A high dietary calcium intake combined with vitamin D can increase bone density and reduce fractures in older women and, probably, men. The Institute of Medicine recommends that persons 19 to 50 years of age consume 1,000 mg per day of calcium and that persons older than 50 years consume 1,200 mg per day. The average American consumes less than 800 mg of calcium per day. Medical Letter consultants reviewed the efficacy and safety of current calcium supplements (see the accompanying table).

Calcium supplements are derivatives of natural products, such as oyster shell or bone. Some are marketed primarily as antacids. Calcium carbonate and phosphate preparations have the highest concentration of elemental calcium, about 40 percent. Calcium citrate contains 21 percent elemental calcium, and calcium lactate and gluconate contain 13 and 9 percent, respectively. A recent meta-analysis found that absorption of calcium citrate was 27 percent higher than that of calcium carbonate when taken on an empty stomach and 22 percent higher when taken with meals. It did not make a difference which preparation of calcium was taken or in which dosage.

Taking calcium with food in dosages of 500 mg or less increases absorption. Calcium preparations must be dissolved before they can be absorbed; the absorption rate for calcium is about 20 to 30 percent. The absorption of calcium supplements differs by preparation. Foods such as spinach, rhubarb and wheat bran can decrease calcium absorption. Calcium can interfere with absorption of iron, zinc, bisphosphonates and tetracycline. Absorption also requires adequate doses of vitamin D. The recommended daily intake of vitamin D is 200 IU for adults younger than 50 years and 600 IU for those older than 70 years. Vitamin D supplementation is especially important in elderly persons because skin synthesis and absorption of vitamin D may be impaired.

In postmenopausal women with low dietary calcium intake, specially prepared 500-mg tablets of calcium citrate malate were more effective in preventing bone loss than 500-mg tablets of calcium carbonate, although the difference was not significant. In another study, 500 mg of calcium citrate taken with breakfast produced serum calcium levels significantly higher than those demonstrated after 500 mg of calcium carbonate.

The most common adverse effects of calcium supplements are constipation, intestinal bloating and excess gas. Adverse effects occur most frequently with calcium carbonate. Switching preparations or increasing fluid intake may relieve symptoms. Patients who form calcium-containing stones are generally advised not to take calcium supplements. However, a low intake of calcium can aggravate the risk of stone formation by increasing absorption and urinary excretion of oxalate. High calcium intakes can increase stone formation in patients with absorptive hypercalciuria. Those with renal hypercalciuria may experience increased bone loss if calcium intake is too low.

Medical Letter consultants reiterate the need for adequate calcium supplementation in all persons, regardless of age or sex. Calcium carbonate may cause more adverse events. Calcium citrate may be better absorbed than the other calcium salts. The consultants conclude that any calcium supplement taken in dosages of 500 mg or less with meals may improve absorption.

Choosing a calcium supplement – Harvard Health

What you should know about taking calcium to boost your nutrients

Experts agree that the ideal way to get the nutrients you need to stay healthy is from food. But when it comes to taking calcium, some people may not find it practical or possible to meet the recommended daily intake (RDI) from diet alone. For adults, the RDI is 1,000 milligrams (mg) daily, which rises to 1,200 mg per day for women over age 50 and men over age 70.

If your doctor advises you to take a calcium supplement, how do you choose among the dizzying array of available choices, which include pills, chewable tablets, flavored chews, and liquids? The following information may help you decide.

What form of calcium?

The calcium in supplements is found in combination with another substance, typically carbonate or citrate. Each has benefits and downsides. Calcium carbonate supplements tends to be the best value, because they contain the highest amount of elemental calcium (about 40% by weight). Because calcium carbonate requires stomach acid for absorption, it’s best to take this product with food. Most people tolerate calcium carbonate well, but some people complain of mild constipation or feeling bloated. Some well-known calcium carbonate products include Caltrate, Viactiv Calcium Chews, Os-Cal, and Tums.

Calcium citrate supplements are absorbed more easily than calcium carbonate. They can be taken on an empty stomach and are more readily absorbed by people who take acid-reducing heartburn medications. But because calcium citrate is only 21% calcium, you may need to take more tablets to get your daily requirement. Calcium citrate products include Citracal and GNC Calcimate Plus 800.

How much calcium per serving?

Reading the labels with an eye toward cost and convenience may help you sift through your options. Check the serving size and the “% Daily Value” for calcium and multiply the percentage by 10 to find out how much elemental calcium the product contains. For example, if the label says a serving of the product contains 40% of the Daily Value, it has 400 mg of elemental calcium.

