Esli v takich usloviyach v Pitere, naprimer, chestno otkazalivautsya pomoch rebenku, to v Irkutske medicinskaya pomosh predlagatsya v obmen na soglasie otdat rebenka na eksperimentirovanie s podobnogo roda zabolevaniem. No kakaya medizinskaya pomosh'? Edinstvennaya vozmosznost pomoch rebenku viditsya v tom, chtobi lechit ego zdes, v USA (ili mozhet byt', v drugoi zapadnoi strane; ya slyshala, naprimer chto opyt lecheniya etoi boleezni est' v Germanii.)

Company exists since 1986, but the main core of staff worked together since 1980. Our 200+ machines are installed at most leading manufactures, i.e. Intel, IBM, HP, AMD, Motorola, DuPont, Komag, Seagate, TI, in 15 states of the USA, UK, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Republic of China, Israel, Germany, France. Our main competitors are KLA, Tencor, Nikon, Hitachi, Orbot, Inspex, Currently, most of our system scan focussed (from 50 um down to 1.5 um) laser (HeNe, Ar+++, Diode) beams with wavelengths from 780 nm to 365 nm across masks for microlithography (up to 9x9 inch), hard disk substrates (25 to 130 mm dia., no more 14" Winchesters around!), X-ray masks, flat panel substrates (up to 600x600 mm), drums for xerography, etc. We are looking for (linear) scattering and usually employ several detectors in the attempt to distinguish types of irregularities of interest to our customers from things they do not want to detect. Sometimes we are looking in the bright field as well for info about surface reflectivity and/or profile. We are detecting particles in sub-micron range on rather "noisy" surfaces. We are always trying to do maximum in the optical "front-end" rather than get involved in massive data processing. Our pulses - in different systems - are rather fast, down to 70 nsec. Most of our systems are equipped with robotic handlers, loaders, unloaders, etc. We detect, count and map defects and often give user a microscope to look at the defect. In many applications we also sort their product with respect to number, type, density and/or position of the defects. We are always looking for new applications and at any moment of time are engaged in developing a number of new systems and/or upgrading existing ones. Some of our systems are described in our (obsolete!!) web page at www.qco.com. You can read about QCOptics also at www.financialweb.com/reports/opc.html. We do not publish much (competition!) but you can look up our ~dozen of patents (you can search under my name). We are currently trying to fill several positions in Engineering/R&D and Service Depts. For Engineering we are looking for an Optical Engineer/Physicist with 5-10 yrs. of experience to participate in conceptual development of new products, conducting lab experiments, building system prototypes and their characterization with further implementation in real-system design. Customer interaction, applications development, field crisis support are part of the responsibilities as well. It is our experience that people trained as "physicists" fit best in our environment, but EEs or similar were successful as well. We need somebody who is comfortable with optics, lasers, focussing of Gaussian beams, scattering, scanning, fibers (as lightguides, not for communications), coatings, polarization effects, microscopes, cameras, etc. Ability to spec tasks for hardware EEs and to communicate with software designers is a must as well as experience in translating requirements of optical design for mechanical engineers. Most important, desire and ability to read and learn, is required. Communicating with vendors will be necessary. Admittedly, ours is not rocket science and not esoteric physics at all. Satisfaction comes from seeing how your ideas are transformed into smart and useful machines and from interaction with a bunch of interesting and friendly people (well, not ALL of us are such, but many). Traditionally, at QCOptics, physicists are also controlling entire system design so one has to be able to enjoy a lot of cross-disciplinary fertilization (and frustration!) We are looking for a person still possessing some enthusiasm and prepared to work hard (often, noticeably more than 40 hrs/wk) for a reasonable salary. For Service, it is (almost) the same, but in the field, i.e. mostly in the clean room, dressed in a "bunny suit" if not in a fancy Class-10 space-like-suit with helmet, and under the watchful eyes of apprehensive user who is very pissed because your system (a part of multi-million-$ production line) lost 15 V power supply or your encoder on a 12,000 RPM spindle gives you 6 (or 600!) of once-per-rev index pulses. But you will see a lot of this big world (mostly, from the window of a comfortable - coach-class - airliner). If any of the above is of interest to you, and if you are a US citizen, please forward your resume/CV to me at sbroude@hotmail.com, or fax it to 978/657-6077, or (for the disconnected) mail it to: Sergey Broude (BTW, Fiztekh '73) Director of Engineering QC Optics Inc. 46 Jonspin Rd.

Any information would be very appreciated too. Here is a brief description of the case. My friend, Tokarev Boris is Ph.D. Researcher in the fields of plant genetics and biochemistry. He emigrated to Israel in 1991. In May 1992, when he was 45 years old, he suffered a first attack of angina. He was hospitalized and a doctor strongly recommended cardiac bypass surgery. The operation was performed in August 1992. During the operation, he suffered a severe stroke (CVA), but four days passed after the operation, until they began its treatment. As a result, the disability he suffered was much more severe than it might have been. The left side of his body is paralyzed and many other organ functions are impaired. He is now 100% disabled. The medical authorities have not participated in his rehabilitation expenses, so now a legal claim through the courts is his only recourse to obtain some compensation for the health damage he has incurred. Because Israel is a small country, it is apparently very difficult to obtain an independent medical opinion in my case. In any event, our lawyer has exhausted all possibilities of finding somebody here to make an independent opinion. Could you please recommend somebody who could study medical documents I have and give his Independant Medical Opinion. Any related information may be sent to my address or directly to: Boris Tokarev Midreshet Ben-Gurion, POB 40, 84990 Israel Tel. (972) 7 6554794.

