Anti-Social Media

ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA by Elena Greco February 20, 2021 An awful lot of us have trouble with social media. We spend an inordinate amount of time surfing and scrolling. We can’t seem to stop using it, even when we want to, even after we’ve declared we’re done with it. Why? Because the tech companies who bring you these products design them…

Accountability

ACCOUNTABILITY by Elena Greco April 28, 2020 What do you think of when you hear the word accountability?

Religion: Who Needs It?

Religion:  Who Needs It? by Elena Greco August 30, 2016 I’m going to have to say something once again that I know will not be very popular.  It’s about this religion thing.
