This Discovery Channel documentary from 1997 discusses information located in Soviet vaults by historian Robert Service. It looks at the life and career of Vladimir Lenin, his relationship with his wife Krupskaya and alleged lover Inessa Armand, the assassination attempt of 1918 and Lenin's subsequent illness and death. According to Service, Lenin's fading health made him impatient for political change - and this had a direct bearing on the course of the Russian Revolution.

Vladimir Lenin’s embalmed body will be kept in “lifelike” condition and Russia’s government is shoveling out $200,000 to do it. The Russian Biomedical Technology Research and Training Centre has carried out all of Lenin’s bodily repairs since it was first put on public display in Moscow's Red Square in 1924. Lenin’s maintenance budget has not settled well with Russian citizens with some stating that Lenin would have never wanted to be treated as an “idol” and others disgusted by the amount of government funds allocated to preserving his image. Joya Mia Italiano and Nik Zecevic debate Russia’s decision to continue preserving Lenin’s body on the Lip News. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-36035076 Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5mLuH0xi_E&index=1&list=PLPnLjoW07bV2hUGhMAd26ExGg93FzJAzQ&nohtml5=False The Journalists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWnCGALkFf0&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGfqe9hDJc8fi5qy-kDXW3r0&nohtml5=False CRIME TIME clips playlist – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SME4aNTW6fI&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv&nohtml5=False BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFWpMANSMOM&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL&index=1&nohtml5=False MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H6sF00D2EI&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&nohtml5=False http://www.thelip.tv https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv

Russia's government has announced it will spend up to 13m roubles ($200,000; £140,000) this year on preserving Vladimir Lenin's embalmed body. The amount, published in a notice on the State Procurement Agency website, will be used to keep the late leader's remains in what the RBK news website calls a "lifelike condition". The notice says the work required is of a "biomedical nature", that the federal budget will foot the bill, and that a provider has already been found, although not named. A laboratory currently called the Russian Biomedical Technology Research and Training Centre has carried out all repairs to Lenin's body since it was first put on public display in Moscow's Red Square in 1924. In the post-Soviet years there have been many calls for Lenin to be buried rather than kept on public display in his glass coffin. A recent online poll of more than 8,000 Russians found that 62% were in favour of giving him a proper burial, although the idea has previously been dismissed by the Kremlin. News of Lenin's maintenance budget hasn't gone down well among social media users. On the Komsomolskaya Pravda website some deplore the cost of keeping a "mummy" on display, while others complain that Lenin himself would have opposed being treated as an "idol". One person sardonically suggests that the Communists hope to clone the Bolshevik leader if they ever return to power, and another says that if they're going to bury Lenin they should first dig up post-Soviet President Boris Yeltsin.

