Pilotii nostrii inca zboara

In cele doua filmulete se vad cum se antreneaza pilotii pe care (inca) ii mai avem


Cand ploua merg la piscina..BTR 82

Nici 9 mm nu e ce a fost

Fostul premier al Romaniei Adrian Nastase a decis sa-si puna capat zilelor. A ales un revolver de 9 mm cu care s-a impuscat in gat. Se pare ca a intervenit un politist si astfel rezultatul nu a fost cel dorit.

Oricum pun si eu o intrebare intrebatoare:

– cum e posibil sa te impusti cu un revolver de 9 mm si sa scapi asa usor?

Altii insa pun intrebari mult mai pertinente:

conform declaratiilor si a schemelor prezentate pana acum (nici o fotografie, radiografie, nimic), glontul angajat pe o traiectorie ascendenta, de la stanga la dreapta, « a ricosat » de cartilagiul tiroidian (marul lui Adam, in limbaj profan), indreptansu-se spre clavicula, de unde a mai ricosat inca o data, provocand rana de iesire. Acum, nu sunt medic legist, nu am vaste cunostinte balistice, dar sunt printre altele si medic si am facut armata : ingaduiti-mi sa ridic din sprancene cand un glont de Smith & Weston, indiferent de calibru, « ricoseaza » de marul lui Adam in loc sa-l spulbere si-si schimba directia cu aproape 90 de grade.”

1913 Romania in the Second Balkan War (Balkan Wars) – Pathé film – fragment

„Film produced by Pathé, romanian film operator Ion Voinescu, in the summer of the year 1913.
The cinematographic document was produced in the Second Balkan War in the summer (probably in july) of 1913, during the military campaign of Romania against Bulgaria.
In this war there were no fights between the romanian and the bulgarian army.
The romanian army invaded Bulgaria from three directions, advance quickly up to 8 km from Sofia where the army was stoped by king Carol I to avoid the completet humiliation of bulgarians (the main army corp stationed in Orhanie-Botevgrad and Plevna-Pleven) without any resistance, forcing the bulgarian goverment to ask for peace. This military action ended the Second Balkan War and the peace was signed on 28 of july (or 10 august after adopting the gregorian calendar in Romania on 1 of april 1919) in Bucharest (the Treaty of Bucharest 1913).
The romanian army suffered about 1600 cholera casualties (deaths). This was the opportunity for developing and implementing the anticholeric mass vacination by profesor doctor Ion Canatacuzino. The romanian soldiers were vaccinated in Bulgaria limiting the number of human losses (in the medical literature – the great romanian experience). Some of the romanian soldiers were burried in Bulgaria and many of their graves were destroid during the Great War (first world war).
The military campaign was initiated by the romanian government and the romanian king Carol I to defeat Bulgaria, to end the Second Balkan War and to gain for Romania (the city of Silistra was taken in mai 1913) the territory situated in the south of Dobrogea on the line Turtucaia-Tutrakan to Ecrene-Ekrene), a problem unsolved (from the romanian point of view) at San Stefano and at Berlin Conference in 1878.
The film is made in Dobrogea in the zone of Caraomer (Negru Voda) and Dobrici (Bazargic) as is written in the film (the main operational direction of the 5-th romanian army).
The principal themes in disscusion are: the back front activities, the military operations and the cinematographic techniques.
In the first part of the film is presented the company of captain Hristodulo riding on bicycles (Steyr? bicycles), armed with Steyr-Mannlicher 1893/1895 rifles. Using bicycles increasd speed and range for infantry (up to 100 km per day).
Second filming shows the baking of breads in Caraomer (Negru Voda in Dobrogea). We can see the „new ” ovens, five of them, and the personnel (civilians and military). In a scene we can see also an sanitary. The bread is prepared in wooden recipients and it is transported from that zone to the ovens.
Other images are from Dobrici where the artillery was stationed. We can see the camp, cavalry, an officer writing an note and handing it to an inferior to be transmitted. 
After that, in a few seconds we can see military at sea coast (probably Balcic) and muslim officials, romanian officers on board of an romanian ship.
Next images presents an cavalry corp with an flag.
After that an group of 8 officers, which includes general Ioan Culcer, the commander of the 5 romanian army in Dobrogea is presented. The officers are studying the plans on field. We see next cavalry and field artillery. The guns are Krupp model 1904, caliber 75 mm, 6 horses and 4 gunmen. 
As cinematographic techniques we can see the imobile camera technique but we see also moving arround the vertical axe of the camera, the ensamble view and the general view (the film operator was an profesional – in this case, from ANF source we know that the film operator was Ion Voinescu”

A fictitious explanation of the origin of this phrase occurs in the 1994 movie Forrest Gump. During his capricious run, an enthusiastic fan running alongside him points out to Forrest that he has just stepped in a pile of dog feces. When Forrest replies, „It happens,” the fan replies, „What, shit?”, to which Forrest replies, „Sometimes”. The fan is then unwittingly inspired to create the „Shit Happens” bumper sticker.

Drumul spre casa

„Am luptat pe front pînă în noiembrie 1944, cînd ţara românească a fost eliberată”, zice bătrînul Mahu, cu ochii adînciţi în trecutul celui mai dramatic an din experienţa vieţii sale. „Pe urmă a fost ordinul statului major sovietic ca basarabenii care luptau în armata română să fie eliberaţi ca să se întoarcă acasă”, continuă să povestească dînsul. A fost o amăgeală. Pentru că după „trîmbiţarea” ordinului de eliberare a basarabenilor din armata română şi întoarcerea la baştină s-a început adevărata tragedie a celor care au luptat pe frontul românesc pentru eliberare. „Au ieşit basarabenii din armata română, dar pe o parte din ei sovieticii i-au luat prizonieri. I-au încărcat în eşaloane şi i-au dus în gulagurile staliniste. Unii s-au întors acasă peste 10-12 ani, iar alţii au rămas să zacă acolo. În acelaşi timp, o altă parte din basarabenii care au fost eliberaţi din armata română şi care s-au pornit acasă au fost trimişi direct pe frontul sovietic.Iar a treia parte din ei nu au fost prinşi imediat, dar de ce? – pentru că atunci cînd s-a rupt frontul, ca ei să scape, lepădau hainele şi rămîneau în cămaşă şi izmene, mai luau o sapă şi o greblă în mîini şi în acest fel ajungeau acasă. Dar nu pentru multă vreme, pentru că erau prinşi peste o săptămînă – două, apoi mobilizaţi şi trimişi pe front. Şi, vasăzică, de pe teritoriul Moldovei au fost mobilizaţi 400000 de bărbaţi, luaţi pe linia întîi a frontului, incluşi în armata sovietică, fără pregătire militară. Vă dau un exemplu, din raionul Străşeni, în armata sovietică au fost mobilizaţi circa 6000 de bărbaţi, dintre care, după sfîrşitul războiului, s-au întors 2000 şi aceea în mare parte invalizi. Aceasta a fost situaţia Moldovei”, zice Ion Mahu oftînd.”
