Because the island nation is always on the cutting edge of science and progress and the free flow of information

Castrolandia to hold international seminar on nanoscience

English.news.cn 2012-09-15 09:04:19

HAVANA, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Academics and scientists from 22 countries will gather here for the 4th International Seminar on Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies to be held from Sept. 18 to 21 in Havana' s Palace of Conventions, the organizers said Friday.

The seminar will include conferences and lectures on bionanotechnology and its applications in the health field.

Other issues in the seminar' s agenda are the functional and nano-structured materials, theory, modelling, simulation in nanoscale, nano-security and public perception of nanotechnologies.

An exhibition of nanoscale-devices will also be held during the meeting.

The organizing committee said one of the seminar' s goals is to set elements for the design of a national strategy in this promising field.

Nanotechnology is the science that develops and produces tiny devices of enormous precision in its composition and properties, very useful in computers' manufacturing.

The development of nanomedicine can provide new methods for diagnosis of diseases.

Dr. Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart, director of the Advanced Training Center of Cuba (CEAC) and son of former president Fidel Castro, said Cuba is advancing not only in nanotechnology, but also in its application in the biopharmaceutical production.

  • They can improve their research enormously by researching the nano-brains of liberals and "progressives"...

    "Fidelito" looks like a dope on dope. And of course, his position has NOTHING to do with whose son he is. Just like Castro II owes NOTHING to nepotism.

  • asombra

    The kind of neglect and decay shown in the top photo practically did not exist in pre-Castro Cuba. Now it's everywhere--the norm. Anybody can do the math, even if many pretend they can't.

  • asombra

    Fidelito deserves of his position like Mariela Casto does hers, and for the same reason.

  • Is it just me, I think he looks like a pervert.

  • I've never seen a picture of Fidelito before. He's a big a liar as his Daddy.

    I would say that an apple doesn't fall far from the tree, but there are no apple trees in Cuba, and even if there were, apples would be ripped from the trees long before they had a chance to ripen and fall.

    I guess the best idiom that I could use here would be that a mojón doesn't fall far from the a$$hole.

  • asombra

    He must be as dim a bulb as he looks, because he's always been kept well in the background. True, Fidel never wanted competition, but his rat-faced (half) brother has always been pretty visible. I expect Fidelito is simply not ready for his close-up, never has been and never will be.

    "Nano-structured materials" whoa... Interesting because it seems they still haven't been able to discover asphalt and concrete.

    And no, he does not look like a pervert to me (indeed, Raul and his daughter do), Fidelito rather looks like a conceited appendix pretending to be important by association (so much so that he also named his own son "Fidel", the third). This is nothing but more pretensions also serving as propaganda.

    By the way, years back I think Fidel wanted Fidelito to succeed him, he even sent the kid to the USSR for some years, but given his history of transfers and demotions withing the party I get the impression Fidelito didn't cut it (much less any of the other playboy pricks of his sons).

    Oh and I see the typical title "former president" could not be absent from the article, if not the more romantic "revolutionary leader" which is also an euphemism they like. It's as if Castro was not the most totalitarian, destructive, and longest lasting dictator in the western hemisphere (if not in dictator history) to merit the title of dictator. But oh yeah, Batista on the other hand is always dictator for robing an election.
