temptation to ignore it as frivolous could come into your mind; but please

who work with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed
deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of (I will disclose amount
upon your reply) in my branch.

Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even early in the war, again
after the war another notification was sent and still no response came
from him, We later find out that General Mohammed Jassim Ali and his family
had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.

After further investigation it was also discovered that General Mohammed
Jassim Ali did not declare any next of kin in his official papers
including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me
the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his
deposit in my bank. So, (I will disclose amount upon your reply) is still
lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What
bothers me most is that, according to the laws of my country at the
expiration 3 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a
foreigner to stand as the next of kin to General Mohammed Jassim Ali so

this issue.

Super Saver wins 136th Kentucky Derby

Inserito da 2 Maggio, 2010 (0) Commenti

Si tratta di :news

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (AP)

The starting gate sprung open in the Kentucky Derby, with 19 horses scrambling for position. One jockey knew exactly where he was headed.

Calvin Borel deftly tucked Super Saver along the rail Saturday on a track turned into creamy peanut butter by heavy rain. Once again, he was in his favorite spot, getting a clear path all the way through the goo.

That’s why they call him “Bo-rail” and, for the third time in four years, he took the shortest path to the winner’s circle.

Borel found only one horse in his way, and once he steered Super Saver around front-running Conveyance, another Run for the Roses was his.

The most wide-open Derby in years ended with a sure thing – Borel crossing the finish line and punching the air with this right fist, this time raising it toward a leaden sky.

“I knew nothing was going to run him down,” he said, referring to his bay colt.

The jockey’s magic touch on his home track gave trainer Todd Pletcher his first Derby victory after 24 failures with a 2 1/2-length victory over Ice Box.

“Calvin Borel is a great rider anywhere he goes, but at Churchill Downs he’s even five lengths better,” Pletcher said. “He knows how to ride this track and gets along with his colt beautifully.”

Borel’s ride at his home track nearly duplicated the one he turned in last year aboard 50-1 shot Mine That Bird, except he and Super Saver went off at lower odds and were never in last place.

Now the trio heads to Baltimore for the Preakness on May 15.

“Calvin already said he’s going to win the Triple Crown,” Pletcher said, “so I guess we’d better go there.”

The Triple Crown was last won 32 years ago by Affirmed. The last Derby winner to break from Super Saver’s No. 4 post was 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew.

Borel almost pulled off his own personal triple last year. Mine That Bird won the Derby, then Borel switched to filly Rachel Alexandra to win the Preakness before going back to Mine That Bird in the Belmont Stakes. They finished third as the 6-5 favorite.

On Saturday, he was confident enough in his colt and his knowledge of the track to take him off the lead in the early going of the 1 1/4-mile race. In all but one of his six previous races, Super Saver had never been farther back than second in the early stages.

Borel knew that strategy wouldn’t work in a 20-horse Derby field on a tiring, sloppy track that had been pelted by heavy rain early in the day. So they hugged the rail in sixth place, while many of his rivals were well off the fence in the muck.

“We all know what he’s going to do,” said Robby Albarado, who finished 14th aboard Dean’s Kitten. “He just does it anyway.”

Said Borel: “I was just taught it’s the shortest way around.”

Super Saver was timed in 2:04.45 as the 8-1 second-choice behind favorite Lookin At Lucky, whose 6-1 odds tied Harlan’s Holiday in 2002 for the longest priced favorite in 136 runnings. He paid $18, $8.80 and $6.

Pletcher let out a whoop and slapped his hands together after his colt crossed the finish line, snapping a skid the Eclipse Award-winning trainer was eager to end. He watched the race alone on TV in the horseman’s lounge near the paddock.

“It will all soak in in a day or two,” he said. “Now that it’s happened, you just kind of don’t know what to feel or say.”

He seemed to have a lock on his first Derby win until expected favorite Eskendereya was withdrawn last weekend with a swollen leg. That left Pletcher with four horses in the race, but none as highly regarded.

His other finishers were: Mission Impazible, ninth; filly Devil May Care, 10th; and Discreetly Mine, 13th.

Pletcher’s only other Triple Crown race victory was in 2007 at Belmont with the filly Rags to Riches. The lack of a Derby win by the 42-year-old former assistant to D. Wayne Lukas was the most glaring omission on his resume and something he was constantly asked about.

It wasn’t for lack of trying.

In 2007, he saddled five in the Derby, with none finishing higher than sixth.

“It’s the one thing that was important to me,” he said. “The one thing I wanted to do while my parents were still here to see it.”

Borel is the first jockey to win three Derbys in four years; Bill Hartack won three from 1960-64.

“Calvin Borel is amazing. He is fearless,” trainer Bob Baffert said. “He takes control of the race, and you have to give him a lot of credit. He’s a great rider.”

Baffert should know. He thought he had his fourth Derby victory in the bag last year until front-running Pioneerof the Nile was overtaken in the stretch by Borel and Mine That Bird.

