24. May 2019 at 00:28
by Francine Beatriz Pradez
In light of the #Cancelled trend and the toxic environment that social media posits, how do we encourage educators and students alike to utilize social media and technology to aid in delivering and extending the kind of education that we envision from inside the classroom towards the confines of our own homes.

Around the globe, over 60% of children aged sixteen years old and above have an account on a particular social network which encompasses Facebook, Twitter and Instagram among others.[1] This is not a surprising phenomenon. When you look around, schoolchildren are often preoccupied with their phones in an attempt to battle their fear of missing out on the latest happenings surrounding their lives and the lives of their peers. They spend 116 minutes a day sharing content and browsing images and videos on online platforms.[2]

         In most academes, social media is viewed as a menace towards the educational growth of learners thus the ban of its use with...

24. May 2019 at 00:26
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
Placing an outright ban on abortion and criminalizing the act with a life sentence penalty to health practitioners, the state of Alabama negatively and unkindly invokes the Texas abortion ban which contradicts the fourteen amendment as well as the Bills of Rights. This policy makes it even harder for women with little or no resources to have access to good Medicare in time of want.

Embody into seven articles, its set absolute precedence on the rights and protections of all Americans.

The Leadership Scourge in Nigeria And Africa - A Push for a Better Democracy
20. May 2019 at 22:57
by Esimaje Michael Onoseme
The militarization of the electoral process is a disservice to our democracy and a throwback to the jackboot era of military dictatorship. In some areas of the country, such as, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Imo states, troops deployed for the elections turned their guns on the very citizens they were meant to protect. This is condemnable and should not be associated with our electoral process in the future.

I WEPT FOR NIGERIA AND NOT AFRICAN


Africa is dying. She is sick, directionless and visionless. Burdened with despots as leaders, the continent is in devilish but firm grips of deceitful educational systems, poverty breading economic policies, retrogression and accelerated self-destruction. Stating this, is simply lending voice to an already overstated ugly facts; it is no longer news. Worst is, it appears as if there are no solutions. Africans appear to be intelligent enough to discern problems, but at the same time, inhibited by hypnotism of some sort from desiring, finding and implementing solutions. 


Economy:

The definition of African economy is chaos, madhouse and poverty. Most of our national economic policies are made and driven by people who cannot manage a local store in a remote vil...

by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
While some may battle illness as a sign of their bravery even at the face of death with the intent of either dying or winning the battle to live again, others may have died on account of a good cause with little or no choice of their decision on such instances. No doubts, we have had cases of freedom fighters and activist who have died rallying a cause for the interest of others. However, very few have intentionally and purposefully died on the basis of altruism for others to live on account of their death.

"It doesn't surprise me. He cared enough about people that he would do something like that even though it's against my better judgment. I wish he had gone to hid- But that's not his character. His character is about protecting people, helping people. I know that because of what he did, others are alive, and I thank God for that. I love him. And he is a hero and he always will be. He just loved people that much."- John Castillo- Father of Kendrick Castillo

Music As A Mechanism for Social Change in Liberia
16. May 2019 at 00:06
by Janet M Kamara
There is a wave of social change sweeping across Liberia since the country ended fourteen-years of brutal civil wars through a comprehensive peace provision that was formerly synchronized by the regional Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in 2003.

Liberia has since advanced its development programs and partially revitalized its priority sectors through a United Nations Mission(UNMIL); and a set of assistance provided by the United States, China, European Union, and other donor institutions, has buttressed the country in the rebuilding of its health care sector, education sector, and natural resource management sectors.


The country has also stabilized politically with two democratically-elected presidents since a 1980 coup that led to sequential eras of civil wars across the country. Liberia former President and 2011 Nobel Prize Winner, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, was elected in 2005 as the very first woman president in Africa’s p...
