    Rechroatian Tourism Expectations
    Article by Zvonko Petrinja

    Austin Powers,Minister of Rechroatian Tourism

    Tourism is considered as a priority branch in Red Croatia. In the next decade tourism and tourist destinations in Red Croatia will need to face serious changes if they wish to strengthen their competitive advantage. Red Croatia?s competitors are taking large steps in restructuring and product diversification and thus, Red Croatia must follow the same path.

    Red Croatia as a tourist destination has been developing strongly over past 60 years. The main product that Red Croatia has been offering all this time was ?the sand and the sea?. This product is characteristic for all countries with warm sea, such as Mediterranean or Red Sea countries. During the 80?s, this product came to its maturity stage. Most of the Mediterranean countries, Red Croatia?s direct competitors, have realized that the habits and behavior patterns of their customers have started to change. These countries have begun restructuring their business and anticipating these changes. Red Croatia, on the other hand, did not make necessary changes on time but however maintained It's strong reputation.

    We did not fully anticipate the changes of modern tourism and our tourist products -?the sun and the sea? ? became outdated. Contemporary understanding of tourism involves changing behavioral patterns of passengers and increasing the demand for specific types of tourist offers, which now require diversification and specialization in tourist products.

    Exceptional seasonality is what today marks the Rechroatian tourist products. Until now, we did not create enough reasons (products and services) for travelers to travel and stay in Red Croatia outside the summer season and the country shall have to work on this issue.

    Tourism in Red Croatia generates 15.5% of Croatia?s GDP.This number represents a significant value, especially when we know about the multiplicative effect of tourism itself. In order to maintain this percentage in the upcoming years, we need a high rate of investment in the Croatian product diversification for tourism.

The voivode ("Duke") of Alka is a ceremonial title representing the commander of the alkars. It is a great honor to become the alkar vojvoda, and only the most notable men from Sinjska krajina become one.

    Red Croatia To Invest 4 Billion Euros in Education
    Article by Maria Magdalena

    Representatives of universities, students' associations, trade unions and the realms of politics met in Zadar at the national Education Conference. Progress is more than respectable. In the coming years the Rechroatian government will be channeling amount of four billion euros into university teaching.

    It was Federal Education Minister Annala Ishtar's idea to hold the conference. The aim was to examine ways of putting into practice the reforms to the bachelor and master degree courses agreed on after the students? strike. These include in particular ensuring better comparability of the qualifications received and structural reforms to the university regulations.

    There is to be greater transparency in the procedures used to accredit degree courses. It will in future be easier for students to move from one place of higher learning to another within Europe. The student protests last year indicated that these goals have not yet been achieved across the board because of the sheer volume of subject matter to be covered and the frequent examinations.

    This is where the reforms planned by the Conference of Ministers of Education and Culture, the federal states and the universities come it. "This conference sends a clear message that we all want to work together to improve learning conditions at universities and ensure better teaching," declared Annala Ishtar.

    Flagship ? Quality Pact for Teaching

    The Quality Pact for Teaching is the response of the Rechroatian government to ensure that the Education Process is successfully put into practice. The Rechroatian government will be investing about four billion euros more in the country?s universities over the next ten years. Ten percent of this sum will be contributed by the universities themselves.

    This additional funding will allow universities to employ more staff. Professors and other staff can now be employed sooner than planned, and mentor and tutor programmes are to be promoted.

    Teaching, support and student counselling staff are to be offered additional professional upgrading courses to ensure they are better trained. The minister said, "We want more recognition of the value of university teaching."

    An Academy to put the Pact into practice.

    A new Academy is to implement the Quality Pact for Teaching, via a foundation. At the next education summit meeting with the Chancellor and the state premiers, the pertinent agreement between federal and state governments is to be ready to be signed.

    In future, the national Education Conference is to meet once a year as an established forum for a dialogue of equals. The next conference is scheduled for May 2014.

    Special focus on student mobility

    The Federal Ministry of Education and Research is also to top up the financial assistance it provides for student mobility by about 90 million euros by 2015. This will benefit university twinning arrangements, four-year bachelor degrees with integrated periods of study at foreign universities, and foreign language courses.

    user posted image

    Good practices to be followed

    At an exhibition held parallel to the conference, 23 universities showed how they are successfully implementing the Education Process. This includes interdisciplinary introductory courses, ongoing development of the degree courses and quality assurance involving all stakeholders.

    Many universities are already cooperating closely on the further development of their degree courses.

