11/9 ΤΟ ΧΡΟΝΙΚΟ ΤΟΥ ΔΡΑΜΑΤΟΣ.

Hijackers begin journey

Portland International Jetport, Maine. Two of the 19 hijackers begin their journey. The moment is caught by a security camera, as Abdulaziz al-Omari, (centre) and ringleader Mohammed Atta, (right) pass through the airport checkpoint before flying to Boston, where they will board American Airlines Flight 11 - the plane they and three companions plan to hijack.

Security, American 77

Dulles International Airport, Washington suburbs. A second team of five hijackers is caught on camera as they pass through security for American Airlines Flight 77, bound for Los Angeles. This clip shows Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. In the past few days, both men have been placed on a watch list - but airport security do not know this.

American 11 hijacked

The hijackers stab at least two crew members and one passenger while snatching control of the jet, 15 minutes after take-off. The alarm is raised five minutes later by flight attendant Betty Ong. She uses the airphone to call American Airlines, telling them: "The cockpit is not answering. Somebody's stabbed in business class - and I think there's Mace."

F-15 fighter jet over New York

Military notified

Air traffic control contact the military authorities after receiving a transmission from American 11, apparently intended for the passengers: "If you try to make any moves, you'll endanger yourself and the airplane. Just stay quiet." A hijack is apparent. Two F-15s are scrambled nine minutes later (library picture, 6 Nov).

UA 175 hijacked

The pilots are killed and Mace and bomb threats are used as the hijackers take control of a second jet. At 8:58 it begins to head for New York. A passenger calls his father: "I don't think the pilot is flying the plane ... I think they intend to go to Chicago, or someplace, and fly into a building. Don't worry, Dad - if it happens, it'll be very fast."

North Tower of the World Trade Center

North Tower

American 11 smashes into the World Trade Center's North Tower at 440mph (700km/h). All 92 passengers and nine crew on board the Boeing 767 are killed, as are many office workers. People above the 92nd floor of the 110-storey skycraper are trapped. The plane's fuel creates a massive fireball. It travels as far down the building as the lobby level on West Street.
Firefighters at the scene

Fire teams at scene

Firefighters enter the lobby of the North Tower. They find windows blown out and many people with burn injuries. They begin a rescue mission, and start ascending the stairwells. By 9:00 the fire department chief is at the scene and 235 firefighters have been dispatched.

American 77 hijacked

American 77 changes course at 8:54 as the hijackers take control of a third aircraft. The Boeing 757's transponder is turned off two minutes later. Passengers begin calling loved ones to report the emergency on board - they say the hijackers used knives during their attack.
Police officer evacuating civilians

NYPD deploys hundreds

The New York Police Department raises nearly 1,000 officers to deal with the disaster. Two helicopters have been dispatched already and two police officers present in the North Tower on impact are urging people to evacuate. The Port Authority Police Department too has officers at the scene. By 9:00 they order an evacuation of all civilians in the WTC.

South Tower

Evacuation is under way as United 175 hits the South Tower of the World Trade Center at 540mph (870km/h). The Boeing 767 slices through floors 77 to 85. All 65 passengers and crew die instantly. One stairwell to the upper floors remains passable, although many people climb towards to the roof, hoping for rescue there.

President told

"A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack," White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card tells the president. For another five to seven minutes, George W Bush remains in the classroom at Emma E Booker Elementary School, in Sarasota, Florida, where he is visiting children during a reading lesson.
Map of United 93's route

Bush's first statement

In his first, brief, statement on the multiple attacks on the United States, the president promises to: "Conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act. Terrorism against our nation will not stand." His immediate thought is to return to Washington from Florida.

VP in the bunker

Fears that American 77 is approaching the White House see the Secret Service evacuate Vice President Dick Cheney to the bunker. Later, Mr Cheney advises the president against an immediate return to the capital. The vice president (right) is pictured here in the White House Operations Center on 9/11.

Pentagon hit

American Airlines Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon at full throttle, killing all 64 passengers and crew, and 125 civilian and military personnel at work in the building. Located just outside Washington DC, the five-sided complex is the nerve-centre of the US military and one of the largest office buildings in the world.

South Tower collapses

Less than an hour after it was hit, the 110-storey building takes 10 seconds to collapse. No one left inside survives. Clouds of choking dust and debris are strewn across southern Manhattan. About 600 people in and around the building are killed. Most of them worked at or above the impact zone.

United 93 crash site

United 93 crashes

Fire-scorched trees mark the spot in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United 93 hit the ground. Hijackers crash the plane when faced with losing control over it. During the flight, passengers and crew phoned loved ones and were told of the attacks in New York. This knowledge led to a desperate fightback.

North Tower collapses

The North Tower collapses with the same shocking speed as the South Tower. Around 1,400 people die in and around the building. Like the South Tower, most of the fatalities are at or above the impact zone. Sixteen people in stairwell B survive the building's destruction. In this clip the BBC's Stephen Evans reports from the scene.
Empty airport, Dayton, Ohio

US airspace closed

By around 12:30 US airspace is closed for the first time in the nation's history. All non-emergency civilian aircraft are grounded. Tens of thousands of people are stranded at airports around the country.
George Bush on Air Force One

President returns to DC

The President arrives in Washington, over nine hours after he left Florida. He has spent much of the day travelling between various safe locations on Air Force One. Here, he is shown talking to the vice president by phone.

