    The use of rat poison all over the city has been a significant threat to the well-being of dogs and their owners due to  accidental ingestion.

    Topic:Limited Space on CUNY Campuses

    In recent months attending a CUNY University, I realized how providing social spaces on college campuses has become a useful staple to students. As our student community continues to grow having old and new students arriving to campus daily, the need for multiple cafeterias and lounge spaces has become an important issue.

    Sidenote…I’m still trying to find a source that backs up my thesis since my topic is very specific and broad..

    The alarming frequency of school shootings in the United States, resulting in numerous casualties, underscores the urgent need for comprehensive gun control measures. Unlike many other countries, the US struggles to address this deadly trend, prompting calls for stricter regulations to prevent further tragedies and protect public safety.

    Topic: Nurses deserve more appreciation

    I realized just how much nurses don’t really receive the amount of appreciation and respect that they truly deserve even though they work really hard and care for the patients with their whole heart. Though they do do their best to make sure every patient is cared for and even distract them to make them happier during their stay by providing fun activities, they’re not as appreciated compared to doctors simply because they don’t have that “doctor” title. Not getting enough appreciation could alter work performances and motivation form the nurses.

    A source I plan to use is;

    Aly, Howida Abo, et al. “Relationship Between Staff Nurse Motivation Level and Patient Satisfaction In Selected Hospital and the Appreciation are Staff Nurse Motivation and Patient Satisfaction.” Egyptian Nursing Journal vol. 20, no. 1, Jan.-Apr. 2023, p. 131.

    Social media has significantly altered the way we communicate, interact, and perceive the world, and while it offers numerous benefits, its pervasive influence raises concerns about privacy, mental health, and societal cohesion.

    as elections draw closer we need our voice to be heard even more prominently. why should we allow the Electoral College to stop us from having a say in who leads us?

    Not many people will know much about Global Warming and how it can be killing us little by little right now as we speak. The whole world may be effected by Global Warming. But before looking at the whole world, New York City should be a point of interest in all of this.

    Students and colleges alike must be aware and ready to prevent a case of cyber attacks or breach of  internet security. After covid most schools and colleges around the country have integrated technology to be more essential to the way we go about our education.
