"Marlins Park." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 06 Aug. 2014. Web. 08 June 2014. Marlins Park, the baseball park that houses the baseball team Miami Marlins. The stadium is quite new, opened in 2012 and is located near downtown Miami in Little Havana where the Orange Bowl stadium used to be. The construction of the stadium has been a controversy and a discontent by many ever since it's construction was proposed. The construction was funded by the city and ended up costing $2.4 billion in debt, followed by lawsuits pressed by local politicians that investigated the teams finances and realized that the payroll before and after construction did not match some of the numbers in which the tax-funded deal was based on. Some of the sources used for this article are The Miami Herald, Sun Sentinel and Wall Street Journal which are some of the informational tools that keeps people informed of the many issues that are happening. This article shows what building a stadium can represent for a city. It shows how a city and its citizens can suffer from making the wrong decisions and I use it as a comparison to try and show the concerns and grounds of the people who oppose to the idea of building another stadium in the city and why they oppose to it.

"Violence, Mental Illness and Gun Reporting Laws." NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness - Mental Health Support, Education and Advocacy. National Alliance on Mental Illness, Mar. 2013. Web. 2 June 2014. .
My third source is NAMI’s (National Alliance on Mental Illness) policy and platform regarding their position on violence and gun reporting laws that affect the mentally ill. Some of the alliances’ summarized priorities and goals are:
• Guns laws should be based on violence not mental illness
• Want to update federal standards regarding the inclusion of individuals with serious mental illness in the NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) and what information should be allowed in the system and comply with a patient’s privacy.
• Removal of offensive and outdated terminology in the NICS system.
• Lobby for more resources for mental health treatment from Federal and State governments.
• Ensure there are safeguards in place to protect the privacy of individuals whose names are included in NICS and that they are not shared with others outside of NICS purpose.

NAMI is a credible source that collaborates with our government regarding issues related to mental illness that will improve mental health treatment. The information provided in this posting helped me to understand another group’s opinion regarding the balance society is searching for with respect to gun laws, mental illness and violence. Although there is a disconnect, with dialogue we can achieve a balance that would work for all parties concerned.

"Hospitalized children Without insurance Are More Like To Die, a Study finds".(by Roni caryn Rabin, October 30, 2009.
Next; is my "Other" source that I have to use on my essay: Is a Study, about the impact of insurance coverage hospitalization for children.
Researches Analyzed data from more than 23 million children's hospitalization from 1988 to 2005.
According to one of the first studies to assess the coverage on hospitalized children, they said that uninsured children in the hospital are much more likely to die than children covered by either private or government insurance plans. Researches at Jonhns Hopkins children's center analyzed data:
*23 million children's hospitalization in 37 states from 1988 to 2005.
*60 percent increased risk of dying.
*Estimated that a least 1,000 hospitalized children died each year simple because they lacked insurance.
They said:" If you take two kids from the same demographic background, the same race, the same gender, the same neighborhood level and the same number of co-morbidness or other illness, the kid without insurance is 60 percent more likely to die in the hospital than the kid in the bed right next to him.
*Insured children where in the hospital on average, for less than a day when they die, compared with a full day for insurance children.

"this study provides further evidence that the need to insurance everyone is a moral issue, not just an economic one".

I learned from this article that it is very important to know the more as possible, about the specific insurance plan that fix with the children, because every plan is different one to another. The questions about children insurance started from newborn child, until the age that the plan coverage. also if the child can be provides for more than one health care group.

Ingold, John. “Colorado Pot Legalization: 30 Questions (and Answers).” - The Denver Post. N.p., n.d. Web. 26 Feb. 2013.

This article is a question and answer interview, answering 30 most common questions asked by Americans. The information provided in this source tells readers that in Colorado there is no license needed to possess marijuana and that possessing or purchasing accessories for marijuana is not illegal. It states that there are certain places where people are allowed to smoke, but they cannot just smoke wherever they want to.Most smokers do it in a private setting like at home or at a friends house or at relatives. A lot of Americans were questioning about the rules and regulations about smoking on university campus and it states that possession on campus is not allowed. In order to smoke weed in Colorado you do not have to be a Colorado resident, if you are in the state it is allowed. Another regulation is that it is qualified illegal to smoke while driving. This information is useful towards our paper because it gives specific details about marijuana use in Colorado and that is beneficial when comparing the specific rules and regulations to California and Arizona. When we are discussing the beneficial components of legalizing marijuana for our economy we will elaborate on the regulation the state of Colorado has on marijuana and how taxing has benefited their state and the specific fact in the source will help.

