Hi all:

I have friends here in Michigan who are trying to adopt a little boy and
girl from orphanages in Irkutsk.  As you can imagine, they are worried sick
about the plane crash because it supposedly hit an orphanage in Irkutsk.
The little boy is in Orphanage #2 in Irkutsk.  Can anyone tell us whether
this was the orphanage which was hit by the plane??

Any other information would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I am doing research on how thirty years (1958-88) years of cultural and
scholarly exchanges between the Soviet Union and the United States helped
to change Soviet society and prepare the way for glasnost and perestroika,
and much that followed.

I am interested in hearing from Russians and other former citizens of tghe
Soviet Union who participagted in the US-USSR exchange programs, and
learning how the exchange helped their careers, affected their views of the
Soviet Union and the United Ststes, and may have contributed to the changes
in Soviet society that resulted from study and visits to the West.

Subject: Online Economics Resources for ex-USSR Teachers



Center for Civil Society International, in cooperation with the
National Council on Economic Education (New York), is pleased to
announce the publication in English and in Russian of ...

	    "Internet Resources for Economic Educators"

"Internet Resources for Economic Educators" is an annotated guide to
Internet sites and electronic mailing lists selected especially for
purposes of economic education in post-Soviet societies. Both Western
and Eurasian economic educators will find much of value in it. The
resources included in this unique guide are excellent supplements to
classroom instruction, and will bring the online world alive for any
educational institution with access to the Internet. Most of the sites
and resources described in the 83-page booklet are in English, but 12
pages describe exceptional Russian and Ukrainian sites.

Not least of the book's advantages is the time it saves users by
collecting a great deal of related but dispersed information in one
place and eliminating tedious Web searches.

In addition to the English edition, a Russian edition is also now
available. The price of "Vozmozhnosti Interneta dlya Prepodavatelei
Eknomicheskikh Disiplin" is 35,000 rubles plus shipping and handling.
Orders for the Russian edition should be directed to Wordsmiths
Communications in Moscow, tel. [7] (095) 953-3002.  E-mail inquiries
should be sent to Nicholas Pilugin at: nwpilugin@glasnet.ru.

As a co-publication of CCSI and the National Council on Economic
Education (NCEE), "Internet Resources for Economic Educators" is part
of a larger NCEE project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, to
train economic educators in various nations of the former USSR. Further
information about this project is available from Ms. Patricia Elder,
Vice President, EconomicsInternational, National Council on Economic
Education, 1140 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036. Tel. (212)
730-7007.

Internet Resources for Economic Educators is 83 pages in length and
sells for $12.95 plus $4 shipping and handling.

Subject: I need help

Hello, dear friends!

My name is Lily and I'm very happy to find out this kind of program which
helps to contact the people.  I'm Russian missionary and I'm developing
program "Love for the lost orfanage" in Russia.  I have official paper that
I'm representing local government in Novosibirsk,Russia.  Also I have a
friend he is world famous scientest from Russia, now he is in the USA, he
is biologist.  Recently he has approved invention.  This is his letter to
me:

Dear Lily,

Thank you very much for your msg which is full of kindness.  I am grateful
to Zina that they helped in arranging our contacts.  I continue to work
hard in science, as I did it most of my life, and I am happy that I can be
useful teaching our graduate studrents, and trying to contribute more to
human's wellbeing.  As you know, science can be a powerful tool to pursue
this goal.  During my years in America I succeeded to propose new
approaches to treatment of cancer.  I have a rather modest financial
support which allows to move very slowly ahead.  I believe that these
approaches are promising ( as do here my experienced colleagues).  I do not
think that we will be able to treat all cancers, but for treatment of
breast cancer and some brain tumors the approachs seem to be applicable.
That is why I am frustrated that we cannot move faster in this area which
is so important for human health and happiness.  I am a rather insistent
person and I'll do all what I can to pursue this goal.  I have a feeling
that it is a kind of a blessing and that it is my obligation to make the
results which we have achieved available to people.  I am applying two
short abstracts which make possible to understand what we are speaking
about.  If there are people who are interested in these approaches, we can
find the ways to discuss these data in more detail.  I wish you good
health, happiness and success.  God bless you!  My best regards to Zina.
Take care.  Rudolph.


1. A new approach to breast cancer chemotherapy: cell targeted apoptosis
induced by iron-containing compound

Rudolph I. Salganik, Wjatschesslaw A. Wlassoff, Craig D. Albright , Colin
S.Burns, Angelica S. Vrablik and Malcolm D.E. Forbes

Abstract: Breast cancer is a major cause of death, affecting nearly a
quarter of million women each year throughout the world.  About 60% of
breast cancers are rich in estradiol receptors and their growth is
hormone-dependent.  A number of antiestrogenes have been synthesized, which
interact with the estradiol receptors, but in contrast to estradiol they do
not induce the cancer growth; the antiestrogenes prevent binding of
estradiol to the receptors and its cancer growth promoting action.  Cancer
cells are known to generate high levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
Reaction of H2O2 with ionized iron results in the formation of highly
reactive hydroxyl radicals, which kill cells by apoptosis.  We have
suggested that addressed delivery of iron to the breast cancer cells may
selectively kill the malignant cells.  To test this hypothesis we have
synthesized a new iron containing derivativede capable of recognizing
breast cancer cellse.This compound was used to deliver reactive iron to
MCF-7 human breast cancer cells.  Hictochemical studies revealed selective
accumulation of iron in MCF-7 cells, delivered specifically by this new
compound.  It was shown that the compound triggers in human breast cancer
cells formation of reactive oxygen species and induces selectively
apoptosis.  We have found that the compound inhibits cell proliferation and
kills the cancer cells by apoptosis.

2. Elimination of malignant cells by removal of antioxidant species
.
Rudolph I. Salganik, Craig D. Albright and Terry Van Dyke

Abstract: A number of recent data demonstrate that apoptosis (progammed
cell death) eliminates selectively preneoplastic, carcinoma and other
malignant cells.  Anticancer drugs and radiation kill malignant cells by
inducing apoptosis.  The development of new methods of enhancing apoptosis
can intensify the irradication of malignant cells, and effectiveness of
anticancer treatment modalities.  Reactive oxygen species are essential
mediators of apoptosis.  A new method is proposed for enhancing apoptotic
death of malignant cells by deleting some antioxidant moieties.  The method
makes possible to dramatically inhibit brain tumor growth in experimental
animals, and is thus a promising new treatment of patients with
malignancies.
