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.
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.
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.
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
Here is a link to my new hub, Basic Human Rights. I did this because its what I think are core human rights for all human beings. It is a great place to start, and apply to all people no matter the age.
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.
The second week is a definite plus for this topic. It will take time to think about ideas, do the research and write something that is of meaning. The subject is endless and so necessary if anything is ever going to change in this world.
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. Have a look
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?
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.
Hmmm... My guess is automatic filters. The ads were disabled on most of our Breast Cancer hubs for Breast Cancer Awareness HubMob, probably for the word "breast". My previous hub on post-op management after mastectomy [did not have the word "breast" in the title] and had ads.
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.
Thanks for your help. It says on my hub I should fix the problem but I don't even know how to do that because I'm not sure what the problem is. I've done other articles on abortion/pro-life issues and have never had this happen.
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.
I work with a Centre for Children's Literature in Bhopal, India, and it has been a part of my everyday experience to see parents thrust books that they feel are appropriate, on their kids. The kids are rarely allowed to choose their own stuff. My hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Letting-children-choose questions this trend and deals with the rights of children to choose between reading and other activities, and their own book, when they feel like reading one.
The title, (which seems to be truncated above), "Human Rights vs. Animal Rights--Is There a Difference?" pretty much says it all. This is a heavy topic, not many will be cheerful and uplifting, I fear, but messages that need to be seen and broadcast.
Thanks for your courage in choice of topic and a platform for educating the masses.
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 ...
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. http://hubpages.com/hub/TheRightsandJud … ietnamVets
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.
