The Dangers Of Alcohol

Daily life is a grind for some. Life is not always easy. It may be full of drama, confusion, arguments, questions, and challenges that are just too much to handle for an ordinary person.

Youth Violence: Where Did Parents Go Wrong?

Since birth, it is a parent’s responsibility to provide and care for their children. A parent’s love is unconditional and knows no boundaries. A child brought up in an atmosphere of love and acceptance will grow up to be a responsible and law-abiding citizen, always respectful of other people and their feelings.

However, that is not always the case. Some parents are not yet ready for the responsibility of caring for another human being. Not only are the kid’s needs not met but they fail to be good examples as well.

Domestic violence is a reality for many of today’s youth. But who is to blame? Children become violent when their parents hit them but may also be because they witness a violent relationship between their …

Why Cloud Technology?

The human race has gone so far when it comes to computing. From bulky computers with limited functions, we now enjoy a sleek line of gadgets that allows us to do multiple tasks at once.

Politicizing American Health Care

The citizens have a right to receive healthcare services from the government. From the young to the elderly, it is the government’s responsibility to look after the needs of the people – if not for free then at a reasonable price that the majority of the population can afford. After all, the public pay taxes – taxes that should be put to good use by the government and given back to the people when the need arises.

Unfortunately, politics is not always fair. More often than not, politicians are only concerned about their own vested interests and nothing more. They make policies without thinking about its implication on a full-scale and how people’s lives will be affected by it over time.This time, Obamacare is in the …

Women Suffer in Silence

Women of today have earned the right to work alongside men and even excel in their chosen professions. They have come so far from the meek and submissive women a century ago. Not only do they enjoy similar voting rights as the opposite sex, they also occupy important positions in various institutions – both in government offices and private corporations – that America almost elected their first woman president by a slim margin.

As confidence in what women can achieve continues to rise over the years, there are things that women are expected to bear on their own. They are expected to work alongside men regardless of physical limitations only they go through. The inconvenience of having a monthly menstrual cycle and the blessing (And burden) …

Save The Environment While We Still Can

The environment has changed so much over the years. If you look around you, only a few remains the same and almost everything else is brand new. Even when looking at old photographs, the difference is striking you’d often wonder what it was like living back in the days.

As much as we embrace change and development, it breaks our heart to see how much Mother Nature suffers from man-made destructions. Forests are slowly disappearing, so are the animals living in it. More animals have now gone extinct because of poaching or the destruction of their homes. Water is polluted because we never learned how to dispose of our trash properly. Toxic waste products of big production plants go directly to our rivers, it’s no wonder …

The Women of Science – The Struggle Is Real

We were taught from a young age that those who shaped history were men. But since we just celebrated the International Women’s Day this week, we should also recognize the contributions of women in science. If not for their specific achievements, then let us pay tribute to them for being the inspiration of great men of yesteryears. After all, behind a great man is a great woman.

Indeed, many great women have walked this earth and their contributions have outlived them and benefit many of us today. Theguardian.com has a story on women who are unsung heroes in the field of science.

This is where history steps in to remind us that even the ability to participate in science has always been political. TrowelBlazers is

How Prevalent Is Hacking In Today’s World

Now that we all breathe social media, it is no longer surprising that a single person owns more than one electronic device – smartphone, tablet, iPad, PCs, and laptops. Aside from having personal social media accounts on popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, many of us do our shopping and banking online because of our busy lifestyle. To be honest, we just want to avoid the long lines in the bank.

What’s New With Trump’s Travel Ban?

Since he announced his intent to run as the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump never ceased to make it to the headline. His personality is as colorful as the life he has lived so far. He says the most outrageous of things and never fails to flaunt his riches.

His campaign slogan was to “Make America Great Again”.

He even disclosed plans of building walls on the border to prevent illegal aliens get into the country undocumented. Hence, it was not surprising that he issued a travel ban soon after his …

Understanding The Current American Political Climate

To say that the U.S. political climate is intense and stressful is an understatement. People get on the nerves of others simply by voicing out their opinions. It is a difficult time and confusing for many. It makes perfect sense to distance yourself first and try to look at the situation without any biases.

Politics can be dirty and so are the words coming out of the mouths of politicians especially during campaign season. Outsiders may wonder what’s really going on in a country that is among the most powerful in the world right now when its citizens can’t help bashing each other in social media because of who they voted for. It is even more disconcerting that the current political climate can make for a …

Sleep Problems In Children

Back in the day, only adults complain of sleep issues. From your productive adult years to later in life as a resident in a nursing home, sleep can evade you and leave you wide awake at night.

On the other hand, children enjoy more sleep than adults. No or lesser responsibility allows them to sleep longer hours. Their active lifestyle of play and make believe also leave them exhausted at the end of the day, making it easier for kids to drift off to sleep once they hit the sack. And it makes sense considering a child’s body needs enough sleep and rest to grow big and strong.

However, the many distractions of technology compete with a child’s attention and sleep is the last thing …
