We love Kid President! He says some pretty amazing, touching, and powerful things. For example, “We can make everyday better for each other.” There are some terrible things going on in the world and it makes us wonder if we all just did one little nice thing for someone, then maybe our world would be a little better for everyone. How will you make today better for someone? What do you think about Kid President?

A lot of people eat fast food but fast food isn’t such a good deal. It is very bad so people should eat less of it. First, it is very fattening and if you eat it too much you can get really fat. Also, it has bad stuff in it that sometimes makes you sick and I bet you do not want to be sick…I don’t. Last but not least, it is very cheap and but cheap stuff mostly has bad stuff in it. Parents like that some food is cheap but, it is still bad for you. Did you know that if you eat too much of the bad stuff that is in Fast Food you can get cancer.

  A lot of fast food taste good but that is because there is so many bad things in it like salt and sugar and other bad stuff. If you live in San Diego then you should be lucky because there is not as much fast food than other places in the world like Mexico.

Do you know how much calories are in a Big Mac at McDonald? There are 540 calories! That’s a lot of calories in just one meal.

Fast Food is cheap and most of the time cheap food is bad for you, but some people don’t have a lot of money so they eat fast food a lot of fast food. I sometimes have fast food because my parents don’t get their check for work till Friday and Wednesday. Next time you eat fast food maybe you’ll think about whether it’s really a good deal or not.

Lots of kids like to play board games like Monopoly, Sorry, Ticket To Ride, Catan, and Clue. Board games can do great things to your brain. Board games can help your thinking, intelligence, and strategy. Read this essay for us to play more board games.

If you ever have trouble in school, board games can improve that. The board game Clue was actually used by a teacher and his kids played it in class for logic and guessing. Other board games also help with critical thinking logic. It helps math if it has anything to do with numbers. Games like Scrabble and other word games help you with word study and other word activities.

Board games help you with manners too! Board games where you have to work together to get your goal helps you have manners to stay confident with others. “Games that are competitive help you not get angry if you don’t get something you want,” says Prezi. “You can play a board game to calm you down if you have a lot of energy.”

Last but not least, they help you with daily things, like understanding things. They help you plan ahead If something doesn’t go too smooth for you.  You might not get what you want.Games like Catan and Ticket to Ride help you with strategy, so you can figure out confusing things faster and better.
Now, with all these details about how the board games give you manners and make you smart, I hope you agree with me of how these games actually make you smarter and more civilized. You get calmer, more smarter, and be able to solve problems better and quicker than you did before. I know some people will say that they are very boring, so you should not play them. I think that is a bunch of bologna, but some people might disagree with me. They’re great, So it’s a real benefit if you play board games.

Don’t Overuse Your Electronics

SO many people aren’t being very social because they spend all their time on tablets or phones, and don’t look up and never will talk to anyone. I think it’s unhealthy and bad because it can cause a large decrease in your social life.  If you don’t want to be taken over by the grip of addicting electronics, you should read this article to not be able to stop playing electronics.

Also, did you know that your brain can be split into two if  you don’t stop playing electronics. Your brain can also be TAKEN AWAY BY ALIENS AND BE PUT INTO A JAR! Just kidding. But if you’d really like to put your brain in a jar, you can, although it would hurt.

And did you know that if you stop playing on electronics, you and your life will be a lot less stressful. It’s true, you can become a lot less stressful because a lot of the games on phones, tablets, computers, or Ipads cost a lot of stress. They can be timed, and can stress you out.

Another downside of electronics is if you’re a young little kid, let us say you’re four. Your older brother also uses the phone and plays violent games on it. One day you get ahold of the phone and you accidently press on one of the most violent games he has. You become really scared because it has a lot of blood and violence, and you run to tell your mom. My point is, a lot of the games in the world are too violent for kids, and are being played too much and some kids are even starting to play real life GAMES related to them.

Another reason  electronics aren’t good is because a lot of kids and teens are becoming obsessed with electronics and won’t stop and that can be bad because as I said before, it can make your brain split into two halves and can cause a lot of damage and I know you wouldn’t want that, right?

In conclusion, I think kids and teens should use Tablets, Phones, Ipads, and Computers a lot less, or even completely stop using them because it maybe  might be one of the biggest problems we have if you think about it.

Thousands of kids are getting hover boards then find there are deadly effects. What is a hoverboard? The hoverboard is a device that is controlled by human movement and uses a lithium battery that can easily explode and kill you so hoverboards should be banned for these reasons. They,re blowing up, there a fire hazard and you could go to the hospital.

