Albright College is a member of NCAA Division III
Athletics competition at more than 1,000 colleges and universities is governed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which maintains three divisions to offer “level playing fields” for the smallest liberal arts colleges and the most committed and funded major-university athletics programs. The largest division in terms of number of schools and number of participants is Division III, which comprises more than 170,000 student-athletes at 444 mostly smaller institutions.
Academics are the primary focus for Division III student-athletes. The division minimizes the conflicts between athletics and academics and keeps student-athletes on a path to graduation through shorter practice and playing seasons, the number of contests, no redshirting and regional competition that reduces time away from academic studies. Student-athletes are integrated on campus and treated like all other members of the general student-body, keeping them focused on being a student first.

– Division III athletics departments are dedicated to offering broad-based programs with a high number and wide range of athletics participation opportunities for both men and women.
– Division III places primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition, while also offering 36 national championships annually.

The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) was recognized as an undesirable organization in Russia.He will no longer be able to open branches in Russia and carry out his programs here. The Prosecutor General’s Office saw in the work of this NGO as a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order and security of the state. The department sent this information to the Ministry of Justice to include the NDI in the list of undesirable organizations. This NGO, whose board of directors is chaired by former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, was previously included in the “patriotic stop list” of the Federation Council (SF).
The Prosecutor General’s Office recognized the activities of NDI in Russia as undesirable “based on the results of studying the materials received” about the organization in the department.According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, the activities of the NDI pose a threat to the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation and the security of the state. Information about the decision taken by the Prosecutor General’s Office was sent to the Ministry of Justice to include the NDI in the list of undesirable organizations.
The NDI website states that it began operating in Russia in the late 1980s, and in 2012 the NPO office in Russia was closed. Since then, NDI has continued to work in the Russian Federation with partner organizations, according to its website. The organization emphasizes that they do not support any of the political ideologies and that they do not issue grants.“In its work, NDI promotes international exchange through educational visits, consultations, seminars, conferences and distribution of materials,” the organization’s website says. The chairman of the NDI board of directors is the former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
As a reminder, in July 2015 the Federation Council compiled the so-called “patriotic stop-list”, in addition to the NDI, it included 12 more NGOs: the National Endowment for Democracy, the International Republican Institute, the Soros Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, Freedom House, the Charles Stuart Mott Foundation , the Education for Democracy Foundation, the Eastern European Democratic Center, the World Congress of Ukrainians, the Ukrainian World Coordination Council, and the Crimean Field Mission for Human Rights.The Federation Council sent the “stop list”, which in itself has no legal force, to the heads of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the Prosecutor General’s Office to check the NGOs included in it for “anti-Russian activity” and their possible recognition as undesirable in Russia. The Federation Council did not explain what exactly the anti-Russian threat of these NGOs is (see Kommersant dated July 8, 2015).
On May 23, 2015, the president signed a law that allows foreign and international NGOs to be recognized as undesirable in Russia if their activities, in the opinion of law enforcement agencies, pose a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order of the Russian Federation or the security of the state.Undesirable NPOs included in the register cannot open branches in the Russian Federation, distribute information materials (including on the Internet) and carry out their programs on the territory of the Russian Federation. The first on the register was the American National Endowment for Democracy, then the Soros Foundation was also recognized as undesirable.
From an unclean leaf
On July 8, 2015, the Federation Council (FC) sent a patriotic stop-list to the heads of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the Prosecutor General’s Office “in connection with the need” to counter the “anti-Russian activity” of some foreign organizations.The senators included in the list the Soros Foundation, Freedom House and the Crimean Field Mission for Human Rights (12 organizations in total), but could not explain how these structures interfere in Russia’s internal politics. Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko noted that the list is of a “warning nature”. Read more

Madeleine Albright: “Madame Secretary of State” or “Madame Minister”?
Memoirs of the former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright “Madam Secretary of State” is a special book, if not unique. It is a hefty seven-page tome, published by a reputable publishing house, looks aristocratic and decent, but only until you begin to peer into the details.
Simplicity is worse than theft
The first chapters of the book tell about the plight of the Korbel family, who twice fled from their native Czech Republic, first from the Nazis, to England, then from the Communists, to America. About how Maria-Yana, aka Madeleine Corbel, met a poor and modest American young man who unexpectedly turned out to be the heir to the Patterson media tycoons and Guggenheim financial tycoons, his name was Joe Albright. Madeleine Corbel-Albright then learns that her grandparents on both lines, whom she naively believed to be Czechs, were in fact Jews and victims of the Holocaust.The heroine rethinks her life, and, realizing her Jewishness, comprehends herself, but does not renounce her faith in the virgin Mary’s immaculate conception, as well as pork legs with cabbage . Here, it is imperative to mention the heroine’s father, Mr. Josef Korbel. “Madame Secretary” repeatedly emphasizes that intellectually, her father and Zbigniew Brzezinski had the greatest influence on her . Who is the “iron Zbig” and what is the essence of his ideas, the population of the post-Soviet space, that is, you and I, is well aware, perhaps even too well.What is Mr. Korbel like?
American readers of the memoirs are most likely familiar with Joseph Korbel, professor at the Faculty of International Relations at the University of Denver, Colorado, author of five fundamental monographs, mainly on the history of Eastern Europe (Tito’s Communism, Communist Overthrow of Czechoslovakia, and others). Much less is known about Josef Korbel, a Czech diplomat who worked in Yugoslavia and India, who fled in a hurry from “Soviet-occupied” Prague through Belgrade to London and further to the United States, where he fell under a wave of anti-communist purges inspired by Senator J.McCarthy. For almost ten years, Korbel was “on the notice” of the FBI, due to which he could not obtain American citizenship. He equally disliked the fascists, communists and republicans-McCarthyists and, which is especially important for us, was able to instill these beliefs in his daughter .
“To understand me, you need to understand my father,” says “Madame Secretary” . To fully understand Mr. Korbel, one must, of course, familiarize oneself with his scientific works, which is not easy to do in our country – his anti-Soviet opuses have not been published in Russian, and they have not been republished in English for a long time.However, some general impression of this man, based on the memoirs of his daughter, can still be formed. And this impression, to put it mildly, is not very favorable. Take, for example, the story of the Jewish origin of Mrs. Albright and her relatives who died in the Auschwitz concentration camp, including the closest ones – two grandmothers and a grandfather. Madeleine Albright swears to her readers that she found out about this, already becoming Secretary of State. Before that, she believed that her ancestors were Czechs and died for natural reasons, “from old age” .Elsewhere, “Madame Secretary”, however, blurts out that she had certain doubts, but she preferred not to think about it . It ended with the fact that materials about the tragic fate of the grandparents of Mrs. Albright, appeared on the pages of the “Washington Post”, became the subject of discussion throughout America.
“Some reporters not only wrote about the tragedy of my grandparents and other family members, but based on this story they questioned my honesty and my father’s personal qualities,” Ms. Albright recalls. Indeed, by keeping silent about the death of his parents and his Jewish origin, Joseph Korbel acted strangely, to say the least. No less strange is the unwillingness of the “Madame Secretary” herself to deal with white spots in family history and oddities in her father’s behavior.
