Today’s Holiday: Vasant Panchami


Today’s Holiday:
Vasant Panchami

Vasant Panchami is a festival of spring, celebrated throughout India among Hindus and Sikhs at the end of January or in early February. People wear bright yellow clothes, the color of the mustard flower that heralds the onset of spring, and mark the day with music, dancing, and kite-flying. In Shantiniketan, West Bengal, the festival is celebrated with special lavishness in honor of Sarasvati, the Hindu goddess of learning and the arts. Her images are taken in procession to rivers to be bathed, and books and pens are placed at her shrine. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday: Pierre Gassendi (1592)


Today’s Birthday:
Pierre Gassendi (1592)

As a priest and a professor, Gassendi lectured on theology in his native southeastern France. However, as a philosopher, scientist, and astronomer, he was compelled to try to reconcile his scientific beliefs with the teachings of the church. Dissatisfied with the teachings of Aristotle, he came to espouse empiricism and atomism, the belief that tiny, indestructible particles form the basic building blocks of the entire universe. In 1631, he became the first person to observe what? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:
Swiss Guard Arrives at the Vatican (1506)

Though various units of Swiss Guards have existed throughout history, the most famous unit—and the only one remaining—is responsible for the safety of the Pope. Known for their colorful uniforms, the guards must be single, Swiss, and Catholic and must have completed Swiss military training. The first 150 Swiss mercenaries were invited to the Vatican during the reign of Pope Julius II. In 1527, 147 of the Swiss Guards were killed while helping the Pope escape from whom?

Article of the Day:
Endurance Riding

Endurance riding is an equestrian sport in which horseback riders race long distances, usually 50 or 100 miles (80 or 160 km). To ensure the safety of the horses during the rides, veterinarians periodically inspect the animals and eliminate from competition any horse deemed unfit. Although any breed can compete, Arabian horses often dominate the top levels of the sport due to their natural speed and stamina. How long do winners usually take to cross the finish line in 100-mile (160-km) races? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

DHS reaches new milestone for Trump’s border wall

Contrary to some media reports that the government will pick one or two border wall prototypes, Customs and Border Protection stated Friday that it plans to take elements from each prototype and then create a whole new barrier from what it learned through the testing and evaluation process.

Department of Homeland Security officials are close to wrapping up the testing and evaluation phase for the eight border wall prototypes that were constructed in San Diego, Calif., two senior DHS officials confirmed Friday.

“The testing portion has been completed. Right now, the results of the information gathered in that test period are being looked at by engineers, Border Patrol, and many others, so we can look at what features of those designs are the best to do the job,” a Customs and Border Protection spokesman told the Washington Examiner.

The process started Nov. 26, and CBP, a DHS agency, estimated it would take 30 to 60 days, or some time around the end of January.

Six companies were tasked in September with building eight prototypes. Caddell Construction Company, Fisher Sand & Gravel Company, Texas Sterling Construction Company, and W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company built solid concrete walls, while Caddell, Yates, KWR Construction, Inc., and ELTA North America Inc. built prototypes using “alternate materials border wall prototypes.”

Contrary to some media reports that the government will pick one or two prototypes, CBP stated Friday that it plans to take elements from each prototype and then create a whole new barrier from what it learned through the testing and evaluation process.

The prototypes are being considered based on their ability to prevent people from climbing them, breaching them, or digging under them. They are also being studied for how they are able to deter or block traffic and how agents are able to operate around them.

“One of the things that is powerful, when you see the actual height compared to other designs,” the CBP spokesman said about the 30-foot models. “You have the other secondary wall that is 12 to 18 feet. People don’t realize how tall they are.”

The pathway forward for building hundreds, if not thousands, of miles of the Southwest border wall will depend on whether Congress funds the project.

DHS has begun adding to the barrier at the Rio Grande Valley in Texas where illegal immigration apprehensions were high in fiscal 2017, but the department cannot move on the $20 billion project without substantial funding from Washington, creating another hold-up for the Trump administration.

Tens of thousands protest against corruption in Romania | World news | The Guardian

Protesters

Tens of thousands of Romanians marched through heavy snow in Bucharest on Saturday in protest against proposed laws that critics say will make it harder to prosecute crime and high-level corruption.

An estimated 50,000 people marched towards parliament, blowing whistles, waving flags and chanting, “thieves”. Protesters briefly scuffled with riot police as they massed in the capital’s University Square, while thousands more demonstrated in cities across Romania.

The left-wing government pushed through a judicial overhaul through parliament in December, despite criticism from the European Commission, the US state department, thousands of magistrates and the centrist president, Klaus Iohannis.