While products that yield a high amount of calcium may seem to be the best bet at first blush, they may not serve you best. Because your body has difficulty absorbing more than 500 mg of calcium at a time, more of the mineral may go to waste. So, while you may think that you’ve met your daily requirements by taking that 1,000-mg calcium pill, you may actually be only halfway to your target. Calculate your cost per serving based on how many tablets or chews the package contains, and consider whether you might find it inconvenient to take several tablets a day.

Here are some final tips for choosing and taking calcium supplements as found in the Harvard Special Health Report Osteoporosis: A guide to prevention and treatment:

  • Avoid products made from unrefined oyster shell, bone meal, dolomite, or coral, as they may contain lead or other toxic metals.
  • Don’t exceed the daily dose recommended by the manufacturer—doing so increases the risk for side effects.
  • If you take iron or zinc supplements, tetracycline antibiotics, or levothyroxine (used to treat hypothyroidism), take them several hours before or after takingcalcium to avoid potential negative interactions.
  • Make sure you’re also getting enough vitamin D, which helps your body absorb calcium. If you aren’t getting enough from sunlight, your diet, or your multivitamin, you may want to choose a calcium supplement that contains vitamin D.

Calcium, magnesium and vitamin-D are the macro nutrients for bone. Calcium is used as a pharmacological agent in humans almost entirely to remedy deficiency. Adequate calcium in the blood is so vital to a wide variety of bodily functions that our internal biochemistry will not tolerate a deficiency even for short periods. Clinical evidence suggests that calcium is useful for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and associated fractures. Vitamin-D is also essential for healthy bones as it aids in calcium absorption from the GI tract. In addition to this it stimulates bone formation. Clinical studies show that calcium and vitamin-D has synergistic effects on bone growth as well as in osteoporosis and fracture prevention. Magnesium also increases bone strength and rigidity. Some micro nutrients like copper, manganese, zinc and boron also play important role in bone health.

90,000 As expected, foxes and magpies that came to the North began to oppress the Arctic fauna Yamal. Current news Yamal

This year, scientists from the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences are celebrating their little anniversary. For 10 years they have been observing the predators of the Baidaratskaya tundra. Today it is one of the most objective methods for studying natural processes occurring in this part of the Arctic.

From the bait – the deer’s head – only a bone remained.All the meat was carefully scraped out by sharp teeth. Scientists immediately identify a hungry guest – this is a wolverine. She tried to pull the battery off the camera as well, but threw it along the way.

The cunning predator also visited other feeders, and she killed one of the cameras to death. There are 9 of them in total. From Erkuta, every 5 kilometers, up to Baydaratskaya Bay. Each cycle of seasonal monitoring provides tens of thousands of images and valuable scientific facts.

By the way, the wolverine did not appear on the footage of a month ago, but other predators “shone” with might and main.

“For the first time in 10 years we have filmed more than one species of predators on cameras, that is, they have ceased to be afraid of each other and, unfortunately, these are the predators that we least expect here, and which oppress the Arctic fauna – these are the fox and the magpie” , – says Alexander Sokolov, Deputy Director of the Arctic Research Station IERiZh UB RAS.

And exactly a week ago, the fox appeared on the farthest camera – at Cape Rock.The redhead had never gone so far to the North before. There are no explanations for this yet.

In the new winter expedition, the Yamal scientists are for the first time accompanied by colleagues from France.

“We came here because we want to start an experiment with cameras in Greenland, to design this study, the Yamal experience helps us. We are glad that we came here, because in Greenland we are not able to work in the winter due to the lack of logistics, ” – explained Olivier Gilg, a scientist from the University of Burgundy, France.

This year’s research promises to be even more accurate. Yerkut has its own weather station. The nearest one before that was located 150 kilometers in any direction. During the next expedition, scientists promise to return to the mystery of last year. They will again drive along the northernmost railway, under the bridges of which, by some quirk of nature, the Red Book Gyrfalcon are raising their chicks.

Last year, Yamal scientists examined 45 bridges up to the Kara Sea, on 5 of them they found living nests of the gyrfalcon.Cases when these birds of prey settled on man-made structures were known before, but it was always something deserted and abandoned. Perhaps the Yamal gyrfalcones were the first in the world to choose existing facilities as their home.

