In the article "Boulder high schoolers mix it up over a marijuana deal gone bad" by Howard Pankratz what matters is that high schoolers are getting involved in illegal drugs. Also that they want it so bad that they will get in a fight because they cant get it. Police say that the dealer put the buyer in a choke hold until he gave him his money. So this goes to show that all drugs involve are violence and cheating people out of there money. I think that this is something that needs to be fixed becasue these kids are risking there lives to get the drugs and also with the drugs. This is an issue that needs to be solved or more and more of our teens will die from it.

In the article "Pitkin investigating booby trap left on trail for bicyclists" by an anomuse writer of The Denver Post what matters is that someone tried to hurt people that were bicycling and trying to have fun. This is scary that someone is trying to choke someone for what ever reason and really hurt someone. Luckily two people found it before someone got hurt cops have looked into it and are going to press charges if they can find the person who did it. Another thing to consider is that what if someone triggered this and had a baby with them or a young child and both of them died. I think that this is a vile act and if these people get caught they should faceserious cahrges for it.

In the article " Secertery at Denver charged in duct taping of boy" by Joey Bunch what matters is that teachers are resorting to abuse because of the child's behavior in class. The mom of the child agreed with the charges ans hopes that the school district will learn from it. Also what matters is that schools are hiring such people that will resort to abuse when angry. I think that it is important that teachers can control their angry and not take it out on their students.

In the article “Deal reached on delaying raises for Denver deputies” by Christopher N. Osher, what matters the most is that the men and women that protect the city of Denver get better pay. I think that it is very important that people that risk their life to protect others get a good pay. If they did not get paid enough many, people could have quit because of the low pay. The deputies got received a 20,000 dollar pay raise annually and that is a great pay raise for the men and women who protect the city of Denver.
In the article "Our Googley advice to students: Major in learning" by Google Blog, what matters is that google is becoming more and more advanced every year. I can relate this to Micheal Weschs video "The Machines are using us" because in his video he says that computers learn from us every time we use them. Also there are many characteristics that state how important google and its ideals are to the world. One thing that i thought was interesting was that education never stops no matter how old you are, so learn how to get a good education at a young age and you will succed better in later in your life.

In the article "Rigor Redefined" by Tony Wagner what matters is that schools are not preparing students for the 21st century and what that will bring for them. This may not allow students to get jobs which will lead to a lot of students not being able to live anywhere. The way that students are being schooled is not all correct and it should be changed. I can relate to this because my English teacher wants to teach me very well so that i know everything that i can which i appreciate a lot. I hope that things will change and i will get a great education and succeed in life and have a great job.

I disagree with this article “Key Board Vs. Pen” by Virginia Berninger because when I write with pen and paper I turn in horrible work, but if I were to do my work on a computer I do a lot better work. Also my work is sloppy and messy with pen and paper so I get graded down on that but on a computer your work is neat and nice looking. I do not spell things well and so a computer helps me with that and also to look up words on the internet. With a computer you can email your work or put it on a jump drive which makes your work easier to transport so it does not get crumpled or ripped until I need to print it. It is also very helpful for revisions because on paper there is just a bunch of stuff thrown onto the page with computers you can just go through erase and put in new stuff.

In the article "Footprints in the Digital Age" by Will Richardson what matters is that if you are a very good hard worker and do a lot of good things but no one know's until they find out. So in a digital footprint you can hurt your future or help your future or present so if you use the computer in a good way than you can benifit from that. What also matters is that younger kids need to be more informed about what technology can do to their present and future.
