The Atypical Russian Mystery of Mr. Pope's Baby


a story by all the students of the 4th year of CSE



Once upon a time.....

A man who lived in Russia drank vodka very often and who was bald is the protagonist of our atypical Russian story. 

While he was playing counterstrike at home, he discovered the rotten body of Mr. Pope, an old friend of him. Our man visited the Red Square in Moscow that evening and there, he said to everybody that he had found the body of his poor friend Mr. Pope.

So, he traveled to Paris after Moscow to look for Mr. Pope beloved girlfriend, but he almost died there because there was a terrorist attack in which he survived. He went there to tell Mr. Pope's girlfreind that he had died. His girlfriend cried a lot because she thought she wouldn't see him again and because she was pregnant and poor. 

In this moment our main character knew that the spirit of Mr. Pope was that of an old black man. Suddenly, Mr. Pope's body was reborn. Mr. Pope, as he woke up, went to the main square to eat an ice cream. After he ate the ice cream, he went to say to his girlfriend that he's alive again but reborn in the body of an old black man. But his girlfriend didn't believe him and she killed him. And while he was being killed with an opal knife he whispered "how aesthetic".

After two months, Mr. Pope's girlfriend won the lottery and the baby was born. The name of the baby was Harambe. When she won the lottery she thought that she wanted to live in America. 

Suddenly, a spirit inside the baby possessed by Austin, a friend of both Mr. Pope and our protagonist, left the baby's body. Before leaving the body, he had revived Mr. Pope and himself. Finally, our protagonist woke up in a hospital bed in the middle of the third world war and discovered Marina, a friend of Mr. Pope's girlfriend, and Austin are now ruling the world together.



Happy birthday to Austin! All the best!

St. Patrick's Day around the world

St. Patrick's Day around the world


St Patrick’s Day is now celebrated throughout the world, not just in Ireland, with the largest parade taking place in New York City.




MOLLY MALONE








On March 17th, people all over the world will be celebrating St Patrick's Day. I'm not sure Irish people living in Ireland will appreciate their national day being described as an 'American holiday', but apart from that, this video gives a good overview of everybody's favourite green festival. For more St Patrick's Day resources, see below.

Women's Day 2017

The original aim of Women's Day –that is, to achieve full gender equality for all women in the world– has still not been realised. A gender pay gap persists across the globe and women are still not present in equal numbers in business or politics. Women’s education, health and violence towards women is still worse than that of men.

The gender gap is still wide open. So the fight can't be over.
Let's come together to force the world to recognise these inequalities – while also celebrating the achievements of women who have overcome these barriers.

The future

Can you imagine a future where there’s no need at all to even have an International Women’s Day? Where there is total equality for men and women? Hmmm … something to think about but perhaps in your lifetime this could happen!?
