Maria Simonova, Director of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Comparative Educational Policy at RUDN University presented a study “Trust in the judiciary and state systems as the main characteristics of civil and civil liberties in modern society” at the XI International Conference of Applied Research in Politics, Economics, Social Sciences and Technology (ARICPEST) 2019 in London.
Tatyana Larina, Senior Lecturer, Department of Sociology, RUDN Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, presented the study “Death Penalty and Euthanasia in the Context of Tradition and Liberalism” at the XI International Conference of Applied Research in Politics, Economics, Social Sciences and Technology in London (Great Britain) (ARICPEST) 2019.
The seminar "Practical methods of teaching audiovisual translation - the basics", organized by the Department of Foreign Languages of the Academy of Engineering of RUDN University, was another regular event of the permanent interdepartmental scientific seminar of the Commission of the Academic Board of RUDN University on research in the field of modern languages and translation. The workshop was conducted by Alexey Kozulyaev (Russia) and Tiina Holopainen (Finland, online inclusion).
Professor Aldo Spallone, a renowned neurosurgeon, attaché for science at the Italian Embassy in Russia, has begun his duties as a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Faculty of Continuing Medical Education (RUDN FCME).
RUDN mathematicians confirmed that the Earth has other satellites besides the Moon - cosmic dust clouds that are difficult to observe. A hypothesis about their existence had been developed 60 years ago, but first confirmations were obtained only last year. The calculations of RUDN mathematicians give a mathematical proof of the obtained data and will be used to plan space missions. The results of the study were published in the Acta Astronautica journal.
What is the role of language in the post-industrial digital society of the third millennium? This issue was discussed by the participants of the annual international conference "Society and Languages in the Third Millennium: Communication. Education. Translation", which took place on May 22-23, at the Department of Foreign Languages of the RUDN Law Institute to draw the attention of the participants to the various aspects of language functioning of the in modern society.
June 4, the conference “Global Trends in Migration 2020: Security, Health and Integration” began at RUDN. 150 delegates from 26 countries highlighted the main migration trends and shared practical recommendations. The focus of attention is the integration of migrants and their children into society.
In XVII century, summarizing results of numerous experiments Newton formulated the basic laws of classical mechanics. At the very beginning of XX century, analyzing laws of electrodynamics, Einstein proposed equations of motion of a very fast particle; it was the origin of relativistic mechanics. Decades later, summarizing empiric facts on micro-scales, theoreticians invented quantum mechanics with Schrodinger equation as its conventional version. These three branches of mechanics are in fact very different theories – in math sense as well as in comprehension, – and we have accustomed to learn and use them as separate informational units. However, Alexander Yefremov, a mathematician from RUDN University, claims that not all this is so plain. In his recent book “The General Theory of Particle Mechanics: A Special Course” issued by Cambridge Scholars Publishing (UK) in 2019, he tries to convince us that only one law of mechanics rules the Nature, the other three being its special manifestations.
May 22, 2019, the new composition of the Higher Attestation Commission of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia (139 members) and the composition of the Commission's Presidium (84 members) are approved. There are 94 new members in the new Commission (68%).
Natalia Zhabo, associate professor of the Department of Foreign Languages at RUDN Agrarian and Technological Institute, presented the author's theoretical and applied concept of multidisciplinary term systems to the linguistic community of the RUDN University.
A RUDN chemist synthesized nanomaterials for water purification, catalysis of organic reactions and sensors. The substances were developed on the basis of porous carbon with iron oxide and nitrogen particles. The article was published in Applied Surface Science.
If a patient is treated from ischemic stroke after-effects using the cerebral hypothermia method, their diet is adjusted, and they are expected to consume 20-25 Kcal per 1 kilogram of body weight. RUDN medics demonstrated that this value should be reduced by 15-20% to decrease the mortality and disablement rate among such patients by 2 times. The article was published in the Clinical Nutrition journal.
