The New York Times si rascoala fotografilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 18/05/2004 02:20:32
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Dear fellow editorial photographers and colleagues:

It was with significant dismay that we read The New York Times' recent contract offer to its contributing freelance photographers. It marks a new low point in our industry's downward spiral in the terms under which freelancers are asked to work for publications.

Over the years the Times has been continually diminishing the compensation it pays to freelancers. It has not raised its assignment fees for so many years that inflation has greatly eaten away the value of the payment. By comparison, standard photo assistant day rates in most metro areas of the US now outstrip what The New York Times sees fit to pay its freelance photographers for creating the visual content of its pages. To add insult to injury, in 1998 the Times began demanding web use without additional payment, then a few years later unilaterally eliminated transmission fees, and now is asking for copyright with no additional increase in compensation. The Times is in essence seeking to gain virtually all the benefits of having employees without bearing any of the real costs. Why should freelancers subsidize The New York Times in this manner?

In its defense, the Times has argued that this contract is not much different from many contracts currently employed by newspapers. We feel that joining the ranks of other publishers that attempt to bully their freelancers with bad terms and bad contracts only makes the Times one more bully on the block. Given that the Times takes pride in presenting itself as an organization devoted to integrity and excellence, its treatment of freelancers clearly violates its own cherished principles. We would think that a publication as esteemed and prestigious as The New York Times would find this situation most embarrassing, not to mention demoralizing to those who are asked to distribute this contract.

From a photographer's perspective the Times contract is an abysmally bad deal (for a thorough analysis, please go to:

Sincerely and respectfully,

normalitate, abstinenta - de Cassandra la: 08/05/2005 22:50:36
(la: Oamenii devin homosexuali/lesbiene, sau se nasc asa ?)
Comportament normal in general este acela care nu se abate in mod semnificativ de la medie. Ca urmare, anormal este comportamentul care nu urmeaza tendinta generala, media populatiei. Tinind seama de faptul ca in medie comportamentul sexual uman este cel heterosexual, se poate spune ca comportamentul homosexual este “anormal”, se abate de la norma.

Anormal, mai ales cind este vorba de comportamentul sexual, este folosit insa de multe ori cu semnificatia negativa de pervers, bolnav, etc. Este bine stiut ca mult timp in societatea dominata de religiile monoteiste, homosexualitatea a fost considerata (si mai este inca) o boala mintala. Profesionali in domeniul psihiatriei si psihologiei, tratau homosexualitatea ca boala, de multe ori aplicand tratamente pline de cruzime, si ce este mai important in majoritatea cazurilor fara un rezultat stabil in timp. Doar exemplul terapiei de aversiune bazata printre altele pe inducerea reflexului de voma la vederea imaginilor de nuduri masculine (pentru homosexualii masculini), ne da o imagine despre absurditatea metodelor folosite. Aceasta a facut ca in 1973 Asociatia Americana de Psihiatrie sa inceteze sa includa homosexualitatea in lista de patologii mintale, moment in care incepe sa fie considearata o “conditie” nu o “alteratie emotionala”.

Cu toate astea, dezbaterea cu privire la cauzele si felul in care se poate preveni homosexualitatea, continua si in ziua de azi. Discutiile deobicei scot in evidenta complexitatea problemei si existenta a doua puncte principale de vedere – unul care sustine ca homosexualitatea are o baza biologica, altul care sustine rolul social si ambiental in aparitia acestui comportament. Freed de exemplu considera homosexualitatea in aceeasi categorie cu alcoolismul, prostitutia, crima si nebunia. El credea ca lipsa educatiei bazate pe morala crestina este cauza principala a homosexualiatii. Cei care apara atitudinea conservatoare rezista pe pozitia lor si nu accepta ca desi nu s-a descoperit cauza finala a homosexualitatii, rezultatele stiintifice inclina balanta din ce in ce mai mult spre a acorda homosexualtiatii o etiologie multifactoriala cu importanta baza biologica.

In ceea ce priveste atitudinea fata de homosexuali, moralitatea religioasa impune ideea ca homosexualitatea se poate evita, trata sau se poate rezolva prin abstinenta. Totusi aceste pareri nu tin seama de multitudinea de studii relationate cu comportamentul sexual uman, si cu realitatea ca acest comportament e greu de limitat prin norme morale impuse. Sexul este foarte important in viata oamenilor, este motorul vietii, omul are la fel de mult nevoie de afectiune cit de sex. Si desi exista indivizi dezinteresati de sex, abstinenta fiind o alta forma de comportament sexual, multi considera ca sexul este important si greu de eliminat. Sublimarea sexului este cred posibila numai in conditii determinate, si nu este o abilitate generala a speciei umane.

