Underage Drinking B y: Marta Almendres they can get unconscious. The liver, which removes poisons from the blood, is especially at risk.” This is horrible! We should stop underage drinking for our health and for our own goods. Some parents think that their kids don’t drink, but they don’t really know if it is true because sometimes their kids don’t tell the truth. Also they should know that most kids of 15 they have already had 1 drink.This statistics proves that parents should be more aware of their kids when they go to parties because that’s when normally kids take advantage of the situation to drink what they can.
Why do kids drink
My Story When I think about underage drinking I often think about when I was at the beach. My two cousins and my two friends and I were talking on a bench because we were tired of being with our bicycles. Suddenly, we found out that my brother’s friends were drunk and they were yelling, dancing etc. Also, I saw that my cousin was waving her hand at my brother and one of his friends gave her the middle finger and she wondered why are they were drunk. I thought that this was super bad for them because they were 2 years younger than me. So, I told my cousins to go because I didn’t want them to ask more questions about this because they could of think that my brother drank but he was the only one who didn’t. I didn’t want them to come and convince my cousins to try. hat happens when you drink too much W Underage drinking is not beneficial for your health and mental skills. Many kids start drinking younger than age 15. According to National Institute on Alcohol Abuse, “by age 15, 33% of teens had had already at least 1 drink. Also, people consume more than 90% of their alcohol by binge drinking. If they keep drinking too much alcohol it can lead to alcohol poisoning, which can kill a person. Over time, people who abuse alcohol can do serious damage to their bodies such as their heart,brain,skin can affect your face,muscles, and your stomach.. Also, it can cause damage to their brains and
Some parents drink alcohol in front of their kids and they are causing their kids to think that drinking is good. According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, they say that, “there is a risk that alcohol is the drug of choice among adolescents used by more young people than tobacco or illicit drugs. Children of alcoholics parents are between 4 to 10 times more likely to become alcoholics than children from families with no alcoholics parents.” This would be horrible because parents are already older than kids and they should teach kids what is good for their health and what is incorrect for their health. This matters because depending on the parents then you can have more risks of drinking and if you don’t have parents who drink alcohol then you would have fewer risks. Parents should try to stop drinking to give a good example to their kids; the chances of a kid tempted to drink could be very low in the future.
What happens if you drink too much
Things you could do to prevent drinking
As a consequence of drinking, teenagers take advantage of drinking excessively on weekends because they normally can’t drink on weekdays. According to the University of Rochester, “too many young people are participating in a dangerous practice called binge drinking. It means drinking alcohol to the point of getting drunk. It's defined as having 5 or more drinks in a row for men. For women, it's 4 or more drinks in a row. This amount of drinking will produce blood alcohol levels far above the legal driving limit of 0.08% for the United States, whereas in Peru it is 0 tolerance. For these students, getting drunk is usually the main goal of drinking. And getting drunk can involve many other dangers, including dizziness, loss of coordination, diarrhea, vomiting, lack of judgment, or even passing out. If a person vomits when passed out, the airway can become blocked, and the result can be death.” I don’t want to stereotype but, they say that man’s body can hold more alcohol than women’s body. This means that both boys and girls get in danger when they drink too much.This situation about underage drinking is really bad I think that all kids want to do it because they want to feel like they are the bests but, really they are destroying the life that you still have.
Then, you could think about a lot of things so you can prevent from doing it. Try to not get convinced about it because it can benefit you. Imagine if they ask you if you want a shot you could say no. It could be difficult because they are your friends but you would have to choose your friends or your health. Another thing you could do is get the drink and threw it away and fill it out with water instead of alcohol. Some teenagers think that this is fun, good to do but it is really damaging your health and your body like your brain, muscles, heart etc.This should stop because it is causing a lot of sickness, deaths, comas, cerebral damage etc on children under 18 years old and that is hurting a lot of boys and girls.
What can happen if you drink at a young age We should prevent underage drinking. It is dangerous for your body and for your brain. Also, it can affect your learning and your grades in school. Many kids and teenagers are getting sick or on the border of death because they can’t control their drinking. Also, it can cause you to go into a coma and the line between coma and death is really thin and it can lead you to an unconscious, cerebral damage...A lot of teenagers and kids may think that this is good, fun, it’s okay to do it and that nothing would happen. But you really don’t know how long your body can hold until you can get sick or on the border of death. Also, you can get convinced about drinking alcohol but you should always say no because of your health and your body. You are old enough to know what to say if they ask you. You should know what would be the consequences if you do this. Also, you should think about what are you choosing and you can say to yourself if it is right or is wrong to drink at a young age.
Eating Unhealthy is Bad For You
In this world there have been lots of deaths because of this and if we don’t stop it their will be more. In a year the average number of deaths in only USA is about 365,000 and this is only because of obesity and imagine how many can their be in the whole world. And this is because obesity and other diseases. According NBC News there is high mortality level in us because of obesity this means that lots of people die because of this. Also 5 percent of adults in USA die because of this. Another thing that can happen to you because of not eating healthy is diabetes this is when you have a high level of sugar.

Finally I hope it teaches you about what could happen if you eat unhealthy and how are some ways to prevent it.
Gender Stereotyping By: Carlota Brugada Gender stereotyping at a young age
hen I was with my three-year-old cousin I
asked her if she wanted a blue popsicle or a pink popsicle and she said pink. I asked her why and she said, “Because my friends told me that blue is for boys and pink is for a girl.” I told her that she could get whatever she wanted but she didn't listen. Stop gender stereotypes because it can make your life better. It is messing your kids.
Gender stereotyping affecting companies and what they sell When I think about gender stereotypes I often remind myself about an advertisement that I saw in the news that was about a company that sold the same game but meant for different genders. It was a construction game for boys and a mermaid under the sea for girls. I was shocked with this new- news about know changing companies and gender differences. Another thing that I noticed is that boys and girls don't really think about gender stereotyping; it is normally something that parents generate in their children. I mostly think that gender stereotypes are a waste of time because its just people's opinions about gender differences and I don't really care about that, and you shouldn't either. Whenever you see some kind of gender difference just help stop it.
Gender differences affecting sports One day I was at a soccer game, and some boys came to watch and started talking. I heard that they were talking and laughing at the girls and how we played soccer. It was a meaningful and sad opinion for us girls that heard what they said. I think boys and girls should just stop being how other people want them to be because of the gender differences and just be themselves.
How different genders should act like or be like According to the website The Negative Effects of Gender Roles, “Since a young age, people are told what they should like, act like, and become based on the gender of their body.” This means society has been showing or telling how boys should act and the same thing for the girls. “These present ideas start off by expecting young females to like pink or pastel colors and young males to like blue or darker colors. Society has come to call these ideals gender roles since they are basic roles and ideas that a certain gender should conform to and accept.” People should not accept that this is ok because if we start thinking this mentality we will adapt to this certain idea that people don't really think about.
