The noose draws tighter around Debaltsevo… and the fascists refuse to flee. Indeed, there are verified reports of junta forces firing on each other. This has been a fucking surreal conflict… now, we have people supposedly on the same side firing at one another. I don’t envy the poor civilians caught up in this. I hope that the junta collapses soon… then, a bloodier bunch would take over… but they wouldn’t last. The bloodletting has to end. The attempt by the USA and Rome to overthrow Holy Rus has to end. How much longer must we drain the chalice of wrath?

Satan cackles in glee… can’t the Uniates see that?

9 October 2014. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky. It’s Much Ado About Nothing! 2014

The one main event of this year was the deepening of the Sino-Russian alliance due to stupid and inane moves on the part of the Anglo Americans. With Russia and China in a united front, there is no way that the USA can control the World Island, and that’s that. In equal measure, it’s due to the stupidity of Joe Biden, Ted Cruz, Chilly Hilly, and John McCain… under the skin, they’re all alike. That’s scary.

After the events in Ferguson MO, the USA hardly has the “high ground” to criticise anyone else. Do we truly need such a militarisation of our cops? I’d say no…

Archpriest V A Chaplin Supported a Four-Day Workweek and Offsite Work

________________________   

On Tuesday,Archpriest V A Chaplin, the Chairman of the MP Synodal Department for the Coordination of Church and Society (OVTsO), told Interfax-Religion that Russians should seriously consider the idea of a four-day workweek, proposed recently by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). “I think that we’d not lose anything if we instituted a four-day workweek, even without increasing the actual hours worked. Of course, we couldn’t apply this to the service sector and other areas where one needs to have someone present in the workplace”. He also pointed up that those who’d have to work more days deserved more pay, but he observed that although the sort of jobs that require mandatory onsite presence are amongst the most well-compensated, the number of such jobs is rapidly declining.

Fr Vsevolod thought that the topic of the four-day workweek requires a multifaceted and serious discussion from individuals, society, and the state. “Now, of course, many will try to turn it into a joke… that Russian people really don’t work when they go to work. Some will say that we only have one full working day in the summer… Wednesday… from mid-Thursday until mid-Tuesday, much of the “working” population is at their dachas outside of Moscow. Some can even afford to keep up such a routine, even in the winter. However, jokes aside, this topic is very important”. He noted that many people have changed the nature of their work. They can work from home, offsite, saying, “It’s better to work offsite than it is to spend three or four hours every day commuting. In this case, we should give priority to the real results of labour; we shouldn’t allow bosses to use it to chain people to the carpet as slaves. Moreover, if there’s some upset in implementing such a scheme, the boss will receive more than he loses, because all relations with subordinates can be much faster and more efficient using modern means of communication than through conversations in the office”.

Fr Vsevolod acknowledged that, sometimes, it’s useful to exchange views at meetings, “to look each other in the eye”, but “e-mail, video conferencing, and offsite texting” are more becoming effective means of carrying out business discussions. “However, the number of different types of meetings, often formal, piles up, especially in Moscow. Daily, I often have to attend five events in different parts of Moscow… we could solve the questions that arise during these events in two or three e-mails. Therefore, the ratio of actual work and hours on the job now is fundamentally different from what it was thirty, twenty, or even ten years ago. Nevertheless, we should approach labour productivity differently; firstly, we should assess who really put in the effort and what it resulted in. in future, we shouldn’t have people who play Solitaire on their office computer for eight hours, but we should look for those who can achieve great results in a short time, and I don’t mean results as measured in roubles or dollars”.

Earlier, the ILO proposed that businesses should think about moving to a four-day workweek, as it believes it’s better than the five-day workweek common today. ILO expert Jon Messenger believed that a shorter week would create more jobs, improve employee health (long hours, too much time at the office, and stress-health cause much ill-health), and improve performance.

Pravmir posted a POS “translation” here. American Hard Right konverts infest Pravmir… that translation is typical of their “work”. It has tons of Podmoshensky admirers and Paffhausen fans on the English side. In short, it’s crank all ‘round. Not only is the Pravmir “translation” laughable… it’s distorts Vsevolod Anatolyevich’s intent… after all, he’s friends with G A Zyuganov, not worthless business shits like Khodorkovsky and Prokhorov. Look at how the konverts fucked up Tikhon Shevkunov’s Unholy Sainthood… calling it Everyday Saints! They’re soulless proponents of the worst faction of the US Republican Party. One wonders why they’re Russian Orthodox, when their political idols all hate Russia, Holy Rus, and Russian Orthodoxy. They support Republican asshats who’re thrusting a knife into the Rodina’s back… what a buncha losers…

Yes… one DOES wonder…
