Ivankovskoe reservoir has long been one of the popular places for fishing competitions at various levels. The reason is simple: First, it is located relatively close to Moscow — the intersection of the main routes of the modern land and air transport, and secondly, even when a relative proximity to the capital of the local nature is not experiencing such a powerful anthropogenic impact as other reservoirs near Moscow. In this case the role played and the consent of the hotel complex «Konakovo River Club» to take their possessions in a large group of anglers, who were to find

The winners of the Great Troubles

In November, Russia celebrated the holiday — Day of National Unity. 400 years ago, October 22 (November 1), 1612, soldiers militia led by Kuzma Minin and a citizen of Prince Dmitry Pozharsky stormed China Town, captured by the invaders. October 27 Polish garrison surrendered, and that moment was a turning point in the history of the Time of Troubles — a period when Russia was simply not in a protracted decline, and in fact, on the verge of losing its statehood and could disappear from the maps as a single power.

GIBSON SGJ

How much? And the real thing? Gibson’s new stripped-down SG offers the promise of genuine rocking thrills for remarkably little outlay. Review by Martyn Casserly

There are some words that you just don’t expect to see alongside each other. ‘Reality TV’ and ‘quality’ are a few, ‘Edward Snowden’ and ‘fair trial’ are more, but two that nary grace a well-constructed sentence are ‘Gibson’ and ‘cheap’ – unless you also add the words ‘Mel’, ‘takes’, and ‘a shot’ into the mix, maybe with a dash of ‘drunken outburst’ for good measure. So it was with tremulous fingers that we unzipped the

It seems funny to look at the game, which is already 10 or 20 years, and to think of a time when people make it, think that they are doing something high-tech and revolutionary. This gives an excellent perspective: what will happen in ten years, when my current stuff will look like Pong, eh ?!

Technology is constantly and rapidly raises