It's messing with your kid According to to the website Common Sense Media,“While these stereotypes and ideal roles may seem innocent and harmless, they have a dramatic effect on the everyday lives of people.” Stop gender stereotyping. According to Common Sense Media, “Gender stereotypes are messing with your kid. It's not just one movie. It's not just one TV show. Its
constant exposure to the same dated concepts in the media over and over, starting before preschool and lasting lifetime concepts like Boys are smarter than Girls; certain jobs are best for men and others for women”. This means that people are developing and identifying each other by boys do this certain stuff and girls other stuff. The problem is that they are certainly developing and identifying their gender as this is what this gender does and that is what they gender does it is discriminating us because of our genders.
Missing out We are missing out on opportunities that people could have once in a lifetime just because of the gender stereotyping.We need to stop gender stereotypes for our own good. Stereotypes can be positive and negative but mostly negative, gender stereotyping are gender differences and a regressive characteristic. This means that gender differences have been evolving over the years and it has been regressive, the meaning of regressive is like something that comes up over and over again.
Influencing genders According to CNN 10, You've probably heard it before: “More than biology, family, friends and society influence impressions of what it means to be a boy or a girl, placing rigid gender expectations on children from a young age. In recent years, a growing body of research has focused on health inequities that result from enforced gender norms in children.”Meaning, that family, friends, and society is influencing you and others around you what boy and girl mean, for example; Girls are pink, dolls, shopping, how they look and not on their education and boys are, blue, cars, superheroes, being big and strong etc.. I think gender stereotyping should stop.
Job difference Margaret Thatcher said., “ In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a women.” I think this is a very good quote because it's not just saying boys are good at politics its saying girls are better than them in jobs that should supposedly be good for boys and not for girls, In fact it's just a rumor and not a fact what society is telling you,-you can see that the quote is trying to say that girls could be as good as man or even better at the “mans job.” That's why we should stop gender stereotyping. We should stop gender stereotyping for our goods and for our daily life.
Stop Gender Stereotyping Gender stereotyping is a really bad problem that is happening all throughout the world.This stereotype is very common and the results of this stereotype are powerful meanings to others and really unfair to the ones that are having this kind of problem in their lives. Gender differences are unfair for girls, boys and adult (our society) these gender differences are not helping anyone and it will not help until we stop it ones for all! And one way we can stop gender differences is by speaking up when you hear a gender difference, like for example if the gender difference wouldn't have touched my cousin she would have picked the blue popsicle. Stop gender stereotyping. Its for your own good.
Start breaking gender stereotyping

U nder the O cean By Fr ancecsa
One day in Singapore, we went to the aquar ium. I remembered that there were ver y different types of animals and species of fish. For example there were dolphins,sharks,clownfish and jellyfish. What I thought the most was that the big fish would stay in small cages. Especially the dolphins, they would swim back in for th in there tanks with barely any room. They would sometimes get some food and that would be their meal for the whole day, sometimes they would barely have any company by other types of dolphins. Sea life have feelings too. Many sea animal are being har med ever yday, like orcas. Animals are getting hur t and killed,we need to stop hur ting sea animals.
According to the website Animal Equality ?over 56 billion sea animals are killed ever yday.? this is ver y impor tant because about that many sea animals die each day that about 16 tr illion each year. For example the website New Diseases, Toxins Har ming wildlife many sea animals are being poisoned by the ?nasty toxins? called microcystin, which is produced, by blue- green algae. The website petkids.com says that, ?Orcas spend 95% of the time deep down in the ocean to protect themselves from the sunlight. Since the orcas at Seaworld live in shallow pools with chemical- filled water and can?t hide from the sunlight the orcas get sunbur ns.?
More than 100 cases of orca aggression comes from Seaworld, before the 5 orca?s that came to seaworld there were stolen from there families in the wild. In 1965 an orca was stolen by a hunter named Ted Gr iffin, even though he captured Shamu (the orca at seaworld) he also killed Shamu?s mother r ight in front of her. Orcas in the wild live from 60 - 70 year s for males and 80- 100 for female, but in seaworld the orcas that died from captivity live only 13 year s. We should care because if orcas would be free in the wild and not in in the captivity they would live much longer then they do, and should be free to hunt and live on their own. ?The animal of this world exist for their own reason. They were not made for humans anymore than black people for white, neither woman for men. - Alice Walker.
According to Aquar iums are a good thing aquar ium can also help sea animals. Like rehabilitation in november 2015, a tropical masked booby bird was found in newpor t, Oregon. The fir st booby bird had been in quar antined because of the avian flu possibilities. The bird was nur sed back to health and sent by via air mail back to Califor nia.Maybe ways people can help out is by using less plastic because when you consume plastic nad throw it away it goes to open dumps and to lakes,then r iver,then the oceans and the sea animals that live and hunt for there own food, cna mistake out dir ty plastic for other types of fish, and eat it. So that a way you cna help out by using less last.
FUN FACTS - Whale is the biggest animal that has existed in the world - The whale has the largest brain. it wights about 20 pounds - Whale do have any vocal chords.

F emi ni sm A misunder stood theor y Who am I ? Who ar e y ou?
By :MalaĂŻka Des Mar ais Many think feminism is about women taking over the wor ld and r uling it like men have for centur ies. That's why they ar e scar ed. Wouldn't it be ter r ible to be paid less, whistled at on the str eet, have your pr ivacy thr own out the window, get mur der ed for not accepting a man to love you? I could go on, but sadly this ar ticle has a one page limit and wr iting how unfair life is isn't changing things. This for m of activist is called a misandr ist. A per son who believes men ar e less than women and should be tr eated as so. Thankfully, I'm not tr ying to convince you of this. Why? Wouldn't I want to be on my own side? Yes. But I also call myself a human r ight activist and I tr uly believe no one deser ves to be tr eated as a bur den, or an object you ar e entitled to. Relax. What about the other way ar ound? A misogynist is a per son who believes men ar e better than women. We ar e their possessions, their monuments, things they must posses or things they can thr ow out. As Cher is Kr amar ae said, "feminism is the r adical notion that women ar e human beings. " Then, what is feminism?
I am sur e that almost all of us have something we ar e passionate about. Whether it's an issue, a per son, a movie, a book or so much mor e, our hear ts fir e up when we talk about it. We could r ant about it for days. It's what lights the fir e in us. That's what feminism means to me. I don't r ecall the exact moment that I became this way, but it was at least in thir d gr ade, since then, I have alway shown my utmost passion towar ds this topic. I call myself a feminist, without a doubt in my voice. But when other s have that doubt, when other s don't know why I fight so har d for this issue, why my eyes light up when it's discussed, I wonder, what's so har d to under stand? Why is it even an issue that people just don't get it?
I don 't get i t .
