JINGLE BELLS JINGLE BELLS!

Christmas is getting closer, the weather is defenetely getting colder and the first snow flakes have fallen. Best thing to do is to keep warm with a nice hot tea or hot chocolate by your side, catch up on readings annnnnd maybe start studying a bit ;) If you're thinking about christmas gifts a nice idea could be to make some homemade ones (check this list out).   We hope you enjoy this month's newsletter and have a nice winter break!

ASSG Bingo Night
With the festivities season drawing near, the ASSG makes sure to give us another thing to look forward to and distract us from meticulously counting the days. For the "experienced” in the field, if there can be any, is Bingo night time, while the not so enlightened amongst us will have the opportunity to check it out themselves on 12th of December. With fun being guaranteed and the high probability of winning some rather substantial rewards, all you have to do is to save the date and bring your lighter before-Christmas self to Centro Arpino. Stay tuned and see you all in there!

REPRESENTATIVES CORNER
The hardworking group behind the newsletter has been able to give us, your student representatives Davide Fede and Philip Linander, the opportunity to share with all of you what we are up to. Anyone interested will be able to see what was talked about in the latest Faculty Meeting here. It’s our hope that you will come and talk to us as soon as you feel like expressing your critique. Wether there is something you appreciate or something you strongly disagree with in the way we are keeping the discussion between students and professors, don’t hesitate to give us your opinion!

UNCONFERENCE
Not another classical conference to sit through... but an UNCONFERENCE! Join it on Tuesday (5th Dec | 5 pm | Tavole) and talk about what you care for, what you haven’t understood, what you ask yourself and what you dream with fellow students and professors. Check out how an unconference works here.

BOOK & MOVIE CORNER

More than honey
 “If bees were to disappear from the globe, mankind would only have 4 years left to live.”
These drastic words, supposedly spoken by Albert Einstein, sum up the problems that the global extinction of bees would bring upon us.
More Than Honey is a Swiss documentary, which explores the possible causes of the mass vanishing of bees happening right now. The movie shows the complex of problems beekeepers from different regions of the world are facing and the impact it has, not only on the production of honey. Director Markus Imhoof accomplishes this by using incredible close up footage of bee colonies and by explaining it in a scientific, yet intriguing way.

The DVD will be available at UniSG library from December 19
