Глава Крыма Сергей Аксенов на своей странице во «ВКонтакте» рассказал о пятилетней энергетической блокаде полуострова. По словам Аксенова, энергоблокада была прорвана в кратчайшие сроки.
«Энергетическая блокада была прорвана в кратчайшие сроки, а пережитые испытания еще больше сплотили крымчан. Мы еще раз убедились в правильности выбора, сделанного в марте 2014 года», — написал глава Крыма.
По словам Аксенова, запуск новых электростанций позволил Крыму перестать быть энергодефицитным регионом. Ранее полуостров получал до 80% электроэнергии с территории Украины. Однако пять лет назад, как заявил Аксенов, «подконтрольные киевскому режиму террористы взорвали опоры ЛЭП в Херсонской области, обесточив весь полуостров».
Аксенов также высказался о водной блокаде. До 2014 года на полуостров поступала вода из Днепра по Северо-Крымскому каналу, однако в 2017-м власти Херсонской области Украины построили дамбу, которая полностью перекрыла водоснабжение полуострова. Глава Крыма заявил, что «Киев привычно наступает на старые грабли», заявляя, что полуостров не сможет решить проблему с водой.
«Полным ходом идет реализация мероприятий комплексного плана, разработанного правительством. Нет никаких сомнений в том, что проблема вододефицита будет решена раз и навсегда, как были решены проблемы энергодефицита и транспортной доступности полуострова», — написал Аксенов.
Правительство разработало комплексный план водоснабжения Крыма. На его реализацию выделят 50 млрд руб. из федерального бюджета. Выделенные деньги планируется потратить на разработку новых источников воды, строительство гидротехнических сооружений, объектов водоснабжения и водоотведения, а также на капитальный ремонт инфраструктуры.
Ant and Dec have come to Beverley Callard's defense after she has been repeatedly accused of 'faking her veganism' on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.
Her dietary requirements caused ruffles on social media again during Monday night's episode when the camp were rewarded with scotch eggs, which she speedily quaffed alongside her other celebrity contestants.
When a Twitter user penned: 'Well well well Beverly... was that scotch egg vegan?', Dec took to the presenting duo's joint Twitter account to defend the Coronation Street legend, 63, writing: 'She got a vegan one tbf. D #imacelebrity'.
Since entering the show, Beverley has claimed she turned vegan in March, just a few months before the start of the ITV series, but has baffled viewers after appearing to tuck into non vegan meals and treats in camp.
Her veganism meant she has swerved arguably the worst dishes in the notorious eating trial, but confused fans again as she appeared to enjoy a scotch egg.
After Jordan and Ruthie chose the treat over chocolate mini eggs in the day's Castle Coin Challenge, the whole camp were seen tucking into the treat.
A typical Scotch egg usually consists of a hard boiled egg wrapped in pork sausage meat and then dipped in bread crumbs.
Viewers took to Twitter in droves to question if vegan Beverley should be allowed the snack, with one tweeting: 'Is Bev only vegan when it comes to the trials? I see her eating that scotch egg.'
'Bev, the scotch egg, eel eating, squirrel eating, meat eating, vegan' teased another.
Bev has sparked questions from fans about her sudden change to a vegan diet since entering the I'm A Celeb castle.
And even the actress' on-screen son Simon Gregson has admitted he's not convinced by her sudden change to a healthy lifestyle.
The Coronation Street star, 46, who has played Liz McDonald's son Steve for 31 years, joked he 'must be a mango' if Beverley has really decided to become a vegan, hinting she could be trying to swerve some of the show's more disgusting dishes.
Speaking on Friday's Loose Women, Simon told the panel that it's likely Beverley decided to go vegan given her daughter follows the same diet.
Captain Jack is back, again, and is set to return in Doctor Who's festive special Revolution Of The Daleks.
It was announced by the BBC on Monday that John Barrowman would reprise his role once more, after making a surprise cameo in series 12's Fugitive Of The Judoon earlier this year.
The actor, 53, will transform into Harkness to help 'the fam', Yaz, Ryan and Graham, while The Doctor remains locked away in a space prison.
In the hotly-anticipated episode, Jack will offer a helping hand to the trio after they discover a terrifying plan involving one of the Doctor's most infamous adversaries, the Daleks.
With the Thirteenth Doctor out of action, it's up to Captain Jack to save the day and make sure Earth doesn't succumb to the Daleks' malevolent plot.
