Technology makes it so easy for kids to connect and share things with friends and family no matter where they are. But these connections can come with a huge cost if kids aren’t careful. Learning to protect personal identity information, creating strong passwords, and being cautious when downloading programs and files are crucial to the safety and security of the digital devices kids use, as well as the information those devices store. Otherwise, kids can expose themselves and th...

'How has life been treating you?' That was one of the ways I said 'hi' to my friends and foes, until some years ago when it dawned on me to rephrase it into 'how have you been treating life?' My personal response to this was: I am highly terrific and I am giving life an awesome treat! Encarta Dictionary defined "Life" as the QUALITY that makes living things and plants different from dead organisms and inorganic matter. Are you defined by that quality or do you define that quality? Several peopl...

Thank You JulieVOY for that heart felt comment. As an 11 year old girl, I feel like we the westernized children in 2014 have it the easy way.

Would you eat meat produced or grown in the lab? In an article written by Tom Levitt in October, 2012, the new phase of meat production is devoid of its natural process of growth and processing for consumption. This came into reality in August 2013 when the first in vitro meat was launched, cooked and tasted in a news conference in London. In vitro meat, also known as cultured meat, victimless meat, cruelty-free meat, test-tube meat, tubesteak, or shmeat, is an animal flesh pro...

Poverty is sometimes identical with the rural area, predominantly in low and some middle income countries. This stereotype cannot easily be lost becaus...

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...

Recently a friend of mine told me how a girl he met on a social network sent him nude pictures of herself for money - which he later sent to his other friends at a hostel. This and many more are yet untold of how teenagers send sexually explicit messages to flirt with someone and how some girls send nude photos of themselves because they were pressured by boys. "Technology, shaped our way of life positively but due to the misinterpretation of its usage, we flirt with its power and a great damage...
