Он был героем СССР!? Александр Руцкой рассказал, почему приватизация 90-х это преступление!?

Он был героем СССР!? Александр Руцкой рассказал, почему приватизация 90-х это преступление!? «Я имею право послать любого, потому что у меня чистая биография», –говорит Александр Владимирович. Работая с Ельциным, он докладывал ему о всех финансовых нарушениях чиновничьего аппарата того времени, о ползучей коррупции, которая пропитывала все рычаги власти. Тогда, этот беспредел остановить не удалось, может быть пришло время продолжить начатое? Александр Руцкой Казалось бы, мы всё и про всех знаем, но есть преступления, не имеющие срока давности. Каждый день, каждую минуту, в настоящем, прошлом и даже будущем, мы отвечаем за…

Странная смерть Бенджамина Ротшильда!?

Странная смерть Бенджамина Ротшильда!? О смерти Бенджамина Ротшильда СМИ сообщили 16 января. Он умер на 58 году жизни от остановки сердца в своём швейцарском поместье, как об этом сообщила семья банкира. Широкой огласки смерть члена французской ветви финансовой династии Ротшильдов не получила, а на похоронах присутствовали только близкие родственники. Эти обстоятельства и побуждают нас проанализировать его ранний уход из жизни более внимательно. Об этом на ТВ «Переправа» поделился со своими слушателями В.Ю. Катасонов. Бенджамин Ротшильд Нужно отметить, что Бенджамин Ротшильд один из самых молодых и влиятельных Ротшильдов. Его биографы были удивлены такой…

У кого князь Юрий Долгорукий… отобрал Москву?

У кого князь Юрий Долгорукий… отобрал Москву? Мы привыкли считать, что основателем Москвы является князь Юрий Долгорукий. Но есть и другие версии. Так, во времена царя Алексея Михайловича была записана легенда, согласно которой Долгорукий выступает вовсе не градостроителем, а захватчиком чужих земель. «Обед силен…» Официальной датой основания российской столицы является 4 апреля 1147 года, когда, согласно Ипатьевской летописи, состоялась встреча Юрия Долгорукого и его троюродного брата, северского князя Святослава Ольговича, в «Москове», в честь которой был дан «обед силен». Однако археологические находки свидетельствуют о том, что Москва как укрепленный город…

Millions struggle without power as deadly cold snap grips US

Washington (AFP) – Millions were left without power as a winter storm gripped the southern and central United States Tuesday with record-low temperatures in ill-prepared areas, and a tornado claiming three lives. More than 20 storm-related deaths have been registered so far, including in traffic accidents in Texas, Kentucky and Missouri, according to local media. In hardest-hit Texas — where freezing conditions prompted utility companies to implement rotating blackouts — a woman and girl died from carbon monoxide poisoning after using a car to generate heat, according to NBC News.…

The Personal Case to #GetInvolved

In 2018, I had a personal “eureka moment” that changed everything about the direction of my life: If I died, and got to the judgment throne and was asked – what did you do with all the talent and skills that I blessed you with? Will “setting up businesses, taking care of my family, and helping those around me” suffice? I imagined that there will be a follow-up question – what did you do to make your country, Nigeria a better place, because taking care of yourself and those closest…

Why MTN is partnering African Union to help vaccinate 7m health workers

Every year, the National Fire Protection Association puts out a report about injuries to firemen in the United States. In 2019, that report showed that 60,825 firefighter injuries occurred in the line of duty, an increase of 4 percent over the 2018 injury total. A good percentage of these injuries occur at fire grounds simply because no matter how much training firemen receive and how much protective gear they get, they have a job that often involves risking their lives for the lives of others. In very similar fashion, health…

Dubai princess says she’s being held hostage at villa by her ruling father

A Dubai princess who attempted to flee the city in 2018 says she’s being held against her will at a villa, where she’s banned from going outside or communicating with others. Princess Latifa Al Maktoum, 35, says her father, billionaire Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ordered her unconventional detention after the failed escape, the BBC reported. Latifa filmed a series of clandestine videos in a bathroom at the villa and sent them to her allies with the Free Latifa group, which shared them with the BBC. “Every day I…

France maintains Sahel force to ‘decapitate’ Al-Qaeda groups

President Emmanuel Macron pledged on Tuesday to keep French troops in the Sahel region of western Africa, to help to “decapitate” Al-Qaeda-linked insurgent groups that local governments are struggling to hold back. But while Macron said there would be no “immediate” drawdown of the 5,100-member Barkhane force, he made clear that France expected to have a far lighter presence over time. “Changes that are likely to be significant will be made to our military deployment in the Sahel when the time comes, but they will not be made immediately,” Macron…

Mia Farrow: I’m scared of Woody Allen

Mia Farrow is “scared” of her ex-partner Woody Allen. The ‘Hannah and Her Sisters’ star was in a relationship with the 85-year-old filmmaker between 1980 and 1992, and almost 30 years after their split, the actress has said she fears her former partner. Mia spoke as part of the new HBO documentary series ‘Allen v. Farrow’, which explores the breakdown of their relationship – which began when Allen had an affair with his now-wife and Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn – and the child sexual abuse allegations made by their…

Thomas Markle wishes estranged daughter, Duchess Meghan, a ‘healthy birth’ of second child

