Supermodel of the World - de Petre Buzoianu la: 13/01/2005 08:56:02
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
In seara asta am aviut o surpriza intr-adevar placuta.
Sa intimplat ca am participat aici la New York la Finala lui Ford Models, Supermodel of the World. Au fost 44 de finaliste din 44 de tari.
Pe locul 2 cu un contract de $ 150 000 sa clasat o fatuca din Romania, Otilia Aionesei.
Asa ca fotografii din Romania or sa aiba treaba.

Skeeter Davis - The end of the world


Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world,
'Cause you don't love me any more?

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when I lost your love.

I wake up in the morning and I wonder,
Why everything's the same as it was.
I can't understand. No, I can't understand,
How life goes on the way it does.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when you said goodbye.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world.
It ended when you said goodbye.

SCRISOARE DE BUN RAMAS
(Mircea Baniciu, George Tarnea)

Iubito, cata lume intre noi,
Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Si dintr-un ochi de dor necunoscut,
Cate zapezi pe buze ne-au crescut...

Asculta-ma si lasa-ma sa strig,
Mi-e frica de-ntamplare si mie frig
Si nu mai vreau sa stiu pan-la sfarsit
Cine-a iubit frumos, cine-a gresit,

Cine-a facut spre noapte primul pas,
Cine-a plecat din joc, cine-a ramas,

Cine si-a smuls peretii rand pe rand,
Cine s-a-ntors mereu cu ziua-n gand,
Cine a pierdut si cine a castigat
De toate inlantuit sau dezlegat,
Cine a crezut mai mult in celalalt,
Sub cerul prea strain si prea inalt.

Iubito, cata lume intre noi,
Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Si dintr-un ochi de dor necunoscut,
Cate zapezi pe buze ne-au crescut...

Cand am sa uit cum suna glasul tau,
Decat tacerea, ce-mi va fi mai rau
Si cum sa pot sub stele innopta
Cand nu mai simt ce-nseamna umbra ta?

Numaratori de ploi din doi in doi
Iubito, cata lume intre noi.

Breda Photo Fair

2nd International Photo Fair

From the 23rd to 25th of September 2005 Breda Photo Fair will be presenting an international company of photo gallery’s, art photographs, publishers and specialized antiquarian book dealers. Breda Photo Fair forms part of the photo festival Breda Photo 2005.

A great number of cultural activities take place throughout the year under the late gothic arches of “Onze Lieve Vrouwen” church - the most beautiful building of Breda. Breda Photo Fair has chosen this magnificent location to organize the 2nd International Photo Fair, an unique event in the Benelux whereby quality and diversity are of the highest priority. The set-up of the fair is professional and luxurious and is managed by the same organisation as the antique fair “Antiqui Breda”.

Ambitions
The ambitions are high. Breda Photo Fair will develop into an event that can meets the same level as the photo fairs in London, Paris, Cologne and New York.

Interest
The national and international interest in photography is growing. Museums often buy photo collections, the number of private individuals that collect art photos is rising and an increasing number of gallery’s specialise in art photography. Breda Photo Fair will therefore host a number national and international galleries.

Since the development of photography as an art form many devoted publishers and designers have published expensive and rare photo books. Breda Photo Fair will host a selective group of publishers and dealers in rare book.

New talent
Besides national and international photo galleries, independent art photographers are invited to present themselves to the public and the professional photo galleries. Before the application to attend the fair is approved the collection of the photographer is subject to inspection by an independent vetting committee. An additional condition is that the photographer is not represented by a national or international photo gallery.

Breda Photo 2005
Breda Photo Fair forms part of the festival Breda Photo 2005. In 2003 the festival received a lot of national and international publicity.

With the title ‘Imaginary Beauty’ Breda Photo 2005 starts on the 17th of September and closes five weeks later on the 23rd of October. A series of exhibitions in the “Beyerd”, Breda’s Museum and “Lokaal 01” will focus on this theme. Besides that there are many smaller exhibitions spread over several locations within the boundaries of the city.

