I think the drinks should be taxed because it would make the price higher making some people not want to pay as much for the drinks they shouldn’t be consuming anyway.
Should sugary drinks be taken off the market? Or should people just limit themselves to what they are drinking or should they be putting a grocery tax on the drinks? Either way you look at the situation businesses are losing money from people not buying their drinks or from the tax. This debate has been going on for a long time. Some people think it’s the sugary drinks in general that are leading to the diseases like diabetes or obesity, others think it the amount that is consumed on a daily bases. With some drinks, kids are getting 4 times the amount of sugar that they are supposed to have in one day with only drinking one.
Supporters of the tax are saying it’s easy for people to take in the calories without even thinking. Some are wanting to add a “grocery tax”, but that will bring up other items prices too which some people cannot afford let alone can the businesses handle it, it would take money away from them hurting our economy. Opponents of the tax are funded largely by the American Beverage Association which has paid for nearly $10 million in television ad time.
Taxing means people having to pay more for the things they need, but if people cut back on drinking the sugary drinks all together they wouldn’t have to worry about spending as much money. People are assuming that taxing is going to help the situation when in all reality it won’t because if they tax one thing they would have to bring up the grocery tax price on everything along with it which would leave the people who don’t have the money for all the stuff out of luck.
The sugary drinks are bad for the people who are consuming more than need be, but if they stop selling so much in stores they wouldn’t be having this problem. Not saying taxing is a great idea because even when they taxed things like cigarettes people are still buying them, but it wouldn’t hurt to try it instead of not trying to fix the problem all together. With diseases like diabetes and obesity becoming more common it is tearing families apart with a specific person in that family wanting nothing more than what they want then and there.
What is screen flow? Screen flow is a way to record what you as a user have on your screen while the users are working. While using screen flow the user can either just record their screen or they can have your camera on to where it will record them and what you are saying and or doing.
To make the tutorial I used screen flow to record and edit a previously made screen flow, I had shown how to scale, make a callout, add a text box, add annotations, add transitions, and how to split clips, and how to export your screen flow all of a screen flow showing how to get to the wiki’s vocabulary words of the week.
Screen flow can be very helpful in the future if someone needs to have notes, this person can take notes and put them into a screen flow instead of having to read the notes they can listen to them, or if they are bad at presentations they can record a presentation and play the presentation in front of a big group of people. People can use screen flow in everyday life and many people do.
My aunt is my biggest hero, my mom's sister. Stephanie MooreKoscho, she has no children, she wasn't married until two years ago during Halloween. She lives in Lorain running a very successful kayak business, selling kayaks, teaching people how to kayak, going to different places to get licenses to be able to teach people different things.
My aunt is a very caring person she's always worrying about others, yet she will tell you how she feels if she notices something is happening that she doesn't like. She is very humble, and defiantly cares about the environment. She loves having fun and staying active she’s always going on bike rides and kayaking and eating healthy, but she will definitely not second guess wanting to stay inside to spend time with family, she’s the type of person everyone is friends with. She really is just a go with the flow type of person, putting others before herself, she's very loyal when it comes to friendships and family and work, never wanting to miss a day of work and always making time for family and friends even if it's just to play a board game.
My aunt is my hero, because she taught me that there is more to life than what we think, she taught me we can make the best out of most any situation. Although I don't see her as often as wanted, she is my number one supporter in most everything that I do. She comes to support me during sports, or for academic events that are going on. She makes a great role model because she is a very successful person. Every year she hosts an event called a Black River clean up. She gathers groups of people from Lorain to come to the Black River to clean up the garbage that is on, in, or around the river. Hundreds of people come, some not even from Lorain. The clean up even gets broadcasted on the news. That’s just one of the many accomplishments that she has made in the past couple of years. That personally I’m very proud of her for. I want to be as successful as she is when I get to be her age.
