    Olivia commented on the post, Climate Change

    Dr. Williamson knows about climate change. There is no need to explain what it is and it’s repercussions to him. If I were him, I would be wondering who exactly is part of your team and how you guys are actively working to reduce the severity of climate change. Sure, you may be making posters and presenting to middle schoolers, but what are you…Read More

  • How can middle schoolers make members of the LGBTQ+ community feel welcome through their every day actions? In what ways can I show that I am supportive of all genders and sexualities without being part of a specific organization. I want to help make people feel comfortable. It almost feels like the things proposed in this piece are targeted…Read More

  • Thank you for sharing your personal story in addition to supporting it with legal events. I didn’t realize that people made such a big deal out of trans people using one bathroom or another.

    You seem like a very interesting person. I would love to learn more about you and have some more examples of what type of graffiti you enjoy and maybe some that you do not (if any). I would also like to know how you would react to someone who dislikes graffiti because they believe it is damaging or ugly. Can’t wait to hear more from you in the future.

  • I had no idea that these new advancements were being made. I would love more specifics on what we are learning and how it impacts the scientific community. How are gravitational waves detected and what are the causes? I hope to see more research from you in the future.

    Olivia commented on the post, Charter Schools

    I didn’t know that charter schools were public schools. I would love more information on why charter schools do not receive as much funding. I am also curious about why not all schools would be structured like charter schools if the level of education is so much better. Personally, I go to a private school which my parents pay for. My school does…Read More

  • Ive heard a lot about our coral reefs being damaged, but I never knew why. Do you think that there is any way to reverse the damage done or minimize further damage? What sort of implications will this have on the ecosystem of the ocean in addition to tourist attractions and the economy? I would love to hear more from you.

    • Olivia, I really enjoyed this post and I think you have a very interesting topic. This study did a good job at looking at what other studies did and then improving. I especially liked when you talked about how “high levels of positive feedback, training, and instruction lead to higher levels of task and social cohesion.” Here is an article you might find interesting: https://www.nytimes.com/guides/business/manage-a-successful-team. I look forward to learning more about your project.

    • Olivia, I found your post about team cohesion and leadership to be very interesting. I enjoyed the section of the study that discussed how team cohesion and strong team leadership are very interconnected and that strong leadership must be multidimensional. I also enjoyed learning about how different sports require different levels of team cohesion. This is something I never would have considered before. Here is an article that gives another in depth look at team cohesion and leadership. https://www.sportplan.net/drills/blog/teamCohesion-14-01-2014.jsp
      I hope to read more from you soon!

    Olivia commented on the post, Ceramics

    I love the topic of ceramics and you seem very passionate about it. I know that people do ceramics because it is art and can be calming, but I never considered that having something tangible to work with could be a form of meditation or therapy. I would love to hear about different kinds of pottery from you in the future such as what different…Read More

    Olivia commented on the post, Designer Clothes

    I never considered the fact that designer clothes are more comfortable. I would always just assume people wore designer clothes to look more professional or put together for other people. I love that you explained that you wear designer clothes because it makes you feel good. It’s also interesting to me that dressing nicely is so important to you…Read More

    • Hi Olivia! This is a very interesting topic and one that I think a lot of people can relate to. In any activity, it is important for all members to work together for a common outcome. Without cohesion, there is simply no chance of success. I especially liked how you discussed tactics that leaders can use in order to promote unity and even a sense of community. The thing that could really make your paper stronger is some data or real world examples. Maybe discuss a time that a team didn’t work well together and how that reflected in their playing. I found this article on some collaboration statistics to get you started. Overall, great job! https://blog.bit.ai/collaboration-statistics/

    Olivia commented on the post, Dangers of Hockey

    Hockey is known for hard hitting and injuries. It makes sense that many athletes get concussions. Do you know how many hockey players have CTE? Is CTE more common in one age group than the others? I would like to hear more about this from you in the future.

  • I agree with the fact that a location defines people to some extent, but I believe that people also define the places they live. When you say that America is diverse, what do you mean? Are you talking about the landmass and climate? I would like to hear more from you explaining what you mean more specifically!

  • Hey, Oliver. I stumbled across your post and was compelled to read it by the title. I really like what you wrote and if your title was set in place seriously, I encourage you to keep working until you are more confident in your work. I would love to hear more about where you are from in the future!

  • This is an interesting topic. I understand your point that schools should intervene in harmful online activity in order to provide a safer environment for their students. I do have a couple questions though. How would schools know when they need to intervene? How would cyberbullying between people in different schools or even in different states…Read More

    Olivia commented on the post, Comfort Zones

    Emma,
    I agree that it is important to step out of your comfort zone, but I think there is a limit. If you have a healthy, active lifestyle, would you decide to eat nothing but cake for a week and stay in bed just because it is something different? I believe that if a situation presents itself and is not obviously dangerous or detrimental, it is…Read More

  • Wilson,
    I am not super familiar with cars, but this is a beautiful one. Do you know how long these Italian materials are expected to last? I would like to see more information on the maintenance on the car because if it begins to fall apart after 10 years or 10,000 miles it will lose some value even though it is an amazing car. Do you think these…Read More

  • Dear Jesus,
    It is interesting to hear how much better our air is based on statistics that you mentioned. Do you think that the management of burning is sufficient or do you think we should start looking more seriously at alternative methods? I would love to hear more of your ideas on this question.

  • This is a great post. I have thought about this topic a lot lately with the popularity of Fortnite expanding significantly. My little brother plays it every day for extended periods of time.

  • This is an interesting topic, Johnny. I think that having protective measures such as TSA and people to research hurricanes are good, but I would rather see regulations on who can own guns and physical building security for schools. What is your opinion on having clear backpacks, metal detectors, and police in schools? In the future I would love…Read More

  • Hey, Anika. This is a really interesting topic.

I always just thought it was a part of looking professional in front of clients. Do you think that uniforms in the work place and and at school are a…Read More

  • Hey, Mario. I am very interested in this topic and just wanted to ask a question about a statement you made. If the person was stressed when they died would it be detrimental to the data?

    • Olivia, I like how you used both sides of the argument to address the controversy over milk. However, the cons of drinking milk stood out more to me, because it surprised me how many risks there are when it comes to the production of milk which people tend to usually avoid talking about. I will definitely think more consciously next time I drink milk, and decide whether the benefits are greater than the costs or vice versa.
