Archaeological finds of burial in the Caucasus ascertain strange – a stylized image of the fish. What is the relationship of mountaineers to the sea? At the beginning of the new (2002-2005) thousands of years in the Upper Malki, in the vicinity of Kislovodsk and mining of Karachay-Cherkessia archaeologists have discovered several pagan shrines. Their description, chronological and cultural atributatsiya – until that matter of the future, today is only possible to state quite strange circumstance that brings together many of these findings in a row – in terms they are stylized fish. Who, what people, living in isolated valleys, in the medium, not even assuming ritualistiki slightest water, treated with such reverence to the fish? In an attempt to somehow explain the incomprehensible love of the ancient Caucasians to fish – in the lives of all the mountaineers of the Earth fish usually does not play a special role, so the the object of worship does not happen in the esoteric not functional – we turned to the history of Turkic peoples in the region and found another one, no less surprising fact. The Turks are known in the Caucasus long ago. Curiously, Balkar, and Kumyks, and ancient Bulgars, and not so long ago disappeared Karabulak in his past were either 'land' pagans, or 'heaven' tengriantsami, in the names of these people clearly read the word 'fish'. In the Bulgars, Balkar and Karabulak – 'Balyk', y Kumyk – 'kumug' (a type of salmon). The Turks in general – with the exception of the Seljuks and Ottomans – have not been spoiled by the abundance of water and its inhabitants throughout their official history.

Shirshov, RAS, Russia SanktLeterburgsky State University, Russia zone of mixing of fresh and salty river of sea water has long been attracted the attention of geologists, recently, with the beginning of large-scale geo-ecological studies on the modern shelf, this problem has taken on new significance as a major barrier for chemical physics entry of pollutants into the marine ecosystem. For the Western Arctic shelf, which has such an important feeding the province as the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, with its large river arteries, the problem becomes one of important. In theory, the barrier zone ekogeohimicheskaya, in the form of marginal filter (CMF), the most fully developed by A, P, Lisitsyn (Lisitsyn, 1994; Lisitzin, 1999). CMF occurs at zones of mixing of fresh and marine waters, in estuaries rivers. It has a size of hundreds of meters to hundreds of kilometers of rivers and large determined by the physico-geographical conditions and climatic zones.
Studies carried out on the shelf in prinovozemelskom 1992-2005, respectively, found here a number of original features CMF (Smith et al, 2004, 2005, Ivanov et al., 2004). The most detailed work was carried out in the bay area Nameless, which empties into the river of the same name. The most important feature of the shelf prinovozemelskogo is the presence of tidal currents tidal change in sea level ranging from 70 to 100 cm In addition, intense neotectonic movements have contributed to the formation of a large number of well cut into the land of bays and shallow lagoons.
‘From time to time, this amazing object emits more than a hundred flares during which some 20 minutes, “said Loredana Vetere (Loredana Vetere), which coordinates the surveillance conducted by the satellite Swift, at the University of Pennsylvania. ‘During the most intense outbreaks of the total energy release exceeded the amount of power allocated to the Sun for 20 years .’… The star, known as SGR J1550-5418, located in the southern constellation Norma (Norma). Start Series moderate flares of this star fell on October 3, 2008, after which time the flash stopped and then resumed with renewed vigor January 22, 2009 in the form of intense emissions. Due to the fast, one after another flares and gamma-ray spectrum, the astronomers classified the object to a class of ‘repeaters soft gamma-ray’ – it’s just a sixth of the known objects of this class. In 2004 a giant flare, which occurred on a different transponder soft gamma-radiation was so intense it caused the ionization of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, far from it over 50,000 light years: the additional information.
Using data from the X-ray telescope on board the satellite, Swift (Swift), Jules Holpern (Jules Halpern), at Columbia University, registered the first ‘light echoes’ that has ever been observed on the soft repeater gamma radiation. Images (pictures), the radiation received from the latest series of outbreaks, demonstrate that, apparently, is a system of expanding rings (halos) surrounding the source. Outlines multiple rings of X-rays interact with the dust clouds at different distances. Scientists believe that the source of outbreaks is rotating around its own axis neutron star – a super dense remains of a supernova with the size of a big city. With more in diameter, only about 12 miles, a neutron star contains the mass, the mass of the Sun. It is assumed that this specific neutron star is a ‘magnetar’ neutron stars with incredibly strong magnetic field.
Known theory of soft gamma repeaters radiation argues that outbreaks are caused by ‘starquakes’ occurring on the surface of the solid crust of the magnetar. Since there are great changes of magnetic field lines of the magnetar, the crust deforms under the action of a monstrously large magnetic forces, which often leads to the destruction of the cortex. When there is cracking of the cortex, cortical oscillations occur with the formation of seismic waves, such as those generated during earthquakes, and ejected the flash of gamma radiation. Topics Still, no one knows for certain all the details of what actually happens, and much work needs to be done to understand these largely hyperactive star. NASA Space Telescope Fermi (Fermi), recording gamma rays, which start was made in June 2008, is ideally suited for the job.
In Africa, was allowed to shoot elephants, on Sakhalin Island – Bears In South Africa, from May 1 lifted a moratorium on shooting elephants, which operated for 13 years. As claimed by supporters of the measure, during which time the number of elephants has more than doubled, from eight to 18 thousand, and now the elephants destroy crops, destroy buildings, spread the infection among cattle, because the fence corrals can not stop them. However, according to the order of the government, the killing of animals should be considered only as a last resort when regulation of their numbers. In South Africa shooting elephants is done with helicopters, one shot in the head, killing once the entire family group apart from other animals. Meanwhile, animal rights groups sharply criticized decision to abolish the moratorium and the proposed method is compared with the genocide.
They intend to sue, and to convince tourists not to travel to the country and fans – from going to the World Cup football since 2010, which will be held in South Africa. And on May 1 Sakhalin opened spring hunting season for brown bear. Results in the Sakhalin region during the spring hunting is allowed to get 30 individuals bear. Hunting will last for months. The license price that allows shooting of a bear – 3000 rubles. On Sakhalin, to date there are about 3.2 thousand bears, their age limit – 27-30 years. Last year, four registered in Sakhalin attacks of bears on people, including two deaths.
