's a Republican." I said, "Then I am a Republican!" And I've been a Republican ever since! And trust me, in my wife's family, that's no small achievement! I'm proud to belong to the party of Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt, the party of Ronald Reagan and the party of George W. Bush.

To my fellow immigrants listening tonight, I want you to know how welcome you are in this party. We Republicans admire your ambition. We encourage your dreams. We believe in your future. One thing I learned about America is that if you work hard and play by the rules, this country is truly open to you. You can achieve anything.

Everything I have my career my success my family I owe to America. In this country, it doesn't make any difference where you were born. It doesn't make any difference who your parents were. It doesn't make any difference if, like me, you couldn't even speak English until you were in your twenties.

America gave me opportunities, and my immigrant dreams came true. I want other people to get the same chances I did, the same opportunities. And I believe they can. That's why I believe in this country, that's why I believe in this party and that's why I believe in this President.

Now, many of you out there tonight are "Republican" like me in your hearts and in your beliefs. Maybe you're from Guatemala. Maybe you're from the Philippines. Maybe Europe or the Ivory Coast. Maybe you live in Ohio Pennsylvania or New Mexico. And maybe just maybe you don't agree with this party on every single issue. I say to you tonight I believe that's not only okay that's what's great about this country. Here

we can respectfully disagree and still be patriotic still be American and still be good Republicans

My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans how do you know if you are a Republican? I'll tell you how.

If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government...then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group... then you are a Republican! If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does... then you are a Republican! If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children ... then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope of democracy in the world ... then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen ...if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism ... then you are a Republican!

There is another way you can tell you're a Republican. You have faith in free enterprise, faith in the resourcefulness of the American people ...and faith in the U.S. economy. To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say: Don't be economic girlie men!

The U.S. economy remains the envy of the world. We have the highest economic growth of any of the world's major industrialized nations. Don't you remember the pessimism of twenty years ago when the critics said Japan and Germany were overtaking the U.S.? Ridiculous!

Now they say India and China are overtaking us. Don't you believe it! We may hit a few BUMPS -- but America always moves ahead! That's what Americans do!

We move prosperity ahead. We move freedom ahead. We move people ahead. Under President Bush, and Vice President Cheney, America's economy is moving ahead in spite of a recession they inherited and in spite of the attack on our homeland.

Now, the other party says there are two Americas. Don't believe that either. I've visited our troops in Iraq, Kuwait, Bosnia, Germany, and all over the world. I've visited our troops in California, where they train before they go overseas. And I've visited our military hospitals. And I can tell you this: Our young men and women in uniform do not believe there are two Americas!

They believe we are one America and they are fighting for it! We are one America - and President Bush is defending it with all his heart and soul!

That's what I admire most about the President. He's a man of perseverance.

He's a man of inner strength. He is a leader who doesn't flinch, doesn't waiver, does not back down. My fellow Americans, make no mistake about it terrorism is more insidious than communism, because it yearns to destroy not just the individual but the entire international order.

The President didn't go into Iraq because the polls told him it was popular. As a matter of fact, the polls said just the opposite. But leadership isn't about polls. It's about making decisions you think are right and then standing behind those decisions. That's why America is safer with George W. Bush as President.

He knows you don't reason with terrorists. You defeat them. He knows you can't reason with people blinded by hate. They hate the power of the individual. They hate the progress of women. They hate the religious freedom of others. They hate the liberating breeze of democracy. But, ladies and gentlemen, their hate is no match for America's decency.

We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children.

We're the America that sends out missionaries and doctors to raise up the poor and the sick. We're the America that gives more than any other country, to fight AIDS in Africa and the developing world. And we're the America that fights not for imperialism but for human rights and democracy.

You know, When the Germans brought down the Berlin Wall America's determination helped wield the sledgehammers. When that lone, young Chinese man stood in front of those tanks in Tiananmen Square America's hopes stood with him. And when

Nelson Mandela smiled in election victory after all those years in prison America celebrated, too.

We are still the lamp lighting the world especially for those who struggle. No matter in what labor camp they slave no matter in what injustice they're trapped -- they hear our call ... they see our light ... and they feel the pull of our freedom. They come here as I did because they believe. They believe in US.

They come because their hearts say to them, as mine did, "If only I can get to America." Someone once wrote -"There are those who say that freedom is nothing but a dream." They are right. It's the American dream.

No matter the nationality, no matter the religion, no matter the ethnic background, America brings out the best in people. And as Governor of the great state of California -- I see the best in Americans every day ... our police, our firefighters our nurses, doctors and teachers our parents.

And what about the extraordinary men and women who have volunteered to fight for the United States of America! I have such great respect for them and their heroic families.

Let me tell you about the sacrifice and commitment I've seen firsthand. In one of the military hospitals I visited, I met a young guy who was in bad shape. He'd lost a leg had a hole in his stomach ... his shoulder had been shot through.

I could tell there was no way he could ever return to combat. But when I asked him, "When do you think you'll get out of the hospital?" He said, "Sir, in three weeks." And do you know what he said to me then? He said he was going to get a new leg ... and get some therapy ... and then he was going back to Iraq to serve alongside his buddies! He grinned at me and said, "Arnold ... I'll be back!"

Ladies and gentlemen, America is back! back from the attack on our homeland- back from the attack on our economy back from the attack on our way of life. We're back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush.

