Se apropie inceputul anului scolar, dar scoala pare sa nu mai aiba un impact prea ridicat asupra romanilor, asupra setei de cultura a romanilor.

Concret, romanii nu se mai ingramadesc sa cheltuiasca prea multi bani pe activitati culturale.

Boom si criza
In plus, dezinteresul romanilor pentru cultura nu poate fi motivat prin constrangerile cauzate de criza.
Nici in perioada de boom economic nu ne inghesuiam sa vizitam prea multe muzee sau sa vedem prea multe piese de teatru. Ori sa citim carti bune in mod regulat.

Dar cum am ajuns la aceasta concluzie? Simplu: prin intermediul aspectelor financiare. Econtext va arata cati bani cheltuiesc romanii si ceilalti cetateni din UE pe activitatile culturale.
Mai precis, cat la suta din salariul mediu este destinat activitatilor culturale! In fiecare tara din comunitatea europeana.

4046-carte

Loc rusinos
Iar concluzia este rusinoasa pentru tara noastra! Pentru romani! Din toti europenii, romanii aloca cele mai mici sume pentru activitatile culturale. Cea mai mica parte din salariu!

Practic, am putea spune ca romanii nu-si mai rezerva, ca altadata, bani pentru carti sau muzica de buna calitate. Cele mai frecvente acte culturale sunt mersul la filme (de calitate indoielnica) si achizitia de ziare (la fel, de o calitate discutabila).

Dupa cum afirmam anterior, romanii cheltuiesc cea mai mica parte din salariu pe activitatile culturale. Pe prima pozitie in topul sumelor alocate culturii se afla finlandezii. Suprinzator, dintre toti europenii, acestia aloca cea mai mare parte din venituri pentru activitati si manifestari culturale.

Bani
Astfel, in medie, finlandezii cheltuiesc 11,3% din veniturile salariale pentru tot ceea ce tine de spectrul cultural. Nu britanicii, nu nemtii sau francezii, ci finlandezii! Iar pe locul doi se afla maltezii! Britanicii se plaseaza de abia pe locul cinci, iar nemtii pe zece!
Iar pe ultima pozitie se afla romanii! Care chetuiesc mai putin de jumatate decat ocupantii primului loc! Stam mai prostsi decat bulgarii, vecinii nostri pe care-i privim cu atata superioritate!
 
Dar iata cat din salariu aloca fiecare european pentru activitati culturale (% din totalul veniturilor salariale):

Sunt rezultatele a doua studii de specialitate care ridica noi semne de intrebare privind evolutia Romaniei in ultimii 22 ani.

falimenttttt.jpg

Potrivit datelor Fondului Monetar International (FMI), produsul intern brut pe locuitor, ajustat la puterea de cumparare a romanilor, va fi egal in acest an cu 40,2% din media Uniunii Europene. Spre comparatie, Bulgaria se afla la 43,9%, Polonia la 66,7%, iar Cehia la 85,7% din media UE.

PIB-ul pe locuitor este cel mai cunoscut indicator de referinta pentru a masura si compara nivelul de trai. Potrivit estimarilor FMI, decalajul se va mari in anii urmatori.

Astfel, in 2015, Romania va avea un PIB pe cap de locuitor de 15.396 dolari, fata de 12.644 in 2008. Bulgaria va inregistra in 2015 un PIB pe cap de locuitor de 16.204 dolari, iar Serbia de 14.592 dolari.

Nu-i de mirare, in conditiile in care, potrivit Institutului National de Statistica (INS), preturile reglementate de stat au crescut fata de anul 1990 chiar si de 37.000 ori, respectiv de 2 pana la 10 ori peste rata inflatiei din ultimele doua decenii. Cititi mai multe amanunte aici.

DailyBusiness.ro prezenta, anul trecut, o alta analiza care estima ca Romania va inregistra, pana in 2025, cel mai scazut produs intern brut pe cap de locuitor din Uniunea Europeana (UE).

Vestea buna este ca PIB-ul al Romaniei va creste semnificativ mai repede decat majoritatea tarilor Uniunii Europene. In 2025, PIB-ul pe locuitor va atinge 60% din media UE, fata de aproape 40% in prezent.

Cehia, Slovacia si Polonia sunt primele tari est europene care vor atinge nivelul mediu de trai din Uniunea Europeana pana in 2025.

Romania, in topul riscului foametei

Japonezii de la Nomura sunt printre cei mai pesimisti analisti din lume in privinta Romaniei. In septembrie anul trecut, ei au afirmat, intr-un alt studiu, ca suntem tara europeana cu cel mai mare risc de foamete.

Analistii ne clasau pe locul 12 din 180 de state in topul vulnerabilitatii la cresterea pretului alimentelor. Pe primul loc se afla Bangladesh, urmat de Maroc, Algeria, Nigeria si Liban. Vecinii nostri de la Sud de Dunare, bulgarii, se afla pe locul 19. Studiul Nomura ia in calcul procentul cheltuielilor populatiei cu alimentele (49,4% - in cazul Romaniei), PIB-ul pe cap de locuitor (9300 de dolari) si importul net de alimente (1,1% din PIB).

Cea mai mica speranta de viata

Econtext.ro a publicat un studiu care arata ca romanii au cea mai mica speranta de viata din toata Uniunea Europeana.

Romanii traiesc, in medie, 73 de ani si cinci luni, in timp ce, la nivel european, speranta de viata atinge 82 ani. Datele arata, pe de alta parte, ca femeile au o speranta de viata mai mare, de 77 de ani, in timp ce barbatii ajung, in medie, la varsta de 70 de ani.

La nivel european, cel mai mult traiesc femeile din Spania si Franta, in medie 85 de ani, dar si barbatii din Suedia si Italia, care ating varsta de 80 de ani, mai arata Econtext.

Polls show they'll do it again. IVAD late August results show Chavez ahead 55% to 34%. Only 10% of Venezuelans are undecided.

Eight major July polls showed Chavez leading by 15 - 27%. Subsequent ones weeks later revealed his support remains strong. Few doubt October's outcome. At issue is only by how much. On December 16, regional elections follow.

In late August, Chavez warned that opposition forces plan to declare victory before electoral results are announced. They'll say they won, reject National Electoral Council (CNE) totals, and claim fraud.

They'll call for violence, destabilization and US help. "They are gearing up… with some allies in the world, some media, some social organizations to claim victory," said Chavez. "We know they are capable of anything."

