Cognitive Technologies opened their OCR product!

From their site:

"CUNEIFORM V.12. In our modern world you can hardly think about simply retyping documents into a computer, because they usually have images and other elements of decoration which you you will not be able to copy into your computer without scanning. And only such modern and perfect system as CuneiForm V.12 can reproduce an original document form, including images, tables, columns, paragraphs, indentions, font styles and sizes.

Support of 20 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Mixed Russian-English, Ukrainian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Serbian, Croatian, Polish and others. "

I think this is important and (maybe) principal solution for Linux users. Of course, other systems' users have benefit, too.

Links for downloading binary and source code of CuneiForm can take from Cognitive Technologies' site (in English).

Second and third reffered articles

1. Rudakov O.B., Chorochordina E. A., Phan Vinh Thinh, Podolina E.A., Rudakova L.V. Determination of capsaicinoids and ionol (BHT) in pepper plasters by microcolumn HPLC // Sorption and chromatographical processes, volume 8, issue 2, pp. 332-338.


Liquid extraction of capsaicinoids and ionol from water-salting liquids of sulphate of ammonium is investigated by isopropanol. Conditions of extraction of these analyts from a pepper plaster are optimized. The technique microcolumn HPLC definitions of capsaicinoids and ionol in extracts are offered.

2. Horohordina E. A., Phan Vinh Thinh, Rudakov O.B., Podolina E.A. Influence of structure of phenols on interfacial tension in extraction systems hexane - chloroform - water-salting solution // Sorption and chromatographical processes, volume 8, issue 2, pp. 339-345.


Definitely interfacial energy in systems hexane - chloroform – an alkyl phenol - water-salting solution. Influence of structure on character of isotherms of interfacial tension and partition coefficients of phenols in the investigated extraction systems is considered.

Photo competition at my university

In the period of February and March a photo competition was organized at my university (Voronezh State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Russia) for (post-graduate) students. In the end of the activity, authors with selected works will be awarded and their photos will have places in exhibition room of Voronezh union of artists.

Three of my photos had been choose:
  1. Pigeons
