Accommodations at Avon Old Farms School
Avon Old Farms School offers a structured learning environment for students. While Avon enthusiastically makes available a variety of supportive resources for students, it is not a special needs school and is not equipped to provide individualized educational programs for students with severe physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities. The School does comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and is willing to implement or make reasonable accommodations to its practices, policies, and procedures in order to meet the needs of students with documented learning or behavioral disabilities. However, accommodations must be reasonable and must NOT fundamentally alter the academic program at Avon Old Farms School. All students, regardless of disability, will be held to the School’s standards for academic achievement and personal conduct.
Accommodations May Include:
- Extended time (50%) for quizzes, tests and exams

The Faculty at Avon Old Farms School supports students in the use of accommodations as long as they advocate for themselves. Securing accommodations at Avon is a student-driven endeavor.
The application process for accommodations:
Submit all documentation of a disability to the Director of the Learning Center by August 1st. Documentation must include a current psycho-educational evaluation (administered in the past three years) and be in accordance with those guidelines issued by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
The academic deans, learning center directors, and school psychologist will consult on all requests for accommodation.
If the request for accommodations is approved, the Learning Center, with appropriate consent, will inform individual teachers of a student’s disability and the accommodations that have been authorized and approved.
There is a separate process to apply for accommodations on all standardized testing, such as the SAT/ACT. A documented disability does NOT ensure accommodations on standardized testing. Refer to the College Board Website or contact Marie Delnicki, [email protected] com, for additional information.

Old Farm School History | Wintonbury Historical Society
EARLY EDUCATION IN CONNECTICUT
The earliest constitution of Connecticut mentioned that children should receive “a good education. By 1700 a law was passed that towns of 70 families or more must maintain an English school for the entire year, and smaller towns for a half year.
By 1717 each parish was required to raise taxes to support its own school district. Wintonbury Parish, established about 1735, maintained, one or more schools from its earliest beginning. This site had a log schoolhouse, used also for community activities, before this brick building replaced it in 1796. The log building was used for church services in 1734, during the period when winter privileges were granted. The old log schoolhouse was sold in November, 1815 for $3.43.
In this early period, school records were kept with the records of the Ecclesiastical Society of the Church. Schools were in fact under the control of this society during the Federal period, (until about 1795).
A document in Windsor’s records assured that the triangle of land on which the school was built would remain forever dedicated to community use.
FARM SCHOOL BUILT
In 1795 land in Ohio which had been owned by the State of Connecticut was sold for $1,200,000 and with this money a trust fund was established with proceeds to be used to support the schools of the state. In 1965 the principal had grown to $2,151,000 and it was the oldest trust fund administered by the state treasurer. In recent years the fund has been dissolved.
By 1795 Wintonbury Parish consisted of seven school districts, each with its own building and its own school committee, which was empowered to, levy taxes within the district for the support of the school.
Each school committee would hire teachers, furnish fuel and supplies, and enumerate the children of school age. A “Committee of one” and a clerk were elected to serve for a year, responsibility rotating among the men of the district. (Incidentally, I couldn’t find the names of any women on Bloomfield’s school committees until Mrs. L. H. Barnard was elected in 1923.
The money for teachers’ pay was furnished by the state school fund. This school fund could not be used for building or maintaining the building.
In May, 1796 the following ad appeared in the Connecticut:
“The subscribers wish to contract for the building of a brick school in Wintonbury 35′ by 22′. Any person wishing to contract to furnish materials and complete the building is desired to call on, the subscribers before the 30th of May who will pay them money for the work.
Wintonbury, April 20, 1796
The school was completed before the end of the year, with Miss Hannah Latimer the first teacher.
This very symmetrical building may have been a Christopher Wren design, the plan purchased from his collection. The building was made of brick and was two stories high although the upstairs was not used in 1796. The entrance door was in the center of the building and there was a fireplace at each end. If you look carefully at the outside you can see in the bricks the outline of a door which was later replaced by a window. Also, you will find that the bricklayers used two patterns of bricks on the exterior walls. The back and front of the school are Flemish bond and the ends are common bond.
The building was heated by fires in each of the two fireplaces, with wood contributed by the students, each with a quota of about 3/8 of a cord of wood. Scholars sat on benches facing the center of the room, boys on one side, girls on the other.
If you could climb to the belfry you might find the date which was carved on the bell, 1796. The bell was contributed by Frederic Bull, a public spirited man who lived on Blue Hills Avenue. This was the first bell in town and it was rung to announce the public functions, church services and funerals. By coincidence, it was first rung to toll the funeral knell of the donor, Mr. Bull.
