[ DESTINATII DE VIS ] Cape Kaliakra



 In drumul cu mașina către litoralul bulgăresc merită să vă opriți, pentru o oră sau două, la Cap Kaliakra, pentru a admira ruinele cetății medievale, rezervația naturală foarte valoroasă și, mai ales, un peisaj unic, datorat stâncilor de culoare roșiatică ce sunt înghițite de marea de un albastru ireal.

Marea Neagră capătă culori incredibile în zilele cu soare în această zonă din nordul Bulgariei. Capul Kaliakra este fâșia de pământ care intră în Marea Neagră de-a lungul a 2 km și are o altitudine de aproape 70 de metri. Se află la aproximativ 50 de km de Vama Veche și, ca să ajungeți acolo, de la Vama Veche mergeți în direcția Varna, apoi către orașul bulgăresc Kavarna și de acolo indicatoarele vă duc, după vreo 12 km, spre Cap Kaliakra.
 Se plătește o taxă de intrare modică,  ( noi am dat 3 leva de persoana , aproximativ 6.5 lei ) există o parcare destul de mare, dar vara este mereu plină. Atenție, este un vânt foarte puternic și soare, așa că protejați-vă de razele fierbinți și luați-vă apă la voi.


Capul Caliacra (în bulgară Калиакра - Kaliakra) este un monument al naturii din Dobrogea bulgărească (Cadrilaterul), cuprinzând o cetate medievală și o rezervație naturală.
Pe vremea dacilor se ridica aici o cetate numită Tirizis. Grecii au redenumit-o Kali Akra însemnând "bun adăpost" (față de vânturile din nord-est), denumire păstrată până în epoca bizantină și preluată de turci sub forma Celigra. În sec. al XIV-lea, Despotatul Dobrogei și-a stabilit aici capitala sa, în timp ce călugării au transformat peșterile din faleză în schit.


În anul 1396 cetatea a fost asediată de turci și salvată prin intervenția voievozilor munteni, dar în 1421 ea a fost cucerită și distrusă. Legenda locală spune că 40 de fecioare s-au aruncat de pe faleză în mare ca să nu fie prinse de turci. Cetatea a fost ruinată definitiv, cisternele fiind distruse în acest război și în cele care au urmat.
Între anii 1913-1916 și 1918-1940, capul a făcut parte din județul Caliacra, România. În anii 1930, naturalistul român Grigore Antipa a întemeiat aici o stațiune de cercetări zoologice marine a Institutului Bio-Oceanografic din Constanța, care după război a adăpostit un pluton de grăniceri bulgari și ale cărei ruine se mai văd încă la dreapta șoselei care duce la cetate, la un kilometru spre apus de aceasta.
În anii 1950 a fost instalat aici un radar militar al forțelor Pactului de la Varșovia (azi al forțelor NATO).

Capul Kaliakra face parte dintr-o rezervație naturală valoroasă, o zonă în care se întâlnesc specii rare de păsări și pești. Aici se pot vizita ruinele Cetății Kaliakra, ce datează din vremea dacilor și care a fost cucerită și distrusă de turci în secolul al XV-lea. Există și o legendă, conform căreia 40 de fecioare s-au aruncat atunci de pe stânci în mare, pentru a nu cădea pradă turcilor.

Merită să vizitați Capul Kaliakra, mai ales pentru peisajul încântător. Nuanțele de albastru ale Mării Negre, valurile care se izbesc cu forță de stâncile roșiatice, întinderea mării în orice parte privești, senzația de izolare, de depărtare și ruinele cetății formează un tablou perfect.

Foarte aproape de Capul Kaliakra se află și ferma de scoici Dalboka!

[ DOCUMENTAR ] Cristofor Columb – Epoca descoperirilor

În timpul secolelor XV și XVI, liderii mai multor națiuni europene au sponsorizat expediții în străinătate în speranța că exploratorii vor găsi mari bogății și terenuri vaste nedescoperite. Portughezii au fost primii participanți la acestă “cursă a descoperirilor.” Din anul 1420, mici nave portugheze, cunoscute sub numele de caravele, au împânzit coasta africană, transportând spre Europa mirodenii, aur, robi și alte bunuri din Asia și Africa.




