Amur Leopard National Park Opens in Far East.
22:04 10/04/2012 ST. PETERSBURG, April 10 (RIA Novosti)
A 261,000-acre national park in Russia's Far East created to protect Amur leopards began operating this week, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said.
“Five days ago, on April 5, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin signed a long-awaited order establishing the Land of the Leopard National Park. This is the first Russian national park created expressly to protect wildlife,” said Ivanov, who is chairman of the supervisory council of the Eurasian Center for Leopard Population Research, Preservation and Recovery.
Ivanov expressed optimism that the Amur leopard would avoid extinction. “Scientists do not think so and now we have everything to save it,” he said.
The Amur leopard population has steadily declined since the end of the 19th century and had reached a critical level. The main causes of the decline are “human activity, loss of habitat, illegal housing construction,” he said.
Establishment of the new park will give the leopard the required living space, he said, adding eight cubs have been born in the short time since the park's establishment.

Poland to ban GM crops?
theNews.pl 12.04.2012 11:58
The government has declared its support for a complete ban on GM crops, following discussions with representatives of Greenpeace.
“Both sides are of the same opinion on the need for the imposition of a ban, the only difference is in the methods used to achieve it,” Magdalena Sikorska, spokesperson for the Environment Ministry, has told the Polish Press Agency (PAP).
Last week, Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki announced that the government would implement a ban on the cultivation of the genetically modified MON 810 maize. The minister claimed the seed might be responsible for a host of health problems and may even be the cause of the dwindling population of bees.
MON 810 is one of the few types of GMO crops that have been approved by the EU, and environmentalists claim over 3000 hectares of the crop already exist in Poland.
The government now wants to pass a law that circumvents the need to receive EU approval for a ban on any GMO crops.
Revised Polish regulations would stipulate that the ban may be implemented, and it will suffice to simply inform the European Commission of the matter.
“We are pleasantly surprised that the government is looking for a way of actually implementing the ban,” said Greenpeace spokesman Jacek Winiarski,
“We were afraid that the current legal situation allowed for an easy rejection of the ban by the European Commission.”
Last summer, President Bronislaw Komorowski - despite saying that there was no scientific evidence that GMO was harmful to health - vetoed a bill that environmentalists claimed would let GMO crops in through the back door.
Last month, seven EU countries blocked a proposal proposed by Denmark – which currently holds the EU presidency – that would allow for the cultivation of GM crops. Seven days later, France imposed a temporary ban on MON 810, in spite of the fact that it has been cleared for use by the EU. (nh/pg)

Siberian tiger, leopard population doubles in NE China: survey.
CHANGCHUN, April 20 (Xinhua) -- The populations of Siberian tigers and Amur leopards, two of the world's most endangered animals, have doubled over the past 14 years in northeast China's Jilin Province, according to research results released on Friday.
The number of Siberian tigers has reached as many as 10 in Jilin in the period, said Qiao Heng, deputy director of Jilin provincial bureau of forestry, who cited a survey conducted early this year.
The survey, which was jointly launched by the forestry authorities, the World Wide Fund For Nature and the Wildlife Conservation Society, showed that the population of Amur leopards in Jilin had reached as many as 11.
The numbers were double those recorded in 1998 when Chinese, Russian and U.S. experts conducted joint research, said Qiao. With improved conservation efforts, there have been more and more tiger paw prints spotted over the past couple of years.
The official attributed the increase in wild tigers and leopards to a 16-year-old ban on poaching and the establishment of a 100,000-hectare nature reserve in 2001.
Since 1996, local authorities have seized 75,000 hunting traps and 18,000 hunting guns.
"Over the 16 years, poaching has been effectively curbed. This resulted in big increases in various kinds of wild animals and so big cats received proper protection," Qiao explained.
The local forestry authorities have rolled out a plan to double again the wild tiger and leopard numbers in the next decade, reporters were told as the research was released.
