Poems from Titan Park By Nicolae Sfetcu
eBook (ePub): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
From the daily cycling trips in Titan Park, Bucharest, appeared this small volume of poems, illustrated with the most beautiful pictures I made during these walks. At midnight starts my working day.... More > The computer, a coffee, a discreet jazz music, together with other ingredients. At 5:30, I'm getting ready. At 6:00, I take the bicycle and pedal easily to the nearby park, Titan Park. It's still early in the morning, but in the park, there are already running or walking people I have not known before, but now familiar to me. There she is the beautiful girl who runs like a gazelle; and the 50-year-old man who descends the stairs with his back, climbs them, and then goes down; the woman who gives a few laps in a hurried pace, the young man with walking but problems with a will out of the ordinary, who gives up for a moment at the walking stick; those from the outdoor exercise machines, and those who give food to birds; and others, and others ...< Less

The guide include, as annexes, several independent adaptations by the same author of the corresponding European Commission works, freely available via the EU Bookshop as PDF, Lulu as EPUB and SetThings as MOBI (Kindle) and PDF. “If a sentence is ambiguous, the translation must also be“. There is another critical, less easy to argue, based on an Italian phrase with particularly strong wording: “Traduttore, traditore“. This critique argues that any translation will betray the author‘s language, spirit, style … because of the choices on all sides. What to sacrifice, clarity or brevity, if the formula in the text is brief and effective, but impossible to translate into so few words with the exact meaning?< Less

The guide include, as annexes, several independent adaptations by the same author of the corresponding European Commission works, freely available via the EU Bookshop as PDF and via SetThings as MOBI (Kindle) and PDF. For a “smart”, sensible translation , you should forget not the knowledge acquired at school or university, but the corrective standards. Some people want a translation with the touch of the source version, while another people feel that in a successful version we should not be able to guess the original language. Teachers agree at least on this principle: “If a sentence is ambiguous, the translation must also be“.< Less

Evolution and Ethics of Eugenics By Nicolae Sfetcu

As eugenics is defined, it is very difficult to make a clear distinction between science (medicine, genetic engineering) and eugenics as a included field. And to set a line over which genetic... More > engineering should not go further, according to moral, legal and religious norms. If we accept the help of genetics in finding ways to fight cancer, diabetes, or HIV, we also accept positive eugenics as they are defined now. And if we accept genetic screening, and interventions on the unborn baby, or abortion, we also implicitly accept negative eugenics. In addition, at government level, although eugenics are officially denied, it has been legalized in many countries until recently, and is still accepted and legalized, albeit in subtle forms, even these days. The section Introduction defines the term and classification modes. I then analyze various issues raised by the ethics of liberal eugenics in New Eugenics, and I have developed a special section for The Future of Eugenics, focusing on the human genome project.< Less
