    Demetra Duleva: I come back to leave again

    Leaving Bulgaria is not just a desire to get out of poverty and earn more money. It is something much more fundamental, which is obviously so significant that most of the emigrants are willing to pay a very high price to have it, Demetra Duleva says in an interview to EUROPOST.

  • Maestro Nayden Todorov: Music is my destiny

    Maestro Nayden Todorov: Music is my destiny

    Live concerts and concerts streamed online are two completely different experiences that have different impact on people. They should not be compared and contrasted. Let us also not forget that we are living in the 21st century. The exact opposite may actually happen - concerts streamed online may help us reach audiences who, without necessarily having a good idea of it, have until now thought of our art form as obsolete, says Maestro Nayden Todorov in an interview to EUROPOST.

    Gilles de Kerchove: Speedy access to e-evidence is crucial to fighting terrorism and organised crime

    If we don't give our law enforcement and judicial authorities appropriate tools at hand to fight terrorism and serious and organised crime that is being carried out online, they go dark and there is impunity for crimes. They risk to be blind while many of the crimes are either planned or conducted online, says EU Counter-Terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove in an interview to Europost.

  • To attack Delyan Peevski: Give them one report and they'll be off and running

    To attack Delyan Peevski: Give them one report and they'll be off and running

    There is this sweet gig you can get - writing long, boring reports for years and getting paid for it. And if you are new at this position, you just plagiarise the work of those who did it before you. But there is an even sweeter gig - getting creative with relating and adding to these reports. We can safely say that the Capital circle media outlets are the kings of this. Especially the website Mediapool.

  • Close the churches! Right now!

    Close the churches! Right now!

    This is unbelievable - the Bulgarian Orthodox Church is still planning on holding Easter services. Never mind the pandemic, the declared state of emergency, the massive health risk to both the congregation and the priests.

  • Ten shameful minutes

    Ten shameful minutes

    Do you know how many things can happen in 10 minutes? One of my favourite contemporary writers, Elif Shafak, would have you know that this is how long it takes for a teakettle of water to boil, and that you could also fit an entire life, several even, into such a small window of time. She shares this in her new book 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World. But writers have the privilege of letting their imagination run free, even when telling true stories. In real life, a lot of different events, mostly brief ones, happen in 10 minutes. Important things usually take longer.

    DJ Rebūke: Let people have fun

    Don't follow trends and imitate other artists or sounds that are popular. Someone said to me a couple of years ago, if you are trying to copy today’s sound, you’re a year too late, says DJ Rebūke in an interview to Europost.

    H.E. Ursula Hoefter Zuccoli: Our mission is to help those most in need

    The efforts of the international organisations have to be focused on the prevention of migration and providing decent life in the countries of Africa and the Middle East. In my opinion, this is the best and surest solution to the problem, albeit in a long-term perspective, says H.E. Ursula Hoefter Zuccoli, Ambassador of the Sovereign Order of Malta to Bulgaria, in an interview to Europost.

  • Translation is a daunting vocation

    Translation is a daunting vocation

    The poetical nature of first love and a beginner's translation lies in what I would call an optical illusion. Gradually, the amorous come to realise their feebleness and the futility of the quest for a perfect love, while the translator comes to grips with the mirage known as the “perfect translation” dream, says Petko Hinov in an interview to Europost.
