The organization Fund for Animals has taken steps and has taken forward the fight against the animal animal abused and bad treatment of the animal race. According to Regenstein author of the Fund for Animal, This organization is one of the biggest movements in the way of activist for the national protection of groups of animals. The organizations has participated in activist of rescuing horses, sea animals, and other animals. They also interfere with the shipping of a baby seal to Canada and like this types of cases of marine animals and any type of animal they have taken care of if the organization has told about it at the right time since this organization it’s independent they don’t have that many communications and contact in the government. Like they said “Many of the wild horses, burros, goats, and other animals rescued by the Fund end up, at least temporarily before adoption, at Black Beauty Ranch” (605) This explains that they have rescued a lot of animals for good off the hands of other humans beings, they are also working on a pack with most of the countries for the good of animals.

The Fund for Animals has taken the most important steps to protect animal rights to successfully have this topic worked out, The human race have to make better decision on what to do for this unfortunately cases of animal abused and of breaking the law because it’s making our society look bad in the outside of the country and inside of the country, if animals are calm and peaceful why do the human race have to do such of a bad things like animal abused, the humans beings that don’t care at all about the animal rights  have to make up their minds so the United States of America and the rest of the world can have a better society and such as keeping the Biodiversity good.


President Maduro talks in the UN Assembly about Venezuela

According to New York Times On September 28 2018, President maduro went to New York City for a meting with the UN Assembly to talk about the ‘truth’ of the situation in Venezuela. Mr. Maduro has claim that Venezuela “has always been on their feet and never on their knees” meaning that nothing is wrong with Venezuela, meaning that Venezuela it’s fine and has no crisis

He said the aggression against his county had been driven by the fact that Venezuela “has raised an autonomous project of democratic revolution, of social claim and of building a new model of society based on the historical roots of the nation.” The country was also under threat for geopolitical reasons, as it was known to have the “largest oil reserves in the world”, as well as substantial natural gas reserves and gold.

President Maduro tried to bring the truth to the UN Assembly but all of these are lies just to make people believe something that is not actually happening, Maduro has tried to lie about the situation of Venezuela in front of more than 30 countries and no one has seem to believe it.

Analysis of ” Should Bail Be Eliminated By Carl Shoffers.”

Have you ever gone to jail or heard somebody go to jail? Today we are talking about jail but more specific we are talking about a system called Bail. Bail is a system that allows to serve less time in jail but you are going to have to pay money for his/her infraction.  Our community wants to eliminate bail and we gonna talk about the reasons that motivate this removal.

Should bail be eliminated? Let’s look for examples: A woman called Maranda O Donnell was arrested for driving with expired license and the bail check was $2,500 and she was earning close to minimum wage as a waitress so she did served three days in jail. The same day, O Donnell was pulled over, 37 years old David Dorsey was arrested with more serious crime of felony burglary. His bail set was $30,000 and he paid and he was free the following morning. That shows how bail system is unfair to minimum wage people .

Let’s talk about how bail came to be what it is. It’s started in Medieval England, where sheriffs used it to prevent criminal suspects from running off during the months- long wait for a judge to visit their villages. There was always been a suspicion about bail but 40 years ago bail in the USA was used almost exclusively as collateral to ensure defendants came to court to face charges. In 1970 lawmaker and judges didn’t want to be soft on crime so they set a law that set high bail to keep people in jail. The result was sharp increase in the jail population.

In August, California became the first state to eliminate bail entirely. California is not the only state that eliminated bail, Maryland and New Mexico recently changed judicial rules. New jersey eliminated bail entirely for minor crime like petty theft, simple assault, and trespassing last year.

Should bail be eliminated? I think yes and no because it depends on what kind of crime should require bail. Major crime should not have Bail system but minor crime should have bail. I think it should be set like that so Bail can be fair.

Too Hot To Handle

 

One afternoon the Algerian town of Ouargla, on the edge of the Sahara, recorded a high of 124 degrees Fahrenheit. Abdelmalek Ibek Ag Sahli was at work in a petroleum plant on the outskirts of the town that day. He has to work there for a 12hours daily shift from 7am. The heat was extremely high it was impossible to do the work, he and the rest of his crew they lasted only a few hours.

