    Mladiinfo only operates as a youth portal that publishes information about various studying possibilities. We cannot help you in the application process; you should contact the university directly.



  3. Hi Maureen and Paul -Just wanted to add to the cosetrnavion that two of the above mentioned ideas have been instituted before in the history of our Forum. Augustana and the Sioux Falls Argus Leader did an essay contest What Peace Means to Me in the SIoux Falls Schools many years ago (when we hosted in the early 90 s). The winner received a US Savings Bond and was presented at the Forum. In addition, Augustana received a $50,000 grant from the US Inst of Peace to help support the Forum that year. The money was used to give legs to our discussions booklets with conference proceedings as well as information about the laureates and speakers were placed in every high school in South Dakota. Just some FYI as you continue your cosetrnavions ..hope things are still going well! Brad

  4. We were sitting in the pennamert seats, on the fourth row … and yeah, kind of on the opposite side from where you were. We thought about going down onto the stadium ‘floor’ and grabbing some seats there instead, but decided against it … we wouldn’t hear any better down there 🙂 and obviously we wouldnt be able to get close enough to see much more of the stage than we already did – we’d still be mainly watching the screen – in fact we might see a little less down there since we’d have a bunch of heads in front of us. 🙂 And as you know Ane9a is pretty tall so she likes bleacher seats better than floor seats; then she knows she isn’t blocking anyone’s view. (Sorry, operafantomet!! ;-)Yup, they had tote bags! And I got me one! When did you buy stuff? Maybe they were out by then and had taken the bag down off the wall? I bought my stuff during the interval, they seemed to have a pile of them then.Yeah, both Aftenposten and Dagsavisen wrote it up. But I totally understand the others boycotting it. I mean, ‘now, in order to be allowed to do your job of providing us with free publicity, you must sign this contract in accordance with the laws of the State of California’ – WTF?? Maybe they can pull off that shit back where they come from but I’m happy to know it’s not flying here.I’m hoping it’s management and not Cohen who’s behind that unfortunate decision.
