This website is a podium for disseminating knowledge in an objective manner and sparking discussions on various important issues that affect every one of us. Most information is presented in a static manner, meaning that it doesn’t change. An article is written and published and a lecture is recorded and distributed. However, with the development of more effective means of communication we can make the process more dynamic and cooperative. If people have questions or comments about an article or a lecture then, by sharing those thoughts, the article can be updated and the lecture (if given again) can be revised. This will improve both the quality of information and its delivery. Please participate in this beneficial process by leaving your comments.
