The Flint Water Crisis: All You Need to Know and More

luvgracie134

Seventy miles from the Great Lakes lives a small industrial town by the name of Flint, Michigan. Two years ago, the city switched the water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Because of the rivers notorious filth, the citizens took the proposal as a joke. They thought their town would never jeopardize their health and safety, but as it turns out, they were wrong. The switch was only expected to happen in order to help fix some financial problems in the district, but the problems became much bigger than anticipated. “In retrospect, I regret all of it,” the Mayor Walling said, but can regret really accommodate for the situation he has put himself in?

The history of the town doesn’t exactly help with the case either. Flint is a blue collar town that relies heavily on the auto industry. When the population decreased in the 1980’s, due to…

Immigration policy

ducttaperubikscube

Hey guys, I recently had a project to write an essay about my opinion on U.S. immigration policy and I thought I would share with you. Here it is:

There are lots of ways the United States government could approach immigration policy, but there is no perfect solution. No matter what you say someone is going to disagree with you. Although I sampled from most of the policies, mine is mainly based off of making emigration unnecessary.

First off, we need to secure our borders with more border patrol. As the immigration policy reading states, “An open immigration policy will inevitably make it easier for would-be terrorists to enter the country undetected.” With secure borders it would be much harder for people, drugs, weapons, or anything else to cross the border without us knowing about it. I’m not saying that we need to keep everything from coming in. All I’m…

Playlist Recommendations

eugeniablogs

Music is a huge part of my life, and is extremely influential on me especially since I play guitar myself. My music taste is extremely broad and I’m always open to hearing new music, although I do have some personal favorites. Here are some mood playlists I have created on my Spotify, with some adjustments and differences. These playlists include music that ranges from pop, to indie, to rock, so despite the specific theme, there is no barrier on genre. Hope you enjoy!

A Big Step For The Bugatti Name

bloggingwithsamb

bugatti-chiron-53306-2880x1800The Bugatti Chiron is not just a nice car, it’s a piece of art. Everything about the car is a step up from the last model, the Bugatti Veyron. Just the fact that it reaches 420 km is insane. The best thing to do if you want to have fun with this car is bring it to a track. There are not many places you can go that will let you go 420 km but if you aren’t going to use the car to the full potential you shouldn’t buy it, Especially because there are only going to be 500 of this particular model. But buying this car will only be an option for the filthy rich, mainly because it’s going to cost about 2.5 million. If you ask me it worth the money , mainly because it’s the fastest and pretty much the most luxurious car that is street…

Hillary and Arizona

bloggingwithchrisx

The Arizona primary was a catastrophe for democracy. Why you may ask and the answer might surprise you, it was rigged by Hillary Clinton. Now hear me out before just closing the tab, there is plenty of proof to support this statement.For example thousands of people who had voted democratic in the past suddenly found out that they were actually registered as Republican or Independent and were turned away. For example Heavy.com states that “One of the more disturbing stories came from a Redditor whose fiancee couldn’t vote. (You can read the story here.) They both registered Democrat on the same day and got their voter identification cards on the same day. They showed up to vote in Maricopa County with all the paperwork they needed. He was able to vote but his fiancee was refused a real ballot and told she was Independent. As she dropped in…

The Model S is a large luxury sedan while the newer Model X is a luxury SUV. And both are fully electric, of course. However, because the company has only released expensive luxury vehicles, they have not gotten much money because there is not a very affordable option. Most luxury…

Is Na’Vi Back?

TaeKwonDrumming

After Na’Vi’s shocking win against Team Secret in a best of 3 on March 19th, 2016, I couldn’t help but think that Na’Vi might start to make a name for itself again.

After losing their first game to Secret, it didn’t seem too bright for Na’Vi as Secret was considered better, but there was still a chance. Na’Vi put up a good fight throughout the game but after one lost Roshan pit fight, it greatly went into Secret’s favor and in the end, Na’Vi lost. The second match started of relatively even for moth teams, but Secret probably was a little more in control. Slowly, Na’Vi started to gain a lead. The had some great pick offs and managed to get some good farm in too and eventually, Na’Vi pulled of a win. With the score now 1-1, it seemed like Na’Vi had a chance to win it, but Secret…

How does ISIS get its Recruits?

caramelchocolateicecream

People wonder why so many people are coerced into believing that ISIS is a symbol of goodness and freedom.  A majority of ISIS recruits practice Islam even before ISIS brainwashes them into believing that ISIS is not evil.   One technique ISIS uses into brainwashing young teens is by using social media to express their messages and recruit videos.  In fact, social media is the one of major factors that convince young and innocent minds to join the infamous terrorist organization.  Some examples of social media that the terrorist organization uses are Twitter, Facebook, and sometimes even Instagram. ISIS’s goal is to attract as many recruits as possible.  They target young Muslim men and women and encourage them to join ISIS because it is the only place where they will be accepted for who they are.  In addition, every time ISIS successfully carries out an attack against Western forces, they show…

Is Crime or Dishonesty Ever Okay?-Les Misérables

alexisnotonfire1031

Les Misérables is a book written by Victor Hugo that is set between the years 1815 and 1832. Since the release of the book in 1862, it has been adapted into a broadway musical and a movie. But I’m not here to talk about the history of Les Mis and why you should definitely see/read it (which you should). No, I’m here to talk about one (of the many) elements of crime and dishonesty in the movie adaptation, which just so happens to be in the first few minutes as to not spoil too much of the story.

(If you would like to follow along with the music, the song is called “Look Down”.)

First off, some background. The first scene is of prisoners serving their time under the watchful eye of Inspector Javert, the main antagonist in Jean Valjean’s story. Keep in mind that this whole first scene is…
