Black Friday Vs. Thanksgiving: It’s War!

UNITED STATES—Last year we debated about the issue of rather the kick-off to the shopping season Black Friday was interrupting the sanctimonious holiday known as Thanksgiving. At first I suspected it wasn’t such a big issue, but after the leak of several big time retailers’ holiday ads it’s apparent, that Black Friday has now become Black Thursday-giving. Why do you...

The Giving Spirit

UNITED STATES—We are slowly coming to the end of 2014; that time of year where the holidays are amongst us and festive holiday gatherings with family and friends take place. I’ve always asked myself time and time again, why do people tend to be a bit more joyous during the months of November and December than any other times...

My Day At The Polls

UNITED STATES—So perhaps the most important question to be asked this week is rather you went to the polls and voted? Wait, let me take that back, you better had voted. Some parts of the region didn’t have the best weather, it may have rained at a few spots, perhaps a bit chilly in others, but you still should...

Its Over, Hooray!

UNITED STATES—Election Day has come and gone, and I can honestly say I’m ecstatic and it has nothing to do with the voting process either. So what am I celebrating? Well, those pesky advertising campaigns that have been airing for what it seems like eons are no more. Jeez, the commercials that are thrown in our faces from political ads...

Election Day Is Looming

UNITED STATES—Yes people it’s that time of year again, Election Day has arrived and its time to perform our civic duty. For so many of us, we don’t consider the seriousness of being able to vote. For so long, certain individuals were denied their right t o cast a ballot. Others lost their lives or were viciously attacked while attempting...

Trick Or Treat

UNITED STATES—Halloween has come and gone, and now comes the difficult job of shifting through those piles of candy to ensure nothing harmful is injected by your children. I remember when Halloween used to be such a fun day, but nowadays you can never be too careful. People older than the typical ‘trick or treat’ age (I’d say 13 or...

Is America Prepared For An Epidemic?

UNITED STATES—The entire crisis involving the Ebola epidemic that has made its way into the United States has many people on edge. This has concerned so many Americans to the point that you have people discussing not traveling overseas and perhaps putting travel restrictions to those looking to travel to regions where the deadly disease has reached epic proportions.  The larger...

The Bullying Epidemic Grows

UNITED STATES—Just this week I heard two tales about bullying incidents that shook me to the core. In one case a young girl decided to cut off her hair to highlight those fighting for cancer and to donate, the other case a young boy who had a bully stab him in the eye with a pencil.   In both cases,...
