I am Curtis Higgins Jr. I am 14 years old and attending Canton High School currently going into the 10th grade. I am attending this class so I can express myself vividly in writing and to enhance my writing and communication skills. My hopes are to become a sports doctor but while in college I would like to play basketball with the dreams to play in the NBA. Later in life, I would like to own a basketball team and this class will help me with my communication skills with others.
Malcolm Gladwell started the debate with a lengthy review criticizing many of Anderson's analogies for how scarcity and abundance operate in a market economy. Seth Godin then responded with a few choice rebuttals, sure to spark further discussion.
Along with this, Waldo Jaquith levies allegations that the book contains overt plagiarism. Anderson himself has responded in kind to the blog post, and it appears some additional notes will be available to coincide with the book's release.
While some of this buzz may be viral marketing, the subject matter still sounds quite interesting. Free will be available for sale in stores July 7, though you can put it on hold at Canton Public Library today.
American history can be thrilling to read about — if you pick up the right books. Try one of these recent suspenseful spy stories:

Spy! by Anna Myers

I am a very quiet person. I don't talk that much and am very shy. Sometimes I want to say something but I don't because I feel scared that someone will hate me if I said that. Even if it is a nice thing to say to someone, I'm still scared. I know that it isn't healthy for my social life, but I can't really help it.
I am a very hard worker. That hasn't always held true, however. In the past, my grades haven't been very good. As soon as I entered the eighth grade, I started getting serious about my grades and my success in school. I think that is because that was my last chance to learn how to get good grades before high school. I knew that high school would be very difficult for me if I didn't start working now. I am glad that I had a good influence around me like my parents and my sister.
I have set myself very high goals that I hope to achieve before I start my career as whatever it is I will become. So far that has been a Chemical Engineer, but I still have quiet a bit of time to decide whether I will actually fully go through with this. Some of the goals that I have set for myself include getting in to The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Another goal that I have set for myself is getting all A's in high school (4.0 G.P.A.). These are my academic goals that I hope to achieve.
My other goals have to do with my health and wellness. I hope to keep a constant workout for the rest of my life. This workout includes running, weight training and swimming. For my wellness, I hope to eat very healthy foods and keep a healthy diet.
I am 12 years old. My favorite sport is golf. I am into hip hop and rap music. I get bored very easily. The exciting things that have happened to me are mostly vacations. I like to watch tv and play outside with my friends. I'm into business and making money. I am not a picky eater and I don't eat everything, but I eat about 90% of the food that my mom makes. My weakest subject in school is Reading. My strongest is math. My parents always tell me that I need to improve in math because they were really good at it when they were younger.I got the sixth highest math score in the grade, but they don't care, they want me to get first. When I go to high school, I want to play golf on a team. My friends go lots of places and I get jealous easily because we never go anywhere on vacation.Those are a few things about me that I want you to know.
[11: 10] Hi my name is Caitlin Berdijo and I'm am now a sophomore at Plymouth High School. I'm not fond of talking about myself because I find it very difficult, but I'll do my best. :] I was born in Detroit, MI on August 4, 1994. Finally, I'm almost 15! One more year and I'll be able to drive! Yay! The past ten years, I have lived in Canton with my mom and dad. It's just us, no other kids in the house, but we do have two cockatiels. I guess those could count as "kids". I'm not really sure. haha. This past year I have recently gotten back into an old love of mine, dance. [Oh my gosh, 11:11... MAKE A WISH! I'm one of those people that believes in miracles and wishes and things like that.] From the age of three till the age of 13, I danced continuously. I was even a competitive dancer for three of those years. Dance was my life. Now my life is more revolved around my school work, friends, family, and the Asian Pacific American Club (APAC); my second family. I joined this club at P-CEP just this year and it has done nothing but help me with my transition from middle school to high school. I have met some of the best people through APAC. We had a show this year, APAC show, and we got to spend a lot of time together through that. We did a lot of cultural dances, four of which I got to be apart of. It was one of the highlights of my year. Oh, and I got to be a team captain of Team APAC for Relay For Life Canton. I got to plan out everything for our team and it was an amazing experience. Some of my hobbies include dance [obviously], playing tennis or any kind of sport really [aside from soccer], reading, listening to music, and writing. I have always had an interest in writing since I was young. My interest hasn't resulted in me wanting a career like journalism, but it has always been a stress reliever for me. When ever I have to get something off of my chest, I just write. I have journals and notes to myself that I have found over the years starting back to when I was in second grade. Hmm, my favorite color is blue and has been for majority of my life, my favorite artist is McFly, a very popular British band in Europe. My favorite music to listen to is... anything. If it sounds good to me, I like it... everything but country, but even then I have my exceptions. My favorite food is Filipino food and sushi. Both of my parents were born in the Philippines so I was raised around Filipino customs and culture and food had a lot to do with it. My personality is really hard to understand for a lot of people. I try my best to be a really positive person and to stay out of drama [which I've been able to do really well, lately]. I'm shy when you first meet me, but if you make an effort to get to know me, that shyness will disappear. I'm really enthusiastic and determined when it comes to getting something done and because of that, I'm a perfectionist. When I grow up, I would like to attend the University of Michigan and study nursing and biology to get a double major and maybe eventually go into medicine. My life long dream is to travel the world. I love new experiences and trying new things. The world has a lot to offer and I want to see what I can of it. [11:15]
