Studying abroad is not an easy task at all. The person, who is planning to complete his or her studies, is going to face many challenges and difficult scenarios. However, to be ethical international student you must accomplish these steps to overcome some challenges in future. First of all, learn the language, when you have the ability to speak, read, and write then you basically have the key to communicate with other people. Second, discover the culture, you need to know the traditions of the people in the country, that you’re planning to study in. Learn about their “Do’s and Don’ts” to avoid getting misunderstood. Third, be honest with your professors, do not copy anybody’s work whenever you’re required to do something. you got to “Walk your talk”. Finally, respect others; by respecting other people you develop your relationship with them and the feeling of trust and gratitude spreads.


The Healthiest Diet

The number of American people who only eat vegetables (Vegans) is increasing. The number has been estimated to reach 2.2 million people just in the United States of America. However, this dies is not healthy because it lacks some essential nutrients for the human body. The all-meat diet also has the same issues. The healthiest diet must provide our bides with what they need. The best diet for our health requires that we consume vegetables and meat and the portions depend of the body mass.

Meat is rich with protein, iron and vitamin B, which are necessary for most creatures on earth. However, eating only meat diets can cause having issues with stabilizing blood pressure due to the fact that meat has high levels of sodium, which absorbs water in the body and may cause dehydration. A study has found that Turkey and Chicken have been found to be strongly associated with weight gain, this supports the theory that says all-meat diets are unhealthy.

Vegetables are so much easier to grow than animals. For instance, growing a Raddish only takes two-three weeks while growing a cow takes three years. This can save time and cost for farmers and even may help the country’s economy to flourish. However, vegetables lack Protein, Calcium and some essential fatty-acids from fish. First of all protein helps the body function, second, Calcium is essential for the human skeletal system and responsible for the growing of bones. Although being vegan is unhealthy, vegetables lower the risk of developing high blood pressure, cancer, heart diseases diabetes and obesity; due to the reason that vegetables are lower in fat and higher in fiber than meat.

Vegan people might claim that only eating vegetables leads to quick weight loss because of the low caloric intake. Even though this is true, it is not recommended at all to lose weight quickly because it leads to the lack of energy. Also, when someone is a vegan for a long time he or she might suffer malnutrion. Furthermore, All-meat diets have a similar issue. These diets force the human body to burn fat, which is not as good as it sounds. Forcing the body to burn fat because of not consuming carbohydrates, which is a source of energy, can lead to dehydration, weakness and muscle loss.

To conclude, whether a person only eats meat or vegetables he or she will suffer many negative consequences on their body’s health; due to the fact that both diets lack great amounts of essential nutrients for the human body such as Protein, Carbohydrates and fat. I believe in the future more people will be aware of these issues and will find balance in their diets.




How Advertising Influences People

Many companies today spend hundreds of millions on advertising their products or services. Everyone started to realize that it is very unlikely that a company would sell its products and succeed without promoting them to people. However, a group of people disagrees. Those groups of people seem to have different opinions on the influence, the need and the effectiveness of advertising.

The first group claims that spending money and time on advertising is useless because people look for products with better quality. Consequently, many small businesses which could not afford to advertise their products or services have succeeded and developed without advertising. Another reason is that advertisements always exaggerate the benefits and ignores the disadvantages of a product, which leads some people to not trust them at all.

On the contrary, the other group agrees that if advertisements are really useless why would companies keep investing on them. In fact, companies earn much more money when their products are advertised to people. Due to the fact that people are easily influenced by advertisements, especially, children. Also, after the rise of the internet, it became a lot cheaper to advertise and  many small businesses mainly advertise on the internet. Moreover, marketing and advertising have created jobs for a huge number of people.

In my opinion, marketing is necessary to succeed in business. People can argue the benefits of advertising forever but the statistics do not lie. I expect that even individuals will market themselves more than today in order to get jobs in the future, which really shows the value of advertising.
