When will policemen become our mentors? When will bus drivers coach CEOs about the ropes of patie...

Introduction For decades Israel and Palestine has been fighting over Gaza, declaring their “rightful ownership” on the land. The disagreement between the two nations has been a long dispute.

All academic institutions aspire to form, educate, teach, and instruct the next generation. This may sound quite obvious but these all institutions want students to "learn". I put learn inside quotation marks because learning is a tricky concept to grasp. Learning is not memorizing or cramming but rather it is the growth that students should be experiencing.

Hi guys, True happiness comes about when you know you are doing the right thing for the right course. I have been volunteering as a Scout Trainer and a mentor since 2012 to date, I feel good whenever I am training and mentoring the youthful generation knowing that am touching somebody`s heart and laying a firm foundation in the life of the youths.