Clinical observation of a patient with Guillain-Barré syndrome after vaccination against COVID-19

1) Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education “Russian National Research Medical University. N.I. Pirogov “Ministry of Health of Russia, Moscow;
2) JSC “Medicine”, g.Moscow

Abstract. Vaccination is currently the most effective method of preventing the spread of highly contagious COVID-19 infection and its complications, which has been widely used in recent months around the world. The article presents a clinical observation of a 47-year-old patient with the development of clinically confirmed Guillain-Barré syndrome 18 days after the administration of the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19. On the example of the considered clinical case, the issues of the safety of vaccination against COVID-19 and the identification of patients at risk of developing side effects are discussed.

To date, there are numerous literature data that vaccination is the most effective method for preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection and associated complications [1–4]. Below is a clinical case of Guillain – Barré syndrome in a young patient after administration of the Sputnik V vaccine. This is one of the first observations of a patient with the development of serious neurological complications after vaccination against COVID-19.

With the onset of 2021, the coronavirus pandemic, contrary to the expectations of optimists, has not receded and continues to keep governments, doctors, scientists and ordinary citizens around the world in suspense.

The measures taken by the authorities of different countries in an attempt to prevent the collapse of health systems differ in their severity and effectiveness, but in general, the crisis has affected the vast majority of people. Fear and ignorance, lack of confidence in the future against the backdrop of growing economic problems and gloomy statistics on the incidence of COVID infection – this is just a short list of challenges faced by the population of many countries.

Putin’s Russia is trying to exploit these fears to achieve its own geopolitical goals. Acting along the lines of its previous hybrid operations, Moscow is carefully studying the existing weaknesses of its potential victims and is channeling colossal funds and battle-hardened propaganda army to take control of these weak links, cultivate in target audiences a sense of distrust of the actions of its own authorities and wreak havoc. within their countries.

To date, the Kremlin propagandists have achieved the greatest success in promoting the Russian Sputnik V vaccine. Completely hushing up the statistics of their victims and deaths from coronavirus after the use of this vaccine, but in every possible way focusing attention on the victims from vaccines produced in other countries, acting where propaganda, where by bribery, information scandals and terror against all those who doubt the quality of the Russian vaccine, the Russian Federation managed to create Sputnik V the image of the “safest” and “effective” vaccine of all currently existing.

From the very beginning of the process of developing vaccines against coronavirus by the world’s giants, it was very clear that the Kremlin is entering this game with specific goals – and among them, concern for public health far beyond the top three.

It was also very clear that the Kremlin would not play by the rules, which certainly gives the Russian Federation a number of advantages – as in all bridgeheads of a hybrid war.

Not passed all phases of clinical testing? Not a problem! After all, you can simply say that Russia was the first to invent a vaccine against coronavirus – Sputnik V.Are Western Experts Fitting With Research Results? No question, because you can send a set of “verified data”, confirmed by the “most authoritative Russian experts”, in which, as a result, there are atypical statistical anomalies hinting at possible falsifications (after the most shameful story with the doping pyramid of Russian Olympic functionaries, attention to such assumptions became West even more intent).

When the pharma heavyweights – Pfizer / BionTech, AstraZeneca, Moderna – appeared on the market, Russians switched from exclusively praising Sputnik to a targeted campaign to discredit Western competitors.This is how the fake horror stories about mass deaths from the Pfizer vaccine in Norway, about the “horrific” statistics of thrombosis in patients around the world who received a dose of AstraZeneca, about degenerative diseases allegedly caused by the Moderna vaccine …

The US recently identified at least four Internet resources from which Russians – in different languages ​​- bombarded international audiences with false messages about the deadly threats of these vaccines. At the same time, Sputnik V was presented as the only effective alternative, from which no side effects were detected, there are no cases of re-infection with coronavirus, and even more so there is not a single death after vaccination with it.

Of course, there are many more such sites, and Moscow does not intend to stop in the near future on the path of glorifying its vaccine and compromising its competitors.

Carrying out such work on all continents, Russia either relies on long-standing friendships – for example, in African countries or in Italy, which last year Russian doctors (for some reason the military) vowed to save from illness, but apparently somehow did not grow together. Russia is right there when it feels that besides desperate attempts to get a vaccine for its own population, officials are not averse to warm their hands (hello Argentina!)

But in Slovakia, lobbyists for the Russian vaccine in the highest echelons of power got on their heads with a political crisis – when the Minister of Foreign Affairs openly spoke out against the Prime Minister, who carried out an allegedly almost secret operation and negotiated Sputnik supplies behind his colleagues’ backs.In this situation, the Minister of Health simply washed his hands and wisely resigned …

In a word – where Sputnik V is, there are problems.

