10 Reasons Why You Should Not Go to Pakistan - Sostre News

Pakistan is a total dystopian wasteland with nothing to see and do. The media shows it as a country filled with low-class individuals and terrorists, so that’s what it must be, right?

The mosques are just so boring and mundane.

Wazir Khan Masjid

They don’t have a sense of fashion and the industry is just traditional and outdated.

The lack of culture makes it so uninviting and boring. It’s just not vibrant and energetic.

And the people are probably all secretly terrorists or something. Pakistani’s just look so emotionless and rude.

I doubt there’s even any scenery!

Gilgit Balistan

Like none at all.

Don’t even get me started on the terrible food.

And the sweets? Disgusting and no variety at all.

I doubt they even have nice restaurants.

Everyone is just SO traditional!!

But hey, if you don’t believe me then take it from Marcel Bandur from the Tribune.

“What I had always gleaned from the media was that Pakistan was a country mired in terrorism and religious extremism, and was a highly unsafe place, especially for foreigners. Stories about how women were treated in the country were just as dismal. In stark contrast to these images, my Pakistani friends exuded warmth and wit; they were generous, well-meaning and easy to relate to. My curiosity about their country often led me to lengthy discussions with them. Their advice to me was that the only way to truly understand Pakistan was by paying it a visit.”

So the next time you plan a trip overseas, definitely don’t go to Pakistan. It’s unsafe and quite frankly boring. It is 100% what the media portrays. Right to the T.

“Why do we Ignore pain until it can no longer be Ignored”

Pain is the opposite of relief, people tend to pacify it with simple ineffective solutions that subsequently compound the problem. it is our human nature to shine it off, unconcerned with the potential ramifications of allowing it to remain untreated, slowly progressing in its intensity pain forces you to take action at this point your nerve endings are on fire, your discomfort can no longer be ignored. your mobility is compromised, eclipsed is your effectiveness, and your ability to complete day-to day simple tasks…

"Why do we Ignore pain until it can no longer be Ignored"

 Why ignore pain until it can no longer be ignored?

Pain is the opposite of relief, people  tend to pacify it with simple ineffective solutions that subsequently compound the problem. it is our human nature to shine it off, unconcerned with the potential ramifications of allowing it to remain untreated, slowly progressing in its intensity pain forces you to take action at this point your nerve endings are on fire, your discomfort can no longer be ignored. your mobility is compromised,   eclipsed is your effectiveness, and your ability to complete day-to day simple tasks. you are not your normal self. we must evaluate our life choices big and small.this is a very humbling experience in the midst of my pain i cried out to God, he formed me with his own hands, he knows me best.

He has the power to heal us, he sent me several warnings to make changes in my life.out of stubbornness and ignorance I ignored his voice. God often uses different rods to discipline his wayward children, circumstances, pain, people, God wants the very best for us, he wants to guide and protect us from dangers seen and unseen, discipline is one of his means to accomplish his purposes in our lives. we often ignore his voice until  we feel discomfort, pain is a mega-phone, it captures our attention instantly our full undivided  attention. Pain exposes our deepest vulnerabilities, we can no longer hide, we must face the facts motivated by our suffering we would not attain otherwise, this broadens the scope of our understanding and the realization of the actual reality of the physical conditions of our bodies, and are bodies limitations. In the process we are taught through our sufferings respect, consideration, and care. I know in my heart I have to make some improvements today.

The phenomena of Radical Millennial

Why The blatant disrespect?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This radical generation of millennials, are controlled by the spirit of rebellion.

naturally they rebel against humanity, authority, discipline.many are products

of a single parent household, suffer from strained parental relationships. they

harbor emotional bag, from enduring and experiencing physical and psychological

abuse.

 today’s youth lack restraint in their actions and behaviors. Growing up as an

 awkward teen, my personality often shifted, between introvert and extrovert.

I was a wall flower, my parents were working middle class people. they could not afford

to provide us with hefty allowances, fancy clothes. they made an investment in our

future by giving us their wisdom, and sharing their life experiences.

 wisdom has empowered me to consult God, consider my ways, and

with God’s help make better choices, this protects us from the consequences of

bad choices. Sadly today’s millennials, lack respect for themselves and wisdom.

they are conformed to this world participating in outrageous behaviors, promoted

on social media sites,spiritually leading billions in to bondage, hindering growth

and potential. the world may never

 the untapped potential of our youth, the world may never

see our future doctors, teachers, professors, and lawyers. unrealized potential remains

dormant. we are all given unique gifts and talents to serve the world, wisdom is worth

more than rubies and choice gold. discipline is a defense,  that protects you from danger,

knowledge, and wisdom guides the choices you make, and determines the out come of

your life experiences, the more we educate, nuture, train our youth the better equipped

they will be to thrive in adversity, to over come unimaginable circumstances, to persevere

to grow, and mature to realize and reach their full potential, would send a wave of change

that would make a positive impact in the world, that would alter society by epic proportions.

Using Handheld Devices Cause Young Children’s Speech Delay, new study claims

While technology offers convenience on one’s life, it could also impose negativity on its users especially on children.

A new study presents the possible speech delay in children upon usage of handheld devices last May 6 during 2017 Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) meeting.

The study was presented as an abstract entitled, “Is handheld screen time use associated with language delay in infants?” which claims that a thirty-minute daily usage of such devices increases the risk of a child’s speech delay by 49 percent.

“Handheld devices are everywhere these days,” said Dr. Catherine Birken, MD, MSc, FRCPC, the study’s principal investigator and a staff pediatrician and scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

A total of 894 children from ages six to twenty-four months participated in the study, conducted from 2011 to 2015.

Dr. Birken, says in a news release, the research findings could reinforce the policy recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to limit any type of screen media in children primarily on the younger ones, 18 months and below.

However, she also added that more research is required to have a clearer understanding of how screen devices affect a child’s speech delay – like knowing what type of content children indulge with.

Lead by the author Julia Ma, HBSc, an MPH student at the University of Toronto, the study is the first to probe the correlation between handheld screen time and risk of expressive language delay.

AAP Policy

Last year, November 2016, AAP issued their three policy statements, which detailed how children should use media and avoid unnecessary repercussions: “Media and Young Minds,” “Media Use in School-Aged Children and Adolescents,” and “Children, Adolescents and Digital Media.”

In these policy statements, AAP encourages parents to be vigilant as they play an integral role if technology would benefit their children or not.

“Families should proactively think about their children’s media use and talk with children about it, because too much media use can mean that children don’t have enough time during the day to play, study, talk, or sleep,” said Jenny Radesky, MD, FAAP, lead author of the policy statement, “Media and Young Minds.”

AAP policy statements elaborated the effects of media on children, prominently on health issues.

With different age group as subjects, the “Media and Young Minds” included infants, toddlers and pre-school children while “Media Use in School-Aged Children and Adolescents” focused from ages 5 to 18.

In addition, AAP released a Family Media Plan Tool on October 2016, which can be used to help parents in guiding their children for using media.

AAP Recommendations

AAP have also laid several recommendations for avoiding overexposure of children on media. These are divided into three subgroups: pediatricians, families, and industries.
