    • Hello Eric, I was reading your topic and I found it pretty interesting. I always wondered whether self driving cars are reliable or not? I mean, when has anything a human has made ever been perfect? Never. The idea of having cars that can take you anywhere without a driver is pretty cool, but I personally don’t think it’s a great idea. Cars are pretty expensive nowadays, and having a car that is controlled by technology is a step up, does that mean car prices will go up or down? I found this article fascinating, http://www.businessinsider.com/why-driverless-cars-will-be-safer-than-human-drivers-2016-11, but I’m assuming it’s nothing you don’t already know. I read from the article that self driving cars are mimicking the way humans use their senses to move around, and is pretty cool. But as humans, our senses fail us sometimes, and so will the car if it’s built with senses like a person. I’m really curious to see where you go with this. Hope to hear more about your research!

    Hi Brooklyn,
    I really enjoyed reading your article, and I completely agree with you that this is a big issue right now. I also agree that lots of people chose to drink alcohol because they think it will make you cool and mature. However, there a lot of consequences when making these kinds of decisions. In addition, a lot of students in high…Read More

  • Hi Onyu,
    Great job on your essay! I agree that technology can be distracting and bad at times, but that is only because of how we choose to use certain types of technology. Smartphones, for example, provide us with an unlimited number of ways to communicate and interact with each other as well as providing great educational resources if we use…Read More
