The article is devoted to the questions of the world economy post-industrial development and the prospects of Russia. The non-material values as an integral characteristic of the modern «consumer society» are described. Validity of the application of the expression «industrial appendage» of the Center countries is discussed in the article. It is shown how the shift from the state industrial development to the post-industrial goes on and what consequences come. The works of well-known native experts on the various aspects of the post-industrial development who dwelt in detail on some nuances of the modern international geographical division of labor were quoted. The authors considered possibilities of the industrial structure transformation of domestic economy in the light of transition to "the knowledge economy" and highlighted the main limiting factors of our state inclusion to the vanguard of the world economy. Examples of the successful industrial project of China and possibility of this state inclusion to the elite of the most developed countries are given as well. In conclusion ecological consequences of the modern specialization of Russia on industrial productions of extracting and manufacturing sectors are analyzed, and unfavorable conclusions are drawn.
Based on model calculations, we show that ion-acoustic oscillations can be excited by heat fluxes in a plasma. We discuss the probable effect of ion-acoustic oscillations on the formation of temperature gradients at critical heat fluxes. The local critical heat flux in the transition region of the solar atmosphere is close to the well-known experimental heat flux from the corona into the chromosphere.
the article analyzes in detail the legal guarantees of the current legislation against unreasonable refusal to job recruitment and discrimination in the employment process
The Alford method is a modern tool for estimating anisotropy from cross-dipole acoustic logging records. The azimuthal angle of the acoustic anisotropy direction is estimated by the minimum cross energy of the converted records. The interval times (speeds) of the fast and slow bending wave pfast, pslow in the forward and reverse directions of anisotropy are estimated using the corresponding transfor-mations. Practical implementation of the method is considered, using the analytical solution of the min-imization problem.
The article discusses the conceptions of the Russians that are held by the contemporary Chinese. The research draws on popular literature on Russia, published in China during the last ten years, as well as on Chinese Internet materials and the author's own fieldwork. It is peculiar, the author notes, that in the sources studied, there are scarce mentions of the attributes that are common for both the Chinese and the Russians; whereas what is typically underlined is the controversial nature of the Russians, which is conceived as a negative feature or even a hindrance to mutual understanding. Relationships between the spouses or between different generations within a Russian family, as the contemporary Chinese see them, appear rather far from their own ideal. At the same time, the upbringing of children in Russia is assessed fairly positively, while the image of the Russian woman has much appeal among the residents of contemporary China.
This paper is a result of a study “Cross-border cooperation in regions of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine” which was carried out by the Eurasian Development Bank. The authors described the economic situation in the borderland of three countries at present and functional relations between border regions, assess the potential of cross-border cooperation, its institutions and the state today. Econometric methods are applied to an evaluation of the relation between mutual trade and economic growth in the condition of border’s different barrier role. Measures aimed to a better use of the economic, social and resource potential of border regions and to the increase of their role in the processes of integration are recommended
It is shown, that recently among technologies of integration of contractors at supply chains «Vendor managed inventory» concept has been growing in popularity (VMI). Basic definitions within the framework of this concept/technology are analysed. VMI technology is viewed within the confines of development of logistics and supply chain management, and are estimated those benefits, which can be derived (on the example of distributing system). Basic aspects are distinguished and analyzed, which are necessary to be defined while taking decision of implementing VMI programme. These key elements are: inventory emplacement, level of inventory monitoring and information transparency, stock replenishment system and property rights on inventory. Comparing characteristic of VMI and consignment is given. Advantages and disadvantages of technology for supplier and consumer are given. Practical aspects of introducing VMI into the company – distributor of spare parts to constructive road equipment are viewed.
This artcile examines the results of the academic school "Natural Resources: Historical Ideas, Exploration and Exploitation" held by the European Society for Environmental History, National Research Universtiy Higher School of Economics and European University at Saint-Petersburg. The main focus is put into the question of academic cooperation, main themes presented and prospects of learning about natural resources.
The article describes the author's psychological concept of "lifestyle". The specificity of a professional lifestyle are described. The new issues of work psychology, engineering psychology and ergonomics related to the research and design of specific professional lifestyle are described.

Housing construction in the Moscow agglomeration is closely linked with the migration of the population to the capital region. The acquisition of real estate by nonresident buyers in the primary market of the Moscow capital region (MСR) in the amount of 2.5 mln m2 provides housing for about 100 000 migrants per year, or about 40 % of the net migration inflow. Buyers from other regions account for 17 % of transactions in Moscow and 23 % in Moscow Oblast. The activity of buyers in the real estate market of the MCR has a spatial differentiation by the Russian regions, which is determined by the factors of natural resource rents, agglomeration effect, the status rents in the large cities, the distance from the MCR. Regional identity of buyers was determined by the addresses of their initial registration. Factor of natural resource rents is evident in the high share (6.4 %) of housing buyers in Moscow from Khanty-Mansi and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs that is almost four times higher than their share in the population. The factor of distance leads to exceeding 2.1 times the share of housing buyers in Moscow from the neighboring regions of the first order over their shares in the population. The greatest activity in the housing market of Moscow is characteristic for residents of cities with the 250 000—500 000 population, of Moscow Oblast — with the 100 000—250 000 population. The share of buyers from the million-plus cities (17.7 %) is slightly greater than their share in the population. Small towns and rural areas have weak buying activity in the housing market. Thus, the development of alternative to Moscow centers of attraction at the national level is associated with a change in migration incentives for residents of cities with 100 000—500 000 population.
