The video provides data on how many of the things we are used to or familiar with will take on a whole new meaning in the coming years.

Last summer, as part of a series of initial offerings for the mSchool, I worked on a course about soccer (or football as it globally known). I've been playing all my life and will continue to do so collegiately this fall.

The course also focuses on soccer's various competitions and the players and figures who catapulted it to become the world's most famous sport by some distance. Spain's national soccer team, La Roja, recently wo...

As a U.S citizen, you have the right to vote if qualified. Many years ago, minorities, mostly African Americans didn't have the privilege of deciding their leaders. However through different movements led by great leaders, the 15th amendment to the US Constitution prohibited the government from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's "race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” The 15thamendment was part of the reconstruction amendments following the Civil War. Next year, I would also have the privilege to enjoy this right after I turn 18. It is a very important s...

Paul the Oracle Octopus is being looked at as an important figure after the end of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa as it has correctly predicted the outcome of some of the key games. It all started after he predicted wins for Germany in all their group stage games against Australia and Ghana. Many may have not had any interest in those predictions because the Octopus is just an animal and looking at the quality players in Germany's squad, they were somewhat expected to win all games in their group. However things got interesting as the tournament progressed and Paul kept having ...