Chavez is right. World globalist media networks including TV news bulletins around the world are preparing their viewers for this scenario. The U.S. and its banker masters are stretching for world-wide war.

They wish to remove the main bastion of resistance and support to national independence and socialism across Latin America: Venezuela. They've already done so removing Libya as an obstacle to their designs in Africa, while in Asia both Russia and China have abandoned socialism, as well as those who resisted imperialism in South East Asia now compromised or isolated.

 

Venezuela's popular President Hugo Chavez urged respect for official results, adding:

"We will support the National Electoral Council. We call on all sectors to respect the referee, the Constitution, the laws."

The opposition candiate Capriles' economic advisor, Ricardo Hausmann, said his campaign will announce its own results independently of official ones. This is already a clear sign that the same scenario may be used to overthrow the popular Venezuelan government as was done in the Ivory Coast in Africa.

With free health and food subsidies for Venezuela's poor, which make up the vast bulk of the population, it is inevitable the majority will vote for the popular socialist party led by Hugo Chavez. Even the United Nations data shows that poverty has been greatly alleviated under the government of Hugo Chavez.

Capriles is playing to the poor by claiming, in spite of his foreign backing and clear background and allegiances with the rich and their foreign paymasters, that he is even "further left" than Chavez and would do even more for the poor. He also claims that Venezuela should use its oil only for its own population and not for the mutually beneficial support of and solidarity with others.

Most of Latin America (South America) now is under popular socialist governments, thanks to the efforts of Hugo Chavez to shore up support for those candidates, as well as financing a powerful independent news media network, Telesur, which broadcasts in Spanish and has done more to ensure that the neo-colonial, imperialist plans of the U.S. regime fail in the region.

This in turn strengthens the chances of Venezuela's poor to continue their rise to power, education and wealth. Regional blocs have formed in cooperation, and the entire region has become a no-go area for foreign bases and militarist designs with few exceptions.

Ultimas Noticias editor Eleazar Diza Rangel said the U.S.-backed Capriles will "claim fraud (and won't) recognize the people's will."

Since Chavez took office in February 1999, 15 national and regional elections were held. Independent observers declared them open, free and fair. America's Carter Center calls Venezuela's electoral system one of the world's most reliable.

Around 200 or more international observers will monitor October 7 voting. Expect confirmation of another exemplary democratic process. It puts America's to shame and then some. US federal and many regional ones lack legitimacy. Big money controls them. Ordinary people have no say.

Venezuelans get the real thing. They're not about to accept pre-Chavez harshness. They want no part of corporatism at their expense.

The Venezuela Solidarity Campaign published a report saying a leaked internal right wing document revealed plans to roll back public services if elected.

It calls for reducing state funding. Health care, education, food subsidies, housing assistance, communal council projects, and other programs Venezuelans rely on will be affected.

The document titled "First Ideas for Economic Actions of the National Unity Government" calls for "concrete steps to decrease, in the medium and long term, the heavy load of goods and services" by slashing overall social spending.

Privatizations and neo-liberal harshness are planned. What Venezuelans rejected years ago they want reinstated. They plan presidential diktat authority to enforce it. They want to "dismantle the socialized and collectivized state model." Their plan replicates IMF financial terrorism.

It mandates mass lay-offs, deregulation, deep social spending cuts, wage freezes or cuts, corporate-friendly tax cuts, prioritizing the divine right of capital, crushing trade unionism, and harsh crackdowns against non-believers.

Ahead of October 7, destabilization began. Expect more. Washington's dirty hands bear full responsibility. Chavez is relentlessly targeted. Bush policy was vicious. Obama promised better but lied.

He wants corporatism replacing Bolivarianism. He failed but won't stop trying. Chavez knows the stakes and what he faces. Hegemons demand unchallenged dominance. No holds barred tactics go all out.

Weeks ahead of October 7, a suspicious oil refinery fire occurred. A gas explosion ignited it pre-dawn. An immediate investigation was launched. Venezuela's Amuay facilitity was hit.

It's the nation's largest. It's part of state owned PDVSA's Paraguana Refining Complex (PRC). It produces 645,000 barrels of oil per day. Extensive damage halted production. Vital revenues were lost. Reports said operational areas weren't affected.

Chavez could have claimed foreign terrorism responsible, he did not, instead a full investigation has been launched, with no pronouncements being made on what was the cause until the results of the investigation are all in. Capriles on the other hand has spoken out constantly, using the time ahead of elections to accuse official neglect to be the cause, calling for resignations.

On August 31, production resumed. PRC head Jesus Luongo said strong winds complicated fire-fighting. PRC vice president Asdrubal Chavez said shipments resumed on September 2.

He also explained that contingency plans were implemented during down time. Regular distribution continued. "If the whole network of refineries were stopped," he added, "we'd be able to supply fuel for more than 10 days."

The incident took 48 lives. Plant workers and National Guard forces died. Over 100 others were injured. Hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed or damaged.

It's one of Venezuela's deadliest incidents. Earlier Tacoa and Las Tejerias refinery accidents killed 260 and 48 respectively. Around 160 died from a Ricardo Zuluaga electric power plant explosion.

Amuay's fire burned for days and spread. Damage caused was extensive. Chavez declared three days of mourning, saying:

"At this time of great pain, and from the bottom of my soldier's heart, may you and all of our comrades in arms from the National Bolivarian Guard receive a huge embrace in solidarity for the painful loss of such brave lives in the tragedy in Amuay."

"As the Son of Bolivar that I am, today my mourning is the same mourning as that of the entire country."

Following the incident, opposition forces and media scoundrels accused authorities of "gross negligence," "under-investment," and poor maintenance.

Chavez called it "very regrettable if some Venezuelans tried to use the pain of the victims to take advantage of the situation" and use it for political advantage.

"I know who is saying this," he said, "but I will not stoop to their level." Energy Minister Rafael Ramirez said the plant received around $4.3 billion in 2012.

At the time of the explosion, reports said government web sites were hacked. Twitter accounts were also taken over and used to spread disinformation about a coup being under-way, for days before Twitter restored their correct ownership.

Corporate-owned Globovision broadcast exclusive footage of the explosion. Someone unnamed was positioned outside the plant at 2AM to film it. Suspicions followed that Amuay was no accident.

