"Kiev" - Circle Line station of the Moscow Metro. Opened March 14, 1954 in the section Belarusian - Park of Culture. Located between the stations Krasnopresnenskaya and Park of Culture. Goes to Filyovskaya and Intercession Arbatsko-line. The only Metro Ring line is not located in the Central Administrative District of Moscow.

Pilon deep-level station.

From 1954 to return to the city is the half-pace escalator (the work of architects IG Taranov, GS Tosunov, design engineers Sachkova LV, MV Golovinova), which leads to the general lobby with the same name station Arbatsko Intercession-line.

On the site there is an intermediate transfer station submarines. In front of the escalator on the circle line is preserved, this rarity plate.

In 1953, the post of General Secretary of the CPSU intrudes Nikita Khrushchev, and among his first acts is to perpetuate and the great destiny of the Ukrainian people in the Moscow subway. At that time, neither of the two existing "Kiev" did not satisfy him. According to the results announced by the contest were submitted 73 projects, which won a victory in Kiev. A group of construction workers headed member of the Academy of Architecture of the Ukrainian SSR EI Katonin.

Architectural innovations used Ukrainian group of architects. The main stylistic and engineering principles work for them are growing at the top of the pylons and a parabolic arch, borrowed from the LM Polyakov - Metro architect who designed "Arbat" Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line. Subtle forms of ornamental plant girdling design reminiscent of "Novoslobodskaya." The track walls and bottom of the marble pylons mark "Koelga" floor is gray granite slabs.

The decoration station on the theme of friendship of Russian and Ukrainian peoples.

In 1972 he built additional transitions from the central hall in the eastern end of the station "Kiev" Intercession Arbatsko-line and in the anteroom of the eastern exit station "Kiev" Filevskaya line.

The door to the cable channel on the track wall.

The central part of the boarding hall, covered graceful white arch, which is connected to the lateral parts of parabolic arches, stucco bordered braid that is characteristic of Ukrainian architecture of the seventeenth century. In this description, there is a contradiction with the caption to the photo number 5 - on the same design, there are two different points of view: Wikipedia and the official website Metro.

I wonder what's changed?

18 pylons are decorated with mosaic panels of glazes, painted on the history of Ukraine and the friendship of Russian and Ukrainian peoples.

Together with two other stations and some of the objects that GO node is a complex engineering structure.

On the front wall of the central hall are a large station with stucco panels in the form of flags, and a mosaic portrait of Lenin in the center. Around - the anthem of the USSR-line.

Posted by Rahul Doshi | 4/17/2012 09:05:00 PM | 0 comments »

An eye impression is always recognized by creatively recognized pictures, at least in wise practice conditions, inaccurate or deceptive. Therefore, the information accumulated by the eye is prepared by the mind to give, on the experience of it, a percept that does not count with a actual statistic of the incitement resource. 

This is a list of few awesome amazing illusions:

1. A blivet, also known as a poiuyt, is an undecipherable determine, an eye impression and an difficult item. It seems to have three round prongs at one end which then surprisingly convert into two rectangle-shaped prongs at the other end.
2. One type of movement impression is a form of eye illusion in which a fixed graphic seems to be moving due to the mental effects of conversing shade differences and shape position. To properly view this effect, click the graphic above to see the full scaled edition.

3. Which God you discover in between these lines in below one of the amazing illusions (my best illusion)?

4. The impression below looks really terrifying when we see it at random. Some individuals see it as a go of a demon while most of the others think a lady is status, what do you see?

5. Vision scientists have come up with mind-bending new amazing illusions this season. Try to guess what exactly is happening in the below image.

There are many amazing illusions are available online if you spend some time or just Google it. But above 5 photos are my amazing illusions. Just wanted to thank for providing such a wonderful and amazing illusions.

Toothpaste even though (in some form or another) has been around as long as the Ancient Greeks have, the formula (as we know it) did not become popular until World War I. As soon as companies began manufacturing toothpaste, people began to purchase the magical concoction - guaranteed to produce glistening teeth! White teeth were all the rage after World War I had ended, and toothpaste quickly became a product that most people simply couldn't live without.

Toothpaste is one item that nearly everyone uses today, but what makes this concoction so special? Whether you brush your teeth once per day or three times per day, chances are that you've never taken the time to read that ingredient list. Some believe that the ingredients contained in a standard package of toothpaste are essential - others believe that water may be just as effective. In the end, there's a good reason why most toothpaste packages warn: "Do Not Ingest!"

10. Formaldehyde
That same ingredient that coroners can't live without can be found inside of your toothpaste tube. Formaldehyde kills all of those small bacteria that climb onto your teeth after eating or sleeping. If a large amount of formaldehyde is accidentally ingested, the result could be fatal. Severe formaldehyde ingestion results in jaundice, kidney damage, liver damage, and death.

9. Detergent
Foam, suds, activation! What would toothpaste be without that satisfying soapy feeling? Manufacturers use regular detergent in order to appease the masses that prefer bubbly toothpaste. While bubbles may be fun, be careful if you accidentally ingest a large amount of this stuff - swallowing detergent can cause digestive tract burning.

8. Seaweed
Stretchy and slimy, seaweed holds that paste together. Without this green stuff, toothpaste would simply fall apart! The good news is that seaweed isn't toxic. Infact, seaweed has a number of nutritional benefits, though hitting the sushi bar is a better way of gaining those benefits.

7. Peppermint Oil
Minty, minty, minty! Fresh breath can only be kept fresh with the help of peppermint oil! While refreshing when brushing your teeth using toothpaste, peppermint oil can cause a slow pulse, heartburn, and muscle tremors if it is consumed.

6. Paraffin
As slick as the petroleum that it is derived from, paraffin creates a smooth paste that oozes onto your toothbrush using toothpaste. As you might imagine, paraffin wasn't meant to be eaten. If you happen to swallow this ingredient, you may end up with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and severe constipation.

5. Glycerin Glycol
Never heard of this ingredient before? Sure about that? Glycerin glycol is added to toothpaste in order to prevent the paste from becoming too dry – it's also found in antifreeze. Even though glycerin is not toxic, this additive may cause nausea if swallowed.

4. Chalk
That's right - chalk. Thanks to the fact that chalk is made from exoskeletons, it's hard enough to remove all of that caked on gunk from your pearly whites. Chalk dust may cause lung problems if inhaled via toothpaste, and swallowing a bit of chalk could cause bleeding.

3. Titanium Dioxide
This is another common toothpaste ingredient, though it's usually found in white paint. When added to toothpaste, titanium dioxide has the safe effect on your teeth as it does on walls - it keeps them nice and white (for a few hours, at least!). Ingesting titanium dioxide won't hurt you, but it isn't recommended either.

2. Saccharin
Something has to combat that terrible detergent taste! Saccharin is sweet, but not too sweet - just the way that most people like their toothpaste! Saccharin has been a hot topic of debate every since Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House. The USDA tried to ban the substance in 1972, though it is considered "safe" to ingest today.

1. Menthol
One last ingredient to add a minty note to your breath. Without menthol, toothpaste might taste like, well, chalk, glycerin, paraffin, detergent, titanium dioxide, and seaweed! Go ahead and ingest menthol if you like, but sipping some tea containing menthol is a far better idea than chewing on your tube of toothpaste.
