    When World War I set Europe and the other nations of the world aflame, including the American public opinion, soon began under the influence of the war prejudice and propaganda, the denouncement of the German army and the Kaiser as they were held responsible. The historical sense of many writers and historians has told them that not just one country or just one man was solely responsible for the outbreak of such an epidemic and holocaust which left the entire world in shatters and upheavals.

Smith first mentioned this concept in his book Wealth of Nations in 1776, which was based on the idea of obtaining greater production return profits through the use of division of labor.

    In the history of mankind, sports occupy a central place in defining the era and cultures of a particular time period. In ancient times, several sports sprouted up that still exist. The Olympic Games have been with us for the last three millennia. In fact, nearly every sport we see today has had some kind of old connection. Soccer is a medieval-era sport, cricket was invented during Victorian times, baseball was invented after the civil war in America, and golf has possible Roman origins.

    One of the most important skills that we have never been taught in our schools is “learning how to learn”. Most of us have progressed most of our lives without this essential knowledge. Even if we have been told that highlighting, summarizing, rereading, etc. are the basic techniques that help us learn, we have never been taught any proven, solid, or research-backed techniques. All of these are merely handed down through generations, and due to the rapidly evolving nature of knowledge these days, these techniques have proved almost unproductive.

    To many people, economics is as confusing as physics. Just as we use physics every day even if we don’t know its technical aspects, we all use economics on a daily basis even if we don’t know its technical aspects. Yet, unlike physics, introductory economics is not as difficult as it might appear at first. However, it is true that economists speak a different “language”, in the sense that we often use terms that are not common in everyday conversation.

    Rising health care expenses have created enormous amounts of pressure in the health care system. A recurring theme is the need for reforms in the health care sector. Addressing the issues of efficient set up, equity, and the easiest possible access to medical care, critical reforms must come. Alternate funding sources must be sourced.
