The article to know how to have empathy for others.Â
EMPATHY Introduction Think about the others. Being left out feels TERRIBLE. Unfortunately, a lot of students at FDR have felt the same way and that is not a good thing. Not only at FDR, but in other schools from Lima too. Some even want to change schools because of this problem that is happening and then they make it happen. Including others and treating others the way you want to be treated is the way this needs to be fixed.
Fun fact: "Anxiety Levels Influence Empathy"
Real-Life Cases We Are All Equal
Example of Reality I have been at FDR since EC-3, that is about 9 years now, and I was always taught that treating others the way you want to be treated is the golden rule. Every year I was . taught this, even in now, in 6th grade, but apparently, not everyone shows this behavior. I’ve experienced it and I have noticed it. At FDR we have had a lot of activities to make inclusion not a problem anymore. I don’t know if it helps you, but it should make you realize that it is something that is not only for you but for everyone and it will be something you need to demonstrate and not just take it as an activity that is just for fun. I’ve had a situation with other people that some people didn’t want to include others because they were new to the school or they didn’t know each other so well. I think it was unfair because you wouldn’t like to be treated in that way, or would you? Just imagine how would you have felt. Just think that you would want to have a group of friends because you are new and you want to feel included and you try to fit in, but they won’t notice you. That would be terrible.
Exclusion First of all, not treating others the way you want to be treated is also exclusion. This is because you see everyone in different groups with all their friends and makes you feel sad or shy because they don’t notice you. This is also known as social exclusion. Probably, the person who is excluding you would definitely not like to be treated the same way, so at the same time they do not treat you nicely and they exclude you.
Sometimes, when you feel excluded and not treated nicely, you may also feel different from the others. This is something I have noticed with other persons when they try to fit in. It’s just like a first impression. A common example I have seen a lot, specifically with certain people, is that they try to be really good/close friends if they have a good thing in their life or personality. What I mean by this is that they try to be their friend if they seem pretty as if physically and if they are very social. Meanwhile, that makes you feel different because it's like you don't seem special and everyone should feel special and be treated equally.
How does it feel? Last but not least, it makes students very lonely. Why does this happen? Because you don't realize that many people only like to be with their friends or make friends that have special characteristics like the ones in the last paragraph. Occasionally, students who feel lonely try to be better as a friend or maybe change their personality. And that is not a good thing. According to Friendship Circle, Article 19 Article 19 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities states said, “Parties to this Convention recognize the equal right of all persons with disabilities to live in the community, with choices equal to others, and shall take effective and appropriate measures to facilitate full enjoyment by persons with disabilities of this right and their full inclusion and participation in the community.” You should not try to be someone your not because then when you have a group of friends they will not know your real personality and no one should be judged by their personality. I think personality is a unique thing about yourself and everyone should know about it.
Just think about it again Now you know that being left out and not being treated nicely feels terrible. After all the things that I mentioned, it makes me connect with reallife observations that I know about and how being in other's shoes makes you feel like those who suffer from not being treated nicely. Always keep in mind about how others might feel and always try to hang out with everyone and make them feel nice. So get in other's shoes and start treating others the way you want to be treated.
Stop Using Electronics! By: Aranza Diaz Around I go to enter to my sister’s room, she is mostly watching Netﬂix and Youtube or using her phone or laptop to play games. All of these at the same time. This means that she uses one, two, or even three electronics at the same time. Two hours later they will go to my mom and start complaining about headaches. My mom tells them to stop using electronics and, as always they just ignore her and keep using electronics, again, one, two, or three at the same time. Then, after a bit more time, they are complaining that their eyes are hurting. My mom asks them, “Did you still use electronics?” They will always say yes. At that time
I would think what is this from? Is it from… not moving in a long time? Is it from… watching a lot of TV? From using their phones too much? Using their laptops too much ? All of these suppositions had something in common, electronics. Kids should use fewer electronics.
Spending A Lot Of Time In Electronics: A reporter from CNN named Jacqueline Howard wrote an article that’s named “Kids Under 9 Spend More Than 2 Hours A Day On Screens.” The reporter mentions a lot of things in her article like, “ The report, released Thursday, also found that 42% of children 8 and younger now have their own tablet devices, a steep increase from 7% four years ago and less than 1% in 2011.” This information will mean that of all the children 8 and younger (42%) have already their own electronics and they would
prefer to play games in their device instead of playing outside or being with friends outdoors. Above this she mentions that, “Children 8 and younger spent about 15 minutes a day staring at a mobile screen in 2013 and now they spend 48 minutes a day”. To me this news is so impacting by the way it is shared and by the data it shows. For example I wouldn’t imagine a kid under 8 years old spent so much time like, 48 minutes a day, with electronics.
Is In Danger:
Not only are you kids using screens for a long time each day but adults are also doing this. Electronics also makes your body feel strange and it impacts by the ways like your health a lot. Bustle has an article named “ 5 Things Too Much Screen Time Does To Your Body” (written by JR Thorpe and published on October 26 2015). This article mentions that, “According to Psychology Today, one of the fundamental consequences that a large amount of screen time has on adults is a restructuring of the matter that makes up your brain.” It also mentions a few more ways that electronics impact you: “ Metabolic syndrome combines diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure; it's a pretty toxic cocktail of poor health, apparently linked to an abnormally sedentary lifestyle. But it's pretty well-recognised by the medical community that too much screen time is seriously bad for the peepers.” This news will mean that if you spend more time or a lot of time online you can have
children’s media use can have a big impact on how their brains process information, outwardly
diabetes, turn obese, or even have high blood pressure. That way we can see that electronics impact your health in very big and dangerous ways. We should start to use less electronics because it can impact your health in more ways. If you want more information about this check the text box on the top to see in what more ways electronics can a ect us.
It Affect your
In the article from “Center Of Media And Child Health” named “Brain
Development” they say that, “As the brain isn’t fully developed until young adulthood,
a ecting how they react to and remember events in any given situation.” This article is trying to tell kids to use less electronics. This is because it a ects how your brain is developed in negative ways that can impact you a lot. It also a ects how you react to given situations that happen in life. For example imagine if we stop using electronics we would react to some situations better than how we do. In conclusion, I would love to see my sister interacting more with nature, like playing outside, playing with her toys, any of these but interacting less with electronics, devices, or other technological device . This research and data were so impacting to me because I didn’t know that only using devices could a ect you a ton in matter of health. So better try to not use that much electronics, just for 5 minutes, try to play outside having fun or reading a bo
Being Social By Katie Dunn
alking to McDonald's, we sat down
and ordered. In the distance from another table, I saw a group of people across from us playing on their electronics. They didn’t even say a word. One was on his phone texting to the person next to him. I thought inside my head, “They aren’t very social, how would they know each other personally?” According to the website BrainyQuote the person JR says, “The more social media we have, the more we think we're connecting, yet we are really disconnecting from each other.” I think we should follow what he says because for example, you know someone in real life and you always play online games together. You think that your connecting but your not because you're not having a face to face conversation. Imagine a world where there were no social media, everyone was playing together talking to each other, socializing as a community The world would like a better and happier place to be playing all together!
