My lol pics- I made them!










is inteligence related to race?

James Watson, the Nobel-winning biologist said in an interview about the African inhabitants : "All our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really"


Can this be backed up with evidence?
I have further investigated the subject and found interesting opinions. My conclusion based on what I have read about is that if there are any significant IQ diferences, they are due to diferent gene development and environment pressure, this being observed also in countries with gaps between the poor and uneducated people and the rich and educated ones. School makes a diference. Education received at home makes a diference.
Poverty, the lack of water, food, clothing, any material resources, lack of power to work due to hunger and desease, they all keep many people from developing to their full potential, and not just in Africa.
The problem with all this mess is that it can not be oficially written that there is an inate intelligence diference between races, because that will lead to a new holocaust.
People cannot deal with the fact that we might be diferent BUT WE ALL HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS.
As Watson said in an attempt to explain what he meant : "This is not a discussion about superiority or inferiority, it is about seeking to understand differences, about why some of us are great musicians and others great engineers."
There are no two people alike on this planet, and that makes us UNIQUE.
My sugestion is: " LIVE, AND LET LIVE!

Hunger and World Poverty

www.poverty.com

"About 25,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes, according to the United Nations. This is one person every three and a half seconds, as you can see on this display. Unfortunately, it is children who die most often.

Yet there is plenty of food in the world for everyone. The problem is that hungry people are trapped in severe poverty. They lack the money to buy enough food to nourish themselves. Being constantly malnourished, they become weaker and often sick. This makes them increasingly less able to work, which then makes them even poorer and hungrier. This downward spiral often continues until death for them and their families.

There are effective programs to break this spiral. For adults, there are “food for work” programs where the adults are paid with food to build schools, dig wells, make roads, and so on. This both nourishes them and builds infrastructure to end the poverty. For children, there are “food for education” programs where the children are provided with food when they attend school. Their education will help them to escape from hunger and global poverty."

Atat de mare diferenta intre Est si Vest

Si cand spun asta ma refer doar la nemti intre ei. Diferente incredibile de umilinta, superioritate, zambete sincere si false, speranta si normalitate. Parca am fi noi si Europa. Iar cand vine vorba iar de ei si noi, asa de sensibili sunt nemtii la orice, incat nu cred ca ar rezista o zi cu umorul romanesc. Pai daca cumva indraznesti sa iei un neamt peste picior, prieten sau nu, nu te iarta cat traieste. Sa-si fi pierdut simtul umorului odata cu ridicarea nasului? Oricum, nu va puneti cot la cot cu nemtii la baut bere, fetele ma refer, ca va baga sub masa rapid nemtoaicele. Am ramas interzisa cand am vazut ca la orice intalnire amicala se da cu bere peste orice. Atata bere bauta de o fata nu am vazut in viata mea, iar cand vad ca toate beau bere ma intreb: oare vor sa fie acceptate de barbati in randul lor sau pur si simplu le place berea? Si daca e varianta a doua, atunci de ce in Romania femeile nu beau bere decat rar?

M-am apucat de pus intrebari existentiale

Daca imi raspunde careva poate iese si vreo statistica ceva.
Oricum eu sunt agnostica teista in cazul in care se intreba careva de unde m-a apucat asa deodata filozofarea. Si am ajuns la intrebarile despre viata, viitor si trecut, si degeaba ma tot framant eu ca n-au reusit altii mai intelepti ca mine sa raspunda la intrebarile astea, de unde oi reusi eu...

Mi-am pus contor...ca tot imi placea mie statistica:)

Asa ca de acum inainte pot sa vad cat de singura sunt pe aici....sau poate nu, cine stie, poate s-o fi ratacit careva pe aici....

comics

De curand am descoperit lumea fascinanta a comics-urilor. Nu o sa insir toate benzile cu care ma delectez, dar postez adresa unde puteti citi preferata mea.
http://www.marcellosendos.ch
Calvin & Hobbes, desi autorul nu mai are alte benzi noi, toate sunt atat de actuale si umorul cu care sunt presarate ma lipeste de fiecare data de monitor. Asa ciudat suna uneori expresiile americane traduse in romana:))

Store checking

Viata in departamentul de marketing poate sa fie si fun. Mai ales cand ma pune sefa sa ma joc de-a hotii si vardistii prin magazine, adica sa fac poze produselor din raft fara sa fiu prinsa de angajatii din raion. Pare simplu, dar sunt multi, si mai sunt si camerele video de luat in considerare. Asa ca e munca de detectiv particular dea dreptul.
Apoi vine o vreme cand ti se spune "cumpara produsul X" care evident ca se vinde numai intr-un anumit lant de magazine, dar nu ti se si spune care. Si apuca-te si plimba-te si cauta de nebuna, pana cand gasesti, sau nu, produsul mult dorit. Evident ca trebuie sa fie ceva obscur de gen detergentul de vase ORO, de care nu a auzit nimeni, angajatii nu stiu daca vand asa ceva, ambalajul e total plain si blended intre celelalte si cand ajungi acasa te doare capul de la atatea cautari.

De ce ma intreaba toata lumea daca ma mai intorc?

Pai ar fi cateva "mici" lucruri care m-ar face sa nu ma mai intorc, si o gramada de lucruri care ma fac sa vreau sa ajung cat mai repede acasa.
Azi incepem cu doua din cele pozitive pentru Germania.
De dimineata la radio au anuntat ca din cauza vremii reci(a se citi 3 grade afara) doua scoli din Niedersachsen (zona in care locuiesc) vor fi inchise azi, pe seama incalzirii centrale care nu functioneaza.
Cum ar fi aratat asta la noi? Ceva de genul: Parinti, imbracati-va mai gros copii azi ca iar nu avem caldura!
A doua e mai mult o peripetie prin care am trecut, si care m-a facut sa ma gandesc ca la noi nu s-ar fi intamplat asa ceva nici peste 10 ani. Venind de la discoteca intr-o seara, cu masina, am fost oprita de politie, dar nu oricum, ci in mers, m-au urmarit vreo 5 km, dupa care m-au tras pe dreapta intr-o benzinarie. De ce m-au urmarit atat? Pentru ca m-au vazut ca eram o femeie singura in masina si era intuneric afara si nu au avut alt loc public luminat mai devreme. Asa da!
Si asa de incheiere tre sa spun si una rea, ca sa fie egalitate.
Daca din greaseala, uitare sau lene, ajungi sa ai nevoie sa cumperi ceva duminica, GHINION. Tot e inchis, in afara de benzinarii. Si nici alea toate. Asa ca prima saptamana am luat tzapa, si am ramas nemancata!Si cand zic nimic, inseamna ca singura solutie a fost sa ma duc la restaurant, ca era singura sursa de mancare.
o sa mai revin cu altele
