Своевременность, слаженная работа и технические достижения спасли мне жизнь. Знакомьтесь, Айван Ван дер Шур – муж, отец, специалист по затяжным прыжкам с парашютом и фотограф. После жёсткого приземления на воду во время прыжка в честь празднования Дня независимости, Айвана доставили в местную больницу с пятью переломанными рёбрами и опасным для жизни разрывом аорты. Стабилизировав его состояние, врачи спешно доставили его на вертолёте воздушной скорой помощи в травматологический центр 1-го уровня UC Davis, где для оказания помощи была собрана команда лечения травм, в то время как сосудистые хирурги восстанавливали аорту посредством минимального хирургического вмешательства. Через несколько недель, с разрешения врача и его жены, Айван вновь стремится вернуться в небо.

When Life Gives You

Lemons...

It was one of those days...

When Life

Gives You Lemons

My dog wouldn’t stop barking, my phone wouldn’t stop ringing, and none of my shoes would match the pants I put on. To top it all off, it was a Monday morning. It was the shoes that got me the most, though I was stuck between the two pairs with no idea which color to go with.

laugh along. I chose the latter and let my team go wild. They laughed until they cried, made funny jokes, and finally took a picture of me and posted it on Facebook. By the end of the day I felt like a Hollywood celebrity. The post of me wearing two different shoes got hundreds of likes and dozens of comments.

My wife was curiously watching me struggle. Finally, she showed some mercy and said, “Babe, how about you put the blue shoe on one foot, and the gray one on the other and I will tell you which one looks better.” So I did. It took her five seconds to choose the color. I felt a huge relief and finally rushed to work.

I swear this day will go down in the history of our publishing house. It will be one of those stories they tell newbies in the break room. It will also always remind me of how you can make lemonade when life gives you lemons. Putting a positive spin on the curveballs of life is the theme of our Fall issue.

I got to the office just in time for our management team briefing. Ten minutes into the meeting I realized that my employees were having way too much fun for a Monday morning. Giggles, shaded smiles, something was clearly going on. Finally one of them couldn’t hold it any longer and said, “Boss, do you know you are wearing two different shoes?” That’s when I realized that I was so anxious to get out of the house that I completely forgot to remove one of the shoes to wear a matching pair.

food traditions by Helga Clair

Do you know how a job interview was held in ancient Russia? Prospective employees were invited to eat with the employer. The way the candidates ate their food partially determined whether or not they would be hired. If a person ate well and had a healthy appetite they were considered to be in good health, on good terms with the proprietor, and promised to be a productive worker.

Food has always played an imperative role in the Slavic culture. It is a part of our traditions and it stretches far beyond meeting our basic needs. It is hard to imagine any Slavic gathering without cooking. Whether it’s a birthday party, Christmas Eve, or Easter morning, food always plays a major role in each celebration. More so, joining around the dinner table is a daily ritual deeply cherished in Slavic families. Slavic food traditions have been influenced by many cultures that have intertwined for centuries. From the French overtones left from the Russian Imperial Court of 1800’s to national dishes of the 15 republics of the former Soviet Union, Slavic cuisine is a fusion of flavors, traditions, and recipes. Here is a glimpse of a classic Slavic Holiday Meal.

Shashlik

Armenian Shish Kebob – large pieces of meat marinated overnight, threaded on skewers with pieces of onions and fresh vegetables and grilled over open fire. It is often served on skewers right from the grill. Kebobs originated from the Middle East and became a traditional dish of the Caucasus region of Russia.

Uzbek Plov – a cult rice dish that comes from Uzbakistan. It’s a heart satisfying mixture of rice, lamb, carrots, chickpeas and spices stirred together in a large cast iron bowl and preferably cooked over wood fire. Plov is traditionally cooked by men, so it’s the perfect excuse for women to take a break from the kitchen.

Golubtsi

Ukrainian Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (Golubtsi) – a Ukrainian food tradition that is well welcomed in any Slavic household for any occasion. It’s made of cabbage leaves stuffed with a mouthwatering mixture of ground beef, rice, and vegetables. It is usually baked in the oven until tender and served hot with a side of sour cream.

California BEAUTY QUEEN OF SIBERIAN HERITAGE

MARIANNA

Pristupa Miss Russian California 2015

She looks the part: beautiful full lips, slender silhouette, waistlong shiny hair. She easily fits the definition of a beauty queen or a designer label model. Maybe that’s why people are always caught by surprise when they find out what she does for a living.

Story the

Marianna’s story sounds like a good plot for an engaging reality TV show.

She was born and raised in a Siberian region of Russian, a place that pretty much matches the stereotypes about Russian scenery – freezing cold winters with temperatures reaching well below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, cities surrounded by ancient forests inhabited with wolves and bears. Her family immigrated to the US and settled in Sacramento, California when Marianna was in her early teens. Despite the fact that her mother was a mathematician, the girl didn’t care much for math or science in school. Being a freespirited and artistic individual, Marianna was preoccupied with dance and art-her true passions. Although she was an artist at heart, Marianna maintained a high GPA in high school and graduated from the International Baccalaureate Programme with honors. She decided she wanted to become a pharmacist because she was comfortable with her academic abilities and wanted to get a degree that would allow her to be self-sufficient and financially stable as soon as she graduated. 20

RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

When Marianna was graduating High School, she began taking steps towards achieving her goal. She became certified as a pharmacy technician and began her part-time job at a pharmacy while going through the pre-pharmacy program at American River College. In 2008 she moved to San Francisco-the city she fell in love with upon her first visit. She continued her education and career there. Marianna completed her pre-pharmacy requirements and even applied to pharmacy schools. At that time she realized that being a pharmacist was not her calling. Luckily during her studies she felt a newly discovered passion for science, and she found that science can be very creative and, most importantly, meaningful. This is when she began looking for work in the biotech industry. During her search she discovered an open position for a Lab Technician at Sutro Biopharma, a startup biotech company. Shortly thereafter she also began attending San Francisco State University, full time, majoring in biochemistry and working 30 WWW.RUSSIANAMERICANMEDIA.COM

hours a week at Sutro. Life was not easy for those two years, but this is when the values Marianna grew up with played a major role. Marianna and her brother were raised by a single mother, Natalia Pristupa, a beautiful woman with advanced education and a firm character. Natalia raised her two children in Russia in the 90’s - a difficult decade in Russian history. She ran a successful business and was a prominent figure in her city’s fashion industry. Upon arrival to the US she evaluated her degree and became a math professor at the American River College. She also obtained an RN degree and developed a successful career in the medical industry while bringing up her two teenage children.. Inspired by her mother’s example, Marianna learned to appreciate education and self-sufficiency. Biology and chemistry intimidate most people, but in Marianna’s opinion the most complex part of science are names that scientists use to describe their processes. If science is broken down into

small manageable parts, it is very accessible and fascinating. Her favorite subjects were biochemistry and immunology because the two explained the intricacies and the perfect design of a human organism. Marianna was hired by Sutro as a Research Associate as soon as she received her degree. She spent a total of 5 years working at this company and gained a lot of experience in process development for large molecules, also known as Biologics. Since then Marianna has moved on from the lab and has begun working in the tech industry for a UK company called IDBS. Now, as a business consultant there she works with top biotech companies such as Pfizer, Bayer, Novartis and others to help them optimize their processes and ensure successful integration of IDBS software. She is happy and grateful to use her academic, professional and life experience in her current position which she feels makes client’s professional lives easier and more enjoyable.


When Marianna first heard about Miss Russian California, it caught her attention because the pageant provided an opportunity to get out in the community, raise awareness for certain issues, and pay tribute to her Slavic heritage. She entered the contest and a few weeks later was crowned as the most beautiful woman of 2015 among other Slavic Californians. RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

CARS here and now

Electric cars seem to be the latest trend in the auto industry these days.

If a few years ago cars like Prius were considered a flick of meticulous environmentalists, today most leading auto makers strive to release their own electric models.

The variety of features this technology offers is especially fascinating. Chevy’s new fuel efficient Spark can go up to 119 mpg, Audi’s wicked Audi A3 e-Tron reaches 0 to 60 mph in a 4.9 seconds while Porsche’s luxurious Cayenne S E-Hybrid goes up to 151 mph. Here are top four electric vehicles that have earned consumer confidence. RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

NISSAN

TESLA

Tesla is the automotive phenomenon of the 21st century.

LEAF

It is a luxury car that is priced well over $100K when fully loaded. Despite being pretty high in the price range, the automaker managed to claim a good share of the US market, catching up in sales with the long-time market leaders such as Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series, and Audi A8. In Norway, which is the European leader in oil-production, Tesla has become a best-selling car, and not just among electric vehicles, but overall! This popularity is justified not only by the use of the highest quality materials and the car’s attractiveness from the aesthetic standpoint, but also by the fact that the Tesla Model S has been acclaimed as the safest automobile on the road today.

E

lectric cars are considered to be a big breakthrough of the modern days auto industry. But did you know that this technology was developed over 150 years ago? The first electrically powered automobile appeared as early as the 1840’s. In 1899, an electric car successfully passed the 60 mph speed barrier.

However, the first electric vehicles had some serious shortcomings that caused the evolving technology to vanish from the market until recently. For instance, the batteries weighed a lot, charging required a long time, and bad fuel efficiency only allowed for a very short driving range on one charge. All that aside, it was the appearance and proliferation of the internal

Nissan Leaf is officially the best-selling electric car in the world.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has reported almost 200,000 units of this zero-emissions car sold in 2014. According to the company’s official statistics, this translates into saving nearly 28 million gallons of oil and sparing the atmosphere of over 501 million pounds of carbon dioxide. Leaf is also the most affordable model out of the four we feature. Its base model is priced under $30K which makes it an ideal combination of price, quality, and efficiency. Although it only offers around 80 miles on a full charge, the Leaf’s 114 MPGe makes up for the relatively short driving range.

combustion engine that dealt the final blow and lead to a complete cessation of electric car manufacturing by 1940. Electric car technology research has been resurrected by two adverse reasons – heavy air pollution and skyrocketing gas prices. At the end of the 20th century the number of metropolitan residents who were suffering

from asthma, allergies, and headaches grew sevenfold as a result of severe air pollution. Growing public concern in combination with climbing oil prices finally made automakers look for alternative energy sources. It took manufacturers almost half a century to begin testing and implementing electric motors in their product lines. By the


BMW i3

BMW i3 is

the first mass produced car with a body made of carbon-fiberreinforcedpolymer.

IMMORTUS

Now, something that was once only in the realm of exotic supercars is within the price range of the average buyer. The result of the implementation of this material is impressive – the weight of the i3 is only around 2,600 pounds.

It’s a new electric sports car (!) which will be presented at the 2015 SEMA exhibition in Las Vegas. It’s called The Immortus and it was developed by a Melbourne-based startup named EVX in collaboration with engineers from Swinburne University of Technology. The developers claim that in terms of endurance this car is basically infinite: “As long as the sun shines, The Immortus lives,” is their slogan.

This electric marvel is my personal favorite.

While it has rather compact exterior dimensions, the i3 is amazingly spacious inside. Spirited acceleration, excellent handling, a comfort level worthy of its esteemed manufacturer, and a mind blowing multimedia system – the i3 has it all. Add to that two very exotic qualities: library-grade silence in the interior and the ability to be driven using only one pedal.

beginning of the 2000's the first models powered by hybrid powertrains hit the showrooms and soon claimed their share of the market. This innovational leap of faith earned the consumers trust, but that still could not be considered a complete victory for the electric motor. The company that truly revolutionized and made a

huge splash in the world of electric automobiles is Tesla. Under the leadership of its charismatic CEO Elon Musk, Tesla built an electric car for mass production. What's more interesting, Tesla made a public announcement that the company won't patent its ideas thus giving a green light to manufacturers worldwide to take a confident step into the future.

The car features frontal aerodynamics, a 10kWh battery, photovoltaic panels measuring 7 ft.² built into the roof, and the high efficiency of those solar panels (22%). This electric car can go 340 miles without charging at an average speed of 50 mph and top speed of over 90. Reaching 60 mph takes less than seven seconds. Under certain conditions The Immortus’ range without charging can be unlimited!

