Здравствуйте все!

Welcome back RCS Mavericks!! I hope all were able to relax and get well rested to tackle another year here at the Университета Техаса в Арлингтоне (University of Texas at Arlington). The fall semester planning has already commenced and we already have a few events coming up in the near future. However, we need to have our first meeting of the semester soon……as in this Friday soon! We currently do not have a room reserved for a meeting due to administrative holds over our organizations account but I’m dutifully working that out so that we have a space set aside on Friday. Nonetheless, it will be held at 12:00 this Friday (Sept. 2) somewhere on the 2nd floor in Trimble Hall.

If we do not have a definite room set aside for us, then we will meet in the McDowell Center (221 Hammond Hall), which happens to be connected by a crosswalk to Trimble Hall. Please keep in touch with us on our Facebook page for more details and other interesting stuff. Увидимся в пятницу! (See you Friday!)

Russia Clinches 16-Year Gold Winning Streak In Synchro Swimming In Rio
Russia’s dominance of synchronized swimming remained intact after it captured the Olympic team gold medal on August 19, preserving a 16-year winning streak. Russia has won every Olympic gold medal in the sport since 2000, so the victory was hardly in doubt. A near-perfect score in the free routine meant none of the other competitors had much chance of matching the Russians’ total.

The end of Soviet occupation in Germany
After nearly 50 years since the end of World War II, Russian troops finally leave Germany on August 31, 1994.
