Cherepovets State University is one of the most significant educational institutions in the Vologda region. It was founded in 1996 on the basis of the Cherepovets State Industrial Institute and Pedagogical Institute. The underlying principles of the university policy are to educate students in such a way that everyone has the opportunity to develop his greatest potential and to lay the ground for achieving success in life.The present-day generation value education largely as a means of reaching a higher standard of living. The youth believe that the more schooling a person has, the more money he or she will earn. The Cherepovets State University is trying to adapt to the needs of society and reflect the nation’s basic values and ideals.The Cherepovets State University consists of the following institutes: The Humanities Institute, The Institute of Pedagogics and Psychology, The Institute of Metallurgy and Chemistry, The Institute of Economics and Engineering and the Institute of Extra-Mural Education. The total number of the students at the university is more than 5000. The university graduates various specialists: teachers, economists, managers, programmers, ecologists, technologists, metallurgical, chemical and electric engineers and others.Admission into the University is based on performance of the Unified State Test. The UST supposedly measures the student’s ability to perform in a university setting. In addition an applicant is required to submit a written application and a school-leaving certificate .University life is an unforgettable and useful experience. It begins with a solemn ceremony of initiating freshmen into the students. The rector, vice-rectors and deans make fostering speeches and congratulate students on their new status. The monitors hand out student membership cards, student record books and library cards.First celebrations are followed by days of hard work. The curriculum is rather tough and many academic subjects are put into the timetable. Everyone tries hard to be diligent. Some students must pay tuition fees, the others may receive scholarships. Some enthusiastic and zealous students who want to be engaged in research take a postgraduate course; write Ph.D. theses and later doctoral ones.The University offers a lot of diverse extra-curricular activities. Among physical activities sport is one of the most popular. Students have different sport facilities at their disposal. Competitions in skiing, basketball, football are held at the University. The University publishes its own newspaper, which usually contains the latest news about the students’ life.

In the article, physical development and physical fitness of students in the large industrial city of Cherepovets, the North-West region, with bad ecological characteristics have been studied. There have been obtained data on dynamics of weight and height characteristics of young men and girls aged 18-21 y. o., there have been worked out standards of the students' physical development. It has been found that their height and body mass were changing with age generally in alignment. Deviations in physical development did not exceed 7.0 %. The level of physical fitness of the girls at the age of 18-20 y. o. was lower than the average level, and the young men's physical fitness was at the average level. After the attainment of the age of 21 y. o., the young men and girls showed the observable lower level of physical fitness. The best results in physical development of both genders were detected mainly in the spring time. According to the Rufe test, the young men at the age of 18 y. o. showed the average and high working ability, and the young men aged 21, showed the average working ability. The girls' working ability was estimated as good one. Source

The assessment of dynamics of length and masses of a body of girls of 7-11 years trained at schools located in two districts of Cherepovets, different levels of pollution of atmospheric air was the purpose of our research. Under the patronage of the Committee for Physical Culture and Sport of the City Hall of Cherepovets within the city target program "Healthy city", assessment of the level of physical development of school pupils of the 1st - the 5th forms of Cherepovets has been carried out. Measurement of body length and mass was carried out with use of the standard anthropometrical methods by medical employees of schools. It has been established that on the termination of the primary school, the girls who were training at 6 schools of the Industrial area, have statistically authentically smaller body length and mass. Smaller sizes of a gain of dynamics of somatometric indicators have been found in them, in comparison with contemporaries who were trained at schools of the Zarechensky area. Source

We present information on the phenology, behaviour, population size, nests and nesting habitat, dates and intervals of egg-laying, dimension and coloration of eggs, and duration of the incubation period of the Longbilled Plover Charadrius placidus in the northern part of its nesting range on the rivers of the Sikhote-Alin Mountains in the southern part of the Russian Far East. Long-billed Plovers breed along rivers on shingle islands and spits which are large enough to fulfil their needs and which are only occasionally flooded. Such sites are composed mainly of shingle with stones ranging from 30 to 60 mm, with interstices filled to a varying degree with finer pebbles and always with sand just below the top layer of gravel. However, Long-billed Plovers only occupy such areas if they are at the initial stages of succession with few herbaceous plants and small willows. The hydrological regime of rivers seems to be a main factor determining the population dynamics of the species. Natural predators of nests and chicks include Carrion Crows Corvus corone, Jungle Crows C. macrorhynchus, Common Magpies Pica pica and Raccoon Dogs Nyctereutes procyonoides. In the places where Long-billed Plovers are disturbed during the courtship displays, they do not reproduce. The outcome of this work can provide insights to effective strategies for conservation of the species. © 2014, International Wader Study Group. All rights reserved. Source

New results (compositional data and reflectance values) are reported for some rare sulfides enriched in K, Tl and Pb, which are related to djerfisherite, thalfenisite, bartonite, a "Cl-bearing bartonite", or chlorbartonite, and also for shadlunite, from the Noril'sk and Salmagorsky complexes, Russia. Our observations and comparisons with relevant data in the literature imply that: (1) bartonite is probably a S-dominant (or Cl-free) analogue of djerfisherite; and a "Cl-bearing bartonite" and chlorbartonite are probably compositional variants of the djerfisherite bartonite series. (2) The most probable formulae of bartonite and djerfisherite are (K,Me 2+)6(Fe,Cu,Ni)25 -x S26(S,Cl) and (K,Me 2+)6(Fe,Cu,Ni)25 -x S26(Cl,S), where 0 a x a 5, respectively. (3) Two independent substitution mechanisms probably operate in the natural series. A coupled substitution [Me 2+ + S2- â†" K+ + Cl-] is reflected by an observed deficit in K, accompanied by the incorporation of Me 2+(Pb, Fe, or Ni) in the K site. Another mechanism is inferred to be [2Fe3+ + â†" 3Fe2+], which assumes the existence of vacancy-type defects at the Me site. Thus, the second mechanism could possibly control the existing variations of ∑(Fe, Cu, Ni) in the range of ∼21 to 25 a.p.f.u., documented in djerfisherite-and bartonite-type minerals. The minerals analysed from Noril'sk, which are free of Cl and related to bartonite and to a Tl-dominant analogue of bartonite (unnamed species), probably crystallized from microvolumes of late fluid rich in K and Tl, under conditions of relatively low oxygen fugacity in the environment. Uniform contentss of Fe and Cu, observed in coexisting phases of normal (Cl-bearing) djerfisherite and bartonite (or Cl-free analogue of djerfisherite) at Salmagorsky imply that they reached equilibrium with regard to the distribution of these elements during crystallization. These phases probably formed as a result of fluctuations in the ratios of sulfur and chlorine fugacity in a fluid at a postmagmatic hydrothermal stage. © 2015 Mineralogical Society. Source

The spontaneous ordering of fragments of macromolecules and the effect of birefringence in casted polymer films is described in terms of approximation of strong planar-orientation order in the multi-chain model, which takes into account both intraand interchain orientational interactions of chain kinetic units, as well as for transversal fluctuation of their orientation in the layers. Packing of chains in the plane-ordered state is impossible unless the interchain interaction parameter has a critical value. This value decreases with chain bending rigidity. The calculated dependences of the limiting values of the quadrupole orientation order parameter on the length of the Kuhn statistical segment describe reasonably well the experimental data obtained earlier for various polymer-homologues. The monolayer thickness in the films of some polymers has been calculated from the fitting of the theoretical results to the experimental data obtained from the study of the surface birefringence in the polymer films. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
