I am going to need some audience participation. Everyone take a $5, $10, or $20 dollar bill out. How many of you are willing to rip your money up? You probably wouldn’t do it and think this is crazy, but we throw money away like this in the name of our car, television, or shoes every month. Let me give you an example.
Sweaty, a protester stands enraged on a grimy battleground of ideas, a speaker spouts controversial ideas as the crowd rages forward, and voters raise their hands as they make their solemn decision. The ideal which makes these amazing situations possible is written into many Constitutions across many nations: free speech. With the advent of the internet and the patriot act, this concept is being stretched to its limits, and people on all sides are looking to the past and future for answers. Some look hard at the negatives that free speech brings while others look at it’s upsides. When speech incites violence, is it still only words? When speech is limited, where does it end? To me, all types of speech, hateful or not, should be protected, because words have the power to change thoughts, and actions have lasting consequence. Free speech is a tool for the common era, and should be taken very seriously.
I am sure that everyone of you have heard about aliens and UFOs. Indeed, we all have heard about the famous case of aliens and UFOs in Roswell, New Mexico. Most people might be interested in the topic of aliens, but I know that the majority of you just think of it as rumours and the existence of them are impossible. Therefore, I am standing here in front all of you to make you change your perspective. I am strongly confident that I have found the evidence of their real existence to convince all of you.
We’ve all seen, and pitied, that poor mom walking down the aisle holding the hand of an uncooperative toddler while using her innate mom superpower to wrangle the squirming infant in her arms.
A mother is in the hospital and she has just given birth to a handsome baby boy. However, she did not know that her little boy would be born with Tay-Sachs disease. Tay-Sachs is an inherited disease that destroys neurons in the brain and spinal cord. As the mother's child gets older, he will suffer from the loss of his ability to use his motor skills. Eventually, he will lose his hearing and vision, and could possible obtain seizures; he will probably not live past early childhood. But what if this tragedy could be stopped? What if there were a solution to all of this suffering? There is a solution, and the solution is called prenatal testing. Prenatal testing is a test that can be done on the unborn child to detect things such as birth defects
I agree with you, in the U.S. we spend too much time on preparation for testing. I did not expect to find such a high numbers, over one hundred mandated standardized test required between K-12. You mentioned in your writing about hands on testing I'm a strong supporter of that approach and have seen the benefits not only in educational institutions but also during workplace training sessions.
It was October 6, 1998 when he was lured from the bar that cold, fateful night. His skull was smashed with a pistol butt as he was lashed to a fence, left for dead in near freezing temperatures. Nearly eighteen hours later he was found by passersby and taken to a hospital where we remained in a coma for several days until slowly slipping away. At his funeral, picketers carried signs saying, "God Hates Fags" and *Fags Deserve to Die."
Have you served in a war? Has your father or mother served in a war? How about your grandpa? As we honor those who have served we typically do so by standing for the pledge of allegiance or star spangled banner. We say thank you to our war heroes or we go and visit them and listen to their stories. In this paper I will be discussing why NFL players should not be allowed to kneel for the flag. Although the NFL players have the right to peacefully protest, they should find a different way than kneeling as it shows disrespect towards the flag also active duty military and veterans, it teaches young children this behavior is okay, what they are protesting has nothing to do with the flag and there are many different ways to get their message out.
By now I’ve heard everyone’s concerns about what culminated yesterday and what is best for Savvy while managing foreseeable hurdles in the expectations placed on you by myself, Kelley and DCS. After sleeping (a little), I’ve given all of my thought to what is the best for Savannah now and near term, and it entails a slight adjustment of how things were left yesterday.

Dean, Janice and I are trying to start millennium testing for some of the objects in envr 1776 yesterday. However, we discovered we barely have data to continue this testing. Dan promised he could help us get ‘good’ data into that envr so we can continue our testing. Before we go down this path, we wanted to run it by the whole team to check if this is going to be a good move. Does anyone has any immediate or potential concerns?
