Segment #1: In the News - What happened this week?

President Obama's SOTU: A couple cool things happened in the SOTU speech. If you watched it online you could see a Keynote version of the speech.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kl2g40GoRxg  He has set the bar for all incoming Presidents to engage their audience with Technology. That's big.

Someone released an enhanced version that is pretty sweet.

He also did something many think is uncool. He said that it should be mandatory for every student to graduate high school. Check that out. Should graduating high school be mandatory?
