MAXIM - Always and everywhere the authorities tried to isolate the rebels and troublemakers who wanted to overthrow it.

At all times, the authorities have never considered it shameful to somehow infringe on dissidents: to put them in jail, send them to hard labor, or put them in a psychiatric hospital, where citizens who were too zealous for power were made calm and pacified catatonic people. It is worth scratching any medieval European monarch with a fingernail, as he will have a dozen younger brothers, cousins ​​and uncles (as well as their henchmen), safely hidden in the dungeons of castles.

In the Russian Empire, there was an official status of a political prisoner. (In modern Russia there is no such status, but, as we have heard from human rights defenders who have not yet had time to be recognized as foreign agents, in fact, there are still such.)

Needless to say, both international and domestic law of many states considered persecution for religious and political reasons normal until the end of World War II. Only after its end and the advent of the era of humanism (as they thought then), the persecution for political, religious and social views in a decent society began to be considered bad manners. In practice, however, everything was quite different.

The five most famous political prisoners of recent times: why they were imprisoned and what happened to them.


Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

South African politician, President of South Africa

In 1943 he joined the African National Congress (ANC) party. After receiving a law degree in 1952, Nelson began an active campaign against apartheid, which is why a year later he was banned from the South African government from speaking at public events. In 1956, he and 156 other party members were accused of high treason, but four years later they were acquitted.

After the shooting of a demonstration in Sharpeville in 1960, when 67 Africans were killed during the riots, the government banned the ANC. Nelson went underground. The party leaders soon turned to armed methods of fighting against apartheid. An ANC military wing was formed, led by Mandela.

Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five years in prison. In 1964, the sentence was increased to life for preparing a coup d'etat.

For most of his sentence, 18 of 27 years, he served in solitary confinement in a prison on Robben Island, near the Cape of Good Hope. Conditions of stay were harsh: forced labor in a limestone quarry, meager food, the right to one visit and one letter every six months.

In 1990, the government released Nelson. And already in 1994 he was elected the first democratic president of South Africa.


Mahatma Gandhi

Indian politician and public figure, one of the founders of the movement for the independence of India from Great Britain.

Mahatma Gandhi

For his political activities and participation in the resistance, Gandhi went to prison many times.

He was first imprisoned in 1907 in South Africa, where he fought for the rights of Indians, organizing peaceful demonstrations and civil disobedience "satyagraha". It was for them that he was subsequently often arrested.

Returning to his homeland in 1915, he also got imprisoned several times for participating in actions in the struggle for Indian independence. In 1922, he was tried for the last time for inciting mutiny. Gandhi pleaded guilty to all charges and was sentenced to six years in prison. But after two years he was released.

Largely thanks to him, India became free in 1947.


Liu Xiaobo

Chinese human rights activist, educator and writer

Liu Xiaobo

Liu Xiaobo was first arrested in 1989 during the protests in Tiananmen Square, where he urged students to leave the square peacefully. He was convicted of supporting students and released only in January 1991.

In May 1995, he was again arrested for criticizing the authorities for six months. But in 1996 he was again arrested for three years. In 2008, after Liu Xiaobo signed Charter 08 demanding democratic reform, he was arrested and sentenced in December 2009 to 11 years in prison for incitement to undermine the government.

In 2010 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China. But the Chinese authorities did not inform him of this. And even when Liu Xiaobo found out about this, the award was never given to him.

In July 2017, he was released early due to liver cancer. The Chinese government refused to release him abroad for treatment. Liu Xiaobo died on July 13, 2017.


Vaclav Havel

Czech writer, playwright, last president of Czechoslovakia, first president of the Czech Republic

Vaclav Havel

In 1968, he actively opposed the invasion of Soviet troops into Czechoslovakia. After that, he was forced to resign from the theater, the publication of his books and the production of works were prohibited.

