            Animal cruelty is a subject that is being disregarded by many but shouldn’t be. Numerous people take this subject very lightly and don’t really know or think about it. I guarantee that many readers reading this will be surprised to find out the amount of times a Canadian abuses an animal. This is why I’ve taken on this issue and have chosen to talk about it.

  The article “Researchers Created Fake News. Here’s What They Found” written by Neil Irwin from the New York Times on January 18 2017 talks about the fake news that has become more widespread over the years. He starts off by talking about the elections and the speculation that the fictitious claims surrounding the election could actually sway the result toward Donald Trump. Two researches, Hunt Allcott of New York University and Matthew Gentzkow of Stanford, threw some “cold water” on the theory that fake news was a big influence on the election result.

The Zimmerman 911 tape made it big in the news and the internet. Its reason is shocking. The trust worthy NBC news has posted a fake tape demonstrating how racist Zimmerman was towards the victim. Here is a segment of the fake tape showed by the program and “said” by Zimmerman: “He looks like he’s up to no good, he looks black.” In reality, Zimmerman was not being racist towards the victim. He was only being careful and answered the dispatcher’s question. This is the real segment recorded:

An issue in society that has only been growing involves the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community. The first public battle that I can remember, was fighting for social acceptance for lesbians, gays, and those who are bisexual. The next, was gay marriage. Currently, the social issue that seems to be everywhere is relating to those who are transgender. The issue has grown since those individuals now would like to be able to use the bathroom of their choice. Now I tend to stay away from this social topic, but an article struck my attention and I have now decided to go further into this societal controversy. The article on the Newsweek website, “Denying transgender people bathroom access is linked to suicide,” caught my attention as it probably would anyone. The title caught my attention because of how simply bizarre the idea that bathroom access could ever be linked to suicide rates.
