Mitchell Forrest Enerson's insight:

It should be important for our government to do a lot of research into the  learning of the young kids. They are one day going to run our country and should be educated the best they can. It'll be great to see how education forma around the new technology available. There is no reason the government should allow any textbooks to be printed anymore.

It's interesting to read about "flipped classroom" learning because we have already made the switch and can see how our results relate to other cities results. I think this form of learning will become extremely popular in the next few years.
Lakin's curator insight, May 14, 2014 12:41 PM

This is related to government and law because it is a public policy issue about should the classrooms be flipped. It shows that kids are improving from learning on videos online outside of school. It then allows teachers to focus more on critical thinking and projects for the kids. I think that they shouldn't allow every teacher to have this option because some might take advantage of this and sit and play on there computer all day. Do you think every classroom should switch to online videos?

 

Reed Klunder 's comment, May 15, 2014 3:41 PM
I personally don't agree with the flipped classroom. From personal experience I noticed that I don't learn as well because I get too distracted and bored easily. It might work for some kids but half the time I forget to watch the videos and end up not doing well. Everyone has a different way of learning. A teacher is supposed to teach so why watch a video that will distract you the whole time?

What it is basically saying is that you need to carry yourself appropriately online. It is the same as how you would act in school or a normal setting. It's related to the government because it shows that the government will treat what you do online just as they treat you for your actions in person.

Massachusetts seeks 10-year ban on gas fracking after series of Texas quakes

Massachusetts seeks 10-year ban on gas fracking after series of Texas quakes | Gov & Law - Mitchell Enerson | Scoop.it
An environmental committee at Massachusetts Statehouse has approved a bill, imposing a 10-year ban on fracking for natural gas. The move comes as a wave of earthquakes in Texas has raised new concerns over the controversial drilling technique.

Via Alison D. Gilbert, naknuts37
Mitchell Forrest Enerson's insight:

A break from fracking sounds like a good idea as fracking needs to be controlled. As long as this ban doesn't just push it to the side for ten years I think it is a great idea to stop it all together until it is resolved in a good manner. Fracking is a good industry but it is causeing plenty of damage to our environment.

This article talks about how a committee in a Massachusetts statehouse approved a bill that would put a 10-year ban on fracking for natural gas. Why this relates to gov and law is because fracking is one of the public policies. The bill is meant to protect the drinking water from contamination that happens during fracking.

In response to naknuts37:

This article talks about a 10-year ban on fracking natural gas in Massachusetts. It was a bill that was approved by the statehouse in Massachusetts. The bill was to protect citizens drinking water. Is fracking the best way to protect drinking water? Does the bill solve the problem at hand? 

Austin Robertson's comment, May 18, 2014 10:34 AM
Fracking is good and bad in a lot of ways. I think that a break would be good as mitch said because not only is it putting workers in danger but also the community.

Its good to see multiple groups of people using their freedom of speech. First a man uses his freedom of speech in a negative way. Then all of the team does a great job of symbolic speech.

Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment)

Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment) | Gov & Law - Mitchell Enerson | Scoop.it

Analysis:  Recent stories have shown bloggers and reporters are posting pictures up and doing things such as videotaping police. Emily Good of Rochester, NY was recently caught by a cop when videotaping him off of her camera. He went over to her and told her to stop and stated it was illegal. When taken to court, she was later charged with obstruction of justice for arguing with a police officer. As it turned out, the police officer was wrong. Videotaping the police and anyone else in a public place is perfectly legal in New York state. The chief of police apologized later on and found out that the 1st amendment does protect these citizens who are deciding to do this. I don't agree with the 1st amendment toward this situation. I feel that everybody should have their own privacy, especially a cop. Why should somebody be able to videotape somebody else or take pictures of somebody else if it isn't okay with the person being captured on camera? I know that if somebody was videotaping me or taking pictures of me, i would feel that its against my personal property and i would definitely say something. I do agree with the 1st amendment, but when it comes to invading personal property, i feel its not right.

Mitchell Forrest Enerson's insight:

It is great to see that even the Chief of Police understands that he is not above any citizens. All of the police work should be shown to the people just as any citizen's is. People are often shown and portrayed poorly but when it comes to police officers they seem to be always taken as great people. They are not above the law and need to be treated just as any other citizen of the United States.

