In the article "Health Care Issues" by, they explain reasons why America's health care issues are very bad. They explain how health care is "broken." They also ask people to tell their own story on health care issues. This is important to the world because we can try to prevent it from happening to other countries. This is important to education because students might need to research health care or medical issues. This is important to me because I have a health care action plan and I could possibly lose it. I believe that the government should take immediate action to fix health care problems.

In the article "Obama pitches health care plan to Grand Junction town hall" written by Kieran Nicholson, explains President Obama's plan to repair health care issues. Obama said "We are going to fix it when we pass health insurance reform this year." Obama discusses problems with health car that will show up in the future. This is important to the U.S because people who really need heath care will begin to lose their health care very rapidly. This is important to education because there could be a college student going in to a health care business. This is important to me because I don't want my family or me to lose our health care. This rapid increase in health loss, if not solved, will create problems between the people and the government.

In my presumption, the usage of laptops in the LPS district has a dramatic effect on students and teachers. Students who bring their laptops are able to take notes, write essays, use Blogger for assignments, and take it home to work on or bring it to school to turn in. The teachers who bring their laptops in can give notes to the students and make the notes at school or at home, add grades, update teacher pages, or even show what the homework is for that day or week. This is important to education because students, scientists, and every day workers use laptops to do assignment, blog, write notes, or write reports. This is important to the world because it allows people from other countries to connect with each other. This is important to me because I have homework assignments to do and a laptop makes things easier. I believe that laptops are an essential key in high school because there are multiple assignments online and essays that need to be typed.

In the article "RTD bus runs red light, hits 3 cars" by Howard Pankratz explains how an RTD bus at Florida Avenue ran a red light causing a major accident. Although the injuries weren't severe, I believe that the bus driver should have his or her license taken away and lose his or her job at RTD for reckless driving. This is important to education because people could try and find ways to improve the safety of drivers and pedestrians. This is important to the world because people need to know that there are crazy drivers all over the place. This is important to me because I'll be driving very soon and it shows the need for caution no matter who is driving on the streets.
