by Zulfiqar Ali Ramzan
Domestic Violence against women in Pakistan continues to make life difficult for women. Women continue to suffer from it, which is considered as a family issue, while, the state is not allowed to interfere. Unfortunately, the problem is spread across the country, and serious efforts must be taken to eliminate this menace.

by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
An attack that claimed the lives of over 3,000 persons, injured over 6,000 persons with a damage cost worth in property over $10 billion must indeed never been forgotten lest, the world becomes prone again to the actions of terror groups. September 11, 2001, the world mourns the innocent victims, including the over 400 fire-fighters and 72 law enforcement officers whose blood was shed at the altar of patriotism. Never again.

Americans have never been taken unaware since the blitz Krieg ops that took place at Pearl Harbor by the imperial Japanese Navy Air service upon the United States against the naval base of the US at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii Sunday December 7, 1941 at about 18:18 GMT. It was one experience that places the Americans an the edge as they officially signed-in to the World War II as a contending force. Basically, it was one of FDR’s hardest decisions to make aside the great depression decision struggle.


Just like a dream, it happened again but this time, it was even more monumental as Americans was taken aback with the dastardly act of human wickedness that pervaded such attacks. It was in the morning of Tuesday September 11, 2001. Not many Americans had barely had their breakfast as others hurried down to work ...

The Formula Of Being A G.O.A.T - Eminem’s Inspirational Life Story
12. September 2019 at 09:00
by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Born on 17th October 1972, Marshall Bruce Mathers III took birth in a broken home in St. Joeseph, Missouri. His father (Marshall Bruce Mathers II) left him and his Mother (Deborah R. Mathers aka Debbie Mathers) when Eminem was just a couple of months old. Marshall had, what you would call a very traumatizing childhood.

He had to change a lot of schools due to his mother moving from place to place frequently and that resulted in a lot of bullying, mostly just for him being ‘the new kid’. He briefly explained the bullying incidents in his songs  ‘Brain Damage’ (where he expresses how he felt being bullied by D’Angelo Bailey) out of the ‘The Slim Shady LP’ (his second studio album released in 1999) and ‘Legacy’ (where he explains how he was bullied and how hip-hop helped him rise above it) in ‘The Marshall Mathers LP II’ (his eighth studio album released in 2013).


Also, bullying was not the only problem that Marshall had to face when he was young. His mother was fond of using a drug called ‘Valium’ (a drug used to cure anxiety by generating calming effects) due to some of her own issues. Moreover, she fed those...

A Brave Woman Who Rescued Her Family From Recent Punjab Floods
11. September 2019 at 09:00
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Punjab recently faced and is still fighting with what is being called as Punjab’s worst flood in 30 years. According to the news on the channel NDTV, the ministry of home affairs sent an inter-ministerial central team to eleven flood-hit districts excluding Punjab.

The Cheif Minister of the state was surprised because of the exclusion and appealed funds from the central government by claiming the event as a national calamity. Now, a central team is set to go to Punjab to analyze and control the situation.


The state’s ministry has blamed the Bhakra Bias management board claiming that the reason for the flood is them releasing excessive water in the Sutlej river. This can possibly be the main reason as there has been no rain in the area from the last seven days.


The Cheif Minister of Punjab ‘Mr. Amarinder Singh’ has claimed one thousand crore rupees after declaring the event as a national calamity. He also stated that even if the fund doesn’t arrive, then also he will make sure that the rescue operation is carried out properly.

Some Thought-Provoking Quotes By Albert Einstein
10. September 2019 at 09:00
by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Albert Einstein is one of the biggest names in Science, History, and the History of Science. Along with Sir Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei, he is one of the three fathers of Physics. Throughout his life, Albert Einstein gave birth to many theories and conducted many experiments that proved to be some of the many foundation stones of modern-day Physics.

Einstein wasn’t known for his theories and experiments. He was also known and appreciated for his inspiring and thought-provoking quotes. Some of them teach you, some of them make you think, and some accomplish the task of doing both at the same time. No matter what, we can all relate on some levels to the person who introduced the theory of relativity (pun intended).


Now, let me share and explain some of the quotes by one of the greatest human beings to ever exist:


“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”

Life is a journey that is built with lessons. If you do something and fail at it or don’t get the desired result, it’s ok. However, if you keep doing the same thing again and again and expect that yo...

Tinder in Southern Italy
09. September 2019 at 09:00
by Fiorenza Gemma
Discussion about dating Apps and how are they usually perceived by people in the Southern Italy, where they're use isn't so popular. Why is it like that? Southern Italy may be quite backward, that's for sure. But regarding dating Apps and their influences on the way people establish sentimental relationships, is it positive that we don't actually use them, or rather we are missing something?

Tinder, as many people may already know, is a dating App. During a discussion with a friend, who's Italian but lives in France, I found out not only about Tinder's existence but also that we Italians generally don't use it, which explains why I hadn't ever heard about it before. To be honest, I've heard about it before, but I hadn't ever met someone who, without any shame, was willing to explain to me how this App works and give me some tips about, for example, how to avoid fakes and potential unpleasant situations.


Since then I have been asking to other people to tell me about their experiences with dating Apps, whether if they had them or not, and what they thought about them. I've noticed that shame is something that always comes up during some speeches regarding Tinder or other dating Apps. I don't know why, but t...
