No Tweeting for WSU Players

At Washington State University, football players who use Twitter can get suspended from the team.  The coach made the decision after some players allegedly posted some vulgar tweets, and the school's athletic director said the team doesn't need distractions; it needs to focus.

Some of the university's students agree with the decision; some don't.  We'd like to hear where you stand on the team Twitter ban.

Your Top Election Issue(s)

A recent survey of Americans ages 14-17 found that their top concerns included the economy, jobs, education and health care.  It may not be surprising, since those are the same concerns of most American voters.  But it shows you how in tune your peers are with the issues facing the nation as a whole.

What's your opinion - what do you think are the top issues this election year?

Friends & Politics

Karen Caifa has an interesting report in Friday's show about politics and social media.  In it, she discusses how election season can heat up political discussions on sites like Facebook - and how some people might "unfriend" or hide the posts of those they don't agree with.

We'd like to get your thoughts on this.  Do you like hearing the different political opinions of your friends on social media?  Do these posts make you mad enough to unfriend someone, would you just hide their posts, or would you just ignore them, hoping they'll go away after the election?

Race in College Admissions

Should race be a factor in college admissions?

Supporters of affirmative action feel that race should factor in to college admissions. They say this helps some students who otherwise wouldn't be considered - and that it makes campuses more diverse and improves the level of education.

Opponents of affirmative action say race should not be a determining factor in college admissions. They say affirmative action unfairly favors minority groups - and that it doesn't guarantee a more diverse college experience.

These are issues the U.S. Supreme Court will be considering in the months ahead, but we're hoping you'll tell us how you feel about them right here.

A boy on the girls' team

Should Jenson Daniel be allowed to play on the girls' volleyball team?

There's no boys' volleyball team at Yonkers High School.  So Jenson Daniel, who hopes to earn a college scholarship in the sport, has been playing on the girls' team.

The state has benched him this year, though.  After a fitness evaluation, officials determined that Jenson is too strong to play on the girls' team.  So while he's allowed to work out with them, he's not allowed to play in games.

What do you think:  Does Jenson's strength give his team an unfair advantage?  Should he be allowed to play if there's no boys' team?
