Everyone in this group has now led a discussion session so we are going to try the same small group idea with open discussion based on 3 articles. There will be no questions, there is no specified group leader and no control. You just have to chat with each other about whatever the articles inspire you to talk about.

3 Articles for discussion this week:

The first one is an interview with Arnie. You don't have to listen to the interview ( unless you want to) just read the article. Your discussion should centre on his thoughts about Oil companies but you can also talk about his views on "metoo"/sexual harassment and Donald Trump.

The second is an article about a japanese made PS4 game. What do you think about this article, the subject matter, the banning/rating of video games in general and what it says about Japanese culture compared to other countries?

The final article is a ted talk about Football and freedom.

https://www.ted.com/talks/marc_bamuthi_joseph_what_soccer_can_teach_us_about_freedom/transcript

Your discussion could talk about why football is played in every country in the world or how it can be a unifying force or what your concept of freedom is or whether sport can be used as a political tool or anything else you want really.

See you on Wednesday.
