THE BRANCH AWARDS
 
SCIENTIFIC EVENTS OF THE NSC IN JUNE
 
NOT A SPECIFIC POINT
 
At the Irkutsk Scientific Center the meeting of the State Duma Deputies academician Sergey Kolesnikov, Yuri Ten and Sergey Levchenko with the scientists has been held. In the enlarged session of the Presidium of the IrSC the Chairman of the SB RAS academician Nikolai Dobretsov, the Chairman of the Rectors of the Irkutsk Region academician Michail Vinokurov and the heads of higher education institutions have taken part.
 
"ECO" IS 30
 
30 years ago the first issue of the "ECO" journal (full journal title being " Economics and Organization of Industrial Production ") founded by the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences have been published. A.Aganbegian has become the creator and the first General Editor of the journal. At that time such economic journals there were no more than a dozen, and the "ECO" that had become a bridge between science and practice had found the reader at once.
 

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of M.A.Lavrentiev
 
ON THE KARA SEA ICE
 
The Institute of Hydrodynamics of he Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences has not been constructed yet. Our laboratories huddled in temporary apartments near the Zyrianka brook. However, at that time we were glad even because of these rooms and conducted there the scientific activities according to our possibilities. In particular, under the leadership of academician Michail Alekseevich Lavrentiev our scientific youth studied an expediency of the blasting charge use for an ice splitting. It was important to establish a one- to-one correspondence between the blasting charge value and the ice thickness and to determine what the charges are necessary in order to make the given-sized opening cuts through ice.
 

May 18 is the Day of Museums
 
THE MUSEUM OF THE SB RAS, 2000...
 
Having no pretensions of a role of a critic, I`ve got into a position of a person who coincidentally attempted to delve into the present day of the Museum of the SB RAS and who is obliged to utter an opinion that is not the most competent one about future development of the Museum.
 
ALL THIS IS OUR HISTORY
 
The time passes, the people leave, and their deeds are mastered by new generations, which sometimes never thought that here, at the most beautiful place of the Krasnoyarsk suburb only 30-35 years ago gophers whistled, oats eared and the Yenisey winds blew. And the new generations of the modern young people who masterly drum on the computers and infinitely exchange new intricate concepts and terms ought to remember those who paved the way for them, created the base of knowledge, facilities and resources.
 

May 24 is the Day of Slavonic Literature and Culture
 
"ISLANDS OF SAVAGE PEOPLE", SIBERIA... AND THE EDEN
 
Textual critic notes and imaginations: reading Old Russian manuscripts.
 
ORIGINS OF SLAVONIC PILOLOGY AND PHILOSOPHY
 
May 24 is the Day of Slavonic Literature and Culture. Recalling Cyril and Methodius this day, the Prime Teachers of the Slavs, every year we fasten again our grateful eyes on the origins of the richest cultural and historical heritage of the Slavonic peoples, which one is inseparable both from the elightener activity of the scholar Soluna brothers, and from the present science and culture of the Slavs.
 

May 27 is the Day of Libraries

REFLECTIONS ABOUT VIRTUAL LIFE OF LIBRARIES
 
Despite of hardship of the reforms, the number of readers in the libraries has not decreased. The basic property of Russia most likely consists in this irrepressible thirst for knowledge rather than the fact that "we are the most reading people in the world". Whatever happens in our country: the forces of Nature are roaring, the ruble is dropping or the ratings decrease, but the prestige of knowledge remains everlasting and blameless.
 

May 28 is the Day of Chemist
 
20th CENTURY BY CHEMIST`S SIGHT

UNIVERSAL OXIDE SYSTEMS
 
The main problems facing the group headed by Doctor Sc. (Chemistry) Yu.Yuhin of the Institute of Solid State Chemistry and Mechanochemistry are studies of physical and chemical properties of various oxide materials as well as an obtaining of the compounds on the base of bismuth. These have gained widespread acceptance in production of ferroelectric, scintillation, acusto-optical and superconductive materials as well as of optical glasses, catalysts and pharmaceutical preparations. We have a talk about the field of chemists with the head of the group.

UNEXPECTED KIMBERLITES IN THE SNAP LAKE REGION
 
Last time, when a conversation turns to the present state of the art of science, chilling definitions are mostly used: disorder, decay, and crisis.... So much the diverse polarity news seems to be the more significant and encouraging. Those are evidence of the fact that even in the present severe circumstances, the science plunged into the Russian reform abyss, lives and produces such splendid results, which are considered as the outstanding ones even the much more successful states.
