Sadly, graduation is for seniors only, as they receive their diplomas leaving their younger friends…behind. But enthusiastically, our early grad seniors flock back for the grand ceremony, diplomas, and celebrations.
There are so many ceremonies throughout San Diego county this time of year—and just like the spring scattering of purple Jacaranda blossoms—the thrown-graduations caps will joyfully drift downwards announcing the end of our seniors’ youthful spring, as they commence the summer of their adult lives. Congratulations to all the seniors for their hard work during their four lengthy years of high school.
Kearny high schools graduation is on the Summer Solstice: the last day of school: June 21st. The ceremony begins at 5:00, and there is not an official set ending time.
Congrats to all the seniors who made it to the end and plan on carrying their educational journey into college.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission usually announces at least one product recall daily. Sometimes they go unnoticed by consumers; other times, buyers are injured-or worse. There are 10 notable product recalls ranging through the years 1978-2016. Here is a description of a few of those recalls.
Ford Pinto (1978): Fuel tank caused fires after collisions, 7 deaths and 24 injuries.
Fitbit (2014):10,150 injuries related to skin rashes, and Fitbit recalled 1.1 million Fitbit Force Wrist fitness trackers after some buyers had allergic reactions to the materials.
Hoverboards (2016): Fire risk incidents are not tallied yet, but currently, there are at least 52 Hoverboard related fires.
There are probably a thousand more recalls that have happened in the past and may happen in the future. So, remember to always be aware of all recalls because it might just so happen that you have one of the recalled products.
