When reading this article it is amazing how Brazil decided to build new stadiums for the FIFA Wold cup. Instead of helping their economy prosper, they have decided ti spend millions of dollars building new infrastructures and making bigger stadiums in order to attract tourists and allow for more money to come into their nation. I do not know exactly how to feel but i do know that they did not have to take this approach. Gives me second thoughts of whether or not they will be making their money back from all the stadiums they have built.
-▶ WHY GEOENGINEERING SUITS RUSSIA'S CARBON AGENDA, GIVEN THE COUNTRY'S FOSSIL FUEL STRATEGY IN THE ARCTIC The Arctic, a large portion of which is controlled or claimed by Russia, is a new carbon El Dorado, holding up to a quarter of the globe’s undiscovered oil and gas reserves. According to one energy industry insider: "Climate change is opening up one of the last frontiers for hydrocarbons on our planet. The Arctic … could be set for rapid change and development as exploration, production and infrastructure will have an inevitable, irreversible impact." http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/sep/24/why-geoengineering-suits-russias-carbon-agenda

When reading this article i find it amazing what is going on around the world. Places like Antarctica are changing dramatically in ways people are not in control of. What used to be an icy and colder places is now deteriorating and melting. I find it scary in a way because what else is going to change as the years go by. What are the next generation of people going to be apart of or get to witnesses now that many places and things are coming closer to be extinct.
"Drugs as cookies mean I have to talk to my older children about drugs without the natural barriers created by the need to shoot them into veins, roll them up and smoke them, or ingest them in other complicated ways. Drugs as gummy bears mean I need to teach my younger children about eating candy found in unexpected places. Drugs as chocolate mean we’re going to need to talk to our children and teenagers, particularly our daughters, about the dangers of treats from unexpected or unfamiliar sources."
This article, by far has been the best one iv read. It talks about the many forms and transformation marijuana takes. it is now shown that marijuana will take the part of ordinary looking candy bars and ordinary looking candy. this is a serious issue because it is now more appealing to younger children out in the world. whether the child thinks its regular candy or looks very good, they are now targeted by this substance. I believe this is wrong in many levels.Children should not be targeted by this crap. Yes we can educate the children but when have u personally seen a child listen to an adult about eating candy from an unknown source. People and companies all over the nation give out free candy all the time. This is definitely an eyebrow raising issue that has to be looked at very closely.
"Children who have experienced three or more stressful events are six times more likely to suffer from a mental, physical, or learning disorder than children who have never faced a traumatic experience, and these health problems may take hold immediately, according to a University of Florida study."
When reading this article i found a lot of things interesting. One of which was that a child can be easily dramatized or can develop disorders way before doctors ever expected. Findings have found that children's lives can be effected at very young rather than when they become adults. Such problems like " parental divorce, economic hardship, exposure to domestic and neighborhood violence, poor caregiver mental health, exposure to drug abuse, and having a parent in jail." As many can see there are plenty or variables that can cause these kids to be traumatized. Because there is no obvious cure, we as the people should take in consideration and act in a way where a child can only prosper from our behaviors.
After reading this article, i have mixed emotions of how america is being ran and how the government operates, not that i hadn't before or anything. Gets me to think that maybe that is the issue why so many countries hate us as Americans. Although i can not blame the U.S for its actions based on what went down during 9/11. We did loose a lot of people which makes us hard to trust others. Yes, this story makes the U.S look bad, but when has there been there been a perfect society and nation.
Is annotation really worth it? After reading this article, it re-enforces my belief that annotating when reading is very critical and helps you understand what is really going on. Although, i myself, only tend to underline and write on the side of the page, i found that using different symbols is also very helpful. As a reader, you have to develop a way of doing things. The ways that catch your interest and do not bore you 5 minutes into doing things.. So next time the teacher asks you to read, there should not be any doubts in your mind whether or not you should annotate.
