• Hi Emmanuel, I thought this was an interesting article to read because of the statistics on the demographic in NYC. I did not expect there to be so much more minorities in the population compared to white people, so when I saw that only 30% of the population is white I was surprised. Another part I liked was that you gave your take on the topic…[Read more]

  • Hi Keury, I think that this article is very unique because not a lot of people want to talk about religion because it is a sensitive topic. I personally think that the religions practiced today are so different because of how much history is in each one. Religion has been around for thousands of years, so each one has had time to make traditions…[Read more]

  • Hello Timothy, I very much enjoyed your article Global Warming Threats. I thought your link to more information on the greenhouse effect was very helpful because that term constantly gets thrown around in these arguments, so getting an in-depth look on it was good support for your article. One thing I would like to see from you is more detail on…[Read more]

  • Hello Enzo, I thought that this article’s arrangement was very well thought out. Most articles that discuss underage drinking have the same content as your first two paragraphs, but I thought your line “I believe we need to be against underage drinking but realize that many are gonna to do it anyways, so they should be aware of how it affects you,…[Read more]

  • Hello Ben, I very much enjoyed your article Milky Milky Yum Yum Yum. One point that I found interesting was how you talked about the horrible conditions that cows live in to produce more milk.. It is a well known fact that farming is often cruel to the animals that produce food for us, but your point “the world’s demand for milk has risen at the s…[Read more]

  • The article ‘benefits of Medical Marijuana” explains the benefits of making marijuana legal for medical purposes. It’s major claim is that marijuana is a safe and effective alternative drug to opioids, which

      Hi Dominic!
      I thought that this article was very interesting. I liked how you explained both viewpoints nice and clearly and offered the sources in your article. I, too, agree with what you are saying about medical marijuana and how “it is less harmful and just as effective as opioids and other drugs.” In your second paragraph, you talk about how hard it is to legalize it because it is still classified a schedule 1 drug. I have been learning about this in my AP Gov class. We are discussing the Gonzalez v Raich case and I think you would find it very interesting because it deals with this topic. Here is the link to the case if you want to check it out: https://www.oyez.org/cases/2004/03-1454 Basically what happened was marijuana was legal in California so these two ladies grew it, but the federal government destroyed it because it is technically illegal because it is classified as a schedule 1 dug. I feel like this pertains to your argument because it talks about how hard it truly is legalizing marijuana because of the implications that the federal government has put into place. I enjoyed reading this though!
      Sincerely,
      Ella

  • Hi Connor, I really like this outlook on what being an American means and how the common idea has clear flaws. It seems like every time I read news comparing America to other countries in the world, the consensus is that America is the best country and everyone else should try to be like us. On the other hand, when I read news about events within…[Read more]

  • Hi Stella, for the most part I agree with your argument and think that you brought up some very good points about why the system of standardized tests has flaws. I don’t agree with your idea that grades sufficiently tell colleges how smart a student is or how well they can perform in school. One of the easiest classes I have taken in high school…[Read more]
