Hey guys! Today I’m writing my first blog entry and it’s about heli-skiing and ice-climbing. I read about it on the internet and must say that it sounds really awesome. Heli-skiing, also called helicopter skiing, is a type of free-riding, which involves a helicopter to access remote areas and slopes of powder snow.
Heli-skiing is actually nothing you would do for family-holidays. It’s more like an adventure trip for adults, because you have to be over the age of 19. You also have to be a good skier in order to get the permission to try heli-skiing.
I was thinking about the major consequences that would happen if everyone tried an experience like heli-skiing. My main point is that everyone can ski on slopes with no experience, but let us say that heli-skiing becomes a cool trend, then these untouched slopes will be as crowded as the normal ones.

I have always loved writing, but only in my notebook where I was the only person allowed to read these texts. Now I have the opportunity to write about a topic, which is important to me, with people who have the same interests as me. They will join and read what I think. Ops, what we think.

Life beyond Earth. Does it exist?
I’m pretty sure you have wondered about it before, whether we are alone in this universe or not. Or, if there are beings that live among us in this endless dark space our world floats in.
Some scientists, for example, the astronomer Frank Drake, say ,,that we are surrounded by at least thousands of civilizations that inhabit this galaxy as well’’, while others believe that we are alone in this galaxy perhaps even in the entire universe. I believe that since the universe is infinite there could be an infinite number of inhabitable planets as well. Continue reading Life beyond Earth. Does it exist?
Have you ever thought about who produces your clothes?
We all know that most of the clothes we buy are produced in foreign countries. But why do companies produce their clothes in other countries? Firstly, the laws are different in foreign countries. For example, they have lower minimum wages, more working hours are possible and child labor is accepted. Even though the global brands are making millions in profit, the workers are not paid a living wage. In Asia, over 15 million people are employed in the garment industry. The majority of the world`s garment workers are women. Continue reading Do you know where your clothes come from?
One or two months ago, a friend of mine told me that she had decided to stop eating sugar. Not because she was worried about her weight, but because sugar can cause a lot of diseases. I did a bit of research on the internet, and I found a number of disconcerting facts about sugar. I also found out that in 1997, every person in Austria consumed 40,4 kilograms of sugar per year.
Sugar can, of course, cause tooth decay, but doctors are also discussing whether sugar may increase the risk of cancer. Continue reading Sugar-is it only sweet?
