Themes

Agriculture, Food, and Nutrition

Naturally, food is a major bare necessity, without which life ceases to exist. Not only is food a necessity of life, but its quality also determines the quality of our life. As all food comes from the soil, whether directly in the form of plant products or indirectly in the form of cattle and poultry that feed on plants, a healthy soil is the way to a healthy life. That is basically why the 68th United Nations General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS).


Education

In today’s world, education and knowledge are still used as a weapon, not only in dominating peoples, or in political and intelligence warfare between competing nations, but more dangerously in creating actual weapons, which also serve the purpose of dominance. To combat the state of utter chaos we find ourselves in these days—politically, socially, and economically—the only way out of this dark tunnel is education.


Environment and Climate Change

We human beings, were put on this impeccable planet, full of life, vibrant with marvelous creatures, each doing its role in an immaculate circle of life, surviving inevitable natural disasters and enduring the change that comes with them. It is amazing, now that we know what we know about humankind’s history on Earth, to realize how mankind had started out on Earth as just another creature. 


Health and the Human Body

We embark on a new journey to explore, and re-explore, the different aspects of human life. The first eternal theme to pop into anyone’s mind in such a journey is without a doubt the closest to home: our own bodies; our health.We have tried to tap into a diversity of health issues that vary from the historic, the cultural, and the controversial, to the current, the challenging, the psychologically damaging, and the potentially devastating.


Human Civilization

Speaking of science and its connotations of development, it is only appropriate to dig deep, to excavate the roots, to search for the beginnings of progress, of the future. Hence, we dig into topics related to human civlizationm and make a point of pinpointing the downsides of all previous rises, which eventually led to their falls. We attempt to open our readers’ eyes to the calamity of ego, greed, and, more dangerously, indifference; simply because we, Mankind, have run out of time and can no longer afford any of these despicable traits that can lead us up to the most glorious of glories, just to let us fall to the most tragic of tragedies.


Energy and Water

Although they seem different, energy and water are often collocated by international organizations and in the media; why is that? In fact, both energy and water are essential to fulfil the basic human needs. Food production, industry, and achieving economic growth are impossible without both. Moreover, energy and water are closely connected and dependent on one another. Water is required in most energy production processes, and energy is essential to make water resources accessible to people for consumption and irrigation. We invite you to read the articles under this topic and explore more about these two valuable resources.


Technology and Inventions

Humans lived for millennia without the luxury of supreme technology we have today. However, they have always sought the tools that can make their life easier, using the simplest materials available. With the application of technology, time-consuming processes can be executed with ease and in less time; technological development has thus never stopped, and will never stop to evolve and reinvent itself.
