“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.

I do not see, like Christiane Singer, in what “evil contains something divine”

I started, for ease, to go to your sidebar ” What you must remember “ and I read the extract from Christiane Singer’s book: “Even evil contains something divine. … by recognizing, in order to combat it, the part of divine which is in it. “ I understand that, in your article, you were quoting these sentences but from there to make one ” What you must remember “ strikes me as a shame!

For my part, I don’t see how “Evil contains something divine” : and this statement by Christiane Singer is so “huge” that it would seem good and necessary to take advantage of the Church people you interviewed to ask them how they understand this sentence. This would have helped “ordinary Christians” like me to understand!

I keep the sentence of Jesus in the Gospel of April 23: “He who refuses to believe the son … the wrath of God remains on him. “ It is well written ” anger “ and not revenge or punishment… (like a father and a mother can be angry with their child, without necessarily punishing him). Also read the chapter “The spiritual fight” in Michel Rondet sj’s book: Let yourself be guided by the spirit.

Mass on screen. What a strange thing ….

A virtual mass? What a strange thing. The events ask us the very fundamental question: can there be a religion without rite? Asked at this level, I have no answer and I suspect that it would not be the same for everyone. Personally and from experience I challenge the screens. We have barely started to tame them and today the negative effects seem to me to be more important than the positive ones. So, let’s read again Mass on the world by Teilhard de Chardin. We are by baptism “Priests, prophets and kings”, and for a time could we not find ourselves united in prayer with a bare minimum of tangible signs?

Things to do during the coronavirus (VII) quarantine: how to soundproof your house without doing works | ICON Design

Isolated yes, but not entirely. These days of quarantine because of coronavirus (COVID-19) we are being more aware than ever of all those details that we lacked to condition our house and really live it. Thorough cleaning and disinfection, fixing uncomfortable misalignments such as a leaking cistern, or soundproofing a room well to stop hearing the neighbor, so invisible and at the same time so present.

Footsteps and creaks, piped music, mixers, domestic discussions, night terrors, barking … The soundtrack that accompanies any community of neighbors, now extended 24 hours a day without pause and, in some cases, at very high levels of decibels if you are unlucky to live in a noisy neighborhood.

According to the WHO, developing our work and personal lives in a noisy environment is one of the main risks for both health mental as well as physical. Good insulation is one of the keys that must be taken into account when planning a reform, but if your apartment is for rent or you could not condition it at the time, there are alternatives to soundproof it without the need for work.

Before undertaking isolation, you must specify where the acoustic impact comes from. This will make the damping level up to 85% more effective, according to Leroy Merlin. In the most annoying cases, they are easily detected with a simple silent listen. If it were more confusing noises, caused by downspouts or appliances, from Housy They propose to use the mobile to measure decibels, with applications such as transforming it into a sound level meter, such as Sound Meter or NIOSH Sound Level Meter.

The logical first step is to eliminate the noises in our own house, caused for example by household appliances that are not used regularly. These are as follows:

1. Anti-noise paint, from NASA to the home

Originally created by NASA to protect the pavement of special ships, insulating paint has ceased to be science fiction to become one more ally when it comes to conditioning houses. This acrylic material composed of latex and water not only insulates from cold and heat, but also reduces the transfer of unwanted noise and vibrations.

Its technology based on a composition of microspheres, resin and filters generates a membrane capable of absorbing sound and reducing it by 30%. Silent Running SR 1000 or Serenity Base Coat are some of the brands that market this product. Apply it like any other paint: after cleaning the dust and dirt from the surface (it is suitable for plaster as well as wood, fiberglass, metal …), spread a first coat with a roller or a gun. Leave dry between 24h and 48h and add a second layer to reinforce its effectiveness.

2. Isolate with furniture and decoration

soundproof house

If you take advantage of these days to give a new air to your house, keep in mind that many decorative elements can reinforce the insulation against heat and noise. A shelf in solid wood like the Ikea Hemnes model It will not only serve as extra storage, but also as an acoustic wall on the wall where you place it.

