Our camp is the perfect place where your child can learn and grow, be challenged, and make lasting friendships. But don’t just take our word for it: Here’s what parents and guardians from across the Greater Baltimore region have to say about our program offerings!
I think this summer camp is the best. Mika enjoys every day, the activities, and the friends she has made. My kids have already asked if they will always attend UMBC Camp and if they will go back next year. YES, YES, YES! Thank you again for a wonderful summer!
The indoor facilities are fantastic and one less thing to worry about the kids being in the heat and sun too long, but still having ample room to run around and do activities. We are certainly glad we found this camp and recommended it to others who are looking for summer camps.
This was our first time at UMBC camp and we just did 1 week (the last week) to try it out. Our son loved it, especially getting to swim 2x a day. Everyone there was very nice and organized and did a great job making us feel at ease with leaving our young son there.

NFL teams enter the preseason with their fingers crossed, Jordy Nelson Jerseysknowing that nothing is more important than emerging from their practice games with minimal injuries. They are, however, inevitable. We’ll spend the summer tracking the major ailments to arise during the games themselves. To be clear, this list won’t include injuries that are suffered in practice.
Here are the most notable from Week 1 of the 2017 preseason:
Prognosis: McMillan will miss the season.Aaron Rodgers JerseysA second-round draft choice, McMillan was expected to be the Dolphins’ starting middle linebacker. But he suffered the injury Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons while covering a punt – and before he took a single defensive snap.
More people play on ESPN than anywhere else. Join or create a league in the No. 1 Fantasy Football game! Sign up for free!
Prognosis: The NFL concussion protocol is different for each player, Bart Starr Jerseysso there is no way to estimate how much time Randall will miss.But it was an unfortunate start for a player who missed six games last season because of a groin injury. Penciled in as a starter for 2017, Randall will be replaced in the meantime by rookie Kevin King. The injury occurred Thursday night, when Philadelphia Eagles receiver Bryce Treggs delivered a blow to his head.
Prognosis: Murphy, who notched a career-high nine sacks in 2016, will miss the season. Of course, he already was suspended for the first four games because he violated the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.Clay Matthews JerseysBy league rules, Murphy can serve the suspension while on injured reserve, so he will be clear to return for Week 1 of the 2018 season. That’s assuming he is healthy and has signed with a team; Murphy is a pending free agent.
Prognosis: Cravens, expected to start at strong safety, will miss two or three weeks after the knee forced him from Thursday night’s preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. Cravens has a history of knee issues.
Prognosis: Winn will miss the season.Eddie Lacy JerseysHe was expected to play a key role in the Broncos’ defensive rotation after re-signing in the offseason, but he suffered the injury Thursday night in the first quarter of the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears.
Prognosis: Sankey will miss the season and has been waived / injured. Randall Cobb JerseysHe had been working as the Vikings’ No. 2 running back behind Dalvin Cook, in part because of Latavius Murray’s offseason ankle surgery, but had a decent chance to make the team.
Prognosis: Hyder would miss the season if those fears are realized, a big blow to a defense that was intending to use him in a prominent role after a breakout 2016 season. Hyder came from practice squad obscurity to record eight sacks in 2016 and was getting first-team work at defensive end in the absence of Ziggy Ansah, who is on the physically unable to perform list.
90,000 The Great Globalist on the Global Pandemic and the Great Reboot
One of the few advantages of frequent air travel is the ability to read without interrupting phone calls and other business.On my list of “must-reads” came the turn of the book by Klaus Schwab and Thierry Muller “COVID-19: The Great Reset” (“COVID-19: The Great Reset”). Fortunately, modern technologies make it possible not to carry paper volumes with you and not even wait for their translations into Russian.
Why did I decide to share my impressions of this particular book? First, it introduces us to the reflections on the global pandemic of one of the main globalists of the planet and ideologists of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.Secondly, it is the subject of the most controversial opinions and assessments of Western readers. For some, it is “the key book for understanding how the world lives today.” For others, it is “a frightening book written by people laying out their roadmap for global governance.” 90,028 90,029 And, I must say, much more negative reviews: on Amazon
the book with a noticeable “creak” scored only 3.5 points out of 5 and became the “most scandalous” in 2020. Moreover, both high and low marks were given, as a rule, for the same thing – the directness of the author’s judgments.As a result, for some it has become an “open warning”, and for others – an “open conspiracy” (a metaphor with a half-filled or half-empty glass immediately suggests itself). The work of Schwab and Mallere has been compared to the dystopias of 1984 and Brave New World, but, unlike Orwell and Huxley, it is criticized for its gloom and despair. But can dystopia be optimistic?
As for the domestic discourse, for him this book went almost unnoticed, since other, outwardly more impressive events and facts were offered to public attention.In particular, the presidential elections in the United States. There were only a few central Russian media and private observers who responded (mostly sharply negatively) about the creation of the chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF)
Considering that Schwab’s two previous books “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” and “Shaping the Future of the Fourth Industrial Revolution” not only received high ratings on world book platforms, but and have become almost “obligatory” for mention in scientific publications about the digitalization of modern society, you involuntarily ask yourself a question: how can you explain such a harsh ostracism in relation to his own, albeit with Mallere, “The Great Reset”?
I will try to answer this question, in no way pretending to be a deep and comprehensive analysis of the original source and not wanting to repeat what others have already said.I will dwell on those moments that are remembered first of all.
