National Geographic Are Wildlife Sanctuaries Good for Animals?
Sarah Yarborough's insight:
I found this pretty interesting, mainly because sanctuaries are an issue that is rarely addressed. They were initially created for those animals who are abused, neglected, unwanted, or otherwise cannot live on their own. However, so many of them have simply turned into zoos. I have always had abproblem with zoos. I don't appreciate the lack of privacy and natural stimulation. Countless zoo animals have shown signs of depression for this reason, and the fact that animals in need of sanctuary are having the same situation put on them is sad.
This article was quite relevant to me, and thought I had to read it once I saw it. One of the biggest questions I face every day in my life is whether, after finishing my undergrad, I should go on to grad school. this article lays out all the statistical information that goes along with it, and the unfortunate part is that few people are accepted into graduate school through a medical or scientific program. It's extremely competitive in the medical world, that causes me to still be questionable about my career path.
Times are tough, America, but you can take solace that your children are not enrolled in the hellhole that must be Benjamin Cosor Elementary School, where no fewer than six teachers have hired attorneys and refused to cooperate in a police investigation surrounding the discovery — twice in three months — of heroin and drug paraphernalia in a faculty bathroom. The story is unfolding in rural Fallsburg, N.Y., reports The Record of Middletown. On Feb. 11, an unidentified staffer discovered a heroin baggie in a men’s faculty bathroom. Before that, on Dec. 23, someone found heroin and a bunch of heroin needles in the very same bathroom.
Sarah Yarborough's insight:
This article is absolutely absurd. I cannot believe how big heroin abuse has become in the past years. I live in Simi Valley, and just last year, a Dr. Phil special was done there regarding the recent deaths of students and adults due to heroin. But to think, faculty at a school would bring such a dangerous drug on campus? These are little children. What type of message are these teachers, as figures of authority, sending to these kids? I hope the police can work past the stubborn teacher's union and get to the bottom of this.
It's funny that I found this song at the top of my suggested results, mainly because this is the absolute PERFECT example of a rap song that steps out of the stereotypical rap music category. Quincy Hanley, or more popularly known as Schoolboy Q, uses this track to send a pretty good message to people, surprisingly enough. Sure, it has a lot of derogatory, "bad" words in it, but it's a very inspiring song if you look past that.
This article was very meaningful to me, mainly because this is an issue I have been struggling with this entire year. CSU Channel Islands was not my first choice school by any means. I had dreams of attending a UC my entire life. So, I worked diligently throughout high school, and subsequently graduated as a valedictorian with a 4.2 gpa. But unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get me to a UC or Cal Poly SLO because of the cost. My parents are able to support my college funds, but only to a certain degree. So, I chose to be rational, save money, and come to school here. And I was somewhat embarrased of that- all my friends were off to UCSB, UCLA, and Stanford while I was stuck at a Cal State. I was worried it would affect my future, specifically my acceptance into graduate school. However, I'm starting to realize that a degree is a degree, and most people, in reality, could care less about where you recieved it.
UK's Telegraph reports that research by Leeds University finds that up to a third of strip club dancers are students, with most entering the adult entertainment industry to pay their way through a course.
This article was very interesting, and honestly, it caught my eye because this concept has become a joke between a lot of college students. Quite a lot of female students that I know have always teased about turning to stripping just to pay for their unreasonable price of education, but the reality is, a lot of women are. It's definitely something to ponder - if you can make so much money working a job that requires virtually no education, then why bother going to school? Obviously, there are MANY things wrong with an occupation such as stripping, but it's a fair point to bring up.
I think this is a good start for non scholarly articles on my research topic of left handedness. This is, after all, the first question people ask when the topic is brought up - "Why are there so few left handed people?" Well, this is a logical look at why that's true. it explains, in a very clear way, how humans are not cooperative, and as we've evolved, we have fostered the idea of competition, and this has led to why there will always be a small number of left handed individuals. This article does point out the advantages of being left handed in a number of sports, and that might be an aspect I want to include in my essay.
Although this is just a reference to another article, if you follow the link to Philip Bump's article, it's actually pretty insightful. No, he doesn't seem to be anyone of any stature. Is he credible? It's doubtful. But this article did help me realize that at least the topic I'm interested in is evident in news. People are asking themselves the exact same question that I am - is rap music really the horrible, crime causing rubbish that most Americans see it as? Or is it simply an outlet of creative expression, just in a way we are not particularly used to?
