Fate and Family History

— How much control do you think you have over your fate?
I think I have a lot of control over my fate. Ways that you control your fate is doing stuff that determines it. Like doing something bad or good has some sort of impact on your fate.

— Do you think you will be better or worse off than your parents? In what ways? Why?
I think I will be better off than my parents in life because I have a full time job right now and I am getting paid real good for a kid who is still in school and I know how to manage my money and stuff like that.

— Do you feel your fate is already predetermined by your lineage — your parents and ancestors? Or do you feel you are in the driver’s seat in determining your own success?
Yes I think my fate has already been chosen based on my family history. My family is a hard working family and I think fate has made the decision that I will be a hard working kid, because I have a good job I and I am making a good amount of money.

Pulitzer Prize 2010 Winners

The Pulitzer Prize is an award for an achievement in American journalism. The awards are the culmination of a year-long process that begins early in the year with the of 102 judges, and are asked to make three nominations in each 21 categories.

1) Tod Robberson, Colleen McCain Nelson and William McKenzie were awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2010 for The Dallas Morning News.

2) The purpose of their editorials is clearness of style, moral purpose, sound reasoning, and power to influence public opinion.

3) After reading two articles I have found that the they interviewed people and talked to people to get the information they needed.

4) I read two articles and I thought that this section was a little bias "No wonder resentments run high in southern Dallas when the rest of the city looks down on certain neighborhoods with disdain, wondering why residents don't fix things up". This looks bias because it sounds like it is the writer talking.

5) The length of the pieces I just read is longer than a feature article, and the tone of the articles were more serious than a feature article.

Creativity

WHAT is your opinion: Is everyone creative, and can everyone learn to be more so? WHY or WHY not?

Everyone is creative is someway. Creativity comes from imagination and thinking outside the box. People can learn how to be more creative by thinking of something that bothers them and coming up with a creative way to fix the problom.  Like if a leg on a chair breaks you can be creative on how to fix it like taking a new peice of wood and putting were the old leg was.

Annoyences:
1) Not having benches in the FPAC to eat lunch on. Solution: build benches for the FPAC.
2) desk's that wobble. Solution: fold a piece of paper up and put it under the leg.