By the way, despite all the loud statements from Moscow about the success of the Russian vaccine and the “incredible interest” shown to Sputnik around the world, the Russians themselves are in no hurry to vaccinate them. Only about 5 percent of the population has received their dose to date. In addition, it is important to note that the authorities are also in no hurry to advertise the vaccine among their own citizens.It is paradoxical, but true: trying to enter international markets and offering Sputnik to foreign clients, Russia simply does not have enough production capacity to satisfy even domestic demand.

It is difficult to say what the Kremlin is counting on, convincing foreign governments that the volumes and timing of deliveries are guaranteed … Paraguay, Argentina and Myanmar, by the way, have already burned themselves on such assurances. The delivery time has already been disrupted there.

But the most disgusting thing about this story is that the Russian authorities, as it turned out, are looking for opportunities to secretly purchase lots of Pfizer vaccine, continuing to hypocrite on their information platforms about the indispensability of Sputnik V.Apparently, there is no need to remind that Vladimir Putin, perfectly aware of the true “quality” of the Russian vaccine and the fact that in fact it cannot compete remotely with the same Pfizer in quality, flatly refused to be vaccinated with Sputnik. Russian officials also, apparently, are not particularly eager to inject themselves with something incomprehensible. Recently, State Duma Speaker V. Volodin actually confirmed this trend, saying that only 22 percent of the deputies had been vaccinated. So, it is easy to guess who exactly is intended for the Pfizer party, which Russia so wants to get, trying to organize the supply in the strictest secrecy, negotiating through its intelligence agents under the guise of diplomatic missions abroad.

In the post-Soviet space, the situation with the promotion of Sputnik V remains ambiguous.

In Ukraine, attempts to lobby for Sputnik V fail completely due to the toxicity of the figure of the main lobbyist – Putin’s godfather Viktor Medvedchuk, who was recently hit by a package of sanctions and who completely fell out of the information field after the blocking of the pool of his TV channels.

In Moldova, along with the AstraZeneca vaccine provided by Romania and the COVAX platform, as well as BionTech / Pfizer, the National Medicines Agency also registered Sputnik V.One can only guess what methods were used for this by the socialists who still control the Moldovan government, who slavishly worship everything that comes from the Russian Federation. Nevertheless, the incident caused a scandal in the Parliament of Moldova and, under pressure from pro-Western politicians, the distribution of the Russian vaccine was stopped. A. Nemerenko, health advisor to President Maia Sandu, commenting on this situation, said on Facebook that Sputnik V would be sold only in private clinics and vaccinated only for money.She also noted a wave of fake messages in some media and Telegram channels about the allegedly low quality of vaccines transferred by Romania.

It is obvious that Russia will fiercely fight for the Moldovan market and by hook or by crook, including using sharp contradictions in the policy of Moldova, continuing to lobby for its vaccine, although even I. Dodon, when he was President, said that it might not arrive until the end April, because there is a queue. That is, the residents of Moldova were asked, at the height of the pandemic, to wait several months (!!!) before the receipt of the Russian vaccine.Dodon clearly hoped to launch Western vaccines on the Moldovan market only after the arrival of the Russian one, regardless of the new surge in coronavirus diseases and hundreds of new deaths from this dangerous disease. But he lost the election and his plan fell through.

It remains for the authorities, experts, doctors and ordinary citizens to draw balanced conclusions and not succumb to the tricks and manipulations of the Kremlin. Indeed, looking closely at the supposedly “saving” ampoule with Sputnik V, you can only see a bear grin…

Read “Rudagand (SI)” – “El’Rau” – Page 32

The living threads themselves reproduced the required number of nats. It was only necessary to develop them themselves. The stagnation phase made it clear that it doesn’t matter how high the rank of the rudagandha is. The quality of pumping skills at each individual level is important.

Out of boredom, Ripper invested in the development of the abandoned skill of the second rank “Gloomy grin”. It would seem nonsense, because its more advanced analogue “Dark Roar” appeared in the development map of the Rudagandha in the branch available from the fourth rank.But …

Both skills have the same trigger mechanism and the main task is to cause a numb fear in the enemy in order to immobilize for a while. The only difference is in the strength of the impact. However, when Grim Grin reached the pumping limit, there was a sudden jump in parameters. The skill has changed, becoming an elite skill of the third rank, which is in no way inferior to “Dark Roar”.

Among other things, “Grim grin” has side effects. For a few seconds, Borgest received an invigorating boost.And the enemy, for the same time, seemed to sink into despondency and melancholy. The reluctance to live was almost physically felt, one had only to notice the effect on one or another Rudagandha monster. And this seemed to Ripper very strange, because the puppets, which they were considered to be, could not experience emotions.

