ALL PEOPLE SMILE IN THE SAME LANGUAGE

More than a thousand participants used English as their main working language; and everybody spoke the same language in more ways than one. In between and after the sessions one could see spontaneously formed groups of researchers animatedly discussing various problems in their own mother-tongue(s) too. I listened to a group of young scientists from Germany, Czech Republic, the USA, the UK and France talk about their post-doctorate courses in France. Their concerns and hopes are similar to anybody else’s.

Shakespeare the Eternal Magician

SHAKESPEARE, THE ETERNAL MAGICIAN.
Nina MK, Ph.D.
As chance would have it, “Shakespeare, le Magicien Eternel” was the phrase which greeted me on a French magazine cover in Paris. The words do not require a translation: Shakespeare indeed is the eternal magician. The church book in Stratford-on-Avon tells us that he was born on April 23, 1564, and died on the same day in 1616. His memory is carefully preserved in his birth place, and his writings are revered around the world.
