I learned that a propaganda is used to persade the people. They made the people believe that the jews we bad and causing bad things to happen. This is a good example of what the Nazis did to the jews with propaganda

Pepsi Assembly

posted Oct 7, 2011, 6:31 AM by Dylan Calhoon

I thought the assembly was very strong and got the point across very well. It was sad to hear what happen to the family's but sometimes like that is the only thing that will change people from doing the wrong thing. It did a really good job using movies and explaining everything very well. You always have to watch what you say because words are very powerful.

9/11 reaction

I thought it was a very emotional video. I thought it would be good video to show in the future to show younger people. It was a very surreal video and showed what people were doing while it happened.

Trends of the Internet

The first trend that I noticed when i looked at the survey is that everybody agreed to the disclaimer. The second trend that i saw was that all the people did actually read a newspaper is from the Sj-r. Most of the people got their information from the internet which was not a big surprise to me. One trend that did surprise me was that a lot of people watch local television. I found that most people listened to the radio the most in the morning.

Blogging Responsibility

posted Aug 30, 2011, 6:34 PM by Dylan Calhoon

What are some of the potential dangers of blogging discussed in these texts?
    They talked about how you should be careful of what you post because everyone can see it especially you address and other personal information. You also will have to be careful for things such as cyber bullying.  
Which of these concerns are legitimate? Why or why not?
     All of these concerns are legitimate because it is happening everyday and there's no real way to stop it.
What other dangers are there in blogging that were not discussed in the texts?
    It pretty much covered everything you just need to make sure your not posting anything that you wouldn't want anyone else to know.
What should students keep in mind in order to practice responsible blogging?
    They need to make sure that their not saying anything that could get them in trouble with the school or with their work. 
Suggest 2-3 rules you think would be appropriate for the class to follow as part of a blog policy.
The first rule for the class to follow would be to always watch what you say to not hurt or disrespect other people. The second rule would be not to put your address and  other important information out there. 

Chapter 1 Mass Media

posted Aug 29, 2011, 6:41 AM by Dylan Calhoon

    Chapter one is about how media evolved. At first all the communication was oral so it was slow and people often would never find out somethings. When the print revolution happened this helped people to start reading more and more because books became more affordable. This helps because it would help people become more educated. People would also find things out that were happing a little bit faster then it being told orally.  
    When the internet finally came along it started to speed up the way you find out current events by being able to read the newspaper online. Then the internet helped change this even more by bringing social media sites to everyone. This is good thing because people can find out more events as soon as they happen. Now we can get things whether its from twitter, Facebook, or some other social media site almost as soon as they happen. I didn't like the culture as a skyscraper because I didn't agree with what they said. The things they put as high culture isn't even that popular. The things that are in the middle are more popular then anything above.