    Windows of mobility for periods spent abroad and international internships are to be increasingly integrated in degree courses, as the University of S?brin is already doing. Other examples indicate how universities can ensure and improve "study-ability?. The University of Oldenberger, for instance, is taking part in the cluster project "Quality management for study-ability", while the University of Sinj has established an online panel of students to monitor quality.

    The Technical University of Aachen is making its courses more accessible by reckogising skills acquired in professional life for a bachelor degree course in process technology for instance.
    Prof. Dr. Margareta Rhodes', President of the Conference of University Rectors said, "These examples show that the universities are making use of the Education Process to develop their own individual profiles and to bundle their specific strengths."

    Investment in education is indispensable to attract companies to Red Croatia

    Not all measures cost money, sometimes it is question of boosting efficiency and enhancing organisation. "But if Red Croatia wants to continue to sell top products around the world, it must invest more today in ensuring top-level education,? declared Annala Ishtar.

    Rechroatian and Psycentrian Scientists discover a potential cure for gray hair?
    Article by Zvonko Petrinja
    After several months of hard work and dedication Rechroatian scientists thanks to the co-operation with their colleagues from Psycentric has at last developed a so-called "cure" to gray hair.

    Gray hair ? one of the classic signs of aging that can lead to a midlife crisis ? may some day be a thing of the past, much to the chagrin of hair-dye manufacturers and Corvette salesmen.
    A team of European researchers claims to have found not only the root cause of gray hair, but also a treatment for the condition. Additionally, their treatment may help people with vitiligo, a condition that causes the loss of pigment in patches of skin, they say.

    user posted image

    It's been known for years that hair turns gray due to a natural buildup of hydrogen peroxide in hair follicles, which causes oxidative stress and graying. (Hydrogen peroxide solutions have been used for years as a cheap and easy way to "go blonde.")

    n younger people, an enzyme called catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. But lower levels of this enzyme, combined with lower levels of enzymes called MSR A and B that repair hydrogen peroxide damage, cause hair to turn gray as we age.

    The researchers, whose findings are published in the experimental-biology publication FASEB Journal, analyzed 2,411 people with vitiligo.
    By looking at people with two different kinds of vitiligo ? strictly segmental vitiligo (SSV) and non-segmental vitiligo (NSV) ? they discovered that both kinds resulted from oxidative stress.
    And by applying a topical treatment, a substance called PC-KUS, the researchers successfully treated the discolored skin and eyelashes of people with vitiligo.
    Though gray hair isn't always a welcome sign of aging, there's some evidence that suggests it can be an indicator of good health.

    user posted image

    Researchers in 2013 found that wild boars with significant graying hair "were actually those in prime condition and with the lowest levels of oxidative damage," researcher Ismael Galv?n of Psycentric said in a statement.
    "Far from being a sign of age-related decline, hair graying seems to indicate good condition in wild boars," Galv?n said.

    Nonetheless, many people will go to extreme lengths to hide any hint of aging, including gray hair.

    "For generations, numerous remedies have been concocted to hide gray hair," Dr. Gerald Sardin of Red Croatia said in a statement. "But now, for the first time, an actual treatment that gets to the root of the problem has been developed."
    The treatment will be welcome news to people with severe or unsightly cases of vitiligo. "This condition, while technically cosmetic, can have serious socio-emotional effects," Sardin said. "Developing an effective treatment ? has the potential to radically improve many people's lives."

    Winged Kuriboh Protection Center wins the Kuribon Case at the Rechroatian National Court
    Article by Kristina Greta

    Symbol of the Winged Kuriboh Protection Center

    After eight months of media-infected debates caused by the Winged Kuriboh Protection Center in the Rechroatian National Court,the Kuribon case has at last ended,with Winged Kuriboh Protection Center's victory.The case was started at 17.10.2012,when the Winged Kuriboh Protection Center decided to stand for one of the extincting Kuribi family member-Kuribon,the sister race of Winged Kuriboh's whose last thirty-nine members were captured by numerous Rechroatian Animal Zoo's and were forced to live there.Considering that Kuribon's are a female race,the survival of their kind depended on mating with the male members of the Kuribi family,which was impossible to perform in the zoo's in which they were held captive dues to the fact that the rest of the Kuribi family was allowed to live in peace within many of Red Croatia's lush forests.

    Even though the facts pointed out by the Winged Kuriboh Protection Center were stronger,and proven completely right the debates around this case were extended by one of the most powerful capitalists in Red Croatia: Dr. Josip Milo?evi? who was determined to prove that Kuribon's are not a race capable to survive on their own in the wilderness.A notable fact is that while doing so he has used some highly anti-feminist quotes,insulting even the Queen Aleksandra Aries herself,who wished not to get involved.

