The MENA (Middle Eastern North African) community has and is still being kept in the shadows. We are a community full of Arabs, our cultures are rich and vary from Morocco all the way to Egypt. However, as a member of this community, I realize the lack of representation in the surveys and other data collecting forms.
In this article, I’ll be talking about our recognition as a race in North America.
Turning on the power button of your remote control and flipping to the news channel usually has clips of the effects of climate change and its deterioration on our planet. Some choose to ignore these environmental issues since it seems near impossible to reverse the damage we’ve already evoked. But what if we could capture one of the most prevalent and abundant greenhouse gases that is contributing to global warming?
CO2 (or carbon dioxide) is a natural gas that allows sunlight to reach the earth. How so? Well, let’s take a look at the diagram below first:
We can see…
Cancer. No one likes to let the thought of having cancer seep into their brain. But this is the sad reality of many women who have breast cancer! In fact, in Canada, it represents over 25% of all new cancer cases in women (from 2020).
Though having breast cancer is already pivoting on its own, women are facing a new set of challenges:
Imagine hearing the bad news that you have breast cancer, only to figure out a few months later that it was benign! (non-cancerous)
This is a major problem, since the high cost of treatments, deteriorated…
You wake up after a long day from your 9–5 job and look out the window. Suddenly, you stare out of your apartment window and see walking computers controlled by Artificial Intelligence, cloned humans, and homicide after homicide.
That was of course just a story, albeit one that many have when they think of separating ethics from science–a dystopian world where power lies in the push of a syringe!
Every day of your life is constantly controlled and micromanaged by cloned humans, you have to take pills to reduce the chances of disease, your name has been eradicated and replaced…
Pollution. Waste. Carbon dioxide intake. Contamination. Global warming.
What do all these words have in common?
Solar panels promise to reduce all of them!
(Well, at a 15–20% efficiency rate…)
Wait a second!
Yup, I hear you! Solar panels, one of the most renewable and eco-friendly source of energy that your neighbor constantly brags for having, are not as efficient as you might think. Now, I’m not trying to discourage you from buying them, they’re a great alternative to using electricity that burns up fossil fuels! And I’m not the only one that thinks that:
It’s no secret that climate change is creating disastrous consequences on our planet. From melting icebergs to being a contributor to the world’s biggest disasters, climate change is a key factor in making our planet literal flames.
But these factors are many that we already see on news channels. However, there’s one aspect that people seem to overlook (at least until it comes to the point of a pandemic).
Global warming is synonymous with excessive heat. So more widespread climate change evidently makes the atmosphere warmer.
What some fail to acknowledge is that hot regions tend to become a great…
Women and Men might have many many differences. But we do have one thing in common: body hair. It’s same one that grows like grass on our scalp. And the same one that has a $105.14 billion industry but then there’s also a hair removal industry worth $16.9 billion… Women disproportionality feel the obligation to shave, cut, wax or laser remove their body hair. …
You read that right. Cow poop. It might make your nose scrunch from the stench, but recent discoveries reveal that these piles of fecal matter have the capacity to power houses! However, the process is still full of complications (gnarly smell not included) and advantages for our planet’s state.
There are 3 methods that entail how cow poop can create electricity:
Biodigesters are utilized to digest the organic material biologically. Sounds like a clump of biology terms jargon? …
Imagine you’re in a boat that is moving on the river of Jordan. You then realize that the Dead Sea is at the end of the river. The current between these two water streams are really fast, this simple pressure has the possibility to generate electricity by turning turbines. But before, we need to understand the mechanisms of it all.
When two water streams with different salinic concentration, which means that one stream has a higher concentration of salt than the other stream, a pressure is created. Oceans tend to have high salinity whilst rivers have lower concentrations. …
When I asked questions in elementary school, my teachers would tell me to stop questioning everything. I thought about it, then stopped asking questions. All I wanted was to fit in, I hated having the whole class look behind my back when I raised my hand.
But I now realize that asking questions is a superpower. It helps us attain our full potential.

Albert Einstein is probably the first thing that comes to mind when people think of a genius. …
