TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF TECHNOLOGY
 
It is very difficult to put all results obtained by the group of co-authors from several institutions of SB RAS in the framework of the Integration Programme “Studies of the Solid Non-Equilibrium Products of the Mechanochemical Transformations and the Creation of New Materials and Technologies” into one short newspaper note. I will try to mention only major ones, the most relevant from the point of view of the project coordinator.

DISCOVERY TIMED TO THE OPENING DAY OF THE TOMSK TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY
 
Pleasant, or as one might say, sensational news has come on the eve of the hundredth anniversary of the opening of the Tomsk Technical University. For the first time in its history, one of the physical phenomena found by the scientists of the University was officially recognized as a discovery. The certificate issued in confirmations of the fact bears the names of A. Vorob’ev, A. Chepikov, and G. Vorob’ev. Vasiliy Yakovlevich Ushakov, Pro-Rector of TTU for the research sector, explains the importance of the discovery and the practical implementations of the technologies developed on its basis.
 
QUANTIFYING RUSSIAN SCIENCE
 
I am reluctant to repeat the notorious cliché about the ruin of the Russian science, its lagging behind the pace of the world science. There is no background underlying this point. The lack of the facts... However, recently, with great pleasure I have read the results of extremely interesting research by Yelena Mirskaya, Doctor Sc. (Sociology), the Head of the Department of Sociology of Science of the Institute of the History of Natural Science and Technology, devoted to the situation in the Russian science from the point of view of the sociologist.
 
UNDESIRABLE PROSPECTS
 
The relations between Russian Federation and Georgia that have been significantly aggravated lately due to the war in Chechnya, more and more resemble the “cold war” times. Numerous incidents in the Chechen section of the Russian – Georgian border have provoked the mutual accusations – Russia blames Georgia for open and hidden support for Chechen militia, and Tbilisi accuses Moscow of the attempts to engage the republic in the conflict in Northern Caucasus.
