    • This poem is beautiful. I like the way you used metaphors and personification to exemplify who you are as a person. I find this very relatable, coming from a place that is also very centered around nature. I would love to hear more about the place you come from and how it has shaped who you are as a person. Great post!

    • Joseph, I love your poem. It depicts such a clear and vivid image of where you are from. I think it was a very personal poem and I loved how raw and authentic it was. I also really liked the language you used in your poem. I would really love to read more about where your from and how your home has shaped who you are and what you love. Overall, this was a great poem!

  • I liked your post, Paul. I agree that climate change is a big issue, but there isn’t enough data or research being conducted to portray the image of climate change. I also concur that there are immense amounts of simplification of such an intricate topic. Climate change may be a broad and complex issue, but to every problem, there is a cause, and…[Read more]

  • Jack, nice job with raising awareness. I agree that an influx of something is not that beneficial to us, and also to the environment. I liked how you were able to tie the topic of health to the environment. However, as humans, we require certain amino acids that only come from meat such as tryptophan, lysine, threonine, and others that we cannot…[Read more]

  • Hi Thomas,

    I liked your informative article about the inversions in Utah. I found it interesting that this only occurred in the Salt Lake City area and not in other places. I am interested to hear your research about the topic with reliable resources. I wished you elaborated some more on your topic. Otherwise, nice work!

  • Nick, your argument is quite thorough and shows that lots of effort was placed in to write your argument. I agree that it is hypocritical to be swear to be moral but killing someone at the same time. Along with your point, it feels like doctors are abusing their authority and making rash decisions for patients and their families. I am interested…[Read more]

    Nice work, Colin. I really liked your stance about paying athletes in the NCAA, and I agree with your point. They already are offered a scholarship to play, and they use a lot of time for their sport. Just like them, students who work in labs or in other places also spend as much time working or researching, and many of them aren’t offered a…[Read more]

    • Hi Joseph,

      I am impressed by how thorough your argument is; it shows a significant amount of in-depth research and reading about the subject of Dark Matter. I think you are absolutely right that modern physics, which has only become significant in the relatively recent past (last 60 years) has revolutionized our approach to modern physics and science as a whole. I am interested to hear your thoughts on what other innovations may be possible with an increasing development of scientific theories and technology. Thanks!

    Juliana, nice insight of a theoretical scenario. I also agree that the world would be connected, meaning that ecosystems, evolution, climate, and humans would have been severely impacted. In addition to what you included, I think that modes of transportation and technology would have changed. For example, because of there’s less water, meaning…[Read more]

    • Dear Joseph,
      I am interested in your view of optimism because, of the way you have been treated made you think in a positive aspect, instead of staying negative.

  • These are memes that Tuan and I made about hunger stats and people starting to care about the topic. Laugh and enjoy our satire against the issue.

  • Food is the most important resource other than water for us, humans. We need food to survive through each day because food is the only thing that provides us with certain nutrients and energy for us to carry out

    • Joseph, I’m really impressed with all the research you were able to come up with. You offered solutions to the problem as well after doing good job initially of presenting the issue. You did a good job of citing your sources as well.

    • This was very well thought out. You used many in-text citations to show the various aspects of your topic and had each paragraph very focused on a specific aspect. I especially liked the paragraph that was second to last. I found it interesting how you related various countries lack of industrialization as a key part of why they struggle to feed their population.

    • This is very thought out. I do agree that world hunger is a huge issue in the world. Many kids go to sleep without any food in there system and it’s very sad. I totally agree and appreciate your topic.

    • After seeing all of your threads Joseph, I was quite intrigued by the issue of world hunger, so I did some quick research just to see if there was anything I was missing. I knew many people around the world did not have enough food to eat everyday, and when I actually looked at the statistics and facts, and really thought about it, I realized how bad the issue really is. The number of hungry people in America alone is unacceptable and Im glad you are trying bring light to this subject.

    • You picked very interesting topic to explore. I think you did a good job conveying a lot of information in a way that’s not too wordy; this is a true infographic. You did a good job of including lots of research and making your claims all credible. Your infographic presents both problem and solution.

    • I found the blue fourth section to be very interesting. I had never thought about how the mass donation of foodstuffs could reduce food prices nor damage developed countries prestige.

    • This is a very nice infographic. I agree with your views, and possible solutions. Another solution I can propose is for not just the people trying to talk to the government, but the government of countries using their power to help the starving citizens in their countries.

    • Joseph,

      I like what you put together in your info graphic. You start with eye popping stats that will stick to peoples minds and make them feel for the people who are hungry and starving. You then gave causes and then solutions, which will inform people about what we can do to stop hunger in our country. It is a good strategy and method to get people on your side.

    • This is a tough subject, and definitely not an easy one to tackle. I find your infographic to be well done, with definite attention to detail. However, I do find your solutions to be sort of idealistic. This isn’t necessarily bad, though, as idealists have revolutionized the world historically. Thank you for this infographic.

    • I think this is very well put and I believe that the way you listed such statistics about things people normally don’t hear about was very moving. Most people don’t realize how big of a deal world hunger it is and how many people it effects.

    • Wow this was a very interesting and well done piece. I like that you provided so many details and facts which give a lot of information about the topic. Keep up the good work because it needs more attention.

    • Great work Joseph, your piece is chalk full of information! I understand that your topic includes many regions throughout the world but my suggestion for you is to only focus in one specific region in the world that faces this problem.

    • I really like the way you made infographic about Hunger. It is very well organized and easy to understand the topic.

  • You can’t go wrong with food. You like it and we like it. More importantly, it’s necessary to sustain most organisms on earth, providing energy for everyone, and as humans, we all have a special flavor we enj

    • Great Work Joseph and Tuan! I really enjoyed reading your annotations, I appreciate how you are spreading light onto this subject even though many people are not aware of it. I also appreciated how you were able to pull out the key information from the articles even when there may not have been extremely lengthy. Keep up the good work!
