Movie Review

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs? Nah, more like sunny with a chance of laughter, this movie was cute and entertaining, with comedic pain and adorable animals. The two main characters, a baby producing cloud, and his trusty stork that delivers them begin having relationship problems when the interacting a become to dangerous for the stork. Although it ins swiftly resolved after a bit of minor crying and they become friends once more and continue on there work. I believe the film was a contemporary piece on the new age problem of having to explain birth to kids,this comedic look at the alternative solution to telling kids about the birds and bees. The rest of this is going to be gibberish so that it looks like I'm an adequate writer that can fill three quarters of a page discussing a four minute movie. I do not enjoy watching basketball unless it is a alley oop or dunk competition, I do on the other hand enjoy ballin out or so it is referred to by the hooligans of today. I believe 9/11 was an inside job and that Osama bin laden was working for the US government and that is why they haven't released proof of his death. Ron Paul for president, the N word.

College crossroads

— What is your reaction to Mr. Bruni’s idea that where you go to college matters less than “the effort you put into your studies, the earnestness with which you hone your skills, what you actually learn”?
I believe that Mr. Bruni's idea has a very strong amount of relevance and that it is something I believe in as well. The fact of the matter though, is that if a smart young person graduates from USM with a bachelors in accounting and applies for the same job that a another smart young person from Harvard applied too with the same credentials, that the Harvard graduate will more likely be granted the job because of the social stigma surrounding top colleges.

— If you’re a student who is finished with the college process, what advice would you give high school juniors?
Make sure you have good grades, do lots of college visits to get the ideal feel of the schools you want to go to, fill out scholarships and college applications early. Also stay out of the police beat if you're a hooligan, bump ins with the law and School officials can hamper your college career.

— In the end, how much do you think it matters where you go to college? Why?
Unfortunately I believe it matters a lot where you go to college, not just how hard you work, and are dedicated to the subject. This isn't always a bad thing because to gain access into the top schools you do have to be intelligent and hard working.

Opening Moment 4/1/14

Recently family members of passengers have been lawyering up due to the discrepency of June airlines. Also a ship with high tech search gear is being released to the ocean but with no idea where to search for flight 370.

SAT on the Job

— Do you think SAT scores could be a good indicator of future career success? Why or why not?
I believe so, because growing up with the people in this high school and getting to know them has shown me that there are some very intelligent hard working kids, and those kids got higher SAT scores than the rest of the students. If I was a future employer I would like to choose those kids with higher SAT scores because I would know that they are intelligent and hard working.

— Should there be an expiration date on the scores’ being considered as part of
a prospective employee’s application? If so, what should it be?
Yes, there should be an expiration date in when SAT scores are a valid indicator of a persons knowledge and work ethic. I have met some smart hardworking people and I believe that they are great at there job but if you gave them an SAT in this day and age they wouldn't remember how to do half of the questions because they have replaced that knowledge with information more prominent to there environment and work.

— What if a job applicant did not take the SAT? Do you think some employers would penalize that person? How should this situation best be handled, in your opinion?
If a job applicant didn't take the SAT then employers should see if they did AP exams or the ACT, if they didn't do either if these then a highschool and college transcript. I do believe it would hamper the applicants chance of getting the job.
