Remember, Remember, the 5th of November By Louise (LlamaLlamaDuck) In most parts of the world, November 5th is no different from any other day. In the UK, however, it is a night celebrated with parties, bonfires, and fireworks. It is much like the 4th of July in America but on a smaller scale. Known as Bonfire Night, Fireworks Night, or Guy Fawkes Night, it is commemorated across the UK every year. It all began courtesy to the man known as Guy Fawkes. Originally from York in England,...

The Troubles in Northern Ireland By Gareth (Catharsis.) Northern Ireland has endured a history of political and social instability. As a disputed constituent country of the United Kingdom, ordinary residents of Ulster have long lived in everyday fear. The worst stretch of violence that ever occurred in Ulster is known as "The Troubles". Two factions decided that enough was enough, and took to violent measures to profess their loyalty to either the Crown, or the Irish freedom fight. Widely...

The Armenian Genocide By Jenna (.:BreakingBeautifully:.) In April of 1915 the Ottoman Empire launched a methodical attack on its Armenian population which resulted in the death of a million and a half Armenians. These persecutions would continue with varying levels of intensity until 1923 when the Ottoman Empire came to an end and was replaced by the Republic of Turkey. The Ottoman Empire was ruled by Turks who practiced Islam; the Armenians were Christian which made them a minority. Due to...

Through distorted lenses By Casey (Casey.) Stereotypes. We all hold some form of them in our minds. Everyone stereotypes others, even those who claim they do not. Sometimes these stereotypes influence how we see the world and how we react to things that do not fit these stereotypes. Recently, in the news, there was a child whose parents refuse to tell anyone whether the child was a boy or a girl. They decided to let the child grow without being forced into the molds of gender roles and...

Know Your World: Iran By Casey (Casey.) Most of us learn about our own nations in school, but usually there is little time or energy placed into knowing the world around us. The world is a magnificent place, with almost two hundred nations. We hear about some of these nations on the news every day, especially right now with the turmoil in the Middle East,but what do we actually know about these countries and the people who live there? The Islamic Republic of Iran, or simply Iran, is a...

Be the Change by Casey (Casey.) Clean water. It's not something we often think about as we brush our teeth and take showers. Often, we don't even consider our luck as we drink a glass or bottle of it. We take these luxuries for granted, and many of us do not realize how blessed we really are. After all, we have food, shelter, and clean, safe drinking water. Unfortunately, many are not so lucky. Over a billion people go without these basics everyday. Even clean drinking water is a commodity...

Copiapó Mining Accident By Casey (Casey.) You're trapped underground with little food or water. The world believes that you are dead. It sounds like a nightmare, but for thirty-three miners in Chile, it was reality when the San José copper-gold mine collapsed on August 5th 2010 near Copiapó in northern Chile. Chile worked for weeks to reach the trapped men below, not knowing for two weeks if they were dead or alive. But on August 22nd the drill, which had reached the men in their...

Terrorism by Casey (Casey.) Terrorism. It's a term we hear often, and many of us associate it with a specific event, such as the London train bombings or the collapse of the Twin Towers. Some associate terrorism with a certain group of people or religion, but terrorism isn't really a religious thing. Recently, it made the news world-wide, when a pastor in Florida declared that he was going to burn the Qur’an, because, besides the fact that he found Islam to be evil and full of lies, to him...