Acesta este un film documentar despre exploratorul Cristofor Columb, europeanul care a făcut patru călătorii peste Oceanul Atlantic din Spania: în 1492, 1493, 1498 și 1502. Columb era hotărât să găsească o rută marină directă spre vest din Europa în Asia, ceea ce nu a realizat niciodată. În schimb, a dat accidental peste America. Deși nu a “descoperit” Lumea Nouă – milioane de oameni deja locuiau acolo – călătoriile sale au marcat un  început de secole de colonizare și cuceriri transatlantice.

[ DESTINATII DE VIS ] Templul din Aspendos



Templul din Aspendos este astazi cel mai bine conservat monument de acest tip al lumii antice, un poem inghetat in piatra, care poate gazdui pana la 7.000 de persoane.






Istoric:
Acum urmeaza partea aia cu scurt istoric despre care va spuneam la inceput. Daca nu va place istoria, cititi cu ochii inchisi :))
Orasul a fost fondat de catre greci. A fost ocupat de catre Alexandru cel Mare, in momentul in care au refuzat sa plateasca dari catre acesta, dupa care a fost cedat romanilor. Daca grecii au pus accent pe artele frumoase, muzica, pictura, teatru, romanii au schimbat putin mersul lucrurilor cu artele mai crude, adica luptele cu gladiatori. Aceasta este varianta scurta, scurta. Nu avea rost sa va aglomerez „citeala” cu ani si amanunte, pe care oricum nici eu nu le-am tinut minte.
Aspendos este renumit pentru 3 lucruri: apeductul roman, care la inaltimea sa de sute de metri, transporta (pe vremea romanilor), apa de la kilometri distanta, teatrul roman care este al treilea ca marime din Europa si cel mai mare din Asia Mica, si cel mai mare centru de fabricare a bijuteriilor din Turcia. Pe primele doua le-am vazut, fabrica de bijuuri, ba. 


Pentru vizitarea teatrului roman, intrarea se face cu bilete sub forma de cartele, ca la metrou. Nu stiu cat au costat (biletele, pt carcotasi) pt ca intrarea a fost inclusa in pretul excursiei.
Teatrul roman este unul dintre cele mai bine conservate teatre antice din lume si aici se desfasoara inca spectacole. Constructia sa a fost ordonata de catre imparatul Marcus Aurelius si locul ales a fost coasta unei coline. Este renumit pentru acustica deosebita. Aceasta s-a obtinut prin saparea in forma concava a bancilor de piatra ale amfiteatrului, la nivelul picioarelor. Locul unde este asa zisa scena, pe vremea romanilor, era mai adanc cu 3 metri, a fost inaltat intre timp, mai aproape de vremurile noastre. A fost folosit pe rand ca teatru, fortareata, caravansaray, palat. Datorita acestor multiple utilizari, structura sa a suferit modificari aduse de catre arhitectii/constructorii vremurilor respective.
Impresii:
Am ajuns acolo pe la ora 11, erau deja 200 de grade, nici un nor si foarte multi elevi. Ghidul ne-a explicat ca statul turc are un program gratuit, pentru elevi si studenti, de vizitare/invatare despre istoria tarii. Tot respectul pt asta.
Am intrat, ghidul ne-a dat cateva informatii, pe care in cea mai mare parte vi le-am spus, iar apoi ne-a lasat 30 min sa vizitam de capul nostru. Binenteles ca am urcat pana sus la arcade, destul de greu pt ca treptele era inegale, tocite lucios si alunecos. De sus privelistea a fost minunata, mi-am inchipuit cum s-ar auzi un spectacol de opera acolo sau o lupta intre gladiatori si leii tinuti in cusca nemancati de saptamani (asa ne-a spus ghidul, cruzime la maxim). Blocurile de piatra, granit, calcar din care a fost construit, aveau culori si structuri diferite. A rezultat un tot mozaicat, pe care o sa-l vedeti in fotografii. Jumatatea de ora a trecut foarte repede, eu era inca cocotata la nivelul galeriilor, de unde am coborat in pasul strengarului.

