International Astronomy and Astrophysics Competition: Results of 2020
09. August 2020 at 19:18
by Stefan Amberg
The international and national winners of the International Astronomy and Astrophysics Competition 2020 have been announced - this year's edition of IAAC was a great success despite the ongoing global crisis.

Astronomy is an outstanding scientific subject that has inspired us, humans, for thousands of years: By looking into the sky and imagining the earth as a tiny boat in the depth of space, we feel connected and curious about all the planets, stars, and galaxies out there.

The International Astronomy and Astrophysics Competition takes this fascination sparking subject and allows students to challenge their astronomy and astrophysics knowledge in a friendly competition and - by participating - to learn more about this exciting subject and to extend their horizon.

The competition has the aim to be accessible to all students from all countries regardless of their background, school, or institution. For that, the International Astronomy and Astrophysics Competition uses today's technologies and the global con...

Hatred Over Love: This is Our Society
07. August 2020 at 09:00
by Nandira Xavier
The opposite of teaching hate is teaching love and appreciation - not blindness. If hate is ice, then love is warmth and blindness is a cold neutral. If we want to melt ice, we must be warm. Thus, if we want to combat hate then we must love with a passion. The following is an article account of circumstances one may encounter in today's society.

A child arrives.

She believes she is a princess, a crown on her head.

Completely oblivious to what the media blares…

It blares that if she is overweight, she is not good enough.

It blares that she must starve herself to correct her ‘bluff.’

It will make this princess believes she is ugly,

But the media won’t acknowledge that it is corrupt.

A child arrives.

Too young to vocalise his thoughts,

And too young to care.

A mere infant, unprejudiced and unaware…

Unaware that because he was born black,

He’ll always be labeled a criminal.


My Voice

A girl and a child marriage survivor - “With a voice and for the voice of the voiceless.

Where is my "VOICE?

To complain, To ask for my rights

To marry my choice, To demand for my education

 Where is my "VOICE"?

In decision making, In dissenting

In disapproving, In this patriarchal society


Where is my voice,

To be first in the queue of life,

To be a hero within my gender,

To be a part of this world in every dimension of life,

To be an equal partner in every relation of mine

Where is my Voice 

To tell the pain I carry throughout my life

To tell the scars of every night

To tell my story as a daughter, as a wife, as a mother and so on.


I am a Girl, Iam a Women, 

I am a fighter

But, Where is my "VOICE" ?


Rethinking city planning after a pandemic
05. August 2020 at 09:00
by Dinda Dewinta
Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed many things in human life today, especially in urban activities. The city will never be the same again and the journey to the new normal begins now.

Coronavirus outbreak has been going on for approximately eight months. COVID-19 has devastated human life around the world with a total of cases nearly 5 million and total deaths more than 300 thousand. Many cities in the world are taking steps to lockdown to break the spread of virus. At present, the COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest challenges faced by cities. This problem is not only a matter of health crisis, but also social and economic crisis, which makes us rethink how the cities are planned and managed.

Questions about the future are obviously on everyone’s mind as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe and shutting down cities and states across the world. Coronavirus provides a huge innovation surp...

The media is putting a disguising mask on the feminist movement, and this needs
04. August 2020 at 09:00

The feminist movement is being constantly marginalised by the media, causing young people to perceive the movement as non-efficient as well as toxic. Meanwhile, these same people see the first wave of feminism (the waves are described in the article) as inclusive and non-aggressive. This article contains a detailed description on how the predominating Western media platforms deteriorate the image of feminists through internalised sexism.

Being an advocate for equal rights without being attacked is nearly nonviable – not only because it is socially acceptable to call feminists unnecessary or overly aggressive, but also because sexism is so ingrained in our system it is nearly imperceptible. Part of human nature is to be so accustomed to the status quo, people – mainly the ones that are comfortable or actually benefit from the status quo – are inherent in changing it. The strong bond our system made with sexism since the beginning of time has given feminists a great number of complaints to do about it. With such a great amount of complaints, nonetheless, comes a great amount of time necessary to change them. That is why feminism is constantly evolving and cannot stop doing so. The media – both influenced by the left and right side of politics – has painted a specific pic...

"I & You cant go for long with Chest in and head down with lower level of enthusiasm". What's cultivating you??Questioning this require a lot of inner data. What's going on in your mind. From how you react or directly respond. What's the difference??

The knee foundation of a person is the right prospect of life with courage & win over the responses with an ability to check and recheck & able to make a good out of it.

Yes i know you get the topic's soul its about our mental health. Well it can also be called as intelligence but i like to call it health for the sake of this article. 

Just tell me how many times in your school, college or workplace you are able to appreciate hardwork & dedication that did never been fruitful in desired results. So where the work gone?? 

If someone or a group actually worked upon something we are not just talking about the reap stages we are considering the whole process out of it.. It included ideas, obstacles, life energy, hours and hours of work with mugging heads day and night...

The Potential Benefits of African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA)
03. August 2020 at 12:34
by Maulline Gragau
The African union (‘AU’) is composed of all states within the continent. Within AU, there are numerous Regional Economic Communities (RECs) such as the East African Community (EAC) , the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) , the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) , the Southern African Development Community (SADC) , the Arab Maghreb Union (UMA),...

the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the Community of Sahel- Saharan States(CEN-SAD) , and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development(IGAD). The many subdivisions within the continent has over the years raised concern with the continent’s inability to act as one block. 

Cognizant of the fact that Africa continues to lag behind other regions in terms of intra-African trade which stands at about 18% in comparison to Intra-Asian trade which is about 59% and 69% of Intra-European trade, the 18th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Governments of the AU in January 2012, adopted a decision to establish a Continental Free Trade Area by 2017. The Continental Free Trade Area was: “to create a single continental market for goods and services, with...

Child Marriage cuts dreams short- The role of Education as a game changer,,,
07. July 2020 at 21:05

Child marriage cuts the dreams short – Role of education as a game changer Child marriage is still pretty prevalent in our society and education is a possible solution. Here are a few reasons why your daughters need education.

With education comes empowerment. Education changes minds and lives.

 "My mum often told me to study or else, I’d end up like her. I never really took these things seriously but now as I read about child marriages, I realise what she meant". Child marriage doesn’t just put an end to a girl’s hopes and dreams, it also hampers the efforts taken to end poverty and achieve economic growth and equality. Girls are powerful agents of the socio-economic change. Early marriage creates barriers and transforms the child’s life from playing and studying to dealing with unwanted social responsibilities.

The effect child marriage has on education

A newlywed child bride has to move to a new location, putting her out of the range of her school. This happens as there are many practical obstacles for the chil...

Echoes from a Small Town of Manesar
27. June 2020 at 22:49
by Vallary Gupta
The heritage structures need to be enveloped and encompassed within the newly created precincts. They are the lifeline of a place, the storyteller of the reason of our existence that hides beneath the layers of stones and traditions. Man must progress and move. Modernization and urbanisation are the keys to the lock that opens up the gates to growth. Though, the price that we pay is inhumane.

We live, we create, we leave impressions in every minuscule thing we do. The imprints continue to speak the saga of our existence for the ages to come. We aspire, we move and we leave behind our roots that continue to reflect our pristine culture.

Today, is a reflection of an unfulfilled desire. A tree ceases to exist without its roots and so are we, a hollow empty cage of stardust without our heritage and culture. The greed for luxuries keeps us moving, a desire for comfort drives us towards a never ending race at cost of nothing but our very own ethnic pride and art.

The world is moving from an agrarian economy to industrialisation and new technologies. Consequently, it draws the crowds to the urban centres resulting in urbanisation. The trend of urbanisation ca...
