While I was on my way to school one morning, I heard that Harvey Weinstein had serious allegations made against him. He was being called out on national radio because society saw it as an opportunity to call out his poor behavior. This was the first time I had heard of a prominent figure enduring the effects of cancel culture. I saw this as a chance to give his victims a voice. I am writing to you today to express concern over the spread of cancel culture as the movement has shifted away from its main intentions. As mentioned in the story above, I defined the moment that Harvey Weinstein got called out as the beginning of positive change. The origins of this culture are rooted in calling out poor behavior, which is a positive aspect because it brings attention to issues that are being...

Many parents make the mistake of not enrolling their children into some sort of early care and education program with the excuse that the children are too young or so that they would start school later. What they fail to see is that this is hurting their children in more ways than they can imagine. Early childhood care and education can be of significant importance to children’s development and they can also be very helpful to families with young children. Moreover, research has shown that early childhood care and education can also lead to significant improvements in short and long-term health-related outcomes for children. What is early care and education? Early care and education (ECE) are settings in which children are cared for and educated by people other than their parents...

Lots of excitement, tension, and adrenaline are something that everyone feels before the first date. First of all, you must have good communication with your partner to feel relaxed in their company. It is natural to want to show yourself in the best possible light in a comfortable environment.

Cultural events Use the internet and check what cultural events are currently in your city. Whether it is a visit to a museum or an interesting exhibition of paintings. The theater is also a good...

The new pandemic has forced the whole world to update daily hygiene standards. If earlier it was believed that washing hands with soap and water is enough, now we know that it's important to know how to properly do that. The best solution is to use special soap dispensers, especially in public places with high traffic. It is very important that no one personally touches such devices. In sensor devices, the skin surface is processed at a distance of about 10-15 cm from the device. There are two main types of dispensers - manual and touch-sensitive. In the first case, to squeeze out a portion of soap, you need to press the button connected to the piston. Whereas automatic dispensers do not require pressing, since they are based on a completely different principle of operation. Let's take a...

Before you think I’m bitter or jealous, I’m not saying that all influencers are bad and that I dislike them all. I’m saying there are some influencers out there who irk me by using their unwarranted fame to harm others and promote their reckless actions. From those who threw parties during quarantine to those who promote drugs and alcohol to a young audience, there needs to be something done about those who use their platform to change society for the worse. Some background: these past weeks have been me scouring social media and the internet, compiling information on what influencers are, how they work, and how they’ve affected society, and my findings were they’ve messed us up. I’ve read several peer-reviewed articles showing how vaping and drinking are being normalized for young...

You recently had someone ask you; "What is your dream to accomplish?". To which you replied; "I don't have dreams.". This made your thoughts go into a downward spiral and forced you to ask yourself... "What are you doing in life?". No answer was presented. When I am faced with questions about my future I seem to always over react and blow things out of proportion. It's a simple and innocent enough question that shouldn't be answered with hostility but that's exactly what I did. It forced me to take a look at my life and reflect on what I've accomplished... what I want to accomplish. More so, it just made me realize what I haven't accomplished. All my life I had never planned for the future. I never thought about the future. Sure, you go through schooling and you're always faced...

It has been nearly a year since this world-wide pandemic has taken over. It has been nearly a year since we learned just how far Rutherford County School Board and Governor Bill Lee are willing to protect the teachers and staff of their schools. At the end of the day, yes, students choose whether or not they would like to attend a physical or online school. Unlike the students, teachers, and workers of these in-person schools do not have such a luxury. Instead, they are told that they are out of a job if they choose not to attend. Mind you, this not only goes for the healthy and able-bodied teachers- but the teachers who suffer from susceptibility, chronic illnesses, and many other factors that qualify them as high risk. While attending high school, I made many friends along the...