The first and foremost disappointment, readers can experience already at the entrance to the book. If its “Amazonian” annotation promises them a “disturbing but reassuring analysis” of the current and post-pandemic situation and instills confidence in the foresight and ingenuity of people capable of “taking fate into their own hands and planning a better future”, then the annotation placed in the book itself sets up completely different. She explains that readers will find “a lot of speculation and ideas about what a post-pandemic world might and should look like”; and that humanity has only two paths.“One path will lead us to a better world: more inclusive, fairer and more respectful of Mother Nature. Another will take us to a world similar to the one we just left, but even worse and constantly haunted by unpleasant surprises. Therefore, we must make the right choice. ” It is clear that in this case there is no real choice. But it is not clear why there are many assumptions and ideas about the future, and there are only two ways – the best and the worst. In addition, a significant part of humanity, exhausted by the pandemic and lockdowns, is nostalgic for the old world and does not want something fundamentally different.It is not surprising that after such an initiation, the rest of the story is perceived as the imposition of someone else’s ill will. There are many other contradictions in the book, which creates a feeling of some haste and groundlessness of a number of conclusions of Dr. Schwab and his team, as well as those “futures” that they offer.
Indeed, the book, which claims to be a systematic analysis of the global crisis caused by COVID-19, and the only strategy for entering a brighter future, was published in June 2020, that is, just 3 months after the official announcement of the pandemic.Many saw this as a direct confirmation of the authors’ belonging to the circle of people who knew about it and its consequences in advance and planned it with the aim of a “great reset” of the world order in their own interests. If we also bear in mind “Event 201”, which occurred just a few months before the start of the pandemic, then the conspiracy nature of the book “COVID-19: The Great Reboot”, at first glance, is simply impossible to refute. Let me remind you that Event 201 is a high-level pandemic exercise that took place on October 18, 2019 at Johns Hopkins Research University (Baltimore, USA) with the participation of representatives of the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation and WEF in the format of a simulation computer game.Its goal was to identify areas where public-private partnerships will be needed while tackling a serious pandemic to mitigate negative economic and social impacts. Attentive observers write that the real coronavirus pandemic has begun and is literally following the scenario of the game “event 201”, which the authors of the book under discussion knew about. How can this be explained, except as “played, played and finished the game”?
Personally, I think that in order to understand this situation it is necessary to read more carefully the previous two books of Schwab and compare them with what is written in his opus with Muller.In my opinion, the “best way” proposed in it follows quite logically from the content of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” and its “Technologies”. Somewhere these books just repeat each other. From this point of view, the main strategies outlined in The Great Reset are indeed a pre-planned agenda, since they are based on the theses formulated several years ago, as well as on the entire victorious technocratic discourse that has sharply intensified since the 1990s in connection with the global the spread of the Internet and the emergence of various innovative technologies (primarily NBIC).Schwab is faithful to his doctrine of digitalization of all spheres of life and has never hidden it. The only difference is that “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” was published in 2016, that is, in a relatively peaceful time, and “The Great Reboot” was in the midst of the war against the coronavirus, when the readership was inflated and annoyed by any facts and predictions. having a negative character. Five years ago, readers perceived Schwab as a futurist, and today – as a tough realist, cynic and digital dictator.But the essence of his doctrine did not change from this. The contexts have changed.
People who were quite calm and interested in the predictions of Klaus Schwab about the Fourth Industrial Revolution and Raymond Kurzweil about the technological singularity, for the most part, were not ready for the fact that they would begin to come true so quickly. It is more convenient for them when technologies evolve gradually, and not rapidly, that is, revolutionary. The natural instinct of self-preservation is triggered. Those who are ready to immediately use the latest technologies rarely think about the risks and negative effects of technologization and digitalization, despite all the warnings (read J.Attali, J. Habermas, W. Mitchell, S. Garfinkel, D. Rushkoff). In other words, we all want “to have everything” – a variety of gadgets, wireless communications, social networks, online shopping, telemedicine, “smart” homes, and so on; “And we wouldn’t get anything for it” – computer addiction, fake news, annoying advertisements, total control over us, restrictions on our mobility (in case of tax evasion, for example). But it doesn’t work that way! These are really two sides of the same coin.
As for the amazing similarity of the scenarios of “event 201” and the real pandemic of the coronavirus, for this purpose the computer simulation was carried out in order to predict as much as possible what could actually happen.It is clear that all risks, including the possibility of all sorts of “leaks”, were introduced into the conditions of the problem. Similar simulation games, studying various global problems, are constantly held at Johns Hopkins University. By the way, this university, with its branches in Italy and China, is still the main think tank tracking global statistics on COVID-19.
We cannot exclude the factor of “non-random chance” of the coincidence of the strategies of a computer game, a pandemic, and a book as a particular manifestation of a certain pattern.
It is known, for example, that the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 was described in almost detail in the novel Futility by the American science fiction writer Morgan Robertson, published 14 years earlier. The researchers of the crash were amazed at the similarity of situations, causes of disasters, as well as technical parameters and even the names of giant liners: the real Titanic and the fictional Titan. Later it turned out that Robertson was a very experienced naval officer, who rose to the rank of first mate, and therefore had a good idea of how ships collide with icebergs.In addition, he monitored the trend towards the production of increasingly larger liners in the late 19th century, and realized that this could affect their maneuverability. Schwab and Mallere also closely monitored all trends before publishing their work describing the course and possible consequences of the pandemic for various spheres of society.