How is technology bad for your social life? Technology is bad for your social life because when you are in a face to face conversation it gets very awkward because you're used to talking by texting to one another. The thing is, since you don’t talk to people face to face you are more likely to be comfortable talking online instead of talking to someone in real life.
The good things about being social. The good things about being social are that you can have friends to talk too, and whenever you are in trouble or hard times your friends can help. Also as reported by the website Simplemost, it is proven that being social can make you more productive when working. Also an addition to being social, you can have lots of fun playing with your friends, instead of by yourself.
7 Steps you can take to be more social. 1. Is to not compare yourself to others. Everyone is different and also don’t worry about others when you can make yourself better and interesting 2. Is to always smile! Everyone wants to be around people who are happy. Also, people will more likely talk to people who are happy then those who are mad. 3. Is to try and meet/talk to people every day, whether it is your family or old friends. This will build your comfort to talk to people more. 4. Ask people about themselves. People love talking about themselves and if you want to be even more social just even say a “little how is your day?” 5. Is to call old friends or have a BBQ, so you can meet new people and hang out.
6. Since you are now very sociable after doing these steps you should be able to talk to people normally and not mumble when speaking. Also, you will have many more friends so you can have a fun time with them!
A Game That You Can Play To Be More Social. A game that you can play to be more social is the “Free Social Skills Game!” The purpose of the game is to build your social skills. It gives you situations and you place the card in the I Know My Feelings, I Know What Is Wrong, and I Know What To Do columns.
Facts ● Being social can make you less likely to catch a cold. ● You’ll live longer ● Get better sleep ● Less likely to be depreesed ● Your brain stays sharper
Why Read? BY:CAYETANA ESPINOSA
It was a Saturday morning and the house was silent. My family was sound asleep and I, on the other hand, was fully awake. Since reading normally helps me sleep, I pulled a book from my bookshelf, Twilight, my favorite book, and started to read. Hours passed and finally, my brother awoke. I could hear the sound the stairs made once my brother stepped on them. Hearing the steps getting closer, I guessed he was in the living room. In that instant, I heard another sound, music. Leaving my book on the bookshelf, I walked into the living room to see what was that sound. Arriving at the living room, I saw my brother, on the couch, playing Geometry Dash on his phone. Recently, we had visited the optometrist because my brother's eyes were itching too much and, guess what? The doctor said it was because of electronics. Of all the things we can do in the morning, why should we use electronics? Why not do something more productive that doesn't have as many negative effects? We, kids, the new generation, have to read more.

Brain Work-out! When you read you don't just use your imagination to transfer the printed stories into reality, it also helps develop and improve skills. CNN researchers found that, “When the young children were being told a story, a number of regions in the left part of the brain become active. These are the areas involved in understanding the meaning of words and concepts and also in memory. These same brain regions have been found to be active when older children listen to stories or read.” Reading is a wonderful indoor activity and, as the CNN researchers said, it is an activity that exercises the literature and memory skills of children. Reading exercises the word understanding and memory skills in your child's brain which are useful tools when in school. These skills help your child use an extensive amount of academic words in his/her essays and helps them to remember various things, such as the book characters names, the plot, etc.
Stressed out. Reading doesn't just help you with your academic work, but it helps you in your daily life too. Imagine, you are preparing for a big math test, and you don't know how to study. What can you do? Well, a study made by the University of Sussex, found out that, by just reading six minutes, your stress levels reduce up to 68 percent! Also, an article of Ideapod, written by Coert Engels, said that reading about the life of other people who live a different lifestyle than you do can make you more open-minded towards that group of people. For example, if you thought that the dark-colored race deserved to be used as slaves and punished because of something they didn't choose, if you read a book of the life of a slave or a book of a dark colored woman or man during the segregation time in the US, you could finally start feeling empathy for them.

Boring Morning. As you hopefully know, reading can be great at times of boredom or when you just want to leave your own world behind. When you read, you are transported into a different world, and maybe at a different time. You can be transported from a magical world, with fairies, dragons, and beautiful princesses that are in need of a rescue or, you can be transported back in time, at a time were there was no such thing as plastic pollution, were the world wasn't as polluted as it is now, when the streets and fields were not dirty with plastic, and were there were no such things as big garbage patches on the ocean. When you are reading, reading for fun, time passes in an instant, you feel like you are stuck into your own personal bubble where time is frozen.
Wouldn't it be fun to go into your brother’s, your sister’s room and see him or her reading, to see him/her without a technological device? I would love to see my brother reading his favorite book series, Wings of Fire, instead of playing Geometry Dash on the living room couch or for him not to destroy his eyes every day when he is playing a video game. I would love for him to do something equally fun but not as harmful, something that may influence his life in a good way. I would love for him to read! So, if you can, promise me something, one day, when you are done with homework, grab a good book, sit on your couch, and, for just 6 little minutes, let the book take you to its world
Bicycles Over Cars Nicolas F.
Personal Story I was riding my bike with my parents to the park. We saw a bus; the bus wasn't moving because there was a red light. When the light turned green the bus let out a lot smoke. My parents and I were shocked because of all of the smoke that was coming out from the bus. Then we all started laughing because of how funny it is to see a lot of smoke coming out of a bus. So then I thought to myself that I’m riding a bike and I’m not polluting at all. I believe that riding a bike is more efficient than using a car because it doesn’t pollute at all. A car is a good mean of transportation, but it sometimes produces a lot of smoke and pollutes our environment. A car also uses gasoline or fossil fuels to power it. On the other hand, bikes don’t use gasoline to power themselves. They use you, you are the
engine that powers the bicycle. A bike is also a good
cardiovascular exercise. One of the disadvantages of using a bike is that it doesn’t go as fast as a car. That’s why people choose cars over bikes. You can also get tired if you are riding a bike and travel long distances. If you live in Miraflores and you are going to La Molina then it’s better to use a car. If you are going somewhere close like a park near your house, then you can use a bike because it’s close to your house. But still people choose cars over bikes
even if the park is blocks away One of the advantages of using a bike is that itâ€™s cheaper. Itâ€™s also easier to put away. For a car you need a garage, a garage in an apartment can cost 40 to 60 dollars per square foot, and a 20 by 20 can cost from 16,000 dollars to 24,000 dollars. A car also needs more air for the tires. Which means more money spent than the amount of money spent using a bike. A car has four wheels while a bike has two. Two wheels means less money and less PSI needed for the tire to inflate. Also a car needs an electric inflator unlike a bike that just need a tire pump which needs to be pumped by hand. Going back to the speed part over the years bike brands have created electric bicycles which is like a motorcycle. Electric bikes or E-bikes for short work with batteries, which need to be recharged once their power has been depleted. Ebikes are also quicker than normal bicycles. Standard E-bikes can reach speeds up to 28 mph or 25 km/h. But the e-bikes stop supporting you until it reaches its maximum speed limitation. On
the left there is a biking route map in route 66which starts at Santa Monica and ends in Chicago. If a tire goes flat because of a nail then you only need to replace the tire, but
for a car you have to replace the whole wheel until you BUY an original one in the place you bought your car. In conclusion, you should choose bikes over cars because overall you spend less money using a bike than using a car.

EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH
DANCE By Tessa Gonzalez Ferrette
You spin around, your arms and legs moving to the beat of the music playing from the speakers around you. You hear gasps and a few cheers from supporting friends and family. Then the song ends and the music starts to drift away and a pause of silence makes you nervous. You stand there, unsure what to do, getting worried that you possibly messed up or the audience didn't like it. Then out of nowhere the most deafening applause fills the room and you feel so proud of yourself for finally conquering your fears and the thought that you made people smile or laugh or feel anything with your own expressive dance feels so rewarding...that’s why I do it. Dance has been a huge part of my life for 3½ years and has let me express myself immensely throughout different styles and songs, but most importantly helped me overcome my fear of going up on stage to do something I love. If you ask me, of course I still get nervous but just like a roller coaster you are scared at first but once you get onto the ride, it goes by too quickly while you’re having a lot of fun then when you get off you want to do it NO M Asame D I C as | when 24 again and again, which is the you get onto a stage to dance.
Fitness In Dance: But besides being fun and exciting it is also a good way to stay fit and healthy by increasing your strength in your lungs, heart, muscular strength and endurance in fitness in general. According to the webpage of INDEO, “Approximately 665 postsecondary institutions offer dance minor and major programs in the United States” which I think is really great since then if they are passionate enough, they can keep dance going which can help them physically and emotionally in university and can reduce stress because “ When your body feels good, your mind does to!” says the Arthur Murray's Dance Centers web page. Another reason they think that dance can relieve stress is because when you dance you are in a safe environment and can express yourself freely and with no judgement which can help you stay calmer and stress free.
competing with is you and your limits great. They know that I might mess and values. Dancing or actually any up or get off track or fall but at the end sport doesn’t always need to be even if I do, the applause with give me stressing you with the most courage and pride to do it all competition and work, over again. And that’s why I love it can also just be a dance. But that’s just the feeling relaxing way to without the fun costumes and clothes, spend your time like without the thrill when you actually a profession step onto the stage, or the motivation you get from your peers and family. or hobby... like me! Can you see what I’m trying to get at yet???
When I first started dance, I was a Dance is so fun and can be for bit insecure and nervous to be myself everyone and anyone, which means in front of other classmates and teachers. I couldn’t wrap my mind that also includes you! So go ahead and be yourself, don’t care what around the idea of dancing- no not even-just being on a stage or a platform anyone thinks only think about how where i knew people would recognize you feel and your movements on me and actually see me and think I was stage. Express yourself with your weird or too extra for doing something choice of song and styles, and be in front of an audience or even a few unique with your ideas and with your people was just...*shudder* But hey, expressions. By doing these you can “A flower does not think of look at me now! I still get nervous to go be all you want to be in a dancer, competing to the flower next to it. onstage, still insecure if people see me expressful, unique and yourself! It just blooms,” said Sensei Ousi in his book “Zen Shin Talks” where he shows performing, still shuddering at the you about expressing yourself and thought of recognition. But that’s only finding out your spirituality in life. Throughbefore I get on, before I know that all that quote he wanted to tell you that you those light shining, all the speakers don’t need to compete with other people to tuning, all the people watching, be the best, the only one you should be because they KNOW that I’m gonna be

People should play less videogames because it can affect relationships with your family, mind and health.
By: Angelo William P. Jimenez
Back in the Summer break, there was this one day, I was in my room by myself. You could hear nothing but the sound of concentration and buttons clicking. With the mindset of not dying, the mindset of a fortnite player. But when I die, I have the motivation to go again. Too much can equal deadly pain. That's why people should play fewer video games. According to The Motley Fool article, 27% of gamers are under the age of 18. 26% of people who play games are older than 50, and in between 18-50 47% are gamers. This is IMPORTANT! 27% of the people who play video games under the age of 18 can change the way they think. It can change their mindset, attitude, mood. The average gamer spends 20 hrs a WEEK! Just imagine how much time you spend without your friends or family. In fact, 80 hrs is 4 weeks or one month, When you are playing more then 3 hrs a day on video games, you can experience fatique and migranes in the eyes. If this still keeps up then you can experience poor hygine.
A picture from Sony, there PS4 controller
Imagine, a world when people plays fewer video games. They would use more of the environment because the world is being changed by climate change, trash, and plastic. If the environment is being polluted , then we can’t go outside or get fresh air. That's why we have to make it last before it gets destroyed. According to an article of John Trudell, “The earth is our mother, we must take care of it”. Another website, ModernMom article, The more you play videogames, the more you separate yourself from your family members. You can also miss out on quality family time such as Christmas, Easter, or New Years and more. Just imagine all of your family members eating breakfast together or gathering around the Christmas tree, and there's you just sitting in your parents basement or upstairs in your room just trying to win, or finishing a level. In my family, that would be a shame. Also, the only thing you can’t take back in life is time.
The average American gamer is at age 13. He can play up to 5-7 hours everyday.
HEALTH Health Central, another website, showed that people who play more videogames are going to get less or lack of vitamin D. Vitamin D is a vitamin that helps with your guts. It enables normal mineralization of bone. Also, Vitamin D is a natural fat soluble (Meaning it shows how much fat, acts within the body) and also people who play it, having a lack of sunlight which lacks vitamin D.
Ways to giving up addiction>>> Videogames can also affect your health while playing. People stay up just to play video games to finish a level or complete a quest. This can cause sleep deprivation; sleep deprivation is the condition of not having enough sleep. There’s two conditions of sleep deprivation. Acute and chronic. Chronic sleep deprivation is inability to not control your sleep. Acute sleep deprivation is just very severe sleep deprivation.
Vitamin D pills, helps gain more vitamin D
The real truth >>> In addition to video games affecting your health or your relationship with people, the reason why people play video games and get addicted is because of the satisfaction. According to the article of Britekite, the reason why people are addicted to videogames is because the satisfaction. There’s a lot of things people play a game for but most players play for the satisfaction. This is when a player gets use to the reward system, once the player gets use to it, the mind will want more due to its satisfaction. If you know your addiction is way too far, or you know somebody that has a crazy addiction. Then you possibly have these symptoms for being a videogame addict, According to Level Skip, 1. You spend most of your free time playing video games. Instead of reading or going outside. You think more towards video games then those options 2.You skip or neglect school and work because of video games 3.You ignore family or skip out on family time 4.You are ruining your health, such as sleep, eyes, even mindset 5. Last but not least, you spend your parents money or your money on in-game accessories This is a very bad way of spending money, because if the game is not popular or you’re not going to play it anymore, then you wasted money. Also if you notice some of these things on a person, then that’s how you know if s/he is addicted.
If you are one of these people who plays a lot of videogames or want to help a significant other, friend or family, here are ways you can help people. According to New beginnings, Gamers have the compulsion to play video games. It's like a magnet, it grabs your attention, it grabs your will, then it takes over what you love. So.. 1. Reduce your time, try to play under a limited time strain 2. Do more activities, the more activities you will do, the less you will play 3. Hangout out with family, spend family time rather than playing video games 4. Hangout with friends, spend some time outside and try to be social 5. If your addiction has gone way too far then try to get therapy, this will consider last resort option if your addiction is way to bad. This will help refocus what you want to put your energy into. Also, it can change your feelings and thoughts to help you. It will give you more habits and change your physical environment to help your addiction.
