(la: Muzica)
continuare...
...
Maybe they're there
Or maybe it's nothing at all
As she draws lipstick smears on the wall

The girl in the other room
She powders her face
And stares hard into her reflection

The girl in the other room
She stifles a yawn
Adjusting the strap of her gown
She tosses her tresses
Her lover undresses
Turning the last lamp light down
What's that voice we're hearing
We should be sleeping
Could that be someone who's weeping
Maybe she's there
Maybe there's nothing to see
Just a trace of what used to be
The girl in the other room
She darkens her lash and blushes
She seems to look familiar

The UPDIG consortium - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/11/2006 06:15:44
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The UPDIG consortium succesfully presented at the Photo Plus in New York,
Version 2 of the Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines (originally
posted in their website last October ).

http://www.updig.org/published/Updig.Downloads.html

We should encourage each and everyone involved in commercial digital photography
to download this documents and actually submit the info to stubborn clients ,
designers and everyone in the digital food chain, as to be able to provide a
better approach to standard procedures for delivery, archiving etc.

It is never the last word in these matters, but so far it is a comprehensive
and massively endorsed set of methods and techniques, worth reviewing it.

Actually, ASMP and other groups are suggesting that photographers who are
compliant of the UPDIG methods and techniques should "help the cause" clearly
stating it in their invoices, websites etc.

At the very least, it sets a point of reference against which to compare results,
and a common sense ground to discuss with less knowledgeable people.

So, please, download the pdf documents, familiarize with their contents and keep
them handy for reference.

2 Time Magazine Journalists Hurt in Iraq
By The Associated Press

19 December 2003

(AP) -- A senior reporter and a veteran photographer for Time magazine
were wounded along with two U.S. soldiers when a grenade was tossed into
their Humvee, the military and the magazine said Thursday.

Time senior correspondent Michael Weisskopf and contributing
photographer James Nachtwey were traveling with a U.S. Army patrol in
Baghdad on Wednesday night when the attack occurred, a statement from Time
managing editor Jim Kelly said.

A military spokesman said they were with a unit of the Army's 1st
Armored Division.

The military official, who spoke only condition of anonymity, said one
of the journalists was severely wounded and the other was slightly injured.
Time said both were in stable condition and were awaiting transfer to a U.S.
military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.

Nachtwey is an award-winning photographer known for haunting images of
war and poverty. He was the subject of a 2001 Oscar-nominated documentary,
"War Photographer," and has won many awards. This year he shared a $1
million Dan David prize for documenting "the apocalyptic events of our
time."

Weisskopf is an award-winning correspondent based in Washington. He
covers national politics and investigations and was a finalist in the 1996
Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.

The Paris-based World Association of Newspapers has said that at least
16 journalists have been killed in Iraq this year. Many others have been
wounded.

In the last known incident, police said the editor of an independent
newspaper in the northern city of Mosul was shot and killed on Oct. 28.

e totusi comedie.... - de Dinu Lazar la: 24/02/2004 13:57:13
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Ce mi s-a parut interesant e ca despre coordonatorul stiintific al acestei bulversante lucrari, domnul Marius Rotar, aflam la o cautare pe Internet ca cineva cu acest nume ar fi ceva cu IMM-uri, si ca la o adunare, care va sa zica, "La inchiderea lucrarilor forumului, d-l Marius Rotar a multumit atat participantilor, cat si celor 42 de sponsori care au contribuit la reusita acestei manifestari".

Mai aflam din alta parte ca cercetatorul doctorand in cauza, sau altcineva cu acest nume, a prezentat cindva o comunicare cu titul "Regarding suicide in Transylvania in the last half of 19th century - Marius Rotar ”1 Decembrie 1918” University - ceea ce desigur are mare tangentza cu fotografia si cu aafeul, care era tot o treaba sinucigasha, prin interpolare.

Alte lucrari sau referiri nu am aflat, decit ca a treia persoana cu acest nume a intrebat pe un for de discutii, la
http://www.alocanada.com/ro/forum/read.php?f=5&i=30&t=30#reply_30
absolut nevinovat"Ce sansa are un absolvent de istorie in Canada? Exista posibilitatea de a-si face meseria sau este necesara o reprofilare?"

Acum, eu cred ca o reprofilare e buna oricind, oriunde, si e de dorit, si e benefica, pentru ca uneori coordonarea stiintifica, in cazul discutat, daca exista, mi se pare pe ici pe colo intrucitva perfectibila... dar asta e nimic pe linga nota 10 acordata lucrarii.

Universitatea unde s-a luat zece cu aceasta lucrare este UNIVERSITATEA "1 DECEMBRIE 1918" DIN ALBA - IULIA care este "o institutie de invatamant si cercetare stiintifica cu caracter public, de stat, integrata sistemului national de invatamant superior, deschisa cooperarii interuniversitare pe plan national si international"

Adica din banii mei, la urma urmei, se finanteaza astfel de lucruri.
Incredibil.

