(la: PARFUMURI)
unul din exclusivele Chanel, alea reeditate dupa cele originale din anii '20.
gen "La Pausa" sau "Cuir de russie".


nu le stiu, cred ca tre´ sa ma duc la un magazin mai exclusiv, la parfumeriile obisnuite nu le au. le-ai mirosit, cum e cuir de russie?

uite ce descriere am gasit :)

If perfume allows the imagination to paint vivid pictures, Cuir de Russie is a fragrance that seems to embody a whole story. From the shimmering dry aldehydic top to the warm leathery base, it unveils one image after another. One can almost envision an elegant woman reaching into a black leather handbag, her hand rummaging through its contents: red lipstick, powder compact exuding an aroma of violets, a silver cigarette case… The owner of the fragrant handbag also seems to be fond of listening to jazz in smoky clubs since Cuir de Russie has an alluring note redolent of soft tobacco pervading its leathery smoothness. It is indeed a scent of the fine handbag and the warm skin of its beautiful owner.

It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.

Mai oameni buni, mai lasati biblia si coranul in pace...cum nu are cineva un argument, hopa la cartile sfinte. Sunt curios daca aceia care le invoca atat de asiduu ca litera a unei judecati divine (altminteri refuzate fiintei umane de cartile insesi) le aplica lor insilor, in viata de zi cu zi.
Crestinii au ales demult credinta ca fiind o optiune personala, si nu ca temei de aruncat cu pietre.
Cine doreste sa isi faca din religie un cod integral de viata (moral, social, politic) ar fi bine sa faca un 'upgrade' la Islamism.

the Passion of the Christ de Mel Gibson: O marturie de credinta - de SB_one la: 18/04/2004 14:10:33
(la: Filmul "The Passion of the Christ" si antisemitismul)
the Passion of the Christ de Mel Gibson: O marturie de credinta

Pr. Claudiu Bãrbut

Pe data de 15 martie 2004, actorul Jim Caviezel, care a avut rolul principal în filmului The Passion of the Christ a lui Mel Gibson, a fost primit de cãtre Sfântul Parinte. Seara, actorul a dorit sã prezinte el insuºi filmul intregii Curii Romane prezente in aula amfiteatrului Regina Apostolorum al Ateneului Pontifical. Am avut marea ocazie sã vãd acest film în avanpremierã ºi sã stau de vorbã cu actorul Jim Caviezel la sfârºitul proiecþiei. A fost o experienþa extraordinarã pe care aº dori s-o împãrtãºesc în aceste câteva rânduri.

Jim Caviezel:

“Interpretarea rolului lui Isus m-a ajutat sa-L cunosc mai bine pe Mantuitorul”
“Nu m-am gandit niciodata de ce, cand eram mic, imi placea mult sportul, in mod special baschetul. Am crezut, pana nu de mult, ca voi ajunge un bun atlel. Cand eram adolescent, in perioada cautarilor, m-am dus la tatal meu si i-am spus: 'Cred ca Domnul ma chiama sa fac un lucru deosebit in viata, insa nu descopar inca ce anume trebuie sa fac. Simt ca ma chiama, insa nu stiu in ce directie sa merg'. Tatal meu mi-a raspuns: 'Poate te chiama sa fii preot'. Anii care au urmat nu au confirmat cuvintele tatalui meu, insa crescand, parintii m-au ajutat sa descopar - in Biserica Romano-Catolica - darul credintei in Isus. Cu anii am descoperit ºi calitati proprii, in mod special talentul de a intepreta. Am inceput sa ma pregatesc pentru a fi actor, totul mergea fantastic, am crescut din toate punctele de vede si am ajuns la Hollywood unde...reputatie, faima si glorie (pamanteasca).
Intr-o zi primesc un telefon de la managerul lui Mel Gibson: 'Sunteti cautat de Gibson pentru a interpreta un rol in care este esential sa stiti sa faceti Surf '. Am acceptat si m-am intalnit cu Mel Gibson…In primele minute regizorul mi-a vorbit despre surf si apoi m-a întrebat daca eu cred in Dumnezeu si ce cred eu despre Patimirea lui Cristos. Imediat mi-am dat seama ca surf-ul nu avea nici o legatura. Era numai un motiv. I-am raspuns: Vrei sa fac rolul lui Isus? El nu mi-a spus nimic si mi-a lasat timp de gandire pana a doua zi.
Primesc un telefon a doua zi de la el. 'Cine e?' 'Mel', raspunde. 'Mel si mai cum?' intreb. 'Mel...Cross'. 'In acest caz eu sunt Isus Cristos', am raspuns. Mel a inceput sa-mi spuna ca acest rol este dificil, incomod, ca imi pot ruina cariera de actor, ca o sa fiu luat in ras de colegii mei actori de la Hollywood. A incercat sa ma convinga sa nu accept acest rol, însa am decis contrariul.
Astfel am descoperit ca sporturile pe care le-am facut, evolutia pe care am avut-o din punct de vedere uman si artistic au avut un anume scop: acela de a putea interpreta acest rol crucial din viata mea. Nu a fost usor: chiar din punct de vedere fizic a fost un rol extenuant. Mi-am amintit ca Mel imi povestea ca a avut momente dificile in viata, odata ajungand chiar in pragul sinuciderii, insa credinta in Isus l-a salvat. Atunci a promis Domnului ca va face un film pentru ca el, si poate si altii de langa el, sa poata pretui marele dar al Mantuirii.”

