Vida Péter: Bakancslista a Kárpát-medencében

Whether you are younger or older, there are places, buildings, natural wonders that you would like to see, but never have enough time. We made a "bucket list" in the Carpathian Basin. Here are the sights you shouldn't miss. This time we narrowed down the introduction of Hungarian destinations to only the most important ones, instead focusing on the more distant points of interest in the basin. We hope that our album will encourage many people to travel.

Stefano Mancuso - Alessandra Viola: Brilliant Green: The Surprising History and Science of Plant Intelligence 

Are plants intelligent? Can they solve problems, communicate, and navigate their surroundings? Or are they passive, incapable of independent action or social behavior? Philosophers and scientists have pondered these questions since ancient Greece, most often concluding that plants are unthinking and inert: they are too silent, too sedentary -- just too different from us. Yet discoveries over the past fifty years have challenged these ideas, shedding new light on the extraordinary capabilities and complex interior lives of plants.
In Brilliant Green, Stefano Mancuso, a leading scientist and founder of the field of plant neurobiology, presents a new paradigm in our understanding of the vegetal world. Combining a historical perspective with the latest in plant science, Mancuso argues that, due to cultural prejudices and human arrogance, we continue to underestimate plants. In fact, they process information, sleep, remember, and signal to one another -- showing that, far from passive machines, plants are intelligent and aware. Through a survey of plant capabilities from sight and touch to communication, Mancuso challenges our notion of intelligence, presenting a vision of plant life that is more sophisticated than most imagine.
Plants have much to teach us, from network building to innovations in robotics and man-made materials -- but only if we understand more about how they live. Part botany lesson, part manifesto, Brilliant Green is an engaging and passionate examination of the inner workings of the plant kingdom.


Dr. Csernus Imre: Én és te

"People often call opportunism compromise, just as they call security happiness. Both are equally self-deception."

The live lectures of Dr. Imre Csernus are always popular, but when the topic is relationships, the room is always packed. Why does finding and keeping love and happiness cause us problems so often? The well-known psychiatrist seeks answers to this question in his new book.

The short answer is given by the title of the book. It is no coincidence that instead of the polite order "you and me", it’s me and you, since those who cannot accept and love themselves cannot really love anyone else either. Based on this, the author goes through the stages of relationships that are familiar to all of us, from the awakening of attraction to the so often occurring breakup, from taking the first steps in adolescence to adult love, from the founding of a family to the arrival of children to divorce and starting over, or if possible, to the successful rescue of the relationship.

Why is safety not the same as happiness? Why is codependency so common? How are relationship patterns inherited? Why is it a problem in a relationship if two vampires suck each other's blood? Why should we not be afraid of failure? What warning signs forecast that the death of love may soon occur? Why is it not a good idea to stay together because of the children? Why is it important to set boundaries, keep the promised consequences, and take responsibility for our words and actions? Why is it important to learn that the truth is halfway? And as parents, why should we teach our children all this in time? By the time we get to the end of the book, we will get answers to these questions that fundamentally define our lives, and we can also learn how to fill the glass of our relationship day after day.

Dr. Imre Csernus always emphasizes that he only makes suggestions. That's why Me and you will not be mandatory, but a recommended reading for everyone who wants true love and long-lasting happiness. "If I approach my life with devotion, then I approach the other person, adulthood and sexuality with devotion. This devotion, all-in adult approach is the master key that opens all locks."