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.

Face of Death - de Little Eagle la: 26/05/2004 12:43:01
(la: Pedeapsa capitala sau inchisoare pe viata?)
Dragul meu frate,

Te rog sa citesti textul meu la subiectul"Darul Magicianului"de Ovidiu Bufnila,la fel cred ca-mi cunosti parerea cand cu timp in urma am scris textul"Guns'n Roses".
Daca ar fi fost pe vremuri mai acum 300-400 ani as fi luat pistolul sau arcul cu sageti si omorat pe loc pe oricine ar fi facut un mare rau familiei sau poporului meu,nu inainte de a lua scalpuri multe!
Nu uita ca indienii sunt un popor al pacii,nu omoara decat pt. a se apara si nu pe ei in primul rand,ci familia lor si natia lor.
Desigur ca au existat triburi f. dure si in special cele din nordul statului NY si in sud-estul coastei Atlanticului,mai ales Huronii(din tribul Mohawk-Iroquois).
care erau considerati de alte triburi drept Renegades pt. ca erau de partea albilor,francezi sau englezi,in filmul"The Last of the Mohicans"acei indieni rai erau Huroni.
Azi insa traim alte zile.Parerea mea la intrebarile si subiectul tau este ca sunt pt. pedeapsa capitala,s-au facut si se fac multe greseli insa,si multi nevinovati
au fost omorati degeaba!
Trebuie sa fim siguri cu certitudine ca acea persoana este real cea vinovata.

As opta pt. legea de omerta,adica felul sigur si simplu de justitie in stil Cosa Nostra.
La fel faceau si indienii.Si ai dreptate,cei care omoara copii si batrani sunt lasi si trebuie sa plateasca.In 1890 a fost masacrul de la Wounded Knee si am scris despre el traducand exact cuvintele marelui Chief Black Elk care a luptat
impotriva armatei ce pur si simplu a ucis fara distinctie,copii,femei si batrani,au violat fetele si taiat gaturile la copilasi de tita!!!
Ce ai fi facut tu,fiind sotul unei femei violata si ucisa si ti-ai vedea copilasul cu gatul taiat?
Iti spun eu:ti-ai fi pictat trupul in culori de razboi,ai fi luat winchester-ul sau arcul cu sageti si tomahawk-ul,ai fi pus pumnalul intre dinti si ai ucide pe orice soldat in calea ta fara teama de moarte!
Si asa a fost,Black Elk a condus 100 de razboinici impotriva a peste 500 soldati si cavalerie.I-au omorat pe toti.

Este greu sa aplici legea azi,dar si in trecut de multe ori a fost nedreapta.
Te rog sa vezi un film clasic cu Henry Fonda din 1946"The Ox-Bow incident"
in care o posse,grup de cetateni ai unui oras se aduna cam 20 la numar sa prinda 3 hoti si criminali si sa-i spanzure pe loc.Anthony Quinn e in film de asemenea.
Ce se intimpla?Dau peste 3 cowboys si cred ca ei sunt hotii...dar acestia sunt nevinovati si din pacate doar 7 din cei 20 cred ca nu sunt hotii pe care-i cautau,dar numarul mare al celor ce-i cred vinovati e mare si ii spinzura!!!
La plecarea lor dupa ce acesti 3 au murit apare in calea lor seriful orasului
si le spune ca nu ei erau cei 3 criminali si hoti ....ca au omorat 3 oameni nevinovati!
Asta e povestea pe scurt si morala ei,sa vezi totusi filmul,e desigur f. bine jucat.

Astea am avut de spus in cercul nostru.Daca esti dovedit vinovat,trebuie sa platesti,dar sa fim atenti cu cei care nu sunt si credem ca ar fi.

Love&peace,
Ozzy(Little Eagle Who Cries)

ai putea sa-ncepi miseleste de-acolo de unde se ciocnesc abulantele de salvari, sau din triaj, unde se pare ca n-a mai ajuns, sarutand padelele cand ala tzipa ‘cleaar’, “inapoi”, ca la ciuma…Se zguduiau amandoi, ca sinele sub tramvai si viata, tarandu-si picoarele dinapoi, urla ca o catea taiata de tren.(::)


in confuzia asta el-ea, textul de sus imi aminteste vag de-o melodie a lui Nick Cave, ce-obisnuiam s-o ascult, far' de-a ma gandi prea mult la sensuri:

They call me The Wild Rose
But my name is Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name is Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face


On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"

On the second day he came with a single red rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "if I show you the roses will you follow?"


