Shein – Fast fashion at its worst 

“Fast fashion isn’t free. Someone, somewhere is paying.” – Lucy Siegle  It’s a widespread fact that fast fashion is problematic. Poor quality of the clothes, severe work conditions in the producing countries and the promotion of excessive consumption through unbelievable low prices. But what if the fastest growing fashion brand in the Western World is […]

Më shumë teknologji, më pak para

Është e vështirë të imagjinohet që artistët të krijojnë muzikë pa e publikuar atë në shërbimet e transmetimit. Për dëgjuesit, është një lehtësi e madhe: pa u larguar nga shtëpia, duke blerë një album të ri, ata mund të dëgjojnë artistët e tyre të preferuar me një klikim. Fatkeqësisht, jo gjithçka duket aq e lehtë, […]

More technology, less money

It is hard to imagine artists creating music without publishing it on streaming services. For listeners, it is a great convenience: without leaving home, buying a new album, they can listen to their favourite artists with one click. Unfortunately, not everything seems so easy, because as it turns out, musicians do not earn more on […]

The greatest threat to youth – radicalization

“Preventing the conflicts of tomorrow means changing the mindset of youth today.”- Graça Machel While most of us are familiar with the concept of radicalization, it is often difficult to define it. We also narrow down its meaning to a specific group, e.g., terrorist or religious groups, which does not reflect the phenomenon’s complexity. What […]

The thousand and one lives of pajamas

Pajamas, pyjamas, PJs, night suits – whatever we call them, pajamas are part of our everyday wear. Pajamas have been beloved by all for centuries. In winter, fuzzy socks and fluffy pajamas are the perfect outfit to enjoy cozying for a good night’s sleep or for those who like spending their day lounging around the […]


How time is flying! We are already in the new year of 2022. Technically speaking, it’s not one year that changes, but one day. Yet we like to use this new number as an occasion to work on ourselves: Should I go to the gym more often? This year I will eat healthily and spend […]

Импресии од изложбата на Васко Ташковски

Васко Ташковски е еден од водечките претставници на надреализмот, фантастичното сликарство, еколошките и космичките теми во македонската ликовна уметност, а според мене и многу други, еден од најдобрите и најимагинативните уметници во целиот свет! Веќе еден месец, во Даут-пашин амам изложени се негови слики, акварели и цртежи од сите негови творечки фази. Роден во 1937та, […]

What’s the deal with football? – Trying to understand global phenomena 

I am not a football fan, and I have never been. But one of my clearest childhood memories is the World Cup half-final from 2014. Do you remember? The German National Team defeated Brazil in its very own country with 7:1 in front of the world’s eyes. The fact that the simple number “7:1” still […]