On September 3, Press TV headlined "Sabotage more probably than mishap in Venezuela refinery blast," saying:

Responding to spurious charges of government negligence and other accusations, Chavez said:

"You can’t exclude any hypothesis….It’s practically impossible that here in an installation like this which is fully automated everywhere and that has thousands of responsible workers night and day, civilian and military, and that there is a gas leak for 3 or 4 days and nobody responds. This is impossible."

On September 6, Press TV headlined "US-backed opposition devises plots to destabilize Venezuela," saying:

Chavez supporters accused them of spreading fear and terror ahead of October's election. Amuay's incident was Exhibit A. Political activist Hindu Anderi said:

"Our principal is to always be mobilized, to be on alert against anyone attempting to sabotage the election on October 7."

"They will do this to create an environment in which Venezuela will be looked upon as an outlaw state."

"This will make it easier for military intervention or at least sanctions against Venezuela."

He and others accused Washington of plotting against Chavez, his allies and Bolivarianism. Chavez said America and opposition forces want his government destabilized.

On August 28, he showed how Bolivarianism differs from neoliberal harshness. He allocated millions of aid dollars for victims and family members.

Spouses of victims got lifetime pensions. Their children get educational scholarships. Damaged and destroyed properties will be rebuilt. Interim housing was provided. One victim said state help came quickly. No one needing it is excluded.

Chavez congratulated everyone who pitched in to help. "The spirit of patriotism, national unity, and the battle for life is being financed," he said.

Vice minister Hugo Carvajal of Venezuela's Integrated System of Crime Investigation said:

"The Bolivarian government has organized a multidisciplinary team of the best disaster investigators of the Investigation Division of Disasters of the CICPC and the Board of the Technical Scientific and Investigation Consultancy of the Attorney General’s office to work out the precise actions that lead to the fire."

Evidence is being examined. Satellite and ground photos were taken. Witnesses were questioned. Information is being carefully analyzed. Findings will be released once available.

Industrial accidents aren't uncommon. Amuay's timing and extensive damage raised suspicious red flags. Latin American expert James Petras agrees.

The incident, he believes, "was an act of sabotage, planned and executed by a clandestine group of terrorist specialists acting on behalf of the US government." Convincing arguments back this reasoning.

Cui bono is most obvious. Washington, Capriles, and corporate fascists hoped to benefit. They planned taking full advantage. Chavez was blamed. Venezuelans hear it ad nauseam. It wore thin long ago.

Nonetheless, dark forces never quit. Washington funds opposition forces. It's gone on throughout Chavez's tenure. CIA operatives infest the country. All independent governments are targeted. Chavez is Latin America's prime target. Its oil riches alone explain why.

Several times he said Washington wants him assassinated. Regional US bases threaten him. He's a marked man. He's also resilient.

He's not about to let threats roll him over. He pulls no punches. He condemns imperial US policies. Few anywhere match his outspokenness. Most Venezuelans support him for good reason.

Re-election next month looks certain. Imagine if America had leadership like his. He doesn't seek regional or global hegemony. He endorses peace, not war. He engages other nations cooperatively. He seeks unity and world solidarity. He heads the kind of democracy Americans can't even imagine.

His policies are socially progressive. State resources provide vital services. He champions civil and human rights. Ordinary Venezuelans are helped, not denied or persecuted.

No secret prisons exist. He doesn't target neighbors or practice torture. His elections are judged open, free and fair.
Last week, an indigenous organization said it had received reports of a mass killing in a remote jungle village. Chavez said his government still hasn't found evidence of any killings in Yanomami Indian communities in the Amazon.

Nicia Maldonado, the minister for indigenous peoples, said later on state radio that officials who travelled to the area last week had on Wednesday reached the community of Irotatheri where the massacre reportedly happened. She said the team didn't find any signs of bloodshed.

Leaders of the Horonami Yanomami Organization, a community group that released the original report, couldn't be reached for comment. In other words, it was all yet another lie for the ongoing media campaign through which Washington and its capitalist allies are attempting to remove the socialist government from power.

If they fail to do so at the ballot box, they'll declare victory and create a civil war and call for U.S. intervention. It's been done before. They'll do it again. This time however, the world must stand with Hugo Chavez and against U.S. terrorism and conspiracies.

After a year of battling cancer, Chavez has said he's now better and has assured Venezuelans that physical limitations stemming from his recovery will not affect his re-election campaign. On Wednesday, he said his last medical exam in June found him in good shape.
"I feel very good, even better. Because there are some who are throwing dirt and saying Chavez can't make it — he's falling, he's dying," the president said. "They're playing with this, but it's not going to happen. We're going to have a massive victory."

The contrast with Washington is stark. Leadership in both countries is mirror opposite. Venezuelans have choice when they vote. Americans get two sides of the same coin. It's corrupted, dysfunctional, tyrannical, and too broken to fix. Bolivarianism shames it.

E greu, trebuie sa strângi din dinti si sa încerci sa rezisti pâna la capat în perioada asta nu tocmai fericita, când presa a fost o zona foarte afectata de criza si batalia politica. E greu sa rezisti, sa ai coloana vertebrala... Eu zic ca am mers bine si daca am rezistat pâna acum, în aceste conditii, sunt convins ca va fi mai bine în viitor. Iar faptul ca „baronii locali” exista peste tot, mai ales în provincie, nu face decât sa-mi dea de lucru.

Gotiu la Rosia Montana

Ai trecut peste faza cu sucu’, berea, papica la sindrofii si pliculetul la buzunar în diverse ipostaze. Cum ai rezistat?

Foarte simplu, acum mai bine de zece ani, când am început sa fac jurnalism de investigatie mai aprofundat, cred ca materialele pe care le-am scris si mesajele pe care le-am transmis au dat de înteles ca nu este cazul sa vina cineva cu pliculetul la mine. Am aflat la un moment dat, în urma unei anchete, ca ma cauta un fost baron local, actualmente presedintele unei federatii sportive internationale, sa-mi dea pliculetul. Ce sa-i faci, n-a fost sa fie, nu m-a gasit atunci... he, he! Era vorba de Marius Vizer, ce sa ne mai ascundem dupa deget?! Suparare mare ca omul lui nu m-a gasit, dar eu cred ca a fost spre binele lui ca nu m-a gasit atunci! În rest, cred ca un jurnalist îsi face treaba atunci când transmite un mesaj destul de clar ca nu poate fi „apelat”, iar riscul de a fi deturnat este doua ori mai mare decât cel al aparitiei articolului.

