The Recycling Law?

Recycling is good for the environment. People are able to decide whether they can do it or not though. Should they be able to? My question is, should recycling be mandatory in the homes and businesses of Lawndale, California?

Of course! I think recycling should be mandatory in Lawndale for a few reasons. The first reason is that recycling is good for the environment. It lowers the wasting of resources and lowers the percentage of trash that goes into our nation’s any landfills. We also reuse the materials we recycle so we use less of the materials we normally would use. Right now we are in something called global warming. Recycling could really help us in this situation.

The second reason is that recycling doesn’t take that much time! People who are lazy say they are too “busy”. That means they are too “busy” to throw papers, plastics, and aluminum into the recycling bin. All it really takes is a few seconds, it’s so simple! So next time somebody says they’re too “busy” or they “don’t have any time” explain that to them.

The third reason why recycling should be mandatory is because recycling saves energy, not just the environment. For example, did you know that recycling one little aluminum soda can equals enough electricity to run your television for three hours? What’s more important, saving the Earth or just a little money? Sure, the garbage company may lose some money, but that’s not that important compared to the crisis of landfills being dug in our planet, releasing chemicals that are just bad for the earth.

So, basically I think recycling should be mandatory because it’s quick, easy, and it saves many things, including our planet Earth. Now all ask of you, the mayor of Lawndale, is to think this through and make it mandatory for all of Lawndale’s homes and businesses to recycle.

This is for the Week Three Student Challenge. Lawndale is a great city. There is a brand new library, a lot of stores, a farmer’s market, and a lot of schools. The library is a newly built modern building. It is a lot bigger and better than the old one -not that pretty- and is filled with books and computers. There are so many stores in Lawndale too. I don’t think I can count them all, so let’s move on. there is also a farmer’s market that visits every Wednesday and supplies fresh produce. There are also many many many many schools in Lawndale too. There is William Green, Jane Addams, Smith Elementary School, Rogers Middle School, and Billy Mitchell, just to name a few. Well, I hope you’ve learned something about the City of Lawndale.

The Techno Future Is Mine

In 2025, nobody will know what will be invented. There are just so many possibilities. I think about the future and I think global warming will get even with us before we reach the peak of our complicated technology. Who am I to say what will happen? Like I said, the world is filled with possibilities…

I am absolutely sure about something in the future though. That something is technology. Technology in the future will be a major high point in civilization because it’s as useful as a fan and a cool drink on a hot summer day.

One thing I think of when I think of technology is robots. When I say robots, I’m not talking about those little things like R2-D2 from Star Wars, even though that would be cool if we had him in the future.  No, I’m talking way beyond little things that roll around on wheels–I’m talking about emotions, expressions, personalities, stuff that we have. I believe that in the future, robots will be another race.

This may sound scary, but there won’t be any ‘robot apocalypse’ or anything. In the future, robots will have bodies, legs, arms, and even eyes!  You might ask, “Why do we need robots?”  Well, why don’t we need robots?  People getting injured or dying in the war could be robots. It’s a simple question, would you like a human to die or a robot to “die”? The answer would be robots-–you don’t want a human to die do you?-–besides, you can’t rebuild a human (well, maybe you can…).

Another reason we would want robots in the future is for the disabled and elderly. Disabled/elderly people would need help around the house if they were in a wheelchair or if they had a bad back, wouldn’t they? Well, what if you had a robot? Yes, your very own custom robot, programmable with anything you wish! It can walk your dog or wash your car! Maybe even carry you upstairs. A robot could help the elderly, handicapped, and disabled with things they would have trouble doing on their own.

The robots would take care of orphans and be the family that the child never had. They could do all the things a parent could do, even cradle a baby. Foster kids and orphans won’t ever think that they were abandoned from the start. In a lot of ways, the robots will help.

The human-like robots would be custom-made. They would be made to suit the needs of its owner.  The robot would have artificial skin, made from antibacterial material so they couldn’t spread germs, viruses, bacteria, or disease of any kind. Every robot would walk in a humanly manner. They would respond and talk in a trillion different ways. The robots would need no support whatsoever (except for their parts). They would look like humans, but have no inner organs besides wires and circuit boards and stuff like that. A future where nobody is alone or hurt. Now that’s a technological future.
