Srpska profesorka sa Berklija: Razvili smo sistem za automatsko testiranje na koronavirus

Profesorka Jasmina Vujić, doktor nuklearne fizike i predavač na Kalifornijskom univerzitetu u Berkliju, kaže za RTS da je situacija u Kaliforniji haotična, ali da nema policijskog časa, pa se redovne životne aktivnosti odvijaju relativno normalno – maske nisu obavezne i moguće je videti ljude koji šetaju u parku.

Jasmina Vujić je naučnik i stručnjak svetskog glasa u oblastima reaktorske fizike, modernih metoda za analizu i dizajn nuklearnih reaktora i primenu zračenja u medicini i industriji. Doktor je nuklearne fizike, za mnoge srpska Marija Kiri.

Predaje na jednom od fakulteta Univerziteta u Berkliju. Bila je prva žena dekan na jednom od 10 najboljih fakulteta u Americi. Na čelu je Udruženja dekana svih američki nuklearnih fakulteta u SAD.

Profesorka Jasmina Vujić podseća da Kalifornija ima 40 miliona stanovnika i trenutno preko 28.000 zaraženih, što predstavlja oko 0,07 odsto od ukupnog broja stanovništva.

"Umrlih je blizu 1.000, što je oko 3,4 odsto. U San Francisko zalivu, gde živim sa porodicom, situacija je slična kao u Srbiji – ima oko 10 miliona stanovnika, 5.800 je zaraženo, a do sada je 185 umrlo", kaže profesorka Vujić.

Veruje da bi bilo mnogo više zaraženih kada bi se naširoko testiralo jer se testiranje trenutno odvija sporo. Ističe da je koronavirus dosta toga promenio.

"Prve zvanične informacije sa Univerziteta smo dobili krajem februara, da bi negde početkom marta, naročito od 16. marta, došla naredba da svi moraju da ostanu kod kuće. Univerziteti, škole, obdaništa i svako okupljanje je prestalo. Već smo bili spremni da krenemo sa predavanjima na daljinu. Postoji sva softverska podrška i tako će ostati do kraja semestra", objašnjava profesorka Vujić.

Ističe da je situacija prilično haotična.

"Svi ostali su morali da počnu da rade od kuće, što je dovelo do velikih problema jer su mala deca ostajala sa roditeljima, roditelji su morali da rade od kuće, bebisiterke su nestale, ostale kod svoje kuće", kaže profesorka Vujić.

Nema policijskog časa, maske nisu obavezne

Profesorka Jasmina Vujić kaže da se život u Kaliforniji, ipak, odvija relativno normalno.

"U svemu tome jeste dobro što ne postoji policijski čas, koji, nažalost, postoji u Srbiji, i sve je još relativno normalno. Sve što je neophodno za osnovne potrebe, kao što je odlazak kod lekara, odlazak da se nabavi hrana, izlazak u šetnju i parkove – to je sve dozvoljeno, uz zahtev da rastojanje između ljudi bude oko dva metra. Maske nisu obavezne, mada se preporučuju", objašnjava profesorka Vujić.

Ističe da trenutna situacija ima i svojih prednosti, kao što je manja gužva u saobraćaju.

"Moja porodica – ćerka, zet i troje unučića su u San Francisku, što je otprilike 30 kilometara od Berklija. Trebalo mi je sat i po vremena da pređem most, a sada je to tridesetak minuta. Znači ima i nekih prednosti, ali ima i dosta problema", kaže profesorka Vujić.

Navodi da je dvoje njenih doktoranada lakše obolelo, ali da su virus preležali kod svoje kuće.

"Savet je ovde bio da se nikako ne ide odmah kod doktora ili u bolnicu. Preporučuje se ostanak kod kuće, pomoć porodice i izolacija, naravno. U bolnicu se ide samo u slučaju vrlo visoke temperature i teškoća pri disanju", kaže profesorka Vujić.

Objašnjava da su i na Univerzitetu oformljene ekipe koje ubrzano rade.

"U blizini su tri nuklearne laboratorije sa kojima sarađujemo. Na Univerzitetu smo razvili sistem za automatsko testiranje od po 1.000 uzoraka na dan. Svakodnevno smo na onlajn sastancima, gde se diskutuje koje su najpogodnije metode za sprečavanje pojave virusa i lečenje", ističe profesorka Jasmina Vujić.

Notes On Ecumenism

Written in 1972 by St. Abba Justin Popovich, edited by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, translated from Serbian by Aleksandra Stojanovich, and proofread by Fr Miroljub Ruzich

Abba Justin’s manuscript legacy (on which Bishop Athanasius have been working for a couple of years preparing an edition of The Complete Works ), also includes a parcel of sheets/small sheets of paper (in the 1/4 A4 size) with the notes on Ecumenism (written in pencil and dating from the period when he was working on his book “The Orthodox Church and Ecumenism”; there are also references to the writings of St. Bishop Nikolai [Velimirovich], short excerpts copied from his Sermons, some of which were quoted in the book).

The editor presents the Notes authentically, as he has found them in the manuscripts (his words inserted in the text, as clarification, are put between the slashes /…/; all the footnotes are ours).—In the appendix are present the facsimiles of the majority of Abba’s Notes which were supposed to be included in his book On Ecumenism (written in haste then, but now significantly supplemented with these Notes. The Notes make evident the full extent of Justin’s profundity as a theologian and ecclesiologist of the authentic Orthodoxy).—The real Justin is present in these Notes: by his original language, style, literature, polemics, philosophy, theology, and above all by his confession of the God-man Christ and His Church. He confesses his faith, tradition, experience and his perspective on man, on the world and on Europe—invariably in the Church and from the Church, in the God-man Christ and from Him, just as he did in all of his writings and in his entire life and theologizing.
