Black and viscous --- bound to cure blue lethargy
Sugar-plum petroleum for energy
Tightrope-balanced payments need a small reprieve
Oh, please believe we want to be
in North Sea Oil
New-found wealth sits on the shelf of yesterday
Hot-air balloon
inflation soon will make you pay
Riggers rig and diggers dig their shallow grave
But we'll be saved and what we crave
is North Sea Oil
Prices boom in Aberdeen and London Town
Ten more years to lay the fears, erase the frown
before we are all nuclear
the better way!
Oh, let us pray: we want to stay
in North Sea Oil

To my kentucky valentine:) - de Horia D la: 11/02/2005 17:11:39
(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata)
dupa cum stiti, luni va fi valentine's day, deci poemul de mai jos e pentru
toate fefelinele:)))

Collards is green,
my dog's name is Blue
and I'm so lucky
to have a sweet thang like you.

Yore hair is like cornsilk
a-flapping in the breeze.
Softer than Blue's
and without all them fleas.

You move like the bass,
which excite me in May.
You ain't got no scales
but I luv you anyway.

Yo're as satisfy'n as okry
jist a-fry'n in the pan.
Yo're as fragrant as "snuff"
right out of the can.

You have some'a yore teeth,
for which I am proud;
I hold my head high
when we're in a crowd.

On special occasions
when you shave under yore arms,
well, I'm in hawg heaven,
and awed by yore charms.

Still them fellers at work
they all want to know,
what I did to deserve
such a purdy, young doe.

Like a good roll of duct tape
yo're there fer yore man,
to patch up life's troubles
and fix what you can.

Yo're as cute as a junebug
a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like those far ants
I found in my bed.

Cut from the best cloth
like a plaid flannel shirt,
you spark up my life more
than a fresh load of dirt.

When you hold me real tight
like a padded gunrack,
my life is complete;
Ain't nuttin' I lack.

Yore complexion, it's perfection,
like the best vinyl sidin'.
despite all the years,
yore age, it keeps hidin'.

Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie
with a RC cold drank,
we go together
like a skunk goes with stank.

Some men, they buy chocolate
for Valentine's Day;
They git it at Wal-Mart,
it's romantic that way.

Some men git roses
on that special day
from the cooler at Kroger.
That's impressive," I say.

Some men buy fine diamonds
from a flea market booth.
"Diamonds are forever,"
they explain, suave and couth.

But for this man, honey,
these just won't do.
Cause yo're too special,
you sweet thang you.

I got you a gift,
without taste nor odor,
More useful than diamonds...
it's a new troll'n motor!!
Carpenters - Close to you. M-a induiosat melodia... - de providence la: 06/06/2006 20:01:45
(la: Versuri din melodiile voastre preferate...)
Why do birds

Suddenly appear?

Everytime you are near

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



Why do stars

Fall down from the sky?

Everytime you walk by

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you



(*) on the day that you were born

The angels got together and decided

To create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moondust in your hair

Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue



(**) that is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around

Just like me

They long to be

Close to you


blue eye, clear sky - de cosmacpan la: 13/10/2007 22:21:17
(la: Hai la plimbare...)
You swear you've had enough
You're ready to give up
On that little lie they call love
Then out of the blue clear sky
Fallin' right into your hands
Like rain on the desert sand
It's the last thing you had planned
Out of the blue clear sky
Here she comes a walkin' talkin' true love
[ Lyrics provided by www.mp3lyrics.org ]
Sayin' I been lookin' for you love
Surprise your new love has arrived
Out of the blue clear sky
Ain't love a funny thing
One day your givin' up the dream
And the next you're pickin' out a ring
Out of the blue clear sky

"Dance me to the children, wh - de Daniel Racovitan la: 29/09/2003 09:23:43
(la: Marele Eveniment)
"Dance me to the children, who are askin' to be born / Dance me to the curtains, that our kisses have outworn / Dance me with your naked eye, be my homeward dove / And dance me, to the end of love" (citat aproximativ, din memorie)

"Dance me to the end of love" un cantec despre statornicia in dragoste pana la moarte. Videoclipul: fotografii de nunta din tinerete, vechi de zeci de ani, alternand cu imaginile unor batrani tinandu-se de mana pe culoarele unei case de batrani...

