Shocking accident on Magheru Boulevard in Bucharest

Magheru Boulevard in Bucharest proved one more time that yet remains a dangerous area for those involved in road traffic. A shocking video footage filmed by a surveillance traffic camera shows in real time how a pedestrian was hit on zebra crossing by a high speed car, probably a BMW 3 series. Following the impact, the victim has flown about 10 meters in the air. Possibly the pedestrian was not permitted to pass the street due to red coloured traffic light, still according to street legislation the vehicles should be driven inside a city by 50 km/h, a speed that allows the avoidance of many accidents.

Video: Radu Mazare romanian mayor dressed in SS Nazi uniform

Radu Mazare, the mayor of Constanta city attracted worldwide media controversy after he showed up wearing a SS Nazi general uniform during a fashion parade held on Sunday 19/07/2009 at the Black Sea shoreline resort of Mamaia. The Mayor raised outrage among the jewish community due to his gesture. Despite the fact that in Romania is forbidden to wear a Nazi WWII uniform, Radu Mazare declared pretty relaxed that he did not do anything wrong justifying his action as being inspired by a movie called Walkiria. Furthermore, besides Mazare on the stage turned up also his son Raducu, dressed up the same. Normally in Romania the use of fascist, rasists or xenophobe symbols can be sentenced between 6 months to 5 years in prison. In fact in the video Mazare looks quite handsome, probably willing to get a Hollywoodian contract.

Tips on brand protective glasses and goggles for eye shielding

In the experimental work done mostly in research laboratories and industry, the safety glasses are indispensable tools for performing a secure job. Because I am an experimentalist working in the physical-chemistry field I will try to give some proper advices in general based on my experienced facts and incidents. I will not extend to all possible fields, but I will limit myself to those related to mechanical, chemical and electromagnetic environment.
As general information it must be know that the goggles come in different types, sizes and designs being dependent on the various kind of needed protection. Therefore good care must be taken when ordering the glasses, before doing so it is compulsory to know exactly their application: for those playing with organic or inorganic chemical stuff it is recommended to have goggles covering entirely the eyes and sealing perfectly on the face to avoid protrusion of chemical substances, therefore the producer has to be informed about the use purpose.
When working in the field of lasers, optics and spectroscopy, the most important property of the safety glasses is the optical density at different wavelengths which is dictated by the type of material the glasses are made of.
Besides the type of glasses application, another important aspect is the pricing. There are different brand products among to choose, like pyramex safety glasses or UVEX safety glasses. These spectacles are based on mechanical protection, having a good resistance on impact with flying objects and the prices are tempting but however, the very low pricing might reflect a poor quality of the product . Furthermore the products can be delivered also in customized version as the client has its preferences.

Jakarta: Ritz-Carlton and Marriott hotels bomb attack

At least 4 foreigners were killed in bomb attacks that took place in Jakarta, Indonesia. Two luxury hotels - Ritz-Carlton and Marriott - were hit by blast. Marriott was attacked also in 2003 when 12 people died. The explosion ripped off the facade of Ritz-Carlton hotel and because the windows of the second floor were blown out, it is thought that the blast occured inside the hotel. Futhermore the police found an unexploded bomb at the 18th floor of Marriott. According to witnesses and authorities the first bomb exploded at Ritz-Carlton at 7:48 a.m and five minutes later a loud boom was heard at Marriott at 7:53 a.m (local time). Early after the blasts five bodies were found at and one fatality at J. W. Marriott. Manchester United football team was scheduled to check in ar Ritz-Carlton next Sunday but the terrorist acts made them cancel the trip to Jakarta.
Update: Death toll raised to 6 and 16 of those (50) wounded are foreigners. Along with the victims can be counted also 2 killed bombers at both hotels.

NASA clearest videos of 1969 moonwalk - Apollo 11 mission

Thursday (16 July 2009) NASA released the restored clearest videos of the 1969 Apollo 11 moonwalk. The release celebrates the 40th anniversary of the first manned landing on the moon. Apollo 11 spacecraft lifted off on July 16, 1969 and the astronauts stepped on the moon on 20 July 1969. The crew was formed by Neil Alden Armstrong, Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr and Michael Collins, the first two astronauts landed on moon while the last one orbited the Earth satellite aboard the Command Module. Besides the sharpest footage of the original moonwalk, NASA released also "missing images" or never seen before images of the Apollo 11 mission.
One important aspect is that NASA lost the original video of the moon landing live TV transmission, the released video being reconstructed by Hollywood after NASA gathered four copies. The American Agency declared (embarrased) that the original footage was deleted on reason of tape re-use.

Small business recession survival tricks

So far, the recession reached a pretty high level all over therefore some survival tips for small firms are welcome. A few main problems that maintain the recession are related to the lack of confidence in the partnership, blockage of funds transfer, etc. To found a business at this moment is quite difficult because it is not devoid of risky factors, therefore good care must be taken at the starting point, practically should be taken into account some fundamental factors like choosing the right niche, making a suitable and efficient plan, organizing things, and monitoring the ongoing operations. When having already a large budget business it is obvious that the marketing and management departments are well implemented and developed, but if conducting a smaller affair there might show up troubles in its management. The order fulfillment is a very sensitive process which takes time and supposes a strong connection between the supplier and customer, the most desirable thing being the fastest delivery of the ordered products.
Usually the shipments can be done by using directly one of the most reliable worldwide spread services like DHL, TNT but there is also another easy alternative: employing a fulfillment partner acting like a third party which offer support services and helps running the business by charging convenient costs. One main recession survival tip is to compete on quality and service. It is good to know that the profit and the value of a business are dictated by some important characteristics like accuracy, quality and fastness and the 3rd party advisors take care entirely of the product fulfillment from depositing goods, completing orders, real time tracking of packages and shipping the products from one point to another. During recession the unemployment raises, more and more people will start their own business and the competition is fiercer such that being less experienced or a beginner in the business field represents the most recommended case to request the help for support services.
Another tip to better overcome any recession is to maximize the productivity in order to sell more to customers but higher product sale rate leads to an overwhelming time consuming job, therefore the fulfillment corporations are ideal associates in helping achieve the complete chain of activities from orders processing to products delivery. To keep in mind that is better to use less expensive advisers eventually using free services available. Some other brief recession related tips: identify the competitors, cut prices (not always), try to reinvest, have a good financial check.

27-year-old man killed at 2009 Pamplona bull feast

Risky running at Pamplona July 7-14. Daniel Jimeno Romero - a 27-year-old spanish guy - died after he was gored in the neck during the yearly running of the bulls which takes place in the city of Pamplona, Spain. As video recordings showed, the incident occured at short distance from the bullring entrance where along with the killed man also three other people were gored but they escaped with minor wounds. The previous death at Pamplona bull festival happened in 1995 when a 22 aged american had the same fate. Pamplona run has a 400 years history and 14 individuals have died since 1924. For me it is a bit hard to understand the pleasure of running with the bulls because it clearly looks like a life-threatening-job.

In terms of Amsterdam time the MJ memorial starts at 18:30 on Dutch Televisions (Nederland 3).
