  • Hi Madi, I agree that we should all allow ourselves to keep a distance from people we meet in order to protect ourselves and others from the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Hi Alex, I agree with your idea that vaccines should be tested. Many vaccines have side effects that could be lethal to some people. We should be more careful about when to give vaccines to the public. https://www.historyofvaccines.org/content/articles/vaccine-side-effects-and-adverse-events

    Should we wear face masks?

    As Coronavirus spreads in the world, people become more and more serious about it. How to protect ourselves and others from it has become a hot topic. Quarantine and social distancing worked well in the past few weeks, however,...

    • It is a great article, I think that most of American do not see this a improtant thing

    • This topic is still relevant doing since we, in the United States, are still going through the Covid-19 pandemic, while places like China and Australia were able to clear it up by following precautions. Even almost a year after Covid hit the U.S. people still refuse to believe its severity or even its existence. There was no way the whole country could spend a year in our homes, which is why we need to wear masks. The entire country can’t seem to get on board, especially those who don’t take the virus seriously, being the most probable people to have it and spread it. Places like California have a zero percent ICU capacity, making everyone, including those sustaining injuries outside of Covid, unable to get treatment. If people could wear their masks around other people, including parking lots and in the streets, they could save lives. Then, after some time and a limited number of vaccines, the need for masks on a daily basis will be gone. Many people weren’t thinking ahead back in April and many are still not thinking ahead now.

    • The idea of wearing a face mask shouldn’t even be a big topic of discussion, in my opinion. After China required people to wear masks, the infection rates went down. To keep yourself and others safe, everyone should wear a mask when going out and social distance. It’s not a difficult task and it’s definitely not political. We should respect the doctors and nurses that are putting their lives at risk by wearing a mask and socially distancing. Everyone wants this pandemic to be over and wearing masks would help.

    • People have yet to realize the severity of the virus; until recently it was untreatable and deadly at high rates to the elderly population. No one is on the same page in the United States, unlike places such as Japan where the majority of people never left work and the infected rates stayed low. This is due to people wearing masks and distancing. I believe a large issue is a founding principle of America, which is to stand up for what you believe and this is usually a good thing until you are going against science and the rest of the world. People need to take this more seriously and wear a mask for themselves and others.

  • Hi Gedeon,
    I partly disagree with the idea of adding the career aspect into the high school AP courses. It’s not feasible for most high school students to spend time on careers that they don’t even know if they are interested in or will be study in. Therefore, there will be less and less students going to place themselves into AP courses.…Read More

  • Hi Danny,
    I found this issue controversial because different states have different laws on death penalty. In my point of view, no one has the right to take others’ lives away, even that person had killed another person. It’s not a problem if death penalty is effective, but it’s a problem if we are right to do so.…Read More

    • I think suicide is a interesting topic. Awareness and signs around school only make it worse. When you expose people to suicides and talk about people killing themselves, it only places those thoughts in their minds. The solution is trying to see people going through these hard times, not necessarily avoiding the problem.

    • Dear Honam:

      I am surprised by your post, “Stop Suicide,” because I like your topic. This topic is very important for the tennegers.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Methods to reduce the suicide rate become important to these people. Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy are proven to be effective in preventing suicides.” I think this is great because there are people who can help people with their problems. They can vent and thus stop thinking about committing suicide.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like this topic. I like how people know about this topic and how other people they have this problem may know that there is a lot of help and they are not alone.

      Samantha.

    • Estimado Honam,
      Estoy muy de acuerdo con su publicación, “Detener el suicidio”, por que es muy cierto que cada vez hay más personas enfrentándose a problemas de depresión, hay diferentes tipos de depresión a el que las personas enfrentan dia con dia.
      Para estos tipos de problemas las personas necesitan ayuda profesional.

      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “los suicidios son causados principalmente por deficiencias en la resolución de problemas cuando se enfrentan a situaciones extremas de la vida” creo que esto es algo muy importante porque hay muchas personas que tienen diferentes tipos de problemas como problemas familiares,escolares,en la calle y otros más. Estas personas muchas veces porque no saben como resolver sus problemas y ellos piensan que la mejor manera de arreglar las cosas es el suicidio. Pero estas personas están muy equivocadas en vez de suicidarse deben buscar ayuda con familiares o psicólogos para que ellos puedan ayudarlos y no se suiciden.
      Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribas a continuación, porque tus publicaciones hablan de cosas importantes que nuestras sociedad debe de saber, para que en nuestro mundo no haya tantos suicidios en nuestro país.
      Y para que las personas que tengan algún tipo de problema busquen ayuda con otras personas y no se dejen vencer por el miedo a no resolver sus problemas.

    • Dear Honam,
      i think that your writing is important because way to many people are taking their own life. i think that it is important people realize that now there are so many times teens are doing this and it’s sad because it’s caused by so much that is going on in their life that so many people might not even know about them. Even the most simple thing that anyone could can be so hard for them and make them feel like they can’d do it.

  • Hi Lola,
    I found this interesting that less and less people consider capital punishment effective as a deterrant to crimes. Instead, impriosnment has been more effective. I think it may be time to revise the punishment given to criminals. Here is an interseting ressearch from Dartmouth College.…Read More

    I agree with your idea that dress code should be changed to make students feel more co=mfortable in their learning envirnments. Moreover, dressing is also a way for students to express themselves. Therefore, changing dress code seem necessary.n Here is an intersting story about weird dress code.…Read More

    I know text and drive has been a big topic in driving. Avoiding being on the phone while driving is an essential rule to insure both the drivers and the pedestrians.

    • Hi Haonam
      I agree with your claim about women should have right to make choice over their body. The Untited States was established on the idea of freedom of choice, therefore in the United States we should let our women to have choice over their own body. Here is an article I read about the abortion that similar with your claimhttps://www.prochoiceamerica.org/issue/abortion-access/.
