The number of Americans taking their own lives in 2021 came close to the peak seen in 2018, the CDC says. The number of Americans who committed suicide in 2021 increased to a mind-boggling 48,183, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

From its very first days, the Soviet state sought to completely destroy the Orthodox Church and did it with unbelievable cruelty.

Truly great men often find that life’s practicalities get in the way of their more Utopian inclinations. Henry Ford, the great American industrialist and pioneer of the motoring class must have been a very enigmatic man.
During my stay in Sochi, we had a cool opportunity: to take a walk around the dacha (country villa) of the leader himself. It was a long drive, and stuffy, crowded public transport with Formula 1 drivers was not much fun. But we thought it would be worth it.
