On the ESPN blog there was an article named "South Carolina celebration cost" by the Associated Press is talking about when the South Carolina Gamecocks men's basketball team playing the top team Kentucky at home. South Carolina beat Kentucky the best team in college basketball and the students of the Gamecocks rushed the court in celebration to enjoy the win over the number one team. The students caused lots of damages and a 25,000 fine was given to the athletic department of South Carolina university. This matters to me because I hate when this happens because people can get hurt and its dangerous for the players and coaches. How to fix this is to hire more security around the court and enforce more fine to stop this.

The Internet is one of the most power full things on the face of the planet and it changed how we learn information and how we communicate with friends. The facts that the Internet brings are interesting information that we will never know because we do not intervene with it in normal life; this makes me so much smarter than if i did not have Internet. Also with the Internet it allows us to talk to friends when they do not have phones, I like that because a lot of the time for me my friends are on the computer more than they're by their phones so it helps me out a lot. The Internet changed these two things the most for me because that is mostly why i use the Internet.
Wow, is all I can say about the situation in Haiti because the damage is so bad and the devastation that it has caused to the native people.I got an article named "Haiti's absent leader doesn't like to talk at all" from MSNBC asking the question: where has he been? This natural disaster has brought much sadness, and it has affected many of the people in America like Samuel Dalembert. Samuel is a professional basketball player who has been personally affected by the earthquake through the death of several family members. The main thing on my mind concerning the tragedy is where is the leadership of the government? They haven't done anything to help their citizens. I know it is hard, but you do get payed to get things fixed in your country so they need to start doing something and quick. This matters to me because I feel really sorry for everyone that was effected by the earthquake, I saw on CNN that a child was dragged out of a crushed building and he had been there for eight days with no food and no water.

In my Language Arts we got to chose a topic about injustices in the world and and I chose to do mine on how the college football system is unfair because it really dose not chose the best team. Many important people have spoken out against this like the president and lots of politicians; republican and democratic. You know its a big topic when those two parties agree on it. This matters to me because I love to watch college football and I am a big fan of the rankings but when it comes down to the end of the season it becomes unfair because sometimes the best teams never vs. each other and I don't like that. How I would fix this is by creating a playoff system between the top 16 teams so there can really be a champion.
