Glass dome, QR codes, what is this all about? A whole QR code house was built in one of Moscow parks. Almost all of its internal surfaces are covered with QR codes. From time to time they flash and light up in a random order to attract the attention of the
visitors. Visitors are being handled a handheld device to scan them with. Then they get some sort of information and other things through the scanned code. I don't find the idea to be particularly useful, however it looks pretty cool to me.
A photographer, Marina, takes a ride on a Russian military helicopter Mi-8 from Kubinka, 60 kilometers from Moscow, and flew around. What was she able to see? Other military helicopters taking off and landing, rusty abandoned helicopters standing in the field,
huts and houses, sawmills and hundred year old wooden structures, also the Victory Day infantry parade preparation and some more. All from above, all shot from the Mi-8 helicopter. Want to see it all? Then don't hesitate and proceed inside.
As spring goes on, the Russian aviation museum in Monino decided to open its doors for volunteers. The museum hosts more than 580 items: planes, helicopters etc stationed on 98 acres of land. This size of territory attracts many of "black" visitors - groups of people
penetrating the place from outside to make bootleg photos and sometimes get a piece of the memorabilia from the planes. Partly due to this some of the planes are in need of restoration and renovation. And here where the volunteering effort comes into play.
During the Stalin's period gold mining prospered in different corners of the USSR. The lack of this metal determined the gold finders to cherish. The Soviet state wasn't considering the costs of such gold
because again, of the great lack of this material. After Iosiv Stalin's death such large-scale mining operations were stopped. Now, in Georgia some citizens are refreshing their grandfathers methods.
