A public schools job for a student is to teach freedom of thought and speech. This includes not discriminating a certain belief system and not promoting one’s own world view. On October 15, 2015, a history teacher did just this. He promoted his own religious beliefs and made a discriminating comment on a young student’s own beliefs. This event made its way to court with people on both sides of the argument but the student’s argument won with the court. The school faced consequences and the teacher that was involved faced disciplinary actions. My opinion is this.

Entomophagy is the practice of eating comestible insects such as arachnids and centipedes. This process is shunned upon by the societies of rich countries as the Europeans looked down upon it when colonizing the world because they observed many tribes they considered as ‘savages’ practicing this. It can also be because due to western culinary habits rooting from colder climates with fewer insects and increased farming of larger animals.

You’ve probably already had a ‘’brain freeze’’ while you were eating ice cream. This unpleasant headache is discussed in the medical literature since at least the 1850’s, but the International Headache Society has only recognized it in 1988 under the name of ‘’cold stimulus headache’’.   By the International Classification of Headache Disorders, the “Ice Cream Headache” causes pain that starts when you apply a cold stimulus either to the head or mouth. Also, the pain will ease away shortly after the cold stimulus ends.