The American press explained this behavior of Mrs. Albright “either by the desire to make a career, or by some combination of snobbery and shame” . She herself blames the belated disclosure of the secrets of her Jewishness … Republicans-anti-Communists.“Rampant McCarthyism in the 1950s. could make parents unsure of what else to expect. Perhaps they wanted to tell me about everything, but they never found the right time for this, ”she writes . Not too convincing arguments, to put it mildly. And, in the end, regardless of the political climate in the United States: can a person be considered honest and decent who has been deceiving his own family for years, even with the best of intentions? This question “Madame Secretary” leaves unanswered.
In general, Mr. Korbel appears before us from the pages of his memoirs not as a liar, cynically manipulating his family, but rather as a romantic and idealist living in a world of invented castles in the air, ready, however, for the sake of preserving his illusory world for any deception. For example, in exile, Josef Korbel creates for himself the image of a certain ideal Czech Republic, which over the years is increasingly moving away from reality. “Czechoslovakia between the two world wars was the only functioning democracy in Central Europe,” writes Mr. Korbel in one of his books.“While other European countries experienced political and social upheavals, suffered from financial instability and one after another succumbed to the pressure of fascism, Czechoslovakia was a stronghold of peace, democracy and progress” . Such a picture, to put it mildly, is far from reality, but Mr. Korbel seems to sincerely believe in his words. Madeleine Albright shares this belief.
The image of Tomáš Masaryk, the first president of Czechoslovakia, portrayed by Madeleine Albright according to her father, has just as little to do with a real person.In the description of Ms. Albright, Masaryk appears as a complete Americanophile who “enthusiastically embraced the principles on which the American political system was built” and transferred them to Czech soil . Masaryk’s deep dedication to the ideals of democracy, in its American understanding, and the American way of life as such, “Madame Secretary” illustrates with the following example: “Masaryk was married to the American Charlotte Garrigue and took a progressive step by adopting her maiden name as his middle name” [ nineteen] .This means what progress is – marry / marry an American / American, take her / his name as yours and assimilate if you are lucky enough to live in the USA, or rebuild your country according to the American model if you have the misfortune to live outside the “land of the free, the homeland of the brave.” Madeleine Albright herself built her life in full accordance with this paradigm …
In 1959, Madeleine Corbel marries Joe Albright, the youngest offspring of the Medill-Pattersons on one line and the Guggenheims on the other, a young man belonging to the creme de la creme, – so to speak, the top cream of American society.Moreover, the “Madame Secretary” herself swears that she was sure of the poverty of her chosen one and that he goes to the Korbels home to eat hearty Czech food . The Patterson-Guggenheim family does not accept Madeleine very willingly, but after the birth of twin daughters in 1961, she becomes a full member of the clan.
Madeleine Albright does not work, preferring to improve her education in her free time from raising three daughters, in particular, she learns Russian (in eight weeks) .She wears the role of a housewife, being the classic incarnation of the oxymoron about a cook who dreams of running a state. Recalling that time, she writes: “I believed and still believe that women should be able to make their own decisions based on their own life circumstances, and everyone who disagrees with them should not meddle in their own business!” . Ms. Albright, apparently, transfers this view to the duties of the Secretary of State: it is known that the bombing of Serbia and the Kosovo operation on the sidelines of the White House are called the “Madeleine War”, in fact, “Madame Secretary” and does not hide that she acted contrary to the opinion experts (of course, men) from the Pentagon .
Through acquaintance with the wife of Senator Edmund Muskie, and then with the Senator himself, “Madame Secretary” comes into big politics. In 1976, Muskie invites Ms. Albright to become his assistant in the Senate. In 1978, Ms. Albright goes on a permanent job at the US National Security Council to Zbigniew Brzezinski, where her job is to “liaise” between the Security Council and the Senate. On this occasion, “Madame Secretary” allows herself to joke a little. The chapter devoted to parting with Mask and the transition to work for Brzezinski is called “From pole to pole” .The translators of the memoirs explain in a note that “pole” with a small letter means “pole”, and with a capital letter “Pole”. Senator Muskie was a Pole by birth, like Brzezinski, hence the joke – “Madeleine Albright went from pole to pole” . They chastely keep silent about the fact that “pole” is also a “stick”, that is, the pun is obtained not with a double, but with a triple bottom, and at the same time it is very foul smelling. The fact that this joke, really worthy of a fence (the fourth meaning of the word “pole” is a fence post), not only entered the book, but also gave the title of one of the chapters, says a lot about the author – no less than the story of the “Caucasian Republic of Moldova “.
In general, the memoirs of “Mrs. Secretary” are full of jokes on the topic of sex, the object of which is herself and other representatives of the American leadership. Here is perhaps the most striking example: when “Madame Secretary” together with Hillary Clinton represented the United States at the 1995 World Women’s Congress in Beijing, a representative of the Chinese government asked them whether they knew “where the country of Lesbia is. “? Ms. Albright attributed the issue to China’s “isolation from the world,” although it was most likely an example of subtle Chinese irony.In general, Madeleine Albright was often put on seemingly excessive intimacy with the First Lady. “I was once asked if it was appropriate for the two of us to maintain such close contact?” She says. The “Madame Secretary” replied harshly, albeit somewhat ambiguously: “I am not Thomas Jefferson, and Hillary is not Martha Washington” .
But back to Brzezinski. Madeleine Albright first met him when he was teaching at Wellesley’s privileged women’s college. Brzezinski paid special attention to working with Madeleine, a college student, and the future “Madame Secretary” enthusiastically listened to his lectures.Later, Mrs. Albright became even closer to the “iron Zbig” thanks to her friendship with his wife Muska. The culmination of their relationship was a masquerade evening at the Brzezinski house, when Zbig and Madeleine portrayed a horse in a suit designed for two. Mr. Brzezinski was the “first pilot” and Mrs. Albright was the “second pilot” as she calls it . It can be said in another way: Brzezinski was the head part of the horse, and Madeleine Albright was his reliable rear. The situation, the description of which is not entirely appropriate in serious political literature, albeit semi-fiction in its genre, amazing in its vulgarity, is a very accurate metaphor for the relationship between Brzezinski, Albright and the American state.The “horse,” then, is American foreign policy. “Head” -Brzezinski set its course (and continues to correct it to this day), and “aft”, in the person of Madeleine Albright, follows this course, not looking around too much. A slippery topic, a risky metaphor, but Ms. Albright presents this story with pride, as the best proof of her friendship and political closeness with Brzezinski. The Russian proverb fits very well to this story, as well as to the memoirs in general: simplicity is worse than theft …
After Reagan’s victory in the presidential election, the entire team of President Jimmy Carter, including the “horse” pair Brzezinski-Albright, was forced to leave the White House. “It was time to think about the next pole, about the new Pole,” Ms. Albright comments on this change in her life, believing, apparently, that not all readers understood her joke the first time . For new impressions, she went to Poland, where she met the most charismatic “pole” of all times and peoples – Lech Walesa. Officially, she collected material for her doctoral dissertation in Poland, unofficially – established relations with the Polish opposition, most likely on the instructions of her patron Brzezinski .On her return from Poland (it was 1982), Ms. Albright was in for an unpleasant surprise. Her husband Joe, exhausted by his wife’s “polar” travels, demanded a divorce.
