In "Women raise bar at colleges" by Tamar Lewin what matters is that women are succeeding while men are not. Men show up in greater numbers but most don't pass. Men no matter what their race, are less likely than women to get a bachelors degree. In two national studies men reported that they socialized more and studied less. I think the men should work harder because if we stay like this all of the government could one day belong to women.

What I saw in Karl Fisch's video "Did You Know" was what matters and what will happen in life. In 2013 they will invent a supercomputer that will exceed the capabilities of a human brain. Every year the amount of technology doubles every year. China has more honor students than the US. In 2049 a 1000$ computer will be built that exceeds the capabilities of the human race. There are 540,000 words in the English dictionary. They are currently preparing students for jobs that don't exist with technologies that don't exist. I think that one day technology will takeover the human race.
