    How do you earn money?

    i work at a grocery store which is very boring 2 times a week for about 6 hours average each day at 7.25 an hour (us dollars) but i cant stand the mind numbing effects of beeping items across a scanner and asking the same questions to every person hundreds of times a day so im taking leave for school and going to wait to work again during the summer.

    Is it time to intervene in Syria?

    You're assuming that any leader who kills their own people has common sense... and it would be to no benefit to the US if we were to support the rebels. the ideal scenario is that we are able to take away the rebels and the governments abilities to mass murder the people stuck in the middle of it. so to help those people without changing the outcome of the civil war.

    Is it time to intervene in Syria?

    see i agree that we shouldn't take sides and let the civil war play out but the question is about response to the chemical weapons used against the civilians. i believe that if we go in strictly to take away WMD then it would force them to fight their civil war without being able to cause genocide to their innocent people. idk if i quite agree with you though because the US isn't really supporting either side at this moment and there are multiple rebel groups and none of them have the strength to have chemical weapons. at least that's what we're told here. and my guess is that syria is testing us and killing their own people for power so that when we go to attack them they can say "if you attack us we'll attack israel" and then all the other radical islamic groups will jump in and rage war against israel. it's only a matter of time. israel could fend off just syria (cuz they have our help) but against them all they would be screwed unless we helped them tremendously.

    Is this normal in a Pre-IB French class?

    WHAT? R U SERIOUS? i thought ib french would be the equivalent in difficulty to french extended high school's french program! And I live in Toronto Well, that depends on which level of French you are going to go into. If you are going to go into French A (for native speakers) then you're going too slow. If it's French B (the intermediate level), then that's okay. I don't live in a Francophone country, but my friends who took the course all got 7s and 6s (to be exact, there were three 7s and two 6s). Although they were in French B SL, so I would assume that maybe for French B HL these tenses would be covered in grade 10. But trust me, you really don't need to worry! Thanks, but now I just find French class a huge waste of time. Is it possible to take some sort of exam and skip to Grade 10 IB french instead? no this probably isn't possible. in ap classes for instance at least in america you can not even take the class and just take the test and get credits for it if you pass but in Ib class hours matter to get your diploma. However, it could be possible that if your in IB sl french you could switch to HL and that would give you more of a challenege but idk about Canada i hope this advice helps.

    Why don't you believe in God?

    Science is only what we think we know, we are limited by our perception and our bodies. Some come to the conclusion that everything we know is to survive so it may not actually be true, just useful to our survival. Until you can leave the human body, your capabilities are capped. On the earth is round thing, that whole story is bogus. The ancient Greeks knew that the Earth was round and learned people from then on knew that. The whole earth is flat actually came from people who were not educated either theologically or in some stream of study of the world around us. They interpreted scripture literally and well, thats now making many problems haha. And yeah many many people stop thinking when they join a religion, but many also grow intellectually through their faith. see people this guy knows his sh!t haha thanks man i very much agree we will never really know what is what but it does make a good discussion topic. i like how you state both directions.

    Why don't you believe in God?

    i as an Evangelist christian completely respect this stance from people. You can't prove that God does or does not exist. you just have a hunch of what you choose to believe and you should follow that. i have reasons for believing but if you don't then you don't there's nothing wrong with either way.

    Is it time to intervene in Syria?

    Although Assad is barbaric, the rebels are making quite a name for themselves as well. Look at any of their ideologies, they are pledging allegiance to radical Islam. Slaughtering those who support Assad, executing POWs and on occasion eating the hearts of their enemies... at least under Assad minorities are protected and everyone is equally suppressed. Launching these missiles is allowing the US to get its foot in the door, by getting involved "marginally" it will turn into some sort of moral duty,etc... That being said I dont think the American people will allow it to get to that point. They are sick of Wars in the Middle east for so called moral issues meanwhile their soldiers are dying over oil... i completely agree with you on this however i would argue that minorities are protected under Assad. the innocent people are suffering and don't take a side to deserve it. i believe you're right to say that we are doing it for morality but is that correct to just for morals or not? what is your decision? do u think we should strike or no and why? also what is Canada's new and government saying about the issue seeing that you're from there i would find that interesting. thankyou!

    Which IB exams are imporant?

    well call me crazy but i heard exams are important and decide your grade so just a random thought but they're probably all important... haha just kidding im not really a jerk your SL class exams are probably going to be your first tests so they are important as a bench mark but the HL exams are the most important because chances are that you picked ur HL classes on the basis of what you enjoy and want to per sue in college. therefore they are what the university will mostly look at. at least in the US schools that is how it works idk too much about else where.

    I take IB spanish sl but i noticed the similarity and what i would say to this in my opinion is the IB program is setup to give you strong long lasting knowledge in every subject not just a learn this quick for the test and forget it style of language learning like normal school usually is. so when the kids not doing IB are "ahead" of you it's not really true. You will have much more in depth vocabulary and ability to speak it and you will maintain it much better compared to others. Slow and steady wins the race.

    Is it time to intervene in Syria?

    i believe that the united states should take action purely by the fact that we have one of the strongest military's in the world and the technology to at least keep either side from having to power to harm the harmless people there. I don't think either side is correct on the civil war part and we shouldn't help either side but your question is asking about the chemical weapons and i feel like we can make a difference without picking a side. so if you had to say a side it would be the side of the innocent civilians tht must standby in the war. and from there France will obviously join in and that would be enough but it would be better and look better if other allies jumped in as well to stand as united countries for what is right. Syria=
  13. hey guys! i have come to realize that i truly suck when it comes to grasping and understanding information from a text in history for example. when someone reads it out loud or explains it i can really understand it and enjoy it alot but when we have long reading assignments i often find myself reading a page and realizing i have no idea what i just read. has anyone else had this problem also and solved it somehow? if so how? any help or suggestions is great. i also wanna hear some other peoples go to study styles, like music or silence or groups or alone... etc. im pretty sure im adhd to some extent so keep that in mind haha i cant seem to ever focus well.

    graphing calculator-important

    i guess i cant help you because i have the ti-84 plus c silver edition because that's what ib recommended i guess for my class (HL math) and im from the USA so it could be different for you but i strongly suggest asking your teacher to help you out because chances are that you will be using the same recommened calculator as them but if they cant help you out there is great youtube tutorials for different calculators and you can even look up a manual for your type online
  15. i would say man is neither good or bad out of nature. we have free will and in some cases you can get more out of being bad than good. so i understand the argument of only helping to get something in return but i think true favors do exist and doing something good just for something in return is arguably bad.
