Miami Social’s second episode “Single in Sobe” premiered last night on the Bravo channel.   The episode explored the friendships and rivalries of the members of one of Miami’s Premier Social Circles, as the tensions in their relationships began to mount.   Russian ladies Maria and Lina featured heavily on the show this week, as Maria – a single mother and fashion photographer in South Beach, Miami prepared to send her 13 year old daughter, Angelika to a Swiss boarding school (pictured).   Meanwhile Lina, the fiery Russian girlfriend of Circle member George, came back to the United States after an impromptu trip to Saint Barthélemy, a French collective in the Caribbean. Lina works for a high-end real estate developer and is frequently pulled away to attend functions with little notice, much to George’s dismay. This has caused significant disagreements many times in their relationship and caused significant strain throughout the episode, culminating in a breakup before a party at the end of the episode.   Miami Social has once again dipped into the strange and surreal world of Miami’s social elite, illustrating the sunny days and endless nights of the fashionable over-30 set in Florida’s most infamous city. While showing this, Miami Social also gives us great insight into the lives of Russian immigrants to the US with these two working professionals.

Vice President Joe Biden met with Ukraine President Viktor Yushchenko In Kiev Tuesday to voice support for the country's NATO bid and its embrace of the West, but the conversation was not all serious geo-political business, judging by the pool report. While sitting around a pub in the late afternoon the conversation drifted -- inevitably? -- to the topic of churches... and beautiful women.   VPOTUS and Yushchenko were seated a table in the back of the pub with their two translators, the mayor and vice mayor of Kiev, and the head of the presidential secretariat. Pool joined conversation in the middle, but Yushchenko was talking about Ukrainian churches. VPOTUS overheard saying: "I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn't say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That's my observation." Unclear who Frenchman VPOTUS was referring to. "It's certain you have so many beautiful women."   See the beauty of Ukrainian Women for yourself Source: Huffington Post

Natasha: It was God’s will to bring me to this agency. I learned about it from a church friend. The agency has become very close and dear to me so quickly. I could not always make it to there to check my correspondence due to my work schedule, but I was so happy whenever I did get such opportunity. I always looked forward to visiting the agency and reading my letters. My most cherished dream had been to have a real family, a family who would love God. Robert is a marvelous, caring man who shares my faith in God. His emails and chats were so special to me. It felt as if we could continue talking forever. When Robert came to meet me, I was impressed even more with how thoughtful and considerate he was. He has combines the best of human traits, they are his nature. His heart is like the most precious diamond as it radiates love. Robert is God’s gift to me!   Robert: I can hardly convey on paper the emotions I have had meeting Natasha. This has certainly been the time of my life. I must be the luckiest man to have found her.

Margarita: I would like to tell you about a miracle that happened in my life. I met an amazing Christian man; the man I have been looking for for so long. I thank God for the opportunity, for His help and His blessings. If God is in your heart, you will not be in need of anything and you will always be protected. Every person should thank God for everything he or she has in life. I am also thankful to the people at my agency. Their care, consideration and professional attitude have been a great support in my search.   Bobby: I would like to thank all those involved for the assitance of my meeting Margarita. I felt in my heart that Margarita was a special woman through our letters to each other. For me to come to Ukraine alone took some time and I had some reservations about coming so far to meet someone for first time but everything since my arrival has been good. Margarita was more beautiful than her pictures and just as beautiful as I hoped she would be in her inner beauty. I have grown more fond of her everyday that I have been with her and feel very comfortable when we are together. I believe we are a match with the same vision in life. Thanks to all in making this happen.