"The only ones who will make decisions, the only ones who make decisions, are us and us alone," Netanyahu said in remarks on the Iraq crisis in a speech to visiting American Jews. During the 1991 Gulf war, Israel held its fire in the face of 39 Iraqi Scud missile attacks, bowing to U.S. pressure not to take action that could push Arab states out of a U.S.-led alliance to drive Iraq out of Kuwait. On a visit to Israel Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright spoke of a U.S. "iron-clad commitment" to Israel's security and gave notice any Iraqi threat to countries in the region in the current crisis would not go unpunished. "If they do threaten their neighbors or do damage to them our response to it will be swift and forceful," she said. But in apparent reply, Netanyahu said in his speech: "One thing has to be understood -- that we will do whatever is necessary to defend Israel and strengthen Israel's national security." He said Israelis should view the Iraqi crisis "calmly because there is a government here that handles matters professionally and with reason." Netanyahu spoke after convening cabinet ministers to discuss the possibility that a U.S. assault on Iraq would push Baghdad to launch missiles against Israel tipped with biological weapons. After the session, Deputy Defense Minister Silvan Shalom declined to comment on the deliberations but he said earlier that Israelis were thronging to army distribution centers to exchange old gas masks. Israel's Ha'aretz newspaper reported Sunday the United States had agreed in principle to send Israel vaccines against anthrax and other biological agents Iraq is believed to possess. The newspaper report, attributed to U.S. sources, said Israeli leaders asked Washington to store hundreds of thousands of doses of the vaccines in Israel. Asked if Israel had ordered the vaccines, Defense Minister Yitzhak Mordechai told reporters: "Some things are done in coordination between us and the United States to be able to defend ourselves today and in the future against the possibility that non-conventional weapons will be possessed by someone who wants to endanger us." Israeli officials have said the probability was low that Iraq would launch a strike but authorities have made clear they are preparing for the worst. The United States is rallying support from allies for a possible attack on Iraq to punish President Saddam Hussein for not complying with U.N. arms inspectors searching for documents and materials related to its weapons programs. Iraq says it has no nuclear, chemical or biological weapons or ballistic missiles -- banned under terms of the cease-fire that ended the Gulf War in which U.S.-led forces drove Iraqi troops out of Kuwait. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- From root Mon Feb 2 22:34:32 1998 >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Mon Feb 2 22:34:31 1998 Return-Path: Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu by psi.ece.jhu.edu with SMTP; Mon, 2 Feb 1998 22:34:31 -0500 Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA24056; Mon, 2 Feb 98 19:50:01 -0500 Message-Id: <9802030050.AA24056@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Thu, 29 Jan 1998 17:26:19 -0500 Subject: INFO-RUSS: Russian Law Knowledge?

Who would be crazy enough to stick live worms in his mouth to keep them warm, drill a hole in the ice with a corkscrew taller than he is, drop a line through the hole and wait patiently until an unsuspecting fish happened by? Why, a Russian man, of course. In fact, a few million of them. If there is a pastime here to compare to the American male's seemingly bottomless love of golf, it is undoubtedly ice fishing. Each winter weekend, fortified by nothing more than a mug of soup and a bottle of vodka, the men of Russia traipse off through endless expanses of snow to stand on huge stretches of ice in the hope of pulling a few small, mostly indigestible carp or perch from the icy depths beneath them. "What do you mean why?" Igor Makharov, 54, shouted in response to the obvious question. An engineer, Makharov was standing in the middle of the Tom River here, not 10 minutes' walk from the center of the city. Other men -- always alone -- had fanned out across the frozen river, each boring holes through the 2-foot floor of ice. The temperature stood at 32 degrees below zero, but Makharov was in heaven. "I don't know how people live without ice fishing," he said. "If you had ever done it even once, you wouldn't have to ask such a ridiculous question." "Can you just feel how clear the air is?" he asked in all seriousness as his listeners frantically stamped their feet in a futile attempt to share the pleasure of the moment. "To fish here on a day like today is absolute joy. Anybody can fish in the summer. It's not the same. Ice fishing is the only real way I have ever found to forget my troubles completely. It is the most peaceful thing a man can do." It also seems to be the perfect expression of two immutable Russian traits: a love of suffering and a mystical soul. Standing alone, swallowed by vistas of white on every side, gives any Russian who wants it the chance to star, if only in his own mind and only for a little while, in a personal version of "Dr. Zhivago" or "War and Peace." Such is the popularity -- and importance -- of ice fishing, that on his recent vacation in the snowy wilds of northwest Russia, President Boris Yeltsin made a big show of spending some time on the river every day. Nobody ever says what they catch. It doesn't matter. Russian men will stand on a sheet of ice until their toes freeze, carefully bending over with a soup ladle to flick unwanted chunks of ice from a lovingly crafted fishing hole. They will return to the same spot on the same river or lake week after week, certain that their spot has a special meaning that could not be found anywhere else on earth. The routine never varies. The men lower a lure -- a worm warmed by mouth or kept alive pinned in an armpit -- and then they retreat to a stool and a bottle for a half-hour to see what happens. Like so much of Russian life itself, the experience is really a challenge: the ultimate outward bound event. It can also be perilous. Ice fishing may sound sedate, but it is often deadly. So far in Russia, more than 50 people have died ice fishing this winter. Some fell through unexpected cracks in the ice. Two froze to death. Several simply drifted on a broken ice floe out to sea. Last year so many people near St. Petersburg came unmoored on giant hunks of ice that the police started a regular boat patrol along the coast. Fishermen complained that it scared their prey. "There is a little risk to everything that's wonderful," said Sergei Shubov, 44, an electrician. He argues that serenity and isolation are well worth a small chance of frostbite or death. "Look at Russia's favorite summer hobby," he said. "Do you know how many people die gathering poison mushrooms every year? It doesn't mean it isn't fun." There must be something to the serenity, because nobody could be doing this for the fish. A man can stand from morning till night, often wrapped in a plastic garbage bag with a hole big enough for a bottle, and his catch can amount to three to five scrawny white fish. There was a time when no one who fished here could ever fail. Before the Soviet Union turned much of this area into an industrial dump, residents used to take thousands of tons of fish each year from the rivers and lakes of Siberia. Hunting and fishing made the region prosperous. No more, though. Tomsk is like most big cities in central Russia and Siberia: Industries dot the riverbanks, and sewage and chemical waste are dumped into the river without a thought to the consequences. "The fish may be polluted," said Shubov, who does this every week of the winter -- and in Siberia that's a lot of weeks. "Most people say that if you catch them in winter, they are cleaner. But I don't really do it for the fish. I don't even eat them. I do it for the chance to be alone with my thoughts." Asked if he thought it was a rather extreme way of getting to know himself better, Shubov laughed. "This is how Russians relax," he said. "Who said it's supposed to be comfortable?"

