The latest case won is Balan vs Moldova. This man won 5 000 euros for moral and material damages and 2 000 more for expenses. The case was about his photo of the Soroca castle. The moldavian authorities used this picture on the local id cards (buletin). And when he asked a recompense for that or at least concluding a contract with him, they refused, considering that they are entitled to use anything they want. This guy went to the court of human rights and he won.
This is not just and abuse from the public authorities, this is a national shame, they were using his picture on thousands of id cards, and didn't even ask him. And it is strange that no other court in Moldova recognized his rights.

As the situation with the Presidential elections is getting more tensioned each day, both sides are trying to find new mechanisms and methods of obtaining more votes. These days I found a website which was exactly about that. It is about different democratic candidates, such as Promote Hillary Clinton, or Barack Obama. Americans have this really powerful tradition to support their candidate till the end. They believe and trust him, and do their best to promote their favorites. On that website, about Promote Hillary Clinton, they offer different useful stuff for their supporters, such things like t-shirts with the pictures of democrats, pens, vote cards, sticky notes, and address labels. Logically all these items contain the emblem of the Democratic Party. The people which support the democrats can by these stuff and use it for promoting their party. This is such a culture to have all this stuff, as it represents a way of expressing your opinion, your political views. This is a way to be free, to fight for your beliefs. That is how you decide the future of your own country and your family. This is how you can stand for your rights, your opinion, protect your ideas and values. In

As history was my favorite class at high school, it became very useful for me nowadays. Knowing history offers a person huge chances of understanding many things in his daily life, not only things about himself, but understanding processes that happen all around the world.
Many events that happen today, that we see on television, are something very familiar. For example some political reforms, or changes in some government, this is what was happening for a long time. HISTORY IN THE NEWS is everywhere. Just try to pay attention and see how a company is developing for example, being a small one from the beginning it starts to use some principles and methods which other companies used in past. This is how history helps a small company to develop. Or when you are watching “the primaries” in the news, you see how democrats fight the republicans. And you understand that this is a historical battle which lasts for a long period of time. This is HISTORY IN THE NEWS. As more you find out about such stuff, as the more intelligent you become. Knowing history is really helpful. All the political and economical processes are basing on some theoretical data which you can learn only from history.
