Philip Ammerman Interview
Russia was by far the leading investor in Cyprus. The number of Russians living here is very large. And they are actually good people. They are law-abiding people. They make a real contribution to society. They bring a lot of things: they bring relatives and friends every year, they bring art and a number of art exhibitions, concerts, they organize cultural events. And this decision of the Cypriot government to make life as difficult as possible for the Russian companies is a bit strange. The question is why. On what basis do you make such a decision? I think it is American pressure which has led to this. The Cypriots were fine with the Russian presence here. But they had to choose. And they are choosing between something which is very tangible now and was tangible for the last 20 years and between something which is totally intangible. There is no American investment in Cyprus. There are no Americans living here. The American political support – I do not see how it can be trusted. So, the question is “why”.
Ivan Vasiliev: “Love is everywhere”
I am very interested in any new creativity on the stage. I’m rooting for more great thinking dancers and choreographers to appear. The evolution of dance is not something that I am indifferent to and its development interests me. The main thing is that the stage director is let out on the stage by the artists, not just for the sake of appearing on the stage, but in order to realise and convey to the viewer his thoughts and ideas.
Pavel Priluchny: “Cheer up!”
As such, I do not have an idol. I studied everywhere, gaining experience little by little. My first master was Anatoly Akhreev, associate professor of GITIS (The Russian Institute of Theatre Arts). The second master was Konstantin Raikin and the third was Sergei Golomazov. Here are three absolutely different, but equally remarkable, people who provided me with something to learn. I still learn from them when I look at some of their works or, specifically, when I utilise their works in my art.

In pursuit of a lucky star, we often confuse directions and fear steep turns. We are too engaged in unloved work. We dream of a weekend, but we spend our free time stupidly going back to our everyday circle. You cannot go with the flow – enduring a state of being unloved, hating the place where you live and finding reasons to change nothing. It is easy to only talk about change! How do you equip your ship on a journey for happiness and deploy the sail to catch the wind of transition? The answer is well-known to psychologists and people who live in harmony with themselves.

Superyacht Risk Whilst Under Repair, Refit or Rebuild
Congratulations! You’ve spent a day or two at the Monaco Yacht Show and succumbed to your first superyacht, possibly upgraded your current yacht or bought another to keep in a different hemisphere…. Now, to make your mark on the vessel with your own irreprehensible style! Before the yacht even enters the yard, make sure that all the parties involved know the complete picture and plan, whether it’s the lawyers drawing up the contracts, the working parties involved, the crews’ contracts whilst in refit or, most importantly, the yard’s waivers of liability. This is vitally important and, basically, transfers the shipyard’s liability during the works to the owner of the yacht, and, with that, the risk to the yacht’s hull and machinery insurance. I cannot stress how important it is to let your insurer know the yacht is in for work, and not to leave this to the last minute. Another important point of note is that, legally, the yacht captain, yacht managers or owners cannot sign any waivers of liability without express permission of the insurance company.
Fall to Get Up
There is no open door to the temple of success. Everyone enters his own door, which abruptly closes behind him; off limits to all others, even his own children.

Trouble will not grow to the extent of a tragedy, with a prologue and an epilogue, if you remain optimistic and balanced.

Architecture & Design
Rafael Porzycki. Philosophy of Architecture
Architecture is an exciting journey through the fantasy land with Grand Finale. It starts somewhere between a dream and the will to realise it – a desire to explore the mirage, to build it and to touch it. Firstly, comes an idea, very unclear at first and unexpected, like the sound of thunder. Because it appears so quickly, your brain cannot determine whether it is simply a delusion or not. Natural instinct alerts you to listen to the idea and judge its behavior. All circulating thoughts, borne in the essence of invention become notes and compose an extraordinary symphony expressed by the balance held within – the harmony of shapes, colors, numbers and engineering bonded tightly by the strong power of creation. This special marriage of art and science gives definition to empty spaces by creating surfaces and gives these spaces special functions to loyally serve the needs of humanity, as we live in a world governed by our requirements.
