    • I definitely understand this. I go out to eat way more than I should and its not because I cant find any food in my house. I think the main reason more and more people are going out too eat is because they are lazy. You are totally right about the child obesity being a problem and I think people need too stop going out to eat or put a limit on how much to spend when they go out.

    • I for one am a huge lover of fast food. Its easy to get and usually pretty cheap. I feel like that’s the reason why the fast food epidemic is on the rise, its easy and cheap. I’m a pretty active person so burning off those calories and fat is easy. Fast food is a trap for those that don’t exercise or don’t have the time to. I’m not for getting rid of fast food but people do need to be educated about how harmful it can really be.

    • I really like this article because I have thought for a while that our country has a growing problem in obesity due to the overwhelming accessibility of fast food. A part I found very intriguing is towards the begining when you also stated the benefits from the fast food chains, instead of solely stating the downsides, such as a source of jobs for many and affordable food for families in poverty. I found it interesting to see the alternate side to this debate because it’s very true that fast food chains provide an astounding number of jobs to those in need, but what I think is that overall, the negatives outweigh the negatives and I think that is what you are getting at too. I really liked this, good job!

  • I think this is a really strong topic, because it is clearly overlooked in most cases. We don’t really consider the mental tole prisoners go through. The conditions of prison are also almost never focused on. This connection between mental illnesses and prison life is huge and in order to have successful rehabilitation facilities, this needs to…Read More

    I really think this was a fantastic topic choice being that this has become a worldwide phenomenon and in certain cases coffee could even be considered a drug. People have become so reliant on caffeine to get through there day, the sleeping hours per person is decreasing and decreasing. This is having an immense impact on our health and it needs…Read More

    • This could be a really good research paper for almost anyone to read, as it shows the importance of something as small and trivial as stretching and just how helpful it can be to the body. I know from experience the poor outcomes that result in not stretching as I have had my fair share of torn and pulled muscles. After my experiences and reading this, I am able to understand the importance of these injury preventing activities.

    • I love this topic. It is a very relatable topic that most people can relate to and understand on a personal level. I can’t wait to read more about it in your research.

  • I really liked how your post gives both sides to the topic of criminal punishment, that way I was able to see each point of view ad put them in perspective. This is a difficult subject as its a very extreme way of handling capital crimes. I thought your discussion will help me read Dead Man Walking with an open mind and see the ideas behind both sides.