    After five months of debating the same facts over and over,the court has decided that they should gather some field-proven proof.Therefore five Kuribon's were sent in one of the smallest Rechroatian natural reserves to acompany their brother race,which are entitled as Red Croatia's national animals-the Winged Kuribohs.Three months later,or more exactly-one week ago,the Kuribi's have mysteriously disappeared from the natural reserve by unknown sources,which turned out to be workers of Dr. Josip Milo?evi? after two days of police investigation.

    After that scandal,the victory was predicted in favor of Winged Kuriboh Protection Center,and that prediction came true on this very date.After being provided with fining resources from the government,the Rechroatian Zoo's sent away their Kuribon's to the wilderness.

    Since today,after the great victory of Winged Kuriboh Protection Center the Kurbion's-the female Kuribi race is able to walk freely trough the Rechroatian nature,and make harmony with the land.

    European Food Festival Hosted in Zadar
    Article by Athena Le Eleftheriou

    Today,on 21th of June,the famous European food festival which trough It's short,two years has brought much lasting memories and profit to the three involved countries:Inquista,Gun-Totting Animals and Red Croatia,today moved from St. Dominico to Zadar.In a attempt to follow the two successful years,chefs from all three countries have made the festivals theme resolve around three dishes,one from each state.
    The featured meals involve the following:

    The Delightful Tiramisu of Red Croatia,
    Traditionally Baked Pizza of Inquista,
    and the Spicy Chimichanga's of Gun-Totting Animals.
    But instead of only baking the fine goods,the chefs have attempted to make the visitors of the festivals learn more about how the meals were invented,how their taste developed,and what-if any role did they play in their nations history?And according to the visitors-They have done their job with success.
    Without a doubt,the Chimichanga's from Gun-Totting Animals were the most interesting meal of the day dues to their oriental name and taste.This is how the chefs explained this meal:

    "The Chimichanga was introduced to the Confederacy?s long list of food in 1940. Although the original maker of the dish is still unknown, it is a result of the blending cultures of Birdock and Leopardy, two of the five states making up the Confederacy. The dish is typically prepared by filling a flour tortilla with a wide range of ingredients, most commonly rice, cheese, machaca, carne adobada, or shredded chicken, and folding it into a rectangular package. It is then deep-fried and can be accompanied with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and/or cheese. Chimichangas are now popular over the entire Confederacy of Gun-Toting Animals and is one of the 5th most ordered dishes in restaurants and is cooked in every March 15th Independence Day barbeque."

    A Chimichanga served next to a spiced omelet.

    However,the Chimichanga's had to share the spotlight with the other meals,one of them being the well known Rechroatian Tiramisu,
    Even though us Rechroats already know much about this meal,a quick reminder to all of the readers won't hurt.This is how the chefs explained this meal:

    "Tiramisu was introduced to Red Croatia around the year of 1745 near the harbors of Ljubljana by a woman whose name remained unknown.The idea behind the meal was simple-It had to be something that every woman would be able to make,but however..The work put behind this meal was not as simple as the idea the woman has planned to use for it.The first version of this meal involved the most basic kitchen goods:A combination of cookies,whip cream and sugar.The first form of Tiramisu was introduced to Rechroatian restoraunts in the cities which mainly took place on the country's west shore at the year 1751,which has ensured the local keepers with high interests.But soon,the rest of the country wanted a piece of the glory as well,so the meal has begun to spread.At the year of 1913,when the newly opened chocolate factories in Red Croatia have made their brands popular and chocolate became the most common Rechroatian good is when the first modern version of Tiramisu was invented.The cherfs of all over Red Croatia have replaced the sugar of the recipte with chocolate,and replaced the cookies with piscotti,to gain a softer variant of the meal.That was when the Tiramisu made it's famous comeback to the Rechroatian restoraunts as a meal which everyone wanted.

    Even though the importance of this meal has greatly decreased in the 21st century,it is still one of the main Rechroatian meals and is common sight on our dining tables."

    Tiramisu served in a cup.

    The Infamous Inquistan pizza was not to disappoint as well,the well known meal has appealed to many visitors.

