Self-confidence
20. July 2018 at 22:45
by Romaisa Ghous
Self-confidence is the key to success. Self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confident in others. They face their fears and challenges with courage and determination.
They overcome their insecurities and obstacles with spirit. Self-confident people are always positive. They have that charisma in their personality and determination in their eyes. They are usually satisfied with their life and encourage themselves to strive for bigger and better.

Many times we find that we're unsure of ourselves. We constantly belittle ourselves and find faults in ourselves. We doubt our abilities and skills. We just want to hide ourselves from the world. A little failure breaksus and we start to curse ourselves and our luck for that. Confidence can be a hard thing to build up. Not everyone is born with an inbuilt sense of self-confidence. Sometimes it can be hard to build up confidence because of past failures and experinces.

When it comes to success nothing is more important than self-confidence and belief in ons...

Technologies changed our lives

Science and technology dares us to dream the impossible to make possible. Every human being aspires for serenity. If serenity is the end then the technology is the mean through which one can achieve the ultimate goal. Technology gives us the courage to venture into unknowns, and challenges us to be determined when we are doubtful.

I see you don't trust me. No need to worry my head over that. You don't trust anyone but yourself. Maybe I'm way too honest- my bad, I am a Taurean. That's what gets me into trouble these days. Our past has the present looking like a fresh murder, a typical prototype of the scars we hide under our clothes. We pin the pains and dim the paints of our hearts and swear to never be taken for granted ever again; engraving marks on walls and soils to seal them.
So we shudder at the truth when told. A bitter-sweet chocolate to munch on. It looks too good to be true and too bad to be true- we judge with our scrolls of many experiences. Scrolls that define everyone to be evil and us, just us, to be good.

Decoding India
18. July 2018 at 17:00
by Pranav Mohla
The ills associated with Indians today, not just the leadership but we, the people, are not inherent, but instead a by-product of the six decades of atrocious leadership. That is not meant to excuse how we have become as citizens, but once the system of leadership changes, after a short lag, we'll all be far more worthy citizens too. The focus therefore should, at the moment at least, be on dealing with the fountainhead of India's problems until that problem is well and truly gone
What we need is a watershed redressal of an underlying injustice, with the power of people asserting itself over the political class, catalysing by the leadership and inspiration of the ideals of our founding fathers. We are tired of the arrogance, incompetence and of course the corruption of the people who we have chosen to serve. Many battles lie ahead, but just a small of start of evoking amongst ourselves a sentiment in monumental proportions for the betterment of our nation shall truly mark the beginning of a new era for a greater, spiritually cleansed India.

A logically impossible process of learning
14. July 2018 at 20:37
by Valeriia Tsytsyk
It is a commonly accepted fact that people use memory on a regular basis for memorizing and learning necessary information. In case of learning languages, Nick Bilbrough stated that “we need to go through three processes in order to remember language: encoding, storage and retrieval. During these processes, we make sense of the received data, linking it to already existing knowledge, storage of the information into long-term memory, which plays a significant role and use it in case of necessity”(Bilbrough 2011).
This procedure seems to be quite logical and plausible in case of adult memorizing and learning when the brain is completely developed and runs at full capacity. However, how is it possible for children to learn a language or acquire any piece of information if researchers generally agree that the age at which our long-term memory starts to develop is 3-5 years? Consequently, it is not the long-term memory through which children learn and acquire language but something else, unique and completely different from adult comprehension.

The process of memorizing as well as the memory itself can be described in the most varied ways, depending on the attitude and perspective of a person. One may say that memory is the mother of all wisdom (Aeschylus), a marvelous instrument (Primo Levi) or the scribe of the soul (Aristotle). Whereas from the ...

The information society challenges the education system. In recent years, the speedy, effective and global communication of knowledge has created a new foundation for co-operation and teamwork, both nationally and internationally. The increasing role played by information technology in the development of society calls for an active reaction to the challenges of the information society.
Already, new and greater demands are being made as to the core qualifications of individuals, as well as to their understanding and knowledge of the consequences of the introduction of information technology for the work and organisation of a company. The result is the efficient handling, processing, co-ordination and administration of company resources, which is decisive for the competitiveness of the company.In a society which is becoming increasingly dependent on information and the processing of knowledge, great demands are therefore made that the individual should have a solid and broad educational foundation on which to build.

Global Climate Change Impacts on Earth

by Nisha Meena
The global climate is changing: the impacts associated with the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from human activities–changes in mean temperature, shifts in seasons and an increasing intensity of extreme weather events–are already occurring and will worsen in the future. Millions of people, particularly those in developing countries, face shortages of water and food and greater risks to health. Adaptation measures that reduce vulnerability to climate change are critical, especially in many countries where the risks are here and now.
Without action in the form of adaptation of social, human, economic, and natural resource management systems, these weather changes are predicted to result in decreasing surface and ground water availability, flash floods, degradation of soil resources, decrease in crop yields, greater vulnerability to crop pest outbreaks, and declines in forest and pastureland ecosystem goods and services, thus rendering agricultural and herding communities extremely vulnerable to weather related losses of life, livelihood, and food security. Climate change affects every aspect of society, environment and economy requiring adjustments in behaviour, livelihoods, infrastructure, laws, policies and institutions in response to experienced based expected climatic events. Solutions must be integrated to address the interrelationships between water, agriculture...

The technological advancements and inventions change not only the work processes, but the everyday life too. Because of the increased access to education and opportunities, developed countries are more likely to use modern technology. Those countries can easily adjust the labor market and the whole economy to the changes.

In an economy where it’s so difficult to earn a living, many Nigerians and Youthful Africans inclusive of fellows from my region in Warri, Delta state Nigeria has opted to try out their perceived luck on current ponzi schemes or latest pyramid schemes, with the hope of making huge profit.
The need to make it in life has always been a constant nagging in most of us, and so many struggle and the more ambitious ones struggle harder. Unfortunately, as much as we struggle there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel and with the current situation in Nigeria many invest in any Ponzi scheme or pyramid scheme as they call it, to stay afloat.

The Ponzi scheme has always been called a scam with its unbelievable returns and its failings, right from Twinkas Ponzi to MMM and co. This made financial securities tighter to eradicate or bring to minimal. Though Ponzi schemes seem more secure but painfully, it gets more people to take its reins to lead more people than ever into financial destruction.
