Marijuana consumption for recreational and medical purposes has increased significantly. As evidenced by the outcomes of a 2013 National Survey on Drug Use, approximately 17 million people in the United States have consumed marijuana (D’Souza, Wilkinson, Schalkwyk, & Davidson, 2016). Marijuana in Pennsylvania, including other 23 states, is legalized for medical purposes. Individuals supporting the legalization of the drug contend that it is a form of treatment for people diagnosed with chronic illnesses. For opponents of legalization, marijuana consumption results in poor social outcomes, long-term health impacts, and psychosis (D’Souza et al., 2016). Therefore, it is important to comprehend the effect of marijuana legalization for recreational and medical use. Continue reading “Substance Abuse: Marijuana Essay”

In the book The Teens are not Alright, Cathy Vatterott shows how the quest for perfectionism among teenagers in America is causing unnecessary teen stress. The crammed schedules in schools and excessive workload have made many teens ignore rest, which is an essential part of their growth and development.
Although every student should strive to achieve a better grade in school, I find Cathy’s argument to be very convincing. I agree with her that sleep is a necessary part of growth for all human beings. Cathy consents that the worrying trend of expecting perfectionism among our teenagers should be brushed off, and instead, schools ought to adopt a sleep slogan. The author’s biggest worry is in the way schools handle teenagers by expecting them to achieve great deeds, yet little time is given for their rest. Lack of rest among teenagers in most American schools has proven to be an issue of concern among significant stakeholders in the American education system. Continue reading “Summary Response Essay”
The ownership of firearms remains one of the most controversial issues in the United States. Often, instances of high-profile mass shootings generate major debates about the rights of Americans to wield weapons, with gun control supporters attaching special importance to public safety. Their pro-gun counterparts, contrariwise, usually advocate self-defense. They also claim that firearm control rarely reduces crime or violence. Both sides have convincing arguments. Nevertheless, does owning a firearm enhance people’s safety? I believe not. The United States, therefore, must enforce severer weapons control laws to decrease the regularity of gun violence and deaths. Continue reading “Gun Control: The Necessity of Stricter Regulations”
The World Health Organization (WHO), on March 11, formally declared the coronavirus epidemic to be a pandemic. The week before, the seriousness of the situation was recognized by investors and economists. A month before that, a pandemic with hundreds of thousands and millions of infected was considered unlikely, so no one tried to calculate its consequences. Now, this scenario is considered along with softer ones.
In early February 2020, economists focused only on epidemics of the recent past. It is important to understand that older episodes are not suitable for this analysis because the principles of the world economy in the beginning-middle of the XIX century were entirely different. A massive outbreak of SARS in 2003, is taken as the basis, but it also cannot be seen as a truly prospective prognosis. In a nutshell, a positive projection is this: the consequences of the new epidemic would be limited. China would lose less than one percentage point of growth, and then recover quickly; other economies of Southeast Asia would slow down; the rest of the world would hardly be affected (Russolillo, Chiu, 2020).

The Cask of Amontillado replicates Poe’s Gothicism that permeates his literal narratives. However, Montresor executes the murder in the smartest possible way without the grotesque graphics of murder and by sleuth escape of criminal justice retribution. The story further exudes Poe’s support for instinctive justice as opposed to legal justice. As a member of the Animal kingdom, man is endowed with inherent instincts to independently avenge himself/herself in the same manner that a wild animal defends itself against an attacker. Montresor abrogates himself the role of the jury, judge and hangman over Fortunato’s injuries and insults (Axelrod-Sokolov, 2018). The Cast of Amontillado thus portrays a “rule for the judge” kind of society characterized by instinctive justice in complete disregard of the state and criminal justice system that leads to chaos as each citizen exploits his biased rationality to mete unmeasured punishment on the suspect. Continue reading “The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe Essay”
