An issue in today’s society that concerns me is the cost of college education. It seems to be ridiculously expensive, and nowadays you practically need some sort of college degree if you want a sustainable job with benefits at all. I especially think free college education would be a good idea because there are so many students who want and would work very hard in their college education, but simply cannot make ends meet to afford it, or they have to take out student loans and are paying them back for a good portion of their life.
The United States might have pledged to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees, but that is not happening. The U.S. government has been doing less than the minimum of what they can do to help with the relief efforts in Syria, starting with the small number 10,000.
10,000 is a small amount of Syrian refugees to take in, in comparison to the 2.2 million people that Turkey has taken in, but is the U.S, actually taking in that many people?
Why are people so cruel? Why do people lie? Why do people push others down to get ahead? The Gliniewicz family is quickly creating an infamous image for themselves. From a loved police officer dying to create havoc in the small town of Fox Lake, IL, to it all coming out to be a hoax. The Fox Lake officer purposely killed himself, but had con-cocked a plan to make it appear as if he had been attacked and killed by someone else. Why would someone do that? Is the typical response, but Officer Gliniewicz knows why he did it, and now so does the public.
Using the Pioneer Academic Search I came across several articles and discussion that related to my topic, but the best article I came across was Future relations between the United States and Japan by D. Bradley Gibbs. This article went over some of the history behind Article 9 of Japan's Constitution and highlighted the irony that it is now the United States that is putting pressure on Japan to amend its constitution to allow for an offensive capable military force.
Upon researching my topic for my paper I found some interesting information on Twitter. I found 'tweets' discussing one of the passages Marcus Luttrell had written in his book "Lone Survivor." Marcus Luttrell is a former member of SEAL Team 10 and a survivor of Operation Red Wings which was also portrayed in the popular movie "Lone Survivor". He was rewarded the Navy Cross, the second highest medal that can be awarded to a member of the military and is presented only by the President. He is considered by most to an American hero.
The Twitter search lead me to an article which was about President Obama announcing that he will remove Cuba from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. Cuba has been on the list since the 1980’s, when Castro provided sanctuary for terrorists who were responsible for many attacks. Cuba has distanced itself from the terrorist organizations, and hopes that being removed from the list will open up the foreign market to them.
Over the past few weeks, I have continued researching nuclear technology, and I've finally decided on a research question: "How has nuclear technology evolved since its inception over seven decades ago?"
On December 17, 2014 President Obama officially decided to reestablish the United States’ diplomatic relationship with Cuba. Mending our severed relationship will be very beneficial for Cuba, but, the decision is also self-serving for the United States.
In Japan, the workforce has becoming increasingly obsessed with, well, work. Increasing demands from consumers and their bosses, many in Japan have been dying suddenly without warning because of literally working too hard. The behavior that causes this is high stress, lack of sleep, and poor diets due to always being in an office working on something, not having enough time to care of yourself.
Recently three people were arrested in New York City as they were allegedly conspiring to be a part of Isis and support the terrorist group. The three New York resident,s Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev (24), Akhror Saidakhmetov (19), Abror Habibov (30) where one defendant offered to kill the president of the United States if ordered to do so. Saidakhmetov was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport when trying to board a plane to Istanbul.
While the country as a whole has struggled with abortion, several states have made remarkable decisions regarding abortion. This November in Tennessee, voters secured passage of legislation that paved the way for abortion restrictions. They did this using a two-thirds majority vote that altered the state constitution, allowing the state to assert, "...nothing in it 'secures or protects a right to abortion'" (usnews.com).
On October 1, an article was posted on pennlive.com with ten major facts about heroin addiction. It was very informative. I learned that most heroin overdoes victims are white. I learned that 73% of people who overdoes on heroin are men. As it turns out, heroin addiction usually starts off as painkiller addiction, with the victimes starting off by misusing easy to obtain drugs such as Vicodin and other narcotics that are prescribed by doctors. It becomes easy for these people to move on from these drugs to even more harmful ones like heroin, which kills people much more easily.
My senior project is going to be on school bullying in the united states.I thought this will be a great senior project topic to do my research on because it really makes me mad when I see students getting bullied.There are different types of bullying verbal, physical,or emotional.Bullying is a form of violence in which a person or a group of people with the most power attack those with less power.
