The Caucasian Shepherd, or Caucasian Ovcharka is the most brutal Russian dog breed. It is a large, even-tempered dog with powerful and muscular body, bear-look face, deeply set oval dark eyes, round-shaped cropped ears and low carried long tail. It has a thick and water resistant double coat in shades of gray, brindle, yellow, rust, red or white (click for video). The coat may be longer or shorter depending on the region the dog comes from.

Good dancers too.

Totally my favourite kind of dog, btw. Because they obviously need a lot of space and a lot of food they have always been quite high-status pets in cities. When a lot of the old guard emigrated or downsized into small flats they let them loose in Moscow so you used to get packs of them living in the parks and hanging around near markets. It was quite an experience to have these things that look like small-to-medium-sized bears barreling after you in search of treats but they really are the sweetest, silliest creatures. Unfortunately some moron attacked one when it was sleeping, iirc, and it made fairly short work of her so they ended up shooting them all.

Ramnaresh Samhain (ShariVari), Tuesday, 7 January 2014 08:30 (five years ago) link

I am. I didn't see any of those dogs but I did restrain a mastiff the other day (Ken C possibly bore witness)

'they ended up shooting them all' = Russia, right

As an addendum, I'm still working on the same assignment; just that all involved have come to England. I did a lesson at a certain fairly well-to-do hotel yesterday, which involved helping a 15 year-old girl with her English coursework, which in turn involved the full explanation, discussion & analysis of a certain Andrew Marvell poem that may or may not contain sweetness being rolled up into a ball. Still debating whether it was a good or bad thing that the billionaire dad was listening in from the next room

excellent

ramzan kadyrov likes them too

they are probably quite different creatures if they are kept in cages and fed live rabbits and poked with sticks by off duty paramilitaries

The Bangladeshi international cricketer Shahadat Hossain has been charged with physically torturing an 11-year-old girl he and his wife kept as a domestic servant, in a case that has shocked cricket fans.

Hossain, 29, who is considered a hero by many younger Bangladeshis, faces charges carrying a potential 14 years in prison, plus a fine, and has been suspended from all cricket until further notice by the Bangladeshi cricket board.

The alleged victim, Mahfuza Akhter, known as Happy, was found in September in a street in Dhaka, the Bangladeshi capital, with multiple injuries, including a broken leg. She told investigators she had been working for the couple for a year.

“They used to beat me with sticks, kitchen utensils, punch me, and scratch me. I would be slapped a lot,” Akhter was quoted as saying by CNN, which carried pictures of her swollen and bruised face on the day she was found.

Thursday, December 17, 2015 9:49 AM I Love Music Message edited to :
Yeah I feel like if you're going to actually sell a mix these days it has to justify being onsale. That either means being way better than the sort of thing you'd give to RA or a blog or something for free, or it has to feel more considered, or definably a bit more like an album. DJs like Mayer and Weatherall are consistently good at this, but I think the whole randomness of Prins's approach makes this more difficult, especially when there are jobbing Balearic guys whacking really good free mixes up every week.

I dunno, I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to commercial v free mixes. I like decent sound quality, I like being able to see artist names and track titles, I like the implied permanence of a really good mix album, otherwise I'd rather just listen to a live recording or radio set. Doesn't help that there's just this enormous glut of free mixes out there and they're quite a time investment given that, unless you know the DJ, you don't know what you're getting into at the start.

did u read the 'guardian long read' about the vyapam scandal

contained this quote that i noted but have not found cause to c&p hitherto

“Now the police claim I am a middleman in the Vyapam scam,” he said, “I spent three months in jail before I was granted bail. My college admission has been cancelled, six years of my life are wasted, and my dream of becoming a doctor is over. I know I will be exonerated, the police have no evidence against me, but it will take the rest of my life to clear my name. Now tell me, why shouldn’t someone in my place commit suicide?”
