HubMob Weekly Topic: Our Rights. Human, civil and animal rights

  1. Princessa profile image86
    Princessaposted 6 years ago

    Hello, this month we are having a slight change in our weekly HubMob to try to accommodate our time to be able to continue writing great content hubs but also to give us some extra time to prepare for the holiday season.  That is why in December our weekly topics are going to be "alive" for two weeks in a row, to allow you that extra time to fit everything in. 

    This and next week we are going to be writing about a very important subject: Rights.  I mean, human rights, civil rights and even animal rights. 

    http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv19/wyanjen/HubMob/rights.jpg


    The third week of January the USA will be celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, to mark the birth and works of King.  Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?" Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their communities.  In HubPages, Hubbers from around the world will answer this question writing about human, civil and animal rights.  Information is one of the first steps towards solving problems and that is why we have chosen this topic, to inform the world about their rights to help create solutions. 

    To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:

    1.  START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the "Answer this Question" green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/90146/hubm … rights?rss
    For more information on how to add the RSS feed to your hub you can click here

    4. Add the HubMob graphic http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv19 … rights.jpg to your hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week

    5. Categorize: Please make sure you categorize your hub according to your chosen topic. 

    6. After you publish your Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why. 

    So, What are you doing for others?

      Not giving the homeless therapy or any assistance beyond substance and protection is a paradox. As numbers of homeless get offered help in the form of food, housing, and medicine there is no emotional or mental support given. To some agencies, the phrase “if you give a man a fish you will have fed him for a day, if you teach a man to fish you will have fed him for a lifetime,” applies to the homeless situation as well.

      I have had a disquitening week our cultural leaders have gone all out and trampled over girls' rights and continue to practice female genital mutilation.

      The latest was done last week and 120 girls were circumcised in this event. It is an act that activists are reacting to by wearing white bands for the next 10 days a form of protest. Participate if you will.

      Be blessed By Your Act!

      I did this because I have seen how it helps people first hand.  First, with my family, then with friends, then as a volunteer.  Its a "right" that often, people aren't thinking about.

      I have posted a hub already for this weeks topic, which I love by the way!  I have another hub, that is on the same topic.  What are the rules or guidelines for doing multiple hubs for the weekly topic, if any?  I was wondering if we can put two in or not? I thought I had seen it done before, but didn't know if it was officially ok?  Thanks  smile

      great topic idea.  I'll be sure to contribute to this one for sure.  Hey princessa, have you and the hubmob ever thought about doing topics based on hanukah, ramadon, and kwanza by any chance?  I just figuered since those holidays are also around december and we've already covered christmas, then maybe it might be interesting idea to make some hubmob topics about those too.  just suggesting that's all.  I for one would love to do a hanukah hub for the hubmob, as i have just the perfect videos I could use for it.

        Thanks for the suggestion.  We are always open to ideas and we like to hear about what you would like to be writing about.

        Unfortunately we have all of December and January covered with topics.  So it will need to wait until next year, probably october/november to start gaining views for the main dates in December.

        If you have any other suggestions or ideas for future topics, please let us know. Very cute avatar BTW!

      Hi guys, new to this as you may notice I posted a "hubmob" 13 months and definite discredit is due for my tardiness!

      This is a topic, I love and I have lots of theories, I guess that is mostly how I will write peppering them with my life experience (sometimes short on the pepper and heavy on the theory!)

      I definitely am going to work on an article to post before the deadline!

      Mostly my main theory is on Human rights, civil, and animal is that they are so important and nobody has the right to take those away in any fashion.

      It is a powerful insight into the controversial topic about how assisted suicide is treated and whether by it being illegal, it is violating human rights. It contains some real life stories which are extremely touching.

      Assisted suicide is against the law. The person suffring is not in a good state of mind if they think it is ok. How would anyone know that was what the dead person wanted if they are dead and didn't do it themself?

      1. Matthew Rogerson profile image59
        Matthew Rogersonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        well there are various legally binding documents which once signed, states that the individual is fully aware that what they are going to do is their own responsibility.
        People who seek assisted suicide can often be in perfectly normal states of mind, however they don't wish to continue their lives in a state which they consider to be undesirable. You essentially just made it out that the individual in question doesn't get an opinion on the matter. I personally struggle to reach a final view on the topic, however I have appreciated both sides of the argument in my hub, unlike you have just done there.

        That said, I'd be interested to know what the filters picked up on in your hub.  I think I'll elevate this to Simone.

            Hahaa- you've got my work patterns down cold, rmcrayne!  Sorry for the delayed response. 
            Cari Jean - ads were disabled on that Hub because some of the content is not quite AdSense friendly and we want to make sure that we adhere perfectly to AdSense standards.  Hubs on pro-life policy tend to be alright, which probably explains why other Hubs you've written on the general subject are OK, however it's a rather fine line, and discussions explicitly centering on abortion aren't in the AdSense Happy Zone of Happiness. 
            Sorry Cari Jean - it's nothing personal against the Hub - it's just a matter of advertisers not really wanting to show up on articles discussing such heated and controversial topics.

      Is 2000 words too long for a hub? I have a 2000 word paper I wrote at uni about privacy rights for public figures. I don't really want to split it into two hubs and I'm finding it difficult to cut down. But it seems a bit too long ...

      1. rmcrayne profile image94
        rmcrayneposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        It's not too long at all.  A lot of veteran hubbers who once aimed for an average of 800 to 1200 words are moving in the direction of longer hubs, 1500-2000. 

        Sounds like this might also be ideal for "Top of the Class".  Check out the link below before you choose (HubMob vs Top of the Class):

          I never count words.  I just write my piece, and stop when I reach the end.  Sometimes it's very short, sometimes it's very long.  Depends on the topic and the angle I've chosen.

      Already submitted it for HubMob before I saw your post rmcrayne, I've been posting a lot of my student papers so perhaps a different one can go for Top of the Class. Do you apply to Top of the Class, like you do for HubMob, or do you just get randomly picked?

      I have no idea if I did this right and am probably too late but here is my hub on Vietnam Vets. There is a possiblity it may get flagged due to its content, but I thought it was worth sharing. Please let me know what you think.

      Hope it is not too late for my second contribution to the HubMob. This is an important issue in Australia following a government intervention in 2007. It looks at the progress or lack of progress for living conditions of the indigenous Australian since the intervention.
