Dalai Lama spricht zu den Schweizern
Direkt an die Schweizer Bevölkerung gewandt hat sich der Dalai Lama am Samstag auf einer Kundgebung in Zürich.

Mehrere tausend Menschen haben am Samstag in der Zürcher Innenstadt an einer Solidaritätskundgebung für Tibet teilgenommen. Höhepunkt war die fast einstündige Rede des Dalai Lama. Es war das erste Mal, dass er direkt zu der Schweizer Bevölkerung sprach. In Europa ist dies bisher erst einmal vorgekommen, vor zwei Jahren in Berlin. Die mehrstündige Kundgebung auf dem Zürcher Münsterhof, an der auch zahlreiche Schweizer Künstler teilnahmen, stand unter dem Motto „Die Schweiz für Tibet. Tibet für die Welt“. (mhe)

Goldhausse auf Indisch

Jetzt wird's religiös
Goldhausse auf Indisch
Attraktive Gedlanlagen in Niedrigzinstzeiten? Kein einfaches Unterfangen. Gold hat sich da bewährt. Das zeigt die Vergangenheit. Wenn dann auch noch die Nachfrage nach dem Edelmetall anzieht, winken Rekordpreise.

Eine hohe Nachfrage aus Indien hat erneut den Goldpreis steigen lassen. Mit 851,92 Euro kostete eine Feinunze zeitweise so viel wie noch nie seit der Einführung der Gemeinschaftswährung. Zum Vortag verteuerte sich Gold damit um 0,7 Prozent. Der Dollarpreis für Gold zog um 0,4 Prozent auf 1138,20 Dollar je Feinunze an. "Wir sehen weiter gute Nachfrage aus Indien", begründete ein Händler den auch in Dollar relativ hohen Preis.

Während der religiösen Festzeit ist Goldschmuck in Indien ein sehr beliebtes Geschenk. Doch auch viele Anleger kauften am Mittwoch wieder Gold als Investment, da sich zumindest vorläufig in den USA keine Zinswende abzeichnet.

Niedrigzins bleibt
Aus dem Protokoll der März-Sitzung des Offenmarktausschusses der US-Notenbank (Fed) geht hervor, dass die Währungshüter eine Ausdehnung der Nullzinspolitik nicht ausschließen.

Einige Fed-Vertreter gehen gar davon aus, dass die Risiken einer frühen Zinsanhebung die Gefahren eines zu langen Wartens übersteigen. "In Ermangelung attraktiver Anlagealternativen erhöht dies die Attraktivität von Rohstoffen im Allgemeinen und von Gold im Speziellen", stellten die Analysten der Commerzbank fest. Zudem profitierte Gold als sicherer Anlagehafen von den Sorgen um die hohe Verschuldung Griechenlands.

Derweil gaben die Preise für Öl und Basismetalle leicht nach. Händler führten dies vor allem auf Gewinnmitnahmen und technische Faktoren zurück. Die Tonne Kupfer verbilligte sich um bis zu 0,7 Prozent auf 7936,25 Dollar. Auch der Ölpreis gab nach und unterbrach damit den Höhenflug der vergangenen sieben Handelstage, in denen er neun Prozent zugelegt hatte. Das Fass (159 Liter) US-Leichtöl der Sorte WTI kostete mit 86,50 Dollar 0,4 Prozent weniger als am Vorabend. Nordseeöl der Sorte Brent verbilligte sich um 0,1 Prozent auf 86,06 Dollar.

Deutch crushes opponents in financial race

> Posted by Anthony Man on April 9, 2010 02:14 PM
The special election is Tuesday, and Democratic congressional candidate Ted Deutch holds a commanding advantage in campaign contributions, taking in more than $1.5 million since launching his campaign last fall.

His two opponents have raised so little that their entire treasuries would amount to little more than rounding errors in Deutch’s campaign checkbook. For every $1 he’s raised, opponents Ed Lynch and Jim McCormick have taken in less than six cents.

Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show that Deutch, a lawyer and Democratic state senator from west of Boca Raton, raised $1.35 million in campaign contributions through late March. Since then, he’s received at least $160,600 more.

Republican Ed Lynch, a contractor and consultant who lives west of West Palm Beach, has raised $81,000. Most of that money came in before late March; he’s received another $3,200 since.

Despite his boast to a FOX News interviewer that passage of the new federal health care law produced a tidal wave of new contributors to his campaign, reports filed by Lynch don’t show any surge that would give him the cash to spread his message.

Deutch’s money has allowed him to run a well-organized campaign with paid staffers, repeated mailings to voters’ houses, and television advertising – all aimed at getting his supporters to the polls in the overwhelmingly Democratic 19th Congressional District.

A third candidate, computer consultant Jim McCormick who lives west of Boca Raton, raised $4,816. McCormick, a registered Republican until February, is running with no party affiliation.

Deutch, Lynch and McCormick are running to succeed U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, who resigned his Broward-Palm Beach county congressional seat in the middle of his seventh term.


The winner will serve the remaining eight months of Wexler’s term; the office is up for election again in November. The 19th Congressional District has 458,790 registered voters who can participate in Tuesday’s election.