So, for what theses of the book “COVID-19: The Great Reboot” are its authors most criticized? Here is some of them:
– Many people ask: when will we return to normal life? The short answer is never.Our story will be divided into two parts: before the coronavirus and after.
The answer from Schwab and Mallera is unpleasant, but honest, and impossible to argue with. Some readers saw in this “never” the coming era of continuous global pandemics and lockdowns. I didn’t see it. Moreover, the authors call the coronavirus pandemic a “quasi-instant” phenomenon, in contrast to the environmental crisis, which can last for tens of years. Lockdowns a priori cannot be endless, as they kill the economy and damage all spheres of society.But it is obvious that the post-pandemic era will be an era of super-complexity, super-instability and fragility, forcing humanity in the person of scientists, engineers, IT specialists, heads of corporations and states to think about the possible consequences of the use of any new breakthrough technology, no matter what industry it concerns. Otherwise, in addition to natural disasters that do not depend on man, new – “man-made” – global catastrophes and disasters are possible. The rest of the people will also cherish the memory of the global pandemic 2020, which will force them to change their lifestyle in many ways and, possibly, change their values.
– A “new normal” is forming, radically different from the one we will leave behind. Many of our beliefs and guesses about what the world might or should look like will collapse.
In fact, this is a continuation of the previous thesis. If “new normalcy” means a new picture of the world or, as the philosophers say, a new ontology, then one cannot argue with that. Ontology changes or “great reboots” have happened more than once. For example, mankind has existed for centuries with the idea of the Earth as a flat 90,059 surface, and these ideas influenced everything – religion, attitude to nature, etc.It was hardly easy for those who lived at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries to immediately get used to the idea that the Earth is not only round, but also revolves around its axis and the Sun. It is difficult for any adult to accept the “new normal”. For this to happen easily, you need to be born in it and grow up. So we are now at the turn of the eras, which is why it is so difficult for us. Another question is WHAT exactly is the “new normality” coming to us. What Schwab and Mallere offer us in this capacity is far from indisputable.In some cases, it is simply a priori unacceptable as a permanent measure of influence on people and as a way of their life. I mean total digital control, the transition of the overwhelming majority of educational institutions only to online learning, etc. Based on the thesis of the authors themselves, we can say that their current beliefs and guesses about how the world should look like can also collapse.
– The more demographic growth, the higher the risk of new pandemics.
Some critics have taken this thesis as a direct call for population reduction. I would call this a “Freudian slip.” Demographic growth has always been a sore point for Club of Rome members, and now, apparently, for the WEF as well. I would like to say right away that the risk of new pandemics can be increased by other factors: the development and production of biological weapons somewhere, despite the international Convention on the prohibition of such; poverty and lack of access to quality health care; lack of fresh water and so on.And if you analyze the whole book, and not pull out individual phrases from it, then it is obvious that the authors understand this perfectly. But it is also obvious that they have a special attitude to the topic of demography. Of course, it should constantly be present on the agenda of leaders of states and relevant organizations. In particular, such aspects as the search for ways to increase the birth rate in “aging” Europe and its containment in the poorest and undeveloped countries of Africa and Asia (by the way, special studies have shown that the most powerful means of such containment is not the promotion of contraception, but women’s education ).In general, the planet is still very far from overpopulation. And now everyone should be worried about another addiction: pandemics are reducing population growth!
– The pandemic gives us a chance: it is a narrow window of opportunity for thinking, solving and rebooting our world. Emergencies often turn out to be a forge in which new ideas are forged.
Critics of Schwab and Mallere reproach them for “fictionalizing” the pandemic and its possibilities in relation to the “great reset.”But Schwab and Mallere are far from the first to see crises as both a danger and a potential for transformation. And this is the most reasonable approach, unless for this purpose crises are not created on purpose. Naturally, the authors predict great progress and many innovations in sectors such as digital technology and biotechnology development, as well as in the arts. The historical cases cited by them show that situations of forced isolation in a number of cases contribute to deeper reflection and concentration of attention on the object under study in people with original – scientific and artistic – thinking.Among these were, for example, Boccaccio, Newton and Shakespeare, hiding from the plague, as well as Pushkin, who survived the cholera epidemic in Boldino. It is believed that it was in isolation that they made their most outstanding discoveries and created the most ingenious works. We do not yet know all the discoveries and works on which scientists, engineers, painters, sculptors, writers, screenwriters and composers are now working, but there will certainly be such. On my own behalf, I would add a case confirming that quarantine in combination with new technologies that support social communication, it turns out, can lead to a creative state even not just a few, but masses of people.This is the emergence in mid-March 2020 of the many thousands of flash mob “Isolation” among Russian-speaking users of social networks. Tired of the monotony of their forced leisure, people began to reproduce compositions of famous paintings and sculptures from scrap materials, posting their photos on the Internet. Similar projects were then initiated in other countries, but they could not surpass the Russian initiative.
– Many will realize that working from home is more climate-friendly and less stressful than commuting to the office.
