    1. She has been very well for some time now. Perhaps she has come to stay

      Didn't really notice this before! Foreshadowing? Also along with further in the chapter when Ezinma becomes sick again and she is Okonkwo's favorite daughter . . . and he actually shows emotion by caring for this daughter which kinda goes against his "Manly man" portrayal

    2. In his day he was lazy and improvident and was quite incapable of thinking about tomorrow.

      Hey before I start annotating, I'm just a little confused if I have to do #7 right now too? Confused, sorry. Anyways! This part of the book really character development to Okonkwo, not his father Unoka, but Okonkwo. This really describes why Okonkwo is the way he is. Okonkwo throughout the whole book does things out of fear because he does not want to be viewed like his father. Even though Okonkwo could still relax and be easy going and people would still view him as a powerful man, but he feels he has to be a man to the extreme of this community. Never let the wives ever mess up, don't let the son stop working, and so on.

    1. Influential restaurant analyst Howard Penney warned on Tuesday that Chipotle's (CMG) stock could crumble by another 50% as the burrito chain struggles to rebound from the damage inflicted by outbreaks of E. coli, norovirus and salmonella.

      My Bias in this article made me laugh! From the start when i read this article i was surprised to learn that my believes about why the market in Chipotle is crashing was true. I have only eat at Chipotle one time and thats because when people talk about Chipotle its always jokes about the after effect of eating it. so when i read the title i said to myself "well if they stopped giving people food poisoning they wouldn't have this problem". Then i was right. http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/06/investing/chipotle-stock-crash/index.html?iid=hp-stack-dom

    1. The impact of the controversy on his jersey sales is clear. Mike Rosenberg of the Seattle Times pointed out Kaepernick's jersey ranked 20th in sales on San Francisco's website before the situation made national news. It's now skyrocketed to the top spot in just a few weeks.

      Looking at this article the main story is the quarterback for the 49ers protests to not stand during the flag for the purpose he says to support the black lives matter organization. At the same time it seems like the news is using the new jersey sales the quarterback is gaining because of this protest. To implicate that he could be doing this for personal gain or that his cause is actually being more supported. My bias allowed me to believe that he could be doing this for personal gain, but when thinking about the cause it seems that it couldn't be true. It seems the news is trying to take away from the purpose that Kaepernick first expressed. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2661838-colin-kaepernick-has-49ers-top-selling-jersey-since-national-anthem-protest
