The crisis invites us to re-read thinkers who alertaient on the limits of our development, and to hear the current thoughts and ideas to bring to birth a world that is more human and more sustainable.
The trial, which had begun, raised suspicions of family disagreement.
Lera Kudryavtseva appealed to the court with a demand to get 2.5 million rubles from the producer of “Tender May” Andrei Razin for insults. Razin previously stated that Kudryavtseva was engaged in services to satisfy men for money. It is noteworthy that the producer announced this for a long time, but the presenter appealed to the court only now.
At the same time, there were suspicions that to get compensation from the producer is a necessary measure, because husband Igor Makarov no longer contains a woman because of her affair on the side. At the same time, Kudryavtseva incurred large cash costs as a result of breast surgery. And “Muz-TV” broke off a long-term contract with her, depriving her of the presenter at a music award. It becomes obvious that money is needed, especially during the period of isolation.
The fact that the presenter can still have a connection with former boyfriend Sergei Lazarev has been repeatedly written in the press. One of the episodes of the Secret for a Million program, in which Lera burst into tears during a conversation with the singer, also hinted strongly at this. In this case, after breaking with Kudryavtseva, Lazarev did not have a new passion.
It was previously indicated that while Makarov was sitting with his daughter, Kudryavtseva “pinched” with Gulyaev in public. And also the media noticed that Igor Makarov is more attached to a joint daughter than a spouse.
It is possible that Kudryavtseva “knocks out” money from Razin due to a lack of family support. However, the official version of the appeal to the court so far remains the response to insults.
It seems that the daughter still can not forgive Anastasia for a divorce from her father.
Anna Zavorotnyuk left her husband and father of their children, Dmitry Stryukov, because of an affair with Sergei Zhigunov. At that time, the family lived in America, but because of new love and filming in “My Fair Nanny,” Anastasia moved to Russia, leaving her 10-year-old daughter with her father. It seems that Anna still can not forgive her mother for betrayal …. Moreover, does Anna “despise” her mother?
This conclusion can be made based on the girl’s posts on Instagram.
“Take everything from life” is a bad motto. Do not take everything indiscriminately, learn to separate the important from the secondary and not to miss what you really do not need, ”Anna writes in her profile, hinting that she does not approve of people throwing themselves in the pool.
But her mother is one of such women, given her often-changing lovers. She took everything from life … for which she could pay. Anna, it seems, believes that Anastasia is paying for the fact that she once betrayed children and family.
Probably, sad thoughts appeared in Anna’s head after she found out that Sergey Zhigunov had broken up with his wife. It seems that the daughter of the “beautiful nanny” is afraid that after recovery she may again retort his sweet speeches and abandon Chernyshev for old love. However, there are positive aspects to this whole situation. The fact that Anna spends her energy reflecting on old grievances indicates that her mother is on the path to recovery, and all the girl’s thoughts are no longer occupied by her illness.
For months Laurie Giordano had been telling her son’s story to anyone who wanted to hear – about how his self-styled 16-year-old Zach, should never have collapsed in the scorching heat of Florida nearly three years ago. He died days later.
For weeks Giordano drove six hours each to meet the legislators of the Capitol to push them to act, to understand the unbearable pain of a parent who was trying to make sense of the death of a child.
At Florida’s Capitol in Tallahassee, Giordano crossed paths on Thursday with Lori Alhadeff, who lost 14-year-old daughter Alyssa while filming the Parkland school. Both talked about how the tragedy and loss are motivating them to put pressure on legislation to save other children and parents from suffering.
Giordano and Alhadeff are connected for their grief over the loss of children and work to convince lawmakers to make schools safer, albeit in different ways.
Alhadeff has returned to urge lawmakers to request panic buttons in schools for faster help. This was one of the many school security measures generated by the shootings of February 14, 2018, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which killed 17. The bill, known as “Alyssa’s Law”, requires that every school campus elementary, middle and high schools both public, including charter schools, to establish a mobile system to alert authorities of emergencies.
