Реванш дикости: почему Оруэлл живее всех живых http://bit.ly/2KmqfR2

Comment

"Улицы в праздничном убранстве. Реют, алеют, синеют, белеют флаги и стяги. Плакаты гласят: «Свобода – это рабство!», «Незнание – сила!», «Мир – это война!» Везде Старший брат и его цепкий взгляд. Мир только что отметил 70-летие публикации книги. Мало кто не слышал о ней. А кое-кто и читал. В 1949-м роман Джорджа Оруэлла «1984» смутил мир. Почему он важен сейчас? "

@mentegatto: the idea would be to teach grammar as a tool for storytelling, not by itself.

How dementia robbed me of my love of cooking "Wendy Mitchell wrote a bestselling memoir about having Alzheimer’s. Here she describes how the disease has changed her relationship with food" http://bit.ly/2Ikl2Xp

Comment

"We don’t know what causes dementia for sure and we don’t know what to eat or drink to prevent it. All I know is that every day is a challenge, a game of chess to play with this disease in my head – and one I’m determined to win for as long as I can."

Why Did the CIA Classify the Soviet Army's Recipe for Borscht? http://bit.ly/2I5ERls

Comment

"The problem for people who care about government transparency is that the CIA's efforts to conceal history go far beyond soup."

 ‎· silpol
Comment

«The soup was good, but not good enough to qualify as an American state secret. ... Too often, Brown says, "it becomes a slippery slope" where "'dangerous to national security'" exceptions get applied to materials that might just be embarrassing. Once, he tells me, the CIA tried to use the national security restriction to hide a joke about an attack on Santa Claus.»

Langley, Virginia, 1970s. CIA HQ. Captain John Calmer, a Soviet sector analyst, stays to work at night. It is strictly forbidden, but he earned his trust by his magnificent, nearly prescient reports. He is a Soviet spy, Ivan Smirnov. When everybody leaves the building, he takes the fire escape stairs to the executive floor, quickly picks the lock to the CIA Director’s office, and silently enters. He knows where to look. He opens the Director’s safe with his copy of the key, acquired long ago from one of the cleaners, and takes the yellow-orange folder from it. He enjoys the view of clear black letters: TOP SECRET//HCS-O/UMBRA/NOFORN. He pulls his trusty Minox, takes a deep breath, and opens the folder...

Next morning, the CIA director comes to his office and orders cleaning. He looks at the hole in John’s head, and the walls splashed by something looking like borscht. He takes the folder back from the officer’s dead hand, strikes off the number 14 on the back page, writes “15” over it, and puts the folder back into the safe.

Comment

"This makes no sense until you realize that the point is to cull the herd and cures for cancer and other diseases are simply impeding that process. If you are sick, disabled, mentally ill, poor, unemployed, etc., then you should be about one thing: getting the fuck out of the way. By dying. If you aren’t in the business of dying then you are dragging the country down. Come on, America. Get busy living, or get busy dying. That’s the fucking point."

"Суперджет" получил 30 пробоин при перелёте из Москвы в Ижевск "Самолёт Sukhoi Superjet-100 авиакомпании "Аэрофлот" с 63 пассажирами на борту приземлился в Ижевске с пробоинами на фюзеляже, сообщает телеграм-канал Life Shot." https://life.ru/t/новости/1217898/supierdzhiet_poluchil_30_proboin_pri_pierieliotie_iz_moskvy_v_izhievsk

Comment

На протяжении всего полёта по лайнеру хлестал 14-метровый металлический трос, который забыл открепить техник, но сказал, что отключил его. Как отмечается, одна из бортпроводниц слышала сильный стук ещё на взлёте, но не доложила о нём пилотам. После приземления самолёта специалисты насчитали на фюзеляже порядка 30 пробоин.

The Decline of Historical Thinking "For the past decade, history has been declining more rapidly than any other major, even as more and more students attend college." http://bit.ly/2M7nTqQ

Comment

“Yes, we have a responsibility to train for the world of employment, but are we educating for life, and without historical knowledge you are not ready for life,” Blight told me. As our political discourse is increasingly dominated by sources who care nothing for truth or credibility, we come closer and closer to the situation that Walter Lippmann warned about a century ago, in his seminal “Liberty and the News.” “Men who have lost their grip upon the relevant facts of their environment are the inevitable victims of agitation and propaganda. The quack, the charlatan, the jingo . . . can flourish only where the audience is deprived of independent access to information,” he wrote. A nation whose citizens have no knowledge of history is asking to be led by quacks, charlatans, and jingos.
