A good reaction arises in me when I see the union of society as you can clearly see in these videos analyzed; For example, in the video the movie Holding Ground part 2 About the Dudley Street Initiative in South Boston and Cabrini Green in Chicago, clearly see as a culture is work of a neighborhood in a way that reaches social neglect and harms the community general because poor hygiene and poor services become absolute owner and harm the good development of that community.
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
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
The first video I watched was entitled “Murderball”, which documented the lives of the members on the United States wheelchair rugby team. It began with an introduction of each of the players and the stories of how they became quadriplegics. During these introductions, the players also talked about the stigma that comes along with their handicap and how able-bodied individuals treat/talk to them. The video then shows the team playing in the world championship for wheelchair rugby against several other countries but particularly the U.S.’s rival, Canada. Watching this video further addresses the difference between being impaired and handicapped. These individuals do not consider themselves handicapped but see that they have an impairment that
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.
A highway patrol officer in Ohio is being hailed as a hero. He saved the life of a truck driver after his semi-truck crashed. The officer's name is John Devers. There is a dash cam video that captured the accident, and the aftermath of it.
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.
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
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 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
Although it might seem wise to break immersion in all games, as Gotterbarn justly notes, immersion can have a positive influence too. Gotterbarn correctly states that "sometimes the impact [of immersion] is positive and useful" as social learning in videogames can give rise to "intrinsic motivation... so powerful that [players] are motivated to learn, and even search for solutions outside the game"(369-370) . Basically what he is saying is people can get so immersed in a game that their brain records the action as if it were actually being performed. I can personally attest to this, I used to play this game called Misamata which was about a scientist that washes up on a island with a plague and has to discover the cure for humanity and himself.
This video is a lecture by Jean Kilbourne. She is the creator of several films in the Killing us Softly series, which deal with the exploitation of women in advertising. She is also a famed author, speaker and political advisor.
Something I found particularly interesting in the “Mya Renaissance” video was the architecture that the Mayans created. The structures that they built were beautiful. The structures were the largest structures outside ancient Egypt at the time. It amazes me that they can build structures so vast without the equipment that we have today. It also is unbelievable that many of these structures are still standing today because of how well they were built. It was also interesting to me how the cities were laid out according to the cardinal directions of Mayan belief. The structures were created for specific events and used as markers for the Mayans. The “El Castillo pyramid at Chichen Itza” is particularly interesting because it catches the light
The woman in the clip is not happy with the commitment of the guy as he has failed her. She grabs her collar and hangs her up and as the guy begs her for mercy, she plans a different way of giving what she thinks he deserves. She tears his t-shirt up and attempts a bit of foreplay. She further loses her jacket to display her cleavage and to make him excited. As the guy in the clip thinks s that she is going to intimate with him, she takes an alter from her back and plays with it on his body. She puts it on his neck and slits his throat spilling blood all over her cleavage. She then rubs it o her as she fancies the punishment that she has executed.