Experienta personala de intalnire cu Jim Caviezel

-         Acest film te-a ajutat sa cresti in credinta? l-am intrebat la sfarsitul filmului pe Jim Caviezel. Iata ce mi-a raspuns:

-Da, si cred ca foarte mult. Am avut o ocazie privilegiata de a ma apropia de cuvantul lui Isus, de a avea o comuniune speciala cu El. Cand am inceput filmarile mi-am dat seama ca fiecare minut insemna o noua sansa de a ma apropia de Mantuitorul. Am inceput sa studiez latina si aramaica. Nu eram pregatit si stiam ca am nevoie de ajutorul Sau ca sa-l pot face cunoscut. Prietenii mei preoti m-au ajutat sa inteleg si sa ma rog. Stiam ca nu as fi putut sa intereptez acest rol fara ajutorul lui Isus si al Mamei sale Sfinte. Intrarea in comuniune cu Dumnezeu m-a ajutat sa trec bariere umane pe care nu credeam ca sunt capabil sa le depasesc: frigul pana la congelare, biciurea si oboseala fizica pana la extenuare. In zilele in care am filmat momentul crucificarii, a trebuit sa raman pe cruce ore intregi. Datorita frigului si a pozitiei, nu eram capabil sa mananc. Au fost zile in care m-am hranit numai cu Trupul Domnului, dimineata, la Sfanta Liturghie. I-am cerut in acele momente, precum si in toate zilele cat au durat filmarile, sa ma ajute sa-l comunic lumii pe El si nu pe mine ca protagonist

-         Astazi a fost o zi speciala pentru tine?

- Absolut. Dimineata am avut marea onoare de a-l intalni pe Sfantul Parinte si de a-i multumi pentru tot ceea ce face. I-am marturisit ca pentru mine el a fost un model de curaj care mi-a dat forta in momentele dificile. Ma aflu in acesta aula in fata multor cardinali, episcopi, preoti si surori si sunt emotionat. Va multumesc pentru tot ceea ce faceti, pentru ca v-ati oferit viata Domnului, pentru marturia voastra de credinta.
Voi sunteti eroii mei si veti ramane astfel pentru totdeauna in sufletul meu. Rugati-va pentru mine.

