It is always easier to understand a conflict when two parties are involved, isn’t it? Two different people can disagree, fighting over the same objective, sharing opposite values, or wishing to achieve polar opposite goals. But how can we explain a situation in which the disagreement is inside someone’s head? That’s exactly what experts call an intrapersonal conflict. We have already analysed its motivation and role types. This time we’ll find out what this ‘condition’ is and how simply it can influence our behaviour.

The word itself is amusing and over the last few years has found its way into the Oxford dictionary. A Selfie is defined as “ A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.”

June 01, 2018 ... Not fiction, these are actual headlines from the news about road rage incidents. Such headlines appear all over the world with disturbing regularity.  So what makes some 'perfectly normal' people react like monsters once they get behind the wheel and how should one react if one is a victim of what is commonly known as road rage?

Think about it, using emojis or emoticons in everyday written conversation has become a habit of ours, hasn’t it? If you just check your phone you will find that most if not all of your messages are full of emojis! Some messages even consist entirely of emojis! Emoticons are becoming so influential in everyday conversation that they have become a serious topic among linguists. It seems as if we’re traveling back in history, or maybe making a full circle from pictograms to hieroglyphs to phonemic lettering and now slowly but surely back to pictograms.

Anyone who has subscribed to mailing lists in recent years will have received an avalanche of emails concerning privacy policies and data handling. Some people might mistake this for concern, or a reflection of corporations’ guilty consciences. In reality, firms are scrambling to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on Friday May 25. Although the GDPR is theoretically supposed to grant consumers more power and control over their data, few people have a clear understanding of what it actually is and what it means for them. The regulation has been criticised for being too complex, even by corporate law standards. Here Youth Time will try to bring some clarity to a confusing and complex issue.

Art Or Forgery?

History is full of "ifs". What if the Archduke Franz Ferdinand had not been assassinated, what if Hitler had not come to power... And with just a slight shift in direction for Han van Meegeren, his name would have probably fallen into oblivion.

Yoga as a phenomenon and a trend gained popularity in the early 20th century, when its positive effects on the state of the human organism, in terms of both physical and emotional/psychosocial health, were practically and theoretically determined. Modern medicine today mentions in all studies that natural and alternative treatments in a huge percentage of cases can have very noticeable effects, both respecting the prevention and the treatment of various diseases. Medical yoga is extremely appreciated in this context among doctors, especially as it helps to develop a positive state in the individual not only by treating the disease but also by eliminating psycho-emotional blockages that are often the main causes of a disease.

The advanced state of the pharmaceutical industry has led to the fact that we can find drugs on the market today that can eliminate most disorders. Precisely because we are accustomed to eliminating all our discomforts by swallowing tablets, in recent years the number of drug addicts has grown enormously. In order to prevent this scenario, alternative methods of treatment are increasingly popular, of which music therapy is particularly important.

This time we will shift the focus to another fundamental type of conflict. There is only one person in the world who can have a bigger impact on us than anybody else, one person who makes things complicated and who struggles to arrive at the best decisions and choices, and that person is ourselves. Intrapersonal conflicts may be even more harmful and difficult to resolve than interpersonal ones. And in this article we’ll try to learn more about it.

What is memory? An immeasurable depth, full of the most individual and unique memories based on our experience; or a system, a mechanism like a hard disk, which can be programmed and filled with data? Whatever it is, memory is unique and requires an individual approach to its exploration, organization, usage, and perfection.
