Scientists Sound Alarm On Climate

1) How much does the topic concern you in general? Why?

This topic in general does not really concern me all that much. It doesn't concern me because were I live climate  change does not really effect me or anything I do. It is one of those topics I think about but it is just not that important to me.

2) How much have you learned about climate change in school? What do you believe about it?

I have been taught about climate change in school a little bit, but most of the information I know about climate change I have learned on my own. I believe that global warming will come one day but it won't be coming for a while.

3) How compelling do you find this most recent report to be?

This report I find a little compelling to me but it did not really spark my interest any because the places were there was global warming threats are know were near were I live so I was not really compelled by this report much.

Should Colleges Ban Fraternities?

1) Do you want to join a fraternity or sorority? Why or why not?

I would not want to join a fraternity or sorority because I am happy with my life and don't want to join a fraternity group. Fraternity groups are just a group of people that make fun of and pick on others just to make themselves feel good.

2) What do you think fraternities could do to police themselves? Is what Sigma Alpha Epsilon doing enough?

What they could do to police themselves is maybe not abuse or harm people with violence. If they need to make fun of people just keep it vocal harassment. The Stigma Alpha Epsilon is not enough to police themselves.

3) What do you think would be lost if there were no fraternities on college campuses? What might be gained? Would banning fraternities substantially lessen problems like sexual violence and alcohol-fueled injuries and deaths on college campuses or not?

Banning Fraternity groups would solve some of the violence and alcohol injuries but there are other students in collage that would still use alcohol and violence. Things that college campuses would gain from banning fraternity groups would mean there would be a lot less hazing.

Thumbnail Editorials

1) Weather in Maine:  Weather in Maine is really unpredictable. Sometimes we get nice sunny days and sometimes we get crappy dark rainy days. My opinion on weather  in Maine is I like it because we get all four seasons of each year and all types of weather.

2) Facebook:  Facebook is a free online social media site that allows you to connect with friends and family members from all over the world. My opinion of Facebook is the I like to go on and see what is going on and see what other people put on. I post stuff to every now and then.

3) Spending Money:  Money is what people use to pay for stuff like food, gas, bills, etc.  some people spend their money foolishly and some people spend their money on important stuff. I like to save my money and spend it on important stuff like gas, and food, and if I have some extra money I will buy something for myself.

4) Having or getting a job:  Having a job is how people make their money so that can make a living. I have a job and that is how I make my money to pay for my gas and other important stuff.

5) Senior Privileges:  Senior Privileges are privileges for the students that have been in high school for four years. I think that any senior should have privileges to leave school when they have a study hall and should be able to leave school for lunch.

6) A Prized Possesion:  A prized Possession is something that someone has that is very important to them and they would never give it up for anything. My opinion is a prized possession is something that has been passed done to you from your ancestors and is very special.

7) School Lunch: School lunch is lunch that the school makes so kids don't have to bring lunch from home. But if kids want to bring home lunch that is fine to. My opinion is I bring home lunch because the school lunch is not very good.

8) Hunting:  Hunting is a long tradition in Maine and will always be a big tradition. Some people love hunting because it gets them outdoors, other people hate hunting because they don't think it is right to kill these animals. My opinion is that hunting is important to Maine because it keeps the animal population under control and it is a good way to get meat for your family's. I love hunting.
