The Murder Of Denis Boronenkov. Chronicle of events

The media learned about a version of the “phantom state” of the pilot in the crash of Tu-154

The pilot of the Tu-154 in a minute after takeoff sent the plane into a nosedive because of the fact that was in the illusory condition, writes “Kommersant” with reference to the version involved in the investigation of the crash. This version, according to the newspaper, confirmed graphics of the pitch and roll of the aircraft

The pilot of the aircraft of the defense Ministry, Tu-154, having lost reference points on the earth after take-off, not guided by data instruments, and his own illusory sensations, the newspaper “Kommersant”.

According to a source close to the investigation of the crash, without exception, all aircraft systems “to the collision with water react to control actions of the crew in a timely and regular”. A minute after departing from the runway, the pilot suddenly sent the Tu-154 at the peak, instead of continuing the climb.

This behavior can be explained by the specifics of the night’s departure, the newspaper said. A few seconds after departing from well-lit to Adler and crossing also highlighted the coastline “once you get as if into a black hole,” explains Aviaexport. The pilot is “in the power of illusions” and may not correctly estimate the position of the aircraft in space. According to statistics, the loss of spatial orientation is the cause of every tenth of a disaster, says “Kommersant”.

That the pilot of the Tu-154 was in this illusory state, the graphics indicate pitch and roll of the aircraft in the last seconds of flight, the line charts have a “wobble” form, the newspaper said. The participants of the investigation suggest that the pilot was constantly changing the position of the aircraft due to the teams of his vestibular apparatus. Opponents of this version insist that the differences are related to the fact that the system of registration of parameters was faulty, according to the publication.

Previously, “Kommersant” wrote that the cause of the accident could become “strange behavior” of the pilot. After takeoff Tu-154 managed to gain a height of about 250 m and a speed of 360-370 km/h, after which the commander of the crew for some unknown reason, turned the aircraft mode to landing.


Schizophrenia learned to identify the tone of voice

Recently a new fashionable direction was antiagreganta medicine… voices. “Voice, like makeup, can not only age of a person, but to make him younger”, – assured the Vice-President of the Association by … and vonpeterhof, chief researcher of scientific clinical center of otorhinolaryngology of FMBA of Russia, Professor, Department of speech therapy, Moscow state pedagogical University Olga Orlova.


With age the voice changes. Moreover, people of different genders differently. So, if in the period of puberty in women, the voice becomes high, and men sits, in old age everything changed with the exact opposite — a voice of men is higher. Voice ages increase notes of anger and fear scratchiness, hoarseness.

Experts can distinguish at least a hundred characteristics of voice — melodic, heavy, nasal, harsh, squeaky, whiny, jerky, timid Voice… depends on the mood, age, physical and even mental health. Recent studies have shown that the tone of voice can determine the schizophrenia. Depends on the voice and of education — not coincidentally they say that mothers always loud born loud-mouthed children.

“A woman who seeks to marry, always speaks in a high voice. But as soon as she creates a family, the voice goes down, says our expert. – If you want to create the appearance of an experienced, knowledgeable, competent person, always talk with a low tone. This voice is more credible. And high says about hysteria. Teachers in the schools say in a high pitched, imitating the children.”

Some people we listen with pleasure, and the voice of the other causes irritation. “One who has a bad voice, a career will never do”, – said Professor Orlov. While professions in which voice is irrelevant, almost non-existent. “Even the cleaning lady — and she needs to atlatl with the expression,” – says Olga Orlova.

And yet there are professions that are more likely to encounter with various voice disorders. This — teachers, guides, Tutors of kindergartens. In General, the pathologies of the larynx suffer 10-30% of adults. The most common complaints associated with osiplosti, painful sore, soreness, dryness, fatigue. Violations voices arise due to stress, overstrain of ligaments, infection, dry air, Smoking, hypothermia, etc. to avoid complications, experts advise to comply with voice rest — that is, do not try to shout or, alternatively, to whisper — and then, and another requires serious effort. In addition, you should abandon the strong tea and coffee, alcoholic beverages, soda, citrus, crackers, nuts. And, of course, no Smoking. Voice useful warm drinks. It is also possible to poprinimat homeopathic medicines for the treatment of voice disorders — this is now in pharmacies.

Everyone’s voice is as individual as fingerprints; identical spectra simply does not exist. By the way, in ancient times in Italy information about the features of voice was even made in the passport (that’s the origin of the emergence of biometrics). But in recent years, the notion of feminization of the voice — there are special surgical techniques that change the tone. And, of course, there are special exercises allowing the voice to change.

How to improve your voice? Olga Orlova advised to monitor the posture — only a man with a straight back voice can be sure and deep. In addition, the sound should come out of your chest — exhale is better to do stomach.

The expert who predicted the death of Boronenkov: “I Think there will be a second series”

The head of the Center for the study of public applied problems (CIPP) Alexander Zhilin still 20 Feb predicted that fugitive ex-Deputy of the state Duma Denis Boronenkov and his wife could be killed.

