Ramblings

Common Courtesy

UNITED STATES—What is it about Americans nowadays where they seem to care nothing about the impact their behavior has on others. Just the other day I was out and about, and a man nearly careened right into me because he was on his cell phone and not paying attention. I mean, “What the hell?” Why do people exhibit this...

March Madness Arrives

UNITED STATES—Well its that time of year, March Madness! On Sunday, the NCAA announced the teams that would receive a bid in the tournament that has mesmerized basketball fans and those not fans of the sport for years. I can personally speak about the craze because as an undergraduate I worked directly with athletes at my Alma mater which...

High Intensity Or Time Intensity?

UNITED STATES—Exercise is something that we all must do to maintain a healthy body and spirit. Lately reports have been surfacing left and right that the amount of time that you exercise is not as important anymore, but the level of intensity that you do has more impact on the body. Ok, let’s say this is accurate, why has...

The Email Scandal

UNITED STATES—Possible Presidential candidate for 2016, Hillary Clinton has been under fire recently for using a private email while she was employed as the Secretary of State, something that has been deemed illegal by many.

Being Thankful

UNITED STATES—There is something that I am learning about life each day. You have to be thankful for everything that you have because it can be taken away from you in a matter of a seconds. Sometimes in life we worry too much about the small things, things that shouldn't even matter. Why do we do these things as...

Marijuana Is Not All Good

UNITED STATES—For years there has been an ongoing debate on rather marijuana is a dangerous drug. While it’s still illegal under federal law, many cities across America have adopted laws making the use of the drug illegal. Some have questioned if by doing so are we opening a door for other drugs. I’ve gone back and forth with this...

The Power Of A Good Speech

UNITED STATES—The power of public speaking is an art form itself, but even if you’re not the best public speaker, that doesn’t mean you’re not able to evoke powerful words to the nation. Sunday’s Academy Awards will go down in the history books as having some of the most powerful speeches that I can remember. I mean typically during the...

Fashion Police

UNITED STATES—By now, most of you are well aware of the E! hit series “Fashion Police” which was heralded by comedienne and actress Joan Rivers.