Critics say the bills would weaken judicial independence and they have been challenged in the constitutional court, where they await a ruling.

“I came out today because I have two little boys and they deserve a better life in this European country,” said Florentina Caval, 34. “I honestly don’t think we will manage to overturn the judicial bills, but we need to try.”

Diana Gradinaru, a 45-year-old economist, said the new legislation could result in “terrible thefts” by high-level officials, citing legislation that meant video and audio recordings could no longer be used as evidence in prosecutions.

An attempt by the ruling Social Democrats to decriminalise several corruption offences at the start of 2017 triggered Romania’s largest street protests since the 1989 fall of communism.

Prime minister-designate Viorica Dancila supports revamping the judicial system. She is an ally of Liviu Dragnea, the Social Democrats chairman who can’t be premier due to a conviction for vote rigging.

Iohannis, who needs to sign off on the laws, on Friday wrote to the constitutional court, saying one amendment that would allow public officials to own businesses “diminished the standards of integrity” expected from public officials.

Transparency International ranks Romania among the EU’s most corrupt states.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Guardian than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.Thomasine F-R.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support the Guardian – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

When it comes to fighting corruption, some are prepared to walk the extra mile.

One man marched 450 kilometres across Romania — attracting many supporters along the way — to attend an anti-graft demonstration in Bucharest.

Protesters are upset at government moves they say would put the justice system partially under political control and decriminalise some corruption offences.

“This is why people are in the streets, because from month-to-month we saw that politicians are still trying to demolish the rule of law in Romania,” Attila Biro, a journalist at RISE Project, told Euronews.

Some 50,000 people joined the demonstration in Romania’s capital, braving the elements, as thousands more demonstrated in cities across the ex-communist state.

“We want a free country, we want freedom and free justice in our country. It’s all about the future of our children,” said Halina, a protester at Saturday evening’s march.

Romania, which joined the EU just over a decade ago, is ranked one of the bloc’s most corrupt states by Transparency International.

Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind

Carl Sandburg, 1878 1967

The past is a bucket of ashes. 1 The woman named Tomorrow sits with a hairpin in her teeth and takes her time and does her hair the way she wants it and fastens at last the last braid and coil and puts the hairpin where it belongs and turns and drawls: Well, what of it? My grandmother, Yesterday, is gone. What of it? Let the dead be dead. 2 The doors were cedar and the panels strips of gold and the girls were golden girls and the panels read and the girls chanted: We are the greatest city, the greatest nation: nothing like us ever was. The doors are twisted on broken hinges. Sheets of rain swish through on the wind where the golden girls ran and the panels read: We are the greatest city, the greatest nation, nothing like us ever was. 3 It has happened before. Strong men put up a city and got a nation together, And paid singers to sing and women to warble: We are the greatest city, the greatest nation, nothing like us ever was. And while the singers sang and the strong men listened and paid the singers well and felt good about it all, there were rats and lizards who listened … and the only listeners left now … are … the rats … and the lizards. And there are black crows crying, "Caw, caw," bringing mud and sticks building a nest over the words carved on the doors where the panels were cedar and the strips on the panels were gold and the golden girls came singing: We are the greatest city, the greatest nation: nothing like us ever was. The only singers now are crows crying, "Caw, caw," And the sheets of rain whine in the wind and doorways. And the only listeners now are … the rats … and the lizards. 4 The feet of the rats scribble on the door sills; the hieroglyphs of the rat footprints chatter the pedigrees of the rats and babble of the blood and gabble of the breed of the grandfathers and the great-grandfathers of the rats. And the wind shifts and the dust on a door sill shifts and even the writing of the rat footprints tells us nothing, nothing at all about the greatest city, the greatest nation where the strong men listened and the women warbled: Nothing like us ever was.

Scrisoare de ADIO către România: Plec până nu îmi pierd mințile!
Posted by Știri de Sibiu
„Plec până nu îmi pierd minţile”, este mesajul unui tânăr învins de sistem care a decis să părăsească țara. Scrisoarea de adio către România postată pe Facebook de Ştefan Moişanu, un tânăr inginer, a devenind un real manifest în care cei care trăiesc dezamăgirea faţă de sistem, faţă de stat, de politicieni, de interese se regăsesc, scrie gandul.info.

“Nu mai merge. Tot am încercat, am crezut că pot, dar am obosit. Vreau să ne despărţim. Eşti o ţara minunată şi sunt convins că într-o zi vei face un alt cetăţean foarte fericit. Dar eu trebuie să plec până nu îmi pierd minţile. Acum, la sfârşit, îmi e greu să spun dacă te-am iubit vreodată”, este un fragment din scrisoarea publicată pe rețeaua de socializare.

