Education System
22. October 2018 at 09:02
by Malak Majeedullah Khan
Education is to learn the techniques to be applied in practical life rather than memorizing the formulae and long complex mathematical equations. The fault in today’s education system is that the student do work of computers as well as of a human. Hence affecting their educational carrier and grades.
In past, before giving a task to an employ there were training seasons to make the employs able to operate the machines. Later on that process become schooling resulting the present education system. In past there were not such efficient computers to work and hence human have to work more but now the course is has been changed completely due to modern technology. But unfortunately we did not changed that old system of education.

Besides having modern technologies to store the formulae, students are compelled to rote that complex formulae which should not be done. We should teach the students that how these formulae can be applied and what is the technique of this process not to use them like a hard drive of a computer.

Some of the students have good grades but they don’t know the actual path of a process and lake the practic...
Disability is not inability
21. October 2018 at 09:00
by Nasir Ali Khan
In this world some people are born fit and fine where some people are born with disability. It is not in our hands that how to get birth without disability but it is surely in our hands to make our disability our strength rather to make it weakness. In this world, many disable persons have got success and many able persons are left behind.
A person’s determination, hope and belief of getting success should be strong enough to face the ups and downs of life because the life is not a constant line which always remain and go with the same pace and speed but it is full of hurdles.

In this world some people are born fit and fine where some people are born with disability. It is not in our hands that how to get birth without disability but it is surely in our hands to make our disability our strength rather to make it weakness. In this world, many disable persons have got success and many able persons are left behind. They have shown the world and proved wrong to those people who used to think that a disable person can’t do anything. The world is full of those people whose physical disability couldn’t stop them by reaching their destiny and completing their d...
One man can change the world - the Libertarian saga of Antony Fisher
20. October 2018 at 11:37
by Esimaje Onoseme
We are the change we seek, We become the idealogy of the change we we've worked to achieve. How a Man Changed a Nation; One man can change the world. The year was 1945 a young man named Antony Fisher entered the faculty office of Friedrich Hayek at the London School of Economics.
Five years earlier, Fisher had flown a Hawker Hurricane fighter plane for the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. He'd seen his younger brother's plane shot down by the German Luftwaffe. Of course, the death of Antony's brother was only one of many. British civilian losses numbered 23,000 and 32,000 wounded. But thanks to those who fought in the Royal Air Force, Britain remained free and momentum in the War began to shift against the Nazis. In Churchill's words, "Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." Antony Fisher was one of "The Few".

After World War II, Antony was concerned as he watched the British people elect a Labor Party government that was determined to nationalize key industries and "plan" the economic recovery. Fisher instinctively did not l...
From the Rock-bottom
19. October 2018 at 09:01
by Febeto Potutan Jr.
Writers are made, not merely born. Others may see your flaws on how dumb you are at making sentence construction, how slow you are at understanding grammar and how poor you are at making imaginations but don't let them hinder you from glittering in doing what you can do— when your time comes to bloom, I'm pretty sure you're a beautiful one.
I’ve been there.
Thriving to crawl like
a vine seeking to find
some ray of hope in the
lowest depths of darkness
and looming sorrows.

And something’s lurking.
Their eyes glow green
casting great fear in me.
But a burgeoning beam
of light emanated telling
me to shine enormously.

Out of nothing, there was
a sudden burst of screaming
colors in me—grabbing my
pen, creating handcrafts and
show them that I can forge
diamonds from the rock-bottom.

Leading Across Cultures Requires Flexibility and Curiosity
18. October 2018 at 09:00
by Imran Ali Laulai
When you go and visit people in the different cultures, you hear that they’re talking about the same common agenda, and beyond talking the same language, you get a real sense that this was happening spontaneously.
How many nights have you spent in a hotel in a city many miles from home? Perhaps nervous about the meeting in the morning, you find yourself lying on the bed flicking through the TV channels for something to watch to keep you awake to offset the growing jet-lag. Automatically, you search for channels and movies in your own language.

