Systema Kadochnikova Russian Style Russian Martial Art is a system of education in human biomechanics and the study of human behavior under extreme situations. Students are guided towards introspection and exploration of their full human potential. Movement is natural and free, and acquiring skills is based on the study of Cossack and Russian folk dances, Slavic folklore, and "Natural Laws." The ancient Slavic martial traditions dates to the nomadic steppe-warriors of approximately 5,000 BCE, passed from father to son in families for generations of pre-Soviet Russia, and then only among the elite combat specialist subdivisions (SPETSNAZ) of the former USSR. Scott Sonnon, USA Sambo Team Coach and Trainer and World Sambo Vice-Champion, was the first foreigner accepted into this heritage in the attempt to bring the world together in fraternity. Sonnon imported the art to America in 1996 to improve the quality of life of his compatriots through the Russian health system, advanced sports biomechanics, and elite combative preparation. In 2000, one of the sportive derivations of Russian Martial Art, named Sambo, will be Olympic at the Sydney Games. Russian Martial Art derives its name ROSS from "ROSSIYA" which is the Russian spelling for the word RUSSIA. ROSS, a Russian acronym standing for "Russian Native Martial Art" was developed by Commander Alexander Retuinskih, President of the All-Russian Federation of Russian Martial Art (RFRMA), Chairman of the International Combat Sambo Commission, Chairman of the Russian Combat Sambo Committee, officer General of the Cossack Military. In 1991, the RFRMA was sanctioned by the Russian Olympic Committee as the sole representative of Russian Martial Art. ROSS is taught to trainers of Russian Spetsnaz units of the Ministries of Internal Affairs, Defense and protective services, Russian Marine troops, VDV, OMON, and Minsk's "Alpha" units in Byelorussia, special MVD units "Vityaz", frontier troops of Lithuania and many others. In Russian Martial Art, the main goal of a person is to render the adversary harmless while minimizing losses for both self and foe: to work efficiently in any situation. Learning Russian Martial Art, students acquire great power as fighters, but more importantly as a human beings, increasing ones value for health and life, for both self and others. Both in combat and in life, students treat other creatures with awareness and compassion. When necessary, firm action is issued, but never in a callous or careless manner, and when all other option have been considered. "Your life is not yours alone; it belongs to your friends, family and community" (Alexander Ivanovich Retuinskih), or as is said in the Cossack Cadet Code: "The life of your friend is always more valuable than your own. You can die yourself, but rescue your friend." ROSS undertakes training in 8 directions: 1.Russian-Style Close-Quarters Combat and Survival 2.Renovated SAMBO 3.Executive and Close Protection Training 4.Bayonet-Fencing 5.Advanced Sports Biomechanics 6.Acrobatic Dance, Stunt and Theatrical Combat 7.Russian System of Health and Wellness 8.Russian Fisticuffs

The Pentagon said on Thursday it was very confident that a Navy missile hit the toxic fuel tank of a defunct US spy satellite, which could have caused harm if it had fallen to Earth intact. The unprecedented strike took place over the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday after a US Navy cruiser launched a missile as the satellite sped through space at more than 27,400 kph (17,000 mph), officials said. Both Russia and China had expressed concern ahead of the mission, with Moscow suggesting it could be used as cover to test a new space weapon. But Washington said the only reason for the mission was to prevent harm to humans from the tank of hazardous hydrazine fuel on the bus-sized satellite, which was expected to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere within the next couple of weeks. "We're very confident that we hit the satellite. We also have a high degree of confidence that we got the tank," said Marine General James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, putting the chances that the tank had been breached at around 90%. He said a fireball in video images of the strike, a vapour cloud that formed and indications of hydrazine in the air all suggested the tank had been shattered. But he said it could take another 24 to 48 hours to know for sure. Falling debris "From our position, you always want to hedge your bet because there's no absolute certainty," Cartwright said. Debris from the satellite had already started to re-enter the atmosphere over the Atlantic and Pacific oceans but nothing larger than a football had been detected so far, he said. The 2270 kg (5000 lb) satellite was struck by an SM-3 missile fired from the USS Lake Erie northwest of Hawaii at 2226 EST (0326 GMT Thursday), the Pentagon said. Wednesday's operation was the first time a sea-based missile has been used to hit a satellite, according to experts. The US and the Soviet Union conducted anti-satellite tests in the Cold War but used other techniques. Low risk The operation used modified elements of its missile defence system. But officials have sought to avoid presenting this mission as a test for that system, saying hitting a satellite is quite different from trying to shoot down a missile. Some space experts have questioned the Pentagon's justification for the mission, saying the chances of any part of the satellite causing harm were extremely remote. But Pentagon officials have denied suggestions they wanted to destroy the satellite to prevent part of the classified spacecraft from falling into the hands of rival powers. "That, unto itself, was not enough reason to go after this satellite with a missile," Cartwright said. "It's the hydrazine that we're focused on." Hypocrisy charge US officials also have rejected accusations from some security and space experts that the Pentagon was using the operation to test and demonstrate its ability to hit targets in space following an anti-satellite test by China in 2007. Washington says its case is different from the Chinese test because it was announced in advance and undertaken to protect people. It also says the Chinese craft was struck at a higher altitude, more crowded with other satellites that could be damaged by debris from the destroyed satellite. A Chinese state newspaper on Thursday accused Washington of hypocrisy for criticising other countries' space ambitions while rejecting a treaty proposed by China and Russia to ban weapons in space and firing a missile at the spy satellite. The Pentagon has said the stray spacecraft was a test satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office, a US intelligence agency. The satellite launched in December 2006 but stopped communicating within a few hours of reaching orbit.

www.revolutionofpigs.com sigade revolutsioon Director: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi REVOLUTION OF PIGS cleverly blends teen sex comedy with political satire. At a Soviet summer camp, teens are more interested in the opposite sex and the latest Duran Duran tunes than in the party-line teachings of their counselors. When the skit competition becomes politicized, a new kind of revolution breaks out. Hair by Oskar Voit.Rooted in the memories and longings of its two directors and fueled by a soundtrack of classic pop, this exuberant look at youthful rebellion is set in 1986. In those days, the Estonian student summer brigades provided an annual rite of passage, during which hundreds of teens suffered through three days of camping and group activities. At night, they secretly released their repressed energy in disco and sexual exploration. However, Estonia in the mid-80s was a totalitarian state and the brigades were also used as a recruiting ground for the Russian army, then in desperate need of young bodies to fight its war in Afghanistan. When the counselors crack down on the campers, a group of dissenters performs a play called," Something's Rotten in our Country," setting the stage for a mass protest which quickly escalates out of control. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Moscow International Film Festival, the passionately inventive Revolution of Pigs cleverly blends teen comedy and political metaphor.Director:René Reinumägi Filminfo: Filmen utspelar sig i Estland och året är 1986. Landet är ockuperat av Sovjetunionen och hundratals ungdomar samlas i läger för att lära sig att bli goda kommunister. Ungdomarna är dock mera intresserade av alkohol och sex och när några i lägret hittar hundratals döda grisar bakom en grisfarm bestämmer de sig för att sätta upp en symbolisk pjäs. Teatern blir upprinnelsen till en revolt mot lägerledarna och den kommunistiska läran. "Revolution of Pigs" utvecklas till en stark politisk satir, samtidigt som den hyllar unga människor ovilja att lyda. Filmen är Estlands Oscarsbidrag i 2004. Skådespelare: Jass Seljamaa, Evelin Kuusik, Vadim Albrant, Uku Uusberg Manus: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi Nyckelord: Drama, Komedi Längd: 98 min Produktionsland: Estland Med i paket: Stockholm XV Northern Lights Originaltitel: Sigade revolutsioon Regissör: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi Utgivningsår: WATCH FILM - WWW.REVOLUTIONOFPIGS.COM

