• As high schoolers approaching college many of us are worried about paying the cost of tuition. College tuition is undeniably going up every single year. Students are struggling more and more to pay the cost for

      Alex, I completely agree with your post. As a high school senior, I have been stressed out about paying for college and have been looking for ways to pay for college. I wish it were cheaper :(. I found this link (https://vittana.org/19-should-college-be-free-pros-and-cons) talking about the pros and cons of free college. Thanks! Have a great night!


  • Nahum,

    The statistics you shared in your post a quite shocking. Especially that, “law Enforcement Killed 90 Oakland Residents Since 2000, And 74 Percent Were Black”. Racism, while less serious than that of the 1700s, is still a very big issue in society. It is sad to see racism leading to the death of so many individuals. Police brutality…[Read more]

  • Ellie,

    The Australian fires are a heart breaking thing. I didn’t realize just how much they were affecting Australia and even more so how much they were affecting other countries neighboring Australia. The line, “Skyrocketing temperatures and shifting winds makes it impossible to breathe and see not only in Australia but neighboring countries…[Read more]

  • Manuel,
    The idea of building areas in which skaters can go in Oakland is a great idea. It is not an uncommon thing to ban skateboarders around city areas. People tend to associate skateboards with disrespectful kids who vandalize everything. Even though this stereotype isn’t always true, it is one that is very real. That is why I think the…[Read more]

  • Dominic,
    In today’s society, the topic of kids being negatively affected by violent games is commonly addressed. The statistic that,”60% of boys and 40% of girls in middle school that has played or watched a violent video game are bound to bully, fight, or have aggression” is one that is quite surprising. I believe that video games can indeed…[Read more]

  • Chris,
    This is an extremely interesting article. I used to live in silence. I was a super shy kid who just didn’t ever end up talking to people. However recently I have found a passion for music. I almost always have music playing or I am playing my own music. I play in two bands and I have found that it acts as my form of expression or…[Read more]

  • Lucky,
    I can tell that you clearly have an interest in enlisting. I have an uncle in the military, special forces to be exact, and he talks about how the military was the best thing that ever happened to him. Before joining he was in a very bad place, dealing with a lot of problems. He always talks about how the military and it’s strict…[Read more]

  • Kaya,
    I too feel that it is a necessity to get good sleep. We as teenagers should be getting between eight and ten hours of sleep per night according to https://www.sleepfoundation.org/articles/teens-and-sleep. I believe that reading this article could help broaden your knowledge on the lack of sleep amongst teens. The line, “When a student…[Read more]

  • Luis,
    I think that you have some valid ideas. I personally believe that we can test on animals as it benefits our own health in the future. I assume when you say, “I believe it’s human nature to eat meat because we need to be able to get protein from meat and its good for us” that you believe we can eat meat. I also don’t think that there is a…[Read more]


    The points that are made in this article a very valid. Everybody can agree that school and family, among other things can be stressful. I really like that you support teachers really working to help students with that stress in a goal to help those susceptible to mental health issues. The point you make about how, “it’s important t…[Read more]

    • Estimado alexander:

      Estoy asombrado por tu comentario de “The Ongoing Argument-Guns” porque aprendí sobre las armas que pueden ser un poco peligrosas. Yo soy de mexico pero vivo en california. Una frase que escribistes que me gusto fue donde dice “John Malcolm and Jennifer Marshall argue that gun control is more or less a fruitless attempt to try and prevent violence¨ porque habla sobre las armas y sobre cómo son peligrosas para algunas personas que la usan para un mal uso. Otra cosa que pienso que no les deberian de dejar las armas a las personas peligrosas porque pueden aser un asesinato en cualquier momento. Gracias por tu comentario espero que sigas poniendo mas para seguir comentando continuación porque quiero seguir aprendiendo más sobre las armas porque son peligrosas.


  • Ashton, immediately upon reading your article I became interested in your project. I started to do some research on laminated glass and I found that the glass when broken will hold together rather than shatter. Personally I feel this is beneficial for a building regardless of bird collision rates. Perhaps if you were to try and get more…[Read more]

  • Maggie, I really feel as though your article seeks to provide valid information from both sides. Obviously the answer to the mass shooting epidemic is no easy solution, and people will continue to disagree on the matter far into the future. Your article provided views from both sides of the argument as well as statistics to support both sides.…[Read more]
