Below is the note I provided for my AP Students for their class blog with this article:

Why is the FED committing itself to a lower Federal Funds Rate?  Also, I would make a habit of visiting the FED News link on the bottom of your blog once a week from now until test day.  Reason being the FED is a topic students can struggle with and these stories could help put things into perspective on its behavior and role in our economy.  (FED NEWS LINK FROM CNNMONEY)
