“We will give 99% of our Facebook shares -- currently about $45 billion -- during our lives to advance this mission” – Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook. It is endearing to hear stories like this, where we here true acts of kindness and heroism, but in these fleeting moments of compassion, we evidently seem to forget the reasons as to why an individual was placed in that situation. We, as a society, feel it is beneficial to help as many people as possible at once, through systems such as foodbanks or online funding pages such as GoFundMe. These systems require a lot of input from individuals that have responsibilities outside of helping those who need help, which, understandably, drives them to abandon them all together. This is on no fault of their own, as when you constantly give into a system that seems to still...
On the one hand, fundamental principles such as non-intervention, sovereignty and non-use of force oblige states not to lead large-scale humanitarian interventions against other states (Bellamy and Wheeler, 2017: 515). On the other hand, however, in some countries basic human rights are being violated by the state, which should require immediate interference. According to J. L. Holzgrefe humanitarian intervention is the ‘threat or use of force across state borders by a state (or groups of states) aimed at preventing or ending widespread and grave violations of the fundamental human rights of individuals other than its own citizens, without the permission of the s...
What does ‘it’ looks like?
What does an intelligent mind looks like,
What does a woman in technology looks like,
What does a strong academia base looks like,
What does utter knowledgeable brain looks like.
Hah; stupid ideas all around,
Much insane fantasies on top of that,
Big buildings and boards, quality crowd and climate,
Foreign lands and currencies, classic lifestyle!
Growing numbers, on and on, all over, thro...
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women after skin cancer in the United States. Chemopreventive measures such as chemotherapeutic drugs against this cancer have consequent adverse side effects but some dietary phytonutrients have been identified to play better prominent roles against this type of cancer. The aim of this work is to investigate the inhibitory roles of dietary phytonutrients against some target protein receptors of breast cancer and compare their binding energies to that of the standard breast cancer chemotherapeutic drug, Tamoxifen.
Computational methods such as density functional theory and molecular docking studies were ...
What do educational tools, news coverage, and entertainment all have in common? All can be accessed through Google. Founded just 20 years ago, Google is now an endless hub of resources at our fingertips. Need the nearest coffee shop? Use Google Maps. Need the time and weather? Call out to the Google Home App. Need to access helpful tutorials? Visit Google’s own YouTube. Boasting more than 63,000 searches per second per day, Google is a symbol of our interconnected world.
Googling has become an extension of our minds: the average American spends 24 hours per week, accessing the internet through a smartphone, using Google Apps with ease like an extra limb.

Looking at 'Life' and how everything has changed instantly, I wonder, "Is this pandemic good for people like you and me?".People who had been caught up in this labyrinth of mundane race of rats where we jiggle continuously thinking just going this one more inch, hard, will eventually lead us out of troubles and bless our lives with the materialistic ornaments that we'd desired. Well, hell to do with it! nothing like that ever happened and we seemingly got lost and vanished our own beings into some kind of imposter.
And, now while taking a sip from my coffee(because, it's the sleep buster that i had gotten myself addicted to) i wonder should asking wikihow, psychology today, or reading, blogs or articles from medium are going to b...
People most often talk of their plans in life, the achievements they hope to have achieved in life, the kind of life they hope to live, the course they hope to study, the kind of job they hope to have, the networks they hope to have, and sometimes even the kind of family they envision to have. Aspirations have a natural way of inclination to the unfolded future reality.
But the caption would still be – “what is the driving factor towards achieving all of life’s dreams and aspirations”? Whilst in the thought of that, I came across Engr. Temitope Oshuntuyi, who is a life coach and the founder of the mathematics for life foundation, who spoke on the said concern of our desires being the needed push out towards taking us to the bream of our aspirations, at the Studen...
So how does reading affect our lives:
1. It reduces bodily stress. In 2009, the University of Sussex did a study that showed that half an hour of dedicated reading is better for your stress levels than several other more traditional methods of relaxation, like having a cup of tea or listening to music. It reduced stress levels by up to 68 per cent. It is because when we emerge inside a book the tension on our muscles reduces
And God said, "Let us make man in Our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion…"
"So, God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created him them."
There are lots of people who don't really feel good about themselves. They are not confident of their looks and body.
You keep calling yourself silly.
You keep calling yourself ugly.
You keep believing that you are not good enough.
When you look in the mirror you just don't like what you see.
The stretch marks
The loose skin
The skinny look
The gap between your front teeth…
You keep over analysing your looks, destroying your self-worth.
I wish I could tell...
While there are a lot of women worth mentioning while talking about the topic, there is one who inspires a lot of women around the world to be their best.
Michelle Obama, the former first lady of the USA is undeniably one of the most influential people in the world and in history. Her contribution to be an inspiration for not only women but also many men is remarkable. While only her work is enough for acting as the root of this inspiration, the things she says tend to leave a mark in everyone’s minds. Therefore, it’s only fair to honor her words on this Women’s Day. Here are some quotes by Michelle Obama:
“Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude”
