Have you ever noticed the increasing number of users of the electronic cigarettes? Electronic cigarettes (EC) use double every day.

Everything argues upon “they say” versus what “I say”, which is extremely significant because everyone’s opinion is effective to someone. Likewise, in the two articles, “Watching TV Makes You Smarter” and “Thinking Outside of the Idiot Box”, both the authors created arguments on whether television makes you “smarter”, or not. In the article, “Watching TV Makes You Smarter”, the author, Steve Johnson, argues that television is significant to the brain.

Growing up on the 979, I always listen to my brother Tin (who never nguyens) listening hip hop/rap from artist like Jay-Z and Notorious B.I.G. Listening to hip hop made me like the genre more and ended up listening to other artist such as Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A you know the good stuff. So I basically grew up listening to late 90’s early 2000’s hip-hop. But now I’ve noticed that hip-hop has gone from that storytelling express your feelings and emotions vibe to that Money, Sex, Hoes vibe. Don’t get me wrong the B$#%hes and money thing has been going on for a long time that’s fine but now…its just gone to an extreme point now where you just want to say “STOP”.

The Cease of Journalism in the Digital Age Waking up on a Sunday morning, enjoying a freshly brewed mug of coffee, relaxing at home reading the newspaper… to most Americans, this would seem like an ideal leisurely weekend. This has been a social norm for almost a century up until only recently.
