[Poem] In the soul



Tracking my family roots I have found a rare book of poetry. I think that nobody before was translating Polish Jews poems to English, so I have decided to translate some. On beginning 'In the soul' of Jonatan Ratosz.
In the Soul

Justice is going, going before him,
is purifying a path for him, is carrying a shield
Justice before him in the darkness
Justice is going before him

to the God of sea's winds,
deeply, in the bearing twins of the Expanses
He in one movement of the wing is summoning evenings,
his white beard is rising like the foam

You have picked up yourself in the lights, lighted up by the gods,
and now you shall descend together with her,
with the lantern of the God, with the sun –

as far as the bottoms of the almighty waters,
to the place from which spreads up all the dust of the world,
to the beginning of roads, leading to the sky
and descending into undergrounds

A man has discovered his bitterness,
has counted exactly her rods
and is now not caring of good of his household

Justice is going, going before him,
is purifying a path for him, is carrying a shield
Justice before him in the darkness
Justice is going before him

Oh You, always and everywhere in the wingless flight,
that is judging the rims of the Earth,
that is making justice in your chasms
bless that one, which is coming to his fathers,

bless the soul of you servant,
that has gone to rest.

Justice is going before him
Justice before him in the darkness
is carrying a shield on paved path

Warrning: FAKE NOT SHAKE


We was happy, for a moment, that we found an investor. We have made a little investigation and found out that our Sheik is just a FAKE. Beware!

The person contacted us saying that he is Sheikh Khalid bin Abdulaziz bin Ahmed Al-Thani from Alqurnh Development Company QSC operating in Doha, Qatar. He has offered an investment into our project.

After a week of answering his questions we have been told that our application has been accepted and now we are going to be paid a money. However, first we need register a joint-venture company in Qatar.

That was strange but even stranger was a lawyer - - that we needed to contact to register our company. He has authorized by providing a scan of his passport.


That was strange. Moreover while he has not asked yet for a money in documents he has sent to you there was suggestion that we need to pay for legal proceeding something around 2000$. 
That was really suspected. We made a check and found out this article in French in which somebody is describing his adventure with that guys. It was same story but the lawyer had different name.
We had written then to the 'Sheik' confronting him with the article. He has written that this is untrue and that they are 'blackmailing' him. He has written also that they have companies in their portfolio that shows that they are true investors. 
We have replied that we will verify this and will call this companies but will call a police.

RaDoha


Bad news is that we did not passed a final of Den Haag contest but have some other positive news on that matter. Some time ago one of Sheiks from Qatar has contacted us and offered an investment.

We are discussing that since a week and with every day we are closer and closer to the final agreement. We think we will receive some decision on that due the next week. 

But are not losing time, as usual. We have started our Beta Tests and now more that 60 Beta Testers has been registered from which around 15 is actively looking for bugs in our software.

Beta


I did not written anything on my blog since long time but i had hands full of work. Beside notable progress on Jaaz Portal I returned to my old work on drug policy reform.

But let start from Jaaz. We had announced Beta Tests and around 40 people has applied for it. We will need to choose 20 of them that will test our product before official launch in September.

Beside this we have new homepage of Jaaz company, finally in English. We have also started Jaaz Alliance project that will be a formal association of companies and organizations running the Jaaz Portal. It will support development of it.

Work on Non-Govermental Organization is something on what I had spend a years of my life. It was however not business one but drug policy reform. And the fruit of this work is my latest project on this area - the Harm Reduction Convention on which I will write more in another post. For now I invite you to check our homepage. Maybe You will join us?
