» Drago Stambuk: I am inclined to believe that there was a Croatian homeland in ancient Persia
By Nenad N. Bach and Darko Žubrinić | Published 06/14/2021 | Education | Unrated
Based on a large number of recently available sources and facts, I am inclined to believe that there was a Croatian homeland in ancient Persia. It was called Harahvati (Greek: Arachosi, or "White India"). ... The ethnonym "Croat" is also of old Iranian origin, whilst the Croatian name zabrana, for ruler, is also an Iranian word. It means "guardian" or "national leader". Not far from Tehran is the city of Kashan where the story of three kings who go to worship the child Jesus in Bethlehem is set. One of the three kings was Gathaspa, Gaspar. He came from nearby Harahvaiti.

By Nenad N. Bach and Darko Žubrinić | Published 05/14/2021 | Science , People , Education | Unrated
Alex Grossmann (Alexander, Alexandre) was born in the city of Zagreb, where he completed his studies of Physics at the University of Zagreb, and earned his PhD in 1955, at that time employed at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Croatia's capital. He spent the period between 1955 and 1965 in the USA, working among others at the Insitutute of Advanced Study, Princeton, and at the Courant Insitutue of Mathematics, NY. Since 1965 he was employed at the University of Marseille in France. This Croatian-French mathematician is considered as a father of Wavelet Theory, due to his groundbreaking joint work with French geophysicist Jean Morlet in 1984. He was a thesis advisor to distinguished Belgian physicist and mathematician Ingrid Daubechies.

» Happy Easter 2021 to all and to your dearest!

We present Easter customs by Croatian greeting cards from the mid-20th century (Zdenka Sertić - on the photo, Andrija Maurović, Zlatko Šulentić, etc.) to contemporary photos from 2021 (Snježana Božić). A variety of customs refer to Easter eggs, blessing of food, kissing of cross, etc. Most of the cards were provided by HKD Napredak (Croatian Cultural Society Advancement) of Bosnian Croats in Zagreb, as well as by Mrs. Snježana Božić and her father, who are using an interesting technique brought to Croatia by their grand-parents from Slovakia.