La Jamais Contente, which translates as “The Never Satisfied” It was the first vehicle that broke the speed barrier of 100 km/h. It was driven by a Belgian driver named Camille Jenatzy who managed to hit 105,882 km/h (65.792 mph). The record was set in 1899 and the car that first broke the speed barrier was an electric vehicle.

The holiday season is just around the corner which means it’s almost time for all the parties, dinners, and of course the NYE celebration! Every woman wants to look remarkable during this time of the year, but clothes and make-up can only do so much. WWW.RUSSIANAMERICANMEDIA.COM

Thankfully, the MODERN BEAUTY industry offers a lot of ways to become flawless in practically no time. From extensions done in a beauty salon to minimally invasive procedures offered by a medical office, there are lots of TRICKS to make you look radiant FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

LASH EXTENSIONS

LIP ENHANCEMENT

BOTOX & FILLERS

HAIR EXTENSIONS

LASER SKIN RESURFACING

If you are like 99.9% of women, you probably wish your eye lashes were a little bit fuller or a little bit longer.

Not all of us were born with voluptuous lips like Angelina Jolie. Lucky for us, we can copy her look with lip fillers!

Botox has come a long way since its bad reputation of a “frozen face” and is now extremely popular.

I change my hair color almost as often as I change my clothes. Hair extensions are my remedy.

Laser resurfacing is great for anyone who wants to get rid of acne scars, sun spots, fine lines, or wrinkles.

Most of us don’t have time -- or the skill -- to apply false lashes every day. Well the next best thing is here -- lash extensions! This new trend is almost as essential as red lipstick. This procedure takes about two hours with almost no down time. Lash artists recommend to stay away from water for the first 24 hours. Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of your natural lashes, typically 4-6 weeks. The fake lash will shed with the natural lash, but a fill is recommended every 2-3 weeks. You are still able to wear all your makeup, but mascara is not recommended as it could cause the lashes to become clumpy and fall off prematurely. Trust me, once you have your full set of fabulous long lashes, mascara will be the last thing on your mind!

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, biodegradable substance found in the body that is injected into your lips for a fuller look. The most commonly used fillers are Restylane and Juvaderm which last about 6 months. This quick procedure only takes about 30 minutes with recovery time of typically one day. However, bruising and swelling can occur for up to one week. So, throw away all those lip plumping lip glosses that hardly deliver, find yourself a board certified surgeon and get to those injections!

Botox is made up of highly purified toxins that can temporarily erase or reduce horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and crow’s-feet. The injections slow muscles that contract hundreds of times a day and eventually cause wrinkles. Botox will not affect the nerves that cause sensation, or make you feel numb. When used correctly, it can lift the brow to give an appealing and sincere look. Results begin to show in a couple of days and develop gradually over the course of two weeks. Botox injections usually last 3-4 months.

Even worse, I am constantly deciding if I should keep my hair long or chop it off. If you’re anything like me, hair extensions are perfect for you. If you know 100% that you want to go for the long hair look, there are many different types of extensions you can get. Some include braiding them in, gluing them in, or using special sealing clips. Typically you have to get your extensions touched up every 6 weeks or so. If you love your short hair look on a daily basis but want long hair for a special occasion then clip in extensions are a perfect fit for you. You just part your hair and clip in the extensions wherever you desire. At the end of the day, simply take them out!

This technology evens out problem skin and stimulates collagen production which in turn improves skin elasticity, appearance, and health. In other words, it’s like a shot straight from the fountain of youth which removes imperfections and gives your face a glow. The procedure is minimally invasive and may only require a topical anesthesia cream. It is performed by a laser which is passed over the surface of the skin, removing thin layers of dead and problem skin cells. The treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The recovery time is approximately 4-5 days.

Russian Women


A little mystery never hurts, but for those of you that are curious to know, here are five things that are certainly true about Russian women.

1 2

When people find out I’m Russian they ask me pretty amazing questions:

DOES IT EVER STOP SNOWING IN RUSSIA? DO RUSSIAN BEARS INDEED RIDE UNICYCLES? DO RUSSIANS DRINK ANYTHING BUT VODKA?

3 4

ARE ALL RUSSIAN WOMEN SUPER MODELS? There are tons of stereotypes about Russian women, some think we are all beautiful, others imagine us more like villain spies from the Bond movies. I like to leave my acquaintances in the dark about the bears, snow, and booze, but the last question always makes me laugh.

5

WE LIKE TO DRESS UP.

A LOT!

If you’ve ever seen a well dressed woman wearing high heels while walking down the street, shopping at the mall, or picking-up groceries, the chances are she was probably Russian. Every Russian woman has at least one pair of bad heels in her closet. We like to look good, whether for church service on Sunday, for work on Monday, or the grocery store on a Tuesday. No matter how old we get, we always take care of ourselves and try to look stylish, diligent, and sometimes a little overdressed.

WE WON’T LET YOU GO HUNGRY.

EVER!

Food is a big part of our culture. We cook at home and love to share meals with friends and family. If you come over to our house we won’t let you go until we feed you. It’s just the way we are, so you better come hungry.

WE APPRECIATE REAL GENTLEMEN.

PERIOD.

Russian women are pretty self-sufficient. We can provide for ourselves, move furniture around the house, or repaint the walls in our bedroom. But when it comes to relationship we appreciate men that make us feel like real women. It can be little things such as opening doors for us, helping us carry heavy bags, or picking up the tabs in restaurants. No matter how independent we are, it always feels good to have a real man next to us.

WE WILL BE COURTEOUS TO YOUR FAMILY.

ALWAYS.

Family values are big in Russia. We were raised with the deepest respect for our parents and a big regard for our relatives. We were taught to be there for each other for life, celebrating the good times and supporting each other through hardships. We will show the same respect and loyalty to you and your loved ones if you become a part of our family.

WE WILL MAKE YOU TRY NEW THINGS.

SOMETIMES.

Have you ever been spanked with a broom in a steam room (Russian Banya) or treated with crepes filled with caviar? If not, you have another reason to get a Russian woman in your life. We’ll take your existence to the next level, either by making you try new foods, introducing you to amazing experiences, or taking you on a travel trip to foreign places.

