Profanarea unui cimitir evreiesc din Romania ENG
Romania Jewish cemetery defaced
Anti-Semitic and fascist slogans have appeared on the wall of a Jewish cemetery in a northwestern Romanian village where 126 Jews died during World War II, the local Jewish community said Friday. Jewish officials discovered anti-Semitic and fascist messages at a cemetery in the village of Camaras, written in big red letters in German, said Gavrila Goldner, chief of the local community in Cluj. Goldner said the messages were recent and read "Jews out," and "Heil Hitler." "The person who made the inscriptions is a coward. He made them behind the cemetery and not inside or in front," Goldner said by telephone. The messages were surrounded by swastikas. A swastika was also scrawled within the Star of David. There are 126 graves in the Jewish cemetery in Camaras, located 350 kilometers (218 miles) northwest of Bucharest. All of the Jews were killed during World War II. The cemetery, which has a monument dedicated to the slain Jews, is a pilgrimage site for Jews from Romania and abroad. Authorities were investigating the desecration, which could carry a prison sentence of up to five years. Romania was home to 760,000 Jews before 1940. An estimated 420,000 died after being deported to concentration camps by the country's pro-Nazi ruler Ion Antonescu and the Hungarian authorities that controlled parts of Romania during the war. After the war, about 300,000 Romanian Jews immigrated to Israel during the Communist period. There are about 6,000 Jews living in Romania today.

Carpathian Gold confirms
high grade gold mineralization on a
new project area on its Baia Sprie licenses, Romania
TORONTO, CNW - Carpathian Gold Inc. (CPN - TSX-Venture) is
pleased to announce recent confirmation results from a series of high grade
gold veins on the Varatec Mine-Site Project located in the north eastern
portion of the company's exploration licenses in the Baia Mare Mining District
of northern Romania. This new project area is situated 25 km east of the Baia
Sprie project on which an economic evaluation is underway (see Press Release
dated June 7, 2004).
A compilation of historical underground mine data from the Varatec
Mine-Site Project has defined an area with high grade gold veins that extend
from surface to an average depth of approximately 180 metres below surface. In
the 1980's, the state exploration company IPEG, drilled four core holes and
collected 1,306 channel samples from three underground exploration levels.
This work identified three vertical vein sets with strike lengths ranging 250
to 450 metres. Historical results from a total of 326 channel samples across
these veins yielded 126 samples in excess of 5.0 g Au/t (including 56 channel
samples in excess of 10.0 g Au/t; and 20 channel samples in excess of 30.0 g
Au/t) over widths of 0.3 to 1.0 metres. In addition, the high grade gold
mineralization has significant associated base metal mineralization reported
to contain greater than 5% Pb and greater than 1% Cu and in some localities
the mineralization appears to extend into the wall rocks. At the Varatec Mine,
base-metal + gold mineralization is known to extend 1000 metres below the
surface with mining currently taking place on through-going east-west trending
veins below the 950 metre level (approximately 300 metres below surface) to
the 600 metre level by the state mining company REMIN SA. (Carpathian's Joint
Venture partner in the Baia Mare District). The average mining grades at depth
are in the order of 2% Cu, 6% Pb+Zn and up to 5.0 g Au/t. Mining activity has
not occurred in the upper 300 meters of the mineralizing system at Varatec.
As part of Carpathian's exploration program, a confirmation sampling
program is underway and presently includes collection of grab samples,
underground channel sampling in one gallery (15 metres below surface) and one
62 metre long diamond drill hole. The objective of this program is to verify
the historical data where access allows, determine mineralization style, and
evaluate/generate drill targets.
Assay results from Carpathian's work thus far include grab samples
collected from two separate gallery dumps returned 10.59 g Au/t; 4.60 g Au/t;
2.00 g Au/t; and 13.60 g Au/t.
In addition, a single 'confirmation' diamond drill hole targeted to
intersect one of the veins approximately 30 metres below surface and returned
14.64 g Au/t, 2.1% Zn and 2.8% Pb over 1.0 m.
Carpathian has gained access to one of the underground exploration levels
with five channel sample traverses across the same vein that was drill tested
and returned the following results along an exposed 25 metre strike length
section of the vein:
15.87 g Au/t over 1.0 metres
5.71 g Au/t over 2.0 metres
11.52 g Au/t over 1.4 metres
3.85 g Au/t over 1.0 metres
6.67 g Au/t over 1.0 metres
The Varatec Mine Project is one of the highest-grade gold epithermal
mineralized systems in the District with associated base-metal mineralization,
and is considered a priority target area. A further attribute of this target
is the vertical extent of vein systems in the area of 600 to 1,000 metres
along a mined strike length of 900 metres, with previous and present mining
activity occurring at depths of 300 metres or greater below the surface. The
recognition of this mineralization extending to the surface with high-grade
gold provides an attractive target for further work. Carpathian has embarked
on a trenching and ground geophysical program to be followed up by drilling to
evaluate the number and true extent of the gold veins in the area and the
possible dispersion of gold mineralization into relatively flat lying
brecciated volcanic units known to exist the immediate vicinity.
All samples collected from this program were prepared and analysed at the
independent SGS Ltd laboratory in Gura Rosiei, Romania, using industry-
standard fire assay techniques on 50 g sample-charges with AAS finish. Blanks
and known gold-standards are inserted on a routine basis and together comprise
10% of submitted samples. Mr. Dino Titaro is the in-house Qualified Person (as
defined in National Instrument 43-101) overseeing the design and
implementation of the present exploration program.
Carpathian Gold Inc. is a mineral exploration company focused on gold
exploration on its highly prospective properties in Romania and Hungary,
within the prolific Carpathian Mineral Arc.

