• Bullying

    by Marilena Z.

    Bullying is repeated aggressive behavior that can be physical, verbal, or relational, in-person or online. Bullies are often relentless, bullying over and over again for long periods of time. You may live in constant fear of where and when the bully will strike next, what they’ll do, and how far they’ll go. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, or pushing you (or even just threatening to do so), as well as stealing, hiding, or ruining your things, and hazing, harassment, or humiliation. Verbal bullying includes name-calling, teasing, taunting, insulting, or otherwise verbally abusing you. Relationship bullying includes refusing to talk to you, excluding you from groups or activities, spreading lies or rumors about you, or making you do things you don’t want to do. Boys frequently bully using physical threats and actions, while girls are more likely to engage in verbal or relationship bullying. But no type of bullying should ever be tolerated.

  • Body Shaming

    by Renia R.

    Many women in this world have experienced bullying for their bodies by other people. All of these comments reduce women's self-confidence worldwide. There are many types of bodies which are all beautiful and stand out. There are women too fit or too fat. Also there women with two colors on their skin or their eyes. In our society there are also women who have lost their hair. There are women who don't shave. Many of them take the decision to like people of the same sex. Who are we to make fun of these women? I have heard many times people saying “this woman isn’t normal, she has many kilos above normal” but what is normal? Why making negative comments on imperfection? Nobody is perfect! Our society gives a chance to these girls, and why shouldn't we? Many companies for example Benetton support all body types, all colors of skin and in general all kinds of women. Our society tries to help women to love themselves and all people should be proud of themselves. You are not perfect, nobody is perfect but if you can make someone smile and make someone love his or herself you are a good person that you give happiness to another person .

  • How friendly to the environment are our internet habits?

    by Emmelia E.

    The internet allows us to communicate with other people quickly and easily. You can send emails, share pictures, download music by pressing only one button. But have you ever thought how these activities impact the environment? Let’s see what the numbers and statistics say. Although the energy needed for a single internet search or email is little, we have to consider that approximately 4.1 billion people use the internet on a daily basis. In the future the time someone spends on the internet is expected to double. And it’s not only the energy our devices spend and the power for our wireless networks. Vast servers and data centres are also needed to support the internet and store the content we access. The carbon footprint of all these machines account for 3.7% of the global greenhouse emissions which is equal to the amount produced by the airline industry. It’s our obligation to consider the environment not just before we print an email, but even more before we send it.
