Russian Mafia Promises to Kidnap Madonna Kids if She Doesn’t Cancel Her Tour in Russia

MADONNA is reportedly being targeted by Russian gangsters who are threatening to kidnap her and her kids in a bid to stop her controversial Confessions tour from reaching Moscow next month (SEP06). The pop queen's husband GUY RITCHIE has called for a step-up in security around his wife and children ROCCO and LOURDES - but the RAY OF LIGHT star remains relaxed. 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."

Cameroon authorities earn millions on a similarity of “.cm” and “.com” TLDs

Internet authorities of Cameroon have found that they are getting millions web requests daily as a result of people typing mistakes. People who type in a domain name sometimes miss a letter "o" and are geting ".cm" at the end of the domain instead of ".com". When you would multiply this to billions of .com requests daily you would understand how many requests land in Cameroon.  So what
do you think they have done? They made one template for all non-existent ".cm" domains and now all such requests end at a "search engine" alike webpage. All the clicks on this page are redirected to a search results of a "Pay-Per-Click" search engine Overture. You can try yourself if you want. Just type in any famous domain name but make it ".cm" not ".com".

Does “Vista” mean “Cock” in Lithuanian?

After the new name for the next generation Windows was announced, people in Russian internet blogs started numerous discussion topics. The reason for those topics was a newsline submitted by an unknown author that “The word Vista means Hen or Cock” in Lithuanian language. At that time there
was no common opinion achieved regarding the matter. Just because Lithuania was the part of USSR, and it's only now a separate state, many people there know Russian and even use Russian as their native language. So there were a lot of such rumors comming directly from them.

Half of animal and plants forms may disappear, causing migration of uncivilized nations to USA and Europe

Russian scientists have built a computer model which helped them to predict the possible cataclysms in nearest future. The results they got were far from optimistic. For example according to the model Russian winters are going to be very severe, and more than that numerous earthquakes could occur, also such events as aircraft crashes seem very possible.
The cause for all those negative predictions is a temperature growth on the Earth. Those conclusions have a firm scientific base underneath: scientists built a lot of computer models for the last few years, trying to understand what influence on atmosphere causes “greenhouse gases” and “greenhouse effect” in general.

67 How did the Richest Russians become Rich

How did the Richest Russians become Rich

Here I am going to tell you a story of one country. I guess you’ve heard some facts on its past but I am practically sure you don’t know some exact details. So the country in question is USSR, the country which doesn’t exist now, since 1991. The topic of the article is connected with richness, but it’s impossible to understand the roots of the problem if not to make a little digression and to learn some facts about USSR. The main thing I want to point your attention at was a fact that in USSR there was no right for private property for individuals. This might seem unbelievable but it’s true. Nobody was allowed to own things greater than his toothbrush or tv-set. Just stop for a second and try to imagine if all the things that you are got used to would
become impossible for you to own. You can’t own your house or apartment (apartments in USSR were just registered for a person’s name but belonged to the state). You don’t own your property so you can’t sell it and buy new, you can’t just sell it and get money for it! In USSR nobody could buy a property for himself, property was assigned to a person or to a family by a decision of a local branch of Communist party. And more than that you are not allowed to start a business and to own the things connected with business – you can’t have a shop, a warehouse, a service company, actually only state could own any companies. Tell me, but please honestly, can you imagine yourself living in such a place?

boat of abramovich, russian richest man
16 R. Abramovich, the most wealthiest man of Russia, what cars boats and planes does he have?

R. Abramovich, the most wealthiest man of Russia, what cars boats and planes does he have?

The most famous Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich lives mainly in London, UK (Englishmen call him Red Rom) . He owns UK soccer team Chelsea and tries to enter UK high society with all his best. He spent more than $100M for buying new players to Chelsea team. There had been rumors among London high society that if Abramovich’s Chelsea would win European Cap the Queen of England would make Roman a knight, so he would be Sir Roman Abramovich. Last time Chelsea failed to do this, despite the huge sums Mr. Roman spends on it, hopefully they would succeed next time and he won’t be sorry about all the investments he made. Meanwhile let’s see what means of transportation uses Roman Abramovich and his successors in term of financial wealth in Russian hierarchy. Abramovich has a lot of garages across the world, in Russia in London
in USA and in Europe. He has plenty of different cars. The variety of them is also great. There can be found Porche Carrera GT, Aston Martin DB, very special and unique Bentley  Brookland which weights 6250 lbs. But his famous car for business visits is Mercedes S600 Pullman. He takes it everywhere he goes it’s been transported with a cargo plane following him worldwide (as well as presidents of Russia or USA do). Of course this car is heavily armoured. There is one interesting fact:  Roman never travels in one car with his wife, by his words if the car would be hit by some evil missile or bomb or just would get in accident he doesn’t want his 5 kids would loose both parents at once. Wise guy isn’t he? By the way he is only 40 years old. Just a young boy.
