the chances that Perm Region will be lifted are high

On June 30, a meeting of the operational headquarters should be held in the Perm Territory, at which the possibility of removing a number of restrictions will be discussed. Two consecutive days – June 28 and 29 – the distribution coefficient of coronavirus in Prikamye is 0.79. This is one of the important indicators of the phased lifting of restrictions – for the second stage, it should be less than 0.8.

In addition, over the past three days, 510 beds were additionally re-profiled for COVID-19 treatment in the province. The indicator “availability of free bed fund” amounted to 67.7 percent.

– Over the past two days, key indicators have been kept in the Kama region at the level of standards for moving to the second stage of lifting restrictive measures, – said Sergey Nikiforov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Perm Territory, in charge of healthcare. – This allows us to discuss the draft plan for the transition to the second stage.

At the second stage, street cafes, museums and exhibition halls, shopping centers up to 800 square meters, children’s clubs, public organizations, research institutes, playgrounds and kindergartens, including private ones, will be opened.

As a source in the operational headquarters told Komsomolskaya Pravda, the chances are high that the second stage in the Perm Territory will begin on July 1.

7.8 km of temporarily allotted lanes will work, the following sections will be distinguished: on the access road to the Salaryevo slop-and-turn platform; on the section of the Solntsevo-Butovo-Vidnoe highway (between Kiev and Kaluga highways). In addition, traffic will be limited in the vicinity of the Kommunarka metro station, on the Kaluga Highway understudy in the area of ​​the Olkhovaya Metro stop for ground urban transport.

“Taxi access to these sites is also [будет] prohibited, ”said the department.


In “Roskosmos” called the cost of the rocket “Angara” :: Business :: RBC

The department noted that additional requirements for reliability are imposed on the Angara: it is created as a rocket for a manned program

The contract for several Angara-A5 missiles in the framework of development work was signed based on 5 billion rubles. for one rocket, which is significantly lower than the starting price. This was told to RBC by a representative of the press service of the state corporation Roscosmos.

According to the organization’s representative, before the production relocates to Omsk to the Polet site, the Khrunichev Center is forced to work at two production sites, which creates additional overhead. In addition, the Angara-A5, unlike the Proton, is created as a rocket for a manned program, which imposes additional reliability requirements on it.

In “Roskosmos” indicated that after the start of serial production of a closed cycle, the cost of the rocket will decrease.

The department also indicated that they had embarked on the implementation phase of a new generation of launch vehicles of all classes, from light to super heavy, and would provide their competitive tactical, technical and price characteristics.

Earlier, Kommersant, with reference to the financial report of the Khrunichev Center for 2019, concluded that the production of one Angara-A5 launch vehicle costs 7 billion rubles. This is three times more expensive than the production of Proton-M. At the same time, the publication indicated that by 2024 the cost of Angara could drop to 4 billion rubles.

In total, the Angara family includes three different carriers: the light Angara-1.2, the medium Angara-A3, and the heavy Angara-A5. Roscosmos expects that with their help it will be possible to replace the obsolete Proton-M and Rokot, and mass production will begin in Omsk in 2023.


salute from the cable-stayed bridge, hovering above the water Assol and space suits

The brightest evening of the country’s graduates ended, which the guys were looking forward to this year. So, as always, the Scarlet Sails Festival 2020 became a beautiful chord of the All-Russian holiday. This year it was both traditional and completely unusual at the same time. We tell you what the Scarlet Sails 2020 surprised.

The main innovation of this year is the change of locationPhoto: Oleg GOLD

Well, firstly, the main innovation is the change of location. For several years in a row, a snow-white brig passes through the water area Not you along the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Hermitage and right under the Palace Bridge. This year, another, no less picturesque place was chosen, with very recognizable sights. Petersburg – stadium “Gazprom-Arena “, Lakhta-center and cable-stayed bridge ZSD.

