EJ JANSEN's insight:

I don't know if I completely understand. I'm all for justice but I don't know how I feel about this song. It a weird mix of injustice and justice so I don't know. I think people should go back to writing love songs. Murder songs bother me.

Tell Winter Olympics City Not... - The Petition Site | Homework | Scoop.it
Russia has recently started capturing wild orcas for display and export. As has become all too obvious... (9168 signatures on petition)

EJ JANSEN's insight:

This made me sad. I think that the whales should be free. But mostly, the whales should not be in captivity just in the fact of human risk. The whales have a tendency to hurt people when in captivity. All and all this article states the whale should be freed.

Emma Murphy's curator insight, December 11, 2013 11:48 PM

Two wild caught Orcas are scheduled to be put on display at the Winter Games in Sochi.  The Russian city of Sochi, host of the 2014 Winter Olympics, is in the process of procurring two killer whales to display during the winter games.  It appears that the orcas will be used to help increase profits at a time when tourists will flood the city to watch these elite athletes perform.  This is completely wrong.

Orcas should not be among the attractions for the winter olympics.  Orcas do not adapt well to captivity.  Look at what has happened over the past few years at Sea World and the behavior of captive orcas with their trainers?  I sincerely hope that petitions and animal right activists can prevent this sort of thing from happening.  Perhaps we should start a petition at Aspen Academy to free the orcas back to the ocean where they belong!

EJ JANSEN's insight:

This is incredible. I think people are thinking of new ways to make art. I think creativity is a big part of who you are and art is big in the creativity session. I think art is slowly becoming bigger and bigger in  pop culture.

Patrick Williams's curator insight, November 21, 2013 7:33 PM

I think this is so cool! As the years go by, I just think everyone is getting created with everything now using more and more stuff for their projects or ideas! This girl is very talented! I wasnt so good with pipe cleaners and it seems so easy to her!

EJ JANSEN's insight:

I think this is a interesting article. I think it is cool to foucus on one war but all should still be  represted. I think the parade will be a be a sight to see. I also think Veterans Day is often over looked. It is a very important Holliday.

In the arena of arts and entertainment, this year saw the death of one who was hugely influential though not technically an entertainer at all.
EJ JANSEN's insight:

Very sad. I think that most of the people in the article had a impact on the world and people should look up to these people. But then again Cory died from an over dose so that's not good. I believe everyone should make an impact on the world. That also means small things.

RIGA, Latvia – At least 32 people died, including three firefighters, after large sections of roof collapsed at a Latvian, the country's rescue service said Friday.
EJ JANSEN's insight:

This is sad. The first paragraph is depressing. I think that they need to find a way to figure out how it happened so it doesn't happen again. I wonder how many people are still stuck? How can we stop this from happening again?
