Noel Lawrence's curator insight, February 1, 2015 11:40 PM

This article talks about how the American people are now starting to get concerned about global warming or now as it known "climate change". The change has a very big impact in the future of the people and many people in the government are also trying to get the EPA regulations in affect to help the world be a better place.

Samantha Maldonado's curator insight, February 2, 2015 4:00 PM

I found this article really interesting because it shows how climate change is an important issue to us, the people. It might not the biggest one, but it sure does concern us. It is important to note that climate change is not just something the democrats are trying to help reduce, because it did surprise me when I read that about 48% of the republicans would support a candidate who wants to fight climate change. I feel like climate change will be an important issue for candidates running for the 2016 elections because the candidates' view on this issue will affect the way people vote. That could either be a positive or negative thing because this gives candidates campaigning ideas and so. I just really hope that the government does not stop worrying about climate change and actually help it because eventually, that will help us. And if no one cares about fighting it, I feel like the effects will just hurt us a lot more than what we thought later on in life. 

Dorian Fernandez's curator insight, March 5, 2015 9:39 AM

i am glad to know that our nations leaders see the worlds climate as important as other social issues.

Affordable Care Act -- Support & Opposition per State

6 Anderson Calloway's curator insight, January 15, 2015 2:11 PM

This map deals with federalism. It displays the level of support of Obamacare in each state. The federal government offers assistance with medical care fees. Mandates have been given to many Americans to have health insurance and to employers to provide more employees with health insurance. Obamacare/ACA is meant to help low income families/people with obtaining an affordable health insurance policy. The federal government aims to give more Americans easier access to medical attention. I till think the government is stepping over the line with Obamacare.

3 Boss Taylor's curator insight, January 15, 2015 3:57 PM

This map is an illustration of federalism and how all states might not agree on a particular law. This map shows the support and opposition of the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare per state. This map provides a view that most Southern states are opposed to the Affordable Care Act, Northern states support it, Midwestern states are in the middle and some state oppose it, and Western states support it with a few exceptions of states opposing it.  This map connects to federalism because it shows a division in the nation about the Affordable Care Act similar to the division in the nation when the topic was about adopting a Constitution. This map may not be reliable because people views on particular view change everyday. From this map I learned that federal and states powers overlap each other.

In January of 2011, a revolution started in Egypt due to the fact that the people wanted democracy. Arab Spring started when a vegetable stand owner set himself on fire causing a wave of protest to occur. The president of Egypt resigned and SCAF, the military, took over the government while waiting for elections to be held; however, after a year people started to protest this wanting democracy. Morsi is soon elected as president. And of course the U.S. got involved and tried started a coup even though the government didn't want to call it that.

The changing landscape of same-sex marriage

The changing landscape of same-sex marriage | Hardin AP Government | Scoop.it
Proponents of same-sex marriage have had a string of successes around the country since the Supreme Court struck a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act in U.S. v. Windsor. Currently, 17 states, plus the District of Columbia, allow same-sex marriage, and 33 states prohibit it.

10.. For me Personally i do not care if you are homosexual or bisexual. But i do not believe you should allowed to be married. Same sex marrige is only banned in 3 states in the the united States, Georgia, Nebraska, and North Dakota. The majority of the States Allow it and a good chunk are still waiting on their appeals and futher actions. Over the last 10 years the scale of those who oppose and support gay marriage have completly swapped. The 18-29 age group has the most supporting percent, which is not suprsing because being homosexual became more popular in the more recent years. Also the Republican party is still mostly opposed to the thought of same sex marriage.

2 Grainger Andrew's curator insight, March 6, 2015 12:06 AM

I chose a map to look at and scoop. This map shows the support for same sex marriage. 17 states are in support for same sex marriage. 33 states prohibit the same sex marriage. I prefer that same sex marriage is prohibited. And I live in georgia where same sex marriage is prohibited

3 bradley jordan's curator insight, March 6, 2015 2:42 AM

since DOMA was deemed unconstitutional in twenty thirteen, gay rights has rightfully become the next issue on every ones mind, as of today 37 states allow same sex marriage and thirteen states do not the people who a re for same sex marriage are mostly younger people eighteen to thirty nine and slightly and majority of republicans opposes same sex marriage .but it does not matter because soon us gays will take over the world (=

This article talks about past presidents and some things that they did, and how shy and or outgoing and free with the public some of them were.

Brandon Hua's curator insight, November 18, 2014 11:08 PM

The presidents are also celebrities in a way because how they present themselves to the vast majority would impact heavily on people because the president is the head of the country and everyone is looking up to ask a example of leader that guides everyone through the mud.

David Luo's curator insight, December 11, 2014 7:42 PM

The bold actions of both Theodore Roosevelt and his cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt have turned the POTUS into an American celebrity. TR's action following his assassination attempt and FDR's inability to walk would have been fatal flaws for a president of today. However, both these actions have also benefited the office of POTUS as it has bought celebrity status to the office.

Artificial Intelligence May Doom The Human Race Within A Century, Oxford ... - Huffington Post | Hardin AP Government | Scoop.it

Horses were initially complemented by carriages and ploughs, which greatly increased the horse's productivity. Later, horses were substituted for by automobiles and tractors. When horses became obsolete as a source of labor, many were sold off to meatpackers to be processed into dog food, bone meal, leather, and glue. In the United States, there were about 26 million horses in 1915. By the early 1950s, 2 million remained.

UNIT 4

This is a gif showing 100 years of American politics. It shows the changing influence of each party from 1918 to 2012. There was a lot of red states at one point and there were a lot of blue states at one point. For instance, in 1920 The north and south were split with the north being republican and the south being democrat. Nowadays, they are more integrated.
