Probably They Will Assuming that schooling is eventually returned to private enterprise (or a movement in the government for large spending cuts arises), then it is very likely that schools will become digitized. In fact, we are already seeing this to some extent with private and public colleges. Students can take online courses, interact with their teachers via webcam, and other things like this. Not only would such a system be more efficient, it would also be much cheaper. I'm actually a bit surprised that this is not more widespread a phenomena then is the case.
Yes, Actually Quite a Bit. Many of the major media outlets (including a few feigned "conservative" groups), has shown themselves to be very sexist in their bent, as far as it relates to journalism. This includes making men out to be greedy, ignorant, selfish buffoons. While there are some legitimate cases in which such a portrayal is upright, the general bent towards such a position is not a good example of Professional Journalism, nor is it an appropriate way to treat men. I suggest that the media groups start treating men and women equally by admitting they both have their own separate strengths and weaknesses, and then coming up with solutions for how both sexes can be aids to the other, rather than barriers. Only then will media start being a solution and stop being a part of the problem.
I vote bad. While it is a bit strong to say that a world government is "bad" per se, I could well argue that one would be ill-advised. Mainly because with a world government, power is centered in the capital of the government so to speak. And those within the capital making important decisions are going to be less knowledgeable about what they are doing. After all, being mere mortals they cannot know whether a law they pass might work fine in one area, but terribly in another. Why? Because of local customs, things that are unique to a given community, things that set it apart in ways that are special and reflect the values and culture of its many inhabitants which make up the community at large.
One might argue that those in power could have representatives from the various communities, those who are familiar with their local values and traditions meet in such a world government. But would that really be successful? To look for an example of why such a system would be largely faulty one needs to look no further than the U.S. Congress. Do Congressmen look out for the needs and values of their own communities first and foremost? Occasionally, yes, but the far more common case is that of the corrupt politician making deals in an attempt to line his own pockets, not to mention those of his family, friends, and "business associates".
But why would this be less of a problem with regional governments? Well, for politicians far away from home, there is an added since of security to their work. While they might occasionally get a threatening letter, few, if any, people will take the time and expense to travel the long distance to the capital in an attempt to make their voice heard loud and clear. Especially not those who are not "interested" in politics.
But at a regional level, a different story unfolds. What was once an inconvenient trip that you can't take time out of your busy schedule for now becomes a short distance to the next town over. What was once boring political talk by television hosts becomes juicy gossip, spread by family members, close neighbors, and of course, the town "lunatic".
I ask you straight: which scenario will provide greater accountability and standards that must be followed by political leaders?
You are probably safe if you don't live in Chicago. It is a terrible thing when so many people die as a result of these shootings. But look where they are most common. The state of Illinois bans all private citizens from owning handguns. No exceptions. When no one but the criminals have guns, it is very difficult to defend yourself. In the South, where I live, less people die in shootings because ironically, more people have guns, and consequently, they are more seldom used. You remember the July 16 attack in Chattanooga? There was a reason only five people died. Someone had a private gun in a gun free zone. Get rid of Illinois (and Chicago) gun restrictions, watch the homicide rates drop.
Yes they should. I was near Chattanooga when that terrible accident in the picture above happened. More than half a dozen children were killed. Needless to say, the county is headed for a lawsuit. Children should at least have the option of being buckled in their seats as that would help prevent such a high number of deaths like those in these types of situations.
I am excited. I am very happy about Donald Trump becoming the president of the USA. I am also happy to see that he has already assigned various cabinet seats, many of which have gone to respectable, wide right people. It will be a day to celebrate when he takes office. Here's hoping he does a much better job than the last four administrations, a task which I doubt will be much of a challenge, especially for him.
No, Jail is Not the Answer. Hillary Clinton has taken part in many criminal acts, partially because she has shown a talent for pulling it off with little legal consequence, and partly because she has a self-centered bent. She has used the power of government to serve her own needs, and has weakened the country as a whole as a result. I therefore propose, as an alternative to Jail, that she be tried and, if found guilty, receive the death penalty. That would be justice for her crimes, and serve as a grim reminder of the consequences of using the power of government for your own personal needs rather than for the good of the populace as a whole.
Street Smarts are better. Book knowledge is a very valuable thing, especially if you wish to fit in well with society at large. But at the same time, it can be seen as a luxury. For survival in any environment, street smarts are necessary to give you an optimal chance at survival. No matter if you are in the middle of a forest or in the middle of Los Angeles. You to know the best ways to get food, shelter, water, protect yourself from unsavory characters (bears, human-counterparts on the street, etc.). Plus, if you want to get everything you want efficiently (most output for the least input) street smarts usually contain such knowledge; how to work the "systems" and whatnot. For these reasons, I vote street smarts.
No, they shouldn't. I don't know what kind of computer you're specifically wanting to get, but in your own answer you haven't really given any good reasons for why you want one. I mean, you said you needed on to do homework and work on your YouTube channel. Why don't you buy one with your own money, why use their's? It isn't like they owe you a computer or anything. While it might be very nice of them to buy you one, if you need one for your various projects, don't hassle them with it, buy it yourself with your own money.
It is true Yes, perfection in caffeinated beverages does not currently exist, to my knowledge. While there may be cups of coffee that are as close to perfection as is mortally possible, it would be a far stretch indeed to say they are perfect. But I don't really even care for coffee that much anyway, so...