Jilin will set up new nature reserves and migration corridors, and expand tiger and leopard surveillance this year, Qiao said. Meanwhile, Jilin's neighbor, Heilongjiang Province, is planning to build two nature reserves to protect the big cats.
Siberian tigers and Amur leopards mainly live in east Russia, northeast China and northern part of the Korean Peninsula. Some 500 Siberian tigers and 40 Amur leopards currently live in the wild.
Total number of wild Siberian tigers in China is estimated at around 20, mostly in Heilongjiang and Jilin, and according to Xinhua's calculations, seven have been found dead since 1993. Most of their deaths were related to human activities.

History repeating itself?..
The 1973 Paris Air Show crash was the crash of the second production Tupolev Tu-144 at Goussainville, Val-d'Oise, France, which killed all six crew and a further eight people on the ground. The crash, at the Paris Air Show on 3 June 1973, damaged the development program of the Tupolev Tu-144.
One theory is that the Tu-144 maneuvered to avoid a French Mirage chase plane that was attempting to photograph its unique canards, which were very advanced for the time, and that the French and Soviet governments colluded with each other to cover up such details. The flight of the Mirage was denied in the original French report of the incident, perhaps because it was engaged in industrial espionage. More recent reports have admitted the existence of the Mirage (and the fact that the Russian crew were not told about the Mirage's flight) though not its role in the crash. However, the official press release did state: "though the inquiry established that there was no real risk of collision between the two aircraft, the Soviet pilot was likely to have been surprised."
‘No sign of survivors’ at Sukhoi SuperJet-100 wreck site.
RT.com 10 May, 2012, 05:02
Debris of the Russian Sukhoi SuperJet-100, which dropped off radar during a demonstration flight Wednesday, have been found on a cliff of Mount Salak, say Indonesian Air Force officials. No word has yet come about the fate of the 48 people on board.
"Rescuers on the helicopters could clearly see the wreckage located at the top of Mount Salak," including the blue-and-white of the aircraft maker, says Gagah Prakoso, a spokesman for the Search and Rescue National Agency.
"There is no sign of any of the passengers," he said, adding the helicopters are trying to move closer to the wreckage now.
The scattered debris of the Russian-made plane was spotted on a cliff of Salak, a volcano in Java's west, around at the coordinates, where it disappeared from the screens.
Ali Umri Lubis, a spokesman for a military airbase, says the plane was spotted in the Cijeruk area, near Mount Salak, close to the city of Bogor in West Java. The plane went down at an elevation of about 1,500 meters (5,000 feet).
Three helicopters and over 600 rescuers resumed a search operation around Salak on Thursday morning. Before that Indonesian authorities still expressed hope that the plane had made an emergency landing. But the capital's Emergency Agency chief, Ketut Parwa, admitted that if there had been an emergency landing, some information via the radio or phone calls would have been received by now.
The 48 people onboard included Indonesian businessmen, Russian embassy officials and journalists. Earlier reports suggested the plane took off with 50 people, but then it proved two Indonesian men had decided to skip the demonstration flight.
Relatives of the missing passengers started streaming to Halim Perdana Kusuma Airport in Jakarta on Wednesday night. The shattering news of the found wreckage reduced many to tears.
Russia's first all-new passenger jet since the fall of the Soviet Union disappeared from radar screens south of the capital Jakarta on Wednesday, 21 minutes into what was meant to be a brief demonstration flight. The vehicle was taking part in an international air show in Indonesia when it got lost around Salakat about 0800 GMT first descending to 6,000 feet.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered a special commission comprising members of the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Industry and the airplane manufacturer to investigate the incident.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono announced that Indonesian aviation experts will work together with Russians to I investigate the incident.
Undercover US agents brought down our new Superjet: Russia’s extraordinary claim about crash which killed 45.
dailymail.co.uk Will Stewart In Moscow 16:02 GMT, 24 May 2012
Spy sources in Moscow today made the astonishing claim that a US undercover operation may have sabotaged a new Russian Superjet plane that crashed in Indonesia two weeks ago.
