This year has brought to light the concrete consequences of our country’s deep-rooted structural racism. The past few months also exposed something we always believed to be real, from our criminal justice system to public health differences: populations of color carry the burnt end of the most harmful and unequal initiatives of our country.

Now we have a chance to close this year by eliminating a form of institutional racism — the futile drug war in the country. A crucial and pressing matter of racial equity is cannabis legalization.

According to 2017 FBI crime figures, the ongoing enforcement of drug legalization laws resulted in over 600,000 arrests nationwide, and Black people are nearly four times more likely, than their white peers to be prosecuted for cannabis use, considering similar rates of usage among communities, according to the ACLU. …

Over time, all businesses change. Yet the architecture industry is the one that is discussed a lot. Design is one field that needs to be changed and progressed more often than others in a brand. That is why, in order to make the products usable and culturally attractive, product innovators and product designers should always remain ahead of the competition.

In the coming years, what are the patterns that product innovators and product creators need to watch out for? For our brands to stand out, what places can play crucial roles? Let ‘s take a careful look.

AI will be everywhere and Easy

Imagine advanced robotics and technology of the future when we think about AI. Yet AI is more than just the things you see on TV that are over-the-top. Without us even understanding it, AI plays a big part in UX. It doesn’t have to be a complicated bot or a robotic assistant, obviously. In making the most simple UI elements, AI could be engaged. …

The world, from the North Pole to the South Pole, is warming. Since 1906, in sensitive polar regions, the global average surface temperature has increased by over 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius), even more. And for that far-flung future, the consequences of rising temperatures are not waiting-the consequences of global warming are appearing right now. The sun melts glaciers and sea ice, changes the dynamics of precipitation and sends wildlife on the move.

Most people think of global warming and climate change as synonyms, but when discussing the dynamic changes currently impacting the atmosphere and climate processes of our world , scientists tend to use “climate change.” …

Whether it’s “Ulysses” by Alfred Lord Tennyson or “Caged Pigeon” by Maya Angelou, there is something about reading or hearing a fantastic poem that activates our minds, pushing us from a different perspective to explore the world. And that’s no accident, from a neuroscience point of view.

Researchers have used brain imaging (fMRI) and other specialized devices in recent years to research how the human brain responds to poetry. Among other aspects, they have found that the brain appears to be programmed to understand the patterns and rhythms that poets use and separate them from ordinary speech or writing.

They have also discovered that particular regions of the brain are stimulated by considering symbolic imagery and the various levels of meanings in poetry, some of the same areas that really allow us to understand our daily life. …


These are some crucial topics. And they deserve answers, too.

These are some crucial topics. And they deserve answers, too.

I wanted something new to publish. I decided to write about topics that are important in relationships but are harder to cope with — things like the position of battling everyday damaging each other’s feelings, coping with disappointment or having an occasional desire towards other people.

They are common, ordinary relationship problems that don’t get brought about because it’s much easier to talk about puppies and sunsets.

1. Letting Conflict Problems Go Unsolved

There’s this guy — he’s like the Michael Jordan of relationship research — and his name is John Gottman. For over forty years, not only has he been researching interpersonal relationships, but he has virtually pioneered the field. …

I was a resident assistant at a nursing home in my hometown a little over a year ago. The summer before my senior year I began working there and quit just days before I went to college.

Every day, I had the opportunity to work in the dining room, the halls, and their rooms with more than 60 residents. Everyone had a different story and everyone shared it or let it go over time. Each person had a completely different story.

Some might not say much to me but over time I studied and valued my own special experience. I advise everyone to continue to visit their nursing homes from time to time and talk to residents and their grandparents. …

Do you want to develop yourself?

Are you always trying to change and improve yourself? If you do, we’ve got everything together. I found out about my passion for developing and encouraging others to develop only two years ago.

I was 17 years old at the time and in my last High school year. When I was dreaming about life’s purpose, I found that nothing was more important than a life of growth and change.

We get the best out of life by changing ourselves. I know that the road of self-improvement never stops after a year-and-a-half of active growth and helping others progress through life on personal development. …

Most people I know don’t like cooking. They expend time in their kitchens, after a long day in the workplace and before or between basketball, swimming courses, and some broader spectrum of parental responsibilities, what they need is bring a meal to their table. However, plenty of them don’t stop dreaming.

I hear several real confessions of unsuccessful home cooking attempts. These are sad tales that normally begin with great expectations inspired by cooking shows and an abstract confidence that planning a meal must be a pleasant job.

A standard scenario is a cook who wants to develop her food and loves an enjoyable and imaginative time in the kitchen, but who is a little ambivalent, let’s call her Annie. …

Growing up in the U.S., I recall my mother used to say, Honey, it’s not just a day for clothes and treats. On Halloween. You will have to keep the families in mind. She ‘d show me photographs of ancestors, uncles and other dead relatives.

In the meantime, my family members celebrate Day of the Dead, a national holiday in Mexico from October 31 to November 2 . In order to remember your loved ones, they will create little tombstones and attach fruit, drinks, photographs and other personal things. The graves of their ancestors are equally treated.

I am apart of a small community of scholars who work to restore the philosophy of Aztecs. My thesis is on the ethics of the Aztecs, which the Aztecs regarded as the practice of living well. …

I wish I had learned very many things when I was young enough to understand them and execute them. The thing about wisdom, and sometimes life lessons, is that, long after it’s been essential, they’re learned in hindsight. The positive thing is that everyone will take advantage of our experiences and the lessons we’ve learned.

Here are important life lessons you should learn early on:

Money never Solves Real Problems

Money is an instrument; a product that buys you needs and that like some sort of “power.”

Some people live on very little, but have marvelously happy and rewarding lives …and unfortunately there are a lot of people living on, who have horribly unhappy lives. …