Un alt aspect important este ipocrizia care domina opiniile in legatura cu comportamentul sexual, si care este evidenta in societatile in care conducta sexuala impusa duce la existenta unor nivele ingrijoratoare de abuz sexual de minori. S-a demonstrat ca acolo unde religia impune castitatea premaritala, se practica tehnici sexuale alternative cu scopul de a prezerva virginitatea; si ca abstinenta nu este calea eficienta de a limita propagarea VIH in tarile africane. (Abstinence only programmes do not change sexual behaviour, Texas study shows.Tanne JH.BMJ, feb 2005; Abstinence, abstinence-only, faith-based, and the psychology of stigma. James JS, AIDS Treat News. 2004 Jun)

“The problem is the increasingly unmistakable efforts from a minority of religious conservatives to sabotage and destroy existing AIDS organizations, and replace them with programs intended to control the epidemic almost exclusively by stopping people from having sex. This problem should be addressed before right-wing politicians transfer funding and control of Federal and other AIDS programs from those who have cared for people with AIDS for the last 20 years to those who have not.”

Istoria se bazeaza pe fapte si documente. - de Zamolxe la: 31/10/2003 20:34:47
(la: ZIDUL RUSINII)
Alien. Te alienezi de unul singur. Nu prea le ai cu intelegerea frazelor complexe, le scoti din context, le trunchiezi si te minunezi de ce emiti.
Eu am propus o discutie logica, bazata pe argumente, date istorice si pe fapte. Pot sa intep si eu, chiar mai abitir decit tine, dar nu acesta este scopul discutiei.
Singura cotizatie pe care o dau este pentru adevar si logica.

Toata justificarea pretentiilor teritoriale ale evreilor in Palestina au la baza ideea reintoarcerii “acasa”. Ori asa cum am spus si am demonstrat logic, singurii care se pot reintoarce sint cei care au plecat. Urmasii unui popor nu se reintorc la origini decit in sens literar.
Aceasta tara (casa), Palestina condusa de imperiul roman, a fost parasita de evrei. Fortati de imprejurari. Motivele plecarii sint neimportante pentru arabii care au venit in locul romanilor, dupa multe sute de ani!!! Nu arabii i-au gonit pe evrei din tara lor, ei pur si simplu s-au stabilit acolo unde era locul gol. Mai mult, evreii din diversele zone ale lumii, au fost aliati ai arabilor si au luptat alaturi de ei.

Citeva legaturi pe internet despre subiect, pe care il stiu mai bine decit multi din carti adevarate, tiparite.

http://jesusneverexisted.com/militant.htm: Jerusalem was besieged by the Romans in the spring of 70 C.E. and ruthlessly retaken during the summer, by which time the defenders had been reduced to civil war, starvation and (according to Josephus) even cannibalism. The religious fanatics made their last stand at the fortress they had taken first – Massada. When faced by inevitable defeat (73 C.E.) they met it with a defiant act of mass suicide. The terrible price the Jews paid for their revolt was the total destruction of their temple and the city in which it stood.

Rezistenta evreilor a durat 3 ani pentru ca dupa sinuciderea lui Nero, a fost nevoie de ceva timp ca imperiul roman sa se stabilizeze.


Iar dacii, chiar daca au pierdut razboiul cu imperiul, nu au plecat din tara lor, care de altfel nici nu a fost ocupata integral, vezi zona dacilor liberi. Dacii s-au amestecat in cele din urma cu romanii si au nascut poporul român.

Evreii s-au stabilit in alte parti. http://www.geocities.com/jewishwarriors/: Finally, in the 9th century, the leaders and the majority of the Khazar nobility came to be Jews. One likely possibility for how this happened is a conversion of the nobility. This is the official version of the situation, as told by the Khazar ruler Joseph in his famous letter to Hasdai ibn Shaprut of Spain.

Asa cum am mai spus, pina in 1948 nu a fost un conflict deschis intre evrei si arabi. Ciocniri, atacuri, probleme locale, da. Ca peste tot intr-o lume a violentei, a dreptului fortei.

Si probabil ca nu ar fi fost nici un conflict major daca evreii ar fi respectat rezolutia nr. 181 a ONU din 29 noiembrie 1947. Iar ONU in 1947 nu era arabesc sau antisemit (vezi lista votantilor). Drept de veto aveau ca si acum foarte putini. Solutia a fost negociata si era suficient de fairplay, desi pleca de la ipoteza “reintoarcerii acasa” a evreilor.
Rezolutia a fost acceptata de evrei si respinsa de arabi. Cei care au acceptat-o au si incalcat-o si acestia au fost evreii. Rezolutia in sine era favorabila evreilor care primeau casa, o tara. La o bere politica.

http://www.mfa.gov.il/mfa/go.asp?MFAH00ps0

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 called for the partition of the British-ruled Palestine Mandate into a Jewish state and an Arab state. It was approved on November 29, 1947 with 33 votes in favor, 13 against, 10 abstentions and one absent (see list at end of document).
The resolution was accepted by the Jews in Palestine, yet rejected by the Arabs in Palestine and the Arab state.
… … …
Adopted at the 128th plenary meeting:
In favour: 33
Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Byelorussian S.S.R., Canada, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, Liberia, Luxemburg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, Ukrainian S.S.R., Union of South Africa, U.S.A., U.S.S.R., Uruguay, Venezuela.
Against: 13
Afghanistan, Cuba, Egypt, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Yemen.
Abstained: 10
Argentina, Chile, China, Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, Mexico, United Kingdom, Yugoslavia.


