The GELATICA experiment in Georgia (GEorgian Large-area Angle and TIme Coincidence Array) is devoted both to the Cosmic Ray (CR) energy spectrum investigation at very high energies and possible correlations in the arrival times and directions of separate Extensive Air Showers (EAS) over large distances. The timing distributions between the consecutive EAS events observed at the remote installations in the towns of Tbilisi and Telavi are considered. The expectation time for a consecutive pair of remote random EAS events at these two installations is estimated under the condition of their timing separation being less then a tolerable propagation time of shower front between the observation points.

The aim of the article was to study tobacco consumption in the East Georgian region of Kakheti among rural and urban pupils using the anonymous epidemiological questionnaire. The survey was carried out on 412 pupils aged 15-18 years (220 girls and 192 boys). Research showed that 98,3% of teenagers are informed about tobacco harm; 71,3% of respondents did not know of the dangers of passive smoking. 63,9% of urban teenagers are non-smokers; 73,9% of rural teenagers are non-smokers. It was found that smoke (44,4 ± 8,28%). of 16 year old, 19,4 ± 6,6% of 17 year old, and 33,4 ± 7,9%. of 18 year old pupils. 2,8 ± 2,7% of 15 year old pupils consume tobacco. Tried tobacco for the first time at the age of: 12 (16,9 ± 1,78%), 14 (17,7 ± 1,8%) and 16 (21,7 ± 3,7%) Did not smoke (73,9 ± 4,6%), of rural pupils and (63,8 ± 2,7%) of urban pupils. The investigation showed that in Kakheti the consumption of tobacco among pupils is less than in other regions of Georgia (8,7% and 23,3% respectively), passive smokers (62,9% and 93,3% respectively) and incidental consumers of tobacco (25,2 % and 42%). In the region of Kakheti there are less passive smokers than in other regions of Georgia. There are no places separately allocated for smokers in Kakheti. It is concluded that it is necessary to increase the information of population in the region (local telecasting, booklets and other educational actions), concerning harm of consumption of tobacco and especially about harm of passive smoking. It will improve indicators of consumption of tobacco and will positively be displayed on indicators of chronic non-contagious diseases.

To study the distribution and repetition of droughts, an archive of droughts has been created in eastern Georgia for 19 meteorological stations for the vegetation period between 1961 and 2008. It has been evaluated geographic and meteorological conditions of droughts formation: conditions of humidity, temperature background, hydrothermal regime of soils. It has been studied the territorial distribution and probability of dry months, repetition of droughts within a season and a month, severe and ultra-severe droughts. It has been analyzed a multi-year dynamics of droughts against the background of global warming. © SGEM2011 All Rights Reserved by the International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference SGEM.

On the observation data of 30 meteorological stations in Georgia during 1961-2008, occurrence frequency and dynamics are studied of the most hazardous light frosts registered during the freeze-free period. Occurrence frequency of minimum temperature during light frosts is studied along with the light frost areas. Dynamics of light frost occurrence frequency in the 20th century is considered. © 2011 Allerton Press, Inc.


The research has been held in the city and its villages among schoolgirls and schoolboys out of them are city (n=613) and village (n=241) residents. The body height and mass, was calculated according to standard methods. Also research based on questionnaires has been held .This research determines social-economic statement, physical activities and diets of students. Statistical processing of data was done with the help of statistic method ANOVA. Data compared to WHO child grows standard percentage-charts, and to percentile diagram made for georgian children and adolescents in 2001-2003. Concerning the height indexes stunting was noticed among the village resident girls at the age 9-14 (8,9%) and 9-11 year old boys (3,8%) and it also prevails among girls that require further researches to reveal reasons. Also the amount of law height index among girls and boys is high in the cities as well as villages although it prevails in the villages, mostly among boys (30, 8%). Comparing with village residents high height index prevails among the city resident boys (18,7%) and among girls (11, 9%), and higher than 97 percentile indexes is revealed among 4,9% of boys living in the city. Mass deficiency was reveled among the city girls 2,4 % and the village resident girls 5,1%; accordingly it is prevailed among girls living in the villages. Mass deficiency among the boys was only revealed among the city residents and it was 3,9 %. According to our data, decrease of the body mass average index is fixed among girls but among the boys it increase. and among 2,4% of girls. So village resident girls are shorter and thinner, but boys are short and overweight, comparing with the city residents. Research based on questionnaires showed that city resident school children food ration, whose social-economic condition is better, is rich with proteins, when majority of village residents food ration lack proteins and mostly consist of those products which are rich of carbohydrates. According to surveys low physical activity was revealed among city as well as village resident school children, especially in boys. Average height indexes based on our researches have been compared to percentile diagrams for children and adolescents of Georgia , based on researches held in 2001-2003. The average height indexes of the students born in 2000 and following years (including from 6 - 13 years) are located between the percentage indexes 50-90 established for Georgian children, but at the ages 14-18 between 10-50 which indicates to the tendency of increasing height of schoolchildren in the city and villages During the last years, tendency in the increasing of height is fixed in India and Sri Lanka.

Appendicovesical (AVF) fistula is rare complication in the modern era. Only a few cases of AVF were described in the literature of the last decade. AVF is meanly associated with a history of appendicitis. The guiding symptoms are coprosuria and pneumaturia, with recurrent infection of the urinary tract. The accurate pre-operative diagnosis is difficult to make. It usually took at least one year from the onset of symptom to confirm diagnosis. It has been reported a few cases of 15 year history of undiagnosed AVF. We represent a case of EVF, spontaneously developed after treated acute appendicular colic presenting an unusual long - 15 years undiagnosed history, without presenting of typical symptoms. The analyses of disease history after cystoscopy lead to correct pre-operative diagnosis. AVF can develop as a complication not only after untreated appendicitis, but also after "successfully" treated with antibiotics appendicular colic may indicate the presence of an AVF and needs to assessing patient's history and applying cystoscopy and modern examination methods in complex diagnosis issues.

The Studies were carried in Georgia among 6-18 years old 854 children and adolescent; (417girls, 437 boys). Measurements of weight, height and chest circumference were taken from following standard techniques. The Body Mass Index of each child was computed as weight/height2. The calculated BMI was compared to the World Health Organization BMI - for-age centiles tables (5-19 years old girls and boys). According the given results the nutritional status was defined: thinness-2.6%, overweight- 13%, obesity-7.2%. The most 6-18 years old children BMI is adequate to 25th, 50th and 75th centiles of the World Health Organization standard BMI -for-age percentile tables. The thinness was revealed only among the children of 6-12 age group. With the prevalence among the girls. The high number of thin children is fixed with both 6 years. old girls and boys(6.4%).12 years old girls (11.1%),but the number of underweight children is less than the number of the same age schoolchildren in Tbilisi. The number of fat and overweighted children increases within the age and dominates among the boys. The highest percent of obesity was revealed among the children of both sex at the age of 11 (21.5%) also among the 18 years old boys(17.6%). The data analysis of the carried studies, allow comparisons with the other studies, carried out in different countries of the world. The data analysis showed that underweight, overweight and obesity distribution among the schoolchildren in Georgia is close to the statistics data of the Eastern and Central Europian countries.
