Hello guys, a long time ago, there was a city called Troy, which was located in modern Turkey. According to Homer, in 1200 B.C. an alliance of Greek city-states had waged war against Troy, in order to get back the beautiful Helen that was the wife of Menelaus, the king of Sparta. Helen was abducted by Prince Paris of Troy, because Aphrodite had promised to become his wife. Some Greek kingdoms had allied, in order to attack Troy and to liberate Helen. There was a long bloody war between the Greeks and the Trojans, but eventually the first got the upper hand by using the infamous Trojan horse.Continue reading “The discovery of ancient Troy”

What is it that makes them so attached to these stories? Let’s have a look at the main reasons that people work on that stuff.Continue reading “Why do people believe in conspiracy theories?”

Hello, I know that this is not the happiest topic you can talk about, but you must have thought about it at least once in your life. Death is our fate. We are all going to leave this world one day.

Your life will either end for good or it will continue in a different way. These are the only plausible scenarios about death. Let’s have a look at the most famous scenarios about the afterlife.Continue reading “Death: The end of the road or the beginning of something new?”
Hello guys, this world is fragile and it is very flawed. The current situation is a delicate balance that has to be maintained. If the world is sank into debauchery, it will not survive for a long time. Some people are needed to keep the world at its feet. Thankfully enough, these people exist and they have been doing a very good job on this matter since the dawn of humanity. They are the shadowy heroes that work in silence. The golden creatures of this planet. I’m talking of course about the good people.Continue reading “The saviors of the world”

Hello guys, most of you must have heard of those things but there are some things that you might not know about them. Many people go to psychologists and psychiatrists to solve their problems. However there are some major differences between those two professions. Let’s have a look at them
Before we begin, I have to tell you that I’m neither a psychologist or a psychiatrist and I might make a few mistakes in this article. I will explain very crudely the differences that these two types of people have. First of all, a psychiatrist has studied medicine for years before becoming a psychiatrist. Not only does he know things on human psychology, but he has medicinal knowledge too, and this is a major advantage. He can explain what’s going on in your head. Some time ago I had sleeping issues and it was a very hard time of my life. I went to a psychiatrist and she was able to explain to me what was going on and she had even helped me with the issue that I had. Since she had a medicinal background, she was able to give me some good advice on the problem that I had. The psychologists on the other hand, have expertise only in the psychological field (Unless they have studied something else too). They don’t have any medicinal knowledge.
Also, some pills have to be prescribed from doctors, you are not allowed to buy them on your own. A psychiatrist can prescribe medication, while a psychologist can’t. If for example, you have a lot of stress and you need Xanax to fight it off, you can only go to a psychiatrist to prescribe you some pills. These are the two major differences of psychiatrists and psychologists. The bottom line, is that if you have a serious problem like depression or a lot of stress you should go to a psychiatrist to deal with this matter. If you have a minor issue you will go to a psychologist about this one. If for example, you have issues with your relationship you could go to a psychologist to talk about these problems. He might be able to help you with that sort of stuff.
Of course you could combine them. You could see both a psychiatrist and a psychologist. They could help you effectively if you have a serious issue to deal with. You must however find some good professionals in case you have a big problem to deal with.
