Math Question *:   2 % 3 =
* Solve this math problem and enter the result. The '%' symbol stands for 'modulo', i.e. clock arithmetic: The 2nd value is the no. of 'full hours' on a clock face, 'midnight' being zero. Where would you land when starting from there, and moving ahead as many hours as the 1st value? E.g. for 7%3, enter 1; for 5%9, 5; for 8%4 or anything%1, 0. (Hint: If the 2nd value is greater than the 1st, the answer is always just the 1st value!)

Hey, me too, in my own guestbook - replying to a German entry in German: * Christliche Frauen konnten vor noch nicht mal 100 Jahren im Westen nicht wählen. * Hindi Frauen wurden seit Jahrhunderten oft gezwungen Sati zu begehen; erst vor wenigen Jahren gab es die letzte Witwenverbrennung. * Muslimische Mädchen gehen in Karatschi in eine eigene Frauenuni, wo auch Ingenieurswissenschaften unterrichtet werden. (Selber gesehen.) Fazit: Irrespektive der Religion ist die Lage der Frauen weltweit diffizil, und noch immer weitverbreitete Unterdrückung jeglicher Art zu verachten.

Ich versteh dieses "captcha" nicht! Zu "Isa" - übrigens der türkische name von Jesus - nur soviel: so kühn die hypothese ist, so unwahrscheinlich ist die "frau mit dem eisernen willen" zu Jesu zeit: ich habe heute noch mit entsetzen zusehen müssen, wie muslimischen mädchen jede initiative, ja selbst das fragen abgewöhnt wird (um ein neutrales verb zu gebrauchen).

Hello Kai, just read your review of Gatsby.

It's been a long time since I read the book in German. Years later I saw the film and despite liking the Reford's work of that time, was disappointed. As far as I remember, there is the melancholy, almost a deathwish mood of that first "lost Generation" after WWI in that book, but too little in the film. Yes, Daisy is hollow - all the values, which justified her lifestyle before, have faded away after the war, what remains, is an idle life. While writing this, the thought occurs: rather a problem of modern life in developed countries, isn't it? Society changing, an era ending, a search for meaning beginning - roots for the various upheavals in the 20th century to be found here? When Fitzgerrald wrote Gatsby, the revolution in Russia only had started seven years ago, and it's the time my parents were born, grandparents shared the opinions and Weltanschauung feudaler power and societies. It's all so close - my Grandma had servants - and yet all over. Would like to reread the book, many thanx for the DVD, again! Hugs, s.
