ROMANIA

The scientific study of the Romanian language has been begun by the founders of Romance Philology in the mid-nineteenth century. Later, the origin and development of the native language were the subject of a number of studies of Romanian linguists who wanted to find out the patterns of development and enrichment of the language and solve issues Romanian relations with Romanesque and Slavic. However, in the bourgeois-landlord Romania few scientists were able to some extent to overcome the idealistic construction of Romanian linguistics. This applies primarily to such researchers as A. Chihak A. Lambrior, BP Hasdeu, X. Tiktin et

I just want to be left alone

From a young age Schneider was not used to deny yourself the pleasure to eat something tasty, even nutritious. The legendary Coco Chanel, acquainted with the then little-known in France, European actress, was adamant: to lose weight quickly! And Romy had to say goodbye to the rolls.

However, critical acclaim and

Tester’s notes

Skids. Drifts. Oversteer. Churlish, childish stuff that is inefficient, irresponsible, wears through tyres and slows cars down. All true. A colleague came back to the office the other day and reported that an industry test driver had told him one of the “problems” with car journalists is their obsession with going sideways. True, too, perhaps.

An opera director’s apartment in Cape Town is the perfect backdrop for his creative lifestyle

Matthew Wild was furiously packing his suitcase. His flight to Stockholm was at 4pm and it was already 3pm when we popped in for a chat at his apartment in Cape Town’s City Bowl. This isn’t the first time he’s travelled to Sweden in a rush. With a career in theatre direction, he’s taken his productions to playhouses as far removed as Australia and Dublin, and from his trips abroad he’s picked up a love for design, especially that from Scandinavia. When he gets back

Pike I caught quite satisfy my harsh tackle, at the end of which hung no less severe, time-tested bait — rusty spoons, turntables 20-gram head or permanent silicone «Relax Hoof» is completely replaced my lures of all types and recessed, Which I sincerely considered expensive toys for the rich.

The main advantage of the fishing line, and later — the cord all these years I thought strength: it’s also great — not to worry, that the line can break even the biggest fish! And if she does not bite — that in fact a thick cord is always useful to tear the lure of driftwood, sometimes together with the snag, as a last resort, broken or straightening the hook. Pull any other requirements for this component tackle me, to be honest, even had not occurred, why? Pike, in my experience, do not pay much attention to something that is
