This is our New Year tree on the main square called Lenin in Yakutsk, Siberia / Russia. A photo was taken at 12:10 pm.
Cold? Foggy? Looks festive? Ho ho ho, this is our winter holiday mood. That’s the coldest city on Earth!
As far as you know, Russia celebrates the Happy New Year holidays mostly. According to the Russian Orthodox Church calendar, Christmas takes place on January 7th. Actually, it’s not a big event. Worshiped by church goers only, though it is a good reason to have a day off.
So, when you see a tree, that looks more like a Christmas one, you know now, it’s the New Year tree.
Have great holidays, folks! Though I know your Christmas is already over.
I am really glad to share the following news. I have reasons to do it. First, my Internet is very slow. Second, my Internet is 3G.
Russian wireline operator TransTeleCom (TTK) plans to launch a fiber optic line in the city of Yakutsk, capital of the constituent republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in December, Alexander Borisov, deputy prime minister of the region, told reporters on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
The launch of the fiber optic line will help to decrease tariffs on Internet access services and increase data transfer speed in the region, Borisov said. «We have been waiting for a fiber optic communications line to come to the capital of our region for many years,» he said.
A couple days ago ‘again:)’, I was talking about languages of indigenous minority-nationalities of the North, Siberia and the Far East in ‘the House of North’ with the most well-known representatives of their mother tongue.
I was blown away by the wide variety of languages used day-by-day in one place for a week. It looks like the event (with extension like ‘culture’) is becoming more important for many people that need to start to learn their language deeply and broadly. Large amounts of native speakers from Yakutia — one big aim — to popularize the culture itself.
In ‘the house of the north’ where I’ve met so many nations, have heard so many sounds and have seen so beautuful people from Siberia. All people that were singing, dancing, talking and it happened on a completely different dialects but one big fact really united them — the word ‘small’.
Of course, there’s one more important ingredient: the culture itself behaves amazingly. That is, when two or more languages are sounds around you used in all its minutes details, they bring your mind into the wonderful instance that it is actually — language. Read the rest of this entry…
A few words about Sector of foreign literature in the Scientific library of the North Eastern Federal University named after M. K. Ammosov.
Systematically organized collection of worldwide known magazines and authentic books utterly surprises you at the first sight when you enter this room – that was my first impression as an eager reader in the Scientific library of NEFU.
“The New York Times”, “Scientific American”, “Newsweek”, “The Economist”- such a range of best publications in the periodicals and original books of famous and not very famous foreign writers as well, in the distance of several steps to us, that was a big impact for me. So, how about the New Yorker? That’s not the problem; you can find it just typing on the browser of local computer machine where I’m typing this article, too, for future readers.
Does people in Yakutia play football? Definitely, yes. Moreover, we’ve got Yakutia Football Club (wiki), that play in the Russian tournament in the Second Devision, and even children’s football school that prepare new players.
Oh, my son, Aidar, by the way, started his training in the major children football school. I am so happy.
Take a look at the photographs of kids’ first training on the major Tuymaada Stadium in Yakutsk, Russia, that took place two days ago.
We blog about the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the biggest & coldest region in Russia's Siberia. Also known as Yakutia. My honor to have been born and live in such a beautiful land! ~ Bolot.
