Mos Craciun - de PROUDFRECKLED la: 12/12/2006 02:19:29
(la: Ora de compunere: "Intalnire de gradul trei cu Mos Craciun")
Cliiiiing, Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,susura iPodul pe noptiera.Desteptarea!
-Azi am de stat pe-afara nu gluma asa ca-mi pun hamletii noi.Unde-s forfecutele fine sa tai eticheta?dupa ce a intors totul cu susu-n jos , hotari sa-i imbrace asa.Surprins ,a vazut imprimat in locul etichetei,omni dry for moisture control.Mai sa fie!
Incarcatul saniei dura mai putin ca-n alte dati,si cintarea mai nimic.Pfft,tramvaie de tabla?Anul asta aproape ca nici nu mai era nevoie sa deschida scrisorile,ce mi-e si cu mondializarea!In cor si-au dorit copii pe " Andrew, mâna de otel în manusa de catifea"plimba catelul,joaca sah,curata litiera,face lectiile si cite si mai cite.Si-a amintit cu un suris anul 1996 cind a uitat sa scoata bateriile.Din sac, miile de Tamagotchi faceau o harmalaie ce l-a petrecut prin toate continentele.
In antreu,linga usa ,una linga alta-l asteptau cizmele ,de data asta comanda speciala made in Canada !Aruca o privire in urma sa vada,toate aparatele sunt deconectate ?Ferestrele bine inchise?Mincare suficienta pentru motanul zarazei sc, apa?Da.. n-a uitat nimic.
S-a asezat pe scaunul din hol sa se incalte,operatiune din ce in ce mai dificila cu fiecare an care trece.A trebuit sa-si puna ochelarii.Alta stampila cu litere mici pisate se cerea citita. : titanium ice crusher thinsulate ultra. Putin descumpanit ,continua sa-si traga fermoarele,sa preseze capsele, sa-nchida clapele.Daca intorceai capul puteai sa-ti imaginezi un step indracit.Eh ,gata in sfirsit ,inchise usa pe dinafara.
Ca-n fiecare an in seara de ajun, se aventura in praful sidefiu multicolor,se infasura in faldurile irizante ale aurorei boreale.Scufundate in siajul de curcubee legate strasnic de sanie se puteau zari bastonasele stelutelor de Craciun ce infasurau sclipici ca la chermesa ,vata pe bat.
Ahaaaa ,asa se explica scinteile ce ne-au vrajit copilaria,cum de nu mi-am dat seama pina acum!

Astept Craciunul fara nerabdare, dar cu placere. Pentru mirosul de brad, pentru masa intinsa de sarbatoare, pentru Stille Nacht...

Fac abstractie de tot circul publicitar din jurul sarbatorii.

Imi place sa fac si sa primesc cadouri. Ma gandesc la cei dragi, la ce si-ar dori, la bucuria pe care o sa le-o fac:) La bucuria pe care mi-o fac ei:)

Ma gudur cu inversunare catre D-Voastra, care mi-ati caracterizat epistola drept nu prea idioata!
Apreciez, dar nu ma las manjit de-orgoliul gadilat! Rezist. Cu greu.

"Chiar sa nu conteze banii in viata noastra?", ma-ntreaba tanara Monika. Imi zvarlu pletele din ochi, inshfac o bere, ca nu-i mai vin, ma concentrez un pic si-ncep.
Sa-mi rasucesc o tigare. Tutun danez, luat pe Internet si fara taxe, la borcan. Bun. Ieftin; de patru ori mai ieftin. Si bun. De doua ori mai bun decat Marlboro.
Tot ce-i nevoie sa inveti este s-o rasucesti cu propriile manute.
Un pas mic pt mine, desi imens pentru-omenire.
Invatand s-o rasucesc cu propriile-mi degetele, nevoia mea de bani a scazut cu 400% in privinta cheltuielilor pt tabac, sau iarba dracului, cum i se mai spune, pe buna dreptate.
In egala masura, nevoia mea de-a pupa-n c ur vreo jigodie de sef tampit a scazut, la randul ei. Un pic, nu de tot. Inca.
Still working on this.
Mai multe amanunte, Monika, despre cum sa traim fericiti nepasandu-ne de faptul c-avem prea multi bani nemunciti...in viitor, de chiar vrei sa afli.

Pan'atunci, numai bine si multi pupici dulci, mai ales dupa ce ne vom fi trimis reciproc pozele, de-nceput. Nu?
Carpe Diem, putain de bordel de m-de, vorbind pe ieuropeneste, c'as' zic asa!

Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra - de ilana gillon la: 22/10/2003 09:14:24
(la: A existat holocaust in Romania?)
Sint in Israel de 40 ani si nu mai vorbesc/scriu bine Romaneste. Asi vrea sa continui in Englezeste.

