“I earn more than my husband”, Naila states while a customer approaches her shop. The sentence was ordinary but her poise struck me more than anything. “He worked as a Security Guard for a local bank but later became jobless. When this happened, we had nothing to eat for days. At first I waited for a miracle; then decided to take the leap of faith,” she continues. “With a start-up loan of PKR 15,000; I set up a small grocery shop. Five years on, the shop has a steady busi...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...

Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a TED talk about education. As a student, I found it extremely rewarding and interesting. I thought I'd share the TED talk of Steve Brown, the Founder and CEO of Ignite Channel, with you! What drives your passion and motivates you? Why do you do what you do? Most answers, whether it is good grades or a higher salary, trace back to man’s seemingly innate pursuit of money, power, and status. Steve Brown contends that these values have...

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!

By: Caitlin Emma Massive open online courses, first envisioned as a way to democratize higher education, have made their way into high schools, but Washington is powerless to stop the flood of personal data about teenage students from flowing to private companies, thanks to loopholes in federal privacy laws. Universities and private companies this fall unveiled a slew of free, open-access online courses to high school students, marketing them as a way for kids to supplement t...

One of the things we discussed at the South Jersey UN Day at St. Joseph High School was Education (Subtheme B). In Subtheme B one of the solutions to the problem of reaching every child was using the magic of Online Education to give access to children in developing nations. Everyday more and more receive access to the internet. (This site offers an estimate of how many users have access.) But this Politico article begs to differ. One of the arguments raised is the protection o...

Through few years now, I had some experience in helping kids with their school subjects such as English or Math as a volunteering task or simply to save some pocket money.

And, I was glad to accept, so we set up a schedule for our sessions. In fact I accepted this task fo...
