The program developed by Russian specialists of the North-Caucasian Scientific Research Institute of Gardening and Viticulture (Russian Agricultural Academy, Krasnodar) allows to select cultures, horticultural crops and other agricultural specimen the most profitable for a given locality. The development was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). If the program’s advice is used competently, there will be no need to complain about bad harvest due to caprices of nature and due to soil and climatic predilections of various fruit cultures, first of all those of the drupaceous - apricot, peach, sweet cherries and others.
The computer-based approach developed by the Kuban horticulturists allows to evaluate whether a certain fruit culture or specimen is fitted for the given locality and to secure them against caprices of weather. The enormous data bank, computer maps and a geographic information system to handle them, created by scientists from Krasnodar, Moscow, Obninsk with partial support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE) will safeguard gardening farms from global losses even in the leanest years.
They will actually protect them form the very notion of bad harvest, because they help to choose the best cultures and specimen of fruit-trees fitting for planting in the local climate and soil. They do it in such a way that some specimen of fruit-trees will serve a peculiar insurance for horticulturists in case of bad harvest of others. “As a matter of fact, this is very simple, says Irina Dragavtseva, project manager, you only need to know and take into account the requirements of cultures and specimen towards environment conditions and capabilities. And then – locate the cultures in the optimal way.”

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
