Алтай. Чепошские ванночки — подарок Катуни!

Алтай. Чепошские ванночки — подарок Катуни! Пешая прогулка к «Чепошским ванночкам» была почти повседневной летней прогулкой для туристов 206 маршрута базы отдыха «Катунь», которая располагалась на 17 километре дороги Усть-Сема – Чемал. Я работала инструктором на «Катуни» с 1988 года, о чем есть запись в инструкторском удостоверении. Мы с группами туристов шли по тропе от «Каменного пляжа» базы до «Песчаного» — он теперь «принадлежит» базе отдыха «Турсиб». Далее двигались тропой вдоль реки Катуни до небольшого озерца, что лежит в ее пойме. За озерком по неизвестной мне причине закрепилось название «Чепошские…

Алтай. Солнечные часы в Каракольской долине!

Алтай. Солнечные часы в Каракольской долине! Каракольская долина – это один из сакральных центров древних цивилизаций, где издревле люди вступали во взаимодействие с иной реальностью. Здесь сосредоточены и храмово-погребальные комплексы (Башадар), и поминально-обрядовые (Боочи), и многокилометровые скальные алтари с древними петроглифами («Каракольская галерея»), и каменные изваяния. Каракольская долина находится в Онгудайском районе Республики Алтай. Она расположена по обоим берегам реки Каракол — правого притока р. Урсул, среди покрытых тайгой горных хребтов. Рельеф территории среднегорный, абсолютные высоты гор достигают 1500-2000 м. Долина простирается с запада на восток до 40 км, а…

Алтай. Усть-Сема 1935 год. Открытие моста через Катунь!

Алтай. Усть-Сема 1935 год. Открытие моста через Катунь! Просто удивительная фотография попалась мне на глаза. На ней запечатлено празднование открытия моста через Катунь в Усть-Семе, что происходило в 1935 году. На переднем и центральном плане кадра показан автомобиль ГАЗ ААА, на подножках которого справа и слева стоят двое мужчин: один в военной форме, другой в штатской одежде. Лица их не в унисон празднику и не в духе современного времени – серьезные и целеустремленные. По всей видимости, если вглядеться внимательно, то эти товарищи представители двух народов: русского и алтайского. Скорее всего,…

Если бы акулы были людьми…

Бертольд Брехт: «Если бы акулы были людьми…» Малоизвестное небольшое эссе великого немецкого драматурга Бертольда Брехта – не только литературное, но и мощное социальное и политическое произведение. И хоть написано в 1949 году, как нельзя более актуальное для современности: – Если бы акулы были людьми, – спросила г-на К. маленькая дочь его квартирохозяйки, – были бы они добрее по отношению к малым рыбам? – Наверняка, – ответил он. – Если бы акулы были людьми, они построили бы в море огромные ящики для маленьких рыбок, со всякого рода пищей в них, растительной…

Думай, иначе Алиса будет думать вместо тебя!

Думай, иначе Алиса будет думать вместо тебя! Инволюция Люди стремительно теряют способность к запоминанию телефонных номеров, счетов, адресов, паролей и вообще каких-либо названий и цифр. Хорошая память сейчас большая редкость, а всё потому, что всё это отдано на откуп умным устройствам. Цифровой ГУЛАГ Человечеству давно и надёжно помогают жить разнообразные электронные устройства. Все они созданы роботами, потому что человек уже не в состоянии (собственноручно) сделать все эти сложные микросхемы или хотя бы осуществить их пайку. Принцип работы этих устройств также неизвестен и непонятен подавляющему большинству людей. Тем более что, чтобы…

Twitter says it locked account of China’s U.S. embassy over Xinjiang-related tweet

SHANGHAI (Reuters) — Twitter has locked the account of China’s U.S. embassy for a tweet that defended China’s policies in the Xinjiang region, which the U.S. social media platform said violated the firm’s policy against «dehumanization».

Analysis: Biden’s first year could see record employment growth. More will be needed

By Jonnelle Marte (Reuters) — Joe Biden’s first year in office could go down in history as a record-breaker on the job-creation front, with an explosion in hiring expected as the coronavirus vaccine rollout allows Americans to emerge from a year in hiding. It may not be enough. Only slightly more than half of the 22 million jobs lost in the pandemic were regained by the end of last year. Even if 2021 hiring shatters the post-World War Two record of 4.27 million jobs created in 1984, roughly a quarter…

How offshoring rolled along under Trump, who vowed to stop it

By Timothy Aeppel PERU, Indiana (Reuters) — Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency four years ago, in part, by a promise to Midwest factory workers that he would stop companies like Schneider Electric SE from moving jobs out of the country. He didn’t stop them. Schneider’s plant, which produced electrical equipment near the center of this tiny town north of Indianapolis, closed in April, shedding 306 jobs. Regina McDowell, who worked there 42 years and said it was the only job she ever had other than teenage babysitting, said she…

After pause, Georgia Tech lowers boom on No. 20 Clemson

The last time that Georgia Tech took the court before Wednesday, the Yellow Jackets swamped Wake Forest in a game that gave hope to the idea that they had any remaining vestiges of their season-opening losses to Georgia State and Mercer. Seventeen nights later, having returned to McCamish Pavilion after four games postponed by COVID-19 protocols, Tech looked much like that same team. Before a scattered assembly of Tech students and fans, the Jackets took apart No. 20 Clemson, outplaying and outhustling the Tigers in an 83-65 win. Playing unselfishly…