That’s a missed opportunity. Even without speaking the local language, you can learn a huge amount about a country’s culture from tuning into local television shows, especially comedy programs. When I was heading Organization and Management Development at Pepsi International, I would encourage our international executives to study local comedy shows. Comedy can be particularly hard to “get” if you’re not from the originating culture, but that’s exactly why it shines a li...
Are Lawyers representing asylum seekers “un-Australian”?
17. October 2018 at 19:38
by Maulline Gragau
According to Minister for Home Affairs and immediate former Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Peter Dutton, Lawyers representing asylum seekers who want to stay in Australia are “un-Australian”.
The Minister‘s remark came amid former Prime Minister Tumbull’s government’s news to end financial support for up to 100 Australian-based asylum seekers on the grounds that the government was frustrated by its constitutional responsibilities to asylum seekers.

The actions of Tumbull’s government and the Minister’s remarks drew mixed reactions from various sectors of society with the most prominent one being from Opposition Leader Bill Shorten who termed it as “[immediate former] Prime Minister Malcolm Tumbull’s weakest move yet.” The former Immigration minister is not the first person to level criticism against advocates representing asylum seekers and he certainly won’t be the last in view of the growing fight against multiculturalism.

Multiculturalism and multilingualism are ...
Brett Kavanaugh endorsement and the morality of the Supreme Court
16. October 2018 at 13:38
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
The argument for and against sexual misconduct rest solely on the outright jurisprudence of the court in interpreting wisely both within the framework of law and absolute morality. No one is better-off seeing that a clear case win both in morals and law is been thrown out the window all due to sentiment and emotional appeals. In this case, though, the Judge may have had his way, but in the long term, the society pays direly for this singular act of abuse of office and show of legal shame.
The victim said "Brett’s assault on me drastically altered my life. For a very long time, I was too afraid and ashamed to tell anyone the details. I did not want to tell my parents that I, at age 15, was in a house without any parents present, drinking beer with boys. I tried to convince myself that because Brett did not rape me, I should be able to move on and just pretend that it had never happened. Over the years, I told very few friends that I had this traumatic experience. I told my husband before we were married that I had experienced a sexual assault."

Established on 4th March, 1789, in pursuant of Article 111 of the United States constitution, the US supreme court from time immemorial has been regarded as one among the foremost institutions which lays and okays the garb of esteem law and morality in a land where...
God and our free will
15. October 2018 at 10:05
by Imran Ali Laulai
God is the Creator of the universe who yearns for us to know Him. That is why we are all here. It is His desire that we rely on and experience His strength, love, justice, holiness and compassion.
God has created humanity with the ability to choose. This means that we are not forced into a relationship with Him. He allows us to reject Him and to commit other evil acts as well. He could force us to be loving. He could force us to be good. But then what kind of relationship would we have with Him? It would not be a relationship at all, but a forced, absolutely controlled obedience. Instead He gave us the human dignity of free will.

Naturally, we cry from the depths of our souls..."But God, how could You let something of this magnitude happen?" How would we want God to act? Do we want Him to control the actions of people? In the case of dealing with a terrorist attack, what could possibly be an acceptable number of deaths for God to allow?! Would we feel better if God allowed only the murder of hundreds? Would we rather G...
African leaders` role in financing continental development
14. October 2018 at 09:00
by Abednego Ishaya
Aside the roles that citizens play in attaining and maintaining a remarkable developmental stride, one other aspect that will bring to the actualization of a sustainable path towards the transformation of the African continent, is in the leadership structure and management. Hence, the place that leadership plays in bringing to bare, a long awaiting development in all ramifications in Africa, cannot be over emphasized.
The yearnings towards a state of an all round development and transformation in the African continent, has been a long overdue issue. To this, is the aspect where leadership comes in: “leadership is undoubtedly a privilege and a huge responsibility: as people aspire to be leaders, we often think of the glamorous public appearances, the power and the prestige; less is thought of basic issues that confront us all as human beings” (Gwamaka kifukwe, 2017). As such, less consideration is giving, as to how one can effectively serve towards bringing an all round developmental transformation that will further develop African states. Peter Thomson (2016) once stated that “It is not just enough to just wish there was adequate public finance, or to wonder why the large amounts of private finance seems so hard to persuade to invest ...
To My Beloved
13. October 2018 at 09:01
by Francine Beatriz Pradez
What if Mother Nature could suddenly speak? What would she say to us human beings?
Dear beloved,
Do you still remember the days
When we would try every way
To see each other
Even though I had to sneak off from my mother

