    Movie popcorn at home?

    Many movie theaters have been closed for months—and the popcorn is piling up. People have been eating plenty of the microwavable version of the snack while stuck at home during the pandemic, but theater popcorn comes from different suppliers....

    • Dear Rosa,

      I am intrigued by your post because it gets me thinking about all the ways our society is connected. It’s being sold directly to consumers who are stuck at home and moving exercising less.

    • Dear Rosa,
      I am interested in your post because I usually bought popcorn at movie theaters and never thought about what would happen if they shut down. I think the farmers should try and sell the kernels to grocery stores or something.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “enough to fill about 80 million tubs” I think this is sad, because the farmers main source of income is probably from movie theaters buying their popcorn but now that movie theaters are shut down there is nothing they can really do about it.

      Thanks for your post.

    • Dear Rosa:
      I am fascinated by your post, “Movie Popcorn at Home,” because It shows how we are all connected to each other and how companies are trying to even the situation brought by covid.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Those farmers now have a huge surplus on their hands, enough to fill about 80 million popcorn tubs.” I think this is important because it shows how much of a surplus farmers have and now they must find different ways to sell their products to consumers.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of your insight to to world being connected together.

    • Dear Rosa:
      I am Intrigued by your post, “Movie popcorn at home?,” because… It’s a topic I would have never thought of. It’s something new and gave me a true perspective of how these farmers are dealing and are storing popcorn.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Many movie theaters have been closed for months—and the popcorn is piling up.” I think this is brilliant because… After I read this sentence I wanted to know more. Questions started forming in my brain like yea, what has happened to the popcorn they use in movies? Where has it been put?

      Another sentence that I liked was: “so Preferred Popcorn, one of the largest movie theater popcorn companies, devised a creative solution: It’s selling the popcorn directly to consumers online.” This stood out for me because… These farmers weren’t gonna sit around and let the popcorn dry, They took action. (Even if the selling might not work as good as it did in the movie theaters) They started selling there popcorn. And getting it out there.

      I do agree with you that… Something has to be done. And showcasing this will spread “awareness” One reason I say this is… These farmers are suffering and they need support as well. Another reason I agree with you is… People need to know. That’s it, They just do.

      So Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because… This issue is something most people would have never thought of. Including me, but after reading this. You gave me an opportunity to see things differently. It’s not just the theaters closing, it’s all the people working behind the scenes and providing things for our viewing pleasure.
      They lost things as well.

    • Dear Rosa,
      I am intrigued by your post because I want to learn more about food.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “Those farmers now have a huge surplus on their hands, enough to fill about 80 million popcorn tubs.” I think this is interesting because of how corn there is.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to my friend. One time he brought some popcorn for a movie and he told me it tasted like the popcorn from the movie theaters. When he said that I was looking at him with a confused look on my face because I was wondering how can you tell the difference between regular and movie theater popcorn.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because…

  • Dear Alondra,
    I am intrigued to your post and i agree that there should be paid sick days because you mentioned, ”Paid sick days are a benefit that companies of all sizes use to attract the best employees.” In these moments is when we need to get paid for sick days because we are having a difficult times and were not use to this situation.
    Sincerely Rosa

  • Dear Zhelanea,
    I agree that young adults should vote they also need to be heard take their opinions in. Yes, i also agree there are some people don’t want to vote for personal reasons; and they should be forced to do it. Thanks for your post it’s very interesting to know more from voting.

    Dear Litzy,
    I am intrigued to your post and i agree that there should be paid sick days because you mentioned, ” I believe that paid sick days are very important especially because of the circumstances we are in at the moment.” In these moments is when we need to get paid for sick days because we are having a difficult times and were not use to…Read More

    Hawaii’s Lava Waterfall

    Every day since December, the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii has spewed thousands of gallons of red-hot lava into the Pacific Ocean. The water around the lava becomes so hot—2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—that even microscopic creatures can’t survive, and ash from...

    • Dear Rosa,
      I was very intrigued by your post “Hawaii’s Lava Waterfalls” because I did not know how helpful a volcano can be for the marine life. The fact that these volcanoes help the marine life even at the degrees the lava is , amazes me. Although the eruption can kill many fish and birds nearby the ash created helps the tiny plants float and feed on the ash. Which is all part of the food chain which involves us as well, because it describes how energy and nutrients move through an ecosystem.
      Learning about this was something new and I am looking forward for your future posts.

    • Dear Rosa,
      I was very interested in your post “Hawaiis Lava Waterfalls” because I saw that eruptions from volcanoes had a negative outcome and positive outcome to it. Such as the negative outcome is that if it erupts it could kill nearby fish and birds. The thing is though that the positive outcome when it cools down tiny plants are formed which is what allows fish to feed on which then continues on the food chain. Which means that it is very good for the ecosystem in a way and not always negative.