Partea urita a fost luarea cu forta a intregului teritoriu al Palestina/Israel. Proclamarea unilaterala a statului Israel a fost momentul in care arabii si evreii au devenit cu adevarat dusmani si s-a intrat pe o spirala violenta de actiune-reactiune.

Astept de la oricare dintre voi comentarii pertinente si nu atacuri de joasa speta. Daca vrem sa intelegem istoria trebuie sa o studiem si sa ne raportam strict la fapte si date. Solutiile crizelor se regasesc in corecta intelegere a istoriei.

Istoria nu raspunde la intrebari sentimentale si nici nu trateaza intimplarile individuale.

Refuzul istoriei asa cum este ea pastrata in documente duce la ridicare de ziduri mentale. Ziduri ale rusinii.

E. A. Poe - de sanjuro la: 25/11/2003 06:38:29
(la: Cele mai frumoase poezii)
Annabel Lee


It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee; —
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love —
I and my Annabel Lee —
With a love that the wingéd seraphs in Heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her high-born kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre,
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
Went envying her and me —
Yes! — that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we —
Of many far wiser than we —
And neither the angels in Heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee: —

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee: —
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling — my darling — my life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea —
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Veste importanta din Franta - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/05/2004 15:07:17
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Scrie un fotograf din Franta:

For those who intend to photography in France (you know the place where people have so exotic names, according to B. Yarvin) we have good news .
The cour de Cassation (our Supreme Court) has just stated a decision which largely is in favour of the photographers . I quote verbatim :
"le propriétaire d'un bien n'est pas le propriétaire exclusif de l'image de celui-ci" . Translation in my bad english : the owner of goods is not the exclusive owner of the image of these goods . The jurisprudence is so clear now that we can shoot buildings, houses and so on whithout fearing to loose in Court . There is one condition of course : not to be detrimental to the owner, by giving his adress for instance

Pt. Florin si atat - de Little Eagle la: 01/08/2004 00:36:40
(la: Impotenta nationala)
Hey,my friend,

Listen,citeste ce am scris lui Angel,la tematica mea"Is this the end?"
De cand ma stiu prieteni,colegi de elementara,liceu,colegiu,m-au urmat si admirat ca pe un fel de super star,banuiesc ca ceva in mine atrage si influenteaza pe cei din jurul meu,nu-mi pot explica altfel.
Am fost copiat si ca artist si destui si-au insusit stilul meu,pt. ca fie ca primeam note f. mari si toti ar fi vrut sa le aiba,de aceea ma copiau,dar nu este acelasi lucru!Desigur.

aici in Usa am fost copiat pt. ca eram un artist in B.D.de succes si vindeam,la fel,noi veniti ma copiau ca sa fie platiti ca mine si sa aiba si faima,de aceea sa stii ca nu ma mira faptul ca Angel vrea sa para,Ozzy sau Ovi(numele meu real).Si eu emulez pe Ozzy ,sunt un real fan inca din 1970,port exact acelasi tip de ochelari de soare in diverse culori,cu rame rotunde ce si el poarta,de fapt acum 2 luni Sharon(sotia lui)mi-a trimis postal 4 perechi.
Port t-shirts cu Ozzy pe ele si de aceea gandesc ca asa cum fac eu in cazul lui,ar face si cineva oarecare ca Angel.

Nu ma deranjeaza asta atata timp cat ceea ce scrie el nu contravine parerilor mele actuale,pt. ca ,si sa scriu primele versuri ale lui Ozzy la Cantecul lui"Down to earth",ele pot chiar zice destule si pt. cel ce sunt:

"I'm not the kind of person you think I am,
I'm not the antichrist or the Iron Man..."

Adica e o greseala sa judecam the book by its cover.
Asa ca imi dau seama din experienta de afi fost mereu copiat si in centrul atentiei,lumea de amici nu facea o miscare fara sa ma intrebe "ce facem azi Ovi?"
Nici sa am sex in liniste cu o fata nu puteam pt. ca aveam casa deschisa oricui si veneau,mancau,beau,se uitau la TV aveau sex,muzica,fiecare era ca la el sau ea acasa.

Odata eram sub patura cu o gagicuta faina si un prieten a venit sa zica hello fiind in neighborhood,a stat cam 30 min.de chin pt. mine....pt. ca nu-si dadea seama ca e intrus in drama noastra sexuala.Asa erau toti,nu puteam avea practic un moment de pace si calm sufletesc,mereu se intampla ceva.

