There are nearly 7.2 billion people on our planet. Isn't that shocking? As it is, I think most of us Generation Y's are feeling that we are running out of space. For what? I'm not exactly sure. In fact, space is no longer the issue. Rather, it is affordable, efficient and available health care. The international program, Doctors Without Borders, also known by its French name Médecins Sans Frontieres (pardon the lack of accent grave for any French readers), caught my eye in this re...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

Everybody learns about wars in their history classes. The basics include: who fought, what was the cause, and who won? But do we teach children about the real information behind wars? Do we teach our kids that during wars, millions of people may die just by being caught in the crossfire or that servant citizens by the hundreds of thousands may have lost their lives on the battlefield? Why do we speak of wars with such reverence and pride that we have forgotten what the real objecti...

There are many poor, sick, underprivileged people in the world. Of course, all of us can say that we knew that. We can say that we saw it on the news one day or that our history teacher was discussing some vague issue in some ambiguous manner with us; but what are we doing about it? Poverty and suffering have a very obvious correlation that we can link with a slew of statistics and data. However, I'm not here to give you that litany of things. I'm here to do and help you do what...

I wrote a speech about Child Labor. I had the opportunity to deliver to a group of people about two years ago in a competition sponsored by the Rotary Club. Although prizes and medallions were far from the glitz of this serious event, I wanted to share with you all my speech. It is, perhaps, one of the most passionate addresses I've given, regardless of the text which lies so banally on this blank screen. Let me know what you think! Child Labor and the Never Ending Plague of...

Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

The American government has shut down. After this past week's events and our bicameral legislature falling apart, American civilians are looking for a shining light ahead. In 1776, our founding fathers drafted a constitution to create a representative democracy. In this sense, Americans have had rights and regulations around them for centuries, it's part of this democratic culture. I am all for democracy, I mean I am perhaps the biggest advocate for democracy out there. Although...

Who brings the news to civilians in Syria? In the United States, we have the liberty of free press. Our news is so accessible we have a 24-hour news network. There are written sources, connections on social media, and endless television broadcasts. However, in more impoverished or politically restricted countries, journalism is restrained heavily. While speaking to the US Director of Reporters without Borders (or Reporters Sans Frontières - RSF), I learned a few things about the p...
