The mules tied with a rope are placed precisely midway between two stacks of hay – the same in size and quality. Further, the Tale clearly demonstrates that cooperation is better than conflict. When each mule tries alone to reach a stack of hay, the two mules remain hungry, both lose (lose-lose solution). When they sit and ponder together – without anyone imposing their decision upon them – they in tandem reach first one, then another stack of hay and thus feed well. In effect, the two mules earn (win-win solution).

What kind of job? What are the skills required? How much does it pay for how many hours? Does it provide more security or less? What are the benefits it offers? Is the job really necessary? Does the job provide meaning to those tasked with it? Are jobs and work the same thing? Is there work to do that’s more important than what the job involves? Is working in the job actually better than not working at all?”

From ancient Greece, when Plato wrote his book Symposium, everything is sympotein (drink together) – banquet, cocktail, get together party, liquid discussion. Plato’s Symposium in Athens gathers philosophers who discussed the nature of knowledge and love, they eat and drink wine – sometimes only drink. During that time, in an ancient Greek custom, the Symposiarch (“Chairman” of symposium) diluted wine. If the talks are serious, pour some more water, generally preparing three “crater” – the first for health, the second for pleasure, the third for sleep, more than three crater lead to bad behavior. And Symposiarch is not responsible for that.

In an interview entitled “The crisis, the failure of liberalism and the future of Europe” (Geopolitics, January 2014), the famous French philosopher, politician and writer Alain de Benoist says: “The marriage institution is designed to connect men and women with purpose of reproduction of human being … I think the classic marriage should include only heterosexual couples. Homosexual marriages will create a number of problems, including those related to adoption, artificial reproduction, kinship, etc. But when I mention anthropological change, I mean the spread of gender theory that emerged in America and trying to call into question the very existence of different sexes. According to this view, if a person was born male or female, has no influence on sexual behavior and the human being at birth is “neutral”…

Melody Gilbert: This is Nikoleta from Bulgaria. As you head out for your Labor Day weekend, think about the people who are doing the work at the summer resorts all around the U.S. The people making your meals or cleaning your hotel room might be college students from Eastern Europe or the Balkans or Ukraine trying to pay their tuition and help their struggling families back home. That’s what The Summer Help documentary is about– the challenges faced by these students as they take their first plane ride and then adjust to life in America. At their university in Bulgaria they are future politicians, bankers and journalists. But in America, they are just “the help.”

Children’s books are often gorgeously illustrated, with stories that often impart lessons intended to help children learn how they can believe in themselves. It’s through books that children learn lessons of the heart; they’re captivated by the illustrations and the words while the theme, guided into their consciousness through the open door of their imaginations, quietly eases into their young minds and spreads seeds of compassion for others. But in The Fairy of Colors , author Verginia Genova and illustrator Veselka Velinova transcend the usual literary illustrative form to create a tale with hand-painted art.

F.M. Dostoyevsky, Peyo Yavorov, Hristo Photev and Konstantin Pavlov have given me more than George Palade, Albert Claude, Rita Levi-Montalcini and Günter Blobel (great scientists, Nobel Prize winners). This is a paraphrase of Einstein’s great thought: “Dostoevsky has given me more than Gauss.”
I wish students were acquainted with: The Little Prince by Exupéry, Winnie the Pooh by Alan Milne, Alice by Lewis Carroll, We, the Sparrows by Yordan Radichkov, Don Quixote by Cervantes, Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky, Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis, There is no Such a Book by (Dr) Lyudmil Stanev.

– Yes, here we talk about something much more profound. Today, this is also designated precision medicine, which is an emerging approach for disease therapy and prevention that takes into account variability in genes, environment and lifestyle for each person. Thus, the Centre for Translational Medicine and Cell Therapy, opened quite recently, at St. Marina University Hospital in Varna is an initiative with high scientific and practical application potential and prospects.
