The death of Osama Bin Laden

This morning I checked news, the top stories of all the news stations were “Osama Bin Laden was killed", and also many people cheered for this news. For America, this was good news, because of him, the Sept. 11 attack happened 10 years ago. It took 10 years for US to track down Bin Laden, and finally yesterday everything was over. I think it is time to send those troops back to their home from Al Qaeda. According to the news, Bin Laden's body was buried in the ocean.

Ten years ago, I was in China. I heard about 911 attacks. This attack did affect a lot of people there, some people feared terrorism. Now, even though I know Laden's death was good news, I cannot understand how most American people feel about this. People were angry because of this10 years ago. Now those people, who had been mad, are relived.

Useful app for NBA fan

Because of school and job, sometimes I could watch the NBA games that I didn't want to miss. Then I heard about a app called NBA game time. So I download it and tried it. I have to say, it is awesome. The NBA game time gives me all the news about NBA, and all the latest game results. You can watch the NBA game on the air by purchasing the membership. You can also watch the games of yesterday for free, so if you missed one favorite game, no problem, just turn on the NBA game time. Also you can watch top 10, and other videos for free. Where else can you find a better app for a NBA fan? This is e best app of NBA.

Umass Amherst

When I first time being searching school online for the college applications, I found Umass Amherst. After viewed its website, I thought that was a school where i want to go. Last week, when i got the letter from Umass Amherst i was so excited.
Here, i want to do some research about Umass Amherst.
first let's watch a video: Why UMass Amherst
The University was established in 1863 as the Massachusetts Agricultural College, located in Amherst. It became known as the Massachusetts State College in 1932 and in 1947 became the University of Massachusetts. The Worcester and Boston campuses were established in 1962 and 1964, respectively. The Lowell and Dartmouth campuses (previously the University of Lowell and Southeastern Massachusetts University, respectively) were consolidated into the University under Chapter 142 of the acts of 1991.         
                                                                                                     --UMass Amherst website

UMass Amherst is the flagship of all the UMass. there are 25,000 students on the campus who are from fifty states and 100 countries. The campus offers ninety-three undergraduate programs.

Yes, we should be taught Social Media

     I just read Why We Should Be Teaching Social Media. It was a great post. The writer's point is obvious. Instead of teaching students how to use blog, teachers should teach them how to use blog in a right way.  The four lessons that the writer found out were pretty impressive. like the first class in the web2.0 class, everyone in the social network has his/her footprint. Once you "send""submit"
something on the internet,  it is there, and you may not delete it. it is so important to think before "send".
yes it is easy to hide behind screen to say whatever you pleased. when we comment on something, we should imagine that the sentence we typed in is what you say to a person face to face. In that way, there will be less trash in our social network.
