Tim Burton: average or brilliant? / Cinema
Tim Burton’s career is the ultimate revenge of the art nerd. Mr. Burton, the self-professed alienated child of a dysfunctional family in Burbank, Calif., who funneled his loneliness, pain and grief into drawing cartoons, has found fame, fortune and a beautiful companion (Helena Bonham Carter) by telling cinematic tales of sensitive misfits triumphing over, or succumbing to, a world of repressive mediocrity.
Roald Dahl: 5 Things You Didn’t Know / Literature
Born in Wales and named after one of the most celebrated explorers in Norwegian history, Roald Dahl was one of the most versatile English writers of the 20th century. He may be best known today for his enormously popular contributions to children's literature (such as Matilda, The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and James and the Giant Peach), but he also wrote the screenplays to two adaptations of Ian Fleming novels (You Only Live Twice and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), and he wrote...
Miami Cuban Dog Pitbull / Music
This rapper explains the reason behind choosing his stage name, saying that the dog “bites to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose. And they’re outlawed in Dade County. They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.” And he is the dog, he is Pitbull.
The Populism Problem / Lifetime
It’s been the political equivalent of an intervention: in recent weeks, Democrats have been bombarded with advice about how they should reinvent their economic agenda. The electorate, we hear, wants Barack Obama to be more of an economic populist but less of an ambitious reformer. He has to aggressively create jobs but also be less spendthrift. This advice may be contradictory, but then so are the economic...

A Little Bit Married / For women
The other night, I was having dinner with a friend, and over dessert she mentioned how unusual it is that I’ve never lived with a significant other.

You can do it! Ukrainian explores US / Voyage
Today people live in an informational society. One can get information almost about everything - just click the button on your laptop and that is all. This is called “The Global Village,” researched by Herbert Marshall McLuhan. I am sure that people in Dublin, Rome, Kyiv and Moscow, in the north, east, west and south, know about the United States of America, about the educational potential of the country.
The Easter Bunny / Tradition
When Easter approaches and symbols of chicks, eggs and rabbits abound, do you ever wonder what the rabbit has to do with Easter and why he is often depicted carrying a basket of eggs?
Five eco-crimes we commit every day / Ecology
A mid all the talk of how to prevent catastrophic global warming, it is easy to forget who is ultimately responsible for the mess we find ourselves in. I have long argued that climate change begins at home. Each of us in the developed world has played our part in creating this problem and, while there is no doubt that coordinated global action is needed to tackle it, we can each be part of the solution.
The Sweet Health Perks of Chocolate / Health
I recently spotted a bumper sticker that quips, “If I must die, let it be death by chocolate.” It’s good for a chuckle, but evidence is mounting that chocolate can benefit the heart in many ways and may even help you to live longer.
A recent magazine survey, interviewed fifty bartenders and they were asked if they could identify a customer’s personality on what drinks they ordered? Although interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts.

I teach my child English: Speaking / English for kids
It was time to introduce speaking. Ooh! It turned out not that horrible. As long as you know the main words from your daily routine. You can do it with regular everyday things, “It’s time to change your diaper”, “where is your favorite rattle?”, “what has your mummy done with your baby...
