An insider tells British newspaper The Sun, "Madonna is well aware of the kidnap
threats but she is brave and even a little nonchalant when it comes to her own safety. "Guy is seriously concerned and has made it clear that security has to be tightened, just to be on the safe side. "Madonna doesn't anticipate any problems herself but Guy isn't convinced. Her tour director, CHRIS (LAMB), has been on edge after being informed about the security to increase the protection around her."

To whom thefts from the Hermitage are favourable?

221 unique products of jeweller art were gone from Russian department of the Hermitage. Today two persons are accused of theft. The husband and the son of plundered collection`s owner Larissa Zavadskaja, suddenly deceased. Both of them are detained and are under examination. Nikolay Zavadsky-junior worked in a museum for some years and, under the version of consequence, during his work thefts of silver jeweller masterpieces were made. That is remarkable, losses have stopped after his dismissal. It would seem, all is clear. But could one family without assistants and intermediaries make this scale swindle? There is an opinion, that it was the order of an antiquarian mafia. Many experts refer in opinion, that at all their external sensational nature, thefts in one of the main museums of Russia are frivolous. Estimate: the volume of thefts for 5 years has not exceeded 130 million
roubles. At the same time in Petersburg was gone a picture by Mark Shagal, at once estimated on one of the western auctions in half a million dollars! From a hall of impressionists of the same Hermitage thieves have born a picture by Jean-Leon Zheroma «Pool in the Harem» in insurance cost in one million dollars. It means, that a sensation around of present theft from the Hermitage is artificial. To whom is it favourable? Here are some of versions. The purpose - is to clean the person, who is stirring to their profitable "business". To put in Piotrovsky's armchair the person which will sharply raise financial turns of "business". Or the foes-careerists of mister Piotrovsky wish to clean the head of one of the basic museums of the country. And to borrow its throne (by the way - the highest in the museum world).

As Maugli became the Kazakh

Before the beginning of a picture "Nomad" the credit announces that its inspirer was the first president of Kazakhstan Noursultan Nazarbaev. It is possibly caused by aspiration to declare the national identity and to designate on a card of the modern cultural world the state which is considered in the old manner as a makeweight to Russian empire in the West. Meantime Kazakhs have their own history, tradition and heroes. For example, the main character of a film-epopee, Mansur, conducts a family tree from Chingishan, that is a subject of national pride for the «new Kazakhs». It goes without saying, they have a full right on this. However, the curious paradox is that they have decided to declare the world their originality using a language of the Hollywood stamps. By the way, the picture was bought for hire by Harvi Weinstein, the producer of all Tarantino`s films. It`s probably indifferent to the foreign spectators that epic Kazakhs in "Nomad" are represented by slightly tinted Chineses
and Mexicans. In general "Nomad" is a film not for those who can distinguish the representatives of these unlike against each other nations. To not complicate the spectators who are not understanding history of Turkestan, all necessary data are stated by "nomad" Oraz for the staff. This role is played by actor Dzhejson Scott (hawaiian-chinese origin) which more of others is similar to the present Kazakh. Once Dzhejson Scott has played Maugli in «Jungle Book». The first Kazakh film-epos with the budget in 40 million dollars (under informal data) was created for all the world and by efforts of all cinema world. The script was written by Azerbaijanian Rustam Ibragimbekov. To one of producers became well-known czech Milosh Forman. Hes compatriot Ivan Passer, the director, has been replaced then by other hired "soldier", Sergey Bodrov. The customers wished to get the good of an export level, and this purpose was reached.

Zemfira is not fated to become the philosopher.

The most well-known student of philosophical faculty of the Moscow State University is threatened with deduction. Apparently, the singer has decided to study sciences of Aristotel and Gegel in absentia. As "Komsomolskaya Pravda" writes, for all semester she has never appeared at lectures. Moreover - winter session is ignored by Zemfira too. She didn`t come on the examination which was passed on 27th of December, after what a serious conversation with a dean of faculty Vladimir
Vasilevich Mironov existed! He explained to the future philosopher, that the question costed sharply enough: or she undertakes study, or will be deducted. However on the 11th January examination on logic has passed too without Zemfira`s participation, and she has not found time to warn a dean's office about the absence. If student Ramazanova will ignore also the third examination, deduction is inevitable - by the rules of the Moscow State University.
