1: World Cultures

2: Guatemala's Ex-police Chief Arrested On Friday Aug. 31, 2012 Guatemala's former police Chief, Erwin Sperisen was arrested due to connection to several murders in Guatemala during 2004- 2007. In 2007 Sperisen resigned after eight murders raised suspicion against senior officers being linked to drug gangs. Why is this important? This proves we can not always trust everyone, we need to be very careful who we open up to. Guatemala is most likely hurting realizing someone they trusted for so long to keep them safe was really the person putting them in danger.

3: This could cause mass chaos in Guatemala and their citizens could end up rebelling against their government thinking they will not protect them. If Guatemalan citizens rebel there will be war between the government and the people, this could lead to children being forced into wars at young ages. Wars tear families apart, these people will end up losing loved ones and not being able to provide for their families due to only being able to fight in the war and stuck in constant fear. All because of one man they thought they could trust.

4: Reach for the Stars with Will I am Wednesday August 29 NASA partnered up with Will I am to transmit the first song to mars. The song played was Will I am’s new single “Reach for the Stars.” Will I am has a strong passion for science and technology which got him thinking about partnering with NASA. Many people came to watch history be made including a high school and kindergarten that Will sponsors.

5: This is important because this will lead to more scientific advances in society. With these advances the world will be a different place. We will know new things we have never known before. Not only did this person make a big impact on the world, so can we.

6: 7 bodies found Seven bodies that had been burned were found in the western Mexican state of Michoacan on September 23, 2012. 17 other bodies were found at this location earlier that week. After drug cartels in 2012 5,300 people disappeared. This is a huge deal because drugs are constantly overtaking Mexico and the people in it. This is very important to the world.

7: This is important because we need to stop drug cartels in Mexico. If we stop these cartels people will feel safe and be able to live freely. Isn't that what we want in life? To not have to worry? We need to stop this drug cartel so people can live without fear.

8: Actor killing landlord On Saturday September 29, 2012 Los Angeles CNN reported the “Sons of Anarchy” actor Johnny Lewis was suspected for murdering his landlord. Police say landlord Kathleen Davis was beaten to death in her home. She suffered from severe head trauma and later died.

9: Johnny Lewis suffered from mental problems along with drug addiction. Earlier this year he was sent into treatment for his addiction. If we would've cured Johnny's problems we could have saved a life.

10: Pakistan Flooding CNN reported on Saturday September 29, 2012 over 3,000 people were injured in Pakistan due to flooding from monsoon rains. 422 people have been reported dead. 350,000 people have been forced to leave their homes for safety 15,000 villages have been dangered and many destroyed.

11: Natural disasters are a huge problem that we can not solve. They cause damage physically, emotionally and mentally. We should all be prepared for these events, although that is not always possible.
