[2006-11-02] Russian attitudes toward immigrants
Today, most Russians are beginning to think in a way that has almost nothing to do with reality. They tend to view the world as full of confrontation, hostility, rivalry and potential conflicts. This ideology of conflict is a major characteristic of the Russian political culture. In their statements and policies, the majority of contemporary Russian politicians mention certain external and internal forces that they view as threats to the country and as obstacles to its progress. These forces, however, have no names and no addresses. Though oblique references to the US can sometimes be discer [...]

[2006-11-02] Tired of dating creeps? Brush up on your hygiene and try Sophisticated Singles
The need for middle-aged-and-over hotties to hook up and find companions was huge, thought Angel AlFord, who founded Sophisticated Singles, a group where successful and affluent adults meet and development connections. Even romance. "The more successful people are, sometimes, the harder it is to meet someone," said Angel, who's making it her mission to change part of the face of Western North Carolina's dating scene. "We started in March 2005 and get together twice a month and hold a theme party once a month," Angel said. She personally has sifted through hundreds of men and women who fill o [...]
[2006-11-02] Failing online, lovers tap matchmakers
Online daters, disappointed by potential partners lying about their age, weight or marital status, are turning to professional matchmakers to find love. Rather than risk taking pot luck online, chief executives, entertainers and politicians are among those paying thousands of dollars to matchmakers to discreetly “headhunt” and vet the perfect partner. “In the old days you had your extended family, or in some societies an actual matchmaker, trying to find someone for you,” said dating expert Mary Balfour. “Nowadays people have a personal matchmaker in the same way they would have a personal [...]

[2006-11-01] Moscow mayor bans racist Russian march as Nazi show
Moscow's powerful Mayor Yuri Luzhkov said on Tuesday he had banned a march in the Russian capital planned by far-right groups on November 4 to prevent another show by neo-Nazi groups and racists. National Unity Day, which last year officially replaced the traditional November 7 anniversary of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, marks the 1612 defeat of invading Polish troops by poorly clad and barely armed Russian irregulars. But the holiday, meant to demonstrate the unity of Russia's multiethnic nation, last year degenerated into a show of ultra-nationalist groups who marched through Moscow and [...]

The woman he believed was his betrothed is under arrest, along with a man suspected of helping to kill him. "He would talk to me about ideal relationships and pure love," said [...]
[2006-11-01] Mother is the bride in scam. Need for speed sees immigrants marrying relatives to get them into Canada
Some immigrants are marrying their sister -- or even their mother -- to get them into Canada, Sun Media has learned. Awatif Lakhdar, a Montreal lawyer specializing in immigration, says he is aware of two cases in which bogus couples managed to thwart the law before appearing in his office. "The first had married his sister, the second, his mother. They had managed to slip through the cracks in the system, but eventually they found themselves before the courts," he said. It is much quicker to get a spouse into Canada than a sibling or parent. In addition to presenting forged documents to [...]
[2006-11-01] 'Falling in love' may be more realistic than most people think
You feel eight inches taller, five years younger and 80 college credit hours dumber, but you don't care. You couldn't care if you tried. Despite the bitter protests to eliminate Valentine's Day, the desperate attempts to justify eating ice cream out of the carton and the numerous cooties shoots you received as a child, you are currently mesmerized. It can't be love. No way. You are too young. It is too fast. Where are the shooting stars and the chirping birds and the prancing ponies? All I see is an overflowing trash can, a spilled beverage and a winding line for the bathroom. Ew, is that [...]

Dear CFL, I have arranged a trip to you city at the end of October and I wonder what would be the best currency to bring with me. Would Euro's or American Dollars be the best?
