Should Public Transport be Free of Charge

Every one of us probably used public transport once in his lifetime. If it was a train a bur or a subway, we have to pay for it, but is that really necessary? It is a theme, which is often discussed, but I am convinced that if public transport is free we would have a better world. It should be free of charge to give everyone the opportunity to get to their destination.

Habitat Destruction Essay

There are many species in the world. The majority of them lived in bodies of water and many are on land. But these living organisms have been threatened and others have been extinct because of habitat change due to shifting climate. Scientific methods have been applied by major scientists to prove that from the last two hundred years, the earth’s temperature began to increase steadily on a rate of 1 Fahrenheit per century. Society believes that this issue is not a true concern. But in reality, the heat that’s being trapped in the atmosphere causes climate changes to occur. These sudden changes make it harder for living organisms to survive. The result of burning of coal and fossil fuel, desertification, and deforestation are the reasons why the heating and changes of the earth is taking place. When will all of these man made activities end? Technology itself is not even close to solving this problem.

Medical Marijuana

Legalizing Marijuana Is Beneficial
Grass, pot, weed, bud, dope, indo, hydro, and good old Mary Jane are just a few of the street terms used for marijuana. Marijuana is defined as a mixture of the flowers, stems, and leaves of the Cannabis Sativa plant. When marijuana is smoked, THC [delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol] the active ingredient in marijuana goes from the lungs into the bloodstream, which carries the chemical to all organs in the body (National Institute on Drug Abuse 1). This chemical is what causes the ’high’ people experience by inducing relaxation and heightening the senses (National Drug Intelligence Center 1). “In the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, marijuana was classified as a schedule 1 substance, which put marijuana into a class with cocaine and other such drugs” (Rawson 1). Many facts have come into perspective since this act that counter the purpose in keeping marijuana illegal. As long as restrictions are set, then the legalization of marijuana would help the medical world, the economy, and the judicial system.

Faces give no reaction. pain is what is left in the end, yet we live we die this is life but WHY?..

Euthanasia is the termination of life. There are different types of euthanasia. Active euthanasia is the death of a person through a direct action, in response to a request from that person. Involuntary euthanasia is the killing of a person who has not explicitly requested aid in dying (Robinson). So the question comes up, is euthanasia right? I say yes.

The Stimulus Plan; American Recovery and Investment Act 2009

The Stimulus Package, or the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, is a way to help the economy by putting money into the people’s hand and let them spend on whatever they want. But is it really a good and necessary plan and is this the right time for it? Do the American people like it? The answer is definitely no, this plan is at the wrong time, wrong place, and it will not work. Why? The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 might create temporary jobs while cut many more jobs, or perhaps even create a trade war with other countries, and spend the money on the wrong things.

Legalization of Marijuana

Though some people may abuse the drug, marijuana should be legalized because of the benefits the drug offers to many others. There are medical benefits to marijuana use such as for cancer patients, people infected with AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and epileptics. The physical effects of marijuana use are relatively harmless. The government could make a significant profit by taxing marijuana if the drug was legalized and possibly diminish the drug dealers business. By decriminalizing the drug, the government would also save money because the United States spends millions of dollars to enforce marijuana laws.

Are Uniforms a Good Way to Improve Student Discipline and Motivation?

I believe that if the children in a school have to wear uniforms then the child would be forced to focus more on their studies more then what the other students got as new clothes for Christmas or a birthday. There are several parents that can’t afford to buy their children new clothes so that they will not have to wear the same thing over and over again through the week. This way the child will not feel like everyone else is better off than them because they have better cloths.