Hover boards are blowing because the lithium battery will react if you don’t turn off the hover board. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, there have now been 12 incidents in the United States where the lithium ion batteries in these hover boards reportedly blew up  destroying bedrooms and even entire homes.

Fires have started in all sorts of different circumstances, too. According to owners and witnesses, some of the hoverboards exploded while charging, others while riding  and one while it was simply sitting near a kiosk in a Washington shopping mall. There have been several other hoverboard fires reported in the UK, and at least one in Hong Kong.

People are falling for their new hoverboards – literally.Hoverboards have become one of this season’s hottest gifts, but safety concerns surrounding the popular two-wheeled motorized skateboards are putting a damper on some customers’ holidays.”We’ve seen a lot of falls over the holidays,” U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission spokesperson Patty Davis tells us “We’ve seen at least 39 emergency room treated injuries associated with hoverboards: concussions, fractures, contusions, abrasions.”

On the other side there fun to ride and play on. Thousands of kids are getting hoverboards then find there are deadly effects like the hoverboard blowing up or catching on fire and having to go to the hospital because of an injury with a hoverboard.

Lots of people are thinking dones are fun so they want to buy drones but we need to get them under control. Thieves can use drones to spy on other people. Drones are very expensive. Drones are also taking over jobs that people do.

How would you like it if someone broke into your house? Well now they can with drones. Right now a drone could be spying on you and in a matter of minutes someone can break into your house.

Some drones can cost up to $150, $290, or even over $1,000. who would want a toy that would waste all of your allowance. Sometimes a drone will cost a lot of money but will break down, and will waste your money.   

Drones are taking over things that we do which is not a good idea because it will make people lazy and not wanting to do their job(s). Kids are going to soon have drones doing their homework, which will increase kids lack of smarts.

To some people a drone can be very disturbing, but to most people think drones are fun and good to play with. For drones there are more bad reasons than good, that is why we should ban DRONES from California.

Doomed Drones

What is a drone? A drone is an aircraft that can navigate autonomously, without human control soas they will take people’s jobs, invade privacy , and they don’t carry much or go to far also they are dangerous

Drones shouldn’t be for delivery because it can be dangerous to planes.In the spring of 2014 a 375lbs drone that was flew by the Pennsylvania Army National Guard crashed outside of a elemantry school in near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, school was out so no body was hurt.

Drones invade people’s privacy.There was a lady sunbathing topless in the privacy of her secluded backyard near Melbourne, Australia and a drone, hired by a real estate agent to take photos of the property next door to her house was, and making a buzzing sound. Later she was horrified to discover a picture the drone had taken, showing her mostly naked body was in billboard real estate ads.

Drones don’t carry a lot and only so go far.drones can only carry up to 5lbs, that’s only 86% of Amazon’s deliveries. A test shows that it can will only go 10 miles said Bezos. Their lithium batteries can only last 2 to 3 year, also their  batteries can explode and blow up your package and the drone.

If we have drones people will be losing their jobs because the drone will deliver your packages not the mailman, Over 500,000 drones have been sold.There are many people that have jobs caring packages where will they go , WHERE WILL THEY GO!

On the other side they can be handy, fast, and can fly and that means it can beat traffic.Thousands of drones are taking over the skies and need to be contained so drones so not be for delivery. They will take people’s jobs, invalid private , and they don’t carry much or go to far.

Redskins’ Name Bad or Good?

Robert Griffin III (RG3) Brook Ward via Compfightby  Jeremy

The Washington Redskins should change their name and logo because it’s very offensive to the American Indians. However some people think they should keep their name because they’ve had the name since the beginning of time. Three reasons why the redskins should change their name are people dress inappropriately, they hold weapons, and the mascot looks like a cartoon character.

The first reason is people dress up and wear war paint and hold tomahawks making natives seem violent. It also makes them seem like they are bad people when they’re really not. Natives only use weapons when they’re hunting or stuff like that.

The second reason is it is offensive and racist. It is offensive because not all natives wear headdresses but all fans wear them and when natives wear headdresses they wear them showing honor. When fans wear them they just wear them for fun.

The third reason is the native mascot looks like a cartoon. This is pretty offensive because natives are nothing like a cartoon. The logo has a huge head and the logo in 1951 looks nothing like a Native American. Also, if a native saw the team’s flag with the logo he or she would probably be really offended.

I think the Redskins should change their name because it’s rude to any native American because no one would call a native a redskin right in their face. However some people think they should keep the name because a lot of people just say there’s nothing wrong with the name but I don’t think that’s true because a native shouldn’t ever be called a redskin.

