Rising death tolls in Israel and Palestine are in the media spotlight. But how balanced is that media coverage? This analysis explores that question.
When I feel my children are getting too complacent about the easy blessings of life (even in a pandemic there are many), I sometimes remind them about the children of Palestine. And then together we wonder what the children in Palestine are doing. This is the lunar month of Ramadan, an occasion for month-long spiritual […]
Kim Kardashian, not a stranger to controversy, set out to break the internet in 2014 with a photo splattered over the cover of Paper magazine. Renowned French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, who took the photograph for the cover, created a sensationalist post that looked oddly similar to a popular photo of Sarah “Saartjie” Baartman. Many thought […]
Times are riddled with polarities, sometimes to the point of extremism. Be it the Capitol Riots, the killing of innocent Black citizens by the police, or the cleaning up of hedge fund billions by a bunch of Redditors… We are repeatedly seeing awkward, uncomfortable friction, clashes, and acting out by different segments of society against […]
One of the worst chapters in the history of politics took place on 6th January 2021. A congressional session was in place to confirm Joe Biden’s victory in the recent Presidential Elections when right-wing extremists stormed the Capitol Building.

On nearly every line, green-colored signs embellish New York City train cars, each urging the public to “Save a life. Carry naloxone.” Other signs offer well-intentioned advice, such as “Avoid using alone!” and “The best way to prevent an overdose is to not use drugs”. Each of these public service announcements is aimed towards combating […]
Months before the 2020 election, public outcries to vote for healthcare ran rampant across social media outlets. Here’s the catch: we did vote for healthcare but we also didn’t. If you were among those who voted take a minute to ask yourself this: how much did a candidate’s position on healthcare policy weigh into where […]
Due to recent events, social ills like political radicalism and racial discrimination have dominated the news cycle, temporarily obscuring other urgent problems that still fester in society, even more so with a pandemic raging on. One of these problems is that of gender inequality and the related issues of sexism and misogyny. Gender inequality is […]
A small but growing number of COVID patients are trapped in limbo. They’ve been released from the hospital, they’ve tested negative, they’ve gone back to work – but they still can’t breathe. The smallest tasks exhaust them, their heads and joints ache, and there’s no medical diagnosis that seems to explain it. Welcome to the hell that […]
Progress happens through novel discourses. Black Lives Matter has revealed an age of moral awakening where the ‘woke’ generations have assumed avenues to bring about change. Social movements take center stage when it comes to mass social action through the collective opinions of communities. However, beyond the enormous contributions of the Black Lives Matter movement […]
The word “alien” typically conjures up images of glowing, green creatures in otherworldly spaceships. Maybe even Steven Spielberg’s E.T. What seldom comes to mind are images of women fleeing violence, rape, and gang threats, in hopes of a safer life across the border.
