Jack Ryan picked me up


Standing Ovation, Seated

“To blab is to help the enemy!” 1954 Soviet poster

Flying 4 hours from London to Moscow and from Moscow to London the next day could be a bit tiring were it not for the new Jack Ryan movie on board the plane.

It is always a delight for a Russian to see Russia portrayed in a Hollywood blockbuster as a country of hapless oligarchs who can’t contract a decent ex-KGB killer and have to hire obese students from Uganda to do the job. Why Uganda?! A black-skinned killer in Moscow must be a wizard to beat the challenge of remaining inconspicuous.

You also know it is a Hollywood kind of Moscow when all roads in it take you to the Kremlin, either instantly or eventually. No. It is possible to live in Moscow and not see the Red Square for years. The FSB would be happy if foreign spies gravitated towards the…

Gaining Muscle Quickly with the Muscle Maximizer


How to build muscle quickly is something that people have been trying to figure out for quite some time now.

Most people go to a nutritionist or to a fitness trainer for answers. But the fact of the matter is until you fully understand the process yourself, you will not be able to make too much of a difference to your body. As far as muscle building is concerned, until you fully understand how your body works, how can you hope to shape it the way you want anyway? Whether you want to look more attractive or increase your fitness levels, the fact of the matter is that when you are using nutrition and exercise in tandem, you will get much better results in a much shorter period of time.

This is something you will definitely be able to do with the muscle maximizer.  Haven’t you heard of this revolutionary product before? It was developed by Kyle Leon and is one of the best ways for a person to build muscle in the world. The main reason it is so popular is because it really works. It focuses completely on nutrition and as long as you are getting the proper nutrition, your muscles will definitely grow the way you want them to. I can’t stress enough on how important diet is when it comes to body building. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why your diet can affect your body building plans.


Your muscles are basically made of protein. This means that if you want them to grow, you will need to increase your protein intake appropriately. After all, if there is no additional protein in your body, how can you expect your muscles to grow? When you are consuming the right amount of protein, you will also need to keep fat consumption down to a minimum and this is something that the muscle maximizer is great at.

Do you know the biggest advantage of this product? It allows you to create a fully customized plan which is specific to your body type and characteristics. This means that each person’s plan will be different. And if there is a food which you don’t like, the guide will even suggest alternatives for you to choose from. Don’t worry about calorie and fat consumption though as they will remain the same. The only thing you need to worry about is working out hard in the gym. Your nutritional requirements will be taken care of by this guide, but unless you work your body in the gym, you will not get any positive results.
