On November 24th 2016, the Canadian province of Nova Scotia has, for the first time in North American history, set up the first successful, energy-producing turbine located at the bottom of the Midas Passage in the Bay of Fundy. The article describes the turbine as 1000 tonnes in weight, five-storeys in height and is able to generate two megawatts of electricity – enough to power 500 homes.

In an ever growing consumerist market, environmentalists continue to scramble towards a glimmering notion that can assist in saving our planet: sustainability. Canada is one of the leading producers of timber in the world, but in an economy that is always demanding more production, it can be difficult to draw the line before we take too much.

For decades, Africans fleeing from their war torn countries have resided in many parts  of India.    As I researched further into Africans living in India, I found out about the ongoing issue of racism.  There have been many short films, and news articles showing how badly Africans living in India are treated.  Some Indians have gone as far as harassing, and  assaulting many African students.   Some of these hate crimes even take place during the day when many people are around. No matter where Africans go, they are discriminated against-and it’s sad.

As Americans, we often regard ourselves as leading the charge against the unethical treatment of individuals with regard to gender. Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is that we are stuck in the dark ages when it comes to the mindless and senseless practice of male circumcision. To demonstrate the ugly reality of this unnecessary operation, imagine this: the parents of a newborn take their child to the doctor. They tell the doctor they want their son's nose fixed. The doctor is confused by this request, so she asks the parents to explain the problem with his nose.

     Why is it that girls are most often considered and encouraged to be like flower petals—beautiful and artsy—instead of stems where complexity and science is a beauty of its own? Why is there a low ratio of girls to guys in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields?

            Ocean acidification is a leading issue on the forefront of environmental degradation in relation to the negative effects of anthropogenic carbon. Adrienne South, a journalist for Global News, wrote an article looking at ocean acidification in relation to excess carbon emissions. About a quarter of all the carbon emitted on a global scale is absorbed by the world’s oceans, causing their pH to drop, and in turn become more acidic. The acidity of the water initiates a decrease insoluble carbonate which is essential in the process for marine species to build shells.