I understand that it's part of the first amendment but I don't know if I completely agree... I feel like that is an invasion of privacy but at the same time it's part of the first amendment and depending on what was going on, I would probably videotape it too.

I believe that by the time people make it to the abortion clinics they are well aware of their other options. So I think the bogus excuse of informing of other options is absurd. Now I do believe people have their rights to protest and the government should protect that. But the government also needs to protect those people that are trying to do what they think is best for them. Bubble zones are good but need to be enforced equally throughout the states.

The freedom of protesting should be protected. If someone is doing something that is going to help their life because they can't take care if a baby or because they were raped, they can do what they want. But protesting should be allowed.
Abigail Beinborn's curator insight, May 21, 2014 12:03 PM

This goes against the first amendment. People have a freedom of speech and to petition.  Making a boundary around the abortion clinics would be limiting their freedom to petition in the U.S. Constitution.

This is definitely violating the first amendment. They have the right to petition even if it is a nuisance. If they took it to court they would definitely lose. This is ridiculous.

It's horrible to see that Barack Obama and Congress want to continue spending. Raising the ceiling to do more spending and put us in more debt is not what we need.

Abigail Beinborn's curator insight, May 12, 2014 9:48 AM

Government spending has led to a massive debt. I believe there are ways we can spend less to help reduce our debt, but we can't stop spending governemnt money. We have to pay for the troops that fight for our country and many other people and things to keep this country going. We need to watch our government spending more closely and cautiously. 

Lauren Heim's comment, May 18, 2014 6:41 PM
The U.S. Spending has come to an all time low or should I say high? The government has only brought us the feeling of failure and that our economy is breaking down since they've only spent their money in places/things that don't actually work. The least they could do is slow it down or fund something that's actually useful.

In response to naknuts37:

My reaction to this article was that I was surprised that Americans wanted more protection towards their privacy. I didn't know that Americans cared about their privacy so much. Americans want protection against governmental intrusions, home and office intrusions from police officers. Why do police officers have the right to invade people's privacy? The article also talked about Judge Leon of the US District Court ruling that the NSA"s collection of cell phones was invading people's privacy. Cell phones contain a wide variety of personal information which is why Americans expect to have privacy on their phones. How do Americans expect to have privacy when they post things on social media sites which can be seen by anyone?

Via Ryan Byrd
Mitchell Forrest Enerson's insight:

If you really believe that honking your horn is that annoying maybe you should learn to drive so people don't feel the need to honk at you. Honking also is not a freedom of speech that should be protected. Obviously honking is a key part of driving and for the safety of drivers but if being used in excess there could be consequences. A easy way to take car of the issue is to take the people excessively honking right off the road.

This article is about whether honking your car is a form of freedom of speech or a noise ordinance. when some one honks it can mean they are trying to get their attention or because they are ,mad. if you are driving by protestors honking can be used in a mean to disrespect them.

This is just another person trying to make up in their own mind what the first amendment really means. Honking your horn is not a form of free speech, it's form of being an idiot. Granted people need to learn how to drive, they only need to be honked at once not excessively.

It can lead to cartels that result in deaths because most do, it can lead to driving under the influence and guess who's shoulders that's going to fall back on, the governments.

The federal government is right in saying that as long as it stays in Colorado, there is no issue. Legalizing marijuana nation-wide would decrease the crime rate significantly and allow many people to return to a good state of health. Just like same-sex marriage, if you don't like it, don't do it.

The topic of legalizing marijuana has been a huge topic in our country yet there are bigger things going on that people completely ignore. But I do think that states should have the right to decide for themselves whether to legalize something that they are in closer quarters with then the federal government is.

Mitchell Forrest Enerson's insight:

I had heard some things about this industry a couple of months ago. It seems almost surreal to see people making money off of fake internet currency. And to think that just about any one could do it! My uncle had told me about people buying new computers and software specifically to mine for the coin throughout the internet. I just wish I had some money so I could do it myself.

This is just another reason why our economy and our country is going to fail. We are starting to incorporate these new things into our economy and government that for one, are unconstitutional and two are just purely idiotic. This is such a foolish idea. We are trying to patch our wounds by creating new ideas instead of talking the problems head on.
