The coffee shop isn’t used as a meeting place; old friends now connect through the internet rather than meet each other in person. One doesn’t go to a coffee shop on a weekend to go relax by a window to read the paper and slowly enjoy every sip of an expertly crafted cup of coffee. Now people wait in a long line at their local chain to get a paper cup filled with cheap coffee and fake sweetener, and rush off to their class or job, drinking so fast they burn their tongues in the process. Coffee and coffee shops have now become a routine rather than a delightful occasion. When I go into Dunkin Donuts in the morning I get the same basic greeting, same brown paper cup, and walk out feeling the same as I walked in.

Shortly after 7:00 P.M. on Sunday, February 26, 2012, seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin talked on his cellphone with his friend, Rachel Jeantel. He carried a bag of Skittles and an Arizona watermelon juice cooler as he headed along a sidewalk in the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhouse community in Sanford. When George Zimmerman, driving his SUV to Target for an errand, looked out his window he spotted Martin and concluded, as he told police in a phone call, he was "a real suspicious guy. " What about Martin made him suspicious is not completely clear. What is known is that Martin is that he was unknown to Zimmerman, young, wore a hooded sweatshirt, walked slowly in the rain--and, most central to the debates that would later ensue, was black.
Hi Yasna, It 's Samantha, the associate you interviewed Friday for sales lead. Sorry for the extremely late email, this is the first chance I 've gotten to write you. Today I went by Children 's Place at Eastridge, and spoke with Diana. You had asked me to see what I noticed that was different from Eastridge and Valley Fair, and the first thing that I noticed when I walked in was how much smaller the store is compared to Valley Fair. I also noticed how there is less traffic coming through at Eastridge then there is at Valley fair.
