New Facebook Group Page

The other day while on facebook I saw on my News Feed that someone just joined a group called F*ck The Boscawen PD. Boscawen, NH is my hometown and seeing this I felt kind of upset for the Boscawen PD because here are some cops just trying to do their job and stop havoc from happening around town and keep its community members safe. Who is stupid enough to create such a group when every single police officer from this town is on facebook and can find it very easily.

Boscawen PD

There are 155 members at the moment and at the beginning when this page was first started people were leaving comments like "I've gotten arrested 4 times, f*ck the Boscawen police!" Obviously you got arrested for a reason, I know the Boscawen police don't just go around arresting people for fun, they need a reason! The one comment that gets me the most is, "I see the Boscawen PD every time I'm in Boscawen.. don't they have anywhere else to be!! come on." The Boscawen PD is supposed to be out patrolling the roads and protecting their town. Where else should they be?

Now there are more people on the group saying keep up the good work directing those comments at the Boscawen PD but the original kids that joined to complain about the police still are complaining about them. Hopefully soon they will realize what the police can access and these people will delete their comments and stop putting comments up about the police, since they are just doing their job.

I don't think people understand that it isn't that hard for a POLICE OFFICER to trace down your name and figure out where you live and if you have a car what your license plate number is so that way if you do even one minor thing wrong they will probably not take it so easy on you!

Nike+

The other day I was looking at new running sneakers and I came across the Nike+. I've seen them around for a little while now, but I never fully understood what made them so unique. Now after doing some research I see that it can track your distance, calories burned, pace, and amount of time you spent running. 

         

There are two different types of devices you can use to track all of the above information; a Nike+ enabled iPod with the iPod Sport Kit or a Nike SportBand.

You do need to get special Nike shoes to make sure there is a spot to insert the Sport Kit. The Sport Kit goes in under the Nike+ has a wide variety of shoes to pick through, so each person should be able to find one they love and a price they can love too (ranging from $40-$185)!

Nike+ is doing a good job trying to promote physical exercise and getting people motivated. They even have goals you can set for yourself or challenges you can participate in that include people worldwide.  Hopefully more people will become encouraged to get active!

Hershey's Easter Candy

I never understood why there is certain candies for certain holidays. I understand maybe changing the coloring of the candy or the shapes to make them coincide with the holidays, but why make certain candies only available during those times?

I always get so excited when Valentine's Day is over and all the Easter candy comes out on the shelves. This is the only time out of the year that my absolute very candy is available to purchase in stores, Hershey's candy coated milk chocolate eggs. Hershey's Easter EggsI have tried again and again to find a candy similar to this candy but none compare. I don't understand why these are only available for the Easter season. Hershey's could easily just change the color of the candy coating and make this product available year round.

The only positive about not having this candy year round is that I will stay healthier. In one bag of these Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs the nutrition facts are:

ResNorth Housing

Spring is here and in college that means picking a place to live when returning in the fall! It gives students something to look forward to but can also be nerve racking at the same time since you never know if you'll get into the Res Hall or Apartment of your choice.

Langdon

Next fall I hope to be able to get a spot in the Langdon Woods suites with 3 of my friends but when I started looking into the ResNorth Housing Selection Process process I realized that students that already live in ResNorth get the choice before other students around the campus to keep their spot or change to another spot that is located in the ResNorth area. I don't see how that is fair. Why do the students that already live there have the upper hand of the draw? I realize that a lot of upperclassmen  live in these areas, but the ranking numbers are based by student's age and credits earned. For the most part that means that they should have a high enough ranking that they would be above underclassman anyways.

I think that the housing process should be just by ranking number. That would give more of a equal chance for everyone to get into the dorms/apartments that they would like to live in.
