“I went up behind and touched my bra.” Details of the story about a Perm teacher who was given 9 years for harassing a student

– It is difficult to build forecasts, but I believe in the best. I feel sorry for mom, she is very worried, it has been going on for more than a year, – said “KP» 49-year-old math teacher Valery Syropyatov and, with a sigh, he entered the courtroom.

On Monday in the Ordzhonikidze court Perm the teacher was sentenced under the article “Violent acts of a sexual nature”. The sentence is 9 years and 6 months in a maximum security colony.

“The girl begged the three”

This ugly story happened in March last year in a Perm school. According to the teacher, she looked like this:

– In the seventh grade, where the girl studied, I taught mathematics for the first year. In the first quarter, she deceived me, I believed and put the “troika”. But there must be an educational moment. I told her that now she will hand over all the work in the sequence in which they are studied. And until we get to the control for the third quarter, the final mark at her will not be!

On that day, March 27, several students came to the mathematician to take the “tails”.

“Everyone sat at their desks and did the work, and once again she decided to slip away,” the teacher continues. – I began to ask myself, said that her stomach ached, her head … I insisted: “Decide the control, get your” threefold “and you can step on all four sides. If it’s inconvenient for you to study in the classroom – the children are noisy – let’s go to another office. ” We left, she stood at the table and again began to whine. I sit at the table and tell her: “Go, decide!” The man does not leave, I waved. I am sitting, she is standing – where will i get? Here in the belt on the side with the back of the hand and hit. It turned out cotton. I admitted this, and was removed by the director from teaching in this class. I apologized and believed that the incident had been exhausted.

Soon, the information got into law enforcement. First, criminal proceedings were instituted for Art. Art. 135 of the Criminal Code RF “Depraved actions”, and after six months the investigations were re-qualified as more serious, Art. 132 “Violent acts of a sexual nature.”

At each meeting, teachers supported

To the court – at each hearing in the Valery case Syropyatova – a support group gathered: former graduates, colleagues, parents of students … 17 of them acted as witnesses from the defense. They all said that they could not believe the guilt of their beloved teacher. He does not smoke, does sports, organizes excursions around the Perm Territory and cities for children Of Russiaorganizes competitions in rogain, tourist trips, alloys, fees …

Despite all the kind words spoken to the defendant, the state prosecution requested 13 years of imprisonment for him.

Valery Syropyatov on the day the sentence was announced, we met near the courthouse. He was light, without things. As the teacher himself explained, he believed that the court would figure it out and justify it.

“I’ve already checked in, now I’ll take a little walk, breathe in fresh air, mentally tune in and go,” he explained before entering the courtroom.

Despite the fact that the process was closed, the journalists and the support group were allowed to announce the verdict.

It was impossible to understand what the teacher experienced at that moment when the judge said “nine and a half years in a maximum security colony”, the teacher’s face was hidden under a mask. And the former graduates and colleagues who were present at the announcement somehow immediately went down. Someone could not hold back tears.

– Do you understand the verdict and the procedure for appealing against it?

“Yes, your honor,” the convict answered calmly.

At that moment, three escorts entered the courtroom. Knowing the rules of staying in places of deprivation of liberty — the teacher spent three days in a pre-trial detention center while the investigation was under way — the teacher began to unfasten his belt in order to remove it, took money from his pockets, a cell phone and gave it to a relative. The guards locked handcuffs on his hands, and asked all those present to leave the courtroom.

I closed and he pushed my hands away

– The criminal case was considered in closed court, so we can’t explain the details, you heard the verdict, the evidence that the prosecution presented to the court was enough to plead guilty to a particularly serious crime against the sexual integrity of a minor, therefore the sentence so big – said assistant to the prosecutor of the Ordzhonikidze district of Perm, Dmitry Shishkin. – And that slap, and the version that the defendant himself told everyone about, including in the media, is a way of protection.

As it became known to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” from a source familiar with the materials of the criminal case, one of the evidence presented in court was the correspondence of the seventh grader with his girlfriend in social networks. Late in the evening on the day of math retaking, the schoolgirl wrote to her close friend that she was at school, and the teacher took her to a separate office, put her at her desk, walked up behind and began to touch her bra.

“I sat at the table, he was at the back and was pawing me,” she wrote. – I tried to close my hands, and he pushed his hands and touched me by the chest.

Experts examined the girl for bruises and the only thing found on her body was a small scratch on her finger.

The accusation was also based on the words of the girl, her mother and friend. Investigators also found a video from school surveillance cameras, which shows how one of the schoolgirls told Valery Nikolaevich that she had passed the debt, and he leaned over and began to say in her ear that she was good. This was interpreted later as a kiss.