A school account book for 1803 showed: “Pay Wealthy Thrall $25 for teaching 25 weeks.
The school clerk’s book dated Nov. 1, 1804 named Desetheus Hubbard treasurer. It was voted in 1804 that school should continue four months from the start.
In 1809 it was voted that each scholar bring in 3 ft. of wood, delivered within one week after the beginning of the school year or the “child shall be debarred of the common use of the fire. “In 1812 it was voted that “maple wood not be accepted.”
One finds progress everywhere. In 1815 a brick stove was installed and one fireplace was eliminated. The brick stove was paid for in 1819 by computing the number of days each family sent children to school. The assessment was about 6 mills per scholar per day.
In 1824 a lock was purchased for the door. (There was only one door during the time the building was used as a school.) In 1826 the door was moved from the center to the location where it is now. At that time a partition was built to create a vestibule cloak room and a wood bin.
Not until 1839 was the school referred to as the “Farm School” rather than just the “brick school.”
In 1805 Nabby Eggleston received $l.00 per week teaching the summer session. In 1814 Augustus Allyn received $20.00 per month for the winter session, and he boarded himself as opposed to ”boarding around.”)
SECOND FLOOR CLASSROOM ADDED
At one time the stairway to the second floor was located outside the building. When you go outside you can look at the side wall and see where the original door to the second floor has been bricked over. The inside staircase was built about 1843.
In 1829 it was voted to finish off the upper room for the older “scholars”. (Students, (pupils) were referred to consistently as “scholars”.) As you look around the room you will note that the desks and seats were built right into the floor. These desks that you see today are the original desks. Note where some of them have been removed, leaving holes in the floor.
The next year, 1830, the two teachers were Miss Griswold and Elizabeth Clark: Of course, earlier there were sometimes two, teachers listed, often, one teaching the summer session and one the winter session, each session lasting, about four months.
About :l867 use of the second floor classroom was discontinued. One note suggested that the flooring had become unsafe but some who attended the school just before it was closed mentioned that the upstairs was again used as a classroom as recently as 1919.
You will note that for desks used almost 40 years, there are few carvings, as you might find in later, classrooms. If a student marked a desk: the parents had to pay a fine. Money was well respected, and students knew that parents did not always “spare the rod”.
We have an attendance book from 1867. Miss Nellie Farr taught the winter session, with 46 students listed, 26 boys and 20 girls. For the summer session, May to September, Miss Emma Phelps taught 35 students, 13 boys and 22 girls. The older boys had responsibilities on the farm and did not attend the summer session.
One of the students listed was Hattie Hoskins, age 8 in 1867. If you look carefully at the wall you can see where she wrote her name. We saved her signature when the room was restored.
Records show that some of the teachers had a custom of setting aside the small blackboard to record the first flowers of spring and the name of the student who first brought each flower to school.
In 1922, Blue Hills School on Rockwell Avenue, grades 1 through 8, was completed and the Farm School was closed. First and second graders from the Farm School joined older children who had travelled by trolley to the Center schools. Miss Beatrice Farnhm, the Farm School teacher, became the first grade teacher in the Blue Hills School.
During the time the building was used as a school it was also used for community activities, for meetings, for neighborhood gatherings, as a library.
When the Farm School was no longer used as a classroom it continued to be used by the public. The American, Legion and the Legion Auxiliary met here from 1931 to 1971. The building was still at its original site and the Legion added a small kitchen to the back of the building.
REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES
Old Windsor records show that the original triangle of land on which the school was located was deeded to be set aside forever for the use of the community. When the State wanted to, widen School Street arrangements were made to exchange this triangle for land across the street. The Wintonbury Historical Society raised money to have the building restored at the new site. Thanks to Richard Bartlett and others, the school has been placed on the Register of Historic Places.
The first step in the moving process was to repair the building. The whole front exterior wall had to be repaired before the building could be moved. Originally, the upstairs wall was two bricks thick and the downstairs three bricks thick. Only one layer was left standing. This had to be restored before the building could be moved. Bricks were loose or missing; the flooring had to be shored up, the chimney repaired and the school internally braced.
Excavating and grading work at the new site was started in September, 1976. Richard W. Bartlett, architect and then president of the Wintontbury Historical Society, planned and supervised the move. Under Mr. Bartlett’s supervision, Boy Scouts sifted through the soil at the original location. Some of the artifacts that they found are shown in the display box upstairs.
