Recognizing Art’s Value

People have artistic tendencies but that does not mean everyone can come up with something really artistically mind-blowing worthy enough of people actually spending money to buy such works of art. Only a few are gifted with artistic talents and sensibilities and not all artists are as good as the rest. A few manage to excel above the rest and they gift the world with real art that you can hang on museums and show off to the world. Over the centuries, there has been a long list of artworks that we have seen come and go. Some have been purchased by rich art collectors to be displayed in their homes or private spaces while some are maintained in public institutions such as museums and art galleries.

Unfortunately, these artworks are always in danger of neglect and possible selling to private collectors because the government is unable to pay …

Pets At Work

Family dynamics have changed these days. Our modern life has a big influence on it but being a family is no longer exclusive to being blood relatives or comprised of a father, mother, and child/children. Pets are part of the family too and many humans have showered their pets with excessive love and attention and even brought some to work just so they can continue caring for them and still earn money to pay for bills and more. It is a prevalent problem among pet parents who don’t have kids of their own because they delay getting married in order to enjoy the single life they end up becoming too attached to their pets and vice versa. Fortunately, society isn’t the way it used to and certain industries have become more flexible to accommodate changing behaviors and lifestyle of the people.

And since most millennials have become pet parents themselves, …

Why Nobody Talks About Child Sex Abuse

As a society, we look after the needs of young children and protect them from harm. In a normal world, it wouldn’t be a problem at all. However, we don’t live in a normal one and today are dangerous times too. The majority acknowledges that you are not safe on the streets anymore and even in your home too as technology creeps further into our safe haven. The first ones to get harassed are the vulnerable groups and that include children.

The issue of child abuse is ever growing as violence become common among people especially that they see it on the news day in and day out. And even if it eludes your understanding, there are certain individuals that are just jerks or perverts that takes delight in the pain and suffering of others. It’s even worse if the subject of their fantasies is young kids that shouldn’t be …

Suppressing Activism Both On And Off The Web

The world’s population has ballooned to billions. It means billions of mouth to feed and competing for the planet’s dwindling resources. With so many people around us, it is inevitable for conflict to arise. We may not always agree on the same things and others won’t hesitate in voicing out their opinions. Others may take their sentiments out in the streets especially if it involves socio-political conflicts. And just looking at the global picture of conflict, wars, and terrorism nowadays, it is no longer surprising that activism is very much alive.

Meanwhile, there are other countries where activism is not encouraged. These are struggling, third-world and often war-torn nations that are a picture of political unrest and chaos. And we all know how popular social media is today. It is the new avenue for activists to ensure their various causes are heard on a bigger platform. These activists may …

Environmental Issues In Latin America

Environmental issues are fast becoming a global issue in all corners of the globe if it isn’t already a reality you are already facing right now. We all experience the negative effects of global warming and climate change and how they have worsened existing weather phenomena that consequently make living doubly more challenging for the majority of us. From storms to earthquakes to drought and famine, these environmental issues surround us and affect the way we all live our lives. It is especially harder among those living in poorer and struggling nations whose government is not always well-funded, and if it is, is left at the disposal of corrupt officials who are only interested in uplifting their own lives (and pockets) at the expense of the people who put them into office.

Latin America used to be a powerful region. And in a way, it still is now. But …

Traveling On A Budget

Not all of us are privileged enough to be able to travel near or far. Traveling takes money, a lot of it actually. You can’t just expect to go from one place to another, or even better, to a festival, without spending a buck or two. And if you are traveling thousands of miles, it can easily rack up to several hundred or thousands of dollars. It is also the reason why many people haven’t been to other places aside from their hometown or the nearby state. While the concept of backpacking is quite trendy nowadays with people being able to travel on a limited budget with all their belonging inside the backpack they are carrying on their back, many nations have been raising an eyebrow on begpackers who aren’t ashamed to beg for money to fund their travels that are all over the world now.

If you want …