"I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework." - Author Unknown

Did you have a day where you had too much homework, you finished one pile, and you still had more piles left? Well did you know that all that hard work and stress is for nothing! Homework should be banned, kids across the U.S. get too much homework and banning homework is a good idea. Homework is not necessary, because it’s too stressful, not needed, and it takes to long to do.

 

There’s no need to do the same thing you did in class. It doesn’t help you learn, doing the same thing is not interesting for the student.

Homework is too stressful for the student. It’s not just the student but also the adult! For example, what if your mom planned a really cool place that you want to go to, but you have six more packets, then you get stressed and refused to do it and two more minutes your mom get stressed and she cancels it.   

It takes too long to get homework done. It takes so long to finish and you can’t do fun stuff or family time. or maybe you want to go to a friends house but it takes to long and they cancel it. Most people like homework  but  at least limit the amount you have. Homework should be banned!

School Uniforms Good or Bad?

School uniforms can look super cute!

Do you want to wear uniforms or have you? Do you like uniforms? What is a uniform? An uniform is an outfit worn by people that are members of an organization that all look the same. And I’m sure after you read this you’ll want uniform. Students are focusing more and more on clothes so there should be school uniforms at every school. This is why we should have them one kids won’t get judged for their clothes, two school will be efficient, last they cost less money. So here’s why we should have uniforms.

School uniforms are great because they are stopping kids from judging more and more kids. Kids in school will not be judge for how they look. You can’t say something bad to someone on how their clothes look if there wearing the same dress as you. They will equal to one another by having the clothes, books, and more. They can work out their differences without clothes, doing it a recess and in speech. No one can put you down by saying you’re clothes are ugly and make you feel bad about yourself. No one wants that.

School uniforms make school look more efficient. Schools with uniforms the students and the school will get better grades. If the principal is getting interview the interviewer might look at the school grade and if grades are good, he might say this is a great school to go to. Then more and more student will go to that school. Which then will make the school more and more popular. And then it would be one of the best school to go to and I know that feeling.

School uniforms cost less money. Parents don’t have to spend money on school clothes they can just by the uniform, which might be cheap! Most of the time uniforms are not that much when you by them at school. It helps you if you don’t have that much money. You could save up to go on a trip, or to buy a small house! We all need sometimes to save money.

Some people disagree that uniforms are a bad idea. They think kids should be free to wear their own clothes because it’s an expression of themselves.   So now you learned all the advantage uniform have like how uniform, stop kids from judging, make schools look more efficient, and save money I hope you learned somethings about uniforms.

Water is Important

Other, Other, Other!! Cesar Cabrera via Compfight

by Sarah

There are beginning to be droughts in many different places so we need to do as much as we can to conserve water. Once we don’t have anymore water and when it is gone it isn’t coming back. We cannot survive without water. What would you do if you didn’t have anymore water? We need to save water because it is limited, it is crucial to our survival, and not only people need water but plants and animals do to.

Since water is limited so we need to save as much of it as we can. If you turn off the water while you brush your teeth you can save up to 4 gallons of water. An average bath uses 37.5 gallons of water. An average shower uses 57.4 gallons of water. An average shower head per uses 7 gallons of water per minute. The normal flush uses 5 gallons of water each time.Not only humans need water to survive but plants and animals do too. Trees, grass, flowers, and many more plants need water.  So we need to save water.

Water is crucial to our survival. Without fresh water people can die in just a few days. We can only survive for 3 days without water, and drinking water also prevents headaches. Trees, grass, flowers, and many more plants need water. All kinds of animals need water, especially fish, whales, and many more animals need lots and lots of water to stay alive just like we do.

In conclusion we are having droughts in lots and lots of places so therefore we need to do everything that we can to save water. Humans, plants, and animals need a lot of water to stay alive. I think that some people believe that right now it is not that important to save water but I do. People think that it is not important to save water because they feel it is something that the government will take care of, or they think it should not concern them yet.

Die Food Dye!

Can you believe that they put food dye in this!

Creative Commons License Alex Gorzen via Compfight

By Eliza H.

Food dye is bad for you so why do we have it in food? Food dye was invented in the year 1390 A.D and people still want it in food. Food dye should be removed from all food. Food dye can trick you, it has many chemicals and bugs in it, some people are allergic to it, and it is very bad for you.

Food dye can trick you to make it look like something it is not. It makes food look like it will taste better. Have you ever had cheetos? They look so good with that bright orange cheese powder. It might look good but, it has food dye in it and there is no cheese in it whatsoever. Do you like toasting marshmallows around a campfire? Surprise! Marshmallows have food dye too.

