    Cashless Businesses

    In the article, “Should Cashless Businesses Be Banned” I learned that in the past few years there has been an increasing number of stores, restaurants, and sport arenas no longer accepting cash. Due to this occurring many cities such...

  • Dear Lizbeth:
    I was very intrigued by your post, “What do you think when people talk about race” because I like that you are interested about these topics and also how open you are to talking about this situation. I think it’s interesting how many people try to avoid making conversation about these types of situations. When in reality people…Read More

    Covid Vaccines

    In the article, “Should Covid Vaccines Be Mandatory” I learned that about 2 million people have died from Covid-19 worldwide as of mid-January. Which is more than 380,000 people in the United States. The U.S finally approved two covid...

    • Yes, I think Covid-19 vaccines should be mandatory due to the fact that they can’t stop the spread. According to your post, it was sort of biased due to the fact you gave your personal thoughts and mutual feelings about the situation. I disagree with you since I believe that when taking the vaccines, grants you immunity to the virus, and you as a person helps stop the spread of the virus.

      One sentence that stood out to me was, ” However the vaccines only have the potential to end the pandemic if enough people take them to stop covid-19. ” I like this sentence because you acknowledge that these vaccines do in fact have the potential to end the pandemic, so why not make it mandatory. I believe the vaccines have the potential and will stop the spread of the virus.

      Thank you for your personal thoughts upon the vaccine, but overall it should be because slowing the spread is essential to go back to normal life.

    • Hello Litzy, I enjoyed reading through the stats of cases and how you expressed the two different sides of the type of stance on the situation of COVID-19 vaccines. It’s also interesting reading your thoughts on the situation, I think the answer to this is somewhat subjective depending on the person something that intrigued me from your post was: “Do you think the COVID-19 vaccine should be mandatory?” Regarding your question, do I think that we should track down people and inject them forcibly? No. Should I agree that individuals should be allowed to have access to certain facilities (hospital work, public schools, etc.) unless they have a valid medical excuse not to do so? Yeah, of course. Anyways, I enjoyed read the stats and your thoughts on the whole COVID-19 vaccination situation, as well as the question you left off with at the end of your post. I hope to see what other opinions you have.

  • Dear Rosa:
    I was very intrigued by your post, “What do you think about robot creatures,” because it is impressive how much technology the U.S has to make these type of robot animals. These robot creatures can be something that can help out on the long run. Although, you mention that they would use these robot creatures in marine parks for…Read More

    Penny Elimination

    In the article, “Is It Time to Eliminate the Penny?” I learned that the U.S. produces more than 7 billion pennies a year. To produce these pennies the U.S uses a type of mineral named zinc which is really...

  • Litzy commented on the post, Substance Abuse

    Dear Toby,
    I was very intrigued by your post, “Substance Abuse,” because it is impressive how much you know and care about this issue and understand the situations and reasons why Native Americans choose drugs and other substances over their well being. Substance abuse is a real problem that I knew about already, but did not realize how bad it…Read More

  • Dear Rosa,
    I was very intrigued by your post “Hawaii’s Lava Waterfalls” because I did not know how helpful a volcano can be for the marine life. The fact that these volcanoes help the marine life even at the degrees the lava is , amazes me. Although the eruption can kill many fish and birds nearby the ash created helps the tiny plants float…Read More

    Paid Sick Days

    In the article, “Should Paid Sick Days Be Required?” I learned that most U.S companies offer their employees a certain amount of sick days and still get paid. Although there are many companies that offer this not all of...

    • Dear Litzy,
      I am intrigued to your post and i agree that there should be paid sick days because you mentioned, ” I believe that paid sick days are very important especially because of the circumstances we are in at the moment.” In these moments is when we need to get paid for sick days because we are having a difficult times and were not use to this situation.
      Sincerely Rosa

  • Dear Rosa, I really like how you mentioned the high cost of straws but the long term effect they put on the earth. Since they are used so much each day this means that of course there is a mass production of straws. Pollution on earth increases and it ends up hurting marine life. The plastic invades their home and the animals don’t know any better…Read More

    Immigrants in America

    In the article, “Should America Still Welcome Immigrants?” I learned that immigrants are what keeps this country running. Immigrants have to accept the challenge of leaving behind their old lives to build new ones in America. This is something...

    • Dear Litzy,
      I am interested in your post because it highlights the benefits of welcoming immigrants to America. I like how you mention that immigrants “come with nothing and have to deal with the barrier of a foreign language.” This is important because I think that many people do not understand the difficult challenges faced by many immigrants. Your post is a good reminder that immigrants provide many benefits to America. Thanks for your post, and I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have shown insightful ideas in this post.

  • Dear Fatima,
    I was very intrigued by your post “Is a smartphone affecting us” because this is a topic young people try to avoid including myself. Many older people believe phones are affecting the younger generation because of how society is now. Although, phones may be a great source and help us if we’re lost or just in need of a friend to talk…Read More

  • Litzy commented on the post, Titanic II

    Dear Cristina,
    Your post about Titanic II intrigued me because it’s a topic not many talk about and mention. It is crazy to me how they would want to create another boat like this. If it was a fail once why try again. Although it has many new innovations this could still be very dangerous because no one actually knows what’s in the water. In my…Read More

  • Dear Melissa, I was very intrigued by your post ” The Dangers of California Wildfires” because I did not actually know how bad these fires were. These wildfires have caused so much damage not only to the people and their homes but the animals that live in these places. I believe these firefighters deserve more than they receive for their hard work…Read More

    I am very intrigued about your post “A DIsh from My Culture” because hearing how much love you have for your culture is very genuine. I really like learning about new cultures and I felt like your culture seemed so nice the way you all show your love towards the people you care about by making them a dish that takes a long and…Read More

  • Dear Rosa,
    I am very intrigued by your post because I never thought scientists would want humans in mars. I agree with you that humans going to mars is such a bad idea, it’s very dangerous. Although humans going could accomplish their main focus and look for what exactly they are looking for it is still a big risk. Maybe sending robots should…Read More

  • Dear Diana,
    I was very intrigued by your post about a vaccine for COVID-19. I agree with you that by a vaccine getting created it would change the world drastically. It would let us humans go back to normal without having to use masks and businesses being able to reopen again. Although many of us want this vaccine to come out faster we have to…Read More

    • i agree with her because covid-19 is a global disease that many people have died from that disease and that is why i agree with her and also because she has accused economic problems. in the city the total of cases are 458k in new york and the total of death 32,696.

    • i agree with her because covid-19 is a global disease that many people have died from that disease and that is why i agree with her.

    • Hello there litzy i strongly agree with you. I don’t believe that there will be a covid-19 vaccine soon. I think its going to take another year or months or so because it is not easy to get a vaccine because it needs to be make sure that this vaccine is going to be effectedly and succesfully to the people. Also theres been so many death all around this world so its not easy right now. This global disease that’s going all around the world very dangerous. Do i think that everyone would want to take the covid-19 vaccine umm thats a good question i believe that not everyone would not want to take this vaccine for the coronavirus.