Ai demarat în ultima perioada o serie de anchete privind devalizarea resurselor vitale ale României. În mare, dezbaterile publice s-au canalizat pe Rosia Montana, gazele de sist - Bârlad, Rosia Poieni... Se pare - ceea ce banuiam de mult si fara sa folosesc cuvinte mari - ca „sediul materiei” este cedarea pe nimic a tuturor resurselor tarii, cu complicitatea serviciilor de informatii...

Exista o lege a tacerii în presa, se stiu multe lucruri, exista o gramada de informatii pe care foarte putini le fac publice. Într-adevar, la nivelul perceptiei opiniei publice, e „la moda” Rosia Montana. S-a atras de atâtea ori atentia ca Rosia este doar vârful de lance, proiectele fiind mult mai multe, aproape toti Apusenii fiind „acoperiti” si nu doar Apusenii. Avem Baia Mare, ajungem la Arad, apoi Carasul... e vorba de o întreaga strategie de vânzare pe doi bani a resurselor naturale ale României, pe de alta parte - nu mi-e frica s-o spun - tradarea de tara a facut ca România sa devina o colonie. Cineva, bazându-se pe câtiva baroni locali care iau firimituri, profita la maximum de resursele naturale ale unei tari. Ba mai mult, se ajunge inclusiv la înstrainarea terenurilor agricole, o alta resursa vitala.

Cum suntem macinati marunt?

Pot spune ca anul de pornire a fost 1995 si personajul în jurul caruia se învârt multe dintre aceste afaceri este Frank Timis. Deloc întâmplator, în 1995 el punea primele „balize” atât pe Rosia Montana, pe Certej, în domeniul aurului, însa trecea si în partea cealalta, obtinând si licentele pentru gazele de sist de la Bârlad. Le-a vândut apoi în 2011 catre Chevron prin Regal Petroleum. Nu poti sa nu te-ntrebi cum e posibil ca un individ urmarit, condamnat pentru trafic de stupefiante în Australia, ajunge sa detina informatii-cheie în toate domeniile ce tin practic de siguranta nationala. Când vorbim de aur-argint, de gaze de sist, de metale si materiale rare, nu mai putem discuta de o scurgere accidentala de informatii! Logic, totul s-a oferit de catre cel sau cei care au centralizat informatiile la vârf!

De unde atâtea firme canadiene „strategice”?

Schema e un pic mai complexa; majoritatea acestor firme sunt listate în Canada si sunt subsidiare ale unor firme-mama, cu acelasi nume, înmatriculate în paradisuri fiscale bananiere. E o întreaga încrengatura, nici Fiscul american n-a reusit sa le puna cap la cap. Pe de-o parte, exista firme din Barbados, din Cayman, Insulele Virgine si-asa mai departe, iar pe de alta parte, ele sunt listate cu acelasi nume la Bursa din Canada. Alegerea Canadei ca loc de functionare a firmelor miniere, de fapt e vorba doar de sediul administrativ, e pentru ca acolo nu exista lege care sa reglementeze functionarea acestor companii în afara tarii. La începutul lui 2010, 60% dintre companiile miniere erau înregistrate în Canada si ele detineau peste 40% din totalul exploatarilor din lume. De ce au „puisori” în paradisuri fiscale? E foarte simplu, acolo dispare profitul! O sa vezi ca exista un Deva Gold cu sediul în Deva, dar mai exista un Deva Gold cu sediul în Barbados, practic o subsidiara a European Goldfields, preluat de Eldorado Gold, care e acum detinatorul a 80% din proiectul de la Deva. La fel cum exista un Gabriel Resources (care detine 80% din proiectul RMGC de la Rosia Montana) la Toronto, un Gabriel Resources în Insulele Jersey si unul în Barbados.

Vorbim acum de reprezentanti ai statului român care au aruncat o firma „momeala” gen Minvest, care va disparea cu totul în firma investitorului „strategic”... Dincolo de teoria conspiratiei, se pare totusi ca asasinii economici exista si sunt pe ultima suta de metri...

În ecuatie apare Barrick Gold, care preia tot mai multe procente din exploatarile aurifere, concern aflat si în culisele încercarii de preluare a Cuprumin. Are în România trei firme pe care le controleaza; Carpathian Gold, Valhalla, Samax... sunt preluate deja teritorii imense în Hunedoara, la Rovina, Ciresata si Colnic - ultimele doua denumiri de dealuri de fapt. Exista si neconcordante, sa nu le spun altfel, între ceea ce ne prezinta Agentia Nationala a Resurselor Minerale si licentele de explorare si exploatare prezentate de aceste firme pe propriile site-uri oficiale. Avem cazul Baisoara, lânga Cluj, despre care RMGC nu ne spune nimic, dar care apare cu licenta de explorare pe site-ul ANRM! Neconcordante existau si pe site-ul European Goldfields - tot a lui Frank Timis, practic „fratiorul” RMGC (Gold Corporation) -, preluata de Eldorado Gold la începutul acestui an, beneficiara contractului de la Certej. Actionar important de la sfârsitul anului trecut la European Goldfields e emirul din Qatar, cel caruia, pe 29 iulie, dupa anuntarea rezultatului referendumului, Basescu îi... transmitea salutari prin intermediul corespondentului Al Jazeera... În ceea ce priveste legalitatea acordului de mediu primit, mie mi se pare cel putin dubios faptul ca o agentie regionala a ajuns sa dea avize de mediu pe un proiect de interes national.

Putem întocmi o harta a secatuirii resurselor vitale ale României?

Încercam! Tot în Alba, lânga Rosia Montana, se deruleaza un al doilea proiect, la Bucium, pentru care exista licenta de exploatare. Un alt proiect este la Baisoara, în Cluj, unde exista deocamdata doar licenta de explorare. Astea ar fi ale RMGC-ului. Vine apoi Eldorado Gold, despre care v-am vorbit ceva mai devreme, care a preluat European Goldfields; ei au exploatarea de la Certej... toate le au în judetul Hunedoara. Au concesionat acolo 59 de kilometri patrati, apoi au în jurul orasului Brad concesiune de 338 de kilometri patrati, sub numele de New Brad, si o alta, New Deva-Muncel, o concesiune lânga Deva, de 137 de kilometri patrati. Deci ei au concesionat o treime din judetul Hunedoara! Dupa care apare Carpathian Gold, cu explorare la Rovina, tot în Hunedoara...