From 1977 to 1989, he was tried three times. The first time was in 1977, when he signed Charter 77, which required compliance with the Final Act of the Helsinki Conference. In the same year he was sentenced to 14 months in prison. The last time was in January 1989 for laying a wreath at the place of self-immolation of a Prague student in 1968. In total, Vaclav was imprisoned for about five years.

After his release, he took part in the Velvet Revolution. In 1989 he became president of Czechoslovakia. And from 1993 to 2003 he was twice elected president of the Czech Republic.


Ho Chi Minh

Vietnamese revolutionary, founder of the Communist Party of Vietnam, first President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and creator of the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam (also known as Viet Cong)

Ho Chi Minh

In the 1940s, Ho Chi Minh visited China to meet with Chinese revolutionaries, but was captured by the Kuomintang authorities who accused him of espionage. This was followed by a year and a half in prison.

During this time, Ho Chi Minh wrote the book "The Prison Diary". It includes melancholic and stoic poems calling for revolution.

After imprisonment, he continued to liberate Vietnam from the French and created a state in the north of the country.

US President Donald Trump's Twitter account was permanently suspended by Twitter the social media giant on Jan 8, 2021. (Screengrab: Twitter/realDonaldTrump)

MAXIM - US President Donald Trump has been active on social media during his tenure. Trump's Twitter was referenced by the media, it was studied by analysts and financiers, investors and traders were guided by it, and Trump's opponents several times sought to temporarily freeze their account and, after an attempt to seize the Capitol by supporters of the 45th president, were blocked forever. Forbes recalled Trump's most famous and controversial tweets and how they influenced the markets.

With his statements, Trump crashed and raised oil prices, twice brought down the stock exchange, increased and decreased the fortune of entrepreneurs. Despite mistakes and misprints in words, disregard for historical facts and rather caustic attacks towards his opponents, Trump actually showed how a word can respond, and that, as is known from the Russian proverb, “not a sparrow”. 

On January 9th, Twitter permanently blocked his account with 88 million followers. This was reported in the official blog of the company. This decision was taken by the Twitter leadership in connection with the events in Washington on January 6, when Trump's supporters stormed the building of Congress and tried to disrupt the approval of the presidential election results. 

“After thoroughly reviewing the recent tweets of @realDonaldTrump and the context around them - in particular, how they are perceived and interpreted on Twitter and beyond - we have permanently blocked this account due to the risk of further incitement to violence,” says in the message of the social network.

Facebook and his Instagram also did not stand aside and froze Trump's personal pages "for an indefinite period." Mark Zuckerberg F noted that the incumbent will not have access to accounts, "at least until the peaceful transfer of power is completed," stressing that he considers it unacceptable to use social media to "incite rebellion against a democratically elected government."

The value of shares of companies after the Trump blocking began to decline rapidly. At the close on January 8, Facebook traded at $ 267.57, at the close on Monday, January 11, they were worth $ 256.84 (a drop of almost 4%). Twitter shares on January 8 at the close of trading were worth $ 51.48, on Monday they traded at $ 48.18 (down 6.4%).

The fortune of the founder and CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey on Monday, January 11, fell by $ 843 million. According to the Forbes Real-Time rating, which is updated in real time, it was $ 12.1 billion. The fortune of Mark Zuckerberg, who lost $ 3.9 billion According to Forbes Real-Time, the founder of Facebook is now worth an estimated $ 94 billion.


Trump Index

Analyzing Donald Trump's Twitter account, analysts from the American bank JPMorgan Chase concluded that the president's tweets containing the words "China", "billion" and "goods" were most influenced by the president's tweets. They calculated a special index that tracks how the yield on US government bonds changes within five minutes after Trump's tweets, writes Bloomberg. It turned out that of almost 4,000 Trump messages, 146 had an impact on the markets, and most of all - on the yield of two and five-year US Treasuries. In addition to domestic influence, Trump's tweets have had an impact on global markets. For example, the announcement of the US President on the introduction of new duties on Chinese goods led to a sharp drop in the American and Asian indices.

Forbes recalled the most famous and controversial tweets of the 45th President of the United States, which affected the markets.


