Previously it was named Gosstandart of Russia. In 2004, Gosstandart of Russia was folded into the Russian Federation Ministry of Industry and Energy and became known as the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology, or Rostekhregulirovaniye (Ростехрегулирование). From June 2010 the short name became Rosstandart (Росстандарт). The new name reflects a new role the agency is supposed to play in the Russian government's effort to reduce barriers to trade and get the Russian economy more closely aligned with the global marketplace. Rosstandart recently worked with representatives from the public and private sectors to develop a national standards strategy for the Russian Federation. This document establishes a framework for moving towards the system that is based on voluntary consensus standards. Since the voluntary standards system in Russia is only beginning to emerge, Rosstandart continues its sponsorship and funding of the development of GOST R standards, the national standards of the Russian Federation. Among other responsibilities of the agency are representing the Russian Federation to international and regional standards organizations (such as the ISO, IEC, and EASC) and administering the GOST R certification program for products.

Д.Медведев.Заседание Комиссии по модернизации.20.01.10

Speech at Meeting of Presidential Commission for Modernisation and Technological Development of Russias Economy. January 20, 2010 Lipetsk Заседание Комиссии по модернизации и технологическому развитию, посвящённое проблемам технического регулирования. 20 января 2010 года Липецк PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Today, we are once again addressing a topic common to our meetings: that of technical regulations. I specifically wanted to devote one of the Commissions meetings to this issue. You know how important this topic is to the modernisation of our economy. After all, our technical regulations and standards are key instruments that ensure competitiveness and innovative appeal of our economy. We have discussed this issue many, many times and I had to give some rather harsh instructions which - as is often the case in our country - ultimately yielded certain results. I am referring to the legislation on technical regulations. Unfortunately, the law that was passed at the beginning of this decade, the one that has been in force, proved to be absolutely ineffective and we had to urgently amend it to meet the requirements of today. That has been done and I have signed such amendments into law. I hope that now the amended law will allow all of our colleagues present first and foremost, Cabinet members, the Ministry of Industry and Trade headed by Mr Khristenko, and the corresponding agency [Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology] to make relevant decisions ensuring their proper quality, quantity and swiftness. This is, perhaps, most important. First, I am hereby instructing the Cabinet to intensify efforts in this area and I would like for them to report back to me on what has been done and the number of documents passed. I would like the report fairly soon lets say, in two months. The second issue on which we need a decision is the overall quantity of technical regulations. The numbers are increasing constantly we already discussed this today with our colleagues. Initially, some 40 to 50 regulations were mentioned, then another higher figure appeared, and finally I was told that altogether about 400 technical regulations are required. Lets determine exactly how many of these regulations we really need. I understand that to the people developing such regulations, this is their business and operation, but for the other business entities these regulations determine their ability to succeed. That is why I would like to see a report on how many technical regulations we actually need to finalise the entire regulation process. We shouldnt get caught up in details as, after all, technical regulations may be offered for any operation or item whatsoever. Instead, integrated regulations should be drafted and approved by the Ministry [of Industry and Trade] and the corresponding Agency [for Technical Regulation and Metrology], just as we had agreed. This is highly important. Third, we must adhere to the same principles being followed today by other countries. We cannot refute the experience accumulated by developed economies in recent decades. As far back as 1985, the European Union implemented the so-called New Approach principles. And since the beginning of this decade, there have been national standardisation strategies introduced in the United States, UK, Germany, and France. We in Russia spent all of those years apart from these international trends, living on some kind of isolated island and never letting anyone near us. We need to analyse the applicability of such standards for us, especially since this was outlined in the Presidential Address [to the Federal Assembly] and in the law amending the current legislation on technical regulations. Business community is genuinely concerned with these processes as its members are involved in manufacturing and selling high-tech products and competing on their markets. Thus, I believe that our responsible business community should participate in developing the corresponding national standards. This is absolutely vital. Businesses expenditures for this work in standardisation could well be classified as goods and services production costs. We should consider such an option and pass respective financial statutes. After all, standardisation should lower costs, which is a direct benefit to our businesses. http://www.kremlin.ru