My fellow Americans ...I want you to know that I believe with all my heart that America remains "the great idea" that inspires the world. It's a privilege to be born here. It's an honor to become a citizen here. It's a gift to raise your family here to vote here and to live here.

Our president George W. Bush has worked hard to protect and preserve the American dream for all of us. That's why I say ... send - him - back to Washington for four more years!

Thank you, America -- and God bless you all!

Instructions for a wife then and now - de MMM la: 16/11/2004 04:16:47
(la: Femeia)
The following is from a 1950's Home Economics textbook intended for
the High School girls, teaching how to prepare for married life.

1. Have dinner ready: Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a
delicious meal - on time. This is a way of letting him know that you
have been thinking about him, and are concerned about his needs. Most
men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal
are part of the warm welcome needed.

2. Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed
when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and
be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people. Be
a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a
lift.

3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of
the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books,
toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband
will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give
you a lift too.

4. Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children's
hands and faces if they are small, comb their hair, and if necessary,
change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to
see them playing the part.

5. Minimize the noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise
of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children
to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be
glad to see him.

6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't
complain if he's late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with
what he might have gone through that day.

7. Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or
suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready
for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in
a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and
unwind.

8. Listen to him: You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the
moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.

9. Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to
dinner or to other places of entertainment; instead try to understand
his world of strain and pressure and his need to be home and relax.

10. The Goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where
your husband can relax.


Now The updated version for the 2000s woman.

1. Have dinner ready: Make reservations ahead of time. If your day
becomes too hectic just leave him a voice mail message regarding where
you'd like to eat and at what time. This lets him know that your day
has been crappy and gives him an opportunity to change your mood.

2. Prepare yourself: A quick stop at the "LANCOME" counter on your way
home will do wonders for your outlook and will keep you from becoming
irritated every time he belches at the table. (Don't forget to use his
credit card!)

3. Clear away the clutter: Call the housekeeper and let her know
you'll need her for an extra day this week. Tell her that any
miscellaneous items left on the floor by the children can be placed in
the Goodwill box in the garage.

4. Prepare the children: Drop them off at grandma's!

5. Minimize the noise: When he arrives at home remind him that the
washer and garbage disposal are still not working properly and the
noise is driving you crazy (but do this in a nice way and greet him
with a warm smile...this way he might fix it faster).

6. Some DON'TS: Don't greet him with problems and complaints. Let him
speak first, and then your complaints will get more attention and
remain fresh in his mind throughout dinner. Don't complain if he's
late for dinner. Simply remind him that the last one home does the
cooking and the cleanup.

7. Make him comfortable: Remind him where he can find a warm fuzzy
blanket if he's cold. This will show you really care.

8. Listen to him: But don't ever let him get the last word.

9. Make the evening his: a chance to get the washer and garbage
disposal fixed.

10. The Goal: To try to keep things amicable without reminding him
that you make more money than he does.

An American Prayer

Do you know the warm progress under the stars?
Do you know we exist?
Have you forgotten the keys to the Kingdom?
Have you been borne yet and are you alive?

Let's reinvent the gods, all the myths of the ages
Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests
(Have you forgotten the lessons
of the ancient war?)

We need great golden copulations

The fathers are cackling in trees of the forest
Our mother is dead in the sea

Do you know we are being led to slaughters by placid admirals
and that fat slow generals are getting obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.
The moon is a dry blood beast
Guerilla bands are rolling numbers in the next block of green vine
amassing for warfare on innocent herdsmen who are just dying

O great creator of being
grant us one more hour to perform our art
and perfect our lives

The moths and atheists are doubly divine and dying
We live, we die
and death not ends it
Journey we more into the Nightmare
Cling to life our passion'd flower
Cling to cunts and cocks of despair
We got our final vision by clap
Columbus' groin got filled with green death

(I touched her thigh and death smiled)

We have assembled inside this ancient and insane theatre
To propagate our lust for life and flee the swarming wisdom of the streets
The barns are stormed
The windows kept
and only one of all the rest
To dance and save us
With the divine mockery of words
Music inflames temperament

(When the true King's murderers are allowed to roam free
a 1000 magicians arise in the land)

Where are the feasts we were promised
Where is the wine
The New Wine (dying on the vine)

resident mockery
give us an hour for magic
We of the purple glove
We of the starling flight and velvet hour
We of arabic pleasure's breed
We of sundome and the night

Give us a creed
To believe
A night of Lust
Give us trust in
The Night

Give of color
hundred hues
a rich Mandala
for me and you

And for your silky
pillowed house
a head, wisdom
and a bed

Troubled decree
Resident mockery
has claimed thee

We used to believe
in the good old days
We still receive
In little ways

The Things of Kindness
And unsporting brow
Forget and allow

Did you know freedom exists in a school book
Did you know madmen are running our prison
within a jail, within a gaol
within a white free protestant
Maelstrom

We're perched headlong on the edge of boredom
We're reaching for death on the end of a candle
We're trying for something
That's already found us

We can invent Kingdoms of our own
grand purple thrones, those chairs of lust
and love we must, in beds of rust

Steel doors lock in prisoner's screams
and muzak, AM, rocks their dreams
No black men's pride to hoist the beams
while mocking angels sift what seems