Banuiesc ca multi oameni au nevoie de cineva ca rol model,fie si drogat sau betiv cum eram eu,la fel cum un om anume e facut sa fie presedinte de tara.
Dar nu ma intelege gresit,niciodata nu am dorit sa fiu mai cu mot ca altul,sunt cum sunt si asta sunt,iti place nu-ti place,e alegerea ta,eu crede-ma ca-ti voi fi prieten chiar daca tu ma refuzi.

Cam astea Florine si atat,imi place cum scrii si te iubesc mult ca pe toti din cafenea,fete si baieti deopotriva.
Trebuie sa ma reintorc la lucru...de 2 zile ma chinui si muncesc in nestire sa-mi construiesc my own web site,sa-mi scanez si sa-mi pun arta veche si noua sa fac un ban in plus cand vara e f. slow in advertising si zac si nu fac nimic 2-3 luni.

De cum voi avea web site am sa o trimit la cafenea pt. voi toti,poate o pasati la altii si imi creste numarul de vizitatori.La fel veti putea vedea si ce fel de arta am facut si fac,creion,tus,uleiuri,dar in contrast cu LMC(arta ei imi place fiind simbolista si uneori expresionista),arta mea este comerciala,pt. ca in ea zac si dolarii,deh!Nu mai traim in 1800 si mai tarziu la Paris si ne complacem in boema vietii artistice.

Sper sa-ti mai scriu de cum am timp liber.

LOVE&PEACE(majusculele nu inseamna tipete ci o intarire a expresiei si mesajului ei pt. omenirea toata).

Fapte Reale pt. Omulet - de LMC la: 04/08/2004 18:39:49
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Prin simplu fapt ca ai zis:

"Nu m-am mai deranjat nici macar sa deschid linkurile pe care le-ai publicat. Stiu ce contin, si propaganda fascista nu ma atrage."

asta da dovada de um om cu o minte deschisa????

Imi pare rau Domnule Goma, dar interpretarea dumitale este cea care-i obtusa. Daca te-ai fi deranjat numai pentru unul dintre linkurile care le-am listat ai fi vazut ca ceea ce era scris nu era numai de la sursa care publica. Din contra fiecare dintre linkuri arata un "headline" reportat in diferite locuri. De asemenea, ti-ai fi deschis un pic mai mult mintea si te-ai fi educat sa vezi cine-ti sint "prieteni". Vorba aia "Doamne fereste-ma de prieteni ca de inamici ma stiu eu pazi."

Din cite am citit la tine,te uiti la mine ca la un red neck, si eu ma uit la tine ca la un om care are ochii blindati. Ti-ai format o ideie anume despre conservativi, dar nici nu esti interesat sa-i cunosti. Imi pare rau dar pierzi mult mai mult decit tu crezi ca cistigi de la liberali.

Imi spui sa ma duc sa-mi citesc Biblia, si vreau sa-ti spun ca am citit-o mai mult decit ai fi citit-o sau o vei citi tu vre-odata. News Flash: vechiul si noul testament nu se contrazic deloc, ci se completeaza. Si ca sa-ti spun ce parere are Biblia despre prietenii tai homosexuali am sa-ti dau sa citesti citeva pasaje, si din Vechi si din Nou.

Leviticus 18:22
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

Leviticus 20:13
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Romans 1. 18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

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.

Nu are rost sa mai continui, am sa te pun primul pe lista celor ignorati, asa ca nu-ti pierde timpul sa-mi mai scrii.

Alright now,

"Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the night sky they blast,
Through the universe the engines whine
Could it be the end of man and time?
Back on earth the flame of life burns low
Everywhere is misery and woe,
Pollution kills the air,the land and sea,
Man prepares to meet his destiny,Yeah.

Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
Up into the black sky so vast,
Burning metal through the atmosphere,
Earth remains in worry,hate and fear,
With the hateful battles raging on
Rockets flying to the glowing sun,
Through the empires of eternal void
Freedom from the final suicide.

Freedom fighters sent out to the sun
Escape from brainwashed minds and pollution,
Leave the earth to all its sin and hate
Find another world where freedom waits,Yeah.

Past the stars in fields of ancient void
Through the shields of darkness where they find,
Love upon a land, a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home,
Leave the earth to Satan and his slaves,
Leave them to the future in their grave,
Make a home where love is there to stay,
Peace and Happiness in everyday,Yeah"

Si sa nu-mi spuneti ca Ozzy si B.S.au fost sau sunt rai....mereu au spus ceva si un mesaj lumii...sa nu judecam niciodata...the book by its cover,alright?

LOVE&PEACE,

Democrats repel voters, who put faith in freedom

Published on: 11/04/04
America's faith in freedom has been reaffirmed. With the re-election of President Bush, America recommitted itself once again to expanding freedom and promoting liberty. Only the 1864 re-election of Abraham Lincoln, the 1944 re-election of Franklin Roosevelt and the 1980 election of Ronald Reagan rival this victory as milestones in the preservation of our security by the advancement of freedom.