Accor ding to Kathy Capr ino, feminism is about equality. People often confuse equality with sameness even if that misses the point completely. Women and men ar e not the same. "It?s cr itical to under stand that ?same? does not mean ?equal. ? The issue her e is about equal r ights and equal access to oppor tunities. Men and women don?t have to be the ?same? in physicality to have the r ight to equality. I?d love to see that ar gument (that women and men ar en?t the ?same? so they can?t be equal) disappear for ever. Fr om my view, it?s a misguided one. " Mentally and physically it is impossible to r each a level of sameness. Feminism is about equality, having the oppor tunity and r esour ces to tr y. People make mistakes about what feminism means, and that's why they ar e so afr aid.
The equal i t i st
Feminists believe in equality of both sexes. If feminism is for equality, why is it not equalist? I wr ote a book about this in 5th gr ade and still think about it sometimes. But her e is the answer to this question. Accor ding to Tumblr user castiel- knight of hell "The wor d feminism was cr eated by Char les Four ier in 1837 who believed women wer e being tr eated as slaves.
We wer en't allowed to vote, own anything or wor k a r eal job. Women wer e r uled by their father 's household and then they got mar r ied and wer e r uled by their husbands. If a woman r efused to follow the r ules of the patr iar chy she would be shunned by society and tr eated as a disgr ace. The r ule of thumb or iginated fr om the r ule than a man could beat his wife with a stick only if it wasn't thicker as his thumb. " Ignor ing that it is a female issue would be denial or ignor ance. That's why feminism is about br inging things r elated to femininity up. An equalist would ask to br ing men down and find an equality ther e. But we ar en't asking men to tear themselves down. We ar e asking them to make r oom for us.
The r eason this list matter s to you too is because not only as boy but as a human you have the r ight to do these things, that's why this issue is for us. As a human you have the r ight to expr ess your self. It's liter ally an official human r ight because it's that impor tant. I guess what I'm tr ying to say is that we ar e all par t of this somehow. In the end, this system is a system we should not be r uled under. I'm pr oposing a r evolution for the both of us.

It’s no fair for all the wonderful creatures living in the ocean to live with all this trash that we humans produce and then just dump it all in the ocean. We should reduce our trash and avoid it to go into the ocean. If you see trash in the ocean go and pick it up. You can also recycle and reuse but what you can do best is reduce like buying less materials like things that you don’t need.
fish and swim because all of the trash that was there. We didn’t want to even look in there!
Sea turtles and other animals On April 12, still not wanting to look in the ocean, I read in National Geographic Kids that 52% of sea turtles worldwide have accidentally eaten plastic trash in the ocean. This plastic that they eat gets into them and they die. All the chemicals get into their bodies and this is really bad for them and their nutrition. They think that plastic bags are jellyfish then they eat it,

life, we are killing ourselves by killing the ocean. If we kill the ocean we are killing planet earth our home. So
Fun fact There is a place in the Pacific ocean called Pacific ocean patch. That place is full of trash. It was created because all the currents bring the trash there and all the trash came together and formed a gigantic place of trash. It is really hard to clean it because it’s way to much trash.
Ocean Zones On the same day, thinking that humans can die because we eat polluted fish, I read a fact in an an organization called Soft Schools that was, there are zones in the ocean that have been created by pollution making life in those zones impossible for marine or plant life. This zones are full of awful trash. Our trash is toxic and kills all the life. We pollute animals by destroying their natural habitats and taking
we are killing ourselves.
How can you help When you go to the beach, and you see trash in the ocean pick it up. All of this ocean pollution is making earth sick. If we keep polluting the ocean earth is going to get even sicker and maybe even dye. To not kill the earth, we can reuse, reduce, and recycle our trash. Here are some ways you can help. When you have food waste, compost the food that you don’t need. After using plastic you can recycle the plastic. You can donate your things to not waste them like when you have a toy that you don’t like anymore because you grew up don't throw it in the trash donate to other people that need and want the toy because it won’t be wasted. Reduce your trash by using reusable bags instead of plastic bags. You can also donate other things. The biggest part you can help with is when you see trash in the ocean pick it up and don’t throw your trash in the ocean… recycle it! Let’s stop polluting the ocean and start cleaning it up! 2
Use Less Paper By : Alvaro FernandezPalomero
The use of paper in the world is affecting the Earth. Every day millions of human beings produce lots of paper. In order to produce paper humans have to cut millions of trees damaging our environment. To help our planet we can start by planting more trees, by recycling the paper we use instead of throwing it to the trash and printing less paper. A close example of how badly humans use paper is that they don’t reuse it; they throw it behind trash cans.
then I believe that people don’t like Earth because they treat it badly. As long as there is paper people are going to destroy the Earth. Another reason why I don’t like paper is because it contaminates. My ﬁrst solution for this problem is to plant more trees. I can do this by starting
club that promotes planting trees in areas where there are none or in places that have been deforested. I could also sign up in a NGO like ARBIO which plants trees in the Amazon jungle and help them out by telling my friends and other students to support it. Also this bad for animals cause when animals are moving people,kill them cause they don’t want them in there house.
Recycling According to the website “The World Counts” we produce 165.068.999 tons of paper in a whole year. When I was 10 years old I found a lot of trash and since
Additionally I will start recycling every paper I use and tell people to recycle.
HOW? I will recycle paper by seeing videos about using papers and then use it and stop using notebook or use less notebooks. Finally I will print less paper and make people realize there is no need to print every document they receive. HOW? By writing in a paper and reuse it and also you will ask yourself “But poor people need paper and they have to print it to be creative?”My answer is that they don’t have computers, also there is a lot of poor people but they need it more than us so, what I am talking about is that the world needs to use less paper cause in the world, we are cutting a lot of trees and we are type of killing animals. Example: Bees and monkeys. So I would stop by reusing paper in big amounts and also paper is bad for earth cause it takes out nutrients and it’s very popular and important but we have to use it in small amounts I know it is not easy to do not use it cause poor people use it and they need creativity but the thing is that more paper for poor people and less paper for rich people.Animals are important for human cause if they don’t have habitat they can die because there is no food.
When I say that people thought trash
behind the trash can is that they maybe
think about someone is going to take it and the other reason why they leave it behind the trash is why they are lazy.
The Power of Plastic By Rafael Golergant
A Plastic Story
A few months ago, I
was walking down the street by my house. It has no garbage. At that time, it was a very wonderful street. It had big houses with different colors red, blue,white and gray. Now, when you look down, you see all the plastic wrappers down in the gardens and roads. You see all the plastic bags all over the floor. You see the recycling bin, and unfortunately there is nothing in there. My neighborhood has not done anything to avoid the accumulation of plastic and, as a result, my street is now suffering the consequences of that inaction. So if you see any object made of plastic on the floor, make sure to pick it up and recycle it.
