    You can't judge the health of a country or its education system based on papers published... who is to say they are not just Polish revisions of western papers done in Polish to make them more accessible to a Polish audience.

    Equally I would suggest that when research is for military or commercial use and has military or commercial funding that publishing the results is the last thing they want to do.

    A peer review of the guidance system used in the Morfei AAM/SAM/CIWS missile is not really useful or even wanted by the designers.

    New steps towards the creation of a perpetual-motion engine
    The new science on friction: machines of the future will resemble fantastic creatures

    Friction can be useful. This property is being studied as a new breakthrough area of research in the science of friction, tribology, through the lens of synergetics (self-organization)

    Everyone in mechanical engineering knows the problems of friction. But only a very few people understand how friction can be useful. If you are not one of them, then do not worry. Only scientists themselves have made this discovery very recently.

    All researchers have unanimously hailed the new research direction in tribology as a breakthrough and a strategic move. This path of study examines the formative effect of friction on the basis of synergetics (or self-organization).

    Two discoveries of international significance form the scientific basis of this line of research: "the effect of wear resistance when friction is present" (1964) and "corrosion of metals in aqueous solutions" (1992). Dmitry Garkunov, an outstanding Russian scholar, Professor and Academician at the Russian Academy of Engineering, is the man responsible for these discoveries and the founder of this scientific movement.

    The essence of tribology based on self-organization lies in the special interaction of a part possessing regular surface pitting and a metal-coating additive. Regular surface pitting consists of special irregularities that are artificially created on the surfaces of rubbing parts, a system of micropeaks and microdepressions of the correct form. The metal-coating additive represents a special supplement to the lubricant containing quasi-liquid copper nanoparticles.

    The copper nanoparticles fill the pits in the surface of the steel or cast-iron parts, counteracting the wear caused by friction between cast iron and steel, steel and steel or copper and copper, which reduces the coefficient of friction in joints from 0.1-0.05 to 0.03-0.003. In addition, a special protective, continuous and constantly renewing property arises as a result of the interaction of this lubricant and such special pitted surfaces of rubbing parts: the so-called servovite copper film, which has phenomenal physical properties.

    The film is formed by the thermal and electrical energy that is generated by friction as well as by the chemical reactions of elements. As a result, the process of friction is transformed from being a destructive process into being a creative one that is similar to the movement of joints in the skeletons of living organisms, which also contain rubbing surfaces and the analogy to metal-coating lubricants: cartilage and synovial fluid.

    Scientists from around the world are devoting increasing attention to this line of scientific research about friction. Currently a School of Tribology based on self-organization is being formed at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University in Russia.

    Special laboratories are being equipped here with triboengineering devices that allow for pursuing scientific research. New types of metal-coating lubricants are being developed here and new methods for testing them are also being created. A small business to license the lubricants is planned to be created.

    Scientists discussed data from the latest tests of motor oils containing metal-coating additives in Norway and Germany at a national scientific research seminar and workshop dedicated to the "Results of the Implementation of Wear-Resistant Technologies in Metalworking Processes and Operations," which was recently held in Orekhovo-Zuyevo at JSC 'PCP 'Respirator', which is a subsidiary of the  Aviation Technologies Holding. The effect of their use is obvious: fuel consumption is reduced by up to 23% through reducing friction-related losses.

    New tribotechnologies are becoming more widely used in the transport, aviation, marine, chemical, metalworking, heavy machinery and agricultural machinery sectors. Already today they allow for:

    –reducing the consumption of lubricants by 2-3 times;
    – reducing the number of accidents by improving the reliability of friction joints;
    – reducing the atmospheric emissions of vehicles by 2-3 times.

    In the future scientists propose creating closed durable universal friction joints on the basis of new nanoscale tribomaterials and tribotechnologies. In terms of their physico-chemical mechanisms, these joints will be practically identical to the joints of living organisms with all of their natural self-organization. In other words, engineering will employ natural mechanisms to an increasing degree, and machines will more closely come to resemble animals.

    Academy 'reform' is stifling Russian science

    Insufficient funding, more bureaucracy and an inefficient government funding system are sapping the life from Russian research, says Alexey Yablokov.

    It is now a year since Vladimir Putin's government announced sweeping reforms of the Russian Academy of Sciences, stripping away its independence and placing it under the control of a new civil agency.

    How are things going? Not well. Unfortunately, some of the gloomy predictions of critics at home and abroad that the changes would stifle research and weaken Russian science seem to be coming true.

