    Zhaneevets in historical geography of the Northwest Caucasus (The 4-6th centuries)

    This study aims to explore resettlement of a considerable part of Sanigs (the people well-known according to messages of antique writers – B.B.) from the areas of Transcaucasia to northwest spurs of Greater Caucasus Range. Judging by data of the Pevtingerovy map, it took place in the late 3rd and in the early 4th centuries. The part of Sanigs which remained on the former place created in the period of the Middle Ages the Zikhsky separate community under the name of Sadz (Dzhikhs, Dzhigits – B.B.), which took the important place in the Circassian-Abkhazian contact zone. Sanigs who moved into the North Caucasus formed Zikhiya’s part under a name of Zhaneevets and occupied at first the territory in the neighborhood of Nikopsis and Dzhubga. Then they advanced to the northwest to Tsemez and Abrau-Durso, having pushed the Goths and Huns out to Kuban and Don. At that time, the Zhane River to the south of modern Gelendzhik received its name which was given by Sanigs in the Western Circassia. Attention is paid to a ceremony of cremation, which was introduced into the North Caucasus, most likely, by Sanigs and practiced in these areas by the Goths as well.

    Decisive boundary on the way to the Great victory: towards the 75th anniversary of the Kursk fight

    The Kursk fight was one of the brightest pages of the Great Patriotic War. It has no analogs in world history in degree of persistence and bitterness of fight, participation in it of military equipment and human resources. Nearly 300 divisions, more than 4 million people, 69000 pieces of artillery and mortars, over 13000 tanks and SAU, and about 12 thousand warplanes on both sides participated in it. Authors fairly call the Kursk fight a culmination point not only of the Great Patriotic War, but also of the whole World War II. This battle in essence was the last attempt of the enemy to develop strategic approach on east front and then to pass to defensive strategy. Authors note that the Red Army and the Soviet military chiefs did not give the enemy an opportunity of these plans coming true. But this victory during which 30 perfect divisions of the enemy, including seven tank ones, were destroyed, came to our army at a price of heavy losses: these are 863000 people, including 254000 irrevocable, that is nearly 4 times more than losses of Hitlerites. And, nevertheless, despite big losses, the Soviet part became the winner in this bloody fight and finally secured a strategic initiative.

    Reputation control through a motivation prism

    In the paper, we investigate reputation through a prism of motivation. We consider reputation as set of the social estimated ideas of the subject or object of activity created on the basis of objective parameters. It is extremely important to understand what affects behavior of employees. We considered the motivators affecting reputation of employees of the public civil service. One thousand and fourty seven municipal serving men and women with different length of service and age participated in this research. We used a sociometry method for collecting cumulative social estimated representations of employees about each other and for assessment of social interaction in the organization. To assess labor motivation we used STM technique intended for identification of motivators. Two hundred and twenty seven heads of different ranks were assessment objects in sociometry. Based on results of sociometry, two groups of heads with high and low reputation were allocated. The obtained results allow us to draw a conclusion that there are differences in motivational structure at employees with the different level of reputation and that the reputation can be controlled.

    Interpretation problem of culture in the conditions of civilization contradictions

    The paper is dedicated to refraction of a phenomenon of culture in the western philosophical thinking. The idea is expressed that deformations of attitudes of the western civilization concerning the person and the nature are depicted in widespread philosophical concepts of culture. The author gives justification of this idea based on the example of the activity approach to culture. The publication shows that orientation of culture as to transformation of the nature rightfully leads to the crisis phenomena in life of the countries making economic vanguard of the mankind. Besides, the author examines the axiological approach as an alternative to the activity and similar approaches. The axiological approach has the methodological potential for adequate understanding of the phenomenon of culture making it possible to reduce sharpness of global problems and other contradictions in development of the western civilization.