How Is Plastic Polluting The Ocean? According to National Geographic, “91 percent of plastic is not recycled. Also, about 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the ocean.” This is a really bad thing because all the plastic bags and wrappers end up in the ocean. In addition, the Animals Friends Croatia website says that, “The real impact of plastic bag litter is felt on wildlife both in the marine environment
and in rural areas. As a matter of fact tens of thousands of whales, birds, seals and turtles are killed every year from plastic bag litter in the marine environment as they often mistake plastic bags for food such as jellyfish. As plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to break down, once an animal dies and decays after ingesting plastic, the plastic is then freed back into the marine environment to carry on killing other wildlife. This quote talks about how plastic harms animals and that one plastic bag can harm many animals in the ocean. “This is bad for society because animals think that the plastic is food and then eat the plastic. This harms them in the stomach and kills them little by little. People eat animals and they get the plastic the animals ate. People can get really sick because of this so if you want to save your life and the animals lives then use your plastic wisely”.
Why Is Plastic Polluting Oceans Bad? Plastic harms the environment. All the trash ends up and pollutes the trees and the rivers. Now, places that once were beautiful are full of trash in every corner and all of this is because of human beings; it is because we
don’t recycle. The utah recycling website plastic also says “it takes 1,000 years disintegrate.” That means all of the plastic bits are in the environment for a long time. 1,000 years ago from now, humans created the first paper. Because of this,make sure that your plastic ends up in the right place. The Eco Watch website has some important facts about how plastic harms the environment. First af all, over the last 10 years we humans are using more plastic each year so we are not improving we are making the world a more polluted place. Plastic is about 12 percent of the waste we produce every day. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a vortex on the ocean full of trash. It is the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world. This a problem because not only does plastic pollution in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch pose risks for the safety and health of marine animals.
Oil in Plastic In addition, plastic is made of oil and when you transport the oils some might fall and pollute the ocean. This is call an oil spill; oil spills are very hard to clean up. This can harm society beuse when oil spills stay on oceans they can be toxic and this toxic gas can harm humans and animals.Many governments are supporting the use of plastic because plastic is made of oil and oil is a very good for getting a better economic profit so, it will be very hard to eliminate the use of plastic. To do this, all humans will need to know about this and make a boycott (people don’t use plastic). Another example is that you can get your neighbors to collect the plastic and recycle. If everyone starts to do that in their street, we will soon have a cleaner city of plastic and a less polluted world.

Deforestation, A Terrible Thing By: Costy Maawad
Personal Story Everyday when I research on the internet I see that a lot of trees are being cut down per year. Paper is made from trees. Every day at school I use a maximum of 10 pages of paper per day. We need to use paper wisely. Paper is made out of trees and they cut down trees to make paper. It destroys the animal habitats and our beautiful nature. Trees gives us fresh air. We breathe from it.
The situation of Deforestation The situation of deforestation is getting worse and worse. Animals are losing their habitats and people are getting less healthier. Our nature is getting destroyed only for money. The world should be a better place but now… it's called a worse place.
Facts According to Ran.org, each year an estimated of 3.5 billion to 7 billion trees are being cut down each year. They cut trees only for money. Using less paper saves the world rainforests. It saves our rain forests because now people will not cut down more trees because they already have paper. Adding to Ran.org, According to Conserve Energy Future, in an estimated 100 years there will no longer be rainforests. There will no be rainforest because of deforestation because they are cutting down trees every second! We need to save rainforest so we
can have a green world and it helps people breath more fresh air. Imagine that we used less paper. Fewer trees would be cut down and we are going to have fresh air that we could breath. We also could see our beautiful nature and the earth would be a better place with more green.
Why is it bad for us Deforestation is destroying our nature. It's destroying animals habitats and also their food because some animals get food from trees and get their energy from that. Also I think that some animals are becoming extinct because they are not going to get their food and they are going to starve to death. It is destroying our earth nature. People are getting more infected with pollution because they are destroying our trees and trees air. Also when babies are getting born they can get sick because of pollution or by any virus. Also some animals are getting extinct because they don't have more food and they starve to death. The effects of Deforestation to our society. First of all we need oxygen so when cutting down trees it decreases the amount of oxygen. It also will affect our food system. It can make the food that grows on trees become more dirty and you can get viruses from them. If there was no deforestation, trees would clean the atmosphere . It would take out the carbon dioxide and reduce the greenhouse gas effect. Also the food from the trees would be cleaner and healthier. To help so there's not so much deforestation, recycle paper and use wisely your paper you are using. Deforestation is bad to the earth because when there wasn't deforestation our trees cleaned the atmosphere. It takes the carbon dioxide and gives them
fresh natural air. It is also bad for the earth because trees gives you fresh air and now in days there is a lot of pollution and people are breathing the oxygen that is contaminated with pollution. It is also bad for humans because it doesn't give them fresh air and also bad for animals that live in the wild because the animals that live in rainforest and lives at the trees there trees get chopped down. A fact that I saw on the internet that why does people do these things it is because of the money. They pay the workers a good amount of money to do these job. They don't realize that they are being harmful to our earth and animals. They also don't realize that they are hurting themselves because the trees gives us fresh air to breath. Trees give us oxygen. Without trees we couldn't breath. According to WWF states the scientists estimate that a third of the world's arable land has been lost to deforestation since 1960. People who are cutting down trees don't realize what are they doing because of the money they earn.. Finally, that is why you need to use wisely paper. Recycle paper don't throw it to the garbage. Do not make an incorrect step. Make the earth to be a better place. Make your kids enjoy nature. That's the beauty of earth. We need to stop deforestation because it is destroying our nature and animal habitats. You can help to stop deforestation by using paper wisely.

The Consequences of Smoking By Julián
My dad smokes. He started smoking 32 years ago. He smoked 7 cigarettes a day. He was 14 when he started. He now has stopped smoking. I am afraid that he could get sick and have cancer. According to Factslides smoking causes 1 in every 5 deaths in the U.S. That is about 525,283 deaths each year caused by smoking. This is bad because there are fewer people to take care of the earth and other people. Smoking is bad for the people who smoke. It is bad because the cigarette contains over 4,800 chemicals. Those chemicals enter your lungs and you can get cancer.
It is also bad for the people who are around the smokers. When non-smokers are around smokers the smoke can enter their lungs and they can get cancer. When the smoker uses a filter they feel the flavor but when the smoke gets to the lungs of the people around them.
They don’t feel the flavor. People are not supposed to have smoke in their lungs. Smoking is very expensive, it may cost you around $1500 each year! Not only of money, but to your health. Your lungs suffer and you get popcorn lungs. The smoke gets to the lungs and contaminates the blood. The blood circulates the system and infects the organs it goes through. You can get cancer in the mouth, nose, throat, the lungs, the stomach,
pancreas, in the kidney and in the blood. I want people to stop smoking because it is harming their body, the atmosphere and other people. I want people to be healthier and to live healthy lives. Instead of smoking you can do exercises or play sports. If you know someone who smokes, please tell them about this information. Smoking can harm you and others around. My dad has stopped smoking now. I convinced to stop by telling him what would happen if he kept smoking.

