This was so intersting! Apparently, when the funeral was going on there was a guy up on stage next to the podium. Everyone just assumed that he was supposed to Sinlaugunage. But he didn't, he did random hand movements. The question for me is: Why is he up there? Do they have any seruity at all? Is there a launguage Afrain people are speaking and we don"t even know? This coul dbe a big problem and the US and more countries should looking into this!

Hackers Compromise 2 Million Facebook, Twitter and Gmail Accounts | Current Events | Scoop.it
“ More than 2 million accounts have been compromised from popular sites such as Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.”

Sarah Hibbeln's insight:
This topic was about how 2 million user for Facebook accounts have been hacked. It's unbelievable that more than 2 million people have been hacked. Who would want to hack into someone's Facebook account? My answer to that is they have no life. And they want to start trouble. From what I have heard it is illegal. It's more than Facebook, it's Google, Yahoo, and Twitter. You just have to be careful on online.

This was cool!! It talked about if  your children should play football. What I got from it was football is in the top 3 most concussion sports! This kid was 4 years old and gave 4 or 5 kids a concussion or knocked them out. If I was the mother, if my child hit someone to the ground or knocked them out. I would get up and walk myself down there grab him and leave. Not cheer on for the little kid to do it again, like in the article. This article intersted me and is a good life lesson article.

“ From the Ngram Viewer to Google Dart, check out some of these lesser-known Google applications.”
Via Tiaan Jonker
Sarah Hibbeln's insight:
This topic was very cool. It shows that you can do way more on Google than you think. You can watch how many users are on Google, how many people watch this videos on charts and more. It is a innovation that a lot of people didn't know about. Now that I know about it, I can do so much more. I think they need to tell more people about it. It is now way more helpful for me and probably for a lot of other people. I think Google can go very far with their business and should keep it going.

Robot helps autistic children develop social skills

Robot helps autistic children develop social skills | Current Events | Scoop.it
“ Meet Russell. His lack of human emotions makes him an ideal conversation partner for non-communicative kids”
Via Josué Cardona
Sarah Hibbeln's insight:
This was a interesting topic for me! It's weird how autistic kids can learn and interact with robots and video games the best. I also think that the robot in the picture above is a little scary. But it seems that the kids don't notice or even think like that, because they learn best from the robot. This could take things to a new portion and is a new innovation. It could open new ideas and people would be able to help autistic kids even more. The robot name is Russell and he has lack of emotions which makes a good conversation partner. Especially for non-communicative kids. I love this idea and I hope it helps a lot of kids!
