For the Love of Mothers! | Monica Bassili

With this in mind, it is essential to reevaluate and re-envision your relationship with your mother. Although cliche and overused, we truly only have one set of parents and failing to award them the compassion and time to see their perspectives may only cause you more harm in the long term. For me, even those I have been gone for four years, the pain and anger never left without taking the time to talk with them and realize that they did the best they could. Such an example is not only helpful to Mother’s Day but for the rest of your life. No matter how far you run, the pain in your heart for the harm caused by your parents stays with you.

Does Colour Inspire? | Jacqueline Biollo, MBA, ICD.D

Create a positive mindset. I knew I didn’t want to disappoint the event organizer by not respecting the request, so, to complement my positive mindset, I created a feeling of gratitude. I was appreciative of the opportunity to attend this unique colour-themed event, where I would network and be exposed to opportunities that excite me.

Woman Driver, Angry Feminists and Irrationality 

“The fact is, men are worse drivers if you compare people’s accident rate according to their gender,” I added, “Would you please be so kind as to let me be rational and cite some research data? According to a document published by China Justice Big Data Service Platform, while males only take up about 70% percent of all drivers, they have accomplished 94.6% of criminal traffic accidents. This data means males are 8.8 times more likely to cause serious trouble as drivers than females. Is that rational enough?”

     “Wha……wai……Where did you get those numbers?” My father was startled.

     “I am reading from my phone.” I admitted, smiling: “Do you want the citation,dad? I have collected quite a lot of pictures of official data about gender differences on my phone, just in case someone would accuse me of being ‘irrational,’ which had happened many times. Now, my dear man driver dad who cannot drive as well as mom, where is your rational, concrete evidence?”