Remember>>> So, with all of this in mind, next time you go on a summer vacation, keep in mind how long you play video games. Playing video games is fine but there could be other things you can do such as, playing outside, read more, and playing sports etc.

Stop Bullying! YOU WILL FIND
THE EFFECTS OF BULLYING IN KIDS
THE MEANING MATTERS
THINK ABOUT IT
Last week while watching YouTube on my cell phone I saw a video that it was supposed to be very funny. But for me, it wasn’t funny. There were some guys saying lots of bad words to another kid. But it wasn’t just that, they ended up in extreme violence. It was just horrendous. Whenever I think about bullying I’m often reminded of lots of kids suffering because of this problem. The simple fact of knowing that every day children are depressed because of bullying generates in me a sad feeling. People need to know that bullying is bad and that it needs to be stopped!. When I was in 2nd grade and lived in Mexico one of my classmates was constantly bothered by other students because he was a bit fat. But I didn’t say anything because I thought that was not a problem that I should care about. But now, I really regret not helping that friend because although it didn’t get too far there was still the chance that it did. And if something worse had happened I would now feel very guilty.
The Effects of Bullying in Kids According to StopBullying.com, “Kids who are bullied can experience depression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep, eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy.” That is why bullying is very dangerous. In some cases, kids fall into depression and because they just can’t control themselves and they feel very useless and stupid then they end up by committing suiciding. To realize when bullying is happening is very difficult because not many people know what are the effects on kids that are suffering from bullying or how to notice if a kid is bullying someone else.
The Meaning Matters Once Abraham Lincoln said, “I would rather be a little nobody than to be an evil somebody”. This quote is important to mention because it makes us understand that sometimes it is best to be a person that doesn't bully and makes things correct than being a disgusting human being that is continually bullying others and making others feel bad just because he or she enjoys their pain.
Becoming Bullies On the other hand, did you know that according to bbc.co.uk, people bully others because of family issues, stress, and trauma? This information is very important because it gives a clue of how can bullying be stopped by saying the main reasons for why kids become bullies. It also shows how parents can realize if their children are being a victim of bullying, or if their child is the one doing the bullying. It is just so crazy how bullying can go too far.
Think About It YouTube is not only a place where you see horrendous things as I saw once, YouTube is also a place where you can learn from as I did. A week later in my humanities class, I saw an anti-bullying video that showed how to prevent bullying. It was about a kid who was bullied and other kid that stood up for him and faced the bully. Next time that you see bullying happening, be like that kid in the video, you need to stand up for others, treat others with respect and get involved in what is happening because sometimes your help can make a very big change.
My Inspiration Every July, I used to go horseback riding, with my brothers. We would go past the river and palm trees. And finally into the forest of pixies, my favorite type of tangerines. Like this we went every year, with my family and some times with my friends.Until one day,I climbed onto my horse, went past the river and the palm trees and saw, nothing? The place where I had had so many memories wasn't there, all the trees were gone! I couldn't believe it. I had to stop it. I had to stop deforestation.
Why should we stop it? So what is is deforestation? Deforestation is to clear a wide area of trees and as the council of climate change says, it is one of the main causes of global warming. This is because when cutting or burning down trees they release carbon, mostly in the form of carbon dioxide, that affect the atmosphere and causes global warming. Deforestation has many more effects on earth, for example the devastating effect that it has on animals. Millions of animals lose their homes
because of people cutting down the trees that are the home to so many animals like monkeys and birds all around the world.
The causes of déforestation All of these problems that deforestation has brought are made by humans because humans are the one that cut down trees. Deforestation of the forests and jungles causes damage to the environment and to themselves. We cut down the trees so that we can get materials like wood for houses or pencil and papers for our schools. But what we don't know is that it is also harming us. Trees help us breathe, they take the carbon dioxide that we breathe out and turn it into oxygen that they then release so that we
can breathe it again and continue the cycle. So if we cut down trees we will slowly run out of oxygen.
The ones most affected Deforestation has many more effects on earth, for example the devastating effect that it has on animals. Millions of animals lose their homes because of people cutting down the trees that are the home to so many animals like monkeys and birds all around the world. Because of losing their homes the animals that survive are forced to emigrate to a new place where they may not be welcomed. This animals that migrate into this new environments have to try to adapt to leave with the animals that are already there. This can be a bit difficult. The new animals can become predators to some of the species that live their. If this species already has a predator then this species numbers will start to decrease which will cause whatever the animal it ate to start to have greater numbers. This would totally ruin the ecosystem, and it was all caused by

()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()()() Getting ready for bed, I grabbed a book. Completely normal. It was a book about fairy tales. About princesses and princes, dragons and castles, magic and treasure. I did what anyone would do, I read it. Afterwards, I noticed something, in most of the stories in the book the woman are helped, saved and/or need rescuing. I thought about it for a while and, guess what, I only knew a few stories that were not like this, and most people did not know those. Most stories, especially fairy tales and classics, are like this, portraying woman and girls as helpless and weak and men as the strong and brave characters. People, if you think about it, you will notice that stores, well the ones from your childhood, are almost always portraying women as helpless weak characters who need to wait around to be saved. If you think about it, stories have become stereotyping, and male inclined in most cases
men are smart and more. This divides the two genders even more.
Classics Most people know Malala, right? For those who don't, Malala is a young woman who fights for women and girls. As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012, but survived and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. If you want a more detailed explanation go to Malala Yousafzai Biography. Malala is the writer of `I am Malala´. Well, her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai, once said, “In most parts of the world, when a girl is born, her wings are clipped. She is not able to fly.” And I completely agree. I believe he means that in most places a girl is believed to be below men, therefore having fewer and less valued opportunities, meaning she is not able to excel. With stories like the fairy tales I mentioned, stereotypes are being subconsciously implanted in the heads of young children, making them think that women are weak, men are strong, women are stupid,
Take a few classic fairy tales for example, Snow White, Rapunzel and Cinderella. There are more, but I won't bore you with them.
The one with the long hair
In Rapunzel, she is kidnapped when she was a baby by Dame Gothel, an evil witch, and then locked away in a tower, where she is raised to believe that Dame Gothel is her mother. All the while Dame Gothel uses Rapunzel’s powers, which she got when her mother ate a magical flower because she was sick and
the flower transferred its powers to her, to make herself young. She wants something more than anything, to see the lights that come out in her birthday, but is not able to get it because she is not allowed to by Dame Gothel. She needs to wait for Flint Rider, to come take her to the lights, or in her words, be her guide.
Skin as White as Snow
Snow White wakes up, they marry and live happily ever after.
Cunning and Conniving There are also plenty of conniving princesses, clever maidens, heroic serving girls, and supernatural queens. For example Brave, The Old Woman in the Wood, The Feathered Bird and The Snow Queen.
