There are many solutions to stop the endangerment of snow leopards which are control the illegal wildlife trade and mining area, Reduce killings of the snow leopards in retaliation of livestock support activities as a way to curb the hunting of snow leopards and their prey species. My opinion on the endangerment on snow leopards is that i feel bad for them because they are being killed for they skin and bones and be sold for high prices to support people life habbits.
Lions are being hunted for their fur, teeth, and claws. The people hunting them are normally called poachers.
I am a high school student at Harvest Collegiate High School in New York City. I am a friendly, smart, athletic, generous teenager. I love to play soccer and baseball. I play 3 instruments- piano, drums, and trumpet. I was born on April 3, 1998. Maybe there was a turning point in my life when my grandmother died. I didn’t really think that it was a turning point but as I look back it probably gave me a wake up call to real life- that people you care about and love die, but you have to cope with it and hope for support from your friends and family. I have lived in Brooklyn my whole life. I moved when I was one, and then again this past summer.
I like to be with my friends inside and outside of school. I play baseball, soccer, take trumpet and piano lessons, am in a band, and I sail on the Hudson River with the Hudson River Community Sailing program. I am good at every subject- I don’t think that I am particularly good at any specific subject.
I love to play sports and hang with my friends. I love to listen to/play music and relaxing. I am particularly good at playing sports and playing music. I have thrown things since I was three, and I have played soccer since I was three. My older brother, my role model, plays those two sports and I got interested in them- he, my dad, and a few others taught me how and made me better. I am also good at playing piano. I love music- I became interested in the piano because my brother used to take lessons, so we had a keyboard. My good friend was taking lessons with a great teacher, they suggested her to me, and then I started to love playing the piano.
There are a few things that all have connections in my life. Playing sports, being with my friends and family, relaxing, and listening to/playing music make me happy and are what I love to do. I don’t know what I want to be an expert in, but I want to continue my interest in music and sports. The three things that matter most to me in life are family, friends, music/sports.
I most admire musicians, athletes, and teachers. I think my friends, family, and teachers would describe me as friendly, interested, thoughtful, generous, and athletic. I want people to remember how kind, athletic, intelligent, and friendly I am.
Music inspires me to continue my musical interests because of the effect it has on people and the world. Also, with music, one can interact with anyone because it is a universal language. My friends and family encourage me to strive for the best that I can do.
If I want to live life the way I want to , there are a few things that I need to keep in mind: enjoy myself, keep connections, stay social, and have fun. The things that keep me going are my friends, family, music and sports. When I’m feeling down I know that I can always talk to or do one of these things to get me back on my feet. I always keep in mind that I should enjoy myself and have fun everyday, because if I don’t, my life may not be as enjoyable as I can make it.
In the future, I hope to continue with my musical and athletic interests in some way. Even if I don’t become professional, to do them on the side of my job. I also want to have a family in the future. My hopes for the future of this world are pretty common: world peace, and for the U.S. to stop being its own stupid self.
I have no idea what I want to be doing ten years from now. I don’t like to plan so far ahead in advance. To make my dreams a reality, I will just have to keep striving for my dreams, no matter how tough the road is.
There are several important events of the 21st century. One of them being the stock market collapse of 2007-2008. This was important because it has caused many changes in governments around the world including the United States. It has made us rethink how we can operate our economies.
Another important event was 9/11. This was the first terrorist attack on the United States soil. This changed our idea of being a force removed from the rest of the world and loved by everyone. This caused us to invade Afghanistan and later Iraq, making the Middle East to hate us even more.
The third event I think was the two wars the U.S. started in the Middle East. These are important because they plunged the U.S. into huge amounts of debt and made people hate us even more. Also it has made us less willing to go into other countries like Syria to aid people there. It’s sad that because Bush invaded a country he thought had WMD’s that didn’t, we won’t help people out that are being slaughtered by their own government. These wars changed foreign policy in the U.S.
The topic of I have chosen for my research is memory. Memory is an interesting topic to me, because I’ve always wondered where it comes from. Memory is an interesting topic to me, because there is so much more to it than just saying “ I remember when...” Something that I already knew about my topic, is that memory happens when you have events in your life that are either pleasing to you or unappealing to you. I also knew that memory can help you with many things in your life. I also knew that there are different types of memories. Also, the way that you receive things can also help you remember.
Within my research of memory I have read different information on memory, and what it is. So far, it has been a little hard to find different information on memory. It was very difficult at first to research on a complex topic. I started off reading this topic called How Human Memory Works http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fscience.howstuffworks.com%2Flif.... This is a good source because it lets you know where memory comes from. This is also a good source, because it tells you how the mind works to remember things. This source also lets you know how your brain works together to form memory. It also tells you how your other senses work together with your brain, to help with your memory. This is a great source because it lets you know that our memory is not what we we think it is. In this article it says “ Most people talk about memory as if it were a thing that they have, like bad eyes or a good head of hair. But your memory doesn’t exist in the way a oart of your brain exist-- its not a “thing” you can touch. It’s a concept that refers to the process of remembering.”
By doing this research on memories, some new information that I learned is that many neurons in your brain work together to help you create a memory. Another thing that I learned that was new was that memory can be enhanced by sleeping. Also, that we can create false memories. In this one article that I’ve read, it was very interesting, and talks about memory. In the article Making Sense with Memory by Taylor Beck http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.harvard.edu%2Fgazette%2Fst... it says “ Our memories are designed to flexability imagine the future, schacter says, but not to record the past verbatim- so they are inherently prone to predictable error, which experiments reveal.” I found this very interesting. I never knew that our memory can predict our future.
