It all started with a tweet...or several. I have always had lots of things to say, even when I didn't have the right words or delivery.

I have developed that tact, but it didn't quiet my voice.
How Has India’s Political System Ignored Its Youth
India is a country of growth. India’s civilization has been full of culture and tradition since the ancient times. The aspects of Indian’s tradition have been widening ever since then.

India has one of the largest proportions of population in the younger age groups in the world. 35.3% of the population of the country has been in the age group 0-14 years. 41% of the population account for less than 18 years of age. The youth of India holds a lot of power and courage.
Australia’s News Media: An Anglo-Celtic Panopticon
HOW’S DIVERSITY coming along in the Australian news media? Not so much. A study by the non-profit Media Diversity Australia, entitled Who Gets to Tell Australian Stories? and released August 2020, details just how white Anglo-Celtic the Australian news media is.

The Solution to Pervasive Hate is More Sex
God almighty, people suck. But not you guys. Someone bash me over the head with a blunt object. I just spent twenty minutes on LinkedIn reading comments from racist, ignorant individuals, most of them hiding behind their MBAs. Why?

Equally important as a commercial waterway and US migration routes for both birds and fish. Aboriginals to the continent long lived along its banks, using the river for sustenance and transportation. When early explorers arrived they used the river to extend exploration into the interior and the northern continent Fur traders via portage plied their trade on this waterway as several nations vied for strategic points, at various times, along this mighty river when the area was still a frontier gateway (Dempsey, 2020).
The rivalry between Benjamin Disraeli and William Gladstone
William Ewart Gladstone (1809-98) and Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) are generally thought of as the two greatest British Prime Ministers of the 19th century. They were both statesmen and politicians of the highest rank who made enormous contributions to the well-being of their country. And they absolutely loathed each other.
