Transcript: Research and Case studies Deforestation is increasing because of the need of wood to burn and make buildings and the need for paper to write messeges and information for other people. This can be combated by planting more trees, and this tree planting can be funded by the previously-stated carbon tax.

Problem Carbon Taxes and Reforestation Any questions? The carbon tax Reforestation Earl Nightingale, respected radio personality and writer, stated this as a warning; if we continue to spew out CO2 at this rate, we will become our own worst enemy Background Information Solution One possible solution to this problem is to introduce a carbon tax to decrease the appeal to fossil fuels, and to start a general reforestation project in Illinois The CO2 levels in the atmosphere are rising steadily, and this is affecting the earth by creating more violent and more frequent droughts, the eventual flooding of coastal cities, and the mass extinction of various species throughout the world. This is a concern for everyone, as flooding cities would force people to either move or abandon the cities. This would lead to a governmental failure and lots of animals going extinct, which makes this a very serious issue Human activity is causing excess CO2 in the atmosphere, mostly due to the burning of fossil fuels. These fossil fules produce CO2 and heat when burned. Carbon Tax Our proposal for a carbon tax would be one that increased with three variables, the time since the release of the tax, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, and the amount of carbon the company is producing.

Transcript: The White Paper Some of the preparation included... Field Trips to various Government buildings such as... All of these experiences helped to enrich my knowledge of our government. They gave me insight to many government proceedings, including the very important process of passing legislation. I also had to find a place to intern at. I choose to intern at the Capital University IT Department. The Internship helped me to decide what I wanted to make my White Paper About. The Plan Pros and Cons Some Statistics While all statistics show growth of technology , both personal and in schools, what's the point of it if students can't use it to their educational advantage My legislation will be sent to John Patrick Carney, where I hope it will be viewed and considered. Positives and Negatives The Crime Lab The White Paper is a cumulative assignment, the entire J-Term Government class has been preparing us to make this project. The Supreme Court Cons Students will better understand technology Students will be able to use technology to make their school work more interesting and useful Schools will have to hire a new teacher, which helps with creating jobs Students will be better prepared for college Time will be saved in class when computers are needed. Implications While technology is everywhere in our schools, what's the point of it if students don't know how to use it to its full potential? My proposed legislation aims to change that, and better prepare students for tomorrow. We also had a speaker, Maurice Thomson Make Introductory Level Tech Education Mandatory Costs and Benefits Budget Implementation of such a program could cause some other program to be cut Not all students have home computers to practice their skills Conclusion Technology is unavoidable. The plan is to require 1 credit of tech education in high schools. To make sure students understand how to use technology to make their school work more interesting and in depth. Throughout the class we've done a lot to make sure our understanding of Government is good, so we could make the best legislation possible. Connections The State House The legislation I decided to create involves requiring schools to have an introductory technology education class.

Transcript: Even with the regulation of broadcast television, the main responsibility still lies on the parent or guardian to monitor what is being watched. If you cannot control what your kids are watching, that is your fault, not the network's. Brian McCarthy WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. In late June, (an 8-0 decision) ruled against the FCC's policy regulating curse words and nudity on broadcast television. The case involved some uncensored curse words and brief nudity on various networks, including Fox. Arguing that broadcasters should not be “denied the same basic First Amendment freedoms as other media," lawyer for Fox Carter G. Phillips stated to the court “today, broadcasting is neither uniquely pervasive, nor uniquely accessible to children.” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in a brief opinion that she would have overturned the Pacifica ruling, which she called wrong even when it was decided. COM 301 Dr. Celano because if we don't... In 1978, the Supreme Court in the landmark case FCC v. Pacifica Foundation upheld the FCC’s power to punish broadcasters that aired indecent material during prime time, when children were likely to be watching. Television was a primary source of media and information at the time, since then much has changed. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?? free speech. 1st Amendment. plain and simple. thank you for your time. BUT WHAT DOES THE SUPREME COURT HAVE TO SAY NOW? We should increase lobbying efforts to fight higher fines on television and radio broadcasters.
