Having become inevitable in our lives, new technologies seem to be making their way into our cities in recent years. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cameras are being integrated into our major cities to improve the lives of citizens and simplify the work of public services. This is called Smart-City. Cities that integrate Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as well as numerous connected intelligent systems (Internet of Things) for practical purposes.

These Smart-Cities have also become essential in the eyes of international organizations such as the European Union, which considers it necessary in its new development plan for 2020 (European Commission, 2019). A plan that aims to integrate smart city technologies in more than 300 European metropolises (Taylor, 2018). …

In 16 days — on the 20th of January 2021 — Joe Biden will take office as the 46th president of the United States. As a result of November’s USA presidential election, he won with 51.4% of the general votes and 56.9% of the electoral votes. Such developments — winning by a hair — in presidential’s or Prime Minister’s elections are more and more often. Taiwan’s president, Tsai Ing-wen, was elected with 57%; Luis Arce became Bolivia’s president with 55.1%.

We rarely observe clear results, and when we do — Russia, Vladimir Puttin or North-Korea, Kim Jong-un — fraud is suspected. Some might say that this depaints more divided populations, a not-so-good thing when unity is needed to solve dozens of arising global problems.

I have been a bar addict for years and a bartender for a couple of months. And my personal way of getting a drink in bars changed a lot in the last few months. That’s why I’ve decided to write a small guide for customers, describing the three pillars of ordering drinks in bars. …

Bartending was the first summer job I ever wanted to do. It seemed fun, and — being a bit shy — it appeared to me to be an excellent way to meet people.

But despite my enthusiasm for the job, finding a bar ready to hire me during the summer — the only part of the year where I was fully available — was quite the challenge. I had no experience, lived in a small town an hour by train from the city — which makes things complicated when you finish your job at 2 am — and soon realized that I did not match the profile patrons are looking for during summer. …
