Revisiting Call of Duty.

April 2, 2014

Comments Off on Revisiting Call of Duty.

Revisiting the Call of Duty series was nothing short of refreshing. Having grown out of the online first person shooter in high school (for many reasons, I realized in retrospect), playing this game with a more critical and analytical lens was extremely interesting. After roughly a six year hiatus from the first person shooter format, […]

Shocked by Lower

Comments Off on Shocked by Lower

In section, we read an article that described the actions of Nazi women in another article by Lower. The rest of the class seemed to be surprised, but I was in awe at how shocking the actions were. Here’s why.   In the assigned Bock reading, Bock showed that the women suffered horribly from the […]

Equality Confusion

Comments Off on Equality Confusion

There is something on my mind that needs to be either corrected or justified or explained or all of the above. So starting in 1776 in the United States, there were whites and then there we slaves and perhaps occasionally, a free person of color. The racism at that point did not even have a […]

Maruecos

Comments Off on Maruecos

So I took my first of many trips this past weekend, and it happened to be probably one of the most intricate trips of them all since I traveled all the way to a new continent…AFRICA! Morocco is so close to Sevilla, just a 21/2 hour drive and 45 minute ferry ride away, so it’s definitely a […]

Ridiculousness of 48

Comments Off on Ridiculousness of 48

As I was catching up with the assigned reading, I glanced through the Constitution of the Weimar Republic. Article by article I observed the similarities between that constitution and the one we are so familiar with here in the United States of America. After around 15 articles it became tedious; I continued reading for the […]

I have always enjoyed science-fiction, so when I was introduced to Star Trek, I fell in love with it instantly. The clip above is from my favorite Star Trek film, Star Trek: First Contact. In this film, the crew of the USS Enterprise, led by Jean-Luc Picard, travel back in time to the 21st Century to prevent […]

Syria: Minority Rules

Comments Off on Syria: Minority Rules

The story sounds all too familiar. An oppressive Arab regime is losing its influence, and the citizens start yearning for freedom and equality as they begin to revolt. World Leaders support the revolution and spend weeks debating whether to step in or not as thousands die, mostly civilians. The current government stands that it has […]

“Why Space Matters”

I’ve always had a great fascination with the universe and everything that we’ve been able to discover outside of Earth. I love learning about things that are so much larger than us, dealing with issues such as the creation of space and time and how everything came to be, and trying to comprehend the mind-boggling […]

Is Society Valuable?

December 15, 2011

Comments Off on Is Society Valuable?

Throughout the semester, we have looked at theorists who have all espoused the view that society is a worthwhile and necessary thing. This is partially out of pragmatism, as returning to the hunter-gatherer days is not a simple alternative to political systems with the population size being what it is today (and was even back […]

Kids in our Community

The effects of violence on a teenager, and the connection between foster care and juveniles are real. I believe that violence is a strong risk factor that may lead a young person to delinquency. Most of the delinquents come from some form of abuse. If a child or teen is getting abused, they will want […]
