Did you ever ask for help?

I remember one instance of asking for help to someone. I did not doubt the answer. I expected a Yes. One instance isn't much in six decades. This blog topic is not about business-related help questions. Those have a joint purpose: finish the job or task. My topic is about personal questions for help. My original blog title was: Why are we afraid of asking for help?...

Is it a pity that we have so many opinions??

Recently, I had a conversation about the abundance of opinions. In our past, you had to send your handwritten or typed opinion in a sufficiently stamped envelope to a newspaper that might not even publish it.

The “third road” aka trialism

There are some fierce debates in our lives: either you make a choice for this (eg, Android, electric cars), or for that (eg, Apple iOS, fossil fuel cars) given our priorities. People suggest that there is no third road (eg, full hybrid cars). This is an example of dualism. Why is a third road less popular? The words third road often relate to Politics. Examples:...