To be a collage of magazine dust
Scratched on foreheads of walls of trust
This is just jail for those who must
get up in the morning and fight for such

unusable standards
while weeping maidens
show-off penury and pout
ravings for a mad staff

Wow, I'm sick of doubt
Live in the light of certain
South

Cruel bindings
The servants have the power
dog-men and their mean women
pulling poor blankets over
our sailors
(and where were you in our lean hour)
Milking your moustache?
or grinding a flower?
I'm sick of dour faces
Staring at me from the T.V.
Tower. I want roses in
my garden bower; dig?
Royal babies, rubies
must now replace aborted
Strangers in the mud
These mutants, blood-meal
for the plant that's plowed

They are waiting to take us into the severed garden
Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful
comes death on strange hour
unannounced, unplanned for
like a scaring over-friendly guest you've brought to bed
Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings
where we had shoulders smooth as raven's claws

No more money, no more fancy dress
This other Kingdom seems by far the best
until its other jaw reveals incest
and loose obedience to a vegetable law

I will not go
Prefer a Feast of Friends
To the Giant family
II

Great screaming Christ
Upsy-daisy
Lazy Mary will get you up
upon a Sunday morning

"The movie will begin in 5 moments"
The mindless Voice announced
"All those unseated, will await
The next show"

We filed slowly, languidly
into the hall. The auditorium
was vast, and silent.
As we seated and were darkened
The Voice continued:

"The program for this evening
is not new. You have seen
This entertainment thru and thru.
You've seen your birth, your
life and death; you might recall
all of the rest -- (did you
have a good world when you
died?) -- enough to base
a movie on?"

An iron chuckle rapped our
minds like a fist.

I'm getting out of here
Where're you going?
To the other side of the morning
Please don't chase the clouds
pagodas, temples

Her * gripped him
like a warm friendly
hand.

"It's all right.
All your friends are here."

When can I meet them?
"After you've eaten"
I'm not hungry
"O, we meant beaten"

Silver stream, silvery scream,
impossible concentration

Here come the comedians
look at them smile
Watch them dance
an indian mile

Look at them gesture
How aplomb
So to gesture everyone

Words dissemble
Words be quick
Words resemble walking sticks

Plant them
They will grow
Watch them waver so

I'll always be
a word-man
Better than a birdman

But I'll charge
Won't get away
w/out lodging a dollar

Shall I say it again
aloud, you get the point
No food w/out fuel's gain

I'll be, the irish loud
unleashed my beak
at peak of powers

O girl, unleash
your worried comb

O worried mind

Sin in the fallen
Backwoods by the blind

She smells debt
on my new collar

Arrogant prose
Tied in a network of fast quest
Hence the obsession

Its quick to admit
Fats borrowed rhythm
Woman came between them

Women of the world unite
Make the world safe
For a scandalous life

Hee Heee
Cut your throat
Life is a joke

Your wife's in a moat
The same boat
Here comes the goat

Blood Blood Blood Blood
They're making a joke
of our universe
III

Matchbox
Are you more real than me
I'll burn you, and set you free
Wept bitter tears
Excessive courtesy
I won't forget
IV

A hot sick lava flowed up,
Rustling and bubbling.
The paper-face.
Mirror-mask, I love you mirror.

He had been brainwashed for 4 hrs.
The LT. puzzled in again
"ready to talk"
"No sir" -- was all he'd say.
Go back to the gym.
Very peaceful
Meditation

Air base in the desert
looking out venetian blinds
a plane
a desert flower
cool cartoon

The rest of the World
is reckless and dangerous
Look at the
brothels
Stag films
Exploration
V

A ship leaves port
mean horse of another thicket
wishbone of desire
decry the metal fox

Daca mergi la plaja, nu uita de sfaturile lui Baz Luhrman: :))

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and

you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you

effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing

choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
own.. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly. Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young. Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders. Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out. Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85. Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth. But trust me on the sunscreen…

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ?9...Wear sunscreen


If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years youll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you cant grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked...Youre not as fat as you imagine.

Dont worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you

Sing

Dont be reckless with other peoples hearts, dont put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss

Dont waste your time on jealousy; sometimes youre ahead, sometimes youre behind...the race is long, and in the end its only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Stretch

Dont feel guilty if you dont know what to do with your life...the most interesting people I know didnt know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still dont.

Get plenty of calcium

Be kind to your knees, youll miss them when theyre gone.

Maybe youll marry, maybe you wont, maybe youll have children, maybe you wont, maybe youll divorce at 40, maybe youll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary...what ever you do, dont congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either - your choices are half chance, so are everybody elses.

diversificat, n-a stat pe loc.

daca recunosti ca Beatles au fost inovatori (si-ti dau dreptate aici) în orchestratie si instrumente la vremea lor, acelasi argument se potriveste si la Pink Floyd. sunt primii care-au folosit un alt fel de sound (definitii sunt o gramada, prefer sa le las la o parte) si cu instrumente noi, vezi sintetizatoarele de sunet si altele.
iar melotronul l-a folosit Moody Blues cu succes înaintea lui Beatles, daca e s-o luam istoriceste ....

nu vad, asadar, de ce pentru unii-i muma, iar pentru altii, ciuma....