The school building was moved in October, 1976. It remained on steel beams until bricks and brownstone placed on the foundation were built up to support the building. Then the steel beams were removed. Interior renovation had to be postponed for several years until the Society raised money to continue the project.
It wasn’t until 1987 that the first floor of the school was restored and opened to the public. The Wintonbury Historical Society raised the money with contributions from community businesses and organizations, various individuals in town and from the Society itself. Matching grants were also made available. We hired Herman Marshall to complete the restoration. In 1989 we were able to complete the second floor, again with the advice and talents of Mr. Marshall, who considered the second floor classroom a real treasure.
The bricks used in the hearth were recovered from the lower section of exterior brick and displayed here. The numbers you see on some of the bricks are the count of brick in the batch. They were formed and stacked in an arch and the fireplace built underneath. The darker, harder bricks were those dried nearest the heat source, and the pale (softer) bricks were farthest from the heat.
NAMES FROM THE PAST
The first teacher was Hannah Latimer, daughter of Captain George Latimer, (sometimes spelled Latimore.) She later married Jeremiah Woodford. Descendents Hannah and Jeremiah still live in Bloomfield, the Woodford family, right here on School Street.
Joseph L. Barber, who taught in 1865, became a famous lawyer and lecturer.
Some notes say that Smith W. Tolles, later a Methodist minister, was a teacher at the Farm School, but I did not find his name listed. Possibly he taught in another of the seven, later nine, school districts of Bloomfield.
Arthur L. Ulrich taught in 1880 and 1881. He graduated with the first class of Morse Business School of Hartford. He became Secretary of Colt’s Patent Firearms. Born in 1858, he died at age 83.
The last teacher in this school was Beatrice Farnham. Beatrice was listed as graduating from eighth grade in Bloomfield in 1914 and she started teaching in September, 1918. Miss Farnham later married Russell Noyes who was a Junior High teacher in town. He left the school system but she continued teaching at Blue Hills school until her retirement.
The most noted pupil was Virginia Thrall Smith. Maps of 1855 and 1869 show that the Thrall family had a farm on School Street, where the Laiuppa family now live. Mrs. Smith was a noted humanitarian, much involved with the City Mission in Hartford, later the Children’s Aid Society. She used her influence in the formation of the Home for Crippled Children, now Newington Children’s Hospital. She was the mother of Winchell Smith, playwright.
In 1988, some Farm School alumni spoke to the historical society about their remembrances of the school. You might know some of them: Margaret Fuss Bierkan, Anthony Donatelli, Albert Berch, Frances Lindquist, Jack Goldberg, Nicholas Saracino, Walter Christensen and Arthur Hube.
We have a list of the students attending the Farm school in 1867, also a fairly complete list of past teachers.

The financial institution timed the launch of the educational program to the Day of Knowledge. Therefore, from the beginning of September, everyone will be able to join a unique project from Rosselkhozbank, which will allow participants to get acquainted with new ideas and opportunities for launching and running their own business in the field of agriculture.
The program has already started its work in the largest regions of the country – Novosibirsk and Moscow regions, in the Stavropol Territory and the Republic of Bashkortostan.The Ministry of Agriculture of the country took an active part in the development of the educational project. As well as regional authorities, educational communities, educational institutions and clients of the financial institution.
The main goal of the project is to provide comprehensive assistance to the population in the work related to the development of their own business in Russian villages. The program specialists will train not only beginner entrepreneurs, but also farmers with many years of experience.
The organizers of the Farmer’s School are confident that a single educational platform will help entrepreneurs to unite and create a truly profitable business.Also, the project will allow gaining new knowledge, increasing the level of competence in the field of agriculture. The bank fully covered the costs of training the first group of students. It included 100 participants.

For each region, individual directions of the courses of the program were selected. So, in Bashkortostan and the Novosibirsk region, farmers are taught how to make marbled beef and cheese. For the participants in the MO, lectures and practical exercises were prepared on the collection of beekeeping products, preparation of products from goat’s milk.And also classes on planting potatoes, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries.
In the Stavropol Territory, courses will be held on sheep and cow breeding, cultivation of tomatoes and cucumbers in the open field and greenhouse conditions all year round.
Training sessions combine theory and practice. The participants of the School of Farmers will receive theoretical knowledge on the basis of higher educational institutions in their region. The courses will be read not only by teachers, but also by specialists from Rosselkhozbank.
The practical part is carried out with the direct participation of regional representatives of large business.Also, participants will be able to learn from the experience of the country’s leading agricultural producers.
