When it comes to college, sleep is one of those things a student can’t ever seem to get enough of. Whether it’s pulling an all-nighter studying or an all-nighter partying, messing with your sleep schedule and your quality of sleep can drastically affect your learning potential. Sleep isn’t just important for school, it is also important for your health.

In the article "Why is Ebola Less Deadly in America than in Africa?", published on Vox and written by Julia Belluz, the Ebola outburst in America is discussed. In addition to this, Belluz compares the Ebola outburst in America to the African situation, where people have been exposed to it for quite a while. The author begins by explaining that Ebola is a condition where people "die from multi-system organ failure" (Beluz). She then goes on by stating that we used to believe that Ebola was incurable, but that with its appearance in America, we have realized that it is, in fact, treatable.

The film -The Circle- clearly shows that the women in Iran has a lot of life problems. In this movie my most interesting point that women can not do anything without a man.  Actually I know situations like that as a Turkish people because Iran is Turkey's neighbor. Iran is ruled by Islamic Sharia Law. But Iran is using it in a bad way. Because there are very systematic distcriminations against women in Iran.

In Kali Holloway’s article “Racism is so insidious, even black people underestimate it”, posted by the guardian on September 29th, 2014, the author underlines people’s ignorance in regards to the true size of racism and it’s pervasiveness in North American society. Her main point in the article is that most americans (generally white people) don’t believe that racism is a real factor in the US, and that many believe it is “entirely made up by black people”, despite all the evidence to prove it. She begins by underlining the effects of racial profiling in context to the justice system.

Even though the death penalty is abolished in the majority of the countries of the world, in some countries it is still in effect as of today. I believe that this is something that should be changed in the world, and even though major progresses have been made about this situation, it is still an important ethical problem.

              A few days ago, on August 26th, a story came out in Vancouver, B.C. about a man named Hague who may be faced with charges for abusing his one-year-old puppy. Though he publically apologized for his shameful actions, it may be too late for his professional life to be saved. In fact, this man is CEO for one of the largest catering companies in North America and holds a contract with the B.C. Pavilion Corp.
