China will connect Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan by one road. The grandiose project is discussed several years, and, it seems, that just now the project has found concrete lines. But, perhaps, discussions concerning the future of the railroad are still similar “frying fish before it's caught”, and have already led to tension of the relations between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, and, apparently, that is only the beginning. But so far let’s take some figures. Here what the Kyrgyz information portals write concerning future railroad:...

Many of us for certain heard about the "amusing" legal processes taking place in courts of some countries. About processes in which completely or partially, there was no common sense. Well, for example, the robber has got into the house in the absence of owners, has collected all valuable there, but couldn't get out back.

We also know that at some point these states argued among themselves for a priority way of development. As a rule it came to an end with wars. Unfortunately, such stories happen and today. The modern...

Harry Kane beat Tunisia on Monday night, but he did more than that. He beat the hand of history that was just minutes away from reasserting its cold grip over this England team, just as their World Cup was beginning. With one normal-time minute left of their opener, England were heading for one of their most familiar stories of all: the disappointing 1-1 draw in which a strong start gave way to nerves, an equalizer, a burdened, anxious second half and ultimately an underwhelming point. Against Sweden in 2002, USA in 2010 and France in Euro...
