               “The New Science of Learning:  How to Learn in Harmony with Your Brain,” by Terry Doyle and Todd Zakrajsek, was written to help students find and implement ways to become better learners. Chapter 8, “Paying Attention”, specifically focuses on attention spans and ways to improve learning. The focus of this chapter is to propose ways that students can increase their learning, be better engaged, and get the most out of their lessons, even if the subject matter is boring.

The reason why he is being talked about is because of certain comments he had made on his late night talk show. He had made some apparent fake racial comments on another news story that had been deemed racist by him. This had become an issue because a tweet posted by him on twitter had made some racial comments against Chinese people, the backlash that had happened were by a lot of people wanting his show to be cancelled because of his show being far too racist.

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.

Assisting in the suicide of another individual, whether this person is a close relative or friend or maybe a stranger, it is never an easy task. Euthanasia, is the term that describes exactly that, the assisting in ending an individual's life so that they can be relieved of any pain and or suffering. The difficulty is being able to distinguish what ending an individual's life is based on, compassion is the main reason for the sake of the individual.

I am and always will be a huge gamer, and a female one at that. Sometimes I play RPGs, Role Playing Games, and I rarely play as a female in those games. Role Playing Games are made to give you a fantasy world, with in which you play as you like. It's a 'role play', and you play it however you like. Again, I've been a gamer for a very long time and have been playing games online such as World Of Warcraft and other 'World of warcraft'-esque games (MMORPGs, Massive Multiplayer Online RPGs.)