îti recomand un interviu cu Jon Lord din 2008 de la Metal-Express-Radio, în care vorbeste si de muzica clasica, daca te intereseaza legatura. un fragment interesant, la subiect:



Rep.:
Have you found that the attitude of the Classical musicians has changed towards you compared to when you did the Concerto for Group and Orchestra in 1969? I’ve always thought they could be a little on the snobby side towards Rock musicians?

Jon Lord:
Well they used to be, not all of them of course, but are far bigger percentage were like that than they are now. The world has changed enormously since 1969 and orchestras take part so much more in cross style music. They have to; it’s the nature of the game. In 1969 The Royal Philharmonic was a very stiff, established, posh orchestra, a brilliant one, but not one that was used to playing The Concerto For Group and Orchestra. There was a lot of work that had to be done in rehearsals for them to understand the way we played and that was down to the conductor Malcolm Arnold. He was a hero, he was one of them but he understood me so he was the bridge if you like between the band and orchestra. In fact I’ve just done The Concerto for Group and Orchestra in Northampton again with The Royal Philharmonic at the Malcolm Arnold Festival. There was one guy from the original performance who retired about 6 months before this performance so there were none of the original orchestra members left from that performance back in 1969. There were people in the orchestra who knew the piece which was lovely. When we first did it in `69 it took 2 days of solid rehearsal to get it to sound anything close to being right. This time we rehearsed in early October for about 4 hours and the first read through sounded almost note perfect so the difference in attitude is, I think, striking.

Rep.:
As well as the Durham Concerto you’ve also been busy with The Hoochie Coochie Men which is a real down to earth Blues band, which is as far removed from Classical music as you can get. Do you like to keep your musical interests rich and varied?

Jon Lord:
I’ve always thought that being a musician meant just that. I’m lucky enough to be able to play different styles and in fact love those different styles and I feel comfortable putting on different hats. I just love playing. When I was asked to put some Hammond on these songs, I listened to them and thought like it`d be great fun so I was happy to do that. I met them down in Australia in `03 and did some live dates with them. Bob Daisley is in the band and they have a terrific guitarist called Tim Gaze who also happens to be a great singer too. To me he’s an Australian Clapton. He has this lovely laid back voice and this very interesting and accomplished guitar style.

PENTRU TOTI CAFEGII

Up In The Sky
by Amanda Jenkins
When you are down
And you want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

What you will see
Are the stars above,
And all you need
Is to proclaim your love.

Who you will find
And see so clear,
Are friends in mind
You want to hold near.

Whenever you need them
Just look up high,
Call their name
And see them fly.

Every friend you meet
Owns a star
And you can see them
No matter how far.

Whenever you are down
And want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