Versul "Dance me to their beauty, where they're burning violins" e o aluzie la crematoriile din lagarele naziste, la intrarea carora erau pusi detinutii sa cante la violoncele piese de camera, in timp ce nenorocitii erau arsi...

...sint suficiente, blue eyes!
ai mei au ramas totzi sa "stinga lumina". Nu e o rusine. E un curaj mare sa pleci, unul si mai mare sa ramii.
Tot respectul!

Si nu uita, sa ai mai mult(?) nu inseamna neaparat sa ai mai bine!

PS
eu am plecat la 40; 10 ani mi-au mincat nemtzii, pina m-au lasat "liber".

stiu multzi ingineri pe aici care fac cu totul altceva ( si nu ca nu ar fi buni); sa practici ca medic in GE e in primul rind o problema politica. economistii si juristii, e clar ca sint exclusi!

cred ca se mai cauta IT dar nu sint sigur. In GE e criza mare de vre-un an jumate. Am fosti colegi care nu-si mai gasesc de lucru. Virsta e desigur un pct. hotaritor; si limba. Venit insa asa in "cautare" sint sande mai mult decit minime.

Discutii in plus... - de Dantimis la: 16/03/2004 11:02:35
(la: Cat va ramane din salariu?)
Cu riscul de a ma repeta, vreau sa spun ca e mult mai important cum iti chibzuiesti ceea ce-ti ramane din salariu, decat cat anume iti ramane. Cel caruia ii raman $200/luna de pus deoparte si ii investeste cu cap, la sfarsitul anului, sau in 10 ani va avea mai multi bani decat cel caruia ii raman $1000 pe luna dar ii cheltuie pe lucruri aiurea sau ii investeste pagubos.

Sa luam un exemplu fictiv: un tip Andre, conservator din fire, economiseste in fiecare luna $500. Ii depune constincios la banca intr-un savings account. Un alt personaj, sa-i zicem Ozzy, pune si el deoparte $500, dar nu intr-un savings account ci intr-un mutual fund (grup larg de actiuni in diferite sectoare ale stock marketului). Cine va avea mai multi bani la sfarsitul anului? Poate Andre, daca a fost un "bear market" (marketul in scadere). Dar in 10 ani? Dar in 30 ani? Sansele sunt 99% ca Ozzy va avea de cateva ori mai multi bani decat Andre. De ce? Pentru ca un savings account la o banca e ca si cum ai pune banii la CEC in Romania. Dobanda d-abia acopera inflatia. Peste 30 de ani banii din cont vor avea aproape aceeasi putere de cumparare ca si acum. Pe cand chiar si cel mai amarat mutual fund in 30 de ani va da o dobanda mult mai buna decat un savings account. De fapt, orice literatura de specialitate vei citi iti va spune acelasi lucru: saving accounturile (ca si CEC-urile din Ro) sunt cea mai proasta forma de investitie pe termen lung. Acestea sunt instrument de economisire pe termen scurt, cateva luni, un an cel mult. Pe o durata mai lunga, mai bine mergi si cumperi treasury bonds sau CD-uri sau orice alte forme de investitie garantate de stat. Sunt 100% sigure si au o dobanda mai buna decat un savings account. Dar cel mai bine e sa-ti faci un portofoliu bine balansat cu de toate. Atunci dobanda medie pe tot portofoliul va fi mult mai mare. O dobanda medie de 10%/an la un investment pe 30 de ani e ceva normal si aduce un profit frumusel.

Anul trecut de exemplu, si cel mai amarat mutual fund a adus un profit de 20-30%. Ce daca au scazut 2-3% datorita evenimentelor din Spania? Peste cateva zile sau saptamani sau chiar luni, se va reveni inapoi la valoarea dinainte de evenimente. S-a revenit si dupa evenimentele din 9/11. Marketul intotdeauna isi revine. Important e sa nu te pierzi cu firea si sa vinzi totul cand marketul e down, numai ca sa cumperi inapoi dupa ce marketul a crescut.

