Raider Reflections: Should We Allow It?

Mar 13, 2017

In Alaska, one of our main incomes is from fishing. Bristol Bay is the largest spawning sight in Alaska for wild sockeye salmon. Many commercial fishermen, seafood processors, locals, etc. harvest the sockeye salmon runs each year.The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) helps make rules and restrictions to protect important sights like Bristol Bay from further development that may hurt the environment.Over a decade ago, Pebble Mine, a mineral exploration project, wanted to look for ore in Bristol Bay near Lake Iliamna and Lake Clark.

Raider Reflections: America’s Roots

Mar 8, 2017

On February 16th, 2017,America saw what it would be like without immigrants. This day was known as “A Day Without Immigrants,” where many immigrants skipped work, didn’t shop at malls, didn’t eat out at restaurants, didn’t buy gas, and didn’t even send their kids to school. As a result, many schools were missing half of their student body, restaurants and fast food places had to close down since no workers showed up, and many malls and stores lacked the usual amount of customers.

Raider Reflections: Wrong Mine in the Wrong Place

In 2006, Northern Dynasty Minerals introduced the Pebble Mine proposal to a multitude of communities in Bristol Bay, Alaska to construct one of the world’s largest open-pit mines in the middle of the region. They sought to mine a large amount of copper, gold, and molybdenum.   

A majority of Alaskans came to oppose the Pebble Mine (though it was not easy) because it would affect the fisheries and the clean water supply located in Bristol Bay. But it also would create high-paying jobs and local citizens would have more disposable income.

Raider Reflections: The Fog

According to the CNN article “The Dangers of Dripping, Artisanal Vaping”, 1,874 students reported having tried an E-cigarette.  However, more than 26 percent of those who’d tried vaping also reported dripping, which is putting in more juice, according to a doctor who is investigating e- cigarettes. People mostly like e-cigarettes because of the thick clouds of vapor that gives a stronger sensation in the throat. Although it has an appealing flavor; it doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

Donald Trump’s visa ban for citizens from seven predominantly Muslim nations violates their principles. I don’t think that Muslims should be excluded from entering the United States because of their religion. Why would Donald Trump ban Muslims? Just because of terrorism? I don’t think this is a good way to protect the United States or any other country.
