  • ‘All girls, buy it!’ In China, Perfect Diary gives cosmetics world a makeover with live streams, low prices

    By Sophie Yu, Scott Murdoch

    BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) – With chat groups, video streams and low prices for foundation, China’s Perfect Diary has emerged from nowhere four years ago to become a cosmetics giant for the digital age, trailing only L’Oreal and LVMH in the world’s no. 2 market for make-up.

    The Guangzhou-based beauty unicorn is now setting its sights on a Hong Kong initial public offering (IPO). Before that, it’s driving into Southeast Asia, targeting more millennial social media users like Wen Shan, a 21-year-old student from Guangdong.

    Wen has ditched Western brands like NARS and Revlon and devotes her annual budget of 3,000 yuan ($434) to Perfect Diary cosmetics like eyeshadow palettes. Most cost less than 100 yuan and are made by the same contract manufacturers that supply Western brands.

    She converted to Perfect Diary after a room-mate’s tip. “The foreign brands have a large variety of foundations that often confuses me and I can’t tell which one is best on me … The Chinese brand knows what is good for local consumers.”

    Though still a global minnow compared with powerhouse L’Oreal, Perfect Diary now has 4% of the Chinese market for colour cosmetics, according to Euromonitor 2019 data. That ranks it joint third with Estee Lauder’s MAC, beaten only by luxury giant LVMH’s Christian Dior and three L’Oreal brands that stack up to more than 20%.

    The research firm estimates the overall market more than doubled from 2015 to nearly $8 billion in 2019 – and will mushroom to almost $15 billion in 2024 as China’s middle class expands.

    Perfect Diary’s rise has been fuelled by blending low prices and social media platforms like Douyin – TikTok for China – and WeChat, collecting customer data it can use to design and roll out new products rapidly, helped by charismatic influencers with huge online followings like ‘Lipstick King’ Li Jiaqi here.

    Yelling his catchphrase “All girls, buy it!”, Li has given Perfect Diary products rave reviews in popular live streams on giant e-commerce retailer Alibaba’s Taobao platform.

    Analysts said Perfect Diary’s rise has been boosted by younger, ‘Generation Z’ consumers’ willingness to embrace homegrown products.

    “Gen Z is growing up in a prosperous China,” said Mei Xin, analyst at Huatai Securities. “Unlike the older generation, they don’t believe the moon in the West is rounder than in China.”

    A spokesperson for L’Oreal in China didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the growth of homegrown brands, but said L’Oreal typically welcomes healthy competition.

    EYES ON SOUTHEAST ASIA

    Founded by entrepreneur Huang Jinfeng’s Yatsen E-Commerce firm in 2017 as an online, China-focused operation, the company now also has more than 150 stores in China – with a target of 200 this year – as well as international aspirations.

    “Yatsen E-Commerce has always had a vision of creating a domestic beauty brand with true international influence,” Huang told Reuters.

    In recent months, it has opened its own online store for Southeast Asia countries including the Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia. It also has an official store on Lazada, Alibaba’s Southeast Asia arm.

    “We listen to users and we immediately carry out research on products they want,” said Huang, citing the example of data gathered during the coronavirus pandemic that resulted in a new pressed face powder.

    “Consumers need to fix their makeup more often as the face mask takes off makeup,” Huang said.

    Perfect Diary currently uses contract manufacturers including Milan-headquartered Intercos,which has a factory in China that supplies L’Oreal and others. Since March it been building its own plant in Guangdong, due on line by end-2021.

    $500 MLN IPO, UP TO $5 BLN VALUATION?

    Perfect Diary doesn’t disclose financial performance or liabilities, nor say whether it’s profitable.

    Already backed by investors like Hillhouse Capital, Sequoia Capital, Tiger Global Management, Boyu Capital and Chinese Culture Group, Yatsen is currently raising a pre-IPO round that values it at around $4 billion, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter.

    It has also appointed Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to lead a Hong Kong IPO that aims to raise up to $500 million by the end of 2020, according to two separate sources.

    One person said the IPO valuation could likely reach $5 billion – big, yet dwarfed by L’Oreal’s more-than-$180 billion market value.

    The people declined to be named because the information was not public. Perfect Diary declined to comment on IPO plans.

