In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan took over 10,000 lives in the Philippines, leaving the island country devastated. The Japanese earthquake and tsunami in 2011 killed about 19,000 people and released nuclear radiation into the soil. These recent weather disasters can be explained by global warming. In fact, recently severe climate events are the result of weather change that is being caused by human activities. Global warming is characterized by an increase in temperatures, which causes...

“All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one.” These are the words of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest person to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize, a front-cover feature in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential” issue, and the author of her own bestselling novel, I Am Malala. Her shocking and nerve-wracking story – sitting with classmates on the bus after school and being shot in the head for blogging about life under the Taliban – brought about worldwide r...

Most of us like cinema, like seeing movies and watching series. Many of us like actors and there are even those who consider actors and actresses as ideal persons! Personally, I appreciate cinema, I’m one of its fans actually and that’s why I was happy when I heard about the Algerian movie “L’oranais” which was produced and directed by an Algerian called ‘Ilyes Salem’. “L’oranais” is about the phase after the Algerian revolution, but it gives a new point of vi...

In this ambitious world of ours where we are living within an ethically composed web, acquiring political literacy is a matter of predominant importance. The true regimen of politics is to shape a proportional and egalitarian society denoting integrity and lawfulness but it seems to be covertly executed asymmetrically. History is the witness that testifies the deformity that politics has withstood. From career devoted politicians who have ensured substantial evolution towards a...

When you are trying to change the world, and everyone around you says “no”, you are most likely to step down…step down into some dark abyss of ignorance and inactivity which separates the losers from the winners, really. “Just do it”, you know the Nike motto, is my life’s motto. I despise fear itself. Living in fear is like living in a closet. Soon enough, you’ll suffocate and wither down to nothing. When I find an issue I want to change or affect, I get on the bandwa...

I composed this a couple of weeks back; I was feeling down and hopeless. It's probably different from the pieces submitted; But I just hoped it could appeal to those who feel like they aren't worth much every now and then; who allow their insecurities to consume them... and who need to realize that sometimes the "only person stopping you from being who you want to be... from being happy... is you". You are guilty. This was my letter to No one. I am guilty for making mysel...

It's exactly one month before Christmas and I'm looking forward for a break from my hectic life but I cannot help but think of all the children and young people in the world who won't even know it is Christmas. I think of the people who will be spending their Christmas without their relatives because MH 370 is missing, Ebola has stolen their lives and war and conflict has destroyed most things in sight. It feels like 2014 has been a year with many disasters and the year is comi...

Fresh out of college or nearing the end of your final semester in college, getting your first job is a common concern that freshers face. While it is a concern that students should be having, it isn’t a problem. The fact that freshers have to walk through hell to get their first job is barely true. In fact there are numerous companies, small and large, that look for inexperienced fresh graduates and post graduates. So where is the problem? The Fresher Mindset We all wante...

It's been over one month since Emma Watson's speech was presented at the UN but I relate to it time and time again. From my ongoing research on gender relations within formal schooling, I can write pages about this issue, but the underlining premise is that feminism is not synonymous with man hate or female superiority as Emma Watson rightly mentioned. It is the recognition and representation of the capabilities embodied in the woman and we have tried for so long to deal with this...