Carpathian e o firma listata la bursa, în spatele careia se afla de fapt Barrick Gold. Tot Barrick mai e implicat în Transilvania Minerals, care, în asociere cu Valhalla, au licenta de explorare în Arad (Bratosin) si Caras-Severin. Însa la ANRM nu mai apare nimic despre Severin! În Maramures apare exploatarea deseurilor din iazurile de decantare cu niste firme rusesti pe care înca n-am apucat sa le verific. Apoi Baita, în judetul Bihor, unde apare o licenta de explorare pentru un zacamânt mixt care contine si aur si argint, dar si metale si materiale rare.

Care este legatura cu gazele de sist?

Sunt doua legaturi. Prima e numele lui Frank Timis, care a preluat practic aurul Apusenilor prin cele doua proiecte care sunt într-un stadiu avansat - Rosia Montana si Certej - si gazul de sist de la Bârlad, vândut acum Chevron-ului. Se pare ca deja si-a vândut toate afacerile din România pâna la urma... A doua tine de aceeasi ”reteta” de tip colonialist de exploatare a resurselor naturale ale tarii.

Unde duce reteaua dupa intermedierile si „vânzarile succesive” ale lui Timis?

Din informatiile mele, merg catre fosta retea de Securitate...

Fosta si actuala retea... oare în mâna cui o fi, a lui Antonescu?

Ha, ha... parca nu se stie?! Dar în poveste apare si Arpad Paszkany... Cine sunt actionarii si principalele nume din spatele firmelor „canadiene”? Pe de-o parte sunt firme miniere - cum e de exemplu Newont-ul sau Barrick sau Benny Steinmetz Group (BSG), cu exploatari în Sierra Leone -, iar pe de alta parte sunt „greii” de pe Wall Street: John Paulson, Tomas Kapplan, George Soros, principalii jucatori la bursa pe minele de aur. BSG are o legatura cu Videanu de pe vremea când era primar, au dezvoltat un mare proiect imobiliar, Planorama, în Capitala, nu stiu daca e finalizat nici pâna astazi.. Asta ar fi o filiera... Revenind la Barrick, ei au investit mai mult în actiuni ale firmelor ce se ocupau cu aurul în România, dupa ce, anul trecut, pe 14 iulie, s-a primit acordul pentru descarcarea de sarcina arheologica pentru Cârnic (Rosia Montana). Dupa patru zile Barrick cumpara masiv actiuni. La Carpathian a cumparat 9% cu posibilitatea de a-si mari pachetul. Presedintele Barrick Gold este Peter Munk, unul dintre principalii actionari la TriGranit, care-l are ca asociat si administrator în România pe Arpad Paszkany. Au fost si fotografiati amândoi la inaugurarea Polus Center din Cluj.

Arpad Paszkany cel reevaluat de Basescu?!

Da, dar sa nu uitam ca tatal sau, tot Arpad, facea parte dintr-un grup din care mai faceau parte un domn Voiculescu, un domn Columbeanu-tatal, un domn Demian Sandor, seful TriGranit care, înainte de 1989, avea niste ocupatii similare în Ungaria cu cei pe care i-am enumerat pâna acum în România.

Înseamna ca Irinel Columbeanu-fiul nu si-a facut averea vânzând telefoane în fata la Inter...

Si Paszkany spune ca si-a facut avere din bisnita cu deodorante...

Mai era unu’ Catarama, care zicea prin anii 90’ ca s-a pricopsit dupa ce vânduse vreo sase motociclete...

He, he...

Se mai simplifica lucrurile... Întelegem de ce functioneaza atât de bine Diktatul axei Bruxelles - Washington...

Pot da doar o parte din informatii, pentru ca mai am o parte în verificare. Acte prin care se vede cum firme de lobby si public-relation din New York recomanda companiei Gabriel Resources sa lucreze cu niste firme germane, una producatoare de cianura, alta specializata în închiderea minelor, pentru a se obtine sprijinul ambasadorului Germaniei în România.

Aceste fiind zise, mai avem ceva de facut când Serviciile au luat-o „pe aratura”?

Cel mai bun lucru pe care-l putem face este sa ne opunem, asa cum s-a întâmplat în cazul Rosia Montana. Foarte multa lume e acum disperata si demoralizata dupa acest aviz de mediu de la Certej, dar trebuie continuata lupta în justitie si mai ales pentru aplicarea hotarârilor judecatoresti. Povestea de la Rosia era terminata de mult daca se respectau hotarârile definitive si irevocabile...

Dar mai avem judecatori nesantajabili cu dosare din arhiva SIPA?

Da, mai avem si oricum, pâna la urma, presiunea publica din România a oprit o lege speciala de expropiere în favoarea companiilor miniere care trecuse de Senat si ar fi trebuit sa fie votata înca de anul trecut în Camera Deputatilor. Peste 100.000 de semnaturi si fiecare deputat contactat (mail, telefon etc.) si avertizat de zeci, sute, mii de cetateni din colegiilor lor ca daca voteaza legea se vor „arde” definitiv, uite ca i-a oprit, cel putin pâna la ora la care vorbim. Uite ca nici la Certej n-au toate proprietatile pe care ar trebui sa-si desfasoare proiectul. Oricum, oamenii de acolo, care se opun, trebuie sa stie ca vor fi sprijiniti de cei din societatea civila care au luptat si pâna acum la Rosia Montana, de la profesori universitari si academicieni pâna la (nu în ultimul rând) he, he... membri ai galeriilor de fotbal.

Nu ti-e un pic frica, sau mai bine zis, ai ce pierde din toata povestea asta? Cum stai cu declaratia de avere?

Am o masina de litraj mic careia i-au taiat de trei ori cauciucurile pâna acum. A fost si atacata cu oua la Rosia Montana de agentii de paza de la RMGC - nu stiu ce i se poate întâmpla mai mult, ca e o masinuta de 1,2, acum i s-a spart si toba, dar ”opera” asta din urma îmi apartine, pe drumurile din Rosia. Despre conturile mele, daca gasesc hackerii ceva prin ele, îi felicit, macar sa-mi spuna si mie c-am avut ceva. Oricum, mai bine te lipsesti de orice ban numai sa vezi ceva unic în lume. În Muntele Cârnic, sub pamânt, ce vor astia sa distruga... sa-ti imaginezi doar pesterile din Moria, din ”Stapânul Inelelor”. Ei, asa ceva exista în realitate! De la galeriile romane si pâna la exploatarile recente, închipuie-ti camerele cu coloane pe 24 de etaje. Siruri, siruri de coloane si de camere, si labirinturi... Ca înaltime sunt câteva blocuri turn unul peste altul.. E un palat interior. Asa ceva nu exista nicaieri în lume!

