    OPTIMISE YOURSELF!

    Nowadays, the desire to optimise ourselves affects almost all spheres of our life: from education to diet, from career to how we handle relationships.

  • THE FORGOTTEN GENOCIDE

    THE FORGOTTEN GENOCIDE

    So far no one has been brought to justice for crimes committed during the Spanish Civil War or Franco’s regime. Now, an Argentinean initiative has launched an attempt to prosecute officials. Will they succeed? We look at one of the darkest chapters in recent European history: the organised extermination and political cleansing during the Spanish Civil War and General Franco’s subsequent dictatorship. In the past, attempts to prosecute the perpetrators of the crimes have been unsuccessful. In 2013, Argentinean judge […]

    Biologists and computer linguists team up for the first time to decode the language of orcas and launch a scientific expedition into the mesmerizing inlets of Northern Canada and Norway.
