Has anyone ever told you that you’re addicted to the internet? Would you qualify as an ‘excessive user’? A recent report from EU Kids Online unpacks the issue of excessive use of the internet by children in the European Union. It shows that while almost a third of children show at least one of the signs of excessive use, only 1 % fell into the most extreme category. You can read the full report here: http://www2.lse.ac.uk/media@lse/research/EUKidsOnline/EU%20Kids%20III/Report...

When I say anything, I really mean it since in Indonesian mall you can find school, office, concert hall, cinema and soon you can find museum!. Mall is not merely a noun, it...

This concept is found to be excellent where youth have forgotten their responsibilities of changing the societies and middle aged has actually fulfilled that responsibilities...

Well, this is my experience with the Mercon Program, that's a charity event. This event really taught me how I should not waste money and time. There are so many unlucky children, they can't go to school, they can't eat 3 times in a day, and they can't buy everything they really need. But, the what I appreciate most about this event is when you've got the happiest feeling when you can help others who are in need. This charity event was held on 15 July - 3 August 2013. We collec...

Once I asked a counterpart...
