What are people's thoughts on euthanasia?
I am for euthanasia as the very last personal choice. Our society has advanced in allowing people to make their own personal choices, But hasn't (in my opinion) allowed for us to make one of the most personal decisions. In our lives we face medical problems and our doctors give us all of our options and tell us the risks of all of them, and allows us to make our decision. I don't see why this topic should be treated any differently. And in regards to cultural and religious reasons against euthanasia those are once again personal beliefs that should only affect personal choices, but if you want to know more about how culture and religion affect peoples' feelings on euthanasia I suggest you study thantology (a field of science that deals with death and peoples' feelings towards death and how to comfort them)

"Arabic Spring" would it change something in the world?
I agree with you while it is good that the Arab People are trying to get rights and protections every human deserves, but when the dust settles they might not get the rights they so galliantly fought for. Just like in Iraq when we removed Saddam Hussein from power we didn't really help the people as much as we could have. Instead we opened the door to tribal warfare. In the end there is no way to be certain what will happen, but have hope that sense this movement was started by the people that will refuse to allow more dictators to rule now that they have seen their own strength.

Are search engines reducing our capability to memorize?
Columbia University psychologist Betsy Sparrow published her paper, “Google Effects on Memory: Cognitive Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips.”, that states that people do remember less when they know they can find it again on the web. But they do remember where they can find the information again. So I understand it as we aren't loosing our ability to remember information but developing strategies to make sure we don't forget information and lose it forever by storing the location in out mind and bookmarking its significance.

Should everyone of us fear the moment when he achieves his biggest dream ? How will his life be after achieving the ultimate dream?
I recently read the novel The Alchemist and one of the main topics is the four obstacles we face while chasing our dreams. The last obstacle is fear of success. The author,Paulo Coelho, talks about fear of relizing our dreams stops us from reaching our full potential. In fact one character never fulfills his dream because he is afraid he will have nothing to live for after he succeeds, and that life will have lost the sense of meaning. Paulo shows that this is a minor thing in the grand scheam of life by inflicting these fears on the main character for only a moment. The fears are soon forgotten and the main character, Santiago, is soon chasing his dreams once again. I believe we should be like Santiago, and only worry about fear of achieving our dreams for a moment and spend the rest of our lives achieving them. In the end I believe that if we achieve our dreams life won't be constant regret. But a journey that makes our lives worth living.