The Old Woman In the Woods
In the story of Snow White, she lives a perfect life until her father, the king, dies and she is left with her stepmother, who after asking her enchanted mirror who was the prettiest of them, wants to kill her because the mirror responded that she was the prettiest of them all. The queen sends a hunter after her and asks the hunter to bring her Snow White's heart. The hunter has a moment of kindness and compassion, letting her live. She finds the house of the seven dwarfs and falls asleep. Then, The dwarfs find her asleep, and after explaining her situation, the dwarfs decide to let her stay with them if she cooked, cleaned and took care of the house when they were away. Snow White agrees. A few days later, the queen discovers the hutt, after again asking her enchanted mirror who was the prettiest, then where was Snow White. The Queen disguises herself as a old woman selling apples and goes to the seven dwarfs hut, gives a poisoned apple to Snow White and she collapses. The dwarves find her dead on the floor and hold a funeral, with a crystal coffin, when a prince sees her through the coffin and thinks she is pretty and kiss kiss. Then,
The Snow Queen The Snow Queen story is a bit of a cheat because it’s from Hans Christian Andersen, but hey, who doesn’t love Frozen, right? A little girl called Gerda undertakes an epic quest to find her friend Kay when he is stolen by the Snow Queen. She eventually tracks him to the Queen’s palace and finds that he has been brainwashed. Gerda’s tears, born of love and compassion, melt Kay’s icy heart and free him from the Snow Queen’s spell.
Brave In The story of the old woman in the woods, Known only as “a poor servant girl,” the star of is assaulted by a murdering band of robbers and left for dead in the forest. To thank the white pigeon who saves her, she infiltrates an evil witch’s cottage, battles the old hag to recover the bird’s stolen goods, then chases her down through the forest when she flees. Ring in hand, the girl breaks the witch’s curse and turns the bird back into a prince.
In Brave,the beginning of the story is basically about Merida fighting to save her hand in marriage, and then she messes up, giving her mother the pie.
The Feathered Bird
One of the most brutal and bloody of the Grimms’ Fairy Tales is also one of their best revenge stories. The Feathered Bird starts with a sorcerer who kidnaps two sisters, takes them to his cottage, and chops off their heads. But when he returns to snatch the youngest, she brings her sisters back to life, then trick the sorcerer into returning them to their father. And then, she burns him alive in his own house of horrors.
Unfortunately, most people don't know these amazing stories, only growing up with stories that are full of stereotypes and prejudice, most being male inclined. Look, I know that there are many stories that are not like this, full of stereotypes, but the ones that I am talking about are the ones that accompany you since the beginning of your lives to the last breath you take. Next time you read a book, or hear a story, do what I did and think about it.
ELECTRONIC DEVICES CRISIS By: Sophia Ng
According to Livestrong.com, "The opportunity to access social network sites and games can tempt students away from planned learning studies". This is an example and a fact of why kids and teens, who are mostly students, should use their electronic devices less. Education gives you the knowledge and skills you need in order to live and be successful in life. Students (kids and teens) shouldn't be wasting this opportunity, that a lot of kids don't have, on electronic devices. Since these electronic devices are distracting the students from their studies, the students might be failing or not learning the facts and skills that they need. Also, if those students don't pay attention during class, their parents will get angry, which will result in a type of consequence that could include taking their electronic device away or an even worse punishment.
FRUITLESS KIDS? Enlightening my day, the sun's rays were breaking through the strong wall my bedroom curtains made. Feeling the day's warmth on my skin, I already knew it was a bright and sunny morning, a perfect day to go to the park. At the Benjamin Doig Lossio park, you could see that kids and teenagers of all ages ﬁlled the park with their beaming faces and laughter, ones that would clear up all your gray clouds in less than a second. The kids and teens would clamber the tall and magniﬁcent trees, do weird gymnastics tricks on the grass, and pet the a ectionate dogs that adroitly ran around everyone. But now as the years gone by, I have seen the extravagant changes. Those kids who once ﬁlled the park with smiling faces, have locked themselves in their rooms, where the only bright light is the one emitted out of their electronic devices. Even from the park, you could see kids in their parents' cars just staring down at a screen. At night, you could hear the shouts of angry parents and annoyed kids, arguing about their time on electronics. Are all kids and teens now like this? Why can't we do something more entertaining, energizing, and productive? Kids and teens should use their electronic devices less!
JUMPING TOWARDS DEPRESSION
In addition to technology tempting students away from planned learning studies, according to Business Insider, "Research has found that an eighth grader's risk for depression jumps 27% when he or she uses social media." Even though the risk of depression for an eighth grader when using social media is less than half of 100%, that 27% is a lot. Imagine all the eighth graders in the world having a phone, computer or electronic device where they can access social media. Even though you can express yourself and communicate with people through it, social media can be a bad environment. "In" social media, there are a lot of cyberbullies and negative people, which will inﬂuence their own negativity "into" you. There are millions of eighth graders in the world. Envision all the 8th graders in the world, instead of being ecstatic and merry, being pessimistic and bitter.
oranges. Nightlights and television screens went o . Even the sound of video games, movies and videos diminished. Back at the park, more kids come everyday. You can see more jubilant faces and electriﬁed running bodies. Instead of listening to bitter arguments between parents and their kids, you can hear positive comments and laughs. There is hope. One day, the sun will rise brighter than all the electronic screens. “Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts the ability to have a thought or day dream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the o ce on a cell phone.”
LEARNING TOO MUCH Lastly, as stated in the New York Times, "Media use among children and teenagers ages 8 to 18 has grown so fast that they on average spend twice as much time with screens each year as they spend in school." This is extremely bad! The media could be mentally harmful and inappropriate in some cases since there a lot of mean and bad people on the internet. Since children and teenagers have been on average using media on their electronic devices twice as much time as they spend at school, those kids might be learning things ahead of time. Even though in some instances it is considered good to learn more since you are wiser, those kids might be learning inappropriate or too complicated themes.
UNPLUG & GO Once you start using your electronic devices less, life can start becoming boring in your opinion, since you have nothing to do. One way you can pass time without using electronics is to take a nap. The sound of it might seem very boring but, your dreams could be interesting. Also, after your nap you will feel more refreshed, which is a bonus if you do sports. Another way to pass time is to clean/organize your room. After this activity, not only your parents will stop telling you to clean your room, but you will also have more space for yourself. The last activity/way is to get ahead in school work. Even though it’s not interesting, if you get ahead, with your teacher’s permission, you might have more free time in school to read, draw, write, etc. There are a million things you can do to entertain yourself without using an electronic device. Don’t let electronics be the limit of what you can and cannot do!
OUTDOOR KIDS The light dimmed as the sun went down. The sky turned into a dusky indigo, hinted with pearly pinks and blazing
What can I do to help?:
1. Play non-technological activities games with the “tech person” - UNO, Monopoly, Tag, Coloring, etc 2. Talk with the person you are worried about and tell them the consequences that technology can bring to their lives 3. Spread the message. - Make posters around your school, neighborhood, etc, about kids and teens using less technology.
