Food / Food hygiene in Poland [60]

Do us all a favor and go already...you've posted 4 times since you said you would go.

Since you are here I changed my mind ;)

Croggers made some salient points in his initial post

I gave him kind answer. As I see you read too much between lines, but o.k I go it, I should always finish sentence with words "just don't get me wrong". I told him we have EU standards,and he said "I doub't that", funny huh?? (salient points, yeah right)

Language / IS "MURZYN" word RACIST? [686]

Julian Tuwim - Bambo

Murzynek Bambo w Afryce mieszka,
Czarną ma skórę ten nasz koleżka.

Uczy się pilnie przez całe ranki
Ze swej murzyńskiej Pierwszej czytanki.

A gdy do domu ze szkoły wraca,
Psoci, figluje - to jego praca.

Aż mama krzyczy: "Bambo, łobuzie!"
A Bambo czarną nadyma buzię.

Mama powiada: "Napij się mleka",
A on na drzewo mamie ucieka.

Mama powiada: "Chodź do kąpieli",
A on się boi, że się wybieli.

Lecz mama kocha swojego synka,
Bo dobry chłopak z tego Murzynka.

Szkoda, że Bambo czarny, wesoły,
Nie chodzi razem z nami do szkoły.

How Murzyn can be offensive, we have even poem about Murzynek, wrote by famous writer Tuwim. Murzyn is not nigger - it comes from word Maur, we use it from XIV century.. We can not say about black people who live in Poland Afroamericans...lol..maybe Afropolaki ?? Lol, but it's ridiculous.

USA, Canada / International Marriage (Polish guy with an American girl). Polish citizenship for her? [11]

Well do you knoe then by any chance if getting married gives you any privilages at all when it comes to working in the EU or not? (of course considering marring an EU citizen like myself)

I think yes. My friend has a husband not from EU, and he's working. It's important to get polish citizenship during these 5 years, after that time it is harder. In first case you can try to get it from Wojewoda ( that's what I heard), after 5 years only from president.

Wish you all best :)
Wedle propably meant green carders :D

Food / Food hygiene in Poland [60]

translation please. otherwise it goes in the bin.

Feel free.

I. This is an answer to: thevisitor.pl/index.php?id=194

3. Many people choose bottled water instead of tap. Are there diametric differences in their quality?

The tap water in Poland is subject to more restrictive laws than bottled water. It is regularly checked by health professionals of our country who decide to admit it as drinking water for general consumption. It is safe for health. The quality of water in the bottle corresponds to the manufacturer and should not contain pathogenic bacteria. (polki.pl/tester-brita_cala-prawda_artykul,10017907.html)

II. Answer to this: Polish Journal of Environmental Studies , (Vol. 14) (No. 3) 327-333

Union puts greater demands in relation to the content of chlorides and dissolved or emulsified hydrocarbons to extract the oil extractable. For example, Polish regulations allow the chloride content of 250 ml / l, and the EU - 200 ml / l.

Polish regulation established the classification of different ratios of surface waters. As suitable for abstraction of drinking water, it indicates a first-class water purity, while regulation does not contain requirements for the water abstracted for drinking.

Both (EU Directive and polish regulation) have the same 33 indicators. The Directive does not contain the 22 indicators that are present in the Polish regulation. The Regulation provides uniform water quality standards, independent of the scope of the treatment of water abstracted for drinking. 23 indicators included in the Polish standards meet the strictest standards of Directives covering simple water treatment in category A1, 5 A2, and 1 in category A3.

The polish Regulation contains additional indicators such as benzo (a) pyrene, chlorophyll, saprobowość, total phosphorus, total hardness, sodium, potassium, solutes, silver, chlorine free, thiocyanates, sulfides, formaldehyde, acrylonitrile, caprolactam, nickel, vanadium, pathogenic bacteria. However the Directive contains the following indicators are not included in the Regulation: bar, substances which can be extracted with chloroform, the number of coliforms at 370C in 100 ml of water, faecal streptococci per 100 m1 of water, salmonella, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

The Polish law on protection of groundwater is more restrictive than the provisions of the European Union

There is no equivalent in polish Regulation to the Council Directive [6] of water quality required for shellfish habitat. This is due to the fact that in Poland did not catch seep shellfish for consumption.

When no one dared to drink water from the tap, at least in Warsaw?

No one dared because it taste bad and is full of antybacterial chemistry, it's a capital..not Poland. All my life I was drinking water from the tap.

Language / Is the term 'Polak' derogatory?? [231]

Yet another "Pole" who can't speak Polish, and therefore doesn't know the difference between "Polak" and "Polack" - lol!

If you speak polish then it's o.k. to say Polak/Polka. But if you speak other language you shoud stick to it. It would look ridiculous If I started call english people - anglicy/ angielki. Anglicy are nice people, Angielki also :)

Food / Food hygiene in Poland [60]

Sellers should be subordinate to the law. There is also an organization that controls it and called Sanepid (Stacja Sanitarno Epidemiologiczna) which exist in every town. If selling food place does not apply to this law, then they have to pay a penalty, or such a place is closed. But I can not help if the buyer does not know basic rights. You can stop visiting these places or call Sanepid.

The question was about "standards" , not whether it is difficult or not to comprehend, and for sure not about you and your standards...but food standards. Got it???

Jestem leniwa is also right. Jestem wygodna means - i like comfort, because I am leniwa/lazy, I use people and devices that do things for me. So I'm not just lazy. Yes, I am lazy means leniwa.

there is a mess, they provide some examples but not the rules and you have to make conclusions on your own. Well for now I don't know any other books, I just checked it after Chrząszcz said he is using it (I took it from internet ;)) But I will look for better one.

What I found really funny, there is a chepter where yu learn about proffessions :) and they ask to combine pictures with the names of professions. One of them was bezrobotny which means unemployed...hehehehe.

You took example of some restaurant and talk about standards in Poland. Do you know what standards mean?? Food hygiene standards are regulated by law, not by restaurants.

standards to keep food for hours in hot place, just a little bit of positive thinking and less ignorance would help.

I highly doubt that. as johnny said

This is public forum you can write what you want. You asked what standards we have, I gave you an honest answer. What's your problem?? I told you we have EU standards, and you doubt that...well what can I say in this case??? You can make some research, go to "sanepid" and ask :) But if you did and still will have some doubts, then go to Spain and visit their best restaurants.

And to those who laugh, yes we had higher standarst before EU, for example our standards for clean water.
