Vlog #1: I'm Learning the Language of RASPUTIN!

The Polyglot Files Channel has a series vlogging about learning the Russian Language on YouTube.

Short version: I'm learning Russian. Long version: I recently read that a polyglot was someone who spoke 6 or more languages. Currently, I'm only studying 5.

I have also used the course book The New Penguin Russian Course: A Complete Course for Beginners (Penguin Handbooks) by Nicholas J. Brown.

Checking In for Your Flight at Domodedovo Airport

Here is the meeting place and information boards at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow, Russia near the main entrance. The photo was taken from the second floor.

How do I check in for my flight at Domodedovo Airport?

When you arrive, find these big boards by the meeting point and they will list the kiosk where your airline is located.

When you check-in airport might be so busy that the airlines only have their kiosk for a few hours surrounding the flight time.

If you know that you will arrive more than 2-3 hours before your flight, check Domodedovo's site to see if your airline has self-check in kiosks. Not all airlines use those kiosks it seems, so it is pretty typical to see people with luggage in the seating lounges upstairs.

Most of the shopping and food is upstairs or past security.

A video by Zoey Arielle with inspiration about multiple streams of income. Video: ZOEY'S DIARY 06: MY INCOME + WHY I AM RICH. It isn't exactly what the title sounds like. Some people surely like to talk about how much money they make, but this young woman is inspirational. She's the kind of YouTube that was inspired by The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss.

The world of The Jetsons, reimagined

Cool re-imagined start to the old cartoon The Jetsons. The world of The Jetsons gets a scientific makeover. Arconic has reimagined the year 2062, through the eyes of leading futurists, our engineers, and filmmaker Justin Lin. How much fun is this? It was one of my favorite cartoons for awhile when I was younger.
