    Why Politics Matter - January 25, 2016 by admin

    In writing my first blog about politics, I really wasn’t sure where I should begin. Politics sometimes can be a touchy subject matter and I wasn’t sure if I should just dive right in and take a stance on something I believe in, or start with something a bit lighter.Constitution

    While thinking about that for awhile, a different point of view struck me. Not everyone may be into politics, and younger people do seem to be the most detached. Since this site is geared towards helping young people, it seemed appropriate to set issues aside and start from the beginning asking the simple question, why do politics really matter?

    Before I try and tackle that question I think its best to try and define what politics actually is. While reading  essay about What is Politics, I decided I probably couldn’t define it any better, so just go to the site and read this brilliantly written article on what politics really is.

    Anyway, back to the matter at hand, why do politics matter to us? Politics guide and influence our society, ranging from many of these important topics and issues, but not limited to:

    • Defining laws through our legal system
    • Providing protection through military defense
    • Influencing our economy
    • Guiding our foreign affairs
    • Providing Environmental security

    All of these have a direct impact on the way we live our lives. Becoming knowledgeable and involved in politics, in my opinion, is the natural way to improve our society and our lives. Feel free to leave comments as to why politics matter to you.

    The YouTube for Gamers! - January 11, 2016 by admin

    We are all well aware of the success of YouTube since its creation around February of 2005. Since YouTube has been such a success, there have been many spin-offs of the site recently. For those “gamers” out there, this is one of those sites you will not want to miss.

    Welcome to — the YouTube for gamers. By using this site, people can record in-game videos and post them for everyone to see. The site provides a desktop client for users to record their video, thus eliminating the usage of software for this process, which typically slows down computers. The client currently only works on Windows operating systems.

    The site has much of the same feel as does YouTube. You can browse the database of videos and screenshots and leave comments if you like. All in all, this looks to be a fun site that gamers can enjoy.
