Are we all Interconnected? View Comment

  • March 30, 2017

Joshua, This is a very interesting way to think about how we all interact and how we treat one another. I like how you bring up that if we are all interconnected we must be empathetic in order to be a more successful society and without everyone participating we cannot...

Sarah, This sounds like a very interesting paper. Dispelling the idea that immigration increases crime rates right off the bat is very effective, because I think that is the strongest argument against immigration. Also, most papers discussing this would likely not do anything more than discuss why it's unfair, but...

Kyra, This day was an incredibly powerful one. I think it really showed everyone how heavily we do rely on immigrants and that our country is made of them. Your questions at the end are certainly ones we have to consider if our country continues down its current path.

Jessica, This must be a very interesting topic to research. I think the fact that someone conducted the study about the dogs in the dark is quite funny. I know that my dog definitely would have been one to eat the treat in the dark. Good luck with your...

Benefits of Being Vegan View Comment

Mayree, I am also looking at veganism and its growing popularity. I think I also read that article regarding the man who struggled with dairy. I am in agreement with you that a plant-based diet can be beneficial to some, however I did read an article about a mom who...

I agree completely with what you are saying. Specifically in regards to the mascot, I think so long as we are not using the Chieftan in an offensive manner, it is acceptable to continue using this mascot. I would say it is even a compliment that it is being...

Celia, I think this is a very thoughtful post. I have never thought of some of the points that you have made. Trigger warnings are an important part of recovery and I think it is important to keep using them. While some would argue that we are too sensitive, they...

I have never thought about zip codes being a determining factor or defining factor regarding level of education and educational opportunities, so I thought this was a very interesting point that you brought attention to. Additionally, I agree strongly with you that this issue must not go unaddressed. We...

Niall, I think you have brought up some very real and very frightening possible scenarios that our country could face in the future. I, too am worried about the rash decisions that Trump might make. More specifically, the issue of global warming that you brought up scares me while in...

I think your analysis of one word so deeply is very creative and inspiring. I particularly liked how you said, "this word sounds the same as its meaning." I would not have thought about that on my own, but now that you say it, I completely agree. Thank you...

Dear Kevin, While I understand that abortion is a controversial topic, I don't think it is fair to make the claim that 30% of women "have committed murder" by the age of 45. I think you have made you position on the issue quite clear, but it seems rather judgmental....

Mason, You raise a very interesting point. I agree completely with the fact that our society today, and especially the younger generation, is driven by reward. While I think it is important to be rewarded for hardwork, I think our culture has reached an all-time high in passing out rewards....

More sleep please View Comment

Anna, This post is incredibly relatable. As highschoolers, we are often sleep-deprived and see the effects that come from this sleep deprivation. I think the suggestion to start school later is an excellent idea. As with all changes to society, I think we would be able to adapt and adjust...

Hi Caleb, While I do agree that people have become sensitive to certain issues and refrain from making comments that could offend certain comments, I do not agree with some of the claims you have made. I think it is a bit harsh to say that it is "stupid...

I think this is a very creative way of addressing such an important issue in today's society. I especially like the point you make about how we are not fixing the problem by dressing more conservatively and checking our drinks, but rather pushing it onto someone else. I appreciate...

How do chameleons change color? View Comment

This is super cool! I always thought that chameleons changed depending upon their surroundings. I think it's interesting that they actually change the structure of their skin.

Please wait...
