Ryan, This is a very enlightening article. You did a good job of expressing your opinion and backing your argument with facts. I found the suicide attempt rate among transgender people mentioned in your writing to be alarmingly high, and this was a powerful piece of data that will do...

Addie, I thought you did a good job of previewing and summarizing your research. I also think the picture you used is very representative of the content of this article, the "backwards" flag representing America's warped media.

Suzanna, I like the fact that you have take a very unique approach to gender roles in the workplace rather than just relating everything to the highly debatable wage gap. Have you been taking into account the genders of the people conducting this research, and do you think that...

Anna, this is a very interesting topic, and I am also concerned about the declining health of honeybee. The sources you used were very effective in answering your question. Do scientists know why worker bees aren't returning to their hives?

Natalie, Coming from a Catholic school, I've grown up having to wear uncomfortable, conforming, and usually ugly uniforms. I used to hate wearing them for the very valid reasons you brought up. However, I have come to enjoy uniforms because I don't need to decide what I need to wear...

Dear Kim, It seems to me that this issue is very important to you. However, I'm a little confused as to what you mean by saying drugs affect other people because of the smell of the drug. Also, do you have any suggestions for the president to solve this problem?

Conner, I'm glad that younger people such as yourself are interested in macroeconomics and the the problem of widening inequality of America. If you are interested on expanding your knowledge on the topic, I suggest that you read Aftershock, the written companion to Robert Reich's Inequality for All. The...

Naomi, This is a really informative and well-written article. I've never fully understood the environmental impact of microbeads up until now. However, did you know that the use of microbeads in cosmetics as of last year was banned in the US? I remember reading a similar article the day this...

Elliot, I must say, this poem has left me very confused. However, this wasn't a bad thing, and I finished reading this poem with more questions than when I originally stumbled upon the eerily "realistic" rendition of Shrek as the title image. Keep up the good work!

Skayla, This is a really nice poem. Even though its title was "Seashell," I had failed to realize that the poem was told from the POV of a seashell, and I was pleasantly surprised after reading the last line of the poem.

I think this was a very relevant topic to discuss, especially for our age group in light of the fact that most of us stay up late. This post was written really well, and I wonder if alternative techniques are better at treating insomnia than sleeping pills.

Please wait...
