Hello, I am from Wuhan. I have seen how the coronavirus spread out in Wuhan, China and the world. Specialists have not yet been able to determine the true source of the virus or even confirm whether there was a single original reservoir as some of the people infected with the virus had not been frequenting the market. Here is an assessment of the virus. Hope everyone will be safe and healthy Wuyou Zhou https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30185-9/fulltext
Education is known to be the key to success in the modern era. Graduation from the prestigious colleges will almost guarantee success. Education seems to be a basic right. This is only true until college.
Having an education is very important to most people and having an education helps the future generation. The cost of education is very expensive and it has stopped many people from continuing their studies
Hey Jack! I loved your article! In this article it quotes, “A college education is not affordable for all Americans. College is necessary for success in any person’s life”. I think that I am going to have to disagree with this quote because college is not necessary for success in someone’s life. College can be a success in some people’s lives yes I do agree with that. Not everyone makes it big in life because of college though. Most of the billionaires did not go to college. Most of the billionaires made it because they had a dream and they had a vision, they thought outside of the box.
This is a very interesting post. I strongly agree with what you said in the post. There are a lot of people want to go to college but they couldn’t affort it. That is why we should use this chance to study hard and maybe help more people to get into college.
Hi Riley, I agree that the population increase has played a big role in the bad air. I also agree that these lung diseases need to be stoppes. Bad air in Utah is everywhere and we need to get rid of it. There are some tips in the link below on how to help fix this bad air. https://www3.epa.gov/region1/airquality/reducepollution.html Sincerely,…[Read more]
Hi Nini, I agree that depression is a serious illness. We need to have more open talks to help these people. Depression has ways of being dealt with and the website below can help with that. Hope you can find it useful.
Texting and driving is a big issue these days. Teens text and drive all the time thinking there will be no consequences. Teens do not think of the risk before they do the action of texting and driving. Many
Womens rights have been a heated topic for a very long time. Today gender equality is better then it ever has been. I do not think that better is good enough. Society needs to push to the point where both genders are completely equal. Other countries have played a huge roll in womens rigths.
Charlie, I also think that plane safety is about as good as it can get. There is always a chance that something may go wrong. Many people fly everyday and very few people ever crash in a plane. The numbers so that planes are actually very safe. Here is a link to help understand.…[Read more]
Vaping has become a health epidemic all across the country for teens. Teens have been caught in the bathrooms at school or at home with their parents. These teens are exposing themselves to harmful chemicals.
The middle class is the most important part of the economy. The middle class need to succeed so that the economy can improve. The majority of people should own most of the money. This would allow the economy to
I agree with what this user is saying. The middle class seems to be looked over and not owed what they are due. The middle class, which are the harder workers, help to make things happen and I think they should be reexamined and should be given their fair equity.
Jack, I agree with you. I like when you said that “the rich just keep getting richer, but the problem is that they are leaving everyone behind.” This is very true because the rich control everything, when the middle class is what drives the economy. There is such a large gap between middle class wages and the top 1% earners, causing problems with the economy. What steps do you think we can take to diminish the gap. This reminds me of the documentary we watched in class by Robert Reich. He said that the economy is run by the middle class, so if they earn more, they have more spending money to invest back into the economy. It is not fair that middle class people have to work so hard, for so little. The income inequality is so great between different classes. Many years ago, the difference between the wealth and middle class earners was not nearly as great as it is today. I think you should write on what the solutions could be and what steps we could take to succeed based off Robert Reich’s video. You could also discuss how the nation will look in the near future if the inequality gap increases. Here is a link to an article by the Washington Post, further discussing the inequality in America that I think you will enjoy. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/09/26/income-inequality-america-highest-its-been-since-census-started-tracking-it-data-show/
Hey Jack, I actually agree on what you are saying about the middle class trying so hard to gain more, and yet they earn less on the salary they have on the job they are in. The middle class is always the ones that make the work place move, so in which case the middle and high class are like ants (for example) there are three types of ant workers in an ant colony: the travelers, the miners, and the nurtures. Each one of these works help the work place (or colony) to grow for the high class to try to make a few adjustments to the workplace if he wants to. I believe that the reason that they are lowing the salary of the workers because they don’t want to waist the money that they are not using because they are thinking to spent in a higher cost for them. Do you agree what I’m saying?
I think that the middle class does often become an after thought. most of the time the upper class will benifit from the work the middle class has done. It’s unfair but this is the system our country runs with. Reagan coined the phrase trickle down economics and we thought it would work.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