This election validated not just freedom, but also the faith our Founding Fathers placed in average folks to navigate the course of this great nation. By weighing the greatest issues at the gravest times and choosing our path, ordinary people have again accomplished extraordinary things. With courage and caution, rather than fear and timidity, the voters chose a path to ensure others would enjoy the same freedom to set their own path.

This election outcome should have been implausible, if not impossible. With a litany of complaints — bad economy, bad deficit, bad foreign war, bad gas prices — amplified by a national media that discarded any pretense of neutrality, a national opposition party should have won this election.

But the Democratic Party is no longer a national party. As difficult as the challenges are — both real and fabricated — Democrats offered no solution that was either believable or acceptable to vast regions of America. Tax increases to grow the economy are not a solution that is believable or acceptable. Democratic promises of fiscal responsibility are unbelievable in the face of massive new spending promises. A foreign policy based on the strength of "allies" such as France is unacceptable. A strong national defense policy is just not believable coming from a candidate who built a career as an anti-war veteran, an anti-military candidate and an anti-action senator.

Democratic Party policies haven't sold in large sections of America in decades, and the only success of Democrats in presidential elections for 40 years was when they pitched themselves as pro-growth, low-tax, strong-defense, fiscally responsible, values-oriented candidates. Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton hummed the tune but never really sang the song, and that's why Democrat prospects have gone south in the South. In 1980, the South had 20 Democrats and just six Republicans in the Senate. As recently as 1994, the Senate had 17 Democrats and nine Republicans from the South.

A decade later, the number had reversed to 17 Republicans and nine Democrats. With this election, it is 22 Republicans and just four Democrats from the South. When will national Democrats sober up and admit that that dog won't hunt? Secular socialism, heavy taxes, big spending, weak defense, limitless lawsuits and heavy regulation — that pack of beagles hasn't caught a rabbit in the South or Midwest in years. The most recent failed nominee for president stands as proof that the national Democratic Party will continue to dwindle. The South has gone from just one-fourth of the Electoral College in 1960 to almost a third today. To put this in perspective, that gain is equal to all the electoral votes in Ohio. Yet there was not a single Southern state where John Kerry had any real chance. Would anyone like to place bets on the electoral strength of the South by 2012? Maybe they should tax stupidity. When you write off centrist and conservative policies that reflect the will of people in the South and Midwest, you write off the South and Midwest. Democrats have never learned from the second or third or fifth kick of a mule. They continue to change only the makeup on, rather than makeup of, the Democrat Party.

And so we have a realignment election. For the first time, in an "us vs. them" election and in the toughest of situations, Republicans have been re-elected to the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. Confronting an opposition that can win a divided electorate in the worst of times and that has a growing electoral base, the national Democratic Party has a choice: continue down this path toward irrelevance or reverse course. As the last Truman Democrat, I hope my party makes the right choice but know I will not be allowed to be part of it. Such is the price you pay when you love your nation more than your party.

And so while I retire with little hope for the near-term viability of the party I've spent my life building, I retire with a quiet satisfaction that after witnessing the struggle of democracy over communism and fascism, the fear I once held that America might not rise to meet this new challenge of terrorism has vanished like a fog under the radiance of a new dawn. While the threat is still real, the shadow looming across a promising future is gone.

And the credit for that goes to one man. Like the last lion of England, Winston Churchill, George W. Bush has stood alone and risked all to give the world a new, clearer path to the advancement of freedom.

Abraham Lincoln, in his second annual message to Congress, stated: "In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom for the free — honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last, best hope of earth."

George Bush has injected into a region of enslavement an incurable dose of freedom, and thus nobly saved that "last, best hope of earth" — free men.

who got there first.
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.

Scuzati-ma dar mi-am adus aminte ca mai este un scriitor care il ador. Tot American, si tot unul din favoritii mei. Enjoy.


ANNABEL LEE
( 1849)
by Edgar Allan Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Mafia nu doarme - de Dinu Lazar la: 09/03/2005 08:14:56
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Internetul e o chestie si minunata si intunecoasa, care serveste perfect atit multor chestii pozitive, cit si unor mafioti care descopera un cimp aproape perfect de actiune.

Scrisorile cu "sunt fiul regelui Bulipasha al treilea, lucrez cu diamante si mama e baroneasa Bingstein si suntem urmariti si trebuie sa pun banii familiei undeva la fereala si am reizeci de milioane de dolari pe care vrau sa-i impart cu Dvs, fiindu-mi recomandat de alti prieteni comuni ca un om de onoare si capabil, dati-mi contul pe care il aveti sa va pun milioanele care este" au devenit fumate.

Profesiunile liberale si firmele mai prezente pe net sunt luate la ochi cu mare grija de mafioti.

Acum deci si fotografii romani mai rasariti si prezenti cu afacerea pe net vor primi scrisori mai personalizate, in genul:

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

My name is the Prince J from Burkina, my fiancee and I will be getting married on the 28th, of May 2005 at Holy Trinity Church. 15, ave C, Orleans, France.
we are looking for the best wedding Photographer that will capture the details and emotions that wil make the day special in the minds and hearts of everyone involved.

