Representatives from 209 nations have traveled to Switzerland to elect a new president and work towards reforms. This also happens to be the location of the prison where three former FIFA officials are being held. Along with the three officials are three former FIFA committee members awaiting the decision of whether or not they will be extradited to the U.S. The U.S. has requested that Swiss authorities provide them with any information regarding the criminal wrongdoings of multiple bribery suspects.
Hillary Clinton wants to help families that would be torn apart if undocumented immigrants are taken out of the country. She supports the DREAM Act, and wants to help to it remain as she feels that would benefit immigrant families. She supports Obama, which is not that unusual considering they are both part of the Democratic Party. Her immigration reforms are similar to Bernie Sander’s immigration reforms.
No matter what position you have on immigration, most people agree that our immigration policy is in need of being reformed. The question is, what changes should be made? Presidential Candidate Donald Trump says on his website (donaldjtrump.com) that we must put our own needs as a country first before we think about immigrants. Although this is a fair argument, with the recent flood of refugees from Syria and an increase with immigrants from Mexico, it is not enough to just think of ourselves.
Immigration is an issue that constantly appears throughout America’s history and remains controversial to this day. Many people are fearful of losing jobs and resources to immigrants, they feel threatened by that which they do not understand. However, in The Atlantic's article Why American Cities Are Fighting to Attract Immigrants, evidence was cited proving immigrant’s various contributions to our society. In 2011, the New American Economy reported that immigrants made up 28% of the small business workforce.
As students, we dislike going to school, having to sit in class and learn for six hours. We look forward to graduation, when we can finally escape what some of us jokingly refer to a "prison". The truth is that nobody can really escape education. People learn new things everyday. Education is inevitable. But who would've thought that you could still have the option of education behind the bars of an actual prison cell? Prisoners too can decide whether or not to learn.
Prison has changed a lot of people, whether it be good or bad. Often people who have recently got out of prison recently find it hard to get back to their old lives, because they've made a terrible mistake. The information I'm going to share is about how inmates react to society and the world around them.
As I have been researching the affects of binge watching on one's emotional behavior. I have been struck by a question, does binge watching cause depression or is binge watching an indicator one's depression? In the Huffington Post they referenced a study done at the University of Texas at Austin which stated that the more depressed a person is feeling the more likely they are to binge watch. In short depression leads to binge watching, and other binge behavior in general. This article challenges the belief that binge watching is a harmless way of passing time.

Have you ever been faced with the infamous question of what kind of Immigration reform should be passed, but are always too confused about the issue or just don't know anything about it? Well look no further than at the research paper linked above.
I start off explaining why the immigration system in the U.S is indeed broken and why it needs fixing. My reasoning to why the system is broken comes down to two things: inequality in how much money you have, and the promotion of hate in groups such as the Minutemen and laws like SB 1070.
The most important blog that I considered to be most useful, led me to a site under the name of Americasvoice.org. It gives three points to why politicians need to pass an Immigration reform. The first point states that passing an immigration reform will not be easier in 2015 than it is now, This is true because there's been protests, petitions, etc. Since Obama took office in 2008. Second, if republicans block a possible reform then they are risking an electoral tsunami, Meaning that they will not get votes.
I went to Gale research center and found three arguments against an Immigrant-friendly reform. The first argument tries to the explain why the passing of a DREAMact is detrimental for American society, The author appeals to the law process and how it should be respected. But if most of American society was so passionate about laws then things like Jim crow laws, Indian removal acts, etc. Would have never been stopped. The second article was absolutely anti-immigrant and a little insulting.
The site that I found most interesting and useful while I was doing my "Cite operator" research, was the government website. There are four separate articles that in the site that go into things such as strengthening border security, streamlining immigration, earned citizenship, and immigration & the economy. It's a great way to stay updated in the reform process since it was one of Obama's topics that he stated in his state of the union address on February 12, 2014.
During class I found my three articles that I will be using. The first one is named "A kinder, gentler Immigration Policy," It follows the progress towards a comprehensive and immigrant friendly reform. Building a bigger wall or being violent towards immigrants is not a way to solve the problem and the article explains why those actions are futile. Instead the article proposes a solution to let the states compete for immigrants.
Currently I've decided to stick in two major parts to my research: Social and Political reasons on why an Immigration reform is needed. These reasons will include problems such as violence, unfair wages, and discrimination that is a result from a broken Immigration system. For social I found a group called "The Minutemen Project," that is based on patrolling the border between U.S and Mexico for Illegal Immigrants, The people in this group have guns with them.
My name is Aldain and I live in the Bronx. I believe you should vote for my choice of the next mayor of New York, Christine Quinn. Quinn is bringing a lot of well desired changed to NYC from her involvement with homelessness and being a homosexual female, which would be the first for this country and a plus for women and gay rights empowerment.
When the new mayor takes office in New York City, education is an issue that he/she and the City Council will need to address to ensure the future and vitality of our city. New York City’s education is in dire need of reform - our schools are focused on testing and they lag behind the nation’s and world’s standards. New York City is the greatest city in the world - shouldn’t we be able to say the same about our public education system?
Every Friday night high schools across the country come out to support their football teams in a game full of excitement, school rivalries, skill, strategy, and of course injuries. Every sport has their most common injury with volleyball its ankles, soccer ACL's, baseball shoulder injuries, but the worst of all is football with injuries to the brain. Most injuries can be fixed with surgery or therapy, but when you critically injure your head there's not as much you can do.
