Canadiens: Looking Back at the 2017 Trade Deadline Acquisitions

The 2016-17 season was an interesting one for the Montreal Canadiens.

From Snow to Shining Snow – Russia Beyond Moscow

Russia is the world’s largest country, but most visitors confine themselves to a tiny portion of it: Moscow and St. Petersburg. While both of those cities are absolutely worth a trip, or several, they do give off the impression that Russian history is a story of all-powerful tsars, leaving only hazy images of the taiga (snow forest biome) and quaint peasant life from landscapes in art museums and folk shows in “traditional” restaurants. The truth is, Russia is far more diverse than most peop...

On October 20, 1986 the pilot of the Tupolev Tu-134A bet his co-pilot that he could land the plane blind. He would draw the curtains on the cockpit windows and make an instrument-only approach.

Selfie-Takers Accidentally Damage Goya And Dalí Works In Russia

In a slightly different twist on the usual heedless-selfiers-wreck-priceless-art tale, a group of four girls at an exhibition in Yekaterinburg gathered for a snap on one side of a temporary wall — and on the other side were hanging Goya’s Bravissimo! etching from Los Caprichos and Dalí’s riff on said etching. The girls knocked the wall over; it landed on top of the artworks and barely missed another museumgoer. (includes video)

About 100,000 Russian Orthodox pilgrims made the trek to Yekaterinburg where Tsar Nikolai II and his family were murdered by a Bolshevik execution squad a century ago today.