Filmul

In timp ce Jim Caviezel urca scarile amfiteatrului, pe ecranul panoramic incepea proiectia filmului. Umbra actorului proiectata pe ecran disparea cu fiecare treapta urcata, pentru a da spatiu unicului portagonist al acestui film: Isus Cristos.
Muzica, atmosfera apasatoare, imaginea Mantuitorului, suferinta de pe fata sa ne-a proiectat in cateva secunde in realitatea din Getsemani.
Ritmul imaginilor, putinele cuvintel rostite in limba aramaica ne-a predispus spre o profunda meditatie.
Fiecare detaliu devine un element important in realizarea simfoniei Mantuirii, stiind bine noi toti ca ultima parte a acestei simfonii nu este Crucea si Invierea.
Toate personajele traiesc momentul patimii intr-o continua tensiune care se dovedeste a fi benefica pentru unii, iar pentru altii un cosmar.
Maria,intepretata de actrita romanca de origine evreiasca Maia Morgenstern, este tot timpul alaturi de fiul sau pe drumul Clavarului. Ea reprezinta imaginea durerii dar si a bucuriei de a fi mama. Gesturile sublime si pline de gingasie din copilaria si adolescenta lui Isus cristalizeaza dragostea de mama si forta credintei. Imi amintesc cu placere de cuvintele lui Jim Caviezel care, afland ca sunt un preot din Romania mi-a spus: “Maia Morgenstein este si ea romanca. O femeie extraodinara si o actrita deosebita. A fost pentru mine un privilegiu s-o cunosc si sa pot interpreta Patimirea lui Isus langa o persoana din poporul lui Isus, dar dintr-o cultura a Europei rasaritene. A interpretat rolul Mariei sublim.”
Maria Magdalena, intepretata de Monica Belluci, participa alaturi de Mama lui Isus la drama Calvarului.
Titlul filmului ne arata intentia autorului de a se concentra mai mult asupra Patimirii, asupra misterului Mantutirii noastre prin cruce, insa mesajul este clar: acela al vietii si sperantei. Sangele preotios a lui Cristos varsat in curtea lui Pontiu Pilat la biciure, pe drumul Clavarului ºi pe Cruce este pretul mantuirii noastre.
Giulgiul in care era infasurat Mantuitorul se goleste si trupul sau se ridica de la pamant pentru a lua locul la drepta Tatalui. Iar fetele tuturor celor care au sperat in El se insenineaza, se umplu de lumina, de pace si de viata.

Concluzie

The Passion of the Christ vizionat cu ochii credintei te patrunde in profundul sufletului, te face sa constientizezi marele dar al mantuirii dat noua prin Cristos, stimulandu-te sa meditezi asupra vietii tale, asupra lucrurilor realizate pana acum si a celor pe care trebuie sa le infaptuiesti, in lumina marelui dar al credintei primite la botez. Este o ocazie care ni se ofera si prin care noi putem sa ne apropiem mai mult de realitatea credintei noastre, ocazie la care noi putem sa raspundem cu un act de credinta, facand viata nostra asemeni cu cea a lui Cristos.

" When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom,let it be
Let it be,let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom,let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer,let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer,let it be
Let it be,let it be,yeah
There will be an answer,let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,let it be,
Let it be,let it be,
Whisper words of music,let it be."

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.

Jimi a murit pe 18 Sep.1970....eram in anul 1 de liceu si toti din clasa mea am refuzat sa mergem la scoala in acea zi,eram 34,am invadat o berarie si stat in liniste si baut pt. Jimi.
Asa eram pe atunci noi.Azi doar 4-6 au ramas in Romania....interesant nu?
restul am plecat care pe unde ne-a chemat soarta,pana in 1982,unii in Franta,altii in USa,unii in Germania,altii in Israel,Anglia.

Am scris acest faimos cantec al lui Jimi pt. ca sunt impotriva razboiului de orice fel si de oriunde.
El a fost impotriva razboiului.Mama lui Jimi cat si bunica lui au fost din natia de indieni Cherokee,bunica lui a plecat insa in Canada.Jimi a trait mai mult cu ea
pt. ca parintii lui au divortat cand era mic.A invatat acel wisdom indian de la bunica lui.
Bunica lui i-a spus ca va avea o viata scurta....dar in ultimii 6 ani din viata va deveni mare in toata lumea si asa a fost sa fie....NIMENI in istoria muzicii de la anii 60 incoace,va putea egala geniul lui.

Din primul lui grup(in London)"Jimi Hendrix Experience",azi toti au decedat...
recent,in anul asta Mitch Mitchell si Noel Redding.

Mereu l-am iubit pe Jimi si muzica lui.

The number of the beast/Iron Maiden 1986 - de Little Eagle la: 22/06/2004 22:52:54
(la: Existenta Diavolului)
"Woe to you o earth and sea
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short.
Let he who hath understanding
and reckon the number of the beast
for it is a human number
it's number is six hundred and sixty six.

