“The teeth we have enough”

the Day of victory of Russian national team on football over the Spaniards came in the all-Russian Olympic day. Thousands of Russians across the country celebrated this festival of sport, and in the capital Park “Sokolniki”, gathered famous Champions and their young pupils to inspire idly strolling citizens and to convey the winning of the Olympic energy of the Russian players. Judging by the results of the match, they got it. Reporter “the Tape.ru” visited the place and was tested in a dozen sporting disciplines.

“I hope to win… I Want beautiful football to fight. I do not want “single-zero”. I want our guys fought to the end, but only by the rules. The Spaniards, in the end, no more “red fury”, as they were before. Teeth we have enough,” — shared his predictions and hopes Alexander Lesun — champion of the Olympic games 2016 in Rio De Janeiro in modern pentathlon.

July 1, Alexander said in Sokolniki in the circle of friends and fans not only of the XXIX all-Russian Olympic day, but its thirtieth anniversary. As expected, this Sunday none of the conversation is not complete without football.

in the Morning it seemed that due to heavy rain, there was no celebration in the open air will not work at all, but exactly at 11 o’clock, when an hour before the official opening of the Olympic charge, the clouds parted and the hot sun quickly dried out the area for all kinds of activities, which on that day at the big Fountain of the square was a lot.

Passers-by thanked the “gods of the world Cup” for the opportunity to spend time in your favorite Park.

Test for knowledge of the substantive anti-doping rules — here’s how to start offered to the guests of the Olympic quest. Many here have learned that athletes can check countless times a year, and been involved in doping scandal doctors it is better not to communicate.

Then surfing, but rather a test of skill to keep balance on the training Board, hoisted on a round cushion and looking at the photographs cutting through the ocean adventurers.

“One mistake and all, kopec!” — a woman whispers in his ear boy, saladeprensa at the pictures.

“Oh, okay” — he answers.

a moment later — boom — next to the Board falls the tall man. He get a napkin from the kit to wipe down the abrasion on the elbow. The kit — requisite to the next “attraction”, where skills of rendering first aid and resuscitation.

Lip dummy wipe namochennoy vodka napkin (where the same without vodka!). “So, wrap mouth mouth was sealed, slightly raise the chin, stop up his nose and takes two deep exhalation, — says the instructor. — Now find the middle between the solar plexus and the upper border of the sternum and push. Jerks. The elbows do not bend. Okay.”

Five minutes of resuscitation and in the gym do not have to go. But then there is the opportunity to take a break and even energize — hockey table. Here you can “robotica” two on two or the whole family. Children, however, to turn the model with the metal spokes get bored and they start doing it yourself. But toy hockey players stand firmly on your toy the ice and petty vandalism can not be.

Through the wall — a mini-Curling track with real game stone and brush. Close to it turned out that this is still not a brush, and MOP as horsehair for such devices no longer apply. Free lesson with everyone and holds no one else but Julia Portanova — the champion of Europe and Russia, bronze medalist of the world Championship.

“Curling is better to start from 12 years, not before. You need to get stronger and to Mature. It’s not a very dynamic game. It requires a lot of patience and attention,” — says Julia.

But for adults this game can be quite interesting. You can come with friends and create a team. “Know a lot of people already acting in the Championships of Russia, which initially was just going to play in the principle: “Well, guys, let’s go we are going to play?””, — said the girl.

to Move a cylinder of polished granite weighing twenty pounds of artificial ice in spite of a comfortable handle is not as easy as it seems. A “swepower” that is the man, rubbing the brush surface in front of the moving stone the most important time to get him off the road.

“Well, hurry up, I stone block, screaming, smiling, man to girl of nine, wielding his brush. — Will I have at home to train with a MOP “.

“And this stone because it is possible for someone to pin down?” — ignoring the remark, the child says.

“Why?” — asks the father.

“And suddenly throw high!” — the girl tried to lift the projectile.