Does your mind recall
How often you used to call
Just to hear my voice
And often it was an unconscious choice

Do you often dream about yesteryears
As we raise a glass of wine saying cheers
For the dates that often never ended
And the numerous roses that you gave me from the garden that you tended

But do you still remember
Or am I the only one hanging on to the embers
Of a love that was once a burning fire
Now it holds the charred pieces of our love in a pyre

All along I hold these memories close
If only to give our chapter a close
However give me some time
To figure out why you acted like a mime

You acted cold
And right there and then I’ve lost my hold
On you, on us...
National Anthem and Flag: Status quo or abrupt change?
12. October 2018 at 14:07
by Francine Beatriz Pradez
Two of the top legislators in the country are proposing to amend the lyrics of the Philippine National Anthem as well as add another symbol to the Philippine National Flag. What do their respective bills mean and what does it mean if the Senate ratifies it?
Senator Vicente C. Sotto III’s pronouncement of amending the last lyrics of the Philippine National Anthem and Senator Richard J. Gordon’s proposed “Ninth Ray Bill” are stirring dissent and admonishment among certain sectors of society amidst rising inflation rates, incompetent government officials and talks about the mid – term elections slate. But are these abrupt ideas from some of our top legislators worthy for deliberation and relevant to the plight of the Filipino people today?

Under the current administration, Sen. Sotto seeks to change the lyrics, ““Aming ligaya na ‘pag may mang-aapi, ang mamatay nang dahil sa’yo” (But it is glory ever when thou art wronged for us thy sons to suffer and die.) with “Aming ligaya na ‘pag may mang-aapi, ang ipaglaban kalayaan...
The Social and Cultural Determinants Of Mental Health
11. October 2018 at 18:14
by Nithin Valsamma Rajan
“Health is wealth”“If wealth is lost nothing is lost but if health is lost something is lost”.People of the present day confront many realities; pleasant ones such as the ever growing scientific progress on one hand and unpleasant ones such as the destructive elements of science on the other. Man stands perplexed between these.
There have been drastic changes in the outlook of human beings that raise questions concerning tradition and its values. The absence of mutual care and respect could be considered the biggest crisis of this day. Mental health is in a way more important than physical health, as physical sickness, unless chronic can be cured relatively quicker. Mental sickness however, takes a longer time to heal.

Once there were two parrots at a man’s house. He wanted to go for a long journey, so he gave one parrot to a monk and one parrot to a butcher and started his journey. After months the owner of the parrots came back and took his parrots back home. Once when a guest came to see this man one parrot said please come in and sit down, can I give you some water to drink? This was the parrot at the monks place; the other parrot from the butcher p...
Myanmar: Ann San Suu Kyi and the silence of war crimes against the Rohingya's
09. October 2018 at 09:02
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
To summarise the situation in Myanmar as an obvious reality of ethnic cleansing is to say the least why individual like the respected Ann San Suu Kyi has remained silent on this issue of war crimes against humanity in the Rahkine state of Myanmar been perpetuated by a government she presides over.
"History will judge societies, and government and their institutions not by how big they are or how well they have serve the rich and the powerful, but how effectively they respond to the needs of the poor and the helpless"- Cesar Chavez (American labor leader and civil rights activist).

In recent times, there have been series of very scary and gory reports of war crimes against humanity but at no time has these reports been acted upon or taken seriously by the institutional government of the Republic of the union of Myanmar. Indeed, it has become a state controlled belligerent act of absolute will and might against minorities perceived as outcast and stateless.

The government of Myanmar has continued to deliberately trampled on the rights, privileges, and esteem values of very small ethnic groups in the state of Myanma...
Agrobiodiversity and climate change
08. October 2018 at 09:00
by Santosh Bhandari
'There's one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent threat of a changing climate.' Apart from the bulk of fussy words, this quotation by the former president Mr.Barack Obama depicts the current issues and impacts of climate change.
John F.Kerry furthermore cites the solution concerning the matter 'The solution to climate change is staring us in the face. It's energy policy. If we pursue a global clean energy economy, we can cut dramatically the amount of carbon pollution we emit into the atmosphere and prevent the worst impacts of climate change.'

