One newspaper on Thursday reveals the existent political pressures within the Romanian public service broadcasting, TVR. Elsewhere in the news, Italians are living proof that perception rules over reason, as Romanian gypsy is left to die on the streets of Naples. Alternative wind energy investments, are blocked by ornithologists in South Romania, one newspaper reads. On a lighter tone, the world's oldest functional laptop is found in Baia Mare, West Romania.

Cotidianul reveals the political pressures within the Romanian public service broadcasting, TVR. Adriana Gulea, editor and Doina Georgescu, producer, refused to assume responsibility on a news edition dated June 6. Their boss threatened to fire them otherwise.

As part of the news program, the Social Democratic vice president and chief of the electoral campaign Liviu Dragnea was invited even if at the time the electoral campaign was officially over. Dragnea was initially called in his quality as chief of a county council in Teleorman but the talks centered on the governing coalition intrigues.

According to sources, the moderator, Mihai Constantin received the "right" questions via telephone and e-mail and was pressured to address those questions to his guest. Finally, Dragnea talked for 12 minutes, even though the allocated time slot was 10.

Romania's National Audio-Visual Council publicly summoned TVR for the electoral topics addressed in the program, only one day before elections, even though the moderator specifically pointed out, from the beginning that no such topics will be addressed.

The Romanian National Television is currently undertaking an internal investigation to rule on the matter, the newspaper reads.

Evenimentul Zilei reads about the case of the Romanian gypsy, accidentally killed in an armed fight among two Italian gangs in Naples a few weeks ago. The newspaper quotes an Italian newspaper that published a video portraying the last 15 minutes in the life of the Romanian.

The images reveal a blunt truth, that when it comes to Romanian immigrants, Italians seem to be lead by prejudice and bad perceptions rather than reason or humanity. Even though the man's wife was screaming for help, no one bothered to call the paramedics, or attempt to help the two out.

What is more, the newspaper reads, some even stopped to take some pictures of the dying man while other preferred to flee the scene.

The newspaper points out that the perception of the Romanian community in Italy is influenced by the media's aggressiveness towards them and their excessive mediatization of crimes, thefts or rapes committed by Romanian illegal immigrants.

Alternative wind energy investments in Dobrogea, South Romania are blocked by ornithologists, Romania Libera reads. The newspaper reads about the area's tremendous potential for alternative wind energy. However, it seems that 80% of the land is included in the Nature 2000 protected sites.

Even if investors requested technical assistance from ornithologists, to protect the wild birds in the area, experts disapprove of the project all together. Scientific studies put forward revealed the potential of the area and the need to protect the ecological spaces included in Nature 2000.

Important European companies are currently investing in wind mill parks across Romania. Currently, in Dobrogea, there are 12 functioning wind mills that have been producing energy for a few months now. Specialists declared that the wind mills are working properly, which proves the potential of the area.

At their turn, ornithologists declared that the development of wind mill parks is chaotic and will not protect wild species in the area. They argue that the area is an important transit route for wild birds, to and from the Danube Delta.

On a lighter tone, Romanian TV Realitatea TV and Intel discovered the world's oldest functional laptop in Baia Mare, West Romania within the Oldest Notebook competition, Cotidianul reads. The owner, Ioana Herbel, received as a prize, one of the top laptops on the market and Raluca Liana Mitroi from Bucharest, owner of the oldest minicomputer in Romania, received an Intel processor.

Intel launched an international competition and found that the oldest laptop is an Epson HX 20 notebook, which weights 1.6 kg, was announced in 1981 and launched on the market in 1982.