Baffert’s Lookin At Lucky wound up sixth, clearly compromised by starting on the rail. His other colt, Conveyance, finished 15th after setting the pace for more than three-quarters of a mile.

“I lost all chance at the post position draw when I drew the one,” Baffert said. “I had a bad feeling about it.”

Trained by Nick Zito, Ice Box returned $11.20 and $8. Paddy O’Prado was another neck back in third and paid $7.40 to show.

“I couldn’t get lucky enough to beat Calvin,” said Zito, a two-time winner.

Make Music for Me was fourth, followed by Noble’s Promise, Lookin At Lucky, Dublin, Stately Victor, Mission Impazible, Devil May Care, American Lion and Jackson Bend.

Discreetly Mine was 13th, followed by Dean’s Kitten, Conveyance, Homeboykris, Sidney’s Candy, Line of David, Awesome Act and Backtalk.

The crowd of 155,804 sought shelter early on from the rain, which had stopped by post time, with sun breaking through the clouds.

Asako ci segnala questa storiella

C’era una volta la figlia di un nobile, che si chiamava Janet. Janet aveva un carattere molto avventuroso, ed un giorno decise di uscire per andare ad esplorare una foresta cupa che si trovava vicino a casa sua. Girovagò a lungo, finché in una radura vide delle splendide rose selvatiche e pensò di coglierle per fare un regalo a sua madre e alle sue sorelle che non amavano andare in giro come lei. Aveva appena colto una rosa, quando venne fuori dalla terra un giovane cavaliere, che le disse: Come osi cogliere quelle rose? Janet gli rispose: Volevo fare un regalo a mia madre e alle mie sorelle! Allora il cavaliere rispose: In realtà, anche se devo vegliare su questa foresta, a te regalerei qualsiasi cosa. Janet gli chiese allora il suo nome e lui rispose: Mi chiamo Tam Lin! Janet ebbe paura, perché sapeva che apparteneva al popolo degli elfi. Ma Tam Lin le raccontò la sua storia.
Io sono umano come te. Tanti anni fa, ero in questi boschi con mio zio quando fui rapito dalla Regina degli Elfi: mi sentii di colpo stanco, mi addormentai e al mio risveglio mi trovavo nel regno degli Elfi. Da allora di giorno devo fare la guardia a questa foresta, e di notte devo tornare nel regno, dove sono prigioniero della Regina. Vorrei tanto che qualcuno mi aiutasse a vincere quest’incantesimo!
Janet gli rispose: Vorrei aiutarti, c’è un modo per farlo? Tam Lin allora le disse: Stanotte è Halloween: il popolo degli Elfi cavalca sulla Terra. Tu vai al crocevia prima di questa foresta ed aspettami passare. Poi aggrappati a me, e qualsiasi cosa succeda non mi lasciare!
Janet aspettò la cavalcata degli Elfi al crocevia e quando vide Tam Lin apparire, gli si buttò addosso e lo strinse a sé. Di colpo Tam Lin diventò una piccolissima lucertola, poi un serpente spaventoso, poi una barra di ferro arroventato, ma niente: Janet non lo lasciava andare. Allora la Regina degli Elfi capì che aveva perso.
Tam Lin rimase con Janet, la sposò e vissero per sempre felici e contenti, vicini a quella foresta magica che li aveva fatti incontrare.

Rosellina e Ledaccia

Cristina ci segnala questa storiella

C’era una volta un re che era rimasto vedovo con l’unica figlia, che si chiamava Rosellina. Poco tempo dopo si risposò con una donna che aveva un’unica figlia di nome Leda, ma che era così antipatica da essere soprannominata da tutti Ledaccia. In breve tempo Rosellina dovette cominciare a fare tutti i lavori più ingrati. Un giorno fu mandato nella foresta a prendere una scure che era stata dimenticata. C’erano tre colombe nella foresta, a cui Rosellina offrì del pane che aveva nella borsa.
Le tre colombe allora dissero: Voglio che sia bella il doppio che è! Voglio che i suoi capelli si trasformino in fili d’oro! E voglio che ogni volta che ride le escano delle perle dalla bocca! Rosellina tornò a casa e suscitò la gelosia della matrigna che mandò invece Ledaccia nel bosco. Ma Ledaccia cacciò via le tre colombe, che allora dissero: Voglio che diventi ancora più brutta! Voglio che i suoi capelli diventino un nido di spine! Voglio che ogni volta che ride esca dalla sua bocca un rospo.
Ledaccia riarrivò a casa e dopo che sua madre vide cosa le era successo, il suo odio per la figliastra aumentò. La fece imbarcare su una barchetta e la lasciò ai flutti. Rosellina naufragò su una spiaggia su cui trovò un cervo, un pino ed un usignolo, che diventarono i suoi unici amici. Per diverso tempo visse con loro, fin quando non passò di lì un principe, che si innamorò di lei e volle portarla al palazzo. Rosellina accettò a patto di portarsi dietro i suoi tre amici.
La notizia del suo prossimo matrimonio giunse alla sua vecchia casa. La matrigna e Ledaccia riuscirono a farsi ammettere in sua presenza e le buttarono addosso una camicia che la trasformò in un’oca d’oro. Allora l’usignolo e il cervo andarono da una maga che disse loro che far ritornare Rosellina normale dovevano cospargerla con gli aghi di pino.
Il principe era molto infelice per la perdita della sua fidanzata: ma un giorno sentì un usignolo che cantava fuori dalla sua finestra e un cervo che batteva. Gli aprì e loro entrarono ed andarono nella cucina, dove era nascosta l’oca d’oro, e la cosparsero degli aghi che avevano tenuto nelle zampe e nelle corna. La principessa ridiventò normale, sposò il principe e visse felice e contenta con lui ed i suoi amici della natura.