S-a inchis linia de fabricare a Daciei Sedan ENG
In Romania, the Last of the Ubiquitous Dacia Sedan
MIOVENI, Romania -- It ferried brides, transported mountains of
cabbages and melons to market and rushed the sick to hospitals. A
Romanian man was not considered complete unless he could get one
going with a screwdriver. The last of the iconic Dacia sedans -- boxy, breakdown-prone
cars Romanians have loved to hate for 35 years -- rolled off the
assembly line Wednesday, ending an era in the ex-communist
country. The Dacia (pronounced Da' cheea) is the most ubiquitous car in
Romania. That probably will not change for years to come: with
average monthly salaries at less than $200, most Romanians cannot
afford new cars. French-owned Automobile Dacia Groupe Renault says there are an
estimated 1.5 million Dacias in this country of 22 million people.
The last one was the 1,959,730th made at the factory in Mioveni,
125 miles northwest of Bucharest. But statistics mean little to sentimental Romanians, who often
give their cars pet names and practically consider them part of
the family. "It was a car that attracted all the girls," recalled Gheorghe
Stoica, 57, who has owned the same Dacia since 1985. "I used to be
embarrassed of taking a girl out if her father had a Dacia and I
didn't." The last Dacia 1300, a replica of the Renault 12, likely will
be donated to a museum. Two hundred sedans turned out in the final
run were sold Tuesday for $5,040 apiece and are expected to become
collector's items. Emil Ion, 49, who owns a gray 1970 Dacia -- one of the first
manufactured -- said he recently received several offers for it. "I love it as much as my wife and son, and I won't give it up
for anything," said Ion, who affectionately calls his car "Daddy's
Old Girl." Renault forged a partnership with Automobile Dacia in 1968
during a thaw in communism, in an era when the average Romanian
began aspiring to own a car. The first Dacia was a replica of the Renault 8. In 1969,
production of the Dacia 1300 began. Romania shook off communism in 1989, and a decade later,
Renault bought a 99.43 percent stake in the company. The Dacia elicits ambivalence, with some Romanians saying it
reminds them of communism -- a bleak time when there was little
choice for consumers. "It is a symbol of the communists, just like the Trabant was a
symbol for the East Germans," said 57-year-old Ion Maneta, whose
family name means "gear stick" in Romanian. Dacia was to Romanians what the Lada was to the Soviets: not
the prettiest of cars but easy to repair, and there were no
problems finding spare parts. Every village had a "Nene," an
avuncular-type figure who could fix the car. "You open the hood, put your arm in the carburetor and unblock
the fuel pipe," said Traian Negulescu, 30, who grew up with a
Dacia. His father has nursed "Albuta," or "Little White One," since it
was purchased in 1979. "The Dacia is like a beast of burden. You work with it and it's
not fussy or costly ... it's not the healthiest thing, but it's
always there," Negulescu said. Under communism, buyers sometimes had to wait two years for a
Dacia, and a regular one would cost nearly three years' salary for
the average worker. Even those fortunate enough to acquire one had a tough time
enjoying it. The late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu rationed
gasoline, and cars were only allowed on the roads on alternative
Sundays. The automaker now will produce the new Logan -- a model Renault
will also build and sell in other countries. Locally, Dacia will
continue building the Solenza model and utility vehicles. Sorin Nicolau, who runs an automobile service in the capital,
Bucharest, bade the old sedan good riddance. "For the demands we had then, it was a good car," he said. "But
we changed. Now it's outdated. It is not a family car -- it is not
good for modern roads, for the comfort we want today." But company vice chairman Constantin Stroe said the sedan was
leaving behind a heady legacy. "Dacia was predestined to make
history," he said. Dacia employee Maria Purcaru said she watched the last one roll
away "with tears in my eyes."

Sexy club cu bunicute inchis de politia din Constanta ENG
Breast best kept to under 60s
They're probably brave to make a clean breast of it, but cops in Romania say they want to bar women over 60 from going topless. "Going topless has its age limit, and old women going topless should understand this," said Constanta county police chief Victor Popescu. Officer Ionut Popescu said the sight of the topless older women on beaches was "repulsive."
