Here Are Some Very Strange Old Russian Marketing Posters

A poster is piece of printed paper designed so it can be attached to a wall or vertical surface. Typically posters include both textual and graphic elements, although a poster may be either wholly graphical or wholly text. Posters are designed to be both eye-catching and informative. Posters may be used for many purposes.

They are a frequent tool of advertisers (particularly of events, musicians and films), propagandists, protestors and other groups trying to communicate a message. Posters are also used for reproductions of artwork, particularly famous works, and are generally low-cost compared to original artwork.

According to the French historian Max Gallo, “for over two hundred years, posters have been displayed in public places all over the world. Visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service.”

The modern poster, as we know it, however, dates back to the middle of 19th century when the printing industry perfected color lithography and made mass production possible.

“In little more than a hundred years”, writes poster expert John Barnicoat, “it has come to be recognized as a vital art form, attracting artists at every level, from painters like Toulouse-Lautrec and Mucha to theatrical and commercial designers.”

They have ranged in styles from Art Nouveau, Symbolism, Cubism, and Art Deco to the more formal Bauhaus and the often incoherent hippie posters of the 1960s.

This Is How Russians Wrap Their Wedding Gifts

A gift also or a present is an object given without the expectation of payment. Although gift-giving might involve an expectation of reciprocity, a gift is meant to be free. In many human societies, the act of mutually exchanging money, goods, etc. may contribute to social cohesion. Economists have elaborated the economics of gift-giving into the notion of a gift economy. By extension the term gift can refer to anything that makes the other happier or less sad, especially as a favor, including forgiveness and kindness.

In many cultures they are traditionally packaged in some manner. For example, in Western culture, gifts are often wrapped in wrapping paper and accompanied by a gift note which may note the occasion, the recipient’s name, and the giver’s name. In Chinese culture, red wrapping connotes luck.

At common law, for a gift to have legal effect, it was required that there be (1) intent by the donor to give a gift, and (2) delivery to the recipient of the item to be given as a gift.

Lewis Hyde remarks in The Gift that Christianity considers the Incarnation and subsequent death of Jesus to be the greatest gift to humankind, and that the Jataka contains a tale of the Buddha in his incarnation as the Wise Hare giving the ultimate alms by offering himself up as a meal for Sakka.

Russia has the world’s largest reserves of mineral and energy resources and is the largest producer of oil and natural gas globally. Russia has the world’s largest forest reserves and its lakes contain approximately one-quarter of the world’s fresh water.

The nation’s history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD.

Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium.

The Train Graveyard

What do you think happens to all those trains that have run their course for years and then left to die. These trains are taken to Voskresensk, Russia and then buried in this graveyard for trains. People who walk through this graveyard at night may be able to hear the choo-choo’s of the train’s past around them.

Imagine the trains haunting the place at night. The graveyard has become a sort of train museum over the years owing to the number of abandoned trains that occupy the land now. A train enthusiast will find trains from all centuries and walks of life sitting on this land. Most of the trains are rusted owing to being abandoned with no maintenance at all henceforth. However, the train gods must be happy to know that at least they have a happy place to settle down at once they are done serving their time on the rails.

The Abandoned AZLK Plant

The pictures show the huge abandoned AZLK plant and how it looked in 2003. You will also see age- old rusty equipment that will never be used again. It seems like a waste of a lot of investment and time. All the furniture inside seems to be wrecked and it is obvious from the pictures that nobody has been around for a long time. Some parts are still in use as you can see the smoke coming out of the tall chimneys.

The interiors show the complexity of the operation and the empty staircases were once full of activity. The outside is covered in now and so are some parts inside the plant where the roof isn’t in the best condition. From the outside, the building seems just fine. It is only when you enter that you realize how much in need of maintenance the building is.
