The United States of America is a big country. With 322 million inhabitants, it is the third most inhabited country in the world. It is as well known for its diversity and immense culture. However, its population had been divided between two major political parties for more than 150 years now; the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. Even today, we can notice a major difference in the both parties’ method of approaching problems. In other words, they have different worldviews. I will be writing about the different social worldviews between the parties.
The Democratic Party was found in... [+] Read more
Is homeschooling a viable option? That’s a question that has many answers. Lately, the idea of homeschooling has widespread. An article released by the University of Concordia’s newspaper1 has stated that homeschooled students tend to outperform public school students. Homeschooled students have a lot more ease with academic tests. On another view, I believe that learning alone (alone as a student) at home is a big disadvantage on the social life, let me explain why.
In our everyday, we don’t only go to school to learn matter and content. We also go there... [+] Read more
The Liberal Party recently won with a majority. Justin Trudeau, the new Prime Minister, has been elected. We might hear about the deficit that the Liberal Party has promised shortly. Indeed, the Liberal Party wants to run deficits for three years. A deficit is a situation in which the amount by which a sum of money falls short of the required or expected money1. So in the case of the Canada, instead of having a balanced budget (that means no debt), we might have a deficit that goes up to $10 billion per year for the three first year. That’s what Justin Trudeau called ‘’a modest short-term... [+] Read more
We are in September 2015. In a few weeks there will be the Canadian elections going on. That means that for now, we see a couple of debates against the leading party leaders. Well those debates took a weird turn. Tom Mulcair, leader of the NDP, accused Steven Harper, actual Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party to use the ‘’Niqab controversy’’ to his advantage. Basically, according to CBC News, Tom Mulcair said that Steven Harper is hiding behind the Niqab discussion to avoid dealing with his real issues. Obviously, Steven Harper denied it.
To be honest, I find it a bit stupid.... [+] Read more
This week, Snoop Dogg holds the attention with his new website Merryjane.com. The 43 year old rapper Calvin Broadus, known by his stage name Snoop Dogg, announced an upcoming website specialized in Marijuana. This is nothing really surprising coming from him. Snoop Dogg never been scared to yell that he was a smoker and a stoner. As he said, according to the CBC News, the purpose of all this is to inform people about marijuana and to encorage them admit that they smoke weed. He also talked about having some celebrities coming to make a sort of show and to discuss about their... [+] Read more
Genius but immigrant or I should say genius but Muslim. Ahmed Mohamed, a fourteen years old boy from Texas, made his own clock. When he came up to his teacher to show him his work, the teacher ended up not reacting as planned. ‘’The teacher thought it was a bomb’’. Why so? Well probably because Ahmed is Muslim. The poor kid has been arrested and suspended for three days. I find it shocking how a little genius gets judged so roughly just because of a religion or a skin color. Instead of being welcomed with respect and admiration, he gets rejected because of fear and... [+] Read more
Facebook recently attracted the attention of the network’s users. Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Facebook, announced a few days ago the possible release of a dislike button on Facebook. Could you imagine its effects? Nothing is sure yet, but the new is already spreading around. CBC News, BBC News, Forbes, NBC News and countless other articles networks have been announcing the new and discussing about the impact of it. My opinion? Well we don’t know if something is actually going to happen. From my personal experience, it is not the first time I hear of a dislike button... [+] Read more
An article published by ABC News, the 26th of July, explains the risks of playing football. The American football is a popular sport in the North America, but there’s debate about the risks of teenagers playing it. That’s what ABC News shows it their article. They pretend that a research in the United States on 100 high schools and 55 colleges (we don’t have much information about that research), found out that 517,726 injuries in the database caused only in a season. That’s incredible! And let’s not forget that there might be even more.
Well obviously football is a sport can lead to injuries... [+] Read more
11th February 2015, a group of teenagers apparently having nothing to do chose to fill up that loss of time by pushing themselves on snowbanks. Just for fun they said. Well Chris Chafe, 18 years old, challenged his friends to push him down the snowbank in front of a coming bus. Results, he is not here anymore to talk about it. I'm still trying to find out what went through their minds. How can people have fun pushing other people in the street? We could have expected kids from elementary school to have such thoughts, but in this case the "victim" who would also be guilty, was 18 years old. I... [+] Read more
