The pure hatred shown by these people is absolutely astounding, and how unwarranted it seems is shocking. The way the man speaks of wanting to murder the man with zero moral qualms is horrific. To brutally kill someone, just because they don't have the same cultural beliefs as you, really makes me sick. -Hannah
Genocide makes me sick to me stomach knowing that some people don't like another persons beliefs or skin color or even their ethnicity so they try and entirely wipe out the entire group of people. Genocide needs to stop NOW. Think about all the innocent people dying over ignorance, It's completely corrupt. -Gavin MIllan
Many Americans believe that racism is a thing of the past. However, ongoing racist acts are still seen today through black people in poverty being accused of being poor due to their color. As the article entails, the percentage of blacks living in poverty is greater than whites living in poverty. I think that regardless of color, each individual can break past the barriers of racist overtones to achieve their goals in life. -Scout
The tragedy of this event can not be understated. Hundreds of thousands of Tutsis killed due to false propaganda and a twisted leader. What is even more sickening however, is the fact that the western powers didn't jump in because they still classified the unjustified killing as a "civil war". -Hannah
This article is about how close race and ethnicity are but how mixed up they get. People often interchange the two for what they mean. It goes to show what race is and what ethnicity is. Then it shows the difference between the two. Race and ethnicity are not the same thing. -Landon:)
Columbus Ledger-Enquirer Obama talks tough to Russia about Ukraine and Crimea; events unclear Columbus Ledger-Enquirer WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Friday that he is “deeply concerned” by reports Russia had sent troops into Ukraine's...
I believe this article is about all the events between Russia / Crimea. I feel since President Obama is stepping in this could be real serious, It has already gotten to the that point. I believe we should stay out of this until another country steps in. -Landon ;)
With Russian troops lurking around every corner in Crimea, was Crimea's decision to incorporate into Russian federation really their choice? The presence of Russian troops in Crimea has been strongly felt, and I believe that Russia bullied their way of receiving votes in Crimea by the military intimidating them into voting for Russia. -Scout
by Dr. Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) – The USA and EU have imposed sanctions on Russia and Crimea after Sunday’s referendum and the Crimean government’s application for accession into the Russian Federation.
I believe that these sanctions are perfectly justifiable. Crimea's freedom is being ripped away from them by Russia, leaving them with no other option then to comply to their demands. Hopefully President Obama will be able to accomplish something for the good of Crimea when he meets with the members of NATO. -Hannah
A great number of scientific studies have proven that speaking more than one language makes the human brain more flexible and enables faster information processing. Scientific studies have also proven that speaking more than one language has many benefits in terms of travel, love, intelligence... http://elearninginfographics.com/language-learning-benefits-infographic/
I think that every citizen should learn more than one language to be able to contribute an intellectual edge to society. By people speaking more than one language, we would be able to communicate better with peers. European countries require their youth to learn different languages. Despite English dominating, our education system should offer language courses to be globally infused. -Scout
Online crime maps making it easier for public to spot trends, judge their own risk Pioneer Press Maps have been used to analyze crime patterns since the early 1800s, and computerized versions have been around for decades.
The internet is becoming increasingly reliable to citizens in their county or city. The internet can help citizens now more than ever! Especially with crime. Now citizens can look on their website to keep being updated about the current situations. Hopefully the internet will keep becoming more and more reliable.
In the recent years, our country has been in a recession. People have been financially struggling and cities are now trying to give them a helping hand by establishing innovative, money saving services. I think an upside to America's economic decline is that we as citizens are turning to creative solutions to save money. Also, most of these services offer green alternatives that will reduce emissions, but also reduce pollution. -Scout
I think cell phone development in impoverished countries will increase globalization throughout the world. The rise of people in financially struggling countries attaining cell phones will allow communication to be more frequent and will hopefully kickstart the beginning of a technologically in-sync world.-Scout
A Tennessee state senator has introduced a bill that would abolish diversity programs, ban diversity officers and end preference based on race, ethnicity and gender on college campuses in the Voluntee...
