The Erich von Werner Society thinks that the planet and the people on it is entering a new major period. These changes are because of or are accelerated by factors, which in combination and interaction with each other will trigger a new era: Weakness of the Western world (e.g. instability, diminishing confidence in existing orders, loss of competitiveness, the political rise of China).
A couple of the world’s biggest problems :
Lack of Human Rights: Political systems hinder human rights and liberties that are inherent to every individual regardless of his or her demographic, religion, culture, gender, race, etc. In 2014, Amnesty International recorded that more than a third of governments imprisoned its citizens who were exercising their rights. Abuse and conflict occur on every continent – from state-sponsored killings in Syria to repression of speech in Russia.
The number of hungry people in the world has increased over the last few years. One in nine people in the world habitually go hungry, and, as a result, suffer from nutritional deficiencies. Food security is the biggest threat to the overall health of the human population, more so that malaria, tuberculosis or HIV.

In German : Die Erich-von-Werner-Gesellschaft geht davon aus, dass sie denkt, dass der Planet und die Menschen darauf eine neue Epoche betreten. Diese Anderungen sind auf Faktoren zuruckzufuhren oder werden durch Faktoren beschleunigt, die in Kombination und Interaktion miteinander eine neue Ara auslosen: Uberbevolkerung und Vermissten Lebensperspektiven (z. B. aufgrund der demographischen Entwicklung auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent) : Kapitalismus verbessern.
Es wird niemals moglich sein, die Welt alleine zu verandern. Eine Idee kann noch so grossartig sein, aber sie braucht Menschen, die an sie glauben. Menschen, die sie umsetzen. Menschen, die fur eine bessere Welt kampfen. Arbeiten wir zusammen. Kontaktieren Sie uns. Lassen Sie uns die Welt gemeinsam besser machen.
White teeths guide. The antibiotic tetracycline causes gray teeth in children whose teeth are still developing. Antibacterial mouthwashes that contain chlorhexidine or cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Some antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and blood pressure medications cause tooth stains, as can iron and excess fluoride. If bleaching doesn’t help, ask your dentist about dental bonding, in which a tooth-colored material is applied to teeth.
Chew Gum That Contains Xylitol: Multiple studies have shown that chewing gum that contains xylitol twice daily helps fight tooth decay by lowering plaque buildup. Brands like Trident make gums with this ingredient, so pick up a pack and get chewing if you’re looking to whiten your teeth.
If your teeth are grayish, rather than yellow, bleaching won’t do much. You’ll need to seek out methods to correct the graying, which may include restorations on cavities. For graying you can’t fix otherwise, you may want to invest in bonded teeth or veneers. One common side effect of teeth whitening is sensitive teeth in the 24 hours after your teeth have been exposed to whitening gel. You can take a pain reliever like ibuprofen if the sensitivity is too much to bear.

