Sixteen euros for a can — and you breathe the mountain clean! "Paying for air" — now in Italy it is not just a sarcastic statement. However, Alpine air is not Beijing...
A few weeks ago, the company "Swiss Alpine Air", based in the Canton of Zug and is still famous for its cherry brandy (Kirschwasser), started to sell clean air. Freshness of the Alps in the aerosol cans is by the Italians — experimental sales started in Como in Italy. In Switzerland, the mountain air is sold at a price 18,47 francs for the container, in Italy — at 16 euros, writes
"We thought that residents of heavily polluted cities such as Milan, Beijing and Delhi will be very interested in this product, explains CEO Danny Burr. — According to the who, 98% of cities with population over 100 thousand people can not count on a satisfactory air quality. In many cases, this has a very negative effect on the health and well-being."
"Earlier it was unusual to buy water in bottles — continue the sellers of the Alpine air. — Today, no one imagines the restaurant without ordering bottles of mineral water. The idea is not that other, as an extension of this concept. We are already exporting to the Swiss Alpine water, chocolate and cheese. Why not export our clean air?"
The Swiss Alpine air is already popular in the far East and in Dubai. In UAE it is served as the last expensive "nonsense" to relax between puffs of expensive Cuban cigars. Will there be a popular idea among the neighbours of the Italians, is unclear.

More than two thirds of countries around the world require a total ban of nuclear weapons, results in the translation of the article on DW "Explorer."
At the session of the General Assembly of the United Nations in new York, many States have already signed the Treaty to ban nuclear weapons (adopted on 7 July 2017 at the headquarters of the UN and opened for signature on 20 September. – Ed.). The words of the UN Secretary-General, antónio Guterres, that they want to create a world "without the doomsday weapon". But the countries possessing nuclear weapons (NW), in the initiative are not involved.
Who have nuclear weapons and how many?
It is considered that in the world today, in fact, there are nine nuclear powers – the US, Russia, France, UK, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea. In their possession, according to the Stockholm Institute for peace studies (SIPRI) in January 2017, there is a total of about 15 thousand nuclear warheads. But they are distributed among the "nine" is very uneven. The United States and Russia have 93 percent of all nuclear warheads on the planet.
Anyone have the official nuclear status, and who is not?
Officially nuclear powers are only those that have signed the Treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons of 1968. This (in the order of creation of its first atomic bomb) – the United States (1945), USSR/Russia (1949), Britain (1952) France (1960) China (1964). The other four countries, though have nuclear weapons, the Treaty on the non-proliferation of joined in.
North Korea withdrew from the Treaty, Israel has never officially acknowledged that it has nuclear weapons, but it is believed in tel Aviv is. In addition, in the United States assume that Iran continues to work on the creation of the atomic bomb, despite the official renunciation of the military use of nuclear energy and the control of the IAEA.

