Vladimir Nabokovs museum attacked

first_imgRussian Ultraconservatives have struck again in St Petersburg, where a museum of famous writer Vladimir Nabokov was attacked over ‘paedophilia’.A lone vandal broke a museum window with a bottle that contained a note which threatened the museum with ‘God’s wrath’ over its alleged propaganda of Nabokov’s paedophilia, Fontanka.ru city news website reported. The museum received a handful of anonymous letters with similar homilies over the past months, its director Tatiana Ponomaryova said. Police were looking into the incident. St Petersburg-born Nabokov is best known for Lolita (1995), a paedophile’s story, but was never accused of child abuse himself. A separate anonymous letter reportedly mailed to Fontanka.ru identified the attacker as the leader of a group of self-styled ‘St Petersburg Cossacks’ who earlier mounted non-violent attacks on the city’s cultural establishments. A one-man show based on ‘Lolita’ was cancelled in St. Petersburg by its author last year after he received threatening letters from the anonymous Cossacks. The city prosecutor’s office was also flooded with dozens of identical reports in December accusing an exhibit at the Hermitage museum by British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman of extremism over ‘blasphemous’ crucified toys on display. A prosecutor check found no evidence of extremism. The Chapmans offered ‘extreme apologies’ to whomever felt offended, and the Hermitage’s director demanded an investigation into the complainants, to no visible result. But the Cossacks have now decided to employ ‘non-Christian’ virtue enforcement methods, which prompted a split, said the letter to Fontanka.ru, whose author identified himself as belonging to the moderate non-violent group. St Petersburg never had a native Cossack community, and other Cossack groups across the nation have denounced the actions of their alleged northern brethren. However, other Cossacks have also attempted to act as a conservative militia, patrolling streets of Moscow against illegal migrants, peddlers and parkers, and attacking modern art exhibits in the southern Krasnodar Region, a Cossack heartland. Non-Cossack Christian activists have also attacked in Moscow a sex museum and supporters of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot.last_img read more

Calls In Space

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals August 11, 2006 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Entrepreneur magazine, April 1999Late last year, Vice President Al Gore placed the world’s first call on a satellite phone handset. From the White House, Gore dialed up Dr. Robert Ballard, the research scientist and deep-sea explorer who discovered the sunken Titanic in 1983. After nearly a decade of hype, and plenty of failed experiments, satellite telephones have finally arrived.Just what are satellite phones? In look, feel and operability, they’re nearly identical to conventional cellular phones. But as any heavy cell phone user can attest, conventional cellular phones and even sophisticated digital wireless phones have limited capabilities. You can use them only in prescribed areas, and if your cellular phone carrier doesn’t offer service in that area, you’re out of luck.Satellite phones provide service anywhere, any time to any user. They send their telephone signals to satellites orbiting the earth, which then transmit them to other satellites that beam them down to their final destination. They allow you to make a call from a mountaintop, your car, or even from the Oval Office, if you have that kind of access.Costs are about 10 percent more than conventional cellular service–but for entrepreneurs who always have to be in touch, the expense may be worth it. Currently, American Mobile Satellite Corp. and Motorola are among the companies that offer satellite services.Gene Koprowski has covered the tech industry for 10 years and writes a monthly computing column for “The Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition.” Contact him at 74203.1677@compuserve.com 2 min read Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more