The heart of the festival is the Photo Hall which offers an experimental program: short exhibitions, lectures, workshops, performances, links with other disciplines and meetings with photographers and photo collectors. As in 2003 an “Amateur Weekend” and “Youth Project” will be held. A close cooperation is established with the photo museum in Rotterdam and Antwerp. Information is available at www.bredaphoto.nl .

Committee to Protect Journalists - de Dinu Lazar la: 06/05/2004 23:51:38

NEWS
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.

the ways of leaving - de Little Eagle la: 18/05/2004 23:20:15
(la: Farewell brothers and sisters)
Dear Brother Destin(a good name,Great Spirit Wakan Tanka ti l-a dat fara sa stii),

Am gandit in acest weekend trecut sa mai stau o vreme cu voi toti si sa mai fumam putin tobacco,dar am incalcat legea.Legea noastra.Peste acest weekend trecut am gandit ca mai pot ramane dar nu o pot face, azi si ieri am scris ultimele texte si ...Destin-ul a ales pe tine sa fii ultimul care va primi ultimul meu text,e scris asa si este menit sa fie asa,the eagle flies free my brother,you can't stop his wings...

Azi ,si este noapte cu stele,ele mi-au vorbit,a fost vant putin si cateva picaturi de ploaie,am stat in gradina si gandit la Marele Spirit,mi-a vorbit si am plans din nou,lacrimi si picaturi de ploaie pe obrajii mei.
Mi-a spus prin Creatia toata ca trebuie sa plec si tu esti ultimul WARRIOR care va purta cuvantul LUI prin mine.

Imi pare sincer rau,toti din cercul cafenelei imi sunteti mai mult decat dragi,NU va imaginati nici in vise cat de mult va iubesc pe toti deopotriva,imi sunteti frati si surori si mereu ma voi gandi cu dragoste la voi toti.

M-ati injurat,m-ati indragit,ori m-ati considerat un excentric,cine sunt eu sa trag concluzii?Ceea ce stiu e ca va iubesc si voi fi in spirit mereu cu voi.
O spun cu sinceritate,si tie draga Frate iti multumesc din suflet pentru cuvintele tale.

A venit timpul sa plec,va iubesc mult si veti fi mereu cu mine in inima,spirit si suflet.Si asta e ,fiti siguri,o certitudine.

Multumesc Daniel pentru tot si la fel Admin.Niciodata nu am fost impotriva voastra si a nimanui,fiti bravi in viata si sa stiti ca fara sa cunoasteti cu totii,fiecare din voi are in par pene de pace si razboi,este legea.
Wakan Tanka este cu voi in voi si in jurul vostru,NU sunteti separati de EL.

Nu esti idealist si visator daca vei crede in dragoste,iubire si pace.Vei intelege sa devii intelept si sa te vezi pe tine in oricine si in toata Creatia.
Imaginati-va ca Bufallow Cow Woman(Creatia toata)este cea mai frumoasa femeie de pe glob!Oare nu veti fi indragostiti de ea?Oare nu vreti s-o protejati si s-o iubiti,sa o aparati chiar sfidand moartea?

Astea mi-au fost cuvintele de incheiere.

Love&peace sisters and brothers,
may the Great Spirit be with you all the time.
Ozzy(Little eagle who cries)
..........................................................................................................................
'If the white man wants to live in peace with the indian,he can live in peace.Treat all men and women alike.Give them all the same law.Give them all an even chance to live and grow.
All we were made by the same Great Spirit Chief.We are all sisters and brothers.The earth is the mother of all people and nations in the world,all we should have equal rights upon it.
If we are all poor is because we are honest."