“Madame Secretary” devotes thirty-five pages of text to the circumstances of her divorce – she suffered, did not know what to do and, in the end, got a lover. His name was Barry Carter . But this is not the famous drug addict brother of President Jimmy Carter (poisoned with LSD and lost his mind ), this, apparently, is just a namesake.In any case, their relationship was short-lived (“he was much younger than me and wanted his children, but I had already gone through this stage” ), “madam secretary” quickly came to the conclusion that “there are only problems from men”, and decided to devote herself entirely to politics and the struggle for women’s rights. “When I became Secretary of State, I realized that … I could never have risen so high if I was married,” – thus ends Madeleine Albright’s chapter on the collapse of her family life .
1986-1990(the time of “perestroika” in the USSR and revolutions in Eastern Europe) Ms. Albright often visits Prague, communicates a lot with Czech dissidents, including Jiri Dienstbir, the future Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, and Vaclav Havel, the future president . She herself describes these trips as events of a private nature, however, it seems that in this case, “Madame Secretary” is being modest. There is every reason to believe that Ms. Albright’s visits to Poland and the Czech Republic and her contacts with the opposition were not private, but quite state in nature, although they were not entirely legal.Of course, the shadow of Brzezinski, the head half of the heavy draft horse of American geopolitics, loomed relentlessly next to Ms. Albright during her travels …
In 1992, she was already “among the first members of the Clinton team who came to the White House”  … February 1, 1993 Madeleine Albright takes over as US Representative to the UN. During Ms. Albright’s work at the UN, the International War Crimes Tribunal in the former Yugoslavia was created, the military actions against Iraq started by the previous administration continued, the bombing of Serb positions in Bosnia began, “peacekeeping missions” are being carried out in Rwanda and Somalia, representatives of Israel and The Palestinians sign the so-called “Declaration of Intent”, which marked the beginning of a direct dialogue between both sides with the active participation of the United States, the conflicting parties in Bosnia and Herzegovina conclude a peace treaty in Dayton.All these events take place with the direct participation, and sometimes (as in the case of the Hague Tribunal) and at the initiative of Madeleine Albright. December 5, 1996 President Clinton announces the appointment of Ms. Albright as Secretary of State for her second term as President. Ms. Albright becomes the first female Secretary of State in US history.

What Ms. Albright says about herself is completely different from the generally accepted ideas about the life of US Secretaries of State, be it Thomas Jefferson, George Marshall or Henry Kissinger.Here it is more appropriate to recall, rather, not the biographies of the famous predecessors of Madeleine Albright, but the comedy of the great Serbian playwright Branislav Nusic (1864-1938) “Madame Minister”.
This masterpiece of world drama tells how an ordinary official suddenly becomes a minister, and his wife, respectively, becomes a “minister”. The heroine of the comedy believes: if the husband is in the government, then she is also in the government, therefore, she can do world-wide affairs and is obliged to comply with “international standards.”To find out what it is, she hires a “consultant” – an antediluvian PR specialist, no less a swindler than his modern colleagues. The fossil PR-technologies specialist explains to “Mrs. Ministerial” that if she is “in the government”, she must, firstly, have a golden tooth, secondly, play bridge, thirdly, smoke, and fourthly, have lover. She also has to invite other “ministers” for coffee and ride around the city in a wheelchair .
There are no problems with a gold tooth, coffee, a stroller and smoking, it turns out to be more difficult to teach a “minister” to play bridge, but she refuses to start a lover with her husband alive.The PR man admonishes her: “It is not so important to have a lover for yourself as for society. You have to compromise yourself if you want to be a woman of the world  ”. “Madam Minister”, in the end, is forced to agree with his innocence.
Ms. Madeleine Albright’s mindset and the notions of “secularism” that characterized backward agrarian Serbia a hundred years ago are strikingly similar. First of all, it becomes clear where Mr. Barry Carter, the hero-lover, came from, and why he is needed at all.Well, how will readers, the level of development of many of whom are probably at the same (“Nushichevsky”, so to speak) level, will consider Ms. Albright a special “not secular”? We urgently need to “compromise”. Hence the school buddies who kissed Mrs. Albright in the back seat of the Oldsmobile.  Further on the points.
Golden Tooth: Brooches replace Mrs Albright, but unlike the tooth, brooches can be changed. During her state visit to Russia, Madeleine Albright wore two balloon-shaped brooches.This meant – “I (very strongly) believe in the rise and revival of Russia.” She “used a spider brooch when circumstances forced her to be insincere,” and a Capitol brooch when she wanted to hint at her lack of party biases. “When I met with the Russian Minister of Defense to discuss an anti-missile defense treaty, I put on a brooch in the shape of a rocket …”, Ms. Albright shares with us . Most importantly, a brooch, unlike a gold tooth, can be donated. “Madame Secretary” appreciates such gifts very much.Yitzhak Rabin’s wife Leah, for example, gave her an expensive brooch in the shape of a dove, and then also a necklace “in the same style”, attaching a note to it – “even doves need support” . Such a gift is a good guarantee that Madeleine Albright will always be a “dove” towards Israel and will always support him. Although, of course, this is not only about brooches.
“Coffee”: coffee as a social factor has played (and plays) a huge role in the life and career of Madeleine Albright. The book describes dozens of situations in which the presence of coffee is mandatory.Coffee is also important as a drink, the metabolism of Madeleine Albright and people of her circle is, in principle, impossible without coffee, “sometimes it seems to me that my body itself began to produce caffeine,” admits “Madame Secretary” . Also instructive is the case when President Clinton reassured Ms. Albright in a moment of mental weakness with the words: “Diplomacy is not instant coffee, Madeleine. It cannot be prepared instantly ”. It is not entirely clear what it means to “prepare diplomacy”, but the very idea of comprehending world politics through analogies with coffee is quite typical.
“Bridge”: Madeleine Albright is a passionate fan of bridge, he helps her to brighten up her leisure hours, she plays bridge with her friends, such as Barbra Streisand and Hillary Clinton . When describing prominent feminist activists or women politicians, Ms. Albright always mentions whether they play bridge, and if they do, how well . The women of the powerful Patterson-Guggenheim clan finally recognized Madeleine Albright for theirs, convinced of her qualities as a bridge player .
“Carriage” – progress has changed the means of transportation, but not the attitude of “ministers” of different calibers to them. Madeleine Albright got the most prestigious “stroller” in the United States and, possibly, in the world – the president’s plane, the so-called Air Force One, a luxury airliner that she used almost more often than the president himself, although she, according to her position, had “Your own plane” . Likewise, the Nushichevsk “ministerial” usurped the state-owned vehicle of her husband, the minister. But “Madame Secretary” surpassed “Madame Minister”.Having flown onto Air Force One, she demanded at her disposal the famous Doomsday plane – literally “doomsday plane” . This is no less than a flight command post from which the President, in the event of a nuclear war, can issue an order for a massive bombing of the enemy. This is indeed the main, and not only the most representative, aircraft of the United States. Flying on it aroused Ms. Albright’s “extraordinary admiration”, so strong that on one occasion she even tried to massage the pilot’s back .The “minister” Branislav Nusic could not even dream of such a thing.
