Lost in translation: Russian family mistook Soviet Criminal Code for Quran for generations
The senior citizen told reporters that her family had passed the book from generation to generation
UFA, June 5. /TASS/. A family from Russia’s Bashkortostan Region has presented the local museum of the Interior Ministry with a 1926 Arabic language edition of the Soviet Criminal Code, which they misidentified as the Quran for many years, the ministry’s press service said on Tuesday.
“The museum was presented with the 1926 edition of the criminal Code in the Arabic language. The book’s elderly owner said she had mistaken it for the Quran and put under her child’s head,” the press service said, adding that the woman’s son later served in the police.
The senior citizen told reporters that her family had passed the book from generation to generation.
“My mother said that this was a holy book, which should be wrapped in cloth and placed under a pillow so that children would keep calm and not misbehave,” the elderly lady explained. “Many years later we found out that this is the 1926 edition of the Soviet Criminal Code.”
The museum of the Interior Ministry was opened in Ufa, the capital of Bashkortostan, in 1982.
Again traditionally, we give our new year message with a song of Iron Maiden like previous years. I do not write its lyric this year. I can just say that, music and lyrics are very good, as always. 😎
And, I am thinking how the year of 2017 passed. I see that one thing came forward prominently:
I realize that I was plenty updated in 2017!
Life on the planet earth has always kept me energetic. In 2017, I was more energetic because I was constantly updated.
“Updating” is not my statement. This is the new name of the “price increase” to almost every price pulls out of the public’s pocket, from the roads to the bridges toll, from the electricity to the milk or to the tomato (in a very wide range) by the government wing generally used this year. The government’s economy authorities does not say “price increase” anymore; instead of “increased” they use “updated.” The word of “increased” almost will be removed from the literature.
I’ve also had the pleasure of updating myself abundantly!
I didn’t miss the opportunity!
For example, when I learned how to live on with a salary increase of up to maximum 8% per year, I have been updated with pleasing.
While the salary was raised up to maximum 8%, I was happier when hearing the 50% or more updating of electricity bill, food prices, transportation expenses or etc at the same time. (according to consumer associations calculations, for example, 51 Turkish liras are the taxes of 100 Turkish liras electricity bill) Because I had been updated again!
When I was in the update mode, I’ve found myself by thinking on how it would be like to bring Tesla to this time and to make free electricity for the public. Time machine is the only way to bring him to this era! If I would be updated so much, maybe I could invent a time machine!
I thought how I might be more up-to-date, while I am more updated. Because, you are so much updated that you are feeling yourself like brand-new beyond time!
For example, due to even straw was imported from abroad countries (and according to news of November, the prices of straw were raised 100% in 3 months), the price of milk of the cows who ate straw has also “increased”; sorry Updated!
But wait a minute! The cows are also imported from Germany, Austria and etc.
I wonder, do they milk the cowIs on the ships while they came; I do not know. Even thinking about it, has updated me.
When the price of raw milk has updated 20 Turkish kurush (about 7 cents), caused to update milk products such as cheese with 40% plus price at markets, updated me more! For example, right now the news said that the updating champion was butter in 2017; January 2017 1kg butter was 25 Turkish liras–December 2017 1 kg same brand butter is 65 Turkish lira.
I am never mentioning the price of gasoline, as long as I started to use public transport more, I realized that I was not considering gasoline money anymore.
But then when “updated” price comes to public transport, I think, the best is bicycle. If it would not be, we will run.
I do not know how can I be updated while I run, but I am certain to find a way!
Next to all of them, it was the bread that disappointed me! I wanted to be updated with it, but it did not. Even last month, a news has fallen to the newspapers: “230 thousand tons of wheat will be imported” (No, Anatolia is not a “wheat silo” of the region anymore, until ten years ago, it was; like eveything, the wheat comes from abroad.) I was so happy when saw that news! I was waiting a “great” update with the new bread prices! But it has not happened! Authorities reduce the weight of the bread instead of the update! So, a lower weight bread was going to be taken with the same price. It was a complete disappointment for me!
By the way,
I am not a selfish extraterrestrial, so I have not forgotten my earthling friends, while I was constantly updated. Of course they are being updated too. But I thought maybe they did not notice this yet, and I did them a favor.