People were struggling with the unbearable heat this summer. According to the upfront magazine, Japan was walloped by record triple-digit temperatures, killing at least 86 people. And in Europe the river water that cools the reactors was too warm it caused nuclear power plants to shut down. 

scientist say warming is being larger caused by human activities like Burning fossil fuels, like oil and coal, to heat home and power cars. according to the upfront magazine, Because they behave like the panes in a greenhouse, they’re called greenhouse gases, and their influence on Earth’s temperature is called the greenhouse effect. The higher the concentration of greenhouse gases, the warmer the planet gets. 

The scientist is also worry that global warming can make other extreme weather events as well including wildfires, droughts, and hurricanes. According to the upfront magazine, In India, summer heat waves have become commonplace. Sixty-six million Indians live in extreme poverty. That’s about 5 percent of India’s total population of 1.4 billion. More than 200 million citizens don’t have access to electricity, and untold numbers of others couldn’t afford air conditioning even if they did. 

People started having heat stroke, skin rash, dry mouth, nausea, and headaches. Climate change is mostly worse in poorer countries because they don’t have the money and infrastructure necessary to deal with extreme heat waves. According to the upfront magazine, The town’s hospitals and clinics were overrun with patients, and there weren’t enough beds or medical staff. “We tried our best to provide medical treatment,” says Raees Jamali, a  paramedic. “But because of the severity of the heat, there was an unexpected rush and it was really difficult to deal with all patients.”

According to the upfront magazine, many experts fear time is running out. Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, says the heat waves we saw this summer are only the beginning of a dangerous shift in Earth’s temperature, which is only going to get worse.

“We haven’t reached a new normal,” he says. “This isn’t a plateau.”

Fierce storms hit Italy

Strong winds hit Italy left at least 12 people dead and many were killed by falling trees. On Thursday, four people were confirmed to have died in northern Italy, including a man and woman whose car was hit by a falling tree.

In total, an estimated 1.5m cubic meters of trees have been destroyed.  Downed trees were scattered like toothpicks, according to the BBC, officials said: “The winds had knocked down more trees in a handful of hours than local woodcutters could have cut down in three years.”

The storm has left tens of thousands of people were out of electricity on Friday. The people of Italy were fearful and their valleys will be deserted because they have lost their services.

Children orphaned in battle with ISIS

ISIS means The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, officially known as the Daesh group.

Thousands of Iraqi children who lost their parents under the brutality of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) and the battle to retake Iraqi territory from its rule. And they’re at risk of becoming forgotten casualties of the war.

Iraqis also classify as orphans (An orphan is someone who has lost both parents) because a single parent in Iraq culture can’t serve as breadwinner and caregiver, at the same time.

Children in ISIS are getting sick and they are in pain in ISIS because of the war. The future of a whole generation of kids will be affected by the war.

According to the upfront magazine “By the time Iraqi forces, with U.S. help, retook most of the Iraqi territory from extremists in late 2017, some 20,000 children had been orphaned in and around Mosul”.

Even those orphans with their extended families continue to suffer. Many families live on the brink of poverty, having lost most of their possessions in the war.

 

 

 

Should our country allow as many immigrants as possible?

In my honest opinion, I think Honestly we shouldn’t care about the number of foreigners coming into our country, because they desperately need to come to our country to make money.

I found out that Mexicans can no longer be the majority of U.S unauthorized immigrants according to pewresearch.org. There isn’t really a reason for that, but they did explain that the number of unauthorized immigrants from other countries other than Latinos has grown from 5 million to 5.4 million in 2015 but in 2016 it became even larger it got to 5.7 million.

There are 11 million illegal immigrants in our country, half of them work in the fields, build towers and work in restaurant kitchens, so the amount of money they get paid isn’t a lot, they’re staying out of trouble. Trying to keep their family safe.

Tons of Americans care about the illegal immigrants coming into our country because they think they’re taking their jobs, but in reality, they’re just taking the jobs that nobody wants to do, like picking fruits, cleaning tables in restaurants etc. So I really think people need to some being so ignorant because people don’t make that much money at all.

