Originally posted by elisa_rolle at I.A.R. Wylie & Sara Josephine Baker
Ida Alexa Ross Wylie (Born: Mar 16, 1885 in Melbourne, Australia; Died: Nov 04, 1959 in Princeton, New Jersey), better known as I.A.R. Wylie, was one of the most respected authors of her generation. Sara Josephine Baker (November 15, 1873 – February 22, 1945) was an American physician notable for making contributions to public health, especially in New York City. Sara Josephine Baker wrote very little about her personal life, however she spent much of the later part of her life with Ida Alexa Ross Wylie, a novelist and essayist from Australia, and self-identified as a 'woman-oriented woman'. When Baker retired in 1923, she started to run their household while writing her autobiography. In 1935, Baker and Wylie decided to move to Princeton, New Jersey, together with their friend Louise Pearce. While Baker and Pearce left little documentation of their personal lives, Wylie was open about her orientation, although she did not identify either Baker or Pearce in her writings.

She was an established poet and novelist honored by the journalistic and literary establishments of her time, and known around the world. Her dozen novels sold well enough to earn her a living, but Wylie's non-fiction (including her autobiographical work) was equally well-received, and she was unusual as an author in that she enjoyed both popular and critical success. Born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1885, she was taken by her parents to London in 1888, where her mother died soon after. She was raised by her father, Alexander Coghill Wylie, who utilized his own notions of bringing up children -- she was kept out of school and given large numbers of books to read, and she was taught to rely on her instincts until she was in her teens. She spent three years in finishing school in Belgium, and then studied in England, followed by years of studying in Germany, where she also taught and began writing. She became involved in the women's suffrage movement in England during the early teens, and made her first visit to America, which became her permanent home decades later in 1917.

Sara Josephine Baker (November 15, 1873 – February 22, 1945) was an American physician notable for making contributions to public health, especially in New York City. She is best known for (twice) tracking down the infamous index case known as Typhoid Mary, as well as vastly improving hygiene in the immigrant communities of Hell's Kitchen. Her fight against the damage that widespread urban poverty and ignorance once wreaked upon children, especially newborns, is perhaps her most lasting legacy. In 1917, she noted that babies born in the United States faced a higher mortality rate than soldiers fighting in World War I, drawing a great deal of attention to her cause.

Sara Josephine Baker wrote very little about her personal life, however she spent much of the later part of her life with Ida Alexa Ross Wylie, a novelist and essayist from Australia, and self-identified as a 'woman-oriented woman'. When Baker retired in 1923, she started to run their household while writing her autobiography. In 1935, Baker and Wylie decided to move to Princeton, New Jersey, together with their friend Louise Pearce. While Baker and Pearce left little documentation of their personal lives, Wylie was open about her orientation, although she did not identify either Baker or Pearce in her writings.

Baker was born in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1873 to a wealthy Quaker family. At the age of 16, Baker decided on a career in medicine after her father and brother died of typhoid. After studying chemistry and biology at home, she enrolled in the New York Infirmary Medical College, a medical school for women, founded by the sisters and physicians Elizabeth Blackwell and Emily Blackwell, and graduated in 1898. In 1901, Baker passed the civil service exam and qualified to be a medical inspector at the Department of Health, working as a school inspector. After working diligently in the school system, she was offered an opportunity to help lower the mortality rate in Hell's Kitchen, which was considered the worst slum in New York at the turn of the century, with as many as 4,500 people dying every week. Baker decided to focus on the infant mortality rate in particular, as babies accounted for some 1,500 of the weekly deaths. Most of the deaths were caused by dysentery, though parental ignorance and poor hygiene were often indirectly to blame.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher

С огромным отрывом обойдя 25 государств, на первое место стремительно выходит Российская Федерация. Жаль только, что повод не очень приятный – речь идет о количестве самоубийств. Инфографика с изображением этой тенденции сейчас разлетается по интернету. Вот она.

ПИСАТЕЛЬНИЦА, ПОСАДИВШАЯ В ТЮРЬМУ ЮРИЯ ДОМБРОВСКОГО

Юрий Домбровский, писатель, прошедший сквозь сталинские лагеря и вынесший оттуда роман «Факультет ненужных вещей».

Всего Домбровского арестовывали четыре раза. Первый раз, в 1933 году, ограничились ссылкой в Алма-Ату. Второй раз, в 1936, Домбровский несколько месяцев отсидел в изоляторе. Третий арест отправил его на Колыму.
Четвертый раз Домбровского арестовали в 1949.
И здесь мы подходим к личности Ирины Стрелковой, которая дала против писателя показания.

Вот о ней поговорим подробнее.




Выйдя из колымских лагерей в 1943 году, Домбровский вновь очутился в Алма-Ате. Там он познакомился с милой девушкой Ирой, которая попала в Казахстан в эвакуацию, но не просто так, а как собственный корреспондент «Пионерской правды». Попутно Ира училась на факультете журналистики Алма-Атинского универа.
Она сошлась с другом Домбровского Алексеем Брагиным и переехала к молодому человеку в общежитие.

Прикольно, что Россия сейчас - это не березки, тополя, а плешивый подполковник ФСБ.Прикольно, что " Россия" выступает то в роли бравого моряка, то пилота самолета, то кормильца тигров и китов. На самом деле у" подпола" комплексов- выше крыши. Самые жуткие фобии - по поводу роста. Карты выпали так, что с Димоном приходится бабло страны пилить. А у того рост по официальным данным- 162 см. ( враги в реале пишут про 152) "Россия" на всех фотках ниже владельца тосканских виноградников со "своими 170"

Российская наркоторговля безжалостна. Пока дилеры зарабатывают миллиарды, сотни тысяч людей оказываются в тюрьме, прощаются с жизнью или превращаются в живой труп с полуразложившимися внутренними органами и разрушенной жизнью.


Россию накрыла настоящая наркотическая чума, и этот темный мир существует буквально в двух шагах от нас.



«Лента.ру» выяснила, кто стоит за самым кровожадным бизнесом XXI века, как он пустил корни в России и что испытывают те, кто стал его жертвой. Мы отправляемся исследовать Hydra — крупнейший рынок наркотиков в истории человечества.


ВНИМАНИЕ! ПРОИЗВОДСТВО, СБЫТ И ПЕРЕСЫЛКА НАРКОТИЧЕСКИХ СРЕДСТВ И ПСИХОТРОПНЫХ ВЕЩЕСТВ ЯВЛЯЕТСЯ УГОЛОВНЫМ ПРЕСТУПЛЕНИЕМ И ПРЕСЛЕДУЕТСЯ ПО ЗАКОНУ (СТАТЬИ 228-231 УГОЛОВНОГО КОДЕКСА РОССИЙСКОЙ ФЕДЕРАЦИИ).