Banii si fotografia - de Dinu Lazar la: 20/04/2004 01:00:53
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The Getty Images Money Machine
``````````````````````````````````````````````
The popular daily newspaper, USA Today, recently published a copyrighted article (by Byron Acohido) about the top stock photography agency in the world, Getty Images. Although the article focused on tracing Getty's successful rise to the top of the industry, it revealed some interesting numbers. Especially if you are considering working for the company as a freelancer.
First of all, let me reiterate my personal philosophy that I believe good
stock photography is the result of a photographer's (amateur or pro) abiding interest in specific subject areas. For example, wildlife, medicine,
education, children, aviation, sports, and so on. The resulting photographs have the opportunity to be both art and documentary. Eventually they may have historical significance and grow as an asset for a photographer's heirs. In the meantime, if the photographer finds matching markets for his or her interest areas, profits can be made.
If this is your worldview also, then you'll want to turn and run if a Getty recruiter asks you to be part of their freelancer team. Here's why.
I don't pretend to be an economics wizard, but in Pilgrim's Pride
Elementary School, I was pretty good at arithmetic. I think you'll agree
with me that the numbers presented in the USA Today article do not look pretty for freelancers.
They spin out like this.
The 2003 Getty Images gross revenue was $523.2 million, with net income of $64 million. (88% operating costs; 12% net profit). The author is quoted as saying 83% of Getty Images sales comes from freelancers. That's $434,256 ,000 in freelancer photos. Getty gives 40% of that to the freelancers.
That's $173,702,400 .
Getty has 2,500 freelancers (contributors), according to the author. That's $69,480.96 annually to a freelancer, or $190.36 per day (365/yr.).
Running a stock photo business can get to be a marathon, and get to be
expensive. Using Getty Image's own costs/net income ratio (88/12), that
would reduce a freelancer's $69,480.96 gross down to $8,337.72 net annually, or $22.84 per day. But since freelancers are known to be frugal, and government RMA annual statement studies show entrepreneurs to be Spartan,
let's lower the cost percentage (to 76%), and double the net income figure to 24% and make it $45.68 per day, ($5.75 per hour for an 8-hour day).
PRODUCING THE COMMODITY
To produce images, most of your costs are going to be eaten up in camera equipment, travel costs, insurance, lodging and meals.

Pt. LMC - de Little Eagle la: 20/06/2004 21:00:11
(la: PUTEREA RUGACIUNII)
Dear sister,

Ai f. mare dreptate.Exista o fortza si o mare putere in rugaciuni catre Dumnezeu,mai ales atunci cand ele sunt sincere si pornite direct din suflet,pt. ca sufletul tau face o comuniune cu sufletul etern divin care de fapt exista in noi,nu suntem separati de Dumnezeu.El este chiar insasi in rasuflarea noastra si in tot ce ne inconjoara.

Eu personal am credinta mea anume,nu merg la nici o biserica,nu apartin vreunei religii anume si nici nu simt in mine sa fac asta,insa nu inseamna ca nu cred in Dumnezeu.A crede in EL nu-i necesar sa apartii unei anume religii,Dumnezeu e pt. toti si EL insusi nu are religie,am mai scris candva ca omul a creat religiile pt. a se deosebi de altii.

Eu ma simt cel mai bine in mijlocul naturii,IL simt pe Dumnezeu peste tot,in nori si largul cerului,in pomi,frunze,iarba,animale,pasari si chiar si in o simpla piatra.Nu ma pot ruga LUI decat fiind afara in natura,Il simt si deseori plang.
ASa sunt eu si legatura mea cu EL este poate alta decat ai tu sau altcineva cu EL,fiecare si-l apropie in felul sau,pt. ca eu consider ca relatia fiecaruia cu Dumnezeu este intima si nimeni nu trebuie neaparat sa stie cum IL vezi sau cum IL crezi tu in contrast cu altii.

Ceea ce este important e sa fii onest cu tine insuti si sincer cu cei din jur,in acest fel dai dovada ca-l iubesti pe Dumnezeu.
M-am rugat de f. multe ori dar crede-ma ca nu ma rog pt. mine deloc,mi se pare mereu ca nu e nevoie,pt. ca nu vreau sa cer nimic de la EL pt. mine dar cer pt. altii,sa fie sanatosi si bine ,sa traim in dragoste si pace doar,sa nu mai fim atat de egoisti.
De fapt Il gandesc pe Dumnezeu ca pe cel mai bun prieten ce pot avea,nu-l vad departe de mine si cu autoritate cum e descris in Biblie.
Noptile inainte de a ma culca ies afara in gradina,stau pe aleea de pietris in mijlocul pomilor si plantelor,ma uit la cerul nesfarsit(noroc ca locuim in natura si nu-s decat cateva case ici si colo,la distante mari,in rest e numai natura)si vorbesc cu Dumnezeu,cum as vorbi cu tine.Ii spun ce am pe suflet,e o discutie intre noi,si sa stii ca-L simt in mine.

Nu m-am rugat niciodata sa am o sotie buna si frumoasa,pereche potrivita,sau casa etc,mereu mi s-a parut rusinos sa cer ceva de la EL pt. mine personal,dar asa sunt eu.
Nu am cerut si nu m-am rugat dar cu toate astea Dumnezeu a avut grija de mine mereu si mi-a dat ceea ce as fi putut cere prin rugaciuni de la EL.

Tu stii ca am unele afinitati cu indienii americani,ca demult am fost acceptat in tribul navajo-hopi,acest trib este considerat de toate natiile de indieni inca de sute ani in urma drept pazitorul tzarii,al Americii,ei sunt sa zic asa custodele Americii.
Am vazut si eu diverse lucruri de necrezut pt. multi,indienii au mari cunostinte in leacuri pt. orice boli si cand vindeca pe cineva se roaga puternic la Marele Spirit.Idea a fost si este ca un Medicine Man niciodata nu vine la tine,tu te duci la el si niciodata nu iti va cere bani sau orice altceva pt. ca te-a lecuit,pt. ei este o rusine si ar fi nedemni de a mai fi shamani daca cer remunreatii.
Uneori accepta putin tutun,dar sa-l dai din suflet.
Multe din medicamentele de azi sunt bazate pe leacuri indiene,dar ei inca nu le-au spus pe toate pt. ca nu vor ca mari firme sa faca bani de pe urma lor.Ei cred ca a lecui trebuie sa fie fara nici o plata.Multe secrete vor ramane secretele lor doar.

Imi place de ei si ma simt bine in compania lor pt. ca avem aceiasi gandire cu totii,si dorim binele Mother Nature,de aceea cand ne rugam la Dumnezeu,in primul rand ne rugam pt. a pastra Creatia si a o apara.Restul nu are importanta,bani,case,serviciu,etc.Dumnezeu va avea grija de noi si fara a-i cere sa ne ajute.