Access to all locations was closed due to the difficult epidemic situation both in the city and throughout the country. Photo: Artem KILKIN

The second innovation: live Petersburgers and visitors could not see all this beauty. And all because this year there are special requirements: because of the pandemic, access to the park is closed, it was also impossible to see from the water, since part of the Neva and the Gulf of Finland were blocked. GIMS boats and various services went around the water area and made sure that no one violated the ban. Law enforcement officers were also on duty on land: if they met people in a territory where there should not be anyone, they politely asked to leave the place and go home.

And at home, by the way, everyone would have considered it in the best possible way: there was a live broadcast of a concert and a pyrotechnic show on the Internet and on TV. By the way, on the screen you can see what on the shore would definitely not be accessible to the eye. And all because along the Neva and the Gulf of Finland there were several scenes at once and on each of them there was an action.

The main stage was next to the Gazprom Arena stadium, it was also very unusual – as if soaring in the air, and with it the stars acting on it. Leading the holiday were Ivan Urgant and Daria Александрова.

Timur Rodriguez, Vera performed their hits Brezhnev, RASA group, Dima Bilan and Surganova. And there were surprises in the form of a show of pirates and drummers, yes, it is worth noting separately what costumes the artists had – just space ones. Be sure to watch Bilan’s performance if you missed. And also a salute, well, the passage itself of a sailboat!

By the way, the pyrotechnic show lasted almost half an hour, hundreds of volleys were launched into the sky, the first cable-stayed bridge of the WHSD was used. It was both a platform for light, and for launching a salute.

But the highlight, of course, was the passage of a snow-white brig with Scarlet Sails along the Gulf of Finland Photo: Oleg ZOLOTO

And at the end of the extravaganza, the romantic Assol soared above the water to meet her dream. By the way, this year the holiday was dedicated to the author of the fairy tale about Scarlet Sails Alexander Green – marks 140 years since his birthday.

If you missed the broadcast live, there is an opportunity to watch the best moments of the show.

Zoos, playgrounds and hairdressers can open again

Es is a step towards more normality: Hesse will loosen the corona restrictions for many leisure facilities and service providers from next week. Among other things, playgrounds, zoos, botanical gardens and museums are allowed to open again, as the State Chancellery announced on Friday. Strict hygiene and clearance rules must be observed. Hairdressers, cosmetics, nail and tattoo studios as well as massage practices are allowed to offer their services again next week.

Hessen also gave the green light for dog parlors and dog schools as well as copy shops and music schools. “We have by no means survived the pandemic,” warned Prime Minister Volker Bouffier (CDU) in Wiesbaden. Protecting health remains a top priority. “We are keeping our course and loosening the restrictions where we can be responsible,” he said.

Clinics and outpatient practices can again carry out medical interventions and operations that were previously prohibited if they were not absolutely necessary. In recent weeks, such interventions have been banned in order to maintain sufficient capacity for Covid 19 patients. The state government also agreed that mouth-to-nose coverage must be worn in all health care facilities, such as hospitals and doctor’s offices.

Hairdressers expect a rush

Before the reopening of their salons after weeks of compulsory break, the hairdressers in Hesse already had mass requests for appointments from customers. Many are fully booked for four to six weeks or more, said the managing director of the Landesinnungsverband, René Hain, the German Press Agency. Masks and distance rules apply in the salons, magazines must not be read and the hair must not be washed unwashed. In order to understand possible infection chains, all customers should leave their contact details.

In order to support pupils in learning from home, Hessen plans to provide rental computers or tablets in the future. The offer is aimed at children and adolescents from households without adequate digital technology, said Minister of Culture Alexander Lorz (CDU) according to a message from the State Chancellery. The financial basis for the acquisition of the technology comes from an emergency aid program of the federal government for 500 million euros for digital learning. Hessen received a total of 37 million euros from this program, explained Lorz.

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hesse rose to 8393. The Ministry of Social Affairs said. That was 89 cases more than the day before. There are now 362 deaths in the country that are linked to the pathogen, 9 more than on Thursday. Only those cases are recorded in the corona statistics that have been recorded by the municipalities in an electronic database up to a certain point in time.

