Humanitarian Crisis

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The thing that amazes me most about how this humanitarian crisis at the border is unfolding is the fact that so many of my fellow citizens can be so cold-hearted. Many would rather turn their backs on these poor kids than to help them. When did we become that country?

Israel vs Palestine

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Violence in the Middle East between Israelis and Palestinians is not a new thing. It is hard for me to understand why they can't just all get along. Both sides are guilty of inciting violence. But both sides would also benefit form some sort of peaceful solution. Why is it always so elusive?

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Despite being a solid football, baseball and hockey town, Pittsburgh was not immune to World Cup Fever. The question is, will the interest in soccer fade away or continue building among Pittsburgh sports fans?

Facebook Test

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Back in 2012, Facebook conducted some sort of creepy secret psychological test on unsuspecting users by changing the content mix in their feed to show more negative or positive posts and then tracking user responses. My guess is they wanted to see how effectively they could mess with our minds and then sell that ability to advertisers.