    Meanwhile, student Wen continues to add lipsticks and foundations to her Perfect Diary make-up kit.

    “I don’t care much about the originality of a brand,” she said.

    “I didn’t know Perfect Diary was a Chinese brand the first time I bought it. But now I know, I have a natural good feeling about using a domestic brand.”

    Review: Nolty Gold 2019 Diary/Planner

    As regular readers know, I am a big fan of the Nolty Diary. Also known as the “Efficiency Notebook,” this Japanese planner has deservedly become a cult favorite, with Instagram posts galore showing off how people use their Nolty diaries. After very happily using a Nolty diary all through 2018, I decided to spring for an upgrade for 2019: the leather covered Nolty Gold. I also bought a couple other 2019 diaries that I’ll show you below.

    The Nolty Gold is a bit of a splurge, at about $56, but it feels special from the minute you see the box. The packaging is very elegant, with the notebook tucked in neatly under tissue paper. Underneath the notebook are various bits of Nolty literature, which I am unable to translate as I don’t speak Japanese. There are also 2 supplemental notebooks in the box– more on those a bit later.

    The diary itself gives an impression of luxury– you can smell the real leather, and immediately see the difference in texture from the regular vinyl-covered Nolty. But I did get a surprise when I first touched it– I expected it to feel very smooth and supple, and it sort of is– but the leather felt like it had little stubbly hairs sticking out of it! It felt a little rough and catchy against my skin, the way it feels if you handle silk fabric when your hands are dry and chapped. I thought maybe my hands WERE dry and chapped and that that was what I was feeling, but I could actually see the tiny bristles (or whatever they are) on the notebook. Luckily, these started to wear away as I handled the notebook and are now almost gone, leaving the leather feeling much smoother. It is soft but the texture seems more forgiving of scratches than some leathers. The year is gold stamped on the front and blind stamped on the spine, and there is a decorative line pressed along the edges. The folded-over leather gives a nice weight to the corners when you compare them to the vinyl Nolty.

    The overall size is just slightly smaller than the vinyl Nolty, due to less cover overhang, though it is still a bit more than I’d like. I’m hoping that with use the corners and edges will curl inwards a little, which hasn’t really happened with my vinyl 2018 diary. I was also surprised to see that the overhang was not symmetrical all around on the Nolty Gold I bought. Every other Nolty diary I’ve seen is so impeccably crafted with perfectionist attention to detail, and this notebook has no other flaw that I could detect. That said, the variance I noticed is not extreme and probably wouldn’t bother most people.

    The overhang is slightly bigger on the back cover and the bottom edge. At least on the back cover, I thought this might be to allow room for the supplemental booklets that can be tucked in the back. Every Nolty comes with a removable address book that slips under a strap and behind the back pocket. In addition, the Gold model comes with two booklets containing just lined paper for additional notes. They are made slightly narrower than the address book so they fit perfectly  without distorting the notebook cover, and their gilded edges match the main diary. I wish Nolty put a strap and pocket inside the front cover so you could add the 2nd supplemental notebook there. I’m not sure yet what I’ll use mine for, but I like the way they fatten the notebook up a little, and they should be handy for lists and other notes.

    Inside the Nolty Gold, the only real difference is that the endpapers have a sort of mottled tone to them. It goes nicely with the gilded page edges. Otherwise, the page layouts are the same, and you still get the 2 ribbon markers. The back pocket and strap are made of black leather to match the exterior, vs the clear plastic on the basic Nolty.

    You can see my 2018 Nolty review for other details on the paper performance, etc. I really love my 2018 Nolty, and I love the leather 2019 Nolty Gold even more. I bought mine on Rakuten and paid ¥6160 ($56.41) including shipping from Japan, so this diary is quite an investment, but I think it will be hard to go back to the regular version!

    I also bought two other 2019 Nolty diaries.  Model 1218 is a red version of the standard Efficiency Notebook. The cover and page edges are a nice bright red, but otherwise it is exactly the same as model 1211. The red is fun, but I prefer black so I’m giving this to someone as a gift. (I paid $16.99 for it at Kinokuniya’s website, with free shipping since I had it sent to their NYC store for pickup.)

