Ever noticed how similar people are grouped together? Even in culturally rich melting pots like Miami, for example. Though there is a plethora of cultures there, most are organized by culture, explaining ethnic neighborhoods. No matter how diverse an area is, people still tend to stick close to those who are culturally similar to them. So while there may be culturally rich cities, they always end up dividing themselves. It's inevitable. -Brooke
Most Americans think of prejudice as animosity toward people in other groups. But two psychologists argue that unconscious bias — often in the form of giving some people special treatment — is the way prejudice largely works in America today.
Prejudice doesn't just come in killings, or war, or even direct insults. Although we are blind to our actions, we are being indirectly prejudice by being selectively giving in our everyday lives. We stress about being a generous society, but are we giving to everyone in the community, or just a select few that are similar to us? Same goes with OVER-giving- we tend to give MORE to our friends and family, and LESS to those diverse from us. Prejudice hasn't gone away, it's just been masked by something we believe is a good action. -Brooke
Whether or not Ukraine's actions have been "extreme" or not, it is clear that them and Russia are no longer on the same page. Ukraine strives for freedom. But where did this random yearn for freedom come from? Sure, everyone wants freedom and recognizes when they don't have it. But they're reflecting the rest of the world-More developed countries that are also fighting for more rights, like the United States. Will this feud influence other countries that have also influenced them? Will it teach countries, like the United States, to go against treaties and force people to give them what they want? Time can only tell.-Brooke
No matter which is their childhood, or primary, language, bilingual people have proved to gravitate towards the language that provides them with a connection, rather than their hearth language, which can be plagued by trauma or grief. Bilingual people's language habits have began to transform into a stereotypical assumption, assuming that they always use their hearth language to express emotion. No matter why they have a second language, whether it be because of a job, or a spouse, that language may have provided them with a better life, allowing them to escape the bad memories from their "core" language. So, it is not always safe to associate bilingual people with their cultural background, but the language that has been associated with better memories.-Brooke
When suburban areas starting increasing, it had several advantages- Bigger homes, better education, a yard to call your own. These advantages are beginning to be shadowed by several factors that are actually pushing people out of these suburban areas and changing the urban pattern in our cities. Will people start to swarm in the central business district, or will rural areas reign? -Brooke
Education is a major factor in Economic Development, it allows not only children but teenagers and adults as well to have the opportunity to acquire a job good enough to support their family. Decline in fertilty most certainly does not have as much of an impact on Economic Development as education, because it affects the quantitative and qualitative changes in the economy. ~Deanna

Less developed countries will not develop at the rate they are going, so it is nice to see more developed countries stepping in to give these less fortunate countries a boost. They can most certainly be a model of industrialization for these countries to mimic, and will hopefully follow in their steps for a successful development. -Brooke
I agree that the United Kingdom is overpopulated, if the citizens moved to more rural places and spread out more then the United Kingdom wouldn't be overpopulated. On the subject of women being turned away in maternity wards, I think if you are a citizen of that country, you shouldn't be turned away.
It is sad to think that two different religions can't live in peace together. What caused these two groups to start fighting? Why have they resulted to killing innocent people over a problem that could have been resolved or avoided? These are all questions that should have crossed the minds of the people who started this. Will this be a repeat of the genocide in Rwanda or will this situation sort itself out without taking an abundance of lives? ~Deanna
20 years after the genocide in Rwanda, these perpetrators and survivors are standing for forgiveness.
The Kingdom Keepers's insight:
It is a great idea to inform these people of peace and getting along, and even better that these people who participated in the genocide in Rwanda are apologizing for their crimes against these families. It is best for these two groups of people to get along to help prevent further threats of genocide between Hutus and Tutsis and many other people. If other countries can see these groups of people, who once hated each other, getting along it may help prevent genocide in many other countries. ~Deanna
English is the most widespread and used language all over the world. In this century English is the most common language and second language in many countries. It is suggested in many places for English to be used as a second language, because it is used primarily in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. English is also the most used language on the internet, requiring many people to learn it in order to use the internet. ~Deanna
Suburbs are a major part of today's society. A large portion of our land is covered in suburbs, so it should be the main priority of the contractors, and designers of these suburbs to make them well put together and livable. Although it is in the public's best interest to make these homes inexpensive, they should also be well built or there would be no point in building them. ~Deanna
Social media websites have grown more and more popular over time, but now these websites are helping people in the Heath Industry. People use social media to share things with others and stay in contact with people, but the thing that is helping those in the medical feild is that people are posting, commenting, and sharing their medical experiences, opinions, and causes.
Although women may not have a crucial role in farming in some areras, that is rapidly changing as new technology, as well as recognition to women, is being produced. Including women seems to have several negatives, such as having to pay to educate them, but the overall product will benefit the population greatly by providing more food and services and employing women to generate equality in jobs for men and women. -Brooke
It really doesn’t matter which side of the debate you’re on. The facts about genetically modified organisms for food consumption is a topic the people really need to understand before making a decision.
Genetically modified crops are a very large debate throughout the world. Whether or not they are safe for human use, if we, as the consumers, have a right to know what is in our food, and if using these chemicals in our crops is really worth all the money and time it takes to produce them. While many tests show that GMO crops are safe, there have also been animal tests that show that these crops can cause immune disregulation, altered liver function, and changes in the pancreas, kidney and spleen. I do not think that people should take these risks by eating these crops, considering that we are unaware of the side effects that may come with these crops. ~Deanna
With 1 billion people chronically hungry and Earth's population expected to increase by 50% before the end of the century, it's time to get serious about family planning.
The Kingdom Keepers's insight:
Although I agree that the world is overpopulated, I feel as though overpopulation is blamed for things that it is not responsible for. For example, people blame poverty on overpopulation, but in reality, if we distributed food equally among people, people would not be starving. Overpopulation is clearly not the cause of poverty.