It was believed that the alien boulders are just an obedient tool, nothing more. However, now everything seemed different to Ripper. He felt a pulsating living vein in every, even the smallest cobblestone. With his mind, he tried to sort everything out on the shelves, tried to limit new knowledge to the existing logic.It turned out badly. The more he tried, the less he understood.

– May my loneliness be like an ocean. I cannot draw it out and drink it. I look into it and feel a flaw that cannot be measured by any element. Feelings are full of themselves, because fear is not known that way, – Ripper hesitated, forgetting the next line. – My desires are like the wind on my lips, or like the salt of unshed tears. There is no good in them, only water. Mental thrashing is not serious. And all that remains to me is the darkness of emptiness. His cold embrace. And you can shout, but the lips are silent.Indulging death by conception …

Rudagandha threads soared around Ripper, forming the body of Borgest. Just a few moments, and now the darkness habitually embraced him from all sides. The guy relaxed. Consciousness calmed down, fully synchronized with the alien colossus. Now he felt the world through Borgest, he was as much as the thread-hard connection would allow. And so every day!

When, six months later, the “disciples” entrusted to Protea were able to transform their monsters, Mr. Karn decided to hold a general meeting-seminar.Ripper was also told to appear. As expected, the event turned out to be boring, because its main task was to brainwash the children. An inspiring speech by the head of the training center, a speech by the head of doctors and a demonstration lecture by Protea on the topic of pumping “dragon” skills – everything came together in one slogan: “you are the chosen one and therefore you must …”. And what he owes and to whom, and most importantly, why and why – a particular, which was carefully pushed into the shadows.

The worst thing about this seminar was that in the final the word was given to Ripper.Judging by Mr. Karn’s gaze, the man was hoping for another inspiring example. The guy really wanted to disappoint him to the very depths of his soul. But it seemed unfair to Ripper to send Protea’s efforts to the bottom of the company. He glanced at the absurd girl and noticed how she had changed since the time she worked on Yasher. And it was not so much about appearance as about character. Undoubtedly, she was benefited by the opportunity to teach, guide, take care of students, patronize them.But there was also something that remained unchanged.

“You are a great smart girl. Versatile. You quickly grasp any innovation. You come across so much with ease. And still, for some reason, you consider yourself inferior, flawed, – Ripper, as before, wondered why Protea tries to imitate everything and adapts to those who are not worth her little finger. – When will you mature enough to love yourself and believe in yourself?

“Dragon’s head”, as Proteus was sometimes called by others, suffered from a complex of contrived inferiority.And for some reason, she always looked at Ripper with hostility, as if he owed her and did not even remember how much. So, he did not begin to destroy the castles of the air of Mr. Karn and nullify the efforts of triad pilots.

– That’s right. I have almost nothing to add. Unless … – Ripper scratched his chin, thinking about what to say next, what else can be helped to the “disciples” of the followers of the “dragon head”.

– Protea, for a reason, suggests not to get hung up on pumping your levels of skills.You yourself noticed that the skills at the third and fourth ranks are similar to those that you now have at the second. It turns out that there is no need to pump the existing abilities to the limit. All the same, they cannot be compared with the same ones, but of a higher rank. She is right in saying that for now, you just need the skills to master the basic functions. Learn to use them, understand the principle of action, feel at the nato level what is happening and how. What for? – Ripper silently looked at Proteus. Then he nodded, as if he had received permission for further explanation.

– At the fourth rank, all of you will begin the “stagnation” phase. This is a very important and difficult cultivation period. It is needed to move to the fifth rank. Take a look at the Rudagandha development map. From the fifth rank to the tenth there are practically no new skills. It is not a glitch or a lack of access. In the “stagnation” phase, you will have the opportunity to pump all your skills to the limit. Then you will notice that the skills of the second level at their limit point receive an additional ability and improve to the third advanced rank.Also with the initial skills of the third and fourth levels. You will not be able to pump them right away. Therefore, wait for the “stagnation” phase. When cultivation reaches a special level.

– It turns out that the skills of the fifth level are pumped skills from the fourth? Then the second and third can also be upgraded to the fifth? – the disciples of Proteus immediately perked up.

– No, – in one fell swoop he dispelled the bright hopes of the guys. – Improved skills with a plus rank cannot be improved, no matter how many nats you would spend on them.

– Then why are they needed? Only the skills of the fourth rank to pump to the limit and that’s it!