“Smoking”: the so-called “smoking room” in all government agencies is the main place of communication and a generator of rumors. Actually, Nusic had this aspect in mind first of all. A complete analogue of what a “smoking room” for men is, for the White House (UN, State Department) employees is the place in which Mrs. Albright is photographed with Hillary Clinton. After reading the memoirs of “Madame Secretary” it becomes clear that the role of ladies’ public latrines in modern American politics is enormous: the “toilet” theme dominates Madeleine Albright and her book – and there is no place for natural human disgust.In the closet “Madame Secretary” hears about the assassination of John F. Kennedy; she accompanies Jimmy Carter’s elderly mother to the toilet; in the toilet, according to their memoirs, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair (?) finally agreed on a joint military operation against Yugoslavia  …
and in many personal motivations, Mrs. Madeleine Albright is a one hundred percent copy of “Madame Minister” Branislav Nusic, a comedic heroine, the wife of a ministerial official from a European backwater a century ago.And in some ways, Mrs. Albright even surpasses this character, whose claims have never gone beyond the Terazije district of Belgrade.

Slobodan Milosevic, Lord of the Flies
“A new world disorder” – this is how Ms. Albright herself characterizes the current international situation . In its presentation, US foreign policy looks really quite chaotic and chaotic.”Madame Secretary” gallops not only across Europe, but also across Asia, Africa, America. Only the Middle East and the Balkans are honored with a long stop in its “peace march”.
The most frequently used proper name in memoirs (after the author’s name, of course) is “Slobodan Milosevic”. Ms. Albright assured her that her deep dislike for Milosevic was formed during the events in Bosnia and Croatia in 1991-95. “The horrors of the Holocaust were not literally repeated during the conflict that raged in the Balkans in the early 1990s, but the parallels are clear … The context and scope were different, but the terminology was practically the same,” writes Madeleine Albright. And immediately explains: we are talking about “a wave of atrocities inspired by the President of Serbia Milosevic .” Let us examine all the components of this thesis.
First, the comparison of the events in Bosnia and Croatia with the Khlokost does not stand up to scrutiny. It is believed that the legend of the absolute identity of the situation in the Balkans and the extermination of Jews in Germany was launched by the American journalist Elie Wiesel in 1991 . The comparison is at least anti-historical. In one case, we have a genocide carried out by the German state against the Jews in Germany itself and in the occupied territories (a situation in which one side possessed the state apparatus, army, police, while the other could not oppose anything).In another case, we face a war proceeding in accordance with a principle formulated in German as “alle gegen alle” (in English “dog eat dog”, “a dog eats a dog”), and in Russian, everything is against everyone, when even the exact number of parties involved is incalculable. By and large, there are as many people as there are parties to the conflict, while no one is either impeccably right or absolutely guilty. All carried out “cleansings” and reprisals – and at the same time all “defended their homes”, killing people who also “defend their homes.”In our opinion, this situation has nothing to do with the Holocaust.
Second, Ms. Albright speaks of “terminology” that “has remained the same.” This refers to the terms “genocide”, “ethnic cleansing”, “concentration camp”. They forget that each side had its own camps for displaced persons – the Serbs, Croats and Muslims alike. Moreover, a “camp for displaced persons” is by no means the same as a Nazi concentration camp; it can just as well be compared with the concentration camps of a camp for Chechen refugees in Ingushetia.Undoubtedly, the conditions in which the refugees are found are far from perfect, but mass executions are not carried out there and the Tsiklon-B gas is not tested. Serbian camps for displaced persons, within the framework of the “Holocaust” stereotype, were first compared to Nazi concentration camps by CNN correspondent Christian Amanpour. She kept silent about the presence of exactly the same camps among Croats and Muslims. Note: Ms Amanpour is a close friend of Ms Albright and has been married since 1997 to Madeleine Albright’s permanent public relations secretary J.Rubin .
In general, there is an opinion that the information campaign on the “Holocaustization” of the Balkan crisis and the “Nazification” of Serbs – Bosnian, Croatian, Kosovar, Serbs from Serbia proper – came from a single center. French journalist Jacques Merlino in his book “Not the whole truth about Yugoslavia can be spoken out loud ” claims that in 1991-92. A news agency called Runder Finnis Global Public Affairs has contracted with the Croatian government and Bosnian Croat and Muslim leaders to “modify” Western media coverage of Bosnia and Croatia.Merlino, with documents in hand, proves that it was this firm, through well-known journalists and public figures, who launched the terms “Holocaust”, “genocide”, “concentration camp”, “ethnic cleansing”, and “mass rape” into a “heavy rotation”. In other words, the entire “terminology” of Mrs. Albright is what in the language of the tribe of PR people is called “order”.
And, finally, about the “wave of atrocities inspired by Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic.” Now in Serbia itself and beyond its borders, hardly anyone, except for people close to the Milosevic clan, will intercede for the “prisoner of The Hague.”There is, however, an opinion that Milosevic should not have been “slaughtered” by the West, but should have been tried in his native country, which he plunged into the abyss of the crisis and exposed NATO to attack. It is significant that some accuse Milosevic of the use of “excessive” force, while others, on the contrary, of criminal indecision in supporting the Bosnian and Croatian Serbs and suppressing the separatists in Kosovo. Both sides agree that, in principle, Milosevic got what he deserved. While we share this opinion, we are in no way seeking to whitewash Milosevic.But no matter how we treat him, the assertion of the “Madame Secretary” that the collapse of Yugoslavia and the bloody drama in Croatia and Bosnia were personally inspired by Milosevic is absolutely untrue.
After the death of Josip Broz Tito, the leadership of Yugoslavia was carried out, in accordance with the decision of the plenum of the Union of Communists of Yugoslavia, on a collegial basis. The state was ruled by the Presidium of the SFRY of eight people, one from each Yugoslav republic (there were six of them in total) and from the autonomous regions within Serbia (Kosovo and Vojvodina).From among the members of the Presidium, a Chairman was elected, who carried out direct leadership of the country, for a period of one year. Representatives of all republics and territories chaired in turn, the most important decisions were made by the Presidium collectively. By the beginning of the 90s, the “Great Serb nationalists”, led by Milosevic, spoke in the Presidium with only two out of eight voices – their own and the Montenegrin one.
This situation gave rise to anarchy and anarchy. In 1989, when Yugoslavia was ruled by the Slovene Janez Drnovsek, the Slovenian leadership announced its withdrawal from the Union of Communists of Yugoslavia and the creation of its own communist party, closing the borders for representatives of other Yugoslav republics and refusing to send Slovenian police officers to Kosovo, where before that order was maintained by the forces of all ” peoples and nationalities ”of Yugoslavia.In response, the Serbian authorities declared Slovenia an economic blockade. We emphasize: not the authorities of Yugoslavia, but the authorities of Serbia, in splendid isolation. Milosevic’s influence did not extend beyond Serbia, and the Slovene Drnovsek, naturally, did not support the proposal for all-Yugoslav sanctions. In 1991 Croatian Stipe Mesic became the chairman of the Presidium. Ante Markovic, a Croatian representative, had also become Prime Minister of Yugoslavia a year earlier. So, with two separatist-minded Croats in two of the most important posts in the state, Yugoslavia entered the final phase of the disintegration period.By the way, S. Mesic is now the President of the Republic of Croatia, and S. Milosevic is behind bars. You don’t need to be seven spans in your forehead to understand which of them the collapse of Yugoslavia played into the hands to a greater extent.