Do not forget to cover it with many books so that the sound does not penetrate. Create compositions with mirrors of different sizes and thicknesses as sample Graphic de Maisons du Monde It will help contain adjacent noise as well. The mural designs of Desenio.es They will bring, at affordable prices, a Scandinavian touch to any room.

Wall decorations are not just a trend, they are also an effective soundproofing element. The wool hangers, like the ones designed by Jungalowwhose store on-line also distributes in Spain, they add texture to the ready walls without overloading them. An idea to muffle noise in the bedroom is lay a tapestry, like these from Casa Josephine, as a headboard, which also adds a lot of personality to the room.

The Sancal firm offers acoustic panels with sophisticated and decorative designs, like the Beetle series, designed by the Valencian studio Mut Design, furniture with sound absorbing propertiessuch as bedside tables and shelves Shelf from the designer’s Turati collection Juan Ibáñez Lax, wave acoustic dome Tartana, by Isaac Piñeiro, from the Nadadora studio, with which you can isolate, for example, a reading corner.

Finally, if you had considered covering a wall with a painted paper, it is the opportunity to choose a sound absorbing one, like those of the jungle collection Feanne, by Tecnografica.

On the floor, the rugs will be a good ally to mitigate the lower waves and our own footsteps. If you are looking to invest in a new one, think about both the design and its thickness and density. A greater number of fibers such as those contained in the knotted wool will make the sound wave more easily lost between its irregular surface. Kave’s Bahiti rug, woven using the traditional method tufting and a design that recalls the Bauhaus tapestries, is an attractive formula to isolate your living room from the floor.

If the noise comes from the street, it can be placated with thick velvet or linen curtains, which will also help retain sunlight and keep the house warm for much longer. To enclose the main door and prevent noise from the common areas of the building from being transferred to the house, you can place a cushion or weatherstrip at the bottom. That unevenness that the floor usually presents in relation to the door frame will be covered instantly, deadening both the sound and the cold that enters from outside.

3. Wooden ceiling lights to camouflage foreign footprints

soundproof house


Wood is a very versatile ecological material that can be applied in multiple ways. From wooden soffits that can be placed on the work ceiling to mitigate the treads of upper floors to overlapping slabs on the lower pavement if you need to insulate in that direction.

They are also a good remedy to camouflage the sound that is amplified in the corners, where the sound tends to bounce with greater intensity. To mitigate it, you can place those parquet sheets that were left over in the reform or even a wooden piece of furniture that acts as a wall to counteract the amplifying effect.

4. Insulate insulation: the immediate solution to attack the echo between neighbors and minimize your noise

If the wall that separates your house from that of your neighbor has an empty air chamber, EcoGreenHome It proposes a fast and effective solution that does not require work to eliminate the leak of sounds.

The first thing is to find out if the walls have an air chamber. As indicated, Supafil, manufacturer of mineral wool for thermoacoustic insulation, if the house was built before 1979, it most likely does. “Put your hand closer to the plugs (or to the hole in the blind strip if you want to isolate a wall that faces the outside). If you notice a small current, there is an air chamber,” they continue. The last trick is to hit the wall from the window frame towards the ends of the wall to check that it sounds hollow, in which case, there is an air chamber in which to insulate the insulation.

This technique is valid for any surface that you want to insulate –floor, ceiling or walls–, and also helps to correct the echo that is created between the walls. It also reduces airborne noise caused by music or traffic and is an excellent acoustic barrier.

Cellulose, rock wool or wood fiber They are materials that fulfill this function, as indicated by EcoGreenHome. The cellulose is not only 100% ecological, being created with recycled paper, but it is more economical and acts as a vapor diffuser that also protects from moisture and mold.

This insulating material must be injected into the chamber through a hole that is then covered with putty and paint. Companies like Ecoinsulation They allow you to rent the necessary machinery, which reduces the final cost of a professional intervention by up to 35% if you do it yourself.

