My boss has bad breath

My boss will sometimes come over and work on projects with me. The problem is, he has terrible breath. Like....terrible. There is something wrong inside of his mouth. I can hardly focus on the project because it is so distracting. What do I do?

Does life exist elsewhere in the universe?

I think life must exist outside of our planet, possibly even in another solar system. What do you think?

Do gun control laws work?

In light of what has recently happened in Las Vegas, I naturally started to think more about gun control laws. According to Mother Jones, the rates of gun violence in the 10 states with the weakest gun laws are more than three times higher than those in the 10 states with the strongest gun laws. Do you think gun control laws should be increased across the country?

Who should pay security for free speech?

I read that UC Berkeley paid $800,000 in security costs for the free speech event this weekend. That's a lot of money. Should student groups who invite controversial speakers to the campus have to foot some of the bill for security?

Just been through Hurricane Irma!

Not too bad, except a bunch of downed branches. Should I call FEMA, or just wait until the normal yard waste pickup next Wednesday?

Is $1MM too much for slander on social media?

A couple was sued by a small business owner/wedding photographer for slamming her on social media and on television and ruining her business. The wedding photographer won the lawsuit and the couple is being held liable for $1 million. Do you think they should be held liable?

Should we keep using the Oxford comma?

eileen's Side

It's a long-debated grammatical conundrum. Is the Oxford comma something that we should still be using? I know I still do it, and the importance of it is illustrated in the image below.

hello12345's Side

I actually agree that the Oxford comma should be used. Especially now that people only scan, the more visual breaks you can provide before people get distracted by the run on, the better!

What do you think about #NetNeutrality?

If you haven't noticed already, it's an internet-wide day of action to save net neutrality. It's trending on Twitter, and major websites have adopted ads and notifications to alert people about this movement.

Net Neutrality are a set of rules that keep the internet free and open — allowing you to share and access information of your choosing without interference. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has unveiled his plan to dismantle Net Neutrality, and on May 17th, the FCC has voted to let his plan move forward.

I think that allowing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to control our internet speed and access is a violation of our freedom of speech. It allows ISPs to put up extra pay walls on top of what's already happening, such as the "pay $50 more a month to have unlimited data" that Comcast already does. Now that our lifestyles and livelihood are dependent on the internet, restricting our access online is equivalent to restricting what we do in the real world. Streamers, like me and countless others on YouTube and Twitch, won't be able to provide content, if ISPs decide that we need to upgrade to a "content creator" package we can't afford in order to get the speeds that we need to do our jobs.

I feel the need to be vocal about this issue, because it's a direct violation of our rights. On the other hand, I have peers who believe that having net neutrality repealed won't change things from the way they are. Their thought is that we were doing fine before the rules were in place, will continue to be fine after, and that the movement happening today is an overreaction.

What are your thoughts?
