Angel’s Crowded Land (Truth)
Romania has the most homeowners in the European Union – more than 95%, but almost half of them are overcrowded, and several generations live on top of each other in the same house. The specialists contacted by Adevărul explain why this phenomenon occurs.
Asked to comment on this paradox, in which we have many owners, but we live in groups, Prof. Dr. Gabriel Pedescu drew attention to the fact that the problem is related to the way the houses are distributed geographically. He added that, in recent years, internal migration began to replace migration to other countries.
The few development poles – Braشوفov, Cluj-Napoca, Craiova, Constana, Ice, Pločeti and Timioara – attract people from the rest of the country who find it easy to work, often with much higher salaries than those in places of departure.
Prosperous cities are suffering more and more due to congestion, rising housing prices and the fact that more and more green space is being sacrificed for construction.
The solution, in the opinion of the university, would be for these areas to develop the infrastructure of urban public transportation, especially railways, which would allow their expansion in terms of population and area, without a decrease in the quality of life.
Sociologist Gillo Dominic sees poverty as playing a fundamental role in this housing equation.
Romania has approximately 4 million people living in extreme material deprivation. And these people, even if they own a home, cannot afford maintenance on their own. Then I share the costs with the kids etc. The problem is the degree of poverty in Romania, which is much higher than in Western countries, which was supported by the fact that we have a house, but we also have to pay the premiums. Which owes us and impoverishes us more.
Clumping is not the only fault of homes in Romania. Between four and five million people live in areas without access to safe drinking water.

Baccalaureate 2027 with one written test from several disciplines. Change is highly criticized by experts: ‘It’s stupid’ (truth)
Students who start the ninth grade in the academic year 2023-2024 will take the Bagrut exam in a new version, if the new laws are approved. Education experts consult them “the truth” They are skeptical about implementing the changes.
High school graduates in the 2027 Show will be the first generation to support the baccalaureate in a new way. Thus, high school students will take a single written test consisting of all subjects in a common core – Romanian language and literature, mathematics, science, history and geography in Romania and Europe, social and human sciences – if arithmetic and mother tongue are taken into account.
An expert in education, Professor Stefan Flaston is at least uninspired by the new type of baccalaureate with one written test. “It is stupid! High school is a pre-professional stage in a young man’s life. That is, here choices are created, a path in life is chosen, some go to medicine, others go to the polytechnic. From the eleventh and twelfth grades, professional jobs are specially chosen And then, why study mathematics for the baccalaureate that teaches philology? The general culture is learned in high school and at most in the first two years of high school. Integrals and derivatives do not enter into the general culture. In the eleventh and twelfth grades, specialization takes place, because for this reason We have profiles: Human, Mathematics Informatics, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences. And I don’t even see how you can focus on so many topics in three hours. Jumping from one to another or how?” commented Ştefan Vlaston.
According to education expert Daniela Vechoyano, at first glance, testing maturity with a single written test may seem easier. “At least for students who are learning Romanian. But if the model for inspiration is the SAT exam or the ACT — standardized tests that are used for college admissions, especially in the United States, it won’t be easy to get a good grade,” Vishoyano asserts. The expert adds that it is very possible for the model to be influenced by the IB: “The baccalaureate can become a valuable piece of paper, with real coverage of the competencies that graduates have mastered.”

July 14. France Day, the new leader of Europe (Ziarul Financiar)
France became the de facto leader of the European Union after Brexit and after German Chancellor Angela Merkel left the political scene.
Also, with an economy more protected from external forces, France has become one of the main growth engines in the European Union in the post-pandemic recovery period. French President Emmanuel Macron has found himself with a heavy responsibility, the only European political leader with international standing. Russia’s war against Ukraine makes its burden even more difficult, with France remaining the bloc’s largest military power after Brexit.
France also plays a major role in the Romanian economy. He is one of the main investors. The French Renault group brought Dacia into its first international motoring scene. Orange (Dialog), brought to Romania by France Telecom in 1997, is one of the mobile pioneers and has become the Romanian market leader. Carrefour built the first hypermarket in Bucharest in 2001.
French companies are installed in a variety of Romanian businesses, from real estate – Nhood, future pioneer – to banks, with Société Générale, DIY, Leroy Merlin and sports, where Decathlon is the leader. Between Nhood, Decathlon and other French companies in need of space, there is a connection: the first transforms the spaces occupied by the shops and headquarters of these companies into life-friendly spaces. It deals, in other words, with the renovation of urban real estate. France is important from another perspective for the Romanian economy: it is among the few countries where Romania exports more than it imports.
