Journal 1- Broken Child I need to start by admitting that this video was difficult to watch! Within a few seconds of watching the video I was reminded of the level of difficulty of the social work profession. As described in the video, Child Protection Services’ role is to protect children
I saw many things that were in the video unlike what I saw in the book or things I read that weren’t like the movie in “The Speckled Band”. These differences varied from visual differences some physical and some changes in the actions of people.
The first thing I liked about this clip was the girls’ confidence. This greatly had a huge impact on the overall video and on me because these girls were confident with what they were saying. Anybody can say claims and counterclaims regarding what they are speaking for but, if they don’t have a loud, clear and strong
Jacob Pope F.A.T City Reaction Paper While watching the F.A.T City video, I must first say that it was an amazing video and that Richard Lavoie should win an award, if he hasn’t already. In this reaction paper, I’ll review some of the same difficulties that I went through as a younger
Journal 3 What is the tone of this video? What is the purpose? Who is the audience? Did you like the video, or not? Why?
1. The motion picture I picked is Spike Lee's 1997 4 Little Girls. 2. I picked this film because of the strong message it is meant to put across, considering that Lee wanted the world to acknowledge that while society had experienced significant progress up to the turn of the century,
That video seemed to build credibility at the beginning through the news room background but lost the credibility, in my eyes, through the offensive language used by multiple people in the video. Also the credibility was lost when the “news anchor” did not seem too interested in talking about the topic by saying things like “a desperate attempt”. Also one of the “witnesses” says “I’m an older man, so you can trust what I say”, to try to build his personal credibility. There is also a expert mentioned to assist the speaker to help persuade his audience while making his point. Personally, I did not find any pathos in the video, but did spot some logos. There were a couple of graphs shown, which shows a sign of fact in the video, but they didn’t help the speaker and his point because his credibility was destroyed by the language
Watching the video has educated me to think differently and not to form conclusions based on what I see on TV. I cannot say I can relate to anything that had happened to everyone in the video, but being an African myself I feel like there a lot of
I even saw some people crying while watching the video. I felt that some people were crying because it reminded them of their loved ones who struggled through it or maybe their ancestors are from that part of history. It made me realized their feelings toward those people and country.
First, I thought the videos were very fascinating but also very hard to watch and very disheartening. It’s amazing to see how the treatment of those suffering from mental illnesses has improved in recent years, but it’s also unbelievable that some treatments were ever used. I am not a doctor and do not have any medical training, but it’s hard to believe that making people have seizures and go into a coma was a beneficial way to treat mental illnesses. It’s also hard to wrap my mind around the fact that someone would ever intentionally put something into someone’s brain to lessen the brain’s
The video was very emotional and touched me on a very deep level. I’m only 22 and I’m just starting to experience death. My Aunt recently passed in May and she was terminally ill for a couple months. The ordeal was very difficult to deal with because she was very secretive about it. She did not want the family to worry, so she withheld information from everyone, including her daughter. Watching this video really helped me see what my Aunt was going through personally. However, she tried every preventative surgery the doctor’s offered her, and the family thinks the constant surgeries are what hastened her death. Each story was sad and difficult to watch. What each person was going through did not just affect them, it affected everyone around them. The wife from the first story described her emotions as a “cycle of anger and depression.” She also had to hire a nurse to help care for him. The wife from the other story took care of her husband until she could not deal with his agitation longer, so she put him in hospice care.
The least I liked about this material was how unfair the border patrols treat human beings. The second video is revolting how border patrols sexual abuse woman trying to cross back to the US. I didn’t like about the videos how many people had died, trying to cross and the border patrols don’t communicate with the families about the people who died. My point of view of this videos shows how nobody cares, how many Mexicans died, some of them they were trying to have a better life. These stories about how young people dying and families increasing upsets me. In my perspective people don’t want to live in Mexico because Mexico’s economy is miserable. I’m hoping people can created more programs to help all these illegal people with food, opportunities,
To understand someone, you have to have a strong education on every part of their culture, their land, and what groups of people are there and how each one is unique. The difference of having and not having a knowledge of this can make all the difference in the world. Without it, you would walk past someone and see them kneeling in front of a dresser with a little statue with burning sticks around it, mumbling to themselves. You wouldn’t understand it, and possibly think they aren’t stable human beings. If you knew of this culture and walked past, you would see someone kneeling at a shrine praying to their version of god and burning incense. How you see something is all about understanding, and that is not able to happen without knowledge.
Surprisingly, as I watched the documentary I was able to relate to some of it and had some questions/ things that stood out to me. The first thing that popped out to me was when they asked the audience “Have you ever had a moment when it felt like everything
I find that this video blow I away and really took my attention to problem in the world. The first story about maternal mortality really took for surprise and had me thankful to be born into American cultures. The cultures are one of the whole role in the subject being shown in the movie. The maternal mortality the women did it because they thought that they were slowing down the sex drive of women and that it was God will for the young women to be cut. The part where the woman ask the lady will she let her on date a woman whom did not do cultures, and she said no because of that is God’s will. Another factor I saw was in intergenerational prostitution part, most women’s job was already decide for them before they were born. Most low income
