The article by Garrison Kellior about texting was interesting. I believe that young people are losing their people skills and it makes it hard when you're like me and dont have a phone, especially in a school like arapahoe where kids are very privileged compared to what im used to. people expect you to text them or get ahold of them with a phone. When i get my phone i will be paying for it so it'll be a very treasured thing. I digress, the social skills of people in general have gotten worse i feel as if confrontation has become a taboo subject for alot of people. it gets annoying knowing that people are constantly talking behind people's backs over their phones. This relates to the world because young people all over are becoming less sociable. this relates to education because kids eventually will need to learn how to interact with other people face to face. This relates to me, because not having a phone, i don't constantly text people and when people constantly have their heads in a phone it bothers me.

boys are falling behind in school because the educational system is too advanced they make us learn too fast. I find it hard to learn the way we're taught here at school. things aren't explained we kinda have to guess on how to do things. i feel like they need to figure out how to teach us in a better way so that we don't feel discouraged. I feel discouraged on a daily basis because i feel like i try in school, yet i make bad grades. This relates to the world because it's effecting our educational system. this relates to me because it's effecting me.

Recently a school in Mississippi canceled their prom because a girl wanted to bring her girl friend and also wear a tuxedo. This shows the intolerance still plaguing our country. the fact that they had to cancel an entire prom because of her sexual stance and choice of attire i believe is quite ridiculous.

This relates to education, because schools shouldn't be discrimitory against people's sexual stance. This relates to the world because discrimination is still plaguing our communities and world. This relates to me because some of my old friends and some of my family is gay, and it really pisses me off when people can't see just another person. Too many people see color or that somebody is different.

I read about Iranian homosexuals seeking refuge in turkey. Turkey doesn't require Iranians to carry a visa in Turkey. Since being gay is punishable by death in Iran many gays flee through Turkey. There is one house in Turkey where some homosexuals stay and leave as they need. Even in Turkey where the people are escaping extremist persecution people still knock out the windows of the house where they live. This relates to me because many friends of mine are gay. This relates to education because, when more countries develop and more people are educated tollerance will come with that. this relates to the world because it happens every day in many places.

For pln 17 i watched a video one of my friends who is a music promoter and producer made. The video is called Choose Your Chemicals by _-=O=-_ (or Darren Lyman). The video is about chemicals in food and how they effect industry. For example organic refers to having carbon products in it, this means any form of carbon has to make up at least 80% of the food. This can effect our diet negatively just like many other foods can effect our diet negatively.

For my free choice I looked up the most common subjects argued about. The most common subject is religion. People argue about religion more than other subjects, also the subject of divinity has been fought over and argued about for many years. Another subject that is commonly argued about today is gay marriage. The argument of rights for the gay community has been argued about between religious groups, political groups, and activist groups alike. The other most commonly argued about subject is abortion. People today argue about the legality, and morality of abotion all the time. Again these arguments are commonly argued about between religious, political, and activist groups. these arguements relate to me because i have encountered people who belive differently than me on these subjects. its important to know what you're talking about and what you belive

i read an article about the westboro baptist church which is not a church but a hate group. They are visiting Denver schools, including pamona and stanley lake high schools, which are very close to my house. I live about ten blocks from pamona and about twenty from stanley lake. I have talked to one of my good friends who goes there, and students may riot. The westboro church have no idea who or what they're messing with. The students of pamona and stanley lake won't put up with these moronic behaviors. I know plenty of people from both schools who have said that they are not above rioting or fighting these people because of they're hate for people like me and my friends especially.