Schwab and Mallere have been criticized for “singing an ode” to teleworking from home. Actually, it was first sung by Alvin Toffler in The Third Wave (1980), describing the delights of an “electronic cottage” that allows a family to rationally manage production processes using computers and cable-satellite communication networks and have additional leisure time, without wasting time moving between home and place of work, but maintaining virtual contact with society. As they say, be afraid of your desires.Today, many will perceive the proposal of this lifestyle as a bullying. However, there are also many who are not only accustomed to it, but also do not want to return to the old for various reasons. We are talking, first of all, about people who have a permanent job and can do it quite effectively “remotely” in a comfortable environment.
– If democracy and globalization expand, then there will be no place for the nation state.
But you definitely shouldn’t be in a hurry with this.Perhaps someday all countries will merge into a single earthly state, as described in many science fiction novels, but this process cannot be artificially accelerated. So far, the more productive idea seems to be not total globalization, but glocalization , understood as the coexistence of multidirectional, but mutually complementary tendencies – globalization and localization. I would illustrate it this way: one of the main motives of tourism as a global phenomenon is the interest in local (that is, national) cultures.The processes of universalization and monopolization that invariably accompany globalization have led to the fact that, getting to different countries, you see the same chain hotels, cafes, shops, cinemas. Why go somewhere if it’s the same everywhere? As a result, those countries where national traditions in architecture, various arts and crafts have been preserved, have become the most visited. National culture is the most important resource and spiritual heritage of every nation.
– A potential solution for universities could be a hybrid model.The world of education, like other industries, will become partially virtual.
Despite the fact that many months of practice of universal complete transition of universities to “virtuality” revealed not only the disadvantages, but also the advantages of online learning and naturally led to the idea of a future hybrid model of the educational process as a combination of its offline and online formats, part of the domestic teaching community until it accepts. In fact, this is also a question of changing ontologies in the minds of people, which was touched upon above.It will take some time for the new picture of the world of higher education to settle in the heads of universities, teachers, students and their parents. The speed of this process will largely depend on the content of the hybrid model itself, as well as on the options in which this model can be implemented. Our goal is to make this content deep and varied, and the options are convenient for students and teachers and complementary to each other. It is this kind of “hybrid” design that the world universities are engaged in today.In a sense, it resembles both the work of aviation engineers and dispatchers, who need not only to create modern aircraft, but also to control them in the air, taking into account difficult weather conditions and a variety of time zones. The hybrid model is not so much a sequential change of periods of face-to-face and distance learning (although there may be such a practice), but a combination of various options for offline and online formats within the same periods and groups of students (“hybrid classes”).
In addition to the indicated theses, Schwab and Mallere are accused of other “sins” that cannot be fully enumerated within the framework of one review. Obviously correct and very timely thoughts of the authors were also criticized. For example, the opinion of the younger generation, who will have to suffer from economic and social insecurity, as millions of young people will reach the age of employment in the midst of the deepest recession, cannot be ignored when developing a new social contract.“Millennials (at least in the Western world) are already worse off than their parents in terms of income, assets and wealth. They are more likely to own less property and have fewer children than their parents. Now another generation (Gen Z) is entering a system that it considers ineffective and that will be driven by long-standing problems identified and exacerbated by the pandemic, ”Schwab and Mallere write. But here, too, they are accused of “banality and pessimism,” which they would not blame others for if they expressed something similar.They also got it for their commitment to “green” energy, which they “are trying to impose on humanity.”
How can you explain such a reaction from readers? In my opinion, the “halo effect” is triggered here: dislike for globalists as such leaves an imprint on literally everything they say and write. And if these globalists are also narcissists, then nothing is forgiven them. Indeed, at the end of section 3.1.1 (“The best angels in our nature … or not”), the authors of “The Great Reset” consciously or unconsciously make it clear that they are the very “angels” of human nature that humanity should call upon in a situation, when it is itself incapable of responding to existential crises.Well what can you say? It is difficult at least sometimes not to lose your head from admiration for yourself, if you head the club of the richest and most influential people on the planet!
And yet, what is the attitude to this book and is it worth reading at all? Definitely worth it. But based on common sense. You can’t take everything for granted. The scenarios presented in The Great Reset are just ideas, and the ideas are not yet the truth. Ideas generate truths only if their readers accept them. Try to be impartial.Life is not linear: “black swans” can fly in at any moment and radically change any plans and strategies. Some theses of the book are refuted by life itself: after the February events in Texas, where for many days millions of people were deprived of electricity and heat due to windmills and solar panels that do not work at low temperatures, the “ode” to green energy, sung by Schwab and Muller, sounds already far from solemn.
I am close to the position according to which the world is now at a point of bifurcation, which means that the choice of the trajectory of its further development largely depends on the actors, that is, on you and me.There really is no turning back. You need to learn to live in a new reality. I see the significance of the book COVID-19: The Great Reboot, first of all, in the fact that it makes everyone think about this new reality and their place in it.
PS: While this review was being prepared, another book by Klaus Schwab (co-authored with Peter Vanham) was published – “Stakeholder Capitalism: A Global Economy that Works for Progress, People and Planet “).Apparently, now Schwab will “get” from the capitalists themselves.

