The University of Lodz

I had the pleasure of learning and acquiring knowledge from the best professors at this university. The University of Lodz was established in 1945 and has long been one of the biggest and most popular universities in Poland. High level of education, learning foreign languages, scholarships, student exchange programs are just some of the advantages that I experienced by my own.  The 12 faculties, and a branch unit of the University provide programmes in 100 fields of study and 160 specializations. In addition, the University offers several doctoral programmes, more than 50 postgraduate study programmes, as well as studies in English and French. More than 28 000 students attend the University of Lodz.  The University is also very open for […]

Rede que liga fagos de todo o mundo

Há já uma rede de investigadores que troca informação sobre a terapia fágica e fornece fagos em caso de necessidade. Imagine que alguém tem uma infecção de uma bactéria resistente a um antibiótico e a única solução é ser tratado através da terapia fágica, uma abordagem terapêutica que usa vírus (bacteriófagos) para matar bactérias específicas. Adelaide Almeida, do Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar da Universidade de Aveiro, alerta que seria útil a criação de um banco de dados com informação sobre todos os bacteriófagos (ou fagos) que cada laboratório do mundo produz. Assim, esse laboratório poderia disponibilizar o fago para tratar a infecções ou para ensaios clínicos, aumentando assim a rapidez desses testes. Neste momento, já existe […]

Can the European project survive?

The project “Europe” is stumbling. Now more than ever. Opinions tend to differ sharply when it comes to questions concerning refugees, the rise of far right parties and racism against minorities. The European Union seems to fall apart as countries discuss the leaving of this once-so-promising project. So the question arises, what can we – as individuals – do to save this venture? How can we make sure that our grandchildren will have the same privileges that we have now?  I think the most basic and most important precondition is to be OPEN. To be open towards new cultures, new people, new habits. To be open towards new norms, new ideas, new point of views. Only when we mutually approach […]

O vencedor do Prémio Nobel da Paz de 2019 é Abiy Ahmed Ali, primeiro-ministro etíope, anunciaram nesta sexta-feira em Oslo as Academias sueca e norueguesa. O prémio foi atribuído pelos seus esforços para “alcançar a paz e a cooperação internacional” com os acordos de paz com a Eritreia. “A paz não chega das acções de apenas uma parte. Quando o primeiro-ministro estendeu a sua mão, Isaias Afewerki [Presidente da Eritreia] agarrou-a e ajudou a formalizar o processo de paz entre os dois países”, justificou Berit Reiss-Andersen, líder​ do comité que atribui este […]

A Europe for the future

How can we ensure that the European Union operates in the best way to support all future generations? For someone from the United Kingdom, the European Union is incredibly important for us now more than ever. Therefore, I believe that the most important thing I can do for the EU and my country is to show my support for remaining in the EU. The EU brings many benefits to a country, in my opinion, I care mostly about the ease of travel. Without the EU I would not be able to travel as easily or possibly take part in Erasmus at all. It is so important for young people to be able to travel, study and work in new places. […]

Europe of my grandchildren

In the time when Europe faces many challenges it is important to ask ourselves: what can I do to support EU and projects which it fulfils.  The most important thing which we must realize is that our action can make a difference! How do I understand that, and what can be our contribution in the development of European Projects, you can find out reading this article.  Firstly, taking the opportunity to vote in European Elections, as this is the only one occasion for the nearest 5 years for citizens of Europe to have an influence on shape of European Parliament as it is the only institution among the EU which is chosen through elections in EU countries. This institution approves […]

A Musician from my Country?

I picked a musician from Austria There are no famous musicians from Liechtenstein. As you may know, Liechtenstein is a very small country. Therefore it is very hard to find a famous musician from there, because, we don’t have any successful musicians. We do have small bands and other music groups, but none of them are worth writing about, so I picked a musician from Austria to write about instead. So the musician I’m writing about instead is called “Yung Hurn”. He’s an Austrian Rapper from the capital Vienna. His original name is Julian Sellmeister and he was born in 1995. He dropped out of high school and started rapping. His mixtape “22” was an instant hit, especially his hit […]

Austrian Legend: Falco

He lived how he died… SPECTACULAR When I got the email with the information about this month’s article I was just listening to “Ganz Wien” by the Austrian legend Falco! So, obviously, the case was clear and I chose him for this Text. Falco, whose birth name is Johann “Hans” Hölzl was born in 1957 in Vienna. Falco attended several different forms of education and schools, however, none of them seemed to fit. In the end, he quit his music studies because “he wanted to become a real musician”. His first studio album “Der Kommissar” (the commissioner) rapidly dominated the Austrian club scene and was wildly popular in several other European countries. His second album “Junge Roemer” was, sadly, kind […]

Kojey Radical

A  musical phenomenon. A hip/hop star that defies boundaries. I would say that I am blessed to be from a country that has contributed a prolific amount of talent to popular and underground music. From Elgar to Bowie, and Henry Purcell to Radiohead, the small but hugely important island that I call home has changed the sound and shifted the landscape of music throughout history. However, it is an established name in the London hip/hop scene that I wish to spotlight. Kojey Radical, from East London, has seen a transition from spoken word poetry to a lyrical rap heavyweight in an outstandingly short amount of time. He has already garnered praise and features from grime legends Wretch 32 and Ghetts. […]
