Police brutality is a terrible and very real problem. Just because you have an authority and ability to get away with things that a normal citizen won’t doesn’t mean you should use it for personal gain and to your advantage. In America cops are supposed to protect their citizens but it seems like they’re protecting the corrupt system they’re in more. We can easily see how bad police brutality is in America by statistics and numbers. Ever since 2015, 5000 murders have been committed by cops, and most of them go off without consequences.

        Is police brutality real? And to what extent?

Police brutality is a terrible and very real problem. Just because you have an authority and ability to get away with things that a normal citizen won’t doesn’t mean you should use it for personal gain and to your advantage. In America cops are supposed to protect their citizens but it seems like they’re protecting the corrupt system they’re in more. We can easily see how bad police brutality is in America by statistics and numbers. Ever since 2015, 5000 murders have been committed by cops, and most of them go off without consequences. COVID and its seriousness

      COVID 19 is a pandemic right now, caused by the novel coronavirus. Symptoms could range from a dry cough to a fever, and, there sometimes could be no symptoms! Corona killed many of its patients mainly ranging from age 60+ or people with underlying health problems due to their lack of good and strong immune system. A great way to avoid this pandemic is to social distance and stay home, social distancing is the act of isolating yourself at least 6 feet from others. This is very important, especially since COVID numbers are skyrocketing right now. Although the numbers are skyrocketing right now the US still has been slower then the rest of the other countries to implement testing and safety laws. What you can do to reduce the spread of COVID is to wash your hands frequently, social distance and stay hygienic.

Spiders may look dangerous and you may want to kill them at first sight. However, spiders are almost harmless and can help the ecosystem.

Spiders can provide services such as eating vermin, and some can even eat other spiders.
There is even a kind of jumping spider that likes to eat blood-sucking mosquitoes in African families.
Although spiders are generalists and easily eat everything they can catch, spiders regularly catch nasty pests and even sick insects.
As a result, killing spiders not only wastes the lives of spiders, but can also remove important predators from the house.
All in all you don't have to worry about harmless spiders, spiders can actually be useful in youri home, because they can remove other irritating but more dangerous insects lurking.

Source: https://www.popsci.com/killing-spiders ———- Article ——— Sleeping disorders

If adults and teenagers do not sleep enough, there is a possibility that they may be associated with a sleep disorder. And these are the reasons why they have sleep disorders in the first place.   The article says, "Many people don't get enough sleep or sleep poorly because of their jobs or hectic schedules - they work long shifts at night or have to rush to get their children ready to catch a 6:00 school bus. About 50 million to 70 million Americans have a chronic sleep disorder such as insomnia or sleep apnea, a condition in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts all night. "   Also: “The two most common sleep disorders are sleep apnea and insomnia. Sleep apnea is when your throat closes during sleep for short but repeated periods, thereby disrupting your ability to get oxygen into your body and rid your body of waste products such as carbon dioxide. Insomnia is a condition in which individuals have chronic problems falling asleep or maintaining their sleep. Another relatively common sleep disorder is called periodic limb movement disorder, where the individual has disrupted sleep due to involuntary kicking of his legs or arms, waking him up. "   And this is how you can improve sleep health: “Institutionally, we could work harder to ensure that we do not require students or employees to follow unhealthy sleep habits. We can postpone school start times so that students, for example, do not have to get up at six to take a school bus. I also work with a group of patient advocates who have suggested that everyone who gets a driver's license is informed about sleep disorders and the impact of sleepy driving - and is considering including screening for sleep disorders as part of applying for a driver's license. "   It is actually very easy not to get a sleep disorder, you just have to write a schedule and follow it. The time you would do your homework, the time you would eat, and especially the time you would sleep. That way you have good management and you get the right amount of sleep.   In short, be careful. Get the right amount of sleep that you need, because sleep is significant. You need it to function.

——— Article ——— Yellowstone bears For half a century grizzly bears have been on the endangered list, but thankfully they have been recovered. But a new concern is coming, since grizzlies are off the endangered list 3 Western states are allowed to hold strict hunting seasons for the bear. Arguments over if grizzles can even survive a hunting,and if grizzles should be hunted for sports started to pop up, though some people claim if hunting is limited and maintained correctly hunting would not affect the population too much. The low estimate of how many Yellowstone bears are in the Greater Yellowstone area is 700 but it is more likely that there are 1,000. Overall the recovery and potential hunting of the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear was a controversial subject.

       In "Uber And Lyft Drivers Are Striking — And Call On Passengers To Boycott" It talks about how Uber and Lyft drivers are striking and are doing so by boycotting Uber and Lyft for 2 hours and protesting. This is because on minimum wage Uber and Lyft drivers aren't able to make a living, especially with the competition between all these cab drivers, and the fact they only get a fraction of what they make due to ride fees. 
       This boycott happened because of Uber and Lyft had been taking away most of the money earned by the drivers, this had the drivers struggle more since they weren't making much money. Nusrat Nabila, a thirthy-year-old Uber driver said "Kinda like the big fish making all the money, and we being individuals, I'm at the bottom of the chain so I'm getting pressed." This shows how drivers struggle to already make money since they're giving away most of the money away to these companies. Due to this the NYC drivers are demanding that these companies stop this because they're being selfish, especially since Uber ranks in about 91 billion dollars.
      With Uber and Lyft drivers not earning enough money, they're demanding an 'actually living wage'. Esspecially since their wages are getting lower, their 'competition's ' getting higher and their lack of security has made a bad experience for a lot of Uber and Lyft drivers. the NYC drivers association said, "Uber/Lyft going public on the stock market will make billionaires of Uber and Lyft bosses while drivers struggle in poverty and the companies destroy the livelihoods of drivers in every sector," . It shows how selfish these rideshare companies are and how they don't even care about their employees.