The central agency for science and technology in Brazil is the Ministry of Science and Technology, which includes the CNPq and Finep. This ministry also has direct supervision over the National Institute for Space Research (Portuguese: Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais — INPE), the National Institute of Amazonian Research (Portuguese: Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia — INPA), and the National Institute of Technology (Brazil) (Portuguese: Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia — INT). The ministry is also responsible for the Secretariat for Computer and Automation Policy (Portuguese: Secretaria de Política de Informática e Automação — SPIA), which is the successor of the SEI. The Ministry of Science and Technology, which the Sarney government created in March 1985, was headed initially by a person associated with the nationalist ideologies of the past. Although the new minister was able to raise the budget for the science and technology sector, he remained isolated within the government and had no influence on policy making for the economy. With the new ministry, the science and technology agencies increased in size but lost some of their former independence and flexibility, and they became more susceptible to patronage politics. Most of the resources of the CNPq were channeled to fellowship programs procedures for quality control and no mechanisms to make the fellows active in the country's science and technology institutions. New groups competed for resources and control of the country's agencies of science, technology, and higher education. These groups included political parties, unionized university professors and employees, scientific societies, and special interest groups within the scientific and technological community. The SBPC (Brazilian Society for Scientific Development) shed its image as a semi-autonomous association of scientists to become an active lobbyist for more public resources and the protection of national technology from international competition.

The disputes involve consumers, farmers, biotechnology companies, governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, and scientists. The key areas of controversy related to genetically modified food (GM food or GMO food) are whether such food should be labeled, the role of government regulators, the objectivity of scientific research and publication, the effect of genetically modified crops on health and the environment, the effect on pesticide resistance, the impact of such crops for farmers, and the role of the crops in feeding the world population. In addition, products derived from GMO organisms play a role in the production of ethanol fuels and pharmaceuticals. Specific concerns include mixing of genetically modified and non-genetically modified products in the food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment, the rigor of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs. Advocacy groups such as the Center for Food Safety, Organic Consumers Association, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Greenpeace say risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. The safety assessment of genetically engineered food products by regulatory bodies starts with an evaluation of whether or not the food is substantially equivalent to non-genetically engineered counterparts that are already deemed fit for human consumption. No reports of ill effects have been documented in the human population from genetically modified food. There is a sc ...

HRN 372: Citizen Weather Observer Program - the Sunday Seminar at the 2017 DCC on Ham Radio Now
 
01:36:49
The Citizen Weather Observer Program ties data from all those 'citizen' weather stations out there - the ones you see at the bigger hamfests - into the NOAA system to become part of the reporting and forecasting system. One of the guys in charge is a ham, Gerry Creager N5JXS. Gerry came to the 2017 ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference in St. Louis to present the Sunday Seminar, the DCC's traditional Deep Dive into a single topic for four hours, closing the conference on Sunday morning. This epside is actually just Part One of the talk. Gerry covers a lot of ground, from what the various forms of weather stations are, to the optimum siting of the hardware, to the data supplied and how NOAA uses it. Part Two, in the next episode of HamRadioNow (online now), looks at possible improvements to the CWOP.

Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air, a trait known as volatility. For example, formaldehyde, which evaporates from paint and releases from materials like quartz, has a boiling point of only –19 °C (–2 °F). VOCs are numerous, varied, and ubiquitous. They include both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds. Most scents or odors are of VOCs. VOCs play an important role in communication between plants, and messages from plants to animals. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest. Harmful VOCs typically are not acutely toxic, but have compounding long-term health effects. Because the concentrations are usually low and the symptoms slow to develop, research into VOCs and their effects is difficult.

