http://news.distractify.com/culture/childrens-bedrooms-across-the-world/ Recently, I saw something posted on Facebook which was incredibly thought provoking. It wasn't some ornate tapestry, confounding riddle or joke I could not understand. Rather, it was a demonstration of the condition of the world through the medium of photography. I was appalled. The photos were not ugly or disgusting. Instead, I felt as if my place in the world was so detached from the places of others that...

I don't know how to start this note or make the words suitable for everyone to understand. Well the affair and situation at hand makes it porous to understand. Sometimes I ask myself: *why must a man go through labor to eat? * why are young girls raped? * why are there hoodlums in our street? * why is the government not working towards advancement? * why is education porous and ill? * why is there a massive increase in unemployment? * why is Nigeria, listed as one of the most corrupt countries...

This concept is commonly emphasized on how the economic sector applied the low carbon activities and products to help mitigate climate change. To accelerate green and growth, there are three key requirements which are (UNEP 2010): 1. There needs to be strong political will and leadership to make the transition to a new paradigm. 2. The public needs to embrace the new pa...

Every time a sparkle lights in the sky, spare a thought of Chitra- one of the nearly 40,000 children toiling away in Sivakasi district fireworks and match industry. She has her burnt half her face and body. Her mother complains that it would cost Rs. 2,00,000 for the child's plastic surgery and that no one has helped her daughter. The economy is one of the reasons responsible for child labour. Poverty forces parents to send their children to work in these industries. Employers take advantag...

Educating the minority groups is an essential part in the process of ensuring that the Right to Education is fulfilled. This is especially important in the case of Tribal groups, who are the oldest inhabitants of the country. Due to their unique culture and tradition, they often isolate themselves from the rest of the country. This has adversely affected national integration and also made them more susceptible to exploitation by the dominant groups. The following is a case stud...

The idea of diversity is like any other idea because it has a good side and a bad side. In each country that has diverse people it could be a source of problems but it might also be a healthy thing. From my last visit to Indonesia, I noticed that this Islamic country is very proud of its diversity and focuses on the culture and traditions as a special thing that they are gifted with. They believe in preventing and keeping their traditions which was obvious when they held the last W...

Climate change is the biggest environmental and humanitarian hazard/crises of our time. We need to take collective actions to ensure the adoption of cleaner energy sources at home and abroad. Climate change is affecting our economy, health and communities in different ways. If actions are not taken, the result can be disastrous to life and the environment as a whole. Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere on a daily basis, forming a th...

Have You Met Galuh? He is the typical Indonesian twelve years old boy. He goes to school from seven to twelve then, after his brief lunch, he goes to his father’s coconut kiosk. Galuh’s father sells coconut drinks. Under the hot, blistering sun of Surabaya, coconut water is one of the most sought after drink. No wonder Galuh’s father business thrives. However, there are two other kiosks, right next to their kiosk, selling coconut from the exactly same plantation striving...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...