Bush's address

Addressing the nation from the White House, President Bush sums up one of the darkest days in US history. He tells the nation: "These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat, but they have failed."
George Bush and the NSC

Bush meets with NSC

After the president's sombre address to the nation, he holds a meeting of the National Security Council. President Bush makes it clear that he intends to punish those groups who had planned and executed the attacks - as well as any nations which harbour them.

Lacoste brand 'seeking Anders Breivik clothes ban'

Anders Behring Breivik leaves court, 25 JulyAnders Behring Breivik (L) wore the French label as he left court
Lacoste has reportedly asked Norwegian police to prevent mass killer Anders Breivik wearing the brand in court.
The French clothing label wrote to Norway's police authorities to make the request, Dagbladet newspaper reports.
Far-right extremist Breivik has admitted killing 77 people during bomb and gun attacks in July.
Breivik - who has reportedly said Lacoste is his favourite brand - has been pictured wearing the label since his arrest.
Lacoste has not yet commented on the reports that they are worried by the association with their brand.
On his way to be questioned over the killings, Breivik was pictured wearing a red Lacoste jumper.
In addition, he was wearing a black Lacoste sweater in other publicly available images.
According to Dagbladet, police prosecutor Christian Hatlo has confirmed that Lacoste has contacted the police.
"Yes, we have been contacted by Lacoste, but what they have asked remains between us," Mr Hatlo is reported as telling the newspaper.
The move by the clothing company follows that of US brand Abercrombie and Fitch, which offered to pay the rowdy, hard-partying cast of an MTV reality show not to wear its clothes.
It said their association with the clothing was contrary to the "aspirational nature" of its brand and might be "distressing" to the brand's fans.
It singled out one cast member's penchant for the label as particularly damaging, and said it had also offered money to MTV producers to encourage the cast to wear different brands.

Επικίνδυνο...μην αγγίζετε....

Έτσι είναι πια τα πράγματα...

ΕΠΙΚΊΝΔΥΝΑ !!!

Οφθαλμίατρος σήμερα.  Και το ραντεβού του γιου μου για τις μία το μεσημέρι ήταν ήδη κανονισμένο για το ετήσιο check up.

Μπαίνοντας μέσα στο ιατρείο και στον χώρο επισκεπτών...μας είχαν προλάβει άλλοι και μάλλον τα ραντεβού μας θα καθυστερούσε.

Εκεί λοιπόν, βρήκαμε μια νέα όμορφη κυρία με δυο παιδιά στον ένα καναπέ, έναν κύριο συνταξιούχο σε μια πολυθρόνα και δυο άλλες κυρίες σε έναν άλλο καναπέ.


Ευτυχώς στον ένα τριθέσιο καθίσαμε και εμείς μαζί με τις δύο κυρίες.....


Η τηλεόραση έπαιζε ειδήσεις....
Ξέρετε, αυτές τις ευχάριστες ειδήσεις των ημερών μας.


Η κυρία δίπλα μας ρύθμιζε και την ένταση με το κοντρόλ...για να ακούμε καλύτερα τα χάλια μας.




Δεν άργησε πολύ και ξεκίνησε η κουβέντα για τα οικονομικά δράματα σε βάρος των απλών πολιτών, δηλαδή σε βάρος μας.

Ο κύριος απέναντι ήταν έτοιμος για καβγά.  Μιλούσε και κοκκίνιζε ολόκληρος.
Από τις κυρίες δίπλα μας, μιλούσε μόνο η μία.  Αυτή με το κοντρόλ στα χέρια.  Η άλλη, που ήταν μάλλον η μητέρα της ήταν κουφή....άρα και ευτυχισμένη !!!!



Η πεντάμορφη, στον άλλο καναπέ με τα παιδιά της, ήταν πρασινο-σκουφίτσα.  Όσο η κουβέντα ήταν περί ανέμων και υδάτων, ήταν λαλίστατη.....
Όταν ο κύριος  με το κατακόκκινο πρόσωπο άρχισε να βρίζει και να εύχεται στον Πρωθυπουργό να πάει από εκεί που ήρθε..., η κυρία δεν ξανάβγαλε τσιμουδιά.



Εγώ από την άλλη, προσπαθούσα να κρατήσω λίγο τις ισορροπίες γιατί φοβόμουν μην πάθει τίποτα ο κύριος απέναντί μου, αλλά και η εκ δεξιών κυρία που έκανε ζάπινγκ μετά μανίας.....Σχεδόν σαν τρελαμένη....

Έλεγα και γω τα δικά μου, αλλά εκεί που μιλούσα για τον πρωθυπουργό είπα απλά.....
-ας πάει στο καλό ο άνθρωπος και να μας γράφει......