    Model 1121 is the smaller version of the Efficiency Notebook, with extra train maps. Did I have any need for Japanese train maps that I can’t make head nor tail of? No, but they sure are fun to look at anyway! And I LOVE this little diary! The size is adorable. It fits nicely into a passport size Midori Travelers Notebook. The cover is a different texture from my 2018 model 1211. I like the 1121’s more pebbly texture.

    The interior layouts have been shrunk down proportionally, even the lined pages which are spaced at 4mm instead of 5mm. If you don’t have small handwriting, this notebook may not be for you!

    I’ve gotten so accustomed to using 3.5 x 5.5″ notebooks that I rarely even consider any other size for daily use, but for some reason, I just adore this little Nolty and will be using it for something– maybe some tiny daily doodling. (I paid $21.99 for this via Kinokuniya. Next time I won’t bother getting the extra train maps, as the version without them was only $17.99. I don’t know why it’s more expensive than the larger version.)

    I haven’t done any pen tests on these but I am sure they have the same paper found in my 2018 diary– it is wonderfully smooth and fountain pen friendly. Everything about the Nolty diary is just so pleasing to all the senses– tactile, visual, and olfactory, anyway! I am really looking forward to another year of using a Nolty as my planner/diary/life log/to-do list keeper and can’t recommend this brand enough! These are hard to find in stores, so if you want to buy a Nolty diary and can’t make it to Japan, I suggest you try Rakuten or Kinokuniya.

    9 best academic year diaries | The Independent

    While most of the world operates January to December, there are millions for whom the start of a year is marked by a new term or semester.

    For the many beginning university courses, or perhaps new teaching jobs this autumn – the 2018/19 academic year will bring a host of challenges and opportunities to be organised and remembered.

    Here, we’ve gathered together a range of top notch academic diaries to help with that task. We’ve tried to include options to suit different budgets – from the skint student to a tutor with more cash to splash, and also a range of sizes.

    Some want a compact option to shove into a small bag, and some a hefty desk diary in which to record all the details of their busy lives.

    We’ve looked for value, quality and practicality – as even the prettiest diary can be useless if not well designed.

    Pirongs Page-a-day-diary: £11.50, Amazon

    For those who like plenty of space to organise their day – teachers and academics as well as more studious students – these stylish page-a-day diaries by Pirongs are the answer.

    Available in a range of bold colours and customisable with pen loops, elastics and embossed silver text, they include an at-a-glance year planner and pages for notes, contacts and timetables.

    Also available in A4 for those who like a whopping great desk diary in which to plan their lives by the hour.

    Letts Edge A5 week-to-view 18-month diary: £12.99, Amazon

    This minimalist, soft cover volume is printed on sustainable paper, using eco-friendly soy-based ink, and is replete with globe-trotting info, such as international holidays, dialling codes and time zones.

    Notwithstanding these additions, this is a relatively slim and lightweight diary that makes smart use of space – with each left hand page divided into the week’s seven days and the right hand leaf left clear for more free-wheeling notes and reminders.

    There’s a useful planner, with six months to a spread, and extra pages for timetables and more notes. This is a sophisticated looking product and about the right scale of genuinely useable diary for many people.

    And with 18 months covered (until the end of 2019) it’s good value too.

    Buy now

    Esmie White Cranes medium week-to-view diary: £23.99, Waterstones

    Not the cheapest, but this elegant tome features a cover made from silk screen printed paper made in Kyoto, Japan that has been hand bound in England to produce a product that is a little luxury to have in your bag.

    It has contacts and notes pages, plus a month-per-page calendar at the front, and is lightweight enough to be carried around.

    BusyB Mid-year 17-month diary: £14.99, BusyB

    For anyone who has to run other people’s lives as well as their own, this diary – which covers you all the way to the end of 2019 – is a stroke of genius.

    Each spread covers one week, but is divided into four columns so you can easily keep track of where your other half, children, or team members need to be.

    Alternatively, the extra columns could be used to plan meals, diarise social engagements or make to-do lists.

    This clever diary also features pockets for stashing bits of paper, tear-off list-making pages, space for contacts, birthdays, timetables, notes and reminders. The organising world is your oyster.

    Buy now

    Collins Legacy pocket mid-year diary: £6.99, Amazon

    A professional looking option for those on the go who need something compact to have with them at all times.

