    IB cancelled

    Another thing you could try would be a petition, you would have to fully commit to that coz it could take awhile. I am seeing similar stuff. Next year my school is restricting the ToK classes to only kids who need it for the IB program, which is ridiculous because our first year ToK teacher is phenomenal. A few years after that they're planning on getting rid of it all together. Our administration is full of a bunch of dunces who have no idea what they're doing.

    What sport do you play?

    Used to play American football but I got tendonitis in my patellar tendon and had to quit now I am getting into rock climbing and paintballing
  12. I agree with everything you said but the reason they want to restrict assault weapons (full and semi automatic rifles) and high cap mags is because they are much more lethal against large groups of people as they have a much higher rate of fire. If the shooter was stuck with say...a bolt action rifle he would have to fire, pull the bolt back which ejects the empty cartridge, and slide it forward again chambering a new bullet compared to pulling it rapidly or just holding the trigger down and spraying indiscriminately. I'm not sure I completely understand it myself because semiautomatic pistols and shotguns are just as readily available and they aren't attempting to do anything with those weapons. And don't use guns as a reason for not going to the U.S. If they are used safely and responsibly by people who are psychologically sound with no intent to kill anybody, they really aren't bad.
  13. The Atlantic Charter was issued in 1941 (?) and it basically outlined what the Western Powers' goals were after the war (we didn't go over the Atlantic Charter either, but I was curious so I skimmed the article about it on Wikipedia. I just wanted to at least address the question, ya'll can feel fre to correct me) Two major causes for WWI, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serbian national Gavrilo Princip sparked the war which was made possible through militarism, imperialism, secret alliances, and nationalism. There were several other incidents such as the Moroccan crises (one in 1905 and one in 1911). The United States got involved after Germany resumed unrestricted warfare on ships carrying supplies to Britian, France, and Russia. What were several reasons as to why the German Army initially had overwhelming success against the Russians in WWII?
  14. Do not reward yourself by checking Facebook, Twitter, etc. It does not refresh your brain; it makes it worse (from my experience as well as other co-students at my school). Reward yourself with other things instead, like a chocolate piece or a cookie! Or bacon. Bacon is always good. Anyways, checking something like facebook helps me individually but yeah, you're right the majority of people probably should stay away. Another thing that helps is physical activity, maybe a few sit ups or push ups, even going for a jog around the block. Get the blood pumping. Helps me at least but everybody is different.
  15. Give yourself incentives to keep studying. For instance work for twenty minutes than take a quick 5 min break to check facebook, twitter, etc. It kind of refreshes your brain.
