Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
As some of you know, I got a letter in the mail that I made the Dean's list at school last semester. I did think it was cool and all, but I also don't see the big deal. All it is is a piece of paper and my name on the school website. Now "the bar has been set" as my academic adviser put it.
I have also become addicted to Game of Thrones. This is seriously the best show I have seen in a very long time. I love the dire wolves. I have finished with the first season and I'm…Continue

I am approximately 2 months away from graduation at a college in Philadelphia (originally from Connecticut). I have completed college in 3 years (a major goal of mine) and now I am looking back at my time here. There is a lot of debate on whether people should go to college…Continue
Well I got my ethics final graded and it was a 95%. I ended up with a 94% in the class overall. In short, two classes, two A's. I am certainly glad the semester is over as it was very stressful at times. I'm thinking about quitting my job after summer and just going back to school full time so I can get my degree and start my illustrious career doing menial work for piss poor pay.
I do qualify for grants now so it will cover my tuition and books so that is quite nice. For the…Continue

I have had this discussion with my brother in the past and I would like others to jump in. How do you define a hero?
I originally came to this question after constantly hearing that soldiers, police officers, etc are heroes. Not a specific statement just generalizations made to those professions. It always made me a little upset because I never…Continue
If you get that reference I will love you forever, at least until you get on my bad side, then I will find you and hurt you. Any who!
I am impatiently awaiting my final grade in my English class. If it is anything less than an A I am going to challenge it. I do suspect that my professor did not take too kindly to me slamming patriotism as something I was toying with as a topic. I do know that after I I had mentioned that as a possibility my grade started to slip a bit. I end…Continue
Shiznit recently posed some controversial questions about killing and remorse,
so, this an attempt to rationalize just cause & means to develop a national sense of ethics on public executions.
I would be interested in exploring the ethics of establishing the due process and the regulations of instituting a national recall and referendum that would result in public humiliation and/OR execution.
At what point does a nation of law…Continue

Are we living in the greatest period of existence?
I have pondered this question many times. I start to think back in the past 250 years (essentially since the formation of the USA) and then I go a little forward to maybe the past 100 years. To me it is remarkable about how fast society has advanced in such a short amount of time. Sure those things like the wheel and fire were all good, but to me I feel that these past 100-250 years have moved our species…Continue
This post is actually a very long comment that I constructed in response to a recent discussion thread on the site titled, "Is there an action that is not driven by selfishness?" And I decided to turn it into a separate post of my own.
My comments and answer to the above-mentioned post & question are as…Continue
A lot has happened since my last blog post. I continue to do well on my ethics papers as so far I have eight papers graded and all of them are perfect 10/10's. I am also slaughtering my English class with a 97%, but I expect that from myself. I am an English major after all.
I know in a previous blog I had mentioned that I was torn between English and paralegal as a major because of what they both had to offer. English for writing (passion), or paralegal (practicality) for…Continue

I am at a major crossroad in my life as I have some important decisions to make in regards to what I am going to do for a living. I'm currently an English major and I would like to use this to write for a living. Writing has been a passion of mine for a very long time and it has helped me through some very rough times in my life. However, I have also considered a career in paralegal because I think it would be more practical and something to fall back on if my writing career doesn't work…Continue
I´ve been thinking a lot about this topic recently, as I, like nearly every other human on this planet, have been procrastinating way too much on what I do.
This procrastination has been going on and on and on, and it seems to be something that seems to be limiting me in my goals, and my happiness. Especially because I´m the kind of person that feels bad if I don´t do something or do something wrong...
If you really think about procrastination, and why it…
Well, midterm has come and gone and I'm doing quite well. I ended up getting an A on my network neutrality informative essay and my overall grade for the English class at midterm was 97%. Going into my ethics midterm I had a 100% with four 10/10 papers. I ended up getting an 88% on the midterm and now I'm getting a 91% in that class.
I was originally going to do my persuasive essay on the dangers of patriotism but when we came back from spring break my English professor…Continue

Hi, I'm Tamir, I'm a bit embarrassed to say this, but I totally forgot what this place was. I signed up to 'I power' a few months ago, not really knowing what it was for, and was so busy doing other things, 'I power' completely slipped my mind.
I just saw the "Who and What" video and almost started kicking myself. I LOVE "Athene's theory of everything". A friend pointed it out to me after reading one of my posts, which reminded him of that video (…Continue

This question might be hard to find an answer to, so i made a checklist, and did a thorough (it's a bit of a stretch of the word) analysis of my environment, and the state. I did this to see, if the people that's been making the laws, can be said to be true representations of the people.
A supreme example of "thinking outside the box". I posted about this boy back in 2011 and said that we were all going to be amazed at the things he comes up with; and I still believe it.
