    China's Surveillance System

    In the article, “One Nation, Under Surveillance” (Upfront, Mozur, 2022) I learned that the people of China are constantly being watched over and monitored in every aspect of their lives. Not only are there police cameras in every place...

  • Dear Belen, 

    I am stunned by your post, “The Buffalo Massacre of May 14, 2022,” because I did hear about this back in May when it happened, but I didn’t know the extent and severity of the situation. I think it is absolutely disgusting that this cruel act was driven by the idea of white supremacy. I also find it very ridiculous that the man r…Read More

    • Dear Nicole,

      I am impressed by your post, “Debate on Zoo Ethicality” because there is not much awareness being raised on issues like this. I believe it is extremely important to ensure that the zoo’s number one priority is that the animals are being kept in a healthy and interactive environment. It is not only unethical, but unfair to the animals to be kept solely for human entertainment.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “On the other side of the argument, zoos are not ethical because the animals are not living in their natural habitats.” It stands out to me because I think zoos should be creating similar like habitats for the animal. I think if zoos did this, it would reduce the amount of stress the animals goes through, and it would definitely feel more safe for them.

      Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing your next post because I enjoyed reading your post. I also believe you will be able to bring more awareness and coverage to these type of issues.


  • Dear Miles, 

    I am intrigued by your post because I am shocked by the remarks that were made by those government officials. It is hard to believe that people who are authority figures would neglect the problem of global warming and would think of it as if it is not a real problem.

    A sentence you wrote that stood out for me was how some people…Read More

  • Dear Jennifer, 

    I am impressed by your post, “Three Habits Important to Me!,” because I think it is nice how you connected these habits to your everyday life. For instance, the way you constantly asked questions to learn more about the NYC snow. This is very significant because asking questions is one of the most helpful ways to gain an und…Read More
