Barely six months after the Championship of the Russian Federation for jigging, spinning from boats (Samara, September), and representatives of the sports gambling the most fish fishing living in Belgorod earth gathered at the regional open championship on catching predatory fish with rowing boats.
Participants of these events took the ancient Russian city of Stary Oskol, where the local reservoir experienced the fate of 14 pairs of master spinnings not only native of Belgorod region, but also the neighboring Kursk.
The tournament was held in the third week of November. This factor could not have an effect on the weather: high winds caused high waves that affected the results of the boat crews.
Throughout the championship – on the conditions of the competition time of the meeting organizers is limited to six hours – the guys showed particular perseverance in overcoming the weather troubles.
To catch fish, too, there were severe restrictions. Dimensions pike and zander should not exceed 32 and 38 cm, respectively. Weather adjustments have led to the fact that none of the participants of the championship trophy is not especially rich catch. The record was a perch, which turned out to be the weight of 1.2 kg.
Lucky it was the owner of the party. representing the host country. The efforts and luck champion were awarded special prize.
However, fortune smiled not only to him but also companion team “Piranha”. The crew of the residents of Stary Oskol won the Open Championship in sports fishing with rowing boats Belgorod region. The total achievement of this team was 4.5 kg of prey fish.
In the first decade of September, on the same teams participating in the tournament were 11, three men in each, but the catch was generally higher than in late autumn. However, if the weather is also not particularly favored competing fishermen. Continue reading

Sensational regeneration of brain inhabitants of the deep sea discovered by an international team of scientists
Amazing ability to regenerate structures of the brain, scientists have found a fairly primitive, as previously thought, the deep sea dweller. Animal with exceptional properties and the organization of the nervous system called the sea ctenophore (Ctenophora).
Externally, they are very similar to jellyfish, and this similarity was the reason that the zoologists have long believed them to belong to the class of jellyfish. Only much later ctenophores identified in a special class with 6 units of its representatives. Comb jellies – it’s much more difficult to organized beings predators that hunting requires quite perfect the nervous system, which gives the ability to the good orientation and coordination.
These amazing marine life studied a group of scientists from the Universities of Florida and Washington, has joined forces with Russian biologists from the Institute of General Genetics, Russian Academy of Sciences. In subsequent phases are connected to the study of other scientists from Russia, USA, England and Holland.
It turned out that the comb jelly is a feature quite different than that of other members of the animal kingdom, the evolutionary path of development of the nervous system.
As the Leonid Moroz, leader of the group of scientists who conducted the study the University of Florida, Continue reading