During the investigation, a forensic medical examination was carried out, the biological traces of the teacher on the things of the victim were not found. The teacher was also tested for a tendency to pedophilia, but the result was negative.

Swimmer’s tail for the dinosaur ‘king’ of predators VIDEO – Terra & Poli

The largest predatory dinosaur of all time, the spinosaurus, swam in the Cretaceous rivers thanks to a long, high and flat tail, never seen before in any other dinosaur: resurfaced from the Moroccan Sahara desert, it was equipped with powerful flexible muscles and joints and moved sideways with an undulating motion like the tail of crocodiles. The discovery is published in Nature by an international group of paleontologists (led by Nizar Ibrahim of the National Geographic Explorer and the University of Detroit Mercy) in which seven Italian researchers participate.

“Now all the books on dinosaurs will have to be rewritten,” explains Cristiano Dal Sasso, paleontologist at the Natural History Museum in Milan who took part in the excavations supported by National Geographic. “This tail represents the first unmistakable proof that dinosaurs also invaded aquatic habitats with a completely new and original anatomical model, which erases the false belief that all featherless dinosaurs were forced to inhabit only mainland ecosystems.”

Thanks to the excavations conducted between 2015 and 2019 in the Kem Kem desert, paleontologists extracted from a rocky slope almost 40 vertebrae and other bones of the tail of a large dinosaur: “under the scorching sun of the Sahara and almost 50 degrees of temperature , it was a challenge to the limit of the impossible “, recalls Gabriele Bindellini, PhD student of the University of Milan. The bones were enclosed in the same layer from which, a few meters away, the incomplete spinosaurus skeleton published in Science in 2014 as the first semi-aquatic dinosaur had already come to light.

Reconstruction of the appearance of the spinosaurus (source: illustration by Davide Bonadonna)

Paleo-histological analysis confirmed that the bones all belonged to the same young specimen of spinosaurus, more than 10 meters long and weighing more than 3.5 tons. The tail, 5 meters long, had large muscle bundles at the base, while long spines (both above and below the vertebrae) made it high and flat like a long ribbon.

To understand how it works, Harvard biomechanics experts have created a model moved by a robotic arm inside the water tunnel. The results of the tests “show that in the water the tail of the spinosaurus had a propulsion efficiency much higher than the long and thin tails of typically terrestrial carnivorous dinosaurs – explains Dal Sasso – much more similar to that of the tails of living aquatic vertebrates, which swim also good against the current. “” The ribbon-like tail – adds co-author Simone Maganuco – also gave greater stability by reducing the tendency to roll. The large back sail, which perhaps functioned as a reverse keel, could also contribute to this. “

What a news! Unsuccessful jeans betrayed Gigi Hadid’s “pregnant” secret

The model is not quarantined.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid celebrated her birthday in a warm family circle on April 23. Coronavirus did not cancel the holiday, because the cozy atmosphere and picturesque nature made up for the lack of friends. The celebration turned out to be sincere, which reflects the happy face of the girl.

The keen eye of experts discerned at least two reasons that so inspired the birthday girl. From such a cutie can easily melt.

To startthe presence of ex-boyfriend Zayn Malikwho was generous in hugs and attention. Apparently, the light between the young people did not go out. The couple’s business reached the wedding, maybe the second pancake will not be lumpy?

Next reason to flutter in the cloudsexpectation of a “miracle child”. Unsuccessful jeans revealed Gigi’s “pregnant” secret – and an oversized sweater did not cover up an important event. High landing emphasized the rounded shape and highlighted the size of the chest, which added two times.

Now the puzzle has developed – it is clear the presence of Zane, who is dad, and that the model is waiting for maternity leave. It could easily go down the drain – contracts, shows and a career, but Gigi elegantly inscribed a decree in self-isolation. The beauty industry is in a difficult position due to losses, and while standing on its feet, the model will be on the podium.

You can catch two birds with one stone when you have a wit, a dream and a favorite job. Fans are happy for the older Hadid – the dynasty will continue with a charming baby. Here is the news!

Amid the recommendations for social distancing advised by the Moscow City Council to fight against Covid-19 pneumonia, the residents of the city who today have been authorized to travel on public transport Using QR codes, they found huge queues at the subway entrances this morning due to police controls.

According to the Moscow Radio Echo, users of the Moscow metro are being forced to wait 30 to 40 minutes so that the agents stationed at the entrance of the suburban can verify that all are provided with the QR code pass that has entered into force today and that is granted to authorized workers, those who go to the doctor or those who have been able to justify the urgent need of a displacement.

