"WHILST SUCH IDEAS ARE BORN, IT`S POSSIBLE TO BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE... "
Vladimir Stepanov, the noted solar scientist, organizer of the SibIZMIR, creator of the first magnetographs of our country spoke: "A good exploratory tool resembles a violin: for to play it, it`s necessary know how ". The present deputy director of the Institute of Solar and Earth Physics (so the SibIZMIR is named now) Victor Grigoriev, according to his colleagues` declaration, possesses this skill perfectly.

IT`S HARD TO GATHER THOSE WHO`S GONE, OR TO BREAK IS NOT TO BUILD
More than three months has already passed from the date when the President of Russia V.V.Putin had signed the Decree "On the structure of Federal executive bodies" (May 17, 2000), which abolished main state bodies for environment protection of our country, i.e. the State Committee on Environmental Protection of Russian Federation and the Federal Service of Forestry of Russia. Their functions have been transferred… to the Ministry of Natural Resources that is the structure objectively interested not so in protection but quite the contrary, in maximal exploitation of the nature.
WE HAVE ONLY ONE BIOSPHERE...
The Novosibirsk Academgorodok and the Siberian Branch of the RAS, probably, again become a rather attractable place for worldwide scientific community. Such a conclusion arises itself after having two large-scale international conferences been held on August: on the problems of bioinformatics and on biovariety.
These letters delivered to the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the SB RAS literally in few days after the Second International Conference on Bioinformatics has been held, demonstrate an opinion on its level and value from the point of the Ministry of Science and Engineering of Russian Federation and Federal Technological Program on the priority lines of the science and technology development.
