• Hi Jerrilee,

    I enjoyed reading your article and I found your idea of an American to be very similar to my own. I thought your incorporation of another article really helped your article and strengthened your argument as a whole.

  • Hi Koji, I found this article to be very interesting but I think there were a few things left out. While overall crime rates have fallen over the past years, the amount of mass shootings has drastically increased in the past 15 years. This is in large part due to the ease of access to assault and semi-automatic rifles on the market. Here are a…[Read more]

    The 2016 election will go down as one of, if not the most negatively covered elections in American history. Both Clinton and Trump were covered with overwhelming negativity. Most of the articles published

    Jalyn,

    I found this to a very interesting issue that doesn’t seem to be talked about very often. This is an issue that, while it may not effect a huge amount of people, it is still a very prevalent issue for those it does effect. I liked the way you explained your point of view on the subject and expressed your feelings on the topic.

  • Bobby,

    I found this to be very interesting and your rating system to be extremely in depth. I agreed with manny of the points you made regarding the rating system and liked your examples of movies that fit the rating system. This allowed me to picture the types of movies that would be considered terrible and the ones that are fantastic. I noticed…[Read more]

  • Shane,

    I found this to be very interesting. The concept of time travel has only been shown in sci-fi movies and tv shows and is depicted as a fantasy. But I’ve always wondered whether or not time travel will ever be possible. Although finding a real way to time travel won’t be relevant for years to come, I think you offered dome great insight on…[Read more]

  • Mario,

    I found your box to be very interesting. I thought your creation of the car and the sideshows was very creative. Overall, I thought your box is very creative and well done.

  • Alejandro,

    I found your background to be very interesting and shadow box to be very interesting. I thought your creation of the soccer field was very creative and looked really good. I also enjoyed reading about the different things from Mexico that you put in your box.

  • Dogs have accompanied mankind for thousands of years. They are known to be “man’s best friend”, helping their human counterparts with daily tasks and offering love to to their owners. But I have always wonde

    • Hi!
      I loved reading this piece! From a young age, I always begged my parents to get a dog and they day that they finally said yes was one of the best days ever. I have noticed that as my dog has grown, he is able to read emotions more easily and can tell when a member of my family is upset or happy. This past year, my mom has had a lot of stress in her life and our dog notices and will go sit by her or even just follow her around the house to keep her company. Dogs have so much to offer with helping physical health and emotional health.

      Thank you,
      Shenika

    • I am satisfied with your post because it describes how dogs are a man’s best friend. It states specific facts that help support your claim. I learned that dogs offer more than just emotional benefits, but also physical benefits. This post makes me want to have a dog.

    • I really like this post because dogs have evole with humans over the year and is truly man’s best friend and the different types of breeds and sizes for people and their always will be from now and and years to come.I learned that dogs offer more than just emotional benefits, but also physical benefits. This post makes me want to have a dog

    • I am very interested in this post because my myself do believe dogs are a mans bestfriend. One reason why is because dogs are one of the most loyal animals around honestly even more loyal then people these days you can always count on your dogs cause they are always gonna be there when you need them.
      I really liked when you shared this ” To go along with the physical benefits, dogs offer many emotional benefits. They can help comfort people who are getting over a death, reduce stress, reduce anxiety and feel safer, and lift their owner’s mood making them feel less lonely. After learning about all these benefits, no wonder dogs are considered a man’s best friend. “because this shows us how many things dogs can really do for use they are living and have souls just like use humans do and feel things like how we do. I honestly agree with you one hundred percent that dogs are a mans bestfriend.

  • Lily, I found this article to be interesting. I think many of the points that you brought up also can apply to many other countries around the world. Countries like Switzerland, Canada, and Denmark all share similar freedoms and many have more freedoms than America. Freedom allows us to function properly as a society and make the world a better place.

  • Tomas I thought this was a very interesting problem that doesn’t seem to be brought up very often. Not only is this construction a problem to farmers, its also a huge expense to the government, costing roughly $1.7 billion dollars. Here is an article that goes a little more in depth on the issue.…[Read more]

  • Aleah, I found this article to be intriguing. Community College can be a great option for many graduating high school students, but many of these colleges aren’t well equipped to help the students’ future. Here is an article that may help with solutions on the topic.…[Read more]

  • Dear Jesus,

    I found this topic very interesting and current. Racism has always been a part of American history and doesn’t seem to be leaving anytime soon. Although many of us would love to see racism to go, it will take a country wide effort to overcome racism.

  • Shane, this is a very interesting topic to me as well. There are so many planets that are in the “habitable zone”, but we still are unsure about other life forms. And if we ever do find other life forms, they are most likely going to be completely different than the life on Earth

  • In today’s world, there are millions of people that suffer with phobias, and many feel like these fears are completely arbitrary. From a fear of spiders to a fear of being buried alive on accident and waking u

    • This is something that I have always been very interested in. While I personally don’t have any phobias, I know people that do and this really shines a light on that. I especially liked the part where you talked about how phobias can develop from siblings or parents while growing up because I had never thought of that before. The idea of developing a phobia midway into your life is something I have never thought about. I’d love to hear more.

    • Alex, I have never actually thought of why we fear what we do and where our phobias come from, so I found the topic of this post very interesting. I guess it does make sense that experiences you had as a child could effect your views on something, also since you grow up and learn from just watching your parents I understand how if they have a fear for something you would grow up learning that its something to be afraid of. I think it would be really interesting to find more information on why we have random fears as well, so thank you for introducing me to this idea.

    • Alex, I think this is really interesting. I’ve never thought about where fear comes from so I like how you took the time to explain because maybe it will help make more people aware. When I think about fear I normally just think about how I have them and now why so this gave me insight into where it comes from. I’ve noticed how we pick up phobias from those around us because see how I have a lot of the same fears as my parents. I also agree with Shane, I’d love to hear more.

    • Dear Alex,
      I’m interested in your post “The Fear Behind Phobias” because, I always wondered how and why people had fears of things that are likely never to happen. But because, of you and your source I finally understand. Lines like, “arise from a stressful or traumatic event that occurred in their childhood. Phobias can also be learnt from a child’s parents or older siblings while growing up.” I think that pretty much summarizes my belief of how I think fear happens. And how fear is such a strong feeling that can happen strictly through 1’s experiences. Your post reminds me of my personal fear of snakes as my mom shares the same fear either that or I feel uncomfortable around slithery things. With that being said, Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I feel like I can relate to it through the experiences I’ve been through and who I’ve associated with.