When it comes to this point of talk, it would be more relevant to say that climate change is the evil cause of everything, including agro- biodiversity deterioration. But, climate change is seldom a self induced entity, it is rather something facilitated by we beings. Blaming won't do anything good. In this stage of vulnerability, what we all need to put a full stop to these critical consequences of climate change is the realization and implementation of mitigation and adaptation procedures into daily life.

Catastrophe Underlying Industrialization (The Rampal Project)
07. October 2018 at 09:01
by Jawwad Shadman Siddique
The government of Bangladesh has been trying best to take Bangladesh to greater heights. While doing that, they have undertaken some massive projects. The Rampal Power Plant Project is one of them. This project would provide a vast amount of energy and help to overcome the crisis of electricity generation.
While doing that, the establishment of this plant would pose a serious threat to the forestry, specially to The Sundarbans and create an ecological imbalance. Considering both the aspect, the common public, private sectors and the government have to decisive and critical in their approach.

The feasible and sustainable infrastructure of modern cities has paved its way upon the substantial flourishing of industrialization and factorization of industries. Looking upon the developed and affluent cities, the developing and under developed countries have started to pursue their ways into industrialization in order to stand tall as an independent and prosperous state. Industrialization has given us endless possibilities with production, development, growth, expansion and success. But the fact that it bears within itself the massive threat a...
Global War Against Terror: A Systemic and State Level Analysis
06. October 2018 at 09:01
by Muhammad Bilal Tahir
This article describes the systemic and state level of analysis. It uses those level of analysis to describe the war against terrorism in international system. Finally the article provides its opinion on which level of analysis is best to describe war against terrorism.
To completely understand a global phenomena it is important to use a scholarly method suggested by the political scientists. One such method was suggested by an American political scientist J. David Singer. Singer described the three levels of analysis in one of his reports and suggested that those levels of analysis can be used to study a global phenomena. Singe stated that different level of analysis can help us to study both specific and broad global phenomena. This paper describes the systemic and the state level of analysis. Furthermore, the paper will use those two levels of analysis to explain the war against terrorism and which level of analysis is best to provide a better understanding of this global phenomena.

Systemic Level of international system argues that the foreign policies of a state can be learned without caring abo...
Pakistan Agriculture
05. October 2018 at 09:04
by Asfand Ali Goraho
Agriculture is a vital sector of Pakistan's economy and accounted for 25.9 percent of GDP in 1999-2000, according to government estimates. The sector directly supports three-quarters of the country's population, employs half the labor force, and contributes a large share of foreign exchange earnings.
The main agricultural products are cotton, wheat, rice, sugarcane, fruits, and vegetables, in addition to milk, beef, mutton, and eggs. Pakistan depends on one of the world's largest irrigation systems to support production. There are 2 principal seasons. Cotton, rice, and sugarcane are produced during the kharif season, which lasts from May to November. Wheat is the major rabi crop, which extends from November to April. The key to a much-needed improvement of productivity lies in a more efficient use of resources, principally land and water.

However, change is dependent on the large landowners who own 40 percent of the arable land and control most of the irrigation system, which makes widespread reform difficult. Assessments by independent agencies, including the World Bank, show these large landholdings to be very unproductive. Paki...
The Israeli-palestinian conflicts
04. October 2018 at 09:06
by Asfand Ali Goraho
The conflict between Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs has endured for a century. It centers on control of territory and, as common in such disputes, is characterized by conquest, destruction, and revenge, with all the animosity and sorrow that these actions bring. Because the land in question is terra sancta to three major religions, the conflict evokes powerful passions involving identity, honor, and the propriety of cultural claims.
That its disputants employ sophisticated arguments and armaments, that they are willing to combat not only each other but rival voices within their own ranks, and that decades of international diplomacy have failed to produce a satisfactory solution, render it "one of the most difficult political problems of our time, perhaps the most difficult of them all" (Martin Buber). Marked by a series of surprising achievements, deceptions and atrocities in which each side has underestimated the tenacity and resourcefulness of the other, it guarantees fascinating study.

The conflict is partly fueled by rival normative claims that challenge our philosophical thinking. When does a community have a right to govern or possess a certain territory? Under what conditions are peoples entitled to self-determination? Are religious Claims and aff...

