MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AND ORTHODOX TRADITIONS IN RUSSIA

Bogdan Ershov & Vladimir Fursov
The article examines the participation and assistance of the Orthodox Church in solving problems that allowed to give a scientific justification for the cooperation of health care and Orthodox religious institutions, to determine their role in the historical context and structure of modern healthcare in Russia. The article presents an algorithm for organizing sisters of mercy, their system of upbringing. Particular attention is given to the possibility of teaching the course "Foundations of Orthodox Culture"...

CHARITY OF THE RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH DURING THE RUSSO-TURKISH WAR (1877-1878)

Aleksey Drobyshev
The article is devoted to the study of the charitable activities of the Russian Orthodox Church during the Russian-Turkish war (1877-1878). During the war years, the Church always took an active part in protecting the state from enemies. Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878 is one of the most significant examples of such interaction. It should be noted that this military campaign was of particular importance for the Russian Orthodox Church, since its goal was to liberate...

METHODOLOGY OF HISTORICAL AND ECONOMIC RESEARCH: A RETROSPECTIVE VIEW

Bogdan Ershov & Igor Ashmarov
This data set represents an analysis of historical and economic methods of production management in modern Russia. The need to generalize the accumulated theoretical and empirical material, to find new approaches to the evaluation of modern production, to study both general and specific laws of the process of transforming the structure of social production is shown. The features of this process in countries with different levels of economic development are studied. Particular attention is paid...

Metadata for a survey investigating motivations for meat-free diets in Sweden

Luisa F. Suárez Rozo & Kimberly Nicholas
The health and environmental impacts of meat-based diets are increasingly recognized as sustainability issues, but the motivations behind behaviour change driving vegetarian diets have generally been studied via a limited set of motivations and are therefore poorly understood. To examine such motivations, we designed a survey measuring 20 different possible motivations, using 77 statements drawn from the existing Food Choice Questionnaire as well as diverse literature on environmental protection, animal welfare, social norms, and pro-environmental...

Fitting Dynamic Regression Models to Seshat Data - Supplemental Material

Peter Turchin
This article presents a general statistical approach suitable for the analysis of time-resolved (time-series) cross-cultural data. The goal is to test theories about the evolutionary processes that generate cultural change. This approach allows us to investigate the effects of predictor variables (proxying for theory-suggested mechanisms), while controlling for spatial diffusion and autocorrelations due to shared cultural history (known as Galton’s Problem). It also fits autoregressive terms to account for serial correlations in the data and...

Methane emissions from contrasting production regions within Alberta, Canada: Implications under new federal methane regulations

Elizabeth O'Connell, David Risk, Emmaline Atherton, Evelise Bourlon, Chelsea Fougère, Jennifer Baillie & David Lowry
Aggressive reductions of oil and gas sector methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have been proposed in Canada. Few large-scale measurement studies have been conducted to confirm a baseline. This study used a vehicle-based gas monitoring system to measure fugitive and vented gas emissions across Lloydminster (heavy oil), Peace River (heavy oil/bitumen), and Medicine Hat (conventional gas) developments in Alberta, Canada. Four gases (CO2, CH4, H2S, C2H6), and isotopic δ13CCH4 were recorded in real-time at 1...