Every new year eve, I buy books as present. But the book prices have also been updated almost 30% in this year. This year I’ve bought “one” book(novel) for two friends; it was expensive because the book was at the updated price. I divided down the middle of the book in two, copied it’s back and face covers via printer. I wrote “Volume One” on the first part, and “Volume Two” on the other. I glued the covers face to both. I gave the first volume (that is actually the first half of the book) to an earthling friend, and the second volume(rest of the book) to the other. I updated them as well and strengthened their friendship by providing them to exchange books with each other. Haha!
-What are you planning to do next year, Migo? Will you give the pages of the book one by one to the people!
-Hmmm, maybe, why not WD? That’s a good idea.
-It’s not a good idea, Migo! You alien, this is not a good idea! I cannot believe I will spend another year with you, Migo! Damn!
-So, don’t we wish “happy new year” for us?
-Let’s just say that! It would bring end your crap at least! Happy New Year, my beloved readers! Also, you see what I am dealing with!
-Happy new year my earthling friends! We know that we will be updated more in 2018. But even if it would be with the updates, the good part is that we still be all together in peace and good health. 😉
Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!
The things you will read shortly after, it might seem an imagination or unreal, my earthling friends. But it’s all true. You will read the informations about the municipality are real, and also it is in Turkey Republic.
First of all I have to mention that in provincial and county municipal elections in Turkey, the rate of votes of the people living within the boundaries of the province or county, determines which party the municipality belongs to. For example, the same situation does not exist in parliamentary elections. A 10% election threshold in parliamentary elections is a matter of fact, and even if the person who wants to become a deputy, holds the most votes in the region, if his/her party remains below 10% of the all Turkey general votes, he/she can not be a deputy. Yes democracy is such a thing, haha!
Anyway, I guess, you’re wondering where these communist bees came from.
These communist bees are the bees of only municipality of Ovacik, Turkey’s only communist municipality. I did not give this name to them, the locals call with this name.
Tunceli (Dersim) city, Ovacık county municipality, with the candidate of Communist Party in the municipal elections on March 30, 2014, became the only communist municipality in the country.
*It must be pointed out that before September 12, 1980 the fascist coup, there was a communist party county in Fatsa county of Ordu city in Turkey.
And let’s see, since March 2014,
Let us take a look at what the communist mayor of Fatih Mehmet Macoglu who was beloved by the public has done, since then:
First, he sold official car and he used this money to open the library. Anymore, there is a big library in the municipal building.
There is no door in his office room at Ovacık municipality building, everyone can enter to his room.
He opened the public properties to the people. The municipality is farming these areas, and the collected crops are distributed to the poor people.
He made public transportation free. So the county buses are free.
Ovacik communist mayor Macoglu and Ankara city, former mayor Melih Gokcek from AKP, twitter correspondences about this subject.
Translated in Turkish:
Melih Gokcek: IN ANKARA, DURING RELIGIOUS FESTIVAL, ALL BUSSES ARE FREE.
Mehmet Macoglu: In Ovacık, transportation is free in all 365 days plus 6 hours. You make a show for what by writing with capital letters.
Also, in Ovacik the taxis are being hired for the transportation of disabled citizens, and the municipality pays for it.
He reduced the water per cubic meter price to 50 Turkish kurus. So about 3 cents. For example, the price of water in Istanbul is 1 USD per cubic meter.
(Actually he wanted to give the water as free to public; but Mehmet Maçoglu had said that he could not do it, because the water cannot be given without payment as legally in Turkey.)
He founded the cooperative with the villagers, and organic chickpeas, beans are being produced from domestic seeds. They are being sold to all of Turkey. In fact, this year there was such a demand for these natural and domestic products that there was such news in the newspapers:
“When the demand for organic chickpeas, dried beans and honey produced by the only Communist Party municipality of Turkey in Tunceli’s Ovacık District became intense, the district cargo began to carry packages with a quota above Turkey standards. Moved products have been 3 tonnes per week.”
Of course the winner here is the peasants and the consumers. There are 51 villages in the Ovacik county, and the villagers can now make money from their own products without intermediaries.
The products of Ovacik municipality are not only chickpeas and beans. They also produce organic honey, again through a cooperative.
With the start of sales of honey in Turkey, communist mayor Macoglu said:
“After the communist chickpeas and beans, the communist honey has also entered the Turkish literature. We put on the market Turkey’s healthiest and most natural honey. Those who tasted the natural honey, both will eat our honey, also will become communist.”:))
The Ovacik municipality also grants scholarships to college students with the proceeds from the honey.