RISE UP There is hope. Help me solve this issue, help me tell kids and teens to use electronics less! One day, the sun will rise brighter than all the electronic screens.
BY CARLOS Have you ever wanted to know which game is worth it to play well hier is the article you were looking for where we are looking at the to console mobile computer most famous game and here we are going to tell you which one you should play and this gam are FORTNITE and PUBG Before we begin you need to know that both games are battle royale games. e game is that you jump from a plane or a bus with nothing and when you get to the ground you have to get weapons and start killing the other persons. e goal in this games is to get ﬁrst place by killing all the other persons and being the only survivor.
Fortnite Types of Ammo
FORTNITE is better than PUBG because it is a lot simpler to do anything. You do not have to worry about the ammo because there are only 4 types of ammo like heavy
ammo medium ammo and light ammo rocket ammo and some don't even need ammo like the crossbow that it has the inﬁnity of ammo but its long recharge.
e Game is Faster
It’s faster because the map is a lot smaller so each match in top 5 is about 10 to 15 minutes long; a PUBG match is about 20 to 50 minutes long and you would not like to waste 20 to 50 minutes of their life for just a match. ey would just go to something else. Also, You should play FORTNITE because you want to play a random game before going to do something else like having lunch.
Also because FORTNITE has no vehicles and PUBG has so in PUBG you can get run over by a car and in FORTNITE you don’t have to worry about someone running over you.
e type of skins you wear
Also a negative fact about PUBG and a reason why you should prefer FORTNITE is the kind of skins that the player can change during the match. If you are going to pay around 10 dollars for a skin this are how your character looks or gets dressed up as that looks like yours before but a little bit better in PUBG you may not pay for it, but in FORTNITE you can buy a skin that is totally di ferent and non realistic (like, not so long ago they added a guy of a tomato head and before of that long time ago the raven with the new skins and know with the Stillsight skin that look like terminator) you probably are going to buy it.
Also there are pickaxes that you cannot ﬁnd in PUBG, in PUBG if you don’t get a gun you need to use your hand to kill them but it is unusual because your hand does a lot of damage so you could kill him even if you don’t have a guns, and in FORTNITE the pickaxes does 10 damage per shot so if they have full shield you will kill him in 20 shots and if he does not have any shield you could kill him in 10 shots when he can grab a gun and kill you or you kill them. Also talking about the pickaxes you can buy other pickaxes that isn’t the one in the beginning and that make di ferent noises and look a lot cooler. And also their are weapon in PUBG weapon accuracy is horrible because when you start shouting the weapon starts moving every wear and in FORTNITE know but depending on the distance the damage will change. But because of this FORTNITE players can have more health than PUBG characters.
probably have the best graphics of FORTNITE in mobile. Maybe you don’t have PS4 or a good computer to play on would probably play on a cellphone and because FORTNITE is a lot faster they would surely choose this game instead of PUBG because less internet is required for it. Also now that you know both games are on consoles computers and mobile here there's a big di ference: the chance to build walls, stairs, loors, pyramids to hide in. In FORTNITE you can do all of this while in PUBG you can search for places where to hide or to use as bases. FORTNITE is free this is also why you should like it because is free. Why play PUBG if you can get the same exact game but better and free? at is a huge di ference. Adding to this FORTNITE is in one more console than PUBG and that it is in PS4 the most sold console ever it has over 70 million units sold and Xbox has only had 35 million units sold and because all the famous people gonna play FORTNITE. FORTNITE is a wonderful game but something the developers do really well is the update they update it every week and with the meteor that just strikes they are going to build a building so they can investigate the asteroid and each week it will grow until it is completely done.
Developers of FORTNITE pay Attention to
ere was this story about a university teacher that had a lot of his/her students playing FORTNITE mobil in class and he did not want that.He contacted the FORTNITE developers to put a message that said, “Mr Hillman said to stop playing in class.” ey did not respond. A few weeks later the developers noticed the message and for one day the message was in the FORTNITE loading screen. Also there is this one that happened recently with the season 4 update.A kid that contested in the #boogiedown contest and this kid was recognized as the Orange Shirt kid he made the favourite dance for all the people but another person won but a ter season 4 got released by surprise the Orange Shirt kid dance is in the game because the community.
FORTNITE battle royale is the best game ever iven PUBG an also good game could beat him so a ter reading this article you are probably going to want to play FORTNITE.
You've probably heard about FORTNITE mobile and PUBG mobile these are the two biggest mobile games in IOS (this is the Apple system) because in Android they are still not available.Because both of these are in IOS, they have to have some di ferences. Some of these di ferences are expressed in graphics. For example, if you have a good cell phone like iPhone 8 or iPhone X the game will run luently and it would
Smoking Is Deadly! By: Marcelo Panizo Last year, I was in Asia boulevard. It was beautiful. There was VR games, good food, and even a VR rollercoaster! We were walking to the Papa John's. I smelled the delicious pepperoni pizza as we were getting closer. We were walking through a discotec and there were a lot of under aged people waiting outside. They were smoking, drinking and even showing fake ids to the guards. I asked my mom what is the horrible smell and she said that it is smoke. I tried to hold my breath because I knew that smoke is worse for me than for other people. Afterwards, I could not breathe well and my throat was closing. I felt horrible after that experience and from there I asked everyone I know that smokes to at
least not smoke near me. Smoking is deadly! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States every year smoking has 480,000
more deaths on its name. Smoking can be harmful to smokers, non-smokers, and even animals.
lot of dangers it can kill you, it is very addictive, and it can even control you to do horrible things. Also, smoking can make you waste money on cigarettes. It is not cool and it can give you popcorn lungs. Popcorn lungs are when you get a specific type of lung cancer that makes your lungsâ€™ airways fail. Your lungs have black dots and it looks like burned popcorn.
Why Smoking is Bad for Smokers Smoking is harmful to people because it can cause lung disease and cancer. Smoking has a
Another thing is, you lose oxygen over time and die from lack of oxygen. There is a lot
more diseases caused by smoking, so be aware.
Why Smoking is Bad for Non-smokers Smoking is also bad for non-smokers. You, yes you! You are smoking right now. You might be thinking but I have never smoked, what are you talking about?!?! Well, the chemicals are airborne and they are mixed with the air you breathe so, you need to tell other people who smoke to stop because it doesn't just influence the smoker, it influences you. You still have the same risks of diseases with secondhand smoke, but it isn’t as bad as smoking. You should still keep away from it.
How to Stop Smoking Stopping smoking can be really hard. To stop smoking first you need elaborate a quit plan. A quit plan is a plan that gives you ways
to stay focused, confident, and motivated to stopping. You can make your own here or find one that fits you. While quitting, you have to stay busy. Ways of staying busy are drawing, exercising, or even eating gum or hard candy! Also, avoid your smoking triggers and try staying with non smokers. Finally stay positive. But if you need help quitting, ask someone who managed to quit. They will help you
through your journey! Imagine the beautiful Asia Boulevard with no smokers or cigarrete buds on the floor. There would be a clear sky, no coughing
sounds, and no cancer risk! This place would be much more visited without that deadly smoke coming along. I wouldn’t have that horrible day! It would be like a smoke-free heaven.