DESERVE AT LEAST
and filthy slaughterhouse.These water and food that the animal eats contain millions or billions of bacteria,who are rich in diseases and infections that could infect you if eaten or entered the body.These infections are mostly lethal which means that it can kill the animal.We should take care of them because they’re LIVING THINGS. Also,these mistreatment against animals make them more ferocious because when they were abused,they remember about of their owners hits and defending themselves from their owner.That is a extremely negative effect because of what happened to them because
when a person tries to help them and rescue them,they’re gonna think that they’re gonna hit them.The simplest things to do to take good care of the animal is:if you’re going to have a pet, realize that it’s like a living thing.And second of all, take care of him as you take care of yourself.
Unfortunately, These animals are big danger.This is caused because the animals are very mistreated.Their owners hit them,make them starve,dehydrate them extremely,use them in puppy mills,and sometimes euthanize them which is illegal(euthanizing is killing them because they should be living).

Let's Disconnect [InĂŠs Pestarino]

Well..., di f f er en ducat i on t o a t t al k w i most of the time. Some days we enjoy ourselves and play t h peo l evel , w e can p l e w ho i n t he sam outside, but others we stay with our phones looking at a a e r o o w e can m as u r en't screen and barely talk. I miss the times when we were little s , and new t hi ex pl or e and ngs w i t kids, and we didn't even know what technology was. We just l e a rn h j ust a W i t hou ? t c wanted to go out to our backyard and run around all day. l i c k .? t echnol w ogy, Although technology has affected humanity in a significantly p oul dn't have w e de e positive way, I know that it is taking over our lives in a c opl e, but , w vel oped as h onsequ ences o at ar e t he harmful way, as well. So let?s disconnect! f el ect r oni cs?
Tech n ology addict ion First of all, according to the Daily M ail ?The average adult is awake for 15 hours and 45 minutes every day and 45 percent of that time is spent using a proliferation of technology.? This means that approximately seven hours of our daily lives are spent with a device in our hands. It is shocking that half of our waking life is spent watching a screen, and most of the time our brains are actively paying attention to games, posts, videos, etc. in an unhealthy way, and we don't even realize it. We do this so often that has become an addiction. ?If you are suffering from Internet Addiction Disorder, your brain makeup is similar to those that suffer from chemical dependencies, such as
drugs or alcohol?, suggests PSYCOM . They continued by saying that suffering from a chemical dependency means ?Being incapable of limiting drug or alcohol use, spending much time using or obtaining the substance and falling behind in work, school, or family responsibilities due to use. Also, continuing to use drugs and alcohol even when aware of the problems it causes and abandoning former interests or hobbies to engage in use.? This is the information we have about what happens when drugs or alcohol are consumed, 1
but why don?t we know that similar effects occur if we use technology in an addictive way? We lack consciousness of the downsides of technology and internet addiction. N ow that we know about this issue, we need to spread awareness to other people. If we don?t, we will continue dangerously using electronics and we wouldn't realize that it is as harmful.
sations with people we didn't even know were there? Would we realize how much electronics are taking out of our lives? And how we are missing opportunities to share experiences with the people we know and love? The obvious answer to these questions is a big yes! Certainly, we will have more time to interact with each other, time to hug, kiss and fill the satisfaction of human contact and conversation, just like we did, centuries ago, when humans first started existing.
Im pact on Social Lif e N ot only does technology damage your brain it also disconnects us from socializing and interacting with people in real life. I can't remember the last time my brother ate breakfast without looking at Youtube. Each day we have fewer conversations with the people beside us. Sadly, we text more than we talk. At dinner, we eat and practically forget that people are in front of us, we are just thinking about when we can go back to our rooms and watch our series or play another Fornite match. We don't even pretend to care if our siblings or parents had a good day.

Imagine if we just disconnected from technology for a day. Will we have more conver-
outside, and this is hurtful to our health. A M edium Corporations says, ?Spending time outdoors has a huge number of positive effects on the body?? ?it provides you with exposure to sunlight, which supplies your body with Vitamin D. This helps to fight infections and keep your skin healthy.? N ot only that, but they also added, ?Child obesity rates have risen drastically over the past several decades. In 2012, the child obesity rate was measured to be 18 percent, which is an 11 point difference from the obesity rate in 1980.? Technology is not helping our bodies health, and it will continue this way and till we stop it ourselves.
Ef f ect on Ou t door Lif e In addition to reducing the time we socialize in real life, electronics are decreasing our time outside the house. Recently, my father showed me a remarkable quote by Isaac N ewton who said, ?I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.? We seem to be losing this beautiful kind of feeling, probably forever. Thinking about it, if my mom didn't force me to play in my backyard once in a while, or play a sport after school, I wouldn't. Phones, tablets, and computers are taking away the time we spend
I still come back to when I?m at my friend?s house. H ow much I wish we had the strength to unplug for half an hour and go outdoors. Laughing and enjoying with the sun shining on our backs. If there is one thing I learned is that technology has many unknown consequences, and we need to become aware of them, so we can disconnect for a while. 2
No More Homework !
By: Juan Diego
My story of homework One day I entered math class and freaked out when I saw the board. All the homework I had! Every day in school I pay attention and when I get to math class and I see that there is homework, I stress out. It make me feel that I cannot play or relax because I have a lot of homework. I end up ﬁnishing my homework at 11:00 because there was a lot of homework. So that is why I hate homework. Students should not have homework. It is a waste of time.
No time According to this website, “Debate.org” kids need time to relax, and if they stay up late doing homework the next day they are going to be sleepy in school. Also kids need time to hang out with friends. Kids need social time. There is no time to do anything, not even time to play!!!!!! It takes out your time. My opinion is that children need time with their families and also they need time with friends, and they need to have fun, homework gets them crazy, free time is very important for kids and homework takes their time away, it makes children hate tasks and school, so that is why I agree with this website.
Stress Imagine that you have a lot of homework and it is your friends birthday, but you can’t go because you have math homework, three pages of a test review, also you have a vocabulary test in English and you need to study. Also you have the science showcase and you need to research. Missing your friends birthday would be awful because he is really your friend, but you can’t go because you have a bunch of homework, and you will hate school, and your friend would ask you why didn’t you come. Stress is clearly an impact to children. It makes them mad, it makes them crazy, and if you don’t understand your homework you are going to fail even if you stay up late stressing and doing it, you are still going to fail, and if you fail your parents are going to be mad, and your average is going down and that is bad.
Why do kids hate homework Did you know that if you have homework before seventh grade it could get you crazy, like mad, frustrated and it impacts you, and kids don’t deserve stress their to young to ﬁght stress. This is according to “Debate.org”. So that is why stress is a very bad thing for everyone, but especially for kids that have homework. My opinion is that stress is a bad thing for children.
