В контексте референдума о выходе Великобритании из ЕС Brexit сегодня говорят по всей географии Европы. Страсти — страстями, но для того, чтобы понимать почему вообще будет проходить референдум нужно понимать английскую политическую культуру. Политики могут нагнетать обстановку, но это не более чем игра.

The transition from childhood to adulthood is very specific period, thus  it is important to have a clear picture of the particular health condition and risks affected by biological, psychological,  economic, social and cultural circumstances.

Этнографический музей Закарпатья расположился почти в самом центре Ужгорода, недалеко от старинного замка, который повидал многое на своём веку. Первое впечатление от музея, - почти как дома, в Риге, но чем глубже разбираешься в культуре, тем интереснее становится. Начать можно с того, что испокон веков в закарпатье проживали мирные люди, для которых быт и уют домашнего очага были впереди.

In a European democratic society or even elsewhere, in any democratic society, it seems unthinkable that journalists would have to submit work to state censors before publication. But for journalists from Burma, a country in Southeast Asia, this was a normal process they had to go through before publishing any newspaper.

As rain clouds sweep in from the west on a winter morning, the Ukrainian Black Sea town of Mykolayiv does not present the most welcoming picture. Up to three feet of standing water obscure the city’s main intersections, where stray dogs and homeless people rush to traverse four lanes of traffic before the next taxi driver hydroplanes through. Local newspapers are filled with advertisements touting the “dignified, legal pay” of $60 per month for janitorial work, or seeking “women 18-35” who can earn $120 per month as “online chat hostesses, English language skills preferred.”

Легко ли быть молодым и трудоустроенным в Евросоюзе? Если посмотреть на официальную статистику безработной молодёжи в ЕС, то общее число с лихвой перебьёт любую современную армию или маленькое государство. Так, только в одной Латвии более 50 тысяч безработной молодёжи. Представьте, это мог бы быть пятый по величине город в нашей стране. Но настолько ли ситуация драматичная как то показывают цифры, — ответ не очевидный.

2016 is the year of the Monkey in the Chinese horoscope. Following the footsteps of an explosive 2015, new major challenges for the European Union are coming. 2016 will be the year of answers, weather diplomatic or military, of challenges and solutions, but most of all, the year of reshaping political and social identities on the European agenda. It is becoming more clear that any lack in the European policies can hurt the stability of the European Union more than ever and that it can damage its values in a very hurtful manner.
