  • Anna, I think this is a very interesting topic and I would love to hear more about this. I had never thought of the idea that the glorification of serial killers would have such a negative effect of the families, but that is a very important thing to consider. I particularly liked when you said that “Newspapers have killers faces on the cover,…Read More

  • Maxim, this was a very interesting post and I think you raised a lot of good questions. I liked the way you backed up everything you said with research because it really helped you get your point across. I particularly like the research that said that “the top 10% owned 76% of the wealth, while the bottom 50% held only 1% of the wealth.” I think…Read More

  • Patricia,
    This is a very interesting post and I think it is even more relevant with the recent admissions scandal. I especially liked the way you talked about the economic benefits of college and cited data for that. You used a lot of good examples to get your points across like when you said that ” Harvard degrees are valuable because there is…Read More

      This is a very interesting post and very informative. I didn’t know much about this topic but now I am very intrigued and want to research it more.

    • Amy, I think this is so interesting! I think it’s so fascinating how ceramics has played such a large role throughout history, even though post people don’t tend to normally focus on it.

    • Amy, this is such a fascinating piece of writing and such a cool topic. I did not know how much of an impact ceramics has made throughout history. I have taken a ceramics class at judge along with at my old school and there is still so much I don’t know! I look forward to hearing more about ceramics.

    • I love the topic of ceramics and you seem very passionate about it. I know that people do ceramics because it is art and can be calming, but I never considered that having something tangible to work with could be a form of meditation or therapy. I would love to hear about different kinds of pottery from you in the future such as what different clays are used for and what kinds of things can be made through ceramics.

    • Amy,
      I know very little about ceramics, so this was very interesting for me to read. I found it fascinating that there are emotional benefits to making pottery and other forms of ceramics. It would certainly be compelling to investigate more into how ceramics have helped people center themselves and become more grounded. Here is a link to an article about pottery and its effects on depression that I think you would enjoy reading.
