Незабаром на вулицях США з'являться роботи-патрульні


Незабаром на вулицях США з'являться роботи-патрульні. Зробити фантазії голівудських режисерів реальністю, обіцяють розробники американської компанії Knightscope. Вони уже розпочали випробовування нового робота - патрульного, який допоможе поліцейським підтримувати безпеку у торговельних центрах, на стадіонах та в університетських містечках Америки.
У нас в гостях був Даня. Він пішов - і будинок звалився. Усі шурупи витягнув за 10 хвилин мовчки. Вкручували 20 хвилин. Дані 3 роки, майбутній майстер чи будівельник. Хмм, до нього ніхто про це і не задумався. А чому б і ні? Розвиваємо логічне мислення.

Movie Night "Shakespeare in Love"


Movie Night "Shakespeare in Love"

On June 23, 2015 the members of the Movie Club with Natalia Maslavchuk enjoyed watching British-American romantic comedy-drama film directed by John Madden. The film depicts an imaginary love affair involving Viola de Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow) and playwright William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) while he was writing Romeo and Juliet. Several characters are based on historical people, and many of the characters, lines, and plot devices allude to Shakespeare's plays. Shakespeare in Love won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Gwyneth Paltrow), and Best Supporting Actress (Judi Dench).

A Discussion on 'Multiculturalism: Multicultural Countries and Cities' with Olha S.

A great discussion on 'Multiculturalism: Multicultural Coutries and Cities'.
Can multiculturalism result in a country losing its identity? In a multicultural society, should newcomers do what they can to assimilate into the culture of their new country / city? We discussed about the good things about multiculturalism, a “cultural mosaic", ‘multicultural minority’", ‘multicultural thinking”, what problems multiculturalism brings to a country /city, etc. What about you? Would you prefer your country to be multicultural or of just one culture? What do you think about a situation of multiculturalism in your city today?

Topic: Multiculturalism, Multicultural Countries and Cities
Leader: Olha S.
June 18, 2015
Multiculturalism describes the existence, acceptance, or promotion of multiple cultural traditions within a single jurisdiction, usually considered in terms of the culture associated with an ethnic group. (2) group differences and similarities related to variations in race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical abilities, social class, age and other socially meaningful categorizations.
Discussion: 
1. What springs to mind when you hear the word ‘multiculturalism’? What are the good things about multiculturalism? Is it possible for a country to avoid multiculturalism today? Why / Why not? How would the world be different if there was no multiculturalism in any country? 
2. Do you think multiculturalism will eventually lead to a single world of a mixed race? What is a “cultural mosaic?” What is ‘multicultural minority’? What is ‘multicultural thinking”?
3. Where in the world do you think multiculturalism works best? Do you think multiculturalism can ever be reversed? How does multiculturalism differ from other techniques for managing race and ethnic relations? What nations are on the territory of Ukraine? Do you think that Vinnytsia is a multicultural city? Provide examples of ways your city is inviting to people of color, other nations or people from other Ukrainian cities?
4. Do you think the original culture of a society that has become multicultural like the change? Is multiculturalism good for world peace and understanding? 
5. What problems does multiculturalism bring to a country /city? Would you prefer your country to be multicultural or of just one culture? What do you think about a situation of multiculturalism in your city today?
6. Can multiculturalism result in a country losing its identity? In a multicultural society, should newcomers do what they can to assimilate into the culture of their new country / city?
7. Is multiculturalism a threat to some countries / your country / your city? How good is diversity/multicultural training? The problem of prejudice and discrimination is as old as human history itself. Is it a discouraging and hopeless situation nowadays? Why do people get so upset and emotional about these issues?