Great Chief Joseph(Nez perce-iroquois)
...........................................................................................................................
Va iubesc mult,imi sunteti in sange.Acum sunt pictat in culorile mele de alb si negru si am tipat afara in natura cantecul meu,adio dragi prieteni de suflet,surioare si frati,ne vom revedea in alta viata.
Adio Destin,poate faci ca mesajul meu ultim sa ajunga la toti,eu ma voi de-conecta acum.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Luna asta n-a fost mult de lucru pt. mine asa e vara,slow dar tot castig bine.
De aceea am acest timp liber sa scriu si trag de el pana nu vine marea furtuna cu sep....de comenzi.
Acum exact 1 sapt. am fost la un party(ziua de nastere a agentului meu,B.J)
am fost cam 60-70 persoane invitati,el are o mansion in Montclair(N.J)cu 7 dormitoare,coloane la intrare,etc.om cu banet.Si cu mari relatii....

Erau manechine de mode,colegii mei de arta si prieteni totodata.B.J.si Hildy(sotia lui)au primul copil,5 luni un baietel f. sucar deja.Ei sunt la 31 ani ca varsta si vor mai avea altul anul ce vine.

Si acum,siropul si salt&pepper to the story,I can't fuckn'heeere you...raise your hands for God's sake,c'mon,lets shake the earth now....
Domne si eu credeam ca sunt un old fart si fetele nu se mai uita la mine....
3 gagicute de 20-25 ani au vrut sa aiba sex cu mine acolo!!!!Una ma alerga si zicea,macar un blow job,alta ma pipaia la cur si ma invita sa merg afara in boscheti,alta zicea ca sa mergem la W.C.si erau...good looking!Una era manechin de mode la ELLE magazine si era asa de frumoasa ca mureai!!!!
Dar le stiu deja...plastic women!
Sex pe moment si maine nu le mai vezi .Am ...baut si m-am facut praf!!!!!

Gagicile,STIAU ca-s casatorit,au vorbit cu Marilyn si totusi se dadeau la mine ...va dati seama ca as fi putut avea ...3 femei intr-o seara?Si AM REFUZAT,s-au sucarit pe mine,dar le aratam cu degetul pe Marilyn si le ziceam:That's my girl!
In trecut....ohhh boy,sa nu credeti ca nu am visat la aceste fete,dar sunt prea loial fetei mele sa o insel si desigur i-am spus totul!Mai era un rusnac din Moscow care era homosexual si ma atingea pe mana mai mereu si imi facea avansuri sa -mi dea un blow job......l-am refuzat si pe el.

Domne,am eu 49 ani pe 3 Sep.ce vine,am fire albe in parul lung,si desigur port ochelarii stil Ozzy,trimisi de Sharon,4 perechi,am codita la par si tot atrag fete .....

Lumea acolo la party credea ca-s un star!Si oare nu sunt?
A doua zi,merg sa fac piata la supermarket(shoprite)si o fetita de 16 ani ce lucreaza vara in vacanta sa faca extra cash(multi elevi de liceu fac asta aici) si era cashier(la cassa)cade pe jos cand ma vede(frumusica foc)si imi zice ca la 2PM iese din serviciu si ca daca vreau...o pot astepta la intrare...vede ca am VERIGHETA pe deget si totusi vrea sex cu mine.Imi poate fi copil for God's sake si as intra si in cacat fiind minora...domne,nu stiu...fetele de azi,sunt altfel dar nu prea mult schimbate de cele ce am cunoscut in tineretea mea,in Ro. sau USA.

Deci orice fac ,vreau sa traiesc o viata reclusiva si calma acum,tot dau peste aventuri aiurite mereu.Azi ..pare o zi calma....oare?Sper!
Fug de lume dar lumea ma ajunge din urma si ma prinde.
Marti merg la Dr. familiei ca de obicei,pt. consult total si la fiecare 3 luni fac asta...am probleme mari cu sanatatea...m-am refacut mult dar mi-au trebuit 4-5 ani sa ajung la asta.

Cu 9 sapt. in urma insa,asa cum stiti,iar m-am apucat de bautura si drugs(only cocaine...parca nu-i de ajuns!!!) dupa o pauza de multi ani...e greu sa te lasi domne...f. greu!!!
M-am lasat iar de ele si de fumat tigari(marijuana la fel)De fapt zace o gramada de marijuana in frigider(e locul unde o mentii bine,pt. cine vrea sa stie)in cutie de metal si NU m-am atins de ea!marilyn mai fumeaza uneori la pipa,nu joint(adica rulata la hartie).Cati din voi n-au fumat macar odata?C'mon,don't gimme the bullshit!!!