    Not one for those who like to wax lyrical, due to its diminutive size, but features handy travel info plus pages for timetables and a planner.

    Filofax Finsbury pocket organiser: £39.33, Amazon

    The smartphone killed the Filofax. Or maybe it didn’t. Many of us have love/hate relationships with our electronic devices, there are few things so good for clearing the head as noting reminders and to-do lists on paper rather than a handset.

    This smart pocket organiser, for which you can buy academic calendar inserts as well as a range of other refills such as to-do lists and contacts pages, is made from real leather that will last a lifetime.

    Best of all, it has a zip purse, and space for a couple of cards, so when you want to travel light you can leave your wallet – and maybe even your phone – behind. Still a great gift for someone starting an academic course or a job.

    Paperchase Kraft A5 2 days to a page diary: £10, Paperchase

    This chunky, zero nonsense volume is encased in neutral brown card that begs to be personalised, and lies fully flat on a desk thanks to its ring-binding.

    There’s half a page of diary per day, plus extra pages at the back for contacts and notes, a planner at the front and some info, such as conversion tables.

    Buy now

    Collins Scandi A5 day-to-a-page diary: £11.99, Ryman

    This chunky ring-bound option is perfect for anyone who gets annoyed by diaries that won’t lay flat, and comes complete with tabs for easy flicking between months.

    There are whole pages divided into half hour slots for each day, plus pages for timetables and notes, leaving plenty of scope to be ultra organised. It also includes a load of (mostly) useful information at the front, including contact details for academic organisations, such as funding bodies, exam boards and subject associations.

    This is a good product for 2018/19, and will hopefully appear in a wider range of colours in the future.

    Moleskine Harry Potter week-to-view large mid-year 2018-2019 diary: £21.99, Ryman

    Even in this digital age, Moleskine is cool. For a decent chunk of the population, Harry Potter is also cool. This, then, is the diary for them.

    Resembling some kind of spell book with its red and gold cover, and featuring images of a moonlit Hogwarts on the inner cover, this limited edition diary is certainly one for the fans.

    But it is a practical thing too, with Moleskine’s usual high quality finishing, an expandable pocket for stashing stray bits of paper and a ribbon bookmark.

    The right hand side of each spread is left blank for notes, with the left divided into the days of the week. It covers 18 months until the end of 2019.

    Verdict: best academic year diaries

    For a good value option that feels hard-wearing and practical, a Pirongs diary is the one to pick.

    The BusyB is a fantastic idea for anyone trying to juggle multiple lives, and for a spot of luxury gifting, the Filofax has still got it.

    The secret world of diary hunters | Books

    Sally MacNamara has long told her four children that if there’s a fire in her Seattle home, they should rescue Olga first. Olga isn’t the youngest family member or a beloved pet – in fact, MacNamara has never met Olga in person. The “Olga” that is so precious to the 63-year-old online seller is a 118-year-old diary written by a woman of the same name. Beginning in 1902, the diary chronicles the experiences of a young immigrant who was raised in a strict religious environment in America. “She did not care what she wrote, which I love about her,” MacNamara says. She purchased the diary online in 2005 – it is now one of her most prized possessions.

    Over the past 35 years, MacNamara has read more than 8,000 strangers’ diaries. As a child, her mother would take her “dump diving” to salvage objects – when she discovered an old, handwritten piece of paper in the trash one day, she was immediately intrigued. MacNamara’s father killed himself when she was 13 and he left behind a locked trunk of papers that has now been lost. “I didn’t want that to happen to other people, so I started collecting and keeping people’s diaries and letters,” she says. “I fall in love with people I haven’t even seen.”

    At first, MacNamara bought diaries in antique shops, but when a friend introduced her to eBay in 1998, she began using the auction site to buy and sell. She has the enviously simple username “diaries”, and 8,062 pieces of feedback on her profile prove her claims about the number of personal papers she’s collected. Yet while MacNamara has more than two decades’ experience trading strangers’ secrets, her hobby has recently become more widespread. On YouTube, videos entitled “I bought a stranger’s diary” are incredibly popular – an October 2019 video racked up 300,000 views, while the video that started the trend in December 2017 has been watched by over 6.4 million people.