FIRE

by Olviya Krasnodemsky

The Wall Street Journal has put Sacramento among six of the nation’s “great small cities for food lovers.”

Sacramento has no shortage of restaurants but there are a select few that make our hearts go pitter patter and our bellies grumble just a little louder. These restaurants are famous for their ambience, service, location, and good Yelp reviews, but what really keeps guests coming back is their food. There is no better

way to learn about the food a restaurant offers than firsthand from the chef who makes it. We asked four executives chefs of some of the best restaurants in the capitol region to share their backgrounds, tricks, and kitchen disaster stories. Read on to learn what tool The Kitchen’s Chef Kelly McCown believes is

most essential in the kitchen. Discover what inspires Chef Ray Silva from the Roseville’s newest posh restaurant, Cibo7. Find out where charismatic Chef Q. Bennett of ASR hosts “Fat Sundays” and how Chef Patrick Mulavey’s with Mulvaney’s B&L loves to prepare his favorite cooking ingredients.

KELLY McCOWN EXECUTIVE CHEF

The Kitchen is no ordinary restaurant. Guests describe dining there as an interactive “once in a lifetime experience.”

The Kitchen

www.thekitchenrestaurant.com

Chef McCown and his team prepare the food right in front of patrons, explaining the process and concept of every course. Dinner service includes a five-course prix fixe menu, an interactive ‘Intermission’ menu, water, coffee and tea. The menu changes every month and features seasonal ingredients bringing the freshest flavors of the season on to the plate. Randall Selland, the owner of The Kitchen, is known as “Sacramento’s Father of Farm-to-Fork.” Selland is passionate about fresh ingredients which he gets from the local farmers. The service at The Kitchen is impeccable. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure a dining experience like no other.

A KITCHEN DISASTER STORY: “I was working for a well-known Bay Area wine country restaurant. It was the New Year’s Eve, and we had a very complicated menu. We made 125 gallons of consommé (a type of soup). We’re talking thousands of dollars, and a week’s worth of work. We decided to heat up all 125 gallons at once. We heated up a steam jacket and dropped the gelatinous stock in. When a 40 pound jello shot hit the hot steam jacket bottom it was shot back into the air and exploded into a million pieces. Priceless!”

Chef Kelly McCown’s expertise perfectly fits the exclusive concept of Kitchen.

36

After completing his culinary training at the California Culinary Academy, McCown had the opportunity of working at some of the best restaurants in San Fransisco. Michelin stared La Folie, and Fleur de Lys, are among those. Later, McCown together with Michelin rated Chef Scott Carsberg opened the award winning restaurant Lampreia in Seatle, Washington. McCown’s cuisine was described as “richly flavored meals that offer both comfort and complexity”, by The Seattle Times. McCown then moved on to open up Martini House, in St. Helena. A few jobs and years later, McCown joined the Selland Family Restaurants to become the Executive Chef at Ella. McCown went on to opening up Goose & Gander, a highly acclaimed gastro pub restaurant in Napa Valley. Most recently, Chef McCown decided to come back to Sacramento as The Kitchen’s Executive. McCown says that he promised his family to stay here at least for the next 10 years, and Sacramento is hoping that he sticks to his promise. Chef Kelly McCown’s rich background and experiences, and outgoing character make him the perfect chef for Sacramento’s The Kitchen restaurant. RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

Chef Quentin “Q” Bennett comes from humble beginnings. Q, the youngest of ten boys, was often shadowing his single mother as she cooked for her big family.

PHOTOS BY: OLHA MELOKHINA WWW.OLHAPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

The basic skills Q learned from his mother were strengthened when he spent some time as a dishwasher, and then a cook in a military kitchens. Chef Q doesn’t claim to be a self-taught chef, but instead credits his mother, the military, and other amazing chefs for his culinary training. Chef Q has cooked all over the world for a wide variety of A-list stars, Universal and Paramount Studios sets, and even President Clinton! Enthusiasm and a positive attitude about his job are the two most striking features of the Chef. He chooses to look at the glass as being half full, and encourages his staff to do the same. Chef Q currently works as the Executive Chef at Roseville’s ASR Restaurant &Lounge. ASR serves a wide array of classic American dishes with a twist. For example, their chicken and waffles dish consists of a fried Cornish game hen, Belgian waffles, and brown butter maple sauce. ASR has quite the happy hour menu, with items like Artichoke Beignets starting at $3. If you’re looking for a place to host a special event, come to ASR to enjoy their private dining room, or VIP lounge. The modern and sleek venue radiates a sophisticated ambiance, and the food is a wonderful testament of the talented chef.

WHAT DO YOU DO DURING A DAY OFF? “I grew up in a single mom household, so I feel that it’s my duty to give back to the less fortunate. I teach culinary, and etiquette class to the inner city youth at Space of Grace Youth Academy in Sacramento. We cook together, and eat food that the teens probably wouldn’t ever eat otherwise. Besides that, I love spending time with my family. On Sundays, we have about 25 friends and family come over for what we call “Fat Sundays”. I choose the food I cook for them, and there is no counting calories, we just enjoy some good food.” RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

Fresh ingredients is the secret behind the Europeinspired cuisine at Cibo 7, the new posh restaurant in Roseville. Driven by a young culinary genius, Chef Ray Silva, Cibo7’s constantly evolving menu always feature the best seasonal ingredients from around the world.

EXECUTIVE CHEF

www.cibo7.com

A REAL CHEF SHOULD… “Learn the basics. Before you jump into the molecular gastronomy, or even go to culinary school, you have to take the time to get to know cooking ingredients. Everybody wants to try to reinvent the wheel, but cooking without appreciation to the unique characters of each ingredient leads to the food without a soul.”