Statistics and facts Did you know that most of the children don’t like homework,76% don’t like it and 24% like it, according to “Debate.org.” Including me, I hate homework. Every day I say “I hate homework.” This website “Debate.org” is correct because everyone most of the children don’t like homework. So my opinion is that this website is correct. One month ago I went to a restaurant, and something in my mind made me feel that something was missing.Then I realized that I had math homework, and science homework. The school think that it is necessary because they say that it is a review of what you did in class, it is really the same thing. At the end I went to sleep at 12:00 because I was doing my homework. The next day I went to school very tired so I didn't pay attention in class. That night when I went to the restaurant I felt that there was not enough time. So I stressed a lot. So I think that homework is a bad thing, because of stress, because of time and because children don’t like it. And I think that you should believe this to.
WAYS TO HELP STOP GLOBAL WARMING In reality, you can do something about global warming. You can help other generations by taking care of the earth.
Use Solar Panels One of the things that you can do about global warming is use solar panels in your house or cars. You can use a solar car that will not use electricity and it will help the earth. Maybe you think that it doesn’t matter because it is only one car in the whole world, but it does matter because one little change in the world makes a big difference
HELP STOP GLOBAL WARMING By Camille Salvetti
Save Electricity In addition to using a solar panel car, you can reuse your plastic like plastic containers, plastic water bottles and stop using straws. In fact, you can also do small things like save water and electricity, to do this you can the turn of the water faucet while you are washing your teeth and turn off the light when you are not in your room. These things help stop global warming because energy is the largest production of carbon dioxide and carbon dioxide is making global warming worse, actually it is the main reason that has caused global warming. So if you help reduce energy there will be less carbon dioxide and that means less global warming. These are just some things that you can do to stop global warming.
Breathing in the fresh air on la Panamericana, I was admiring the sky and the cars that passed by when all of a sudden a huge truck honked right next to my ear. When the truck passed I was relieved and all of a sudden a huge cloud of smoke landed on my face. I started coughing and coughing and when I thought it was all over I took a big breath in and it wasn’t fresh air; it was black smoke. After I could breathe fresh air again I started thinking about how this smoke from all these trucks, buses and cars is affecting the earth. I started wondering if this increased the amount of global warming there is. It actually does. Global warming is destroying the world. Every single day it is getting worse. In the first place, the world is becoming hotter and hotter, melting the ice in the Arctic. Every year about 1,500 to 900 polar bears is dying in northeast Alaska and Northwest Territories because of global warming. We need to help stop global warming. We need to do something. Because of global warming, we are dying. According to National Geographic, “Climate change is heating the Arctic faster than anywhere else, and the sea ice is shrinking 14% per decade. Even today, in the middle of the bitterly cold Arctic winter, satellites show there is about 770,000 square miles less sea ice 1981 to 2010 median.” This is bad. Do you want animals to die because their habitat is slowly disappearing? The habitat of polar animals is disappearing and they will die if we don’t do something In the future there will be no sea ice left for the Arctic animals and they will slowly die. Days will be much hotter and many people will die of dehydration. Do you want people to die? Children are more weak in health than grown-ups; they need more water and food than the grown-ups.
Poor people don’t have much money but a lot of them have kids. They need more money to survive but if global warming gets worse poor kids will need more water but their parents can’t afford it so they dehydrate and die. “Global warming isn’t a prediction. It is happening.” This is a wise quote by James Hansen. We actually aren’t realizing that global warming is really happening, we are so busy succeeding in our daily lives that we don’t really realize that the things outside are really happening.
You know how your parents always set the example and how you think that they are doing the right thing? Well, all over the world adults/parents are not taking care of the earth. They are throwing trash in the street and ocean, they are making factories that release pollution to the air, they are cutting down every single tree in the world. After all, without trees, there is less oxygen and more carbon dioxide that is making global warming worse. Parents and adults are making the worst impacts in the world and we kids need to change our behavior, we need to save the earth and help it get better. Let's help by planting more trees and making an impact in the world no matter how small. You need to help stop global warming because it's harming the earth and all living things inside it. If you want to give a better world to the next generation and not a horrible one that no one can live in, then stop global warming.
Floods will triple by 2030
The number of people affected from the floods . this year will triple by 3 from 21 million to about 54 million. This will triple because of global warming.

In other schools it might also happen but worse or not that worse. This shows that there are lots of people in some schools that are stereotypical.

Inclusion problems By:Isabella Stork
hen I was walking through the school I
saw a person sitting by herself looking really sad. I asked her “Are you ok?” and she answered, “No." People feel lonely because of not being included in school.There are many people in this school who are “friendless.” There are also many schools that don’t even have any groups of friends.Students need to be included more at school. Not including kids `or making them feel welcome makes them feel bad. “Inclusion is a right, not a privilege for a select few,” said Judge Geary.” Inclusion is not tolerance,it is requested acceptance”.-Jw teach.” Exclusion is always dangerous. Inclusion is the only safety if we are to have a peaceful world”.-Pearl S. black. These quotes are told by famous people a.k.a authors and these quotes are meaningful and we should understand them. Imagine if everyone was included in school. Everyone would be happy. Students and teachers would be happy and most important no one would be excluded. This quote would mean that kids should not feel excluded without any friends and be happy with at least a bit of friends. If you see a child alone sit next to them to make them feel good. Inclusion is a bigger problem than you think When we hear of bullying we think, “Oh bullying is horrible for kids.” But what almost no one
knows that bullying is also the cause of exclusion. Not all schools have bullying. When a student gets picked on they usually don’t have a lot of friends because they make nonsense or made up stuff about him. Like, “Oh this boy likes garbage”. Also cyberbullying can also be the cause of exclusion too. When someone
hears that you have a birthmark shaped as a trash can. ”Hey trash,where is all the plastic?” Bullying and cyberbullying can be a problem for
inclusion. Bullying can also include a lot
punching and self harm.
What exclusion leads too Exclusion is something that is really important. Exclusion can lead to self harm,bullying and depression. People should stop this because something minor can turn into something major. Exclusion turns into self-harm then self-harm turns into depression,then it turns to maybe even suicide. Exclusion mostly happens to kids not adults.So here is a question we should all answer. Why are we letting such minor problems turn into major problems? Feeling left out is like
not feeling important. Imagine being a kid that's left out. You only have one friend. Everyone bullies you and you feel miserable. Would you like this kid to be you? Names of exclusion People have thought of the words “nerd and geeks”. This is just a name that doesn’t even make sense. Why would you call someone a “nerd”. Being smart has nothing wrong with that. Being a “geek” is not bad, knowing a lot of computer stuff is really good. You shouldn’t be ashamed of that. There’s another name that kids are being called in schools.It is “dork”. Being a “dork”is totally normal. You should be happy of what are you are and who are you and no one should be telling you that “You’re not special”. Just be yourself. The main source Exclusion is the main source to a lot of problems in school. A lot of people really just don’t care. They should care because inclusion is like a minor situation but the more people make that person feel left out the problems get bigger like exclusion
Interesting Words Inclusion :When kids are with kids at school Exclusion:When kids are left out at school Bullying:Kids or adults getting teased but harsher Cyberbullying:When kids or adults tease online+
then turns into bullying then it goes to something even more harsher. Suicide and self harm, these two don’t usually happen but through my eyes I would feel like “happy”when I cut myself because all of the problems just go away. Some people don’t think that bullying and cyberbullying is a big problem but through my eyes I would say it’s a really big problem. Ways you can help Bullies don’t think of what they are causing to the poor victims/targets. Victims/targets of bullying try not to remember what the bullies say because it hurts their feelings. About a bit of people stand up for these bullies but almost none of the victimes stand up. They only ignore this. Some ways you can help are: 1. Stand up to kids being bullied 2. Sit down with kids who are not with anyone 3. Tell the teachers if someone is being bullied 4. If someone wants to die, help them 5. If someone wants to cut themself,help them We should all help these kids because these kids feel bad about being excluded in friendships.
