Propaganda

posted Oct 17, 2011, 10:43 AM by Gabrielle Ledferd

On this website i learned many things. Such as all the timeline and everything happened. Things I wouldnt have known without this website. On the timeline i learned many new things such has what all Hitler did to lead up to the Holocaust. One thing i learned is "The Nazi Party wins 230 seats in German parliamentary elections." I didn't think there would be that many people in the Nazi Party. I didn't realize that there were people to this day who still have scars from being in those camps, and the scars on their hearts from losing people they loved such as mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and etc. My heart goes out for these people. I feel that no matter how long they live the pain will never go away and they wil always feel the pain of losing their loved ones. I think this is a really good website because it give you tons of information in one place about the Holocaust. Propaganda:
 
 
This is an example of propaganda because they are showing that women are strong to do whatever men can so they are tring to impower women.
 
 
This picture is trying to show that more people want peace and not war.
 

Pepsi

I think that the pepsi assembly is a very good way to get students attention. I feel that teenagers don't understand or grasp the facts that happen everyday. It lets them grasp the life problems that they might not deal with. They take real stories and show them to the world. The most imporant part is they want the pepsi assembly to touch each student some students are more likely to be touched then others and some just don't care at all. They can be hateful and mean but the ones it does touch these assemblies touch them deeper than anything.

9/11

The problem with the ten year memorial of 9/11 is that no one knew how to do it. Everyone was worried that it "But experts wonder whether the public will be able to draw a firm line between a television special and a 9/11 memorial wine" People who try to make money off of this are bogus, because yes some of the money is going towards something good but it would easily be more. I don't think that it is a way on whine but more as a respectful way to remember the many people who lost their lives do to what happened. All the families and loved ones that lost someone, to them i feel like this was needed. They need to feel like we didn't just forget what happened but to honor the life's lost. 

Chapter 1

While i was reading chapter 1 i realized how much technologically has changed over the past years and how it seems to be better than when we didn't have them. In chapter 1 in goes into depth of all the values and such about technology. I think that without the technology we would have a harder time with our research and talking about the new findings and everything would be harder and take longer to do/ hear about.

Media Concerns

posted Sep 12, 2011, 9:14 AM by Gabrielle Ledferd

Some of the troubles with teenagers blogging is that they say things that they may not mean. They may be upset about something and say mean/ hurtful things about others on their blogs that will stay on there forever. It could come back and haunt you when you're older and it may effect your life. Such as if you're trying to get a job and they see this blog you did when you were 17 and mad at your best friend and ranted about what they did and said nasty things about that person.  There are many things that happen in a teenagers life that they might blog about. It's not a safe place for people to just say whatever they want. Blogging is a great way to express your thoughts about subjects but it's also a place where things that don't need to be said are. Teens are reactive people who act then think about what they did/ say. Which is never a good thing because they may regret saying somethings.  Some rules would be to limit what the teens website access, watch over what they are doing on the websites, and block the blog websites off the schools websites so that the teens can't blog during school hours and then they will have time to think about what they are going to say before they go and rant about it.
