It can be easy to miss out on important information, news and events that are happening in your area if you are young, wild and free. You probably only catch occasional news feeds when you are passing through home or when someone else just happens to be watching the news. And you most likely rely on your social media sites for the latest gossip and information but only hear what is being told on the social sites that you actually follow. It is important for the youth to stay clued up on what is happening in their country and what is happening all around the world because as a youth, you will one day be part of the decisions of what is happening in the world and how it is run. Your votes will choose the next president. Your voice will influence others and your guidance will one day teach others.
Stay ahead of things by reading newspapers
Newspapers are still one of the best ways to catch up on the latest news of everything that is happening locally. Sure you get great information from your friends and from social sites but the really gory, shocking and sometimes horrid things will be reflecting in newspapers. Newspapers are also a much better source of information than any internet site because the journalists go to great lengths to ensure that their information is as true and accurate as possible.
Brush up on your politics
If you don’t know much more about politics than what your parents are regularly complaining about then you are in trouble. As a young person who is one day going to be inspiring others one day, you should get clued on what is happening right now. Learning all there is about Mark Dubowitz is a great place to start since he is one of the biggest influences that is keeping you safe even though you don’t hear that much about him on the news channels. Mark Dubowitz is the executive director of the Defense of Democracies foundation and a head in an Iran energy project. He wrote several books on sanctions between America and Iran and is hosting several lectures to teach others how to be successful in international negotiations. Mark Dubowitz’s sanctions negotiations and influence is what is pressuring Iran to give up their nuclear pursuit to keep you safe so you can enjoy more concerts.
Get clued up on modern science
As a young adult who is one day going to contribute to society, you need to be clued up on much more than Nickleback’s next major concert. You should also try and develop your general knowledge regarding science. New developments are made in the medical, scientific and technological fields and are rapidly transforming the way we live. Surprisingly enough, some of the major recent findings was discovered or created by someone exactly like you. A fun loving, young person who was inspired and started working to create or develop something that is making the world a better place. Who knows, perhaps you could be the one to develop the next medical breakthrough.