We will want you to work for at least 6 Hours at the occasion and if you are out of france ,we will pay the transportation charges to and from the party venue so indicate in your email if you are out of France and state what it will costs to get you to the party company.

However,I will be making the payment by means of a Cheque.
Let me have your full names,Address,Phone Number,Cellular Number, bank account, your card serial number and the pin of the card, where a Cheque will be mailed to for payment.Moreso,should you be out of France,the Hotel accomodation will be provided for by me.
==================

Tare taica!

Imposibil sa nu gaseasca nigerianu` niste fotografi romani mindri ca sunt invitati in tzara parfumului francez unde fotografii de wedding au murit subit si unde scoala romaneasca de fotografie e apreciata la cea mai inalta valoare, meritata de altfel dupa cum vedem in inalta calitate artistica si tehnica a imaginilor romanesti care matura de zor imaginile europene devenite brusc de tot rahatu`.

Invitatii fotografi vor pune botu` si vor merge la impushcat francu` la propriu si la figurat si se vor mira tare mult cum devine cazu de s-au fraierit si in ce dandanale au intrat si la ce naiba trebuia seria si pinul cardului ca sa faca ala un cec.

Traiasca fotografia romaneasca, in sfirsit recunoscuta de cine trebuie cind trebuie.

Si e numai inceputul.

Unul care sa ne satisfaca pe toti! (comentariu general) - de Georges Valch la: 09/05/2005 17:53:37
(la: Va place Opera?)
Comentariu de Georges Valch
PROUDFRECKLED : M-am dezobisnuit prietene sa masor dependenta mea de un anumit lucru, prin cantitate. Altfel, judecand uneori dupa bucuria din jur, as fi uneori tentat sa ma cred fericit. In ce priveste cultura… Opera este cu adevarat o arta. Una pe care eu ca profan nu stiu cu ce simt sa o percep. Dar in afara de ea, oamenii incep sa numeasca arta o sumedie de alte lucruri, care n-au legatura cu asta.
Honey in the Sunshine : I will try a plate English here, because how you have allready seen, if i use Romanian, I could make mistakes. So, I’ve never said that culture-people doesn’t need to like the Opera. By contrary: The Opera it’s a great art, and if i feel some shame inside it’s because I can’t get that feeling that you, and the others like you have, and feeling touched by this art. About the others shames of people… Maybe i will make a conference in a day 4 this.
muma padurii : Hei(:)),tichar! liv za kids alaun! Mereu ma repet. Dar de ce nu pot trai la fel cu voi o emotie legata de opera? De ce nu pot sa zic: hfygljpojftyikikuiyi;okopkjylkyhoiytjoiyjityjty iar voi sa intelegeti imediat? Si de ce, mai rau, sa zic asa si voi sa pricepeti : yuguygiuoiuytdoijoiiu ?
Intruder : AIDA’de! Bah, Bacu asta era Dem Radulescu shi avea el un sicret da-l aruncara comunistii la parnaie! Pai normal, fratzie cah le-avea omu cu fugile: daca alerga gaborii dupe iel? Mai traitziar, noi estem intelectualy cu tontzii, care kil da oja mai hare cocoshei ca noi la portofel? Io am platit un poiet da mi-a scris toate forumili astea… shal dracu nu mananka nici cat un pekinez. Hauzi? Da ia zi cand hai fost la Opera, atzi rasbyt prin parku ala? Ca cika shade bulangii, pa toate ariile alea, shi le-a cazut chilotii-n vine da imotzie! Da barosane orcand eshti asteptat la o babardoasa pa doizece.www.com.ro cu mine si cu aialantzii care iai pomenit. Emoticoanili aci cika tre sa le faci dan depshte pa tastatura da tot nu ie ca alea originalily. Iarta-ma cacafeaua nu a fost asa bine hiarta si avea gust the nechezol. Da face astia o iconomie da ma spart. Bafto Delo Intrudare, mai da paci ordacateori nu esti la butik si vrei sa imparti cu cineva un sentiment, care din punct de vedere preponderent, conditional si madagascar… (hai ca plek breh ca intra poietu peste mine… si nu mi-am asigurat spatilu dalok, hauzi?).
Honey in the Sunshine (again) : francofil, zoofil, pedofil sunt subtilitati pe care greu mi le insusesc… Da ce zise fratilu nostru zau ca pricepui. Ideea e ca din nimic nu fac un complex, si ma lasa rece ce asculta fiecare. Uite, as putea sa bag mana’n foc ca tu asculti Prodigy.

mersic de biblio...adevarat ca am citit cate ceva din fiecare cand eram mic, dar de asemenea, eram unpic razboinic si "vedeam" cam in genul "what I'd say to martians " by Jack Handey
WHAT I’D SAY TO THE MARTIANS
by Jack Handey
Issue of 2005-08-08 and 15
Posted 2005-08-01


People of Mars, you say we are brutes and savages. But let me tell you one thing: if I could get loose from this cage you have me in, I would tear you guys a new Martian asshole.You say we are violent and barbaric, but has any one of you come up to my cage and extended his hand? Because, if he did, I would jerk it off and eat it right in front of him. “Mmm, that’s good Martian,” I would say.

