    Concussion Rates in High School Compared to College

    • I agree with you, Dominic. I also believe that the reason for lower concussion rates for people in high school to college is because as you grow in a certain sport you tend to figure out shortcuts and have more skill. Some kids in high school could also be taking the sport for fun and not trying to look into the behind the scenes of the sport and are more prone to concussions.

    • I agree with you, Dominic. I think this is very prevalent in society today and head trauma is a major issue. Concussions are a big deal because they can lead to all sorts of problems such as CTE and other major issues. Thank you for sharing this information.Here’s an article you may want to look at:

    • I think that plastic has become a huge issue and this post perfectly describes the problems and difficulties we will face with this excess amount of plastic. I think this was very insightful and had important information fully explains the problem of plastic

    • Dominic, great job bringing a controversial topic to light and giving a good explanation on it. Pollution is very bad for the environment and in my opinion we need to find a way around creating pollution. Overall, awesome job!

    • I love the concern you have about this topic, in fact it is a topic I feel very passionate about. “An estimated 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the oceans every year, while only 1% to 2% of it gets recycled.” This has stuck to my head an I am astonished by this stat. This goes to show you all the flaws our society has. We are not only harming ourselves, but our future generations. We have to bring change before it is too late.

    • Hey Dominic I thought your topic was very important. Today we use so much plastic it is unbelievable, we have huge piles of plastic just floating in the water. None of its good, water bottles, caps, etc. anything that is not biodegradable will be on the earth for 100’s of years. Here is a link to a similar topic. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/06/plastic-planet-waste-pollution-trash-crisis/

    • 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
