Это цитата сообщения moskit_off Оригинальное сообщение



Нацики из "Азова" во главе с Билецким отказались выполнять условия по разводу войск в Золотом и заявляют, что не уйдут из поселка.




Если они там и останутся, то, конечно, никакого развода войск, даже для симуляции выполнения минских соглашений, не произойдет.
Для Зеленского и Ко проблема заключается в том, что если развода не произойдет и давно анонсированная встреча Нормандской четверки не состоится, то вина Украины в этом будет весьма очевидна.
При этом данный взбрык очевидным образом подрывает попытки Зеленского и Коломойского предъявлять претензии на государственную монополию на насилие. Впрочем, учитывая тот факт, что Аваков сохранился в украинской системе власти (а у Авакова есть свои покровители в Вашингтоне, которые в свое время помешали его отставки еще при Порошенко), нет ничего удивительного в том, что крышуемые Аваковым неонацистские банды продолжают проявлять активность в самых разных вопросах.

PS. И еще. Порошенко и Билецкий на укро-ТВ выясняют, кто из них больший укро-патриот.

златослоВИКА: "Шкура" из Золотого:классический пособник нацистских полицаев (Видео)

Классический пособник нацистских полицаев на оккупированной территории.





После Великой Отечественной Войны таких отлавливали, судили и прилюдно вешали. Иногда обходились и без суда. Как-то будет на этот раз...

PS. Пресловутый развод войск у Золотого сегодня не начался. Киев заявил, что после обстрела украинских позиций в районе Золотого, в ближайшую неделю его ожидать не следует. В Петровском развод также не произойдет, во всяком случае в ближайшее время.
Но это формально, прекрасно понятно, что демарш нациков ставит перед Зеленском вилку - продолжать петлять или же попытаться взять под контроль нацистские структуры. На текущий момент выбрать путь петляний.

галина5819: Невероятно, но это акварель

«Выбросьте учебники по акварели и затеряйтесь в настоящем лесу» Джо Фрэнсис Доуден

Английский художник Джо Фрэнсис Доуден (Joe Francis Dowden) рисует гиперреалистичные акварели. И считает, что это под силу каждому, нужно лишь знать секреты техники.

Например: «Будьте проще — эта самая распространенная мантра среди акварелистов не подходит для нашего случая.

Наоборот, старайтесь усложнить работу на столько, насколько это возможно. Уберите подальше учебники по акварели и углубитесь в настоящий лес.»



Эти и другие секреты мастерства художник не скрывает и охотно делится ими на семинарах, мастер-классах, в телепередачах и учебных пособиях по живописи.

 25 самых воздушных картин Джо Фрэнсиса Доудена. А также подробнейшие схемы на русском языке написания некоторых из них.

 

 

«Пишите свет, а не ландшафт. Такой подход может показаться сложным, но я объясню, как это сделать. Когда вы смотрите на ландшафт, против низко стоящего солнца, все вокруг оживает. Даже самый невзрачный вид сверкает и искрится полный жизни и энергии. Но обернитесь и вы увидите мертвый и скучный пейзаж. Ищите в первую очередь свет, а потом — вид.»

галина5819: 3 домашних упражнения для улучшения работы кишечника    

Cache   
Сегодня не у многих, получается, тщательно следить за своим питанием. В этом, наверное, виноват наш сегодняшний темп жизни и та пища, которую нам предлагают в недорогих «кафешках» и фаст-фудах. Хотя, конечно, следить за питанием можно и в таких условиях. Как говорится, «было бы желание». Но, если этого самого желания нет, то проблем с системой пищеварения в целом и с кишечником в частности избежать вряд ли получится. Бывает, мы голодаем длительное время (порой не по своей воли), а иногда сильно объедаемся, и наш кишечник требует помощи. 
Картинки по запросу 3 домашних упражнения для улучшения работы кишечника https://nashsovetik.ru
Упражнения, которые я Вам предлагаю, помогают как раз в последней ситуации.
 
 
3 простых упражнения для нормализации работы кишечника, если он перегружен
 
Один из явных признаков перегруженности кишечника, это появление урчания в животе, как мы привыкли называть такое явление. Кто-то, чтобы замаскировать подобное урчание, носит «маскировочного» котика (как в той рекламе, помните?), мы же пойдём другим путём. Избавимся от урчания, выполняя вот эти упражнения. Выполнять их нужно в комплексе, то есть одно за другим, в любой последовательности.
 
