Of all the years that I have been going to school, the main complaint that I have is that school starts way too early which means that am no getting enough sleep and I am tired when I go into school. This is a very big problem mainly because if all of the students are tired when they get into school every day, it will really effect the first half of their learning period because they won’t be able to retain the information that they are learning as well as they would if they had gotten an extra hour or two of sleep due to schools starting later in the day.

Back in 1990s, the Hubble space telescope was launched to orbit outside Earth’s atmosphere with a mission to help humans answer questions about outer space. It has been 25 years since its launch and Hubble has helped scientists come several steps closer in answering fundamental questions such as: “Who are we?” and “Where do we come from?”. Although, Hubble’s life span is coming to an end and it will soon escape his orbit. Thus, scientists are developing a new space telescope which will replace Hubble: the James Webb space telescope.

As most of you, I've seen the image of Aylan, only three years of age, lying on a Morrocan beach. This powerful image, summarizing the cruelty of the inhumane reality of the Syrian migrants, made me realize how lucky I was. But what about the migrants from the others countries, the ones in the shadow of the Syrian crisis? This entry is dedicated to them, as I'll review a "New-York Times" article on the Iraqis migrants.