By and large, the only thing that can be reproached with Milosevic is his inaction amid growing anarchy, but he was paralyzed by the collective will of the Presidium. Dissolve the Milosevic Presidium, send troops into the capitals of the Union republics and proclaim yourself the sole heir of Tito – everything could have gone completely differently.Most likely – according to a much more bloody scenario. But no matter how Ms. Albright branded Milosevic, he was never a real tyrant, he did not have authority sufficient to seize power throughout Yugoslavia, and he understood this perfectly. But the reader will not find a word about the prehistory of the war in the Balkans in Madeleine Albright’s memoirs. In principle, she does not consider it necessary to look for any explanations for what happened, if there is Milosevic, who can be blamed for absolutely everything, fortunately, because of the bars, it is not so easy for him to say anything in his defense.One of the chapters of Ms. Albright’s book is called “It’s all about Milosevic” , the title can be translated as “Milosevic is to blame for everything.” “Madame Secretary” stands on this: “Milosevic was the instigator of three wars in the Balkans (against Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia) and in 1998 was ready to start a fourth – in Kosovo,” she says without batting an eye .
“The war in Slovenia” is, in principle, the same nonsense as the “Caucasian republic of Moldova”. The confrontation between the Yugoslav army and the Slovenian National Guard lasted just over a month (from June 25 to July 29, 1991.), the Yugoslav army lost forty-four people killed, the Slovenian militias three, there were no civilian casualties. It can hardly be called a war, at best – “local armed clashes.” The same with regard to the “instigator” of the wars in Croatia and Bosnia: here the local Serb population and soldiers of the Yugoslav army reacted to the nationalist statements of Franjo Tudjman and Alija Izetbegovic, to the creation of Croatian and Muslim armed militias; The first President of Croatia, Tudjman, according to Ms. Albright herself, is an “extremist” and “chauvinist” who ruled the country “with the help of corruption and violence” , but … in everything, Milosevic is blamed.This could be considered an obsessive mania if it were not for politics: four years later, the same PR construction (“Saddam is to blame for everything”) will be used in the attack on Iraq.
An interesting set of epithets that Mrs. Albright awards Milosevic: “cynical adventurer”, “clever swindler”, “born liar”, his “inhuman ambitions … bury hopes for peace and prosperity of mankind”, “negotiate with Milosevic without the use of force impossible ”,“ you cannot trust Milosevic ”; “We must emphasize over and over again – it’s all about Milosevic” .In this stream of images permeated with hatred, there is a certain understatement. Let’s add from ourselves – a liar and the father of lies, the prince of darkness, the lord of the flies, the ancient serpent, whose name is Satan … It seems to us that under such a characteristic “Madame Secretary” would also have signed without hesitation. We can say that Mrs. Albright found herself a little personal devil, inflamed hatred for him to the limit, and then brought down on him and his miniature (not the Soviet Union couple) “evil empire”, Serbia, all the military power of the United States.
Ms. Albright’s memoirs reveal the logic behind which it was Yugoslavia that became the first in a series of America’s “preventive” wars. Thus, comparing Kosovo with Chechnya and calling on the anger of the world community to the Russian army, “Madame Secretary” does not yet recommend applying the Kosovo experience to Chechnya. Not suitable as a whipping boy and China. China, like Russia, is too serious an adversary. North Korea (the “hermit country”) is also eliminated: North Korean missiles may not reach the Pacific coast of the United States, but they will certainly reach Seoul and Tokyo.For the same reason, Cuba is not suitable – the hundreds of kilometers separating the island from the American coast are unlikely to become a serious obstacle for Cuban saboteurs. In the Middle East, Palestinians and Israelis are intertwined in such a close, deadly embrace that aiming in one direction will surely hit the other; in addition, the interests of the Palestinians are defended by the Saudi royal family, with which America (so far) cannot afford to spoil relations. But Yugoslavia, located far from American shores, possessing neither nuclear weapons nor powerful patrons (Russia does not count, is head over heels bogged down in its problems), is an ideal target for a “small victorious war.”
It is appropriate to recall here also Mr. Josef Korbel. Father Madeleine Albright in emigration created for himself the image of an ideal Czechoslovakia, a kind of lost paradise – a figure of thought that is well known to us from the work of Russian emigrants (Nabokov’s Other Shores, for example). In the “ideal state” there was an ideal ruler, statesman without fear and reproach – Tomas Garrigue Masaryk. This state fell under the pressure of the “evil empire”, which was the USSR, but sooner or later it will definitely revive in its former glory and splendor.Madeleine Albright, with her quite sincere belief in the democracy of the American spill as a panacea for all mankind, seems to us no less idealistic than Mr. Korbel, with his faith in the “heavenly Czech Republic.” And her political idealism naturally leads to the construction of castles in the air; thus, the White House of the times of President Kennedy “Madame Secretary” several times compared with Camelot, the legendary castle of King Arthur .
In Madeleine Albright’s personal mythology, the White House is Camelot, Clinton is not King Arthur, of course, but his worthy successor, “courageous and decisive”, “smart and confident” , Serbia is the center of evil, the black castle of Terrabil, Milosevic is the lord of the flies, and Mrs. Albright herself is a “strange paladin” doomed to perform feats, to quote Gumilyov, “with a soul tormented by the alien.”The paladin is really strange, but Madeleine Albright does not notice her inconsistency with the knightly image. In general, from childhood, she tried on purely male roles, and nevertheless went on a crusade, literally embodying the ideals of that direction of American political thought, in which Henry Kissinger compared the United States to a “warrior-crusader” .
In fact, Madeleine Albright, the paladin who went on a crusade, appears exclusively in front of her inner gaze.If we proceed from the texture of the events described in the book, then we have before us the same, well-known to us, “Madame Secretary” or, if you like, “Madame Minister”. In parallel with the details of the military operation in Yugoslavia, we learn what Ms. Albright was wearing to meet with Milosevic, what kind of brooch she was wearing, what compliments the leaders of the Kosovar Albanians Ibrahim Rugova, Hashim Thaci and Adem Demachi gave her, what they fed the Serbian and the Albanian delegation in Rambouillet, where Igor Ivanov took it (to the “La Traviata” in the Bolshoi Theater), while they ate and drank (champagne and caviar), as Yevgeny Primakov kissed her.It is appropriate here to cite two other sayings of Ms. Albright: “after my divorce, I found solace in politics” and “I love my job because it allows me to satisfy my basic instincts” .