In addition, there is such a transparent and open municipal policy that, at the end of the years, the Ovacik municipality annually puts the annual income costs on banners and hangs it at the door of the municipality, so that all the public can see.
The communist mayor also opened the tours of the Munzur valley, set up camp sites there, and opened the area for tourism.
The works are not limited with only these. Especially for children and young people, culture house, cinema-theater workshop and music workshop also provide training.
So, in short, it is a municipality that exists for the people, that is what it has to be already.
And if you come by Ovacik municipality one day, and if you see a mayor who collects the garbage together with the public, works in the fields with the villagers, sometimes works in a build a house, sometimes plays with children, also if you see the bees that you suspect that they could be communists, leave a warm smile to them. They know their presence is already in this warm smile.
An another year has passed again NFR, you were not physically on the earth. We talked about you some times, I and Sojourner, and say into that conversations always, “if he was here, some things would have been different.”
This is such a great thing about friendship that you made in a short time( I only knew you during a year). We missed you, WD and I missed your conversations, and WD always says “he had a light that can see the opportunities in my future kingdom.” 🙂
Sojourner and I are against all ants side by side anymore! He has been my earthling comrade. And I’d wish you were being in here, while sojourner made that jokes about the ants which was the reason of my first sentence; you would have definitelly laughed too much. Who knows, maybe you have read what he wrote, and joined to our laughing in a place where you are in right now.;)
And Ars, she is still one of brilliant young of the earthlings. She is writing more poems, and actually I miss her pictures. Maybe she doesn’t have too much time to paint anymore. I don’t know. But she seems fine, and she is very smart as always.
I don’t want to talk about the world situation to you. It is going to sh*t as never before. Already you can predict this. And there is no need to talk about it right now.
Anyway, it doesn’t matter whereever you are in, my dear Earthling friend NFR, you are always remembered as very good friend, and good people. Just know this, and don’t forget.
Migo is sick for last two-three days, I guess he got flu, because his nose flows like waterfall. We cannot go out too much and go around as much as I wanted, especially yesterday and today. Just we are going out for my pee, and turning back quickly. To extend the time when we are out there, my efforts to reach the farthest tree to pee, have failed. Migo didn’t buy it! I cannot see beautiful lady dogs due to lack of the time. I am in a horrible situation! I am bored. I miss my days before three days ago! This is not a life what I want; I need attention which will come from lady dogs!
-The one who is sick is me, but you need care, is that so WD?
-Why were you suprised, Migo! I am the most handsome and wise dog on earth, but I am sure there are plenty of your kind at outer space! You are not special in this case!
My friends this is just too much for me. I am still a single mother.You know I have been an advocate for the poor, disabled, abused, harmed , neglected, animals, children, ect. My entire life. Here in Colorado everyone knows what caused all this. Sorry, I have not had coffee yet. Jake, when he was 5 would become overwhelmed at school. It is apart of SPD. He had an incredible pediatrician that was against putting kids on drugs. He made arrangements for occupational therapy. Said to me just keep doing the OT and change is diet. Well one day, Jake was frustrated, there as an event at school and they punished him by putting him in a padded closet 😦 he freaked out. Did anyone call me NO! then they let him out his flight or fight was so fired up. He was just a little guy 😦 he lashed out at a teacher.
Long story short. The DHS workers came to me and said if I did not medicate Jake they would put him in a residential treatment facility for kids with mental issues, and take him away from me. His pediatrician (who retired when Jake was 5 said NO way, he does not need drugs. I took Jake out of the Medicaid insurance and found a fantastic pediatric psychologist, and to get DHS off my back we agreed to dust Jake with Clonidine.
It was just enough to make the state leave us alone!! My friends this makes me cry. Being a mother is the MEANING of my life! I worked 4- 10 hour shifts in hospital so I could have 3 days off with my son. Later I would just pull 12 hours on the weekend so I could be there to help Jake if his SPD flared up. For the most part Jake was a snuggle bug, and just wanted to be at home with Mom.
As promised by Dr. Beasley with OT Jake grew out of the SPD 50% of the kids do!