    I can speak as a member of the academy who works at one of its institutes. Formally, all of these academy institutes now belong to FASO, the government agency set up to manage us. The agency handles organization and finances, but the presidium of the academy continues to manage the scientific research. That's a very silly combination.

    As part of its new role, FASO demands information from institute scientists that would be funny if it were not so tragic. We are asked to strictly plan our research. For example, how many papers will we write in a year — in two years? What kind of discoveries will we make in two years? On the basis of our promises, they then give us money.

    There has, of course, been a great increase in paperwork. FASO says that it needs all this bureaucracy to guarantee our funding. The government transfers science funds to FASO, which then divides them among the institutes for salaries, expeditions, equipment, research, and so on. And just like any other bureaucratic organization, FASO wants to know what it gets for the money it gives.

    Not that there is much money. There are so-called mega-grants for scientific projects, but the academy receives only 30% of the budget that the government allocates to science. The remainder goes to the high-technology business area at Skolkovo near Moscow, the Kurchatov Institute (a national research centre) and other places.

    “We are creative people — and we need conditions in which our creativity can thrive.”

    It was clear that Russian science needed reform. But the situation now is ridiculous. What the government should have done was to strengthen the way science is funded, following Western examples, such as in the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany. There, when the state wants to support science, it mostly gives the money to an independent science agency, and the agency then divides it among the researchers, taking advice from the wider scientific community. The agency staff understand how science works — they understand which teams need support, and which teams say a lot but don't do much.

    In my opinion, the government wanted to liquidate the academy as a distributor of independent opinions. And of course, it wanted to get its hands on the academy's huge property portfolio.

    Traditionally, academy institutes, scientific stations and labs own a lot of buildings, many in very prestigious areas, such as the centres of Moscow and St Petersburg. The government probably wants to use these properties to make a profit. They have already taken some of the buildings from the presidium of the academy, mainly on Leninsky Prospect in Moscow, where they took two floors.

    We have been told that we, the academy, have one year to get used to the new system. But FASO will really be in charge in six months. It has already announced that it will cut 6,000 administrative jobs at the academy by 2018.

    Before, when I had to go abroad for scientific events, my assistant would take my passport to a specific department that took care of my visa and tickets. There were at least 50 people in that department in Moscow, and I never had any problems. Just recently, I had to go to France — but when I called that department, I was told that there were only five people left. I made the arrangements myself, which wasted time that I could have spent doing research.

    That might not sound like hardship, and it is true that some scientists are spending too much time at their holiday dachas and not in the lab — but this is because we have no money for good equipment and not enough money for field trips and expeditions.

    Of course, when the Soviet Union collapsed, many scientists simply stopped working and went to their dachas to grow potatoes and carrots, to have something to eat in the winter. The situation now is not so horrible, but I know that many scientists have another job elsewhere, just to earn some money on the side because their salaries are not enough.

    This is all heading towards the collapse of Russian science. Right after the reform was first announced, a huge number of young scientists and mid-career researchers with prospects and connections immediately turned to the West or the East. There are more and more of them, and they are now spending more time abroad. About three years ago, more people opted to stay at home when the salaries increased a bit. The brain drain slowed down, but about six months ago, it speeded up again.

    It is not too late to recover the situation. First, the government has to give us more money. Second, this money has to be distributed under the oversight of the scientific community.

    I am a biologist, and biologists know that some animals are not able to reproduce in captivity. Scientists are like that, too. We are creative people — and we need conditions in which our creativity can thrive.

    Chances are, this is bs. What he is suggesting they do is exactly what he mentioned they did at the start - give the money to an organization and they distribute it.

    Maybe he got denied funding.

    As well, if people want to move abroad, let them. Brain drain doesnt exist if everyone is educated.

    But, I bet after some time, these specialists and new ones will find other methods. Previous system was real bad.

    The problem is, all these specialists (in all countries) will talk about how important their field of expertise are, and how they need lots of funding. It seems Russia is funding now organizations based upon the importance the research will be. Hence fund them. So there could be a lot of BS research like there is here. If they are hurting for cash, maybe they should look at getting research grants from private enterprises and other agencies.

    Moscow State University president calls for returning astronomy to school curricula

    PLATEAU SHATZHATMAS, North Caucasus, December 13. /TASS/. Russian higher education community insists on returning astronomy as an academic discipline to general school curricula, Dr. Viktor Sadovnichy, the president of Moscow Lomonosov State University said on Saturday.

