The article I read was about the recall of Toyota vehicles which is slowly destroying the industry of Toyota. Toyota has recently recalled 2.3 million vehicles because they had a acceleration pedal that would STICK to the floor when you pressed on it. People were found to be driving and soon, they couldn't stop. This caused crashes and the fear of buying cars from Toyota. If Toyota loses as many customers as they have cars, they will be in big trouble with their business because they will lose a whole lot more money. if 2.3 million stop buying cars for $18,000 that's $414,000,000,000 dollars! If one company loses that, their company will rocket into the wrong direction.

My english class is a laptop class which we all feel we have benefitted from in these past few semesters. Now that we have laptops the class can be finished much faster because most of the students are best at typing because they are fast with typing. This even means we have spellcheck and other tools to help us better ourselves in writing. We can check everything that we type up. For a lot of students like myself, we have horrible handwriting. If we have computers we can type up all of our work and this eliminates the problem of legibility.
Now, with laptops I am so used to the carelessness of handwriting and spelling which isn't exactly good but it also isn't to worry about since most of todays average work is done on the computer. Since I have become so careless, my teacher would keep getting on me on making my handwriting better and I am sure he/she would be very upset with my writing.
Laptops should be put in classes because this is technology that willl be everywhere in this changing world anyway.

I read an article today called "Bear poacher headed to prison" by the associated press and it was saying that a man had killed a bear and is now being sent to prison. This is good because this man has probably upset the animal kingdom and was rude and killed their friend who was a bear. If this man is bad to nature on average, it may add up over time and he will cause the animals to become mad at humans and they will all group up and soon overrun the human race. People like this should not be so bad to nature because it is the beauty that is enjoyed by others.

I read an article today about the "Sixth Sense" which was telling us about a new machine called the "Sixth Sense" and what it can do for us all as humans. This is a device that hangs around your neck and can be used to do anything from call a friend, to find out all the information in the world about a random stranger on the street. This is a good and bad thing that is coming with this device. The good side is it will make life so much easier because it is all available literally at our fingertips. Depending on the shape you make your fingers, it tells the device what to do. If you hold your hand flat, it will put a keyboard on your palm and you can call your friends. Which would be so simple. But if you look at a random stranger, you can pull of their facebook, myspace, email address, everything. Right there in front of you in one second. This can mean someone who may be a very bad person may know everything about you in one second. You better watch what you post online, you never know who may see it!

In the article "No surprise: Snow coming back again on Sunday" this states that Colorado may be getting much more snow coming which relates to all of us. For some, it relates because we don't like snow. But for most of us, it means SNOWBOARDING! (Or skiing....) I want to get a few more times in for snowboarding! And this snow means I may be able to go snowboarding a few more times before this season is up! Thank you, Lords on Snow.

I happened upon a story today called "Company recalls some granola bars sold in Colo." which was set by The Associated Press which stated that the company Lovin Oven has had to call back some granola bars because they were found to have salmonella. This is important to me because personally, I enjoy a granola bar every now and then. And I may now base which granola bars I but off this. This will have an affect on the company as far as their sales. They may have more of an issue with selling foods now if they are out of business because of this problem of having problems with their granola bars.

I read an article today called "The U.S. National Debt and How It Got So Big" by Kimberly Amadeo and this was showing how the US debt was becoming such a big issue. Predictions show that by about 2020 the US debt will be around 23.1 trillion dollars of debt (from 13 Trillion and Counting) as of 3:26:11 the debt is $12,377,549,228,897 and counting. (National Debt Clock) which means we own that much money to mainly the Chinese since they are our main source of borrowing. This is not making China happy. This is a problem that has crept up on us and it must soon be fixed. If it is not fixed soon, we will be in a bigger problem than we already are. Over the course of 1 minute (3:27:55) the debt is now $12,377,554,968,596. That is an extra $5,739,699. This means we go more than $1,000 in debt every second, adding up to more than 1 Million dollars every minute. This numbers must be changed.