Abdullah Senoussi abduction.

Libyan illegal occupation regime officials continue to contradict each other over the details of the abduction of Abdullah Senoussi from Mauritania to Libya. Senoussi resisted his abduction but an unarmed refugee is not match for armed abductors. In efforts to downplay the illegality of the event, which was carried out after financial payments amounting to millions of dollars were made to the private accounts of Mauritanian officials, and additional promises of substantial aid to the government were made.

Abdullah Senoussi along with Sayf al Islam Qadhafi and others such as Musa Kusa, currently in Qatar and cooperating in order to avoid a similar abduction, hold vital information about high-level corruption among not only dozens of African leaders who failed to support the Libyan Jamahiriya last year but who had received millions in cash payments in order to gain support for African Union projects, but also key western leaders notably Britain's former Prime Minister Tony Blair and France's former President Sarkozi.

Both Senoussi and Qadhafi are wanted by the imperialist stooge "International Criminal Court" which specializes in putting any people on its wanted list, who are obstacles in the way of the so-called New World Order banking and resource monopoly elites. The ICC however has no jurisdiction in most countries, including most of Africa, and is not recognized as having any legitimacy by the Libyan Jamahiriya. The illegal occupation regime representing British, French, Italian and U.S. hegemony and theft of Africa's resources and Gulf Arab revenge also does not recognize its jurisdiction.

The reasons for this are to ensure that the ICC is not landed with Qadhafi and Senoussi, and thus world publicity from the Netherlands in Western Europe, which would expose the damning theft of funds and corruption of key western leaders. The occupation regime in Libya has thus been instructed, as revealed by Mathaba sources, to ensure that Sanoussi does not get abducted to the so-called ICC in The Hague, but are given a kangaroo court prosecution in Libya, without international media coverage. Executions, torture and widespread abuse of unlawfully detained prisoners in Libya is now rampant.

Crimes Against Humanity.

One million Libyans, almost a quarter of the population, fled to neighbouring countries during the war of occupation last year, with deaths topping one hundred thousand. Tens of thousands languish in make-shit jails and are held incommunicado from families and without any legal representation. A widespread resistance effort to free political prisoners is ongoing with insecurity rampant across Libya.

Mathaba analysts believe Sayf al-Islam Qadhafi is being held as a reserve card to play in the event that unity may be required in the country which is split along tribal divisions and endless revenge reprisals for the deaths of an estimated 50,000 Libyans at the hands of local outlaws and foreign mercenaries, with another 60,000 estimated to have been killed by the illegal US-European NATO bombings and missile strikes across Libya in violation of their own "no fly zone" and mass starvation during the sieges of Beni Walid and Sirte, which were reminiscent of the Siege of Stalingrad.

Accurate history has yet to be written since Google, owners of YouTube, are withholding tens of thousands of videos containing evidence of the commission of Crimes Against Humanity in Libya, and will thus be the subject of future world people's conferences on crimes against humanity to bring to account those who aided and abetted as well as carried out those crimes.

Israeli Lawyer and Saadi Qadhafi.

In an effort to further discredit the Qadhafi family and erode support for it, the remaining family members are for the most part not only being held incommunicado, with others lying low while support builds up for the jamahiri resistance, but are having Israeli lawyers imposed upon them.

The General Secretary of the General People's Committee of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Dr Baghdadi Mahmoudi, who has been held unlawfully and incommunicado as a political prisoner for over a year in spite of his position as head of state of the Libyan Jamahiriya, was also imposed a plethora of lawyers who fought among themselves, with some of them being appointed by him and others imposed by western intelligence agencies, as Mathaba sources reveal, having been approached.

The Israeli lawyer Mr Kaufman who allegedly acts for Saadi Qadhafi who is in exile in Niger, has spoken to western media about his high-level contacts within western governments and his attempts to lift the UN-imposed travel ban upon his alleged client. This publicity ensures naturally that there is no chance such a ban will be lifted, and both Niger and South Africa have denied his story.

Niger government spokesman Marou Amadou told media on Saturday that the issue of Qadhafi leaving had not been decided.

"We never made a decision like this and I have no idea where this lawyer came up with this," he said.

A South African government spokesman, Clayson Monyela, likewise denied that his country had received an asylum application from Saadi. "We don’t have such a request," he said.

The South African ambassador in Tripoli is unlawfully present since the regime in Libya is illegal. South Africa was a key player in selling out Africa to its colonial masters after pressure from the U.S. and "inducements". The South African "ambassador" and traitor to Africa and Islam who has yet to settle accounts, Mohammed Dangor, told British intelligence agents in Tripoli that "South Africa had in fact acted to ensure that Saadi’s request for the travel ban to be lifted was blocked."

Dangor told the agents that South Africa and Germany, both members of the UN Security Council, had raised objections to Kaufman's application, thus putting a block on it.

Without them removing what is in effect a veto, the block on Saadi Qadhafi's travel remains in place – whatever Niger decides.

Niger has consistently and honourably refused to extradite Qaddafi, citing concerns that if handed back to Libya, he would not receive a fair trial. Niger is home to the most honourable and upright Muslims in the world, along with the Tuareg of the Sahel-Sahara.

White-washing History.

His-story continues to attempt to impose itself at the hands of the white racists of Europe, with yet another film which falsifies events and glorifies criminals having received an "award" at the Venice film festival. Similar events took place in France at the Cannes film festival, where narcissists congratulate each other and boost their egos in an orgasm of delight at their own delusion.

Hollywood in the United States of America has long fulfilled this role of creating a fake reality as well as preparing world populations for control and domination by the western elite.

Libyan terrorists and islamist heretics to be released from Iraq

As part of a deal to supply the weakening occupation forces of Libya which are facing increased resistance and internal divisions, a number of islamist heretics and terrorists are being released by Iraq and sent back to Libya although they had been fighting against U.S. and Iraqi forces there.

