About me:

I am a student at Champlain College Saint-Lambert, in the General Social Sciences program. I live in Boucherville and I am a figure skater.

On this Day of inauguration, I am most concerned about how Donald Trump will represent the United States during international decisions and I hope he will use his business-man knowledge to take smart decisions.

Having worked on diverse issues facing children in my previous writings, I have decided to focus on another issue I find should be of greater importance to all: the elderly and how they are treated in society. Indeed, in an article published by Justin McElroy on March 29th, 2017 on the CBC News website called Vancouver Seniors Face Eviction from Retirement Home explains the present situation of elders in Vancouver who were forced to move from their retirement home, Terraces on 7th.

Through the research made for our last assignment, the work of an organisation called the Missing Children’s Network touched and interested me more than the others, and this is why in this assignment, I will concentrate on the fate of missing children and ways to lower the number of children that go missing by integrating the concept of New Power.

The Missing Children’s Network is a non-profit organisation based in Quebec that intervenes with families with missing children, helping them doing everything possible to find them and preventing eventual disappearances. Since 1985, The Missing Children Network finds it important to use the help of Case Workers (intermediates between family and organisation), the help of the police and the help of volunteers to find missing children throughout the province.

School benches are a place where we spend a big part of our life and where learn skills and information that will turn out to be useful in our future life and career choice, but since we are obliged by law to go to school until we are 16, what happens to our rights as students during that period in our life? Are they the same as any human rights we would have in the labor market or while being unemployed?

In this new Trump era, women’s rights and conditions have been a hot topic among media around the world. Everybody says we must make a difference, change our ways to help the women in need, but do these people really take action and do the necessary, or do they just stand there and watch?

Multiple individuals have lost family members, friends, relatives due to cancer. It has touched many people and many factors in today's society raise the risk of having cancer. Even our food has become a risk factor according to Ben Tinker. In his new article "Report finds chemicals in one-third of fast food packaging", published on the first of February 2017 on CNN's website, Tinker wants to increase the awareness of the amount of chemicals found in the food we eat. I believe it is extremely important to know this since I know two relatives who have cancer.

The video that was posted on Ted Ed talks “how to separate fact from fiction online” by Markham Nolan, who is a managing editor of “storyful.com” and a journalist for Ted Ed, he discusses how we rely on the audience for the facts that we receive and trust. An example he used was when on the 5th of September there was a 7.6 magnitude earthquake in Costa Rica. It takes 60 seconds for it to travel to Managua which is 250 kilometers away. Thirty seconds after it hit Managua, there was a post on twitter and it was someone saying “tremblor” which means earthquake.

The article “How to tell fake news from real news” written by Laura McClure who is an award-winning journalist and the TED-Ed editor talks about how to tell if news you see on the internet is fake or real. She talks about the steps on how to tell if a news is fake or not by looking at who wrote it, what claims the news makes, when the news was published and where was the news published. The reason why I chose this article and why I think it is a credible source is because TED hosts many lectures called “TED Talk” from different people on pertaining to different fields and subjects.

Since business-man Donald Trump joined the race as a candidate to become the 45th President of the United States, many considered his promises and speeches as a practical joke, but the majority of the country thought he seemed like the obvious choice, even though his choices are not always to the best interest of the population…
