CSR_Fig2_Position-Your-Content-Team-for-Success-from-the-First-HireRarely anything incredible can be accomplished without motivation, either at an individual or group level. Motivation is a key ingredient for success. So, what does it really take to shape a highly motivated team? Leaders and managers wrestle with this question.

Keeping a motivated team can sometimes be hard especially if you do not take time to know your team. Often, some employers concentrate on the final results and forget the process that it takes to achieve those desired results.

Cybersecurity, Privacy and Awareness

cyber-security4We live in digital economies where information has become powerful asset to public and private institutions, nonprofit organizations and several other companies and institutions around the world.

Everyday, millions of computers online and websites get compromised and very few cyber incidents get reported. People exchanging information or carrying out businesses on computer networks are potentially at risk. Once you go online, get ready for cyber attacks. You have to be careful and cautious the way you use your computer data. Do not let your computer become vulnerable.

The Market of Fear


Recent terrorist attacks in Asia, Europe and Africa and the threads to some cities, like Rome, London and Washington DC – and most recently New York, have set the alarms of governments, security forces and intelligence agencies around the world, who have intensify the security measures in the ‘most vulnerable’ points, and have made public statements to send the message that everything is under control.

For its part, the media – both traditional and new one – constantly transmit information about attacks, new tracks, new targets and actions to track of those who threaten global peace and security. The message is loud and clear: we are in a global state of alert, in which national security and defense are the main dishes every day.



In the recent years many atheists and secular humanists have consistently made claims that religion is the number one cause of violence and war throughout the history of mankind. One of hate theism’s key cheerleaders, Sam Harris, says in his book The End of Faith that faith and religion are “the most prolific source of violence in our history.”

While there’s no denying that campaigns such as the Crusades and the Thirty Years’ War foundationally rested on religious ideology, it is simply incorrect to assert that religion has been the primary cause of war. Moreover, although there’s also no disagreement that radical Islam was the spirit behind 9/11 attacks, it is a fallacy to say that all faiths contribute equally where religiously-motivated violence and warfare are concerned.

The half-way mark

It is always interesting to look back through the time when a milestone is just around the corner. It will be soon six months into my Atlas Corps fellowship. And there is a lot to look back at and a lot to look forward to. It has been an ocean of new experiences for me. But particularly I want to briefly talk about how great it has been working with VaxTrac, my host organisation.

This peace of writing is a citation of my graduate thesis in Linguistics submitted to Sudan University of Science and Technology in 2015. As an activist and disability rights advocate, I am trying to make a reform in the way that the Sudanese community look at people with disabilities and in particular Deaf community.





#Islamophobia and #Homophobia
Tuesday, 17 November 2015

Starting my day with hearing about some woman with a gun hiding somewhere in the streets of DC, not far to where I work, and ending it with a great Email from our fellow Ernesto calling for non-Muslim fellows group in solidarity outside the internet with their fellow Atlas corps Muslim fellows, it is clear that the events across the Atlantic has affected us in DC, the US has also shuns Syrian refugees, . Prior to the Paris tragic events, we already encountered America’s Islamophobic face. A face that is familiar to those who are old enough to remember stories of Islamophobic hate attacks following September 11th, and even the Oklahoma shootings (which were not related to Muslim extremism). Small incidents of hate words being shouted at us in the buses and the Metros did make many of us uncomfortable, but they won’t break us.



When I had of the Paris attack my heart felt with pain and confusion, I asked myself this question IS THE WORLD GOING CRAZY OR IT’S THE EVILNESS OF THE PEOPLE and I know many of you have  asked yourselves this question several times.

The only way I can identify these incidents, is by politicizing them, as “hunger for power and superior identification” not remembering the ones who suffer due to this greed is the innocent people who even don’t know what is happening.

Why living overseas demands a change in mindset


   Born and raised in the southern neighbor country, this is my first time living in the U.S. Previously, I lived abroad and traveled across different nations. This is my passion, I love to discover new people, places, languages, dishes, smells, sky colors, textures, music, etc. That is why living in U.S. is just amazing. A super diverse population composes this country. To me, being immersed in a multicultural environment represents the opportunity to hold one of my favorite conversations: “cultural differences”. It is an interesting topic to explore and to understand other traditions, customs, and religious or moral beliefs. Or even more, to find out amazing or unexpected similarities between your hometown and a place you can´t even find on a map.

Radio, The Powerful Tool to Develop Rural Areas.

Every country has its own issue(s) to be addressed. Most of these issues such as high rate of illiteracy, poverty, poor governance, corruption, etc. directly affect the rural poor making them leave below poverty level. However, there is a solution to address these. I believe speaking to people about what affects them will pave way to address these. This requires skills on how the people can be informed and on how institutions can help solve these issues. To the best of my knowledge, “the people can’t be developed but should be informed with clear explanation of the importance of development in order to take part in the full implementation themselves”.
