  • Hi William. I agree, the garbage in our oceans is a huge problem and is a stain on our Earth. I wasn’t aware of the patch where this is all accumulating, and I think your description of the gyres make the reality set in. Preventative motions for the future are of course important, but I would be interested to hear about what scientists are…Read More

  • Hi Jada! I absolutely loved this post. If I’m being honest, I have never heard of Angela Davis before now. However, after learning about her from you, I’m so thankful both for this inspiring woman and for you teaching me about it. I like your argument for why Davis should receive an award, it’s completely valid. However I can’t help but wonder if…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…Read More

    • Dear:Olivia
      Thanks for writing.I look forward to seeing what you write next because you say that Constitution, which says that “each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.” Basically, they’re public shaming of government officials. However, the Constitution says nothing about Congress having the power to pass a censure motion against a member of another branch of the government. Jackson. This wasn’t lost on Jackson, who claimed the censure was “wholly unauthorized by the Constitution, and in derogation of its entire spirit.

    • Olivia, as much as I’ve always heard AJ’s name said, I was decently unaware of his legacy. I enjoyed the word choice and diction you used, it made the imagery even better. For example, the phrase “bitter defeat” shows just HOW bad Jackson felt. It was also interesting to learn about how he changed the campaign field into what it is today. Overall, this was a really fun read!

    • This is fascinating. I was unaware of this part of Andrew Jackson’s campaigning. I thought it was especially interesting when you said “It was improper for gentlemen in the Revolutionary-era to publicly self-promote. Andrew Jackson changed this ideology.”
