Chapter 8, “Paying Attention”, specifically focuses on attention spans and ways to improve learning.

My opinion on gun control varies completley. it is very difficult for me to stay just one sided with yes we need guns, or no there should be no guns. I agree guns are used for protection and make people feel much safer even just in their own home. But guns are also used for the wrong reason and can create much problems and harm to people. There have been many problems due to guns in US history. The Columbine, Sandy hook, and Colorado movie theater, are all well known massacares where innocent people died due to putting a gun in the wrong hands.

People are born into different beliefs and therefore there opinion on worldly controversial topics is probably different as well. For example, the view on death penalty is a controversal debate and is mixed all around the world. Death penalty also known as capital punishment is defined as the practice of executing an individual as the punishment for a specific crime after conviction by a court of law. In the USA, the death sentence is legal in 32 states and Texas got the highest death sentencing rates (Death Penalty Info. Center).

       Multiple debates have been going on for many years and are still not solved at this current time since they are continuously challenging our views and beliefs. Indeed, the question about whether the assisted suicide should be legalized or not remains unanswered. There are several opinion issues about this, and it is often because people do not talk about the same ideas. In fact, there are a lot of options regarding the "earlier death". The euthanasia, the palliative sedation and the "stopping potentially life-sustaining therapy" are some of them (Quill 4).

What says that they are more apt to do the job? For to long we’ve been told that these types of jobs are for men and these for women. We are attributed a tittle based on our gender.

Since the liberal leader Justin Trudeau support the legalization of marijuana by saying that it should be “more accessible to kids”, people seems to discuss more about this political issue. Should marijuana be legalized or not? The author Jesse Kline wrote an article on August 30th 2014 in Don Mills, Ontario where he explains in different ways how the government could warn people about the dangers of doing drugs. Health Canada try to endorse the population by making anti-drug advertisers while the Tories campaigned against Trudeau’s thinking about marijuana.