90,000 Soon after Fulton. Socio-psychological foundations of the Cold War

Perhaps none of the political speeches in the 20th century attracted such attention of contemporaries, and then of historians, as the Fulton speech of Winston Churchill,
spoken seventy-five years ago.
An invitation from Westminster College from the town of Fulton, Missouri with a request to visit it for the presentation of an honorary
The British ex-Prime Minister received his diploma back in August 1945. Moreover, with the postscript of US President Harry Truman:
“This is a wonderful school in my home state.Hope you can do it. I’ll introduce you myself. ”
On March 3, 1946, Churchill arrived in Washington to travel from there on the presidential train to Fulton with Truman.
Numerous sources indicate that Churchill’s Fulton speech was coordinated in detail with the US leadership, and at the same time, according to the testimony of its author, the Americans did not
corrected not a single word in it, although they had every opportunity to do so. The “green light” from the side of the White House was, of course, not accidental.Truman knew how to calculate his steps not only in poker (in which he and Churchill played on the train) and well understood what the performance planned in Fulton with his participation would result in. Despite the warnings
his advisers J. Davis and R. Hannegan, that Churchill could “go far” and “bind him with his speech” , Truman strenuously demonstrated his closeness to the ex-prime minister and created an advertisement for his speech.
“All the data clearly indicate that,” writes the American historian F.Herbeth – that Truman licensed Churchill to public apologetics,
moreover – in its own legitimizing presence – a close and global military alliance between England and America, the only purpose of which could be the containment of the Soviet
power until its subsequent destruction ” 1 Harbutt F. The Iron Curtain. Churchill, America

The motives for this “licensing” are quite understandable. In the context of the beginning of perestroika
his policy Truman was
it is imperative to probe
reaction to it from the USSR
already at an early stage. It is no coincidence that it was March 5 – as if
to the accompaniment of Churchill’s
warning to the USSR –
The White House has embarked on a series
new offensive steps.Washington demanded from Moscow
provide all copies of the economic agreements of the USSR with the countries of Eastern Europe, said
protest against Soviet economic intervention in Manchuria, demanded an explanation
reasons for the delay of Soviet troops
in Iran. March 6 was announced
about sending a heavy
American battleship “Missouri” under the pretext of returning
the body of the Turkish ambassador who died in the United States, but in fact – for
demonstrating support for Turkey
at a difficult moment for her, confronting Soviet demands on the issue of the Black Sea

claims on Kars and Ardahan.The press crept fed
alarming rumors about plans of atomic bombing of Baku

British and American
diplomacy launched a wide campaign of pressure on the USSR

Iran on the provision of the Soviet Union with oil
concessions, and Stalin delayed

the Iranian crisis and the diplomatic isolation of the USSR.
Equally important to Truman
was to feel the mood
the American public.
With the help of Churchill, popular in America, it was possible to persuade
public opinion to the awareness of the need to actively
counteract the “Soviet
threat “. In this regard, for Truman, the Fulton speech became “part of

reaction in the USA, Western Europe
and in England itself turned out to be contradictory, reflecting the unwillingness of the Western public

G. Ickes and some others) were
shocked by the revelations of the express and their tacit support by Truman. Especially

his performance, calling it
“The most important speech of my career.” He knew that despite

about the trip for the British Cabinet he wrote with satisfaction:

And so it happened.
A month after Fulton,
according to polls, the share of supporters of the Anglo-American union,
to which Churchill called,
almost doubled (up to 85%),
and the proportion of those who condemned “behavior
Russians ”increased to 71%.The most developed (and much
lesser known) performance
after Fulton Churchill did
during a gala dinner
in his honor, hosted by the New York authorities and the city
nobility on March 15 at the fashionable hotel Waldorf Astoria.
It was not intended for the general public, but its echoes
quickly dispersed far beyond Fifth Avenue, where the hotel was located. British
the embassy the next
day forwarded the text of the speech to London.Recall: in ten days
after the speech in Fulton, the situation inside the United States and in the world as a whole
has changed markedly. The White house
increased pressure on the USSR immediately after
By this time had reached
its apogee and the propaganda campaign around the Fulton speech in the Soviet Union.

in which he attacked Churchill as a “warmonger”,
calling for a new “crusade” against the USSR and the establishment of world domination
Leading Western newspapers reported this interview already at
the next morning, so Churchill had an opportunity to react
on the attack of his recent “comrade in arms” in his evening speech at the Waldorf Astoria.
Despite the fact that Stalin’s hacking was habitual for Churchill
business since their correspondence
during the war years, he apparently did not expect such a harsh response, but tried to take it philosophically.
In his circle, he said what is

FROM WINSTON CHURCHILL’S SPEECH IN WESTMINSTER
COLLEGE, FULTON, USA, MARCH 5, 1946
In the photo: Winston Churchill. London. 1945 year.
It is hard for me to imagine that ensuring effective measures to prevent a new war and develop close
cooperation between peoples was possible without creating
what I would call a fraternal union of English-speaking countries.
By this I mean the special relationship between Great Britain and the British Commonwealth of Nations on the one hand and the United States of America on the other. Now
this is not the time for general phrases, so I will try to be as specific as possible. This kind of fraternal alliance means not only the all-round strengthening of friendship
and mutual understanding between our two so similar political and social systems and peoples, but
and the continuation of close cooperation between our military advisers with the transition in the future to joint
identification of a potential military threat, the development of similar
types of weapons and instructions for handling them, as well as
mutual exchange of officers and cadets of military and military-technical educational institutions.
This should be combined with mutual security measures such as
joint use of all the naval resources available to each of our countries in different parts of the world
and air bases, which will double the mobility
both American and British naval and air forces and will, as a result of the stabilization of the world
furnishings, significant savings in financial resources.
The only question that is for me
remains open is whether
the necessary harmony of thought and deed between the American and British peoples was achieved systematically and in time to prevent a new
world battle, or it will happen after
the beginning of this fight, as it happened before.I am convinced that the answer to this question would be
positive. I don’t believe war is inevitable
or is already on the doorstep. I do not believe that the rulers of Russia now want war. I’m sure if
we calmly but resolutely stand up for the defense
not narrow national interests and ambitions, but ideals and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, then the cause of peace and freedom is confident
triumph, im with the United States
at the head we will be able to continue our noble work
to overcome hunger, to heal terrible wounds
Hitler’s war and the restoration of the destroyed building of human civilization.
My sincere wish for Russia to live
in security and prosperity and would take an honorable place in the ranks of the world organization.
Whether she can achieve this depends only on the decisions of a bunch of capable people at the head
with their famous leader who keep
the fate of 180 million Russians and many millions of people outside of Russia is in their hands. We all
remember what terrible losses Russia suffered
during the Nazi invasion, how did it stand
and recovered triumphantly from blows like no other country knew.
Throughout the English-speaking world there is a wide and deep feeling of sympathy for the Russian people and a complete willingness to work with them on an equal footing in order to
eliminate the devastation of war in all countries. If
The Soviet government will not take advantage of this
attitude, but will cool and undermine it,
then all responsibility for this will fall on him.
By the way, he now has a great opportunity to respond to criticism and speeches that he does not like. The way to this is open
in the next few weeks.The British government, which I then headed, signed a treaty with Russia and Persia (or, if you prefer,
Iran, which is easily confused with Iraq), according to
to whom we solemnly pledged to respect
sovereignty and territorial integrity
Persia and withdraw from there by a certain date
their troops. This agreement was confirmed in Tehran by a tripartite agreement signed by the head of the Soviet government, the deceased
President Roosevelt and myself.
Following this agreement, the armed forces
The United States and Great Britain left this country.But now we learn that the Soviet government, instead of withdrawing its troops
sends new parts there. My friends, this is
one of those cases for the analysis of which the UN Security Council was created, and I am glad to read in the newspapers (in which there are many accurate
information) that the Soviet representative will take part in its meeting here in New York,
March, 25. May a solution be reached there
this problem and even if the great and interested parties will relate to the decision of the Council
with due respect.This will strengthen
the rule of international law and the international foundations of a lasting peace.
There is no reason for Soviet Russia to consider itself deprived for its
contribution to the war. Her losses, which we sincerely
grieved, were enormous, but her gains
great. Her two main enemies are Germany
and Japan – defeated, with Japan being defeated almost exclusively by force of American arms. Without much effort, Russia returned
everything captured by Japan forty years ago.On
West of the Baltic countries and a significant part
Finland became part of Russia.
And I’m glad that
that the Curzon line is no longer a question 6 This refers to the new border between the USSR
and Poland, drawn approximately along the “line
Curzon “, proposed by the British still
in 1918 ..
All these misunderstandings can be eliminated by
if we pass safely through the current
difficult period and if Americans, British
and Russians will be able to communicate freely and see
how the orders are arranged in different countries.We can certainly learn a lot from each other.
Churchill’s speech contains
a few interesting points. Even more so than
in Fulton, it separates the Soviet
people from “handful” of its leaders,
which he sees as the main obstacle to the “settlement
with Russia “, while giving
tribute to their outstanding qualities. Also noteworthy is his assessment of “acquisitions” of the USSR during
World War II, and explicit
belittling the contribution of the Soviet
Union in the defeat of Japan.Englishman’s statement in Iranian
and Turkish issues actually sounded a polite ultimatum to the Soviet leadership,
an invitation to retreat from
their positions in the face of a joint Anglo-American
rebuff. Ominous tone of speech
gives a passage in which Churchill actually presents the Americans with a choice – the union
with the British Empire now
to prevent further
“Soviet aggression” or the same
union in response to the already begun
war, like five years ago against the countries of the “axis”.