– Hey, stop! But if it is possible to improve the skill only once, then it turns out that the skill cannot be raised above the fifth rank.

There was a din in the hall. Protea tried to raise her voice and calm everyone, but no one listened to her.

– It’s not like that! – Ripper shouted loudly and slammed the counter to heighten the effect. – Starting at rank 5, the cultivation conditions change a lot. For example, you can combine similar skills of different ranks.Thus, getting a new skill. This ability will become available during the “zealous” phase. Having advanced beyond the fifth rank, you will be able to combine even dissimilar skills. It’s too early for you to know what will happen next. To begin with, go to the sixth or even seventh rank.

– Soon certification, – it seems Protea has finally found what to say and how to lead the conversation into a neutral channel. – All of you have to prepare for friendly sparring.

– Will Volum and Borgest also fight? – came the expected question from the audience.

– No. Our task is to control the course of the battle as special observers. ”Protea put on a smile that seemed to Ripper a deceitful fox grin.

Two months remained before certification. In fact, Ripper disagreed with Proteus. He believed that it was worth initially pumping skills to the limit, and only then moving to the next rank and already on it to distribute the accumulated nats into new skills. So the transitions between levels will take a little longer, but the effectiveness of the rudagand at each rank will become maximum.However, Ripper decided not to share his thoughts with anyone yet. In the end, he did not develop friendly relations with any of those present, rather the opposite.

Side effects of the struggle of worldviews – inner fight club “millennium” – LiveJournal

The war in Syria, in which (as every civil activist knows from the Western media that never lies), bloody Vlad Putin personally flies out in a “Russian machine of destruction” to bombing the moderate opposition fighting the tyrant Assad in conscience has some curious side effects.

For example, as reported by The Gospel Herald, thousands of Muslim Kurds in northern Iraq have suddenly become interested in Christianity.

According to the head of the Kurdish regional office of the Christian Relief Mission, people want to learn about Christ after stories of miraculous healings, mercy and love.

These stories made an impression on the Muslim Kurds after a close acquaintance with the pseudo-Muslim shaitans of the “Iblis state”.And also for the reason that the aforementioned organization and others similar to it gave food, water and shelter to 900 thousand refugees. The contrast played a role, as they say. The stories of mercy sound very convincing from the lips of the people who fed the listener and gave him a place in the tent.

Humanity in its development is steadily moving towards harmony. While Hellenistic culture gave impetus to this development, it dominated the Mediterranean. Then this culture rotted, and it was replaced by the Roman culture.Also, at first, it was quite clean and pushed the society in the right direction.

When the Roman society was mired in perversions and other degenerative moments, Christianity appeared inside it, like a wasp larva inside an infected caterpillar. Then it hatched and took over in harmony. However, it was the turn of Christianity, first to split into two large branches, and then to rot (we are talking about the western branch – Catholicism, originally based on the pride of the Roman curia; the eastern branch developed in a different way).

When Western Christianity was rotten through and through, its internal resources to generate something new immediately were not enough, but a new religion appeared – Muslim. She and her followers at the time of their appearance were internally more harmonious than Catholicism, and therefore Islam began to spread rapidly, pushing Christians away.

However, contacts with the “Franks” were not in vain. Islam also began to rot, and when the process went far, the Reformation was born within Catholicism. Compared to the Catholic clergy, mired in drunkenness and debauchery, Lutherans, Calvinists and other Protestants were much less attached to the earthly, striving for spirituality, which gave these branches of Western Christianity the opportunity to gain strength.

Then everything was according to the same scheme. As soon as one of the worldviews that had previously pushed the masses of people towards greater awareness and increased harmony, rotted away, a certain counterbalance immediately appeared.

Why do you think German women are so willing to marry Wahhabis and convert to Islam? Because in Germany Christianity has completely rotted away. Churches are being turned into gyms and clubs, propaganda of homosexuality and other things in this vein reigns everywhere. So people rush to the other extreme.

However, Wahhabism / Salafism is extreme in the Middle East.And Christians helping refugees, in comparison with shaitans, look much more harmonious, attracting, for example, Muslim Kurds to their worldview.

Russian civilization stands apart from this whole process, where there is really freedom of religion, and the general striving of society for harmony after the intoxication of the end of the last century has increased many times. Therefore, many foreigners who marry Russian women willingly convert to Orthodoxy, shining like a beacon against the background of the degenerate Sabbath taking place in Europe.

In general, further I am too lazy to describe what is obvious to me. I think you get the idea.

