Wow! This is an incredibly well-written article. I will admit that science is not my strong subject, but his article was extremely informative and easy to understand.

It is unfortunate that there is so much conflict in the Middle East. I hope the U.S. will find a way to balance protecting American defense interests, as well as facilitating world peace.

Rachel Catherine   10 weeks ago  on  Remembering World War I

An easy way to remember the main causes of WWI is
M.ilitarism (countries were building up their militaries)
A.lliances (many countries formed alliances, so when one country was attacked, their allies jumped in, leading to such a widespread war)
I.mperialism (countries, namely Germany, were expanding their borders and conquering other nations)
N.ationalism (the sense of nationalism, or pride in one's country contributed greatly to imperialism and militarism, worsening the war)

You are a very good writer, Vatsal. I took AP U.S. History in school this year, and you know more about this topic than some of my classmates! I can't wait to read your next article. :)

I think this ruling is an extremely wise one of the part of the Canadian Supreme Court. When the Europeans came into the "New World," they cruelly pushed Native Americans out of their land. It is sad that it has taken this long for us to realize the wrongs we did, but it is hopeful that we are trying to return what is rightfully the Native Americans. I live in New Mexico, so cases like this are really important to me.

This is a fantastic article Norbu. It was extremely informative and interesting. I look forward to seeing more of your work this summer. :)

These men are certainly some of our country's unsung heroes. The contributions they made to the war effort are remarkable, and I believe it is safe to say that we could not have won the war without them. May Mr. Nez rest in peace.

Actually, you will pick from a list of current events to write about. You will have to research the topic first.
