That is, poverty seems to perpetuate poverty.

Famous TV and film moustaches

It's Movember time!

3 reasons some people cannot change their lives while others can

Most of us are able to transition from one stage of our lives to the next relatively easily. However, there are many people who struggle with change and prefer to stay in their comfort zones.

Discipline is a good thing, so long as it's not always about punishment.
