At the age of 20, working at a fast food restaurant would be a dream, but even in such areas you can only enter through connections and nepotism. Basically I ve never had a job, and have very little money I get as allowance at university. I want to know if it s possible for me to enter the international stock market and actually benefit from it with money as little as $10-$50? I know that for you to start gaining from this investment would take time, but it s worth it. I just need to know if it s possible and if it is, what do I need to know

    I'm a 19 year old male, moderately obese and trying to get in shape. I tried running one morning and after 45 seconds my thighs, butt and lower back were itching so bad I had to stop. Itching is not unusual when running, when I was in highschool it would itch and I could actually ignore the sensation because it was mild, when I'm at my cousins, we play a lot and it involves a lot of running and there's barely an itch, but this time it was so overwhelming that I couldn't go any further. I tried it two more times, and the overwhelming itch came back within a minute. What's the problem here? If there's not much I can do, what other cardio routines can I do that don't involve long distance running.

    I've been reading a book recently called "How To Read A Book" by Adler Mortimer. It's really hard to push through, however, so it's taking me forever to read through it. Basically what it's supposed to teach me is how to read any great non-fictional book and derive understanding and knowledge for it. For instance, I was an arts student in highschool (finished highschool last year) but I'm supposed to learn how to read from a science book and understand a lot from chemistry, physics and biology, maybe even be able to put it to practice. But the book has been taking too long for me to push through. Do any of you know how I can learn how to read better and understand what I'm reading to clarity? If you have techniques or hacks, please share. Articles and links are welcome too. Even book suggestions.

    I'm a bilingual eighteen year old in my last year of Highschool. I'm fairly competent at speaking both my native tongue and the English language. My only problem is that I'm a social retard. I can barely hold a conversation and these are always dry. I'm not funny, although I do appreciate a lot of humor, but when I try it just comes out as cringey. I stutter sometimes, or stumble over my words more than my peers do. When speaking, I need to take a lot of time thinking because I'm not competent enough to string more than 3 sentences without stumbling over my words or making terrible errors. Maybe it's because I have low confidence, but that has improved greatly in the past few years. Or maybe It's because I'm reserved because there are things I don't want people knowing about me. (I live in a conservative country, so maybe you can get the hint) I just need to know how to fix this. I want to speak English as fluently as I write it and I don't want anyone to feel like talking to me is more of an affliction than a pleasure. I've seen people deliver improvised speech in the most articulate manner and at a pleasing pace. I'll find a way to improve my social interactions and whatnot, but I need help in becoming an eloquent English speaker with great banter and flowery language.

    Last year in a South African school located in Pretoria there was an incident. This black girl was told to straighten her hair like the school rules required her but she refused and instead came back with a large luscious afro as a way of protesting. The other black girls joined her saying that the school rules required them to force their hair into eurocentric standards which was to them a form of racism which was unfortunate seeing as they were in their own home country and were being forced to be more white. The less white you are, the less beautiful you are; it's something we've had imparted on us even by our own parents indirectly. It's something I've noticed even with my peers. They straighten their hair, change their accents and even try to get in with the white crowd and it;s just sad. Finally this got news coverage and the school came under fire They had to change the rules quickly and now black girls were allowed to wear their hair as naturally as white girls. But white parents and some black parents weren't happy with this. Why do you think that is? And why was it so bad for her Biology to be accepted without being ridiculed and called "untidy" or just unprofessional?

I love my hair, I think it's nice and soft when it's grown and it has this shine to it and whenever I can, I try to keep it as long as it can be, but at school they won't allow me, when the white students are allowed to keep their hair long. I asked this question before and the answers were about how nappy hair is untidy or something. Why is nappy hair untidy? Is it because it doesn't reach Caucasian standards? Because I know how Africans appreciated their own hair before slavery, after slavery it is seen as disgusting. I need to ask my headmaster why he made those hair standards, he's black so he should be able to see my point of view especially since mos of the students and teachers are black. Can someone give me arguments I can make against this discrimination?