The F-35 [fighter] program

What Trump wrote:

“F-35 [fighter] program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20"(December 12, 2016)

How the market reacted

The US military-industrial corporation Lockheed Martin, which builds fighters, fell 4.2% and its market capitalization fell by $ 3.5 billion. F-35 program curator Jeff Babillon, in response to criticism of Trump, then said that the corporation has invested heavily to bring down the price of the F-35. In June 2017, Bloomberg reported that the F-35 program cost the US budget more than $ 400 billion.


Trump vs. Amazon and Twitter

What Trump wrote

"Amazon is taking a huge toll on retail stores that pay taxes honestly." (August 16, 2017)

“Long before the elections, I had complaints about Amazon. Unlike other [companies], they either do not pay at all, or they pay little taxes at the state level and below, make our postal service their own courier and drive thousands of retailers out of business! " (March 29, 2019)

“I'm right that Amazon costs huge amounts of money to the United States Postal Service, which it has on its parcels. Amazon should pay for these costs (additionally), not impose them on the US taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. Post managers do not even suspect (or do they suspect?)! " (March 31, 2018)

How the market reacted

Trump has spoken out about Amazon's online retailer Jeff Bezos F many times, but the three presidencies have caused the biggest damage to the company. The first tweet cost the company a 1.2% drop in quotations and a decrease in market value by $ 5.7 billion, the Independent wrote. The second dealt a more significant blow: in a couple of days, the company's shares fell by almost 9%, and its capitalization decreased by $ 66 billion.

On March 31, 2018, Trump again accused Amazon of misusing US Postal Service tariffs. As Bloomberg wrote, against the background of this, the capitalization of the retailer decreased by $ 53 billion.

What Trump wrote:

“Twitter has been shady banning prominent Republicans. This is not good. We will investigate this discriminatory and illegal practice immediately! There are a lot of complaints ”(July 26, 2018)

How the market reacted

Trump managed to bring down the shares of the social network by its own means of communication - after the president's tweet, the company's securities became cheaper by almost 14%. Simultaneously with Trump's message, Twitter published its financial report, which indicated a decrease in the audience in the second quarter of 2018 by 1 million people - these two factors greatly disappointed traders.

At the same time, in just three years of Donald Trump's presidency, the fortune of Twitter founder Jack Dorsey increased by almost 240%, from $ 1.3 billion to $ 4.4 billion.However, the bulk of Dorsey's income came not from Twitter, but from the Square payment system - at the time of Trump's inauguration Dorsey's stake in Square was worth $ 1 billion, but shares are up nearly 370% in three years. Now Dorsey's stake in Square is estimated at $ 3.6 billion and accounts for 80% of the businessman's assets.


Overpriced and a fragile world

What Trump wrote:

“Oil prices are getting too high. OPEC, please sit back and relax. The world cannot bear such price increases, it is fragile! " (22 February 2019)

How the market reacted

After Trump's tweet, the price of a barrel of Brent crude fell by more than 3% and dropped below $ 65, although before that it managed to rise above $ 67 for the first time since November 2017. WTI crude oil also went down: from $ 57.26 to $ 55.48.


What Trump wrote:

"I hope and expect that they will cut [oil production] by about 10 million barrels [per day] or perhaps more, which - if that happens - will be great for the oil and gas industry." (April 2, 2020)

How the market reacted

After the publication of the tweet, the markets reacted instantly: the price of a barrel of Brent crude jumped 21.52% to $ 30.38 per barrel. Moreover, at its peak, it rose to $ 36, which is 45.5% higher than the level of the previous close.

 

Trump and China

What Trump wrote:

“For 10 months, China has been paying the United States at 25% tariffs for $ 50 billion for high technologies and 10% for $ 200 billion for other goods. These payments partially explain our excellent economic results. On Friday, 10% will rise to 25%. $ 325 billion ... "(May 5, 2019)

How the market reacted

After this tweet, the capitalization of the global stock market fell by $ 1.36 trillion, and Chinese stock indices showed the maximum daily decline in three years, Bloomberg wrote. Each word out of 120 in Trump's tweet cost investors $ 13 billion.