Should Sexual education be taught in public schools? Don't you think that Sex is like a game? When two beings play ,they lose their energy and get pleasure as they get from other physical games.
Sex is study of characteristics of human beings(a male and a female). Our Society consider it a religious blasphemy, and do not about it in public. But they don't know that the causes of rapes, molestation and harassment, our society, is lake of Sex education. These social diseases can be prevent by spreading the awareness of sex education.

Relation between political science and politics
01. October 2018 at 22:11
by Asfand Ali Goraho
Relationship between Political Science and Politics!There is no real difference between Political Science and Politics. Political Science studies Politics i.e. all political relations and interactions in society. Hence it cart be called Politics. Modern Political Scientists do not make a distinction between the two. They reject the traditional view which makes a distinction between these two.
Let us study both traditional and modern views regarding the relationship between Political Science and Politics:

Traditional View
Difference between Political Science & Politics The traditional scholars made a distinction between the discipline of Political Science which studies State and Government, and Politics stands for current problems and issues being faced by the government.

Scholars like Pollock suggest a distinction between Theoretical Politics (Political Science) and Applied Politics (Politics). The former is described as the theory of State and Government and the latter as the practice of State and Government.

Points Difference between Political Science & Politics:
1. Politics means the issues, problems and political activities which are actually taking place in society. Against it, Poli...
Rise and Fall of Bitcoin
29. September 2018 at 21:43
by Esimaje Michael Onoseme
Although the popularity of bitcoin has grown over the eight years it has been in existence, still, there are a lot of misunderstanding about what it really is and how it is transacted. This lack of knowledge has led to some people relating it to Ponzi and Pyramid schemes, while others regard it as a mysterious currency for a secret society.
However, a deeper analysis of the foundations and the operations of bitcoin reveal that the above fears are far-fetched and that bitcoin is actually a very important and timely innovation in the financial sector.

Bitcoin represents a technology where the value comes from the fact that the whole world recognizes that there’s a finite amount,” says Lee. “It’s a scarce digital asset.” Only 21 million tokens will ever exist. Right now 16 million are in circulation. Four million more will be mined in the next 10 years. Based on the open source mathematical formula, “it will take 100 years to mine the last one million Bitcoin,” explains Lee who is very optimistic about the future of the cryptocurrency. Thus , due to the volatility of the exchange market the tendencies for bitcoin to rise and fal...

Games were used to be for entertainment but now they are the cause of deaths. After the game bluewhale, which took lives of 130 teens all around the world, which was a big loss because they were not only 130 persons but 130 families were killed. Now past is going to repeat itself because another game has taken its place which is called the MOMO challenge.
This game has taken 3-lives of novice children from different countries of the world like. This game has deprived many people from their loved ones. And it is steeply spreading and killing people world widely. Also this game has been a threat and it is also being used by criminals for different reasons like: harassment, killing innocent people and many more.

In addition to this, the logo of this game is so strange. There is a girl with large eyes and long hair with an unusual smile, and one can easily feel the threat from this logo. The game started from a Facebook group and now it is spreading through the WhatsApp messenger which is most famous messenger nowadays. Momo is a game in which there are worse challenges like waking up late nights, watching horror movies, hurting ourselves and in the end committing suicide.

by Parthasarathi Kar
Corporate world has its own buzz around it.It is said that with cutting edge technology and cut throat competition the corporate world is becoming mean day by day but guess what we do have a solution to it.In order to diminish this meanness around us, let's make the work space ludicrous, cheerful and enthusiastic and all we need to do is take a moment to laugh.
While skimming through linkedin I came across an article which talked about how to be like-able in corporate world.Well most of us would get tempted and would read the article and I did the same thing.It is believed that in corporate sector, a person who is well accomplished,highly skilled may be regarded as an idol to strive for but that does not mean that he will be liked by majority.