    He took part in a gala ceremony of opening the Caucasus Mountainous Observatory in Russia’s North Caucasian region of Karachai-Cherkessia.

    “I think astronomy must be returned to the curricula of general schools,” he said.

    Reforms depend on the people who carry them out and “lopsided decisions occur at times,” Dr. Sadovnichy said.

    He indicated that fundamental sciences, which are the locomotives of human development, suffered considerable losses in Russia in previous years. One of the landmarks of Russian science, the legendary Moscow Planetarium that had become an integral element of the history of Moscow City, was practically eliminated.

    Moscow State University helped with it re-establishment and reconstruction. “Now the lines of people waiting for admittance are as huge as the ones described by /Soviet poet of the 1920’s and 1930’s/ Vladimir Mayakovsky,” Dr. Sadovnichy said. “We’ve begun to fight for astronomy.”

    “Everything is getting restored step by step,” he said. “Theme compositions have already made a comeback and considerable efforts are being made in mathematics.”

    “We’ve rebuffed an assault on the system of inter-school competitions in academic subjects and it embraces almost two million school kids at present,” Dr. Sadovnichy said.

    He also recalled recent proposals to revive school-leaving exams in history and to make enter them on the list of mandatory Unified State Examinations.

    “As the next step, we’ll insist on the return of astronomy as a subdivision of some other discipline or a separate school subject,” he said.

    In Siberia, university-led consortium develops advanced OLED matrix
    Researchers at Siberia’s Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radio Electronics (TUSUR) have created Russia’s first prototype of a full-color organic OLED matrix developed by using printing technology, and have also come up with an instrumentation system to analyze the characteristics of such matrices, TUSUR announced.

    TUSUR has teamed up with scientific and industrial partners in Siberia and other Russian regions to develop a brand new technology of printing organic displays. The project is aimed at using printing methods to create domestic organic LED semiconductor based matrices.

    “OLED displays are superior in many ways to plasma and LC ones, but this country still doesn’t have its own technology to produce these… A technology will be developed to help set up shop completely independent from foreign suppliers,” said Alexander Shelupanov, TUSUR’s vice rector for research activity.

    One of TUSUR’s partners in the endeavor, St. Petersburg’s Institute of High-Molecular Compounds, is responsible for the synthesis of raw material, or ‘powders.’ In Tomsk, another partner, Tomsk State University, is tasked with making a special ‘powder’-based printing solution, and also with determining the composition and parameters of solvents. TUSUR is in charge of the entire effort, enabling the printing process and assessing its overall results.

    Sweet, future Russian 100% made OLED TV's. If they can produce enough of them and make them cheap, they could lead the OLED market since there is really nothing out there in decent price.

    Very promising development of more efficient superconductivity. Russian scientist have created a super super conductive materials that can hold people literary in the air. Shocked   Superconductivity is not new.. but the level they have taken this science is super amazing..  The video is in spanish , could not find any in other language.. but the images speak for itself. about the possibilities for new forms of personal transport. other than train.. but also new sports ,and also could be used to replace electrical power lines in cities and for laboratories to maintain two elements separated.. they say the possibilities of this new superconductivity technique is the the next BIG thing .

    Russian Scientists Create Unique Laser for Cutting Bones, Bio Tissue

    Scientists at Russia's Tomsk State University (TSU) created a unique surgical laser designed to cut bones and biological tissue.

    The device produces no charring of tissue. According to the TSU staff, this makes the laser stand out.

    TSU scientists tried various wavelengths to find the optimal solution. "We had to find the wavelength perfect for working with living tissue," Anatoly Soldatov, who heads TSU's Department of Innovative Technologies, told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

    The innovative technology, which has no equal in the world, could be used in neurosurgery, oncology, implants and other spheres.

    The strontium vapor laser is currently undergoing clinical trials in Moscow, according to the newspaper.

    Scientists said they were ready to release a limited number of the lasers in the near future. They hope mass production of the unique system would be launched soon.

    Russia have a lot of thieves of technology and talent.. in Russia ,hidden under
    label of a "organizations to promote Cooperation between US and Russia".


