The Russians in Bulgaria and Rumelia in 1828 and 1829; During the Campaigns of the Danube the Sieges of Brailow Varna Silistria Shumla and the Passage of the Balkan by Marshall Diebitch: Helmuth Moltke
This is one very big letter for all Bulgarians translated this time in English, which discusses some pension curiosities, advices to the pensioners, propositions for their bettering, meaning about the social policy in Bulgaria, about the fight with misery, again some ideas and propositions, meaning about the end of world capitalism, how to better our image before the world, and other topics. It is from an invented (yet literary) personage, but in reality from an ancestral intellectual, former scientific assistant, with 2.5 tertiary educations, received in 3 foreign countries, who knows 3.5 foreign languages, and for more than 25 year is unemployed, now at last pensioner. It has been published by NOT a single Bulgarian authority and for that reason I publish it now around the world. After an year I have translated it in Russian and German, and in English have written one introductory material (´´Hellow-Mellow´´) which explains what is in this Letter and many other things, but at the end I give it whole, too.
Steve Berry´s short story finds an adventurer in a strange and forbidding land, in search of a long lost treasure, and very much in harm´s way. As a favor to enigmatic billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen, Cassiopeia Vitt treks into Bulgaria´s Rila mountains in search of a buried stash of exceedingly rare artifacts from a bygone civilization: the ancient tomb of a Thracian king. But when her presence is discovered by a shadowy group of Russians secretly mining the area, she needs a way out. Who to trust becomes the question, and her life depends on choosing the right option. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

Learn about Armistice Day with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Armistice Day is a day put aside to commemorate the ceasefire which effectively ended the ´´Great War´´, as World War One was previously known. It happened at 11 am on 11 November 1918. The Allied Forces - made up of the United Kingdom, the Russian empire, France, Belgium, Canada, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Japan, Portugal, and the US - were the victorious against the Central Powers. The Central Powers - made up of the German empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Kingdom of Bulgaria - appealed for an armistice as their resources and manpower were being run down by the onslaught of the Allied Forces. The word ´´armistice´´ signifies only a temporary ceasefire.

Scaling a new peak of rash overambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000 kilometer route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively subzero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his ´so-small bicycle´ are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58 degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 1.
