Project Tuva or Bust: How Microsoft’s Spin on Feynman Could Change the Way We Learn

“I don’t know what’s the matter with people: they don’t learn by understanding, they learn by some other way—by rote or something,” physicist Richard Feynman once said. “Their knowledge is so fragile!”

Maybe Feynman’s brain was big enough to simply “learn by understanding”—sucking in and comprehending complex realities in a single glance. But what I think he actually meant was that people should learn by exploringand investigating, rather than just memorizing. Only then would their knowledge be useful and durable.

In Tuva, “Bush Legs” Are Exchanged for Domestic Ones

The re-established chicken plant “Yeniseiskaya” started the sales of chicken meat in Tuva. In the 90’s, this enterprise went out of business, among other reasons also because it could not successfully withstand the competition from inexpensive “Bush legs” in the market conditions. After the reconstruction, into which about 150 million rubles were invested, it will supply a significant proportion of the needs of the population in chicken meat.

Valentin Gaft and Sainkho Namtchylak in “Love On The Short Waves”

Igor Pomerantzev, radio “Liberty”: “From the time that I discovered the language of radio, I have been working mostly wit it, and not with events, themes, and people. I have the greatest feeling of freedom in the genre of radio play. It is a worthy, dignified genre. Internationally famous playwrights and writers of many countries work in it. Their radio plays are willingly published by literary journals and publishing houses. But the last provokes some doubts in me.
