maura weir homework #10

Double Entry Research Log
"Techo Ride." PC Magazine (June-July 2007): n. pag. PDF file.
Magazine Article
This article is about navigation systems in cars, and how they track people. It talks about how a U.S. Govenor was going 91 mph before he crashed. He was in trouble because the tracking system caught him.
"New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine's SUV was doing 91 mph moments before the accident that nearly killed him. We know, because a black box told us so."(Pg. 1 on PDF)
"If you're worried about an encroaching brave new world in which our every action in a car is monitored, you're too late."(Pg. 1 on PDF)  -good quote to use as in attention getter.
 Then the article compares the good with the bad in having car trackers. -I think having car trackers is a good idea.
The paragraph on the  govenors case is a good one-i should use it.
Questions tracking on cars.
 This article was not very useful. I don't think i will use it a lot during my paper.

Second Source

Richardson, Michelle. "Is Big Brother Watching?" Vindy. N.p., n.d. Web. 2 Oct. 2011. 
 An article on a website.
This article begins talking about how surveillance has expanded since 9/11. It says that even innocent American are labeled as terrorists. It also goes into the fourth amendment.  -This page starts out against big brother watching.
“If you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.”(Pg. 1 of website) -Some people ask this question.

 Then the article talks about how innocent people are sometimes targets. Then this quote comes “If you’re not doing anything wrong, why is the government snooping on you?”( pg. 1 of website)- use these quotes.
After 9/11, Congress hastily passed the Patriot Act, the first of many changes to surveillance laws making it easier for the government to spy on you without having any evidence, or even suspicion you’ve done something wrong, often with no meaningful judicial oversight.  - Good paragraph in the article, i should use this.
This is a very useful and informational article. I will refer to this article a lot, but not too much, when i am writing my paper.
