Look what I found on Aftenposten this morning! Now tell me HOW FAIR IS THAT:
“Almost 50 Afghan teenage girls are now in the hospital after gas-attack against a girl-school in city Charikar in the north of the country.
The director of the school organized evacuation, when he felt a strange smell in the building of the school, while the pupils felt dizzy and nauseous.
“I´m very sure that the one who is behind this happening is against the education of women. But I encourage the patents not to be afraid of it,- says Noor Jahan laying on the hospital bed in Reuters.
She is one of 46 girls who is attanded at the local hospital.”
This kind of happning has become more common in Afghanistan lately.
Last year a group of school girls where attacked by the group of men who protested against women´s rights for education throwing the acid into those school girls faces.
Well, that´s not the only problem for women in Afghanistan. After husband dies, woman loses all her chances for more or less “normal” living. It´s even worse if woman doesn´t have a male relative. So most of widows are left to live in fear for ever after…
Take a look inside A Man´s World . Is there any chance for those women to experience normal life ever ??? Is it fair to live and to die for men? We can´t let it be this way! World must fight for those lost souls!!!

It is a beautiful early morning. I´m Peru. Away from my home…
While looking through head-lines in my favourite online “newspapers” I found some interesting stuff about Russia. Well, I´m belorussian, but both of my lovely parents are russian. This fact I guess makes Russia my second home-land… Whatever…
Here are some interesting articles about Russia I´d like to share with you!

This was the first article I read:
New Rules for Russia’s Cops: No Bribes or Wild Sex

What can I say? Russian police is well-known for its bad reputation: abuse of power, cruelty, corruption, “friendship” with criminals. It has been this way for quite a while already, so I have doubts about the success of this new code of conduct for the police, “the aim of which is to turn Russia’s police into polished professionals”. Well, good luck with this. I must admit though that there are those russian policemen, who choose the job with the willing to protect the country and its society, but it´s pretty much impossible for a healthy humanistic idea to survive in the corrupted and wasted environment of the police-office.

I hope the people who took those pictures are in good health today.

While researching for the second article about new taxi-business for russian women, I found out that to get access to any information on The Moscow Times online you have to subscribe. Ok. Lets see how it works in real time…
Well, it´s Russia, so… The Moscow Times “allows free access to all articles published in the last month”. BUT! “In order to read the full text of other stories, we require a subscription to the Article Archive.” And… “Subscription rates for non-residents are based on fixed rouble/euro rate which is 34,5 roubles for 1 euro”.
I guess I´ll just trust to my FREE norwegian source, which says that “A young, beautiful and drunk woman takes a taxi outside nightclub. Sometime later she wakes up raped and left in a park. The scene is unfortunately quite common for Moscow even amoung established taxi-companies. That´s why taxi for women with a woman behind wheel has become a new business”…

Another intresting thing about Russia is its obsession with fashion! Just check out this CNN report.

And that´s true: russian people, specially women, are so into “looking fabulous”, that no economical crises can stop them from spending money on clothes, high-heels shose, make up, hair and manicure.
More about RFW.

And here is the last but not the least news about Russian for today.
Many russian women still prefer abortion to prevention. Nothing else needs to be said.

Anyway Russia is not that bad. And I´d like to share its GOOD with you next time! So check up on me!

And one more rather funny and cute (maybe a little dumb) thing about Russia:

While the Catholic Church has been celebrating the Easter praying and talking to God, I spend more time thinking about the religion. Let me notice that I don´t consider myself to be a religious person. But I am a believer. It means that I don´t pray, don´t go to church, don´t believe in priests speaches, don´t waste time talking, don´t pretend… But I do believe in God, not the one that expects me to stand on my knees in front of it´s holy “face” though, but the God who wants me to be kind and do “good” instead of talking. So my Easter i spent as any other day of my life, dedicating some hours of my free time to help someone in need. Well, I´m not a saint and don´t want to be one, I´m not looking for acceptance from the church (God, no!) . I simply do what I can to make this world a better place to be. And I know I´m a good person, because that´s what I choose to be.
Here is the question: what is faith actually about???
Why do people waste time praying to God if it´s in their own hands to help, to give and to change the world? What is this whole church mess about if it´s not about lazy “church people” with sharp toungues that expect the God to do their human job…
Why do many people go to stupid extreems instead of simply doing “good”?
What is you faith??? Might it look like this?

During 14 years the chiness woman has been adopting animals from the streets and saving
from restaurants, where dogs and cats meat is served. Now this 60 year old lady is living with more than 300 pets. She calls the animals her children. But those are the “children” who eat 200 kg food every single day. So the woman spent all her savings and still had to borrow more money from her relatives and acquaintances. Then she started collecting food rests from the schools in the neighborhood. But she still spends around 2000 $ per mounth for her pets. She also sold her property, something her family isn´t glad about. None of her relatives supports her decision. In the year 2000 the woman had to sell the house she had kept as a present for her son til his marriage. The son got upset and left the house. He came back to his mother though. But the rest of the family consider her to be mad. The neighbors of the woman are not happy with the animals collective, so she was pressed to leave from the neighborhood 9 times already. She has lived in the house for 5 years, but the neighbors run out of patience, and very soon the lady and her 300 pets have to start seaching for a new home house again.

Here is the horrible story I found on
Aftenposten
& Daily Mail

The fact that children once considered to be innocent and sin-free are now able to “behave” this way scares me to death. What is next ???
Other question that botheres me is the fact of responsibility. Who is the guilty of this happening? Society or the particular family? Who has to be punished? The children or their parents? Who must care ???
Today the media is full to overflowing with Breaking News: war, violence, crime, rape… And there is no longer old good news to start the day with. More and more often different people from different parts of the world seems to want this day to finish. Lets hope tomorrow will be a better day for each and all of us…
But today´s reality is : two kids (11 and 9 year old) are fighting for their lives after being tortured by two other children of their age.

Here is shortly about something I found in Aftenposten :
... in 2002 17-year old boy was buried in Vaalerenga church. His coffin was tagged by his friends, because the dead boy was a tagger (graffiti artist). It was just one example for non-traditional coffins that have been used for burials in Oslo. And even though the majority still prefers traditional burials, when a relative has got a special will one tries to fulfill it. So nowadays people also can choose amoung bigger range of coffins. “The possible reason for it is to make the whole ceremony more personal. The choice of coffins can be one of the ways to do it,”- says Gunnar Hammersmark.
Here come some coffin design offers from Svanholm firm in Trondheim

By the way the price of one coffin like this might be between 5000 and 10000 NOK
(02.03.2009: 1 USD = 6,75 NOK . Do the math!)
So… where one of those coffins might take us?
… to a better world or something ???
