You know, I don't either. Here a lot of black drug dealers buy pitbulls, cause they come handy when they fight their gang wars, etc. But also -not in the middle class areas, but in the East End in the working class areas some white working class people buy them and they organize fights between them on the commons at night (commons — small local parks). It is disgusting. There are some things about the working class here that are truly disgusting to be honest — things they do, etc.

Laikas and Huskys look similar, but there are some differences.

Btw, I had West Siberian Laika, but always wanted to have Karelo-Finnish Laika. They are smaller and they are very cute

That is a shame. You know — about the competition. Competition is great only if it is fair — like they say in England — the concept of fair play, but amongst us human beings it is not that great sometimes, we all lack that concept. Be it sports, office, politics or whatever — so many people easily do things that are underhand, dishonest, there is bullying, etc. You know my husband's first degree was in Molecular Biology. He studied a lot of Biology. And he thinks that the human kind ultimately are like chimpanzees- we do the same horrible things to one another all the time. He works in a very competitive environment and he says he sees it all the time without being able to do anything about it. He thinks the answer lies in science, technology, genome modification, etc — he says the evolution is not or rather shouldn't be all down to chance, there has to be an improvement.

Yes, if Huskys look very much alike wolves, Karelo-Finnish laika looks more like a fox

Actually, it was like that in «good old days», but sometimes new rules are implied not to make figure skating better, but to make judges work easier. For example, in nowadays even in the free skate program (which is by definition should give skaters more freedom to express themselves) skaters are obliged to do certain steps, turns etc. That is why step sequences skates do look pretty much the same. Of course it is more easy for the judges, but I don't think these limitations somehow improve figure skating.
Most amazing step sequence I ever saw was at 2002 Olympics by Alexei Yagudin in his iconic program called «winter». Here it is.

Unfortunately, step sequences like that are impossible in modern figure skating.

Redhead (Expat), I've lost our previous discussion on music. I suppose nevertheless that it would be better not to mention topics abandoned so long ago.

OK, I will try to explain. I am afraid though that my view can be a bit superficial.

Last polls tell that there are top 5 candidates so I will describe briefly their story. First is Yulia Tymoshenko. I suppose that you've heard of her because she was prime minister twice, especially because she was ruling Cabinet during the gas crisis and signed gas treaties with Russia. Tried to make a 'wide coalition' with Yanukovich's party (in Ukraine people call it 'ширка'), in other words she tried to usurp power with him. Now she is presenting some nonsense called 'New Course' (yeah, like Roosevelt's) made of 'IT printers', 'Linox systems' and some clever quotes from Wikipedia.

Petro Poroshenko is our acting president. On his account are still existing corruption, Ilovaysk and Debaltseve, failed reforms. Now he is stealing our ultra-nationalists rhetoric and can't stop talking about 'Army, language, religion' (first of which is disaster, second and third are only half success) and 'безвіз'.

Zelenskyi is a comedian. He managed concerts for the most of Ukrainian politicians including Yanukovich. He is ready to 'fall down on his knees' before Putin or, as he saying, 'begin conversation with Russian side/separatists/devil' (sic!). I suppose that he is just some sort of revenge of the channel owner, who was giving him an ability to run his show, oligarch Kolomoyskyi who is resentful with Poroshenko because of nationalised Privat24 bank.

Boyko is an ex-regional. He supports direct negotiations with the Russians, restoring economic ties with them, autonomy for Donetsk and Luhansk thugs from LDNR etc. Nothing to discuss.

Hrytzenko was a Defence minister during Yushchenko's presidency. He hasn't yet taken a part in corruption scandals and wasn't suspected of it (except some dim affairs with misappropriation of military vehicles). But he is very pale candidate (Iezuit tells that he is just a shadow of his wife) and doesn't have some clear and strong program. It's told that he is the main candidate from 'democratic opposition'. Though without Lviv mayor Sadovyi's support, another 'democratic' candidate trying to proceed in parliament, he has no chance to get in the second tour where lies his real opportunity to win.

Redhead (Expat), Some music for you.
I liked the music here, though I loathe the clip (except that cool dwarf).

I was amazed to know that it is a Ukrainian band.
Some nice French songs.


I liked much this music style.

This performance by Alexey is absolutely amazing. He reminded me of Rudolph Nuriev a little bit. You know — with ballet, figure skating, etc. — there are so many great girl performers that one forgets what men are capable of. You know, in ballet — it was Nureyev who brought the concept of male dance in ballet, prior to him a man was just «support» for female dancers. He was absolutely amazing. I remember you mentioned Billy Elliot — it was a true story and the boy who it was about - was inspired by Nureyev apparently — there was a programme about him here. Billy Elliot essentially was a film combating the negative stereotype of a male ballet dancer. Nureyev did pretty much the same, he blew everyone's socks off when he arrived on the scene here

Thank you very much for the explanation. Of course I heard of Timoshenko, Poroshenko, etc. But the good news is — there are some new characters on the scene and to be honest — what is good to see is the progress in terms of political fight and debate. Ukraine in that sense resembles Britain more than Russia and it is good news. In Russia they are scared and absolutely petrified of any opposition, they can not accept that concept and react like Chihua hua dogs if you talk about any opposition — period. What is nice to see — at least in Ukraine the mentality is changing, there is more healthy debate, critical attitude to things, etc. In Russia it is unfortunately all about praising the leaders, etc. Ukraine is getting to become a much healthier society. When is the election taking place?

Why are they impossible? His programme is one of the most amazing things I have seen in my life and on a par with «Angel» by Kostornaya, if not of a higher class. This is the kind of thing that takes one's breath away.

Many fans think that Yagin's «winter» is the best short program ever. I watched it hundred times since 2002. It really makes me sad that we hardly see programs like that in the future.
Yagudin like step sequences are impossible nowadays because they are standardised to make judging easier. One should do certain amount of particular steps and turns to get max points. Skaters and choreographers are trying hard to make step sequences look unique and special but they are limited by the rules.
That is why figure skating fans pray every summer that ISU won't apply another stupid rule which can make figure skating less interesting to watch.
