"I agree with you completely. I didn't think about using a gap year as a time to establish residency if you're considering out-of-state college. That is also a very good idea in order to get lowered, in-state, tuition."
"I agree, a gap year could be beneficial if the person who is doing it executes in correctly. If not done well it could completely derail your future because it takes you out of the cycle which is very hard to get back in."
"I think that it isn't a bad idea to consider allowing minors under 18 to vote. You bring up very good points like the fact that some minors are already acting and working as adults. The President governs over everyone including children, so I don't…"
"I agree with you on the ways to stay focused on the tasks you are trying to complete. I struggle with focus when I'm working on things that don't particularly interest me and I often find myself struggling to stay on task if I have my phone near me…"
"I personally think the whole argument over banning books is just a way for people to just complain and constrict the expansion of "woke" ideologies in America. There are infinitely worse things children are accidentally learning about while they're…"
"I think in general social media is bad for humans of all ages. Social media is one of the biggest outlets for people today and it's very addicting and toxic to the brain. I think that social media should be restricted so its more helpful and less…"
"I think that the self-driving technology that has been released could be very useful in the future once its technology is more sound. No machine will ever be 100% foolproof, but I do think the technology and knowledge surrounding self operating…"
"I knew a bit more about watergate because i've been interested in Richard Nixon and what he did in his presidency. I think Nixon was an interesting man and wasn't very good at his job but America is recovering from his mistakes. "
"I understand the need for unmarked police vehicles, but they are tricky when you're not expecting them and I wouldn't mind if they were taken out of practice, but I really don't see that happening ever. The unmarked cars work well and catch people…"
"I think assigned seats are beneficial to the class environment especially in highschool and middle school because students can get off topic easily, and it's best just for everyone to have space between them so everyone can focus and learn. "
A gap year is between your final year of high school and your first year of upper-level learning. The gap year has served as a tool for young students to pause their lives and sit and think about what they genuinely want to pursue. Taking a gap year…
"Practicing mindfulness is always a good idea if you have the tools to do it efficiently. I think it is a very good idea to teach and practice mindfulness with young students. Teaching them the right ways to calmly handle and think through stressful…"
"I have before used AI chats but I always hit a brick wall with them, they are not technologically advanced enough yet to warrant concern in my opinion. I think in the distant future AI could be more advanced and more concerning. "
"Personally, I never used Snapchat My AI because I never found a reason in doing so. I think it can be useful if you know how to use it, but I don't think it is really all that great, like a lot of technology it needs improvement and I think the hype…"
"I think that the abortion pill has been very helpful for women in history and I think it is good that the decision has been to keep it legal. The abortion pill is one of multiple forms of abortion, and I think in general all forms of abortion should…"
"I live in the small town of Harlan, and living here has given me the opportunity to learn that I do not like this size of the town. I think in my future I would love to live in the country outside of a bigger city, or in a moderate-sized town with…"
"I don't think Iowa should impose this exact law, instead I think they should just create harsher laws for social media companies and what they do with the data they're collecting. I think if more regulation in was pushed a lot of the privacy issues…"
"I think that it is a terrible thing that has happened, and schools should never be the target of someone's hysterics. My parents were actually in Nashville when it happened so it was very interesting to get their count of the story, but I wish it…"
"I think that staying calm in situations like a fire breaking out in school is crucial to the survival of everyone. Kids can be hard to manage in the most neutral environments, but when you throw in scary ideas a lot could go wrong. Obviously, the…"
"I think bringing in a more up-to-date feel to these malls and more options could pull in younger generations to spend their money. I know whenever I go to the mall it's typically really hard for me to find something I would spend my money on, it's…"
"I think it is a good thing that the Police department got unified. I don't see an issue with fewer police in town, it is a small town with little to no crime, and if anything happens, the police can just drive to Harlan to help. "
"Personally I don't drink any energy drinks because I really don't like the taste of any of them. I think that the popularization of Monster back in the 2000s really kicked off the normalization of drinking so much caffeine for younger kids, and I…"
"I think it's a little weird that they're drug testing her based on her incredible performance, but Caitlin should just take it as a compliment. I do believe Caitlin belongs in the debate of the best player right now because she is one of the best. I…"
"In my personal opinion, I think that the death penalty can be justified in very certain situations. Personally in a perfect world, the victim's family or the victim themself would choose the punishment, but I think that the death penalty could be ok…"
"Fast fashion has been a very big problem in the 21st century, and it seems to only get worse. I think it is awful the conditions these people have to work in order to make money to survive, and it's brands like Nike who use this labor and up the…"
