Sergei Khrushchev

Sergei Nikitich Khrushchev is the son of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. He now resides in the United States. Khrushchev holds several advanced engineering degrees. From the Ukrainian Academy of Science, he earned his doctoral degree, he earned a Ph. D. from the Moscow Technical University. In addition, he earned an M. A. degree with distinction from the Moscow Electric Power Institute. He holds an "occasional" professorship at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, meaning he is not a full-time professor, but does teach there often. Prior to emigrating from the Soviet Union to the United States in 1991, Khrushchev worked in various high-level engineering positions. From 1968 to 1991, he served at the Control Computer Institute in Moscow, where he rose from section head to first deputy director in charge of research. From the years 1958 to 1968, Dr. Khrushchev worked as an engineer later as a deputy section head in charge of guidance systems for missile and space design. In this capacity, he worked on cruise missiles for submarine craft and research spacecraft, moon vehicles, the "Proton" space booster.

He speaks to American audiences to share his memories of the "other" side of the Cold War. Khrushchev serves as an advisor to the Cold War Museum, he was a Senior Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. On July 12, 1999, he and his wife, became naturalized citizens of the United States. Sergei's son from a previous marriage, Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev, a Russian journalist, died on February 22, 2007, aged 47, from a stroke, he has another son, whose name is Sergei.

Bristol XLRQ

The Bristol XLRQ-1 was a 12-seat amphibious glider of the Bristol Aeronautical Corporation, New Haven, developed for the United States Marine Corps in 1942-43. Only two prototypes were built before the USMC scrapped the idea of glider use in 1943. Inspired by the use of gliders by Germany, the United States Navy and USMC initiated a glider program in May 1941. Two glider types were envisioned, a 24 seat-type; the Naval Aircraft Factory was requested to undertake preliminary design of the gliders, which were to be constructed of wood or composite materials. The idea was to have enough gliders to transport one battalion of Marines with equipment. Consolidated PBYs should be used to tow the gliders; the Marines requested a glider capable of landing and take off from both land and water, be capable of static line parachute jumping and have exterior machine guns. In 1942, the USMC established Marine Glider Group 71 at Page Field, Parris Island, South Carolina, using the Schweizer LNS-1 and Pratt-Read LNE-1 also Aeronca LNR-1 gliders for training.

For towing the unit used N3N Canary biplane trainers and J2F Duck amphibians. For the 12-seat type the beach assault role in mind, the U. S. Navy ordered prototypes, the Allied Aviation Corporation XLRA-1 and the Bristol Aeronautical Corporation XLRQ-1. Technically, the gliders were successful designs, 100 of each were ordered. A licence production by the Naval Aircraft Factory as the LRN-1 was envisioned. Although the U. S. Navy ordered four XLRQ-1 prototypes, only two were built; the glider had a retractable landing gear and the wing roots provided lateral stability on the water. However, glider assault was not tactically feasible against small defended islands in the Pacific, not enough gliders were arriving from factories and too many pilots were being assigned to the glider program. Therefore, the program was scrapped in 1943.

Caricuao is a district of Caracas, Venezuela. It is part of Libertador municipality, it is named after a powerful indigenous chief of the Caracas tribe, who fought bravely against the Spaniard Conquistadores. Caricuao is known as the second vegetal reserve of Caracas; the most important public zoo of the capital, the Parque Zoológico Caricuao, is located there. Since its foundation in 1961 it has had a strong cultural movement in the music, the first rocksteady and ska bands of Venezuela were born in this neighborhood, for this it is known as "The Independent Republic of Reggae and Ska". From Caricuao broadcasts "Radio Perola", one of the most emblematic independent communitary radio stations in the nation. Since it is a large neighborhood, it is possible to get there on several Caracas Metro stations on Line 2 such as Caricuao, Ruiz Pineda, Zoológico. A new subway line opened in October 2006 to connect Las Adjuntas, a neighboring suburb, Caracas to Los Teques, capital city of Miranda State and an important pole of development.



Titer is a way of expressing concentration. Titer testing employs serial dilution to obtain approximate quantitative information from an analytical procedure that inherently only evaluates as positive or negative; the titer corresponds to the highest dilution factor. For example, positive readings in the first 8 serial twofold dilutions translate into a titer of 1:256. Titers are sometimes expressed by the denominator only, for example 1:256 is written 256; the term has two other, conflicting meanings. In titration, the titer is the ratio of actual to nominal concentration of a titrant, e.g. a titer of 0.5 would require 1/0.5 = 2 times more titrant than nominal. This is to compensate for possible degradation of the titrant solution. Second, in textile engineering, titer is a synonym for linear density. A specific example is a viral titer, the lowest concentration of virus that still infects cells. To determine the titer, several dilutions are prepared, such as 10−1, 10−2, 10−3... 10−8. The titer of a fat is the temperature, in degrees Celsius.

The higher the titer, the harder the fat. This titer is used in determining whether an animal fat is considered a grease. Serology Titration Antibody titer W/v Mg% Virus quantification Viral titer
