ASSIGNMENTS: 

  1. Read this article on TechCrunch about how Facebook is trying to quell the social media driven bias the President spoke of. 

2. Watch this…and try amazing hour for this weekend. See what it stimulates in your brain (I am going to try it as well). Then, on Sunday, write an entry about it in your blog (label it Blog #4: AMAZING HOUR) and tell me all about what it did (or didn’t do) for you. This blog will not be graded Monday, but I’d love to have a conversation about AMAZING HOUR on Monday.

3. In synthesizing our fact-check discussion, poke around this site tonight and see what you find.

4. Read “The Money” by Junot Diaz, originally published in The New Yorker. Be prepared to discuss.