What Trump wrote

"Trade negotiations are ongoing, and during these negotiations, the US will begin imposing small additional duties of 10% on the remaining $ 300 billion worth of goods and products that enter our country from China on September 1." (August 1, 2019)

How the market reacted

After another round of trade talks with China, Trump made a tweet that hit stocks again. American and Asian stock indices collapsed along with oil prices, while the dollar and gold rose in price. The S&P 500 fell 2.8%, Apple dropped 4.3%, Intel 3.4%.

According to Bloomberg estimates, as a result of the fall in the American market, the 500 richest people in the world lost more than 2% of their total fortune - $ 117 billion per day. Jeff Bezos lost most of all, having lost $ 3.4 billion due to the decline in the value of Amazon shares.


What Trump said:

“We are VERY close to a BIG DEAL with China. They want it, and so do we! " (December 12, 2019)

How the market reacted

The fortune of gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson, the largest sponsor of Donald Trump's campaign, surged $ 1.2 billion after the US president on Twitter announced the imminent conclusion of a trade agreement with China. The US-China trade war hit Adelson's Macau gambling revenue, which accounted for a significant portion of Las Vegas Sands (the corporation that owns the world's largest casino in Las Vegas - Forbes). After Trump's announcement, Las Vegas Sands rose nearly 4%. (Forbes)

MAXIM - A damn dozen brave heroes of their time who were obsessed with inventions - from the head of Frankenstein to the guitar of Jimi Hendrix.


Archimedes


The ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, inventor and self-taught engineer from Syracuse made a lot of discoveries in geometry and hydrostatics. In the absence of the yellow press and the magazine "Popular Mechanics" during the time of Archimedes, no articles were written about him, but legends were made, with varying degrees of success counting now among the gods, now among the madmen. His contemporaries can be understood.

The man who, with the help of sunbeams, ignites enemy ships, discovers the law of volume, lying in the bathroom, and runs naked down the street shouting "Eureka!", Which brings to mind the state of his mental health. While others were crazy about women in togas, war games and the Olympics, Archimedes was a math fanatic, forgetting food and sleep because of equations.

One of the Greek's obsessions was pi (if you name the first twenty digits after 3.14, you can consider yourself a genius and stop greeting fools). He was so carried away by calculating the formula in the sand that he did not notice how the Roman soldiers took his hometown of Syracuse. When the legionnaire approached him and stepped on the drawing, Archimedes shouted: "Don't touch my drawings!" In response, the enemy stabbed him with a sword.


Isaac Newton


It is enough to recall the fact that an apple fell on Newton's head to begin to doubt the adequacy of a genius and to understand those people who, during their lifetime, considered him possessed. It was dangerous to invite a man to visit: he immediately began to disassemble furniture around him, drill holes in the wall in order to observe the rays of the sun, and examined the master's dinner and his wife's apron under a magnifying glass.

It is not surprising that he had few friends. In 1665, a plague epidemic raged in England, and Newton decided to take refuge from it in his native Woolsthorpe. Before leaving for the village, he acquired glass prisms in order to "experiment with the famous phenomena of flowers" (apparently, quite an ordinary hobby).

Armed with a crowbar and a glass prism, he punched a hole in the shutter of a dark room and was the first in history to receive an image in the form of a strip of seven alternating colors - a rainbow. Let's skip the story of how he later wanted to put music on the light, and just applaud the obsession.


Jimi Hendrix


A man whose name has become synonymous with rock music. And this title sounds cooler than the presidential one. In 2009, Time magazine named Hendrix the greatest guitarist of all time: he has no less merit in the music Olympus than Mozart. At the age of 15, after the death of his mother, Jimi bought his first acoustic guitar and rebuilt it for his left hand, as he was left-handed. He did not know musical notation and chose melodies by ear, but it was in this cheeky self-taught self-taught "devil of strings" that he could no longer be stopped.