    Clearly the mystery and intrigue of reading someone’s personal history can be compelling. But should we be troubled by the inherent voyeurism? Or – as Observer literary critic Kate Kellaway once said on the subject – “do people who keep diaries secretly hope someone will read them?”

    Joanna Borns, 35, is a writer from New York with 10,000 YouTube subscribers. Borns first started the YouTube trend for reading strangers’ diaries three years ago – since then, she’s purchased five diaries, which cost between £20 and £40 each. “It’s interesting to see how you’re similar to a totally random stranger,” Borns says. “The voyeurism of peeking inside somebody’s private thoughts appeals to people. On YouTube, people love a story, they love a narrative, even a mundane diary can turn into a little drama.”

    Private lives: most diary writers never intend their words to be read by others

    Borns thinks “a lot” about the “moral aspects” of her videos, and says all but one of the diaries she’s shared have been from deceased individuals. “I certainly don’t want to broadcast anyone’s personal information – I do change the names,” she says; she also avoids sharing “dark” thoughts that diarists recorded. MacNamara is also careful where diaries end up, but jokes: “When I go to heaven people will come up to me and say I’ve read their diary and I’m going to go, ‘Oh shoot, I did, didn’t I?’”

    How exactly do old diaries end up on eBay? Borns says most seem to come from estate sales. Victoria is a 58-year-old from Cheltenham who has been selling love letters and diaries online since 2004 (she has asked to be identified by her first name only). She procures diaries in flea markets and car boot sales for up to £20 and sells them on for between £30 and £60. “You go to one of these car boot sales and you find a box and it’s scruffy and insignificant and it’s wet, and you open it up and it’s a bundle of wonderful yellowing letters tied up with a ribbon,” she says, “You’re just blown away.” Her favourite diary was written by a civilian woman pilot during the Second World War – she sold it to someone in America for hundreds of pounds.

    Yet, remarkably, some people sell their own diaries. On eBay, I come across one going for £200 – it chronicles the years 2011-2019 in the diarist’s life, but they won’t tell me why they’re selling. I have more luck with Marika, a 16-year-old from Poland who recently sold her cousin’s diary for £45. “We noticed that many Americans like to buy such things… My cousin said it was a good way to make some money,” says Marika. The diary is extremely fresh – it records Marika’s cousin’s life from 2019 to May 2020. “She didn’t let me read her diary. She would not like me to know her secrets,” she says. “However she doesn’t mind if a stranger living on another continent reads it. They will probably never meet.”

    A man from Virginia purchased the Polish teen’s diary – who knows why? Although the trend is undeniably voyeuristic, many collectors have a grander purpose. Polly North is the 41-year-old director of the Great Diary Project. Since 2007, she has rescued more than 10,000 of them. “A lot of people have traditionally disregarded the importance of these diaries,” North says. She believes historians can learn about marginalised people via journals. Yet North also receives a huge number of donations from modern diarists, who can opt to make their journals immediately available or can seal them for decades (amazingly, most people are happy to have their diaries read and shared straight away). North’s favourite is from a “virtually illiterate” woman who was brought up in a trailer park in California and is still alive. “There’s no capital letters, there’s no punctuation… It’s stripped down, it’s raw, it doesn’t tick any conventional literary boxes, but it still achieves something that’s magical.”

    MacNamara has sold diaries to museums and universities. Her most valuable was by a preacher who met the Native American leader Sitting Bull in the 1860s (she sold it for £8,000). She also has the diary of a “gangster girlfriend” from 1934. Yet like North, MacNamara enjoys diaries that others consider insignificant.

    ‘There’s no diary I’ve read that doesn’t have an incredible story to tell.’ Illustration: Roberto Cigna/The Observer

    “One of the greatest diaries I ever got was a 1927 diary of a man whose wife had died. I got that the year my husband was killed in a construction accident – I felt everything this man felt.” There is often tragedy in lost diaries. MacNamara has one from 2000 in which a woman suffered sexual abuse. At the bottom of one entry, she scribbled: “I really hope my life doesn’t turn out to be a storage unit. ” MacNamara asked the seller where he found the diary. His reply? “Storage unit.”