Morris, M. "10 Arguments for Gun Control." Listverse. N.p., 21 Apr. 2013. Web. 11 June 2014. Americans love their guns but some type of gun control can do them good. by keeping them safer and possibly saving their lives. 10 looks on arguments that support gun control.
10. More Guns Equal More Homicides
Homicides are more likely to happen with easy access to guns. The more guns available the greater chances of a homicide occurring, guns being a risk.
9. More Guns Also Equal More Suicides
Suicides usually happen in the moment. If guns are in reach it causes the difference between the time of death and life. Leaving the decision [gun] in harm’s way will cause great damage. People that own a gun are more likely to commit suicide the ones that don’t own a gun.
8. The Public Supports (some) Gun Control
54% of Americans support strict gun laws. Like a required background check. Still people are big with pro-gun control.
7. Most Massacres Utilize Legal Weapons
Assault weapons and/or high-capacity magazines where used by shooters. Lives could have been saved if a few laws were passed.
6. Banning Them Saves Lives Australia
Bans guns and it works for them. There hasn't been a mass shooting since. The levels of homicide for relations stayed about the same. Meaning they chose of weapon used wasn't switched but killing stopping.
5. The Second Amendment
The second amendment was put in place to protect America not harm its people. The right for guns is just to defend yourself from intruders. If one round of bullets can’t do that then you shouldn't shoot.
4. Assault Weapons Aren’t “Sport”
3. We Have Too Many Already
The ownership of guns in the US is the highest in the world. Americans are more heavily armed then anyone.
2. Arming Everyone Won’t Help
1. Assault Weapons Won’t Save You guns won’t protect you from the government, they are bigger then you.

Hagan, Joseph S., Jr. "It's All about Their Children." Pediatrics, 01 Aug. 2002. Web. 14 June 2014.
In this article Hagan defends a statement made by the Committee on Psychosocial Aspects of Child and Family Health. Some people had their own opinions on gays adopting children. The editor of COPACFH said that although she viewed same sex parenting as untraditional and sinful she defended that no one ever said it was a problem on who raised the children but a matter of the wellbeing of the children. That instead of judging the co-parents try to understand the nontraditional ways they have. And especially as they are all pediatricians that the wellbeing of the child is most important and not a matter of two woman or two men raisins them. This is a good source for my article because this is another controversial issue going on with same sex marriage the fact that they and their children are viewed and treated less and differently because they don’t have a traditional family. The editor goes on to explain that the children of these couples have the same rights as all other American children and that anyone who views them differently or denies gays the right of a child is a smack of intolerance and is inconsistent with the nations discriminations laws.

Health Care Reform Will Create New Jobs. Health Care Legislation, 2012
Rising health care costs affect employment in two basic ways. On the employer side, employer-paid health premiums are a cost of business, just as wages and salaries are. Reducing the growth of health insurance premiums would therefore enable employers to hire more workers, according to economic theory, holding wages and other benefits constant. On the worker side, most workers are willing to give up wage and salary payments in order to receive employer-paid health insurance. When health insurance premiums rise, therefore, workers who value health insurance as part of the job are often willing to accept lower wages in exchange for the higher benefits. Conversely, when costs fall, a large part of the impact will be on higher wage and salary payments. A major effect of health care reform that lowers employer premium growth will therefore be to raise middle class wages.When employment declines in one industry, some workers move out of the workforce entirely, while others take jobs in other industries where health insurance is less prevalent. The analysis in the first study combines both of these effects, but for the purposes of estimating overall job growth associated with health care reform they need to separate out the two.

Amselle, Jorge. "Why We Need." The Daily Caller. N.p., 11 Mar. 2014. Web. 14 June 2014. This article talks about why we need the law “Stand Your Ground”. It explains the why we don’t and why we do. It is saying that we need this law because it proves the legitimacy of people not retreating for danger. Instead, people should not retreat because they can do whatever they want and chose their own fate. Also, it explains how if a man is in a trial, the judges cannot reconsider if the man is telling the truth about being threatened or not because he was using the “Stand Your Ground law” to defend himself and that’s why he is In court now. It says that all the people put in danger have the right to either use lethal force or just run away then think about if they are in danger and if they are, can go back and use lethal force after thinking about it. The article says you don’t have the right to shoot someone if you are in a fight or use deadly forces but you can run instead, yet the law says you can use deadly forces. The people for this law clearly just want it their way and no one else’s way for selfish reasons.

Laura Smith-Spark, Ashley Fantz and Nic Robertson,CNN June 18,

While Iraq's military claimed Wednesday to have driven back militants battling for control of the country, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Congress that the United States has received a request from the Iraq government to use its air power in the conflict.Gen Martin Dempsey, the senior ranking member of the U.S. armed forces, spoke before the Senate Appropriations Committee Wednesday on Capitol Hill in Washington,saying that the United States' "national security interest is to counter where we find them." Concerns over an oil refinery in the Iraqi town of Baiji continued, a key consideration because so much of Iraq's economy depends on its oil production. The country produces 3.3 million barrels per day and has the world's fourth-largest proven crude oil reserves, according to OPEC.
