Discusssion: Russian State Exam

The long-awaited discussion from our no-longer-a-schoolboy Danila. Is The Unified State Exam (ЕГЭ) good or evil? Does it reflect the students' real abilities and knowledge or rather offers a range of opportunities to cheat? Is it convenient for students, teachers, and universities? Is there any way for improvement or other options, or are they even worse? Let's discuss!

Discussion: Popular Art

What makes you like a work of art? Is it that the issues it addresses are somehow close to you? Or maybe, the fact that you like the protagonist, or that it reminds you of yourself? Do you like art because it reflects your world or rather because it gives you a different one to dream about? Let us discuss and then create an art work that is going to be popular with a large audience.

Debate: This House Would Limit the Fluent Speakers at Speak Freely

This question has troubled us since the beginning of this club: should it be free in the sence everyone can speak however much he or she wants, or should it be free in the sense everyone gets a chance to speak (and therefore we should limit the best speakers who have no problem expressing themselves)? Finally, we're doing a debate on this one. This is not an organizational meeting nor a brainstorming session though... just a great opportunity to speak. Equal. For everybody, free, and let no one go awat unsatisfied!

On 7 May, in 1895, Popov gave the first public demonstration of radio as a tool before the Russian Physical and Chemical Society in St. Petersburg. On the 50th anniversary of Popov's experiment, this day was officially marked as a Communications Workers' Day.
