Positive Role Models

“I relate to [my mothers’ and friends’] struggles and I aspire to their greatness (“Role Model Data,” 2014). Everyone has a role model… some people may not know it or even admit it, but every individual has someone they admire. We aspire to exhibit the characteristics of an individual, and these role models give us direction in seeking what we want and what we want to become. In order to receive and obtain accurate and genuine information about women's idols, I collected a wide range of data from supportive women and peers in my life.

How Should We Look at History in Today's World

Just a plain white page because there isn't a good pic for this

About a month ago my YouTube was fulfilled with this ad of some sort of film called Baker Street. I'm not sure with the name though but the first line was this woman shouting: "The holocaust is real, it's a fact."
I was very annoyed by it.
There is a reason for it and I know, therefore you should better know that some strong language is going to be used. No swear word, I promise.

"Do You Want to Build A Wall?"

Submitted by The Movie Destroyer on Thu, 2016-10-13 10:15

Oh hi there, here is the Movie Destroyer. Yes, I'm back.
Recently I'm feeling that I'm becoming more political because apparently, the election is right behind the corner and I, someone who doesn't meet the voting requirement, is sitting in front of my computer, and trying to pull something out from all the voices from the political domain and just, standing in a middle ground, give you all something about my view on the election.
Note: I'm not a Trump supporter nor a Hillary supporter.
Also, the Movie Destroyer rule #1:

The Power of Believing

Submitted by hancockc17 on Wed, 2016-09-21 11:51

Hope, love, courage, strength-- to me “believe” is the embodiment of all of these combined. Growing up my mom filled our house with countless signs bearing that word. For a long time, I didn’t appreciate or understand the word; I just thought my mom had a perpetual obsession with it. I had seen the phrase, “Believe in the magic of Christmas,” and while it is a great message (don’t get me wrong, I love the magic of Christmas), “believe” also goes so far beyond that.

A Life and Death Situation

Submitted by Allsup on Sun, 2016-06-26 08:35

To the Next President,

Vaccinations should be required by law in all public schools because they are effective, they are safe, and they protect Americans from easily preventable deaths and diseases. 26 states in the U.S are below the government mark of 95% coverage for the MMR vaccine. That’s too many states. These diseases that people are still dying from are avoidable and preventable. There is no reason why on average 5,000 people die each year from Hepatitis B. Or why 40,000 people on average die from influenza each year just in the United States. Something needs to be done.

Dear Matthew

I am proud with your essay “Gary Lies "Because I loved the way you explain Gary life and when the was in school and details about the chapter.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Gary goes to church with Rick and Debra, sometimes. After a month or so Rick and Debra stop going to church every day.”I think it is a strong sentence is because when I was little I loved going to church and while I was going up I never went back to church.

Dear Damian

I am proud with your essay “Living with Catholics”because I loved the way you explain about Gary Soto live.What he was doing in his live.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “In Living Up The Street Gary Soto talks about his life as a boy and his family and how they lived on Bradley Street.”I think this is a strong sentence because you explain what the book was about.Also I loved when you said that the book was about his life as a kid.

Reading about what's healthy

Submitted by zbrown on Mon, 2016-06-13 12:54

I just started reading The Omnivore's Dilemma. By Michael Pollan, and my first impression is that I did not know corn is in the non-diary creamer and in the cheez whiz. Also, I didn't know that the citric acid that keeps the nugget ‘’fresh’’ is made from corn. The fact that corn feeds the dairy cows that produce the milk amazed me.

One question I have is that why is corn places you will never think to look ? What I want the author to explain is why is it bad to eat meat from animals that are herbivores. This is important because the meat we eat can affect our health.

Reflection of Research Paper Writing Process - Annotated Bib

Submitted by connorc on Mon, 2016-06-06 13:27

Recently in my expository writing class, we were asked to write a research paper on any topic that we chose. After searching the web for various topics, one particular one that stuck out to me was the controversial topic of the legzlization of marijuana. However, I'm not posting to talk about that topic, but rather the first step that went into my research paper regarding the topic - the annotated bibliography. Back when I was in Florida in AP Seminar class, we had to do a lot of very detailed bibliographies that were collected for a hefty grade.

Archetypes of Donald Trump

Submitted by Bryan L. on Mon, 2016-06-06 11:46
Donald Trump

Some people don’t like Donald Trump. Some people REALLY don’t like Donald Trump. Some people have such a great dislike for Donald Trump, that they will assault Trump supporters leaving a rally(http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/violence-breaks-trump-rally-san-jose-prot...). But no matter you’re opinion on Trump, there’s no avoiding the fact that a lot of people don’t like him.

Archetype

Submitted by The Movie Destroyer on Mon, 2016-06-06 11:21

Deadpool. Yes, we’re talking about Deadpool. He appeared in one of the only two R-rated movies in MCU (The other one in Wolverine 3, which is coming soon), as the MERC with a mouth, hunting down Ajax, or Francis, to save his girl. Pretty simple plot, huh? But Deadpool doesn’t do hero jobs, he declared that, and he is an anti-hero.

I assume that everyone has seen the Deadpool movie, so you should know the plot. But if you don't, please visit my Movie Destroyer on Deadpool movie (contains spoilers). This is the link:

Solar’s Future (Rough Draft of Argumentative Paper on Solar Energy)

Submitted by connorc on Sat, 2016-06-04 10:06

Solar energy should be implemented on a widespread basis because it saves money, reduces air pollution, and because it’s renewable.

Solar energy should be implemented on a widespread basis because it saves money. For example, a Californian building company called Lennar, Corp. has begun installing solar panels on all of the houses it builds, including ones in California, Colorado, and Nevada. One homeowner states, “Any savings, especially when buying a new house, is huge. Twenty percent off our electricity bill is a discount we will get forever.” (Hudson).

