London and St Pertersburg (Russia) on video recorded by accident (instead of taking Photo)...

My Mother-In-Law had a trip to Europe with defective camera and sometimes instead of taking pictures she recorded video clips. I have combined all of them to this clip. 
Looks like hidden camera effect... 

Below are pictures that were successfully captured from that camera:

Землетрясение в Ричмонде Вергиния - 5.8 балов против 7.5 1966 в Ташкенте

Сегодня было землятресение с эпицентром около нашего города (Richmond VA). Анфиса , жена испугана сильно, приехала из офиса с двумя сотрудниками-друзьями проведать как мы тут дома. Я не заметил, т.к был в машине с сыном и его другом - возвращались с обеда в ресторане; заметили только , что светофоры выключились; дочь Ольга испытала как наш дом качало (она была на верху – 2.5 этаж).

В целом землетрясение средней тяжести, нет повреждений и травм – только испуг.

В детстве я пережил 7.5 балов землетрясение в Ташкенте 1966 г. См. фотку где я, мама (Аля) и брат Гера жили н заднем дворе все лето:

Jukebox The Ghost concert in Glen Allen VA 2011

We went to Insbrook Pavilion (Glen Allen, VA) concert actually for "barenaked ladies" which is sucked in spite they are Canadian...!  Big surprise was the group called "Jukebox The Ghost" that performed before them with some British-Beatles-Cars influence/sound.

Here is me saying them - GOOD JOB!

Воскальчук Александр - Егорова Вероника

Почитал интервью ( и вспомнил мою последнюю встречу с моим старым другом К. Е. – 1999. Я зашел к ним домой (большая, только отстроенная квартира на против Ленфильма) по-прощаться перед отъездом в Штаты. И там помню подростка девочку которая не просто ходила но крутилась пританцовывая по дому...

А вот теперь это девушка берет пристижные призы по спортивным танцам!

About Me

My photo

I started my career in 1979 as an IBM/370 system engineer. In 1986 I got my PhD. in Robotics at St. Petersburg Technical University (Russia) and then worked as a professor teaching there CAD/CAM, Robotics and Computer Science for about 12 years. I published 30 papers and made several presentations for international conferences related to the Robotics, Artificial Intelligent and Computer fields. In 1999 I moved to the US and worked at Capital One bank in Richmond as a Capacity Planner. My first CMG paper was written and presented in 2001. The next one, "Global and Application Level Exception Detection System Based on MASF Technique," won a Best Paper award at CMG 2002 and was presented again at UKCMG 2003 in Oxford, England. My CMG 2004 paper about applying MASF technique to mainframe performance data was republished in the IBM z/Series Expo. I also presented my papers in Central Europe CMG conference and in numerous US regional meetings. I continue to enhance my exception detection methodologies. After working more than 2 years as the Capacity Management team lead for IBM, I had worked for SunTrust Bank for 3 years and then got back to IBM holding for 2+ years  Sr. IT Architect position. Currently I work for Capital One bank as IT Manager for IT Capacity Management group. In 2015 I have been elected to the CMG ( board of directors,
