Florida Shooting: Your Questions

From news to social media, a great deal of discussion has been devoted to a Florida neighborhood watch shooting involving Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.  (You can watch the CNN Student News segment here at about 2:12 into the show.)

More than a month after the shooting took place, many details are still unclear, and many questions remain.  What questions do you have about this story?

A Masterful Memory

He hears numbers, turns them into pictures in his mind, turns those pictures into a story...and then walks back through the story, remembering incredible amounts of numbers in the order he heard them.  It's a method of training for a man with a masterful memory, and it has helped him win the U.S. memory championships.

For me, a former writer, I find that writing anything down (or even typing it) helps me remember.  Repetition also plays a part:  I'll sometimes take a script, read it through a few times, and focus on the most important phrases of each sentence.  Then, when I step in front of the camera, I'll have the paragraph in my head.

What are the methods to your memory?

A School Goes Old-School

In the technology-rich environment of Silicon Valley, a school is going technology-free:  no computers, no SMART boards, no Internet.  These things are being replaced with chalkboards, physical activity...and an old-fashioned education.

The question for you is:  Will this make for a better education?

Kony and Social Media

CNN Student News reported on Joseph Kony last October, and he'd been covered in various other newscasts before that.  But it was a recent viral video that made him infamous across America.

As you'll see in Tuesday's program, the war is over in Northern Uganda, and Kony's force has fled to other African countries, though it still holds children captive.  The viral video about Kony continues to spread.  And we'd like to get your take on that:  Why do you think this story is getting so much attention on social media?

License Revoked...Permanently

A judge in Rhode Island has permanently revoked a teenage driver's license.  What this means is that the teen will never again be able to drive legally as long as he lives in Rhode Island.

The reasons:  The teen, who wrecked a car with three friends in it, had been charged with several crimes, including driving recklessly and driving with a suspended license - which means he'd broken laws before.

In your opinion, does the punishment fit the crimes?  How would you have punished this driver?