And Giordano was back on Capitol Hill sitting in the public gallery that overlooked the floor of the Senate, where lawmakers unanimously approved a bill renamed “Zachary Martin Act”. The legislation would require public schools across Florida to do more to prevent heat-related injuries and deaths.
For a few minutes, they talked about their children and their shared mission. Giordano admired the pendant hanging on Alhadeff’s neck that bears Alyssa’s smiling face.
“I don’t know how it all happened in your tragedy, but I kept thinking that help was coming,” Alhadeff told Jordan on that fateful day in February 2018.
“And help wasn’t coming,” Giordano interrupted, finishing Alhadeff’s thought.
Another distressed Florida mother, Denise Williams, wandered the Capitol on Thursday to begin lobbying for a new law on behalf of her daughter Terissa Gautney, who died on a school bus in 2018.
Ever since they lost their daughter, Williams and her husband have pushed school boards and sought the help of lawmakers to request lifesaving training for school bus drivers and better communication equipment on school buses.
He drove 250 miles (400 kilometers) from his home in Clearwater to the Capitol, describing the trip as a decision sprinkles of the moment. She sat down to watch the Senate and the Chamber conduct business, and did everything she could to plan her next steps towards making change.
“I came here to see what I could have done,” said Williams.
Williams would later cross paths with Alhadeff on Capitol Hill. He said he wanted to learn from Alhadeff, who is now a member of the Broward County school board.
“Our children have been lost in a traumatic situation and my heart breaks for any other mother. And I can feel the pain they feel, “said Alhadeff of Williams and Jordan.” Even if it involved different types of tragedies, it is still the pain of losing a child. “
Giordano’s son died in the summer of 2017 after collapsing in the Florida heat during rehearsals.
After the death of his son, Giordano founded the Zach Martin Memorial Foundation, which worked to raise awareness of the dangers of heat-related stress. As part of its work, the foundation donated 40 cooling tanks to schools across Florida.
His son, he said, would still be alive if life-saving equipment were on the sidelines during rehearsals – perhaps a tub full of water – to immediately cool his body.
“I’m exhausted, but it’s okay. Once this is over, I’m going to collapse for a week, “said Giordano waiting for lawmakers to take action on his bill.
“A six-hour trip is a long time to be alone with your thoughts,” he said, “that’s when emotions are really difficult. That’s when tears flow.”
If approved by the legislature and signed by Governor Ron DeSantis, public schools should have a tub or other large container filled with cold water on the sidelines during all games and practices. Schools should also have defibrillators to revive affected athletes. The proposed law would also require schools to train staff on how to recognize signs of heat-related ailments, including potentially fatal heatstrokes, and to take life-saving actions.
But even on the verge of success, Giordano said there is little comfort.
“I still cry every day,” he said. “There is no consolation. No, it doesn’t improve. “
The enemy Hank Bolden
faced did not come from a distant front line.
It came from the skies.
It’s a battle that’s still going on 65 years later. Bolden, who is now 82 years old, is an atomic veteran – one of hundreds of thousands of American service members used in human testing by the United States government during post-WWII nuclear tests and sworn to a secret life.
“They wanted to see how the living soldiers would resist the exposure
to radiation, ”recalls Bolden. “Before using live soldiers they were using
mannequins. But you don’t get real results using mannequins as you would
live bodies. “
A DIFFERENT TIME
While accompanying a friend to a New Haven recruiting station in 1953, Bolden was invited to join the army. At just 16 years old then and already out of high school, he admits that he “pulled down” his birth certificate to move to the age of 18, joining the approximately 200,000 underage soldiers who would have served during the Second World War and the eras of the Korean War.
After basic training in
Fort Dix was assigned to work as a tank mechanic in Texas before moving to Texas
California and becoming a surface-to-air missile mechanic.
Despite an executive order issued in July
26, 1948, by President Harry S. Truman to desegregate the armed forces, the last one
the all black units of the army were not abolished until 1954. And in 1955, Bolden
he says, racist attitudes persist even after the units have been racially integrated.
