Never be afraid and always push yourself

Today my political science professor was discussing how the school funding works and the education of students in Texas and in the U.S. What interested me is that he said that the GT, Pre-AP, and such programs are reached out to a limited amount of students and leaving others out. That the state is categorizing students as the ones that are gifted and those who are normal students leaving the normal ones out. Some teachers according to his interviews with students expect so little from them and… Continue

Mexico is getting worst everyday!

Recently my uncle was hit by a truck from the back close by a police department in chihuahua. The three guys in the truck got out and blamed everything to my uncle and he was there in his car unable to move because he injured his back and neck. No one did nothing , no one helped him and just allowed the three Cheros to yell at him and tell him he is an old useless man. One cop got there and blamed everything to my uncle for the accident and let the other guys go afraid that they will do… Continue

The holidays with the Anchondos

For Christmas my family reunited together at our house since my mom makes the most delicious food ever. We enjoyed tamales rojos (red) and de dulce ( the raisin sweet flavor), ham and menudo. I received what i wanted and more. For new years my mother had a new good luck routine. We had to write down our wishes in a paper fold it and put it inside a balloon. When the time almost hit 12 we blew up our balloons and went outside to release them onto the sky. What my mother forgot was that they did… Continue

Native American wolf pack in New Moon!!

Before anything else I have to say that the new Twilight movie was amazing. I actually believe it was better than the first one with more feeling and excitement into it. Maybe I have not read the books and missing out a lot of key points but I get impatient reading so I want to see the stuff right away. Next time Ill try reading the book and then watch the movie. Well either way I not only like Taylor Lautner but the entire wolf pack. I did some digging and the Native American wolf pack has… Continue

The killings are destroying our friends.

Today for my speech class we had to do a position speech.I sat their in my seat and listen to the students one by one talk about certain issues they favor. Some did not know what to talk about because they had no idea that there was an assignment for today, others just crashed and burned. There was one student that really opened my eyes and made me realize how bad Juarez has gotten. His position speech is that the police force in Juarez are incompetent and do not do anything to lessen the… Continue

Hey chicas do you think that China will become our next superpower?

In my opinion i believe that China will become our next superpower if the U.S. is not careful. First of all with the continued economic growth the U.S. should start to fear the lost of power. According to an issue by The China Construction Bank, China's economic growth is to exceed 10% in the fourth quarter. If this continues China's GDP is to reach that of U.S. in 15-20 years, which is pretty fast since it takes the same time for Korea to reach only 1/4 of GDP of the U.S. The New York Times… Continue

Euthanasia How far is too far?!

I was recently reading about euthanasia and its horrible that this medical procedure has the option to take away lives for those that desire it. Its like having the right to commit suicide and kill those that are in pain. The pros about this "peaceful killer" is that it is a way to relieves extreme pain, the relief of the person's quality is low, frees up medical funds to help other people and it is another case of freedom of choice. The cons are that euthanasia devalues human life, health care… Continue
