Hey, Brooklyn. I really like what you are saying here, and totally agree with it especially in the context of our school. The restrictions are very well laid out, but many of them are ridiculous and obviously directed at the girls. If guys break the same...

This is very interesting commentary, Chisom. I agree with what you say in that all people deserve complete equality, but I'm a bit confused on what your definition of equality is. There is only so much that a government can do to prevent a lack of equality,...

This is excellent commentary on this issue, Nathan. I am currently writing this from an airport after going through the extensive process of getting through security, and despite the hassle I still believe that it is a process that should be in existence. However, I think that...

Thanks for your post, Chanburak. I am in total agreement with you about the symbolism that is used in 1984, and how the party seems to be a metaphor. Julia and Winston are also a part of the metaphor, and how it is possible to escape from...

This is very interesting commentary, Victor. When I write, I like to use as many of the senses as I can to draw my reader into the words, because without our senses we can't get a clear view of our environment. Visual sensations are often times the...

Zoos aren’t cool View Comment

This is very interesting commentary, Carter. I am in full agreement with you that zoos are horrible and that in today's humane world, they should not exist. It is hard to believe that we feel the need to establish ourselves as the greatest species by enslaving animals...

This is really interesting commentary, Francisco. Drug abuse is obviously a massive problem in America, and I agree with you when you say that there needs to be a solution to the problem. Rehabilitation is the obvious choice, because it is designed to help people get onto...

This is really interesting commentary, Cicely. One of the things that really fascinates me about our country is that many see our diversity as a weakness, while it is obviously one of our biggest strengths. Very few other places in the world have as much diversity as...

This is very interesting, Thomas. I especially like what you said about the idea of zombification, and that a society where everyone works only for everyone else causes a society where there is no individualism. This hinders progress in any society. When reading your discussion, I...

This is very interesting commentary, Ishak. I am impressed that after only three years in the U.S. you have developed very strong English skills. According to The New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/18/opinion/sunday/the-benefits-of-bilingualism.html#), being bilingual makes you think about the world in a different way, and in turn makes...

This is an interesting post, Jack. I agree with what you said about kneeling for the national anthem, and how many people saw that as a dig at America and its history. I see it as one of the most patriotic actions we have seen in the...

This is a really interesting post, PJ. As a teenager, I can say that my phone has become a part of me, and when I don't have it it almost makes me anxious. There is an article by CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/03/health/teens-cell-phone-addiction-parents/index.html) about how 50% of teenagers in a...

I totally agree with you here, Jesse. I think that it is going to take some time, but even after only 10 or 20 years of rapidly changing technology the amount of racism that has disappeared has been exponential (https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/attitudes-toward-racism-and-inequality-are-shifting/). This has been a process that has been...

The Impact of Technology View Comment

  • November 13, 2017

This is very interesting commentary, Sage. A lot of people, especially of the older generation, are of the opinion that technology has decreased our face to face contact and as a result of this we have lost many skills that we developed over years and years of evolution...

I really like some of the objects that you put into your box, Fernando, especially your small tribute to your grandmother. My grandma was someone that meant a lot to me as well, until she died at the age of 99 a couple of months ago. I'm...

This is an extremely deep and well thought out post, Thomas. I often think about the concept of nothing as well, mostly when I think about death. If there truly is no heaven or hell, no afterlife to look toward, and we simply cease to exist when...

I really like your perception of this issue, Thomas, and I agree that it is somewhat disrespectful to be kneeling during the National Anthem because of what it represents to the people of America, especially veterans. However, I believe in looking at the intended result of an action,...

This is very interesting commentary, Montana. We use our phones and other technology all of the time but in general are not thinking about the damage that it can be doing on both our bodies and our minds. I found it especially interesting when you mentioned that...

I enjoyed reading your post, Matthew; you had a lot of good suggestions in your article that show that you have done a lot of research. I especially like how you talk about using capitals, numbers, and symbols in passwords, which is a very easy thing to do...

I really enjoyed reading this article, Ammar; the fact that you have a personal connection to the war is very touching and it is truly sad that this is happening in the world today. I especially think it's horrible that 70% of the population of Yemen is in...

First of all, this is a very interesting topic of choice. I once read that there is only one species that should they disappear, the world of nature would actually improve, and that is humans (https://travelversed.co/travel-talk/20-things-that-would-happen-if-humans-disappeared-from-earth-overnight/). I like how you mentioned that nature would take over and...