    Here is one inviting Russian talent to visit USA to a conference..

    http://marchmontnews.com/Finance-Business/Innovation/21388-Nano--Giga-invites-Minnesota-boost-US-Russia-collaboration.html


    they use a Russian traitor.. a 5th column ,who moved to USA to lure away more Russian talent to America..and now helping US and not his Country of Origin  in Science there.
    US congress also fund scientific projects in Russian Universities  "to promote Science" , that basically they put the money and finance any project research and Russian students give them back the knowledge for free to help boost their own technology industry..  IF they are so interested in "promote science" why they dont go fund projects in Africa?  or third world nations?

    For sure because there will be nothing to steal from them.. no much knowledge to gain..
    Russia needs to shut down all that "Science Cooperation " crap and say if there is Cold war..
    then No science cooperation for Americans. nothing. No free knowledge for them..  shut down any Recruiter terrorist of talent.. this is offensive and dis respective. .  So Russia needs to make it very difficult if not impossible any more recruiting of their scientific talent.

    American Government does not allow their best scientist to work for anyone else or best
    potential scientist..they cannot share their scientific knowledge to any other nation ,that will be treason.. why would Russia allow Americans to do what they block in their country?

    AFter all Obama told Russia is a Gas station ,why the hell then go to Russia to recruit
    scientific talent?  This is how you create the world most developed nation in the world ...with
    a massive program of stealing talent in the world best schools and steal the best potential students to work for their side..   This is why you dont see much competition in the world..or zero.. to companies like Intel or Amd in east.. or US IT industry.. because they steal a lot of good potential talent from Abroad. Not only Russia is victim of this Scientific Thievery ,but India and China too..

    All those Russians who can be worked over this way should bugger on off since they are nothing more than malcontents to
    start with. Russia does not need a layer of bitter idiots who resent not breathing the fresh air of American freedom (TM).
    The best medicine for them is to get educated by reality.

    Agreed with KVS. As long as there are benefits to be an engineer or scientist in Russia (accomodations, money, work, other benefits) the good ones will stay. Issue with Russia is that they dont pay for universitu thus huge portion of the population is well educated. And because of that, there are a lot of specialists with probably not enough jobs. As well, many act bitter and stupid for unknown reasons, and think the grass is greener on the other side. Recently I saw an article on various Russians moving to US, sillicon valley, to do their startup (they could easily do it in Russia but have this odd vision they can do it better out west. But the jokes on them. The US market is heavily over saturated and zerohedge mentions of the growing tech bubbles. So many of these Russian techies will eventually end up jobless and wanting to go cry back home (I dont think they should be welcomed with open arms).

    All the while, Russian it field grows and now, growing demands due to sanctions. Mail.ru, Yandex, 1C and others have made a fortune in Russia. Even VK, whom previous owner fled the country when he made real stupid remarks that ended up losing tons of money in the stock market, so Russian gov investigated him, and he left the country crying how he was being poorly treated. Even though he was a millionair thanks to Russia and Russians using his software.

    There is something else that i will like to call it.. Scientific terrorism.. When
    western scientist publish materials in magazines about "success" of some research
    and experiments that not true.. to keep away your enemies of the real science discoveries..

    I never see a major report of this.. i just imagined it was happening.. and effectively not
    long ago found people commenting about Scientific terrorism.. that consist on intentionally
    misleading in Public  ,the scientific community about new discoveries in science.. the purpose
    is to delay the investigation of others nations in same subject by confusing them.. And only
    a selective group of scientist which the Government hand pick ,really knows the truth about
    the latest discoveries in science.

    I even have heard the terms.. " American scientist magazine mafia" that is more similar to western media than science.. that keep releasing reports to mislead the scientific community
    that do not work on their side.  What all this means.. is that all so called "Theories" and Nobel Price Winners.. you need to be skeptic always and test thing by yourself. See to believe.. because any new US scientist "theory" could be just misinformation to delay the programs of other scientist working on the same subject. This other Scientific terrorism happens when the cure of cancer or aids discovered..and not released because is not profitable for major international pharmaceuticals that makes $billions selling medicine that alleviate the pain.

