M-am tot întrebat în ultimul timp dacă politeţea poate fi confundată cu flirtul.

După un experiment destul de lung am ajuns la concluzia că da. Ca om de ştiinţă ar fi trebuit să mă mulţumească acestă constatare, dar nu, am decis să încerc să văd de ce.

Prima ipoteză

Luptătorul anticomunist Vasile Paraschiv a refuzat, luni, distincţia Steaua României în grad de cavaler, pe care i-o înmânase preşedintele Traian Băsescu, menţionând că refuză primirea acesteia "de la un comunist la fel ca toţi ceilalţi care ne-au condus ţara de la Revoluţie".

Preşedintele Traian Băsescu a înmânat unor personalităţi culturale şi artistice româneşti, luni, la Cotroceni, o serie de distincţii, printre cei decoraţi aflându-se Radu Beligan, Nicolae Manolescu, Mariana Nicolesco, Lucian Pintilie, Marin Moraru, alături de care a fost decorat cu "Ordinul naţional Steaua României în grad de Cavaler", luptătorul anticomunist Vasile Paraschiv.

Ordinele au fost înmânate de şeful statului celor decoraţi, prezenţi la Cotroceni, printre ca...

The Value of Useless Studies


by George Francis Fitzgerald




It is rather surprising that Prof. Ayrton should indulge in covert sneers at Universities for devoting themselves to useless studies. It certainly ill becomes one whose life is bound up with electrical science, which is of such recent growth that nobody can pretend to forget how it owes its origin to those who studied it while useless. If Universities do not study useless subjects, who will? Once a subject becomes useful, it may very well be left to schools and technical colleges, to patent-mongers, and the trade. Mr. Bury is, on the other hand, mistaken in two respects. That a subject is useless is hardly worth considering as a recommendation for its being made compulsory on students....

Naples 26th of May a normal day, nothing was announcing the fact that humanity, solidarity, common sense and all other values that make us humans better than an ordinary animal were on holiday.

The local Mafia decides that some old debts have to be settled. They get their guns, their vespas and go to work. In the process two bystanders got hit. Up to now nothing is out of normal.
What happens next is shocking (see video). Nobody in the crowd tries to call an ambulance, tries to comfort the dying man or the distressed wife. A lot of people would speculate on the nationality or the ethnicity of the person. They should and are irrelevant in this situations.

After this all the nice things penciled by philosophers and humanists about the kindness, ...

To whom it may concern


To whom it may concern,

I let you know I am dead.

Do not be sad or worried.

My body is almost healthy

Is just my soul that died...

I may still know of Fortran

But do not ask of beauty

Or other things of heart.

Do not ask how am I?

But you can ask what is wrong with my MPI?

Do not be sad or worried.

Is just my soul that died...