Il bambino d’oro e il bambino d’argento

Elisa ci manda questa storiella

Niame, il più potente fra i maghi del cielo, viveva in una fattoria posata sopra un bellissimo tappeto di nuvole. Un giorno decise di prendere moglie e invitò a presentarsi le quattro fanciulle più belle della sua tribù. Poi domandò a ciascuna:
– Che cosa faresti, per me, se io ti sposassi?
La prima, che si chiamava Acoco, dichiarò:
– Spazzerei la fattoria e governerei la tua casa.
E la seconda:
– Cucinerei ogni giorno per te le pietanze migliori.
E la terza:
– Filerei montagne di cotone e andrei tutti i giorni ad attingere l’acqua.
E la quarta:
– Io, Niame, ti darei un figlio tutto d’oro.
Naturalmente Niame scelse l’ultima e ordinò di preparare la cerimonia per le nozze. Acoco fu molto contrariata per la scelta fatta da Niame; si rodeva di invidia e di gelosia. Seppe tuttavia nascondere molto bene i propri sentimenti e riuscì a rimanere presso la giovane regina come dama di compagnia.
I due sposi vivevamo felicemente e avevano già preparato la culla in attesa del bambino tutto d’oro, quando Niame dovette partire, per visitare una sua grande fattoria. Proprio durante la sua assenza, alla regina nacquero due gemelli: uno tutto d’oro, l’altro tutto d’argento. La perfida Acoco, non appena li vide, prese i due bambini, li chiuse in un cestello e fuggi con essi in mezzo al bosco; poi nascose il cestello nel tronco vuoto di un albero. Nella culla al posto dei bambini, mise due orribili ranocchi. Quando Niame fu di ritorno, Acoco gli corse incontro:
– Affrettati, Niame! – gridò. – Vieni in casa a vedere i tuoi figli!
Niame si affrettò, ma quando vide nella culla le due brutte bestie, rimase male. Comandò che i ranocchi fossero uccisi e la regina esiliata proprio ai confini del regno, in una capanna solitaria.
Intanto il destino volle che un cacciatore passasse vicino all’albero morto dove stava nascosto il cestello con i due bambini dentro. L’uomo scorse un luccichio e si avvicinò.
– Che cosa è questo ?- si chiese.
– Siamo figli di Niame – risposero i bambini.
Il cacciatore raccolse il cesto, lo aprì, e restò ammirato davanti alla bellezza dei due piccoli. Era poverissimo, ma li portò a casa sua e li allevò con amore, senza rivelare a nessuno dove li avesse trovati.
I due bambini crescevano buoni, obbedienti e abili in tutte le cose. Quando il cacciatore aveva bisogno di denaro, raccoglieva la polvere d’oro e d’argento che cadeva di continuo dai loro corpi e andava in città a comperare quando gli era necessario. A poco a poco divenne un uomo molto ricco, e sostituì la misera capanna con un ampia fattoria.
Un giorno il cacciatore venne per caso a sapere che i due bambini erano figli del re e allora, sebbene a malincuore, decise di riportarli al padre. Giunti alla fattoria di Niame, il cacciatore chiamò il re fuori dal recinto e gli disse:
– Vieni a vedere quali esercizi sa fare questo ragazzo d’argento!
Niame uscì e restò ammirato dell’abilità straordinaria del giovane. Intanto il ragazzo d’oro aveva cominciato a cantare in modo meraviglioso e cantando narrava la propria storia: la promessa della mamma, la perfidia di Acoco e la bontà del cacciatore che li aveva allevati e amati come figli.
Niame stupito e commosso abbracciò i figli, fece richiamare la regina dall’esilio e ordinò alle schiave di pettinarla e rivestirla di abiti regali. Poi andò da Acoco, la trasformò in una gallina e la scaraventò sulla terra. Infine lodò molto il buon cacciatore e lo rimandò a casa carico di regali.
Ancora oggi i due figli di Niame vanno a fare il bagno nel grande fiume che scendeva a cascata sulla terra; allora un po’ della loro polvere d’oro e argento arriva fino a noi e quelli che la trovano diventano molto ricchi.
