Medical science offers no treatments to cure Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, ALS and other neuro degenerative diseases. There are also no preventive medicines available. Dr. David Schubert, Professor and Laboratory Head at the Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute, has been researching Alzheimer‘s to bring relief to those millions who are in desperate need of help. We have an opportunity to interview Dr. Schubert.

Central Park – a notable landmark in New York City, a green oasis (sometimes also referred to as the lungs of New York) surrounded by skyscrapers. With a sizeable area of 843 acres, it might be assumed that the park was always a part of the Commissioners' Plan. The opposite, however, was the case.  New York City’s population expanded rapidly before the second half of the 19th century, and the growing need to escape from the rush and noise of the city became the question of the day.

Florian Zsok of the University of Zurich has dedicated years to seeking out answers to the question of the relationships between couples and has published his studies to great acclaim. We have an opportunity to interview him and hear about his insights.

Home Made Gifts

Home made gifts have been drifting into the "unwanted" category. No wonder, when they have so often consisted of strange knitted shapes and patterns, typically lacking imagination. Time to put an end to it. The rebirth of crafts is the topic of the day. Home made presents can be the best choice and having no need to make them from scratch.

Our previous interview with Mark Gordon was dedicated to the exciting world of shipwrecks, miles underwater. It offered an insight into the work of Odyssey Marine Exploration, their team, and the high-tech equipment they use.  This second segment focuses on the Cultural Heritage Convention, the ownership of treasures that are discovered and where these treasures are to be found.

Time - the very concept of it has fascinated and provoked human beings since the very beginning. And so does the idea of traveling in time. The main protagonists of these movies were granted certain privileges of time that worked in their favour. What would it look like if people could travel in time, or if they didn't age, or if they grew up the other way round...?  Find out in our weekly movie tips.

When else than in winter – when everything is so quiet, and life feels slow and unreal. Waking up gradually, looking from the window where, preferably, there is a white snowy layer . . . and starting the day with a long feast of a brunch. Is there anything better?

TREASURE – The very word evokes a feeling of adventure and legend. Scientists, anthropologists, and governments are as enamored with deep sea treasures as the average person. Odyssey Marine Exploration, founded in 1994 and listed on the NASDAQ, is an organization that comprises professionals, scientists, and technicians and is dedicated to underwater and deep sea exploration of treasure and minerals. We have the opportunity to interview their CEO, Mark Gordon.
