3.02.17 - 23.02.17
05.05.2017, 15:09

23.02.17 Congratulations on the Day of "the Invincible and the Legendary"! We shall remember the courage of our forefathers and their Victories!

21.02.17 Americans were pioneers in the research of language wars. The term launched several important directions of research investigating how the Truth turns out to be consumed by society as something entirely different that comes under the heading of such a neologism as the post- truth. Here is one of the inspiring works that looks into the ways how the war of words is used by news media to manipulate the public opinion:

Silberstein, Sandra. War of Words. : Language, Politics and 9/11. London: Routledge, 2002. – 198 p.  

17.02.17  Newsweek: "Russians want Trump in power but  they will look at the instability in Washington with a bit of schadenfreude". http://europe.newsweek.com/russia-donald-trump-crisis-kremlin-politics-557374?utm_source=email&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=newsletter&utm_content=read_more&spMailingID=1348011&spUserID=MTg1NDgxMzI1NTES1&spJobID=730525051&spReportId=NzMwNTI1MDUxS0

The German borrowing  schadenfreude is a typical way for English to conceptualize culture specific notions.

schadenfreude ['ʃɑːd(ə)nˌfrɔɪdə]  злорадство; наслаждение страданиями других

11.02.17 A claim that someone doesn't understand humour amounts to an insult. But the truth is that our comprehension of humour is very limited. One of the important functions of humour is discussed here: http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/02/08/laughing-all-the-way-to-autocracy-jokes-trump-dictatorship/

9.02.17 Not surprisingly, Russia is viewed with particular suspicion on the political left. At the Women’s March and subsequent demonstrations, protesters waved a variety of signs claiming Trump is a Putin stooge. “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Czar, Putin Made You What You Are.” “Say No to Putin’s Puppet!”


A beauty of a pun!!! Both in its event irony, its impotent anger and its feeble attempt at humour! Are there such dumb heads at the head of the Women's March that they bolster up just what they hate so much: Putin and Trump? A bunch of idiots!

Не удивительно, что к России с особым подозрением относятся политики левых взглядов. Во время женских маршей и последующих демонстраций протестующие размахивали различными плакатами с надписями, согласно которым Трамп является ставленником Путина. «Сияй, сияй, маленький царек, Путин сделал тебя тем, кто ты есть» (измененные слова из английской колыбельной, в основе которой — стихотворение английской поэтессы XIX века Джейн Тейлор "The Star" — прим. перев.). «Скажем нет путинской марионетке!».

3.02.17 Katie Rich, a writer for Saturday Night Live (SNL) since 2013, is facing extreme public criticism and a call for her job to be terminated after posting an offensive tweet about 10-year-old Barron Trump: "Barron will be this country's first home school shooter." Russian translation «Бэррон будет первым в этой стране школьным стрелком на домашнем обучении» leaves a great deal of cultural context undisclosed. And there are many things that entangled the Second Amendment into Trump's campaign and, unfortunately they didn't spare Trump's son. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. 'School shooter' is a student who brings a gun into the classroom to bully his classmates.