The aircraft was on a demonstration flight aimed at securing lucrative orders when it slammed into a mountain killing all 45 passengers and crew.
'We are investigating the theory that it was industrial sabotage,' a GRU military intelligence source said.
The extraordinary Cold War-style claim echoes high-level allegations in Moscow that the US used powerful lasers to zap a Russian Mars probe seven months ago.
Other satellite launches - there have been half a dozen failures in the last 18 months - might be the work of US sabotage, raising the spectre of a sustained campaign against its technology by American secret services, it has been argued.
A headline to a story in Russia's biggest newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda today read: 'Are the Americans implicated in the Superjet crash?'
'We know that they have special technology - that we also have - to jam signals from the ground or cause parameter readings to malfunction,' said the unnamed intelligence official, highlighting a US military presence at Jakarta Airport from where the plane took off on May 9.
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is the first entirely new passenger plane unveiled by Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
It is designed to grab market share from Western manufacturers.
Russian officials insist investigators have established 'that there were no technical problems until the crash'.
After the Mars probe failed, Russians space chief Vladimir Popovkin warned: 'We don't want to accuse anybody, but there are very powerful devices that can influence spacecraft now.
'The possibility they were used cannot be ruled out.'
He stressed: 'The frequent failure of our space launches, which occur at a time when they are flying over the part of Earth not visible from Russia, where we do not see the spacecraft and do not receive telemetric information, are not clear to us.'
A senior navy commander also blamed the US Navy for the August 2000 Kursk nuclear submarine sinking that killed 118 seamen, since several US ships were in the vicinity of the Barents Sea exercises.

Medvedev Breaks Ground on ‘Innovation’ City in Tatarstan.
03:19 10/06/2012 KAZAN (Tatarstan), June 10 (RIA Novosti)
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medevedev and Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov have laid a time capsule at the site of the future “science and technology” city for 155,000 residents.
Medvedev attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the biggest project of its kind in Russia on Saturday during his visit to the republic of Tatarstan in the Volga region.
The so-called Innopolis, which incorporates an IT-village for 20,000 information technology professionals, has been set up on an area of 1,200 hectares 40 kilometers from Tatarstan’s capital, Kazan.
“Some 155,000 people will live and work here in several years,” Medvedev said at the ceremony. “It will be a very powerful and interesting innovation center, which will generate advanced ideas.”
The life in the future city will be based on the “live-study-work-rest” concept.
A 200,000-sq.meter futuristic technology park will be built during the first stage of the project in 2012-2014. It will have a shape similar to a football stadium with a garden and a restaurant at the center.
An IT university for 5,000 students will be built adjacent to the technopark.
“We believe that the construction of this Innopolis will give a strong boost to the rapid development of Russian companies working in the field of information technologies,” the message in the time capsule says.
Medvedev made innovation of the economy a key priority of the Russian leadership during his past presidency.

Humans Cleared in Chukotka Mammoth Extinction.
20:58 12/06/2012 MOSCOW, June 12 (RIA Novosti)
Prehistoric hunters are not to blame for mammoths going extinct in the Far East, one of their latest habitats, said a new joint Russian-American study published on Tuesday.
The reason why mammoths went extinct around 11,500 years ago in Beringia – a region comprising modern Chukotka, Alaska and far eastern reaches of Siberia – was severe cooling of climate, according to a new study published in Nature Communications online magazine.
Taiga and swamps replacing steppes in the region’s south also contributed, said the study, headed by Glen Macdonald of the University of California, Los Angeles.
The academic community has no consensus on what caused the extinction of megafauna such as mammoths at the end of late Pleistocene, when modern humans appeared. Some researchers blame overhunting while others put the process down to climate change.
The new study supports the latter theory, with researchers examining remnants of some 1,300 Beringia mammoths and 1,000 samples of soil fossils to determine the reasons for mammoths’ extinction.
Beringia teamed with mammoths between 45,000 and 30,000 years ago, but a climate change destroyed the shrubs and herbaceous plants that the animals fed on, replacing it with swamp vegetation in the region’s north, the study said.
