Repostez un mesaj de pe Facebook despre o initiativa de reteritorializare dupa sterilizare, la Ploiesti. Ramin "cautiously optimistic" MC
"VICTORIE la Ploiesti! Victorie a dnei Carmen Arsene si a jurnalistului Eugen Cristescu. Citez: "Cele mai importante prevederi din Hotararea de Consiliu Local sunt: Cainii vor fi RETURNATI dupa sterilizare si vor avea statut de caini comunitari; (art.3 (6) a) „reteritorializare fiind intotdeauna solutia prioritara” (art.3 (8) d) Se interzice capturarea si cazarea cainilor reteritorializati (cu exceptia cazurilor in care acestia au devenit agresivi ori necesita ingrijiri medicale urgente) (art.3 (7) b) Cainii agresivi pot fi eutanasiati numai daca agresivitatea este constatata si confirmata de o comisie formata de reprezentantul primariei si reprezentantul unei Organizatii de Protectie a Animalelor si confirmata prin semnatura a minimum doi martori! (art.3 (8) a). Se recomanda insa eutanasia numai a cainilor bolnavi incurabil (art.3 (8) d). Eutanasia se va face doar in prezenta unui reprezentant ONG (cu exceptia cazurilor de forta majora dar cu notificarea prealabila a ONGului) (art. 3 (9)) Accesul reprezentantilor ONG in adapostul public este NEINGRADIT (art.7) Detinatorul de caine nesterilizat va plati la primarie o taxa anuala pentru fiecare caine nesterilizat precum si o taxa de reproducere pentru fiecare generatie de pui (art.6 (3)) Se infiinteaza o clinica mobila ce poate efectua sterilizari, tratamente de urgenta (art. 3 (12)) Cainii fara stapan vor fi sterilizati inclusiv prin cabinete care vor avea contract in acest sens cu Primaria (art.5) Pentru a facilita sterilizarea cainilor cu stapan am prevazut ca medicii ce contracteaza cu Primaria servicii de sterilizare pentru cainii fara stapan sa aiba obligatia de a percepe pentru acestia un tarif cel mult egal cu cel contractat cu Primaria pentru sterilizarea cainilor fara stapan. (art. 5 (9)) Se constituie Departamentul de Politie a Animalelor ce va fi format din 4 politisti locali ce vor fi instruiti in domeniul protectiei animalelor, iar in TOATE actiunile lor vor colabora cu reprezentanti ai ONG-urilor de protectie a animalelor, in baza unui protocol (art.11) Primaria, in colaborare cu Organizatiile de Protectie a Animalelor, va derula campanii de mediatizare a proiectului, de constientizare si educatie a populatiei, la necesitatea respectarii drepturilor animalelor, a raspunderii fata de animalul propriu etc. prin: implementarea de programe de informare si educare, inclusiv in unitatile de invatamant, amenajarea de afisaje stradale pentru promovarea adoptiilor si sterilizarii,d) organizarea bilunara de targuri de adoptii, tiparirea si impartirea de materiale informative in unitati de invatamant, parcuri, asociatii de proprietari, servicii publice (art.8) Toate cele bune, Carmen ARSENE" Va rog pe voi toti: duceti vestea pe grupuri!"

The Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Celibidache at a concert from 1971. Bolero, o interpretare magistrara si un comentariu iluminant
"He lives every note, he explained in his Musical Phenomenology that a musician is discovering the music every instant, the composer just makes a suggestion but the music is created in the interpretation, with a fresh first look approach, even though every thing was over rehearsed and the tempo more likely slower than most conductors so we could appreciate the complexity of the body of sound. He does not look upon the repetitions as reiterating or monotonous, every new frase is a fresh new start note by note and the build up in intensity is monumental, with total control over the volumes to be able to reach brilliantly the culmination, still with lower volumes than most directors. I have never heard any conductor do anything remotely like this. He explained that it occurs naturally in all music but mostly in Ravel we should try listen the super harmonics several octaves higher that we ignore but in the case of Ravel he generously writes some of them down for us, you can here some of those higher harmonies around minute 8:08 or 10:41 but they are happening all the time we don't hear them because of the microphones used in the recordings, the occur naturally in the concert hall so you had to see him live otherwise that was not his music. Ichi go ichi e was part of his philosophy. This is a once in a lifetime interpretation, a historic event. The greatest conductor in history! He used to receive 20 and 30 minutes of applause. And wouldn't mind the coughing or any noises in the hall, everything for him was a part of that unique instant. He had a very deep understanding of art and human emotions with a Buddhist inspiration, I had the good fortune to see him several times, the experience was electrifying, mystical. Thank you for sharing! Even though he would have never authorized it... he was vehemently opposed to recordings and electronic reproduction of music, imagine that! Today we mostly only hear electronically reproduced music in low quality digital audio in computer speakers and headsets which filter out all the harmonics, noises and also the emotion of life, into a beautifully wrapped present but empty. Our modern world has forgotten or never appreciated these concepts, we only have this moment. in most composer's lifetime before recordings began their music could only be heard once or twice, in a very special event, a concert! while today we can repeat it a hundreds times, fix it in our memory and then we lose the spontaneity of the first listening, the first love! we always compare it with what we've heard before, we already "know" it, when it should be like the discovery of a new landscape, an adventure, like you see on his expressions on every note. Today we buy low quality digitalized emotion, ones and zeros with no heart. Please study this man and his philosophy it's very important. One of the greatest minds of the 20th century. what is beauty? Truth, and Truth sets us free. Why do we feel emotion when we listen to beautiful music? Because we are experiencing the Truth." (commentary by Eduardo Torres)