Шаг №1
Ложимся на спину (лучше на твёрдую поверхность, в идеале на пол, а не на мягкий матрас) и втягиваем живот. Сделать это нужно максимально сильно, насколько это у Вас получится. После втягивания, «выталкиваем» живот вверх, то есть, возвращаем его в исходное состояние. Проделать это нужно 10 раз.
 
Шаг №2
Это упражнение выполняем тоже лежа на спине, так что вставать после выполнения первого – Вам не придётся. Здесь нужно будет немного поднять голову, а вместе с ней ещё и грудную клетку. «Немного», это сантиметра на 3 от пола. В таком положении постарайтесь удержаться примерно 3 секунды. Повторяем такие подъёмы 4 раза.
 
Шаг №3
После «лежачих» упражнений, переходим напоследок к «сидячему». Итак, садимся на любой стул, и напрягаем по максимуму мышцы живота. Удерживаем их в таком напряжённом положении (по возможности) 5 секунд. А, потом их расслабляем. Здесь количество повторов тоже совсем небольшое – раза 3-4.
 
Сколько раз в день выполнять такие упражнения?
 
Весь этот простой комплекс по времени умещается максимум в минуту, даже с небольшими перерывами между упражнениями. А, чтобы кишечник пришёл в норму, и работал в нормальном режиме, в день выполнять их следует раза 3-4.
 
И два видео, где Вам покажут несколько универсальных упражнения для улучшения работы кишечника при запорах, метеоризме, изжоге и т.п.
 
Не забываем про консультацию врача.
 
Смотрим первое видео.


И второе.

Salt Lake City: Contributor Tyler Hinton reviews PHANTOM at the Hale Centre Theatre, writing "Maury Yeston's PHANTOM on Hale Centre Theatre's Centre Stage has been cast, designed, and directed to magnificence. Experience a new, more human side to the story you know so well through this magnificent, emotional production of a beautifully crafted musical."


Connecticut: Contributor Joseph Harrison reviews QUIXOTE NUEVO at Hartford Stage, writing "There are some stories that have a timeless quality, speaking to the aches and the joys of modern life regardless of the era in which they are told. Such is the classic tale of Don Quixote, a story that, when Miguel de Cervantes published it in 1605, took on a certain meaning and century after century has been seen through an evolving lens, from comic novel to tragic statement against nobility. But in Octavio Solis' new play QUIXOTE NUEVO, which opens Hartford Stage's 2019/2020 season, the infamous Spanish Knight of La Mancha has become the Latino Knight of La Plancha (Texas) battling border surveillance drones instead of windmills and fighting for the undocumented versus the poor citizens of war-ravaged Spain."


Buffalo: Contributor Michael Rabice reviews MEAN GIRLS at Shea's Buffalo Theatre, writing "The brilliant comedian Tina Fey has brought her clique of nasty teenage girls to town to open the First National Tour of her Broadway hit musical, MEAN GIRLS. After the success of the film version, Fey and her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, have added music to the story of teenage angst and meanness. The genre has been well populated over the years, with growing up and adolescent relationships proving to be great fodder for shows like GREASE, BYE, BYE, BIRDIE, HAIRSPRAY, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL and most recently, THE PROM."


Boston: Contributor Nancy Grossman reviews Alice Ripley in SUNSET BOULEVARD at North Shore, writing "In the annals of musical theater, Norma Desmond is one of those larger than life characters, like Mame Dennis, Dolly Levi, and Eva Peron, who cries out for an actor with a specific and rare combination of skills to play the role. Tony Award-winner Alice Ripley ascends to playing the faded silent-screen star in the North Shore Music Theatre production of SUNSET BOULEVARD, after originating the role of Betty Schaefer in the 1994 original Broadway cast which starred Glenn Close. In so doing, Ripley joins the pantheon of singular talents who have put their personal stamp on the musical iteration of Norma, stepping out of the shadow of the indelible mark Gloria Swanson made on celluloid in Billy Wilder's 1950 film."