The psychological effect of Churchill’s speeches in the United States is not
confined himself to the Anglo-American world. Words in the Kremlin
ex-prime minister were perceived
as a serious threat. His call for the rallying of the English-speaking
peace signified the alarming prospect of the emergence of an Anglo-American bloc against the USSR.
The connection of the same American
military and economic power
and nuclear weapons from the global
The British Empire was fraught with the most
accidentally Stalin in diplomatic and propaganda reaction
in speech tried to counteract this rapprochement, directing
fire of criticism against Churchill
and his friends ”and separating them from the US government. However, according to
imagine American “revelations”
Churchill was hardly a surprise for Stalin. They only confirmed his stable assessment.
Churchill as ineradicable
enemy of the USSR who stepped on the throat
his anti-Soviet song only
in the face of a common fatal

90,000 US opioid overdose deaths skyrocketing 9,0001
In the shadow of Washington’s government buildings, Gary Hayes seeks another shot of heroin, chasing a high that will only last a few hours before he wants more.
“It’s hard to quit when you live on the street and don’t treat,” Hayes told Voice of America. A 28-year-old black man living in a homeless tent camp in the capital has been battling drug addiction for a decade.
“I’ve overdosed twice in the past year, but I know several people who have died,” Hayes said, reflecting on the deadly opioid epidemic that played out during another health tragedy, the coronavirus pandemic.
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released in July, more than 93,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2020, the highest on record. US health officials have linked the rise in deaths to powerful synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, which can be 100 times more potent than morphine.
Overdose deaths: black vs white
In the District of Columbia, over 400 people died of opioid overdose last year, most of them African American. The medical examiner reported that fentanyl or fentanyl analogs were present in many cases.
“In some communities, we have watched the death rate among African Americans over the past few years exceed the death rate among whites,” said Dr. Caleb Alexander, professor of epidemiology and medicine at the Bloomberg Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore.Maryland. “Many people who have died from an opioid epidemic or otherwise become addicted are African American or other people of color living in urban areas.”
Opioid overdose deaths among African Americans have been on the rise since 2013, according to a study published in the journal Addiction. At the same time, opioid use among white Americans stabilized for the first time since the 1990s, when doctors began to over-prescribe opioid pain relievers, triggering a health crisis.
“Historically, the opioid epidemic has sometimes been portrayed as an epidemic of rural white working class families, but opioids are indistinguishable,” Alexander told Voice of America. “A person’s addiction looks the same regardless of your skin color.”
Impact of pandemic
According to the CDC, between 1999 and 2019, nearly 500,000 US lives were lost to overdose of opioids, both prescription and illicit. The epidemic has affected many communities, and US health officials believe the crisis has worsened since the pandemic began.
Although overdose deaths have already risen in the months leading up to the COVID-19 outbreak, recent data show a sharp rise in overdoses during the pandemic.
“It went from what was called an opioid crisis to an overdose,” said harm reduction activist Britt Carpenter, director of the Philly Unknown Project, a homeless advocacy group. He says the pandemic has reversed the progress made in recent years in reducing opioid dependence.
Carpenter walks the streets of the Kensington neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania trying to help homeless opioid users. “This is a fairly young demographic of suburban users in their 20s and 20s who come to the city to live on the streets and use drugs,” Carpenter told Voice of America. “Over the past 18 months, some of the streets in the area have re-filled with people.”
In August, city workers and Philadelphia police cleared two large homeless camps in Kensington, where officials said hundreds of people lived and several drug overdose cases were reported.“The world of outreach and recovery is already fine now,” Carpenter said.
In Philadelphia County, illegal fentanyl was present in more than 80% of drug overdose deaths in 2020, according to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). In September, the DEA issued a public safety warning in which Americans warned of an alarming rise in mortality and the availability of counterfeit prescription pills containing fentanyl and methamphetamine.
“Drug dealers, both here and abroad, are increasingly using counterfeit pills to package and distribute the poison, which is illicit fentanyl,” said Thomas Hodnett, acting special agent in charge of the DEA’s Philadelphia branch. Law enforcement officials say most of the counterfeit pills entering the US come from Mexico and China.
US health officials believe that overdoses and addiction rates have skyrocketed in the past year due to the pandemic ban and the availability of potent drugs.
“I know many people who have made progress in their recovery and then got sick again,” Arman Maddela, a recovering drug addict, told Reuters. Maddala, who lives in San Diego, California, lost his temper last year and started using heroin and fentanyl. “Being alone and isolated in your living space without any reason for leaving home is enough for someone to struggle with addiction, to converge and bury themselves in a hole,” he said.
Harm reduction advocate Carpenter agrees.“The only isolation from prohibitions. The pandemic made it difficult for people to personally attend support group meetings or visit their therapists. ”
With many of the restrictions on the pandemic easing this year, more drug counseling programs have reopened personal services. At the same time, American medical researchers are working to develop new treatments for opioid dependence with further hopes of reducing fatal drug overdoses.
The first vaccine to be tested in the United States against opioid abuse disorder is currently in clinical trials. The vaccine will create antibodies that prevent opioids like oxycodone from reaching the brain and subsequently disrupting the person’s breathing. Serum can be administered in combination with other opioid-based medications used to treat addiction.
“The vaccine, lasting several months, could help many more people recover from addiction and potentially protect them from overdose death if a patient relapses,” said Sandra Comer, professor of neuroscience at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons.research is underway.
With billions of dollars spent on the coronavirus pandemic, some health professionals are urging the government to allocate more money for comprehensive drug prevention and treatment programs.
“We need to make sure that these treatments are available and that people with addiction have easy access, because this can reduce the risk of death by 50%,” said Alexander. “We know this is possible because millions of Americans today are recovering healthy and successful lives.”

