Jorge L. Ortiz USA TODAY Published 5:29 AM EDT Aug 17, 2019 Since the May 31 shooting in Virginia Beach, Virginia, that claimed his wife’s life along with 11 others, Jason Nixon said he has been in “a living hell.’’ Nixon, the father of three daughters ages 1, 6 and 13, takes them to bed amid nightly tears, then regularly wakes up with nightmares around 3 a.m. Last month he had his gallbladder removed after morning bouts of vomiting he was told were due to stress. “My kids go to bed every night crying for their mom. Every night. It’s a Groundhog Day, over and over,’’ Nixon said. “It’s the most heart-wrenching thing.’’ The anguish is made all the more acute by the lack of official word on why DeWayne Craddock, a civil engineer who worked for the Virginia Beach public utilities department, launched the barrage that killed Kate Nixon, 10 fellow city employees and a contractor who was filing for a permit. … [Read more...] about Mass shooting motives: What if we never learn why

One of the most prominent Muslim officials in Russia, Rawil Gaynetdin, who heads the Russian Council of Muftis, sparked quite a controversy in March 2019 when he stated that the number of people converting to Islam would grow in the country during the next several decades. “According to specialists whose competence is beyond doubt, in 15 months about 30% of Russia’s population will be Muslim,” he said. According to recent polls by the FOM research organization, Muslims now amount to only 7% of the population (which is around 10 million people) – though several Muslim organizations criticize the assessments as undervaluing the number of the faithful. Thus, the alleged growth of up to 30% raised some eyebrows. Nevertheless, a fellow cleric from the Orthodox Church backed Gaynetdin’s opinion. Doubtful forecasts Members of Russia's Muslim community praying in a street outside the Central Mosque during Eid al-Adha. There are only four mosques in Moscow so … [Read more...] about Is Russia a Muslim country?
Romania started taking part in the European research Framework Programmes soon after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. It was the third Framework Programme and, at that moment, science demonstrated itself as a common universal language, with no borders. Romania, alongside all the future inaugural EU12 member countries, was embarking on an exciting scientific adventure, through a Framework Programme component called Pays d’Europe Centrale et Orientale, or PECO. The EU12 member countries continued their participation, becoming associated to the fifth EU Framework Programme in 1998. At that time, the Romanian scientific community was still poorly connected with its counterparts from the “old member states” and faced large difficulties in terms of communication, project drafting, and financial management. Still, a few top research facilities in Romania quickly learned how to successfully join the Framework Programme (FP) 5 and, later, … [Read more...] about Catching up on research and innovation in Romania