I want all of you to make it home alive. Don't kill your parents, your brothers and sisters." The slight, 22-year-old woman stopped there, unable to go on. When her words returned in Hebrew, many of the purple-bereted combat soldiers, some of them fresh from the combat zone of southern Lebanon, swallowed hard and looked away. Until Sgt. Nikolai Rappaport was killed by a blast of Hezbollah shrapnel in the neck on Saturday, none of them knew that the 23-year-old recent Russian immigrant had this sister, or that his father, Ilya, 62, had been unemployed for months, or that they lived in poverty in a tiny room in a tin-roofed storehouse in the seedy Shapira district of Tel Aviv. The story of the quiet immigrant from Russia who found a home in an Israeli combat unit and volunteered for every patrol -- including the one that killed him -- while his small family wrestled with privation and misery, sent a wave of shame through the army and the society. That was especially so when Ilya Rappaport said he would take Nikolai's body back to his native Krasnodar, in the northern Caucasus, so his mother could be at the burial. Though neither the father nor the sister uttered a word of complaint, there was a sense, captured in eulogies and press commentaries, that Israel had somehow failed these people. "Now, after his death, everyone in Israel has seen the single room where he, his father and his sister lived -- and we are ashamed," The Jerusalem Post said in an editorial. "The situation of this one grieving family shines a spotlight on the difficulties that remain for many new immigrants from the former Soviet Union." "Two foreigners stood there, isolated, in a sea of purple army berets of the Givati unit," Sima Kadmon wrote in Maariv, another daily. "Even his death failed to incorporate them in our society. Even before they could learn how to adapt here, they learned what it means to die here." Unspoken at the funeral, but understood by all present, was the fact that had Rappaport decided to have the funeral in Israel, his son would have been buried outside the cemetery walls, because by the Orthodox Jewish law in force, he was not even Jewish, since his mother was not. The Law of Return grants automatic citizenship to anyone who has a Jewish grandparent, but religious law recognizes only those whose mothers were Jewish. The story of the Rappaports seemed to remind Israelis how little they really know about the travails and lives of the hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews who have immigrated to Israel in the last decade, and especially those like Ilya Rappaport who have been too old or too limited in their training to integrate themselves into the brash, fast-paced Israeli life. "We stand here embarrassed that we did not see, did not hear, did not ask and did not know how difficult it was for your family," said Sergeant Rappaport's Hebrew teacher, Tova Nayberg, one of the few people from outside the Givati Brigade who went to the ceremony. The slight Rappaport, unshaven and dressed in a thin brown jacket that seemed to offer little protection against the cold, was unable to read the Kaddish, the Jewish mourner's prayer, and let the chaplain do it. When asked to say a word, he was hesitant. "I'll try," he said in Russian. "I'll see if I can. I want to tell all you soldiers: fulfill your duty, of course, but do return home. Please excuse me." The plight of the Rappaports first came to light when President Ezer Weizman went to their hovel to pay a call on Sunday. He and the officers who went with him were horrified. "It is a pity we have come to this point, in which the family of a fighter in the Israel Defense Force is living in such disgraceful conditions," Weizman declared. "If the IDF did not know about this, that is terrible." At the brief military memorial service at the military induction base here, the guilt was as tangible as the grief. "Forgive us for our deeds," the army cantor intoned. "Everything we did was for you, according to the traditions of Israel and the practices of our holy land." And in interviews after Sergeant Rappaport's coffin was driven off in an army truck for the El Al flight to Russia, his commanders and comrades tried to explain why they had known so little. "We never suspected his situation," said Pvt. Vadim Kutsik, a Russian-speaking member of Sergeant Rappaport's unit who was wounded in the same ambush. "He was very quiet; he never told anyone. I only learned about it from TV." It turned out that Sergeant Rappaport had applied for financial assistance but apparently concealed the fact that his father lost his job as a welder last summer, possibly because he might have been reassigned to a noncombat unit nearer home. At the same time, he never told his father that he was serving in a unit assigned to the Israeli-controlled buffer zone in southern Lebanon. As a combat soldier, Sergeant Rappaport earned about $170 a month. Ilya and Nikolai Rappaport immigrated to Israel three years ago to seek a better life. Ilya Rappaport's wife, Klavdiya, who is not Jewish, stayed behind, reportedly because she was very sick. Olga Rappaport arrived in Israel two months ago, saying she missed her brother. It is not an unusual story among recent immigrants, except for the way Nikolai found his home in the army. He first tried to join the paratroopers, Kutsik said, and when he failed, he chose a unit in which he could see action. Older than most other recruits, who are drafted at 18 in Israel, Sergeant Rappaport was known as a quiet soldier who was always ready to do more. "It didn't matter how many hours he worked during the day, or how many hours he spent on guard duty," said his platoon commander, Lt. Assaf Rosenfeld, "or even if his comrades did less. He never complained. I heard that he is not going to be buried in Israel. In my opinion, this is not what he would have wanted, if he could have asked." ------------------------------------------------------- From root Thu Feb 19 22:32:09 1998 >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Feb 19 22:32:04 1998 Return-Path: Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu by psi.ece.jhu.edu with SMTP; Thu, 19 Feb 1998 22:32:02 -0500 Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA12900; Thu, 19 Feb 98 19:33:44 -0500 Message-Id: <9802200033.AA12900@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Wed, 11 Feb 98 13:27:47 +0100 From: tolja@maya.geo.uu.se (Anatoli Belonoshko) To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: shtamp v zagranpassport Status: OR --------------------------------------------------------------------- This is INFO-RUSS broadcast (1200+ subscribers).

Now a rigorous Mathematical Proof that explains why this is true: Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power. Postulate 2: Time is Money As every engineer knows, Work --------- = Power Time Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have Work --------- = Knowledge Money Solving for Money, we get: Work ---------------- = Money Knowledge Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity regardless of the Work done.

You asked if we are treating babies in danger of blindness. I passed your E-Mail message on to Dr. Mary Elizabeth Hartnett who replied: "We definitely treat a great deal of retinopathy of prematurity here and have a great deal of experience with this condition. The estimated probability of a positive result depends on the severity of the condition. This could range from 20% to 80%. The cost of the treatment would vary widely. It depends upon if an examination under anesthesia needs to be or if there were to be a scleral buckle done or a closed vitrectomy or an open sky vitrectomy." The doctor would need to know more about the case so we could estimate the costs. The name of the doctor is Dr. Mary Elizabeth Hartnett, Schepens Retina Associates, 100 Charles River Plaza, Suite 201, Boston, MA 02114. The phone is 617 523-7800. fax is 617 227-0996.

The assessment of high-school students was based on three tests: (i) general mathematics and science literacy (basic algebra, estimation, life science, physics, etc.), (ii) advanced mathematics (calculus and precalculus), and (iii) advanced physics. Traditionally, Russia was strong in the advanced tests: second place (after France) out of 16 in advanced math, and third place (after Norway and Sweden) in advanced physics. That's cool. However, in general math and science literacy Russia scored 16 out of 21, significantly below average (but still above the USA!). By the way, the high score in advanced physics should be taken cautiosly, for only 20% of advanced physics students could answer correctly a simple question about forces acting on a body (see the article in Science for the example). Below, I retyped the table from the article (Asia did not participated). MATH AND SCIENCE LITERACY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Country Mean score ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ---------------------------------------- Netherlands 559 Significantly Sweden 555 above Iceland 541 Norway 536 Switzerland 531 Denmark 528 Canada 526 New Zealand 525 Austria 519 ------------------------------------------ Australia 525* Average Slovenia 514 France 505 Germany 496 Czech Republic 476** ------------------------------------------ Hungary 477 Significantly Russian Fed. 476 below Italy 475 USA 471 Lithuania 465 Cyprus 447 South Africa 352 ------------------------------------------ AVERAGE 500 ------------------------------------------ There must be mistakes in the table.