You say your civilization is more advanced than ours. But who is really the more “civilized” one? You, standing there watching this cage? Or me, with my pants down, trying to urinate on you? You criticize our Earth religions, saying they have no relevance to the way we actually live. But think about this: if I could get my hands on that god of yours, I would grab his skinny neck and choke him until his big green head exploded.

We are a warlike species, you claim, and you show me films of Earth battles to prove it. But I have seen all the films about twenty times. Get some new films, or, so help me, if I ever get out of here I will empty my laser pistol into everyone I see, even pets.

Speaking of films, I could show you some films, films that portray a different, gentler side of Earth. And while you’re watching the films I’d sort of slip away, because guess what: the projector is actually a thing that shoots out spinning blades! And you fell for it! Well, maybe not now you wouldn’t.

You point to your long tradition of living peacefully with Earth. But you know what I point to? Your stupid heads.

You say there is much your civilization could teach ours. But perhaps there is something that I could teach you—namely, how to scream like a parrot when I put your big Martian head in a vise.

You claim there are other intelligent beings in the galaxy besides earthlings and Martians. Good, then we can attack them together. And after we’re through attacking them we’ll attack you.

I came here in peace, seeking gold and slaves. But you have treated me like an intruder. Maybe it is not me who is the intruder but you.

No, not me. You, stupid.

You keep my body imprisoned in this cage. But I am able to transport my mind to a place far away, a happier place, where I use Martian heads for batting practice.

I admit that sometimes I think we are not so different after all. When you see one of your old ones trip and fall down, do you not point and laugh, just as we on Earth do? And I think we can agree that nothing is more admired by the people of Earth and Mars alike than a fine, high-quality cigarette. For fun, we humans like to ski down mountains covered with snow; you like to“milk” bacteria off of scum hills and pack them into your gill slits. Are we so different? Of course we are, and you will be even more different if I ever finish my homemade flamethrower.

You may kill me, either on purpose or by not making sure that all the surfaces in my cage are safe to lick. But you can’t kill an idea. And that idea is: me chasing you with a big wooden mallet.

You say you will release me only if I sign a statement saying that I will not attack you. And I have agreed, the only condition being that I can sign with a long sharp pen. And still you keep me locked up.

True, you have allowed me reading material—not the “human reproduction” magazines I requested but the works of your greatest philosopher, Zandor or Zanax or whatever his name is. I would like to discuss his ideas with him—just me, him, and one of his big, heavy books.

If you will not free me, at least deliver a message to Earth. Send my love to my wife, and also to my girlfriend. And to my children, if I have any anyplace. Ask my wife to please send me a bazooka, which is a flower we have on Earth. If my so-called friend Don asks you where the money I owe him is, please anally probe him. Do that anyway.

If you keep me imprisoned long enough, eventually I will die. Because one thing you Martians do not understand is that we humans cannot live without our freedom. So, if you see me lying lifeless in my cage, come on in, because I’m dead. Really.

Maybe one day we will not be the enemies you make us out to be. Perhaps one day a little Earth child will sit down to play with a little Martian child, or larva, or whatever they are. But, after a while, guess what happens: the little Martian tries to eat the Earth child. But guess what the Earth child has? A gun. You weren’t expecting that, were you? And now the Martian child is running away, as fast as he can. Run, little Martian baby, run!

I would like to thank everyone for coming to my cage tonight to hear my speech. Donations will be gratefully accepted. (No Mars money, please.)

Sunt mai multe feluri de yoga - de mya la: 07/10/2005 01:24:45
(la: Ce credeti despre yoga)
Sunt mai multe feluri de yoga. Uite aici cate ceva despre subiect daca te intereseaza, numai ca e in engleza textul. Regrete sincere ca nu l-am tradus.

<"i>Yoga is a form of mysticism that developed on the Indian subcontinent in the Hindu cultural context. Its origin is impossible to trace, because it dates back to before recorded history. Yoga comes in many forms specifically designed to suit different types of people. As a result, some forms of yoga have gained significant popularity outside India, particularly in the West during the past century.

Introduction

The word Yoga originates from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" (literally, "to yoke") and is generally translated as "union" - "integration" - to yoke, attach, join, unite. Yoga is therefore the union and integration of every aspect of a human being, from the innermost to the external. According to Yoga experts, the union referred to by the name is that of the individual soul with the cosmos, or the Supreme.

Yoga has both a philosophical and a practical dimension. The philosophy of yoga ("union") deals with the nature of the individual soul and the cosmos, and how the two are related. The practice of yoga, on the other hand, can be any activity that leads or brings the practitioner closer to this mystical union - a state called self-realization. Over thousands of years, special practical yoga techniques have been developed by experts in yoga, who are referred to as Yogis (male) and Yoginis (female).

