Positive News for July 29th- Aug. 4th


PRESIDENT BECOMING MORE ACCESSIBLE TO PEOPLE

According to new White House information by an independent study, President Barack Obama of the United States is becoming more accessible to the American people. The study, based on personal testimonies provided by those closest to the president, suggests Mr. Obama and Vice President Biden have given citizens of the United States a better opportunity to encounter the country’s leadership on an unencumbered personal level foreign to previous administrations. This unprecedented access to the most powerful man in the world could certainly offer politically minded Americans the chance to share their personal opinions with the president.

AMERICAN KIDS GETTING LESS D’S

Children in the U.S. have begun receiving fewer D’s according to research conducted by a top American education and research facility. In a culture familiar with an A-F grading scale, the news of fewer D’s comes as a surprise to children’s professionals accustomed to the current state of youth affairs rampant in the United States. The report’s greatest surprise comes with the news that activities such as watching TV, playing video games, and using computers, activities initially regarded as counter-productive to the reduction of D’s, might actually be the greatest combatant against acquiring the almost failing 4th letter of the alphabet. If the current trend were to continue it is possible both C’s and B’s could also become a thing of the past. [click here for silver lining: “Alarm Bells Over Vitamin D Levels in Kids”]

Triple-digit temperatures engulfed most of Washington and Oregon allowing people to experience the same tropical climate they might feel in an exotic vacation locale without ever having to leave the confines of their homes. Although tropical temperatures are fairly new to the Pacific Northwest, the continuation of current global trends could make the area an eventual exotic getaway.
