THE MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY By DARIA Technology SAVICHEVA Solutions Information (TRINITY language Instructor)

Summer

evokes different feelings and memories in people’s hearts and minds, from commonly known summer attributes like sea, sun, beach-volleyball with friends in the afternoon and painting the town red at some open-air night-club, to very unusual ones, for example a month of hitchhiking in the Crimean mountains, without any sign of civilization, just you and the nature, or exploring the dense rainforest in South America, it doesn’t matter how you prefer spending your vacation, summer is definitely the time of adventures, new revelations or of re-discovery of the old ones. If you say the word ‘summer’ to me, the first association that comes to my mind at the moment is Paris. About two years ago I was lucky to see it in its whole luxury and exquisiteness, and the best time for that is definitely summer. It was a European bus-tour around several countries. The inception of this miraculous journey was Czech Republic, and it was already my second visit to Prague, so I had an opportunity once again to eyeball one of the most gorgeous cities in the world. Next stop was the Bavarian-to-the-core city of Nurnberg in Germany, where you can know the world-famous Bavarian cuisine first hand. By the way it conquered my heart too, and my stomach, of course. After Nurnberg we travelled to a very quiet and cosy town of Luxemburg, which appeared to be, in spite of all my misconceptions, also a very beautiful one. Eventually, after spending a few hours there we headed for the actual target of our trip, Paris. On arriving there we had a bus tour around the city-centre, and, actually, it was good that we could sit because just when I saw the contours of the real Notre-Dame de Paris, I nearly passed out. The next day in the morning we had a walking tour where we could look more closely at this incredible cathedral and, of course, a number of other places of great historical interest. One more remarkable place is Versailles, it was unbelievable to imagine that centuries ago the greatest kings of France stood at the same spot as you are. This day we also visited Louvre and Montmartre. After that we had a lift at the Eiffel tower and had the opportunity to admire this magnificent city from the bird’s flight. But still, the most memorable place in Paris for me is Disneyland. Everything we see in Disney cartoons comes to real in this place, all these fairyland streets, gardens and parks, together with fairytale creatures contribute to the impression that wonders do happen. On our way back home we had stops in different small towns of Germany, Czech Republic and Poland. Incredible as it may seem, but after Paris it all came as blank and plain. To sum up, I would like to say that travelling not only broadens people’s outlook, but also helps to shed light on some new sides of yours, new impressions, feelings, that you’ve never had before. This is definitely one of the means of achieving success for somebody who is in a constant search for themselves. June 2012

THE MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY By NADIA PACHADZY Information Technology Solutions (TRINITY language Instructor)

Summertime

is the best period of a year. It always brings new emotions and adventures. Once my friend said “every summer has a story” so here is his Italian spicy story. Guys, my dear students, enjoy these 3 months to the full, thanks for a very prolific year of hard work hope to see you soon! A beautiful day of backpacking through Venice was coming to a close when my buddy Mark and I decided it was time to head to the train station. Our plan was to be in Florence by 9:00PM, grab some pizza, drink some wine, and then head to our hostel. Unfortunately there weren't any trains heading directly to Florence, so Mark asked at a help station how to get there. "Well, where do we go Mark?" "Uh... Bologni or something.""We're going to a town named after a meat?""Just check the train boards, it sounds something like that and it leaves at 5:15." Well lo' and behold, there it was, Bulloni! Except it was leaving at 5:10, not 5:15, and we only had a couple minutes to make it! We ran to the train and made it just in time, and there were even a few booths left available. An hour or two later, the train conductor stopped by to see our tickets and find out where we were going. "We're headed to Venice." Blank stare. "Venezia.". "You're going the opposite direction.""Well we're going to Bulloni for a connecting train."He stared at us like we were idiots. "I think you wanted Bologne. Oops. By the time we got off the train and found one headed in the proper direction, it was getting late and the number of trains was dwindling. Around 10PM we found ourselves back in Venice. Around 2AM we pulled into Bologne. And about 3AM, a short, portly Italian man entered our cabin, gave us some creepy glances, and then commenced what can only be described as a cacophony of noise sounding vaguely like a rabbit being sucked slowly through a two inch hole. Two hours later, we took our first steps in Florence. We stayed there for one day. So this is how my friends made their way to an adventurous summer vocation. That always puts smile on my face and I want to encourage you to pull off this summer cause that’s 3 months without books and teachers, 92 days of total freedom, 2208 hours of complete and warm happiness 13 8480 minutes of satisfaction and good weather and on balance 7948800 brightest seconds you can have this year. Get a buzz out of this summer. Making memories changing life!

The place that can exhaust Information Technology Solutions all your superlatives

A lot of people that know me can remind me that I was always using derogative terms while talking about Turkey.

And make no mistake I was not in the league of its admirers despite the fact that I have never been there. However, my curiosity eventually got a better side of me and decided to give it a go. So, things panned out in the most sensational way! For starters, I loved every moment of it: Ephesus Archaeological Site, Myra, Pmukkale, Cleopatra Pool and so on. Profound culture and heritage hold sway in Turkey. I witnessed and became the part of the traditional marriage ceremony and dancing (it took me a day to shake off my newly acquired husband). I drank and tasted something that I could not imagine eating even in my wildest dream. Take just one example: the goat’s horns. I guess now you got my message)))) The customs that overwhelm this country abound. The origin of the distinctive flag of Turkey is the reflection on the pool of blood of the moon and the star which helps to explain the blood-shed and conquests that Osman Empire had to endure and propagate. The only drawback that I have encountered was the distinctive Turkish language which is disguised as the English one. In one restaurant I had to talk to 5 waiters before I got the order I liked. It was a pervasive practice to have English-Turkish conversations starting from the airport. Thus, if you are still flirting with the idea of whether to go to Turkey or not, do it! You are invited to wander and lose yourself in the beauty of this land. You will be in for a treat! By Isayeva Anna (Director of Studies)

Petra Jordan Most inspiring ancient city of Jordan, Petra built inside towering rocks is also in danger of damaging due to breathe of the visitors. The Nabataeans created these rock-cut structures around 1200BC. Today, the Petra is the most remarkable spot to visit before it disappears.