Discussions between Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the heads of state are continuing this Wednesday. On this day, concepts for opening day-care centers, schools, sports facilities, restaurants and restaurants as well as the topic of “trade” are on the agenda.

Celebrate in large groups: Because of the pandemic, this has been prohibited for a few weeks. Around 100 adolescents in Hanover tried to defy the rules.

TDespite the contact restrictions to curb the corona pandemic, around a hundred young people and young adults met in a playground in Hanover. The police had acted against the gathering with numerous emergency services, the Hanover police said on Thursday.

Local residents alarmed officials after noticing the gathering on Wednesday evening. With loudspeaker announcements, the police asked the adolescents to leave the square – which they did.

Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) meanwhile, in her first government statement on the corona pandemic in the Bundestag on Thursday, warned that the restrictions in the corona crisis will continue for a long time.


In St. Petersburg, a fine of ₽15 thousand was issued to a man walking with a child :: Society :: RBC

In St. Petersburg, they wrote out the first increased fine for violating the regime of self-isolation. About it informs “Fontanka” with reference to the regional Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

On April 7, the local police saw a 38-year-old man walking with his child in a playground in one of the courtyards on Lermontov Avenue. By order of the Government of St. Petersburg, playgrounds in the city are closed until April 30.

St. Petersburg authorities passed a law on fines for violation of self-isolation

An administrative protocol was drawn up for a man under part 2 of article 6.3 Administrative Code – “Violation of the legislation in the field of ensuring the sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population”, which provides for fines of 15 to 40 thousand rubles.

The Leninsky District Court of St. Petersburg decided to pay the offender a fine on the lower bar – 15 thousand rubles.


Coronavirus has ended film festivals. And now?

McLean, who had kept an eye on updates on the outbreak and prepared for the worst, agreed. “When the news finally came,” he said, “it was a relief that there wasn’t going to be a security problem, but it was also extremely devastating.”

In the weeks following the cancellation of SXSW, a number of film festivals and industry events met the same fate. Hollywood has been hit hard by the coronavirus: film studios have postponed the release of franchise films, theaters have closed in major cities as part of the effort to ban group meetings and slow the spread of the virus and production has stopped on a number of projects around the world. The Hollywood Reporter estimates that nearly $ 20 billion in revenue could be lost as a result.

For independent filmmakers, the interrupted circuit of the festival also suffers a severe blow, even if the impact is not so visible. As much as the premiere of a long loving labor may seem “nonsense” to Furloni, the lack of festival experience is bad for the health of the largest film industry. “Regional and local film festivals are the veins and capillaries of our industry that continue to be able to emerge new artists and help them build an audience that will support their career,” Emily Best, founder and CEO of Seed & Spark, a crowdfunding platform for emerging film talent, he wrote to me via email. “So we can’t just bypass film festivals, we’ve cut the future blood supply.” As events continue to be wiped out, these filmmakers are learning to adapt to a new distribution model. The only problem? Nobody is sure what that model is like.

Free land, for example, remained adrift from the cancellation of SXSW. “For something that has really been done independently and needs to be shared with the world, the way we do it is to start with the best film festival that best fits your movie and we thought it was SXSW,” said McLean. “And then after SXSW [was canceled, we thought]”Geez, we’ll look at other fantastic festivals we’re excited about,” and then one by one, they’re all closed. Now it’s kind of like “All right, so without a film festival, what is the path? ‘ “

For many, streaming seemed like the obvious answer. Given the reputation of big platforms like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon as content creators, rescuers of canceled shows and curators of special festival events, moving these displaced festival films onto the Internet seems like child’s play. And with people practicing social removal and self-quarantine, streaming has become a simple reason to stay.

The actor and director Mark Duplass was one of several people who require streamers to host virtual festivals, labeling a litany of major Twitter platforms and asking if they could buy short-term rights. But apparently, he told me by email, his idea wouldn’t work. “I’ve looked at it a bit and, as you can imagine, it’s quite complicated,” he wrote. “The major streamers have a set of delivery standards for these films that are too expensive, complex and grounded to change … and those standards make no sense for them to stream any movie in a short and limited window.”


