Republicans

Posted On Oct 11 2016 by

I am a first generation American, and I lived in the US for 19 years as of the date of writing this article. I didn’t know much about the Democratic party and the Republican Party before I started living here, and the more I learned about them, the more I was shocked that there were so many supporters of the Republican party in this country. To me, it is a party of the extremists. The party of the racists, the religious fanatics, people who are against the gay rights, women’s rights, immigrants, abortion, etc. Many of them are barely a …


Democracy and the Need for a Voter Certification Test

Posted On Oct 3 2016 by

I think the right to vote should be contingent upon passing a test to receive a “voter certification”. Just like we pass a test to receive a driver’s license. I understand it is a basic citizenship right in all the modern democracies, but I think it was not the right thing to do to allow anyone to vote. Democracy is not something new. It existed in the Ancient Greek for a while, and then it disappeared from the face of the earth for thousands of years, reappearing again in the last century or two. Even in those days the flaw …


Population Increase and Its Implications

Posted On Sep 6 2016 by

World population keeps increasing. Humanity spreads all over the world just like a cancer, causes other species to go extinct, and changes the face of the earth. It was easy before civilization. And it still is, in the nature. Population increases geometrically (2,4,8,16,…), but food supply, or resources either don’t increase, or they increase arithmetically (1,2,3,4,…). This means more living beings than the resources could support, and the result is the survival of the fittest. The ones that fit the environment better or have advantages tend to survive, and the others die. And as many people know, this is the …


Bay Area Experience

Posted On May 3 2016 by

My recent experience in the San Francisco Bay area helps me understand the feeling of animosity I observe in a certain segment of the American population towards foreigners and immigrants, and why Donald Trump has been so successful as a republican presidential candidate in the polls lately. I am a foreign born engineer and a first generation American. I lived in the US for 20 years so far. I worked for various companies in various states in the US. I have been living in the San Francisco Bay area for the last 5 months, and I have been observing something …


Bay Area Housing

Posted On Apr 2 2016 by

I have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 9 months now, and the problems with Bay Area housing situation becomes more and more apparent to me. Of course I knew houses were expensive around here before accepting an engineering job in the Bay Area and moving here. But hearing about something and living it is different. I moved from New Jersey to Arizona in the past, and I know how housing cost can change from state to state. My observation when I first moved from NJ to AZ was that comparable housing costs approximately twice as …
