Karpova N. V. Ecologization of Spatial Development of Urban Areas

Formation and development of the urbanized territories in recent years has gained extremely important value. On the one hand, any territory, and especially urbanized, have spatial character which in turn has significant effect on placement of various functional and territorial zones with obligatory accounting of an ecological component, i. e.

Bakai E. O. Economic-statistical Analysis of Losses in Electricity Transmission on High-voltage Wires in Russia

The paper presents the theoretical study of power losses in the corona discharge that occurs when the transmission on high-voltage wires (air lines). How does this phenomenon occur? Power losses in the wires depend on the current, to reduce losses in transmission over long distances, voltage repeatedly increases to values above a few hundred thousand volts, but with the growth of tension begin to occur various discharge phenomena, ionization of the air. Ionization of air near high-voltage wires (overhead power lines) is the cause of some natural hazards — like discharge, which was called «crown». A corona discharge occurs around high voltage wires (overhead power lines), accompanied by an unusual sound similar to a hiss, light phenomenon of the blue color, as well as the formation of ozone. The crown often leads to corrosion of the wires. The energy loss reduction is among the main goals identified in the strategy of development of the future of the electric grid complex of the Russian Federation. In 2018 the amount of electricity losses in the national average is expected to decrease by 11% compared to 2012. The work purpose — analysis of electricity losses in the country due to the occurrence of corona discharge, and the development of modern, multi-purpose proposals to reduce energy losses to the crown. The main objectives of the work is to study and compile statistical data on losses of electricity, identify and describe positive and negative trends, and to formulate proposals to mitigate loss to corona in overhead transmission lines.


Key words: development; dynamics; electricity; loss of electricity; a corona discharge.

Denisova A. V. Russian Federal Language Policy and Linguistic Preferences of the Youth in the South of Russia

The article investigates key goals and fundamentals of language policy in modern world and in Russia that are defined by the main needs in linguistic competence, socio-cultural and legal conditions necessary for languages to function. The prevailing trend in language policy in modern developed countries is providing language equality. This focus of language policy is typical for Russia as well. Nevertheless, analysis of the linguistic preferences of the youth in three Southern Russian regions demonstrates that implementation of such a policy requires not only enforceability but also sufficient investment. Comparative analysis of the linguistic preferences of the youth in Astrakhan region, Rostov region and the Republic of Kalmykia indicates that the youth are targeted at mastering the Russian language as well as a foreign language rather than their native languages.


Key words: language policy; cultural identity; language equality; bilingualism; native language.

Panfilova J. S. The School as a Channel for the Construction of Russian Identity: the Ratio of National-state and Civil Components

Construction of Russian national identity defined as a projective task of the school, as reflected in the Federal state educational standards of General education and is primarily achieved through the teaching of history, social science, Russian language and literature. The treatment of these documents, the works devoted to methods of teaching, as well as the results of sociological research of the structure of identity of Russian students suggests that to date, the identification activities of the school focused on patriotism and national identity in its political and legal understanding. Civil legal component in the overall structure of identity, however, remains poorly formed: civil rights in most cases, not moving from knowledge in the axiological and activity components of social practices of students.

The specificity of the problems of the Russian higher school and their impact on the development of society is considered. The negative impact of the formalization of higher education institutions is shown. It is shown that to overcome many problems of higher education it is advisable to create a system of institutional management of the University. An example of the implementation of these approaches in the system of international education of the South-Russian state Polytechnic University (NPI) is given.

Ermachkov I. A., Panfilova J. S., Romanov M. S., Ukraintseva I. I., Khovyakova A. L. Educational Strategies of University Entrants and Students of the System of Secondary Professional Education

In the conditions of the massization of higher education and the establishment of the idea in the public consciousness that only the graduation of the university determines successful dispositions in the labor market, reformers and researchers are faced with the question: does the current system of secondary vocational education satisfy the needs of the market economy or serve as an intermediate stage between school and university? The article presents the results of the all-Russian sociological research, the purpose of which was to identify the specifics of the educational strategies of entrants and students of the system of secondary vocational education. Based on empirical data, the authors come to the conclusion that to date, applicants and students of SVE organizations at higher educational institutions are more focused on the strategy «SVE as a stepping stone to university entrance»; entrants and students of organizations of free-software companies that have the status of an independent legal entity tend to gravitate towards the opposite pole ( «SVE as a way of obtaining a profession»). At the same time, both groups are united by a rather high orientation toward higher education and negative attitudes toward the USE, which indicates a transitional state of educational strategies for students of the entire SVE system.


Key words: system of secondary vocational education; educational strategies; motivation of professional choice; career expectations; entrants and students of organizations of secondary vocational education.
