The city of Sparta is considered by many historical figures the most powerful polis in ancient Greece, with its brave people and strict laws separating the Lacedaemonians from other cities, contributing to the victories in the Persian (499–449BC) and the Peloponnesian wars (431–404BC). Nevertheless, this wasn’t the only distinctive element of the Spartans since their gender balance and their focus on the involvement of women would be a feature only found in Sparta.

The superiority of men was established in all Greek societies but the scale of it in Sparta wasn’t that much of an obstacle to female involvement. Spartan…


The most important event in modern Russian history through Western and Soviet interpretations

Photo by Steve Harvey on Unsplash

The Russian Revolution was the basis for one of the most powerful political ideologies developed throughout the course of history; the more radical view of socialism, communism. It had been a theory since Karl Marx presented the idea in the mid-19th century but it had never been applied until the end of the Revolution in the Russian Empire and the establishment of the Bolsheviks as the ruling party, in June 1923.

This article identifies and evaluates the different interpretations and views on the contemporary debate, which aims at answering the question of whether the Russian Revolution of 1917 was the…


A Supernova Explosion in the Shape of a Hand

One thing is for sure: Science never disappoints. This is a circumstance that fully backs this claim.

The blast wave from an exploded star that moves at nearly 9 million miles per hour was captured. A movement of a 9 million mile velocity was captured with human data.

Evidence was combined from the 14 years and was put in use from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. In the paper Fast Blast Wave and Ejecta in the Young Core-Collapse Supernova Remnant MSH 15–52/RCW 89 written by Kazimierz J. Borkowski, Stephen P. …


“Important clues to the galaxy hosting the black hole”

Have you ever seen objective evidence on the origins and the evolution of the universe and different galaxies? If not, get ready because science will bring you closer to understanding the world and our existence in different galaxies.

A group of astronomers from all over the globe has created images that contain groundbreaking and astonishing details when it comes to a galaxy cluster having a black hole at its center.

This is where we also find evidence about the travel at high speed and along an intergalactic “road of matter.”

If we want to be scientifically correct and truthful to…


Forget your Plan B. You won’t need it.

I would lie if I stated that this is a simple question to be answered.

I would also be lying if I said that there is a specific answer, since not only is every student different, but every situation isn’t the same neither.

When one wants to find an answer to this question, it would be essential to ask someone who has experienced a similar situation.

Personally, I was honored to have been accepted by McGill University, where I am currently studying. Therefore, I would be able to provide some insight for future undergraduate or graduate students.

However, please be…


Things Wikipedia won’t tell you about going viral

As someone aspiring to publish his own book by the end of the year, I would really be more than interested in learning the best tips that a self-publisher should follow.

At the end of the day, why not write the short guide myself, since this is advice that every self-publisher wished he had before putting his work out there.

So let’s cut to the chase.

  1. The first impression of your book isn’t everything — it’s 90% of the work. It’s what will make the consumer take a moment and read your description.
  2. Going the DIY route for the cover…


Focus more on loving what you are doing

I have been hearing more and more about students giving up their dreams since they don’t comply with the university rankings they had chosen at the beginning of their student lives.

Look, I am a student at McGill University, and that’s because, since the early years of my high school life, I was determined to get there and be future McGill alumni.

I am well aware that it’s not in the top-10 universities of the world, and it’s not, generally, the first one in the country of Canada.

What’s even the notion of giving up your dreams about the university

What’s my favorite hobby? My favorite hobby is…

Wait a minute. You know what? Let’s play a game for this particular topic. I don’t want to make it too easy. Enough with all the dry and vaguely-written essays that can’t connect with the reader.

This piece will answer the question of when I started this hobby. Only the question of the time. This will be answered by picturesque experiences and fascinating stories of my childhood.

These stories and experiences are only there to help you, aren’t they?

Hopefully, you will see its value and quality by the end of the…


Is Capitalism evil, after all?

From the unity of strong communities to the world of me, myself, and I.

The world is changing. Dramatically.

A pretty vague statement, correct? When did we become like that? Why did we do it?

For many, these are some of the biggest existential questions for what they are actually doing in this spinning rock.

Others just live their lives with some materialistic purposes.

I repeat. When did the world become such a scary place? …