Astea am avut de spus deocamdata.Important e sa crezi in Dumnezeu pt. ca intr-adevar exista!!!!Nu am nici o indoiala,sunt mai mult ca sigur si convins de existenta LUI.

I love you,
Love&peace,
Ozzy(Little Eagle Who Cries)

"Nu tac!" - pt LMC - de OmuletulGoma la: 05/08/2004 01:19:07
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Da, in titlu il citez pe Goma.

LMC scrie:
Ai dorinta sa-mi inchizi gura, asta nu vei reusi niciodata. Atita timp cit am vlaga in mine, atita timp cit singele-mi pulseaza in vene, voi spune raului rau si binelui bine. Sa fiu sincera cu tine nu ma intereseaza ce faci sau ce face altul atita timp cit nu-mi baga nimeni pe git ideile murdare, sau guvernul tarii in care traiesc nu se asociaza cu ideile aceastea. Si eu cred ca am dreptul acesta. Nu te ingrijora, nu voi vota pentru infiintarea lagarelor de concentrare, dar vad ca lagarele de concentrare pentru care votezi tu sint aproape de infiintare. Cred ca vei fi primul care ma vei lua de la spate si ma vei impinge in cuptor impreuna cu toti ceilalti conservativi, crestini sau altii care nu-s de acord cu tine. Si inca mai ai tupeul sa-mi spui ca cica eu sint plina de ura. Ma intreb oare ce parere au parintii tai, sau bunicii tai despre tine si ideile tale.

De unde atata furie?
Nu vreau deloc sa-ti inchid gura, ti-am sugerat doar ca tacerea este mai buna decat acuzarea.
Conform regulilor acestui forum, eu am chestionat si combatut ideile dumitale, nu persoana. Nu am spus sau implicat ca ai fi "red neck", sau plina de ura. Parerea mea este doar ca esti "misguided", indrumata gresit. Nu am si nu vreau sa fac vreo judecata asupra persoanei dumitale, am mai spus-o. Ma leg numai de ideile pe care le promovezi.

Ma acuzi ca as accepta frumosul si bunul numai daca se potrivesc calapodului meu. Ba dimpotriva, eu incerc sa-ti arat ca bun si frumos mai poate exista si in afara abacului dumitale.
Eu promovez toleranta si ingaduinta, dreptate sociala, dumneata condamni "ideile murdare" pentru ca nu incap in normele dumitale de conduita.

Ti-am spus ca nu consider ca valabil decat Noul Testament, dar am gresit. Nu iau in consideratie decat ghilimelele atribuite lui Isus. Daca a fost divin sau nu, pentru mine nu conteaza - gasesc ca a fost un mare invatator. Tot restul bibliei pentru mine nu este decat dogma si/sau istoria lui Israel. Comentariile si interpretarile celor de "dupa" nu ma intereseaza. Eu il ascult numai pe invatator:

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses neither will your father forgive your trespasses." - MATTHEW 6:14-15

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. The second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets." - MATTHEW 22:37-40

"Why do you call Me good ? No one is good but God alone." - LUKE 18:19

"I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." - LUKE 5:32

"Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven." - MATTHEW 6:1

"Blessed are those who Hunger and Thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied."Matthew 5:6

"Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." Matthew 5:7

"Blessed are the Peacemakers,
for they shall be called Sons (and Daughters) of God." Matthew 5:9

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 5:10

"Blessed are You when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account" Matthew 5:11

"LOVE ONE ANOTHER!"John 15:12

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (NIV, John 13:34-35)

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." (Matthew 5:44)

"There is a saying, 'Love your friends and hate your enemies.' But I say: Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way you will be acting as true sons of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust too. If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even scoundrels do that much. If you are friendly only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even the heathen do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. (TLB, Matthew 5:43-48)

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' "But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. (NAS, Matthew 5:38-39)

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (NIV, Matthew 7:12)

"So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (KJV, John 8:7)

Imi cer iertare celor care nu inteleg engleza. Nu am avut la indemana traducerea romaneasca, dar ce cititi mai sus nu sunt decat vorbele din Noul Testament atribuite lui Isus: intoarce si celalalt obraz, rasplateste raul cu bine, numai cel fara pata sa arunce prima piatra s.a.m.d

ok... ar trebui sa-ti inchipui, da' pana atunci hai sa vedem daca cineva iti raspunde la intrebare.

pentru mine chestia cu fundul paros e ca prima din sirul (a se citi "shir" dupa definitia data de tine) de "insulte" de mai jos (se vede ca iar imi curat computerul)

Roses are red, violets are blue, I once thought I was ugly, until I saw you!

Just because you have one doesn't mean you have to act like one!

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.

Men's brains are like the prison system - not enough cells.

Stupidity does not qualify as a handicap, park elsewhere!

You have a right to your opinions. I just don't want to hear them.

You're breath' so stinky I don't know whether I should give you a breath mint or toiletpaper!

If you can't live without me, why aren't you dead already?

You'd make a lovely corpse!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception.

Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?

Did you eat a brain tumor for breakfast?

You love nature in spite of what it did to you?

I want to reach your mind - where is it currently located?

I wish I'd known you when you were alive.

If you ever had a bright idea, it would be beginner's luck!

What's on your mind? If you'll forgive the overstatement.

When you go to the mind reader, do you get half price?

I look into your eyes and get the feeling someone else is driving.

You're a mouse studying to be a rat.

Don't look now, but there's one too many in this room and I think it's you.

Every time I'm next to you, I get a fierce desire to be alone.

I can't believe that out of 100,000 sperm, you were the quickest!

If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?

There's nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won't cure.

Why don't you bore a hole in yourself and let the sap run out?

You're a good example of why some animals eat their young.



