Freelancing as an activity originated in the U.S., and this country continues to lead in terms of the number of specialists-freelancers.

Historians seem to be the most cruel people. They accept wars and millions of deaths as facts. I am sorry, it is kind of joke. I usually laugh at it together with my friends. I will be a bachelor of History in few months. You know… I learnt the history of crusades, the Hundred Years' War, the national liberation movement in Ukraine during existence of Cossacks, the First World War, the Second World War. I am able to talk with you about all of this as it is a story.. B...

The recent Voices of Youth debates are dedicated to theme of internship. And the topic exactly sounds like this: “More and more young people choose to do unpaid internships, hoping that more work experience will increase their value on the job market. In your opinion, is there any value in unpaid internships? ” I would like to express my own mind towards it. I think there is obviously a value in such kind of internship. And not only “any”, but a big one! I w...

I have not written an article on the topic “Is it controversial” and I think it is time to do it. The last days discussions with another students about education in Ukraine suggest me an idea to share with you. The main issue which was considered is tuition fee for higher education. There is about 2.7 million students and more than 950 higher education institutions in Ukraine. Country’s expenditure on education is 6.2 % of GDP. It is more than in Italy, Germany, Franc...

Let me introduce the city where I study - Lviv. It was founded in 1256 by the King Danylo. The name of the city was given in honour of a son of Danylo - Leo which means "lion". There are a lot of epithets towards Lviv. The name "Lion City" is the most common.. From time to time there are used such comparisons, names and phrases like "city of lions", "city of sleeping lions", "the Royal city", "pearl of the crown of Europe", "Town-Museum", "the capital of Galicia", "small Paris"...

The rebels are involved in numerous provocative actions, for instance, using Western journalists as a human shield and shelling the OSCE observers on November 27. Petro Poroshenko underlines that all the international monitoring missions, including the OSCE one, confirm that the armed militants are constantly violating the peace deal, using the �...

You may know about the situation in Ukraine. I would like to outline the main points about circumstances in the East of Ukraine and Crimea on November 5th – 12th. A violent change is being observed in the Eastern Ukraine after the November 2nd “elections in local governments” in Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. DPR and LPR are self-proclaimed republics on the territory of Ukraine. But there is no country in the world which declared that. Large scal...

I believe everyone has a great potential inside and is capable of succeeding. But there can be people who need a stimulation or someone’s encouragement. And it is not a sin to be like this! Good Will Hunting is an 1997 American drama film directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Minnie Driver, and Stellan Skarsgård. The film received universal critical acclaim and was a financial success. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including...
