Recent studies have shown that kids are posting too much sensitive information online.  Many parents believe that kids are not thinking about what they say before they post it online.  Also, the pictures are too revealing and too much swearing is being shared.  Many parents are completely unaware of what kids have on their pages or what type of posts their kids make on a daily basis.

A)  If you REFLECT on social networking, Why do you think kids share so much information with complete strangers online? 

B)   Social networking such as party lines and chat rooms have been around for 20 years, so how have advances in technology changed and made sites like Facebook and Myspace more interesting now?”

C)  Do you believe there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to pictures and things said online on sites like Facebook or Myspace?   What is that line?

D)  Even though kids have been told about the number of cyber predators online, why do you think kids still put so much personal information online for everyone to see?

Call of Duty: Black Ops

“Pop Culture is everywhere.  Zombies are the newest craze to take over horror culture, now that vampires have died down a bit.  The University of Baltimore is now offering a course called Zombie 101. Zombies were featured on an episode of Glee as well as many other TV shows.  The most popular downloadable content for a video game this past year has been Red Dead Redemption – the zombie pack.  Yesterday, the download “Escalation” for the most popular Game of the Year, Call of Duty: Black Ops came featuring zombies with plenty of celebrity guest appearances and directed by Mr. Zombie, George Romero. 

A)  If you REFLECT on pop culture, Why do you think America has this sudden fascination with zombies? 

B)  If  Zombies and zombie movies have been around for 50 years, how have advances in technology changed Zombies and made them more interesting now?”

C)  Even though Black Ops is already a popular game, why do you think this zombie download will make it more popular/less popular?
