Nowadays, the flipped classroom technology has become popular in the educational institutions of developed countries. However, in Russia this approach has not been widely practiced yet due to objective reasons. The purpose of this article is to analyze the effectiveness of using the flipped classroom technology in the system of higher education and specifically in foreign language courses. This article presents the results of the experiment on the implementation of some elements of flipped classroom technology in Kazan Federal University (Russia). The experiment was held with the students of the Law Faculty (60 people) through the course "Foreign language (French) in the sphere of jurisprudence". The idea of making the experiment came after getting very low students’ exam results at the end of the course. In this group traditional methods of SL teaching were used according to state educational standards such as reading professional texts and communication on professional topics. After thorough analysis of the results, the following reasons for unsatisfactory assessments were identified: systematic absence of the students at classes, systematic failure of completing homework assignments, and abuse of electronic translators. Thus, the need to use different teaching approaches became obvious. Taking into account the situation, the authors decided to use the flipped classroom technology to develop students’ core competencies and to improve their language skills.

This article examines the final decisions of constitutional and statutory courts in RF subjects, as well as individual decisions of RF Constitutional Court and the judicial legal positions expressed in them. Judicial practice, established on the basis of control and supervision activities of constitutional justice regional bodies, allows us to consider the principle of maintaining citizens’ confidence in the law and the actions of the state as a cross-sectoral legal principle that serves as the criterion to evaluate the constitutionality of legal norms adopted outside the powers of Russian Federation on the subjects of joint jurisdiction of Russian Federation and RF subjects. However, the close relationship between the principle of citizens’ confidence maintaining in the law and the actions of the state with the general legal principles of justice, equality, legal certainty and the recognition of a person, his rights and freedoms as the highest value makes it possible to qualify this principle as a general principle of law. According to the judicial practice of the constitutional and statutory courts of RF subjects, the principle of maintaining citizens’ confidence in the law and the state actions has its own criteria, each of which can be used for the evaluation of regional constitutional justice activity.

Wheat is one of the major crops of the agriculture sector in Egypt and, most importantly, it represents roughly as half of the ingredients for Egyptians’ daily food. The increasing demand of wheat comes as a result of the increasing number of populations. Thus, forecasting is the main tool for government in order to manage all processes of producing, consuming, and ultimately importing wheat efficiently and effectively. This study utilizes time series models to find out the best model to forecast the wheat demand and supply in Egypt. It develops time series models based on the data of production, consumption, and imports during the period of 2016-2025. We found that the best model is ARIMA (0, 0, 1), or simply (AR1). On the basis of this selected model, we found that wheat consumption was increased by 18.54 million tons, with a minimum of 9.48 million tons and a maximum of 27.64 million tons, while the production was still 9.6 million tons and the import was about 9,5 million tons. Our prediction of this model is that Egypt will continue depending on the imports in the upcoming years if the current policies remain unchanged. We provide some recommendations to help the government overcome this predicted problem based on our analysis. We do believe our result is of value for the Egyptian government in particular and any other country that might have the same circumstances as in Egypt.
The aim of research was to study Impact Analysis of Strategic Cost Management on Business Quality Modern Corporation. This research was descriptive and to analyze this research we used an independent T test.

Knowledge of foreign languages to a great extent depends on a teacher’s methods and methodological approaches. Among the number of certain methods we choose grammar-translation and direct methods. In spite of the fact that these methods were popular last century, they are still widely used nowadays. The usage of them presented their fundamental advantages and some disadvantages, used in our practice. This paper was written on the basis of theoretical aspects’ research of the problem, on analysis and synthesis of scientific literature and on personal experience of teaching English during nearly one year in Chernihiv Academy of the State Penitentiary Service (Ukraine). During this period of time we were observing the problem of teaching English with the help of grammar-translation and direct methods by the students and cadets who were taught with the help of these methods. Studying the problem of grammar-translation and direct methods in teaching English is acute because of increasing role of English, on the one side, and demands which are promoted to future law specialists, on the other hand. The significance of this issue arises in detection of peculiarities in teaching English in the educational institution with specific conditions of study. Solving this problem with the help of differentiated approach to teaching English to students and cadets facilitates high qualitative changes. Novelty is in applying famous methods such as grammar- translation and direct methods in the new surroundings. The results of our work were described and compared in this paper. The findings revealed the implementation of the mentioned methods in the high institution with specific conditions of studying. The described methods can be admitted by other foreign language teachers. However, we reached a conclusion that the mentioned methods may be modified.

The goal of this study is to identify the most efficient practices in exercising the digital public administration in the context of implementing the innovative potential of national economy. This goal was achieved through highlighting the distinctions and peculiarities of Social Credit System as China’s administration model. The study determines the impact of Social Credit System on economic and social indicators of China’s economy. The authors assessed the efficiency of Social Credit System based on the indicators of the countries, which had the alternative approaches to digital public administration and were characterized by a high level of application of digital technology to monitor the economic processes. This paper provides evidence that the Chinese system of digital administration has its own advantages in implementing the innovative potential of national economy as it highly impedes the increase in corruption. However, this system is inefficient in ensuring market transparency.
The research paper deals with the formation of new scientific solutions concerning evaluation of the development of the agroindustrial complex, its role in ensuring sustainable development of the national economy, identifying problems and developing ways to solve them in the current conditions of the functioning of agrarian production in the countries of Eastern Europe. The research emphasizes the key importance of agrarian production to ensure the food and economic security of Eastern European countries. It has been revealed that the agroindustrial complex plays a significant role in the countries of Eastern Europe, especially as concerns Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Moldova, Bulgaria and Romania. There are problems with the formation of effective state support of agrarian production in the countries selected for study, especially as regards the countries of Eastern Europe, which are not members of the European Union. The methodology for assessing the development of the agroindustrial complex in Eastern European countries was developed and proposed for use, as well as calculations on its basis were made, which allowed to divide all countries of this region into three groups: countries - outsiders (Ukraine, Moldova, Russia); countries, where the development of agrarian industry is of concern (Belarus, Romania, Bulgaria); countries that need to improve the agrarian sector of the national economy (Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland). A complex of agrarian production problems was identified for each of the Eastern European countries, and the key ways of their elimination were proposed, which are aimed at: reforming the market of agricultural land; stimulating the development of farms; increasing efficiency of state support of agrarian production; intensification of development and introduction of innovations in the agrarian sector; the transformation of the structure of the agro commodities market, including the optimization of their export and import.