Libya has already supplied entire battalions of terrorists, who had been returned to Libya from training camps abroad and in some cases detention, as well as dangerous criminals freed from Libyan Jamahiriya prisons, to Syria, where they have been unable to impose their zionist and western paymasters ambitions.

This in turn has weakened the limited control of the occupation government of Libya's regime.

Illegal Business in Libya: future prosecutions.

Many opportunistic companies have set up, or continued, business in Occupied Illegal Libya, and will pay future price of the wrath of the masses in a Greater Jamahiriya and supported by New Era activists and experts worldwide.

Wide Area Communications specialists Hermes Datacomms are the latest company to join the ranks of blood money suckers when it was awarded a "telecommunications license" by the illegal occupation "government" in Libya.

The license "allows Hermes Datacomms to provide communications to the oil and gas industry and other sectors in Libya including fixed-line networks, international telecommunications, communication networks, VSAT communications and internet services."

“Our aim is to ensure that all our customers in Libya are provided with direct and extensive support and a more dependable and secure service”, said Hermes Datacomms Country Manager Libya, Glynn Wagg, now wanted for holding to account and for placing on an international watch list by the popular masses, which is awaiting set up.

Hermes Datacomms has an established presence within the Libyan capital, Tripoli, trading continuously and operating in Libya since 2005; supplying VSAT communication, onshore and offshore, in city and remote locations.

The company specialises in providing tailored Wide Area Communications to the upstream oil and gas industry worldwide including remote and challenging locations such as Algeria, Angola, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Libya, the Middle East, Iraq, Russia and Turkmenistan, according to a company press release.

Just as the Mayans predicted so many years ago, the apocalypse would become apparent in 2012. But many misinterpret the apocalypse to be the end of the world, when in fact it actually means an “un-covering, a revelation of something hidden.”

10 Signs That You're Fully Awake

As many continue to argue the accuracy of the Mayan calendar, it can no longer be argued that a great many people are finally becoming aware of what has been hidden from them for so long. Of course this awakening is not an overnight process. It takes time to peel away the many layers of lies to get to the core of the ultimate truths.

It would be beyond pretentious for us to claim to know all of the secrets of the universe. We don’t. Everyday we are humbled by what we don’t yet know.

However, it is becoming clearer by the day what isn’t true. And by that measure alone, it is possible to determine if you’re one of the people beginning to wake up.

Here are ten signs you may be fully awake:

1. You know there’s no meaningful difference between major political parties (Democrats and Republicans): It’s so easy to get caught up the left-right debate and believe there’s a difference between the two major political parties. However, debate is one thing, while actions are another. By their deeds you shall know them, and it is indisputable that there is no significant difference between political parties when it comes to action on the most important issues. Even hardened ideologues like John Cusack are beginning to wake up.

2. You understand that the Federal Reserve, or international central banking more broadly, is the engine of our economic problems: Debt slavery is the totalitarian force that threatens all of humanity, not some temporary political puppet or some greedy Wall Street trader. When a small group of people have the ability to create wealth out of nothing and charge interest on it, they have the ability to enslave the planet to their ownership despite what type of government a country claims to have.

3. You know that preemptive war is never necessary:  When we realize that self-defense is the only acceptable form of violence, then we become awakened human beings. To suggest war because someone is different from you, or they may pose a threat in the future is simply ludicrous. And when did the idea of bombing civilians become humanitarian? No one wants war except for the immoral creeps that benefit from it.

4. You know that you’re being systematically poisoned, how, by whom, and why: Admittedly, there’s a lot to learn in terms of how we are secretly being poisoned. But the fact remains that we are being systematically poisoned, and it is likely for the deliberate purpose of dumbing us down and, ultimately, culling the population. Who could believe anyone is so evil to do that to innocent people, you may ask. Well, once you begin to seek the answer to that question, you’re one step closer to enlightenment.

5. You understand that government can never legislate morality, nor should they: When you realize the role of government is only to protect your liberty and work for the well being of the citizens, you’re awakened. There should be one simple law regulating morality: Do no harm. Thus, it’s impossible for the government to enforce morality with guns, cages, and taxes because those clearly cause severe harm to your liberty and our well-being.

6. You know that the mainstream media is wholly owned and manipulated by the ruling elite: A dwindling number of people still actually believe what they hear coming from the establishment media as if it’s gospel, even when they already accept that they are bought and paid for by the elite controllers. Yet, recognizing that they are nothing more than a propaganda machine and a form of mind control are the first steps in being able to critically think beyond the scientific messaging they broadcast.

7. You know that your neighbors are not your enemy even if you have fierce ideological disagreements: This is perhaps the most difficult thing to overcome in the awakening process. But it’s vital to understand that your neighbors have been indoctrinated and hypnotized like the rest of the us, until someone helps shine a light on inconsistencies in our thoughts and beliefs. Most of their ideas are not their own. They are suffering just like the rest of us. It’s okay to condemn their actions if they’re harmful, but those who are awake will not give up on spreading information that can enlighten those who might still be in the dark. None of us were born “awake” and all of us can learn even more.

8. You know that the endgame is one-world control of planet Earth: Once you understand that the endgame for the ruling elite is to have complete control of all vital facets of society through a global government, one-world currency, international armed forces, and so on, it is simple to see through the lies and propaganda surrounding even the most confusing world events. You will never go back to sleep when you fully accept this reality.

9. You recognize that there are esoteric powers manipulating our physical world: Whether you’re a religious or spiritual person, scientific or just plain curious, there are many theories about an invisible force at play in all of this. Obviously it’s impossible to prove exactly what it is. You may not want to believe it, but the ruling elite takes their occult rituals deadly serious. And they likely know something we don’t. Just by keeping an open mind about this possibility, you’ll forever keep an open mind about the things we can actually see, hear, taste and touch. Current science has shown that we can only “see” what the visible light spectrum reveals, which amounts to the tiniest fraction of all that can theoretically be seen within the full spectrum of energy. Part of any awakening is realizing that there is much more that is possible than impossible.

10. The power to change the world rests with you and you alone: For too long people have believed themselves to be weak, or relied on others to change the world for them. You’ll know that you’re fully awake when you realize that you have infinite power to change the world by simply living the change you want to see. First, you have to identify the principles that you believe in and then go out and live by them. If just a small minority took steps to do this, it would shake the establishment to its core.

