Putin’s Russia and how do young people react to it

My project is about the development of modern Russia and the relationship with its future generation. The project firstly exhibits the short history of Russia from the beginning of Putin’s first presidency until recent events and then analyzes a survey done by me which summarizes opinions of Russian youth on these topics. This project places main Russian events as well as reasons for them in order. It presents motivations of political leaders and events in a clear way. It helps people not understanding Russian politics fully to imagine the idea of them as well. For people who already know Russia’s politics it introduces new information which has not been known before about Russia’s young generation. (P.S. there is more further research going on in the project right now).

Analysis of glyphosate residues in honey

This study is about the analysis of glyphosate residues in honey. We tested 8 different honey samples with the ELISA technique. From 8 samples, 12.5% of the honey samples were positive, 12.5% were not conclusive and 75% were clearly negative, since the average concentration was under the limit of detection. The one positive sample was near the MRL (Maximal Residue Level) in Europe. The positive sample is known to come from an organic beekeeper. The question arises how and why the honey contains glyphosate residues.
