Gaddafi’s bodyguards
Often called Amazon Guard, they were female elite bodyguards of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Meanwhile, their official name was “revolutionary nuns”, or “green nuns”. The detachment consisted entirely of women who had received special military training. The division formed in the early 1980s, a few years after his resignation from the post of Gaddafi Libyan state and acceptance of of another title. In particular, the leader of the revolution together with the declaration of Libya’s Jamahiriya. However, the reasons for creating such a unit is unclear. According to the most common version, Gaddafi allegedly suggested that Arab terrorists, the victim of which he could be, will not be able to shoot at women. And another version, though more prosaic – female bodyguard was just one of the bizarre ways to attract the attention of the world.

Traditionally, 15 “Amazons” accompanied Gaddafi during his visits through the country and abroad. Noteworthy, in 1998 one of his bodyguards had saved his life at the cost of her own.

Kevin Richardson the lion whisper
World famous zoologist and animal behaviorist Kevin Richardson has been working with wild animals for more than 10 years. In particular, with lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas. According to Richardson, he does not use the usual methods of animal training and not trying to subjugate their will with the help of sticks and chains. Instead, he uses love, understanding and trust. In fact, Kevin has always shown an interest in all types of creatures large and small. Even from an early age at just 3, he was breeding crickets under his bed and keeping a pet toad called “Paddatjie”. He grew from a young boy who cared for so many animals to so-called “The Bird Man of Orange Grove” in his home town. Also from an adolescent who ran wild and, finally, to a man who is able to cross the divide between humans and predators.

Russian poetry – Marina Tsvetaeva and Anna Akhmatova. 

Most people interested in Russian literature and the culture of the twentieth century are familiar with the names Anna Akhmatova and Marina Tsvetaeva. However, few of them read any of their literary works. Considered two of the most talented writers of the century, they both experienced much suffering as artists and individuals in this tumultuous century.

Born on 8 October 1892, Soviet poet Marina Tsvetaeva lived through and wrote of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed it. Sadly, in an attempt to save her daughter Irina from starvation, she placed her in a state orphanage in 1919, where she died of hunger. Tsvetaeva left Russia in 1922 and lived with her family in increasing poverty in Paris, Berlin and Prague before returning to Moscow in 1939. Her husband Sergei Efron and her daughter Ariadna Efron (Alya) got arrested on espionage charges in 1941; and her husband – executed. And Tsvetaeva herself committed suicide in 1941. As a lyrical poet, her passion and daring linguistic experimentation mark her as a striking chronicler of her times and the depths of the human condition.

Differences between Viola and Violin
“As the greatest expert and judge of harmony, he liked best to play the viola, with appropriate loudness and softness.” – C.P.E. Bach on J.S. Bach. If you want to know the difference between viola and violin, then watch these videos and enjoy viola sounds.

If you are watching an orchestra concert, one way to distinguish the violins and violas is by the seating arrangement. In most orchestras, the first violins sit to the conductor’s left, with the concert master in the chair on the edge of the stage and closest to the conductor. Generally, the section extends from the conductor back towards the wings. Farther in on the stage beyond the first violins, sit the second violins. To the conductor’s right sit the violoncellos, or cellos. And between the cellos and the second violins, you will find the violas, often directly in front of the conductor in about the center of the stage.
