Space has enchanted people for generations. When the first men landed on the moon to plant the American flag, Americans rejoiced. When space missions go awry, countries mourn. Children and adults alike are enamored with the allure of space, and millions of dollars each year are spent by governments throughout the world on space missions. It's worth considering the question: Is space travel worth the cost? The first cost associated with space travel is, of course, funding relate...

What ever preconception you have about money, you must be aware that the winds of circumstance blow on all of us in an unending flow that touches each of our lives. Many young people around the world constantly experience the blowing winds of scarcity, shortage and insufficiency. We are blown daily by the same winds of circumstance and buffeted by the same turbulent storms of discontent about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We have failed to realize that wh...

Do the youths really know about money? We all know the definition of money as a medium of exchange or a legal tender for buying and selling. We all want to make a lot of money, youths are known with having many ideas bubbling within them, but it seems implementation is impossible because of lack of funds. For lack and insufficiency to be reduced and perhaps eradicated especially among the youths, there is an urgent need to understand some things we can do with money. These...

Pay for treatments, an evil act against those most affected by HIV: The poor. Yes, in Honduras people with HIV, pay for antiretroviral treatments and viral load tests and CD4, which is a constraint to care access care. This topic has been playing for a long time, demanding that treatments should be free, but governments have turned a deaf ear to this complaint. In Honduras the poor are sustained of the bureaucracy and corruption that is increasingly outrageous. About 70% of...

Money is an important and very useful mean in our days, it gives us the chance to enjoy the life and be more creative.. It would be very hard for someone who doesn't have enough money to try to give something to his society and be an important part of it. Sometimes, I imagine myself with a large amount of money and I ask: " What can I do with it? How do I invest my money and help my community at the same time?" It wasn't easy to find the answer but I came to realize that investing...

In my country Nigeria, there is a post-university national service requirement. During my national service at North-Central Nigeria, I worked at a secondary school (high school) with almost no basic facilities. The school had only one typewriter and two shelves (supposed to be a library) with outdated brown paper books. Over a few months with my students, I came to understand the poor quality of teaching they had been exposed to, learnt to value their learning deeply, and resolved...

I have always been proud of being a teetotaller. It was a principle that I associated with my life from the very young days and to this day I have lived my life adhering to it with fierce commitment. Presently, I am interning at the Sri Lanka Anti-Narcotics Association, an organisation which works towards realising a drug- and alcohol-free nation. But sadly, alcohol seems to be a ‘sport for the trendy’ in our island nation today. ‘Statistics’ say that alcoholism is on...

If I were a billionaire... What would you do if you had a billion pounds? What could you spend all that cold, hard cash on? I know what I'd spend it on. I'd buy a sports car and a mansion (or two). But seriously what could we do with a billion pounds to help? What could we do to be a good citizen of this world of ours? I don't need to go into detail, because the answer is simple really. If I had a billion pounds I would help the poor. I would help those in Africa, by giving...

As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school. Instead, he will finds importance in money and will send him to work and bring money home. Educating the mind will eliminate these kinds of thoughts. An educ...
