High Schoo Grades And Foutur Saladry

1) He demonstrates how people from the 1960's and people from the 1940's make almost a $400,000 wage gap, even with the same education.

2) Better grades were linked to both higher earnings and a higher chance of continuous studying after high school. He says that for every one-point increase in GPA there was about a 12%-14% increase in annual earnings.

3) Minorities, I guess it might be a stronger will power, as they have a worse background than whites some might try and show that they are equal.

Militar3y Sch00l

1) I believe the surge in student enrollment is all the students that want to correct themselves, because of what Mireya Orozco "I like the discipline of it, it has taught me self-control."

2) It works to show how discipline affects so many. It shows how effective this type of schooling is. Sometimes students actually enjoy discipline and the effects of it.

3) Student responsibility is important because it teaches students how they will have responsibility in any scenario in life, it teaches them how real life will be. You could enforce late work more to try and show how kids need to know responsibility.

Social media and Jobs/Schooling

1) I do personally believe that they should look at your social media, because if you are saying stuff that shouldn't be said or that's controversial to many, then they should have the right to deny you. I know many people at our school that says really controversial or bad things in social media. If you're going to be saying bad things about the school or the people inside it then they don't need you.

2) I do agree that kids are trying to be more of a character and not have character, there are plenty of people in this school that speak before thinking and constantly try to make jokes, and many of them don't know when to stop. I myself can often be caught speaking before thinking.

3) One of the rules that we have at the school that mimic's what you may find in most jobs, is the "no cell phones" rule. I do believe that the high school is putting in an effort to prepare students for life after school, but how well they enforce these rules also affect the students. Many teachers enforce the rule, but many also don't care and allow their students to do whatever, whenever.

Tedious bills

1) The rent for a 2 bedroom apartment is $759 and if I only pay half it's $379.50. So I should be ok with this.

2) Phone plan for only my share would be $22.50
car- car insurance will cost $115 per month
electric- $30-$100 per month
Gasoline- about $132 per month for gas for me car
gas- $40- $150 per month
oil change- $25
food- If I eat nothing but soup it will cost me roughly $20
Internet- Internet bill on average costs $50 a month
Misc- Toilet paper for probably just over a month would cost $16, $10 for hair and body wash for a month or so. $8 for laundry for a month. Light Bulbs for $25 for about 10 light bulbs.
End- After all of this stuff I just paid for I would have roughly $144 left over for saving for whatever I am saving up for at that point.

3) It would be hard living paycheck to paycheck because every little bit of money counts and if you overspend your a little screwed over. If you have a skill that is important that is not as common than people are going to pay you more for having a rare skill.

Carreeeerrrrssss

1~ I would like to go into graphic design working on video games, just being able to see other people enjoy your work and like it without necessarily even knowing you did it, it's just having someone look at it and say "huh, that's pretty cool". I always found that it's a good feeling having someone say what you did is cool, good, or amazing. I personally like to think that I'm creative, and good at drawing things that don't make sense.

2~ Graphic Design. I want to go into graphic design and Calvin College has courses on graphic design and it's nearby. It would give me both a degree and something to put on my resume going into a potential job for this. Having both a degree and something on my resume like that would help me have a better chance to get said job.

3~ The potential earning power for this job is on average $41,429 per year. Which just by myself would leave me, upper-middle class, with a roommate, would make it to where I shouldn't struggle that bad with money.

Nike, Just Don't Do it, It's not worth it.

1) He argues how you could make a big investment in shoes and how it doesn't really relate to other things in stock. It also has to do with the types of values.

2) They talk about both resale market and stock market.

3) I would most likely collect all sorts of video games and video games systems, whether I like them, because they are rare, or even just to have them.

1)Informational, it talks about how and why comic sans is the most hated font.

2)Compare and Contrast, they compare why it is hated and why people use it.

3) Virtual reality, because it's really cool to see what you can already do with it for games and other stuff and it would be really cool to see how it has progressed and push the limits of what you can do for virtual reality with our technology.
