100 years ago, the Panama Canal was opened for business linking two channels of trade for the first time ever in a more efficient and appropriate manner. The Panama Canal is a symbol of international relations, new age globalization, and the universal exchange of culture. Yes, a 48 mile long series of locks has the capability to impact us on such a level. The Panama Canal was not only an economic venture but also a symbol of the United States’ growing involvement with Latin A...

Le sénat français a adopté une nouvelle loi qui concerne l'’environnement, la loi d'avenir agricole. Dans un article dans le journal Le Monde, j’ai lu qu’il y avait beaucoup de lutte contre les actions gouvernementales et toutes les choses qui concernent les régulations. Je savais qu’il y a un grand mouvement « vert » en France pour améliorer la situation nationale de production, conservation, recyclage, etc., mais je ne savais pas que cette loi était dans l’agend...

There are two African-American women who have been on the arts radar recently--Misty Copeland and Keke Palmer. I've been following Keke Palmer since my parents introduced me to the movie Akeelah and the Bee seven years ago. She was refreshing and zesty with the right kind of sass. At the same time, she reminded me that an actress like her was an oddity in arts today. African-American, young, female and ambitious. A lethal combination of brains and beauty, Keke Palmer is taking Broa...

Tenemos un gran problema con la inmigración en los Estados Unidos. ¿Qué podemos hacer? ¿Bueno, qué debemos hacer? Los Estados Unidos es un gran país que fue establecido por los inmigrantes europeos. Sí, los indígenas estaban aquí, pero eso es una historia completamente diferente. Ahora, nuestro país consiste de un gobierno dominado por los “hombres viejos de descendencias europeas”. No estoy de acuerdo con eso. Pues, puedo protestar las injusticias; pero es mejor que...

Ebola—c’est un virus. Est-ce qu’il y a beaucoup de danger avec cette maladie ? Oui et non. Avec la crise africaine d’Ebola, tout le monde s’inquiète des risques, des symptômes, et des morts. Récemment, un médecin est arrivé aux États-Unis comme un patient qui a contracté l’Ebola. A ce moment-là, j’ai été très étonnée parce qu’il y a voyagé comme un participant d’un programme international d’aide pour le Libéria. Avant d'avoir pensé « Quelle ho...

How can we just sit around and do nothing? America, do something! President Obama, take action! Formerly, I supported our President with blind hopes thinking that he would revolutionize the way the Untied States has approached foreign policy since the atrocities of the 1960s and beyond. However, much to my chagrin and dismay (also, on behalf of the many citizens in this country who agree with me), the United States has yet to lift a finger concerning the conflict in the Middle East...

Poppies Humanity is a field of poppies. Tepid summers pluck seedlings and rest them in sodden plains. Each bursts roots thrusting into soil of eons past. Folding, bending, twisting and contorting… Running together like schoolchildren in the village None have foreseen the winter to come. Frigid winds strike with savage intentions. Acrid, adverse, and ablaze in spite… At first the seedlings hold together, but soon they desert one another. Spring arri...

Ce grand été-ci est très plein de sports. Partout dans le monde, on voit les courses, les matchs, les tournois, etc. Voici, le coupe mondiale s’est fini ; mais, quoi, les batailles continuent. Pourquoi ? C’est simple, mes amis : les sports font la vie. Oui, une grande partie de la culture distinguée pour chaque culture, chaque identité nationale se consiste des sports. Cet été, nous avons vu les vrais fanas de foot et de cyclisme. À vrai dire, beaucoup de concurrences e...

Dear VOY, Working with you has been a great journey. I honestly believe that you have made my life a more meaningful one by simply allowing me to write away my concerns on this forum. I have grown mentally and emotionally while reading what many of my peers have written from all over the world. I still cannot believe that I can share my opinion as openly and freely as I do beside my friends from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. I wish to commemorate my 1 year an...
