Othello, Recording a passage

Desdemona 1.3.208-218   These lines from Othello are Desdemona talking to Brabantio. I found reading the passage was a little difficult, because I tend to not speak the way that traditional Shakespeare wrote. Also, I hate listening to myself speak, so figuring out if I did a good job or not was a little difficult. Print this page. Author Carter

Zoos aren’t cool

Zoos are horrible for not just animals, but for humans too. Zoos put humans and animals into contact in far too many situations that wouldn’t have occurred naturally.

Zoos aren’t cool (pt 3)

The most compelling argument against zoos is the lack of space that zoos provide for animals. Compared to the wild, lions and tigers have 18,000 times less space inside of zoos, and polar bears have 1,000,000 times less space. A study was conducted in zoos across our nation on lion behavior. Lions were monitored throughout the day to see what […]

While it is ideal that one day there will no longer be animals in captivity, that is somewhat of a lofty aspiration. It is almost impossible to go back and repair all the […]

Zoos aren’t cool

Zoos are a great place to go for a nice fun day in the sun. You get to see all kinds of animals that otherwise you wouldn’t be able to see in your day to day lives. So all in all, going to the zoo is a pretty cool experience. For the humans. Animals in captivity may appear on the […]

Air Quality in Salt Lake City

When Winter rolls around, skiing is usually the first thing that comes to mind in Utah. But unfortunately Winter also brings around something not so enticing. The inversion in Utah is as bad as anywhere else in the country during our winter months. It’s often times impossible to see anywhere when looking out over the valley. In Utah, we suffer […]

Does technology help learning?

With our school’s recent policy that requires students to bring a laptop to school, I have wondered if this helps or hinders our ability to learn. While on one hand it makes information instantaneously available, it also makes distractions a lot easier to access. In any given class there are at least a handful of people playing a game. And […]

Caffeine isn’t the issue

With how much soda I tend to drink on a daily basis, I wonder how much soda is too much. I have always heard that too much caffeine can be bad for you, whether its detrimental to your body or it just doesn’t let you sleep. I wanted to know if caffeine is the problem or the other contents in […]