    • Hello rosa, I do like the post about the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. even if god´s creation can be the end of any life, it does birth new ones as well. Everything has its natural positives and negatives and none of us can change that all. That´s what good to see in life.

    Why is China Flooding?

    • I see where your going but can you fix’s the typing because on the right side the words are covered.

    • Dear Rosa,
      I am interested in your post because I’ve always hated people doing the 5 second rule. Its just very unsanitary.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “You may want to think twice about eating that candy you dropped on the floor” I think this is interesting because you chose to focus on Candy.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time this little girl drop her lollipop on the floor and she picked it back up. Her mom told her to not do it because the floor is dirty. The little girl procced to wipe the lollipop on her brother’s shirt.
      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this topic was very intriguing to me. Hopefully you can make more research on this topic.

    Are dogs pets or meals?

    Dog meat is considered a delicacy in parts of China, but there's growing opposition to it. This year, amid pressure from animal rights groups and the rising number of Chinese who keep dogs as pets, the government issued a one-week...

    • I agree with you that dogs are pets not meals, but I also understand that people’s views differ between countries. For example here in America as well as other countries we eat beef, but in places like India cows are seen as holy and it is illegal to eat them. We shouldn’t judge people for the way they choose to live their lives and as long as they aren’t stolen pets, and are humanely killed they should be left to eat what they choose to eat.

    • Dear Rosa :
      I enjoyed your post, “Are dogs pets or meals?,” because although mostly seen as pets, others in other countries see them as food.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “People in some countries, like China, are killing dogs for meals, not keeping them as pets.” I think this is informative because although it is true, we don’t know their situation, and we do not know if they are killing dogs for necessity.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

    • Dear rosa, I liked your posts about the article of ¨are dogs pet or meals¨ because I did not this would something to think about or why people would choose dogs to be a meal. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is ¨I believe that dogs shouldn’t be killed for meals.¨ I truly agree with you because dogs were never meant to be a meal they were meant to have a pet there and for them to have a life as well not for them to have a life just so it can be taken away.

    • Dear Rosa,
      I am interested in your post because I have heard about the possibility of gene manipulation becoming more popular in animals and possibly humans in the future. I feel like there are many different opinions having to do with this matter, ranging from believing it is a good idea and will benefit the future population of our world to thinking that it is extremely immoral and will ultimately have danger effects on people.

      Something you said that caught my attention is that “those changes [of the DNA] are passed on to subsequent generations meaning they will affect not just a single baby, but all of the baby’s descendants too.” I think this is a very important piece of information, and brings up a good point for the argument that if the edited embryo causes dangers and disorders for the baby, it will also have these detrimental effects on all of its future generations.

      Your post reminds me of a discussion that I had in a class last year, but I can’t remember which class it was. I do remember thinking that this topic is intriguing and involves a lot of controversy whether or not it is right or wrong. I think that it is a bad idea to start spreading the popularity of editing human embryos. If it’s malfunctioning right now, that’s not a good sign for scientists succeeding in making it 100% safe for people.

      Thanks for sharing your ideas! I enjoyed reading this post 🙂

    • Dear Rosa,
      I am interested in your post because it brings up a very controversial topic. This issue is very prevalent in today’s world because of the implications it could have on humanity’s idea of children, genetics, and more. It could even impact the dynamics within families, as it is very unknown territory.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “ Another issue is that when an embryo is edited, those changes are passed on to subsequent generations meaning they will affect not just a single baby, but all of the baby’s descendants too.” I think this is incredibly important for this topic because it shows the long-lasting impact of gene editing. The effects are permanent and effect real people, who are more than just experiments and will lead lives. The descendants of the baby who had genetic editing will then continue to spread the altered gene, thus altering the traits of many people. This has the potential to go very badly.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time in Biology class we tried to use CRISPR to edit a gene. Even though our attempt failed, it was important because we learned how important this technology is becoming. More research is being done on it everyday and it is increasingly becoming more refined.
      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was very interesting to read. It has a lot of good information to get readers to do more research and it brings up a topic that many may not have heard of previously.

  • Dear Evelyn,
    I am intrigued by your post it’s very sad and i like where you mentioned that “algunas personas lo tienen todo y aun así se quejan…” This is very heart touching post because your family got separated and you had to leave everything behind to begin a new better life.

And i’m very happy for you and your family that are now…Read More

  • Dear Rosa,
    I am intrigued to your post it really grabbed my attention. I like the part where you said “you must also know how to get up stronger.” This helps me that when i fall i shouldn’t give up easily instead i will keep fighting to reach my goals with or without help and support of others.