I reached this site completely by chance and was amazed to see that the situation of the Jews in Romania during the communist era and before is still of such a huge interest.
My father Ing. Aurel Rozei was one of the engineers that were employed in the first Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra project. He was sentenced to death in 1952 for sabotageing the works. Is this trial known now in Romania ? What is the attitude towards it. Any information will be highly appreciated.
Mea culpa! - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/11/2003 05:51:03
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Pe omu` respectiv il cheama Spencer Tunick. Se gasesc pe web multe poze realizate de el.

Coincidenta este ca domnia sa a fost motivul unui schimb de replici in lista de discutii Fotopro, intre mine si un fotograf american, mai putin prezent pe net - pentru ca uraste computerul - si anume Bruce Esbin.

Intii imi scrie Bruce:

===========================

Spencer Tunick, he is the DUDE!!! When someone is able to get 450
naked women to pose for them in Grand Central Station in NYC, then they are the greatest photographer in the world. Until someone is
able to do this on the Moon then his title will remain.

===========================================

La care eu raspund:

> I am very curious to see what pictures it have made...
>
> His site is ... I have not words... go here:
> http://www.spencertunick.com/individuals.html
>
> It is an idiot... This pictures are made by a groggy man... I cannot
> believe.

> Best regards,
>
> Dinu
=============================================
La care Bruce:

Though I was making a joke about Tunick being the "world's greatest
photographer". All joking aside however I do think he is a great
photographer, and I'll tell you why. Photography as you know is just a
tool that allows people to see many different things in a two
dimensional world, a world that despite being two dimensional still
enables us to experience the image on a high information level.

For me the genius of what Tunick does is showing the Homo-Sapien
species as group of animals without the usual protective barrier of
clothing in different and varied environments. Very interesting
environments at least for me. Buenos Aires, New York City, Antarctica,
Vienna, St. Petersburg, etc. all juxtaposed with a single naked human
form or in huge naked groups. It is strangely interesting because it is
something we would never see otherwise especially the groups. In that
sense it is art because it allows us to see something very unique and
thought provoking on the nature of being human.

Some people could say anyone with a camera could take a picture of a
naked person outdoors, and they would be right, however let them try
and go through the effort to organize the large groups of people and
get the permission of international city governments as Tunick
succeeded in doing. So for me Tunick is far from being an "idiot" or a
"groggy man". For me he is a genuine artist with a nice sense of humor who is exploring the human form in an interesting way through the use of photography.
==========================================

Replica mea este:

> All that you write here is a good sense and true. Seeing so, it is OK.
>
> But... the light, the composition, the color, the perspective, the art?
>
> I need only a idea, only a concept? I do not need any professional sense of the light?
>
> I believe that you understand me...
>
> When I see a picture, I give in my mind notes for technique, art (
> composition) and idea.
>
> 0+0+10/3=3,3...

=======================================
Si Bruce continua:

Sometimes the technique is secondary to the concept, sometimes the technique is the concept. What I've found refreshing with Tunick's photography is his relative lack of obvious technique, the almost snapshot like quality of his pictures, as if he just showed up accidently with a Ricoh G1 loaded with color negative film and just snapped a shot of this strangeness before him.
This is what gives it power, the utter banality of technique.

============================================================

Asa ca si intre profesionisti parerile sunt impartite.
Succesul comercial al lui Tunick este insa imens.
Mie personal nu imi place ce face. Asta nu conteaza desigur.

Am vrut sa vedeti insa dincolo de usile inchise cam cum gindesc fotografii...sau unii dintre ei.

Dupa mine, talent este sa iei o cizma si sa o fotografiezi, si sa para mai atragatoare si mai sexy decit o playmate, nu sa umpli o gara cu o suta de femei goale si sa faci glamour.

Tunick : oamenii ca o turma - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/11/2003 09:50:06
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
aaa...sigur ca arta ar trebui sa transmita idei, da` fiecare arta cu meshteshugu` sau... una e meshteshugu` si alta e ideea... una fara alta nu se poate... ai o gara cu o suta de femei goale? Asta e o idee. Si? In conceptia mea asta nu ajunge... trebuie lumina, cadru, atmosfera... iacata ce spun cei mari:

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

-Ansel Adams

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

-John Sexton

Articol din cotidianul israelian Ha'aretz - de Filip Antonio la: 31/01/2004 19:18:05
(la: A existat holocaust in Romania?)
Right-wing Romanian politician to visit Israel

