“Education is not just preparation for life, education is life itself” John Dewey “Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred to an individual through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be auto-didactic” - Wikipedia. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be c...

Some things are not all about intellectual or faith based logic. Personally, I don't see any sense in same sex marriage, but that's my opinion. Some people do. And having fought & won the right to live according to their believes, I think they should be accommodated. This world has about 6 billion people and everybody's opinion counts. Reality should not be restricted to popular opinion notwithstanding the cogency of the popular opinion. We must not allow any notion wha...

Listening to an Indian song Aaja Aaja Piya I danced like madness Carried by the rhythm of sounds And then I began to hear: Voices of sounds Speaking to me Speaking to the rhythm within Commanding my body Calling to abilities deep within Sounds of words without letters Words of depth and power It spoke to the rhythm within sounds of freedom & madness Timeless boundless sounds Of Power inexpressible

On Friday, 26th of June, a terrorist opened fire on the beach of Sousse killing 39 people and causing a larger number of serious injuries. As the health ministry said the majority of the fatalities are British, Belgian, German, Russian and...

In Grade 12 I was voted “Most Likely to Become Prime Minister” by my peers. While I have no current aspirations to enter Canadian politics, I can, for certain, say that I would do things differently than our current leader. From investing in the futures of Canada’s youth, to fully investigating the numerous cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women, to committing to reducing fossil fuels and the effects of climate change, to advancing women’s ability to choose and...

Countries like Egypt, Italy (Roman empire), Greece, Spain and Britain have had world hegemony at different times in modern and ancient history. The British Empire was the world's superpower before World W...

I think I am a psychic. Every time I go to the doctor I already know what he is going to prescribe me: Antibiotics. You have probably heard of them. These substances are used to kill microorganisms and treat diseases. They are so cool; they revolutionized modern medicine and save millions of lives every year. One of the cool things about antibiotics is that they are harmless to the human body. The problem begins when they are ineffective to the microorganisms that we want to kill...

I love babies, they are usually cute and innocent. I like pregnant women, so different from all of us. The protruding stomach is a gentle call on the future. Promising! I like pregnant men too, only if it converts to huge future investment. There is something that we are all pregnant about. It's called decision! - in form of idea, intentions, thoughts and dreams. It wakes us in the middle of the dusk, it slaps us to life at dawn, it beckons in broad day light, it dr...