I left alone,my mind was blank
I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind,
what did I see can I believe that what I saw
that night was real and not just fantasy.

Just what I saw in my old dreams were they
reflections of my warped mind staring back at me,
'cos in my dreams it's always there the evil face that twists my mind
and brings me to despair.

The night was black,was no use holding back
'cos I just had to see was someone watching me
in the mist dark figures move and twist
was all this for real or some kind of hell...

666 the number of the beast
hell and fire was spawned to be released
torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
as they start to cry hands held to the sky.

In the night the fires are burning bright
the ritual has begun ,Satan's work is done
666 the number of the beast
sacrifice is going on tonight.

This can't go on,I must inform the law
can this still be real or some crazy dream
but I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes
they seem to mesmerise me...can't avoid their eyes...

666 the number of the beast
666 the one for you and me
I'm coming back I will return
and I'll posses your body and I'll make you burn,
I have the fire,I have the force,
I have the power to make evil take its course..."

British band Iron Maiden.

Love&peace,

Re: Freelance Work

Date: 08-04-04



I’ve got some great news to share with you! I wanted to inform you of the upcoming launch of 7 Magazine (se7enMag,com) Sept 1st, 2004. HOW EXCITING!! I am writing you to express interest in your photography. I recently saw some of your work and I must confess, I was impressed and intrigued by your photos.



Let me briefly tell you about our magazine. 7 Magazine is a monthly national online publication that is expected to reach more than 100,000 readers across the country in the next few months alone. 7 Magazine features the latest trends in fashion, celebrities, music, art, health, technology, and travel.



Since we’re in the process of launching, we are looking for experienced photographers to submit their photo stories (anywhere from 6-12 photos will work). High resolution is not needed, since 7 Magazine is starting as an online magazine for the 1st year. I am essentially looking for shoots that have been shot already, that you want published. Although you will not be paid for your work, you can count on receiving plenty of exposure.



If you’re interested in this opportunity, please e-mail me. I look forward to working with you- and your contributions to this magazine. It’s going to be amazing! The ideas, and the concepts are super!! J

Sincerely,

Amanda Nelson

Publisher

IN MEMORY OF PETRE BUZOIANU - de Adela Adriana Moscu la: 06/03/2005 20:44:21
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
IN MEMORY OF PETRE BUZOIANU

With such a deep sadness I force myself to stay at this computer so that I may invite all of you who knew the talented Romanian-American GlamourModels Photographer (www.photofashion.net-founder of EXCES Magazine), Peter Buzoianu, to take a moment from your busy lives and pray for his soul, which departed from his body on Monday, February 21, 2005 in Italy due to a heart attack. He and his Romanian lovely wife Andreea Angelescu, as well a talented and beautiful photographer and ex-model and dancer, were in Italy during a photography engagement. I had the brief pleasure of getting to know Peter through the conversation club that takes place at www.cafeneaua.com, where I posted a few of my poems just a few months ago. We exchanged a few e-mails, and a lovely phone conversation that touched my soul in such a deep and sublime way. With his pleasant timber voice, in such an engaging, honest and charming manner he talked with me about his background, about his family and his artistic aspirations and dreams. I was planning to have him take a picture of me for the book of poetry that I am working on, and wish to publish as soon as possible. This morning Sunday March 6, 2005 around 11:00 AM I called him to make arrangements for a photography session with him. To my horrible shock at the other end of the line his wife told me: “ I don’t know how to tell you this but Peter died two weeks ago!” She was still in Italy at the moment but will be arriving in New York tomorrow. Let’s keep her and the rest of the family, loved ones, and friends as well in divine light and prayers so that they may overcome this tragic loss. What else can I say now after a good one hour cry? That I wish I met Peter in person to be touched by his great talent and personality, that I wish I had prioritized my time in a wiser way, that I could have called him and had more wonderful conversations that inspired me as an artist? I thank God that at least I told him over the phone how charming, and adorable he was. I will always remember him as a pleasant, friendly, honest, sensitive artist, with a wonderful sense of humor who loved his wife, family, friends, poeple, life, and art. Wherever you are Peter please know that I love you and pray for your soul. It is so terrible that we were not able to become better friends and I hope that your wife will have me in hers, and that I can be of a healing presence for her. The gift that you left for me, Peter, is the lesson to live in the moment and make more time for art and for my dreams. I miss you...most likely so many do...You made us proud of your photography work! May God bless you now, and always! ADELA-ADRIANA MOSCU

NATIONAL UNION OF JOURNALISTS DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY COSTS GUIDE - de Dinu Lazar la: 29/03/2005 14:07:32
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The seismic transformation from film to digital has left both clients and photographers alike unsure how and what to charge for photographs taken and supplied digitally.

