• Nyleeah,

    Nice post. This is a persisting issue with no clear solution, but you make strong points. It will always be difficult to understand what someone else really goes through, but many Americans are unknowingly in similar situations to their fellow citizens. This is a country that was founded on the binding of cultures under a common roof,…[Read more]

    Dear Fred,

    Nice post. This is a highly pressing issue that everyone should be aware of and acting on. Net Neutrality defends our ability to spread our own ideas and view others’. By allowing internet service providers to prioritize and bottleneck information we’re giving free reign to these companies for the pushing of desired information as well…[Read more]

  • Dear Deepu,

    Really interesting post. I would agree with all of the points that you made, however this issue is a complicated one to tackle due to the systems we already have in place throughout the country. It would be difficult to adopt a knew schooling/student evaluating system nationwide that would work as well as the one we have now, even…[Read more]

  • Dear Fred,
    Nice post. I really like the angle you took at analyzing the influences surrounding those who commit such acts. This hits one of the apparent roots of the problem, something that we can all do in our lives to help people feel included and cared for. The line “kids that shoot up schools are not loners, the misconception of them being…[Read more]

    • Ed,
      This is a really cool topic. It is cool to see something written about something that you see in today’s culture of the world. Those companies that are apart of this hypebeast culture are influencing the culture of the youth today. It shows the “cool” ways to dress. I really liked how you wrote this article it was very good.

    • This post is interesting to me Ed because the issues involving hypebeasts and the changes we are seeing today go beyond just the topic on the surface of brand recognition and the changes in fashion, it reaches into a deeper issue of social acceptance within our youth and street culture. This issue also delves into looking at what youth will do for social acceptance and how what is seen as cool to be reached by our youth, with some kids spending everything they have just to be accepted by their peers.

  • Hi Walter,

    Air pollution is a growing problem along with other pollution issues due to rising populations. A major producer of air pollution in major cities is the toxins produced by mass amounts of drivers. However there are many things we can do to cut back on it. Here’s a good list of proposed solutions to start off with:…[Read more]

  • Dear Bobby,

    Interesting write up, I would agree with you that the top charts today are seemingly bland compared to what they’ve been in the past. Popular music has over time moved into easier listening and catchy repetition, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the music of today is “terrible” altogether. I’d love to see you analyze the…[Read more]

  • As high school senior, I’ve seen and performed my fair share of procrastination throughout high school. Sometimes it’s little assignments, sometimes it’s a paper that decides your grade for the quarter, eithe

    • hello! This was very interesting to read, and also incredibly relatable. I am too a senior in high school, and I find myself procrastinating all the time. all the time. I find myself staying up the night before a big test, cramming information into my brain. I too wonder if procrastination is something everybody has always “suffered with,” or if it is just our generation. Possibly because the pressure of school and getting into college has increased, that may have caused our procrastination to increase– just a thought.

    • Dear Ed,

      I am interested in your post because I could relate to it. Starting mt freshman year I would wait until the last minute to get something done, whether it is an assignment or studying for a test. I am now in my junior year and I now noticed that it is much easier to get stuff done earlier. For me, it was not worth staying up to 12 or 1pm to get something done, I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t get it done. It makes me feel much better when I finish school work early.


    • Dear, Ed
      I agree with you that procrastinating is an issue to teenagers as well as me. One reason I say this is because I know, I procrastinate a lot even my teachers tell me, I’m in my freshman year and I always wait to the last minute and end up sleeping at 1 or 2 in the morning and I end up failing. Procrastinating is extremely relatable to me and I wish it wasn’t an issue for me and I didn’t expected that other people where procrastinating too but now that I have read this I know I’m not the only person going through this issue and it got me really interesting. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, it really caught my attention and I really like how you share something really relatable to teenagers.
      Sincerely, Karyme <3

  • Ammar,

    great post, really cool to see writing coming from an author who really cares about the subject.

  • Hi Montana, interesting post, however I think adding some more sources and concrete information would greatly help your argument. There seems to be a lot you could expand on.

    Dear Sierra,

    Interesting post, I fully agree with you that stress management is a vital skill in today’s world. People’s lives today arguably involve more conflicting stressors than ever before, causing stress management and reduction to be a bigger issue than we’ve seen in the past. Many different methods can be employed to help manage stress,…[Read more]

  • I know that depending on global warming trends, rising temperatures will cause difficulties in producing base layers of snow for resort and backcountry skiing. This climate change causes both altered snowfall

    • Ed, I love your article! I feel that a lot of times, news will not cover this topic because there are more pressing issues with global warming, but I feel that it is very important. A lot of people take snow for granted, and lord knows I do since I live in Michigan. Where I live, we did not get a lot of snow last winter and I always wonder if it is because of global warming. I could not imagine having no snow though! That would mean no sledding, skiing, or the like. It would also be a problem monetarily, but maybe because less places would have snow, the places that do would make a lot more money off of snow related activities like the Winter Olympics and casual snow sports? How would you get affected if you no longer had snow where you lived? Thank you for your post.

    • Dear :Ed
      I am pleased with your post, “What will Utah skiing be like 50 years from now?” because I’ve always wanted to go skiing or snowboarding and utah seems like a good place to go once I start traveling. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “A 2014 New York Times article discusses the effects of lower snowfall on the skiing industry, making the claim that “between 1999 and 2010 low snowfall years have cost the industry $1 billion and up to 27,000 jobs.” I think this is interesting because I didn’t know the amount of snow can mean so much that it can put people out of jobs.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I did learn something new reading your post and that was interesting.

    • Ed,
      I really enjoyed reading your post. I am a skier myself and I have never really thought about what it will be like in the future until after reading your post. I really liked the sentence of when you were describing the different numbers that might be able to host the Olympics. That is really crazy to think about how that in the future there might not be a lot of places to ski anymore. I think that if our world starts to get a little bit warmer every year, the skiing places might not be able to have enough of the real snow anymore and will have to use a bunch more fake snow. It’s gonna be different because we won’t be able to have our real snow that we are used to having and I don’t know if more and more people will want to stop skiing because they don’t want to ski on fake snow. What would you do if there was only fake snow available to ski on and no real snow, would you still ski even though there is only fake snow available?
