In Russia there are a few traditions for a Jesus Baptism Day. This day is celebrated in 19th of January and the night before the main tradition is to go bathing in some natural source of water. So at this day usually the local rivers and lakes are full of the people wishing to commit this ritual, not minding the temperature of the air and of the water, which is usually just a half
degree up the freezing point at this time of the year. Also, many people in Russia believe that the water being picked up at Baptism Day has some sort of magic. It can be kept next 365 days without getting any smell or become rotten. So many collect the water at that night and keep it at home, drinking it from time to time during all the year.
Lately, in some Russian bookstores this book is a true bestseller. Mostly people buy it as a gift. And here is why. First of all, it's title is "How to earn a million?", well this kind of titles are always very intriguing, but usually contain kind of not so worthy stuff. But believe me, not in this case.

contents. It says: "1. How to earn a million? page. 1" "2. What to do if you have not succeeded in the beginning? page. 17" "3. What to do if you are not sure in success? page. 51" "4. What to do if you have already earned but then spent all the money? page. 87" But what's in the text? Let's see...
Russia borders Japan at it's far east end, but a few know that those two countries don't have a peace treaty signed for already 60 years since the World War II has ended. The reason for that a group of volcanic islands located North from Japan and called Kuril islands. Those territories were recaptured by Russian army at the end of WW2 and now are under Russian administration, though Japan considers them their own lost territories. There were a lot of offers from Japan in order to return the islands. During the 1990s, when the Soviet government resigned and the new Russian authorities have been forming Japan offered billions
dollars for those territories hoping to get the islands back, but patriotic motive was stronger that the profit one. Those islands could be vital for Japan, which is suffering from over-population. Its lands are tens or even hundreds time more densely populated than the nearby lying Kuril islands, which stay almost untouched by civilization. Well, it's hard to say what would be better - to let people live and destroy nature or to preserve nature at its virgin state but deprive hundreds thousands of people from the land. Below are some photos from those lands in question.
Every spring and summer, when the ground warms up after winter frosts here and there parts of paved road go underground. Moscow authorities can't say what is the reason for those things to happen and usually can just suppose but don't know for sure. But Moscow geologists seem to know the answer. "Moscow city stands on the top of the giant ancient volcano", says scientist, "we call often Moscow - the city on the seven hills (as well Rome and some other cities) but just a few know that those seven hill actually are the ancient volcano structure. It doesn't matter that it is not active
for thousands of years already, still there are so called 'fluid streams' gases from the center of the Earth comes to surface through ancient volcanoes, they cause the tremors of the surface and ruining the roads and buildings in Moscow.". He also admitted that around 15% of Moscow city surface can get under the ground. And there is still a chance that the volcano can wake up. "It's not to clear what causes some old and forgotten volcanoes that were not active for years to wake up suddenly". In this case all the city would be buried.
This presidential elections in USA has been brought to light the story of this man, living now in poverty in a small wooden hut at the suburbs of St. Petersburg. Probably everyone knows about the accident John McCain had during his service in Vietnam, when his plane was shot down by the Vietnamese (as was thought before) missile. It's a well known fact that during that war thousands of Russian officers and military engineers helped the Vietnamese Communist Army to fight against US troops. All the newest weapons were also brought by Russian comrades from the North and Vietnamese were taught how to operate it properly. During one of such "demonstration" the John McCain's plane was shot down to the ground by this man on video. According to his words it was the 13th missile that hit the target finally, twelve missed. He says it was a great luck that a group of Russian soldiers has arrived to the crash site, and ordered Vietnamese not to harm the shot down pilot but just to take him out of the river, because, he explained, usually locals hammered down with their stone hoes any American pilot they managed to find, so actually they saved him life. Such an attitude locals as a revenge for their
burned to ground villages by American napalm. Russian officer was rewarded with the honorable "Red Star" medal and 1000 Russian rubles addition for his retirement pension. Also later he have visited a few times McCain in the Hanoi prison, where they were implementing special Soviet "tortures" for American prisoners: they forced them to study Communistic literature, like "Capital" by Karl Marx and many other thick Soviet ideological books. When he was asked if he would meet McCain what he could ask a man who is now a popular American politician - he said "I wanted to ask him if he finished reading Karl Marks". Also he said, he didn't want McCain to become a forty-forth US president, because as he says "McCain hates Russia way too much, though I can understand him". He also demonstrated some booty he got from Vietnam, among them is the McCain's "paratroopers book" - some special military ID the pilots and parachutists had to have with them while on duty. Just a few days ago it was published that he has passed away. Below you can see one of his last interviews (on Russian):
Lately on the Net started appearing gossips about the new North-American currency "Amero" which would, as people say, come to replace Canadian and American dollars together with Mexican peso and would become one and only currency in North America. Some photos of actual amero bills and coins appeared on different near world-conspiracy blogs and youtube channels Well, in Russia they stepped bit
further and think that the currency would be called not Amero but Lunaro, or Lunar if to be exact, and probably it would replace not only Northern American currencies but all currencies on Earth and even, probably, on Moon. That's what they call the real New World Order. And yes, there are some secret bill samples that leaked and we can publish those, like, rare shots.