Gushing about his return, John said in a statement: 'Putting on Jack's coat and setting foot back on the set of Doctor Who was just like going back home. It's always thrilling to play Captain Jack.
'He's a character very close to my heart who changed my life, and to know the fans love him as much as I do makes his return even sweeter. I hope everyone enjoys Jack's Heroic adventure with Thirteen.'
Showrunner Chris Chibnall went on: 'A Doctor Who Festive Special means treats galore, and there's no bigger treat than the return of John Barrowman to Doctor Who, for an epic and emotional feature-length episode.
'If anyone can blast away the sheer rubbishness of 2020, it's Captain Jack. Daleks beware!'
In Fugitive Of The Judoon, Graham, Ryan, and Yaz find themselves transported to a spaceship piloted by Jack, and gives the trio a warning for The Doctor about 'The Lone Cyberman'.
Before that moment, Captain Jack had not been seen on the show since a cameo in 2011, and not as a main character since 2009.
John first appeared in Doctor Who back in 2005, in a two-part story with Christopher Eccleston's iteration of the titular Time Lord, before going on to star in multiple episodes with both Christopher and David Tennant's Doctors.
The character of Captain Jack became so popular he bagged his own spin-off series Torchwood, where the character took the lead role for four series', concluding in 2011's 'Children of Earth'.
Elusive 'ghost particles' produced deep within the Sun have been detected for the first time, helping to shed light on the reactions that make massive stars shine.
Researchers were able to capture evidence of the particles as they passed through a special detector buried beneath a mountain near the town of L'Aquila, Italy.
The rare emissions — which travelled 90 million miles to reach us — are produced in certain nuclear reactions that account for less than a per cent of the Sun's energy.
However, these reactions are thought to be more dominant in larger stars — and may help explain their formation and evolution.
'Now we finally have the first, ground-breaking, experimental confirmation of how stars heavier than the sun shine,' said paper author and astroparticle physicist Gianpaolo Bellini of the University of Milan.
Stars are powered by the fusion of hydrogen into helium, which can occur by two different processes — the first being the so-called proton-proton chain, which involves only isotopes of hydrogen and helium. This is dominant in stars like the Sun.
In larger stars, however, the so-called carbon–nitrogen–oxygen (CNO) cycle — in which these three elements help catalyse the nuclear reactions — becomes a more significant source of energy. It also releases ghostly particles called neutrinos.
These are nearly massless — and are capable of passing through ordinary matter without giving up any indication of their presence.
Physicists have wanted to study these emissions from the Sun, however, as better understanding how the CNO cycle works in our star will offer insights into how larger stars — where this process is dominant — burn their nuclear fuel.
To detect the sun's CNO neutrino emissions, physicists used the so-called 'Borexino detector' — a 55-feet-tall, layered, onion-like machine which contains at its heart a spherical tank called a 'scintillator' that is filled with 278 tonnes of a special liquid.
When neutrinos pass through this liquid, they can interact with its electrons — releasing tiny flashes whose brightness is indicative of the neutrino's energy, with those produced by the CNO cycle being on the more intense end.
These are picked up by camera-like sensors and analysed by powerful hardware.
To ensure that the detector only picks up the rare neutrino signals — and is not overwhelmed by cosmic radiation — the Borexino experiment is both buried underground and further shielded by being cocooned in a water tank.
'This is the culmination of a thirty years long effort which began in 1990 — and of more than ten years of Borexino's discoveries in the physics of the Sun, neutrinos and finally stars,' said Professor Bellini.
According to physicist Gioacchino Ranucci, also of Milan, the success of the experiment should be credited to the 'unprecedented purity' of the solution.
The detection of the CNO neutrinos has revealed how much of the sun is made up of the elements carbon, nitrogen and oxygen.
'Despite the exceptional successes previously achieved and an already ultra-pure detector we had to work hard to further improve the suppression and understanding of the very low residual backgrounds,' Dr Ranucci added.
This, he continued, allowed them to 'identify the neutrinos of the CNO cycle.'
The finding finally confirms that some of the sun’s energy is indeed made by CNO cycle reactions — a notion that was first proposed back in 1938.
'It is the crowning of a relentless, years-long effort that has led us to push the technology beyond any previously reached limit,' said Borexino Experiment spokesperson Marco Pallavicini, who is a physicist from Genoa University.
This, he added, has made 'Borexino's core the least radioactive place in the world.'
The full findings of the study were published in the journal Nature.