40 years ago today, Apollo 11 successfully landed the first man on the moon. This American achievement was monumental, but it would have never happend if the Russians had not fueled the race to space. Two days after the United States announced its intention to launch an artificial satellite, on July 31, 1956, the Soviet Union announced its intention to do the same. Sputnik 1 was launched on October 4, 1957, beating the United States and stunning people all over the world.   For a dozen years before the moon landing, the Russians racked up an extraordinary array of superlatives. It was the first to send a craft into orbit, with the Sputnik satellite in 1957. The first human to go into outer space was Russian Yuri Gagarin in 1961. Moscow sent the woman into space, Valentina Tereshkova in 1963; and Alexei Leonov was the first person to venture outside a spacecraft into the endless cosmos, in 1965. Russia even got to the moon first when the unmanned Luna 2 crashed in 1959. But the drama of the first human footprint on an extraterrestrial body eclipsed everything the Soviets had worked so hard to achieve.   The Soviet space program pioneered many aspects of space exploration. Here's a list from Wikipedia:   1957: First intercontinental ballistic missile, the R-7 Semyorka 1957: First satellite, Sputnik 1 1957: First animal to enter Earth orbit, the dog Laika (pictured) on Sputnik 2 1959: First firing of a rocket in Earth orbit, first man-made object to escape Earth's orbit, Luna 1 1959: First data communications, or telemetry, to and from outer space, Luna 1. 1959: First man-made object to pass near the Moon, first man-made object in Solar orbit, Luna 1 1959: First probe to impact the Moon, Luna 2 1959: First images of the moon's far side, Luna 3 1960: First animals to safely return from Earth orbit, the dogs Belka and Strelka on Sputnik 5. 1960: First probe launched to Mars, Marsnik 1 1961: First probe launched to Venus, Venera 1 1961: First person in space (International definition) and in Earth orbit, Yuri Gagarin on Vostok 1, Vostok programme 1961: First person to spend over a day in space Gherman Titov, Vostok 2 (also first person to sleep in space). 1962: First dual manned spaceflight and approach, Vostok 3 and Vostok 4 1963: First woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, Vostok 6 1964: First multi-man crew (3), Voskhod 1 1965: First EVA, by Aleksei Leonov, Voskhod 2 1965: First probe to hit another planet (Venus), Venera 3 1966: First probe to make a soft landing on and transmit from the surface of the moon, Luna 9 1966: First probe in lunar orbit, Luna 10 1967: First unmanned rendezvous and docking, Cosmos 186/Cosmos 188. (Until 2006, this had remained the only major space achievement that the US had not duplicated.) 1969: First docking between two manned craft in Earth orbit and exchange of crews, Soyuz 4 and Soyuz 5 1970: First samples automatically returned to Earth from another body, Luna 16 1970: First robotic space rover, Lunokhod 1 1970: First data received from the surface of another planet (Venus), Venera 7 1971: First space station, Salyut 1 1971: First probe to orbit another planet (Mars), first probe to reach surface of Mars, Mars 2 1975: First probe to orbit Venus, first photos from surface of Venus, Venera 9 1984: First woman to walk in space, Svetlana Savitskaya (Salyut 7 space station) 1986: First crew to visit two separate space stations (Mir and Salyut 7) 1986: First permanently manned space station, Mir, which orbited the Earth from 1986 until 2001 1987: First crew to spend over one year in space, Vladimir Titov and Musa Manarov on board of TM-4 - Mir   Sources: LA Times, Wikipedia

Restaurant Dejavyu We would like to introduce you with a very nice place where you can relax, try Ukrainian food and spend wonderful time with your friends. Our suggestion is Restaurant Dejavyu in Nikolaev. Let us start by staying that from the moment you will walk through the door you know you are in for a treat. Coming from America you will be pleasantly surprised to have an attendant take your coat while the more than attentive hostess will seat you. You will be more than amazed at the collection of "Cold War Era" memorabilia. It is so interesting to be able to see what folks on the other side of "The Fence" had to think about the west.   Seating is very comfortable and promotes wonderful conversation. Waitresses bring large wonderful menus full of Ukrainian and other Eastern European delights.   One cannot visit without sampling the Borsh with Pampushki. Absolutely amazing!!! Another delicious treat are the dumplings. They are stuffed with potatoes or onion or beef and dressed with sour cream. Appetizers, salads, and drink selections are also plentiful. We must recommend any and all of the juices; these are something without comparison in the US. While here be sure to sample as many different kinds of vodkas as you can handle J there will be plenty of opportunity for sampling during your evening and your visit. We must insist that you try the honey pepper flavor, it may sound scary but it is well worth it.   The restaurant Dejavyu is located in City Center complex , so there are a lot of other attractions close by to keep you busy and entertained. A casino and billiard hall make for an exciting after dinner entertainment. There is also a fine cigar shop located in the complex, which by the way can sell you Cuban cigars. A large supermarket with many choices of groceries and supplies can keep you satisfied for anything that you may need to purchase. A large Mall is also located here, you can even buy a nice pair of Levis blue jeans here J High end Electronics and sports apparel is also widely available here.   We hope this helps in making a positive impression on your research when you are thinking about visiting Nikolaev, a truly wonderful and inviting city