Deutch raised the bulk of his money before the Feb. 2 primary, raising $923.522 by Jan. 14, and more than $587,000 since.

The $181,000 cash Deutch’s campaign had in the bank as of March 24 – not including at least $160,600 more since then – is more than double the total his two opponents combined have taken in during the entire six-month campaign.

All three could have more than those totals indicate. Small contributions taken in after March 24 don’t have to be publicly reported before Election Day. Federal rules require disclosure only of larger contributions in the closing days of a campaign.

Though he’s a Democrat, Deutch received contributions from individuals and political action committees across the political spectrum, ranging from business leaders to labor unions.

Among them: $9,600 from H. Wayne Huizenga, the billionaire Republican business entrepreneur from Fort Lauderdale, and $9,600 from Alfonso and Andres Fanjul, two members of the Palm Beach family that runs Florida Crystals Corp.

An examination of the reports shows that the seminal political event of 2010 – the Democratic Congress’ passage of the health care overhaul law – didn’t do anything to alter the candidates’ financial positions.

“We’ve got probably a 1,000 percent increase since the bill was passed on Sunday and then we’ve got about another 1,000 percent increase since it was signed into law,” Lynch told FOX Business Network on March 26, three days after President Barack Obama signed it into law.

The disclosure reports show the pace of itemized contributions picked up for in the days after the health care vote – for both Lynch and Deutch. That coincided with the cutoff point for the last big financial disclosure before the election, and contributions often spike as the deadline looms.

Lynch last week he didn’t get a big increase in money in the aftermath of the health care law.

“The number of contributions has jumped up, but actually our average has gone down,” he said. “The other day I got a $1 bill from someone. We got a ton of tiny dribs and drabs. That was up tenfold, which was the 1,000 percent.”

A bit of India swirls into town - Exotic dance, colorful costumes a treat at Hoyt Library

Exotic dance, colorful costumes a treat at Hoyt Library
JOHN KRISPIN jkrispin@timesleader.com
KINGSTON – The sounds of music and rings and rattles of bells do not usually suggest the setting of a library, but for a few hours on Saturday, this was a place of song and dance.

Two groups of traditional Indian and fusion-dance members brought their customary and modern moves to the Hoyt Library Saturday morning and afternoon, attended by more than 50 teenage students.
“We dance a tribal fusion,” said Audrey Marut, 30, a native of Dallas and member of the Solstice Bellydance Troupe. “It fuses modern dance with ballet, hip-hop and traditional belly dance moves.”
The belly dance troupe was represented by Marut, who goes under the alias “Shula” while performing, and Carrey Ann Mudlock, 40, Pittston, whom you can call “Naia” once on stage. The two are just half of the troupe members who meet at ArtsYOUniverse, Wilkes-Barre. Their dancing incorporates not only dance but also a bit of acting skill, vaudeville.
Their facial expression, along with body motions, tells the story of the routine. The wardrobes, a gleaming and shining array of purple and sequins, would be similar to the authentic dress one would find on travels afar in India and beyond.
During the final segment of dancing, the women asked the audience for dance volunteers, and 15 students answered. They joined the two in a circle, exhibiting simpler techniques that the children were quick to copy.
“I thought it was kind of fun when the kids were dancing,” said Qalil Ismail, 14, of Wyoming Valley West High School. He, too, was one of the dancing students.
“It was awesome,” said Garrett Brand, 14, Wyoming Valley West Middle School, showing humbling signs of dancing with his girl peers.
Food and drink were offered up by Ratna Patimalla, a staff member of the Hoyt Library. Along with making the food, she donated custom outfits for the workers.
The Hoyt Library advocates its Teen Advisory Committee and other ways of bridging the gap in its patron age groups.
“We never seem to get enough teens involved,” said Carol Damus, outreach coordinator for the teen advisers. “This dance (performance) was their idea.” About 20 teens regularly attend the meetings and were in attendance Saturday.
For more information on the Solstice Bellydance Troupe’s schedule, contact ArtsYOUniverse at (570) 970-3592, or at Solsticebellydance@yahoo.com.
Next week is National Library Week and the 2010 Pennsylvania Initiative opening event.

When did Krieg der Sterne become Star Wars? Part 2



By Miss-A. ⋅ April 7, 2010
Hope you all had a nice Easter weekend! I did and I even went to the cinema on Saturday to see the new “Alice in Wonderland”. Which brings me back on track to my film titles topic. Well, not Alice herself (this title has been translated neatly) but the cinema.

Looking at the titles of films showing in German cinemas now or soon again I have to mention the kind of translation that I personally find most disturbing – ‘the mixture’! Examples include: “Blind Side – Die große Chance”, “Precious – Das Leben is kostbar” and “Gesetz der Straße – Brooklyn’s Finest”. As you can see both sides are represented: you can start by ‘quoting’ the original title and then add a ridiculous German ‘explanation’ or start with the German version but include the English original at the back in case someone prefers it this way. Translating titles is a very responsible and difficult task so why expose the whole process and render it quite pointless at the same time by making the original and the translation stand side by side.

Oh, and one more thing that drives me crazy: creating monstrous anglicised neologisms like “Der Kautions-Cop” (for “Bounty Hunter”). Why??
