The veracity of Lincoln's words to address the issue of slavery over 150 years ago were sourced from the Bible and the veracity of these words still applies today. The issue of racism is still quite present in our society. One doesn't need to look at the fatal extremes such as the recent shooting of Michael Brown, an 18 year old from Ferguson by a police officer or before that the shooting of 17 year old Treyvon Martin by acquitted George Zimmerman. Before the trial there was s...

Hey guys! This post is just to assure you that I am still alive and well (: I have been pretty busy with exams. I'm writing my last exam for the term tomorrow so I'm looking forward to posting with more frequency! Things I'm happy about this week: 1) The "re-boot" of Internet activism. I'm sure you've all seen the ALS ice bucket challenge that has succeeded in raising donations within a few days to the ALS foundation by millions of dollars and has helped raise aw...

The title is one of my favourite quotes from the short book “We should all be feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie which is a modified version of a talk she delivered in December 2012 at TEDxEuston, a yearly conference focused on Africa. I chose to recommend this “book” because despite its length, it forced me to take a deeper look at my own life and experiences. Just like her friend Louis in the book, my thinking was “I don’t see what you mean by things being diffe...

If you could add or take away one component of the Internet as it exists now, what would it be?

Let me start by saying that the Internet is literally the greatest thing mankind has ever invented. One might say that this is hyperbole, but I lack the words to describe the importance of the internet in this day and age. Vital would not even come close to doing it justice. I am hard pressed to name something that you can’t do with the help of internet. And being a student at uni, one can safely say that a lot of my life revolves around the internet. As a disclosure, I will use...

Seeing as this is my first blog post, I will start with a short introduction so that we can get to know ourselves a little better. My name is Christopher Onoka and I am a 19 year old Kenyan currently studying civil engineering in Germany. I love basketball and I am a proud foodie. So now let’s get down to business. Over the course of the next 6 months I am going to upload a blog post weekly, talking about a wide range of topics that all have to do with the youth. Discourse is...

Of the over 7 billion people that are on earth today, all those aged 24 years and younger account for nearly 40 percent of the world's population. What this means is that effectively roughly half of the world’s population will be, or in some cases already are, consumers of services and goods for at least the next half century. From a business stand point, this means that one should effectively concentrate one’s efforts on this target group, because this will be one’s market f...
