3/20 blog

1) It is more important because men and women who only go through high school education will have fewer cumulative earnings than those from a few decades ago. In the last paragraph of the article, it shows how the cumulative earnings of a person who went through only high school education dropped from $435,000 to $243,000.

2) Better grades and better GPA's through high school lead to better pay later in life. 4,694 men and 5,525 women were surveyed and it was noticed that students with higher GPA's ended up having higher pay in the future.

3) It was strongest for minorities, specifically African American men and Hispanic men. It might be as minorities know that being a minority is going to be an obstacle for getting a job in the future so the minority will work harder in order to get a job that pays well.

3/17 blog

1) More parents can afford to take their kids to college

2) The purpose is how kids are treated in a Los Angeles military school. Also how the rules differ from other schools. Lastly what the student body is made up of and the impact the school has on the community.

3) It's important because with student responsibility students will pay more attention in class. What we could do in South Haven schools to have more student responsibility is be more severe with the consequences of not doing the right thing in class.

1) I do agree that social media should be taken into account when enrolling in a college or trade school. One reason being is that with social media, it can be quickly noticed if that person has the desired level of character to be a part of the college or trade school. Also, the college or trade school will be able to quickly tell how that person feels about specific issues such as religion, race, or sexuality which can also help decide of they have a certain level of character or not.

2) I do agree with the observation that kids are worried more about being a character than having character. I've seen people post really stupid things on social media wich makes them seem like a person with absolutely 0 level of character. I also have posted things on my social media that make me seem like someone with no morals or character wich can affect me going to a college of my choice.

3) There are more than a few ways that the rules of high school help students prepare for the rules for outside of school. One is that an action will have a consequence whether it is negative or positive depends on the action, and example would be that someone fighting would get a detention and someone help clean up the classroom would get a ram ticket. Another way it helps is that high schools give consequence to having a phone out when there shouldn't be one out, employers tend to also have rules against having a phone out at specific times.

1) One career path that interests me is working in the auto body business. one of the aspects that interest me is being able to work on cars and be able to learn skills that I can use to make self-repairs. One of the attributes I have that can help me pursue this career is the willingness to learn more than what I know now.

2) Washtenaw community college has classes on auto body collision repair which can teach me what I need to know on how to paint cars and fix outer damage on a car.

3) in the business of just painting cars, the salary tends to peak at around 50,000 a year while repairing physical damages on a car can bring a yearly salary of 60,000 a year.

1) He is arguing on how massive the sneaker market is and is backing it up with statistics and additional information.

2) The two markets that Nike sells to are the retail market where Nike sells the shoes directly to the buyer. The second market is the re-sell market where consumers hype the show up causing in increase in the price of the shoe.

3) If I were to get into a market I would go into the hoodie market. The reason being is that I have many hoodies to sell and I need more hoodies to wear.

1/6 blog

1) The article "What so wrong with Comic Sans" is an advice column
http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-11582548

2) I believe that the article uses the sequence and order text structure. I believe this because it tells the history of how it was created in order.

3) Wearable technologies was the thing that peaked my interest the most. The reason being is that maybe one day an entire house could be controlled by a single smart watch
