    • Joseph,
      Thank you for sharing this story. It’s very creative! I loved the descriptions you used, you painted a picture of the great Montana wilderness using only your words. I also like the way you wrote the story, especially when you were able to slow the reader down by dragging your words out. You really made me feel like I was in Montana. You may like this short story that also takes place in Montana, https://www.shortstoryproject.com/walking-out/.

    • 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!

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

      -Sid

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • Hey Minnie. I was also shocked when I learned about Huck’s age and I agree with you. It seems as if he had a more developed mind than what we expected and discerned from his educational level. He is clever and at the beginning of the book, he may have been less mature, using his guile into horsing around, but as the book progresses he learns to mature, getting rid of the undesirable qualities he had at the beginning. What about you? Does Huck mature and eventually get rid of some undesirable qualities he had?
      I agree with you that as Huck matures, he believes that Jim and other slaves are his equals. The book shows this when Huck rips the note he was about to send to Miss Watson and tries to save Jim from the Phelps. Do you think that this event was the big turning for Huck in race relations?
      Nice comment, Minnie, keep up the good work!

    • Hi Joseph, I think that you did a really good job of analyzing Huck Finn. I also have to commend you on the amount of quotes you used to support your analysis of Huck Finn. I think that the quotes you used were great. I’m glad you included the quote, ““I studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right then, I’ll go to hell’—and tore it up. It was awful thoughts and awful words, but they was said. And I let them stay said; and never thought no more about reforming” (Twain 191) because in my opinion, it is the most important few lines in the whole book. It shows that rather than following societies will, he let his moral compass guide him. A question that I have for you is do you think Huck would do that for any other slave that’s not Jim or is that something he would only do for someone who is his friend?

    • Hey there, Joseph-
      Your analysis on Huck was in-depth and well thought out. I find the way that you describe Huck escaping everything about civilization, and not just civilization itself, to be thought-provoking. It isn’t something that I had considered myself, especially due to the fact that he continues to speak in somewhat religious terms throughout the whole of the book despite supposedly turning his back on civilization, including religion.
      What do you believe Huck has in his heart? What drives his conscience? Obviously we see his conscience drive him throughout the novel, but what do you believe is at the root of this? Is it external factors, internal, or both?
      Thank you for the look into the character of Huckleberry Finn. I believe you helped extract his character and spirit a bit better from this post, and would definitely be interested to see how you feel about whatever it is that drives him, if it is anything at all.
      Regards,

      -Zachary
