Travel Destinations

Would the concept of a UNTWO approved travel destination help bolster a certain countries level of tourism? I'm sure that in a increasingly globalizing world, the primary level of concern most individuals have is safety, or at least a sense of it, and with the UN and all it's international presence,...

Time

Thousands of years ago, days were split in to two parts, day and night. Those were both divided into 12 points, based on sunlight and star formations. As time moved on, each section was split into 60 parts and each part into 60 again. Today we call these Hours, Minutes, and Seconds. We live in a dig...

Financial Crisis

This financial crisis is serious. I mean REALLY serious. I find it so bizarre how the house didn't pass this "buy-out" bill. You know, you can blame whoever you like; Pelosi, the Democrats or the Republicans but that isn't going to get this problem solved. At the end of the day I think it's going to...

RE: Israel Armies

So Israel should have waited until a Qasam hit a school and killed hundreds of children? Hamas aims at civilians, without even the excuse of "we think there are soldiers there". The fact that they haven't quite managed to cause serious damage doesn't negate their intent. It also doesn't help the peo...

RE: Age for "education"?

Personally I find "Child Geniuses" to be something akin to cruelty to children. These kids are drilled calculus and math at an early age, removing likely their ability to interact with others. Furthermore, their despair fuels a sense of self accomplishment in their "genius", which is a hubris that u...

Cannabis

So this is a debate that has been going on for such a long time in the UK. In the past couple of years it has been reclassified twice it is now a class B drug when it used to be a class C drug. Parties such as THE GREEN PARTY in the UK want to legalise cannabis they say it's a good pain killer and d...
