  • Hi Maria, interesting article! I have been watching this show and really like it. My one complaint would be that the plot lines are not amazing. Mando goes to a planet, does some sort of mission, and then leaves (most of the episodes appear to follow this format). Other than that it’s super entertaining to watch and I love how it connects the…Read More

  • Hi Matthew, great article! As someone who seems likes online school and actually does well with it, it’s interesting to see the flip side of things. I think most kids are struggling with being alone all day in their rooms and a lack of socialization. This probably leads to motivation loss and other negative effects. I completely agree that we…Read More

    • Dear Miles, I thought your post was very intriguing and you did a great job of including important statistics on the topic. I think you did a great job of clarifying how e-cigarettes are bad for everyone but are even worse for developing brains. The scariest part of this whole fiasco is we’re not even sure of the full extent of circumstances that will occur due to the consumption of so many foreign toxins and chemicals.

    • Dear Miles
      I am satisfied with your post because it raises awareness about the bad addictions that students are having now. Smoking e-cigarettes is becoming an even bigger problem and is damaging the youth.This post is very helpful to help children try to avoid these.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “E cigarettes are not healthy for anyone, but are especially unhealthy among adolescents whose brains aren’t fully developed.” I think this is sad, because these unhealthy e-cigarettes are in children’s hands very often.
      Your post reminds me of some of my old classmates. One time…I saw them smoking for the first time.They were really smart at everything and an honor roll student.Then after smoking for a while he started to struggle in school, fail and rarely showed up.
      Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was really informative.It spreads more awareness and can make children quit these e-cigarettes.

  • Thanks for your insight, Ishmael! I’m glad to hear that others are as passionate and aware of the issues of climate change as me.