By Amiram Barkat



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




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

pt. Andre Morariu(...un anonim) - de Little Eagle la: 15/03/2004 12:27:23
(la: Cat va ramane din salariu?)
Am stiut ca voi stirni iar contradictii.Mr. Andre Morariu sa te iei de mina cu Renate.Nu am sa mai revin la cele ce am scris deja ci doar la unele mici precizari pt. ca observ din textul tau cu cita amaraciune dar si parca un iz de invidie incerci sa faci aluzii cum ca as fi mincinos,folosind unele exemple ale altor romani ce ai cunoscut.
Nu stiu de ce m-ai pune in aceiasi oala cu ei toti?Crezi ca ma laud acasa si pe forumuri cu viata mea..roz?CE stii tu despre mine?NICI nu ma cunosti macar si personal eu NU as vrea sa te cunosc!
Se pare ca ai venit si traiesti undeva intr-o tara straina si iti dai seama ca esti limitat si nu te poti realiza mai mult decit poti acum si stii ca in acest punct(stand still)vei ramine.
Crezi ca umblu dupa "sonder angebote",habar n-am ce sint,cind lunar cheltuiesc peste 600$ cumparind mincare pt. veveritele si pasarile din gradina????
No my friend,NU locuiesc in vreun condo,si am un credit bancar f. BUN si nicidecum in vreun apt.mic si ieftin!!!Ce am scris despre mine e purul adevar curat si in fapt I don't give a damn ce gindesti si crezi despre mine.
Si DA conduc UN VOLVO S60 TURBO MODEL 2004,ai ceva impotriva???
Peste 2 ani iau altul modl nou,ti se pare ciudat si de necrezut????
Un alt lucru: poate nu esti familiar cu conceptul de artist FREE-LANCE,ce ar fi pe romaneste,liber profesionist,observ ca pui cuvintul"acasa" in ghilimele,ca si cum si din NOU ti se pare o aberatie si o minciuna de-a mea!
De ce ti se pare atit de necrezut ca pot lucra de "acasa"?Am computer si sa te mai oftic putin,Mac OS X 2.5 cu G-power 5,cu ecran plat stil cinema lung de 44cmx 30cm,printer hpdeskjet3820,scanner Epson Perfection 2450 Photo,fax machine Sharp UX P100,xerox machine Canon 3480 high resolution,si toate m-au costat 6.234$ pe care ia-m platit semnind un CEC BANCAR din fondurile mele din banca!!
Vrei sa stii ce inseamna artist free-lance si cum imi fac meseria?
Pe scurt:
Agentul meu imi da telefon si imi explica comanda ce o are de la agentia de advertising(de ex. J.W.Thompson sau Saatchi&Saatchi ori BBDO sau Grey adv,sau Spike Lee-regizorul celebru pt. care lucrez de 7 ani acum!Ori si asta ti se pare nerealist?),apoi imi trimite prin fax scenariul si incep sa-l ilustrez in creion apoi scanez ilustratiile si prin photoshop(Adobe 7.0)si internet dupa ce pun ilustratiile intr-un dosar ce creez pe numele firmei le trimit email agentului meu.El le pune pe site-ul firmei noastre spre a fi vazute de directorul artistic de la agentie pt. ca uneori sint schimbari de facut altori nu,si cind directorul e de acord,telefoneaza agentl meu si el la rindul lui pe mine si imi spune ca pot incepe sa colorez(in magic markers doar) ilustratiile in creion.
Dupa ce le termin de colorat,le scanez iar si le trimit agentului via email si am incheiat munca,comanda e terminata.
Ilustratiile sint mereu de 8cmx10cm si fiecare e platita cu 250$ bucata.
In general sint in jur de 10-16 ilustratii deci 2500$-4000$ si din totalul sumei agentul meu ia 20%,eu restul de 80%.
In general comenzile mereu trebuie terminate intr-o zi pt. ca a doua zi agentia sa le aiba pe site si sa le prezinte clientului ce o angajeaza pt. reclama TV.
Cred ca te-am edificat ce inseamna a lucra de..."acasa"!!!Si de ce POT cistiga multi bani!!!Si de ce nu-mi pot permite sa conduc o rabla si sa locuiesc in vreun condo sau apt. mic!!!
Si in final,intr-ADEVAR TOTUL E ROZ cind ma descriu!

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy

Smena-8M - de Dragos Bora la: 25/04/2004 10:24:53
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Salut! Shterpelita de pe zenitcamera@yahoogroups.com:
--------------------------------------------------------------

Another likely streetshooter from LOMO is the toy-like
Smena-8M. It has one unique attribute which no other camera can
have- its being toy-like will make it (or its owner) survive
mean streets. No thief would even consider stealing it. Aside
for this, the Smena-8M is by all means a complete camera. It is
the best beginner's camera. Having no automatic features can
make anyone familiar with not only the parts, but also their
raison d'etre. It has shutter speed range which is almost like
the one found on a Zorki or Zenit- except that it starts at 1/15
and tops at 1/250. Its lens is a real anastigmat- a Triplet-
which focuses as a unit*, rather than by front cell
displacement, as with most compact cameras. The Smena-8M is
also light, and simple to use.
And being mechanical means that it is relatively free from the
problems which ail the electronic Kiev 35A or the LOMO LKA.

