Social connections and privileges at school

It is generally accepted that the social network is a social capital that is used quite legally, in the whole world, unless that use of social connections harms another individual, group or whole society. Then it is corruption. The line between the legitimate use of social networks and corruption is rather thin and invisible, and corruption is one of the most important subjects of legislation in democratic countries.
I want to start a topic on the use of social connections and privileges to somebody’s own detriment.

Boycott of Chelsea Handler

On June 20, Chelsea Handler and her co-hosts attacked Serbia and the Serbian people on that evenings program of "Chelsea Lately." Along with Chris Franjola, Natasha Leggero, and Greg Proops, Ms. Handler for 3 straight minutes ruthlessly attacked Serbia and its people. The verbal attacks came after a clearly intoxicated Amy Winehouse "performed" in front of 20,000 people in Belgrade. After and during the performance, the people in attendance and state officials criticized Amy Winehouse, who had difficulty singing as a result of what would seem to be heroin usage. At this point, the attacks went from criticizing Amy Winehouse to attacking Serbia and its people.

Fear of water

I love the beach. From late spring to early fall, I spend every free moment on the banks of the Danube. I like to watch the mighty river as it flows, to meet with friends on the public beach, to slumber while listhening to the buzzing sounds around me, but also to watch the people around me.
I find espicially interesting the toddlers that craw fearlessly towards the water, sometimes so quickly that parents have to run to catch up them. However, the children over 2 years and older behave differently. Some are also afraid of entering the water.
Parents can also behave differently in these situations. Some force the children to enter the water and than, there are the cries and rants. There are parents who accept that fear and do not try to make the child enter the water, but there are also parents who are trying to eliminate children's fear and gradually get them used to enjoy the water.

Summer vacation and the dangers regarding drug abuse

My daughter, a teacher by education, left a comment on the post Summer vacation- to learn or not learn :
"I say that children should be allowed not to do anything at all. That is why it is called a vacation, because all the time is vacated. "
I fully agree with her, I never demanded of my children to learn during the holidays, but I carefully obsereved their behavior and socialization.
One of the greatest dangers lurking during the holidays is the encounter with drugs. For this reason, I am copying an article from the site stopdrogama. I thing everyone should read it carefully.
