Why Danish People Are The Happiest People In The World
11. July 2019 at 23:50
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
According to two recent scientific studies, the people of Denmark are the happiest people in the world. The media's attention to this issue has led the Danish people to talk about it. If you would’ve asked the reason for the happiness and satisfaction with life of Danish people three years ago, they would probably have looked at you in a glimpse of what this question is.

But today, in response to such a question, most Danes are likely to offer a variety of reasons for their happiness with a smile of satisfaction. However, it took several years for the Danish people to believe that they are the happiest people in the world. Denmark is a country on the shores of the northwestern continent of Europe with a population of over 5 million people with most of its population being of Danish descent. In the past, many people in the world thought that the lives of the people of the northern Europian region were very uneasy and, for example, Denmark was a country with high suicide and depression rates.


But two recent scientific studies that have taken place ove...

Agenda 2063 and The Africa We Want
11. July 2019 at 23:49

“The window of opportunity to harness the demographic dividend is time bound and requires immediate investments,” - Dr Babatunde Osotimehin, Former UNFPA Executive Director. For a long time, Africa has been described as a poor colonised region. However, since colonisation, a lot has changed.

Education has spread, and life expectancy has increased. Many, if not all countries are independent, and many have seen gains in civil liberties and political participation. Even as some African countries are making headlines with crises and conflicts, others are making headway with steady growth, rising investment, increasing exports, and growing private activity.

 

Despite being the largest source of raw materials with a projected GDP of $29 trillion by 2050[1], Africa has never become a real game player in the game of capitalism partly because of her internal contradictions such as unscrutinised policies and institution of reckless political decisions. To date only the resources of the continent have ...

Songs Can Have A Positive Effect On Your Life

Songs are more than just a way of entertainment. I can say this because I have experienced it and I want others to understand the same. Different kinds of songs have different effects, however, only if you listen to the lyrics and feel the music properly. The key is to try and listen to the lyrics of every song you come across and then decide which ones make you feel good and create a positive outlook for you.

The Argument on Which of the Engineering Fields is the Best.
08. July 2019 at 10:58
by Abednego Ishaya
The field of engineering has been described as of that where the knowledge of mathematics and sciences, gained by study, experience and practice is or are been applied, with key judgment bend on developing ways towards an economical usage of materials and natural forces, for the benefit of mankind.

Technological advancements have been acclaimed as the main catalyst that accounts for the different developmental strides that are evident in our localities and the global world at large. Thus, we can say “a nation which does not acknowledge the rightfulness of its engineering scope in its various educational set up, would be of no difference from a nation lacking in its quest towards development”.


The engineering field accounts for almost all (if not all) of the various developments that we see around us: structural development, transportation, medical care, in the energy sector, software and hardware designs, fabrics, agriculture, communication and so on. These developments are evident through the different engineering field of studies, such as; Chemical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Me...

7 Empowering Women Of India
08. July 2019 at 10:55
by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Women empowerment has become one of the biggest movements in India nowadays and many Indian women have proven to be the building blocks of the movement. With their pure passion for their work and their good deeds, they are very well a true inspiration for everyone.

Most of them are known and respected throughout the world and some of them are historical figures and most definitely, all of them will be remembered forever. I myself take a lot of inspiration from these empowering women and want each and every woman in the world to know about them and be inspired by them.


These 7 women are truly role models for every woman in the world and we can all learn a lot from them (Yes! Even the men). So, without further delay, let’s get started on the list:

The inception of 4th Industrial Revolution: Technology’s Insurgence
08. July 2019 at 10:55
by Jawwad Shadman Siddique
According to some experts, we are at the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution. And, its one that will make those that came before it look like mere dress rehearsals for the main event! But what is it and why should we care?

Sometimes, it seems that human history has been one big and continuous roller coaster ride. First, we discovered fire, and then agriculture. Then came the wheel, and the cities, and manufacturing and trading, followed by steam power, electricity, mass production, synthetic chemicals, computers, the internet, gene editing blockchain, self-driving cars and artificial intelligence. Scientists are now even talking about growing people in laboratories, and one day, possibly downloading our brains into computers.

  

This is one mind-blowingly craze technological roller-coaster ride we are on, and its getting faster and weirder by the day. Its an exhilarating ride but also a scary one; specially when you think what might go wrong. Over the past three centuries, one wave after another technological revolution has impacted...

The Dividing Allegiance: A Never Ending Paradox of Geopolitical Supremacy
08. July 2019 at 10:55
by Jawwad Shadman Siddique
What do the Indian and Pakistani governments have in common? Both claim to love the Kashmiris. But the two countries that have fought three wars over Kashmir since partition in 1947 have a funny way of showing their love.

It wasn’t a trick question. Pakistan was playing India. Both were arch rivals. Emotions were running high and both countries would much rather lose the World Cup final than surrender to a friendly match against the other. Of course, Asif was going to support India and so too would Rehman; as he thought so. But Rehman’s allegiance lied in another side of the border. This would be unheard of in another part of India but we were in Kashmir Valley – which is an erstwhile paradise, now divided and lost to the wars fought over it between two twin nations. The fault lines running through the Kashmiri hearts divide their allegiance. It was not long ago when five Kashmiri university students were arrested on charges of sedition; merely for cheering for Pakistan.

Donald Trump and Chairman Kim: Is this really about DMZ?
08. July 2019 at 10:53
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
The epoch making events between the two leaders who operates very contrasting governments saw the US president defiling the odds as he crossed the DML at the truce village into North Korea in shook hands with Chairman Kim whose surprise was an expression made in ecstasy.

The president of the United States Sunday 30th June re-wrote the diplomatic history books shortly after he left the G-20 summit in Osaka Japan with a surprised visit to the North Korean leader. Trump who made possible this meeting arrangement through a supposed twitter call to the Korean leader officially became the first US president to step foot onto North Korea DMZ soil. It was the second time the two leaders will be meeting since their meet in Hanoi sometime in February 2019 and technically their third after the Singapore debut summit held at the Capella Hotel, Sentosa, Singapore in 2018. It was on this debut summit that the duo first officially made a move through a joint statement agreeing on varied peaceful negotiations with the main theme being a denuclearization of the Korean peninsul...

The Difference Between Feminism And Misunderstood Feminism
01. July 2019 at 20:59
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
OK, before I get chased by a group of women holding pitchforks, let me get one thing clear, I respect those who deserve it and I do believe that men and women should be treated equally. That’s the true meaning of feminism. Protesting against the ideology that men are superior or better than women, that’s feminism. Turning it the other way around by saying that women are better than men, that’s misunderstood feminism.

Now, I’m in full support of feminism as I think that the original movement did make a difference by giving women equal rights as that of men. And I’m with the men and women who still support the ideology of equal rights for men and women. Also, I do understand that women do not feel safe going out at night and that’s because of the things many men have done in the past.


However, pinning it on a whole gender is not the sensible thing to do. Most of the women today who call themselves feminists, believe in statements like ‘all men are dogs’. Yes, I’m not making this up. I’ve heard women who call themselves feminists saying this phrase over and over again. Let me just ask you one simpl...

Nigerian students both in Universities and Polytechnics often desire to graduate with distinction, but most of them usually finish with 2.1 or 2.2. Their inability to actualize their academic desires can be attributed to lack of determination and plans in their academic pursuit.Apart from the excuse that the Nigerian academic environment is hostile, a lot of students only want to graduate with first class without shedding a bead of sweat.

If you avoid these five mistakes and face your studies, you'll most likely graduate with a distinction.
