facebook photos

Photos that are published on Facebook can bring many conflicts on school and in the society.Students punishment for a photo where they are at a party ,was unfair that the students receive the punishment for a photo that was published on the web.

The severe punishment that the students receive for a photo that was taking on a party, where a group of students are drinking something in a red cup.The school of Minnesota think that those students were drinking alcohol.The penalties that the school decide to give to the students was because they committed first violation, but they don’t know what the students were really drinking on that plastic cup.

The students said that the school administrators over reacted to the perception that students in the photo were drinking.The school over reacted with severe punishment on putting to the students that they has committed a first violation.Once the photos that were published in the social-networking website was what brought the attention of the administrators.The students punishment was that students receive on game suspension for the first violation.The School was very wrong on put severe punishment because the students were out of school not in school, And they didn't prove that those students were drinking alcohol on those cups.

At the other side the School of Minnesota was right to make the severe punishment with the students to demonstrate that they take actions to discipline the students on what they are doing.Administrators want to show to the students with penalties that social networking sites make the entire world a public space.At the same time the school was wrong on putting penalties to the students because out of school students need to be penalties by their parents and of they were drinking something on the cup that was a privacy party where the school not has to infer.

Students should not publish every single thing that they do out of school.This publications bring problems in their social life.Schools not should taking too much importance to whatever photo that is published in the web social.Everything that is published in the web sites is not true.Parents can be more responsible in educating their kids.

Obama signed an executive order raising the minimum wage. The president Obama is raising the minimum wage for all Americans. The executive had been pushed by progressive democratic lawmakers. The raise of minimum wage applies to all contractors performing service for the federal government.

This would affect more than 2 million employees because many people are not going to be able to get a job. The contractors are not going have many people working they are going to reduce the employees to pay the $10.10 this is one of the effect that can have. The minimum wage is for people from 18 to 30 and they are not going to find job with this wage because the contractors already are going to have people working.The president is trying to again the economy. This is going to affect the futures contracts.

The effect, discouraging business from hiring more workers at a time when the government is trying to spur job growth. The minimum wage is mostly an entry level wage for young people. A crisis in employment among young people generation from 18 to 30 people that got out of college, are finding there are not jobs for them.

letter to the editor

cell phone use

Dear Editor,

Cell phones in society are very important they become the center of the attraction. Cell phones are an unnecessary distraction in today's world. They are causing people to not pay attention to what they are doing.Although sometimes cell phones may be convenient and come in handy, they are usually just a luxury item that people want and

don't really need.

Cell phones are the center of attraction by more people young that the old people because they don’t really think that a luxury cell phone is important. When you are trying to do something the cell phone don’t let you to concentrate on what you are doing this is because many people they say that they can not live without phones. They become a distraction because if you are in a job if you have the cell phone then you can not concentrate on the work that you need to do. The youngest people are more interesting on the cell phones because they like that they have too much technology.

Many people don’t use the phone to make important calls they just like to have a good phone. Some people use them just to play around. If you are trying to do a great work on whatever you are working if the cell phone is beside you then you can’t concentrate because every seconds you are checking if you have a message.

In the world there are many more important things that you can have and they are important not like a luxury phone. They let us to make call from almost everywhere. Cell phone are actually effective communication.That's why I think cell phones are just a big distraction from the world around you.

Many people don’t know the importance that this vaccine has. Also more young s adult need to start using because they think that they are immortal to not get this flu but the series is that this is a virus and can affect everyone.