The issue was clear when film was the norm, and during the recent transition period of shooting film but delivering a digital scan. Clients would pay for film costs and processing, and would receive processed scans as an additional service, paying scanning fees either to the photographer or to a processing lab.

In the photographer's case these fees went wholly or partially towards the additional expenses incurred in digital production - simply put, the costs of the computer, monitor, calibration equipment, scanner and photo-processing software (Photoshop), investment in acquiring the necessary skills, and of course the additional labour time now spent after each job, scanning individual film into 'ready to use' RGB digital files.

Now however, film, ‘wet’ processing and the presentation of prints, transparencies or even scans from film is steadily fading.

Digital capture is now the norm in the overwhelming degree of cases - but the 'virtual' nature of digital images has left some clients thinking there are no longer any costs to pay beyond the photographer's initial commission fee.

And many photographers who are in no doubt about the additional costs they still have to bear, charge for those costs in ways that confuse not only their clients but also themselves.

So what should photographers be charging for, and why?

They no longer have to pay for film & processing, so some would argue, neither should their clients.

But photographers still have to supply their intellectual property - photographs - in a material form. They do so in the form of processed digital image files*, digitally transmitted to clients or delivered on digital media (CD, DVD).

That is the service photographers now provide & must charge their clients for - their costs of capturing, processing, transmitting and presenting the images on digital media to clients.

This service requires the appropriate equipment, skills and labour time, and so fees must be levied to clients (in the same way as a film scanning fee) that goes wholly or partially towards the additional expenses incurred in digital production.

So perhaps the question would be better re-phrased as follows: What services do clients require, and what should they pay?

Some clients say they require nothing more than the files straight from the camera (sometimes the entire contents of the camera card) and claim they should pay no more than the commission fee itself, by asserting that these ‘digits’ cost the photographer nothing, and should therefore not be charged to the client.

Firstly, this is not true.

In order to produce digital images, the photographer has to meet the huge capital cost of professional digital cameras, which cost 3-4 times more than film cameras, and require replacement in less than half the time of their film equivalents (The life span of professional digital cameras is currently about two years before replacement, whereas film cameras could last a decade or more).

Secondly, the frequent dismissal of these capital costs on the grounds that they save photographers money in film and lab bills is not true either.

The photographer used to pass these film/lab production charges directly on to the client IN ADDITION to the commission fee, so nothing is being saved by the photographer, who is now facing the extra costs of producing digital images, which now, as then, has to be met one way or another by the client.

The ‘straight from the camera’ supply of digital files is deeply unsatisfactory for photographers and clients, and the practice of handing over the entire contents of a camera card for the commission fee - commonly referred to in justly unflattering terms as a 'Dump and Run' - cannot be endorsed or encouraged by the NUJ.

The client gets unedited digital files, including all the under and overexposed frames, the unsharp frames and all the "indecisive" moments.
Moreover, digital files that are correctly exposed but otherwise uncorrected or processed in imaging software like Photoshop rarely match the quality of original prints or transparencies, or the scans photographers used to make from them.

It also provides no way of tracking image usage, due to the amount of files handed over, lack of captions or photographer credit on each file, and with widespread ignorance about the licensing of images**, constitutes a virtually 'Royalty Free' handover of images from the photographer without appropriate payment.

(This should be distinguished from the legitimate professional need for unprocessed files on some occasions – for example a newspaper requiring a picture wired on a very tight deadline. However, the photographer should in these cases still provide AN EDIT of their shoot, which should be captioned accordingly with copyright details – not the whole card, and licensing usage should always be confirmed beforehand).

Photographers take pride in providing an edited selection of colour corrected, sharpened & captioned photographs - in short, working professionally - the way they always have, by presenting an edited, processed, captioned set of prints, transparencies and now...digital images.

