Some young adults are pushed through conversion therapy that “helps” YAs “re-align” with heterosexuality. By Allison Heller

Almost every aspect of our lives depends greatly on the one resource that so many of us take for granted. However, we may soon not have the liberty of such impiety .The 2015 UN World Water Development report was released March 20th, and the findings are alarming. The bottom line screams that we cannot continue with our current policies and practices, because according to the report, we will be 40% short of fresh water by 2030—just 15 years from today.

THE LAST YEAR HAS BEEN DEVASTATING FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD


War crimes, crimes against humanity, and possible genocide perpetrated during the past year are reported in this statement, showing once again the danger of being a simple civilian in today’s world. The eruption of new conflicts and the persistence of others have proved the failure or the disinterest of the international community in these crises. The Syrian war, which celebrated its tragic 4th anniversary on the 15th of March, is a clear example. By Eva Jednak