The Minister of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development is responsible for the National Research Council. The transformation of the NRC into an RTO that focuses on "business-led research" was part of the federal government's Economic Action Plan. On 7 May 2013, the NRC launched its new "business approach" in which it offered four business lines: strategic research and development, technical services, management of science and technology infrastructure and NRC-Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). With these services, NRC intended to shorten the gap between early stage research and development and commercialization. At one point, NRC had over 30 approved programs.The tenure of John McDougall as President of the NRC (2010–2016) was marked by a number of controversies. His presidency was characterised by a dramatic drop in publications and patents, by significant cuts in scientific staff, and by a 23-month period during which NRC management was aware that the organization was contaminating the water table in a small Ontario community but did not inform that community's inhabitants.John McDougall's departure – signalled by a sudden, three-line email to employees in March 2016 announced that he was going on personal leave. During this time Maria Aubrey, Vice President of NRC, filled the role as Acting President. Effective August 24, 2016, Iain Stewart became the new President of the NRC. The details regarding McDougall's personal leave were not publicly disclosed.

Ananya Shankar is from Chennai . She studies in 8th standard in Bala Vidya Mandir. She says "I enjoy singing, painting, writing and sports. I am really passionate about throw ball and badminton. I study in an environment where we are taught to keep our environment green and make us better and more aware citizens of today". Ananya Shankar from Bala Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Chennai is talking about Marina Beach in Chennai during an event organised by INTACH. Marina Beach is a natural urban beach in the city of Chennai, India, along the Bay of Bengal, part of the Indian Ocean. The beach runs from near Fort St. George in the north to Besant Nagar in the south, a distance of 13 km (8.1 mi), making it the longest natural urban beach in the country and the world's second longest. The Marina is primarily sandy, unlike the short, rocky formations that make up the Juhu Beach in Mumbai. The average width of the beach is 300 m (980 ft) and the width at the widest stretch is 437 m (1,434 ft). Bathing and swimming at the Marina Beach are legally prohibited because of the dangers, as the undercurrent is very turbulent. It is the most crowded beach in the country and attracts about 30,000 visitors a day during weekdays and 50,000 visitors a day during the weekends and on holidays. During summer months, about 15,000 to 20,000 people visit the beach daily. The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) is India's largest non-profit membership organization dedicated to conservation and preservation of India's natural, cultural, living, tangible and intangible heritage. Its mission is to: Sensitize the public about the pluralistic cultural legacy of India; Instill a sense of social responsibility towards preserving our common heritage; Protect and conserve our living, built, and natural heritage by undertaking necessary actions and measures; Document unprotected buildings of archaeological, architectural, historical and aesthetic significance; and cultural resources, as this is the first step towards formulating conservation plans; Develop heritage policy and regulations, and make legal interventions to protect our heritage when necessary; Provide expertise in the field of conservation, restoration and preservation of specific works of art; and encourage capacity building by developing skills through training programs; Undertake emergency response measures during natural or manmade disasters, and support local administration whenever heritage is threatened; Foster collaborations, Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) and partnerships with government and other national and international agencies; and Generate sponsorships for conservation and educational projects.

These cylindrical carbon molecules have unusual properties, which are valuable for nanotechnology, electronics, optics, and other fields of materials science and technology. Owing to the material's exceptional strength and stiffness, nanotubes have been constructed with a length-to-diameter ratio of up to 132,000,000:1, significantly larger than that for any other material. In addition, owing to their extraordinary thermal conductivity and mechanical and electrical properties, carbon nanotubes find applications as additives to various structural materials. For instance, nanotubes form a tiny portion of the material(s) in some (primarily carbon fiber) baseball bats, golf clubs, car parts, or damascus steel.Nanotubes are members of the fullerene structural family. Their name is derived from their long, hollow structure with the walls formed by one-atom-thick sheets of carbon, called graphene (as well as Buckminster Fuller's name). These sheets are rolled at specific and discrete ("chiral") angles, and the combination of the rolling angle and radius decides the nanotube properties, for example, whether the individual nanotube shell is a metal or semiconductor. Nanotubes are categorized as single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-walled nanotubes (MWNTs). Individual nanotubes naturally align themselves into "ropes" held together by van der Waals forces, more specifically, pi-stacking. Applied quantum chemistry, specifically orbital hybridization, best describes the chemical bonding in nanotubes. The chemical bonding of nanotubes involves entirely sp2-hybrid carbon atoms. These bonds, which are similar to those of graphite and stronger than those found in alkanes and diamond (which employ sp3-hybrid carbon atoms), provide nanotubes their unique strength.
