Kirovohrad State Pedagogical University welcomes foreign students!

Category: Information

An informal meeting with foreign students from Donetsk Medical University was held on the 26th of May, 2017. Our Faculty of Foreign Languages had an opportunity to get acquainted with Rahim (Dubai, the UAE), Mahmud (Paris, France) and Menatella (Cairo, Egypt) who had come to Kropyvnytskyi in order to study at the Dentist Faculty, that made them at first groupmates and then friends.

The young people talked about themselves, their past and their plans about future. As for Mahmud, who is an active and talkative person, he is an Algebra and Analysis teacher. His explanation to become a dentist was cleared up because he cannot imagine his life without studying and he wants to be the boss of his own. Also, Mahmud is a polyglot, who knows all the Arabic languages, French, Russian, and Spanish. Despite Mahmud intends to stay in Kropyvnytskyi for all his life, Menatella – the only girl from their group – wants to come back home to work as a dentist. Rahim gladly told us about his family and traditions, for example, the wedding ones, that exist in his country.

Our guests shared their experience of living in Kropyvnytskyi. Despite they had visited a lot of Ukrainian cities, they preferred to stay in our Small Paris because of its beauty, convenience and, of course, peace. But under these themes, the difficult issues about the education for foreigners in our city were discussed. We talked about problems with the dwelling and how the Ukrainians trust aliens, which is the disputed question. Also we talked over about the teaching in Donetsk Medical University. The students complained the teachers did not know English and showed everything with slides and gestures. All these issues complicate the studying of foreigners and authorities have not solved these points yet.

But we hope all foreigners will feel in Kropyvnytskyi as at their home, enjoying studying, student life and gathering memories about Ukraine that they could share with their families and friends with a smile on their faces!

“The proper function of man is to live, not to exist” 

Jack London



              In Ukraine people think that after getting the age of 60 your life becomes dull, you are limited of opportunities and time. But in the USA people think differently: you have a lot of time to discover new countries and cultures, you enrich your experience by meeting new people, mastering new languages and discovering new landscapes.

              Donald Best, a Steering Committee Member of the ESU USA, visited the students of KSPU on 25 May, 2017 to share his life experience. He is a real evidence that life can be interesting and colourful at any period of your life. Mr. Best has an impressive number of visited countries: 40! That is why he is able to compare life conditions of many countries and all the measures are based on his own experience.

              The students of the Faculty of Foreign Languages asked him a lot of interesting questions, the conversation was active and productive. Donald Best said that if he had an opportunity to choose his nationality he would prefer to be an Englishman. He explained his choice because of the safety and beauty of Great Britain. Donald is also fond of art: he cannot imagine his life without theatres, museums, art galleries.

              He gave some advice to the young generation:

              First of all, print photos, it will be much easier to use and recall some remembrances when you are in your “great age”;

              The second recommendation is making notes: try to write down what you are feeling at the very moment.

              40 countries is not a limited number for Donald Best, he has a dream to visit Egypt, China and other countries, which attract his attention by their wonders and peculiarities.

              All the students had a great opportunity to communicate with with the person who can speak up at various topics, explaining everything you are eager to know.

“Oncology is a long-lasting problem of the humanity. The Neanderthals were the first ones to suffer from different forms of cancer and the earliest attempts to describe this disease were made in Ancient Egypt 1600 BC”- explains Serhii Odarchenko, the PhD in Medical Science and the Chief Doctor of the Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapy, at the official website of the Center. As cancer continues to become the concern point of a growing number of Ukrainians,Serhii Odarchenko gladly agreed to conduct the meeting withthe students of KSPU that took place on 24May, 2017 at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, to tell more about the Center working procedure and share the recommendations that can help never to experience the misfortune of being a cancer patient.

The Ukrainian Center of TomoTherapy, that was founded in 2015,is a unique medical institution in Ukraine where TomoTherapy, the most accurate method of treating cancer, is used. In the Center you can find all the necessary modern equipment for reliable diagnostics of oncological diseases. The greatest specialists from all over Ukraine gathered here to treat as many people as possible by diagnosing tumors of the smallest sizes, irregular shapes and locations.

According to the fact that the Center is situated in Kropyvnytskyi, not all patients have the opportunity to visit it because of different reasons, as, for example, the health conditions, the Ukrainian Center of Tomotherapy has opened the consultation rooms to provide the informational support throughout Ukraine.

Serhii Odarchenko explained that among the most frequent reasons of cancer there are particular viruses, radiation, chemicals, heredity, hormones and diet. The risk factors that are likely to increase the number of cancer cells in our body are obesity, uncontrollable consumption of alcohol and tobacco, sun exposure, infections and pollution. That is why to stay outside this risk circle, we are better to follow some recommendations that will not only protect us from cancer, but also will help to join the squad of “healthy life-stylers”.

  1. Be lean. Obesity is one of the most frequently met cancer’s triggers. That is why taking control of your weight is a crucial point of this issue.
  2. Be physically active. Even the simplest morning exercises will help you always to stay energetic and healthy.
  3. Avoid sugary drinks. Sugar is known as the white death, that is why you should try all your best to reduce its consumption.
  4. Eat various vegetables and fruits. They are the greatest source of vitamins our body desperately needs.
  5. Limit consumption of red meat. It can become the reason of stomach cancer.
  6. Avoid alcohol. 2 glasses of wine for men and 1 for women will not make harm but the excess of this dosage is not useful.
  7. Avoid salty food. Salt clogs the ducts and fluid cannot leave the body. As the result, edemas develop.
  8. Try not to use supplements. The majority “advantages” of their usage are mythical.

As you can see a great number of these tips concern your eating habits, so try to analyze your diet properly and if you find that some of your food excesses do not look like it is desirable - change them! Remember: your health is in your hands.

But if you unfortunately happen to become a cancer patient, such institutions as the Ukrainian Center of Tomotherapy will not leave you to fight with this disease alone because as the motto of the Center tells: “Cancer is only a stage of life. We CAN overcome it together”.


Interesting fact:

The origin of the word cancer is credited to Hippocrates, who is considered the “Father of Medicine.” Hippocrates used the terms carcinos and carcinoma to describe tumors. In Greek, these words refer to a crab, most likely applied to the disease because the finger-like spreading projections from a cancer called to mind the shape of a crab.
