Russia State Duma Elections

Bầu cử ở Nga

The governing United Russia party has done well in the State Duma elections, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

Đảng cầm quyền Nga đã tổ chức thành công cuộc bầu cử Duma quốc gia, thủ tướng Nga Vladimir Putin tuyên bố hôm thứ hai.

The party just retained a majority in Sunday’s elections, winning 238 of 450 seats, a significant decline from the 315 seats it claimed four years ago.

Đảng chỉ chiếm đa số phiếu trong những cuộc bầu cử vào ngày chủ nhật, giành được 238 trong số 450 ghế, một sự giảm sút đáng kể so với kết quả đã đạt được 4 năm trước đây.

“Two hundred and twenty six votes are required to pass laws; United Russia is to get 238 seats - this enables us to work calmly and consistently, ensuring stability,” he said.

Putin đã phát biểu “cần 226 ghế để thông qua luật định, đảng Nước Nga thống nhất đã giành được 238 ghế, điều này có thể làm cho chúng ta làm việc bình tĩnh và kiên định hơn, đảm bảo một tình trạng ổn định”

“It will be no exaggeration to say that in recent years United Russia has served as a significant foundation of our political stability so its successful showing in the election is important not only for the government but for the country as a whole.”

“Sẽ không có gì là cường điệu khi nói rằng những năm gần đây đảng Nước Nga thống nhất đã đóng vai trò nền tảng quan trọng cho sự ổn định chính trị của chúng ta, vì vậy sự thành công thể hiện trong cuộc bầu cử là rất quan trọng không chỉ cho chính phủ mà còn cho toàn thể quốc gia.”

The second-placed Communist Party won 92 seats, a some 30% increase from 2007. The nationalistic Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) and the A Just Russia party also saw their share of the vote increase

Đảng Cộng sản đứng ở vị trí thứ 2 giành được 92 ghế, tăng khoảng 30% so với năm 2007. Đảng dân chủ tự do quốc gia (LDPR) và Đảng Nga công bằng cũng có sự gia tăng trong chia sẻ số phiếu.

Earlier in the day, President Dmitry Medvedev, who headed United Russia’s ticket at the polls and may head the new government after he steps down in March, reaffirmed that United Russia is ready to form blocs and coalitions in the new Duma

Những ngày gần đây, Tổng thống Dmitri Medvedev, người mà dẫn đầu số phiếu trong cuộc bầu cử ở Nga và có thể đứng đầu chính phủ mới sau khi mãn nhiệm vào tháng 3, đã xác nhận lại lần nữa rằng đảng Nước Nga thống nhất sẵn sàng hình thành một khối liên minh mới ở Duma mới.

U.S. worried by reports of electoral violations in Russia

Topic: Russian State Duma Elections (2011)

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney
01:53 06/12/2011
WASHINGTON, December 6 (RIA Novosti)
The U.S. administration is worried about reports of electoral violations during the December 4 parliamentary elections in Russia, a White House spokesman said.

International observers from the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe reported "flagrant procedural violations," including cases of ballot-stuffing.

"We have serious concerns about the conduct of those December 4th parliamentary elections," Jay Carney said.

U.S. officials said they were concerned by estimates given by European monitors from ODIHR, PACE and OSCE. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her concern about the election process earlier in the day.

"These concerns are reflected in the preliminary report issued by the OSCE's Election Observation Mission, including a lack of fairness in the process, attempts to stuff ballot boxes, and the manipulation of voter lists among other things," the White House spokesman said.

Sunday's elections were marred by widespread allegations of poll procedure in favor of United Russia, with dozens of clips appearing to show election fraud uploaded onto the Internet.

OSCE observers noted that the preparations for the elections were technically "well-administered across a vast territory," but marked by "a convergence of the state and the governing party," limited political competition and a lack of fairness.

The contest was slanted in favor of the ruling party: the election administration lacked independence, most media were partial and state authorities interfered unduly at different levels, OSCE said.

