Passion Project Update and Reflections

    So far I think that my passion project is going fine. For those of you who don't know what my project is, it is about video games. I am trying to figure out what makes video games so good compared to others as well as the top games in certain categories. The categories are Arcade, FPS, Horror, Competitive FPS, Racing, indie, and as many Free to play games as I cam find to apply for the categories previously. My progress on this so far has gone decent, I think i need to use my time more wisely and concentrate on finding the more reliable information I can find. Some things I can anticipate are not using my time wisely and MANY blocked websites. Thanks for reading this.

Government Involment

    These people are anti-NSA and they began protesting about the organization apparently violating their privacy and the 4th Amendment of the US constitution. They used the holiday of Independence day to help draw attention to it as they flooded the streets protesting with the slogan "Restore the Fourth". They believe that they think that since they were violated that the entire organization should be shutdown at once. They also believe that programs like Prism should stopped because it allows unreasonable searches without warrents .

Grades? or is it Grades!

In my opinion I think that grades are used to be a checkpoint for the students. They can be used for showing the students progress as well. Sometimes they are full of BS (Burnt Sausage).
       The current system in my opinion is kind of unfair and useless. For example it doesn't where and how you are doing bad in something. I like how they have a percent so you can compare the grades to a letter grade easily. But, it doesn't show that your doing bad in a certain subject or activity.
      The standardized system is good, because it always shows the exact thing you aren't doing right, or are doing great in, also it is based straight off the common core standards.
       In my opinion I think that there should be some sort of mix between the normal 100 point grading system and have a mix with the standardized grading as well, so students know what they are doing bad in as well as being able to see the letter grade of it all together.