Chef Silva has worked at RM Upstairs, Michelin 2 Star, and AAA 5 Diamond Award winning Guy Savoy in Las Vegas. In 2012, Chef Silva moved to work at Zagat rated Mina restaurant in San Francisco. Chef Silva’s food is approachable, yet refined. Silva combines flavors and colors to create dishes that look just as good as they taste. Rustically European styled Cibo7 is warm and welcoming. The restaurant’s menu features Italian, Spanish, and French inspired dishes. Tender Wagyu meatballs, diver scallops, sourced from Maine’s coast, Cast Iron Pasta with hand pulled mozzarella, and vibrant salads made with fresh vegetables from Produce Alive Farm in Loomis are only a few of the many delicious foods Cibo7 has to offer. Chef Ray is excited to continue growing in his knowledge of cooking good food, and sharing that knowledge with the people of Roseville.


A degree in English literature and chemistry don’t add up to a position of an executive chef and a restaurateur, but Chef Patrick Mulvaney is a man of many talents. Chef Mulvaney began his culinary career at the River Café in Arizona.

PATRICK MULVANEY OWNER & EXECUTIVE CHEF

Mulvaney’s B&L

He later moved to California and worked at some of the brightest local restaurants, such as Beriner Vineyards, Paragary’s, The Kitchen, and Piatti Roseville. With such a great culinary background, it was no surprise when Mulvaney opened his incredible midtown restaurant, Mulvaney’s B&L. You will never get tired of Mulvaney’s menu as it changes daily, based on the season’s offerings. Mulvaney’s is famous for serving the freshest American cuisine. Chef Mulvaney’s philosophy is, “Whatever the farmer brings in the front door goes on the table. Our down-to-earth, yet whimsical style is what makes us smile. Please come, sit, and eat”. The name Mulvaney’s came from “It’s a Wonderful Life”, where Jimmy Stewart left home to build his future, only to come back after realizing that his future was investing in his own community. Mulvaney’s shows their support of the community through their yearly donations to various local organizations that provide immediate support to families in transition (homeless) and disenfranchised citizens as well as educational programs.

CONCLUSION:

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INGREDIENT TO WORK WITH? “Pork is our favorite ingredient and we probably use four to six whole hogs per month. We make our own bacon, ham, and sausages. We love roasting the whole pig over an oak fire too.”

Food is a necessity, but if it’s made from fresh ingredients by a culinary master it becomes pleasure. Each chef has his own cooking style which evolves over time. Exploring the work of these culinary masters is the same as enjoying some fine art. We hope you take time to do that. Bon appetite!

Lose withou Weight t tr y by Olga Garicichina

Is this possible to lose weight without dieting and exercising? Choose one of the following to answer: a b c d

No, it’s hopeless Maybe, when pigs have wings Yes, if you go under the knife Yes, if you buy a ticket to Six Flags amusement park

Most people in my target research group chose option A. If you agree with them, I will have to disappoint you. The correct answer is D. Surprised? Then keep reading to discover more mind blowing facts about health, clean diet, and weight loss. PHOTO: IGOR ILYENKO, WWW.COOLSTYLE.US MODEL: MASHA KUTILOVA-LIAPUNIN


FALL IN LOVE

EAT MORE The common notion of most diets is eat less to lose more. This concept is not exactly correct. When you deprive your body of food, your metabolism slows down. This causes your body to put the weigh you lost back on when you go back to your normal eating habits. If you want to shed pounds and stay that way, you have to eat the right kind of foods. Products rich in dietary fiber are especially helpful when it comes to weight loss. Fiber is a special type of carbohydrate found in plant food, such as whole grains, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Fiber makes you feel full faster and helps food move quicker through your digestive system.

Love can make us literally glow from the inside out. It affects everything, from the way we feel to the way we look. There is a scientific reason for that. When we fall in love our hormones bounce off the chart. Our body naturally tries to shape up in order to attract the attention of the other person. Love is a great way to get in the best shape of our life. However, love is also a danger zone. If our feelings are not mutual and we go through a heart break, our body secrets abnormal doses of cortisol, the stress hormone. Prolong exposure to high levels of cortisol may cause rapid weight gain especially around your waist. As such, love can make you bloom and look your best, but only if it’s mutual.

MELT IT AWAY Steam bath rituals have been popular in many cultures, and for good reason. One sauna treatment can be equivalent to a mild exercise routine where you lose calories with no effort whatsoever! Despite the popular belief, steam room treatments do not melt the body fat. They help you lose weight and drastically improve your skin elasticity by detoxifying your body and increasing blood circulation. Hot temperatures open up your pores and make your body flush out the toxins.

SHAPE UP without

Diet & Exercise

FIND A RUSH Adrenaline is associated with something dangerously exciting, like sky diving, bungee jumping, or realizing that the blue lights in your rear view mirror are simply asking you to yield the road, not pull over for a ticket. You can hardly associate adrenaline with weight loss. However, few people know that this hormone can directly affect the way your body burns fats and digests carbohydrates. Adrenaline is secreted when you experience strong emotions, such as stress, excitement, or fear. This hormone prepares your body for a strong response to a stressful situation by stimulating energy production. It increases blood circulation, raises blood levels of glucose, and elevates your heart rate. In other words, you can burn some fat and calories by simply watching a scary movie, taking a roller coaster ride, or unwrapping an exciting present. That simple!


SPICE IT UP

SLEEP TIGHT We burn more calories when we are awake, while our metabolism slows down when we go to sleep. Recommending sleep as a weight loss strategy might sound absurd, and yet, good sleep is the key to maintaining a healthy weight. Men need an average of 6.5 hours of sleep a day while women need about 8. When we do not get enough sleep our body starts producing excessive amount of ghrelin, the hunger hormone responsible for producing appetite. When its level increase over normal, it makes people consume more food than they normally would. Research shows, that sleep deprivation is directly correlated to higher blood concentration of ghrelin which in turn is linked to obesity. With this in mind, an extra hour of sleep could save you a few hours at the gym.