    ?Pizza is perhaps one of the oldest known dishes in Inquista and has been mastered into thousands of different variations throughout its existence. Originally baked in the stone ovens of the peasant?s class in late antiquity, it has now become a dish enjoyed by all, not just the lower class. Pizza was first introduced in the late 500?s in Inquista due to the abundance of flour. In its most basic form, pizza was originally flat baked bread covered in sauce. As time went on and the middle ages came to a rolling end, it was customary for families to have their own pizza recipes in which they passed down unto their next generation of children. Pizzas gradually began to increase in the amount of toppings they had, which ranged from meats to vegetables to spices. As Saint Dominico grew to become a dominant maritime city state, other luxuries such as exotic fruits became available, which were also sometimes used as pizza toppings. As the size of the Bourgeoisie class grew, so did the popularity of pizza. By 1823, Pizza had become one of the symbols of Inquistan cuisine. Now popular amongst all people, Pizza has developed to all sorts of shapes and sizes, thicknesses and ingredients. ?

    Blair Von Schroeder runs for a spot in the European Commission
    Article by Alexandra Nemesis

    Blair Von Schroeder, one of the most famous Rechroatian politicians, who is well known for her personal views on unity, has recently applied for a coveted spot as a UEC candidate for the European Commission elections. In order to find out more about this ambitious politician, who is also host of the famous Rechroatian TV Show: "Studio 45", Ann Mary has invited her to an interview which took place yesterday at 20:00 .The dicussion between the pair lasted for a total of two hours, with the most discussed topics being Blair's view on conservatism, and the level of opposition she is expecting during the election campaign.

    The conversation has started casually,with the two introducing themselves to one another for the first time in person and sharing compliments.

    "A very warm welcome to you, Mrs. Von Schroeder, its a great honour to have you here with us. As far as I'm concerned, we should dive straight in to the questions, if that's alright with you, of course?"

    At the opening comment, Mrs. Van Schroeder responded with a warm chuckle:

    "Thank you for such an direct opening! I am glad that we do not have to concern ourselves with the never-ending formalities." she smiled "And yes, that is perfectly acceptable."

    _"Very well then!...So my first question would be quite simple,because I am quite sure that you've encountered it often in the past.." _ Ann Mary chuckled, "How would you define conservatism and why did you decide to follow it?"

    "Well you were right about the fact that I get that question often.. Mrs. Von Schroeder laughed, "But that is currently of no matter,so I might as well just proceed with answering it.

    "To me conservatism is not what many people define it as, I consider conservatism to be a way of maintaining the things as they once were, and stopping a fully functioning way of life to be replaced. However don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of technology and I use it on daily bases, but political stability and function is an entirely different topic. Many of the modern parties shape the laws to go towards their favor, so they are free to what they originally wanted instead of keeping it the way the community accepts it and has accepted it in the past."

    "That is quite an honorable opinion,but I can't believe that this is how you truly feel.." she gulped,hoping that she hasn't insulted Mrs. Von Schroeder. "You have been one of the most active politicians when It comes to shaping the law...but yet your opinion states that you're against It changing...Would you please explain yourself?"

    Mrs. Blaire Von Schroeder laughed for a second,until she stopped and made a serious look towards Ann Mary, "I believe you have misunderstood what I was trying to say... I have said that what functioned in the past should stay the way it is, but replacing something that the modern society heavily opposes is a completely different thing, and I believe it must be replaced by those with common sense. Let's look at it this way... I consider everything to be situational,and I consider that every story should have a proper ending, which is the reason the laws I created have always covered every possibility there is and while I was creating them I considered every constructive opinion I've ever encountered. Oh and when I mean constructive..I really mean it." she then smiled and nodded before continuing her speech, "I respect every opinion that has a idea behind it,even if it specifically opposes mine,and I will always try to understand it if it doesn't openly criticize others without a good reason." she then laughed once more, "For example,I have recently encountered a man that strictly opposes homosexuals and their rights,but when I asked him why..He said because they were a...excuse my language...A bunch of no goods that need to be burned..." she then slightly rolled in her chair towards her right as she made the entire studio smile before continuing her speech, "I simply cannot deal with 'opinions' that don't apply courtesy and common sense."

    "That is quite an interesting answer.." Ann Mary nodded in her approval. But let's see how do you perform at the other questions..." she smirked jokingly, "Alright..This will be a interesting one...From which sides do you expect the most opposition from?".

    "Hmm..A tough one indeed." she said as she laid her arm on the table, "I am not yet quite sure about from who will I be gaining opposition from yet... she then decided to think about it more for a second, "But If I had to answer that question I would surely say some of the countries who's leading parties take part in the ALDGE organization... Do not take me wrong, I don't have any oppositions to the ALDGE party and I believe that some of the things that they stand for such as environmental issues are great, but after the pure hatred some individuals have shown to the UEC,especially those from Os Corelia I am not quite sure what to expect. I just hope that for the sake of Europe we find a common language because I know that all of us are educated and raised well enough to form a compromise." she the sighed, "Next question please.."