Not be Racist
By: Matias Restrepo Every day if you watch the news you will hear about many problems in the world like pollution, poverty, global warming, terrorism, diseases, drug addiction, etc. But one of the biggest problems you will see is racism. Not only in US but in the whole world. Hearing news about racism I get really sad because I don’t understand what is the problem with another person having a different skin color. That is why I get sad. People should NOT be racist!
Racism Even to Famous
There are many people that have suffered because of racism in their lives, even famous people. For example the Italian soccer player Mario Balotelli suffered a lot racism in his soccer career. Once when he was playing a soccer match between OGC Nice against Dijon the fans from Dijon started to scream racist insults to him. When he went to tell that to the referee the referee gave him a yellow card because of “complaining.” Mario Balotelli said, “Racism springs from ignorance”.
Surprised by that story that when I was searching I saw many more facts and statistics about racism.I saw that employers are less likely to hire job applicants with black names. This is important because if they receive a CV with the same things and they see one has a black name and the other with a white name they are more likely to hire the one with the white name. Another statistic that surprised me is, “In 2010,
the U.S. Sentencing Commission reported that African Americans receive 10% longer sentences than whites through the federal system for the same crimes.” Unfortunately that is unfair because only judging people by their skin color to say that they did something more wrong than a white person
Government This problem can get really worse. Racism can get to government and that can cause corruption and crisis to the whole society. If that happens companies will not have enough money to pay their workers so many people will lose their jobs and then the whole society will have problems. For example if a president is racist all of the community will have problems there will be conflicts, black people getting
depressed and even commiting suicide.
People in Racism
Racism in Sports In sports racism is also present, in sports like football, basketball, soccer there have been many incidents of racism, According to research from the University of Central Florida's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, racism in sports in the United States went from 31 causes in 2016 to 41 causes in 2017. But that was only in the USA. In the whole world there were many more causes of racism in sports, There should not be racism in sports because people do sports because they like and they want to but they should not be treated differently or discriminated only because of their skin color. So imagine you are a black person who is passionate about soccer and you are good at it and you want to be a soccer player but you can't have the same chances as a white person only because you are black. Then, if you get to be a soccer player, you would be discriminated all the games, social media,before games,etc only because of your skin color. Map of the countries with most racial discrimination in europe.
The people w ho have been or are victims of racism suffer a lot in their life because they have to deal with people thinking that their race(black) is not as important as the than others races (white) and they can even be treated with violence and aggression. People who are racist and do racist things think that they are better because they are white but mostly of the time they do racism because of a reason for example if a kid does racism at school probably is because they want attention or be the “fun kid”. In conclusion In the news I watch many problems in world but racism is one of the biggest, there are many people that are racist in the world but there is always a reason, nobody does racism for nothing and that is why it is stoppable we can stop racism if we want. We are not born being racist; that it is something we develop in our life. So education is one way to stop racism. DO NOT BE RACIST.
ALCOHOL IS DANGEROUS
By Mia Siu
My real life experience It was night, my friends and I were planning to go and ride bicycles. Riding our bicycles we passed to a football field. My friends including me heard some laughs and screaming with a loud music in the background. Then we started to get closer to the sound, and we saw a bunch of underage kids who were drinking and smoking. Turning around we saw a girl who was 15 years old, she was being carried by a security man.
The girl had blood on her face and she seemed really drunk. My friends and I were really scared so we decided to go to our houses where we feel safe.
Not just that
To start with, alcohol is a drug that most teenagers drink at those ages, for example, 13 to 19 years old. It can lead you to violence, accidents, and other health problems that can be really dangerous and a serious problem. This can happen when you don't know how to control the alcohol and you can drink alcohol in excess. Young people like teenagers start to drink at that age, but what they don't really understand or know is that they are too young and can't control the alcohol. They can take it to the next level and take the alcohol in an unsafe way. Underage drinking is a health problem and it’s really dangerous. Parents need to be really attentive because kids do stuff that the parents will never notice for a long time. Teenagers drink without their parents looking. That is even worse because any things that happen is the parent's responsibility and in this case, the parents don't know that their child is doing an illegal thing.
FUN FACT 33% drank some amount of alcohol. 18% binge drank. 8% drove after drinking alcohol. 20% rode with a driver who had been drinking alcohol.
The Alcohol Alert According to the article Underage Drinking published by Alcohol Alert “Scientists currently are examining just how alcohol affects the developing brain, but it’s a difficult task. Subtle changes in the brain may be difficult to detect but still have a significant impact on long-term thinking and memory skills. Add to this the fact that adolescent brains are still maturing, and the study of alcohol’s effects becomes even more complex.” The brains of your child can change, and their memories won't be the same.
Why do teenagers drink? I notice that life is really important and it is your choice to make a good or bad choice about your health or life. Underage drinking can make you fill fit in, with a group of friends. A lot of teens says that if you don't drink you are not one of the cool people, and that's what makes you feel that you cant fit in. When a teenager drinks, they will feel more comfortable because they think that now they are in one of the popular groups and that there are cool and everyone will like him/her.
It get's worse Not only does it affect the health of teenagers, it can lead to violence. According to the article, Youth Violence and Alcohol, written by World Health Organization, “Across the world an average of 565 young people aged 10 to 29 die every day through interpersonal violence, with males at greater risk,” Teen drinking leads to behavior problems and issues. Teens can’t only hurt someone else, they can also hurt themselves. They can have brain issues and that will lead us to hurt or kill themselves. Another important and unsafe thing that alcohol can cause is accidents. When teens drink too much alcohol they are drunk and they don't know what are they doing. Sometimes they are out of control and may not pay attention and accidents may happen. There's a lot of risks that they may fall or do an unsafe thing that causes an accident because they are drunk.
Advice for Parents You as a parent, need to do something. You need to let your child fail and helping them learn that they can pass a lot of difficulties in their life. You need to have a really nice relationship with your children so whatever thing that happens, the will tell you. The worst thing that you can do is spy on them or not trust them, you just need to be aware and understand them. Not only is about your relationship with them, also not let them take all the choices by themselves. Children and teenagers still need a parent or grown up to guide them. If you see that you’re a child is making good choices give them more freedom, but if you see that they are taking a bad choice, take away the freedom and put more limits, because that means they are still not mature.
In my experience, I felt really scared and didn't know how to react. Seeing the girl bleeding and putting her life at risk, really affected me. The girl's mom was freaking out. But another thing that really surprised me in a positive way, was when I saw another girl not accepting alcohol in her body. That girl knew what choices to take. She had alcohol in front of her but she decided not to drink. Not drinking alcohol or smoking, doesn't mean that you can't hang with your friends, be happy or go to parties. It means to make good choices and be responsible for your actions.