What kind of world do you want to live in?

Un articol recent publicat (data publicarii in Business Magazin: 01 februarie 2010 - n. Red. TA) in cotidianul italienesc La Repubblica scria ca Romania este tara care detine suprematia serviciilor secrete din Europa. Ceea ce ne ridica inevitabil cateva intrebari, zic eu, firesti.

Cercetarea jurnalistilor italieni, mult mai obiectivi si neinruditi cu serviciile noastre, a pornit de la marinimia premierului Boc de a acorda, in vremuri de criza, bugete mai consistente acestor institutii. Fie ca se numesc SRI, SIE, STS, UM 0215 (faimosul serviciu al Ministerului de Interne, doi s-un sfert), acestea au primit zeci de milioane de euro pentru propria administrare, in conditiile in care alte institutii fac reduceri de personal si sunt nevoite sa isi diminueze cheltuielile. La Repubblica constata si ca numarul agentilor secreti este de sase ori mai mare decat al celor din FBI si de cinci ori superior colegior britanici din MI5.

Astfel, potrivit cotidianului, celebra Securitate romana, una dintre cele mai puternice si brutale politii secrete din lume, abolita in 1989, era compusa din sase departamente, care avea 11.000 de agenti. Si stim bine cat de eficienta era activitatea lor pentru pastrarea "sigurantei nationale", adica a stabilitatii regimului comunist.

Daca acum, in 2010, Serviciul Roman de Informatii are 12.000 de agenti, nu vi se pare firesc sa ne intrebam cu ce se ocupa acestia? Sau acum putem sa ne explicam si mai clar de unde apar unele discutii telefonice in presa sau probe-cheie care declanseaza linsaje mediatice ori procese care tin prima pagina? Putem acum sa intelegem, daca mai era necesar, si batalia pentru servicii ca doi s-un sfert, care a rasturnat trei ministri in mai putin de o luna? Putem sa intelegem de unde apar motivele de santaj intre politicieni? Si poate putem sa ne luam adio si de la mandatul de ascultare, care ar trebui emis, potrivit legii, numai de catre judecator.

Sunt curios de ce nu a aparut materialul in presa romaneasca decat foarte firav.

Sunt curios si cati securisti vor lasa comentarii in urma acestui editorial.

I am not a mushroom so don't keep me in the dark and feed me bullshit.

Judge says ability to walk heel-to-toe not related to ability to drive.

A woman who admitted to using marijuana before getting into her car has been acquitted of impaired driving, with the Saskatoon judge saying he was not convinced her ability to operate a vehicle was affected.

The case, recently published to an online legal database, concerned the arrest of a woman on June 19, 2011, who was pulled over during a routine traffic enforcement program.

According to the judge, the officer directed her to pull over even though she was driving appropriately and in her proper lane of travel.

Unlike drunk driving cases, where .08 per cent is the legal limit for a person's blood-alcohol level, there's no equivalent for marijuana-impaired driving. Instead, officers must rely on a lengthy list of tests to establish impairment.

" I would have appreciated some evidence as to how these observations related to the accused’s ability to drive a motor vehicle." — D. E. Labach, provincial court judge

In the Saskatoon case, when the officer went to the woman's car, he detected what was described as an "overwhelming odour of marijuana." He decided to investigate further and learned from the woman that she had smoked some marijuana earlier in the evening. With that, the officer decided to have the woman perform a number of roadside tests, including walking heel-to-toe and touching the tip of her nose with her finger.

Missed her nose

"She was only successful in touching her nose on one of six attempts," the judge noted in his decision. "On the other five attempts, she touched her face right under her nose."

The officer noted that the woman had reddened eyes, something consistent with marijuana use.

Tests done on suspect in Saskatoon marijuana case:

  • Horizontal gaze nystagmus test.
  • Lack of convergence Test.
  • Pulse check.
  • Walk and turn test.
  • One leg stand test.
  • Romberg balance test.
  • Blood pressure test.
  • Temperature check.
  • Pupilometer eye Test.
  • Finger to nose test.
  • Urine sample.

Source: Court documents

A urine sample was also taken and confirmed that the woman had used marijuana.

However, the judge was not convinced there was any evidence that the woman's driving ability was impaired.

In his decision, the judge said he was left with several unanswered questions, including:

  1. What signs of impairment would one expect to see in someone who has been using marijuana?
  2. How long after using marijuana would you expect to see these signs and how long would they last?
  3. Can the results of drug evaluation tests taken over 1½ hours after the time of driving be reliably related back to the time the woman was stopped?
  4. Was the woman's performance in some of the tests an indication of poor balance or poor co-ordination?

On the other hand, the judge found there was plenty of evidence to suggest the woman was not impaired, noting:

  1. The officer did not observe any problems with her driving as she came to the check stop, when she was directed into the check stop or when she was directed to drive out of the line of cars to a nearby parking lot.
  2. She had no problems understanding the officer or answering his questions and did not slur her speech.
  3. She was able to provide him with her licence without any problems and had no difficulty following the officer's instructions or getting out of her vehicle.
  4. When he asked her to take her hand off her vehicle and step away from it, she did so without problem. She did not have to hold on to anyone or anything for balance and after he handcuffed her, she had no problems walking to his police car and getting into the back seat.
  5. She was polite and co-operative with the officer.

The judge added he was not sure how the finger-to-nose test and the walking heel-to-toe test related to one's ability to drive a car.

"I would have appreciated some evidence as to how these observations related to the accused’s ability to drive a motor vehicle," the judge said.

Ultimately, the judge said he was left with reasonable doubt on the charge and the woman was acquitted.

The prosecutor on the case told CBC News that Crown lawyers were still deciding whether to appeal.


The same thing will happen in WA state if 502 passes with it's DUI law in it "a judge familiar with marijuana and it's lack of serious impairment will demand proof and the state can't actually give proof" only propaganda and hyperbole.

Goldman Sachs owns both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney and Romney will serve the wishes of Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, the Military-Industrial-Complex, and the Pharmacutical-Medical-Insurance-Complex just the same as Barack Obama has for the past 3+ years.

Whichever candidate becomes President of the United States in 2012, they will be owned by Goldman Sachs and they will do the bidding of Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, the Military-Industrial-Complex, and the Pharmacutical-Medical-Insurance-Complex regardless of whatever campaign promises they made to the American voters.
