On the relationship of war, militarisation of science and the revolution in military Affairs: what the answer is philosophy, and how does it work in practice?
Проект: New in the military

War is sustainable and the most acute phenomenon of resolving social conflicts, and thereby attracts the attention of philosophers of various historical periods. Philosophers approach the study of war from all sides: someone is talking about the moral side, morality, religion, psychology, and someone who considers the relationship between war, industrialization, use of achievements of science and technology. Technological development goes forward in this regard, the problem of war does not lose its relevance. The current state of development of military technology and adequate openness of States to innovation are new challenges to philosophy. Today the understanding of the war is impossible without understanding what causes the willingness of States to accept the concept of revolution in military Affairs (RMA) and that contribute to the successful implementation of the latter.

Seven sci-Fi technologies creating our future
Проект: New in Science

The last few decades we have seen how one technology replace the other, trying to break into the consumer market. Buying a new smartphone or a flying drone, very easy to see how quickly these changes occur. Take the TV is one of the most common examples of consumer electronics that became popular about 70 years ago. Many of those who survived, most likely, still keep the memories of "delevitras" era. Similarly, some technologies that seem fantastic today, our children (and if not children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren) will undoubtedly be perceived as normal and perhaps even outdated.

Mathematical models of the population dynamics of the Earth
Проект: The future of Russia and the world: estimates and projections

The number of people living on Earth is one of the main factors determining the future development of mankind. If 100 years ago the increase in population in most countries represented the main driver of their economic and political development, in recent decades, it has changed its "sign" as it transformed itself from dignity to a big problem. If for 1900 years since the beginning of the new era the number of people has increased about 5.8 times, over the next 117 years, from 1990 to 2017 years, it increased 4.6 times. I.e. the growth rate increased by about 13 times. A large number of people in the world causing more wars, including world war conflicts on the economic, national and religious soil, contribute to the exacerbation of environmental problems. Of particular significance is the growth of the population living on Earth is for the commodity sector of the world economy. Issues such as provision of food, the necessary quantities of fresh water, energy resources, metals enter into all the intensifying conflict with the high rate of population growth. Despite the improvement of technologies of extraction and production of raw materials in the near future, they may no longer keep pace with population growth in the world. Therefore, for the formation of a reasonable long-term forecasts and strategic plans development need to constantly improve the methodological apparatus of scientific prediction of global and fundamental growth factors. Such a device exists and is constantly being improved. This involved a large number of famous people. In the formation of long-term forecasts, you can use these results. But, in our opinion, many of these results is questionable. Therefore, the Center of strategic estimations and forecasts has decided to designate its position on the question of population growth on Earth. It is clear that when analysing future challenges it is necessary to consider not only the total population worldwide, but the distribution of the number of people in different countries and regions. But the total population is the main trend, which is modulated by specific regional features. And globally, the situation becomes explosive. The analogy with the explosion becomes stronger if we consider the mathematical model for the dynamics of the total population in the world.

As NATO countries fighting each other

Remember, we discussed how the Spanish patrol boat tried to stop the submarine with ballistic missiles on Board to dock in Gibraltar, which was fired by a British warship. But it was in the history of another event that has led to full-scale war of one country against another NATO country NATO, although it was not formally declared war. But we'll start from far away. Until the end of world war II, many Islands in the Aegean sea belonged to Italy and the island of Cyprus was a British colony until 1960. This arrangement serves as a buffer and to avoid possible armed clashes. The Greeks, however, never forgave Turkey the fact that the Turks disarmed the Greek military unit that crossed the border to get into German captivity after the occupation of their homeland in April 1941. The Greek military is not allowed to go to Egypt, where remnants of the Greek army and sent them to internment camps. Not forgotten and the friendship Treaty signed by Turkey with Nazi Germany on 18 June 1941 and the supply of chromium during three years of war for the needs of the Wehrmacht planned attack on the Soviet Union after the fall of Stalingrad. We discussed this topic in a non-belligerent ally of Hitler. But that's not all ...