Τι ήταν να ευχηθώ να πάει στο καλό.....

Ο κύριος φούντωσε σαν κόκκινο μπαλόνι, έτοιμο να σκάσει.....



-Όχι να μην πάει στο καλό....γιατί να πάει στο καλό.....
Στο διάολο να πάει.  Εκεί και να μην γυρίσει πίσω.
Άκου να πάει στο καλό.....
Αυτός που κορόιδεψε όλους τους Έλληνες και κάθε μέρα μας ξεζουμίζει την σύνταξη και το πορτοφόλι μας με όλα τα νέα φορολογικά και τα χαράτσια που έρχονται.....
Να πάει στον αγύριστο......



Η πεντάμορφη πρασινοσκουφίτσα....μούγκα.

Η κυρία με το κοντρόλ και το ζάπινγκ...βαρέθηκε να ακούει ειδήσεις και μάλλον προτιμούσε να μείνει κλειδωμένη μέσα στα προβλήματά της και μας έβαλε τον Frampton.  Έναν παλιό ροκά της εποχής μου, που εκείνη την ώρα τραγουδούσε κάπου στα αζήτητα.....



Ο κύριος με τα κόκκινα μάγουλα δεν έλεγε να σταματήσει.
Σκέτος χείμαρρος.  Ήταν εμπορο-καπετάνιος πριν πάρει σύνταξη και Νεοδημοκράτης παλιός.

Μας ανέλυσε την υπόθεση απόσυρσης του Κώστα Καραμανλή, την τότε προκήρυξη των εκλογών για το Εθνικό συμφέρον αλλά και την δολοφονική απόπειρα εναντίον του και όλα τα επακόλουθα.....
Χωρίς σταματημό και άλλο σάλιο στο στόμα....



Αργούσε....η οφθαλμίατρος.  Η ώρα ήταν πια δύο παρά τέταρτο.

Επιτέλους, άνοιξε η πόρτα και ήταν η σειρά του αναψοκοκκινισμένου κυρίου.

Ξαλαφρωμένος πια, και με πηδηματάκια εφήβου, εκσφενδονίστηκε από την πολυθρόνα, αισθητά πιο ανάλαφρος, αφού μας είχε βγάλει τα εσώψυχα του αλλά και όλο του το στρες....




Ψυχοθεραπευτική αναμονή για τον ίδιο αλλά και για τους υπόλοιπους, εκτός βέβαια από την πρασινοσκουφίτσα...η οποία είχε το ....γνώριμο σε όλους μας .."καρφιτσωμένο χαμόγελο" στα χείλη...με δόση βλακείας ανακατεμένο.

Δεν είναι εποχή να ακουμπάς στην πλάτη κανέναν τυχαία αλλά και εσκεμμένα γιατί ο κοσμάκης εκτός του ότι δεν εμπιστεύεται ούτε και την σκιά του....έχει και ένα θολό βλέμμα που χρήζει ψυχολογικής υποστήριξης και όχι όνο οφθαλμιάτρου....

Οι μόνοι απαθείς σήμερα, ήταν η κουφή κυρία μαζί με την  πρασινοσκουφίτσα.



Η πρώτη λόγω γήρατος και η δεύτερη λόγω ηλιθιότητας......

Προσοχή !!!!!

Ταύροι....σε υαλοπωλείο οι Έλληνες......

ΓΕΡΜΑΝΙΚΟΙ ΠΟΠΟΙ !!!!!!

skinny dipping

In Germany, “nakation” enthusiasts have flocked to Dankerode, a small town west of Berlin, where the first nudity-allowed hiking trail opened in May 2010. The 18km stretch welcomes clothed tourists as well, though signs warn unsuspecting hikers they may see more than just wildlife on the trail. Go now before the average high temperature drops to below 16C in October.

Τα μεγαλύτερα αυτιά στον κόσμο !!!!

This black and tan Coonhound has got no excuse for not hearing when he's called. Why? Because he's got the longest ears of any dog in the world!
Eight-year-old Harbor's left ear is 31.1cm long, while his right ear is even longer, at 34.3cm.
They've made him a bit of a celeb in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado, but having such big ears isn't easy.
As a puppy, he used to trip over them and roll down the stairs, and these days he gets a LOT of attention.Harbor is the dog with the longest


Harbor's owner, Jennifer Wert, said: "Cars will literally stop in the street to take a closer look and get a picture.
"Often strangers will tug his ears which he really doesn't enjoy."
Coonhounds are known for having long ears, but they're actually designed to help the dogs smell by sweeping different scents nearer their noses.

Alzheimer's tests using pen and paper still the best

Tests for Alzheimer's disease

The study, published Monday in the Archives of General Psychiatry, found two measures on brain scans that were indicative of a higher probability of declining from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's disease. But a change in the participants' scores on tests that measured functional ability showed a larger rate of decline than did any changes in biomarkers. Two specific cognitive tests — the Functional Assessment Questionnaire and the Trail Making Test, part B — appeared to predict most accurately whether an individual would develop Alzheimer's disease.
