Flu and respiratory diseases epidemics on rise in 44 Russian regions

MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) – Flu and respiratory diseases epidemics thresholds are surpassed in 44 Russian regions, the federal consumer rights protection agency (Rospotrebnadzor) said on Tuesday.

“Epidemics thresholds are surpassed in the republics of Tyva and Khakassia, in the Kurgan and Nizhny Novgorod regions, and in the Yamalo-Nenets autonomous area,” Rospotrebnadzor said in a release.

Respiratory diseases rates are growing both among children and the adult population. Epidemics are spreading among children in practically all Russian regions.

Lake Vostok may have previously unknown bacteria

Scientists say that the concentration of oxygen in water in the largest lake under the thick layer of ice is very high, 50 times more than that of ordinary drinking water. Microorganisms that can withstand high pressure, low temperatures and extremely high concentration of oxygen can survive in such a surrounding. Science knows only one species of bacteria that can live under these conditions. But some other species might have been preserved in the lake, says head of the laboratory for climate change and environment of the Arctic and Antarctic Scientific Research Institute Vladimir Lipenkov.

“Many researchers believe Lake Vostok was formed soon after the ice layer on the Antarctic grew to the present size. This occurred 18 million years ago. The lake was formed as a result of the melting of the bottom ice layer. This process depends on the surface temperature, capacity of the ice layer and heat flow that comes from the interior of the earth. Some others insist that the lake was formed before the glacial period,” Vladimir Lipenkov said.

Moscow State University Ranked 50th in World’s Top 100

LONDON, March 5 (RIA Novosti) - The Moscow State University has been placed in the 50th position in top 100 universities, according to the World Reputation Rankings, and is the only Russian university in the list.

In 2011, the Russian university was ranked 33rd, however, a year later Russia did not enter the list at all. This year the Moscow State University shares the 50th place with the US Purdue University following the University of Sydney.

Don't Eat Snow, Chief Public Health Official Tells Russians

MOSCOW, March 13 (RIA Novosti) - Russia’s chief public health official Gennady Onishchenko on Wednesday advised Russians not to eat snow or too many pancakes.

“In essence, snow is distilled water. Salts and contaminants have been boiled out of it,” Onishchenko, who heads the consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor, said at a press conference in Moscow. “But our air is polluted with gases, and the water has absorbed many bad substances, so the snow should not be eaten.”

Cancer Advance

By Irina Titova

The St. Petersburg Times

Published: March 20, 2013 (Issue # 1751)

St. Petersburg oncologists have developed a unique method of diagnosing and eliminating small tumors. The discovery, made by scientists from the city’s Oncology Center located in Pesochnoye, represents a major medical breakthrough, the news website Fontanka.ru reported last week.

Until recently, cancer diagnostics did not allow doctors to detect and accurately diagnose cancerous tumors of less than 10 millimeters.

Russian Scientists to Clone ‘Survivor’ Tree

VOLGOGRAD, June 18 (RIA Novosti) – Scientists in southern Russia are working to clone a 100-year-old poplar tree that survived the Battle of Stalingrad, a spokesperson for the local environmental authority said.

The poplar was damaged by bullets and shrapnel during the Second World War, when Volgograd – then known as Stalingrad – was the scene of a 200-day battle between Soviet and invading Nazi forces.