Committee to Protect Journalists

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

CPJ Names World's Worst Places to Be a Journalist

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

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


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


WORLD'S WORST PLACES TO BE A JOURNALIST:

IRAQ

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

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

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

CUBA

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

ZIMBABWE

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

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

TURKMENISTAN

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

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


BANGLADESH

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

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

CHINA

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

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

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

ERITREA

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

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


HAITI

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

THE WEST BANK AND GAZA

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

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

RUSSIA

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

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

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

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

(la: De ce sexul in public e dezaprobat?)
Draga Cresida,

E opinia ta si ai dreptul sa crezi si sa gindesti orice vrei despre mine.
Eu stiu cine sint si cine am fost,am trait viata mea,nu a ta.Am ajuns insa la concluzia ca nu mai are sens sa mai vorbesc despre mine de acum incolo la cafenea.
Daca ai vazut artificii sau paradisul cind ai avut sex de ce nu scrii ?Poate mai invat ceva nou ce nu stiu de la tine.

daca ai citit toate textele mele legate de sex si dragoste,iti vei da seama ca un om se poate schimba f. mult(in cazul meu)si nu cred ca mi-am pierdut timpul degeaba,in viata inveti mereu si e o experienta,o karma.

De unde stii ...cind se prefac femeile ca au orgasm?Poate stii din experienta?
Si am scris si repet ca este adevarat ca nu am iubit in tineretile mele,au fost crazy days and many years si nu ma mai repet acum.
Sa stii ca atunci cind consumi droguri,esti f. f. in mood for sex,poate nu ai luat droguri si nu stii.
Eu doar am scris despre mine si de acum inainte nu o voi mai face!

Si citeste si textul in care am scris ca viata mea s-a schimbat de 14 ani incoace de cind sint casatorit si te asigur ca sotia mea NU are orgasme false!!!
Si gindeste-te la un alt lucru:cind eram tinar(nu-s nici azi chiar un mos,am 48 ani dar multi nu cred,sint convinsi ca am 35 inca am par negru),femeile mereu m-au gasit f. atragator,este chiar asa de greu sa realizezi ca femeile nu se faceau ca au orgasme, ori ca eu...nu ma chinuiam sa le satisfac???
Cu astea am incheiat subiectul.See you too,but I won't have sex with you.
But I still love you,indiferent ca ma critici.

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy/Don Juan de Marco

Ps:Stii cum aratam in tinerete?Ca Johnny Depp!Spune-mi ca nu ai cadea in bratele lui?
Era de ajuns sa fac cu ochiul si sa zimbesc.
Be good and cool.

Ode to all women - de Little Eagle la: 08/05/2004 18:51:17
(la: De ce nu sunt femeile niciodata multumite?)

" Our life together is so precious together
We have grown,we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere alone

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame,I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over,starting over.

Everyday we used to make it love
Why can't we be making love nice and easy
It's time to spread our wings and fly
Don't let another day go by my love
It'll be just like starting over,starting over.

Why don't we take off alone
Take a trip somewhere far,far away
We'll be together all alone again
Like we used in the early days
Well,well,well darling

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame,I Know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over,starting over.

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown,we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere..."

Lyrics and song-John Lennon

Draga tty,ti-am raspuns la subiect.

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy






















Fratilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 13/05/2004 15:32:46
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Fratilor mei fotografi, care dau cu citeala pe aici uneori da` nu scriu un rind pen`ca ii doare deshtu pe tastatura, le transmit mesajul unui amic de pe o lista de discutii; cine are urechi de auzit, sa inteleaga, cine nu, asta e...

===============================================

Love him or hate him, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld provided a powerful endorsement for the value of photographs during his Congressional testimony this week. When asked why earlier written warnings of prisoner abuse issued by the International Red Cross hadn't stirred the same response as the recent photos have, Rumsfeld replied, "It's the photographs that gives one the vivid realization of what actually took place . . . words don't do it."
An official with Amnesty International (whose name I didn't catch) was also recorded saying, "pictures are crucial for getting the public turned on to the story."

Remember these words the next time an editor asks you to sign away your copyright, offers you a token sum because, "it won't run very large" or, "we NEVER pay more than that," or tries to tell you that they can probably just
find something from stock to "fill the space." Human beings' ability to
draw pictures predates our ability to read and write by tens, even hundreds, of thousands of years. And even in this age of image overload and digital everything, photographs still remain one of the most powerful forms of communication.

Go out and make good images, and don't let anyone diminish their value.
