Our world is fast becoming a materialistic world. Capitalists take advantage of retail therapy to make lots of profits. These businesses build a need for people to acquire more stuff so they end up buying things they don’t actually need but actually looked pretty cool in the mall. And kids grow up in this capitalist culture full of me, me and me. We all become too engrossed with our needs that we forget to think of others.
As adults, we need to teach the importance of giving and sharing our blessings with the less fortunate. A child that knows how to give understands that not everyone enjoys the same lifestyle as them and that others have to struggle to earn money for basic needs like food, clothing and shelter, something that others take for granted. When kids know how to share, they realize that they have the power of uplifting the lives of others and making a difference in this world.
Many parents want their children to grow up to be philanthropic.
The hard part is knowing when—and how—to start instilling a sense of philanthropy in them.

We all aspire to travel the world. Although it remains to be a dream for many, there are some individuals who really defy all the odds and go after their wanderlust. Many people can’t wait to travel to tropical dream destinations with its to-die-for beaches. However, if you don’t want to go far or break the bank, you can travel interstate because the U.S. is full of amazing natural or manmade attractions that can likewise satisfy your urge to travel.
While many visitors are locals, a big number are still foreign tourists who are dying to see all the amazing places in America that have often been featured in the movies or popular TV shows. But U.S. tourism is now suffering a major slump as the string of travel bans has limited the number of tourists who can freely come in and out of the country for leisure. People are often choosing Canada, and cities like Montreal, which have their own amazing amenities. As a result, the U.S. tourism is hurting and the industries relying on tourists in making money are also suffering. His intentions may be good but it seems that they forgot to look into all possible consequences …
Wherever you are in the world, people have high regards to the U.S. and Europe in all aspects, whether in the economy, politics, and opportunities. People, and some news sites fondly call these places as the land of greener pasture and it is true in a lot of ways. However, the economy of these countries has greatly suffered over the years but they still manage to emerge as first world countries and superpower in the field of global politics.
The U.S. often comes to mind when we think of a superpower and America has shown the world it really is throughout the years. Europe came in second but still a superpower in its own right, according to some political groups. However, the world is not blind to the fast growth of the Chinese economy with India not to be left behind. You’d be surprised at how much other countries rely on China on a lot of things.

Modern work can be stressful for many. In any workplace, competition is tough because many are looking for jobs but only a few get hired. So, workers need to be always on their toes if they want to keep their job or risk getting sacked several months later. Moreover, the use of various technologies can also be challenging for any new worker as they have to learn so many things at once to be able to function as expected at work, which is not always an easy thing to do.
Co-workers may be silently waiting for you to make a mistake to make you look bad in front of the boss. All these things make work life even more taxing. Work metrics are even more ridiculous than ever. How can average Joe fit in and do his/ her job properly through it all?

Psychological disorders, which include depression, severe anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many others, are a worldwide issue that cut across every sector of society. Anyone can be affected by these disorders, regardless of sex, age,
Most Windows users have probably already made the upgrade to a Windows 10 OS right now since Microsoft has been relentless in promoting for its upgrade for quite some time. If you’re a fan of the Windows 7 and has stuck with it through the years and didn’t really like Windows 8, then the Windows 10 is good news for you because it’s highly similar to Windows 7 but better. While upgrading to a new operating system brings with it the discomfort of dealing with flaws that Microsoft hasn’t been able to polish just yet, being able to upgrade to it for free is something you’d likely be thankful for much later.
Even if you came from a Windows 7 PC, the transition won’t be that difficult and navigating its new interface will be a walk in the park for many. It is user-friendly and starts up is faster too. And most of all is that is has better security features with the Secure Boot from Windows 8, among others. Ah, the perks of modern and upgraded technology. But wait, there’s more.
Of course, Microsoft – like Apple and Google – would like everyone to use the latest version
America is known as the land of the free and the home of the brave. But over the years, the failing economy and high unemployment rate drove people into homelessness and even more social problems. A big number of the population now relies on federal grants to subsist on their day-to-day as opportunities in finding work or other opportunities to earn an income so they can support themselves and their families continue to elude them.
The government provides basic services to its people especially to the ones who can’t afford to pay for it themselves. But when President Trump assumed office, he made it known to everyone about the various budget cuts that will take place on services he does not consider as important to nation building and in fulfilling his promise of making American great again.
In Vista, a slice of federal grant money helps run a shelter for homeless families. In Escondido, similar funds help feed shut-in seniors. In Oceanside, some of the cash goes toward after-school programs for children vulnerable to sliding into delinquency or dropping out of school.
The federal money — called Community Development Block Grants — is channeled through cities, often