Food dye is made with chemicals and bugs. The chemical in food dye is the same one that is in gasoline, asphalt, and tar. The chemical is called  petroleum. And there are a variety of bugs that go in food dye.

Food dye is bad for your health. It can lead to cancer and ADHD if you eat too much and it can make you have hypersensitivity. Some people are allergic to it. Some side effects are eczema, hives, asthma, mixed emotions, flushing, headaches, itchy skin, and swelling of the face. Europe has taken food dye out of there food because they know it is bad for them and because they researched and found a link with hyperactivity in children and want to make sure they are not food dye’s next victim.

Food dye is a fun way to color your food. Food dye should not be in food even though it make food more enjoyable. Food dye does not help your health. It can lead to cancer and it has chemicals in it. And some people are allergic to it. This is why the U.S. should take food dye out of food.

Drones Safe or Not?

Drone-023

Here is a drone.

The definition of the word drone is an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate by   itself beyond the line of sight. Does that really sound very safe? Drones can be fun but they are also dangerous so we need to control their use. Drones were built for fun not safety! They are dangerous, they can cause dangerous problems, and the government doesn’t have a way to keep track of all the drones.

One reason we should ban drones is that drones are actually very dangerous. If a drone hits you it could send you to the hospital, or even kill you! There have been many drone caused accidents and here are a couple. Once a man was killed in Brooklyn when a drone hit him. another time a toddler was hit with wreckage when a man crashed his drone. Once a drone even crashed on the lawn of the white house.

The next reason that we should ban drones is that drones can cause lots of dangerous problems. If a drone hits a electricity line it could cause blackouts. Some drones also get in a plane’s path and could get hit. This is both a waste of a perfectly good drone and a hazard for the plane and passengers.

The last reason is that the government can’t keep track of who has a drone and who doesn’t. If someone flies their drone over private property their drone could get shot down and the owner could even get sued. An example of this was that once a man shot down a $18,000 drone that was flying over his property with a shotgun.

Even though drones are not very safe they are lots of fun. They can also be useful, police officers can use drones for surveillance or to spy on somebody. And just think about it wouldn’t it be cool to use the camera to fly around and just look. This was what other people thought until drones started causing trouble. As long as people fly drones they will always be a problem.

No More Smoking!

Smoking is an unhealthy habit that many people have so we should ban smoking. It can kill you. People used to think smoking was good for you. Many places have banned smoking. But some people don’t think we should ban smoking.

Many people have the habit of smoking. It can kill you. 443,000 people die because of smoking every year with 42,000 people dying in just the us alone, because of smoking. That’s all most 10% of all the smoking deaths.1,300 people die a day, just because of smoking that’s a lot.

They have also banned smoking in Mississippi. they banned smoking in Mississippi. they also banned smoking in San Lupus Obicas. Many places all over the world have banned smoking. We should put a stop to smoking everywhere.

Back in the 1920’s to the 1950”s people used to think that smoking wasn’t bad for. But what they didn’t know that it was bad for you, it turns your lungs black and it also causes lung cancer. People back then would smoke in commercials. In 1964 scientist found out that smoking is bad for your lungs and it kills you.

Thank you for reading my essay, and I hope you now want to ban smoking. It kills you. It has been banned in many places all over the world. Now let’s do it together and ban smoking. Smoking is just not right.

The Washington Redskins should change their name and logo because it is offensive to Native Americans. Hundreds of sports teams have racist team names, so they need to change their name. The mascot does not look like a real Native American. Fans bring weapons called tomahawks to the game,this makes them seem violent  Whereas some people think they shouldn’t change because that is their original name.

The first reason why I state teams need to change their names is that many mascots and fans do not dress like real Native Americans. Wearing a headdress is considered an honor among tribes. This makes it offensive to some tribes that dress that way. Fans dress up like a specific tribe suggesting that Native Americans are just one big tribe with the same clothings and customs.

The mascots wear face paint and carry indian weapons called tomahawks. Native Americans point out that this makes them seem violent and bloody. The mascot looks like a cartoon,the 1951 logo looks nothing like a real Native American.

Few people would ever call a Native American a redskin to his or her face because they know it is an offensive word. This makes it racist and offensive. We have already gone over this, why do we have to go over it again. Racism is wrong.

The Redskins should change their name because it is racist and offensive, no one would call someone a redskin to his or her face and the logo looks nothing like a real Native American. Some people think different and don’t agree that the redskins logo is racist and offensive. They think that because that was their logo since they were originated they should not change it. Hundreds of sports teams have racist team names and they need to change it because it is racist and offensive. One of them is the Washington Redskins.
