Partial Government Shutdown

It's not something you see every day; the last time the U.S. government "shut down" was in the 1990s.  And it's up to Congress and the president to come to an agreement that would end it.

In the meantime, given the information you've heard about it and the reports on who would (and who wouldn't) be affected, we'd like to get your take on the partial U.S. government shutdown.

College Athletes and the NCAA

College athletes don't get paid to play.  But many of them do get scholarships, which can offset the cost of their education.

After seeing Wednesday's report involving college athletes and the NCAA, please give us your take on the rules and the protest.

Saggy Pants

...Not every day I get to blog about that.

Fred Davis, a former civil rights activist, has bought out a billboard in Memphis, Tennessee.  His message to young men:  "Show your mind, not your behind."

Part of his concern is that folks who sag their pants are actually hurting themselves by projecting an image that would cause people who don't know them to judge them.  Yet some of those who wear their jeans low say the only statement they intend to make is a fashion statement.

Where do you stand on the saggy pants debate?

Your Message to the Universe

There's a record floating into space on the Voyager spacecraft, and it contains everything from greetings in multiple languages to sounds commonly heard on Earth. Of course, it was recorded back in the 1970s, so we're not talking digital audio here.  But it brings up an interesting question:  If you were to record something that would be put on a spacecraft and sent out into the universe, what would you say?  And what would that say about you?

U.S. Intervention in Syria?

Do you think the U.S. should take military action in Syria?
The Obama Administration has been considering limited, U.S. military strikes against Syria, following the news that chemical weapons might have been used in Syria's civil war.  Both the Syrian government and the rebels fighting it blame each other for using these weapons.  But President Obama says that if it turns out that the Syrian government used them, it would have crossed a "red line" - which may mean that the U.S. military could get involved.

Do you think it should?

Working For Nothin’?

In a competitive job market, gaining on-the-job experience can be crucial to jumpstarting your career. But, as we see in today’s show some students are feeling they need to take creative steps just to afford living during their unpaid internships. Working for free comes with a cost and may not be an option for everyone. But, it could lead to a full-time job in the future. We want to know what you think. Would you be willing to take an unpaid internship?

Advice for Grads

In our most recent Quick Poll, we asked high school seniors what their plans were after graduation.  Most of those who responded - about 67% - said they were headed to college or trade school.  About 28% said they were joining the military, and 5% were undecided.

Wherever they're headed, though, we'd like to know what advice you'd give to the Class of 2013.

Overcoming Adversity

Chelesa Fearce was homeless for most of the time she was in high school.  Sometimes, she went hungry; sometimes, she slept in her family's car.  But she never gave up on her education.  Instead, she excelled at it.

She scored a 1900 on the SAT.  Her GPA was 4.46.  She was her school's valedictorian, graduating with enough credits to enter college as a junior.  It's an unusual and incredible story of overcoming adversity, and it's proof of what can be achieved when someone doesn't give up.

If you have any stories of your own that involved overcoming the odds, we'd love to hear them.  They don't have to be as dramatic as this one; anytime you've faced hardship and persevered counts.