The total duration of training is about 2 months. At the end of the educational process, course participants will prepare their business plans. They will also receive documents from the state sample in the direction of agriculture and will be able to start their own business.
The bank’s project became the first platform in the country, thanks to which it was possible to combine the capabilities and resources of large business and farmers, regional universities and governing bodies, together with the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.

90,000 A new kindergarten school in the village of Yuganskaya Ob passed a public acceptance – Ugoria TV
supports HTML5 video
Construction of a number of educational facilities is nearing completion in the Nefteyugansk region.The first of them will open a kindergarten school in the village of Yuganskaya Ob. They have been waiting for this event in the village, because in recent years children have been forced to study at the local House of Culture. It is planned that they will move from the adapted premises to a modern building already in this quarter.
Through the fault of the builders, a new kindergarten school in the village of Yuganskaya Ob appeared a couple of years later. The change of an unscrupulous contractor, alterations and elimination of deficiencies at the facility – all this took time. And since the old building had already been demolished, the educational process had to be organized in the House of Culture next door.Today the school is almost ready to receive children. Its opening is scheduled for the last quarter, but some of the guys have already managed to get acquainted with the conditions in which they have to study.
Diana Karpacheva, student of the Ob-Yugansk secondary school:
“I liked the way the different corners are arranged. For example, there is a chess corner, a sports corner, a corner about the Youth Army. Lucky for the children who are now in the first and second grades, because they are lucky enough to study at this school.I will not be able to study here for a long time, but I will be glad to spend at least a year here, because I am delighted with this school. ”
In a small village with a population of 1,500, the new school is now the main attraction. During the public reception, local residents were sincerely happy for the younger generation. The building fully meets modern requirements – in addition to spacious halls and classrooms, there are reading, assembly and sports halls. The latter, by the way, is the largest among school children in the Nefteyugansk region.There are many plans associated with it.
Nadezhda Farukshina, director of the Ob-Yugansk secondary school:
“We want to restore such sports clubs as volleyball and basketball. We are also planning joint work with the population. Previously, in the old school, the population was allowed to come, there were teams of adult volleyball and basketball players. The outdoor playground is also gorgeous, it allows you to play football, outdoor table tennis, everything is equipped there. ”
A modern catering unit is also equipped.Here they will prepare not only for 130 students, but also for 80 kindergartners. After all, secondary and preschool educational institutions will be located in one building. Moreover, not only local kids are welcome in the kindergarten. The object solves the priority problem for the neighboring village of Ust-Yugan.
Galina Lapkovskaya, head of the Nefteyugansk region:
“There will be one settlement in the Nefteyugansk region, where parents will not be able to send their children under one year old to a preschool. But we hope that we will cope with this task by the end of the year.Today a kindergarten for 120 children is being built in the village of Singapore. The investor promises to commission the object by September. ”
Several educational construction projects are being completed in the Nefteyugansk region today. A little later than in the Yuganskaya Ob, the opening of the school is expected in Salym. There is now the largest share of children in the municipality involved in the second shift – 30 percent. However, after a major reconstruction, the buildings in the village will completely switch to a one-shift study mode.

90,000 How Old, Rural America Disappears: A School That Has Become a Chicken Coop | Frontier and Wild West
Once upon a time in these places in the northwest of Kansas bison grazed and Indian tribes roamed, then the bison were exterminated, and the Indians were moved to the reservation.For some time this piece of prairie was empty, until in 1887 several families of German emigrants settled here, looking for free land at the most reasonable price. The new farming community was named Angelus.
Life was difficult without any supernatural comforts. As Fred Bixenman, 100-year-old Angelus, recalls, his parents bathed their 8 offspring in the same water in a tin trough and the water remained warm only while the first two children bathed. Nevertheless, people lived and worked here, raised children, of whom there were enough by 1921 for the state authorities to allocate funds for the construction of a brick, two-story school building.
For the next 70 years, Angelus School experienced ups and downs along with the entire Kansas hinterland. The “fat” 20s, when the residents built a brick Catholic church with a high spire with their own money, gave way to the depression of the 30s, then the rise of the 40s, and then a slow extinction due to droughts, dust storms and the alluring glitter of the “big cities”.

Angelus School in the 1930s
In the spring of 1999, the last students left the Angelus school, and in 2000 the empty, public school building was purchased for $ 1000 by Rolo Evers, an eccentric native of St.Taxco, Kansas, where he settled with his wife. As Evers’ 70th daughter, Mrs. Nielsen, recalls:
This was what my father did, he bought and lived in schools.