So professionally prepared files are the best way of supplying photographs for both photographer and client - they are after all exactly what the client previously received in the form of prints, transparencies or scans from film.

And charging for the production of professional files is also the most appropriate way of meeting digital costs. They can either be charged for individually, or in bulk at an hourly rate if appropriate.

It should be remembered here that in addition to meeting the capital costs of digital cameras, and charging for extra labour time, the photographer has to meet the costs of running a 'digital darkroom'. These include the capital cost of computers that become obsolete almost as fast as the cameras, monitors and software.

In addition photographers charge for digital delivery, either by burning to CD/DVD, or by digital transmission, and also digital archiving on a hard drive or storable media.

Here then is a guide to digital charges recommended by the NUJ, to create a transparent and open system that fairly rewards photographers for both their time and expertise, as well as one that informs buyers of photography what they should expect for their money.

The guide works through a typical digital photographer’s workflow – from digital capture through to the presentation of processed files.

Digital or inkjet contact sheets - £20.00 per contact sheet.

Processed digital image file
(or scan from film) - £15.00 per file.

Bulk processing of digital files - £100.00 per hour for orders over 7 files (minimum fee one hour)

(A contact sheet is in effect ‘the contents of the camera card’, but is a preview for client choice and photographer processing – a legitimate and more transparent alternative to a ‘Dump and Run’, as the client can choose how many files they need processing on an amount or cost basis, in consultation with the photographer)

Burning files to CD - £10.00 per CD

Burning files to DVD - £20.00 per DVD

Digital Transmission - £20.00 for up to 10 images.

Each further transmission after the first 10 - £2.00 surcharge on each image (£15.00 plus £2.00 = £17.00)

VAT is added at the standard rate where the photographer is VAT registered.

NB: these charges are applicable only to editorial and PR photography for newspaper and magazines. Digital charges for medium to large format and studio work will be higher, especially where files are converted from RGB to CMYK, and proof prints are supplied.
______________________________________________________________________________

A processed digital image file is a file that is cleaned, cropped and colour corrected for appropriate use in print or the Web, and captioned with IPTC information. For further definitions and guidelines, please refer to the NUJ Digital Processing Guide, which provides a basic outline.

*
Photographers, particularly freelances, do not sell their images to clients - they ‘license’ the use of the image for a specific purpose and time frame for an appropriate fee, and issue a simple license agreement and Terms and Conditions in their delivery note. The license, in conjunction with covering digital costs and the photographers commission fee constitutes their ‘fee for the job’, and can vary from job to job. For further definitions and guidelines, please refer to the NUJ Photographic Licensing Guide, which provides a basic outline.

cite ceva despre bullying - de nasi la: 15/04/2005 01:14:41
(la: Barbatii romani din diaspora (si nu numai))
in primul rind pt educarea celor din gasca de la bloc :))))
in al doilea rind, pt orice alte persoane civilizate si educate care doresc sa afle mai multe despre bullies si bullying ca fenomen. este un fenomen care apare de la cele mai fragede virste ale copilariei si se extinde in viata sociala si de familie pina la adinci batrineti daca bully -persoana - nu este corectata.

What is bullying?
Bullying is when someone keeps doing or saying things to have power over another person.
Some of the ways they bully other people are by: calling them names, saying or writing nasty things about them, leaving them out of activities, not talking to them, threatening them, making them feel uncomfortable or scared, taking or damaging their things, hitting or kicking them, or making them do things they don't want to do.
Have any of these things happened to you? Have you done any of these things to someone else? Really, bullying is wrong behaviour which makes the person being bullied feel afraid or uncomfortable.

Why do some people bully?
There are a lot of reasons why some people bully.
They may see it as a way of being popular, or making themselves look tough and in charge.
Some bullies do it to get attention or things, or to make other people afraid of them. Others might be jealous of the person they are bullying. They may be being bullied themselves.
Some bullies may not even understand how wrong their behaviour is and how it makes the person being bullied feel.

