Better ways to help the poor
25. May 2020 at 21:53
by Lesath Samarakone
There has been a recent surgency of income-equality activists that are vying for equality, in education, healthcare and income for the poor, and it would seem to indicate that there is real change is societal structure. There is strong indication that the quantity of charitable donations has increased over at twelve-year span, as the number of charities stay relatively the same, ⁽¹⁾ but the rate of poverty has stayed relatively the same over two decades ⁽²⁾ This suggests that the current systems to combat poverty, endemic healthcare an educational barriers does not seem to have the effect that activists would like to observe, and that the approaches that would wield worthy results are being swept under the political rug.

“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...

The legality and morality of humanitarian intervention
20. May 2020 at 21:27
by Marton Jasz
The question of humanitarian intervention is still an ongoing debate, whether we examine it legally, morally or politically. The ambiguities concerning the responsibilities of states to intervene in another state’s domestic affairs in order to prevent any sort of human rights abuses seem to be evident, however the truth is different.

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?
18. May 2020 at 21:08
by Siddiqa Magar
The ever insatiable student who's constantly groped with criteria of making a well-lived life can only find true contentment from within and only that happiness stays. The depth that one carries is the only true beauty. Self-reflection and confidence will always be at your rescue so never let that fade away.

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...

Anti-Breast Cancer activities of Dietary Phytonutrients
11. May 2020 at 17:14
by Success Eko
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children after accidents (Joanne et al., 2000) and the second most leading cause of death in the world after cardiovascular diseases (Jemal et al., 2008). Cancer is a transmutative process which advances from steady metamorphosis of genetic cells to the internal selection processes acting on the acquired phenotypic diversity. It usually develops when normal cells in the body grows rapidly.

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.

Ecosia: A Few Clicks for a Better Future
09. May 2020 at 19:37
by Swetha Tandri
The internet is regarded as one of the best innovations of modern society, providing an endless supply of information. But our supposedly harmless Googling actually releases as much carbon dioxide as the entire aviation industry, poisoning the air we breathe. What if there was a way to reap the positives of the internet while simultaneously replenishing our atmosphere? Step aside, Google. Ecosia is now our best bet.

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. What if we the consumers could use our fundamental act of browsing to tackle crucial climate problems and make headway in achieving a sustai...

Is Life Simple?
01. May 2020 at 21:15
by Mandy Sharma
In these times of pandemic, the life has retarded from pace to slow! we all were running here and there trying to make adjustments with the speed and at the same time cope with the stress and anxieties endowed with it.

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 wikihowpsychology today, or reading, blogs or articles from medium are going to b...

The Power of Our Desires
01. May 2020 at 21:08
by Abednego Ishaya Wakili
How are your desires guiding you through the path which will lead you to the success of the life which you have been made to live for? When your desires are put right, the later story will be well said of.

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...

If it wasn’t for reading Books there would be no imagination and no creativity
01. May 2020 at 21:05
by Madhav Manoj Vachali
If it wasn’t for reading Books there would be no imagination and no creativityDo you like reading stories? Well, I love reading.When you’re reading stories, you can go to places you never imagined. And the thing is that when you read many books you get so many ideas that you’ll naturally start writing a story.

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

Wonderfully made
26. April 2020 at 22:24
by Gift Bubu
You are UNIQUE You are SPECIAL You are BRAVEYou are WONDERFULLY & FEARFULLY crafted....Don't feel inferior about your looks and body. You have PURPOSE You have a DESTINATION

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 acne; 

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...
