It could also up the crime rate because people with homemade RFID device... more

    What I found most challenging about writing my paper was trying not to use my sources too much. In the past, I have been corrected on my papers to not rely as heavily on my sources for information. I tried really hard to only use a tiny bit of information from each sources and then build off of the information. Anther ... more

    My experiences in previous English classes have not been too great. Most of the time it left a sour taste in my mouth after the class ended.
