The amended law on the language which took effect in Estonia on Thursday envisages that the Estonian language is an official language which shall be spoken not only by state employees and private personnel offering services to the population, but by representatives of commercial and non-commercial structures and entrepreneurs doing business on their own.

The requirements for applicants passing a qualification test are to be established by the government. Qualification exams are not to be taken by people who were educated in secondary schools in Estonia even if the education was not completed, i. e. people who are ethnic Estonians, and a few representatives of the Russian-speaking population.

The overall Russian -speaking population needs at least 40 million crones or over three million dollars to pass a qualification test. Payments are charged in the form of a fee worth 150 crones charged each non-ethnic Estonian for a qualification test, plus 50 crones extra charged for a certificate issued to the applicant who has passed the qualification test.

These amendments debated by the Estonian parliament in February were criticised by deputies of the Russian faction only. MP Sergei Ivanov believes that the amendments to the law on the language give way to arbitrariness among officialdom.

The minority of the Russian parliamentarians defeated during the vote appealed to Estonian President Lennart Meri, asking not to enact the law since it offers a loophole for discrimination on language grounds and actually,imposes a ban on jobs for people who do not have a good enough command of the Estonian language.

Nevertheless, the parliamentary majority and the president have ignored both these recommendations and a negative opinion of the suggested amendments expressed by the OSCE Commissioner for affairs of ethnic minorities, Max Van der Stoel.

According to our hypothesis, the conversion of electrons and positrons into each other occurs by replacing the charge motion vector with the opposite vector. This is explained by the fact that all elements of the electron's magnetoelectric system are opposite to all elements of the positron's magnetoelectric system. And this opposite is determined by the vector of their movement in space. Therefore, it is only necessary to change the motion vector of one of the charges to the opposite vector, so immediately this charge turns into its antipode.

This video https://youtu.be/MJeWOcqqrKo demonstrates alternating current, where sinusoids are formed by positive and negative half waves; and rectified current formed by only positive half-waves. Electric current is the orderly movement of charged particles. But in metallic conductors, in addition to mobile free electrons and stationary ions, there are no other charges. So what kind of talk does this video show?

The article gives my short life story with a list of my discoveries. May the terrible moralists forgive me, I call these hypotheses discoveries because their logical connectedness and conformity with the materialistic dialectic of thinking does not allow to doubt that truth has been found here.

I wrote this article when I was 33, and I, who did not understand anything in physics, but who had logical thinking, were outraged by those alogisms and paradoxes that flowed from Einstein’s logic of relativity theory. But it was criticism at the level of emotions. Now, when I began to think a little bit in physics, and when I discovered the law of the difference of gravitational potentials, and based on it I built a five-dimensional frame of reference, it is now possible to prove the inaccuracy of Einstein’s theory of relativity at the level of physical laws.

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov, studying the physiological process, which he called the conditioned reflex, suggested that this process is the basis for the formation of mental reactions of all living organisms, including the thinking process of a human of a modern species. But, in our opinion, the human thinking process of the modern species is based not on one, but on four types of conditioned reflexes.

In addition to the valence, which connects the atoms into molecules, there is a valence that connects the nucleons to each other.

The world ether is filled with gravitons. A positron rotating in the ether twists around itself graviton spheres, which increase its mass and turn it into a proton. The graviton spheres of the positron attract an electron to it, giving rise to a neutron. A proton, having lost some of its rotational energy, with its atomic graviton spheres - (unlike nuclear graviton spheres, which attract an electron to a proton, turning it into a neutron) - attracts an electron to itself, turning it into a hydrogen atom.
