Laura Unuk is anything but an ordinary 22-year-old. In addition to studying biochemistry, a large part of her time is taken up by her great love – chess. Navigating between the obligations of studying and all the chess competitions is certainly not easy, but it is much easier to manage since Laura has two assistants with her - a smartphone Huawei P50 Pro and a smart watch Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro.
It wasn't just the racist remarks that resonated... we learned a lot more in the interview!
We talked to renowned personal trainer Daniel Jelovic about the misconceptions related to exercise. This January always deals with those of us who believe in exercise myths, and of course with a bunch of those who set unrealistic New Year's resolutions. We've worked with him to pick out some of the most common misconceptions most of his clients have when they decide to start training.
After more than 25 years, the German rave giants Scooter are coming to Slovenia for the first time as a live band and in a full stage production, with which they shake large world arenas, stadiums and festivals. Charismatic frontman HP Baxxter and the guys from the band Scooter have sold over 30 million albums and singles, received more than 80 platinum and gold records, and entered the annals with classics such as Hyper Hyper, How Much Is The Fish, Maria, Friends , Fire, Move Your Ass, I'm Raving, Fuck The Millenium, Nessaja, Harder Faster Scooter, Call Me Manana... We spoke with them briefly about their career, which elevated them from commercial to icons.
The kitchen knife was first used by Homo habilis a million years before fire was known as a tool for preparing and sharing food with others. With its primary utility, such a knife still defines the essence of modern man, but it has changed a lot from its stone beginnings to today. It is the prosciutto knife that embodies this ancient essence of a rudimentary knife, when a dried piece of meat is cut and shared with friends.
To cap off the long hot summer, Tobačna will welcome the third Slovenia Urban Culture Festival. The framework of the Saturday gathering will be Sladica with guests, which will prepare the ground for the Norwegian hit maker Röyksopp (So Easy, Eple, Poor Leno, Remind Me, Percent, What Else Is There, Only This Moment, Sordid Affair...). On Friday, the abandoned factory yard will host a "bloc party" with the Pure Oldies Goldies team from Ljubljana's Cvetličarna, and the always excellent David Morales will provide the authentic beat of New York house parties. After moving to Bologna, the Grammy-winner started a new label, Diridim, and entered the summer with the song Away From The Storm, new music is coming with Janice Robinson (There Must Be Love, I Make You Gaga), and apparently there will be no shortage of new music, as we intercepted him while working in a New York studio.

We had a short conversation with Primož, and we admit that he really impressed us with his thinking.
Art historian and cosmopolitan dr. Barbara Jaki began her journey at the National Gallery thirty years ago as a curator, and today she is in her third term at the helm. We talked with her about the 100th anniversary of the National Gallery, which coincides with the European Year of Cultural Heritage, about her collection, about the "star moments" of the gallery and about the Parisian romance, which, among other things, brought the director of the National Gallery the French state decoration of the Legion of Honor.
Zlatko is easily a synonym for positivism, for what is good in people. He is tongue-in-cheek, saying what everyone could or should, if only they "had balls". And that's also why I'm so excited about it. In ten years, he grew up, maybe lost some of his anger, but in his pieces he remained juicy, passionate, lucid and, most importantly, he kept his message.
Only one more day separates us from the start of the long-awaited new season of the Game of Thrones series, which we will also be able to watch on HBO Slovenia this year. To further warm you up for the new season, we've got an exclusive interview with series star Liam Cunningham, who portrays ex-smuggler Ser Davos Seaworth.
I met Booka Shade, a cute duo synonymous with tech house and techno at the turn of the millennium, right before their performance at the InMusic festival in Zagreb. Although they claim that they are not "Berlin", I personally find it difficult to place them anywhere else than in the bubbling cauldron of the ever-faster growing and popular Berlin techno scene, where only the best are born. I talked to them about the new Galvany Street album, on which they deviated from their classic sound, but they did not impress me any less.