"Urbanization has been happening since the dawn of time, and I think in general having more people living closer in vicinity in a big city is more beneficial to the environment because it allows more land to breathe. Less land will be used if humans…"
"I think giving all schools the option to offer free and reduced school lunches to families who want it is something America should do. Instead of qualifying for it, if a family thinks it would help their situation they should be able to use it, free…"
"I don't see a problem with energy-saving features like the one you've talked about. They're not annoying to me and if Apple says it helps your battery life I'll try it. Our knowledge of technology is constantly evolving so maybe it helps more than…"
"I think that vaping has gotten out of hand in general. I don't think it should be banned completely for adults, but I do think stricter measures should be put in place so young teenagers can't get their hands on them. I don't know how to go about…"
"I think the legal age to drive at 16 is the perfect age. At 16 most students are getting jobs and are going out with their friends and doing school things. Sure you can say they're doing that at 15 too, but an extra year of driving practice should…"
"Climate change can be helped with the changing of many different things, but I think that putting farmers out of work isn't exactly what anyone is wanting in order to stop it. Many of the practices farmers use actively add to climate change, so…"
"I think it is really interesting the differences between school lunches throughout different countries and regions. I think America in general has normalized processed and unhealthy foods so much to the point that the vast majority of Americans…"
"I think that banning smoking is not a very smart decision on Mexico's part. Smoking while bad for you is something you choose to do in your past time, and many people love to smoke. I think taking away smoking instead of informing the public about…"
"I think the system we have in place right now works very well. As a younger student, I really wanted to have open campus all throughout high school, but in hindsight, I'm glad I was forced to go to work time during school because it definitely…"
"I think the rules should have been implemented with the player's wants in mind. They are probably changing and making rules in order to up profits which is understandable, but MLB should have made sure they were agreeable to everyone before putting…"
"I think that games should be allowed in school. Growing up in elementary school we had iPads and we would play math games and other enrichment school related games and they were very enjoyable and entertaining. "
"I understand both ways when it comes to technology in the workforce. On one hand, technology takes away jobs, can be complicated, and can break down like any equipment, but on the other technology is very helpful and can bring production rates up a…"
"In a few classrooms, teachers offer charging stations, and I would bet that a lot of teachers wouldn't mind if students asked to charge their own phones from an unused outlet in the classroom. As long as the phone isn't hindering the class's ability…"
"I think the system we have for high schoolers and middle schoolers now is just fine. At the end of each school year, each student gets a little freedom to choose any extra classes they want to take from home education to current world issues. I have…"
"I agree with you that you aren't lesser if you offer something different than money or nothing at all. It is more effective and kind to ask before giving things that aren't money though because they could be useless to the person. But I do think you…"
"I agree with you. Always ask if they want or need help first and make sure they are comfortable with you praying for them. In general it is the most humane and kindest thing to treat each person you encounter with equal kindness and respect. "
"I understand that stereotypes could be derived from true instances but I think it's unfair to make quick assumptions about houseless people just because of the situation they are in. If the person is asking for food, definetly if you can you should…"
"I agree that money could be used for things that are more beneficial to the individual instead of just food. Food can't sanitize your hands, food can't buy you warm clothes, but money can and homeless people are the only ones who know what they need…"
When presented with the opportunity to help out someone who is homeless, what is your go-to option? Do you take out your wallet and offer what you can, or do you opt to get this person in need food? Both possibilities could potentially save lives…
"I absolutely think there should be more gun control. Those who cannot handle a gun with saftey and precaution should not be able to own them. It might be harder to get a gun with more rules, but if you can't get past simple background checks and…"
"Technology has been eliminating jobs since humans learned how to use it, it is now just becoming more advanced to the point where even customer service can be done with technology. I am personally not sure what the future holds for computers and…"
"I see nothing wrong with abortion in any instance. Ultimately it should be the woman's right to choose if she wants to continue to carry and physically support a living being for 9 months. Being pregnant is a very hard thing, and it's an even harder…"
"Just like any big organization that involves competition, there is going to be swaying of outcome. People bet their lives savings, they make these things their lives, and in turn they are willing to cheat the system to get the outcome they want. I…"
"I have heard things about Post Malone being too into drugs, and my reaction to these things is always sympathy. Drug addiction is a slippery and deadly slope, especially for entertainers of his popularity. Post Malone is a rapper and unfortunately…"
"I think it could be less popular if it wasn't so americanized because it just wouldn't be a well known dish. I think like a lot of things that get americanized pizza and alfredo are interesting and delicious dishes even if the culture has been…"
