Learn from happiness, not by pressure The politicians here in Sweden are worried, the Swedish students results in the PISA tests (Programme for International Student Assessment) are not approving, right now Sweden is low down on the list. Everybody knows that we need to change something in the way Swedish schools are structured. We look up to the high-scoring country South Korea, and trying to understand what they are doing right, and what we are missing. But are they good role...

As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school. Instead, he will finds importance in money and will send him to work and bring money home. Educating the mind will eliminate these kinds of thoughts. An educ...

If I were a billionaire... What would you do if you had a billion pounds? What could you spend all that cold, hard cash on? I know what I'd spend it on. I'd buy a sports car and a mansion (or two). But seriously what could we do with a billion pounds to help? What could we do to be a good citizen of this world of ours? I don't need to go into detail, because the answer is simple really. If I had a billion pounds I would help the poor. I would help those in Africa, by giving...

I have always been proud of being a teetotaller. It was a principle that I associated with my life from the very young days and to this day I have lived my life adhering to it with fierce commitment. Presently, I am interning at the Sri Lanka Anti-Narcotics Association, an organisation which works towards realising a drug- and alcohol-free nation. But sadly, alcohol seems to be a ‘sport for the trendy’ in our island nation today. ‘Statistics’ say that alcoholism is on...

In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

Money is an important and very useful mean in our days, it gives us the chance to enjoy the life and be more creative.. It would be very hard for someone who doesn't have enough money to try to give something to his society and be an important part of it.

It wasn't easy to find the answer but I came to realize that investing...