Social networks have been filled with criticism from citizens who fear that such a situation will trigger the number of Covid-19 cases due to the crowds and the short distance between people waiting in queues. Some have complained that, due to these traffic jams at the entrance to the subway, they have been late for an appointment with the doctor. There are also retentions on the access roads to Moscow, where it is also being verified that motorists carry the corresponding safe-conduct.

By order of the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobianin, these passes are mandatory as of today. The Moscow alderman has had to appeal to the Russian Ministry of the Interior for his patrols to speed up the procedures and prevent the need to verify the documentation causing dangerous overcrowding for health of citizens in a situation like the current one. The city’s Interior Department warned on Tuesday that such controls would be carried out on a large scale.

Two Roosters and a tail in the last bullfight in Madrid before the Spanish flu

Madrid

The cessation of bullfighting activity, forced by measures against the virus Covid-19, is the first to occur in Spain for more than a century, specifically since the deadly influenza epidemic of 1918, since bullfights were not stopped even during the Civil War.

The virus they called “Spanish flu”, The greatest pandemic of Humanity since the black plague of the Middle Ages, reached Europe in early 1918, with American soldiers sent to fight in World War I, and began to spread throughout Spain in May.

This type of flu, then unknown and without vaccines, caused 50 million deaths worldwide, of which more than 200,000 [se llega a hablar de 300.000] -10 percent of the population- occurred in Spain, where the liberal government of Manuel García Prieto it already took sharp measures in the month of October.

One of them was the closure of access to the major sources of contagion, in cities such as Zaragoza, where all acts of the Pilar fair, such as the bullfights in which the reforms of its old bullring were to be inaugurated, consisting of a new façade and the construction of the stands and volleys that increased its capacity to 14,000 spectators.

The last bullfight of that season of 18 was held in Madrid on October 10th, a show in which two great ephemerides in charge of two brother bullfighters: the farewell of the legendary Rafael El Gallo and the first concession of a tail to a bullfighter in the bullfighting history of the capital.

The protagonist of this unusual event was Joselito El Gallo -of whose deadly goring in Talavera de la Reina is now a century-after the bull “Sparrow” curdled, by the Marquis of Guadalest, the great task that motivated the trophy.

War stadion

As early as 1919, although the influenza virus was still latent, the bullfighting season developed normally, as it continued to happen year after year until the outbreak of the Civil warWhen bullfighting activity in Spain, although it decreased, it did not stop either.

Specifically, there were no more bulls in Spanish bullring for only one month in 1936, the time that elapsed since the heifer announced in Madrid on July 12, after they were also held the Sanfermines, until the bullfights resumed on August 16 at Las Ventas and at the Monumental de Barcelona.

In the capital, several festivals were organized in the first year of the conflict to benefit the welfare work of the Popular Front, with the crews doing the paseíllo with the raised fist, but the blockade of the national troops and the lack of bulls in the enclosures of the province, being sacrificed for consumption, prevented the organization of new festivities in Madrid.

On the other hand, bullfights and festivals were held in other parts of the republican zone, such as Barcelona and Valencia, where the militiamen carried Domingo Ortega on the shoulders in the first months of the war, as can be seen in a famous photo that afternoon.

Once the fronts were established, the frequency of bullfights in the call also increased national zone, especially in Andalusia. Almost all of them had a “patriotic” and charitable character -and with a Roman greeting from the bullfighters to the presidency-, from the first, on October 11, 36 in Huelva, until the ceasefire on April 1, 39.

Brief break

Although Seville did not hold its fair in Seville for two years, the Plaza de la Maestranza continued to host a good number of bullfights and, above all, bullfights, in which those who were to be the greatest figures of the 1940s took shape: Pepe Luis Vázquez and Manuel Rodríguez «Manolete».

Until then, except for the brief break forced by the flu in 1918, the bullfights had been carried out without alterations throughout the previous century, without being affected even by the Carlist wars or the crisis of the colonies.

In fact, even on May 2, 1898, when the so-called Cavite disaster after which Spain lost the Philippine Islands, there were bulls in Madrid, since the Sagasta government prevented the logical suspension of the celebration “so as not to depress the mood of the public.”

The only historical moment in which bullfighting shows stopped in Spain during the 19th century was between 1805 and 1808, due to the prohibition dictated by Carlos IV, which, paradoxically, was canceled by José Bonaparte upon his arrival to the throne to ingratiate himself with the population.

Two stoppages, then, in little more than a century, to which, 102 years after the last, the one forced by this other coronavirus pandemic has joined, which has already prevented two important bullfighting fairs from being held in Valencia and that of April in Seville, in addition to another good number of celebrations.