www.RevolutionofPigs.com Director: René Reinumägi, Jaak Kilmi. Pig's Let's talk about pigs. They could be either 'Babe', the Mad Max of green prairies, or the allegorical boars in "Porcile", or, even of the same kind, the pigs that lead "The Revolution of Pigs", the magnificent debut film by Jaak Kilmi and Rene Reinumagi. To try to imagine what an Estonian film would be like is the same as trying to imagine a film from Cyprus or a Somali one: there are few previous comparisons, so it is a useless effort. That is the reason why we give a complicit smile from the first shot of a film about summer camps, that reminds us of the initiation rites of puberty in films such as "Meatballs". It also gives us that sense of warm immediacy that "Fucking Amal" or "Together" provided - two features by the Swede Lukas Moodyson, with which it shares the same cheerful and unconcerned spirit, the same aims in discovery with some of the characters having the same desire to lose their virginity. It is not strange then, at the Moscow International Film Festival, where it received a surprising Jury Special Prize, that both the critics and the audience reacted negatively, maybe because, over Duran Duran's greatest hits, behind the intimacy that tents provide shining as glow-worms in the night, a time for first loves and first drunkenness, "The Revolution of Pigs" throws several tons of rotten tomatoes in the face of the old Soviet communism, which oppressed the Baltic States. Pigs mean chaos, devouring the traces of a regime that applauded with so much enthusiasm the war of Afghanistan as much as the USA is now doing with the war in Iraq. Pigs are sniffing among the garbage. Pigs are the children of the revolution and, in this fortunate Estonian film, revolution must be by the young or not at all.

Hey everybody! I am back and better than ever. Sorry for the long wait. I was extremely busy with other things and never had the time or effort to upload videos to my loyal subscribers. Well for my return video, I have a review of Dark Sector. It is a Gears of War clone. Does it live up to the hype?Dark Sector Information: The game was released on March 25, 2008 in North America, and is set to be released on March 27, 2008 in Japan and April 4, 2008 in the UK. Set in the crumbling infrastructure of a fictional Soviet-bloc country in the near future, the game features both single and multi-player action, with players working their way through a world where biological weapons are a hellish nightmare, let loose on an unsuspecting populace.The game's main character is a man named Hayden Tenno (voiced by Michael Rosenbaum of Smallville fame), a morally ambivalent clean-up man employed by the CIA. He suffers from a real-life disease called congenital analgia that does not allow him to feel pain. On a mission in a fictional former eastern bloc nation, he is exposed to a biological compound which mutates him, dramatically changing his right arm, and giving him the ability to spontaneously grow a three-bladed throwable weapon called a glaive. As explained in Game Informer Magazine, the glaive is a part of his body, can be used to generate light, and can be controlled remotely by the player.During the course of the game, Hayden encounters others that have been similarly mutated by the compound. However, the mutation process is painful to the point that its victims go mad. Hayden's congenital analgia inadvertently protects him from this aspect of the mutation.Links:Dark Sector's official website: Publisher of America's website (Publisher of Dark Sector): Extremes' website (Developer of Dark Sector): in AustraliaAustralia's Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) has banned Dark sector due to high impact violence. "The finishing moves and most violent game play includes decapitation, dismemberment of limbs accompanied by large blood spurts, neck breaking spurts, neck breaking twists and exploded bodies with post-action twitching body parts. These moves are relatively easy to accomplish and once the player has mastered the moves and is able to get close to his foes, these violent moves can be executed," the OFLC's ruling said. Digital Extremes has since announced a censored version planned for Australian release. at the moment it still remains a refused classification game. Many Australians, Including the Australian Official Xbox 360 magazine are complaining that the level of violence is comparable to other titles, such as Gears of War, that are not banned.New ZealandUnlike Australia, New Zealand will be getting a totally, uncut version of the game, due to the censorship system in that country. Typically, games are released in Australia and New Zealand and have the Australian rating where it is applicable, with some titles using the New Zealand classification sticker in cases where the rating notes are somewhat different. It is not known where the uncut version will originate.
