With the Summer School Beijing 2017 just around the corner, we are filled with great excitement and anticipation for what promises to be a most spectacular event. In the build-up to the educational and inspirational series of master classes and workshops, we continue to interview the experts who will be presenting on their specialist topics. One of the main trainers during the Summer School of this year is Mrs. Dorotea Milas, Lecturer at Zagreb School of Business, Croatia. Mrs. Milas research interests are in the fields of philosophy (ethics), religious science, communication and cultural studies. She has participated in national and international scientific and professional conferences and has published several scientific and professional papers.
Stand-up is becoming more and more popular all over the world, and a lot of venues hold "open mic" events where those who want to perform for the audience can try their luck. Stand-up comedy is now taking hold in Central and Eastern Europe, and we wonder therefore what it takes to be a stand-up comedian there? Is it true that they can live by performing just a few days in a month? How long does it take to work up the jokes, and is it hard to prepare the jokes and not to offend anyone at the same time? We have spoken about this and a lot of other stereotypes about stand-up with a stand-up comedian, Siavash Alaghmandan Motlagh. He is originally from Iran, but he lives in Slovakia, and speaking for himself he says that he is extremely forgetful, he lacks focus, and he is amazed by the wonders of life on planet earth.
Some professions can be learnt and for others you have to be gifted. About this we are going to talk with the renowned Psychic and Medium, Danielle Egnew. Let's try to uncover the secrets of the unseen world, that according to Mrs. Egnew she experiences first hand through her extraordinary Psychic abilities.
Young Lazar Jovanovic (25), a student at the University of Technical Sciences, had a hazelnut farm... This story could begin just like this, but makes no sense at all without adding the fact that Lazar’s farm was not in the same city where he lived. So he decided to invent a system that could water his precious hazelnuts remotely. It took him more than two years to research, develop, and test something that was just an idea, and it would not have been possible without a friend who was a programmer. Today, he is the owner of the Smart Watering Company, which helps farmers to irrigate their farms using only a text message! Read how he did it in an interview for Youth Time magazine.
