  • Hey Cynthia you have a really interesting post here. I understand the fear to not trust robots because they make mistakes, but humans make more mistakes, and take longer to respond situations. Also with time and development robots will get better. I feel it’s also important to point out that airplanes are almost always controlled by auto pilot.…Read More

  • Hey Matthew, this was a great topic to post about. It’s hard to deal with the world refusing to change even though it’s so desperately needed. We keep using fossil fuels even though it is creating more harm than benefits. The part where you mention that SUNRUN has 277% returns so shows how much the alternative energy industry is growing and…Read More

    Miss working out? Follow these "ten" steps.

    During the pandemic and school year it is hard for most students to stay physically active consistently. Once lockdown started we couldn’t go out and exercise all the time, and even now with the rising cases it’s hard to...

    • Great post Seth! I too have faced the challenge of staying fit during the pandemic. It’s so easy to jump on my bed, but so difficult walking outside to do pushups. I didn’t know exercise had so many benefits, definitely gives me a good reason to start again since I’ve been feeling kind of stressed with school. I’ll take your advice and start small, just a walk outside.

    • It was fun reading this because it gave pointers and gave us your about how you missed working out and figured out ways to work out even in the global situations we are in. No big issues besides just talk more about the why not the how.

    • This post was cool to read because I enjoy working out but it has definitely become harder to do during the pandemic. I like how it gave suggestions on things you can do to improve. It also highlights the benefits of working out which are very important.

    • Dear Seth
      I am glad to find your post, “Miss working out? Follow these “ten” steps.” because of the examples, you used about mental and physical health.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “It will pull your attention away from whatever you were stressed about which will give your mind a break and prevent you from being overwhelmed and add to your productivity.” I think this is very accurate and true because this is the main reason why I workout. School and the world could be very brutal and when I work out it helps me release my stress and I use that as fuel, it also helps me get my mind right and helps me set goals for the next day. Working out relieves stress and makes you feel mentally and physically great about yourself and keeps you on the right track.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you might give us other activities or tips on what we could do during a pandemic

    • Interesting post, Seth! I also agree with the need for just a change of scenery to improve mental health. As places are opening back up, I wonder which activities are the safest to do, especially in the winter cold. I would love to hear more about what sort of things you have been doing to stay active during the quarantine.

  • This is an interesting topic Abigail, and I like when you’re talking about needing to savor the food. But I don’t think Amanda is controlling her sons actions but instead strongly suggesting what he should try to do instead. Like how most parents show kids how to things, they don’t force them they just guide them. You brought my attention to this…Read More

  • This is an interesting topic Audrey, but one that needs to be talked about. I’m responding to your point of how the courts hesitate to even mention gun rights, not because they don’t care, but because they are trying to offend/aggravate as few people as possible. By staying away from the topic they avoid offending/aggravating people. Gun control…Read More
