The one book that brought me to the path of environmentalism was Red Mars. The science fiction, along with Green Mars and Blue Mars as its sequels affected my worldview so profoundly. The Martian Trilogy as the three books are collectively known is more than an entertaining science fiction. It touches on various issues, ranging […]

The latest installment to Star Wars saga is explosive. I saw it in the morning at a local cinema and I very much love it. It is better in many aspects when compared to the first two prequels. Revenge of the Sith is involving because instead of depending solely on choreography of lightsaber duel and […]

Memorable moments? Episode IV: the dogfight in the trench of the first Death Star. Episode V: “Luke, I am your father”. Episode VI: Ewoks kicking stormtroopers’ ass with Leia in interesting custom. Episode I: Darth Maul vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn. Another one is probably the pod race. And maybe Padme Amidala (Keira Knightley […]

The father somewhat struggled to describe the elephant”. Humlind face was expressionless, as expressionless as […]

If everything in this world rested on me, I will make sure that the world will be a greener place to live in. All of my policies will be based on three of the Green Four Pillars – okologisch (ecological sound), sozial (social stability) and basisdemokratisch (democratic society).
