Growing Terrorist Threat In Southeast Asia

We’ve all heard about wars waged by ISIS in the Middle East but it seems that the threat is about to hit Asia hard as these Muslim terrorists have started expanding their caliphate. For almost a month now, the Philippine government is battling the Maute rebels that have pledged allegiance to ISIS in the battleground that is now Marawi in the southern part of the Philippines. It is being led by Isnilon Hapilon, who has a $5-million bounty on the head and included in the US list of most wanted terrorists. Innocent residents of this inland city have been evacuated but some have already fallen along with Philippine soldiers who came to their aid and are in hot pursuit of the local terrorist group.

It’s not ISIS fighters yet who took over the city but it has been a while …

What’s With The Brand

If you look at today’s market, it can get nauseous since probably millions of businesses compete for the public’s purchasing power. Yet regardless of your business, you are nothing without your brand. The market is increasingly becoming competitive, so you need to have an effective brand that people can easily remember and relate to. It is the brand that separates successful and profitable businesses from the ones that don’t make it to the cut. Your brand communicates what the business is about, what you offer, and what sets you apart from the competition.

Your brand mainly talks about your promise to consumers. First and foremost, you need to define your brand before worrying yourself over other aspects of the business. However, you don’t realize it or get the answers in one go. It is more often than not …

It’s Getting Hot In Canada

We all know that weather phenomena differ in various parts of the globe. It can be warm and sunny in one part of the planet and then totally cold and gloomy in another. This weather diversity actually gives more color to our lives but it can be a burden at times too especially with extreme weather conditions. And with climate change in the equation, it has drastically worsened weather systems and made it doubly harder for us to cope. It’s why Green activists encourage everyone to take an active part in environmental conservation efforts because it’s us humans who still suffer from nature’s wrath over time.

Winter has come and gone and spring is almost over too but weather experts are already warning Canadians to brace for the heat of summer. While the cold of winter isn’t something to look …

Ivory Smuggling In Africa

Without a doubt, Africa is one of the richest continents on the planet. There are plants and animal species that can’t be see anywhere else. Have you seen an African savannah? Seeing wild animals roaming freely in their natural habitat can leave anyone in awe. That’s how nature designed these animals to live – not in cages or zoos for the pleasure of mankind. Africa is the perfect home for them with its rich biodiversity that supports the life of many of these wild animals.

But again, man and progress got into the equation. Greed can make people do lots of stupid and reckless things – among these are poaching. In itself, poaching is already damaging because you destroy the natural balance in the wild. Most ecosystems live with their own sense of check-and-balance where the disappearance of a certain

Law Enforcement Vs. Terrorism

Nobody can really tell when the next terror attack will happen next. Terrorists often strike in big cities but there are a few isolated incidents where they don’t. Well, who knows what these radical extremists have in mind. And because of that, we always have to be on our toes to make sure we are always out of harm’s way. Since the public can’t always protect themselves from these twisted people, law enforcers must step in to safeguard the rights of the people and prevent terrorists from further terrorizing them.

Security forces and law enforcement are on heightened alert because terror attacks are happening more frequently now in various places all over the globe. Many people have lost their lives especially on earlier attacks where law enforcement officers weren’t that trained yet to handle such attacks with massive casualties. But …

Get Legally High In Vegas

There are many cool things you can do in Las Vegas, Nevada most of which have to deal with the high-rolling casino, taboo vices, and getting married with no fuss at all. It is a favorite tourist hotspot for travelers who don’t mind getting tipsy (or drunk) all the time and go home broken after a night or two of gambling. You are in “Sin City” after all.

Well, the use of medical marijuana has long since been legal in Nevada and there are even medical dispensaries in the state where one can get their weed fix for health reasons especially if you are above 21 years old.

Even though marijuana …

Mother Nature Suffers With Trump In The Lead

Our world is such in a bad state now. There are pollution and signs of progress wherever you look. People have little regards on their effects to the environment and only a handful speak up to protect nature and everyone else living in it. The funny thing is that we are one of the first to suffer when natural disaster strikes. Climate change is already a reality in our times that it has intensified natural weather phenomenon like hurricanes, flooding, global warming etc. and resulted to the death of many as well as destruction of properties.

Then, there are individuals who are expected to lead their countries and even include environmental protection in the policies they make and push for. Unfortunately, Trump isn’t one of them. Just recently, he signed out of the Paris Climate Agreement joining Syria and Nicaragua. …

Women Tech Genius: Males No Longer Dominate This Industry

When you think of tech-obsessed geeks, you’d often picture out geeky males wearing big glasses hunched over a computer. But as of late, more and more women are showing interest in everything tech-related.

Corruption Is To Blame For The Widespread Poverty In Africa

If only all things were created equal, many won’t have to suffer anymore from typical issues like poverty, unequal school and work opportunities, and access to healthcare while some (the elite) spend money on luxuries regardless of the price tag. If there is one place here on Earth that epitomizes the face of poverty, that would have to be Africa. How many times have you heard/ reprimanded to finish your meal because there are millions of Africans suffering from hunger. It’s true that Africa is one of the poorest places in the planet despite being rich in natural resources.

The truth is corruption is usually the cause for poverty in any nation. Public funds that are supposedly intended for the delivery of basic services go into the pockets of corrupt leaders who are only after of what they can gain …
