A warm -welcome to my blog- hug to all of you out there!
LAST WEEK was quite stuffed in my case .. I was preparing, packing and fulfilling my suitcase with whatever items I will be needing in Malta for the coming year. Unfortunately, unlike the last two years, I couldn’t make up my mind whether I will be back home during the coming Christmas/winter break or if I will be staying there, which certainly means there is A LOT to pack.
So, as I promised my blog will be direct conversations from me to you in which I will be spending sometime typing away what I’ve been upto, what I liked, what’s been going on, how I feel and A LOT more.
Recently, I’ve been hopping from one shop to another trying to buy all the clothing I need and want for both winter and summer, flat necessities and little bobs and pieces I’ve been wanting to buy since awhile yet never had the chance. I also spent a lot of my time catching up with some of my high school friends, family friends and with my family!
HOWEVER, yesterday was quite an exception to all of the above since I was literally PULLED out of bed by my eldest brother at 8.30 AM to attend the closing of an event that had been organised by a mixture of his friends and mine. Of course, I tried all the methods of resistance not to go but nothing over powers my brother when he insists.
TACO -Think, Act, Change & Obtain- was a 5 days event that differed from a series of workshops, social programs, competitions and discussions. I haven’t attended anything but the last day, which was yesterday and that included several closing speeches, thank you’s and several discussions between the “Experts” and the “participants” which brought several subjects including (Ethics, Politics, Music and Art) in a relation to humanities (that being the theme of the event) as well as my FAVOURITE PART.
I thought of writing this blog after this event in order to discuss with you what you think these relations might be and how would you improve them since a lot of them seem to need an improvement.
The aim of any event is to light up ideas and thoughts to everyone and everywhere. as well as taking the words GLOBAL.
Unfortunately participants could only attend 2 of these 4 discussions and I decided to choose Music and Ethics. SO, I thought I will type down the questions raised and see what ya’ll think
–Do you think it’s ethical that Medicine is becoming sold?
-Do you think Health insurance companies and free health care should be in every single country even if it was considered to be an outcome/profit to the country.
–Isn’t health care a right by the United Nations?
-What do you think of the process taken in order to accept a medication?
–Some medications are refused and banned although trials do prove that there is a better health condition after using the recommended dose. Why does that happen?
-It is true, every drug has a side effect. However, in some cases the good out weigh the bad. So should we do that regarding every drug? Or also take care of the fact that resistance could be developed by the disease.
-How would you define music?
-Does music necessarily means having notes, beats, and lyrics? a rhythm?
-What do you think of therapeutic Music?
-Does music always reflect what one feels or could it be a way someone uses to form an illusion of what he’s feeling?
-Taking some religious views into consideration, when is music considered to be forbidden and sinful to listen to?
-Is music always an entertainment? or could it be a reason behind many irritation?
-Is it truly scientifically proven that music lights up the brain and helps people through studying, learning, thinking and many other daily activities?
Please feel free to discuss any of the above, we’re not starting a -comment war- here but a great discussion:).
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
Until Next time,
