On behalf of the Siberian Branch of the RAS, in the Fair there have taken part the State Public Scientific and Technical Library (SPSTL) of the SB RAS, the Publishing House of the SB RAS as well as the Scientific Publishing Center (SPC) of the UIGGM of the SB RAS. The administration of the exhibition has granted charge-free exhibition places to them.
 
AN AGGREGATE PUNCHING FOUNDATION PITS
 
In modern mass building up, constructions with increased number of storeys predominate. In the circumstances of the shortage of free areas, the building is conducted mainly on bad quality slump grounds, the surface layer of which up to 10 m in thickness is unfit for usage as a ground bottom. In the middle of 70ths the Gersevanov Moscow Scientific research Institute of Bottoms and Foundations has proposed a method for raising heavy buildings using the foundations of shallow location. The essence of the method consists in the fact that before the laying of foundation, the surface ground layer is densified by deep impact ramming. An application of the novel technology will be provided due to an aggregate for ramming a ground, which one has been designed in the Institute of Hydrodynamics of the SB RAS with a participation of the Novosibirsk Architectural and Building University.
 
THE BASIS FOR OPTIMISTIC FORECAST
 
The scientists of the Melentiev Institute of the Power Engineering Systems of the SB RAS jointly with the experts of the Irkutsk Regional Administration, as well as with those of the main enterprises of the Fuel and Energy Complex of the Irkutsk Region, have worked out an integrated program for the development of the Fuel and Energy Complex of the Region. For the first time for last years such a comprehensive and well-founded forecast has been made for the future of one of the major branches.
 
REAL "FORGE" OF PERSONNEL
 
The Tuvinian Institute of the Complex Developing of the Natural Resources of the Siberian Branch of the RAS has been founded in 1995, at the time when "the science" by leaps and bounds was becoming cluttered with the problems that are sometimes quite insoluble. Nevertheless, the Institute that in October will already finish the first five-year period has noticeably strengthened its attitude as well as has expanded the field and the area of influence. About the collective of the Institute today there is had a talk with the Director of the TuvICDNR, Doctor Sc.(Geology and Mineralogy) V.Lebedev.
 
PARADOXES OF THE COMPLEX INSITUTE
 
In the Siberian Branch of the RAS a large activity on the complex examination of the Institutes is going on. On the next session of the Presidium of the SB RAS, May 18, the report by the Director of the Institute of the North Developing Problems, Professor V.Tsibulsky is to be held.

PELEVIN AND EMPTINESS

IN SPRING ONE WANTS SO MUCH TO LOVE... AND TO FLY
 
I don`t know what about you, dear reader, but I want every spring something impossible, dangerous as well as something promoting the maintenance of high epinephrine level in blood. It`s the best thing to fall in love. However, when I was offered to fly on a sailplane ("paraplane") I had understood that this is not the inferior alternative. All the more, just on May 1 the traditional spring meeting of the sailplane gliding amateurs was held on the riverside of the Inya River, 20 km from the Novosibirsk Academgorodok.
 
ITS MAJESTY RATING IS A NAKED KING
 
Just for several years at the United Institute of Geology, Geophysics and Mineralogy (UIGGM SB RAS) a counting of the ratings of the scientific research workers is carried out for every five-year period. The quantity of publications and the citation indexes (impact factors) of the papers published are taken into account. It seems to be a useful thing, justifying the evaluation of the results of scientific research work. However, the most prevailing part of the Institute employees is disapproving of this action that is supported only by a little number of the "foremost persons" of the list who have the highest rating values.
