Slovakia Closes Border Crossings With Ukraine Amid A/H1N1 Fears

WARSAW, Poland -- Slovakia will close on Sunday all border crossings with Ukraine, except for the car checkpoint in Vysne Nemecke, amid fears of spreading the A/H1N1 virus, the Slovakian interior minister said on Saturday.


As of November 6, a flu epidemic had left 135 people dead and over 871,000 infected in Ukraine, the ex-Soviet country's Health Ministry said on its website on Saturday.

However, Robert Kalinak said Bratislava was not currently considering sealing off the border with Ukraine.

"Our border guards may deny entry to the Schengen zone to foreigners with flu symptoms," Kalinak said.

Earlier in the day, the Slovakian Foreign Ministry advised nationals against travels to neighboring Ukraine over a flu epidemic.

Ukraine's Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said on Saturday she saw no need for declaring a state of emergency in the country over the epidemic, while Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) chief, Raisa Bohatyryova, said on Friday there were 'constitutional prerequisites' for that.

According to Slovakia's Health Ministry, 12,000 people had contracted flu over the past week, with the number of those infected with swine flu rising to 200 people.

SCANDALE

Les absences coïncident à la comparution dans le salon en réplaçant cette incidente en soi, c'est le reveil s'éffaçant; voici le rêveur en sortie lorsque la panique se déclare observateur néutrale, le président a vous compri, les criants invités se précipitent des tables d'hôtel. - Qu'elqu'un d'autre fut dans un réduit qui se propage déhors comme une infinité de petites vestibules, applaudissements de portes qui s'ouvrient où qui se frappent, une averse de distraction, elle ne cesse pas, la catatrophe est décommandée à cause de pluie continuelle.

SONNET XXXIX FOR KATIE

I went downtown, saw Katie in the nude
on Common Avenue, detracted soltitude
as it were, like a dream-state rosely hued,
like no one else could see her; DAMN! I phewed;

was reciprokelly then, thank heaven, viewed,
bestowed unique hard-on! but NOT eschewed,
contrair-ee-lee, she took a somewhat rude
'n readidy attude of Sex Prelude; it BREWED!

And for a start, i hiccuped "Hi!", imbued
with Moooood! She toodledooed: "How queued
your awe-full specie-ally-tee, Sir Lewd,
to prove (alas!), to have me finely screwed,

and hopef'lly afterwards beloved, wooed,
alive, huh? Don't you even DO it, Duu-uuude!"

Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

Consider Sex and time, procreation, reincarnation. Trigonometry! I envisage the time axis as the repetitive tangens function. Do you see what I mean? What can be tentatively derived from this notion? Clue: orgasm AND birth pangs at tan 0.
