A new method for detection of quality of anti-aging foodstuff is proposed from a position of the supramolecular thermodynamics and known «rules of chemistry». The method is based on the assertion that in order to determine the gerontological (antiaging) quality of foodstuff is enough to calculate the specific Gibbs function of the formation in lipid fraction of products. This substantiates that this value could describe the product as a whole. The proposed general approach is the basis for the new method in assessment of gerontological value of food, based on the scale of the average temperature melting lipid fractions of natural foodstuff. A simplified method for determining the gerontological quality of products includes an assessment of this quality in balls in accordance with the scale proposed by the author.
The authors has developed and tested a new medical technology of acupuncture injection of 100% extract of human placenta. New data about hepatoprotective and reparation influence under treatment of steato-hepatitis of alcohol, metabolic and mixed etiology, cronic hepatitis and cirrhosis of any etiology have been received. Besides, some perspective results have been got, testifying to the potentialities of that method to gain heroprotective and antiaging effects. New approaches to integration of conventional and complementary medicine have been shown.
The object of great attention of public in different countries at the present time is quality of apiculture products which directly depends on environmental ecology. The authors show the results of their own in investigations and the analysis of literary data about radioactive materials of apiculture products. Bees\' role is demonstrated as a biological indicator of ecosystem condition.
Antiviral activity of antibodies to interferongamma in ultra-low doses was shown and investigated in the study. Anaferon and anaferon for children contain antibodies to interferon-gamma in ultralow doses and possess antiviral activity. Preclinical studies demonstrated the efficacy of antibodies to interferon-gamma in ultra-low doses in the treatment of influenza (including avian influenza) herpes virus that is comparable to standard reference drugs. Antiviral activity of these drugs was confirmed in clinical studies.
Leading ideas of Moscow International Declaration on Ecological Culture are marked out in the article, its role in all spheres of social development ecologization and in generation of new knowledge areas such as ecopedagogics, ecopsychology, ecological culturology, ecological design is shown. The critical analysis of modern views on sustainable development is given here.
The author considers the definition, essence and functions of ecological culture as the foundations of education for the sustainable development. The specific characteristics of contemporary ecological education are scrutinized and the main factors of correlation between ecological culture and education are revealed.
Author puts forward and substantiates the significance of biocosmological bases (in the light of classical aristotelism) for modern philosophy and science - in the first place for the development of «Russian universal functionalism». For this purpose he develops a classification of the principal types of essentialism and deduces the universal philosophical (metaphysical, gnoseological, axiological) principles of Russian philosophy and science. Further, basing on the BioCosmological conception, author represents the notion of «functionalist organ», which is intended to promote, firstly in respect to the development of the General theory of functional systems by P. K. Anokhin, — to the realization of the potentials of «Russian functionalism», in the perspective of universalization of scientific cognition of the processes of life on the Earth.
Problem of clearing up the reasons of variations of gravitational constant G, observed by many scientists of the world, is of great importance not only for fundamental physics and astrophysics, but also for geophysics. The article is devoted to experimental studying of reasons of variations of gravitational constant G and their possible connection with geological processes. For this purpose was created a new instrument — the detector ATROPATENA, which uninterruptedly registers the values of G simultaneously in two mutually perpendicular directions and the relative changes in time of gravity - g. It has been determined that the parameters of variations in time of G depend upon spatial orientation of Cavendish balance. Variations G before strong earthquakes are registered.
In this article the fundamental role of A. S. Pushkin in the formation of universality (as a particular world-openness and readiness for intercultural dialogues) in the Russian literature is revealed. It is shown that one of the ways of statement of universality is the transition from shakespearization to shakespearism, which took place in the Pushkin\'s creative work and was inherited by other great Russian writers.
Some prospects of application of nonlinear dynamic approach to the understandimg of consciousness and its cognitive functions are shown in the article. Such an approach answers the orientations of the modern nonclassical epistemology. Such properties of consciousness as its emergent, holistic, embodied, situative and enactive nature are considered. The model of autopoiesis, i.e. of self-production and structural coupling of cognitive mind and a medium of its activity, turns to be relevant.
The problem of literary text modelling is considered in the article. The author tries to combine lingvo cognitive, culturological, and cultural and anthropological aspects of the text analysis. He suggests meaning-oriented models as an alternative of structureoriented models of a text, as well as gives grounds for their use. These models can be made on the basis of the new direction of humanitarian research suggested by the author, namely culturological lingvo semiotics of the texts, which successively fulfils the principle «from the meaning towards the text». The author of the article gives the general classification of the continuous marks of literary texts, which in its turn follows and summarizes his previous publications in our magazine.
In the article a brief analytical review of the most significant and typical for the Western literary criticism of the boundary of the XX—XXI centuries studies that cover the representation of Russia in the European literary and social consciousness are presented, some approaches to the study of this problem field are revealed.
This paper is conceived as an effort to present a coherent exposition of the aesthetic views of the Russian Christian thinker Ivan V.Kireevsky. The foundation of this theory is the concept of an organic totality of life of both artist and spectator, in particular that of the unity of beauty and truth, as well as an organic concept of society, in which both artists and critics are laborers in the task of transforming the personal and common life into a truly believing totality. I.V.Kireevsky\'s mature aesthetic theory is opposed to the theory of abstract or «pure» art.
