China Continues to Devour Its Own Children
Last edited 21st May 2015

This story concerns a married couple who each have one child with their previous spouses (it is unclear if the previous marriages ended due to divorce or death). According to the regulations set down by the Guizhou province where the woman in question, Qin Yi, works as a teacher, the couple are not allowed to have their own child. In the eyes of the province’s education bureau and the health and planning commission, their “one child” quota has been filled in their previous marriages. Thus, when it found out that Qin was five months pregnant, the commission ordered that she have an abortion by the end of the month.

Last edited 20th May 2015

From Instagram photos, to blogs and tweets, Facebook updates and free downloadable prayer cards and posters, the event will reach a global audience bigger than the 200,000 to 260,000 expected to attend the ceremony in this Central American nation of 6 million.

Last edited 18th May 2015

If there's a place in need of salvation at this moment, it's this country named after Jesus Christ. Even as it gets ready to mark one of the biggest events in its history -- the May 23 beatification of slain archbishop Oscar Romero -- El Salvador, which in Spanish means "the savior," is in the midst of one of its most violent periods.

How Comparison is the Thief of Joy
Last edited 12th May 2015

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Don’t get me wrong; I think a healthy amount of competition is a great thing in life. It pushes us to aim further and higher, learn and develop our skills, and combat brain-rot.

Ethical Fashion: Do You Care that a Slave Made Your Dress?
Last edited 12th May 2015

I adore a store called Forever New. It is full of stunning clothing and everywhere you look, diamante glints. For a magpie like me, this store is my nest. Half of the dresses in my wardrobe are from this shop. Forever New has received most of my income to date, and at this rate will probably end up with my inheritance too.So when a friend told me they used slave labour to produce the gorgeous clothing…I kept shopping there.

21 Surprising Statistics That Reveal How Much Stuff We Actually Own
Last edited 18th May 2015

Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter. We tire of cleaning and managing and organising. Our toy rooms are messy, our drawers don’t close, and our closets are filled from top to bottom. The evidence of clutter is all around us.