Andre, gresesti enorm cand zici "Sa investesti banii in actiuni este o pierdere sigura chiar si pentr cei care joaca la bursa mereu." Pai daca ar fi asa nu ar mai exista stock market si traders (jucatori la bursa) demult amice. Chiar crezi ca toata America, de fapt toata lumea, ar continua sa investeasca bani daca ar pierde mereu? Stock marketul are atatea aspecte: stocks (from penny stocks to blue chips), commodities, options (on stocks, on commodities), mutual funds, bonds, etc. Stock marketul este in continua crestere pt ca acolo se fac bani si se fac bani multi, ca-ti vine greu sa si numeri zerourile.

Zici ca singurul loc sigur este real estate-ul sa investesti? Ok, pot sa investesc in stock market in real estate funds. Si fara sa ma doara capul de chiriasi sau de pereti de zugravit. Ai auzit de "housing bubbles"? Si preturile la case au ups and downs ca si stock marketul. Iar in plus au un mare dejavantaj: nu sunt lichide. Ca sa vinzi o casa, iti trebuie timp, chiar ani uneori, iar daca te grabesti pierzi. Pe cand stock marketul e foarte lichid in majoritatea cazurilor.

Spui ca real estate e o afacere sigura? Sa-ti dau un exemplu simplu: acum cativa ani un prieten din Toronto, Canada, si-a cumparat o casa faina, intr-un cartier ca lumea dintr-o suburbie a orasului. A platit $280k. Dupa 2-3 ani era bucuros caci casa i-a fost reevaluata de primarie (pt impozite) la $350k. Un profit frumos. Alaturi s-a mutat o familie de indieni cu o duzina de copii si tot satul din India dupa ei. La scurt timp strada s-a umplut de turbane. Datorita recessiunii actuale tipul si-a pierdut jobul si si-a gasit ceva de lucru in capatul celalalt al orasului (aproape doua ore de condus cu masina). Si-a vandut casa ca sa se mute mai aproape de servici. A primit pe casa $250k, tot de la o familie de turbanezi.

Nu ar strica daca din cand in cand ai mai citi cate o carte de personal finance si chiar despre stock market. Un pic de educatie financiara nu strica nimanui. Poate astfel vei face diferenta dintre a lua un second mortgage pe casa si a-ti refinanta mortgage-ul. E o mare diferenta intre ele. Spunea-i ca ai vandut vechea casa si ca o parte din bani i-ai pus la banca in savings? Nu m-as mira deloc daca dobanda pe care o primesti pe banii depusi in banca e mai mica decat dobanda pe care o platesti tu la noul mortgage. In cazul asta, da-mi voie sa te intreb care-i afacerea? Si de ce nu ai pus toti banii ca si downpayment pt noua casa? De ce sa platesti dobanda pe un mortgage mai mare? Nu spuneai tu ca nu-ti place sa platesti dobanzi?

Pt Ozzy: am vizitat site-ul si am vazut ceva desene. Foarte faine. Felicitari. Ai talent intradevar. Mult succes in viitor.

In ceea ce priveste the real Ozzy: urasc heavy metal iar Ozzy mi se pare cel mai antipatic artist al tuturor timpurilor, indiferent de realizarile lui artistice. Sorry dar asta-i parerea mea personala. Tu in schimb poti sa-l admiri cat vrei, e treaba ta.

Nu tin partea nimanui si nu sunt impotriva nimanui. Si nu sunt inca milionar nici macar pe hartie. Dar ambitia mea e sa devin in curand si asta fara sa-mi cumpar masini si lucruri second-hand si fara sa muncesc 100 ore/sapt la patron. Romanii sunt un popor de oameni destepti, chiar daca au si unele defecte. Oricum suntem cu o treapta de inteligenta mai sus decat americanii, francezii, englezii sau alte natii dezvoltate. Chiar si cu numai cateva sute de dolari disponibili intr-o luna, se pot face multe daca ai vointa. Totul e sa-ti pui mintea la contributie si sa nu te complaci in comfortul de a nu face nimic.

Multa bafta,

Dan

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.

