People come and people go. Like you came out in this world alone, you die alone. But it doesn`t mean that you just sit in the edge of the corner and let yourself be drowned in the world of loneliness. That`s why God created Eve for Adan to have someone to be with. Don`t say that you want to be an old-maid all your life. Sometimes it`s better to share your success with someone when you got promoted in your job. Someone to listen when you’re sad or complain about your boss. Someone to lean on when you’re crying. Someone to lift you up when you’re down. Someone who say everything will alright in your hard problematic day. Someone to carry you when you hit badly your toe due to

Discrimination: Making People Better
The fear of the unknown causes people to inflict pain and hatred rather than try to understand. They discriminate or prejudge others on the basis of their ethnicity, race, sex or handicap. This treatment often results in victims being ostracized from society. It is assumed that such hardship can make people bitter and full of resentment. However, Georgina Kleege disproves this in her essay “Call It Blindness.” She shows that her personal struggle against discrimination has made her better, because it pushes her to open people’s narrow-minded views, break down societal stereotypes, and inspire those with similar challenges.
As a handicap, there are

Living in a small town is the best option anyone can choose whose wanting to settle down in a loving and welcoming community. It’s easy to get around since it’s less traffic and people, easier to meet, notice and actually remember people, and it’s a lot safer and peaceful. This is so much better than living in a big city where it’s the total opposite.
Everything’s in close proximity, and less time is taken to get there. The businesses are close by, local stores are right down the street from where you live, schools are in an appropriate distance, everything’s just so simple to get to that it’s no way possible for you ever to get lost.

Uniforms are better
An ongoing controversy in American Education is school uniforms. Proponents argue that school uniforms encourage discipline, help students resist peer pressure to buy trendy clothes, help identify intruders in school, diminish economic and social barriers between students, and increase a sense of belonging and school pride. On the other hand, the opponents contend believe school uniforms violate the right to freedom of expression, make students a target for bullies from other schools, are a financial burden for poor families, and are difficult to enforce in public schools. Mark Twain once remarked, “Clothes make the man.” Can school clothes really make you change

Yet it seems to be a trend that once people realize that they have surpassed someone else in social standing, a certain air of smugness seems to fall upon them, whether they want it to or not (and most do). Why does this happen? It happens because people, Americans especially, have been conditioned since they were young to always get the best and newest things available; the better their possessions, the better their person.

Better Days to Come
In a perfect world, discrimination and racism would not exist, but unfortunately the world we live in is far from perfect. Society, whether they mean to or not, still heavily places stereotypes on different religions, races, and ethnic groups. The media in particular does so through television shows and movies. Feminist writer Dorothy Roberts argues that African American women are portrayed in such a poor manor. One example of a show I can think of that supports her argument is Orange is the New Black. There are many parts of the show which one may argue is a negative depiction of African American women. I do not personally agree with Robertsâ€™ argument for media and

An Ideal Human Rights Treaty
Human right treaties if ratified, should be effective in protecting human rights and by doing that they should improve human lives. But in reality they are not effective. One of the biggest problems with human rights treaties is that they have no enforcing and neither executive power. Even upon ratification, it is up to the ratifying states if they implement the treaty in their national legislation and be bound by the responsibility to uphold them. The best examples are treaties that relate to women and childrenâ€™s rights. Although almost all countries have ratified the Convention on the Elimination of

Prevention is better than Cure
Prevention implies 'to stop doing something'. Cure means 'to find a solution'. Man is prone to commit mistakes. Prevention is the shield which saves mankind from many disasters, chaos and destruction. Man can foresee the happenings of the future. He checks himself from doing anything wrong.
We must measure very step we take. Cure involves much more effort and pain than what would needed to prevent a problem from affecting us. A cure is a blessing, but prevention is more than a blessing. It is better than cure. A wise act of cautious mind can check us from stepping into something wrong or dangerous. The act of right living makes everything possible. Living

Better Education with School Uniforms The use of uniforms in public schools is an interesting and controversial topic. It is believed that uniforms help decrease violence, maintain discipline in the schools, and enhance the student’s performance. I had the opportunity to talk with several teachers and hear their different points of view regarding the use of school uniforms; I also asked some parents for their point of view. The majority of parents and teachers agree that uniforms would greatly contribute to the solution.

Colour is known as the ‘fill’ of objects, environment and even the skin of some people around us. It is defined as a visual sensation differing with wavelengths which results from the light that they may emit or transmit. My question is; ‘which is the better colour out of black or white?’ Black may not be considered a colour while white might and vice versa; however the attractiveness and appeal of these two ‘colours’ to those who perceive it is my main focus.

The CFO possesses many significant advantages as well as disadvantages if he/she is chosen to become the CEO.
Recently an increasing number of company boards have decided that in order to best serve shareholders it is prudent to promote the CFO to CEO. CFOs themselves remain reticent about any personal ambitions beyond the CFO role - at least in public. But given this recent string of high profile promotions there is an increasing recognition that they have what it takes to take over the CEO role. To understand why CFOs are more frequently getting the top job it is important to know what the contemporary holder of the post does with his time

Women are better drivers than men.
For many years there have been multiple arguments and disagreements on whether men are better drivers than women. However driving is not all about driving a car. How often do you hear that a man is the driving force of his home or his family? You don’t, because it is a woman’s roll to be the driver of her home and family. A woman is what makes a home a home and without a woman a man would be lost. Women are better drivers of their home, family, career and their own destiny.
Without a woman a man would be lost and he would create a dysfunctional household. Therefore this goes to show that women are the drivers of both their homes and families

Here's how to begin a presentation so that your audience really sits up and takes notice.

No matter the scale of the conflicts that occur in our world, people, whether directly involved or not, are always changed for the better. A famous example of how conflict changed people occurred in World War Two, where the Japanese soldiers captured many women and children from Singapore.

The film, ‘Paradise Road’ told the historical story of these women, whose growth through experiences of conflict changed them for the

Regardless of Egyptians wealth, they all expected the afterlife to be a better version of their earthly existence. Egyptian religion was based on polytheism, or the worship of many deities.

Children's behavior has been the topic of discussion throughout the years due to its ever growing difference from one generation to another. But is this for better or for worse. Did it improve from the previous generation or has it deteriorated as time goes by. In my opinion, it is the latter. All these are due to various explainable factors and this deterioration of behavior can also be considered a side effect of our ever advancing world.

Does eating healthy really need to be more expensive? As Pollan aptly stated, “There’s no escaping the fact that better food — measured by taste or nutritional quality (which often correspond) — costs more, because it has been grown or raised less intensively and with more care(Pollan).” While I do agree with Pollan’s statement part of me is left ruminating, are there actions that can be taken to ease the financial sting attributed to eating healthy? Many recent studies are projecting the percent of Americans that suffer from some level