5. Insulating plates: the professional method to combat very noisy neighbors

Often the walls that separate the houses are not properly insulated and all kinds of conversations or even the sound of television are transferred. Leroy Merlin proposes to mount on the surface a structure of metal profiles in which to fit insulating panels that we will later cover with laminated plaster (as this video shows).

This system can be laborious and with it you lose a few centimeters of space in the room, but it will reduce noise efficiently and durably. First, the metal structure adapted to the measurements of our wall, formed by channels at the base and vertical studs along the wall. If necessary, we will cut the metal with a tin snips. Two posts are placed every 60 centimeters that are screwed together to support the plates. Remember to wear protective glasses and gloves at all times.

To prevent the metal from transmitting the external sound, we must isolate all the faces that are in contact with other materials. This is achieved with duct tape that should be the same width as the metal profiles. We will first glue a strip along the base of the channel that is in contact with the floor, ceiling or plasterboard and press with our hands. We cut the rest with a cutter and do the same on the front. The procedure will be applied later to the studs.

Next, we fix the channels to the floor and ceiling using dowels and 6 mm wide screws. To optimize the insulation, it is convenient that the structure does not lean directly on the wall. Sheet metal dampers will create an air chamber, thus reinforcing the soundproofing. After the lateral uprights are fixed with screws to the walls, as a frame. The rest of the uprights are held diagonally in the structure with three shock absorbers, each screwed by a plug and a screw of the same length creating an H-structure. Finally, the connection between channels and uprights with screws is reinforced.

We already have manufactured the metal structure where the insulating panels that we have chosen will be placed. It is recommended to always use a spongy material such as polyurethane plates. They have a high density, are inexpensive and waterproof while allowing air to breathe, and are also easy to adhere due to their lightness. In Amazon will find them in many thicknesses and sizes.

Panels made with recycled textile fibers (as the video shows) they are a very effective ecological alternative to insulate a wall. The cork, hemp or wood fiber boards They are also powerful insulators that not only reduce the environmental impact due to their composition, but will also allow you to save on your energy bill by protecting against cold and heat.

The last step is close the structure with laminated plasterboard that reinforce isolation. Cut the panels with a cutter, always respecting 10 millimeters of distance from the ground to cover possible expansions. Screw every 30 cm with phosphate screws, and cover each joint and screw hole with laminated plaster joint paste. Then add a joint paper tape and apply a second layer of paste. When the surface is dry, you can sand and paint it or even cover it with decorative paper.

6. If you want to set up a rock group at home, insulating pads

soundproof house


Often used for recording studios, foam pads are an easy installation method that will prevent our own noise from being transferred to the outside. In addition, they eliminate the vibrations generated by the speakers of a music system and the uncomfortable movement of a work. They also mitigate shocks and insulate from thermal elements and, due to their low weight, they can be handled without effort.

In the portal Pads Store You will find a multitude of measures and sizes according to the space you want to intervene. To facilitate their placement, they usually have a self-adhesive band on one side. Paste it on the surface and add as many as necessary to completely cover the area.

Studies have endorsed the benefits of solving puzzles for years, ranging from reinforcement of spatial skills to the development of values ​​of collaboration and cooperation (when they are done in a group). The puzzles are used in therapies to combat dementia and they bring some calm in stressful situations. In Spain, since Pedro Sánchez announced the state of alarm for Covid-19, almost three weeks ago, they have been sold as donuts. Javier Buzón, manager of one of the main e-commerce In the sector, Casa del Puzzle, with a physical warehouse in Seville, attends us by phone between packages. “This is incredible”. Around him, thousands of boxes ready to be sent to the homes of the inmates, since the trade on-line continues operating after the latest restrictions. “There are 40,000 puzzles here. Now we are at 50%. We have limited daily orders to continue providing quality service,” says Buzón, whose computer flashes every 31 minutes (on average) with a new order from any corner of the country. And the tablets, in the drawer and without battery.

Have you ever sold that much?

