Fall In Love With People Power – How Working Together Can Change The World

Sometimes it hard to think that we can make a difference in this world. You might think ‘I am just one person, what can I do?’ But you need to remember that change comes from all those single people banding together and working towards a goal. People power can change your hometown, your country, and the world! Social Media With the advent of social media, we have seen some first-hand examples of how people power can make a difference in the world. Bill Byerley used Facebook to track down his missing grandparents, and barely a day go past when we don’t see an appeal to help someone. Image Source Social media is good for connecting people and encouraging the to take action. Social media also helps to combat the problem of compression fatigue. This is when you see all the awful stories on the news but feel helpless to do anything for the people that are suffering because they are so far away. Social media shrinks our world. It makes it just as easy to help someone on the other side of the planet as it would be to help your next door neighbor. Class action suits In the legal world, class action suits are another great example of how people power can make a difference. Class actions are when a group of people that have been affected by the same issue club together and sue a person or organization. Their cases together often make a much more powerful testimony than if presented individually. A famous class action includes the Exxon Valdez case. When the Exxon Valdez oil tanker...

Are You a Stressed Student? This Article Can Help

Students seem to have it tougher and tougher every year. Stress levels amongst students are definitely on the rise. You may think that’s pretty natural and not such a big issue but stress affects your health in adverse ways. It can also negatively affect your academic performance.

But this isn’t just the result of “kids being kids”, the way many adults try to portray it. As easy as it is for me to say “eat more healthily”, the reason that most students eat junk food is in order to save money! It’s why so many students live on budget noodles and not much else. But you should remember that eating junk food can negatively affect your mood and concentration. Research some cheap and healthy recipes. Oh – and get some exercise!

3 Ways to Boost Your College Savings

For many nations, higher education has now become an expensive option rather than a necessity, as the cost of tuition in many colleges and university has surpassed the financial resources of many students and families. The majority of students rely on student loans to get by while at university, even though they are unsure if they can really pay it off in the future. According to experts, there’s been a 6% increase in college tuition, which is above the rate of inflation. Whilst there are ways to cut down the costs of college tuition, many are forced to give up their dreams of gaining a degree because they simply cannot afford it. Apart from the cost of college, students also have living costs which means they can rack up debts quickly. Is there a way to increase your college saving funds?

Some consider repaying their debts immediately after graduation, so they can focus on saving money for their retirement. “Paying off the smallest loan first allows you to...

Ballet Manila Mounts Revenge of the Classics

Revenge of the Classics – this is Ballet Manila’s 21st Performance Season which will revisit timeless tales as told through dance. Classics have laid down the foundation of every other ballet production. No one performs it more truthfully to its original form than the performers of Ballet Manila. “Nothing beats the classics. There’s something about classical tales and pieces that is just so magical that they stay in your memory forever,” shares Prima Ballerina and Ballet Manila’s Artistic Director and CEO, Lisa Macuja-Elizalde. “Technically speaking, you can’t cheat when you’re doing the classics; there’s just no way. Revenge of the Classics invokes the same spirit that guided us when we founded the company in 1995. My Russian mentor, Tatiana Udalenkova, often reminded me that every season should have a classical production because it is in doing the classics that the company becomes strong. Our 21st season will showcase the power and grace that enable our ballerinas and danseurs to perform these extremely difficult classical ballet roles.” Ballet Manila’s 21st Performance Season Offerings Rebel: EDSA 30 Rebel: EDSA 30 will open the new season on August 19.

The Path to Financial Freedom

The path to financial freedom is neither straight nor uneventful. In fact, it can be a roller coaster ride of successes and failures. So how do we make sure that we get to our desired point of financial wellness? The financial journal “My Path to Financial Freedom” contained in this Avida Land planner offers important advise to those who are serious in getting there. Why serious? Because attaining financial freedom requires wisdom, temperance, and hard work, nothing less. It seems that one has to be deadly serious about intentions and actions in order to laugh one’s way to the bank. Let me share some tips I got from this journal. Tips to Attain Financial Freedom Determine Your Financial Condition Determine your real financial condition. List your assets and liabilities, income and expenses, as well as short-term and long-term goals. Your net worth or what is actually yours is computed by deducting total liabilities from total assets. Net cash flow is derived from deducting total expenses from total income. The result provides an idea as to how capable you are in funding future needs. By knowing exactly where you are, you can then set your financial goals. Set Financial Goals Financial goal is the prize you can set your eyes on as you work your way towards it. Stay focused and unwavering especially during the most difficult and trying stages. It is highly recommended to create visual reminders of your goals such as pictures that provides happy feeling instead of the difficulties in sacrifice. Start with a Plan The path to financial freedom starts with a plan which should be...
