A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon Bloomberg's The Million-Dollar Hacker video on YouTube. After watching this video, I got really interested in the theme of the video: Bug Hunting. So I came up with a challenge in my mind: I’ll try to become a Bug Hunter in seven days. Now, a week later after I’ve ended the challenge, I can definitely say that Bug Hunting was way harder than I expected it to be.

One of the most common dishes from Russia is definitely dumplings. Mostly filled with meat, potatoes, or even fruits, there are many of them in different forms and sizes. Even if they might look somehow equal, their taste is not. As a person coming from Russia, I’ve eaten already lots of the different dumpling varieties, and I can say for sure their taste is not comparable with each other. Let me introduce you to the variety of the different dumplings, their dough, filling, and, of course, their taste.

Due to the Coronavirus, the carnival in Rio de Janeiro had to be canceled this year. The german carnival was canceled as well because of the virus which made the whole of Germany really sad. Carnival in Germany is quite a big deal for most people living here, especially for people living in a rural region. Lots of marches, parties, and festivals had to pass this year and wait till the next year. Let me explain how a carnival in Germany looks like and why it’s not for everyone a pleasant time.

Learning languages isn’t a big deal nowadays: Every school teaches multiple languages students can choose from, special language schools offer a huge variety of languages from all around the world and there are plenty of books, guides, and videos which can teach you a language you want to learn. Even though there is such a big amount of possibilities to learn languages, some people don’t learn more than one additional language. Thanks to our world language English, there seems no need for other languages anymore because nearly every person on the planet can speak at least some words in English…

Experience the feeling of flying, being super strong, or safe the world: everything possible with the skill of controlling your own dreams. Some of you might have already heard about Lucid Dreaming. In general, Lucid dreaming means to dream but with the difference that you know you’re dreaming. It’s like playing a video game: You have full control of yourself but it doesn’t matter what you do, it has no impact on the real world… or maybe it has?

Benefits of Lucid Dreaming

What does Lucid Dreaming offer you? Well, there are some aspects you might want to know about:

We often find ourselves stuck into an endless hustle in our lives: work, family, hobbies, everything consisting of mostly small, but annoying tasks that waste our time. Often you can’t find any rest and slowly you’re noticing that you’re feeling “dead inside”, you’re like a well without water, every energy capacity is gone and you feel uncreative. This emptiness and stress inside you are exhausting and it costs you your nerves to stay focused. The only right thing to do is as simple as it seems: take a break and reboot yourself.

With this, I don't mean the break you’re…

The gaming market is separated into two worlds: on the one side, there are big names like PlayStation, Nintendo, and Microsoft, which produce big games, played by millions of players all around the world— the so-called AAA titles. Whereas the other side is a more subtle niche, also know as the Indie market. Most Indie games development companies are rather small, unknown, and neither have the resources nor the manpower to produce massive games where a player spends weeks and months playing. Most people would say that the ones producing the best games are usually the “Big 3” named above…

About three years ago, this dog suddenly appeared in my life: His name is Pushkin (after the poet Pushkin from Russia, also with curly hair) and he instantly hopped into the hearts of my family, my neighbors, and friends.