While the Evers couple lived at the school, they made a real home out of it with many bedrooms for grandchildren and children who came to visit. Home performances were held in the gymnasium, and the kitchen and living room were on the second floor. However, despite such a homely idyll, Mr. Evers was not at all concerned with maintaining the building in proper condition.Over time, the roof leaked so much that it was necessary to put barrels under the leaks to collect water.
Living in a crumbling house became problematic and the old Evers family moved to another location, putting the school up for sale. The building was empty for several years, until in 2015 it was bought by 41-year-old Mr. Rumback, who himself attended the school as a child and lived in the house next door. Apparently, Mr. Rumback is a hardened cynic and, as they say, “a purely business man”, he found the school building the best, in his opinion, use, namely, made a stable out of it, where he contains goats and chickens.

Locals who graduated from Angelus school are very annoyed by the sight of grazing goats in the schoolyard and hens looking out of class windows, however, they can do nothing, private property. Mr. Ryburn, who is not known in the district other than our Cowboy, admits that it is “very difficult for him to remain polite” with Mr. Rumback, he points his finger in the direction of “school” and says:
Nobody wants to live next to this!
Mr. Rumback himself admits that his decision to turn the school into a barn has caused some local residents a pain in the ass.He built a wall that partially limits the view from the dirt road that runs through the center of Angelus. There is a sign on the fence, on which, in large print, perhaps as a joke, the following is written:
This property is protected by weapons and God. Enter without an invitation and you’ll meet both of them!
Three years ago, Rumbek, obviously tired of the sour faces of his neighbors, moved to a larger village and put his house up for sale. In 2021, a buyer appeared who expressed a desire to buy Rumbek’s house and did not mind the neighborhood of chickens and goats.
26 local residents of Angelus admit that the transformation of the “temple of science” into a barnyard or something similar was expected, since when the building was put up for sale, absolutely anyone could buy it and for absolutely any purpose.
Local feuds over the abandoned school are part of a broader process – America’s small towns and cities degenerate into nothingness.
The Chapman Center for Rural Research at the University of Kansas has calculated that since 1854, when the federal government opened the territory of Kansas for settlement, several thousand settlements were created, received unique names, and then disappeared into oblivion.
For example, the Volga Germans, who founded Libenthal in the 70s of the 19th century, erected a wooden cross that served as a temporary church, even before they built residential buildings from turf. Fewer than 100 people now live here, about a third of the town’s population in 1940.
Bodaville once had enough people to staff a local baseball team and had enough head of hair for a local barbershop to thrive. But the town was unable to survive the combination of tornadoes, fires and the shutdown of the railway line.In the town of Orange, the last building was demolished ten years ago and its brick fragments are now kept in a small metal urn on display at the museum.
P.S. In the original article there is a very curious life hack inserted as a remark characterizing “Cowboy” Rayburn:
As the children grow out of their red, white and blue cowboy boots, Mr. Ryburn puts them upside down on the fence posts along his property, claiming that the human smell from the boots scares off coyotes.90,020 90,000 Top modern games for those who are devoted to the old school
Many of us who were fond of video games in childhood have not been able to grow out of our beloved Doom, The Sims or Baldur’s Gate, still preferring to the current fresh with cool graphics those same tube games recorded on CD-RW by a generous classmate. Especially for such people – our new selection.In it, together with VOKA, we talk about relatively new video games that can replace your nostalgic projects from childhood.
Corsairs (2000) and Sea of Thieves (2018)
In the case of the Corsairs and the Sea of Thieves, the similarities are not entirely straightforward. In terms of genres, these are quite different games: the first is a historical RPG with elements of economic strategy and action, the second is a multiplayer MMO with a cartoon style.They are mainly united by the pirate setting and, more importantly, the spirit of adventure that comes with it – the opportunity to feel like a pioneer plowing the vast seas at a time when there were still many blank spots on the world map.
In Sea of Thieves, you will not be able to develop your character, as in an RPG, and the ship has only cosmetic improvements – this is done in order not to reward experienced players with an extra advantage. But there is still something to do here: you can become an emissary of one of the trading companies, look for treasures and destroy forts filled with animated skeletons, complete story quests with difficult puzzles, fight with a Megalodon, Kraken or other players.Moreover, Sea of Thieves encourages real pirate behavior: here it is often advantageous not to engage in open combat, but to unite with a third party or deceive rivals in a clever way (to get on the ship while a friend is talking to them in a voice chat and blow up a powder keg – and this is just one of the options).
