Bullying in schools - a social evil that everyone faced - either indifferently observing from the side, or viciously trampling on the weak, or trying to protect someone, or, sadly, being a victim. However, the further, the more people believe that this should not be - therefore in America anti-bullying in schools, universities, at work has recently become a serious social task. Lawyers, psychologists and politicians are trying to solve it - but ordinary people can also help. For example, Canadian schoolchildren gathered for flash mob against bullying.
January 27 in a Canadian city Vancouver, in the mall Oakridge Center, it was, as always, crowded and noisy - an ordinary day filled with shopping and the simple joys of life. True, many of those present looked around with some mischief, as if they were thinking of something. In fact, it was so. The most ordinary young people were waiting for a signal, and it was given by a girl who, dropping her jacket right on the floor, remained in pink t-shirt … And - she began to dance.
Alone, she did not dance for long. A few seconds later, another guy joined her, and then another - it went exponentially, until the number of dancers reached 300 … The high level of coherence, consistency and class of dance training can be easily explained if you pay attention to the characteristic Asian eyes of most mobbers. This is probably the face of today's Canadian high school.
It would seem, is it fashionable to surprise the world community, which has seen flash mobs, with a dance in pink T-shirts, albeit so beautifully performed? It is possible, if the idea embedded in it is so demanded by society. Mette hamaguchi, pupil David Lloyd George School, the mastermind and author of the flash mob, launched an action to protest against bullying, intimidation and discrimination. And pink T-shirts for a reason: it was a message against homophobia. With their dance, children drew attention to International Day against Bullying (I repeat, January 27).
It should be noted that they completed the task. The video seems to go viral and is quickly taking over the Internet; in particular, it was posted by the famous overseas blogger, rumor collector Perez Hilton … Many human rights defenders in America have expressed gratitude to schoolchildren for their act of citizenship (it's nice that not only grandmothers can express this). And we, in a distant snow-covered country, should also take a closer look around and prevent bullying and intimidation - even if not going to flash mobs for this.
Rogvolodovich, not Rurikovich: Why Prince Yaroslav the Wise did not love the Slavs and did not spare his brothers
In the official historiography, Yaroslav the Wise for a long time appeared to be an almost sinless ruler, the creator of legality in the Russian lands. In our time, he is already accused of sending several of his brothers to the next world in order to occupy the Kiev throne. But was it only the desire for power that drove Prince Yaroslav? If you look at the history of his family, then everything that happens is more like revenge … to his father. Bloody revenge for bloody atrocity
Aivazovsky is not only the sea, and Levitan is not only landscapes: We destroy stereotypes about the work of classical artists
Often the names of Russian artists are associated with genres that have been their creative roles throughout their career. It was in these genres that they became the unsurpassed aces of artistic excellence. So, for the majority of viewers - if Levitan, then, by all means, - landscape lyrics of central Russia, if Aivazovsky is a mesmerizing sea element of the Black Sea, and Kustodiev is not at all conceivable outside of a bright festive popular print. But, today we will destroy the prevailing stereotypes and pleasantly surprise

She was bright and talented, and on the screen she often embodied the images of strong women. Nonna Mordyukova herself seemed the same as her heroine.

Nonna Mordyukova desperately wanted to be happy, but for some reason all the time she became hostage to her own ideas about male strength and beauty
The pillow fight is an amazing alternative to fist fighting that we fell in love with in our early childhood. Instead of bruises, pillows leave feathers, and instead of offenses, laughter and joy. Multiply these feelings several thousand times - after all, adults fight pillows in a massive and organized manner
