@prolaznik, hajd molim te kad stavljaš link, pejstuj i par rečenica iz teksta, ako ti nije problem.

Dvadesetčetvorogodišnja Jovana Popović iz Kikinde nalazi se u pritvoru u Zabeli nakon što je pre tri dana uhapšena zbog navodnog kršenja mere karantina o kojoj je, tvrdi, niko nije obavestio - niti je dobila zvanično rešenje o kućnoj izolaciji. Iz Komiteta pravnika za ljudska prava (YUCOM) kažu da im se obratilo više građana koji su sličnoj situaciji.

In recent years, the unique modernist architecture of Yugoslavia has begun to be increasingly celebrated around the world and recognized for being a singular architectural manifestation, distinct from the work made by either the Cold-War eastern or western powers. However, what has not received as much attention or recognition are the works by Yugoslav architects that were built outside the area of Yugoslavia. Because of the influence and political relationships which Yugoslavia cultivated through creating and participating in the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) (which was a "a forum of 120 developing world states that were formally aligned with or against any major power blocs"), Yugoslavia was thus able to export its architecture and modernist design aesthetics to many NAM member states. One of the most noticeable footprints in this regard made by Yugoslavia was in creating a huge amount of buildings and infrastructure across the African and the Middle Eastern landscape.

Spomenici bivše Jugoslavije kroz objektiv Kineskinje Xiao Yang

Motivaciju za svoje fotografije koje su proizvod strasti prema svetlosnim efektima i betonskim gradjevinama (concrete addict, kako sama sebe predstavlja) našla je i na prostorima bivše Jugoslavije, gde je upotrebom reflektora i posebnom tehnikom slikanja oživela mnoge zapuštene spomenike i dala poseban sjaj betonskim zgradama.

Većina fotografija je napravljena noću, što im je dalo dodatnu draž.

But the road to recovery has not been without bumps. Fugong fuchan (“resuming work, resuming production”), the government mantra of the past few weeks, has proceeded in fits and starts. Officials have struggled to restart the economy after an unprecedented nationwide shutdown, while also trying to prevent another outbreak.

Šta smo još naučili? Da svedočimo ne kraju istorije, već kraju kapitalizma. Sad jasno vidimo gde nas je dovelo povlađivanje kompanijama, bankama, hedž fondovima, opčinjenost privrednim rastom, džidipijem, raznim „Davosima“, gde su nas dovele privatizacije, subvencije, prekovremeni rad i ponižavajuće plate. U situaciju gde su zdravstvo i školstvo potpuno devastirani, decenijama unazađivani. Dobro se sećam jednog primera koga sam diskutovao sa mojim studentima u Edinburgu. Pitao sam ih da li vide išta neobično u tome što državni BBC plaća milijarde funti za prava prenosa Premijer lige, dok u isto vreme na tom BBC-ju gledamo proteste medicinskih sestara koje moraju da se hrane u narodnim kuhinjama, jer od svojih plata ne mogu da plate ni troškove stanovanja. Nisu videli ništa neobično. Tad, pre dve godine. Bojim se da bi danas njihov odgovor bio sasvim drugačiji. Doduše, i u Srbiji su ljudi mirno gledali kako se na svakom ćošku gradi neka crkva ili tržni centar, a sad smo u problemu što bolnice nemaju dovoljno kapaciteta i uslova za lečenje.

Several doctors in Saudi Arabia or with ties to its hospitals said the kingdom’s biggest current outbreaks were in vast slums around Mecca and Medina. They are home to hundreds of thousands of ethnically African or Southeast Asian Muslims whose parents or grandparents overstayed pilgrimage visas decades ago.

Most of the Saudi-born descendants of those migrants now form a permanent underclass with no legal status and limited access to health care or other government services. The largest number are believed to be descendants of refugees from Burma, now known as Myanmar, who arrived more than 70 years ago.

After the second world war, socialist Yugoslavia set out to reconstruct a land destroyed by fighting. Concrete residential blocks, hotels, civic centres and monuments shot up across the country in a show of power from a state between two worlds, western democracy and the communist east. Photographs by Marko Đurica/Reuters. Written by Ivana Sekularac.

According to Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi, activist Narges Mohammadi, who already suffered from serious health problems, has been transferred to a ward where the authorities have urged individuals convicted of violent crimes to harass her physically and mentally.

In the meantime, several dual and foreign nationals, including Iranian American businessman Siamak Namazi, British Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert and 66-year-old British Iranian Anoosheh Ashoori, remain imprisoned on trumped-up national security charges...

Fang Fang’s critical online account of the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan was widely celebrated before it was strongly condemned. This is a look into one of the biggest controversies in China’s online media spheres this spring, and a breakdown of how this acclaimed Chinese novelist went from an ally in times of lockdown, to a traitor during pandemic politics.
