Homework Assignment 1

I found this short article very informative and very to the point about childhood homelessness.  The was also a interactive picture map of the United States where when you scroll your mouse over the different states you can see statistics pertaining to that state.  There was also a video posted.  Poverty and homelessness are part of my emphasis in my sociology major so I will definitely be watching this video over the weekend.

I found this interesting because theft of identity is a growing problem with the growth of technology.  It was also nice to see people who have bad things happen to them actually have some good karma from what happened to them.

I found this interesting because I’ve actually been keeping up with this story and there were other sex/student scandals at the bottom to check out as well.
