Poles take the knee only to God says Polish Ambassador

Europe Renaissance

Poland’s ambassador to Germany, Andrzej Przyłębski, has spoken out against players of the Polish national team kneeling before the start of the match in support of the much-derided and deeply controversial anti-White movement.

‘For me, it goes without saying that the Polish national team will not kneel before the matches during the European Football Championship,’ said Przyłębski toJunge Freiheit.

‘A real Pole kneels only before God, and possibly before the woman he proposes to. Footballers of colour are now among the football elite, they are wealthy, and they are valued and admired. So why should one kneel before them?’ questions the ambassador.

‘I find it inappropriate to make amends with the colonialism of the past epoch by bowing to people who had nothing to do with it and who were born in England or France, for example,’ explained Przyłębski.

‘Poland never had colonies, so it did not participate…

Nature is Talking are you Listening

Europe Renaissance

Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water. Lay your bed where the cat sleeps. Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm.

Boldly pick the mushroom on which the insects sit. Plant the tree where the mole digs. Build your house where the snake sits to warm itself. Dig your fountain where the birds hide from the heat.

Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds, you will reap all of the days’ golden grains. Eat more greens, you will have strong legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of the forest.

Swim often and you will feel on earth like the fish in the water. Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear.

Be quiet a lot, speak little, and silence will come in your…

Popeye the Sailor Man and Olive Oil really existed

Europe Renaissance

His real name was Frank Rocky Fiegel. He was born in 1868 in Poland. A retired sailor he was contracted by Wiebusch’s tavern in the city of Chester, Illinois, to clean the town’s lawlessness and maintain order. Rocky Fiegel was notorious for his belligerent attitude and firmly believed that everything could be sorted out with his fists.

Rocky Fiegel’s eye was deformed but it is not certain if this was a birth defect or consequence of a hard-won fight and this facial feature earned the former seaman the ‘Popeye’ sobriquet. Another distinguishing characteristic was his pipe-smoking manner which meant that when he was smoking his pipe he spoke through the corner of his mouth.

Like many rough men, he was at his most comfortable when in the company of children. However, there is no accounting of his imaginary adventures which boasts about the exploits of his physical strength, ensuring he…

What happened to these priceless Romanov tiaras after 1917 Revolution?

Europe Renaissance

Even Queen Elizabeth II has some old pieces of jewelry that once belonged to the Russian royal family.

The diamond, emerald and sapphire tiaras of the Romanov dynasty were remarkable for their beauty and opulence, and they were well known to other monarchies in Europe. This has to do with their unusual shape since most were reminiscent of the kokoshnik, an old type of Russian headdress. It was Catherine the Great who first brought the fashion for “Russian dress” to the court, and then in the middle of the 19th century under Nicholas I it was made mandatory. At official receptions, women began to wear diadems with a national flavor—“les tiares russes,” as they are called abroad.

Additionally, there were adaptable jewels that could be worn as tiaras or necklaces, and the pendant stones were…

BRANDED FOR ALL TIME

Europe Renaissance

Corporate identities are part of the advertising landscape. When out and about and long before we can make out the detail a company brand is identifiable. Many logos come to mind such as those of Shell, Cadbury, Virgin, carmakers and television giants BBC and ITV. Corporate bodies pay telephone numbers when acquiring or changing their logos. No upstart rival, even if their product was superior, could hope to compete against established brand names.

BT is a telecommunications company. BT does not manufacture telephones yet we often see the BT logo on equipment that we purchase. I realised why when I spotted a two-inch news story in a copy of the Financial Times. Any telephone manufacturing company wishing to use the BT logo on their product first acquires a licence to do so. This does not come cheap. I seem to recall that this figure is 10 per cent of the…

COPYWRITING, TRANSLATIONS AND GHOST-WRITING

Europe Renaissance

Professional writing services are not something many business owners use despite their importance to their shops, hotels, restaurants, their business. Fact: A single spelling mistake on a website’s home page will reduce sales by 50 per cent as it suggests professional sloppiness and possible fraud.

Although there is a pressing need for both translators and copywriters there is little demand for either. Translating is, of course, the conversion of say English to Spanish or Russian. The translation will be a faithful copy of the original content but like for like is rarely acceptable so avoid using Google translate. 

Russians who translate to English are fine at grammar but the results fail to communicate in a way English speakers are comfortable with. The translation is wooden and written in bureaucracy-speak. Russian businesses tend to favour copywriters whose first language is English.

Copy-writing and ghostwriting (enhancing) is a creative trade in which…