The universe as a playground for foxes

“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows a big thing”, the Greek poet Archilochus was quoted in 1953 by the Russian-British philosopher Isaiah Berlin, who used this phrase to mark a fundamental difference between two groups of thinkers: the one who puts everything in the service of a great, coherent idea, and the others who pursue this and that – “centrifugal rather than centripetal” – driven by a multitude of unrelated thoughts and experiences. Dante, Platon or Hegel are representatives of the group of “hedgehogs”, Shakespeare, Aristotle or Goethe, on the other hand, to be classified as examples of the group of “foxes”. The British exceptional mathematician and physicist Freeman Dyson took up this classification again in 2007 in his book “A Many-Colored Glass – Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe” and applied it to science: “Most of the great discoveries were made by Hedgehogs made, most of them small by foxes. ”Science needs both hedgehogs and foxes for healthy growth: hedgehogs to dig deep into the nature of things, foxes to fully understand the complex, diverse details of our universe explore.

Sibylle Anderl

Dyson himself followed his Fuchsian interests by moving easily from one problem to the next throughout his life: mathematics, physics, technology, religion, philosophy, interpretations of the past and visions for the future. The fact that he developed decisive ideas as a thought leader made him a world-famous scientist and intellectual. “One can say that an article by Dyson will always contain the last word, derived in the most direct and elegant way,” said the American physicist Elliot Lieb in 1996, in the preface to Dyson’s book “Selected Papers”, in a nutshell of the way his colleague works.

Mathematical elegance as a leitmotif

The application of elegant mathematics to practical problems was a guiding principle of his scientific work. It was also the basis of Dyson’s contribution that earned him the greatest fame as a physicist: the harnessing of quantum field theory, a theory to describe the interaction between light and matter, in the interpretation of experimental data. Before Dyson, there were various approaches to this: a mathematically extremely complicated theory that could only be put into practice with great effort, independently found by the American Julian Seymour Schwinger and the Japanese Shinichiro Tomonaga. And a simpler, more descriptive method, developed in America by Richard Feynman, whose foundation and validity were unclear.

Dyson’s achievement was to mathematically relate the various approaches of his colleagues Feynman, Schwinger and Tomonaga to each other, to unite them and to make them practically usable. The three received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 for this theory of quantum electrodynamics. Dyson went away empty-handed, but registered this without any resentment. In his perspective, he had finally combined only what already existed, “fox work” on “hedgehog basics”.

Professorship even without a doctor

Freeman Dyson was born on December 15, 1923 in Crowthorne, England, to the musician and composer Sir George Dyson. From 1941, he deepened his early interest in mathematics while studying mathematics at Trinity College in Cambridge, including with Godfrey Harold Hardy. After the war he switched to theoretical physics and in 1947 as a student of Hans Bethe at the American Cornell University, where he also met Richard Feynman. However, he never completed the doctorate he sought there. His groundbreaking contributions to quantum electrodynamics, published in 1949, earned him a professorship at Cornell University in 1951, even without a doctorate, and a position at the renowned Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 1952. There he worked in many different areas of mathematical physics in the following decades. In particular, in 1966 he demonstrated the role of the quantum mechanical Pauli principle for the stability of matter. However, he also dealt with technological projects such as the development of a nuclear propulsion system for spaceships, known as the “Orion” project.

Since the late 1970s, he has increasingly devoted himself to writing, according to his own mentions to his early mentor Hardy, who had given him on the way: “Young men should prove theorems, old men write books.” Also in his numerous popular science works He dealt with a wide range of topics and most recently came up with points of view that did not correspond to the majority opinion, such as criticism of the predictions of climate models and elaborated plans for the settlement of the solar system, which also included problems of biotechnology. “Joyful dreaming”, an optimistic view of the future, was something that distinguished him. The next century will be that of the foxes, he wrote in 2007, because they are necessary to domesticate cutting-edge technology. Dyson will no longer be able to accompany this task himself. He died on Friday near Princeton at the age of 96.
