James Bond girls

In certain quarters of Manhattan these days, it's not unusual to encounter characters that seem to have come right out of a James Bond film: beautiful young Russian girls with revealing outfits and hidden agendas. They're the latest status accessory in New York's power game, the mistresses of the Masters of the Universe. The fact that they're dangerous -- wild, unpredictable, on the lookout for a bigger and better deal -- only seems to increase their appeal. So certain women on the East Side are not seeing their husbands as much as they used to. "How old is your Russian?" one just-abandoned uptown wife asked another not long ago.

Russia, Racism and Pushkin

The greatest gift Hannibal gave to Russia was a great grand son named Alexander Pushkin. And the greatest gift that Pushkin gave to white Russian was literature written in Russian. Without Pushkin the black poet of Russia there would have never had been some of the most famous poets of Russian history. The white racists need to remember — that the next time they see a book written in Russian. They should say to themselves we own this to a black man named Alexander Pushkin. Then realize that when they attack a black person in a hate crime they are attacking part of Puskin’s African genetics.

The perpetual struggle between Capitalism and Socialism

Both sides raise interesting points. A democrat would argue that social welfare programs better humanity by raising the standard of living among all people. A republican would argue that such programs only further the degradation of society by encouraging indolence. Whereas, competitiveness and self preservation (broadly defined as betterment of one-self, rather than a simple objective of survival) are hallmarks of human nature which must be emboldened at all costs. However, such differences are not always black and white and a balance is critical to the progress of humanity.

Muddy orange

Ukrainians might well wonder why they bothered. The bright 2004 Orange Revolution has turned a muddy, burnt orange shade now that President Yushchenko has been forced to take his arch-foe into the heart of his Government.

Viktor Yushchenko, the hero of the Orange Revolution and passionate advocate of closer links with the West, has finally picked the pro-Russian Viktor Yanukovych as his next Prime Minister.

Today Ukraine’s parliament will vote on the nomination. But the outcome is all but a formality — and for Yushchenko it is a catastrophe.

Kazan "off screen"


I didn't post such nice material for a long time! Photo exhibition Kazan "off screen" is about capital of Tatarstan - city that recently celebrate his 1 000 day of birth.

All photos are beautiful and comic, but you should know some Russian to understand image text: "Dear brothers and sisters! Candels buyed on the street are not valide in cathedral! Don't use it please.", "Muslim will do massage", "People in building" etc.
