Newspapers are facing increased pressure to cut down on staff to minimize costs, and a new report by Pew Research Center shows exactly who is being hit the hardest. Photographers, artists and videographers have experienced a 43 percent decrease in jobs since 2000, dropping from 6,171 to only 3,493 jobs in 2012 -- the largest difference faced by newspaper staffers, according to the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE).

Hello everyone, I have a really good debate challenge oppurtunity for you :). I have been reading that the predominatly Christian Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarwak have warned they might secede if Malaysia implements Hudud (Malaysian version of Shariah law) across it's states. In other words, if a harsh new set of laws is implemented, these 2 states will leave Malaysia and become 2 seperate independent nations. They have their own flag, governemnt, and generally, a set of laws. I would l...

The Baltimore police are responsible for the death of Freddie Grey.

I want to make clear that I do not think this is an issue of race -- this is an issue of police brutality and unethical police conduct and treatment. With that said, I believe the Baltimore police are responsible for the untimely death of Freddie Grey. While there are still many unknown facts about the death itself, what is certain is that he had a cervical spine injury prior to his arrest. But the severing of the spine was caused while he was in the van heading to the police station. A lack...

Baltimore's action are speaking louder than their words .

In this debate , I am saying that the Baltimore "Protest" is out of control . The people are claiming that they are doing what they're doing for Freddie Gray , knowing that they aren't , the death of this man is no excuse for what they're doing , and I'm sure that most people would agree . So in conclusion of this round I'm saying that just because a black man died , doesn't give people of Baltimore Maryland to act the way they are acting ....

Also, Nicole Brown Simpsons sister saw OJ push them against a wall. He was proven innocent but then robbed a store and was arrested. He was proven Guilty and Innocent but he is a murderer....

Today's debate challenge from me to you focuses on the Ukraine crisis and specifcally one area. Are the Dontesk and Luhansk People's Republics in the east of Ukraine indepedent soverign nations? Or are they Russian puppet states in this conflict? Collectivley, these 2 nations govern themselves, have their own laws and citizens and flags. They call themselves as a confederacy: The Federal State of Novorossia (New Russia). Is it possible that they are in fact true soverign states? I believe t...