După un şir lung de nemulţumiri, dupa zeci de taxe şi de biruri pe care le-a plătit la stat în cei 12 ani de când lucrează pe cont propriu pentru firmele şi cei 121 de angajaţi ai săi, Moişanu a decis să plece din România. Şi şi-a explicat gestul într-o postare pe blogul personal pe care scrie de doar o lună de zile.

Inginer, absolvent al Facultăţii de Automatizări şi Calculatoare la Iaşi, cu un master în Administrarea Afacerilor, Moişanu are 33 de ani şi reprezintă a treia generaţie de ingineri din familie. Lucrează din facultate, iar prima firmă a avut-o în anul I. “În toată perioada asta am făcut tot ce m-a dus capul, pentru că mă consider un inginer bun, sunt la a treia generaţie de ingineri, şi asta m-am priceput să fac. Să pun cap la cap lucruri, să găsesc soluţii pentru anumite probleme, într-o manieră eficientă. Nu să vinzi cutii pe care le imporţi din afară, ci să creezi ceva aici, să ai un aport de valoare adaugată mare”, spune pentru gândul Ştefan Moişanu.

După gustul amar și cicatricile lasate de viata traita in România, tanarul isi incheie scrisoare cu o concluzie extrem de dura: ”Cred ca vei muri batrana si singura. Cei care te-au iubit si pe care i-ai batjocorit vor obosi sau vor pleca, iar cei care doar te-au folosit se vor muta la alta cand nu vei mai putea sa le oferi nimic. Si mai cred ca iti meriti soarta.”

”It’s not you, it’s me” – Ştefan Moişanu.

”Nu mai merge. Tot am incercat, am crezut ca pot, dar am obosit. Vreau sa ne despartim. Esti o tara minunata si sunt convins ca intr-o zi vei face un alt cetatean foarte fericit. Dar eu trebuie sa plec pana nu imi pierd mintile. Acum, la sfarsit, imi e greu sa spun daca te-am iubit vreodata. Nu stiu de ce am fost atat de convins ca da, dar am crescut alaturi de tine si nu mi-am imaginat cum as putea exista in afara ta. Cele mai frumoase momente din viata le-am avut alaturi de tine. Mare parte din ce sunt acum, cu bune si rele, e asa datorita tie. Dar si cele mai abisale clipe ale disperarii le-am aflat tot de la tine.

Cand eram la scoala ti-am adus primele jigniri. Am pus la indoiala calitatea dascalilor tai. Am trecut cu 10 la Romana nascocind citate din Tudor Vianu si altii si niciunul din ei nu a avt tupeul sa spuna ca sunt inventate, de teama sa nu se faca de rusine ca nu l-au citit niciodata. Le-am spus eu. Am avut curajul sa ii spun profesoarei de chimie ca e psihopata si sa imi sustin cauza in fata inspectoratului. In facultate le-am spus profesorilor ca eu nu am venit la facultatea de Microsoft si Oracle si ca nu voi fi partas la smenurile lor. Ai incercat sa ma scoti din sistem pe toate caile si sa ma pui jos cu alti invinsi dar am reusit de fiecare data sa rezist. Si nu te intelegeam de ce erai atat de inversunata impotriva unui tanar ce doreste sa fie mai bun pentru a produce pentru tine.

Mai tii minte cand eram student si mi-am facut prima firma? Facturasem 6 milioane lei vechi. Prima mea factura, scrisa pe genunchi la un client care se amuza uitandu-se la mine cu incerc sa calculez TVA-ul. In doua saptamani mi-ai trimis Garda Financiara care m-a amendat cu 50 milioane lei vechi pentru ca nu trecusem numarul contractului pe factura. Le-am spus celor de la Garda ca nu am, ca abia am facturat 6 milioane. Mi-au spus ca lasa, ai parinti, rude, esti tanar.

Dar cand am hotarat sa imi declar dragostea pentru tine si sa cumpar cu munca mea o bucata din tine? Cand am facut primul credit sa iau un teren, sa fac o casa unde sa muncesc pentru a prospera ca parte din tine si unde sa mor pentru a ma intoarce in pamantul tau. Mai tii minte cum m-ai batjocorit prin cei de la cadastru care mi-au spus ca nu e problema lor ca sunt gresite planurile si ca un sfert din teren e in sosea. Pierderea mea, ofranda ta.

Stii tu oare cate zile am pierdut in templele tale cu ghisee? Am invatat in ele umilinta in toate declinarile ei si tot nu am fost demn de tine, tot arogant am ramas.

