|[2006-09-15] The UK is introducing biometric capture into the visa application|
|The UK is introducing biometric capture into the visa application process to improve the security of the visa operation and to protect better the visa holder's identities. In the longer-term passage through the UK's border control will be easier with biometrically enabled visas.
In order to achieve the full benefits of biometric capture as early as possible, we now need to limit the issue of long-term, ' non-biometric' visit visas.
Therefore, with immediate effect, we will not be issuing any 10- year multiple entry visit visas. Applicants who have previously held 5 or 10 year visas will [...] |

|[2006-09-13] With malice aforeplay: 'Personals' replies outed online|
|At first glance, the posting looked like any number of Internet classified ads explicitly seeking sex. But instead of the 27-year-old woman with long brown hair who was advertised, a male, Seattle-area graphic designer collected the replies and posted them online -- with photos, names and contact information.
Privacy experts say the case treads the line legally but crosses it morally.
"It's a sad commentary overall," said Lauren Weinstein, a veteran computer scientist and privacy advocate. "It's one of those situations where both sides look bad. ... From an ethical standpoint, this isn't bra [...] |

At the age of three he lost his mother and was brought up by his grandmother, Yelizaveta Alekseyevna Arsenyeva, on her estate in Penzenskaya province.

|[2006-09-13] The “intelligentsia”|
Beginning about 1860, Russian culture was dominated by a group known as the “intelligentsia,” a word that English borrowed from Russian but which means something rather different in its original Russian usage. In the word's narrow sense, the “intelligentsia” consisted of people who owed their primary allegiance not to their profession or class but to a group of men and women with whom they shared a common set of beliefs, including a fanatic faith in revolution, atheism, and materialism. They usually adopted a specific set of manners, customs, and sexual behaviour, primarily from their favour [...] |

|[2006-09-13] Russia after the monarchy|
The following is a general overview of the history of Russia during the period of Soviet domination. For full coverage of the history of the Soviet Union, see the article Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
The February Revolution of 1917 was spontaneous, leaderless, and fueled by deep resentment over the economic and social conditions that had prevailed in imperial Russia under Tsar Nicholas. The country, having been sucked into World War I, found the strains of fighting a modern war with a premodern political and economic system intolerable. The tsar was well-meaning but fell short a [...] |

|former daily newspaper, published in Moscow and distributed nationwide, that was the official organ of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1918 to 1991. Founded in 1912 in St. Petersburg as a workers daily, Pravda became an important organ of the Bolshevik movement. Vladimir Lenin exercised broad editorial control over the paper. It was repeatedly suppressed by the tsar's police, reappearing each time with a different name, until it finally emerged in Moscow in 1918 to assume its role as the official party paper. It retained this function until the demise of Communist power in the Sov [...] |

|[2006-09-12] The News On Love At First Sight|
|In the front section of The Washington Post, I read an interesting poll conducted by the Post on the percentage of people that believe in love at first sight- broken down by sex, age and political party, (very important here inside the beltway).
When the people who were polled were asked this question, they responded with 47% yes, 51% no, and only 2% had no opinion. When asked if they had ever fallen in love at first sight the no responses were 18%, 28% said yes- and 51% said they “don’t believe.” I found it interesting that what people say they believe does not necessarily match up with thei [...] |