Adica...."I smoked but not inhale"?Who are you foolin'maan?

In fine,deci nu mai beau nu mai fumez nimic,nu mai pun nimic in nas!Dar e greu sa te faci bine si Dr. DeNoya a gasit ca-s okay cu inima(ca tensiune...o aveam asa de mare ca omu'se mira ca mai traiesc....)am chiar aparat in casa de masurat,electric si zilnic ma controlez.

La fel si cu ficatu',colesterolul,eram pe duca dar cred ca sunt si azi....I cheated death cred 7 times....nu prea cred eu c-o s-o mai pacalesc....dar asta-i viata!Odata tre sa si mori,nu?
Sper sa apuc sa scriu destule in 2-3 ani si daca nu apuc,din nou,cer la toti ce citesc astea sa pastreze ce am scris pana acum,mai ales admin si Daniel.

In fine,deci remember,life is beautiful,live it to the fullest,traiaste clipa oricare ar fi ea.
Si deci acum Lila(Marilyn si sa stiti ca asa o numesc in intimitate),e in gradina cu Pooghee(pisica femela de 3 ani)si curand se va duce la maica-sa pt. 2 ore.
Bebitsa,motanul de 13 ani e in casa si doarme la picioarele mele.

Azi am si gatit(eu sunt bucatarul....barbatii sunt cei mai buni,cu mici exceptii femeile,nu ma luati la pietre ci sarutati-ma),ieri am mers la Jason,un f. bun amic grec(28 ani)ce e proprietar la un restaurant pescaresc,taica-su Pete l-a pus sa fie boss.Saptamanal merg sa cumpar peste proaspat(orice vreau)
si mereu imi da in plus(pe gratis)ori sardele ,nu la cutie ci crude,masline
pesti micuti de prajit in faina sau malai,scalops sau clams fresh!

Toti,oameni colosal de draguti si prietenosi si saritori.II dau si eu uneori o sticla de vin francez sau italian si chiar romanesc...pe aici exista unul rosu(Merlot si Sauvignon) si alb(Chardonais)numit...VAMPIRE,ati auzit de el?E f. bun si cheap,cam 7 $ sticla.

Azi ,mai tarziu iar la olimpiada si revedem ....Apocalypse Now,avem o mare colectie cu Marlon...I really loved so much that man....!!!!!!!!Si ca om dar ca actor...poate fi egalat?
De Niro,Pacino si cati altii...daca ei au zis ca Marlon IS GOD(in actorie)atunci au sau nu dreptate?

Sex am avut ieri si miercuri trecuta deci cam asta e ,de 2 ori pe sapt. sex,poate nu mai este de aproape 2 ore si a ajuns la 30 min. dar la 49 ani cati avem amandoi,nu-i chiar o rusine....la inceput....Lila trebuia sa se duca la Dr. ginecologic pt. ca avea cistita si dureri si i-a zis ca prea mult sex nu-i bine....e adevarat!Si NU-s deloc John Holmes,I-m average!!!Nu conteaza marimea si lungimea ci ce faci cu ea.
Ala a avut cam 10000 femei,eu doar poate 90...si toate le-am facut fericite.
Bill Wyman(a auzit cineva de el?Basistul de la Rolling Stones?A auzit cineva de Stones?formula veche inca din anii 60,)a avut cam 1000 femei in viata lui....sunt MIC in comparatie cu el sau Holmes.

Dar am avut si eu talentele mele si femeile fericite avand sex cu mine.
In fine.Despre sex altadata.
Curand spre mijlocul lui sept. mergem cu frate-meu de sange Vern(indian Navajo)sotia lui(Vern are 44 ani,par lung pana la brau in coada si e artist plastic f. bun si vinde pictura lui ce o face in traditia indiana...eu i-am dat aceasta sugestie cu 16 ani in urma),deci cu ei si altii cherokee,comanchees,Lakota,Iroquois,shoshonees,ne vom aduna la un Sundance (un ceremonial de rugaciuni si dorinta de LOVE&PEACE pt. intreaga lume)in upstate N.Y.

