A journey called life...

They are five individuals-like five isolated islands. Anupam is a man who seeks the purpose of his existence and always in quest of his identity. His daughter Aalya has just stepped up to the spring of her life-started to realize the splendor of her charming self! Her mother seems to be a person who is an asthma patient and has least say in day to day events of the family. Rather it seemed she relishes tea than the happenings all around her! Salil is another person who is always obsessed…

ENTROPY AND CHAOS: THE BROTHERHOOD OF TROUBLE.

I have lived my life trying to study and find out why there are so many problems in the world or why it is very difficult to resolve a conflict. I finally came out with the following article based on terms used in science that when explained analogically, would give a logical and rational explanation to the problems plaguing society. It all starts with a spark. To better understand this, I’ll take it chronologically.

HESS’S LAW: it states –“the energy change accompanying a reaction is…

Future of personal Cyber "Invasion"

As we all know, the technology nowadays are ever expanding at an exponential rate. What we may just think of something today, may already be prototype and optimized by tomorrow.The instruments to make anything is almost limitless; from ubiquitous DIY material to 3D printer. Like they say, the Sky's the limit.

However, there's a possibility that a threat may come upon us. A threat of "privacy invasion". 

Well, what I'm thinking is not about the internet, but the future…

#Cyberpeacefare #JeSuisCharlie #Pourquoi ?

"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious convictions."  Blaise Pascal

Seems to me that Reasoning Imams for Peace "world wide" should condemn the Paris Massacres and Mediate the Shiite-Sunni Genocide.

Further there should be an Interfaith Inter-Operability Dialogue of the Leaders of the Great Monotheistic Faiths (Judaism-Christianity-Islam)…

Racism

 

I would love to see racial inequality diminish in the next century. If racial inequality disappeared forever the world would be such a better place to live in. There would be a chance for people to finally be treated equally; there won’t be any resentment towards the government from specified ethnic groups   . Today’s society especially in America has had a lot of tension at times violent due to racial inequality which is another reason why I would love to see racial inequality…

Speech Police: The Global Struggle to Govern the Internet, with David Kaye

The original idea of the Internet was for it be a "free speech nirvana," but in 2019, the reality is quite different. Authoritarians spread disinformation and extremists incite hatred, often on the huge, U.S.-based platforms, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. David Kaye, UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion & expression, details the different approaches to these issues in Europe and the United States and looks for solutions in this informed and important talk.

The Anti-Narrative

Among the electorate, especially since the 2016 election, there is a counter-narrative at play regarding the role of the U.S. in international affairs. This "anti-narrative" has two main planks. The first is an across-the-board distrust of the media. The second is the "death of expertise."

The DEA in Honduras: Targeting Corruption in High Places

In Honduras, activists like Edwin Espinal are among the latest victims of a government whose level of corruption has made it incompatible with democratic development. A number of efforts are being made to combat this corruption, however, among them, surprisingly, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). DEA efforts in this regard began in 2012, a year that turned out to be a spectacular failure for the DEA.
