Have you ever had to raise four kids on little to no money while you’re in your mid 70’s? Well this grandma has had to while her daughter dropped off her kids and left them with her. Why would anyone do that to their own mom who took care of them? People should take responsibility for their actions and not put it on others while you have the good time. She should understand the responsibility that comes with kids instead of making her grandma do all the dirty work. So should a grandma have to raise four kids on little to no money?

"A Vision of Students Today" by Michael Weasch is teaching everyone today to try harder and be focused on what really matters because someone is out there trying to take your job and everything you stand for. Most students spend their time in class facebooking or messing around. Why? If people start to form that habbit and students start doing that everywhere then the United States is going to fall behind in everything. For example, technology, The U.S. was ahead of everyone by 1990 when it comes to the computer and etc. but now China and Japan is taking that over. When it comes to school everyone needs to do their best and get our nation ahead in technoly and etc. How hard is it though? When people like myself are just sitting there bored that's what i would do but everyone has to start changing at some point.

"Reasoning Our Way In..." by David Warlick was telling an idea about open notebook science and it looks intresting. It describes a way to do science while having more communication, a rate which the process could progress, and reduce time wasted in failed or repited experiments. Why isn't every campus using this then? Dexel University is using this method and is showing how students are learning more and saving time. If this is true we should have more universities using the method Dexel University is using.

"Comming to a Classroom Near You!" by Admin are describing how teachers let there students watch cartoons while the teachers do their own work as a distraction dissapointed me. Just to stop the students from bugging her? I thought that she could have done something else or have done work on her own time. A little thing like that can ruin a job, that suprised me because it wasn't even that big of a deal. That is what i felt and expressed when i read the article "Comming to a Classroom Near You!" by Admin.

When i was reading "Are You Smarter than a Deputy Prime Minister?" it was actually intresting to me how a fifth grader was smarter than a prime minister. Would our country be better off by being run by fifth graders? It really shocked me how this girl who went to colledge had forgotten all the basic things it would take for a person to rule and it wouldn't suprise me if a normal person actually did good when it came to running the country. I know this sounds ridiculous but seriously what if a person did run the country and did just as good if not better than one of the presidents or senators. I think that when it comes down to it all we need is a good, trusting guy who can run a country.

In the article "The New Literacy" by Clive Thompson it showed difference and similarities between "Quiet gender gap hits Colledge Balance" and Carls Fisch's "Did you Know?". Similarities are that they both involve education, everything uses text to get there point across, and they all involve students/kids. The most important image theese articles are trying to come across is to motivate kids to do their best in school so that they can have a better future. But theyre were some differences like "Did you Know" just showed us facts about the world, while "The New Literacy" told us about the new writing revolution, and "Quiet Gender Balance" just talks about how women are controlling the colledges, men are not going as far as women when it comes to colledge. But what i found out is that everything revolves around education it's like you never escape it no matter how old you are.

I never thought we were teaching a machine untill i saw the video "Machines are using us" by Michael Wesche, It shows that we have been teaching the machines and know that the machines are teaching us. During the presentation it was showing that we create everything on the web, the hyperlinks, words, pictures, everything. All i could think of was how long does it take to post all this information. It just makes me think how big the world is to be comming out with new software we use every six months for the web. How much learning would go into this, the process would take years for someone to pick off where someone lefted. That is how i felt when i was watching "Machines are using us" by Michael Wesche.

When i was reading "Womens body found in car" by the denver post i was shocked and outraged. Why would anyone do something so horrible, I can't imaging this. None diserves this no matter what they did and why aren't the police doing more. All they can do at this is point is just getting a warrant, I believe police should just have the right to investigate if the terms are like in this case. That is the experiece i had when i was reading " Womens body found in car" by the denver post.
