  Thinking of one’s life purpose –but not in college
Why are we here?

What’s the meaning of life? Why are we here? According to the next piece, questions such as this are rarely addressed in formal education these days. Preoccupied with its own survival and the education of professionals, academe is no longer a fertile ground for subtler and deeper considerations. The costs of this trend go beyond the scarce progress of humanities or the potential threat of the rising fundamentalism. The toughest challenge would seem to be for the students, who spoiled by the specialization mentality can’t afford to ponder on matters exceeding their majors or their future subsistence. Hopefully, there could be more places to discuss these issues outside the scope of organized religion or the ailing university in a near future.

Bipolar Illness Soars as a Diagnosis for the Young

Recent evidence indicates that American children and adolescents treated for bipolar disorder increased 40-fold in a few years. The article attempts to explain the trend adducing a supposed major conscience (and press) on the disease, while also blaming doctors´ misdiagnosis. The fact is that more and more youngsters are spending crucial development years consuming meds. The phenomenon also sheds some light on parent's difficulty in dealing with their children and what parenthood implies today. All the various degrees of irresponsibility seem to be creating a dangerous generalization about which are the kids´ issues these days, and of course, how to cope with them.

Our culture may be spiritually impoverished, but what it needs is not more religion