Quiz games are becoming more and more popular and here are several reviews on this topic. Trivia Crack returns with a new and improved version that does more than just add a fresh coat of paint. Trivia Crack 2 (Android, iOS) includes new game modes such as a head-to-head time attack mode called Tower Challenge as well as daily challenges and tasks – all of which you can play against your Facebook friends or random opponents. The Classic mode that Trivia Crack is built on is still here, as players compete to collect themed charcters that mirror trivia categories. This version has added more characters to collect depending on the question themes. The app’s advertising does come on a bit strong in Trivia Crack 2, though a VIP subscription removes ads and provides in-game perks such as endless lives, special packs and discounts. You can also stick to the original Trivia Crack (Android, iOS), which has just introduced a new live trivia showdown mode featuring cash prizes, very much in the style of HQ Trivia.
If you’re looking for a rowdy trivia game to break out at your next party, check out Smart Ass by University Games, a fast-paced trivia game in which players don’t have to wait their turn to yell out the answer and advance around the board as they solve clues. Smart Ass is designed for two to six players, and it’s best for teens and adults, as you might have guessed from its name alone. The game comes with a game board, six playing pieces, more than 400 question cards, a pair of jumbo dice and instructions. During gameplay, participants take turns rolling the dice and reading out the clues on the question cards. Each question card contains eight hints that will help you guess the answer, and the first person to figure out the correct response simply yells it out.
Silicon Flip : The rules of this game are very simple. The game begins by you flipping a virtual coin and predicting whether the coin will land heads or tails side up. If you are correct then you get 1 point, but if you are wrong then you are given a general knowledge quiz question to answer. If you get the question right then your score will remain unchanged, but if you get it wrong then you lose 1 point. This process is then repeated until you either run out of time – you only have 5 minutes to complete the game – or you reach the 10 points needed to win. More on General knowledge game.
SwagIQ stands out from the rest on this list because it doesn’t directly dole out cash. Instead, you play to win SwagBucks, which can then be exchanged for cash via PalPal, or redeemed for gift cards for popular sites like Amazon or Steam, stores such as Barns & Noble, JCPenney, and Bath & Body Works, or even donate your winnings to charities including Doctors Without Borders or ALS. SwagIQ also lets you earn points based on recruiting new players, and you’ll get a 10% cut of whatever they make playing the app (which, admittedly, sounds a bit like a trivia pyramid scheme to me). You can also spend your SwagBucks to buy back into games, and you earn a few SwagBucks each time you play. 100 SwagBucks convert to 1 USD, but there are deals to be had if you redeem your SwagBucks for gift cards.
This is a story about how sometimes mass media has a dramatic influence on our decisions and how they can change people’s life for the better. The fate of children in the villages of Togo, who have to work hard so their parents can search for food to eat, has always been of little concern to others, except perhaps the children themselves. Jeremies Pimizi, head of Fly for Live Charity, had once been such a child. He was born and raised in Blacksmiths Village in Kara Province.
For five long years, Jeremy sought help and support for the youngest residents of his village by writing to various international foundations and successful Togolese businesspeople. But all his efforts were in vain.
Thanks to Jeremy, his native village was visited by a crew of RT international TV channel. The crew told the story of the blacksmiths’ village and produced a documentary film on the difficult life of children in Togo under the title “Togo: Tough to Survive.”
As it turned out, it was after watching this documentary about the life of young children in Togo that a small boy of the same age from a different continent decided that he had to come for a visit and provide all the necessary assistance he could.
The boy’s name is Andrii Fednov. He is six-years-old, he is a student at an ordinary school in Ukraine, and a footballer. After watching the film about the life stories of children from Blacksmiths Village and Damad village, Andrii decided to give them a helping hand, and told his father, Ukrainian traveler Pavlo Fednov, about the children in Africa who would really like to have their own football and that this would make them happy. Andrii said that he wanted to go to Africa and give the children his own football, and added that they also had to buy food and other necessary items.
After watching the film, Andrii’s father promised him that they would go to Togo by all means and will help the children when they have raised enough money for that.
The saddest thing about the life of rural children in Togo is that poverty forces them to work hard in conditions that some adults would probably not manage, instead of going to school, learning, growing and developing.
Many of these young children abandon their homeland and travel to Nigeria to find a job and earn a living. Often, though, instead of getting a real job, the children find themselves working on plantations as slaves. They have to endure 12-14-hour days just for food.
Nigerian plantation farmers view young Togolese as sub-humans, and would often force famished and sick workers to toil in the fields. Many of these young people never return to their homeland again or see their families.
Playing street football is perhaps the only joy for residents of Blacksmiths Village, Damad Village and many other villages in Togo.
On those rare occasions when the village falls silent, when no clanking is heard from the forges, and when dozens of hammers in thin hands of the children stop crushing pieces of rock, the boys, overcoming the pain from their injuries, pick up a ball they made of old nylon bags and tied all around with an old rope, and a full-scale football battle begins.
Then a real miracle happens, when children, tired and exhausted after a long day at work, race around their improvised football pitch, argue hotly about breaking the rules and even demonstrate various football tricks they had seen somewhere.
At that time, they are joyous and excited, filled with much emotion and feelings, which they lack so badly when on ordinary days they have to do lots of hard, routine work.
After one of the boys from Blacksmiths Village told the film crew that he wanted a real football, Andrii, 6, and his father Pavlo traveled to Togo.
It was not easy, even for such an experienced traveler as Pavlo Fednov to organize such an expedition. Andrii had to be thoroughly prepared for the trip: get vaccinated against yellow fever and other diseases, select effective and safe medications to treat malaria and other tropical diseases that are very harmful and toxic and represent a considerable danger to anyone, especially children.
They were met by Jeremies who took them to their hotel for the night. In the early morning, the three of them went shopping together at nearby stores and markets.
The guests from Ukraine bought piglets, a lot of rice and other food, various necessities and hygiene items and many other things they knew the villagers would appreciate. Andrii offered advice to his father, and personally selected quite a few products for the residents of Blacksmiths Village.
The road to the Blacksmiths Village was not easy and ran through almost the entire country from its south-western to its north-eastern corner, but by the evening the charity cargo was delivered to its final destination and the entire village gathered to celebrate.
Andrii gave the children their new footballs, candy and stationery products, and the older residents of the village got
gifts and groceries. The boy also presented the villagers a hefty sum of money to help them meet their needs.
Meanwhile, Pavlo cooked traditional Ukrainian foods on an open fire. The villagers could not pronounce the names of those dishes but the great spicy aroma that flowed all over the village made almost every adult at Blacksmiths Village come out to join in the feast.
The fabulous dinner was provided to more than 150 people, and the children received many good emotions not only from the sport games: their faces virtually shone with happiness after they had their fill of sweets, drinks and other treats.
As they sat around the fire as one large family, Jeremies and other residents showed their inquisitive nature as they asked many questions of Pavlo about his life.
They found out that Pavel’s life was decided once and for all when he was just five-years-old. One wonderful day, he decided to run away from his daycare because he wanted to walk around the city, visit the amusement park and even go for a swim in the river. His teachers were hysterical, and his parents were shocked when they found out that their child was missing.
As Pavlo grew, he felt more and more attracted to traveling and seeing the world. Before turning 20, he had travelled all over Ukraine and dreamt of embarking on a grand world tour.
It was then that he decided to visit 100 countries of the world before he turned 30. By 27, he had visited more than 35 countries, and in the period from November 2016 to October 2017 he undertook a global tour visiting more than 120 countries of the world.
Pavlo stayed up talking to the villagers into the early hours of the morning. They drank coffee, and Pavlo told them about his journeys, interesting and beautiful places that he had visited, the most famous cities of the world, and nature in various regions of the planet. The residents of Blacksmiths Village did not want him to go, and asked him many interesting questions that Pavlo was happy to answer.
Having spent the night in a village hut, Jeremy took Pavlo and Andrii back to the capital so that they could purchase more of the same products and gifts for residents of Damad Village, located in the vicinity of Lomé at the foot of Mount Agou.
Jeremies said that the Ukrainian team planned to go to the other village the next day because later that evening they were scheduled to leave and go back home.
And so these plans were implemented. When they came to Damad Village, the Fednovs, accompanied by the head of Fly for Live, presented their gifts and groceries to the adult residents of the village, and gave footballs to all the children.
As he told our publication about the visit of the Ukrainian guests, Jeremies said, with a sad smile that he had not seen so many happy children together in a very long time, and added that now he was confident that there existed people out there in the world who would respond to a call for help, even if they live on the other side of the planet.