In many of the cases, we might have experienced that the most skilled person in the office might have higher dependencies, all fuss around him but during fun time you might find him being alone and silent.The person may have innumerable solutions to a very complex problem but when it comes to the point of socialization he might feel it a bit challenging.But the same person can be socialized if he starts cracking jokes by making fun of him among colleagu...
Free speech on economic freedom for a new delta
26. September 2018 at 21:49
by Esimaje Michael Onoseme
The State of Progress and Development in the Niger Delta and Delta State in Particular is falling off the Grid, Hence a Call for leaders, Think Thanks, Stakeholders and Concerned Persons to Stand for Change
I cannot but again acknowledge that I need each and every Deltan to do some reflection on the economic state of infrastructure and policy development surrounding the Niger Delta. It's time to change the narratives and create free ideology of rescue from state capture which has impoverished the masses and new age of existing ideas

How does a state go from being the shining light of Western Region, to one that poverty rules and desperation is etched unto the faces of citizens. In the old Western Region which led Nigeria in innovation and people oriented policies, the more admired entrepreneurs and civil servants were from the Midwest, out of which today's Delta is derived.

Our country may have gone through bad patches but Delta has no excuse being the home of many poor. My view of the way forward requires that we see reasons together....
Concretization is a big disaster
26. September 2018 at 21:35
by Omkareshwar Jha
We can make such storage tanks that are made of concrete without a small leak of water from it. Also in prospect of underground water level and flood are a big matter of concern & we are somehow lacking to understand why this is happening a big picture might have more than one parameter. But atleast I wanna share one big parameter of our development is making roads but it becomes disaster without knowing proper science & management.
When we make concrete roads during rainy season the water don't go underground and it gets discharged and our fresh water that we can use is only about 1% on the planet a big source of which is underground water. For daily purpose we use that water for our daily activity & drinking purposes. And rain is the cyclic natural process to recharge the water of underground. But when we make concrete roads everywhere, big part of rain water goes else where and underground water don't get charged up.

And there is a drastic decline in the graph of underground water level. And the water we take out from underground is mostly drained out from our system and it goes in the river, lake and oceans etc.. that increases the level of rivers and lakes at a continuous fraction of rising water level resulting in flood and other such disaster. We all r...
Anticoruption: Nigeria is leaving adolescents behind
24. September 2018 at 21:11
by Victor Oyelade
According to a UNICEF report, there are currently 1.2 Billion adolescents in the world, making up to 16 percent of the world`s entire human population. In Africa, there are presently 289 million adolescents (aged 10-19 years) who make up lump 23 percent of the entire African population.
The adolescent population in Nigeria is about 40 million individuals. This constitutes about 23 percent of the entire Nigerian population. Many well developed Western countries like Belgium, Isreal, Portugal etc have populations between 9 and 12 million. Australia, the least continent in the world by size, has a total human population of 25 million.

So, beyond the stats, what are we saying?
The 40 million adolescent population in Nigeria, aren’t just a nation in themselves but a continent. Hence, they need to be strategically involved in our agenda to make the world a better place. Global Coalition, The United Nations, World Health Organizations all got great plans for Children around the world – However, Adolescents are not Children. They aren’t adults either. They are just stuck in between, battl...

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, time applies equally to all. The rich, the poor, the young, the old, the smart, even the young lady in the mini skirt who just roped her neck to a branch of the Iroko tree in her father's farm, has her fair share of time. Only that she wants to end her clock right about now. The newspapers stare silently from a telescope distance.
Girl, 24, hangs herself to a baobab tree one front page reads the next day. Another spells A 24 yearbold irl hung herself to a fig tree they didn't even bother asking what type of tree it was, but who cares. As long as the story sold and the cedis flowed, it was game on.

I witnessed the inauguration ceremony of the Kempinski Hotel in the Gold Coast City, Accra and was wowed into many wishes; I just hope this was on a full moon so they may have a chance to surface, I don't quite remember; the brights were way too mouth opening. Of course I wasn't invited to the ceremony, neither was I an Uber driver nor a passer-by. Who would just pass by a view of such royal demeanor? Not me.

The Venezuela Crisis and the dictatorial rule of Nicholas Maduro
22. September 2018 at 21:40
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
The Venezuelan situation has continued to grow from bad to worse since 2014 when the GDP growth decline to -3.0%. Indeed, it was a moment of gory like situation when the IMF projected an all time inflationary rate due to hit 1 Million % at the end of 2018.
Known for her petroleum oil base reservoir, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela prides herself as one among the world's leading exporter of oil.
