I'm choosing to do teen suicide. I found out that an average of 16,375 teenagers 12Ė19 years old, died in the United States, every year from 1999 to 2006.

The subject that I would be interested in doing is the abortion rates in America. About 4 out of 10 unintended pregnancies are aborted, 21% of all pregnancies lead to abortion. Every year 1.21 ,million abortions are preformed.

- 27.4% are single females - 5% are minors unaccompanied by adult - 39% under the age of 18.
- as many as 43% are veterans of the Armed Forces.

About 550 million Big Mac sandwiches are sold each year. This means that one is sold every 17 seconds. I'm not sure how I'm going to represent this yet.

Texting and driving. Even though it is a law in most states that people don't text and drive, I see so many people still doing it thinking they won't get caught. 1 in 5 drivers of all ages confess to surfing the web while driving. Teens who text while driving spend approximately 10% of their driving time outside of their lane.

I have picked the college graduation rates for African Americans in the U.S. The graduation rate is currently at 43% which is very low compared to other races (60%). In 2006 the rate was 46% so it has dropped 3% in that span of time.

Topic I chose is the number of people getting a famous acting career. The likelihood of becoming famous in a field that has fewer than 100,000 workers. Not many people get famous out of the billions of people in the world. Slowly this is going up by 4%

I chose the topic of woman's earnings compared to men's earnings and found that women in almost every state are paid a good $6,000-$8,000 lower than men are. Also that Hispanic women are paid a lot less than Asian American women are.

I've decided to change my topic. A Glamour study was conducted asking women to write down their thoughts about themselves and their bodies over the course of one day. 97% of the women participating expressed thoughts of hating their body at least once.

About 21,000 people die of hunger or hunger related issues every day. That is about one person every four seconds. Unfortunately most are children

im going to do mine on Sixty six percent of all U.S. fourth graders scored "below proficient" on the 2013 National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) reading test, meaning that they are not reading at grade level 1 Even more alarming is the fact that among students from low-income backgrounds, 80 percent score below grade level in reading.

For my project I'm going to explain that video games are a useful thing that can affect your life.

-People who play video games make decisions 25% faster than people who donít.

-A neuroscientist from Germany had 23 people play Super Mario 64 for 30 minutes each day for about 2 months. The neuroscientist noticed that some people had growth in a specific area of their brain. This part of the brain is where navigational skills, memory storage, strategic planning, and motor skills in our hands are at.

Every day nearly 30 people die because of a automobile accident that involved a drunk, that is about one death every 48 minutes.

Although this fear is not quite common, it is rather concerning, as a popular way of communication is speech. The fear I'm glossing over the phobia of speaking in public, or glossophobia. Three out of four people (or 75%) suffer from speech anxiety, and due to said anxiety, most individuals are unable to succeed in life, as this fear holds them back.