The overdose happened at the time we had decided to start weaning Jake off the clonidine! 😦 😦
I shut down my life after the OD, I had a bit of savings and pretty much became a stay at home Mom. I just wanted to stare at my son’s face I was so happy to have him alive! I am tired my friends. I have been trying to change the US system since I was 14 years old, and they deported my grandparents. (They were my parents) I enrolled in military school. My grandparent thought my chances for opportunity would be better in the USA 😦
I never counted on people to help me, I worked hard!
My lovely career at Colorado State University. Did not want the media attention, they put me on unpaid leave in January. They won’t even respond to my emails.
I sold my home and spent every penny over 50 grand fighting this battle!
We live in a town with no real bus system. My #one ranked law firm knew my life was falling apart and they “BRACE yourself”….TOOK a pay out to mess withy the case form the inside Leventhal and PUGA!
It was the news reporter that found out! That was a crushing blow since my main attorney was a Marine Alex Wilscke 😦 I cam barreling down on them How could they!
NO ATTORNEY WANTS THIS CASE AT ALL!
I have been told by many people in power, Caroline you do not need an attorney. You know the law, and medicine better than any attorney you can hire.
You bet the coroner swapped Jakes samples they are not his, but they will not give them to me, because they know I will DNA sample them, I have called the FBI and the CIA myself!
You bet I wanted follow up care for Jake after the OD but the umbrella insurance company ordered his new pediatrician, because my favorite retired NOT to see Jake he was a medical liability!
Search engines are filtered in the USA and it was not until I left the country that I found a case of Clonidine causing DIC! When I came back to the USA with this information, I was met with shut doors! They would not listen to me.
The day Jake died, PVH again under the same insurance company let him lay there with no pain meds or heparin! Again because orders were put in place not to treat Jake!
I have nearly lost my mind in this. There is a media black out on the story WHY I can not get one paper, one news source to run the story!
Now I sit here using my neighbor wifi, mine has been disconnected. They have done their best to break my communication. 911 even told me not to call them! The FBI said, it is a local matter BUT again. The county and the police will not respond to my calls!
Sojourner told me months ago. Stop Caroline and save yourself. I was sad. I wanted to fight to save other children. I kept on fighting. it is against every fiber in my being to watch anything suffer.
I can’t drive, I have no gas money and I have an eviction notice on my apartment. Again, everything people have known for months!
Since Lasater and Martin are not willing to negotiate the claim. I have to STOP! I have to go back to proving for my surviving children. They need me! This case has been a 24hr/7 day a week job for me with NO pay! The friends I did have ran a long time ago, it is beyond the normal comprehension of the human mind to see corruption and evil to this extent!
SO, WHY DOES EVERYONE THINK A MOM WHO LOST HER BABY AND THEN HAD THE SUYSTEM TAKE MORE THAN THAT FROM HER, CAN LIVE LIKE THIS? MY BRAIN IS RITTLED WITH NIGHT TERRORS FROM WHAT I SAW MY BABY ENDURE, AND ALL THE DOCTORS HERE WANT TO DO IS MEDICATE ME!
There is nothing wrong with me. I saw my child get tortured in front of my eyes and die. I heard my baby’s ribs break during 40 minutes of CPR. That is not something that ever leaves your mind!
Now, I can’t get ONE lawyer to help me! Not one governmental agency! This is insanity! people are so greedy they can not even donate to my Gofund me for pharmacy reform.
This fight is making me physically ill! I can not fight, if I can not even afford to go to the doctor my self!.
I don’t want to quit, but with literally NO support from anyone. I have to protect myself. How can I provide for my family, if I am too sick to even help them?
There is no sense in blogging anymore, the only people who read my blog are in other countries according to my wordpress stats!.
It is called self preservation. Lasater and Martin know that their first offer to settle was highly illegal, but they are playing games. Saying , I need an attorney. No I don’t, it is a legal right to represent yourself!
So blogging about it has gotten me nothing but support from a few fellow bloggers, who I know are just as damaged and poor as me!
I DO read my fellow bloggers websites….well the ones that I know are run by real people and not under aliases.
My motto is, if you are going to blog be the real you!
Thanks my friends for all your support! I will grammar check later, I am too tired today.
This is about human life; it is about how bad US health system is; and it is about if you want to seek your right in US, how the system tools that stand by the tax of the people, can come out as the secret and invisible but powerful weapons against you. It’s the worst…
