Women's Rights

Ameneh Bahrami's face was burnt off, blinding her forever, when Majid Mohavedi poured a bucket of acid on her after she declined his marriage proposal in 2004. For 7 years she had been seeking a qisa, available in Iran through Sharia Law, which would allow her have the same damage inflicted upon him for what he had done to her---"an eye for an eye," etc. As this case gained international attention in the past 7 years, Mohavedi's fate was postponed in April of 2009, and was due to be carried out...

The SA-X is the most panic-inducing video game enemy from a non-horror franchise.

GThomas
van114

I firmly believe that the X parasite mimicking Samus Aran, the SA-X, from Metroid Fusion on the Nintendo Gameboy Advance, is the number one most frightening and panic-causing enemy from a non-horror game series.Reasons1) It constantly hunts you throughout the game, fully equipped with all of your Power Suit's abilities, while you have to run around the space station, almost powerless.2) Since you have Metroid DNA, you are very weak to col...

In canada, the impact of international buisness had many positive benefits

McNichol
spenserririe

Canada benefits from importing and exporting goods and services because of the fact that you receive the best quality and quantity of products at the lowest possible price. Not only do you receive the best product but through certain imports and exports you receive technological developments. Through these certain benefits, with the large amount of international business that takes place with Canada, importing and exporting goods creates jobs for citizens that in the end help progress and develo...

Junk food in school

Switzerland
freedomsquared

Though it's a far, desperate reach to get rid of junk food availability for children outside parental supervision I believe it's imperative that we try. It's said junk food/processed food has common neurobiological effects on the brain as a hard drug like heroin or cocaine would have, making you feel you need it when you don't. With that being said is it not immoral to provide an addiction that young minds couldn't understand or overcome untill later age or maybe never? I think the young generat...

There is a conflict of interest when dentists advise on tooth care.

HalakMushareff

ATTENTION: -=This debate is intended for aphistis from StudentDoctor.net I would politely ask no one else to accept this for at least a month, thank you.=- While obviously an expert in a given subject is more likely to be qualified to speak on issues relating to that subject, there still exists a clear conflict of interest when those experts fiscally profit off of situations that could arise from faulty or missing advise on that subject. Dentists being a clear example. That this confl...

children need to be taught to be more tolerant at school

Iluvgrapefruit
McBain

In many schools, children bully others for things that are ridiculously sexist or intolerant. for example many boys at schools tease other boys for listening to the "wrong music" ie: female vocals and for watching "girl movies". It's ridiculous and completely biased. Children are almost forced to become their stereotypical gender role.For example; say a boy watches ugly betty, he is instantly an outcast. Another thing, homophobia is common in schools. The derogative term "gay" is sometimes us...

If we can't enact lobbying reform let's at least let consumer groups hold public office

InfraRedEd
Flare_Corran

This one is so easy I would have to try hard to lose it. Someday people will study the Age of Corruption when individuals could be elected to public office and accept bribes at will, and this being common knowledge and nothing being done about it. Corporations act as people, and have all the rights people have, except holding public office, which in fact it may be possible under current law if a corporation can meet age and residency requirements in order to to register to vote. Those junk...
