Murders, kidnapping, drug trafficking, and lots of partying goes on every day by every cartel and by every drug lord south of the border. Unfortunately, these two topics have much in common in Mexico. Civilians that do not have anything to do with the cartels get caught up in these kind of events like partying with them, then, unexpectedly local police, federal police, and even the marines show up to kill the show. Inevitably, this happened to my cousins, brother, and I when my family decided to visit in the summer of 2010 when I was only eleven years old. As you cross the border into Mexico, through Chihuahua, you will notice nothing but a beautiful, dry, brown desert that stretches across the horizon for miles. Realistically, one of the first things you will notice as well are firearms and sirens. So this was my welcome to Juarez at 6:00am, a long wait on the Texas side, only to witness soldiers posted behind barricades with fully loaded automatic firearms and then a mile or two, into the city, to view the rushing of police vehicles to a crime scene with their glorious blue and red sirens on. Throughout the whole drive, I scanned the isolated houses with my eyes in which looked abandoned, wondering which houses belonged to who, if they were owned by filthy rich drug…

    For my service project I did two types of volunteering. One was being the president of Kilmer's Student Council Association (SCA).

    Clendinnen recounts the history of the Yucatan peninsula once the Spanish arrived. She splits her recounting into two sections: the Spanish’s perceptive and the Mayan’s perspective. Clendinnen’s recounting the Spanish side of history demonstrates a struggle not only between the Spanish and the new land and its inhabitants, but also the internal conflicts between the Spanish settlers and the friars. At first she tells us how the Spaniards’ interactions with the natives consisted of tribute…

    The protein that is in sequence one is Alpha-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein is a protein whose function in the healthy brain is currently unknown (Alpha-synuclein and Parkinson's Disease, n.d.). Parkinson's disease researchers take great interest in it because it is a major constituent of Lewy bodies, which are protein clumps that are the pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease (Alpha-synuclein and Parkinson's Disease, n.d.). Researchers work to characterize the protein's role in Parkinson’s…

    Moreover, while Bloom endorses the linearity of influence, and Borges highlights its fluidity, a third distinct perception emerges. Thompson (2014, p.114) utilises David Foster Wallace’s short story B.I. #59 as a framework from which to interrogate Bloom and Borges’ arguments, detecting, “throughout [Wallace’s] fiction, influence comes not only from the past (as in Bloom’s model), or from a future, anticipated text (as in Borges’s model) but also from the cultural present.” Consequently,…

    Climate Change and Trade Networks as Causes of the Classic Maya Collapse The ancient Lowland Maya were a thriving and advanced society, capable of building great monuments able to survive to the present. It is therefore a mystery as to why, at the end of the Classic period from the eighth to eleventh century, Maya sites show signs of massive decline and desertion; this is referred to as the “collapse” of the Maya, though it was not an immediate or evenly distributed phenomenon (Douglas,…
