In the 70´s, personal phones were nearly non-existent, there was only 1 phone for the whole family and it was mostly for urgent matters. Today it is rare to find a person who doesn’t own a smartphone; it has become a part of our life, our partner in our chores and has helped to simplify tasks for us. Sadly, for most people it has become an addiction that has not only brought benefits but also cons in the way society gets along with the world. In fact, the Centro de Estudios Especializado en Tra...

Think because you can! Thinking is what makes us a better person. Think of your weaknesses and how you can improve on yesterday. Thinking is our first step to meeting our goals. If you never think, you will never learn. The power of thinking is the power of creativity. Just ask painters, bloggers, and artists.Think when you are wrong, think when you're right. This is how you will successful. If we do not think for ourselves, than who will? Think and change the world .

LOST. I feel completely lost. I lack direction.Let me explain...Everyone believes they have a bright future right? Me too. The problem is, I don't know in what (career wise, to be clear). Since I was young, I've wanted to be a singer and use it to change the world. Of course, my dream was shunned by many and people kept telling me I would grow out of it when reality would hit. Sadly, but truly, I was hit by reality and here I am losing my passion to be a singer everyday. I barely even sing anymo...

BUT there are so many problems that you are unwilling to tackle, for power, money, influence or your own interests, sake. In this open letter to you, the leaders of the free world, I would like to c...

Who said you can't make changes in your life?By the way, mistakes are the real winds of change. Nothing teaches you more than to find that some streets are a dead end. Here, in Brazil, we say: if counsels were good, they would not...

By Rahaf H., Amman Innovation Lab I am 16 years old, I'm in school and I like designing and engineering in general. But before hearing about the innovation labs my ideas, hobbies and ambitions were different. I liked video games, and I wanted to be a nurse in the future and to enjoy working and helping others. But this did not last after I learned about the labs and participated in several courses. In the first course, we created a video game - we started by designing and then programming. A...