Aspendos or Aspendus was an ancient Greco-Roman city in Antalya province of Turkey. The it is located seven kilometers notheast of cenral Serik. Aspendos is the third largest after the city of Perge and Sida in Pamphylia. Presently, Aspednos is famous for its impressive Roman Theater, the best preserved in Asia Minor. The theater was constructed in the 2nd century AD by the architect Zeno during the reign of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius in 161-180 AD on the south-east slope of the hill on which the ancient city was developed. 
 

[ DOCUMENTAR ] Țesătura universului – Ce este spațiul?

Filmul documentar Țesătura universului – Ce este spațiul? este excepțional atât din punctul de vedere al expunerii clare a informațiilor, cât și din punctul de vedere al modului în care se utilizează grafica video în vederea facilitării înțelegerii acestor informații și pentru a le face cât mai accesibile.



 Fizicianul Brian Greene ne dezvăluie un… “secret”: “Ne-am înșelat cu toții. Percepțiile noastre de timp și spațiu ne-au dus în eroare. O mare parte din ceea ce credeam că știm despre Universul nostru – faptul că trecutul s-a întâmplat deja și că viitorul e ceva ce va fi, faptul că spațiul este doar un vid gol, că universul nostru este singurul univers care există – toate acestea ar putea fi greșite.”



Documentarul face conexiuni foarte importante între teorii, experimente cu rezultate surprinzătoare și metafore imaginative deosebite, care îl fac unul dintre cele mai bine realizate filme din domeniul fizicii moderne. Chiar dacă la școală nu ați fost printre “fanii” fizicii, acest film vă va captiva, cu siguranță.

[ DOCUMENTAR ] Wilhelm Reich – Dreptul omului de a ști

Această Wilhelm Reich Wilhelm Reich   Dreptul omului de a știbiografie introductivă despre doctorul Wilhelm Reich a fost produsă de către Fundația “Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust” în 2002, atât ca deschidere a Muzeului Wilhelm Reich, cât și ca un instrument educațional pentru un public mai larg. Documetarul oferă o privire de ansamblu asupra vieții incredibile și operei unice a lui Reich.
Compus din fotografii de arhivă și imagini filmate, plus animații de calculator, această biografie nu este concepută ca un substitut pentru opera lui Wilhelm Reich, ci mai degrabă ca o introducere ușor de înțeles, pas cu pas, în viața sa, precum și în munca de cercetare a energiei orgonice.

Plăcerea de a trăi și plăcerea orgasmului sunt identice. Anxietatea orgasmică extremă este baza fricii de viață. Wilhelm Reich
De asemenea, filmul documentar descrie, succint, campania sistematică de distrugere a muncii lui Wilhelm Reich de către autoritățile americane, săvârșită de Food and Drug Administration, care a ordonat arderea tuturor lucrărilor din biblioteca și laboratorul savantului. Doctorul Wilhelm Reich a murit în închisoare la 3 noiembrie 1957, în condiții suspecte, cu o zi înainte să fie eliberat condiționat. Administrația penitenciarului a refuzat efectuarea autopsiei.

“When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.”
- Jack Handy



Just because your interview may be scheduled for Casual Friday, it doesn’t mean that you can show up in jeans and an untucked shirt. Regardless of the job you’re applying for, it’s important to dress for success by wearing a subdued suit and tie with a minimal amount of bodacious bling. Conversely, it’s also important not to overdress. Waltzing into your interview looking like the Monopoly Man may make your prospective employer think that you’re failing to take the process seriously. Play it safe and leave your top hat and tails at home.

In today’s digital age, it’s nearly impossible to get away with lies and embellishments on your resume, so don’t even bother trying to pump yourself with fabricated claims. After all, it’s only a matter of time before a new employer discovers that you didn’t actually win eight gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games or that you didn’t personally broker a Mid-East cease fire agreement during your summer vacation. Lying during your interview can be grounds for dismissal later on -- and that’s no lie.

No one wants to hire a malcontent, so be prepared to bite your tongue when the interviewer invariably asks you about your previous employer. Speaking negatively about your last job -- even if it involved sorting monkey feces or taste-testing expired dairy products -- will give the interviewer the impression that you’re a difficult person to get along with.
 08. Badmouthing your Past Employer


No one wants to hire a malcontent, so be prepared to bite your tongue when the interviewer invariably asks you about your previous employer. Speaking negatively about your last job -- even if it involved sorting monkey feces or taste-testing expired dairy products -- will give the interviewer the impression that you’re a difficult person to get along with.