    This is why being a Scientist or Engineer in Russia is much more attractive ,than in any part in the west.. You know you will be working with science and only science and not politics. Russia is an independent country and no one can tell them ,how much scientific knowledge they are allowed to have..  as they have been trying to block IRAN from learning of nuclear energy and developing its nation ..and for the only reason they could continue researching on that is thanks to Russia. Also more attractive Engineering and science in Russia because they have their own Capabilities to investigate things with their own research. In the case of IT and Computers Sciences even better.. because you work with Virgin technology ,that no one have touched their hands..  And its secure to use..Is a low keep secret that US processors ,computers ,Microsoft OS ,smartphones and many things connected to IT technology have malicious spy hardware inside..  There are reports of even generic Cable converters tv boxes,,with spy cameras inside.. Shocked

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED5-iMVhDQc

    US Government is a total complete paranoid on spying on everyone..
    not only their citizens but the entire world...For stealing information that they can use later for
    questionable business practices or against you. But also spy on competition technology.. So every single popular electronic device or popular computer software ,smart phones ,Intel/Amd processors ,Home entertainment systems.. xbox.. etc.. all that technology from US or from their allies puppets colonies ,one way or other could have malicious spy hardware or software ,designed by US government . that have nothing to do with the product you purchased and its only intention is there is to be used against you. To steal your credit card data or your personal identity or your technology research etc.  

    This is why i really think Russia will make $Trillions in profits and take the whole IT industry by storm ,if they ever design their own but secure Internet ,with world wide coverage..their own COmputers.. Microsoft/NSA free.. that are really competitive with western designed computers and IT hardware..etc.. And this is why will be far more interesting for any scientist to work in Russia ,than in America.. because you are not developing science and technology to help a sociopath Criminal Government , to help them continue its technological influence in the world. and instead a Government that promote respect between nations and everyone being equal.

    i also have heard about the so called Einstein theory of relativity to be a complete lie ,
    including the stories of how it was "Validated" but i dont know about this.. all i know
    is that Scientific Disinformation is real , and its purpose is to delay the progress or advance of others nations in x or y research.. so they get the information first.

    Scientific Terrorism is real , and it is not done for Science.. but for politics or for delaying the investigations of other nations in the same subject or sometimes just for much bigger profits. like the Epson printers scandal. that were caught their ink cartridges to have malicious hardware inside ,designed by Epson ,that will not let you print more and tell you the cartridge is empty ,so you buy more ink from them..   Shocked

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LigFCow_ko

    I also heard from Russians  that apparently American IT companies ,that Russia hire at times
    to help their Business with Computers and in creating networks,, that their technicians goes and
    sabotage the servers ,to later charge more for their work.. So the same people that is supposed to help , break things only to charge you much more..for the final service.

    Is a complete corrupt nation from top to button.. and  DC Goverment encourage such practices with their own example. Business practices are all to make more profits and not a better service. And this is what Makes Russia really attractive in developing its own industrial revolution and replace all or most western made technology.. You will see real technology development to serve people and not technology to help maintain a corrupt government its control over society or help companies to keep increasing their profits at your expense.

    Siberian scientists develop unique equipment for US thermonuclear reactor

    The work was done under a multimillion-dollar contract between the Siberian institute and US company Tri Alpha Energy (TAE)


    NOVOSINIRSK, September 2. /TASS/. Scientists from the Nuclear Physics Institute (NPI) of the Siberian division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) have developed unique equipment for a prototype environment-friendly thermonuclear reactor being designed in the United States, Alexei Vassilyev, scientific secretary of the RAS Siberian division, said on Wednesday,

    The work was done under a multimillion-dollar contract between the Siberian institute and US company Tri Alpha Energy (TAE), the scientific secretary said but declined to specify the full cost of the delivery.

    "We have cooperated for years. We have a number of contracts. We continue developing equipment for the company," he said.

    According to the RAS Siberian division’s official publication, Science in Siberia, the equipment was successfully used in experiments involving TAE’s S2-U plasma facility. This produced impressive results of confining plasma at a temperature of 10 million degrees.

    TAE, a private California-based company, is developing an original thermonuclear fusion facility of its own. The system that TAE is using allows it to combine the advantages offered by linear magnetic traps and tokamaks.

    The design is expected to embody the environmentally friendly neutronless thermonuclear reaction of fusion of a proton nucleus and a boron isotope with the release of three alpha particles.

    The NPI-TAE cooperation is not limited to deliveries of research equipment under commercial contracts. The institute is a major scientific center for development of linear thermonuclear systems having much in common with TAE’s concept. NPI personnel have been proactive in experiments conducted with the use of the S2-U facility, while US physicists actively participate in joint work at NPI’s unique open-ended magnetic traps.

    i think is about the mirage of a rich life in west. but there is competition because a lot of people from around the world want to go to usa. so basically those russian engineers will stay poor if they arent really the best. also is another thing. they like that monkey being life style that they see in usa movies so they go to become a punk or whatever to have lot of fun.