These Yoga techniques cover a broad range, encompassing physical, mental, and spiritual activities. Traditionally, they have been classified into four categories or paths: the path of meditation (Raja Yoga), the path of devotion (Bhakti Yoga), the path of selfless service to the Divine (Karma Yoga), and the path of intellectual analysis or the discrimination of truth and reality (Jnana Yoga). The most conspicuous form of yoga in the West, Hatha Yoga - consisting of various physical and breathing exercises and purification techniques - is actually the third and the fourth stages of Ashtanga Yoga of Yoga Sutras by Patanjali.

Clients and friends enjoy Yoga as means of bringing balance into their lives. They report greater clarity in their meditations and a sense of releasing issues that hold them back.

Yoga enhances every facet of physical fitness the mind/body energy exchange supports a mental clarity and concentration. The strength improves posture/alignment to support our daily activities. The flexibility helps to prevent injuries and keeps us supple and youthful. The breathing practices are the foundation and the link between the mind and the body, providing a valuable tool for releasing tension and reducing stress.

The practice of yoga teaches us how to quiet the mind by placing attention on the breath, and also on the movement (stillness) of the body. "

First-year students at Oklahoma State Veterinary School were receiving their first anatomy class, with a real dead cow.

They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet.

The visiting OU Professor started the class by telling them, "In veterinary medicine, it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor. The first is not to be disgusted by anything involving the animal's body.

The Professor then pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the dead cow's rectum, withdrew it, and stuck it in his mouth.


"Go ahead and do the same thing," he told his students. The students freaked out, hesitating for several minutes; but, eventually, took turns sticking a finger in the dead cow's butt and then sticking it in their mouths.

When everyone finished, the visiting OU Professor looked at them and told them, "The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention."
Freelancers work for a pittance - de Eduard Popescu la: 17/03/2006 07:38:13
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Salutare,

Ca veni vorba de poze pe gratis si alte probleme legate de plata imaginilor - citeam recent chestia asta in British Journal of Photography:

Freelance photographers are being paid as little as £12.50 for an image according to a shocking new survey by the National Union of Journalists...the NUJ claims that some photographers are being forced out of the industry by the fact that the fees they are commanding do not cover their costs - either of their equipment or running a car...
The use of free student labour is also undermining professionals photographers, claims the survey - a point supported by Jeff Moore, chairman of the British Press Photographers Association.

Acuma, nu stiu daca situatia e chiar asa de sumbra, dar am intilnit o domnisoara fotografa care marturisea cu mina pe inima ca iese in pierdere cind face editoriale pentru nume foarte mari din presa londoneza.

Chestia asta cu datul de poze pe gratis eu o vad un pic mai complexa, cel putin pentru incepatori.
A aparut nu demult la Londra o revista trimestriala foarte simpatica, cu texte, imagini si grafica ispirate de capitala. Imi zic: hai sa le trimit si eu o poza-doua, mai stii cum devine chestia? Si dau sa ma uit dupa caseta tehnica si eventuale detalii despre contributii de la cititori. Nu-mi ia mult, dar ce vad ma lasa masca: editorii afirma raspicat ca orice contributie e binevenita, dar nu se plateste un sfant. Insa ei promit ca daca in mai puti de un an de la apritia in revista nu vei fi invitat la cel putin zece petreceri la care vor veni prezentatorii de la „Late Review” , intreaga echipa de la „Hollyoaks” si ceva maimute cu palarii ei iti dau articolul inapoi! Ei, m-am suparat rau de tot, i-am injurat cu voce tare in librarie si n-am mai cumparat revista.
Dupa vreo doua saptamani m-am uitat iar prin revista, mi-am zis ca e prea simpatica si i-am iertat. Apoi mi-am amintit ce zice Dinica despre mindrie in „Filantropica” si le-am trimis niste poze, din care doua au aparut in numarul urmator… Acum, calculul meu a fost asa: eu sint inca tinar, si inca un termen in enumerarea „Publicat in…” la CV e de folos, da-i la naiba editorii aia cacaciosi care se pling ca ei duc revista la distribuitori cu metroul si atrag mereu atentia ca in revista nu exista publicitate (asa o fi, dar eu sint convins ca ei scot bani frumosi din ea).

Bine, astia-s mici si prapaditi dar acum zece zile primesc un mail de la o doamna de la "Professional Photographer", revista mare, tiparita impecabil, cu 'jdemii de exemplare vindute lunar, cum ca ei ar dori sa publice o fotografie de-ale mele; desigur, gratis.
Desigur, mi-am dat acordul.

Asa ca eu cred ca lucrurile stau in felul urmator: daca esti pus in situatii de genul asta, gindeste-te in primul rind (sau numai) la tine, la ce foloase poti tu sa tragi dintr-o eventuala aparitie neremunerata. Daca (si numai daca) crezi ca tu ai de cistigat cu adevarat mai mult decit „clientul”, eu zic ca e OK…
