Go green

Recently, I've watched two cognitive videos about environmental situation in the world. The first video «Environment - protecting our habitat resources» presents some issues, which are related to the improvement of our environment. Professors from the University of Sheffield are in process of finding solutions, which will help to protect the nature and avoid an environmental catastrophe. They are talking about irreversible climate change and dire consequences of it. In their University, they try to find out the way of using renewable energy instead of fossil-fuel sources. They elaborate eco-friendly design for different products, which will help to change our ways towards nature.

The second video «Seed communities: Eco-village Experiments Around the World» is an interview with Professor Karen Litfin from the University of Washington. She talks about different eco-villages, especially about 14 of them, which she visited. Changing weather patterns, global warming and greenhouse effect are the consequences of people's unfriendly lifestyle. But in these seed communities, people try to avoid everything, which is harmful to the environment: live in eco-homes, use alternative energy sources, plant and harvest food themselves, do gardening. They support each other and that's their advantage. Despite not having a lot of money, they share everything they have. Karen said that it doesn't mean that we must create eco-villages, but we need to take the principle of their eco-friendly lifestyle.

Refugee Crisis

   Have you ever thought about migration? Why does it happen? What are the reasons why people must make a change in their lives and set out such an extreme and unpredictable journey?

   Today, the world is facing a displacement crisis. More than 65 million people are forcibly displaced as a result of violent conflicts and natural disasters. Wars and persecutions are the main reasons behind the refugee crises all over the world.
   Nowadays, a lot of us have a desire to be in power and as a result, suffer innocent people. Moreover, we prejudice against some people who are different from us. Unfortunately, there are a lot of examples.

Because of war, this boy in the picture leaves his native country. It's obvious that he has feelings of nostalgia, he lost contact with his family and friends. It's unfair that he must get around different countries, because, as it happens, he can face hostility towards him there.


However, he's lucky. He won't have a trip overseas.

Last year more than 5,000 people lost their lives at sea as they took on perilous journeys to flee from war, poverty, and persecution - often all three. Nevertheless, they still do make it across. This year, more than 350,000 immigrants arrived in Europe via the sea. They seek political asylum there.


I loathe inactivity and indifference of the local authorities. Because of this refugees crisis also suffer a lot of children. Some of them are uprooted, but those who continue living in isolated areas, have to get accustomed to having a lack of water, clothes, food and other vital things.



In near future, I look forward to seeing a real action for humanity, not just talk as we have so far seen. I don't mean opening borders and campaigning. I mean making different political decisions to solve the refugees crisis.


   If I could appeal to everyone, it would be: Stop killing people! Stop violence! Stop discrimination of the ethnic minority! Remember, that because of our cruel behavior millions of people must migrate and died as a result. Let's stop refugees crisis and leave at peace with each other!

Media.Sport at RGL

Hello, everyone!

In this evening edition of our student's magazine, I'll try to keep you informed about some events, which take place in our university and you will be able yo read a feature article and some sports reports.


It emerged that every week a lot of different events are organized in our academy. For instance, we had a great sports competition a few days ago — Recreation. Students, who took part in it, won a lot of praise for the participation. I want to make the point that our students demonstrated that they are physically strong, fit and active. 


I also was a participant and can say that it was a good opportunity to try my hand. But today I tried to be a journalist and try to take an exclusive interview. And now I'd like to share with you the results of this opinion poll. Karina Shevtsova – a student of RGL department - agreed to reveal us the truth:


- I'd really like to take part in different sports competitions and I was happy that the captain of our team gave the credit to me and I was a part of our department's team.
- Karina, it's needless to say that all our students are in a good shape, but was it difficult for you to take such kind of distance? Is CrossFit a difficult kind of sport?
- I need to say that we were on the rocks because it's a bit difficult to combine different kinds of physical activity. But only if we realized our ambitions, we would celebrate the achievements.


If to talk about having success, I can't be economical with the truth that our team wasn't highly praised by critics. Rumour has it that sport is not for RGL students, they can never tell! I'm sure that they will speak highly of us and we will receive a lot of nominations.

Good luck, my dear RGL!

Her story.

Mother Teresa

It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.”

Mother Teresa

Nowadays everyone has to fight for his life because of our cruel world. We don't live in the peace, but a lot of people are at war. Unfortunately, there are very few peace activists, who try to change this situation. But one person won the respect of me. It's Mother Teresa – a living saint who offered a great example and inspiration to the world.
She was a Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world. Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. At a young age, she felt a calling to be a nun and serve through helping the poor.
There she came in useful for helping poor people and stood up for them. She made a useful contribution when she had opened the Missionaries of Charity. In 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitutes a threat to peace.” But she didn’t attend the ceremonial banquet, she asked that the $192,000 fund be given to the poor. Until her very last illness she was active in traveling around the world to the different branches of The Missionaries of Charity. She visited vast numbers of countries and her actions had a major impact on people's lives.
When she was asked how to promote world peace, she replied:”Go home and love your family”. If we want to produce the results, we must begin from us. Than, success is guaranteed.
Reading about Mother Teresa's life, I understood that if we want to bring about peace in the world, we have to put up a heroic fight against animosity and enmity, our hostile behavior and change our attitude to other people.

Money & Finance


Today I had an opportunity to play the game SPENT, where I tried to live on a shoestring and tighten my belt. I was really surprised how it's difficult to make ends meet when you have only $1000 per month. I was broke and didn't have a steady income. I had to save money at the expense of refusing to get a health insurance. Moreover, I bought in bulk just to economize. My money was tight despite the fact that I didn't splash it out on different things. I kept track of my outgoings and, as a result, I made it through the month with $365.
I understood that we need to be careful about our spending and thrifty because money doesn't grow on trees
