  • I skimmed through all the posts about taking a knee and most of them said taking a knee was okay, but yours is different. I appreciate you for not going with the status quo on social media and speaking against taking a knee. My parents came from a different country where divide tore their country apart, so when they saw the players kneeling it…[Read more]

  • I think babies are absolutely adorable! I definitely think our early years effect who we are today. For example I think the way we are raised forms our beliefs and thoughts. I think you should check out psychology topics that can explain how our early brain development effect us. I really like how you gave the example of the ACT and SAT because a…[Read more]

  • Whalers kill dolphins, whales, porpoises, and other marine mammals. In Japan, they do so in a cruel and shocking way. In one particular place in Japan, they rally dolphins into a cove so they can’t escape. Then

      Hi Rachel, I appreciate your concern about the dolphins but you must consider the culture factor of the Japanese culture. I would first like to state that I don’t agree with them killing the dolphins but we don’t have to boycott the 2020 Olympics in Japan. Thought centuries the Japanese have relied on there vast Oceans to supply them with food, the fisherman do kill the dolphins but they do not waste what they have killed. Fisherman in Japan have grown up harvesting these beautiful creatures. Fisherman do in fact monitor the the hunting, if they didn’t monitor themselves, they would have disappeared long ago. Few of the deaths are from poachers, so we cannot taint the Japanese and “Boycotting the 2020 Japan Olympics” because everyone else could argue that we shouldn’t have the Summer Olympics in LA due to the terrible air quality. There are bigger fish to fry when it comes problems with Japan. Great use of sources!

  • Thomas, I also feel strongly about the racial issues that the NFL players are protesting. However I think it would surprise you that most people actually don’t feel the same way about whether or not taking a knee during the anthem is appropriate. A recent poll showed that, “According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, 58% of Americans believe that players…[Read more]

  • Rim, your topic of research is a very big issue in our country today. I likes that you had a lot of sources to back up your thoughts on it. Particularly the research on “What people mean when they say all white people are racist” I think if you included different points of views that combat your research, it could add depth. For example if you say…[Read more]

  • Dear Ammar, I am sorry to hear that this war is effecting you. To be completely honest, I didn’t even know that there was a war going on there. I really liked reading your article because it brought to light to me some of the outcomes of the war. I didn’t know that the rebels were being backed by ISIS, which is a prominent terror group. I think…[Read more]

  • Javier, I really like your insights on poverty and crime. I also have wondered if the two are correlated. I did not know that most people know someone who is poor, and I know someone who is poor as well. This really puts into perspective how poverty is more widespread that we think. Living in Utah, maybe I have a different perspective that would…[Read more]

  • Charlie,
    I think a lot about this topic and your article gave me new insight on the issue of climate change. I didn’t know that one in six species is projected to be extinct by the end of the century. This upsets me because I believe that we need to respect mother nature. I hope that our generation can spark change in this issue, or at least slow…[Read more]

    Hey!

  • I already know that ghosts are scientifically not proven to exist, but there’s been millions of stories about encounters with beings of the third dimension. I believe ghosts are real because of the way people s

    • Rachel, I think about this question all the time. I have never experienced anything with the paranormal, but I watch tv shows about peoples experiences. Also my aunt has weird experinces and she says its from the supernatural. How often do you experince paranormal activity alot? I found this website by a paranormal investigator. This article talks about theories on time dimensions. Hope this helps! (Article: http://www.theparanormalmd.com/blog/the-relevance-of-the-space-time-continuum)

    • Dear Rachel,
      I was bored and typed in stories about ghost and although your title is very basic your story is very interesting.I too believe in ghost the same reason you do basically,just from all the stories i’ve heard.I always watch tv shows about ghost and things like that and people who can talk to ghost(medians) are mad dope.

      I love that you put quotes into your story as well its makes me more intrigued because now it’s your opinion but also you have facts too.For example this quote you put is my favorite,”Albert Einstein suggested a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts, based on the First Law of Thermodynamics: if energy cannot be created or destroyed but only change form, so what happens to our body’s energy when we die?”That quote really makes you think,at least me.I personally would be scared if i had an actual encounter with a ghost but it would be a dope experience if the spirit was a good one.

      Regards
      Alexandria