 

 

Forgotten victims of war

“The brutal rule of the Islamic State and the bloody battle to defeat the extremist group has left 20,000 children orphaned in northern Iraq”.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS is an extremist militant group that rules by Wahhabi/Salami law. In Arabic, the group is also known as Daesh. An example of ISIS is the terrorist group that is known for kidnapping western journalists and aid workers as part of their tactics -your dictionary.

They once controlled a large number of areas in northern Iraq and Syria, but then later received help from U.S forces and took back over 99 percent of it. But it doesn’t mean the Islamic State is entirely defeated; according to Upfront Magazine, the Islamic State is still capable of carrying out dangerous attacks across the world.

“Even if the Islamic State is losing both militarily and in terms of terrain,” says Jean-Charles Brisard of the Center for the Analysis of Terrorism in Paris, “the ideology of ISIS remains present in the hearts of individuals who want to harm us.”And one of the many ways the Islamic State is rebuilding their army is major because of orphans.

According to the article, 800,000 to 3 million children have been orphaned since the war began, and before the Iraqi forces could intervene 20,000 children had already been orphaned, the article also reveals that these children that are orphans, most of them have been placed with some extended family but others are placed in the orphanage. With all this, I think that some of these orphans are being recruited into the Islamic State.

Should schools let people use their cell phones during class

It’s always an opinion if teachers should let kids use their cell phones during class, and plenty of students think yes, but on the other hand teachers think it’s a big distraction, it gets them off task.

The good reason why kids to use cell phones the first reason is it prepares them for the real world job, why? because of job workers often call clients, check inventory, use software applications.

Students show learn to use their cell phones for the right purpose, and I really agree on that one, because when kids are on the phones during class, a lot of them are just texting their friends, on social media etc. And they should be using their cellphone for educational purposes, like downloading apps that are helpful for school work, or tests, like Quizlet, Evernote, Oxford dictionary, Office Lens,  My homework student planner, and many more.

Students should also have their cell phones for emergencies, in case if there’re situations like using the calculator on their phones during math tests because sometimes the ones in class aren’t very good or there’re too many kids so they ran out. And situations like if there’s a school threat, and they have no one else with them so they can connect their parents or someone they trust to find a way to rescue them.

The reasons to not allow kids to use their cell phones during class are because they’re too distracted from texting, playing games etc. Because of that, they might not be learning the important things that the teacher is teaching, and they might not be making the grades that they want to make.

There are other good reasons not to allow cellphones are like they get way too addicted to their phones, so they have the mindset of “I cannot live without my phone”. I’m honestly the same way. But I think it’s way more important to live your life doing real things, like getting together with your friends instead of texting them for hours, or do something healthy, because starring at the screen for a long time is very bad for your eyes.

At the end of the day, I think kids should only use their phones during break time, because school is way more important than being on your cell phone, and I think we can all agree on that one.

U.S Mexican Border

5,200 Solders were sent to the border to keep immigrants out of the U.S.  Now there are 10 to 15 thousand solders going to the border.  The immigrant have to walk at least 1,500 miles.  There is a law that means that if a person from a different country comes to America and gives birth and her kid is an U.S citizen.  The migrants would have to walk the equivalent of Dallas to New York City before reaching the bridge separating the agents on the U.S. side from Juarez, Mexico.

The immigrants are coming to America to be free and live a good life.  They want there kids to have a good life.  They want to live away from all the gangs.  They want to live like everyone that lives in America.  They want to live a good life away from wars.

They are leaving early Friday.  They are like 700 miles away from the closest border.  Donald Trump is changing the rule of when a kid is born in America he is automatically a citizen.  He wants to not let the Mexican caravan reach the border and come in without an visa.  They want to get there and try to make there kids lives better so they don’t have to live like there parents did. They want to give there kids a good education so they can get a good job and live a good life.

 

All the men have to be at the border for 90 days.  They already caught some people trying to get into America.  There are about 5 thousand solders there to keep Mexicans out.  He really  doesn’t want any one from Mexico to come in.  He didn’t say anything about kids that have to get kicked out to,  They are allowed to stay in America until they are 18 or older and they have to live own there own.