“The residual thoughts of people were firm
linger, “he says.” My outfit was 800 people strong. Thirteen of us were
black. Ten were from the South, who were more tolerant of treatment
they got racially. But the three of us from the North couldn’t tolerate it,
so I have had many fights over this. So I was the guy they wanted
get rid of.”
It would not be the only race
discrimination Bolden would witness as a soldier.
In 1955, the seventeen year old
he was suddenly ordered to the Nevada desert without explanation.
“They don’t tell you what you’re going to face,” he said. “Nobody
they knew what they were going to face. ”
What he would eventually face was a classified operation known as Operation Teapot at the Nevada Test Site. In a series of 14 bomb throws, or “hits”, military officials tried to test the effects of nuclear bombs on structures and strategies, animals and people.
All races of military personnel
participated in the Teapot operation. But upon arrival in Nevada, Bolden was
astounded to accomplish all the other soldiers in his new specially selected unit
for a mysterious assignment they were also black.
“There was this myth about black people
be able to resist, tolerate certain things more than any other race “, he
He says. “So it was a test on that too.”
AN ATOMIC NIGHT
One morning in February, Bolden
the unit was ordered in a desert trench. Unbeknownst to them, it was excavated
the expected route of the fallout, only 2.8 miles away from what it would have become
ground zero for the launch of an atomic bomb.
Even though a countdown sounded on the speakers, Bolden says, the soldiers still had no idea what they were about to face. Without protective gear in addition to the normal fabrics and helmets, they waited and looked.
“They tell you to cover your eyes”
On February 18, 1955, Shot Wasp, the first nuclear test of Operation Teapot, detonated a Mark 6 nuclear bomb dropped by a B-36 exactly at noon. A monstrous cloud of mushrooms filled the sky, reaching 21,500 feet in height.
“With radiation, when you put your arms over your eyes or hands, you actually see the bones, you see the bones in your body from the exposure. You can see your skeleton. “
After the relapse the warning came.
“You swore not to speak
“said Bolden. The soldiers were threatened with imprisonment and fines for violation
For 60 years, Bolden didn’t tell anyone. No this
family, not his wife, not his children. Not even her doctors when she spies on her
tumors have started to show. He developed bladder and posterior subcapsular cancer
cataract and in 1990 multiple myeloma was diagnosed.
“They actually gave me three and a half years
four years to live, ”recalls Bolden.
So in 1995 I should have been a statistic. “
But in 1995, Bolden was in remission. He is a citizen
the secret was coming to light.
Government figures estimate between 400,000 and 550,000 US military personnel who participated in a series of nuclear tests between 1946 and 1992. According to the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency, this includes post occupation forces -Second World War of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, prisoners of war in Japan at the end of the Second World War, participants in the atmospheric nuclear tests in Nevada and the Pacific from 1945 to 1962 and participants in the underground nuclear tests in Nevada from 1951 to 1992.
Many of these “atomic veterans” have succumbed before their own
the stories have become public, their bodies are full of tumors. In
1990, the veil of secrecy began to lift.
After setting up the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to investigate 10-year experiments, President Clinton made a formal apology to American atomic veterans on October 3, 1995. By order of the president, Congress would repeal the nuclear radiation agreement law. and secrecy, allowing atomic veterans to talk about their experiences without fear of fines or treason charges. And financial compensation has been opened to all qualified atomic veterans.
“Those who led the government when these decisions were made are no longer here to take responsibility for what they have done. They are not here to apologize to survivors, family members or their communities whose lives have been overshadowed by shadow of these choices So today, on behalf of another generation of American leaders and another generation of American citizens, the United States of America offers sincere apologies to those of our citizens who have undergone these experiments. the government is wrong, we have a moral responsibility to admit it, “said President Bill Clinton on October 3, 1995
But the television address has been obscured. The same happened
day when OJ Simpson’s verdict was issued in a live classroom feed, taking
on televisions and news cycles across America.
As a result, many skilled veterans had no idea of the ban
the secrecy had been lifted, nor that they could claim benefits. Bolden no
find out until he researched the Internet, he says, in 2015.
“I was once so angry and so aggravating with the government that I thought I would be murdered to keep me from talking,” he says.