What is Workplace Bullying?
How do you know if you're being bullied? Bullying differs from harassment and assault in that the latter can result from a single incident or small number of incidents - which everybody recognises as harassment or assault - whereas bullying tends to be an accumulation of many small incidents over a long period of time. Each incident tends to be trivial, and on its own and out of context does not constitute an offence or grounds for disciplinary or grievance action. Workplace bullying includes:
· constant nit-picking, fault-finding and criticism of a trivial nature - the triviality, regularity and frequency betray bullying; often there is a grain of truth (but only a grain) in the criticism to fool you into believing the criticism has validity, which it does not; often, the criticism is based on distortion, misrepresentation or fabrication
· simultaneous with the criticism, a constant refusal to acknowledge you and your contributions and achievements or to recognise your existence and value
· constant attempts to undermine you and your position, status, worth, value and potential
· where you are in a group (eg at work), being singled out and treated differently; for instance, everyone else can get away with murder but the moment you put a foot wrong - however trivial - action is taken against you
· being isolated and separated from colleagues, excluded from what's going on, marginalised, overruled, ignored, sidelined, frozen out, sent to Coventry
· being belittled, demeaned and patronised, especially in front of others
· being humiliated, shouted at and threatened, often in front of others
· being overloaded with work, or having all your work taken away and replaced with either menial tasks (filing, photocopying, minute taking) or with no work at all
· finding that your work - and the credit for it - is stolen and plagiarised
· having your responsibility increased but your authority taken away
· having annual leave, sickness leave, and - especially - compassionate leave refused
· being denied training necessary for you to fulfil your duties
· having unrealistic goals set, which change as you approach them
· ditto deadlines which are changed at short notice - or no notice - and without you being informed until it's too late
· being subjected to disciplinary procedures with verbal or written warnings imposed for trivial or fabricated reasons and without proper investigation
· being coerced into leaving through no fault of your own, constructive dismissal, early or ill-health retirement, etc

Chewy Flour Tortillas

These tortillas have real body and taste; they are perfect for gorditas, fajitas and eating out of hand.

2 C All-purpose flour
1-½ t Baking powder
1 t Salt
2 t Vegetable oil
¾ C Lukewarm milk (2% is fine)
Stir together the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and vegetable oil to the lukewarm milk and whisk briefly to incorporate. Gradually add the milk to the flour, and work the mixture into a dough. It will be sticky.

Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with flour and knead vigorously for about 2 minutes (fold and press, fold and press). The kneading will take care of the stickiness. Return the dough to the bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rest for 15 minutes. (This dough will not rise, but it needs a rest.)

Divide your dough into 8 balls of equal size, cover them, and let them rest again for about 20 minutes. Avoid letting them touch, if you don't want them to stick together.
Dust your work surface with flour. Working one at a time, remove each piece of dough and pat it into a 5-inch circle. With a rolling pin, roll out the tortilla, working from the center out, until you have a 7- or 8-inch tortilla a little less than ¼-inch thick. Transfer the tortilla to a hot, dry skillet or griddle. It will begin to blister. Let it cook for 30 seconds, turn it, and let the other side cook for 30 seconds. Remove the tortilla, place it in a napkin-lined basket and cover with aluminum foil. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.

Although flour tortillas, like corn tortillas, are best if eaten right after they are made, these tortillas will freeze well. Wrap them tightly in plastic, and they will keep, frozen, for several weeks. To serve tortillas that have been frozen, let them thaw and come to room temperature, then wrap them in aluminum foil and heat them in a warm oven. Microwaving tends to toughen them.

Here are some tips as to technique:

Do not use bread flour. You want flour with a low gluten content.
You don't want to over-flour your work surface, but you don't want your rolled-out tortilla sticking to it either. I found that the dough adhered less to an unvarnished wood surface (like an old cutting board) than any other surface I tried.
A flat dough scraper, known in baking parlance as a "bench knife", is very efficient in removing the rolled-out tortilla from the work surface.
When rolling out tortillas, dust your rolling pin with flour, and don't be afraid to apply pressure. Flour tortilla dough is pretty sturdy; but not to the point of rerolling. You don't want tough tortillas.
Once you get a rhythm going, you can roll out a tortilla, put it on to cook and, while it cooks, roll out your next tortilla. Seems like an arduous process but, with this method, I could produce 8 tortillas in about 10 action-packed minutes. Be sure to rewrap your fresh tortillas each time you add another to the stack.

If you like, you can substitute one cup of whole wheat flour for one cup of the all-purpose flour.

