Albert II, the King of the Belgians, and Queen Paola are to pay a state visit to the Russian Federation from February 19 to 21.

A state visit is a significant event in itself. This will be the tenth such visit over the five years of the reign of King Albert. Thereby, Belgium emphasises special importance which it attaches to relations with Russia. The unconventional nature of the visit is also evidenced by the fact that the Royal couple will be accompanied by Crown Prince Philip. This was done previously only during the visit to Japan in 1996, Royal Court spokeswoman Francoise Gustain has told Itar-Tass here.

The late King Baudouin, Albert's elder brother, visited the Soviet Union in 1975. The reigning monarch received Russian President Boris Yeltsin shortly after his ascension to the throne in 1993.

President Yeltsin and First Lady Naina Yeltsin will attend the official functions during the Belgian Royal couple's visit here. The King is scheduled to have meetings with the House Speakers of the Russian Federal Assembly (parliament) and Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov and make a speech at a reception.

King Albert is to visit the Khrunichev State Space Centre while the Queen, who back at home patronises the development of arts and crafts, will tour the Kremlin museums, a ballet school and the GUM department store.

In Moscow and St. Petersburg, where the guests will spend the concluding day of the visit, they are to lay wreaths at the Unknown Soldier's Tomb and to the Monument to the Defenders of Leningrad. Traditionally, the Royal couple never give interviews or press conferences. Therefore, the programme of the visit makes no provision for meetings with the press.

Crown Prince Philip, 37, Honorary Chairman of Belgian Chamber of Foreign Trade, usually leads a business delegation. This time his participation in the visit reflects his personal interest in Russia, the spokeswoman pointed out.

The Belgian monarchy has been in existence since the state was formed in 1831. Ever since, the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty has been reigning in the country. The first King Leopold, prior to his ascension to the throne, began his military career in the Russian army, participating in the wars against Napoleon.

Formally, the King of the Belgians wields the executive power. At the same time he "reigns but not rules". His "power of influence" and his moral prestige are particularly important in a federative state where he symbolises the unity of the nation.

Summary A new concept of electricity is needed primarily because the modern concept of electricity believes that the conduction current is the movement of free electrons with stationary ions. But Faraday two hundred years ago put an experiment that showed that the conduction current is a movement, both negative and positive charges In addition, the current concept of electricity is not able to explain, for example, how an electric current generates magnetism, how superconductivity is formed, how the current is rectified, etc. The new concept of electricity must begin with the realization that the ether is not only the medium of light propagation, but the environment in which natural and artificial electric currents are distributed. Key words: superconductivity, photoelectric effect, current, electron, positron, graviton.

Гипотеза показывает: Как ядро атома рождает гравитацию атома. Как гравитация атомов, суммируясь, рождает гравитацию тел. Как ядро атома, вращаясь с огромной скоростью, осуществляет сильное взаимодействие. Как, вращающийся вокруг ядра электрон, не излучает электромагнитную волну. Как атомы соединяются в молекулы. Как в ядрах атомов протоны и нейтроны с колоссальной быстротой превращаются друг в друга. Как разность гравитационных потенциалов рождает привилегированную систему отсчёта. Как абстрактное инерционное движение превращается в выдумку мыслителей. Как электрон и позитрон превращается друг в друга. Как "приморозка" свободных электронов к атомам является причиной сверхпроводимости. Как формулы Кулона и Ньютона о взаимодействии зарядов и о взаимодействии гравитирующих тел имеют одинаковую математическую форму.

Основой инерционного движения является лоренцево сокращение длины движущихся тел вдоль вектора их движения. В наличии такой деформации не приходиться сомневаться потому, что наше тело испытывает эту деформацию, когда мы движемся с ускорением. Причиной деформации тел является сопротивление движению тел, которое оказывают гравитонные цепочки гравитационных полей, в которых тела движутся.

Верующие в теорию относительности Эйнштейна не отличают объективную реальность от субъективной реальности. Стул, который можно поломать, это объективная реальность. Стул, как обобщающее понятие, нельзя поломать потому, что он существует только в нашей голове.