Yeltsin told outgoing Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin to prepare for presidential elections in 2000, and appointed Fuel and Energy Minister Sergei Kirienko as his acting prime minister. The appointment of a prime minister must be approved by the opposition-dominated lower house of parliament, the State Duma. The Duma has bitterly opposed Yeltsin's economic policies and approval of a new prime minister might be difficult. Kremlin spokesman Sergei Yastrzhembsky said Kirienko had also been named a first deputy prime minister. Yeltsin, looking calm and speaking strongly and clearly in a televised announcement, criticized the old Cabinet for wasting time on political infighting. "The country needs a new team," he said. And Chernomyrdin, in answer to a question at a news conference, said, "There is no crisis. There is no crisis." Stunning announcement The announcement that Yeltsin had dismissed Chernomyrdin and most of the Cabinet stunned the country. It came just weeks after Yeltsin had expressed confidence in his top officials, saying they would stay in office for the rest of his term. Kremlin says Russian international policy unchanged Chernomyrdin: 'no need to panic' Text of Yeltsin's decree Russian acting PM Kiriyenko seen as technocrat What Russian constitution says about sacking government Russian foreign policy unchanged, summit on List of Russian cabinet sacked on Monday -------------------- Yeltsin said he wanted to ensure that economic reforms he started would continue and that a reformer would win presidential elections in 2000, when his second term expires. By law, Yeltsin cannot run for a third term. Yeltsin then said he wanted Chernomyrdin to focus on preparing for Chernomyrdin at Monday's the elections -- but news conference stopped short of saying the former premier would be his preferred candidate. "Resignation of the government does not mean the change in the course of our politics. This is an effort to render more energy and efficiency to economic reforms, to give them an additional impetus, a new impulse," he said. While the Cabinet had done well in some areas, Yeltsin said, it had failed to persuade ordinary Russians that market reforms would improve their lives. Many Russians, deeply unhappy about falling living standards since the 1991 Soviet collapse and unpaid wages and pensions, blame reforms for the country's economic woes. Communists and other opposition groups have strong popular support and want to turn back many market reforms. Chernomyrdin had been a loyal premier who served more than five years as scores of other Cabinet officials had come and gone. He was regarded as the government's greatest survivor. Chubais says he will stay on Yeltsin 'team'. In his three terse announcements, Yeltsin specifically dismissed First Deputy Prime Minister Anatoly Chubais, the government's chief economic reformer, and Interior Minister Anatoly Kulikov, who heads Russia's internal security forces. Chubais, removed on Monday as first deputy prime minister, said he and President Boris Yeltsin had agreed he will stay in the president's team but did not say in what role, Interfax news agency reported. "We agreed that I will remain in his team, in whatever capacity or wherever I work," Interfax quoted Chubais as saying. Other Cabinet members, while also fired, were ordered to stay in their posts until permanent replacements were named. The former Cabinet held an extraordinary meeting in the Russian White House Monday. The announcement came just three days before a major summit in Moscow that will include Yeltsin, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and French President Jacques Chirac. To remove the government on the eve of an important summit suggested that Yeltsin felt there was an emergency. Yeltsin has long been known for unexpected, impulsive actions that in the past were sometimes attributed to his alleged heavy drinking. Following heart surgery in November 1996, doctors say the president has moderated his habits. It was not known if Yeltsin might reappoint some of the dismissed ministers to their old or new posts. Among those dismissed were the key architects of the government's reform program: Chubais and fellow First Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov. Stock exchange dived on word of dismissals Nemtsov, who has been widely touted as a future prime minister or presidential candidate, was scheduled to meet with Yeltsin later Monday. "What are we going to do now? We are going to form a new government," Nemtsov said after the dismissals were announced. There was no apparent explanation for the dismissal of the interior minister, Kulikov, a long-time Yeltsin loyalist who commands the country's police and paramilitary internal security The dismissals of Chernomyrdin and his top aides were expected to shake the confidence of foreign investors and aid donors, who have been playing a major role in supporting the struggling Russian economy. The Moscow Stock Exchange dived 10 percent on word of the dismissals. White House spokesman Mike McCurry said the United States was caught by surprise by the announcement. "I don't believe we had any indication it was going to happen," McCurry said from Ghana, where President Clinton arrived Monday on his tour of Africa. The shakeup comes when the economy is already in deep trouble because of the fallout of the Asian economic crisis and persistent internal problems, It also comes amid concerns over Yeltsin's health. He was ill last week with what officials said was a respiratory illness.

Hi: I'm looking for anybody in the USA or Canada who is involved in selling and distributing new fiction and poetry Russian language books published in the USA. Ideally the books should be distributed and sold not only in US, but in Russia as well as the countries with significant Russian language readership, such as Israel and Canada. Am also interested to hear from or about professional publishers and printers who work with so-called short run books (250 - 2000 copies). It is not an invitation to start some new business. I myself need assistance in selling my new book which is ready for printing. Four years ago I did publish a book of poetry, prose and art. I'm not the author and consequently feel free to say that the book happened to be a very great success by its content as well as by the typographic and artistic quality of the jacket, cover, color and half-tone illustrations. This book was highly praised and reviewed in press and radio in the USA, Russia, Israel and France. Also, I feel free to say that I made a lot of mistakes and snafus while trying to distribute this book on my own. As a result I still have about 40 copies, sitting in the cartons in my garage. At present I have another book ready for printing. This time I do not want to repeat the mistakes I did. I would like to rely on somebody who knows the ins and outs of selling those Russian books which were published outside of Russia, especially in the USA. I would highly appreciate receiving any relevant information and direct advice and help on this matter.

In January, 1997, cellist and composer Boris Rayskin organized the 11-day Sergey Kuryokhin International Interdisciplinary Festival (SKIIFestival) in New York City dedicated to the memory of Sergey Kuryokhin. Tragically, Boris's life ended soon after the festival. SKIF2 is dedicated in his memory. SKIF2 will once again bring together many artists with whom Kuryokhin collaborated, as well those close to his creative spirit, to perform in this eclectic musical celebration. The festival will showcase the most cutting edge avant-garde, jazz, and experimental rock musicians from Russia, the United States and Europe including: "Silver Apples", "Tequila Jazz", "Kolibri", Rashied Ali, Marilyn Crispell, "Tri-O", Vladimir Tarasov, Sakari Luoma, Yudanov and Katz, David Soldier, "White Out", Borah Bergman, Cyro Baptista, "Vershki da Koreshki", "The Slackers", Volkov-Trio, Spectre and Sensational, Ned Rothenberg, Anatole Gerasimov, Aleksey Khvostenko, William Hooker, DJ-Olive + WE, Peter Brotzman and special guest artist Chico Freeman and many more. Daniel Rayskin, Boris's Brother will perform a special piece dedicated to his late brother. "SKIF2", will be held at the best venues of New York City: THE COOLER, CAMI HALL, MERKIN HALL, and the ELBOW ROOM. The festival will be an opportunity for further collaboration between Russian, European and American performers who will share their music with New York audiences. SKIF2 is produced by Bliss Records in Association with The Russian-American Cultural Forum. Artistic Direction for the festival is provided by Seva Gakkel, chairman of the Board of The Sergey Kuryokhin Foundation, St. Petersburg, Russia, and Anatole Gerasimov.