    I recently purchased a handful of diaries from eBay to experience the phenomenon first hand. I could smell two from the late 1940s as soon as I opened the package. It’s a scent I associate with old Asterix comics, but might be better described as the dustiest corner of an antique shop – the scent of leather and paper and of being forgotten. I also bought a series of diaries spanning from the 50s to the 90s, all written by one man.

    The diaries include interesting and accidental bits of social history – I’m intrigued by talk of bible classes, mining and a scribbled “Wowee!” of shock after a cinema ticket costs our writer £1.75 in 1981. A long, thin red diary from 1992 is my favourite, simply because it begins with a list entitled “Party – 23rd Feb”. Harry and Jane, Arnold and Sue, and Roger and Pam all have ticks by their names indicating they can make it – so can Mark, riding solo. But why was David written so near the top and crossed out? I can feel the anxiety in the question mark near Alan’s name.

    When I read a journal from 1962, I understand the appeal of strangers’ diaries. For an hour, I become engrossed by the January-May of a man named George whose personal details I will omit, but whose highly personal details I will share with you.

    George began 1962 with a police summons for speeding, and throughout January he took a young woman named Penelope to the theatre and cinema regularly. But there’s frequent talk of Ruth – whom he can never seem to be alone with. However, on 26 January, he “pairs off” with Barbara at Rosemary’s party. I read the tiny appointment book as if it were a romance novel. By 29 January, Jan has been added to the equation, but on 1 February Penelope dumps George.

    ‘You can be blown away’: bundles of old diaries can be picked up at jumble sales and car-boot sales.

    On 22 February, George dances with a new woman named Mary and deliberately ignores Jan – the very next day, he has a theatre date with Barbara. When Sandra phones two days later and the pair quarrel, he ominously writes: “No theatre for her.” By 10 March, Sandra and George have apparently reached a “mutual decision” to call things off (when were they on?). On 19 March, our hero has “a rather exciting time” with a new woman named Sue.

    My favourite entry comes in the clueless scribblings of the following day: “Asked Jan if she wanted to come to the ball, but she sidled out of giving a reply. Funny girl.” We then see a botched attempt to impress Sue’s parents via the filling of a coal bucket – and suddenly Sue is cancelling dates. On 2 April, I actually gasp aloud when George and Sue go to the fair and Sue declares that she has decided to go steady with Peter!

    This diary is one of a handful by the same man – I anxiously flick to his last notebook, from the 1990s, to see where our diarist ends up. If you’re worried that George may have lost his player credentials with age, don’t be. A 2 May 1992 entry from a Tenerife holiday declares: “Mediocre meal booked at special restaurant, but SUPERB pair of long legs opposite me.

    Would George be happy that I read his diaries? The kind of person who records romantic entanglements might be pleased that someone would marvel at his prowess 58 years later. Still, it feels inherently wrong to share his stories (which is why, in the above retelling, all of the names have been changed). Many diaries sold online are by people who are long dead, but this isn’t always the case. MacNamara was able to reunite a daughter with her mother’s diary from 1942 – her mother was in a care home with Alzheimer’s. “They’d read it to her and in that brief moment, her memory came back to that time.”

    Olga is long gone – a few years ago, MacNamara visited her grave in Wisconsin. Yet through her diary, the young immigrant girl lives on. “So many people compare their lives to the media and think they don’t have a life,” MacNamara says, “There’s no diary that I’ve read that doesn’t have an incredible story to tell. We all have a story: we will all suffer hardships, we will all have great joy. You think you’re alone in the world, but you’re not.”

    90,000 The official position of the Russian Federation: shares in the summer of 2019 were dispersed as part of the counter-terrorist operation

    Russia replied to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Special Rapporteur for Human Rights and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to questions related to the dispersal of protests in the summer of 2019. The response on behalf of the Russian Federation in the United Nations was published on the website of the special rapporteur on human rights.

    The document states that the Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees the right to freedom of assembly, but, in accordance with the European Convention on Human Rights, the right to freedom of assembly can be limited in accordance with the law and in the interests of state security or public welfare, to prevent disorder and crimes.

    The representative office of the Russian Federation emphasizes that in accordance with the law, it is impossible to hold public events if they are not agreed with the authorities. At the same time, the authors of the document assure that the state should not fully control the activities of event organizers and that events may even be of a protest nature. However, due to the serious risks it is necessary to prevent the possibility of such events that do not represent the exercise of the right to peaceful assembly.

