Cate Briggs's insight:

People should be turning off  their devices and not being able to use them the whole entire plane flight. It is causing plane crashes and  just shouldn't be allowed on planes. iPhones and computers take up a lot of pollution,  and they should not be able to be used on planes. The planes should not only have a non-smoking, non-seatbelt sign, they should also have a no electronic sign. This is causing plane crashes and this is not how airplanes should be.

Cate Briggs's insight:
A couple visiting Canada built an interesting structure in a back yard. A man, his girlfriend, and her family worked on the project together. First they cleared the snow from the yard. Then filled milk cartons with water and color to make ice blocks. The couple and family started making a circle with the blocks and continued building on top of the foundation. In the end, they had a colorful snow igloo.

The futurists envision wireless charging stations everywhere, flexible displays that will turn a variety of surfaces into information hubs and television featuring “super hi-vision” that is 16 times the level of detail of current high-definition TVs.

I think this is a good improvement. Even if people are not at the stadium, they will know how it feels to be there. Last year's Olympics were not as high death as I thought they would be, so I'm excited to see what it will be.

One of Apple's biggest selling points for the iPhone 5s, or at least the one that is easiest to demo in-store, is the addition of the Touch ID system.

This is a great feature  because it adds another security component to the phone. If it's stolen it's less likely a criminal can use it.

Names are getting weirder with one family naming their child after a Hot Dog stand

Names are getting weirder with one family naming their child after a Hot Dog stand | iPhone 5s | Scoop.it
FROM Game of Thrones to Hot Dog stands - the latest generation of baby names are getting weirder than ever.

Cate Briggs's insight:

I believe that people should not be needing the kids after stands and animals and everything. You should be able to name your child something that's actually meaningful. People should be choosing names that have been in their family for years or like I said before meaningful. If my name were "eat me" I would want to change it. I wouldn't want to have my parents named me something I don't want to call for for the rest my life

I do not think that they will be able to me it see-through. I believe that the iPhone 6 will be better and bigger than the iPhone 5. I hope to see that it will have more touch screen things,more storage and more apps.  I hope to see theat it will be cheeper, so that more people will have it, so it will be even more poplar then the iPhones befor.

I believe that the people that it effected should have been warned. They most have heard it and they were probably thinking it was a plain or something like that. People around the city, should have warned everybody within at 10 mile radius but they thought it was. This could have been worse but luckily nobody was killed.

Study: Anti-Bullying Programs May Have Opposite Effect | US News and World Report

Study: Anti-Bullying Programs May Have Opposite Effect | US News and World Report | iPhone 5s | Scoop.it

Anti-bullying programs that are now commonplace in schools may be having the opposite of their intended effect, according to new research from the University of Texas, Arlington.

 

In a study published in the Journal of Criminology on Thursday, a team of researchers found that students at schools with anti-bullying initiatives are actually more likely to be victims of bullying than students who attend schools without such programs.

 

The findings contradict the popular belief that anti-bullying programs help prevent physical and emotional bullying. Lead author Seokjin Jeong said in a statement that the programs may help students learn what a bully does and looks like, teaching them how to better hide their behaviors.

 

"The schools with interventions say, 'You shouldn't do this,' or 'you shouldn't do that,'" Jeong said. "But through the programs, the students become highly exposed to what a bully is and they know what to do or say when questioned by parents or teachers."

 

Additionally, the study says that although bullies may learn a variety of anti-bullying techniques, they may simply choose not to practice what they have learned.

Cate Briggs's insight:

I think this is happening because this school makes students somewhat aware of how bully others. The school is focusing on the negative instead of the positive way to live your life.

Rakhee Cherian's curator insight, December 6, 2013 1:03 PM

This article stuck out to me because I have always seen some issues with antibullying programs. I believe that it is a great thing that school is getting involved and taking preventative actions because that is the first step. But I also believe there are some issues with the methods. Although it is great that they talk about how bullies can change I do not believe that lecturing is the most effective method. Bullying is interactive and often silent so the prevention acts should also be interactive and silent. Meaning that they need to talk to the students and make the prevention more personal. Also I believe it is the nature of certain people to go against what they are told. So by being told not to do something they may choose to do it anyways. Like the article mentioned bullies may just choose to not follow what they learned. I think part of the reason that may happen is because they dont feel responsibility to do so. Since the lectures arent focused directly at them they may not feel a sense of responsibillity. That is another reason being more direct may be helpful because perhaps if they were to talk to students directly they may  realize what they have to do. That goes for the people being bullied as well. Although they may here how to take preventative actions until they actually start to believe in their own self worth preventing bullying is going to be very difficult. And sometimes saying it to them directly may help them understand. But just lecturing it out to a crowd certain people may believe that it does not mean them. That it is directed at others. Sometimes you have to step deeper and get to the root of the problem in order to resolve it.
