We all recall back to 2015; a year where radical extremist groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram terrorized the world. We vividly remember the violent events in Paris in January and November. One of the emerging concerns that arose from the attacks is how we can combat terrorism. For example, ISIS wants an Islamic republic in the Middle East and Boko Haram is against the education of girls. This article talks about how education can act as a buffer to recruiting terrorists.
Pranav organized a team building session yesterday for the development team. During the session, people expressed their concerns and ideas regarding how to better coordinate the work between each other when working on a bigger project.

We prepared the cart for display and added some more interactive elements to encourage the scholars to step into the rink and play with the "machine". We build an altaresque shelf displaying some of our "tools".

cryptic sparks of blissful confusion, yeah!
