requirements, federal tax deductions, and some other solar regulations. Government incentives for installing solar panels are changing tastes and preferences of consumer. As Energy Sage (n.d.) stated,

“The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008, also known as MHPAEA is defined as a federal law that prevents group health plans and health insurance issuers that provide mental health or substance use disorder benefits from imposing less favorable benefit limitations on those benefits than on medical or surgical benefits” (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, para 1). Originally, MHPAEA applied only to group health plans and group health insurance coverage, but was “amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” to also apply to individual health insurance coverage (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, para 2). “The Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 (MHPA) defined that large group health plans could not impose annual dollar limits on mental health benefits that are less favorable than any limits imposed on medical or surgical benefits” (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, para 6).
“Puchungi, can I watch the movie with you?” A petite five-year-old with a mop of curled golden hair, brown doe eyes, and a stuffed Mickey Mouse doll hugged tightly to her chest innocently asked, with a tilt of her head as she looked up at her big sister and cousin. The older sister and cousin shared a look before the toddler’s cousin quirked her lips in what the child would later remember being a mischievous, wicked, smirk. “Sure Puchungi.” Her cousin finally answered as she hauled the child up from the floor and on to the couch between the two older women before pressing play on the movie that would forever leave a lasting impression on the child. When I was five years old my cousin and big sister decided it would be a funny joke to let me
is the way I think I will get all my points with. We are also both caring for our families because Parvana did everything she could to try and get her father out of prison. I care about my family so much because they are the people I feel safe around at all times and I know they would never hurt me. I looked out for my mother when she was going through something so terrible. She always felt tired and pain, and I would do everything I could to make her comfortable. I still do my best today with my family even when everything is okay. Parvana did the same thing for hers because even though most of the time Parvana and Nooria her older sister always bickering with each other, still deep down they love each other so much and it would be terrible
In 1500 C.E., the Inca Empire was the biggest, wealthiest civilization in Mesoamerica. They ruled over a diverse area of mountains and rainforest, some 2,500 miles in length. It is also one of the more well known civilizations. But did you know that there was a civilization considered a predecessor to the Inca? That civilization is Tiwanaku. The tiwanaku Empire started around 300 BCE and ended in 1000 CE. They were located near the west border of Bolivia. The artifacts that they had were pillars and stone structures where they think they had ceremonies. They also had small temples and altars.
Summary of Contentious Issues The federal government should work on promoting either nuclear or solar energy. Energy is important for survival on a daily basis. In fact, the development of any nation depends on the long-term availability and increase of clean and safe energy that also supports the environment. Currently, no energy source can be said to be sufficiently capable of meeting future needs that a nation requires. It is important therefore to promote any particular type of renewable energy. Promoting and enhancing solar energy would be a better move to take. It is better for the environment if the federal government work on improving solar energy usage. Installation of solar panels by Americans continues to increase with each passing day. Despite this positive progress, this avenue of power is not fully exploited because of lack of infrastructure to store solar energy. Solar energy was ranked as the third electricity-producing source after natural gas and wind energy thus accounting for fourteen percent of the total electricity produced. This significant contribution of the solar energy shows that when properly exploited, solar energy can be a major source of electricity for the country. However, there is need for the issues surrounding its maximum exploitation to be addressed. The government should subsidize infrastructure. The most important infrastructure that the federal government should look into includes connection to the power grid, conversion of the solar
The city of Pacifica is located in the County of San Mateo in California. It enjoys a strategic location on the mighty Pacific Ocean's Coast and lies in between the Half Moon Bay and the city of San Francisco.

An undecided future, the string of switching majors, the unsureness as a whole. All this was flooding her mind at once. She was unsure of what she saw herself becoming in this world of open doors and diverse opportunities. Six years spent finding herself and what she strived for. She sat reminiscing of the years gone by as she collected the small slip of paper that was her one true piece to prove her feats.
power could replace conventional forms of power generation. According to the article Solar Power Can Help Fuel the Future by Glenn Hamer found on the Gale Opposing Viewpoint database states “The forecast for solar energy in the twenty-first century is sunny. Solar will push the trend of safe, affordable, and reliable distributed energy. As we head deeper into the new century, some predict that the electricity system may come to resemble the Internet—with disparate points and no one center of activity. In such a system, photovoltaics integrated into building roofs and windows will be a key component. Especially in the Southwest, concentrating solar power (CSP) stations will provide a significant percentage of the energy" C. Solar Power is also becoming more cost effective and in the next few years it

Solar power is one of the most environmentally benign energy sources available. Just 20 days of sunshine produces the same amount of energy as everything stored in Earth’s reserves of oil, coal, and natural gas—yet does not come close to producing the same amount of environmental damage as even one of those options (Greentips, 2005). Solar farms are a clean renewable source that can meet high energy demands and can creates thousands of jobs in the future. It is also used during peak demand for electricity. During the hottest days, the panels are absorbing more energy while homeowners have the a.c. on full blast. They can be installed anywhere
With all the talk of global warming and increasing greenhouse gases, many corporations and individuals are attempting to integrate cleaner power sources into their way of life. Power companies are erecting huge wind turbine farms in order to harvest more clean energy. Other companies are attempting to lower
