    According to scientists, owing to this trend include isotopes far from Russian shores. 'We were the first in the area of the ocean to measure radiation levels. It is still difficult to say for sure whether we have hit upon traces of discharge of radioactive water from nuclear power plants, or the remnants of deposition from the air, but we incline to the first version '- says Hydromet Environmental zavsektorom DVNIGMI Sevastyanov. To determine the levels of cesium, for 12 hours at the station sampling researchers pumped approximately two thousand liters of sea water through the sorbent, which is sensitive to Cs, and then measured it on a gamma spectrometer. More detailed analysis of the content in the water of strontium-90, as well as isotopes of plutonium and tritium will be made after the end of the expedition. Grant of the Russian Geographical Society in expedition to assess the effects of natural and man-made disaster in Japan was presented April 15 the Far Eastern Regional Hydrometeorological Research Institute (DVNIGMI) Hydromet, which belongs to the ship 'Pavel Gordienko'. Rapid and detailed assessment of the radiation environment is carried out by the interaction of scientists on board the NGO 'Typhoon' Committee for Hydrometeorology, Radium Institute of the VG Khlopin (Rosatom), Gosakvaspasa MOE, Research Institute for Radiation Hygiene after PV Ramzaeva (Rospotrebnadzor), as well as meteorologists and hydrologists DVNIGMI Hydromet. Serious study of the ecosystem, Fish and marine life will be held during the second phase of the expedition.

    He is expected to begin in August or September at the training vessel 'Professor Clustine', which is currently being prepared for repair in the port Vladivostok. After the devastating earthquake in Japan March 11 and ensuing tsunami in nuclear power plants 'Fukushima-1' was recorded a series of accidents caused by failure of the cooling system. As a result of incidents at nuclear power plants revealed several leaks of radiation, which led authorities to evacuate people from the 20-kilometer zone around the plant. She later appeared on the information found in parts of Japan, the radioactive elements, in particular isotopes of iodine and cesium in the air, sea and drinking water, as well as in products.

    The nation or social class are just excuses-we warns-of manipulation that are power relationships where the hierarchy changes with time and changes the behavior (and thus the justification of the argument), giving as examples: the treatment of women, blacks or disadvantaged groups. As Mauss, Maalouf also considers the a Oeyo a category of the human spirit: a Not all of those belongings are, of course, equally important, or at least not have it together. But none of them completely devoid of value. Are the building blocks of personality, one might almost say are the genes of the soul a . Maalouf a speaks to examination of identity, instead of examination of conscience, and to do searches in the memory-use and semantic autobiographical, in which a representative is found in the multiplicity of traits that make up its paradoxes identity. We are informed of their status as Arab and Christian minority status and specific has determined that most of the decisions throughout their lives. a So throughout the story, Maalouf imbricate leaves the psychological and social in terms of global and multicultural in its own experience to demonstrate the folly and inconsistent of all the arguments used to justify the murder of Jews throughout history and how the observers, with no action (to be justified by saying that this has always occurred) are part of the nonsense. Maalouf a contrasts the image of the prototype character who denies his identity and puts on a mask that allows you to mistreat and kill the suyosa a to have the belief will be lower compared to how you define himself: a Each of my belongings I linked to many people and yet the more numerous are the property I have in mind, the more specific my identity is revealed.
