Vom scrie lunar pentru Katoikos.eu, o publicatie online recent pusa pe picioare la initiativa unui grup de experti. Abordam teme romanesti de interes european pentru un public interesat sa priveasca si din unghiuri diferite de cele cu care lucreaza presa occidentala. Se publica in engleza si in spaniola, dar si in romana – pe Dela0.ro
Semnalele de alarma trase de organizatiile ecologiste in cazul operatiunilor de exploatarea a gazelor de sist nu-i impresioneaza pe geologii romani care sustin oportunitatea valorificarii zacamintelor. In viziunea lor, pericolele pentru mediu si sanatatea oamenilor ar fi „chestiuni de domeniul basmelor”.
Sorin a lucrat 5 ani intr-un club cunoscut din Bucuresti ca barman, sef de bar si manager. Ignorarea normelor anti-incendiu era o realitate cotidiana. Dar nu era doar a clubului. Ea venea in egala masura din partea celor care faceau verificarile. Daca stingatoarele nu erau expirate, “securitatea la incendiu” era ca si bifata.
Ce merita retinut din noianul de zgomote si atitudini care inconjoara Piata Universitatii de la mijlocul lunii ianuarie? Ce trebuie inteles din zecile de proteste care au impanzit Romania? Merg in Piata de la inceputul evenimentelor. Am vazut acolo cum credinta neclintita in faptul ca “omul sfinteste locul” sufera acum o lovitura teribila. Iata de ce.
The business philosophy of the waste collector in Buzau – RER Ecologic Service, also part of the RER Group, formally managed until December 2004 by the Liberal Democrat deputy Cezar Preda – seems right out of commedia dell’arte. Despite a formal withdrawal from the company, Preda is said to keep controlling operations, as he is one of the masters to whom the current director, Liviu Mocanu, takes a bow.
Un medic si un marinar transformat in ziarist si-au refacut destinele la mii de kilometri departare de Romania. E o propozitie concisa, care exprima fapte concrete, dar nu in cautarea factualului se scriu randurile urmatoare, ci a motivelor care determina cel mai greu abandon dintre toate: al propriei tari.
Three dictatorships have left their mark on Romania in the past 80 years. Two of them are consistently covered in textbooks used to teach history in Romanian high schools. But the third dictatorship benefits of little exposure, although it encompasses one of the most dreadful events in Romanian recent history. An investigative effort undertaken by Dela0.ro follows the causes and explanations of this phenomenon.
Some 20 million euros have been spent in Bacau, through an ISPA program, partially co-financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, to create an efficient waste management system in the county residence and 22 adjoining villages. Among many unknowns, the only constant is the 600 tons of garbage daily swallowed by the current deposit. And the money dumped in the accounts of the “wise guys” in charge of technical assistance and project execution.
Roma traditions have turned into a resistance pillar in a structure no one wants to keep building on. The same type of phenomenon is affecting their language, very rich in dialects and synonyms. Just like the old crafts, Gypsy dialects tell the story of a stormy history. Nowadays, both language and traditions, which tell a story about ethnic normality, are at risk.
In Piata Universitatii, in spatiul unei crescande furii anti-sistem, acolo unde oamenii isi striga nemultumirea, in locul unde bataia poate erupe oricand, urmata de aburii usturatori ai gazelor lacrimogene, e posibila dragostea. Aceasta este povestea intalnirii a doua priviri, in cea de-a saptea seara a protestelor din centrul Bucurestiului.