I will end with the following statement: the general vector of human development towards harmony does not change, regardless of how Yin and Yang fight inside the wheel of being rolling forward. And the best feeling in this wheel is those who try to stay in the middle, without falling into either Western or Middle Eastern extremes. That is, we are.

This is one of the reasons why the XXI century will be the Century of Russia.

Hypocritical grin of European “freedom”: how Europe has sunk to the censorship of the Russian media

The European establishment is once again expanding its own vision of “threats from the East.” Now their “piggy bank” has been replenished with one more image – a man with a dictaphone and a video camera. On the eve of the MEPs voted for the adoption of a resolution on counteracting the Russian media, allegedly conducting “hostile propaganda”. To reinforce such rhetoric, European parliamentarians did not even hesitate to compare Russia’s opposition in this area with the fight against the “Islamic State” (the group is banned in the Russian Federation).

In the adopted document, the Sputnik news agency and the RT channel were named the most dangerous resources for the West. It is noteworthy that, even despite the alarming analogies with IS voiced, this decision was supported by only less than half of the deputies: 304 out of 691. 208 parliamentarians abstained from expressing their opinion at all, and 179 strongly opposed the adoption of such an openly provocative document.

Inspired by Orwell

It is known that the resolution entitled “EU Strategic Communications as Counteraction to Third Party Propaganda” was initiated by the Polish MP Anna Fotyga.The document turned out to be crammed with an impressive number of anti-Russian clichés, traditional for the current composition of the European Parliament. However, it was the aggressive attacks against the Russian media that caused the greatest resonance. In particular, the document practically proposed to introduce censorship in relation to the press from the Russian Federation, and also reflected a recommendation to the EU countries to adopt “legal initiatives to solve the problem of disinformation and propaganda.” Particularly cynical against this background was the need, emphasized in the same resolution, “to observe media pluralism and freedom of information.”

It is known about the author of the scandalous document that she has been serving for the second term in the European Parliament, and in general, in politics, she positions herself as a professional “fiery revolutionary” since the days of Lech Walesa’s “Solidarity”. It was in those early years that the star of the young graduate of the Trade Faculty of the University of Gdansk was lit up. At first, having joined the protest movement popular among Polish youth, she ended up in the international negotiations department of this opposition organization, and then headed the so-called “Bureau of Foreign Affairs” of “Solidarity”.The closeness to Walesa brought yesterday’s trade specialist to the highest circles of the new Polish government: Fotyga managed to stay in the post of foreign minister of the country (albeit not for long – only a year), headed the office of the Polish president (also for a year), and sat in the Polish Sejm.

Recently, the “revolutionary” has firmly established herself in Strasbourg, where she represents her country in the European Parliament, being considered one of the most odious representatives of the group of European conservatives.

It is interesting that Fotyga and her associates also expect to put the fight against the Russian media on a professional basis. It is known that the European Union allocates a very substantial budget for these purposes, the initial size of which is already estimated at one million euros. The EU Observer portal, which revealed the details of this plan, reported that a certain “working group on information countermeasures to Russia” has already been created within the EU. It is she who will have to master the financing of future measures to combat Russian journalists.Note: the current scandalous decision of the European Parliament so far has the status of only recommendations. It is not difficult to assume that with its adoption one can expect the creation of official structures, such as those described in George Orwell’s novel “1984” …

“Standards” of pseudo-democracy

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the decision of the European Parliament can be regarded as nothing other than “an absolutely obvious degradation (in the political sense of the word) of the concept of democracy in Western society, in this case at the level of the European Parliament.”As the Russian leader recalled, “quite recently, and these attempts are still continuing, everyone has tried and is still trying to teach democracy. And we have always heard from these teachers that the most vicious way to deal with opponents is to prohibit something, that it does not correspond to the principles and norms of democracy. The best way is to openly discuss and present in this discussion your bright and convincing arguments in defense of your point of view. ”

At the same time, Vladimir Putin assumes that in this situation common sense will prevail and no restrictions will follow.At the same time, the head of the Russian state supported the journalists who prompted the representatives of the representative European body to make such decisions.

“I would like to congratulate them on the fact that they are doing, apparently, very actively, efficiently and talentedly,” the President of Russia noted.

In the Russian Foreign Ministry, the European Parliament’s resolution on counteracting the Russian media was directly called a “crime”. This is how Maria Zakharova, Director of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, described the situation when “in the presence of a real threat in the form of terrorism, fundamentalism, and moreover, a breeding ground in the form of nationalism, xenophobia, the view of the international community is taken in a completely different direction.”

