holocaust

I learned a lot of different things. I learned what propaganda meanings are, I learned what the 25 point program means, I learned about each event and what time it happen and what was happening to build up to the holocaust. I like how much information they gave us. They were very thorough with the information they were giving us. On the time line they gave you a brief description but if you clicked on the picture and it would go more in depth to what they were actually doing and what was happening. I didn't know that still to today there is more things going on with the holocaust. There are museums opening up everywhere. I learn that Hitler actually became leader and in control of power in 1933. I thought that this website was amazing. It was full of information and I learned so many things. This is a great website to get all the information you would need for a project over the holocaust. I really like the art gallery and actually seeing things and pictures of people that had to go through concentration camps. Its really scary how this happened and I would hope that this wouldn't happen today. 
Uncle Sam is trying to get you do something to make it better for a country as a whole, here they are trying to get you to join the army so that they can win the war. 
This symbolizes that Obama is the hope for the untied states to make it better. 

Pepsi

I thought that the pepsi assembly was good. It wasn't one of their best though. Their assembly's are always really thought out and they do a good use of technology, clips of tv shows and music clips. I thought the videos were very boring. It didn't keep me very entertained. There were too many videos of people talking. Their "sad stories" this year were not very good. Through out the whole presentation I was just watching the clock and it couldn't of ended quick enough. They always do a very good job of using all the technological resources they can, but their topic "control" was very boring. Over all their presentation wasn't the best for them, but compared to different presentations it was very good.

9/11

I think that they really do need to do a lot though it may seem direspectful to others not showing a lot of sympathy in my thoughts would be more disrepectful than not mentioning it. I don't think there is too much you could possible do. Though whatever you do and say will change anything from that day it could possible help. I think the president should make the higher desicion to know what to do and what he think is right and wrong. It would be wrong for people to blow the whole day off and try to forget what happen because of what happened 3000 died and many others did sent over to fight in battle. It would feel right for those know as hero to go up and tell their story. I think it is awful that corpotations are trying to make money off of 9/11.  I believe that doing as much as you can to remember this day you should to show how sorry you truly are.

Blogging Safely

There are very many issues with social networks on the internet. Anything you put out on the internet can be seen by anyone. Cyberbulling is a big problem. This is a legit issue because so have been bullied so much they committed suicide. Other dangers that arent talked about in the text are some blog site can be personally harmful. Teens should practice safe blogging by not putting our all your information (where you live, go to school) on the internet. Also when you do say stuff about people online it is up there for ever so when you do go to look for a job the employer can see that. Rules that should be inforced are no person informantion and blogs should be monitered on a weekly basis.

Chapter One

Over years technology has really changed. Mass communication is the process of designing cultural messages and stories and delivering them to large and diverse audiences through media channels as old and distinctive as the printed book and as new and converged as the Internet. The big invention that started the change was the telegraph in the 1840's. This really change how we communicate today. It use to be the only way could talk to someone is either face to face or sending a letter that would take forever to get there. Today we have multiple ways to communicate such as texting, facebook and email. People dont realize how much of a competition there is in between different technologies.Today Tv is competing with internet and the news paper is competing with phones. Mass Media, the channels of communication, are everywhere in life. 
     There are many changes between the two post modern and mordern time periods. Things have really changed. People can communicate globally instead of just nationally. In post modern we have thing like internet and phones that allows us to do work outside of the office. Working global is a big part of todays world.