Never. In 12 years in the store, I have never seen anything like it. We are receiving 400 to 450 orders a day, many of up to five puzzles. We had reached peaks of 350 some specific day of Christmas, when the deadline to buy gifts was running out. But this…?! And it is not a single day, nor two: it has been going on for more than two weeks and in a sustained way. We are the new toilet paper.

How do you supply?

Working from sun to shade. We are only three people. I was in management, but now I also receive orders and prepare shipments. At other times of the year we are more. But historically, March and April are very bad months for the puzzle, because the good weather begins and people prefer to go outside. Well … preferred.

In other words, you become gold while the rest sinks. How does that work?

On the shelves of the Casa del Puzzle warehouse in Seville, there have never been so many holes.


On the shelves of the Casa del Puzzle warehouse in Seville, there have never been so many holes.

It already happened to us with the 2008 crisis, which also sold a lot. We also know that we have quite a few clients with anxiety issues. Now the feelings are mixed. We are obtaining a remarkable economic benefit. But I am not able to feel joy in the situation. On the other hand, it would not change anything that we did not sell. I hope I’m taking some distraction where it’s needed most. The puzzles keep very exciting stories.

Tell me some.

Once a father called me to make an order for his son, who would be five or six years old. They were from Navarra. And the boy had cancer: he was undergoing chemotherapy and wanted a puzzle for hospital evenings. Upon receiving it, the boy himself called me to thank him. I cried. That’s what I mean: perhaps we are reaching places where we really need us. But, well, there is everything: recently a customer wrote within half an hour of placing an order, to cancel it, because he had regretted being a non-essential product. And there are those who insult us for continuing to operate. I understand the reluctance. If they tell me to close, it would seem perfect to me.

How do you make the deals?

With all security measures. We contract an external messaging service. But we know that they leave the packages at the door, they don’t take money and they are protected. We usually sold cash on delivery. Now it is not possible: you have to pay on-line.

What are the best selling sizes?

For adults, who are the ones we sell the most, of about 1,000 pieces. But there is one of 42,000, which is called Around the World, and it is sold out.

42,000 ?!

Yes, recreate all the iconic buildings in the world. It is 7 meters wide by 2 meters high. Is a top sales.

And any preferred theme for times of pandemic?

No, the usual ones. Even people who ask for one and if it is exhausted, tell you to send the one you want. Of works of art, cities, animals …

Things to do during coronavirus (V) quarantine: how to clean the hood filter without damaging it | ICON Design

The kitchen as a place of therapy. Keep your hands on the dough during quarantine for him coronavirus (COVID – 19), is becoming one of the healthiest escape routes. According to it affirms a study by Cambridge UniversityEating dinner at home every day means eating an average of 320 fewer calories (and up to 16 grams of sugar) a day. In addition, when we cook each element, we become aware of its preparation, thus controlling the quantities and satisfying ourselves in the moment.

Generating more dirt when our activity in the kitchen increases is, if anything, the only drawback. As part of the deep cleaning that we can carry out these days, it is essential to keep the entire work area in optimal conditions, free of grease and bacteria that can lead to more serious problems.

clean filters quarantine hood


The hood or fume extractor hood of a kitchen is the perfect candidate for accumulating dirt, but often due to its location, we forget to clean it properly. Not only do they absorb odors and grease from the kitchen, but they also free the entire room of annoying fumes by purifying the air.

Thorough filter cleaning

Before cleaning, we must remember what type of hood we have in the kitchen. The most frequent are extraction and absorb all the circulating smoke to expel it to the outside through a tube that connects to the nearest facade. This type of extractors have removable metal filters that we must clean regularly so that they are not damaged.

The Teka appliance chain recommends a thorough cleaning every two months, which will be simplified if we carry out daily care with a cloth moistened with warm water and a few drops of degreased agent or neutral soap. When removing the filters, it is necessary unplug any outlet and make sure the hood is cold. The instructions manual specifies how to remove the filters, something that varies depending on the model and manufacturer, although they usually have a simple mechanism that allows pressing on one side to remove the opposite. If the user guide is not retained, it can be found on page on-line Of the brand.

