Early life Bazhov was born in Sysert, a city in the Urals (Ural Mountains) famous for having provided many fighters in the Russian Revolution in 1917 (1917 Russian Revolution). His father Pyotr Bazhov was the master of the welding shop of the Sysertskogo Steel Plant. His family, like most in factory towns, struggled to make ends meet and had virtually no political power in Czarist Russia (Russian Empire). From these beginnings, Bazhov found a calling in public service. Between 1889 and 1893 he studied in a religious school in Yekaterinburg. He took part in many protests, the most famous one resulting in him receiving a note of political disloyalty from his reactionary teacher on his certificate. The city made a huge impression on him, and he would return to live there many years later. In 1899, Bazhov graduated third in his class from Perm Theological Seminary, where Alexander Stepanovich Popov and D.N. Mamin (Dmitry Mamin-Sibiryak) previously studied. He dreamt of attending Tomsk Seminary University, but was rejected. Instead, he worked temporarily as a Russian language teacher, first in Yekaterinburg, then later in Kamyshlov. From 1907 to 1914 Bazhov worked at the Women’s Diocesan College teaching Russian language. During this time he met and married Valentina Ivanitsky, a graduate from the Diocesan School. She was his muse for many of his poems about love and happiness. About 70% of Siberia's people live in cities. Novosibirsk is the largest city in Siberia, with a population of about 1.5 million, followed by Yekaterinburg (1.3 million, Urals), Omsk (1.1 million), Chelyabinsk (1.07 million, in the Urals), Krasnoyarsk (0.91 million), Barnaul (0.60 million), Irkutsk (0.59 million), Kemerovo (0.52 million), Tyumen (0.51 million), Tomsk (0.48 million), Nizhny Tagil (0.39 million, Urals), Kurgan (Kurgan, Kurgan Oblast) (0.36 million), Ulan Ude (0.36 million), Chita (Chita, Zabaykalsky Krai) (0.32 million). Brief details After opening as an American style brewery restaurant in 1998 in St Petersburg, Tinkoff expanded to become Russia's fourth largest independent brewery, opening a 2 million hectoliter state-of-the-art brewery in 2002 in Pushkin (Pushkin (town)) near St Petersburg. The company opened several more brewpubs across Russia. By 2005 the company had ten brewpubs, a firm and growing share of the market for premium lager, and was exporting to Europe and America. In July 2005 InBev bought the Pushkin brewery and the Tinkoff brand name for €167 million. Oleg Tinkov retained the chain of restaurants (located in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Samara, Russia, Novosibirsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Ufa, Yekaterinburg, Sochi, Almaty and Kazan) which he sold to Mint Capital in 2009. In May 2010, Mint Capital announced it was looking to sell. In late 2010, Mint Capital announced that it sold its interest in Tinkoff Brewery and although no price was announced, it was widely reported that the chain was offered for sale for $1 (and assumption of all debts). While the shooting down (1960 U-2 incident) of Francis Gary Powers' U-2 in 1960 is the first publicized success for the S-75, the first aircraft actually shot down by the S-75 was a Taiwanese Martin RB-57D Canberra high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft. In this case, the aircraft was hit by a Chinese-operated S-75 site near Beijing on October 7, 1959. Over the next few years, the Taiwanese ROCAF (Republic of China Air Force) would lose a number of aircraft to the S-75: both RB-57s and various drones (Unmanned aerial vehicle). On May 1, 1960, Gary Powers's U-2 was shot down while flying over the testing site near Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg), although it is thought to have taken 14 missiles to hit his high-flying plane. That action led to the U-2 Crisis of 1960. Additionally, Chinese S-75s downed five ROCAF-piloted U-2s based in Taiwan. http: area51specialprojects.com u2_blackcat_taiwan.html **Ufa - Ufa International Airport **Yekaterinburg – Koltsovo International Airport * wikipedia:Yekaterinburg commons:Екатеринбург
