I travelled to Kirgizia back in '92 to the Lake Issikul,recommend it to

I almost forgot to thank F&P for having created a brilliant place where
people like me can read about other such people who have an intrest in the
Former Soviet Union and it's peoples.  There is no longer an "Iron Curtain"
but there is a curtain which separates the majority, the "Dollar Curtain"
from the majority in the West, but thanks to technology and access to the
internet and such organisations as F&P, those boundaries can also be
crossed.  Although I havn't been in Russia since '95; I still part of me

Hello Friends & Partners,

I would like to invite you to visit a new section here on Friends &
Partners, Unique
Soviet Souvenirs and Relics.  We are located under Historical and
Military Memorabilia in the Commerce/Business section of Friends &
Partners.  We literally search the world over for collectibles from the
former Soviet Union.  Our most popular items are Orders and Medals, many of
which are made of precious metals such as Gold, Silver, and Platinum.  And,
these are not all Military Awards.  The Soviet Union was one of the few
countries to give High Awards and Medals to their civilian population.  In
fact there is a whole series of Gold and Silver Orders and Medals given
exclusively to mothers.  Please take a moment to check out these beautiful
and highly collectible relics of a bygone era.  Happy Collecting.

Best Wishes,

Donald and Larisa Kakretz

quite a bit of web searching for information on Russia and the former
Soviet Union.  I have never found a site as well done as this one.  Keep up
the good work.  I am a 35 year old American with a wife and 3 children.  My
great grandparents are from Russia and I am very interested in learning
more about what life for might have been like had they not come to the
United States.  I would very much like to travel to Russia someday.  Thanks

Good Morning ALL!

It's Wednesday at 10:45 & I am here in Florida missing my family &
friends, so thought I would zip along a sample of what I'm working on.
Would love to hear your response(s).  Feel free to share with anyone
else you think might be interested.  More forthcoming & available.

Here are a few thoughts (still under revision) from different chapters
in my new book, BELIEVING IN CHILDREN:

**************From Chapter 1, Keepers of the Earth-Dream

            If we view children as keepers of the Earth-Dream, life
changes for us.  We feel differently about our role in the world.  We do
not downplay children; instead, we cherish them & encourage them to
share their unique qualities:  to wonder, feel, imagine, see daily
miracles.  Our role:  to help children evolve.

***************From Chapter 3, Extra-Ordinary Beings in our Midst

           Things are revealed through a deeper nature for children, as
though they are in touch with the core of Human-Nature, emerging from a
silent bond with the complex life-forces of the Earth.  They behold
common things & feel awe where we stand closed-off.  Their minds are
fertile with vast powers of  imagination;  startled by a night sky, they
stand in reverence without trying.  They are interwoven with the Earth,
living proof that being alive IS hallowed.

**************From Chapter 4, A Sense of Wonder

           Children embody humility in the presence of Earth.  Night
skies are vast, tumultuous:  luminous with pinpoints of angelic glow.
Shadows are living things.  It's as though children breathe the rarefied
ether of other realms, of dimensions of life that engulf us without our
knowing.  The impossible is dreamable.  the dream appears real; and,
therefore, IS.  The line between imagination & reality has never been
thinner.  In fire, flame-images dance in dreamlike rhythms.  In a stone,
ancient days are still alive.

**************From Chapter 7, The Right to Dream

          We must allow children to keep their days & nights charged
with energy & enthusiasm. There are times when we intrude, make life
strange & difficult with adult demands, forcing children right out of
their worlds, into ours, canceling all beyond OUR awareness.  We must
help children gather their findings, see connections, praising them all
along for their content & spirit of inquiry:  what they have found is
what we have overlooked.

*************From Chapter 5, Children of the Information Age

           We want children to know OUR information.  We want to inFORM
them.  But, too much information deFORMS, so we must teach them how to
discern, set priorities, understand circumstances, real-IZE context.  If
we don't, they will not sort & balance the information that streams to
them across their lives.

************From Chapter 11, Inter-Action as Momentum for Growth

           Do we tell children their own knowledge is valuable?  Do we
take the time to really see the world as they see it?  We praise them
for good grades, but what aobut their own SENSE of things?  Do we praise
them for verbal links, visual perceptions, imaginative grasps?  What
about the knowledge they have of life, THEIR insights, their own weaves
toward patterns of meaning?

*************From Chapter 12, The Roller Coaster of Adult Life

           What children see & hear of our world does not make sense to
them.  There are showers of questions.  Life is NOT always fair.  There
IS pain & suffering.  The bad guy does sometimes get away.  The needy
don't win the lottery.  Daily life is laced with a psycho-logic that
escapes our detection:  with lies, half-truths, assumptions & beliefs
handed down, passed on.  Children offer us other forms of being alive,
of dwelling on the Earth open to mystery & magic, entrances to truth.

           Well, that's it for now.  Hope you like that sort of
thinking.  Obviously I do.  It's what I believe in the most!  Many of
these thoughts were first presented in "seed form" in my book, COMPUTERS
& YOUNG MINDS:  Educating Children for Life (Datamost, Inc., 1984) & in
related articles published in INSTRUCTOR, ELECTRONIC EDUCATION, THE
COMPUTER TEACHER, & PRISM INTERNATIONAL.  A more recent version appered
in "Dare to Be Childlike" (Joyful Child Journal, 1995).

           I hope to hear from you when time allows you to share your
space!  Thank you for being a part of my life!!!!!!

            Good cheer,

I am an archaeologist and journalist working in a weekly news magazine,
in Turkey.
In January, I  saw a news at AA (anatolian news agency). But it
was an incomplete story so that I couldn't satisfy and reach to the base of
it. It was about the excavations in the city of Taraz, in the south of
Kazakhstan, made by the Kazakh archaeologists.
The story was telling about a recently found mini oil refinery dating to
the 7-9 th  centuries. And also saying that the chief of the excavation
team was Darken Baytov. The story was not including the name of the
institute, or the name of the
university and anything...
If you know anything about the story or the address of Mr. Darken Baytov (I
don't know even if he is archaeologist or what) I will be very pleased. I
am waiting to hear from you as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance.

>From the book,
Understanding Russian Banking
Russian Banking System, Securities Markets, and Money Settlements
(ISBN: 0-9645464-2-6)

Unit 7. Securities Markets in Russia


Nevertheless, it is important to understand the semantic meaning of what we
are saying to each other, so our interpretation and conclusions remain
consistent and compatible.  This unit contributes to that objective by
presenting the thought process behind the development of Russia's
securities markets and the terminology employed in describing financial
functions.  To the careful reader it makes clear that the functions which
are described, are identical to their economies and that only the
designations vary according to local custom.  Our objectives and methods
remain uniform.  In our own way we are all talking about the same thing.
There is nothing to correct.  There is only something to grasp and
understand.  ..  In that sense, this book will be an eye-opener for
international investment bankers as they visit with Russian bankers on
these pages.  If it servers this function, it should shorten the length of
negotiating time for all parties.