The Everglades USA The Everglades are 2.5 million–acre natural subtropical wetlands in the southern U.S. state of Florida. These lands are continuously facing threat of farming and water diversion that has reduced its size to half. Have an ecotour to the Everglades to enjoy its beauty before it gets vanished.

The Dead Sea Jordan The sea of death or the salt sea is the deepest hyper saline lake in the world that is filled with therapeutic minerals but is in extensive danger to disappear within next 50 years. The Dead Sea is believed to be shrinking 13 inches per year therefore it could be better to plan a visit to it.

Taj Mahal India Taj Mahal that unfolds the grandeur of Muslim art in India is facing the constant risk of flooding due to located besides Yamuna River. Its precious white marble façade is also blackening with air pollution and the interior is also weakening with time. Almost three to four million tourists visit Taj Mahal every year to admire its magnificence.

The Valley of Kings Egypt The Valley of Kings in Egypt is at risk to disappear within 150 to 500 years due to humidity and fungus that is eroding the tombs gradually and also the increasing tourism is causing more damage to the tombs at west bank of the Nile.

The Maldives The Maldives is most prone to risk of extinction due to global warming because it is the lowest-lying country in the world. If the ice caps will melt, the sea level will rise too much to inundate the land.

Venice Venice, known as “City of Water” or “The Floating City” has been sinking slowly but the rising sea levels have worsened the situation. Floods also keep hitting the Venice making visitors wonder that how long it would stay over water. June 2012

The research conducted by Art Glenberg from Arizona University spells out that your own conscience can be influenced by a number of simple exercises. Take just one example, if during the conversation you are holding a cup of warm coffee or tea you become more emotional and open. So, if you need your audience to favour you, offer them some refreshments! Here are a number of tricks to aid you to gain a better footing in life. Goal 1: to look more confident The recipe: place yourself in an armchair with one hand on the arm of the chair and the other on the back. Keep your legs crossed and hold an upright back. Really, the more space you take, the more likely is that you will send a message of confidence and poise. There was conducted a very simply experiment to validate this theory. The various rank employees were seated in the room and a panel of outsiders had to identify the hierarchy of this organisation. All observers in unison selected the cleaner, who had an above-mentioned posture, as a General Manager! Goal 2: to prevent a scandal The recipe: Nod your head as if you are agreeing with something. Indeed, this is a very calming gesture that will pacify your opponent in no time and will ease his/her frustration and impatience even if you are not going to give any ground away. Goal 3: brainstorming The recipe: Hold an edge of the table with only your thumb on top of it. Make an effort as if you are going to lift it. Such a gesture activates the part of your brain responsible for the creative thinking and kick starts the generation of the ideas. Vice versa, if you press the table downside, you automatically switch off your ingenuity. Goal 4: to concentrate The recipe: Doodle. This simple exercise that is frowned upon in schools and universities fosters attention spans and helps to digest the received information. Scientists have proved that doodling betters your concentration on 30%. Goal 5: to cope with a problem or the task The recipe: Make a few steps backwards The experiment showed that people who were offered some test took a few steps backwards and received much better results following this pattern. Scientists believe that this action activates the brain as it urges it to see a full picture. I guess that knowing this basic stuff you can afford to negotiate your future and overcome any bumps on the road. Anna Isayeva (loosely based on L’etoile) June 2012 June 2012

The stars aligned the way that your productivity is much to be desired, so don’t let your efforts go down the drain – explore the seaside! Virgo (22 August – 22 September) June gives ample opportunities to pamper yourselves. However, starting from the beginning of July, the time of indulgence will be over and you will work by the sweat of the brow and will even make good money! Libra (22 September – 22 October) My advice is to combine long-expected holidays with acquisition of new knowledge and aesthetic satisfaction. The outcome of the trip can be a long-term romantic involvement with the foreigner, the foundation for which will be underpinned by common understanding and interests. Scorpio (22 October- 22 November) The first half of the summer will keep you from having any rest: all efforts have to be channelled at the development of your own business.

(22 November – 22 December) Don’t rush into holiday-making as you will be busy with setting on the right path your personal life. Venus will not only favour you in finding your partner but will also help in fortifying your relationships. The main thing is not to let it go. Travelling will do you good too but preferably to the home seas! Capricorn (22 December – 22 January) To accomplish the aim you set for yourselves, you will have to undergo a lot of tedious and monotonous work. Nevertheless, the settlement of professional queries will not prevent you from success in the personal life. There is even a possibility of a looming work romance Aquarius (22 January – 22 February) Commit yourself to creativity this summer. It is high time you wrote, composed or painted something even if you have never had a fixation on this before. In July there is a likelihood of appearance in your life of a person you will have to care for the rest of your life! Pisces (22 February – 22March) You will kick start your summer with love frustrations and will end it with a new crush. You will manage to feel a kaleidoscopic amount of emotions just throughout these three months. Aries (22 March – 22 April) The best part of the summer will be spent in a fuss and rush. You will have new meetings, acquaintances and many promises. On balance, you will not have a single minute to spare. Taurus (22 April – 22 May) To make good money you will have to do some elbow grease. Even if you are not too willing to do it, you will be left no other choice but to comply. Think about how you can go on a shopping spree afterwards. June 2012
