The Foundation “Children’s Palliative” appealed to the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation with a request to facilitate access to intensive care for parents of sick children, the newspaper Izvestia writes.

It is reported that within the framework of the Open Resuscitation project, an experiment was conducted in eight regions of Russia from September 2020 to November 2021, which significantly simplified the access of parents to the intensive care units where their children were.

Parents helped the medical staff with sanitary and hygienic procedures, feeding the child, monitored the operation of the equipment that is connected to it.

Weekly magazine “Arguments and Facts” No. 03. Either a bus, or a vision. When will the modernization of public transport reach cities and towns? 19/01/2022

Is it true that British intelligence planned to take Nicholas II out of Russia?

London’s attention to Romanov can be explained by the kinship of the British monarch George V with Nicholas II. According to the BBC, there is information in declassified documents of the special services that they began discussing the evacuation of Nicholas II almost immediately after his abdication on March 2, 1917. British intelligence was developing several options: the substitution of the tsar, the invasion of Russia and the involvement of Norwegians who had been in Siberia.

According to the first scenario, the servant had to shave off the ex-emperor’s beard, change clothes with him, and attach a false beard to himself. However, it was impossible to take out the whole family of Nicholas II with the help of this trick, and he refused to run alone.

Another plan was proposed by the head of the British Secret Service after the royal family was sent to Tobolsk. And on May 28, 1918, the possibility of negotiations on their evacuation was discussed with Leon Trotsky. But on the night of July 17, the family of the last emperor was shot by the Bolsheviks.

Weekly magazine “Arguments and Facts” No. 03. Either a bus, or a vision. When will the modernization of public transport reach cities and towns? 19/01/2022

For the first time in 10 years, passing scores to universities have decreased. How so? Have the children become dumber?

The expert’s answer is 0 + –

Responds with Irina Abankina, Head of the HSE Institute of Education Development:

Regional universities have received additional budget places in the specialties most in demand in the economy of a particular region. Therefore, the average passing score there has decreased. But it is not essential, so it is not worth sounding the alarm. In the universities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, the average passing score, on the contrary, has increased. And this is a trendthe last 3 years. Graduates with high USE scores are chosen by metropolitan universities, because the prestige of the university is also important for them, and among which children they will study. There is also a risk that in their regions they will find themselves among children with significantly lower scores, less motivated, who will not be able to master complex programs.

Gamalei Center: Sputnik V gives twice as many antibodies as Pfizer

Plot The fourth wave of coronavirus in Russia

The Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” is twice as effective against the strain “omicron” than the drug from Pfizer, said the N. F. Gamalei National Research Center, referring to the results of a joint study with the National Italian Institute Lazzaro Spallanzani.

“According to the results of the study, the vaccine “Sputnik V” demonstrated a titer of virus neutralizing antibodies to the strain “omicron” (B.1.1.529) more than twice as high as two injections of the Pfizer vaccine (2.1 times higher overall and 2.6 times higher three months after vaccination)”raquo;,” RIA Novosti quotes the message of the research center.

The study was conducted on the basis of the Italian Institute. The blood sera of individuals vaccinated with the V Satellite and Pfizer drug with similar levels of IgG antibodies and virus neutralizing activity to the original strain registered in Wuhan were compared.

It turned out that the Russian drug neutralized the omicron strain in 74.2% of cases, and the Pfizer vaccine in 56.9%. The researchers believe that the “Satellite” gives a stronger immune response due to a wider range of virus neutralizing antibodies and a better imitation of infection by the adenovirus platform.

The Gamalei Center also noted the high effectiveness of the drug “Sputnik Light” against “omicron” when used as a booster vaccine.

Recall, on January 17, the Australian authorities allowed entry into the country vaccinated with two doses of the vaccine “Sputnik V”. The Australian regulator noted that the drug from the Russian Federation showed 89% effectiveness against coronavirus infection.