I live in Minneapolis , MN, and it is not that close to Seattle. I tried then to re-assign my daughter from my wife's passport into mine and again was told that for any passport-related matters I have to come to the Consulate in person. I know that strange behavior of officials has no limits, but could never imagine that it can reach such levels. Does anyone have any expertize or suggestions? I remember a year or two ago someone from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia was mailing info on some passport-visa related matters. Are you still on the network and could you explain what is going on to us?? We are Russian citizens and permanent residents of US (green card holders). I will share all the useful information I'll get through my own mailing(s) (not via info-russ) to anyone interested. Thank you all and Happy Easter!

It is a great place to be for high school juniors and sophomores. A description of the program follows, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me, Sergei Vassilvitskii Sergei@juno.com ~~~~~~~~~~~ Join other high school juniors and seniors in determining orbits of minor planets, employing the same mathematical and physical principles that NASA and JPL scientists use for space navigation and for predicting the orbits of near-Earth asteroids At The Thacher School, Ojai, California June 29 - August 8, 1998 You can join the select group of up to three dozen high school students who have been chosen nationwide since 1959 to study astronomy and space science at The Thacher School. Located 80 miles north of Los Angeles and 20 miles inland from Santa Barbara, the rural Ojai Valley's dark skies provide excellent conditions for making observations with a telescope--a principle feature of the Program. You will get in-depth experience with advanced topics in the physical sciences, mathematics, and computer science through a combination of daily classes, guest speakers, field trips, and research work. Unlike many summer programs, you will not be just and intern or someone's lab assistant for a part of a project. You and your teammates will chose an asteroid to observe. Your team will operate a professional research-grade telescope to take pictures of the sky on glass plates; develop the photographs; take precision measurements from the plates to plot the changing position of your asteroid relative to known stars; and with those results and the celestial mechanics learned in the classroom, write a computer program to determine the size, shape, and orientation of your asteroid's orbit around the sun. You will have carried out from start to finish an original, hands-on research, results of which are submitted to the Minor Planet Center at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. And along the way, you will enjoy activities such as hiking, swimming, beach volleyball, tennis, and soccer--and maybe a little sleep from time to time. No academic credit is given, nor are formal grades issued; this is purely an enrichment program for the highly motivated student who enjoys co-operative rather than competitive learning. Applicants must have completed the sophomore or junior (but not the senior) year in high school. They must have the equivalent of three years of mathematics (pre-calculus preferred, but not required) and one year of laboratory science (physics preferred, but not required). They will submit an application, short essay, two teacher recommendations, and an official transcript which shows scores received on ACT, PSAT, SAT, and AP exams, if available. (However, taking these exams is NOT required for admission.) Financial aid and travel grants are available for applicants with demonstrated need. NO APPLICANT WILL BE DENIED ADMISSION FOR FINANCIAL REASONS--COST CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD NOT BE A FACTOR IN DETERMINING WHETHER A STUDENT SHOULD APPLY. Each year about 40% of the participants receive some sort of financial assistance. Consideration of applications will begin on April 18, 1998; after that, admission will be done on a rolling basis, with the Program usually being filled by the middle or end of May.

Traffic stopped, motorists stood by their cars and pedestrians froze in their tracks as the sirens sounded at 10 a.m. to mourn the six million Jewish victims of Adolf Hitler's "Final Solution." At the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led thousands of Jews into the heart of darkness on a grim "March of the Living" to remember the horror of the Nazi genocide. "Here, right here, they tore the babies from their mothers' arms and threw them into the ovens. You can almost hear the mothers' cries rising from the ground and you can feel the paralyzing fear of the children," Netanyahu said in Hebrew at the camp where 1.5 million people, mostly Jews, died. The Israeli leader began his speech by wrapping himself in a Jewish prayer shawl and reciting, "Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One" -- a reaffirmation of faith which Jews chant when in mortal danger. "Despite everything and after everything, in the war between the Nazi evil and the Jewish people -- we won," said Netanyahu, flanked by an Israeli military honor guard. But the echoes of anti-Semitism could still be heard. In Greece, makeshift gas canister bombs exploded at the office of the Athens Jewish Council, causing damage but no casualties. Other voices rang out in Berlin, once the hub of Jewish life in Germany. The city marked the remembrance day by reading aloud the names of its 55,000 Jewish victims of the Nazis. At Yad Vashem, Israel's memorial to the Holocaust victims, and in parliament Israeli leaders, rabbis and public officials read a roll call of names of relatives slaughtered by the Nazis. Flags throughout Israel, which marks its 50th anniversary next Thursday, were at half mast and restaurants and all places of entertainment were closed. "We could not believe it then: we find it hard to believe now," Auschwitz survivor and Nobel Peace laureate Elie Wiesel wrote in the Jerusalem Post newspaper. "After Auschwitz, our hope itself is filled with anguish." In East Jerusalem, annexed by Israel after its capture in the 1967 Middle East War, Palestinians went about their business as normal, pausing only to watch Israeli policemen who stood with their heads bowed while the sirens wailed. "This has to do with Jews. It has nothing to do with us whether they live or die. It is not important for us," said Hemeid al-Bakry, a 29-year-old worker at a cafeteria on Salah El-Din Street, one of the busiest thoroughfares. This year's Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day in Israel honors survivors of the genocide who made their way to what was then British-mandated Palestine after 1945 to work and fight for the creation of the state in 1948. Netanyahu acknowledged in a speech at the start of the 24-hour observance Wednesday night that the enormity of their ordeal and their contribution to Israel's birth had not been adequately recognized by Jews already living in then-Palestine. "This is the proper moment to express to them the gratitude of the entire nation," Netanyahu told the opening remembrance ceremony at Yad Vashem. Native-born Jews looked down on the European arrivals as weaklings who went willingly to their fate at the hands of the Nazis. They called the newcomers "sabon," or soap in Hebrew -- slang for "meek" and a horrific allusion to accounts, now disputed by some historians, that Nazis made soap out of the remains of Jews they killed in the gas chambers. "It was suspicion and contempt. They thought 'Who knows what this one has done to survive while the others died'," said Yossi Offer, who survived Auschwitz and Buchenwald to reach Palestine at the age of 17. One of six Holocaust survivors who were chosen to light memorial torches at Wednesday night's ceremony, he said he had completely repressed his Holocaust past for 20 years. "The fact is that we tried to hide as much as possible. Nobody was interested in our story," Offer, a retired lieutenant-colonel in the Israeli Air Force, told Reuters. "We felt like rejects and that is exactly what we didn't want to feel," he said.