According to Zakharova, Western politicians do not give people the opportunity to analyze and think based on alternative sources of information. In this regard, she recalled: “only in a dispute is the truth born, only if there are several arguments, you can understand how to proceed.”

Russian parliamentarians are unanimous in the opinion that the adoption by the European colleagues of such an odious resolution is not aimed at rapprochement of positions. For example, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, believes that such documents “are an instrument of propaganda and information warfare.”Another senator, Alexei Pushkov, believes that the adopted resolution “creates a myth about the Russian information threat, and also testifies to the unpreparedness of MEPs for competition and the crisis of the liberal elite in the EU.”

First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security Franz Klintsevich calls the adoption of the resolution a “black day” in the history of the European Parliament.

“In fact, the voices of the Russophobic minority trampled down, reduced to zero, freedom of speech, which the West initially postulated as its main value, as the basis of the foundations of democracy,” he said.

Leonid Slutsky, head of the Russian State Duma’s international affairs committee, did not rule out retaliatory measures in the event of censorship of the Russian media in the European Union. True, he expressed the hope that common sense will prevail and that it will not come to this. In turn, Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Pyotr Tolstoy proposed to allocate a million euros planned for the information war to accommodate and improve refugees.

“This would correspond to the humanistic values ​​declared by Europe much more,” he believes.

Not freedom of speech

It is interesting that in the European Parliament itself, opinions on the adoption of the resolution were divided. The impressive number of those who abstained and voted against this anti-Russian statement is a vivid confirmation of this. During the preparation of the document, the most harsh statements were removed from it. Such as “propaganda war”, “hostile propaganda”, as well as references to certain “authoritarian regimes”, which supposedly “take an example from the Kremlin.”

Spanish MEP Javier Kouso Permui called the document prepared by his Polish colleague Anna Fotyga as “inadequate, dangerous”.

“It is aimed at confrontation,” says the Spanish MEP. – This is an infringement on freedom of information. To put a state, which is a member of the UN Security Council and other international organizations, on a par with the terrorist group ISIS, which distributes videos of torture and murder, is an insult to intelligent Europe. “

Javier Kouso Permui also points out that the resolution ignores US propaganda “to legitimize recent incursions into, for example, Iraq, leading to regional chaos.”

French MEP Emerick Shoprad noted that this document overlooks the existence of strong anti-Russian propaganda in the West, which is being carried out in the major world media.

“They talk about RT, but they don’t talk about CNN, BBC, other Anglo-Saxon and French channels,” the parliamentarian notes.”In general, the resolution aims to create a unified point of view on the world, interfere with the free competition of information and limit Russia’s presence in the information market.”

It is worth noting that Sputnik has already approached international organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, OSCE and Reporters Without Borders, with a request to take measures to prevent restrictions on media freedom in the EU. The appeal was also sent to the European Federation and the International Federation of Journalists, the International Center for Journalism (USA), the International Press Institute (Austria), the Committee to Protect Journalists (USA) and the international organization Censorship Index (UK).

Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said that “the European Parliament’s resolution strikes a blow at the authoritative Russian media and is aimed at stopping their activities in the European Union.” By the way, the head of the news agency also emphasizes that the decision taken contradicts a number of the EU’s own standards in the field of human rights and freedom of the media. For example, article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, article 11 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, as well as the 2012 EU resolution on the development of a Digital Freedom Strategy in EU foreign policy.

Censorship ricocheted

According to Timur Shafir, Secretary of the Union of Journalists of Russia, head of the International Department of the UJR, the resolution of the European Parliament poses a danger of direct violation of the rights of Russian journalists, and also, which is no less dangerous in the future, of the introduction of direct censorship throughout Europe.

“Any restriction on the work of the media, any restriction of the rights of journalists to access information and deliver it to the audience, clearly as well as the right of people, peoples to receive this information, runs counter to the statutory, fundamental principles on which the common European project was originally based” , – notes the secretary of the UJR.

“It is no longer surprising that the authors of the resolution, on the one hand, accusing the Russian media of“ engagement ”and“ propaganda, ”demand their limitation, and on the other, without even for a moment doubting their own infallibility, demand an increase in the budget of the so-called “European groups for information countermeasures,” – said Timur Shafir. – In the face of such a blatant use of the practice of double standards (all media are equal, but some are “more equal”), in the face of the fact, in fact, of directly pushing for censorship and professional segregation, in a situation where journalists are increasingly being used as weapons of information warfare , the authors of such resolutions continue to find the strength, confidence and audacity to use the concept of “freedom of speech and information”.