(la: CICCIOLINA, actrita porno - o meserie ca oricare alta)
"Oh,dirty women,you'll always be around..."
zicea intr-un cintec Ozzy,mai pe la 1978.
Azi,am tot scris in nestire numai despre sex,drugs and alcohol si experiente personale.
Asa ca ii dau branci acum si pe acest subiect,oare mai conteaza din moment ce toata ziua aproape am tot vorbit despre sex?
Cicciolina,cindva era Okay,deh omul mai imbatrineste,obositi sau nu sanii ei
cred ca un mic gind ascuns tot a trecut prin mintea ta,nu?
NU am habar de prostitutia in Ro.Am pierdut si lumea de underground din NY
de mult,deci vorbesc acum din trecut.
In Ro.cind aveam 16 ani vindeam la liceu reviste porno si cu un amic fotografiam si copiam DUPA reviste sute de poze in ALB-NEGRU si apoi eu luam jumate ,el jumate si le vindeam la liceele noastre,faceam bani cu gramada.
Tot atunci am intilnit niste fete,3 la numar ce veneau acasa la mine si erau f. nebunatice sexual vorbind.Se culcau cu straini,arabi de la camine de studenti
ori turisti.Isi aveau locul unde le placea sa stea la mine acasa.
Intr-un fel ma iubeau in felul lor si oricind aveam chef de sex,toate 3 imi satisfaceau gusturile,de fapt doar 2,a 3a ii placea sa se uite si sa se masturbeze.
Nu le ceream nimic,deci NU eram un peste(pimp)dar ele se ofereau cu cadouri ce la acea vreme erau ceva RAR:blue jeans,tigari straine,bauturi,alte haine.
Chiar si $,aveam niste amici ce aveau relatii la Shop(cum era pe vremuri)si cu $ mei im cumparau orice vroiam .
In fapt aceste fete ce nu aveau mai mult de 16 ani erau prostituate,pe stil de regim comunist.
Aveam amici ce veneau sa ma vada la o vorba sau pahar si fetele isi vedeau de ale lor,asta ii mira pe ei f. mult,pt. ca ori erau goale prin casa,ori la oglinda,aveam una mare si se fardau se uitau la sani etc.
Uneori eram si eu gol cu ele si nu neaparat sa avem sex.
Mincam goi,faceam baie impreuna ne uitam la Tv goi.
In retrospect asta era viata mea de liceu,dar am avut si alte fete cu care nu ma comportam la fel.

In fine,aici in USA am cunoscut ceva prostituate in trecut,unele de mari clienti
(super fine)numite"escort ladies",altele mai de trotuar,mai ales la acea vreme,vorbesc de 1985 erau plasate catre Hudson River,intre 22-24Sts.
Mai in sus erau transvestites si gays.Azi nu mai stiu nimic,de 14 ani incopace si multe s-au schimbat oricum,cind Giulianni a fost primar al NY a terminat total cu faimoasa 42nd.St!!!
Am mai scris ca am cunoscut diversi oameni aici care erau bouncers la streap-tease clubs si datorita lor am putut avea sex pe gratis ori cite un blow job la marea arta.
Am fost in casele lor,unul era ruda cu famiglia Genovese....sa spun mai mult?
Altul era var cu cineva din Bonanno family.
Am mincat cu ei spaghete si aici opresc conversatia.
Da,azi si de 14 ani incoace imi dau seama ca prostitutia e in defavoarea fetelor,sint considerate carne si atita tot,imi pare rau pt. ele.Unele ce am cunoscut erau sensibile daca ma crezi si se gindeau la parinti si ca au facut un pas gresit plecind de acasa in orase mari si cazind in miinile unor pimps exploatatori.
Obisnuiam sa dau uneori cite o raita pe st.22 si unele fete ma stiau,le dadeam bani fara a cere sex de la ele.
Alteori imi spuneau"Please,let me give you a free one",uneori intram in vreun gang si aveam un hand job+blow job si tot le dadeam bani.
Am avut diverse boli ,e imposibil sa nu le capeti in cazul meu,dar m-a ferit Dumnezeu de cele grave!!!Mai o gonoree,o blenoragie si multe injectii in buci cu penicilina 1000.000 units,mai in buca stinga de nu puteam umbla,mai in dreapta,mai in ambele si eram la pat.
Deh!Cicciolina e Okay with me,nu am nimic impotriva pornografiei,de fapt avem nevoie de ea sa zic :to put some spices in our lives.
Ai avut vreodata sex privind tu si partenera ta un film porno?
E excitant si creste in imaginatie dar si mai mult in altceva.Ha!
Ai vazut pe viu 2 fete avind sex intre ele si tu privesti si apoi intri in sex cu amindoua?
E o experienta colosala sexual vorbind,daca ai sansa,te sfatuiesc sa o faci.
Prostitutia va exista la infinit,de vrem sau nu.
Ce real ma supara e traficul si naivitatea unor fete dar soarta decide drumul fiecaruia.Poti opri destinul acestor fete? NU!

