Sant Jordi

Com que el dia 23 gairebé tothom parlarà de Sant Jordi, penjo el comentari un parell de dies abans, que feina feta no fa destorb, com deien abans i hom ara. A més a més, la nit anterior em tocarà anar a dormir tard atès algun visionari ha programat el partit Barça-Sevilla a les 10 de la nit, per TV3 (la meva? )Bé la seua, això sí.
En un país en el què es llegeix poc i es pensa menys -com a la majoria de països, d’altra banda-, no deixa de ser un petit miracle que la tossuda determinació d’un grup de persones facin possible espais de pensament, lectura i reflexió.
Sempre he estat un ferm defensor de l’acció, tan directa com calgui, i al mateix temps sempre he tingut el convenciment que cada acció ha de ser fruit d’una reflexió serena i intel·ligent que faci de cadascuna de les nostres accions un acte de sobirania individual i col·lectiva.
El nostre país no és el país somort ni adormit que podem llegir a les planes dels diaris o en els debats polítics de baixa volada. Ans el contrari. Catalunya viu un moment social sense precedents que ha de fer possible una transformació social, política i econòmica irrenunciable si volem un futur propi i independent. I si el país batega és, precisament, gràcies a la suma de voluntats que es manifesten i treballen molt més enllà del benefici individual o de l’acció interessada, partidista o calculada.
A mi ja em poden dir el que vulguin, però insisteixo que els catalans som rars.
Celebrem la diada de Sant Jordi, que era aquest un cavaller que o anava fumat, confós o era un mentider, perquè això del drac que treia foc per la boca i que es veu el va matar, com no hi haguessin ja correfocs en aquelles èpoques i en anar fumat se les hagués tingut amb un d'aquests, la veritat és que la versió oficial no cola.
Per Sant Jordi, la tradició diu que s'ha de regalar una rosa i un llibre, però el Sant Jordi històric té poca cosa a veure amb aquesta litúrgia. Se sap que era un militar romà que va ésser martiritzat pels mateixos romans cap al segle per no abjurar de la seva fe cristiana. La llegenda més popular a Catalunya sobre Sant Jordi explica que a Montblanc (Conca de Barberà) hi havia un drac terrible. Per apaivagar-lo, s'escollia per sorteig una persona que era donada en sacrifici al monstre. Un dia la sort va assenyalar la filla del rei, que quehihi hauria mort a mans de la fera si no hagués estat per l'aparició d'un cavaller que es va enfrontar al drac i el va matar.
Aquesta mateixa llegenda, amb lleugeres variacions, es repeteix en les tradicions populars d'Anglaterra, Portugal o Grècia. En un principi, sant Jordi era una figura lligada al món de les cavalleries i a l'amor cortès, fet que pot explicar el costum de regalar una rosa per la festivitat del sant. Algunes versions remunten aquesta pràctica a la Fira dels Enamorats que se celebrava a Barcelona pels volts del segle XV.
El que és pot afirmar amb seguretat és que, per aquella època, ja es repartien roses a les dones que el dia de Sant Jordi assistien a la missa oficiada a la capella de Sant Jordi del Palau de la Generalitat.
I a lo millor aquest Sant Jordi no havia llegit un llibre en sa vida i menys encara li agradaven les roses. No sé qui es va inventar aquesta bonica historia de regalar un llibre i una rosa, sobretot perquè hi ha prou gent que és l’inic llibre que compra (he dit compra, no que se'l llegeixi) en tot un any, que gairebé sempre sol ser l’últim premi Planeta, algun boca orella, o el d'algun mediàtic de la tele, que de fet són aquesta tipologia de llibres els que cada vegada més es venen per Sant Jordi.
És el que hi ha, un sant sota sospita i un gran negoci pels qui venen roses i els editors que tenen mediàtics. Anys ençà encara es podia comprar l’últim de la “Sonrisa Vertical”, però aixó era quan els catalans encara teniem un semen de qualitat, ara ja! tant si val.
Amb tot, sembla que tindrem un Sant Jordi més espanyol que mai, amb ministres del Govern del President Rodríguez i el cap del PP, el Sr. Rajoy, sucant el melindro pels jardins del Palau de Pedralbes i fent festa grossa. L'olla ja fa massa temps que vull i comença a fer pudor de cremat. Només falta veure qui es crema primer, Montilla o ZP.

Que tingueu tots i totes una bona diada

de Sant Jordi i que us facin a mans una

rosa ben vermella i un bon llibre!!

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

[color=#ffffff]Hi

With the increasing popularity of myspace poker chips as a virtual currency in zynga texas holdem poker many phishers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned facebook poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few hands of poker only to find that someone has already been in your account and your poker chips are gone.[/color]

[color=#ffffff]Keep these basic things in mind to protect your facebook poker chips:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a pretending star in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Serious online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an edge on their opponents. Poker is no different and there are plenty of websites on the internet touting facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Theives send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the hacker who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by theif, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.
