They take place only when the humidity is over 55 %.

I had moulds problems when I lived in Germany... in Italy, out of the 10+ houses I've lived in, only one had these problems (it was a building from the 17th century).

One architect friend of mine told me it depends more on the way houses are built, than the heating... I can't tell you what it is, I'm no expert and can't remember details. I also recall, back when I was in Germany, that I was supposed to live in the guesthouse of the university for a while... except it was being torn down and rebuilt because it had design flaws and moulds were out of control...

They have appeared as we replaced old gas heaters from the central walls of flat by radiators placed under windows on perimeter walls.

First you need to make sure that the house is perfectly waterproof. E.g. no leaking water from the rain, or capillary rising from the ground.

Very good thermic isolation is the second most important thing as molds appear at moist places and the moist appears there where you have thermal bridges because of the vapor condensation and generally places with high thermal gradients.

You will never be completely able to get rid of the vapor with heating or ventilation, therefore the building design is really very important to prevent condensations. In very moist places like the bathroom you need good ventilation, but aside from that I would advice anti mold penetrations or tiling and mold resistant furnishing there.

I would think of those causes. Either the central walls are getting moist somehow and because they are not directly dried anymore the mold appears. Or e.g. the windows are poorly isolated and cause thermal bridges. Due to the higher thermal gradient the condensation increased and you get problems with mold around the windows and in the corners.

Is it justified that some members of an ethnic minority, even young, barely speak official language of the country where they were born and where they live? I know some of them and I think it's a shame.

Basically, it is they own business (and it is not only about official language, but also about foreign language skills, IT skills or experiences). They will be disadvantaged at the market job and therefore you will have one opponent fewer

I see it in on Southern Slovakia with the presence of Hungarian minority (or majority if you want ). Slovaks from there rely only on job offers from Slovakia. Hungarians who refuse to learn Slovak rely only on job offers from Hungary (the situation got much better as we joined Schengenland). And, tada... the most successful are people who speak both languages.

There is a proverb:
"The more languages you know, the more times you are a person"

People who want to educate, will educate and will be successful.
People who refuse to educate, will always complain* and will be poor, unsatisfied and unhappy.

*"why do I need to learn languages? why do I need to know working on computer? Who needs modern technologies if everything had worked without them before?, etc."

Are you talking about THAT minority? I forecast a long discussion that will require mod's cleanup.

People who say that are those who are too lazy or stupid to study and try to justify their lack of culture by saying that culture isn't important. And when they are unsuccesful at work, it's society's fault.

The same discussion you can also have in Slovakia (as volodaaaa pointed out) or in Romania.

Yes, I talked about Hungarian minority, but I didn't intend to offend anyone. My colleague at the university is Hungarian, and once she had to read her written work in front of professor and other students. It was so bad, it sounded almost like Google translate. On the other hand, she lives in a town where 86% of population are Hungarians.

My father is a university professor. One time a student coming from the Sekely region, asked him if he could do the exam in Hungarian?

I had Hungarian colleagues at my work place in Timisoara. You could notice Romanian was not their first language, they made mistakes, especially with the genders (since Hungarian language doesn't have them), but in the end you could understand them.

I also had Hungarian colleagues at the university. Some spoke really bad Romanian, but they learned it and spoke better after a few years. But one of them had a girlfriend that only spoke Hungarian. In the end, the ones who wanted to complete their study and find a good work place learned the language, although at home they seldom use it.

Also no offence intended by me

My girlfriend's late father didn't speak Italian, only Abruzzese (a variant of Neapolitan, which is a language on its own). This didn't block him from going to work in Australia, Germany and France. I wonder how could he be understood by other people...

Many Italian elderly people can only speak their own dialect. They usually understand standard Italian though, except seldom used words.

I've been reading an interesting book on daily life in 19th-century England, so when I first read this, I thought you were being tongue-in-cheek calling gas heating "modern." Since I just read last night about gas-lit streets in 1860s London and the battalions of servants some aristocrats employed just to keep the lamps and candles and so on going; it was that labor-intensive.
