The Ice Bucket Challenge is an activity that consists of a person dumping a bucket of ice cold water over their heads.</p><p>As silly as this might sound to some, the reason behind this is to raise public awareness on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrigs disease.</p><p>ALS is a rapidly progressive and fatal neurological disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This results in difficulty breathing, swallowing, speaking and the ability to control voluntary muscle movement.</p><p>Many of us cannot begin to fathom the thought of what people with ALS must be going through or feeling, knowing that their life expectancy can average from two to five years from the time of diagnosis.</p><p>One set of rules for the Ice Bucket Challenge is that a person must either donate $100 to an ALS charity of their choice or dump a bucket of ice cold water over their heads.</p><p>From there, they must nominate other people to do the challenge, which they have 24 hours to complete. In the recent months, the Ice Bucket Challenge has become increasingly popular not just amongst people but with celebrities, politicians and athletes. Famous figures such as Justin Timberlake, Tom Cruise, Tina Fey and Will Smith are performing the challenge and then posting on social media, which is why it is no surprise that various people have jumped on the bandwagon to do the same. However, some celebrities have opted out after being challenged. Zachary Quinto declined the challenge as he mentioned that California was going through a drought and the need for clean water in developing countries. Pamela Anderson also opted out, stating that she did not approve of the experimentation on animals for ALS research. Carey Hart refused to do the challenge as he found it annoying that people were obsessed with the challenge and forgetting the real reason behind it. In less than one month alone since the trend went viral, the ALS Association </p><p>has raised over $41.8 million in hopes of finding a cure for the estimated 5,600 people in the United States who are diagnosed with ALS each year. The ALSA has currently raised $100 million in total. An article was recently released on www.vox.com with a statistics chart from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that showed the difference between money raised for a disease and which disease caused the most deaths in the U.S. ALS was one of the top four to raise the most money for the cause yet it was at the bottom of the list for most deaths, with heart disease being number one. The chart also shows that more people die of diabetes or from suicide than ALS, yet funding for diabetes and suicide are at the last bottom of the list. Should charities for heart disease, diabetes or suicide prevention create their own trend to raise more awareness and funds for research? Will this help them get noticed by people and cause an incline in donations? It will always be considered humane and generous to donate to any charity and that is what people need to consider: to give without an incentive. Just donate. Whether it is for the funding of ALS research or another disease that people will battle. Because if you are pouring a bucket of ice cold water over your head just so you can post the video on YouTube, Facebook or Twitter and not donating, then what is the point you are trying to make? It is unfortunate that one day many people will look back and reminisce on the Ice Bucket Challenge and categorize it in pop culture under the same trend as the Harlem Shake or YOLO instead of what it was really trying to signify.</p><p>Is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge truly raising awareness or just another bandwagon social media trend?</p><p>Alene Masse is a Communications - Journalism major at Cal State Fullerton.</p><p>Photo courtesy of NBC Universal/ Getty ImagesThe plunge: Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon participates in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge along with other celebrities on his show. </p><p>ALENE MASSESpecial to the Hornet</p><p>One of the greatest rights of being in the U.S. is having the right to </p><p>freedom of speech. However, there needs to be a line drawn between fact and opinion in the classroom.</p><p>Everyone has the right to voice their own opinions in the classroom but the educators and professors should not state their personal views as fact unless supported by evidence. </p><p>If one is to express a certain thought that is not factual, they should disclaim it as their personal view. </p><p>When a professor expresses something to the class that is of their belief but states it as evidential, it should not be permitted within the learning environment. </p><p>One example is of a professor indicating a U.S. president as being an idiot during the course of teaching a lesson. Educators as such are in a work field that involves restrictions; which includes the proper use of oral language coming from a professional unbiased stand </p><p>point. Within the college environment, there is a certain presence that students are no longer children but that does not mean those students are no longer sensitive to their beliefs.The college classroom is an </p><p>environment of adults with adult point of views. When a professor makes the choice to completely overlook the sensitivity of their students, that is demeaning.</p><p>Students are paying to get a proper education from the employees and if certain professors choose to ignore performing with unbiased professionalism, simply to express themselves or try to make a point, that is not right. </p><p>Students have the same rights as their educators and there is no excuse for any person to degrade another simply due to contradicting opinions.</p><p>Having freedom of speech, does not mean there needs to be a negative environment within a learning atmosphere. </p><p>Although classrooms should include personal expression and free speech, those beliefs need to remain disclosed as opinions unless it includes evidential support.</p><p>COUNTERPOINTFPOINT Freedom of speech in the </p><p>classroom is something that is very important. Students and faculty alike should feel safe and comfortable enough to express their own opinions on subject matters that is relevant to the class. </p><p>The best way to learn something is to talk it out, get ideas from one other and then do research on your own. </p><p>All professors are not created equal. Some are more vocal on their opinions on the subject matter that they are teaching than others. But are they in the wrong? No. </p><p>If a student doesnt agree or are offended by what they are saying, the great thing about college is that one can just get up and leave, speak up or drop the class.</p><p>Youre paying for your education. You dont have to hire that professor if you dont agree with what they have to say.</p><p>Professors who are more out spoken, especially giving insight to what they believe is critical to the learning curve. They are masters at what they teach and most of the time, know what students can and cannot handle. The shock factor works wonders when it comes to opening up possibilities for another way of </p><p>thinking. An instructor </p><p>opens up conversation by stating what they believe, which opens up thought process from others and then a discussion. </p><p>The professor sets up their classroom with their opinion which opens up gateways to learning what the other students think. The quiet ones may be too shy to join in on discussions but it doesnt mean that they are not taking in the environment and forming their own thoughts and opinions on the subject. </p><p>There should be a censorship when it comes...</p></li></ul>
