    • Hello Mireya, I am interested in your topic, can you think of any benefits that cloning can bring to us as humans beings.

    • Allowing women who cannot have children could be able to with cloning, risky and they would have the same dna (and looks).

    • Hello,
      This is very interesting. I honestly never really thought that meditation worked, or it was something that my mom would do because it was “eastern”. I might have to give that book a read to see what it was all about.

    • Mireya,

      Stress is something so many of us have to cope with and its important to realize when it is consuming us and how to put on the breaks. I too think ahead instead of going step by step, and it became impossible for me to focus on any one thing at a time. To cope with this, I write every school assignment I have to do each day in my planner, and next to it a rough time estimate of how long it will take me. This way I can focus on one thing at a time, and can physically cross off each thing I get done with a pen or pencil.