The elders se vor ruga si pt. mine,si sa stiti ca Dr. nu stiu nimic....ei stiu pastile...indianul stie plante si ierburi si rugaciuni la Wakan Tanka(Great Spirit of the world).
NU oricine e primit in randurile lor.Despre ei alta data,am scris destule acum la chapter 1.

Revin candva,don't forget...
LOVE&PEACE

HP Declare British National Photo Album a Success
HP Press Release 01/09/04

Britain's first National Photo Album unearths hidden photographic treasures

HP is pleased to announce the initial success of the National Photo Album, one of the most ambitious public archiving projects in recent history. Having urged the nation to dust off its old photograph albums and rummage through its attics, HP has been astonished to see people react so positively.

With over 5,000 images already submitted and more than 300,000 hits in the first two months, The National Photo Album has been embraced by the public. The search has uncovered some hidden gems from the photo albums of members of the public, such as:

- The enchanting image of Big Ben taken during the strikes in the 1970s, when fuel was at a premium and the spot lights had to be switched off
- A chance meeting with George Best relaxing on holiday in Majorca in 1972
- Young twins working a wooden washing machine in 1939
- A boxing match between sailors, to entertain the troops on HMS Emperor of India in 1915



"We expected a good response, but I don't think we ever imagined that people would react in such a positive manner. The HP National Photo Album is quickly turning into the vital photographic resource we always hoped it would. And there's no doubt that The Daily Mirror has contributed enormously to our success as we supplied its 'Pic of the Week' for almost two months," said Peter Urey, marketing and category manager for HP's Imaging and Printing Group. "No one else is providing a photographic resource which contains pictures solely taken by everyday people and we believed that this difference would offer a 'back stage pass' to our history, now we know for sure that it does."

The aim of The National Photo Album was to search for images of individuals, families, workplaces, events, outings, cities, towns and villages, all accompanied with the story behind each picture; anything which revealed something of the way Britain has worked, played, lived and loved over the past two hundred years. The results have been fascinating with a hugely varied collection of pictures and stories.

"The HP National Photo Album is an excellent incentive to keep British History alive," said one of the National Photo Album's visitors. "It's always great to be able to see other people's pictures of years, events and times gone by and I'm certain that as the word spreads, it will be a much visited site."

"We were hoping for pictures which would immediately provoke attention such as pictures of Elvis Presley's only visit to the UK, but what we have found is that we have received a far more interesting selection of stories," added Urey. "When you read a story about a 10 year old boy, with numerous siblings who was the only bread winner in his family, you realise the importance of these pictures as historical materials."

The HP National Photo Album is free to access at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk Anyone wanting to contribute to the archive can offer their pictures for consideration in one of two ways.

- Option 1: Upload images directly onto the archive at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk by following simple step by step instructions.
- Option 2: Submit entries via post to HP National Photo Album, 31 St. Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA where they will be vetted and uploaded by experts.


*All images must be accompanied by a suitably sized self-addressed envelope. Every effort will be made to return the images in good order but HP cannot be held liable for damaged or lost photographs.

HP has a unique history and expertise in digital imaging. Currently it is assisting museums and art galleries around the world including the UK's National Gallery, in digitising their collections to ensure that the world's most important images are captured for posterity. Now it is turning its attention to the treasure trove of photographs that lie gathering dust in the nation's attics.

By digitising and storing these valuable images HP is aiming to ensure that this valuable photographic inheritance is not lost and can be shared with millions of people. Suitable pictures will be added to the HP National Photo Album which will be a searchable online database of images that can be accessed and downloaded for free.

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

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

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Thank you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Imi cer scuze, am avut o zi lunga, si imi este foarte lene ca sa traduc. Enjoy, and think about it!


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.
