Is the seeker a vocation or hard work?
Our life is full of dangers, which we do not evenwe notice. If you think about it, many of our actions involve certain risks. Have you ever thought about how dangerous it is to drive a car? Driven by the force that arises as a result of burning in a confined space, in fact an explosion ... However, we do not even think about the fact that this can be fraught with unpleasant consequences for us. At the same time, there are people who consciously take risks associated with the performance of their duties.
Let's start with an explanatory dictionaryand we learn the meaning of the word "prospector". Ushakov's dictionary defines this concept as follows. The seeker is a person engaged in research in any field. Clearly gone, is not it? Then we turn to the following term - "exploration". All the same Ushakov defines this word as "the process of search, research." Thus, it turns out that prospectors are people who are engaged in search and research in the most diverse spheres of human life.
Having defined the terminology, let's get down to business."research" the practical benefits of this profession. The first thing to mention is the construction work. In any decent and solid construction company there is a prospector's position. This is a special person who visits places of prospective construction in order to check it for compliance with all requirements.
The works themselves are engineeringand are a necessary part of the construction. They help determine the economic feasibility, improve the level of security at the site, allow you to develop accurate documentation and estimates for construction work.
In many cases, engineering research is vitalare necessary both for the customer and for the end user. In this type of work, the soil, underground communications, soil and many other aspects of the terrain are studied in sufficient detail. If you neglect the prospecting work, it can not only lead to a sudden increase in construction estimates, but also lead to a number of accidents, as well as damage to communications and the city's infrastructure.
As you now understand, the profession of "prospector" is the responsibility for people's lives, which falls on the shoulders of a specialist.
Geological surveys are needed not only inconstruction. Despite the fact that in most cases it is the study of the site, this type of work is needed not only in the settlements. The seeker is a specialist in search. For example, exploration of minerals. The biggest careers and resource deposits have long been known, but the profession remains relevant to this day. As you know, the prospector is a painstaking and difficult profession, which not everyone can deal with.
Another sphere of activity of prospectors,gradually leaving in the shade, is the laying of navigable canals. No matter how bitterly observed, the decline in the sphere of peaceful shipbuilding and navigation is noticeable to the naked eye. However, until now, in some state institutions, it is possible to find a prospector's vacancy in an area called "geological prospecting".
"The road of life"
Returning to the construction theme, it is necessarymentioning such a sphere as the construction of roads, and, first of all, the iron ones. Engineering research in this area is even more indispensable than in town planning. Recalling the Great Patriotic War, it should be noted that this work was sometimes more dangerous than the military itself.
The railroad seekers went in the second row,immediately after the sappers. Their task was to design and lay the ways of communication, as well as the restoration of damaged roads and bridges. And the "Road of Life" to the besieged Leningrad did not appear on its own. All work was carried out under bombardment and bombardment of the enemy.
But even now, in peacetime, prospectors in thisThe areas of construction bear a huge burden of responsibility for laying railroad tracks. After all, this is not lost money as a result of the design of the building, but thousands died in the event of a train coming off the tracks.
In the military sphere, one can also find a postprospector. Of course, it is called a little differently, but the essence remains the same. A military prospector is a scout. It is interesting that in English there is no such thing. The seeker translates as a prospector. A dictionary of synonyms gives us a clue that this is the same as scout (scout).
Army intelligence units meanunder itself all known Штирлица - such spy in a suit. A scout is a person who is able to hide in the forest on a level ground, be able to survive in the most difficult conditions, and most importantly - remain invisible.
In the army, not only infantry is engaged in research. Pilots of military and civil aviation are people who regularly put themselves at risk. In addition to military intelligence, in peacetime they are forced to engage in, for example, the search for missing persons. A vivid example, typical for Russia: every spring fishermen carry away to sea on an ice floe, and they are looked for by rescuers and military men.