SEOUL: North Korea Tuesday put the body of late leader Kim Jong-Il on display in a glass coffin and heaped praise on his son and successor, amid world wariness at the transition in the nuclear-armed nation. US President Barack Obama pledged to defend regional allies such as South Korea and Japan after the reclusive communist state Monday made the shock announcement of Kim's death at the age of 69. South Korea sent condolences to the North Korean people despite frosty relations following two deadly border incidents last year. And it said it would scrap a plan to display Christmas lights near the tense border because its neighbour is in mourning. North Korea has furiously objected to the plan as "psychological warfare". In Pyongyang, state television showed a sombre dark-clad Kim Jong-Un, youngest son and successor to his father, viewing the corpse along with other high officials. An honour guard with AK-47s watched over the late Kim, dressed in his trademark khaki tunic and partially covered by a red flag, at Pyongyang's Kumsusan Memorial Palace. The body of Kim Jong-Il's father, founding president Kim Il-Sung, is also on display elsewhere in the palace. State media have reported scenes of mass grief since Kim's death from a heart attack on Saturday. The North's official news agency touted the young and inexperienced son as the "pillar of our people". "At the frontline of our revolution stands Comrade Kim Jong-Un, the great successor of the Juche (self-reliance) revolution and the outstanding leader of the party, military and people," it said. "Comrade Kim Jong-Un is the unwavering spiritual and ideological pillar of our people." The North has decreed 13 days of nationwide mourning for Kim Jong-Il. The regime kept the death a secret for two days until a tearful TV announcer disclosed it Monday and urged people to rally round his youngest son. Kim presided over a devastating famine but still found funds to build missiles and nuclear weapons during his 17 years in power. Despite the nation's hardships, state TV aired footage of near-hysterical mourners, young and old alike, pounding the ground. The news agency Tuesday carried fresh reports of grief, saying flags of mourning were flying from military bases, factories, commercial facilities and farms and endless queues of mourners were forming. Jong-Un, who is in his late 20s, was catapulted into the limelight after his father suffered a stroke in August 2008. Last year he was made a four-star general and given top ruling party posts. Analysts said there would be little turbulence -- at least for now -- since regime members at present have a vested interest in preserving the status quo. "This is a turning point for North Korea whose reins have been taken by a new generation," said Cheong Seong-Chang, of Seoul's Sejong Institute think-tank. Still, observers predict that the younger Kim will be eased into power under the tutelage of his aunt and her husband. Obama spoke by telephone to Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda following a conversation with South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak soon after the death announcement. "The president underscored the United States' commitment to the defence of our close allies, including Japan," the White House said in a statement. "He also conveyed the importance he places on maintaining the stability of the Korean peninsula and the region." North and South Korea have remained technically at war since their three-year conflict ended only in an armistice in 1953. The United States stations 28,500 troops in the South, and another 50,000 in Japan. Amid wariness about North Korea's future under the untested Jong-Un, Britain, France and Germany voiced hope for a new dawn after a tumultuous year that has seen regimes topple across the Arab world. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement her "thoughts and prayers" were with the North Korean people "during these difficult times". She urged the new leadership to "usher in a new era of peace, prosperity and lasting security" on the peninsula. In Beijing, President Hu Jintao visited the North Korean embassy to offer his condolences. China, the North's sole major ally and its economic prop, has given its crucial backing to the young new leader. "We believe that under the leadership of the Korean Workers' Party and comrade Kim Jong-Un, the DPRK (North Korean) people will unite as one and turn their sorrow into strength," said Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi. Kim Jong-Il in the mid-1990s presided over a famine that killed hundreds of thousands of his people. Severe food shortages continue and a third of children are stunted by malnutrition, according to UN estimates. Kim still found the resources for a nuclear weapons programme that culminated in tests in October 2006 and May 2009. The country is believed to have a plutonium stockpile big enough for six to eight weapons.

Actual photos of the human soul? Or part of it? I am very uncertain and baffled over this phenomena. Interview with Dr. Korotkov: https://youtu.be/kVoQfsL6Yco?list=UUAb0hxg7Y0uinh7p7trD_Ng Can someone elaborate on this? Or maybe verify or deny the nature of this science? Its a very interesting piece of work about the field that surrounds/fills the body. Anyone out there with knowledge about this is hereby invited to please give comments as the subject of whether there is an afterlife and whether God is real is intriguing.

The Museum of the USSR in Moscow is a great place to get a feeling of Soviet Union life. The collections span from toys and instruments, to motorcycles, cars and even a "snoring Lenin lying in state," scarily similar to the real Lenin in the mausoleum on Red Square. http://en.rian.ru/video/20130218/179543022/Back-in-the-USSR-with-a-Snoring-Lenin.html

Today is the 90th anniversary of the death of Vladimir Lenin - the man credited with changing the course of history for Russia, and the world. His body is on public display in central Moscow, and just like him the ideas he launched a revolution for are not exactly buried. For Russians, 70 years of the Soviet Union left most people indifferent towards Lenin's legacy. Hovewer, the socialist ideas he fought for have gained some traction in the West. Economist Richard Wolff joins RT for a detailed look at socialist ideas.
