I believe you know about dangers which can be in social networks. But I would like to tell you a little story I heard lately. It is not up to me to say where I found it out as any recording was not allowed at this school. This story is about tricking in facebook. One band of journalists created a faked page with news. Some of photos and texts were very provocative and a lot of people wrote to leaders. There was one man and he sent a message where he asked for a job. He was a...

This is a topic I have given a lot of time to ponder over, even before I was selected for the VOY internship. In fact, if one gives sufficient time and attention to the matter, one would find a spectrum of youth considerations that have found place among the Sri Lankan communities. I decided to sum up the whole gamut of things into one word: Rights. Over the years, even during the young days of my parents and much before that, the Sri Lankan youth have been very particular about...

From the beginning of human history, we had to satisfy our energy needs for food, heat and movement by using our own muscle power and gathering or hunting naturally available plants, animals and wood. Each stage in the evolution of human society the development of farming, domestication of animals, harnessing of wind and water power increased the average per capita energy use, but it was the Industrial Revolution and the exploitation of fossil fuels which marked the transformation of societies i...

When I think of our world, I think about all the people who have suffered, people who wake up every day uncertain about their future; People who didn’t even have the chance to meet their families or whose relatives were taken away from their hands. I think about pain, about all we’ve been through as a community, and about how people still stand up every day and fight, for their lives, for their needs, but most of all, for their rights. I think of them and I want to do something...
