This is a bad year for the relationship between college students and the government. Students are frustrated with the constant increase of tuition prices. It has reached a piont where they feel as if the only way to change their predicament , or at least get a more immediate attention to it, is to protest. This usually leads to violence or arrest for students students, which is good for no one. So far there has been little news about anything changing in favor of the students.
For private institutions trustee board members are the people who carry the authority when it comes to tuition increases. However, for state colleges if little funding is given from the government, increases are inevitable. To change anything, I believe, the support of state officials are needed, they would most likely be them most accessible To attempt to try and plead the the U.S. Department of Education to fight for education to be seen as more of a priority.Students around the country are protesting the constant rising of their tuition prices.
I believe to make any type of change college students must really look to who is in what office in their local areas, more specifically who is their state representative. Students should come together and try and contact their representative to get this issue addresses and to ask what should they be doing to really change their predicament besides protesting or just dropping out. Hopefully by doing this there will be more done about this within the next year or so. If not college may be too far out of reach financially, for many high school students in America.
Semaj and I chose to partner up to apply for a license to carry a concealed firearm in Philadelphia. I thought this process would be a hard one but to be truthful it turned out to be more easer than we both thought. All it really took was time research and paper work.
All we really had to do was google apply for a license to carry a concealed firearm in Philadelphia and it come rite up paper work in all. We found out that all you really needed to do was fill out papers and supply a few documents. We printed out our papers and filled them out the way we would if we were to actually apply for the license.
The paperwork part was no hassle at all. When we printed them all out we used fake names and numbers that was need. We did this to show that we knew how to fill these out just like we would in real life.
If I could change one thing about the bureaucratic process I would have to change the fact that if you answer one question yes then there is no need to proceed because your not eligible and I think that it not fair really because you really never know anyone’s situation to just go off of a yes or no question.
I think the systems have become so complicated because there are a lot more issues and details that need to be addressed within our society so to try to ensure the safety and simplicity of our society certain precautions need to be made to make the jobs of people in the system easier. Not only easier but also safer self-defense and protection is so important because people now a days are really crazy.
I found this project fun and interesting just like my partner but I think she had more fun with it. It took me a few to truly understand the processes but with her help I caught on very fast and once I got it I was on the ball and I good to go and that is when it became fun and interesting.
Here's the to our actual FlowChart.
My group member, Shelby, and I worked on the process of becoming a foster parent. Since we couldn’t find to much about the process online I emailed my aunt, who was a foster parent and went through all of this process before, and she was able to contact the foster care agency she went through and they sent us a bunch of information and paper work for becoming a foster parent. Once we got all of that information we were able to start recording the process and filling out the paper work.
The paper work wasn’t really difficult but just asked for a lot of information. It was not just one packet of question or information you had to fill out but there were several papers and packets that we had to fill out. Some of them were basic information one but also ones that talked about your house appliances and how they worked as well as criminal and FBI clearance forms. The paper work also included the different things you would have to send to let them know your certifications, for example, if you CPR certified you would have to send them proof of it.
If we had to change the bureaucratic process flow chart that we made, we could possibly of made it longer like more detailed in places. When we talked about the list of requirements we could of made a bubble for each individual one and talked about the yes and no’s of those as well. But I was happy with how ours came out.
Going back to how detailed the paper work had to be and also how long the process is to become a foster parent, it shows how protected they have made the foster care system. Becoming a foster parent isn’t like applying for a driver’s license, well fare, or anything along those lines. There is a child involved in this process. So before they just give a child to someone they really have to do a background check on who the person and family is so they know that when they let the child stay with this family or person that the child is safe and will be taken care of. The process is a pain in the booty, but it makes sense why it is so long and detailed.

Hydraulic fracturing is being opposed by 78 percent of elected officials who have had a say in what companies are going to drill in our waters. Although this is the case, these companies are still drilling. How could this be the case? That is what Iris Marie Bloom, director of Protecting Our Waters has asked numerous times. Unlike many politicians, Bloom has a clear following and is pushing forward every possible obstacle at the drilling companies to get them out of Philadelphia's waterways. Iris Marie Bloom has held steady protests throughout the city since July of 2010 to get her point across, averaging a turnout of nearly six thousand people each protest.
At each of her protests, Bloom brings together nearly sixty five organizations that have their targets set on removing drills from waters around Pennsylvania and other states. While the protesters realize that these companies have contracts within the city and would lose large amount of money by withdrawing from their projects, they still refuse to acknowledge any environmental or health risks. In the case of hydraulic fracturing, the cons vastly outweigh the pros and no matter the cost of the drilling companies, the drilling must be stopped soon enough.
While big name protestors like Iris Bloom and Tracy Carluccio have important roles in removing drilling companies like Marcellus Shale and others, the real influencers of these drilling companies are the citizens that come out to these protests and have felt the affects of fracking.
Click Here to send a delightful postcard to Governor Tom Corbett.
Many students, including in this class are focused on putting a stop to tracking within Pennsylvania's boundaries. Ali Ahmed and Rashaun Williams are just two of the students who are taking a stance on the fight against fracking. Together, we would red to influence Governor Tom Corbett and even the White House to fight for our cause to get something done about the pollution in our waters. So far, millions of petitions have been sent to Barack Obama's federal representative demanding a "No" vote against fracking.
We are already out of time, as tracking has been polluting our waters for nearly fifty years now, and while it has more recently inhabited Philadelphia it has plunged the city's drinking water from the fifth on the leader board to dead last in terms of cleanliness. In the past three years the water in Philly has been utterly destroyed by chemicals. Meanwhile, we're all drinking it.
If you still don't understand hydraulic fracturing, this great song should help you out.

In one of the Fall mini-courses at the Franklin Institute, 20 freshman SLA students learned to computer program in Scratch. The workshop was led by postdoctoral fellow Dr. Deborah Fields from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. Some of the best students completed by these junior programmers are shown below. We're very proud of their creative work!
