The Internet, especially lately, seems to bring to the surface or even amplify this whole situation. We see it everywhere.
There are very few websites that guarantee your ownership of your posts and data entered or published there. Unfortunately, most of the online platforms out…
After attending Princeton University for a couple of years, in 1939, Alan Turing returned to England just before the Second World War and went to work for the British Cryptanalytic Headquarters at Bletchley Park, in Milton Keynes.
At this Allied code-breaking centre, Alan Turing and his team managed to crack The Enigma. This consists of various German codes through which they communicated on the battlefields, skies and oceans.
Turing’s pivotal role in helping the Allies during World War II coincided with the period when he used his ability to see patterns and equations to shape what would later be called…
She told me they decided that they were only going to give me two more weeks. If I didn’t meet my targets, they were going to fire me.
At that moment, I thought my whole world was going to collapse. I felt betrayed, attacked, and more insecure than I had ever been.

It’s 6 AM in the morning. The noise made by my parents awakens me. I know I have to wake up too. In two hours, I have to be at school.
We were going to have a math test. I feel like going back to sleep only when I think about it. Encouraging myself, I yawn a few times, and I go to eat.

They say that in life, you don’t get what you want, you get what you need. Then what’s the point of wanting something?
The other day, during my lunch break, I went outside for a short walk. After a long time, I felt the sun warming my skin again.

I know. This is a tricky one.
I’ve gone back and forth on this, but I still tend toward striving to become better at something and, sure, reaping the worldly benefits that come with it. And yet, why is this so?
