Security is one of the most challenging issues in our world today.

Immigration is a tricky and highly contested issue in American politics and society today. The whole issue becomes “foggy” right from the get-go. The reasons for one leaving may seem voluntary to one person but to another may seem forced. Forced migration is when a person is quite literally forced to leave like a slave, or a refugee whereas voluntary migration is when a person choses to leave for whatever reason. Thus, Immigration isn’t like Abortion or Same-Sex Marriage or G...

The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

I remember reading a little about Lawrence Afere and thinking how useful it will be to share his story to inspire young people to explore agriculture like they have done technology. After many weeks of trying to make contact and waiting, I finally have brought you these insightful words. Your name: Afere Alaba Lawrence Your age: 31 Where are you originally from and where do you currently live? I am from Akure, Ondo state, Nigeria, and I currently live there....

By age seventeen, Nam* had been forced into marrying a stranger, bearing his child, and risking her life to be a refugee on a remote island. In April 1975, the North Vietnamese Communist Party took over the Republic of South Vietnam, and violently threatened residents of Saigon, South Vietnam’s then-capital and Nam’s hometown. Like thousands of other residents, Nam’s family desperately uprooted from their relatively comfortable living situation, only to cram like sardines int...

Recently on 5th December, 2014, we observed "International Volunteers Day" with the theme "People's Participation. Make Change Happen, Volunteer!". Being a youth & a volunteer myself, "International Volunteers Day" was of great importance to me. As I have been placed as an ICS (International Citizen Service) volunteer via Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), Nepal, I have got to learn more about the importance of volunteering for the change especially in the developing country...

Young people are the most vulnerable and underrepresented victims of war-zone rape. They continuously face the threat of sexual violence and experience the unimaginable consequences of war. Yet our voices are routinely excluded from peace processes and post-war reconstruction. We, who are making crucial contributions to peace and represent those most affected by this scourge, are fighting to be heard. To realize peace, governments must work to support an inclusive solution that emp...

One major problem facing education, besides making it available for everyone, is having it evolve to fit the needs of an ever changing world. We can't have schools using the same methods they used decades ago, it won't apply! We live in a world connected by the Internet, we should use this connection to educate the masses!

During the holidays we usually have our close relatives at home to spend the summer holidays with us in order to keep the family bond of love and unity. One afternoon, i heard someone singing words grinnin’, sweating’, kissing’ hugging’ fucking' touching’ lovin’ and to my dismay my cousin 16 years old, rushed to the sitting room dancing provocatively in a sexual manner. Few minutes later her younger brother 9 came in and was singing “All i want is your waist” with a...
