It takes four minutes to walk from one end of the bridge to the other since Vorobyovy Gory is the longest metro station in Moscow, at 284 meters. Passengers at Vorobyovy Gory station.

There have also been exhibitions dedicated to Russian achievements in sport and space exploration. Fashion exhibition at Vorobyovy Gory station.

Trump's "Made in America" Week Prompts Corning to Announce 1,000 New Jobs
Roosevelt Room 3:05 P.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. Very exciting -- and exciting times at the White House. A lot of things happening that are so great for our country. I want to welcome Made in America Week. This is what we call Made in America --right here, and they’re all here. Some of the great business minds, businesses geniuses. Congratulations fellas, that’s not a bad statement. (Laughter.) But they’re right here with us, and I’ll tell you it’s an honor to have them. We’re continuing our celebration of American manufacturing, and it has been something very important to us -- Made in the USA, Made in America -- and our tribute to the skill, dedication, and grit of the American worker. We’re showcasing products from all around the country that are stamped with the beautiful letters "Made in the USA." Today I’m proud to welcome three more great companies -- we’ve had quite a few wonderful companies -- a little smaller generally speaking than yours, but every company is smaller than yours when you get right down to it to it -- to the White House for really a major announcement which you’ll be hearing: Merck, Pfizer, and Corning. These three companies are announcing that pharmaceutical glass packaging will now be made in America. That’s a big step. That’s a big statement. We’re very proud of that. Thank you very much, by the way. And I know they wouldn’t have done it under another administration. I feel confident. These companies have formed a groundbreaking partnership to create thousands of American manufacturing jobs with this innovative new product. It’s an incredible product. Merck, Pfizer, and Corning are coming together to create an advanced pharmaceutical glass packaging operations, which include an immediate investment of at least $500 million and the creation of nearly 1,000 new jobs -- and quickly. The initial investment will be spread across facilities in New York, New Jersey, and a new manufacturing plant in southeast of the United States -- they’re looking right now -- which Corning will be announcing in the coming months, and there’s some pretty good competition. I know they’re going to make a great deal. Eventually, the companies here today expect a total investment in this initiative to reach at least $4 billion and create some 4,000 American jobs. And it’s very innovative on top of it. This initiative will bring a key industry to our shores that for too long has been dominated by foreign countries. We’re moving more and more companies back into the United States, and they’re doing more and more of these products. And that would have been unheard of even a couple of years ago. These companies have achieved a breakthrough in pharmaceutical glass technology that will be used to store and deliver injectable drugs and vials and cartridges. This technology is not only great for American jobs and manufacturing, it’s great for patients who now will have access to safer medicines and vaccines. It’s also great for the healthcare workers who can administer the drugs -- makes it much, much safer for them and safely without having any problems and worrying about vial-breaking, which, as I understand, is a tremendous problem that we’re not going to have anymore. I know that Secretary Price and the FDA are committed to working with innovative companies like these. We have tremendous excitement going on at the FDA. Amazing things are happening there, and I think we’re going to be announcing some of them over the next two months. We’re going to be streamlining, as we have in other industries, regulations so that advancements can reach patients quickly. You’re going to see a big streamlining -- I think you already have. To a large extent, you already have. Very proud of that. I especially want to thank Ken Frazier, Ian Read, and Wendell Weeks -- so three of the great, great leaders of business in this country -- along with all the great people at Merck, Pfizer, and Corning for believing in America and the American workers. This announcement reflects a central theme of my administration that when we invest in America, it’s a win for our companies, our workers, and our nation as a whole. Every day, we are fighting to bring back our jobs, to restore our industry, and to put America first or, as you’ve heard, make America great again. That’s exactly what we’re doing. Some people have heard that expression. It’s been fairly well-used, I think. I want to thank you all for being here, and I want to thank you for your dedication to Made in America. Really appreciate it very much, and I’d like to have you say a few words. Come on up. Thank you. (Applause.) END 3:10 P.M. EDT
These flaming hot stocks are breaking through to new highs every day
Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Each new policy destroys another level of prudent fiscal/financial discipline. The primary driver of our economy--financialization--is in a death spiral. Financialization substitutes expansion of interest, leverage and speculation for real-world expansion of goods, services and wages. Financial "wealth" created by leveraging more debt on a base of real-world collateral that doesn't actually produce more goods and services flows to the top of the wealth-power pyramid, driving the soaring wealth-income inequality we see everywhere in the global economy. As this phantom wealth pours into assets such as stocks, bonds and real estate, it has pushed the value of these assets into the stratosphere, out of reach of the bottom 95% whose incomes have stagnated for the past 16 years. The core problem with financialization is that it requires ever more extreme policies to keep it going. These policies are mutually reinforcing, meaning that the total impact becomes geometric rather than linear. Put another way, the fragility and instability generated by each new policy extreme reinforces the negative consequences of previous policies. These extremes don't just pile up like bricks--they fuel a parabolic rise in systemic leverage, debt, speculation, fragility, distortion and instability. This accretive, mutually reinforcing, geometric rise in systemic fragility that is the unavoidable output of financialization is poorly understood, not just by laypeople but by the financial punditry and professional economists. Gordon Long and I cover the policy extremes which have locked our financial system into a death spiral in a new 50-minute presentation, The Road to Financialization. Each "fix" that boosts leverage and debt fuels a speculative boom that then fizzles when the distortions introduced by financialization destabilize the real economy's credit-business cycle. Each new policy destroys another level of prudent fiscal/financial discipline. The discipline of sound money? Gone. The discipline of limited leverage? Gone. The discipline of prudent lending? Gone. The discipline of mark-to-market discovery of the price of collateral? Gone. The discipline of separating investment and commercial banking, i.e. Glass-Steagall? Gone. The discipline of open-market interest rates? Gone. The discipline of losses being absorbed by those who generated the loans? Gone. And so on: every structural source of discipline has been eradicated, weakened or hollowed out. Financialization has consumed the nation's seed corn, and the harvest of instability is ripening in the fields of finance and the real economy alike.
