Internet Expedition

Sedov name was called and the name of the ship – remember, for example, the heroic, which lasted 812 days of drift ice-breaking ship "Georgiy Sedov", which crossed the Arctic Ocean. Dozens of books and hundreds of articles devoted to the life and work of George Yakovlevich Sedov. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Eva Andersson-Dubin, New York City. It is quite legitimate and what historians and again discuss the minute details of his latest expedition, heroic and tragic at the same time. So what's all the same – 'deed' or 'mad attempt'? With hindsight, knowing already what ended the expedition, it is difficult to answer this question. Is not 'insane attempt to' look voyage to Earth Franz Josef with a reserve of coal in two days? But they got! And with good reason Sedov wrote: "Our expedition accomplished a feat." Everyone, perhaps, a man ponders the question: what is heroism? And each, perhaps, give his reply.

But we can answer it: the hero – an honest execution of debt commitments. Not all and not always find the strength to do so. Therefore called a feat that for most people it seems impossible, and sometimes insane 'Madness of the brave we sing a song ' Sing because only the courage gives birth to courage. Cowardly caution barren '. On the Internet, tens of thousands of sites containing information about the expedition gy Sedov, about himself.

And it is not officialdom, but most of the materials caused by people's interest in the history of the expedition to the identity of its organizer. And at the same time is difficult or almost impossible to find materials on the all-powerful in sedovskoe time personalities: the sea Minister Grigorovich, the notorious editor of 'New Era' ma Suvorina (I could not even find his photo), head of the Admiralty, me (his niece happens to be a part of another Russian Arctic expedition of 1912 under the leadership of Lt. gl Brusilov on the ship 'St.

The Unpresentable Willy Toledo

As you know, Willy (Guillermo) Toledo is actor, not bad, exactly. In the interludes, instead of playing bocce or monopoly, like others, is dedicated to political activism. The last time this has led him to the Sahara, with 16 other compatriots, to armar it to the occupying that territory Moroccan regime. Apparently, and according to his testimony, the police of Mohamed VI has zurrado them the padding although, fortunately, without leaving them lying in any gloomy Dungeon. What less I could pass knowing how those rides the sultan! The good thing about the case, is the actor of yore who blames the Spanish Government, for not having sent a pair of F-16s to seek them. The milk! It is that while the State saves up in poor retirees pensions and reduced salary to staff members would have had to spend a paston to account of revolutionary tourism of Mr Toledo and his buddies. And that they go progres, boasting of egalitarianism and other gargle. Clear that, accustomed to living in the public subsidies, main source of income in the world of show business in this country, fly in a very expensive hunting a trifle must seem supersonic.

We have lost the papers. Not only because you have to rescue our taxes to reckless climbers of the Anapurna or tourists lost in the desert, but because the Government often pay substantial rescues Somali pirates or those who kidnap reckless aid workers who go on to fraternise with their captors. In other words, that the State fix us everything, even caused by our audacity, folly or carelessness. The good thing about the case is that Mr Toledo starred recently a closed defense of Cuba’s regime, justifying that the Castro dictatorship left to die in his hunger strike the dissident Orlando Zapata, delinquent, according to our actor. I’d like Willy Toledo was consistent with itself and its alleged solidary causes going to the Caribbean island to visit political prisoners of that regime and set a public show demanding the freedom of all detainees by crimes of opinion. After the police reaction therefore, secure that jokingly minus the attitude of the Moroccan authorities. In addition, it could not ask the arrival of F-16 to take it back home because of Cuban prisons not quits as well. Of course that never would do this to our actor because, in addition to sectarian, which is it, and what does not seem much, it be idiotic. Original author and source of the article.
