It is a test that can help tie criminals to crimes, and helps keep the community safe. One year later, KREM 2 News checked back to see how SPD had ...
Reilly's insight:

I am glad that police officers are testing guns for our safety and checking to see if they link to any other crimes. I did not know they did that. I also learned that some areas have not been doing so consistently. Checking these guns is a good idea because it may solve an unsolved murder. I find murder cases interesting, that’s why I watch so much CSI and Criminal Minds, I love science and research so maybe a good job would be testing these guns and trying to link them to unsolved crimes or cases.

Tim Hegedus is a theater buff. He grew up loving musicals, participating in high school plays and visiting New York City to catch Broadway shows.
Reilly's insight:

Considering that more than 30% of grads did not pick the major that went along with their interests was helpful. That means I am not limited to majors due to my interests, I have more to choose from. When I am looking at majors, I am going to look at some that do not follow my interests exactly. I am glad that I learned a lot of people have done this. But I also need to keep in mind that I need to plan according to my skills and passions.

Are there teaching-focused positions that include a professional salary, benefits, reasonable working conditions, and the equanimity that can come from job security?
Reilly's insight:

I found this very interesting because my sister goes to Westmont in Santa Barbara, and she is majoring in Biochemistry. She always wanted to be a Doctor but recently she has been thinking about teaching Biology or Chemistry in a College. I thought she was crazy because she could make more money and be happier as a Doctor. This helped me understand why she would want to teach and how it is still a good job. After reading about Natalie Kuldell becoming a teacher after researching, I noticed how big of an impact this teacher has made. She starter the nonprofit organization BioBuilder and is even showing high school teachers how to use it.  Maybe my sister is on the right track!