It is important to clarify that Sea of Thieves is a game exclusively for a group of friends. The ship’s control system here is made in such a way that it is best to work with it together: one turns the steering wheel, others raise and twist the sails, the third stand behind the cannons, waiting for the enemy ship to catch up with the side.In addition, the game has an incredible ability to create unique situations: either your ship, completely loaded with treasures, is suddenly suddenly attacked right next to the outpost, then the Kraken suddenly appears when you least expect it, then you suddenly meet people from the other end of the world, trying to pass together especially difficult quest. It’s much more interesting to experience all this with friends.
Fallout 2 (1998) and Disco Elysium (2019)
The Fallout series itself after the second part has changed a lot: now it is not an isometric RPG with turn-based battles, but a three-dimensional action RPG, where shooting is often more than role-playing (at least in all numbered episodes of the franchise – New Vegas in this sense is worth somewhat aside).But once it was possible to go through the entire Wasteland without firing a single bullet, and solve absolutely all issues with the help of ingenuity and well-pumped charisma. Or, conversely, make the character so stupid that he is allowed to pass without question at all checkpoints.
Fans of the classic parts of the series can only be content with endless clones, with varying degrees of success exploiting the aesthetics and a kind of humor of “those” Fallout: you can remember the Atom RPG, and Encased, and some Underrail. But we suggest taking a look at Disco Elysium – a game without the Wasteland, post-apocalyptic monsters and the combat system itself.This isometric role-playing game, more reminiscent of an interactive postmodern novel: its whole point is in the elegantly written dialogues and the plot, whose development is very difficult to predict.
The main character here is an alcoholic policeman who wakes up in a dilapidated room of a small hotel. He does not remember his name or rank, his weapon and identity card have disappeared somewhere, and then a colleague from another department suddenly arrives and says that they actually need to investigate the murder. There are no backstories and long prologues – the player is thrown right into the middle of the story, where you yourself will have to find out all the circumstances of what happened and basic information about the world around.And all this in the skin of a hero who constantly conducts a polyphonic internal dialogue with himself and can die at the most inopportune moment.
Doom (1993) & Dusk (2018)
Doom, of course, still has sequels coming out, but modern Doom: Eternal already looks more like some Quake or Bulletstorm than the original parts of the series. Luckily for everyone obsessed with retro shooter, there are also fanatical indie developers, alone or in small teams, trying to recreate the aesthetics and gameplay of their favorite childhood games.Dusk is probably the best example of such a project. A modern shooter that looks and plays like it was made by some unrecognized genius back in the 90s, and then suddenly rediscovered in 2018.
There are no obtrusive cut-scenes, staged shots and, in general, the plot as such. The player immediately appears in a dark basement with two sickles, angry opponents with chainsaws run at him without any warning. Dusk immediately indicates all the important rules: you need to move a lot, look for weapons, cut and shoot, and the only goal is to get to the end of the level, killing all the crazy cultists, monsters and other evil spirits that are trying to kill the main character.
Lone game designer David Schumansky could just copy the work of everyone’s favorite Doom or Wolfenstein 3D – and many retrogrades would be enough. But he very competently fuses the ideas of classic shooters with his own, makes a stylistic and gameplay upgrade to all those games that he himself obviously admires. His Dusk is not occupied with imagination, each level here tries to surprise with something: whether it be a new gameplay concept, an unusual enemy (like invisible monsters leaving blood trails on the floor) or a crazy design of creepy farms, catacombs or the underworld itself.
Gothic (2001) & Kingdom Come: Deliverance (2018)
Love for “Gothic” is one of those that goes against everything rational – and that is why it is especially valuable. A technically imperfect RPG, where the player is not spared at all, they are forced to understand the mechanics themselves and look for quests where, due to one wrong action, the whole story can go downhill – now it would be called game design miscalculations. In the 2000s, it was a classic RPG, which is especially loved (and this phenomenon has yet to be understood by someone) in the post-Soviet space.
It is not surprising that a kind of replacement for Gothic was eventually made in the Czech Republic, a former socialist republic (and this is if we forget about the Polish “Witcher”, whose creators were also inspired by “Gothic”). Kingdom Come: Deliverance repeats many sins of the legendary RPG: it is not easy to figure it out, some mechanics are rather controversial, it takes a long time to accelerate, and the main plot in it is not as interesting as everything that happens around it. Not to mention a bunch of technical problems, which, however, have already been fixed since the release.
