Education is arguably the most valuable commodity in one’s life and, thus, should be considered an essential service. Sadly, however, its accessibility is questionable when special needs students are involved. Their integration into the classroom and society is difficult at the best of times. In fact living with a handicap makes getting an education even harder for special needs students as they feel left out of social circles and are deprived of basic educational services due to insufficient funding.

When I tell people I am volunteering to help the environment, one of two reactions occur. Either they fully support me and encourage me or they tell me in despair that they don’t believe my actions will do much good in the grand scheme of things. The weird thing is, no one seems to be opposed to the idea of being environmentally conscious. This semester, I have had two main volunteer projects ongoing. The first was the collection of signatures for a petition that aims to preserve biodiversity. The second was to help the plight of the monarch butterfly which is facing extinction.

Raising a child with special needs is not an easy task. Despite the complexity of the task, parents manage to raise their children with the help of government services. However, due to the recent budget cuts, the only special-needs preschool in  Windsor is forced to cease operations after nearly four decades of service. As reported in the Windsor Star by Craig Pearson on April 5th 2015, the care center was more than a babysitting service for daytime hours. It allowed children to interact with each other in a safe environment and develop creativity.

            Unfortunately, It is never uncommon to hear about bullying occurring in schools. However, when an instructor is the oppressor, and a special needs student is the victim, people take notice. In the fall of 2011, a 15-year-old special needs student was the victim of bullying from his teacher. He faced countless verbal abuses and taunts. His parents, though skeptical at first, equipped their son with a camera to catch the teacher in the act of bullying. The footage he captured revealed countless abuses being made.

The media has a powerful and unmatchable influence on our society, and it influences both the impressionable and seemingly non-impressionable ages. The media frames its information in a way to be most convincing and seemingly true in order to make its intended message effective. However, many times the information is not consistent with the truth or seems to be more harmful that it actually is.

Over the course of history, many influential people have come and gone. Arguably, one of the most influential among them was Dr Martin Luther King Jr. The role he played in the civil rights movement in the 1950s was vital. He shed light on racism and flead peaceful manifestations to fight for the civil rights of blacks, women and veterans ("Martin Luther King Jr."). He has become a household name as his legacy and accomplishements continue to have an effect on modern day society.

Recently, a severe case of bullying has surfaced. An unnamed student in New York State has allegedly forced a special-need student to drink their own urine. The bully filmed the incident and posted the video on the Internet. In addition to this harassment, the student is also a repeated offender as he was involved in infamously bringing a bus driver to tears a few years ago. Nonetheless, Greece Athena High School, the school where the incident occurred, has taken measures to make sure nothing similar happens again.

When it comes to our children’s health, we do our best to insure their safety and enhance their protection against disease. This includes following a regular vaccine schedule. A growing anti-vaccine movement, however, has health officials worried that the recent measles outbreak can have a catastrophic impact on society. The media coverage surrounding the outbreak has increased in the past few months as journalists try to highlight its significance. This coverage, nonetheless, varies from one source to another and from one location to another.

According to an article called At-risk Montreal schools fight high dropout rates published by CBC News on December 13, 2013, dropout rates of students are the most pronounced in the East Island of Montreal mainly because of poverty. On the other hand, Danish students do not seem really affected by this issue since they are getting paid from the government to attend to school, as described by an article from journalist Rick Noack from the Washington Post posted on February 4, 2015 named Why Danish students are paid to go to college.

Just last week, four adults and two children were diagnosed with measles in Toronto. This has many people wondering who is still getting measles in 2015. The answer is very straightforward. The 20 percent of Ontarians who have decided against vaccinating their children are the ones susceptible to measles, and unsurprisingly, are the only ones infected. The scientific proof proving the effectiveness and necessity for vaccinations is undeniable. However, there is still a large percentage of people that opt against vaccinating their children.

  114.4 million viewers. Solely in the United States did this exorbitant number watch the Super Bowl on February 2015, an audience that surpassed any show in the country’s history, including the previous Super Bowl games (Bieler). Yet, football is only part of the entertainment. Indeed, the renowned singer Katy Perry diverted the spectators through extravagant representations of her hit-songs during the half-time show, accompanied by Lenny Kravitz and rapper Missy Elliot. However, the show does not cease during the commercials.
