Un discurs direct

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd – Australia

kevin-rudd1Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..

Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’
‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

Interesant, zic, dintr-un anumit punct de vedere. Din pacate discursul poate fi utilizat si de extremistii nostri drept credinciosi, asa cum am avut ocazia de curand sa aflu pe pielea mea.

Later Edit:
la Danut Manastireanu este un material inrudit.

Ma gandesc sa imi spal masina

13 feb.

zilele astea am observat ca pe masina s-a depus un strat considerabil de praf. Atat de gros incat daca arunc ceva seminte si le ud sunt mari sanse sa prina radacini.

dar dupa ce am privit la imaginile de mai jos ma mai gandesc totusi.

Prominent Baptist leader dies

6 feb.

cortsThomas Corts, former president of the Baptist-affiliated Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, in the United States, died suddenly on Wednesday, February 4. Corts was actively involved within the Baptist World Alliance since 1985. At the time of his death, he was a member of the BWA General Council, vice chair of the Commission on Baptist Heritage and Identity, and a member of the Study and Research Executive Committee and the Academic and Theological Education Workgroup. In remembering Corts, BWA President David Coffey said, “Tom was a great ambassador for the Baptist movement worldwide and a mentor to us all with his outstanding gifts of grace and wisdom.” Coffey stated that Corts “was a faithful friend and advocate of the Baptist World Alliance and we remember with appreciation how he served us with great distinction on numerous occasions.” Thomas Corts (far left) in 2007 with (from left to right) Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Neville Callam, BWA General Secretary, and Andrew Westmoreland, President of Samford University BWA General Secretary Neville Callam, in recalling his visit to the Beeson Divinity School at Samford University in September 2007, described Corts as “a distinguished Baptist leader and an outstanding educator” who was “a most humble and gracious host.” “Corts was a perceptive commentator on the church’s responsibility to nurture her young for Christian discipleship in both the private and public spheres,” said Callam. “We offer condolences to his wife, Marla, and their entire family.” Corts was president of Samford from 1983 until his retirement from that position in 2006, whereupon he was named president emeritus. The school had several noted achievements during Corts’ tenure. Among the highlights were the purchase of Samford’s London Study Centre, significant growth in the school’s endowment, construction of more than 30 campus buildings, and an increase in student enrollment. He was a former chairman of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). He also served as president of SACS, the American Association of Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities, and the Association of Baptist Colleges. After his retirement, Corts served as executive director of the International Association of Baptist Colleges and Universities, which represents 52 Baptist higher learning institutions. In 2007, he was appointed by former US President George W. Bush to coordinate US international education aid. A public memorial service is scheduled for Sunday, February 8, in the Leslie Stephen Wright Center Concert Hall on the Samford campus. Corts leaves his wife of 44 years, Marla, two daughters, and one son. He was 67 years old.

Puterea exemplului si exemplul puterii

Azi am observat si eu, ca multi alti utilizatori ca pe Google se intampla ceva ciudat. Dat fiind faptul ca eram pe fuga nu am stat sa analizez foarte mult. Dupa cateva ore (aproximativ 2) vine si explicatia. O postez ad extenso ca sa slujeasca de exemplu celor care cred ca sunt prea mari sau prea importanti sa recunoasca ca au gresit:

„This site may harm your computer” on every search result?!?!

1/31/2009 09:02:00 AM

If you did a Google search between 6:30 a.m. PST and 7:25 a.m. PST this morning, you likely saw that the message „This site may harm your computer” accompanied each and every search result. This was clearly an error, and we are very sorry for the inconvenience caused to our users.

What happened? Very simply, human error. Google flags search results with the message „This site may harm your computer” if the site is known to install malicious software in the background or otherwise surreptitiously. We do this to protect our users against visiting sites that could harm their computers. We maintain a list of such sites through both manual and automated methods. We work with a non-profit called to come up with criteria for maintaining this list, and to provide simple processes for webmasters to remove their site from the list.

We periodically update that list and released one such update to the site this morning. Unfortunately (and here’s the human error), the URL of ‘/’ was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and ‘/’ expands to all URLs. Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file. Since we push these updates in a staggered and rolling fashion, the errors began appearing between 6:27 a.m. and 6:40 a.m. and began disappearing between 7:10 and 7:25 a.m., so the duration of the problem for any particular user was approximately 40 minutes.

Thanks to our team for their quick work in finding this. And again, our apologies to any of you who were inconvenienced this morning, and to site owners whose pages were incorrectly labelled. We will carefully investigate this incident and put more robust file checks in place to prevent it from happening again.

Thanks for your understanding.

Update at 10:29 am PST: This post was revised as more precise information became available (changes are in blue). Here’s StopBadware’s explanation.

Exemplul puterii administrative:

Il vedeti cu totii la stiri de cateva zile: dintr-un depozit al armatei au disparut arme grele iar organele nu dau niciun comunicat. Nimic. Totul e la secret. Se cerceteaza. Ancheta este in lucru. Limbaj de lemn si baraje la iesirea din Bucuresti, de parca baietii umbla cu arsenalul dupa ei.