Have you been trying to lose weight but still have the same number staring back at you when you step on the scale? Then you might want to try a simple yet effective weight control trick that has been around since the beginning of ages – jazz up your food with herbs and spices. Spices are rich in natural ingredients that have an incredible effect on your appetite, metabolism and digestion system. Here are three powerful natural weight control fixings: Cinnamon. Cinnamon contains an ingredient called polyphenol which has been proven to stabilize blood sugar, control appetite, and reduce accumulation of fat around your belly. Add a quarter spoon of cinnamon to your oatmeal or smoothie to control hunger and avoid cravings. Cayenne pepper. Cayenne is a great addition to any meal if you want to kick it up a notch. It is also a great tool to reduce your fat storage and burn more calories. Cayenne contains capsaicin, a powerful compound that significantly improves your body’s ability to transform food into energy. Ginger. Ginger has a unique ability to make your digestion process work faster and smother. It reduces stomach bloating, accelerates gastric emptying, and helps burn fats around your midriff.

5 THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM KIDS TO BE HAPPY

UPSIDE DOWN by Olga Garicichina

Remember when you were a kid and you were dreaming of becoming a grown-up?

PHOTO: IGOR ILYENKO, WWW.COOLSTYLE.US MODEL, TOP RIGHT: ALISSA DZHANGETOVA MODEL, BOTTOM LEFT: ARIANNA ADORNO-WILLIAMS

We’ve all been there, trying on our parents shoes and adding a little extra when asked about our age, because being ten and a half was just so much cooler than being just ten. Eventually we all grow up and begin to play by the world’s rules. We work hard all week so we can kick back and relax on the weekend. We put ourselves through school and long hours at the office so we could afford a cool car, a RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

dream house, or Black Friday shopping sprees. As time goes we get busier with life and there is something that we miss along the way. I’m not talking about the thinning hair or that crazy metabolism that used to let you swallow a pig before their bedtime and still wake up starving. I am talking about the ability to explore the world and create new opportunities; the gift of learning new things and making new friendships.

WWW.RUSSIANAMERICANMEDIA.COM

HERE ARE 5 THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM KIDS TO STAY FOREVER YOUNG IN OUR HEARTS.

CURIOSITY

SOCIABILITY

JOYFULNESS

Did you know that people learn more new things during the first three years than the rest of their lifetime? Children are capable of digesting an unlimited amount of new information and curiosity is the key. There is nothing that doesn’t get them interested. Try to imagine what you could be like if you would continue exploring the world like that. There is nothing that limits you from widening your horizons except your own weariness. Push yourself to try new things so you can evolve in whatever it is you like doing. Subscribe to a new group on Facebook, check out that Ethiopian or Brazilian restaurant you keep hearing about, get out of the house and explore new places on the weekend, or dare yourself to hit the karaoke bar on a Friday night.

When I was a child all I needed to do to find a new BFF was to be left unsupervised for a few minutes. I could make friends literally anywhere, on a playground, in line at a grocery store, on a bus stop, you name it. All I had to do was say Hi and ask for my companion’s name, and the friendship was sealed. We have an incredible ability to connect with other people when we are young. We don’t judge people by their skin color, occupation, or zip code. Unfortunately, we become less openminded as we grow older. We often find our comfort zone and become extremely selective in letting others in. Maybe we should forget about social stereotypes, let go of the fears of past mistakes, and open ourselves to new connections. Research shows that people who communicate more do better at work and have a more fulfilling personal life.

We’ve all seen children crying their eyes out because they hurt themselves and then suddenly laughing about something the next minute. Children don’t hold on to negative emotions. They let go easily and continue on enjoying their life. What about us grownups? We can easily remember how someone yelled at us at work a year ago, how we were mistreated by a spouse, or betrayed by a friend. We collect skeletons in our closet, become bitter inside, and eventually stress ourselves out into a whole bunch of relationship and health problems. What if we could let go of the past like children do? Maybe then we could laugh more and learn to live in the moment.

RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

Guess what this is that a child does up to 400 times a day while an average adult only 15?

IMAGINATION

ENTHUSIASM

It’s adorable to see a boy building a sand castle or a girl running around in a princess dress. When I was younger my imagination ran wild. Tree leaves were my currency while water and dirt were my secret ingredients to culinary masterpieces. Everything I touched could be transformed into something new. Unfortunately imagination is often considered obsolete in the grown-up world. We become more practical and skeptical as we grow older. Why should we? Research shows that most people that make it onto the Forbes List allow themselves to use their imagination and creativity on a daily basis. Moreover, world’s giants, like Pixar Animation and Apple, rank creativity among the top five mandatory characteristics of their company culture. If creativity drives large corporations and puts small start-ups on the Forbes List, why can’t it enrich your life? Whether you dare to try a small DIY project or a major garage remodel, let your imagination flow and see what happens.

There are few questions that confuse adults more than question about their age. Now, try asking children how old they are. They won’t hold back the answer even for a second! When we are young it feels like we are going to live forever. As time goes by, it becomes our limitation. We often hear something like “I’m too old for this” used as an excuse for something. The truth is, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away. Remember that thing you’ve always wanted to try but never got to do? Well, try it! Sign up for dance class or learn to scuba dive, try sky diving or buy a guitar. Stop making excuses! Start living your life!

SMILE! Children smile almost 27 times more than us, grown-ups, do.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST Don’t be afraid to show your emotions like children do. When you see someone you’ve missed –give then a full-blown hug, when you are happy about something – share ayour smile with a stranger, when you are feeling sad – pour your heart out to a friend. Take it easy and life will become brighter for you and those around you!

CORPORATE CAREER

vs

PRIVATE BUSINESS by Roman Smolevskiy

Here are some basic facts and myths about corporate careers versus the private sector. We hope this helps you find your calling.

The opening scene of the iconic Matrix trilogy features Neo, the main hero, being forced to choose between the two pills – a white one or a red one. The kind of pill he takes determines the rest of life. In a way, our career choice is similar to this pill. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, an average adult

between the age of 18 and 67 spends about 16% of their waking hours at leisure, 7.5% with friends and family, and over 55% of time for work-related activities. What we do for a living affects everything, from the way we spend our time, the people we surround ourselves with, and the kind of life style we can afford. There

are two major occupation fields you get to choose from when it comes to your career – should you climb a corporate ladder or should you build your own business. The choice you make is life changing as it is almost impossible to alternate once it is set. We decided to explore the pros and cons of these two areas.


