Noor has told us more about Graz. The city’s architecture is dominated largely by the struggle of the Reformists and the Habsburgs’ Counter Reformation. Protestant buildings like the Landhaus and many different palais encounter buildings like the old University, the Mausoleum and the Minoritenkirche erected to represent Catholic believes.
The most important building of baroque architecture in Graz is without doubt the Eggenberg castle. A very significant city mark is the romantic Uhrturm, a tower still using the original clockwork from 1712 and a popular first kiss area for many inhabitants. The fortress on the Schlossberg determines the townscape of the city and contains the largest collection of early modern weaponry and suits of armour throughout Europe. In the 19th century Graz grew into a large city and many representative buildings like the Karl-Franzens-University, the city hall and the opera house were erected.

Did you think before that you can use the free renewable energy resources like solar and wind energy to create electricity for your home? The solution becomes more easier than before, with the fact that the whole world is going to use clean renewable energies like solar and wind to power almost everything in the coming days. You can now build renewable energy power system.
The 21st century promises to hold many new possibilities and briefly into the new millennium, we’ve already hit a few obstacles. The “conflict” in Afghanistan & Iraq, our current economic “meltdown”, and the ever rising energy crisis are the big ones on everybody’s mind. But while we may not be able to do much to influence the first two problems, we can do much to combat our energy needs.
Many people are still wondering if renewable energy is the right way to go, considering the spike recently in electricity bills. As demand for energy resources increase in our world of ever decreasing supplies, it has become important that we learn how to harness renewable sources for making energy.

Compared to other countries British universities offer value for money. This is due to the time it takes to complete a degree. Typically a degree is spread of very three years rather than four and most masters degree programs can be completed in one year. This makes UK universities very cost effective compared to other countries. The UK also has many financial aid and scholarships with make it possible for many foreign students to enter these educational institutes.
Another incentive of studying in the UK is the UK health care system. Foreign students studying in England, Northern Island, Scotland and Wales on a full time course are entitled to free medical treatment.
If you are a student wishing to immigrate to the UK then you could enter the country on a student visa and once your course is completed you could switch to another immigration service like a work permit visa without having to leave the UK. You will need certain circumstances to be eligible for student visa. You either need to prove you have been accepted on a course at a public funding institution like a university, a private education institute or an independent fee-paying school. Also you have to prove you intent to attend a recognized full time degree course, a weekday course with at least 15 hours of daytime study a week or a full time course at an independent fee paying school. All the costs of your accommodation and the fees of you course will have to be paid for by yourself and not by any public funds.

Japan and Japanese society have shown a great enthusiasms for robotics and they are advancing very fast in this field. This is one of the reason that Sadaf chose Japan for her studying in robotics field.
She is studying building assembly line robots, assembly line robots are used in industrial manufacturing and packaging process. Eventually the deeper long term financial resources and strong domestic market enjoyed by the Japanese companies prevailed, their robots spread all over the globe.
If robots are to work effectively in homes and other non-industrial environments, the way they are instructed to perform their jobs, and especially how they will be told to stop will be of critical importance. The people who interact with them may have little or no training in robotics, and so any interface will need to be extremely intuitive. Science fiction authors also typically assume that robots will eventually be capable of communicating with humans through speech, gestures, and facial expressions, rather than a command-line interface. Although speech would be the most natural way for the human to communicate.
Sadaf (in middle tall, wearing brown shirt) sent this photo from Tokyo, Japan, Sadaf is a student of Robotics in one of the Japan’s top universities. Sadaf is learning engineering and science of robots, their design and application in everyday life.
The sender of this article is Noor. Graz was sole Cultural Capital of Europe for 2003. Graz has a long tradition as a student city: its six universities have more than 44,000 students. Noor loves the sunshine in Graz. Due to its position south east of the Alps, Graz is shielded from the prevailing westerly winds that bring weather fronts in from the North Atlantic to north western and central Europe. Due to this factor the weather in Graz is Mediterranean influenced. Graz therefore has more hours of sunshine per year than Vienna or Salzburg and also less wind or rain.
Noor is studying in University of Graz, second largest and second oldest university in Austria. Noor thinks it an honor that she get enrolled here. University has 9 Nobel prize laureates. Karl-Franzens-University, also referred to as the University of Graz, is the city’s oldest university, founded in 1585 by Archduke Charles II of Austria. For most of its existence it was controlled by the Catholic Church.
Noor loves visiting old town Graz. The old town was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999 due to the harmonious co-existence of typical buildings from different epochs and in different architectural styles. Being situated in a cultural borderland between Central Europe, Italy and the Balkan States, Graz absorbed various influences from the neighbouring regions and thus received its exceptional townscape. Today the old town consists of over 1000 buildings, their age ranging from Gothic to Contemporary.
