Are All Beings Really Created Equal Everyone has been to a circus, zoo, or some kind of animal show and enjoyed it. But what those people didn"t realize is just how much those beings are suffering. Animals are being tortured, forced to please the people, and have lost their individual rights as living animals. Using animals for the entertainment or gaming for the public people should be illegal because it is cruel and causes animals to suffer. Animals in the zoo lead boring, trapped lives...

Child Beauty Pageants

Baby Beauty Queens Spray tans, bump its, bronzer, and false eyelashes. All of these "beauty techniques" are things that, for most people, were not introduced until later in their teenage years. One might see this look on a famous lady on the cover of a magazine. But on a six-year-old girl? How absurd. Unfortunately, girls entered in pageants nowadays grow up thinking that being pretty is the main way to succeed in life. In recent years, a spotlight has been shone onto a controversial even...

The Indian cricket team, in my view, are always struggling when touring away from home. They don't seem to have the confidence on foreign pitches, but if they are to ever dominate world cricket they really need to find a way to sort out this problem....

Before every Florida State football game, there is a pre-game ritual. A horse rider, wearing a Native American costume, rides his horse to the center of Doak Campbell Stadium. The horse"s front legs raise and the rider thrusts a flaming spear into the ground. To some, this is an offensive and racist act. To others, this is a tradition that honors the Native Americans. Schools and professional organizations should not ban Native American team names or mascots. Team names show honor and respec...

Should students do their homework?

I feel like we should have homework in every class, " [homework] would allow you to learn more and it is just a better chance to understand things and take advantage of it," (Chute). Homework helps improve academic performance because it allows students to learn new skills, it is beneficial, and finally, it is influential. Students can learn many things from doing our homework, as well as improve on their skills. In this essay, it will talk about all of the pleasures of doing homework. First,...

There was more accomplished in the 1800's than in the 1900's.

First round is not for acceptance. In the context of this debate, accomplishments will mean notable achievements humanity has completed. Ex. Inventions, discoveries, etc. Note: This debate is not about the number of inventions created, it is about how much humanity has progressed in the 19th and 20th centuries....

The death penalty should expand to cover some non-murder crimes at the state level.

sbramlitt
bharris15

Murder is not the only offense that is "serious" enough to be punishable by death. For example, criminals who have raped several people, or child molesters, kidnappers, etc. Just because the victim didn't die during the offense, doesn't mean they don't have emotional and physical scars, which in result makes them wish that they were (dead). Lots of crimes other than murder deeply affect the victim and their lives in the future, and therefore should be punished more seriously then they are today....

Make Abortion Illegal

Put a Stop To Killing Off The Future In a study about three decades ago, "doctors were convinced that newborns" nervous systems were too immature to sense pain"" but that is not the case. Studies showed that babies can feel the pain (Paul). If doctors are making painful decisions like this one, what else could they be doing wrong? This is why all types of abortion should become illegal in Iowa because they put babies through pain, put mothers at risk, and abortions are taken advantage of. Babi...