CORPORATE CAREER Corporate jobs come with a corner office on the upper floor of a glass skyscraper overlooking the downtown skyline. You get to work with a team of sharply dressed people who bring donuts and coffee to work and share jokes by the water cooler. Corporations gives you a sense of belonging and an opportunity to become an imperative part of a bigger vision. It involves business trips to exciting places with nothing less than first-class airfare and four-star hotel accommodations. Being smart, bright, and qualified is not enough to get you in a corner office with a view. You have to work your way to the top, competing with hundreds of other bright and qualified co-workers eager to pass you by as they race up the corporate ladder. For example, graduates of economics universities who join large financial institutions have to work 100 hours per week for the first four years. As such, you put yourself through school and take on student debt just to end up spending the first few years of your career in the office making sure you don’t get knocked off track by more determined office clerks.

CORNER OFFICE

VERTICAL CLIMB

Corporate careers require a good education and great time commitment. As such, after five to seven years in college, young professional graduates with thousands of dollars in student loans and find themselves working morning to night locked in a cubicle. Entry level positions also don’t guarantee high job satisfaction as they make people feel like small fractions of a huge machine designed to produce money for the shareholders. Stability is the biggest factor that plays in favor of working for a big corporation. You can rest assure that your paycheck will arrive on time, your sick leave will be paid, and your health insurance will be covered. The perspective for career growth is also a plus. Most corporation provide great opportunities for advancement and professional development. You also get exposed to a diverse workspace where you can learn from other professionals in your field. Corporation allows you to gain knowledge and experience which elevate your expertise and boost your resume.

Corporate career is great for those who seek stability and are good at following directions. It comes with a precise job description, a guaranteed paycheck, and a 50

PRIVATE BUSINESS THAT WAS EASY!

MYTH

SBA data shows that approximately 543,000 new businesses open each month in the US. According to Bloomberg, about 80% of entrepreneurs who start their small business fail within the first 18 months. Entrepreneurship offers freedom and flexibility which puts business owners in control of their time and schedule. However, the latest poll conducted by the New York Enterprise reports that the majority of business owners work at least 50 hours a week with twenty five percent of them putting in more than 60 hours a week. Small business requires constant attention which puts entrepreneurs at risk of being plugged into work 24/7.

HIGH RISK

CONS

Thanks to movies and mass media the vast majority of people believe that running a private business is all about being chauffeured around in an expensive car, drinking a martini at lunch, and signing agreements with important client dressed in expensive suits. Being your own boss equates to doing whatever you want whenever you want it. Having your own business is stress free since there is no one to hold you accountable.

Having your own business means being a one man orchestra. You have to be sophisticated enough to be able to calculate the ROI for your company and skillful enough to fix a broken coffee machine in your reception room. You have to be a marketing expert to stay ahead of your competitors, a good motivator to encourage your employees to try their best, and a fearless visionary to keep up with the changing market. Private business does not come with a job description. You are the one deciding on how to run things and you are the one responsible if your employees fail to deliver. There is no one to blame if your business goes bankrupt or your paycheck slurps Freedom, flexibility, and the opportunity to do what you love while making money off of it – these are the biggest advantages of owning your own business. You are your own boss and get to decide for yourself on when to get up and when to go to sleep, how many work hours of work to put in and when to go on vacation. It’s up to you how much money you get to take home and how much you want to set aside for retirement. Small business allows you to unleash your potential which is not limited by seniority or the number of steps in the corporate ladder.

holic if you are unable to know when to unplug. It requires the ability to adjust to the ever changing market and leaves no one to blame if your profit margin goes down. RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

Elmira Abraamyan graduated from dental school in the postSoviet Republic in the midst of 1990’s. Today, almost 20 years later, she heads one of the leading dental practices in the Sacramento region. This year she is the recipients of the Woman of the Year Award in the RussianSpeaking Community. Here is the story of this fascinating person that managed to become successful in a pretty engaging and saturated field while being a mother, a wife, and an immigrant.


How did you get You could say I had no other choice. What else started with your could a child of two doctors do but follow in dental career? their footsteps and go to medical school? My

mother was an endocrinologist and my father was a neurologist. I was extremely curious about what they did for a living when I was a child. As I was growing up I found myself spending more and more time in their offices. At some point I realized that I was fascinated by their skills and my career goal was set.

I guess a passion Exactly. You could say I learned it at my towards medicine mother’s knees. I went to medical school right was in your DNA? after I graduated from high school. My college

Was it hard I guess we faced the same challenges to start from as all immigrants do. We had to start ground zero? from scratch, finding our way around a

new country, trying to make a living and providing for our son, who was seven at the time. But no matter how hard it was, I refused to give up on my calling. I went to school again and got accredited as a dentist at UCLA.

What My husband and I opened a new practice happened right after I got my certification. We next? started small, a modest dental office in

years were tough, hours spent in libraries, lots of all-nighters pulled before excruciating exams, a million of Latin terms we had to know like the palm of our hand. But as hard as medical school was, I found it exciting at the So it was a family same time.

What about the fun of college years? Did you find any time for a personal life?

I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to squeeze in the good times between my exams and labs. I made some amazing friends in college. It was around that time when I met an interesting young man on my trip to Moscow who was also a doctor. We fell in love and got married shortly thereafter. Soon we will be celebrating our 35 year wedding anniversary.

35 years together! How did you manage to do this?

I wouldn’t have it any other way. We’ve always been there for each other no matter what. We tried to do everything together, sharing our load, helping each other, inspiring each other, supporting each other. I know I can lean on him when life takes a toll on me and I need a break. I am blessed to have a man like him next to me.

So, how did two young doctors from Uzbekistan end up in sunny California?

It’s no secret that everyone was looking for a way out of the falling Soviet Union in the late 1980’s. We weren’t an exception. We left Uzbekistan and headed toward the US. We took the long way, immigrating through Europe and eventually wound up in Los Angeles.

LA. We did a good job and our customers were happy. I was a treating patients while my husband was overseeing the business aspect of our practice. We pretty much stick to the same roles to this day. Yes. We now have two sons and both

practice. Did are in business with us. One is helping your son grow oversee the admin part of our offices up to join it? while the second one is in college

planning to become a dentist. He spends a lot of his free time in clinics, shadowing me and watching me work. I can’t wait for him to get his degree and join our practice!