My senior project is on the legalization of marijuana in United States. I want to research this because its has been a long time of protests and legal disputes to legalize the substance. So due to this I want to gain more information on disadvantages and advantages of legalization. Also i want to know what will happen to those who are already in jail for marijuana charges. I then want to settle on a side, is it a good idea to legalize marijuana in the United States or not.
The process of creating a slave in the 1600s still affects people of African decent today. From William Lynch’s method of “making a slave” to how the Spaniards have Dominicans convinced that they are not black. After researching, I have learned reasons as to why black people are known for absurd stereotypes and why they sometimes prove them to be true.
Since its detonation in 1945, controversy has surrounded the American decision to drop the atomic bomb at the end of World War II. By exploring the basic moral integrity regarding the detonation of the atomic bomb unto the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it can be said that there is more to the story than there first appears. The primary goal, however, isn't to sway the reader to believe that the bomb's detonation was right or wrong, but rather to help one discover and be well-versed on a topic so an education opinion can be made.
There exists a fundamental misconception about the lines that divide American society. People - experts and ignorants alike - have come to believe this nation has been split into two culturally and geographically distinct groups: red and blue, or liberal and conservative. That belief is wrong. A division does exist - that is unequivocal - but it is not nearly so black and white (or red and blue, shall I say). The American middle is large and it is growing.
I found an interesting New York Times blogpost about the lines by which American politics are divided. The post revealed that what is actually behind the red vs. blue political division is a split among rich voters. Meaning there is only a strong red-America versus blue-America split among the wealthiest group of Americans. The reason being Americans tend to vote based on economic issues, while richer voters consider social issues as well as economics in their voting decisions.
Unfortunately, there has been substantial evidence in the past of the United States striking deals with criminals. In a recent article post it has been brought to light that our drug enforcement agency has struck a deal with the Sinaloa cartel. According to the press the DEA has looked the other way allowing the cartel to smuggle billions of dollars worth of drugs into the U.S., in exchange for information on rival cartels. Obviously a moral question is raised in regards to whether this information is worth allowing drugs to enter this country, but there is also a question of practicality.
In my Site Search researching journey, I decided to focus on southern culture rather than merely typing in my topic as I have found doing that is not quite so fruitful. One particular source, a scholarly article entitled "The South: Where is it? What is it?" The south is less a place than a concept - an identification if you will. It is characteristically known as a poor, rural, biracial region. Southerners have a group identity based on their shared history.
The Illuminati is a topic that has received a lot of attention the past few years in popular culture. Believers in the Illuminati would argue that it is a secret society that has control over all aspects of life, disbelievers would argue that the Illuminati is just a bunch of bologna.
TOKYO — Japan is considering the acquisition of offensive weapons and surveillance drones and will assume a more active role in regional security, the country’s defense minister said Friday, providing an early glimpse of ways the new conservative government could lead the nation farther than ever from its postwar pacifism.
The minister, Itsunori Onoreda, said that japan is ready to take this measures to counter the growing military powers of North Korea and China.
On July 23, 2013; the Washington Post's editorial board wrote ''The U.S. 'zero option' in Afghanistan makes zero sense'' in which the author describes the United States' actions, both right and wrong, as well as their respective repercutions and also mentions a series of events related to the United States that were important in the past years of the still recurring Afghan war.
Not far from the southern portion of Florida, there lays a Caribbean island named Cuba, a country with an odd relationship with the United States. Many Americans haven’t had the opportunity to interact with this native Cuban culture. This lack of interaction is due to the “freeze” of relations between the U.S. and Cuba beginning in 1960. This embargo was necessary back then, but now I believe that the total embargo is ultimately hindering both countries economically and culturally.
Emily: Good Morning delegates. I am the representative of North Korea. My name is Tenzin Chang and this is my assistant Soo-Jin Yang. It’s nice to see all of you delegates from many nations. I hope you will hear us out. We are here to discuss our opinion and solution of the nuclear weapons issue. We have been reported about the issue with our usage of nuclear weapons. We are here to negotiate a solution about this issue.
My topic is on immigration and how it affect immigrants. My topic will show the reader the struggles of immigration and how Americans feel about it.
I have chosen this because immigration is a very big topic and immigrants is what makes america and it takes up 14 percent of americas population which is a pretty big percentage. my paper on immigration is going to show the effect of the presence of illegal immigrants. ima write about how this affects people ,especially when it comes to job opportunities. since some americans find this 'unfair'.
