There are some secrets that people don’t know about it. “How can a medical student understand the anatomy and physiology if there are limited resources?” The fact is medical students in college or university need to learn beyond the usage of medical textbooks.

The old medical students had no choice but to kill cats in learning the principles of anatomy and physiology. This is an old secret that people don’t know. It is also violated the animal rights. The people who advocate for this right cannot able to stop the medical students. It is also like rats that being a subject for experiments.

Facts: What is Childhood Stress?

Some parents cannot understand their children’s behavior, especially at the primary level. It wasn’t because the child is becoming misbehaving in the house or disobeying the parents. The main reason is the external or internal factors that contribute to childhood stress. Parenting is the tough thing to do in raising a child. Though they need to understand why their child is so stressed out.

Children are also like the adult ones. They experience stress from school, environment and even in the house. Stressors need to identify before judging the child. It wasn’t because they are under the spell of tantrum episodes. It affects their ability to think when being pressured from stressors.

That’s the reason why parents need to understand that children can be stressed out. They need to balance of being strict to their children. In some occasions, children are manifesting rebellious acts because they were not being heard by the adults. Parents should know how to reach out and listen to the child’s sentiments.

There are some parents insensitive to the needs of their children emotionally. In most cases, parents are only physically present to the children’s needs such as providing the tuition fees at school, daily allowances, clothes, food, etc. These are not enough to support child’s needs.

The emotional needs go along with providing some good advice such as the needs of accomplishing something at school, people that affect their lives, insecurities of something or someone, knowing what puzzled them, etc. It is a two-way process of learning between being a parent and a child. Parents can learn from their children and vice-versa.

This concern is not also limited to the parents. It should be learned by the teachers in school. Since the children are being catered by the teachers all throughout their lives. It is a not perfect world both parents and teachers should work together to boost the confidence of a child to face stressors. It will build their way of dealing with the stressors that affect them.

Saying the “H” Word: Hitler

Fortunately for me I’m not a politician. So it’s perfectly fine for me to choose Hitler as a topic for discussion. Whenever a politician mentions this man, it doesn’t matter what they were trying to communicate, the message gets lost because the only word anybody hears is the “H” word. Hitler! His name is almost like a cuss word to so many people. At least, it’s that way in the western world. Not sure if the non-western world has a different point of view about the man.


Adolph Hitler is by far one of the most notorious political leaders in the history of mankind.

Ya think? How could you not think that? Have you any idea how many different documentaries about this man have been televised? That’s just the documentaries. Add in the dramatizations or movies. Between Hitler and Henry VIII, you could be tempted to believe they are only two infamous cruel historical figures that ever existed.


Oh well! Might as well jump on the Hitler bandwagon and do a quick write-up on this bad guy who people can’t seem to get enough of.


Adolph (or Adolf) Hitler (1889 -1945)

* * *

Hitler quotes:

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”


Certainly sounds like the type of chap you want as your next door neighbor.  Ya think?
* * *

  • Born in Austria
  • Moved to Munich in his early 20s
  • Soldier in the German army during World War I
  • Hated Jews so much he wrote a book about it!
  • Believed his “theory” about racial superiority was TRUE!
  • Appointed chancellor of Germany in 1933
  • Became Führer of the Third Reich * in 1934
  • Provoked World War II
  • His own men tried to assassinate him (Of course, that was just a movie: “Valkyrie”.  Or was it?)


Took his own life – committed suicide when Berlin fell to the Russians

(That’s what “they” say.  I would prefer confirmation.  What really happened on April 30, 1945?)

Social problems faced by women
April 25, 2017

Women of today’s generation are facing a lot of problems, both physically and mentally in their day to day lives. If we look at the statistics we can see that these problems are increasing at a steady pace in recent four to five years. Men alone cannot be solely blamed for all the problems as women of today’s young generation too are to be blamed. But, it is time to improve and protect every girl child and stop them from getting harmed in the clutches of some evil people in our society. Let’s take action together. So, here I am highlighting some major problems faced by our present women community.


Women education has been improved compared to the past decades. Even though a lot of women are still fighting to get their primary education, many are fighting for their higher education. All over the world most of the women, especially in villages, are not aware of the value and importance of education. It is said that educating a girl child is similar to educating a family, in turn, educating the nation.

Child marriage:

Most of the NGOs’ and the government are constantly raising their voice against child marriage. But, still, there are so many child marriages happening all over the world. It is very common among the uneducated parents on the village side. They fail to acknowledge the problems of the child (girl child) which she faces after getting married at a very tender age. This has to be stopped or at least reduced by taking necessary actions.

Dowry or bribe:

Dowry or the bribe giving is a never ending problem. There are so many rules and regulations available out there in the name of protecting the women. But, still, a number of women are suffering from this dowry and bribe torture in our society. I see some men who marry a girl only for the dowry and not for the life and love. They see women as their profit and a money machine.

Sexual harassment:

According to a result of WHO, 1 in every 3 women is experiencing sexual violence in their life. Daily in the day to day life, there are so many women out there facing sexual problems in schools and workplaces. Most of us see or read at least one news daily about a woman or a girl being sexual harassed. With so many regulations and acts of the government, the rate is increasing day by day. Parents on seeing and hearing these they are afraid of sending their girl child out.

Employment opportunities:

Everybody talks about women empowerment and equality but when it comes to employing a candidate everybody wants a male candidate. Even if a girl gets selected for a job either she will get a lower salary than a male candidate of the same designation or she will be ill-treated. Being a civil engineer and a girl, having a good knowledge in my field despite, these most companies rejected me because of my gender.

Are all these fair? Absolutely no. We can’t change all the problems in a single day. But with a good heart, we can stand together and do something in empowering our women.

First, determine the target or list of participants. Second, send invitation trough emails or notice letter in every department of the company. Third, acquiring the needed materials such as photocopied of modules, equipment, soft copies of the powerpoint presentation, etc. Lastly, set up the venue of the activity.

Once accomplished the physical requirements mentioned earlier, then it is time to follow the simple steps in conducting the skills training are as follows:

  1. State the main topic

The outline should be presented prior to giving the full details of it. The participants can able to anticipate which subtopics will be tackled. It is the core of the presentation and participants will have the idea of the training session.

  1. Provide the information

In this part, the full detailed information will be able to deliver. It can be presented through power presentation, photos, actual usage of products and the like. It depends on the host’s style. The most important thing is to give the essential information needed by the participants.

  1. Entertain the issues or concerns

At the end of the training, the host will raise the open dialogue to gather the issues or concerns that needed to be addressed by the host.
