Explain the influence different religious groups in the same society have on one another.

Explain the influence different religious groups in the same society have on one another. Religion and civilization are always changing and adapting to be apart of on another otherwise one of the two would have gone to war with the other a long time ago. They are always molding and changing each other the same way that they change themswlfs they will always be apart of the other.

Socratic Seminar Reflection

Socratic Seminar Reflection 1. Share 2 to 3 main ideas you are taking away from the seminar. I think the idea that the government is encouraging people to convert to Buddhism to make people less selfish and to repair the forests are the two main ideas I took away from this seminar. 2. What was the most interesting idea you heard in the seminar? The fact that people that talked about any god regardless of which religion were called out and beaten. 3. With what idea did you most disagree? Explain. None really they were all good ideas, there were not any ideas i flat out disagreed with. 4. Assess your own participation ... How did you contribute to the discussion? What would you do differently next time you are in seminar? I would think about better questions and more of them so that I could participate more in the seminar and share my ideas with others.

Should Europeans have to pay reparations to decendants of African slaves in The Caribbean

Should Europeans have to pay for reparations to desendants of slaves in the Caribbean?
A straight forward question but needs alot of thought. Even though slavery happened a long time ago the effects are still felt in countries in The Caribbean like Jamaica, but they want money for better houses and a better government. Some people might think that they would use it for drugs and other bad things but with supervision and the money given to the right people they could benefit the country greatly.
My bottom line is that freedom can buy you a house but you have to work the same way for the things you want, freedom wont build you a house and make you food.

Acid Rain Information

What is the environmental issue?

One of the worst world wide issues is acid rain, some may argue that it is not a world wide issue but considering how many places it affects it is deffinetly a world wide problem.  The term Acid rain was invented in 1852 by an english chemist named Robert Angus, since then acid rain has been a popular debate between scientists and policy makers.

Causes

Some of the causes of acid rain are the burning of coal, oil and other fossil fuels such as those.
The primary cause is sulfur dioxide mostly from Europe and  the U.S. this comes from cars, power plants and other this as seen in the picture below.


Effects

One of the major effects of acid rain is the pollution of water and the fact that it ruins plant nutrients. This is bad for the ecosystem and humans. This means that in the future if none does anything about it it will get bad enough that none has any fresh drinking water.


Solutions

Acid rain is a major problem but it can be avoided in the future by having power plants use coal with less sulfur and using safer and healthier ways of transportation. I say it again this is a major issue but if we work together we can stop it.