In urma cu 14 ani as fi spus:I'll do Cicciolina anytime anyhour anywhere!!!
Azi sint total la extrema opusa,ciudat nu?
Parca am fost 2 persoane diferite in acelasi trup!Poate m-am maturizat in final.
Am sex cu sotia de 2 ori pe sapt si poate la 2 sapt. ma masturbez,am imbatrinit cred si eu si ea.La inceput,mama mia!!!!
Ciudat cum un om devine parca peste noapte un ...homeboy!
Dar mai vorbim alta data.

Nu stiu de ce dar am impresia ca voi deveni Howard Stern-ul cafenelei.Sa fie adevarat?

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

mie una mi-e frica de moarte, asa de frica ca-mi ingheata spinarea cand ma gandesc la ea .... si nu pentru ca eu n-as mai fi ci pentru ceea ce las in urma realizand ca nu voi mai putea fi alaturi sa protejez si sa ajut ... si mai mi-e frica de moartea "clinica", cred ca e ingrozitor sa realizezi ca n-ai murit (desi toti au crezut asa) si ca nu mai poti face nimic decat sa-ti "privesti" sfarsitul...

cam macabru subiectul, dar ai cerut pareri.....

poate c-ar trebui sa creez a o noua conferinta: "ati vrea sa fiti nemuritori" ;) (ma mai gandesc la asta.......)

p.s. with all due respect for Crazy Horse.... no day is a good day to die :(
What does a million dollars mean to you ? - de Muresh la: 23/05/2004 11:23:50
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
Muresh
Smith climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to get close enough to talk to God.
Looking up, he asks the Lord. . "God, what does a million years mean to you?"
The Lord replies, "A minute."
Smith asks, "And what does a million dollars mean to you?"
The Lord replies, "A penny."
Smith asks," Can I have a penny?"
The Lord replies, "In a minute".
How to win friends - de (anonim) la: 27/05/2004 07:40:11
(la: Carti ce ne-au marcat existenta)
"How to win friends" a lui Dale Carnegie e cartea mea de suflet. Mi-a marcat vata intr-o maniera considerabila. O recomand tuturor. Cine mi-a dat-o cadou, initial, a vrut sa ma loveasca in amorul propriu. Nici macar nu-si imagineaza ce bine enorm mi-a facut. II multumesc din suflet!
Ca sa va conving de ce valoare inestimabila are aceasta carte, va redau cel mai simplu citat, tradus asa cum am putut:
... dind cadou un zimbet:
"Nu costa nimic, dar cistigi mult.
Imbogateste pe cel ce-l primeste, fara sa saraceasca pe cel ce-l daruieste.
Dureaza o secunda, dar amintirea lui poate fi eterna.
Nimeni nu e asa de bogat ca sa reuseasca sa traiasca o viata fara sa primeasca un zimbet.
Nimeni nu e asa de sarac, de a nu se simti mai bogat daca daruieste un zimbet.
E un relax pentru cei obositi, o lumina de speranta pentru descurajati, o raza de soare pentru cine e trist, cel mai bun remediu natural impotriva problemelor vietii.
Nici o persoana nu are mai putina nevoie de un zimbet decit persoana care nu-l mai poate poate darui."
... si un altul
"Valoarea unei persoane poate fi data si de motivele pentru care se supara".