The easiest way to clean the filters thoroughly is with a simple cycle in the dishwasher. If not possible, it can also be done by hand. To do this, get a basin or a place to immerse them in boiling water and degreasing soap. One of the most widespread detergents in our country, made with natural fats and oils that respect the skin and the environment, is the Beltrán soap.

After waiting a few minutes for the fat to soften, rub with the mixture and a soft scouring pad or a handle nail brush. Then rinse with clean water and allow the filters to dry well. Remove the remaining moisture with kitchen paper.

The hardest part, the interior

Cleaning the inside of the hood is the most expensive task due to its angular shape that makes access difficult. First, spray with a strong degreaser, type KH7, a soft sponge to remove fat that has stuck to it. If the dirt persists, make a mixture of hot water, baking soda, and a degreasing agent, such as a concentrated detergent or cleaning vinegar.

With a soft scouring pad, and using circular movements to avoid scratching the surface, it firmly removes the remains of grease, where a multitude of bacteria that are not in sight accumulate. An excess of grease can obstruct the duct and hinder the correct transfer of the fumes. Therefore, it is advisable to repeat your cleaning every month.

Natural remedies: before dismantling

Lemon or vinegar are powerful degreasing agents, as well as an ecological and economical alternative to supermarket chemicals. The portal Cleaning Tips recommends filling a saucepan with two liters of water and the juice of three lemons and bringing the mixture to a boil. This process will be done with the hood on and without disassembling for approximately 20 minutes.

If you prefer to substitute citrus for white vinegar, it will require at least one hour of cooking. In both cases, try to place the pot on the plate that forms a vertical line with the extraction nozzle to make cleaning more effective. As the water dissolution decreases or becomes dirty, add more water and lemon or vinegar, thus preventing the container from burning. The steam will condense the upper fat into a liquid that will fall onto the plate, previously covered with absorbent paper so that it does not get dirty.

Next, disassemble the filters to soak them in soap and water, as we pointed out in the first step. Go over the most difficult areas inside with a cloth soaked in hot water and ammonia. In the corners, it is recommended to use a soft toothbrush. Don’t forget to always carry rubber gloves and a face mask to avoid breathing toxic gases that ammonia can generate.

Care not to scratch and ugly the surface

The exterior surface of most modern hoods is made of stainless steel, highly resistant but also very sensitive to scratches. Avoid using very hot water and stiff-bristled brushes, and better apply neutral soaps or wipes specific to stainless steel, such as you are from Siemens for 6.95 euros. Wipe them all over the area and then dry with a cotton cloth or a paper towel that is not rough. This process should become a mandatory gesture after cooking, such as cleaning the ceramic hob.

If the hood is made of aluminum or has glass elements, it will be enough to use glass cleaner if the grease is not very strong. The Novy kitchen firm recommends to avoid in any case scrapers and scouring pads, and to use a soft sponge better so as not to scratch the appliance. The controls and remote controls in ceiling hoods require special care, since the entrance of water or any liquid can damage the electronic system. If the hood stops working, it is best to contact a specialist before handling it, as the warranty could be lost.

Should I clean the recirculation filters?

Unlike smoke extractors, recirculation hoods absorb and purify the air through activated carbon filters, returning it clean and without the need for an exit abroad. These strainers retain impurities thanks to their porous surface and it is not necessary to clean them thoroughly, at most remove the grease with a damp cloth but without immersing them in water.

Carbon filters have a limited life and should be changed periodically to avoid the risk of fire and ensure its correct operation. To remove them, it is usually necessary to remove the outer cover of the hood, unscrewing the part if indicated in its user manual, which also indicates the frequency with which this operation must be done.

Currently, there are hoods that allow the use of regenerative or reusable carbon filters lasting up to 10 years. It is advisable to clean them once or twice a year, placing them in the oven for two hours at a constant temperature of 200ºC.
