The article “Man guilty in Aspen-linked bomb plot” by The Denver Post matters because it shows that people will do almost anything to get revenge. Today, jurors in Tuscon Arizona found Ronald Young guilty. Young had killed Gary Triano because Triano’s ex-wife, Pamela Phillips, paid him $400,000 to do so. Young had placed a pipe bomb in Triano’s town car, and on the way to a party Triano’s town car exploded killing him. this article matters because it is hard to imaging somebody hating another person so much they pay someone $400,000 to kill him.
The article “A different kind of company name” by Google is shocking. Today, April 1st, google changed its name to Topeka because Topeka Kansas supposedly changed their name to Google. The first time I read this my jaw was hang in shock, but then I realized today was April Fools day and laughed it off. Not only is this amusing, but also a great marketing strategy because of new software that could be named Topeka. This article matters because millions of people use Google a day and would be disappointed if they changed their name.