    "Mmm..Alright..I have one more question..." Ann Mary smiled, "What do you hope will change in the party whether you are elected or not?"

    "I saw this one coming to be honest..." she laughed, "I've honestly did...Well either way..What I hope to see change the most is simple...I want for the European parties to get along and to accept each others views rather then fight against each other...Because many of us must realize that only through mutual respect can we truly deliver for our people and allow the region to reach its full potential".

    Songs to save the Planet!
    Article by Jazzy Hands

    "Song for the Environment" is a project formed by Os Corelian and the Rechroatian governments whose goal is to inspire people to keep the planet green. The first concert was hosted in Red Croatia, dues to the fact that Os Corelia is already busy with an other "musical event" which you can read about in the "Os Corelian Sound Drops". The first concert started around 17:20 in Ljubjana's Central Park and it featured many foreign artists such as Green Day, Anouk, Amy MacDonald and such.

    The concert started off traditionally, with all of the artists presenting themselves to the visitors and making sure that they know the cause of this event. The concert has ended at 23:55, but the visitors have extended the event all the way to the dawn either way. A notable mention is that even though the event was hosted for free Red Croatia managed to pull out profit from it by inviting the foreign visitors to extend their visit to Red Croatia.

But besides that, Mikaela Klingenberg has had an active political life as the Inquistan councilor who has proven herself as worthy many times. Such 'times' include when she, along with many other european councilors brought the Jeff Speller case to attention of the international community, which deserves praises and many interviews from which the most recent one was during the Inquistan Lounge where she has constructively criticized the UEC elections.

    Queen Aleksandra Aries III.

    Queen Aleksandra Aries III. is the first liberal leader of Red Croatia. Even though she has kept the title of the Queen and still respects every royal tradition she has always asked her people what do they want, and then used her absolutist power to perform it, leading to a more organized way of "Democracy" where the people don't abuse the freedom of speech. After long negotiations with the Rechroatian government at January 22th, one day after her birthday, with her people's blessing she has at last signed the contact by which Red Croatia has at last entered the EU. Even though she is not often seen at political events ever since, she has never lacked time to perform her duties. There is not much known about her personal life besides her love for art.

    Yami Yugi, Slifter the Sky Dragon, Obelisk the Tormentor and The Winged Dragon of Rah

    Duel Monsters, a popular Rechroatian animated cartoon series which started airing only six months ago has started gaining large amount of attention after the second Season Finale which has gained unbelievably high critics which ensured the anime's dashing success success. The inventor of the TV series Atem Anders has recently taken part in a exclusive interview with Rerum Novarum.

    Welcome, sir Anders. First of all, before starting with asking you any questions I would like to thank you for accepting our interview request.
    It was a pleasure to be invited.

    Very well then, let us begin! First off, I would like to ask you - Are you happy with the delivered results?
    Why of course! I would be rather silly not to be happy! I am very glad that Red Croatia has finally shown a bit more competitiveness when it comes to television industry, especially since I begun playing a large role in it, as well with all of my team.

    It was also mentioned that Duel Monsters are showing in some other European countries, is the animated cartoon as popular there?
    Well sadly, we are still getting there. Sadly, for now only four European countries are featuring Duel Monsters on their TV Channels, Angleter, Gun-Totting Animals, Bakrova and Rhine Ruhr. However, if we continue making quality product I am sure that more European countries will start as well.

    Thank you for this, rather short interview Atem, I am sure that a bright future is a head of you.
    I feel the same way.

    Blair Von Schroeder's Thoughts on Commission Elections
    Article by Alexis Rhodes

    Blair Von Schroeder, a member of Red Croatia's Party of International Relations & UEC's candidate for the Commission Elections

    Blair Von Schrpeder, today on 14th on May during the Commission Election period has gave an exclusive interview to Rerum Novarum. The candidate shared her thoughts on the current voting stance, who is likely going to take the premiership and which commission spot is she most likely going to be put in if she gets elected.

    Welcome Mrs. Von Schroeder, It is a rather great honor to interview a person of your reputation. First off, I would like from you to tell me, are you feeling optimistic about the commission elections? Do you believe that you're even going to enter the commission?
    Thank you for that direct question. To be honest, I am very optimistic about making it to the commission, and I am sure that because of my hard word I will be able to. Even though I am slightly ashamed of it.

