Well, the kids debated it in 2014, and three years later it is a reality. Look at this sign in a Japanese restaurant on 31st street in Manhattan. They only accept credit and debit cards…no money allowed! Which means that if you wanted to pay for your meal with dollars and coins, or if you are not old enough to have a credit/debit card, or if your credit card was turned down, etc., etc., you have to go to another restaurant. Bad luck if you are craving sushi!
This just in from Sondra Lowe-Stuart, culinary teacher from 721M, regarding the final live debates:
“The team would like to say thank you for the opportunity to once again cater for your event. They all had their own reflective moments that I wanted to share with you.
Jayden said he was happy to cook food for you.
Gary said it was “too much work, but he liked it.”
Mehki said he liked “cooking the food, but he loved making the juice because it was his favorite kind.”
The opportunity you provided the students of MSCD was invaluable. We as a school community are very thankful but more importantly we are honored.”
Thank you, Sondra, Jayden, Gary, and Mehki, for your hard work and care.
The debate is over, but we just now came across a map showing some of the major sanctuary cities in the U.S.
The D75 debate is over, but the Dakota Access Pipeline is still in the news. This report states that a federal judge ordered the Army Corps of Engineers to do more environmental testing, which could shut down the pipeline in the future.
Congratulations to all of the teams on another incredible season. The results are in! Drumroll please….