Everyone wants to make a good first impression, but there’s a fine line between developing a good rapport with your interviewer and becoming too familiar. Always address your interviewer by their last name, unless directed otherwise, and treat them in a courteous manner. Bear in mind that a job interview also isn’t the place to try out your stand-up routine, so ditch your opening line about the best thing about a redneck family fight (it’s the make-up sex, of course), and concentrate instead on coming across as a serious and responsible employee. There will be plenty of time to make jokes in the lunch room once you actually land the job.
07. Being too Chummy

Contrary to popular belief, a job interview isn’t all about you. It’s also a chance to learn about the ins and outs of the company you’re hoping to join. Be prepared to zip your lips for minutes at a time or otherwise you may come across as domineering and needy. It’s also important to be careful about the subjects you discuss. Although your interviewer will be interested in hearing about your past accomplishments and aspirations, they probably don’t need to hear about your bearded lady fetish or the fact that you experience a burning sensation every time you pee.
06. Saying too much

Chances are you’ll have several days to prepare for your interview, so make the most of your time by learning about the company. If it's publicly traded, read the most recent 10-Q filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. If the company is privately held, start with its website. The time before your interview is also the perfect occasion to update your resume, so take the time to weed out all of those references who are currently serving time in a federal correctional institution.
05. Not knowing enough about the employer

The time before your interview is also the perfect occasion to update your resume, so take the time to weed out all of those references who are currently serving time in a federal correctional institution.

Just as you should never ask a woman her age, it’s also considered to be in bad taste to discuss salary and benefits until you’ve been offered the job. Bringing up the topic too soon will convince the interviewer that you have little interest in the job beyond a monthly paycheck and your standard two weeks of vacation time.
04. Discussing benefits too soon

Bringing up the topic too soon will convince the interviewer that you have little interest in the job beyond a monthly paycheck and your standard two weeks of vacation time.





Only a small percentage of candidates ever make it to the interview stage, so try to relax and enjoy the ride. Be prepared to be grilled for up to an hour and avoid glancing at your watch or asking how long the interview will last, since it gives the impression that you're late for a far more important date.
03. Rushing the Interview

Be prepared to be grilled for up to an hour and avoid glancing at your watch or asking how long the interview will last, since it gives the impression that you're late for a far more important date.






Modesty may be a virtue, but it won’t help you land a job. Your interview is the chance for you to shine, so shelve your humility and highlight your strengths and accomplishments -- just make sure to focus on those accomplishments that are most relevant to the position for which you’re applying. After all, the interviewer probably doesn’t have to know about your ability to shotgun a dozen beers or the fact that you’re the state’s largest owner of Michael Bolton memorabilia.

After all, the interviewer probably doesn’t have to know about your ability to shotgun a dozen beers or the fact that you’re the state’s largest owner of Michael Bolton memorabilia. 


A job interview isn’t a party, so arriving casually late won’t score you any points. Make sure to show up 10-15 minutes in advance and notify a receptionist upon your arrival. Getting to your interview early will allow you to familiarize yourself with a foreign environment, and if you’re lucky, the waiting room may even have magazines from this decade.
01. Arriving Late

A job interview isn’t a party, so arriving casually late won’t score you any points. Make sure to show up 10-15 minutes in advance and notify a receptionist upon your arrival. Getting to your interview early will allow you to familiarize yourself with a foreign environment, and if you’re lucky, the waiting room may even have magazines from this decade.

Asemanarea dintre corida si vin


In ceea ce priveste vinul, sunt intru totul de acord cu Hemingway si il inteleg in intregime.
"Ca in toate artele, placerea consumului creste odata ce incepi sa te pricepi la arta respectiva, insa daca merg deschisi la minte si simt doar ce simt, nu ceea ce cred ca ar trebui sa simta, oamenii vor sti de prima data daca le plac sau nu luptele cu tauri. S-ar putea sa nu le placa deloc, indiferent daca este o lupta buna sau nu, si atunci orice argument este irelevant, caci pentru ei ramane valabil doar acela ca luptele cu tauri sunt evident rele din punct de vedere moral. E la fel ca si cu oamenii care nu beau vin, desi poate ca le-ar placea, pentru ca nu e bine sa faci asta.