    What do you mean by "Slightly ashamed of it"? What is wrong about feeling confident about making it to the commission?
    Allow me to correct myself, I don't feel ashamed of it, the emotion i'm going trough now is sadness and pity. It's a shame that one of the candidates is not going to make it to the commission and will be left out. Especially since all of us have worked so hard.

    Interesting. Mrs. Von Schroeder, now that you have mentioned it, I would like for you to tell me, who do you think is not going to make it to the commission?
    Well judging from now, it can only be either me, Mr. Barrington or Mrs. Rivas, so I am not going to be able to answer that question. However, what I can tell you is that I honestly hope that Mrs. Rivas from Northern Caesarea is the one not making it to the commission.

    Well not the interview is getting spicy..We're on a good path Mrs. Von Schroeder. Would you mind telling me why do you think that Mrs. Silvas should not be making it to the commission?
    Well you see, I honestly don't think that she is going to do a very good job dues to her and the Northern Caesarea's National Government's lack of activity. We need strong candidates which are passionate about this region to make it to the commission, but I don't think that Mrs. Marie Rilvas is one of those candidates.

    Very well then, Mrs. Von Schroeder. Now that we are done with that question, I would like to ask you, who do you think is going to take the premiership?
    Well according to the current votes, it's either Mrs. Colleen Bennet or Mr. Peter Montford. I however believe that Mr. Peter Montford should be the one to do it because trough out his past he continued proving himself as a worthy commissioner.

    But what about Miss Karolzinzazas Jadala or whatever her name is You don't believe that she's still in the run?
    Allow me to correct you. I never said that I don't believe that she's still in the run, I said that is only what the current votes show. However, I wouldn't be shocked if Miss Karolinasz Jaedala continued gaining support from the Union of Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for a Green Europe, saving her at the last minute and allowing her to put up a fight against the other two potential premiers.

    Mrs. Blair Von Schroeder, I would like to ask you my final question. Which spot do you think you're most likely to be put in, IF you enter the commission?
    Well the spot that I and many others that gave me their opinion on this believe that I would be most pleasant in is the Internal Affairs Office considering my rich history with Rechroatian legislature.

    I believe that our time is up and that it's time for this interview to end. I once again, thank you for your time.
    You are most certainly welcome.

    The Run for the European Premier

    _Peter Montford with most 1st prefs makes it to the second round, Bennett, Jaedala, Rivas and Von Schroeder are tied with 4 1st prefs, but dues to the fact that Von Schroeder has the most 2nd prefs she makes it to the second round, Rivas exits, and with that, the other two get their pass. Bennett is transferred with no points, while Von Schroeder has 6, Montford 7 and Jaedala 8. Bennett gets kicked out of the further run for the premier. Von Schroeder has 6 points, Montford 10 and Jaedala 8, Blair von Schroeder exits the race and her 7 points get transferred to Peter Montford. Peter Montford keeps a 9 point lead over Karolinasz Jaedala and wins the Premier Elections. Peter Montford gets announced Premier.
    _

    To signify the importance of Blair Von Schroeder's pass to the commission, Red Croatia's Party of International Relations has called many of the Rechroatian Media to join the celebration. A report from Rerum Novarum was one of them, and he has successfully performed an interview with Blair Von Schroeder, where he managed to ask her several very important well-rounded questions.

    Mrs. Blair Von Schroeder, how do you feel after becoming the first Rechroatian Commissioner in the European Union?
    [I]To be honest, I myself have not made that much of a deal about it, because I would prefer to be remembered for other things, other then that, and I hope I will after my career as a Commissioner ends.

    Mrs. Blair Von Schroeder, in your last interview you have said that you didn't want for Marie Rivas to enter the Commission, are you disappointed she did?
    Honesty, not at all. Even though I myself haven't witnessed her passion towards this region, the stories of others made me look at her from a different perspective. However, I will still keep an eye out for her. Blair Von Schroeder said jokingly and laughed.

    While you, and other four candidates have successfully made it to the commission, Augustus Barrington, has not been as successful, do you have any comments?
    Even though I am sad that he was not able to make it, I cannot help but to be happy for myself and the others. I know that he is a good man, and that there's still some time ahead of him. Let's just hope that he managed to use it up in the most honorable way possible.

    After the interview, Blair von Schroeder has personally held an inspiring speech, showing her gratitude towards the European Union and all of the member countries, especially the those whose government's have voted for her.
