Christmas in Liechtenstein

Going to church on Christmas or spending more time with the family? This is in our country very different. Christmas means general spending time with the family in our country. It depends on how religious you and your family are and which religion they have. In our catholic family, it is a tradition to go to the mass on the 24th of December. With this event, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and afterward, we can do our own family traditions. On Christmas Eve, we always eat a lot and enjoy the moment where we all are together. We eat something special that we are not eating every day. Because we are a few vegetarians in our family, our dinner […]

Plantas Domésticas Purificam o Ar?

Ter plantas dentro de casa pode trazer vários benefícios, mas limpar o ar não é um deles – dizem os especialistas. Este é um daqueles mitos que não gostávamos de ver desmistificados. As plantas domésticas, embora encantadoras, fazem muito pouco para purificar o ar de uma divisão, dizem os especialistas que estudam o ar que respiramos. Mas se fizermos uma pesquisa rápida na internet, podemos ficar com uma ideia diferente. Os sites mais conhecidos de decoração listam várias plantas que prometem remover toxinas e produtos químicos nocivos do ar, e muitos dos retalhistas online vendem plantas que purificam o ar. “Decidimos estudar esta questão mais aprofundadamente devido a todos os artigos e publicações que lemos na internet, em blogs de […]

‘De Hamse Wuiten’- The Legend

Now I’ll take you on a trip to the very root of my hometown, to the time when it almost sprouted freshly from the ground.  It was in the riverbanks of the calm river ‘Durme’, in the middle of Flanders, the people of Hamme found their habitat. Most of them where humble farmers, who thrived on the rich soil the shore provided.  One farmer, in particular, Kamiel, was a friend to everything that was covered in fur and feathers. Even the wildwood creatures, otherwise so shy, came to his call. They ate from his hand and even lay at his feet. The sun shone brightly on the day this marvelous little colored Flemish Jay landed on his shoulder. The two […]

Estudo mostra relação entre os incêndios na floresta tropical da Amazónia brasileira, peruana e boliviana e o aumento do degelo nos glaciares da cordilheira dos Andes.

The legend of the loch ness monster

The most famous Scottish Cryptid, the Loch Ness Monster. A man stands on the banks of the great loch, the sky is dark and the fog is rolling in. Something stirs in the water, he squints but he cannot see it clearly. Then suddenly he sees it, a creature peeking above the water, a creature or perhaps a beast? No, a monster. The Loch Ness Monster. Loch Ness is the second largest and deepest lochs (lakes) in the country, the water is dark and murky due to the high levels of peat in the area.

The history of one Balkan state

The history of the first Bulgarian state dates back to the 7th century. Bulgaria was founded by Asparukh in 681. The Christianisation of the state began at the end of the 9th century. At the beginning of the 11th century Bulgaria was conquered by Byzantium. After more than 100 years, a major uprising restored the Bulgarian state to form the Second Bulgarian Empire. Bulgaria was flourishing over the next two centuries until it disintegrated into two smaller states, which were eventually subjugated by the Ottoman Empire. The Turks eliminated Bulgarian knighthood, deprived Bulgarian citizens of their rights and subordinated the Church to the Patriarch of Constantinople. Bulgaria remained an integral Turkish territory for the next 500 years. A great uprising […]

The European project in the future

The future of the European Project depends on our acts now. As a young European citizen who has already participated in projects provided by the European Union, I know that the best way to support the European Project growth is taking part in diversified programmes such as studying abroad, voluntary service or any kinds of internships. These experiences give a new perspective for the future of young people. Mobility does not pose any difficulties anymore because it is a part of the projects mentioned above. Moreover, we are eager to apply for jobs abroad, to travel and stay in touch with all the people we have  met along our way. All the connections between the people and the sense of […]

The European Union: what future?

The coming months will be very important for the future of the European Union. The next elections to the European Parliament are scheduled for this year. Five years after the last elections, citizens of the European Union can vote for Members of the European Parliament (MEP). One of the major changes this year will be a reduced number of MEPs.
