[2006-10-05] Online dating in the dark

[2006-10-05] Event helps get singles together
So you’re 50. Around 50. Fiftyish, let’s put it. You’re divorced, or widowed. Or you’ve never been married but have chosen to remain single. You might have kids, or grandchildren even. Maybe you see them often, and that’s a wonderful way to spend your free time. You have good friends, although many of them are married and lately you’re feeling a bit like the odd one out. In other words, you’re happy with your life. But it’s not quite the same as having a significant other. A partner. Or even a good friend. And here’s the trick. You want to meet people, but not just anybody. You’re a succes [...]
[2006-10-05] Young women rate dinner better than sex
YOUNG women prefer going out for a romantic dinner or getting a massage to having sex, a new report has revealed. The Turbo Twenties study, which surveyed 570 Australian women in their 20s, also found financial security and travelling the world were their most important priorities -- more important than having children. About 30 per cent of participants said they preferred a romantic dinner to bedroom action, while a further 22.5 per cent rated a massage as better than sex. Only 16.6 per cent said they would rather have sex. Study author Tania Farrelly said she was surprised at the numb [...]
[2006-10-05] Are Single Mothers the ‘New American Family?’
Call it the backlash against the backlash. Over the past decade, Americans have increasingly understood that the divorce revolution, fatherlessness and single parent households are harming our children. Now those who view the traditional family as disadvantageous to women are firing back, defending women who choose single motherhood and depicting fathers as superfluous. Last fall Stanford University Gender Scholar Peggy Drexler penned the highly-publicized book Raising Boys Without Men: How Maverick Moms Are Creating the Next Generation of Exceptional Men. This month Oxford Press released Wel [...]

[2006-10-05] 13 years since the Moscow street war
There was a communist rally in Moscow today, to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the clashes in Moscow between violent communist/nationalist protesters and pro-Yeltsin police and army units. The clashes ended in the storming of the Supreme Council the next day, the event commonly summarised as “Yeltsin shelled the parliament”. The parliament, one must keep reminding oneself, that had, several days before, issued a decree that disobeying this parliament’s orders (orders?) was punishable by death, and presided by a smug Ruslan Khasbulatov who had, on the day before, called on the pro-parlia [...]

[2006-10-05] Tochka? Tochka.
The most frequent search keyword that lands people on this site is “tochka”. So, well, I guess I should supply what is demanded and give a definition. “Tochka”, òî÷êà, means a point or dot. It is related to one of the Russian words with a rare combination of initial consonants, the verb tknut’, to prick or prod. I’ve heard “tochka” used in English as a term for cable radio, something that became common in Russia during Soviet times; this meaning derives from radiotochka, the name of the wall socket where you plugged the receiver in. “Tochka Net” means, quite simply, “dot net”; there’s no p [...]
[2006-10-05] Tver: An unexceptional city
Yes, it serves me right for picking a Russian city (Tver) at random to explore.However some interesting tidbits here and there:As good a site as you will find for Tver (located between Moscow and St.Petersburg - though closer to the former). The site reveals that... The image of modern Tver with its present, clear, and rational layout is aunique example of 18th century architecture and city planning. Commissioned byCatherine the Great, the renowned Italian architect Rostrelli incorporated manyof his ideas for the construction of St. Petersburg to rebuild Tver after adisastrous fire in 1763 th [...]
[2006-10-05] Kazan: Capital of Tatarstan, Russia
Kazan, a million plus city in western Tatarstan, a region that is perhaps 2/3rds MuslimAs in much of Russia, Kazan's architecture tells history quite wellA Washington Post article on relations between Tatars and Russians in Kazan: We spent part of the day walking around Kazan -- which means "cauldron" inTatar -- asking people on the street what they thought. One thing we heardrepeatedly was that "mixed marriages" abound here, apparently more so than inother ethnic enclaves. About half of the Tatars we stopped reported beingmarried to Russians, and vice versa. "How can you hate Tatars when you [...]
[2006-10-05] Yaroslavl: I was there
Yaraslavl- named after Yaroslavl the Wise (11th century Rus ruler), pop. 650,000, 150 miles northeast of Moscow. Second largest city in Russia during the 17th century.Yes, I was there in 2004 and enjoyed my visit, esp the Baltic Restaurant, walking the Volga embankment, strolling the downtown city park, viewing pastel-colored buildings on the side streets, and so on. While driving through the city, I saw a Chevy Impala which, upon closer inspection, had a NYPD logo on the sidedoor. Strange...As usual, Kommersant provides a pretty good rundown of the city and its prospects, including this descr [...]
[2006-10-05] Ivanovo: City of Brides
Why City of Brides? Because the city (pop 455,000) has long been Russia's textile capital, an industry predominantly female.Unfortunately, the city's heavy reliance on its textile industry has led it toward somewhat of a decline (reminds me of my hometown Detroit): After 1990, however, the industry's monostructure became its downfall. Like manyother manufacturing plants, Ivanovo's large, fully-automated "8th March TextileFactory" was closed down; its buildings were converted into a shopping mall.These days, unemployment, partly overt and partly concealed, is high. The numberof its inhabitants [...]
[2006-10-05] Samara: Home to Stalin's Bunker
Samara, known as Kuybyshev during Soviet times, is a 1+ million cityon the Volga about 600 miles southeast of Russia. And yes, Stalin's bunker was situated in Samara- indeed, the city was the country's secondary capital from 1941-43. Because the city was involved in aerospace manufacturing (including space flight), it was a 'closed city' during the cold war. (more on the bunker).The twin city of St. Louis seems fitting. The site reveals, Russia's get-ahead Volga region of Samara is seeking to secure itself aglittering future as a center for Western capital, by setting up its own goldreserves [...]
[2006-10-05] Ryazan: Home to Russia's Stonehenge
Ryazan, a half-million city about 196km southeast of Moscow, is mostly known for its military bases (perhaps 3-4% of the population is employed by the military). Perhaps not so ironic given that Ryazan was the first Russian city to meet the Mongols of Batu Khan (1237)- and was wiped out. Kommersant, as usual, provides good background on the city/region.Given its military bases, its perhaps not surprising that a paratrooper general from the nationalist Rodina (motherland) party just won a gubernatorial election in the province (though the communist party is still strong in Ryazan (pic)). Or tha [...]
[2006-10-05] Ryazan photos
Welcome to Ryazan Ryazan also spelled RIAZAN, OR R'AZAN', city and administrative centre of Ryazan oblast (province), western Russia. It lies along the Oka River on the site of the ancient town of Pereyaslavl-Ryazansky, about 120 miles (193 km) southeast of Moscow. The original Ryazan, first recorded in 1095, lay downstream at the Pronya confluence. The seat of the early principality of Ryazan, it was destroyed in 1237 by the Mongols; only the ruins of its ramparts remain. Pereyaslavl-Ryazansky, thought to have been founded in 1095, was unimportant until the 13th century when the Ryazan bi [...]
[2006-10-05] Why Are All Russian Women So Skinny?
Skinny Russian Women are indeed a source of wonderment.Skinniness is the prime reason why American men, who obsess about weight issues - except their own - flock to Russia to find a Russian wife.

Russian Women Do Not Cook Or Eat In Any Meaningful Way Logically, girls who don't cook - are unlikely to eat in any meaningful way. But with Russian Women, this is more the result of vanity.
