The Correlation Between High School Dropout Rates and Drug Use

High school can be difficult for a number of reasons. It can be academically challenging, highly stressful as college preparation ramps up, and often includes a lot of social pressure to act or do as the “in crowd” does. All in all, there is a lot on high school students’ shoulders during this period. Unfortunately, this can lead to dropouts. Students will leave high school without finishing for a number of reasons, and many of these overlap with the reasons teens experiment with drugs. Feeling like they don’t belong, feeling immense stress, feeling depressed — each of these can push a student over the edge. With this in mind, we decided to look further into how high school dropout rates correlate with drug use across the U.S. Read on to learn more about our study — we start with ...

The next cybersecurity headache: Employees know the rules but just don’t care

Employees are still ignoring cybersecurity best practice despite being more aware of the risks. Cybersecurity has shot to the top of many IT leaders' priorities over the past few months as remote working became the de facto way of doing business. Yet despite more awareness of the security risks of working from home, employees are still showing a lax attitude when putting it into practice, according to new findings. Security firm Trend Micro surveyed more than 13,000 remote workers across 27 countries for its latest Head in the Clouds survey, which sought to understand individuals' attitudes towards risk in terms of cybersecurity.

Zoom: We’ve delivered on all of our security and privacy promises, apart from one

CEO Eric Yuan said the company had been working to improve safety, privacy and security, but has pushed back the date for its transparency report. The meteoric rise of videoconferencing platform Zoom during the global lockdowns was accompanied by criticism of its cybersecurity standards. As more remote workers turned to Zoom for business meetings, virtual get-togethers and other forms of socially distanced communication, it soon became apparent that security –thanks to headaches such as a wave of ' Zoom-bombing ' – was an area that needed more work. As a result, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan launched a 90-day programme that pledged to addre...

You Decide What To Do

“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey, author of self-improvement books and seminars (1932-2012)Looking at the future, if your vision is clouded by uncertainty or worry, there’s something you can do to change that. Take action. A little appreciated but very valuable truth is that you’re not destined to be molded by what happens to you or even what circumstances you’re born into. You are, however, very much a product of the choices you make and the actions you take. Quite simply and beautifully, you decide what to do.Then, of course, you need to do it. Nothing will change in your future – indeed, even today – if you fail to act. Making the tough choices is sometimes difficult, but not impossible. The way you get there is to map out a plan,...

Insight – First Sign Of Waking Up

“The first sign of waking up is the insight that we are not doomed to retrace our steps forever.” – Mingyur RinpocheUpon getting up in the morning, what’s the first thought that pops into your head? Is it the mountain of things on your to-do list? Is it disappointment that you can’t sneak in a few more winks? Do you eagerly anticipate some activity you plan to do today? Sometimes it may seem like we can’t make any headway, that there’s too much on our plate, and we’re probably going to fail anyway. Sometimes, however, just the opposite is true and we can’t wait to get started on what we want to do.Here’s a slightly different way to look at waking up: Consider that our first clue that we’re waking up to life and its possibilities is the insight that we can make significant changes – we’re n...

Live The Questions To Find The Answers

“If you live the questions, life will move you to the answers.” – Deepak Chopra, Indian-American physician, a holistic health/New Age guru, and alternative medicine practitioner (born 1947)These are wise words from a person that millions find inspirational and insightful. The fact that everyone sometimes finds it difficult to figure out the answers to seemingly impossible or complex questions doesn’t negate the fact that there are ways to go about finding the right path – if we choose to do so. The secret seems to be to embrace the questions and live them, not do everything we can to avoid them, as if in so doing they’ll somehow go away. They won’t. It’s only by living in the present and doing our best to address the questions that we’ll have any hope of finding the answers.The quest isn’t...

Believe You Are Valuable And Worthwhile

“You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being – not because anybody says so, not because you’re successful, not because you make a lot of money – but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason.” – Wayne Dyer, American self-help author and motivational speaker (1940-2015)Beaten, downtrodden, feeling like a failure and finding no hope in the future – these are the harsh realities that we sometimes face. No one, however, is more critical than we are of ourselves. Herein lies the truth: We can reverse such negative feelings – if we choose to do so.Just because others say we’re no good, can’t do anything right, are worthless and without value doesn’t make it so. By the same token, what others say about our successes, whether to our face or to someone else, while it’s comforti...

Remember What Matters

“When things are taking their ordinary course, it’s hard to remember what matters.” – Marilynne RobinsonLife gets busy. In fact, it can get so busy that you may often find yourself in a frenzy just trying to get things done. One after another, chores and tasks clamor to be tended to. The kids need a meal, the laundry’s piled up in the corner, your best friend calls and desperately needs to talk, you haven’t gone to the grocery store and your boss just handed you a hot project. Not only do you start to feel like a robot just going through the moves, you also have no time to think about what matters.It’s time to slow down and take a few breaths. The chores and duties will still be there, but you’ll be better able to sort through what’s urgent and needs attention right now and what can wait a...

Cultivate Awareness To Know Love

“When the robot mind is mastered, undisciplined thinking can and is replaced by awareness. Awareness can know love.” – Barry LongGoing through the day on automatic pilot is something most people can identify with at times. Who hasn’t felt like a zombie just going through the motions, trying to accomplish seemingly boring or repetitive tasks without giving them much thought? Letting our minds go elsewhere, not being in the moment – we’ve all done that, right? Well, we aren’t robots, so maybe this isn’t such a good idea. Maybe we should tune in, take a time out and think about the here and now. In essence, celebrate what it is to be human and to live in the present. This is called awareness.And it can lead to love.Powerful statement, to be sure, but there’s a certain element of truth to it. ...
