Can you hear me now? Well now all Verizon Wireless customers can hear crystal clear with the best phone on the market. Apple’s best-selling iPhone 4 is America’s favorite “toy” that everyone desires to have. Many AT&T customers say that they love the iPhone but do not love AT&T. Now customers can enjoy the attributes of the iPhone with full bars almost anywhere in the country and users at AT&T can switch to Verizon’s iPhone for better coverage and high-speed internet. AT&T needs to step up their game if they want to continue to be the “champion” of cell phone companies.

When you hear the lunch bells ring, it would be in your best interest to move out of the way because hungry students show no mercy, when running through the halls to their feast. Although, “feast” is probably not the most fitting word now that First Lady Michelle Obama is considering condensing our lunch portions at school. Does she really think that this will help with our obesity issues? This will only increase the amount that students eat. We already receive very small portions, forcing us to purchase extra. Condensing portion sizes even more that they already are will only increase the amount of money we spend on extra food. The First Lady needs to understand that there are other options rather than starving students across the country, and hopefully she will realize this before she makes any drastic decisions.

For Punxsutawney Phil, it was another ordinary Groundhog’s Day. Although he was unaware of the excitement he would soon stir up, he peered out of his hole on February 2nd to find that his shadow was no where to be found.This means that we will have an early Spring. With the crazy weather patterns and the early dismissals from school, everyone is overjoyed to bring out their sandals and shorts a little earlier this year. In the past two weeks, we have had beautiful, sunny weather that has given everyone a reason to pull out the swim suits and soak up the sun. Hopefully, with Phil’s good luck, we will have many more sunny days to look forward to.

The Grammy Awards is always something to look forward to. This year viewers, audience members, and nominees alike patiently awaited the “Best New Artist” award, only to find out that the winner was Esperanza Spalding. Of course, the entire nation was shocked with these results; especially when you have great nominees such as Drake, Justin Bieber, Florence & The Machine, and Mumford and Sons. Although I am not partial to the “Bieber Fever,” I would have much rather seen him walk away with the Grammy, rather than Ms. Spalding take the floor with her outrageous hair-do and her shocked appearance. Most viewers, myself included, do not even know who she is, or how to pronounce her name. Where in the world did Esperanza Spalding come from and how did she win? These are questions that many viewers would like to know the answers to.
