Does education make us respectful?

I have been noticing that many students are disrespectful to their teachers, their fellow students, to their parents, to their community at large. Bullying in schools is a known phenomenon that has been studied and restudies, but still, there is no cure, as it continued for centuries. Also, once we leave our schools, we continue […]

A Path to Becoming a Dentist

Dentistry comes from the French word Dent (meaning tooth), and it’s the study of how to give a person a perfect smile.  If we want to have the biggest nightmare in our lives then we must leave our teeth without a checkup. A toothache is one of the worst aches, ask me about it, as […]

Many students choose a course on the basis of peer pressure, parents pressure, self-illusions of thinking that one likes to do […]

How artistic are you?

I have always put the artists on a higher pedestal than us, enjoyed their paintings, sculptures and even their absurd installations, videos and the shapes that they do to make us understand the world, or at least see it from their perspective which is at the end of the day a better perspective. I have […]