From the pages of a selection of photographs dedicated to the military operation in Yugoslavia, a “minister” in armor is looking at us. Such a Mrs. Albright was captured by the correspondents of the magazine “Time” – in the jacket of the pilots of the American Air Force, with an expression on the face, according to Madeleine Albright herself, “how most children can be frightened to death” .The article in the magazine was called “Madeleine’s War.” It is difficult to say what was more in Ms. Albright’s desire to wipe Milosevic off the face of the earth – the “noble rage” of Madeleine the paladin, the insatiable desire to please the father and Professor Brzezinski of the student Madeleine Korbel, or the “basic instinct” of Ms. operations, few in the US leadership, including the highest command personnel, understood why this war was needed at all – an indisputable fact.
National Security Adviser to the Clinton Administration Sandy Berger, before the bombing of Belgrade, officially, in the presence of the President, told Ms. Albright: “You cannot just talk about air strikes in the center of Europe.What targets are you going to hit? What will you do the next day after the bombing? .. It all looks like the ravings of a madman ”. In addition to Sandy Berger, US Secretary of Defense Bill Cohen and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Hugh Shelton spoke out against the military operation.  As a result, Berger, Cohen and Shelton, the three people responsible for the military aspect of US foreign policy, remained unconvinced, and Clinton, who was initially hesitant, leaned towards Madeleine Albright’s point of view (not least because he desperately needed a “small victorious war.” to save a reputation stained by zippergate).
There is no point in retelling Ms. Albright’s interpretation of the actual course of the military campaign; firstly, the American vision of these events is well known to all interested parties; secondly, most of the reviewers, both Russian and Western, considered this issue in the most detail. There are, however, several passages in Madeleine Albright’s memoirs that we simply cannot ignore. “The problems of Kosovo and the entire region could not have been resolved while Milosevic was in power” .“Milosevic’s diplomatic strategy was to shift responsibility to the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). No one has contributed to the survivability of this strategy more than the KLA itself ”. “The KLA was gaining strength and showed an unwillingness to compromise … in these conditions, Milosevic could not be accused of unwillingness to negotiate” . “Feeling confused by the first setbacks, we began to consider various options for further action. We discussed the possibility of supplying weapons to the KLA (italics mine – N.B.), but rejected this option as it would most likely lead to a split in the Alliance. We also analyzed the proposals for the partition of Kosovo, but rejected them … such a decision would hardly have been able to substantially smooth over ethnic divisions. We also thought about declaring the removal of Milosevic as a direct goal of the war, but did not go for it, since it was impossible to solve such a problem in a short time ”.
That is, all the talk of American officials about the equal responsibility of the Kosovo Serbs and the Kosovar Albanians is nothing more than a pose.If it were not for the European NATO members, “Mrs. Klintik” would simply have supported the KLA militants to remove the hated Milosevic. She confesses: “Long before the war in Kosovo, I got the administration of a policy aimed at removing Milosevic” . That is, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations in Rambouillet, the meetings between Albert Gore and Yevgeny Primakov, and even his own actions, Milosevic was doomed. Our “paladin” does not think about the “costs” of overthrowing the “doomed” – the destruction of a significant part of the Serbian economy, the victims of the bombing among the civilian Serbian and Albanian population, the crippled psyche of children, whose first memories are air raid raids and bomb shelters.He only mentions the accidentally hitting the “pinpoint bombardment” of the Chinese embassy , as if nothing else had been destroyed in Belgrade, and the only victims – Slobodan Milosevic and three dead Chinese diplomats! But in great detail – about how immediately after the bomb hit the Chinese embassy “Madame Secretary” went to the wedding of her public relations assistant Kitty Bartels . This is not a “dances on bones”, not a “feast in time of plague” (weak, worn out clichés): the historian of the future will need different, new words to describe the “Madeleine war”.
There is an episode in her memoirs in which Mrs. Albright, at the end of the military campaign, meets with Bishop Artemy (Radosavlevich) in the Gracanitsa monastery in Kosovo. He shows her photographs of destroyed Orthodox churches and expresses fear that all Serbs will apparently have to leave Kosovo. “I told him,” writes Ms. Albright, “that the result was the opposite of what I expected and assured him that the NATO and UN peacekeeping forces would do everything to make his people feel safe.Vladyka noted that if the Serbs are driven out of the region, Milosevic will be right. I agreed with him and said that the participation of the Kosovo Serbs in the UN attempt to create self-government institutions is of great importance ”. If without stylistic subtleties, – “madam secretary” simply chatted about. Artemia. She explains everything to her American readers simply and clearly, using an image worthy of films about Frankenstein: “Kosovo, which many Serbs regard as the heart of their nation, has long been rooted in someone else’s body.” 
Madeleine Albright’s father, Mr. Josef Korbel, has cheated on his daughter for years. Now the daughter of Mr. Korbel, with her almost religious attitude towards the American state and the mission of America, lies in the eyes of the hierarch of the Church, promising him help in what she is not going to help at all. Her motto is “we tell everyone what he wants to hear, and we advise not to believe what he learns from someone else. So far, this tactic is working! ”. Another US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, called it “the triumph of faith over experience” .Read: the triumph of lies over truth.
Madeleine Albright’s book ideally falls under the term “biopic” invented by Hollywood producers – a large-scale costume picture of a biographical genre, worked out for a mass audience and mass distribution. The comparison is all the more pertinent because the book was published by the publishing house “MIRAMAX Books” – a division of the MIRAMAX film concern, which makes films of the movie bully Quentin Tarantino. Of course, both the owners of the company, the Weinstein brothers, and their pet Tarantino are zealous supporters of the Democratic Party and fans of Madeleine Albright.There is a joke on the Internet: The Weinsteins not only published Ms. Albright’s memoirs, but also bought the rights to film her book. The film will, of course, be shot by Tarantino, whose scandalous picture “Kill Bill” is a warm-up before the adaptation of the memoirs “Madame Secretary”. The alleged title of Madeleine Albright’s film biography is Kill Slobo.
Any successful product of the entertainment industry, according to the unwritten laws of this market, must have a continuation. It may not come to the film adaptation of Madeleine Albright’s memoirs, but there will be a continuation.“Taking the oath of office as Secretary of State is something that I am willing to do every day in my life. If only you could somehow save this moment and relive it over and over again! ”- exclaimed Madeleine Albright. This is an obvious bid for a sequel. Even if Ms. Albright is not re-appointed to the post of US Secretary of State, she will be required to be present in some form in the next Democratic administration. “Sometimes people ask me how I would like to be remembered.I answer that I do not want to be remembered; I’m still here, ”writes“ Madame Secretary ”. The same ends and “Madam Minisser” Nushich: “Go,” says the heroine, “and don’t you dare, damn it, slander me. After all, who knows, not today or tomorrow I can again become a minister! ” … Let us take the liberty of slandering our “minister” a little more, in anticipation of the victory of the Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, predicted by many political scientists.
