Organizers of the Russian WWII-dedicated “Memory road” project invite Europeans to participate


The digital database of the Russian “Memory road” project, dedicated to the victory over fascism, contains more than 1 million photos of people who fought in the Second world war. Museums, Military-Patriotic organizations and residents of Europe, whose relatives in particular fought against Nazism in the Soviet army (the Normandy-Neman aviation regiment, units of emigrants from Spain, and others), and other countries of the anti-Hitler coalition are invited to participate in the project.

The collected images will be shown in the “Memory Road” gallery, which is to open on the territory of the “Patriot” military park in Moscow region. The length of the gallery will be 1418 meters which coincides with the number of days the Russian Great Patriotic war lasted for.

This historical project involves both residents of Russia and other countries – the Netherlands, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Estonia. And this is understandable – not only the USSR, but also the countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, and both Americas fought against Nazi Germany and its allies. To counter fascists, a coalition was consisting of the USSR, Great Britain, and the United States was created. The fighting took place all over the world, so the Russian project is ready to perpetuate the memory of all the fighters for a common future. Regardless of where they fought: in Europe, North Africa, or in the Pacific.
By the time hostilities in Japan ended, more than 50 States had

already been at war with the countries of the Nazi bloc. Therefore, all countries of the anti-Hitler coalition, museums, historical and veteran organizations of Europe and the world can participate in the project “Memory road” in order to preserve the memory of their heroes. In 2020, the world will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the victory in World war II.

“Memory road” is an accessible digital database portal, where anyone can upload a photo of a combatant (the photo must first be digitized). In addition to images, the site contains information about the family history, the feat of a war hero, and his or her letters. Sergey Shoigu, Russian Minister of defence, took part in this project by contributing information about his relatives who fought during WWII.

The “Memory road” project is apolitical. It is about people, soldiers, many of whom gave their lives for peace in their countries.
Such a social project is being implemented only in Russia – there is no any other media platform on which full-fledged data about all war combatants can be found.

At the same time, advancement in technology makes it possible to combine all European museums, historical and veteran organizations into a single database to create an international portal about heroes of the WWII.

How safe is it to be a road worker in the UK? It turns out, not very in 2019, thanks to UK motorists


A surprising poll of UK adults carried out by YouGov on behalf of Re-flow found that a massive 35% of people have witnessed another motorist driving carelessly or dangerously past roadworks in the last 12 months alone.

Across the nation, the survey found that more than one in three have witnessed another motorist driving carelessly or dangerously past roadworks in the last 12 months, 10% witnessing a motorist entering the roadworks and a shocking 5% of the UK witnessing a motorist physically collide with the road working area.

The most unsafe region in the UK for dangerous driving (40% witnessed driving dangerously past roadworks) and roadworks incursions (15% saw motorists entering the roadworks) was the West Midlands, while the worst place for roadworks collisions was the North West of England, where a staggering 9% of people reported witnessing this in the last 12 months.

Re-flow software, which is primarily a mobile workforce job management system comes with a feature that enables the immediate recording and reporting of such incidents.

After hearing some unacceptable incidents where people working in the highways sector have faced abuse and violence just for doing their job, we’re championing a new initiative to help people speak up and put a stop to dangerous working environments.

#RecordReportReduce to turn the corner on Road Worker Safety

The #RecordReportReduce mantra highlights three important steps for mobile workers to take for immediate action when their health and safety is compromised in any way:

1. Record what happened while the details are fresh and action can be taken.
2. Report it to the right person in your company, so they can follow it up or make changes to keep you safer.
3. Reduce the chance of being in danger or in line for abuse if people can help.

Mike Saunders, Managing Director of Re-flow said “When we commissioned this survey, we were expecting a few hotspots to appear that shone a spotlight on the careless and dangerous driving of some UK motorists, but the high averages across the country have set alarm bells ringing. People must take more responsibility for their own driving, and road workers must be given more opportunities to report incidents to the right people immediately.”

#RecordReportReduce campaign

Reflow’s #RecordReportReduce campaign began as we saw how much our app was being used to report near misses for road workers. After hearing some shocking stories of incidents where people working on the UK highways network were being abused or put at risk by dangerous driving, we began raising awareness of the importance of recording an incident as soon as it happens to ensure something can be done about it.

Scottish Gold Explorer is raising £600k to advance its Kerry Road Deposit


For the past year and a half GreenOre Gold plc (GreenOre) has undertaken work near Gairloch in North West Scotland to assess the economic potential of the known mineralisation along the Kerry Road. Just over 9000m of drilling was conducted at a site along the old Kerry Road in the late 70’s early 80’s where a horizon rich in gold, copper and zinc was discovered. This site was abandoned due to low metal prices. A reassessment of the deposit and immediate area by GreenOre has concluded that this deposit is now of economic interest and the surrounding area, ripe for further discoveries.

The Kerry Road Deposit is located within a carbonate rich unit in the Gairloch Schist Belt (GSB). The GSB extends 15km north to south. Along this trend newly obtained Aeromag data from the British Geological Survey (BGS) has identified 9 distinct magnetic highs along the GSB with the Kerry Road Deposit clearly visible.

Some of these other magnetic high areas were investigated in 2019 revealing massive sulphide beds within the GSB. These sulphide beds appear along the same stratigraphic level as the Kerry Road deposit. One such bed located 10km south revealed 0.2 and 0.17g/t gold in grab samples from a sulphide bearing unit which disappears under the sandstone cover. Historically boulders from the vicinity ran up to 4g/t gold. Research by the BGS in 1986 identified a similar geophysical anomaly as that at Kerry Road below the sandstone at this location. This has never been drill tested. It is believed the sandstone cover is about 40m. The fact that elevated gold grades can be found over 10km away along the same unit indicates that the gold system is far bigger than just the Kerry Road Deposit. This also demonstrates the size and scale of the mineralisation event.

In 2018 GreenOre drill tested the mineralised outcrop at Kerry Road and intercepted 17m at 1g/t Au, 0.9% Cu and 0.6% Zn (including 8m at 1.8g/t Au, 1.4% Cu and 0.7% Zn). Along with the high levels of gold, copper and zinc there also appears to be elevated levels of cobalt within the bed. Cobalt values in GreenOre’s drill hole were up to 370g/t over 1m. At surface a value of 410g/t was discovered and analysis of a historic drillhole (GBH15) revealed 450g/t at 25.95m. As cobalt was never tested historically and it is anticipated higher values may exist elsewhere.

Following consultation with many experts GreenOre is confident that, if proven accurate, the historic deposit at Kerry Road is now of economic interest. GreenOre is now seeking funding to develop this deposit beginning with confirmatory drilling and a resource calculation. Metallurgical test work of the ore and prefeasibility studies will follow. During this period further investigations will continue to identify more mineralisation along trend.