When Bolden attempted to apply for subsidies, he found that the burden of proof was placed on his fellow atomic veterans. The government would give compensation from the date a complaint was filed, but not retroactively, and only if the veteran could prove that he had participated in the tests – which proved to be an almost impossible task after millions of military documents were destroyed in a 1973 fire against the National Staff Registration Center. As many as 18 million documents were burned, including 80% of all army personnel discharged between 1912 and 1960.
“They hoped for it
would have died sooner or would have been one of those guys who surrendered ”
says Anthony Bolden, Hank’s son. “No thanks. Hank doesn’t have it.”
After paying her
own pocket for a polygraph lie detector pouch, Hank eventually claimed
approved, setting a precedent for other atomic veterans whose records were
Hit a high note
“The love of music has
I’ve always been there. “
After his honorable discharge
from the army, Bolden went to work as an engineer before deciding to pursue a
career as a jazz musician who works while his family grows. Tell the story
while cradling the tenor saxophone that has been at his side since 1967. The “Rolls
Royce “of tools, he says.
The brand is Selmer. IS
in a strange coincidence, the model is a 6 sign. It is the same name as the shot
Wasp atomic bomb design.
But this is where the
the similarities end. The bomb was his nightmare. Music, his dream and his
outlet to work through the trauma of what lived in Nevada
“It’s like the blood inside
my veins. It takes away all my other thoughts, “he says
Bolden is finally
he receives compensation from the government and is now using it to help make his dream come true.
He returned to school, studying jazz performances at Hartt University of Hartford
“They are like the relic
here with all these kids, you know, “he chuckles.
Professor Javon Jackson
says that the 82-year-old is leaving a unique mark on the prestigious program.
“He has a lot of emotion,” says Jackson. “He is a very bluesy, very full of feeling, a natural player. His life, wisdom and the things he has acquired allow him to play the way it sounds.”
The vast majority of
Today, the American atomic veterans of the atmospheric test era are gone. About
400,000 veterans were present during these tests, according to the veterans
Administration. Survivors’ numbers vary, from around 10,000 to 80,000
Bolden believes he is one of only two surviving African American atomic veterans who are recognized and receive compensation from the government. He is on a mission to reach as many survivors as possible and help them request the long-awaited recognition and compensation.
And he’s sharing his story, he says, to make sure the plight of American atomic veterans is no longer ignored.
“When people like me pass by, this won’t be part of the story unless someone makes sure it’s kept alive.”
The sudden triumph of Dmitry and his appeal to the court with a suit for the inheritance of the property of the performer led to such an idea.
A couple of days ago it became known that Dmitry Shepelev again “took up the old.” The presenter filed a lawsuit against Jeanne’s parents, according to media reports, the lawsuit is related to the inheritance of property.
It is worth noting that for several years between Dmitry and Friske’s parents there was a “lull” in the relationship, but after a “well-wisher” paid off the family’s debt to Rusfond, Shepelev suddenly remembered that Platon had not yet got all of Zhanna’s property, for example, the singer’s apartment, which the native performers keep in memory of her.
It is likely that such a decision by Dmitry is not at all connected with a thirst for justice. And this despite the fact that the media for a long time literally “shouted” that Shepelev had long lost his place on Channel One, which already suggests that Dmitry is walking off the wedding with Tulupova with the money of the deceased Friske.
Apparently, Shepelev decided to marry Tulupova on the property of the singer seized by Friske’s parents. The network has repeatedly said that the TV presenter took money from her personal accounts.
And this is a completely justified statement, because the main heir to Jeanne is precisely Plato, whose official guardian is Dmitry Shepelev.
This means that until the son of the performer is 18 years old, it’s Dmitry who will dispose of Jeanne’s inheritance, at least it will be completely legal, although unscrupulous, according to many.
It is likely that the money that, according to rumors, Shepelev managed to hide from the law and Zhanna’s parents ran out, and he decided to sue the singer’s relatives again, especially since they no longer have any debts and nothing will stop the TV presenter from getting Zhanna’s last property because Platosha has every right to do so. They say about such that their conscience died, in this case, after Friske.
