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:

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 ???