Stii tu oare ca mi-am petrecut peste 5000 de ore conducand? Stii tu ca era sa mor intr-un accident? Si toate pentru ca nu poti construi drumuri si cai ferate, stii doar sa le desenezi ca un retardat pe servetele.

Am muncit cu bucuria si energia pe care numai tineretea ti-o dau, si pentru ca am avut cap si maini dibace am produs cat pentru a hrani cei 121 de fii ai tai ce mi-au fost angajati in anii astia. Si din banii pe care i-am facut vanzand roadele muncii mele ti-am pus lunar pe masa o parte frumusica. I-ai luat de fiecare data fara macar sa zambesti. Si daca am fost stramtorat si nu i-am avut mi i-ai luat tu singura din buzunar. Si daca nu ii aveam ti-ai trimis recuperatorii sa ii scoata de la mine cu bataia.

Hmm, mi-aduc aminte de cate ori am pus tot ce aveam gaj sa construiesc ceva, pentru mine, pentru tine, pentru noi, si totul a fost la un pas sa se naruiasca pentru ca o hartie zacea sub salamul cuiva la un ghiseu.

Nu am fost demn nici de oamenii tai. Oricat am muncit, abia am reusit sa acopar tepele pe care mi le-au dat. Pentru ca ti-ai invatat oamenii ca atunci cand sunt furnizori sa nu livreze, ca atunci cand sunt clienti sa nu plateasca, ca atunci cand le imprumuti bani sa nu iti mai raspunda. Si eu nu pot munci pe cat fura ceilalti.

Si pentru ca vorbim de oameni, te-ai schimbat, sa stii. Ai devenit mai rea, mai incrancenata, mai apasatoare. Si ai devenit barbara, in sensul istoric al cuvantului. Fiii tai stiu mai putina carte dar fura mai mult, violeaza mai mult, beau mai mult, mananca pana le crapa burtile si sunt intr-un permanent razboi. Ai distrus mediul sanatos in care familia, izvorul normalitatii, moralitatii si evolutiei, putea sa se nasca si sa creasca. Te-ai autocondamnat la sterilitate. Poate e felul naturii sa traga pe linie moarta o mutatie genetica nereusita, un experiment social ratat.

Stii ce, daca ma gandesc mai bine, it is you. Tot ce ti-am cerut a fost sa ma lasi sa muncesc si as fi impartit cu tine roadele cu bucurie. Sunt tanar, inteligent, doritor sa muncesc, si unde imi pun mintea si mainile ramane ceva in urma. Tu esti cea care m-ai transformat intr-un etern mester Manole. Si ca sa nu se naruiasca peste noapte ce am cladit, am zidit in temelii multe din cele ce imi erau dragi. Si cand politicienii tai se lauda ca edificiul a mai crescut cu un procent, nu spun ca in el sunt inchise suflete si sacrificii ale unor fraieri ca mine.

Cred ca vei muri batrana si singura. Cei care te-au iubit si pe care i-ai batjocorit vor obosi sau vor pleca, iar cei care doar te-au folosit se vor muta la alta cand nu vei mai putea sa le oferi nimic. Si mai cred ca iti meriti soarta”.

Nu esti singurul Omule !
Eu am 66 ani si am plecat in 1990 cu o sotie si un copil de 11 ani , in lumea larga , fara sa stim exact incotro ne duce viata…
Am avut infringeri dar si satisfactii majore , in special realizarea copilului
Acum continui sa lucrez pe cont propriu , nu sint bogat
Am o pensie mica de la statul Canadian si una si mai mica de la statul Belgian , de la Romania nu am nimic , desi am inaintat toate actele de un an…
Asa cum am mai spus: nu am putut alege unde m am nascut dar am ales unde voi muri …
Cind am plecat , am avut o idee: mai bine sa ma intorc
invins decit sa traiesc o viata mediocra cu regretul ca daca as fi plecat as fi avut o sansa
Eu iti urez mult curaj si nu uita:” una din conditiile intelepciunii este , intr-adevar, a te simti o particula dintr un torent plin de energie Dar a fi si constient de unicitatea personalitatii tale !

Today’s Holiday: Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde National Heroes’ Day


Today’s Holiday:
Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde National Heroes’ Day

The two countries settled on January 20 as their National Heroes’ Day because it falls on the anniversary of Cabral’s murder. A public holiday, National Heroes’ Day commemorates the legacies of Cabral and other freedom fighters. Leftist associations have observed the day by holding symposiums on the writings and political theories of Cabral. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

On paper, the plan called for gathering Jews into camps for deportation to work details in the East. The official record of the meeting does not mention killing but notes that the “evacuation” was to happen as soon as possible.

LYRICS
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies
The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love
And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time my love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face
