  • Is animal testing same as animal cruelty?

    Animal cruelty is when an animal most of the time defense less is hurt and hit for no reason just because the person wanted to. This is bad because hurting an animal with

    • You have done a good job explaining the difference and it could convince people.

    • Dear Salvador :
      I agree with what you said about your post, “Is animal testing same as animal cruelty?” because the use of animals to help other animals in the future is better than letting them get infected. I also support your claim because animal cruelty is hurting an animal with no reason while using it to help cure a animal disease is animal testing. Animal testing had a good reason on why it should be done and I think that it is different than animal cruelty. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “There is a constant dispute whether using animals is mest up or it’s good so that we can study and learn from diseases to later have cures for those diseases.” This stands out because it shows your opinion and I agree with it. Animal testing is to help other animals. But animal cruelty is to harm them.Another sentence that I had was: “Although scientist conduct test with animals with diseases it doesn’t mean they are being treated messed up.” This stood out for me because it also shows how the animals aren’t being mistreated, but being used for the greater good.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because It seems that we share the same opinion on this topic.

      • Thanks for your reply I really believe that animal testing is different to animal cruelty. I believe that scientist shouldn’t be disrespected when they test on animals, they aren’t trying to make animals suffer, in fact scientist make sure that the animals live in a habitable place, they also have studied that if animals suffer in captivity and they are unhealthy they will not get the best results for their experiments. Some scientist have been interviewed and asked how do they feel when they test on animals. some said that they love animals and they don’t like to see them suffer and others said that their intentions aren’t to harm the animals but to study them.

  • Dear Francisco,

    I read through your paragraph and I do agree with you since one of my projects included crimes by drugs. What I talked about was how Video games can be one alternative to drugs because they can help distract the mind to video games instead of drugs. Although Video games can help as some type of treatment, it can’t really be u…[Read more]

  • Video games or Violence?

    Are violent video games harmful for teenagers?

     

    Do violent video games influence violent behaviour? Some examples of Violence video games are Call of Duty, Counter Strike, and Halo.

    • This is a great article! I really liked that you didn’t only focus on the problems with video games, like most people choose to do, but you also focused on the benefits to it. You used a lot of examples that strengthened your argument. Here is another article that I found interesting on the benefits of playing video games. https://www.engadget.com/2017/02/09/8-cognitive-benefits-of-playing-video-games-for-kids/

    • Hi Salvador,
      I really enjoyed your post. My brother has always been a big fan of video games which worried my parents. They thought the games made him aggressive and antisocial, but I think the opposite happened. My brother made friends really easily because of his knowledge of games. One thing I’ve always heard is gamers are much better at decision making. I found this article about gaming you might find interesting. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/body/what-science-knows-about-video-games-and-violence/
      I hope you continue your research!

      • thank you for your support I will do more research on the benefits to gaming, I also want to talk about the decision making part because i was going to add it to my blog but for some reason I didn’t, but anyway I found developers that work on game that progress by the decisions that you make in a game , The developers are called TellTale games, they make games that are heavily influence in pure decision making you might have heard about some games they made. Some of their more famous games are the walking dead games they made 3 seasons. I found myself not being good at decision making but when i started playing their games i saw that i was able to make decisions more efficiently, That surprised me. I also found some research that gamers are better at making decisions since in video games players get to play around with trial and error which means that in video games they can test different choices that they can make until they find the most beneficial to them.

    • Dear Salvador,

      I am glad about your post “The Shadow Box Project” because it is good to see people that are not afraid to show their stories through symbolism, how you did. The more people that share their stories, the more are going to be less afraid to share their own. I am also glad to see that you created your own box with your own materials (like making a clay xenomorph and adding all of that cool background).

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “The sculpture is based on an alien called the xenomorph, basically the xenomorph will do anything for its queen and its whole hive which is its family to insure that they will stay safe from any threats. They also will try to impress the queen so that they can get a higher role for more honor. I will do anything for my family and I always want to make my parents proud of me. I really respect my parents because they are always working hard every day for me and my siblings.” I think this is a good way to connect your box back to your own life, and how it represents you. I also like how you described what a xenomorph is, what it does, and how it relates to you because I know that many people wouldn’t have understood your box if you just showed it to them without explaining.

      Another sentence that I liked was “We started having nothing, no home or food we had to live in a homeless shelter for a year i think. Then my parents found a job and were able to afford an apartment and food for the family. After that my parents were able to afford a house of their own and also were able to afford food and more stuff than before. Now I’m In high school getting my education to go to college and hopefully get a great job.” This stood out to me because you talk about your personal life, letting others relate to you and see another perspective to your box. I also really liked the way that you phrased everything in that sentence because it sounds very professional.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I know that it will be even better than this post (even though it is already pretty good) and I know that you will talk about more things that might be happening in the current world.