    As for the actual actions in July and August 2019, the document directly states that the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow has prepared a “special plan” to prevent “events that were not agreed in accordance with the established procedure and other antisocial gatherings.” … “In accordance with the developed plan, a number of counter-terrorism measures were taken in places where events could have taken place that were not coordinated with the executive branch in accordance with a preliminary prepared protocol,” the authors of the document say.They emphasize that the actions of the employees of the internal organs were in accordance not only with the legislation of the Russian Federation, but also with the 1979 Declaration on the Police adopted in Strasbourg.

    The document says that on July 27, the police detained 1431 people (according to OVD-Info, 1373), after which they opened 1225 administrative cases. On August 3, 941 people were detained (according to OVD-Info, 1001), 922 administrative cases were initiated. On August 10, 136 people were detained (according to OVD-Info, 352, 256 of them in Moscow), administrative cases are not mentioned.

    The Russian mission to the UN emphasizes the right of Russian citizens to a fair trial, and also points to the possibility of challenging the court decision and to the law on compensation for violation of the right to legal proceedings.

    Only about 15 people are mentioned in the document, on whom administrative cases were initiated. Most of them – due to the fact that they filed complaints about illegal actions of law enforcement agencies, but the relevant departments did not find grounds for conducting inspections.(Among these people, in particular, Konstantin Konovalov was mentioned, whose leg was broken during his arrest on July 27 – this fact is not indicated in the document. )

    The persons involved in criminal cases of mass riots (Article 212 of the Criminal Code) and the use of violence against government officials (Article 318 of the Criminal Code), as well as repeated violations of the procedure for holding public events (Article 212.1 of the Criminal Code) are also mentioned, but not all.

    • A series of protests in Moscow in July and August 2019 was prompted by the refusal to admit a number of independent candidates to the elections to the Moscow City Duma.The rallies on July 27 and August 3 were violently dispersed by the police. On August 10, a large, coordinated rally took place in Moscow in support of the suspended candidates and detainees, as well as those prosecuted under criminal charges in connection with the protests. On the same day, actions were held in a number of cities, which ended in detentions. OVD-Info published a large report on the various types of persecution that the protesters were subjected to.

    90,000 Five good reasons why you should quit smoking now

    Advice to those who have decided to seriously quit smoking is given by the chief pulmonologist of the regional health ministry, head of the pulmonology department of the Krasnodar regional hospital No. 1, Larisa Shulzhenko.

    Why quit smoking right now

    1. Smoking is literally and figuratively “money for air”. Calculate your monthly and yearly cigarette spending. What percentage of your income goes towards maintaining this habit? Is it worth it? What do you deny yourself from it?

    2. Not smoking is one of the main manifestations of your concern for the health of your loved ones. A big danger – especially for children and pregnant women – is the forced “passive” smoking. It promotes the development of allergic conjunctivitis, disruptions in immunity, the early development of senile hyperopia. The mucous membrane of the eyes in children is especially sensitive to air pollution from tobacco smoke.

    3. This is really serious damage to your personal health! It is associated with the chemical composition of the inhaled tobacco smoke and its high temperature.At the moment of puffing, tobacco and tissue paper ignite, forming about 1200 harmful substances: nicotine, carbon monoxide, soot, benzopyrene, formic and hydrocyanic acids, arsenic, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, acetylene, radioactive polonium-219 and lead-210, etc. e. This bouquet goes straight into the body and contributes to the development of cancer!

    4. Smoking spoils your appearance, your teeth “turn yellow”; negatively affects the oral cavity, the gastrointestinal mucosa, the function of the endocrine glands. It leads to vasospasm, impairs memory and attention, and leads to a decrease in mental performance.

    5. Smoking leads to early death. For humans, a lethal dose of nicotine is contained in 20–25 cigarettes. The smoker does not die, because this dose is introduced gradually, usually over the course of a day, and not in one dose. Also, nicotine is partially neutralized by the formaldehyde of tobacco tar. According to the World Health Organization, tobacco smoking is the leading preventable cause of premature death.The mortality rate among smokers is 30–80 percent higher than among nonsmokers and rises with the number of cigarettes smoked.

    Small Step Techniques ·