Citing what they called the steadily deteriorating condition of Russia's nuclear command system, the study's authors laid out a scenario of a plausible accidental attack: a single Russian nuclear submarine launching its weapons against the United States. Nearly 7 million people would be killed instantly from the thermonuclear explosions in the eight cities researchers chose arbitrarily. They selected the submarine scenario because "the Russian general staff cannot continuously monitor the status of the crew and missiles." As the study's co-author Theodore Postol, now of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a former Navy weapons expert, told a Boston news conference: the Russians "have had a lot of trouble with their submarine force historically." Postol and the study's lead author, Dr. Lachlan Forrow of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, said authorities believe that a launch based on a false warning of a nuclear attack would be the most plausible scenario for an accidental attack. They noted that several false alarms had already occurred in both the United States and Russia. Each country maintains their nuclear arsenals on high alert, the researchers said. In prose similar to a thriller's, the scenario details an attack by a single Russian nuclear submarine, armed with 16 missiles carrying 48 100-kiloton nuclear warheads, launched against the continental United States from the Barents Sea. The missiles have a range of 5,150 miles. Researchers estimated 6.83 million people in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C., would be instantly killed by the thermonuclear blasts. "An attack such as the one we have described would not only cause more than 6 million immediate Americans' deaths in nuclear firestorms we have conservatively estimated, and not only cause the hundreds of thousands or millions of additional casualties as a result of radiation injuries, but plausibly trigger a U.S. nuclear response," Forrow said. "During a period when Russia is not even our adversary, this is politically, medically, and morally obscene," he said. The study is the first salvo in a campaign called Abolition 2000 that the Boston-based Physicians for Social Responsibility is helping to lead. "Abolition 2000 has a simple goal: a signed global agreement by the year 2000 committing the world to the permanent abolition of nuclear weapons within a specified time frame," Forrow said. He called on President Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin "to remove the nuclear weapons from high-alert status and remove from them the capacity to be rapidly launched." Forrow said a much larger group of researchers from around the world will gather in Geneva, Switzerland, Saturday. The group intends to present the first 13 million signatures collected on Abolition 2000 petitions in connection with the 1998 U.N. Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty conference.

Any idea of what else is out there to try? Thanks a lot in advance for your attention.

("involved in ... abuses"???:-):-) I think, all in all,the author is really nice and we've got high mark:-). My best, -- Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator sasha@super.ece.jhu.edu my www site address: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan INFO-RUSS server: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/inforuss.html =================================================================== May 5, 1998 Eurobytes -- publication by CyberTimes ("New York Times on teh Web") http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/tech/indexcyber.html By MARINA LAKHMAN Russian Immigrants Stay Close to Home on Net MOSCOW - While it is no secret that the Internet is booming in Russia -- with a user growth of about 100% each year -- what many don't know is that some of the Russian Web's most popular sites are created thousands of miles from the borders of the Russian Federation. Many of the sites originate from the United States, where large numbers of Russians have been migrating for decades. And those immigrants are using the Internet to help people remain close to the homeland. A quick glance at the Rambler 100, a daily counter of the most visited Russian sites, may lead a surfer who is looking to check out the Russian Web to Anecdotes from Russia, which receives an average of 19,000 to 20,000 hits a day and has consistently held the No. 1 slot on the counter since it was launched in March 1997 Anecdotes from Russia became the first Russian Internet daily when it was launched in November 1995. The site, which features new jokes every day and allows surfers to vote for their favorite jokes as well as join discussions and share their own jokes, is the brainchild of Dima Verner, an assistant professor of astrophysics at the University of Kentucky. Verner began the site as a hobby, since he, like most Russians, loves humor. In Soviet times, jokes about the Communist party were the most popular. In the post-Soviet era they have been replaced by jokes about wealthy New Russians. Verner's site is a mix of the old and the new, with jokes that poke fun at the former Soviet Union's ethnic minorities, its turbulent politics and, of course, New Russians For Verner life outside of Russia was simply predicated by his work in astrophysics. He first left the country in 1990, spent two years in Germany, followed by two years in Holland and now four years in the United States. Next he is headed for Canada, but his Web site helps him to remain close to home all the time. "Although I never tried to hide the fact that I currently live outside of Russia, most of my readers do not know about that," said Verner, whose parents and most friends live in Russia. "For me, the Internet not only helps me to keep in touch with Russia but allows me to be an active part of Russian life." When people in Russia were just beginning to get used to the concept of the Internet and its terminology, "the Web" was already a household term in the United States and an essential part of life in academia. Already comfortable with its applications, Russians in the United States began utilizing their collective knowledge to spur the growth of the still infantile Internet in Russia. Chertovy Kulichki, the first Russian entertainment server, was created in 1996 by Valera Kolpakov and Leo Umantsev to provide Web space and technical support for Russian Internet projects in order to develop and promote Russian Internet culture. Kolapakov, who is now 32, left Russia six years ago and is presently completing a DDS program at the University of Michigan Medical Center. Umatsev, 23, is a doctoral candidate at Stanford University. Despite the name -- a Russian idiom for a place so remote it is said to be at the world's end -- surfers quickly found their way to Chertovy Kulichki and it is currently the biggest entertainment center of the Russian Web and is regularly among Rambler's top five most popular sites. The server provides information in the fields of Russian art, literature, music, photography, movies, humor and games and includes online magazines and libraries. Like Anecdotes from Russia, which was part of Kulichki from November 1996 to May 1997, the site offers interaction through online press conferences with Russian political party leaders, online law services, virtual postcards, virtual newspapers, lotteries, auctions, literature and beauty contests and interactive games. "I am very optimistic about the future of the project," Kolpakov said. "One of our missions is to inform thousands of Kulichki's visitors about ongoing events on the Russian Internet and develop the server as a window to Russian Internet resources." While Anecdotes from Russia and Chertovy Kulichki are all-Russian sites whose audience is primarily in Russia, several immigrants who once called Russia home have created Web sites and e-mail lists as a way of keeping the immigrant community in touch with each other and life in Russia. Vadim Maslov, who left Russia in 1992 and got a job thanks to his e-mail exchanges with members of the American academic community while completing his Ph.D. in computer science in Moscow, created SovInform Bureau in 1992 to repay the debt. Created for an English-speaking audience, primarily because when it was created Russification on the Web was still unknown, SovInform Bureau offers humor; travel, visa and immigration information; Soviet and Russian culture, and politics and serves as a gateway for anyone who wants to know where to go on the Russian Web. While some Russian immigrants were motivated by the desire to help the Russian Web get off the ground, Alexander Kaplan saw the growth of Internet technologies as a means for helping connect Russian immigrants all over the world. Now a professor at Johns Hopkins University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Baltimore, whose life as a dissident in the Soviet Union led him to emigrate in 1979, the 59-year-old Kaplan created the Info-Russ e-mail list in 1991 with 40 e-mail addresses. Today the network is made up of about 1,200 addresses and aims to link Russian-speaking people all over the world to each other. Info-Russ has also gotten involved in human rights abuses in the former Soviet Union, particularly the Russian war in Chechnya. Info-Russ sent a letter of concern, signed by 240 subscribers, over the war in Chechnya to President Clinton and other government representatives in January of 1995. For Kaplan, the major objective of the project was help, which is evident from the postings. In a recent posting, a laser physicist, Yelena Isyanova, was seeking advice on how to help a former colleague in Siberia get medical help for her son who has been diagnosed with a possibly fatal condition. "Info-Russ was organized by me mostly for my fellow emigres, who went through the same predicaments when emigrating as I did," said Kaplan, who sees the e-mail list as a way of paying back everyone who helped him along the way.

