Conversation with Edward Crawley and Susan Hockfield

PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Good afternoon, everyone,
I want to once again congratulate you all on the documents that have been signed. I think this is useful for the Russian side, and I hope that it will be beneficial for MIT as well, especially since there have been periods in the history of cooperation between Russian institutions and MIT when we also helped our partners and friends. (Speaking to Viktor Vekselberg.) I know that you have a document demonstrating this.
PRESIDENT OF THE FUND FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE CENTRE OF RESEARCH AND COMMERCIALISING OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES VIKTOR VEKSELBERG: I do.
Ms Hockfield, Mr President,
I would like to present our partners with a historic letter that was written in 1876 by Mr John Daniel Runkle, then-president of MIT, after visiting the Moscow Imperial Technical School.
In essence, this letter thanks the director of the Russian institute, Viktor Della-Vos, because the organisational processes of the educational technological process he saw there would form the basis of MIT’s operation, since he felt they were entirely correct. Thus, the principles you acquired in Russia over one hundred years ago are now being returned to Russia in a new way, and speak to our extensive, fascinating reciprocity.
PRESIDENT OF MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY SUSAN HOCKFIELD: Thank you very much, this is a very keen reminder that our collaboration goes back over a hundred years and let’s hope it goes forward for another hundred years. Thank you.

Former Argentine naval officer Alfredo Astiz has been jailed for life for crimes against humanity during military rule in 1976-83.
Ten other former military and police officers were also given life sentences for crimes against humanity.
Several others were given shorter sentences.
All worked at the Naval Mechanical School in Buenos Aires - known as Esma - which was the biggest secret torture and killing centre set up by the military during what became known as the "Dirty War".

A number of laborers held a demonstration outside the Swiss Embassy in Tehran on Wednesday to express solidarity with the protests on Wall Street.
Iran and the United States do not have diplomatic relations, and the Swiss Embassy in Tehran hosts the U.S. Interests Section in Iran.
They also called on the U.S. government to restore the rights of the country’s laborers and the poor.
Salehi [<] to visit Libya soon
Tehran:13:39 , 10/26/2011http://www.mehrnews.com/en/newsdetail.a ... ID=1444292
Salehi’s visit to Libya will be the first of its kind by an Iranian official since the downfall of the Gaddafi regime.
It seems that the fate of Imam Musa al-Sadr will feature highly in Salehi’s talks with the new Libyan leadership. Imam Musa al-Sadr, an Iranian-born Shia cleric, vanished without a trace in Libya in 1978.
