“Will China overtake the US in the future as a hegemony?” was investigating Varnavas in his master thesis during his Masters in International Political Economy at the King’s College in London. He was so passionate about his research that in 2018 he decided to develop a board game out of it. He called it: Hegemony.Continue reading “Gaming in Education: Hegemonic Project.”

(54) Research on MUSIC: microsonic.
I will probably repeat this many times, but one of the challenges at Researchista is to keep my excitement down. Since I started this blog and our Facebook page, I met so many interesting people and the things we discuss are sometimes simply mind-blowing (bam) and this is one of these cases… So, from the left to the rightContinue reading “(54) Research on MUSIC: microsonic.”
(53) Research on MUSIC: Research with music.
This post is dedicated to all supermen and superwomen out there that manage to combine 2 passions, at which they are both good at, in their everyday life. And this my friend, is a setar. Please welcome my multi-talented friend, Nasser Davarzani! Music helps me to focus better. Sometimes when I don’t have motivation forContinue reading “(53) Research on MUSIC: Research with music.”
(51) Research on MUSIC: an intro.
I remember my dad telling me back in the days that during the Soviet Union times, for the cows to be more productive in giving milk, Mozart would be played in the background, while farmers would collect their milk. Maybe this is not the most romantic way to start this post, but if that is true,Continue reading “(51) Research on MUSIC: an intro.”
(38) Research on Food: make-your-own-little-Research.
Every Monday, during a month on Researchista’s Blog you will find a new subject in which we invite one or more Researchers to talk about it. They are called “Special Guests” (because they are special and because they are guests). At the end of every subject (4th week of each month), Researchista is inviting anyone willingContinue reading “(38) Research on Food: make-your-own-little-Research.”
(33) Public speaking and you.
Some time ago I was asked whether I do motivational speeches. I answered that being motivational is the minimum requirement for any speaker. What really matters, however, is how the audience will be better off after I’m gone.
(29) Researchista Public Launch + Board Game launch.
So, I thought to make a Board Game out of my PhD thesis.
(24) Fashion & Research: intro.
Browsing through the Fashion Bible – “VOGUE” just like I would do with a book, I am looking for its introduction. It took me 12 pages of pictures with clothes and accessories to find the compass through a book: the introduction.
(18) Researchista: first 3 months.
Dear Researchista friends, Our group is increasing and maybe is a good idea to summarise what Researchista is about and what have I been up to since the web-site was launched. So, first things first. Researchista is about bringing Research in the mainstream. This is because at the moment, Research is probably not often seen as veryContinue reading “(18) Researchista: first 3 months.”
(7) Knowledge & Happiness III
Writing about happiness this time is like in the song “try sleeping with a broken heart”. It is just few kilometers away from Maastricht that last week, Europe has been shaken up so badly by the explosions that took place and few minor attacks that are revealed in Brussels as I write. Knowing that we are facing this challenging times, does not make us happy, but knowing and choosing to stay calm, kind, cautious and moving on with our lives toward happiness, might help?