“It does not throw, and push it softly. Put already says a parent, but somehow uncertainly, and then turns around in search of support. — Isn’t it?”

the Next stage of the quest — Sambo. In large tents with soft mats on the floor young, but serious and experienced fighters, teach citizens nice and safe to fall back. These guys looked kind of good — natured- pacifists next to the karate that trained bystanders valiantly and with all the dope beat the hand from the hip.

“Beat simultaneously with the production of the legs. If you have a hand — sword,” explains karate.

having Mastered this wisdom, people are going to throw a Rugby ball into the goal and it is not easy, given that the goals in Rugby are not round.

And then the ramp is for skateboarders, gathered in a circle around the fountain. The main thing is not outright to hurt himself and leave power on handball, weightlifting, fencing, table tennis, basketball and qigong.

“RUB your palms together and bring them a few inches. Feel the warmth and pleasant tingling? This is the energy (Qi in Chinese). Now take the palm of your hand on, then slide again… ” — says gathered on the lawn champion health qigong Victor PhD after a five-minute group warm-up. His face for hours smile that somehow scared.

every movement of brightly dressed Sterlikova closely watched dozens of pairs of eyes. “Yes, in your pajamas in the subway don’t ride. Although not hot,” says the master class, one of the spectators her friend, standing on the sidelines.

immediately at Fountain square has built a small hill for bobsledding. The sled, put on wheels, I roll on the asphalt right out of the van. “Don’t worry, you will be caught,” says a smiling, bearded young giant-bobsledder approached the van beautiful girls.

“Oh, I need to get caught” — then, looking him in the eye, responds to one of them.

In the boys and girls tried not to waste time. Sport, but the main thing — communication. This atmosphere, when guys are wrestlers, Rugby players, fencers, tennis players — were interwoven in a fun dancing and laughing tangle, it seems, is the very atmosphere of the Olympic movement, a strict formula where the stage was trying to get famous athletes who are now officials.

“For many years, experts in the field of sports trying to give a precise definition of Olympism, reminded the four-time Olympic champion and the head of the Russian Olympic Committee Stanislav Pozdnyakov. — Although there are the Olympic Charter, which States that Olympism is a philosophy of life, which is expressed in the quest for balance of body, spirit and mind, her ultimate goal is a comprehensive physical and spiritual development of a person, when such qualities as speed, agility and power are organically combined with moral education and the will to win”.

According to Champions, the philosophy of Olympism in society performs a peacekeeping mission and this is the reverse side of the fight for titles and records. “If ever our warring political leaders have visited the Olympic village, looked at what there is peace, the spirit of the sports partnership and the healthy spirit of struggle, they would be surprised” — sums up Alexander Lesun.

“my father was dragged from one section to another. All this shouting, screaming: “Come on. It is very necessary!”, — said Nikolai — one of the residents, accidentally caught in Sokolniki on Olympic day. And in the end, I never got caught. Sorry? No. For the Olympic games, watching, working. What else? But the son himself drawn into the fight. In Sambo. We even tried to dissuade him with his mother. Saying that injuries would be to drive back refused. What? So he is now a candidate master of sports”.

the Fate of the athlete and the fate of every other man’s unfathomable and unpredictable. But it has steps, which anyway are all. According to Yulia Portonovo, one of them is the transition from juniors into the category of adult professionals. At this stage, due to problems with motivation from the sport leaves a lot of talented young people. And universal recipe for solving this problem does not exist. This has already been said to the representatives of Russian business, those who for many years engaged in the development of national sports.

“I had a friend Valeri Borzov — Olympic champion in 1972 in Munich athletics — said the state Secretary, Vice-President of Norilsk Nickel Vladislav Gasumyanov. — When he was given another award, one of the members of the Politburo Vladimir Shcherbitsky asked: “Valera, and what are the stadiums you have in the village, in the area that you achieved such success?”. He replied: “No. Every morning, I got up and ran in the meadow”. I want to say that it is unlikely we can find or import any ready-made recipes”.

Vice-President of Norilsk Nickel, like many other experts, believes that the country needs to operate the network, identifying young talents. “Young talents are rising from the earth, among them the need to find nuggets and work with them in the system of sport of high achievements,” — said Gasumyanov.

