    Astronomy is a very interesting career. It is the branch of science that deals with outer space objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole. They use data on movements, compositions, and other properties of space objects and phenomena. I chose this career because astronomers make a good bit of money, and also because I enjoy reading and learning about outer space. They increase our understanding of the universe, and our place in it. There are a number of skills needed for an…

    Reading Response #2 In “Making Spaces for Mosques,” Sharene Razack explores the struggles Muslim groups face in creating their own space in urban cities like Toronto and how issues of citizenship, racialization and identity intersect with that struggle. Razack uses the then East York Council’s objection to building a mosque in a vacant factory building to emphasize the “complicated politics of the production of urban space” (Razack, 189).

    Whether it is through a dirty car window, where I can barely tell the difference between muted stars and specks of dust or it is far away from civilization when the stars shine their brightest, I am left speechless. Space is terrifying and beautiful and mysterious and unknowable all at once. It is the one thing I yearn to understand but am delighted to know that I never will. When I look up at the stars, I feel so unspeakably small. I am reminded, time and time again…

The trip was a very eye opening experience where I learned that I have many things to be thankful for. This past summer, I decided to go on another…

    As humans have developed so has the improvement of the abodes they called home. Humans strived to create shelters originally for safety and warmth, but as they spread across the planet and grew intellectually, socially, and industrially the idea of the house changed to also mean an extension of the family. What someone does or does not do to their house’s exterior, landscape, and interior was a subtle, or sometimes blunt, statement about the family that resided there. As the need to express…