What motivated the expert, when he wrote that “Voronenkov and Maksakova is a bull and heifer to the slaughter,” he told the “MK”.

Alexander Zhilin.

– I know well the work of the secret services of Britain and the United States – said Zhilin. – When I started to analyze the chain of events, we saw that this couple are very well motivated to leave the country. And not just to sit down on the train and left. And to effect escape. This is very important when preparing the sacred victim. And then the media starts their position as political opponents to the Russian President, the government, the regime, and so on.

It became obvious that in exchange for security guarantees they provoked in an increasingly tough statements against Russia. In the language of intelligence, it means “to feed the sacred victim”. To create the image of wrestlers threat to the Russian President. Next was the stuffing that Voronenkov supposedly has some secrets regarding Viktor Yanukovych. And finally, all plans were formed… But I honestly didn’t think it would happen so quickly. As political opposition, they have not pulled, so long their PR in this direction was pointless. You could get the opposite result. And then happened what happened.

Today, the network appeared the murder video Boronenkov. How do you assess it?

Guard from among the employees of the SBU goes, waving his purse. Then popping up some screw-head and begins to shoot. And if you look closely at the record, you will see that this home-grown killer has gone very quiet. He clearly gave a guarantee that he will remain alive. The question arises why the guard behaved? Yes, because he had a task not to protect, but to bring Boronenkov to the line of fire. Moreover, there was information with reference to one of the former Vice-Director of the SBU who shot, allegedly, from two trunks. Was also a so-called cleaner who backed up and controlled the situation.

And then everything went according to plan, killer be killed, to be exact – guard Boronenkov he was wounded and in the hospital he died. All according to the law of the genre.

– If it were, do you think, would leave Maksakova alive?

– Would have filled up both by far. In this case, was some kind of trick. Initially, Maria Maksakova was to be with her husband nearby, but then something happened, and one of the guards stayed with her. Maksakova was still alive and realized that the adjustment is very reasonable. Now to it one can not get, even Joseph Kobzon, Elena Drapeko, who I talked to today. Maria must be blocked. Yes, the man in the mountain, everything is clear. But I think that will be a second series. It now begins to use the background of the tragedy. It is very important when sacred victim dies, to give the appropriate picture. To remove it from the tomb of her husband, on the background of the cemetery. All of this terrible grief, but it will play out, and it will be forced to say nasty things about Russia and beyond. If she was there alone, she could have said no, and would they with her did not. But there’s a baby, and it is for women unbearable ordeal. No mother will not stand, when she will blackmail the child.

– Do you think it is possible to return Maria Maksakova in Russia?

– I’m afraid that the trap snapped, and soon it will not be released, and will continue to exploit anti-Russian, anti-Putin regime.

– Who are the puppeteers?

– I believe that started in a big company, and simply attack for the upcoming meeting of Putin and trump. Intelligence agencies and informants are very synchronously. There trump doing odious figure of the person with whom it is impossible to agree, and he doesn’t know what he’s doing. And now Putin will sculpt the President, whose “hands are stained in blood, and he eats babies at night”. I think that could pursue such a goal. Because I looked today, the headlines of the foreign media, they are very characteristic: “the Kremlin killers”, “Murderers from Moscow.” Russia has already appointed guilty. But the unthinkable and, when the President of Ukraine without trial, a verdict…

The Murder Of Denis Boronenkov. Chronicle of events

Klitschko ordered to prepare Kiev for Eurovision until may 1

As announced on 24 March, the Ukrainian media, the mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko has instructed Kyiv officials and employees of public utilities until may 1, “to prepare the capital of Ukraine to host the finals of the international song contest “Eurovision-2017″”. How, in principle, are preparing the capital of “Eurovision” to the execution of its missions, said the chief editor of “MK-Boulevard” Ilya LEGOSTAEV.

– I have invited the heads of various structures of the KCSA and community services to here to focus on the problems that each of them heard the tasks to be performed, and the timing – said the mayor of the Ukrainian edition.- If not fulfilled, will make appropriate personnel decisions!

What will perform Kiev officials?

In 2005, when Kiev hosted the Eurovision for the first time, everything was very clearly and solemnly: illuminations, fireworks, festivities and so much more, – says Ilya Legostaev. – The city was filled with a special, festive atmosphere, it is possible, however, then associated not so much with the “Eurovision-2005” as prevailed with the General rise, upbeat mood as residents of Kiev and guests.

Now times have changed. And in the current environment is not very clear how the festive atmosphere this time. However, there are things that will be made certainly, not expert doubts:

– First of all, I think that Kiev is sure to be installed any additional illumination. Second, in cities where this is an international competition, are usually installed panels with the symbols of “Eurovision”, provides places where you can buy different Souvenirs with her image. Third, usually takes a specially enclosed fan-area where the mounted large screens to what is happening in the competition can follow all those who didn’t get tickets. The practice of the competition is that its framework is not one, but three main events: the first semifinal; second semifinal and the final. And before each one in addition two more rehearsals, so that a total of nine events. And on each of them you can attend by buying a ticket.