The mammoths migrated south, but another climate change that destroyed the region’s steppes around 13,000 wiped out most of them, the study said. Human input was minimal, it said.
Isolated mammoth populations survived on remote Arctic islands until the 2nd millennium B.C.E., archeological data show.
Woolly mammoth grave discovered in Serbia.
BELGRADE, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Serbian archeologists on Wednesday announced the discovery of what is believed to be the first collective remains of a herd of woolly mammoths, local media reported.
Heavy rainfall on Monday at an open pit mine east of Belgrade revealed the remains of what could be up to six mammoths, not far from a site where two other mammoth remains were uncovered in recent years, the Serbian news agency Tanjug said.
According to Miomir Korac, director of the Archeological Project "Viminacium," which is named after the Roman provincial capital along the Danube River, the discovery came as a complete surprise.
The location covers an area of some 20,000 square meters on what could have been an island in the Pannonian Sea, which today represents the fertile plain covering most of Hungary and northern Serbia and Croatia, speculated Korac.
"I just do not know what to say, or what can develop from this. It is simply incredible," he said. "Now we begin to carefully research the whole area."
Korac said Serbian teams will use infrared imaging to get a better idea of what lies below the surface and at what depths to expect additional mammoth bones.
He said that the archaeological teams studying the ancient city of Viminacium and its Roman legion camp will be transferred to further investigation of the mammoths.
"This is a rare global 'treat' because no such place exists elsewhere in the world," said Korac, adding that international paleozoologists, paleontologists and archaeologists are likely to participate in the work to learn about life on earth millions of years ago.

No Technical Problems Found in Indonesia-Crashed Russian Airliner.
Novinite.com World | June 21, 2012, Thursday| 172 views
The Sukhoi Superjet airliner that crashed in Indonesia in May had no apparent technical problems, United Aircraft Corporation President Mikhail Pogosyan said on Thursday.
"According to the available data... there were no failures in the systems' operation," he said, adding that preliminary analysis of the on-board flight recorders has been completed, as cited by RIA Novosti.
Russian Industry and Trade Minister Yury Slyusar said last week Russia will simulate the Superjet's flight using a similar plane and present a report on the investigation into the causes of the crash before the end of August.
The plane was on a short demonstration flight for potential buyers when it slammed into Mount Salak near Jakarta on May 9. All 45 people on board were killed.
Indonesian and Russian officials have said the aircraft experienced no technical problems up until impact, but insisted it was still premature to say if pilot error caused the crash.
Big, big Moscow: City expands, thousands of officials pack.
RT.com 2 July, 2012, 11:45
Moscow has just doubled in size. The big changes to the city limits will mean relocating the country’s Parliament and Supreme Court to new greenfield sites - all to turn the metropolis into an international financial hub.
The Russian capital’s area grew from 1,070 square kilometers (410 square miles) to 2,560 sq km (970 sq mi) on Sunday. In terms of land footprint, Moscow now comes close to Paris.
The bold plan to create a “metropolitan federal district” was announced the previous June by the then President Dmitry Medvedev. The project was in line with the Kremlin’s ambition to make Moscow an international financial hub.
Besides global ambitions, the capital faces everyday domestic troubles. One of these is the gnawing issue of traffic gridlock, which has threatened Moscow with transport collapse. The city centre where most state and business offices are located is crying out for expansion – or a move outwards.
To deal with it, the capital’s extension plan proposed a relocation of some 40,000 officials to the new Moscow. Both chambers of the country’s Parliament, the Kremlin administration, the Investigation Committee, the Chamber of Accounts, the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Supreme Court are just a few of the high offices of state which will be packing their suitcases.
In addition to traffic, Moscow is facing an overpopulation issue; housing has turned into a headache for many. The capital’s density has reached 11,000 people per sq km, while in London, for instance, it is around 5,000 people.
