    Charities to Support That Desperately NEED Your Help!

    Charities to Support That Desperately NEED Your Help!

    These charities range from women, people of color, low-income housing with children, and the elderly. It's aiming towards the people who have been hit the hardest during this pandemic. Now in no way is this supposed to be political, but in America, we are struggling harder than most countries right now. So I thought I would write this up to remind everyone that there are still people that need our help!

    GiveDirectly: How They Promote Change with Cash

    How do we promote change? How do we promote change on a global scale? Especially when it comes to something as ambiguous yet dynamic as poverty. Countries have researched the general sources of global extreme poverty in their nations, but for individuals, day to day distinctive issues can be harder to aid.

    Scientists discover a methane leak in the waters of the Antarctic.

    Scientists discover a methane leak in the waters of the Antarctic.

    Recently, scientists have encountered a leak that contained methane in the Antarctic. Very few will question how a potent greenhouse gas can find its way to the icy waters of the Arctic, and the reason is microbes. Microbes or microorganisms like fungi and bacteria, to name a few, can be found everywhere, and they are beneficial to the environment. Not only do they recycle plant and animal matter, but they also recycle wastes. They are even liable for supplying adequate sums of oxygen into the Earth’s atmosphere, and they play a significant role in our lives as humans and animals as well. The microorganisms found in our bodies are coined as “normal flora” or “resident flora,” control the making of vitamins and nutrients we take in a while helping us to digest our food. Microorganisms have an impact on the medical field and the world of technology.

    White Privilege at its Finest in Seattle's CHOP

    White Privilege at its Finest in Seattle's CHOP

    It's gone now, but the energy still reverberates through the streets of Capitol Hill. What once was the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone-turned-Capitol Hill Organized Protest has gone back to being a police precinct and a recreational park. It didn't turn out to be the "summer of love" Mayor Jenny Durkan had hoped for and as time passed, the confusion as to what exactly the CHOP was only grew.

    How Can I Make a Change?

    How Can I Make a Change?

    If you're anything like me, you've been reflecting a lot lately. You've been thinking about health - how you practice physical and mental health in your home, workplace, and every day life. You've been thinking about race - how your skin colour can contribute to something much bigger than you realize. You've been thinking a lot - how you can make a change as the world seems to go more downhill every day.
