this is related to gov and law because they wished to take out military aid from Egypt due to the massacres that were happening. i don't know what I would do in that situation because two wrongs don't make a right and fighting fire with fire doesn't work either. I think that pulling out military aid could be a beneficial option.
This is related to gov and law because it discusses a decision made by Alabamans Supreme Court that unborn children are indeed CHILDREN. It also mentions how chemicals, such as illegal drugs, can affect the unborn child which is why they made the final decision. I agree with their decision because it's not fair to the child who doesn't have a say in whether or not the mother should be taking these chemicals.

Katie Gilbertson's insight:
This is related to gov&law because of how President Obama is trying to benefit younger education with his new plans. I think it's a good idea to start the children out with education in the best way possible, but if it affects other aspects of education, it concerns me.
This article is related to gov & law because it mentions how important education is in our society. Education is also become more and more common online. This article also discusses various salaries for those involved with education. I think online education is a great option, however, you don't get that personalized time with your professors
This article refers to how in health care the problems may be within the staff and faculty because there are not enough positive moments and too many negatives. Coworkers need to focus on the good things that everyone is doing to work together to improve the workplace. Health care has a possibility of improving if the workplace itself starts to improve.
This article is about how Africa's new law firm is bound to improve economy as well as the need for the lawyers in the area. It is part of gov and law because it is about another country and how they go about working to better their economy and their plans.
China considers Africa as an equal, Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi has said.
Katie Gilbertson's insight:
This article is about how china and Africa are actually very cooperative with each other and have had many dealings with each other without issue. This is related to gov and law because of how it is foreign affairs between countries
This article is all about how Tina turner gave up her US citizenship so she could move in wit her longtime partner. this is related to gov and law because it is an option to give up your American citizenship. For some people, it's expected and others would surprise you.
NRA tries to argue that people ages 18 to 20 years old have a constitutional right to own a gun. Many people disagree since that age is still considered very young. Even if the 2nd amendment should protect that right, it really shouldn't. It's extremely irresponisble to let 18-20 year old citizens, who are barely considered adults, carry around guns. If they aren't responsible enough to be able to drink alcohol, why give them a gun?
This article relates to gov and law because is discusses immigration, primarily unauthorized immigration. It mentions how unauthorized immigration was lower when the economy was in a recession and now it is rising again, possibly related to our economy getting better.
I have long believed that one key, seldom-mentioned aspect for saving megacities is the problem and opportunity of rights-of-way (RoW). Any of these megacities could be vitalized by a process that -- at first sight -- will seem brutal, but that does not have to be. It is the demolition of -- and rebuilding upon -- a 200 meter wide corridor extending from the port, to the urban center, then out to the industrial parks and airport and then countryside.Within this razed band, every major, revitalizing service can then be inserted at very low cost, using simple trenching methods: utilities, sewer systems, water, underground metros and a grand boulevard. There would also be room for new-innovative services like pneumatic tube delivery of goods, eliminating much of the truck traffic that clogs streets.
Katie Gilbertson's insight:
This article discusses a public policy suggestion. For a long time, mega cities have scone crowded and need improvement. They have the right of way (ROW) plan to try to demolish homes an rebuild sewer systems, homes, and the surrounding areas with farmer markets and booths. I think it is a good idea but where would the current residents live? It reminds me of my holly gardens township and their plan of redevelopment. I think they need to truly evaluate their options.
Finding a real online adoption agency that has helpful information is one thing, finding families you don't even know to pawn your child off to is another. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET! The adopting parents also ran into problems with children that were not who they were supposed to be... Maybe you should have thought about that before going online to trade children! This article really irks me because adoption can be such a beautiful thing, but here people are making it a scam and unethical.
In the past year, the people economy made big strides in putting people back where they belong: at the center of their business. Behemoths like Apple and Starbucks, startups like Airbnb and Lyft, and many companies in between like L.L. Bean and Zappos, are all eager to disrupt their corners of the world by putting people--not technology--first.
This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.
This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.
What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.
I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?
This article is related to gov&law because its main point is education all around us and how it has changed over the years. I think it's extremely scary, to be honest, how much education has changed and WILL change. There are pros and cons to all aspects of newer education, but I think the hardest part is always getting the student-teacher relationship since technology seems to be the biggest way to get your points across.
This article discusses ways to continue to make progress in the health care world. There are many options but health care is still going to be expensive. In what ways could we work to reduce the cost of health care and their organizations?
This is about a healthcare advocate that mentions that the key is knowledge. you must be educated to get a good overview on what health care is really about and the financial stresses it may cause. This is an option for both patients and those pursuing a career in healthcare...to be educated on the subject at hand and not rely on your own personal opinions
Voice of America East Africa Law Society Condemns Kenya 'Terrorist' Attack Voice of America The president of the East Africa Law Society (ELS) has sharply condemned the attack by gunmen at a mall in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, over the weekend.
Katie Gilbertson's insight:
This article is related to Africa's foreign affairs. It talks about how they plan to condemn the gunmen who were shooting at an African mall. It shows how their laws are not too much different than ours. Violence is still frowned upon and there will be consequences for it.
This article is about how there are plenty of barriers blocking immigrants from applying for citizenship. They are trying to come up with ways to increase the amount of people who want US citizenship, since only 8% of eligible immigrants apply each year.

This article is related to gov and law because it discusses whether or not rights should be allowed to immigrants of a gay couple. I think that any rights a man and woman have should be given to gays. If we have freedom of religion then we shouldn't base our morals on something a religious group believes.
Barry Searfoss pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and DUI and was sentenced to six to 23 months in jail. Prosecutors say the 42-year-old Coatesville man had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when ...
This article is related to GOV&LAW because a state trooper broke the law when he got behind the wheel 2x the legal drinking limit. He only got around 6 months in jail and I believe he should have received more because he killed a young woman when the car he hit exploded into flames. unbelievable that the one person who should have known better made the mistake no one should ever make.
This is related to GOV&LAW because it is a public policy issue about the Internet. The government is discussing ways to control the Internet. I highly disagree with the Internet going into private hands because I believe the government has enough power over us as is and any more power, especially over something this big, is not a good idea to put into their hands...