~~~ I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

I love Savage Garden!!! - de Irenne la: 17/11/2004 20:48:16
(la: Ce melodie iubiti acum?)
Imi invadeaza mintea o singura melodie de cateva zile...Santa Monica (Savage Garden)

In santa monica in the winter time
The lazy streets so undemanding
I walk into the crowd
In santa monica you get your
Coffee from
The coolest places on the
Promenade
Where people dress just so
Beauty so unavoidable everywhere
You turn
It’s there I sit and wonder what am i
Doing here




Scuza-mi tristetea, astazi am zburat mai sus decat a fost permis,totusi... si maine voi face la fel!

(la: Parinti si copii)
Si o femeie care tinea un bebelus la pieptul ei spuse:
"Vorbeste-ne de Copii..."
Si el a zis:
"Copiii vostri nu sunt copiii vostri. Ei sunt fiii si fiicele nazuintei Vietii spre ea însasi. Ei vin prin voi, dar nu de la voi. Si desi ei sunt cu voi, ei nu va apartin.

Voi le puteti da dragostea voastra, dar nu gândurile voastre; pentru ca ei au propriile lor gânduri.
Puteti oferi o casa pentru corpurile lor, dar nu pentru suflete; caci sufletele lor locuiesc în casa lui Mâine, pe care voi n-o puteti vizita, nici macar în visele voastre.
Voi puteti sa va straduiti sa fiti ca ei, dar nu sa îi faceti pe ei aidoma voua; pentru ca viata nu merge înapoi, nici nu întarzie asupra lui ieri.
Voi sunteti arcurile din care copiii vostri, ca sageti vii, sunt trimisi înainte. Arcasul vede tzinta pe calea infinitului si El va îndoaie cu puterea Lui, ca sagetile Lui sa mearga iute si departe.
Fie ca îndoirea voastra in mâna Arcasului sa fie catre bucurie; caci asa cum El iubeste sageata care zboara, la fel iubeste El si arcul stabil."

"And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the Archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable."

Fefe - de giocondel la: 12/03/2005 07:17:38
(la: Barfa)
In primul rand, cred ca ar fi inspirat sa imi cer scuze anticipat, probabil si acum voi scrie un mesaj lung lung. Eu nu ma pricep in ale scrisului, sunt mai degraba un bunicel orator.

FEFE: “ Ceea ce tu ne spui este idealizarea omului, care din pacate nu exista. Omul e om, si nu-l vei putea niciodata face "divin", nici tu, nici eu, nimeni, decit numai Dumnezeu.”

Draga Fefe, in raspuns, as dori sa incerc sa pun in perspectiva faptul ca omului de acum 600 de ani, I s-a fi parut idel si imposibil ca omul viitorului sa faca descoperirile ce au fost facute in ultimii 150 de ani. Mintea omului renascentist era incetosata indeajuns sa respinga argumente stiintifice, sa nu ii acorde lui da vinci sansa de a-si pune in practica teoriile si descoperirile.pt ca pareau utopice, idealiste, imposibile.

La fel cum poate unuia ce a trait in vreo perioada intunecata , in vreun trib sangeros ce ingropa nou nasacutii- fete, I s-ar fi parut utopic , ideal, sa ii spui ca intr-o zi, cat de curand, oamenii vor ajunge la concluzia ca femeile sunt fiinte umane, cu drepturi egale .

cand poetesa iraniana Tahirih si-a aruncat valul, acum 150 de ani si a spus: "ma puteti ucide dar emanciparea femeii nu o puteti opri!" si a fost martirizata, corpu-i fiind aruncat intr-o fantana parasita, multi au crezut ca nu e zdravana la cap, ca idealul despre care vorbeste ea va ramane intotdeauna un ideal....cu exceptia acelor oameni ai vremii ce detineau viziune patrunzatoare si care au inteles , admirat si raspandit povestea ei.

Ceea ce catalogati dumneavoastra ca fiind "Ideal"- adica imposibil de atins- este de fapt directia inspre care se indreapta umanitatea, si chiar daca descoperirile stiintifice au doua taisuri ( vezi puterea de distrugere conferita de tehnologia moderna), cert este ca omului I se dezvolta capacitatile si calitatile pe zi ce trece. Omul depaseste bariere nu demult negandite , chiar si pe plan spiritual. Din ce in ce mai mult omenirea incepe sa inteleaga ca aceasta planeta nu ar trebui privita in bucatele, ca suntem cu totii locuitorii aceleasi immense tari, prejudecatile de rasa, religie, statut social desi prezente si accentuate in diferite culturi, incep incet sa dispara sau sa se atenueze si curand omenirea va intelege ca daca unitatea rasei umane nu va fi atinsa, ne vom autodistruge. Asta implica eliminarea prejudecatilor de natura rasiala, religioasa,stautut social , etc.., implica eliminarea imensei prapastii dintre cei bogati si saraci, cultivarea principiului de egalitate in drepturi intre femei si barbati, acces universal la educatie, atingerea unei armonii intre religie si stiinta, etc etc…ceea ce in ultima instanta va conduce la Pace generala :):) alta utopie, veti zice poate...:):)
Omul viitorului, un viitor nu foarte indepartat, va apartine unei noi rase umane, o rasa ce va ajuge la echilibru interior, isi va dezvolta capacitatile spirituale, se va trezi si va cunoaste adevaruri inca scunse privirii umane.o rasa ce nu va mai cunoaste diviziunea si va fi unita.

Adevarat, Dumnezeu ne-a facut divini. Cand ne-a creat. In acelasi timp noi insine avem alegerea si puterea de a mentine un echilibru al dualitatii noastre, de a ne concentra pe ceea ce este luminos, a descoperi in noroiul imaginatiilor noastre false si iluzorii atribute spirituale, a le dezvolta si a le manifesta in viata de zi cu zi.

