This article shows how the memebers of congress come from many different backgrounds. It talks about how joining congress is a similar process to attending college. They have to establish good relations with the other members, and learn all the new rules that come along with it.

Ian Overman's curator insight, November 17, 2014 8:29 PM

Here, we learn how similar the orientation for the House of Representatives is to college and how certain new representatives, such Ms. Walters, will have to adapt to a balanced life to tackle their new responsibilities.

Nirvana Solano's comment, November 18, 2014 12:01 AM
This shows that to start off in congress is not such an easy task, which should be said considering these are the people who will debate and decide on how the country is supposed to be run. It is not an easy task.

I think the us shouldn't work with Assad on fighting ISIS. instead, we should try to get the UN into this issue and can be better solved by them. maybe Russia could then help the UN fight ISIS

Andy Nguyen's curator insight, April 16, 2014 4:26 AM

With students becoming more active nowadays on social media, the school administration obviously cannot control what they can't or can post online. While I agree that students should be able to freely express themselves online, I also believe that students cannot post comments that could be considered bullying of people especially teachers and students. But the question still remains: who should regulate these comments? This puts us in an awful predicament. We must find a middle ground in order for this technology age to successfully propagate.. 

Hannah Chua's comment, April 16, 2014 3:11 PM
I also believe that students have the right to say whatever they want about their school or administration. As the articles states, "our society is deprived of their creativity, energy, and new ideas," and social networks provide that outlet for creativity and independent thinking. I do think that there is a certain extent to what you can say about your school. Sometimes people go too far with the things that they say and it can prove detrimental to everyone.
Weiyi Wang's curator insight, April 16, 2014 11:57 PM

I think students should be able to say whatever they want as long as it's within reasonable bounds. This is what the first amendment says after all. No one has the right to limit or take away this privilege. The internet has extended free speech far beyond anything that can be controlled anyways. Imagine how much manpower and money would go into censoring the billions of student online interactions. It is up to the students to determine how to properly and safely exercise their first amendment rights.