With my topic about memory I would like to make it debateable. I think that memory is very important, and can help many people in the future. I would like to see what other people think about my topic on memory. Overall, I would like my topic on memory to be very beneficial to many people. This article The psychology of Memory, provide me with a lot of information, and facts. This tells me what memory is, and how many different types of memories there are. This also lets me know what helps people remember. Overall, this site http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fscience%2Fhuman..., provides a lot of information on memory and it is very useful. Also, different points of views on memory, and their facts. Memory is very beneficial and without it humans will be useless.
For this research I have decided to research about texting. I remember me doing my homework then texting. I looked at my phone decided to research about texting. I am interested in this topic because texting is the new talking. Texting has a positive and negative effects on people. What I know about texting is that its a bad distraction with everything we do. What I also know is that nowadays everybody text. I am interested because its like an addiction but a fun distraction. Once we start we can't stop. Doing my research for Texting I found that testing is a distraction, it affects lack of sleep, grammar skills, its an addiction and that its ruining the art conversation.
Researching on my topic I found good information about texting. It was hard to find information of my topic because I wanted to find a research that I could connected to and to other teens. I started researching in the New York Times, then from there it was hard for me to find a research that can relate to me. Going through some research I came across this one article called “Texting May Be Taking a Toll” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/26/health/26teen.html. In this article I read that texting can cause a lack of sleep. It gives examples of teens getting less closer to their parents because they rather be in a quiet place and text. It says that its a big distraction and that there are many students that text in class. In another article called “Has texting become an addiction for teenagers?” http://www.promises.com/articles/teens/teens-texting-addiction/. In this article there are many opinions of the addiction of texting by different doctors. Every doctors opinion says that it’s an addiction
Going through my research I learned that there are many effects on texting. One thing that texting has a negative effect is on grammar. Doing my research on texting I came across this one article called “OMG! Texting may ruin grammar skills, study says.”http://seattletimes.com/html/homegarden/2018863278_textinggrammerparent06.html. IN this article I read that the abbreviations in the text are the new words teens use. In another article called “Text Messaging: Is Texting Ruining The Art Of Conversation?” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/03/text-messaging-texting-conversa... there was many examples how texting had a very negatively effect on teens.
I would argue that texting can be a good thing. In my opinion texting can be good and a bad thing. Because while texting you can talk to more than one people and talking on the phone you can’t. Another reason is because when there's nothing to do or when you bored in some place you can text to someone without being loud. Sometime when you don't want to distract someone at their job they can leave a message and have them reading when they get the chance unlike when talking on the phone. Texting can be a negative thing because like in my research its a big distraction. It can cause a lack of sleep and the grammar skills.

What is depression? ”Depression is a medical illness that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest”
There are many things that can trigger depression. Many people think that depression is just a phase some people go through, but in all reality depression is so much more than that. It's a chemical imbalance. It causes major sadness and anxiety. Proper treatment to avoid and to prevent self-harm or suicide is counseling, natural vitamins, and if needed, anti-depressants. One should not feel guilty about taking medication to balance a chemical deficiency to save their life. Depression is not a choice and in some cases it cannot be treated solely by “happy thoughts” or counseling. Someone who is depressed commonly self-harms. Ways include Eating disorders, Exercise disorders, Cutting, Burning, and Bruising.
Facts about depression:
-Norepinephrine deficiency is the most common cause of depression
-Females are more prone to these hormone deficiencies than men
-60-80% can be treated successfully
-Theorized that 1 out of 10 people have self-harmed
-Estimated 17.5 million Americans are affected
The topic that I have chosen is the condensation of a typical five day work week into a shortened four day work week. This topic was interesting to me because a lot of people go to work, even my parents. I know that most of the time they either come home tired or sometimes stressed out. I wanted to find out if a shortened week would have a benefit to people lives and even economical wise (transportation/energy). I knew that people usually worked five days a week, about 40 hours a week. Most people have work related stress because of the conditions at work, like overloading of work, becoming tired, and hard work.
I have so far, have not hit any challenges in finding information on my topic. First I started off doing some research through Google, using search tabs and finding websites I thought were valid enough. I have read some news articles on cnn.com and nytimes.com about shortened work weeks. Some other new articles that I have read look valid, and has an author, like tlnt.com, guardian.co.uk, and 4thearpy.com. One major fact I have found was prove that a short work week implemented in Utah turned out to be a great success.
One major fact that I have learned was that in the state of Utah, over the summer, the government changed the work week to four days. What I found out that the move was a positive, as the state saved thousands of dollars in energy cost and transportation. I have also found out that in one source, that there are many things that can contribute to work related stress, like being encumbered with work, long hours, bad boss, etc. In another source, I have found out that some people benefit for having an extra day, because they can take care of errands, and spend time with family (more social).
I believe that my thesis will say that a four day work week is a benefit to society and the people in it. First I would defend my argument with reasons why a five day work week is detrimental to people. I will point out all the negatives that come to having a typical five day work week. After that I would use some facts about how a four day work week was used in the state of Utah and turned out to be a positive for people and society. Lastly, I would defend my statement on how people can benefit from an extra day, like run errands, complete responsibilities, rest, enjoy family and be more social.