On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

se-nfige-atunci in mine, intrebarea, ca un spin: cate ambulate trebuie sa-i aplici unui mort, sa le putem numi salvari?

fraction de seconde du réel »

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004)
===================================================

Kingdoms of the world in a moment

Aug 5th 2004, From The Economist print edition
http://www.economist.com/cities/displaystory.cfm?story_id=3071607

Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose photographs defined the
20th century, died on August 3rd at the age of 95

ALTHOUGH his name was familiar almost everywhere, far
more so indeed than his work, Henri Cartier-Bresson
himself was not a familiar sight. With his alert blue
eyes and a coloured handkerchief knotted round his
neck, he would wander the streets near his home on
Paris's rue de Rivoli and seldom be recognised. One of
the greatest photographers of the 20th century was
himself rarely photographed.

In his lifetime, he travelled to all corners of the
earth, capturing images of some of the most
extraordinary moments of 20th-century history—the
Spanish civil war, the liberation of Paris after the
second world war and the funeral of Mahatma Gandhi. At
the same time he framed and preserved less famous
moments, elevating them with his genius so that they
somehow seemed to capture the essence of life itself.

His unequalled ability to seize a millisecond in time
was uncanny. In his book “The Decisive Moment”,
published in 1952, he wrote: “It is the simultaneous
recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the
significance of an event as well as a precise
organisation of forms, which give that event its
proper expression.” He was never very interested in
the technology of photography, in the effects that
could be obtained during developing and editing in a
dark room. It was all about the thrill of the chase,
the chance to seize a moment.

The man who first inspired Mr Cartier-Bresson was a
photographer called Martin Munkacsi, whose picture of
naked African boys running into Lake Tanganyika in
1931 persuaded him to take photography seriously. “I
couldn't believe that such a thing could be caught on
camera,” he said, “so I grabbed my Leica and went out
into the street.”

Between 1932 and 1935, he lived rough in Italy, Mexico
and Spain where he took some of his most memorable
images. Back in Paris he worked with Jean Renoir, a
film director, and ended up playing the unlikely role
of an English servant in the director's masterpiece,
“La Règle du Jeu”. He was a prisoner-of-war for three
years, and after the war was one of the founders of
the Magnum agency, a trail-blazing photographers'
co-operative. In 1948 he went on the road again,
mostly to India and China (in time for the fall of
Chiang Kai-shek), in an age when the images of
photojournalists like him filled the pages of picture
magazines that were, in the pre-television era,
hungrily viewed by millions.

Unassuming genius
For the last quarter of a century, Mr Cartier-Bresson
eschewed photography, taking only the occasional
snapshot of friends and family, and turning his
attention to drawing. (He trained originally as a
painter, his early work influenced by his friend, the
surrealist artist Max Ernst.) He maintained that he
scarcely wanted to discuss photography any more. “It's
like when you're divorced”, he said, “and people keep
asking about your former wife. There's something
indecent about it.”

He settled into a quiet life in France—in Paris and in
the small house that he owned for some 30 years in the
Lubéron, a region in the south of the country, to the
east of Avignon. And there he died on Tuesday August
3rd, just less than three weeks away from his 96th
birthday.

Mr Cartier-Bresson always said that to be a great
photographer you had to be unintrusive. “For me,
photography is very much a physical pleasure—it's like
hunting, except that we don't kill.” At the height of
his career he would stalk his subjects, and his quarry
would often be unaware that it had been captured on
film. His desire to remain out of the limelight stayed
with him to the end, including his wish to hold back
the world's photographers from the funeral of one of
the greatest of them.

His funeral was a private affair attended by some 50
family and close friends. Only after it had ended did
the French Ministry of Culture make an official
announcement of his death. And the next day, August
5th, many of his most famous images were splashed
across the front pages of newspapers the world over: a
woman slapping an informer she recognises at a
deportation camp in Dessau in 1945; Muslim women in
Srinagar, Kashmir, praying to the sun as it rises over
the distant Himalayas; and a French family picnicking
by the River Marne in 1938, almost a last pre-war
moment of stillness.

Of Mr Cartier-Bresson's death, President Jacques
Chirac said: “With him, France loses a genius
photographer, a true master, and one of the most
gifted artists of his generation.” But it is not only
France's loss. Mr Cartier-Bresson's fame, which grew
despite his efforts to avoid it, reminds a much wider
world of its persistent admiration for unassuming
genius, and of the dwindling stock of targets for that
admiration.

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

La famille d'Henri Cartier-Bresson, la Fondation Henri
Cartier-Bresson, les photographes et l'équipe de
Magnum Photos ont la tristesse de vous annoncer le
décès d'Henri Cartier-Bresson le 3 Août à 9h30 dans sa
maison du Luberon.Les obsèques ont eu lieu dans la
plus grande intimité. Un hommage sera organisé à sa
mémoire début septembre.