In detail, with the defiantly vulgar taste that is the hallmark of “Madame Secretary”, the memoir tells how, after her appointment as US Secretary of State, she signed autographs for passengers on the Washington-New York express.“… I walked down the aisle – they hugged me, kissed me, gave me newspapers so that I could put autographs on them. My journey by train turned out to be very long ”- the place of Washington newspapers was taken by Boston, then Philadelphia and, finally, New York. The translators of the memoirs, themselves, it seems, were dumbfounded by these “going to the people”, explain: “the total duration of the train journey is three hours. The train stops at Boston and Philadelphia. That is, the author gave autographs for all three hours of the journey. ”
One of the chapters of the book is called “Until Death Do Us Part”, it is devoted, however, not to politics, but to Mrs. Albright’s divorce from her husband.But a person who can sign autographs to passengers on a full-speed express train for three hours in a row will really only be separated from public politics by death. This is by no means a wish, but just a statement of fact. The fact, however, unfortunate …

Yushchenko asks the US for help
On Thursday, a very interesting letter written by presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko was published on the website of the monthly Vslukh magazine … This letter is addressed to a very influential political figure in the United States – Madeleine Albright. She served as secretary of state in the administration of President Bill Clinton.
As the newspaper notes, the letter very clearly and unequivocally reflects the hopes and hopes of Mr. Yushchenko.However, “the editorial board does not claim that we (ended up) with a copy of the original document. Although the style of the letter and the very nature of the appeal give reason to believe that the document is still not an invention of political strategists and not a development of the Russian-Ukrainian special services.”
The letter is dated October 29, two days after this date the first round of the election campaign in Ukraine began. Dni.Ru cites the full text of the letter:
“To Her Excellency Madeleine Albright.
National Institute for Democracy.
As you know, a week is left before the presidential elections in Ukraine. All sorts of dirty tricks were used to stop us. Nevertheless, we are doing everything to keep fighting. But sometimes we need help. And I am writing to ask you for help.
A few weeks ago, the Chief Military Prosecutor of the Russian Federation sent a request to Interpol to issue an international arrest warrant for Yulia Timoshenko, my fellow member of the opposition movement, so that she could be interrogated in Moscow.But the Interpol Charter states that Interpol cannot participate (I quote): “in any interference in activities of a political, military, religious or racial nature.” It seems more than a coincidence that the charges were made at the exact moment I was recovering from the poisoning. In fact, this is a deliberate attempt to decapitate the political opposition. What could be more harmful than “politicized legal prosecution?”
Moreover, Interpol should be aware that last year the Moscow Military Court acquitted two officers of the Russian Defense Ministry on charges of abuse of office and bribery in a deal with a company that Yulia previously owned.The same charges are being leveled now, despite the fact that the Russian Supreme Court acquitted her last year. These facts should also show the leadership of Interpol that the Russian accusations are politically motivated.
Every day of silence by Interpol may look like agreement with the accusation of the Russian Chief Military Prosecutor and helps the opponents of Ukrainian democracy. I want to break this silence and show, at least to Interpol, that the timing of the request from Russia makes it look like a political one.
I would like to ask you to speak with your former colleague in the Clinton administration, Mr. Ronald Noble, who is the Secretary General of Interpol. I am not asking you to tell him what needs to be done so that he “hush up” the case. All I ask is that he play a little bit of classic American “fair play” and personally analyze the case. If after that he decides that the Russian request is politically motivated, I am sure that he will act honestly.
I am sorry that I am writing to you on this matter.I would prefer to write to you after the election victory on October 31st. But your support can be of great help to us in 11 days.
With warmest wishes, Viktor Yushchenko. “
We do not know whether Ms. Albright discussed this problem with the Secretary General of Interpol and, if so, what decision they came to. However, at one time, Tymoshenko herself was also going
Back in September, she planned to write a letter to the organization explaining that the case against her is political repression, “the goal of which is to expel her from the team of presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko and create a negative image of the opposition.”Judging by Yushchenko’s letter, Tymoshenko’s appeal remained unanswered.
But more interesting, of course, is the very fact of Yushchenko’s appeal for help. And also the mysterious “in 11 days”, which he mentioned at the end of the letter. What did Yushchenko mean? What was planned for November 9?
This remains unknown.

“There is too much wealth in Russia for one country”
In the Czech Republic, Euro-Atlantic anti-Russian sentiments are widespread, instilled by the West, especially the United States. According to Lubomir Man in an article for the Czech publication Haló noviny, the source of hatred towards Russia is quite easy to establish if one compares the statements of American politicians with those of Goebbels.
According to Man, the Czech Republic is prohibited from having good relations with Russia. She cannot buy a vaccine against coronavirus in Russia for the reason that it is made by Russians, and the collective West prohibits buying Russian. Prague is rejoicing at the election of a new American president, who declares a tougher struggle with Russia, while simultaneously purchasing American weapons that the country does not need. The Czech Republic supports the anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the United States for choosing the residents of Crimea by constitutional means to return to Russia, because the West demands it.
The author is convinced that the government of the country will continue to support the anti-Russian course artificially imposed by the United States and its partners.
Man writes that Euro-Atlantic official anti-Russian sentiments have “spread monstrously” in the Czech Republic. Where the sources of the West’s hatred for Russia come from, according to him, is not difficult to guess, especially if we recall the radio speech of the Minister of Propaganda Goebbels on June 22, 1941, that is, on the day of the Nazi Germany attack on the USSR.
This is not a war for the throne and altar. This is a war for grain, iron, ore, coal and raw materials. This is a war for a well-fed table for the German worker
– Goebbels declared in 1941.
And these are two statements by Madeleine Albright, US Secretary of State in 1997-2001:
Russia has too much natural resources. This is unfair
– she said for the first time
Russia has too much wealth for one country
– Albright said in the second.
Compare the statements of Goebbels and Albright, and you will see the real reason for the West’s hatred of Russia, writes Man.
That’s the reason for you! Under the Reich it was the same as now
– he added.

Why in the USA a bachelor, having left the college, is ready to work in production, while in Russia they still treat him as a “undergraduate” specialist? The point is not only the pressure of the prevailing opinion, but also the real degree of readiness for independent activity, the competencies with which graduated engineers leave the walls of the educational institution.And competencies depend on how the person was taught.Photo: http://beng-sk.tpu.ru/
One of the projects of the Skolkovo Foundation – “Bachelor Engineering” (BEng-RU ) . It is coordinated by TPU – Tomsk Polytechnic University. In May, BEng-RU participants got acquainted with the American experience of training engineers with their own eyes – they visited three extraordinary educational institutions where future engineers are trained in the Boston area and took part in a two-day seminar.Director of the Center for International Educational Programs of TPU Oleg Boev and Vice-Rector for Educational and International Activities of TPU Professor Alexander Chuchalin shared their impressions of this trip with the correspondent of Poisk.
In the Russian list of areas and specialties, a little over a hundred positions refer to engineering and technology. Within the framework of the project, which will be discussed, the task is to modernize five – in the areas that the Government of the Russian Federation has identified as the main ones for Skolkovo: information technology, energy, nuclear energy, biomedicine, aerospace sciences.Six Russian universities are participating in this project, all with the status of “national research”: TPU, Samara Aerospace, Higher School of Economics, MEPhI, MISiS, ITMO, as well as MIPT. The main objective of the first stage of the BEng project is to analyze how engineers are trained in these five areas at the world’s leading universities.
