A SONG UNDER STARRY SKY
 
Years are surprising things: one may reckon them, taking away lived life from some average number of them leaved to the person, and then all the decreasing part will not inspire with optimism and give hope for new deeds. But it is possible to count years in a different manner, adding and multiplying new and new lived years per new works, discoveries and achievements. People having a considerable reserve of optimism, biotic energy and inexhaustible, fanatical devotion to their work use such a point of reference. To such number of people one may with full confidence attribute Maria Ivanovna Dergacheva, Doctor Sc. (Biology), Academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, chief scientific worker of the Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry of the SB RAS.

ON THE CREATION OF DIAGNOSTIC CENTER
 
In the "SiS" N 7 the open letter of the employees of the Central Clinical Hospital to the Presidium of the SB RAS concerning creation of the Diagnostic Center has been published. The main problem stirring the workers of public health services is that why does the Presidium, at shortage of actual space and in general economic decline of the Hospital, transmit one of the newest buildings to the balance of the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry in order to organize the Diagnostic Center there?

SPRING 2001: IS THE ICE IS BROKEN?
 
Much in our economics is still vague, hazy and disturbing. We are living as on a swing: now there was an economic upsurge, now there is a default with sequestering of just approved state budget. Our readers have accumulated many urgent questions, thus today our correspondent Piotr Danilovtsev talks to the expert, well known in Siberia, Professor Grigory Hanin, who tells about his view on the development of Russian economics.
 
THE DEAD INVENTION
 
Recollect the 90ths. It seemed, all falls. At the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics about 500 employees have remained from 950 ones, and those worked mainly undertime. Full credit should be given Director of the Institute, Corresponding Member V Fomin: at the "Mechanics", practically unique Institute of Academgorodok, salary was never detained in contrast to another. There was a hope that the difficulties are temporary and it was necessary to survive. It has unexpectedly rumored that V.Zvegintsev together with collegues makes a sheller for buckwheat. But why it`s suddenly the buckwheat?
