In it, I discussed the use of Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites in organizing and campaigning in the revolution. Last spring, I saw a documentary entitled Blood Brother, at Sundance London, about an American who ventured to India and spent his time at an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS. The movie conveyed, using a beautiful personal tale and s...

I have seen people who are suffering from skin cancer. It can be caused when the skin is exposed to intensive high temperature, which is global warming.

Whether or not we are content with this fact, our childhoods shape who we become as adults. The kids with whom we play with and the activities that we do, shape our experiences and the stories that we tell each other as adults. Everything we learn as a child comes from our friends, our teachers and our families. Growing up, I was very close with all of the other kids in my apartment, and we all hung out together immediately after school until it was time to go to bed. I was the o...

Social networking sites haven’t been around for too long but their popularity among kids and young adults is strong. When I was younger, I remember grownups informing me and other kids of the dangers in social networks and what dire consequences it could have if you left too much information about yourself online.
