Inspiratie pentru teoreticieni dintr-o carte de copii

Dintr-o carte de copii: o poveste care poate inspira teoreticieni maturi :-))
"In our world, time is becoming unruly. Some seconds, some minutes, some hours last longer than others. Some are shorter. We do not know how this is happening, but this is happening. The fabric of time is beginning to tear, and when it tears, the past pokes through, and sometimes the future, too. You have heard of the time tornadoes that have struck this city, and yesterday you were caught in a time trap. So far these things are small enough, but they are signs, signs that time as we know it may be coming to an end." (Jeanette Winterson, "Tanglewreck" - Bloomsbury Publishing, NY 2006)

"West of the Moon, East of the Sun"... J. R. R. Tolkien

“Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Lacheii guvernului hingheresc si cacealmaua cu somatul ambasadorilor

CEA MAI NOUA GASELNITA a unei maini de neica nimeni, lachei "responsabili civic" (or so they say) ai guvernului hingheresc - cuprinsi mai nou de febra comunicatelor internationale - someaza ambasadele europene sa-si potoleasca cetatenii care, alaturi de activistii romani, se opun abuzurilor guvernamentale in privinta cainilor strazii, intetite dupa suspendarea, de catre Curtea de Apel Bucuresti, a normelor de aplicare a legii uciderii. Din nefericire pentru acest grupuscul ("IREC") umflat de slava desarta pina la punctul de a se sparge, scrisoarea este o cacealma de toata jena. Daca statul roman considera ca numitii cetateni europeni straini au intreprins ceva ilegal, sa faca bine atunci si sa le intenteze procese, formale, cu toata rigoarea. Insa statul roman (in acest context particular, guvernul hingheresc) NU o face TOCMAI pentru ca initierea unor asemenea procese - despre care se poate, evident, astepta ca vor fi intens mediatizate de aparatorii legali (straini si acestia) intr-o Europa anti-canicid - ar fi o mutare cistigatoare pentru cei ce se opun epidemiei de cruzime impotriva animalelor din Romania. Guvernul hingheresc nu numai ca nu are nici un caz, ci nu poate purta un proces cu numitii cetateni straini fara ca intreaga abundenta de abuzuri guvernamentale impotriva cainilor si oamenilor deopotriva sa fie scoasa la vedere de reprezentantii legali ai acuzatilor - care in mod sigur vor avea o expertiza profesionala bogata, studiaza serios... si nu plagiaza!

Beyond Energy, Matter, Time and Space

Beyond Energy, Matter, Time and Space
George Johnson in NY Times, 7/21/2014
"Reviewing Dr. Tegmark’s book in The New York Times Book Review, the mathematician Edward Frenkel noted that only a small part of the vast ocean of mathematics appears to describe the real world. The rest seems to be about nothing other than itself. That purity is part of its appeal."

Brasov Appeals Court suspends methodological norms too!

BRASOV Appeal Court follows in the footsteps of the Appeal Court in Bucharest and suspends a series of methodological norms for the "killing law"...
Doesn't look like good news for ASPA, Bancescu, Oprescu and the like...

An injured kid facing the killing law and abuses perpetrated by Bucharest civil servants

THE KID INJURED in a car accident by Romania's aggressive canicide mastermind Razvan Bancescu (ASPA manager) sits in front of Bucharest City Hall (image source), and asks Sorin Oprescu (Bucharest mayor) why the City still uses the services of Bancescu, given the abuses he committed. Of course, the chances that Oprescu would provide an answer to her are dim, the mayor being himself a rabid supporter of the killing law. The recent injunction issued by an appeal court is ignored by ASPA's private dog catchers - the killing goes on, while the animal activists are insulted, punched, assaulted and threatened with death by civil servants.  TWEET!

Animal cruelty alert: documenting the horrible conditions in Romanian public animal shelters. Injunction issued by appeal court ignored by many local governments

FOUR PAWS International / Vier Pfoten: shocking video documenting the horrible conditions in Romanian public animal shelters...43 shelters have been visited in the period between March and May 2014... None of them conformed to the law... Dead dogs in the shelter... overcrowded kennels... injured and ill dogs... and appalling hygiene standard in all of them...It is high time to change these conditions!...  In Romanian - here. Note that the killing continues despite the injunction issued by appeals court, ignored by many local governments!

EU Reporter - The brutal killing of dogs in Romania

HIGHLIGHTS: The picture was horrible... Romanian authorities have not good will to stop this brutal killing... The reason is business...The payment for killing one dog is over 200 Euros... and they are interested to continue this process... The method is really cruel and unacceptable... violation of the Lisbon Treaty [according to which] animals are sentient beings... not effective... we need more European competences... Europe has to act...trying to have some regulations... what is going on is really a big shame for Europe... the court decision [suspending the norms of the killing law] was a positive sign for Romania, but unfortunately the government appealed the decision... when you hear a mayor of a capital in a EU member country saying I give a damn on a court decision, what's your feeling?...There a will from outside to so do something... We [EU] should stop saying it's not our responsibility... It's important that Romanian animal protectors get support by members of the European Parliament...

Un abuz pe zi - Oprescu, Bancescu si afaceri dubioase cu hingheri privati

Nu trece nici macar o zi fara sa se auda de noi abuzuri ale ASPA-Băncescu sub supervizarea primarului Oprescu... O mafie de tip comando angajata in intimidare si afaceri abjecte cu contractori hingheri privati, scuipaturi, pumni, amenintari cu moartea, atacuri cu crose la picioarele activistilor ... in special dupa anuntarea injunctiei Curtii de Apel ; totul pare manat de interese financiare, cu multi $$$$$$ din bani publici. O veste buna: mobilizarea observatorilor din strainatate, care se pare ca ii deranjeaza in mod extrem. Must see video!