The guitar and the women (exactly this sequence) was the only thing that worried Jimi. And if he enjoyed the second from time to time indiscriminately, the first got the wildest passion: he played the guitar with his teeth and elbows, threw it behind his back and even set it on fire more than once during a performance. Despite the orgy that the obsessed rocker was doing on stage, he is called the first musician in history to "discover the phenomenon of the electric guitar as an independent instrument." He was able to masterfully perform rock ballads even on out-of-tune models, constantly experimenting with sound.


Konstantin Tsiolkovsky


The founder of modern astronautics, the genius of aerodynamics and rocketry, and one of the most advanced and coolest scientists of his time, was absolutely deaf. At the age of ten, being an ordinary rural boy, Kostya fell ill with scarlet fever and almost completely lost his hearing. When one door closes, another is bound to open. As Tsiolkovsky himself wrote, at that moment he felt "flashes of serious mental consciousness", began to study independently and grow a genius in himself.

Having moved to Moscow, he could hardly make ends meet: “I ate only black bread, did not even have potatoes and tea. But I bought pipes, mercury, sulfuric acid and chemical reagents for experiments. " (Do you still complain about the crisis, the scanty salary and the old "boomer"?) Even Tsiolkovsky chose his wife for practical reasons: "A little over sixteen years old and if only she did not interfere with work."

He recalled the wedding rosy: “On the day of the wedding, I bought a lathe from a neighbor and cut glass for electric machines. Only the crowning priest got drunk. " The only thing that the scientist was a fan of was space. He dreamed of flying starships to distant planets, settling mankind in the solar system and transforming people into intelligent "animal plants". In short, Ray Bradbury and George Lucas are resting!


Nikola Tesla


While you are gathering your courage to screw in the light bulb, remembering Our Father, when lightning flashes on the horizon, and looking like a dock you raise a lever on automatic plugs, scientists like Nikola Tesla insert their fingers into the socket. If Tesla had lived in our time, the eccentric antics of a Manhattan millionaire would have hit the front pages.

"Mr. Brain", as his friends called him, was known as a real freak: more than anything in the world he was afraid of germs (that's why he always wore snow-white gloves), was obsessed with personal hygiene, hated pearls (he could ask a woman who had the imprudence to wear something like that to leave the room) necklace) and slept only two hours a day (the rest of the time was occupied by experiments with lightning and current).


Vincent van gogh


Another self-taught genius with a heightened sense of beauty and a traumatized psyche. The artist was born a year after his brother, who was originally named Vincent, was born and died almost immediately. The Good Parents took Vincent II to the cemetery every week - to the tombstone with his own name!

Researchers of the life of Van Gogh consider this fact one of the main reasons for the manifestation of madness in the future. In just seven years obsessed with painting, he created about a thousand drawings and almost the same number of paintings, loved to paint at night by candlelight, went crazy for yellow color and a straw hat, was a great original in terms of gifts (cut off his earlobe as a present to his beloved prostitute) and in a fit of madness, a couple of times ate the most precious thing - all my colors.


Charles Darwin


Do you love animals the way Darwin loved them? The scientist, obsessed with the search for the mechanism of evolution, did not deprive one of the trembling creatures with reverent attention and with the same admiration for the habits of seals and worms. Darwin followed the latter especially carefully, trying to find out what feelings "rain" preserved in the process of evolution. He played the piano to find out if they had hearing; sprinkled perfume to test the sense of smell; defiantly chewed tobacco in order to catch the sparks of worm consciousness. Nothing!

The worms remained deaf, dumb, blind and adamant. The only thing that the scientist discovered were signs of sociality: the "wards" often lay down next to each other.