"Equally concerning are reports that independent Russian election observation efforts, including the nationwide Golos network and independent media outlets encountered harassment of their personnel and cyberattacks on their websites," Carney added.

U.S. Department of State Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said his country would provide greater support to non-governmental organizations in Russia for greater transparency of the March 4 presidential elections. Over $9 million were allocated from the Department of State budget for the purpose.

"We have, I know, spent more than $9 million to support free and transparent processes for Russia's upcoming elections," Toner said.

"Our interest is to support these NGOs that support the process, not necessarily to support... any given political party," he went on. "And Golos, by the way, is just one of many nongovernmental organizations in Russia that receive this kind of assistance."

The polls saw the ruling United Russia party suffer its worst ever nationwide result. While the party of Prime Minster Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev managed to hold onto a simple parliamentary majority, its share of the vote slumped from 64% to just under 50%.

Indian boy with parasitic twin -Song sinh ký sinh - Em bé Ấn Độ


Eight year old Deepak Kumar Paswaan from India will finally have a normal childhood after his “parasitic twin” has been surgically removed. The boy who became known around the world by the nickname “oktopus-boy” is born with partially developed legs and arms of his undeveloped twin growing from his chest. The boy was stigmatized for eight years; by some he was perceived as an incarnation of God, while others thought of him as the devil in the human body. In order to allow the boy to have a normal life, four-hour operation of removing his undeveloped twin was performed in a hospital Fortis, the Indian city of Bangalore in June this year and boy is recovering successfully and begins to live a normal life.

The boy first appeared in the media in February when the shares started collecting money for an operation that would remove the extra limbs of a boy. “I’m tired of it to be different from other kids, I just want to live normally,” said Deepak after surgery.

Weird Guinness records - Kỷ lục kỳ quặc

Ashrita Furman, an American, grew up in Queens, was born in 1954, the very time when the first Book of Guinness World Records was published. It was published only in 1000 copies.

By Christmas that year, “Guinness” became the most selling book in UK. The publishers all over the world became interested in this book, so at this moment it is being translated into more than 30 different languages. The very book became a recorder, after Bible it is the most selling book in the world.
While being a small boy, Ashrita Furman was really clumsy and he wasn’t to good in sports. All of those things have changed while he was a teenager, when he became interested in Eastern learning, especially for Indian teacher Shri Chinmoya. Suddenly he realized that if he believes in himself and his own abilities, he will be able to do all those things he, by that time, believed he is not able to do.

And the story goes…In 1978, he was after only two weeks of practice in a big bicycle race in Central Park in New York. The race was to last 24 hour’s, and by a big miracle he managed to pass 652 km and won the third place. Than he stated that that experience was one of the most important in his life, that after that moment when he ride off his bike after exhausting 24 hour’s of unstopping ride, he knew that he managed to control his inner strength. All the rest became a history. From that moment Ashrita Furman is contesting in different Guinness’s records.

His first Guinness record was in 1979. He did 27 000 jumping jacks! That was just the beginning which gave him strength to carry on with Guinness records in more than 30 countries on 7 continents. In Book of Guinness World Records managed to get written as a champion more than 230 times. But this year in April, his dream became true. Even if that kind of title doesn’t exist, we can say that he is a recorder among recorders, Ashrita is a knight of Guinness.

I will just mention some of his records here, like: carrying a brick (weighting 4, 5 kg) in one hand, underwater juggling with 3 balls, jumping on one foot, racing with an egg in spoon, jumping in sack, fast piling and eating a lemon, fast glue banding a person to the wall, pushing a car, braking, as more as possible, eggs with head (boiled, of course), blowing out candles on the cake, cutting apples with Japanese samurai sword, tarring t-shirt in shortest possible time, eating onion in shortest possible time, eating “M&M” with chop sticks, making the biggest sculpture of pop corn…

When Ashrita Furman is not breaking Guinness records, he living in Queens and leads a store of healthy food. Since he became famous, not only in his country, he gets calls from all over the world. Furman is lecturing about his successes, in order to help people not to lose their faith, because they are not maybe conscious what they can achieve.