This has long been actively engaged in Norilsk Nickel, as a partner of the Russian Olympic Committee, the Night hockey League, Russian football Union, the Russian Curling Federation and many other sports organizations.

Gasumyanov stressed that a business that saturates today, the Russian professional sport with money, carries a huge responsibility and should avoid simple solutions. “Just someone to buy something and bring it impossible.So it is not done. Any athlete, any sport team grows here”, he explained.

the Most correct approach when companies are taken primarily for the support and development of those areas which are their assets, to support the families of their employees and their countrymen. And now, when the end of the football world championship is still two weeks, “Norilsk Nickel” is engaged in preparation for the next major sporting event of the world level, which the international community entrusted Russia to the Universiade of 2019, which will be held in Krasnoyarsk.

“We will do our best to the upcoming sporting events were held at the highest level. Some of them will be organized on the territory owned by “Norilsk Nickel” Fanpark “beaver log” — added Gasumyanov. And now we have almost completed all the work to match the best world standards and requirements.”

Russians make architects

a free educational training program for architects “ARCHITECTS.Of the Russian Federation” was launched on June 28. About it reported in a press release received by the editors “the Tape.ru”.

the Program was developed by the Institute for media, architecture and design “Strelka” together with the HOUSE.Of the Russian Federation with the support of Ministry of construction of Russia. The participants can learn the architectural knowledge and skills, learn global architectural trends and practices, and to build the first professional contacts.

the Training is delivered in online and offline mode. The online format provides interactive video lectures and educational materials from Russian and foreign experts. In addition, the training modules include intensives in Moscow and study tours to cities in Russia and Europe. For offline training in the competition will invite the top 100 participants in the program.

If in Europe, almost 50 percent of garbage is processed, in Russia — only 3, the remaining 97 percent of the landfills, which all have already got. We found out from the experts why this is so, as in our days recycle in European capitals and when these technologies will go to Moscow.

Collection and processing of household waste, which in the official documents used to be called “solid waste”, in Soviet times in Moscow and across the country, were organized efficiently and satisfactory. Waste the city produces so much less, and their composition was quite different: glass bottles passed in special points of reception of glass, plastic bottles have not been, on the whole, the amount of plastic and polyethylene prior to 1990 was not comparable with the current. Scrap paper collected not only the pioneers, there was a working system of points of reception of secondary waste materials, waste paper pass to get in exchange of scarce books (for example, detectives and novels of Dumas). It turned out that the garbage is pre-sorted, that is, in a natural way, and dumped it took ten times less than now.

“Many modern experts believe that the Soviet system of recycling industrial and household waste, developed in 1970-1980-ies was one of the most advanced in the world. Its advantage was in complexity, explains Professor of “Architectural science” MARCHI Peter Zhuk. — The fact that in several stages took place in the 1990s, has led to the degradation and destruction of the centralized system, which is now trying to revive. The transition from Federal control to the regional level, the violation of the hierarchical system led to a situation when collapsed the stages of collection and subsequent use of waste, which in construction, for example, as raw materials for the production of many materials.”

So today’s the realities of Moscow with a lot of unresolved questions on processing and disposal of garbage formed the Soviet system, and the dashing 1990s. then stopped the re-use of waste paper and recycling. Almost simultaneously there emerged a new culture of consumption in which the amount of garbage increased dramatically. Changed the composition of household waste, which increasingly began to meet one-time plastic tableware, plastic bottles and packaging.

“In the 1990s, separate collaborat of debris ceased, and there was a huge dump that in those years the bandit bandits and head, — says the President of the Russian ecological Academy, Chairperson of the Central Council of all-Russian society of nature protection Vladimir Grachev. Suffice it to say that it was then expanded landfills in Sound (Volokolamsk district), and near Moscow, in Kuchino, which now cause a lot of questions. Only at the dump Kuchino accumulated almost 25 million tons of rotting garbage. And when such a dump is illuminated, it becomes a threat, highlighting two weeks of 100 grams of dioxins (derived dibenzopyrene are cumulative poisons and are a group of dangerous xenobiotics). For comparison, all the four incineration plant, which in coming years will be built around Moscow, a year will provide about 0.1 gram of dioxins”.