About the camp:
Star City opened its doors
On the first day of June – Children’s Day – a summer city camp was opened at the gymnasium.
Five detachments, more than one hundred children, united the shift “Star City”. The guys in the next three weeks will have a rich and interesting program.
Head of the camp Elvira Anatolyevna Stupak, senior counselor Vera Nikolaevna Konovalova headed the work of the “Star City”. In each team, three teachers will work with the children. The adults tried to think over the work of the camp so that the children spent the first month of summer with benefit, filled with good impressions, and gained strength after the school year.And the first day, according to tradition, began with a general exercise and was marked by a trip to the drama theater for the play “Mitiny of Discovery”, going out to the Apollo garden and other interesting and useful things.
On June 1, the school camp was opened.
I have been going to the city camp for several years, but I never knew the camp program in advance, and therefore every new day feels like a surprise. So this year, on the first day, a surprise was made to us. We went to the drama theater for the play “Mitin’s Discovery”.
This performance raises the topical issue of teenagers’ dependence on gadgets. The main character, the boy Mitya, lives in the computer world, not knowing the real world. Parents take the most severe measures – they exile Mitya to the village to his grandmother Anya, or simply – babana.
Mitya understands that there is also a real world, more complex than a straightforward computer world. Mitya begins to understand what friendship is, how, it turns out, it is interesting to live in the country. Mitya meets his orphan relative, Marishka, who does not have enough attention, since the babanya is busy with the household all the time.The boy decides to make Marishka happy by giving her (for a while) his parents.
The performance was very interesting and funny.
Kirill Balakov, 5th detachment
On June 1, a school camp was opened. The first day was very stressful for me, because I did not yet know where we were going, what would happen to us. But I still liked the first day, because there was a lot of interesting things.
In the morning I played checkers with the guys and won.And then we went to the drama theater. There was a play called “Mitya of Discovery”. It is about a boy who played in the computer for days on end. In order to wean him from this bad habit, his parents sent him to the village to his grandmother Anya. She had a favorite goat, Manya. But one day this goat escaped, and everyone went in search of her. At first Mitya was afraid of everything in the village, and then he got used to village life, and he even liked it.
After the performance, we walked in the school yard, played football with the guys from the squadron.Then we went to an event on traffic rules, which was held for us by Lyudmila Anatolyevna Sandalova.
Then we had a delicious lunch. The day turned out to be fun and interesting.
Andrey Malyshev, 5th squad
In front of me is a yellow bear cub – Winnie the Pooh. He came with me to the gymnasium from the Apollo Park. They gave it to me there for my help, when after the performance with the whole detachment we went to the park for a walk.
There were many children at Apollo that day.We managed to take part in a master class on acting, painted with crayons on the asphalt, took part in the game “Policemen and Hooligans”. The most interesting and useful thing for me was to learn the techniques that professional artists use when they play in performances or act in films.
I am very glad that with my squad I found myself on this sunny summer day – Children’s Day – in the Apollo Park.