CHRIS MASSOGLIA   

Cache   
Christopher Paul "Chris" Massoglia[1] (born March 29, 1992) is an American television and motion picture actor.
Chris Massoglia was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Christopher and Karen Massoglia.[2] His father is a chiropractor and his mother a homemaker.[2] His parents are devout Christians and Republicans, and Massoglia grew up a fan of Christian pop music (as well as unable to listen to rap music).[2] Gifted with an above-average intelligence, Massoglia was homeschooled by his mother.[2] While his peers were taking third grade-level subjects, Massoglia was taking eighth grade-level courses.[2] By the age of 13, he had enrolled in an online university where his coursework included developmental psychology, Biblical studies, algebra, and American history.[2] He also had studied jujitsu, played piano, trained as a hip-hop dancer, knew American sign language, and rode horses.[2] He was also a stand-out Little League Baseball player.[2] The Massoglia family has, as of 2009, refused to move to Hollywood, preferring to maintain a home in Minneapolis despite the extensive travel for Chris that this requires.[3]

He began attending acting workshops at a dancing academy in his home town of Minneapolis while in middle school, and auditioning for television commercials by creating home-made audition tapes.[3] His first jobs included commercials for Target, Marshall Field's, PepsiCo, and Best Buy.[2]
He began acting in 2003 under the name "Chris Kelly" (sometimes appearing as "Chris J. Kelly") in an episode of the television program Law & Order: Criminal Intent.[3] The same year, he was considered for the part of 10-year-old Sean in the Nicole Kidman film Birth, but the family refused to allow him to appear naked on screen with a nude, grown woman.[2] He auditioned for Spider-Man 2 (getting far enough in the casting process to spend an afternoon with Tobey Maguire) and Bad News Bears (he returned six times for call-backs but was not cast).[2] He spent the summer of 2004 away from auditions to play Little League Baseball; his team (the Robbinsdale All-Stars) won the Minnesota state title that year but did not go to the Little League World Series after losing in the Indianapolis regionals.[2] He appeared in two episodes of Medical Investigation in 2004,[4] and four episodes of the TNT cable television police drama Wanted in 2005.[3][4] He began using his family name of Massoglia in 2008.[3]
He made his feature film acting debut in 2007 in the motion picture A Plumm Summer,[5] but his most prominent role as of 2009 was as "Darren Shan" in the 2009 film Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant.[6] Originally scheduled to debut in theaters in 2010, the film was moved to October 2009 to "capitalize on the Halloween season",[7] and opened a month prior to another highly-anticipated vampire picture, New Moon.[8]
His follow-up project was the 3-D horror film The Hole, directed by Joe Dante,[9][10][11] He also went on to playing an older Sam, Zac Efron's brother in Charlie St. Cloud, but his role was cut from the film.[11][12]

‘Joker’ laughs its way to October box office record   

Cache   

LOS ANGELES – The filmmakers and studio behind “Joker” have reason to put on a happy face. Despite concerns over its violent themes and ramped up theater security, audiences flocked to the multiplex to check out the R-rated film this weekend resulting in a record October opening.

Warner Bros. said Sunday that “Joker” grossed an estimated $93.5 million in ticket sales from 4,374 screens in North America. The previous October record-holder was the Spider-Man spinoff “Venom” which opened to $80 million last year. Internationally, “Joker” earned $140.5 million from 73 markets, resulting in a stunning $234 million global debut.

“This was a much larger result at the box office than we had ever anticipated globally,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution. “Putting records aside, we’re just thrilled that audiences are embracing the movie as strong as they are.”

Since debuting at the Venice Film Festival where it won the prestigious Golden Lion last month, “Joker” has been both praised and criticized for its dark spin on the classic Batman villain played by Joaquin Phoenix. The film from director and co-writer Todd Phillips was always seen as a bit of a gamble with one of the studios’ most valuable pieces of intellectual property, hence its modest-for-a-comic-book-film $55 million budget.

But in the weeks leading up to its release, hype and uneasiness intensified beyond how audiences would react to placing this character in a realistic and unambiguously adult setting with “Taxi Driver” undertones. Responding to anxiety that the film might have the potential to inspire violence, multiple theater chains banned costumes or reaffirmed earlier policies regarding masks and authorities in numerous cities said they were stepping police patrols around theaters. Some relatives of the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting even asked Warner Bros . to commit to gun control causes – the studio said it always has.

While some worried this would impact the box office, it did not ultimately detract audiences from turning out opening weekend; the box office surpassed industry expectations and may rise even higher when weekend actuals are reported Monday. Although the film got a B+ CinemaScore from opening night audiences, the studio is optimistic about its long-term playability.

“Sixty-six percent of the audience was under the age of 35,” Goldstein said. “That tells you that the audience will expand out with that younger group as time goes on.” The younger audience also gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst for box office tracker Comscore, said that the convergence of critical acclaim and controversy actually helped the film become bigger than expected at the box office.