Does Education Really Matters? By:Ana Sofia Taipe
Walking or traveling in a car every single week, I see at least one child on the streets working by singing, dancing, or selling sweets, etc. I know that they must be studying in a school and learning things, just like all children, but that is not the reality. When I am on the school bus, I see through the window a woman with a kid on her back carrying the boy with a blanket fastened to them. At the appearance, they don’t have anywhere to live, don’t have someone to help them. Then I see the kids on the bus and there is a lot of difference between us and them. Unfortunately, not all the people are born with enough money. So, I was thinking that this is an example of most of the families in many places because maybe are passing through same difficult times as them.
The Ministry of Education of Perú
It Really Try To Do their Work The Ministry of Education has a lot of problems to solve, but sometimes it shows that they really try to do the possible about children going to school and study. Unfortunately, the national schools are free but they don't bring the uniform and the materials in some schools, so the student’s family have to bring to the school that materials and the uniform, but they can’t. “25.8 percent of the population lives in poverty,” said the website The Borgen Project. That is one of the reasons of why sometimes that Ministry focus in another problems about Peru. However some of us don’t value the food and the education we have from our parents sacrifice. As we are stable in every aspect like we can eat, we are in a good school, we don’t recognize it.
Education to Every Single Child
Before in Perú the education was a privilege for rich families to can pay a lot for it, just a few people got education and most of the population didn’t. But now as we are more advanced in every aspect like technology and things like that, the education past a law that has to be obeyed in Peru. “34 percent of children ages 5 to 17 work in the labor force” according to a website statistic named The Borgen Project.
Some Difficulties to Resolve
It works on what they can to resolve the problem, but sometimes they are so busy and they ignore the problem because of another more important one. I believe that everyone must have access to a good school because the humans are the only living thing that can change the world to be better, so they first have to have knowledges to make or create it, so the best way is in learning in a school. But this is not easy as it looks because as I wrote before, some people can’t go to school for any reason like one of the most known about lack of money, and since everything bad has something good there are also people who can help them to solve the problem so poor children can go to school.
This could be because sometimes mom or dad or both of them lost their jobs, and this affects their families life, the money from one moment to another disappears and they don’t have any to pay for the house, electricity, clothes or even meat , as you see the real life is hard. That becomes a problem and as
the parents don’t have enough money, the children can’t go to school anymore because maybe they are searching a job and they are busy to be preparing the children to go to school in the mornings, also if they can’t find it they don’t have money to pay what school needs. They need money, so then becomes the hard cases that children have to help them to can live by working.
because the only living thing that can change the world for better are us the humans as he said.
We Can Be Able to Do What We Propose
When mom and dad have died and the children from them pass to grandparents or uncles, etc, and the families money was precise to themselves or are poor and they can’t keep the children, so one of the ways that can resolve the problem is that the children work. Also one of the possibilities about why some students students don’t go to school that I hate is that some mean people maybe are making them work to can earn money without hard work from them and that mean person is controlling that poor children by threatening or something like that. Fortunately this is seen in less situations here in Peru than the other possibilities according when I saw the news in the mornings. That third reason is an explanation of why we need to go to school because maybe that people mean who are controlling the children didn’t go to school when they were children, so maybe they do not realize that they are doing wrong in the world.
We have the ability to make extraordinary things if we study as much as academically and psychologically, and where can we have more possibilities to do that, is at school. When we are students we don’t appreciate that school is so important, few recognize it but not all, they think that is so bored, but when they are like in high school or now going to the university they miss how nice the experience was. School teach us a lot about life and what is going on, that is why “The Ministry of Education” of Perú takes responsibility for that.
Education Open a Lot of Doors
So finally, if every child in Peru has education, we will have good consequences like focusing on other problems like the pollution in Peru and how to control it, and we will grow as a country because we are going to have more educated people who can help and think new ways to make the world better; as I always said is that the change starts from you, so then children will be able to think and learn new things to can start the change. How we are going in the years also less discrimination will be show off. As you can read there are a lot of things that humans can do, since school because the school connects us to the reality. No children must lose that opportunity!
Changing the World to Better As the ex president South Africa Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world". When children have no education it’s not just bad to them, is also bad for the world
doesn’t work out and the animal ends up dying because of something that failed.
Wrong animal Testing
Making it worse
By Pilar Tremouilles
Animal testing is wrong. It can cause millions of negative impacts in the world. It can even cause death, for a ton of different species. The animals that are being used for testing, are getting abused and that is not fair. A ton of animals are dying each year because they get abused. Animals shouldn’t have their lives wasted like this.
Abuse According to an organization called PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, “Each year more than 100 million animals are killed in U.S laboratories. This includes mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish and birds. Before their deaths some animals are forced to inhale toxic fumes, and others are immobilized in devices for hours, some have holes drilled into their skulls, and others have skin burned of or their spinal cords crushed.” This is all happening because companies want to try and make new things like new products, new cures for diseases and new medicines, but most times it
Unfortunately, some companies don’t really care about how these animals are being tortured; they just want to make money by selling products. According to the company PETA, “Some companies are being accused of animal testing, such as Revlon, which is a cosmetics company, and Air France, which is a plane company. Since Air France is an air transportation company they transport animals in the baggage compartments of the plane, and take them to other countries where the animals get caged, cut into, poisoned and killed in experiments.” I think that animal testing affects the society because after all of these poor creatures get killed, the species could become extinct. For example if chickens become extinct people will start to complain that they can’t eat more chicken, and will feel sorry they did nothing from the start, but it was all their fault. As I said before Revlon is a cosmetics company, and what they’re doing according to PETA2 is, “They are selling their products in China, and in China they have policies that in order for you to sell your product, it has to be tested on animals first, because of safety issues.” After the PETA organization found out about this they told the world, and now a lot of cosmetic companies don’t want to sell their products in China because of their rules on having to test animals. I think that this is important for people to know because after this happened since some companies stopped selling their products, or don’t want to start to sell their products in China. In the future companies will try to not use animals for testing their products, and they want to be
like the companies that make money and don’t get accused; they don’t want to be the company that gets accused and earn no money like Revlon.