But the advantages of games are similar. The story of the blacksmith’s son Injrikh, whose parents were killed by the army of King Sigismund of Hungary, is needed only to send us on a free voyage through the fields and forests of medieval Bohemia, where anything can happen. Moreover, the world actively reacts to the player’s actions: due to dirty, untidy clothes, other characters may have a bad impression of you (and vice versa), each task in Kingdom Come always has many solutions, and in order to survive, you need to eat and sleep on time.This is a full-fledged simulator of life in the Middle Ages – and even some angularity of the game is perceived as an intentional creative decision. After all, life in Bohemia in the 15th century, too, most likely, was not sugar.
Baldur’s Gate (1998) and Divinity: Original Sin (2014)
In 1998, the first Baldur’s Gate revolutionized the RPG world by combining gameplay mechanics with systems from the Dungeons & Dragons board game. It gave the player control of a whole squad of characters and an open world, where the possibilities, maybe not limited only by fantasy (as it works in D&D), but still absurdly wide.It is not for nothing that until now, 23 years later, when there are games that are much more pleasant to the eye and advanced in terms of technology, people are still launching the original parts of Baldur’s Gate, and many developers are trying to repeat retro RPGs from the nineties.
Larian Studios, the creators of the Divinity series, are among the best at this repetition. In Original Sin, there are no systems from Dungeon & Dragons, the battles here are turn-based, and instead of a squad, there are only two characters whose relationships are completely dependent on the player: they can be hostile, friendly or even romantic.But even with all the external differences, the game perfectly conveys the unlikely feeling that your actions really affect the on-screen fantasy world – and not only thanks to the scripts prescribed by the developers.
Fans of Baldur’s Gate should try Divinity: Original Sin, if only because now the fate of the cult RPG series depends on Larian – after the success of its original series, the studio is now developing Baldur’s Gate III. It will be interesting to see what colors the ideas of the old school will play in the hands of people who grew up on them and were able to successfully rethink for their own projects.

Farmer technopark created in Bokhan district
A farmer from Bokhan district has brought back to life the rural outback, revives agricultural production and dreams of a new village.Step by step, he creates a technopark in the village of Buret, for which smart equipment has already been purchased. This year, the peasant farm started the construction of a mill.
“Jacuzzi on wheels”
Today the village of Buret, which until recently was considered unpromising, has become a place of bold agricultural experiments. Smart production, unusual for the Russian hinterland, was organized by farmer Vyacheslav Lizin with his team. Four years ago he came to Buret and stayed here forever.
The head of the farm set himself an ambitious task – to revive a specific village, give people jobs, and attract young people to work on the land.
For four years, the new peasant farm has not just stepped far forward – it has jumped by leaps and bounds. Once upon a time there was a wasteland on the site of the farm base. The plow has not touched the Buret fields for 25 years. Today, 3.8 hectares of wheat, over 200 hectares of oats, 270 hectares of rape are sown here. More than a hundred hectares are planted with flax.In total, more than 4 thousand hectares of land are under cultivation. Buckwheat will be sown in Buret from 2020.
The manager of the farm Elena Ubaydullaeva says that the farm has already started harvesting alfalfa, processed 600 hectares of fallow. Specialists are assembling a weighing machine to receive machines from the field. It will be equipped with electronic scales and a control system.
Last year, modern seeding complexes were purchased from the farm, new grain sorting and drying equipment were launched.
Elena Ubaydullaeva is happy to show new products and tells in detail about their parameters, capabilities, advantages.
All new equipment was purchased with borrowed loans. A lot of money has been invested (at the price of a downed Boeing, the farmer jokes), but it’s worth it. The productivity of the new technology is ten times higher. For example, a six-meter seeder can sow 35 hectares per shift, that’s all – the ceiling. With the help of the new complex, 40–45 hectares are qualitatively sown per shift. And the uniformity of seedlings and their ripening depend on the quality of sowing.
– The new sorting plant proved to be excellent in business, – continues Elena Ubaydullaeva. – This spring we already worked on some seeds on it. A gas dryer is also a good purchase. We put wheat in special sleeves with high humidity for storage. And then they dried it even at minus 15 degrees. They dried the grain and preserved it perfectly …
The sorting complex is designed to work with all crops – wheat, oats, flax, rapeseed, peas, buckwheat and other plants.Sorting has removable sieves of different calibers, which are easy to change. The sieves are made using a weaving technique that allows for gentle sorting without damaging the seed coat.
High-precision technology allows to carry out three degrees of cleaning – primary, secondary and calibration of seeds by weight. Seeds of the same weight and strength, as a rule, give a good harvest.
What is important, the new sorting works almost silently, while the old – the domestic “Centurion” – rumbling mercilessly.To avoid deafness, people worked with powerful headphones. By the way, they worked at the “Centurion” for only a week. Now the farm is in litigation with the supplier.
