Remember the excitement that you got on your first day of school? Try to picture those blank notebooks in your new backpack, new uniforms ready to rock, and new friends waiting for you. Now, you might feel something that we all know as nostalgia.
Apparently, these clouds have no silver linings. Air pollution is not only bad for our health but also poses a significant risk to the wellbeing of our environment. As you might already know, burning fossil fuels and biomass emit black carbon, a component that contributes to the global temperature rise and exacerbates climate change. But the clouds are already cast today. Do we have any chance of a bright day tomorrow?
Your shopping cart is full of groceries, and it's time to pay. However, the cashier does not put your stuff into plastic bags as they usually do. "I'm sorry, how should I carry this?" you ask. "We apologize for the inconvenience, but now we no longer use plastic bags. Please buy this reusable bag if you don't have one with you."
No matter how advanced our technology has become, we can't avoid the fact that some, if not most of us, still need paper at our offices. For example, in some legal departments, hard copies are still considered more legitimate than soft copies, so getting rid of physical sheets is simply a no-go even though their digital infrastructures are already robust.
Some things are just so close to us that we often take them for granted. For example, let's take a moment and think about paper. Over the course of history, humans have used paper for so many things: work, communication, creativity, you name it. It's part of our culture and daily lives. But do you really know what it is? Do you know how paper is made? How do we turn wood into sheets that people use every day?
Let’s be honest. How many times did you check out a product just for the sake of its fancy packaging? You can say ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ as many times as you like, but packaging has become an essential part of industries and marketing.
"Children of today are the leaders of tomorrow and education is a very important weapon to prepare children for their future roles as leaders of the community." - Nelson Mandela, 1990.
Do you often dream of having your own business but don't know where to start? Well, you are not alone. Some people actually find it hard to start a business because they are afraid of the risks of failure and get intimidated by the amount of money and planning they have to invest in. But what if we tell you that business can be simple? What if you can build your business right now, from the comfort of your home, with practically no risk?
For some of us, witnessing our children bringing smartphones, tablets, or laptops to their class might be a novel experience. But as digital technology continues to become more embedded in our lives, we simply have to accept this new reality, whether we like it or not. And as online learning takes center stage during the pandemic, we might as well embrace this new face of education as part of our new normal.
Judging by how quick toilet paper vanishes off the shelves in many countries around the world during the pandemic, we can safely say that many of us are relying on it heavily every day. No, we’re not going to talk about hoarding issues or anything depressing like that. It’s just fascinating how we often take something for granted and suddenly realize its importance when it’s scarce. Yep, that’s just us, humans.
"When my kids get too clingy, I give them a smartphone to keep them busy." Now that's a statement which some of us here probably can relate to. Yes, gadgets put information and entertainment right at our fingertips. And with the conveniences they offer, it's easy for us to think that those tiny computers could be helpful when it comes to parenting.