My personal preference is for plain tortillas but, if desired, you can spice up this recipe by adding

A tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs (like oregano or rosemary)
A teaspoon or so of dried herbs
Freshly ground black pepper
A tablespoon of minced jalapeños
A little garlic powder (or substitute garlic salt for the salt)
If you choose to experiment with seasonings, mix dry spices with the flour mixture and fresh or "wet" seasonings with the milk.

coffee test ;)) - de om la: 12/10/2005 23:45:46
(la: miss cafenea 2005)
This is a personality test.
Pick your answers instinctively.
There are no right or wrong answers.

Imagine yourself with a friend at a coffee bar. Your friend has just ordered a cappuccino, which you were thinking of ordering. So what would you do now?

A) "I'll have the same."
B) "Me too."
C) "Make that two."
D) "I'll have an ice tea." (Or any other completely different drink.)
E) "Cappuccino."

Pick your answer, then scroll down for what each statement means.
look down!!!

















"I'll have the same."
You are a very easy going person. You rarely refuse your friends when they come to you for help. Occasionally, it may be more wise for you to say "NO" sometimes. This might save you from unnecessary trouble.

"Me too."
You are an indecisive person. And the reason for that might be
because you think more than others! Sometimes you should just go for it, otherwise, you might find yourself missing out on a lot of opportunities that would eventually lead you to success.

"Make that two."
You have a strong will. You want to be in control of others. Although you do not show this, you have a hidden desire to be better than everyone who surrounds you.

"I'll have an ice tea." (Or any other completely different drink.)
You are extremely competitive and not afraid to show it. You
will never settle for second best. However, you should be careful of your actions, as others may feel uncomfortable because of your stubborn nature to win at all costs.

"Cappuccino."
Stubborn is the best word to describe you. You will not give in to anything once your mind is set. You live by your own rules, and damn the consequences. But to many people, you are just a hard-headed person with little consideration to others.

banc de dimineata - de donquijote la: 12/01/2006 12:09:19
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "8")
chiar daca pentru unii e deja amiaza...


-The Smiths were unable to conceive children, and
decided to use a surrogate father to start their
family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive,
Mr. Smith kissed his wife and said, "I'm off. The man
should be here soon.

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door
baby photographer rang the doorbell, hoping to make a
sale.

"Good morning madam. I've come to......"

"Oh, no need to explain. I've been expecting you,"
Mrs. Smith cut in.

"Really?" the photographer asked. "Well, good! I've
made a specialty of babies."

"That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come
in and have a seat.
After a moment she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we
start?"

"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the
bathtub, one on the couch and perhaps a couple on the
bed. Sometimes the living room floor is fun too....you
can really spread out!"

"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work
for Harry and me."

"Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one
every time. But if we try several different positions
and I shoot from six or seven angles,
I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results."

"My, my, that's a lot of .!!" gasped Mrs. Smith.

"Madam, in my line of work, a man must take his time.
I'd love to be in and out in five minutes, but you'd
be disappointed with that, I'm sure."

"Don't I know it," Mrs. Smith muttered.

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a
portfolio of his baby pictures. "This was done on the
top of a bus."
"Oh my gawd!!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed, tugging at her
handkerchief.

"And these twins turned out exceptionally well, when
you consider their mother was so difficult to work
with."
"She was difficult?" asked Mrs. Smith.
"Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the
park to get the job done right. People were crowding
around four and five deep, pushing to get a good
look."
"Four and five deep?" asked Mrs. Smith, eyes widened
in amazement.

"Yes," the photographer said. "And for more than
three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing
and yelling, I could hardly concentrate!
Then darkness approached and I began to rush my shots.
Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my
equipment, I just packed it all in."

Mrs. Smith leaned forward. "You mean they actually
chewed on your um...equipment ?"

"That's right. Well, madam, if you're ready, I'll set
up my tripod so that we can get to work."

"Tripod??"
"Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on.
It's much too big for me to hold for very long.

Madam? Madam? ...Good Lord, she's fainted!!"

And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers.
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory
to his buddy Norm.
Here's how it went:
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as
fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the
slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural
selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed
and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of
the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only
operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol,
as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and
weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer
eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more
efficient machine.
That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