Refuz sa cred ca oamenii nu se pot trezi din somnambulism, ca ei vor refuza intr-una sa se cunoasca asa cum sunt, frumosi, divini, nobili, bogati si sa inceapa transformarea acestei planete (al carui echilibru este zdruncinat) prin Exemplul Personal.

Daca eu aleg sa imi rafinez caracterul si imi educ spiritul sa manifeste in ganduri si actiuni aspecte pozitive si energii benefice, daca eu aleg sa fac bine si refuz sa barfesc un alt om, si refuz sa fac compromisuri la slujba, si refuz sa fur, si refuz sa denigrez si sa calomniez pe cei din jur, daca eu aleg sa trec peste propriile mele dorinte egoiste si ma pun in slujba umanitatii cu abnegatie, daca imi tratez vecinul mai bine decat m-as trata pe mine insami, daca imi ridic munca la rang de rugaciune, daca aleg sa manifest in viata mea pace cu toata daruirea…desi se spune ca nu se face primavara cu o floare, am curajul sa contrazic si sustin cu Convingere ferma si nestramutata ca: BA da , se face! pentru ca fiecare primavara are o prima floare a ei..totul are un inceput.

Si daca si dumneavoastra veti face acelasi lucru este imposibil ca macar un om sa nu fie atins si incins de “idealismul” acesta si sa nu faca si el acelasi lucru…unu plus unu plus unu…nici nu banuiti cat de puternic este efectul unei actiuni pure, bine motivate…

Omul este ca o lampa prafuita. Desi, inerent, poseda capacitatea de a oferi lumina in jurul sau, este acoperit cu praful ego ului , vanitatii, negativismului..cunoasteti lista. Tot ce trebuie s a facem, este sa stergem si sa indepartam acest val pentru ca Divinul exista in noi si straluceste chiar daca nu este scos, in mare parte, la suprafata inca.

noapte buna, numai bine!

multumesc de elucidare, nu observasem smecheria cu pseudonimul nairda:)

"O DWELLERS OF MY PARADISE!
With the hands of loving-kindness I have planted in the holy garden of paradise the young tree of your love and friendship, and have watered it with the goodly showers of My tender grace; now that the hour of its fruiting is come, strive that it may be protected, and be not consumed with the flame of desire and passion."
-The Persian Hidden Words-

(la: long live the stock market!!)
in Daily Metals Review. Uite-l:

Gold Price Drops in London as Dollar Gains on Rate-Increase Speculation

Oct. 3 -- Gold fell in London as the dollar gained against the euro, eroding the metal's attraction as an alternative investment to U.S. stocks and bonds.

The dollar rose to $1.1928 against the euro, the most since July 8, on speculation the U.S. Federal Reserve will keep raising its benchmark interest rate to contain inflation. The correlation coefficient for gold and the euro is 0.66. That measures the coincidence of closing daily gains and declines in the past year on a scale of -1, meaning prices move opposite each other, to 1, meaning they move in lockstep.

``Gold has slipped further due to the euro's break below $1.20, and with the start of a week-long holiday in China, trade has been relatively light,'' James Moore, a Kettering, U.K.-based precious metals analyst with TheBullionDesk.com, said in an e- mailed note today.

Gold for immediate delivery fell as much as $5.23, or 1.1 percent, to $464.07 an ounce. It traded at $465.36 an ounce at 11:05 a.m. London time.

The metal reached a 17-year high of $475.45 in London on Sept. 22, partly on speculation that a surge in crude oil prices after Hurricane Rita would stoke inflation. Some investors buy the metal as a hedge against inflation. Gold surged 7.8 percent in September, the biggest monthly gain since December 2002.

San Francisco Fed President Janet Yellen last week indicated policy makers may lift the target rate for overnight loans between banks more than currently forecast. Kansas City Fed President Thomas Hoenig on Sept. 26 said inflation is ``high enough to get your attention.'' A rate increase may boost the dollar, and reduce gold's appeal as an alternative investment.

Interest Rates

Policy makers on Sept. 20 lifted the interest-rate target for the 11th consecutive time, to 3.75 percent, and said further increases were likely. The next Fed policy meeting is Nov. 1.

Hedge-fund managers and other large speculators have more than doubled their so-called net-long positions, or bets prices will rise, in the past eight weeks to the highest since at least 1983.

The net-long position in New York gold futures rose 5 percent in the week ended Sept. 27, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission said Sept. 30. Speculative long positions outnumbered short positions by 166,100 Comex gold contracts, up 7,974 from a week earlier, the commission said.

``The gold market is due for a correction,'' John Reade, Reade, an analyst at UBS AG in London, said in an e-mailed report today. ``With the dollar strong, it seems likely that this correction may be helped by moves in the currency market.''

Gold Shares

Gold's drop triggered a decline in shares of gold miners in South Africa, the world's biggest gold producer. Gold Fields Ltd., the world's fourth-biggest gold miner, fell 3.1 percent to 92.40 rand ($14.40). Harmony Gold Mining Co., South Africa's third- biggest gold producer, dropped 4 percent to 68.62 rand.

Gold may rise this week, pushing prices above a 17-year high, as investors seek a hedge against inflation, a Bloomberg survey showed. Seventeen of 33 traders, investors and analysts surveyed Sept. 29 and Sept. 30 from Hong Kong to Chicago urged investors to buy gold. Seven respondents said gold will fall, and nine expect little change.