Edgar Allan Poe


One name of Edgar Poe makes us in awe, and before our eyes a crow, a pendulum, a crowd of heads and all the horrors of the school curriculum on literature immediately fly by ... It seems that at this place you should wake up in a cold sweat, when suddenly you realize that it is long sleeping. A-a-a-a! The founder of the detective genre and the progenitor of science fiction, is the darkest soul in world literature. Tragic events and failures rhyme in his biography, like lines from Morella, Ligeia and The Fall of the House of Usher: wealth and poverty, love and death, family mansion and shelters, fabulous earnings and death in a ditch.

Even in the happiest moments, Poe never wrote "light" prose, he was thoroughly saturated with human suffering, conflicts, delusions and torments. He loved to stage psychological experiments on himself and others and torture the soul. It seems that by opening any of his works, we still feel like a part of this experiment for a lifetime.


Leonardo da Vinci


It is more difficult to say who this genius was not and what he did not invent. Machine gun? Is he! Scuba gear? He is also! Car? Definitely not him! No he! And also the tank and the golden ratio. Throughout his life, da Vinci lamented that he did not have wings, and was literally obsessed with the idea of ​​flight, and so much so that he could not sleep for several days until a new aerial invention came to his mind.

For example, a medieval helicopter made of flax soaked in starch, which was set in motion by four people and a spring. Or the bat wing, which turned out to be the prototype of the hang glider; the airship is the prototype of the airship. How do you like this prophecy to the glory of parachutists: "If you have enough linen fabric sewn into a pyramid with a base of 12 yards (approximately 7 m 20 cm), then you can jump from any height without any harm to your body"?


Grigory Perelman


Behind this now fashionable beard and sable eyebrows hides the most iconic figure of the 1990s. The greatest unmercenary mathematician is the only Russian academician who is among the ten living world geniuses. The study of the Poincaré hypothesis, over which all the scientists of the world fought, he spent on his modest means, and later flatly refused multimillion-dollar grants for solving the formula of eternity. Later, the scientist absolutely sincerely and self-confidently confessed (and this is one of the coolest sayings that we have ever heard): "I know how to control the Universe ... Why should I run after a million?"


Marsh and Cop


"The Great Battle for the Dinosaurs." A title for Spielberg's note as a sequel to the next "Jurassic Park" or the Zapashny brothers for a new program. In reality, the blockbuster name hides a war between two great paleontologists: Edward Cope of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and Othniel Charles Marsh of Yale University.

Who would have thought that meticulous lovers of antiquity, professors and intellectuals will arrange a real "bone war" full of intrigues and conspiracies that are cooler than in Fincher's films. Dinosaur-obsessed paleontologists from 1877 to 1892 competed with each other in the search for fossils, resorting to bribery, theft and even the destruction of valuable bones, so that they did not go to a competitor. In an attempt to achieve paleontological superiority, the once wealthy "hunters" went bankrupt, but unhealthy excitement and obsession bore fruit: Cope and Marsh discovered at least 142 new species of dinosaurs.

MAXIM - While the COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers are measuring the percentage of effectiveness, we still have to take precautions and wear masks in public. But bad luck, because of them, it turns out, the face can be capricious and reward you with acne, and in the common people - with acne.

For the first time they started talking about this in the spring, when they began to notice that the areas of the skin to which the masks are attached are covered with acne. This phenomenon was named "maskne".

Physicians are most susceptible to maskne, because they wear masks more often and longer than others. A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology reports that at least 83% of healthcare workers in China's Hubei province suffer from facial skin problems.

It can also occur in women and extravagant men who wear too much makeup. But in general, everything is individual. You can wear at least a doormat on your face, and not a single pimple will bother you, but you can put on a sterile mask, and acne will appear in half an hour. Nevertheless, there are still general recommendations on what to do so that your face does not look like you are 14 again!


GENERAL ADVICE

1. Change your mask every two hours!

We all understand, she is your first and beloved, it's hard to part with her. Since March, every day she gently touches your face and playfully tickles her lips with pellets. But it's time to leave her. Once and for all.

If a toad chokes you because you have to throw out the mask without bringing it to the holes, then buy yourself a few pieces of fabric that can be washed every night.