The new city area, stretching for 1,490 sq km (580 sq mi) to Moscow’s southwest, is to accommodate and give work to around 2 million people. Dozens of projected business centres, research institutions and tourist areas paint a glittering future for officials.
“This will be a goose laying golden eggs,” says Moscow’s Mayor Sergey Sobyanin. New Moscow eyes boosted social welfare, but what’s tomorrow?
The new greater Moscow has absorbed two towns and 19 residential areas previously belonging to the independent Moscow Region which is separate from the city. But despite expanding two-fold in area, the capital has added only 250,000 new citizens to its 11.5 million residents.
New Muscovites will be eagerly looking forward to the capital’s social benefits. Some 4 billion rubles ($123 million) have been put aside in Moscow’s budget for that. Retirees are to see their pensions rise to at least 12,000 rubles (around $370) a month with the formal cost of living for Moscow senior citizens having been set at some 7,000 rubles ($220) a month this year. Funding of schools, kindergartens and hospitals will be also revamped to meet Moscow’s higher standards.
“I know a fire station is going to be built here now,” Aleksandr Pechurin, a new Muscovite, told RIA Novosti news agency. “Firefighters have not been coming as quickly as they should compared to Moscow standards. It takes them more than half an hour instead of 15 minutes, so when they arrive, there are only ashes left to put out.”
Still, many frown at the project. The Moscow Region in many places is a rural area where crops are grown and cattle graze. Urban standards just won’t work there, critics say. Especially if you think that not every village can boast stoves with piped gas or that many buildings were constructed back in the 1960s or earlier and have never seen major repairs.
Socially, the acquired land may amount to a different country.
“We live in a two-room flat and housing facilities cost us 6,500 rubles ($200) a month. In Moscow a similar flat would mean 3,500 rubles ($110) from your pocket. But bear in mind that prices here are as high as in Moscow, while salaries are much lower,” says another local.
The authorities have proclaimed a battle for “social equality” in the new Moscow. This has brought taxes down, but many fear officials’ enthusiasm could be short-lived.
“Nothing will change. Only papers and documentation will have to be redrafted,” sighs one local, thinking of long queues in various offices after personal and business addresses start mentioning Moscow.
Reclaiming and developing new territories will take dozens of years. Fresh projects listed include building two highways, extending the Moscow metro and constructing over 1,000 houses, as well as new headquarters for the Russian Parliament among other brand-new state buildings. But talk is already being heard that this expansion is just the first step before Moscow merges with the whole of the Moscow Region which surrounds it.
Bulgarian Scientists Bring to Sofia Elusive Higgs Boson.
Novinite.com Society | July 5, 2012, Thursday| 309 views
A team of 30 Bulgarian CERN scientists, who took part in what may prove to be the biggest scientific discovery of the century - the elusive Higgs boson particle – are in Sofia to explain what that means and where to from here.
Their experiments and achievements will be presented at a press conference at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences on Thursday.
Just a day earlier CERN scientists announced may have made the biggest scientific discovery of the century by capturing the elusive Higgs boson particle that gives matter mass and holds the physical fabric of the universe together.
CMS, one of the two Higgs-hunting experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, said they saw a "bump" in their data corresponding to a particle weighing in at 125.3 gigaelectronvolts (GeV) - about 133 times heavier than the proton at the heart of every atom, BBC informs.
"They have discovered a particle consistent with the Higgs boson," Professor John Womersley, chief executive of the Science and technology Facilities Council, has told reporters.
"Discovery is the important word. That is confirmed," he has pointed out.
"It's a momentous day for science."
The Higgs boson, sometimes referred to as the "God particle", has been the subject of a 45-year hunt to explain how matter attains its mass.
Once the new particle is confirmed, scientists will have to figure out whether the particle they see is the version of the Higgs predicted by the Standard Model or something else.

Bulgarian Boy 'Crowned' Best Teen Mathematician in World.
Novinite.com Education | July 31, 2012, Tuesday| 637 views
A Bulgarian school student has been titled the best mathematician in the world at the 2012 International Mathematics Competition & World Conference on the Mathematically Gifted Students, IMC, in Taiwan.
