    Abbey I completely agree that this is a huge problem right now in america that has been overwhelmingly overlooked. The ability the superwheacthy has to influence politics is disturbing and the way they can overpower most of the everyday middle and lower class americans is just wrong. The whole idea of super PACs as well is also pretty scary and…[Read more]

  • Joshua I completely agree with your post, some members of my family just started to try HIIT workouts and it has completely changed their lifestyle in the past couple months. They have been happier, more energetic, eating well, and has just helped them clear their mind. I too have somewhat recently started to workout more frequently and have found…[Read more]

  • The american opiod epidemic has been increasing over many years since the late 1990’s. This was the time that big pharmacutical companies were promisng that these perscription pain relievers were not addictive

    • Nic overall this post covers the opioid epidemic very well. I like how you explain what is happening as well as some examples of where people go wrong with opiates. The only thing I would recommend is maybe making it a little bit lengthier next time with more details.

    • hey Nic,

      I thought that your post on the opioid problem that we have in America is a really important topic to talk about. it was really fascinating to know how many people are misusing opioids. Here is a site with a closer scope of our opiod problem, because Utah has a major opioid problem too.

    Hi Lauren this was an interesting post to read I have always thought about how much of an opinion on the world we form by ourselves and not by our parents and clearly we do get a lot from them. I thought the part where you said lack of knowledge can be perceived as ignorant was very true especially in today’s society.

  • I did the same topic and this was all vary close to what I found in my research. I was also very surprised to find out that the few seconds of putting someone to death costs more than keeping them in prison their entire life. I was also surprised to find all of the cases people have been put to death and than found innocent. Interesting topic it…[Read more]

  • There is a lot of statistical evidence as to why abolishing the death penalty can be good for society. The first big reason is the cost of pre trial, trial, sentencing and the execution. A study done by

    • Nic this is such a great topic to choose and one that is not talked a lot about. I agree with you that this should not be the punishment one receives for their misbehavior’s. I like the argument you make in that it is best to send someone to prison for the rest of their lives because that is more of a punishment than killing them. I am with you on this topic.

    • Nic,
      You make good points on why the death penalty can be a bad thing. I agree when you say a person is not afraid of death if they can bring themselves to kill someone. Your analysis is thought provoking.

    • Dear Nic, I am Flabbergasted at the thought of the death penalty being a bad thing for the people who deserve it. Your post is very thought creating tho, “My biggest argument for this is because there have been innocent people that have been convicted and put to death.” this piece is prolly the best argument towards someone like me who believes in the death penalty. My biggest counter-claim to this, and A LOT of other situations is put yourself into the families shoes of a victim. You want the person to experience the same pain, and being able to know they have a date with a firing squad is the best remedy to be able to sleep at night.

  • In the article I read on medical marijuana they stated that the FDA has not listed medical marijuana as an approved drug because the FDA has to do extensive tests and processes. This article also listed a lot of

    Dear Mariana I agree with your article, woman should have the right to make the decision to follow through a full pregnancy. The fetus could not survive without the mother and if the mother decides to not want to continue the pregnancy she should because it is connected to her and her alone. Thank you for your detailed and very informative article!

  • Dear Gedeon this article closely relates to the article I wrote. In my article I focused more on the greenhouse gases coming from cars and factory pollution. I found an article with a graph that shows how Co2 is the highest levels ever recorded. Thanks for your post it was very interesting.

  • The earth has natural greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere. The greenhouse effect is the effect where gases in the atmosphere allow heat in but only some out. There are two types of greenhouses

    • Hi Nic, this is a great post on greenhouse gases and how they effect our earth. I am actually doing a project on climate change, how it effects our earth, and ways we can turn climate change around. I know that there are specific things we can do to limit the amount of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere while still generating the energy we need to support our lives, like using solar power, wind power, and hydro power instead of burning fossil fuels. However, do you know if it has proven to be more efficient or cheaper?
