Ziua Mondiala a PamantuluiIn ziua de 21 Martie a fiecarui an, intreaga lume sarbatoreste Ziua Mondiala a Pamantului. Avand in vedere actuala noastra relatie cu planeta Pamant, cred ca aceasta sarbatoare va fi marcata in acest an mai mult ca niciodata, cel putin la nivel mondial. Ziua Mondiala a Pamantului se sarbatoreste din 1970, proclamarea acestei sarbatori fiind insotita de cuvintele: “May there only be peaceful and cheerful Earth Days to come for our beautiful Spaceship Earth as it continues to spin and circle in frigid space with its warm and fragile cargo of animate life.”. Intr-adevar, echilibrul este foarte fragil, iar supravietuirea noastra pe acesta planeta depinde de multi factori, printe care si atitudinea noastra vis-à-vis de tot ce ne inconjoara: natura, animale, oameni. Cuvintele “iubeste-ti aproapele” sunt mai adevarate in ziua de azi ca niciodata. Dupa o scurta analiza a prezentei Zilei Mondiale a Pamantului pe internet, am remarcat ca Earthsite.org sugereaza diverse moduri de sarbatorire a zilei, dintre care mi-a atras atentia propunerea de a face cu totii curatenie in locurile unde locuim sau lucram, sa plantam copaci sau arbusti in parcuri. Suna bine, insa in Bucuresti nu am auzit de astfel de actiuni, nu s-a gandit nimeni sa organizeze asa ceva. Din punctul meu de vedere, orice companie romaneasca sau straina putea sa organizeze sarbatorirea Zilei Mondiale a Pamantului pentru salariatii sai, familiile lor; un mod simplu si elegant de a scapa de rutina si a petrece ziua in mijlocul orasului in care traiesti. Chiar si pentru scoli era o ocazie buna de educat si motivat copiii. (more…)

IOAA-07-Romania wins golden medalDear Vilmos Loo & team, Congratulations for the medals and prizes won at the International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics. I am very proud to be a fellow citizen of such bright teenagers. I am sure it was a real challenge for them, having in mind the lack of resources and motivation in our present education system. Bravo for these students that they followed their ambition and didn´t listen to the pessimistic and good-for-nothing comments.