__Premiere at the photokina: Leica Camera AG stages photo
exhibition »24 x 36« to mark 50th anniversary of
Leica rangefinder system

Leica Camera AG, Solms, is showing outstanding pictures of young Leica M photographers at the photokina in Cologne from 28th September to 3rd October 2004. The title of this exhibition, »24 x 36«, alludes to the central importance of the ideal format for 35mm camera film found by Oskar Barnack. The exhibition has been especially organized for this year's photokina, where it will be on view to an international public for the first time. The presentation at the photokina is the start of an exhibition tour. The next stop is the Leica Gallery in Frankfurt, where the photos will be shown for four weeks starting 9th October 2004. The idea behind the exhibition is to mark the three anniversaries of the Leica rangefinder system that the Solms company is celebrating this year: In 1879, 125 years ago, Oskar Barnack, the ingenious inventor of the Leica, was born. 90 years ago, in 1914, he created the basis for his revolutionary camera concept with the Ur-Leica. And in1954, fifty years ago, Ernst Leitz launched the first rangefinder camera, the LEICA M3, on the market.

criteriul "dres" pt mihaelaq - de Belle la: 28/10/2004 16:04:28
(la: De ce simt femeile nevoia sa fie sexy?)
ce-mi place mie cand vine cate cineva ca tine si sare la gatul celorlati fara sa citeasca cu atentie ce s-a scris, ci doar asa din pasiunea de-a baga zazanie.

pai... daca ai fi citit cum trebuie ai fi vazut ca remarca era o impresie de "calatorie de afaceri" a unei foste colege, la new york si washington. tu stai in bucuresti, deci se aplica regulile de-acolo, desi pe vremea cand locuiam la bucuresti sa stii ca eu tot purtam dres si sanda inchisa la varf cand mergeam la servici.

nu e cazul sa relatezi imagini scarboase si rau mirositoare, aici ai aer conditionat acasa, in masina si la birou asa ca..... iar cateodata e asa de racoare la birou ca sunt sigura ca as raci la burta daca n-as purta dres (pe langa faptul ca tinuta de business o cere).

si-adica vrei sa spui ca iarna cand porti mai mult pantaloni si pantofi sau ghete nu te mai epilezi si nu-ti faci pedichiura... ewwwww. eu pana si pe maini ma epilez la fel de des ca vara chiar daca iarna port pulovere sau bluze cu maneca lunga. in definitiv e chestiune de igiena personala nu de cochetarie.

si ca sa nu zici ca am "inventat" regula de-a purta dres, uite cateva link-uri pentru tine. te vad fata cu scoala, asa ca-mi permit sa nu traduc in romaneste caci sunt convinsa ca macar engleza de baza o cunosti.

deci:

http://www.hersmallbusiness.com/etiquette/index.shtml unde zice
Neutral or taupe hosiery - ca parte a traditional business attire
si
Low-heeled shoes or boots – wear stocking - pentru proper business casual

http://career.ucsb.edu/students/busetteq.html unde zice
The Last 12 Inches from the floor to mid-calf should be very well-maintained. That includes shoes that are polished and look like new, even if they're not. It also means stockings that blend with your outfit, rather than detract from it. As George Frazier, columnist for THE BOSTON GLOBE puts it, Want to know if a person is well-dressed? Look down.

http://www.ritchimage.com/quiz.php?a=quiz citeste intrebarea 3 si raspunsul dat in josul paginii care include "Women wearing stockings at all times"

http://www.scp-ph.com/etiquette.html unde scrie
The Women
Females should wear dress suit or slacks suit, comfortable, appropriate blouse, well-maintained shoes with heels, flesh-colored or black nylons, and conservative accessories. The ladies should wear a skirt which is not less than three inches above the knee, dress straps at least one inch wide, purchase suits whose parts can be mixed and matched with other suits, and pull long hair back.
Females should never allow nail polish to chip, use heavy makeup, wear sleeveless dresses/blouses without a blazer or sweater, wear dark stockings if wearing a short-sleeved blouse, and wear see-through or low cut blouses. Females should not use opened-toed shoes or sandals, platform shoes allow undergarment straps to show, show navel, and wear heavy perfume, mini or denim skirts.

si inca un link si ma opresc

A final word of caution: when people look at your feet and shoes, they will notice your socks or your stockings. Make sure you are wearing one or the other.

Articol din "Atlanta Journal" - de (anonim) la: 05/11/2004 02:26:40
(la: Alegerile in USA)
Comentariu de Zell Miller, senator democrat din Georgia. Imi cer scuze, dar mi-e prea lene sa traduc. Enjoy.

I tried to tell you . . .
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.
