Positivity breeds goodness

I appreciate that social media allows more people the ability to publish their views and opinions, however this should not be an excuse for bad behaviour. Surely, it is even more important to be polite, thoughtful and kind at every opportunity, which as you are often allowed direct access others on a close level of intimacy.

My parents always reminded us as children, of the simple motto "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". It may seem basic but it is still meaningful in the workplace, home and social areas of our lives.

Yesterday, I was disappointed to see what I can only describe as 'poisonous' statements about the late Muhammad Ali. Personally, I felt this was inexcusable to attack someone who is deceased, and unable to defend their reputation. However, this is more than just that as I always see no victory in a situation where an opponent is disadvantaged in some way. Clearly, the situation is a no win, so to me there serves no point!

It also concerns me that so many people seemingly have some negativity at their core. Clearly, life is very stressful and challenging nowadays; however this is still no excuse to attack others or indeed to misbehave wherever you are.

We have choices in life, and certainly choosing to remain positive is one that we all have the option of taking. However, positivity is contagious and may cancel negativity without effort.

Robots versus Humans - Who will seize Victory?

It may seem like a robot rebellion is a bit farfetched at this moment in time, if you gauge the current technology. Still, while the walking, talking 'tin head' is still a long way off, there are many uses of robotic technology in place today. Two examples are driverless cars and prosthetic limbs. While the former threatens to take millions of jobs from the market, you could argue the latter promises to return amputees to the jobs market. But could either machine kill or injure humans?

Why Endangered Animals are Important to the Ecosystem

There is no doubt that all the structures on this planet connect and interact with each other to maintain a subtle balance and order. Although many scientists do consider this paramount, equally many people within our populations fail to consider why endangered animals are important to the ecosystem. 

It іѕ lіkеlу аn ecosystem with multiple species іѕ more ѕtаblе thаn one that has lost several species, particularly keystone species which are pillars of the whole ecosystem.

Are Food and Health Close Relatives?

Nutrition advice is hard to get away from in this day and age. However, with so many fad diets and conflicting opinions, which nutrition tips can be trusted? Is there a strict dietary regime supported by scientific hard data that we should all be following to live the fullest life we can? Or is nutrition inconsequential compared to other lifestyle choices such as exercise and lack of stress? Let’s take a non-biased look at food’s effect on the body and consider just how much the two are linked.