He wants to hire two employees who will also be given large ownership interests in the company: The first must have a Ph.D. in chemistry and at least two years experience in drug discovery research in the United States or Western Europe. The second must have an MD and at least two years experience directly managing clinical drug trials in the United States or Western Europe, preferably for a CRO (contract research organization). Both must be willing to move to Russia for 5 to 7 years. At the end of that 5-7 year period, the company will either be sold or go public. The stock held by each of the two emplyees should be very valuable at that time. The pre- marketing effort shows that both pharmaceutical and biotech companies are very interested in doing business with this company. Both must speak fluent English and Russian.

Since the topic seems to be of (more or less) general interest, I present a summary (actually I've got a few requests to do so). Basically, there are two main companies in this business: Diplomat America (DA) and HealthCare America (HCA). You have to deal with various intermediary insurance companies: For DA: www.travelmedicalinsurance.com/america www.aifs.org/no_java/US/aifscisi/cisiusvs.htm www.armchair.com/insure/dipam.htm www.fairwayhealth.com For HCA: www.champion-ins.com Benefits and premiums are similar for DA and HCA albeit the HCA premiums are sligtly cheaper and HCA terms look more flexible (at least, they fit my needs better and I've bought a coverage from HCA). Since these premiums and benefits "are subject of change", I won't discuss them here (anyway, this posting is not to promote or advertize any of them), and suggest that you check the web sites which addresses are given above. A caveat: nobody from the people who responded to me, had to use either DA or HCA coverage (let me wish the same to you.). Therefore, there are no data available how well it works.

My mother, Elena Vinogradova was born in Harbin in 1924. She was cared for by her Mother and Grandmother, who both went by the name of Alexandra. In 1925 they moved to Shanghai where in about 1926, Ariadne was born, a sister to Elena. They were living in Lang Terrace, off Ave. Joffre in the French Concession. Within a short time their mother weakened and died of TB. After a struggle the Grandmother had to relinquish the children, but there was no-one who wanted two little girls. My mother was looked after by a Englishman Dick Parry and his Russian wife Zoya. After Japanese internment and some time in the Phillipines, they arrived in Australia. Ariadne, on the other hand was apparently taken in by a retired US naval man who had a Russian wife and children. Mum's only contact from Ariadne was a signed photograph of Ariadne which she recieved when she was about 12yo.It is thought that Ariadne and her new family returned to America, possibly to California. The Russian `grapevine' rumoured that she worked in a legal office. By now, with adoption, possible anglicisation of her christian name and marriage, Ariadne is well hidden. The only way of tracing her is through this story. I wonder if any of your readers have heard of her?

"This concerns me greatly," Ambassador Daniel Speckhard told Reuters outside the gate with his wife and three young children. "If the government wants to lock us out, we will have to leave the country." The Belarussian government in April warned diplomats from 22 countries, including Russia, France, Italy, Ukraine, India and Germany, that they would have to leave the residential complex known as Drozdy because it needed repairs. At a news conference earlier Monday, Speckhard said: "If diplomats in the Drozdy residences are expelled, this will be the first incident of its kind after the end of the Cold War. We hope that (Belarussian President) Alexander Lukashenko ... will correct this situation in time." But as he was speaking, the welding party was closing the gates to the residences, which are supposed to enjoy diplomatic immunity. He and his family held up the American flag outside the gates. Lukashenko, condemned by Western governments for his authoritarian-style government in the republic, which neighbors Poland and Russia, is no stranger to controversy. He has repeatedly lashed out at Western governments, accusing them of seeking to isolate the republic he heads, with a population of 10 million. A former collective farm manager, Lukashenko brooks no opposition and has meted out beatings and detentions to his opponents. He ordered last week that insulting him was a criminal offence liable for a five-year jail term. Belarussian officials declined to comment on the incident at Drozdy, where Lukashenko also maintains a residence. But a senior Belarussian official who declined to be named told Reuters: "Belarus doesn't need this scandal. But it cannot be that state president Lukashenko is neighbors with the American ambassador." He said Lukashenko's advisors were pleading with him to prevent an international incident and restore the residence to the angry diplomats. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- From root Sun Jun 14 13:49:12 1998 >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sun Jun 14 13:49:12 1998 Return-Path: Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu by psi.ece.jhu.edu with SMTP; Sun, 14 Jun 1998 13:49:11 -0400 Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA26268; Sun, 14 Jun 98 12:18:53 -0400 Message-Id: <9806141618.AA26268@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu From: Boris Zuckerman To: "INFO-RUSS@smarty.ece.jhu.edu" Subject: INFO-RUSS: will capitalism alone do the job?