The new sowing complex has excellent characteristics.
– The land this year was not completely prepared, in places it was not plowed up, – Elena Ubaidullaeva recalls. – The new seeder worked the soil by itself, sowed it to the required depth. The seeder is easy to set up – you can sow from 1.5 kilograms of seeds to infinity.Mineral fertilizers are applied immediately with sowing. You can also adjust the depth of the soil cutting.
The new German sprayer for the chemical treatment of fields also helped a lot. “Jacuzzi on wheels” , the men call it. The sprayer proved to be excellent on night shifts – each zone, each nozzle is illuminated, which is why the fields were processed around the clock.
The invasion of locusts and meadow moths was total, the crops were simply blackened by insects.With the help of smart technology, we managed to cope with the misfortune in the shortest possible time – 20 hectares of fields were processed in 18 hours.
The machine operator Alexei Lipskikh is not overjoyed at the new equipment.
– The tillage complex simultaneously performs several operations. This is not the same as before – you remove the plow from the tractor, you hook the discs. Now there is no downtime – no need to change the attachments. Hundreds of hectares per shift can be done.
– How did you learn to manage with smart technology?
– A representative of the company lived with us for a month, taught the men how to use it …
From Dream to Realization
The ideologist of the technopark project has huge plans.He curls up his fingers.
– We will continue to develop crop production, grow grain and fodder crops. The priority is the cultivation of oilseeds: rapeseed, flax, mustard, and others. In the future – growing vegetables: potatoes, carrots, beets. We are preparing to join the regional program for the development of vegetable growing and have already entered the program of reclamation activities.
The peasant farm plans to drill a well for the next year and test the irrigation technology. In parallel with this, seeds of elite potatoes will be grown.
This is the logistics of creating an agricultural technology park. According to the plan of the farmer and his team, this will be a high-quality variety testing site with the production of highly productive seeds.
Concrete building blocks were delivered to the base. Here begins the construction of a mill – the first production facility of the future mill.
– This will be a small production. First, we will put a mill for processing, including durum wheat “Yunnata”, – says Lizin.
The capacity of the mill is 15 thousand tons of grain per year. Local farmers have already shown interest in the new project.
– We unite, life forces, – says the farmer. – If I offer 2 thousand tons of grain for sale on the market, I am nobody for a buyer. But if 20 thousand tons – it will be another conversation, on different terms.
The boundaries of the mini-mill have already been drawn – this is a room 36 by 24 meters, with an office and modern equipment.
– We will organize the production of premium flour, first grade and whole grain – bran, – the head of the farm enumerates.- The second line – a shop for the production of cereals.
Having created a powerful fodder base, Vyacheslav Nikolaevich plans to start breeding beef cattle – Heriford and Aberdeen Angus. There is a plan to create a pedigree reproducer with the maintenance of one and a half thousand heads. This idea today is at the stage of coordination with the regional Ministry of Agriculture. The farm has its own slaughterhouse with a capacity of 180 heads per day, and there is also a meat processing line.
Components of success
Precision farming is the only correct way in the development of agriculture, says Vyacheslav Lizin.In peasant farms, automated accounting and management systems are used, which can significantly save resources and reduce the cost of agricultural products.
The drone survey creates a 3D model of each field. The agricultural enterprise operates with full IT support.
Software products allow you to take into account the condition of the soil, the amount of precipitation, the quality of seedlings, their density, and identify problem areas of the fields.
Telemetry systems are also used on the farm – all machines, mechanisms, trailed and mounted implements are equipped with various control sensors.This system allows the operator to choose the optimal route, using special programs, it takes into account the amount of fuel and lubricants, the amount of work performed, equipment downtime and much more.
The enterprise not only relies on its own strength, but also participates in all kinds of programs under the regional Ministry of Agriculture.
14 people are working on smart farming fields. All, with the exception of one, are local, from Bureti.
– Our team is permanent, many have returned to the village from their jobs from the city and work in our farm, and this, I think, is an indicator! – says Vyacheslav Nikolaevich.
Lizin’s people don’t drink from the word “at all”.
– This is the Bible, says the farmer shortly.
One of the commandments of peasant farms is to fulfill their obligations to suppliers and employees. And also help to those who need it …
Recently, a farmer supported the residents of the flood-stricken Tulun by sending 15 tonnes of feed grains to personal subsidiary farms. KamAZ, loaded to capacity, has already returned empty. Another 70 tons of grain have been reserved for private household plots in the flooded city …
