This is an interesting piece that ran on 60 Minutes highlighting studies that are being done about our apps on our cell phones. Pay special attention to the second part (6:08-the end) and the studies that are being done to increase your time on your cell phone and how it effects the brain. You may want to jot down a couple of notes along the way so that you can complete the paragraph in the google quiz below.

Flowing Data - Here is a cool site displaying all types of data in interesting ways. Explore the site. Click on "see more" under Recent and Features. Look under Categories and Favorites. Pick one display page that is interesting to you. Be able to write a paragraph on it in the second Google quiz below. What is the display about? What is facinating about it? What surprised you? Where did the data come from? (see nerd notes at the bottom of each display).