While the senator wants to ban diversity programs to reach equality among students, he is also taking away the pride of culture among students with different preferences based on race, ethnicity, and gender. By removing diversity programs, the senator is creating a cookie cutter, bland group of people. Beliefs define people, it makes them unique. Banning diversity programs would be a poor decision to make because a diverse group of people each having something different to add to the pot. -Scout
This video depicts the horror and what these people went through during genocide. It shows that this needs to be a stopped and make people aware. Genocide is an epidemic that has been displayed in this video. -Landon
As a traveler, as well as when I am just walking through my own city, I have often been approached by people asking me where I’m from, what’s my ethnicity, and what’s my race, using them all interchangeably to imply the same question. As a lover of travel, as well as a staunch... http://www.dauntlessjaunter.com/2012/03/26/ethnicity-nationality-race-heritage-culture/ #Background, #Culture, #CultureVs, #CultureVsEthnicity, #CultureVsHeritage, #CultureVsNationality, #CultureVsrace, #Difference, #Ethnicity, #EthnicityVs, #EthnicityVsCulture, #EthnicityVsHeritage, #EthnicityVsNationality, #EthnicityVsRace, #Heritage, #HeritageVs, #HeritageVsCulture, #HeritageVsEthnicity, #HeritageVsNationality, #HeritageVsRace, #HumanRights, #Macroethnicity, #Nationality, #NationalityVs, #NationalityVsCulture, #NationalityVsEthnicity, #NationalityVsHeritage, #NationalityVsRace, #Race, #RaceVs, #RaceVsCulture, #RaceVsEthnicity, #RaceVsHeritage, #RaceVsNationality, #WhatIsYourEthnicity, #WhatIsYourHeritage, #WhereAreYouFrom
I used to thing ethnicity and race were similar, but in reality race is more like physical like the color you are. Ethnicity is like what group that you belong to, its like where your ancestors came from. Although, African American can be defined as both, an ethnicity and race.
The G8 suspending Russia could be a positive because Russia needs to realize that they are in no way good shape. Their government has to pay the state bonds and it is at an all time near high. Not to mention foreign capital reserves for Russia are at a multi-year low. Once Russia wakes up and realizes the situation they are in the better off they will be. -Gavin
"The cost of assuming that foreign customers will learn your language, and never bothering to learn theirs, is certainly a lot greater than zero. The world isn’t learning English as fast as some people think. One optimistic estimate is that half the world’s people might speak English by 2050. That leaves billions who will not, and billions of others who remain happier (and more willing to spend money) in their own language."
As highlighted by this article, I strongly believe that learning a second language such as Arabic or Mandarin would be extremely beneficial to an adolescent. These languages are profitable to learn due to the fact that we are having increasing business dealings with China and the fact that there is a high demand for people who speak these languages and a short supply.- Hannah
I love learning new languages, though I can still only speak two with fluency, and another two with mediocrity. But lately I’ve been fascinated by learning them, so much so that I’ve taken several up at once. I came back from Poland and France last month and was switching back and... http://www.dauntlessjaunter.com/2012/04/17/is-a-language-exchange-the-way-to-go/ #Exchange, #Fluency, #Language, #LanguageExchange, #LanguageLearning, #LearningLanguages
I believe that learning new languages will be a necessity in the future. Especially ones that are out of your comfort zone. The language I feel all people should start to learn is Mandarin, since the Chinese are one of the major MDC's and are growing rapidly. I feel that all future company's will in some way require its employees to learn some different language. -Gavin
I believe this article is about language and how when kids don't get the attention or affection they act out in their second language. This used to be known as a myth. However through research this is known to be true. This has been thought to be because of their parents. -Landon ;)
This artical is mainly about how urban sprawl is making it back. The recent revival of the economy has caused this market to skyrocket. People really dont want this sprawl to occar. Overall i believe this is a good idea. -Landon

The idea of employing the usage of a forecasting program to predict crime is quite intriguing, and so are the results of the program. It is seemingly a very useful tool used to map this kind of urban pattern, and hopefully, will help squander crime. -Hannah
Communities help pay for ecosystem services provided by forestsHigh Country NewsIn 1996 and 2002, major forest fires scorched the Upper South Platte River watershed.
The Crew's insight:
Even though it was a horrible thing that happened, Denver is lucky that the Forest Service helped them out. Thanks to them, they now have more drinking water than they would've if they didn't sign the agreement. And now, they recently make watershed health one of its main priorities!-Gavin
I believe that this allocation of money is very wise, and that a stronger system of mental health services in Hartford is very necessary. Discovering these mental illnesses in a school environment will get aid to these children more quickly, and hopefully create an overall more safe environment. -Hannah
