Prof. Alexandru Vlad Ciurea MD, PhD., MSc., Dr. hc Mult.: Alzheimer’s Made Simple 10 March 2019
On Sunday, March 10th, 2019, from 11.00, the NTB Small Hall shall host the conference of Prof. Alexandru Vlad Ciurea MD, PhD., MSc., Dr. hc Mult., entitled Alzheimer’s Made Simple. About the conferenceAlzheimer's disease was described by the German psychologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 after the neurological trauma of the patient Auguste Deter, the disease being characterized from the outset as a disease of forgetfulness. The autopsy of the patient revealed a major cortex atrophy and amyloid deposits in the neurons, as well as neurofibrillary changes. Over time, the disease was defined as a dementia disorder with the alteration of mental processes and primarily affecting cognitive activity, memory disturbances and changes in patient behaviour.Alzheimer's is currently an important form of dementia with a major incidence (over 6 million American citizens were diagnosed in 2018). The number of cases diagnosed with Alzheimer's both in the US and in Europe is steadily rising due to nervous system overwork, sleep deprivation, and disorderly life, stress, and associated pathology.Alzheimer's is considered incurable, with a long preclinical period and a progressive course of the disorder, from minor to severe forms. Many political, artistic and sports personalities have died from this disorder, and the main therapeutic method is prevention (diet, lifestyle, connections, social life, music, tourism and positive thinking, etc.).

Toni Grecu: Let Us Be Joyful Lest We Are Sad 24 February 2019
On Sunday, February 24th, 2019, from 11.00 at the NTB Small Hall, Toni Grecu shall hold the conference with the topic Let Us Be Joyful Lest We Are Sad. About Toni Grecu Born in 1959 in Iasi, Toni Grecu attended the Electronics and Telecommunications Faculty of Iasi, performing shows either individually or in various formulas in the student literary circles. At the same time, he launches together with other colleagues the Divertis Group. The engineering career is short, intense and insignificant, but helps him reach Bucharest, where, immediately after the Revolution, he gives up computers and devotes himself exclusively to artistic activity, both on stage and on television. In the eighties, Divertis goes on several tours around the country at student events such as the Amphitheater Galas, the Moldavia Literary Circle, the Sea or the Snow Celebrations. In 1983, he won the first prize at the National Student Humour Festival, both individually, at the monologue section and with Divertis. In 1988, alongside Doru Antonesi, he writes the text for the one-man show "I am Staying Home Tonight", staged by Silviu Purcarete and starring master Stefan Iordache at the Small Theater. It was an appreciated performance, unique in its way primarily for the courage and harshness of satire on topical subjects. The representation, which was sold out, seemed to predict the end of the communist regime. Since 1990, he has been working with Divertis on television, first on TVR and then on Pro TV and Antena 1 as a presenter and screenwriter. Along with Divertis, he has performed over 1,000 shows and hundreds of TV shows, achieving true audience records. He retires from Divertis in 2008 and continues the series of TV shows in a new formula with the project "Romanian Comedy Service" at Pro TV for another five years. He then creates the news comedy show "Superjournal" at Digi24 for two seasons in 2015. Meanwhile, he and Adrian Onciu write together the script of the comedy The Bride Was Stolen in 2012 and produce the sitcom Dementia Hospital in 2012-2013 also for Pro TV. Following the general trend, in 2016, he began working as a screenwriter and developer of comedy projects for the online environment that gathers millions of views. He resumes the stage activity and, together with Catalina Grama - Jojo, Catalin Neamtu, Claudiu Maier and Cosmin Natanticu, he creates the humour show One day in my life, a mix of comedy of several genres, monologue, impro, sketch, stand-up , parody, imitation, which shall soon be resumed in a new season. Toni Grecu, who in 2010 received the UNITER Award for Entertainment, "for His contribution to the living history of Romanian humour," shall hold a conference on humour, schadenfreude and pool cormorants at the Bucharest National Theatre.   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