Change the mask as soon as it gets wet. Because moisture is a great breeding ground for bacteria. Also, a wet mask stops filtering the air. And remember, the mask is not a soldier's footcloth, you cannot turn it over and wear it for the rest of the week.


2. Take a break from the mask

As effective as masks are, you shouldn't sleep in them. And walking in it all day is also harmful. Take breaks at least every four hours for fifteen minutes if you are not in a crowded place. Your face will be grateful to you.



3. Wash your mouth with soap!

Do you remember how your parents threatened you when you brought dirty words home from the street? Now is the time to fulfill their promises. Just remove the soap, we were joking.

Everything is much simpler. It is enough to brush your teeth with a toothbrush twice a day and additionally sanitize your mouth with mouthwash / foam after each meal. Because bacteria that multiply in the mouth due to food residues get on the mask, and from the mask on the face. Such a menagerie will not do your beautiful face.


4. Wear a face mask on your face!

Not in the back pocket of your jeans, not on your elbow or at the bottom of your backpack, because this way you collect all the germs and bacteria that are around it. And then you put them on your face (they are just waiting for this).



5. Wash your face before and after the mask

You just don't need to use laundry soap and a stone scraper for this. This, of course, will help you cleanse your face, but not from dirt, but from the top layer of skin.

Use soft and delicate foams for washing. And do not be afraid, this will not shake your masculinity.


6. Carry a blotter with you

No, you don’t have to go to the mezzanine to get the blotting paper that your father used to wear to school. An ordinary scarf (cotton, if you are an aristocrat in the third generation, and paper, if you are an ordinary man in the street) is enough to sometimes remove sweat from under the mask. Because sweat is an excellent medium for the development of all kinds of dirty tricks. Yes, and thanks to this, touching your face with dirty hands will become a little less.


Here are some more tips from a dermatologist

1. If there is no problem yet, but there is oily / combination skin and active work of the sebaceous glands (due to stress and against the background of the greenhouse space above the skin traumatized by the mask), wash your face with a sebum-regulating anti-inflammatory gel, use matting soothing creams (fluids) in the morning and in the evening.

In the evening after cleansing, you can use a gentle cleansing mask and moisturizing serum with prebiotics (this will support the skin microbiome and minimize the risk of inflammation).


2. If the masks have already settled on the face, purchase a stop-acne product at the pharmacy (this is a paste, gel or liquid in mini-packages from the assortment of most brands of medical cosmetics: Cleanance Avene, Hyseak Uriage, Effaclar La Roche Posay, Keracnyl Ducray , Sébium Bioderma, Exfoliac Noreva, etc.) and apply several times a day to the inflammatory elements themselves. If there are more than ten of these elements, an in-person consultation with a dermatologist and the selection of drug treatment is necessary.

Two news (good and bad) for beard owners: facial hair interferes with the protective properties of the mask (if you counted on them at all), but the mask leans less against the face and, therefore, hardly irritates the skin.

Blob Opera


MAXIM - You are given an ensemble of pot-bellied drops - tenors and other sopranos. And what to do with them is up to you, Paganini. Basque will soon be out of work.

Experimenters David Lee and the Google team have suddenly realized a very daring idea - to write music not using a drum machine and curves guitar simulators (they are all curves, believe me). They decided it was time to tackle the most painful - the throat. And they wrote a helluva lot of clever simulator of opera singing and a cappella. Moreover, in the form of a funny animated game, where you don't have to think about anything at all, but just move the cursor across the screen and enjoy.

It turned out to be a very, very addictive toy. Please note that in addition to a very easy tutorial, there is a "record" button and a library with examples. The examples are impressive - it turns out that you can really give birth to something complete.

What we recorded on the go in a minute already sounds better than any Russian New Year's "Ogonyok"!

You can have fun and at the same time contribute to science here at Blob Opera. Let's leave Baskov and Kirkorov out of work! Half the money.
