    • Dear Emmanuela,
      I am impressed about everything that you have stated on this. I have learned a lot about what rap music. There were many facts that I didn’t know but now I do. One sentence that stands out to me is, .”Many perceive the lyrics to have different meanings and even metaphors within the lines representing something much deeper,a bigger picture than whats heard from the outside.” This shows how many rap songs have different meanings. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I really want to know more.

    • Hi Emmanuela,
      I really liked your approach to finding the deeper meaning in rap lyrics. I listen to rap as well and I like it because I’m able to find the deeper meaning in it’s lyrics. On some levels it can relate to your own life when they rap about the pain and heartache some of them have to go through on a day to day basis. I especially like the part where you talked about rap being an escape for some, “Those who grew up in the ghetto rap acts as a form of a escape and in some cases even motivation to get out of their current situation.” It shows the other outlets rap can be used for. Here is a link to an article about raps impact in society I think you might like https://web.stanford.edu/class/e297c/poverty_prejudice/mediarace/socialsignificance.htm The Social Significance of Rap & Hip-Hop Culture. I really liked this articles significance and I hope to see more writing from you in the future.

    • Dear Emmanuela:

      I was very intrigued by your post, “How Does Technology Affect Our Day To Day Life?”, because you thoroughly explain your opinion. You also show evidence to support your claims. I was easily persuaded into believing what your opinion was and support it as well.
      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me “Orwell’s characters struggle with finding and settling to a place where there is not a way to be traced or tracked down.” I think this is cool because Orwell was actually trying to shy away from protection instead of accepting the fact of being watched 24/7.
      Thanks for your writing! I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your way of speaking was very mature and I never stopped reading once. Also, if you were to write on a different subject, I would probably be just as intrigued with it as well! Please continue to write more posts about different subjects, I look forward to it.

      Teresa.

    • Dear George,
      I am emotion with your post “How does Technology affect our days ,” because people really like to use technology and the government is watching at everything we the people like doing on our phones.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ It has acted almost as an addiction where it is incurable for it surrounds us in every aspect and in most cases is run by or even controlled by technology.I think this is adjective because people like using their phones and they are always being watched.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because today you wrote about technology and maybe next you will maybe write about how technology can change the world.

    • Emmanuela, I enjoyed reading your take on the legalization of prostitution. You have what can be an excellent argument. However, I think you need to do a little more research, cite your sources, and better use your evidence. For example, this is a great fact that supports your argument, “studies show that over 99 percent of females who are in the sex industry get an STD” however, I have no idea where this fact came from. Additionally, it is my understanding that depending on where one lives in the United States, prostitution is already legal to some degree.
      I agree with you that mandatory health checks, or even licensing workers in the prostitution industry would be a great way to stop the spread of STD’s. I would expand upon this in my argument, and well define the current laws regarding prostitution in the United States. So far you have an interesting take, and you just need to spend a little more time researching and defining your argument.

      Cheers!

      Will

    • This topic, along with many other topics outlawed, fall into the same category; if it were legalized, there’d be a lot less of it and the restrictions would allow breathing room for improvements and reform. A great topic. I applaud you!
