You were born to lead. So lead. You were not born to be a slave to corporate greed and its ripping claws. Do not be intimidated by it, for you are not a slave. You needn't be afraid of losing power, of not being elected anew. We, the billions will stand by you when the going gets tough, as long as you act like the true leaders you are, and not as slaves.
We have evolved as a human race. We were once cavemen and women, we once hunted for food. We have evolved, which leads to an unfortunate circumstance to our planet. We understand what we are doing to it, we understand that we are slowing killing our planet, yet we continue to do these things that pollute our oceans. Our oceans are dying so, a letter I will write to express the maddening concern for our planet.
Oh, hey Canada (citizens, government, all concerned with the wellbeing of this country)!
It's another day at home, at school, or at work. You open your social media feed and see another inspirational post from that fitness page you follow. There's a picture of a thin woman with popping abs who tells you that if you don't start working towards your goals today, when will you ever? You want to be healthy, right? You want to look great, right? Then get on the treadmill now! Put that donut down right this instant! Don't tell yourself you'll start tomorrow or in a week or in a month!
The Coronavirus (COVID19) has already infected 47,000 people: or reference, that is six times the number of people ever infected by SARS.
Democracy is certainly not a new word and nations around the world have been trying to achieve this state for a long time now. The modern theory suggests that the government and high-profile officials should be elected by citizens to lead the country. More countries than ever before are democratic today, an extraordinary achievement of the modern world. However, “Freedom in the World” states that worldwide democracy is in a steep decline, shrinking at an alarming rate. With this in mind, is democracy still what contemporary states should be aiming for? Can it be beneficial for newly established nations?
Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey is dismissing tens of thousands of convictions related to marijuana possession. But it’s not enough. This is great news but it needs to go further. Not only does the substance need to be cleared from records, it needs to be decriminalized and legalized completely nation-wide.
Climate change is a reality: last year, Spain suffered five heat waves, an unknown number until then. Cordoba reached 46.9 degrees centigrade, and was not the only city to see its summer temperature (already high) rise considerably from last year's. As citizens of the world, this affects us directly, and in ways that we had not even considered.
In 2009, the Democrats controlled congress, the courts and the executive branch. The more environmentally inclined party still increased fossil fuel production but can at least be credited with slightly decreasing emissions. The grade doesn’t cut it for long time environmental activist Dr. Susan Rubin, and the Chappaqua, NY resident really didn’t have to see the final report card to know that the Obama administration would come up far short. “I stopped smoking hopium in 2009,” Rubin said, and can only hold her breath in hopes that the movement she’s joined helps avert the environmental catastrophe we all face.