The military threat has been downgraded, but the nation's struggle to adopt market mechanisms challenges our understanding of capitalism. Particularly confounding many Western ideologues is that the weakness of the Russian state itself poses the largest obstacle to the development of capitalism in Russia. It's the liquidity crisis that demands immediate attention. The Russian government relies on short-term financing: It has roughly the equivalent of $70 billion in outstanding T-bills that mature over the next 12 months. This means the government must roll over on average about $5 billion to $6 billion a month. Foreign ownership of about $20 billion of those T-bills exceeds Russian reserves of $14 billion to $15 billion, of which roughly a third is gold. Russian banks are believed to have borrowed at least $15 billion from foreigners in short-term obligations. As the market has come to appreciate the significance of these imbalances in light of the East Asian crisis, it has demanded a higher premium to lend money to the Russian government. This in turn exacerbates the Russian government's fiscal straits. Russian data placed last year's budget deficit at 6.1% of gross domestic product, while the International Monetary Fund says 6.8%. The government's target this year is 5.1%. In the first quarter, the deficit was on track at 4.6%. However, Russia's poor record on meeting established fiscal targets has prompted a freezing of IMF disbursements from a loan program agreed in 1995. In late May, Standard & Poor's placed Russia's BB-minus rating on foreign currency borrowings on negative credit watch. Moody's downgraded that debt one notch to B1. There is risk on both the expenditure and revenue side of the ledger. It has not been demonstrated that the government can truly control spending. The fiscal deficit target this year assumes average T-bill yields of 25%, compared with the 75% high hit last week. Debt servicing is forecast to absorb a full quarter of this year's budget and the higher interest rates will increase this share. Russia inherited $130 billion of foreign debt from the Soviet Union. The debt has been restructured in a way that has limited debt servicing payments to about $7 billion a year, but after 2002 payments will increase. The revenue side is hampered by a number of factors. Tax revenues are around 10% of GDP (not counting the underground economy), compared to closer to 30% in the U.S. and around 45% in Europe. In part this reflects the failure to establish the legitimacy of the state in the post-Soviet Union period. Some of this may be a residual of the communist days, but the privatization program, which benefited the connected, undermined the government's credibility. The decline in commodity prices, especially oil, aggravates Russia bind. Oil is Russia's main export. The price of Brent crude has fallen from $25 a barrel 18 months ago to $14-$15 now. Russian oil trades at about a $1.30 discount to Brent. This squeezes Russian oil companies, which pay much of the national tax. It also undermines the government's efforts to get a good price in the continued privatization of state oil assets. The sale of Rosneft, among the largest oil companies yet to be privatized, has been pushed back to next month after what a Financial Times reporter called a "buyers' strike" at the end of May. Reports suggest the government may have to lower its expectations on that sale from $2.1 billion to maybe $1.5 billion. The government plans on selling its stakes in 10 major companies this year still. Privatization and a strong ruble are the cornerstones of the government's economic policies, which the U.S. and the IMF endorse. In order to stabilize the ruble, Russia raised overnight rates to 150% at the peak of the recent scare. In real terms, Jeffrey Sachs estimates that the ruble has appreciated by about a third over three years. That strength has helped bring inflation down to 8% from over 800% five years ago. The abandonment of the strong ruble policy is unlikely without a sustained fight. Devaluation would substantially raise debt servicing costs. Weak financial institutions will fail or go the way of Tokobank, which was taken over by the central bank last month. A couple of years ago, Tokobank was considered the model of reform. Devaluation would also discredit the reform movement in Russia, which could produce unfavorable outcomes in next year's parliamentary elections or the presidential contest in 2000. Most of all, a devaluation would hurt global investors who bought local currency debt or Russian equities. The cost of defending the strong-ruble policy will be great. Increasingly higher interest rates will be needed to compensate lenders. Debt servicing will consume a rising share of what Russia produces. Russian national resources -- oil and gold, for example -- will be sold for a song to foreign interests with long-term time horizons. The Russian people will grow less tolerant as Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic enjoy improved economic conditions. Privatization does not mean capitalism has been successfully grafted. Currency stabilization in itself is not sufficient to encourage investment. The rise of organized and unorganized crime in Russia speaks to the absence of a sufficient legal framework to protect the property rights and enforce contracts. The state is too weak to even guarantee personal security: Tax collectors have been killed, business executives kidnapped. The simple but profound truth about capitalism is that a strong and credible state is needed. Liberty needs a state at the bare minimum to protect property, the right to contract and personal security. East Asia, including Japan, discovered that the regulation and supervision of the financial markets are also important state activities. The Russian state has been so thoroughly discredited and emasculated that it cannot fulfill even these basic functions. Until the Russian state is stronger and the rule of law guaranteed, capitalism will not take root.

If I may, I would like to post the info that I have collected. Some of the Web sites are pretty sophisticated (and almost as nice looking and professionally made as Amazon, Borders and Barnes&Noble), and some are made by amateurs who obviously didn't want to spend any time and/or money. I have not ordered anything from any of the below mentioned sites so far, but I have a lot of experience in dealing with Amazon.COM. I noticed three major drawbacks in most Russian sites. a) Many of those sites do not use secure server. Some suggest you use e-mail or a long distance number to order, some give you a nonsecure form. b) The lists of books are very limited. I suppose that's because the infrastructure, computerized catalogs and ordering from Russian suppliers are poorly developed if at all. Compared with U.S. giants that carry millions of books, the assortment in Russian Web stores is very sporadic and incomplete, with many major authors often missing, or just being represented by one or two books. c) The ways of searching through the books are very limited indeed. Seems that the site creators were using lists, which had been manually typed up, instead of databases. Most of them didn't bother to categorize the books/CDs, nor to type a synopsis or keywords for those products. All in all, I wish Amazon, Borders or B&N were in the business of selling Russian intellectual merchandize. Opinions are all mine. Here is the list of sites that I came up with: BOOKS: http://www.eastview.com/ - This one has a pretty good search engine (and a database?), and it does seem to allow browsing books by categories. However, when giving a list of books it doesn't alphabetize them by author or title. At least some classification doesn't make sense (Maiakovskii is not classified as a poet, for instance), and Russian Cyrillic encodings are not supported at all. The black-red user interface looks like an XXX site. The prices seem to be way up there, too. http://www.jps.net/globus/globus.htm - These guys don't have any search engine, they have a catalogue, which isn't particularly rich. Besides an ordinary selection, they carry a lot of old books, Christian books and books published outside of the former USSR. You cannot order online, and they haven't responded to my e-mail yet. Lists of books are in PDF format (why?) and you have to download their fonts, too. http://www.socium.com/ - This one seems to be going somewhere, but they don't have pretty much anything out in the Web site just yet. Maybe they will build up further on. I liked being able to browse by Alphabet, but they don't have any search, nor category browsing. Will sell CDs, too. When? I think they are the only ones planning to use a secure server when they have inventory to sell. http://www.st-p.com/home.html - This is a pretty good site. The selection is rather poor, but it's relatively easy to navigate. They don't have any search, only browsing by categories. The prices are mostly good, and I hear that their store (not the Web site) is having an all-out 50% sale right now. These guys have a little collection of CDs, without any order or classification. http://www.kamkin.com/ - This famous Russian language bookstore has the worst site of all of them. They don't have any catalogue, except certain topical ones. They were very prompt responding to my e-mail, though, and I already ordered some books from them, but over the phone. Like the two sites above, they also claim to sell CDs, but their selection is pitiful. http://books.ru/index.cgi - This is a site physically located in Russia, I guess. Looks very nice (they must have been the only ones who actually looked at some decent US samples!). You can browse and search. The only problem is that there isn't much to browse or search. Looks like they only sell about a hundred titles altogether. As a payment option for US customers they offer to send a check to some guy in MA, or to make a wire transfer to their account, then wait 2 to 6 weeks. I don't think so. CDs: http://www.inetcraft.com/rbc/default.asp - RBC Music. Great selection, high prices. Free shipping. The server is not secure. But this is the best selection by far! Some CDs have lists of songs, and even some audio clips to listen to. http://www.musicrussia.com/ - A pretty good selection, and better prices the RBC. The site was OK, but no secure server either. CDs by categories, most have lists of songs. http://www.abinet.com/~greda/favorite/listlat.htm - They sell many things, including books and CDs, but there is only a catalogue of CDs. No categories, just a big list of CDs. I didn't find any Okudzhava, nor Ivasi, but I don't think I would be ordering from them anyway. Hope that's of any use. Vlad Boroda boroda@camber.com
