Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and Altitude Sickness

In 2012, I was lucky enough to get to climb Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro. Though the "climb" is really not more than an occasionally steep hike, it is still challenging because of the endurance needed at high altitude and, oddly, for the stamina in takes for the hike down.

The Link Between Urban Sprawl and Obesity

Let's take things "back to the future" by implementing new city developments with less importance on making things easier for cars. 65% of Americans are overweight and 31% are considered obese.

Online Blogging and the Impact for Women in Iran

Though the internet seems the social norm in most Western cultures, the Middle East has only recently been introduced to the internet. The internet has the ability to change cultural dynamics, as it did in the United States by enriching millions of homes. Similarly, it has given women in Iran a sense of hope and a channel to address issues faced by their society.

America is Tearing Itself Apart: Is this the Beginning of the End?

For a long time, I've been trying to decide if the American political environment has always been as aggressive or if this is a new wave of American politics. Of course, I've had AP US History in school but when you're growing up it's hard to put things into perspective. As I have gone through college and entered the adult world, the far reaching effects of political polarization have become apparent to me- and seem to be getting worse.

Are Turn Signals Really That Important?

If I recall, one of the first things I remember in Driver's Ed was using your turn signal. In fact, it is one of the first things parents usually drill into their children's heads as they teach them safety when operating a vehicle. Why is it then, that the number of people who ignore the convenient lever right next to where your hand (should) be resting, is so excessively high?

Best Facial Cleanser for Combination Skin

I have struggled with acne/combination skin since I was 11. I am now 25. Though my acne has lessened over time, I have tried seemingly everything on the market from prescription to over the counter. I have tried antibiotics, Duac and Differen topical gels, three rounds of Accutane, Proactiv, Biore products, Neutrogena products...the list goes on. It seemed like skin regimes that worked for others just ended up a colossal waste of money for me.

Meetings: Necessary or Waste of Time?

Most people have been involved in meetings- they are practically inescapable. They are at school, at work, in sports, at church...wherever there is a collection of people, there will inevitably be a meeting. If they are so prevalent, there must be evidence that meetings are necessary for anything to be accomplished. I sure hope so.

Is America as Handicapped Friendly as it Thinks it is?

Two weeks ago, I had hip surgery that put me on crutches for up to six weeks. Before this happened, it seemed like everywhere I went in America there were handicap accessible facilities wherever I went - public restrooms, automatic door opening, ramps, etc. However, these past two weeks have brought to my attention the number of handicap problems that people with a permanent disability must have dealt with their entire life.

Is Hip Arthroscopy a New Answer to Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic pain, especially that of the lower back, is a common ailment for millions of Americans. It is one of the main reasons people stay home from work or withdraw from physical activities. Millions and millions of dollars are spent trying to treat and diagnose this chronic condition. However, if you are like me, much of this money is wasted on trying to get real results.