Street Dogs Deserve Homes
Last year my friend Dina and I went to Voz Animal. (Thanks mom for driving.) Voz animal is a shelter of dogs that have been on the streets seriously injured, abandoned, or really needed a home. At the time there were about 96 dogs running around the shelter and jumping on you licking your face. I thought to myself, “Wow! These dogs used to live on the streets and have been abandoned from their previous owners, and now they are the most happiest dogs I’ve ever seen. Its like they have forgotten about the streets and their past lives.” After thinking that a dog jumped on me. My friend and I
were laughing. This is the reason I want dogs to be adopted, so they can live happy. They deserve amazing homes and owners. Everytime I go somewhere in the car, there is a dog on the streets and I try to think what it’s life it would have been with an owner. That dog would’ve been so happy, loved and cared for if it had an owner. I think how sad it is that these dogs are walking in the heat, starving to death, And no one has helped the poor dog, just imagine you’re in their shoes, or should I say ...paws.
There are so many dogs on the streets because some dogs that are on the streets aborn on the streets then causing more to be around. No one will adopt them anyways so they are left in the streets to die, Unless people sell them from the streets but that won't do any good anyways because those puppies are extremely sick and die in a few days. It’s even more dangerous for puppies to be on the streets because food for them is more important , but they have to eat from the trash causing them to become very ill. Also there can be lots of dogs on the streets because more and more people are abandoning their dogs.” According to DoSomething.org “Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately
3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.” (That means 3.9 million dogs are abandoned and left in the shelters to die and be depressed.) ” Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes.”, This sound horrible and makes me feel really sad when I think about it. It makes extremely angry because why would someone want to do this in the first place, what comes to their mind when they give up their own dog like that, do they feel sad or do they feel nothing at all? I just don’t get it. I don’t get it one bit.
Street dogs get injured while they are on the street. They can become really unhealthy by eating food from the trash that could have diseases on them , but they do what they can because they never have anything to eat. They can die because of this. Some people don’t even care for these dogs
that they think they could do anything bad with the dogs and get away with it. Some people have hurt these animals really horribly. Some people have run them over because there are so many on the streets( Which has to stop), That they could run them over easily. Some people do care but some don’t care that these dogs are suffering and are depressed. We can help these dogs by first, donating to animal shelters to help them raise money like, Voz animal. Then you might want to adopt these dogs because they are really amazing. You might want to tell your friends about this shelter who love dogs. You can also help the dogs on the streets and give them lots of love and lots of help. Dogs are amazing creatures and want love. That's Why Dogs Deserve Homes.
STOP R acism By: Nicolas One time scrolling down through the videos of YouTube at my house while watching a compilation of the best goals in soccer, on the right corner I saw a video that was called, “Compilation of racism in soccer,” or similar titles. I get angry. No matter what your skin color is, people shouldn't be judged by their skin color and should be treated the same as a white person or the other skin colors. People should STOP racism.
Toscano help.” Morgan Gibbs-White was racially abused during the Under-17 World Cup final last October. He was called “monkey” by a Spanish opponent. After the incident, FIFA started an investigation but dismissed all charges, citing a “lack of sufficient evidence.”
Racism in Soccer Mario Balotelli is a famous soccer player. Playing for the French soccer team OGC Nice, he has suffered a lot of racism. In a game a lot of people shouted many racist insults at him , so much that it made him cry and then he left the game.
Racism in Society
Italy Magazine had a quote of Mario that said, “You can’t delete racism. It’s like a cigarette. You can’t stop smoking if you don’t want to, and you can’t stop racism if people don’t want to. But I’ll do everything I can to
Surprised by the statistics of Dosomething that said, “After being arrested, African Americans are 33% most likely than whites to be detained while facing a felony trial in New York.” This isn’t fair because African Americans shouldn’t have more probabilities of going to a trial just because of their skin color. They are just judging them by their skin color. According to the American Psychiatric Association website, black people are getting depressed and they want to commit suicide.
In Wisconsin, a statewide survey reported alarming rates of high school black people have ideas about wanting to committing suicide; while 4% of white students reported they attempted suicide at least once, within the past year, 16% of black students reported suicide attempts.
Health Problems Because of Racism
A new survey conducted by the NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found out that racism can also cause you health problems, literally health problems! It found out that being treated with less courtesy than other people, or bad service in restaurants or stores, people who are the most affected in that kind of experiences, passing the time, this people are in a rapid coronary heart disease. The research also found out that pregnant women who report lots of discrimination give birth to babies who are lower in baby weight.
Youtube videos shouldn't have this kind of racism content, Youtube should have some strict rules about this type of content and delete any videos that have this kind of
content. We need to stop racism or at least reduce it. Racism is all over our world. We are the only ones who can stop it. It is causing health problems to people, and this is really bad because a baby may be born with weight problems because her mother was always a victim of discrimination. You can reduce racism by not judging someone by his color and just treating him as you would treat another person. Don’t expand it, reduce it, and as I said in the start, STOP it.

SHARING RESOURCES BY: Jorge Valle
[Escriba el subtĂtulo del documento]Personal Story One day I was at school in lunch. I was really hungry! I almost cried because of how hungry I was. One of my friends, my best friend, took out of his bright blue lunch box a package of vanilla Oreos put his hand out and gave me the package of
Oreos and that alleviated my hunger. I felt super good and super happy.
SHARING RESOURCES So sharing resources is the thing that I am going to talk to you about.
Eli Khamarov, a famous writer from England said "Poverty is like punishment for a crime you didn't commit." And this is really bad because the children have not done anything bad to anybody in the world and they are just dying because they can't afford food. According to unicef “22,000 children die of poverty around the world”. So now poverty in our world people asking for money in the streets also innocent kids dying because they do not have enough money to afford any sort of drink to be hydrated and they need to drink from rivers and the water in the rivers might look really clean but actually it is really dirty. Now quietly imagine a world without poverty and think how would it be if there were no kids starving to death, dehydrating and not having anywhere to sleep or live in, that would be a good world. Right? And if you don't think this is good well something is wrong unless you like that children starve to death. But wouldn't you be happy if there was no poverty, no children dying and no crime this is why it would be a good world without this big problem. Well if we shared resources with poor people we might not erase it from the world but we will reduce world poverty massively and everybody will be happy. You and the ones who get the resources will be happy and not just them that get the resources you donate but you too because you are doing a good thing and even saving life. Some ways you can share your resources are by donating to some orphanages or when your school is donating food to poor people you can give them some food so they can give it to the people that need it the most. Some of the
places that you can donate to are: Hogar de Gina, you could give them food and hygiene products and Pamplona Alta they also need a lot of food and some cover in the night because it's really cold in there especially during the nights. Also another way to help is if you are in my school you could join bag to mat or if you don't get in you can donate them some bags so they can make the mat for the poor people that suffer of cold during the night. "Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity," this was said by Coco Chanel a french fashion designer. As you can see nobody thinks poverty is something someone deserves or something good and by our side (the people that have money) poverty does not seem that harmful because I don't think anybody of us have ever starved until the point it really hurts (and believe me it is not a good feeling). Some of the symptoms that you get when starving are that you start vomiting, you get really bad headaches and you can even die of it. So now you know a little bit about the symptoms and I think you king of felt bad for the people that suffer of this. And what if you wanted to do something bigger like going there and helping paint something, well you can actually visit Hogar de Gina and you can help them paint their house or maybe cook them food. So now you see how the world is with poverty and the consequences of this problem.