Mexico is an awesome destination if you are looking for adventure and ancient history feeling. Palenque is an archaeological site that was located on the western edge of the Maya empire in the present-day state of Chiapas, Mexico. Palenque is much smaller than some of its Mayan neighbor cities, but it contains some of the finest architecture and sculptures the Maya ever produced. Most structures in Palenque date from about 600 AD to 800 AD including the Temple of Inscriptions, the only Mesoamerican pyramid built as a funerary monument.
Preah Vihear is a Khmer temple situated atop a 525 meter (1,722 ft) cliff in the D?ngr?k Mountains, on the border between Cambodia and Thailand.

It was dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Preah Vihear is the subject of a long-running territorial dispute between Thailand and Cambodia, and several soldiers were killed in clashes in 2009.

The traditional acoustic violin stretches four strings from tuning pegs to a tailpiece, over a bridge made of maple that transfers sound vibrations to the soundboard.
While there are electric pickups that can be fitted to an acoustic violin, a true electric violin has built-in pickups to amplify its sound. To avoid feedback caused by resonance in the violin’s hollow body, electric violins usually have solid bodies, and often have minimalistic designs to reduce weight.
Before you drive away from the pickup station, inspect the car carefully for body damage. Be sure the lights and turn signals are working properly, and check the mileage odometer. Report any defects at once.
Familiarize yourself with the workings of the car before you leave the lot. Check which side your gas tank is on, and learn how to use the headlights, windshield wipers and turn signal. It may seem obvious, but you’ll also want to memorize the make, model and color of your car – that way you won’t lose it the first time you park in a crowded lot!
