TVs Watching You?

Imagine your cable box or DVR collecting information about the shows you watch and then sharing that information with advertisers.  Benefits:  Advertisers might get a better idea of what you might buy, and the ads you see could be more relevant to you.  Drawbacks:  There are concerns that your privacy is being violated, with records being kept of what you're watching and when you're watching it.

What do you think?

Peanut Allergy Controversy

Your opinion of the new rules at a Florida school:

At a school in Florida, a 6-year-old girl has a life-threatening peanut allergy.  To protect her, the school put these rules in place:  The other students must leave their lunches outside the classroom, wash their hands before they enter the classroom and after they eat lunch, and at one point, they had to rinse out their mouths.

You hear some strong arguments on both sides of this issue.  Now, we're listening for what you have to say about it.

Working Out – Outside

In an effort to help combat obesity, the city of Miami has installed outdoor gyms that anyone can use for free. What do you think of this idea - do you think it will encourage people who might not usually exercise to work out?

School wake-up calls

Beginning this week, some chronically late students in the Boston area will begin getting automated wake-up calls starting at 6:15 a.m.  Some like the idea and believe it could get more students to school, more of the time.  Others think school officials are going too far.

We're curious to know who you think should be responsible for getting you to school on time.

Corporal Punishment on Campus

Corporal punishment at school:

I definitely wouldn't have expected students to be the ones to defend paddling at school, but that's exactly what happened at St. Augustine High School in New Orleans.  The local archbishop says paddling doesn't belong at school and that he believes it "does not build character."  But some St. Augustine students are arguing that paddling isn't just a form of discipline; it's a "form of life at St. Augustine" - and they point out that the school has produced successful men over the decades.

What is your stance on corporal punishment at school?

Encapsulating your generation

An unearthed time capsule could give people in Christchurch, New Zealand a portal to learn what life in their city was like more than 100 years ago.

It got us thinking: if you were building a time capsule to represent your generation, what would you include? What one item or artifact would best describe the time you live in to people in the future?

Supreme Court Ruling

"Speech is powerful.  It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow, and - as it did here - inflict great pain.  On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker."

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote these words in a Supreme Court decision on Wednesday.  We'd like to know what you think of the story and the opinion of the court.
