• Luis, this is a verying interesting piece of writing. I think it was good how you talked about zoos in our society and also how we test our vaccines and different medical drugs on animals like mice for example. This is a perspective I have never paid much thought to. This is super interesting and I’d love to hear more!

  • Dashiell, this is a beautiful piece of writing. It really spoke to me. I loved every point you made in your post. I loved how you said ““Why America isn’t the greatest country anymore” examines the issues that we have in our nation as well as the great things we have done and the great things that we can continue to do.” because it’s true! I don’t…[Read more]

  • Branigan, I didn’t realize there was so much danger in youth sports. You hear all the time about how concussions are so prominent in football but you wouldn’t think youth sports as much as in the NFL for example. And football isn’t the only sport with consistent injury. Hockey, Basketball, Soccer, etc are all very dangerous. Here’s a cool list…[Read more]

  • Mack this was a very interesting piece of writing. It always used to wonder why athletes would bother playing for a team, when they’re not getting paid and when they were not guaranteed to play at the next level. I strongly thought they should be paid until I realized that they are offered scholarships and are still required to take classes and…[Read more]

  • Johnny commented on the post, Ceramics 2 days, 13 hours ago

    Amy, this is such a fascinating piece of writing and such a cool topic. I did not know how much of an impact ceramics has made throughout history. I have taken a ceramics class at judge along with at my old school and there is still so much I don’t know! I look forward to hearing more about ceramics.

  • Clara, This is such a cool topic you re writing about. I had no idea there was such thing as a fear of the number 13. It’s almost funny to think about. Looking at some of these previous comments and an observation I’ve made is that hotels and buildings usually skip from the 12th floor right to the 14th floor because of some people’s fear of the…[Read more]

  • If a loved one is or has gone through some sort of addiction you may recognize that it makes a large impact on the person suffering, but It also has a huge impact of friends and family of the one suffering from

    • Hi Johnny, I liked your post. I think it is very brave of you to write about addiction. lots of families struggle with helping someone who is addicted. I liked how you added into your essay that someone in the family has to step up and be a caregiver to the addicted person. I liked how you added that because it shows that addictions don’t just hurt you, they hurt everyone around you. https://www.bhpalmbeach.com/recovery-articles/impact-substance-abuse-and-addiction-families/ here is a website link to an article about the struggles within the family who is dealing with addiction.

  • When you think of addiction you may only correlate it with drugs and alcohol abuse. However, this is not the only type of addiction. Behavioral addiction is associated with a repeated behavior that causes harm to

    • Johnny, I find it very interesting that your writing about behavioral addiction because you never read about this type of addiction. It’s interesting that genetics play a role in the formation of this addiction. I can’t wait to see what you include in your essay about addiction.

    • I agree that addiction can go beyond drug use. I think that people need to treat other addictions as serious as they do with drug addiction.

  • Breaking the chain of addiction is by no means easy. Someone cannot cure their addiction purely by willpower, addiction is based on a skewed brain function; beating addiction is not because someone is flawed.

  • The word “addiction” is derived from a Latin term for “enslaved by” or “bound to.” Addiction creates a powerful influence on the brain that affects you in three different and distinct ways: craving of a

  • Kevin, great piece of writing! Our class also read 1984 and it’s such a great piece of dystopian literature. It was so cool that the government creates fake conscious and how citizens have to hide from their own thoughts and feelings from fear of the thought police! It’s a great read. Do you think Orwell was trying to warn us as readers that our…[Read more]

  • Chris, this is a very interesting post. I love the vivid descriptions and information about the reefs; it’s something I have never really put much of my thought into. This piece helped me learn about reefs so much more than I already knew about this topic. I did not know that they are deteriorating. I’d love to hear more about this topic and what…[Read more]

  • Branigan, hockey is most definitely a violent sport, similar to to football. It is not uncommon to end up with a concussion with the speed that the sport is played, the collisions, and the fights. I have never really associated hockey with CTE. I would love to hear more about this issue and what they do to resolve it.

  • Harvard Health- The first article I read was from Harvard Health which explained how addiction works and the cycle of addiction in the brain. It explained what things addiction include which extends further from

  • The play I chose was Shakespeare’s “Othello,” Act 4 Scene 2 lines 159-169.

    The character speaking is Emilia. She is very mad about how Othello treats his wife. He calls her a whore and then Emilia begins to

  • Arelly,
    This post was very intriguing to me however I have a conflicting opinion. I believe that online communicating should not be limited because it is a constitutional right, as stated in your introduction. I do not however disagree that cyber bulling and suicide aren’t huge issues in our society. I believe the proper approach we should make is…[Read more]

  • It begins with just me,

    alone, cold, pointless.

    The nights were dark,

    restless…

    long.

    Then the sun rises.

    I meet them.

    Finally, I feel warm,

    wanted…

    happy.

     

    Time elapses and months pass,

  • George Orwell highlights many themes in his dystopian literature that are concerning for the future of the world we live in. One of the largest concerns that he emphasizes is that all people are slowly losing

  • Wilson, this is intriguing! It truly is a beautiful car. It is evident that Lamborghini crafts their car with great precision and detail to an extent that is superior to other car makes. It represents luxury which is rare in our society. You normally don’t see multiple Lamborghinis traveling down the street at the same time, except for cities like…[Read more]

  • Johnny commented on the post, Comfort Zones 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    Emma, this is fascinating! I am a person who typically has trouble stepping outside his comfort zone, but I want to have self confidence. You provide good, easy to understand examples that help the reader grasp your idea. I have one question and that is “How can we push people to take the first step outside their comfort zone?” As we all know the…[Read more]
