Hi! Ako nga pala si! Ay wag nalang pala, kahit naman sabihin ko ang pangalan ko wala ka din naman sigurong pakialam hindi naman kasi ako sikat, hindi naman ako yung crush mo, or hindi din naman ako ganun kaimportante sa buhay mo. Pero sa puntong binabasa mo to sana maaliw ka kahit paano, sana maintindihan mo kung ano yung gusto kong sabihin, or sana hindi naman malayong mangyari na makarelate ka. Hehe! Dedescribe ko nalang siguro sarili para naman kahit paano may idea ka sakin. Actually alam kong boring akong tao, siguro pinipilit ko lang makisama sa ibang tao sa araw-araw pero alam kong kapag kasama nila ako ehh nabobored sila. Assuming ika nga. Hindi naman ako tahimik na tao pero hindi din ako ganun sobrang kaingay, tama lang siguro depende sa mood pero mas napapansin ko na mas madalas...

Dear Nikki Haley We are a group of high school students trying to spread awareness of the dangers of arsenic poisoning. Arsenic is found in places that one might think of more typically, such as rat poisons and wood finishing substances, but where is is truly a problem is in developing countries where it enters into rice crops. The arsenic found in day-to-day products makes its way into rivers, groundwater, and the general water supply of countries. It can also contaminate the soil in which crops are grown. In America, there is sufficient funds to provide for filtering methods, which remove chemicals such as arsenic through the process of osmosis. However, not all countries and cities can afford such methods, and so levels of arsenic in water supplies in these places can be much...

“History is the sum total of things that could have been avoided”. These words of Konrad Adenauer, a founding father of the European Union, are especially pertinent today. For the last four years the European Union has been wrangling over the definition of endocrine disruptors, thereby blocking the application of long-standing European legislation on these chemicals, including the Pesticides (Plant Protection Product) and Biocides regulations, designed to limit their health and environmental impacts. However, as early as 2002 the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed a definition of endocrine disruptors. Here we call on the EU's Environment, Health and Agriculture Ministers and on the Health Commissioner to heed the scientific community not to attempt bending scientific definitions for...

In October 2016, our house was one of thousands jeopardized by a massive forest fire in the Appalachian mountains, near to the scenic Western North Carolina town of Chimney Rock. The fire, small at first, gradually grew, acre by acre till it had roared through approx 7000 acres of woodland. 13 other wildfires in the region brought the quantity of burning forest to around 30,000 acres. Normally the tree covered mountains of the region are cool and lush, a palette of glorious color during the later part of the year however 2016 saw a severe drought, one of the driest years on record since the Palmer Drought Index began in 1895. Lack of rain over the course of several months resulted in a tinder dry landscape that could be ignited by the smallest spark. As neighbors aided each other in...

So I’m in British lit my senior year and we got books that we had to read. I didn’t want to read nor force to read a book but it’s for a grade so I had to. We got to choose and I knew a little about this book so I picked 1984. What caught my attention in chapter one was “Winston talks about Big Brother and how he is watching over everyone as like the government in a way to spy on the people.” In the middle of the book Winston describe how it’s weird that his communication with O’Brien only happen through notes and it was strange to him on how these notes were in the same place where Winston also found his journal. At the end Winston finds out every suspension he had was true, that O’Brien is in fact part of a way of the government to spy on him and join big brother. I in...

Open Letter to the Public, the Media, and Publishers Immutable Laws of Physics Forecast the Long-lasting Warming of Earth Before 1750, annual, global temperatures on Earth changed little over very long times. Annual energy flows from our Sun and outgoing heat flows from Planet Earth into Outer Space were in nearly perfect equilibrium. The Industrial Revolution of the past two centuries has disturbed this terrestrial life creating and sustaining balance. However, it produced unprecedented wealth and a huge increase of worldwide populations. It also began a seemingly unstoppable warming trend, which is growing steadily and which is threatening the existence of all life on Planet Earth. Global warming and resulting climate change are existential threats, which must be reversed...

What if an individual bumped into another individual? The substantial subject here is the reason behind such an action. In the same light some exceptions to such to such a situation. Moreover the possible scientific reason. In the same manner there is some exceptional cases for such a situation. Primarily the situation of an individual bumping into another individual is merely on mild inconvenience. Mild because it is not on purpose. Mild due to it being a simple situation. Mild for the sole reason of not resulting in anything serious of hazardous environmental elements. Furthermore such an action might result in slight discomfort, however it is not acted upon intentionally. In addition the environment is an objective based academic environment. Which results in the situation of...

Dear Councils of Great Britain If I may be so bold your policy on household recycling is pants. You are wasting money on a spectacular level paying people to sort through, well, people's shoddy recycling, most likely including their own. So why are people not recycling correctly? Because they are confused. That includes me. Apparently I can recycle a yoghurt pot but cannot recycle plastic contaminated by food. But if I wash my plastic pot contaminated by yoghurt, will it be good to go? Or because it's a yoghurt pot it can go anyway? Indeed I could go on. It is at best naive, and at worst stupid to think that one can educate the masses - about anything. It's impossible. Recycling is no exception and current guidelines are complicated and very easy to get wrong. A rushed parent,...

I'm really unhappy with the spin you and others are putting on the bears. In your recent article in the Orlando Sentinel, you did not even expose that you are the executive director of FWC. I know there are a lot of people who do not keep up with the issues with the bears and only know what they see on tv and read in newspapers. You were remiss in stating that irresponsible people continue to be the number one problem with bears. Instead you opted to make it look like bears are attacking people with wild abandon. Just as Marion Hammer with the NRA did when she said that the bears are "terrorizing neighborhoods!" This kind of misinformation is downright lying and creating exactly what you are aiming for. Justification for another hunt. It sickens me. I'm sure I can find...
