The Naked Truth
In history there are instances that have been misunderstood, omitted from recorded record, and completely distorted. What the world is experiencing today reflects the same blatant desire of some to distort occurrences that have the potential to upend the existing power structure. It is this power structure that has almost complete control over societies.
How Imperialism Affected the Middle Class in Great Britain
In the nineteenth century and for much of the twentieth century, Britain’s empire was so large that it was truly the global superpower. Much of Africa, Asia and America had been colonized. British tentacles had spread far and wide.
The COVID-19 Masking Mosaic!
All around us we’ve been getting used to seeing people masking themselves in most unique ways: some loosening it a bit lower so that the nose remains prominently exposed as if they’ve only now realized the importance of this organ as far as inhaling oxygen and exhaling nitrogen is concerned; some are still bolder wearing it like a necklace hanging below their chins; some even the more bolder keeping it in pocket or bags and wearing it the moment the law-enforcing authorities surface…
Fight Racism Unitedly, No Knee-Jerk Kockish Controversy Please!
The noble gesture was also made during South Africa’s starter match against Australia; of course, not involving all the players. But suddenly and most significantly as the encounter was against the West Indies, South Africa’s key opener and wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock made an issue out it, calling his refusal to bend his knee due to personal reasons. Not only did he refuse to make the gesture, but also withdrew from the match at the last minute which was confirmed by the CSA…
Why The Education System Is Failing Our Children
The American political system has been corrupted by the case of Citizens United which allowed unlimited funding in elections and led to government decisions being for sale to those who pay political contributions. Children are not voters, can’t compete with corporate interests but suffer from food-deficiency and trauma. Since the government wont help them there is a need for the people to step in, get the money out of politics and help them to thrive.
The March on Freedom
“What is the current price of an honest man and patriot today? They are ambiguous and saddened, and they sometimes make appeals, but they do nothing decisive and effective. They are expecting, well-intentioned, that someone else will correct the evil so that there is no longer any sorrow for them. At best, they sacrifice only a cheap vote, and a tiny support and hope for good success, for the right as they see it. ” Henry David Thoreau
Hats Off to Maria Ressa – First Filipino Nobel Prize Laureate

Top Reasons Why People Donate
It’s never an easy task to get people to shell out money for no benefit in return. On the other hand, online fundraising and the speed at which it is growing has proved just the opposite. At Impact Guru, we’ve had so many people donate towards personal and non-personal causes that may not have anything to do with them. This shows that compassion, empathy, and community, are at the heart of all philanthropic endeavors. It is, however, important to note that charity is no longer done in the same that it is used to. You’ll find fewer philanthropists cutting big cheques to a single cause. With technology in the picture, it’s much more nuanced now – and it’s crucial that nonprofits and all other crowdfunding India campaigners align with the mindset of today’s generation and their relationship with the charity.
The Impact of Politics on the Humanitarian Crisis on the Southern Border
The humanitarian crisis on the southern border of the United States is about the 200,000 illegal immigrants from central America and Haiti who arrive at the US/Mexico border every month in caravans and are held up as they wait to make claims for asylum in the US. This has caused a humanitarian crisis on the border which the Biden administration has largely ignored preferring to blame the Trump regime for causing the crisis.
United Kingdom Vs India: The COVID-19 Vaccine Vexation!
What the UK government has done is very wrong, unexpected and absurd: that the Indian travelers, irrespective of vaccinated or not, will have to undergo at least two RT-PCR tests and have to be on 10-day quarantine after arriving there. Apart from the unnecessary inconvenience and exorbitant costs involved, particularly for the Indian students going there to study, this basically implies that the vaccines in India are fakes, and a fully vaccinated person in India becomes ‘unvaccinated’ once s/he arrives in UK. Why?