For those 20 years when the landfill in Russia was growing despite all the regulations in Europe and Japan formed now adopted the safety culture at the waste treatment. It is a combination of the sort, “municipal solid waste”, officially called the garbage already in our days, and burning them, turning into electricity.

“I visited Barcelona in their waste-to-energy plant located in the city, at the end of Barceloneta beach, and one of the four Catalan waste sorting plants, the so-called “Ecopark 4”, — says Vladimir Grachev. — A half million population city in the year produces about 1 300 000 tons of garbage, all of it passes through these four “eco-Park”, plus 300,000 tons per year consumes the incinerator.

How is the sort? Selected nine fractions, which are recycled. One plastic, for example, are sorted into five components: bottles, packages, boxes of fruit and the so-called 3D volumetric containers like cans. And separately selected paper, glass, aluminum cans. Tetra Pak collected separately — it is a combination of paper and aluminum. In Spain and in many European countries there is a garbage sorting in the collection that allows you to directly send to the relevant contents of the plants in the alley, and “Ecopark” dismantle the so-called “fourth reservoir” — primary”.

Modern technology of recycling primarily includes the automatic rejection of 30 percent of the “useful components”, their separation and the removal of all harmful items, like batteries.

Developments, offering different ways of using these “useful components”, today there are many.

In Sweden, for example, of scrap glass make fiber and produce from it the acoustic boards for ceilings. Made of slag Portland slag cement and other construction mixtures. With the use of polymeric components obtained during the processing of plastic bottles and polyethylene, it is possible to produce a road tile, the application of which is in Moscow.

About one-fifth of the remaining useless waste is buried, overlapping the top layer of compost, of which two months preparing in the hangar isolated from biodegradable waste. On top of this aromatic cake covered with a layer of earth and planted with grass.

the Greater part remaining after sorting the garbage is burned in modern plants. Hard to believe, but from an environmental point of view, they are so harmless, what is already in dozens of cities around the world are located right in the city.

In Amsterdam this plant recycles up to 1 400 000 tons of waste per year, and to Stockholm even further waste imported, which allows us to provide virtually the entire city with energy derived from their combustion. By the way, the plant in Amsterdam is adjacent to the headquarters of Greenpeace.

a Record in this area is Tokyo, among the residential blocks which is located 22 such plant.

“the whole system of recycling in Russia is now unnecessary and ineffective, says Peter ZUK. — Thinking only about how to dispose of existing waste, we fall into the trap, because it is necessary to think about how to do to they are less formed to make them easier to collect.”

recycling and reduction of disposed garbage will partially solve the problem. Existing Moscow refineries, and those who only plan to build, provide for separate collection.

“the State of Moscow and the Moscow region today is critical, and it must urgently be rectified, — he says. Has already begun: the first thing now reclaim those dumps that are so they don’t poison the people. What is done in Sound and Kuchino that burn landfill gas is a right. There is burned is not plastic, and organic gas, that can not in principle adversely affect human health.

At the same time in the capital and in other big cities of Russia it is necessary already in the near future to ensure the separate collection, to build waste sorting plants. The resulting useful components you want to reuse, and the remaining to act as in Europe and Japan, for processing the remaining waste to build combusting plants producing electricity”.

But in order to with the advent of incineration plants in the waste processing problems in Moscow finally decided, it is necessary that these enterprises were part of a great running system.

“it is Necessary that the total cycle of waste management was designed from the beginning to the end, only then this will bring economic benefits, — commented Peter Zhuk. — Though not from high, but gradually, with great payback. No profit can not work neither the sorting nor combusting plants. And without a sound overall system to establish it will not succeed.”

it Seems that in the coming years, we will see how such a system is built. In early June, during a regular direct line of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, answering the question of volunteers, has promised that in the next six years the country will build 200 modern plants for waste disposal.
