Putin seeks reflected glory of Russian tsars as he unveils statue in Crimea

Yahoo Animals and Pets - Sun, 11/19/2017 - 07:41

Putin seeks reflected glory of Russian tsars as he unveils statue in CrimeaVladimir Putin has unveiled a giant statue of Alexander III in Crimea with a speech drawing parallels between the rule of the conservative tsar and his own 18 years in power.   The decision to commemorate the quiet reign of Alexander III, who was the brother-in-law of Britain's Queen Alexandra, comes after the Kremlin ignored the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution this month.  An announcer on Saturday praised the “ruler who brought peace, glory, development and stability” as Mr Putin stood at attention and an honour guard pulled back an ochre covering from the looming bronze statue, which depicts the burly, bearded emperor sitting with his hands on a sword.  Officials have frequently stressed the “stability” that Mr Putin's presidency brought after the chaotic 1990s.  Mr Putin discusses a bronze relief of Alexander III's ostensible achievements, some of which did not actually occur during the emperor's reign, Internet users pointed out.  Credit: Alexei Druzhinin/TASS via Getty Images The president is also feted for his aggressive foreign policy, including the annexation of Crimea in 2014, which he alluded to in a speech. Mr Putin said that while Alexander III was often called the “peacemaker” because he waged no large-scale wars while leading the empire from 1881-1894, he “gave Russia 13 years of peace not by yielding but by a fair and unwavering firmness”. He added that the emperor had modernised the military and begun construction of the Trans-Siberian railway.  The monument bears a saying popularly attributed to Alexander III and often quoted by Mr Putin: “Russia has only two allies, her army and fleet”.  A work removes an etching mistakenly showing a Nazi weapon on the monument to Mikhail Kalashnikov unveiled in Moscow in September. Credit: Mladen Antonov/AFP/Getty Images But Internet users were quick to mock a bronze relief of the emperor's alleged achievements. It shows the Tretyakov gallery and the historical museum in Moscow, which were founded years before Alexander III took the throne, as well as novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, who was already dead. The inaccuracies echoed a mistake in a monument to rifle-maker Mikhail Kalashnikov unveiled in Moscow in September: An etching showed the schematics of the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis.

Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery 

Yahoo Animals and Pets - Sun, 11/19/2017 - 06:35

Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery A hunter left disfigured from a near-fatal bear attack has had his face rebuilt after undergoing months of surgeries. Lee Brooke’s nose and moustache were “ripped off” his face during the grizzly attack during a hunting trip in Wyoming in October last year. The 60-year-old told FOX 31 he came across an elk he had shot the day before on his excursion, but quickly realised a bear had already claimed the kill. He turned to leave when the bear suddenly attacked, knocking him unconscious. When he woke he found the aggressive animal standing over him. Mr Brooke recalled the shock of seeing his “nose and moustache laid out on the ground”, adding: “Now I knew what was wrong with my face.” He underwent months of surgeries  Credit: FOX31 Denver (KDVR-TV) He explained: “I felt her sniffing my cheek. I felt her whiskers. “I should’ve bled to death right there. I should’ve at least drowned on my blood.” With blood in his eyes blurring his vision, he managed to reach for a steak knife in his pocket, later joking: “I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to stab her if I could see her. “I had to lean in to stab her in the head. So I was [that] close to her nose.” He spent around an hour alone in the woods before help arrived, recalling: “I said ‘Lord I could do with a little help about now!’” His brother-in-law, George Neal, eventually found him and remembered seeing Lee’s torn-off nose and upper lip on the ground. He grabbed the body parts and stuffed them in Lee's pocket before calling 911. He said the bear “ripped his face right off”. A wild bear (not pictured) attacked him in Wyoming Credit: AP Mr Brooke underwent months of reconstructive surgery at the Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Unit in Colorado. Dr Benson Pulikkottil and Dr Lily Daniali removed a fibula and a flap of skin from his leg, then used the bone and skin to rebuild his face. Doctors will eventually reconstruct his nose, possibly even using a part of his own nose they managed to preserve. “They were so confident and compassionate and communicated really well back and forth,” said Mr Brooke. “Everybody was phenomenal. They built me up and never let me down. They’re the best of the best.” Woman’s yoga session interrupted by bear licking her neck
