Chinese Chengdu J-10: Steel Predator


The Jian-10 (J-10) is a multirole, all-weather fighter aircraft designed for both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. The aircraft was designed by the Chengdu Aircraft Design Institute (611 Institute) and built by the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of AVIC. The aircraft has been operational with the PLA Air Force (PLAAF) since 2003. The J-10 is available in the single-seat fighter variant J-10 and two-seater fighter-trainer variant J-10S. A further improved single-seat fighter variant designated J-10B reportedly made its maiden flight in February 2009.

The Devils Acrodunk, from Slovenia

Ajuda-te hoje!

Sim, nas leis da reencarnação, quase todos nós, os filhos da Terra, temos o passado a resgatar, o presente a viver e o futuro a construir.

Lembremo-nos, assim, de que, nas concessões da Providência Divina, o nosso mais precioso lugar de trabalho chama-se “aqui” e o nosso melhor tempo chama-se “agora”.

Detenhamo-nos, por isso, na importância das horas de hoje.

Ontem, perturbação.
Hoje, reequilíbrio.

Ontem, o poder transviado.
Hoje, a subalternidade edificante.

Ontem, a ostentação.
Hoje, o anonimato.

Ontem, a incompreensão.
Hoje, o entendimento.

Ontem, o desperdício.
Hoje, a parcimônia.

Ontem, a ociosidade.
Hoje, a diligência.

Ontem, a sombra.
Hoje, a luz.

Ontem, o arrependimento.
Hoje, a reconstrução.

Ontem, a violência.
Hoje, a harmonia.

Ontem, o ódio.
Hoje, o amor.

Diz-nos a sabedoria de todos os tempos - “Ajuda-te que o Céu te ajudará” -, afirmativa sublime que nos permitimos parafrasear, acentuando:

“Ajuda-te hoje, que o Céu te ajudará sempre”.

World Red Cross Red Crescent Day

World Red Cross Red Crescent Day is celebrated across the globe on 8 May each year. The date marks the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross, and the occasion offers an opportunity for the members of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to celebrate the power of humanity.

It is also a chance for the different partners in the Movement -- the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the 183 National Societies - to reflect on the humanitarian ideals of protecting human dignity and providing impartial assistance to people in need, wherever they may be.

Those ideals are expressed in the good deeds carried out by their tens of millions of volunteers each day. This year, World Red Cross Red Crescent Day is dedicated to these compassionate and dedicated individuals, who are at the heart of our efforts to help vulnerable people everywhere.
