May 2019 and the future of the EU!

The European elections in May 2019 will have a direct impact on our life. The European Parliament is the only supranational, democratically elected parliament in the world. All adult EU citizens will have an opportunity to select who will represent them and how Europe will act in the coming years. The European Union currently consists of 28 member states and is largely viewed as a cornerstone of European stability and prosperity, however, many EU countries have faced considerable economic difficulties. The EU has had to deal with a series of crises in these last few years: the Brexit negotiations, the trade dispute with the United States, the growth of right-wing populist movements, a democracy and rule-of-law concerns in Poland (since […]

Britain, the EU and the future!

To summarise the intricacies and complexities of European Union is no mean feat, especially to do so in roughly 200 words. The European Union is facing its most difficult challenge to date as people in the member states are increasingly becoming apathetic or down right adversarial towards the EU. With the situation of Brexit being a predominant political problem, that will be felt by most people throughout the continent and to the rest of the world, the EU will have to weather this storm if it is to maintain the integrity and diplomatic relations with the rest of the union member states. The EU needs to be strong when confronting Britain as they have to show other countries that leaving […]

The European Union in my country

The next Elections to the European Parliament are held from the 23rd till the 26th of May 2019. At the moment 751 Members of the European Parliament represent the 28 member states with more than 512 million people. Because of the Brexit, the European Parliament voted in February 2018 to decrease the number to 705 members. With the exit of Great Britain the European Union faced some problems. At the beginning a lot of other countries thought about to follow Britain and also leave the EU. The parliament showed a lot of challenges the Brexit brings and because of that they could avoid it. Although there was a petition for a referendum my home country always was commonly for staying […]

O “Código de barras” das espécies

Filipe Costa, professor da Universidade do Minho, integra consórcio internacional que quer compilar sequências curtas de ADN de pelo menos cerca de dois milhões de seres vivos. Filipe Costa, professor da Universidade do Minho, é um dos mil cientistas que integra um consórcio internacional que quer descobrir os “códigos de barras” das diferentes espécies. O projecto Bioscan, que é lançado este domingo, pretende encontrar sequências curtas de ADN de cerca dois milhões de seres vivos nos próximos sete anos. O sistema de identificação usado por esta equipa de investigadores baseia-se em “códigos de barras” de ADN, que são sequências mais curtas de ADN, que permitem uma identificação rápida, mas ainda assim eficaz, das espécies. O seu funcionamento é semelhante ao […]

A minha experiência SVE na Roménia

Na reta final desta experiência, posso afirmar que aprendi o verdadeiro sentido de voluntariado: é um dever civico e não uma opção para um cidadão ativo. Quando decidi fazer um SVE, foi algo que começou por ser uma curiosidade, com o intuito de me divertir, conhecer pessoas de outros países e culturas e ter uma oportunidade para crescer e aprender. Com destino à Roménia, na Europa de Leste, a cidade Craiova tornou-se na minha casa durante quase quatro meses. Ajudei a desenvolver o projeto “Be Fit”, que consistiu em ajudar adolescentes de uma prisão/centro de detenção/correção local. Através de atividades de desporto, pintura, artes manuais e dança, tentámos transmitir aos jovens os valores e a importância da inclusão social e […]

EU: elections and the future

In a short time, it will be May 23-26, time for the next elections for the European Parliament. These elections are especially important, as they concern the future of Europe and its standing towards important subjects such as work, security, migration and climate change, some of the most discussed topics, be it in global or local politics. Topics which have a huge influence on our future and well-being in said future. These elections may also mark an important turning point, seeing as the European Union is trying, and often struggling, to fight against the apathy of its citizens and the strong populist tide many countries seem to find themselves in. The situation in my country, Germany, may be described as […]

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. […]
