After watching the video Precious Knowledge, the first example of ethnic studies being threatened/ facing elimination is that senate is passing bills like 2881 that act against diversity and programs that support and culture beyond what is sought to be “fit” in the American educational system. Programs that promote ethnic studies gives students the pride and knowledge of where they have come from and therefore they feel more engaged in the classroom. Leaders like Tom Horne have the right to their own opinion but are being oppressive by not embracing the culture of different ethnic groups. By not attending these classes and trying to relate to these diverse communities; he is creating a dystopia to the American youth. Political leaders should
Frontlines video “Separate and Unequal” brings up two differing sides to an on growing concern within Baton Rouge. Both sides have one common goal and that is to better the education of their own children. However, with this mutual desire comes conflict with both parties due to the fact that some parents believe that their child is not receiving the best education they can get and thus limiting their child’s future. Frontline though does not choose to focus on this important issue throughout the video and instead alters the situation so it becomes a racial conflict instead.
I found the signing statements the most interesting in Chapter Seven. A signing statement is an announcement made by the president at the time of signing a bill into law. This is used sometimes to show the presidents’ interpretation of the new law and their predictions of the many benefits of the new law. It also has been used to identify sections of the law that are considered improper or unconstitutional. There have been many signing statements throughout history but many of them were not recorded.
After reviewing weeks 5 and 6 video episodes, we the business consultants have found that CanGo still has some issues that must be corrected in order to operate and function effectively. We have carefully evaluated CanGo’s issues and will be introducing them as well as providing recommendations to make corrections to help improve the company’s problem areas. The first issue was the employee evaluations; very vague. Another that we have noticed is that CanGo is expanding too quickly, another issue that follows CanGo expanding too quickly is that they lack the financial capital to grow so quick. Since they are growing, they are relocating their staff into different positions
Monday not long after arriving at the office SAC Mark Pro received a phone call concerning assistance from the GBI for a death in Adel. CSS Kellyn Wilkes was the CSS on call. The other intern “Olivia” and I rode with CSS Wilkes to the scene. Upon arrival, we were still waiting on a search warrant before entering the house. However, since pictures are always taken before entering a house in death investigations we took pictures from different distances as well as vehicles on the property before entering the residence. Additionally, DNA swabs were taken before entering the home as well. I watched and observed as evidence was obtained and as the residence was searched. Afterward, evidenced was logged into an online database and left with the Adel Sherriff department.
We all hear about what a teacher did on social media that was inappropriate all over the internet. But we never really hear about the good things. I read an article in Scholastic, about a teacher named Christopher Casal who a technology teacher for an Elementary school in Brooklyn that uses social media in his classroom and the kids are learning from it. Casal works as a technology teacher for the Magnet School of Math, Science and Design Technology. He has taught for many years and decided to bring Twitter into his classroom. Twitter is a social media website where you can make posts that contain 120 characters that can tell others in a few words are doing or thinking. Casal had the brilliant idea of bringing Twitter into his second grade
The person I choose to share to two videos with and talk to was my mom. Some of the statistics flashed across the screen astonished us. The fact that 43 percent live with basic sanitation was shocking to me. To Americans basic sanitation is something that is expected. If we go into a public restroom and see remnants of another person’s fecal matter we are up hauled and disgusted. To think the almost half the world does not even have a clean toilet. To me, it was a real eye opener.
The Graeters video relates to what we have learned about business and change by showing us that change within a business is virtually inevitable. As times change and technology becomes more apparent, business must also change or use valuable resources to become more efficient to keep up with, or become more successful than the surrounding competition. Graeters experience with change was a bit different than that of other companies. Before technological innovations brought about the refrigerator and modern ice cream machines ice cream was a delicacy, it was something people couldn’t get every day or whenever they desired. In the times after though, many companies began to mass produce ice cream making thousands of gallons per day. Graeters
After watching the Ted Talk video, I do agree with Hanauer and that inequality within the U.S and the triple down theory will only result in a economic decrease for all. What I found convincing was the overcasting theme of not status nor wealth but, the healthy competition for all classes and genders. This statement is logical and yet, fair, his example was that raising the minimum wage is one way to prevent the trickle theory and the decrease of economic growth. Simply, because rising the minimum wages benefits everyone and sets the foundation for a more equal ideology of economic balance pertaining to the United States.
If I was going to college next year I would want to have a personal class about sports and athletes. The video made Monsters University look like a good college. It looked like the students had a lot of freedom when it came to choosing classes and clubs .I think a lot of people should go here because of they much more choices. You could probably even create your own club if you don’t like the choices
In this video Matt Cutts discusses how people can try something that they really always wanted, just for 30 days and, based on the experience of Morgan Spurlock, Matt Cutts proposes removing or adding things in your life for 30 days. He proposes to add things, like biking to work, 10,000 steps a day, take a picture a day or even write a book and also remove things, like TV, sugar, caffeine and twitter, just for 30
In the short video we were presented with, Myth Busters were attempting to venture off and hypothesize whether or not driving while talking on a cell phone was just as dangerous, if not more, than driving while intoxicated. The conditions used to to test this hypothesis are two individuals who were given three driving tests all on the same course, followed by analyzing the results of the driving exams. After configuring the data that they had obtained, they came to the irrefutable conclusion that, although both highly menacing, driving while on a cellular device was much more perilous than driving impaired. Like every other experiment, this too has an independent and dependent variable. The independent variable in this observation are the drivers
Throughout his presentation, Hans Rosling shows that the rich and wealthy release the most carbon emissions, but they are often the ones telling Africa or another developing country they shouldn't begin using fossil fuels and other technology because it's hurting the environment. Rosling claims that the rich end look down at the "poor" people and say, "You cannot live like us, you will destroy the planet." Technology, however, is key to progressing out of poverty and developing. As shown in his graphs, the wealthy release the most emissions, but shake their finger at developing countries that are starting to use technology and/or burn fossil fuels. An example used in the video is Africa and the coal available to them to provide warmth and light.