TPU held an international seminar “Improving Bachelor’s Programs in Engineering and Technology” in Boston, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).Why there? First, Oleg Boev explains, because
there are close ties between Skolkovo and MIT, and secondly, this university was one of the initiators of the CDIO project.
The consortium of universities, which aims to make engineering education meet the most modern requirements, includes about fifty universities around the world. At that time, only Tomsk Polytechnic was part of Russia (during the preparation of the article, the Astrakhan State University joined).
The name CDIO itself encodes the whole philosophy of engineering education. Graduates of higher education institutions should be ready for an integrated engineering activity, which consists of conceiving (stage of reflection and planning), designing (design stage), implementing (production stage), operating (application stage).
Tomsk Polytechnic University in the CDIO project prepares educational programs in three areas: chemical technology, energy, mechanical engineering.
In addition to representatives of universities – BEng-RU participants, specialists from leading industrial corporations of Russia came to the seminar: Rosatom, STADA and others. There are about 60 people in total, 15 of whom are invited Russian and foreign experts, representatives of European and American societies for engineering education, as well as organizations from the USA, Canada, and Europe that are involved in the accreditation of educational programs in this area.
The first section discussed trends in the development of engineering education in the world, the requirements for the competencies of specialists and programs.In the second, representatives of accreditation organizations expressed their views on the competencies of engineers. The third was devoted to the interaction of universities with industry. The fourth is the CDIO initiative and engineering training best practices. The purpose of this event, according to Boev, is to convey to the Russian participants how the competencies of a graduate are formed and how to formulate them correctly, what requirements are imposed on them by employers and accreditation services.
A lot of time was devoted to acquainting the participants of the seminar with the work of MIT departments.Representatives of Russian universities went to laboratories whose work is related to computer science, energy, and other “Skolkovo” areas. And everywhere a lot of attention was paid to how educational programs are structured.
How does the training of future engineers in the United States differ from that in Russia? What impressed the Russians the most?
Professor Chuchalin notes that in our country, training programs have always contained a practical part – industrial practice.There is no such thing in the USA. The entire educational process is concentrated at the university. Formally. And informally, students participate in a wide variety of research work. Often during vacations. That is, it is, as it were, optional. As if – because in fact practically all future engineers are involved in this activity. Nobody forces anyone, young people themselves offer options for the topics of their research. For example, the guys from Bangladesh, on their own initiative, modernized a rickshaw bike cart.
– Against this background, our Russian peculiarity is especially clearly seen: we invent, then we enter the market with an invention, and for some reason it turns out to be of no use to anyone, says the vice-rector. – The point is not even that the students of the American university improved the design. And the fact is that, while resting at home on vacation, they noticed that the carts often fail, interviewed the rickshaws – what is inconvenient, what breaks more often, made measurements and, in accordance with the data obtained, made changes to its design.To summarize, we can say that in the United States, students study the requirements for the professional qualities of an engineer not in classrooms, but in real life. They are trained from the first year to work that way. Don’t just write formulas. This is what we are missing!
… A delegation of Russian teachers also visited Olin College . It is a young (first graduated in 2010) private engineering university implementing undergraduate programs. There are only 300 students in the college.But his programs were ranked 6th (Engineering) and 9th (Electrical / Electronic / Communication) in the ranking of the best programs in the United States among universities that do not offer PhD programs. The college is renowned for its small class size, student financial support and its success in project-based learning.
– We often say: what can you demand from a first-year student? Yes, you can do a lot! – exclaims Chuchalin. – He must understand what the department is working on, gradually get involved in the research process, generate his ideas.At Olin College, we saw that several research groups are sometimes organized under one project. In a sense, students even compete with each other. They learn to put forward ideas, gather a team for their development, work in this team …
We at TPU have long been convinced that there are, as they say in Odessa, two big differences – how they prepare for engineering activities abroad and in Russia. Our students are introduced to research work somewhere from the third year. And physics, mathematics, chemistry are taught in the first years of study at the university.And only then they begin to use this knowledge in the design of real objects. Losing time …
And in the USA they start teaching engineering, engineering creativity from the first year. Students still do not know the depths of fundamental sciences, but they are already being taught to future engineering activities – and thus they are killing two birds with one stone. On the one hand, the earlier they start, the sooner they will understand what awaits them. On the other hand, they will be more motivated to study physics and mathematics. And knowledge will fit where it is needed, and not just pile up in the head, like hummocks.
It was a pleasure to make sure we are on the right track. At TPU, starting from the next academic year, the subject “Introduction to Engineering” will be compulsory for all students. In the first year (36 hours of lectures), they will be told about its features and tasks. And then, for three semesters, “Creative Project” will go. From the third year of study, as before, the introduction to scientific research work will begin.
Vivid impressions, say my interlocutors, remained from the organization of laboratory work in American universities.University laboratories are literally crammed with the most diverse, including very complex, equipment. Students do the work on their own. We have laboratory assistants, foremen, the teacher is sure to follow the course of the lesson. There, the laboratory is open 24 hours a day, students come when it is convenient for them – even at two in the morning. And they work.
– And if something is broken? – I can not resist the question.
– Here! Our logic! Or will they steal, right? We also asked about it, – the vice-rector grins.- And they explained to us that the students undergo a full instruction. Once. Everyone signs that they listened to it. After that, if something happens to the student, he is to blame. And if he breaks something – too. He was trained in the safe operation of equipment, and no one else is watching him. This immediately fosters responsibility. The student is treated like an adult. From the first year. And we lead them by the handle until the fourth. And then we wonder: why do they leave the university and do not know how to do anything on their own.
… Another educational institution that Russian teachers met, is Wellesley College, a women’s liberal arts college located in Wellesley, Massachusetts , 12 miles west of Boston. It is old – opened in 1875, about 2,400 female students study in it. In groups – 12-14 people, the ratio of the number of trainees to the number of teachers is approximately nine to one.
The mission of the university is “to provide an excellent education in the field of liberal arts for women who will have an impact in the world.”Over the years, Wellesley College has graduated more women with significant career success than any other institution. Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright studied there, in particular. The college education is mostly liberal, but in recent years there has also been an introduction to “engineering”, an introductory course so that those interested can enroll in more advanced courses at nearby colleges. Wellesley College works closely and provides joint program opportunities for female students with Babson College, Olin College, MIT and Brandeis University.This practice has been around for a long time.
And again a purely Russian question emerges: how is this regulated financially?
And the answer sounds unexpected for a modern Russian person: no way. Nobody pays anyone anything. Indeed, what difference does it make to a teacher how many people listen to him?
– Do you know what else caught my eye this time? That we have “capitalism squared” in comparison with them, – notes A. Chuchalin. – In Russia, they try to measure everything in money.In a business environment, okay, where the main goal is to make a profit, it should be so, but in universities … In the United States, we have never heard from university workers about the commercial value of new educational programs. Why are they developing them? To solve the problems of humanity, to make life easier for people.
… TPU plans to hold the next seminar for the project participants in autumn in Moscow. It will be attended by university professors, who will have to design new educational programs in five “Skolkovo” areas.