Comparatia asta cu bautul de vin nu este chiar atat de fortata pe cat pare. Vinul este unul din cele mai civilizate lucruri din lume si, in acelasi timp, unul din acele produse naturale care au fost aduse la perfectiune si probabil ca, dintre toate produsele adresate exclusiv simturilor pe care le poate cumpara cineva, vinul ofera cea mai larga varietate de specialitati facute pentru placerea si aprecierea noastra. Poti invata despre vinuri si-ti poti educa cerul gurii cu mare placere o viata intreaga, timp in care cerul gurii devine tot mai educat si mai capabil de a aprecia ce i se ofera, iar placerea ta creste constant, chiar daca intre timp rinichii iti slabesc, incepe sa te doara degetul mare de la picior, iti intepenesc incheieturile si in cele din urma, exact atunci cand ajunge sa-ti placa mai mult, ti se interzice sa te mai atingi de vin. Tot asa, ochiul, care la inceput este un instrument bun, sanatos, ajunge in timp - desi nu mai este la fel de puternic si este slabit si uzat din cauza exceselor - sa devina capabil de a-i transmite creierului o placere care creste constant, datorita acelei stiinte sau capacitati de a vedea pe care a capatat-o. Trupurile ni se uzeaza intr-un fel sau altul si murim, iar eu as prefera sa am un cer al gurii care sa-mi ofere placerea de a ma bucura cu totul de un Chateaux Margaux sau un Haut Brion, chiar daca excesul la care m-am dedat pentru a obtine un astfel de cer al gurii aduce un ficat care nu-mi da voie sa beau un Richebourg, Corton sau Chambertin, in loc sa am matele de fier ruginit, cum le aveam cand eram copil si toate vinurile, in afara de Porto, erau amare, iar sa bei insemna sa bagi in tine destul din orice te-ar face sa nu-ti mai pese. Important este, desigur, sa incerci sa eviti situatia in care vei fi nevoit sa te lasi cu totul de vin, asa cum in cazul ochilor este important sa nu orbesti. Insa lucrurile astea tin foarte mult si de noroc si nimeni nu poate ocoli moartea printrun efort cinstit si nici nu poate sti la ce-i va folosi la un moment dat o anumita parte din corpul sau pana nu ii e pusa la incercare.
Pare ca ne departam de subiectul luptelor cu tauri, insa ce vroiam eu sa spun este ca un om ale carui cunostere si educatie se dezvolta constant ar putea sa simta o placere infinita cand bea vin, asa cum placerea de a privi luptele cu tauri poate deveni cea mai importanta dintre maruntele pasiuni ale cuiva, insa cineva care bea - nu degusta, nu savureaza, ci bea pentru prima oara - vin va sti, chiar daca nu e interesat sau capabil sa deguste bautura, va sti deci daca efectul resimtit ii place sau, dimpotriva, nu-i ceva potrivit pentru el. Cand vine vorba de vin, cei mai multi dintre incepatori prefera vinurile vechi si dulci, precum si vinurile spumoase, ca sampania nu prea seaca sau un burgund spumos - le prefera pentru ca arata mai pitoresc; mai tarziu le vor da la o parte pe toate pentru un Grand crus de Medoc, chiar daca ar veni intr-o sticla simpla, fara eticheta, acoperita de praf sau panze de paianjen, lipsita de orice element pitoresc si adapostind in ea doar un vin cinstit si delicat, usor pe limba, racoros in gura si care te incalzeste dupa ce l-ai baut. Tot asa, in luptele cu tauri, o sa-i atraga mai intai lucrurile pitoresti, un paseo, culorile, mizanscena, cutitele si molinetes, matadorul care il atinge pe taur pe bot sau ii mangaie coarnele, toate lucrurile astea romantice, dar fara rost, care le plac spectatorilor. Se bucura sa-i vada pe cai protejati de plapumile alea, pentru ca datorita lor sunt scutiti de privelistile stanjenitoare, si aplauda toate manevrele precum cele pomenite mai sus. Mai tarziu, cand in cele din urma au invatat din experienta sa aprecieze adevaratele valori ale coridei, or sa caute adevarul si cinstea - nu trucurile, ci emotia si, mereu, clasicismul si puritatea cu care sunt executate toate acele suertes, si, asa cum se schimba si gustul pentru vin, n-or sa mai vrea dulcegarii, ci sa-i vada pe cai lipsit de protectie, astfel incat fiecare rana sa poata fi observata, si sa-i vada murind, nu suferind din cauza a ceva menit sa-i lase pe cai sa sufere, dar care, in acelasi timp, ascunde acea suferinta de ochii spectatorilor. Dar la luptele cu tauri, ca si cu vinul, o sa stii de la inceput daca iti plac sau nu, in functie de efectul lor asupra ta. Exista forme ale coridei care satisfac cele mai variate gusturi si daca nu-ti place nimic din toata lupta, nici ea, luata in sine, ca intreg, nici detaliile ei, atunci inseamna ca nu esti facut pentru asta. Desigur, pentru cei carora le plac aceste lupte ar fi mai placut daca aceia carora nu le plac nu ar simti nevoia sa le declare razboi sau sa finanteze incercarile de a le suprima doar pentru ca luptele nu le plac sau ii deranjeaza - dar asta ar insemna sa cerem pre amult si, oricum, orice manifestare capabila sa starneasca atata pasiune la iubitorii ei va starni o pasiune egala si la cei care o urasc."
- Ernest Hemingway - {Fragment din "Moarte dupa-amiaza"}