Duchess Meghan’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, has wished her a “successful, healthy birth” of her second child. The 39-year-old royal announced over the weekend she is expecting her second child with her husband Prince Harry – with whom she already has 21-month-old son Archie – and now her father, whom she has been estranged from since tying the knot with Harry in 2018, has sent his well wishes to the couple. Speaking to CBS TV’s Inside Edition, Thomas said: “I wish Meghan and Harry a successful, healthy birth and I…

As Trump Plaza implosion looms, stakes are high for what comes to Atlantic City next

As Trump Plaza stood for one last day, Atlantic City locals remembered the casino’s past while ruminating on its possible future. The once-majestic casino is now a shell of its former self, reduced to only the concrete skeleton and black tarps, and demolition crews finished up their final prep work for the blast. Opened in 1984, the Plaza was once the place to be, former bartender Mike Pellettieri told NJ Advance Media. “They were the best years of my life,” Pellettieri said of working at the Plaza, where he served…

Cashing in on Sino-US ‘green’ race

After taking office as the president of the United States last month, Joe Biden has been translating his campaign promises on climate change into action, with the support from the young, progressive wing in the Democrat party. Among the highlights in his proposals include pledges for net-zero emissions and a 100% clean energy economy by 2050 — a clear reversal from Donald Trump, a climate change denier who had a cosy relationship with the fossil fuel industry. In his first week at the White House, Mr Biden ordered the immediate…

The benefits and risks of neural interfaces

This week is dedicated to the brain-computer interface, or BCI. For some time now, sci-fi movies and TV series have presented the idea of a mind-to-computer interface that controls technology, retrieves information and displays it on virtual screens. Meanwhile, in the background, a number of companies have been working on this and the technology is close to realising some of the outcomes only seen in fiction so far. The concept is not a new one. I’ve seen experiments from many years ago where a test subject moved a pointer around…

Iran: Yet another nuclear bungle?

The self-esteem of two-year-olds and nation states is too fragile for them to admit they were wrong, which makes it hard for them to move on from blunders. That’s why the toys don’t get picked up and the broken treaties don’t get fixed, and why there may be a tantrum (in the case of two-year-olds) or a nuclear war (in the case of the United States and Iran). The latter contingency is implausible, but there is a bipartisan effort in the United States to make it more likely. Until a…

Govt relief causes ‘havoc’

The registration for the government’s relief aid for people without smart phones or internet access was a resounding success — if success means turning everyone involved into a loser. Actually, the process was shameful and a complete mockery of the scheme’s auspicious title, Rao Chana or “We Win”. Who wins when the first day of the registration is described as “havoc”? Images showing large crowds waiting outside designated facilities, mainly branches of state-owned Krungthai Bank yesterday — when the registration began — were evidence of the state’s inefficiency. The failure…

Capital needs a new approach to tree surgery

Pictures of numerous chopped down tree trunks scattered near the walls of Wat Po in the Rattanakosin old town area were shared on social media and immediately triggered public outrage. Netizens exclaimed in disbelief. “Not again!” Several rushed to blame the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). Such a presumption was understandable as the agency has gained a bad reputation with its brutal treatment of plants and trees. However, this time round, it was an initiative of the temple abbot who wanted to improve the surrounding area of the premises. He was…

Vaccinations in Morris County Surpass 100,000

MORRIS COUNTY — More than 100,000 vaccinations have been issued in Morris County to date, with nearly 30 percent being provided out of the Morris County Regional COVID-19 Vaccination Center, where a greater supply of vaccine is expected to allow authorities to ramp up efforts to vaccinate 2,000 people per day later this week. “This is certainly a significant milestone, as Morris County keeps on pace with much more populated counties in getting vaccines into the arms of residents. But there are many, many more people we need to reach,…

Thin is in

During the Covid-19 lockdown last year, ceramicist Sukanjana Kanjanabatr calmed herself by making circular clay shapes following the temporary closure of her studio. Thousands of the thin and circular pieces later were developed into 13 porcelain artworks that are on display at the ceramics exhibition, “A Practice Of Slowing Down”, at Offbeat Box. “The clay pieces were developed from my previous artwork that exhibited at the 19th National Ceramics Exhibition in 2018. My artworks at that time were very fragile. They could be broken easily if pressed hard. The delicacy…

Biden extends COVID-19 ban on foreclosures President Joe Biden has extended a ban on some foreclosures until the summer as millions of homeowners continue to struggle during the coronavirus pandemic.

It will also extend for six months the help already granted to homeowners since last year. There was no immediate word on whether Biden will also extend past March 31 the ban on evictions for renters.…

New COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations decline for fifth consecutive week in US

New COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are on the decline in the U.S., but health experts warn about complacency, while stressing that social distancing measures and the use of face masks are still important tools in keeping the progress going. “I don’t think the vaccine is having much of an impact at all on case rates,” former CDC Director Tom Frieden said in an interview Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.” “It’s what we’re doing right: staying apart, wearing masks, not traveling, not mixing with others indoors,” he added. In fact,…

Lawyers for Rayshard Brooks’ family and 2 Atlanta college students want special prosecutor

ATLANTA — With Fulton County’s district attorney and Georgia’s attorney general each insisting that the other should handle two high-profile criminal cases involving current and former police officers, the lawyer for one of the ex-cops on Tuesday filed a motion to dismiss, citing the ongoing jurisdictional turf war. “With no prosecutor to handle the case, it might never be resolved,” wrote Noah Pines, who represents Garrett Rolfe, the fired Atlanta police officer charged with felony murder in the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks last June. Another officer on the scene…
