Election results in France

Francois Hollande began to celebrate a few hours after the polls closed and the first data counting. At that point lead over rival was about 4 percent.

Bravo president of the French Socialists are not screaming for almost a quarter century. Half of France, plus 3 percent of the country's changed political orientation. The already badly emaciated during the political race the first thing Hollande promised to cut by one-third his salary.

His new chair at the Elysee Palace Hollande will take next week. First of all, a socialist promised to block a three-month rise in prices for fuel, to reduce the retirement age to 60 years for those who regularly pay pension contributions and a tax on luxuries - 75 percent on income above one million euros per year. Already by August, the president is going to create hundreds of jobs and a half, and allow same-sex marriages.

Almost half of the rest of France last night mourned the missing three percent of the vote. The first term of their candidate was the last. Back in March, in the case of his defeat Sarkozy has promised to leave politics, but in his farewell speech did not say.

Test Hollande Sarkozy left behind a lot - the size of public debt is almost an annual GDP of France, the budget deficit, and 5 percent of the all-time high unemployment rate - now out of work every tenth Frenchman. With such a legacy in the hands of staff Hollande begins a new race. In June, France will elect a parliament in which the Socialists are counting on the majority.

First psychiatric hospital

Exactly 250 years ago by Peter the Third, Russia had decided to establish a dollar-rays. Speaking in Russian mental hospital. And was told to "Insane in the monasteries did not identify, but to build on a deliberate house".

In the clinic first psychotic episode comes in acute conditions, when words alone are not quieted down. In the corridors of the department nevertheless quiet. And the House does not like solitary confinement for the violent.

The ward number six, as in all department of acute psychosis, is a quiet time. Chekhov's characters can not be found here, and in therapy since the time of writing the story, much has changed. In the House only two beds. And other therapies. Patients treated with painting and dancing.

The soul hurts, but it sings. About love. So, is recovering. Instead, droppers and pills for going to the amendment - the music, rather than a doctor - an accompanist with the conservatory education. It is not speaking in the sense of improvisation leads down. Zapevshim importantly - to prescribe the repertoire for the soul.

On the surface, and can not be said that compulsory treatment. No chains, pouring water and straitjackets. The fruits of art therapy - almost squares of Malevich - colored rectangles. Some patients bring a recognition of the work. So the outline of one of the artists hospital Mikhail Shemyakin personally selected in a separate album art studio on the door of the psychiatric leaving an autograph with the wish of creative joy. The art of one of the patients resulted in a whole new trend of modern iconography.

In Italy, for example, the last mental hospital closed 20 years ago. Italians with disabilities are treated in the relevant departments of conventional hospitals.
