• Sophie,
    You make some great points about immigration and people working hard to achieve everything they want to in life. I however disagree with some of your statements about other disenfranchised americans and their status and how they “sit on their butts all day.” I see this as clumping all people into one group which is something that Trump…[Read more]

  • Dear Anna, I see a memory as something that will become not nessiary after a while in our race. This will become the equivalent of hunting and gahering skills where only a few people have them while the majoruty of society doesn’t. I don’t see this as a good bad thing but rather just a way the world evolves and changes. They change over time and…[Read more]

  • Trump has ruined empathy for strangers. As a society we have become unable to listen and understand the other. This can be seen in the 2016 election and its aftermath which is still being sorted through today.

  • Hi Nishan,
    As Colin says in a previous comment the NCAA uses a logic that says that this is a can of worms that they can’t deal with. However it is a problem that needs to be addressed because if we don’t it will never change. The NCAA addresses a lot of problems very quickly regarding format in the games and try to make it the best possible…[Read more]

  • Simon commented on the post, Enigma 1 month ago

    Words are powerful as you say in your post. I see them as being part of the world that is not seen as important because of the sheer volume of them we hear. The word enigma is fascinating in that it makes the reader or listener ponder what is the enigma and because of its elusiveness it can mean different things or be a different image to everyone.

  • Genetic engineering is a very useful thing in the world today. The basic concept is replicating genes or isolating them to discover what they do. From research into this we have been able to find out what

  • Hi Anthony,
    I am glad to see a project like this becuase it makes me think of sterotypes and how they are often wrong or only partially true. People prejudge and make asumpions all the time and fighting back on these to create a better society is a key issue today. The symbolyism you have used is great.
    Thanks, Simon

  • Hi Missy,
    Utah does have problems with the church but I belive that gerrymandering is the bigger issue then the morman church because the reson the church has such a strong grip is gerrymandering. The senators have figured out ways to split up uposing views into small fractions and make it imposible to become succesful at voting for what they…[Read more]

    Changing Education

    We are behind other nations in education. This is not one person or one groups doing however, it is a team effort as a country and there need to be real conversations on how we create a

  • Hi Daniel,
    One thing that I think gets lost in who we are as a culture is what you mentioned very last, opportunity and equality. As americans one fundamental question that must be asked is a wether we as a people want a system of equality of opportunity or equality of result. One situation where this is a big deal is college admissions and how…[Read more]

  • Hi San,
    This is such a big problem and I believe that one of the biggest reasons is the amount amount of prison time given for minor drug offenses. Minor drug offenses have been punished harshly in America and the biggest sufferers have been African American men. they make up such a large part of the American prison system because the laws for…[Read more]

  • Hi William,
    I clicked on your post because I played rugby for a club team here in Salt Lake and enjoyed it very much. Rugby is a great sport and teaches how to be a member of a team and try to achieve something that is bigger then yourself. One problem with Rugby however is that people get injured similarly to football and you should address how…[Read more]

  • Hi Kavi,
    Your post is very interesting to me. I believe that we need firmer laws then we currently have to prevent tragedies like sandy hook and similar violence. The second amendment was written when people had one shot long guns for hunting, not fully automatic weapons used by the military. The law needs adjustment and needs to be changed. The…[Read more]

  • Anna,
    This was a great read and made me think about this topic in a way I never had before. I agree with you about Disneyland not being the happiest place on earth. I wonder wether the UNs stats reflect how everyone in those countries feel or if they are only reflect a select few who where interviewed. To continue reading on this I suggest this…[Read more]

  • Gilberto,
    Hectors responses to the questions about drugs shocked me. I knew that it was a problem, being in high school and seeing it first hand, but did not see the larger long term implications you pointed out in your piece. I wonder wether there have been studies done on high school drug dealers and where their lives go after they get caught.…[Read more]

  • Why do I get obsessed with certain things?

    I am an obsessed person and have been since birth. My first word was more. More is something that has been a part of me and is something that I try to contain at times

    • Simon, I thought your question was very interesting. Obsessing is a big part of human nature and there are a lot of people that do it. I thought it was very interesting that your first word was more. Do you think this a correlation to your obsessive behaviors? If so, how do you think this one word has influenced you? The article that you included in your response was very interesting. I think that many people view obsession as a bad thing because of disorders like OCD. In this article I read (https://www.verywell.com/rumination-why-do-people-obsess-over-things-3144571) it talks about how obsessing over things is sometimes a method to cope with stress. I’d be interested to see if you find anything more about obsession and the plus sides to it. I hope to read more!
