  • In my project I wrote a timeline about the history of Sunnyside. From its beginnings as a farm to the present day, where it is currently dealing with gentrification issues.

  • There could potentially be new drug laws to be created. Which means it could increase the amount of people going to prison. But, there’s also a chance of people’s sentences to be increased, instead of decreasing. There is a chance it could be the other way around. Only time will tell what President Trump plans to do.

  • The fact that the criminal justice system is broken is a very bad thing. There needs to be solution to this problem. “Not only does the United States alone hold a quarter of all prisoners, a majority tend to be those of the lower SES and/or a minority group.” This is a sign as this is getting truly out of hand. It is even true that the United…[Read more]

  • Countries around the world are having all sorts of issues, ranging from public space to labor reforms. On the date, March 31, 2016, France became another country with an issue that concerns its citizens around […]

    • It is important to see how public space plays such an important role in this movement. Sometimes we have to remember that if there was no public space, our concerns wouldn’t be heard and therefore change would be almost impossible. I agree, it is completely debating what these companies are doing to their citizens, and the fact that they won’t get any financial support after losing there job may really put them in a lower economic living standard. What we must remember is that they are all united and fighting together in order to achieve their goal, they are all able to be together, this is all thanks to the public space where they can unite as a group and discuss ways to make a stand, and hopefully there could be a true change in the french labor force.

    • I’m glad that they could protest, it is so unjust and they do not deserve that. People have every right to speak their mind and these public spaces are everything for these situations where the people are standing up for what they believe for. Its so sad to see that companies would do something like that and could treat humans so low. Its amazing that never thought of public space was so important.

    At a time, when the country was going through such turmoil, the United States needed something that could help people’s lives in all areas. The New Deal helped out in many ways including the Housing Act of 1934. Thanks to this, people were able to afford mortgages and buy homes. This also helped out people by letting them save money and pay their…[Read more]

  • According to Goldsmith and Blakely, there are apparently three things behind people being poor. The first thing is that people do not try hard enough in school. This is the most common since people have a high tendency to become lazy and not try hard enough in school. If you don’t try hard enough in school, you’ll have a harder time being able to…[Read more]

  • During one of my classes today, there was a short article I received. The article was about how the federal government doesn’t steal our social security number. On the article, the federal government says they don’t steal it. Although, there is skepticism on whether that is true or not. The writer thinks its true that the federal government isn’t…[Read more]

  • I agree with your point of view of the article “Team names and Mascots”. I never pay attention to these particular things. It is dehumanizing to twist another culture’s customs and traditions into giving it a different representation. As people we should be looking at all cultures and religions the way its perceived by its people.

  • In the article “Team names and Mascots” the writer talks about the use of a mascot in the form of a Native American. This is unusual and unheard since schools regularly use animals as the mascot of the school. The writer even states “Some teams use generic Indian names, such as Indians, Braves, or Chiefs, while others adopt specific tribal names…[Read more]

  • This is my response to Martin Luther King Jr’s “letter from Birmingham Jail” paper. In the letter King talks about the issue that his methods of justice is “unwise and untimely” King’s work is also getting criticism because they think, most people of Birmingham, it isn’t justice. The main reason that King’s in Birmingham in the first place is…[Read more]