No more homework in schools!

Submitted by iparker on Fri, 2016-06-03 11:29

For all the schools that I know have homework, I don't think they should.

When schools give kids homework they are stressing kids out by giving them more work to do at home. Even when it's a nice day outside they can't even go outside because they have to stay in and do their homework. Some kids even faint because they get so worked up over doing homework.

Also some kids don't even go to school because of that. So I don't think that we should be getting homework inside of our schools because it id hurting a lot of kids and their lives.

Is Bernie Sanders as good as he sounds?

Submitted by armando on Fri, 2016-06-03 11:08

He is a nice guy, but he could do more to help us.

Do you agree or not?

Well, he is good, but I feel bad for him because when he was young, a fire took the lives of his mom and dad. So he was alone with his brother and sister, but he did not want to give up. What he did was try to help people that don't get enough money or education.

That's why I give him two thumbs up, and I hope you all voted for him and not Hillary because she is secretly the girl version of Donald Trump.

Please leave a comment below about what you think.

Proper Ebonics

Submitted by tewilliams on Thu, 2016-06-02 21:48

Have you ever wondered of the type of style or dialect that is spoken around you? Around school? Your family? Your community? Currently reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston where throughout her book she code switches the text from standard English to Ebonics or known as African American Vernacular English (AAVE), a dialect used mostly of African American culture.

Middle Eastern Refugees or ISIS Militants?

Submitted by moffettn19 on Thu, 2016-06-02 16:43

Now I know what some are thinking just by the title...

THIS KID IS JUST ANOTHER TRUMP SUPPORTER!

You are absolutely correct.

Or maybe: "He was just thrown into the political world by his parents, and now he hates Muslims."

Well, you are wrong 100% wrong.

If you read all the way through until the end I'll explain my argument.

My argument starts with the refugees fleeing from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and, I believe, some parts of Turkey at this point.

Ebonics

Submitted by kruss on Thu, 2016-06-02 13:06

Before the word Ebonics came into play people called it “Nonstandard Negro English”. Because some people didn’t like that phrase, a group of black scholars changed it to Ebonics in 1973. Ebonics is a language variation on English. It’s differs in that it isn’t as literal as the proper english we have been taught to speak. It uses more metaphors and isn’t very literal. Also many words are shortened and spelled the way it sounds. When it is being spoken many people just cut off the last letter of the word in order to truncate the word.

Try Little Fail Hard / Poco tratar Falla duro

Submitted by kruss on Thu, 2016-06-02 12:50

If I am being completely honest, my work has been less than subpar. I haven’t turned in like anything for any teacher for the past two weeks. I am really slipping and I couldn’t tell you why.

It’s been really hard for me to focus these past couple months and I think my depression has come back full force. The only thing I want to do is sleep and watch Netflix. I have no idea how to fix it either. I went back on my medications but that doesn’t seem to be working for anything. I really need to solve this problem.

suicide prevention

Submitted by IreOHS on Thu, 2016-06-02 10:04

My picture says the words of "GET AND ASK FOR HELP." What this means, in my case, when I was being bullied by kids at my school, you felt like you aren't apart of this world. It feels like you weren't meant to be there. I would never ask or get help because I was afraid that no one would ever help me. There was a lot of drama and bullying going on in my life and to others when it happened. My friends would ASK you to GET HELP, and not be AFRAID of what an adult will say to you. One day after school, I thought that all my friends left to go home.

I did a Suicide Prevention project showing how suicide is not worth doing because all of the family you leave behind. The goals of my project are to convince to reconsider Suicide. I did it because others deserve to know what they are wanting to do with there lives. I hope for someone to reconsider what they were about to do.

Emotional Appeals in Public Health

Submitted by tewilliams on Wed, 2016-06-01 04:01

You know those times when you are just laying around on the couch then a commercials like saving an animal’s life at the ASPCA shelter comes on, or everyone is having having fun at the boardwalk on a nice day, while you’re just sitting on the couch. And after seeing that commercial you start to feel a mix of emotions, whether it’s very happy, guilty, or sad for the helpless animals.

Our Evolving Society

Submitted by eric_yu2001 on Tue, 2016-05-31 20:09

Today's society consists of a variety of behaviors. What makes America, our home country, special is that it gives plenty of room for expanding a student's knowledge, abilities and strengths. In Communist countries, like China, it is believed that uniform was the best way of handling things. For example, everyone moved at the same pace in school. There were no honors, AP or extra study classes for gifted. Most chinese students, starting at elementary age wore school uniforms.

Raise your voice project-Let's save the Earth!

Submitted by JihoOHS on Tue, 2016-05-31 14:26

When I first heard about this project, something popped out in my brain, so I just made that as my subject. My subject is "Let's save the Earth!". I don't think many people know how serious this is. The temperature of the Earth is getting higher and higher. As a result, animals that are living on the very cold place, or very hot place such as polar bears, penguins, and etc are dying. This is really heartbreaking. Also, if we keep living like this, then we are going to die because of the global warming.

Do We Need to Control Guns?

Submitted by The Movie Destroyer on Mon, 2016-05-30 09:55

Hello Youthvoices, this is the Movie Destroyer's political version. Today our topic is about gun control.

Does a strong law enforcement on gun control make our society better?

I made a survey to our school (cross off) class (actually, 12 person in total). One of the questions is "do you believe that guns are the weapon that kill the most people each year". If you think "yes, it is", then I'm pretty much disappointed, because the total number of other kills are several times higher than firearms. See? A lot of things isn't actually the way that they seems to be.