The Bulgarian news agency Cross reports that Konstantin Garov, 12, has literally defeated other competitors at the IMC and won the title in his age group with huge lead and superior skills.
The teenager's success is a great boost of his own image and of his school on international level. Garov is a student at the Mathematics School in Bulgaria's Black Sea city of Burgas.
After his win, Burgas was selected to be the host of the next IMC.
The young Bulgarian mathematician recently ranked 3rd in a competition with 60 gifted Russian children.
Russians will soon be able to buy domestically-manufactured tablet computers. The gadget will be equipped with its own Android-esque operating system, which, unlike its American counterpart, will not be sending private data to Google.
A prototype of the device was unveiled at the National Research Nuclear University in Moscow.
“The operating system has all the functional capabilities of the Android OS, but does not contain the covert functions of sending private user data to Google headquarters,” Andrey Starikovsky, the general director of the university-based company behind the tablet, told Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
While Google will not be available to users of the computer, dubbed RoMOS (Russian Mobile Operating System), due to security issues, an online store where users can buy safe applications for the device is in the works. The tablet will also be able to encrypt data and help users find their way around using navigation systems like GPS and its Russian alternative, GLONASS.
While the device will be sold to Russian Defense Ministry employees at first, it will later be available to civilians. The first basic 10-inch screen models to hit the open market are expected to cost 15,000 rubles (about $460).
Russian scientists in Siberia have discovered the perfectly preserved remains of a mammoth that reportedly contain living cells. The findings have sparked media speculation over the possible cloning of the wooly Ice Age giant.
The scientists were quick to deny the report of living cells, calling it “a misunderstanding.”
However, the international expedition Yana 2012 did find plenty of rich research material while digging in Yakutia, in Russia's east. But it is too early to say anything about living cells, not to mention cloning, Semyon Grigoriev, head of the expedition, told RT.
At a depth of 100 meters scientists discovered the soft tissue, fat tissue, wool and bone marrow of a mammoth. However, the materials have not been checked for living cells.
The findings are to be sent to Seoul, South Korea, where scientists will determine whether there are any living cells in the material.
But the media have already begun speculating about the possibility of cloning the Ice Age titan. Some reports suggested that controversial South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-Suk had already expressed interest in Yana 2012's findings.
Hwang, who became infamous for faking experiments in the field of stem cell research, has repeatedly spoken about cloning mammoths. In March, Russia's North-Eastern Federal University and Hwang signed an agreement hoping to produce a living mammoth within six years.
Experts from the Russian Academy of Science strongly doubt the possibility of discovering living cells in the mammoth's remains.
“The structure and the nucleus – in some special conditions of deep freezing – can be preserved, but a living thing means constant and stable exchange with outside the environment,” Aleksandr Agadzhanyan, Doctor in Biology, told RIA Novosti.
“So far, scientists have not been able to find even a full DNA chain in mammoth fossils, not to mention living cells,” he added.
Agadzhanyan also said that “cloning” isn't a proper term to use when speaking about bringing mammoths back to life.
Cloning is reconstructing an organism from a somatic cell, while what scientists want to do with mammoths is to add mammoth DNA to an elephant’s egg cell – a completely different procedure, he explained.
Yana 2012 was a paleontological expedition that included Russian, South Korean, American, Canadian, British and Swedish scientists, and took place between August 9 and September 5 in the Ust-Yansky region of Yakutia. The region is famous for its mammoth discoveries. In 2010, the remains of a now-famous juvenile mammoth, nicknamed Yuka, were discovered in the area.
Mammoths mostly died out around 10,000 years ago, however the last surviving specimen lived on Russia's Wrangler Island until around 1700 BC.
France says it will seek an immediate EU ban on imports of a genetically-modified corn made by Monsanto if a study linking it to cancer in rats is deemed credible. The findings of the report are illustrated in a new documentary film soon to be released in France.
