    A Bear and a Bull

    Once upon a time, in a land of endless meadows and beautiful woods, peacefully lived a bear and a bull. But they were not just two ordinary animals who would have wanted to live a typical life like others of their kind, eating grass and hunting prey every other day to survive. Ever since they were offsprings, they have been…

    Bittersweet Chocolate Business

    Chocolate is one of the most popular food products in the world (and also one of the best, if you ask me). Some episodes of American Masterchef that I recently watched have taught me that in a gourmet world, this incredibly delicious ingredient is also used in savoury and spicy dishes, not only in desserts as I had imagined.

    Hungry Billionaires

    In primary school, I had an incredible history teacher, whose teaching was not full of dull facts, but amazing stories about the past. What is more, he then showed us, how are consequences of these past events seen even today. Nevertheless, that is the point of history class – not to memorize tons of data about what happened, but to…

    How Much Risk are You Willing to Take?

    Nobody can avoid risks during a lifetime. In fact, everything we do day to day involves risk. When we go for a walk or running, we are at risk of twisting our ankle for example. When we invest our money, we accept a risk that a value of an asset can drop, and we might not profit from it. Ironically,…
