- This articles author interview hundreds of middle class citizens and over 1,200 or the worlds wealthiest people. The author wrote a book about how rich people think and why they think is such a way. In this way, He was able to collect and analyze data for an extended period of time.
- I would like to know the occupations of the people who were interviewed both rich and middle class? Also, How happy each individual is, work can be consuming, too consuming for some people? we are told that he considered rich a millionaire, however, what if someone considers rich to be over $300,000?
- This article is about the recent deaths in Syria and the overall death count during the 4.5 years of their civil war. I have been interested in learning more about the refugee crisis in Eastern Europe which lead me to find more information on it. The article discusses how Syria is getting more and more dangerous and how the refugee crisis could be worse.
- The Chairman if the United Nations panel who is investigating Syria right now did the majority of the research on the death toll and said it was hard to be sure of an exact number. However, the Syrian medical society has been keeping tabs on where individuals are trapped throughout the country and where the highest numbers of death will occur. The physicians for human rights association discovered that there have been almost 300 attacks on hospitals in Syria, all done by pro Assad forces.
- I think my biggest question about this article is how has this been happening for so long without U.S. involvement? I have no doubt that we will get involved, the question is just when. I also am curious to see what the actual death count is and how many individuals will be able to find a safe place to be a refugee.

- This article shows the exploding amount of 3rd through 8th graders in New York that are opting out of Common Core Standardized Testing by school district. I picked this article because Common Core has been met with resistance from mainly affluent families, which would ruin the integrity of the test’s data. Teachers job performance ratings are based in part on these standardized tests and they are used to identify achievement gaps throughout the state as well.
- The data was collected from the New York State Education Department.
- Why are more affluent people in New York opting out of these standardized tests than those from disadvantaged communities? How is this legal if federal law requires 95% participation in Common Core standardized testing?
Bubonic plague reported in Michigan.
— CNN Breaking News (@cnnbrk) September 14, 2015
- This article explains that another American has come down with “the plague”. The affected individual live in North Michigan however it is believed that the individual contracted the plague from Colorado. Colorado being the city that has been hit the hardest by the the plague this year. I choose this article because i think it is important to be aware of the plagues and diseases that can affect us or people around us. I strongly encourage you to watch the video attached to the article for a greater understand of what the plague is.
- The article itself is a product of CNN Breaking news. CNN’s information came the the Michigan department of Health and Human services and the Center of Disease Control and Prevention as stated sources in the article.
- Do you find it important to be educated on plagues and diseases even if they aren’t common or in your area? Do you think more people being educated on the plague will benefit us in the long run?

- This article examines the past 15 drives for the tie or go ahead Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has had against the Green Bay Packers. I chose it because it reflects on my pessimistic attitude I have about my favorite team this season.
- The article gathered quantitative data of 7 fourth quarters Jay Cutler attempted to lead the team to tie or win against the Green Bay Packers since he has been the first string quarterback for the Chicago Bears. There were only a specified amount of results that could’ve happened, which are a turnover, touchdown, field goal, interception, or end to a game.
- At the tail end of the presentation slide, it gives overall statistics of the frequency of field goals, interceptions, turnovers, punts, and end of games. They list field goals as a positive, which it can be, but a field goal in the first 4th quarter game did not grant the Bears a win for that game; which confuses me on what the article was attempting to accomplish.
These are the states most and least likely to take in refugees http://t.co/FBAUgJ1iO9
— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) September 14, 2015
- The article discusses the states with the most and least refugees in America. It also shows where refugees are fleeing from and which states they are settling in. I chose this article because where I’m from there is a high population of refugees from Somalia where I am from in Minnesota, so I have noticed this issue first hand.
- The article uses data from the US Office of Refugee and Resettlement, US Department of State, Bureau of population, refugees and migration, and the US department of homeland security. Other sources include state departments who work with placement agencies to help locate new homes for refugees.
- I wish the article would have described more reasons why citizens are leaving and why some states have higher percentages than others.
- This article is about the influx of refugees in Erope, and the creation of the Euro, and the similarities between the two situations; such as they’re both caused by Europe’s lack of preparedness before embarking on both endeavors, and that they’re both being pushed back by mainly eastern block countries such as Hungary.
- The article is written by Reuters’ Hugo Dixon, but there are no sources for information stated in the article, which leaves the reader to speculate how accurate or biased the info may be.
- According to the article, European governments were supposed to “limit their debts” to 60% of GDP; however last year the zone’s debt averaged 92%. How exactly were these countries supposed to “limit their debts”, especially at a time like this in Europe?
