The most persistent forms of bigotry/intolerance are the ones who aren't as overt and comes in the form of microaggressions and exists when society excludes them from social and economic processes (think of Mr Norton from Invisible Man). It mentions in the video that some people, when confronted a subject of controversy like the existence of... Continue Reading →

From the daughter of a narc mother. Coming to college had been the end goal to everything I did in high school.

So, it's no secret that I love innovation and one of the greatest things to come out of the internet is the ability of inventors and innovators to reach out to a big audience very quickly to fund projects that might be deemed too risky by corporations. This week, I will be talking about Scandia... Continue Reading →
An extension of the June Quote of the Month. Xiao Mei lives to see the dawn of the day. The hues of brisk yellow match her skin like Chardonnay. “Be a doctor or lawyer,” both of her parents say. “It’s not like artists make money anyway.” Michael is Michael because Mwenye was too hard to...

I remember the very first time I met the Future. I was six years old, and he made his presence known to me when he approached me to ask, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And I told him, “A princess.” And then I changed my answer to, “An archaeologist.” But... Continue Reading →
There is a certain public intrigue when it comes to celebrities and their lives. This is even more so for those who are constantly in the limelight. However, their busy schedules and their dedication to being their celebrity persona means that they have little time to themselves. After SHINee's Jonghyun committed suicide late last year, attention... Continue Reading →

There are two root causes of all the problems in the world: greed and miscommunication.

As human beings, perspective is something that constantly limits us in our ability to understand the world and our ability to empathise with others who don't have similar perspectives. In this TedTalk, the speaker Ms. Adichie details some stories in her life that led to false expectations and false realities in her own life. I think this is very relevant today when we are often blinded by "a single story". In psychology, this is called the representative heuristic where the most available example of one thing is taken to represent the whole of that thing. This thing can be a race of people, it can be a place or it can even represent things like political and economic systems. When you only hear one perspective about a thing and it's the only story you hear, then your knowledge is incomplete and you risk making serious mistakes based on your incomplete knowledge, one of which is your choice in what to vote for. Be informed and seek out sources besides news to inform your choices.
