A Sea otter in a Colorado Springs zoo escaped on Saturday. The zoo people believe the otter named Kitchi is in a neighborhood near the zoo. They are considering sending a small robot to nudge the otter out. Kitchi is 25 pounds and 4 feet long. this matters because I love sea otters and would this little guy be able to survive in the different environment? Not many zoo animals can survive out in the "wild" after being in a pen.

IN the article "Glenwood springs man arrested on child pornography charge" by the Denver post it says that a 22 year old man named Michael Bruce was arrested at his girlfriend's house after eing caught with child pornography. This matters because that is just messed up. This was the second time he got caught. This guy is sick. He is being charged with one class three felony count of sexual exploitation of a child-distribution and two class four felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child-possession. This matters because a lot of the mothers out there will be even more worried about their child's security and safety.

A 38 year old man was jogging and listening to his ipod on the beach in California. The ipod blocked out the sound of a small stealth aircraft that hit him, killing him instantly. He was married with two kids. His name was Robert Gary Jones. The plane lost its propeller and the pilot was blinded by oil on the windshield. This matters because someone lost a son, a father, and a husband. My question is how did the plane break down to begin with. Surely someone checked it before its take off. I think this terrible accident was easily preventable.

In the article "Working At a Med Pot Shop? You're a Budtender" by Cindy Sutter it explained that many people are wanting to get into medical marijuana as a career. They would be called budtenders. I think this is wrong because most budtenders are still in college. Many of them former patients for snowboard injuries. Students should not be around this sort of stuff. It could change their whole school career. A snowboard injury shouldn't require medical marijuana depending on the damage. Many terminal disease patients don't even use medical marijuana. My opinion on this is that it should not be tolerated.

On Feb. 27 a great earthquake hit Chile. It was an 8.8 on the Richter scale and caused a very great amount of damage to the land. This matters to the world because now with the add on of Chile all the relief funds for Haiti probably wont be as much. With 2 devastating earthquakes the world needs to work together so that victims can live a normal life again. I find this interesting because I was just learning about the different plate boundaries that cause earthquakes. This particular earthquake was caused by a convergent boundary where one plate sub-ducts under another one.
