I found an article Are Recent College Graduates Finding Good Jobs? (Jaison R. Abel and colleagues., 2014), which did a great job on discussing issues about unemployment and underemployment of people who do or do not have a bachelor’s degree or higher, and have recently graduated or not, and formatted figures based on data of different way to look into the question.

Having a child that has ambiguous genitals at birth is not uncommon. It never has been since human beings have been in existence. In fact, one in every two-thousand baby that is born will be born with ambiguous genitalia (Intersex Society of North America, 2013). In an exciting time and place, I came across a provocative and contemporary study on the Intersex condition and how another country may handle this condition.

On CNN.com, I read an article by Ivan Watson and Gul Tuysuz titled “Turkish PM vows to 'eradicate' Twitter, users see service disruptions”.  The article stated that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a speech at a campaign rally about wiping out Twitter which is 10 days before election.  He stated at this speech that eradicating Twitter has nothing to do with freedom but the world will know their power once they get rid of twitter.

Interestingly enough, a research study by Kuper, Nussbaum and Mustanki has found that there are infinite amounts of genders. With the last five to ten years, there has been an outcry by the Transgender and Queer community to realize the existence of other Genders and to realize the importance.

There is an increasingly significant amount of students, faculty and staff members who openly identify themselves as, Transgender (Trans*). Transgender is defined as, an umbrella term used to describe people who differ from social gender norms. For some people it is when their assigned sex at birth and personal internal sense of gender identity differ (The Trevor Project, 2014).

Transgender people are faced with confusion over their self-identity starting from a young age. This feeling of not identifying with its own body leads to a journey towards self-acceptance, journey that often encounters hardships. Only when transgender people are sure of their self-identification and accept their new self can they open up to the world about their new gender in the hopes of being accepted. How do you feel, however, when the people that you must trust in order to be able to change sex refuse you?

It has always baffled me that Americans are able to claim to be animal rights activists while simultaneously sitting down to a nice steak dinner. It seems to me that “ignorance is bliss” should be a slogan printed on every neatly packaged corpse able to be purchased in a super market. Namit Arora, author of “On Eating Animals”, brings up an interesting point: why are we okay with eating some animals, such as chickens, pigs, and cows, but are outraged at the idea of eating “cute” animals such as cats and dogs (p. 28)?