Your practice expanded as well. Is this correct?

Yes. We now have three dental offices through the greater Sacramento Region: the Sunrise Family Dentistry in Roseville, the Universal Dental Care in North Highlands, and our newest addition – the Madison Sunrise Dental Care.

You are a hard worker, but what is that you like doing in your free time?

I am passionate about two things, reading and traveling. My perfect getaway combines both. I’ve been to pretty amazing places and read even more amazing books and know there is so much more to cover! I have a long list of places I want to go see and a lot more books I want to read. For me, that’s exciting. PHOTO BY: OLHA MELOKHINA WWW.OLHAPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

Elmira’s story is an inspiration to all those who dream of achieving education, career, or personal goals. She once again proves that you can have it all if you don’t stop believing, trying, and building your dreams.

SERGE MYSIN, CPA

Compliance with tax regulations is mandatory for every business. Taxes and financial records are the two areas that should be in order in every firm. However, most people find it hard to navigate the ever changing rules of taxation & accounting.

A knowledgeable CPA is a necessity for every business and entrepreneur. Even a minor error in financial records and/or unawareness of the tax law could potentially cost businesses thousands of dollars in additional taxes and possible fines. Serge Mysin is an accounting professional with extensive expertise in tax and accounting fields. Mysin graduated from the University of California, Sacramento with an accounting degree and completed his CPA credential while working for KPMG, one of the four largest international accounting firms. He then moved to a private enterprise as Chief Financial Officer and got accustomed to private sector accounting. Several years later Mysin applied his education and experience and opened his own professional accounting firm, SM Financial Services. The firm has been expanding by providing consulting, tax and accounting services to Corporations, LLC’s, private businesses, and individuals.

Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon AllDent Multi Specialty Dental Practice

Dr. Sergey Lokot came to the US as a child with his parents. His family immigrated from Lviv, a historical city in western Ukraine, just before the collapse of the Soviet Union. His story is common for many immigrants of Slavic descent, but this was just the beginning of Sergey’s journey.

Dr. Lokot graduated from the University of California as a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2009. The doctor began practicing while continuing his professional development. He soon received his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon certificate from the University of Miami School of Medicine. Dr. Lokot is now considered as one of the leading specialists in his field. The doctor’s work schedule is incredibly engaging with six surgeries per shift being considered a slow day. Despite his busy schedule, Dr. Lokot makes time to share his expertise and knowledge with others. He often teaches as a guest professor in University Florida and lectures on regular basis at UCLA. He is also a frequent VIP speaker at dental conventions and seminars. Dr. Lokot collaborates with AllDent Multi Specialty Practice, a well established dental clinic located in Fair Oaks.

NATALIA PRISTUPA

Math Professor, American River College www.losrios.edu

EXPERTISE: ACADEMICS

Natalia represents two of the most esteemed professional fields – academics and medicine. She has a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and works as a math professor at American River College. Natalia is also a Registered Nurse and works as the Director of Patient Care Services at Home Health Agency. Despite the fact that these two occupations are completely different, Natalia appreciates both. “Both of my jobs are incredibly engaging. However, my professions enable me to help people with their academics or health. This notion brings me true satisfaction and makes me happy.” Aside of being an educated professional with evolving careers in two professional fields, Natalia is also an inspiring woman and a mother of two. She moved to California from Siberia, Russia, and managed to advance her education and career while being the sole provider for two children.

LYUDMILA GARNER

Teacher, Gateway International School www.gis-gcc-ca.schoolloop.com

EXPERTISE: TEACHING

Lyudmila Garner has been working as a school teacher ever since she graduated from the University of Ukraine, Kiev years ago. Garner regards her trade as a calling, rather than a job. “I was fascinated by all the new information I learned when I was studying for my teaching degree. I was thrilled even more about the opportunity to share my knowledge with my students,” recalls Garner. Immigrating to the U.S. became a huge challenge for Garner. She wasn’t ready to give up the career she loved, but the only way to teach here, in her new homeland, was by going back to school herself. Foreign language and a completely unfamiliar education system did not intimidate Garner. “It wasn’t easy to re-capture my profession from scratch,” says Garner, “but my passion for teaching was greater than my fears, so I kept learning.” Her dedication paid off. Lyudmila has been teaching with Gateway Charters for over ten years now. She considers Gateway International a perfect fit as the school offers a groundbreaking educational program that encourages intercultural understanding and prepares students to become active and compassionate lifelong learners. GIS is committed to creating a better and more peaceful world through their International Baccalaureate program, a vision that Garner wholeheartedly shares. RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

CAPTURING

KIDS’ HEARTS Truly remarkable outcomes are possible in a classroom where trust, respect, and caring relationships flourish.

C

ommunity Outreach Academy (COA) is implementing Capturing Kids’ Hearts school wide. COA’s goal is to build meaningful relationships with students, provide a safe environment in which to learn, and develop a dialogue for team-building. This, in turn, paves the way for students to be able to use the skills they’ve learned—with confidence and enthusiasm. One of the first things you notice when you walk through the Community Outreach Academy campus is students and teachers shaking hands. Every student is greeted at the classroom entrance with

RUSSIAN TIME MAGAZINE

WWW.RUSSIANAMERICANMEDIA.COM

a welcome handshake by their teacher. Not only is COA teaching students how to shake hands in preparation for the professional world, but every student is positively recognized by their teacher on a daily basis. Students are beginning to very naturally use this skill as they introduce themselves to new students or someone they don’t know in their classrooms. They will have perfected a professional handshake when they arrive at their first job interview. Once in a classroom, you will observe Social Contracts on every wall. A Social Contract is an agreement on behavior between the students and the teacher. Through a

structured conversation, students create their Social Contract with one another and their teacher. It is signed by all students and referred to frequently by teachers. It truly is a living document that is the foundation for each classroom. COA’s goal is to create selfmanaging classrooms where students help one another to honor their Social Contract. Shaking hands, sharing “good things” every morning, empowering students, sending students home with a positive attitude are just a few of many things the COA community does to build relationships between staff and students and to capture each child’s heart!
