Vote My participation in POETRY FOR PEACE CONTEST / U.N.

Cascade of memoires 


Shade teardrops fell down the eyes, 
Caressing the memoires of a moisture future. 


Though the thys to the upstanding sky 
Yelled for the loneliness of an angel 
Who begged for peoples' healing. 


Wrinkles, same the hectares of cedars 
Blowing the windy silence far away, 
Doves and pigeons wounded in an open of boundaries sky.…

If conflicts of interest hurt our credibility, why are always dealing with them?

As calls to the Society of Professional Journalists ethics hotlines have come in over the past year, it’s clear to me one area of ethics has distanced itself from the rest in terms of concerns, questions and complaints. That is conflicts of interest.



While much that needs to be said on this subject can be found in the “Act Independently” section of the SPJ Ethics Code, the concept of remaining independent from outside influences seems to evade more and more journalists these days.… Continue

The same species

     Europe is all about diversity and non-discrimination in any way. However, the problem arises when you have small traditional countries that don’t wish to change anything in their society and culture and want things to stay as they are, but still want to progress in the next century with those same beliefs. Ever… Continue

It's a colorful world

       I have always lived in my birth country and despite all the problems we have here I simply can’t imagine myself living or wanting to live anywhere else. For me this small comfortable piece of land, no matter how hopeless it may seem it is sometimes, this is home. I don’t travel much, mainly because of the bad economic state that our society has been facing, well, ever since we became an independent country. Also because up until very recently we could not leave the country so easily…

Went to the cinema three times this week...

...two of the movies might very well interest you!

 

"The Ambassador"

 

When was the last time a documentary about poor Africa sold out a large cinema in pre-premiere? (In fact, when was the last time you considered if to watch a documentary about poor Africa or not since your TV channel scheduled it for just about when you got home from work or about 1½ hours after you planned to go to sleep?) Mads Brügger has done something really crazy with his…

If you go by bike

      Recently I noticed that there is a huge difference between countries concerning transportation. My personal favorite is my bike, my feet or public transport in the winter. The thing that most people would say is, yes, I do not own a car because I have no money, but I do have a driving license I am just having…

Knocking at Schengen door with invisible bacteria Editorial

On the 1st of January 2007, Romania became a member state of the European Union. Former Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn himself was saying that Romania’s accession was a political decision rather than one mainly resulting from the fulfilment of entry criteria. Since then, the EU has learnt its lesson and has given up accepting any new members on pre-set dates, but only when the applicant is truly and fully prepared. It is also true that other states that had joined the bloc before Romania…

The Kanun

The Kanun (or Kanuni in its defined form in Albanian) is a set of traditional Albanian laws. It was first codified in the 15th century but the use of it has been outspread much earlier in time. It used under that form until the 20th century, and revived recently after the fall of the communist regime in the early 1990s. Although Kanuni is attributed to the Albanian prince Lekë Dukagjini, the rules evolved over time as a way to bring laws and rule to these lands. The code was divided…
