Top Back to School Gadgets 2011

One way to beat the back to school blues is to check out some of the cool high-tech gadgets that can help you get top marks this year! We’ve got the scoop on the best new back to school gadgets for 2011 right here on Kidzworld!

No. 1: Web Radios

Waking up in the morning is never easy. But the latest Android-powered web radios make rising and shining a little easier to handle. These types of radios usually feature an alarm clock, webcam, remote control, touchscreen and more, plus access to as many as 50,000 web radio stations (translation: you can wake up to the sweet sounds of soft rock or giggle your way to the shower listening to your favorite comedy stations!).

No. 2: Touch Monitors

“Can’t touch this” doesn’t apply here. New HD touch monitors add touchscreen technology to your desktop PC and laptop. Many of these monitors offer a multi-touch feature for different applications, plus come with cool space-saving designs, like two side legs, to let you touch it just about anywhere!

No. 3: iPad Cases

This year when you walk into class, chances are you and your friends will be using your iPads to take notes and do schoolwork. If that’s the “case,” you’re gonna need the perfect case. Some of the latest designs include removable Bluetooth keyboards for easy typing on your iPad!

No. 4: Laptop Bags

No. 5: Noise-Cancelling Headphones

If you’re searching for some peace and quiet for a study session, check out a pair of noise-cancelling headphones (we love SOUL by Ludacris!). The latest models feature powered amplification for studio-quality balance (read: deep bass and crystal-clear mids and highs), comfy over-ear design to seal in sound and block out noise and are even iPhone Ready with an in-line remote and mic so you don’t miss calls from friends!

No. 6: USB Drives

Working on a group project and need to take important files with you? Try a USB drive – tiny pieces of tech heaven that can store as many as 32 GB of data, music, videos and more! Look for one that’s tough and rugged so it doesn’t get beat up in your backpack, or one that comes with a lanyard so you can keep it close at all times!

No. 7: Smash Pad

Being in school can be tough: late-night essay writing, all-day study sessions, extra-curricular activities, after-school clubs. Let out your stress in a healthy way with a customizable “smash pad” designed to take all the abuse you can dish out during a temper tantrum so that you can get rid of your pent-up anger and get back to whatever got you riled up in the first place.

If you take a pregnancy test, it shows positive, and then you go to a feminine doctor to make sure, do you get an ultrasound? No because you won't find a heartbeat. You get a blood test, or maybe even a pee sample. A child heart's start beating after 22 days of conception. A women does not have an abortion before 22 days (or even right after). It's extremely dangerous.

You get a blood test, or maybe even a ##### sample. Heartbeat is not the measure of living or not living. Many organisms don't even have hearts. It is 'alive', but not conscious. I think that's the more important distinction.  Yes this is true. But let me put it this way. Let's say a 13 year old girl got pregnant against her will. She, and her baby, may not make it through the birth. And with the possibilty of her death and the baby's, you'll still say that she can not get an abortion? That is just not right.

However, we do not treat all death or all killing the same way, and I do not believe that locking people in prison for abortion is going to resolve the fact that sometimes women will try to get rid of their pregnancies.   With all crime, making it illegal will not resolve it. But it will slim down immensely. Okay but now we're imprisoning otherwise productive members of society, for the goal of 'sending a message' that society doesn't approve of abortion. I think that's rather totalitarian.

But it will slim down immensely. That's definitely NOT how crime works. When you make something illegal that people want you just create an unsafe market for it. Prohibition is the best example of this