Companies working for the better Not only are there companies who don’t care about animal deaths, there are companies who are against it. There are companies who try and stop this horror such as PETA because they have a bunch of information on how to stop animals testing, why to stop it, and how you can daily help stop it. Some other companies (I found out about them from an organization called One Green Planet) that joined the fight to stop animal testing are, LUSH, Kiss My face and a bunch more. These companies are helping by joining organizations that help stop animal testing. I think that more companies should be like these businesses because animal testing is wasteful. First of all it wastes money, according to PETA, “9 out of 10 experimental drugs fail in clinical studies.” Second of all it’s old fashioned. Now scientist have discovered more modern ways of testing things that are more accurate than animals and are more safe. Lastly, testing animals is unnecessary, most of the tests they do on animals is for soaps, shampoos, cosmetics and more. We don’t need new types of eyeliner, or soaps or shampoos. We could all just try to use the same products.
Beauty cosmetics I think that if people especially women, start to think about how much money and time they spend on trying to find a new blush that makes them look nicer, or a new foundation or concealer to make them look younger, then they would actually start to notice how many times they change their cosmetics to look younger and more pretty. Just spending your time and going to a cosmetics store and wanting to try and buy something new and different, you’re also contributing to killing animals. What you can do to help stop animal testing is, you can support and donate money to those organizations who also are against animal testing.
Most people don’t notice but they’re all contributing to different types of things in many differents types of ways. It could be contributing to the good side, or to the bad side. We should all be contributing to the good side. We should all stop animal testing.
Facts No experiments are illegal, no matter how cruel irrelevant to human health, redundant, or painful. Even when alternatives are available for animals, the law doesn’t require for them to be used. Laboratory employees have been caught on tape abusing and insulting animals.

Child Abuse by Nannies or Babysitters by : Merian Villaverde
Personal Story When I go to the beach I see children in the beach alone without supervising. I turn around and I see the nanny's talking with each others and they don’t take care of the children. And the children can drown
This is the chart from University of
Reports from Child Abuse According to a report on Newstimes, an attorney mentioned that “the video shows Quilligana holding the three-year-old child’s hand to a hot burner on the stove for more than five seconds, and another shows the nanny picking up the girl and forcing her leg onto the hot stove as the girl screamed and struggled to get away.” this shows that sometimes nannies can influence on child abuse. In the report by Tamar Lewin he said "But child care affects so many children that for society at large, even small effects are important," Professor Booth-LaForce added. "We have to consider whether we're creating a generation of children who have slightly less self-control, slightly more behavior problems, and whether teachers will have to spend a little more time on classroom management and a little less on instruction." This shows that the effect on the children are less self-control, slightly more behavior.
This chart shows that child abuse by nannies increase with victims under 6 years old.
How to know if yours children’s nanny is treating them good? I suggest that parents need to supervise the nanny that takes care of their children. Sometimes parents are not responsible when they do not supervise how does the nanny treat their kids. sometimes parents can’t take care of their children because they have to work, for that they contract a nanny to take care of the children. So parents go to their work thinking that their children are with the nanny, but parents can’t know how does the nanny really treat their children when parents are at work. For that parents have to supervise, and if parents
don’t supervise the nanny probably they don't know how the nanny really treats their children. But how if they are working? Well parents can put cameras to supervise that their children are in good hands. But what if the nanny sees the camera? The nanny probably can pretend to treat well the child, and hit the child where the camera cannot see her. For that parents have to put a hidden camera. So the nanny does not know she is being observed.Now parents can know how the nanny treat the children when they are not at home. So parents can observe the nannies and make sure nothing bad happens to their children.
Parents needs to go out to work everyday to bring money home. This situation will continue being careful when a parent chooses somebody that takes care of their children is an important thing that parents should think about before going work.Children and their safety is more important than any job.
Companies and Trust Do Not Go Together By Gael Wu
Cars crash, phones stop working, information revealed without users knowing. I am going to talk about companies they promote as this awesome person that cares so much about their customers but is what they say true. Well, we buy a lot of things. One time my family bought a fidget spinner on this webpage that they said was so great. But they never brought us the fidget spinner! That's when I started thinking should we trust companies or should we not when they have lied to us so many times? Why do we still have to trust them?
Hey facebook your secret is here. Companies lie. They tell things that are not true and they earn money. This should not even be legal. To begin with: Facebook! What happened was that they revealed people's information and that was illegal. They were selling people's information to a British company. They literally showed that they only care for money when they sold 50 million people's information. That's more than the population of Peru . And that is not legal. They lied to all their audience and they have millions of users who trusted them. They lied to all does users because of money.Can you believe this? and if this company that is so big does it then others are doing it too! Another company that lied is the Volkswagen car company. If you did not know it is not expensive but not cheap but as Facebook, they lie to their clients. Volkswagen had a device so
that when it was tested they could change the amount of pollution it detected. It was called the defeat device when it was tested the device changed the way the car measured the amount of pollution it could produce. And that is illegal! At that exVolkswagenact moment the CEO of all the brands related to , Porsche Bugatti that have the same owner, left the company. What a coincidence! Totally a coincidence. Already that's two examples from worldwide companies they got famous by lying. Unacceptable! They are companies worth billions of dollars. They don't need to grow more but in this world money is more important than people. They don't care if it is bad for you they only care that they earn money. And this is only one more of the examples. There are thousands only they are smaller companies.
Are oil companies innocent. But I am not going to talk about the small companies. Let's talk about oil companies. We know that much pollution most is produced by oil companies and their products but I am going to talk about why we should not trust them. Clearly now they are harming the environment. They know exactly what they are doing but they are looking for money like most of the people in this world. They know everything even governments support them. When biofuels started getting into the market the US
government dropped the oil price and the us dollar was worth more so people thought oil was cheaper but it wasn't really. (So the government also tricked us but that is another topic.) If companies are supported by governments that mean they are undefeatable.Only we can fight. We are the only people that can make a change; people can change anything. We are the only thing that can change the government. Together we are strong; alone we cannot change. So lets make a change! Let's get our respect back. We deserve to know the truth, not a lie, that is harming us. So let's make a change and let's make companies tell us the truth together. If you don't believe this then you don't believe in human rights. They are controlling you every day life and you can't even trust them. well this world is like this now and we can choose to let it become worse or make it a better place. So will you take action or let your world die and be taken by the worst if people? I just gave examples of every type social media transportacion pollution and there are more but it would take pages to mention all of the companies that are doing this you should make a change lets complain let's take action. .
you know so defend yourself
Facts 109000 is the amount of times a average man lies And a woman 60,00 so if that is true how many times do companies lie.
