SOMETHING PEACEFUL Setembro 3, 2007
Krishna Janmashtami is observed on the eighth day of the dark half (Krishna Paksha) of the month of Shraavana in the Hindu calendar, when the Rohini Nakshatram is ascendent. The Hindu calendar being lunar, these two events [the day being the eighth of the waning moon (Krishna-paksha Ashtami) and the Rohini Nakshatram being ascendent] may overlap for only a few hours. In such an event, the festival may be celebrated on different (but successive) days by different people, depending on their local or family traditions.
The festival falls sometime in the months of August/September of the Gregorian calendar. In 2006, Krishnashtami was celebrated on August 15 or August 16.
In 2007, Krishnaashtami will be celebrated on September 4.
whenever faced with questions like “where are those wmd’s you told us about”? or “what are acheiving in iraq”? the neocon adminstration would repeat the same argument “arent you glad that we’ve rid the iraqi people and the world from a brutal dictator”?a dictator? hmmm,that’s weird ,because for someone who knows as little about history as i do , i can recall the following:this us backed and still back a neighbour of iraq named saudi arabia, the prison state, a corrupt monarchy who just happen to be this president as well as his dad’s business associates.and just to the north of iraq there’s another dictatorship called the jordanian royal family who is also backed by the us for a clear and simple reason , they are best friends with israel.not to mention ofcourse the dictatorship in egypt that receives the second largest us aid.on the other hand, the same adminstration that was so concerned with democracy to the extent that it invaded a soverign country in order to impose it , engineered a coup d’etat in 2002 against an elected president called hugo chavez.not to mention its ongoing demonization of another elected president , iran’s ahmedi najad who got 60% of the votes of his people (that’s more than george bush ever got, even by an election fraud)some people may call this “selective morality” i call it what it is : hypocrisy and double standards.
US Special Forces teams are conducting terrorist operations inside Iran.
US war doctrine has been altered to permit first strike nuclear attack on Iran and other non-nuclear countries.
The war criminal is in the living room, and no official notice is taken of the fact.
Lacking US troops with which to invade Iran, the Bush administration has decided to bomb Iran “back into the stone age.” Punishing air and missile attacks have been designed not merely to destroy Iran’s nuclear energy projects, but also to destroy the public infrastructure, the economy, and the ability of the government to function.
This clips is very informative , everyone should watch it , but please notice that there is a big different between the American government policy and our wonderful American friends
Hello everyone from around the world. its nice to be back again been away from the computer for about a week. anyway i would like to share to you a recipe of one of the famous filipino food the “Adobo”. Adobo perhaps, is the most popular and most distinguished among all Filipino cuisines. It has been made reference to in the movie American Adobo and been mention in Black Eyed Peas Song “Bebot” it is a favorite among Filipino food. and among my favorite food too. just like pasta there are varieties of ways on how to cook adobo The most widely preferred traditionally is pork adobo, followed by chicken adobo— although chicken adobo is very popular these days for health reasons. Other ingredients such as squid, beef, lamb, game fowl like quail and snipe, catfish, okra, eggplant, string beans, and water spinach (kangkong) are also made into adobo, so if you haven’t tried adobo yet go to your nearest Filipino Restaurant or go here in the Philippines to give it a try and i guarantee you will not regret it. anyway if its impossible for you to visit Philippines and the Filipino restaurants is miles away from you. just do it on your own as it is very easy to cook. here is the recipe on how to cook your very own adobo.
How To Cook
* 1/2 kilo pork or chicken, cut in cubes for pork and cut in
pieces if chicken
* 1 head garlic, crushed
* 1 cup soy sauce
* 1 cup vinegar
* 2 cups of water
* 5 laurel leaves (bay leaves)
* 4 tablespoons of cooking oil or olive oil
* Whole Peppercorns
* Ginger (if cooking chicken or with chicken)
* Combine all ingredients in a pot.
* Let it simmer and boil until almost all the water is gone.
If you did not trim the fat off the pork, let the natural
oils of off it come out. You may add some cooking oil or
olive oil if there isn't enough to fry the meat.
* The meat will be very tender so be careful mixing it while
letting it fry on its own fat (or added oil) so the meat
doesn't fall apart or break.
* Viola! It's done!!! Enjoying your adobo with rice and fresh
Premathas Premkumar, 14, a student who lost both legs in the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombing on the fishing hamlet in A’ampil July 11, in an interview to Tamilnet Monday, said that attending school has become impossible and added, “I regret I had not been killed in the attack, as I would not have been a burden to my family which is already poor.”
Premkumar from the hospital bed told how he was injured.
“I was at the shore that day to help my father in the Vaadi hut. As he was going home for lunch, I too followed soon to join him. It was then I heard the sound the Kfir. Everyone started running and I saw a Kfir diving close to the spot above where I was. Before I could fall flat on the ground a bomb exploded hurling me several feet into the air.
“When the sounds subsided I found my friend Selvakumar severely wounded lying close to me . We both had shared Jack fruit some ten minutes earlier. I rose to help but couldn’t; I realized parts of both my legs were missing.
“Kfirs made another bombing run.
“I buried my head in the sand and did not hear the explosion. When I lifted my head up, I saw everyone running and screaming. No one noticed me and I tried to shout, but I could hardly make any sound.
“It was then I felt a burning sensation in my body.
“I did not know what to do. I wanted the Kfir to strike again to kill me. Then I felt someone lifting me up before I lost consciousness.
“When I woke I found myself on the hospital bed. My parents stood close weeping. My father had high hopes that I would study and provide support to my family. Now all his hopes are shattered.
“My father told me of the movement’s financial support. This has given me strength and inspiration. But I am enraged on thinking about the Government’s attacks on people like us.
“My father said that they are now forced to live under the shade of a big Banniyan tree at Kumizhamunai village and Kfirs still continue to hit civilian settlements. I hope things will change on the ground soon so that my family can go back to normal life.
Premkumar faces a long period of recovery, and an uncertain future