How to change the number of nuclear warheads
Although over time more and more States began to possess nuclear weapons, the number of nuclear warheads today are much lower than during the cold war. In the 1980-ies there were about 70 thousand. Today, their number continues to decline in accordance with the agreement on disarmament concluded by the United States and Russia in 2010 (contract start-III). But the number is not so important. Almost all nuclear powers are modernizing their Arsenal and make it even more powerful.
What are the initiatives on nuclear disarmament?
The oldest such initiative – the Treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. Signatory States that have no nuclear weapons, commit themselves permanently to abandon his creation. The official nuclear powers undertake to negotiate on disarmament. However, the agreement did not stop the spread of nuclear weapons.
Another weakness of the Treaty – it is in the long term divides the world into those who have nuclear weapons and those who don't. Criticism of the document also note that the five official nuclear powers is also permanent members of the UN Security Council.
Whether a successful nuclear disarmament treaties?
The US and the USSR/Russia after the cold war destroyed a significant number of nuclear warheads and their carriers. Start I (signed in July 1991, entered into force in December 1994, expired in December 2009. – Ed.) Washington and Moscow have significantly reduced their nuclear arsenals.
This process was difficult, from time to time stalled, but the goal was for both parties is so important that presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev in the spring of 2010, signed the new start Treaty. Obama then announced his desire for a nuclear-free world. The further fate of the contract is uncertain amid policy demonstration of military force by the President of the United States Donald trump, and Russian action against Ukraine.
The Pope called on humanity to abandon nuclear weapons
Some countries have renounced nuclear weapons
From attempts to build an atomic bomb refused shortly before the abolition of apartheid South Africa, and Libya in 2003. Stand apart from the others former Soviet republics, inherited after the collapse of a nuclear weapon. Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed the Lisbon Protocol, which made them parties to the Treaty start-1, and then acceded to the Treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons.
The largest Arsenal, the third in the world after the USA and Russia were in Ukraine. By refusing him, Kyiv received in return financial assistance and guarantees of security and territorial integrity from nuclear powers enshrined in the so-called Budapest Memorandum. However, the Memorandum was in the nature of the voluntary commitments have not been ratified by any of the signatory States and did not provide any mechanism for sanctions.
With the beginning of the 2014 conflict in the East of Ukraine Memorandum critics say that the refusal of Kiev from nuclear weapons was not justified. They believe that the presence in Ukraine of nuclear weapons would not allow Russia to Annex Crimea. On the other hand, experts note that the example of North Korea can cause a chain reaction where more and more countries want to obtain nuclear warheads.
What are the prospects for the prohibition of nuclear weapons
The current initiative to ban nuclear weapons – no more than a symbolic gesture against the nuclear arms race. If for no other reason that all the nine nuclear powers do not take the initiative participation. They argue that nuclear weapons are the best defense from attack, and point to the existing non-proliferation Treaty. But in the Treaty on the prohibition question.
NATO also does not support the Treaty, which was opened on 20 September for signature. Campaign for his signature, as stated in the official statement of the Alliance, "does not take into account the increasingly threatening international situation in the security sphere". Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister of foreign Affairs of France, called the initiative "almost irresponsible," "self-deception". According to him, it can only weaken the non-proliferation Treaty.
On the other hand, Beatrice Finn, head of the international campaign for the abandonment of nuclear weapons, urged countries to join the initiative. She stressed that nuclear weapons – "the only weapon of mass destruction, which is still not banned, despite their destructive power and threat to mankind". By her expression, since coming to power in the United States Donald trump this threat has increased.
Recently, the Russian opposition Konstantin Borovoy assessed the likelihood of Russia's use of nuclear weapons against Ukraine. According to him, Putin needs nuclear missiles to political blackmail, not for war.

Google for several years trying to solve the main problem of the Android operating system is a complex and lengthy process of getting new firmware. So, for each specific mobile device companies have to test it separately, which greatly increases the development time. Of course, to follow such a path is extremely difficult, but the company Xiaomi has found a way out of this situation that she doesn't want to share with anyone. All its smartphones have the big advantage, which is not in production Samsung, LG, HTC and other brands.
All brand Xiaomi smartphones are running proprietary firmware MIUI, which is based on Android. The company regularly releases latest software for all their mobile devices, making it is similar with Apple, which can be considered a benchmark in this regard. Now all goes to that in the coming years, the brand owners of mobile devices under the brand Xiaomi received a new firmware version at the same time, as implemented in iOS.
Even now, when all mobile Xiaomi device get update for MIUI firmware at different times, all smartphones under this brand has a large advantage over competitors. So, the Chinese company almost every week distributes fresh OTA update, which fixed bugs, improves security and makes some improvements to increase speed and autonomy.
None of the Android smartphone from other brands, with the exception of mobile devices line Google Pixel and Nexus, can not boast that it was actively updated. Moreover, the Chinese Corporation does not share your smartphone to "expensive" and "cheap", as it likes to do some Samsung. If a new firmware comes out for the flagship, it will receive a budget model, but only if she can pull of new functionality as part of the "iron" that is quite logical.
Also do not forget about the fact that Xiaomi has updated the Mi 2 smartphone, released about five years ago, before the operating system MIUI 9. Such support in the plan can not boast of even Apple, not to mention the other manufacturers of Android-smartphone. This is a big advantage of mobile devices Xiaomi stand out from its competitors as the owners of smartphones under this brand will never feel "abandoned" and unnecessary to the manufacturer. That is expensive!