[ DOCUMENTAR ] Secretele ascunse ale banilor

Mike Maloney, prezentatorul seriei „Hidden Secrets of Money”, este un un orator de marcă, autor de bestseller, cercetător al istoriei monetare și investigator în privința aurului și argintului. Această serie de filme documentare oferă o perspectivă unică a istoriei banilor și rolul acesteia în economia de azi.
Cu misiunea de a ajuta pe toată lumea să obțină adevărata bunăstare, Mike ne arată ceea ce putem face astăzi ca să fim gata să înfruntăm viitorul. Scopul declarat al realizatorilor acestor documentare este ca lumea să realizeze că “prosperitatea poate fi obținută doar în condiții de libertate individuală, printr-o piață liberă și având la bază un sistem financiar solid și bine reglementat.”

De unde vine denumirea de leu românesc?

În secolul al XVII-lea, în statele românești circulau talerii olandezi (löwenthaler). Aceştia aveau gravat pe ei un leu. După ieșirea din uz a talerilor, numele de leu a fost păstrat ca termen generic pentru bani, iar în 1867 leul devenea unitatea monetară a Principatelor Unite. Cea mai veche monedă atestată pe teritoriul românesc e drahma de argint de 8 grame, emisă de orașul grecesc Histria în anul 480 î.Hr.
Pe 22 aprilie 1867 s-a stabilit ca monedă națională leul, având etalonul la 5 grame de argint și având 100 de submultipli, numiţi bani. Primele monede emise erau din bronz, de 1 ban, 2, 5 și 10 bani, bătute în Birmingham, Anglia.
În 1868, a fost emisă prima monedă românească din aur, cu valoarea de 20 lei. Din 1870 s-au bătut și monede de argint cu valoarea de 50 de bani (aşa-zisele „băncuțe”), 1 leu și 2 lei.
Banca Națională a României a fost înfiinţată pe 1 aprilie 1880, aceasta fiind singura abilitată să emită monedă de metal și hârtie. În 1947 a fost emisă bancnota de 5.000.000 lei, aceasta având cea mai mare valoare nominală din istoria României.
În 1947 s-a făcut denominarea, la un raport de 1 leu nou la 20.000 lei vechi. Paritatea leu-dolar era de 150 de lei pentru 1 dolar. În 1966 s-au emis monede și bancnote cu noua denumire a ţării, Republica Socialistă România, care au rămas în circulație până după 1989. Pe 1 iulie 2005, reforma monetară din România a schimbat leul vechi (ROL) cu cel nou (RON), 1 RON fiind egal cu 10.000 ROL. Cum România a intrat în Uniunea Europeană la începutul anului 2007, ar urma să treacă la moneda unică europeană, Euro, după 2016. (Sursa)
