Natus Vincere (NAVI) has added Ukrainian professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player Viktor “sdy” Orudzhev to its CS:GO roster for IEM Cologne 2022. This is not the first time that sdy has joined the team on a temporary loan from MAD Lions, as he was previously in the lineup for BLAST Premier: Spring Finals 2022 where NAVI won its first tournament of the season.
NAVI is bringing sdy back to its roster for this tournament as it will look to defend its title in Cologne, while also hoping to improve on their last outing with him at BLAST Premier: Spring Finals 2022 when they finished second overall with a HLTV rating of 1.02 across 12 maps and a +11 K/D. NAVI will be relying on sdy to continue proving himself in his new role as the fifth and final member of their team.
The sdy prize is offered to the most outstanding student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presented at the annual crystallographic meeting of the American Crystallographic Association (ACA). This prize honors the memory of ACA President Linus Pauling and is supported by member contributions.
sdy prize award is awarded to the best poster of an undergraduate or graduate student in the field of chemical crystallography or small molecule structure determination and analysis. This award is sponsored by the Journal of Chemical Crystallography and a book voucher for their personal choice of books from Springer’s extensive portfolio of titles is provided to the winner.
MiTeGen-Society of Physics Students Undergraduate Poster Prize is awarded to the most outstanding undergraduate poster presented at the annual crystallographic meeting by a member of the Society of Physics Students. This prize is supported by a cash donation from the Society of Physics Students and MiTeGen, as well as a gift certificate for MiTeGen products.
Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award is a writing competition for unpublished manuscripts of Jewish fiction targeting ages 8-13 years, both Jewish and non-Jewish. The winning manuscript will be published as a book.
Structural Dynamics is a journal dedicated to the advancement of experimental structural dynamics in chemistry, biology and materials science by publishing articles that advance a new understanding of how the molecular, chemical or physical structures of matter change over time and space. It seeks to address the fundamental questions that underlie this scientific discipline and to develop techniques, methods and tools for their implementation.
Editor-in-Chief of Structural Dynamics, Majed Chergui has been named winner of the 2015 Earle K. Plyler Prize for Molecular Spectroscopy & Dynamics, which recognizes a distinguished scientist who has made significant contributions to the development of new experimental or theoretical approaches in molecular spectroscopy and/or dynamics.
Professor Chergui has pioneered a range of new methods, extending the temporal and spectral scope of spectroscopy, and has developed innovative methods for X-ray spectroscopy in both solution and solid state. He has also contributed to the development of Laue methods for time-resolved studies in both X-ray and neutron crystallography.