“It’s the ultimate water-cooler movie right now,” Dergarabedian said.

He added that it was important that “Joker” was always marketed as a “very dark, R-rated film.”

“It always had an element of mystery and danger surrounding it,” Dergarabedian said. “If it were a G-rated film, controversy like this would not be a good thing.”

In the landscape of R-rated comic book films, “Joker” is nestled between “Deadpool” and its sequel, both of which opened over $125 million, and “Logan,” which launched with $88.4 million.

“Joker” was the only new wide release this weekend, which is down from last year when both “Venom” and “A Star is Born” opened. Holdovers populated the top 10: The more family friendly “Abominable” landed in second place with $12 million in its second weekend and “Downton Abbey” took third in its third weekend with $8 million.

With awards buzz behind it, the Judy Garland biopic “Judy,” starring Renee Zellweger, added nearly 1,000 screens this weekend and placed seventh with $4.5 million from 1,458 locations.

And in limited release, Pedro Almodovar’s critically acclaimed “Pain and Glory” launched on four screens to a solid $160,087. Less fortunate was the Natalie Portman-led astronaut drama “Lucy in the Sky” which earned only $55,000 from 37 theaters resulting in a dismal $1,500 per screen average.

Cache   
Осень наступила. Погода каждый день преподносит нам сюрпризы, которые мы не ждём. Так как, не можем отвыкнуть от мысли, что недавно ещё было лето. Но, эти воспоминания нас не «греют», да и мы сами, порой, всё никак не можем переключиться на осенний лад. Отсюда и простудные заболевания, спутником которых является кашель.
Народных рецептов связанных с борьбой с этой напастью множество. Наверное, у каждого из Вас есть свой собственный, которым пользуетесь Вы уже не один год.

Чем лечить кашель у взрослого быстро и эффективно?
 
5 универсальных рецептов
 
Эти рецепты подойдут только взрослым. Почему? Да, потому что все они на коньяке, пиве или вине. Детям эти средства лучше не давать. А, вот взрослых они быстро избавят от кашля.
 
Вариант №1
Итак, начинаем с конька: его нам понадобится – 50 грамм тёплое кипячёное молоко – стакан сливочное масло (мягкое) —  столовая ложка мёд – тоже столовая ложка
 
Этот рецепт раньше практиковал доктор Фисенко. Вполне заслуженный и известный человек в «старой» Москве. Такое средство помогает даже при самом запущенном и «приставучем» кашле.
 
Все эти ингредиенты просто смешиваются, и после этого, выпиваются маленькими глотками. Сразу же ложиться спать после приёма этого коктейля не стоит. Нужно будет посидеть минут 20-25, укрывшись пледом.
 
Чтобы кашель прошёл безвозвратно, лечиться таким коктейлем нужно 10 дней. На самом деле, от кашля Вы избавитесь уже на 3-й день. Но, всё равно полноценно пролечиться нужно 10 дней.
 
Вариант №2
Очень неплохо помогает и этот рецепт с коньяком. Столовую ложку коньяка здесь смешать нужно будет с протёртой с сахаром малиной, с ложкой столовой мёда и с соком половинки лимона. Заливаем всё это кипятком и принимаем в горячем (только в меру горячем!) виде. После этого, сразу же нужно будет лечь спасть. То есть, лечиться таким коктейлем нужно с вечера.

Вариант №3
Подогреваем 100 миллилитров качественного красного вина, в него добавляем чёрный молотый перец (примерно 4-ю часть ложки) и ложку чайную мёда. Пить это лекарство нужно перед сном и только в тёплом виде. Кашлять ночью Вы точно не будете после его приёма и простуда от Вас «отстанет».
 
 
Вариант №4
Быстро можно избавиться от кашля, если растереться вот этой мазью. Стакан подсолнечного масла смешиваем с красным молотым перцем (2-мя столовыми ложками). И греем такое перечное масло на водяной бане минут 15. Наносить эту мазь на тело следует перед сном.
 
Вариант №5
Этот рецепт излечит Вас от кашля (даже от сильного) при бронхите.
 
Смешивать здесь ничего не нужно. Просто берём пиво, нагреваем его (так, чтобы жгло!) и выпиваем. После этого, идём сразу же спать. От горячего пива Вы пропотеете.
 
А, утром у Вас не будет ни кашля, ни хрипов ни температуры (если она была).