There is no doubt that given the scale of what is happening, the city authorities and the organizers of the competition in Kiev, it is necessary to develop the greatest activity in preparation for the upcoming holiday. However, in any case, no doubt Legostaev, they “bring the entire navigation of the city in a digestible form and to comply with the recommendations of the organizers.”

Just do not forget: the scope of the preparatory work is directly connected with the amounts on them released. And each country is allocated its own budget, he recalls:

For example, in Stockholm modestly placed at $10 million But in Baku was organized on an unprecedented scale. The budget of the competition amounted to $60 million, and the funds in place of the old quarters specifically for the contest, built a Palace, ‘ve redone the waterfront and even bought a whole batch of British cabs-taxi. Last worked not only with participants, but also the entire city as a whole. But drivers have been specially prepared so that if necessary, they can assist the guests of the competition, knowing where everything is.

However, this flurry of activity is usually not for the whole city, and only some, though very few segments designated under competitive events of the competition. The main part of the next capital of “Eurovision” live their ordinary, everyday life. What is it in Kiev, guests of “Eurovision”, they soon will.

Nikita Presnyakov has explained the rejection of meat: “It’s not human”

A member of the star family Nikita Presnyakov, more recently, eating hamburgers for both cheeks, as it turned out, a few years ago to give up meat. About the reasons for your eating behavior singer, music video Director, actor and a grandson of Alla Pugacheva said right on the eve of the International day without meat. In turn, the “MK” asked the experts, what are the health risks of the young men carries a diet devoid of animal protein.

It all started a few years ago, when Nikita had placed in their accounts in social networks movie “Hamburger warts and all.” And now from the ranks of meat eaters he turned into a staunch vegetarian. More precisely, it happened 4 years ago is just still young by my food philosophy does not advertise.

As told to Nikita Presnyakov Center animal rights “Vita”, he is still no one “did not communicate much on this subject.” “We (the group Multiverse — Ed.) bass guitarist Ptashnik – vegan, novel Arsafes – vegetarian. We went once on the train to Gomel, in a compartment just drove Valdimir Ptashnik, which is just not plugging all the time talking about veganism. I Ptashnik and our cellist, we look at everything that shows us Ptashnik – documentary, programs about animals, as it is all on the back side is what they are going through, as it is not human…

It started more as a dispute. Ptashnik said, “Yes, you a week will not last!” As I ate, in fact, some hamburgers. For a week I realized that, first, it is not hard and, conversely, cool. I felt lighter. I started with Pskovelectrosvar… mostly I eat salads, beans, walnuts, sliderace, fruit, And couscous! Couscous is a favorite topic that I discovered. It can be different to cook. I’m not vegan, so I added back cheese, beans, interfered with everything I found, and got some delicious things,” said Presnyakov-younger.

In 2013, Nikita was able to smoothly transition to vegetarianism. During the four years of the diet of young people has changed dramatically. He notes that it was not absolutely conflict: “feel Awesome, it’s cool, you’re not doing anything bad, do not harm living beings and live without disturbing anyone for the benefit of myself and others.”

And Nikita began to think about ecology, the universe, good and evil: “I started to think about not only how to make food, but also about the world in General. That is, my head is filled with so… different, I guess, you realize this whole world where we live and a little bit scary”.

Presnyakov Jr., notes that his example became contagious — looking at him, many of his friends have also started to experiment with food. For example, his best friend gave up meat a year ago. And now his girlfriend, with whom he has been together for 4 years, gradually began to switch to vegetable food, “And not because I was there as a insisted. Because I put the idea on itself has developed.” Singer even suggests that in Europe and America, people are more friendly because there is a higher percentage of vegetarians.

“We would like to thank Nikita Presnyakov, Vladimir Ptashnik and other members of the team Multiverse for their beliefs, help animals be free from suffering and the planet is to switch to a more humane and non-violent level of life,” say animal welfare activists from “Vita”.

As explained “MK” leading researcher in the Clinic of FSBI “Institute of nutrition” Olga Grigoryan, to choose their own diet — the right of every person. “Nikita Presnyakov is an adult, he is entitled to that choice. Today’s youth are, in principle, is looking for dining options, it is now becoming fashionable. In General dietetics and nutritional science can not argue with that, but we still try to convince people that all is healthy and all we need. The set of amino acids is different everywhere, and animal proteins and fats we need.

In General, veganism is not a healthy diet. Although there are people who tolerate such a diet. Various studies at the time showed that some very serious health risks for adults, veganism is not responsible — because the metabolism and the metabolism they have normalized. Another thing — children and adolescents. They absolutely can not abandon of animal fats and proteins, and we insist on this. As for adults, if they adhere to such a diet, they need to very carefully monitor the health. Vegans are often prone to anemia (iron deficiency in the blood — Ed.); they are often diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency, which is almost impossible to only plant food. Anyway, they need to pass examinations often,” – said “MK” Olga Grigoryan.
