Приветствую, ребят! Наконец-то возвращаюсь с фоткой Екатеринбурга, но лишь затем, чтобы поговорить о строительстве храма на месте сквера, ибо не могу молчать.
Начнём с того, что молебен, проведённый в защиту храма, напоминал очень странное зрелище. В добровольно-принудительном порядке на сие мероприятие были свезены 8 тысяч человек с различных организаций, предприятий и окрестных городов. Кто-то, конечно, пришёл «по зову сердца», но, судя по репортажам, большая часть толпы была абсолютно безучастной.
Власти с епархией пошли дальше и сумели подключить именитых актёров, в числе которых оказались Безруков, Пореченков, Галустян и Чадов. Постараемся поверить в то, что актёры искренне приехали поддержать строительство. Но даже это положение вызывает множество нареканий, поскольку московским артистам неизвестен местный контекст и ценность данной точки для горожан. Вот что говорит Чадов: «Никому не может ведь помешать церковь и как красивейшее с точки зрения архитектуры сооружение, и как духовный центр. Вообще, я за любое восстановление храмов».
Во-первых, ни о каком восстановлении речи не идёт. В этом плане изначальный проект по реконструкции Екатерининского собора на Площади Труда был бы честнее. Но на данном участке сложился уже совершенно иной градостроительный контекст, поэтому собору там просто нет места. Потом родилась совершенно фантасмагорическая идея по строительству храма на воде. Но тогда пруд удалось отстоять. И вот, новое место – сквер. При каждом «перемещении» проект собора кардинально менялся. Как вы понимаете, от исторического облика там не осталось ровным счётом ничего. Во-вторых, новый проект ужасен и бездарен: и как самостоятельное здание, и как часть уже сложившегося городского ландшафта. В-третьих, всё это подаётся так, будто в городе наметилась острая нехватка храмов и православная община взвыла о необходимости нового строительства. Так ли это? Тоже нет.
Кто же от этого выиграл? Чиновники и епархия. Они сумели протолкнуть идею строительства, прикрывшись компромиссом насчёт пруда и «поддержкой» в лице 8 тысяч участников молебна (что гораздо внушительнее жалких 1267 подписей в защиту сквера, собранных накануне). Кто от этого проиграл? Все мы. Приветствую, ребят! Наконец-то возвращаюсь с фоткой Екатеринбурга, но лишь затем, чтобы поговорить о строительстве храма на месте сквера, ибо не могу молчать.

When Romanie-Jade Tulloch (@cakefacerj) began using her face as her blank canvas, the creative possibilities skyrocketed. 🎨 🚀 “I remember thinking, why not try something artistic that will grab attention?” she says. “I knew from then on that using makeup to create illusions was exactly what I wanted to do.”
Drawing inspiration from Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet, the 20-year-old makeup artist from Nottingham, England, has always enjoyed painting. She brings that same creativity and attention to detail to her makeup looks — even incorporating real objects. “I use different props like paintbrushes, water glasses, honey jars, whatever comes to mind that suits the look,” she says. “I love the 3D element in my illusions.”
Romanie-Jade uses only makeup, not face paint, to create her looks, showing that makeup can transcend into a work of art. “I use makeup so people can see that there’s a lot more use out of that eyeshadow palette you don’t use a lot,” she says.
Today on our story and IGTV channel, breakfast is served courtesy of Romanie-Jade’s makeup skills.

Today is #StPatricksDay ☘️ and competitive Irish dancer Julia Sullivan (@julia.sullivann) is celebrating by performing around her hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. “Irish dance is an expression of our shared history,” Julia says. “When the Irish community gathers, music and dance are a vital part of the celebrations. It’s a distinctive signature of who we are.”
Currently, 19-year-old Julia is training for the 2019 World Irish Dancing Championships after winning fourth place last year in her age category. “Being an Irish dancer has connected me to my Irish family and heritage,” she adds.

Step up to the plate in your rainbow socks. “We try to teach our daughters that they can be anything they desire,” says Mel Karlberg (@melkarlbergphotography), the mom and photographer behind the lens. “The truth is that she doesn’t need that lesson. She’s teaching me every day by living that mantra.” #WHPSheInspiresMe

Sushi 🌯 🍩 🍕 and 🍔?! Pushing the limits of traditional 🍣 🥢 fuels the creativity at sushi restaurant WAVE (@wavemountdora), located in central Florida. “Owning a restaurant is a lot of hard work, but it is also some of the most rewarding,” says owner and chef Jonathan McKinney, who opened the restaurant in 2017. Years spent working in his parents’ restaurant taught him the business and “Instagram has allowed us to reach out to the world,” he says.

This March, we’re collaborating with BuzzFeed News reporter and producer Kassy Cho of @world to find and highlight women around the globe who are making an impact in their local community and on Instagram. ❤️
After she was bullied in school for her dark skin, 12-year-old Kheris Rogers (@kherispoppin) decided to start her own fashion line, Flexin’ In My Complexion, as a way to instill confidence in herself and others. “I have always had a passion for fashion, but I wanted it to have a positive message behind it,” said Kheris, who designs all the clothing with the help of her older sister and best friend, Taylor — who also manages her Instagram account. “It does not matter if your skin complexion is dark, fair, light, freckled, albino or even green! You should always love yourself from the inside out.”
Kheris said the messages she has received have helped her realize she is not alone: “There are millions of people around the world who can relate to my story in some way.”
